Race for the Arts!

This year’s race for the arts was a tremendous success and a really good time!

The Sacramento Banjo Band charmed race goers with their toe tappin’ medlies.

Fleet Feet Racing was out in force.

There was this bug guy.

And many triumphant trips over the finish line.

John Yamagata, Ernie Takahashi,and Arnold Utterbach came in so quickly it was like they never left.

Jeri Clinger of Galena Street East Productions came over and introduced herself.

Meanwhile our fearless publisher manned the Midtown Monthly table…


There is some crazy shit going on musically in town this week, and no, I’m not talking about Jessica Simpson at the fair tonight. At Club Pow in the Press Club, there are some guest djs in addition to the superb local Mike C. (he played “lookin’ for love in all the wrong places” last time I saw him), members of !!! are dj’ing and the new band Touchez is playing. And then tomorrow at Harlow’s !!! and Touchez are playing. Buy your tickets today because they tack on five bucks at the door.
