REAL PROBLEMS SANTA Cruz, you are amazing. You have everything you could ever want and more than you could ever need, yet you feel compelled to complain about poor people in your midst. Even to the point of avoiding downtown altogether. Bums win! Look: if the worst thing that happens on any given day is someone asks you for a quarter, well, you are truly blessed, dontcha know. So the next time you get the urge to

might prevent mobile businesses as well. There are some nondescript Mexican trucks in the southern part of SC. There is the Aunt LaLi ice cream truck. And we canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t not mention the pushcarts, which appear to be not permitted. You raise a good question as to why the craze has not been embraced by this area. Is it the people? Or perhaps the outdated rules of the govâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t and UCSC? I look forward to this discussion. Mac

WHEN DOES IT END? [RE: â&#x20AC;&#x153;RTC Weighs Ballot Measure for County Roads,â&#x20AC;? July 18]: Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to note the amount of money collected for road repair to date. I believe the amount taken out of property taxes is $56 per parcel per year. On top of that, 67.7 cents per gallon of gas (49.3 cents state, 18.4 cents fed) also gets collected for this purpose. Being that roads are high on the list of what citizens expect the government to maintain, the $56 figure is quite low. In my humble opinion, yes, $10 is not a lot, but when will asking for more money stop, and the inefficient, poor use of money by the government stop? Send government a message and reject this measure. Cut costs on programs that you do not want to pay for, and increase the $56 to around $250. And provide that all of the 67.7 cents per gallon go directly into an account for this purpose, with none going to government bureaucrats.

Gonella, founder and president of the Golden Gate Salmon Association. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a rare time. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re sitting here while our future is shaping up.â&#x20AC;?

Southern Stronghold

AGAINST THE TIDE Critics of the governorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plan for a canal around the Delta fear it would leave the estuaries too dry to support young salmon.

Delta Blues Can salmon survive the Peripheral Canal? BY ALASTAIR BLAND

C

CHINOOK salmon are abundant this year in one of the best seasons of local fishing memory, with sport and commercial fishermen reeling in easy boatloads of the most prized food and game fish on the Pacific Coast. Still, at least one conservation group warns that all this could change if state officials in Sacramento, now plotting the near future of Californiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s waterdevelopment infrastructure,

approve and build a large canal intended to deliver Sacramento River water to Southern California. The project has been tentatively called the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Peripheral Canalâ&#x20AC;? 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 Brownâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and the Golden Gate Salmon Association, based in Petaluma, wants to see the project halted before it destroys one of the West Coastâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest runs of Chinook salmon. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These are critical times, in the next year or two, for what the BayDelta and its salmon will look like for the rest of our lives,â&#x20AC;? says Victor

Chinook salmon spawn in many watersheds along the West Coast, as far north as Alaskaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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 f low 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 Sacramentoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s four distinct runs of salmon, to be between 300,000 and 400,000 fish. But 2009â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s record low of 39,000 spawners came after water pumping rates from the Delta jumped by 20 percent, to all-time high levels, from 2003 to 2006. Fishermen fear that the proposed canal is likely to cause an overall decrease in water-f low rates, causing a decline in salmon numbers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;[Gov.] Brown needs to scrap the Peripheral Canal until further notice,â&#x20AC;? says Mike Hudson, a commercial fisherman in Oakland. Hudson says the current fishing is as good as itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been in at least five years, but adds that he isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t confident about the future. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Along the entire West Coast we have managed to stop overfishing. Now, if we could only stop overfarming weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d have it made.â&#x20AC;?


7 CURRENTS

Young and Confused 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 f low 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 f low effect would no longer occur. But he says that a healthy salmon population requires a minimum amount of water f lowing through the Delta and out to sea. â&#x20AC;&#x153;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],â&#x20AC;? Moyle says. What makes Gonella at the Golden Gate Salmon Association nervous is that current plans for the canalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s construction include a 15,000 cubic foot 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 which

assures that recipients of the water could never turn the f low 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 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 the Sacramentoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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 cutsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;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 salmonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What [salmon] require is pretty simple,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sufficient cold water must f low 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.â&#x20AC;?

Be Not Deceived 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 Serviceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website, â&#x20AC;&#x153;protect, restore, and enhance fish, wildlife, and associated habitats in the Central Valley and Trinity River basins of California.â&#x20AC;? 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 fishesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; habitat. Gonella asserts that people must not be deceived by the summerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great salmon fishing into believing the fishery is healthy and stable. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re having a great year, and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re expecting a great year next year,â&#x20AC;? Gonella says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t realize that if we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get this right, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game over. The salmon will be gone.â&#x20AC;? 0

Girl Talk

An ambitious multimedia project, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Hidden World of Girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; is deeply rooted in personal stories about growing up female BY CHRISTINA WATERS

E63<7E/A/57@: Composer Clarice Assad says working on â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Hidden World of Girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; made her think of her own girlhood and how it shaped her life. The multimedia piece has its world premiere this weekend as part of the Cabrillo Festival of Contemporary Music.

Hidden World of Girls: Stories for Orchestra is a sensory invention of sound, light, story and music involving the combined gifts of two storytellers, one creative director, four composers, one conductor, vocalists, instrumentalists and a digital design team. The project emerged from a PBS series developed by the Kitchen Sistersâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;oral anthropologists Nikki Silva and Davia Nelsonâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;who gathered the coming-of-age stories of girls from the four corners of the globe. In a conversation with the Weekly, Silva, who lives in La Selva Beach, recalls how it all began. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It all grew out of a Creative Work Fund grant,â&#x20AC;? she remembers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A couple of years ago Cabrillo had asked us to apply for the funding for a future project that would involve artists from different disciplines.â&#x20AC;? The result is the Kitchen Sistersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; collaborative â&#x20AC;&#x153;stories for orchestraâ&#x20AC;? for the Festivalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 50th anniversary. It has been, Silva says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;a fun and joyful thing to do.â&#x20AC;? The subject of girls and girlhood is rich, to say the leastâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; interesting enough to catch the attention of Tina Fey, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hosted two hour-long specials for the radio version of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hidden World of Girls.â&#x20AC;? Interview subjects for the series including trailblazing girls and women of all stripes: the first female Olympic boxers, an octogenarian radio host in Uruguay, New Wave icon Patti Smith. For such complex subject matter, a lushly textured, multimedia approach seems appropriate. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think much has been done for symphonic orchestra that includes audio and radio,â&#x20AC;? Silva says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re beginning to see more and more experiments involving symphonic orchestra and multimedia, but I think the idea of live orchestra and visuals merging with radio and narrative storytelling seems exciting and unexpected.â&#x20AC;? With composer Laura Karpman underscoring all the stories, composers Clarice Assad, Alexandra du Bois and Nora KrollRosenbaum came to listen to the stories and began writing their own symphonic compositions. San Franciscoâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;based Obscura Digital, which counts among its digital installation clients Google, NASA and the United Arab Emirates, is doing the imagery for the evening. ¨

@/27=4@33A7AB3@AThe Kitchen Sisters, Nikki Silva (left) and Davia Nelson, on break from the studio For the Cabrillo world premiere, the journey is global. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be hearing from women from the Sahara and their rituals and music, and then to Ireland to hear about the Travellers,â&#x20AC;? says Silva, referring to the nomadic ethnic Irish who maintain separate language and traditions. She says she thinks of these narrative strands as â&#x20AC;&#x153;coming-ofage ceremonies and portraits.â&#x20AC;? Each of these stories, she confesses, was discovered thanks to a tip. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As we did with our other NPR series (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hidden Kitchens,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lost and Found Sound,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sonic Memorialâ&#x20AC;?), we opened up a phone line on NPR and asked listeners to share their ideas of hidden worlds of girls,â&#x20AC;? says Silva. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Involving the community in the storytelling process has led to so many incredibly rich narrativesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; stories we might never have come across otherwise.â&#x20AC;?

Global Gathering The episode â&#x20AC;&#x153;Brave Heart Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Society,â&#x20AC;? featured as part of the Cabrillo performance, was inspired by a phone message from Brook Spotted Eagle, who called to tell Silva and Nelson about a coming-of-age ritual on South Dakotaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Yankton Sioux reservation. (Brookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mother, Faith Spotted Eagle, will be part of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Stories Behind the Storiesâ&#x20AC;? forum on Sunday at 3:30.) Another tells the story of Pat Cadigan, well-known cyberpunk and sci-fi writer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We chose the stories we did,â&#x20AC;? Silva

recalls, â&#x20AC;&#x153;because the characters compelled us and the ideas and arc of the story were revealingâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and often unexpected.â&#x20AC;? Visuals count more than one might think. While the Kitchen Sisters deal in radio sagas, Silva says imagery is always a consideration. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think Davia and I both think of ourselves as making moviesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;stories you can visualize and imagine through voices, sound and music.â&#x20AC;? One of the musical episodes, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Hidden World of Traveller Girls,â&#x20AC;? was inspired by a photograph of a housing development for Irish Travellers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It caught our eye. We knew nothing about Travellers and were just beginning to gather stories for â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Hidden World,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Silva recalls. After a visit to a Traveller settlement, the story emerged. The radio version features a riveting interview with a young mother of two adjusting to life in a â&#x20AC;&#x153;halt,â&#x20AC;? or government settlement. She and her family still prefer to sleep in their caravan. The composers selected have woven these stories into their compositions, which are then â&#x20AC;&#x153;all woven together with Lauraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s music,â&#x20AC;? Silva explains. What began as an aural collection of rites of passage has â&#x20AC;&#x153;evolved into a project with women composers, each bringing their interpretation of the stories and their own experiences and hidden worlds to the project.â&#x20AC;? The composersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; personal stories are fascinating in themselves. Says Brazilian-born Clarice Assad of her upbringing in the politically turbulent 1980s, a time when her rebellious motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s constant quarreling with her dictatorial grandmother seemed to reflect the greater social unrest: â&#x20AC;&#x153;The fights, the yelling, the combats filled the air daily. And, because of the vast size of the family, it was impossible, as a child, to be heard. â&#x20AC;Ś At some point I became so frustrated, I stopped talking altogether and just started to sing. From this point forward, whenever I felt conflict was about to arise, I would make music.â&#x20AC;?

Still Cookinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; The Kitchen Sisters started at KUSP in 1979, gathering oral history interviews and doing a live weekly radio program. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were both


11 Calloway, Tom Waits, lullabies and work songs thrown in. Our style of storytelling really grew out of those early years of experimenting at KUSP.â&#x20AC;? When a friend sent in one of their stories, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Road Ranger,â&#x20AC;? to a new radio syndicate called ¨

Sculpting Soundscape Laura Karpmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rĂŠsumĂŠ looks like the result of a life without downtime. The genrebending lead composer for Hidden World of Girls has been nominated for four Emmys for her sci-fi television scores and written music for video games, film, opera, string quartets and world premiere commissions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I definitely do collaboration,â&#x20AC;? Karpman says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All of these concert music pieces Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done lately B7;7<57A3D3@GB67<5Lead â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Hidden so profoundly draw from World of Girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; composer Laura Karpman my work as a film composer. says her understanding of drama helped her with this project. Even the really technical stuff came directly from the TV work.â&#x20AC;? Hidden World made new demands on the lead composer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For a piece like thisâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;unlike scoring for filmâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;we couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have music running the whole time, so I would spot the music, which means figure out when it was needed, and where, and then add it.â&#x20AC;? What Hidden World audiences will experience, as Karpman describes it, will be two layers of pre-recorded sound: voices speaking and sound effects, which can be bits of music, pre-recorded sound and source music. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Then there are musical pieces Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m composing on top of that.â&#x20AC;? Fundamentally, she says, this project â&#x20AC;&#x153;takes radio and explodes it into a live setting.â&#x20AC;? As with the stories themselves, the music evolved from the individuals. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The way we did Girls was to compose on samplers,â&#x20AC;? she continues. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We listened to the stories, then the directors and collaborators would make suggestions.â&#x20AC;? One of Karpmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pieces is in response to Debra Lusterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s photographs in southern jails. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Her photos transcend and transform oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opinion of the place and people. I used [folklorist and ethnomusicologist] Alan Lomax recordings to build on, and then thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the actual stories as well.â&#x20AC;? Karpman predicts, â&#x20AC;&#x153;It will be a serious listening experience.â&#x20AC;? When asked what special skill she provides that has made her in such demand, Karpman pauses, then answers, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Probably drama. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something I feel Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve honed after working so long on commercial projects. I know what is needed, when, and how long things should last.â&#x20AC;? She believes there will be more opportunities for women to compose symphonic and operatic works â&#x20AC;&#x153;when there are more role models. That will help to inspire more women to think in these larger terms. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the same issue as in every field.â&#x20AC;? Karpmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own workâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and composing historyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;will doubtless trigger more than a few emerging careers, hidden worlds of girls that will blossom on larger, public stages. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Christina Waters

NPR, their careers were born. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We did our live show until the early 1980s. That was our test tube. Then we did pieces on NPRâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been so amazingly lucky to work with NPR and to do these stories,â&#x20AC;? she says. Shortly after September 11, 2001, as part of the Kitchen Sistersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lost & Found Soundâ&#x20AC;? series then airing on NPR, they brought together a national collaboration of radio producers, artists, historians and public radio stations nationwide to collect and preserve the stories and sounds of the World Trade Center and its neighborhood. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We opened up a phone line with NPR and asked listeners to contribute their voicemails, home recordings and remembrances to this effort to create a kind of sonic memorial,â&#x20AC;? Silva says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hundreds called in with their stories. These recordings, along with interviews gathered by radio producers across the country, were broadcast on NPR during the year following the attack.â&#x20AC;?

The Wow Factor Marin Alsop on the festival that celebrates â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;the wacky and the wonderfulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and why sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s completely satisfied INTERVIEW BY CHRISTINA WATERS AO\bO1`chESSYZg(7abVS #bVO\\WdS`aO`gO\W[^]`bO\b PS\QV[O`Y;O`W\/Za]^( It is, of course, a

milestone season for the festival, and it deserves to be celebrated. I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interesting to think of a new festival that has a real history, not simply a tradition. Maybe â&#x20AC;&#x153;legacyâ&#x20AC;? is more what I mean. Some of what we will performâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the Carlos Chavez and the Lou Harrisonâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;will be an opportunity for us all to reminisce together about that legacy, being secure and proud in what we are. This festival is the go-to place

for new composers. The vitality of our creativity thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going on hereâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;it embraces the weird and the wonderful. It wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be the festival it is any other place. /`SbVS`S^O`bWQcZO`QVOZZS\USaW\ ^`]U`O[[W\UT]`bVWaTSabWdOZ-

Well, it involves a different paradigm. The assumption is that people who come here are adventurous. The musicians are adventurous, the audience comes because theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re adventurous. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing it because ¨ "

they want the unexpected. Even new music can get dull. Not only the quality of music but also the quality of the experience as a whole. This festival is about the creative process, not simply an experience. We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t put ourselves in a box. 7abVS`SO\]cbQ][Sg]c¸RZWYS b]aSS-

I want people to be able to say, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ah! I never expected to hear that,â&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;Surprising!â&#x20AC;? I want it to be unique, to stimulate thinking in a new way. And in the music, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m looking for an emotional payoff. I want to be moved by art. I have to have an emotional reaction. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s my measuring stick, and not merely a gratuitous â&#x20AC;&#x153;wowâ&#x20AC;? factor, although I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mind â&#x20AC;&#x153;wow.â&#x20AC;? EVS\ZWabS\W\UT]`Tcbc`S ^`]U`O[aeVObR]g]cZ]]YT]`-

The potential of the composer is something I look for. If they are young composers, emerging composers, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m looking for their future potential, how their work might develop. If established, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m looking for a unique voice, a unique point of view. Art has the capacity to capture shared moments, shared histories that other types of experience donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the ability to capture. Poetry, art, music speaks to

shared humanityâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the essence of humanity, I guess. 6]eRWR¡6WRRS\E]`ZR¸Q][S OP]cb-

Nikki and I started talking about it two summers ago. It was a natural idea. Just like the Frans Lanting collaboration. They see in the festival a shared commitment to creativity. So I thought, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s talk.â&#x20AC;? We began talking, and gradually it became a work in progress. Then Laura Karpman came into it and really pulled it all together. It does have a lot of different moving parts, but I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a prescribed outcome. 5WdS\bVSbV`SS]`QVSab`Oag]c RW`SQbWag]c`^ZObSTcZZ-

Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d say the plate is full [laughing]â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but not just in the sense that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m very busy. I feel that all my artistic interests are being fed. Baltimore is a major orchestra with great traditional repertoire. Cabrillo is where I can be experimental, where I can be completely wacky. And SĂŁo Paolo is a new, emerging place. It is the future, both artistically and economically. Given all of that, I feel completely satisfied. Maybe I wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always feel that, but for now, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great. And I have time to be with my 8-year-old son. Life is good. 0

CHRIS WEBSTER & NINA GERBER

MEKLIT HADERO

HAMSA LILA

Drawing comparisons to Joni Mitchell, Nina Simone and Norah Jones, the Ethiopian-born, San Franciscoâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;based Meklit Hadero is graced with a magnificent voice, a songwriterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s heart and a dynamic delivery that floats from note to note like a butterfly on a lazy summerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s day. Imbued with the emotion of soul, the timing of jazz, the storytelling of the blues and the humanness of global folk music, Hadero creates songs that are unique and personal. Kuumbwa; $20 adv/$23 door; 7pm. (CJ)

Sometimes music does more than entertain, it heals. World trance funk group Hamsa Lila strives to do just that as it plunges listeners into a new world full of ancient rhythms and timeless grooves. Their performances are enhanced with spoken word, velvety harmonies, ritual dance and a few rare, goat-gutâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;stringed traditional instruments. And because they only perform at a handful of events each year, each Hamsa Lila experience is potent, organic and unique. Moeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Alley; $16 adv/$20 door; 9pm. (Lily Stoicheff)

Chris Webster entered the spotlight as vocalist and multi-instrumentalist for the good-time party band Mumbo Gumbo, but a string of solo albums have secured her rep as an adept artist who can take on torch songs, ballads, bluegrass and folk-rock with style and charm. Guitarist Nina Gerber is one of Northern Californiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great musical talents. An accompanist who has played alongside Kate Wolf, Greg Brown, Nanci Griffith, Peter Rowan and many others, she is a natural musician who makes her masterful playing look effortless. Don Quixoteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s; $17 adv/$20 door; 7:30pm. (Cat Johnson)

A FLOCK OF SEAGULLS While A Flock of Seagullsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; claim to fame is the 1982 hit single â&#x20AC;&#x153;I Ran (So Far Away),â&#x20AC;? the British bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s contributions to the pop canon extend beyond their career-making song. Early entrants to the New Wave scene, the band influenced numerous other â&#x20AC;&#x2122;80s bands and trends with its synth-driven sound, sci-fi themes and, perhaps most memorably, the signature winged hairstyle worn by frontman Mike Score. Taking on a cult following of its own, the iconic â&#x20AC;&#x2122;do has been referenced in Pulp Fiction, The Wedding Singer, The Daily Show and more. Sharing the bill is U.S. synth-pop outfit Animotion. Beach Boardwalk; free; 6:30 & 8:30pm. (CJ)

GRANDMOTHERS OF INVENTION

ALBERT LEE BAND

Playing the music of Frank Zappa is not as easy as, say, sitting down and playing a cover of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Leaving On a Jet Plane.â&#x20AC;? His compositions are thick, textured, quirky and at times hard to pin down. So who better to bring the late Rock and Roll Hall of Famerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s music back to the stage than the people who played it with him the first time around? Made up of original members and alumni of Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention, the Grandmothers of Invention revel in the genre-blending style, uninhibited selfexpression and onstage experimentation that made Zappa and the Mothers one of rockâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most inimitable acts. Moeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Alley; $22 adv/$25 door; 9pm. (CJ)

Joao Weiner

Big K.R.I.T.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hip-hop career went from zero to 60 within a few months in 2009, but the Mississippi native had been preparing for that moment since he was 12. Working a vein of traditional Southern rap, K.R.I.T. counts Pimp MC, T.I. and B.I.G. as influences, but isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t raising himself in their image. The respected rookie insists on remaining an individual identity and delivering

feel-good beats with a message instead of just stringing a slew of hits together. His tracks stand on their own, leaving few doubts in the minds of critics and fans alike that the King Remembered In Timeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reign will continue to rise. Catalyst; $15 adv/$19 door; 9pm. (LS)

aloha spirit. When heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not decorating his home with Grammys and Hoku Awards for his slack key guitar playing, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s teaching art and music, maintaining his three-acre Maui farm and passing out bundles of fresh produce to friends and students. Kahumokuâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s music embodies the cultural richness of the Islands, and his famed collaborations with fellow artists have garnered much critical acclaim. His earthy vocals and unique 12-string slack key sound are a fresh island breeze here on the mainland. Don Quixoteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s; $17 adv/$20 door; 7pm. (LS)

MONDAY | 7/30

LUISA MAITA With roots that extend deep into the heart of traditional Brazilian music and a future-forward embrace of contemporary urban, pop and electronic influences, Luisa Maita has established herself as a musical ambassador to the world. Hailed by NPR as the â&#x20AC;&#x153;new voice of Brazil,â&#x20AC;? the Sao Paoloâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;born Maita began her professional music career singing advertising jingles at age 7. These days Maita is known for wrapping her sultry, soulful voiceâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;which has garnered her comparisons to Sade, Billie Holiday, Feist and Cat Powerâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;around her own songs, which are steeped heavily in the syncopation of samba, the cool stylings of bossa nova and the spirit of life in Brazil today.

C1A14O`[. Pruning is one of those dicey gardening chores that can make or break your carefully tended fruit trees. The lecture and demonstration workshop will focus on getting people familiar with when and how to summer prune, which differs significantly from the more familiar winter pruning. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Summer pruning can be used to control the size and shape of an overly vigorous tree, making it easier to harvest and increasing production,â&#x20AC;? Sutton reminds us. Good to know. During the workshop, Sutton will also discuss after-

harvest care to prepare your trees for fall and the coming dormant period The workshop is $30 general, $20 for members of the Friends of the UCSC Farm & Garden and $5 for UCSC students, payable the day of the class (check or cash only).
