Porter's Head: Rapper Porter Ray on His Latest Hip-Hop Opus, 'Eye of the Beholder'

None His talent caught the eye and ears of a kindred spirit, Ishmael Butler of Shabazz Palaces and Digable Planets, who clearly saw much of himself in the young upstart. Indeed, Porter Ray possesses a similarly skewed vision of hip-hop upheld by his far more experienced mentor. But Ray is wise beyond his years, exhibiting a firm sense of self which translates effortlessly in the recording studio. Butler, also an A&R at Sub Pop Records, brought the young rapper onboard at the label in 2015. Ray'...

Neko Case Defies Convention in Oakland

None The Fox Theater in Uptown Oakland always has something of a resplendent aura thanks to the restored theater's gold leaf interior and the golden Buddha-like figures that flank the stage.

Mochi Tsuki

I got crazy for mochi on a trip to Hawaii. I’m pretty sure Happy Hearts mochi was my introduction and specifically, it was the chocolate haupia (coconut pudding) that sent me round the bend. Mochi became my go to treat on all my trips to Hawaii. I ate mochi from Two Ladies Kitchen for dinner one night when I was staying in Hilo, and more than once I’ve snarfed down one piece over my limit after visiting Kansai Yamata. No visit to Hawaii is complete without a belly full of pillowy fresh mochi. If...
