Let's See Gilberto Gil Live in Oakland - Yay!

I got my tickets and cannot wait for the concert.

Any suggestions on where to meet before the show to have a drink together? I will do some research on this and welcome your suggestions.

To buy your tickets online:

Or you can just stop by at the Paramount's box office and buy it without fees.

From SF Jazz website:

From musical revolutionary to international pop star to beloved statesman, Gilberto Gil has lived a life worthy of a Hollywood thriller. As a founding member of Brazil’s Tropicália movement, Gil and fellow Bahians Caetano Veloso and Gal Costa radically reinvented Brazilian popular music in the mid-60s by combining Beatlesque psychedelia, art rock and Brazil’s northeastern roots rhythms. Since returning to Brazil from his London exile in the early 1970s, Gil has held center stage as a charismatic performer, songwriter and interpreter of the music of Bob Marley. With several dozen standards to his credit, he has been interpreted by just about every major Brazilian artist of the past four decades. In recent years Gil once again found inspiration in the joyful, upbeat accordiondriven forró style of music and dance, starting with his soundtrack to the award-winning 2000 film Me You Them. After serving as Brazil’s Minister of Culture from[masked], he went on to explore classics by forró heroes Luiz Gonzaga and Jackson do Pandeiro on his latest album, Fé Na Festa– Ao Vivo. Expect a party — and expect to dig deeply into Brazil’s musical heritage with one of the country’s major cultural icons.

    Oi pessoal,
    Let's meet at the bar in the main lobby of the Paramount Theater. There are three bars in the Theater. After 100 phone calls I was able to speak with someone there who recommended meeting at the main lobby bar. Doors open at 6:30pm. I will be there at 6:30. My cell in case you need to reach me:[masked]-8180. Até lá!

    How about this bar:
    It is behind the theater, a 2-minute walk according to Google Groups. Yelp says it is good for groups and not loud. Does anyone know if the theater has a bar? Meeting there would mean not worrying about how long it will take to get in the theater (line) after our drinks.

    Oi pessoal, we can meet before the show at Cafe Madrid: 2001 Broadway St, Oakland, CA 94620. It is two doors from the Theater. I've never been there, but we can't go wrong with a glass of wine and good pre-show conversation :) Concert is at 7:30. What do you say we meet at 6:15pm?
