SFoodie enjoyed eating healthy and creative vegetarian food at last year's World Veg Day, but organizers have stepped up the extracurricular excitement for 2009. This year's World Veg Festival, hosted by the San Francisco Vegetarian Society and In Defense of Animals, expands to two days, and with the extra time comes a little more playfulness with the format, including the oh-so-promising-sounding vegan speed dating session (Saturday, October 3, at 5:15 p.m.). We're not sure, however, if that playfulness will extend to the vendors hawking animal cruelty prevention buttons and bumper stickers -- they've still got to get a not-so-fun message across, after all. Saturday and Sunday, October 3-4, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. at the San Francisco County Fair Building (Ninth Ave. at Lincoln). There'll be a $6 suggested donation at the door (kids, students, seniors free).

  • 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.'"
