<<< THIS GUY will be performing

Fantastic Negrito, the modern-blues breakout sensation that won NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert Contest, will be bringing his powerful sound to Sactown. This nor-cal native has persevered through unspeakable challenges, resulting in blood-pumping passion and authenticity sewn into his music. Get a taste of his sound and his story, then get yourself over to the Crocker for an epic live performance!

Fishnets, corsets…and sizzles

We won’t blame you for blushing when you witness imaginative performances by Sizzling Sirens Burlesque Experience, Sacramento’s burlesque and variety arts performance group.

Visit the ‘Green Fairy’

Speaking of refreshing sippers, there’ll be no shortage of spirits at Neo-Crocker. Your hosts are busting out the good stuff with a full-on Absinthe Bar! Playfully known as the “green fairy,” this elixer is magically potent, and GREEN. Oh, and did we mention this is a 21+ adults-only event? Drink up and DON’T DRIVE.

You’ve probably seen City of Trees Brass Band performing jazz on the streets of Downtown Sac, blowing their horns and singing “When the Saints Go Marching In.” This lively troupe of horn players knows how to bring the funk with their eclectic mix of New Orleans sound crossed with West Coast funk and pop. Once they get going, good luck not dancing!

Have you ever been inside the Crocker Art ballroom?! It’s an elegant space as is, but on the night of 10.10.15 it will be transformed into a dazzling piano lounge for guests to experience a supersensory, mind-blowing evening. Live performers, men in bowties and and ladies in sky-high stilettos will dance around you throughout the night as you partake in a modern celebration of all things art and creativity. If nothing else, this will be some of the best people-watching you’ve had!

What are you waiting for? Tickets are a STEAL!

Your $40-member or $55-nonmember ticket includes a drink ticket and all the above-mentioned entertainment and glamour. You can easily drop that amount on a couple Saturday night cocktails, so why not spend it on a RAD culture party packed with incredible, creative experiences? Don’t wait, this shindig will sell out!
