Rock Make Art & Music Festival, Mission District, San Francisco Aug 23rd


The Rock Make Festival Sounds awesome and it’s right in my neighborhood, with 70 vendors there are sure to be some awesome T-shirts. I know friends of Tcritic like Artefacture, Fiftyseven-Thirtythree, The Girl and Rhino, San Franpsycho.

If you’re a T-shirt vendor you can sign up here.

The Bay Bridged is proud to co-present the second annual Rock Make Street Festival, returning to San Francisco’s Mission District for a free all day local music and crafts street fair on Sunday, August 23rd. Last summer, thousands of San Franciscans sampled some of the best Bay Area arts, crafts and music at the first Rock Make event. This year, Rock Make returns to once again celebrate the Bay Area arts community’s innovative blend of DIY spirit and artistic creativity, with a festival that retains all of the best qualities of last year’s event while going even bigger and better.

Like last year, the street festival will be held on Treat Avenue between 17th St and 18th St and will feature performances by over a dozen great Bay Area bands on two stages. Alongside the music, local independent handicrafts, visual arts, and fashion vendors will be selling their wares, allowing patrons the opportunity to see a rare meeting of the flourishing local crafts and music communities.

Be sure to also check out our Rock Make Pre-Party on Saturday, August 22nd at the Rite Spot Cafe, featuring performances by Dame Satan, Tiny Television and Marcus Stoesz (of Paper Airplanes). The FREE show starts at 8pm.

Fix Healthcare or Die… Seriously – T-Shirt from Print Liberation

Yeah, it’s really simple America, you can’t keep running a healthcare system based on growth capitalism, you can’t continue to allow corporations to profit from peoples suffering, you can’t keep letting insurance companies fuck people over to keep the balance sheet looking good. Almost everyone who’s actually driving the agenda wants to keep people sick for longer to make more money, don’t stand for it, don’t be hoodwinked by profiteers using fear tactics to keep you trapped and under control. I’ve had 22 years experience with the British NHS system and 19 years experience with the American system and i’ve got to say, you don’t know how bad the US system is, and how much control it keeps in the hands of corporations. IMHO the US system is more like Long Term Sick Care, there is nothing healthy about it, no incentive to educate, no incentive to prevent disease, just keep sick people living longer.

Oh and BTW if you really want to rebel against the current powers that be, eat organic local food, don’t eat any of the processed frankenfood, avoid soda and fast food at all costs, exercise, meditate, and laugh. Remember moderation in all things, especially moderation :)
