Sunday night started out with a line out the door to get into the Complex in Oakland, where local artists came together to perform for one of the traveling Coast 2 Coast musician contests. The environment was fairly intimate but the energy was quite high. A small venue where all ages were welcomed, sat a panel of three judges to choose between a variety of performers to send to the final round of the competition. Winners travel to Miami, Florida during a large conference event in 2018, to face off for the winning title and $50K.
