A cheese tasting, panel discussion, and book signing are all going down at The Pasta Shop on Fourth Street (1786 Fourth St. at Hearst, Berkeley) tomorrow. Cheese artisans from Bellwether Farms, Cellars of Jasper Hill, Cowgirl Creamery, Point Reyes Farmstead Cheese, and Vermont Creamery will discuss, panel-style, while Allison Hooper (of said Vermont Butter Creamery) will sign her new book, In A Cheesemaker's Kitchen (Countryman Press, $19.95), which looks at both Vermont and California cheeses. The event runs from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.; no charge to attend. Afterwards, since you'll more than likely be all jazzed about cheese (if you weren't before) neighboring restaurant Café Rouge will be offering special menu items featuring Vermont Creamery cheeses.

  • 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.'"
