Circo Anto, The Corner Laughers, Karen Finlay, The Bay Area Brit

Please join us in the heart of Oakland at The Naming Gallery for a musical circus of word lovers and world travelers. Super spring early show out front, unfettered by electric amplification, cover charges and expectations.

Antonette Goroch
Antonette Goroch (Oakland, CA/Bologna, Italy) is a seasoned traveler and musician, with two decades of recordings and writings to her credit. 

Karen Finlay
Karen Finlay is a Bay Area author with aspirations to become the next Judy Blume or Dorothy Parker (or alternately, a skydiver). A graduate of Mills College, she has an MFA in Creative Writing and was a two-time recipient of The Marion Boess Haworth Prize, as well as The Ardella Mills Scholarship. 

The Corner Laughers
Clever wordplay, magical melodies and heartbreaking harmonies. Front and center are heavenly vocals, jangly guitars, delicate ukes, a thunderous rhythm section and crystalline production.

The Bay Area Brit
