Transmutation and Transformation at Dinner 

Wednesday, Jul 9 2008
Overeducated and slightly batty winemaker Abe Schoener studied the classics and philosophy. His current take on them makes us think of Donna Tartt's novel The Secret History, in which some undergraduates bacchanal too hard after cultishly studying ancient Greek. But we're sure Schoener won't wake up with blood in his hair; not at Bacar, anyway. He will, however, feed you five courses of heretical decadence and sling you nine of his vintages to go with it. His Scholium Project involves his own sourcing of grapes and small-batch pressing and fermenting. He's the kind of winemaker who turns out maybe 200 bottles of any one varietal per year -- they don't come cheap and they don't last. The '07 Gemella, the '06 Prince and His Caves, an older Scheria, and other book-smart bottles are massed behind the city walls, waiting for you.

  • 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.'"
