Hiero Day 

When: Mon., Sept. 3, 12 p.m. 2012
Price: free
Oakland doesn’t really have a problem naming days after popular musicians — Ron Dellums dubbed August 25 “Keyshia Cole Day” in honor of the East Oakland-raised, multi-platinum singer. Last year, Jean Quan declared October 7 “PopLyfe Day” after the teen pop band. So the folks at hip-hop label Hiero Imperium Records took it upon themselves to rechristen September 3 — erstwhile known as “Labor Day” — “Hiero Day,” in honor of local hip-hop. And it will follow suit with a wild celebration, featuring a host of hip-hop artists with local ties, including Vallejo rapper Moe Green, Blackalicious, The Kev Choice Ensemble, The Honor Roll Crew, Planet Asia, San Francisco emcee Equipto, and, of course, various members of the Hiero stable. Any one of those acts could be a headliner in its own right; collectively, they’ll surely make a fantastic show. The free, all-ages show happens on Monday, Sept. 3, at The New Parish (579 18th St., Oakland). Noon-6 p.m., free.
