Starting tomorrow, an activist t-shirt brand will do its best to, er, drum up some attention in Dolores Park by asking passersby to sign an oil barrel with messages that will be delivered to BP at the end of the month.
Dubbed the Bang the Drum tour, the campaign from United We Fit, whose signature t-shirts for men and women include the letters “UN” and blank space for the wearer to fill in with words of his or her choice, aims to raise continued awareness about the oil spill and send a message from consumers to BP.

There’s a new, temporary space in the Mission giving the creative and fashion-minded a place to make their mark. Now open on Valencia St., the first Levi’s Workshop is one-part old-fashioned print shop, one-part community hub and one-part retail shop showcasing a limited selection of the brand’s Work Wear and Boyfriend collections.
Set in an expansive, white-walled space outfitted with various printing presses, activity tables, a lounge area and a small pop-up display of Levi’s apparel, the workshop is the first in a series of outposts organized around certain crafts. The next will open this fall in New York and focus on photography.
