Oakland Drops Beats

Oakland Drops Beats
Last spring, Oakland Indie Mayhem programmer Sarah Sexton and a group of other local music bookers and musicians came together to produce Oakland Drops Beats, a free all-day music festival in Downtown Oakland. Now, they’re back for another edition of the event on December 20. The day of music will function like a Noise Pop-esque music crawl, except the performances will take place in unconventional venues and the lack of ticketing will eliminate the horrendous lines. Stages will be set up at Awaken Cafe, Solespace, Mary Weather, Vamp Records, and six other spots in the downtown area. One highlight of the event will be local rapper Jay Stone’s performance at Mary Weather (333 15th St., Oakland), along with beatmaker Mark Aubert at Vamp Records (331 19th St., Oakland), and the funky Fantastic Negrito at Solespace (1714 Telegraph Ave., Oakland), as well. The event will also include music talks, such as “Music and Education in Oakland” at Joyce Gordon Gallery, and workshops, like a beatmaking introduction at Tilde. Even better if you’ve never heard these bands or been to these spaces, because now is your chance to get in the loop for free. Free

Katabatik Winter Solstice 2014

Sat., Dec. 20, 9 p.m.
Katabatik Winter Solstice 2014
An institution among noise practitioners and electronic experimentalists, Katabatik is little known outside of the sect. Active for more than a decade, the booking enterprise, record label, and self-described “meta-communications platform” typically hosts seasonal events in unprintable locations. The Katabatik campout, for instance, occurs every summer in the woods a few hours outside of town, and earlier this year it featured about forty performers across three days. As attuned to the natural world as Katabatik’s presentation appears, the industrial techno, throbbing modular synth exercises, and magnetic-tape manipulations it deals in don’t square with the usual musical associations of pastoral environs. Modern primitives plugged in. At East Oakland’s refurbished Palace Theater (1445 23rd Ave.), Katabatik’s Winter Solstice event on Saturday features a dozen acts, including the supple and melodious Group Rhoda, Brandon Nickell’s viscous synth grooves, DJs, and a chill-out sideshow in the mezzanine featuring ambient house from Fluorescent Grey and others. Attend, just don’t leave a trace. $12 - $20
