Haus Party 

A new showcase of local talent from OMF.

Alfonso Dominguez and Hunter Marshall, the organizers of the Oakland Music Festival each fall, have a proven sixth sense for booking artists on the verge of blowing up: SZA, one of the headliners of the 2014 edition, was recently featured as the only other guest vocalist besides Drake on Rihanna’s acclaimed album, ANTI. Anderson Paak, who was just starting to get buzz as Dr. Dre’s protégé when he headlined OMF in 2015, stunned fans and music industry heads alike with his soulful LP, Malibu, released last month. At OMF’s new monthly event, Haus Party, audiences can now check out the pair’s prescient tastes year round. Held at the recently re-opened Uptown Nightclub in Oakland, the concert series is dedicated to spotlighting local talent. This month’s edition features R&B crooner 1-O.A.K., Berkeley rapper Rexx Life Raj, and San Francisco producer Julia Lewis. DJs Azure and Agana will be behind the decks, with bilingual Oakland rap duo Los Rakas as hosts.
