Delivery Woman Political office comes with certain perks and responsibilities (“Animal House,” The Fly, June 27). You need to “deliver the goods” to the district from time to time, like getting a dock

built in Alviso or a bridge or other stuff like that. Ms. [liz] Kniss is simply trying to show her once and future constituents that she can do this. BLAIR WHITNEY

Twinkie Time “Oh, and there’s one other important detail: Kniss is running for a seat on the Palo Alto City Council this fall.” Great news item, Fly! This is the type of stuff that makes me crazy. But that’s probably what you intended. You should probably offer an extra Twinkie or Ding Dong to whoever slipped this item under your door. LOU SCANNON

Feline Recall My husband just ran across online the article on the Cats of Los Gatos (“In the Shadow of the Cat,” Arts, Oct. 17, 2007, available in Metroactive.com archives). We both enjoyed it very much. My maternal grandfather was Robert Paine, the sculptor. I never met him although I was 8 years old when he died. He left my grandmother in the house he built in Berkeley and went on about his life, ultimately moving to Los Angeles, where he died in 1946. From what little my mother would say about him, he was indeed an eccentric man. She was very angry with him, perhaps for deserting my grandmother, so she wouldn’t say much. However, because of the family connection, I’ve had a special place

in my heart for the Cats all my life. Thank you for the article. LUCY POPE | BERKELEY

THE FLY

Emergency Alert RURAL/METRO took over Santa Clara County’s ambulance contract last July, and by most accounts the company has done a good job. The company submitted a low bid to replace American Medical Response, and county Supervisors GEORGE SHIRAKAWA, MIKE WASSERMAN and DAVE CORTESE championed Rural/Metro as a low-cost yet responsible replacement. Aside from a rough transition in the first month on the job, response times have been above the required threshold in most cases. However, what isn’t found in the monthly reports that Rural/Metro is required to submit to the county is the number of patient records the company lost in its first two months on the job. According to company spokesman MICHAEL SIMONSEN, Rural/Metro lost 117 Patient Care Records (PCRs) in July 2011 and another 25 in August. The company says the lost reports were caused by faulty technology—smart phones and tablets that didn’t upload the information Don’t properly—but even forget more disturbing might to tip! be the fact that the company had no idea FLY@ how many reports were METRONEWS. COM lost until Fly asked Rural/Metro last month. Seriously—a year went by, and the company had no interest in finding out how bad of a problem it had on its hands until word leaked. Even more disturbing is that Rural/Metro may have misled county officials about the severity of the problem. MICHAEL PETRIE, the county Emergency Medical Services director, told Fly last month, “We believe we still have the data.” This, of course, was not true. Maybe even more troubling, though, is that EMTs whose reports were lost in the matrix were told by their supervisors to re-create reports based off of memory and hospital records. Rural/ Metro says 20-30 reports, which are also used to bill patients, were re-created in this fashion.

water to Southern California. The project has been tentatively called the “Peripheral Canal” for decades, since state voters rejected a proposal to build such a conveyance structure in 1982. Opponents of the canal say the project would remove so much water from the Sacramento River that it would make the estuary habitat of the Delta, where juvenile salmon spend their first six months of life, incapable of supporting certain native fishes. But now the “Peripheral Canal” plan is back on the drawing board of state government officials, including Gov. Jerry Brown. The Golden Gate Salmon Association, based in Petaluma, wants to see the project halted before it destroys one of the West Coast’s largest runs of Chinook salmon. “These are critical times, in the next

year or two, for what the Bay-Delta and its salmon will look like for the rest of our lives,” says Victor Gonella, founder and president of the Golden Gate Salmon Association. “It’s a rare time. We’re sitting here while our future is shaping up.” Chinook salmon spawn in many watersheds along the West Coast, as far north as Alaska’s Yukon River. The Sacramento River is the southernmost stronghold of the species, but its salmon runs have seen a roller-coaster ride in the last decade between record high and record low levels. Experts largely agree that water conditions, including flow rates, of the river and Delta, where baby salmon spend their first months of life, have a direct effect on salmon abundance. State and federal records show a long-term average spawning return of the fall-run Chinook, the most historically abundant of the Sacramento’s four distinct runs of salmon, to be between 300,000 and 400,000 fish. But 2009’s record low of 39,000 spawners came after water pumping rates from the Delta


listed species, has seen benefits from these water-restriction laws. Still, habitat conditions in the Delta are generally so poor that baby salmon born in Sacramento’s tributaries must be transported by the millions in trucks and released into the bay, downstream of the Delta and its dangerous water pumps. This trucking program, however, may be downsized due to state budget cuts, which could be a disaster for salmon numbers. Jon Rosenfield, a conservation biologist at the Bay Institute in Novato, says that in spite of the Chinook salmon’s hardiness, the Sacramento River has been so severely altered from its natural state by dam-building and water diversions that it can no longer support self-sustaining runs of salmon. “What [salmon] require is pretty simple,” he says. “Sufficient cold water must flow unimpeded from the mountains to the ocean during the appropriate season. The fact that salmon populations are declining dramatically throughout the Central Valley indicates how badly our thirst for water has overtaxed the capacity of our rivers to support wild salmon populations.” Gov. Brown has told reporters that the canal, which is now being designed as part of the Bay Delta Conservation Plan and which could be in operation within several years, will cost $15 billion. But others have second-guessed the governor and believe the water conveyance project could cost state voters as much as $50 billion or more. Other critics have made the case that the “Peripheral Canal” could be illegal. In 1992, the Central Valley Project Improvement Act was passed, requiring that the federal government, in words from the Fish and Wildlife Service’s website, “protect, restore, and enhance fish, wildlife, and associated habitats in the Central Valley and Trinity River basins of California.” Conservationists say this law has been continuously broken for 20 years, and that the “Peripheral Canal” will only further the deterioration of Sacramento River native fishes habitat. Gonella asserts that people must not be deceived by the summer’s great salmon fishing into believing the fishery is healthy and stable. “We’re having a great year, and they’re expecting a great year next year,” Gonella says. “But people don’t realize that if we don’t get this right, it’s game over. The salmon will be gone.”

jumped by 20 percent, to all-time high levels, from 2003 to 2006. Fishermen fear that the proposed canal will cause a decrease in waterflow rates, and as a result a decline in salmon numbers. “[Gov.] Brown needs to scrap the ‘Peripheral Canal’ until further notice,” says Mike Hudson, a commercial fisherman in Oakland. Hudson says the current fishing is as good as it’s been in at least five years, but he adds that he isn’t confident about the future. “Along the entire West Coast we have managed to stop overfishing. Now, if we could only stop overfarming we’d have it made.” Peter Moyle, a fisheries biologist at UC-Davis, says that the current system for water removal from the Sacramento River, which involves two giant pumps in the Delta, reverses the entire flow of the estuary system when the pumps are operating at full force. This phenomenon confuses young salmon trying to migrate out to sea, Moyle says. Many become lost or stranded in sloughs, where they make easy pickings for predators. Others are sucked directly into the pumps and killed. Moyle says the canal, which would draw water from a location far upstream of the Delta, could be beneficial for the Delta habitat since the reverse flow effect would no longer occur. But he says that a healthy salmon population requires a minimum amount of water flowing through the Delta and out to sea. “A conveyance in any form will be positive from a native fish perspective only if it is connected to no net increase in diversion [of water],” Moyle says. What makes Gonella at the Golden Gate Salmon Association nervous is that current plans for the canal’s construction include a 15,000-cubicfoot-per-second capacity, enough to virtually suck the Sacramento River dry. Gonella wants to see that capacity downsized, or see a guarantee written into the plans for the “Peripheral Canal” that assures recipients of the water could never turn the flow up to full. The current surge in salmon abundance seems to come partly in response to a federal law that took effect three years ago that limits how much water can be removed from the Sacramento River Delta during the winter and spring months, when juveniles of the protected spring- and winter-run salmon are present in the Delta. The fall-run, which is not a

Google Director Leaves for Ad Industry Rival Google’s senior director of corporate development, mergers, acquisitions and integration, Marcella Butler, has quit Google to become chief human resources officer and senior vice president of people at MediaOcean, a startup that delivers an operating system and advertising platform to media buyers. Butler had a huge job at Google, as the person at the top during the company’s $2.32 billion buying spree in 2011, when it merged some 72 smaller companies into its operations, including YouTube and Android, according to the WSJ. Butler ran integration teams responsible for bringing legal, HR and security solutions to acquired companies. Within Google, Butler’s previous roles included HR director to the global Product Management organization; finance director to the Display Advertising Sales organization; and director of M&A Integration responsible for every aspect of integration of newly acquired businesses, from HR to intellectual property. “MediaOcean’s human assets are tremendous. It’s an incredibly talented and passionate group of people, who understand the business of marketing technology like no one else around,” said Butler in a MediaOcean statement. “To empower MediaOcean’s teams to translate their assets into the next generation of marketing technology is a role I’m tremendously excited to begin.” Butler has an equally big job ahead of her. MediaOcean, based in New York, is the product of a merger between MediaBank and DDS that is still in the integration phase. MediaOcean has 800 employees in 12 offices spread across five countries. The company says it has more than 50,000 users

In a move that could be interpreted as both long overdue and, perhaps, meant to stem the defection of top personnel from the newly public social media platform leader, Facebook today announced that Sheryl Sandberg, the company’s chief operating officer, has been appointed to its board of directors. Sandberg, who joined the company in 2008 after working as vice president of Global Online Sales and Operations at Google, has been in charge of overseeing Facebook’s business operations including sales, marketing, business development, legal, human resources, public policy and communications. “Sheryl has been my partner in running Facebook and has been central to our growth and success over the years,” said Mark Zuckerberg, founder and CEO of Facebook. “Her understanding of our mission and long-term opportunity, and her experience both at Facebook and on public company boards makes her a natural fit for our board.” “Facebook is working every day to make the world more open and connected,” Sandberg said. “It’s a mission that I’m deeply passionate about, and I feel fortunate to be part of a company that is having such a profound impact in the world.” Sandberg’s pledge of allegiance to Facebook is in stark contrast to Facebook chief technology officer Brett Taylor, who last week announced on his own Facebook page that he is leaving the company. Taylor, who had been supervisor of platform and mobile products, said

J_\ipcJXe[Y\i^

he will part ways with Facebook this summer to pursue his own as-yet-unrevealed startup. This news came as a blow to Facebook, which industry watchers said is already in trouble with the media and investors over its mediocre IPO last month. Taylor’s departure could cause some to infer that Facebook has trouble hanging onto its entrepreneurial leaders. Sandberg has long been recognized as a leading woman in the business and technology communities. She previously served as chief of staff for the United States Treasury Department under President Bill Clinton and began her career as an economist with the World Bank. She received B.A. and M.B.A degrees from Harvard University. Sandberg also serves on the boards of the Walt Disney Company, Women for Women International, the Center for Global Development and V-Day. Along with Sandberg, Facebook’s current board members are: Mark Zuckerberg; Marc L. Andreessen of Andreessen Horowitz; Erskine B. Bowles, president emeritus of the University of North Carolina system; James W. Breyer of Accel Partners; Donald E. Graham, chairman and CEO of the Washington Post Company; Reed Hastings, chairman and CEO of Netflix; and Peter A. Thiel of Founders Fund.—DH

An inside look at San Jose politics

JONATHAN PADILLA

Outreach Efforts Have Ulterior Motives? THE Santa Clara County Democratic Party attempted to make the political battlefield a bit more familiar this past weekend with probably the largest day of action it has held since the 2008 election cycle. In particular, the event, which took place Saturday at the South Bay Labor Temple, focused on voter registration in “historically disengaged communities.” In other words, the county party teamed up with local, communitybased Democratic chapters to focus on Hispanic outreach in East San Jose. The desperate need for outreach to this community cannot be disputed. Hispanic Americans leave more than 10 million votes on the table nationally every election cycle, a fact that contributes to a loss of real political power from Washington, D.C., to Sacramento to right here in San Jose. I earnestly support and have worked on robust programs like those being launched by Voto Latino, where the model is sustained, continued registration and mobilization—where the goal of moving the entire community forward is at heart. However, when diving deeper into the local political calculus, there’s a clear winner from this particular effort in East San Jose: former Assemblyman and current candidate for state Senate District 15 Joe Coto. This might explain why the local party was convinced to take up the effort now, even though Hispanic representation has always lagged and there has always been the opportunity to reach out to this community. (As a disclaimer, this author has publicly endorsed Assemblyman Jim Beall.) This past January, when the California Democratic Party held

regional endorsement caucuses in Los Altos and then again in February at the State Democratic Party Convention in San Diego, you could practically predict who would vote for the party to endorse Beall and who wanted the party to endorse Coto—based on surname. I was one of the handful of Latinos to not vote for Coto, and I definitely felt pressured to vote for Coto in the process because of my ethnicity. It was really something to behold, just how much of a factor race became in that endorsement process, which ultimately left neither Coto nor Beall with an official party endorsement. While I still believe the effort to register Hispanics is of critical importance, the main proponents of this program in local Democratic politics are overwhelmingly Coto supporters, who have engineered a true coup for that campaign: using local party resources and volunteers to register voters who will more likely than not vote for Coto over Beall. A community can gain power with votes, but I sincerely hope that my analysis here is wrong, because organizing Hispanics for the purpose of getting a Hispanic elected is shortsighted and small thinking. Real and lasting power is when a community

CUBESOULS

TWITTER: @sanjoseinside FACEBOOK: SanJoseInside

can organize itself to the point where it joins a broader conversation, not dominated by race—where coalitions based on ideas and shared values matter more than the color of one’s skin. The local Democratic Party should have a sustained effort that goes beyond organizing Latinos for November. The thinly veiled purpose of helping elect Joe Coto is a disservice to that community, which is frequently targeted only when needed. It’s time that Latinos in San Jose organize for the sake of having a full seat at the decision-making table. Jonathan M. Padilla is a recent Harvard graduate, who has worked at the White House, in local, state and national political campaigns, and in organizing the greater Hispanic community. He is currently working as a Teach for America corps member in the Bay Area.

Twenty years ago, pianist Thollem McDonas probably could have had a concert career. After graduating with degrees in both piano performance and composition, he could have donned a tuxedo and plied his trade in the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s greatest concert and performance venues. Instead, McDonas decided to expound energy in grass-roots political and ecological movements. At that time, everyone thought he was bonkers for squandering his potential. Thankfully, about eight years ago, McDonas returned to music with full focus and everyone still thought he was bonkers. After all, who could spend a life traveling and also be diverse enough to teach improvisation workshops in Mexico, play keys with political-punk bands in Italy and write essays alongside renowned contemporary composers? Who could possibly survive crisscrossing

the Atlantic every year, performing theaters, art galleries galleries, elementary in theaters schools, concert halls, jazz clubs, festivals, warehouses, gardens, gutters, prisons and riotsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and on television, radio and the Internet? Yet this is what McDonas does. Today, with no permanent roof over his head, McDonas is experiencing a detonation of notoriety. A â&#x20AC;&#x153;peripatetic musician,â&#x20AC;? this critically acclaimed pianist has, just in the last few months, released The Gowanus Session with jazz legend William Parker and Wilco guitarist Nels Cline. He also spent a weekend locked in a boiling hot Texas house with Mike Watt, John Dieterich and Tim Barnes to bang out yet another CD, You Are Always on Our Minds, calling the group The Hand to Man Band. In the last eight years, McDonas has added 24 albums to his discography on 20 different vanguard record labels in four different countries. Legendary composer Terry Riley even wrote the liner notes for the music McDonas cut using Debussyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s old piano, in partnership with the late contrabass virtuoso Stefano Scodanibbio. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more, McDonas also just penned an essay, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Deep Listening and

the Peripatetic Life of an Improvising Musician,â&#x20AC;? included in the abovementioned anthology. His journey is an unlikely, but inspiring one. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Perpetual travel enlightens both the traveler as well as those with whom they come into contact,â&#x20AC;? McDonas writes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I believe that traveling musicians/artists/creative and free thinkers are necessary as nongovernmental cultural ambassadors, because they represent their communities and countries and ďŹ ll an important role as artist liaisons in the relations between diverse peoples.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Deep listening,â&#x20AC;? a philosophy originally developed by the pioneering 20th-century composer Pauline Oliveros, weaves Buddhist mindfulness with enhanced musical improvisation skills, distinguishing the difference the involuntary nature of between th hearing and the voluntary selective listening. One becomes nature of lis aware of all soundsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;musical, environmental, socialâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;in order environmen to develop a heightened sense of awareness. book, the philosophy In the bo is applied to numerous contexts. McDonas, ffor instance, relates it of a nomadic musician, to the life o constantly iingesting unfamiliar sonic palettes wherever he roams, merging them with the creative musical ideas already inside his head. A heightened awareness of constantly changing environmental sounds affects how he improvises onstage, no matter in which country he ďŹ nds himself. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The experience of being in physical motion encourages my mind to stay in motion as well,â&#x20AC;? he writes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m exposed to unique sounds in diverse environments that continually inform the way I hear and interact. I experience the unknown sometimes around every corner, encouraging me to keep extra aware of my surroundings and therefore putting me into a continual state of nonhabit. I feel the direct connection of the ďŹ&#x201A;ow of my body through space with the ďŹ&#x201A;ow of ideas through my mind as new experiences are constantly stimulating new ideas.â&#x20AC;? Hail Spartans, hail!

Finding of the 2000 Measure A Citizens Watchdog Committee

Measure A, approved by Santa Clara County voters in 2000, is a 30-year half cent sales tax that generates revenue to enhance the county’s public transit system. Many of its projects, including the highly anticipated BART extension to Silicon Valley and electrification of the Caltrain system, require years of planning, engineering, and environmental work before they are operational. Although Measure A was passed in 2000, revenue collection did not begin until April 2006 when a previous tax expired. Significant accomplishments and milestones during the first six years of the Measure A Program are set forth for public review on VTA’s website, www.vta.org. The Citizens Watchdog Committee (CWC) is responsible for review of 2000 Measure A expenditures to ensure funds are being spent in accordance with the intent of the ballot. The CWC has recently completed its review of FY 2011 expenditures, evaluated the results of an independent audit it commissioned of Measure A financial records, and conducted a public hearing on May 9, 2012 to receive input from the community. After thorough and careful consideration of all information and input received: It is the conclusion of the Citizens Watchdog Committee that, for the period of FY 2011, 2000 Measure A tax dollars were spent in accordance with the intent of the measure. CWC members and VTA staff are available to meet with community and civic groups to provide information on Measure A, the CWC’s ­{än®ÊÎÓ£‡xÈnäÊUÊ//9\Ê­{än®ÊÎÓ£‡ÓÎÎäÊUÊwww.vta.org responsibilities, findings and Annual Report, and to receive input on Measure A.

A big-city market, however, should have a proper fish market and a boisterous seafood bar and that’s

something San Pedro Square doesn’t have yet. The closest thing is Blush Raw Bar and Lounge. Blush isn’t really a raw bar, though. A raw bar features a wide range of fresh seafood, raw and cooked, oysters, cockles, clams, crab prepared before you by chatty, wisecracking cooks in starched white aprons who are quick with oyster shucker and knife. At least that’s my vision for a big-city, public-market oyster bar. Instead, Blush serves Americanized sushi and a few varieties of oysters and a forgettable shrimp cocktail. The menu includes sushi with lots of squiggly squirted sauces, spicy tuna rolls, dragon rolls—that kind of thing. The food is OK, but it’s no different than what you would find

at the dozens of other Silicon Valley sushi restaurant. So why go? Well, happy hour helps. Most items are $5. One-dollar oysters are hard to beat, and there are usually three varieties of Bay Area and Pacific Northwest oysters available. The crispy ahi tacos ($5 for three) were pretty good, too. Sitting outside in a comfortable chair on a warm night can make for a good time. Just avoid Blush’s signature cocktails. They go for $5 during happy hour, but they should be skipped at any price. The drinks are loaded with ice to the top in tall glasses and filled with a choice of syrupy sweet fruit mixer and vodka or rum—and then topped with one of four equally syrupy sweet flavors of ice slush. That’s right, a sweet, over-iced cocktails crowned with a layer of slurpee. If you’re trapped in the body of a 17-year-old girl the cocktails will sound totally awesome, but if your taste in drinks ranges beyond booze-spiked Kool-Aid,

One-dollar oysters are hard to beat, and there are usually three varieties of Bay Area and Pacific Northwest oysters available. The crispy ahi tacos ($5 for three) were pretty good, too. Service on my visit was less than professional. The all-women waitstaff seemed to have been hired more for their looks than their skills on the floor. San Pedro Square Market is filling out nicely, but there’s still a bit of work to be done in the raw-bar department.

you’re advised to steer clear of the childish cocktails and ask for a real man’s (or women’s) drink. The Lusardi building is far less built out than the other half of the market across the way, so Blush looks a little stark, but it is an appealing space that opens up to an outdoor lounge. I didn’t stay late enough for the place to morph into its loungier identity, but hearing Journey and Boston booming from the stereo system didn’t entice me to stay.

escape the ordinary japantownsanjose.org Jackson & Taylor Streets between 1st and 7th Downtown San Jose

Hawaii is the most food insecure state in America. It imports as much as 90 percent of its food and is highly vulnerable to disruptions in food supplies and spikes in the cost of oil. I was struck by the high cost and limited variety of food. We cooked for ourselves most nights because it was cheaper than eating out, but a trip to the grocery store was shocking. A carton of eggs was $7. Kale went for $4.50 a bunch. Potato chips were $5 a bag. (OK, they were fried in fancy avocado oil, but still). Luckily, I found a local few local farmers markets. Whenever I travel, I try to visit the local farmers market. It offers a window onto the local food scene, what’s grown and who buys it. But the Koloa market on Kauai’s south shore was unlike anything I’d even seen. At home, I like to go to my farmers market early. It opens at 9am, and I’m often one of the first people there. At the Koloa market, however, there’s a long line that forms well before it opens at noon. A rope strung across the parking lot keeps people out. Once the rope drops, the people rush in to scoop up deals on locally grown fruit and vegetables. And these weren’t yuppies. They were working-class people shopping for their families. By 1:30pm, several vendors had sold out. It’s easy to see why the market attracts such a crowd. It’s cheaper than what’s available in the grocery store and far fresher, since the food didn’t travel 2,500 miles across the Pacific Ocean. There’s a greater variety, too. I saw several kinds of mangoes, local tomatoes, green beans, passion fruit, and my favorite, soupsop, a spiny, kidney-shaped fruit also known as the custard apple. As recently as the 1930s, Hawaii was 100 percent self-sufficient. That’s not possible now, but with the islands’ year-round growing season and fertile soils, developing a thriving local food economy is entirely possible and should be a top priority for Hawaii. In addition to fresher, often lower-priced food, local agriculture means local jobs and less reliance on a global, petroleumdependent food system is running out of gas, literally and figuratively. If the container ships and planes ever stopped coming to Hawaii it wouldn’t take long for food supplies to dry up. By then, it would be too late to start talking about cultivating a local food system. For us mainlanders who enjoy both the abundance of farmers markets and relatively “cheap” food at stores, it’s worth appreciating that our food supply is not a given. It runs mainly on oil and cheap labor, resources no longer in such abundance. Where would your food come from if either of those things dried up?—Stett Holbrook

The vendors will remain the same, but the new layout promises more room on the street and sidewalks to allow shoppers more elbow room and access to more businesses. The plan will also provide better access for street musicians. The new format will now encompass the section of East Campbell Avenue between Second and Third streets, which were not part of the original layout. The new layout will go into effect July 15.

ERIK JEKABSON

MATES OF STATES tiva Festival. Stanford Jazzz F the Sta Chet Baker at th ute Che salutes KA IK JEKABSON ERIK

*wed MATES OF STATE The Catalyst, Santa Cruz Wed – 9pm; $15 Before there was Matt & Kim, or the Submarines, there was Mates of States. I doubt that makes them the original cute-indierock-duo-in-a-relationship, but they certainly upped the awww factor, and hopelessly in love hipster musicians have never looked back. Debuting with a pretty stark organ-and-drum dominated sound, they’ve evolved considerably, and last year’s Mountaintops showed off their most expansive full-band sound yet. Their covers mixtape, Crushes, is also a must-listen, especially their sweet cover of Daniel

Johnston’s “True Love Will Find You in the End.” (SP)

NEKROMANTIX Blank Club, San Jose 9pm; $13/$15 While American psychobilly has stuck close to its rockabilly roots thanks to freaks like the Cramps and Rev. Horton Heat who had a fetish for Sun Records, European psychobilly bands had no such ties. In the ’90s, a whole wave of them began cranking up the louder and faster until they were basically hardcore bands with slap bass. Denmark’s Nekromantix are the most ambitious and famous of these Eurobilly bands. Discovering that Rancid’s Tim Armstrong was a huge fan and signing to his label, they quickly moved to L.A. and rode the horrorcore wave of the early 2000s. Member shuffles

and the tragic death of drummer Andy DeMize kept them out of the studio for almost five years, but last year frontman Kim Nekroman returned with a new lineup and a new album, What Happens in Hell Stays in Hell. (SP)

CHET BAKER TRIBUTE Campbell Recital Hall, Stanford Fri – 8pm; $15-$40 As part of the busy Stanford Jazz Festival, trumpeter Erik Jekabson and his quintet salute the memorable, haunted music of jazzman Chet Baker, whose image and sound combined

Cele eb brra atte e the Fou urth of Ju ully y witth cute h indiie e coup e--rrock’s traiilb plle e MATES OF lblaziin ST ng TA g ATES.

to form a lasting statement about “cool jazz” during his brief early career before drugs took their toll. Jekabson’s quintet features a familiar name on the local scene, saxophonist Smith Dobson V, son of the late pianist Smith Dobson IV, who was such a significant part of our jazz scene for many years. Other Jazz Fest performers this week include Poncho Sanchez (July 7) and Kenny Washington (July 8). (MSG)

SAN FRANCESCA Homestead Lanes; Cupertino Sat — 8pm; $8 Remember when San Francesca were called Le Verita? They couldn’t decide if they were a

dance or rock band, just like early New Order. But their new album, We Live in Public, showcases their new lineup and matured sound. With a drummer, the synth-pop elements have been tempered significantly, exposing some of their less obvious influences like Sigur Rós and other slow burning, experimental post-rock bands, yet they still mix in some straight-forward pop sounds and some heart-felt indie rock influences (bands like the National come to mind). The first few tracks start out darker and heavier with Harrison Russell’s vocals bathed in distortion, giving it an eerie distance. Deeper in, the album mellows out a bit. There’s even a few pretty synth ballads, played with drums of course. Also performing is East Bay metalstring band Judgment Day. (AC)

JF:@8C JF:@8C J8KLI;8PJ Myth; San Jose Saturday – 10pm; free Every week, Myth Lounge brings Social Saturdays, a non-stop evening of thumping house music, to downtown San Jose. It tends to pack the place, so be prepared to do a little socializing. The house can get a little loud, but that shouldn’t prevent you from having a wild night of mingling, and maybe some dancing if you’re feeling brave. The music starts at 10, but if you get there early, you can grab some Greek dinner first at Myth’s fine restaurant and warm up your social skills before the DJ starts spinning records. (AC)

<:FG?8>P Refuge; Cupertino Sat – 6pm; $8 Santa Cruz’s Ecophagy can play some super-fast grindcore. They can also play some super-slow grindcore. Then some super-fast, then super-slow grindcore once again. Most of the members are under 18, which gives them ample teen angst to spare. The emotional intensity is unrelenting. So is the volume. We’re talking about full throttle metal-punkrock mayhem—your ear drums may hate you after the show, but you’ll be on an adrenaline high. This show will be Ecophagy’s only San Jose show this summer, plus they’ll be releasing their new demo, so you can listen to them screaming at the top of their lungs on the drive home too. (AC)

*sun *tue C@>?KJ9<:FD< JK8IJ Johnny V’s, San Jose Sun — matinee show There’s a haunting, epic quality to San Jose’s Lights Become Stars that recalls exciting but bummedout bands like Joy Division and Bauhaus. Ed Havel’s vocals help create that mood, but the creeping atmospherics from the rest of the band don’t hurt. Remarkably, the band actually promotes a fairly relentless positivism, lyrical flickers of light in a swirling void. The guitars, too, tend to rise up in the choruses, proving that if you can’t win ‘em all, at least you can dance in the dark. Horse Thief also performs. (SP)

9CL<JN<<B Downtown San Jose Jul 10-15; various venues and prices The party leading up to the 32nd annual Fountain Blues Festival (presented by Metro, of course) begins in earnest with a free show by Tip of the Top at Johnny V’s. The next night’s action shifts to Poor House Bistro for a show with local favorite Ron Thompson. Other performers on tap include Kaye Bohler, Aki Kumar and J.C. Smith. The big day is Saturday, July 14, when Elvin Bishop, Canned Heat, Ruthie Foster and more fill the afternoon in St. James Park with prime blues. (MSG)

Sorkin abuses a famous political maxim: speak not at all softly, carry the biggest stick and then club everyone to death with it as you make grandstanding value judgments. Jeff Daniels carries the stick as Will McAvoy, a surly anchor undergoing a transformation from milquetoast everyman to impassioned soothsayer. Following a slightly unhinged tirade made during a media panel, McAvoy and his team of crusaders at the Atlantic Cable News network try to flip the script of TV news overnight. McAvoy’s new show is helmed by executive producer and onetime fling Mackenzie MacHale, played with a skittish give and take by Emily Mortimer. We hope to learn something about the two

anonymous black characters, one of whom is “smart enough” to challenge Obama. Then there’s the problem of Slumdog Millionaire’s Dev Patel. The network’s lone blogger, responds to “Neal Sampat” and occasionally to “Punjab,” which is a place in India and not, contrary to popular opinion, a name. To be fair, Patel is Punjabi! But still. The point is clear: McAvoy is one callous buzzard, concerned with “just the facts,” except when he isn’t. That’s a burden also carried by the viewer. The show is so tantalizingly manipulative and dishonest that despite betraying the philosophical axis of its own premise, you stop caring. It’s easy to be dismantled by the blitzkrieg of Sorkin’s dialogue, where characters don’t just deal in measly small talk but also unpack monologues full of heightened imperatives and bite. The pilot’s plot unravels with fury. While MacHale plays to McAvoy’s heroic, pained ego with references to Don Quixote, the team alights on

breaking news: an oil spill off the coast of Louisiana. The disaster presents a opportunity for McAvoy’s “finest hour,” and where crickets once chirped, the studio’s now full of movement and Mayday appeals. They tie things up with a pristine bow, positioning McAvoy as less like Jay Leno, more like Walter Cronkite. He’s back, baby! And he finally remembers his assistant’s name, an unhinged blonde by the name of Margaret (Alison Pill). The hero rides off on his horse/donkey. For all of this, Sorkin’s been skewered by (surprise) the media in a way that he wasn’t for a show like The West Wing or the doomsday prophecy that was 2010’s The Social Network. The Newsroom is as overwrought and mythological, but instead of aiming his slingshot of morality at cold-blooded politicos or Internet entrepreneurs, Sorkin is taking a weird slant on the news media, and they’ve already got enough people to do that (th (though they won’t). This isn’t the skept skeptical take of Paddy Chayefsky’s N Network either, a film Sorkin is awar aware of but clearly not interested in rremaking. The questio question isn’t “What is this show about?” It’s “Who is this show about?” and if you temporarily ignore the ob obviousness of seeing Sorkin’s name hang a shade brighter than the show show’s title, you can see the other cha chance for humor. And intentional humor is not this show’s strength, even with Superbad director Greg Mottola at the wheel. In speaking with The New York Times, Keith Olbermann, the former sportsman turned progressive crank humbly submitted himself as person of interest. It seems plausible given Newsroom and its similarity to an earlier Sorkin show, Sports Night. Still I suspect that Will McAvoy is reminiscent of a lot of people, and maybe a handful of them have something to do with the news. He’s a cynic, but also a sentimentalist. He is an idea. He exists for more than our, or Aaron Sorkin’s, ego. He exists to entertain.

MEETING OF MINDS Bill Wilson (left, Ray Chambers) and Dr. Bob Smith (Robert Sicular) learn to listen in ‘Bill W. and Dr. Bob.’

Sobering THE YEAR was 1935. Prohibition’s attempts at stamping out alcoholism by force had failed, but two men discovered that simply sitting down and opening up to each other could help them stop drinking. The men were Bill Wilson and Dr. Bob Smith, the founders of Alcoholics Anonymous, whose story is now told in Bill W. and Dr. Bob, a play written by the husbandand-wife team of Samuel Shem and Janet Surrey and currently at San Jose Repertory Theater in its first West Coast run. The events will be familiar to some. Bill (Ray Chambers) and Bob (Robert Sicular) meet in Bill W. and Dr. Bob Akron, Ohio, help each other sober up and then seek out other alcoholics to help. They have little Runs through July 15; luck at first, but they find that in trying to help $29–$74 others, they stay sober themselves. The play also covers their early involvement with the Oxford San Jose Repertory Group, a Christian movement that laid some of the Theatre groundwork for AA, but also showed Bill and Bob what not to do—namely, not to preach at their fellow alcoholics but rather to “take the cotton out of your ears and put it in your mouth.” This might sound like fodder for a syrupy inspirational story, but Bill W. and Dr. Bob takes a very honest tack, portraying its two heroes as regular men rather than saints. The play also possesses an unexpectedly sly sense of humor, while at the same time treating with appropriate seriousness the subject of alcoholism—a fact of which we are reminded by the monolithic backdrop of glowing booze bottles. Chambers and Sicular work well together, with contrasting yet complementary performances: Bill, the slick businessman with a flair for salesmanship, “a man who could talk a dog off a meat truck,” and Bob, the older, more down-to-earth surgeon. Carrie Paff and Kandis Chappell play Bill’s and Bob’s long-suffering wives, Lois and Anne, who look upon their husbands’ project with bemused skepticism, though they eventually form a support group of their own (in real life, Lois Wilson went on to found AlAnon, a network for the loved ones of alcoholics). Cindy Goldfield and Mike Ryan, meanwhile, do a decent job of fleshing out all the minor characters. Though not exactly a life-changing experience, Bill W. and Dr. Bob is a shrewd, funny, moving piece of theater that is well worth seeing.—Sean Conwell

a 360-degree shot of the Piazza del Popolo. The swooning views of the city are accompanied with musical familiarities: “Volare,” of course, and “Arrivederci, Roma.” At least, there is far better accordion playing here than in Midnight in Paris. The pangs this film causes to those who haven’t been to Rome—or to those who have been and miss it—are mitigated by jokes older than Tacitus. One sample: a tourist’s comment about Michelangelo working on the Sistine ceiling, “Imagine spending all that time on your back.” And a whore replies ... It’s a sprawling, multipart tale; Allen was thinking Boccaccio, or at least Boccaccio ’70 (1962). He has Penélope Cruz as a Santa Sophia surrogate. She plays a gold-hearted

hooker interfering with a bewildered newlywed man (Alessandro Tiberi) and his very pretty and shy wife (Alessandra Mastronardi). Cruz concludes her utter conquest of Lorenism by getting a retro hairstyle, speaking Italian and wearing a skintight crimson dress displaying what the Firesign Theater termed “a balcony you could recite Shakespeare off of.” Why couldn’t Allen figure out a better way to introduce such a rare sight than with the immemorial farce that begins: “Surprise! You have just won a free prostitute!” In a different triangle, Ellen Page plays a flighty actress visiting a couple named Jack and Sally (Jesse Eisenberg and a squandered Greta Gerwig). Page describes a lesbian sexual encounter during a dinner with the couple; Eisenberg’s Jack makes a memorable face, exactly like a dog being trained by having a biscuit balanced on its nose. As an unasked-for mentor, Alec Baldwin materializes to warn Jack about all those irresponsible

trifling dames who listen to Bartok and pretend to read Yeats. (Take Allen’s word for it, such girls are still roaming loose, wreaking havoc.) While Allen has long been stealing the energy of young actors to make himself youthful, he should have left a little more blood in Page. She looks even more like a director’s relentless construct than she did in Juno. Allen himself is aboard as a retiree going to Rome with his wife (Judy Davis, another rare sight). His timetested chicken-liveredness begins on the Alitalia flight: “Turbulence, my favorite!” Roberto Benigni, sprung from movie jail, stars in a snippet about the price of fame. He plays a dull businessman besieged by paparazzi. We wait for Benigni’s Daffy Duck moment—something like the explosion he detonated at the Palermo opera house in Johnny Stecchino (1991). His pants-dropping tirade is another u de ou undernourished payoff. co admiration for To I have cold L Rome With Love’s old-time showbiz I one despairs at the Neil canniness. If Simonized lines, one admires Allen’s time-honor way with staging a time-honored line as in the film’s capping punch line, exp joke, an expensively mounted finale gre opera singer who can about a great perfor in one condition. only perform Baldwin certainly looks like he has a movie in h him; he’s all suave worldU weariness. Unfortunately, Allen gives th Cary Grant couldn’t sell. him lines that Who goes to Rome and murmurs that “all these old ruins depress me”? To Rome With Love (it probably could have been Rome, Italian Style as per SCTV) charms with its postcard views, but not with the pat finish of its various moral tales. Two separate characters complain of “Ozymandias melancholia” as they get in the way of the scenery. Ozymandias indeedias—what’s falling apart here, Rome or Woody Allen? By weird coincidence, on a recent Mad Men episode, a young ad copywriter flashed his portfolio and boasted, “Look upon my works, ye mighty.” Someone else in the room snapped, “Read the rest of the poem, you boob.”

Revivals GIGI/LOVE IN THE AFTERNOON (1958/1957) Leslie Caron stars as the courtesan-in-training to Maurice Chevalier in Vincente Minnelliâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Oscar-bedecked musical. BILLED WITH Love in the Afternoon. Not as elegant as its title. A Parisian private detective (Chevalier) has a musicstudent daughter courting an infamous seducer (Gary Cooper).

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a Lubitsch pastiche past its expiration date. Worst, a dying Cooper was also trying to reach back into his glamorous past: clad in a tuxedo, and smoking the cigarettes that were killing him, he looks like a ghost. Audrey Hepburn gives this feeble ďŹ lm some beauty and energy. She sports a loose coiffure thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more youthful, even, than the gamine cut she made famous.

Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the dodgy ringleader of a London gang of robbers, posing as classical musicians; a sweet but surprisingly durable old lady gets in their way. BILLED WITH Our Man in Havana. An enterprising vacuum cleaner salesman (Guinness) gets wrapped up in espionage for extra money in pre-Castro Cuba. One of the driest of spy comedies; tragically, its also one of the most accurate. Fine cast: Ralph Richardson and Noel Coward as the MI-6 types and doomed anti-comedian Ernie Kovacs as a Cuban general. Directed by Carol Reed from a novel (and screenplay) by Graham Greene.

Reviews BERNIE (PG-13; 98 min.) Brilliant Richard Linklater comedy regarding a plump and dainty mortician (Jack Black) of the piney-woods town of Carthage, Texas, and his relationship of sorts with the richest and most vicious

widow in town, Marjorie Nugent (Shirley MacLaine). If it sounds like a put-down to describe acting as pulling faces, MacLaine pulls the best faces seen this year or in many years. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s based on a true-life murder case, originally reported in the Texas Monthly by the ďŹ lmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s co-scriptwriter Skip Hollandsworth. Linklater keeps in almost all the

details of the bizarre story. But this ďŹ lm version goes more meta, as per Linklaterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s career skill in hunting down a vibe in Slackers, et al. Through interviews with the startlingly acute locals, Bernie celebrates the contradictory charm and awfulness of such a small town. (RvB)

REVIEW

JK@:BP=@E><IJ8e[i\n>XiĂ&#x201C;\c[jkXpjXYfm\`kXcc`eĂ&#x2030;K_\8dXq`e^Jg`[\i$DXe%Ă&#x160;

Spider Games SOME OF the key ďŹ ghting in The Amazing Spider-Man occurs in sewers. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grittier and more nocturnal, and Andrew GarďŹ eldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Peter Parker is a blocky, tormented adolescent: sometimes dangerously cocky, sometimes too shy to say a coherent sentence to the girl he loves. The emo and bloody ďŹ lm is about how our hero ďŹ ghts a giant lizard-man. But the narrative is so muddled that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to tell what else The Amazing Spider-Man is about. The year 2002 was not that long ago; and we can prove that by how much The Amazing Spider-Man tries to emulate SpiderMan (2002), from its substantial beauty as a love story to its fairy-tale motto. The latter has been TwitterďŹ ed: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Not choice. Responsibility!â&#x20AC;? Spider-Man explained moral dilemmas with schoolbook sincerity. This new movie explains everything that way. The Amazing Spider-Man is apparently intended for the preliterate, and the threeperson script is a shambles. So director Marc Webb ((500) Days of Summer) tries to amaze us with technology. Since pixel-herding has improved in a decade, this tactic works about a third of the time. Then there are the other twothirds, a long and slow replay of the origin story, now with extra coincidences. A plus is a younger, more low-income Aunt May, played by Sally Field. Seeing her nephewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bruises, she exclaims, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Where do you go?

Who does this to you?â&#x20AC;? Moments like that snap the ďŹ lm out of superhero opera into believable drama. Unfortunately, the ďŹ lm snaps back. Also bungeed into the action is Emma Stone, bright and merry as they come, but only romantic relief compared to how K_\8dXq`e^ Kirsten Dunstâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mary Jg`[\i$DXe Jane shaped Spider-Man. Stoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Gwen Stacy is the PG-13; 136 min. daughter of the police Opens July 3 chief (Denis Leary), who is waiting to put Spider-Man in jail. Meanwhile, Gwen interns at the evil Osborne corporation, where theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to implement â&#x20AC;&#x153;A World Without Weakness.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leading herpetologistâ&#x20AC;? Curt Connors (Rhys Ifans) is this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s scientiďŹ c-disaster victim. Resembling Ray Harryhausenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ymir from 20 Million Miles to Earth, the transformed Dr. Connors is a realistically animated and distinguished Marvel villain. The monster looks great. What he is isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t quite as clear. We could feel for Norman Osborneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chemical schizophrenia, for Flint Markoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jean Valjean desperation or for Dr. Octavius and the catastrophe that twisted him. Connorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; pain just looks like self-pityâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and Peter Parker has enough of that for any movie.â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Richard von Busack

metroactive FILM THE BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL (PG-13, 122 min.) Based on Deborah Moggachâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s These Foolish Things, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a summit meeting of great British thespians: seven distinguished elders meet in a story held together by a peeling retirement hotel in Jaipur, a Raj-era ruin. A widow gradually blossoms (Judi Dench); a married man shows modest enchantment (Bill Nighy); a wizened gent becomes a randy goat (Ronald Pickup); a wife (Penelope Wilton) responds with absolute disgust to the heat and noise and insects and the ďŹ lth. Some Desiinterest and perfunctory under-60 love interest arises in the form of the Marigoldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hapless manager Sonny (Dev Patel). But watching something impressive, such as the scene of Tom Wilkinsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Graham sitting in a garden and unfolding on his personal life, I thought, â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is really ďŹ ne playwriting. Too bad itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a ďŹ lm.â&#x20AC;? And the arc careens too high for Maggie Smith, as a terriďŹ ed Cockney racist who suddenly proves her unlikely super-powers. (RvB)

MADAGASCAR 3: EUROPEâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S MOST WANTED (PG; 95 min.) In what the title tells me is only the third Madagascar ďŹ lm, Alex the Lion, Marty the Zebra, Melman the Giraffe, and Gloria the Hippopotamus (voiced by Ben Stiller, Chris Rock, David Schwimmer and Jada Pinkett Smith, respectively) set out to return to New York City after escaping Africa in the last installment. Their plan goes predictably awry, and the four animals ďŹ nd themselves stranded in Monte Carlo and in the crosshairs of a traveling circus.

35

MAGIC MIKE (R; 110 min.) Channing Tatum plays a veteran stripper named Magic Mike (which strangely, sounds like a subpar stripper name when compared to â&#x20AC;&#x153;Channing Tatumâ&#x20AC;?). The ďŹ lm is directed by Steven Soderbergh, who continues his â&#x20AC;&#x153;one for the studio, one for myselfâ&#x20AC;? system of ďŹ lmmakingâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;though where this one falls is anyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s guess.

SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN (PG-13; 127 min.) The second Snow White adaptation of 2012 (whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in the water down in Los Angeles?) comes from the producers of 2010â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s blockbuster Alice in Wonderland (never mind, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s box-ofďŹ ce receipts gushing out of those faucets). The ďŹ lm stars Kristen Stewart as the titular princess-to-be; Chris Hemsworth (of The Avengers fame) as the titular Huntsman; and Charlize Theron as the evil queen.

TED (R; 106 min.) Ted marks Seth McFarlaneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s (of Family Guy fame) feature ďŹ lm debut, and it is a mix of live-action, commuter animation, a blank check and a blind eye. Mark Wahlberg plays a Boston native whose childhood wish for his teddy bear to come to life is granted, for better or worse. Now in his adult years, he ďŹ nds himself ready to kick Ted (voiced by McFarlane) to the curb after his girlfriend (Mila Kunis) demands that he ditch the slacker lifestyle that he and Ted have come to adopt.

“One of the difficult things I’m finding is teaching him to beatmatch aurally, as opposed to visually,” says Fowler. “It’s a visual beatmatch now.” Did I say young? They don’t come

any younger—Fowler’s understudy is 11 years old. He’s also Fowler’s son. In fact, he was named after Fowler’s DJ handle, “Justin Hale.” The younger Fowler now goes by Lil Justin. Both father and son will be spinning at the second annual South Bay Electronic Music Festival in Los Gatos on July 15. Justin Hale will be spinning on one stage, along with headliner Rick Preston, and a slew of other mostly local DJs, including DFunkt, Robbie Durham, Alonso Ordonez, J-Funk and Wona. Lil Justin will spin his own 30minute set on another stage, which will also feature headliner Ernesto Cruz, Smizzle, Gabriel Black, Audio Dru, DJ Peak, B Rich and D Leikam. What’s even more remarkable about Lil Justin’s story is that he already has two years of DJ experience under his belt. It started with dancing, popping and locking while his dad

DJed. First he was into the electrohouse sound. “Then one day he found dubstep. He never looked back. It was bass music all the way,” says Fowler. “He was 9. That’s when he first wanted to DJ.” Lil Justin made his public debut in 2010, at a party on a boat—not exactly how most grade-schoolers are spending their summer vacations. He picked and mixed all the tracks himself; the footage is on YouTube, and even then, he wasn’t too bad. It’s a bit ironic when Bassnectar’s “Bass Head” arrives three minutes or so in—to Lil Justin, Lorin Ashton is one of the most iconic DJs of his generation. To John Fowler, he’s a guy he used to bump into at the Cactus Club 15 years ago. Fowler has seen his son’s tastes and skills evolve quickly in just two years. Lil Justin became a devotee of glitch hop, which, although not totally unlike dubstep, is a lot more structured, and not nearly as forgiving to DJs as dubstep’s loose flow. “Watching Justin evolve from dustep to glitch hop was crazy,” says Fowler. “Now he’s got to beatmatch. He’s got to phrase, or it’ll sound funky.

It opened up an entire new world of mixing for him, because it required more. He had to step up.” And he did. Fowler has been impressed not only by his progress, but by his energy. “It took me years to get that kind of energy on the dance floor,” Fowler admits. “Once he gets on the decks, he’s into it. He’s moving his legs, he’s dancing. He’s breathing hard when he’s done.” For his part, EMF organizer Scott Rich, who’s been in the South Bay scene about as long as Fowler, had no hesitation booking an 11-year-old at his festival’s second go-around—especially after seeing Lil Justin at work at a smaller event. “It turned out to be such a hit,” says Rich. “I can imagine it blowing up with a crowd this big.” Rich has been hosting electronic events since his da days of renegade parties in wareho warehouses and parking lots in the early ’9 ’90s. But to him, the EMF is different even e from events that feature rooms ded dedicated to certain subgenres. At this festival, styles flow in and out freely ffrom one artist to the next—from ambi ambient to down-tempo to drum ’n’ bass, aand so on. “This show’s ab about unity in the electronic music scene,” he says. “It’s a good way for the house and techno guys to get to know the glitch and dubstep guys.” Unlike some old-school DJs, Fowler has happily embraced most of the changes in DJing over the years. But, however much he likes what his son spins, he knows he’s not going to suddenly go glitch. “I play house and techno. Always have. I’m not leaving the genre,” he says. But then, who knows what kind of influence his son will end up having on him. He says he’s already starting to get critiques. “He’ll be like, ‘Dad, you came in a little hot there,’” says Fowler. Despite their different styles, what he sees reflected in Lil Justin is devotion to the art form. “You show your passion, and it bleeds,” he says of being a DJ father. “It’s not a hobby. We live it.”

BARFLY

B\\g`e^@kC`m\ SATURDAY evening—Deafening riffs and distortion blast out at me from the stage where the Stone Roots strum their guitars. The trio belts out Americana hits without ceasing, only once pausing to down some whiskey shots sent over from the bar. I watch from the lounge of Quarter Note, a neighborhood bar in Sunnyvale that is unlike any I’ve visited. Quarter Note is different from the DJ-spun Top-40 nightclubs that fill most cities’ downtown areas; it’s rougher and less mainstream, yet is as American as apple pie. Quarter Note is a hard-rocking dive dedicated to original live music acts and offering musicbased entertainment every day of the week.

The Quarter Note 1214 Apollo Way, Sunnyvale

Instead of being a bar that just happens to have a stage, 408.732.2119 Quarter Note is a stage that happens to have a bar. Karaoke, jam sessions and gigs take place on the huge spot-lit stage, which sits prominently in the center of the room. Circled around the stage are the bar, small tables and booths, providing the perfect places to see the shows. The crowd is an older sort, appearance inspired by their music. The women wear tight jeans and spaghetti tops, while the men sport bushy goatees and wear large belt buckles and leather jackets. Despite their intimidating appearance, they seem amiable, greeting each other with hugs and pats on the back. Likewise, outsiders draw no ire. What matters is the music and all who come are united in their passion. After the Stone Roots finish their set, the Road Vikings enter the stage. Though the band is largely a Bay Area one, its frontman looks every bit the globe-trotting metal musician, with his leather vest, long hair, beard and sunglasses. With a metal scream, he launches into their set, supported on both sides by guitarists, fingers flying over their strings. The Barfly

Island Reggae Festival THE TERM “Island reggae” may seem redundant to those who associate it purely with Jamaica. But in fact, reggae is the adopted sound of islands all over the world. The headliner at this Sunday’s Island Reggae Festival in Santa Clara represents two of them just on his own. Born in Fiji and later adopting the name of his homeland as his standalone moniker, George Veikoso has actually lived most of his Great America life in Hawaii. What’s more, the man now known as Fiji Redwood is perhaps best known for singing “Sosefina,” the famous Amphitheatre traditional love song of yet another island nation, Samoa. It may all seem confusing at first, but in reality, Fiji (who Sun, July 8; will celebrate his 20th anniversary in music at the festival) 10am–10pm is the perfect headliner for this event. $30/$40 The IRF is not about “purity” or some kind of skankerthan-thou attitude, it’s about diversity, and the sheer breadth of the lineup is remarkable. Common Kings combine influences from their background in the South Pacific and SoCal, creating a hip, modern fusion sound that still recalls classic reggae and R&B. Reggae singer/songwriter Raymond Leger is of Samoan and Tongan decent, and influenced by the genre’s all-time greats. Zhen is also Polynesian, a multi-instrumentalist who grew up shuffling between California and Hawaii. One of the most interesting artists at this year’s festival, Vacano, actually grew up here in San Jose, before moving to San Diego, where he found his now trademark sound that effortlessly mixes hip-hop and reggae. Siaosi, Spawnbreezie, Native Elements and more will also perform; the South Bay’s DJ Nappy hosts.—Steve Palopoli

It was also an incident that has haunted SJ Patients Group, which opened in the same location under slightly new management. “They’re different directors, different owners,” says Amy Genovese, who runs SJ Patients

Group with her family on The Alameda in San Jose. “We’ve had to battle that stigma and it hurt the business tremendously for the first six months, because they were comparing us to the old company, which we’re not.” Two weeks ago, at the High Times Medical Cannabis Cup in Richmond, SJ Patients Group got a little redemption when the collective accepted an award for first place in the Indica category—the most sought after award—for its Cordero Platinum Kush. The strain is a pure OG Kush with trichomes that practically shimmer on the buds, giving the strain its “platinum” title. Cordero refers to the name of its grower. The heavy Indica is ideal for relieving pain and insomnia, which is especially necessary for cannabis patients suffering from cancer, AIDS, etc. “It’s almost like a combination of winning a Super Bowl and an Oscar,” Genovese says, “because it’s a once in a lifetime thing.” Elemental Wellness, Buddy’s Cannabis and Harborside Health Center also placed in the competition.

Bud Bill Update Assemblyman Tom Ammiano pulled AB 2312 last Monday, before it could be voted on by the state Senate. According to Ammiano’s senior legislative aide, Curtis Notisseh, the decision to pull the bill was made to buy more time to flesh out the details of a bill that would create a regulatory system for California’s massive medical marijuana industry. Ammiano plans to return to the bill after the legislative session adjourns in August. After narrowly passing through the Assembly in early June, the bill was sent to the Senate’s Businesses, Professions and Economic Committee. “We couldn’t identify enough support in that committee to move the bill forward,” Notisseh says of the decision to drop the bill. Ammiano asked the chair for more time after the committee noted a lack of detail in the bill’s language. Beginning this fall, the bill will go through what is called the sunrise process to identify, among other things, the appropriate form of regulation and which agency should be overseeing the new regulatory system.
