Band Spotlight #16: Fans of Jimmy Century

This band was a fun addition. After we thought our Main Stage line-up was finalized, a brash young drummer walked in to the office to let us know his band should be playing the party. All sorts of skeptical, we humored him as he played us their music; instantaneous approval. Fans of Jimmy Century have had some spectacular national exposure on television and dance charts, but we just love their attitude. Confident, not cocky; totally fun trio that we are excited to feature on the Main Stage. Check below for the official version.

Dance Battle Booked for Best of the East Bay Party

by Joel Lively
Fri, Jul 16, 2010 at 2:12 PM

A bit of an update on a previous post from the eLerts party blog. A few weeks back we announced a dance exhibition to be featured at the Best of the East Bay Party. After more planning with the crew who will be facilitating the dance portion - YAKfilms - we thought it would be interesting to go into a little more depth with them and what they're about. They are partnering with thePEOPLE, another great local group committed to nurturing the creative forces alive in the East Bay. Together we know that YAKfilms and thePEOPLE will make our All Styles Dance Battle one of the highlights of the summer.

Band Spotlight #13: Cheetahs on the Moon

by Joel Lively
Wed, Jul 14, 2010 at 11:07 AM

This week's spotlight features some true entertainers. Sporting spandex, fishnets and fuzzy cat ears, the Cheetahs on the Moon bring a fun stage performance with their catchy, glam pop. The first tune of theirs I found when looking into the group was an amazing cover of Def Leppard's "Pour Some Sugar On Me"; it was such a blast that I had to keep listening, and I'm glad I did. The official Cheetahs story follows below. Pro-tip: they really are from the moon.
