During our tour, we’ve played to almost 1,000 people, paused for the BART to go by, chased after dogs running under the stage, shared our playing space with a Yak, performed for at least three princesses, paraded with kids from 2 to 82, and been gifted more cake than anyone could possibly eat. The FluxWagon has both gained and lost a couple of deedles (ask us for the story on that one, as well as what “deedles” are), drawn delighted crowds wherever we’ve unfolded her, hosted a concert, and traveled more miles than we can count.

We hope you’ll join us for Saturday’s performance, and please stay in touch — we won’t be performing soon, but you never know where we might appear next!

The Best Beloved Band – June 9 at the Flight Deck Opening Festival

Greetings Beloveds!

We have a special treat in store for you — we’ll be performing songs from O Best Beloved at the Flight Deck Opening Festival Variety Show at 8pm on Monday, June 9.

The Flight Deck is a brand-new performing arts space in Downtown Oakland that’s being created by our friends at Ragged Wing Ensemble. It’s a pretty fantastic endeavor. The Flight Deck includes a 99-seat black box theater, a rehearsal studio, a gallery, and co-working space. Next door is Township, a new farm-to-table restaurant featuring local art and a mezzanine for small performances.

We hope to see you at the Variety Show on June 9! We’re thrilled to be hosted by the Knights of Revery, and performing alongside acts from foolsFURY, Emma Jaster, and Chick Flick, among others. You can buy advance tickets online through June 6.
