Maybe you thought of doing the jam class thing but didn't, got shut out of the kombucha tutorial at the Women's Building, gave in and bought bogus perennials for the backyard strip. Atone for your lack of homesteading devotion tomorrow at Green Apple, where Billee Sharp ― author of a new book about embracing DIY culture ― will hold forth.

Fix It, Make It, Grow It, Bake It (Viva Editions, $15.95) digs down into freecycling, bread and yogurt making, canning. The book's savvy enough to allay anxiety about the best way to celebrate Ratha-yatra, while not, you know, throwing out more than you can absorb in the time it takes to brew a mug of nettle tea. In other words, stop dithering and start making door sausages ― instructions on taking the first step after the jump.

Billee Sharp at Green Apple Books

Date: Sat., May 1, 2 p.m.

  • 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.'"
