Off the Rails with Station to Station: The Last Hurrah

Memoirs from the tracks on Doug Aitken’s Station to Station tour. Originally published via Art Nerd San Francisco.

Sunday, September 28th


The site of our Oakland Happening was the 16th Street Station, a disused depot built in 1912. Graffiti nerds among us couldn’t take enough pictures.

Oakland was the last of our Olaf Breuning Smoke Performances. We all wanted to get up in it.

Oakland was also the last of our Station to Station Happenings. As Dan Deacon brought the house down, we had a group hug. “See you in the future.” Station to Station…signing off.
