Oakland, Berkeley, And East Bay News, Events, Restaurants, Music, & Arts
I loved the Tchaikovsky. I am continually impressed by OEBS's ability to engage in a classic and introduce something new. I call OEBS "symphony light" as I always feel I can bring a newbie and that person will enjoy the symphony. I'm not a huge jazz fan, so it wouldn't be fair of me to rate the Brothers in Arts. There were some very good parts.
Event shows the address as 2071 Addison St., Berkeley, CA - this is incorrect.
The CORRECT ADDRESS is: 2081 Center Street, Berkeley, CA 94704
If you want to be thrilled by a piece of new theater, grab Ragged Wing Ensemble's current production "Redwolf" at the Flight Deck, quick, while it's here. Whatever you might think from the title, let's just say, it’s not pindownable – and that’s a compliment. What a fine balance of spare exquisite writing, directing, tasty ensemble acting, music and sound design, atmospheric song and choreography, set design, props, costumes, lighting...and artistic ideas. It is modern, relevant, rooted, penetrating, sensual, funny, creepy, subtle, gorgeously stylish, mythic, political and spiritual, and....just go see it! (Sorry about the too-many adjectives.) We're not from here, not reviewers and we know nobody. We're just saying! It’s so great to be surprised for once. G and M from NYC
This event actually starts at 7:30
We can hardly wait -- the night is coming and those who love Milton, this man who has always been there for so many of us in our time of need are going to show are love by being here this night for him. GREAT MUSIC, GOOD TIMES, WONDERFUL PEOPLE!!
This show has been revised - it is "Taken / Vessel" by Beili Liu, and paintings by Walter James Mansfield, Mari Marks, Tim Rice and Sanjay Vora.
OPENS FRI, OCT 3, 6-9PM during Oakland Art Murmur
Artist Lecture Talk Series - SAT, OCT 4, 2-3:30PM reception to follow.
Wow. When we heard at the last minute that BTE would be doing a "power acoustic" show since their equipment had been stranded in Wyoming, we were certainly let down for a couple of hours. But then the show started, and these guys turned out one of the best shows we have seen in years! They took the whole crowd by the balls and ROCKED hard, and entertained the bujeezus out of us. Can't say enough about how good this show was, all the more incredible in that it was the first night of the tour and they were handicapped by their missing guitars. BRAVO! I will see them again for sure! Loved it!
The location is actually Eastshore Park at Lake Merritt (550 El Embarcedro Oakland, CA) and not Berkeley.
Thanks for the coverage Sarah!
Pieces of Oakland is a mashup of visual images and maps from the past and the present, and plans for the future. Love the true Vision that is the heart of this exhibit. Oakland is alive, a place with history and character, and can be found through this exhibit. It is easier to get to the next place if you know where you are starting. The future of Oakland I got from this exhibit is Hope.
it's just not a real saturday without at least a cruise through the market to say hi to my favorite vendors or see my neighbors. Period...

The director, Michael French, is on the COVER of the latest EB Express Arts Preview Edition without explanation... but come and see what he has made of this brilliant, intelligent, and funny exploration of The World's Worst Sinner. Witnesses called to the stand include Mother Theresa, Caiaphas, Sigmund Freud and Satan himself, with appearances by a filthy-mouthed St. Monica, "Mary Mags," some Apostles, and Jesus himself. Amazing performances in an exciting little black box — Oakland's first dedicated theater space! Downtown where Broadway and Telegraph meet, about a block from the Fox.
This is going to be a great event for an amazing individual.
Best Zydeco in the Bay Area!
Is there a typo in your award. Did you mean to say that Mr. Siegel is the most REgressive candidate?
Bringing armed police into OUSD in 2000 is not PROgressive, is it?
Touting Oakland Public Bank, yet using Wells Fargo for the campaign account is not PROgressive, is it?
Running a conventional campaign that compels him to lend (not donate) $100k to his fund in NOT PROgressive, is it?
Please forgive my unwavering determination to expose the dirt in our politics.
What we need in An Oakland Mayor is a fiscally responsible moderate . You hail Dan as your progressive poster boy but he's more then that. Being a leftist, I wouldn't vote for him for anything. Not all EBE are progressive and I find your publication biased
seems like a rotating location?
where is this event?

I have been the coordinator for 3 years now, after this review was written. Each year we have more and more people (8,000 people came last year alone). We have a great line up of entertainment on the stage, kid's carnival rides, a petting zoo, over 90 community and craft vendors and over 15 food vendors.
Bring the whole family - if you want to beat the crowds, come at the beginning, as it gets full of folks later in the afternoon. Personally, I think it is a wonderful, family oriented and neighborly fair.
