Congratulations, San Francisco. We made it through the consumer blitzkrieg of Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday. For those of you with a few stragglers left on your holiday gift list, or simply in need of a good shopping fix, this weekend offers two signature city events in a far quieter corner of the holiday consumption market. At the SFMade Holiday Gift Fair, 75 local vendors tout one-of-a-kind crafts — from hand-printed linens to specialty housewares, skin care products, and vintage jewelry. Snag culinary delights for your favorite foodie directly from the artisans who make San Francisco one of the best food cities in the world. Then meander to the 42nd Annual KPFA Crafts Fair, the largest weekend holiday crafts fair in Northern California and a benefit for the beloved listener-supported radio station. This annual, family-friendly event draws collectors, craft enthusiasts, and holiday crowds by the thousands. 200 artists represent at this year’s bazaar — presenting handcrafted gifts, jewelry, apparel, stationary, ceramics, and eco-friendly décor. The event also boasts live musical performances by guitarists David Gans, Teja Gerken, and Lee Dynes, among others. Complimentary shuttles are provided from Civic Center Station. Give a slice of the city this holiday season and support the local entrepreneurs who make San Francisco a unique, creative, and vibrant place to live.
Dec. 8-9, 10 a.m., 2012

  • 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.'"
