The streets of Laurel District belong to the musicians during the Summer Solstice Music Festival, according to some new hotshot writer for Oakland Local

I’ve started freelancing for local nonprofit news site Oakland Local, and my first story for them went live on the site today. It’s just a basic festival preview, but it is music-related (and informative!), so it gets a shout-out and a link:

The Laurel Village Association’s Summer Solstice Music Festival should be a fun opportunity to experience a wide range of music for free. On the schedule for the Saturday event is everything from a ukulele trio to a 12-year-old rapper to a one-man “weirdopop” project.
