Blackalicious 'Barack' Party Pops Up In Oakland Sunday

Posted By on Thu, Sep 27, 2007 at 5:28 PM

Barack Obama LogoI'm staring at a set list from Blackalicious on my mantle, framed and all that. "Alphabet Acrobatics" through "Chemical Calistenics." Go try to get one of your own in Oakland, Sunday, assuming you're not getting sodomized on Folsom or listening to sodomy jokes in Golden Gate Park, and maybe show some love for Barack.

Obama's gonna get creamed in California without a whole lotta help, so as a reader service, we present a note to the Obama team.

"Thanks for Blacka, yo. Now snag The Coup and fly Keisha Cole back for Sunday. Then get:

1) A Madvillian "Beat Konducta" Volume

2) A track on Dr. Dre's "Detox"


3) an entire C-Bo record to lock up enough counties. -ed

From the PR caught by listings editor John Graham:

Per the PR:

Free show this Sunday, 9/30, featuring Blackalicious and other musical guests.

It's a "Barack" Party--we're closing 1 block of 14th St. at Broadway in downtown Oakland to celebrate the opening of Barack Obama's first office in northern CA. The Bay Area is home to thousands of dedicated grassroots volunteers working to elect Barack Obama and bring about the change this country so desperately needs.

This event is NOT about politics. All are welcome. We wish to promote community, connection, and inclusiveness.

There will also be food, activities for kids and families, and opportunities to learn more about Barack Obama.

Please join us!

  • 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.'"
