  • A Mangalitsa hog -- your, um, date for the Pork Prom.
This sounds like a prom worth getting dressed up for. Pork Prom ― a sort of CSA pork party ― will take over Blue Bottle's coffee roastery near Jack London Square in Oakland (300 Webster at Third St.). Here's the deal: Order in advance, and you can pick up 5- or 10-pound mixed boxes of pastured, heritage-breed pork (Berkshires, Ossabaws, and Mangalitsas) from Shasta Valley Farm in Gazella, Calif. Each box contains chops, ribs, and fresh sausage. Smaller boxes are $35; bigger ones are $60. You can also order 10- to 20-pound bone-in, skin-on hams ($6 per pound). Co-organizers are Live Culture (the folks behind the Eat Real Fest) and Sonoma Direct. The prom runs from 9 a.m. to noon. Expect bacon and sausage for nibbling, as well as Blue Bottle joe. No word if there'll be slow-dancing to "Forever Young." Reserve hams and hog boxes here.

  • 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.'"
