Thurs, March 4, Butterscotch
Sacramento State, 7 p.m., no cover
Sacramento, CA 95819
This event is brought to you by the letters “B,” as in emcee and musician extraordinaire Butterscotch; “R,” as in local emcee Random Abiladeze, arguably the best rhyme maker in town; and the number “3,” as in three Cs for Cap City Culture 4 Elements, who will sponsor this break-dance, emcee, deejay and live-graffiti exhibition. The show doesn’t cost a dime, and when I was in college, all they did was have shitty bands like Save Ferris play to a crowd of 12 dudes wearing checkered Vans, cargo pants and beaters. Yes, times are getting better. 6000 J Street inside the University Ballroom, www.myspace.com/butterscotchmusic.
