Terry Theise: Reading Between the Wines

Where: Omnivore Books on Food, 3885a Cesar Chavez (at Church), 282-4712

When: Thu., Jan. 20, 6-7 p.m.

Cost: Free

The rundown: In Reading Between the Wines (University of California Press, $24.95), Terry Theise argues that wine offers a sort of Skype video conference with the transcendent. From the publisher: "Theise describes how wine can be a portal to aesthetic, emotional, even mystical experience -- and he frankly asserts that these experiences are most likely to be inspired by wines from artisan producers." Naturally, point-score wines made for a global market are the devil's work ― but you knew that.

  • 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.'"
