From Produce to Production: New Traditions in Bay Area Food Culture

When: Sat, Feb. 19, 1-4 p.m.

Where: Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, 701 Mission (at Third St.), 978-2787

Cost: Free

The rundown: Judging by the food talent YBCA lined up for this Saturday round table ― Bryant Terry, Leif Hedendal, and Novella Carpenter ― the local food culture's new traditions skew subterranean, goaty, vegan, and firmly rooted in Oakland. This kickoff conversation in YBCA's annual, four-month BAN6 series, also features panel time with some of the artists on exhibit, moderated by exec director Kenneth Foster. As for food itself, rather than talk about it, details are sketchy, though a YBCA spokeswoman tells SFoodie that Terry will be whipping something up as part of his presentation. Oh, and he's throwing together a big batch of his signature lemonade, offered free to anyone feeling parched from all the brainy talk.

  • 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.'"
