Fresh Out the Inbox: Hottub and Golden Gram

Each week our good friends over at The Owl Mag share all the goodies they get in their inbox (think free MP3s, new videos and the general low-down on Bay Area artists) in an effort to spread the local music gospel.  Now you're about to get it here with our new weekly feature, The Inbox. Here's what we've got this week:

The Plant Cafe: Outdoor Dining at Its Most Organic

I'm a person that never feels like they can get enough of summer. Knowing that the season is fleeting makes me greedily eat as many peaches as possible. The same goes with the Indian summer in SF; I have this urge to dine outside every minute I can—all the while, looking, in a slight panic, towards the horizon to see if I can see the fog threatening to spill over. I feel it's important not to waste a moment of blue sky. (Except when you're at your desk writing a blog.)

Berkeley Rep Meets Rock Theater With "American Idiot"

Green Day, you may or may not know, began in Berkeley when, at age 15, Billie Joe Armstrong and Mike Dirnt connected at The 924 Gilman Street Project, an all-ages, non-profit performance co-op that is also known as the Alternative Music Foundation.

Seven Academy of Art Students Headed to New York Fashion Week

San Francisco may no longer have a fashion week of its own, but the City by the Bay will at least be well-represented under the Bryant Park tent on Saturday, when seven recent graduates of the Academy of Art present Spring 2010 womenswear collections during Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion Week.

A few things you need to know about each:

Amanda Cleary: Inspired by packaging, this MFA Fashion Design student and native Californian incorporated box tab and cut out detailing into her collection.

A Chandelier on the Cheap

This charming chandelier (and a few more just like it) were above head at a wedding we went to recently in Sonoma. The picture may not do it justice, but these simple lighting solutions cast a warm hue on the party and added a much appreciated rustic element to the otherwise stately french ballroom in which the event was held. Best part, they looked like an easy DIY project that anyone could replicate in their own home. Start by finding three rings to act as the exoskeleton of the chandelier. The ones used here looked like they were made from an old barrel, but we're sure you could erect something similar out of items from a craft or hardware store.

Family Ties Revisited: ‘Still Walking’ Takes A Stroll Between Life And Death

Hirokazu Kore-eda may be the most incisive cinematic chronicler of the modern Japanese family since master moviemaker Yasujiro Ozu. His first feature, Maborosi (1995), centers on a widow coping with the suicide of her husband, while his acclaimed 2004 film, Nobody Knows, revolved around the hardscrabble plight of four children, abandoned by their mother and forced to scrape out an existence on their own.
