Fri., Sept. 13, the Other Brittany
Shine, 8 p.m., $5
Just in case it isn't clear, this isn't that Britney, it's the Other Brittany. And the Other Brittany couldn't have less in common with the more famous Britney, as in Britney Spears. For starters, Sacramento's the Other Brittany isn't a person, but a band. Sure, the lead singer of the band is named Brittany (last name McKinney), but she's only one piece of the puzzle. The remaining members of the quartet create an eclectic blend of alt-rock, folk and soul, with a deep, heavy groove. The Other Brittany brings the passion and honesty of a coffee-shop folk singer to the music, but with the intensity of a full rock band. 1400 E Street, www.theotherbrittany.com.
