Aftershock: Local Band Love

Day 2 started earlier than my first day at Sacramento’s Aftershock Festival, on account of some well-known NorCal bands playing on the Coors Light sponsored stage around noon. FallRise and Burn Halo were my must see acts for the morning.  

I was just in time to catch Fallrise perform my favorite song, “Life of Fools”, a frequent on Sacramento radio station 98ROCK. The vocalist of Fallrise, Sammy Karlin, was an animal on the microphone, like always, ripping through guttural vocals and transferring seamlessly into a smooth rock voice to hit the top notes of the final chorus. They were very “clean-dirty” sounding.  I cheered with the sizeable crowd, proud and excited of the incredible talent that Sacramento produced.

Cemetery Adventures for Children (3rd Grade and younger)

Cemetery Adventures for Children (3rd Grade and younger)

Bring your kids to this fun Cemetery Tour on Saturday, September, 20 at 10:00 a.m.

Do you have a child who is interested in the cemetery but would rather see bugs than burial records? Perhaps they'd like to take a peek into a mausoleum, learn about the animals that make their home here or hear a short tale about the exciting days of old. If so, this tour is for them. Specifically designed for children third grade and younger, this tour is more of an informal stroll to introduce kids to the many wonders the cemetery has to offer.

The cemetery is located at 1000 Broadway, Sacramento. Free parking is available in the lot at 10th & Broadway, across the street from the 10th Street entrance. Tours are free; however, donations are appreciated and benefit cemetery preservation. For more information, call 916-448-0811 or 916-264-7839.
 

Sacramento man faces second arrest following Nevada motel raid


SACRAMENTO - A Sacramento man taken into custody last week on drug charges faces a second arrest stemming from the same raid on a motel he owns in the Nevada desert.

Raghvendra "Raj" Singh, 52, posted $50,000 bail early Thursday, 12 hours after being picked up at his midtown Sacramento fourplex on a felony fugitive warrant out of Mineral County, Nevada.

A tip from a confidential informant led to a Sept. 2 raid on the Roadrunner Motel in the tiny community of Schurz, where authorities seized what they said was a half-million dollars' worth of marijuana plants and processed marijuana.

Mineral County property records show Singh purchased the motel last year for $105,000.

Mineral County Sheriff Stewart Handte sought the original arrest warrant after a phone conversation with Singh convinced him that Singh was directing the drug operation at the motel.

Aftershock: A Love Story for 19,000 Rock and Metal Fans

Discovery Park, Sacramento - The heat was stifling and the dust was enough to make any contact-wearer’s eyes flood. Dirt caked the ripped jean vests and sweaty faces of the crowd; regardless of the drought driven conditions, over 19,000 people flocked to Sacramento’s Discovery Park this weekend to thrash, mosh, and headbang to genre and decade-spanning rock.

I made my way to my first show of Saturday: Pepper. It was a classic Sacramento Summer day. The heat accompanying the blend of rock and reggae, with that wonderful ground-shaking bass in full effect and felt full-force from even the very back of the crowd.
