Brown Amy & Carnita R Getting Crafty @ Indie Mart This Sunday
We’ve been huge fans of/shoppers at Indie Mart for years and have always dreamed of bringing out 45s on to the stage — and now our dreams are coming true! Indie Mart is a wonderful way to get drunk outdoors during the daytime (which we’re clearly huge fans of) while also supporting local small businesses (like our friends at Blackjet Baking Co) & bands & artists & …stuff? There’s also a rumor that mayoral candidate John Avalos will be joining us on stage to play a few records later in the evening… OH! And we get to judge a DIY Contest with Indie Mart founder Kelly Malone and our pal Broke-Ass Stuart. We <3 passing judgement!
ndie mart is back, after an 8 month hibernation. SF’s only truly local indie design, DIY and music party hits Sunday July 24th from 12-7pm (extended hours) at Thee Parkside and all down Wisconsin Street. Roll out with your peeps and hit first outdoor show of the year! All the things you love: awesome vendors, all day bands, cheap beers, stiff drinks, photobooth to get wild in, Parkside’s tasty BBQ and tots, all the eye candy, fun and rad shopping you can imagine. Vendors include DIYers, makers, designers, screenprinters, illustrators, artists, typographers, vintage, a few carpenters, foodies and some of our favorites like Shotwell, Gangs of SF, Pretty Penny, San Franpsycho, Indosole, Workshop, Black Jet Bakery & about 80 more. Add in: food vendors (for the first time), our second annual DIY competition with judges Broke Ass Stuart, Kelly Malone & The Hard French DJ’s (thanks to Wikia DIY). A 6pm soul/oldies dance competition for awesome prizes. Workshop SF. Make your own terrarium fundraiser by Flora Grubb. Sex kitten makeovers by Fox & Doll: Red lips, smokey eyes & F’ed up- special effects black eyes & bruises, so youre not left out dudes. Lastly, of course the Photo Booth! We’ll have all kinds of interactive designers & good stuff going on.
