If you haven't heard of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, you've been living in a cave. After numerous festival circuits and headlining sets, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs are planning a highly anticipated 2-night takeover at The Fox Theater in Oakland on Wednesday and Thursday nights.
Each week our good friends over at The Owl Mag share all the goodies they get in their inbox (think free MP3s, new videos and the general low-down on Bay Area artists) in an effort to spread the local music gospel.

I'm a person that never feels like they can get enough of summer. Knowing that the season is fleeting makes me greedily eat as many peaches as possible.

Hirokazu Kore-eda may be the most incisive cinematic chronicler of the modern Japanese family since master moviemaker Yasujiro Ozu. His first feature, Maborosi (1995), centers on a widow coping with the suicide of her husband, while his acclaimed 2004 film, Nobody Knows, revolved around the hardscrabble plight of four children, abandoned by their mother and forced to scrape out an existence on their own.
