Club Dread Soundclash In Oakland Oct 19

Club Dread, the San Francisco Bay Area's first ever and longest running weekly reggae club night, has, in recent years, turned its attention to promoting quality sound clash events. The 9th Annual Club Dread Soundclash will take place at Vinyl at The Venue in Oakland, CA. and features three sound crews going head-to-head with musical selections.

Hosted by LA sound master DJ JFX and local radio favorite Robert Rankin from KKUP's Solid Foundation program, the clash features Bay Area stalwart TNT Sound Station with selector Dougie, a veteran of local clashes whose sound box contains many dubplates featuring artists that are either no longer recording or no longer with us.

Also on the bill are Super Gold Sound (Jamaica/Atlanta/Texas) and King Shiloh (New York). At stake are a trophy, cash and bragging rights – the crowd will determine the winner. Expect big tunes and big chat from these experienced sound vets.
