Yip-Hip-Hooray! Block party right on. We are super dooper stoked to let you all in on the incredible Rock Make Street Festival happening in front of the shop this upcoming Sunday, beginning around noon. It's all being organized by our incredible, indefatigable shopstress neighbor Helen of Whiz Bang Fabrics, along with Tartufi and the good people at The Bay Bridged and it's all totally free. There's so much to tell you! Take it away, Helen:
The countdown to the Rock Make Street Festival has begun! If the idea of a San Francisco street fair conjures up tired images of funnel cakes, hemp necklaces, and guys playing didgeridoos, prepare to be blown away by the FIFTY amazing independent local designers, artists and craftspeople and TWELVE great indie rock bands at this year's Rock Make event. It's a great chance to get some great bargains on high-end pieces from nationally reknowned artisans while enjoying some great music. It's a free, all ages, totally DIY event and an excellent way to spend a warm Sunday afternoon!
Starting at noon, twelve of the Bay Area's best indie bands will grace Rock Make's two stages, showcasing a great mix of indie rock, folk, and experimental pop music. Set times will be posted to the festival's MySpace page soon, but the full confirmed list of bands is: Tartufi, Trainwreck Riders, Silian Rail, Emily Jane White, Low Red Land, Maus Haus, Rademacher (Fresno), French Miami, Settler (San Jose), Man/Miracle, The Harbours, and Dame Satan.
