Geez, where’s a power pellet when you need it?
I’ve got a Primo original hanging in my room and I couldn’t be happier about it. Get one for yourself this Saturday:
In case you’re around and want to see some paintings or a few of these weird tshirts I made, this is going on this Saturday night at 1114 Folsom, later that night we’ll be moving to Amnesia for our 2 MEN WILL MOVE YOU party
The shirts are pretty righteous too:

Urban Putt, the new-ish mini-golf place with awesomely built SF-based holes and highly-priced fancy cocktails and food, has a rad looking new art installation called Sleepwalkers, by Dan Rosenfeld.
Pretty cool! You can check it out at Urban Putt at 1096 South Van Ness at 22nd.
Sounds good to me.
But seriously, what will it teach us?
With all the tech gentrification shaping the city lately, the Mission has become something of a playground for folks with lots of money, an artist Gordon Winiemko seeks to thoughtfully explore that with a new installation at Adobe Books:
For his first solo exhibition in San Francisco, Winiemko is channeling the indignation felt by many long-time residents regarding the new wave of gentrification into a playful, confrontational, and above all thoughtful meditation on not only what’s going on in San Francisco and the Mission in particular, but also the societal values that are fueling gentrification and income inequality across the country.
And, for the centerpiece of the exhibition, Winiemko turns the Mission into his own personal basketball court, drawing on sports as a metaphor for the “beat the other guy/winner take all” mentality that is imbricated in the American mindset
Check out all the details here.
But since no one in SF has a front yard anyway, here are some delightful

Gardening, San Francisco-style!
Cara Rose DeFabio put together a map of art spaces, focusing on performance, that are no longer with us. She is inviting people to add others that might be missing.
The map was created as part of a dramaturgy for The Dance that Documents Itself, opening tonight at CounterPulse and running through the 14th.
