Northern California Is Turning into Northern Italy 

Wednesday, Sep 8 2010
What the world needs now: more farmers' markets. Well, that and doctor-approved reasons to take Dilaudid. At the new North Beach Farmers' Market, the center of Little Italy gets bountiful, featuring local and organic fruit, vegetables, and farm goodies. Organizing nonprofit group Urban Table makes a point of including food other than produce, like honeys, spices, and local specialties. This means there could be fresh pasta and maybe even sausages. And cheese, mmmm. No pharmaceuticals, because as Urban Table's website says, "We hope to inspire families and communities to learn healthy habits and value local, organic, and sustainable farming practices." We love sweet love it.
Sundays, 9 a.m. Starts: July 18. Continues through Oct. 24, 2010

  • 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.'"
