Day 8: Sparks "Ignite What's Next" art tour hits San Francisco



Day 8 of the Sparks "Ignite What's Next" art tour was held in San Francisco, CA. For the day event, Dave Choe, Saber, and Retna did a live painting installation at Upper Playground on Fillmore. One woman was there to get Saber to sign a shirt she bought her nephew and decided to really go for it and have Dave Choe sign the shirt she was wearing too. The evening event was held at 111 Minna in conjunction with the Juxtapoz "Get Exposed" party. The place was packed with a line around the building. A definite highlight was when Dave Choe broke out with a rad drum solo between DJ sets. September 19th the tour will be in Portland, OR at Upper Playground at 3pm for a daytime event and then at the Rotture bar at 9pm.
