Unlike pots set to boil, trees bear fruit even when they're being watched, and around these parts, when they do, the watchers at SF Glean swoop in like friendly pigeons of sustainability to clean up the excess.

SF Glean is a volunteer group dedicated to harvesting fruit and nuts from city trees (if necessary, with approval from the trees' owners) and donating the salvaged bushels and pecks to area nonprofits. If you're keen on participating, download the fliers, and join the Google group.

  • 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.'"
