You probably don't know this unless you're a sommelier, a German representative of the European Union, or just a serious wino, but this week (June 16 -- 22) is being billed as Riesling Week and in wine shops and restaurants from NYC to, well, San Francisco (Chicago and Vegas too) people are corking top quality Rieslings from Germany, Austria, and Alsace. It's part of a joint program between Wines of Germany and the European Union to push German wines stateside, so it's not exactly part of a grand old tradition, but still it's wine -- in very affordable tasting form, I might add -- which is cool. So start appreciating German wine this Thursday, June 18, at William Cross Wine Merchants (2253 Polk) in Russian Hill where from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. they'll be pouring lots of tasty white wines for your quaffing delight. $15 per person. For information call 346-1314.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
