Freaky Street

There’s been a lot of talk lately about the cool kids moving to Oakland. But who needs to be cool when you can be weird? And on Sunday, San Francisco will cook up a strange brew like no other city can with the How Weird Street Faire. Known for colorful costumes, stilt walkers, and hula hoops, How Weird will kick off the city’s street festival season with 10 stages of electronic music, art installations, and marching bands. The theme this year is “Weirdly Gras: a carnival of peace!” In the New Orleans tradition, the marching bands and performance groups will be organized into “krewes,” and there will be, of course, lots of magic beads. The music krewes will include Burning Man party-starters like Pink Mammoth and the trendier sounds you’d hear at Temple. There will also be vendors with unique artwork and a local take on Cajun and Creole food. It’s a psychedelic jambalaya with a little something for everyone — no matter where you lay your weirdly head.
