June 13 marks the first Summer Second Saturday - and that means the first THIS Midtown block party.
THIS Midtown organizer, Clay Nutting, released the lineup for the free concert series to CapRadio Music this morning and the acts are:
+ Luxembourger electronic artist, Cherokee
+ Sacramento's own moody-baroque rockers Exquisite Corps
+ Mr. Erik James, singer-songwriter, beatmaker, producer from Sacramento
+ Sacramento-based hiphop producer DJ Epik
THIS takes place on Second Saturdays from June to September on the 20th Street block between J and K in Midtown. The concert series was started two years ago; organizers hoped the event would give the Second Saturday art a boost by providing a fun, free, central event.
Casino Gold, Kauf, SunMonks, Trails and Ways, Pat Lok, 8th Grader, and Joseph In The Well are slotted to play upcoming THIS block parties.
The folks behind THIS also put together TBD Fest in West Sacramento, which takes place September 18-20 this year and features Tears for Frears, Purity Ring, Tycho, Ratatat and many more.
