Steve Sando is a frequent presence at the Ferry Plaza Farmer's Market with his Napa-based company Rancho Gordo, which offers several varieties of beans in vibrant colors that make a potentially dull food staple seem alive with possibility and flavor. Vanessa Barrington, Sando's co-author in Heirloom Beans, will talk about their book and cook up some of its recipes at a special free event from 3 to 4 p.m. on Saturday, January 10 at Omnivore Books (3885A Cesar Chavez). -- Tamara Palmer

  • 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.'"
