Oakland's ninth annual Art & Soul Festival, taking place in Downtown Oakland on August 15 and 16, finally has a lineup. We won't complain that it took them until three weeks before the festival to announce this. We also won't complain that we're slightly underwhelmed by who they ended up booking, although some of the acts excite us. We'll just give you the names: Shawn Colvin, the Bodeans, Will Downing, Bobby Caldwell, Mo'Fone, Ramena Vieira, and Walter Hawkins. And more, they promise. The festival, which also features art, dancing, and food, runs from noon to 6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Tickets cost $10 per day. Foibles aside, let's hope it's a success; the more good vibes in downtown Oakland these days, the better.
