At a Gourmet-sponsored event at Copia years ago, some guests were a little surprised at how soft spoken Ruth Reichl can be onstage. Find out for yourself later this month, when Reichl will be on stage at the S.F. Jewish Community Center, talking about her latest book, For You Mom, Finally (Penguin Press, $13). Reichl is the author of Comfort Me with Apples, Tender at the Bone, Not Becoming My Mother: and Other Things She Taught Me Along the Way, and Garlic and Sapphires. Her new book is a reflection on her mother's life, and the sacrifices and pain an older generation of women endured. The 11 a.m. start time on a Tuesday means you'll have to blow off work that morning, or go to lunch afterward and ditch the office altogether.

  • 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.'"
