SalmonAid Hosts a Free Traditional Tribal Salmon Bake at Ocean Beach on Friday

The Klamath Basin Coalition

refers to the Klamath Basin, which encompasses areas in Northern California and Southern Oregon, as the "Western Everglades." The organization's Web site reports that there are

still salmon species exclusive to that river system and details why

energy must be put into restoring the area into a sustainable ecosystem.

We'll get a rare chance to taste salmon from there as Native American Tribes of the Klamath Basin join SalmonAid (the latter's motto: "Restore rivers, recover salmon, rebuild jobs") for a traditional tribal salmon bake at Ocean Beach this Friday, June 19. The festivities start at 6 p.m., and the star of the show -- Yurok fishermen-caught Klamath salmon -- will be served at 6:30.

The free Ocean Beach event is a special kick off to the two-day SalmonAid Festival,

held on June 20-21 from noon to 7 p.m. in Oakland's Jack London Square.

Admission is also free, though there will be a sustainable menu for

purchase, including a Saigon salmon sandwich, a halibut Reuben, and

Mediterranean stuffed sardines. (Thanks to Edible San Francisco for the tip.)

  • 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.'"
