Take a Walk on the Wild Side


Welcome to Polk Music. The purpose of this blog is to document the work that I am doing in order to put together a short documentary on the natives of Polk St. in San Francisco. If you are unfamiliar with the area, hopefully I can give you a brief glimpse into the lives of some of the colorful folk who call this area home. Polk Street is one of the city’s hubs for sex workers, most of the ones that operate in this particular part of town are Trans and hang out in front of Diva’s or in front of the local Firehouse that’s next door. Although well known for it’s ladies of the night, Polk Street is also fast becoming a great spot for local entertainment as well. Saturated with good bars, and restaurants, as well as some good tattoo shops and a lot of interesting residents, there is always something going on at any given moment of the day. If you feel like indulging all of your Lou Reed fantasies and taking a walk on the wild side, then hopefully this will help. So kick back and listen to the beat of  a different drum.
