Balmy Alley, San Francisco

One of the evening receptions for the conference Mitch attended in San Francisco was held in Balmy Alley, in the Mission District...It was a block party, put on by a law firm located on the alley and included performers and musicians.

From http://www.balmyalley.com:

"The block long alley is the best place to see the most concentrated collection of murals in San Francisco. The murals began in the mid-80's as artists' outrage over human rights and political abuses in Central America. Today the alley contains murals on a myriad of styles and subjects from human rights to local gentrification and Hurricane Katrina."



Here's a couple short videos I shot of two of the performances:





And the murals:
