La Malamaña, Fossil Fool, and Shake Your Peace to play MAPP festival in San Francisco’s Mission District.
Dear friends and fans,Please come out to 23rd and Treat St. Saturday night for a magical street performance like no other in recent history in SF. Three human-powered music bicycles creating a powerful and crisp 800 watt sound system. Three great bands. The feature performance, La Malamaña, are an amazing crew of stilt-waking, fire dancing, slack line balancing, silk twirling, caligraphy writing, hypnotically grooving drumming latin rocking folkifiers. This eight piece band travels, eats, smokes, and dances together. I had a chance to play with La Malamana at 12 Galaxies and witnessed as their stiltwalkers Carlanga and Joel backflipped on stilts. Amazing!
The other two performers are perhaps a bit more familiar to people on this list… SHAKE YOUR PEACE!and yours truly, Fossil Fool, the Bike Rapper. We’ll each be doing shorter sets.
The location for Saturday’s performance is 23rd and Treat. It’s a stone’s throw from the Red Poppy Art House.
About that sound system: It’ll be about 50% bigger and crisper than our setup at the bicycle music festival due to the addition of a third human powered music bike. We did a sound check last night at Dolores Park, and it was excellent. We’re even starting to get good bass out of the system now.
The MAPP (Mission Arts & Performance Project) happens only four times a year, and it’s a beautiful evening of art and music in 10 different walkable venues in the Mission District. This one’s shaping up to be one of the best yet. Come early and walk to some of the other venues!
Saturday night! Come on down.
