The Golden Bear, 3 p.m., call for cover
Sacramento, CA 95816
Although local bands Lite Brite and Prieta have paired themselves at many shows in the area, this St. Patrick’s Day event is something different entirely. Rather than playing the downtown grid’s regular venues, this show is an all-day affair starting at (gasp) 3 p.m. and ending whenever its stumbling patrons can find their way home. The Golden Bear is known for packing in loads of people into its small square footage, but I expect with the addition of live bands (rather than a deejay, as is the norm), the place will be a madhouse. Breathalyzers optional. 2326 K Street, http://litebriteband.com.
