Last weekend thousands of Bay Area food lovers descended on Oakland's Jack London Square for the fourth annual Eat Real Fest. More than 50 local food vendors were on hand to provide bites of their food for $5 or less, there were plenty of craft beers and wines on hand, and despite high summer temperatures and enormous crowds, everyone had a good time. We sent a photographer to bring you this slideshow of the highlights of the Eat Real Festival, and now have brought some of our favorite photos to the blog.

  • 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.'"
