Do you dare call it Frisco?
Only in my rap mixes.
If San Francisco had a tagline it would read...
...always ready with a costume for the party.
What is beautiful in SF?
The whole DIY culture that values the underground and inspire over the obvious.
What about SF makes you smile?
All the wild garage and psych rock.
You're proud to be a San Franciscan because...
It's a place that will forever value the weirdo and the underdog.
