‘Share the road’ is a two-way street BY TOM GOGOLA

A

s a lifelong cyclist, I live by one rule when it comes to automobiles: assume every car is driven by a careless idiot, and get out of the way whenever possible.

It seems to me that the main point of getting on your bike isn’t to wave the embattled flag of “bike culture” but, simply, to have an enjoyable, stress-relieving ride. So why are there so many road-ragers out there on bikes? The Point Reyes Light recently ran a letter from an older man who reported some really obnoxious treatment at the hands of a group of well-heeled young bicyclists on fancy machines, riding many abreast over the bridge leading out of town. The lads were “victimized” by a car horn, and, like a squad of oafish reactionaries straight off the Cliven Bundy ranch, they descended on the man with a threatened beat-down. And in April, the 40-year-old founder of Iron Data software, Jeffrey Smock, had a bike-rage blowout with a 55-year-old in a pickup at a busy Mill Valley intersection. Smock allegedly beat the man bloody, and he’s looking at a felony assault charge. Really, dude? I give bikes their three feet of clearance, no problem—I’ve been buzzed, boxed-in and hit by enough cars to know how nerve-wracking it is when motorists speed by, inches from your handlebars. But “Share the Road” means share the road. It doesn’t mean “I’m going to play chicken-entitlement games with the nearest fool who swerves onto the shoulder.” When a driver gives that three feet on a twisty portion of, say, Sir Francis Drake on a Saturday morning—that driver is risking a head-on collision so he doesn’t hit you. When there are four of you riding abreast, and you refuse to line up single-file—that’s just transferring the nerve-wrack to drivers, and why would you want to do that? So stop treating every bike ride as a Critical Mass throwdown. This isn’t the Second Battle of Ypres. It’s a nice day, and everyone should enjoy the ride. In exchange, I’ll turn my attention to that tailgating menace in the Audi—instead of worrying about you. Tom Gogola is news editor for this paper. 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.

Carrillo Must Go There have been many opinions voiced regarding Sonoma County Supervisor Efren Carrillo, his actions and his behavior. As a citizen and taxpaying resident of Sonoma County, I am also an observer of elected officials and the system of justice they are charged with administering, and the fact that Carrillo is still a county supervisor is appalling to me.

Although he was found “not guilty” by a jury, in his own words Carrillo admittedly violated laws and a woman’s rights. His unacceptable criminal acts have accelerated, as this was not his first arrest. Were he not a political flunky and running dog for the big-money barons of Sonoma County, he would have been found guilty on charges of attempted breaking and entering, attempted sexual battery, public drunkenness, lewd behavior and being a “peeping Tom.” He would have been sitting in prison and not conducting business as usual.

position, be it by vote, by censure, or by whatever means necessary. Besides the irrefutable fact that he committed these disgusting acts which he has admitted to, he is an embarrassment to the entire community, including the Latino community in the district he is supposed to represent.

The struggle for civil rights and equal representation without discrimination has been and continues to be a long one and a hard one. Carrillo was given a wonderful opportunity to represent and be a role model for young people of all colors and ethnicities. Yet he chose to act and behave like the oppressive ruling class. Efren Carrillo should be removed at once!

ELBERT ‘BIG MAN’ HOWARD Santa Rosa

Editor’s note: Elbert Howard is a founding member of the Black Panther Party, and an author, lecturer and community activist in Sonoma County.

One Shot

All these violations of the law—as well as violations of the public trust, requests for him to step down, and public condemnations—have failed to get the board of supervisors to remove him. With Carrillo still carrying on as a supervisor, this says to the taxpayers of this county, “We are just fine with a public servant doing whatever the hell he wants, to whomever he wants, no matter what it is, including criminal behavior, because observing the law does not apply to him.”

In “The One Shot Solution” (May 7), it is very confusing to hear all of this conversation on the apparent extreme difficulty of coming up with a way to carry out humane executions. I’m not endorsing the act of killing somebody to show them how dreadfully wrong it was to kill somebody; I’m only addressing the tons of media exposure about which chemical cocktail to use. What with our ability to come up with drugs that will do just about anything we desire, why is this seemingly simple thing such a challenge?

Doesn’t “Jane Doe” deserve equal protection under the law? When a woman, despite calls to 911 for assistance, is not safe from being terrorized by a drunk, sexually perverted politician, it is time to practice selfdefense. Law enforcement officers in this county are very quick to shoot down an innocent child but slow to act to protect community members who are in danger.

Every veterinarian has the chemicals and skill to humanely put down any kind of domestic animal. Why does humanely “putting down” a human animal have to be any different? Every day we hear about people who died of accidental overdoses of various drugs. If these drugs are so effective when used accidentally, why not apply them where needed in this case?

Carrillo should be removed from his

ago, the anesthesiologist explained to me the importance of care in administering the general anesthetic. He said that a little too much would put me to sleep permanently. Isn’t this what we’re looking for? Instead of a complicated, three-component “cocktail,â€? why not a single injection that simply induces a gentle but permanent sleep? Will somebody please explain this in simple terms, without ďŹ ltering the discussion through the usual bureaucratic and political nonsense? I bet I’m not the only one wondering.

SKIP THOMSEN Forestville

Bad Match I was one of several candidates for the Assembly two years ago. I endorsed Marc Levine in the general election because I foolishly resented Michael Allen being “superimposed� on Marin by the assembly leadership, although he

reected my issues near perfectly. My mistake. Marc Levine went on to represent big agriculture and big oil, and turned out to be a bad match for the people of Marin and Sonoma. Conservatives might cheer Levine’s corporate clients, but fracking and shipping Northern California water to huge corporate farms in Central California are not truly conservative positions; they are the hopes of a greedy few. I am voting for Diana Conti because we need a State Legislature that really cares about the needs of California’s people, not an extension of the U.S. Congress which openly disdains working people and downright hates the poor.

THE

Paper

DEBR IEFER Ravitch, Run Are activists involved in the Andy Lopez shooting utilizing a rampthe-hysteria, rumor-as-news tactic more associated with irresponsible right-wing news outlets? Late last week, Debriefer noticed an uptick in rumors being floated about when Sonoma County District Attorney Jill Ravitch would decide on whether to charge sheriff’s deputy Erick Gelhaus, who shot Lopez while he brandished a toy weapon. The gist of the rumors: it’s imminent. But according to a Ravitch spokesperson, the rumors were launched by an activist attorney. This was part of an effort to push Ravitch’s hand on a decision fraught with controversy. Ravitch faces a June 3 election, and critics have accused her of stonewalling on Gelhaus until after the votes are counted. She denies the stonewalling.

DRY AS DUST California’s ongoing drought could cost the state’s agriculture industry $1.7 billion.

Dry Food

And then the weekend came. No charges, no nothing.

California’s drought could jack national food prices BY CLIFF WEATHERS

F

or the first time in 15 years, all of the Golden State suffers from a water shortage, and while that’s very bad for the region, it may also send food prices skyrocketing throughout the country. An April study from Arizona State University said the price of lettuce could jump by as much as 34 percent; the price of a single

avocado is estimated to rise by some 28 percent, to $1.60. “You’re probably going to see the biggest produce price increases on avocados, berries, broccoli, grapes, lettuce, melons, peppers, tomatoes and packaged salads,” says ASU agribusiness professor Timothy Richards in a statement. Meanwhile, a study released by the UC Davis Watershed Sciences Department on May 19 said the drought would cost the state’s ag economy $1.7 billion.

The rumor push coincided with breathless news reports that the city of Santa Rosa was on edge in anticipation of Ravitch’s imminentnot-imminent ruling. Protests were planned unless she ruled now. Talks of a riot were in the air. Federal mediators were brought in.

Gov. Jerry Brown declared a state of emergency in January when it became clear that 2013 closed out the driest year ever for many parts of the state. The U.S. Drought Monitor, a weekly map of drought conditions produced jointly by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Department of Agriculture and the National Drought Mitigation Center at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, says that the entire state suffers

The Ravitch spokesperson said she hadn’t heard anything about when her boss’ decision might actually come down, despite the rumors. She said she’d call Debriefer when there’s some actual news.

Bo-Gasser A drunken driver took out the gas pumps at the only fill-up station in Point Reyes Station last week, meaning that if you were on the coast and low on petrol, your only hope for days and days was Bolinas—where a gallon would set you back an eye-popping $5.65 for premium grade.

Drought ( 10 from conditions ranging from “abnormally dryâ€? to “exceptional drought.â€? The heavy-population centers all suffer from “extreme droughtâ€? or “exceptional drought.â€? The drought is hitting the farm industry. Fresno County, the No. 1 farming county in the nation, may lose up to a quarter of its orchards and ďŹ elds this year for lack of water. The UC Davis study estimated 14,500 Central Valley farm jobs would be lost to the drought. The state’s farmers will leave about 800,000 acres idle this year, according to estimates by the California Farm Water Coalition, which will negatively impact the state’s entire economy. As a result, consumers can expect to pay more at the grocery store for a range of staple foods. Richards notes in a statement that between 10 and 20 percent of some crops will be lost to the drought—and that California produces the highest yield of the crops most at risk, especially avocados. The Arizona study has gotten some pushback from local ag experts, as it highlighted an expected jump in grape prices of up to 50 cents a pound. That price jump has yet to be seen, says Napa Valley Grapegrowers executive director Jennifer Kopp Putman. “Napa grape prices are stable this year. All contracts I’ve seen show no big increase.â€? Grocers will typically try to replace California produce with other sources in a pinch, which makes it “hard to really determine the extent to which consumer pricing is affected because of a drought,â€? says Sandy Elles, executive director of the Napa County Farm Bureau. Elles adds that Napa wine grapes got a “very lucky reprieve with the late seasonal rainsâ€? this year.

That was shocking enough—and Debriefer could not ďŹ nd a higherpriced gallon of gas anywhere else in the U.S. But even more jarring was seeing the word “Bolinasâ€? on electriďŹ ed roadside signage, in the form of temporary highway signs warning drivers in West Marin that their only chance for a fuel-up was at BoGas—located in a town famous for repeatedly removing all state signage that would point you there. The state eventually gave up on the Bolinas signs, and the temporary one along the Nicasio Reservoir was gone by Tuesday morning. Proceeds from BoGas sales go to a local community land trust, which, ironically, uses the money generated by insanely high gas prices for affordable housing programs in town.

Fracking Suspense The Senate Appropriations Committee on Monday pushed Sen. Holly Mitchell’s fracking moratorium bill, SB 1132, to the so-called suspense ďŹ le, where bills with costs exceeding $150,000 are sent. Bills that wind up in that ďŹ le, says the state website, “are then considered at one hearing after the state budget has been prepared and the committee has a better sense of available revenue.â€? A 2010 op-ed by Thad Kousser, in the L.A. Times, called for an end to the use of the suspense ďŹ le. “They should make the legislative game fair to both parties by eliminating the obscure but important procedures governing the ‘suspense ďŹ le,’â€? Kousser wrote, “which give legislative leaders the power to kill, without a public vote, bills that a majority of legislators might support.â€? A recent Sacramento Bee story put it a little more bluntly: “The Appropriations Committee’s suspense ďŹ le is often the place where bills go to die.â€? Check www.bohemian.com for updates.—Tom Gogola

Dining CHOCOLATE FACTORY St. Helena’s Culinary Institute of America offers tastes of its chocolate creations to the public.

Dark Secrets Inside the CIA’s chocolate laboratory

T

he Culinary Institute of America at Greystone is not exactly a hidden gem; its striking edifice looms off the St. Helena Highway. But there is one aspect of the world-renowned culinary school for which it’s not as well known: chocolate. In the newly dedicated Ghirardelli Chocolate Discover

Center at the CIA’s St. Helena Campus last week, baking and pastry graduate Katryana Zide was shaping chocolate truffles while describing the steps in the process. First she makes ganache, which, as she explains, is “basically chocolate mixed with any liquid.” Often it’s cream in a 2–1 chocolate-to-cream ratio; the CIA uses Ghirardelli and other brands of chocolate depending on the desired flavor. Then the liquid mixture is scooped into a pastry bag and squeezed out into what

BY NICOLAS GRIZZLE look like bulky brown meringues. After those have cooled, they’re rolled by hand into balls and allowed to rest again before the final rolling. Those are then dipped in chocolate (to maintain the confection’s desired shape) and allowed to cool. The final step involves another chocolate dip, this time to get a harder outer shell, and any additional toppings like sea salt or flower petals. Ganache is really the heart of the truffle, and this is where the

magic happens. The liquids mixed in determine flavor and, to some extent, consistency. Alcohol works especially well—not because this turns a decedent treat into sneaky way to get a buzz, but because the alcohol binds with the fat in the ganache (and it can taste pretty good too). Zide is a fan of savory-sweets, and loves to experiment with new ideas. One that works well, she says, is sage—but it changes the flavor in an unexpected way. There are also truffles made with pine or fir, giving a holiday essence that fits surprisingly well with chocolate. Lemon verbena, on the other hand, did not work, though Zide couldn’t figure out why. If a particular chocolate concoction sounds too weird to be good, chances are that’s the best one to try. It might end up being just a gimmick, but when I gave the blue-cheese truffle a shot at CocoaBella Chocolates in San Francisco, it wound up being the best chocolate I’ve ever had (until someone adds salty bacon dust to the top of it—then we’ll have a new champion). Chocolates infused with savory flavors like cardamom, rosemary and fennel are fairly common as well. Back in the recently renovated tasting room, which is open to the public, truffles in the dramatically lit display case shone like brown diamonds. I chose a 71 percent dark chocolate rectangle—the silky, low-tannin Cabernet Sauvignon laid a bed of deep fruit for the chocolate to melt onto my tongue. Another chocolate, the circular, rose-infused dark chocolate topped with a mauve candied rose petal, detonated its floral intensity in the back of my sinus, like I had been instantly transported into the middle of a giant rose garden. The tasting experience is only heightened by watching students make the elegant confections in the next room over, leading one to wonder what their next new creation might be.

To Gary from Wendell Before Michael Pollan became the conscience of American diners, there was Wendell Berry. In fact, there still is Wendell Berry. Berry began writing about the importance and beauty of a style of farming that worked in harmony with the natural world long before farm-to-table and sustainable agriculture became buzzwords. The elder statesman of the good food movement is still telling it like it is with signature grace and lyricism from his Kentucky home. Long ago he formed an epistolary friendship with Pulitzer Prize–winning poet, environmentalist and Buddhist Gary Snyder. From 1973 to 2013, they wrote more than 240 letters to each other. Those letters on spirituality and philosophy form the basis of a new book by the two men of letters, Distant Neighbors: The Selected Letters of Wendell Berry and Gary Snyder. Berry and Snyder will be appearing June 27 at 7pm at Copperfield’s Books in Petaluma to read from their book and discuss food, the environment and spirituality. It’s a rare chance to hear from two men who have had such a deep impact on American intellectual life. Tickets go on sale May 21.

at sister winery Esterlina, orange cheese puffs are served for palate cleansing between sips of exclusive Cole Ranch Riesling and big, soft and fruity reds. Plus, inexpensive, solid and sassy “Diablita” rocks screw-capped bottles of Sonoma County Red, White, Pink and Zin. Dandy view can be enjoyed from the tasting room or the patio. 435 West Dry Creek Road, Healdsburg. Open daily, 10am–5pm. Tasting fee, $15. 707.433.1637.

Gary Farrell The namesake is gone but the quality remains. Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. 10701 Westside Road, Healdsburg. Open daily, 11am–4pm. 707.473.2900.

John Tyler Wines For decades, the Bacigalupis have been selling prized grapes to the likes of Chateau Montelena and Williams Selyem. Now, the third-generation wine growers offer the pick of the vineyard in their own tasting room, brandnew in 2011. Graceful Pinot and sublime Zin. 4353 Westside Road, Healdsburg. Open dail,y 10:30am–5pm. Tastings $10. 707.473.0115. Moondance Cellars Dogs, Cabs and cars are the focus; when a supercharged 1965 Corvette is parked in front, the vintner is in the house. Also, Port and Sherry from Sonoma Valley Portworks. 14301 Arnold Drive, Glen Ellen. Daily 11am–6pm. $5 tasting fee. 707.938.7550.

Rued Winery Folks been

farming grapes here since 1880s; the best bottomland Sauvignon Blanc and benchland Zinfandel and Cabernet skimmed from the family’s 160 acres of grapes is offered at comparatively farmstand prices. 3850 Dry Creek Road, Healdsburg. Open daily 11am–4:30pm. Tasting fee $5. 707.433.3261.

Spann Vineyards Ninety percent of Spann wines are distributed out of state, leaving a little aside for this off-thePlaza tasting room. Malbec, Mourvedre and Mayacamas Cab; the take-home bargain is a $20 blend. Photography gallery adds visual interest. 111 E. Napa St., Sonoma. Open daily, noon–6pm. Tasting fee. 707.933.8343.

Thumbprint Cellars Vegan wines named Arousal, Threesome and Four Play; but it all started out innocently enough. Downtown lounge offers curvaceous bar, hookah-den-styled booth, and seasonal nosh. 102 Matheson St., Healdsburg. Open 11am to 6pm Sunday– Thursday, to 7pm Saturday. Tastings $5–$10; with food pairing, $10–$20. 707.433.2393.

Friday– Sunday 11am–5pm. $10 fee. 707.542.3292.

N A PA CO U N TY Bennett Lane Winery The old trope “beer-drinking NASCAR fans vs. Chardonnaysipping highbrows” runs out of gas at a winery that sponsors an annual NASCAR race and has its own car, emblazoned with grapes. A Roman emperor who appreciated hearty vino

as much as a good chariot race inspired Maximus White and Red “feasting wines.” 3340 Hwy. 128, Calistoga. 707.942.6684.

Corison Winery Winemaker Cathy Corison proudly describes herself as a “Cabernet chauvinist.” 987 St. Helena Hwy., St. Helena. By appointment. 707.963.0826.

Del Dotto Vineyards (WC) Caves lined with Italian marble and ancient tiles, not to mention Venetian chandeliers and mosaic marble floors. They host candle-lit tastings, replete with cheese and chocolate, Friday–Sunday. Opera resonates until 4pm; rock rules after 4pm. 1055 Atlas Peak Road, Napa. By appointment. 707.963.2134.

Krupp Brothers Estates The story of Stagecoach Vineyards is of extremes: two miles end-toend. One billion pounds of rock extracted. Seventy wineries buy the fruit; the Krupps release 2,000 cases including Black Bart Marsanne. 3265 Soda Canyon Road, Napa. Tours by appointment, $25. 707.260.0514. Tasting at A Dozen Vintners, 3000 Hwy. 29, St. Helena. Daily, 10am-5pm. 707.967.0666.

Robert Biale Vineyards Was it the high scores that attracted the horde, or the excellence of the wine? It’s a chicken-and-egg type of question, but “Black Chicken” is neither chicken nor egg; it’s a bottle of Zinfandel. 4038 Big Ranch Road, Napa. By appointment daily, 10am– 4pm. Tasting fees $20–$35. 707.257.7555.

Storybook Mountain Vineyards (WC) Jerry and Sigrid Seps and a few likeminded winemakers founded Zinfandel Advocates and Producers (ZAP), through which they continue to proselytize on behalf of “America’s heritage grape.” 3835 Hwy. 128, Calistoga. By appointment. 707.942.5310.

BonnĂŠ arrived in California in the midst of “the dark days,â€? he says, when the forces of what he calls “big flavorâ€? dominated the scene. Producers had to make big, highly extracted wines or be punished by influential critics whom BonnĂŠ obliquely refers to as “one or two people who seemed to count to 100 very well.â€? As wine editor for the San Francisco Chronicle, however, he could not sit back and snipe at “Cali fruit bombs,â€? as the sneer goes. He went into the vineyards and discovered winemakers Ted and Heidi Lemon of Sebastopol’s Littorai, grower David Hirsch from the West Sonoma Coast region’s Hirsch Vineyards, and footstomping duo Duncan Arnot and Nathan Roberts. Onstage at Healdsburg’s SHED, Nathan Roberts says that their Clary Ranch Syrah, which has more of a green olive than a blackberry savor and hardly tops 12 percent alcohol, “can be a little bit polarizing—people get it or don’t, and that’s fine.â€? Is there a risk that promoting the virtues of the “new Californiaâ€? might be seen as a setup for putting down those who may not “getâ€? the wines? BonnĂŠ says that it’s surely a fool’s errand to try to tell people what they should like. “I knew going into writing this book that I’d be targeting wines that a lot of people are fans of,â€? he says later in a phone interview. Besides, he’s not against exuberant wines, per se— the problem is that cult wines that lead the trends for others are rewarded only for their sheer horsepower. “If I’m paying $150 for a bottle of wine,â€? he says, “I want it to taste like it’s from somewhere.â€? BonnĂŠ says he’s pleased with the book’s reception so far. “People are talking about California in a different and much more positive way,â€? the author says. “And that’s all that I could have hoped for.â€? Illustrated by Santa Rosa documentary photographer Erik Castro, the textbook-like tome covers wide-ranging topics including dry farming. Also a practical guide to exploring the wineries BonnĂŠ discusses, the book is peppered with “three bottle tours.â€? Here’s one of our own: Arnot-Roberts 2010 Sonoma Valley Old Vine White Blend ($35) Heady tropical fruit, spice and apples, but zippy, limey, dry. Hirsch 2012 Sonoma Coast Chardonnay ($55) Instead of buttered oak, here’s dried pineapple and vintage brut-ish linens. Intriguing—just don’t say Burgundian (Hirschian?). Anthill Farms 2010 Tina Marie Vineyard Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir ($44) Bright, deep rosĂŠ, infused with tea, both hibiscus and black; a no-cherries zone, not without charm.

alifornia is just now becoming a mature wine culture, according to author Jon BonnĂŠ, who was in Healdsburg recently to lead a panel discussion with local winemakers who appear in his book, The New California Wine. “What’s happening now,â€? BonnĂŠ asserts, “is as important as what happened 40 years agoâ€?—at the Paris tasting of 1976.

Ten Things to Know About BottleRock Napa Valley 2014 1. New promoter L38, which bought the rights to BottleRock from the bankrupt BR Festivals group, is made up of local Napa investors who have pledged to make good on old debts. 2. Speaking of local, a full one-third of the bands playing this year are from the Bay Area, with nearly a dozen North Bay bands representing the local scene. 3. That said, festival headliner the Cure are making their first Northern California appearance in six years, and their only U.S. live date this year until September. This could be the last time Robert Smith’s hair appears in Napa. 4. The festival this year is partnering up with local hotels and offering free shuttles to and from parking lots to help ease congestion. There will also be plenty of bicycle parking on hand. 5. Another step L38 is taking will mean that everyone needs to get there early. Shows end at 10pm, to accommodate noise complaints that followed last year’s event. 6. The event is going to get a new layout. Stages and vendors will be placed in different areas throughout the expo center and grounds, to allow for quicker crowd flow and less cross noise between stages. 7. The best of the North Bay’s local food scene, from Morimoto Napa to Three Twins Ice Cream, is on hand once again to offer bites and libations through the weekend. Craft beer gardens, wine cabanas and spirited full bars will also be dotted around the grounds. 8. Fewer VIP passes are being sold this year, but reportedly there are more perks that come with them. Sadly, a meet-and-greet with the Spin Doctors is not included. If you do want the meet-and-greet treatment, there are always Platinum level tickets for $3,000. 9. If you don’t have cash to burn, discount tickets are becoming available, but you have to search them out on sites like Livingsocial.com. Prices on the festival’s site are still fixed. 10. Bring the kids! Up to two children under eight are admitted at no charge with each ticketed adult. www.bottlerocknapavalley.com.—Charlie Swanson

PlumpJack’s ‘Ultimate Wine Country Experience’ A trip to Napa Valley usually involves wine, food and, if you’ve got the time, a night or two in the high-thread-count sheets of a plush hotel or lodge. Because the PlumpJack Group is something of a vertically integrated company, with wineries, restaurants, hotels and resorts, they can offer an inclusive package that includes a little something from all the above. The company is offering resident tourists and out-of-area visitors a posh package they call the “ultimate wine country experience”: a night in a “harvest cottage” at the Carneros Inn (complete with a fire pit, alfresco showers and a soaking tub for two), a private tour and tasting of either PlumpJack Winery, the LEED gold-certified CADE winery or the Stags Leap District’s new Odette Estate Winery (which features 18,000 square feet of caves) and a six-course tasting menu for two at FARM restaurant. The cost starts at $1,285 and runs on Wednesday and Thursday from now through December, excluding August and September. So for a summer getaway, that means now through July.—Stett Holbrook

Cochon Heritage Fire If I had to pick one food event to attend this summer it would be the fourth annual Cochon Heritage Fire on Aug. 3. There is nothing like it. This meat orgy at St. Helena’s Charles Krug Winery will feature more than 30 chefs and 40 winemakers, breweries and cider makers in a celebration of fire-grilled, responsibly sourced meat—beef, chicken and pork, but also goat, lamb, squab, duck, thresher shark and spit-roasted sturgeon. A portion of ticket sales will benefit the St. Helena Farmers’ Market and the American Institute of Wine & Food. A pop-up butcher shop will donate all proceeds to students of the Culinary Institute of America at Greystone. Be sure to fast for a few days before the event so you’ll be ready for a full day of eating. Tickets start at $100. Go to www.cochon555.com for more information.—Stett Holbrook

HARP HERO A big part of blues master Charlie Musselwhite’s musical education came from record bins in junk stores.

Blues Come Alive Hall of Famer Charlie Musselwhite headlines this year’s Healdsburg Jazz Fest BY CHARLIE SWANSON

T

he blues is still alive and well,” says Charlie Musselwhite.

The beloved harmonica player and singer ought to know. He has lived the blues for more than 50 years, and now the Sonoma

County resident and recent Blues Hall of Fame inductee appears as the guest of honor at the 16th annual Healdsburg Jazz Festival starting May 31. Musselwhite reflected recently on his move to Sonoma County, his storied career and the creative

pairings that have led to his immense success. “I came out from Chicago. That’s a long trip—Mississippi to Memphis to Chicago to California,” recounts Musselwhite. “I came in ’67 to play some gigs and thought that I would just be

going back to Chicago when I got through, but I had never been to California and didn’t know anything about it, really. And when I came out here, I just saw how wonderful it was, how nice the people were and how there was work all up and down the coast. When I got off the plane in California for the first time, it took me about 10 minutes to think, ‘I ain’t going back to Chicago.’ “It seemed like people really liked blues. They seemed to think it was something exotic, where back in the South and Chicago, it’s just an everyday thing. All the hippies were playing me on the radio. They weren’t playing me on the radio anywhere else.” After living all around the Bay Area, Musselwhite moved to Sonoma County more than 20 years ago. “There’s just a long list of things that are wonderful about Sonoma County. Pick one of ’em,” he laughs. “I love the people, I love the food. I love the consciousness of the people. You go to the farmers market and get to buy the food you eat from the guy who grew it.” This year, Musselwhite headlines the Healdsburg Jazz Festival, which opens with the weekend-long Blues Bash. “I’m glad to see that blues will be at the festival. Seems like back in the day, all jazz festivals had a blues day or a blues stage, but somehow it dropped off,” says Musselwhite. “I’m glad to see that blues will be at the festival, ’cause jazz came from blues. If we haven’t got blues, we haven’t got jazz.” Musselwhite launches the festival with a performance alongside guitar legend Elvin Bishop and country crooner Guy Davis. “They’re both friends of mine. I’ve known Elvin—we both lived in Chicago a long time,” recalls Musselwhite. “He came to Chicago from Tulsa and )

I came from Memphis; we met in Chicago way back in the early ’60s and have been friends 50 or more years. And we still look exactly the same! To be onstage playing with an old friend, that’s real special,” he says. “I mean, a lot of people we started out with are no longer here. We’re both healthy, doing good. It’s almost like a celebration of life or something.” Following this, Musselwhite switches gears with a blues-meetsLatin-jazz performance based on his acclaimed 1999 album, Continental Drifter. Musselwhite says the album and his fascination with Cuban standards started all the way back in Memphis. “When I was a kid in Memphis, I was really interested in blues. I was going all around to junk stores and used furniture stores—any place that had old records. And I was looking for blues records, but anything else I found that looked interesting, I’d get that too,” he says . “Along the way there I discovered other music from around the world, like flamenco, rebetiko music from Greece, and I discovered a lot of Latin music too. I got the feeling, or the opinion, that every culture had some kind of music that was from the heart, music of lament, like blues. If you translate the lyrics from all these different styles of music from around the world, they’re all singing the same thing—‘My baby left me.’ Hard times, and good times too. It’s really music from and of the people.” He discovered a Cuban band called Cuarteto Patria and became a big fan. At a music festival in Norway, he met a promoter who also loved the band; he later invited Cuarteto Patria and Musselwhite to the following year’s festival. Musselwhite thought it would be great to sit in with the band and record it. He found a local studio to do it, and the Continental Drifter album was born. “So now I’ll be able to recreate that [album] with the John Santos Group, and they’re great musicians, and he’s a great guy;

we have a good time. We’ll have so much fun performing this, the audience can’t help but have fun.” Musselwhite will also appear in two other performances with saxophonist Joshua Redman, sitting in with Redman’s jazz quartet and inviting Redman to sit in with his own ensemble, all while intertwining jazz and blues elements that speak in the universal language of life’s joys and laments. In 2010, Musselwhite was honored with an induction into the Blues Hall of Fame, and earlier this year he won a Grammy for Best Blues Album for his collaboration with singer-songwriter Ben Harper on Get Up! “I met Ben a long time ago when he opened for John Lee Hooker. John Lee was an old friend, and he’d often call me up to say, ‘Come on down and play with us tonight.’ Our paths just kept crossing here and there, and we just got to know each other better and better, and then we also backed up John Lee on a recording in the studio, and that’s where we really locked in and realized how well we played together. We had a rapport musically. Even John Lee said, ‘You guys ought to do more recording together.’” Musselwhite says there is already talk of another record with Harper. After all these years playing the blues, Musselwhite’s love for music still burns bright, and the harmonica master still has too many irons in the fire to say for sure what’s next. In the meantime, he’s honored to be a part of the upcoming Healdsburg Jazz Festival and to share his passion with his local community. “Don’t let the term ‘blues’ fool you,” he says. “This isn’t sad music; this gets rid of that feeling. This is uplifting music. You can dance or you can listen, and if you’re really talented, you can do both. It’s all about having a good time.” Charlie Musselwhite is featured at the Healdsburg Jazz Festival’s twoday ‘Celebrating the Blues’ event, Saturday–Sunday, May 31–June 1. Jackson Theater, 4400 Day School Place, Santa Rosa. 7:30pm. $45–$75. www.healdsburgjazzfestival.org.

SKY HIGH LIAR Zack Howard stars in Spreckels’ ‘Catch Me If You Can.’

Catch This Play Gene Abravaya’s adaptation of ‘Catch Me’ sings BY DAVID TEMPLETON

I

n Catch Me if You Can: The Musical, a teenager takes (too literally) the advice that you can be anything you want to be if you only try—and he ends up serving five-to-10 in prison.

But first he sings and dances. In this surprisingly serviceable adaptation of the popular Steven Spielberg film of the same name, Catch Me if You Can, based on a true story, is both lighthearted and deadly serious. Now playing at Spreckels Performing Arts Center in Rohnert Park and directed by Gene Abravaya, the snappy production features a trio of notable lead performances, and a supporting ensemble of singers and dancers— including a semi-bumbling trio of FBI agents—who nicely capture the spirit and tone of this’60s-era cat-and-mouse game.

‘Catch Me If You Can’ runs Thursday– Sunday through May 25 at Spreckels Performing Arts Center. 5409 Snyder Lane, Rohnert Park. Thursday, 7:30pm; Friday–Saturday, 8pm; 2pm matinees on Saturday and Sunday. $22–$26. 707.588.3400.

Frank Abagnale Jr. was a clever kid who soaked up the questionalbe life lessons of his yarn-spinning dad, all while watching television shows about successful pilots, doctors and lawyers. From such sources, Frank learned how to walk and talk like a confident, experienced professional, and before he was old enough to drink, he’d successfully passed himself off as an airline pilot, an emergency room doctor and a prosecuting attorney— passing a lot of fake and forged checks along the way and stealing over $2 million before he was finally caught by the FBI. Played by Zach Howard, whose excellent voice and flirty stage presence is perfect for the role, Frank isn’t exactly the most sympathetic of characters. After all, he lies compulsively and steals without remorse. But there’s a likable element to his brash and fearless creativity, and Howard’s appealing manner helps sell that. As the overworked FBI fraud investigator Carl Hanratty, David Yen brings a hard-boiled worldweariness to the difficult role of the guy who will catch our “hero” in the end. As good as he is in the straight-laced scenes, those moments where Yen gets to let loose, to sing and dance, are sheer delights. But it’s Kelly Brandeberg, as the sweet-natured nurse who wins Frank’s larcenous heart, who steals the show with the love song “Fly, Fly Away,” performed with such sincerity and skill you have to believe that Frank might actually be worth loving that much. With leads that are perfectly cast, a visually clever set design and a story that maintains a sense of humor and heart amid all the twists and turns, Spreckels’ Catch Me If You Can is worth catching— while you can.

Embodiment: The Art of Being in Your Body This workshop is designed to mindfully guide participants through the deeply healing process of creating a life-sized Body Being Painting expressing their authentic, divine, mythical selves. Are you feeling bold? No experience necessary. Register by May 15.To register contact Amy Sullivan (arttxamy@gmail.com) $225. Some supplies provided. Questions? Call Amy at 650.455.2145 Amy Sullivan, MFT, is an artist, therapist and healing guide. Suzanne DeVeuve is a local artist of the mystical divine & the wisdom of nature.

Simon (Jesse Eisenberg) encounters a new kid on his block, socially adept, able to climb the rungs of his job and better at charming the pants off Hannah (Mia Wasikowska ), the girl Simon can only peer at from his window via telescope, as if she were a heavenly body. As Hannah, Wasikowska has the advantage of being the glowing spot of beauty in a realm of ruin and constant aggressivenessâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;viciousness from the top (the smiling overlord played by James Fox) all the way down to a harsh waitress (Cathy Moriarity) and a useless male nurse (Chris Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Dowd) If Ayoadeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s main aim was to create a visually fascinating realm, consider it done. Visually, the movie honors the memory of Wellesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Trial, with David Crankâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s production design being especially impressive. The two Eisenbergs work in an office laden with obsolete, dysfunctional equipment, including malicious elevator doors that bite and squawk a red alert if you kick them back. The lighting makes everyone look jaundiced or cancerous, and transportation is provided by a rattle-trap subway. The quaking, quacking Simon is under constant assault, falsely promised happiness from fulsome Japanese pop hits, even as his ass is thoroughly kicked by all around him. As heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s told at one point, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re pretty unnoticeable, even for a nonperson.â&#x20AC;? The Double comes off as being more admirable than likable. Maybe part of the problem is that Eisenberg has two personalities when the rest of the cast barely have one each. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Doubleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; is now screening at the Rialto Cinemas, 6868 McKinley Ave., Sebastopol. 707.525.4840.

Huichica Festival is Dirty Projectors’ David Longstreth.

Indie Folk Fest Eclectic music on tap at Huichica

BY CHARLIE SWANSON

A

mong the many star-studded fests around the Bay Area this summer, one winery in Sonoma Valley is prepping for a weekend of musical up-and-comers and relevant taste-makers at the fifth annual Huichica Music Festival at Gundlach Bundschu Winery on June 13–14.

Gundlach Bundschu sits on the site of the historic Rancho Huichica (pronounced “we-chica”), named by Mexican general Mariano Vallejo. After 150 years of producing distinctive wines, Gun Bun recently became a destination for great music, hosting unique acts in their outdoor amphitheater. One such act was the band Fruit Bats. In 2009, bandleader Eric D. Johnson approached Gun Bun owner Jeff Bundschu about starting up an annual festival. That idea snowballed into one of the

Music

most dynamic musical events of the summer, and this year boasts a lineup of exciting, eclectic acts and vendors that includes a cornucopia of North West talent and taste. “I wanted to create an experience that would be as fun for the musicians as it is for the fans, and where the barriers between the two weren’t so big, literally and metaphorically, “ says Johnson. “I like to think of [Huichica] as less a music festival than a party for everyone there.” Headlining the event is David Longstreth, the frontman of Brooklyn experimental indie-rock outfit Dirty Projectors. The singer, guitarist and driving force behind the Projectors’ idiosyncratic and deeply personal music recently branched out from the critically acclaimed band, playing shows alongside string quartets and reworking arrangements of Hungarian composer Béla Bartók. The most intriguing name at the festival might be the lo-fi, enigmatic Mount Eerie, formed a decade ago in Washington state by songwriter and sound sculpture Phil Elverum. The music of Mount Eerie ranges from acoustic musings to industrial metal to droning vintage organs and synths. Also on the bill is a plethora of San Francisco–based acts like folk rockers Vetiver, singer-songwriter Kelley Stoltz and bedroom-pop band Light Fantastic, in addition to appearances by classic folksinger Michael Hurley, the Cairo Gang, Houndstooth and several others. Festival founder Johnson will serve up up DJ sets and music from his latest solo project, EDJ. In addition to the tasty music, Huichica will feature food and libations from Bunk Sandwiches and Deshutes Brewery from Portland, Salumeria deli and Craftsman and Wolves patisserie from San Francisco, and Napa’s Rancho Gordo.

For the week of May 21

ARIES (March 21-April 19) I believe your persuasive powers will be stronger than usual in the weeks ahead. The words coming out of your mouth will sound especially interesting. I also suspect that your intelligence will get at least a temporary upgrade. The clarity of your thoughts will intensify. You will see truths you have been blind to in the past. Innovative solutions to long-running dilemmas are likely to occur to you. The only potential snag is that you might neglect to nurture your emotional riches. You could become a bit too dry and hard. But now that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve warned you of that possibility, letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hope you will take steps to ensure it wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t happen. TAURUS (April 20May 20)

If there was a Hall of Fame for scientists, physicist Isaac Newton (1642â&#x20AC;&#x201C;1727) would be the charter member. He was like Elvis Presley and Chuck Berry were to rock and roll, like Babe Ruth was to baseball. The theory of gravity and the three laws of motion were his gifts to the world. He made major contributions to mathematics and optics, and was a central ďŹ gure in deďŹ ning modern science. There is also a legend that he invented the cat door, inspired by his pet felines. Whether or not thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s true, it serves as an excellent metaphor for this horoscope. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an excellent time for you to apply your ďŹ nest talents and highest intelligence to dream up small, mundane but practical innovations.

GEMINI (May 21â&#x20AC;&#x201C;June 20) During the next 12 months you will have exceptional opportunities to soak up knowledge, add to your skill set and get the training you need to pursue interesting kinds of success in the coming six to eight years. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the best way to prepare? Develop an exciting new plan for your future education. To get in the mood, try the following: make a list of your most promising but still unripe potentials; meditate on the subjects that evoke your greatest curiosity; brainstorm about what kinds of experiences would give you more control over your destiny; and study three people you know who have improved their lives by taking aggressive steps to enhance their proďŹ ciency. CANCER (June 21â&#x20AC;&#x201C;July 22) The moon shows us a different phase every 24 hours, which makes it seem changeable. But in fact, not much actually happens on the moon. It has no atmosphere, no weather, no wind, no plant life, no seasons. There is some water, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all frozen. Is there anything like this in your own life, Cancerian? Something that on the surface of things seems to be in constant motion, but whose underlying state never actually shifts or develops? According to my analysis, now would be an excellent time for you to revise the way you understand this part of your world, and then update your relationship with it.

LEO (July 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;August 22) Have you thought of organizing a crowdfunding campaign to boost your pet project or labor of love? I suggest you get serious about it in the next four weeks. This coming phase of your cycle will be a favorable time to expand your audience, attract new allies and build a buzz. You will have a sixth sense about how to wield your personal charm to serve your long-term goals. More than usual, your selďŹ sh interests will dovetail with the greater goodâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;perhaps in unexpected ways. VIRGO (August 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;September 22) Years ago I had a Virgo friend who was a talented singer. She had technical skill, stylistic ďŹ&#x201A;air and animal magnetism, making her worthy of being a lead vocalist in almost any great band. And yet when she was asleep and had dreams of performing, she often found herself standing in the shadows, barely visible and singing tentatively, while her back-up singers hogged the spotlight at center stage. Moral of the story: Some of you Virgos are shy about claiming your full authority. It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always come easy for you to shine your light and radiate your power. And yet you can most deďŹ nitely learn to do so. The coming weeks will be an excellent time to make progress in this direction.

LIBRA (September 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;October 22) â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is always an enormous temptation in all of life,â&#x20AC;? writes Annie Dillard, â&#x20AC;&#x153;to diddle around making itsy-bitsy friends and meals and journeys for itsy-bitsy years

on end . . . I wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have it. The world is wider than that in all directions, more dangerous and bitter, more extravagant and bright.â&#x20AC;? Your assignment in the coming weeks, Libra, is to transcend whatever is itsybitsy about your life. The alternative? Head toward the frontier and drum up experiences that will thrill your heart and blow your mind.

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

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are all searching for someone whose demons play well with ours,â&#x20AC;? writes novelist Heidi R. Kling. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good advice for you to keep in mind these days, Scorpio. Those little imps and rascals that live within you may get you into bad trouble if they feel bored. But if you arrange for them to have play dates with the imps and rascals of people you trust, they are far more likely to get you into good trouble. They may even provide you with bits of gritty inspiration. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s that you say? You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have any demons? Not true. Everyone has them.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22â&#x20AC;&#x201C;December 21) â&#x20AC;&#x153;When people tell you who they are, believe them,â&#x20AC;? writes blogger Maria Popova (Brainpickings.org). â&#x20AC;&#x153;Just as importantly, however, when people try to tell you who you are, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe them.â&#x20AC;? Those suggestions are especially crucial for you to keep in mind these days. You are entering a phase when your best relationships will be up for review and revision and revitalization. To foster an environment in which intimacy will thrive, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to be extra receptive, curious, tolerant and tender. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all! Not hard, right? A good place to start is to proceed as if your allies know who they are better than you doâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;even as you ask them to return the favor.

CAPRICORN (December 22â&#x20AC;&#x201C;January 19) â&#x20AC;&#x153;Kludgeâ&#x20AC;? (pronounced â&#x20AC;&#x153;kloojâ&#x20AC;?) is a slang word that refers to a clumsy but effective ďŹ x for an engineering problem. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a cobbled-together solution that works ďŹ ne, at least temporarily, even though it is inelegant or seems farfetched. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s use this concept in a metaphorical way to apply to you. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m guessing that you will be a kludge master in the coming days. You will be skilled at making the best of mediocre situations. You may have surprising success at doing things that donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come naturally, and I bet you will ďŹ nd unexpected ways to correct glitches that no one else has any idea about how to ďŹ x. AQUARIUS (January 20â&#x20AC;&#x201C;February 18)

I hesitate to compare you to your fellow Aquarian Kim Jong-il. When he was alive and ruling North Korea, he was an egomaniacal tyrant. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re deďŹ nitely not that. But there are certain descriptions of him in his ofďŹ cial biography that remind me of the kinds of powers you may soon exhibit. He was called the Great Sun of Life and Highest Incarnation of Revolutionary Comradely Love, for instance. Titles like that might suit you. It is said that he invented the hamburger. He could command rain to fall from the sky. He once shot 11 holes-in-one in a single round of golf, was a master of gliding down waterslides and never had to use a toilet because he produced no waste. You may be able to express comparable feats in the coming weeks. (Do it without falling prey to excessive pride, OK?)

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

Even if you had a sensitive, nurturing mommy when you were growing up, and even if she continues to play an important role in your life, now would be a good time to learn how to mother yourself better. You are ďŹ nally ready to appreciate how important it is to be your own primary caregiver. And Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m hoping you are no longer resistant to or embarrassed about the idea that part of you is still like a child who needs unconditional love 24/7. So get started! Treat yourself with the expert tenderness that a crafty maternal goddess would provide.
