Brass, blues and barber battles
Saturday, August 18 and Sunday, August 19, various times and locations
It’s a contentious weekend in Sacramento, and we’re upping the ante: There are three separate events that pit contestants against each other, and we’re pitting those events against each other. Choose from the Brass Band Battle at Harlow’s, the Blues Band Battle at Miller Park or the Norcal Barber Battle 3 at Country Club Lanes. Are you in the mood to see if the Element Brass Band can out-trombone MJ’s Brass Boppers? Would you rather discover the king of the blues? Or do you simply prefer to see barbers duke it out on the canvas of the human head? Barber, blues or brass—which battle will win your vote? Brass: 2708 J Street, harlows.com; Blues: 2701 Marina View Drive; Barber: 2600 Watt Avenue.
