Located across from the newly renovated Fox Theater and down the street from Cafe Van Kleef, the Uptown is a cornerstone venue in the resurgent downtown Oakland music scene. The interior is split into two rooms: the main cocktail area - with high ceilings, a towering and ornate antique back bar, and rotating art displays - and the less-fancy performance area with a basic stage at the far end. A sizable patio, tucked into the concrete-and-brick urban gulch out back, gives smokers and non-smokers alike an outdoor escape from the noise within. Indie pop, punk, rockabilly, hip-hop, burlesque events, DJ nights, and other hipster-bait bookings fill the calendar most nights of the week.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
