Solar panels on the White House ― it’s a very “now” topic. The Obama administration has taken several different positions, and it seems to be in favor at the moment. But Jimmy Carter already did it, way back in 1979. (Ronald Reagan took them down.) So here is a man who won the Nobel Peace Prize, and who has been publicly working for equality, education, and sustainability ever since he refused to join Georgia's White Citizens' Council in 1970. Carter is also the author of 25-plus books, including not only the outspoken Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid but also The Little Baby Snoogle-Fleejer; we want both, immediately. Today, he signs copies of yet another book, White House Diary, an annotated version of his journals from his presidency that we hope covers the solar panel situation.

  • 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.'"
