SF Events about town

A friend recently pointed out that we have a habit of posting pictures of events after the fact instead of letting our readers in on the fun. Since there are an abundance of fun events this weekend we thought we’d list a few:
  • Home: New work by Julia Rothman and Caitlin Keegan at Rare Devices. The opening is tonight from 7-10pm. Guests who participate in this jumpsuit themed event get 20% off all merchandise.
  • The 13th annual Silent Film Festival runs Friday July 11th –Sunday July 13th. We stumbled upon this event last year and were blown away by the live musical accompanists.
Musical highlights this year include Bay Area ensemble the Baguette Quartette, who specialize in Parisian dance hall music of the 1920s and will be making their festival debut with comedy provocateur RenĂ© Clair’s LES DEUX TIMIDES (Two Timid Souls, 1928).

  • Renegade Craft Fair at the Fort Mason Center this weekend July 12th and 13th from 11am-7pm. Contributors include: Art School Dropout, Betsy Ply, 3 Fish Studios, Caralyndon and many more renegade crafters from across this industrious country of ours.
  • Local handmade guru Minnie Wilde hosts a summertime sale with other local designers turk + Taylor, Tinc, and Alma at El Rio (3158 Mission Street) this Saturday July 12th from 4-7pm. 21+ no cover.
  • Bambuddha Lounge hosts Stellar: SF Fashion Awards Show. Over the past few months, local fashionistas have nominated their favorite designers, style bloggers and models – winners to be announced Sunday July 13th from 3-11pm. DJ commodore 69 will be mixing electro-rock favorites.
