Our “pop-up” on Haight Street accidentally lasted two years. Oops!
Fleshies at Silver Sprocket by Jonathan Botkin
Next week we’ll be opening back up inside of 1-2-3-4 Go! Records at 1038 Valencia St., and will be open every day from noon to 8pm.
We’re splitting the shop with them like a 90’s sitcom with a line drawn down the middle.
The new space isn’t as big, but we have it locked in through March of 2021 so we can do a better job planning ahead and setting up events with our favorite artists.
Our grand opening will be an art show of punk rock pinups by Liz Suburbia sometime in February.

Next World Tarot: Pocket Edition & Art Book by Cristy C Road
Following up on the breathtaking “Next Word Tarot” deck by queer-punk-feminist-latinex icon Cristy C Road, we are pleased to present an over-sized hardcover art-book with expanded card descriptions in both English and Spanish, along with an economically priced “pocket edition” of the original deck at standard Tarot deck size.
Featuring body outlaws, endangered cultures, and anti-colonial belief systems, THE NEXT WORLD TAROT envisions a world where justice relies on respect and revolutionary love. The Fool’s Journey is about smashing systematic oppression, owning their truths, being accountable to the people and places that support them, and taking back a connection to their body that may have been lost through trauma or societal brainwashing. The NEXT WORLD TAROT is a visual spectacle of both the battle cry and the re-connection between outcasts and their criminalized identities.
Hardcover: 176 full-color pages; 9” x 12”; SRP: $50.00; ISBN: 9781945509384
Pocket deck: 78 full-color cards and guide-book; 2.5″ x 3.75″; SRP: $20; ISBN: 9781945509377
