  • At last year's Primal, a guest grabs a knife and lends a hand.
A bunch of butchers and chefs will be wielding cleavers against major protein at Primal in Napa this weekend, a repeat of last year's event in the same outdoor location. A bacon taste-off is planned, and expect a slew of oysters and meat-centric nibbles. Adult beverages provided by the Alembic and Magnolia, with wines from several local boutique wineries. The partial chef and meat-cutter lineup includes Ryan Farr, Dave the Butcher, Todd Humphries (Martini House), Duskie Estes (zazu restaurant + farm / bovolo), Peter McNee (Poggio), Mark Pasternak (Devil's Gulch Ranch), Aaron London (Ubuntu), and Matt Kerley (Magnolia Brew Pub). Some of the proceeds benefit a local vocational firefighter training program for youth.

  • 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.'"
