“Oakland Nights…Live” Late Night Talk Show | Oakland
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, all Oakland. We’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.
>> Event can get very crowded: Please note this event is very popular and often fills up and has to turn people away. So either show up very early, or risk getting 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.
