I loved this issue of the Bohemian (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Degree of Panic,â&#x20AC;? Aug. 19). I read it and laughed so hard and realized that I had it really good going to college. Thank you Santa Rosa Junior College and Dominican University. The article written by Jackie Johansen, â&#x20AC;&#x153;A â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Uselessâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Degreeâ&#x20AC;? had me laughing so hard since I know how she felt. The line â&#x20AC;&#x153;I could make sure that money is never a problem. However, I would rather live humbly, have the time to dip a Madeleine into lime blossom tea and let the taste of it urge my own version of Combray to bubble up from the depths of my beingâ&#x20AC;? is really for some what college is about. I, like Jackie, went to college to study what I am passionate about, creative writing and humanities. When I attended Dominican University, I was taught a new, independent way to think and view the world. This recession is teaching a lot of people who are able to go to college just how lucky they really are. A college education is worth the price since it is not about what one learns in the classroom but what one takes away from it for life.

Thank you for publishing one of the best Marine Life Protection Act articles I have seen to date (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Coastal Conundrum,â&#x20AC;? Aug. 26). The unethical political maneuvering that it took to ensure the 2XA loss has left me quite disgusted with the process. There was open and transparent negotiation until the end when the Blue Ribbon Task Force felt the need to give the high-dollar eco side more of what they were paying for. Then, when it looked like 2XA could still win, the governorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office had to get involved in a bullshit move to invalidate the whole process (but ensure a win for the side that paid for the process). I consider myself an environmentalist first and a fisherman second, but what happened was just wrong.

C74?D1;82>?C8>= Letter-writer Michael Zebulon is dead wrong (Letters, Aug. 26). No â&#x20AC;&#x153;very deep resentmentâ&#x20AC;? of Obama has been building â&#x20AC;&#x153;almost since Inauguration Day,â&#x20AC;? except for the sore losers who voted for McCain. Obama has said repeatedly that if you like your

current insurance, you should be able to keep it. If you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, there should be a â&#x20AC;&#x153;public option.â&#x20AC;? Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a medical insurance plan offered by the federal government, like Medicare, that you can choose as your insurance coverage. The private plans would be required to compete with the federal plan for quality and cost. And that, ladies and gentlemen, is why the private health insurers, the American Medical Association, and the big pharmaceutical companies, are spending millions and millions, and are spreading lies, to defeat this healthcare reform bill. The rabble are roused by hearing such lies as the creation of a â&#x20AC;&#x153;death panelâ&#x20AC;? in the reform bill. The insurers have agreed to accept that part of the plan that would require them to take everyone who applies. The trade-off, however, according to the companies, would be that Obama would sign off on an â&#x20AC;&#x153;individual mandate.â&#x20AC;? That means everyone would be required to buy insuranceâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;quite a bonanza for the insurers. This can only work if we have an affordable and adequate public option, which the insurers are trying so desperately to kill.

Are we to assume that the production is so bad, your reviewer, David Templeton, thought it best not to embarrass the theater and cast? Any comments from the esteemed Mr. Templeton?

David Templeton responds: I do not review shows directed by Holly Vinson, because, as an occasional actor, I have been directed by her in past and hope to be again, I consider her a friend and mentor, and even if I could be objective about her work, reviewing it would open me to negative speculation and accusations of conflict of interest. I do look forward to seeing Oliver, though, as a fan of Ms. Vinsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work.

CWT6[^aX^db6PbCPg Can a tax at the pump rescue California? By Jessica Lussenhop

F

hen 27th District Assemblymember Bill Monning hosted a town hall meeting last month with the Campaign for Sensible Transportation, the table seemed set for a conversation on planes, trains and automobiles and the budget cuts to public transportation. But when Fred Keeley showed up, it became clear that the dialogue on the Golden Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s abysmal budget deal has already left the station. After a budget session that gutted not just public transportation but every service imaginable, the two seemed to be trying to channel frustration into a call for major tax reform.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have to have a tax system which will be able to be passed by the Legislature before the end of this year,â&#x20AC;? Keeley told a sizable crowd. Keeley, a member of the Commission on the 21st Century Economy, gave a brief outline of the package likely to come from the commission, much of which, such as f lattening the income tax, he acknowledges is regressive in nature. But, he said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;it will have the capacity going forward to be able to bake a bigger revenue pie so we can claw our way backâ&#x20AC;? from the hole the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in. One initially startling component is something called a â&#x20AC;&#x153;pollution taxâ&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;gasoline surcharge tax,â&#x20AC;? and it could be headed for a pump near you. It would establish a f loor of $3.50 per gallon for gas in California. Whether the real cost was $2

or $3 a gallon, the price would never fall below $3.50. The difference would f low to state coffers. As the commission prepares to hand off its final set of recommendations to the governor and legislature this month, Keeley says a pollution tax is all but certain to be included. â&#x20AC;&#x153;[Senate President Pro Tem] Darrell Steinberg essentially told me a pollution tax has to be part of the package,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is not a righty / lefty thing. This is a broadly supported concept.â&#x20AC;? The idea comes from Severin Borenstein, director of the University of California Energy Institute and a professor at UC Berkeley who proposed the idea in a white paper last December. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This would take a small step in moving people away from the Ford Expedition and toward & *

Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let the reign of error on healthcare continue!

By R. W. Goatlips, Esq.

â&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve thoroughly read President Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proposed healthcare plan. And by â&#x20AC;&#x153;readâ&#x20AC;? I mean Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve heard what other commentators on AM talk radio have had to say about the various versions floating through Congress. And in these versions there are a lot of devils in the details. Bad devils who look like John Carradine, with curly mustaches and opera capes. All of them from a place called â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hell.â&#x20AC;? Chief among these details is the so-called public option. Not only does this â&#x20AC;&#x153;public optionâ&#x20AC;? need to be taken off the table, the table itself should be chopped up into little pieces and burnt. In fact, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a table, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a boardâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a â&#x20AC;&#x153;death boardâ&#x20AC;? to decide whether or not youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re healthy enough to live. Federally funded doctors, some of them from Muslim countries, will decide to send old people off on an iceberg. Now at last we can see why Democrats and other liberals are concerned about socalled global warming. They need those icebergs for their euthanasia schemes! Former governess Sarah Palin knows of these icebergsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;she could see them from her window. And as an Alaskan, she knows the special horror of watching the old, the unfit or even just slow learners made to â&#x20AC;&#x153;ride the snow-cone,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;go visit Frostyâ&#x20AC;? or even â&#x20AC;&#x153;take the Polar Express.â&#x20AC;? Having patriotically refused to ever visit a foreign country, I know perfectly well, perhaps better than anyone alive, what goes on in foreign public clinics. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get me started about Michael Moore and his visit to Cuba in Sicko, because once I start, I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stop for hours. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really very fat, you know. Cuba, an example? A slave nation that treats brain tumors with banana leaf poultices and Santeria rituals? How much better it is in Honduras, the Switzerland of Central America, where for a few hundred dollars, doctors will perform any medical procedure from a tummy tuck to a leg transplant. Thanks to the unregulated free market, one Tegucigalpa hospital has developed an innovative surgery. Here, a live Chihuahua is implanted to take the place of a diseased kidney, preventing dialysis and also giving the patient a loyal and friendly animal companion.

Bloviate.com has an important essay on the situation in countries that have made the mistake of installing government healthcare. Take Australia, a country of shut-ins. From Perth to Brisbane, nothing but coughing, unwell physical ruins. After a few decades of public health, these trembling Antipodeans are now so weak they are routinely thrashed by the kangaroos they once easily defeated in boxing matches. The Outback is now overrun with futuristic, leather-clad punks on motorcycles. They know the injuries they sustain from wrist-mounted crossbows and razor boomerangs will be patched up by the long-suffering Australian taxpayer. Take Canada, please! The reason why British Columbia advertises vacation all the time is because everyone in the nation is too ill to take one themselves. Rosy-cheeked from consumption or something, these sufferers overindulge in skiing, tobaggoning and mountain climbing in hopes of retrieving enough strength to make it to the hospice. Mounties and lumberjacks lean on one another like cripples, trying to stagger to the U.S. border in hope of treatment. Fortunately, the Canadian government is doing its best to underfund hospitals to prove the error of this single-payer system. Sadly, this reign of error continues: Norway, packed with diseased wretches; Sweden, â&#x20AC;&#x153;the sick man of Scandinaviaâ&#x20AC;?; Finland, a land of stunted men and women barely taller than concrete garden trolls . . . I could go on, but everyone else in the world has it wrong and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got it right. Further examples would just muddy the issue, and reading just makes you effeminate anyway. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll continue to get the news I need from the airwaves: from people as physically fit as Rush, as mentally healthy as Glenn and as calmly objective as Bill Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Reilly.

Now at last we can see why Democrats and other liberals are concerned about so-called global warming. They need those icebergs for their euthanasia schemes!

the Ford Focus,â&#x20AC;? Borenstein says. The tax will slide along, inversely, with the price of oil. As the price of oil goes up, the pollution tax diminishes, and as gas prices drop, the tax would increase. A severance tax on oil extraction would kick in as the price of oil climbed and the pollution tax amount sank, offsetting volatility. The spoils, calculated back in 2008 to be about $10 billion a year, would go to transportation, says Keeley. Borenstein says he would prefer to see the money go into the general fund. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Any time you start earmarking money, you end up with consequences that box us into bad decisions.â&#x20AC;?

that happen?â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the only issue thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been raised with the tax. Jean Ross, executive director of the California Budget Project, has testified before the commission that a pollution tax is unfair to lower and middleincome families. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The amount that people drive doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t vary much on income. Lower income people end up spending a lot more of their income,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t grow. The goal is to have people consume less fuel. If they do that, your revenues are going to decline, not increase.â&#x20AC;? Dennis DeCota, executive director of California Service Station and Automotive Repair Association and a gas station owner for 31 years in Marin County, agrees, adding, â&#x20AC;&#x153;What it does is take people looking for work, students and people that are on fixed incomes, and it really punishes them,â&#x20AC;? he says. However, DeCota was pleased, albeit skeptical, by one of the tax commissionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s other recommendations: elimination of the state sales tax. He says he would gladly trade sales tax for a pollution tax, which is, according to Keeley, how people should view the commissionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recommendations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Taken as a package, most people will pay less taxes,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s never a constituency for higher taxes, only what taxes purchase. If you would like a cleaner environment and healthier families, what price are you willing to pay to make that happen?â&#x20AC;?

;XUcX]V0[[cWT1^Pcb Glenn Beck Red vs. Van Jones Green

By Juliane Poirier

>

bamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s green jobs guy, Van Jones, got some free publicity last week in Glenn Beckâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s conspiracy sermon on Fox News. What I found interesting about Beckâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rant was the way in which he used a chalkboard. On it was a diagram with arrows to and from the list of alleged villains, including Jones, assisting with Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s formerly secret plan: a Marxist takeover of the United States, stamping out capitalism as we know it. Beck could have used a dry-erase board, but curiously he chose the surface used by teachers during the McCarthy years. For those who are new to chalkboards, they are black or green smooth, matte surfaces that accept chalk marks. These teaching-learning tools were ubiquitous in classrooms during the 19th and 20th centuries, until dry-erase boards replaced them about 20 years ago. To work on advanced numeric formulas, some of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most brilliant minds have used the chalkboard. Albert Einstein, for example, was many times photographed while working equations on a chalkboard. Beck did not use the chalkboard for thinking anything through, but underlined and drew boxes around names and arrows pre-written on the board. Presumably he couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t write because he needed both hands to keep grabbing his head in a show of incredulity for those who might not be feeling it enough. Back to chalkboards. Brilliant minds no longer appear to use them. These mostly obsolete tools are used where no better tools exist or when they might serve a psychological advantageâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;say, if a large portion of a viewing audience grew up in an era of McCarthyinspired conformity, learning their lessons from a chalkboard, including civics lessons about the evils of communism. Some members of the viewing audience, including my parents, might even recall the comic pamphlet issued by an educational arm of the Roman Catholic Church in 1947 whose cover depicted a background of hell-like flames dwarfing the fearful-looking adults being seized by commies (who appear to be strangling a woman) under banners reading,

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Is This Tomorrowâ&#x20AC;? [sic] and â&#x20AC;&#x153;America Under Communism!â&#x20AC;? So I guess the nostalgia factor triggered by an old American classroom chalkboard was an excellent choice for someone who believes that the president of our country is a Marxist. Along with Obama, Jones is thus labeled for wanting to engineer the new green economy to boost the lives of everyone, including the socially disadvantaged. After Beckâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s conspiracy theory was fully disclosed, humorist David Roberts blogged at the Grist.org website. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Turns out Van Jones, President Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s green jobs czar, is going to coordinate a vast radical/communist/ black nationalist takeover of our sweet, virginal land of liberty,â&#x20AC;? Roberts wrote in mock horror. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most diabolical of all, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to do it by organizing efforts to train and employ lowincome people in private sector jobs. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t you understand? Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to take over from the inside! You know: them.â&#x20AC;? Again I am thinking of the McCarthy years, of rampant blacklisting, and of Edgar Hoover spying on citizens. Does any of this sound familiar? Back then: Belong to a food co-op? A-ha! Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a commie. Now: Black leader devoted to environmental justice? You must be a whitehating commie. In 1956, a bill introduced to improve mental health services in Alaska was rejected by politicians who claimed it was a communist plan to create a brainwashing clinic and United Nations concentration camps in Alaska (very close to where one aspiring leader views Russia from her house). Clearly, mental health was too red for the times. So over half a century later, green jobs must also be too red, at least for the head-grabbing guy in front of the chalkboard. Ever hear Jones talk about environmental justice? He describes the first two waves of environmental activism as those that curbed and regulated pollution, but at the expense of the poor, whose backyards became toxic dump sites. Environmental law favored the affluent. Jones envisions the green economy including legislation protecting the poor and vulnerable. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s create this third green wave so that it lifts all boats,â&#x20AC;? Jones said. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m all for that. And if that makes me a commie, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m in very good company.

The nostalgia factor triggered by an old American classroom chalkboard was an excellent choice for someone who believes that the president of our country is a Marxist.

Searching for bagel photos is excruciatingly boring.

7^[TX]>]T

Our ( fairly silly) search for perfection in the bageling arts By Saul Isler

F

hen you scarf a bagel virtually every day of your life, it damned well better be a good one. I do such scarfing, and when my beloved Marin Bagel Co. all of a sudden went kaput, I was forced to mount a desperate bagel chase that stretched from Sausalito to the hinterlands of Santa Rosa and sideways to Napa. Allow me to dispel the myth that the best bagels come from New York. That is so very untrue. The best bagels come from Cleveland, as did I some years ago. You may take that with a pound of salt. I am here, however, to discuss a matter of much nearer importance. Where do the best in the North Bay come from? And can they hope to touch Cleveland? Ours come close, but no touching, please. The exogenous bagel was either birthed in Poland, where beygls were first given in 1610 as gifts to women in childbirth, or in Vienna, where a Jewish baker created the delicacy in 1683 as a gift to the ruling king. The Viennese story claims it was shaped like a stirrup (or a horseshoeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;tales vary), which in German is beugel. Thus sort of

comes the word. (Some say that better than a bagel is a bialy, a smaller, drier, oniony version of its bigger brother, too rare around here to be treated further in this less than scholarly treatise.) These beygl / beugel stories may be apocryphal. What we know, more prosaically, is that the word came from the Yiddish beigl, the familiar torus traditionally made of a yeasted wheat dough, perhaps sweetened with brown sugar, rolled then formed into a ring, boiled in water and baked. And if it ainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t done that way, it ainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a bagel. Not a real one, anyhow. Not a real good one, for sure. One selects a bagel first by hefting it as one would a nice book. Since itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unlikely to be available for this purpose, this must be done by eye. Though perhaps small, it should at least look heavy. Lightweight bagels are for lightweightbagel persons. Its size and shape and the curve of its hole, even the lack of a hole, are of little importance. For the seed-seeking bagelophile, seeding on both sides is a definite plus. If you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe me, try offering an unseeded bottom to a loved one as you munch the top. But ultimately, the only test that really matters is taste. Healthiness? Must we really talk about that? Well, not without comparing bagels to doughnuts, difficult to do because, with all

the varieties of one versus the other, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be comparing apples to oranges. Wanting to compare apples only, I chewed only one type of bagel, the sesame, on my searing search for the best, eschewing poppy seed, garlic, onion, rye, everything, salt, cinnamon, raisin, pumpernickel, blueberry, egg (echhh!), sourdough, asiago cheeseâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the space or the stomach to list all that are available. The test was not blind, but you should know that no one paid me to eat these bagels except the Bohemian itself. I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be bought by bagels alone. I preferred, but didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t demand, that the bagelry be a place with â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bagelâ&#x20AC;? in its name, and be artisanal, not a chain like Noahâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, not a supermarket, coffee shop or patisserie. Also, whether the bagels are hand-formed or extruded by machine, water must be used in their making. That cakey, fluffy, lightweight, waterless bagel you find in the freezer section at your super? Feh and double feh! Never having speed-dated bagels before, I was surprised to find myselfâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;if underwhelmed by a fewâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;seriously knocked out by several. My choice of the top was not far from the bottom. Translation: while our best are awfully damn good, our worst arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t far off. And geography has nothing to do with it.

But our single best, in one manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s highly subjective opinion? The one Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to down for the next 364 breakfasts? Bartonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, San Anselmoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s little storefront bagelier. Bartonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bagels are medium-sized, nicely seeded top and bottom, and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re wonderfully dense and chewy for bracketing lox and cream cheese when untoasted, and

perfect when they are, giving up the kind of sweet that your mother ascribed to things like potatoes and Brussels sprouts. Almost as good are Sonomaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Homegrown and Sonoma Valley Bagel, Napaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Golden and Sausalitoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s smaller but delicious offerings from Bridgeway Bagel. All told, our Left Coast Bay-gels roll well with the Right Coastâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. Try one. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll lift your life up a nosh.

Eleven yummy bagels in the stomach of just one man

First, I froze all the seeded bagels to keep them out-of-the-bin fresh till I could get to them for testing. Then I zapped them for 35 seconds and sliced them, retained their upper half for toasting and schmearing with a little unsalted butter, and tasting their lower half naked (the bagels, not me).

B7>F8=6>55 ctor Fred MacMurray retired to his Russian River Valley ranch as often as he could, eager to remove his growing family from the artiďŹ cial hustle of Los Angeles and to get his own hands dirty working the earth. Set low in a tree-lined bowl that emphasizes the pure blue of the coast-cleared sky above, MacMurray Ranch is the kind of jewel that reminds North Bay residents how lucky we are to live every day where other people come to vacation.

A

Fredâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s daughter Kate is the custodian of the ranchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s legacy, and she graciously opens the home, which is a time-capsule of rustic 1940s-style â&#x20AC;&#x153;ranchâ&#x20AC;? living, to the public a few times a year. The Sonoma County Wine Weekend and the Showcase: Taste of Sonoma events have become signature times to enjoy the rural elegance that the MacMurray family has cherished for some 60 years. The weekend itself is a dizzying trot of winemaker and specialty dinners that culminate on Sept. 6 with the 17th annual Sonoma Valley Harvest Wine Auction, this year held at Cline Cellars and hosted by the longtime growers the Sangiacomo family, who are in their 80th year of making wine in Sonoma. The auction raises thousands for charity each year. Mere mortals may prefer the still-pricey-but-man-do-youget-a-lot Showcase event, slated for Sept. 5 at MacMurray Ranch. A celebration of our natural wonderland, Showcase has literally hundreds of vintners pouring and some 100 restaurateurs offering artful tastes of their wares, includes a celebrity chef cooking competition, a â&#x20AC;&#x153;bubble loungeâ&#x20AC;? hosted by Gloria Ferrer Sparkling Wines, and has a true educational bent, with a crushpad area matching local winemakers with the public and their questions as well as sommelier Christopher Sawyerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s individual tours of the pouring tables.

MacMurray Ranch gets hot in the summer, so hats and fans are advised, as is the consumption of plenty of water. But this semi-dressy event is as much fun for the locals as it is for the out-of-towners who will be eating and drinking for three days straight, enjoying the kind of down-home real food experience that sticks to more than just the ribs. Sonoma County Wine Weekend runs Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Sunday, Sept. 4â&#x20AC;&#x201C;6. Winemaker lunches Friday, $75. Showcase Saturday, $150. Winemaker dinners, Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Saturday, $160; signature dinners, $175. Auction Sunday, $450. MacMurray Ranch, 9015 Westside Road, Healdsburg. www.sonomawinecountryweekend.com.

2>C0C82>A=4A 58=4F8=4B ity the wine country wine shop. In some states, where the timely demise of Prohibition is incomplete, arcane laws forbid the sale of even the tamest spirits alongside grocery items. That strikes a Californian as shocking and unnecessary, as if we bought bread here but butter at the state dairy shop over there. But thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good business for wine shops. Here, with the actual wineries in all directions, many wine shops focus on the tourist trade and mail order, which shows in their prices.

P

What a funky, backyard-chicken-coop college town like Cotati needs in a wine shop is friendly, unpretentious, with a small but unique selection of under $20 wines. And that they have in Cotati Corner Fine Wines. This little Cotati Hub shop purveys a modest selection of local product and a smattering of imports. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got your Scharffen Berger sparkling, and one Prosecco. Zins from small producers like Hobo, Atascadero Creek and Haraszthy. (That the descendants of the inveterate 19thcentury Hungarian vintner have resurrected the brand was news to me.) Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got your obligatory Silver Oak Cab and up-and-coming Zepaltas Pinot, with Carol Shelton pink in the cold case. Areas are given over to table seating and paraphernalia shopping: from a classic line of satirical winetasting greeting cards to coasters, stoppers and trinkets. If thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s any fault to be found here, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only that more space might be devoted to even more wine. The shopping gets hopping on Thursdays when the farmers market bustles across the street. This weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tasting saw cool whites like Taft Street Sauvignon Blanc and Carol Shelton RosĂŠ on tap; another ďŹ&#x201A;ight surveyed a trio of Medlock Ames releases. The hitch: patrons must bring their own glass, or purchase a plastic, virtually unbreakable glass for $2 that could come in handy on a day hike. The joint generated a buzz among a group of happy hour regulars, busily chatting away while the staff found time to greet aimless wanderers. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a low-key and helpful bunch, who never mentioned anything like a â&#x20AC;&#x153;wine clubâ&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x201D; which, oddly enough, some wine shops do, and repeatedly. (Wine club? Take a look at a mapâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in it.) In fact, once Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d selected a perfectly serviceable $12 bottle of chilled Pinot Gris, the proprietor suggested an equally serviceable Sonoma Coast Pinot Grisâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;for just $7. The pity of it is that there arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t more shops like this. Cotati Corner, 1818 La Plaza, Ste. 106, Cotati. Open Tuesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Saturday. Tastings, Thursdayâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Friday, 5pm to 8pm. Fees vary; bring your own glass or purchase at bar. 707.793.9357.

ake a green leaf, spit on it, add a yellow leaf. Take a rock, cover it in flower petals. Regardlessâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;photograph it. What Scottish artist Andy Goldsworthy does sounds simple, yet itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s anything but simplistic. Just ask Hess Collection museum director Robert Ceballos, whose gallery, situated above the Hess Wineryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tasting room and gardens, recently acquired Surface Tension, a new Goldsworthy composed of chestnut leaf stalks solely held together with hawthorn thorns. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I went to storage and opened it up and it was a bunch of sticks; I thought that they were cuttings from a grapevine,â&#x20AC;? he laughs. Purchased from a Bay Area gallery, Surface Tension joins the Hessâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; other works by Goldsworthyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Rock Pools (rocks melted in a kiln turning from sedimentary to igneous); Torn Stones (a video of the rocks melting); and Snowball Drawings (works on paper created when snowballs filled with pigments from California pine seeds and manzanita were allowed to melt)â&#x20AC;&#x201D;making this the largest public Goldsworthy collection on the West Coast. Not every North Bay museum or gallery can show the work of acclaimed international land artists, but that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean that the bar isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t set high this autumn. The Sonoma Valley Museum of Art hosts its â&#x20AC;&#x153;Art Biennial 2009,â&#x20AC;? running through Nov. 29, an exhibit juried by gallerist Susan Cummins, SSU art professor Michael Schwager and painter Frances McCormack. According to new SVMA executive director Kate Eilertsen, some 300 artists applied for the 48 eventual slots. Speaking of Schwager, his University Art Gallery hosts â&#x20AC;&#x153;Usedâ&#x20AC;? Sept. 10-Oct.18, featuring five California artists working with nontraditional materials and readymades. Think

Duchamp and then think beyond. Nov. 5â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Dec. 13, the university holds its annual juried student show, flipping it from its usual spot in the spring. The Marin Museum of Contemporary Art, a somewhat hidden jewel in the newly developed Hamilton area, hosts rock treasure Stanley Mouse in its second â&#x20AC;&#x153;Legends of the Bay Areaâ&#x20AC;? exhibit, running Sept. 26â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Nov. 1; last year, it saluted painter Frank Lobdell. Mouseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s show is subtitled â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Evolution of Stanley Mouseâ&#x20AC;? and features everything from his famed screaming auto sketches to his rock poster art to his more serious and thoughtful nude studies. Following Mouse is the museumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual â&#x20AC;&#x153;Art by the Inchâ&#x20AC;? fundraiser (Nov. 14), in which high-quality paper is stretched around the gallery walls and several artists collaborate to cover it. The public then snips what they want from the finished piece, paying $1 an inch for the work. Talk about your hidden jewels, the Bolinas Museum exactly fits that description, Bolinas residents being famously persnickety about being famous and regularly stealing their townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sign marker from Highway 1. The museumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual fundraiser (Sept. 19) is again slated for Susie and Mark Buellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Peace Barn,â&#x20AC;? and work is currently on preview at the museum for those interested in bidding. To enliven the auction, the amount of work on offer has been halved from the usual 80 pieces to just 40 this year. Assistant director Elia Haworth promises â&#x20AC;&#x153;a longer party and a shorter auction,â&#x20AC;? adding that the food will be wonderful.â&#x20AC;? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s West Marin; we believe her. Opening Oct. 3 is â&#x20AC;&#x153;Going Origami: From Art to Math to Science and Beyondâ&#x20AC;? using the wisdom of physicists and other scientists in paper bending. Starting Nov. 20, look for work by surrealist Petaluma photographer

Michael Garlington and paintings by Chris Hellman, philanthropist and Hardly Strictly Bluegrass founder Warren Hellmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wife and a fine painter in her own right. The Sonoma County Museum continues its annual â&#x20AC;&#x153;Artistry in Woodâ&#x20AC;? exhibit through Sept. 20, opening â&#x20AC;&#x153;Envisioning the World: The First Printed Maps 1472â&#x20AC;&#x201C;1700â&#x20AC;? on Oct. 2 and running through Jan. 17. Drawn from a different section of the huge Wendt family cartographic collection that exhibited at the museum some five years ago, this grouping of 30 ancient maps focuses on post-Renaissance Europe. A new Smithsonian member, the museum is now also the home of Kathryn Hastingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s WordTemple poetry series featuring wellregarded writers reading and in discussion. The innovative Headlands Center for the Arts explores the idea of Utopia for 2010 by starting a new series of discussions on group dynamics as found in communal living and communal art-making with â&#x20AC;&#x153;Becoming Commonsâ&#x20AC;? held in the mess hall on Oct. 24; eating an insanely good dinner is part of it. The fall open houseâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;in which the artists in residence as well as those who rent studio space open their studios to the publicâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;is slated for Oct. 18, and installation artists participate in a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Minimal / Maximalâ&#x20AC;? discussion on Nov. 15. The Arts Council of Sonoma Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exhibit room, ArtSpace404, shows work from each of the 141 participating ARTrails artists Sept. 25â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Oct. 23, allowing the public to get a taste of the work on offer when these artists throughout Sonoma County throw open their doors to the public Oct. 10â&#x20AC;&#x201C;11 and 17â&#x20AC;&#x201C;18. Last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ARTrails generated some $375,000 in sales and almost 4,000 visitors. The Graton Gallery in West County supplements the ArtSpace404 exhibit with extra work by ARTrails participants. Nov. 6â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Dec. 11 finds â&#x20AC;&#x153;Essensual Delights,â&#x20AC;? a group show examining the North Bayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s physical environment with painter and 2006 emerging artist awardee Catherine J. Richardson, textile artist Sasha Duerr and found-object artist Corey Hitchcock. The council hosts its Achievement in the Arts dinner on Sept. 26 at the Santa Rosa Golf and Country Club, this year honoring wine executive and philanthropist Barbara Banke for her work with youth in establishing the Sonoma Country Day School and the Sonoma Academy high school programs. The Arts Council Napa Valley Open Studios run Sept. 19â&#x20AC;&#x201C;20 and 26â&#x20AC;&#x201C;27, featuring 88 artists in 59 studios. For the second year, this is a juried exhibit. Filmmaker Eleanor Coppola and former ambassador Kathryn Hall are co-chairs. Napa comes into its own! The Napa Valley Museum continues its â&#x20AC;&#x153;Portals to the Pastâ&#x20AC;? history exhibit through Oct. 4. On Oct. 9, the space shifts focus dramatically, opening â&#x20AC;&#x153;Corpus Perspicuous: Body Transparent,â&#x20AC;? work by Bay Area artists Cheryl Calleri, Tobin Keller and Thekla Hammond that examines the human form in a manner of media running through Nov. 18. The di Rosa Preserve prepares for its annual yowza auction, previewing work from 50 different artists, most of them collected by founder Rene di Rosa, Oct. 2â&#x20AC;&#x201C;15, with the auction slated for Oct. 17, and featuring donations from Deborah Oropallo, William T. Wiley, Richard Shaw, Enrique Chagoya and a full slate of Big Art Names. Oct. 31â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Jan. 23, the Preserve digs into its vaults with the help of curator Chandra Cerrito to present â&#x20AC;&#x153;Altered States,â&#x20AC;? work related to the mystical, the transcendent and the transformativeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;not a bad way at all to approach the autumn.

As with any scalped ticket, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fork over any cash until you have a hard ticket in hand, and avoid those hawking printed-out â&#x20AC;&#x153;e-ticketsâ&#x20AC;? at all costs. The bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first show in Marinâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;at a small 1,800-seat venue, no lessâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;is a scammerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dream. Be patient, play it smart and you might just get in. Also down in Marin, 142 Throckmorton has Scaring the Children, a supergroup of Bob Weir, Rob Wasserman and former Primus drummer Jay Lane in a benefit performance that includes special guest Jackie Greene (Sept. 12). Piano treasure Denny Zeitlin dazzles with jazz introspection (Nov. 15), and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s anyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s guess when Robin Williams will schedule a lastminute booking (five times in the last month alone), so keep checking the website. The historic Phoenix Theater has begun assembling a database of photos and flyers from the last 20 years in preparation for a book about the history of the venue. The Phoenix also brings back ska-punk favorites Reel Big Fish (Sept. 12), SoCal reggae-punk favorites Pepper (Sept. 27), Canadian jazzpunk veterans Nomeansno (Oct. 11), and bluegrass-punk trio the Devil Makes Three

THE BOHEMIAN



(Oct. 18). And since the Santa Rosa Police Department preemptively shut down last monthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s E-40 show at the Armory as concert organizers were setting up, citing permit issues, hip-hop finds a home in Petaluma again with rapper Devin the Dude and laidback dancehall singer Collie Buddz (Oct. 1). A couple blocks away, the Mystic Theatre boasts a strong fall lineup with Joan Osborne (Oct. 19). Ignore the sappy radio hit â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of Usâ&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x201D;her night there in 2002, right after her show-stealing turn in Standing in the Shadows of Motown, blew the roof off. Dave Alvin and the Guilty Women (an all-female backing band with noted local guitarist Nina Gerber) drop in adjacent to their appearance at the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival (Oct. 2), and songwriting master and guitar wizard Richard Thompson, seemingly realizing that his shows always sell out, has booked two nights to satisfy the faithful (Dec. 2â&#x20AC;&#x201C;3). Further fresh headliners at the theater include Jerry Jeff Walker (Sept. 19), Robert Cray (Sept. 21), and Ky-Mani Marley (Oct. 24). To call Sonny Landreth a slide guitarist is like calling Jackson Pollock a painter; the Louisiana phenomenon, hailed by Eric Clapton as â&#x20AC;&#x153;the most underestimated musician on the planet,â&#x20AC;? appears at the Last Day Saloon (Oct. 24). Metal thrives at the Santa Rosa club with Meldrum (Sept. 10), Jetboy (Sept. 19) and Tantric (Oct. 3), and diehard fans of Sublime can get stoopid at

not one but two separate Sublime tribute bands in one week with the Lou Dog Trio (Sept. 17) and the LBC (Sept. 25). George Porter Jr., the bassist of the Meters who sits alongside James Jamerson and Bernard Odum as a founding father of funk bass, has joined up with DJ Logic and former Miles Davis keyboardist Jason Miles in Global Noize, a cross-cultural hybrid coming to the Hopmonk Tavern during a heavy weekend (Sept. 19). The hangover will linger from the previous nightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s show with Soulive (Sept. 18) but should be cleared for the next nightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s show with the Meat Puppets (Sept. 20). Also on deck is kora master Youssoupha Sidbe (Sept. 11) and Kyle Hollingsworth from String Cheese Incident (Oct. 11). Sonoma State Universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual back-to-school concert this year features Groundation (Oct. 13), a coming home for the reggae group that was founded in SSUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s jazz program and that has since toured the world. (Groundationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s raspy-voiced singer Harrison Stafford actually taught the first California-accredited course on the History of Reggae Music at the University from 1999â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 2001.) At the Casbar in Santa Rosa, which has been booming with top-name reggae headliners lately (the Mighty Diamonds, Mad Professor), Jamaican reggae sensation Tanya Stephens serenades whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sure to be a packed house (Sept. 4). More known for performing in forests, sheds and Sebastopol, the barrel-voiced Iowa songwriting genius Greg Brown stops in wine country at the Napa Valley Opera House (Nov. 14), just one month after Gordon Lightfoot (Oct. 17). Quasiinternational NPR darlings Pink Martini play the Opera Houseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Shaken, Not Stirredâ&#x20AC;? fundraising gala (Oct. 3); full gala tickets including dinner start at $350, although select performance-only tickets will go on sale for $65 on Sept. 3. Just north, at the Lincoln Theater in Yountville, the town known for the French Laundry gets its fill of gumbo and crawfish pie with Buckwheat Zydeco (Sept. 12) and white bread and apple pie with Jay and the Americans (Sept. 18). Rumors are aswirl regarding the music lineup for Santa Rosaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Handcar Regatta (Sept. 27), fueled by Les Claypoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s involvement in this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s event and Tom Waitsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; incognito attendance at last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s steampunk soiree. While the grapevine overflows, confirmed acts include the Pirate Band, Baby Seal Club, Loretta Lynch, the Jungle Love Orchestra, Gabby La La, Uni and her Ukelele and more. Konocti Harbor continues to be country-music central, with Dierks Bentley (Sept. 27), Brooks & Dunn (Oct. 2) and Rascal Flatts (Oct. 17-18). Healdsburg continues to be jazz central, as the Healdsburg Jazz Festival books the outstanding Trio 3 with Oliver Lake, Andrew Cyrille and Reggie Workman (Nov. 3). Nadja Salerno-Sonnenberg performs Bach with the New Century Chamber Orchestra at the Osher Marin Jewish Community Center (Sept. 13), the Napa Valley Symphony welcomes Doc Severinsen (Oct. 24), and the Russian River Chamber Music Society presents its international series premiere with the Shanghai Quartet (Oct. 2) at the Healdsburg Community Church as well as a laymanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s guide to classical music at the Bear Republic Brewing Co. with Bach, Beer and Burgers (Sept. 20).

rom time-traveling Victorian butterfly hunters to time-traveling Spanish-speaking immigrants; from shipwrecked sailors fending off the attacks of benevolent wizards to eccentric social anarchists fending off attacks from the IRS; from philosophical Iraqi expatriates to culture-challenging Jewish artists, the local theater scene looks to be a fascinating autumnal parade of chance, risk, individuality and danger. Eric Overmyerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s offbeat â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;On the Verge,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; sets sail at Petalumaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cinnabar Theater Sept. 25â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Oct. 11, following three pith-helmeted Victorian explorers (local favorites Liz Jahren, Laura Jorgenson and Jessica Powell) as they head into the jungle in 1888 and find themselves journeying through time, skipping inexplicably about the globe, wielding knives and net, and dropping eloquent one-liners all along the way. Across their universe, the curiositydriven trio encounter a series of unusual humans, trolls and yetis, all played by one amorphous actor (Tim Kniffin). Best known as the writer and producer behind such television shows as Homicide: Life on the Streets and The Wire, Overmeyerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mindbending script makes language the key. A coproduction with the Sixth Street Playhouse, this show will make its own leap across time and geography when it moves to the Studio at Sixth Street for another run in late October. The time-traveling theme continues with the Imaginistsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; world premiere of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Extranjeros de la Propia Tierraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (Aliens of the Land Itself), a production of Project 104, created in collaboration with the Graton Day Labor Center. The show, running Sept.17â&#x20AC;&#x201C;19 and 24â&#x20AC;&#x201C;26, looks to continue the daring, experimental theater that has become the

THE BOHEMIAN



hallmark of Santa Rosaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Imaginists Theatre Collective. Set in a â&#x20AC;&#x153;mythical desert,â&#x20AC;? the Spanish-English comedy-drama-fantasy involves a magical passage through which a band of home seekers travel back and forth through time. The storyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more fantastical elements apparently include a talking shoe and a flood-challenged courtroom, and was created by the performers as an exploration of immigrant and social rights issues. In Railroad Square, the Sixth Street Playhouse presents a very different spin on time-traveling, taking us back to 1930s America with Moss Hart and George S. Kaufmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s beloved â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;You Canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Take It with You,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; playing Oct. 2â&#x20AC;&#x201C;25. Featuring a large cast that includes John Craven, Joe Winkler, Peter Warden, Chris Murphy, Keith Baker and Elly Lichenstein, You Canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Take It with You gives us the eccentric Sycamore family. Apparently nuts up and down the family tree, the Sycamores experience a societal road block when they are investigated for tax evasion at the same time that the youngest (and sanest) daughter falls in love with the son of a straight-laced businessman. The comedy explores the true madness of the American dream, asking if love, devotion and individual expressions arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, in fact, more sane than the blind pursuit of normalcy. Over in Sebastopol, the Sonoma County Repertory Theatre continues its annual Shakespeare festival with a wildly innovative adaptation of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Tempest,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; running Sept. 18â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Oct. 18. Created by mask-and-puppet mastermind Conrad Bishop, this production combines live actors and puppets, digital projections and shadow imagery with an original musical score by Elizabeth Fuller, emphasizing the â&#x20AC;&#x153;puppet masterâ&#x20AC;? nature of the banished magician Prospero as he conjures the titular tempest and pulls the

strings that will bring his enemies onto the shores of his island home. The buzz is already deafening, as word spreads that this visual, magical enterprise is turning out to be a true theatrical eyeful, full of jaw-dropping splendor and playful trickster surprises. And speaking of surprises, actress Denise Elia had hoped to revisit the one-woman play â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;9 Parts of Desireâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; by Heather Raffo. Ever since taking on the gargantuan nine-role Parts last year (in a production at the Sixth Street Playhouse that won her a Bay Area Theater Critics Circle nomination for Best Actress), Elia has been imagining a return to the one-of-a-kind show, a poetic exploration of the lives of nine Iraqi women, before and after the fall of Saddam. Just a few weeks ago, Elia announced that, with her new found RIOT theater company, and the sponsorship of the Sonoma County Peace and Justice Center, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be tackling the show again. The piece now features a fresh, new polish of the script, offered up by playwright Raffo, with whom Elia has formed a strong friendship since first discovering the play. Co-directed by Elia and Maria Magdalena Giordano, the show runs for eight performances, beginning (by judicious design) on Sept. 11, running through Sept. 27. All performances take place at the Glaser Center in Santa Rosa. Following a summer of Wild West Shakespeare, Santa Rosaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s increasingly visible Narrow Way Stage Company takes its youthpowered vision and energy to the Studio at Sixth Street Playhouse with a three-weekend run of Laurence Fishburneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hip-hop-fueled drama â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Riff Raff.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Originally written for three black actors, Fishburne (yep, Orpheus himself has written a play!) makes it clear in the forward that he envisions actors of all colors and ages performing the show, though Narrow Way may be the first company to do it. With a rotating cast of six actors, every performance will be different as new faces cycle in and out of the show about three urban friends attempting to survive the mean, uncompromising streets of the city. Directed by Adam Palafox, who trained with San Franciscoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s legendary Campo Santo theater ensemble, Riff Raff runs Sept.25â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Oct. 11. In Marin, the ever-excellent Marin Theatre Company kicks off its new season with the stage adaptation of Chaim Potockâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s celebrated â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;My Name Is Asher Lev.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; With a script by Aaron Posner, the play, directed by Hal Brooks, details the emotional journey of a Jewish painter, raised in the strict Hasidic community, as he finds himself torn between the faith of his fathers and his own overpowering drive to make a name as an artist. If the play is as moving, wise and insightful as the novel, the MTC production could be a significant theatrical event. Finally, the Ross Valley Players celebrate their 80th anniversary with the Bay Area premiere of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Premiere,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; a comedy by the late, great Dale Wasserman (best known for his stage adaptation of One Flew Over the Cuckooâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Nest). Running Sept. 11â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Oct. 11, this farcical comedy follows what happens when a desperate playwright fabricates a â&#x20AC;&#x153;lostâ&#x20AC;? manuscript by William Shakespeare. When it becomes a worldwide sensation, he cannot of course convince the skeptical critics that he is the true author. Theatrical adventurers will be wise to mark their calendars now. As several of this fallâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stage characters will attest, time has a way of skipping right past the best laid, and best played, plans.

Docs and pox mark the new cinema season By Richard von Busack

bring news of cinematic destruction. This season is skewed toward apocalypse and messages of planetary peril. Once the summerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s over, the fall crop of films is guaranteed to send people back to school, whether theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re students or not. Such is the result of a plethora of documentaries and film festivals trying to fill in the blank spaces Hollywood and the Murdochified news leave out. The big-name prestige items are all in place, though. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;A Serious Manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (Oct. 2) is the new Coen Brothers offering, another sort of noncomedy set in a cow college, where a physics professor (Michael Stuhlbarg) gets the works from students, family and friends. George Clooney is back in the Wes Anderson-Noah Bambauch stop-motion animation â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Fantastic Mr. Foxâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (Nov. 13), which features two filmmakers who have a bit of trouble getting over their childhoods doing an out-and-out childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s story by Roald Dahl. Clooney in fox form seems right; so does Bill Murray as a badger. But the really big box office should go to â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;New Moonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (Nov. 20), the sequel to Twilight, featuring the steadily improving Kristen Stewart. Since anyone will flock to see vampires doing anything, more bloodsuckers bare their fangs in â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Cirque du Freak: The Vampireâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Assistantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (Oct. 23), with the everamusing John C. Reilly as a vamp. Megan Fox stars as a cannibal high school chick in the Diablo Codyâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;scripted â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Jenniferâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (Sept. 18). â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Zombielandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (Oct. 9), a comedy, despite its dire title, co-stars Abigail Breslin among the munched and munchies. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Roadâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (Oct. 16), John Hillcoatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s adaptation of Cormac McCarthyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s prestigious gut-muncher, is just the uplifting bummer youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d expect, even if the zombie ogres in it arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t per se zombies, just post-apocalyptic cannibals. Viggo Mortensen limps through

the action, indomitable. Only Abe â&#x20AC;&#x153;Grandpaâ&#x20AC;? Simpson could properly read aloud McCarthyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lamentations and Biblical warnings. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doomed, I tells ya! As one can see from the nuclear winter, piled-up human skulls and weird product placements for Coke and Jack Daniels in The Road, Earth really has it coming. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;2012â&#x20AC;&#x2122; (Nov. 13) gives Deutschlandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Duke of Demolition a chance to blow up the planet as John Cusack looks properly aghast when the ancient Mayan prophecy is fulfilled, and we all lose our cleaning deposit. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (Sept. 18) has a rogue inventor nigh destroying the planet with good intentions. The CGI-animated â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;9â&#x20AC;&#x2122; (Sept. 9), not to be confused with the Rob Marshall musical â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Nineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (Nov. 25) or District 9, may be one of the yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s highlights, considering how adultfriendly and compulsively watchable Coraline and Up were. In a wasteland long after the age of man, mechanical/biotic creatures quest for the secret of life. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Planet 51â&#x20AC;&#x2122; (Nov. 20) is like a comedy version of Ray Bradburyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mars Is Heaven!â&#x20AC;? with a planet full of 1950s suburban aliens. More plausible demolitionâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the attempted crushing of one fat girl in late 1980s Harlemâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;takes place in the acclaimed but dire indie â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Preciousâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (Nov. 6), the adaptation of single-monikered novelist Sapphireâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Push. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a realist film with Italian touches: a bit of Juliet of the Spirits flavoring and a clip from De Sicaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Two Women. A drab-looking Mariah Carey, as a seemingly sensitive social worker, and a very good Moâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Nique as the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worst mom, beg us not to judge them. Too bad director Lee Daniels is judge, jury and executioner. Oprah is going to weep buckets. As the film year progresses, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m finding that documentaries and cartoons are what look the most promising. The dramas take place in a televisionized vacuum of prosperity, as unrelated to 2009 realities as

the escapist comedies of the 1930s were to the Great Depression. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Energy and the Worldâ&#x20AC;? is the theme of the stalwart UNAFF Film Festival, running Sept. 30 in Sonoma County. The lineup this year is particularly strong. Slated is â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Garden,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; the riveting true story of a fight over a community garden in south Los Angeles; â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Age of Stupid,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; starring Pete Postlethwaite as a man of the midâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;21st century looking back at us, his stupid globalwarming-denying grandfathers. Also on view will be Sally Ingletonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Seed Hunter,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; about the search for heirlooms, and â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Yes Men Fix the World,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; a sprightly documentary about two provocateurs who beard corporate suits in their dens. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Good Hairâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (Oct. 23) by ace comedian Chris Rock takes its title from an AfricanAmerican expression; translated it means â&#x20AC;&#x153;as nonkinky as possible.â&#x20AC;? People of color still spend millions on gross chemicals and expensive procedure. The old-time corrosive methods of hair relaxationâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;lye, gasoline or other causticsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;have changed, but not the essential meaning of this war on nappiness. (Fun fact: Billie Holidayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s trademark gardenia is something she picked up to cover a hole burned in her hair.) â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Capitalism: A Love Storyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (Oct. 2) is Michael Mooreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bouquet to the only system that could ever possibly work, world without end, amen. Twenty years after the fall of the Berlin Wallâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and the capitulation of the much-feared competitionâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the system is, well, just as you see it around you. Mooreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s focus is more on this last year right after Wall Street got the U.S. government to find its checkbook for them. Get out your handkerchiefs: Moore tells a sad tale of poverty-stricken CEOs and bankers mewling for sustenance like abandoned kittens. Speaking of our overlords, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Crudeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (Sept. 25) is Joe Berlingerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s documentary concerning the $27 billion lawsuit that Ecuadorian natives brought against Chevron and Texaco (the company Chevron engulfed). And â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Earth Daysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (Sept. 18) charts the almost 40 years of Earth Day celebrations, with notes on the eco movement from astronauts to biologists. And the almost-documentary â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Informant!â&#x20AC;&#x2122; (Sept. 18) presents Steven Soderberghâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s comedic version of a serious story about the unlikely whistleblower (played by Matt Damon) who helped nail Big Agâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Archer Daniels Midland. Similarly, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Men Who Stare at Goatsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (Nov. 6) takes a true story and skews it a bit; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s based on Guardian reporter Jon Ronsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s book about the U.S. Armyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attempts to create psychic assassins and soldiers who can walk through walls like Sprite from the X-Men. In dutiful response to the calendar, Robert Zemeckisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; adaptation of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;A Christmas Carolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (Nov. 6) pushes back the unavoidable holiday six weeks with a performancecaptured animated version of Dickens, replete with Jim Carrey playing Scrooge and the three ghosts. The digitized Londonâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; with a Big Ben under construction scaffoldsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;is essential to this extravaganza. And lastly, served up for Thanksgiving, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Princess and the Frogâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (Nov. 25)â&#x20AC;&#x201D;a New Orleansâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;set version of â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Frog Princeâ&#x20AC;? in traditional animation by Disneyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; may either be the continuation of a 75-yearold tradition of quality cartooning or the tombstone of it. And do we want to live in a world without flat animation?

A Little Bit Taller

Fiyo on the Bayou

I Remember

Les Monstreux

Pop-rap can be a funny little cottage industry. In a subgenre defined by â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ice Ice Babyâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;U Canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Touch This,â&#x20AC;? itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also included surprisingly great material like â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bust a Moveâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mama Said Knock You Out.â&#x20AC;? So while we ruminate on Jazzy Jeff, on House of Pain, on Tone Loc and Naughty by Nature, let us also tip a hat to the 1995 hit â&#x20AC;&#x153;I Wish,â&#x20AC;? by Skee-Lo, who soared up the charts by telling us that he wished he was a little bit taller and, furthermore, that he was a baller. Over 14 years later, the Los Angeles rapper, away from the game for the last nine years, opens for local Santa Rosa rap group At All Costs on a Thursday night. His upcoming album, Overdose, hopes to at least put him at top billing next time he comes around. Do the running man and wish along with him when he appears on Thursday, Sept. 3, at the Last Day Saloon. 120 Fifth St., Santa Rosa. 9:30pm. $10â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$12. 707.545.2343.

Two undisputed rulers of New Orleans music? On one bill? In a tiny, intimate theater? Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exactly whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in store when Dr. John and the Neville Brothers pull out all the swampy stops the Napa Valley this Labor Day. Dr. John, who has a voice begging almost as much as Aaron Nevilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s to be parodied (quick television reference: Family Guyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Aaron Neville megaphoneâ&#x20AC;?), carries with him a complex detachment in personâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;either heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s completely bored of playing â&#x20AC;&#x153;Right Place, Wrong Timeâ&#x20AC;? or heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just the coolest dude in the world. The fact he plays both organ and piano at the same time, straddling the bench, makes us opt for the latter. The Neville Brothers, unfairly overshadowed by key member Aaronâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s solo success, never fail to pull people out of their seats. The two legends appear on Monday, Sept. 7, at the Napa Valley Opera House. 1030 Main St., Napa. 7pm. $95â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$110. 707.226.7372.

He was a member of the Petaluma Jakâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s skateboard team, a guitarist for the band Free Cowboy Hats, a constant presence behind the concession stand at the Phoenix Theater and a tireless supporter of local bands. More than this, Kristof â&#x20AC;&#x153;Gooseâ&#x20AC;? Gross was one of the most sincere and kind-hearted people Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve known. His funeral in Mill Valley this year brought people together in beer salutes and songs, but what he really would have loved was knowing that MDC, one of his favorite punk bands, would agree to play a remembrance for him. In 1988, MDC played the Cotati Cabaret, where singer Dave Dictor stripped off his clothes and traded underwear with a girl; last year in Santa Rosa, they were polite as your mom. Kristof, of course, took pictures, smiled and sang along in the front row the entire time. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a fitting tribute when MDC play with Litany for the Whale, Fistifuks and Semi-Evolved Simians on Sunday, Sept. 6, at the North Bay Film and Art Collective. 99 Sixth St., Santa Rosa. 7pm. $7. 707.542.2925.

Fresh from a residency at Alasdair Fraserâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s summer fiddle camp, fiddle maestro and instructor Darol Anger brings his Monster String Quartet this weekend to West Marin. The â&#x20AC;&#x153;monstersâ&#x20AC;? in this case are three young girls in their 20s: Lauren Rioux, Brittany Haas and Natalie Haas. The sisters Haas are known best for their work with the Boston bluegrass band Crooked Still, while Rioux, from Scarborough, Maine, has a private studio of fiddle students age five to 65. All three girls have been students of Anger and members of his acclaimed Republic of Strings project. See what the stripped-down version comes up with when they pull, chop and bend the strings on Saturday, Sept. 5, at the Dance Palace. 503 B St., Point Reyes Station. 8pm. $5â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$20. 415.663.1075.

THE BOHEMIAN



Local mid-â&#x20AC;&#x2122;90s bands reunite for Nostalgia Fest onoma County in the mid-â&#x20AC;&#x2122;90s was a magical place for music, if you could find it. Long before MySpace, bands photocopied fliers and risked vandalism fines by stapling them to telephone poles in the hope of getting 20 people to a show. It was a scene that encouraged tone-deaf people like me to learn how to play bass guitar, write a zine and actually participate in something other than watching television. These bands changed my life, and they offer a shot of that same inspiration on Sept. 5 at the Phoenix Theater for a onenight reunion. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not as if all of these people just faded awayâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;some moved on, but many stayed. Ben Saari of Mickey and the Bigmouths is one of the founders of the Free Mind Media Center. Darwin Meiners of Caffeine still plays music, directed the ďŹ lm FairďŹ eld, Idaho, and puts on the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Look Ma, No Band!â&#x20AC;? shows. And Kevin McCracken of Twine is the Chief Operating OfďŹ cer of Social Imprints, a forwardthinking screenprinting company that makes shirts for Metallica and Grizzly Bear. There isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t enough space to chronicle all of the bands spawned by these folks: the Crux, Santiago, Edaline, Secret Courtesy, Holy Rolemodel, Aim Low Kid, the Drone, Semi-Evolved Simians, Desert City Soundtrack, the Listening Group, the Aphrodisiacs, Luv nâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Rockets, and How to Lie are just a few. With punk, hardcore, ska, and what people would later deny was â&#x20AC;&#x153;emo,â&#x20AC;? this bill covers a lot of ground in a half-day festival of feedback and barbecue. Bring some extra bucks for the merch table, come back home to the Phoenix, and pay homage to Sonoma Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s roots! Nostalgia Fest features reunions by Kid Dynamo (above), Ground Round, Blindspot, Caffeine, the Invalids, Schoolbox, Mickey & the Bigmouths, Twine and the Catnips on Saturday, Sept. 5, at the Phoenix Theater. 201 E. Washington St., Petaluma. $10. 5pm. Yes, it is true: 21 and over only. 707.762.3565. Kevin Jamieson

How Eric Lindell makes it in the business ld-timers will complain and complain about how young bands have it easy these days, swallowing the baited clichĂŠ of the overnight hit single, the fashionable haircut and the glossy magazine cover. The reality of the situation is far more grim, exacerbated by the level playing field of the internet. In order to get noticed amid the constant barrage of MySpace pages and blog reviews, musicians have to take matters behind their own steering wheel and follow a constant regimen of touring and playing live as much as possible. After 16 years, as long as youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re talented, good-looking, have a reliable band and havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t yet burnt out, overdosed, lost your creative impetus in a messy divorce or found Jesus, you might get lucky enough to break even. Just ask Eric Lindell. After putting out Gulf Coast Highway, the best record of his long career, Lindell in 2009 is the living disputation of the idea that kids get rich overnight in the music business. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been patiently clawing his way up since playing small bars in Santa Rosa, doing things the slow but right way. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s constantly on the road, tirelessly playing with anyone and for anyone along the way. And though he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have that big hit or that glossy magazine cover, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got something worth far more: respect. Those who havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t kept tabs on Lindell in the last few years are encouraged to pick up a copy of Gulf Coast Highway, or better yet, see him live on Friday, Sept. 4, at the Cloverdale Plaza (Downtown Cloverdale; 7pm; free; 707.894.4410) or Saturday, Sept. 5, at the Last Day Saloon (120 Fifth St., Santa Rosa; 8:30pm; $15â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$18. 707.545.2343).

6C>C70A8II>;C>C708II0H Jay-Z feeds off Grizzly Bear for fresh inspiration in hip-hop.

9XVVP FWPc.

In which Jay-Z big-ups indie rock By Gabe Meline

B

ure, Jay-Z and BeyoncĂŠ hardly ever show up in public together, and yet it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the weirdest thing in the world that the royal couple showed up to Grizzly Bearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s outdoor concert in Brooklyn over the weekend. Grizzly Bear, of course, is the buzz band of the year, and much like the Arcade Fire secured the older generationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nod of approval through collaborations with David Bowie and Bruce Springsteen, Grizzly Bear have appeared onstage and in the studio with Paul Simon, Michael McDonald and the Los Angeles Philharmonic. So Jay-Z and BeyoncĂŠ? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not unusual. What was unusual was Jay-Zâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s explanation for being at the show, from an MTV interview earlier this week, and it is strangely and satisfyingly on point. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The thing I want to say to everyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;I hope this happens because it will push rap, it will push hip-hop to go even furtherâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;what the indie rock movement is doing right now is very inspiring,â&#x20AC;? he told MTV on Monday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It felt like us in the beginning. These concerts, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not on the radio, no one hears about them, and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 12,000 people in attendance. And the music that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re making and the connection theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re making to people is really inspiring. So I hope that they have a run where they push hip-hop back a little bit, so it will force hip-hop to

fight to make better music. Because it can happen. Because thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what rap did to rock.â&#x20AC;? In the past few years, Jay-Zâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been more a galvanizing figurehead of hip-hop than rapper of great artistic vitality, so his stance is important in several ways, and not just because heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s drawing attention to a very good band. His undercurrent here is twofold: one, that operating independently outside of the mainstream music industry is the right way to do things; and two, that hip-hop kinda sucks these days. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Indie rockâ&#x20AC;? is a funny phrase, especially since, like â&#x20AC;&#x153;alternative rockâ&#x20AC;? before it, it signifies a style of music that has become widely accepted. But its etymology remains proper. Though there are exceptions in the form of Modest Mouse and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, the most successful indie-rock bands right nowâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Grizzly Bear, Arcade Fire, Animal Collective, Vampire Weekend, Dirty Projectorsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;record for thriving independent labels and intentionally avoid venues under the corporate stranglehold of the despicable behemoth Live Nation. Jay-Z is under that stranglehold; heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in the same company as U2, Madonna and Nickelback by signing a â&#x20AC;&#x153;360 Dealâ&#x20AC;? that gives Live Nation, a spinoff of Clear Channel, the rights to all of his recordings, live shows, merchandising and tours for the next decade. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a $152 million contract, so Jay canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be completely ashamed of signing his career away, but it is nice to know that thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a small kernel of his brain that remembers his own independent label he founded long ago, Roc-a-Fella Records, and that sees a band like Grizzly Bear and says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yeah man, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the way.â&#x20AC;? As for the second subtext, that hiphop sucks these days, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s true to an extent, insofar as one is willing or able to dig. In other words, look underground. The most promising hip-hop debut this year is by a former automotive engineer from Detroit named Finale, who left the assembly line eight years ago to focus on rapping fulltime. A Pipe Dream and a Promise, released this year on Interdependent Media, is the sound of Detroit that Eminem could never hope to capture, a pastiche of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rich musical history, from Motown to house music to J. Dilla, with Finaleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own tales from one of the most hard-hit, economically depressed cities in America. As a snapshot of Detroit, the album is vivid with abandoned neighborhoods, struggling families and old auto-industry friends out of work. As a snapshot of Finaleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s personal life, the album contains unflinching honesty like â&#x20AC;&#x153;Brotherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Keeper,â&#x20AC;? a moving account of his family laying blame on him when his brother landed in jail. And as a snapshot of whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s who in production, the album boasts beats by Los Angeles electro whiz Flying Lotus, Motor City producer Black Milk and the late, elevated J. Dilla, who recognized and gave Finale a huge early push. Finale has already signed, regretted and wrangled out of various business contracts, so he knows what the industry can do to earnest young artists. So far, staying independent is paying off, probably much more so than any ill-fated major-label deal he could sign. Just like Grizzly Bearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s done. And just like Jay-Z, somewhere deep down, beneath his $152 million deal with Live Nation, recognizes.

Custom hot rods on display at the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Wrong Side of the Tracksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; f youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in a framing shop in the next few weeks and you see Travis Kennedy picking out a choice frame, feel free to walk up and shake his hand. The muscular, tattooed owner of Daredevils & Queens hair salon in Railroad Square and founding member of the Dirty Jerks Car Club was recently clocked driving 95mph in Wendover, Utah, and he was issued a speeding ticket heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more than proud to hang on his wall. Why? Because Kennedy was going 95mph . . . in a 1931 Model A. This Saturday, the Dirty Jerks Car Club hosts â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wrong Side of the Tracks,â&#x20AC;? a car show in Santa Rosaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Railroad Square designed to promote the idea that vintage cars are meant to be driven. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a car, not a trophy,â&#x20AC;? Kennedy insists, who along with driving his â&#x20AC;&#x2122;31 Model A to Bonneville and back also drives a 1952 Chevy to work every day. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wrong Side of the Tracksâ&#x20AC;? focuses on pre1965 traditional hot rods, custom cars and low riders with an emphasis on owner maintenance, â&#x20AC;&#x153;instead of some rich guy who can afford to pay some shop to build his car for him, who puts it in his trailer to take it to Hot August Nights once a year, and then it just sits in his garage.â&#x20AC;? Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expect a Harrahâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s showroom atmosphere at â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wrong Side of the Tracks.â&#x20AC;? The flyer advises â&#x20AC;&#x153;No Billetâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; No Trailer Queensâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;No Bullshit.â&#x20AC;? Chances are, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be guys covered in axle grease poking under each otherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dented hoods talking about carburetors alongside older people reliving bygone memories (a 70-year-old woman once saw Kennedyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s car and confided to him that she was once â&#x20AC;&#x153;compromisedâ&#x20AC;? in a â&#x20AC;&#x2122;52 Chevy). Loud, fast and out-of-control bands in the form of Ashtray, Moonshine, Snipers and more will keep the festivities hopping, and the next day, participants are invited to join in the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lucky Bastards Reliability Runâ&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x201D;the lucky bastards being the ones whose 60-year-old cars donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t break down while driving around. Reliable or not, old cars will always have a way with turning heads. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You can go spend $80,000 on some badass new truck, lifted and everything,â&#x20AC;? Kennedy says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but I can drive by one of those trucks, and I guarantee you that girl thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sitting passenger in that big olâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; expensive truck is gonna be looking down at my car, going, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a cool car.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wrong Side of the Tracksâ&#x20AC;? features pre-1965 custom cars and the music of Ashtray, Moonshine, Snipers and more on Saturday, Sept. 5, at Depot Park. Railroad Square, Santa Rosa. 10amâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;7:30pm. Free for spectators; $10 entry for car owners, no pre-registration. 707.577.8674. Gabe Meline

Sausalito Art Fest films our own little slice of Woodstock erhaps the finest commercial art fair on the West Coast, the Sausalito Art Festival is also widely known for its great food, spectacular bayside setting and the yowza music lineup. Musical artists who normally hold sway in large amphitheatres seem to like the intimacy and immediacy of the tent at Sausalito, and many renowned older acts that might fill the Shoreline are often on the roster. This year is no exception, except that the amphitheater they most famously filled was on a small muddy farm in upstate New Yorkâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve read any media lately, you know how this sentence ends: at Woodstock. Country Joe McDonald hosts the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heroes of Woodstockâ&#x20AC;? tour arriving at Sausalito for the final day of the fest on Sept. 7. In attendance will be pianist Tom Constanten of the Grateful Dead, the Quicksilver Messenger Service, Big Brother and the Holding Company, Canned Heat, Jefferson Starship and plenty of movie cameras. The bands are also essentially adhering to the set lists they performed at the original concert. The Starship will actually play the Airplane; Big Brother will stick to Janis. The concert, as was the Aug. 15 tribute concert at the Bethel center in Woodstock, is being filmed in highdefinition 2-D and 3-D for a DVD release slated for October. Not only will it feature the acts, if you attend Sausalito, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s every chance it will also feature you. What has us stumped is the 3-D aspect. Not to be ageist, but the original dudes from Big Brother, the Starship, et al., are of an age when unfortunate hairs sprout from eyebrows, ears and noses. Do we really want that kind of natural phenomenon springing, all lifelike, into our faces? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nobodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s zooming in that close to anyone,â&#x20AC;? assures Golden Leaf Pictures vice president of creative development Ed Olson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What 3-D does more than anything is that it gives you a clarity more true to the real concert experience. Given the immersive quality of the imagery, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s this really great feeling of depth.â&#x20AC;? With a steady cam, overhead booms and a camera onstage, the spectacle of filmmaking will be as much a part of the afternoon as the music itself. Olson says that there will be signs alerting the crowd to the possibility that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be captured, before giving a short laugh. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You should move to the back,â&#x20AC;? he warns, â&#x20AC;&#x153;if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re with someone you shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be with.â&#x20AC;? The Sausalito Art Festival runs Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Monday, Sept. 5â&#x20AC;&#x201C;7, from 9am with a preview gala slated for Friday, Sept. 4, at 6pm. Saturday is â&#x20AC;&#x2122;80s madness with the English Beat, Tainted Love and Night Ranger. Sunday is blue with the Fabulous Thunderbirds and Johnny Winter. Every day features high-level commercial fine art. Marinship Park at the Bay Model, 2100 Bridgeway, Sausalito. $5â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$20; under 6, free. Three-day pass, $30; gala, $125. 415.331.4757.
