Flower Power

It is now officially March, and while those allergies are still dormant you should enjoy the beautiful color-blend of tropical Begonias. Every month (except for December) the California Horticultural Society hosts a plant expert and a presentation of plants. This month it's Terra Nova Nurseries' resident plant guru -- and the original "hortiholic" -- Dan Heims, a veteran of The Martha Stewart Show. His topic, Bonkers for Begonia's, brings together an epic selection of hybrid varieties while also giving you some tips on how to care for its showy flowers in different landscape settings. Where else would you learn about a plant whose names range from Tiger Paws and Pin Up, to Irene Nuss, Looking Glass, and Ambassador Rose? Heims will also share some of the rarest species of begonias, from 2-inch-tall African plants to 7-foot-tall Brazilian giants.

  • 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.'"
