Rhapsodies BOHEMIAN

Taking Aim at the NRA Hats off to the Florida high school students for taking the lead for a sane gun policy in America. To keep things moving forward, let me be the first to suggest the National Rifle Association be considered a domestic terrorist organization, and dealt with as such. The NRA has successfully defeated every attempt at banning the assault weapons that are now killing scores of innocent Americans on a regular basis. They

own the president and a majority of Congress. We’re learning the NRA is now international in scope, having moved money from Russia to our last election for the purpose of electing a man who is creating domestic havoc. They have no suggestions on ending the mass murders other than “more guns.” Really? There is absolutely no reason for a sane, law-abiding member of our society to own what is essentially a machine gun. The NRA has ensured that every misfit who wants a mass murder weapon has ready access to one.

THIS MODERN WORLD

Yes, I know, the Constitution grants the right to “bear arms,” but we impose reasonable limits. Citizens are not free to own bombs or rocket launchers, so why automatic weapons? To our neighbors who may be NRA members, please take some time to consider what your gun club has become. It’s no longer about the best deer rifle or teaching junior how to plink cans with grandpa’s .22; it’s about enabling mass murderers. Maybe it’s time for high school students to run the show.

Special Treatment This is an open letter to the Santa Rosa City Council. Speaking in favor of including parts of downtown in multiple districts in its new plan, Mayor Chris Coursey said, “It’s not a gift to the business community. It’s a recognition that this is the most vital part of the city.” It left me wondering if Mayor Coursey actually understands the concept of democracy. Democracy is one person, one vote, and everyone registered to vote in Santa Rosa is free to vote for the candidate most likely to represent their economic interests, if they so desire. But businesses and their owners are no more important in a democracy than all those individuals who are not part of the downtown business community. Districts are required because the wealthier and more business-connected individuals in Santa Rosa have had too much representation for far too long. This gerrymandering of the districts seems an intentional subversion of the remedy that districting is supposed to try to alleviate. Citizens may decide to vote for downtown interests, or not. That is their right. It is not your right to make that decision for them in advance.

Common Cause Adults must stand with youth on gun-law reform BY ALISSA HIRSHFELD-FLORES

T

his past month has brought a new push toward gun control like none befo re. The Parkland shooting has brought forth a movement from a group previously dismissed: teenagers. I feel hopeful in watching these young people speaking out. They are inspiring to those of us in generations before them.

We adults must be moved to action, too. Our country is long overdue for a serious conversation on gun control. We must insist on it—from each other, from our local, state and federal officials. We owe it to our children and ourselves. On Capitol Hill, we must insist on getting big money out of politics. The NRA should not be able to buy votes and keep votes from coming to the floor. The NRA should only get a vote via its individual members and the ones they cast. Anything more is inappropriate and needs to be called out. These are our representatives, and they need to answer to us. It stands to reason that the people worried about having their guns taken away are perhaps proving they aren’t fit to own them in the first place. I understand that might be an inflammatory statement, but it speaks to the truth I witness daily. People who speak in fear and paranoia, not rooted in any logic, are not the sort of people who should be allowed a weapon that can kill in a split second. Can we at least agree on that? The DMV requires drivers to register car, pass a test showing competence and get a license proving their driving capabilities. There is nothing wrong with us requiring the same for guns. In supporting the younger set, and their national walkout, we must come alongside as allies and do our own due diligence. We owe it to them. Alissa Hirshfeld-Flores, MFT, lives in Santa Rosa.

Dining SPECIAL SAUCE Musa Awad’s classic Middle Eastern sando is deliciously messy.

Taste of Home Burgers may be king at D’s, but don’t miss the falafel sandwich BY STETT HOLBROOK

A

t D’s Diner, Sonoma County’s perennial best diner in the Bohemian’s Best Of readers poll (they won again this year), you’d expect the burgers to be good. And they are.

Mel’s Magic Burger (a bacon cheddar cheeseburger) is the topselling item on the menu. Primus’ Les Claypool wrote an ode to D’s

that praises the Caliente burger. I like the burgers, too, but it’s a nontraditional diner item that stands out: the falafel sandwich. Musa Awad has owned D’s for 10 years, but only put falafel on the menu five years ago. Awad, a Palestinian from Ramallah, understands that American diner fare is his bread and butter and he didn’t want to detract from that, but he also wanted to share his passion for falafel. “We wanted to introduce people to our food,” Awad says. “It was

always my dream to sell falafels. And they just flew. They sell quite a bit.” In Palestine, and the Middle East in general, the falafel is the equivalent of the hamburger, everyday food available from street vendors and cafes. There’s a debate over who invented the dish. The Israelis and Palestinians both lay claim to it. Awad, as you might guess, credits the Palestinians. “In Palestine, the falafel is very particular,” he says. Awad imports

a mixture from his hometown that’s a blend of ground cumin, coriander, nutmeg and caraway. He stores the mixture in a large, yellow plastic canister that looks like it once held mustard. He holds the container up to his nose and inhales deeply before handing it to his daughter Nadeen and beckoning her to do the same. “What does this smell remind you of?” She takes a whiff of the heady aroma. “Ramallah,” she replies, joining him in smile and a faraway look. To make falafel, he adds the spices to garbanzo beans that have soaked in water for 18 hours, then adds fresh parsley, cilantro, jalapeño, garlic and onions, grinds it all up and empties the mixture into a large bowl. “You mix it like you’re making pizza dough,” says Awad. “You mix it by hand.” He says he doesn’t have a recipe. He goes by taste and feedback from his family. From there, the batter is formed into balls and fried in oil. Each sandwich ($6.50) gets a generous four balls of falafel. The falafel balls, tahini, hummus, diced tomatoes, cucumbers, thin pickles and lettuce, are stuffed into a commodious pita bread that somehow holds together in spite of the load it carries. The bread is delivered from Jerusalem Bakery, a specialty baker in Sacramento. It’s a great sandwich. My only quibble would be the out-ofseason tomatoes. They don’t add much, and I picked them out. A falafel sandwich should be verging on messy—dripping hummus, tahini and all the condiments. On its own, a falafel is flavorful but rather dry. It needs the creamy richness of hummus and the lemony bite of tahini sauce and pickles to complement it. And that it does. Awad had fond memories of his father bringing falafel home when he was a child. “It was a treat.” He makes his falafels with the same affection. “You have to put your heart and soul into it,” he says. “Otherwise, it won’t taste good.” D’s Diner, 7260 Healdsburg Ave., Sebastopol. 707.829.8080.

Barrel Brothers a welcome addition to craft-brew scene BY JAMES KNIGHT

L

ocation, location, location? No doubt that’s still a viable mantra in the domains of real estate and restaurants. But for breweries recently launched in the thick of craft-brew revolution 2.0, like Barrel Brothers Brewing in Windsor? Not really. It’s just about beer, beer, beer.

The Barrel Brothers have had no trouble tempting the thirsty to their out-of-the-way taproom, tucked in an industrial court behind a Home Depot and shared with discount flooring and auto shops. It’s actually a newer and somewhat snazzy industrial court. The

taproom opens via rollup door, displaying ping pong and foosball tables in an area that the brewery expanded into in the fall of 2017. Originally, I’m told, brothers-in-law Wesley Deal and Daniel Weber planned a production-only facility, but opened a small tasting room to satiate thirsty and curious beer fans. Don’t expect a brewpub—some of the only food on sale is jerky, but on the upside, your well-behaved pooch may crunch on similar treats while you sample the goldenhued Naughty Hops IPA, a lightly pine-scented IPA sweetened with a hint of caramel, or the floral March Fadness New England–style hazy IPA (a trend-chaser with a delightfully sardonic moniker). The double IPAs here seem to mainly up the malt, not the hops, despite the roster on the helpfully info-heavy beer menu: at 9.5 percent alcohol by volume (ABV), Hello Dankness, My Old Friend is a strong-tasting IPA more reminiscent of ye olde barley wine. Before I drove away, I forgot to taste (perhaps fortuitously) a strong ale called Bamboozelry that claims to be 20 percent ABV! The brewery’s flagship porter, Dark Sarcasm, is sold in bottles and cans in the brewery and on the market. At 7 percent ABV, it’s a slightly sweet, chocolate and coffeeinflected “meal in a glass” porter that hits the right balance between creamy and bitter. An alluring, tangy, barrel-aged version of this beer is called Black Velvet. I wanted to like a sour, barrelaged beer called Leatherbound Books (available by the bottle for $18), and I did—made with dried cherries, figs, dates, prunes and blackcurrants, and a host of funky bacteria, then aged for months in Pinot Noir barrels, it’s still as fresh tasting as a cherry cider or a young Beaujolais. But if it’s not quite as beguiling as the Duchesse de Bourgogne that it aspires to, well, just add time, time, time. Barrel Brothers Brewing Company, 399 Business Park Court #506, Windsor. Samples, $3–$4.50 per five ounces; 10 ounces, $4–$9; basic pints, $5.50. Monday–Friday, 4–8pm; Saturday–Sunday, 1–8pm. 707.696.9487.

‘COPS’ UNDER FIRE

Reality TV show faces tough questions from Santa Rosa officials BY TOM GOGOLA

A

s the Cops film crews roll with deputies from the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office (SCSO), there is growing pushback against the controversial reality TV show’s sudden arrival in the county last week—and questions about whether Santa Rosa Police Department will ride along with the plan.

After an SCSO-led media push celebrated the show’s arrival last week, with multiple outbreaks of the show’s theme appearing in the Press Democrat and KSRO, local elected officials are now questioning the wisdom of allowing film crews into a region hammered by the October wildfires and continuing to deal with fallout from the shooting death of 13-year-old Andy Lopez in 2013. All of that, and it’s an election year, too, which will see the first contested sheriff’s race in more than two decades. Sonoma County Supervisor Lynda Hopkins represents the part of the county where Lopez was shot by a deputy who remains on the force as a lawsuit against the SCSO and Sonoma County drags on. She wonders if Cops is in the best interest of her constituents. “Given the heightened anxiety in our community in the wake of the fires, going through a sheriff’s candidacy and election process,” she says, “I would question anything that could disrupt the fragile peace that we have right now in general.” It’s unknown at press time whether the Santa Rosa police will sign a contract with Langley Productions, the Santa Monica– based production company that produces Cops. Santa Rosa Police Chief Hank Schreeder is meeting with Santa Rosa City Council members this week and taking the pulse of the community before he makes a decision, say city council members, the city manager’s office and a spokesman for the city police force. “They are still in the planning phase as far as the contract goes,” says Santa Rosa police Lt. Rick Kohut. He says Schreeder might decide to pull the plug on Santa Rosa’s participation in the program. “I would say that it is a possibility,” Kohut says. At issue is the content of the contract and the extent to which it gives the Santa Rosa Police Department (SRPD) latitude to participate in the editing of the show. The SCSO contract signed in March gives the ) 16 sheriff’s office final say

Cops ( 15 over what clips are used. And, says Kohut, the chief is aware of the show’s controversial history of portraying policing in starkly “black-and-white” terms—often literally—and how such portrayals might be viewed as counterproductive to effective policing. “We absolutely want to avoid that,” Kohut says.

Polarizing TV But can they? Even as Langley Productions was emailing the SRPD and SCSO to solicit their interest in participation in January, the Marshall Project criminal-justice organization produced an investigative feature on Cops that declared it the “most polarizing reality show in America.” That’s a message city officials are hearing as they meet with Schreeder this week to figure out whether to sign on with Cops. Cops follows a general formula that features an opening bit of action, some reflection in the police cruiser and more action to close out the episode. The stock-in-trade of the longrunning show is the foot chase. It makes for great television—but does it provide a fair depiction of the communities where Cops has filmed? “Our city image has already been negatively impacted by the fires,” says Santa Rosa council member Julie Combs. “Tourism is already down. We don’t need an unearned and exaggerated portrayal of violent crime too. I’m not sure what the city is getting out of having such a polarizing program filmed here, especially since I don’t think the show is compensating the department, even though they are making money off of it.” Law enforcements agencies receive no financial benefit from the show’s producers. Santa Rosa Assistant City Manager Gloria Hurtado says the city is waiting on the chief’s recommendation before deciding how to proceed. His

recommendation, she says, will “weigh heavily.” “The chief is doing due diligence, asking for additional information and deciding whether this is the right thing to do at this time.”

Rocky Rollout

That’s not how the Cops producer envisioned the run-up to the show’s episodes set in Santa Rosa and Sonoma County. An email exchange between producer Zach Ragsdale and the show’s public relations firm the Lippin Group provides insight into what Cops’ producers had hoped would happen. The original plan was for the SRPD and SCSO to roll with the cameras at the same time. It’s unclear what would become of the sheriff’s office’s participation if the SRPD decides to pull the plug on Cops. Cops has come under fire for its portrayals of racial basis. In 2013, the civil rights group Color of Change successfully pushed Fox to drop the program based on its claim of persistent racial bias. It’s now on the Paramount Network. The show has changed channels, but not its treatment of race, says Arisa Hatch, Color of Change’s managing director of campaigns. She ran the Fox campaign for Color of Change in 2013. “Our concerns about the show then are the same as our concerns about the show now.” Hatch says that she wouldn’t expect any episode of Cops filmed in Sonoma County to be an accurate portrayal of the criminaljustice system there, “because it’s just not set up that way. . . . It has been kind of a [public relations] machine for police departments across the country for several decades now.” The Bohemian emailed questions to Langley Productions about racial bias, the status of the contract with SRPD and what role, if any, last year’s fires played in the selection of Sonoma County. An email exchange inadvertently sent to the Bohemian between Ragsdale, who signed the SCSO contract on behalf of Langley Productions and is the point

person on a presumptive SRPD contract, and the show’s PR firm revealed some of the producers’ thinking. “This is the first time filming with this agency [SRPD],” Ragsdale wrote to the Lippin Group. “We were supposed to start filming with them last week when we started with Sonoma County but the city was slow to get the agreement complete, so I pushed the start date for Santa Rosa PD to May. The agreement still isn’t done. I prefer to give this guy as little as possible.” The fires? The fires, Ragsdale wrote, had nothing to do with the show’s decision to come to Sonoma County. The persistent charges of racism raised by Color of Change? “You already know how to answer this one,” Ragsdale wrote to the PR firm. The answer: don’t answer it. After the back-and-forth between Ragdsale and the Lippin Group, Langley Productions provided the following statement to the Bohemian: “We are looking forward to featuring the exceptional work the men and women of the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office do everyday in upcoming episodes of Cops.”

After learning about the mistakenly sent email, Cops’ executive producer Morgan Langley weighed in: “The intent of Cops is to document the reality of policing on the ground as it happens. There is no intended bias in the show.”

Entertainment or Reality? Color of Change’s work on this issue hasn’t gone unnoticed by Santa Rosa officials. Less clear is whether anyone at SCSO is aware that Cops is considered by policeaccountability advocates to be a highly problematic program. “Studies have shown that this TV program portrays a disproportionate number of people of color than the actual percentage involved in crimes,” Combs says. “And it shows violent crimes disproportionately—and also underrepresents women and minorities on the police force itself. It also misrepresents effective police work. I think our city is better than this.” The controversy over Cops now touches on who will be Sonoma County’s next sheriff and ) 18 heightened scrutiny of

law enforcement accountability following Lopez’s death and officer-involved shootings across the country. Ernesto Olivares wears three hats in this debate as a member of the Santa Rosa City Council, a former city cop and a candidate for sheriff. He says that if it had been his decision to make, he would have said no to Cops. “My historical perspective is that it hasn’t really provided any real public benefit,” he says as he emphasizes ongoing efforts at police accountability and transparency in the county. Candidate John Mutz, a former Los Angeles police captain, says he could support Cops if it portrayed “honest transparency” in policing. At its best, he says the show portrays police officers on the beat doing a difficult job. “People have to understand that it’s a show based on ratings and entertainment,” and that if it does reflect biases, “that is not acceptable. From my POV, as sheriff, I wouldn’t participate in that kind of viewpoint. In that case, this is more of the corporatemedia coverage of crime. It is not helpful and is strictly entertainment.” Mark Essick, the other candidate for sheriff, is currently on the SCSO force and did not respond to a request for comment. Chief Schreeder’s due diligence is not the typical response of local law enforcement when contacted by Cops, says Hatch. In her study of the show, she has never seen a situation where “there is an effort to get community buy-in, and it’s part of the normal [public relations] machine that has been intentionally set up.” “It might be rare, but it’s not rare in Santa Rosa,” says Olivares, who likens Schreeder’s effort to the city’s recent rollout of body-cameras. “When Schreeder introduced body cameras, he initiated input throughout the community to help shape the policy.” Not so at SCSO, which did not reach out for community input before signing the contract

with Cops on Feb. 7. The show’s producer told the sheriff’s office that SRPD would be participating. Sheriff’s office spokesman Sgt. Spencer Crum says SCSO had not consulted with SRPD “at all about their decision to be involved. Don’t know their decisions, other than a Cops producer told us they had agreed.” Crum has praise for the show and did not address questions about bias. “Cops provides a platform to provide information to the public on the good work being done by Sonoma County deputies and the challenges they face on the streets,” Crum said in response to a set of emailed questions. “It’s also a chance to showcase how far along policing, training and community relations have come since Cops started filming 31 years ago.” The SCSO’s work with Cops had nothing to do with ongoing fallout from the Lopez incident, says Crum, who adds that the sheriff’s office based its decision on input from the Stockton Police Department, where Cops recently filmed. “The filming of Cops was widely accepted by the community, the elected leaders and their individual officers.” Crum believes policeaccountability groups would appreciate the sheriff’s office’s efforts to provide “better transparency on a local and a national level.” Hatch, for one, does not. “The show never tackles accountability,” says Hatch. “It paints a one-sided view of law enforcement. At its worst, Cops is very cheap to produce, and it’s a very dangerous television show,” she says, noting that police officers can and do perform for the cameras, as she highlights that there is no profit or benefit to the community. The profits go to the Paramount Network, “and those are the people who are profiteering off of the pain of the individuals and the community. There is nothing to gain for Sonoma in Cops coming to town.”

Poetic Combo

Within the extensive Laguna de Santa Rosa watershed are gathering places for plants and animals called vernal pools. These water spots, collected after winter and spring rains, change in location and size from year to year, meaning that the tiny little ecosystems within them are also constantly changing. This weekend, Laguna de Santa Rosa’s conservation science program manager Sarah Gordon reveals the many secrets hiding in these pools during Early Spring Blooms, an outing filled with surprises on Saturday, March 31, at Heron Hall, 900 Sanford Road, Santa Rosa. 9am. $25-$50. Pre-registration required. 707.527.9277.

In its fourth year as a local literary enclave, Sandra Anfang’s Rivertown Poets Amuse-ing Mondays reader series brings together both local and not-so-local poets for evenings of graceful wordplay. For National Poetry Month 2018, the event welcomes two very different poets to read their latest works. Portland, Ore., poet John Dooley is a nationally known slam poet with a penchant for sharply edged pop-culture takedowns. Bay Area poet Melissa Hobbs is a self-described idealist who infuses her works with meditative longings for peace and happiness. See them both on Monday, April 2, at Aqus Cafe, 189 H St., Petaluma. 6:15pm. Free. 707.778.6060.

Arts Ideas ‘BEAUTY FROM ASHES’ The ‘Flower Bomb’ exhibit in Calistoga features Karen Lynn Ingalls’

acrylic and ash collage ‘Beautiful Morning.’

Art in Bloom

Napa Valley’s Arts in April showcases contemporary work in new gallery BY CHARLIE SWANSON

C

reativity is blossoming in the Napa Valley.

For the past eight years, the region has welcomed spring with the month-long Arts in April showcase of exhibits and events that highlight local talent in world-class locations. In 2018, spring’s sense of renewal is juxtaposed to the region’s feelings of loss as the North Bay recovers from the destruction

of October’s wildfires. It’s a duality that longtime Calistoga resident, director of ArtQuest at Santa Rosa High School and the new gallery owner Jan Sofie understands. “Arts in April is a fabulous spring event in Napa Valley,” says Sofie, who opened Sofie Contemporary Arts gallery in the heart of downtown Calistoga with her husband, Scott, in September 2017, one month before the Tubbs fire forced the evacuation of the

entire town. “However, under the circumstances we have this new reality to face [after] the fire,” she says. “What we really need to do is not to pretend it didn’t happen, but to say, ‘It’s spring, it’s beautiful, we can rise again.’” When it opened, Sofie Contemporary Arts’ mission was to give a meaningful venue for new art that is diverse in media, styles and approaches. Sofie adds that all the art shown in the gallery is in some way

connected to California, and often to Calistoga specifically, be it subject- or artist-related. “The tagline we use is ‘Contemporary, California, Calistoga,’” she says. Part of that ideal includes involvement in Arts in April. For Calistoga’s celebratory weekend, known as “Sarafornia,” that kicks off Arts in April each year, Sofie Contemporary Arts hosts the annual “Flower Bomb” exhibit April 6–8, with an opening reception April 5, in which floral designers create arrangements paired with pieces of art. Rather than pair the flowers with classic or well-known paintings as in years past, Sofie is inviting the florists to create arrangements that respond to a larger exhibit, “Artist Spring: The Fire & the Rose Are One,” that features works by 15 Northern California artists which both reflect on last year’s fires and offer a sense of resurgence and rebirth. Artists featured in the show include Karen Lynn Ingalls, whose studio was lost in the Tubbs fire. Ingalls’ new paintings incorporate ashes from her studio in acrylic landscapes that appear to emerge from the ruins. Calistoga’s “Sarafornia” weekend also commemorates the town’s grassroots artistic spirit with the interactive ENGAGE Art Fair at the Napa County Fairgrounds, April 6–8, and the Storytelling Speakeasy at Tank Garage Winery on April 7. “I’ve always been enamored with the idea that when we create something, we can change things,” says Sofie. “Now we can make something and create change that is meaningful even if, and especially because, we recognize the intensity of what we’ve gone through as a community.” For more info on Arts in April, visit artscouncilnapavalley.org.

SURVIVORS Mike Pavone and Mary Gannon Graham play a couple rocked by more than a hurricane.

Trial by Storm

‘By the Water’ disaster tale resonates in North Bay BY HARRY DUKE

O

ne wouldn’t think a play that deals with the wreckage left behind by a natural disaster would be particularly attractive to North Bay residents right now, but Sharyn Rothstein’s By the Water speaks to what our community is going through. While it’s set in 2012 on New York’s Staten Island after Hurricane Sandy, the human and material devastation portrayed might as well be set in Coffey Park today. The show opens with Marty and Mary Murphy (Mike Pavone and Mary Gannon Graham) returning to what’s left of their stormravaged home to begin the process of rebuilding. Word comes that the government may be offering buyouts to the residents, as long as

‘By the Water’ runs Friday–Sunday through April 8 at Spreckels Performing Arts Center, 5409 Snyder Lane, Rohnert Park. Friday–Saturday, 8pm; 2pm matinee, Sunday; Thursday, April 5, performance at 7:30pm. $16– $28. 707.588.3400.

Stage

80 percent of the neighborhood is willing to sell. The Murphy’s son Sal (Mark Bradbury) and their best friends, Philip and Andrea Carter (Clark Miller and Madeleine Ashe), are all for getting out, but Marty is resistant. Actually, Marty is more than resistant, as he recruits his other son, Brian (Jared Wright), to actively campaign against the buyout. He speaks of family and community and history, but there’s another reason for his intransigence. That reason just may do the job that Hurricane Sandy couldn’t and finish off the family. Rothstein’s script is Arthur Milleresque in its examination of a middle-class American family in economic crisis. The shadow of Death of a Salesman hangs over this production, with its floundering patriarch, longsuffering-but-loyal wife, sons whose lives took different paths, a financially supportive friend, family secrets, etc. But Rothstein has effectively updated the story and added a few layers, though some, like a subplot involving Brian’s rekindling of an old flame (Katie Kelley), feel superfluous. Director Carl Jordan has an impressive cast with leads Graham and Pavone terrific as spouses whose relationship is put to the test, not by the disaster, but by what it reveals about the family. Bradbury and Wright do well as the siblings who have their own issues but whose love for each other is clear. Madeleine Ashe delivers the most devastating line in the play—a single sentence that speaks of the desperation and frustration that many in this community now feel: “I’m 60, and I have nothing.” The pain in that line was palpable, and yet it was also cathartic. By the Water is not a story of natural disaster, but of human resilience. It’s our story. Rating (out of 5):

Wes Anderson animated film hits wrong note BY RICHARD VON BUSACK

I

n Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom, runaway kids Sam and Suzy stumble across the corpse of a dog with an arrow in it. Suzy asks, “Was he a good dog?” Sam replies, philosophically, “Who can say?” This New Yorker cartoon caption was a highlight of that movie— heartlessly debonair and tonic among the swoonier parts. But in Anderson’s crafty yet off-putting Isle of Dogs, this kind of coolness is a tonal mistake. In the film, a dog flu plagues 2038 Japan. Kobayashi, the ominous mayor-for-life of Megashima, takes action before the disease jumps to humans. All dogs are sent to a quarantined island. Kobayashi’s ward and “distant nephew,” Atari (Koyu Rankin), flies in a makeshift airplane to rescue his exiled pet Spots, (voiced by Liev Schrieber). It crashes and Atari is marooned. Meanwhile, a pack of bad-off mutts surviving on garbage are catalyzed into action by Chief (Bryan Cranston), a stray dog for life, whose motto is “I bite.” Anderson’s animators work small, trying to capture a nation where people tend to swallow their emotions. But in a culture where the minimal is so important, Anderson crowds in his usual bric-a-brac— whether it’s the step-by-step sushi preparation or the flashcard-like listing of story elements. Anderson, trying to keep Isle of Dogs from getting mired in overdone emotions, errs too far in the opposite direction. The result is something that doesn’t really arouse feelings, no matter how many animated dogs stare us down, sometimes with tears in their eyes. The borrowings from The Lady and the Tramp work, as when the show dog Nutmeg (Scarlett Johansson) tells Chief she’s uncertain about finding a mate: “I wouldn’t want to bring puppies into this world.” Anderson channels the old classic cartoons, staging dogfights that are giant clouds of dust with limbs emerging from it. But he seems torn between honoring what the Japanese call “beauty in sadness”—mono no aware—and parodying it. ‘Isle of Dogs’ is playing at Summerfield Cinemas, 551 Summerfield Road, Santa Rosa. 707.525.8909.

Friends in Folk

Don’t call I’m With Her a girl band BY CHARLIE SWANSON

F

olk trio I’m With Her, who make their Sonoma County debut with a show on April 4 at the Luther Burbank Center for the Arts, are something of a folk supergroup, featuring Sara Watkins, Sarah Jarosz and Aoife O’Donovan. Individually, these songwriters have formed seminal bands like Watkins’ Nickel Creek and O’Donovan’s Crooked Still, and their respective solo outputs have garnered international praise. After crossing paths in the contemporary folk scene for many years, the three first shared a stage together at an impromptu performance in the summer of 2014. “We’d all been friends and

colleagues—that’s sort of a funny word to describe folk musicians— but we’ve known each other for many years,” says O’Donovan, who explains that the trio discovered a spark in their vocal blend at a workshop during the 2014 Telluride Bluegrass Festival in Colorado. “Later that night, we put together a short opening set for the Punch Brothers, and the next day we all said, ‘Wow, that was really special, should we take this one step further?’” They did. For the last several years, I’m With Her, named after an early tour of the same title, have collaboratively shared their sparkling harmonies and strippeddown acoustic styling with audiences throughout the United States and Europe. The band’s recently released debut album, See You Around, is also a collaborative effort. “It was so different from [my solo songwriting] and so rewarding,” says O’Donovan about making the new album. “With Sara and Sarah, when we decided we wanted to write the music all together, it was part of the idea that this was a band. We all have a joint ownership of the material.” Co-produced by Ethan Johns (Ryan Adams, Paul McCartney) and recorded live at Peter Gabriel’s Real World Studios in Bath, England, See You Around comprises 11 originals and a neverbefore-released Gillian Welch song, “Hundred Miles.” Of course, the band pre-dates the #MeToo movement by several years, though O’Donovan says I’m With Her represents camaraderie in a folk scene that can feel like a boys club. “We’re musicians first and foremost. We view ourselves as equals to one another and our male peers,” O’Donovan says. “My goal is that it becomes a non-issue, that we are just a band, the same way a band with three men is a band and nobody’s calling them a dude band.” I’m With Her perform on Wednesday, April 4, at Luther Burbank Center for the Arts, 50 Mark West Springs Road, Santa Rosa. 8pm. $29–$49. 707.546.3600.

After the Fire

Your Home Away from Home

Mill Valley musician spearheads fire-relief album

Voted Best Health Club

When songwriter, producer and longtime Bay Area music industry figure Scott Mickelson was growing up, there was no such thing as DIY in the recording industry. “You either had a record deal, or you didn’t,” says Mickelson, who formed San Francisco alt-rock outfit Fat Opie more than 20 years ago. “I went through all those paces, and I’m at a place in my life where I can pay forward a lot of that experience.”

For the last seven years, Mickelson has done just that while producing albums for younger artists in his Mill Valley home recording studio. “I like to work with artists who are interested in pushing the boundaries of what they can do,” he says. Last October, Mickelson watched in horror as wildfires ravaged the North Bay. “My wife and I have been enjoying Napa and Sonoma since 1987,” Mickelson says. “It hit me hard, the thought that it won’t ever be the same in our lifetime.” Mickelson pushed his own musical limits when he called up 15 artists like David Luning and the Crux to record brand-new songs for a benefit compilation album, After the Fire: Vol. 1. All proceeds from album sales go to fire-relief efforts. The album gets a record-release show featuring Mickelson, the Crux, M. Lockwood Porter, Travis Hayes, Bobby Jo Valentine and others on Thursday, March 29, at HopMonk Tavern, 230 Petaluma Ave., Sebastopol. 8pm (21 and over). $15. 707.829.7300.—Charlie Swanson

ARIES (March 21–April 19) A few years ago, a New Zealander named Bruce Simpson announced plans to build a cruise missile at his home using parts he bought legally from eBay and other online stores. In accordance with current astrological omens, I suggest you initiate a comparable project. For example, you could arrange a do-it-yourself space flight by tying a thousand helium balloons to your lawn chair. APRIL FOOL! I lied. Please don’t try lunatic schemes like the helium balloon space flight. Here’s the truth: Now is a favorable time to initiate big, bold projects, but not foolish, big, bold projects. The point is to be both visionary and practical. TAURUS (April 20–May 20) The Finnish word

kalsarikännit means getting drunk at home alone in your underwear and bingeing on guilty pleasures. It’s a perfect time for you to do just that. The Fates are whispering, “Chill out. Vegetate. Be ambitionless.” APRIL FOOL! I told a half-truth. In fact, now is a perfect time to excuse yourself from trying too hard and doing too much. You can accomplish wonders and marvels by staying home and bingeing on guilty pleasures in your underwear. But there’s no need to get drunk.

GEMINI (May 21–June 20)

Actor Gary Busey is very sure there are no mirrors in heaven. He has other specific ideas about the place, as well. This became a problem when he was filming the movie Quigley, in which his character, Archie, visits heaven. Busey was so enraged at the director’s mistaken rendering of paradise that he got into a fistfight with another actor. I hope you will show an equally feisty fussiness in the coming weeks, Gemini. APRIL FOOL! I lied, sort of. On the one hand, I do hope you’ll be forceful as you insist on expressing your high standards. Don’t back down! But on the other hand, refrain from pummeling anyone who asks you to compromise.

CANCER (June 21–July 22) In the Scots language still spoken in parts of Scotland, eedledoddles are people who can’t summon initiative when it’s crunch time. They are so consumed in trivial or irrelevant concerns that they lose all instinct for being in the right place at the right time. I regret to inform you that you are now at risk of being an eedle-doddle. APRIL FOOL! I lied. In fact, the truth is just the opposite. I have rarely seen you so well primed to respond vigorously and bravely to Big Magic Moments. For the foreseeable future, you are King or Queen of Carpe Diem. LEO (July 23–August 22)

Paul McCartney likes to periodically act like a regular person who’s not a famous musician. He goes grocery shopping without bodyguards. He rides on public transportation and strikes up conversations with random strangers. I think you may need to engage in similar behavior yourself, Leo. You’ve become a bit too enamored with your own beauty and magnificence. You really do need to come down to earth and hang out more with us little people. APRIL FOOL! I lied. The truth is, now is prime time to hone your power and glory; to indulge your urge to shine and dazzle; to be as conspicuously marvelous as you dare to be.

VIRGO (August 23–September 22) The coming days will be an excellent time to concoct an alchemical potion that will heal your oldest wounds. For best results, mix and sip a gallon of potion using the following magic ingredients: absinthe, chocolate syrup, cough medicine, dandelion tea, cobra venom and worm’s blood. APRIL FOOL! I mixed a lie in with a truth. It is a fact that now is a fine time to seek remedies for your ancient wounds. But the potion I recommended is bogus. Go on a quest for the real cure. LIBRA (September 23–October 22) I expect you will soon receive a wealth of exotic and expensive gifts. For example, a benefactor may finance your vacation to a gorgeous sacred site or give you the deed to an enchanted waterfall. I won’t be surprised if you’re blessed with a solid gold bathtub or a year’s supply of luxury cupcakes. It’s even possible that a sugar daddy or sugar momma will fork over $500,000 to rent an auditorium for a party in your honor. APRIL FOOL! I distorted the truth. I do suspect you’ll get more goodies

than usual in the coming weeks, but they’re likely to come in the form of love and appreciation, not flashy material goods. (For best results, don’t just wait around for the goodies to stream in—ask for them!)

SCORPIO (October 23–November 21) There’s

a narrow waterway between Asia and Europe. In the fifth century B.C., Persian King Xerxes had two bridges built across it so he could invade Greece with his army. But a great storm swept through and smashed his handiwork. Xerxes was royally peeved. He ordered his men to whip the uncooperative sea and brand it with hot irons, all the while shouting curses at it, like “You are a turbid and briny river.” I recommend that you do something similar, Scorpio. Has Nature done anything to inconvenience you? Show it who’s the Supreme Boss! APRIL FOOL! I lied. The truth is, now is an excellent time for you to become more attuned and in love with a Higher Power, however you define that. What’s greater than you and bigger than your life and wilder than you can imagine? Refine your practice of the art of surrender.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22–December 21)

Fifteenth-century Italian painter Filippo Lippi was such a lustful womanizer that he sometimes found it tough to focus on making art. At one point, his wealthy and politically powerful patron Cosimo de’ Medici, frustrated by his extracurricular activities, imprisoned him in his studio to ensure he wouldn’t get diverted. Judging from your current astrological omens, Sagittarius, I suspect you need similar constraints. APRIL FOOL! I fibbed a little. I am indeed worried you’ll get so caught up in the pursuit of pleasure that you’ll neglect your duties. But I won’t go so far as to suggest you should be locked up for your own good.

CAPRICORN (December 22–January 19) Now is a favorable time to slap a lawsuit on your mom in an effort to make her pay for the mistakes she made while raising you. You could also post an exposé on social media in which you reveal her shortcomings, or organize a protest rally outside her house with your friends holding signs demanding she apologize for how she messed you up. APRIL FOOL! Everything I just said was ridiculous and false. The truth is, now is a perfect moment to meditate on the gifts and blessings your mother gave you. If she is still alive, express your gratitude to her. If she has passed on, do a ritual to honor and celebrate her. AQUARIUS (January 20–February 18) Aquarian author Alice Walker won a Pulitzer Prize for her novel The Color Purple. She has also published 33 other books and built a large audience. But some of her ideas are not exactly mainstream. For example, she says that one of her favorite authors is David Icke, who asserts that intelligent extraterrestrial reptiles have disguised themselves as humans and taken control of our planet’s governments. I bring this to your attention, because I think it’s time that you, too, reveal the full extent of how crazy you really are. APRIL FOOL! I half-lied. While it’s true that now is a favorable time to show more of your unconventional and eccentric sides, I don’t advise you to go full-on wacko. PISCES (February 19–March 20)

Warning! Danger! You are at risk of contracting a virulent case of cherophobia! And what exactly is cherophobia? It’s a fear of happiness. It’s an inclination to dodge and shun joyful experiences because of the suspicion that they will disappoint you or cause bad luck. Please do something to stop this insidious development. APRIL FOOL! I lied. The truth is that you are currently more receptive to positive emotions and delightful events than you’ve been in a log time. There’s less than a onepercent chance you will fall victim to cherophobia.
