San Francisco enjoys some of the most vibrant street art anywhere around. In this episode, Spark takes a look at a few of the performers near Union Square, including classically trained opera singers Robert Close and Litz Plummer, as well as the Bay City Luv gospel choir. Then wander to the Mission District, which is host to many wandering bands such as Los Cazadores del Sur, who find a home in the restaurants and bistros of the vibrant Latin neighborhood. And then meet up with roving tailor Michael Swaine, who mends more than just the holes in clothes in San Francisco's Tenderloin District.
