WTF IS A WOO WOP?

THE WOO WOP IS AN SF-BASED PARTY FEATURING LIVE MUSIC, FOOD, ART, AND MERCH FROM LOCAL ARTISTS. AT FIRST, MY PLAN WAS JUST TO BRING ALL OF MY DIFFERENT FRIENDS TOGETHER IN ONE PLACE, TURN UP, CELEBRATE MY BIRTHDAY, AND SPREAD GOOD VIBES. AFTER I SAW HOW MANY PEOPLE SHOWED UP AND HOW MUCH FUN EVERYBODY HAD, I REALIZED HOW IMPORTANT OUR PRESENCE IS OUT HERE. WHILE SO MANY NATIVES ARE BEING PUSHED OUT, WE'RE STILL HERE KEEPING THE ENERGY AND THE CULTURE ALIVE.

WITH ALL THE NEGATIVITY IN THE NEWS, KILLER COPS, AND GENTRIFICATION OF THE BAY, I JUST WANTED TO CREATE A SPACE WHERE WE COULD EMBRACE OUR POSITIVE ENERGY; A PLACE WHERE WE COULD BE OURSELVES INSTEAD OF THE LABELS WE TAKE ON FROM EVERYWHERE ELSE.
