Oakland First Fridays has been rained out twice in a row! We’re seriously bummed and can’t wait till April 5.

But, just because we don’t have a roof over Telegraph doesn’t mean there’s not a lot to do. Here are some ideas:

INTERRUPTION SHOW at the All-Out Comedy Theater
Standup comedian Dalia Malek (BBC Radio, Edinburgh Fringe Festival, SF Sketchfest) and rotating co-hosts interrupt stand-up comedians mid-performance to ask burning questions, dig into backstories, and find out what happened next. 2525 Telegraph, doors open at 8:30pm, show at 9:00pm, $5 online/$8 door.

KONO’s beloved dive bar hosts this sexy esoteric revue every Friday night at 10pm, right in our footprint: 2330 Telegraph.

HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DEMONS Opening Reception at Classic Cars West
A solo exhibition by video artist Laneya Billingsley aka BILLYOCEAN. Classic Cars is a great space with (yes) classic cars and classic pinball too, just a half block down 26th (toward Broadway).

STORYTELLING WITH ADONAL FOYLE & TEEN POETRY OPEN MIC at Chapter 510 and the Department of Make Believe
At 6pm former Golden State Warrior Adonal Foyle will read from his children’s book series “Too Tall Foyle.” At 7 there will be a teen poetry open mic hosted by Oakland’s Vice Youth Poet Laureate Samuel Getachew, with a special performance by Isha Clarke of Destiny Arts.
