Berkeley's Kavazen is in the running for hippiest beverage title in the Bay Area with its Relaxing Experiences. It's a pretty contradictory name, too, considering that this is actually an energy drink with serious zing from kava kava root. It's also not particularly relaxing at all, though it lacks the wired jitter of other energy drinks (which even the natural ones tend to have).

The bottle boasts of hundreds of years of use of kava kava-laced beverages "in social situations and conflict resolutions." We don't exactly see how this largely apple and grape juice concoction is going to quell beef in the streets, but it sure does the trick when you want a lift without too much crank.

  • 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.'"
