  • An art, clothing, produce, good vibes -- and now bean -- dispenser in the Mission.
These days, art, food, and apparel don't amount to more than a hill of beans. Tomorrow, from noon until 3 p.m., or while legumes last, food activist and artist Mark Andrew Gravel will be serving up bowls of the soupy stuff at Gravel & Gold, a new gallery, shop, good vibes epicenter, and CSA drop-off location set up in the old Minnie Wilde space (3266 21st St. at Valencia). A Meatpaper player, the principal behind Agrarian Art Labs, and publisher of Food + Sex Magazine, Gravel will scoop you either black beans with rice or gallo pinto, a prominent national dish of Nicaragua, depending on, presumably, his chefly whim. Come scope the luscious Eatwell Farm produce, get pre-colonial on some beans, meet people, and, you know, talk about things.

  • 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.'"
