25th Street Block Party

When: Sat., Sept. 21, 1 p.m. 2013

The Art Beat Foundation and Mission Creek Oakland (in collaboration with the Express) are teaming up to celebrate the East Bay’s growing music scene with an afternoon of free live music. Head over to the 25th Street Collective (477 25th St., Oakland) to hear a diverse lineup of bands, including VIR, a local post-punk noise-pop trio; Yip Deceiver, an all-analog synth-pop duo and self-described “antidote to the laptop jockeys” from Athens, Georgia that’s about to release its first full-length album; San Francisco-based Super Natural, an urban folk-rock band; Playboy School, an electronic rock duo from Los Angeles; and Oakland’s own Waiting Room, an indie-rock three piece. There will also be DJs, food trucks, and other galleries open on the block.
