Patrick Newson sweats wine by day and bleeds ink by night. He believes that ink makes words and prints, and sweat gives them density. A graduate of the University of Oregon and the California College of the Arts, he lives in Oakland and wishes it would rain.

Da Lamb makes loner pop play fusion queer art rock. They are from S. California and now live in Portland, OR. Looking forward from here, they are excited.


There is ample street parking, but just to make it easy, there is an O'Reilly Auto Parts/Walgreens on the corner of Fruitvale and Foothill with a huge parking lot. Here's a Google Map link:'Reilly+Auto+Parts/@37.789393,-122.233008,14z/data=!4m5!1m2!2m1!1so+reilly+auto+parts+near+Foothill+Blvd,+Oakland,+CA!3m1!1s0x0000000000000000:0xa74c9fbc2152bd68

Nomadic Press should show up on that map as well. We are just in between Austin and Rutherford on Foothill.

Hope to see you soon!
