emael ( and Diego Pacheco ( invite you to enjoy rooftop cocktails on the summer solstice in celebration of their first book, The Last American Icon. Recognized by San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom as an “outstanding professional achievement,” the book is offered as a guide to help the reader meditate daily on living together peacefully on this planet.

If you have been searching for a completely new urban ritual, join us for this unique event. Expect to come aboard a living vessel that will host visual stimulation and a freeform mix of techno & house music, with doses of glitch, pop, and new wave by dj space_mike. Wearable objects, costumes galore and avant-garde fashion are strongly encouraged.

Vodka, wine and hors d’oeuvres will be served.
