Dear SN&R reader!
Think about how many uniquely Sacramento places, faces and things
have gone by the wayside over the past year alone, disappearing at an
increasingly hasty click. (Well, don't think too hard, lest ye
unleash the proverbial eye faucet.) In this week's feature story,
SN&R staff has compiled a very "Retromento" bucket list, but with a
twist: 99 things to do, see, or experience in the greater Sacto area
before you're gone.
In news this week, Cosmo Garvin follows up on the state of the city
manager: Will John Shirey actually take the job? Also this week: The
future of solar power in deserts and on rooftops; community gardens
in the central city; broken pipes underground; and why you should
smog your whip.
From the arts scene: Kreayshawn's now the hottest rapper, male or
female, getting love from MTV. Her roots are in NorCal, specifically
Oakland, but her creation story is still a bit of a mystery. Bay
Area-based music scribe Rachel Swan debunks the Kreayshawn myths.
Also this week: Captain American gets five friggin' stars (!!!) from
Jim Lane; artist Nathan Cordero chats about cutting up wood; and Ed
Murrieta visits with Dale Maharidge.
It’s a “rapumentary” that really works.
