Personalities on what organizers are calling both sides of Slow Food will participate in a panel tomorrow night at the S.F. Public Library's Koret Auditorium (100 Larkin at Grove). We can't guarantee sparks, but the debate does sound intriguing. The event kicks off at 6:45 p.m., and includes author/documentarian Douglas Gayeton, who recently launched the book Slow: Life in a Tuscan Town (Welcome Books, $50), moderator Sarah Rich, farmer/producer Casey Havre, chef Michelle Fuerst, Bi-Rite's Sam Mogannam, and Slow Food S.F. leader Dava Guthmiller. Panelists will likely mull over issues like Slow Food's relevance for families, NGO's, and farmers; local and sustainable agriculture; and what Slow Food should do to support the food community. A Slow book signing will follow, and then you can head over to 18 Reasons (593 Guerrero at 18th St.) in the Mission for a reception and exhibition of Gayeton's prints, 8-10 p.m.

  • 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.'"
