About this blog

All The City Lights is a music blog based in Oakland, Calif.

I hereby promise to do my best to justify the existence of the estimated 100 billionth music blog plopped down into the overcrowded ocean of wannabe and out-of-work music critics floating around the interwebs.

In addition to plenty of over-enthusiastic gushing and obligatory list-making, visitors ideally will find some engaging writing and useful information. As a recent transplant to the Bay Area and a firm believer in supporting local music, I hope you’ll join me in exploring what the city has to offer.

Eventually, you’ll be able to find out more information about the author here.

Oh, and about that title

    Speaking as a Bay Area native who has fully embraced post-Katrina New Orleans, it’s good to see people who can appreciate things without having to be painfully hip about it. Oakland is a good town – I liked living there better than in San Fran in some respects – and I hope you enjoy exploring it. Your banner photo makes me homesick for my apartment there (out of the left frame, down off Lakeshore). Take care, good luck in your job search, Kelly Nicholas

    Thanks for stopping by, Kelly. It’s very gratifying when random Internet strangers stumble upon this blog and have nice things to say. It inspires me to keep going. (P.S. – My apartment’s just out of the left frame, too.)

    Drifted here after doing a Google search for Decemberists lyrics. Kept reading more posts and really enjoyed your site. I’ll be catching you in my feed reader from now on.
