Lisa Jervis was the founder and original publisher of indie publication Bitch magazine (subtitled Feminist Response to Pop Culture), which began in 1996 in San Francisco and is now a quarterly based in Portland. Jervis currently works at the Center for Media Justice in Oakland, an excellent vantage point from which to think about eating. Her new book Cook Food: A Manualfesto for Easy, Healthy, Local Eating demystifies the cooking process for the scared and suggests sustainable recipes for any skill level. Jervis will celebrate the release of the book at the Green Arcade (1680 Market at Gough) on Friday, July 24, and at Modern Times (888 Valencia at 20th St.) on August 12. Both events are free and begin at 7 p.m.

  • 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.'"
