  • Could these "gently worn" jeans soon be yours?
Calm down, everyone. It's a double entendre.

Jennifer Siebel Newsom, erstwhile movie star and wife of our gubernatorial candidate and erstwhile mayor, will be "walking the jean carpet" noon today at 525 Castro as a celebrity guest of a "jeans exchange" benefiting Goodwill. It's conceivable our first lady will bring a few pairs to further the cause -- hence our headline.

If it is not clearly denoted upon your calendar, today is "Levi's 501 Day" -- clever! 5/01! -- a company-sponsored denim drive that will last until the 10th. You needn't bring only Levi's -- jeans of all sorts narrowly beat out Kingston Trio records as Goodwill's top-selling item. (A good buddy from college used to pitch his favorites, Wranglers, with the line "Wranglers -- when you just don't give a damn." His old Friendster profile picture even showed him being arrested while wearing a pair).

Folks toting "gently worn" jeans to Levi's 525 Castro or Union Square stores will receive a discount coupon. Finally, in yet another beneficent act of charity to a group of wretched wastrels, Levi's notes that all media covering its big event today get a free lunch.

  • 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.'"
