the Can-Cannibals will eat your face, for $8.

Just read over at East Bay Express about the completion of the Oakland venue’s year-long renovation. I’m stoked that we now have another awesome place to add to the likes of Fox Theater, Starry Plough, Stork Club, and the Uptown in the ever-needed arena of non-SF music venues.
