Oakland's got another new music festival, and this one promises to take over more than ten venues in downtown on Saturday, April 19. Organizers of Oakland Drops Beats, which is being billed as the city's "first ever music crawl," just announced its debut lineup: Kev Choice Ensemble, B. Hamilton, Prozack Turner, Jel, and Odd Nosdam are among those scheduled to perform the free, all-day, all-ages event. Organizers said they took their inspiration from the Venice Music Crawl in Los Angeles and added "Oakland’s grit, soul, community, and culture," according to an announcement released today.
