The Bee Ball with Countdown Quartet, DJ Jenilla Ice

When: Sat., May 18, 8 p.m. 2013

The Bee Ball isn't only a concert; it's the staple annual fundraiser for The Beehive Collective, a fundraising organization that aggregates a small yearly tithing from its members and funnels it to causes in need. The prom-like party will feature a court of local folks of note for whom you can vote, a late-night dance party amped by DJ Jenilla Ice and a photo booth. It's also a chance to see the irrepressible Countdown Quartet, the uproarious jazz outfit that officially broke up years ago but reunites often enough to serve delight by the song and the solo at events such as this. Their appearance—and the Bee Ball's fifth anniversary, for that matter—seems even more important following the recent news that the Berkeley Cafe, which has fostered area institutions including The Countdown since 1980, will shutter its large music room this summer. —Grayson Currin
