Please join us in raising crucial funds and community support for Adobe Books. The bookshop is suffering from an imminent rent increase; the shop has only a couple months to regain its footing before it succumbs to closure.

The event will feature music, comedy, art installations, and a silent art auction with artists who have been part of the Adobe community over the years.

The auction will feature work from:
Randy Colosky
Rachel Corey
Kyle Field
Matt Furie
Michelle Guintu
David Horvitz
Colter Jacobsen
Chris Johanson
Adam Katseff
Kevin Killian
Sandy Kim
Carey Lin
Patricia Mera
Jason Morris
New Bohemia Signs
Tyler Sharky
Cedar Sigo
James Sterling Pitt
Kyle Ranson
Raphael Villet
Christopher West
Lindsey White
... and many more!

Despite dire financial difficulties, shop owner Andrew McKinley and Backroom Gallery curator Katie Hood Morgan have produced well over thirty exhibitions and events over the last two years, providing artists assistance through promotion, distribution, producing announcements and press, installation and opening night receptions. Come celebrate this important community center!

Funds raised from the event will directly fund Adobe’s efforts to remain open and operating as a bastion for San Francisco residents – many of who sought refuge as new transplants, and who have since flourished. Among these artists are John Dwyer and Greer McGettrick, and their respective bands Thee Oh Sees and The Mallard are lending themselves to performing in-kind. Both bands will have merchandise tables, with flexi records and silkscreened posters in limited quantity, proceeds going to Adobe.
