Get Off Your Ass and Make Something Cool — Workshop Open TODAY!

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

So things have been quiet with Indie Mart lately. I haven’t had a place to shake my ass and spend all the little hard earned cash I have in quite sometime. But Kelly is dusting off her latest project and polishing it off with an awesome opening party to get you into it.

Workshop, once a great idea, has manifested itself into an amazing playground for people that want to work with their hands. Want to learn how to sew? Done. Want to screenprint t-shirts for your awesome band? Done. Need some creatives to get you out of that rut? Done.

More importantly, it’s a community space designed to the D.I.Y set. Its time to get out of the basement, take your badass crafts to the street and get wasted and meet amazing new people in the process. If the space is anything like I saw during the Divisadero art walk, this place will be well stocked and ready for anyone from the novice knitter to the advanced architect.

The opening party will feature beer cozie silkscreening, button making and a make-your-own-drink bar. And who knows — you may be able to bring someone home with that bad ass new beer sweater you made.

Workshop Opening Party
Saturday September 19th, 7-11pm
1798 McAllister Street at Baker [Western Addition]
Get drunk, create and socialize with Kelly for FREE!

Monica Miller - The Intern

Monica Miller - The Intern

Ms. Miller was born in San Diego, CA to one lesbian mother and one
righteous, cheap father. Currently, she is enrolled at San Francisco
State University for a B.A. in Journalism and the approximate
completion date is around 2015. She has worked for many papers in the
Bay Area, including the Oakland Tribune and the San Mateo Country
Times and is currently the city editor at one of the most
underappreciated publications in SF, the Golden Gate [X]press. Though
she may find bargains aplenty, it only stems from the necessity of
never landing an actual job and working for hacks [like Stuart.] With
intelligence, style, poise, bite, and honesty, she will rip your heart
out; but not before writing some awesome, poignant shit. This year,
she is looking forward to bigger and better things such as: trying to
get paid for a gig, actually finding a date that isn't a loser or
fucking crazy, not calling her parents when hungover and bringing you
the best of the 7x7 everyday of the week. [By the way, I wasn't
kidding about the date thing; if you love food, booze and shoegaze,
get at me.]
