Grace Ives @ Art House — Friday 10PM
Grace Ives is a synth-pop— you might even say bedroom-pop— musician who’s just trying to “keep it minimal” as her Spotify bio says. Her instrumentals have a certain ferocity to them that, when coupled with her silvery vocals, make for a distinct lo-fi pop sound. Come early for some great campy, electro-pop from Jack Whitescarver!!

Lomelda // Goo // Walla @ Earth House — Saturday 9PM
ahhhhhhh!! this show is gonna be so good!! Lomelda is one of the most incredible forces in music right now, putting to shame all other indie singer-songwriters in the game rn. Her music is just as powerful in its close, intimate moments as it is in its triumphant, cathartic moments. you do NOT want to miss this one.
Also the return of Goo??? On a weekend that already had the return of Overcoats, we’re gonna be treated to another alum band that deserves a comeback. They’ve been playing shows in NYC and their gentle tones will be floating through the halls of earth house this saturday. I’m getting so excited just thinking about it !!
POC Showcase @ X house — Saturday 10PM
Plenty of great acts playing at this, including Cicero Presley, Kevin Holliday, Langston Lynch, and Oakland’s very own CYW. Roll thru !!
