Be Live About It (featuring Vernon Keeve III, Jesse Prado, David Bernbaum, Azuah, and in-house band Oakland Future Trio)

  • Woods Bar & Brewery 1701 Telegraph Avenue Oakland, CA 94612 (map)

Join us at the second, tighter-than-ever Be Live About It variety show with co-hosts Alexandra Naughton and J. K. Fowler of Nomadic Press. Think Saturday Night Live meets The Tonight Show meets All That meets that weird thing your younger cousin does in their basement with a tape recorder. We took your wonderful feedback from our inaugural show in September and put it into action!

A little over one hour of programming featuring an in-house instrumental band, Oakland Future Trio, physical performance, poetry, comedy, and a sit-down interview where the co-hosts dive into the process and personality of one of the features on that particular night. 

It's all being recorded and published on a podcast, That Lit Podcast, for the sake of posterity and general web fame. 

Oh, and the venue? None other than the fabulous Woods Bar & Brewery on 17th and Telegraph in Uptown Oakland. We'll be up on the second floor where all of their beer is made, and there will be no shortage of tasty libations down below in the bar, including not only their beer but a fine selection of wines, as well. 


comedy: Vernon Keeve III

physical performance: David Bernbaum

poetry: Jesse Prado 

music: Azuah

Cash and credit card donations will be kindly called for throughout the night and proceeds will go toward the writers and artists performing as well as the Be Live About It show. 

They will take place every fourth Tuesday, depending on how the first few go, so come out and support your growing East Bay community of writers and artists!
