Sandor Katz and Wild Fermentation

Where: Omnivore Books on Food, 3885a Cesar Chavez (at Church), 282-4712

When: Fri., May 13, 6-7 p.m.

Cost: Free

The rundown: If you're a fermentation fetishist like Sandor Ellix Katz, no doubt you long ago calendar-alerted May 13 and brewed up a special batch of Nepalese rice beer to put down for the afterparty. If you're more of a fermentation amateur, here's a tip: Showing up at Friday evening's live appearance by Katz (feel free to call him Sandorkraut) might offer all the inspiration you need to whip up a mess of black-eyed pea-oat-seaweed tempeh. Sandorkraut's enthusiasm for natural fermantation in bread, pickles, yogurt, miso, kimchi, and other products of wild-yeast industriousness is, well: spritzy. Maybe Omnivore's Celia Sack will crack a window or something.

  • 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.'"
