Saturday nights out on the town in Oakland or San Francisco present a dizzying choice of clubs/bars to head to with endless venues. The only thing is that most feature DJs spinning pre-recorded music, typically hip-hopr/rap or some strain of electronic dance, and generally geared for a younger demographic. But for "grown folk" who love music (especially live) and hitting the town on the weekend but are not fans of say mumble rap or the latest rapid BPM, thumping electronic dance music, when it comes to live music outside of overpriced concert halls and live music venues, the choices tend to be slim.
Hence tonight's premiere production of the progressive quality RnB/soul themed Superb music series at Oakland funky-but-fun NIght Light bar with performances from both San Francisco's neo-soul king Martin Luther and Oakland's on the rise stars: the hardworking jazzy tinged, R&b/soul fueled with a hip-hop sensibility instrumental & vocal ensemble DAWNARI. Both live acts for only $10 tickets (advance) is a welcome alternative to the Bay Area's often pricey weekend club nightlife scene.
