As reported earlier today, Samin Nosrat is planning an epic series of simultaneous bake sales April 2 to raise funds for Japan disaster relief. In the meantime, Chronicle Books is stepping up with a sale of its own this Monday, Mar. 21, in its lobby at 680 Second Street in SOMA. Food and drink publicity manager David Hawk tells SFoodie it's a Chronicle Books tradition to raise money via bake sales for a variety of causes, and last year employees went public with a sale to help victims of Haiti's quake. Monday's haul ― from sales of goodies baked by Chronicle Books staff, as well as sweets donated by Poco Dolce ― will end up with the American Red Cross. There'll be a jar you can stuff with additional donations, too.

Bakesale to Help Japan

When: Mon., Mar. 21, 11 a.m.-2 p.m.

Where: Chronicle Books lobby, 680 Second St. (at Townsend)

  • 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.'"
