As a former city dweller, I can attest that it sometimes feels like all the things worth doing happen in the city. As a new resident of the town, I can only apologize and hang my head for ever thinking that was the case!

Hoodstock – the four day musical extravaganza scheduled for this weekend – is clear proof that Oakland holds it’s own in the Bay Area music scene! (no word on which side of the bay Treasure Island leans toward). Full run down on this weekends raucous good times below!

Friday pre-party with Le Heat @ Paradisio and Hoodstock art opening at Eli’s Mile High Club.
