*This is a benefit show for Kelly Mallone, co-founder of DIY space Workshop SF and hostess of The Indie Mart. From Indie Mart: “This past April, Kelly was diagnosed with an advanced stage of cancer that had spread to non-localized areas as a result of previous battles. This latest diagnosis requires a treatment path that will far exceed her financial abilities and lack of insurance, and most likely require her to take a hiatus from her businesses.” There are VIP tickets for $50 that come with food from some of my favorite restaurants along the Divis corridor, Little Star and Bar Crudo.
**VICELAND Party curated by the Thermals. RSVP required, 21+.
