Every year an open panel called the Northern California Book Reviewers selects the best work by NorCal authors, published over the previous year, in the following categories: fiction, general and creative nonfiction, poetry, translation, and children's literature. The winners are announced at this annual ceremony and read short passages from their work; it's worth going just to see them all in the same room (the library is usually packed for this, but if you go early you'll have your choice of seats). Both the NCBR and the Northern California Book Awards are projects of Poetry Flash. These awards represent the efforts of many local writers and organizations, meaning much consideration goes into choosing the winners. This year's recipient of the Fred Cody Lifetime Achievement Award is Adam Hochschild, who will be the featured speaker.

    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.'"
