Last night, we partied like it was 1983! The Independent hosted a screening of the Talking Head’s legendary concert film: Stop Making Sense. Across the street at our 505 Divisadero store, we hosted our own party prior to the screening. What better way to get ready to stop making sense than with the Bay Area’s best Talking Heads cover band, North American Scum. Free beers, good music, and good people. What else could you want?
This is a peak at “Good Living”, our spring release, inspired by vibrant colors, retro themes, and neon lights. It turns out our local neighborhood, Ocean Beach, provides plenty of complementary locations to shoot our new gear. Thanks to Ocean Park Motel, Jm Liquor & Seabee Mini Mart.
Another season, another launch party! Our newest line, “Good Living” is inspired by vibrant colors, neon light, retro themes, and festival fun out in the sun. Join us next Thursday, February 26th, at our Divis shop from 5-8pm as we celebrate the release of our spring collection! Drinks on the house and beats courtesy of local electronic duo BLAUS. Come hang with the San Franpsycho family and get your thirsty Thursday shenanigans started early.
Let’s face it, either you pre-game or you’re doing it wrong. Join us and Do415 for a Noise Pop pre-party at Benders (806 South Van Ness Avenue, San Francisco, CA 94110). Happy Hour drinks will be served from 5-8PM, that’s just enough time to get a good buzz going before heading to Noise Pop! Don’t miss THE LOVE DIMENSION, JET TRASH and EAGLE WOLF SNAKE as they prepare your musical palate for nights of great music. We are psyched to host the kick off party for the opening night of the Noise Pop Festival!
Stop by San Franpsycho’s flagship store on Divisadero before heading to the FREE 30th Anniversary screening of Jonathan Demme’s documentary on The Talking Heads, Stop Making Sense, at the Independent. Grab a beer and enjoy the Bay area’s premier Talking Heads cover band, North American Scum.
One of the finest rock documentaires ever made, and boasting a 97% freshness rating on Rotten Tomatoes, STOP MAKING SENSE captures the Talking Heads at the height of their careers. Shot over three nights in December of 1983, the Talking Heads’ nine-member (!) powerhouse tears through their catalog of brainy, body-moving jams. Whether you want to re-live the era or find out what you missed, this documentary is a must see.
Talk about LAST SECOND gifts! San Franpsycho will be hosting a Valentine’s day sale (feb 14) on the big day! The main event will be at our Noriega store, where we will not only be featuring our products but also other vendors including Establish, Mafia Bags, IndoSole and more. Our other stores will also be showing you love as they host sales up to 60% off San Franpsycho merchandise.
SAN FRANPSYCHO’S LAND MARK.
No doubt those of you who live in San Francisco have seen our iconic van. Back in 2009 we had dreams of an ice-cream style van that we could sell out of. After pinching our pennies, we found a diamond in the rough while driving down Fulton. After speaking to an older Chinese man via his son’s translation, this former garment delivery van became ours! For a long time it was our only store, before mobile selling was trendy! We continue using the van as a means of delivery, artistic expression, and Teen-Wolf van surfing. Keep an eye out and tag us in your photos of our San Franpsycho icon.
If you’ve ever been to the Cliff House, you’ll know that it gives you one of the most beautiful views in California. The building is the farthest west that you can go in San Francisco and a classic choice to many when it comes to planning a romantic dinner. But besides views and food, CH has a unique historical past that ties us to the San Francisco community from over a century ago. Self made millionaire Adolph Sutro, who is also credited for the creation of the Sutro Baths, established the Cliff House as a family friendly restaurant in 1881. Over a hundred years later, though having been destroyed by fires and earthquakes, the tradition of the Cliff House still stands. Tucked away past the Great Highway, this is a favorite San Francisco spot for locals and tourists alike. Check below to view the full history of the Cliff House.
