RAW SF, known for throwing the Bay Area's largest fashion + music + art monthly every 4th Thursday at 1015 Folsom is back with a juxtapositionional twist on THURSDAY MAY 24th!

With over 700 attendees each month and 30+ of the Bay's emerging & legendary underground artists all coming together to cause a boundary pushing event of unparalleled proportions... RAW SF is not to be missed!

"Raw SF's made quite the name for itself as a monthly that showcases the latest in independent and underground artistic talent. Whether it's showcasing the hottest looks, bassiest beats or sickest art, this collective is definitely driven by natural ability." -nitevibe.com

(v.) BLEND: "To mix, mingle and harmonize different components or varieties together thoroughly to produce a particular flavor, consistency or look."


'The Blend' will twist you through a manifestation of juxtapositional elements to entice your dueling natures & evoke your inner opposite.

"With a forte in sampling dreamy doo-wop and classic jazz records and his hooks that have that "Take em to Church" feeling to them, I honestly feel that B.Lewis is one of the most unique beatsmiths I've heard in a while." - Hip Hop Hypedog

The Spit Brothers (est. 2005) are a live band and production team based in San Francisco, focused primarily on a dubstep, dub, afrobeat, and funk influenced sound.

Co-Founders and producers Bakir and Dubsworth direct the Spit Brother's sound and also co-run Dubs Alive Records. http://soundcloud.com/dubsalive

Their live sets showcase their deep heavy beats with intense live instrumental performances. Band members often perform on trumpet, bass, guitar, drums, percussion, organ, synthesizer, and melodica.

For The Blend, the group will be performing a special new live dub fader set featuring band members Dubsworth and Danger Deluxxe. This set will feature a combination of collaborative and solo works from both producers. Listen up for a blend of heavy sub-waves, rich melodic elements, and layers of dub chamber effects.
