Let's take a trip back into history, long ago, when MTV actually showed music videos.

Or rather, let's take a trip to the New Parkway in Oakland, where they’re bringing back Kurt Loder vibes with a music video extravaganza—the fourth annual OutofFocus Video Music Fest, with music videos, animations and shorts produced by local artists. (Last year’s fest included work from local bands like Shannon and the Clams, the Younger Lovers, and Carletta Sue Kay.)

To top it off, at the end of the evening, the audience has the chance to select the 2018 Audience Choice Award. It's basically the Oakland VMAs.

The Fourth Annual OutofFocus Music Video Fest gets underway Wednesday, May 30, at the New Parkway in Oakland. Details here.
