“Oakland Nights…Live” Late Night Talk Show | Oakland
“Oakland Nights…Live” no longer takes place as of January 2015.
What is “Oakland Nights…Live“? Why it is Oakland’s very own low-budget monthly late night talk show.
It’s half Johnny Carson, half Pee-Wee’s Playhouse, and all Oakland. They’ve had marine biologists, talks with Oakland public school teachers, Star Trek: TNG re-rnactments, call-in relationship advice, live interviews with astrophysicist from the South Pole, and more.
Filled with Oakland trivia, highlights on local small businesses, spotlights on amazing non-profits – it is a microscope that looks in on all the little wonders across the Oakland Bay Area.
Please note, the event can get very crowded. This event is very popular and often fills up and they have to turn people away. So either show up very early, or risk being turned away at the door.
May 11, 2013 Oakland Nights Live are taking you to court and they will put the criminal justice system on trial.
Added bonuses: The ON…L potluck returns this month. Bring foods and drinks to share. And they are a part of the International Home Theater Festival.
