Come celebrate the release of Oblio's debut full length album "Take Your Bitcoins To The Mission." Hailing from Oakland this three-piece indie rock band is a novel sonic catalog of matters of the heart. Oblio creates songs that earnestly depict the human experience: loss, joy, hope, and above all, love. Joining them is Sound of Lashes - an eclectic all female rock band. These badasses create eyelash batting, whip cracking, barrier hacking norm- smashing, soul blowing & mind knowing original music. And East Bay rockers Brasil whose bio reads: "By the ultra-local shall you achieve the universal." https://www.facebook.com/events/1599871233563130/

The Honky Tonk all vinyl country music party with Golden Gram, Handsome Hawk and Prozack Turner
1st Floor Saloon
NOW EVERY FIRST AND THIRD THURSDAYS !!
The nightlife scene in Oakland was outraged when The Honky Tonk party first burst onto the scene at The Legionnaire Saloon. Prozack Turner, with his jeans and long hair, and Golden Gram, with his earring and prison record, played all vinyl outlaw country and classics and proved that you can get where you want without following anyone else's lead. They tear down the boundaries of country, rock and Americana. Most places didn't know what to do with them, but Oakland did. Today, The Honky Tonk is one of the most popular classic country music destinations in the bay area. Golden Gram and Prozack went out and recruited a local legend that some believed to be urban myth, Handsome Hawk Valentine. After witnessing his vinyl hayrides at various dark, seedy, scary Oakland dives and Narcotics Anonymous meetings, they extended an offer to come on board. They are all drinking buddies as well as dj buddies. It's now one of the most imitated relationships in all of the country music dj world. Prozack Turner makes no secret of the many personal problems he's faced through the years, while Golden Gram has had to be bailed out of jail on occasion to dj at The Honky Tonk. No one knows where Hawk holes up when he ain't raising a ruckus. Come down and enjoy a glass of bourbon and a beer and listen to songwriting at its best, the way it was meant to be heard, on vinyl. Seeing an episode of the Grand Ole Opry, A Sergio Leone film, or Hee Haw on the big screen only adds to the authentic atmosphere! So dust off them cowboy boots and head on down!
$7 gets you a Miller High Life and Fireball shot
