Rhapsodies The Breaks

Area favorite DJ Lazyboy faces surgery BY EVAN ‘TRUTHLIVE’ PHILLIPS

I

have a friend whose name is Greg, but most know him as DJ Lazyboy. Without a doubt, he is easily one of the most talented, hardworking and creative DJs I’ve ever met—and I am friends with some of the best and most skilled DJs in the world. But more importantly, he is one of the gentlest, kindest and most inspiring people I know. The thing is, Greg has some serious medical issues. To put it in simple terms, he survived a rare variation of an aggressive cancer (stage IV squamous cell carcinoma originating in his nasal pharynx) many years ago. However, as a result of the even more aggressive life-saving treatment, he now has a degenerative bone disease from the massive amounts of radiation to his neck and head, which causes him great pain and makes it almost impossible for him to eat. And it’s getting worse. He has only nine patrial teeth left (for now). Aside from the health aspects, which are life-threatening, Greg’s career suffers because of the way this makes him look. I know people pass on hiring him because they think he is a drug addict. This man, who is so often joyful, won’t even open his mouth to smile in public because of the judgment he is forced to endure. It’s heartbreaking. He deserves better. Furthermore, I have never heard him complain about this once. Never. It makes me tear up to think about it as I type this. He has only demonstrated a positive attitude any and every time we have discussed it, even when oral surgeon after oral surgeon said there was nothing that could be done. Fortunately, after so many closed doors, he has found an option, albeit a highly dangerous and expensive option. The procedure is very dangerous—life-threatening, to be more accurate—but Greg is willing to take the chance to live a higher quality life, and we too must be willing to take the chance with him. I trust once people are familiar with his story, they will do what they can. You can find more about Greg’s story and help contribute to a fundraiser for his medical costs at www.bohemian.com.

Tom Sawyer Days I read your article about the redwood tree removal on Airport Boulevard and the sale of taxpayers’ trees for the company’s profit (“Deadwood Hwy.,” Jan. 30). That money should be at work patching the potholes or employing someone. Instead, the owner of Ghilotti Bros. is already planning that vacation or new car. I grew up along Mark West Creek when they built the freeway. My brother and I used to fish that creek for trout, steelhead, blue gill, turtles, frogs, toads, salamanders, crawdads—it was all there, like Tom Sawyer. Then they built the freeway and Wikiup, and after a few years of construction the creek changed. Now water flow is blocked and swimming holes are dried up to be little more than moss-covered ponds. Vineyards stealing water resources, new construction and now the theft of the taxpayers’ trees—all thanks to officials who did not grow up in Sonoma County. Thanks for your armed robbery without a gun, only with profit in mind.

Cool Down, Man Reading your letters edition, I was blown away by the radical letters from J. B. Grant and Moss Henry. Obviously these people don’t like the government or President Obama. (I like the president, but I don’t like the war we’re in.) J. B. Grant takes the Ron Paul copout that violence overseas brings violence here—jive! Moss Henry: whistleblowers, torture—please! Are you guys men or are you babies? You remind me of a bunch of Republicans. Raids on pot clubs, the war in Afghanistan—those things I could complain about, but this other stuff is nonsense. I like Obama. He is cool. You other guys are crybabies, radicals and malcontents.

Grow up, people. Would you rather have Romney running the country? I think not.

Funny Valentine I told my girlfriend the other day, “Love is but lonely voids. Baby, I know it sounds weird and super emo, but I heard even Einstein believed love was empty space. To exist in space is to be lonely. To exist in space is to be in love. You wouldn’t be lonely if you didn’t need love. You wouldn’t be in love if you weren’t lonely. Lonely love = ‘lovely’ forever and everywhere always . . . even when we’re assholes about it.” Stars undulate, giving birth to each other, filling empty space for the loneliness of it all. But I feel bad sometimes, feverishly questioning everything worth believing in, out of fear for the loneliness of it all. Shit’s cold up there between warm bodies. She gets scared at things I say, and I can’t blame her. Things like, “Love may be an abstract neurosis beyond the necessity for survival” and “I wonder if the planets ever feel like they’re being held hostage.” Or even, “Love is but lonely voids.” I’m aware that sometimes I fill the aforementioned empty space with stonejaded plugs of an asshole. But please print this so she knows how much I love her, empty spaces and all.

Historic Past I am not eager for the development of Sonoma into a resort destination and wine country theme park. (Even though many citizens might argue we are already beyond the tipping point.) The proposed luxury hotel brings us closer to the selling of the town, the plaza for profit, not for the people who live and work here. Perhaps a better vision for Sonoma is one that takes pride in our historic past, our beloved plaza and a community rooted in agriculture. An authentic place, not “branded” to enrich investors.

PASS IT ON Don McLeod outside Rancho San Miguel, where residents are shouldering a property-tax increase for the new owners.

Mobile Morass

Residents of rent-controlled senior mobile home park wrestle with sudden monthly hike BY NICOLAS GRIZZLE

S

ome residents of rent-controlled Santa Rosa mobile-home park Rancho San Miguel are crying foul over a $42 monthly increase levied on tenants by new owners Rutherford Investments. “[We] pleaded that the increase would cause significant financial hardship on our residents, and we

hoped Rutherford would make concessions accordingly,” says Don McLeod, president of the park’s homeowners association. Rutherford, which has offices in Mill Valley and Los Gatos, purchased Rancho San Miguel in April of 2012. The property’s value was reassessed when sold, and subsequently the property taxes for the park increased. That increased tax burden is being passed on to residents.

At a meeting with park owners, residents and city officials in December, it was determined that the owners are within their legal rights to pass the new cost on to residents. “Before we ever went in to pass this through, we made a point of meeting with [residents] and contacting them,” says Greg O’Hagan, one of the park’s managers. Under the rent-control ordinance, landowners are

allowed only a 2.8 percent annual increase in rent. But the ordinance also allows owners to pass along “any new or increase in government mandated capital expenditures and operating expenses, including taxes.” McLeod’s dispute lies in the hardship placed on park residents. Rancho San Miguel has the second highest maximum base rent of rent-controlled mobile home parks in Santa Rosa, at $655.60. The senior living community has many residents on fixed incomes for whom a $40 monthly increase can be hard to absorb, including several whose sole income is Social Security. “Park owners hate rent-control ordinances,” says McLeod. “Some park owners will take full advantage of any provision in a rent-control ordinance which allows them to pass through a cost of doing business to residents.” A similar scenario played out in San Jose in 1988, and the city denied the increase under wording in the ordinance which allowed the city to “take into consideration any increase in rent that results in financial tenant hardship.” That decision was upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court. Santa Rosa’s rent-control ordinance has no such provision for hardship. “It is most frustrating to know that Rutherford could elect to just write off the property tax as a business expense,” says McLeod. Out of the 14 privately owned mobile home parks in the city, only three or four pass through property taxes to residents, he says. “What bothers us in principle is people say, ‘Why should we pay property tax on land we don’t actually own?’” says McLeod. The current annual property tax for Rancho San Miguel is $147,589, and with 141 spaces, that breaks down to $87.22 per month, per space. The new owners are seeking only $54.39 per month from each resident. The previous owners paid $79,709 annually in property taxes, which breaks down to $46.13 per month, per space, though residents were charged just $12.06 per month. There is no correlation between previous charges and any new


‘Why should we pay property tax on land we don’t actually own?’ But McLeod is still left with a sour feeling, and believes a 450 percent increase in property tax assessments to residents is too much to handle at once. Santa Rosa’s 14 privately owned mobile home parks have a total of 2,008 spaces. Of those 14, two have undergone “condo conversion,” meaning the residents own their individual spaces; Rancho San Miguel is not one of those. Out of Rancho San Miguel’s 141 spaces, 124 are regulated under Santa Rosa’s rent-control ordinance, which has been in effect since 1993. Residents are now concerned that the switch from ownership by a family business to an investment firm will mean more expenses for tenants. “They’re going through everything to maximize their profitability, and any little things they can pass through, they’re going to do it,” says McLeod. “It could all of a sudden not be an affordable place to live anymore.”

ones, says O’Hagan. “We don’t know what the prior ownership passed through. I can’t comment on what they did.” Marjorie Jackson of the city’s housing development department met with park owners and residents in December after a petition circulated in the park attracted 111 signatures, and reports that both parties came to an agreement that an increase retroactive to April would be spread out over a longer period, which cut by about $7 per month the immediate increase to residents.

Skateboarders, gardeners, hikers and coffee lovers in Monte Rio just got great news. An abandoned school site has been approved for conversion into a park that will include a skatepark, community farm, hiking trail and cafe. The $1.4 million project is possible through a $329,000 grant from the Sonoma County Agricultural Preservation and Open Space District and $995,000 of former redevelopment funds. The skatepark is assisted by $5,000 from the Tony Hawk Foundation. Construction of the 2.8-acre park will begin this week and should be finished this year. After a 20year vacancy, children’s laughter (and possibly some crying from the skatepark) will once again be heard at the former school site. Efforts are also planned to restore Schoolhouse and Dutch Bill creeks for salmon and steelhead. Another boon to outdoor recreation saw the Sonoma County Board of Supervisors approve the transfer of 1,100 acres of open space overlooking Santa Rosa on Taylor Mountain to the Regional Parks Department last week. The public grand opening is scheduled for Feb. 23.

This marks the culmination of almost two decades of planning and purchasing land by the Open Space District, which spent about $21 million on the project. Much of the land had been open to the public since 2010 through a permit program run by Santa Rosa nonprofit LandPaths. Trails, including a staging area off Petaluma Hill Road, are planned in the future thanks to a $750,000 state grant. The main access point in the meantime is still off Kawana Terrace in south Santa Rosa. Now if only the proposed clearcutto-vineyard site of Preservation Ranch could be turned into protected open space, we’d be all set. Hmm . . . —Nicolas Grizzle

SAY CHEESE! Sheana Davis, right, and daughter Karina at their downtown Sonoma shop.

Preferred Curds Sonoma’s Epicurean Connection a cheesemaker’s paradise BY JESSICA DUR TAYLOR

W

hen Sheana Davis struck upon the name “the Epicurean Connection,” she decided to trademark it in the hopes of one day opening a culinary business. Because she was just 16 years old at the time—a selfdescribed “cooking nerd” who read cookbooks for fun—a teacher helped her file the paperwork at the Sonoma County courthouse.

Almost three decades later, the chef/cheesemaker/caterer/ educator is the proud owner of the Epicurean Connection, a specialty cheese shop and cafe in Sonoma. “As a kid, I used to beg to stay home from school,” Davis tells me on a recent afternoon, “so that I could help my grandfather forage and cook.” This hands-on approach to learning has underpinned Davis’ entire career. Determined to cook and not sit in a classroom, Davis graduated from high school a year early and enrolled in the SRJC culinary program after finding that her first choice, the dairy

program, had been canceled due to low enrollment. A couple of years later, inspired by the cookbook of legendary New Orleans restaurant Commander’s Palace, the 19-year-old SRJC graduate rang up the chef to ask for an internship. “He thought I was a nut!” she says, laughing. “I called every week for weeks and weeks and weeks.” Her determination eventually paid off, and the fourth-generation Sonoman headed to the Big Easy, where she forged a lifelong relationship that pulls her back to Louisiana a few times a year. And yet a review of her life

makes one thing clear: Davis was destined for dairy. For almost two decades, she’s run a culinary marketing business that has launched 17 cheese companies. She created (with the late Ig Vella of Vella Cheese) the annual Sonoma Valley Cheese Conference, which will bring together cheesemakers, retailers and aficionados for the 10th straight year later this month, running Feb. 23–27. Once she was ready to get her own hands curd-y, she apprenticed with cheesemakers in Vermont, Wisconsin and Texas. In 2010, her Delice de la Vallee cheese (a blend of triple-cream cow milk and fresh goat milk) won the American Cheese Society’s blue ribbon for Fresh Unripened Mixed Milk Cheese. Just last year, her popular monthly cheesemaking class was featured on the Food Channel. Housed in a high-ceilinged building with pale-green tin walls, tabletops made of reclaimed doors and flourishes of Mardi Gras beads, the “chef’s pantry” of the Epicurean Connection sells everything from Davis’ own homemade cheese to pickled cauliflower to maple candy and Louisiana hot sauce. For spreadable delights, there’s the flavored Butter Bar ($9.95 for a trio) and Jam Bar ($6.95 for a trio), which includes Davis’ acclaimed honey orange blossom and raspberry rose petal jam, recently featured in Sunset magazine. The cafe also serves a variety of tartines, grilled cheese sandwiches, crêpes and salads ($7.95–$9.95). “Building community is a huge part of our shop,” Davis tells me, ticking off the events—open mic nights, guest chef appearances, art shows—that crowd the cafe’s calendar. Teenage cooking nerds, take heart: if you dare to name your dreams, they just might come true. Epicurean Connection, 122 W. Napa St., Sonoma. 707.935.7960. The Sonoma Valley Cheese Conference runs Feb. 23–27; for a chance to win tickets, enter our cheese contest at www.bohemian.com.

For many people, the word “spork” conjures a plasticwrapped utensil common to cafeterias, prisons and takeout containers. Leave it to chef Andrew Casey to place the fork/spoon hybrid atop the white tablecloths of his new fine dining establishment, Spork, which opens on Valentine’s Day. “The Italians have the fork, the French have the spoon and Americans have the spork,” says Casey, a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park. With its charcuterie and seasonal ingredients, Spork is further proof that quality cuisine can indeed be found north of Healdsburg. Sharing a space with Cloverdale’s beloved Eagle’s Nest Deli and Grill—which has been serving huge, satisfying sandwiches for 15 years—Spork will be open for dinner only on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings beginning at 6:30pm. The four-course Valentine’s menu offers diners a choice between surf (baked oysters and shrimp risotto) or turf (pork meatballs and hangar steak), with gluten-free and vegan “earth” options available as well. Friday and Saturday’s menu also includes lemon zest ravioli ($16), Prince Edward Island mussels ($18) and house-made Toulouse sausage ($16). And whether you order the dark chocolate mousse and blackberry ice cream or apple crisp and salted caramel ice cream, count on dessert being served with a 1950s vintage pastel Tupperware spork.

Frenchie Winery The pooch’s own hooch BY JAMES KNIGHT

E

very winery has a story, and is pleased to tell it. On the website, look for the tab labeled “Our Story.” You’ll find that the people who get into this business are most often accomplished, well traveled and passionate about wine. You’ll also find that, after while, all of these wonderfully unique stories begin to run together, sounding a bit like “blah blah blah.” So this week, we’re taking a look at a different sort of story. This one goes “bow wow wow.”

One warm afternoon, as Jean-Charles Boisset strolled through the parking lot of Raymond Vineyards, he found that a car had been left running, air conditioning on. The vehicle’s only occupants were two hapless pooches, left waiting while their masters lapped up Chardonnay. Being the owner of the winery, and possessing no deficit of people-whispering charm, Boisset took the liberty of shutting off the car and bringing the dogs into the tasting room and to their surprised owners. It was on that day that Boisset, native son of Burgundy who voyaged west in search of new opportunity, declared: There shall be a winery just for the dogs. Frenchie is named for a French bulldog, a gift from Boisset to his wife to keep her company while he’s away on business—leaving her, Gina Gallo, with naught to do but run her own international wine empire. The “winery” is really just a Frenchie-themed shed set amid Raymond’s biodynamic gardens, which are best appreciated in spring and summer.

Bottling the Tradition In which our reporter travels to Argentina and discovers that when it comes to mate, Americans are doing it all wrong BY JAY SCHERF

‘T

hat’s a load of crap! That’s not mate!”

I’m in Patagonian Argentina, and Vivi Pitrelli is reacting to Guayakí’s chocolate-raspberry yerba mate organic energy shot. Including some friends of the family, there are seven of us lounging around the table after dinner. Catalina Vicintini, a 20-year-old

dance student, swigs off the little brown bottle, covers her mouth and crinkles her face. “It’s the grossest thing! It’s disgusting! It’s disgusting! It’s disgusting!” she cries out in Castellano, Argentina’s dialect of Spanish. Everyone busts out laughing. “What the fuck’s in it?” asks Pitrelli. Though the bottle’s label identifies it as a yerba mate

energy shot, it is a yerba mate unrecognizable to Pitrelli, the 16 other Argentines I interview and the cultural historians I read during a recent month in Patagonia. As mate-based products have exploded in popularity in the United States, the infusion has been redefined to meet American tastes, with Sebastopol’s Guayakí leading the way. To American-born consumers, the well-respected

Guayakí is synonymous with mate: Guayakí sells around two-thirds of all mate consumed in the United States, the remainder consisting of South American brands popular with native mate-drinking immigrants. Adapting mate to American palates is central to Guayakí’s success. “We’re making it available to the gringo in the way the gringo wants to take it” remarked David Karr, cofounder of Guayakí, in


F

irst of all, what is mate, and what does the act of consuming it mean? As Argentine geographer Felix Coluccio puts it, “Drinking mate is the most significant popular custom in Argentine life, from the deepest roots of the existence of people in South America.” Formally, mate is both the infusion and the receptacle, usually made of gourd, wood or metal. The infusion of water and loose yerba, the leaves and stems of a species of caffeinated holly, is drunk from the mate through a bombilla (straw filter). The indigenous Guaraní have consumed it for thousands of years in Paraguay, northeastern Argentina, southern Brazil, and parts of Bolivia and Uruguay. After colonization, mate and the rural gaucho became inseparable, and the infusion became deeply entrenched in social life in the rest of Argentina and parts of Chile. Unlike other infusions, mate doesn’t stand and steep; the mate is filled and refilled with water, but the yerba endures. As a result, drinkers have developed countless

Jay Scherf

techniques to keep the infusion even and delicious. Additionally, because custom calls for multiple people sharing the same straw and gourd, the act of drinking mate connotes trust and hospitality. A complex culture and vocabulary has reflexively evolved around its ceremony. “To drink mate is to share,” Pitrelli explains. “It’s something intimate.” In the language of mate, quotidian objects take on new properties. Water can be tempered, burned or served raw. Kettles can spout wings and fly, or they can dance around the stovetop. Figuratively, mate can be saddled up or plugged, served tufted, in the formation of a star, or like a rancher. It can be hung up or drunk peeled, or it can be long or short. Layered into this vocabulary are jokes and insults and cultural nuances sometimes more powerful than the spoken word. At least one figure in gaucho folklore has been killed for serving mate lukewarm. Drinking bitter mate like the gauchos is masculine; tempering its strength with sugar or herbs is vaguely inauthentic, for those who can’t handle the “real deal.” To run out of yerba is a sexual reference; if there’s none left, a hypothetical couple deciding whether they want to drink mate or get it on now only have one option. The Argentine military dictatorship of the 1970s prohibited workers in some industries from drinking mate on the job, fearing that its power to bring people together would facilitate workers organizing. When a girl takes a new boyfriend to her parents’ house, suspicious parents serve him especially hot mate to try to keep his hands busy and away from their daughter. And because parents don’t offer it to children due to its bitter taste and stimulative properties, Argentines consider the first time a child drinks mate home alone as a noteworthy rite of passage. As their country has acquired a more cosmopolitan character, many Argentines attach less significance to the intricate rituals that characterize mate in

IN THE TRADITION In Argentina, mate is steeped and shared, with each participant drinking from the same ‘bombilla.’

its former provincial context. For example, most Argentines today would not interpret receiving mate with lemon balm as a symbol of the server’s sadness or distress, as Coluccio writes it once meant. However, many widely observed customs and symbols concerning mate still exist, and mate’s definition is clear. None of the Argentines I interviewed abroad knew that mate is now sold in the United States, and none of them considered Guayakí’s bottles or cans to be authentic types of mate.

A

mid a series of interviews I conducted with strangers in town, I spoke with Alejandro Benitez, a tourist in his 20s from Buenos Aires, who spit out the sample of the mate energy shot I offered him. He defined mate like my other sources. “Mate” he says, “has three basic elements: the mate [receptacle], yerba and bombilla.” To Benitez, Guayakí’s single-use bottles and cans are “very individualistic,” and he adds an important reminder: “Mate is shared.” On the porch one afternoon, I discuss American mate with Vivi’s visiting relatives. “Those have nothing to do with what mate is,” says Fernando Pitrelli, Vivi’s

brother, referring to some printout labels of Guayakí’s bottles and cans. “Mate isn’t drunk from a bottle; you don’t get it from a can.” “It’s all for business,” he says. “They’re losing out on what mate is, what mate means to us.” “What they’ve got wrong is the definition,” says Nahir Pitrelli, 21, Fernando’s daughter. She points to the printout labels of Guayakí’s cans, featuring Argentine-styled people drinking mate from gourds. “If you look closely in the drawing, that’s mate how we drink it here, but they sell it to you in a can—I mean, nada que ver.” Nahir continues, stopping short of vilifying the American palate. “If [Americans] like them, they should drink them,” she says. “It’s just mediocre.” However, my sources don’t see Americans’ interpretations of their infusion as necessarily sacrilegious. As Fernando puts it, “What people do with their culo is up to them.” “It’s all good,” says Sergio Rojel, an elderly campesino I spoke with in town, of mate in bottles and cans. Though wearing the loose bombacha pants and beret characteristic of gauchos, he adds that “we’re already losing traditional Argentine culture here.” ) 18

a 2010 Bloomberg article titled “Guayakí Wants to Take Yerba Mate from Niche to 7-11 Staple.” And the gringo certainly wants to take it: around 60 percent of Guayakí’s approximately $15 million annual revenue comes from pre-made mate products sold in bottles and cans—products unheard of in mate’s native Southern Cone. However, globalizing and redefining mate has larger implications than most commodities. Americans aren’t surprised to know that cultural U.S. icons like Coca-Cola, for example, are consumed worldwide. Mate, on the other hand, represents and influences life in the Southern Cone much more than anything we eat or drink in America. While drinking a mate latte in the States isn’t sacrilegious, per se—like runway models flaunting mock American Indian headdresses—native mate drinkers aren’t happy with how their infusion is represented here, and they have some words for American consumers.

Some were less enthusiastic. “I’m not offended, but they’re deceiving people,” says Iris Ramirez, Benitez’s partner. Indeed, most Argentines I interview don’t express grudges against Guayakí; in fact, in the progressive area where I stay, some appreciate the idea of organic yerba. (Others, in Ramirez’s words, regard Guayakí’s organic, fair-trade and shade-grown certifications as “marketing.”) They acknowledged that cultural objects take new forms when they cross borders, and that isn’t inherently negative. “We drink mate,” says Ricardo “El Colo” Romero. “But one of the most popular types of music here is rock.”

t should be noted that Guayakí is well aware of mate’s significance in the Southern Cone; Alex Pryor, a founding member, is from Buenos Aires. (Karr, the other founding member, is from the South Bay; the two met at college in San Luis Obispo.) Pryor writes over email that he feels “honored by the American culture who embraces with respect and admiration the cultural and health attributes” of yerba mate. And though only 20 percent of Guayakí’s sales consist of loose-leaf, from which traditional forms of mate are made, the company does pay homage to mate’s history and

ceremony on its website. When I read Karr some quotes from my Argentine sources reacting to Guayakí’s bottles and cans, he pauses. “A-ha . . . Um, yeah, I could understand how they would say that,” he says. Karr has likely been faced with this question before. “We’re trying to bring yerba mate culture to the world. And so for us, that means you have to make it available to different lifestyles,” he says. “We’re doing everything as authentically as we possibly can,” he adds, mentioning Guayakí’s rainforest-protection efforts and relationships with indigenous mate farmers. “Just because we brew it and package it in the bottles and cans so that more people can have access to it—because that’s the way they drink things—fine,” Karr says. “Not everyone has to feel great about it.” Back in Argentina, I’d wanted to know on what terms drinking mate is OK; where do Argentines place the limits of its authenticity? At Vivi’s dinner table, I ask if it’s all right that gringos drink mate traditionally outside of the Southern Cone. “Si!” responds my host family in chorus. “It’s great!” Romero says. “Drinking mate isn’t anyone’s birthright; to drink mate is to share,” repeats Vivi. “It’s fine that gringos drink mate, but let’s make it mate, not those clown things.”

Experimental sounds, handmade instruments in once-ina-lifetime concert at Cinnabar BY NICOLAS GRIZZLE

T

he ominous, unclassiďŹ able tones of the waterphone have been favorites of sci-ďŹ and thriller movie composers for 40 years, and experimental musicians love its nearlyimpossible-to-predict sound. Played underwater with a bow dragged across metal tines, it speaks the language of the whales for miles in every direction. The chance to hear its creator Richard Waters play it live is rare.

This week, Waters plays his most famous instrument and other handmade specialties in Petaluma with the Gravity Adjusters Expansion Band and Full Disclosure in a concert dubbed â&#x20AC;&#x153;When Worlds Collide.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;This kind of music is different,â&#x20AC;? says bassist Rob Wright, a member of freejazz group Full Disclosure. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re combining avant-garde and freeimprov. Our only rule is that there are no rules.â&#x20AC;? Gary Knowlton, who will play the ďŹ&#x201A;aming hyena, a stringed instrument of his own creation, will add to the program of ephemeral music created entirely

in the moment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wanted to do something that includes elements of the soundscapes that Richard does with his special instruments with the traditional high-energy, jazz-driven stuff with Full Disclosure,â&#x20AC;? says Wright. This might sound beautiful, strange, soothing or scary, but the musicians are all formally trained, including Wright, a bassist and teacher. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For me, this kind of music is an expression of the moment,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;No one who plays this music seriously comes out of a voidâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;it comes out of technique and background.â&#x20AC;? The music will feature â&#x20AC;&#x153;lots of

invented instruments, and some invented-long-ago instruments,â&#x20AC;? says Cinnabar executive artistic director Elly Lichenstein, looking forward to the concoction of jazz, blues, classical, experimental music and poetry. The musical stylings are reminiscent of one-time Petaluma resident Harry Partch. The avant-garde American composer invented hundreds of instruments, and composed music based on speech patterns, fashioning melodies out of the timbre of sentences. One of his most popular works is the 1963 piece â&#x20AC;&#x153;And on the Seventh Day, Petals Fell in Petaluma.â&#x20AC;? Another source of inspiration is Tony Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Anna, a musician who passed away at the age of 71 in January of last year. Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Anna spent roughly 25 years as the accompanist of Cinnabarâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s summer childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s music program. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He just had a gift working with kids,â&#x20AC;? says Lichenstein. Though more a jazz player than a musical theater fan, Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Anna ďŹ t right in with the program, and, Lichtenstein says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;the kids miss him terribly.â&#x20AC;? Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Anna himself played the waterphone, as well as piano and other instruments. Wright played with him for about 15 years, recalling Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Annaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bebop piano gigs to which he would bring a baby grand piano using a truck and dolly. Between late-night gigs, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d play Beethoven sonatas each morning. The concert is dedicated in part to his memory. Wright, whose ďŹ rst bass teacher played in Partchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s orchestra, says though the two never played together to his knowledge, Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Anna and Partch were on a similar path. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s some sort of spiritual connection,â&#x20AC;? he intones, â&#x20AC;&#x153;between Richard and Harry.â&#x20AC;? Worlds collide on Sunday, Feb. 24 at the Cinnabar Theater. 3333 Petaluma Blvd. N., Petaluma. 7pm. $15â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$20. 707.763.8920.

omething appealing! Something appalling!â&#x20AC;? Those succinctly apt words from the classic song â&#x20AC;&#x153;Comedy Tonight,â&#x20AC;? which opens the musical comedy A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, pretty much sum up the entire enterprise. The amiably lewd 1962 musical delivers its ďŹ rst big laugh just seconds into the show, and it features a hilarious act of ragdoll infanticide. Set in the golden age of Rome, the show fuses the clever tunefulness of Stephen Sondheimâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s music with the bawdy naughtiness of the Larry Gelbart and Burt Sheveloveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s frequently funny script. Presented by the New Spreckels Theatre Company, Forum has become a community theater staple over the last 50 years.

and wholesomely sexy coarseness with their Broadway-born shows. This one requires an especially strong cast of comic actors to pull off, however, and an orchestra skilled enough to nail the challenges of Sondheimâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s music. Fortunately, director Gene Abravaya has assembled a coterie of local performers, veterans and newcomers alike, with enough chops and charm to elevate the show above its 10-piece orchestraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s persistent problems with pitch and musical cohesion. Musical directors Richard and Sandy Riccardi, known for their work with college and community theater troupes (and their own musical-comedy cabaret act), do keep the energy high, but if Spreckels Performing Arts Center is going to achieve its goal of becoming the go-to destination for North Bay musical theater, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to need a tighter orchestra. The chief delight in the Spreckels production is the cast, lead by local funnyman Tim Setzer as Pseudolus, a Roman slave eager to be free yet bound to serve the horny property owner Senex (a gleefully randy Elliot Simon) and his Gorgon of a wife, Domina (Tina Lloyd Meals, chewing up the scenery with irresistible fervor). When their lovestruck son Hero (Matthew Lindberg, appropriately wide-eyed) promises Pseudolus his freedom if he can score a hookup with the lovely but unavailable Philia (Dene Harvey, wonderfully ďŹ&#x201A;irty), the scene is set for an evening of mistaken identities, misunderstandings, near misses and, of course, the deliriously contrived happy ending promised in the opening number. Though hardly â&#x20AC;&#x153;importantâ&#x20AC;? theater, Forum reminds us that it is important to laugh now and then, and this one serves the laughs with fast and furious, sweetly infectious charm.

umerous twists make Side Effects a ďŹ lm about which the less said, the better; the one scene the celeb reporters have been talking about spoils the impact. Stephen Soderberghâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s allegedly last movie has a witty, plausible subject, playing on the shudders one gets from seeing cartoony advertisements on television and billboards for antidepressants.

In the ďŹ lm, a serious crime is committed by a deeply depressed Manhattanite named Emily. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s played by Rooney Mara, who is a revelation. Emilyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s defense is that she cannot recall the crime because her meds have turned her into a sleepwalker. This leaves her psychiatrist (Jude Law) legally vulnerable, caught between his own corporate dealings and the reporters from the New York Post. Some clues come via Emilyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s former psychiatrist (Catherine Zeta-Jones). While Soderberghâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s beautifully turned series of ďŹ&#x201A;ashbacks made Out of Sight a classic, the jumping around here keeps Side Effects remote. Lawâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s skeeviness (this shrink forgets to shave) is well worked; as always with Law, you can never tell if heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s crooked, right up until the end. But the casting of an actress with a Viking warrior vibe (Vinessa Shaw) as the shrinkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wife canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t counterbalance the ambient evil with tendernessâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and increases the scriptâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lean toward misogyny. Among his many gifts, Soderbergh has a sense of the erotic, for making you feel youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen far more than you have. His soundscapes intensify the paranoia: the prattling of a child during an important TV broadcast, the soughing of a skyscraper, the cutting out of sound entirely. The cleverly matched beginning and ending say â&#x20AC;&#x153;You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to be a homicidal maniac to live in New York, but it helps.â&#x20AC;? Soderbergh is claiming this is his last ďŹ lm, and that he now wants to paint. Without sarcasm, I note that his studies of blood splotches on a hardwood ďŹ&#x201A;oor are very painterly. Hope, then, that he has a nice long vacation, and that one morning, the Eon studio execs try to tempt him out of retirement with a meeting about Bond 24.

Not Fade Away

Erma Murphyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s keen eye for live music BY GABE MELINE

E

rma Murphy lets out a loud laugh when I suggest that she might want to keep an eye out for Mickey Hart lurking in the shadows at her shows this weekend.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know!â&#x20AC;? chuckles the Marin promoter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the only one who hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t got a club yet!â&#x20AC;? The laughter is well-deserved. Murphy, with partner Daniel Patrick, has promoted concerts in Marin County for the past nine years. The last venue the two booked on a regular basis was the Palm Ballroom at the Seafood Peddler restaurantâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; which attracted the attention of Phil Lesh, who famously reopened it as Terrapin Crossroads. Before that, Murphy had stumbled upon and began regularly booking an unused, virtually forgotten room at the Mill Valley Masonic Hallâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;which proved such a natural place for music that it eventually reopened as the Sweetwater Music Hall, owned in part by Bob Weir.

Grateful Dead out there want to open a club, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be keen to follow Murphyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good eye. Not that Murphy, a Marin native since the age of three, wants to relinquish another site. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been feeling so lost for a year,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nice to be back in.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Back inâ&#x20AC;? refers to Murphyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s two shows this weekend: David Lindley at the Kanbar Center on Feb. 16, and the David Nelson Band at the Mill Valley Community Center on Feb. 15 and 16. The Kanbar has its own in-house programming, but the MVCC has asked Murphy to help expand its offeringsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and Murphy Productions is rolling again. Murphyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s love of music goes back to childhood, listening to the Beatles and Stones, reaching an obsessive zenith in college. REM, Talking Heads and others were standbys on her radio show on KDVS-FM at UC Davis, but she called the show Schizophrenic Pitch for a reason: her tastes were all over the map. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In college,â&#x20AC;? she says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;everyone was so snobby, you had to be really avant-garde. But I played Stevie Ray Vaughan.â&#x20AC;? Not a musician herself (â&#x20AC;&#x153;I took piano lessons for 10 years and I cried the entire time,â&#x20AC;? she jokes), Murphy nonetheless liked bringing musicians together, especially if it meant she could dance. Hence, for ďŹ ve years, she hosted house parties with up to 125 peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;inside, outsideâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;at her Mill Valley home, with extended jam sessions by amateur musicians and professionals such as the Rowan Brothers alike. Soon after, Murphy and Patrick started booking the Larkspur Cafe Theater, a â&#x20AC;&#x153;listening roomâ&#x20AC;? environment, and in the years since, with the help of comrade Larry the Hat, have brought in the likes of Jackie Greene, ALO, Dan Hicks and many other local favorites. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People are just so nice,â&#x20AC;? Murphy says, grateful for the community fostered around her show. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And they love to dance. It feels like family.â&#x20AC;?

If you’re looking for a way to spend your Valentine’s Day other than at home watching The Notebook and eating Ben & Jerry’s, look no further than the Whole Lotta Love Valentine’s Day Celebration at Aubergine. Cabaret de Caliente promoter and performer Eva D’Lucious (above) wanted to introduce a new audience to burlesque by providing something for both men and women to enjoy. “A few ladies have emailed me that Whole Lotta Love will be their first Burlesque show,” she notes, “and a big part of the reason their partners want to attend is because we’re featuring Led Zeppelin.” Raven-haired, tattooed lady Siren Sapphire will strut the stage to “Black Dog,” while the Scarlet Harlot plans a dance to the one and only “Immigrant Song.” Other performances include pole dancer Carrie Bare, Pearl E. Gates, the iCandy Dancers, Boylesque group Bohemian Brethren and more. Zeppelin mashups and live recordings play during intermission, while a raffle for those who bring a new book or children’s pajamas for charity offers choice prizes. Whole Lotta Love, featuring Eva herself dancing to “Dazed and Confused,” gets steamy on Thursday, Feb. 14, at Aubergine. 755 Petaluma Ave., Sebastopol. $15–$35. 8pm. 707.861.9190.—Estefany Gonzalez

Oceanic Opera Haydn and Vaughan Williams at SSU New experiences are a major part of why students go off to school. The same, one could argue, is true of the theatergoing public. This year, SSU’s theater arts department has been producing a string of performances all based on the subject of water, from environmental issues to this month’s production: two little-known one-act operas, both set on inhospitable islands. Titled Island Passions, the operatic two-pack runs daily through Sunday, Feb. 17, at the Evert B. Person Theatre. Joseph Haydn’s tuneful morsel The Forgotten Island is so thin, plotwise, it could be summed up in a haiku: two sisters marooned / on a deserted island / find rescue and love. Vaughan Williams’ weightier Riders to the Sea takes place off the coast of Ireland, where a grieving widow waits to learn the fate of her last two sons, her other four having already been drowned at sea. Gracefully directed by Danielle Cain, featuring a first-rate orchestra under the direction by Lynn Morrow, each miniopera features students from SSU’s music department, many taking a first stab at acting onstage. For some, audience and students alike, Island Passions provides a tantalizing first taste of opera, as new and exciting as a spontaneous island holiday. Island Passions runs through Feb. 17 at the Evert B. Person Theatre at SSU. See www. sonoma.edu for details.—David Templeton

Astrology

FREE WILL BY ROB BREZSNY

For the week of February 13

ARIES (March 21–April 19) Afrikaner author Laurens van der Post told a story about a conversation between psychologist Carl Jung and Ochwiay Biano, a Pueblo Indian chief. Jung asked Biano to offer his views about white people. “White people must be crazy, because they think with their heads,” said the chief, “and it is well-known that only crazy people do that.” Jung asked him what the alternative was. Biano said that his people think with their hearts. That’s your assignment for the week ahead, Aries: to think with your heart—especially when it comes to love. For extra credit, you should feel with your head—especially when it comes to love. Happy Valentine Daze, Aries! TAURUS (April 20–May 20)

Have you ever sent a torrent of smart and elegant love messages to a person you wanted to get closer to? Now would be an excellent time to try a stunt like that. Have you ever scoured the depths of your own psyche in search of any unconscious attitudes or bad habits that might be obstructing your ability to enjoy the kind of intimacy you long for? I highly recommend such a project right now. Have you ever embarked on a crusade to make yourself even more interesting and exciting than you already are? Do it now. Raise your irresistibility! Happy Valentine Daze, Taurus!

GEMINI (May 21–June 20) Happy Valentine Daze, Gemini! After careful meditation about what messages might purify and supercharge your love life, I decided to offer suggestions about what not to do. To that end, I’ll quote some lines from Kim Addonizio’s poem “Forms of Love.” Please don’t speak any of them out loud, or even get yourself into a position where it makes sense to say them. 1. “I love how emotionally unavailable you are.” 2. “I love you and feel a powerful spiritual connection to you, even though we’ve never met.” 3. “I love your pain, it’s so competitive.” 4. “I love you as long as you love me back.” 5. “I love you when you’re not getting drunk and stupid.” 6. “I love you but I’m married.” 7. “I love it when you tie me up with ropes using the knots you learned in Boy Scouts, and when you do the stoned Dennis Hopper rap from Apocalypse Now!” CANCER (June 21–July 22) This Valentine season, I suggest you consider trying an experiment like this: Go to the soulful ally you want to be closer to and take off at least some of your masks. Drop your pretenses, too. Shed your emotional armor and do without your psychological crutches. Take a chance on getting as psychologically and spiritually naked as you have ever dared. Are you brave enough to reveal the core truths about yourself that lie beneath the convenient truths and the expired truths and the pretend truths?

LEO (July 23–August 22) “Sex is a substitute for God,” says writer Cathryn Michon. “When we desire another human being sexually, we are really only trying to fill our longing for ecstasy and union with the infinite.” I agree with her, and I think you might, too, after this week. Erotic encounters will have an even better chance than usual of connecting you to the Sublime Cosmic YumYum. If you can’t find a worthy collaborator to help you accomplish this miraculous feat, just fantasize about one. You need and deserve spiritual rapture. Happy Valentine Daze, Leo! VIRGO (August 23–September 22)

Lately you’ve been doing exemplary work on your relationship with yourself, Virgo. You have half-convinced your inner critic to shut the frack up unless it has a truly important piece of wisdom to impart. Meanwhile, you’ve managed to provide a small but inspired dose of healing for the wounded part of your psyche, and you have gently exposed a self-deception that had been wreaking quiet havoc. Congratulations! I’ve got a hunch that all these fine efforts will render you extra sexy and charismatic in the coming week. But it will probably be a subtle kind of sexiness and charisma that only the most emotionally intelligent people will recognize. So don’t expect to attract the attention of superficial jerks who happen to have beautiful exteriors. Happy Valentine Daze!

LIBRA (September 23–October 22) The coming days could be an animalistic time for you, and I mean that in the best sense. I suspect you will generate

lots of favorable responses from the universe if you honor the part of you that can best be described as a beautiful beast. Learn fun new truths about your instinctual nature. Explore the mysteries of your primal urges. See what you can decipher about your body’s secret language. May I also suggest that you be alert for and receptive to the beautiful beast in other people? Happy Valentine Daze, Libra!

SCORPIO (October 23–November 21)

For the French Scorpio poet Paul Valéry, swimming had an erotic quality. He described it as fornication avec l’onde, which can be translated as “fornicating with the waves.” Your assignment this Valentine season, Scorpio, is to identify at least three activities that are like sex but not exactly sex—and then do them with glee and abandon. The purpose of this exercise is to educate and cultivate your libido, to encourage your kundalini to branch out as it intensifies and expands your lust for life.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22–December 21) This Valentine season, meditate on the relentlessness of your yearning for love. Recognize the fact that your eternal longing will never leave you in peace. Accept that it will forever delight you, torment you, inspire you and bewilder you—whether you are alone or in the throes of a complicated relationship. Understand that your desire for love will just keep coming and coming and coming, keeping you slightly off-balance and pushing you to constantly revise your ideas about who you are. Now read this declaration from the poet Rilke and claim it as your own: “My blood is alive with many voices that tell me I am made of longing.”

CAPRICORN (December 22–January 19) According to physicists Yong Mao and Thomas Fink, you can tie a necktie in 85 different kinds of knots, but only 13 of those actually look good. I encourage you to apply that way of thinking to pretty much everything you do in the coming week. Total success will elude you if you settle on functional solutions that aren’t aesthetically pleasing. You should make sure that beauty and usefulness are thoroughly interwoven. This is especially true in matters regarding your love life and close relationships. Togetherness needs a strong dose of lyrical pragmatism. Happy Valentine Daze, Capricorn! AQUARIUS (January 20–February 18) “All these years, I’ve been searching for an impossible love,” said French writer Marguerite Duras late in her life. The novels and films she created reflect that feeling. Her fictional characters are often engaged in obsessive quests for an ideal romance that would allow them to express their passion perfectly and fulfill their longing completely. In the meantime, their actual relationships in the real world suffer, even as their starry-eyed aspirations remain forever frustrated. I invite you, Aquarius, to celebrate this Valentine season by taking a vow of renunciation. Summon the courage to forswear Duras’ doomed approach to love. PISCES (February 19–March 20) To avoid getting hacked, computer tech experts advise you to choose strong, hard-to-guess passwords for your online accounts. Among the worst choices to protect your security are “123456,” “iloveyou,” “qwerty,” and, of course, “password.” Judging by the current astrological omens, Pisces, I’m guessing that you should have a similar approach to your whole life in the coming days. It’s important that you be picky about who you allow into your heart, mind, and soul. Make sure that only the most trustworthy and sensitive people can gain access. Your metaphorical password might be something like this: m*y#s@t&e?r%y.
