Oakland Freedom Jazz Society

Every Monday night, Studio Grand, a nonprofit multiuse space, transforms into a live showcase for genre-bending, experimental music known as the Oakland Freedom Jazz Society. Bringing in a wide variety of acts loosely defined as "free jazz," the Oakland Freedom Jazz Society, founded in 2012, has become a vibrant local hub for far-out sonic exploration. It attracts improvisers, experimenters, composers, and plain ol' fans of new music, avant-garde jazz, experimental noise, and more and shines as a musical laboratory setting. Pop in to catch local and up-and-coming musicians, seasoned veterans, and national/international performers.
