Re: “Oakland’s Eastlake Music Festival at Lake Merritt

This juvenile, divisive paragraph makes me want to skip Oakland's festival and drive over the bridge to Dolores, where people can hang out without pretentious journalists judging their identity.

Agreed. Two reminders in one paragraph that your beloved city is going to shit. Thanks, Ebx.

Tacky toss off remark about Dolores Park. Detracts from the story. Ugh.

This is why we all have 24-hour donut shops now. Thanks Green Day!

Re: “The Berkeley Bluegrass Festival Returns To Freight & Salvage

Correction:
Tessa Schwartz (not Tracy Schwartz) is the name of the fiddler in 35 Year of Trouble. Helen Lude (not Lundee) is the multi-instrumentalist in the same band.

Re: “Oakland’s Soul and Funk DJ Nights Now Rival Those In San Francisco

Good start in introducing and highlighting the vinyl scene in Oakland. However, this piece comes off as a list of the different nights with no actual substance as to what the atmosphere is like at these events. Where are the photos that highlight the real heroes of these events, the supporters who come and dance, the DJs who pour their hearts and souls into keeping this music relevant, the photographers who capture the true essence of what it is to be at one of these nights? The whole scene deserves more attention than a simple article that tries to capture the feeling of these nights, but fails in doing so by simply listing the events and the few folks that are behind them. This scene deserves more than a quick blurb. A lot more could have been said about this scene to truly highlight the movement that is currently happening.
