What is a Beast Crawl you ask? Curated by the likes of Tourettes Without Regrets, Quiet Lightning, Bawdy Storytelling, Berkeley Poetry Slam and more, this third annual all night event is a kind of complete your own adventure story for literary open mics and readings, with three separate legs each offering dozens of different options spread out across uptown Oakland to choose from and a final leg comprising the after parties. Last year attracted over a thousand participants, and this year promised to be bigger and better than ever, a fantastic opportunity to sample the immense diversity of talent in the East Bay literary scene.
