Yesterday's Chronicle Books Bakesale to Help Japan? Some three dozen bakers ended up donating treats (staff, spouses, and neighbors, as well as Poco Dolce, Sweet Constructions, and Angel Cakes), says CB's David Hawk, netting just over $2,300. Chronicle Books doubled that figure for its donation, yielding a grand total of $7,890 for the American Red Cross. "We are very pleased," Hawk says, "and send a huge thanks to all of those who baked, bought, and donated!"

  • 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.'"
