There's never a time when we aren't looking for an excuse to throw down on some baked goods, but we almost feel it's our civic duty to do so when it means saving animals, as in the regular SF Vegan Bakesale extravaganzas. This month's edition will give all proceeds to the mountain gorilla protection efforts of Virunga National Park and the local critter triage provided by WildCare. Local vegan cooking/baking luminaries including Brassica Supperclub, Violet Sweet Shoppe, and Sugar Beat Sweets will be joined with normally omnivorous supporters such as Bike Basket Pies and Evil Jerk Cart for an abundance of sweet and savory selections.

Part of a worldwide network, there's been some significant achievement with this localized event (and its East Bay counterpart). These Bay Area efforts have already donated into the five figures towards animal welfare charities in under a year.

  • 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.'"
