So Crafty 

Wednesday, Jul 2 2008
Thanks to the resurgence of small-batch DIY knitting and stitching among artists, we no longer have to bow down to the man when buying crafts. The Renegade Craft Fair, which started in Chicago’s Wicker Park back when people still paid attention to Wicker Park (2003), now happens four times a year around the country, including at the McCarren Park Pool in Brooklyn, a hipster flash point the New York Times cannot stop covering. This year it comes to S.F. for the first time, with more than 150 vendors peddling their homemade wares (everything from plush toys to posters, T-shirts, jewelry, and stationery), along with DJs throughout the weekend and Chicago's circus-punk marching band Mucca Pazza playing today.

The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
