FREE Moore Brothers Show @ Oakland’s First Fridays

Art Murmur Map

Remember when I told you to go to the Oakland Art Murmur before the months of incessant rain started?  Well it looks like global warming has bought you a few more weeks of rain-free fun (my circadian rhythm was so confused by yesterday’s nearly 80º temperature that I forgot it was winter and literally asked my friend what you do this time of year in Tahoe, to which she replied “ski” and looked at me like I was some kind of idiot).

And the snowcaps couldn’t be melting at a better time, because December’s First Friday will feature a Moore Brothers concert at the Uptown that will be, in their words, “FREE as fuck.”  The Moore Brothers hail from Nevada City, the magical region that has spawned the likes of Joanna Newsom, Alela Diane, Aaron Ross, Lee Bob Watson, and Mariee Sioux (some of my favorite musicians hail from that little Grass Valley town—you should check them all out).

Also playing are Oakland’s own All My Pretty Ones and B. Hamilton (plus $2 Pabst before 9pm).  So after you get an eyeful of art at all the galleries, go get an earful of awesome.

Friday December 4th, 9pm (6pm doors)
Moore Brothers show @ the Uptown
1928 Telegraph Ave. @ 19th St.

Chloe - Pennywise Reporter

Chloe's youth was split between California and Kauai, frolicking on a macadamia nut farm in the tropics and landing finally in the Bay Area. Raised by super-Jew hippies, and the youngest of three sisters, Chloe learned early the virtues of thrift, economy, and green living. To the chagrin of her parents (who hoped, of course, for a Jewish doctor or lawyer), Chloe has put her degree from UC Berkeley to great use by becoming a folk singer. As "Chloe Makes Music" she plays shows throughout SF and beyond, donning vintage frocks, selling handmade merch, and pinching pennies as she sings for her supper. Calling Berkeley home for the last six years, you can think of Chloe as the website's East Bay Correspondent, opening your eyes to the hippie-filled, tree-hugging, organic-loving, vegan-eating, but way-overlooked and awesome assets of Berkeley, Oakland, and beyond.
