The rundown: Hey San Francisco, it's time to walk your talk. Sure, you say you're green friendly, but are you wearing your vegetables, or writing on recycled turd paper? Saturday's Green Festival brings together some of the country's greenest artisans, small businesses, and nonprofits, with plenty of healthy foodstuffs for good measure. Never fear, your options are more extensive than green magma and Chia juice; they include Indian food from Colorado, pie from Uhuru Pies in Oakland, vegan corn dogs and garlic fries from Gourmet Faire, tamales from Donna's Tamales, and much more. You can also talk sustainable seafood with the watchdogs at Monterey Bay Aquarium, sign up for an urban farming class with BioFuel Oasis, or high-five PETA for their Tempeh District gag.

Save five bucks by pre-purchasing tickets at the Green Festival website

  • 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.'"
