Issue: December 06, 2018

This week's issue of SN&R is headlined by an important exclusive by news editor Raheem F. Hosseini, who reviewed 70-plus hours of video released by the Sacramento Police Department and reached seven key conclusions about what the footage shows.

In News, Scott Thomas Anderson writes about the Sacramento Tenants Union, which is bringing the fight against greedy landlords to suburbs and unincorporated areas outside the city of Sacramento. And Howard Hardee points to research showing that because of climate change, more land in California is emitting carbon dioxide instead of absorbing it.

In Arts, Aaron Carnes gives us an advance look at Sacramento is Burning, a new photographic magazine on the city's punk music scene, and the man behind it, Cam Evans. In Music, managing editor Mozes Zarate tells us about a post-punk band called Pylon Reenactment Society that is a reboot of Pylon, which opened for U2 back in the day. For theater buffs and Jane Austen fans, we have a review of Miss Bennet: Christmas at Pemberley at Capital Stage. In Drink, find out everything you need to know about Pisco sours, a Peruvian cocktail.

Finally, there's an invitation from me to submit essays, plus a call to action for Democrats from Jeff vonKaenel, SN&R's president and CEO.

As always, thanks for reading. Feel free to click the links below, but don't forget to pick up a print version of the newspaper for exclusive event picks, columns and cartoons.
