I’m stoked to head down to Big Sur for possibly the most chill music fest out there, Woodsist Festival. Last year was magical, and this year they’ve extended it to two days of music under the redwoods during the week (July 26/27), so only people that really want to be there will be in attendance. Like last year, I’ve put together a mixtape featuring a couple songs from each artist. There are still some tickets available, so join me and don’t forget to book that camping spot.
If you weren’t able to catch Dave’s talk at last month’s Creative Mornings/San Diego, that video is now up. It’s worth a watch if you need that little extra push or would just like to hear more about the continuing story of Holiday Matinee. Big shout out to everyone who showed up and continues to support us. It means the world.
I’m super excited to share Chinatown Pretty, a photo and interview project that documents the street-style of seniors living in San Francisco’s Chinatown. For the past year, Andria Lo and my pal Valerie Luu have been schmoozing with Chinatown residents as they went about their daily routines. What they discovered was the unique fashion that is equal parts unexpected, rad and as they like to say, “not just pretty, but Chinatown Pretty.”
I’ve always known Valerie to be involved in interesting projects, but these photos and the work that went into it, going as far as enlisting Cantonese translators, is something special. If you’re in SF, it’s all coming together in an exhibition and opening reception this Friday that pairs the photos with interviews to help tell a story. Stop by for the opening or check out the exhibit before the end of February.
