Our picks for this weekend!

So much fun stuff happening this weekend!

TONIGHT (Friday)

Rodrigo y Gabriela @ Fox Theater in Oakland (SOLD OUT)

The incredible rock duo RODRIGO Y GABRIELA will perform at the beautiful Fox Theater on Friday, May 9th!

The show is SOLD OUT – Thank You!



Acoustic rock maestros Rodrigo y Gabriela have announced American tour dates to support the release of their new album 9 Dead Alive. 9 Dead Alive (ATO) will be released on April 29; it is the band’s first record of new material in five years and was recorded and produced by Rod and Gab at their studio in Ixtapa, Mexico.

Gabriela says: “My idea was to record it as if we were to playing a live gig in your living room.” The end result is a thrilling explosion of rhythm and melody, capturing Rodrigo y Gabriela at their most inventive and exuberant. 9 Dead Alive sees Rodrigo y Gabriela playing face to face, guitar versus guitar, bursting with melodic energy and rhythmic invention. Recorded at their Pacific Coast hideaway in late summer, the album captures the warmth and spontaneity of two great musicians locked in together; perfectly distilled into nine new songs teeming with desire, elegance and gusto.
