upcoming Oakland events

There aren't a lot of events happening in Oakland this week that I know about, but there are some of the regular events. I confirmed that the Art Murmur is happening this Friday, but haven't heard yet about the tour at the Paramount. No special mention on the website, so I assume it's on.

What interesting events are happening in Oakland this week? Let me know in the comments!

Art Murmur - Friday, January 6, 6pm-9pm. It's the First Friday of the new year, so it's time for the Art Murmur. The galleries are installing new displays, so come check out the latest artwork in Oakland. (free)

tour the Paramount - Saturday, January 7, 10AM. Tour the historic Paramount Theatre, an Art Deco gem of Oakland and get to see behind the scenes. ($5)

Saturday Stroll - Saturday, January 7, 1-5PM. The mellower daytime cousin of the Art Murmur, the Saturday Stroll features many of the same galleries. (free)

Blog Launch Party @ Oakollectiv - Saturday, January 7, 7-10pm. Come celebrate a new blog with the fashion collective, Oakollectiv. Champagne toast to the new blog at 7:30pm, music by Ge-ology and DJ Yaddos. (free)

Blow Out Sale at Montclair Plaza Collective - Sunday, January 8, 9am-2pm. The initial stage is wrapping up, so they're shutting down for a while to figure out the next stage, a sustainable food market. Come get great local, hand-made items at a discount! (free)

Plus the usual events:
Piedmont Avenue Art Walk (3rd Thursday)
Art Murmur (1st Friday)
Saturday Art Stroll (Saturdays)
