  • Despite all the kilowatts, Doc's Clock skews green.
Usually, we hit the bar to avoid thinking about heady issues like sustainability and the greening of our planet. Well, a -- you guessed it -- green consulting firm may get us to modify that just a tad, because, hey, even that after-work mojito can do more than just impair your judgment. It can mess up the planet.

Green & Tonic is a startup that works with bar owners to reduce waste and energy use, helping with everything from biodegradable straws to composting -- hey! The G&T firm (gotta say, it's a catchy name) is also into local and sustainable adult bevies. Tomorrow, the Green & Tonic folks are putting on what they're calling a Zerowasted Pub Crawl to the following "green" bars: Doc's Clock, Casanova Lounge, and Elixir. Expect discounted drinks, a green auction, and a sustainable scavenger hunt. It starts at Doc's Clock (2575 Mission at 22nd St.) at 4 p.m., Saturday, September 19, heads to Casanova (527 Valencia at 16th St.) at 5:30, then on to Elixir (3200 16th St. at Guerrero) at 7 p.m. Feel better already? Wait'll you get a few sustainable drinks in you.

  • 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.'"
