  • Appease apartment dwellers with potted herbs, citrus trees, or seeds for next year's garden at the Flora Grubb sale.

  • Commuters will love the locally made S'well bottle, which has separate hot and cold compartments and claims to keep hot drinks hot for 12 hours and cool drinks (including wine) for 24 hours.
  • Locavores will be all about a local food wheel so they always know what's in season.
  • Get cute overload at Gamma Go, a shop that sells things like unicorn bottle openers and pot leaf pot holders.

  • 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.'"
