AM I BLUE? I FOUND the article about Blue Mind by Georgia Perry (â€œBlue Brother,â€? Currents, May 30) poetic, accurate and enchanting. I can sometimes smell the ocean when Iâ€™m downtown on the mall or at the farmerâ€™s market, the cool, subtle sea breezes, calming and soporific, whether by day or by night. At night I can hear the distant crash of the waves, although I live past downtown a couple blocks. When Iâ€™m actually at the seashore, I feel Iâ€™m before a womb of depth and power. Science tells us that all life on Earth originated in the sea, and originally evolved there, and in various spiritual traditions the sea is the waters of the womb of the Goddess, as in the case of Yemaya or
AS\RZSbbS`ab]AO\bO1`chESSYZgZSbbS`a.aO\bOQ`chQ]`b]/bb\(:SbbS`a&%%1SRO`Ab AcWbS"%7\QZcRSQWbgO\R^V]\S\c[PS`]`S[OWZORR`SaaAcP[WaaW]\a [OgPSSRWbSRT]`ZS\UbVQZO`Wbg]`TOQbcOZW\OQQc`OQWSaY\]e\b]ca
Iamanja, in Santeria or CandomblĂŠ. Taoism sees water as yin and the source of all. In psychoanalytical depth psychology, the sea takes us back to the womb and gives us comfort, and that is why warm salt waters are so familiar, comforting and pleasurable. Julia Kristeva has written how the color blue is one of the first colors an infant perceives, and so expanses of blue evoke the bliss of early childhood, before the ego develops, and thus blue has a calming effect. Paradoxically, I believe the yearning for space travel and ballooning also come from the yearning for â€œfloating in the blue,â€? feeling weightless and timeless and in an encompassing space that holds us. Erich J. Holden Santa Cruz
CARS OFF THE MALL [RE: â€œWill Pacific Go Both Ways?â€? Currents, May 30]: I think theyâ€™re looking at this the wrong way. If anything, downtown should be shut off completely to auto traffic and made into more of a European-style scenario like Santana Row. Landscaping down the middle with more outdoor seating. My guess is it would improve business by encouraging foot traffic and providing places for patrons to hang out. It would increase the coolness factor, which would draw more people to downtown. I donâ€™t see how two-way traffic does anything but increase auto traffic, noise and pollution. People used to hang out at the Cooper House because of the outdoor seating and friendly outdoor lounging experience. Pecos Davis Felton

MAKE BUTTHEADS PAY I FEEL strongly that law enforcement needs to enforce the law of litteringâ€”more specifically, people who think itâ€™s OK to toss their cigarette butts wherever they want. This is disrespectful to our precious planet. Are people so ignorant that they donâ€™t realize it can take up to 12 years for the product to decompose? Unfortunately the acetate filters wonâ€™t break down. Iâ€™ve participated in many beach cleanups, and the amount of cigarettes I pick up is nauseating. It amazes me at how some people can just soil our precious beaches with their carcinogenic butts. Unfortunately they release toxic substances into our land and ocean. According to a 1998 study by the USDA, 176,250,000 pounds of cigarette butts were improperly and illegally discarded. Not surprisingly, it is the number one piece of litter in the U.S. Iâ€™m sure Iâ€™m not the only one who would like to see a ticket written for improper disposal of cigarettes. The butts need to pay for their crime. Christopher McIntosh Santa Cruz

SWIP-SWIPINâ€™ AWAY A barista at Firef ly Coffeehouse runs a card. Square has a high user-adoption rate in Santa Cruz, according to company figures.
Easy Reader Square lets small businesses stick it to The Man BY GEORGIA PERRY
â€˜Iâ€™M sorry.â€? â€œI shouldnâ€™t be doing this.â€? â€œItâ€™s all I have.â€? The all-too-familiar refrains of the regular credit card user may soon be put to rest thanks to an entirely different plastic invention, a little white square about the size of a thumbnail. In general, smaller establishments prefer cash transactions because they cost the businesses nothing, while each credit card swipe costs businesses a certain percentage on top of the monthly fee they pay just to
have the ability to read cards with what is called a merchant account. The thinking is that if youâ€™re really supporting small business, youâ€™re not paying with a card. Problem isâ€”who carries cash these days? Caitlin Parker, co-owner of Firef ly Coffeehouse, reassures sheepish card users who approach her counter, tails between their legs: â€œI tell them, â€˜swipe it.â€™â€? The Firef ly uses Square, which charges a f lat 2.75 percent for every swipe and no monthly fees. Parker says sheâ€™s never lost more than $3 a day on it. She speculates
that getting Square last July has increased her sales by 5â€“10 percent, as the Firef ly was cash-only for four years before Square. â€œOnce we got Square I had so many customers come into the shop and say, â€˜Iâ€™m going to come in here every day now.â€™ Before they would come only once every two weeks because they didnâ€™t carry cash.â€? According to Square communications associate Lindsay Wiese, Santa Cruz boasts â€œone of the highest concentrations of useâ€? in the U.S., with more than 1,000 local businesses and individuals using Square. Wiese said Santa Cruz is on a list of Squareâ€™s â€œtop 20 citiesâ€? in terms of activations by population, and compared it to other artsy, eclectic cities such as San Francisco, Portland and Austin. Wiese declined to provide the full list, but The Pacific Coast Business Times reported that Santa Barbaraâ€™s on it too, with 1,500 users. Created by Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey in 2009, Square has 1 million users and processes $5 billion payments a year. The plastic bit plugs into iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch and Android devices and easily syncs up with Squareâ€™s payment processing application. Its allure comes from its low cost and simplicity compared to traditional merchant accounts, whose salespeople, like a Randall I spoke to from BluePay, say confounding things like this: â€œA service like Square, their rates are pretty straightforward. Thatâ€™s not how we do business.â€? â€œYou have enough to worry about when youâ€™re opening up a shop. Itâ€™s nice to have one thing thatâ€™s easy,â€? says Jeremy Lampel, co-owner of Companion Bakeshop and a Square user. But is Square a little too simple? To attract customers Square uses an aggressive social media presence, a microwave-quick sign-up process and a clean, easy-to-navigate
website that seems to be both working for and against them. Squareâ€™s Facebook page, which urges entrepreneurs to wax poetic about their passions, also hosts numerous pleas from consumers to respond to emails and provide somewhere, somehow, for the love of God, a phone numberâ€”noticeably absent on the companyâ€™s sleek web page. Parker has the number, but only because she saved it once when they called her in response to an email. She eyes me conspiratorially. â€œDo you want it?â€? Cliff Hodges, owner of Adventure Out, takes his Square reader into the woods on the companyâ€™s outdoor survival classes to upsell items such as knives and clothing. He also maintains regular merchant accounts for Adventure Out and his other business, Cross Fit West, because they give him options for accepting online registration payments as well as monthly billing, procedures for which Square doesnâ€™t have options. â€œWhen you give people more ways to spend money, they spend more money,â€? he says matter-offactly. â€œItâ€™s not about saving money. Itâ€™s about making more money.â€? While Lampel uses Square at Companionâ€™s storefront, he still uses cash at the farmersâ€™ markets. Nesh Dhillon, Executive Director of Santa Cruz Community Farmers Markets, says heâ€™s looking into different options for accepting plastic at the markets but doesnâ€™t think heâ€™s losing business by being cash only. â€œWe havenâ€™t reached a tipping point yet with that sort of thing. Itâ€™s such a cash business.â€? Wiese insists, â€œSquare is for everyone.â€? Fair enough. But what happens deep in the wilderness on an Adventure Out outing when Square, which depends on a cell phone connection, loses signal? Hodges laughs. What else? â€œWe take cash.â€? 0

Advocating on behalf of the mentally ill BY MARIA GRUSAUSKAS
DESCENDING on Thimann Lecture Hall at 8am on a Thursday morning is like joining a flock of zombies: coffee cups and notebooks loosely clutched, we shuffle through the remnants of last nightâ€™s dreams towards habitual seats in the 300-seat hall. By 8:12am, though, itâ€™s apparent that this isnâ€™t just another morning in the risers of PSYC170, Professor David A. Hoffmanâ€™s abnormal psychology class at UCâ€“Santa Cruz. The waking up begins with the soft and electric speech of Carol Williamson, a Pajaro mom whose son, diagnosed with bipolar disorder at 16, took his own life at 24. Williamson is the current president of the Santa Cruz affiliate of the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), an organization that seeks to educate, support and make serious changes in the mental health sector. â€œI was extremely frustrated because they would not involve me. He was 19. And the doctors that he had felt strongly that he needed to individuate,â€? says Williamson of her son, who was studying at UCâ€“Santa Barbara when things took a turn for the worse. â€œAll of the things that normal therapy teaches therapists about individuationâ€”heâ€™d already done that. He was back home, and I needed to know how to help him.â€? Williamsonâ€™s exclusion from the supposed healing regimen of her sonâ€”because of his adult status, coupled with the doctorsâ€™ belief
YOUâ€™VE GOT A FRIEND From left, Carol Williamson (president of NAMI) with NAMI members and peer facilitators Stephan Dubose, Adrian Bernard, Naomi Fuss, Tristan Arviso and Hugh McCormick. that her son needed to be more independentâ€”is her deepest regret. It fuels her mission as president, which she began four years ago when NAMI had just 50 local members. Today it has 180. â€œI just really wanted other families to not go through what I went through,â€? says Williamson. NAMIâ€™s free educational classes and support groups help everyone involved: the brother diagnosed with schizophrenia, his doctor, his mother, his girlfriend. â€œAnd then with that education you become a spokesman,â€? says Williamson. The five spokespeople sheâ€™s brought this morning have been mental health clients who all facilitate peer support groups for NAMI. Their stories weave through an underworld of pain, loneliness and the fascinating beauty of the â€œother dimension,â€? as one panelist calls it. There is less credence given to actual diagnoses (most have been given multiple diagnoses
throughout their lives) than there is to acceptance, to asking for help and reaching out to others who would otherwise be alone. â€œMost of my life I felt alone, and now I donâ€™t feel so alone. I realize my aloneness, but itâ€™s OK because I know thereâ€™s lots of other people who are just as alone as me and thatâ€™s comforting in a lot of ways,â€? says Adrian Bernard, 39, who encountered his first imaginary friend in elementary school, and whose story details the nine-month psychotic break he had in college, a time of spirit guides, communicating telepathically with teachers and the worldâ€™s most beautiful music piped in through the synapses of his own mind. Naomi Fuss, 40, says that the giveand-take interaction of peer groups has been crucial to her stability. â€œLooking back, I mean, I was put in four-point restraints. I was seen as a complete menace to society,â€? she says.
â€œIt was just huge to find out that I had some peace inside of me, that I had a center I could find inside of me and that I could articulate myself and that I could be compassionate and I had a gentle way about me with other people.â€? All five of the panelistsâ€™ talks are spliced with empowerment. Bernard, who calls mental health clients â€œthe last minority,â€? dreams of a civil rights movement that reverses the dehumanizing process of the current system. â€œAll of the factions are kind of out there jostling for where we stand. And I think at some point thereâ€™s going to be a complete collaboration,â€? says Bernard.

27A?C/:74732 2 am The SCW dive team ing (Jake Pierce, getting manhandled, and Robert Singleton) completes its inspection of Bradyâ€™s Yacht Club.

THE SEASON is upon us. The days are now longer, the nights are warmer and the college students are about to leaveâ€” TH altho although the few w who stay will soon discover the perfect summer pastime and (if theyâ€™re lucky) may even assimilate into this local tradition them themselves. Summer is the time of dive bars. Itâ€™s warm enough for a pitcher on the patio or to simply walk to your next destinatio destination. You can always get a table. But where to star Bu start? Letâ€™s open with a few simple parameters, beginning with what makes a dive. It usually boils down to good drink prices an and friendly people. Pool tables, dartboards, a jukebox and a slightly smoky atmosphere donâ€™t hurt a bit. A good goo dive usually has more grumpy old men than the Sentinelâ€™s online comments page. And while occasional live music is allowed, tthe diveyn diveyness of the bar itself must remain the top attraction. When we embar embarked on our tour, we wanted to create the perfect scoring system. Like a good beer, we broke down each bar by sm smell (outwa (outward appearance and first impressions), mouthfeel (its inner feeling and collective mood) and taste (drink variety, prices and any food). See sidebar, page 14, for more on the scoring system. Ratings are out of a possible 5. We learned some important lessons along the way. First, with more than 15 dives in a county of 260,000 people, Santa Cruz is well represented in this department. Second, many dives come in geographically close pairs (Sir Froggyâ€™s and JJâ€™s; Callahanâ€™s and Jury Room), but oftentimes devotees of one wouldnâ€™t be caught dead in the other. Third, the best bars really are neighborhood bars, where, as the Cheers theme song famously puts it, everybody knows your name. Â¨

Bradyâ€™s Yacht Club Smell 4.5 Mouthfeel 5 Taste 4.5 Overall 4.7 Jake: People at Bradyâ€™s are outgoing and mostly friendly. Some nights are rougher than others, though. On one occasion I was twice put into a headlock in mid-conversation by a coked-out, washed-up surfer dude (I talked my way out of both moves, of course). Whatâ€™s difficult to say is whether this bar and its divey atmosphere excel in spite of such elements or because of them. And itâ€™s worth noting the hilarious irony in calling this a â€œyacht club,â€? a term usually reserved for highly organized nautical elitists with day jobs. In a close match we lost a game of pool to a sunglasses-wearing Gordon Lightfoot lookalike who might have stepped out of a time machine, or maybe a 1970s surf documentary. People in every corner of Bradyâ€™s, from the back parking lot to the bathroom sink, ask others how their nightâ€™s going. And bartenders like the always-charming Jesse Lillifjel take good care of their customers. Robert: Bradyâ€™s is an awesome place to hang out with old friends and meet new people. Itâ€™s got everything: a heavy dose of tattoos, smirks, toothless grins, drunken scowls, foamy beards, Torpedo on tap and some drunken surfers who can barely stand up but somehow still kick your ass at pool. To me itâ€™s the perfect dive bar because it has the intimidation factor mixed in with some chummy commiseration.
Definitely the place to be when last call comes around. Montyâ€™s Log Cabin Smell 4.5 Mouthfeel 4.5 Taste 4.5 Overall 4.5 Jake: It took guest judge Ray Montezuma a half hour to offer his analysis of Montyâ€™s, which keeps its outdoor Christmas lights up yearround. â€œHey man, this place feels like a house party in a cabin,â€? Montezuma pondered, â€œbut in a good way!â€? The people at Montyâ€™s have stories to tell. Across the street from Henry Cowell Redwood State Park, it is one of the friendliest dive bars in the county, but it can be shy at first. Sometimes it takes a little time and initiative to make

mountain introverts want to open up and talk to someone new. Once everyone is libatiously lubricated, though, people are more than happy to share perspectives over a game of pool or at one of the barâ€™s two outdoor fire pits. Of course for most of us, this dogfriendly Felton destination is a long drive from civilization, and a trusty designated driver might be hard to come by. Lucky for Montyâ€™s regulars, though, most patrons seem to live within a couple blocks of the barâ€” part of what gives this neighborhood joint its flavor. Robert: Montyâ€™s wins the best first impression award by far. Why? Because itâ€™s an actual log cabin, complete with two fire pits in the back. You mean to tell me I can drink good beer and hang out by
the campfire while swapping horror stories with locals, and I can bring my dog? Next time Iâ€™m going to bring my sleeping bag. Iâ€™d give the Log Cabin two thumbs up, but Iâ€™ve forgotten which direction that is. So has everyone else, and they know what I mean anyway, so just come and see for yourself. The Pocket Smell 4 Mouthfeel 4.5 Taste 4.5 Overall 4.3 Jake: Now hereâ€™s a pleasant surprise. The first time we walked through the Pocketâ€™s front door under a glowing green letter â€œP,â€? a well-built black man towering over us asked, â€œDo you guys have your Â¨ "

That sent the smoke-break crowd around him into hysterics. Lamont, whoâ€™d only give us his first name, isnâ€™t a bouncer, just a typical Pocket jokester. When youâ€™re a newbie to the Pocket (formerly Carlâ€™s Corner Pocket), your first 30 seconds might be dominated by locals reminding you youâ€™re an outsider. Once thatâ€™s over, theyâ€™ll probably spend the rest of the night trying to make you feel at home. Robert: The best thing about the Pocket is the people, straight up. I hadnâ€™t even gotten inside the bar before the locals started screwing with me, only to buy me a drink
and slap a pipe in my mouth, just so they could screw with me a little more. But really, they had some great stories, were really friendly and treated us like old friends they hadnâ€™t seen in a while. It also had a great feel to it, some awesome decorations, and they served Torpedo on tap in red cups rather than pint glasses (a new dive high/low, depending). It was like a more grungy, genuine version of Cheers, but with more tattoos and the smell of ocean blended with nostalgia. Best bar on the Eastside. Sir Froggyâ€™s Pub Smell 3.5 Mouthfeel 4 Taste 4 Overall 3.7
Scoring Criteria Given the sheer importance of this article, we had to design a scoring system that would be as entertaining, at least to us, as it would be fair. With that sentiment in mind, we came up with the following rubric. Each dive bar would be judged in the same manner a good beer would, through smell, mouthfeel and taste (metaphorically speaking, of course).
HbZaa refers to the barâ€™s outward appearance and first impression. Before you really dive into something you typically smell it first, or at least I do. (By the way, there is nothing like that first musty breath of dive, right after a workday of inhaling clean and controlled bullshit.) Another way to think about the smell factor is that feeling you get right as you first walk in. Inhale. â€œAm I going to be stabbed? Are the people here having fun or are their heads all down? How chill is that guy uncontrollably muttering to himself in the corner?â€? These are all smell questions.
Bdji][ZZa is the metric used to capture the barâ€™s inner feeling, the collective mood of the place once you spend some more time inside. This can refer to the types of people, the dĂŠcor (or lack thereof) and, of course, the music, which should rock or maybe twang but definitely not thump (crappy techno has no place in a dive bar). That being said, it really is more of an intuitive rating. The music and wall linings really only help inasmuch as they set the tone for those first couple of encounters, the one with the bartender being one of them.
IVhiZ quite explicitly refers to everything that is not intuitive, like the cost of drinks, the food available, the jukebox, the pool table, yadda yadda yadda. However, to me one of the most overlooked aspects of dive bar taste is the bathroom, which, despite the disgusting association you now have in your head, really does tell you a lot about how well the place is being treated (or not).

Jake: If you can get over some of the exorbitant â€œpremiumâ€? beer prices ($6.50 for a pint of Guinness or Blue Moon almost disqualifies it from dive bar status), Sir Froggyâ€™s, right next to Soquel Creek, is a pretty awesome joint. Itâ€™s fun yet relaxed. And its cocktail prices are reasonable. One stranger bought five (count â€™em, five!) rounds of JĂ¤ger bombs for everyone. Thatâ€™s a lot of Red Bulls and a lot of booze. â€œNothing is more evident of the transcendental, existential nature of the world than taking JĂ¤germeister shots with a bunch of strangers,â€? guest judge Montezuma opined. â€œWe qualify our existence with our collective confusion and listen to a powerful, uniting ballad.â€? Meanwhile, a pool opponent accused our team of being â€œhomosexualâ€? because we were giving each other too many hugs. But by the end of the night, we turned him around: that same man told us there was nothing wrong with our bromantic â€œlifestyle.â€? Thatâ€™s usâ€” changing peopleâ€™s perspectives and patting backs every step of the way. Robert: This is a great bar, not
too crowded, not too intense, good beer, some locals to play pool with and a sense of intimacy that is lost on most other places. What I really like about this place is that the music is just the right volume to be able to carry on a conversation across the length of the bar and not interrupt anyone else. The drinks are a bit overpriced, but it makes up for that in character. Itâ€™s also home to Jessica Sweeny, our winner for the cutest bartender award (see sidebar, page 17). Sir Froggyâ€™s is a bit more tame than other dive bars, but it fills that niche perfectly. A fun place to be if what you really want to do is just hang out and be yourself. The Rush Inn Smell 3 Mouthfeel 4 Taste 3 Overall 3.3 Jake: The Rush is renowned for having the friendliest service in the county. Bartenders like Nate Krohn, Brian Rucker and Molly McVeigh make an effort to remember customersâ€™ names. This downtown Â¨ $

McVeigh, who also works at the Crepe Place and the Red Room, assured me it was OK for me to drink the leftover Budweiser of some very â€œcleanâ€? guy who had left for band practice a half-hour earlier. â€œThis is literally the oldest bar in Santa Cruz,â€? patron Jennifer Sharpe said over one of our tourâ€™s less competitive pool
games. â€œI came here for the historical factor. Itâ€™s definitely not a pickup joint.â€? Robert: The Rush Inn is a pretty friendly, pretty fun dive located on the back end of Front Street near the clock tower in downtown Santa Cruz. Itâ€™s filled with cool people, has a cool atmosphere and it even claims its own specialty beer. I found this place to be the most archetypical dive

In Heaven Theyâ€™ll Never Close In loving memory of dive bars past I]Z6kZcjZ (closed 2012) The most recent casualty to Santa Cruzâ€™s dive scene, the Avenue Bar and Cigars was the best place to watch overaged, underpaid prostitutes flash returning customers and new victims. Those who didnâ€™t want to see anything illegal happen simply had to close their eyes and listen to the sweet, sweet sounds of â€œIâ€™ll get you the money tomorrow!â€? No joke, Pacific hasnâ€™t been the same since March.
=jggn7VX`>cc (closed 2004) Like a piece from a Western movie set, this dank little standalone neighborhood bar on 41st Avenue near Pleasure Point had a certain aura about itâ€”whether of defeat or authenticity, you had to decide for yourself.
I]Z@c^\]iDla(closed c. 2000) According to one summation in Metro Santa Cruz, â€œIf youâ€™ve been 86â€™d from every other bar in Santa Cruz for being drunk and disorderly, then this is the place for you.â€? Also called the Fight Owl, this Seabright watering hole (now the Mad House) was famous for its sticky floors, which were overlaid with a smelly patina of peanut shells and cigarette butts. I]ZH^akZg7jaaZi(closed 1998) Revered for its â€œdrink and drownâ€? Wednesdays and superb jukebox, this rowdy bar at Soquel and Front streets was leveled to make room for the parking garage. An â€œI miss the Silver Bulletâ€? Facebook page keeps the torch burning; a recent discussion focused on whether Callahanâ€™s could be the new Bullet.

Dive Bar Hall of Fame 8jiZhi7VgiZcYZg;ZbVaZ Jessica Sweeny, Sir Froggyâ€™s Pub and Callahanâ€™s When we first encountered the lovely Ms. Sweeny she was behind the bar at Callahanâ€™s, wearing a short blue skirt and a leopard print top, which, in case you donâ€™t know, is very stylish and pretty divey at the same time. It was her smile, however, that did me in. Itâ€™s just so cute and playful, as if sheâ€™s toying with you but still means well. In what can only be attributed to fate, we encountered her again, this time behind the wooden bar of Sir Froggyâ€™s. She is as gorgeous as she is cool. (RS)

Thereâ€™s a reason itâ€™s called the nasty Asti, because this shit is straight gross. Like any dive bar, I wasnâ€™t expecting magical cherubs to descend from the sky every time I needed to drain the dragon, but damn. I honestly might have preferred a hole in the ground to this fluid-stained disaster area. You know itâ€™s a bad bathroom when the graffiti is indistinguishable from the blood/piss marks on the walls. Donâ€™t use this. (RS)

Sister Act CocoRosieâ€™s experimental streak is a family trait BY AARON CARNES
TO understand the performance artâ€“ driven, strange musical juxtapositions of CocoRosie, a band frequently accused by critics of being pretentious or too bizarre for its own good, itâ€™s important to understand the two women behind the group. As young children, sisters Bianca and Sierra Casady lived a bohemian existence with their mother, rarely staying in one town for more than a year and focusing more of their attention on weird art projectsâ€”at their motherâ€™s insistenceâ€”than on schoolwork. Itâ€™s no wonder, then, that when they grew up and formed a band in the early 2000s, it was not simply so they could play songs. Music was a means to expose the hidden details of their souls to anyone within earshot, including themselves. â€œWe present the raw footage of our unconscious. The stories reveal themselves to us in the moment, as startlingly new for us as it is for the audience,â€? Bianca says. They got labeled early on as â€œfreak folk,â€? but really their aim has always been to mix styles and instruments that donâ€™t normally go togetherâ€”hip-hop with opera, toy instruments with a full rock band, violins with beatboxing. Their lyrics tell stories that are rich in detail and full of vivid characters,
WE ARE FAMILY Sisters Bianca and Sierra Casady of CocoRosie get their alter egos on this Thursday at the Rio. yet, much like a dream or a surrealist painting, always missing critical pieces of information. Still, they leave a strong impression on the listener. The sisters sometimes dress in drag, complete with fake mustaches, or in botched hip-hop garb with a dash of renaissance flair. Their shows include bits of theater and performance art, often as abstract as their lyrics. â€œThere is no intention (to what we do) other than shocking ourselves, seeing a new face in the mirror, dreaming of something you never imagined before, finding out you were a swan in a past life, discovering you donâ€™t know how to love,â€? Bianca says. CocoRosie didnâ€™t start out this way. Their first album, La Maison de Mon RĂŞve (2004), was recorded in Sierraâ€™s apartment with only the sisters performing, using mostly toy instruments. When they played live, it was just the two of them. â€œIn the â€˜early daysâ€™ I was filled with horror and jittery nerves. My voice felt
alien and it was a very painful thing to sing. Now itâ€™s hard to pull me off when itâ€™s all over,â€? Bianca says. For their second album, Noahâ€™s Ark (2005), they expanded to include other players like Devendra Banhart, Antony Hegarty and Spleen. It was their third album, The Adventures of Ghosthorse and Stillhorse (2007), that made CocoRosie an indie household names. Upbeat and danceable, the sound was full and layered. The live shows expanded to include a full band and more theatrical performance art. Critical reception for the album was all over the map. Some gave it high marks, while others, like Pitchfork, slammed it, giving it a 2.3 out of 10. Wrote author Marc Hogan, â€œThe more self-impressed CocoRosie sisters Bianca and Sierra Casady get about transcending genres, the less patience they have for mere mortal concerns like, um, songs.â€? On their fourth and most recent
album, 2010â€™s Grey Oceans, CocoRosie, in stark contrast to the fun sound of the previous album, play some of their quietest and most introspective songs to date. â€œItâ€™s funny how things turn out and how they seem,â€? says Bianca. â€œDeath was all about the making of our third album, and there was so much joy in making the fourth.â€? As CocoRosie evolves, the main driving force will continue to be the two sisters, whose personalities bring out juxtapositions in their art that give them their unique sound. â€œA lot of the contradiction is the actual innate differences between Sierra and I. She loves to match and I donâ€™t. Itâ€™s always a seesaw, a tug of war,â€? Bianca says. COCOROSIE BVc`aROgOb&^[ @W]BVSOb`S BWQYSba ORd !R]]`Ob Ab`SSbZWUVbO\RbWQYSbeSPQ][

RAY CHARLES PROJECT
RAY WYLIE HUBBARD
Featuring some of the most beloved blues and jazz musicians from the last 50 years, the Ray Charles Project is backed by Santana keyboardist Dave Mathews on his Hammond B-3, DeWayne Pate of Robben Fordâ€™s Band on bass and Deszon Claiborne on drums. Fronting the Project (and raising the Awesome-o-Meter by a few degrees) are three renowned vocalists: Tony Lindsay of Santana fame; celebrated organist, pianist and vocalist Clifford Coulter and Glenn Walters of the HooDoo Rhythm Devils. The â€œFather of Soulâ€? couldnâ€™t have asked for a more worthy bunch to celebrate his timeless musical legacy. Kuumbwa; $18 adv/$21 door; 7pm. (Lily Stoicheff)
Filled with beautiful crescendos and auditory hallucinations, the Mermenâ€™s music is a crashing wave of melodic sound. The Santa Cruz area trioâ€™s uncanny ability to paint psychedelic images with their instruments is unprecedented in todayâ€™s music scene. Quite an impressive feat for a band that has only released one album in the past decade, but itâ€™s the Mermenâ€™s firm belief in quality over quantity that has kept their standards so high. Proceeds for this show will be donated to the Santa Cruz Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation. Moeâ€™s Alley; $12 adv/$15 door; 9pm. (Maya Weeks)
Ray Wylie Hubbard has long been the choice of discerning country fans who prefer their outlaws somewhat cracked. Itâ€™s perhaps not the most lucrative career pathâ€”Hubbardâ€™s bestknown song is the classic contrarian country anthem â€œUp Against the Wall, Redneck Mother,â€? which was popularized by Jerry Jeff Walker. Still, thereâ€™s much to be said for a confirmed outlaw keeping it real in a music genre desperate to iron out the rough edges and go pop. Don Quixoteâ€™s; $18 adv/$20 door; 8pm. (Paul M. Davis)
BLITZEN TRAPPER Hailing from the musical hotspot of Portland, Blitzen Trapper has become one of the darlings of the under-theradar rock world. With an everyman vibe that feels more 1970 than 2012, these guys take the work-hard-playhard approach, creating good old rock songs with catchy hooks, air-guitarable leads and plenty of singalong harmonies. While the influence of acts such as Neil Young, the Band and Creedence Clearwater Revival is apparent, Blitzen Trapperâ€™s well-crafted sound and energetic delivery set them apart from both the pack and the past. Rio Theatre; $15; 8pm. (Cat Johnson)
SATURDAY | 6/9
PATRICK WATSON Patrick Watson and his eponymous Montreal-based band have achieved national and international acclaim by exploring the divisions between pop and experimental music. Hailed as a musical mad scientist, Patrick Watson has a knack for creating surreal acoustic landscapes, both organic and electronic, while his bandmates
have been known to use whateverâ€™s at hand to create their unique sound, be it an expertly played bicycle or a set of spoons. Their newest record was created in the wake of a long, exciting tour, but themes of home and loneliness ground their otherwise eclectic sound. Don Quixoteâ€™s; $12 adv/$15 door; 9pm. (LS)

DAVID GRISMAN/ FRANK VIGNOLA DUO Mandolin master David Grismanâ€™s music is so vast and varied that it needed its own genre. Thus, Dawg music was born. Seamlessly fusing elements of jazz, traditional bluegrass, swing, folk, old world styles and newgrass, Dawg music is a testament to its namesakeâ€™s proficiency and his seemingly limitless musical range. Frank Vignola, one of Grismanâ€™s longtime friends and collaborators, is a jazz guitarist who moves effortlessly between fusion, hard-bop, swing, post-bop and pop-jazz. Together these world-class instrumentalists take on the Great American Songbook in freewheeling style. Kuumbwa; $25 adv/$28 door; 7 & 9pm. (CJ)

EMILY JANE WHITE At home in the darker corners of the indie-folk universe, singer/songwriter Emily Jane White hangs her hat on introspective songs built around tearinducing matters. Possessing a whispery voice and appreciation for dusty, sad and rustic subjects and style, the UCSC alum draws comparisons to Mazzy Star and Cat Power, but her music falls into a category of its own. Balancing folk, country-blues and a pinch of Gothic, White carves a niche for herself in modern music while paying respect to time-honored musical traditions. Crepe Place; $8; 9pm. (CJ)
WEDNESDAY | 6/13
THRICE Since the Orange County quartet released their first studio album in 2001, theyâ€™ve become a staple in the alternative-modern-rock world, consistently releasing ground-breaking records. Thriceâ€™s newest efforts have sought to streamline their previous experiments while incorporating the grunge sounds of the â€™90s. Catalyst; $17 adv/$21 door; 8pm. (LS)

LOLLYGAG Sheridan Smith is a naughty maid nicknamed â€˜Molly the Lollyâ€™ in â€˜Hysteria.â€™
Climax Change Ă‰>oij[h_WĂŠY^hed_Yb[iW^Wffocec[dj_dj^[ ^_ijehoe\\[cWb[i[nkWb_jo BY RICHARD VON BUSACK YOUâ€™D LOVE to applaud Hysteria for the way it encourages female pleasure. But Tanya Wexlerâ€™s historical farce is so self-congratulatory, it barely allows its audience a few mild civilized chuckles. There is some talent here, mostly squandered. Jonathan Pryce steals his scenes as a pompous Victorian doctor. He treats his patients with a method most of us learned at about age 13 1/2. Itâ€™s Dr. Robert Dalrympleâ€™s practice to manipulate the genitals of his customers. This procedure relieves his patientsâ€”welloff, middle-aged womenâ€”of abdominal discomfort, unwanted thoughts, depression and every other symptom indicated by the term â€œhysteria.â€? Dr. Mortimer Granville (the handsome, vacant Hugh Dancy) joins Dalrympleâ€™s practice and starts keeping the company of the doctorâ€™s daughter Emily (Felicity Jones); she is an amateur phrenologist who says things like â€œyour thrombus is so rigid and jutting.â€? Yet Granville is disturbed by the political convictions of Emilyâ€™s sister Charlotte, a midwife (a robustly miscast Maggie Gyllenhaal) who has no patience with the problems of these well-off bored ladies. Charlotteâ€™s main cause is nursing the poor in the East End. Mortimer is good at his task. Sadly, the doctor falls victim to carpal tunnel from wanking all of these upper-class dames. Thatâ€™s when his wealthy inventor friend Edmund (Rupert Everett) comes up with
an electrifying new invention. An actress who canâ€™t do a good comedy orgasm scene has no place in the cinema. Sexy toast-of-the-West End type Sheridan Smith mugs pleasurably, playing a debauched maid nicknamed â€œMolly the Lolly.â€? Georgie Glenâ€™s shriek of â€œTally-ho!â€? at the capital moment is rich, particularly since sheâ€™s wearing her Scottish bonnet all through the experience. Malcolm Rennie exemplifies Hysteriaâ€™s problems; he comes in to a fancy engagement party as Lord St. JohnSmythe, in evening clothes and huge Dundreary whiskers; heâ€™s full-bellied and thereâ€™s a moist and fraudulent gleam in his eye. Whatâ€™s Rennie going to bring to this movie? Nothing, except a frowned line: â€œI despise business!â€? Heâ€™s the symbol of Hysteria, with its number of actors and actresses, all dressed up with no place to go. Director Wexler seems caught in the problem of a film addressing twin evils: poverty and the second-class status of women. Itâ€™s as if sheâ€™s unable to take the second one seriously. She canâ€™t visualize the sadness of lonely women enough to make their moments of happiness truly ticklish. HYSTERIA @)[W\ =^S\a4`WROg
ORANGE BLOSSOM SPECIAL Yvonne ThebergĂŠ shows off the strawberry orange blossom sorbet from the Picnic Basket.
Beach Picnic Bingo
0/A93B0/:: Artisanal food impresarios HOQV2OdWaO\R9S\R`O 0OYS` continue their handmade roll through the tastebuds of Santa Cruz. It wasnâ€™t enough that this entrepreneurial duo gave us downtownâ€™s >S\\g7QS 1`SO[S`g, and plenty of national coverage for the little shopâ€™s innovative
hand-made desserts. They needed to bring us more. Much more. And so there is the delightful beachfront >WQ\WQ0OaYSb, facing the Boardwalk and seaside volleyball courts. Yes, the same Picnic Basket that got yet another shoutout in this monthâ€™s Sunset Magazine. Open early enough to please the caffeinadoes who stroll the beachfront in the morning, the small establishment, tucked under the Beach Street Inn & Suites, has a tasty listing of morning pastries to accompany all that Verve-fueled coffee. â€œAnd we just added a breakfast burrito,â€? co-owner Davis told me proudly. â€œThatâ€™s pretty good.â€? Currently the cafe opens at 7am and stays open until midnight on weekends, around 9pm on other days. â€œBut weâ€™ll be thinking about extending those hours as the summer warms up and the Boardwalk starts opening late,â€? he added. Davis agrees that the Basket enjoys â€œan awesome relationshipâ€? with 1V`Wa :SDS_cS and 3ZAOZQVWQVS`]. â€œWeâ€™re doing a meatloaf special, and his hot dog. Plus he made some pastrami for us, and it was so popular that now he is selling it at his shop.â€? On a recent visit I buried my face in a cone of deeply crimson sorbet intensely flavored with Dirty Girl strawberries and orange blossomâ€”$3.50 for two scoops to heaven. As I feasted, I checked out the cozy booths and tables in the shop. And then I considered what I might have had for lunch. Pulled pork sandwiches, or a baguette topped with ham, blue brie and fruit preserves. And thereâ€™s a ricotta beet panini with walnut tapenade for those who still refrain from carnivore territory. Truly inventive sandwichesâ€”for enlightened picnicsâ€”that go well with the voluptuous ice cream offerings. E7<3B7;3 Donâ€™t forget this weekendâ€™s DW\b\S`a4SabWdOZ, Saturday and Sunday, June 9â€“10. Among other things, this is a great reason to trek up to AWZdS`;]c\bOW\EW\S`g, which has been making fine wines, and some award-winning pinots, for 33 years. Special tastings, art, artisanal food itemsâ€” itâ€™s a true mega-festival in one atmospheric location. Get your Vintners Fest tickets at www.scmwa.com and make some new vintage friends.
