This weekend, Ferment Change starts bubbling up in Oakland with a series of microbe-centric events, lessons, and tasting parties to benefit longstanding urban farming and environmental justice group City Slicker Farms.

With kombucha trades on Craigslist and Facebook trending harder than Tiger Woods, self-canned jam a Christmas-present go-to, and home-brewed beer practically a rite of passage for the post-trustafarian set, this year's edition of Ferment Change couldn't come at a riper time. The merriment lasts through May. For starters, there's a "culture swap" Saturday (tomorrow) in Oakland's Fruitvale neighborhood. Mixed drink and food purchases will, naturally, help support City Slicker Farms programs. There's a semi-secretive free beer-brewing demo on Sunday too. Write Chris to RSVP and snag the address.

Check out next week's happenings here, and stay tuned (or check the Awesome Pickle blog) for more. Details on tomorrow's event after the jump.

  • 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.'"
