Brainwash weekend culture extravaganza alliance

By awoodall
Friday, July 25th, 2008 at 2:56 pm in Night Owl, Oakland Museum, Oakland nightlife.

Here is a video shot to accompany the Night Owl story about De Lauer’s.
As for this weekend, tonight begins the 14th annual Brainwash drive, bike and walk-in movie festival at the Mandela Village Arts Center, 1357 5th St. (the groovy shack behind the West Oakland BART station). The movies are short, the start time is 9 p.m. and admission costs $9. Fo mo info visit www.brainwash.com.
Over at the EastSide Arts Alliance tonight a film slected by Oakland Sin Fronteras starts 7 p.m. The event is free. I missed a whole bunch of cool events at the center including Hip-hop karoake Wednesday  and Holla Back open mic series on Thursdays.  
Heads up: Next Friday is First Friday, which means Art Murmur and the Oakland Museum’s monthly culture extravaganza including a screening of Paperback Dreams, the story of two local bookstores-Cody’s and Kepler’s-and their struggle to survive. Timely, you think?
