Eat the Castro 

Wednesday, Aug 18 2010
What's special about the Castro Farmers' Market? Nothing -- and that's what's so great about it. (The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence show up sometimes, but that's pretty much it, far's we know.) Farmers' markets don't need to be special. What they need to be is in your neighborhood, and to have healthy, fresh, direct-to-you fruits and vegetables. This one has all that, plus the usual cute little "live music and activities" you've come to expect from a market. We love how farmers' markets are ceasing to be special. Don't treat this one special, just bring your regular old bags from home, buy your ho-hum heirloom tomatoes, and rejoice inwardly like normal.
Wednesdays, 3 p.m. Starts: April 7. Continues through Dec. 22, 2010

  • 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.'"
