This Saturday will likely be the first Second Saturday event I've attended in a long time, and the last I will attend for a while. I haven't actually made an evening of it in about two years, though I have popped into a gallery here and there to check out friends' work, go to sellout buyout, listen to a band, shoot the breeze.
In the time since I stopped going, it seems to have really flourished. When I first moved to Sacramento, I could count on the galleries in the Weave/Michaelangelo's vicinity to be doing interesting things, but not much else. I am officially out of the loop, but it seems like just about everyone is doing 2nd Saturday things. I even know people hosting events.
