Gluttonously creative San Francisco's answer to the Tour de France, the Tour de Fromage is sure to be the highlight of the numerous "chain of events" hosted by the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition.

"The ride will be moderately difficult: Around 10 to 15 miles, but at a leisurely pace," advised organizer Juliana Gallin. She also said that, because the Coalition likes its riders to be surprised, the exact route is kept under wraps -- cheesecloth? -- until they're actually on the Tour. After the last shop stop, riders will picnic and share their booty, so bringing cash for making cheese purchases is recommended at this otherwise free event. The Tour de Fromage takes place on Saturday, May 30, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.; meet at the statue on the corner of Fell and Baker in the Panhandle.

  • 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.'"
