Frog Hollow Farm has more than preserves, peaches, pears, and cherries to offer. In the past few years, the Brentwood farm has been pressing extra-virgin oil from its own olives. Taste the results at Sunday's harvest party at the East Bay farm, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at 11435 Brentwood Boulevard (at TK), Brentwood. Tickets are $30-$65, and include lunch (with wine from Brentwood's Bloomfield Vineyards), as well as the chance to win an orchard tour with Frog Hollow founder, farmer Al Courchesne. You could also score face time with both legendary purveyor Darrell Corti of Corti Brothers, and KCBS food and wine editor Narsai David. And if you feel like loading up on olives, you can even do a little U-pick. Advance tickets required.

  • 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.'"
