Questlove makes fourth appearance in the Bay for Life is Living Festival

September 23, 2011

Don’t want to make assumptions here, but I think he might like us over here. Questo of the Roots-o will be in Oakland for the 2011 installment of the Live is Living festival, October 8, 2011 at De Fremery Park, 11am–5pm; admission is free of charge. After the afternoon sound session, he’ll reprise his San Fran appearance from August, spinning a special DJ set that night across the bridge at Public Works. DJs Sake One, Apollo, and Mark Divita will be on the bill’s support, spinning to 3:00 AM in two rooms once again. Pre-sale discounted tickets are available via EventBrite. Check the flyer after the jump.
