Vegan ice cream from Maggie Mudd will be available, as well as samples of Equal Exchange chocolate, locally harvested fruit, and herb syrups. Silent auction items include private workshops on home brewing with master brewer Jim Boyd, fermenting with Finn Cunningham, butter- and jam-making with Lauren Anderson, and locally made art. Or throw down for a raffle that could win you goodies from Cowgirl Creamery, the Front Porch, Crushpad, Magnolia Pub, Spork, and Mission Pie.

  • 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.'"
