The second stop on the She Bends tour was San Francisco’s The Midway, a creative complex hosting events that span music, culinary and art disciplines. The largest programing for She Bends to date, Midway hosted headlining musicians, panel discussions, happy hours, neon demos and a salon dinner in conjunction with the show.
We are happy to announce that The Midway will host a 2nd annual She Bends in 2019. Check back here for updates.
