Paul Greenberg Discusses the Future of Fish

Where: Omnivore Books

When: Tuesday, June 7, 6 p.m.

Cost: Free

The rundown: Paul Greenberg, sustainable fish guru and author of Four Fish: The Future of the Last Wild Food, will speak about his book and also about how there are approximately no fish left because of overfishing and pollution. Humans much eat fish or else we'll die, so it's important to figure out how to turn out salmon, sea bass, cod, and tuna in ways that don't continue to destroy their wild populations and the entire ecosystem. For example, did you know that 26 pounds of other sea animals are killed and tossed back into the ocean for every one pound of shrimp caught? Damn. Greenberg's message isn't all doom and gloom; there's hope, if we can change the way we do things. We can do this! So, see you in a couple hours -- we'll be the ones in the back, munching on a tuno sandwich.

  • 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.'"
