Live Wire – What’s on Tap

on February 19, 2009

So… pardon the delay, but I will get the video from the wonderful Zydeco show at Just Dance Ballroom uploaded in the next day or two.

But in the mean time, you should gear up to join me for this week’s outing: The Loyd Family Players (a huge drum line), Dgiin and Buxter Hoot’n live at The Starry Plough this Satuday, Feb. 21. Show starts around 9pm, $9 at the door. It’s going to be a really fun show! (

Now, a bit about Live Wire. This blog will showcase awesome live music venues around North Oakland and the surrounding area. There are tons of great shows going on every week and in this changing economy, who needs to pay for bridge fare, parking and overpriced drinks when there are great shows and good times to be had right here in our own back yard -– and I am certainly taking recommendations for hot venues.
