9 San Francisco Artists of the Year.

:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

If you think a "typical" RAW SF event is boundary pushing, just WAIT until you see what these 38 cutting edge artists have in store for you at the RAWards!

This event will be like no other we've thrown yet.
Get ready for an overdose of exhilarating art, fashion, music!

"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

"Art crawls and gallery parties may be synonymous with Friday nights, but RAW SF's monthly art showcase re-institutes Thursday as the new Friday. Leveraging the concept of "power in numbers," each month RAW SF packs 1015 Folsom with the work of over 50 emerging and established Bay Area artists — along with aerialists, burlesque performers, DJs, vendors, roaming photographers, body painters, and some 750 partiers. And that's all before the after-party." -Flavorpill
