The rundown: Brad Thomas Parsons, the author of Bitters: A Spirited History of a Classic Cure-All, with Cocktails, Recipes, and Formulas is speaking about how great bitters are! He'll cover the history of the world's most storied elixir, from its beginning as a wanton "snake oil" to its current glory days as the ingredient that's in every cocktail at Bourbon & Branch. You'll learn a million specialty liquor fun facts that you use later to impress/annoy your friends -- that's worth more than gold in San Francisco! God willing, there will be samples.

  • 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.'"
