Bigger Problems The immediate problems of homelessness, violence, mental illness, drug addiction, dirty syringes in public areas, etc., that we are facing here today in Santa Cruz are local manifestations of a larger and more serious problem. As the Global Ruling Elite and their criminal psychopathic minions on Wall Street, the Too Big To Fail Banks and in government continue to rob us and plunder the economy, you will see more families in the middle class descend into poverty and despair. We should look carefully at what is going on in Cyprus today, where the bankers are stealing depositorsâ€™ savings to pay off the bankerâ€™s â€œdebt.â€? You want to address drug addiction in Santa Cruz? How about taking your money out of the banks who launder drug money for the drug cartels. Keep this in mind as we work on local problems. We should fully understand the context of our immediate local problems
and the ultimate source of the problems we are facing today. DREW LEWIS Santa Cruz
Radical Green It should be more than obvious to anyone by now that Santa Cruz has gotten overcrowded. By generally recognized econometrics, we have overshot the environmental â€œcarrying capacityâ€? of this area by at least 3 fold. That is, there are 3 times as many people here than should be. I donâ€™t know where the money came from to construct a new million dollar basketball court complex near downtown, but those funds should have been spent constructing a new city environmental center complete with showers (for bike commuters), free computer terminals, free printing and a healthy level of research and library materials to help transit our city into an ecologically sustainable green community for the 21st century.
The city of Santa Cruz should be hiring local global climate change activists, not wasting funds to hire more police officers, who are turning our wonderful community into a lawless, fascist police state. A city environmental center can help coordinate a local hemp industry to develop and sell textiles, pull together the knowledge, resources and local workforce to plant and maintain thousands of fruit and nut trees all throughout the city as future free food for the community, and work to mitigate the threat that global climate change will have upon the people, wildlife and vegetation that is unique to our bio-region. The city of Santa Cruz needs to go â€˜big timeâ€™ REAL GREEN. That means banning all gas-guzzling SUVs, removing the illegal police state spy and surveillance control grid that has been built up around us since 9/11, requiring all natural food stores to stop selling and promoting meat, getting the city to wean itself off the corporate energy and food grid by requiring home and businesses to install rooftop solar PV panels and becoming food self-sufficient (community gardens, local food industries and community plant and tree food sowers and harvesters), and, finally, introducing non-polluting electric vehicles to replace all internal combustion engines within the city limits. I urge all Santa Cruz residents to work together now to help build a green, sustainable, ecologically independent community separate from the failing, dysfunctional, overconsumptive, Earththreatening lifestyle and value-system of our imploding and collapsing society. So, get out of your cars folks, and learn to bicycle. Plant gardens, organize to plant trees everywhere, install solar and wind, get rid of your gas-guzzling trucks and SUVs and learn to power down to a vegan/ vegetarian diet. And do not have more than one child per family. Itâ€™s time for a New World! MAY BOEVE Center for Integral Living Santa Cruz

Wellness SO FUN IT HURTS Everyone claims to have a hangover cure, but do any really work?
The Truth About Hangovers Hereâ€™s the real reason the day after hurtsâ€”and what you can do BY MARIA GRUSAUSKAS
ne drink to remember, another to forget. And the next thing you know, youâ€™re waking up on a floor somewhere at 2pm, with a crinkled Taco Bell wrapper in your pocket and no recollection of how it or you got there. Okay, maybe itâ€™s not that bad. Maybe you only drink in a civilized mannerâ€”a glass of wine at dinner, a Bloody Mary on the weekend. But the fact of the matter is: if you indulge in alcohol, chances are good that youâ€™ve experienced a hangover. But how many people know exactly what is going on in our bodies during the long and painful hours of a hangover (or, â€œveisalgiaâ€? if you want the medical name for it)?
Alcohol affects every single system in our bodiesâ€”including repressing our immune systemsâ€”and itâ€™s a toxin, so no wonder it makes us feel terrible when we consume a lot of it. But the hangover actually begins with the first drinks, and that strange phenomenon so inelegantly termed â€œbreaking the seal,â€? or, frequent trips to the bathroom after urinating for the first time while drinking. The increased urge to urinate is a result of the pituitary glandâ€™s reaction to alcohol: in an effort to rid the body of the intruding toxin, it blocks the creation of vasopressin, the hormone responsible for our bodyâ€™s retention of water. The result is that we pee a lot. And we lose a lot more liquid than we put in:
In an article for howstuffworks.com, Lacy Perry reports that studies show that drinking 250 milliliters of an alcoholic beverage causes the body to expel up to 1,000 milliliters of waterâ€”four times as much. The diuretic effect means your kidneys start sending water straight to your bladder, and though the process lessens as the alcohol in our bloodstream decreases, the dehydrating aftereffects can be irreversibleâ€”and a little gruesome. One of them is that your brain actually shrinks, as the rest of the body leeches water from it. This shriveling gray matter pulls on the membranes that connect the brain to the skull,
which is what causes the all-toocommon hangover headache and sensitivity to light and sound. But what about the nausea, weakness and loss of the general sense of wellbeing on the morning after too many cocktails? According to to Robin Wasserman of Livestrong.com, having too much fun may actually be the cause for feeling blue the next day, because like many drugs, alcohol causes an initial spike in serotoninâ€”and feelings of euphoriaâ€”only to be followed by serotonin levels that are lower than normal. Other hangover symptoms can also be traced back to the dehydration resulting in your bodyâ€™s natural response to get rid of the poison. Fatigue and nausea are caused by a loss of salts and electrolytes like potassium and magnesium due to frequent urination, explains Perry. The alcohol also breaks down the liverâ€™s supply of glycogen, converting it to glucose, which is then flushed out, explaining the lack of coordination and low energy. While the tips for preventing hangovers run the gamut from Excedrin Migraine before bed, to burned toast and a greasy breakfast in the morning, unfortunately, none of these remedies actually reverses the damage done. Also keep in mind that alcoholic drinks with higher concentrations of congeners, or byproducts of fermentation, may hit you harder the next day. Common culprits include red wine, dark liquors, whiskey, tequila and brandy. The best way to curtail the agony of the day after, aside from not drinking at all, is probably to simply drink waterâ€” the more, the betterâ€”between every alcoholic beverage. â€œIt helps with the effects of dehydration,â€? says Gary J. Murray, Ph.D., acting director of the Division of Metabolism and Health Effects at the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism. â€œAnd, if youâ€™re holding a bottled water, it still gives you something to do with your hands.â€? 0

UNKINDEST CUTS Dotti McKnight is one of some 80 Dominican employees expected to be laid off in May.
Do Not Resuscitate Is Dominicanâ€™s Restorative Care Unit taking the fall for its parent companyâ€™s corporate failings? BY JACOB PIERCE
hen Dotti McKnight left her job at the Shadowbrook restaurant in Capitola, she thought a commissary job at Dominican Hospital would be enough to support her and her husband. That was 2003. Last month, McKnight received a notice warning her she will probably be laid off in May because of restructuring and job eliminations. â€œIâ€™m distressed,â€? McKnight says. â€œMy whole life is just shaken up now. I donâ€™t know whatâ€™s going to happen to me. Iâ€™m 60 years old. Over the past 28 years, these are the only two jobs Iâ€™ve had, so I donâ€™t know what Iâ€™m going to do. Iâ€™m really upset and worried about this.â€? Many of the approximately 80 job
eliminations are happening because of the closure of the Restorative Care Unit on Frederick Street. Such rehab facilities care for people recovering from strokes, traumas and serious illnesses. The hospital is also closing a physical therapy program and a prenatal clinic. Dominican will refer patients to other Monterey Bay facilities, including Dominicanâ€™s separate Acute Rehabilitation Center, which opened this past March. Dominican Hospital administrators say they closed the rehab campus to comply with Californiaâ€™s seismic regulations, which lawmakers strengthened after the 1996 Northridge earthquake. Some have said Dominican has been trying to close the facility for years to
save money. Dominican Hospital makes a decent amount of cash for its parent company Dignity Healthâ€”or did a couple years ago anyway, with 2011 net income margins of 13 percent. Thatâ€™s more than double that of other Dignity Health hospitals in California, and 4 percent higher than the average net income of hospitals. In 2012, Dignity Health profits dropped 82 percent from the previous year. Itâ€™s unclear how hard Dominican was hit with losses. But the drop-off raises questions that Dominican might be covering for Dignity Healthâ€™s losses elsewhere in the companyâ€”not that anyone at Dominican is willing to discuss their budgets.
Dignity Health spokesperson Mike Lee says the hospital is doing what it can. â€œDominican is making changes necessary to succeed in a reformed healthcare environment so we can continue to provide services needed in the community,â€? Lee wrote in a brief statement emailed to the Weekly. Sean Whirley works for the SEIU, which represents McKnight, and says the hospital shouldnâ€™t be cutting positions right now. â€œItâ€™s hard to understand economic hardship being the basis for these layoffs given their profit margins,â€? says Whirley, who works in Los Angeles. One nurse, who wished to remain anonymous, says it will be almost impossible finding such a good nursing job again in Santa Cruz County, and Dominican Hospital hasnâ€™t been much help. â€œThey could be a little more accommodating, helping to ease the blow and help us find work after Dominican,â€? he said. â€œItâ€™s not like the factory closed, and theyâ€™re not making cars anymore. They could find jobs for us.â€?â€™ According to the 60-day notice McKnight received, her layoff could go into effect in late May. She says both the SEIU and Dominican have left her in the dark. â€œI havenâ€™t heard a word form human resources or the union,â€? McKnight says. â€œIâ€™ve asked questions, and they keep referring me to each other.â€? McKnight says she doesnâ€™t know what she will do if she is laid off next month. She doesnâ€™t know how she will support herself and her husband, who works part-time and doesnâ€™t have any benefits. She doesnâ€™t think sheâ€™ll be able to afford healthcare for herself or her husband, whoâ€™s 58 years old, until they each reach 65 and qualify for Medicare. â€œIâ€™m very, very worried,â€? she says. â€œItâ€™s my livelihood, Iâ€™ve always had a job. Stability is very important to me. Iâ€™ve never been on welfare. Iâ€™ve never been on unemployment. Iâ€™ve always worked.â€? 0

BY AARON CARNES
n the mid-2000s, Blackbird Raum unexpectedly took Santa Cruz by storm. Rising up out of a community of squatters and travelers in 2004, they were set up like a folk-jug ensemble, but played with the intensity and political leanings of an anarchist crust punk band. The idea that they could form a band, and even make money busking with their mish-mash of acoustic instrumentsâ€”banjo, mandolin, accordion, washtub bass, and washboardâ€”came from an Oregon group they met called the Sour Mash Hug Band, who were also part of the squatting scene. Several U.S. tours and one European campaign later, they have released their fourth album, False Weavers. After a long tour, they will return home with a show at the Catalyst on Sunday, May 5. I asked three of the band membersâ€”Zack (accordion), Caspian (banjo) and Mars (mandolin)â€”to tell me the story of Blackbird Raum in their own words.
The Early Years MARS: I grew up in a strict religious home in New York. I wasnâ€™t allowed to listen to or play music. I decided I was an anarchist at 16, and ran away from home, only to get arrested at a protest in Washington, D.C., in September 2002. I got sent home and tried to make it through my last year of high school, but I just felt like I was wasting my life. I dropped out and started hitchhiking and riding freight trains around the country, and wound up in Santa Cruz in April 2003. I think that dropping out was one of the best and most influential decisions of my life. I met Caspian when I was 17. We became close friends immediately, started squatting and playing music. CASPIAN: I felt incredibly alienated from the world growing up. My family has always been loving and supportive, though it took them a while to â€œget my deal.â€? School, on the other hand, was intolerable. Once I dropped out and entered â€œthe lifestyle,â€? I had an identity to validate my rage at the institutions and
values that controlled my life as a youth. Living in a tree and eating roadkill isnâ€™t something thatâ€™s liable to make you feel more connected to the cultural mainstream. ZACK: I had been squatting in the woods in a really simple structure before. I spent the summer of 2004 travelling around the country trying to figure out how to work an accordion that had been given to me. MARS: Me and Caspian would hang out in a communal squatted space we had, sometimes for hours, when it was raining. Our fingers were cold as hell, but we would pick up the two guitars that were there, and write weird interlocking parts. One time while we were doing that, the roof came off a section of our squat, and we had to stop playing to fix it. We stood on counters and tables and got soaking wet. It was a good time. In 2004, we met the Sour Mash Hug Band and got super excited about the idea of being able to include music in our lives in a more serious way. Caspian toured with them and gathered 12 a bunch of skills and ideas.

From squatters to one of Santa Cruzâ€™s most popular bands, the twisted history of Blackbird Raumâ€” in their own words

BAND ON THE RUNNING BOARD Blackbird Raum swerves to avoid mainstream culture. CASPIAN: With Sour Mash, we were riding trains around and busking at farmerâ€™s markets from Oakland to New Orleans, playing mostly traditional songs. I needed a band that could busk like Sour Mash did, but I wanted to sing about my life squatting, the books I was reading, my weird ideas, politics. I wanted to incorporate themes from underground metal and punk music. ZACK: I made it back to Santa Cruz about the same time Caspian got back from touring as the mandolineer of the Sour Mash Hug Band. We wrote a handful of songs while trying to learn our instruments. Caspian taught me the accordion by explaining things heâ€™d seen other people do. We built a washtub bass and taught one punk after the other how to play it, dragging them downtown with us to busk or play random parties. MARS: I was bummed I wasnâ€™t in the band at the time. But I was pregnant and moved to New York to be with my family and have my daughter. ZACK: It was only a matter of weeks before we played out first show, which was at an anarchist cafe in town. We started busking only after
we played at least two shows, and it started as a pretty serious failure. Our first dollar made was from a man on a date, who paid us to leave. The first tour we did was to Bellingham, Wash., in summer 2005. We found out a little too late that the tour vehicle was only going up there, and not coming back. Caspian and I had to ride trains and hitchhike back to Santa Cruz with all our gear. MARS: In December 2005, Raum went on hiatus, and I moved back to Santa Cruz. Caspian wanted to start BBR again. While in New York, I learned the accordion and the saw. Caspian said, â€œWanna be in Raum? I heard you play the saw. What are you gonna do during the fast songs?â€? I said, â€œI guess Iâ€™ll learn the mandolin.â€? And that was that.
Everyoneâ€™s a Hippie CASPIAN: I think this band wouldnâ€™t have happened in another town besides Santa Cruz. The cultural brew here was just different than any other place. ZACK: There is a way in Santa Cruz in which everyone is a hippie.

The yuppies are hippie-yuppies, the bros are hippie-bros, so the punks are hippie-punks, and in the early days of Blackbird Raum, that is who heard us, because no one else probably could have. The music was too folky to be punk, but too angry and abrasive to fit in with a more new-age scene. Camper Van Beethoven were one of the first American folk-punk bands, and they also were based in Santa Cruz. Maybe itâ€™s in the water. CASPIAN: It was just a natural extension of folk music, crust punk, radical environmentalism, DIY arts and crafts and a host of other interests. The idea that you could take music regarded as quaintâ€”not just by its audience, but also by those making itâ€”and then transform it into some grand artistic and political statement makes me laugh now. I mean, we have a washtub bass, for crissakes! A big part of being in an acoustic band was the stringent noise laws in Santa Cruz. It was a big part of why we played so many shows. We were the only band that wouldnâ€™t get shut down. ZACK: We played acoustic because we didnâ€™t have electricity, we didnâ€™t have vehicles to haul huge amps and drumsets around, we couldnâ€™t afford electric instruments and we needed to busk to make ends meet. Itâ€™s hard to busk with an electric guitar. Some of our earlier songs definitely were inspired by our respective conditions. Living in the woods and spending a lot of time there enhances oneâ€™s feelings of awe for the beauty of the wild MARS: Being part of something different than mainstream culture was really inspiring to me. I think a lot of people feel like something is wrong. The planet is being destroyed for profit. People spend so much of their lives in front of televisions. Abuse in relationships is rampant. Bombs drop in other countries. And everyone is going about business as usual. I want to talk openly about these issues. I try to bring that into our music.
We Yelled Even More CASPIAN: Our first record, Purse Seine, was recorded for free by a goth dude in a living room in
Sacramento. We werenâ€™t happy with it, but we needed something to sell if we wanted to fund better recordings. I remember at the time wishing we had guidance, but nobody from the established â€œmusical undergroundâ€? wanted to touch us, even though there were a lot of folks at our shows. We knew activists and criminals not label dudes! ZACK: The next album we recorded after Purse Seine was Swidden. It was easier, because we knew what we were doing as musicians. The recording process was very different because we actually recorded in a real studio and paid the engineer. CASPIAN: Swidden was recorded by an older folkie dude in a WWII-ra bunker in Port Townsend, Wash. It is also where we recorded Under the Startling Host. Both of those records were collections of songs we were playing live. We were used to yelling our heads off, partly because we thought we were punk, and partly because we wanted to be heard busking and at house shows. When we got in the studio we yelled even more than we did live, because we didnâ€™t have to play our instruments at the same time. MARS: We really wanted a more live sound on our early records. While False Weavers still has those elements, it also includes some material that doesnâ€™t quite fit our usual sound. ZACK: We brought in other singers, tried a ton of new instruments and used a bunch of the wacky analog effects in the studio. The second way in which itâ€™s different [than the prior albums] is that we experimented more with different song styles. Chumbawamba was a big influence. Before â€œTubthumping,â€? they had been an anarcho-punk band, but they mixed it with electronic sounds and folk instruments, and itâ€™s all cut and pasted together with this mixed chaotic effect, which weâ€™ve emulated outright. CASPIAN: Ironically, the music sounds more â€œliveâ€? to me than our old records because it was conceived for the environment in which it took place. My personal goal was to stay true to the sounds and ideas that weâ€™d addressed in the past, while moving away from

CASPIAN: Weâ€™ve played a lot of shows in forests, parking lots, etc. Weâ€™d break into abandoned buildings for a night and play a show by candlelight. We played a squatted pier in St. Louis in a lightning storm. We still do this stuff occasionally, but itâ€™s rarer now. I prioritize people seeing us, and obscure locations make that difficult. We play bigger venues, but every tour we end up playing in someoneâ€™s living room, and people are crowd surfing and walking on the ceiling. We donâ€™t busk as much anymore, mostly because it doesnâ€™t pay as well as it used to. ZACK: Our audience has an interestingly large range. I suppose playing acoustic instruments account for this. Punks show up with their parents or their kids, and everybody has a good time. Some people like us because of the folk melodies and banjo twang, some appreciate the obvious punk influences, and some are simply â€œpolitical bedfellows.â€? People relate to a displeasure, a feeling of having been cheated by life or by society, and, often enough, a desire to strike back. MARS: I care deeply about the Earth, and I have a lot of compassion for people and other creatures that experience war, repression, prison, poverty, etc. I canâ€™t imagine expressing myself through music, action, or otherwise without that part of myself being included. From my family being homeless, to having friends go to prison, these problems have come real close to home. When I was arrested at a protest when I was 16, I witnessed some really intense police brutality. The cops had us surrounded, a hundred or so of us. One cop started beating this guy who was in front of me. The guy fell into my arms. We couldnâ€™t move because we were crowded and surrounded entirely. I held this guy that I didnâ€™t know, while he was beat by this cop with a baton. I refuse to be a person who can see that, and then turn a blind eye. Of course those themes are in my music. CASPIAN: Our world is dominated by pragmatic arguments.
People that care are laughed at. Most music, even underground music, doesnâ€™t address these issues. My goal has been to create validation and community for those who feel sorrow for the destruction of the world, to tell people â€œI see what you see.â€? ZACK: I am still living off the grid, although now I live in a nice neighborhood, totally legally. No water or electricity, no rent. I used to steal to survive, but I got caught in a pretty serious way, and since then have been buying or scavenging everything I need. I donâ€™t have a job, but just gig around and make money when I must. CASPIAN: I still dumpster dive, and I still spend a lot of time in the wilderness, but when I go to bars now I just buy a beer instead of drinking the bottom of someoneâ€™s abandoned one. Not all of us squat anymore, but still hang out at squats and play at a lot of squats when weâ€™re touring. MARS: Becoming a parent has changed things. Iâ€™m still a part of DIY punk subculture. Doing what I can to be an awesome parent and model for my daughter is a big part of my life. I no longer squat. I think it makes sense that I wouldnâ€™t be squatting forever, because that wasnâ€™t the most important thing about our community. It was a strategy for making space for what we wanted to build. CASPIAN: I would say weâ€™re odd even for a folk-punk band, which is already too odd for a lot of people. A lot of songs tend to be about riding bikes and falling in love. Weâ€™re more likely to write songs about pagans being burned at the stake. We were actually making money doing this obscure music because we did it out in the open, where everyone could get our CDs. But then there is the fact that weâ€™re playing original music, and screen-printing shirts and patches. We didnâ€™t fit in with the buskers or the scene bands, just like we were too punk for the folk crowd and vice-versa. But ultimately if you keep playing the hell out of your music, and thinking critically about it, it will get good, and when it is good people will pay attention.

TODAY WE ARE A FESTIVAL The Santa Cruz Jewish Film Festival celebrates its 13th year with films like â€˜Esther and Me,â€™ Lisa Geduldigâ€™s documentary about about comdienne Esther Weintraub (center).
Coming of Age The Santa Cruz Jewish Film Festival turns 13 BY GEORGIA PERRY
azel tov, yâ€™all! This year marks the 13th anniversary of the Santa Cruz Jewish Film Festival, and everyone is invited to the party. But instead of a pubescent voice squeaking out the Torah, audiences are being treated to top quality movies and documentaries presented at a variety of venues around town. What was born out of a single film screened at Temple Beth El has expanded to a full-fledged cinematic festival showcasing the myriad sides of Jewish culture. The organizers of the event see it as a professional affair offering something for the entire community. â€œWe really try and make a balanced program that has a little bit of everything,â€? says festival committee member Eve Eden. Committee members screened around 100 films before selecting 15 for this yearâ€™s festival. The subject matter ranges from Palestinian/ Israeli peace documentaries to films dealing with LGBT issues and a French homage to Woody Allen that Eden says isnâ€™t especially Jewish aside from the fact that the characters are â€œneurotic.â€? (â€œBut,â€? she adds, â€œeverybodyâ€™s neurotic.â€?) Maurice Peel, publicity manager for the Del Mar, says his experience with presenting the festival this year was overwhelmingly positive and that the audience seems to be growing each year. Other venues include Louden Nelson Center and the Museum of Art and History.
â€œWe see the festival as a valuable partner in our efforts to ignite unexpected connections in Santa Cruz county through arts and culture,â€? says MAH director Nina Simon. This weekend, the festival will screen five films at Temple Beth El, including Broadway Musicals: A Jewish Legacy, a documentary about the prevalent and often surprising role of Jewish composers in contemporary musicals. â€œOf course we know about Fiddler on the Roof, but there are a lot of other ones,â€? says Eden. â€œAnd most people wouldnâ€™t know that Irving Berlin wrote the song â€˜White Christmas.â€™â€? The event will also feature Esther and Me, a documentary about lesbian comedienne Lisa Geduldigâ€™s unlikely friendship with octogenarian former stand-up comedienne Esther Weintraub; Gedudig will appear at a Q&A. To celebrate its 13th year, the festival committee will put on a â€œBar-Bat Mitzvahâ€? gala at Temple Beth El with gourmet food, wine pouring by Soif, and live jazz and klezmer music by musicians Jeff Brody and Bill Ruskin. â€œItâ€™s a step up,â€? says Eden. â€œIt used to be more of us just getting stuff from Costco and bringing it. But not this year.â€? 4BOUB$SV[+FXJTI'JMN'FTUJWBM April 20-21, Temple Beth El, Aptos

TEGAN & SARA
In an interview last year,Tegan of Tegan & Sara told me that the minute their friends and associates heard the song â€œCloser,â€?they told the sisterly Canadian duo that they needed to get it out to the ears of the public at large, ASAP.Though musicians donâ€™t generally like to be told what they should do with their music or when, they took this particular piece of advice, and put out â€œCloserâ€?as a single several months before the release of their album Heartthrob. Smart move. Itâ€™s the catchiest, most anthemic thing theyâ€™ve ever done, and when I saw them a week after it came out, it was already the song that got the biggest cheers as the opening notes played. It also just happened to push their new album to the top of the Billboard charts for the first time ever. Catalyst; $35/$40; 8pm. (Steve Palopoli)
If you know 2 Tone, you probably know the Selecter. In the late 1970s in England, musicians began fusing elements of ska, punk rock and reggae together, which created 2 Tone, the â€œsecond waveâ€? of ska. The Selecter was set apart from other groups of that movement by Neol Daviesâ€™ songs, Desmond Brownâ€™s energetic Hammond organ rhythms and the inclusion of a female lead vocalist, Paulina Black. The lineup is racially diverse and the music is politically charged, promoting a positive view on multicultural inclusiveness through strong melodies and danceable beats. Moeâ€™s Alley; $20 adv/$25 door; 9pm. (Melanie Ware)
San Joseâ€™s the Bang is a modern take on the classic girl group that harkens back to the glory days of the Ronettes and Martha and the Vandellas. Angeline King and Rachel Mae Havens are the â€œgirlâ€? contingent, recreating the look and the moves of the â€˜60s and early â€˜70s girl-pop greats. Guitarists Derek See and Alison Green, meanwhile, power the â€œgroupâ€? part of the equation, which also includes bassist Jafar King and drummer Rich Gutierrez. Together, they lift the Bang far above what â€œtribute bandâ€? has come to mean, breathing new life into a once-great style and sound. Crepe Place; $8; 9pm. (SP)
Itâ€™s that time of the year again, when the smoke rises high and the cookies run dry, along with some giggling mouths. Itâ€™s time for Hieroglyphicsâ€™ 420 show, where hopefully the audience isnâ€™t too baked to stay awake. Ever since the â€™90s, this Oaklandbased hip-hop collective has gained a huge following through it live performances, its website as a spot for underground hip-hop movements and, of course, its jazzy, funky beats.The signature logo, plastered everywhere on stickers and T-shirts featuring what looks like an unimpressed threeeyed alien, has gained cultural significance.The energy that flows from these nine performers will surely awaken any sleepy eyes, whether your day was shrouded in smoke or not. Catalyst; $18 adv/$23 door; 9pm. (MW)
Celebrating Creativity Since 1975
BLUE SKY RIDERS
LOCAL NATIVES Indie kids unite! Donâ€™t let their impressive mustaches and button-down shirts with rolledup sleeves distract you. When you actually listen, Local Natives have got some funky, misty and silky songs. You can hear a little Afro-pop guitar along with some hyper and punctual drumming. Letâ€™s not forget that chorus of harmonizing angels that are definitely fun to groove to. Am I getting carried away? These L.A. boys have performed at festivals such as Coachella and SXSW and are hugely popular in the UK. One of their songs was even used in an Australian election campaign. If youâ€™re looking for a perfect date night, congratulations, you just found it. Catalyst; $14 adv/$18 door; 8pm. (MW)
JOHN FULLBRIGHT With the release of his sophomore album, titled From the Ground Up, roots singer-songwriter John Fullbright broke out of regional stardom in his native Oklahoma and made, if not topped, many Americana best of charts in a year that included monster albums by Bonnie Raitt, the Avett Brothers, Mumford & Sons and the Lumineers.

CHICK COREA & THE VIGIL To talk about Chick Coreaâ€™s career is to talk about the last 50 years of jazz music. A keyboardist whose first professional gig was with Cab Calloway, Corea is considered one of the major post-Coltrane jazz musicians. Boasting a rĂŠsumĂŠ that reads like a whoâ€™s who of the genre, he helped to birth fusion as part of Miles Davisâ€™ band and his work with Return to Forever stands up as essential listening of progressive jazz. Considered one of the most significant jazz artists since the 1960s, Coreaâ€™s influence on the genre has been profound and he has a whopping 59 Grammy nominations and an NEA Jazz Master title to prove it. Kuumbwa; $35 gen; 7pm & 9pm. (CJ)

years storytelling, his Southern plains-steeped voice, and an ability to draw from a variety of musical influences and styles without losing his authentic sound.

In 1993, Kenny Loggins came to Santa Cruz and recorded a live record, appropriately titled Outside: From the Redwoods in the USCS Festival Glen. On Sunday, he returns to town with his new group, the Blue Sky Riders. Comprising Loggins and acclaimed Nashville singer/songwriters Gary Burr and Georgia Middleman, the Blue Sky Riders create songs with well-crafted lyrics, catchy hooks and tight three-part harmonies. Possessing a strong pop-country sound, this band reveals another dimension of Loggins and showcases some of country musicâ€™s most successful songwriting talent. Rio Theatre; $25 gen/$40 gold; 7:30pm. (Cat Johnson)

must save the president when heâ€™s trapped in a terrorist attack on the White House. OZ THE GREAT AND POWERFUL (PG; 130 min.) When three of Ozâ€™s witches first meet Kansas transplant Oscar Diggs (James Franco), theyâ€™re disappointed. This, they worry, canâ€™t possibly be the great wizard everyoneâ€™s expecting. Can he prove them wrong before the magical landâ€™s epic problems spiral out of control? THE PLACE BEYOND THE PINES (R 140; min.)

If Tyler Perryâ€™s temptation was to stop making 150 movies a year, weâ€™d suggest he take it. Alas, the title refers to writerdirector Perryâ€™s latest story about a married woman tempted into an affair with a billionaireâ€”and the fallout. UPSIDE DOWN (PG-13; 100 min.) For 10 years Adam has loved Eden, who lives in a twinned world, where gravity pulls in the opposite direction (a great excuse when someone doubts your long-distance girlfriend is real). Desperate, he begins a dangerous quest to reconnect with her.
weatherâ€”getting livelier each week. Not only does the Buttery make some of the best coffee in town, it also puts my taste buds in touch with the amazing and always addictive zucchini muffin. Armed with these ingredients, I like to loll out in the side patio and listen to some sweet fiddle, guitar and mandolin music. Is it true that Paul and Emily Rangell have successfully cloned themselves? How else can they be making beautiful music literally everywhere, at once? Well, no matter. They are. Serious breakfasts and freshly conceived lunch fare are also available at The Butteryâ€” wildly popular and justly so. But Iâ€™m still one of the muffin and coffee types. Only Burt Levitsky has a more spartan and regular habit. The Buttery holds down the corner opposite Shoppers at 702 Soquel Avenue & Branciforte, and itâ€™s open daily from 7 to 7. Yumâ€ŚFarmers Markets all over the county are loaded with asparagus, green garlic, the first of the seasonâ€™s strawberries and acres of tulips. Feast your eyes and palates!

Sparkle and Plenty BY CHRISTINA WATERS
ALDO PROSECCO: Rita Bottoms (author, traveler, former head of UCSC Special Collections) tasted this dry bubbly in Venice, asked Shopperâ€™s to order it, and served itâ€”generouslyâ€”at her recent book publication soirĂŠe at La Sirena antique & collectibles emporium. The Ingalls Street front patio literally dripped with local literati and fans of Tom Bottomsâ€™ oil paintings and Ritaâ€™s piquant notations. The book is @WTTa 3QabOaWSa(DS\WQS (available at La Sirena). The prosecco is an unbelievable $11.99 at Shopperâ€™s
Corner. Crisp and dry, it positively drives every other prosecco right off the sparkling map. Get some. Drink some. Sparkle and bubble! PIZZERIA AVANTI HAPPY HOURS: This just in! Jeremy
Federico from Pizzeria Avanti emailed to let me know that the cozy pizzeria on Mission Street now has happy hours, Monday through Wednesday in the bar area. â€œFrom 5:00 to 7:00 we are offering 1/2 price 12-inch pizzas and $2.00 off beer and wine,â€? the proprietor told me. Now this is the sort of offer I
find hard to resist, especially since Pizzeria Avanti wines by the glass are already a low $8 each! Alsoâ€” listen up Westside neighborsâ€” Pizzeria Avanti now offers Westside Wednesdays. This means that diners will have a choice of any 12inch pizza and a glass of wine for $15. â€œOr they can bring some friends and choose any 16-inch pizza with a bottle of wine for $30.00,â€? Federico explained. The full menu is still available during both events. Sounds like a cost-effective plan. Pizzeria Avanti, 1711 Mission St., SC, (831) 425-1807â€”itâ€™s whatâ€™s for dinner!
creator of the astonishing citrus chiffon cake with buttermilk gelato. Page, a former baker at India Joze, is now creating gorgeous desserts and pastries at Avanti, as well as making classic celebration cakes for custom birthday and anniversary events at the restaurant. Recently the restaurant catered a 95th birthday party out on the semiprivate side dining deck, which has outdoor heaters incidentally. For the occasion, Page created a multitier cake complete with brilliantly colored roses made entirely of icing. The pastry chef makes custom cakes for in-house parties, but she also creates daily temptation such as a special tiramisu, using almond flour that is gluten free! The Avanti dessert menu also features Pageâ€™s butterscotch Budino with salted caramel topping, and a cookie plate with French macaroons, biscotti and homemade fig newtons. Amazing sweets! 0
