JumpstART: A Free Day of Dance, Theater, and Performance at ODC Theater

How's this for a cool gig? ODC is throwing a housewarming party to celebrate its brand-spanking-new community performance space in the Mission. But unlike most housewarmings, you'll be the one getting the gift. 

Haven't yet had the chance to witness Joe Goode's masterful choreography? Always been dying to see a skit by Killing My Lobster? Secretly want to get in on the madness of a Youth Speaks poetry slam? Curious about playwright/director Mark Jackson's work and Lily Kharrazi's world music? This Saturday is your chance to tap into the arts for free.

Bay Area Youth Bring in the Noise for MLK

Youth Speaks, a nonprofit committed to creating a forum for Spoken Word performance, will present  their 12th Annual Bringing the Noise for Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. on Monday, January 19. This year’s  theme is “A Certain Kind of Fire” – a concept taken from Dr. King's last speech, "I've Been to the Mountaintop," in which King states: “There was a certain kind of fire that no water could put out.”

It's 1995 All Over Again on Valencia Street

There was no valet parking on Mission or Valencia streets 15 years ago. No one was no waiting 10 minutes in line for Tartine or Ritual coffee. The only slightly gentrified business on the Valencia strip was Val 21 – (now Dosa) right next to the lesbian bookstore. 23rd Street was inhabited by Radio Valencia (serving up pre-mp3 mixed music), instead of people drinking absinthe at Beretta.
