I hope we start seeing more complex stencil art like this.

Mission Loc@l recently started an interesting segment about bike shops in the Mission in response to the recent opening of Mission Bicycle. The teaser to their Pedal Revolution piece hints that there might be some drama between Valencia Cyclery and Mission Bikes. Unfortunately, the fine folks at Pedal Rev were not asked any direct questions about their new competition, so we’ll have to wait for the Valencia Cyclery piece to find out all the juicy details.
Unless you live under a rock, you probably noticed there was a parade of things that would anger the Catholic church today in the Mission. Unfortunately for the 20-something cool-kid crowd, it started at 9:30 this morning. In the event you didn’t rail some lines off your iPhone while listening to Cut Copy to motivate yourself to get out there, I took some pictures for you.
At a sidestreet entrance at 21st:
Bouncer Man: No. Get that out of here. No bikes.
1: Oh, it only has one-gear, it’s fine.
B.M. – Seriously, you cannot bring it in here.
1: Okay, where can I bring it in?
B.M. – Not here.
1: I know I cannot bring it in here, but what entrance can I bring it in?
B.M. – Not here.
Stranger: You can sneak it in at 16th.
B.M. – No! That’s not true! You can’t bring that in here!
So what other ridiculous stuff were people not allowed in with? Reader Ms Heidi reports that ice cream was a no-no. We have also received a tip that a resident of 19th and Alabama (a block east of the festival) had to show her ID to walk her dog.
Unfortunately they cut my awesome interview with an aggro chihuahua. Too bad, he had a lot of good things to say.
Reader Steven Weinberg alerts us to the opening of the latest Sarah Applebaum show, “Soft Core,” at the Receiver Gallery on Valencia. The show opens tonight from 6pm until 10 and the exhibit runs until June 26th.
Steven also went over to Sarah’s studio last week to check out what she was up to. Check out the pictures at Fecal Face (including an epic shot of a colorful gun).
