Quieter Night in Oakland Last Night

Shoutout to all the talents who took the Main Stage to compete in our second edition of Oakland's Got Talent! We had singers, dancers, magicians, musicians, and MORE! Our crowd was certainly entertained the entire night! (1st Place: Mikeila Janae, 2nd Place: Ysenia, 3rd Place: A Tribe Called Groove)

Additionally, thank you to Anika Evans and Marcus Dyson for gracing our stage and getting us in the holiday season! They closed out the last half hour of our night with their own individual original songs and a rockin' duet of This Christmas!

With our November event just being a couple days after Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead), an alter was set up on our footprint. Our main stage made sure you were THANKFUL for coming to November's First Friday! Dos Four and Gambizi started our Friday night party with their Hip-Hop and Latin Fusion Music that had our attendees groovin! A comment from our Instagram, "I challenge anyone to listen to @dosfour and NOT want to dance"... everyone certainly lost that challenge! Sorry, not sorry.Invited back to our Main Stage was Cielo Contreras, the second place winner from August's Oakland's Got Talent! She performed covers of Tennessee Whiskey by Clark Stapleton and Maria Maria by Santana adding ad libs dedicated to Oakland which we definitely appreciated. What a great way to promote our Talent Show for December!To close out or night was the alternative soul ensemble, Noah and the Arkiteks. New to First Fridays, they set our souls on fire with a combination of covers and original songs like "Soul Fire". Thank you to all our performers and make sure to check them out on socials if you enjoyed their vibe!

HOUSTON -- Ace Justin Verlander had just wrapped up another strong start and was in the dugout in the fifth inning when Yordan Alvarez launched his third spectacular home run of the night for the Houston Astros.

Alvarez homered in his first three at-bats, Verlander threw five hitless innings in his return from the injured list and the Astros clinched a postseason berth with a 5-0 win over the Oakland Athletics on Friday night.

Alvarez, tied for second in the AL with a career-high 36 home runs, had solo shots off Adrian Martinez in the first, third and fifth innings. He capped his big night with a single in the seventh to tie his career high with four hits.

Verlander plunked Ramon Laureano with one out in the second. He didn't allow another baserunner until walking Seth Brown with two outs in the fourth. He then sat down the next four batters he faced to end his night.

"You take Alvarez out of the lineup and the line's a lot different," Oakland manager Mark Kotsay said. "Yordan is a guy that I referred to before the season started as a possible MVP candidate. And and he showed why tonight."

Oakland residents have had enough of the loud, illegal fireworks keeping neighborhoods up late at night.\n","link":"https:\/\/\/news\/local\/east-bay\/residents-want-an-end-to-illegal-late-night-fireworks-in-oakland\/2313854\/","date":"June 22, 2020","subtitle":"","sponsor":"","sst_source_id":"","linkout":"","linkout_url":"","syndicated":false,"nationalized":false,"linkout_excerpt_url":"","originating_market":"","content_tag":"fourth-of-julyoakland","section":"news","subsection":"local","subsubsection":"east-bay","all_sections":"newslocaleast-bay","sponsored":false,"contentid":"10042313854","localid":"1:4:2313854","localid_combined":"10042313854","contenttitle":"Residents Want to End Illegal, Late-Night Fireworks in Oakland","contenttype":"article lead video embed ","syndicatedid":"1:4:2313854","byline_authors":"Melissa Colorado","sourceid":"","pageName":"local:detail content page","collections":"East Bay, Home Top Stories, Local","uri":"\/news\/local\/east-bay\/residents-want-an-end-to-illegal-late-night-fireworks-in-oakland\/2313854\/","uri_length":7,"section_name":"news","detail_section_name":"local","detail_subsection_name":"east-bay","this_contenttype":"article lead video embed ","template":"article - general","this_request_type":"singular","video_collections":["Local","On Air"]},"browserTitle":"%s - NBC Bay Area","pageType":"article","locale":"en_US","video":"bitrate":50000,"playerType":"articleplayer","fwSSID":"ots_kntv_news_local_east-bay","fwSSID_liveNoPre":"ots_live_nopreroll","fwNetworkID":"382114","fwManager":"network":"_live","siteKey":"","config":"volume":100,"htmlPreRoll":true,"htmlOmniture":false,"tremorFlashKey":"52289094b872c","tremorFlashSyndKey":"5239b2feaee2e","tremorHTMLKey":"5239c44e7e9e1","tremorHTMLSyndKey":"5239c4849009","htmlOmniture":false,"pdkPath":"\/assets\/pdk587","plugins":["akamaiHD","FreeWheel","comscore","captions","capcon","liveCaptions","streamsense","chartbeat"],"adobe":"rsid":"nbcuotsdivisiontotal","link_internal_filters":"javascript:,,,,,","weather":"weather_url":"https:\/\/\/weather\/","alerts_url":"https:\/\/\/weather\/severe-weather-alerts\/","closings_url":"https:\/\/\/weather\/school-closings\/","sharethrough_codes":["nP3EagztciAhUuFBbE24BQsi"],"param_zipcode":"","appleStoreUrl":"https:\/\/\/KnCvVUkv8AOS_eQ7Ga4OnbmEqdAzHrteUpaQzsBej-1MaZFtqw2CnIohk1-bbacssZM3w_h4d7V0jpESIqhTqw","androidStoreUrl":"https:\/\/\/Z0tnML0xYESdcURuOpFxt15KLoEjTszcQMJsV6-2VnHFDLXitVHB6BlL95nuoNYfD4DN9cA_K7isGKodpGGvS5Ty0pI06PRXtwhV8HR4lZw_HoIIpUIjX79nNXg2llu0U9URwPCGGgbckgWPPtOEDw","facebookAppId":"75829892837"};.hero-background:empty background-image: linear-gradient(to bottom, rgba(0,0,0,0.55) 0%,rgba(0,0,0,0) 20%); "@context":"http:\/\/","@type":"NewsArticle","mainEntityOfPage":"https:\/\/\/news\/local\/east-bay\/residents-want-an-end-to-illegal-late-night-fireworks-in-oakland\/2313854\/","headline":"Residents Want to End Illegal, Late-Night Fireworks in Oakland","datePublished":"2020-06-22T16:43:43","dateModified":"2020-06-22T17:49:19","description":"Oakland residents have had enough of the loud, illegal fireworks keeping neighborhoods up late at night.","speakable":"@type":"SpeakableSpecification","cssSelector":[".article-headline",".article-subtitle"],"keywords":"Fourth of July, Oakland","publisher":"@type":"Organization","name":"NBC Bay Area","logo":"@type":"ImageObject","height":60,"url":"https:\/\/\/wp-content\/uploads\/2022\/05\/amp_square_kntv.png","width":160,"image":"@type":"ImageObject","height":675,"url":"https:\/\/\/2019\/09\/0622-OaklandFireworks.jpeg?quality=85&strip=all&resize=1200%2C675","width":1200,"video":"@type":"VideoObject","contentUrl":"https:\/\/\/news\/local\/east-bay\/residents-want-an-end-to-illegal-late-night-fireworks-in-oakland\/2313854\/","description":"Oakland residents have had enough of the loud, illegal fireworks keeping neighborhoods up late at night.","duration":"PT02M03S","name":"Residents Want to End Illegal, Late-Night Fireworks in Oakland","thumbnailUrl":"https:\/\/\/2019\/09\/0622-OaklandFireworks.jpeg?quality=85&strip=all&resize=1200%2C675","uploadDate":"2020-06-22T16:43:43","author":"@type":"Person","name":"Melissa Colorado"var dfpAdUnits = ;var googletag = googletag ;googletag.cmd = googletag.cmd [];(function() var gads = document.createElement('script');gads.async = true;gads.type = 'text/javascript';var useSSL = 'https:' == document.location.protocol;gads.src = (useSSL ?
