The Daily Shortlist September 8
South African rock act BLK JKS make really interesting African mixed with indie rock music that soars and flies high and kicks ass and seeing them in a small venue like S.O.B.’s is definitely worth the small price of admission. Joining them are Highlife and Janka Nabay. For fans of macrobiotics, tofu, seitan and even fish, Souen is great for healthy food that won’t have you feeling like you shouldn’t have ordered that. Try the Broiled Tofu Okabe, which sees thick slices of tofu, broiled and topped with a sesame and sake paste ($11). One of the oldest bars in the city, Ear Inn offers cheap pints in a timeless environment. Walk through the doors and it’s like you’re in the early 1900s, though the occasional ringing cell phone will bring you back to reality. Possibly one of the best sandwich shops in the city, Alidoro has 40 kinds of amazing Italian sandwiches, all named.
