It’s a cloudy Oakland evening as the first of the twelve hundred-strong fans begin to form a serpentine line extending around a dimly lit building just outside of Jack London Square.
They chatter in the crisp spring air—some excited, discussing the matches planned for the evening with pride, nipping clandestinely at concealed containers; others apprehensive, having only heard of the madness that was about to ensue third-hand, awkwardly avoiding eye contact with their Tinder date and trying not to wonder aloud, “What have I gotten myself into?”

The Five / Everything Is Already Something

Anthony & Allison of The San Francisco Theater Pub Team decided to visit The Accidental Phenomenon this past Friday.

This week, we’re doing something a little different. Allison and I are eschewing our usual formats to periodically take you on theatergoing adventures, with liquor. For our inaugural article, we decided to head out to the Oakland Metro for the “Accidental Phenomenon” known as HOODSLAM. A Pro-wrestling show that makes itself unique by a self-awareness, performance art approach and a remarkable bond with their fans. There are also three bars inside the venue, an ideal location.

Read their full, hazy recollections:
