  • Napa's Long Meadow Ranch is one of the venues of Outside Lands' new food pairing series.

The 7th annual Outside Lands Music and Arts Festival is set to rock Golden Gate Park this August. But there's no reason to wait until then to get your fill of all the frivolity it has to offer. OSL announced today the schedule and lineup of its Summer Pairing Series, uniting some of the Bay Area's most vibrant flavors with local artists and venues.

The series launches in Napa on Sunday, July 13th at the Long Meadow Ranch Winery & Farmstead (738 Main St.). The St. Helena-based vineyard emphasizing organic, sustainable growing will host an afternoon of farm-to-table dining accompanied by crunchy beats from folk rock band, Woods. The afternoon includes a complimentary wine tasting, beginning at 2 p.m. Advanced tickets are available now for $35.

Just three short days later, on Wednesday the 16th, San Francisco's own Proposition Chicken (1750 Market) pairs up with Firestone Walker Brewing Company to offer a four course menu built around local fare and craft beer. Kale salad lines up along Pivo Pilsner, crisped matzoh ball soup will be served along Firestone's award-winning Easy Jack Session IPA, and free range rotisserie chicken with honey buttered biscuits find their match in Wookey Jack Black IPA. Dessert marries chocolate eggs with Parabola -- a barrel-aged Russian Imperial Stout. The soundtrack will highlight the 2014 Outside Lands lineup. There will be two evening seatings, the first at 6, the second at 8, offered at $35 a head, excluding tax and tip.

The final affair takes place at the Beast and the Hare (1001 Guerrero) in the Mission on Tuesday, July 29th. The dinner centers around a most unusual pairing: Italian delicacies such as charcuterie, offal, and grilled meats served alongside Japanese-style rice wine, from Portland purveyor SakéOne. Unexpected? Yes. A match made in heaven? We shall see. Pricing and reservation details are available through the restaurant at 821-1001. Like the festival itself, a few musical surprises await.

  • 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.'"
