“Dirty Cello” Rocks Oakland’s Brooklyn Basin

Friday, May 21, 2021 - 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm | Cost: $20
Rocky's Market Brooklyn Basin | 288 9th Avenue Oakland, CA 94606


The hard rockin’ blues and bluegrass band Dirty Cello performs at the bay area’s most exciting newish venue, the Brooklyn Basin (in Oakland!) Join Dirty Cello for a safe and crazy fun night of blues, bluegrass and rock, all led by bay area’s most exciting cross-over cellist, Rebecca Roudman.
The Dirty Cello band has kept their skills sharp with safe, but weird performances during Covid including shows at the Oakland Zoo, apple orchards, and a nudist resort. Come hear their crazy stories, and hear cello like you’ve never heard before!
From Jimi Hendrix to BB King, and from Yo Yo Ma to Bill Monroe, the Dirty Cello shows are all about energy and fun. Their first time at the new Brooklyn Basin in Oakland involves safe, socially-distant seating, an outdoor venue that’s shielded from the wind, and amazing food and drink available from Rocky’s Market Brooklyn Basin Restaurant.
