0:8=3;H2>AA42C8>=5D;;>5;>E4 Regarding Juliane Poirerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Green Zone article â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heat Risesâ&#x20AC;? (Sept. 16) and the Letter to the Editor response by Mr. Cauthen the following week, I only have one thing to say: Do you people ever think any of the ideas through that you write about or publish? And what about backing up opinions and statements with some kind of thesis or even just a simple explanation of what you are trying to persuade people to believe. To start with, I have been driving the SonomaMarin Narrows since John Lennon broke up the Beatles (now thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s emotive writing), and I have observed that the traffic still sucks at high usage times. I also drive farther up Highway 101 through Santa Rosa and have observed the dramatic change in traffic flow through the Roman-inspired â&#x20AC;&#x153;Three Lanesâ&#x20AC;? area. The old congestion is now gone with the addition of another lane and doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t return until you go back down to two lanes. Note: As the population increases through the years, congestion will return. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yes Virginia, more people equals more cars equals more congestion equals more GHG emissions.â&#x20AC;?

I guess the other theory would have us believe that great masses of people just sit waiting at home with their cars until a highway is widened. Or that more people will start commuting or move to Sonoma County if they just had one more lane between Petaluma and Novato. (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pack the bags honey, there are HOVs in wine country!â&#x20AC;?) Conversely, wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t it make more sense that cars sitting in congested traffic would create more GHG emissions as opposed to traffic that is flowing smoothly? Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be interested in seeing the facts that support the estimated 27 percent increase in greenhouse gas emissions due to the widening of a road. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a pretty bold allegation to make in a supposed environmental article without anything to back it up. Am I the only one who took a critical thinking class? Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m no Caltrans engineer, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve observed that extra lanes donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t increase traffic; more people driving cars increases traffic.

7>>A0H5>A?;414B Re â&#x20AC;&#x153;New Bohemiaâ&#x20AC;? (Sept. 9): Some of our most brilliant, courageous people have historically come

from â&#x20AC;&#x153;plebeâ&#x20AC;? if not â&#x20AC;&#x153;culturally deprivedâ&#x20AC;? society, i.e., Lincoln, and currently the president and first lady and Justice Sotomayor. Genius does not reside only in the ranks of the elite. That is why I quit reading Ayn Rand. Ayn Randâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s society of the best and the brightest is somewhat similar to members of writer P. Joseph Potockiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s superclass of â&#x20AC;&#x153;global elitesâ&#x20AC;? with its â&#x20AC;&#x153;top-flight national, corporate and independent laboratories.â&#x20AC;? Potocki does issue warnings about this elite â&#x20AC;&#x153;contado,â&#x20AC;? and that is much to his favor. I found his article fascinating, and I read it three times.

>C74A?4>?;4½B3A40<B0A4F48A3 After reading your article on the Meat Puppets (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Normal Whimsy,â&#x20AC;? Sept. 16), I had this dream: I was in the Hopmonk Tavernâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s beer garden feeling happy and having a grand olâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; time. I wandered into the room where the Meat Puppets were playing and everyone was doing a dance, which I think may be called the â&#x20AC;&#x153;electric slide.â&#x20AC;? I thought, â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is bunk,â&#x20AC;? and started a free-style spin of my own dorky creation. The proprietors would have none of this and promptly threw me out. One of them was nice enough, during my escort down the street, to go back and retrieve my pillows. I, true to fashion, sneaked back in. Although I was originally in the beer garden with a friend, a robot friend now accompanied me. The robot barged through the throngs of teenagers. We broke the gate as my mechanical buddy was compelled to lead me to a secret room in the establishment. There, video cameras recorded miniature helicopters touching down in a mock neighborhood, broadcasting to the would-be hoodlums that â&#x20AC;&#x153;the manâ&#x20AC;? wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going to allow any shenanigans. I, true to fashion, started smashing the lights, props and cameras. The dangling wires started shocking me, but I continued my rampage. The shock grew worse but I endured them. As I made it to the exit, a wire followed me. I was getting fried as I went down the hall.

Project Censored features the stories the mainstream media missed Edited by Rebecca Bowe

4

very year since 1976, Sonoma State Universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Project Censored has spotlighted the 25 most significant news stories that were largely ignored or misrepresented by the mainstream press. Now the group is expanding its missionâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; to promote alternative news sources. But it continues to report the biggest national and international stories that the major media ignored. Here are their top 10 underreported stories of 2008â&#x20AC;&#x201C;â&#x20AC;&#x2122;09.

1. Congress Sells Out The total tab for the Wall Street bailout, including money spent and promised by the U.S. government, works out to an estimated $42,000 for every man, woman and child,

according to American Casino, a documentary film about sub-prime lending and the financial meltdown. But another twist in the story has received scant attention from the mainstream news media: the unsettling combination of lax oversight from national politicians with high-dollar campaign contributions from financial players. In the 10-year period beginning in 1998, the financial sector spent $1.7 billion on federal campaign contributions, and another $3.4 billion on lobbyists. Since 2001, eight of the most troubled firms have donated $64.2 million to congressional candidates, presidential candidates, and the Republican and Democratic parties. Wall Streetâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spending spree on political contributions coincided with a weakening of federal banking regulations, which in turn created a recipe for the astronomical financial disaster that sent the global economy reeling.

Sources: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Lax Oversight? Maybe $64 Million to DC Pols Explains It,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Greg Gordon, Truthout.org and McClatchey Newspapers, Oct. 2, 2008; â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Congressmen Hear from TARP Recipients Who Funded Their Campaigns,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Lindsay Renick Mayer, Capitol Eye, Feb. 10, 2009; â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Big Takeover,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Matt Taibbi, Rolling Stone, March 2009.

2. School Segregation Latinos and African Americans attend more segregated public schools today than they have for four decades, professor Gary Orfield notes in a study conducted by the Civil Rights Project of UCLA. Orfieldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s report used federal data to highlight deepening segregation in public education by race and poverty. About 44 percent of students in the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s public school system are people of color, and this group will %-

soon make up the majority of the population in the U.S. Yet this racial diversity often isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t reflected from school to school. Instead, two out of every five African-American and Latino youth attend schools that Orfield characterizes as â&#x20AC;&#x153;intensely segregated,â&#x20AC;? comprising 90 to 100 percent people of color. For Latinos, the trend reflects growing residential segregation. For African Americans, the study attributes a significant part of the reversal to the ending of desegregation plans in public schools nationwide. Schools that are segregated by race and poverty tend to have much higher dropout rates, higher teacher turnover and greater exposure to crime and gangs, placing students at a major disadvantage in society. The most severe segregation is in western states, including California.

3. Somali Pirates Somali pirates off the Horn of Africa were like gold for mainstream news outlets this past year. Stories describing surprise attacks on shipping vessels, daring rescues and cadres of ragtag bandits extracting multimilliondollar ransoms were all over the airwaves and front pages. However, very little ink was devoted to factors that made the Somalis desperate enough to resort to piracy in the first place: the dumping of nuclear waste and rampant overfishing in their coastal waters. In the early 1990s, when the government of Somalia collapsed, foreign interests began swooping into unguarded coastal waters to trawl for foodâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and venturing into unprotected Somali territories to cheaply dispose of nuclear waste. Those activities continued with impunity for years. The ramifications of toxic dumping hit full force with the 2005 tsunami, when leaking barrels were washed ashore, sickening hundreds and causing birth defects in newborn infants. The uncontrolled fishing harvests, meanwhile, damaged the economic livelihoods of Somali fishermen and eroded the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s supply of a primary food source. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when the piracy started.

4. Nuclear Nightmare The Shearon Harris nuclear plant in North Carolinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Wake County, located in a backwoods area, bears the distinction of housing the largest radioactive-waste storage pools in the country. Spent fuel rods from two other nuclear plants are transported there by rail, then stored beneath circulating cold water to prevent the radioactive waste from heating. The hidden danger, according to investigative reporter Jeffery St. Clair, is the looming threat of a pool fire. A possible 140,000 people could wind up with cancer. Contamination could stretch for thousands of square miles. And damages could reach an estimated $500 billion.

When a study was sent to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission highlighting the safety risks and recommending technological fixes to address the problem, St. Clair noted, a pro-nuclear commissioner successfully persuaded the agency to dismiss the concerns.

5. EPA and Toxins Two years ago, the European Union enacted a bold new environmental policy. The story thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gone unreported is how this game-changing legislation might impact the United States, where chemical corporations use lobbying muscle to ensure comparatively lax oversight of toxic substances, with the EPA lagging far behind in its own scrutiny of insidious chemicals. Just one-third of the 267 chemicals on the EUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s watch list have ever been tested by the EPA, and only two are regulated under federal law. Meanwhile, researchers estimate that 42 billion pounds of chemicals enter American commerce daily, and only a fraction of them have ever undergone risk assessments.

6. D.C. Lobbying Grows In 2008, as the economy tumbled and unemployment soared, Washington lobbyists working for special interests were paid $3.2 billionâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;more than any other year on record. According to the Center for Responsive Politics, special interests spent a collective $32,523 per legislator, per day, for every day Congress was in session. The list of highest-ranking spenders on D.C. lobbying reads like a roster of some of the most powerful interests nationwide. Topping the list was the health sector, which spent $478.5 million lobbying Congress last year. A very close runner-up was the finance, insurance and real estate sector, spending $453.5 million. Pharmaceutical companies plunked down $230 million, electric utilities spent $156.7 million, and oil and gas companies paid lobbyists $133.2 million.

7. Obama Appointees President Barack Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s appointments to the U.S. Department of Defense have raised serious questions. Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision to retain Robert Gates, Secretary of Defense under George W. Bush, marks the first time in history that a president has opted to keep a defense secretary of an outgoing opposing party in power. Critics are also uneasy about the appointment of Deputy Defense Secretary William Lynn, who formerly served as a senior vice president at defense giant Raytheon and was a registered lobbyist for the company until July 2008.

Open Weds evenings 6–9pm

According to a 2008 report by the Government Accountability Office—and largely ignored by the mainstream media— 83 of the top publicly held U.S. companies, including some receiving substantial portions of federal bailout dollars, have operations in tax havens that allow them to avoid paying their fair share to the Internal Revenue Service. The report also spotlighted the activities of Union Bank of Switzerland, which has helped wealthy Americans use tax schemes to cheat the IRS out of billions in recent years.

9. White Phosphorous In mid-January, as part of a military campaign, the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) fired several shells that hit the headquarters of a United Nations relief agency in Gaza City, destroying provisions for basic aid such as food and medicine.

10. Ecuador Won’t Pay When President Rafael Correa announced that Ecuador would default on its foreign debt, he framed it as a moral stand. The announcement came in the wake of an exhaustive audit of Ecuador’s debt documenting hundreds of allegations of irregularity and illegality in the decades of debt collection from international lenders. Although Ecuador had made payments exceeding the value of the principal since the time it initially took out loans in the 1970s, its foreign debt had nonetheless swelled to levels three times as high due to extraordinarily high interest rates.

A union activist holed up at a local motel wonders who else is there By Melissa Ann Chadburn

s I walked the hotelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s smoky, green carpeted hallway, smelling soiled diapers and rotten cantaloupe, I heard a woman chime out, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Do we get CCN?â&#x20AC;? A steadier male voice yelled back, â&#x20AC;&#x153;No.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;What? They donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe in Christian programming here?â&#x20AC;? The male voice headed toward me. I kept the elevator open, listening to the dull electric hum of the fluorescent lights overhead and wondering what he might look like. At $65 a night for a kitchenette, bed and unreliable wireless, this is no Ritz Carlton. Who stays here anyhow? Who chooses Extended Stay America? A brief moment later, there he wasâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;tall, thick and friendly, the rolls of skin on his bald head showing shaving bumps. He wore a gray T-shirt and black cotton shorts, his dark brown arms hugging a laundry basket. I lifted my detergent in a friendly salute. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Laundry day.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yep. You been here long?â&#x20AC;? I smiled. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A couple weeks.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been here for two months. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m hoping we could leave in one more month. But Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m blessed. I was working for Kaiser and then I got laid off, and thank God I had a second job, but weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re staying here until I can try to get us another house. It seems like I might be able to get one in a month. I thank God every day. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m blessed, I truly am.â&#x20AC;? On the wall beside me there was an advertisement that depicted a man who looked not unlike him, a friendly attractive black man, only he was dressed in olive slacks and a khaki button-down with a laptop propped on his knee. On the coffee table before him was a half-drunk glass of orange juice and a plate of fruit. He looked happy. Happy to be working and staying at the live-in motel. The man in the elevator glanced at the advertisement and said â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m blessed.â&#x20AC;? Once more. On the ground floor, we were greeted by his daughter, her hair in innocent small braids. She grabbed his hand and ran him into the laundry room. There, wedged between a soda machine and a vending machine, was his son, a skinny boy in a black T-shirt and jeans with a finger perched against his lips to seal a secret. On the floor sat a toddler in a bulging baby blue onesie playing with colored, plastic rings. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Have a blessed day.â&#x20AC;? So thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one type who stays here: the

family who has to. Then there are what I call the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hustle and Flows,â&#x20AC;? like the troupe of D-list pimps and hos who stay downstairs. From what I can tell, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s two guys and three girls. One of the guys is maybe around 17, white with a flat-top and oily skin; the other guy is older, maybe 24, a light-skinned black guy with outdated fluffy hair. Their room is below mine, and as a result, my bathroom vent consistently emits a hybrid of cheap cigar tobacco and backwoods marijuana smoke. I see them in the parking lot. They look like theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re having a good time, but halfmiserable, too. They drive an old tan-gold Cadillac that has Doritos wrappers and fast-food soda cups lying around the back seats. The girls always sit in the back and the guys in front. The girls walk out of here around 5 or 6pm with too much makeup on. Thick black eyeliner coating their eyes, hair not washed but sprayed over a couple of times, bright matte lipstick in fuchsias and pinksâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re like what happens when you spend too much time in a discount clothing store and everything starts to look good. They go down to the main road, and from there, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not sure where they head, because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a small town that runs along one main highway, and it seems most of their potential clients would be right here in this building. Then there are just the flat-out druggies. One night, I saw the younger white guy jumping around the parking lot smoking something that smelled like too many chemicals. He was dancing, wearing an oversized hoodie. When I got back upstairs, he was trying to stick one of Extended Stayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s thin gray plastic key cards in my door. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wrong door,â&#x20AC;? I said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oh? Uh-oh.â&#x20AC;? He ducked off and ran down the hall. And then, of course, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s me.

I see them in the parking lot. They look like theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re having a good time, but half-miserable, too.

Following the twisted migration of our stuff By Juliane Poirier

>

ne of my favorite phrases, passed along by North Coast horticulturalist Ernie Wasson, sums up any living organismâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basic options: adapt, migrate or die. Migration can be a naturally life-sustaining option, even a necessity for birds, humans and other living things. But the migration of garbage is just the opposite; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an unnatural and energyintensive process referred to as â&#x20AC;&#x153;the removal chain.â&#x20AC;? And itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s twisted. Of course, we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know much about it because it takes place in a fantasy realm called â&#x20AC;&#x153;away,â&#x20AC;? as in â&#x20AC;&#x153;thrown away.â&#x20AC;? Our urban wastemanagement systems are more or less based on this collective fantasy in which participants tacitly agree that once the bins are emptied by the collection trucks, our refuse no longer exists. But some fantasycrushing researchers in a project called Trash Track are saying there is no away. To prove it, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re virtually trotting after the garbage truck and asking, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Why do we know so much about the supply chain and so little about the removal chain?â&#x20AC;? Trash Track is an artistic, scientific, architectural and technological investigation of the removal chain. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an experimental brainchild of creative researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, who, with funding from Waste Management of New York, are studying the migration of garbage in three major cities with the intent of changing the way we perceive and manage refuse. In London, New York and Seattle this summer, volunteers helped tag 3,000 items of trash per city with transmission devices similar to little cell phones without keyboards or screens. The device is small enough to fit in your palm, and its components fall well below U.S. and European toxin thresholds in order to be safe in any waste stream. Beginning in mid-July, the locations of tagged items were transmitted to a central server at MIT and mapped in real time as they traveled through the waste streams of these cities. This month, the Trash Track

team unveiled two public exhibits on view until Nov. 7â&#x20AC;&#x201D;one at the Seattle Public Library and the other at the Architectural League in New York City. My favorite among the reports is a beautifully depicted map and graphics poster with data about a Starbucks cup thrown away somewhere in Seattle: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Brown coffee cup, currently located on Interstate 5, Seattle, WA 98108; 7 days, 8 hours and 42 minutes en route.â&#x20AC;? Similar to the dynamic maps on some airline f lights that show you where the plane is by means of a moving red line that makes its way across a map, the Trash Track graphics depict the travels of the coffee cup by marking the route it traveled from the time it was tossed in the garbage can at a Seattle Starbucks to when it reached the interstate seven days later. But the line of travel includes blobs where the cup paused on its journeyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the larger the blob, the longer the pause. That one coffee cup did not go directly anywhere, but took an erratic route that was not completed when the map was made. I wonder if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still traveling. What is obvious from a look at the movement patterns on the MIT maps is that the garbage odyssey does not follow biological patterns; it is not efficient. A plastic soap container in New York traveled three and a half days for a distance of 18 miles when it was mapped. An aluminum can in Seattle traveled just over two miles to a recycling collection point. When the experiment is over, it would be a snap for MIT folks to measure the greenhouse gas emissions made by the traveling trash, but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the point. What the Trash Track team is really trying to do is show the urban majority what happens to our stuff after it leaves the curb. Their hope is that the maps of garbage migration will make us change our behaviorâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;perhaps take a real, reusable mug with us to carry our coffee. That would be a start, a small act to demonstrate that the maps of garbage migration brought expulsion from the fantasy land called â&#x20AC;&#x153;away.â&#x20AC;?

The garbage odyssey does not follow biological patterns; it is not efficient.

6^cRWP6Pa]PRWP. Grenache, long known as the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;fleshyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; grape that gives heft to Hearty Burgundy, finally gets some respect By James Knight

>

n top of a dusty hill overlooking the Ukiah Valley, a few acres of grapevines rioting with light green, spiky foliage and laden in nearly biblical fecundity with clusters of blue-gray grapes the size of footballs stand as tall as men. To anyone familiar only with domesticated vineyards within the neat confines of trellis wire, its looks like a throwback to a simpler age; it looks, in fact, like a viticultural land of the lost. Meet Grenache, a staple of ordinary wines the world over thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also the source of some of the North Bayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most interesting, vibrant new wines. Despite its persistent obscurityâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and an old reputation as a workhorse blending fruitâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; Grenache has ardent supporters. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I love that grape,â&#x20AC;? Peter Mathis says wistfully. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was the whole reason I went in the wine business.â&#x20AC;? Mathis says he developed an intense passion for the wines of the south of France, leaving a non-wine career when he decided

that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d make this kind of wine in the United Statesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;eventually. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It actually took 20 years to the day from when the light bulb went off to when I sold first my bottle,â&#x20AC;? he laughs. But this is high praise for Grenache, considering that Mathisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; day job is head winemaker at Ravenswood Winery, synonymous with the cult of Zinfandel. Grenache is no wimpy wine either, according to Mathis, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not circumspect on the subject. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I associate Grenache with cheerfulness, joy and happiness,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It feels nice in your mouth, it smells beautiful and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a labor to figure out why itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s appealing. A lot of grapes are cerebral; you have to learn to like them, essentially. With Grenache, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s natural.â&#x20AC;? At once simple and seductive, Grenache almost seems like a spoiler for all that we learned in Premium Reds 1A: Cabernet Sauvignon has powerful structure because of small, thickskinned, dark berries. Pinot Noir, with delicate flavors, is reputedly shy-bearing, and fades fast outside its narrow comfort zone. Grenache is light colored, thin-skinned and rudely

abundant, producing bumper crops under extreme conditions all over the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and makes a serious wine thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more versatile and approachable than Cabernet, yet more hearty and just as sensuous as Pinot. Often described as â&#x20AC;&#x153;fleshy,â&#x20AC;? itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got a body that lends itself to rosĂŠ and red alike, and its forward raspberry, strawberry fruit may be spiked with wild, woodsy herbes de Provence aromas. At its best, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not hard to imagine asking, where have you been all my life? Called Garnacha in Spain, the grape has its origins in the Medieval kingdom of Aragon. Ground-hugging, old-vine Garnacha bushes are dry-farmed even in the arid Iberian plains, naturally limiting its productivity and resulting in intensely spicy, jammy wines. When Grenache wound up in Southern France, it found a little more rainfall and somewhat more prestige. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the principal grape of the Châteauneufdu-Pape appellation, the heart of the Southern RhĂ´ne and former papal summer home. There, Grenache is blended with Syrah and any of a bakerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dozen varietals to make powerful red winesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;or nearly equally famous rosĂŠ. &+ THE BOHEMIAN

In Australia, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a standard ingredient for sparkling wines, sherry and port for over 150 years. These days, oldvine Grenache is blended with Syrah and Mourvedre, for which the Australians have a typically straightforward alternative to the Franco-centric â&#x20AC;&#x153;RhĂ´ne-styleâ&#x20AC;? tag that dogs American wines: GSM. Long grown in Californiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Central Valley for sheer quantity, Grenache has been the steady darling of the jug wine trade. A Western Farm Press article recently boasted that one 90-year-old vineyard still produces 11 tons per acre, roughly three times the North Coast average. Although these grapes actually end up as white Grenache, a sweet blush wine similar to equally pink â&#x20AC;&#x153;white Zinfandel,â&#x20AC;? itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a safe bet that the recipe for Hearty Burgundy is not exactly heavy on Pinot Noir. But the new Grenache is not the same as the old Grenache. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A combination of site, clone and vineyard practices will yield darker grapes and wine,â&#x20AC;? Mathis explains. He planted Alicante Bouschet, Petite Sirah and Carignane in his field, primarily to deepen the color. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a RhĂ´ne-style blend, with a California twist, because Mathis feels that the traditional French components donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t necessarily harmonize the same way on our edge of the world. Perhaps the main factor driving quality is the availability of imported clones; to wit, the new Grenache, same as the Old World Grenache. When Tablas Creek Vineyard set out to plant a traditional RhĂ´ne vineyard near Paso Robles, they werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t satisfied with the old California plant material that was available. So they sent for clones from their sister winery, which conveniently happens to be the venerable Chateau Beaucastle in Châteauneuf-du-Pape. As the new â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tablas Creekâ&#x20AC;? clones, and others, are planted in North Bay vineyards and farmed for lower yields, old assumptions are being testedâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; with tasty results. Up in foggy, cool Bennett Valley, Peter Young consulted an expert before planting his Graystack Vineyard. Grenache, said the expert, â&#x20AC;&#x153;wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ripen until Christmas.â&#x20AC;? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s doing beautifully well before Halloween, thank you, the vigorous, vertically trellised vines producing compact, dark colored clusters for Broc Cellars, Pax and other wineries. Pushing his luck, Young picked the lateripening grapes extra early one year, prompting the tongue-in-cheek â&#x20AC;&#x153;Peterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Follyâ&#x20AC;? label. The result was a dark, brooding leathery-black cherry brew. Not so foolish after all. Just across the hill in Kenwood, Landmark Vineyards is best known for Chardonnay, so when they planted a new plot right on the highway and called it Esprit du RhĂ´ne, it attracted attention. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We could have planted more Chardonnay very easily,â&#x20AC;? says owner Mike Colhoun, â&#x20AC;&#x153;because thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what we do.â&#x20AC;? But they wanted to put in something different, something with a finer fix on terroir. After several treks to the RhĂ´ne Valley, they decided on a mix that includes Grenache. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In a six-month growing season,â&#x20AC;? Colhoun found, â&#x20AC;&#x153;the RhĂ´ne was one

degree off. The climate in Kenwood is incredibly similar to that of the southern RhĂ´ne.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Grenache is almost like a Mediterranean cousin of Pinot Noir,â&#x20AC;? suggests Steven Canter, winemaker at Quivira Vineyards. Not too similar, but reminiscent, and some specimens really blur the line. Once, Canter was offered a mystery wine that he guessed was an overoaked Châteauneuf-du-Papeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;it was a big, Russian River Pinot Noir. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When Pinot is overdone, is starts to resemble â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;correctâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Grenache,â&#x20AC;? he says. For a wine-drinking public increasingly leaning on Pinot Noir, Grenache might not be such a leap.

For a wine-drinking public increasingly leaning on Pinot Noir, Grenache may not be such a leap. Unfortunately, the oft-parroted conventional wisdom on Grenache is that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a short-lived, simple wine liable to oxidize. At biodynamic Quivira, Canter counters this with a permissive â&#x20AC;&#x153;live and let oxidizeâ&#x20AC;? approach. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Let it fulfill its nature, early in its development,â&#x20AC;? he counsels. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s trueâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the must will oxidize right before your eyes. That doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll end up that way. Once the oxidizable elements have done their thing and are out of the equation, you end up with a wine whose true nature has come out. Now itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ready to face the world!â&#x20AC;? Quiviraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Grenache is aged in just 10 percent new oak barrels; the balance in 450 liter puncheons that limit exposure during aging, to retain some the flowery, primary fruit. Indeed, Quiviraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Grenache is a vibrant cherry-red, with bright fruit flavors accented with forest and herbs. Grenache may not get its own shelf in the supermarket any time soon, but it does have its advocates. While Syrah gets the limelight at the Central Coastâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual Hospice du RhĂ´ne and at Rhone Rangers tastings, the organizations continue to agitate for the enjoyment of RhĂ´ne-style wines in general. The best bet for curious shoppers is a trip to the local wine shop, where they may want to start with illustrative examples of CĂ´tes du RhĂ´ne and Spanish Garnacha, often for surprisingly good prices. They may find a temporary diversion from the usual, or even, like Peter Mathis did, their new â&#x20AC;&#x153;desert islandâ&#x20AC;? wine. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you had to pick one wine to drink for rest of your life,â&#x20AC;? he says with a smile, â&#x20AC;&#x153;itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a slam dunk for me.â&#x20AC;? Try some Grenache when Quivira hosts a farm-to-table harvest dinner on Saturday, Oct. 10, at 4pm. $125; includes farm tour and full meal, with vigorous pourings of the 2007 GrenacheZin and 2007 Grenache Petite Sirah blends. 4900 W.

THE BOHEMIAN

And then we hit Starkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Steakhouse, which is responding to the Great Recession by transitioning its venerable establishment away from special occasion to every occasion, heralding nine new menu items under $20, a new emphasis on seafood and fresh pasta, and with a happy hour from another planet. Monday through Friday from 3pm to 6pm, happy folks can eat and drink like newly minted royalty from a full bar menu that includes meatloaf sliders, barbecued oysters, trufďŹ&#x201A;ed fries and other comestibles for just $1.50. Each. For an extravagant $3.50, the wily diner can enjoy fondue, Indian bread, calamari, onion rings and other your-heart-will-survive-this bar-based wonders. Wednesday through Thursday, a Beefeater martini is just $2. Friday adds free live music to the mix. Like that. Our group of eight ate and drank for two full hours totaling a bill that came out to $10 per person. Best of all, the staff are as attentive and prompt as they would be were we actually newly minted royalty.

hen our twentysomething intern wanted to know about the best happy hour in the neighborhood, we looked up from our brown bag lunch blankly. Food and drinks, just for fun, in this economy? Crazy kid.

Many wine drinkers acknowledge that wine tastes better or lesser on certain days; biodynamic practitioners say that their calendar can explain that. Unfortunately, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more challenging than just following the waxing and waning of the moon. Astronomic alignments and planetary positions make a rigorous calendar, one sliced up into fruit days, root days, leaf and ďŹ&#x201A;ower days. Might has well add plain old hot, dry days into the mix.

Truett-Hurst (nĂŠe Martin Family Vineyards) is a new partnership among several longtime wine folks. The wines are currently made offsite from purchased fruit, their biodynamically farmed estate planted with choice heritage Zinfandel and Primitivo clones. The airy and barnlike tasting room is clean and welcomingly cool, furnished with rough-hewn recycled materials and abounding with rustic decor and references to resident critters. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a well-appointed patio from which to view said critters, and visitors may continue on past the gardens, to view the steelhead habitat down by the creek.

Uh-oh. The roster includes no whites, but the Zinfandel RosĂŠ ($15) is a nicely balanced refresher with some aromas of rose-petal and strawberry. Our affable host had a quirky, deadpan sense of humor and bears a passing resemblance to a midcareer Steve Martin. Since I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get his name, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll call him Steve. The Zinfandels were brambly, spicy and woodsy, with the 2006 Three Vineyards, Dry Creek Zinfandel ($25) the most subtle of strawberry fruit, spiced with white pepper and coriander. The only currently available biodynamic wine, 2007 Dark Horse (a Mourvedre, Grenache, Petite Sirah and Syrah blend, $40) was perhaps the most sumptuous of the offerings, showing red blackberry fruit, framboise, over a leathery, deep palate. And this wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even a â&#x20AC;&#x153;fruit day.â&#x20AC;? Steve says that the 2006 â&#x20AC;&#x153;Burning Manâ&#x20AC;? Petite Sirah ($33) isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t about ďŹ re, drugs and getting naked; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about campďŹ res and wine, basically. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good enough for me, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a dead-on Petite for fans of the varietal, with patent leather and purple marker over smoke, berries and tar, ďŹ nishing dry. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d want to cellar it for two or three years, or at least keep it in a deep, cool pantry out of heat like this and then open it when the stars are just right.

C78=:8=607403 The piece of paper shown at the bottom right was included in the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Heavy Mentalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; package, David Petri says, for listeners to use in case they wanted to take notes while the album played.

<P]XRBd__aTbbX^] The long, strange trip of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Heavy Mental Musicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; By Gabe Meline

8

t all started with Gary Brandt, our copy editor, who usually sits quietly in the Bohemian office correcting run-on sentences and pining for the serial comma, and who approached me with those nine magic words that will never fail to pique my interest. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hey, Gabe,â&#x20AC;? he said in a stealthy tone, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got this record you might like.â&#x20AC;? I put on my poker face. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Really?â&#x20AC;? I asked, casually. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s it like?â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s this funny little 45 made in Santa Rosa by mentally disabled people,â&#x20AC;? he said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;with a catchy synthesizer riff and lots of people saying â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I Love Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; over and over. It comes in this hand-drawn box with a shirt, a poster and some other stuff. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll bring it in.â&#x20AC;? I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe my ears. The next day, Brandt bequeathed unto me the weirdest, strangest, most incredibly unique record ever made in Sonoma County. I looked at the box, with its felt-pen scrawl and faded rubber stamps reading â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heavy Mental Music.â&#x20AC;? I rif led through its contentsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a silk-screened Heavy Mental Music T-shirt, a few photocopied Heavy Mental Music stickers, a couple Heavy Mental

Music posters and a solitary sheet of notepad paper, upon which was diminutively typed, in the corner, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heavy Mental Music.â&#x20AC;? I took it home, slid the green-vinyl record out of its handmade sleeve, and put it on the turntable. The A-side was exactly like a demo button on a Casio synthesizer: analog-electronic, repetitive and interrupted occasionally by some out-of-time percussion. It sounded amateur but captivating, and Brandt hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been kidding: at the end, people say â&#x20AC;&#x153;I love youâ&#x20AC;? into the microphone 36 times. I f lipped the record. An aggressively psychedelic sound collage, the nearly fiveminute B-side was full of backwards loops, interviews, echo effects, electronic noises, power tools, bass rumbles and incomprehensible singing. It was called â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tour,â&#x20AC;? and it was the weirdest thing Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d heard in a long time. I checked the date on the label: 1981. Between the DIY aesthetic of the homemade shirts and stickers, the fanzine-like quality of the booklet and the experimentation of the music itself, this was decidedly a record ahead of its time. It was made by somebody who worked with the developmentally disabled and probably took drugs. I was determined to find him.

1

randt, a forty-something who was once a huge Nazareth fan, had read about the record while still enrolled at Slater Junior High. Misreading â&#x20AC;&#x153;mentalâ&#x20AC;? as â&#x20AC;&#x153;metal,â&#x20AC;? he talked his dad into driving the family station wagon after school to the Manual Skills Training Center, where he was the recordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first customer. Alas, the building is no longer in use at the address listed. Strike one. The recordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s booklet listed three dozen local businesses and a short list of people, including Congressman Don Clausen, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d attended a â&#x20AC;&#x153;press partyâ&#x20AC;? for the record. My best bet looked to be Becoming Independent, which ran the training center that provided the chorus and which still serves the needs of the developmentally disabled. I walked into their Santa Rosa offices, explained my quest, and presented Heavy Mental Music to a series of surprised employees, all of whom were entranced with the artifact and none of whom worked there in 1981 or even had a copy of it. Strike two. But within minutes, I was on the phone with Jeff Shaver, who had worked at BI for 35 years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jeff,â&#x20AC;? I asked, â&#x20AC;&#x153;do the words â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Heavy '+ Mental Musicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; mean anything to you?â&#x20AC;? THE BOHEMIAN

Shaver let out a laugh of recognition. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yeah,â&#x20AC;? he said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;definitely.â&#x20AC;? Shaver told me to find David Petri. As the producer, engineer and overseer of the record, Petri apparently lived and breathed Heavy Mental Music nonstop for a year, because, Shaver explained, â&#x20AC;&#x153;it was fraught with problems. It took a lot of time.â&#x20AC;? In 1981, the whole idea was groundbreaking, he added, â&#x20AC;&#x153;because it was back in the days when people didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think of people with disabilities contributing to things artistically.â&#x20AC;? Considering the bizarre nature of the record, I asked, did anyone at the center think Petri was a little too peculiar? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t remember that being the case,â&#x20AC;? Shaver said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;David looked very straight, he always dressed well, had short hair. I think that people accepted it as something Jim did.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jimâ&#x20AC;? would be Jim Weber, the developmentally disabled client who wrote the song, loved to golf and who once ushered at a staff memberâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wedding; he left Becoming Independent in 2001 and moved away. But the name David Petri rang a bell. He was, it turns out, the singer for a Santa Rosa band called $27 Snap On Face, whose very weird album Heterodyne State Hospital Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d researched previously. Last Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d heard, he lived in Middletown.

C

wo miles up on a remote hill in Lake County, I park in the driveway to Petriâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mobile home next to a collection of broken TVs. He emerges, a tall, commanding man wearing cutoffs, flip-flops and a Paul McCartney 1991 tour T-shirt, and he apologizes for the stark dĂŠcor of the house. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only moved in the most important things, he says, like guitars, a drum setâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s currently looking for a female drummerâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; and, in fact, right inside the front door, the actual TEAC reel-to-reel player used to record Heavy Mental Music. Petri saves things. He has a two-foot pile of reel-to-reel tapes from the â&#x20AC;&#x2122;70s on his kitchen table. He has an old 1950s acetate from Stanroyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Music Center. He has an autographed Johnny Cash record from when he played Santa Rosa in 1984. Among his archive, he also has two folders dedicated to Heavy Mental Music, full of news clippings, photos, letters, videotapes and telegrams. One of them, I note, is from the White House. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Of all the things Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done,â&#x20AC;? he says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m most proud of this project. I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like the idea of disabled art, or handicapped art. I thought artâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a disability.â&#x20AC;? So when Jim Weber approached Petri with a song heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d written, the idea to record and release it seemed only natural. Petri sent many of the 3,000 copies to politicians and local media, making sure Weber was listed as the published songwriterâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the first developmentally disabled songwriter on BMIâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s roster.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;It won the Santa Rosa City Merit Award for Cultural Enrichment, and at that event, we got to read a telegram we received from Ronald Reagan,â&#x20AC;? he says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;who referred to it as a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;musical message of hope.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Weber traveled south and won an award at Disneyland presented by Walt Disneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s daughter, with â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heavy Mental Musicâ&#x20AC;? playing over the theme park loudspeakers. Evening Magazine and other news outlets spotlighted the record. It was submitted to the Grammy Awards. Publicity was heating up, and Petri started negotiating with Johnny Carsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s producers for a slot on The Tonight Show. Then the centerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s director, Rae Pivonka, called Petri into her office. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never told anybody this, ever,â&#x20AC;? he says, shifting in his chair. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She accused me of using these people for my own personal gain. It broke my heart.â&#x20AC;? She told Petri heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d pushed the program on company time, had used the company facility and that she wanted him to stop promoting Heavy Mental Music and give over the master tapes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I never surrender my masters!â&#x20AC;? Petri booms. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rather than bring negativity to the clients and the integrity of the project,â&#x20AC;? he adds, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I pulled the plug that day and rounded up every single copy in the school.â&#x20AC;? In a few months, he left the Manual Skills Training Center, but sitting in his living room in Middletown 27 years later, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s obvious heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still saddened by the accusation. Pivonka passed away in 2006, but she was no doubt aware that any time art and the developmentally disabled converge, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a tricky line walked between advocacy and mockery. I could see how Heavy Mental Music could be seen by a cautious director as the latter, especially the B-side. I pull out a tape recorder and we listen to â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tourâ&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Petri says he hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t heard it in yearsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and he can still point out the Skilsaw, the metronome, the typewriter, the air conditioning unit and he remembers the name of every client involved, even the ones whose voices are sped-up like chipmunks or slowed down like monsters. But was it drug-induced? Petri takes a breath. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I never record and create my music on drugs,â&#x20AC;? he declares. Petri still has about 25 copies of Heavy Mental Music, and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s glad to hear that there was some genuine amazement and interest around BIâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s offices when Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d stopped by with a copy, providing a sort of closure for something that had always bothered him. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always wondered what Becoming Independent thought, honestly, about this in hindsight,â&#x20AC;? Petri says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;How they felt. Were they proud of it? Do they wish they had a copy? Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be honored to take it to them, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always been hesitant to go back.â&#x20AC;?

Tallying ability scores in indie rockâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mysticism By Gabe Meline

:

nights! Swords! Crystals! Goblets! With more indie-rock bands turning to fantasy imagery in their music videos lately, it can be a truly draining prospect to judge which ones are serious about their wizardly ways and which bands are just superficially glomming onto the trend. Whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got it right? We turned for interpretation to Joe Yull, a 23-year-old fantasy and role-playing expert at Outer Planes Comics and Games in Santa Rosa. I knew Yull was the right man for the job after he displayed knowledge of both the classics (Hawkwindâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s collaboration with fantasy writer Michael Moorcock) and the trivial (Weezerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shout-out to 12-sided die). On a recent Sunday evening, Yull and I hung out in Outer Planes at one of their Magic: The Gathering gaming tables, sat in front of YouTube and tried to make sense of it all. With experience and skill, Yull deftly separated the dungeon masters from the dolts, and summarily rated each bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s role-playing strength on a scale of one to 10. Muse, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Knights of Cydoniaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; A toughlooking character with a mustache practices kung fu moves like â&#x20AC;&#x153;Two-Headed Snakeâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Circle of Deathâ&#x20AC;? while receiving occasional blessings from a raven and shooting lasers from his revolver. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got kung fu, lasers and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a cowboy,â&#x20AC;? Yull notes approvingly. This looks good so far. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to tell if the video is inspired by the role-playing game Deadlands, because so much crazy stuff is happening in every frame. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For no reason, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s beating the shit out of people, but you can tell heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a bad guy,â&#x20AC;? Yull says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got this gun that shoots light, but heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s obviously looted it from somewhere, because heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s post-apocalyptic.â&#x20AC;?

The damsel heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s trying to save shows up on a unicorn with some menacing Mongolian dancer and is usurped by an evil dark sheriff who sends her to the hanging gallows. But lo! Our avenging hero blasts through the noose with the laser gun, saves the girl, evades the sheriff â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s strike and vaporizes his enemy. An epic victory. Rating: 9.5. Bat for Lashes, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Prescillaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; A girl in some sort of Gypsy get-up hangs out with a posse who appear to have the power to levitate. One guy dents a washing machine with a large boulder, which is kind of badass in a useless way, and though the Gypsy girl takes possession of a dagger, she focuses more attention on her two hairbrushes. Hairbrushes, Yull affirms, never have any special powers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In fact, based on who usually plays roleplaying games,â&#x20AC;? he says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I doubt hairbrushes ever come up in the context of any of them.â&#x20AC;? After the Gypsy girl almost gets eaten by the set of Pee-Weeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Playhouse and is propositioned by a vacuum cleaner, she canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take it anymore and retreats back into the real world. Retreat, of course, is the ultimate weakness. Yull points out that the name â&#x20AC;&#x153;Priscillaâ&#x20AC;? is found in Edmund Spenserâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 16thcentury allegorical epic The Faerie Queen, but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not enough to redeem the hairbrushes and the misplaced rage against a washing machine. Rating: 3. Yacht, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Psychic Cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; What appears like a simple battle between a holy minister and a juniper-wielding pagan soon turns perplexing. The minister, with crucifix nunchucks, gorges himself on communion wafers and wine before commencing to masturbate. The pagan girl spreads some mesmerizing powder and wields a staff of death. The battle turns friendly, however, and the minister and the pagan rip their clothes

off under a crescent moon and start licking each otherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s faces. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Honestly,â&#x20AC;? Yull recoils, â&#x20AC;&#x153;if I saw any of this going on, I would just leave.â&#x20AC;? This brings up a good pointâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;that the band could easily bamboozle their opponents out of any confrontation. In fact, in most role-playing games, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a common and powerful spell called confusion. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very effective,â&#x20AC;? Yull assures. Rating: 6. Celebration, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Evergreenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; A girl in a fringe dress collects crystals in a carved wooden box, unsuccessfully balances crystals on some goblets and spreads crystal seeds across the arid desert, growing a crystal groundcover. Yull explains that thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a group of psychic people called Scions in Dungeons and Dragons who use crystals for straight-up New Age weirdness, but the girl and her minions donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem to be very adept at it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;OK, so they can beautify the landscape with weird growing crystals,â&#x20AC;? Yull allows. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Interesting. Doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really seem to be too useful.â&#x20AC;? However, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to walk on crystals, and no one wants his habitat turned into the Emerald City. Yull points out that the seeded crystals could probably devastate cropland. Overall, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re pretty weak. Rating: 3.5. Devendra Banhart, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;A Ribbonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; In this feeble narrative, a wispy red ribbon floats underwater through coral and fish before communing with the birds. At the videoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s end, the ribbon flies into a manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mouth, rendering his body aglow. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A ribbon is not that impressive,â&#x20AC;? Yull says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hurt people with it.â&#x20AC;? Rating: 2. Built to Spill, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Conventional Wisdomâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; In chainmail armor, an elder swordsman trains with his weapons in the sunset. The band members arrive, are assigned horses and train with the master. They, too, adorn the steel helmets and breastplates for the epic jousting battle with the black knight. The duel ends amicably, and all parties shake hands. This reminds Yull of the Society for Creative Anachronism, a Middle Ages reenactment group which practices combat and chivalry among its â&#x20AC;&#x153;kingdomsâ&#x20AC;? nationwide. Also, the elder swordsman is an Obi Wan-Kenobi figure, Yull says. These are all good things, which triumph even over Yachtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s relatively high rating for â&#x20AC;&#x153;Psychic City.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;He could probably take down those people who throw confusion at you,â&#x20AC;? Yull surmises. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be fazed too much by the communion wafers or ejaculate. That might just irritate him.â&#x20AC;? Rating: 7. Dirty Projectors, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Stillness Is the Moveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; OK, so weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a llama. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got people wandering around the wilderness with musical instruments. And . . . thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about it. There are some Siberian huskies that the wolfman has tamed and some girls who appear to be either bridesmaids in celebration or sirens attempting to mesmerize the wolfman with the booty. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He seems to be doing pretty well for himself, by these peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s standards, at least,â&#x20AC;? Yull says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m somehow more impressed by these people just given the fact that, according to the video, they seem to be able to actually survive out in the woods.â&#x20AC;? Yull likens them to the Rangers from Lord of the Rings, who kill bears for breakfast and stuff. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s obviously a ranger. Obviously,â&#x20AC;? says Yull. Rating: 5.

Anatomy of a teenage metal band

RECEI V E A H A IRCU T W I T H MEN T ION OF T HIS A D 122 FOURTH STREET | SANTA ROSA

By Karl Byrn

uccess in the music business can take years or it can happen overnight. Either way, local teen metal sensation Intangled are off to a solid start. The young trioâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;guitarist Jimmy Kennedy, age 16, bassist Zane Covington, age 15, and drummer Shane Sebald, age 12â&#x20AC;&#x201D;all have advanced natural talent, skills self-taught from devoted attention to bands from the golden age of speed metal and thrash like Slayer, Iron Maiden and Megadeth. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My iPod is my bass lesson,â&#x20AC;? says Covington, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been playing with Sebald ever since they were ages nine and six. In these early years, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve already played dozens of all-ages shows and had tracks played on local radio, including North Bay Underground on Fox 101.7-FM. For Intangled, metal isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a way to rebel, but rather a way to bond. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think nowadays itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot different,â&#x20AC;? Covington says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a thrash revival going on. I saw a documentary trailer talking about how parents were into it, sharing their old tapes and vinyl. Now you listen to metal because your parents listen to it, and you like it too.â&#x20AC;?

Importantly, the band members have a dynamic support system at home and at school. Intangledâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s practice space is the living room at Sebaldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home, proudly offered by his parents due to its hassle-free rural location outside Petaluma. Extended family is there for rides, support at shows and as an ongoing source of exposure to metal and classic rock. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I like helping the kids, because I can enjoy the music with them. My parents never did that with me,â&#x20AC;? says Shaneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dad, Eric Sebald, who serves as the bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s de facto manager and also takes the guys to local shows and big gigs like Ozzfest. At school, Intangled became peer favorites gradually. Kennedy and Covington are sophomores at Santa Rosa High School, where they say Intangled were rejected from last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Battle of the Bands both because they were freshman and because their image was deemed offensive. Yet their popularity has risen. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Anyone who sees us perform loves us,â&#x20AC;? Kennedy says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I went into the music room at our school and someone had carved â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Intangled Rulesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; in the piano. Nobody told us about itâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;it was just there.â&#x20AC;? Covington adds, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s better this year than last year. We know all the metal heads, there are other people coming up, and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re really trying to get people to start bands.â&#x20AC;? Drummer Sebald, who attends Twin Oaks Middle School in Sebastopol, notes that at his school â&#x20AC;&#x153;last year only two people liked metal. This year, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve given out a whole bunch of demos, and everybody loves it.â&#x20AC;? He reports that a history teacher even played their demo in class at the request of fellow students. Likewise, Covington mentions a favorite English teacher who has publicly shouted out the awesomeness of Iron Maiden. Intangledâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s popularity is set to spike when they release their first full-length album this fall. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re completing eight new originals to add to a four-song demo recorded this summer at Santa Rosaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Atlas Studios, where they were recently featured at a sold-out all-ages show. Kennedy says the new track â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thrown to Oblivionâ&#x20AC;? is a song â&#x20AC;&#x153;from the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Viking metalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; subgenre,â&#x20AC;? while new songs like â&#x20AC;&#x153;Slaveâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Path of Sufferingâ&#x20AC;? feature classic driving rock thrust. Often, song verses feature the two guitarists on alternating vocal parts in their ongoing exploration of thrash songwriting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We never write songs the same way,â&#x20AC;? Kennedy says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Three months later it will sound completely different. The songâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not done when you write it that day.â&#x20AC;? Intangledâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s music is far from finished, and their ability to be a next-generation metal band is huge. Covington notes that he aspires to â&#x20AC;&#x153;have the craziest audiences and the craziest shows.â&#x20AC;? Acknowledging that youth presents challenges, he also appreciates its opportunities. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll talk to some bands that are like, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Wow, you guys play at your drummerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s house, and they make you food and everything? You guys are lucky.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? He stops and ref lects. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are one of the luckiest bands around.â&#x20AC;? Intangled hit the main stage with Thought Vomit, Devour the Masses and Importaletum on Friday, Oct. 2, at the Phoenix Theatre. 201 Washington St., Petaluma. 8pm. $8; all ages. 707.762.3565.

=TeTa C^^;PcT

Over three decades after his death, Jim McPhersonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s music comes alive By Bruce Robinson

5

or more than 30 years, Evy McPherson has kept the boxes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Anyplace I lived, anywhere I went, they always went with me,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I kept them safe all these years.â&#x20AC;? Their contents? Precious, irreplaceable tapes recorded by her late husband, a highly regarded Bay Area songwriter who died in 1975â&#x20AC;&#x201D;tapes that have now emerged from those boxes to become the new CD, A Promise Kept, the showcase for his music that Jim McPherson always wanted but never saw. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Probably about a month before he passed away, he was pretty upset that from his perspective, he felt that he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a legacy to leave,â&#x20AC;? Evy recalls. â&#x20AC;&#x153;From my perspective, he had all this music. But to him, he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have his own album done, so I made a promise that I would finish it for him. And I knew I would do it. I just didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t realize it would take me all these years to do it.â&#x20AC;? Jim McPherson was a Chicago native who studied violin as a boy and had a solid command of multiple instruments by the time he landed at San Jose State in 1964. There, he anchored locally popular bands

the Trolls and Stained Glass, playing bass and writing most of their original material before drifting north to Marin County, where he met John Cipollina. He soon joined the former Quicksilver Messenger Service guitaristâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new band, Copperhead. Despite immense potential and a growing reputation as a live act, Copperhead disintegrated soon after recording their only LP, a respectable major label release that got scant promotional support. At that point, McPherson turned his attention to the creation of a solo record, and began a series of low-key sessions with Mickey Hart at the Grateful Dead drummerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Novato ranch. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jim was my best friend, and he lived with me there and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what we did,â&#x20AC;? Hart recalls. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He worked out all of his songs and I learned how to record. [The sessions] were really very loose, mostly just me and him. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I loved McPhersonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s voice. He could sing, he could write, he could play piano, he could play bass, play guitar. The one good thing was, he couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t play drums,â&#x20AC;? Hart adds with a low chuckle. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jim just liked to play and find those beautiful places. There was no hurry. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And they just turned out real well.â&#x20AC;? But at the same time, McPhersonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health began to decline. After a visit to an acupuncturist (not then legal or regulated in California), â&#x20AC;&#x153;we wound up getting hep B,â&#x20AC;? Evy says quietly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My body made antibodies, but Jimâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s never did.â&#x20AC;? He succumbed to liver disease a few months later, and his tapes went into their boxes. Half a lifetime later, digital technology provided an opening. Evy was led to ace engineer Tom Size, who digitized and polished the old tapes, and two old musical friends, Bobby Vega and Pete Sears, replaced bass and organ parts on a couple songs that had not survived the intervening years. The result is a warm, assured collection of 11 of McPhersonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s songs that range from introspective balladry to tuneful pop to rollicking full-band romps. Even though many of the original takes were meant just as demos for McPhersonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s songs, Mickey Hart has â&#x20AC;&#x153;no doubt people would have picked up on the songs and covered them,â&#x20AC;? had they been circulated before now. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He would have turned into one hell of a songwriter if he were alive today. I mean, he was just starting to feel liberated from his past when we were together.â&#x20AC;? For Evy, who served as executive producer, completing the CD represents a different sort of liberation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t realize modern technology had to catch up with me,â&#x20AC;? she marvels. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s amazing what was able to happen. I just always loved his music, and now itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s better than ever.â&#x20AC;? An impressive list of McPhersonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s former musical partners and admirers will assemble for a one-time CD release party in Mill Valley on Oct. 1, a cast that includes Sears, Vega, David Freiberg (with whom McPherson wrote the Jefferson Starship hit â&#x20AC;&#x153;Janeâ&#x20AC;?), Nick Gravenites, Prairie Prince and many others. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is so much more than I ever thought,â&#x20AC;? Evy McPherson says, haltingly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you make a promise . . . you gotta keep your promises.â&#x20AC;? The release party for â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;A Promise Keptâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; takes place on Thursday, Oct. 1, at 142 Throckmorton Theater, 142 Throckmorton Ave., Mill Valley. 8pm. $20â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$45. 415.383.9600.

Internet powerhouse Pandora may just save the music industry By David Sason

;

ast Thursday, Dominican University of California in San Rafael hosted a very different kind of town hall meeting. While no fundamentalists were apparent, a near-religious fervor pervaded the lecture hall for the latest Pandora â&#x20AC;&#x153;GetTogether,â&#x20AC;? hosted by the popular internet radio and music-discovery service. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m the chief evangelist,â&#x20AC;? founder Tim Westergren told the classroom with a laugh. No wonder, since Oakland-based Pandora is todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s premier online radio service, boasting 35 million listeners across the United States, with 65,000 new registered listeners a day. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s readily obvious by talking with this youthful 43-year-old that he enjoys his job. Back in 2000, along with Will Glaser and Jon Kraft, the Stanford graduate began the ambitious Music Genome Project, a scientific examination of songs using vectors and algorithms that eventually lead to the creation of Pandora, a music aggregate that dispenses songs in the form of â&#x20AC;&#x153;stationsâ&#x20AC;? that are completely unique for each listener. First, a listener picks an artist or genre to create a â&#x20AC;&#x153;station.â&#x20AC;? The userâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tastes are determined each time he or she clicks â&#x20AC;&#x153;thumbs upâ&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;thumbs downâ&#x20AC;? buttons indicating preference; the â&#x20AC;&#x153;skipâ&#x20AC;? button is neutral. To ensure exposure to new music, no

more than four songs from the same artist are played in a three-hour period on any given userâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s station. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every submission gets a listen,â&#x20AC;? Westergren says of the 12,000 new songs that come in per month, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but it has to be good.â&#x20AC;? To increase critical consistency, each of Pandoraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 50 music analysts typically holds a four-year degree in music theory and undergoes a rigorous 100-hour training regimen. Such an innovative approach to radio engenders interesting challenges, as with eclectic artists. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A station based on Frank Zappa doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work very well,â&#x20AC;? Westergren says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and Beck is a pain in the ass, musicologically speaking.â&#x20AC;? The technology can sometimes be jarring, as in the case of a young man who was irate that a Celine Dion song played on his Sarah McLachlan station. After Westergren verified that all the variables worked, nothing was left but the ugly truth. â&#x20AC;&#x153;His last email said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Oh, my God, I like Celine Dion!â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Westergren laughs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t put much stock in cultural prejudices.â&#x20AC;? Just as admirable is Pandoraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bucking of major record labels. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Seventy-seven percent of our artists are independent,â&#x20AC;? he says. As a touring musician himself for yearsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;he played in a band called Yellowwood Junctionâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; Westergren hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forgotten the musicianâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s struggle to make a living. Through Pandora, he says, he can offer a new revenue stream for artists. While Pandora makes money from ads on its site and commission from music sales through iTunes and Amazon, the company has never advertised, relying purely on word of mouth. When the Copyright Royalty Board ruling tripled its required royalty payments in 2007, Pandora was saved by their supporters, with 400,000 letters and faxes reaching Capitol Hill in three daysâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; more than those protesting the Iraq War. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is definitely disturbing, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fine for us,â&#x20AC;? he says, and resulting negotiations enabled Pandora to stay afloat. This devotion was fully visible at Dominican, with people of all ages thanking Westergren. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You nailed it,â&#x20AC;? a middle-aged lady gushed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had really strange taste my entire life, and now Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve gotten into so much new music!â&#x20AC;? While one older gentleman found Pandoraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s classical offerings too limited, most were elated with the service. According to Westergren, Pandoraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s biggest competitor is traditional radio. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Those are the listeners we want,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most of our listeners are in their 20s and 30s, but our fastest growth [is with listeners who are] far older. And theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re no longer being served by the broadcast industry.â&#x20AC;? Pandora supports the controversial Performance Rights Act, which would require radio stations to pay royalties to musicians. Pandora already does this. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We think the performer should be paid for radio play,â&#x20AC;? Westergren says simply. While Pandora isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t profitable yetâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; Westergren hopes to be by yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s endâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;its achievement remains a scintillating reminder of why music fans should run the music business. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You will never hear a song on Pandora because a record label told us to,â&#x20AC;? Westergren told the group to rapturous applause. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an algorithm that deserves a huge thumbs-up. To experience Pandora for yourself, visit www.pandora.com.

Is the in-its-entirety album concert a gimmick or a kindness?

By Leilani Clark

8

n June 2009, college-rock darlings the Pixies made an announcement that thrilled aging indie rockers. The band would commemorate the 20th anniversary of their release Doolittle with a tour featuring a live replay of the album in its entirety. For a band who hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hit the recording studio since 1991, the buzz around the Doolittle tour was tremendous, with people clamoring to see the band perform their most beloved album. According to the Pixiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; publicist Holly Ellen Robinson-Fitzgerald, ticket demand for the Doolittle tour is even bigger than the Pixiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; initial 2004 reunion tour. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It took about an hour for Londonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 20,000 and Brusselsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 8,000 tickets to be grabbed up, while all 2,600 tickets for the two-night stand in Dublin were gone in under two minutes, causing a third showâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;also sold-outâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;to be added,â&#x20AC;? she stated in a tour press release. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At this stage of the game, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not trying to reinterpret the music,â&#x20AC;? Black recently explained to the website Music Radar. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re more about replicating records and replicating certain expectations rather than getting all jazzed about it.â&#x20AC;? As more and more bands announce the performance of entire albums live, the question arises: Is this an artistically motivated attempt to recreate an emotionally compelling creation, or is it an easy way to get fans to plunk down hardearned cash for sold-out shows? The list of big-name acts performing old albums in their entirety continues to grow. In September, Bruce Springsteen treated Chicago fans to a reprise of Born to

Run in its entirety. This past spring, MĂśtley CrĂźe celebrated the 20th anniversary of their glam-rock classic Dr. Feelgood with performances of the album. The Melvins dusted off their most accessible album Houdini for a short tour in 2008. The once stage-shy Steely Dan plans will perform Aja as well as The Royal Scam during select October tour dates. Devo recently announced a plan to play back-to-back nights of Q: Are We Not Men? A: We are Devo! and Freedom of Choice, revisiting the pinnacle of their career success. Like the Pixies, some of these artists have not written a new song in years, but that hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stopped them from â&#x20AC;&#x153;giving the people what they want,â&#x20AC;? which seems to be recycled tunes sung in a new era. Fans are torn on the issue. While some have rushed out to buy tickets, others view the albums-in-their entirety tours as a moneymaking grab. One particularly virulent commenter on NPRâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s All Songs Considered blog grumbled that the Pixies should get back together for real, record a new album and tour with new songs or â&#x20AC;&#x153;hang it up.â&#x20AC;? So when exactly did the concept of performing an entire album live from start to finish begin? Barry Hogan, founder of All Tomorrowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Partiesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a yearly music festival curated by different artistsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;has publicly claimed responsibility for the trend, saying it began in 2004 with the Stooges playing Fun House for his festivalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s successful, ironically named Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Look Back series. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Look Back has attracted numerous artists. In 2008, Public Enemy dusted off It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back.

Cat Power has performed her complete melancholy gem The Covers Record at ATP, while Sonic Youth treated ecstatic fans to their epic guitar-noodler Daydream Nation during a 2007 tour. But what about the potential dark side to the trend? How many bands are going to jump on the bandwagon before it overflows with the scary prospect of MC Hammer breaking out the gold pants for a reprisal of Please Hammer Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Hurt â&#x20AC;&#x2122;Em? Matt Breece, a long-time fan of the Cult who owns copies of their album Love on CD, vinyl and cassette, had no qualms about buying a ticket for this summerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s performance of the album in San Diego. He also doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cause for concern regarding the avalanche of bands playing entire albums live. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I knew exactly what to expect as far as set list was concerned. I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have gone if I thought they were playing a mix of new and old material,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Playing an entire album guaranteed I wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to listen to a lot of new songs that werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t that good.â&#x20AC;? Rather than seeing the tour by a nostalgic favorite as a grab for money, Breece has a different take on the albums-in-their-entirety concept: he believes that the art of the album is being lost. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We increasingly live in an iTunes world where people listen to just a couple songs by an artist and rarely listen to a full album from start to finish. An entire album can have the arc of a novel or a film, being a complete artistic piece,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nice to listen to the performance as a complete piece rather than a greatest-hits shuffle. It revitalizes the album as a work of art.â&#x20AC;? Other fans have loved seeing albums in their entirety strictly for the nostalgia factor. Last year, Liz Phair celebrated the 15th anniversary of her most critically successful album, 1993â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Exile in Guyville, with a series of performances. Jessica Duran of Sonoma County was at the San Francisco show, and for her, being transported back in time was one of the nightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most enjoyable factors. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was fantastic! Like a time warp, I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have dreamed up better,â&#x20AC;? Duran says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Liz was all denim cutoffs and ripped tights, just like the days when her album came out. It was like she recreated her entire early â&#x20AC;&#x2122;90s self, and it was perfect.â&#x20AC;? To Duran, seeing Exile in Guyville allowed fans to remember the Phair that they had loved years before, rather than the majorlabel singer who went on to sing radiofriendly hits. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was definitely a way for her to revisit and reconnect with her early success, before she â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;jumped the sharkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and started singing cotton-candy lyrics,â&#x20AC;? Duran says. With tickets selling for upwards of $50â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$70 for most in-its-entirety tours, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something to be said for knowing exactly what one is getting into. When the Pixies play Doolittle, everyone will know that â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bone Machineâ&#x20AC;? will be followed by â&#x20AC;&#x153;Debaser.â&#x20AC;? The spontaneous glory of impulse and improvisation, in a way, might be lost to the comfort of the expected, the backward fall into nostalgiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s warm embrace. It can be fun to remember old times, but like the high school quarterback after school is out, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a danger in relying too much on past glories. As long as the money rolls in and the crowds continue to yearn for the oldies but goodies, bands will be content to do just thatâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;in its entirety.

Narrow Way steps up with savage â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Riff Raff â&#x20AC;&#x2122; By David Templeton

8

n a garbage-strewn, rat-infested room in a derelict Brooklyn apartment, two petty criminals are hiding out after a Halloweennight drug deal gone terribly wrong. Billy â&#x20AC;&#x153;Torchâ&#x20AC;? Murphy is sick, bleeding and terrified. Mike Leon, known as â&#x20AC;&#x153;20/20â&#x20AC;? for his ability to see details that escape others, can only see one way out of this particular jamâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;by reaching out to his childhood friend (and one-time prison cell mate) Tony â&#x20AC;&#x153;the Tigerâ&#x20AC;? Lee, who long ago traded his life of crime for a wife, kids and a laundromat business. The result, as conceived by playwright Laurence Fishburne (yep, that Laurence Fishburne), is a savage battle of wits, emotions and tenuous family bonds that plays as part mystery-thriller, part slice-of-life drama and part hip-hop tone poem. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the kind of playâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; edgy, risky and rawâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;with which Narrow Way Stage Company first established its reputation as the bold, ballsy new kid on the block. Founded in 2005, Narrow Way has proven itself willing to tackle almost anything, injecting an intense, fearless, occasionally scattershot energy into subjects ranging from bedroom farce to Shakespeare. With Riff Raff, presented by Sixth Street Playhouse as part of its ongoing â&#x20AC;&#x153;guest artistâ&#x20AC;? series, Narrow Wayâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;working with director Adam Palafoxâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;has taken a mighty step forward, unleashing Fishburneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s angry, urban exorcism with a blend of ferocious energy and electrifyingly messy invention. That invention is most visible in Palafoxâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision to double-cast the show, with two sets of actors taking turns each performance. As a result, every show is different, as various combinations of actors change the energy and chemistry from night to night, inviting multiple viewings from the audience. (Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve now seen it twice.) In the role of Mike, a small-time criminal with a passive-aggressive sense of loyalty to friends and family, Dan Farley and Chris Ginesi

put entirely different spins on the character. Farleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mike is a frightened, abandoned boy wrapped in a frail facade of calculated tough-guy bravado; Ginesi plays Mike as more openly vulnerable, all twitchy nerves and innocent selfdelusion. Playing Torch, Mikeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recently discovered half-brother, Clint Campbell evokes an angry void, a human hole long ago filled up with empty rumblings of rage and resentment. In the same role, the heartbreaking and astonishingly believable Freddie Lambert is so good at reflecting Torchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s emotional and physical pain it actually hurts to watch him. As Tony, Nick Christenson and Dan Saski couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be more different. Christensonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Tony is an imposing presence whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s clearly not fully comfortable with himself and his choices except in the company of those who either fear or respect him. In another first-rate performance, Saski (recently seen in the Repâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Three Musketeers) delivers Tony as a smart, shrewd â&#x20AC;&#x153;little guy,â&#x20AC;? who is always thinking and weighing the risks, even when delivering scathingly hilarious prison-yard poetry. Not all of this works smoothly. The range in experience among the actors shows, and the pacing skews wildly from scene to sceneâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and with the rotating casting, from night to night. The play itself is sometimes a bit of a problem. Though imbued with three truly captivating, layered characters, Fishburneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s freshman effort carries an unfortunate disingenuousness in its plot, with some of the characters asked to behave in ways early on that, once all of the mysteries are revealed at the climax, seem entirely false for those people as weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve now come to see them. Still, as an exercise in balls-out acting, as a breath of fresh air in the sometimes too-safe arena of North Bay theater, Narrow Wayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Riff Raff is vivid, wild and never less than thrilling.

sk fans of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best film festivals, and they will certainly tell you that a festival is only as good as its films. Star-studded receptions and galas, onstage celebrity appearances, major studio sneak-peaks and advance Oscar buzz are only the icing on the cake, and if the cake isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t all that tasty, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no reason to come to the party. With appearances by Clive Owen, Uma Thurman and Woody Harrelson, a very star-studded opening-night gala and a closing-night party shipboard in the San Francisco Bay, this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mill Valley Film Festival, produced by the California Film Institute and screening at its Christopher B. Smith Rafael Film Center as well as throughout Mill Valley, is one of the best. Yet the quality of the films remains the definition of a festivalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s importance, as evinced by the power of the story they tell, and there are plenty of film fans who have come to the conclusion that a story is even more powerful when it is real. This explains the growing number of documentaries which show up annually at the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best cinematic celebrations, including the MVFF, running Oct. 8â&#x20AC;&#x201C;18. This year, nearly one-quarter of the films on display are documentaries, many of them shining their artistically journalistic light on high-profile homo sapiens whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve made their marks in and around the Bay Area. Of these, the loftiest nameâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and not the least because it has appeared on a zillion cartons of Ben & Jerryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ice creamâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;belongs to Wavy Gravy. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s festival includes

THE BOHEMIAN



two screenings of Michelle Esrickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s muchanticipated (and cleverly titled) Saint Misbehavinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;: The Wavy Gravy Movie (Oct. 9 at Sequoia; Oct. 13 at the Rafael), an affectionate and eyeopening look at the man who evolved from being Bob Dylanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s standup-comic roommate and the clown-clad master of ceremonies at Woodstock into his current station as spiritual goof ball, fundraiser extraordinaire, Berkeley commune dweller and daily practitioner of practical compassion. Described by Paul Krassner as â&#x20AC;&#x153;the illegitimate child of Harpo Marx and Mother Teresa,â&#x20AC;? Wavy Gravy is depicted in the film as the unlikeliest of role models, a street-smart activist who practices what he preaches, and preaches mainly by juggling balls, dropping bad puns and dressing like a clown. The film was seven years in the making, and includes interviews with members of the Grateful Dead, Bonnie Raitt, Jackson Browne, Ramblinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Jack Elliott, Odetta, Patch Adams, Buffy Sainte-Marie and the residents of Wavy Gravyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hog Farm commune. While Gravy exemplifies a particular kind of everyday grace in action, Marin Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Anna Halprin stands as a symbol of another incredibly potent form of grace. In Breath Made Visible (Oct. 10 at the Sequoia; Oct. 12 at the Rafael), Swiss filmmaker Ruedi Gerber explores the life and works of the legendary Mill Valley dancer-choreographer, blending together interviews and archival footage that at times is visually astounding: writhing dancers silhouetted on the Golden Gate bridge; a slow, single-file parade up the side of a mountain; dozens of brightly garbed senior citizens dancing in their rocking

chairs. Halprin, now 89, is a co-pioneer of the experimental aesthetic approach known as postmodern dance, based on the view that all movement is dance, and that all humans are by their nature dancers. The film includes footage of Halprin rehearsing on her famously enormous backyard deck, designed to serve as a dance floor, and numerous interviews with those whom she has inspired over her long and boundary-bending career. Another inspirational name in the Bay Area is that of an institution, not a single human being: the San Francisco Mime Troupe, the radical, outrageous, progressive theater troupe known for its tuneful, politically spot-on musical satires. In 1985, filmmakers Glenn Silber and Claudia Vianello produced a memorable documentary about the Mime Troupe. Titled Troupers (Oct. 16 at 142 Throckmorton), the film followed the group during one particularly powerful road trip with the prolabor musical Steeltown. To celebrate the Mime Troupeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 50th anniversary this year, the MVFF has included a one-night-only screening of the 23-yearold filmâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;with lots of added attractions. Troupers includes a panel discussion featuring former members Peter Coyote, Joan Holden, Wilma Bonet and others, plus a special musical-comedy concert featuring composer and lyricist Bruce Barthol, of the original Country Joe and the Fish. Other notable local documentaries at this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s festival include the 27-minute short Hidden Bounty of Marin: Farm Families in Transition (Oct.11 at the Sequoia; Oct. 13 at the Rafael) focused on the 200-plus family farms that stand at the forefront of an agricultural revolution, making prosustainability choices that could have a profound impact on the future of everyday food. The film runs with the movie Homegrown, about a small thriving farm in the gangland heart of urban Pasadena. Though devoid of any overt Bay Area connections, Peter Rodgerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Oh My God (Oct. 17 at the Rafael; Oct. 18 at the Sequoia) looks as if it could be big. Rodger, disturbed by the hate-fueled rhetoric of prominent religious spokespersons, ventured into the world, camera in tow, asking all he encountered, â&#x20AC;&#x153;What is God?â&#x20AC;? The resulting three-year journey, covering 23 countries, brought Rodger into encounters with tribal Aborigines, Masai dancers, Tibetan monks and more, all eager to offer their answer to the Big Question. Zombie Girl: The Movie (Oct. 10 at 142 Throckmorton; Oct. 16 at the Rafael) by Aaron Marshall, Justin Johnson and Erik Mauck, follows another kind of quest, as 12year-old would-be filmmaker Emily Hagins struggles to film her own feature-length zombie movie, an improbable task that, in this wildly inspiring documentary, ends up prompting the help of this charmingly blood-obsessed pre-teenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s family and friends, and ultimately the entire filmmaking community of Austin, Texas. Smith Rafael Film Center, 1118 Fourth St., San Rafael. CineArts@Sequoia, 25 Throckmorton Ave., Mill Valley. 142 Throckmorton, 142 Throckmorton Ave., Mill Valley.

Red Dirt Girl

I thought that Billy Joe Shaver had finally settled down. Here was a man whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d cut off two fingers in a lumber mill accident, had lost his son to a heroin overdose, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d had a heart attackâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d think someone was trying to tell him to let his old, rowdy ways fall away. But thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a relentless spirit inside of Shaver; the same spirit that led him to define the â&#x20AC;&#x153;outlaw countryâ&#x20AC;? movement by penning songs for Waylon Jennings and Johnny Cash. The same spirit that led him to write the incredible album Honky Tonk Heroes. The same spirit, unfortunately, that led him into a 2007 dispute outside Papa Joeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Texas Saloon in Lorena, Tex., which ended by shooting a man in the face. Both lived to tell the taleâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;one in court, and Billy Joe Shaver, outlaw extraordinaire, on Friday, Oct. 2, at the Rancho Nicasio. Town Square, Nicasio. 8:30pm. $25. 415.662.2219.

If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re simply too car-challenged, energydeprived or claustrophobic to attend the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival in Golden Gate Park this weekend, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s at least the comfort of knowing that star headliner Emmylou Harris always visits Santa Rosa as part of her annual West Coast jaunt. Harrisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; recent foray into songwriting has served the always-an-interpreter-never-a-songwriter well, and possessed of silken hair and a voice from the heavens, Harris at age 62 still has the power to render breathless even the most callous listeners. Hope for â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Pearlâ&#x20AC;? when she plays with Buddy Miller on Sunday, Oct. 6, at the Wells Fargo Center. 50 Mark West Springs Road, Santa Rosa. 8pm. $30â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$70. 707.546.3600.

As the oral secretion, saliva tends to stay in our mouths. As the hard-rock band, Saliva has been in spots for World Wrestling Entertainment, the movie The Fast & the Furious, the theme to Nascar 2005: The Chase for the Cup, commercials for Dog the Bounty Hunter, the Japanese manga episode Dragon Ball Z: Bardockâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;The Father of Goku, as the highlight video soundtrack for the Boston Bruins and the Toronto Blue Jays, the video games BMX XXX, Project Gotham Racing, Test Drive Overdrive, UFC 2009 Undisputed, MX 2002 featuring Ricky Carmichael, and occasionally, on the Billboard charts. Sometimes, they even play concerts, and if they havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t infiltrated your personal space quite enough just yet, Saliva appear live on Tuesday, Oct. 6, at the Last Day Saloon. 120 Fifth St., Santa Rosa. 8:30pm. $18â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$20. 707.545.2343.

Crawfish Pie Every year, the Maison Dupuy Hotel on Toulouse and Burgundy streets in New Orleans hosts the French Quarter Wine Festival, in which residents of New Orleans celebrate wines from throughout the Napa Valley. Little do they know that across the country, residents of the Napa Valley get together annually to celebrate the food and music of New Orleans. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the Wine County Cajun Food & Music Festival, and it takes over downtown Napa with music by Gator Beat, the Zydeco Flames, Henry Clement, Chief Takawaka & Gumbo Band, the Fred Pepper Dixieland Trio and more. Gumbo, jambalaya and other Louisiana staples will be washed down with beer, beer and more beer, and yesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll even be someone throwing beads from the parade f loat on Saturday, Oct. 3, in downtown Napa. First & Main, Napa. 1â&#x20AC;&#x201C;6pm. Free. 707.257.0322.

The Shanghai Quartet kick off Russian River Chamber Musicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new season e sigh these wordsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;â&#x20AC;&#x153;the economyâ&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x201D; in a descending tone that is tinged with despair, heavy on the resigned lips. They so much contain the answer to the questions about why things have changed that Gary McLaughlin is weary of bespeaking their disappointment. After five years of presenting free classical concerts, McLaughlinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Russian River Chamber Music will begin charging admission this season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;No one needs to explain it,â&#x20AC;? he says resignedly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everybody knows why.â&#x20AC;? The economy. When it was good, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what allowed RRCM to offer free classical performances both traditional and cutting-edge. Those with nothing to do on a Saturday night, for example, could drive to Healdsburg, plop into a front-row seat at the Raven Theater, and witness a world-class performance by a New York string quartet experimenting with alternate bowing and tape loops, all for the price of gas and whatever could be spared for the donation jar. Those days may be over, but McLaughlin is certain that Russian River Chamber Music has ample fans who were originally attracted to the series for free and who can keep coming with a modest admission fee. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going back to the prices we charged ďŹ ve years ago,â&#x20AC;? McLaughlin notes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Students are still half price, and $20 is as low or lower than anything in the county.â&#x20AC;? This seasonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s international theme is underscored by the Shanghai Quartet, who open the season this weekend in Healdsburg. Featured in the Woody Allen ďŹ lm Melinda and Melinda, the group includes cellist Nicholas Tzavaras, whose family was the subject of the ďŹ lm Music of the Heart with Meryl Streep. Known for juxtaposing Eastern and Western sounds, the Shanghai Quartet are at home both with the Spanish composer Joaquin Turina, whose work is included in the upcoming program, and Beethoven, whose complete string quartets theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve recorded for a November release on the Camerata label. Though Shanghai Quartet violinist Yi-Wen Jiang is an avid wine collector, McLaughlin stresses that his concerts arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t for the â&#x20AC;&#x153;wine country weekender.â&#x20AC;? The economy is what it is, but heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still dedicated to presenting serious classical music in a casual setting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;More quartets are performing in bars, in New York and elsewhere,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Playing with bikers standing around, in full leather, listening to Brahms. With tears in their eyes.â&#x20AC;? The Shanghai Quartet performs on Friday, Oct. 2, at the Healdsburg Community Church (1100 University St., Healdsburg; 7:30pm; $10â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$20; 707.524.8700) and Saturday, Oct. 3, at Dance Palace (Fifth and B Streets, Point Reyes Station; 8pm; $30-$32; 415.663.1075).

Dave Alvin revamps, renews and pays honor few months after his best friend and Guilty Men bandmate Chris Gaffney died in 2008, Dave Alvin was asked to play San Franciscoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hardly Strictly Bluegrass festival. He couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t bring himself to make it a Guilty Men gig so soon after Gaffneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s death, so he recruited a few of his favorite female players: Cindy Cashdollar (steel/ Dobro), Nina Gerber (electric guitar), Christy McWilson (vocals), Sarah Brown (bass), Lisa Pankratz (drums), and fiddlers/harmony vocalists Laurie Lewis and Amy Farris. Dave Alvin and the Guilty Women made their debut at that show. They hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even rehearsed beforehand, but within weeks, they had recorded Dave Alvin and the Guilty Women, released in May. The last song on the album is â&#x20AC;&#x153;Que Sera Sera,â&#x20AC;? a tune Alvin has done as an encore for years, often with Gaffney at his side. As he prepared to hit the road as the only guy in a band full of women, Alvinâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;whose musical history includes co-founding the seminal roots-rock band the Blasters with his brother, Phil, followed by the cowpunk X offshoot the Knitters, in addition to a proliďŹ c solo careerâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;sat down to brieďŹ&#x201A;y discuss the vagaries of fame. Bohemian: Could there have been a more perfect song to end the recent Gaffney tribute CD with than â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Guitars of My Dead Friendsâ&#x20AC;?? Dave Alvin: I wrestled with the thought of not putting that on and leaving [the album] Chris-free, but it was perfect. The song just summed it all up. In a way, it was Chrisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; way of putting his passing into perspective. Boho: So, are the Guilty Women going to be around for a while? DA: Well, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see if they can stand me. This wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be luxurious touring. But everybody in the bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kind of a road dog. Boho: Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going on what sounds like a great â&#x20AC;&#x153;Roots on the Railsâ&#x20AC;? trip with the Flatlanders this fall. DA: Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m pretty shy, so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not normally my idea of a great time. My idea of a great time is hiding. Boho: You never struck me as being a shy guy. DA: Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a little-known fact. With the right amount of beer, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a different guy. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve met and worked with some famous people, and sometimes it just goes easy and other times I can be a total gush head. Boho: But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s different coming from a musician. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re at least speaking the same language at a level above gushing fan. DA: Inside, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see myself as that. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m still a goofball from Downey. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve gone out of my way not to meet people that I am a fan of. Literally, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been across the room, which is kind of weird. Just instantly, whatever Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve accomplished or done just disappears and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a 14-yearold kid again. To be honest, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s that way with Cindy and a lot of the gals in the band. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why we all get along. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m intimidated by them. There are moments onstage that are pretty stunning. Dave Alvin and the Guilty Women perform on Friday, Oct. 2, at the Mystic Theater. Eliza Gilkyson opens. 23 Petaluma Blvd. N., Petaluma. 8pm. $25. 707.765.2121. Lynne Margolis

For Student Scholarships at SRJC!

For six decades more than $76 million from the Frank P. Doyle Trust provided scholarships to over 120,000 Santa Rosa Junior College students. With the temporary loss of the Doyle Scholarship in 2008, many students who deserve awards will not receive scholarships. Until the Doyle Scholarship is restored, the help of the Sonoma County community is badly needed. Join with members of our community to create SRJC scholarships. Mail your check to: SRJC Foundation 1501 Mendocino Avenue Santa Rosa, CA 95401 (707) 527-4348

SCM presents more of the Wendtsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; great maps enry Wendtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s obsession began, as so many lifelong fascinations do, entirely by accident. In 1963, Wendt was a young pharmaceutical executive working briefly in Japan. Curious to better understand Tokyo, he wandered the city, eventually making his way to that part of town where antique booksellers are clustered. There, for just eight U.S. dollars, he found an ancient map depicting the Dutch East Indies as it was understood in the 1700s. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I went back to my hotel room,â&#x20AC;? Wendt remembers, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and laid the map out on the floor. I got down on my hands and knees and looked at every detail. I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe that anyone could buy a 300-year-old map for $8â&#x20AC;&#x201D;that it had all of this history to it. I started to prowl around to see what I could do.â&#x20AC;? As Wendt has ably proven, eventually becoming the chairman and CEO of SmithKline Beckman, he can do quite a lot. But heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have none of that. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was,â&#x20AC;? he says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;a treasure dropped out of the sky.â&#x20AC;? In 2004, North Bay museum-goers had a chance to see part of what Wendt and his wife, Holly, have collected since that first moment of kismet. Titled â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mapping the Pacific Coast,â&#x20AC;? that initial cartographic exhibit at the Sonoma County Museum detailed the often fanciful imaginings man had when encountering the New World. The second installment, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Envisioning the World: The First Printed Maps 1472â&#x20AC;&#x201C;1700â&#x20AC;? opens to the public at the SCM on Oct. 2 and focuses particularly on what happened to map-making and our understanding of our world with the advent of the printing pressâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;like commercialization. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They plagiarized one another,â&#x20AC;? Wendt declares with a laugh. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a commercial enterprise, if you could scoop the competition and come out with a map of the globe that showed features not seen before, then you could sell a lot of maps and raise your prices.â&#x20AC;? Paired with a lavish catalogue, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Envisioning the Worldâ&#x20AC;? particularly emphasizes manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s centralist point of view as dictated by the church and even the fashions of the day. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is an intellectual history, the gradual unfolding and understanding of the planet Earth and its relation to the sun, the nearby planets, the cosmos,â&#x20AC;? Wendt explains. Wendt amuses himself by mapping â&#x20AC;&#x153;tricky entrancesâ&#x20AC;? along the Pacific Northwest coastline, so he understands what early cartographers were up against when trying to understand the enormity of Africa or North America. What fascinates him most, however, are the reasons behind the construction of certain maps. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every map has a story,â&#x20AC;? he says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and a sequence of maps is a grand story.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Envisioning the Worldâ&#x20AC;? opens to the public at the Sonoma County Museum on Friday, Oct. 2, from 5pm to 7pm, and shows through Jan. 17. 425 Seventh St., Santa Rosa. 707.579.1500.

And the best thing about the just-opened production at Petalumaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cinnabar Theater is the obvious relish with which the cast lets Overmyerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s text fall, bounce, rocket and ricochet from their tongues. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The bane of my many travels in the tropics is a bland, mucilaginous paste called manioc,â&#x20AC;? pronounces Mary (Jessica Powell), â&#x20AC;&#x153;made from the forlorn and despicable cassava, a tuber of dubious provenance.â&#x20AC;? Overmyer, clearly, is possessed of a steadfast affection for rhyme and alliteration. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whenever I must palaver with pasha or poobah, I don this tonsorial getup,â&#x20AC;? confesses Fanny (Laura Jorgenson). Remarks the trouser-loving Alexandra, â&#x20AC;&#x153;In Lhasa, on the bonewhite hill of the Potala, before the lunar congregation of Buddhist alchemists, I saw the Dalai Lama himself transmute great buckets of gold coins. Into yak butter.â&#x20AC;? Even the snowball-chucking yeti played by Tim Kniffin, attacking an octet of rotating roles, is given, by Overmyer, a hilariously â&#x20AC;&#x153;language-yâ&#x20AC;? howl to hurl. Rich in verbal pyrotechnics, the play is unfortunately anemic in the area of plot or story, presenting a series of random oddities as the three women set out in 1888 and find themselves moving forward, Twilight Zoneâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;like, toward 1955. The direction by Beth Craven (whose sense of pace was so perfect early this year in The Scene, still one of my favorite productions of 2009) slips up here, allowing the pace to plod along, as if through mud. Other choices, as in a series of perplexingly dim and unclear rear projections stating chapter headings of each new scene, only knock the production further into the mire. While the giddy and well-honed performances, and all that smoldering wordsmithery, are more than reason enough to see On the Verge, one is unlike to arrive at the expeditionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s climax without wishing thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d been a little more there there. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;On the Vergeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; runs Thursdayâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Sunday through Oct. 11 at the Cinnabar Theater. Thursdayâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Saturday at 8pm; Sunday at 2pm. 3333 Petaluma Blvd. N., Petaluma. $20â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$28. 707.763.8920. David Templeton
