04. In The Bay We Dance A Lil Different
Anyone who grew up in the Bay Area knows that the nightlife scene is pretty interesting to say the least. Growing up in San Jose, we didn't have many options as far as big clubs or events, and apparently Oakland didn't either. For a few years, Greek parties took over the Bay Area party scene, and when that came to a halt there was a monopoly between 1-2 promoters who held down ALL the functions in the Bay (shoutout to Demetrius from Location415, where Amina & Shayla first met). Now, years later, that's all changed. There are a bunch of nightlife movements happening in the Bay and we got the chance to speak to the founders of two of the biggest - Shayla Bang of So Oakland, and Amina & Jesse Brooks of TrapxArt. Not only do these brands give you parties and provide a space to function, they also give you a platform to promote your art, your talent, and facilitate a safe space for you to do it in.
