Sideshow Downtown Oakland

Sideshow Downtown Oakland
At 1:15 am I woke to a to the noise of a crowd outside my front window. To my amazement, the ruckus was a sideshow at the corner of West Grand and Telegraph Ave., less than 200 yards from my front door. Blocking all lanes of traffic, the spectators created a protective layer of parked cars and head down to the action on foot. After a few minutes the whole event is ended by the sound of automatic weapons fire (audible only.) Certainly it was somewhat unnerving, at the same time it was exciting and awesome (by definition). A little taste of Oaklands subculture. #WhereAreTheParents? (haha) #21stCenturyWildWest. (for reals y’all)
