  • On the itinerary: Devil's Gulch Ranch in Marin County.
Trust us, your smartphone and a Google map will not save you in the no-signal hills of West Marin, but Bay Area Green Tours is offering a food and farm tour that sounds like it won't leave you lost.

A biodiesel-fueled bus will ferry you to Devil's Gulch Ranch, County Line Harvest, and Quetzal Farm, though it starts with a literal forkful of breakfast clear across the bay in Berkeley (at Gather, same place the tour ends). Speakers from the California Alliance of Family Farmers, Sustainable Agriculture Education, and the Berkeley Student Food Collective will discuss the agricultural landscape and food justice, especially as they relate to the local economy and history.

Spokeswoman Marissa LaMagna told us the Farm to Fork tour will be an experiment. If all goes well, there'll be a tour of the Brentwood farming area in August, as well as a progressive dinner series.

Event details:

  • 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.'"
