San Francisco Street Art

A youtuber named Ryan Erickson, whose handle is AlwaysThrowROCK, has posted an interesting video of San Francisco graffiti and street art. The video is “dedicated to those who make San Francisco a city of unbridled love compassion and beauty.” As a local I would have liked to have known the locations of the images; still, it’s an interesting and extensive collection, lovingly assembled.

Celebrating Sisters

Laughing Squid has posted a notice of the 28th Anniversary celebration of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence. The free event, called Night of the Living Easter, will be held in Dolores Park from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm on Sunday, April 8.

“The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence celebrate our 28th year of raising money, eyebrows (and a smidge of Hell), all for you, our community,” the announcement says. “As always, the event is free to all, and donations are gladly accepted. Don’t miss out on your opportunity to pick up some really cool Sisters’ schwag including t-shirts, buttons and indulgences! Remember: Salvation comes to those who bring trash bags and clean up after themselves. Night Of The Living Easter is a Perpetual Indulgence production.”

Two of the sisters kindly gave me permission to take the photo above during an antiwar rally in January 2003.
