Though Feels III took place in July, Oakland bloggers-turned-party-throwers Wine & Bowties are back at it with another installment of the mini music and arts festival, Feels IV, which takes place November 28, 6 p.m. to 1 a.m., at American Steel Studios (1960 Mandela Pkwy., Oakland).
The previous edition featured indoor and outdoor stages and included memorable performances by local rappers Tia Nomore and Ezale, as well as the Odd Future-affiliated neo-soul sextet, The Internet. Iamsu!, who happened to be in the audience, flitted around on a "hoverboard" throughout the night. Young, up-and-coming artists packed the walls of American Steel's spacious warehouse with artwork in a variety of media.
At Feels IV, you can expect a similar audiovisual rager. This time, performers include Canadian producer Ryan Hemsworth, LA-based rapper Antwon (who got his start in the Oakland music scene), Atlanta R&B songstress ABRA, Oakland punk band Meat Market, and soulful Richmond singer Rayana Jay. Local electro pop musician and visual artist Sofia Cordova, aka Xuxa Santamaria, will perform and show her artwork in the gallery portion of the event. In addition, local DJs Neto 187, MoreVibe$, Namaste Shawty, DJ Dials, and others will keep the party going until late.
