Might we actually be living in the epicenter of great kombucha? Add Petaluma's LonjeviTea to a growing list of local companies offering a worthwhile twist on the probiotic tea. Brewed with yerba maté rather than the usual black tea, it still packs a powerful and stimulating kick, but with less potential jitteriness for the caffeine sensitive. We enjoy the Gravenstein apple version, a lovely daytime alternative to your alcoholic cider drinks at night (with a hint of alcohol taste due to the fermentation). It's also available in ginger and chamomile varieties.

  • 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.'"
