Kelly Malone, the undisputed DIY queen of San Francisco and head maven of Workshop and Indie Mart, is one of the most headstrong ladies in town and a friend to many. She was recently re-diagnosed with an advanced stage of cancer (she was first hit with it a few years back) and sent out a call to the community to help her kick it in the butt once and for all–with rock n' roll, of course!
Royal Baths (hands down one of our favorite SF bands), Social Studies, Art Museums, Sandwitches, and Carletta Sue Kay are coming together at the Independent next Tuesday, June 7th in a fundraiser to help Malone pay for hospital bills. When she started Workshop two years ago, she sacrificed her salary and medical benefits to keep the awesome DIY classes affordable to everyone. Now, she's asking us to return the favor.
Fifteen dollars gets you a ticket to see all these solid groups rip it up, plus food from Bar Crudo, Q Restaurant and pizza from Little Star. It'll be a grand old time celebrating one woman and her tireless, noble quest to get us all away from our computers and using our hands again. If this is a cause close to your heart, you can donate to Kelly's treatment here.
Kelly Malone vs. The "C" Word, $15, 8 pm. Independent, 628 Divisadero St., 415-771-1421
