Thanks for reporting the stories about the appalling SPOT tagging project by Dr. Michael Domeier (Nov. 4 and 11). This is insane! I cannot believe the powers that be approved this project. It makes me physically ill thinking about dragging a hooked, 4,000-pound great white shark into a boat for a research project. Historically, researchers have been tagging sharks from boats with hand taggers while sharks remain in their natural habitat. This seems reasonable, but not the SPOT project. Shame on Dr. Domeier and everyone involved in hooking our great whites, including the government. This is reprehensible, and must be ended before they kill one of our beauties. If this shark fishing continues, a death is inevitable.

I was appalled by the prejudice and bigotry implied in the article â&#x20AC;&#x153;Street Talkingâ&#x20AC;? (Nov. 11) about the day laborers who come to Graton looking for work. My husband and I hired four men â&#x20AC;&#x153;loiteringâ&#x20AC;? on the streets of Graton to help us on our land four years ago. I feel so indebted to these men who were shy and unsure of themselves and their precarious place in our society. Being around them taught me humility, patience and compassionâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;something the snobby residents and business owners of Graton obviously need to learn. Three of the men had to return to Oaxaca. The one man who stayed here still helps us when we need it, is the hardest worker I have ever met and has more integrity than anyone I have ever known. When we treat him with concern and compassion, he is reticent and seems to be embarrassed by it. The article goes on to say that Graton is becoming a green community. In order to become green, an annoying clichĂŠ at best, one must first start with compassion. When I have eaten in the restaurants in Graton or shopped in the various

We are proud that our reportage in part prompted a series of articles on LATimes.com as well as an ABC report. What we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know was that actor Paul Walker was onboard Domeierâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s boat to add an aura of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;professionalismâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; to the proceedings for the cameras!

businesses, I detect a palpable elitism. So if I do find myself in Graton, I go out of my way to say, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Buenos diasâ&#x20AC;? to the â&#x20AC;&#x153;men loitering on street cornersâ&#x20AC;? so that maybe, when they go home at night, they wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think that every white person is insensitive, egotistical and shallow, and that the world exists only for them.

2>==8=62>=½B20;;B I found out today that PCS Telcom phone company charges inmates at the Santa Rosa Main Adult Detention Facility $2.65 to place a local call and 8 cents a minute after that. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean to criticize our judicial system, but it is just possible that some people there are innocents waiting for the wheels of justice to turn who are already poor and unable to pay bail. Why doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t PCS Telcom provide better phone service for the unfortunates who are incarcerated there? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like kicking someone when they are down, and lining the greedy corporate pockets while they do it. At least a local call should cost no more than it would from any pay phone. Perhaps I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the whole story here, but this seems like an injustice perpetrated against the downtrodden by a big corporation to me.

The photo on the bottom of the page was taken by John Youngblood, and was included on the website of the Hot Frittatas (Criticâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Choice image, Music section, Nov. 11). You mentioned the Hot Frittatasâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; CD release party at the French Garden Restaurant, but you failed to acknowledge the photographer, who is a personal friend of the band, and also a very accomplished professional in Sonoma County. I was also a little puzzled why you chose the caption â&#x20AC;&#x153;No Te Enganes Corazon,â&#x20AC;? which is Spanish for â&#x20AC;&#x153;Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t disturb my heart,â&#x20AC;? the name of a Brazilian tango which is included on the new CD. There is no explanation about that; even for those who speak Spanish, that caption doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make a whole lot of sense. But thanks for mentioning the new CD. We appreciate the publicity, and we hope we get a big turnout.

Russian River Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence profane charityâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;honorably By Michael Shapiro

ree shit, free shit, free shit!â&#x20AC;? chants the crowd of 170 bingo players as they bang their fists and dauber pens on the tables at Guernevilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Odd Fellows Hall. At the front of the hall, eight members of the Russian River order of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, all made up and dressed to the nines, hurl donated goodies (a Little Princess Barbie doll, a book about bad cats, a talking Mr. T placard) to raffle winners in the audience. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If it offends you,â&#x20AC;? says Bingo â&#x20AC;&#x153;co-chairnunâ&#x20AC;? Sister Nova Nilla, â&#x20AC;&#x153;tough shit.â&#x20AC;? Sister Saviour Applause and Sister Coppah Feel are â&#x20AC;&#x153;pulling ballsâ&#x20AC;? from a bingo hopper. Sister Nova Nilla warns, â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you call â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;bingoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have it, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll bring you up

to the front, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll make you take off your clothes and beat you with this paddle. So donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t call bingo, bitch.â&#x20AC;? Moments later a woman calls â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bingo!â&#x20AC;? Two nuns rush to checkâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;false alarm. Out comes the paddle. A pair of â&#x20AC;&#x153;nunsâ&#x20AC;? take their turns spanking the woman. Sister Dawna Matrix explains that to win the next game, a square of numbers around the free space, you need to call â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have a little mouthâ&#x20AC;? instead of the traditional â&#x20AC;&#x153;bingo.â&#x20AC;? After a few numbers are called, a woman jumps up and shouts, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have a big mouth!â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;What, bitch?â&#x20AC;? Quickly realizing her error, the winner exclaims, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have a little mouth . . . and big tits!â&#x20AC;? As the crowd roars, the approving nuns nod, put away their spanking paddle, totter

Ft. Hood massacre reveals the madness of war By Shepherd Bliss

8

am heartbroken. It has been over a week now, and I still cannot shake the Ft. Hood tragedy, which reaches deeply into this military veteranâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s soul and feels like a wound to my body. I am haunted with memories and images from long ago. I come from a long, Southern military line. We gave our family name to Ft. Bliss, Texas, and I was raised partly on a military base in San Antonio, close to Ft. Hood. The murders struck home. The mass shooting first came to my attention from a phone call that night from another military family member. Then I got an email from a buddy in our Veterans Writing Group with links to articles about it. We spoke about the incident in two of my Sonoma State University classes the following week. A psychotherapist who works with soldiers on a contract with the Department of Defense, who had been invited to Ft. Hood to work for a while, came with her insiderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s report. A student informed me that he received a call from his best friend from Ft. Hood as the shooting was happening in the background. I still wake in the middle of the night and hear those shots. It is a familiar, unwelcome sound. My own post-traumatic stress from being raised military and then serving in the Army during the American wars in Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos has been triggered. I did not see combat or kill anyone, but I did lose some buddies; I feel those losses once again as I hear about the mass shooting at Ft. Hood. The deepest reflection about Ft. Hood that I have read is from Southern California poet and writer Deena Metzger. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everything that is terrible about war, and particularly our contemporary wars and the two wars against Iraq and Afghanistan, is articulated in this event,â&#x20AC;? she wrote. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Such madness is what war is, and we are responsible. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Maj. [Nidal] Hasan is in our lives,â&#x20AC;? Metzger continues. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have to wrestle with what drove him to such horrific action.â&#x20AC;? It is too easy to just blame Maj. Hasan. She charges: â&#x20AC;&#x153;I drove him mad. He said it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t his war; I said it has to be your war.â&#x20AC;? Metzger speaks for America, even though many will deny the truth that she utters. But I have indeed been wrestling with what happened and our collective responsibility as taxpayers for it.

What is the mad and maddening context from which the major apparently acted? Our capacity and willingness to understand why he engaged in such destructive behavior could help us to prevent further outbursts. Or we could just continue on Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s current self-destructive path and send another 40,000 troops to Afghanistan to kill people and return with post-traumatic stress to continue the killing here. When will we wake up to the multiple and complex consequences of war-making? They do not end when the war is officially declared over. Ask any vet who lost part of his or her body or soul. Veterans Day is now over; the parades are finished. Most Americans outside military families are likely to soon forget what happened at Ft. Hood and what it says about the hundreds of thousands of men and women trained to kill who are and will be returning home. Few combat vets will forget, even if they do not speak about what happened. Even those not deployed to war zones may experience what is being called â&#x20AC;&#x153;pre-traumatic stress.â&#x20AC;? Others experience the â&#x20AC;&#x153;secondary traumaâ&#x20AC;? of hearing the horror stories of soldiers. As the war continues, we all become war casualties, some more damaged than others. There are becoming fewer places to hide from the horror that the United States continues to visit on people far away and increasingly on our own population. Americans are famous for taking action; what we would benefit most from now is reflection. Perhaps the Ft. Hood mess can contribute to an awakening, rather than to another shoot-â&#x20AC;&#x2122;em-up. Perhaps some good can come from the Ft. Hood horror, depending on how Americans respond. Anything positive that we can harvest from this terrible deed will depend on our capacity to feel and think deeply about it, and submit ourselves to the deep grief that is appropriate.

As the war continues, we all become war casualties, some more damaged than others.

as much fun in line as they do during the bingo game itself. Just before 7pm, the sisters, dressed in their habits, feather boas and fishnet stockings, run into the hall to the hoots, thunderous applause and stamping feet of the crowd, with bass-y music thumping on the sound system. The theme this night is â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dungeons and Drag-nunsâ&#x20AC;? and Sister Nova warns, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mess with us or weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll throw you in the dungeon!â&#x20AC;?

orth Bay fish are getting stepped on. In our watersheds, the salmon were historically so plentiful that legend tells of foot travelers crossing streams on the backs of these gnarly spawners, muscular as boulders. Whether or not these beauties actually kept anyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s feet dry, their dwindling descendants in the wine country can barely keep themselves wet, thanks to unregulated, for-profit stream diversions. Our native salmonids, in particular the coho and steelhead swimming between river and sea, are in rapid decline. Fish advocates are urging the state to regulate all the small but numerous water diversions made by those who profit at the expense of fish: the bad-boy players in wine-grape agriculture. Guardians of the surviving salmon species are looking to the guardians of the state waterways to come up with a management plan that will allow for protecting wine crops without driving salmon to extinction. The issues will be addressed Wednesday, Nov. 18, as the State Water Resources Control Board (SWRCB) convenes its Russian River frost-protection workshop. Wine grapes themselves are not big drinkers. In fact, the fruit used in wine production is improved by underwatering rather than overwatering vines. Water use becomes an eco-drain when stream levels are low during a frost and growers pump tributary water to spray vines, protecting the crop from frost damage. The crop is saved at the expense of the fish, which are deprived of the waterâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;both in quality and quantityâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; needed for their basic life processes. Not all wine-grape farmers divert stream water for frost protection in the Russian River Basin. In fact, alternatives are practiced in Mendocino and Sonoma counties by such growers as Fetzer, Beckstoffer, Dolan, Sawyer and La Ribera, among others. These winegrowers use storage ponds from which to draw when the frost threatens the vines. Wine-grape growers in Napa County provide a model for self-regulation with a program that requires farmers to take protective measures before diversions or other â&#x20AC;&#x153;unreasonableâ&#x20AC;? actions are taken to protect crops. In Napa as well as Sonoma and Mendocino counties, growers have shown

leadership by investing in ponds and other storage alternatives to avoid taking water needed by the fish. However, the less scrupulous simply pump water out of tributaries as they wish. Too many of these diversions kill fish, including such species near the crashing point as coho salmon. Researchers found that when â&#x20AC;&#x153;multiple, simultaneous small diversionsâ&#x20AC;? from tributaries reduced stream flow levels, there was a corresponding drop in water temperatures. These temperature fluctuations kill fish, even if lowered water flows do not. Such kills can be avoided. The problem is that the state is not adequately managing the public waterways. Big water projects appear on the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s regulatory radar, but who notices when a wine-grape farmer sticks a pump in a well right next to a creek? Most tributary water runs underground and gets pumped away from fish habitat. (California is one of the few states that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t regulate groundwaterâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;yet.) No one is counting how many people are taking stream water, when theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re taking it or how much they are taking. Fish advocates say they should be counted, claiming there is enough water for both fish and wine grapes to thrive, if the SWRCB would only tighten its management. Fish advocates salute efforts made by the Russian River Flood Control District, the Sonoma County Farm Bureau and participants in the Fish Friendly Farming program for efforts to protect fish. But the bad-boy growers will not do the right thing if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only voluntary. Defenders of salmon want emergency regulations for 2010, followed by permanent regulations in concert with a management plan that makes sense and keeps the salmon alive. They also want eco-criminals to be held accountable for stealing from fish and simultaneously taking unfair market advantage over growers who do the right thing. In a commentary submitted to the SWRCB on behalf of the Sierra Clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Redwood Chapter, Institute for Fisheries Resources biologist Patrick Higgins wrote that the effects of tributary diversions in the Russian River watershed are grave. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pacific salmon species will not thrive,â&#x20AC;? Higgins wrote, â&#x20AC;&#x153;or even survive into the future without profound change in California water policy and management.â&#x20AC;?

EXbRTaPP]SE^hTdaXb\ Watching butchers cut up whole animals is the newest live entertainment. Could this fresh group of hipster foodies save tradition? Story and photos by Gabe Meline

tâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s another Monday night south of Market in San Francisco. As the jukebox blares Joy Division, the Bloodhound Bar is shoulder to shoulder with thirty-somethings sipping from Mason jars of bacon-infused whiskey cocktails. Beards, tattoos, bandanas and black T-shirts mingle. Suddenly, the back door flies open. Ryan Farr and Taylor Boetticher emerge, carrying giant goat and lamb carcasses high above their heads. The two butchers throw their skinned animals onto tables. Boetticher makes the first of hundreds of cuts into the lamb, while across the dimly lit watering hole, Farr pulls out a giant hacksaw and swiftly cuts through the goatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s neck. Some faces wince in shock. Most lean closer and click their iPhone cameras. This is a butcher party, a phenomenon gaining serious steam in New York and the Bay Area, often at bars like this one on Folsom Street. If the fawning atmosphere at the Bloodhound Bar is any indicator, the notion of butchers as

stars isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t merely media myth. Once, all a guy had to do was pick up an electric guitar, but now, as evidenced by the front-row gathering of girls at Bloodhound, a meat cleaverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just as likely to do the trick. Not that these butchers need girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;both Boetticher and Farr are happily marriedâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and not that butchery is anything new. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new, however, is also whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s old: the idea that meat should be locally sourced and prepared instead of shipped from factory-farm centers in the Midwest. Combined with a general back-to-basics movement resurrecting simple daily acts, the arcane idea of the neighborhood butcher who can break down a whole animal, carcass to plate, is a crucial role for the future of food. Those lucky enough to get to the front row at the Bloodhound Bar ask questions. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s that cut called? How much does a whole lamb cost? Did you learn to butcher by trial and error? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yeah,â&#x20AC;? Farr replies, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not really too much error, â&#x20AC;&#x2122;cause everythingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s edible.â&#x20AC;? He slices meat off the ribs with a magicianâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s flair, throws two

kidneys into a roll and ties it off, sending it to the wood-fired grill out in the alley next to a creaking rotisserie motor turning a giant pig.

Crucified Carcasses Butcher parties come in all forms. The next week, six butchers appeared at Primal, a food and wine event â&#x20AC;&#x153;celebrating fire cooking, meat and the art of butchering.â&#x20AC;? Though held outside during a balmy fall afternoon at a scenic winery in St. Helena, the atmosphere was far more macho than at the Bloodhound Bar. A tall wooden gallows had been erected, full carcasses swinging from it by chained hooks. Two skinned goatsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; heads at the edge of the butchersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; table greeted visitors, one with its tongue pulled ghoulishly through its teeth. While the butchersâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;including a woman surprisingly clad in tight leopard-print pants, pointed shoes and a short topâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;carved up meat, runners delivered trays of flesh through the crowds to the open wood fire area, itself marked with a grinning pigâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s head and a &THE BOHEMIAN

spread-eagled, crucified goat corpse. A gruff, commanding man in tattoos, rubber boots, orange camouflage cap and USDA T-shirt tended to the enormous flame. This was Chris Cosentino, star of Iron Chef America and chef at San Franciscoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Incanto, who was recently seen serving cow testicles to Anthony Bourdain on the San Francisco episode of No Reservations. Clustered crowds for the sample tables were six deep and moving like molasses. Cosentino rushed over a plate of meat parts and barked orders to a hapless young female server. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll give you one demo, and then weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re gonna go! Câ&#x20AC;&#x2122;mon, get some forks out here so people can just grab and go!â&#x20AC;? he shouted, as if the lack of samples was her fault. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re here to eat, not to stand around!â&#x20AC;? As she sliced the chunks, a woman asked just what it was on the tray. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is beef heart,â&#x20AC;? the server replied. Hungry but aghast, the woman turned away. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oh, no,â&#x20AC;? she muttered, swimming her way back through the crowd. â&#x20AC;&#x153;No.â&#x20AC;? If there was any lingering doubt about butchery as voyeurism, Primal erased it completely. This was meat consumption in all its chest-beating glory, relishing the pleasures of the flesh. Most attendees seemed to be from the media, carrying cameras or digital recorders and talking about their wine blogs. Still others, like the two guys who showed up wearing Viking helmets, were harder to pigeonhole. They could have just been on the prowl, like the middle-aged man who suggested to two teenage girls that â&#x20AC;&#x153;thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nothinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; better than seeinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; two beautiful ladies eatinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; chicken.â&#x20AC;? With tickets ranging from $65 to $100 and all of those crucified carcasses warming in the afternoon air like morbid floral displays, Primal was a fairly disheartening spectacle, prompting the question: Are butcher parties just a precious foodie fad, or is there more to the trend?

Meat as Metaphor Sasha Wizansky started Meatpaper magazine in 2007, not as a political act but as a cultural lens through which meat, a naturally provocative subject, can provide limitless metaphor on how we live. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Meat is the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best conversation starter,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everybody has something to say about it. People have passionate reactions, either positive or negative, and everybody has meat stories to tell.â&#x20AC;? Meatpaper has featured a wearable suit made of steak on its cover and printed stories on everything from visiting a slaughterhouse to marinating and cooking a sweat sock. What it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do is moralize. Instead, it chronicles, in an era-specific fashion, the present consciousness of meatâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;or, as its first issue famously coined, the â&#x20AC;&#x153;fleischgeist.â&#x20AC;? Wizansky, 36, has both hosted Meatpaper public butchery parties and judged at others, and sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seen both sides of the spectrum, from artful butchery to testosterone-fueled bravado. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Butchery has always been a

male profession,â&#x20AC;? she says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also a movement growing among women.â&#x20AC;? She cites Avedanoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Meats in San Francisco, which was opened by three women in 2007, and a recent SFMOMA event with a team of female butchers carving a spit-roasted 800pound steer in the museumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s atrium. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There was something very beautiful,â&#x20AC;? she says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;about the way eight female butchers carved the animal down to its bones.â&#x20AC;? One thing is constant, Wizansky says. The f leischgeist is causing people to think about where their meat comes from and how it got to the table. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The new fascination with butchers is spreading really quickly,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exciting, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m really happy about it, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m wondering if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just a f lash in the pan or if it really does represent a move away from more industrial and cordoned-off meat production.â&#x20AC;?

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Meat is the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best conversation starter. Everybody has something to say about it.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Sasha Wizansky

Nose-to-Tail Talents Assembly-line factory farming has been consolidated for so long, says Marissa Guggiana, president of local Petaluma meat processing plant Sonoma Direct, that the skill set of the old-fashioned neighborhood butcher is truly a lost art. For the growing farm-to-table movement, that makes the local butcher a key middleman. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one thing to buy tomatoes. You just shake the dirt off andâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;voilĂ ,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But when it comes to meat, there has to be someone else there to get the meat onto the table. So butchers are really important, and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a new awakening of understanding that.â&#x20AC;? Guggiana, 31, a third-generation Sonoma County native, started Sonoma Direct four years ago as an alternative to huge factories in the Midwest. Her meat is bought, butchered and sold locally to markets and such restaurants as Scopa and Barndiva in Healdsburg, Tra Vigne in St. Helena, Peter Lowellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in Sebastopol, Chez Panisse in Berkeley and the Farmhouse Inn in Forestville, to name a few. Sonoma Direct doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t slaughter, but they do buy and pack locally grown animals from four different farmers in Petaluma, and they open a room in their plant to butchers and chefs who need a USDA-approved place to work.


BC0A40C6>0CB These cranial centerpieces from Primal stare right back.

Owing to Slow Food activism and eyeopening films like Food, Inc., awareness of factory farmingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s harmful effects has hit the mainstream hard in the last year. According to Danielle Nierenbergâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Happier Meals: Rethinking the Global Meat Industry, industrialized factory farming is responsible for 74 percent of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s poultry products, 50 percent of all pork and 43 percent of beef. When meat is eaten in the United States, it generally comes from one of nine enormous and chemically robust packing houses, the type that inspired Upton Sinclairâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s The Jungle and, as Guggiana points out, Henry Fordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s assembly line. Guggiana calls the butchery phenomenon a â&#x20AC;&#x153;perfect stormâ&#x20AC;? of sustainability, food awareness and an increasing DIY aesthetic seen in the rise of sewing, crafting, kinetic art and rudimentary repair. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just that none of us do anything, none of us make anything,â&#x20AC;? she explains. â&#x20AC;&#x153;None of us have that sort of integrity in our life. We buy everything, everything appears in our life readymadeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; even our entertainment. I really believe thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s soul-sapping. So when you get turned on to doing something thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s that simple, and seeing it from start to finish, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so satisfying. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Because of the assembly line,â&#x20AC;? Guggiana adds, â&#x20AC;&#x153;people have lost that knowing-thewhole-animal skill. Guys who work in grocery stores, they might know a little bit; theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll know how to cut steaks and everything, but theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re getting in whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s called â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;primal cuts,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; which are the shoulder, the loin, the belly. They might know what to do with it from there. They wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what to do with a carcass. I mean, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll find some old guys. Every couple stores, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll meet some guy whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I love to break down a carcass!â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Because thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what they

learned to do when they were starting out. No one does that now.â&#x20AC;?

Killing the Chicken Gwendolynn Gunheim had been a vegetarian most of her life until last month, when she bought a chicken, turned it upsidedown into a pylon cone hanging from her backyard tree, stuck a knife into its neck and watched it spasm into death. Gunheim, 25, and boyfriend Nick Haig-Arack, 28, then dunked, feathered and gutted the bird, engaging in the most basic rituals of meat eatingâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and, to modern eaters, one of the most taboo. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just felt like it was time,â&#x20AC;? Gunheim explains of her apostasy from vegetarianism, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but I only wanted to do it that way.â&#x20AC;? With the maxim that if one eats meat, one should also be able to look the animal in the eye and kill it oneself, Gunheim didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sign up for any slaughter classes or check any bustling online message boards. She simply opened her copy of The Encyclopedia of Country Living, turned to the chapter on poultry and went for it. Last week, it was Haig-Arackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s turn. The two drove out to Gleason Ranch, a sixth-generation farm outside of Bodega specializing in grass-fed lamb, beef, pork and poultry, and picked up a live chicken. Once home, they strung their pylon cone from the tree and positioned it over a galvanized bucket. Haig-Arack placed the bird on a stump, thanked it, chopped its neck with an axe and drained it in the cone. Three hours and plenty of garlic, lemon and butter later, Gunheim opened their Wedgwood oven and served dinner. This young couple arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t alone. In the wake of Novella Carpenterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s '%

illuminating book Farm City: The Education of an Urban Farmer, the idea of raising, slaughtering and eating your own animals has resurfaced with a vengeance. Or maybe itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just something in the air. Gunheim, whose great-grandparents once owned a chicken farm in Santa Rosa, had never heard the term â&#x20AC;&#x153;urban farming.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I guess I was aware that there was this back-to-the-land revival,â&#x20AC;? she says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but when it came down to it, I just did it.â&#x20AC;? Haig-Arack had thought the experience would turn him off from eating meat entirely, but instead, he declared a reverent appreciation for a food heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d taken for granted, despite the tedious post-kill process. Plucking feathers took longer than heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d thought. Harder still was cutting around the anus and removing the innards, especially since the intestines smelled terrible and air displacement caused the dead chickenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s larynx to make faint clucking sounds each time he inserted his fist.

Pounds of Pride Staring at a giant hanging quarter cow in the cooler at Sonoma Direct, Guggiana tries to describe the feeling. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s visceral,â&#x20AC;? she says, inches from thick, red flesh. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s captivating. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like when thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a TV on at a bar and you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t look away. It beautiful and scary, in a way. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a numbing that happens over time.â&#x20AC;? While her parents, aunt and great-uncle buzz around the office, Guggiana is inside the plant itself, a nondescript white building against a hillside where four butchers prepare sausage. One of them sticks out for his animated face, Dutch accent and age, which he is cagey about revealing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I been a butcher more than 40 years, but I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really work,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Never had a day that I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel like cutting meat. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great profession!â&#x20AC;? His name is Gerritt Van den Noord, and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worked here since before Sonoma Direct took over the plant. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a decidedly old-school butcher, one who bellows opera while carving and takes to heart the responsibility in preparing food for other peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dinner. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s too bad thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a lot of pride left in butchery,â&#x20AC;? he says, cranking the meat grinder. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of professions, really, but especially butchery.â&#x20AC;?

Backlash in a Good Way Over in Napa a few days later, Taylor Boetticher pulls a sizzling pork roll from the oven and resumes snapping beans into a bowl, too busy to sit down as he prepares lunch for the employees who are working hard in the cramped back room at his Fatted Calf Charcuterie. He definitely knows Van den Noord. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I love Gerritt, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great,â&#x20AC;? says the 33-year-old. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When he was learning how to do this, meat cutting was a really respectable, high-paying union job. Then most of the bigger companies wound up outsourcing it with cheap labor and not paying their people very well, and so a lot

20

of people like him either got out or were forced out. The fact that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still with it? That guy really knows his stuff.â&#x20AC;? When Van den Noord showed up at one of Boetticherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s butchery parties in San Francisco, Boetticher remembers being nervous, despite his 10 years of meat-cutting experience. Raised in Dallas, Texas, Boetticher went to culinary school at 19, where he met his future wife and Fatted Calf co-owner Toponia Miller. Ten years ago, after moving to the Bay Area and working a number of restaurants, he was hired to run the in-house charcuterie at Cafe Rouge in Berkeley, and, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just fell in love with it,â&#x20AC;? he says. When he and Miller extended their honeymoon in Italy to study in Tuscany with famed butcher Dario Cecchini, later spotlighted in Bill Bufordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Heat, their trajectory was set.

Guggiana calls the butchery phenomenon a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;perfect stormâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; of sustainability, food awareness and an increasing DIY aesthetic.

The Fatted Calf, which moved from San Franciscoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dogpatch neighborhood to Napa in 2008, is an old-style charcuterie, with a counter teeming with pork tenderloin, patĂŠ, sausage, duck confit, marinated game hen, fresh bacon and crĂŠpinette, a rabbit burger wrapped in caul fat from a membrane that surrounds the liver. The small shop primarily serves locals instead of tourists, because most of what it sells is designed to be taken home and cooked, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been increasingly successful since it opened. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of people are looking for more of a connection to what theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re eating and where itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s coming from,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not just for elite Bay Area foodies. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an important craft to maintain. Whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all-grain beer brewing or good coffee, cheese, breadâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;whatever. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a backlash, in a good way. It seems like the last 20 years of the 20th century just got so crazed with excess and more-more-more, I feel like people are starting to pay attention to whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important instead of getting ahead.â&#x20AC;? At the Bloodhound Bar, Boetticherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s butcher party with Farr had a decidedly post-moral feel. The question of the animalsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; deaths was either never raised or, as was the case in St. Helena, was overtly snubbed. (The Bloodhound animals came from

local farmsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Magruder Ranch, Marin Sun Farms, Robert Sinsky Vineyardsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and were slaughtered by Budâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Meats, in Penngrove.) Boetticher has killed animals before, and admits it â&#x20AC;&#x153;absolutelyâ&#x20AC;? feels weird. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Somethingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wrong with you if you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel anything,â&#x20AC;? he says, solemnly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a life.â&#x20AC;? Boetticher takes opinions about public butcher parties seriously, which sometimes allege a lack of respect for the animals when a fired-up audience turns the craft into a spectator sport. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I can see where people might be uncomfortable,â&#x20AC;? he says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but what are we gonna do? Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re gonna have one of these things, and cut and use every single part of the animalâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;which we doâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and tell people not to take pictures? Or tell people to act like theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in church or something? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a bar. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a party. And, no, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not glorifying anything. I certainly donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s crass. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gonna happen, it should be done as respectfully as possible, as peacefully as possible,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Once its purpose has been

carried outâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what farm animals are forâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;I think we have a responsibility to use every piece, and make sure that it gets cooked respectfully, and made deliciously.â&#x20AC;?

C

he celebrity butcher. The fleischgeist. The public dismemberment of animals. It starts small, like the worker at Fatted Calf who left the French Laundry to learn about meat; or the onlookers asking questions at the Bloodhound Bar; the young couples who rethink where their chicken comes from. Slowly, it builds into rampant interest in a lost craft with sold-out butchery classes, raised consciousness and a potential threat to consolidated factory farming. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure that there will always be Tysons and IBPs,â&#x20AC;? Boetticher says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll always be a market for the styro-packed, irradiated meat thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on sale cheap at Albertsons. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not really trying to change the world. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m just trying to offer an alternative to somebody looking for something better.â&#x20AC;?

68E4C70=:B 3>6>>3 he holiday season can be depressing enough without being broke, going hungry or feeling alone and isolated. Luckily for the less fortunate in the North Bayâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and for do-gooders with extra time on their handsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;an abundance of community support is once again uniting to provide gatherings complete with turkey noshing and Thanksgiving cheer.

T

The Redwood Gospel Mission of Santa Rosa extends beyond its shelter walls and hosts its annual Great Thanksgiving Banquet on Wednesday, Nov. 25, at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds, 1350 Bennett Valley Road, Santa Rosa, from 11am to 6pm. The event, which often exceeds 5,000 guests, includes face-painting for kids, free haircuts and free food boxes for hungry attendees. For those wishing to donate a turkey or to volunteer time and services, please contact the Redwood Gospel Missionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Support Center at 707.578.1830. Also in Sonoma County is the Sonoma Community Centerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s free organic turkey dinner, prepared by chef Gary Edwards and an entourage of volunteers. The annual elaborate meal, which is served at 3pm, also includes live music by the Earl Blue Quartet on Thursday, Nov. 26, in Andrewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hall at the Sonoma Community Center, 276 E. Napa St., Sonoma. Call 707.938.4626 for more information of donations or volunteer opportunities. St. Vincent de Paulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dinning Room in San Rafael, which is open for daily free meals to Marinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s homeless and working poor, provides a free Thanksgiving meal on Thursday, Nov. 26, from 11am to 1pm. 820 B St., San Rafael. Have time or money to donate? Call Vinnieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s at 415.545.3303. In Napa, where lack of sufďŹ cient refrigeration storage recently caused alarm at the food bank, the Salvation Army will be cooking up their annual Thanksgiving meal for nearly 300 people at 590 Franklin St., Napa. 11:30am to 2pm. And, yes, they would love more volunteers, as well. 707.226.8150.

Artist Ricky Watts creates onsite at the 2009 NORBAYs.

Calling All Conscious Citizens!

D

id you know that in one year alone Bohemian readers have contributed an estimated $28 million to charities and other organizations, $3 million each to educational institutions and political organizations and some $103 million in other cash gifts to area nonprofits? (The Media Audit 2008 Consumer Expenditure Report on the prior 12 months.) It proves that giving a little really does add up to a lot. When you consider how much you give and multiply that by how many people you know who are likely do the same, the numbers jump and the donations increase in overwhelming increments. This October, the Bohemian hosted both our annual Boho Awards and our North Bay Music Awards (NORBAYs) at Sebastopolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hopmonk Tavern. As part of this stellar evening, we hosted our own fundraising effort by inviting graffiti artist Ricky Watts to paint on canvas live at the NORBAYs. We sold raffle tickets for donation to both Face to Face and Food for Thought to those hoping to win the resulting painting. Forty percent of our audience gladly purchased a $5 ticket for a chance to win the artwork; we donated 100 percent of the money to these deserving nonprofits. Nonprofits, including the Association of Fundraising Professionals, a professional association which serves nonprofit fundraisers, agree that it is the â&#x20AC;&#x153;conscious citizensâ&#x20AC;? who are feeding the poor, clothing children, driving seniors and the ill to medical facilities, helping to find a cure and working to comfort those at hospices. Vicki Yarnal, CFRE president elect of the AFP Wine Country Chapter, says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are all living in this economy together, and are united through our energy and spirit. We need to be sure we are all taken care of.â&#x20AC;? While the economy continues to strengthen, the recent downturn has taught us all a valuable lesson about lifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s real treasures. This year, many of us will give less flashy gifts to one another, perhaps beginning a new tradition that will endure even when flush times return. Last year, I donated money to a local charity on behalf of my East Coast family members in lieu of spending a lot on shipping costs for gifts that they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need. I made sure that the charity I donated to adheres to my familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interests, and they were pleased by the thoughtfulness. Rather than just wrapping up gifts to send, I was truly smiling last year! Our donation helped a disabled person and made a difference. Think about what you can and want to do this season and throughout next year. And no matter how small, know that your donation will be appreciated and used. Share the love.

On Giving and the “Spirit of Philanthropy”

T

BE ASHAME T ’ N D DO

hose of us who live in the North Bay are very fortunate to benefit from the many services of the nonprofits that serve our community and exist only to make our community a better place to live, work and raise our families. We are a community rich in resources, and we are a community of people who care about those in need. Even in these challenging times the spirit of giving thrives. Together, our gifts, whether large or small, add up to make a big difference.

Award for its ongoing commitment to fostering the spirit of philanthropy.

This spirit of giving, or in a more formal sense, philanthropy, is something that is celebrated worldwide each year in November. Since 1986, local chapters of the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) have hosted events to celebrate National Philanthropy Day, and this past year more than 125 events were held in the United States alone.

%Outstanding Youth in Philanthropy

In November 2010, the AFP Wine Country Chapter, which represents more than 55 members who work on behalf of nonprofits across the North Bay, will again host an event to celebrate National Philanthropy Day. The Chapter is pleased to announce that the Community Foundation Sonoma County will be recognized with the “Spirit of Philanthropy”

For more information regarding the event, the awards and nomination process, and sponsorship opportunities, contact the AFP Wine Country Chapter at 707.922.5773 or by email at admin@afp-wcc.org .

Additionally, along with the special honorees nominated by local nonprofits, four new community awards will also be presented: %Outstanding Individual or Family Philanthropist %Outstanding Business Partner %Outstanding Civic Organization Partner

Everyone is invited to help recognize individuals, businesses, civic organizations and youth throughout the North Bay who have demonstrated an outstanding commitment to philanthropy through financial support and the encouragement and motivation of others.

Vicki Yarnal, CFRE President-Elect AFP Wine Country Chapter

A Donor Bill of Rights

P

hilanthropy is based on voluntary action for the common good. It is a tradition of giving and sharing that is primary to the quality of life. To assure that philanthropy merits the respect and trust of the general public, and that donors and prospective donors can have full confidence in the not-for-profit organizations and causes they are asked to support, we declare that all donors have these rights: I. To be informed of the organization’s mission and the way the organization intends to use donated resources, and of its capacity to use donations effectively for their intended purposes. II. To be informed of the identity of those serving on the organization’s governing board, and to expect the board to exercise prudent judgment in its stewardship responsibilities. III. To have access to the organization’s most recent financial statements. IV. To be assured their gifts will be used for the purposes for which they where given. V. To receive appropriate acknowledgement and recognition. VI. To be assured that information about their donations is handled with respect and with confidentiality to the extent provided by law. VII. To expect that all relationships with individuals representing organizations of interest to the donor will be professional in nature. VIII. To be informed whether those seeking donations are volunteers, employees of the organization or hired solicitors. IX. To have the opportunity for their names to be deleted from mailing lists that an organization may intend to share. X. To feel free to ask questions when making a donation and to receive prompt, truthful and forthright answers.

How to Help: • donate money

• host a distribution

• donate food

• donate a vehicle

• volunteer

• advocate

• organize a food drive

• contact lawmakers

The mission of REFB is to end hunger in our community.

Our mission: Founded in 1987, REFB is Sonoma County's largest hunger-relief organization in Sonoma County. We acquire food and distribute it through a network of charitable agencies and our own food assistance programs, and also provide food to Lake, Mendocino, Humboldt, and Del Norte Counties through smaller food banks. In addition, the REFB advocates for effective legislation that will provide long-term solutions to hunger in our community. Number of Sonoma County charitable organizations served: 146. Types of charities include emergency food pantries/closets, shelters and dining rooms, childcare centers/youth programs, group homes, and disaster relief agencies. Programs: The Agency Shopping Program provides food to 146 member charities that serve people in

need. REFB also operates 13 of its own programs throughout the county. Number of people served on a monthly basis: 70,000 No one is out of hunger's reach— seniors, children, and working families are all coming to food distributions seeking supplemental groceries to help them make it through the month. Amount of food distributed this year: 11.7 million pounds This is the equivalent of 9.1 million meals annually, or 25,000 meals every day. Volunteers: Over 5,000 individuals volunteer 70,000 hours by packing and sorting food, doing clerical tasks, driving trucks to pick up and deliver food, participating in special projects such as food drives and special events, and sharing their technologi-

cal expertise. These volunteers fill the equivalent of more than 33 full-time staff positions. Sources of Donated Food: 15% from local food companies, farmers, retailers, food drives, and 85% through regional collaborations and Feeding America national network of food banks. Efficiency: We are able to distribute nearly $4.00 (wholesale value) worth of food for every $1 we spend, making the REFB a cost effective investment in the community. Charity Navigator: America’s largest independent charity evaluator, gave REFB its highest rating—four stars— for the 6th year in a row, recognizing that 96.9% of REFB resources go directly towards feeding the hungry.

1;02:8BC74 =4F1>G oxed wine is back? Seems contrary to trend. The totable grape beverage of many a wine drinkerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s youth becomes the sophomore connoisseurâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy object of derision. But who could have guessed, for instance, that the Beatle-haired, trimmed-bearded look lampooned in the â&#x20AC;&#x2122;90s as â&#x20AC;&#x153;NPR dad liteâ&#x20AC;? would become the de rigueur coiffure of young men today?

B

Earlier this year, the Nielson Company reported that boxed wine sales jumped 31 percent in 2008, compared to 4.4 percent for wine overall. The generally accepted reason is lowered consumer expectations, not a rise in quality. Yet wineries return to the holy grail of upscale bulk wine again and again, hoping to ďŹ ll it from the spigot of an anaerobic bladder. To differentiate their product, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve devised a range of strategies. First, change the color of the box. Black Box Winesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; packaging conceit is surely meant to resonate with â&#x20AC;&#x153;black tieâ&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x201D;as in, one neednâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel ashamed of serving it at the next society fundraiser, and even the next fundraiser after that. The bladder-in-the-box keeps wine fresh for weeks after ďŹ rst tapping the spigot, upon which it gushes out in an alarmingly fulsome stream. The 2007 Monterey County Chardonnay ($25 for 3 liters) has the aroma of popped popcorn, a nip of lemon zest and a lemonade standâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worth of zing. Fine for your unstuffy buttery Chard fans; a glass was enough for me. Boasting a Sonoma County appellation, the deep purple NV Reserve Merlot ($32 for three liters) shows stewed fruit, plum and heavy char aromas, with a racy acidic attack and drying, terry-cloth tannin. These exaggerations made the wine seem to be hanging a sandwich board, declaring, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Serious Merlot here, really!â&#x20AC;? Not too bad an effort, but I preferred the less aggressive 2007 Central Coast Cabernet Sauvignon ($25 for 3 liters). The ruby red wine, with small servings of cassis, cherry skin and plum, isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t trying to be anything but a simple, easy-to-like wine thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s both more than expected and exactly what I want from a practically never-ending tap. Second, change the shape of the box. No nonsense, lightweight Tetra Paksâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;think soy milk and soup stockâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; are gaining shelf space and lowering carbon footprints, according to the 10-point sermon printed on a carton of Three Thieves Bandit Wine. The 2007 California Cabernet Sauvignon ($5) pops out of the box with jammy, strawberry-preserve fruit. Dry and substantial, it would be a fun picnic quaff, if the steely ďŹ nish didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t linger a bit too long after the fruity artiďŹ ce fades. Somewhat sadly, Three Thieves jettisoned the little glass jugs of Lodi Zinfandel and Tempranillo that endeared many to the brand. Third, ditch the box and go back to the screw-top jug. Sonoma Valley upstart Bedrock Wine Co. delves back into the beguiling boutique jug arena with â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sherman & Hookerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Shebangâ&#x20AC;? North Coast Red Wine ($15.99). The second cuvĂŠe skips on the Sonoma Valley vineyards and preâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Civil War backstory of the ďŹ rst, but with better results. The old-fashioned blend has rustic airs and barrel-aged pedigree. Opaquely purple, it gives up just a hint of dark fruit, cured ďŹ gs and spicy Christmas cake; its chief achievement being a hearty harmony of Syrah, Petite Sirah and Zinfandel thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s both robust and wellrounded. Not too cheap, or unbreakable, it wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t last four weeks after openingâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and why in heck should it? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good for one barbecue, a wine-country tailgater or for just sippinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; on the porch, listening to public radio and watching your beard grow. James Knight

3TT_8\_PRc Playwright Peter Nachtrieb is on a collision course with destiny By David Templeton

?

eter Nachtrieb is about to destroy the world again, and for the playwright and actor, this particular apocalypse is turning out to be a pretty smart career move. Boom, Nachtriebâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s intelligent, three-actor play opening this week at the Marin Theatre Company, is the story of a very bad blind date that just happens to coincide with a meteor smacking into the earth. Evidenced by the fact that Boom has been produced, to mostly rave reviews, by six different theater companies over the last four months and is slated to be produced eight more times between now and May by companies stretching from Arizona to Alaska, it would seem that Nachtriebâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s darkly comic end-ofthe-world scenario has blasted him into a whole new phase of an already accelerating career. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It feels pretty great,â&#x20AC;? Nachtrieb says by phone from his home in San Francisco. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m definitely enjoying myself. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m pinching

myself all the time. Well, not all the timeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; once a day, tops.â&#x20AC;? The Mill Valley native first dabbled in theater in middle school, but it was while attending Marin Academy in San Rafael that Nachtrieb became more intensely entwined with the world of theater, taking his first tentative stabs at writing. After high school, he attended Brown University, where he majored in both theater and biology, a combination Nachtrieb believes has been crucial to his unique playwriting perspective. At Brown, where he further tested his playwriting skills, he was cast as Biff in a production of West Side Story, and after realizing that all of the other Jets were gay, accepted that he, also, had long been part of that particular gang. Upon returning to Northern California, he earned his MFA in creative writing at San Francisco State, and began churning out deliriously original scripts (Meaningless, Multiplex, Self Help) and collecting playwriting awards. In 2006, his play Hunter Gatherers,

about a dinner party gone terribly wrong, was staged by S.F.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Killing My Lobster sketch troupe, and by the end of the playâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sold-out three-month run, Nachtrieb was on his way. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been very busy in the three years since, working on a number of commissions and world premieres with such notable companies as Southern Californiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s South Coast Repertory and D.C.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company. But with Boom, Nachtrieb is now exploring a whole new level of success. For one thing, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s finally seeing one of his plays produced in his hometown. Though his plays have been produced all across the country, the latest staging of Boom marks Nachtriebâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first production in Marin County. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I actually think Boom is a perfect play for Marin Theatre Company, and a good match for Marin County,â&#x20AC;? Nachtrieb allows. Laughing, he adds, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kind of a weird play.â&#x20AC;? Asked to elaborate, Nachtrieb mentions Boomâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s playwithin-a-play structure. â&#x20AC;&#x153;How that works is (% one of the discoveries of the play as THE BOHEMIAN

you go though it,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are these two characters, Joe and Jules, a gay marine biologist and a female journalism student, in this basement biology classroom just before the comet hits the earth. And then thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a third character named Barbara, who is on the outskirts of the play, but who seems to have inf luence on it. As the play goes on, you learn more and more about Barbara, and what her relationship is to the main story that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re watching. That makes it a little weird, I guess.â&#x20AC;? The characters of Joe and Jules first emerged in Nachtriebâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mind while he was in grad school, knowing only that these two people would end up dealing with some sort of natural disaster, and would serve to describe some of Nachtriebâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own scientific observations about life. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always been interested in biology,â&#x20AC;? Nachtrieb says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;always thinking about human beings in a biological context, how we are all part of this large, natural system, and even if we think we are outside of that sometimes, we are very much a part of that. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d always wanted to write a play that looks at how that works. Science and biology definitely inf luence my worldview, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a big part of this play. â&#x20AC;&#x153;On a certain level, this is my play about evolution and what inf luences it. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m asking the question, how much of evolution is, you know, that something survives because it was the most fit to survive? And how much of evolution is really just chance and randomness, being in the right place at the right time? Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve read that a lot of the most rapid changes in evolution occurred after big cataclysmic eventsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;comets hitting the earth, etcetera. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Scientifically, every time a comet has hit the planet, there has been an amazing expansion of new species. In our own lives, change doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t usually happen at a rapid pace; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very gradual. But, of course, things can happen at any moment that could cause a radical shift in another direction, taking your life to unexpected new places. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what Boom is about, on one level, for all three characters in the play.â&#x20AC;? And whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s it about on the other level? â&#x20AC;&#x153;On the other level,â&#x20AC;? he says, laughing again, â&#x20AC;&#x153;itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about the worst blind date possible, one that all of a sudden has no end, because they are trapped in this lab after the surface of the planet has been made uninhabitable.â&#x20AC;? Clearly, Nachtrieb has struck a chord with this play, which explains why so many theater companies are snapping up the rights to produce it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Obviously, the theme has intrigued people,â&#x20AC;? he agrees. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And the fact that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a three-person play set in a single location makes Boom very producible, which is maybe part of why itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gotten as many productions as it has. On the other hand, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been in contact with most of the companies doing it, and there just seems to be something about it. The directors and actors whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done it or are doing it have a

really strong connection to it. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a real honor for me, because, letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s face it, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the most straightforward play. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s certainly a little bizarreâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;as am I. That so many people are finding something in the play that makes them want to produce it is an incredible joy and an honor, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not about to question their judgment.â&#x20AC;? Admittedly, Nachtriebâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plays take a slightly sideways look at life, and he populates his stories with characters who are definitely on the fringe of their respective worlds.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about the worst blind date possible, one that all of a sudden has no end, because they are trapped in this lab after the surface of the planet has been made uninhabitable.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m interested in people who are off the main train and are a little â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;particular,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My sense of humor can be a little bit on the absurdist side but is still always rooted, I hope, in some kind of logic and reality. There is a lot of absurdity in our everyday lives. There are all these absurd, ridiculous things we all do all the time that we accept as being totally normal. My plays are my way of toying around with that.â&#x20AC;? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been three years since Nachtrieb could afford to support himself solely as a playwright, a situation he is careful not to take for granted. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Being a full-time writer is certainly something Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d always planned to do,â&#x20AC;? he says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but I always knew how hard it would be to get there. I still sometimes have a hard time believing Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m actually doing it. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still a hand-to-mouth feeling about it, thinking things like, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;OK, if Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m careful and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t spend too much, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m good through March.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; I feel like I need to keep writing, and that I need to keep writing really good plays, to give them all great care. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m at the point in my career,â&#x20AC;? he continues, â&#x20AC;&#x153;where I know I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stop and I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get lazy, and I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let myself produce anything that isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the best it can be. My plan right now is to just keep going, to build on the success Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had so I can create a career that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m proud of and that keeps giving me new opportunities.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Boomâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; runs Tuesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Sunday through Dec. 6. Tuesday, Thursdayâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Saturday at 8pm; Wednesday at 7:30pm; Sunday at 2pm and 7pm. $20â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$51; Tuesday, pay what you will.

Âş

really donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think being gay is all bad. Look at our king and the fun heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s had!â&#x20AC;? So observes the outrageously inexpressive servant Bidet, about halfway through Lâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Ă&#x2030;cole de MaldetĂŞte (The School of Headaches), an inspired, all-in-verse, â&#x20AC;&#x153;all-Americanâ&#x20AC;? homage to the works of French satirist Moliereâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;with a decidedly â&#x20AC;&#x153;No on Proposition 22â&#x20AC;? spin. Presented by the Imaginists Theatre Collective, located inside an unassuming Quonset hut in the heart of Santa Rosaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s A Street arts district, the original play, written by ITCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Brent Lindsay, takes the traditional absurdist misunderstandings of commedia and adds a dash of Mel Brooks and a sprinkle of â&#x20AC;&#x2122;80s TV sitcom. Moliere was a fan of the forbidden, investing his plays with a naughty youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve-never-been-whereIâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m-about-to-take-you energy. With Lâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Ă&#x2030;cole de MaldetĂŞte, first performed in 2000â&#x20AC;&#x201C;2001 by Lindsayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s former troupe, Knights of Indulgence Theatre, Lindsay pushes Moliereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s taboo-busting spirit into the arena of same-sex attraction. What might have become an edgy, in-your-

face agit-prop, with an aura of danger and confrontation, ends up instead, as a result of Lindsayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s light authorial touch, to be a giddy, sweet, and big-hearted embrace of love, love, love. And itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all done in rhyme. Directed by Lindsay, who also performs, the five-actor cast is a bold mix, with a few former students of ITCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s apprentice programs getting a shot at working side by side with a pair of highly experienced performers. As a result, the show carries a delightfully midnight-party vibe, with all five actors clearly as committed to the technical demands of the piece as they are enjoying the wild-rumpus outlandishness of it all. That feeling could be infectious. Just when the ITC needs one most (the company is currently fundraising to keep the place open), they might have finally found the big, blowthe-doors-off hit theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been looking for. Pom Frites de MaldetĂŞte (a first-rate Lindsay) is a middle-aged teacher in a small French town who has fallen for his prize pupil, Legume (a hilarious Beto Brassan, a 16-year veteran of the theater, originally from Mexico City). Legume, insisting that he is not â&#x20AC;&#x153;that way,â&#x20AC;? has been ineptly courting the beautiful Chausette (Quenby Dolgushkin, wonderful in the role), but the wooing has been rough, mainly due to Pom Fritesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; meddling. Hoping to win Legume for himself, the lonely instructor has been relentlessly pushing his view that women are the enemy. Early on, an intense young woman named Patisserie de la Pain (Tessa Rissacher) arrives in town on business from the dying king. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s searching for the long-lost twin son of the Monarch, sent away years earlier to the country, but then lost track of. When Pom Frites mistakes her for Chausette, he bans all women from his home and school. Undeterred, and certain that Pom Frites is hiding evidence of the young manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s whereabouts, de la Pain disguises herself as a man, returning with the name Quand de la Rue. At the same time, Chausette, believing that Legume has been unfaithful, elects to resign from the world of female pursuit, and also dons the garb of a man, appearing under the name la Vache. Smitten by both of the two newcomers to town, Pom Frites ends up attempting to court both at the same time, with the help of his hilariously blank-faced servant Bidet (Erik Dolgushkin), whose apparent cluelessness may not be as real as it seems. The cross-dressing also throws Legume, who cannot understand his fierce attraction to la Vache (really Chausette), who is alarmed to find herself attracted to la Rue (really de la Pain), who definitely is â&#x20AC;&#x153;that way,â&#x20AC;? and is suddenly smitten with Chausette. By the end of the second act, even Legume is cross-dressing, the whole thing having turned into an absurdist wonderland of rainbow-colored confusion. Whatever else one might feel about The School of Headaches, this is one very funny show. And while it might not single-handedly change any minds (or overturn Prop. 22), it may introduce a whole new audience to the Imaginists, a bold and innovative ensemble committed, as Moliere was, to changing the world one laugh at a time.

atching Nicholas Cage go nutso used to be one of the most reliable pleasures of 1980s film. Times changed. Cage got pressured into playing scenes of being lost in awe as the wilder directors of the â&#x20AC;&#x2122;80s settled down and started thinking about the children. Of late, Cage is a shadow of his former self, staring solemnly at green screens or peering at the secret drawer with Millard Fillmoreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s forbidden diary in it. Werner Herzogâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shaggier-than-shaggy tale Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans is a restatement of Abel Ferraraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nouveaugrindhouse Bad Lieutenant of 1992.

ordinary mania sicklied over with a pale cast of Catholic guilt. This nihilist 2009 redo is plenty crazy, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s secular (Herzog isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t one to worry about God) and heavy on incidents rather than plot. Cop dramas are always high-concept, and this one is no different. However, Herzog takes the most easy-to-plot kind of movie and makes it unpredictable, thanks to the rolling loose cannon starring in the film. Herzog turns Cage into a Klaus Kinski surrogate. Cageâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Terrence McDonagh has a bad backâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;or so he claims to justify the massive amounts of opiates he absorbs. He walks with one shoulder hunched like Richard III, and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s further impeded by the immense .44 handgun jutting out of the polyester waistband of his suit. If Cage is horse-faced, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the horse in Picassoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Guernica. Cage is on the case of a murderer who took out five African immigrants. When not recreating, he trails a drug dealer significantly named Big Fate (Xzbit). Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard work, and the lieutenant needs lots of fortification from evidence-room cocaine and pills. Mostly, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a kind of flâneur of squalor, sticking his head through tattered screen doors or spending relaxation time with his high-priced honey, Frankie (Eva Mendes, never sweeter). Sleepless, he bops around, shaking down night-clubbers. After a few sleepless days, McDonagh starts to see imaginary lizards. Herzog introduces the motif by having an alligator POV shot, the giant reptile balefully looking at another run-over gator on the highway (his mate? is he swearing vengeance?). Meanwhile, the lieutenant is trying to fix his bookieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s daughterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s speeding ticket among the wreckage of overturned cars and gator guts. Fine supporting work abounds, with Jennifer Coolidge as a sloven, soaking up all the beer in the bayou. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s given a makeover at the end, so Coolidge can show off the finest prow this side of the USS Constitution. And the criminally underused Fairuza Balk is a dirty state trooper who canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem to keep the lieutenant awake for a tryst. Bad Lieutenant: Port of New Orleans seems intent as a franchise launcher; maybe they can stand Leslie Nielsen up for the last episode. But Cage and Herzog make it clear theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not rooting for this wreck of a man. New Orleans is essential to this grimy filmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s force: the lowering skyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a black miasma, perforated by high-rise towersâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;endless horizontals of slums, liquor stores and parking lots punctuated with long twitchy elevator rides. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a canvas for Cageâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hideocomic outbursts. (One about â&#x20AC;&#x153;a lucky crack pipeâ&#x20AC;? seems particularly quotable.) The movie has Herzogâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lizardlike eye for mania and the drug-sucking life. This lieutenant is a kid in a candy store: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s amazing how much you can get done when you have a simple purpose!â&#x20AC;? However, the film canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t find its ending. Cageâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s electric enthusiasm is bound to be downgraded by some. Truth is, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so much damn fun no one wants to see him shift gears and get into the soulfulness of the role, as he must. In short, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s another movie that would be heralded as deeper if thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d been subtitles. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Bad Lieutenant: Port of New Orleansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; opens on Friday, Nov. 20, at the Smith Rafael Cinemas, 1118 Fourth St., San Rafael. 415.454.1222.

Royal Krown Joe Krown may not be a household name in New Orleans music, but that hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stopped the grapevine from buzzing about his upcoming appearance with two seasoned bayou players, Walter â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wolfmanâ&#x20AC;? Washington and Russell Batiste Jr. Krown, a monster on the Hammond B-3 organ, was Clarence â&#x20AC;&#x153;Gatemouthâ&#x20AC;? Brownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s keyboardist for 13 years, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s this trio thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been giving him a name. His backing band represents both the old and the new out of the Crescent City. Washington, born in 1943, got his start on the road backing such singers as Lee Dorsey and Irma Thomas before founding his own band, while Batiste has laid down the beat for Allen Toussaint, the Funky Meters and Harry Connick Jr. With just three members, they make a thick sound. No one yearning for true Louisiana f lavor should miss them on Saturday, Nov. 21, at the Last Day Saloon. 120 Fifth St., Santa Rosa. 8:30pm. $15. 707.545.2343.

Animal Degree On Jan. 6, 1963, Marlin Perkins stood in front of the television cameras for the first time and introduced the world to Mutual of Omahaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Wild Kingdom, thus pioneering the â&#x20AC;&#x153;nature showâ&#x20AC;? format. Other nature shows and, indeed, entire television networks would spring up in its wake, and appearances by animal trainers eventually became a late-night television staple. One such trainer is Peter Gros, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s co-hosted Wild Kingdom since the 1980s and who occasionally goes on tour with a crazy cast of animals with which to educate and entertain the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s schoolchildren. The best part? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only 10 bucks for kids under the age of 12. Saddle up the young-uns and watch their eyes widen at Grosâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; traveling zoo on Saturday, Nov. 21, at the Lincoln Theater. 100 California Drive, Yountville. 3pm. $28; $10, children 12 and under. 707.944.1300.

Seventh Son Given the brilliance of Mose Allisonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lyricsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;pointed, wry and delivered in a knightly laid-back mannerâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to remember that the man behind the beatnik classics â&#x20AC;&#x153;Your Mind Is on Vacationâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everybodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cryinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Mercyâ&#x20AC;? is also a hell of a pianist. At 29, he included on his very first album for Prestige Records Back Country Suite only two vocal tracks; the rest, ivories, played in his impossible-to-nail-down style. Now 82, Allison can appreciate his status as a living legend, but he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t rest on his greatest hits. In concert, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s as nimble on the keys as he is varied in his set lists; thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no telling when heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll premiere a new composition or, for that matter, unearth a forgotten chestnut from an obscure 1940s Nat â&#x20AC;&#x153;Kingâ&#x20AC;? Cole session. Cross your fingers for â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lost Mindâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Young Man Bluesâ&#x20AC;? when he appears on Saturday, Nov. 21, at 19 Broadway Nightclub. 19 Broadway, Fairfax. 4:30pm and 7pm. $25â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$30. 415.459.1091.

Homeward Bound Over the course of a month traveling through America, the San Francisco country-rock band Or, the Whale ate cheese curds in St. Louis, played on top of bowling alley lanes in Minneapolis, triumphed at ping-pong on the East Coast, warmed up by a campfire in the south and had hot dogs for breakfast in Chattanooga. They also nightly polished their good-time brand of 1970s-style raggadocioâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;meaning theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be primed and ready to tear the roof off this weekend. Having played with Fleet Foxes, the Devil Makes Three, the Dodos and Two Gallants, Or, the Whale (the name is a Melville reference) is part of a new Bay Area clash of the old and the new, where Led Zeppelin and Levon Helm waltz arm in arm through the Presidio and sing of wild living in perfect four-part harmony. Welcome them home on Saturday, Nov. 21, at the Hopmonk Tavern. 230 Petaluma Ave., Sebastopol. 9:30pm. $12â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$15. 707.829.7300.

La Luna With a tortured plea, the chorus of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Simplemente Amigosâ&#x20AC;? by the Mexican pop sensation Ana Gabriel is the oldest of sentiments. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When closing the door, we loved without control,â&#x20AC;? goes the rough translation, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but they do not accept our love.â&#x20AC;? Gabriel is a deeply religious woman, appearing onstage with an ever-present carnation as a symbol of her relationship with God, so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ever more poignant that her biggest hit was inspired by a gay friendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s struggle for acceptance. Coming from one of the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s biggest stars, the song is a beautiful, heart-wrenching statement. Now with over 20 albums to her name, Gabriel, born in Sinaloa to a Spanish father and Chinese mother, is f luid in rock songs, pop ballads and rancheras, and drips with the kind of emotion that canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be faked. She performs on Thursday, Nov. 19, at the Wells Fargo Center. 50 Mark West Springs Road, Santa Rosa. 8pm. $65â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$125. 707.546.3600.

No overdubs, no funny stuff for the Aces nee Deep in Mudâ&#x20AC;? isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just a song on the Acesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; fantastic new CD, No One Rides for Freeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a manifesto of the bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sound. Dirty, swampy and greasy in all the right ways, the Aces peddle a tumescent tone that hits the gut like a hangover plate of corned beef hash, but instead of potatoes and onions, the Aces sling low cymbals, a tuned-down guitar and a vintage Fender spring reverb tank. Topping it off is Sky Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Banionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pummeling harmonica, blown through a self-made microphone cobbled from various vintage parts and run through Charlie Musselwhiteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s old Meteor amp, and damn, does it ever sound mean. The Aces have been around for 13 years, but theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re ďŹ nally experiencing what lead guitarist Derek Irving calls their â&#x20AC;&#x153;midlife rebirthing.â&#x20AC;? Earlier this year they ďŹ&#x201A;ew to Memphis for the International Blues Challenge and placed in the Top 10; Musselwhiteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hooked them up with good shows; and a record label based in Barcelona, Spain, of all places, got in touch about ďŹ nally hitting the studio. Surprisingly, No One Rides for Free was recorded completely live in just 10 hours. No overdubs. No funny stuff. Just the raw deal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nobody in the band is really into that style of clean blues,â&#x20AC;? says Irving, and as such, the bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s barrage of saturated tubes doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always ďŹ t with the smooth, wine country blues so popular around the area; pompadours are a more common pairing than Pinot for their roughand-tumble performances. No One Rides for Free, from the steam-train â&#x20AC;&#x153;Stole Something from Meâ&#x20AC;? to the lonesome â&#x20AC;&#x153;Drinkinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Song,â&#x20AC;? has the mark of a solid band eschewing whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s popular for whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s honest. Get knee-deep in mud and glass-high in beer at their release party on Saturday, Nov. 21, at the Russian River Brewing Company. 725 Fourth St., Santa Rosa. 8pm. Free. 707.545.2337.

Richard Thompson on girls, guitars and going to heaven By Michael Shapiro

A

ichard Thompson plays guitar with the dexterity and precision of Mark Knopfler, writes with the authority and brilliance of Pete Townshend, and sings with the ferocity of a wrongly convicted prisoner. So why isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t he better known? Hard to say. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s probably the diversity and sophistication of his songs coupled with record executivesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; blunders. And yet in a phone interview, Thompson doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem bitter about not getting the attention and fame he deserves. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d rather be underrated then overrated,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is a different kind of frustration that goes with being a successful but bland musician.â&#x20AC;? It was a long road from Thompsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s youth to being voted one of Rolling Stoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Top 20 guitarists of all time. He grew up listening to traditional Scottish tunes and mid-century jazz, and as a teenager founded the British folk-rock outfit Fairport Convention. Fairport started in the â&#x20AC;&#x2122;60s performing cover songs, but even when he was 18, the impatiently inventive Thompson was dissatisfied with performing othersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; work. So he learned to write songs. Over the years, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s become one of the best storytellers in music. One example from Thompsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 1994 song â&#x20AC;&#x153;Beeswing,â&#x20AC;? about a wanderer for whom â&#x20AC;&#x153;even a Gypsy caravan was too much settling down,â&#x20AC;? concludes, â&#x20AC;&#x153;As long as thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no price on love, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll stay / And you wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want me any other way.â&#x20AC;? Combine lyrics like these with Thompsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s guitar styleâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;ranging from

soft for ballads to incendiary on his rock songsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and what emerges is a performer who deserves a place among rockâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s royalty. Thompsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s British wit, too, is distinctive. When asked where he lives, he replies, â&#x20AC;&#x153;London for the weather, L.A. for the culture.â&#x20AC;? When fans yell out requests at his shows, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll quip, â&#x20AC;&#x153;You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think I know what to play next?â&#x20AC;? Thompson became better known on this side of the pond in 1982, when he and thenwife, vocalist Linda Thompson, released their final album together, Shoot Out the Lights. With heartbreaking lyrics about a couple in crisis, the album sounds like a husband and wife fighting to the death of their relationship. Yet the songs, including â&#x20AC;&#x153;Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Renege on Our Loveâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wall of Death,â&#x20AC;? were written â&#x20AC;&#x153;a year to two years before we split,â&#x20AC;? Thompson says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I suppose if they were presaging something, it was unconscious or subconscious. We were not consciously charting our demise. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only after the fact that you can look at it and say, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Oh, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a divorce albumâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;look what these people were going through.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? After the divorce, Richard Thompson rebuilt his career as a solo artist, hitting new heights on his 1988 album Amnesia, with its riveting song â&#x20AC;&#x153;Canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Win,â&#x20AC;? about the emotional wounds parents inf lict on their kids. Amnesia and his next album, Rumour and Sigh, demonstrate the range of Thompsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work, from personal songs (â&#x20AC;&#x153;The names were changed to protect the guilty,â&#x20AC;? he says) to imaginative storytelling, evident in his

enduring, brilliant saga, â&#x20AC;&#x153;1952 Vincent Black Lightning.â&#x20AC;? Even in fictional character sketches, â&#x20AC;&#x153;thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always a bit of you in there, a bit of your life experience,â&#x20AC;? Thompson says, though he admits thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s often much exaggeration. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You tend to write about people who are going through extreme circumstances. Just everyday life doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t show heroism or how people reveal their humanity. You have to have shipwrecks, you know, and mining disasters.â&#x20AC;? Released in 1991, Rumour and Sigh gave Thompson a moment of fame with the song â&#x20AC;&#x153;I Feel So Goodâ&#x20AC;? about a convict counting down the days to his release from prison. The album shows the panoramic range of Thompsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s subjects, from the adolescent who thinks he can be a good lover because he â&#x20AC;&#x153;Read About Loveâ&#x20AC;? to the disheartened husband who has to beg for his wifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s touch in â&#x20AC;&#x153;Why Must I Plead.â&#x20AC;? Thompsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best albums improve with age. Repeat listenings reveal ever-deeper layers of emotion and musical subtlety. With literary skill, he possesses a knack for humanizing the fringe and downcast characters who live on the margins of our society. From â&#x20AC;&#x153;God Loves a Drunk,â&#x20AC;? he empathizes that â&#x20AC;&#x153;God loves a drunk, the lowest of men / With the dogs in the street and the pigs in the pen / But a drunkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only trying to get free of his body / And soar like an eagle high up there in heaven.â&#x20AC;? Onstage, even when performing solo as heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll do during a two-night stand, Dec. 2â&#x20AC;&#x201C;3 at Petalumaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mystic Theatre, Thompson sounds uncannily like heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s playing two guitars at once. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was frustrated that guitarists couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do what piano players could do; separate things with the left hand and the right hand,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Through a style of finger-pickingâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;playing bass and melody lines at the same timeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m able to cover more ground. It also comes from playing in a band, and then going out to do solo shows and trying to fill in the gaps.â&#x20AC;? After recording Mock Tudor in 1999 for Capitol Records, Thompson elected to leave major labels to manage his own recordings. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s much nicer to be in control of the production of oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own records,â&#x20AC;? he says, and â&#x20AC;&#x153;not have to answer to anybody else. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a bit more local, a bit more down-home. I hope I can continue to do it that way.â&#x20AC;? Thompson wrote the instrumental soundtrack for Grizzly Man, the 2005 Werner Herzog film about a man who thought heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d become friends with bears. As in some of Thompsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s songs, the film didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t end well for the main character. Now 60, Thompson recently completed an ambitious project titled 1000 Years of Popular Music, covering everything from madrigals to Britney Spears. He has been performing for more than four decades, and to mark the occasion, a definitive fourCD box set, Walking on a Wire, was released over the summer. He has no desire to hang up his axe. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d love to keep playingâ&#x20AC;? for another 10 or 20 years, he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It would probably be nice to tour a bit less, but I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think of anything Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d rather do than to keep touring and just die onstage. That would be fine.â&#x20AC;?

Sofa races and tomfoolery mark Winterblast f the Frosty suit has been rented, that means Winterblast is on. An outdoor holiday street festival that has grown into its own odd shape over the last five years, Winterblast celebrates the artists and craftspeople who work on Santa Rosaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s South A Street adjacent to Juilliard Park. Past years have found pin-up girls posing for photos in storefront windows, fire dancers and stilt walkers in the streets and student performers from the San Francisco School of Circus Arts practicing all manner of public tomfoolery with an amiable crowdâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s happy approval. And every year features a stalwart youth willing to spend the evening in a heavy hot fur suit waving to passerby outfitted as Frosty the Snowman. New innovation being the key to this much free fun, the fifth annual Winterblast naturally introduces the sofa race. Couches on wheels will â&#x20AC;&#x153;raceâ&#x20AC;? from the alley fronting the Uribe Studios over to Sebastopol Avenue by the Seed raw food restaurant and then back over to South A Street. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s based on the fact that we want a community event that people can partake in and have a good time and a spinoff a little bit from the Handcar Regatta,â&#x20AC;? explains artist Jennifer Hirschfield. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You know, make it funky. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re also doing an official naming of the neighborhood: South of A, even though itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s South A.â&#x20AC;? The thinking goes like this: In fine urban tradition, South of A becomes SofA; in fine irreverent tradition, no oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bothering to care that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not south of anything other than the rest of A as long as it forms an acronym that can be placed on wheels. In addition to kinetic seating, the Hubbub Club marching band enacts its seamless magic and foundobject sculptor Monty Monty debuts instruments made from cast-offs. Artists Mario and Liz Uribe have engaged a taco truck to set up in their alley adjacent to fire pits that will blaze for marshmallow roasting, and the Imaginist Theater Collective plan a late-night presentation of their Moliere-influenced farce Lâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Ă&#x2030;cole de MaldetĂŞte (The School of Headaches, see review, p31), hoping to give more exposure to this struggling but innovative troupe, a recent winner of our Boho Award. And those are just the plans that we know about. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have to show up to discover the rest. All in all, quite a blast. Winterblast is slated for Saturday, Nov. 21, from 5pm to 8pm. South A Street, adjacent to Juilliard Park, Santa Rosa. Free. 707.332.1212. Gretchen Giles

SVMAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2009 biennial now a surprise fundraiser he year is closing in fast, and many institution heads are looking at their accounting books with those sad little faces we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like to see on anyone, least of all on the faces leading our favorite art institutions. To combat end-of-year woes, the Sonoma Valley Museum of Art is taking an unusual tack and selling about 70 percent, according to SVMA executive director Kate Eilertsen, of those works currently on exhibit for its 2009 Biennial show. Juried by gallerist Susan Cummins, painter and CCA instructor Frances McCormack and Sonoma State University professor Michael Schwager, who is also the head of his institutionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s art gallery, the biennial gathered some 48 North Bay artists in a wide-ranging exhibit of local talent. Biennials offer a chance for midcareer and emerging artists to gain recognition and wall space, and they typically showcase the best a certain field or geographic region has to offer. The artists vie to win prize money, and all receive the honor of being selected by top colleagues for placement. What they almost never do is get their stuff sold right off the exhibition walls. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We needed to have a fundraiser before the end of the year,â&#x20AC;? Eilertsen explains, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and many of the artists were interested in selling their work, so we came up with this one-night-only idea. About 70 percent of the work will be for sale.â&#x20AC;? Because it was gathered for a biennial, some of the art is on loan or not for sale; for example, second place winner Holly Blake is unable to offer any of her pieces. But first place winner Will Smith (whose work is above), will be able to. And with bids starting at $125, the price is right. Called â&#x20AC;&#x153;You Gotta Have Art,â&#x20AC;? this swift fundraiser is slated for Nov. 20, and the de rigueur food, wine and live music will be on tap. Events at SVMA always feature a â&#x20AC;&#x153;signature cocktailâ&#x20AC;? nimbly mixed up by fairly gleeful museum board members with a sweet taste for the glass. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This time itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s limoncello,â&#x20AC;? Eilertsen says somewhat uncertainly. Informed that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a delicious lemon-infused liqueur with a highly flammable alcohol content, she laughs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I could use one right now and,â&#x20AC;? she pauses, speaking frankly to the reporter, â&#x20AC;&#x153;so could you.â&#x20AC;? Cin cin! You Gotta Have Art happens on Friday, Nov. 20, from 6:30pm to 9pm. Sonoma Valley Museum of Art, 551 Broadway, Sonoma. $40â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$50. 707.939.1080. Gretchen Giles

New Santa Rosa film and art collective aims high, big and wide he three men gathered on the Love Level of the Bohemianâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s offices are wired. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re bringing our ADD vision to life,â&#x20AC;? one of them proclaims. And for the next 30 minutes, a veritable boil of ideas pours forth from them, none deficient or disorderly at all in getting attention. The threeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;David Fields, Eric McIntyre and Jason Perdueâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;represent the nucleus of the North Bay Film and Art Collective (NBFAC), a new nonprofit aimed, McIntyre says, at bringing â&#x20AC;&#x153;art, film and music to a community thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s desperate for it.â&#x20AC;? To that end, the NBFAC has taken up residence in the old brick building that last served as the North Bay campus for New College of California. Owned by the Arlene Francis Foundation, the building has been empty for some good time, and its location right in the heart of Santa Rosaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Railroad Square makes it perfectly situated to capture some of the creative energy of that areaâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;home in September, for example, to the Handcar Regattaâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and find it a spot to enjoy even on rainy days. The first above-radar event planned by the NBFAC begins Nov. 19 with the launch of the Global Lens film series, a suite of international documentaries. The collective has enlisted a stellar slate of chefs to pair Saturday-night screenings of the films with food cooked by such area stars as Gary Chu (Nov. 21) and Matteo Granados (Dec. 19) as well as underground restaurant mavens the Blind Pig (Dec. 5) and the organic wisdom of the folks at Peter Lowellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s (Dec. 12). The films on these nights are preceded by an appetizer course, stopped for an intermission with the main course and followed by dessert for $40 a person or $70 a couple. Running Thursdayâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Sunday through Dec. 20, films without food are just $10, and the Nov. 19 opening-night party is $25. The Macedonian film I Am from Titov Veles, above, screens Dec. 11. But screening films isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t enoughâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the trio are also making one. With the working title Meat Utopia, they are documenting modern-day meat culture, also plan the establishment of an online channel NorthBayTV.net and even a theater space inside the building replete with a green screen. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People want art, they want edgy and exciting fun. We want to be an epicenter for that,â&#x20AC;? McIntyre emphasizes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to be a community center in that way, but a directed one.â&#x20AC;? The Global Lens film series begins on Thursday, Nov. 19, at 7pm; opening-night party follows at 9pm. Screenings run Thursdayâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Sunday through Dec. 20. Thursday at 10am and 7pm; Friday at 6pm and 8pm; Saturday at 7pm (dinner pairing); Sunday at 11am. $10â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$70. 99 Sixth St., Santa Rosa. 707.527.0627. Gretchen Giles

Meet Ewok • Kitty of the Week

Place your pet related ad here today! Call 707.527.1200

HI, I'M EWOK, a 1-year old female kitty. I love to sit in the sun and warm myself but it's hard sometime to find the time when there's so much to do: toys to play with, other cats to pounce on, naps to take.

Meet Ewok • Kitty of the Week

Meet Bandit • Doggie of the Week

HI, I'M EWOK, a 1-year old female kitty. I love to sit in the sun and warm myself but it's hard sometime to find the time when there's so much to do: toys to play with, other cats to pounce on, naps to take. It's a full-time job but not yet a full life – I need a home! Can you provide it? May the Force be with you. To learn more about adopting Ewok or many other homeless animals at the Sonoma Humane Society, please visit us or check us out online.

MEET BANDIT!!! We guarantee it, this little 1year old Terrier mix will steal your heart! What a face! And what a sweet personality, full of energy and curiosity and eager to explore the world with you to guide him. Properly introduced, he'd be good with children and other pets. To learn more about adopting Bandit or many other homeless animals at the Sonoma Humane Society, please visit us or check us out online.
