This week Life of the Law presents LIVE LAW… stories from people living with the rapid fire shifts that come with tech in the Bay Area, folks who are pushing back against the gentrification and alienation to try to make real life contact through music, journalism, murals, and filmmaking.

LIVE LAW San Francisco: Initial Public Offering took place on Friday night, February 23 at The Polish Club in San Francisco’s Mission District. We recorded the night so we could share it with you — stories by Fantastic Negrito, Marcus Thompson, Irene Tu, Riddhi Shah, Troy Williams and Sirron Norris.

We’ll let our host for the night, tech startup entrepreneur and LOTL Advisory Board Member Jessica McKellar introduce you…
