Rhapsodies March for Rights Annual May Day march adds police accountability to list of issues BY ATTILA NAGY AND MICHAEL ROTHENBERG

S

ince 2006, when hundreds of thousands marched nationwide, including 10,000 in Santa Rosa, the local May Day march has focused on immigrant and workers’ rights, universal healthcare, family unity and an end to deportation. This year, there will be the additional focus on police accountability brought to prominence in Sonoma County with the killing of 13-year-old Latino youth Andy Lopez by sheriff’s deputy Erick Gelhaus.

Historically, the Santa Rosa May Day march, organized by the May 1st Coalition of Sonoma County, has been largely an expression of the Latino community, but the killing of Andy Lopez has brought together a wider response. In recent years, many communities have been fearful of the police, and it has become a prominent issue in Sonoma County, where many people avoid police involvement in resolving problems because of an increasing perception that the presence of police only escalates the problem rather than making it better. There have been nearly 60 fatalities involving law enforcement in Sonoma County since 2000. This statistic reflects an increasing number of police killings throughout the United States in recent years, which seems to have become epidemic with the advent of police militarization. Still, insistence on workers’ rights is the guiding focus of this year’s May Day march. Nationwide demonstrations at fast food restaurants and Walmart highlight the increasing disparity between rich and poor, and the reality of a rapidly vanishing American middle class. On Thursday, May 1, there will be another important May Day march beginning at Roseland Plaza, in the old Albertson’s parking lot at 665 Sebastopol Road, near Dutton Avenue. The march will gather at 4pm with a short rally, then proceed to Courthouse Square downtown at 4:45pm, where the event will continue with speakers and music. Attila Nagy, of Comité VIDA, and Michael Rothenberg, founder of 100 Thousand Poets for Change, are both members of the May 1st Coalition, which yearly sponsors the May Day march. Open Mic is a weekly feature in the ‘Bohemian.’ We welcome your contribution. To have your topical essay of 350 words considered for publication, write openmic@bohemian.com.

This is a very moving and informative story (“Homeless Front,” April 9). I don’t know how any military person returning home after serving on active duty in Iraq or Afghanistan could not have PTSD. The terror of what they did (in the name of our country) and what they experienced over there would really mess up anyone. Then coming home to an entirely different reality and trying to fit into their old lives and relationships is another corkscrew. IMHO, the problem is at the front end, and that’s really where the focus should be. Defending our country on our soil is one thing; engaging in an optional war is really unfair to those who we ask to serve as our surrogates. Those who believe in starting such a war should be the ones who serve in it. I understand that all those who serve do so in a volunteer capacity; we don’t have a draft. However, some of them see no other option in their lives, and others naively believe that the benefit they receive (in experience, money, education, personal growth and responsibility) will outweigh the horrific blowback of the experience. Though not all service people serving in war end up with such debilitating PTSD that it’s nearly impossible for them to function normally in our society, I have a hard time believing that most of them don’t have varying degrees of it.

Dharma Karma I don’t understand (“Dharma Bummer,” April 9)! Seems to me that Cazadero resident Mike Singer and other residents are taking the same approach the Chinese government did with Tibet.

Didn’t we learn a lesson? The residents of Ratna Ling are trying to bring enlightenment and understanding to a dark world, and some want to restrict that freedom? Though it seems many in Sonoma county are very accepting and tolerant, not everyone is, unfortunately. If Dharma Publishing ceases, there will no doubt be another publisher, person or thing that will carry the same principles, just as Tibet did. Keep on with it, Ratna Ling. You bring us freedom. Cazadero, leave those monks in peace!

Jello Shot Mr. Biafra blames computer whiz kids for raising the cost of San Francisco housing (“Jello-Rama,” April 2). His waxing nostalgic about the ’70s should be adjusted for inflation, lest he become the kind of curmudgeon who starts every sentence with “Why, I remember when . . .” Rent control had the effect of maxing out rent increases every year, maintaining high baseline rents for empty units and for builders growing reluctant to meet demand. Why, I remember a time when landlords would value a decent renter and not raise rents for years. But those “good old days” ended in 1979—just about the time the Dead Kennedys came on the scene. Coincidence? You decide.

Rants By Tom Tomorrow

    

      

Lawn Liberation I rented a house for 10 years from a landlord who forced me to waste water on a front and back lawn. What did he care? He doesn’t live in Sonoma County, and we had to pay the water bill. This past year, we were lucky enough to buy our own place, where we promptly ripped out the lawn and installed lowwater-use plants. Unfortunately, there are still many other renters who are forced to waste water to satisfy the whims of an absent landlord. This is an issue that needs to be addressed, from the standpoint of both water conservation and renters’ rights.

Paper THE

City Situation Frustrated with stalled negotiations with the city, the Santa Rosa City Employees Association (SRCEA) showed its displeasure, with dozens of members wearing white shirts at Tuesday night’s Santa Rosa City Council meeting. The union has been working without a contract since July, and has rejected offers from the city. They have asked for a 2 percent cost of living adjustment, followed by a 2 to 5 percent raise the following year. The city has reportedly offered annual increases of 2 and 2.5 percent in a two-year contract, but asked for employees to contribute more to pensions. The union voted in February to join the larger Teamsters Local 856, for “professional support,” as SRCEA president Mike Reynolds told the Press Democrat. The planned demonstration is not a strike, nor a threat to strike, but is meant to show SRCEA’s dissatisfaction with negotiations.

Virtual Training KING FISH Recreational ocean salmon fishing kicked off on April 5.

The Bite Goes On Recreational salmon season begins with a bang, just like last year BY TOM GOGOLA

T

The muchanticipated opening of the California recreational ocean salmon fishing season in Bodega Bay on April 5 started strong but petered out late last week, an unwelcome trend for anglers that continued through the weekend.

Captain Rick Powers runs two boats out of Bodega Bay. He said fishing aboard his 65-foot open boat the New Sea Angler was red-hot all week after the season started until it went cold Friday. As the saying goes, that’s why they call it “fishing” and not “catching.” Posted fishing reports from early in the week spoke of a steady pull of king salmon for anglers, and Powers says the online reports

coming out of the Bodega grounds prompted boats from Berkeley and Sausalito to make the long trip north to get in on the action. Before the bite crapped out, many of his anglers, Powers says, went home with their bag limit of two king salmon, some in the 20-pound-plus class. On slow days, he supplemented the scant salmon catch for his fares with an offering of Dungeness plucked ) 10 from his crab pots.

The Community and Local Law Enforcement Task Force was asked Monday to look into virtualreality training for the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office. The technology, sheriff’s officials say, would cost roughly $100,000 and could help officers avoid deadly scenarios like the Andy Lopez tragedy. A study conducted in 1992 found that interactive video, a likely precursor to virtual reality, ranked high in effectiveness by officers “in terms of their ability to facilitate use of force decision making.” The task force also heard a plea to increase the number of nonlethal-impact projectile launchers from five to 35. The Task Force put off any action recommending the options, citing the need for public feedback. (We’d like to hear your opinion at letters@bohemian. com.) The task force was created to address issues raised after Lopez, 13, was shot by a Sonoma County Sheriff’s deputy in October.—Nicolas Grizzle

The Bohemian started as The Paper in 1978.

To hear Powers tell it, the 2014 king salmon season started where last season left off. Powers says that in a halfcentury fishing North Bay waters, he had never seen a king salmon season like the one enjoyed by local anglers last year. The 60-yearold captain started his career working as a deckhand on San Francisco open boats when he was nine years old. In all that time, he says, “I never experienced the grade, the quality and the size of the salmon.” Last year’s bite gave him reason to be “very optimistic about this season.” The 2014 season opener marks something of a watershed year for North Bay anglers and fisheries. This is the tenth year of an intensive restoration program to help save coho salmon from extinction in California. Powers says he starts seeing coho in May and June when he’s trolling for salmon—and stresses that any that are caught are released under state law. The state has ramped up droughtremediation efforts that may have side benefits of helping restore salmon stocks, and especially the coho, which tend to favor smaller and more environmentally sensitive creeks over larger rivers when it’s time to spawn. A 2012 state initiative called the Coho Help Act is now underway; it set out to “make it easier for landowners to do good things for the coho,” says Brian Stranko, water program director for the Nature Conservancy of California. The Coho Help Act pays landowners up to $100,000 to fix up their piece of the creek to make it more amenable to the coho, either by removing impediments or water diversions, or by returning a creek to a more natural state by adding (or not removing) wood debris from the water. Gov. Jerry Brown’s proposed 2014–15 budget would spend $113 million on statewide fisheriesrestoration programs. A similar proposal from his 2012–13 budget was whittled to $95 million by the time the budget was passed. Another $22 million is included in the proposed 2014–15 budget for

an inland hatcheries fund. For the first time, the state proposed funding a $1.5 million program this year to investigate and enforce marijuana-cultivation water diversions, a growing problem in the state and one that directly affects the coho’s chances of a lasting rebound. The fishery is hovering around 1 percent of its historical numbers in California—a figure that has yet to budge upward despite the various efforts underway.

‘Everyone sees themselves as being part of the solution for cohos. There was a time when everyone was at loggerheads.’ California enjoys an unusual degree of cooperation among the various players invested in fisheries management: regulators, environmentalists, commercial and recreational anglers, ranchers and farmers. “Everyone sees themselves as being part of the solution for cohos,” says Stranko. “There was a time when everyone was at loggerheads.” One unaddressed area of concern for Stranko is coho salmon “bycatch,” which refers to fish that are not targeted but wind up on the hook or in the net anyway. The commercial ocean salmon season opens May 1, just around the time Powers says he starts to see offlimits coho hit his baits. “We do not want to see a coho bycatch problem or mortalities in coho because of the bycatch,” says Stranko. “But the problem is, we don’t have a lot of information on how many coho get caught in bycatch. So it’s hard to say whether it’s a big problem or a little problem.”

METAMORPHOSIS Corn goes in, masa comes out as Adriana Guzmán grinds nixtal for El Molino Central’s daily dough.

Killer Corn How to enjoy tortillas without dying

G

ranted, when 50 tortillas cost $2 to buy, and making them right can take a full day, practicality wins out much of the time.

But many diners only know the Taco Bell–ized version of the tortilla, and these flavorless vehicles for meat and guacamole just don’t give the ancient food that powered a civilization for hundreds of years the respect it deserves. Like most cheap food that has

BY NICOLAS GRIZZLE

been around for centuries, tortillas have hung around so long because they’re tasty, affordable and have nutritious value. But, as with many modern takes on old standards, the popular version pales in comparison to the real thing. To make a tortilla from scratch, one must start at ground level. Burning limestone is a way to obtain lime (calcium oxide, known in markets simply as “cal”), which, when mixed with water, makes calcium hydroxide. Yes, we’re still talking about tortillas, and this is where science comes into play.

One cup of this mixture is poured into a pot of water and dried field corn, which is then boiled for five minutes before being left to sit overnight. The hemicellulose and pectin in the plant’s cell walls break down in the solution, and the indigestible hulls loosen. This is called nixtamalization. The calcium is absorbed in the corn and allows for the release of chemicals that allow for easier grinding and give the dough its signature texture. Once drained, the bright yellow kernels are rinsed under cool

water and rubbed together to remove the hulls. Not only does this make the corn palatable and versatile, it makes it less deadly. In the mid 19th century, it was confirmed that corn was the cause of pellagra when a French campaign to eliminate the vegetable as a diet staple all but eradicated the deadly disease from western Europe. But it wasn’t until 1938 that American scientists discovered that niacin cures pellagra, and it was even later that nixtamalization, which adds niacin and other vitamins to corn, was found to eliminate the cause of the disease altogether. And this is something Mesoamericans were doing in the 15th century. It took us over 500 years to figure out how to stop killing ourselves with corn. That’s how important this process is. The corn’s now ready for grinding, but this can’t be done in a food processor. Traditionally, it’s ground with a bit of water on a large, flat stone called a metate. At El Molino Central in Boyes Hot Springs, this is done daily. (A “molino” is the name of the machine and the place where corn is traditionally brought for grinding, because to do large amounts by hand would mean an absurd amount of work.) El Molino Central’s tortillas and chips are spectacular on their own, and instantly elevate anything that accompanies them. The restaurant takes pride in this—rightfully so— offering chips and tortillas to go at the counter. Back to the tortillas (we’re almost done). The dough, called masa, is made into little balls called testales. Placed between two circles cut from plastic bags, it’s squished in a press and cooked on a griddle until a pocket forms in the middle. Now they’re ready to be stuffed (tacos, enchiladas), fried (chips, tostadas) or just eaten right away with a little bit of butter (heaven). A class on making traditional corn tortillas will be held Saturday, April 19, at Healdsburg SHED. 25 North St., Healdsburg. 10:30am. $40. 707.431.7433.

Kachina Vineyards owners Greg (shown) and Nancy Chambers gave up fast-paced careers 15 years ago to buy an undeveloped parcel in the benchlands above Dry Creek Valley. And, yes, they built a little Tuscan-style winery with artfully exposed brick and planted estate Cabernet Sauvignon—check and check. But their pastoral aspirations didn’t stop at the precious designation “vintner.” They went all the way to “goat breeder.” Spanish meat goats are a rare, hardy breed that will eat nearly anything—including poison oak, a handy trait in the dense oak woodland surrounding the winery. One fuzzy, brown kid was rejected by its mother earlier this spring and had to be hand-raised. He’s a keeper. The fate of the rest will vary, but I’m not going to speculate on the wine pairing. Kachina is named after spirit beings from the Hopi tradition, which may represent earthly figures or deities. “The god we picked was the god of good harvest and prosperity,” Greg says. “It seemed tied in to what we were doing.” Self-taught winemakers, the couple run the 1,000-case winery themselves, and pour wine for visitors on a quiet patio under the oaks. Cicadas chirp from the trees and turkeys gobble in the scrub while tiny caterpillars bob from silken strands above my glass of 2012 Russian River Valley Chardonnay ($32). Like a sample spritzed in the air by a perfume counter clerk, this wine suggests, “Here, try Chardonnay.” In between tart, Eureka lemon and refreshing, lime margarita flavors, sweet butterscotch sneaks a ride to the finish. There’s a meaty savor to the dry, cherry-fleshed 2013 Sangiovese Rosé ($29), and the Zinfandel Port ($32), washing down a locally made chocolate truffle, becomes a light, grapey quaff. Rarer than a Spanish goat is the Savoie grape; the 2012 Charbono ($29) is sourced from a portion of the 80 or so acres of this heritage grape remaining in California. A chameleon once mistakenly labeled Pinot Noir, among other things, Charbono is also known as raffish-sounding Douce Noir in France, where it’s also rare (but don’t cry for Bonarda, which turns out to be the same grape, widely planted in Argentina). For fans, the grape wins on character—it makes a supple and buoyantly fruity wine at relatively low alcohol levels. This one’s got the aroma of dried blueberries and leather, but tannins as soft and plush as a Persian cat. I would pair with goat cheese, and leave it at that. Kachina Vineyards, 4551 Dry Creek Road, Healdsburg. Tastings by appointment only, Thursday–Monday; $10. 707.332.0854.

Preserving P reserving wha what at yyou o ou lo love ve ab about out Sonoma Sonoma County Co ountty

In the Whitmanian sense of the expression, the North Bay contains multitudes when it comes to outdoor adventures. Thing is, there are so many outdoors destinations, you might as well pick a few, get in the car and save some for next time. Life’s short, but let’s hope it’s not that short. And jeez, there’s more than enough natural splendor to enjoy just looking out the window of your car. Walt Whitman, who coined the multitudes phrase in his poem “Song of Myself,” was an inveterate beachcomber in his 19th-century day. Ol’ Walt would have flipped out over the 70,000 sublime and accessible acres of Point Reyes National Seashore, the vast and rugged coastal redoubt in Marin County where one can spend a day or a month or a life getting blissfully lost and found in nature. A recent morning found your Bohemian scribe on a hike out to Limantour Beach. It’s an exquisite, white-sand stretch of total abject pleasure along Drakes Bay. And it’s just a few steps from parking lot to beach. On a recent visit to Point Reyes, and despite the warning signs, I did not encounter any Fukushima flotsam (or jetsam, for that matter) as I walked a mile or so down the beach. But it was very cool to score a large piece of weathered, blue beach glass, a rarity for collectors of such things. Limantour beach is friendly to families and free-spirited nudists alike, if the light crowd on a recent weekday morning was any indication. Another nearby bonus for an overnight sensation, if you are so inclined, is the nearby Point Reyes National Seashore Hostel, the only on-site lodging in the park, where a bed can be had for as little as $25 a night. But I had miles to go before sleep on this daylong, three-county roundabout adventure. Next stop, Bodega Bay. Before

heading up the coast, I pulled in to Point Reyes Station for some coffee from the legendary Bovine Bakery. Now I was ready to hit the highway, jacked on caffeine with the Dead Kennedys cranking in the cassette deck, and the fog rolling across the coast. When you get to Bodega Bay, we suggest you drive out to the marina area and wander for a while among the fleet here, but don’t bother the crows—they’re deadly, sayeth Hitchcock. Just as you’re heading out of town to the north, keep an eye for the Bodega Dunes Campground. It’s a state campsite and you’ll need to book it in advance, but the campground is centrally located and provides a great and inexpensive ($35 a night) launch point if you’re spending a few days in Bodega Bay and don’t want to drop $275 on a tony B&B experience (though we recommend that, too, if you can swing it). Now that you’ve got Bodega Bay in the rearview mirror, the rugged Sonoma coastline beckons for a few more miles northward—and then there it is, the mighty Russian River and, with it, a fork in the road. As Yogi Berra famously said, take the fork. Scenic Route 116 runs along the river awhile before you hit the fringes of civilized Sonoma County, and there are lots of places to stop off and hike, bike, swim or whatever suits your fancy. There are canoe rentals in Forestville and there’s Armstrong Redwood State Park in Guerneville, where you can also rent kayaks, or head to Steelhead Beach on the river. The road was long and winding as I made my way toward Napa County, and the final destination of the day: the Petrified Forest in Calistoga. Oh darn, it was closed. Instead, I regretfully reflected back to the petrified wood I saw in the nude section of Limantour beach. When you’re playing resident tourist, it pays to plan ahead.—Tom Gogola

The North Bay is home to some outstanding music destinations. The most recent addition, Sonoma State University’s Green Music Center, is truly a masterpiece of sonic architecture. Modeled after the famed Ozawa Hall at Tanglewood in Massachusetts, the main hall at the GMC is the aural equivalent of a cashmere blanket. Warm, rich, luxurious sound emanates from the maple stage, filling the 2,000-seat hall with the sounds of a trio, solo piano or full symphony orchestra with choir. The likes of Yo-Yo Ma and Lang Lang have graced the stage, and on April 27 violinist Hilary Hahn (the 34-year-old virtuoso was named Time magazine’s best young classical musician in 2011) come to play. But it’s not just about high society here. There are plenty of student and faculty ensembles taking the stage, with ticket prices sometimes in the single digits. In a stunning transformation, the home of the Santa Rosa Symphony opens its rear wall to a sloped grass field for afternoon picnic performances, giving a view of the musicians inside, without having to worry about a toddler’s impatience ruining the mood. At the opposite end of the spectrum is the Bottlerock festival in Napa, running May 30– June 1. Music festivals are not unique, especially in California, but with headliners this year like the Cure and Outkast (who also headlined Coachella), it’s an event that many are planning vacations around. After a popular success (and business disaster) in its first year, the show is back with a renewed focus on music and, vendors hope, paying its bills on time. Add to it the location—the center of world-renowned Napa Valley—and there arises the niche. Winetasting and culinary adventure await festivalgoers, and we’re not talking three-buck Chuck and greasy pizza. There will be sushi, there will be artisan tacos with handmade tortillas,

there will be boutique wine. Of course, winetasting in Napa isn’t a new concept, but having dozens of wineries and high-end food choices at a music festival setting sure is. And to top it off, it’s at the Napa Expo Center, officially making it the coolest thing ever to happen at the Napa Expo Center. Napa’s summer music scene is not just about expensive music festivals. Take, for example, the wonderful walking tour that is Porchfest. That veranda isn’t just for sittin’ anymore; it’s for pickin’, grinnin’, strummin’, bowin’, drummin’ and singin’. The historic porches of Napa are a sight on their own, but add some ol’ timey music, and they become a musical delight. Fifty porches in the city are on the books for this year’s free festival on July 27, and so far, more than 70 bands have signed up to play—that’s right, bands just sign up for a spot and they’re in. No booking agents, no radio payola, no radius clauses—just music. Some are intimate concerts to passersby, some are full-blown blanket-and-chairs events, depending on the location and musical guest. Picnics are encouraged, as there are no $3 bottles of water for sale, nor are there souvenir hats or foam fingers. This is about the music, plain and simple. Young bands, old bands, folk bands, rock bands—with so much music going on, there’s bound to be something everyone can enjoy. If all this feel-good acoustic music stirs dead memories to life—Grateful Dead memories, that is—there are a couple pf great spots in Marin County to reminisce: Terrapin Crossroads, founded by Dead bassist Phil Lesh, and Sweetwater Music Hall, opened by Dead guitarist Bob Weir. The two spots have featured former Dead members and their friends regularly, and you never know when Lesh or Weir might be feeling saucy enough to jump on the stage and jam with the band. But the entertainment extends beyond just the Dead—both feature big names on a weekly


It’s not just a clever name; there are no dining tables at K&A Take Away.

basis, like the Chris Robinson Brotherhood, who play a threeevening residence at Terrapin at the end of April, and Michael Franti with members of RatDog, playing Sweetwater on April 30. Both feature local favorites, too, like the Easy Leaves and Dirty Cello. With music served up nightly (and during daylight hours on weekends), it’s time to get truckin’ down Shakedown Street to Terrapin Station with a friend of the devil.—Nicolas Grizzle

Food & Drink What and where to eat and drink are important questions that carry special significance in the North Bay. The choices are bewildering. Here are a handful of places on my short list. I’ll start from western Sonoma County, head down to Marin County and cross over in Napa County. Eating at the Casino Bar and Grill for the first time nearly four years ago helped seal the deal on my move to the area. The Bodega restaurant-in-a-75-year-old-bar is run by a changing lineup of chefs who whip up a new menu every night from a tiny kitchen in the town’s watering hole/gathering place. I’m partial to Mark Malicki.

Simply check Casino’s Facebook page to see what’s for dinner. Recent standouts include rabbit rillettes, Sriracha chile crab, short rib pot stickers and smoked salmon. That’s a far cry from the peanuts and pretzels served at most bars. On sunny days, eating barbecued oysters and sipping cold IPA out on the little patio is a quintessential West County experience. I’ve long been a fan of the Tomales Bakery, but K&A Take Away is my new favorite. The 240-square-foot shop was once the town’s post office, but now the diminutive space is a showcase for Amy Carpenter’s inventive sausage sandwiches. The selftaught sausage maker always has Italian links and bratwurst on the menu, but she saves the third slot for something creative like date and orange chicken sausage or curry-potato chicken sausage. Don’t miss her great side dishes like the sweet potato and poblano chile salad or quinoa, roasted carrot and black bean salad. The name is more than a rhyme. K&A Take Away has nowhere to sit, so you will be taking your food to go. Western Marin and Sonoma counties ) 25

Beef at Thistle Meats looks ready for grilling.

SANTA ROSA Saturday, April 26, 6pm have become a destination for cheese lovers. But if you call this place home, your trip to cheese nirvana is a short one. Point Reyes Station’s Cow Girl Creamery is justly known as a cheese wonderland, and Santa Rosa’s Oliver’s Market has an equally strong cheese selection, particularly when it comes to local cheese. Freestone Artisan Cheese is the newest cheesemonger on the block . The little shop specializes in local cheeses, including some hardto-find ones like the excellent Bleating Heart and Barinaga Ranch sheep’s milk cheese. The other thing that gets me into the shop is the Olive Tree Hills olive oil on tap. The Sebastopol-grown oil is delicious and affordable. Bring your own bottle and fill ’er up. Kombucha is a great alternative to soda pop, and Windsor’s Revive kombucha is my favorite by far, but did you know there is another probiotic beverage made

in Sebastopol? Get in on the trend early and check out the Kefiry, makers of a great assortment of water kefir. You’ve probably had milk kefir, but water kefir is dairy-free and has the same beneficial bugs in it. I don’t go for the stomach-friendly bacteria but, rather, the great flavors they swim in—O.M.G. Chocolate, Guayusa Cola and Tulsi Rose are some of my faves. Next stop, Thistle Meats. The seven-week-old butcher shop in downtown Petaluma is a beauty. While many people will focus on the fact that the butcher shop is run by the lovely Molly Best and Lisa Modica (I can already see the glossy Sunset and Bon Appétit magazine spreads), it’s the quality meat and sausage that will earn them a reputation. The impeccably clean, whitetiled shop specializes in whole animal butchery from a who’s who of local, responsibly minded meat producers. In addition to house-aged cuts of meat

and sausage, they serve a hearty sandwich of the day made on crusty Della bakery ciabatta. Further down the road in Larkspur, Bel Campo Meats is another meat palace. The butcher shop and restaurant sources all its meat from its own ranch in Mt. Shasta, giving new meaning to the term farm-to-table. Like Thistle, the meat is pricey, but that’s how it should be. Just eat less of it. Socalled cheap meat exacts a much higher price on the environment and on animal welfare. Bel Campo’s burger with beef fat-fried fries will make you a believer. Heading east to Napa County, the attraction is, of course, wine. But how does one avoid the tour bus crowds and all those nonresident tourists? You gotta know where to go. Velo Vino Clif Family Winery, the winery from the Clif Bar folks, caters to enophiles and cyclists alike with cycling maps to various Napa Valley bikes routes and a cycling theme. St. Helena’s Raymond Vineyards has a guest house for dogs and lots of funky, cool stuff like the crystal cellar

tasting area. The rustic feel of Rustridge Ranch and Winery isn’t painted on. It’s real. The winery is on a horse ranch and offers a guesthouse if you want to spend the night. If you appreciate serious Cabernet Sauvignon, make a pilgrimage up to Spring Mountain to Cain Vineyard and Winery. Stagecoach Vineyard offers winetasting, of course, but it also has 60- or 90-minute tours of the stunning 1,100-acre property. On a clear day, you can see all the way to San Francisco. While many of the best things in life are free, some are definitely not. To my fellow resident tourists I’d argue that it’s worth dining at St. Helena’s Meadowood restaurant at least once. Along with French Laundry, which will soon reopen in a new location, Meadowood is the only North Bay restaurant with three Michelin stars. Executive chef Christopher Kostow’s cooking is hard to pin down, but let’s go with cerebral and madly, creatively, out-of-thisworld delicious. Happy travels.—Stett Holbrook

Straight from the city of love, Paris Combo craft a distinctly Parisian mix of bright jazz horns, smooth bass riffs and demure vocals, and their bubbly fun is never more apparent than on their latest release, 5. The band’s first album in as many years, 5 is also their most lauded effort, an eclectic and energized collection filled with all the romanticism and joie de vivre that has been their staple sound since they formed in the mid-1990s. Paris Combo appear April 17, at the Napa Valley Opera House, 1030 Main St., Napa. 8pm. $25–$35. 707.226.7372.

SEDUCTIVE Eva D’Luscious performs burlesque at Christy’s on the Square in Santa Rosa.

Some Like It Hot Cabaret de Caliente turns up the heat on the local burlesque scene BY CHARLIE SWANSON

I

t’s an American tradition often misunderstood and maligned, but there’s nothing wrong with burlesque.

Back in the days of vaudeville, it was a spectacle to be seen—all feather boas and bawdy humor, with exotic variety shows and striptease dances that leaned heavily on the tease. Only after the advent of Playboy and adult entertainment did the “tease” lose out to the “strip” and

burlesque become taboo. But that’s been changing in the past decade, as a new empowered generation of dancers and performers have taken burlesque back and revived its glory days—which is exactly what Eva D’Luscious is doing now in the North Bay. A life-long dancer, D’Luscious (her stage name) discovered burlesque while living in San Francisco. Pioneering troupes in the ’90s like the Hubba Hubba Revue and L.A.’s Velvet Hammer brought back the glamour in full

and left their mark on D’Luscious. “There was a Tease-O-Rama [show] that I went to years ago in the City,” she says. “And just seeing the ladies up there, how much fun they were having and how clever they were in their acts, I decided when the time is right, I’m going to go do that.” The mother of two now lives in Sebastopol, and began her burlesque career just five years ago. Her first lessons in burlesque came from legends like Satan’s Angel and Bombshell

Betty. D’Luscious now teaches workshops herself and has performed everywhere from the Bay Area to Burning Man. “It just hooked me,” says D’Luscious of her first foray into burlesque. “To go into a place where you’re so vulnerable and open but everybody’s cheering for you and supporting you—that’s what I try to pass along, too.” Three years ago, she cofounded Cabaret de Caliente, producing burlesque events in cooperation with community-minded groups and venues around Sonoma County. Just this year, the group began its latest event series, at Christy’s on the Square in downtown Santa Rosa. “I was trying to figure out, ‘What does Sonoma County like?’ and then I had this ‘a-ha’ moment, like ‘Oh, they like booze and food! Of course!’” laughs D’Luscious. “Specifically wine—and I like sparkling wine. And it goes so well with burlesque.” On April 17, Cabaret de Caliente presents its new disco-themed “Bubbly Burlesque” show at Christy’s on the Square, pairing local sparkling wines from Chandon with cupcakes from Cupcravery. D’Luscious serves as master of ceremonies. “Bubbly Burlesque” joins a schedule of shows that also includes the “Solstice Seduction” revue at Hopmonk Sebastopol and the “Shake for Me” Led Zeppelin tribute. In contrast to those who see burlesque as exploitive, D’Luscious believes it emboldens those who perform it. “We all create this atmosphere of encouragement, and I think that’s still kind of a revolutionary thing in our society.” ‘Bubbly Burlesque’ takes place Thursday, April 17, at Christy’s on the Square. 96 Old Courthouse Square, Santa Rosa. 8pm. $10–$40. www.cabaretdecaliente.com

Power Chords NTCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Next to Normalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; rocks like crazy

BY DAVID TEMPLETON

W

hen I ďŹ rst heard the original cast recording of Next to Normal, Brian Yorkey and Tom Kittâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pulitzer-winning rock musical about mental illness and pharmacology, I was knocked out by it. A couple years later, when the touring production came to San Francisco, with original star Alice Ripley in the role that won her a Tony, I was underwhelmed by the phoned-in performances and slick blandness of the enterprise. But since my ďŹ rst impression came from listening to the album, I held ďŹ rm to the belief that, under the right circumstances, Next to Normal could be as good onstage as it was in my headphones. Turns out I was right. Under the brilliant direction of Kim Bromley, Novato Theater

Companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s staging is intimate, accessible and rawâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and the cast performs the hell out of the show. In Bromleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hands, the bombast of the touring production gives way to an understated yet intense experience, keeping the humor alive while never blinking in the glare of the playâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s harsher observations. Diana Goodman (Alison Peltz) is a wife and mother who seems fairly typical as the play begins: a little bored with her life, amiably at odds with her teenage children, unable to sleep some nights but otherwise OK. Then, without warning, she has a full-on psychotic break, manically making sandwiches on the kitchen ďŹ&#x201A;oor. The episode is witnessed, with weary dismay, by her overachieving daughter, Natalie (Julianne Thompson), and her husband, Dan (Anthony Martinez), and we realize that this is not the ďŹ rst time Diana has gone around the bend. After 16 years of daily medicinal treatment, her bipolar disorder is beginning to exhibit schizophrenic symptoms as well, and against the protests of her son, Gabe (Fernando Siu), Diana agrees to try a new doctor, the rock-star psychiatrist Dr. Madden (Sean Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien). Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s part of the playâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s power that Dianaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s subsequent journey through a series of therapiesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;including electroshock, portrayed as a powerrock, dance-dream sequenceâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;is treated with a stunning lack of judgment or preachiness. These are real, identiďŹ able people, and their painâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and biting sense of humorâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;is both highly relatable and deeply inspiring. The remarkably strong music, under the excellent direction of Lucas Sherman, is tight and rock-solid, carrying Next to Normal to its bittersweet ending on a powerful wave of sheer, beautiful, fully electric passion and power. Rating (out of 5): +++++ â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Next to Normalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; runs Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x201C; Sunday through April 27 at the NTC Playhouse. 5420 Nave Drive, Novato. Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Saturday, 8pm; 3pm matinees on Sunday. $15â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$25. 415.226.9353.

Unknowable Donald Rumsfeld remains elusive in Errol Morris’ new documentary BY RICHARD VON BUSACK

I

n head-and-shoulders closeup, Donald Rumsfeld shares some anecdotes from his life as a public servant—first as a Congressman, later as a special envoy and finally, and ruinously, as Secretary of Defense in the George W. Bush administration.

In Errol Morris’ Known Unknown, you get the answer to how Rummy sleeps at night, not that the question is asked in so many words. Rumsfeld was right, and when he wasn’t right, it was because the definition of the phrase “he was wrong” is too restrictive. Besides, no one could have foreseen what was over the hill. So again he was right. If necessary, Rumsfeld can cast a passive sentence so that the “he” in it vanishes utterly. A wasted moment in the film occurs during the revisitation of Rumsfeld’s meeting with Sadaam in 1983, when he’s seen greeting the dictator with a smile and a handshake. Asked about the incident, Rumsfeld shifts the ground without opposition from his questioner. Morris loses the

chance to prompt Rumsfeld back from his memories as Man of Diplomacy to the matter of the consequences of encouraging Sadaam. Known Unknown is a minor and sometimes agonizing film, not just because of the eel-like subject or because we endured the Rumsfeld Show for years. There are tedious stylistic quirks Morris recycles from previous efforts, such as the timelapsed sun, rising and falling, as cars zizz by on the Koyaanisqatsi Expressway and as Danny Elfman pays tribute to Philip Glass. In the end, it seems there’s too much that’s been put off-limits here. We’re never treated to what it was like for this political animal to be locked out of power. Instead, we get Rumsfeld shedding a few grateful tears at our luck as a nation. Our nation will not survive much more of Rumsfeld’s kind of luck. Rather than telling it to the camera, Rumsfeld should be telling it to a judge. ‘The Known Unknown’ is screening at Summerfield Cinemas, 551 Summerfield Road, Santa Rosa. 707.522.0719.

The frontman of folk-punks the Crux, Windmiller is increasingly involved in the music community, from the stage to behind the scenes, booking shows around the area under the umbrella of the North Bay Hootenanny. Since 2010, the Hootenanny has been a part of several local festivals, such as Petaluma’s Rivertown Revival, and regularly occurring shows at venues like the now defunct Last Day Saloon. When the Saloon went belly up, Windmiller had to make other arrangements. He met Sheana Davis, owner of the Epicurean Connection in Sonoma in 2013. Davis was interested in throwing great parties at her cafe, and the Hootenanny was the perfect match. Now the Epicurean Connection has become the new home base of many Hootenanny events, integrating the county’s lively local scene in an exciting venue. This weekend, the North Bay Hootenanny presents Marin songwriter and flutist Keady Phelan on April 18, Sonoma County Cajun rockers T-Luke and the Tight Suits on April 19 and Americana master Dave Hamilton on April 20. The Hootenanny continues this trend of local showcases throughout the year at the Epicurean Connection. Check the calendar for future events.—Charlie Swanson

ARIES (March 21-April 19) Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Compensation Week. If you have in the past suffered from injustice, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an excellent time to go in quest of restitution. If you have been deprived of the beauty you need to thrive, now is the time to get ďŹ lled up. Wherever your life has been out of balance, you have the power to create more harmony. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be shy about seeking redress. Ask people to make amends. Pursue restorations. But donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, under any circumstances, lust for revenge. TAURUS (April 20â&#x20AC;&#x201C;May 20)

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our brains are no longer conditioned for reverence and awe,â&#x20AC;? said novelist John Updike. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a sad possibility. Could you please do something to dispute or override it, Taurus? Would it be too much to ask if I encouraged you to go out in quest of lyrical miracles that ďŹ ll you with wonder? Can I persuade you to be alert for sweet mysteries that provoke dizzying joy and uncanny breakthroughs that heal a wound youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve feared might forever plague you? Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what the astrological omens suggest: phenomena that stir reverence and awe are far more likely than usual.

GEMINI (May 21â&#x20AC;&#x201C;June 20) I wonder if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time for you to modify an old standby. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m getting the sense that you should consider tinkering with a familiar resource that has served you pretty well. Why? This resource may have some hidden weakness that you need to attend to in order to prevent a future disruption. Now might be one of those rare occasions when you should ignore the old rule, â&#x20AC;&#x153;If it ainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t broke, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ďŹ x it.â&#x20AC;? So be proactive, Gemini. Investigate whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going on beneath the surface. Make this your motto: â&#x20AC;&#x153;I will solve the problem before itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a problemâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and then it will never be a problem.â&#x20AC;? CANCER (June 21â&#x20AC;&#x201C;July 22) â&#x20AC;&#x153;Do you really have what it takes or do you not have what it takes?â&#x20AC;? Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the wrong question to ask, in my opinion. You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t possibly know the answer ahead of time, for one thing. To dwell on that quandary would put you on the defensive and activate your fear, diminishing your power to accomplish the task at hand. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a more useful inquiry: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Do you want it strongly enough or do you not want it strongly enough?â&#x20AC;? With this as your meditation, you might be inspired to do whateverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s necessary to pump up your desire. And that is the single best thing you can do to ensure your ultimate success. LEO (July 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;August 22) I swear my meditations are more dynamic when I hike along the trail through the marsh than if Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m pretzeled up in the lotus position back in my bedroom. Maybe Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been inďŹ&#x201A;uenced by Aristotleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Peripatetic school. He felt his students learned best when they accompanied him on long strolls. Then there was philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche, who testiďŹ ed that his most brilliant thoughts came to him as he rambled far and wide. Even if this possibility seems whimsical to you, Leo, I invite you to give it a try. According to my reading of the current astrological omens, your moving body is likely to generate bright ideas and unexpected solutions and visions of future adventures. VIRGO (August 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;September 22) Throughout North America and Europe, there are hundreds of unused roads. Many are former exit and entrance ramps to major highways, abandoned for one reason or another. Some are stretches of pavement that used to be parts of main thoroughfares before they were rerouted. I suggest we make â&#x20AC;&#x153;unused roadsâ&#x20AC;? your metaphor of the week, Virgo. It may be time for you to bring some of them back into operation, and maybe even relink them to the pathways they were originally joined to. Are there any missing connections in your life that you would love to restore? Any partial bridges you feel motivated to ďŹ nish building? LIBRA (September 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;October 22) Karma works both ways. If you do ignorant things, ignorant things may eventually be done to you. Engage in generous actions, and at some future date you may be the unexpected beneďŹ ciary of generosity. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m expecting more of the latter than the former for you in the coming days, Libra. I think fate will bring you sweet compensations for your enlightened behavior in the past. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m reminded of the fairy tale in which a peasant girl goes out of her way to be kind to a seemingly

feeble, disabled old woman. The crone turns out to be a good witch who rewards the girl with a bag of gold. But as I hinted, there could also be a bit of that other kind of karma lurking in your vicinity. Would you like to ward it off? All you have to do is unleash a ďŹ&#x201A;urry of good deeds. Any time you have a chance to help people in need, do it.

SCORPIO (October 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;November 21)

As they lie in the sand, African crocodiles are in the habit of opening their jaws wide for hours at a time. It keeps them cool, and allows for birds called plovers to stop by and pluck morsels of food that are stuck between the crocsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; molars. The relationship is symbiotic. The teeth-cleaners eat for free as they provide a service for the large reptiles. As I analyze your astrological aspects, Scorpio, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m inclined to see an opportunity coming your way that has a certain resemblance to the ploversâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Can you summon the necessary trust and courage to take full advantage?

SAGITTARIUS (November 22â&#x20AC;&#x201C;December 21) Are you sure you have enough obstacles? Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m afraid youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re running low. And that wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be healthy, would it? Obstacles keep you honest, after all. They motivate you to get smarter. They compel you to grow your willpower and develop more courage. Please understand that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not talking about trivial and boring obstacles that make you numb. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m referring to scintillating obstacles that ďŹ re up your imagination, rousing obstacles that excite your determination to be who you want and get what you want. So your assignment is to acquire at least one new interesting obstacle. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to tap into a deeper strain of your ingenuity. CAPRICORN (December 22â&#x20AC;&#x201C;January 19) In 1937, physicist George Paget Thomson won a Nobel Prize for the work he did to prove that the electron is a wave. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s funny, because his father, physicist J. J. Thomson, was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1906 for showing that the electron is a particle. Together, they helped tell the whole story about the electron, which as we now know is both a wave and a particle. I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an excellent time for you to try something similar to what George did: follow up on some theme from the life of one of your parents or mentors; be inspired by what he or she did, but also go beyond it; build on a gift he or she gave the world, extending or expanding it. AQUARIUS (January 20â&#x20AC;&#x201C;February 18) You have been a pretty decent student lately, Aquarius. The learning curve was steep, but you mastered it as well as could be expected. You had to pay more attention to the intricate details than you liked, which was sometimes excruciating, but you summoned the patience to tough it out. Congrats! Your against-thegrain effort was worth it. You are deďŹ nitely smarter now than you were four weeks ago. But you are more wired, too. More stressed. In the next chapter of your life story, you will need some downtime to integrate all youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve absorbed. I suggest you schedule some sessions in a sanctuary where you can relax more deeply than youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve allowed yourself to relax in a while. PISCES (February 19â&#x20AC;&#x201C;March 20) You have the power to shut what has been open or open what has been shut. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of responsibility. Just because you have the power to unleash these momentous actions doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean you should rashly do so. Make sure your motivations are pure and your integrity is high. Try to keep fear and egotism from inďŹ&#x201A;uencing you. Be aware that whatever you do will send out ripples for months to come. And when you are conďŹ dent that you have taken the proper precautions, by all means proceed with vigor and rigor. Shut what has been open or open what has been shutâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;or both.
