Event Details

Canceled – “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.

Sick of NPR podcasts? Of TED Talks? Of boring people talking about boring things? Eavesdropping on people on the bus? Need a few more tirades in you life? Then come to Oakland Nights…Live’s second annual Oakland Rants on July 13, 2013.

They present audience members speaking about the topics that they know a lot about and you know less about. They condensed their knowledge into five minute power-points filled with blasts of information.

Topics include:

  • “The Windows Project” by Harrell Fletcher
  • “Biohacking” by Craig Rouskey
  • “Canadian Geese: Take Back the Lake” by David Linder
  • Performance by Janey Smith
  • “Math – It’s Not That Boring” by Michael Metzger
  • “Julia Child and Vine are the Best” by Daphny David
  • “Arts Talk II: This Time It’s Personal” by Barbara Jean Walsh
  • “Today’s News” by Ashleyanne Krigbaum
  • ??? by Noah M

Plus, the Prize Zone, Elevator photo booth, Time Travel summer, Cookies (possibly free?) and, as always, the house band: The Hats.
