Last night’s party was located in an [ Oakland factory]( py/ previously used by Sunshine Biscuits to make Cheez-It snack crackers. Odd bits of the factory were converted haphazardly and somehow gloriously into residences. The back “porch” gave access to towering smoke stacks and abandoned outdoor mixing machinery… a truly concentrated and surreal glimpse into the dark [energy]( Altitude.mp3) that pervades the lives of bay area denizens.
