To do: Run in the Berkeley Half Marathon, see one — or two — Cal student theater productions, listen to a "mass-up" of choral music, or explore an exhibit about the African American community in Berkeley.
Afropop, fair housing, Joni Mitchell's birthday, exquisite corpse for the kids and Berkeleyside's own Evening Ideas Fests.
The Bay Area premiere of a Sam Shepard play, chocolate and coffee to support a landmarked Berkeley building, cleaning up our open spaces, and more this weekend in Berkeley.
Music from singer songwriters, blues guitarist and world fusion, plus the first-ever city Open House and an original play perfectly timed for Hispanic Heritage Month.
It's clearly festival weekend: annual Pow Wow, Grateful Day, Emergency Prep and, ahem, a running music festival. Plus a rare piano/gamelan concerto.
And now for something complete different… could be a theme for the weekend. Voting rights, bronze pours, 50 years of People's Park, small presses and contemporary jazz.
Spoiled for musical choice this weekend, ranging from bluesy folk, to jazz to a contemporary multidisciplinary premiere. Plus there's cheesemaking and a plant sale.
'Old time' and sacred music, Berkeley filmmakers, poetry and the spirit of Sylvia Plath, all this weekend.
Queer dance and electric cars. This weekend's events run the gamut.
There's plenty of choice if you're looking for weekend activities.
The weekend offers a wealth of musical choice – Brazilian jazz, Oakland Latinx – plus Chocolate & Chalk Art, a celebration of the Free Clinic's 50th, and photos from San Quentin at BAMPFA.
Music and science combine for quite a weekend: blues and salsa, chemistry and meteors are our weekend picks.
