Oakland Metro Operahouse is a large warehouse venue that books mostly punk, metal, and hardcore acts. It's also home to Hoodslam, the monthly wrestling event, and the famed variety show Tourettes Without Regrets, which features slapstick comedy, meat-hurling contests, formidable freestyle battles, spoken-word poetry, and dirty haiku — usually to sold-out crowds.
