Why has raw cheese captured the imagination of cheeselovers the world over? Alas, I wasn't aware that it had. I'm so behind the times. The good news is that you can find out what all the fuss is about this Sunday, June 1, at Bar Bambino's (2931 16th St) second Monthly Cheese and Wine Tasting. Head cheesemonger Colin Shaff will present four tasting sets to illustrate the differences between raw and pasteurized cheeses, along with thrilling tales about the many predicaments of artisanal cheese production. Sounds exciting. Thankfully, as the name suggests, there will be plenty of wine involved, with owner Christopher Losa pouring some of Italy's finest with each course. The event runs 3:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.; $45 per person. Call 701-VINO (8466) for reservations.

  • 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.'"
