Mission Creek Oakland Benefit 

When: Fri., March 23, 9 p.m. 2012
Price: $5

Last September's Mission Creek Oakland -- the East Bay-offshoot of the long-running San Francisco Mission Creek Music & Arts Festival -- injected new life into the independent and underground music celebration. As artists and musicians have been gradually priced out of San Francisco, Oakland has reaped the benefit, and thus it follows that Mission Creek Oakland would be bigger and longer than its West Bay originator. The month-long affair was all the more impressive considering the practically nonexistent budget organizer KiyomiTanouye was working with. To gear up for 2012's event (which the Express will co-present), Mission Creek Oakland will hold a fundraiser on Friday, Mar. 23, at Vitus (201 Broadway, Oakland), featuring AJA, Some Ember (electro pop from Man/Miraclefrontman Dylan Travis, shoegaze trio VIR, and Field Trips, whose lo-fi, psychedelic, beachy songs sound like something you'd discover on some dusty cassette from the late-Sixties. 9 p.m., $5.
