How good it is to know that investigative reporting is still alive, at least at the Bohemian. Gretchen Gilesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; recent â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Ombudsmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Complaintâ&#x20AC;? (May 6) is a remarkable piece of journalism in this day and age. Our current age of electronic media seems to make it easier for some to â&#x20AC;&#x153;inventâ&#x20AC;? themselves, to by-pass the traditional expectation of integrity and ethical behavior. Losing the assurance that what is printed in the paper is accurate information undermines the goal of an informed public. Truth does matter. Admitting past shortcomings is never easy, and I think it is even harder in print. You did it with great style. Thank you for that. Also a thank you to Beth Bosk of Mendocino County for contacting you and expressing her concerns. Here is hoping that KZYX will soon follow your lead. Better late than never. Hopefully, they also recognize that truth matters.

Re: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Big-Box Healthâ&#x20AC;? by Jessica Dur (Open Mic, May 6). What an amazing writer! This well-written piece of fact, opinion, humor, reality, insight and information has me filled with gratitude that such a clinic is available for the uninsured! Aside from that, this was enjoyable reading! Gifted writers who take ordinary events and express them using extraordinary talent, painting pictures of everyday events with their wordsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;well, let me just acknowledge that it is an art, a God-given treasure.

A43F>>3A064 Every time I drive down Highway 101, I feel myself fill with a sense of rage. If you happen to be cruising along the freeway, you are bound to notice the construction underway from Healdsburg to Steele Lane in Santa Rosa but this isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fueling my rage. Next time youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re driving along, take a gander to your right. Some may not notice anything abnormal, but for those who do, you will be appalled just as I am. Due to the freeway widening project, dozens of redwood trees have been removed from the

perimeter of the freeway. Many of these trees have been here for well over a 100 years, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve stood the test of time, yet in one swift swoop they were gone. And for what reasons have we committed this atrocity? So we can merely accommodate more cars on the already clogged freeway, cars that will inevitably continue to pollute the planet? Does anybody see the irony in this situation? Carbon dioxide is the primary pollutant in the atmosphere, much of which is derived from cars. As fate will have it, trees and plants are one of few things that can help eliminate carbon dioxide from the environment. It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make sense to remove the trees so we can put more cars on the freeway when our planet is on the brink of catastrophe. As the destruction has already been, I can only learn to control my anger, hope that those trees will be replaced and, as global warming becomes more evident, trust people will become wiser about their future decisions.

34?C>5F0H74H Gretchen Giles, editor of the North Bay Bohemian, finds it to be her great pleasure to announce that Gretchen Giles, editor of the North Bay Bohemian, is one of just 12 writers in the (whole! entire!) United States of America to be chosen to attend the first International Arts Journalism Institute in the Visual Arts sponsored by the National Endowment for the Arts and the U.S. State Department. Twelve other journalists and writers from the Middle East, Northern Africa, Asia and other countries will also participate in this immersion program based at Washington, D.C.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s American University June 11â&#x20AC;&#x201C;26. We hasten to add that this is the third time that a Bohemian staffer or contributor has been honored in this way. In 2006, freelance theater reviewer David Templeton was selected to attend the NEA Arts Journalism Institute in Theater and Musical Theaterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 10-day intensive training at USC at the Annenberg School for Communication. In 2007, thenâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;staff writer Patricia Lynn Henley was invited to participate in the Addiction Studies Program for Journalists, part of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Substance Abuse Policy Research Program Conference, as a result of her excellence in covering methamphetamine abuse in the North Bay. Gretchen Giles, editor of the North Bay Bohemian, is pretty darned proud of us all.

A lawsuit at the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Press Democratâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; illuminates the schism between print and new media, local papers and corporate headquarters By Jim McCaffrey

0

nyone who is a regular reader of the Santa Rosa Press Democrat has to have noticed that the once robust flagship of Sonoma County media is shrinking like Saran Wrap in a bonfire. That the staff has been laid off like auto workers. That advertising is running out like tourists from Mexico. As if there isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t already enough bad news for the paper, on March 30 two former employees filed suit against the Press Democrat in Sonoma County Court Superior Court. Regardless of whether their allegations are upheld, the picture they paint shows that confusion and tension over how to manage news resources at the PD

y B74470=0CBBD continues more than a year after the two women separated from the paper. What the lawsuit additionally makes clear is that the online and print sides of the PD have coexisted more than uneasily. One PD source who asked to remain unnamed described the two sides of the operation as dual towers with no bridge between them. Leigh Behrens, who before hiring on the PD in 2006 was a hotshot web administrator for the Chicago Tribune, and Laurie Barton, who was a web editor and content manager for the Los Angeles Times and the Orange County Register before her 2007 PD gig, are suing the Press Democrat and its parent company, the New York Times, along with senior PD editors, managers and publisher Bruce Kyse for, among other things, gender harassment, sex-

based discrimination, retaliation, pregnancy discrimination and wrongful discharge. Among Behrensâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; complaints are that emails from reporters sent with PD managementâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s implied consent called her a racist. Behrens and Barton also claim that senior editorial staff, after specifically being directed not to publish news of the sports blog PDPreps.com, published the news anyway just to offer a â&#x20AC;&#x153;fuck youâ&#x20AC;? to the two. (The complaint says â&#x20AC;&#x153;F.U.â&#x20AC;?) The women further charge that PD managing editor Bob Swofford and other male managers physically and verbally intimidated and insulted them. Behrens claims that men in the newsroom gossiped in emails that she was having an affair with publisher Kyse and that the affair was the reason for her success. %-

Furthermore, Barton says that on Feb. 5, 2008, Swofford was so angry with her handling of online election coverage that he yelled at her until she cried. Barton claims Kyse backed Swofford and even joined in on the intimidation. (Kyse refused multiple requests to be interviewed for this article.) When human resources director Kathy Grant, named in the suit, tried to mediate, Barton alleges Grant told her that there was nothing to say about the complaints and suggested the tearful Barton â&#x20AC;&#x153;go and have a drink.â&#x20AC;? Barton says that the alleged harassment and intimidation caused her to become nervous and ill. In May 2008, Barton left the Press Democrat on maternity leave. She was later invited back to work but has not returned because she says she believes going back would injure her health, safety and well-being. Behrens was fired from the Press Democrat in February 2008 after the paper held termination hearings based on complaints made against her by male members of her staff. I emailed Swofford to ask him for clarification of the complaints that got Behrens fired. Like Kyse, Swofford refused to be interviewed, replying, â&#x20AC;&#x153;We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t comment on pending litigation.â&#x20AC;? (Avoiding reporters may be a New York Times corporate policy. Times owner Arthur Sulzberger refused to talk to reporter Mark Bowden for a feature article on Sulzberger in the May issue of Vanity Fair. Bowden commented, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ducking interviews is an awkward policy for the leader of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most celebrated newspaper, one that sends a small army of reportersâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;1,300 of themâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; into the field every day asking questions.â&#x20AC;?) Behrens and Barton both must have thought they had big journalism futures when they joined a New York Times publication. Behrens was recruited when she was running a website for the Chicago Tribune called Metromix. The site was generating 700,000 hits a month at the time with its postings of social news, event listings, activities and restaurants and bar reviews. Metromix typically carried stories on topics like where to get Chicagoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best spray-on tan. You can see where Behrensâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; work must been attractive to Kyse and the Times. They may have started salivating when they saw Metromix attracting lots of users between the ages of 18 and 35, a highly desirable demographic group for advertisers with a reputation for not reading newspapers. Kyse had just left the corporate offices of the New York Times in 2005 when he hired Behrens. Kyse knew as well as anyone that the corporation was losing money at an alarming and increasingly fast rate. In 2000, Times common stock was worth more than $50 a share; two months ago, shares were selling for less than $4. Behrens, with her proven ability to attract that 18â&#x20AC;&#x201C;35 demographic, would have looked like pork chops to Kyse and the slowly starving wolves at the Times. Barton was hired by Behrens early in 2007 to be her top assistant as online content editor. Barton had spent her career working at two papers with major, wellpublicized financial problems. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s possible, even likely, Barton saw Behrensâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; job offer as a professional life raft. Both Behrens and Barton moved house and husbands in order to take jobs with the PD, likely seeing their new positions in Sonoma County as a step toward center ring

in the big national newspaper circus. Instead, they ended up with tarnished careers, a hole in their rĂŠsumĂŠs and the hope that a successful outcome to their lawsuit will redeem their professional reputations. When David Cardiff, one of the two attorneys representing Behrens and Barton, returned my call, he was cordial when he said he wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t talk to me. Cardiff said not only would he would not comment on the lawsuit, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d advise his clients not to talk to me. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to litigate this in the press,â&#x20AC;? he said. Cardiff gave another reason for not wanting to talk; he said that he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to spoil an opportunity for settlement talks. Yet the lawsuit is broad in its assertions and vague in its details. Reading the complaint is like watching a bubble dancer. The stripper teases you into thinking you will see everything but in the end she shows you nothing.

ehrens chose to run an online operation separate and autonomous from the print newsroom. She and her small staff worked on a separate floor from the newsroom. Staff sources say there was little to no communication between the online publication and the editors of the print edition. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an illustration: Behrens reportedly once saw a staff reporter watching a video created by the online desk as an in-house promotion. The film was playing on televisions in the building lobby. She asked the reporter looking at the video what he thought of the production. He told her he thought it was a waste of resources. He said he thought the money would be better used in paying salaries. Behrens allegedly followed the reporter back to his desk, demanded his name (though he was a veteran with neardaily bylines) and then angrily complained about his remarks to management. Bleys Rose, the PDâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s California Media Workers Guild chair at the time, confirmed a major online versus print fight erupted soon after Behrens came on the job. Most contentious was Behrensâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; refusal to edit comments on stories posted online. Reporters complained to her that certain piecesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;particularly stories concerning Latinosâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;were targets for racist reader comment. Reporters twice circulated petitions that asked the paper to stop allowing racist remarks in its online readersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; comment. The reporters attached a threat in those petitions to withhold bylines from the online edition of the paper if the PD didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t begin monitoring and editing online comments. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There was an atmosphere of hostility towards Behrens in the newsroom because these comments were not being edited,â&#x20AC;? Rose acknowledged. Editors were forced to mediate the disputes with Behrens. Rose said he believes angry reporters did send emails to Behrens protesting the racist remarks. Reporters, Rose said, had two problems with the unedited comments. First, they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want the racist remarks attached to their story because it impacted the newspaperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s credibility. Second, sources were refusing to talk to reporters because they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to have to deal with the abuse. Rose said he never saw any emails accusing Behrens of sleeping with Kyse, but that he could easily imagine flippant remarks emailed from one reporter to another that said something like Behrens must have gotten her job by sleeping with the publisher.


C

he marriage of the New York Times and the Press Democrat is a story of ironies. For example, the New York Times is the envy of the newspaper business with a website that brings in 173 million or more hits a month, but there is no reader comment at www.newyorktimes.com. The Times bought the PD in 1986. In retrospect, it appears the Old Gray Lady is now the ball and chain in a partnership drowning in an ocean of debt and declining sales. Counselors say finances are often the root cause of trouble in a marriage. That appears to be the case here. A New York Times company press release says in the first quarter of 2009 the company lost $61.6 million, down 9.5 percent from the same quarter last year when the company made a small profit of $6.2 million. The company is carrying more than $1 billion in debt. The Press Democrat is a member of the Times’ Regional Media Group. Advertising for this group is down 29 percent from last year in the first quarter of 2009. The PD’s budgets are not publicly available. The Guild estimates that the company at the height of its profitability in 2003–2004 had an

approximately 25 percent profit margin on gross revenues of about $67 million. The Guild believes the Press Democrat now has about a 6 percent profit margin on gross revenues of about $37 million. Press Democrat profit apparently evaporates from Sonoma County without materializing with any apparent impact on budget sheets in New York. Meanwhile, the Times continues to demand job cuts to sustain overall corporate profitability. The paper has lost 70 jobs, about 30 percent of the work force, since 2004. The quick reduction of so many reporters, editors, photographers, graphic artists and copy desk/layout people, Rose admits, has the Guild worried about the jobs that are left. Of course, just because there are fewer reporters doesn’t mean there is any less news. Those newsroom staffers left must take pay cuts while assuming more responsibilities. Editors are doing online jobs in addition to their print jobs. Reporters are now carrying cameras and video recorders along with their notebooks and tape recorders as they cover multiple beats. Meanwhile, the Guild estimates younger online workers at the Press Democrat make as much as 6 to 8 percent more than do veteran colleagues in the print newsroom. Some think newspapers may not be justified in putting their faith in the new dogma that online editions are the future of the industry. Research released in December by a firm called ContentNext claims that the New York Times, were it to survive as a web-only product, would need to generate 1.3 billion hits per month, about seven times what it is generating now. Meanwhile, representatives of the Times are publicly admitting online advertising may decrease in 2009, and executives may be toying with the idea of charging for access to its online edition. Everyone I talked to on staff at the Press Democrat—and there were five different sources—said morale can be a problem. But most are just happy to have a job right now. Rose said the Guild believes the paper would not have to make such drastic cuts if it operated independently of the New York Times. His statement leads to a couple of speculations. One, the Press Democrat may sink and drown with its mother ship New York Times, leaving the redwood empire without a large mainstream media source. Alternatively, the Times will hold a fire sale and try to find a buyer for the PD. It’s hard to imagine anyone wanting to buy the Press Democrat if the Times decided to sell. Why take on the debt incurred in buying the Press Democrat when a new daily paper could be started in Sonoma County for half the cost? Why would a new publisher want to take on Guild agreements already in place when they can start negotiations from scratch—if the Guild was even part of a new paper? Sonoma County is a rich market for advertisers with few mainstream outlets for their advertising. A mainstream daily newspaper, as anachronistic as it may seem in this computer age, still looks like a viable business here. But the Press Democrat, as chained to the New York Times, may not be capable of being that viable business model, even as a bridge between the two towers is being built.

Rose said Behrens explained her refusal to edit reader comment by saying that if the paper edited any reader comment then legally the paper was responsible for verifying all reader comment on the website. Behrens, Rose indicated, believed that leaving the remarks unedited relieved the paper of legal responsibility for libel or slander published in online reader comment. Rose said he had lawyers at the Guild look at the issue. “Her explanation,” he said, “was something most people in the newsroom didn’t buy.” The Guild lawyers determined that papers all over the country edit online reader comment, and the Press Democrat could too if it chose to do so. After Behrens was fired from the paper and new men took over the online publication, a desk in the newsroom was setup for the online editors. The online staff now works closely with print editors on a daily basis. The online editor is frequently seen in the newsroom, particularly when deadlines are approaching. Print editors now have responsibility for posting print stories online. The Guild has little to do with the online side of the PD. This is in part because Kyse always attempted to keep the Guild out of the online side of the operation, according to Rose. To a great degree, Kyse has succeeded in that goal. The Guild has agreed to stay away from all online employees who do not provide original content for the site—in other words, almost all of them. So when Behrens and Barton started complaining of bullying and intimidation, the Guild was not involved in any investigation or hearings on those complaints. Still, Rose, who’s says he’s no fan of managing editor Swofford after years of knocking heads with him over Guild issues, says the accusations about Swofford in the complaint don’t sound like the Swofford he knows. “In six years of my dealing with Bob Swofford as Guild chair,” Rose said, “I never found him to be confrontational, assaultive or acting in a manner to show any great emotion or theatrics. We’ve been on totally opposite sides of heated issues. He’s certainly not a friend of mine. But in my view, I have to say it would be out of character for Bob Swofford [to act in the manner described in the complaint].”

oor, poor special election propositions. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re so unpopular, even proponents are asking Californians to vote yes in a kind of hangdog, best-of-a-badsituation kind of way. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been describing the ballot measures as â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;crisis management.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not budget reform,â&#x20AC;? says Assemblyman Bill Monning, who is supporting all six. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have to weather the storm as best we can.â&#x20AC;? But as the May 19 state election draws nigh and five of the six ballot proposals continue to poll poorly, it seems only logical to ask, what happens if they fail? First off, says California Budget Project director Jean Ross, things have changed quite a bit since this February deal was put together. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re implying that if the ballot measures pass, we wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a problem. Wrong,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The gap is going to grow regardless, even if all the budget measures are approved.â&#x20AC;? The projected deficit has been widening as tax revenues trickle in at even lower rate than anticipated in Februaryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget, and the damage for the next fiscal year is now being estimated by the Legislative Analystâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office (LAO) to be somewhere between $8 billion and $10 billion. So no matter what,

itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s back to the drawing board. According to Ross, Propositions 1A and 1B wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have immediate consequences for this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget but are seen by many to be the most important propositions, especially in terms of future tax revenue, education money and as a step toward calming the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget volatility. The revenues that go away in two years without Prop. 1A will gouge holes out of the 2011â&#x20AC;&#x201C;â&#x20AC;&#x2122;12 and 2012â&#x20AC;&#x201C;â&#x20AC;&#x2122;13 fiscal years, Monning says. The most clear danger for this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget is the failure of Proposition 1C, which promises $5 billion in money borrowed against future lottery profits, and the failure of Propositions 1D and 1E, which would contribute a little less than $1 billion redirected from the First Five early childhood programs and mental health services. That loss would be tacked on to the shortfall LAO already sees coming. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If these go down, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to have to borrow and cut to get to $16 billion which is . . . I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fathom it,â&#x20AC;? said former assemblyman and Budget Committee chairman John Laird last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and that was before the governor had weighed in with the fresh bad news, which puts the total up to $21 billion. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The stakes are high,â&#x20AC;? said Current Budget Committee member Monning. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kind of no plan B.â&#x20AC;? But with an $8billion to $15 billion shortfall already a foregone conclusion, someone ought to be formulating a plan B. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would argue they ought to tell us today how theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to close that gap,â&#x20AC;? says Ross. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of talking behind closed doors, not a lot in public.â&#x20AC;? Gov. Schwarzenegger has mentioned a proposal to cut $80.8 million from CalFireâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;right at the start of the summer fire season in another drought yearâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;if the propositions fail, and though that may appear to be an attempt to scare up some more votes for the propositions, huge cuts will certainly have to be made when the governor comes back with a revised budget sometime in late May or even June. Monning says he and his fellow Democrats are already planning for the consequences of both an $8 billion and a $16 billion shortfall. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Democratic caucus did a budget exercise a week and a half ago,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were able to capture some of it through mechanisms with the Department of Corrections, an early release program. We looked at some revenue neutral adjustments with a majority vote that could capture $3 billion to $4 billion in increased revenue.â&#x20AC;? This includes raising certain fees, like the vehicle license fee. Though the governor promised to block a budget passed by simple majority back in December, Monning says that at the time, â&#x20AC;&#x153;He prudently didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t criticize the majority vote as inherently illegal. I think he did that realizing he may have to accept a majority vote at some point.â&#x20AC;? Where the rest of that $16 billion or $21 billion is coming from is anybodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s guess at this point. If these propositions fail, Republicans and Democrats will once again have to lock horns in an attempt to balance the budget, and in time for the July 1 deadline, though Laird says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;with a problem that big, I can see it going into July.â&#x20AC;? Some fear that cuts on the back of cuts will reach into that final frontier of services: public safety. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The governor is articulating that thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no way out of this without cutting everybody,â&#x20AC;? Monning says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t protect any one sector with this big a deficit.â&#x20AC;?

Rescue our communities and we rescue ourselves By Arthur Kopecky

;

ast year, I wrote an essay in the Bohemian that stated, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Growth and debt are the cure for everything, but they cannot expand endlessly. We are reaching the limits now.â&#x20AC;? A year later, we have passed those limits and fallen off a cliff in a grand way. The high and mighty, the wealthy and arrogant, were totally blind. But the hippies saw the abyss. We have crisis on top of crisis now. Just recently, headlines have announced that difficulties in the dairy industry threaten the existence of our precious family farms. And daily we hear the drum roll of layoffs and rising unemployment, among the most profound dilemmas facing society. Yet few people see how these two problems could fit together to help ameliorate each other. There once were the beginnings of a â&#x20AC;&#x153;back to the landâ&#x20AC;? movement, and that effort continues on a subdued level in intentional communities, some of them right here in the North Bay. There is greater interest in local, organic, non-factory-farmed food. There is greater interest in ideas of community, reversing the alienation of modern society. There is greater interest in the ethics of service and pulling together to face common problems with â&#x20AC;&#x153;greenâ&#x20AC;? solutions. All these impulses dovetail into the notion of the extended family farm, one that is â&#x20AC;&#x153;in service to a culture of conscious kinship,â&#x20AC;? to quote the local Green Valley Villageâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mission statement. Somehow, when we think of the word â&#x20AC;&#x153;challenge,â&#x20AC;? we think grandiosely, like going to the moon. If a call went out to fill a colony ship to Mars, thousands of volunteers would line up. Show humans an impossible rock face or high mountain peak, and some have just got to go there. So what about this greatest challenge of all: getting along well enough to share a farm and create a safety net? There arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t full-time jobs for everyone, not even close, and there are many reasons why we canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go back to accelerating development. Here in Sonoma County, we have a specific and immediate challenge. The wonderful St. Anthony dairy farm near Bloomfield is up for sale. The multimillion-dollar price is a pittance compared to the wealth in the county. Is there not a group that would rally to create a live-in school, learning center and country home-assistance center? Are there no patrons

who can envision the power of a revitalized â&#x20AC;&#x153;back to the landâ&#x20AC;? movement? We have books about forming community and connecting with one another, like Diana Christianâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Creating a Life Together. We have the local Occidental Arts and Ecology Center, which specializes in the challenge of how to organize intentional communities. I myself am a former dairy herdsman and community member with a bit to offer. Sonoma County is special, both visually and intellectually. Preserving our rural heritage with a group effort would shine a light across our countryâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; indeed, across the planet, a world that faces these very same contradictions: disappearing farms, cities crowded with the unemployed, and the need to find creative, friendly, solutions. Many of us want President Barack Obama to succeed. We believe in the great shift, the time of transformation, the new paradigm. But the president alone cannot do this. There must be some grass-roots action. Entrepreneurs will play a part creating new businesses; another group will have to control some of the farms with lots of people who get food and shelter, and, in return, devote themselves in service to those on the road, the seekers, the ones who are not in the debt system, and others. This would help encourage a culture shift toward generosity and concern, so different from the obsessively selfish and narrow vision of the prevailing culture. As times get harder, there is a tendency to descend into angry rhetoric and blame. The group that can add something positive, hopeful and helpful will change the face of history. And we need it. The intentional community farms are the ideal vehicle, the necessary element, if a progressive renaissance is to blossom in this stressful time. It took WW II to put an end to the last giant economic crisis. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to have to do something massively better this time around. The farms are there crying for help. Where are the people who would create something fresh?

Preserving our rural heritage with a group effort would shine a light across our countryâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; indeed, across the planet.

e are what we drinkâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and what we drink from. I was once employed by a dysfunctional government organization. I managed to escape, but never forgot that in the main administrative offices of that dark place, everyone was served coffee in Styrofoam cups. That explained everything. Styrofoam is the brand name of Dow Chemicalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own polystyrene product, which is used for industrial purposes including insulation. The ubiquitous Styrofoam cup is actually just a polystyrene cup. But in the same way that Kleenex became generic for tissues, Styrofoam is the name that stuck to that white substance that can poison food and drink. Hot coffee with milk or cream in a polystyrene cup is not mere java but actually a cocktail of coffee and styrene. A suspected carcinogen that also mimics body estrogens, styrene migrates into the drinker and takes up residence. The presence of these chemicals is linked to numerous diseases including cancers. The Grinning Planet website (www.grinningplanet.com) reports that an EPA tissue survey showed that styrene was found in 100 percent of human fat samples biopsied. Fatty foods placed hot into (or reheated in) styrene containers greatly enhances the migration of the chemicals from container to human. As much as I shudder to think Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m carrying styrene around in my body, I feel just as bad contemplating the floating scab of plastic, styrene and Styrofoam that makes up the North Pacific Gyre, a marine debris concentration reported twice the size of Texas and from 10 to 50 feet deep in places. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s where so many of those packaging peanuts and coffee cups end up. Environment California legislative director Dan Jacobson pronounces them â&#x20AC;&#x153;devil cups,â&#x20AC;? and is circulating a petition to ban polystyrene. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Why should we get 10 minutes of use from a product that sticks around on the planet for a thousand years?â&#x20AC;? he asks. The organization has challenged Jamba Juice to stop using styrene cups by asking Californians to boycott the popular fruit smoothie chain.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are organizing a Styro-strike because we want styrene banned everywhere,â&#x20AC;? Jacobson says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;starting with Jamba Juice.â&#x20AC;? Jacobson is aware that Jamba Juice markets itself as a company that promotes healthy living and healthy drinks. Some of its stores promote customers bringing in their own reusable drink cups. But when you go up to the counter and order a drink, you get it in a styrene cupâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;except in those communities where the citizens have called for a ban. Orange County and Santa Cruz have bans, and next year Palo Alto enacts a recently voted ban. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If they will stop serving drinks in styrene cups,â&#x20AC;? Jacobson promises, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be the first one in line for a mango smoothie.â&#x20AC;? The biggest environmental problem with styrene is that it breaks into small pieces that are estimated to last 10 centuries and may never decompose. These bits and pieces defile the landscape and end up on the beach and in the craws of animals that canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tell food from foam pellets until the object has been swallowed. Not only does styrene offer a toxic stand-in for real food, in the North Pacific Gyre it joins forces with plastic to displace food that would otherwise be present for marine life. Scientists have measured six times more plastic than plankton filling the waters of this area. On April 13, the New York Times reported an invention to replace Styrofoamâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a combination of fungus and volcanic glass invented by Eben Bayer in 2007 for use as insulation. But, like Dowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Styrofoam, one doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get takeout food in it or drink coffee from it. No one needs to invent a replacement for the foam cup, because it already has been invented: cardboard with wax lining or plant-based plastics that can be tossed in the compost pile to become soil. I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t understand why anyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still using styrene food and beverage containers when there are biodegradable alternatives. The boycott sounds like a good idea. My second grader will be disappointed about not going to Jamba Juice anymore, but I will be happy to make him smoothies at home served in biodegradable glass.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Why should we get 10 minutes of use from a product that sticks around on the planet for a thousand years?â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

ATVd[PcX]V3Xac As dueling farm bills wend their way through committee, we try to understand what will hurt and what wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t By Ari Le Vaux

<

y inbox has been pummeled recently by a slew of emails warning me of the evils of a bill currently working its way through Congress. Sponsored by Rep. Rosa DeLauro, D-Conn., HR 875â&#x20AC;&#x201D;aka the Food Safety Modernization Act of 2009â&#x20AC;&#x201D;is one of a raft of bills introduced in the wake of the peanut-butter-borne salmonella outbreak. All of these proposed bills, which ostensibly seek to improve food safety with increased regulation, threaten to jeopardize local food systems with over-regulation. Unfortunately, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been difficult to get a grip on the billsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; true dangers because of all the alarmist hype thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s accompanied themâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;especially, for some reason, HR 875. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If [HR 875] passes, say goodbye to organic produce, your local farmers market and very possibly, the GARDEN IN YOUR OWN BACKYARD!!!!!â&#x20AC;? one email announced.

Another warned that HR 875 would result in the â&#x20AC;&#x153;criminalization of seed banking, prison terms and confiscatory fines for farmers.â&#x20AC;? Nearly all the emails claim, â&#x20AC;&#x153;DeLauroâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s husband Stanley Greenburg works for Monsanto!â&#x20AC;? It turns out Stanley Greenberg is indeed the CEO of a polling firm that did, indeed, contract with Monsanto. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no more true to say he works for Monsanto than to say he works for Nelson Mandelaâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;another former client. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is a perfectly legitimate conversation to be had about how we can have food-safety regulation without jeopardizing small farms and local food systems,â&#x20AC;? says Patty Lovera, assistant director of Food and Water Watch, a national nonprofit. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to have a rational conversation via these forwarded emails. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not happening in a way thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to change the policy.â&#x20AC;? Lovera assures that HR 875 wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t regulate seed saving, backyard gardens or farmers markets. It would, however, split the Food and Drug Administration into separate agencies, one

for food and one for drugs. Food and Water Watch supports that. Unfortunately, Lovera says, splitting the FDA might be too daunting a task for lawmakers to take on right now, and the proposed bill probably wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make it to law. More likely to reach a vote, Lovera says, is HR 759, called the Food and Drug Administration Globalization Act. While this proposed bill has drawn less attention than the others, she thinks itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more likely to cause big problems for small farmers. If passed, HR 759 would make recordkeeping requirements that currently apply to food processors extend to farms, and require that such recordkeeping be done electronically. It would also mandate that all farms become certified in so-called good agricultural practices. Following these practices, which are mostly aimed at controlling microbial contamination, turns out to be easier for farms that grow just a few things than it is for diverse, integrated farmsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;especially if the farm contains livestock. These and other aspects of HR 759 boil down, once again, &+ THE BOHEMIAN

to rules that would place a disproportionate burden on small, family farms in their attempt to regulate the large factory farms where most food-safety problems originate. These are but two of several proposed bills (some others are HR 814 and SR 425) that are supposedly aimed at preventing E. coli in spinach, downer cattle in school lunches, feathers in chicken patties and other horror stories weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve grown all too used to hearing. But by extending these regulations to the small farms that typically are not the sources of these problems, the playing field will further tilt in favor of corporate agriculture. And this is truly cause for concern. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t realize is that if any of these bills pass, we lose. All we will have left is industrial food,â&#x20AC;? says Deborah Stockton, executive director of the National Independent Consumers and Farmers Association, which promotes unregulated farmer-to-consumer trade and the commercial availability of locally grown and home-produced food products. One of Stocktonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top priorities is ending the controversial National Animal Identification System (NAIS). Implemented by the USDA in 2003 without congressional approval, NAIS is a federal registry program for livestock and for the premises where animals live or visit. The systemâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stated purpose is to aid state and federal government response to outbreaks of animal disease. â&#x20AC;&#x153;NAIS is a safety net for the corporate livestock industry,â&#x20AC;? Stockton told me. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re the ones with the practices that are creating problems for human and animal health, and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re the ones who need NAIS to cover their backs when something goes wrong. The main threats to food safety are centralized production, processing and longdistance transportation.â&#x20AC;? While she dislikes NAIS, Lovera says the bills currently under consideration are aimed at the FDA, and NAIS is not an FDA program; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s USDA. While she sees many problems with the current bills, strengthening NAIS isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t one of them. Stockton disagrees. If any of these bills pass, she says, it would ratify NAIS and strengthen the USDAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ability to make it mandatory that all livestock, including your flock of backyard chickens, be registered. A food-safety bill palatable to locavores will have to protect local food systems with specific language that guarantees small family farms, backyard gardens, personal livestock and farmers markets, and all forms of food self-sufficiency and farmer-direct purchasing are exempted. These regulations need to target the factory farms where the problems lie and not the small farms that could and should be the solution. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m hardly alone in believing the right to buy milk from your neighbor or grow your own food is as inalienable as the right to bear arms. And if lawmakers try to take this right away, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to see a backlash to make the NRA seem like a bunch of flowerwagging Hare Krishnas.

The sommelier of Carneros Bistro & Wine Bar is talking about what makes food so special in Sonoma, and particularly for his own restaurant at the Lodge at Sonoma, where chef Janine Falvo utilizes a cornucopia of local ingredients for her seasonal California menus. Whatever we could possibly want to eat, he explains, is grown right here. And with such richness of whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s available, any type of cooking is possible. As proof, he was showing off saltâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;all kinds of saltâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;handcrafted by Falvo in a feast of ďŹ&#x201A;avors like hazelnut, strawberry, Chardonnay, salt-cured olive custard, pretzel-caramel tart, and ďŹ&#x201A;eur de sel ice cream (recipes for which would certainly come in handy should the county ever ďŹ nd itself bobbing out in the middle of the PaciďŹ c). Besides having fun, part of Sawyerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s point was to encourage diners to think outside the box when they consider â&#x20AC;&#x153;California cuisine.â&#x20AC;? More than just rustic American, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s broadened recently into many other international ďŹ&#x201A;avorsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;pretty much anything goes as long as it enjoys the uniting theme of celebrating produce, meats, cheeses and such produced by North Bay farmers, ranchers and artisans. Which is why Sawyer and Falvo have just introduced another way to appreciate â&#x20AC;&#x153;newâ&#x20AC;? Sonoma cuisine. Every Sunday, Carneros Bistro now offers Italian food, made, of course, with homegrown ingredients. The three-course prix ďŹ xe meals reďŹ&#x201A;ect Falvoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Italian heritage, with an emphasis on comfort foods and unexpected delights. The dinner might start with arancini, pasta e fagioli or â&#x20AC;&#x153;greens and beans.â&#x20AC;? The entrĂŠe may be rabbit Bolognese, baccala casserole or a mixed plate of veal, goat and pancetta. Dessert could be sambuca mousse or strufoli honey cookies. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s expected that tomatoes will be a highlight and that sausage will star, as Falvoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parents grow their own fruit in the summer and make their own sausage in the winter. Salt? There will likely be a sprinkle or two. Reservations are recommended; chainsaws are not. Carneros Bistro & Wine Bar, 1325 Broadway (in the Lodge at Sonoma), Sonoma. 707.931.2042.

6>DA<4C0D10H ine at the coast is a mixed pleasure. On the beach proper, it makes a ďŹ ne accessory to good times, but not to good winetasting notes. And then thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the issue of glass. Sure, a ďŹ ne time can be had with boxed wine and plastic cupsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;maybe throw in some soda and call it a cooler.

Advertisements in travel magazines and tourism brochures, however, make it seem that the major activity couples enjoy on the seaside is clinking wine glasses whilst silhouetted in the foreground of a golden sunset shimmering over the waves. And seafood takes to wine even better than water. I made a little headway toward resolving these contradictions while wine surďŹ ng Bodega Bayâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;with just one taste of Mahoney Vineyards Carneros Vermentino ($21), a lean and lively pale white, perfumed as subtly as sea spray, that rides the edge of refreshing limelike acidity with deceptive ease. In a light, perpetual afternoon breeze, overlooking the partially sheltered waters of Bodega Bay from the deck of Gourmet au Bay, this was vino perfecto. My group reďŹ&#x201A;ected that while we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get any actual fresh catch out of these waters anymore, hell, at least weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got great local wine. And the views. Wine ďŹ&#x201A;ights are efďŹ ciently served on custom wooden â&#x20AC;&#x153;surfboardâ&#x20AC;? trays, an invention of the previous owners. Hard to believe this shop has been here on Highway 1 since 1995â&#x20AC;&#x201D;for locals, the sign promising, â&#x20AC;&#x153;wine, giftsâ&#x20AC;? is not a sure lureâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;but the new owners are a young couple whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done a good job of increasing its visibility and viability as a nice coastal joyride pit stop. The wine racks stock a modest, eclectic selection of localsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Longboard, naturally; also Vision Cellars, Fort Ross, Fleurâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;weighted in the $20â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$30 price range, and a few South African or New Zealand specials. The Chardonnay list, in particular, demonstrates both a savvy understanding of their clientele and a principled approach to the list. Plenty of unspendy bottles under $20 for vacationing fans of Americansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; favorite wines and no run-of-the-mill big brands. Besides hooch, Gourmet au Bay is well stocked with gifts, wine ware and books; again, mainly eclectic, not the usual bric-a-brac.

Simply Vietnam

Oxbow Public Market 610 First Street, Napa www.picapicakitchen.com

The second wine off the board, a woody Mackenzie Chardonnay ($18), might have been better with the artisan cheese and cracker plate ($12). Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all for snacking, but Gourmet au Bay encourages patrons to bring a picnic or takeout lunch to enjoy on their deck (conversely, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a free corkage arrangement with local restaurants). Cold crab cakes and sparkling wine by the sunset over bay? Sounds like a date. Gourmet au Bay, 913 Hwy. 1, Bodega. Wine surďŹ ng, $8. 707.875.9875.

A^RZ0\^]VcWTEX]ThPaSb Napa has always been a dead scene for teens. So whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s with the sudden explosion of bands? By Gabe Meline

;

ast year, Jakey Lee was frustrated with Napa. All of his skater friends had been harassed by the cops so often that they had stopped skating and just did drugs instead. All of his musician friends had declared Napa a dead town and had moved away or given up. All of the house parties his band played had started getting busted up after the first song. On the cusp of leaving Napa behind, Lee, just 21 and with plane ticket in hand, made a decision. He was going to help Napa get a scene. His band, Body or Brain, with Robert Bradley, 23, and Taylor Hight, 22, was going to make it. Their lives would become one giant thrust toward putting Napa on the map. One year later, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s starting to work. Suddenly, there are dozens of bands in Napa. Suddenly, there are places to play. Suddenly, people under 21â&#x20AC;&#x201D;perpetual outcasts in an area dominated by the wine industryâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;have something to do.

Olivia Everett, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s organizing a Battle of the Bands at the Napa Valley Opera House on June 12, provides a telling barometer of the shift. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had 20 bands apply, with only eight slots, and we still have a lot of great bands asking if the selections have been made,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In total, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had something like 25 bands express interest, and this for a town that, according to itself, constantly complains that thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nothing going on. I think theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve just proven themselves wrong.â&#x20AC;?

>

n a recent Thursday night, over 150 kids stand between the pool tables at Bilcoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Billiards to catch two local bands, Defying Truth and the Helen Kellers. There are all types of people: guys with dyed hair, blondes in jeans and college sweatshirts, a girl in plaid tights with bright Converse sneakers and a Police T-shirt. The vibe is communal, clique-free and mostly mellow, until the show ends with Helen Kellers frontman Ryan Rushworth diving backward over a brass railing onto a table, various audience members

commandeering the microphone, band members switching instruments and the drum set splaying apart while the crowd goes nuts. Putting their heads together afterward, Napa musicians Brian McKee, Dylan Varner and Mikey Rhinehart, all under 20, join Bradley and Lee to make a list of current Napa Valley bands. They give up after naming 17: Body or Brain, Cloverleaf Drive, Defying Truth, the Subtones, Over the Garden, Viridian City, the Helen Kellers, Magnanimous, Rumblefish, In These Walls, Planets, Rude Intoxicant, Brazen Bull, Thy Winter Shadow, Serf and James, Nana de Carlo and the Aftermath. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The cool thing is that every band has a different style,â&#x20AC;? Rhinehart says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;No two bands sound the same.â&#x20AC;? In addition to nightlife, the newfound opportunities for bands, they say, has helped curb drug use, which by anyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s measure is widespread. Pot and speed make the usual rounds, but lately Ecstacy has been the thing in Napa. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not gonna lie,â&#x20AC;? Varner says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I '+ saw someone earlier tonight on E who THE BOHEMIAN

THE BOHEMIAN

I was talking to. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not as big as it was a month ago, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still popular.â&#x20AC;? Drugs are easy to get in Napa; Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m given a run-down of where to buy along with somber stories about recent overdoses. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But then these shows started popping up,â&#x20AC;? McKee adds, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and it gave kids something to do.â&#x20AC;? Melody Harris, the girl in the plaid tights, comes by and offers a copy of Napkin News, her zine dedicated to the Napa scene. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a photocopied, folded sheet straight out of the mid-â&#x20AC;&#x2122;90s, and it contains upcoming shows, interviews, musings and news about Napa bands and venues. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bands have always been around,â&#x20AC;? she says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t start coming out of the woodwork until recently because they had no place to play, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all changing. Plus, if you are a teen in Napa, really, what else are you gonna do? This isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;youth-friendlyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; town, but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something else thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s changing.â&#x20AC;? What about skating? Doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Napa have a skatepark? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Skaters are hated by adults in this town,â&#x20AC;? McKee says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cops just look for a chance to bust young people. If it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to do with wineries making money, they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to have anything to do with it.â&#x20AC;? Varner agrees: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Once you get your license in Napa, you stop skating.â&#x20AC;? Bradley chimes in. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Once you get your license in Napa,â&#x20AC;? he says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;you leave Napa.â&#x20AC;? Later, Lee and Bradley walk me down to the skatepark, a half-block concrete area thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dimly lit and scattered with litter, next to the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sanitation-treatment building. No oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s out tonight at all, other than the occasional car that drives by and yells unintelligible threats at us out the window. We stop at one point, in the middle of downtown at 11pm, and the complete and utter silence is stunning. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hear that?â&#x20AC;?

auren Roll, who books the bands at Bilcoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, started inviting younger bands almost as a community service. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Unfortunately, there is absolutely nothing for anyone under the age of 18â&#x20AC;&#x201D;even 21 and younger; thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty much nothing for you to do at nighttime,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been lucky enough to get a lot of the younger crew coming in, anywhere from 14 to 18, that have some really good music going on.â&#x20AC;? Across town and down a long driveway in Napaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s industrial area, past granite and sign shops, is Rockzilla. Named for the myriad rock-climbing walls that fill the 25foot-high warehouse, the title is also fitting for the band playing. When I walk in, a singer in a basketball jersey is screaming his way through a metal-ska version of Mac Dreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hyphy anthem â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thizzle Dance,â&#x20AC;? while three boys stomp around the blue rock-climbing pad in front of the band: one in a spiked leather jacket, one in tiedye, one shirtless.

no case for five bucks. Audience members try their hand at climbing the rock walls while the next bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s guitarist warms up in a series of technically proficient metal solos that sound like a hundred fax machines arguing with each other. It takes them about 40 minutes to officially start playing, when an amp is finally delivered via an overheated car. As at Bilcoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the week before, it seems the crowd at Rockzilla rejects class division or social status; everyone seems to get along under the banner of something exciting actually happening in Napa. Along with the blend of cliques here is a noticeable integration of age and race. There are parents, veteran rockers, teenagers and small kindergartenersâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also more black and Latino people here than at any non-hip-hop show over the hill in Sonoma County.

ee, who is half-black, adopted and raised in a mobile home park, is an active proponent of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;realâ&#x20AC;? Napa and an outspoken critic of Napaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s renown for wine and wine only. He tells of writing to guitarist Chris Walla from Death Cab for Cutie, and receiving a response that still irks him: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Howâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Napa?â&#x20AC;? Walla wrote. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Go taste some wine for me.â&#x20AC;? As if funneling this frustration into their instruments, Body or Brainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s performances are mind-blowing demonstrations of the limber gymnastics of youth. Lee plays riffs on the electric guitar with his bare hands, no pick, and he moves like a clock spring thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s frantically uncoiling. He jumps, kicks, slings the guitar around his back, tap-dances, does the splits and moonwalks, all while playing the guitar and not missing a note. The bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new EP, Second Star to the Right, couldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been a dour complaint ref lecting the nothingness for kids in Napa. Instead, it creates a whole new Napa, a vibrant, exciting Napa thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s full of energy and tight hooks, a Napa where everyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s invited to the party. When â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Just Like Magicâ&#x20AC;? was played on Live 105 recently, DJ Aaron Axelsen called them an â&#x20AC;&#x153;exciting new local band from the 707.â&#x20AC;? Getting played on Live 105 and headlining in San Franciscoâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;50 of their fans drove down last month for a club dateâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;is only the beginning of Body or Brainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s determined promotion plan for Napa. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gonna change this townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reputation is a band breaking out from here,â&#x20AC;? Lee confidently predicts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been venues and places to play, but honestly, nothingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gonna last until a band breaks out of here.â&#x20AC;? And what if it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not gonna happen,â&#x20AC;? Lee says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re gonna do it.â&#x20AC;? The Napa Valley Battle of the Bands, featuring Body or Brain, Cloverleaf Drive, Defying Truth, the Helen Kellers, Nana de Carlo, Serf and James, the Subtones and Viridian City plus guests Flea Face Wash and Magnanimous, goes off on Friday, June 12, at the Napa Valley Opera House, 1030 Main St., Napa. 6pm. $10. 707.226.7372.

The Rep rips into another â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;reducedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; epic By David Templeton

crowbar has fallen out of Doddâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Delzellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s backpack. On a recent Saturday afternoon, as actors Keith Baker, Chad Yarish and Delzell gather at the Sonoma County Repertory Theater in Sebastopol to rehearse the upcoming show All the Great Books (Abridged), a heavy crowbar slips from Delzellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bag and clatters to the f loor with a loud crash. There is a short pause, as everyone stares at the crowbar, each man trying desperately to come up with the first joking response. Delzell wins. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yeah,â&#x20AC;? he says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was just doing a few extracurricular house burglary jobs before rehearsal. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pay any attention to that.â&#x20AC;? In truth, the crowbar has to do with a do-it-yourself plumbing job Delzellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been doing at his house, but it stands as a nifty example of this trioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attitude after spending the last several weeks immersed in the world of Great Books, a â&#x20AC;&#x153;reducedâ&#x20AC;? comedy by Reed Martin and Austin Tichenor, creators of The Complete History of America (Abridged) and The Bible: The Complete Word of God (Abridged). As the play gets ready to open this weekend, Delzell, Yarish and Baker have become focused on one thing: how to make a joke out of everything that happens. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nuts. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s overwhelming, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of fun,â&#x20AC;? says Baker of his first appearance in a â&#x20AC;&#x153;reducedâ&#x20AC;? show, this being the fourth such show presented by the Rep under the direction of Jennifer King. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This kind of comedy is pretty much the polar opposite of the serious dramatic stuff Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been working on lately,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a true comedy,

nothing but laughs for an hour forty-five.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;This being my second â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;reducedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; show,â&#x20AC;? says Yarish, who appeared in the Repâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s version of the Bible show two years ago, â&#x20AC;&#x153;itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great to be getting back into it, just running around and laughing like an idiot. I feel like maybe Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m getting the hang of it now. I certainly know what to expect from the rehearsal process, I know weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to be running nonstop for three hours a day until the show opens, and then Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to be running nonstop for an hour and 45 minutes every day until the show closes.â&#x20AC;? If it closes. The â&#x20AC;&#x153;reducedâ&#x20AC;? shows tend to have extended runs when they play at the Rep. In preparation for the very real possibility of a held-over run, all of the actors have been asked to keep their schedules open for the next several weeks. Just in case. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The first time I directed one of these shows,â&#x20AC;? King interjects, â&#x20AC;&#x153;it was the Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged). I learned pretty quickly that with these shows, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more like doing choreography than like directing. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one big comedic dance.â&#x20AC;? In this one, a trio of high school teachersâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the coach (Delzell), the professor (Yarish) and the student teacher (Baker)â&#x20AC;&#x201D; attempt to give a crash course in English literature by bringing to life 86 of the greatest books ever written. Asked if the performers have learned anything about literature while working on this show, Yarish is the first to jump in. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yes! Yes, I have,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve learned that I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need to read Henry David Thoreauâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Walden now, because apparently, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just a big boring book about fishing.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;What Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve learned,â&#x20AC;? says Baker, â&#x20AC;&#x153;is the weird, personal way in which most people view literature. People all around the world will say, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Ulysses, right, by James Joyce, yes, great book!â&#x20AC;&#x2122; And yet no one has actually read it. They just know that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s long, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unintelligible and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about some Irish guy. But thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s enough, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all we need to give you 10 minutes of hilarious theater.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve actually gone and read a few of the books, the ones I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know,â&#x20AC;? admits Delzell sheepishly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hearts Desire, The Silent Spring, The Fountainheadâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;that last one, by Ayn Rand, I had no idea what that was about. The Fountainhead? What the hellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a fountainhead? I thought maybe it was about a pen. Who knew it was about an architect?â&#x20AC;? When invited to mention the novels they most wish had been included in the show, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Baker who responds first, but Delzell who gets the funniest joke. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Catch 22,â&#x20AC;? says Baker. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Catcher in the Rye,â&#x20AC;? adds Yarish. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Bible,â&#x20AC;? nods Delzell. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know that one already has its own show, but as a novel, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one funny book.â&#x20AC;?

By Bart Schneider Van Morrison Reprises â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Astral Weeks,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Greek Theater, Berkeley Forty years ago, as a teen, I saw Miles Davis impersonate an ancient horn player here, aiming his trumpet into the night sky. Tonight, after the rain, I surprise myself by appearing under a floppy felt hat, not unlike Vanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;sâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; a baby boomer already boomed, with grown children and at least one life left behind. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s strange to be co-opted by corporate America on the campus at Berkeley, but, sure enough, I flash my Visa Signature card for a free seat cushion. With cushion and Anchor Steam, I cruise the crowd. So many people, once raggedy-ass and roused at anti-war rallies, now affluent, carrying their cushions. Before I settle into my hundred-dollar cheap seat, Vanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s onstage.

When he slows it down for â&#x20AC;&#x153;I Canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Stop Loving You,â&#x20AC;? the country classic becomes aching soul music, and I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help thinking that every one in the place is musing on the one they canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stop loving. Van was a pretty boy blond in a paisley shirt when he cut â&#x20AC;&#x153;Astral Weeks.â&#x20AC;? You marveled at his muscularity. Tonight, stout and leathery, obscure as ever, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tenderness that gets you. At intermission theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re out of Anchor Steam. I climb the muddy hillside to the top of the theater. The moon is out. The wind is still. Just the slightest flutter of eucalyptus leaves. Before Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m back on my cushion, the man opens up with â&#x20AC;&#x153;Astral Weeks.â&#x20AC;? The braided beauty of two acoustic guitars. If I ventured in the slipstream Between the viaducts of your dream . . . Even at twenty-three, Van could emote as naturally as breathing. To never never never never wonder why at all Never never never never wonder why . . . Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m standing beside you. As vocal dervish driven by the beats of language, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s as literary as Yeats and Joyce, and Beckett. The sweet stuttering of the Irish echo: All you gotta do Is ring a bell Step right up, and step right up And step right up Just like a ballerina . . .

Two siblings get all money can buy in â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Rudo y Cursiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; By Richard von Busack

ven with the severely glutted film market, I wish we got three times as many films from Mexico as actually arrive here. Rudo y Cursi will certainly do for now. It is produced by some of the most revered names in new Mexican cinema (Guillermo del Toro, Alfonso Cuaron and Alejandro Gonzalez Iùårritu) and directed by Cuaronâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brother, Carlos. The film reteams Diego Luna and the criminally handsome Gael Garcia Bernal of Alfonso Cuaronâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Y Tu MamĂĄ TambiĂŠn. Like TambiĂŠn, the action is narrated, but the difference is in the approach. The narrator in the former was detached, Godardian. In Rudo y Cursi, the narrator is Batuta, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Batonâ&#x20AC;? (Guillermo Francella), who is full of charming fatalistic proverbs about the relation between soccer and life. Baton is essentially a trickster figure, with dyed whiskers and a sports car. Like the devil, Baton looks for mischief where he can find itâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and he finds it on a rural soccer field. Baton discovers Tato (Bernal) and Beto (Luna), who are apparently half-brothers, (some of the U.S. reviews are calling them brothers). The two are classic hijos de chingada, and their parentage is a little uncertain, though each boasts of the superior virtues of his long-gone father. It hardly matters, because their mutual motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s latest boyfriend is a repulsive cop. The guys work on a banana plantation and are both about to run away to the United States. The talent scout Baton sees their promise on the field, but figures he can only take one of the pair. That one is Tato, who figures that futbol is just his day job until he can make a fortune as a cowboy-suited accordion player. In Mexico City, Tato rises to the top of the game, and he pressures Baton to sign Beto as a goalie. Beto is a success, ruling the goal

posts and shutting out team after team. Unfortunately, his poor sportsmanship gets him the nickname â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rudo.â&#x20AC;? For a time the two do well. Tato, now with his own nickname, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cursi,â&#x20AC;? meaning â&#x20AC;&#x153;snotty,â&#x20AC;? gets involved with the wet-dream TV starlet Maya (Jessica Mas). Tato also lands H-2, a fine house and even a few gigs, where he repeatedly massacres Cheap Trickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;I Want You to Want Me.â&#x20AC;? But Betoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s degenerate gambling and Tatoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hopeless love for the no-good Maya change both their luck for the worse. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not sure why the subtitles translate Batonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s words into cockney slang; this may have been to please the British market, due to the widely held belief that North Americans donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t care about soccer. (Or maybe itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s to make Baton sound more like Honest John Foulfellow in Pinocchio.) To be fair, this is an extremely idiom-heavy movie. Rudo y Cursi takes a merry tone to a story in which all roads lead to failure. Ultimately, the one true success is a local narco-thug with an army of bodyguards; he helps himself to the only peaceful spot in the film, a beautiful local beach and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a diabolus ex machina who brings in a sort of unhappy-happy ending. Yet itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s troubling to suspect that Rudo Y Cursi is really at heart a cautionary tale of two rural bumpkins who rise above their station. Because of that slight patronization, Rudo y Cursi is only almost really funny and only almost really tragic, though always thoroughly and elegantly moral: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pity, nowadays, wars are mistaken for games and games are mistaken for wars.â&#x20AC;?

Big Kiss

Knife in the Water

After years spent as the star attraction in the company of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wild Thingâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Angel of the Morningâ&#x20AC;? songwriter Chip Taylor, it only seemed natural for the extremely talented wings of Carrie Rodriguez to take f light on a solo career with the release of her acclaimed 2006 album, Seven Angels on a Bicycle. Rodriguez is such a phenomenal fiddle player, mandolinist and singer that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy to overlook any ho-humming over her recent album, She Ainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Me; the songs, well-written but limply supported by inorganic production in the studio, should have no problem coming to full life onstage. Rodriguez has long been cast as a rising star in these pages, and anyone who caught her opening for Lucinda Williamsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; latest tour is also laying their money down. Carrie Rodriguez in the late aughts is like Emmylou Harris in the late â&#x20AC;&#x2122;70s. Go see her if you know whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good for you on Thursday, May 14, at the Last Day Saloon. 120 Fifth St., Santa Rosa. 8pm. $15. 707.545.2343.

There is no greater director-composer partnership in the history of cinema, with the possible exception of Fellini and Rota, than that of Alfred Hitchcock and Bernard Herrmann. Before their falling out over the score to Torn Curtain in 1966, and

Hitchcockâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ruthless dismissal of his coconspirator in suspense, Herrmann had written 10 years of iconic film music. Among his bestknown theme is Psycho, to be performed in a program titled â&#x20AC;&#x153;Shadows and Lightâ&#x20AC;?

No Regrets New York Cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Prestige Records, while releasing early albums by John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Sonny Rollins and other jazz pioneers, walked through the damp concrete of Washington Square Park one day and picked up a few straggling folksingers along the way. Among the best and most notorious was raconteur Dave Van Ronk, but Prestige found an unknown gem in Tom Rush. Lasting on Prestige about as long as Ronk, Rush jumped to folk haven Elektra Records in time to release his best record, The Circle Game, featuring songs by Joni Mitchell and James Taylor that came to new life through Rushâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s soothing tenor. From that point, Rush became an interpreter of modern songwriters rather than a revivalist looking back, and always makes sure to throw in a few originals for authenticity. He performs songs from his first album in 30 years, What I Know, on Friday, May 15, at the Napa Valley Opera House. 1030 Main St., Napa. 8pm. $35. 707.226.7372.

Mastered the Art If the windows at the Hopmonk Tavern are still intact from the massive bass rumble of Bassnectarâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s set last week, then the Milgard glass will be grateful for the milder but no less danceable beats purveyed by Andreas Stevens, aka DJ Greyboy, at this weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Juke Joint. By now a fixture on the West Coast funk and soul scene, Greyboyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s released six albums on the San Francisco Ubiquity label under his own name and four with his live-band offshoot, the Greyboy All Stars. With his breakthrough album, Freestylinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, in 1994, Greyboy was also one of the first crate-digging DJs in the fading days of acid jazz. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s continued to stay relevant through many different eras sinceâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;scratch turntablism, the funk 45 phenomenon, the Kraftwerk revival, the electro-disco 12-inch crazeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;mostly by sticking to the basic notion that records are made to dance to. He appears with Brooklynâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s retrofunk party band the Pimps of Joytime on Thursday, May 14, at the Hopmonk Tavern. 230 Petaluma Ave., Sebastopol. 9pm. $10. 707.829.7300.

;8CC;474;?5A><78B5A84=3B Benefit for local blues legend Ron Thompson

ince there are no gigs that include medical coverage, musicians must do it for one another. Ron Thompson, one of Northern Californiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top blues guitarists for the past 30 years, is recuperating from a life-threatening ordeal with pneumonia in February. Speaking by phone from his Hayward home, he assures that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;doinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; all right,â&#x20AC;? and performing on a limited basis. The only problem is the stack of medical bills on his desk. To help him get back on his feet, the Last Day Saloon this weekend hosts â&#x20AC;&#x153;Musicians Rally for Ron Thompsonâ&#x20AC;? with a dream lineup of local blues performers: Volker StriďŹ&#x201A;er, Michael Barclay, Levi Lloyd, Bill Noteman and the Rockets, Joel Rudinow, Sly and Derek from the Aces, the Blues Burners, the Blues Defenders and Brother Cat. Thompson, born in Oakland in 1953 and pictured above with Bobby Bland, has played every dusty dive, back-alley bar and county fair between Fresno and San Francisco. He began his career playing in a North Richmond club at age 18, where he gained the notice of and was hired by Little Joe Blue. During the mid-â&#x20AC;&#x2122;70s, Thompson became John Lee Hookerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bandleader and made records with Big Mama Thornton. (â&#x20AC;&#x153;I might be able to ďŹ nd them if I searched for about three days,â&#x20AC;? he says.) In Chicago, he met Eddie Taylor, Jimmy Reedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s guitarist. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Taylor liked my amp, I got to know him, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how I hooked up with Reed.â&#x20AC;? The next decade found him joining close friend Mick Fleetwoodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s band, Blue Whale, and starting his own group, Ron Thompson and the Resistors, whose album Resistor Twister garnered a 1986 Grammy nomination. Recently, Thompson has been getting even more recognition. Mayor Gavin Newsom declared Sept. 5, 2007 Ron Thompson Day in San Francisco. Several other cities, including San Jose, followed suit. The National Heritage Foundation Blues Hall of Fame inducted him in 2008. Thompson also plays a mean piano and mandolin, â&#x20AC;&#x153;depending on the kind of song Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m doinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;,â&#x20AC;? he says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but slide guitar is what I really like. Elmore James got me really goinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;.â&#x20AC;? He hopes to be well enough to come to Santa Rosa for the show. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I still get really tired, but I want to be there,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Music is what I do for a living. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m blessed to be able to make money playing music.â&#x20AC;? Musicians Rally for Ron Thompson on Sunday, May 17, at the Last Day Saloon, 120 Fifth St., Santa Rosa. 2pm. $10. 707.545.2343. Robert Feuer

Former frontman eviscerates the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;fakeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Dead Kennedys By Gabe Meline

n 1989, a 13-year-old kid approached Jello Biafra, the singer of Dead Kennedys, at the River Theatre in Guerneville. It was dark inside the show, but the young fan recognized his idol through a sea of purple Mohawks and leather jackets, his mind racing to all the hours heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d spent listening to Dead Kennedys cassettes on his Walkman, all the lyrics heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d pored over and memorized. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Excuse me, Mr. Biafra,â&#x20AC;? he meekly opened, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d just like to say that I love your music, and, uh, the Dead Kennedys had a real huge impact on me . . .â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yeah, yeah,â&#x20AC;? Biafra snorted. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Blah blah blah! Buy a record! Buy a T-shirt!â&#x20AC;? The kid was crushed. How could it be that this man whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d written some of the most scathing indictments of capitalism, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d made fun of money-grubbing new wave bands, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d assembled brilliantly offkilter album booklet collages and whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d taken the entire American ideal of consumerism to task as the heart and soul of one of the most important punk bands in the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;how could he so denigrate a genuine expression of admiration by telling the kid to buy some crap? It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t until a decade later that the resentment among the broken-up Dead Kennedys was unveiled not only to that kidâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;yeah, it was meâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;but to the world at large in an ugly series of legal action and allegations between Biafra and East Bay Ray, D. H. Peligro and Klaus Flouride, the other three ex-members of the band. Biafra had been holding out on royalties, the exmembers charged. He hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t advertised the albums enough in major music magazines. He hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t allowed lucrative licensing of Dead Kennedysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; music. He had mismanaged the

bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s catalogue, they said. Most absurdly, they wanted to tour as â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dead Kennedysâ&#x20AC;? with a different singer. The three ex-members eventually won their six-year lawsuit, in 2004, with Dexter Holland from the Offspring and Howie Klein from Warner Brothers as â&#x20AC;&#x153;expert witnesses.â&#x20AC;? I read the newspaper article, complete with photos of the band in three-piece suits, and a little piece of idealism inside of me was crushed all over again. I felt bad for Jello Biafra.

recently called Biafra to dispel widespread rumors that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be singing with Dead Kennedys when the band, with current stand-in vocalist Skip Greer, appears at the Harmony Festival in Santa Rosa on June 12. He fields similar calls virtually every time the band plays without him, and by now rumors of his singing for the band are as constant as the chances of it ever happening are impossible. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the great heartbreak of my life,â&#x20AC;? Biafra says by phone from his San Francisco house, reflecting on his relationship with his former band mates. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To have something that obviously means way more to me than it does to them, just to be dumbed-down and marred like this. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like spray-painting a McDonaldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s logo on the Mona Lisa or something.â&#x20AC;? Most poignant is the knowledge of how much a real Dead Kennedys reunion would mean to fans. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One band that reformed that I swore Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d never go see but did was the Stooges,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And I had a great time! It was really good, powerful stuff. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t lost on me how much that show meant to everybody, and what a real Dead Kennedys show, even at a place like the Warfield, would mean to people.â&#x20AC;? Biafra says heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s willing to do itâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;with conditions. The other three members

would have to return the album rights to Alternative Tentacles, Biafraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s label, for starters. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d have to fire their management and booking agent, and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d have to stop licensing songs for commercial purposes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And,â&#x20AC;? he adds, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ray would be required to regrow the mullet he insisted on having on our last tour in 1985. No mullet, no reunion! â&#x20AC;&#x153;It would have to be, in other words, not just the same guys, but the real spirit of the band,â&#x20AC;? Biafra continues, â&#x20AC;&#x153;where we rehearse until we sound as good as we ever did and work our butts off onstage and mean what the lyrics are saying! Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why they sued me in the first place, because I stuck to the principles of the band. I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to be in a Leviâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s commercial, let alone wake up several years later and find out that a cover version of a song I wrote was used as the background music to a brutal rape scene in one of the Grindhouse movies. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how low things have gone with them. I mean, they may claim theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re progressives, but in my opinion they think and behave like Republicansâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Money Ăźber alles, and it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter who gets hurt as long as thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more cash for me.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; That whole attitude is exactly what the real Dead Kennedys always stood against.â&#x20AC;? Biafra, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s currently finishing a new album with members of Faith No More and Victims Family at Prairie Sun in Cotati, has kept busy with spoken-word and music projects since his most famous band split up; heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s never thought about forming a new backing band and performing Dead Kennedys songs. (â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to stoop to that,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They may be putrid human beings, but I would not be comfortable calling a band Dead Kennedys unless Ray and Klaus and Peligro were in it.â&#x20AC;?) And yet through the bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new partnership agreement, Biafra says he actually helps pay for the Dead Kennedysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; concerts with the â&#x20AC;&#x153;scabâ&#x20AC;? singer while receiving no portion of the proceeds. The albums, some re-released without their iconic booklets by artist Winston Smith, are another thorn. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Instead of disappearing into eBay collectordom, where nobody could find the material, I paid out of my own pocket to keep all Dead Kennedys albums in print for two decades, and made sure everything was paid in full and on time to keep them fed,â&#x20AC;? Biafra says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yes, there was an accounting error on our part eventually. When we foundâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;not theyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;when we found the cause of it, we paid them in full, and then they sued, charging conspiracy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Another thing that galls me is the way they were able to bamboozle the jury into awarding them tens of thousands of dollars in damages for â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;lack of promotion,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; just because they werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t regularly advertised in Rolling Stone, Spin and Billboard, or in regular rotation on MTVâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;for 15 straight years after the band broke up! Even though by then, they were claiming they wrote â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;MTV Get Off the Air,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; as well!â&#x20AC;? Biafra reiterates that he wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be singing with the band in Santa Rosa, instead busying himself with â&#x20AC;&#x153;trying to protect the long-term value and integrity of Dead Kennedysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; music and vision,â&#x20AC;? he sighs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The brains and heart and soul of the operation has to speak up, no matter how often I get threatened by their legal people.â&#x20AC;? Dead Kennedys, without Jello Biafra, appear June 12 at the Harmony Festival in Santa Rosa.

Ross Valley Playhouse actor Eric Burke studies the master rthur Miller,â&#x20AC;? remarks actor Eric Burke, â&#x20AC;&#x153;will always last as long as you have actors up to the task of playing the characters heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s created.â&#x20AC;? Burke, for the record, is more than up to the task, having won accolades for his performances in last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s production of Millerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Death of a Salesman at the Sixth Street Playhouse. He is already generating advance buzz for his work in Millerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s A View from the Bridge, which opens this weekend at the Ross Valley Playhouse in Marin. As an actor, Burke has made a name for himself with raw, full-throttle performances in such Ăźber-gritty dramas as Glengarry Glen Ross and True West. In Bridge, Millerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 1950 look at the lives of a close-knit Italian family, Burke plays Eddie Carbone, an honest, blue-collar dock worker whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s become a little too protective of his attractive teenage niece. True to Millerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s under-theskin approach, Eddieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s self-delusions ultimately lead to tragedy. According to Burke, Eddie Carbone has been one of the biggest challenges of his career. â&#x20AC;&#x153;By saying itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a challenge, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m saying that as a very good thing,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of my rules when playing a character is to never judge them; I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t and still be able to see the soul of the character. Eddie, to me, is a very passionate man who truly believes that what heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s doing is right.â&#x20AC;? Recognizing that some audiences view Miller as a â&#x20AC;&#x153;difficultâ&#x20AC;? playwright who wrote depressing plays, Burke says heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s found the opposite to be true. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These stories really are the true slices of Americana,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These people who populate the landscape of his plays are very accessible and familiar. We all know a Willy Loman, from Death of a Salesman. We all know an Eddie Carbone, We all know something about the decay and corruption of American business. We all know something about illegal immigration. We all know something about desire and lies and heartbreak. These are the stories of American reality, and when we see one of Millerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plays, we walk away with these characters sticking to us like glue, because they are us.â&#x20AC;? A View from the Bridge runs Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Sunday, May 15â&#x20AC;&#x201C; June 2, at the Ross Valley Playhouse. Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Saturday at 8pm; Sunday at 2pm. Special Thursday performances May 28, June 4, 11 and 18 at 7:30pm. Barn Theatre, Marin Art and Garden Center, 30 Sir Francis Drake Blvd., Ross. $15â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$25. 415.456.9555.

Freestone Fermentation Fest celebrates that which inexorably grows he first annual Fermentation Fest will miss two delightfully fermented foodsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;beer and wineâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and you can only blame it on the kids. Due to a double-booking situation, the festival, which celebrates all that bubbles up with lifeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;including kombucha, cheese, bread, sauerkraut, tempeh, enzyme baths and community spiritâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;will be held not on winery grounds as originally planned but on school grounds, where beer and wine have made bad names for themselves. They must stay with the cigarettes, strictly off school property. But that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean that fun wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be had. After all, kids are often able to enjoy themselves entirely sober. And so it will be when vintner Lou Preston exhorts visitors to don plastic baggies to stomp cabbage for homemade sauerkraut, when our own Calendar Queen Kate Polacci divulges the secrets, ugh, of kombucha and when peak oil messiah Richard Heinberg reminds those gathered that a committed community gains its own mass, no macroscopic solids needed. Music, bread-making demos and all manner of other fun, guaranteed. The Freestone Fermentation Fest boils over on Saturday, May 16, fom noon to 8pm at the new LEED-certified Salmon Creek School, 1935 Bohemian Hwy., Occidental. $5â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$10. www.freestonefermentationfestival.com.
