No Salatin for You

Posted By on Fri, Jan 21, 2011 at 9:58 AM

Farmer Joel Salatin is worshipped across the country for his tireless work serving the sustainable food movement. Fittingly, he's speaking to his disciples tonight in a Berkeley church about spirituality and ethical food choices. Tickets to the event sold out faster than you can say "free range," so we thought we'd give a taste of what you're missing. Never boring, instructive without being preachy, Salatin is a dynamic public speaker who could convert the most die-hard McDonald's muncher. Check out his TED talk in 2009 (above). If you still want more, give a reread of the ethical food bible, Michael Pollan's The Omnivore's Dilemma, in which Salatin's Polyface farm features prominently. Or cook up a batch of non-GMO popcorn and settle down for a viewing of Food, Inc., the hugely influential documentary that helped enshrine the cult of Salatin. Friday night has never felt so sustainable.

  • 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.'"
