Punk Domestics & BCF Food Preservation Swap

Where: Blue Chair Fruit Kitchen, 4629 Martin Luther King Jr. (at 47th St.), Oakland; 510-654-BLUE

When: Fri., July 15, 6-8 p.m.

Cost: Free

The rundown: On Friday, our very own Sean Timberlake (if he allows us to assert ownership) is staging a food swap for the DIY generation, in conjunction with the Blue Chair Fruit Kitchen. It's like one of those dreamy utopian sci-fi scenarios where we've abolished currency in favor of items bearing actual value: handcrafted foodstuffs. The price of admission is the (sometimes literal) fruits of your own labor. Sean suggests you barter "as the market bears," meaning that one slim bottle of your home-brewed kombucha might fetch a quart of pickled jalapenos. All manner of preserved foods are welcome; just leave your wallet in the car. But not, you know, in plain view.

RSVP at Eventbrite

  • 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.'"
