The music created is by Alexander Brettin, but Mild High Club is a full-on outfit when live. His music is a bright, lo-fi slur of 70s-inspired psychedelic rock. Instead of creating the sunny radio rock of music's grooviest era, the band takes a different route and makes music that represents the nostalgia of the time. The sound shines with reverb-heavy guitars, and fragile and rhythm-heavy drums. Mild High Club's music creates an entirely new feeling, a study in creating a golden age of thinking through music.

The Nether is both a serpentine crime drama and haunting sci-fi thriller that explores the consequences of living out our private dreams. Directed by Kirk Blackinton and written by Jennifer Haley, The Nether is a virtual wonderland that provides total sensory immersion. Just log in, choose an identity and indulge your every desire. But when a young detective uncovers a disturbing brand of entertainment, she triggers an interrogation into the darkest corners of the imagination. Winner of the 2012 Susan Smith Blackburn Prize, and seven 2013 L.A. Ovation Awards including Best New Play, this is a gripping, new crime drama. “As a parable for where we’re headed on that big old highway in the digital sky, THE NETHER exerts a viselike grip, while taking you down avenues of thought you probably haven’t traveled yet.” -The New York Times “Dark, disturbing, and extraordinary… a cold, hard look at human behaviour.” -The Huffington Post Note: This play has intense adult themes. Recommended for mature audiences. [less-]

Sacramento calls itself the "Farm to Fork Capital," but none of its restaurants will be written up in a Michelin Guide for the foreseeable future as its not included in any of the four California regions that get one of their own.

But that's okay, because there are a few NorCal natives who left town to work at Michelin-starred restaurants and are now coming back home with their Top Chef skills and creds, and opening up their own places here.

There is a major food renaissance occurring in the Sacramento region, and for the first "Food for Thought" event of 2018, three chefs will be playing a big part in making that happen. Come listen to them talk about all things food - their experience, skills, philosophy, favorite dishes and ingredients, their new restaurants, and whether "Michelin" and "Sacramento" belong in the same sentence. Panelists include: - Brad Cecchi - a Carmichael native who earned a Michelin star as executive chef at Solbar in Calistoga, and came back here to lead the kitchen at Canon, the East Sacramento restaurant that's just a couple of months old but already killing it - Edward Martinez - a former gang member in Fresno who was spared an 8-year prison term by promising to enroll in a culinary program, then went on to pastry-chef excellence, most recently at the two-star restaurant Lazy Bear in San Francisco, and is bringing his skills to Sacramento at the soon-to-open eateries Beast + Bounty and Milk Money - Scott Ostrander - having a career crisis at age 30, he sold his Sacramento home, backpacked through Europe, then got a job at the three-star restaurant Alinea in Chicago, before returning here to blend Michelin skills with Farm-to-Fork philosophy at Paragary, then the Inn at Park Winters, now his "meaty" catering firm Foundation Fire, and soon at his own place, Origami Asian Grill in East Sacramento Of course there will be food. And drinks. Details about all of those will be coming soon. [less-]

Lots of folks throw around the phrase “let the music do the talking,” but only a few have the fortitude to really do it, to just go out there and play, shunning flash, shrugging off image and reeling in the listener on the strength of the songs alone. Johnny A. is that kind of performer. For the better part of three decades, the Massachusetts-based jazz guitarist and bandleader has proven himself capable of generating heat at venues from working-class bars to international amphitheaters, and every sort of venue in between. And when the house lights are turned up, he’s just as adept at captivating serious students of the six-string with a virtuosity that earned him the rare honor of having his name placed on a signature Gibson guitar.

Dave East is as New York as they come. The Big Apple is known for being a gritty, dark hip-hop mecca and East is born and bred of that scene. His rap career started as a small endeavor on the streets of New York until Nas ended up hearing one of East's early mixtapes. The legendary MC wanted to sign him to Mass Appeal Records immediately. Since the signing, East has come up through the ranks to be one of the most sought-after rappers in the scene today. If East Coast rap is having its renaissance, then Dave East will be one of its ambassadors. [less-]

In fact, Ghostemane's musical trajectory has only recently found the L.A. by way of South Florida rapper. He grew up surrounded by all things metal and was originally a member of a number of metal projects. He has brought that style along with his rap career, which is heavily indebted to black metal traditions. Ghostemane's music is pure, chest-rattling energy as his high-pitched flow often resembles the chaotic screams of the black metal of Norway. It's all very dark, moody and of the current rap scene -- one that is as polarizing as it is infectious. [less-]

Sacramento calls itself the "Farm to Fork Capital," but none of its restaurants will be written up in a Michelin Guide for the foreseeable future as its not included in any of the four California regions that get one of their own.

But that's okay, because there are a few NorCal natives who left town to work at Michelin-starred restaurants and are now coming back home with their Top Chef skills and creds, and opening up their own places here.

There is a major food renaissance occurring in the Sacramento region, and for the first "Food for Thought" event of 2018, three chefs will be playing a big part in making that happen. Come listen to them talk about all things food - their experience, skills, philosophy, favorite dishes and ingredients, their new restaurants, and whether "Michelin" and "Sacramento" belong in the same sentence. Panelists include: - Brad Cecchi - a Carmichael native who earned a Michelin star as executive chef at Solbar in Calistoga, and came back here to lead the kitchen at Canon, the East Sacramento restaurant that's just a couple of months old but already killing it - Edward Martinez - a former gang member in Fresno who was spared an 8-year prison term by promising to enroll in a culinary program, then went on to pastry-chef excellence, most recently at the two-star restaurant Lazy Bear in San Francisco, and is bringing his skills to Sacramento at the soon-to-open eateries Beast + Bounty and Milk Money - Scott Ostrander - having a career crisis at age 30, he sold his Sacramento home, backpacked through Europe, then got a job at the three-star restaurant Alinea in Chicago, before returning here to blend Michelin skills with Farm-to-Fork philosophy at Paragary, then the Inn at Park Winters, now his "meaty" catering firm Foundation Fire, and soon at his own place, Origami Asian Grill in East Sacramento Of course there will be food. And drinks. Details about all of those will be coming soon. [less-]

Lots of folks throw around the phrase “let the music do the talking,” but only a few have the fortitude to really do it, to just go out there and play, shunning flash, shrugging off image and reeling in the listener on the strength of the songs alone. Johnny A. is that kind of performer. For the better part of three decades, the Massachusetts-based jazz guitarist and bandleader has proven himself capable of generating heat at venues from working-class bars to international amphitheaters, and every sort of venue in between. And when the house lights are turned up, he’s just as adept at captivating serious students of the six-string with a virtuosity that earned him the rare honor of having his name placed on a signature Gibson guitar.

Dave East is as New York as they come. The Big Apple is known for being a gritty, dark hip-hop mecca and East is born and bred of that scene. His rap career started as a small endeavor on the streets of New York until Nas ended up hearing one of East's early mixtapes. The legendary MC wanted to sign him to Mass Appeal Records immediately. Since the signing, East has come up through the ranks to be one of the most sought-after rappers in the scene today. If East Coast rap is having its renaissance, then Dave East will be one of its ambassadors. [less-]

They are a family band consisting of brothers Tahir, Courtney Jr., and Stephen along with their father, Courtney Panton, Sr. A first-generation Jamaican-American. Courtney the elder was active in New York's reggae scene before turning his sons on to the music of their island heritage.

In fact, Ghostemane's musical trajectory has only recently found the L.A. by way of South Florida rapper. He grew up surrounded by all things metal and was originally a member of a number of metal projects. He has brought that style along with his rap career, which is heavily indebted to black metal traditions. Ghostemane's music is pure, chest-rattling energy as his high-pitched flow often resembles the chaotic screams of the black metal of Norway. It's all very dark, moody and of the current rap scene -- one that is as polarizing as it is infectious. [less-]
