The Oakland Slam is no longer running like it used to where you could go to a venue, sit down, have some drinks, and enjoy.
It is now “virtual” or “online”.
Low-quality grainy camera poor sound quality stream on FB live.
Check out their Facebook if you do want to watch.
Oakland Poetry Slam
The venue seems to change a lot.
I’m not sure if they’ll ever get a solid home.
They have been at Oasis, Spice Monkey, New Parkway, Studio 361, Awaken Cafe, Lukas Tap Room, and so on. Now it may be online only. Forever?
But seriously, check these guys out, the events are in Downtown Oakland only blocks from BART. Oakland Poetry Slam, Comedy Slam and open mic nights in Oakland.
