Sights & Sounds is your weekly guide to the Bay Area arts scene. The eclectic electronic musician Maya Songbird, who'll be playing this Friday at the Octopus Literary Salon in Oakland, told KALW’s Ninna Gaensler-Debs about three fantastic arts events happening around the Bay this week.

On today’s Your Call, we’ll have a conversation about the recent two-day strike by the UC Student-Workers Union. Earlier this month, students hit the picket line accusing UC administrators of unfair labor practices and intimidation, including threats to take away visas for grad student protesters and fire those who strike. What’s next for these grad students and what are their demands? Join the conversation on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.
