While the styles may differ, every band plays exciting, danceable music, so get out there!

DRUMMING UP SUPPORT FOR SCHOOL MUSIC Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith credits school music programs for his musical career.

Beat the Drum CHAD SMITH never took private music lessons. He didn’t have the luxury. The Red Hot Chili Peppers percussionist picked up drumming first at age 7 on a makeshift kit of Baskin-Robbins ice cream cartons, then at 9 in Michigan public schools, learning the art in every music class on the roster: marching band, symphonic band, jazz band, you name it. “I’m a living, breathing example of the value of a public music education,” says the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and father of five who this spring went to Washington D.C. to lobby on behalf arts funding for public schools. That’s why Smith, 51, so looks forward to performing at Drum! Night, a charity event that supports the Lincoln High School music program, this Friday at the San Jose Repertory Theatre. The event, hosted by Drum! Magazine, boasts a lineup that includes the Street Drum Corps, Lenny Kravitz drummer Cindy Blackman-Santana, and Jason Bittner of Shadows Fall and Anthrax. The performances and workshops will be accompanied by a gear expo, silent auction and a raffle.

Drum! Night 5-10pm Friday San Jose Repertory Theatre, 101 Paseo De San Antonio, San Jose $20-$40 408.971.9794 or drum-night

Smith says he’ll play on the main stage, talk, perform, collaborate with other drummers, improvise some, and play along to some pre-recorded tracks from his bands Chickenfoot and the Chili Peppers, which plans to release their 11th studio album in 2014. “It’s interesting to experience drums without all the other stuff going on,” says Smith of Friday’s drum-fest. “The audience gets to talk to us and ask questions, so it’s a really unique type of performance. It’ll be a long night of a lot of banging and loud noises.” Hopefully that intimacy will give people a sense of what drives him, Smith says. “I hope to show people that music is fun and they’ll think that, ‘Hey, this guy really loves what he does and he’s passionate about it … he’s not weird, fucked up or high,’” he says. “I’m just lucky enough to have discovered early on something I love to do.” Drum clinics like the one in San Jose this week hold a special place in Smith’s heart because he gets to hang out with other drummers, a rare, strange breed: a little nerdy, a little eccentric. “We’re kind of weird,” says Smith. “We like to celebrate our weirdness together. We like to meet up and share ideas with no egos involved. There’s a real sense of camaraderie amongst the guys in the back. I’m very proud to be part of that.”— Jennifer Wadsworth

DAMON, HEAL THYSELF Max (Matt Damon), struck by quickly spreading cancer, has five days to escape the disease-ridden slum that is Earth and find a way to get to the orbiting utopia, Elysium, where he can be cured.

Satellite of Hate HUGELY LEFT-WING parables don’t come along every day. Elysium’s healthcare reform allegory is so strident that all the hacks in the Hoover Institute, working in tandem, couldn’t produce an essay that deliberately misinterpreted this movie as an anti-government, freeenterprise lauding epic. Elysium’s problem isn’t that a bird can’t fly on only one left wing, though— despite some of the best future/third world landscapes this side of Children of Men, it’s graceless and blocky. Director Neill Blomkamp seems completely dead to wit. Max (as in Mad Max), is Matt Damon, a denizen of Los Angeles 2154, which looks like the worst of Mexico City. A felon on parole, he suffers first (robot) police brutality, then a severe (and unlikely) industrial accident, Max is sent by a criminal overlord on a suicide mission to Elysium, an orbiting satellite that hangs in the sky like a corporate logo. There, the hyper-rich live in a state that must mimic immortality. They are the jealous guardians of those automatic surgery tubes (as in Prometheus) that can cure everything up to and including cancer. By amazing coincidence Max runs into an old childhood sweetheart (Alice Braga) who has reasons of her own for wanting to get to this fabulous off-world colony.

Elysium has problems: rocket-loads of boat people, arriving to be dealt with by Homeland Security. The head of that department is the ornery Delacorte ( Jodie Foster). Class war brews, but Elysium Blomkamp (District 9) backs off from the ultimate Rated R; battle. We get fight scenes 109 min. and explosions, shot in the Hong Kong-in-decline style, Opens Fri either too fast or too slow. Blomkamp is relentless in cutting away from action to something preposterously calmer; he has a serious talent for killing the tension. Foster, dressing down the Elysium elite in what sounds like a Margaret Thatcher accent, seems ready for a mad-scientist speech. We wait in vain for the confrontation between her and Max. Damon is a buff, bland action hero, but the poor people have such unimpeachable reasons for their squalor and the rich people are so coldly formal. You wish for the dirty fun Paul Verhoeven would have had in his RoboCop days, making the former riotous and the latter shamelessly decadent.—Richard von Busack

SO FUNKDAFIED The sweet and savory combo of chicken and waffles from Farmer Brown’s Little Skillet pairs perfectly with Ivan Neville’s Dumpstaphunk.

Musical Feast SAN FRANCISCO’S Outside Lands Music Festival has earned a reputation for bringing some of the biggest names in music to Golden Gate Park and recruiting some of the best restaurants and food trucks San Francisco has to offer to feed attendees. This year, the sold-out festival welcomes Paul McCartney, Nine Inch Nails and Red Hot Chili Peppers as headliners Aug. 9-11, with more than 50 other acts performing on six stages throughout the weekend. We’ve paired some of the bands performing this year with some of our favorite menu items at the festival.

NINE INCH NAILS WITH PORK BELLY BURGER FROM BIG CHEF TOM’S BELLY BURGERS Connection: A dark, complex band bursting with energy meets a complex burger bursting with flavor. RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS WITH SPICY PORK FRIES FROM BACON BACON Connection: A band that brings the heat, in performance and name, with a dish that does the same. IVAN NEVILLE’S DUMPSTAPHUNK WITH CHICKEN AND WAFFLES FROM FARMER BROWN’S LITTLE SKILLETConnection: There’s something inherently funky about the chicken and waffles from Farmer Brown’s Little Skillet—syrupy with a hot sauce kick and a side of cornbread to mop it all up—and Ivan Neville’s Dumpstaphunk is about as funky as it gets on the bill this year at Outside Lands. BAAUER WITH GOURMET FUNNEL CAKES FROM ENDLESS SUMMER TREATS Connection: The man behind “Harlem Shake” grew up in Pennsylvania, where the popular festival item was first introduced. Tip: Don’t attempt to eat while doing the “Harlem Shake.” WILLIE NELSON WITH GRILLED CHEESE SANDWICH FROM AMERICAN GRILLED CHEESE KITCHEN Connection: An American music classic meets an American food classic. VAMPIRE WEEKEND WITH ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK PIZZA Connection: New York’s reigning champs of indie rock with San Francisco’s best attempt at New York pizza. ZEDD WITH BRATWURST FROM ROSAMUNDE SAUSAGE GRILL Connection: Zedd was raised in Germany, famous for its wonderful sausages. Rosamunde is just about as good as it gets in San Francisco. KURT VILE AND THE VIOLATORS WITH PHILADELPHIA CHEESESTEAKS FROM EARTHLY DELIGHTS Connection: Mellow stoner rock from Philly paired with a hearty stoner meal (also from the City of Brotherly Love) from a festival regular with a very mellow name. —Matt Crawford Keith Mizuguchi contributed to this report.

ALWAYS KNOW WHAT’S HAPPENING For 15 years SF Station has been San Francisco’s premiere city guide to the best in Arts & Entertainment. SF Station is the place for locals to find out what’s happening tonight, tomorrow and beyond. Find us on Facebook & Twitter

FREE WILL ASTROLOGY ARIES (March 21-April 19): "You have to participate relentlessly in the manifestation of your own blessings," says author Elizabeth Gilbert. I recommend that you experiment with this subversive idea, Aries. Just for a week, see what happens if you devote yourself to making yourself feel really good. I mean risk going to extremes as you pursue happiness with focused zeal. Try this: Draw up a list of experiences that you know will give you intense pleasure, and indulge in them all without apology. And please don’t fret about the possible consequences of getting crazed with joy. Be assured that the cosmos is providing you with more slack than usual. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): “I am not washed

and beautiful, in control of a shining world in which everything fits,” writes Taurus author Annie Dillard, “but instead am wandering awed about on a splintered wreck I’ve come to care for, whose gnawed trees breathe a delicate air.” I recommend you try on her perspective for size. For now, just forget about scrambling after perfection. At least temporarily, surrender any longing you might have for smooth propriety. Be willing to live without neat containment and polite decorum. Instead, be easy and breezy. Feel a generous acceptance for the messy beauty you’re embedded in. Love your life exactly as it is, with all of its paradoxes and mysteries.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Studies show that when Artwork by Michael Wertz

you’re driving a car, your safest speed is five miles per hour higher than the average rate of traffic. Faster than that, though, and the danger level rises. Traveling more slowly than everyone else on the road also increases your risk of having an accident. Applying these ideas metaphorically, I’d like to suggest you take a similar approach as you weave your way through life’s challenges in the coming week. Don’t dawdle and plod. Move a little swifter than everyone else, but don’t race along at a breakneck pace.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): The key theme this

week is *relaxed intensification.* Your assignment, should you choose to accept it, is to heighten and strengthen your devotion to things that are important to you—but in ways that make you feel more serene and self-possessed. To accomplish this, you will have to ignore the conventional wisdom, which falsely asserts that going deeper and giving more of yourself require you to increase your stress levels. You do indeed have a great potential for going deeper and giving more of yourself, but only if you also become more at peace with yourself and more at home in the world.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Last year a young Nebraskan entrepreneur changed his name from Tyler Gold to Tyrannosaurus Rex Gold. He said it was a way of giving him greater name recognition as he worked to build his career. Do you have any interest in making a bold move like that, Leo? The coming weeks would be a good time for you to think about adding a new twist to your nickname or title or self-image. But I recommend something less sensationalistic and more in line with the qualities you’d actually like to cultivate in the future. I’m thinking of something like Laughing Tiger or Lucky Lion or Wily Wildcat. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): African-American jazz

singer Billie Holiday was the great-granddaughter of a slave. By the time she was born in 1915, black people in the American South were no longer “owned” by white “masters,” but their predicament was still extreme. Racism was acute and debilitating. Here’s what Billie wrote in her autobiography: “You can be up to your boobies in white satin, with gardenias in your hair and no sugar cane for miles, but you can still be working on a plantation.” Nothing you experience is remotely as oppressive as what Billie experienced, Virgo. But I’m wondering if you might suffer from a milder version of it. Is any part of you oppressed and inhibited even though your outward circumstances are technically unconstrained? If so, now’s the time to push for more freedom.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): What resounding triumphs and subtle transformations have you accomplished since your last birthday? How have you grown and changed? Are there any ways you have dwindled or drooped? The next few weeks will be an excellent time to take inventory

By ROB BREZSNY week of August 7

of these things. Your own evaluations will be most important, of course. You’ve got to be the ultimate judge of your own character. But you should also solicit the feedback of people you trust. They may be able to help you see clues you’ve missed. If, after weighing all the evidence, you decide you’re pleased with how your life has unfolded these past ten to eleven months, I suggest you celebrate your success. Throw yourself a party or buy yourself a reward or climb to the top of a mountain and unleash a victory cry.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Monmouth Park in New

Jersey hosts regular horse races from May through November. During one such event in 2010, a horse named Thewifenoseeverything finished first, just ahead of another nag named Thewifedoesntknow. I suspect that there’ll be a comparable outcome in your life sometime soon. Revelation will trump secrecy. Whoever is hiding information will lose out to anyone who sees and expresses the truth. I advise you to bet on the option that’s forthcoming and communicative, not the one that’s furtive and withholding.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You have both a poetic and a cosmic license to stretch yourself further. It’s best not to go too far, of course. You should stop yourself before you obliterate all boundaries and break all taboos and smash all precedents. But you’ve certainly got the blessings of fate if you seek to disregard some boundaries and shatter some taboos and outgrow some precedents. While you’re at it, you might also want to shed a few pinched expectations and escape an irrelevant limitation or two. It’s time to get as big and brave and brazen as you dare. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): When I was 19,

a thug shot me in the butt with a shotgun at close range. To this day, my body contains the 43 pellets he pumped into me. They have caused some minor health problems, and I’m always queasy when I see a gun. But I don’t experience any routine suffering from the wound. Its original impact no longer plagues me. What’s your own personal equivalent of my trauma, Capricorn? A sickness that racked you when you were young? A difficult break-up with your first love? The death of someone you cared about? Whatever it was, I suspect you now have the power to reach a new level of freedom from that old pain.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Want to take full

advantage of the sexy vibes that are swirling around in your vicinity? One thing you could do is whisper the following provocations in the ear of anyone who would respond well to a dose of boisterous magic: 1) “Corrupt me with your raw purity, baby; beguile me with your raucous honesty.” 2) “I finally figured out that one of the keys to eternal happiness is to be easily amused. Want me to show you how that works?” 3) “I dare you to quench my thirst for spiritual sensuality.” 4) “Let’s trade clothes and pretend we’re each other’s higher selves.”

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Some people put their

faith in religion or science or political ideologies. English novelist J.G. Ballard placed his faith elsewhere: in the imagination. “I believe in the power of the imagination to remake the world,” he wrote, “to release the truth within us, to hold back the night, to transcend death, to charm motorways, to ingratiate ourselves with birds, to enlist the confidences of madmen.” As you make your adjustments and reconfigure your plans, Pisces, I suggest you put your faith where Ballard did. Your imagination is far more potent and dynamic than you realize—especially right now.
