Every year on April Fool's Day, in celebration of the life of proto-food critic Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin, there are Edible Book festivals and contests all around the world. The spirit has finally landed in San Francisco, which is participating for the first time this year. Host Omnivore Books has stretched the definition a bit, creating a competition of edible art as a whole ― whether you want to render Mona Lisa in licorice whips or attempt the Bible out of beans, this will be the contest to enter. No advance sign-up is required; just bring your best to the party that evening. Details after the jump.

  • 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.'"
