The last Max Savage Show packed the Starline Social Club, with people on stage battling over which Bay Area city is the best and Express weed expert David Downs answering marijuana questions while sharing a joint with audience members. The live talk show series that places local journalists, musicians, and chefs in absurd situations is back for another round on February 4 at 8 p.m., once again at Starline (2236 Martin Luther King Jr. Way, Oakland). This time, the lineup includes Re/code founder and popular tech journalist Kara Swisher as well as Will Bundy and Max Gibson of Oakland’s favorite online culture magazine, Wine & Bowties. Oakland rapper Queens D.Light, local folk act Foxtails Brigade, and singer-songwriter John Vanderslice will be the musical guests, while the cooks from Abura-ya will be there, presumably to talk about their Japanese fried chicken. It’s not exactly clear what else will occur, but it will likely be ridiculous and it definitely won’t be streamed online.
