Come out on Friday April 6th, and watch downtown Oakland come alive. From 7 – 11, Oaklandish will be bumping with free drinks, music, and art. 1444 Broadway, in the heart of downtown Oakland. As always, this party is open to everyone with local love in their hearts. The night’s festivities will feature:
Music from Dynamic, with soulful sounds to stimulate the mind. The SF Chronicle labeled them “One of the Best Hip-Hop Bands of the Bay,” and they bring down the house wherever they play. Dynamic’s signature, home-grown sound is internationally recognizable: solid grooves, strong melodies and powerful-yet-simple lyrics.
A DJ set by Ammbush of the legendary Oakland Faders.
Art by Meri Brin. Our Favorite Friends is a show of prints about animals that we live with and interact with in our urban and suburban environment. For ten years, Meri has been watching and examining the ways in which humans interact with animals both in our element and theirs. She’ll also have pocket-sized art (from notebooks to prints) available for $3 – $20.
