World Veg Festival

Where: San Francisco County Fair Building, 1199 Ninth Ave. (at Lincoln), 831-5500

When: Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 6-7, 10:30 a.m. to 9 p.m.

Cost: $10

The rundown: The annual World Veg Festival, hosted by the San Francisco Vegetarian Society, is always a good opportunity for grazing on new and novel vegan products, stocking up on the latest veg T-shirts and stickers (ranging from humorous to shock propaganda), and getting in some people-watching before spending the rest of the afternoon wandering Golden Gate Park.

This year, the event gets, um, beefier with the hosting of the 40th IVU International Vegetarian Congress. That means a longer schedule that includes the option to take in more speakers, workshops, and demos. There is also a vegan catered dinner each night at 6:45 p.m. for an additional cost of $26.

  • 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.'"
