The Art of Eating, Ed Behr's prescient preoccupation.
  • The Art of Eating, Ed Behr's prescient preoccupation.
If Art of Eating editor and publisher Ed Behr were the subject of a feature film, Taste is the Place wouldn't ― with apologies to Sun Ra ― be a bad title. Since launching his quarterly 24 years ago, the former carpenter has made the connection between the taste of food ― everything from albondigas to vin jaune ― and where it comes from (as well as the people behind its creation and preparation) his focus. It's a preoccupation that feels fairly prescient, considering the perspective's current prominence. Behr will be kicking it at

Omnivore on Thursday, August 19, talking taste with all comers. It's a small place, as you likely know, so show up early.

  • 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.'"
