Market: Mark It 

Wednesday, Apr 30 2008
You hear so much bad news most of the time, from the war to the fact that landlords are attempting to repeal rent control on June 3. Bleah. Ready for some good news? The Fillmore Farmers' Market just reopened! More farmers' markets = better. These days, each market tends to develop a microculture of its own, and our guess is this year's Fillmore FM won't be different. To help things along in this historically musical district, the market features live jazz every week. But that's just the icing. The cake is the fruits and vegetables, which in May are expected to be full-on spring-has-sprung insanity, with cucumber, eggplant, peas, and the thing we've all been waiting for: The stone fruits! What's better than peach, apricot, and cherry season? Our favorite individual farm at Fillmore, Happy Boy Farms, is likely to start bringing their famous tomatoes soon, too. In addition to all that, the market offers fresh bread, fresh honey, and fresh eggs.
Saturdays, 9 a.m. Starts: April 26. Continues through Nov. 22, 2008

  • 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.'"
