Inside OFF: the Old Friends Festival

Steve Horowitz, Pamela Z, Steve Adams, Dan Plonsey, and Marc Weinstein join host Derk Richardson to talk about the fertile and vibrant creative music scene that thrived in such venues as Beanbender's and Olive Oil's in the '90s. And they'll play music and preview what's in store as the Berkeley Arts Festival 2011 presents the Old Friends Festival, Dec. 9 & 10, with Ralphy Carney & Randy Odell, Pluto (the Lost Planet), Gino Robair's Improvcore Orchestra 3000, Pamela Z, Dan Plonsey's New Monsters meet the Manufacturing of Humidifiers, and ROVA Saxophone Quartet plays for Glenn Spearman. Is it possible to be nostalgic for the avant-garde? Tune in and find out.
