Goodbye LoBot 

Bid farewell to the beloved West Oakland underground venue and art space.

Sadly, LoBot is the latest underground venue and art space to lose its lease amid the housing crisis in Oakland, and the current tenants — a loose collective of twenty or so artists — have to leave by the end of the month. As they move out the equipment and art supplies they (and tenants before them) have accumulated throughout the course of LoBot’s thirteen years of existence, the collective’s artists and musicians are also throwing one last hoorah: the Goodbye LoBot concert and art sale. They’ll have cheap art, food, and drinks for purchase, and a wide variety of performances by folks including rapper Squadda B (of Green Ova South and Main Attrakionz), electropop outfit Aquacure, punk band Unity (which features Jeff Cheung, Alex Shen, and Ian Tatum of Meat Market), and many more. Party one last time before LoBot is — very regretfully — gone forever.
