If paintings and pub crawls aren’t enough
Here are a few ways to squeeze in some rump shakin’ on Second Saturday while also getting the biggest bang for your buck. Save the extra cash for a rainy day. Or a hooker. Same thing.
The New Humans: Because let’s face it, you can never really get enough Korg. 6 p.m. No cover. Cuffs Urban Apparel, 2523 J Street, Suite 101; (916) 443-2881.
The Shivas: Immediately upon entry, you’ll be swept with so much delightful angst, you will swear you’ve transformed into John Cusack’s character in High Fidelity (minus the hot ex-girlfriends). 7 p.m. No cover. R5 Records, 2500 16th Street; (916) 441-2500.
Rip Wavez: A mythical sort of creature with the voice of Santigold, the melodies of an Atari and the body of Mark Mothersbaugh with a vagina. 7 p.m. No cover. Atelier, 1617 16th Street; (916) 442-1800.
The Pollination Vectors: These guys are as sweet as the candy coating on Advil and would be the poster boys of Benadryl if heartbreak were histamine. 7 p.m. $8. The Refuge, 1723 L Street; (916) 764-5598.
Coolfield: Maybe you’re still pissed off you couldn’t afford Coldplay tickets. Here’s the next best thing. 9 p.m. $6. Luna’s Café & Juice Bar, 1414 16th Street; (916) 441-3931.
