  • The yearly Slow Food fundraiser attracts a crush of international winemakers.
Clear your calendar, Slow Food-slash-wine geeks: the Golden Glass is due next month. This is the seventh year for the swirl of sustainable grapes and noshes, the primary fundraiser for Slow Food San Francisco and its focus on school gardens and school lunch. This year's Golden Glass is expected to attract 100 sustainable wine producers from abroad, all with an interest in keeping alive or reviving the indigenous varieties of their regions. Nibbles from local restaurants and other artisanal producers, though the vendor list is TBA. There are a handful of winemaker dinners happening June 10 and 11 in advance of the main event June 12 at Fort Mason. Info is currently online for the June Acquerello Teramo Italy dinner on June 11, where $100 yields dinner and a wine pairing. Details on scoring advance tickets 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.'"
