May MidMo cover shoot

MidMo May cover shoot video
Yesterday OMF, Liv Moe, Scott Duncan, manly cover model Jose, and I convened in Old Sac for our cover shoot. I have a newfound love of Old Sac which I’ll be sharing with you in the May issue of MidMo. I’m eating old timey candy as I write this!

Sacramento Living Library: Remembering KZAP

For Sacramentans of a certain age range, there was only ONE radio station that mattered: 98.5 KZAP.
From its freeform beginnings to its hard rock heyday, KZAP was Sacramento’s soundtrack for nearly 25 years. Join well known radio personalities Bob Hughson, Bob Keller, Dennis Newhall and Robert Williams for a look back at the valley’s much beloved rock station.  And a bit of advice: show up early if you want a seat, I think this one is gonna be big.

Don’t Forget Record Store Day! April 16

Dal and Nich over at Phono Select are BIG fans of Record Store Day (well, duh, they opened a Record Store) so it’s no surprise that they’ll be going all out for this year’s event. They’ve got plenty of stuff in the works for Saturday, including an in store set from Sea Of Bees at noon. If you’re a music junkie, stop by!

Incoming! Bottle Shock at the California State Library with Darrell Corti

On 4/20 (DUDE!) the California State Library will present Bottle Shock, a movie about how the upstart California wine industry started to became a contender to that of France in 1976. It also features Alan Rickman cruising around NorCal in a Gremlin if you don’t care about wine.

The California State Library’s Food For Thought series is really cool, there are snacks and an expert gives a presentation before the movie and answers questions after. In this instance, the presentation will be given by local hero Darrell Corti. It’s all free, but there is a donation bucket in the library, please be generous. You must have reservations, so email soon if you plan on attending.
