The Honky Tonk all vinyl country music party with Golden Gram, Handsome Hawk and Prozack Turner
1st Floor Saloon
NOW EVERY FIRST AND THIRD THURSDAYS !!
The nightlife scene in Oakland was outraged when The Honky Tonk party first burst onto the scene at The Legionnaire Saloon. Prozack Turner, with his jeans and long hair, and Golden Gram, with his earring and prison record, played all vinyl outlaw country and classics and proved that you can get where you want without following anyone else's lead. They tear down the boundaries of country, rock and Americana. Most places didn't know what to do with them, but Oakland did. Today, The Honky Tonk is one of the most popular classic country music destinations in the bay area. Golden Gram and Prozack went out and recruited a local legend that some believed to be urban myth, Handsome Hawk Valentine. After witnessing his vinyl hayrides at various dark, seedy, scary Oakland dives and Narcotics Anonymous meetings, they extended an offer to come on board. They are all drinking buddies as well as dj buddies. It's now one of the most imitated relationships in all of the country music dj world. Prozack Turner makes no secret of the many personal problems he's faced through the years, while Golden Gram has had to be bailed out of jail on occasion to dj at The Honky Tonk. No one knows where Hawk holes up when he ain't raising a ruckus. Come down and enjoy a glass of bourbon and a beer and listen to songwriting at its best, the way it was meant to be heard, on vinyl. Seeing an episode of the Grand Ole Opry, A Sergio Leone film, or Hee Haw on the big screen only adds to the authentic atmosphere! So dust off them cowboy boots and head on down!
$7 gets you a Miller High Life and Fireball shot
It's a damn good time, ya'll!
Wax Poetic is a Hip Hop nightlife series, brought to you by Pep Love and Hieroglyphics, for the hardcore hip hop heads. Hieroglyphics is the same collective that just brought you Hiero Day a couple of weeks ago. With Wax Poetic we intend to keep the vibe and momentum going by highlighting new non commercial hip hop music through the creativity of the DJ. Oakland, Ca is fast becoming a hub for arts and culture. We believe that this is the perfect time and place to present something unique that might actually do some lasting good and put us at the spearhead of a burgeoning movement. There is so much dope new hip hop music being released on Bandcamp everyday that there is no longer any need for DJ's to spin "Golden Era" sets. Commercial hip hop on the radio is, for the most part, so divorced from the culture that when it's played it does more to degrade the integrity of the culture than it does to contribute. Its time for hip hop to begin again. Its time for us to take back whats ours and stop having ourselves dictated to by the so called "powers that be". This is a party for the non conformist. This is a party for the passionate. This is a party for the empowered minority who love hip hop enough to be interested in discovering the new shit. Come discover new hip hop with us. Dance and have a great time as some of the Wax Poetic DJ's experiment with blending Afro Beat, Funk Breaks and Beats into this ALL NEW UNDERGROUND HIP HOP mix format. This Friday and every 3rd Friday of the month from now on is Wax Poetic night in Oakland.
