Land of the Rising Shamrock

Where: Burritt Room, 417 Stockton (at Sutter), inside the Crescent Hotel

When: Thu., Mar. 17, 8 p.m.-midnight

Cost: Voluntary Red Cross donation at the door

The rundown: What happens when you combine a national U.S. Bartenders' Guild conference in town, one of the biggest drinking holidays (we're looking at you, St. Patrick), and a desire to help relief efforts in Japan? You get Land of the Rising Shamrock, an Irish- and Japanese-styled event, with all cocktail proceeds going to the Red Cross. Bartenders will be put to work, as guests from New York (Jason Littrell of Death and Co. and Hal Wolin from El Cobre) and Chicago (Debbi Peek from the Bristol), join Aaron Gregory Smith from our very own 15 Romolo to mix up cocktails with Michael Collins Irish whiskey and Gekkeikan sake. Drinking and doing good at the same time? Way better than finding a four-leaf clover.

  • 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.'"
