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!

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).

Now please enjoy all the other times we wrote about a PSA Press pin…

You know, the block between 21st and 22nd, behind the New Mission Theater, where the Mission Community Market used to take place a few years back? They’ve been turning it into this new concept, La Placita, and it’s finally ready! Here’s the plan:

>>>LA PLACITA GRAND OPENING BLOCK PARTY
>>>APRIL 30, 11-3pm
>>>BARTLETT ST, between 21st & 22nd
>>>LIVE MUSIC by La Gente, Tumbledown House, and Another Man Out the Window

Join us on April 30 from 11-3pm to celebrate La Placita and Mission Community Market with live music and performances, food, tons of activities, and YOUR Mission story.

How do YOU want to use your new outdoor community space? What do you bring to La Placita? What will you create? Enjoy the space by getting creative or kicking back for the afternoon—there’s plenty of space for that too. Make art. Make a movie. Make friends. Make it healthy. Make it grow. It’s your Mission: Let’s make this place come alive.

Yay! RSVP and invite your friends!

Biographical Info:

"I joked that living in the Mission would be the end of me. And there were nights where it felt like the case.

One night I went out with my friend Allan to the bar that no one goes to on 16th Street, where I lost half my drink and money on the dance floor. Later we skated down 16th to Evelyn Lee, where I fell off my board and landed on my head as the 22 bus sped past behind me. A sobering moment. At the bar, I sulked and nursed my wounds until Allan put on Amy Winehouse’s 'Valerie.' We danced, he dipped me, and I felt better."
