Rhapsodies Beating a Dirty Game Sonoma Clean Power: The power of choice BY WOODY HASTINGS he most recent Bohemian article about Sonoma Clean Power (SCP) focuses largely on the four top energy service providers (ESPs) competing for SCP’s contract. The story implies that the power mix of the chosen ESP will be the power mix of SCP, but this is not the case.

T

As an analogy, when you shop at a store, you don’t buy a portion of everything available in the ratio in stock; you buy what you want. Decision-making about the power mix of SCP is in the hands of its future board, which ideally will include every eligible Sonoma County city. Sonoma Clean Power will launch with a mix of 33 percent renewable energy and will include no coal or nuclear power. Any community choice energy program emerging today needs to contract with experienced energy players, and—news flash—there are no angels in this game. These are the players with the experience and heft needed for SCP to succeed. Fossil and nuclear sources are part of today’s energy-generation reality. All of these ESPs, however, have a keen interest in expanding their enterprises in the renewable energy arena, and are eager to do so in the California market. The key is that SCP will be a local decision-making entity with the power to transition from fossil and nuclear toward energy efficiency and localized solar, wind and other sustainable energy sources. The relationship with these ESPs is inherently limited; in fact, the contract in question is only for three years. The ESP will not “run” SCP. The Sonoma Clean Power Authority board will run SCP. The contract with the ESP is not all that SCP will be doing. Sonoma Clean Power will be taking on energy-efficiency projects that are unrelated to the ESPs, and will also be engaging in policies and programs separate from the ESP contract that aim to develop local energy resources. Over time, dependency on the ESPs for remote power, be it renewable or not, will diminish as Sonoma County produces more of its power cleanly and locally. Woody Hastings is the renewable energy implementation manager for the Climate Protection Campaign. The Climate Protection Campaign first introduced the idea of Sonoma Clean Power in a white paper in 2005. Contact Woody at woody@climateprotection.org. Open Mic is a weekly feature in the ‘Bohemian.’ We welcome your contribution. To have your topical essay of 350 words considered for publication, write openmic@bohemian.com.

Ironic, Ain’t It?

Why is it that nowhere in this story (“Steep Climb,” May 15) is Amgen (the tour sponsor) mentioned as the manufacturer and clandestine provider of the primary drug in the scandal? Why do the riders get slammed over and over while the creator and pusher of EPO gets the publicity, and praise, for the Tour of California— despite being deeply and darkly implicated in some seriously ugly drug controversy?

THOM BUTLER Via online

Dirty Power I’d love it if PG&E were on this list (“The Final Four,” May 15) to weigh these companies fairly, and if the Bohemian asked Sonoma Clean Power to talk about what it’s like to try to buy cleaner power with a cheaper price in a market known for being dirty in general. We as citizens just didn’t push hard enough to demand a nationwide cleanenergy supply, so now we’re stuck with playing in the dirty muck of the energy market as it is.

BEN ZOLNO Sebastopol

I, too, would like PG&E to be compared with the four companies being considered by Sonoma Clean Power. I am shocked at the heavy involvement in nuclear, and would never support that. And I grew up in New York City with ConEd, which I associate with belching smokestacks. I suspect that PG&E might look angelic in comparison. Although I spoke last night in favor of Petalumans having some choice, what I have read here is looking like “out of the frying pan and into the fire.” I am concerned and would like to hear what Sonoma Clean Power has to say about the advantages of going with their plan.

On Wilderness

With great respect for Lynn Hamilton, her letter regarding Drake’s Bay Oyster Company is off the mark on a critical issue. Pt. Reyes National Seashore is not wilderness. “Wilderness” is defined as “an area where the earth and community of life are untrammeled by man” and “an area of undeveloped Federal land retaining its primeval character and influence.” In our region, “primeval” was before white people radically changed the landscape and ecosystems. This area was wilderness when elk and antelope grazed the coastal bluffs, millions of fish filled the waters and humans lived in close relationship with the land, burning, pruning, harvesting and seeding, working respectfully in balance with nature. Those days are long gone and cannot be recreated. Millions of people live in the Bay Area, the great predators and grazers are history, and annual grasses and other nonnative species have replaced native bunch grasses. The bays not only lack the populations of fish and shellfish that used to keep waters clean, but the “nutrient” load is massive. Oyster farms provide essential “ecosystem services” by removing excess nutrients. Yet oysters are very sensitive to pollution, so the farmers have a vested interest in protecting against “upstream” pollution. Research has shown that grazing with cows and other livestock, when done with careful attention to the land, reduces invasive species, helps to bring back native plants and increases soil carbon sequestration. Now that the landscape is so radically altered, leaving it “alone” only exacerbates the problems. This is why farmers who live on and with the land have such an important place in today’s world, especially in some of our national parks, where it is our national duty to keep them beautiful and healthy. Community Alliance with Family Farmers strongly supports the Lunny Family and Drake’s Bay Oyster Farm.

THIS MODERN WORLD

Dept. of Thingamajigs Last week’s illustration of Lance Armstrong raising a pill-filled trophy with syringes hanging out of his arms was not, as we had deduced after much investigation, an uncredited guerrilla public art project (“Steep Climb,” May 15). In fact, it is the work of the very talented local artist Mike Koftinow. Because some confusion persists, let it be known that we feel BottleRock was a great success against mammoth odds (“Best of the Fest,” May 15). People sucking face, free beer, dominatrixes, boyfriends eating food off the ground— all that so-called negative stuff in last week’s roundup kicks ass in our book, and makes a fun, chaotic, lively festival instead of a boring, staid, dull one.

Safety Net

Assembly bill aims to keep state hospital patients who commit assault out of county jails BY PATRICK M. KLENZ

J

udges and juries, not police officers or state hospital orderlies, decide whether or not a defendant’s mental disorder excuses the crime that person committed. Until their day in court, the mentally ill are treated by the system like any others suspected of the same crime. They go to jail.

But jail may not be the best place for forensically committed state hospital patients. Violent mentally ill patients in particular require a level of care that a small local jail cannot be expected to provide. When the jail fails to deliver that care, the consequences can prove devastating for the patients or other inmates. Now, Napa County wants the Legislature to require state hospitals to keep holding facilities

on site to detain patient-offenders. Napa County analyst Liz Habkirk argues that it’s unrealistic to expect a small sheriff’s department to carry this burden. “That’s like asking us to run a cardiac ward in the jail,” Habkirk explained. “That’s how specialized these services are.” A report adopted as part of Napa County’s legislative platform outlines the corresponding human cost. A relatively large ) 10

JAIL OR HOSPITAL? With all eyes on the case of Houston Herczog, right, a new bill would further protect the mentally ill.

A grant application by the Sonoma County Regional Parks that envisions the Occidental Community Center as an “adventure day lodge” for tourists, complete with small shuttles to Jenner, Bodega Bay and Willow Creek, has stirred up concern among some residents. A June 4 meeting has been organized to raise awareness about the “Gateway to West Sonoma County Project,” says Jacques Levy, one of the meeting’s organizers. “Many people in the community are even surprised to know about the project,” he says. There is a worry that this has been a “top-down” process with little participation from the very people who would be affected by such an ambitious undertaking, explains Levy. But Caryl Hart, Regional Parks director, says that the idea for a tourist hub is just that—one idea out of many, and only one piece of an application for technical assistance to the National Parks Service. “The Gateway is a working title for a concept that would improve recreation access for everyone to thousands of acres of public land in West County,” Hart tells the Bohemian. Nothing will happen without community input, she adds, and, with no current funding, that’s a process that will take time. Currently, the former Vets Hall is being leased from Sonoma County Parks and Recreation by the YMCA and rented out for the occasional class. A community meeting to discuss the West County Gateway Project, moderated by Eric Koenigshofer of the Bodega Land Trust, will be held on Tuesday, June 4, at the Salmon Creek School Gymnasium. 1935 Bohemian Hwy., Occidental. 7pm. For more information about the meeting, contact jacqueslevy@sonic.net. —Leilani Clark

Mentally Ill ( 9 number of mentally ill suspects ended up spending weeks or months in the Napa jail because of court delays. Across the board, these suspects spent an average of 62.2 days in jail after booking. Bereft of proper treatment for two months, a mental patient can cause a great deal of damage. The Napa report recounts a few particularly gruesome incidents in graphic detail. The report tells of one patient who tried to selfimmolate by wrapping himself in toilet paper and lighting it on fire. Another patient repeatedly smeared feces on the window of his cell to prevent correctional officers from monitoring him. Yet another opened a wound in her abdomen deep enough to fit her hand past her wrist. Napa County discovered a sponsor in a Central Coast legislator who approached the issue from a totally different perspective. Republican assemblyman Katcho Achadjian introduced AB 1340 to committee on March 14. The draft legislation would require state hospitals to build “enhanced treatment units” to detain mentally ill assailants. It also calls for the automatic and timely referral of the incident report to the local district attorney. According to staff, Achadjian introduced the bill after learning of the problem from the union that represents state hospital workers. Coby Pizzotti of the California Association of Psychiatric Technicians said his organization proposed the bill to improve hospital-worker safety. After passing through the jail, charged patients come back to the same ward worse than ever. Almost all of the state hospital patients charged with serious assaults while in treatment ended up at the state hospital after committing a crime in the first place. “Were talking about people behind the fence,” Pizzotti said. “It’s kind of a vicious cycle. The staff get beat up routinely by the same person.” The bill has begun to work its way through committee. Proponents expect challenges

facing the bill to arise over the fact that the measure will cost the state a still unknown sum in upgraded facilities. The Department of State Hospitals chose not to take a position on the draft bill at this time. Spokesman Ralph Montano declined to answer questions about the fiscal impact of requiring state hospitals to maintain holding facilities.

‘It’s a catch22 to charge them with a crime when they’re already trying to get competent.’ “Safety of our patients and employees is one of our top priorities,” Montano said. “We will continue to work with the sponsors of the bill as it moves forward.” Nevertheless, Atascadero State Hospital recently piloted a special unit to house its sickest patients and managed to do it within its current budget. Pizzotti thinks the state hospital system could find a way to implement the enhanced treatment units for patientoffenders. San Luis Obispo County, like Napa, contains a large state hospital and a relatively small jail. Undersheriff Tim Olivas said 142 Atascadero State Hospital inmates passed through the jail on new charges over the course of 11 months. He mentioned one state hospital patient who used a stashed safety razor to cut the neck of a correctional deputy who tried to extract the man from his cell. “It’s a catch-22 to charge them with a crime when they’re already at the hospital trying to get competent, and then to try and bring them through the system again,” Olivas said.

RESCUED RUSTIC Repurposed materials abound inside Shawn E. Hall’s downtown hotspot.

Design for Eatin’ Gypsy Cafe’s main-street eclectica in Sebastopol BY JESSICA DUR TAYLOR

A

few years ago, restaurant designer Shawn E. Hall was hired to rebuild the Pine Cone, Sebastopol’s longstanding diner, which had served up eggs and hash to the community for almost half a century. After gutting the interior, exposing the original brick and beams, and installing a new kitchen, Hall agreed

to help find a new owner for the space. “Designing a restaurant is like giving birth to a child and then giving it away,” Hall tells me on a recent morning. “I get into a space and I find its bones and I bring it to life. So I decided it might be fun to actually have my own restaurant.” And that’s how Hall, designer of 35 restaurants, including Hopmonk and Willi’s Wine Bar, found herself running Sebastopol’s hippest diner, the Gypsy Cafe.

First, let’s get one thing straight: all rhetorical nuances and political correctness aside, the “gypsy” refers not to the Roma people, but to Hall’s eclectic flea-market-andarchitectural-salvage aesthetic. “‘Gypsy’ is an attitude,” says Hall, who’s been re-purposing materials since “distressed” referred to someone’s state of mind, not their shabby-chic end table. In this, Gypsy Cafe is an homage to Hall’s mother, Norma, an orphan who once made a dress out of her bedspread so she could

go to the school dance, where her scalloped hem made her the belle of the ball. A self-taught designer, contractor and seamstress, and a single mother, Norma supported her daughter by renovating houses in exchange for rent. “We lived in 13 houses in eight years,” Hall tells me. “She was the first person I ever saw make a table out of a door.” (Fittingly, Hall is likely the first person most have seen make an elegant table out of an old radiator grate.) A native of Missouri, Hall earned a degree in environmental studies from UC Santa Cruz. The first restaurant she designed was a Jamaican joint called Miss Pearl’s Jam House in San Francisco, where she lived for 20 years. “I wanted to make it as authentic as possible,” says Hall, who loves to uncover the intrinsic beauty of a space. “So I went to Jamaica.” Remnants of her wanderlust can be seen all over the walls of the Main Street Sebastopol cafe, hung with old signage, blown-up photographs (a Jamaican fruit stand, a Moroccan egg cart), and gathered antiques—boxing gloves, a transistor radio, even a turquoise kiddie T-Bird. Each item tells a story—like the framed yellow crocheted doily in the shape of a pineapple (the symbol for hospitality), a gift from a customer in honor of the cafe’s first anniversary. Or the old sign that says “Draperies” hanging over the bar, given to Hall by a couple who collects antiques. “They basically ate free for a year,” she laughs. Several old doors are incorporated into the cafe’s décor, apt metaphors for Hall’s personal philosophy. “It’s about having an open door to life, being open to new experiences and cultural diversity,” Hall says. “Besides just getting sustenance,” she says, eyes twinkling, “I want people to feel like they’re on a little vacation.” Staffed by Hall’s friends and family—including her boyfriend, two best friends from college and a daughter-in-law—Gypsy Cafe breeds repeat customers, whether

they be daily locals or far-ung travelers. (Just recently, a British couple vacationing in Yountville were thrilled to ďŹ nd a great restaurant that was, as they put it, “not too posh.â€?) “We’re not highfalutin’, we’re not trying to be the best,â€? Hall tells me, “but we’re darn friendly. We will take good care of you.â€? Perhaps this is why an astounding 1,400 people have signed up to receive Hall’s weekly email newsletters, which keep people posted about upcoming events like the Tilted Shed Ciderworks pourings and the popular Friday night dinners (pot roast and fried chicken are menu favorites). But if it’s standard diner food you’re after, take note: this is no greasy spoon. Yes, all the usual suspects are on the menu— pancakes, corned beef hash, huevos rancheros, Cobb salad, a slew of burgers—but chef Martin Maigaard brings a fresh approach to the classics. Standouts include the Grits and Greens, with eggs, garlic wilted greens and bacon lardons ($12), and the Sriracha burger with pickled cabbage, limed onion and Sriracha mayo on a potato roll ($11.50). This being Sebastopol, vegan and gluten-free options abound. Running a breakfast and lunch joint in a imsy economy may seem like a fool’s gamble, but a year and a half after opening, the Gypsy continues to carry the Pine Cone’s “town cafeâ€? torch. At 10:30 on a recent Thursday morning, the place is buzzing with life; Hall greets an incoming regular, who, she mentions, always gets scrambled eggs. “My mom dreamed of having a storefront in a small town,â€? says Hall, who recently designed Mateo’s Cocina Latina in Healdsburg and is at work on the Point Reyes Oyster Bar. Though Norma died 20 years ago, her legacy clearly lives on here. “I’ve been successful thanks to my mom,â€? says Hall. “My longtime friends visit the cafe, and the ďŹ rst thing they say is, ‘Norma would have loved this.’â€?

SMALL BITES

Saison Time It’s the season for light beer. But rather than reaching for a can of Tecate, why not stretch the taste buds with a saison? French for “season,” appropriately enough, the saison is yeasty, hoppy and clean; in other words, it’s not your common light beer. The story behind this beer—and one that Randy Mosher, author of Tasting Beer, argues is not altogether accurate—is that it originated as a farmhouse ale, brewed to make the midsummer days of labor easier for farmworkers. Locally brewed saison specimens include En Suite Saison by Baeltane Brewing, a fruity and tart farmhouse ale with Champagne-like effervescence. Available at Baeltane’s tap room as well as Taps in Petaluma, it rings in the summer solstice with grace. Recently, Taps had a hopless saison from Petaluma’s HenHouse Brewing on tap, though it wasn’t to my taste. Flat and slightly grey, with little to no carbonation, it carries a sourness appealing to palates that like a challenge. HenHouse also makes a standard saison, one with all the hops and carbonation you would expect. Spiced with ginger, coriander and star anise, Anderson Valley’s Mowkeef Bahl Hornin saison (which loosely translates to “hay reaper great drink of liquor”) is the perfect poolside accompaniment to a Us Weekly and some coconut oil. Golden like the sun, it satisfies that need for something bubbly and refreshing on a hot day. Saison beers are hard to find, but Petaluma Market is a good source. Feel free to call for stock inquiries at 707.762.5464. —Leilani Clark

MacPhail Family Wines Radio-Flying into the future BY JAMES KNIGHT

Y

ou know you’re getting old when 10 years seems like, if not yesterday, not too long ago. “It’s hard to believe,” counters James MacPhail, “but 2002 was a different world.” He’s talking about Pinot Noir. MacPhail launched his brand when California Pinot was still something of an up-and-comer for many wine drinkers—two years before the movie in which the funny guy said the thing. And his Sonoma Coast and Anderson Valley vineyard sources were somewhat of a new frontier. MacPhail changed career course early on, spending the last 20 years in this industry. He was able to put up a winery on his rural lot south of Healdsburg because, back in 2007, it, too, was a different world: “I walked into the bank, and walked out with a construction loan,” MacPhail shrugs. It didn’t hurt that he got the attention of the readership of Wine Spectator, ever thirsty for new shiny things, when his whimsical Radio Flyer–inspired label appeared alongside Russian River Valley notables on the magazine’s cover. MacPhail is now partnered with the Hess Collection, and he’s winemaker for its Pinot Noir–focused Sequana brand. The compact winery is nicely designed, lets in natural light and has stones laid like parking strips in between the barrels—one of his “late night, crazy ideas” and a Burgundian homage. Fermentations are finished in barrel, and both Pinot and Chard get battonage. MacPhail is no low-alcohol leader, but the wines tasted here come across as cool, complex and “serious”—don’t blame me if you become an object of fun when you start calling wines “serious.” As for MacPhail, he suggests nothing, preferring to let tasters make up their own mind as regards raspberries, soi bois, “seriosity,” etc. On Saturdays, he hosts seated tastings around a rustic table in the cellar; otherwise, there’s a riveted-together nickel bar fronting a nook that serves as the lab. MacPhail had already dropped his Russian River Valley wines when the Spectator article came out; the 2010 “Flyer” RRV Pinot Noir ($59) is a one-off from Olivet Lane, densely stitched together with oak-smoked bacon notes, leathery plum fruit and Christmas spice. Fat with bacon, spiced with orange rind and earthy with earth, the 2010 Toulouse Vineyard, Anderson Valley Pinot Noir ($49) also sports notes of the pennyroyal herb typical to the area; the 2010 Pratt Vineyard, Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir ($49) makes me reminisce about it after each sip. Wait a few months, and you’ll be able to sample MacPhail and Sequana wines at a tasting room now being built in Sebastopol’s Barlow Center, a welcome addition to the future. MacPhail Family Wines, 851 Magnolia Drive, Healdsburg. Open by appointment only, Monday–Saturday. Tasting fee, $10. 707.433.4780.

Charlie Haden’s life in music may be best viewed as a series of concentric circles, each orbiting around the great gift he has given the world. Call it pulse, call it heartbeat, call it freedom, Haden uses his acoustic bass to find currents that have come to define schools of jazz musicians who rely more on feeling than stylistic convention. When Haden plays, he quickly gets to the essence, grounding the music powerfully and always emotionally. For the 15th annual festival,Haden, now 75 and coming off a Lifetime Achievement Grammy Award and designation as an NEA Jazz Master, brings with him several of those career concentric circles for a two-day celebration of his genius. Thanks in part to an NEA Arts Works grant, more than 20 musicians—some going back decades with Haden—will perform at the Jackson Theater in Santa Rosa. Haden’s career began in Shenandoah, Iowa, when at 2 years old he began singing folk and country songs on the radio with his family. When polio damaged his vocal cords at age 15, he took up the acoustic bass. Seeking experience in jazz, he moved to Los Angeles in 1957. It was a chance encounter with a young unknown eccentric playing a plastic saxophone that put into motion the band that flung the jazz world on its heels. His name was Ornette Coleman and he ignited a spark that already lived inside Haden—one that said improvisation could be about following the melody and spirit of a song, not just chord changes and bar lines. After years with Coleman and later with pianist Keith Jarrett, Haden embarked on an unusual project that brings us now to Healdsburg. In 1969 the bassist hired pianist/composer Carla Bley to arrange music for a big-band project largely about the Spanish Civil War, called Liberation Music Orchestra (LMO). Over the decades he would always find new musicians to recharge LMO. At Healdsburg on Sunday, June 2, he will do it again, with some of the artists who played on the last LMO album, 2005’s Not in Our Name, and a few new additions. The personnel includes Haden and Bley; saxophonists Chris Cheek, Chris Potter and Loren Stillman; trombonist Curtis Fowlkes; drummer Matt Wilson; tuba player Joseph Daley; trumpeters Seneca Black and Michael Rodriguez; French horn player Vincent Chancey and Bill Frisell on guitar. LMO will be the climax of the festival’s first-weekend tribute to Haden. Before that there will be lots more of those concentric circles. Astonishing Cuban-born pianist Gonzalo Rubalcaba will start off Sunday, playing solo. In between that and LMO will be Haden’s children—singing triplet daughters Petra, Rachel and Tanya, and bassist son Josh—all in various combinations with Bill Frisell. Saturday, June 1, features beguiling pianist Geri Allen, playing solo and in duet with the much-celebrated saxophonist Chris Potter. Next up is the 85-year-old alto sax legend Lee Konitz in a quartet with Alan Broadbent on piano, Darek Oles bass and Matt Wilson, drums. The day’s climax comes courtesy of the other band to which he has been most dedicated. Quartet West is Haden’s love letter to Los Angeles, the city that gave him his start in jazz and that fed his imagination via Hollywood. The hard-driving quartet consists of Haden, pianist Alan Broadbent, drummer Rodney Green and saxophonist Ravi Coltrane filling the shoes usually worn by Ernie Watts. The festival wild card is Haden himself, who in recent years has unfortunately been stricken by an ailment tracing all the way back to the polio that attacked him in the ‘50s. Called post-polio syndrome, it has weakened him and affected his ability to swallow and speak. He is still playing the bass, though, and vows to as much as possible during the festival. Should he miss a few moments, the formidable Darek Oles (a.k.a. Oleszkiewicz), a former student of Haden’s, will stand in.

That’s a philosophy shared by his organ player, Wil Blades, a

self-taught prodigy of the Hammond B-3. Silky tenor sax man Joe Cohen and New Orleans-styled drummer Brandon Etzler rounds out this funky jazz quartet.

Fred Hersch is the type of pianist who can express more in five seconds of note choices than most pianists can summon in an entire concert. And in each of those five seconds you’ll be panting for what’s coming next. At the keyboard he is like a master jeweler cutting a diamond, each stroke creating a new and dazzling refraction of light and shadow. Not a flamboyant

player, Hersch is more pithy than pyrotechnical, more in the mode of Monk and Strayhorn than Tatum or Tyner. With minimal movement he delivers maximal swing. With his sidemen John Hebert on bass and Eric McPherson on drums, Hersch pretty much defines what a piano trio is in the 21st century.

Iconic saxophonist/flautist Charles Lloyd and pianist Jason Moran have teamed up for a magnificent duet album called Hagar’s Song, and the Healdsburg Jazz Festival will be the site of their exclusive U.S. performance in 2013. At 75, Lloyd has reached a new creative peak, and there’s no question that Moran is a huge part of it. Hagar’s Song is centered on Lloyd’s five-part evocation of his great, great grandmother, Hagar, born into slavery and kidnapped from her parents at

10. On the the CD, Lloyd also situates himself and Moran in the family of American musicians Duke Ellington, Billy Strayhorn, George Gershwin, Earl Hines, Bob Dylan and Brian Wilson. The playing is so deeply felt on “Mood Indigo,” “Bess, You Is My Woman Now,” “I Shall Be Released,” “God Only Knows” and others that the connection becomes tangible, sealed by the empathy Lloyd and Moran have for each other after now playing together for six years.

They drew material from African chanting and African American gospel, spirituals, jazz, blues and folk to sing songs about justice, tragedy, greed, life and love. Now 40 years on, Sweet Honey in the Rock is a living repository of American history, interpreted by women, imprinted in black. The women in the group combine their powerful voices to celebrate change, creating joy in the process. They sing of water and earth and the human beings connected to those elements—the stuff of life. Sweet Honey in the Rock will make the festival finale a day of exultation in Healdsburg. When John Coltrane’s classic quartet split up around 1966, the pianist McCoy Tyner and the drummer Elvin Jones sought to assemble their own groups. The challenge for them was finding horn players who could deal with the kind of energy they were used to putting out—and receiving. Luckily they found Azar Lawrence. The saxophonist, who is leading a quartet with festival favorite, drummer Billy Hart, bassist Henry Franklin and pianist Theo Saunders on Healdsburg’s final Sunday. Franklin and Saunders are mainstays of the L.A. scene who have worked with dozens of jazz greats.

Though it’d be tempting for him to become a family tribute act, Jimmie Vaughan, older brother to guitar legend Stevie Ray Vaughan, has retained his own style. He also offers something novel: good music to dance to. Growing up in Dallas, Vaughan credits his abilities to hearing vintage blues, classic rock ’n’ roll and jazz at an early age—not to mention the radio stations in his area. “I never got over that stuff,” Vaughan once said, “and I never will.” Hear Vaughan play the blues on Friday, May 24, at Hopmonk Tavern. 230 Petaluma Ave., Sebastopol. 707.829.7300. $45. 8pm.

What is an “A-List Conversation”? And more importantly, how does one have one? Those who’ve kept up with Bruce Macgowan know; this week, the uninitiated can discover just what these epic pow-wows are all about as Macgowan sits down with Michael Krasny. It might seem strange—Krasny is the longtime KQED host who usually discusses art, culture, health, business and technology, while Macgowan has a strong background in sports writing and broadcasting. Who knows what topics may arise on Wednesday, May 29, at 142 Throckmorton Theatre. 142 Throckmorton Ave., Mill Valley. $12–$15. 7:30pm. 415.383.9600.

Although he’s toured with Aretha Franklin and Etta James, James Hunter still continues to play shows at small venues, just like he did starting out in London. Hunter’s style is so unique that even Van Morrison took notice and sang backup vocals on his songs “Turn on Your Love Light” and “Ain’t Nothing You Can Do.” The energy delivered by Hunter’s new group, the James Hunter Six, is more than most bands half their age. See the Grammy-nominated singer on Saturday, May 25, at Sweetwater Music Hall. 19 Corte Madera Ave., Mill Valley. $22. 8pm. 415.388.3850.

Preservation Hall in New Orleans is where a love of jazz can be felt in every room. The dedicated musicians of the Preservation Hall Jazz Band work to bring some of this feeling to every venue they play. Although the group’s lineup has changed throughout the years, the spirit of Preservation Hall is unchanged. With a long roster of Dixieland classics, the Preservation Hall Jazz Band plays on Thursday, May 23, at the Napa Valley Opera House. 1030 Main St., Napa. $30–$100. 8pm. 707.226.7372.

Stage

ll My Sons was Arthur Miller’s first Broadway success as a playwright, and its brilliance and beauty are still clear after 66 years. But in live theater, a play is only as good as its presentation. Hobbled by some unclear direction and generally weak acting, a new production at Ross Valley Players—despite an occasionally strong lead performance by Craig Christiansen—ultimately fails to capture the power, or much of the authenticity, of Miller’s play.

done well, with a skilled cast up to the challenges of Miller’s rich, multitextured language, All My Sons can be devastating. Under the direction of Caroline Altman, who’s had success in the world of opera—and whose best ideas are the pop musical interludes between scenes—RVP’s uninspired staging is consistently flat. Joe Keller (Christiansen) is a force of nature. A self-educated man, he built his own manufacturing empire through hard work and a canny sense of business. Three years after his son Larry, an Air Force pilot, disappears in World War II, Joe finds himself caught between the desperate hopes of his wife, Kate (Kristine Ann Lowry), who insists that Larry is still alive, and his other son, Chris (Francis Serpa), who announces his plans to marry Larry’s former fiancée, Ann (Amber Collins Crane). Hanging over everything are the wartime deaths of 21 pilots, whose planes crashed due to faulty equipment manufactured by Joe’s factory. While many in the town suspect Joe of having knowingly sold the damaged parts to the military, it is his longtime business partner Steve— Ann’s father—who is serving a prison sentence for the crime. As written, revelations unfold slowly, almost casually, at first, but the intensity picks up with the arrival of Ann’s brother George (Philip Goleman), a lawyer who believes he has evidence proving that Joe let Steve take the fall for his own mistake. Ann, too, has a secret she’s been keeping, and it has the power to turn everything the family believes upside down. Miller’s carefully crafted writing, in RVP’s version, is washed out by a lot of unmodulated hollering, made worse by a number of unfortunate line readings indicating that the actors don’t always understand what their characters are saying. That’s a shame, because in All My Sons, Arthur Miller is saying a lot. Rating (out of 5): ++

The post-WWII setting of the early masterpiece, driven by Miller’s piercing questions about morality and business during wartime, carries a strong contemporary resonance. When

‘All My Sons’ runs Thursday–Sunday through June 16 at Ross Valley Players. 30 Sir Francis Drake Blvd., Ross. Thursday at 7:30pm; Friday– Saturday at 8pm; 2pm matinees on Sundays. $22–$26. 415.456.9555.

No Escape

This summerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s movies all have a dark streak of reality BY RICHARD VON BUSACK

A

curdled version of â&#x20AC;&#x153;America the Beautifulâ&#x20AC;? plays in the trailer for the homeinvasion thriller â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Purgeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (June 7), and some kind of equally subtle political allegory can be discerned in the gated community taken to outer space in â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Elysiumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (Aug. 9), which depicts a have-not/got-more civil war in the year 2154. The executive mansion gets it yet again in â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;White House Downâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (June 28). Escapism keeps getting harder to ďŹ nd, even in summer moviesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and this year, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re darker than ever. The previews for â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Man of Steelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (June 14) reveal that our hero (Henry Cavill) is a war refugee and that the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sâ&#x20AC;? on his mighty chest is actually a Kryptonian rune for â&#x20AC;&#x153;hope.â&#x20AC;? This potential Obamaism may trigger wails of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Benghazi!â&#x20AC;? among loyal right-wingers, even if in Man of Steel the cryptoreligious origin story is once again rehashed. Russell Crowe plays the godly Jor-El, while Kevin Costner appears as a corn-fed St. Joseph

to the immaculate superhero. Through youthful confusion, Superman rises to face the Hitler of Krypton, General Zod (Michael Shannon). Ad astra per aspera. Joss Whedon used to encourage impromptu Shakespeare readings during rehearsals for Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and in that tactic lies the basis of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Much Ado About Nothingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (June 7), a low-budget Shakespeare adaptation featuring modern dress, presented in blackand-white and shot in the spurious Tuscany of Santa Monica hillside mansions. Amy Acker from TVâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Angel makes a witty Beatrice, with Alexis Denisof as a sarcastic Benedick determined not to marry (â&#x20AC;&#x153;thrust the neck into a yoke, wear the print of it, and sigh away Sundaysâ&#x20AC;?). Simply colossal, and perhaps rekindling the love of super-robots that Michael Bay tainted in three lousy Transformer movies, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;PaciďŹ c Rimâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (July 12) is fantasy creator Guillermo del Toroâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s marriage of Japanese kaiju with a plot seemingly pilfered from John Wyndhamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 1953 novel The Kraken Wakes. An alien enemy nested in the oceans repelled with skyscraper-size battle robots called â&#x20AC;&#x153;jaegersâ&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x201D;itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s big, big, big.

Film

Bright-but-not-brittle director Noah Baumbach (The Squid and the Whale) collaborates on â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Frances Haâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (May 17) with the ever-rising Greta Gerwig, who was last glimpsed in the most recent Woody Allen ďŹ lm. She co-writes this comedy about a hapless New Yorker who wants to be a dancer. Gerwigâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s persisted through a string of half-baked indie movies. She ought to be a star by now, and Frances Ha may ďŹ nish the job. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;World War Zâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (June 21), directed by Marc Foster, may either be the ďŹ&#x201A;op that ďŹ nally ends the zombie craze or sparks a whole new round. Brad Pitt plays a U.N. investigator piecing together accounts of the global conďŹ&#x201A;ict. Rewrites galore have plagued the project, so the only certainty is that the ďŹ lm has Pitt and several hundred million zombies. Maybe itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the graveyard wit, maybe itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the campiness, maybe itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the attention to glowing ďŹ ne surfaces in the era when the digital changeover is making for a lot of ugly movies, but Pedro AlmodĂłvar is one of the few directors who makes completionists out of the hardest to please. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m So Excitedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (June 28) follows a damaged and seemingly doomed plane of fools headed for Mexico City in an airborne allegory about the horrors of the Spanish economy. For years, the sweet, bizarre and convulsive Kristen Wiig supported the entire cast of Saturday Night Live on her shoulders. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Girl Most Likelyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (July 19) is described as Wiigâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s passion project. She plays a cracked-up boomerang girl bounced off the New York theater scene who moves in with her mean mom (Annette Bening) and her momâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mendacious pal (one of the underrated funny ones, Matt Dillon). Finally, director Rick Rowleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Dirty Warsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (June 7) documents Jeremy Scahill, the journalist investigating the Joint Special Operations Command, which tracks and kills terrorists from Yemen to Central Asia . . . or people who to our best knowledge are terrorists . . . or people who were driving in a truck that was the same make of truck that a sought terrorist was known to drive . . . or people who were just in the wrong tent at the wrong time.

Warehouse Stories

‘Out of Order’ a massive graffiti street-art show with over 40 artists BY GABE MELINE

T

he guy on the sidewalk sizes me up.

“You from the Boho?” he asks. “Yeah,” I say, as he swings around and opens the door. I pass a cluttered lobby, and then walk into the biggest graffiti art show Santa Rosa has ever known, with over 40 artists collaborating on the walls of a vacant 4,000-square-foot downtown warehouse. “I’ll go get him,” the guy says, disappearing past numerous cans of the spray paint and Mickey’s variety, and I’m left with the aroma of aerosol in the expansive, highceilinged space, its walls covered in huge, beautiful murals. “Hey,” says Roman D’Argenzio, the curator of this wholly unique exhibit, “Out of Order,” extending a hand. “Thanks for coming.” I should thank him. “Out of Order” has been the county’s bestkept art secret for months now, and only after my visit will the address of the show be released. Combining the clandestine hush-hushness of a rave and a DIY mentality of a punk-house show, “Out of Order” has already obtained sizable underground

cachet; today’s sneak preview while the floors are still sticky and the art still unfinished is rare. And with its staggering array of artists and breadth of style, the show more than delivers on its buzz. From floor to ceiling, it’s like reading an issue of Juxtapoz in real time. Today, atop shaky scaffolding, Julia Davis puts outlines on a group of cannibalistic fish; in a nearby corner of the warehouse, Jared Powell evaluates a mural populated with misplaced eyeballs. Around the corner from a Ricky Watts mural are two more artists—but they don’t want to be mentioned in the paper. Standing in the center of all this, a show four months in the making, D’Argenzio allows himself a bit of satisfaction. “I’m proud of the whole thing,” he says. “I’m proud of how it all meshed into one piece and all the artists respected each other. So many artists came in here not knowing what to expect, and a lot of them were blown away.” Some of the murals depict animals—there’s a two-eyed raven overlooking a vortex; a breastfeeding wolf; a black-andwhite terrier; an Andre-theGiant-sized cat lovingly cradling

‘Out of Order’ opens and closes on Saturday, May 25, at the former Santa Rosa Printing building. 575 Ross St., Santa Rosa. 4:30pm–midnight.

Art

a fish; owl-like birds by the artist known as Berds. Still others depict a comic-book-type fantasy: monsters, dildoes, naked women, Obama with his face ripped off, skulls, zombies. At a show like this, even a nominally trite U2 lyric, “We must carry each other,” takes on an elevated meaning on a large hallway wall surrounded by work from mostly struggling artists. D’Argenzio is 26, with brawn beyond his years: a thick beard, plugs in his earlobes and a serious mind about art. A don of vacant buildings in Santa Rosa, he enjoys the cooperation of his father, real estate manager Dino D’Argenzio, who lets Roman utilize otherwise unused spaces. Until recently, he and partner Jimmy Hits filled these spaces as Kaleidoscope, a monthly transient party with DJs, breakdancers and live art. When D’Argenzio put Kaleidoscope to bed, this building—the former Santa Rosa Printing warehouse—opened up. His ideas began to churn. He made some calls. And once word got around, participation began to snowball. D’Argenzio met all the artists here, let them in, and sometimes, as in the case of two artists from Oakland, picked them up from the bus stop, brought in some mattresses and gave them free food and beer for two days while they worked. It’s the least he could do. “I didn’t give anybody any paint, I didn’t pay anybody, the whole show’s free,” he says. “All the artists are donating their time, paint and creativity.” All in all, “Out of Order” is legitimizing an oft-maligned art form—sometimes called “street art,” sometimes called “mural art,” all of it stemming from the graffiti world. On the eve of the opening, D’Argenzio takes delight in knowing the show will change people’s minds. “This is one of the most beautiful things I’ve seen in Santa Rosa,” he says, looking up at the walls. “When people come in, they’re blown away. My mother was, like, stunned.”

Heart and Soul John Gorka delivers powerful folk at the Grange In his show at the Sebastopol Grange this weekend, John Gorka will probably get the loudest response from “People My Age,” a funny little tune about the vagaries of time and its effect on one’s flesh in middle age. But not all of the world’s responses are audible. Through his more to-the-heart songwriting, Gorka is a master of eliciting the silent gasp. “If I Could Forget to Breathe,” “If These Walls Could Talk” and especially the sublime “Love Is Our Cross to Bear” are all Gorka at his earnest, honest best. Even his political material, such as “Ignorance and Privilege,” is rooted in deeply personal experience. Gorka’s one of those solo guitarists who sounds like he’s playing two guitars at once, and one of those storytellers who can make you forget that another song is coming up again soon. The Sebastopol Grange is the perfect rural place to see him turn an “Oooh” into an “Ewww.” Don’t miss it on Friday, May 24, at the Sebastopol Grange Hall. 6000 Sebastopol Ave., Sebastopol. 8pm. $25–$27. www.northbaylive.com. —Gabe Meline

Astrology

BY ROB BREZSNY

For the week of May 22

ARIES (March 21â&#x20AC;&#x201C;April 19) â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m still learning,â&#x20AC;? said Michelangelo when he was 87 years old. For now, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s your patron saint. With his unďŹ&#x201A;agging curiosity as your inspiration, maybe your hunger for new teachings will bloom. You will register the fact that you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t already know everything there is to know . . . you have not yet acquired all the skills you were born to master . . . youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re still in the early stages of exploring whole swaths of experience that will be important to you as you become the person you want to be. Even if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not enrolled in a formal school, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to take your education to the next level. TAURUS (April 20â&#x20AC;&#x201C;May 20) Nobel Prizewinning physicist Richard Feynman admitted that physicists canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really deďŹ ne â&#x20AC;&#x153;energy,â&#x20AC;? let alone understand it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have no knowledge of what energy is,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We do not have a picture that energy comes in little blobs of a deďŹ nite amount.â&#x20AC;? While itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unlikely that in the coming weeks you Tauruses will advance the scientiďŹ c understanding of energy, you will almost certainly boost your natural grasp of what energy feels like both inside and outside of your body. You will develop a more intuitive knack for how it ebbs and ďŹ&#x201A;ows. You will discover useful tips about how to make it work for you rather than against you. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re already a pretty smart animal, but soon youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll get even smarter. GEMINI (May 21â&#x20AC;&#x201C;June 20) Giant sequoias are the biggest trees on the planet. Many are more than 300 feet tall and 30 feet wide. Their longevity is legendary, too. They can live for 2,000 years. And yet their seeds are tiny. If you had a bag of 91,000 seeds, it would weigh one pound. I suspect thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s currently a resemblance between you and the giant sequoia, Gemini. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re close to acquiring a small kernel that has the potential to grow into a strong and enduring creation. Do you know what Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m talking about? Identify it. Start nurturing it. CANCER (June 21â&#x20AC;&#x201C;July 22)

Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take yourself too seriously. The more willing you are to make fun of your problems, the greater the likelihood is that you will actually solve them. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re blithe and breezy and buoyant, you will be less of a magnet for suffering. To this end, say the following afďŹ rmations out loud. 1. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m willing to make the mistakes if someone else is willing to learn from them.â&#x20AC;? 2. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sorry, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not apologizing any more.â&#x20AC;? 3. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Suffering makes you deep. Travel makes you broad. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d rather travel.â&#x20AC;? 4. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My commitment is to truth, not consistency.â&#x20AC;? 5. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The hell with enlightenment, I want to have a tantrum.â&#x20AC;? 6. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I stopped ďŹ ghting my inner demons. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re on the same side now.â&#x20AC;?

LEO (July 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;August 22) Would you buy a stuffed bunny or a baby blanket that was handcrafted by a prisoner on death row? Would you go to a cafe and eat a sandwich that was made by an employee who was screaming angrily at another employee while he made your food? Would you wear a shirt that was sewn by a 10-year-old Bangladeshi girl who works 12 hours every day with a machine that could cut off her ďŹ ngers if she makes one wrong move? Questions like these will be good for you to ask yourself, Leo. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important for you to evaluate the origins of all the things you welcome into your lifeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and to make sure they are in alignment with your highest values and supportive of your well-being. VIRGO (August 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;September 22) Having good posture tends to make you look alert and vigorous. More than that, it lowers stress levels in your tissues and facilitates the circulation of your bodily ďŹ&#x201A;uids. You can breathe better, too. In the coming weeks, I urge you to give yourself this blessing: the gift of good posture. I encourage you to bestow a host of other favors, too. Specialize in treating yourself with extra sweetness and compassion. Explore different ways to get excited, awaken your sense of wonder and be in love with your life. If anyone calls you a self-involved narcissist, tell them youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re just doing what your astrologer prescribed. LIBRA (September 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;October 22) The German word Fernweh can be translated as â&#x20AC;&#x153;wanderlust.â&#x20AC;? Its literal meaning is â&#x20AC;&#x153;farsicknessâ&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;an ache for the

distance.â&#x20AC;? Another German word, Wandertrieb, may be rendered as â&#x20AC;&#x153;migratory instinctâ&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;passion to travel.â&#x20AC;? I suspect urges like these may be welling up in you right now. You could use a break from your familiar pleasures and the comforts youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been taking for granted. Moreover, you would attract an unexpected healing into your life by rambling off into the unknown.

SCORPIO (October 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;November 21)

We call it â&#x20AC;&#x153;longing,â&#x20AC;? says poet Robert Haas, â&#x20AC;&#x153;because desire is full of endless distances.â&#x20AC;? In other words, you and the object of your yearning may be worlds apart even though you are right next to each other. For that matter, there may be a vast expanse between you and a person you consider an intimate ally; your secret life and his or her secret life might be mysteries to each other. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the bad news, Scorpio. The good news is that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in a phase when you have extraordinary power to shrink the distances. Get closer! Call on your ingenuity and courage to do so.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22â&#x20AC;&#x201C;December 21) Are you ready to go deeper, Sagittarius? In fact, would you be willing to go deeper and deeper and deeper? I foresee the possibility that you might beneďŹ t from diving in over your head. I suspect that the fear you feel as you dare to descend will be an acceptable trade-off for the educational thrills you will experience once youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re way down below. The darkness you encounter will be fertile, not evil. It will energize you, not deplete you. And if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re worried that such a foray might feel claustrophobic, hear my prediction: In the long run it will enhance your freedom. CAPRICORN (December 22â&#x20AC;&#x201C;January 19) In the course of his 91 years on the planet, artist Pablo Picasso lived in many different houses, some of them rentals. When inspired by the sudden eruption of creative urges, he had no inhibitions about drawing and doodling on the white walls of those temporary dwellings. On one occasion, his landlord got upset. He ordered Picasso to pay him a penalty fee so that he could have the sketches painted over. Given the fact that Picasso ultimately became the bestselling artist of all time, that landlord may have wished heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d left the squiggles intact. In every way you can imagine, Capricorn, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be like that landlord in the coming week. AQUARIUS (January 20â&#x20AC;&#x201C;February 18)

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was often in love with something or someone,â&#x20AC;? wrote Polish poet Czeslaw Milosz. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would fall in love with a monkey made of rags. With a plywood squirrel. With a botanical atlas. With an oriole. With a ferret. With the forest one sees to the right when riding in a cart. With human beings whose names still move me.â&#x20AC;? Your task, Aquarius, is to experiment with his approach to love. Make it a fun game. See how often you can feel adoration for unexpected characters and creatures. Be infatuated with curious objects . . . with snarky internet memes . . . with ďŹ&#x201A;eeting phenomena like storms and swirling ďŹ&#x201A;ocks of birds and candy spilled on the ďŹ&#x201A;oor. Your mission is to supercharge your lust for life.

PISCES (February 19â&#x20AC;&#x201C;March 20)

Scientists in Brazil discovered a huge new body of water 13,000 feet beneath the Amazon River. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s completely underground. Named the Hamza River, it moves quite slowly, and is technically more of an aquifer than a river. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s almost as long as the Amazon, and much wider. In accordance with the astrological omens, Pisces, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m making the Hamza River your symbol of the week. Use it to inspire you as you uncover hidden resources. Meditate on the possibility that you have within you a secret reservoir of vitality that lies beneath your well-known sources. See if you can tap into deep feelings that are so deep youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been barely conscious of them.
