Varietal tasting time is here, winos! Get your sip on at the Pinot (that'd be Noir) Days Festival, which runs tonight through Sunday. The main event is Sunday's four-hour grand tasting at Fort Mason's Festival Pavilion, 1 p.m.-5 p.m. Fort Mason seems to be considered the primo (and rather obvious) spot for such events. Tickets are $50 for the grand tasting, with 400 samples from 200 Pinot Noir producers. Advanced tickets are highly recommended. Other related Pinot Days events include schmantzy dinners at Pres a Vi in the Presidio, as well as concerts. Cost: $80-$150, which suggests there's more than one way to get your sip on.

  • 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.'"
