Looks like Thursday's Underground Farmers' Market finally has a venue, a private residence in the Mission at 2755 Bryant (at 26th St.). Earlier this month, we reported that Iso Rabins of forageSF was trying to organize the city's first-ever local foods shopfest. Free and open to anybody who shows up between 5 and 11 p.m., the market will feature 10 vendors selling foods and other items you can't pick up at Whole Foods, plus chestnuts, beer, and wine (for purchase), and a band ― Floating Felt ― scheduled to jam at 8:30.

Vendors include forageSF itself, offering acorn flour, wild mushrooms and fennel seeds, and wild berry jams. Slow Jams will be hawking more jam. Will Schrom is planning to show up with sarsparilla, Captain Blankenship with soaps and salves, and a woman named Kelsey is offering gingerbread houses. Garden Fare is selling edible garden gift boxes, the Golden Crust a variety of pies, and The Girl from Empanada is offering ― duh ― empanadas. Lauren and Jon Bowne will be dispensing homemade Jewish deli fare (corned beef sandwiches, matzoh ball soup), and Five Flavors Herbs is selling wild foraged tinctures. Questions? Check out the market's Facebook page, or e-mail Rabins at

  • 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.'"
