The Intersection of Music, Bikes and Art
It is difficult to explain how excited we are for this upcoming Friday. Bikes and Beats, whose first event was launched as the Wigg Party Party anniversary celebration, is back again and with more exciting activities to boot. Plus a portion of the proceeds will be donated to us, The Wigg Party, and Sunday Streets San Francisco. Friday’s Bikes and Beats event, held at Public Works (161 Erie) party will start at 10pm and will be an excellent place to wrap up the SF Bike Party. There is no better way to kick off a week of bike centric events such as Sunday Street Mission and Bike to Work Day like shacking your tail feathers at one of SF hottest new clubs.
Check out the Facebook event page and invite all your friends. Scroll down for more details on how to get advance tickets and the awesome activities happening at Public Works include two rooms of music, street food, raffle prizes, DIY bike crafts, bike art, bike fashion, bike poems, bike parking, and well…you and your bike. Did we mention there will be bikes?
