Best known as the frontman for acclaimed Britpop act Pulp (Common People, Razzmatazz), musician, actor, and author Jarvis Cocker has been making music for two-thirds of his life, journeying from being the quintessential outsider to being one of the most recognized and cherished figures in British music.

Founded in 1986, the Oakland Interfaith Gospel Choir was born out of a gospel music workshop led by the exuberant Terrance Kelly at Living Jazz’s Jazz Camp West. It became an independent nonprofit organization in 1991. Since then, the award-winning Choir’s exquisite harmonies and stirring gospel repertoire have led to performances with a wide variety of esteemed groups, such as Joshua Nelson, the Prince of Kosher Gospel; the Five Blind Boys of Alabama; and the Duke Ellington Orchestra. The Choir also appears on Grammy-winning albums by Linda Ronstadt, MC Hammer, Tramaine Hawkins, and others.

Doors open 8:00 | Show starts 8:30
Tickets $32 Advance | $37 Day of show (plus fees)
https://www.ticketfly.com/purchase/event/1755987

Half Pint’s diminutive stature belies not only his vocal capabilities but also camouflages his huge on-stage presence, often described as no less than explosive and dynamic. Born Lindon Roberts, but affectionately called Half Pint, he is a product of the West Kingston enclave of Rose Lane, a community in adjacent proximity to Trenchtown which has produced the likes of Bob Marley, Dennis Brown, Peter Tosh, Lee “Scratch” Perry, Toots Hibbert, and a host of other international Reggae superstars.


SATURDAY, OCT. 13
HONUS HONUS

Doors open 8:30 | Show starts 9:00
Tickets $24 Advance | $28 Day of show (plus fees)
https://www.ticketfly.com/purchase/event/1757267

Out of the multi-instrumental experimental pop experience of Man Man rises Honus Honus, aka front man Ryan Kattner, on the road as a solo artist with his latest project, Use Your Delusion. Self described as ‘dystopian pop’, Honus’ summery avant-synth-rock is upbeat and carefree even when the lyrics may run against the grain into darker territory. Inspired collaborators on the album range from comedian Jon Daly, actress Mary Elizabeth Winstead, drummer Joe Plummer (Cold War Kids, Modest Mouse) and Oakland’s own Shannon and the Clams and the process of Honus’ early forays on tour are documented in the film Use Your Delusion, also screening at MVFF41. When Honus is in the house, he says: “ultimately I just want to have the most engaging and fun live show possible. That’s not much to ask, right?” Not too much to ask at all.
