The Upside of Second Saturday
Sac News & Review has a nice writeup on the upside of Second Saturday. Amid talk of the trouble that’s plagued the “Art Walk” in the past few weeks, it’s good to know that some venues are staying true to the original intent…
One of Second Saturday’s charms is that normal businesses can moonlight as live-music venues. So it goes at Barber’s Shop Automotive (1116 18th Street), a regular art-walk spot known for uptempo rock ’n’ roll and good family-friendly vibes. This month, Pronouns (www.myspace.com/pronounsband), an instrumental-rock troupe with a penchant for addictive, math-rock-esque guitar noodling; the Speed of Sound in Seawater (www.myspace.com/thespeedofsoundinseawater); and Brassaï (www.myspace.com/brassaimusic) will kick the night off early, at 5:30 p.m. And, as most Second Saturday events, this gig is free and all-ages.
We look forward to bringing more of the same good times when Second Saturday returns to Barber’s in April 2011.
