Tomorrow: How to Homestead

Where: Mission Recreation, 745 Treat (at 20th St.)

When: Sat., May 7, 4-10 p.m.

Cost: $5 (free with a potluck dish)

The rundown: Hitch up the wagons and head to town. Tomorrow the Mission Recreation Center hosts an old-timey day of homesteading fun, starting with a workshop on making kombucha, soda, and sauerkraut (just like your ancestors did!) from Lauren Anderson, director of Produce to the People. Next up is a bring-a-dish potluck and BBQ, with extra points for bringing vittles circa 1865 (think barley and lard). After dinner is a series of instructional movies, possibly projected onto a burlap sack, with musical accompaniment by the Sk8 Sisters. And finishing off the evening's festivities is a contra line dance. Who will lead the dance, you ask? Why it's the Knuckle Knockers, natch.

  • 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.'"
