Party on Block 18

Where: 18th Street between Dolores and Guerrero

When: Sat., Sept. 29, 12-6 p.m.

Cost: $20 for books of food/beverage tickets (items priced $2 and up); tickets available on-site or in advance via Brown Paper Tickets

The rundown: Bi-Rite Market hosts a bi-annual block party to raise money for six neighboring non-profits: 826 Valencia, The Women's Building, Nextcourse, Buen Dia Family School, Holy Family Day Home, and Bi-Rite affiliate 18 Reasons. For those unfamiliar with this particular block of 18th Street, it's quite delicious, and the participation of most of the great food and beverage businesses in the area (including Namu Gaji, Delfina, Tartine Bakery, Kasa Indian Eatery, Bi-Rite Creamery, and Out The Door) adds up to a very solid tasting event.

  • 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.'"
