As If! 

Wednesday, Apr 9 2014

If you still think of Alicia Silverstone as the meddlesome rich girl from Clueless, you just haven't been paying attention. For years, this San Francisco native has been an outspoken advocate for the environmental causes that fuel her most personal work: The hit animated kids' show Braceface, which Silverstone produced and starred in, won an Environmental Media Award and a Genesis award from the Humane Society; and her debut book, New York Times bestseller The Kind Diet, earned Silverstone a Heart of Green award from the Hearst Corporation for bonding entertainment and engagement. With over 7 billion people on the planet, it seems unlikely that Silverstone's newest project would address infertility but, evidently, one in six couples is affected by the problem. In The Kind Mama, Silverstone takes on the fertility industry, which has been compared by some to Big Oil in its desire to expand its market regardless of long-term consequence. Tonight, Silverstone brings home baby with simple adjustments to diet, lifestyle, and viewpoint.

  • 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.'"
