Mus’ be a blues hangover
Slim Harpo once cut a song titled “Blues Hangover,” but the Sacramento Heritage Festival is giving the people one last chance to directly experience one. It so happens that Sunday, March 18, comes immediately after St. Paddy’s, which this year falls on a Saturday. Commencing at 2 p.m. at the Sacramento Horsemen’s Club (west off Watt Avenue between I-80 and Business 80), you can listen while Walter “Wolfman” Washington & the Roadmasters from N’Awlins, Jimmy Johnson from Chicago and the W.D. Gospel Singers from right here in River City cut through your personal fog. There’ll be ’cue, too—SHF’s previous barbecue featured links, chicken and tri-tip, plus down-home favorites such as smoked neck bones, ham hocks, black-eyed peas, greens and cornbread, along with a watch-out-for-low-flying-aircraft dessert of sweet potato pie with honey-roasted peanuts and Hennessy whipped cream (yowzuh!). Full bar, too. Admission is $10; the show’s a benefit for an education-related charity. You in?
