K. Flay

Looking for the authentic voice

What: Kristine Flaherty, known in her entertaining persona as K. Flay, found music to be a way to express what mattered to her. Her days at Stanford set her on a path of self-inspection and bouncy wordplay. The San Francisco-based rapper often works alone, but won't mind sharing her talents with a crowd.

Where: Assembly, 1000 K St., Sacramento

Cost: $12

Information: (916) 832-4751 or (877) 987-6487


Family activity

Hop, leap or jump for bunny's sake

Where, oh where, might a rabbit locate food or a safe place to nest? In this weekend of bunny-focus, learn all about real rabbits that live among us.

When: 10:30 a.m.-noon, Saturday

Where: Effie Yeaw Nature Center, 2850 San Lorenzo Way, Carmichael

The Crocker

Tour the museum

April foolishness

Blending fact with fiction

What: No foolin', there may be no better way to celebrate April 1 than by keeping it local.

Bring your own dose of skepticism, as the event promises to "contain wild fabrications."
