Public Works SF
Another multi-use space has popped up right on the inner ring of the Mission — at 161 Erie Street (off Mission street between Duboce and 14th Streets) — offering a “zone for mixing, mingling and collaboration.” Public Works SF is throwing a weekend-long opening reception party to introduce the endless possibilities of the space. After a quick skim of the long list of DJs scheduled, I spotted Debaser‘s Jamie Jams, Hot Tub and DNTEL (The Postal Service) as highlights, but an art show and many other DJs are also on the schedule:

Friday 9/24: Capricious Fall opening art reception, (6-10pm)
Go Public: opening club event with local DJs (10pm-3am, $5)

Saturday 9/25: DJ sets from Mount Kimbie, Mary Anne Hobbs & Dntel (10pm-3am, $10)

Sunday 9/26: Honey Sound System’s Leather Disco II (6pm-2am)

You can also visit Public Works SF’s Facebook page and website for a detailed schedule of the opening weekend events. Here’s a little on SF Public Works’ philosophy:

Public Works encourages the growth of art and creativity in the Mission and San Francisco as a whole and are intent on providing a forum and a physical space for both. As part of their commitment to the Neighborhood, Public Works will donate a portion of proceeds to various local non-profits in addition to assisting these organizations with promotions and events. Root Division, a not-for-profit which brings art classes to kids in schools unable to afford such programs, is one current beneficiary
