On Artisan Food: Kim Severson, Chad Robertson, and Sue Conley

When: Wed., Mar. 2, 8 p.m.

Where: Herbst Theatre, 401 Van Ness (at Grove), 392-4400

Cost: $21

The rundown: The notion of artisan food wasn't invented in Northern California, but we did help pioneer the idea that small-scale, handmade foods could form the nucleus of a political movement. Wednesday, two local champions of that artisanal revival ― Tartine's Chad Robertson and Cowgirl Creamery's Sue Conley ― talk it out onstage in this City Arts and Lectures event, joined by New York Times Atlanta bureau chief and ex-San Franciscan Kim Severson. Afterwards, there'll be a book signing in the Herbst lobby with Robertson (Tartine Bread) and Severson (Spoon Fed), where you can fawn, schmooze, or just raise your fist in artisan solidarity.

Tickets through City Box Office

  • 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.'"
