  • Kombucha home brew: Crawling with fermented goodness.
DIYers with a hippie-granola bent may be interested in tomorrow's Kombucha! class, presented by Urban Kitchen SF and held at the Women's Building (3543 18th St. at Guerrero). Kombucha is a fermented quote-unquote wellness beverage thought to contain helpful active enzymes and other good-for-you nutrients. Sweetened tea or tisane is brewed, using a S.C.O.B.Y., the symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast that transforms the tea into a bevy allegedly chock-full of goodness.

This blogger has sampled several types of commercial kombucha drinks, and has usually found them to be a refreshing, slightly herbaceous, and tangy alternative to, say, a normal cuppa joe. We feel healthier already! The Kombucha! class begins at 7 p.m. and costs $45, which includes take-home supplies (the aforementioned S.C.O.B.Y.). Sliding scale pricing is available, and spots are on a first come, first served basis. For information or to register, email

  • 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.'"
