HOODSTOCK Dance Party – 3/13/10 – Oakland, CA

Monday, March 8th, 2010



Hoodstock DJ’s Miggy Stardust and DJ Neto Present:
at Ghost Town Gallery, 2519 San Pablo Ave in Oakland, CA.
Featuring DJ Inti and Big Dix.
Starts at 10pm and ends at pffffff
All Ages

Unofficial Anarchist Bookfair After Party!  (Make sure you go to that event in San Francisco earlier in the day.)

$5-$10 donation (No one turned away for lack of funds.) A portion of the money goes to Holly Work’s defense fund who was arrested during the Oscar Grant Protest and framed up by the pigs.

Hoodstock Winter games got shut down early (Only about ten bands played), so here is the second half… the craziest dance party to ever hit anywhere.

They ask that you please keep the graffiti off Ghost Town Gallery the night of the event because it’s really hard to find a venue for Hoodstock.

After Math – HOODSTOCK Winter Games 2010 – Oakland, CA

Saturday, January 30th, 2010

Looks like we didn’t actually miss posting a day. Our website time wasn’t set to the correct Pacific time zone, but we just fixed it.

We went and took some after math photos of the block this morning. A bunch of people from the neighborhood were standing around trying to figure out what the hell happened last night. People got a little crazy standing on each others shoulders and blasting monster size tags directly in front of the business owner. Eventually someone got arrested. I’m not sure who it was or if they got their name. The police said that they shut down the party because of the graffiti and that otherwise they would have just driven by. Something to think about. Should the graffiti community keep it mellow around gallery openings to support the art scene? Does a mob have the ability to not feed off itself? Anyway, it was really fun and the majority of the bands got to play.

Femer Graffiti.

HOODSTOCK Winter Games Report Back

Saturday, January 30th, 2010

HOODSTOCK Oakland (Winter Games 2010) was a huge success. Too many bands were booked so it was broken into three stages; a warehouse; a house; and a converted city bus all on the same block. DJ’s played dope sets between bands and Political Gridlock, Not My Government, and Media Dissent hung an large poster art show. Outside was a camp fire and an army of writers crushing the block. Across the street were massive monster tags. The majority of the performers finished before an under cover cop tackled a writer and a line of cop cars and a van swooped in.
I’ll report back on the after parties, but they are still going on so I don’t want to blow them up. I don’t think there is any venue that can hold Hoodstock Oakland.
I’ll also try and post some aftermath photos tomorrow. Damn that was fun.
