Fingers and Hands Thank you so much for “Drawn from Life” (April 4). When I first saw Brian Fies’ comic on the web, I bawled like a baby. So much emotion was felt by all of us. And to lose all his art supplies in the fire! It’s like cutting off an artist’s hands or blinding him. Can you feature his graphics more? He has a finger on our collective pulse.

Put Up Your Dukes Last Saturday I attended the performance of Amadeus at the Cinnabar Theater in Petaluma, and the next day I picked up a copy of your paper at the Pick-n-Pull in Windsor. I usually find the Bohemian a good read, but the review by Harry Duke in your Stage section (“Roll Over Mozart,” April 4) set my teeth on edge. What is he smoking? This performance was fabulous, and I mean over-the-top fabulous, from the adaptation, casting and acting to the overall direction. I have lived here for 30 years, but somehow have not heard anything about Mr. Duke before, who describes himself as an actor, director, teacher and theater critic. Here is my critical analysis of his work: bring back your previous reviewer, David Templeton, to write this column, and let Mr. Duke stick to whatever he knows best, whatever that is. Meantime, I will be looking for his next personal appearance onstage. He must be a person of great talent. I can hardly wait.

Veganism as Symbolism Foregoing animal products means drawing a line in the sand

(Limit two refillables per person while supplies last)

BY RAY COOPER

Saturday, April 14 | 10 AM to 5 PM Bodega Bay Fisherman’s Festival 2400 Westshore Road, Bodega Bay

I

n the middle of the remote and desolate Scottish Highlands, I dumped out a bag of potato chips because I realized they had put milk powder in them. I was hungry and miffed—after all, these were potatoes. Somebody took something vegan and made it non-vegan. I could’ve just gone ahead and eaten the chips, it wouldn’t have made any difference in the world, right? Not quite. It meant something to me: symbolism. That’s powerful, like the American flag and what it represents to some of us. My son mentioned to me recently that he was considering vegetarian meals for dinner. I suggested that he start with the creation of a complete meal that was entirely vegan. I explained to him that if he devised a meal without animal products, and he could understand the huge threshold crossed by doing so, he could be motivated to do anything he wished. If you understand symbolism, then you can understand what motivates us to act on our beliefs, no matter what the odds are against us. In the case of veganism, there are two effects: the real impacts of our decisions on the world around us, and the impacts we have on ourselves. We strengthen from within because we have acted on our principles based on a respect for others. If you are vegan, you are also a symbol—a symbol that represents those among us who have drawn a line in the sand, an icon of what will become a cultural revolution. You illuminate the possibility of a world without victims, a world where we are judged simply by our own merits—a world where we reap our own fruits, not that of others. Please don’t support any business or mentality that involves exploitation. Complacency is complicity. The world changes the very instant you decide to do something, anything.

Paper THE

EYES ON JUNE 5 Political newcomer Nils Palsson says an uncrowded field could boost his run for Congress.

Feel the Turn

Can Bernie backer Nils Palsson unseat incumbent Mike Thompson? BY TOM GOGOLA

N

orth Bay voters may wake up on Nov. 7 to the news that there are two progressives representing the region in Congress—and one of them is a bona fide Berniecrat.

Nils Palsson is running against Blue Dog Democrat Mike Thompson in California’s 5th congressional district, decrying

the incumbent’s long list of bigmoney contributions from the corporate world as he’s launched a Sanders-friendly campaign— and accepting individual contributions of $27. Palsson, 32, is a working dad who works for Transition US, a environmental nonprofit, and was a delegate for the Vermont senator in the 2016 Democratic primary. The Santa Rosa resident is running as an Independent this

year. It’s his second run for the seat, which Thompson has held since 1999. Palsson ran in 2016 and came in third behind Thompson and Republican Carlos Santamaria in the primary that year, earning 23,639 votes to Thompson’s 124,634. The pro-gun Thompson went on to handily dispatch Santamaria by a margin of 3–1 in the general election. His district includes Santa Rosa, Napa County

and parts of Contra Costa and Solano counties. But there’s no Republican in the race for the 5th this year, and Palsson believes he’s got a real shot at taking down Thompson from the left. Especially since Thompson may actually be—the Zodiac Killer! In a recent campaign e-blast, Palsson flatly declared, “I’m running for congress against the infamous Zodiac Killer.” What? The jibe played off the difficulty in defeating a popular and longstanding incumbent. An editorial that ran in the Sonoma IndexTribune in 2016 noted that “for Thompson to lose, something extraordinary would have to happen, like he were revealed to be the never-captured Zodiac Killer from the 1970s.” Two years later, the Zodiac Killer has still not been caught, and Palsson’s having some fun with it. He goes on to immediately say he’s joking but that the point he’s making is a real one: the 67-year-old Thompson represents a retrograde Democratic Party that’s overly obedient to the demands of the centrist Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. “Let me make it abundantly clear,” Palsson goes on to write. “Mike Thompson is not the Zodiac Killer. But there is a hidden truth that, if revealed, might have roughly the same effect on local voters as if he were to be revealed as the notorious murderer of yore.” The point about Thompson, he says, is that he represents the worst of the worst when it comes to the constellation of his contributor base. “The fact is that Thompson has accepted an alarming number of huge political contributions from lobbyists representing some of the world’s most destructive corporations,” he writes, “including Walmart, Verizon, Comcast, Bank of America, fossil-fuel companies like Tesoro, weapons manufacturers like Lockheed Martin, Raytheon and Honeywell, and a staggering litany of Wall Street entities, big banks, global accounting firms, Big Pharma and health-insurance


‘Thompson has accepted an alarming number of huge political contributions from lobbyists.’ While he’s more aligned with Huffman than Thompson, Palsson doesn’t expect the popular North Coast progressive to hit the hustings with him this year, let alone offer an endorsement. “I haven’t approached Huffman,” Palsson says. “It is politically dangerous for him to support anyone outside the Democratic establishment.” Speaking of, Palsson says that while he’s obviously no fan of the bigotry that defined the Trump campaign, he does see in his election the emergence of a populism that’s keyed in on a moneyball system that’s rigged against We the People. He says he wants to continue a populist push to get the money out of politics—but concedes with a laugh that when it comes to the president, money now appears to be winding up in Donald Trump’s swampy pockets. Still, he says the outsider opportunity that Trump represents is something any candidate might look to for inspiration. “A dark horse could win,” he says. “Enough people could say,

‘eff this’ when it comes to climate change, the threat of nuclear war and other raging existential dilemmas of our time, and give Thompson the boot.” Palsson is intent on pushing a people-first agenda, he says, that’s focused on wage equity and Medicare for all, dealing with the student debt crisis and pushing for higher wages. All very Bernie. He’s also weighing in on gun violence as part of his pitch to voters and says Thompson has come up short on that front, despite his prominence on the issue among Democrats. Thompson was named by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi several years ago to head up a gunviolence committee on behalf of congressional Democrats. Since that time, Thompson has held lots of meetings and dutifully called for expanded background checks, but has opposed any attempt to limit civilian access to highcapacity rifles such as the AR-15. “I haven’t seen visionary leadership from him on any issue,” says Palsson, “including the gun thing.” Palsson adds that he isn’t aligned with some of his Sonoma County “hippie friends” (or with retired Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens), and is not calling for the repeal of the Second Amendment. “I don’t go that far,” he says and notes that the Second Amendment’s original intention was as a bulwark against tyranny. Indeed, he’s wary of ongoing efforts to turn the gun-control debate into a push for legislation to raise the legal age for gun ownership to 21. “I’m not entirely sold on that,” he says, arguing that when youth turn 18, they’re granted full citizenship—and can be given a gun and sent off to war. And he’s got his own war to fight between now and the June 5 primary. Palsson’s hoping to nab some high-level endorsements, and says he needs to ramp up the fundraising. “I feel pretty strong going into the primary,” he says, and if he makes it through and squares off against Thompson in the general, who knows. “People will come out of the woodwork,” he says.

Beginning with summers at his Great Grandparent’s farm in upstate New York, to his founding of The Lucky Dog Ranch, his first dog boarding and pet care facility, to Four Paws Pet Ranch, animals have always been a way of life. A true animal lover at heart, David grew up with dogs, cats, birds, and fish, among other critters. After 20 years in hi-tech David was looking for a way to get “back to nature”, and made the decision to follow his passion and start a “Home away from home” for pets needing a place to stay while their owners are away. His focus now is to provide excellent care for animals staying at both facilities in addition to overseeing Countryside Rescue a nonprofit animal rescue and adoption center located on the Four Paws property. Q:How can I be sure that my pet will get adequate personal attention during the time I am gone? A: All pets boarded at Four Paws Pet Ranch are directly supervised by the in-residence owners and our staff of handlers. Attendants are trained on how to handle the pets and give them daily personal attention on a regular basis. Every pet is given the same consideration and care their owner would provide. Q:Are the dogs exercised? A: Sitting on over 5 acres we are all about your pet getting the exercise they need and enjoying the outdoors.

After destroying her left knee joint from overuse, a friend introduced her to Bikram Yoga. She was amazed at what practicing Bikram Yoga did for her body. Her knee joint slowly became stronger and stopped throbbing with pain. Her body’s alignment, posture, balance, and strength improved incredibly. Her athletic abilities greatly increased in all of the sports she plays. As long as she does Bikram Yoga three or more times per week, her knee stays strong and can take the impact of running, mountain biking, etc… With regular Bikram Yoga practice, Rebecca also noticed that her stress level began to decrease and she was able to sleep better at night. Rebecca has practiced Bikram Yoga for over 15 years now. She practiced through most of her pregnancy with twins. She is now a mom with 3.5 year old boy/girl twins and the local small business owner of Bikram Yoga Santa Rosa. She has seen how much Bikram Yoga has helped not only herself, but everyone who practices around her. She has seen those of all ages, sizes, and abilities benefit greatly from a regular Bikram Yoga practice. She has seen so many students transform their bodies, and reduce aches and pains. Bikram Yoga improves strength, endurance, flexibility, posture, and balance. It also reduces stress, anxiety, and pain. And of course, there’s the weight loss. The average student burns 750 calories in each session. It’s tough, but the benefits are many. You don’t have to be an athlete to participate in Bikram Yoga. People of all ages and fitness levels can benefit greatly from the classes. Each student is encouraged to proceed at his or her own pace. Rebecca went to a 500 hour Bikram Yoga teacher training in April 2010. She absolutely loves teaching Bikram Yoga and motivating students to stay healthy and strong.

Dining OH BOY, PO’ BOYS Parish Cafe’s Rob Lippincott says his goal was to put all his favorite foods from New Orleans under one roof.

Resident Tourist

Born on a Bayou New Orleans comes to Santa Rosa’s Fourth Street at Parish Cafe BY STETT HOLBROOK

I

t started with doughnuts. Beignets, to be more precise.

Rob Lippincott grew up in New Orleans, where he became a Merchant Marine captain and later a charter boat skipper. He developed a love for the powdery doughnuts and all-things New Orleanian before moving to

California. Lippincott worked as a cook at Healdsburg’s late Bistro Ralph and then took a job as a winery mechanic before striking upon the beignet trade. He sold the quintessentially New Orleans’ doughnuts at farmers markets. He did well, but with a growing family, he had his sights on bigger things. “With three kids, selling

beignets at the farmers market wasn’t going to cut it,” he says, “but it was a start.” He and his wife Karla opened the Parish Cafe in Healdsburg, and the menu of po’ boy and muffuletta sandwiches, seafood platters, gumbo and, of course beignets, was a hit. After four years of steady growth, the couple started looking for a second location.

Rob knew the owner of Santa Rosa’s La Bufa Mexican Restaurant and heard he was planning to retire. After a year of negotiations, they struck a deal, and the Lippincotts began renovating the Fourth Street business to give it a distinct New Orleanian flavor, right down to the riverboat painting on the walls and twin Bevolo gas lamps out in front. The restaurant has only been open three weeks, and it’s already one of the most crowded restaurants in downtown Santa Rosa. Maybe too crowded. Rob says the wait for lunch can approach an hour. The restaurant does not take reservations, but he’s trying to cut the wait time in half as the kitchen hones its game. The breakfast and lunch menu is the same as that of the Healdsburg location. “We’re going to stick with what works,” Rob says. “Everything we make is New Orleans. I tried to put all my favorite food under one roof.” That means a menu of Crescent City classics like red beans and rice ($6 cup; $10 bowl), cheese grits and andouille sausage ($14), New Orleans–style egg dishes ($13–$14), fried green tomatoes ($6) and po’ boys and beignets ($5). “Beignets and po’ boys are our mainstays,” says Rob. He says his ideal meal for first-timers would be to start with fried okra ($5) and then move on to a fried shrimp po’ boy ($14 regular, or $18 for a king-size). “That is the quintessential New Orleans flavor,” he says. For the real deal, be sure to ask for your po’ boy “fully dressed”— lots of lettuce, pickles, tomatoes and mayonnaise. Then pair that with a mug of Barq’s root beer, he says. There are two Abita brews on tap, but Rob gets a misty look in his eyes when he thinks of the root beer of his youth. “I can smell it right now.” To finish? “Maybe beignets. No,” he corrects himself, “definitely beignets.” The Parish Cafe, 703 Fourth St., Santa Rosa. 707.843.7804.


Dynamic Trio Bonterra’s biodynamic wine program adheres to a standard BY JAMES KNIGHT

T

o your vocabulary of biodynamic wine— which may include such loosey-goosey phrases as “ultimate organic” and far-out sounding practices like applying “preparation 501” according to the “cosmic calendar”— add these two sexy terms: “compliance” and “auditing.”

Whatever else one may say of biodynamic winemaking, its certified practitioners adhere to a standard you can depend on. “We’re audited every year,” says Bonterra director of organic and biodynamic winemaking Jeff Cichocki. “It’s a definable method of making wine.” Speaking on the phone in between trade calls in the New York City market, which is currently the hotbed of the natural wine movement, Cichocki contrasts the winery’s

approach with the “natural” category: “It’s open to interpretation and opinion, and people’s definitions are all quite different.” Bonterra is a division of Hopland-based Fetzer Vineyards, which was purchased in 2011 by Chilean wine giant Concha y Toro, and has been a leader in organic grape growing for 30 years. Just 5 percent of the Bonterra program is also biodynamic, producing three vineyard-designated wines in tribute to the holistic farming practice’s goal of a closed-loop system. “And that’s a goal, it’s not an absolute,” says Cichocki. “We strive to get there—it’s challenging, as any farming can be.” In winter, for instance, Bonterra rotates up to 3,000 head of sheep through the vineyards to maintain weeds and grass while also depositing fertilizing manure, but harvesting doesn’t have to be jeopardized if strictly following to the cosmic calendar might do so. “You can use common sense and logic.” The Demeter Association, which certifies biodynamic farms and producers in the United States, is flexible, providing two standards for wines that bear their certification mark on the back label, one in combination with the words “biodynamic wine” on the front label, the other with the words “made with certified biodynamic grapes.” Bonterra chooses the latter, as it allows adjustments and additions for greater flexibility in winemaking. Both allow added sulfites, albeit at a lower maximum than conventionally produced wine. Only dusted with oak aroma, as if by a warm hint of springtime oak pollen, Bonterra’s 2015 Roost Blue Heron Vineyard Mendocino County Chardonnay ($40) is a dry, mediumbodied Chard with a lemon merengue tang that keeps richer, butterscotch flavors in check. Their 2013 McNab ($50) is a serious Cabernet-based blend to please any pencil-chewing claret lover, while the 2013 Butler Red Blend ($50) also suggests a big Cab—you might not guess this stygian purple, cassis-like wine is 80 percent Syrah. Revealing a blackberry pastille to pretty up its charred beef note on the second day open, this wine proves dynamic, yet solid.

RETRO RECLINERS Motels like Santa Rosa’s Astro have reinvented themselves by looking back.

Hip Advisor

Local motels get Instagram-friendly upgrades

M

otels are part of California’s car-culture identity. And refurbished, retro-chic motels are becoming part of the North Bay’s identity.

There is a motel renaissance afoot that takes an existing building and dresses it up in Instagram-friendly colors and pampering amenities. Take the Sandman Hotel. Since its doors opened late last year, the Santa

Rosa spot has been popular among younger tourists, who love the funky wallpaper, the pool cabana and the updated reception area. The concrete and stucco structure may strike one at first glance as the classic

and uninspiring ’80s motel; the interiors, however, are anything but. The Sandman embodies the new formula: a familiar format with boutique upgrades. “Before we purchased the hotel in October 2015, the 135room Sandman was known as an affordable, family-friendly option in Santa Rosa,” says general manager Lauren Bodsworth. “We wanted to embrace being a

roadside inn and offer guests a reinvented experience.” The owners, Stephen Yang, with Yang Capital, and Greenfield Partners, a private equity group out of Westport, Conn., kept the Sandman name to capitalize on the positive memories many locals have with the location. “Our goal with the renovation is to really embrace our local community, while still appealing


Resident Tourist railings; Sonoma Tile Makers created the retro orange, mustard and blue tiles in the bathrooms; and concrete artisan Omar Perez of Geyserville Design Parlor cast the concrete vanities. The furniture’s net was cast wider, with pieces arriving from all over the country. “As part of our concept, all the furniture in the motel is for sale,” Canon explains, “so if you fall in love with the Eames chair in your room, you can take it home with you.” Catering to visitors’ Instagram accounts is key, says Cannon. “For a project like ours, where there is no advertising or marketing budget and our PR person works for free food at the Spinster Sisters, Instagram is a dream.” Room rates start at a $160 at the Astro. Canon adds, “We’re looking to attract folks from both the Bay Area and all over the world who want to explore Sonoma County from an affordable, urban oasis in Santa Rosa.” In Napa County, the Calistoga Motor Lodge and Spa is the most recent addition to the local boutique motel offerings. Located in a 1940s building (formerly the Sunburst Calistoga), it offers visitors spa treatments in pristine, blue and white rooms, paper moose heads as decor, and tasteful murals. Described as “an epic ode to the great American road trip of the ’50s, ’60s and ’70s,” the hotel combines retro chic with new amenities. A bed starts at $140 a night. The temptation to take existing businesses and give them a modern hospitality twist is great as Wanda Marie Brester, who comes from a family of motel owners, attests. Recently, she renovated the L&M Motel in Healdsburg. A stylish neon sign was placed on the exterior, vintage photographs added, succulents planted and the rooms got an update.

It had been years since I’d last jumped on a trampoline, but a few minutes of hopping around and that youthful joy quickly came back. And there was so much to jump on, too—an area with basketball hoops and trampolines where you can slam-dunk foam balls to your heart’s content, trampolines on the walls, a crash pad to jump into and a foam pit you could just flop into. I was afraid the half-hour alloted to me would be too little, but by the end I was exhausted—and exhilarated. But I wasn’t done. After all, I may have had my fill of the Rockin’ Jump Trampoline Park, but I still had the Game On Arcade to check out. And after that, a bite to eat at the Victory House Sports Bar & Restaurant. Then maybe get a little bowling in at the 7ten Social Upscale Bowling & Lounge. They’re all a stone’s throw away from each other at the Epicenter in Santa Rosa. The Epicenter has been here for a year and a half, and already is a premier staycation spot. Functioning as a cross between a theme park and a mall, it offers a selection of attractions ranging from arcades to sports games under one roof. On one hand, this means visitors don’t need to pay up front; anyone can enter the center and wander around and, say, watch someone play on the indoor soccer fields. On the other, it means that each attraction costs money. If you want to play some lazer tag and then go bowling, you have to pay separately for each, which can get pricey. Much of the center’s focus is on sports. The bowling lanes and trampoline park are complemented with a fully established gym— members only, unfortunately—and martial arts classes for the kids. Massive TV screens dominate nearly every location, almost all of which feature an ongoing game. I recommend going during the work week. Epicenter raises the prices on weekends by a few dollars to get that extra cash from the larger crowds. For adults seeking entertainment, try heading there in the middle of the day or later at night, to avoid throngs of kids and teenagers who just got out of school. There’s plenty of time to visit. Epicenter opens at 10am and closes at midnight. visitepicenter.com.—Alex T. Randolph

“I did it all myself,” says Brester. “The thought was to make it cozy, comfortable and clean-feeling.” Brester removed all the carpet and replaced it with hardwood. Rates start at $110 at L&M. “With the mid-century design and style that is undeniably authentic to Americana, motels are simply cool,” says Brester. “It just took almost too long for people to realize what is good and real about these old places. A bunch of franchises and corporate non-soul places had to pop up and make us realize that something is missing. I’m thrilled for this trend.”

to travelers who truly want to capture the essence of impromptu travels,” Bodsworth says. To achieve Sandman’s contemporary look, New York–based firm Studio Tack used a mix of natural and handcrafted elements, with commissions from local woodworkers who contributed to the hotel’s slick minimalism. Illustrator Ty Williams, known for his surfer murals, made the logo and added playful touches throughout the property. Those decidedly photogenic features are on display throughout the hotel: a pink neon sign affixed to the pool fence depicts palm trees that look like waving hands, and bold paintings and rounded mirrors with fringe adorn the rooms. The upgrades are everywhere you look. “The design of the pool house and bar channels a ‘tropical meets Californian-bohemian’ flair,” Bodsworth says. “We wanted the Sandman to have character and be able to offer a unique option in Santa Rosa.” Rooms start at $149. At the Astro, the bike-friendly Santa Rosa boutique motel which opened in January (“Ride On,” Jan. 18), the premise is similar: an existing building, the original name, a whole new approach. The initiative here belongs to Lizzie Simon, owner of Santa Rosa’s excellent Spinster Sister restaurant. “We took over the Astro, because we’re deeply invested in the Juilliard Park neighborhood,” says Camille Canon, general manager of Spinster Hospitality. “It’s a unique corner of the world, with an active, creative community. We want to reintegrate the Astro into the neighborhood.” The Astro was built in 1963, and the team’s goal was to bring it back to its long-lost mid-century modern glory. Local artist Todd Barricklow contributed the circuit-board design for the new

Eyes on Prizes

Pulitzer winners yield mixed results BY HARRY DUKE

T

wo Pulitzer Prize– winning dramas have hit North Bay stages. The first is the Raven Players’ production of Neil Simon’s Lost in Yonkers. Simon, whose best-known works are comedies tinged with a little melancholy (The Odd Couple, The Sunshine Boys), won the 1991 Pulitzer for Yonkers, a melancholy family drama tinged with comedy.

With their mother deceased and their father working to pay off a loan shark he owes for covering his late wife’s medical bills, Jay (Ari Vozaitis) and Arty (Logan Warren) find themselves living for 10 months in 1942 with their tyrannical grandmother (Trish DeBaun) and their mentally

The second prize winner is The Time of Your Life. There may be no more “community theater” in our area than the folks at the Cloverdale Performing Arts Center. A glance through the bios in their programs shows a mix of trained veterans, community actors and a fair number of newcomers. This willingness to cast from the community, while commendable, often leads to a variance in quality. The center’s current presentation of William Saroyan’s prize-winning, but severely dated, Time of Your Life is a good example. The show, a sort of preWWII Cheers, has a cast of 16 with various levels of experience playing the denizens of a San Francisco dive bar circa 1939. There’s no real plot, just a variety of human flotsam and jetsam floating through the tavern. In an early scene, one character asks another if a performance they’re watching is any good. The response: “It’s awful, but it’s honest and ambitious.” I can’t improve on Saroyan. ‘Lost in Yonkers’ runs Friday–Sunday through April 15 at the Raven Performing Arts Theater. 115 North St., Healdsburg. Friday–Saturday, 8pm; 2pm matinee, Sunday. $10–$30. 707.433.6335. ‘The Time of Your Life’ runs Friday–Sunday through Apr. 15 at the Cloverdale Performing Arts Center, 209 N.

challenged Aunt Bella (Priscilla Locke) in Yonkers, N.Y. Grandma Kurnitz is cold, demanding and unable to express affection. She does not want the children there, but Bella does. The battle is on, first between Kurnitz and her grandchildren, but ultimately between mother and daughter. Director Joe Gellura has a strong ensemble at work in this piece, with laughs generated by Warren as Simon’s alter ego. The key performance is delivered by Locke, excellent as the daughter simply looking for a little happiness in her life. It’s a sensitive performance that grounds this show and gives it more heart than one expects from a typical Simon play. Rating (out of 5):

1980S ESSENCE Petaluma’s Honey

Toads draw sonic inspiration from bands like the Smiths and New Order.

New Wavers

The Honey Toads find their place in the scene BY CHARLIE SWANSON

W

hile the four members in Petaluma indierock outfit the Honey Toads average out at 22 years old, they go back nearly a decade, having played together since their first year of high school. Musically, the Honey Toads deliver a confidence in their lyrics and tightness in their rhythms that belies their age and has gotten them widespread notice since the Huffington Post debuted their inaugural single, “Send Me Out,” last September. This week, the Honey Toads release their excellent second single, “Plastic Smiles,” with a show at the Phoenix Theater on April 13. Vocalist and electric ukulele

player Nick Cafiero, guitarist Jack Hogan, bassist Joe DeMars and drummer Dominic Bergamini all take cues from vintage proto-punk and new wave sounds of the late ’70s and early ’80s. “A lot of us grew up listening to bands like New Order, the Smiths, the Talking Heads,” says Cafiero. “Those bands had great guitar players, but they also had really prominent bass lines.” With that in mind, DeMars leads the band with complex bass hooks driving the songs, while Hogan’s guitar riffs repeat for atmospheric effect and Cafiero’s vocals echo David Byrne’s yelping urgency and Morrissey’s wistful cadence simultaneously. Not ones to be mired in nostalgia, the Honey Toads mix it up in the form of Cafiero’s electric ukulele, a solid-body prototype that he plays like a rhythm guitar. “I sort of fell in love with the ukulele at a pretty early age,” says Cafiero. He even convinced his high school jazz band to let him play the instrument. “It was a bit unorthodox,” Cafiero says, “but I was able to prove you can do a lot with it.” This prototype ukulele, which Cafiero received from Petaluma’s Kala Brand Music Company where he works, produces clean tones that resemble an electric jazz guitar and adds a rhythmic background to Hogan’s arpeggio guitar lines. The overall effect gives plenty of depth to the band, and the new single is their strongest work yet, as “Plastic Smiles” boasts both compelling, danceable hooks and relatable lyrics about trying to fit in. “The song is a bit about feeling young and ignored, and that reaction to it,” Cafiero says. Now one of the hottest bands in their scene, the Honey Toads are happy to unveil “Plastic Smiles” and pass out free T-shirts this week in their hometown. “We like to put on a show,” Cafiero says. “There will be a lot of fun, banter and dancing.” The Honey Toads play on Friday, April 13, at the Phoenix Theater, 201 Washington St., Petaluma. 8pm. $8. 707.762.3565.

ARIES (March 21–April 19) Aries statesman Thomas Jefferson was the third President of the United States. He wrote one of history’s most famous documents, the Declaration of Independence. He was an architect, violinist, inventor and linguist who spoke numerous languages, as well as a philosopher who was knowledgeable about mathematics, surveying, and horticulture. But his most laudable success came in 1789, when he procured the French recipe for macaroni and cheese while living in France, and thereafter introduced the dish into American cuisine. JUST KIDDING! I’m making this little joke in the hope that it will encourage you to keep people focused on your most important qualities and not get distracted by less essential parts of you.

In the early 1990s, Australian electrical engineer John O’Sullivan toiled on a research project with a team of radio astronomers. Their goal was to find exploding mini-black holes in the distant voids of outer space. The quest failed. But in the process of doing their experiments, they developed technology that became a key component now used in Wi-Fi. Your digital devices work so well in part because his frustrating misadventure led to a happy accident. According to my reading of your astrological omens, Taurus, we may soon be able to make a comparable conclusion about events in your life.

GEMINI (May 21–June 20) In the fictional world created by DC Comics, the superhero Superman has a secret identity as a modest journalist named Clark Kent. Or is it the other way around? Does the modest journalist Clark Kent have a secret identity as the superhero Superman? Only a few people realize the two of them are the same. I suspect there is an equally small number of allies who know who you really are beneath your “disguises,” Gemini. But upcoming astrological omens suggest that could change. Are you ready to reveal more about your true selves? Would you consider expanding the circle that is allowed to see and appreciate your full range and depth? CANCER (June 21–July 22) Playwright Tennessee Williams once spent an evening trying to coax a depressed friend out of his depression. It inspired him to write a poem that began like this: “I want to infect you with the tremendous excitement of living, because I believe that you have the strength to bear it.” Now I address you with the same message, Cancerian. Judging from the astrological omens, I’m convinced you currently have more strength than ever before to bear the tremendous excitement of living. I hope this news will encourage you to potentize your ability to welcome and embrace the interesting puzzles that will come your way in the weeks ahead. LEO (July 23–August 22) Are you finished dealing with spacious places and vast vistas and expansive longings? I hope not. I hope you will continue to explore big bold blooming schemes and wild free booming dreams until at least April 25. In my astrological opinion, you have a sacred duty to keep outstripping your previous efforts. You have a mandate to go further, deeper, and braver as you break out of shrunken expectations and push beyond comfortable limitations. The unknown is still more inviting and fertile than you can imagine. VIRGO (August 23–September 22) Between Dec. 5 and 9, 1952, London was beset with heavy fog blended with thick smog. Visibility was low. Traffic slowed and events were postponed. In a few places, people couldn’t see their own feet. According to some reports, blind people, who had a facility for moving around without the aid of sight, assisted pedestrians in making their way through the streets. I suspect that a metaphorically comparable phenomenon may soon arise in your sphere, Virgo. Qualities that might customarily be regarded as liabilities could at least temporarily become assets. LIBRA (September 23–October 22) Your allies are

always important, but in the coming weeks they will be even more so. I suspect they will be your salvation, your deliverance and your treasure. So why not treat them like angels or celebrities or celebrity angels? Buy them ice cream and concert tickets and fun surprises.

BY ROB BREZSNY

Tell them secrets about their beauty that no one has ever expressed before. Listen to them in ways that will awaken their dormant potentials. I bet that what you receive in return will inspire you to be a better ally to yourself.

SCORPIO (October 23–November 21)

In the coming weeks, I suspect you will be able to find what you need in places that are seemingly devoid of what you need. You can locate the possible in the midst of what’s apparently impossible. I further surmise that you will summon a rebellious resourcefulness akin to that of Scorpio writer Albert Camus, who said, “In the midst of hate, I found there was, within me, an invincible love. In the midst of tears, I found there was, within me, an invincible smile. In the midst of chaos, I found there was, within me, an invincible calm. No matter how hard the world pushes against me, within me, there’s something stronger—something better, pushing right back.”

SAGITTARIUS (November 22–December 21)

In 1936, Herbert C. Brown graduated from the University of Chicago with a bachelor’s degree in science. His girlfriend, Sarah Baylen, rewarded him with the gift of a two-dollar book about the elements boron and silicon. Both he and she were quite poor; she couldn’t afford a more expensive gift. Brown didn’t read the book for a while, but once he did, he decided to make its subject the core of his own research project. Many years later, he won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his discoveries about the role of boron in organic chemistry. And it all began with that two-dollar book. I bring this story to your attention, Sagittarius, because I foresee you, too, stumbling upon a modest beginning that eventually yields breakthrough results.

CAPRICORN (December 22–January 19) In 20 B.C., Rome’s most famous poet was Quintus Horatius Flaccus, known to us today as Horace. He prided himself on his meticulous craftsmanship, and advised other writers to be equally scrupulous. Once you compose a poem, he declared, you should put it aside for nine years before deciding whether to publish it. That’s the best way to get proper perspective on its worth. Personally, I think that’s too demanding, although I appreciate the power that can come from marshaling so much conscientiousness. And that brings me to a meditation on your current state, Capricorn. From what I can tell, you may be at risk of being too risk-averse; you could be on the verge of waiting too long and being too cautious. Please consider naming a not-too-distant release date. AQUARIUS (January 20–February 18) Luckily, you have an inventive mind and an aptitude for experimentation. These will be key assets as you dream up creative ways to do the hard work ahead of you. Your labors may not come naturally, but I bet you’ll be surprised at how engaging they’ll become and how useful the rewards will be. Here’s a tip on how to ensure you will cultivate the best possible attitude: assume that you now have the power to change stale patterns that have previously been resistant to change. PISCES (February 19–March 20)

May I suggest that you get a lesson in holy gluttony from a Taurus? Or perhaps pick up some pointers in enlightened self-interest from a Scorpio? New potential resources are available, but you haven’t reeled them in with sufficient alacrity. Why? Why oh why oh why?! Maybe you should ask yourself whether you’re asking enough. Maybe you should give yourself permission to beam with majestic self-confidence. Picture this: Your posture is regal, your voice is authoritative, your sovereignty is radiant. You have identified precisely what it is you need and want, and you have formulated a pragmatic plan to get it.
