Walking through the fringes of San Francisco’s financial district on a Sunday evening, hearing the unmistakable thumping bass of a dance party was a welcome surprise.Following the music through the concrete corridors, I ended up at the ninth annual How Weird Street Faire, an ‘experiment in creating peace’ and sharing art and celebration. The festival consumed seven blocks in downtown San Francisco with crazily dressed punters dancing, drinking and hugging to the tune of DJ beats. Unexpected, and a great surprise.
