What: Community Food Security Coalition Conference

Where: Oakland

When: Nov. 4-8

Cost: Varies

The rundown: This year, the 15th annual Community Food Security Coalition Conference comes to Oakland from it's home base in Portland. Naturally. The conference promises to bring together over a thousand people from the forefront of building a just, diverse, environmentally sound, and economically sustainable food system. Read: These are good people who give a shit!

Sessions will look at the past and future of the food movement, the Food and Farm Bill, and lots more. Unfortunately, registration ended on Oct. 16, but luckily, there are lots of events that the public can still attend. They look really great, and include film festival, food-specific Art Murmur, and a bunch of free workshops. The price is right! Your Sustainable Future is looking so bright, you might not have to wear shades all the time because of Global Warming. Hey-oh!

Update: Registration for the conference is still open. Advance registration ended Oct. 16, but people can still register on their 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.'"
