The Oakland Tribune reported yesterday that framed photographs of late Your Black Muslim Bakery leader Yusuf Ali Bey that once hung in the now infamous hot-fish-sandwich-dispensary will go up for auction March 25 at 11 a.m. Bey died of cancer in 2003, while facing charges of raping underage girls. His two successors met rapid and untimely deaths, and the third was arrested under suspicious of vandalizing two West Oakland liquor stores. The bakery was raided Aug. 3 by police for connections to several crimes, including the killing of Oakland Post editor Chauncey Bailey, who was investigating the activities of the bakery.

  • Arcade Fire at Shoreline
    Arcade Fire opened their US tour at Shoreline Amphitheater to a full house who was there in support of their album "Reflector," which was released last fall. Dan Deacon opened the show to a happily surprised early audience and got the crowd actively dancing and warmed up. DEVO was originally on the bill to support Arcade Fire but a kayak accident last week had sidelined lead singer Mark Mothersbaugh and the duration of the west coast leg of the tour. Win Butler did a homage to DEVO by performing Uncontrollable Urge.
