Somewhere on Craigslist there is a partridge for sale. If you'd like to find a pear tree to go with it, look no further than Wiersig Garden Plants in Los Altos. The nursery is currently offering numerous varieties of deciduous fruit trees -- dwarves, semi-dwarves, and multigrafts, including Granny Smiths, Pixiecot apricots, Garden Delight nectarines, Green Gage plums, Sharp Velvet pomegranates, and Hood and Flordahome pears -- at peanut prices. Prices for the 5- to 6-foot tall specimens range from $35 to $65. No telling what that partridge will set you back.

  • 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.'"
