18 Reasons is presenting two weeks of classes dedicated to veggies starting next week, a series called Unsung: Elevating Vegetables in the Modern Home Kitchen. The July 22 edition focuses on using the potentially treacherous nettle and the underutilized daikon radish, while the July 29 class hones in on the too often wasted watermelon rind and hard-to-pronounce purslane. Each class starts at 6:30 p.m., costs $65, and is taught by 18 Reasons' program director Michelle McKenzie.

Personal chef Jen Knapp is leading a two-hour Cooking of Thailand demonstration at Tante Marie's Cooking School on July 24. On her menu is beef penang curry, spicy minced chicken salad with mint and toasted rice, and hot and sour shrimp soup. The class begins at 2 p.m. and costs $75.

  • 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.'"
