++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

DISTRIKT is a non-profit electronic music collective and experiment of a few Deep End organizers of years past. Ask any one of us why, and you might get a different answer: giving back to the electronic music and alternative arts community; a desire to throw furious & fierce parties in the desert and elsewhere throughout the year; an urge to provide venues for music, dancing, and other art forms; an arrested development inability to let go and an ambition to try something new.

Our eclectic group of people offer up their talents — be it music making, drink slinging, construction craftiness, technological wizardry, performance art, or benevolent mischief. We live and breathe our ethos year round, and look forward to giving back to the community that has inspired us and bonded us together. This is our culture, this is our art, this is our gift.

We grow our community through new blood, new ideas, and old friends. We provide a venue for music, dance, and alternative art on the playa and beyond at a level of sound and fury you won’t soon forget. We want to gift you with daytime drink, dance, and a great crew of peeps and do what we do best.

HOW WEIRD STREET FAIRE - 5.01.11

The 12th Annual How Weird Street Faire
Sunday May 1, 2011 - Noon to 8pm
Centered @ Howard and 2nd Streets, San Francisco, Earth
Donation / $10
http://www.HowWeird.org/

Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=206657612694303
...
Nine city blocks filled with art and performances, vendors from around the world, tasty food and drinks, and all the colorful weirdness that San Francisco is famous for. All ages are welcome and costumes are highly encouraged.

Journey to the "Mythical Realms" of Howard Street and celebrate peace, creativity, and the start of the summer season!

The music stages are produced by local collectives and music organizations, including Symbiosis, Muti Music, Rebel Bass Collective, Groove Garden, Hookahdome, Afrolicious, Non Stop Bhangra, Tantra, Temple Nightclub, Opel, Opulent Temple, Ultraviolet Carnival, Aum Festival, Red Marines, SF House, Pink Mammoth, SWAG, and more.   

Dancing knows no boundaries or political affiliation. Music, more than any other form of communication, is able to transcend differences between people. It is through music and art that peace is always possible.

The main entrance, at Howard and New Montgomery Streets, is where you’ll find complimentary bike parking. It is only two blocks from the Montgomery BART station on Market Street, and near many MUNI lines, the Transbay Terminal, and Caltrain Station.

There is a requested donation of $10 for the How Weird Street Faire. The full donation buys a Magic Sticker that is potentially worth many times that amount, with discounts at the faire bars and after parties, as well as specials at many of the vendors.

The fun doesn’t stop when the faire ends, it just moves indoors to three very nice locations right at the faire site: Temple Nightclub, 111 Minna Gallery, and Harlot. Get a ticket at any location for only $10 (or $2 off with the Magic Sticker) good for all three venues. There will be ins and outs at all three clubs throughout the evening. The after-parties are 21 and over with ID. Magic Stickers are only available at the gates during the faire.

PLEASE RSVP by emailing playatech@burningman.com and include the following

Market Street Blooms Reception / Art in Storefronts Launch Party

The Black Rock Arts Foundation proudly announces our collaboration
with the San Francisco Arts Commission in the installation of Karen
Cusolito's Market Street Blooms at the U.N. Plaza, from her sculptural

(AIS.) We hope you'll join us in celebrating these and other new works
on Market Street!

Join BRAF and SFAC for the Opening Reception / Kick off Party for the
ARTery! Enjoy a lively evening, full of live entertainment and new
artworks.

Friday, May 13, 2011

Art in Storefronts Artists include Alexis Arnold, Vanesa Gingold, Madeline Trait, Erik Otto, Indigenous Arts Coalition, Cat U-Thasoonthorn, Robert Harris, Paz de la Calzada, Vicky Knoop and Beatrice Thomas, Rafael Landea, Amber Hasselbring

About the project:

Previously exhibited at the Burning Man event in 2010, Cusolito's
'Blooms' (20 foot high metal flower sculptures) create a
'scale-reversal' environment, in which visitors are obliged to take
notice of the detail and beauty of a usually small wonder of nature.
The Blooms sprout up triumphantly amidst the bustle of this urban
landscape, making a stand for public art that belongs to all.

“The Black Rock Arts Foundation has flourished amidst the Bay Area’s
highly concentrated population of artists, activists, volunteers and
other doers and has the aspiration of contributing a lasting, positive
impact on the Bay Area’s cultural history,” said Executive Director
Tomas McCabe. “As part of this longer-term vision, we see the
Mid-Market area as an ideal location for public art."

In addition to debuting Cusolito's installations, Art in Storefronts,
now in its second year, returns to Central Market with six storefront
installations and five murals. The latest in The ARTery Project’s
efforts to revitalize a once-vibrant commercial corridor, the project
temporarily places original art installations by San Francisco artists
in vacant and under-used storefront windows and exterior walls.

All artists' designs must be approved by the Arts Commission and are expected to be appropriate for a broad public audience.
