For the Love of Tomatoes 

Wednesday, Sep 3 2008
Some people think tomatoes are green, square, and crunchy. They "don't like tomatoes." In our opinion, such people have a) been robbed, and b) never tasted a tomato. Amy Goldman is a tomato expert, and we're pretty sure she'd agree with us. As an authority turned to by aficionados like Martha Stewart, Goldman grows 500 varieties of tomato on her farm. If you've been weirded out by recent tomato recalls, if you're one of those poor souls mentioned above, or if you're already growing Sungolds, Yellow Brandywines, and Red Zebras in your backyard, Goldman has encouragement. She's concerned, like so many food and plant lovers are, about biodiversity, so she'll also talk about heirloom cultivars and becoming a seed saver.

  • 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.'"
