Motown on Mondays 

When: Mondays, 8 p.m.
Price: free
Prozack Turner has certainly made good on his promise to “avoid the Top-40 hip-hop trap” at Legionnaire Saloon, his new Uptown bar. The venue’s parties showcase a wide variety of genres — disco, country, and more — and it recently began hosting one of the Bay’s longest-running weekly events, Motown on Mondays. Started in San Francisco in 2009, Motown on Mondays has since spread to Los Angeles, New York City, Austin, Honolulu, and now Oakland, and brings together young and old fans with its mix of Sixties soul, doo-wop, and R&B. At Legionnaire Saloon (2272 Telegraph Ave., Oakland), DJs have included Pam the Funkstress of The Coup and J-Boogie, and this week will feature DJ Fuze of Digital Underground. Fuze helped produce some of Digital Underground’s biggest hits, including “Freaks of the Industry,” “Doowutchyalike,” and “The Humpty Dance,” and has collaborated with Tupac and The Luniz, but he’s also made a name for himself as one of the Bay’s most eclectic cratediggers, amassing a collection of soul, house, and world music. Expect him to dust off some of his best records for the occasion.
