Wes Leslie, the Bedroom Player

Our pal Wes Leslie is bringing his “bedroom soul” act to the Mission this Wednesday evening! Here’s the invite:

Stripped Down Soul: Justin Farren, James Taugher, and Wes Leslie – Private Parlor Show at The Lost Church.

Doors at 7:30pm
Show at 8:15pm
Tickets at http://ticketf.ly/2lQiyEY
$10 in advance and $15 day of show online and at the door.

Private Parlor Shows are open to all friends and fans of The Lost Church and the performers.

Seating is first come, first served. We recommend you buy in advance to ensure being a part of the event (parlor shows often sell out), but you can also try purchasing at the door on the night of the show.

Online sales are active until 9:30pm the night of show (unless sold out). You can purchase tickets right at the door using a card via your phone and the above Ticketfly.com link. That old-fashioned cash is also accepted, of course.

Wes is on first so don’t be tardy. RSVP and invite your friends!

Mission Bicycle’s Bright Idea.

Full disclosure: As the project manager, I may be biased. Feel free to take this post with a grain of salt.

So here’s what’s up. Tomorrow, Mission Bicycle unveils (thanks to Betabrand for the veil) what we’ve been working on for the last 2 years.

  • Integrated lights
  • GPS tracking

Starting in 2018, all Mission Bicycles will come with theft-proof lighting. Front and rear.

Two lights, one battery, one button. Close to a month’s worth of commutes with one charge of a removable rechargeable battery.

Mission Bicycle is adding a GPS tracking device to help reunite bike owners with their bikes in the event of theft. “The bike industry regularly takes note at what’s happening in the Mission. The suits literally come into our store for ‘inspiration.’ ” gloated Jefferson McCarley, General Manager of Mission Bicycle Co. “I actually hope they rip us off.” McCarley said. “More bikes on the street with GPS tracking will help us move the needle in reducing bike theft. Might take them a couple of years, but I really do hope that more bike companies can figure this out.”

 

An Android and ios app shows Mission owners where the bike is at all times.

Tuesday night at 6:00, Mission Bicycle staff will be on hand to answer questions and demo two prototype bikes in their R&D workshop which is located on the 2nd floor over the 766 Valencia storefront.

If Mission Bicycle Company’s Kickstarter campaign is funded then the LYRA will be available later this year to Kickstarter backers and to the general public in 2018. 

The company is planning to host a Bait Bike project in June as a part of their research and development. We’ll be posting videos of those adventures here.

PSA Press, forever turning iconic SF signage into wearable art, has another one for ya:

Golden Boy is one of San Francisco’s most iconic pizzerias. Since 1978 they have been essential to North Beach. We have recreated their famous neon hand sign for this special release.

Get it online here or at Golden Boy (home of the best square slices in town).
