  • November's Feast of Words.
This month's installment of Feast of Words: A Literary Potluck features the guest cheffery of Peter Jackson, proprietor of Canvas Underground and "member of the Ghetto Gourmet guerilla dining network," and guest storytelling by Faith Adiele, author of Coming of Age: A Multicultural Anthology and Meeting Faith: The Forest Journals of a Black Buddhist Nun. She will, appropriately enough, riff on this month's theme of "blurred identities"; we hope the chef does, too. Aspiring scribes should come prepared to also do so for a quick-write competition. Recent attention from SFGate might prompt the cautious to purchase tickets in advance, though they'll most likely be available at the door.

Feast of Words: A Storytelling Potluck
When: Tue., Jan. 4, 7-9 p.m.
Where: SOMArts, 934 Brannan (at Eighth St.), 863-1414
Cost: $10 advance, $12 at door, or $5 with potluck item

  • 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.'"
