A note from Beats Antique:
“Bay Area Beats fam-
We’ve heard your concerns, and are moving our Oakland show at the Fox Theater to April 9, 2022. These are crazy, unpredictable times, and we hope pushing this show back will give you the time you need to assess the state of the world and make an informed decision for the health of you and your loved ones.
This was such a hard decision to make. We’re bursting at the seams to play to our hometown crowd again, but we promise it will be worth it! Get ready for plenty of new music, a brand new show and some BIG surprises coming up. See you soon”

You can’t know Beats Antique until you’ve been a part of its journey, and experienced the act as an entity with a life of its own. A stage show that demands more music; music that needs costumes, ships and masks and shadow dances; an audience that comes for art, and takes away stories to feed their imagination.
When Beats Antique first drew breath, there was no pressure to become anything. The first album was just Zoe, David, and Tommy’s one-off experimental project for entertainment executive Miles Copeland, when Zoe performed with his Bellydance Superstars. From that creative freedom, a family formed, and in a good family each member wears many hats. Tommy steering percussion, piano, and music production. Zoe producing music, choosing themes and commanding a circus of travelling set designs, creating costuming, and, of course, dancing like nothing you’ve ever seen. David as the multi-instrumentalist, captain of banjo, songwriting, and production. These diverse skills are the muscle of the monster, how the creature moves through them, making itself real.
Some music evolved organically from the decades of experience each collaborator brings to the project. Other pieces were written for the show. In deeply vulnerable interplay, every song is woven into a tapestry of danced and drummed story. Commitment to the full performance art form is how Beats Antique fuses musical worlds, pulling on global sounds for experiments on the fringes of cinematic cabaret, informed by electronic mash-ups and inspirations who have joined them on the journey such as Les Claypool, Bassnectar, Alam Khan, The Glitch Mob, and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band.
Each album and stage show has built upon the last, with highlights such as: emergence from the bellydance and bass underground in the San Francisco Bay; performing to a massive crowd at Red Rocks Amphitheater; Thievery Corporation and their management discovering Beats Antique one fateful night at Burning Man; artist friends painting set pieces, or donning masks for the finale; performing in Egypt on the day some said the world would end; and playing a hometown show at The Fox on the night Occupy Oakland was evicted and merged with their fans to light bonfires in the street and leap over the flames.
Beats Antique is lifted in each step by loyal fans who are included in their definition of chosen family. Whether they’ve been music producers or appreciators, acrobats, illustrators, or students of Zoe’s, the multigenerational, welcoming faces in the crowd are the fire that keeps Beats Antique warm, and ready to explore new depths for the sake of these many muses. They aim for a show anyone can enjoy, a circus that feeds the spirit.
In this place, where they can teach and create and converse with their creation like it’s a dragon come to life full of riddles and blustery demands, Beats Antique is weaving a unique story.
The moons of 2019 will rise on The Grand Bizarre, Beats Antique’s next musical and theatrical endeavor. It’s time to explore what is strange through the large culture collider that is their stage. The world is moving at a frantic pace, and to keep up, there’s nowhere to go but deep inside The Grand Bizarre. Open the door of perception and discover an expansive, rusty, nuclear truth — the only way out is into the strange. The only thing weirder than this world, is what’s happening in your head. What’s the difference, you might wonder? As soon as you join this freakshow, such confusion won’t matter. Find an event near you at BeatsAntique.com
