Re: “On the Phenomenon of Burger Boogaloo — and the Oakland Couple Who Makes It Happen

I have attended the Boogaloo for the past three years and am going again this year. I have noticed the prices going up to the point where a reasonably affordable event is getting pretty pricy. I dig the DIY feel, but the price is going to be hitting more than a few people's pain points. Iggy Pop, X, Devo and the like are great acts, but what gives this festival is unique flavor are the acts that come on earlier. Why not leave the bigger acts to venues like the Warefield (Iggy) or the Independent (X) and leave the Boogaloo more funky and affordable. Just a thought.

Re: “Oakland's SOL Development Uses Music As a Catalyst for Healing

SOLs music reminds me that collective energy and purpose still exist. Some of the best people Ive ever met, and hands down the most necessary words out there right now.

Thanks for standing up for the TQ of LGBTQ! Too often trans and queer ppl are forgotten, and ignored or worse yet intentionally slighted.

Re: “Sound Arts Fading Out at Ex'pression College

I am a parent that feels my daughter was involved in a bate snd switch. We had went to an open house for Ex'pressions college in San Jose. After co signing for my daughter for School loans. Things quickly changed in what was offered with in the first year. Books that she was to receive got changed to ebooks with a limited time if use. Class schedules changed due to lack if enrollment. With that they changed the length in the time if the program. She was unable to keep her part time employment due to class times that we changed. Eventually she had to withdraw due to all of the changes, she was unable to support herself her class schedules was to scattered And decieded to searve her countryAnd and still us paying off her loans. I have tried to consolidate or get a her loans on hold for a year while she was in basic training. It's a shame that they have done this, and can be allowed to do this with no consequences

Re: “Why Aren't There More Latinx Nights in Oakland?

I would really like more diversity in the sound. Salsa is fine, but how about incorporating Mexican and Central American sounds - you know - reflective of the music of the majority of Latinos who live in the bay area. Salsa nights always turn into a very Americanized performative sport anyways.

Re: “Bedtime for the Night Light Means a New Day for the Elbo Room

"They installed custom brass-tacked leather chairs, lit the place with bare-filament bulbs, and stuffed the cocktail menu with whiskey."

Whiskey stingily poured from a jigger and sold at $15/drink in a plastic cup. No doubt to pay for the fancy chairs.

Pro tip- if you are going to charge a fortune for the drinks, at least give a good pour into a decent glass. Bars make their money on liquor sales, no?

Well, charging too much for a crappy pour is a good way to not make money. Because while you'll make $13 profit on the first drink, you won't be making any more, because I won't feel compelled to buy a second, or return at any point in the future to buy more.

Hell, for the price of two drinks, I'd rather just buy the bottle and have friends come over.

Re: “On the Phenomenon of Burger Boogaloo — and the Oakland Couple Who Makes It Happen

There's obviously an opening available for a reasonably priced (but professionally run) alternate music festival, especially given the half-death of the Austin Psych Fest and the totally terrible dust conditions at Desert Daze. Please let Burger be that place. Get the line shit figured out WELL BEFORE THE CONCERT since Desert Daze didn't. Have enough actual food vendors (not just frilly vegan-friendly junk, real food) available. And have fun. All of these things CAN be done in the same place. Let's have this be that place.

Re: “The Top 12 Bay Area Music Releases of 2017

Recommendations appreciated -- Ragana I name-checked there in the intro and I agree that Russell Butler's "I'm Dropping Out of Life" is solid and noteworthy. Will look into Kevin Allen Project!
