The White House Organic Farm Project travels the country to share the dream of building an organic garden on the lawn of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. The group braved the mean streets of San Francisco on Friday night, getting their beautiful optical illusion of a school bus unceremoniously tagged with graffiti while parked in the Mission District. Yet, by Saturday afternoon, when they made their first appearance at the Slow Food Rocks festival, they were undeterred from the task at hand: Gathering signatures to present to Washington.

We asked TheWhoFarm's Daniel Bowman Simon to explain their mission to balance the presidential diet and "reconnect our country to its rock 'n roll and agricultural roots."

  • 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.'"
