Music from Big Pink 

Wednesday, Aug 6 2008
You can choose to see the wine industry as a soulless, disease-inducing, water-table–decimating scourge, or you can look on the bright side, and agree that it also brings us many delicious treats. And it can be an intelligent endeavor, what with organic and labor-conscious wineries popping up every so often. At Pretty in Pink, wine Web site Bottlenotes brings together a group of the much-maligned pink stuff. To be clear, we take the horrifying resurgence of White Zinfandel very seriously: It must be stopped. It wasn't funny in the '80s, and it isn't funny now. But those who dismiss all rosy wines are unjust. Many pinks are dry, light, and able to kick the butt of that oaky white Zin crap. The bottles at this event are from the Rosé family, and we're betting they're zestful, crisp, complex and satisfying. An all-Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa, two Vins Gris from New Zealand, and an Australian called Pretty Sally are just a few of the selections; all are paired with special snacks.

  • 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.'"
