Where It's At

We've been suffering through the ridiculously up-and-down summer weather like the rest of you. Which is why it was so great to spend a sunny afternoon the other day strolling through Jack London Square and picturing our Best of the East Bay Party. There may have been a cold beverage or two involved, but that shouldn't cheapen the sentiment. They may, however, have bolstered my desire to share the event a little more with the online public, so here's a few photos to give you an idea of where the cool stuff is happening.

Planning and Plodding (and Dancing!)

Best of the East Bay Party meetings have been bumped up to twice a week. Though we could easily spend another day per week talking about the event, it has been great devoting so much time to what we know is going to be a tent-pole event of the summer. I think the blog has so far hammered home the fact that we have cool bands playing. More of those to come, but hopefully we can start leaking out some of the other fun facts for this year's Best of the East Bay Party.

Band Spotlight #5: The Memphis Murder Men

by Joel Lively
Tue, Jun 22, 2010 at 3:31 PM

This week's East Bay Express Best of the East Bay Party band spotlight features a band with a great name, and a great sound. Fans of good ol' rock and roll will appreciate reading up on The Memphis Murder Men. When they were last in our office I told them I really liked their tunes. They appreciated the compliment, but assured me the key to their success is to just play straightforward rock; no tricks, easy to like. Makes sense to me.

Band Spotlight #4: Kit and the Branded Men

by Joel Lively
Wed, Jun 16, 2010 at 12:00 PM

This week's Band Spotlight has a special place in my heart. Kit and the Branded Men played our April 3 Taste for Artisans party and were a huge hit. Well, the whole party was a hit but K&BM (as I sometimes shorthand it) definitely held up their end of the entertainment bargain. We are really excited to have them on our stage again. Read on:

Band Spotlight #3: The Vat

by Jody Colley
Fri, Jun 11, 2010 at 6:22 PM

The Vat is a teen band with diverse roots. They have been performing together for four years with Bandworks, since they were nine and ten years old, and are just getting ready to tear into the local music scene. After a few lineup changes, they've settled with a six-person group. Members are from Berkeley, Albany, Point Richmond, Walnut Creek, and Pacifica (guitarist Isabel DiManlig and instructor Deirdre Lynds make the long drive every weekend).

Band Spotlight #2: Everything Must Go

by Jody Colley
Thu, Jun 10, 2010 at 4:16 PM

For ten years Oakland punk vets, Everything Must Go, have been agents of chaos. Their music and showmanship provoke controversy and dangerous fun with every show from small dive bars in the Czech countryside to large-scale festival crowds and world-class venues such as The Fillmore. Possessing a dedicated DIY ethic, the band operates in the underground Bay Area music scene and around the world, engineering their own recordings and booking tours of Europe and America with determination and the help of friends they have met over the years.

The Zydeco Flames have gained a reputation as the West Coast's premiere Zydeco band. The Flames consistently pack the house in venues ranging from contemporary clubs to major festivals and traditional dance halls. Their sizzling roots rhythms are timeless and the execution of them relentless, with a stunningly powerful groove.
