If this sounds appealing, you’ll want to show up at the New Parish in Oakland tomorrow night (January 03), where they’ll be playing. Doors open at 8pm, and music starts about 9pm.

Throughout most of its 86 years, Los Angeles' premier tennis tournament attracted the biggest names in the game. But over the years, stars stopped coming, and so did fans.
