INTERNATIONAL FREAKOUT A GOGO TURNS 8!!!
Here we are: 8 years later and still freaking out with our wax platters from around the globe. In early 2009, we started off in the dusty DIY warehouses of West Oakland with a few speakers, a DJ setup and a solid crew with the intent on doing a party our way - underground and free from the establishment. Although we no longer have a tap on those independent venues, we are very thankful for the space we've been given at the Make Out Room. The entire MOR staff has always been incredibly supportive and accommodating, and we would like to thank them whole heartedly.
For this special occasion, we have invited five guest DJs to join us for a jam-packed night to celebrate.

It's a very special (and just announced) Mawkish Twaddle, on the eve of Not My President's Day.

Sunshine pop, indie rock, French pop, blues-free psych, soul, etc., etc. You know what to expect.
