A performance venue for the Ragged Wing Ensemble.

Representing international artists working in all media including relief-sculpture, painting, drawing, sculpture, and photography.

Originally founded in Temescal but later relocated to the heart of Oakland's Art Murmur district, SLATE curates seven shows a year, with special preference paid to painting, photography, and "work that has a strong formal aspect and an intellectual component."

The creative home to a handful of mixed-media artists who split studio rent on a couple of cozy rooms. It lacks regular hours but throws open its doors for monthly Art Murmurs, during which the young, art school-ish crowd floods into the small backyard.

A shoe store, art gallery, and venue space.

Thrashing, crashing, vocal-cord-straining, pounding-your-ears-and-obliterating-your-will-power rock. You know you love it. And the Stork Club is where rock makes its home. Tuesday through Sunday starting around 9:30 p.m., cover is usually just $5. Happy-hour DJs spin rock and punk tunes, a bluegrass jam happens on Mondays and Storking Comedy takes place on Tuesdays. The honky-tonk-style bar is decked out with red and yellow tinsel, Christmas lights, rubber-seated booths, a pool table, a jukebox, an extensive Barbie collection, and a tawdry, winter-wonderland atmosphere.

A recording studio specializing in experimental and improvised music. The studio also houses a small concert space.

With its dramatic red curtains, antique furniture, and ever-changing paint schemes, Studio Quercus has become a natural venue for installation shows benefiting from a certain historical patina.
