Not that Olive Oyl.
  • Not that Olive Oyl.

Where: The Pasta Shop, 1786 Fourth St., Berkeley, 510-250-6004

When: Sat., June 4, noon-3 p.m.

Cost: Free

The rundown: So it's not actually called EVOO-Fest, but we think the "Third Annual California Extra Virgin Olive Oil Festival" would be catchier if you could announce it like a monster truck rally. Tomorrow in Berkeley, this free celebration will wash you in a bath of the finest local olive oil (figuratively, of course). From 1 to 1:30 p.m. will be a discussion of why California olive oil kicks everyone else in the keister. At 2 is a cooking demonstration on how to saute, poach, confit, and even deep-fry. Throughout the event, you'll have the chance to meet over 10 top-shelf producers and feast hearty at an "olive oil ice cream bar" (!). Rachael Ray would weep tears of pure EVOO.

  • 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.'"
