Danny Secretion isn’t only just a stalwart of the Sacramento punk rock scene, he’s also a pretty swell guy. So swell, in fact, that he’s once again throwing what is sure to be an epic, five-day birthday bash that will not only rock your socks (if you’re wearing socks), but also benefit the American Cancer Society. This year, you’ll be able to wish Danny a happy birthday and hoist a giant middle finger to cancer at five venues in the Sacramento area: Wednesday, Nov. 15 will be hosted by The Powerhouse Pub (614 Sutter St., Folsom) and will feature performances by The Nickel Slots, California Riot Act and others. Head down to The Press Club (2030 P St., Sacramento) for The Ghost Town Rebellion, a comedy set by Submerge’s own Robert Berry and more on Nov. 16. Kevin Seconds, Slattern V (featuring members of Mr. T Experience and Groovie Ghoulies) and others will usher in a night of punk rock goodness at Old Ironsides (1901 10th St., Sacramento) on Nov. 17. Cafe Colonial and The Colony (3520 Stockton Blvd., Sacramento) will host an all-ages show featuring Kill the Precedent, The Danny Secretion Band and more on Nov. 18. Finally, on Nov. 19 at Blue Lamp (1400 Alhambra Blvd., Sacramento) you can get down with Sparks Across Darkness, Hobo Johnson, Ode to Saturday and more. Another great feature of all these shows is that you’ll be able to attend each one for a sliding scale of $5–$20, so you can have a great time for a great cause whether or not you have a lot of disposable cash.
