Hey, everybody, hurry! There's free Blarf babies in San Francisco! It may not sound appetizing, but don't be scurred: That's just the name for Danny Gabriner's sourdough starter, descendants of which he's offering for free through the Web site of his forthcoming bakery Sour Flour.

If you're really serious about getting into making bread, Gabriner sells a $50 baker's kit that includes everything he thinks is needed to fashion perfect loaves, from instructions and ingredients to containers and half sheet pans. But if you just want your own Sour Blarf, Bastard Blarf, Little Blarfarella, or Bo Blarf (all real Blarf baby names in the Blarf Family Tree), Gabriner will hook you up gratis, a gesture of good faith towards building a better baking community.

Still sound like too much work, lazypants? Gabriner is also more than halfway through a goal he set in May to give away 1000 free loaves of his own bread, so you can simply request a free, already-baked loaf. He blogged his top 20 reasons for doing this, including "fun" and "good karma."

  • 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.'"
