Kinetic Steam Works Roll Out!

When: Sat., Nov. 12, 12-10 p.m. 2011

There's nothing quite like a party to blow off a little steam -- and at Kinetic Steam Works' annual Roll Out! celebration, steam-blowing is actually the order of the evening. The party put on by the West Oakland-based group of artists, fabricators, and engineers will showcase scores of steam-powered mechanical entertainment, including a nine-ton wood-fired steam engine and steam-powered abominable snow cones. That's in addition to copious amounts of food, libations, and live music by bands like the old-timey acoustic-folk Sour Mash Hug Band and the Southern-soul inspired Lord Loves a Working Man. At Kinetic Steam Works (2525 Mandela Parkway, Oakland) on Saturday, Nov. 12. Noon-10 p.m., $10-$100. 510-692-1498 or

Price: $10-$100; free for kids under 12
