Eat Their Vegetables 

Wednesday, Apr 14 2010
Gardening and growing food have gone beyond traditional farmers and ladies in broad-brimmed hats and pedal-pushers. Excitingly enough, it seems every time we turn around, there's another artist establishing a seed library. The observation and reconceptualization of food production in urban environments seems a natural outcropping of a foodie town greatly influenced by local food activist (and Chez Panisse co-owner) Alice Waters. The Thesis 2 MA Collaborative class from the San Francisco Art Institute hosts "A Fresh Look: Observations on Artistic and Social Practice in Urban Farming" to present its new book and Web site on the topic. Tonight’s celebration kicks off with an underground market offered by forageSF, run by local potentates of found food (and we don’t mean dumpster diving for old doughnuts — rather, finding wildly growing edibles occurring naturally). A wealth of delicious options including raw honey and kombucha are available for purchase at the market. Following that is a conversation about urban farming featuring artists and activists from the movement and, finally, a reception in the campus cafe.

  • 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.'"
