Fri, Aug 13, Blame Betty
Fire Escape Bar and Grill, 8 p.m., $8
Citrus Heights, CA 95610
This show won’t be a typical Blame Betty show. Hell, it won’t even be a typical Fire Escape show. The normal hard-rocking punk music that exudes from the band and reverberates off the venue walls will be replaced by favorite ’80s songs. Blame Betty will host Rock for WEAVE to benefit Sacramento’s Women Escaping a Violent Environment. The event will feature nine Sacramento bands, including the Common Men, Broken Glass, Autumn Sky, Puke & Spit and more. Clothing from the 1980s is optional, but highly encouraged—as are those flailing ’80s dance moves. 7431 Madison Avenue in Citrus Heights; www.myspace.com/blamebetty.
