Under the LOFT: Gluten-Free Paella and Cider Pop-Up
In the rare food event that’s designed to appeal to boozehounds and diners with dietary restrictions, the pop-up dinner maestros known as S+S Gastro Grub are throwing a gluten-free paella party on Thursday, and each of the three courses will be paired with a hard cider from Crooked City Cider — including a satsuma cider flavor that the Oakland-based company will be debuting that night. The three courses will include an octopus terrine amuse, a Thai red curry seafood paella, and a satsuma flan. Tickets, which are available via BrownPaperTickets.com, will cover the cost of the cider, but guests are also welcome to BYOB. (Ages 21 and up only!) The exact location of the dinner will be emailed to you 24 hours before the event. $60

Mac McClelland

Thu., Feb. 26, 7:30 p.m. and Sat., Feb. 28, 7 p.m.
Mac McClelland
“No one says that unresolved trauma can kill you. If anyone did, maybe people would take it more seriously. Serious as cancer.” Thus writes Mac McClelland in her raw, unflinching new book Irritable Hearts: A PTSD Love Story. Part memoir, part investigative journalism, part searing look at a complex and frequently misunderstood illness, Irritable Hearts chronicles McClelland’s battles with post-traumatic stress disorder — which she first experienced while reporting on the atrocities of post-earthquake Haiti in 2010 for Mother Jones magazine — and whose lingering effects include a delightful grab bag of night terrors, dissociation, numbness, self-harm, suicidal thoughts, hysterical sobbing fits, alcoholism, and more. But far from a beautifully crafted catalog of emotional and cultural cruelties, Irritable Hearts is indeed a love story, seared with an undeniable hopefulness, as well as McClelland’s cheerfully acidic wit and singular talent for storytelling. McClelland will read from her book and sign copies on Thursday at The Booksmith (1644 Haight St., San Francisco) and Saturday at Book Passage in Corte Madera (51 Tamal Vista Blvd.). Free

Six Organs Of Admittance

Thu., Feb. 26, 7:30 p.m.
415-621-4455
Six Organs Of Admittance
A long-running outlet of Ben Chasny, a songwriter now based in Western Massachusetts who retains strong ties to the Bay Area, Six Organs of Admittance recently released Hexadic. A gnarled work of snake pit electric guitar riffs and idiosyncratic arrangements, Hexadic is a somewhat startling departure from Chasny’s voluminous catalog of folk-forward acoustic material, which, while rigorously skewing guitar conventions, rarely sounded as mangled as this most recent statement. Still, Hexadic features few heavy music clichés: The title refers to a card system devised by Chasny to guide his composition, a technique that’s reminiscent of Brian Eno’s “Oblique Strategies” and the chance operations popularized by John Cage. As part of Noise Pop, Six Organs of Admittance headlines Bottom of the Hill (1233 17th St., San Francisco) on Thursday, with Magik Markers’ Elisa Ambrogio and Skygreen Leopards’ Donovan Quinn as openers. $12
