Here at Submerge, it’s our job to keep you in the loop about fun, creative stuff happening in and around Sacramento. These days there’s so much going on around our growing city, it’s easy to miss stuff, so here’s another one of our quick, easy-to-read lists that includes five of our must-dos in March. If you’ve got an event or something newsworthy to get on our radar, feel free to email us to: firstname.lastname@example.org. And remember, folks: Read. Learn. Do rad things.
On March 1 the popular local co-working space The Urban Hive (1601 Alhambra Blvd.) is hosting their first-ever “living art show” with The Urban Jungle. Check out (and maybe even take home) work from local artists and designers who will be displaying living, hanging wall art, beautiful arrangements, botanical artwork and other sculptures. Live DJ, plus food and drinks. Free, all ages welcome. Runs from 6–9 p.m.
For one night only, Verizon is presenting Artists and Engineers: Sacramento on March 9 at Hacker Lab (2533 R St.), where you can see six new, original art projects created through unique collaborations between—you guessed it—local artists and local engineers. What happens when art and tech collide? Come see. The event is free and runs from 5:30–9 p.m.
WTF Wednesdays at Punch Line (2100 Arden Way) on March 13 will feature comedian Mars Parker of the infamous HOF crew, who are known for throwing raging parties and fun, creative events around town. Parker often brings comics up on stage from the region and beyond. Can you say, “compliment-only rap battle?” Yeah, it’s as amazing as it sounds. 18-plus, $10 cover, 9 p.m.
Burly Beverages (2014 Del Paso Blvd.) is hosting the fifth installment of their Burly Backyard BBQ series on March 16. This free, all-ages event will feature live tunes from some of Sacramento’s best, including The Gold Souls, Be Brave Bold Robot, Spacewalker, Sunday School and more. Live art, activities for kids, food and drinks available—a very chill way to spend a Saturday in Sacramento. Runs from 2–8 p.m.
If you haven’t yet made it out to Claimstake Brewing Company (11366 Monier Park Pl., Rancho Cordova), we highly suggest checking out their Kith and Kin Music Festival on March 24. This Sunday shindig will run from 11 a.m.–8 p.m. and will feature live music from Austin Lucas, Michael Dean Damron, Crover Anderson, The Turkey Buzzards, The Three to Get, Tre Burt and others. Tickets for adults are $20 (which includes a live printed, fest exclusive T-shirt), while ages 5–13 will be $5 (no T-shirt included). Four years and under get in free. Knock back a few delish pints of local beer and take in some awesome Americana and folk artists.
