On The Scene at San Francisco’s How Weird Street Faire
San Francisco has a strong tradition of street fairs and festivals, and since its inception in 2000 the How Weird Street Faire is informally known to be kickoff to every year’s festival season in the city. As every other year, 2013 brought peace, joy, and a whole lot of weird to Howard Street and SoMa. There were 10 stages of electronic music, lots of Burning Man faithfuls, and this year’s pervading “Weirdly Gras” theme. The most exciting part about the day for us being the shared stage with Symbiosis and the dirtybird crew. Claude VonStroke and Justin Martin’s label got its start throwing free form parties and BBQs in Golden Gate Park — much in the same vein as Sunday’s How Weird Street Faire. Dancing Astronaut was on the scene this year, click through to see how weird it got.
