Wed, Oct 14, CrookOne
Shady Lady Saloon, 10 p.m., no cover
Sacramento, CA 95816
Last week, Deftones’ Frank Delgado, also part of DecibelDevils, kicked off Straight, No Chaser, deejay CrookOne and fellow DecibelDevils’ new night at R Street Corridor hot spot Shady Lady Saloon. The event’s promo poster—a cool retro-meets-Mingus yellow flier designed by Laura Edmisten at Asbestos Press—says the tunes will skew jazz, fusion and Afrobeat. And what a concept: a deejay night that doesn’t placate to Top 40, electro, dubstep, house or trance. Instead, be ready for the likes of Antibalas and, well, more Charles Mingus, perhaps. Every Wednesday night at the Shady. 1409 R Street, http://blog.decibeldevils.com.
