And for today's Most Typically San Francisco news item, we bring you this: No, it's not a new ban on kittens. Rather, Grace Slick, singer of the famous '60s S.F. psych-rock band Jefferson Airplane, is selling new artwork tomorrow night to aid the effort to legalize marijuana.

Oh, and Slick's name for the series of art she's unveiling? It is -- we kid you not -- the 420 Collection.

Said collection includes paintings and prints made specifically for the exhibition, which will be held from 7:30 to 9:30 tomorrow night at SOMA pot dispensary Sparc. A portion of each sale will go to benefit the Marijuana Policy Project, a nonprofit that advocates for legalization of marijuana for adults. And even though the exhibit is at a pot gallery, non-medical-marijuana patients can attend -- if they RSVPto LRobinson@MPP.Org.

  • 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.'"
