Ep 131: "Sous les Pavés, la Plage"

Galore, whose debut album Galore is out this Friday on Rocks in Your Head Records (bandcamp), crafts spacious gems with multiple voices and unexpected hooks that move my feet and bloom so positive in my mind.

Support local media today:

  • Galore asks you to help support Black media in the Bay Area by supporting The Bay View News, since 1976 "a communications network for the Black community worldwide";
  • The Oaklandside is a month-old nonprofit news outlet led by some of our best local reporters, launched in the middle of (waves hand) all this, they've been chronicling the fight in the streets and in the halls of government.

Link of the week is this timeline for Oakland's budget process, from September 2020 through June 2021. Good to think about how a campaign could be built around these dates to, ahem, reduce spending in certain parts of the budget:

  • Sept 2020: Baseline Development
  • Jan-Mar 2021: Community Surveys
  • Feb 1: Five Year Forecast
  • Mar 20: Special Budget Workshop
  • Apr 1: Statement of Council Member Priorities
  • May 1: Proposed Policy Budget Released
  • May 1-June 10: Townhall Meetings
  • May 15: Proposed Budget
  • Jun 1: City Council deliberations
  • Jun 17: City Council Pres Proposed Budget
  • Jun 27: City Council Budget Amendments
  • Jun 30: Council Budget Adoption

Episode title is a slogan coined during radical protests in France in 1968, in English "Beneath the concrete, the beach."
