When Oakland went "Brokeland"
For his latest novel, "Telegraph Avenue," Oakland resident Michael Chabon created a store, Brokeland Records, inspired by the local shops he'd actually hung out in, scouring the LP bins: Berigan's, DBA Brown, Groove Yard. For a book-release party, Diesel: A Bookstore, one of Oakland best indie shops, transformed itself into a Brokeland pop-up, complete with LPs on sale, curated by former record store maven Berigan Taylor. Year-round, Diesel, in the Rockridge neighborhood, is a great place to browse, buy, and attend readings.
