I am constantly amazed at the knowledge and experience of my professors. They’ve healed thousands of people, and yet they are so humble. For them, this medicine seems to be a joy and a life calling, rather than a job.

DECINZO RIGHT ON IN DISPARAGING DeCinzoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cartoon that depicts the city bulldozing â&#x20AC;&#x153;science-based evidenceâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;democracyâ&#x20AC;? (among other things), Charlotte Webster (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cartoon Facts,â&#x20AC;? Posts, April 25) omits some critical points about the desal issue. Many scientifically supported solutions to our water problem have been proposed, but the city, in its years-long, $12 million (to date) push for a desal plant, has refused to commit any reasonable sum of money to investigate these. The most feasible alternativeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;that of improved winter water storage (itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like money in the bank!)â&#x20AC;&#x201D;requires a political commitment to cooperation among the three affected water districts. Storage would cost far less and be less environmentally

destructive than desal. Nor would storage alter the character of our Westside neighborhoods, as would a desal plant with all its associated infrastructure. Desal, on the other hand, requires no political will, only an obscene amount of money in this fragile economy: $180 million, including financing. The cartoonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s portrayal of city council destroying democracy is right on the mark. While the council approved an ordinance to put desal on the ballot (after the Rightto-Vote-on-Desal began its campaign for a charter amendment), how democratic is it if the powers-that-be have the legal right to withdraw the ordinance before itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s voted on? In contrast, the petition currently being circulated in the city by Right-ToVote-on-Desal puts the decision inalienably

in the votersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; hands. Please check RTVOD. org or call 419-6441 to find out where to sign this petition. Karen Minkowski Santa Cruz

STEP RIGHT UP! ONE RECENT Sunday morning (the 22ndâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Earth Day!) I was meditating in my pyramid that I constructed over a crop circle that mysteriously appeared in my backyard during Y2K. Attempting to channel the songs of Mu sung by whales, my chakras achieved alignment and my aura began to hum and vibrate like an overloaded PG&E transformer. Suddenly an air chrysalis materialized in front of me, shimmering with colors that I could feel rather than see. It was like being at the Mystery Spot during the harmonic convergence or how I felt after a week following the tenets of Breathology. It slowly dissolved, leaving behind the glowing form of a spirit guide from the past whose teachings still resonate to this day. His mouth opened and out poured honey-gold words of wisdom. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To seek and understand the truth of Bigfoot (Sasquatch to the enlightened), gaze through a crystal while viewing Thrive.â&#x20AC;? With a poof ! he was gone, only leaving behind the pungent effluvium of barnyard. Later, I read that at the moment, a meteorite passed overhead and exploded; a coincidence? I think not. There are some out there who may be skeptical, but because I said this happened to me, I believe it. I urge all who seek the truth, keep looking. Oh, the spirit guideâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s identity? P.T. Barnum.

NOTE FROM THE EDITOR In the summer of 2009 we started running a monthly feature called â&#x20AC;&#x153;Local Poets, Local Inspiration.â&#x20AC;? Each installment, curated by Robert Sward, presented work by one of Santa Cruzâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s finest literary voicesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;poets such as Gary Young, David Swanger, Ellen Bass and numerous lesserknown scribes. All good things must end, and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re officially discontinuing the feature, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a good run. We thank Robert Sward for his hard work, the poets for their genius and Santa Cruz for providing the local inspiration.

BERRY GOOD BUSINESS MODEL Young Brock Horton enjoys a strawberry from the Homeless Garden U-Pick CSA while Maria Caradonna looks on in this 2011 photo.

A Growing Enterprise CSAs help farmers make it through

C

â&#x20AC;&#x153;CSAs make it doable for farmers,â&#x20AC;? says Chris Menge of Tierra Madre Farm, a Santa Cruz County nursery operation that is offering its first Community Supported Agriculture program this spring. In the CSA model, customers pay a farm at the beginning of the season and receive a basket of produce each week. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s actually supporting the farm because farmers receive almost retail price,â&#x20AC;? Menge says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and the money comes in at the beginning of the season, when costs are the highest.â&#x20AC;? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no secret that Santa Cruz County has long had a vibrant local food scene; one need look no further than the daily farmers markets, or grocery shelves that are stocked with produce grown just a few miles away. For more and more locals, though, the best way to get local produce is through CSAs, which typically deliver weekly boxes of produce to a given location, where subscribers can then pick up their weekly allocations.

BY SALLY NEAS

CSAs are not a new phenomenon, having spread to California from the East Coast in the early â&#x20AC;&#x2122;90s. But they have recently taken off in popularity, here and throughout the state. One UCâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Davis study showed a doubling of CSAs in the Central Valley between 2004 and 2009. According to that study, one reason theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve become so popular is their direct marketing model. CSAs also allow shoppers and farmers to move beyond the typical consumer and producer relationship. Customer interest in CSAs often stems from a desire to not only support a specific farm but to form a personal relationship with it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People are wanting the opportunity to connect with land and farms, and to be a part of something that is so fundamental and real,â&#x20AC;? says Kirsten Yogg of Santa Cruzâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Freewheelinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Farm. Many CSAs encourage member involvement by hosting events, or even allowing customers to stroll through the fields with on-farm pickups. Another reason for the popularity of

CSAs is the quality of produce. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People want to get the freshest and highest-quality produce,â&#x20AC;? Yogg says. Customers are also exposed to a rich diversity of produce, and varieties that are rarely available in markets. For example, Tierra Madre focuses on rare and heirloom varieties, with the goal of both preserving these cropsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;which might otherwise become virtually extinctâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and also exposing more customers to their unique flavors and characteristics. While CSAs traditionally focus on fruits and vegetables, farmers markets in Santa Cruz County are expanding to offer more local products. Fogline Farm, a Soquel-based, 50-member CSA, also provides its members with a weekly protein source in the form of a whole chicken, a dozen eggs or pork. Tierra Madre Farm will also be stocking their baskets with staples like dry beans and dry corn for flour. 4]`OZWab]TZ]QOZ1A/adWaWbeee aO\bOQ`chQ][O\RQZWQY]\<Sea

Ayes Have It ?^bAVee, pastor for Hi#HiZe]ZcĂ&#x2030;h Aji]ZgVc8]jgX] in Santa Cruz, says the nonprofit8DE6 is an important organization. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And are we powerful because we have a lot of wealth and influence?â&#x20AC;? Lapp asked the crowd at a COPA event April 30. â&#x20AC;&#x153;No!â&#x20AC;? audience members yelled, many of them shaking water bottle maracas filed with coffee beans. On Monday night at Temple Beth El, COPA (Communities Organized for Relational Power in Action) held a forum to see if Santa Cruzâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s District 1 and 2 supe candidates would, if elected, agree to address COPAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Stand Up and Take Charge Agenda, which outlines recommendations on housing, community health, immigration and other issues. COPA asked candidates three questions: Will you work with COPA on the agenda? If elected, will you meet with COPA within 45 days of taking office? And will you come to COPAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Regional Accountability Session in October? The questions received â&#x20AC;&#x153;yesâ&#x20AC;? answers from all six candidates, with the exception of <Vgn6gcdaY, a District 1 candidate (whose website recently posted a confusing article titled â&#x20AC;&#x153;COPAâ&#x20AC;Ś The Lucifer Connection?â&#x20AC;?). Arnold answered â&#x20AC;&#x153;maybeâ&#x20AC;? to the first question and â&#x20AC;&#x153;yesâ&#x20AC;? to the others. District 2 candidate OVX];g^ZcY committed to the agreements, including the accountability session, which falls on his parentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 40th wedding anniversary, on the stipulation that COPA â&#x20AC;&#x153;will commit to calling my mom and explaining to her why Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not [at her party].â&#x20AC;? District 1 incumbent ?d]c AZdedaY and candidate 8]VgaZh EVjaYZc also attended, as did District 2 candidates G^X]BX>cc^h and 6cidc^dG^kVhâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;all of them agreeing to the agenda. COPAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s campaign covers a range of topics, including initiatives to streamline permitting practices and a buy-local preference policy for public agencies. The campaign also seeks to ensure every foreclosure would go through mediation with banks before being finalized.â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Jacob Pierce

OIL BE SEEING YOU In a netra basti treatment, the eyeball is bathed in warm clarified butter.

Ghee Whiz An ayurvedic treatment uses an eyeopening ingredient BY MARIA GRUSAUSKAS

I

ITâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S HARD to imagine a world without sight, yet itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not very often that we give thanks to the organ responsible. The eyeball is, after all, a miraculously perfect lens; a portal between our brains and the uncensored images of the outside world. The ancient ayurvedic treatment called netra basti concentrates on the deep relaxation of the ocular muscles while cleansing and lubricating the eyeball and socket with castor oil

(said to prevent cataracts), rose water or, most commonly, ghee (clarified butter). Local ayurvedic practitioner Heather Nagel recommends the treatment for anyone who spends long hours gazing into a computer screen. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The computer screen is hypnotizing. It literally draws you in and causes you not to blink as much,â&#x20AC;? says Nagel, who, along with Talya Lutzker, volunteers her time at the non-profit ayurvedic clinic


9

Aushadi Santa Cruz. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The eyes dry out and over time that causes damage to the ocular tissue.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;â&#x20AC;&#x2122;Netraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; means eyes. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Bastiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; indicates where youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re basically enclosing one area of the body so that you can give it very specific attention and treatment,â&#x20AC;? says Lutzker, just minutes before I allow her to pour hot butter into my eyeball. Two raw whole wheat bagels, or â&#x20AC;&#x153;dough dams,â&#x20AC;? lay next to the massage table, and Lutzker informs me that they will be the method of enclosing the ghee over my eye. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It needs to be sticky enough to stick to your skin, but not sticky enough that you have f lour residue on your face,â&#x20AC;? she says, adding that years of practice have helped her find the perfect consistency. She sets to work adhering the bagels to my face,

and the cool pressure of the dough around my eye socket is immediately tranquilizing. Once the seal is complete, Lutzker pours about an eighth of a cup of warm ghee over my closed eyelid. It feels extremely strangeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;warm and goopyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;but I realize there is no need to wince. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The ghee just weighs on your eyeball a little bit. The idea is that whatever is behind your eyeball comes out, dirt or particles, or mucus. Mucus in the eyes is pretty common,â&#x20AC;? explains Lutzker. She tells me that whenever I am ready I can open my eyelid and gaze into the warm goo. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like looking through murky stained glass: I can only see a vague outline of Lutzkerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s face hovering above me. It stings slightly, too, almost like looking into a bright light. A little burning is normal, says Lutzker, and it slackens off once the ghee finds its way into what I imagine must be my tear ducts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The eye is also the same channel as the liver. So in theory and in practice, your liver is being nourished and excreted in this treatment as wellâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;in a very subtle level, of course,â&#x20AC;? Lutzker says. For about 15 minutes, I do nothing but move my eyeball around in all directions as Lutzker massages the skin around my eyes through the ghee. I never want it to stop. But life as we know it must go on, and Lutzker gently interrupts my alpha wave bliss to pour out the ghee. Sure enough, there are tiny black particles and unidentified f loating globules (probably mucus) now f loating in it. Although I leave the clinic smelling like an uncooked pie crust, and my vision is not miraculously sharper, as I had hoped it would be (on the contrary, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a bit blurry for the first two hours after treatment), my eyeballs feel extremely well pampered, and a few hours later I fall into one of the most restful nights of sleep I have had in years.

The 1991 back-yard play that launched some high-powered careers in theater returns to the Santa Cruz stage BY JAYME KELLY CURTIS

E]didXdjgiZhnHiZe]Vc^Z<da^cd

4/B63@<=A303AB Isabella Negrete is Pinocchio and returning cast member Tom McKoy is Geppetto in â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Pinocchio & Carlo Collodi.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Inset: The 1991 Capitola production featured a blue whale â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;swallowingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; father and wooden boy.

A 20-foot blue whale comes floating down Soquel Creek when suddenly a rowboat carrying two passengers emerges from the mouth of the leviathan. The astonished onlookers gathered on the banks gasp at the sight, then gasp again as the boat and its passengers are sucked back into the giant maw. This drama repeats several times as the boaters paddle madly, only to be consumed again and again, until at last they free themselves from the watery beast to the delighted cheers of the people on the shore. It happened in 1991 as part of the premiere performance of Pinocchio & Carlo Collodi, an adaptation of the Pinocchio story that sprang from the mind of local author Stephanie Golino. The â&#x20AC;&#x153;stageâ&#x20AC;? was Golinoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s picturesque Capitola backyard, but the performance had far greater reach than the venue would suggest: the play indirectly inspired a number of Santa Cruz children to become theater professionals. Next weekend, when Pinocchio & Carlo Collodi returns to the West End Studio Theatre for a two-weekend run, it will open with several original cast members (in new age-appropriate roles) and against a rich backdrop of deep community involvement going back 20 years.

Stephanie Golino didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t set out to write plays. Entering her fourth decade, she was busy being a wife, mother and dancer when she experienced a creative burst, writing and producing two plays in a single year. A chance remark from her father-in-law, a Dante scholar, inspired the first. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He told me that Carlo Collodi wrote Pinocchio to pay off his gambling debts,â&#x20AC;? says Golino. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I decided to write an adaptation of the Pinocchio story from the perspective of the author, his loan shark, his landlady and his long-suffering girlfriend.â&#x20AC;? The play opened with a cast of adult and child performers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Twenty years ago I had friends in their thirties and forties who were all in the arts and also had small children,â&#x20AC;? says Golino. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wanted to write a show that worked on multiple levels, both intellectually and pragmatically. The idea was to provide an opportunity for my friends to be in a show with their children and to engage both mindsets. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The 1991 production was a watershed that created a passageway into theater arts for several of the original cast members,â&#x20AC;? she continues. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Several kids from the original group transitioned into regular members of Creating Theatre, a program I started that morphed out of the Pinocchio experience. Twenty years later itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gratifying to see the lives these kids and others have built around their love of theater arts.â&#x20AC;?

The MarionetteTurned-Fiancee Erin Johnson was one of the original child actors in the landmark production, playing a marionette. She went on to earn a degree from the prestigious College of Creative Studies at UCâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Santa Barbara and interned at Shakespeare Santa Cruz. Her training with Golino remains a strong force in her life and emerging career in holistic healing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The way Stephanie works is that she sort of meets people and casts them, and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re usually amazing in the role that she sees for them,â&#x20AC;? says Johnson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That early experience with her gave me an outlook that

everyone has a secret talent or something inside them that may not be apparent. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s taught me that everyone has amazing potential.â&#x20AC;? Johnson returns to play Carlo Collodiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exasperated fiancee, Angela, who is also a counterpart to the fairy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Like the fairy, Angela is Collodiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s guiding light, but sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spicy. She wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t marry Collodi because heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a grownup,â&#x20AC;? says Johnson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She wants him to become a real man.â&#x20AC;? Johnson also has a recurring role as a rag lady, showing up whenever someone wants to sell something. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sort of on the make,â&#x20AC;? says Johnson, â&#x20AC;&#x153;always buying little objects that are important to the story and passing them on to the other characters. Pinocchio doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what money is. She shows the world of money and the reality of being hungry.â&#x20AC;? Johnson says Golinoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s compassionate approach to characters and humans allows for an expansive view of human potential. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Stephanie looks at characters and people in a magical way that lets you love them for their faults,â&#x20AC;? she says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;such as Carloâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gambling problem. She doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make excuses for them, but you still see the character as a whole person. Stephanie believes, and I would agree, that what inspires great art is everything from your life. You might be broke and hungry or maybe youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in love. Some of the most amazing art comes out of nothing.â&#x20AC;?

The GamblerTurned-Better Angel In the original production Collodi was played by local actor Tom McKoy. Now in his sixties, McKoy returns in the role of Geppetto, although with a twist. In Golinoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s version, Geppetto is Collodiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s publisher, a positive force who encourages Collodi to â&#x20AC;&#x153;man up.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Collodiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s publisher inspires him to get to work,â&#x20AC;? says McKoy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s this notion of Geppetto urging Collodi to use his creative abilities and apply himself. Geppetto is both a father figure to Collodi and also the creator of Pinocchio through the imagination, through the pen of Collodi. Sometimes itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s difficult to tell which is the creator and which ¨ %

is the character. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the way Stephanie wrote it.â&#x20AC;? McKoyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s son Tommy was in the first Pinocchio. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That was part of the attraction,â&#x20AC;? says McKoy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tommy did some theater at Santa Cruz High, and I think working with Stephanie helped him move into that. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s now a content designer for online textbooks. Over the last 25 or more years I have worked in local theater and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always been a delight. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a short step from being an ingĂŠnue to being an old fart. Working with Stephanie is always lots of fun.â&#x20AC;?

The Cat-TurnedPlaywright Erin Bregman played the cat in the second of three local productions of Pinocchio & Carlo Collodi and went on to participate in the first Creating Theatre group. An award-winning playwright with a string of credits and commissions, Bregman now earns a living as a teaching artist for the San Francisco Opera Company. Additionally, she runs Little Opera, a childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opera company. She has led more than 40 classes of children through every aspect of creating an original opera. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wonder if I would be able to do the jobs that I do if not for those early experiences with Stephanie,â&#x20AC;?

The Child-TurnedStar â&#x20AC;&#x153;I fondly remember Stephanie as a woman who trusted usâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;young childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;with our instincts and creativity,â&#x20AC;? says actress Kira Sternbach, who had a small role in the play as a child, then returned to play Angela as a young adult. Sternbach has subsequently logged more than 20 professional theatrical performances and appeared in 10 film and television productions, four of them in lead roles. Most recently she was seen on CSI, and will soon be guest-starring in The Closer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She made me believe in myself, at a very young age, in a very difficult profession.â&#x20AC;?

The MarionetteTurned-Director Golinoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s idea of turning her house and yard into a theatrical space has perhaps most significantly affected Daria J. Davis. Davis played a marionette in the original production and is now a successful director in Chicago and at the University of Texas in Austin. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The concept of directing a play to be site-specific has become a buzzword,â&#x20AC;? says Davis. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But Stephanie pioneered this and it has definitely influenced me.

says Bregman. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So much of what I do involves trusting children and really having high standards for their creativity. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about trusting the kids enough to let them lead and guide the process.â&#x20AC;? Bregman cites Golinoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s influence in her writing, as well. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Stephanieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plays all have movement and music. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve written anything that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have that,â&#x20AC;? says Bregman. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not dance theater per se. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m more of a musician than a dancer. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all the performing arts combined in a really natural way thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty rare. My work is different from a lot of playwrights in that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very visual, too. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an approach that lends a rhythm. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think I would do theater at all if it hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been for her. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 100 percent responsible for everything Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m doing now.â&#x20AC;?

The Little KidTurned-Dancer â&#x20AC;&#x153;The whale in Pinocchio was the first big set piece I ever saw,â&#x20AC;? recalls former student Sebastian Grubb, now a professional dancer and trainer who tours nationally with AXIS Dance Company. He was so young in the first Pinocchio he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t remember his role. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Stephanieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s group is where I had some of my first spoken lines. She was my main and most continuous theater teacher. â&#x20AC;&#x153;On a personal level Stephanie continues to be a guide and a mentor,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very generous. She checks in, gives me advice. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been an invaluable association.â&#x20AC;?

mounted the production as part of his masterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s degree thesis. The play now bears the fingerprints of many people. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The current production includes music by Paula Bliss from the original,â&#x20AC;? says Golino. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bill Peters added music by composer Joann Goldwater. And now we have original music and sound effects by Shiloh Hellman, as well as some traditional Italian songs and music by Nina Rota, who was Felliniâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s composer.â&#x20AC;? Now, as the play returns home to the Central Coast, it does so with some innovations of its own. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I picked Pinocchio because I wanted to work with Stephanie,â&#x20AC;? says Terri Steinmann, artistic director at West End Theatre. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We just had to figure out how to handle the whale. Diane Marvin designed the original whale and has returned to create the new whale for our production. The result is very much a part of Stephanieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s physical theater background. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a huge â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;ahaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; moment in the play.â&#x20AC;? Additional actors in the West End production include Lori Rivera as Carloâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s landlady and Pinocchioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s employer. Salvadore Benavides plays Collodi, and Jaye Wolfe plays a villainous banker to whom Carlo is indebted. Fourteen additional actors round out the cast, most in dual roles straddling both worlds. Pinocchio & Carlo Collodi illustrates Golinoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s philosophy of art imitating life. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To me, this adaptation of Pinocchio has its own moral that goes beyond all the little cautionary tales already in the story,â&#x20AC;? says Golino. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how all these little events in your life can become the grist for your creative life. And itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about the creative process and how mistakes and unfortunate events can be spun into gold. You take a low moment in your life, like being in debt and fighting off creditors, add a little alchemy and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got yourself a beautiful story.â&#x20AC;?

Art Imitates Life Over the years, the play has taken on a life of its own. In addition to three previous productions in Santa Cruz County, The Ukiah Players Theatre produced it in 2009. Bill Peters, a professor of theater arts at San Francisco State University, also

spaces, not necessarily on a stage. The audience is called and led from scene to scene, changing the landscape for themselves. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so theatrical and so magical. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just go to a dark theater. I take a journey. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m always thinking about how I can influence that experience.â&#x20AC;? Golinoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s core artistry as a dancer and the focus on giving children experience in playwriting also influences Davisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s art. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The work I make is directly influenced by the whimsy Stephanie manages to project on the canvas of her plays,â&#x20AC;? said Davis. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She fuses the physical with the narrative so beautifully. My work has a very rigorous physical score thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rooted in my dance experience. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what makes me a different kind of director. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The most influential thing for me about training with Stephanie was when we would write our own scripts,â&#x20AC;? she adds. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It gave me experience in playwriting and choreography and responsibility for creating a whole performance. It taught us to be artists ourselves. On a personal level, emotionally as well as artistically, we needed her and it was really wonderful.â&#x20AC;?

Bassnectarâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Santa Cruz connection BY JUAN GUZMAN

On freaking freely: â&#x20AC;&#x153;When Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m in the studio in my boxers making music at four in the morning, I will get up and rage. I would dance so hard to â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Ping Pongâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; when I was making it, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d have to stop because my heart was bursting in my chest. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not performing, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not doing Janet Jackson dance moves or something, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m just letting go.â&#x20AC;?

When Lorin Ashton, better known by his stage name Bassnectar, performs at the Civic Auditorium on Thursday it will be a sort of homecoming. Since graduating, the UCSC alum has since gone on to become one of the biggest names in the electronic and digital music scene, but he remembers the city fondly as the place that nurtured his creative spirit. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I never wanted to leave Santa Cruz,â&#x20AC;? says Ashton. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was sort of like my coming of age. For me it was the perfect storm of friendliness mixed with creative and experimental people.â&#x20AC;? As a 19-year-old freshman he remembers his attraction to the community built around the rave scene. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I came here in 1996 I discovered electronic music and the rave scene,â&#x20AC;? he recalls. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With the university being pass/fail I felt the freedom to explore classes. My major was in Community Studies and my minor was in electronic music, which I think has defined my life.â&#x20AC;? For Ashton, community has continued to be an important theme in life. At every Bassnectar event $1 is donated to a charitable or community organization for each ticket sold. When in Santa Cruz the money goes to the Community Studies department, currently under attack due to the recent rash of extreme budget cuts. The civicminded DJ has also advocated for other causes like free press, net neutrality and ending corporate personhood. Still, he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think of himself as political

On the Gathering and Harmony parties at UCSC in the mid-â&#x20AC;&#x2122;90s: â&#x20AC;&#x153;I pretty quickly got swept away by the underground global psychedelic trance scene, and that was where I spent all of my time. We had a collective called the 13 Moon Tribe in Santa Cruz, and we would do free full moons every full moon. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d get a voicemail box just for that month and go hiking out into the woods to find a place and then leave directions on the voicemail, and 1000 people would show up in the middle of the night, and go â&#x20AC;&#x2122;til sunrise.â&#x20AC;?

HEAD BASS HEAD Bassnectar, a.k.a. Lorin Ashton, returns to Santa Cruz this week. in the conventional sense. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m more interested in humanistics and building community. I like encouraging and inspiring people to think outside the box.â&#x20AC;? The immediacy and viscerality of a Bassnectar gathering seems to be a logical extension of Ashtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s community-mindedness. In the crowd, boundaries between people melt away amid the power of the spectacle. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all about setting up multimedia art installations,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re setting up a show that is an independent event where we set up a customized atmosphere for the room and the people. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a really special chance to make something that is emotionally impactful.â&#x20AC;? The enormous popularity of Bassnectar and other electronic and dance music artists proves that people are responding to the new wave of electronic music with unprecedented enthusiasm. For Ashton itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an interesting turn of events. His early

years as a DJ were marked by an official crackdown on the rave scene, sending electronic music lovers to the hills, literally (see sidebar). He never expected the music he loved would explode into a worldwide phenomenon. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The first time I played [in Santa Cruz] I was afraid not enough people would come,â&#x20AC;? he remembers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But that show sold out, then we had to move to the Civic Auditorium, and now thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one of the smallest rooms on our entire tour. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re playing for 5,000 people in Knoxville, Tenn.â&#x20AC;? Electronic music, he says, has â&#x20AC;&#x153;hit so hard that I feel that now electronic music is as viable and credible a form of music as rock & roll.â&#x20AC;? Given its enormous popularity, the world, it seems, would agree.

Some more on freaking freely: â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think when people are at a Bassnectar show, there is an atmosphere of abandon that is also supported by an atmosphere of community. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do drugs, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a very health-conscious person. I went to school to become a guidance counselor. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a very positive, humanistic type of personality. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m trying to create an atmosphere where people are safe to go fucking buck wild and crazy for a couple hours. I guess I lead by example.â&#x20AC;? On the musical form heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s named â&#x20AC;&#x153;omnitempo maximalismâ&#x20AC;?: â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was finding something that essentially translated to no rules and no limitations,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Omnitempoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; means I can play at any and every tempo, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not constricted by that. And maximalism just means turn it upâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;just tons of it. Combine everything with everything. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hesitate, and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be burdened by other peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rules.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D;As told to Steve Palopoli

WHEN Robert Cray plays a wailing blues guitar solo onstage, he steps away from the mic, closes his eyes and moves his lips. Then he just gets lost in the sound. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m trying to play what comes to my head,â&#x20AC;? Cray tells Santa Cruz Weekly, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m talking. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really physical tooâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;shouting, and singing the lines that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m playing and trying to make it make sense.â&#x20AC;? In addition to his emotive guitar playing, Cray, a five-time Grammy winner, has a knack for singing R&B melodies so smooth they could bring Mr. T to tears. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Crayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ability to focus on more than one musical element at once that has, in many ways, defined his career. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m big into the R&B singers, and I love the blues guitar players,â&#x20AC;? he says. Cray plays the Rio on Saturday, May 5, ahead of the September release of his 21st album. Some songs on the as-yetunnamed collection will combine Crayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nascent interest in Latin rhythms with his tender voice and trademark blues licks. Since their inception, Cray and his band have pulled from influences like Robert Johnson, Howlinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Wolf, B.B. King (a lifelong idol) and the Beatles, who inspired Cray to buy his first guitar when he was 12. Various jazz and gospel groups also shaped the Robert Cray Band sound since the beginning in the 1970s. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We just played whatever we wanted to play,â&#x20AC;? Cray says, laughing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nowadays when you write songs, you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tell yourself what songs youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to

STILL CRAY AFTER ALL THESE YEARS Versatile blues player Robert Cray was inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame last year. write. You just write songs and let it come out as it may. It becomes your sound.â&#x20AC;? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a one-of-a-kind sound too, filled with interesting dualities that havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t gone unnoticed. In 2003 the New York Times called his voice â&#x20AC;&#x153;alternately smooth and craggy.â&#x20AC;? Guitar Player Magazine has lauded his ability to appeal to both blues and mainstream music fans. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cray, who obviously is respected in blues circles, is a press darling and crossover smash,â&#x20AC;? writer Dan Forte wrote. But if thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one thing that sets Cray apart, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s his ability to fuse sweet, bedroom-friendly R&B music with electric blues rock & roll. Cray can sing like Marvin Gaye or Al Green and still shred the guitar like Eric Clapton without starting a new tune. Younger music fans may be familiar with rocker Ben Harperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s talent for delving into folk, reggae, gospel and blues in each album. Cray covers all that within one chorus. He knows how to give a standard 12-bar blues song a soulful pop feel like he did in â&#x20AC;&#x153;Phone Booth,â&#x20AC;? off his

1983 album Bad Influence. Or he can bring blues elements to a soulful pop ballad as he did in 2003â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Time Makes Two.â&#x20AC;? Cray has even brought all those elements together to create new sound inventions, like in 1990â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s funk-infused â&#x20AC;&#x153;Consequences.â&#x20AC;? The 58-year-old, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pleased to have a strong following, hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t exactly slipped under the radar. Last year, Cray joined the Blues Hall of Fame, and he regularly jams with legends like B.B. King as well as legendary contemporaries like Buddy Guy and Clapton, for whom he often opened in the â&#x20AC;&#x2122;80s. It may seem strange, then, that the prolific artist isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even more wellknown (whereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the nod from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame?) or that he hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t altered the music scene in a more dramatic way. Why isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t everyone crooning like Green and simultaneously jamming like Claptonâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;or somehow else ripping off Clayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s style? Perhaps thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because no one has figured out how. Cray hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forgotten to keep an eye on his forefathers. In 2004 and

2007, he played at Claptonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Crossroads Guitar Festival, a benefit for addicts undergoing rehabilitation. There, he played alongside King, whose solos come across in brief spurts of emotional licks followed by musical rests. For Cray, there is always something to learn from following along with the master of vibratos and impeccable syncopation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;B.B. King can speak to you and not have to say a whole lot,â&#x20AC;? Cray says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He can say it just a few notes if he wants. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not always [about] the riff. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the space. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just getting your point across, and some people get their point across with a lot of words, and some people use just a few.â&#x20AC;? So â&#x20AC;Ś which are you? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m both,â&#x20AC;? Cray says with a quiet laugh. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It all depends on the song.â&#x20AC;?

Ramblinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; On 7iaOeBWJ[d]eWdoj^_d]Ă&#x2020;h[Wbbo BY LEILANI CLARK

D

Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t bother shouting out â&#x20AC;&#x153;Speeding Motorcycle!â&#x20AC;? when Yo La Tengo play the Rio on May 4. Though their appearance is billed as â&#x20AC;&#x153;freewheeling,â&#x20AC;? itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a request show, says multi-instrumentalist James McNew, who joined the endearing indie rock band in 1991 alongside Hoboken, N.J.â&#x20AC;&#x201C;based husband-and-wife team Ira Kaplan and Georgia Hubley. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kind of an acoustic show, but mostly itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a question-and-answer show,â&#x20AC;? says McNew by phone from Brooklyn. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The only thing we plan is what song weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll open with.â&#x20AC;? Freedom and spontaneity take over after that, with the band fielding questions from the audience. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll just sit there and stare at you until somebody asks a question,â&#x20AC;? says McNew. Nothingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s off limits, though the band might not answer everything in a completely forthcoming wayâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and then, he says, the songs will start. If asked, â&#x20AC;&#x153;What kind of car do you drive?â&#x20AC;? they might play an auto-related song (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Today Is the Day,â&#x20AC;? perhaps?); if asked where they stay while on the road, they might play one of their many covers (â&#x20AC;&#x153;A House Is Not a Motelâ&#x20AC;? from Loveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Forever Changes, or their own â&#x20AC;&#x153;From a Motel 6,â&#x20AC;? perhaps?). Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the kind of musical stunt thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s appreciated in these dark days when a lot of bands can barely squeeze out a â&#x20AC;&#x153;thank

youâ&#x20AC;? to the crowd, much less meaningful interaction. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel that it brings everyone closer,â&#x20AC;? says McNew, not a trace of sarcasm in his voice. So what does the band talk about when thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no audience around? After our interview, Yo La Tengoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s practice starts in a couple of hours; McNew says that he, Hubley and Kaplan will probably chat about the Knicks, and last nightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s amazing Aislers Set show. Then theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll get working on a score for filmmaker Sam Greenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s The Love Song of R. Buckminster Fuller, which the band was set to perform at the premiere on May 1 at SFMOMA. In true freewheeling style, what happens at a YLT practice depends on what they feel like doing, for the most partâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the perk of 20-plus years of adventurous, thoughtful musicology. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sometimes we just get together to mess around,â&#x20AC;? says McNew, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and sometimes we get together because we like it and we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have anything else to do, but really, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always something to work on.â&#x20AC;?

Reggae covers of classic rock tunes arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hard to come by. There are tributes and compilations to boot. But recent years have seen a rise in dub interpretations of classic albums; the Easy Star All-Stars hit it big with Dub Side of the Moon in 2003 and followed it up with Dubber Side of the Moon, Radiodread and Easy Starâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lonely Hearts Dub Band. Now, the Washington, D.C.â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and Baltimorebased band Yellow Dubmarine is taking a turn with a dubbed-out, horn- and rhythm-driven tribute to the Beatles. Moeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Alley; $10; 8:30pm. (Cat Johnson)

DJ Louie Culture (or, as heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s known by some of his fans, Mr. Gangalee) made his debut at Sunsplash in 1994 and has been gathering a steadily growing following ever since. The Jamaican native gets his nickname from a slang term meaning a bad or uncontrollable man, but he insists he has nothing but love for his fans and humanity. Whatever his disposition, he must be doing something right because the people keep coming back to his groovy dance-hall beats and mellow sound. Moeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Alley; $10 adv/$15 door; 9pm. ( Juan Guzman)

This Oakland-based trio blends old school charm with youthful energy. Their music mixes up rock, soul, bluegrass and folk in unique ways that evokes past greats like Simon & Garfunkel or Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young without sounding trite or derivative. A great example of their sound is the lead track from their eponymous debut, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Roll With the Times,â&#x20AC;? which begins with a bluegrassinspired vocal chant that gives way to a hard rock guitar riff. The whole thing is capped off with an organ solo that would be at home in a Wilson Pickett track. Crepe Place; $8; 9pm. (JG)

9@7A 23:;6=@AB Another talented product of the oftcelebrated Boston folk scene, Kris Delmhorst is a creator of catchy and thoughtfully crafted indie-rock/folk songs that reveal a woman of strength, tenderness and emotional openness. Equally adept at producing rich, layered tapestries of sound as she is at bringing a stripped-down, lo-fi tune to life, the multiinstrumentalist Delmhorst strikes the fine balance of being an insightful songwriter, a skilled musician and an engaging performer. Crepe Place; $10; 8pm. (CJ)

:/>:303 The righteous shadow of the late Joe Strummer looms imposingly over contemporary punk rock, but few do right by his considerable legacy. San Franciscoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s multilingual five-piece La Plebe are the exception, turning out anthemic punk that is instantly classic yet very much of our time. The band

has plenty of political and social grist to work with, focusing on workingclass concerns and the debate over immigration in songs that are as rousing as they are thoughtful. La Plebeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s latest release, Brazo En Brazo, finds the band honing its already realized sound into an incredibly potent weapon in the culture wars. Catalyst; $8 adv/$10 door; 9pm.

The Baghdad-born AlHaj is considered to be one of the greatest oud players currently living and performing in the world. He has garnered many accolades, including two Grammy nominations, for his collaborative efforts with performers like Bill Frisell and R.E.M. In 1991 he was exiled from his native Iraq for his activism against Saddam Husseinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s regime and currently resides in Albuquerque. His exile colors his compositions with the wistful overtone of someone who is still learning to come to terms with a new culture. Don Quixoteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s; $12 adv/$15 door; 7pm. ( JG)

@=A/<<31/A6 When Rosanne Cash was a teenager, her father, the legendary Johnny Cash, gave her a list of 100 essential country songs. At the time, Cash was undecided about whether she wanted to pursue a career in the music business. Apparently the list made an impression. Now, 40 years later, Cash has summitted the country music mountain. With 14 albums and 11 No. 1 singles to her name and a reputation for delivering finely-crafted songs full of rich imagery and a disarming honesty, Cash has proven herself an essential part of todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s country music scene.

VOX POPULI La Plebe does it for the people at the Catalyst Saturday.

Born and raised in Cuba, composer and pianist Omar Sosa makes music steeped in the Afro-Cuban tradition. But from that jumping-off point, Sosa stretches his sound way out by including elements of hip-hop, electronica, classical and experimental music. An adept improviser and musical innovator, Sosa is considered one of the greats of contemporary jazz, possessing what Alex Ross of the New Yorker calls â&#x20AC;&#x153;a ferocious flair for rhythm and a keen musical wit.â&#x20AC;?

HAPPY HENS Chef Katherine Stern in the chicken coop at La Posta.

Good Season

S

A>@7<50:=AA=;A/B:/>=AB/ The chickens are happy and squawking in their backyard territory. The kitchen herb garden is loaded with fragrance. And chef 9ObVS`W\SAbS`\â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seasonal menu sprouts beautiful plates of agnolotti with fava leaves and sugar snap peas, shaved asparagus salad with green garlic, and my new favoriteâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;tender potato gnocchi laced with fava beans, green shallots and wild nettles. Shavings of pecorino ignite all of these sparkling spring flavors. We paired this sweet deal ($16) with an antipasto of mixed house-cured meats, including a celestial duck prosciutto. These two dishes, with some sturdy sangiovese, made a delightful meal.

:/B30@3/97<5175/@3 For those of you whose only remaining complaint with :S1WUO`SD]ZO\b (formerly Cellar Door) is that you are â&#x20AC;&#x153;confinedâ&#x20AC;? to drinking 0]\\g2]]\DW\SgO`Ra wines, I have news that will quell your kvetching. @O\ROZZ5`OV[ showed me a new Vins de Terroir wine list this weekâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;soon to be available at the store and restaurantâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;showcasing wines of distinctive terroir and minerality from France, Italy, Germany, Spain and Australia, hand-selected by Grahm himself for inclusion on his previously all-Doon wine list. Prepare to expand your palates! Âľ=CBAB/<27<5Âś=CB5@=E7<5While still tinkering around in the kitchen at 5OP`WSZZO1OTS, chef/artist 8W[2S\SdO\ was planning his ambitious

program of bringing diners out into the fields where their food was grown. Teaming up with organic growers, purveyors, winemakers and food entrepreneurs, Denevan and his support team set up these â&#x20AC;&#x153;Outstanding in the Fieldâ&#x20AC;? dinners from coast to coast. And in 2011, the program expanded to include Hawaii, South America and Europe. Denevan, as some of us know, is also an eco-artist whose giant sand paintings enjoy a transitory existence and are inevitably swept out with the tide. Putting these two visual ideas togetherâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;dining in scenic alfresco locations, and beach artworkâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;0`O\RCA/â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s multi-million dollar ad campaign supporting U.S. tourism currently uses footage of both of Denevanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pet projects And if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re hungry for the firsthand dining encounter itself, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m told that there are still a few spots at the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Outstanding â&#x20AC;&#x153; table on June 11 at B][ObS`]4O`[ in Watsonville, and the ASO1]dS events on June 13 and 14. E7<3=4B63E339 Ghostwriter 2009 from Aptos Creek Vineyard. A luscious yet elegant Santa Cruz Mountains pinot noir, laced with enough tannins to support notes of sassafras, licorice, plums and minerals. 14 percent alcohol, $44, made by wunderkind 9S\\g:WYWb^`OY]\U.
