About this event


"The best late-afternoon, early-Sunday evening Music Hang in the Bay Area!"

After two years of epic, sold-out shows at our former location at Rocky's Market in Oakland's Brooklyn Basin, we have moved into our NEW HOME at Faction Brewery in Alameda, CA.

It's GORGEOUS! Enjoy bay breezes and epic sunsets on our spacious patio embracing the San Francisco skyline. Comfortable seating for 100 and over 150 FREE PARKING SPOTS!

If the weather is bad, we move the party INSIDE to our Open Air & Art-Filled taproom!

Either way, the SHOW WILL GO ON!

*** World-Class Music - International Artists - Local Stars ***

*** CHILDREN 12 and Under are WELCOME and ALWAYS FREE! **
