Sabrina Modelle says she was face down on the acupuncture table last week when she heard about the devastating Japanese quake. Modelle's currently on leave from her job at a nonprofit. "I think I was going through do-good withdrawal," she says. And since Modelle is also a food blogger, she decided to do what food bloggers do best: rally support among other food bloggers.

Her blog, The Tomato Tart, lists a growing roster of about 35 bloggers from around the world who've pledged to take part in Modelle's Online Bake Sale for Japan. On Wed., Mar. 30, bidding will go live for one day. You'll have a chance to bid on baked goods and other sweets the participating bloggers are pledging. Log the winning bid, and you'll receive a shipment from your blogger. Get it? Simple. And all the proceeds go to Second Harvest Japan.

Check out The Tomato Tart for an auction list. A few participants: Nomnivorous, Eat the Love, Nosh This, Lick My Spoon, and on and on. Oh, and if you're a blogger who wants to donate something, contact Modelle at Be generous and bid heavy.

  • 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.'"
