4:00PM – Late
Big Art Studios at American Steel
1960 Mandela Parkway, Oakland, CA
Sand by the Ton. Now there’s an idea.
A collective massive beach theme mega party with the diverse likes of Dan Das Man & Karen Cusalito, The Mutaytor, Flaming Lotus Girls, Symbiosis, Gooferman, Space Cowboys, False Profit, Neuro Weapon, The Mermen, Gravity Point, Kid Beyond, Eric McFadden, Drop Motion, super sized art cars, foolin’ & toolin’, carnival games, 200 tons of sand, 5 (!) swimming pools and a whole lot more in 250,000 square foot of action. Yowza.
The OT will be coming at you with a full on production. Our snazzy ‘O’Pod, visuals screens, lights and maybe even some fire. Ya, say like it Beavis: “he he, fire”.
Music from our crew with Syd Gris, Dutch, Vinkalmann, Cosmic Selector, & Jeff Taisch. We’re joined in our area by Adnan Sharif & Mickey Tello from Gravity Point. This is not one to miss. (And yes, we remember Dustfish. This will be fully legal and permitted, at a cleaned up American Steel warehouse just across the bridge in West Oakland.)
