<=B67<5@/<2=; /0=CBB63 >/B@7/@16G I READ Traci Hukillâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s piece regarding the murder of Shannon Collins (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Random Acts,â&#x20AC;? Currents, May 16), and I strongly disagree with the people who regard this crime as â&#x20AC;&#x153;random.â&#x20AC;? Shannon Collins was murdered because she was a woman, and the motive for this crime is misogyny. Bullies are not random in their selection of targets, since I have yet to hear of some large, muscular male being attacked at random without a motive by another male. Men who do get attacked at random

tend to be men who appear physically and emotionally vulnerable and even â&#x20AC;&#x153;crazyâ&#x20AC;? males know not to attack men bigger and stronger than themselves most of the time. Now is the time for men of conscience to stand in solidarity with women and condemn this action as an expression of the women-hating patriarchal values that still infect the world in varying degrees, from Afghanistan all the way to liberal Santa Cruz. You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to be a perfect model of â&#x20AC;&#x153;political correctnessâ&#x20AC;? to do this, just open your heart to compassion for human suffering. I also would like to thank Santa Cruz Weekly for publishing Jen Sorensenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Slowpokeâ&#x20AC;? comic mocking the patriarchal bully Mitt Romney. Our whole society is

rooted in institutionalized violence, both through militarism and the economic system that profits from it, and we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need some self-styled â&#x20AC;&#x153;Latter-Day Saintâ&#x20AC;? to perpetuate this outmoded way of being. Erich J. Holden Santa Cruz

<=B67<5 /11723<B/: /0=CB67AB=@G MY GOODNESS, judging by the recent vitriolic ad hominem responses to the Thrive movie it seems to have really tweaked some local Progressives: take Aaron Cress (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Affront to Dignity,â&#x20AC;? Posts, May 16), for instance. This latest totally ad hominem rant accuses Foster Gamble of alleging â&#x20AC;&#x153;clandestine Jewish world dominationâ&#x20AC;?: Rockefeller, J.P. Morgan and Carnegie were Jewish? Who knew? Accusing anti-globalists of anti-Semitism is a common, and in this case completely unsupportable, tactic of globalist apologists or â&#x20AC;&#x153;deniers.â&#x20AC;? The detractors of Thrive have focused not on the ideas put forth, but on the persons expressing them. Example: G. Edward Griffin wrote The Creature From Jekyll Island, which was one of the first books exposing the true nature of the Federal Reserve banking system and the shady manner in which it was instituted; but he was also a member of the John Birch Society, which is supposed to completely discount anything he has to say about anything. And â&#x20AC;&#x153;right-wingersâ&#x20AC;? are accused of being â&#x20AC;&#x153;bigotsâ&#x20AC;?? (Sigh!) As far as the establishmentarian accidental theory of history that Mr. Cress espouses: no less a person than that icon of Progressivism, FDR, is quoted as having said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;In politics, nothing happens by accident. If it happens, you can bet it was planned that way.â&#x20AC;? Edgar Darwin Santa Cruz

WAITING GAME Clients wait outside the Homeless Services Center on River Street.

Shelter Skelter Santa Cruz sends a message to transients BY JACOB PIERCE

W

WHEN THE Shelter Projectâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Paul Brindel heard about the proposed changes for homeless services in the aftermath of the murder of 38-year-old Shannon Collins, one concern echoed through his head. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I hope that as a result of this horrible crime, homeless people will not find it so much harder to find legal, affordable shelter,â&#x20AC;? says Brindel, the Community Action Board president who will be retiring this year after 30 years of service. Brindel, like most people, was shocked by the stabbing allegedly carried out by San

Francisco transient Charles Anthony Edwards III, who spent four nights at the Paul Lee Loft, the part of the Homeless Services Center reserved for individuals. But Brindel calls the incident â&#x20AC;&#x153;a law enforcement issue and a mental health issue,â&#x20AC;? not a â&#x20AC;&#x153;homeless issue,â&#x20AC;? and worries about a community backlash. Last week, three members of Santa Cruz City Council proposed a new eight-point list of suggestions, including a provision barring any new homeless facilities. That particular suggestion is a step Brindel is calling unnecessaryâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;especially considering the data shows the majority of Santa Cruz Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

homeless population is from the area. But the councilmembers say changing local homeless peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s access to services is not the goal. Councilmember Ryan Coonerty, who outlined the proposals along with Vice Mayor Hilary Bryant and Councilmember Lynn Robinson, says the city already serves more than its fair share of the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s homeless. He says the city is stretched too thin to dream of putting in new shelters. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The city of Santa Cruz has far and away the most facilities in the county, which has an impact between the jail, the Homeless Services Center, Emeline [Avenue clinics] and a number of other smaller facilities,â&#x20AC;? Coonerty says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We think the other jurisdictions need to share in both the location and cost of these facilities.â&#x20AC;? Not all of the new proposals affect homeless shelters. Other items on the list include expanding a program that provides bus fare to send transients where they have family or support and asking the county jail to return prisoners to their communities of origin. Other proposals would ensure a closer relationship between shelters and police. Homeless Services Center board member Claudia Brown says the shelter was already moving in this direction. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These ideas are, as far as Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m concerned, really good,â&#x20AC;? Brown says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re things we had been working on anyway. We want to keep our campers and the city as safe as possible because we are serving some of the most vulnerable people in the county.â&#x20AC;? Councilmember Katherine Beiers, who also serves on the board, says all of the proposals are fine but says the rule barring any new facilities is an odd one, even if the city doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the funds right now to put up a new facility. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If someone came in and said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We have the land and the money, we want to build a family shelter,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; I would accept that,â&#x20AC;? Beiers says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Just to draw that line I find a little bit onerous.â&#x20AC;?

According to the Homeless Census and Survey, there were 2,771 homeless people in Santa Cruz County as of early 2011. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a 22 percent increase over the previous homeless census, done two years earlier. According to the same report, 67 percent of the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s homeless population lived in Santa Cruz County before becoming homeless, a 5 percent increase over 2009. One source of contention is whether or not that 67 percent figure, representing homeless locals, is really such a significant chunk of the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s homeless population. Coonerty says supporting the homeless when even a third of the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s homeless population comes from out of town can pose a difficult burden for the city. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A third of 3,000 peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s is 1,000 people,â&#x20AC;? Coonerty says, citing the report. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of people for a city the size of 58,000.â&#x20AC;? Brindel, who served on a statewide committee called Housing California in the 1990s, sees it differently. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always been an issue because every community I know of always thought they had more than their fair share of homeless people,â&#x20AC;? he says. City councilmembers and the Homeless Services Center board members agree that these provisions are all in the name of public safetyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; both for the homeless population and for the greater community. Monica Martinez, executive director for Homeless Services Center, who worked with councilmembers on the new proposals unveiled last week, says the provisions are only part of the battle to build a better city. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are all committed to making a safe, healthy and vibrant community,â&#x20AC;? says Martinez. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These policies are tactics that may help us achieve these goals. But I want to be clear that these are just strategies. They will not help us address the root problem of homelessness.â&#x20AC;?0

HAPPY AND HEALTHY Jennifer Heskett Yamaguchi says she felt a strong tug toward San

Rejuvenated A cancer diagnosis prompts a life overhaul BY MARIA GRUSAUSKAS

L

LESS THAN three years ago, Jennifer Heskett Yamaguchi laid on an examination table in Tucson and watched the monitor as a urologist sent a camera into her bladder. What she saw turned her world upside down: more than 20 cancerous tumorsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;too many to even countâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;taking over the right side of her bladder. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I remember it clearly. I just couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe it,â&#x20AC;? says Yamaguchi, sitting in a crowded coffee shop

one foggy morning in Aptos. The 33-year-old mother of two has long hair and glowing skin. She wears a leather jacket over her dress and rocks the lean, fit body shape you would never guess in a million years to be diagnosed with a disease most common in people in their 60s and 70s. The two weeks that followed her diagnosis are a blur in Yamaguchiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s memory. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t talk to anyone. I was


9

terrified. I thought that I was going to die, and that I was going to leave my kids and that my husband was going to have to marry someone else,â&#x20AC;? says Yamaguchi. But that state she describes as â&#x20AC;&#x153;so much sorrow and painâ&#x20AC;? couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t last forever. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just started, you know, pulling myself out of it, and getting that gumption to fight.â&#x20AC;? Undergoing surgery and chemo every three months, the alwaysathletic Yamaguchi began exercising more. But still, the cancer kept coming back, while a certain pull towards Santa Cruz kept growing stronger. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I needed to be near the ocean and redwoods. I needed to be around healthy food, a more alternative lifestyle,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So we just decided to come home. And itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s changed my life. Cancerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s changed my life. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s made it better,â&#x20AC;?

nta Cruz after her diagnosis.

she says. From the look on my face, she knows what sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just said, and she couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be any more sure. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel limitless. I really understand that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m the only person that can hold myself back in this world,â&#x20AC;? says Yamaguchi. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s almost like I shed an old skin, sort of had a rebirth.â&#x20AC;? After her diagnosis, Yamaguchi began drinking water all of the time. She cut out most animal proteins, though she occasionally eats buffalo and other free-range meats. She also started staying away from anything containing chemicals. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t swim in pools that have chlorine. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m very, very conscientious about what I put in my body,â&#x20AC;? says Yamaguchi. I ask her what new activities sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been immersing herself in. The answer comes: Surfing, tai chi, running in the forest, acupuncture, playing the guitar. Her eyes are wide with passion. In Santa Cruz, Yamaguchi says she also found the Western doctor sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d been looking for. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He is incredible. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kind, and he spends time with me and he looks at me in my face, and you can tell he wants me to get better. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not just another patient thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s come in the door.â&#x20AC;? On a spiritual level, Yamaguchi says sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a different person entirely. Where before she was more apt to wait for life to come to her, now sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more apt to grab life by the reins and dig a spur in. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of times I think we just get stuck, just fall off the wave and keep crashing, and we canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get ourselves back up because weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not living in the moment and we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let all those good things roll in. And itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easier to do that now,â&#x20AC;? says Yamaguchi. This past January, after eight surgeries (including one at Stanford that accidentally punctured her bladder), Yamaguchi got a call from her doctor on a Saturday that she no longer had any cancer cells in her bladder. She had been in Santa Cruz for seven months. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I never felt more at home in my life,â&#x20AC;? says Yamaguchi. 0

When youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re sickâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;well, sick and tiredâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a day at a mountain swimming hole can put everything right BY JACOB PIERCE

T

A>:7A6A>:/A6 Laine Otto, chillinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; at the Junction.

Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nothing quite like swimming in the redwoods. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more liberating than swimming in a normal

pool and less unsettling than treading water in the open ocean. There are no Great Whites in the San Lorenzo River, and the biggest risks are getting poison oak on your way there or maybe stubbing your toe. And even at its chilliest, the water is never as cold as the ocean is around these parts.

Junction Park

The cliff at this popular swimming hole, located off Highway 9 in â&#x20AC;&#x153;absurdly ruralâ&#x20AC;? Boulder Creek (thanks, Sunset Magazine!), offers some of the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best cannonball opportunities. People of all ages gather here with beach towels and lawn chairs. Some of them swim

across to jump off the cliff, which has perches more than 10 feet high, while others bring books and magazines to read in the sun. The mountain spring water stays pretty cool year-round, making it the perfect destination on a hot Santa Cruz Mountains summer day. Drying off after a recent day in

the water, 9-year-old Laine Otto said he had an exciting time leaping off some of the cliff â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lower ledges, even though the frigid water worried him at first. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was afraid about going in,â&#x20AC;? says Otto. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I jumped it was cold, but I thought: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Oh my Gosh, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m in water that isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a pool!â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;?

SWIMMING HOLES

Alongside the river is a sandy, sunny beach with shaded forested areas on either side. And up the stairs by the parking lot is a grass lawn with a barbecue where reservations can be made at 831.338.4144. Who says thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nothing to do in the Valley? 9^gZXi^dch/ From Santa Cruz drive 11.5 miles up Highway 9 through downtown Boulder Creek. Turn right at Middleton Ave. Drive 250 feet until you come to a sharp right-hand bend in the street and a parking lot. For more information visit www. bcrpd.org.

Garden of Eden Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a very steep walk down a dirt path to Santa Cruzâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most famous swimming hole, but the descent pays off when swimmers reach the rocky beach deep in the towering forest of Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park. This sceneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s curious river bends, gentle currents and lush redwood curtains overhead make the place deserving of its name. It even kind of looks like a biblical illustration of Adam and Eveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first home. I have

yet to spot the pair myself, but the garden does bring in preâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;fig-leaf imitatorsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;this Eden is a favorite hangout spot for local nudists. Aside from weird naked people, there are only two minor reasons not to fall head over heels in love with this place. First of all, the water here isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t as deep as in other spots on the river. And it isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the warmest spot, either, on account of the cliffs and tall trees shielding the sun and the rest of the world, too. 9^gZXi^dch/ From Santa Cruz drive 3 miles up Highway 9 and park in the small lot near two metal gates. (If you reach the Toll House Resort, turn around because youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve gone too far. Or just give up and grab an ale at Montyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Log Cabin in Felton.) Enter at the more southern gate and follow it downhill, veering right toward the railroad tracks. Turn right at the tracks and follow them until you reach a brown â&#x20AC;&#x153;no campfireâ&#x20AC;? sign, where youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll turn left.

group before. We watch them watching us, and I giggle uncontrollably at how adorable they are. We paddle farther out and watch the surfers on the Lane, and one of the guides paddles out to catch a wave. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m feeling fairly confident about my ability to follow suit, but one of the other guides distracts me by attempting to do yoga on her board. I hold my breath as she moved from Eagle to Tree pose, looking a little like a drunk flamingo on one leg. She loses balance and falls in, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m impressed. Now thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something to work up to! I go home exhilarated and exhausted. The beauty and fun have distracted me from the workoutâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s toll on the rest of my body, but I feel it now in my arms, core and lower body. More than anything, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m just happy Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve found a way to spend an afternoon in the ocean.

@=E@=E@=EG=C@0=/@2 Stand-up paddle works the core muscles but, unlike pilates, doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hurt.

Newbie Confessions Isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t it time you tried something new? A day stolen away from work (see â&#x20AC;&#x153;Excuses,â&#x20AC;? page 19) is a perfect time to try a new sport, especially since lessons are more readily available on short notice during the week. Following are firsthand accounts from stand-up paddle, disc golf, surfing and rock climbing virgins to help you decide which sport to tackle first.

Stand-Up Gal by Lily Stoicheff Although Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve lived in Santa Cruz for the last five years, unless itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a fogless, 80-plusâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;degree day,

itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unlikely youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll find me in the water. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll dive in on particularly hot summer days if the waves are looking friendly, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not a strong swimmer. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m the kind who watches the surfers out on Steamer Lane and marvels longingly at their athleticism, but surfing has always looked too physically (and mentally) challenging for me. So I content myself with being a sun-soaking landlubber. And then one evening, while walking out on West Cliff with a friend, I spot a figure gliding across the bay, standing on what looks like a surf board and maneuvering with a long paddle. It looks so peaceful. My

friend identifies the sport as stand-up paddleboarding, and says sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gone out before and loved it. I decide to swallow my misgivings about being on the water and give it a try. The guides at Venture Quest, a company that rents out kayaks and SUPs from the Santa Cruz Wharf, agree to take me out. After zipping me into a wetsuit, handing me a paddle almost as tall as I am and soothing my nerves, they hold a large, wide, sturdy-looking board steady for me at the edge of the dock. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m instructed to stay on my knees until I feel comfortable enough to stand. I slowly start to stand up and am immediately surprised at how easily Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m able to balance on the board. I dip my paddle into the water and begin rowing as I would a canoe.

Discs of Glory by Jacob Pierce Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sunday afternoon, and Asa Maestas, a Soquel High School junior, is standing on a concrete tee at De Laveaga Disc Golf Courseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fourth hole teaching a noviceâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;meâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;how to play. Maestas instructs me to throw â&#x20AC;&#x153;nip to nip,â&#x20AC;? demonstrating as he pulls his disc horizontally across his chest and extends it out toward our target, a metal basket that appears to be several light years away. Maestas and three of his teammates from the Soquel High School Disc Golf Club are out for a weekend of exercise and smack-talk. Jealous of his â&#x20AC;&#x153;arm like a cannon,â&#x20AC;? ¨ $

47<34=:47<54=@; A disc golfer at De Laveaga gets into the fling of things.

Maestasâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; teammates have nicknamed him â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ace-Holeâ&#x20AC;? for his affinity for getting to the basket in one shot. Maestas & Co. are more than willing to help me flail my arms in a more efficient manner rather than let me look like an orangutan at a basketball game. To hear Lukas Prince tell it, the sport, a full-body exercise, is a little bit like dancing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all in the hips. To get distance, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to want to throw with your whole body and turn,â&#x20AC;? Prince says, demonstrating in slow motion. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Snap your wrist at the end of it if you can, too.â&#x20AC;? These high schoolers have a knack for explaining every element of their sport, from the driveâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;wind up, keep your hand flat and throw to the right of your targetâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;to the final putt: arm out straight, snap wrist and toss. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;just like serving up a pizza,â&#x20AC;? says Fabiano Hale, who often has food on the brain. The day is more challenging than Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been expecting, and the combination of lobbing plastic discs and hiking makes for fun and scenic exercise. The De Laveaga Disc Golf course, which opened in 1984, is world famous. It was ranked number 40 on DG Course Reviewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website and last year hosted the PDGA World Championship. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also the site of the annual Masters Cup, held last weekend (May 18-20).

At 27 holes as opposed to 18, De Laveaga is a long course. Its length, difficulty and diversity of shots are all part of what makes it so popular. Maestas loses two discs before the day is through. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a hard, hard course, even if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re really good,â&#x20AC;? Prince says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It has a combination of hill shots, open meadow shots, canyon shots, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t-go-right, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t-go-left. You have puddles. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s everything up here.â&#x20AC;? With a final hole stretching almost two football fields and descending 100 feet in altitude, the course can easily take a small group four hours to finish. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s probably one of the only qualms a growing teenager might have about coming here. Hale, who looks like he has the metabolism of a thoroughbred horse, notices it taking a toll just before the 20th hole. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is the longest course in Santa Cruz,â&#x20AC;? he says, resting on a bench and gazing out over the hole, blinking slowly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I always forget to bring food. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the worst.â&#x20AC;?

Surfer Adrift by Garrett McAuliffe My two most vivid memories of the ocean: being bashed in the surf at 7, an intimate introduction as sand scraped half the flesh from my left shoulder. Six years later an undertow


17

I paddle ferociously, then meekly, then â&#x20AC;Ś bang. The tip goes under. My world collapses, then disintegrates in a million tiny, pummeling bubbles. From the shore, surfing didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem particularly freeing or playful either. It was a discipline and dedication, a siren inciting absolute devotion. I would see them as I drove the cliffs, black dots sprinkled in the ocean, bobbing just past the break. In a way I did not pretend to understand, these people had access to the sea, and maybe more. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve lived in Surf City nearly a year now. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about time I gave surfing a try. It began as a giddy ride on a sobering, gray day. Most had suggested I learn on a longboard. But in my friendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mind, longboarding did not amount to surfing. So, with his five-foot board tucked under my arm, I stepped out at Pleasure Pointâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 26th Avenue. A few dozen

beachgoers frolicked in the sand. Parents sat bundled in blankets. Children in bright swimsuits bumped into each other. As I zipped up my wetsuit, I watched a 4-year-old running along the shore, tiny plastic shovel in hand. The boy was silhouetted against the seaâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;what looked a monstrous, slowtumbling crush ready to swallow him whole. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Coouuntryâ&#x20AC;? came bucking up out of a boombox behind me, meekly disputing the oceanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rumblings. Footballs and Frisbees flew by. There was talk of recent weddings and upcoming playoff games. People chatted, laughed at bad jokes. But the ocean was right there, adversarial and intoxicating. My friend taught me the run-in. You have to propel yourself into the sea, break like a wave. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a necessary transition, a conscious resolve. Abandoning the security of solid ground, you must quit your foundation and lose some sense of yourself. Beyond that, he simply told me, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Paddle like hell, then try to stand up in one fluid motion.â&#x20AC;? Suddenly Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m swaddled in seaweed. Disconnected from the landâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;that happy-go-lucky, bash-free zone off in the distance. The sun is a dirty dumpling behind thick clouds. The ocean is black and green, and on the brink of frothing. I paddle ferociously, then meekly, all of it seeming futile as the wave draws back, then â&#x20AC;Ś bang. Not fluid enough. The tip goes under. My world collapses, then disintegrates in a million tiny, pummeling bubbles. No one said it would be easy. But a taste for the sublime is a greed like any other. I paddle back out. The wind is cool, moist and scented with salt. I float in the cold, looking for pearls and shipwrecks. I see the fat point of my board bobbing, pointing at that wide arc of horizon. These are moments at ease and awed. But soon it is time to try another wave. Oh bother. Actual surfing feels like a chore. I am deeply satisfied to stay adrift. I feel like maybe I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t gotten the point. But here we go. A seagull screams. And then my breath. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a sensation ¨ &

dragged me out. Kicking and screaming for my life, I eventually dragged myself back in. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d long since decided I preferred my water fresh and placid rather than tubular. Surfing seemed like such an insular culture anyway. I had visions of sun-bleached stoners spouting spaced-out mantras, turf wars and chiller-than-thou vibes.

We eventually head for home, exhausted, waterlogged, saturated with salt and elation. My arms are shaking. A primal force sloshes around in my cells. I never truly caught a wave. Maybe I never will.

Rock Steady by Traci Hukill We gather in the parking lot at Castle Rock State Park, six people ranging in age from mid-twenties to

mid-forties, here to learn the art and science of rock climbing courtesy Santa Cruzâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;based Treks & Tracks. Before we set off on the 20-minute hike to the site, our guide Daniel Laggner, who has a shock of curly sun-streaked hair and forearms like Popeyeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, warns us about what may be the greatest actual threat we face all day: poison oak. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Leaves of three, let it be,â&#x20AC;? he instructs us. After a short walk through mixed forest we arrive at our classroom, a small patch of level ground at the base of a sandstone cliff. Two groups are already here. Five ropes, including the one weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be using, snake over the top of the rock 60 feet above us and coil loosely on the ground. Laggner assures us that he has secured our rope earlier this morning to bolts and trees in such a way that failure is virtually impossible. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You could hang a bus off this rope,â&#x20AC;? he says with a grin. We don our helmets and our funny-looking harnesses, which fit around the waist and each thigh, and get our basic lesson in belaying. The belayerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s job is to take up the slack in the rope so that if and when the climber on the other end of it falls, he or she wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a) crash into the rock and get hurt or b) put undue strain on the rope and equipment by â&#x20AC;&#x153;shock loadingâ&#x20AC;? it.


Belaying, we are shocked to learn, is actually strenuous, what with the responsibility for a human life and all, plus the constant pulling on the rope and the peering up. It makes your neck hurt. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s real nice to have a belayer backing you up when itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s your turn to climb. Two by two we approach the rock, one belaying while the other starts climbing. Between the nubby surface of the rock and a big crack running up the first 15 feet, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty good going at first. The grippy climbing shoes help. But after the crack ends, hand and footholds are harder to come by. I find myself scanning the surface of the rock in every direction, looking for cracks or protuberances of any kind. Laggner calls out advice and encouragement, but no one else but you can move your left foot to an infinitesimal bulge in the rock and then make you put all your weight on it and lunge for a handhold you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t quite see. Muscles strain from awkward positions. If the fatigue doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get you, the fear of heights will. The students cheer each other on. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to watch another human being suffer, but that seems to be a big part of rock climbing: standing helplessly by while, far overhead, a sweating companion clings to the granite, scratching for a way out of a jam. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all of us suckers eventually, on the rock or in life. In fact thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the draw, Laggner says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a cycle of getting stuck, either physically or mentally, and then breaking through the barrier,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It keeps you coming back.â&#x20AC;?

Big Rock Hole Surrounded by redwood panoramas out of an Ansel Adams photograph, this picturesque island has plenty of space for a picnic. It could also be deemed the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Student Garden of Edenâ&#x20AC;? or the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fake Garden of Edenâ&#x20AC;? for its popularity and mistaken identity within the UCSC crowd, who confuse it with the other spot. (This one is slightly closer to campusâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;better for lazy college students.) Although it appears less breathtaking than the real Eden, Big Rock Hole is all about recreation. A rope swing tied to a tree lets people practice their f lips and cannonballs, and a large rock to the left provides a warm place to dry off. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll sometimes see a tequila bottle or can of Natural Ice chilling in the frigid water, waiting for some fraternity boy to drink itâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;illegal, yes (but so is being buck nekkid). It basically comes with territory. The â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fake Garden of Edenâ&#x20AC;? has more rowdy partiers and fewer nudists than the real one. Tradeoffs abound. Take your pick. 9^gZXi^dch/ Drive 1 mile up Highway 9 and park at Henry Cowellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s biggest free parking lot, a large dirt turnout on the right. Walk downhill past the gate, cross the railroad tracks and descend down Rincon Fire Road. There will be two river crossingsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;each involves tiptoeing across river rocks or wading through. Then youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re on the island. Follow the trail until you reach a spot where the water is wide, the river is deep, and people scream â&#x20AC;&#x153;Geronimo!â&#x20AC;? as they soar into the San Lorenzo. Also accessible from UCSC and Pogonip.

Highlands Park Behind the soccer field and jungle gym of Ben Lomondâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Highlands Park is a system of trails, a picnic area, and a small waterfall. One of the most accessible soaking spots in

the county, Highlands has water not quite deep enough to swim inâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;it comes to about waist-levelâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plenty good for wading and splashing around. People whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been here know itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the perfect place to bring the kids, a dog or a really short date. 9^gZXi^dch/ Drive 7 miles up Highway 9 and turn right at the large brown sign with yellow lettering for Highlands Park. If you reach Jayeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Timberline Resort or downtown Ben Lomond, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve gone too far. (Yes, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a dive bar in Ben Lomond. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s called Henflingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, but really you should just turn around.) For more information visit http:// www.scparks.com.

Trout Farm Inn Anyone who recalls the rowdy days of the Trout Farm Innâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pool and patio should consult the restaurantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s updated rules, listed on its website: no foul language or running at the pool; and no getting â&#x20AC;&#x153;trashedâ&#x20AC;? either. Not even any â&#x20AC;&#x153;droopy pants that show your underwear in the restaurant.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;It used to be a free-for-all out here,â&#x20AC;? says Kelly McGuire, who purchased the Zayante Road restaurant last year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s much more family friendly.â&#x20AC;? McGuire, who calls this â&#x20AC;&#x153;the jewel of the San Lorenzo Valley,â&#x20AC;? hopes to bring trout fishing back this summer and has announced six upcoming concerts, including Eagles and Jimmy Buffett tribute bands. 9^gZXi^dch/7701 E. Zayante Road, Felton. From Santa Cruz take Graham Hill Road to Felton and turn right on East Zayante Road. Follow it for 1.4 miles.

@WQVO`R;Q:O`S\

The Doobie Brothersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Pat Simmons talks about surfing, Tom Scribner and his house on Vine Hill Road

T

BY DAN PULCRANO

THE SELECTION of the Doobie Brothers as this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Santa Cruz Blues Festival headliner is an inspired choice, both because of the bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s deep connections to Santa Cruz and because theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in their fifth decade of commercializing a sound thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rooted in the blues and American roots music. At least four Doobie Brothers members have lived in the Santa Cruz area; the bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s longtime producer, Ted Templeman, grew up and began his musical career here, and its most recognizable member lived in Santa Cruz County when the Doobies achieved superstardom. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I used to spend all my weekends in Santa Cruz,â&#x20AC;? says guitarist and singer-songwriter Pat Simmons, who grew up on the west side of San Jose. â&#x20AC;&#x153;By the time I was 12 or 13, I would find a way to get over to the coast and surf any time I could. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I used to go down to United Cigar, which had the best magazine rack in Northern California. They had just about every magazine published.â&#x20AC;?

FAMILY GUYS The Doobie Brothers play the 20th BluesFest this Saturday. Pat Simmons is wearing the hat. John McFee, left, was born in Santa Cruz. He remembers Tom Scribner sitting on the mall playing his saw. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I used to play with him,â&#x20AC;? he recalls. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I loved the redwoods, and I loved the beach. When I got into cycling, I enjoyed riding in the Santa Cruz Mountains. Riding a motorcycle in Californiaâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get much better.â&#x20AC;? Attracted by Santa Cruzâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;magical sunâ&#x20AC;? and what he describes as its progressive/ libertarian tolerance, Simmons bought â&#x20AC;&#x153;a funky old farm houseâ&#x20AC;? off Vine Hill Road near the Santa Cruz Mountains summit around

1976. He lived there until the end of the 1980s, when he moved to Mendocino County and later to Hawaii, where he lives with his family today. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was just a great place to live,â&#x20AC;? Simmons says about Santa Cruz. By the time Simmons had bought the farmhouse on Vine Hill, four of the Doobie Brothersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; six albums had gone platinum and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d become the bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leader following Tom Johnstonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s departure in 1975. One of the biggest rock stars of that era, Simmons cut an unmistakable figure as he rode into

town on a Harley to run errands, a low-key, lean figure in jeans with hair to his belt line. The bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fame grew with the release of the 1978 triple-platinum Minute by Minute, which contained the hit â&#x20AC;&#x153;What a Fool Believesâ&#x20AC;? and dominated the 1980 Grammy awards. In 1979, Simmons recruited Santa Cruz sax player Cornelius Bumpus to join the Doobie Brothers. Bumpus had two years earlier fronted a Moby Grape reunion with Jerry Miller and Skip ¨

Spence at the Crossroads Club in the Sash Mill and could frequently be seen playing his sax on the sidewalk in front of the Cooper House on Pacific Avenue, where Don McCaslinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Warmth was the house band. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I met him on the street,â&#x20AC;? Simmons says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I walked up to him and said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to be Cornelius.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Longtime Doobie Brothers bass player Tiran Porter lived in the hills by the summit as well. Porter left the Doobie Brothers in 1980 but can be seen today playing with Santa Cruzâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s White Album Ensemble with Dale Ockerman, who spent eight years in a later incarnation of the Doobie Brothers. After dispersing from San Jose in the early 1970s, the Doobie Brothers became a trans-California band with members living from Lake County to Los Angeles. So, while no locale could lay exclusive claim during the bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ascent to superstardom, any paternity test would find Santa Cruz DNA to be a pretty generous part of the mix. In the spring of 1981, Simmons opened a vintage motorcycle shop on Mission Street, where Ristorante Avanti stands today. He operated it with Bill Craddock, author of the seminal psychedelic â&#x20AC;&#x2122;60s classic Be Not Content. Simmons and Craddock, who lived in Simmonsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; guest house and died in 2004, rang up purchases and talked about the collection of immaculately restored Harleys and Indians for anyone who showed interest. The Doobie Brothers broke up in 1982 when Simmons, the bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sole surviving original member, decided to leave. Bassist Porter says the break occurred over the divergence between Simmonsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; guitar picking style and Michael McDonaldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s soft soul sound. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The direction of each one was vastly different from the other. There werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t so much creative clashes so much as â&#x20AC;Ś it was just the output of two different writers,â&#x20AC;? Porter told me in an interview in the 1980s. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d say after Minute by Minute, Michael was sort of taken aside by Ted [Templeman] and told he was a

genius and Ted and Michael became one faction against Pat and the rest of us.â&#x20AC;? After leaving the Doobies, Simmons recorded a solo album and formed Skin Suit, which played at the Crowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Nest and other local venues. In 1987, drummer Keith Knudsen organized a reunion benefit concert to support a veteransâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; charity. At the time, Simmons said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I kind of doubt that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll do anything beyond this.â&#x20AC;? The pairing of Simmons and Johnston worked well, however, and the band reunited. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been playing together continuously for more than two decades now. With the death of drummer Michael Hossack in March, the core band is now down to three members and includes Santa Cruzâ&#x20AC;&#x201C; born steel guitarist John McFee, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s legendary for his guitar work on Elvis Costelloâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Allison.â&#x20AC;? Simmons says the Santa Cruz Blues Festival performance will likely include both new and old material like the bluesy â&#x20AC;&#x153;Long Train Runningâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;South City Midnight Lady.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our music is based around the blues,â&#x20AC;? he says. Simmons isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sure whether theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll play â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nealâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Fandango,â&#x20AC;? a tribute to Beat-era icon Neal Cassady. If it makes it into the set, the lyrics will surely draw cheers from the crowd: Goinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; back, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m too tired to roam, Loma Prieta my mountain home On the hills above Santa Cruz, to the place where I spent my youth â&#x20AC;&#x153;Really, I wrote it about me,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It parallels my life and his life.â&#x20AC;?

SOME local classical music presenters, both traditional and new, seem to struggle for audiences and financial support. Yet, others f lourish. Imagine a formula that would impart equal success to all such worthies. Likewise, imagine a formula that would deliver the promised â&#x20AC;&#x153;unlimitedâ&#x20AC;? energy of controlled nuclear fusion. To find unlimited energy, one need look no further than artistic vision that drives, for example, Cadenza, the ensemble Maya Barsacq launched in 2006 under the name Santa Cruz Chamber Orchestra. Already known for its â&#x20AC;&#x153;more dynamic programming,â&#x20AC;? the renamed orchestra places new emphasis on the talents and virtuosity of the individual players. These musicians come from all over the Bay Area because, as Barsacq explains it, â&#x20AC;&#x153;They are hungry for opportunities to play in Santa Cruz.â&#x20AC;? So far, Cadenzaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reputation has grown by word of mouth. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never held auditions,â&#x20AC;? she says with no small pride. Barsacq is descended from a dynasty of French artistic authority: her grandfather, AndrĂŠ Barsacq, was a famous theater producer/ designer/director in Paris; her maternal grandmother was a niece of Leon Bakst, the set and costume designer for Sergei Diaghilevâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ballets Russes. With her mother as musical inspiration, Barsacq became an accomplished singer. UCâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Santa Cruz enticed her in 1990 to study

THE OTHER BARD Soprano Rochelle Bard sings Rachmaninoff with Cadenza this Sunday. biochemistry. There, she continued her vocal studies with Patrice Maginnis and Brian Staufenbiel, then fell in love with literature, the field in which she took her undergrad degree. Someone planted the idea of conducting. Soon this polymath fell in with conductors Michel Singher and Barbara Day Turner in the South Bay, and studied with Nicole Paiement at UC. Though she graduated in 1993, Barsacq continued to develop her skills within the universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s extensive music faculty and resources. Most recently, she has worked with the highly respected George Cleve. (Cleve, she was surprised to discover, was a pupil of Pierre Monteux, Diaghilevâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ballets Russes conductor in Paris.) Barsacq says she loves the challenge and process of working with musicians and composers. She has offered local premieres, including some obscure incidental music by Poulenc and Milhaud composed for some of her grandfatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s theater productions. She has introduced recent works from republics of the former Soviet Union, including the U.S. premiere of Latvian composer Peteris Vasksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Viatore, in 2008. Cadenzaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s program for this

Sunday, titled â&#x20AC;&#x153;Love and Romance,â&#x20AC;? includes Tchaikovskyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s muchloved Serenade for Strings, the U.S. premiere of Canarian Vespers by Israeli composer Noam Sheriff, and five Rachmaninoff songs for which Barsacq made string arrangements of the piano originals. Sheriff â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work, for solo viola and strings, was composed for a festival in the Canary Islands, but actually ref lects on the ongoing conf licts between Israelis and Palestinians. It features Cadenza violist Chad Kaltinger. Soprano Rochelle Bard rejoins Cadenza for the Rachmaninoff. Starting with the 2012-2013 season, Barsacq and Cadenza will perform in both Santa Cruz and San Francisco. The orchestra will swell to some 30 players for a Mozart piano concerto, and the season will include John Harbisonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Flute Concerto. A special collaboration with cellist/ composer Joan Jeanrenaud is also in the works.

JUST DO IT Author Chris Guillebeau says too many people with good ideas wait too long to act on them.

:3B¸A53B7BAB/@B32 YOUR career path is dead. Save yourself. Such is the underlying premise of Chris Guillebeauâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new book The $100 Startup, a rallying cry to scrappy entrepreneurship. Yes, job security and pensions have evaporated, but Guillebeau consoles us with the idea that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re actually in charge. The subtitle says it all: Reinvent the Way You Make a Living, Do What You Love, and Create a New Future. Guillebeau, who speaks at MAH on May 30 as part of the NextSpaceâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;sponsored Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Next lecture series, even gives us the formula: take a passion of yours, figure out where it converges with what other people want and find a way to give it to them in exchange for money. Oh, and start now. No need to wait for venture capital or the perfect showroom or whatever. Just get started. Guilleabeauâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exhaustive researchâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;he interviewed 1,500 entrepreneurs who started with little or no capitalâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;allows him to illustrate these precepts, along with other lessons in what works and what doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, with real-life examples of people who bootstrapped themselves into work they enjoy and that supports them. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the sales guy who got walked out of his office with a cardboard box and started a mattress company out of a mothballed car dealership based on extra inventory a friend needed to get rid of. There are the designers who, bored with their jobs, started making custom maps in their spare time and are now in business. Guillebeau gets down to the nitty-gritty of how other people did it and how we can too. All we have to do, he says, is start. (Traci Hukill)

JAMES FARM

HOWLINâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; RAIN

CHINA CATS

Collaborations and supergroups are nothing new in jazz. The genre has a rich history of artists getting together for recording sessions and gigs. Less common is finding a group of ascendant artists who are committed to playing and touring with one group. Such is the case with James Farm, an acoustic jazz quartet made up of saxophonist Joshua Redman, pianist Aaron Parks, bassist Matt Penman and drummer Eric Harland. Forging a path that traverses jazz, rock, ambient and electronic music, this all-star collective with undeniable chemistry is what the New York Times calls â&#x20AC;&#x153;a model of dazzling proficiency.â&#x20AC;? Kuumbwa; $28 adv/$31 door; 7pm & 9pm. (Cat Johnson)

A psych-rock outfit possessing buckets of swagger, Howlinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Rain is revved-up, fuzzed-out rock & roll. Led by one-time Santa Cruzan Ethan Miller, the San Franciscoâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;based power quintet gives a nod to the arena rock bands of the â&#x20AC;&#x2122;70s while furthering the more melodic side of todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s psychedelic noise scene. The bands latest release, titled The Russian Wilds, was executive produced by the legendary Rick Rubin, whose list of credits includes production for the Beastie Boys, Johnny Cash, Tom Petty and Adele. Catalyst; $10 adv/$12 door; 8:30pm. (CJ)

A longtime fixture in Santa Cruz music circles, multi-instrumentalist Scott Cooper moves freely between improvisational jams, rock, bluegrass and folk music. A celebrated and oftenused sideman, Cooper has recently taken center stage with his first solo release, A Leg Trick. Friday sees him playing with China Cats, a Grateful Dead tribute band whose members are more interested in reviving the spirit of the legendary band than recreating each tune note for note. Using the Deadâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s catalog as a launching pad, China Cats then heads off into swirling, uncharted longform jams. Crowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Nest; $7; 9pm. (CJ)

HIEROGLYPHICS Since the early â&#x20AC;&#x2122;90s, Oakland-based hiphop collective Hieroglyphics has been creating and producing some of the most influential music in the genre. Souls of Mischief, which is comprised of emcees A-Plus, Opio, Phesto and Tajai, will perform with fellow Hiero members Pep Love and Casual. Their sometimes jazzy and often funky lyrical compositions have included collaborations with De La Soul, Gravediggaz and Handsome Boy Modeling School. These talented artists have risen to renown under the watchful gaze of their infamous three-eyed, straight-faced logo, which has become an icon in and of itself. Catalyst; $17 adv/$22 door; 9pm. (Lily Stoicheff)

Williams, self-proclaimed King of the Party, trombone powerhouse and bandleader, combines distinctive brass riffs with a call-and-response MC style.

He second-lines (a uniquely New Orleans style of street-dance) and refuses to let the audience sit still as the band blends rock and funk with jazz-style improv and a horn-heavy front section in a highenergy musical flow. Moeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Alley; $15 adv/$20 door; 9pm. (Maya Weeks)

AUSTIN LOUNGE LIZARDS

Hailing from the Atlas Mountains of Morocco, Fattah Abbou and Mohamed Aoualou are builders of musical and cultural bridges. As founders of the multi-cultural world-fusion group Aza, they combine traditional North African instruments such as the oud and bendir with guitars, penny whistles and horns to create a sound that is at once ancient and futuresque. Rooted deeply in Saharan blues styles, Aza makes contagious and danceable music that defies categorization and inspires global awareness. Don Quixoteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s; $12 adv/$15 door; 8pm. (CJ)

a formula thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worked well for him, but on his new album Ready for Confetti he decided to throw the book out the window. By embracing his inspiration as it struck him while touring and playing 180-plus shows a year, Keen has created a fresh sound for himself, embracing universal themes, singable melodies and catchy, upbeat tunes. However, the old Keen dies hard, and fans will recognize his biting sarcasm, deep insight and humor. Rio Theatre; $25 adv/$40 gold; 7:30pm. (LS)

REVELATIONS TrĂŠ Williams and the Revelations have taken the timeless sounds and themes of original soul and recycled them for the modern listener. Their passion and talent is evident in music that harkens back to the days before auto-tuning, samples and teenage whining and celebrates Williamsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; famed four-octave baritone. The Revelationsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; sound has been forged by hard knocks and Southern church choirs, and from the Daytona Beach projects to the critical crowd at the Apollo in Harlem fans have grooved hard to a sound thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all-natural, unadulterated soul.

Sun Screens The summer movie season threatens to topple under the weight of superhero antics BY RICHARD VON BUSACK

I

IS Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter, opening June 22, the end of something? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a ticklish premise. Would Old Abe (Benjamin Walker)â&#x20AC;&#x201D;who pulled the fangs of slavery from the necks of the downtroddenâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;have done any less when dealing with real vamps? The film is written by Seth Grahame-Smith, who renovated Jane Austen with f lesh-eating zombiesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and whose (bad) script made Dark Shadows over with bizarre McDonaldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s product placement. Maybe this summer brings with it a superhero-movie glut, as bloggers have been raising the alarm about. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d worry more about the video game Max Payne 3 getting reviewed on the front page of The New York Timesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; art section, a piece effusive with compliments on the excellent rendering of the bullets hitting the faces. If there are too many of these capes and masks, it might be worth raising hopes for Christopher Nolanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s well-proven sense of zeitgeist and the politics underneath the superhero tale. The Dark Knight Rises opens July 20. Nolanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s imaginary rendering of terrorist events is

9<756B4/::/>>@=/163A Christian Bale comes out of retirement to save Gotham City and end Christopher Nolanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s trilogy on a high note in â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Dark Knight Rises.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; diabolical, seen in the previews as a football game transformed into the Civil Warâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Battle of the Crater. Poring over the trailer as if it were a Zapruder film, I worry. The film seems unwieldy: a threeway pull among Tom Hardy as the bone-breaking Bane, in his steel lamprey mask and delivering his lines with malty John Huston vocals; Selina Kyle, a.k.a. Catwoman (Anne Hathaway; gorgeous yes, intimidating, well ...); and the aging, called-out-of-retirement Batman (Christian Bale), still a wanted criminal after the end of The Dark Knight. I have a hard time believing that The Amazing Spiderman (July 3) will be quite as provocative as The Dark Knight Rises. The film reprises the origin story, which was done nicely only 10 years ago. The idea this time

is to make Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) a brilliant technician instead of the lucky recipient of just the right kind of spider bite. Director Marc Webb, who made (500) Days of Summer, previously showed some skill in handling doomed romance, so perhaps he can make something meaningful out of the troubles between the superpowered geek and his sort-of girlfriend, Gwen Stacy, played here by the always-endearing Emma Stone. Prometheus (June 8) tells the titanic history of the famous xenomorphs, last seen cringing in despair in 2007â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Alien vs. Predator: Requiem. In deep space in 2085, we learn not just how humanity began but also how we became a favorite vessel for the metaltoothed cephalopods. Voyagers

include Michael Fassbender as an anatomically correct android, Charlize Theron and the ever-violent Noomi Rapace. Total Recall (Aug. 3) is the remake of one of Arnold Schwarzeneggerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most likable films about the nature of reality. This one doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go to Mars, unfortunately, though the claim so far is that Total Recall is closer to the source, Philip K. Dickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;We Can Remember It for You Wholesale,â&#x20AC;? than the 1990 version. Director Len Wiseman is a local; he was raised in Fremont and spent some time at De Anza College studying film before embarking on the most reliably inane franchise not actually made by Luc Besson, the Underworld series. Jon M. Chu, formerly of Palo Alto, directed Step Up 3D, but somehow avoided Step Up Revolution (which


41

opens this July). Instead, Chu is directing Channing Tatum in G.I. Joe: Retaliation ( June 29). We should expect some lame-brained fun, since the first G.I. Joe was an allexpenses paid trip to Absurdistan. This time around, RZA is cast as â&#x20AC;&#x153;Blind Masterâ&#x20AC;?; in addition to Channingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s famous horsemeat, we have the monumental physiques of Duane Johnson and Ray Stevenson together begging the question of the audience, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Do you like gladiator moviesâ&#x20AC;?? In charge of the evil organization Cobra: former mummy Arnold Vosloo as the evil â&#x20AC;&#x153;Zartan.â&#x20AC;? All of the above probably represent too much ruckus for slightly more mature audiences. I hope theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re ready for a new Woody Allen movie, whether one is needed or not. To Rome With Love ( July 6) is Allenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first repayment of his debt to Italian comedy since the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Why Do Some Women Have Trouble Reaching Orgasm?â&#x20AC;? section in Everything You Wanted to Know About Sex 40 years ago. Allen, Penelope Cruz and Alec Baldwin combine in various episodes shot in expensive Eternal Cityâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;scapes. Moonrise Kingdom ( June 22) is, in a word, adorable. Where you stand on the matter of adorability will determine how much you can stand this Wes Anderson opus, his first since his best film, The Fantastic Mr. Fox. Being Andersonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, the Moonrise Kingdom boasts a heavyweight soundtrack: Alexandre Desplat, plus lots of tender and obscure Benjamin Britten and heaps of famous Hank Williams. In September 1965, two runaway

gifted 12-year-olds, Sam and Suzy ( Jared Gilman and Kara Hayward) head off to the wilderness of the fictional New England island of New Penzance. A sad policeman (Bruce Willis) and an intrepid â&#x20AC;&#x153;Khaki Scoutsâ&#x20AC;? leader (Edward Norton) go looking for them. Keeled as it is by some redoubtable middle-aged regret (Bill Murray and Frances McDormand play the strayed girlâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parents), this toy showboat is something like the Max Fischer Players version of Gun Crazy. Saying that, the violence count is subHunger Games. A brace of literary adaptations are also on the summer slate. Trishna (July 27) stars Freida Pinto in a Jaipur-set take on Thomas Hardyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s novel of the ruining of a country girl, Tess of the Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Urbervilles, with Riz Ahmed as the Angel Clare character. Director Michael Winterbottom has been exploring the rollicking, lighthearted world of Hardy since his 1996 Jude. The highly regarded theatrical directors Declan Donnellan and Nick Ormerod have combined for the new film version of De Maupassantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bel Ami, with Twilightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Robert Pattinson as the quintessential Parisian scoundrel, and Uma Thurman and Kristin Scott Thomas among those intrigued by him. And the Boardwalk steps into whatever void may exist with its usual spate of nostalgic screenings on Wednesday nights, sweetened by the sweet price of free. Starting with Lost Boys on July 11, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Grease, The Princess Bride, The Sandlot, Ferris Buellerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day Off, and Goonies wraps it up on Aug. 15. 0

ODD COUPLE Shirley MacLaine and Jack Black get chummy in â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Bernie,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; opening Friday. threaten the survival of alien and mankind alike. (Opens Thurs midnite at 41st Ave, Santa Cruz 9, Riverfront, Scotts Valley and Green Valley)

YOU CANâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;T TAKE IT WITH YOU (1938) In this Academy Awardwinning classic, a woman from an eccentric family falls in love with a banker. When his snobby family meets hers, hilarity ensues. With Jean Arthur and James Stewart. (Thu at Santa Cruz 9)

@3D73EA AVENGERS (PG-13; 142 min.) Joss Whedon directs tale of the director of an international peacekeeping organization (Samuel Jackson) who must recruit a pack of Marvel superheroesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;including Iron Man, Captain America, the Hulk and Thorâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;to save Earth from Thorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s crazy brother Loki. With Robert Downey, Jr., Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans and Scarlett Johansson. BATTLESHIP (PG-13; 131 min) NASA sends out some feelers in the direction of an Earth-like planet and for its trouble gets five massive alien warships parked in the Pacific. Among the puny Earthlings immediately imperiled by this situation is a lieutenant (Taylor Kitsch) who is trying to impress the brass (Liam Neeson, Alexander Skarsgard), one of whom may be his future father-in-law. THE BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL (PG-13; 124 min) British retirees move to India and cope with culture shock in

different ways. With Judi Dench and Maggie Smith.

CHIMPANZEE (G; 78 min) Tim Allen narrates this Disney True Life Adventure documentary about a baby chimp named Oscar who becomes separated from his troop. Just when his luck is about to run out, unexpected help comes in the form of an adult primate who adopts Oscar and raises him like one of his own. (JG) THE DICTATOR (R) Sacha Baron Cohen stars as the bearded, sunglasses-sporting Admiral General Aladeen, who must protect the fictional North African country of Wadiya from the wicked ways of democracy. With Ben Kingsley, John C. Reilly, Megan Fox and Anna Faris. Directed by Larry Charles of Borat, Bruno and Seinfeld fame. DARK SHADOWS (PG-13; 119 min.) Johnny Depp dons long vampire nails and romps with Eva Green in Tim Burtondirected remake of the 1960s vampire soap opera. With Helena Bonham Carter and Michelle Pfeiffer. (TH) MARLEY (PG-13; 144 min.) As with the tale of Elvis it is strange to consider the emergence of people from very humble circumstances and their ability to catalyze public feeling, how they arrive to give the world what it badly needed. The fine documentary Marley by Kevin MacDonald shines a light on that mystery. It shows us a man of mysterious chemical power, of relentless energy and wariness. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a fullsized, sympathetic portrait, and yet itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not softheaded. (RvB)

OTTER 501 (NR) A young woman finds a stranded baby sea otter on a beach south of Big Sur after a storm. Peering down at the damp, shivering fur ball, she grabs her cell phone and makes a call, setting in motion a story about the otterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s struggle for survival and humansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; efforts to protect an iconic species. PIRATES: BAND OF MISFITS (PG; 88 min.) This sweet, winning film from the studio that brought you Wallace and Gromit relates the saga of an indifferently able pirate and his crew, including all due adventures (sword fights, chases, last-minute rescues from the chopping block). The film also serves as a show-biz allegory. The pirate captain (voiced by Hugh Grant) aims for the Pirate of the Year awardâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;essentially, an oversized version of those rings they used to have in gumball machines, complete with genuine rubyette in the eye socket. Flashier candidates sadly outdistance him. Lured to fame, the captain is a mark for schemers. One is the evil Queen Victoria (Imelda Staunton). The other is the conniving Charles Darwin (David Tennant), who tragically betrays his principles in the hopes of meeting girls. (RvB) WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN YOUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;RE EXPECTING (PG-13; 110 min.) Five couples have babies. With Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Lopez, Elizabeth Banks, Dennis Quaid, Chris Rock.
