As a new Sacramentan, I understand and accept that I don’t know much about this place. I can navigate the local Craigslist, sure. But when it comes to the geography of this place and cool landmarks.. ah, the Capitol is pretty neat, right?
These past few days I have been helping out the folks at Scout Living (you know, that super amazing new antique collective in Midtown, duh..) set up their vendors space for Launch 2011. A one night event, happening tonight, that is a culmination of live music, artists, vendors, and.. FURNITURE!
Launch is a multi-disciplinary audio/visual festival that connects people with art, music, fashion, and design. Launch recognizes and seeks to highlight the cultural overlaps between creative industry and aims to create a cross-discipline experience that allows people to connect with the artists, their work, and the performances.
A surprising “oasis of rad” in the somewhat underwhelming Del Paso Boulevard row of long-forgotten 1950’s design, The Greens looks straight out of Dwell magazine.
So if you’re not already heading there, drop what you’re doing, withdraw $20-smackaroos from the ATM, and get down to Hot Italian where Launch will be providing a shuttle to The Greens Hotel for tonight’s events. Or get thee to the lightrail, or call up your designated driver.. and put on your fun-time shoes.
