Days of the Dead Book Launch
Sunday, October 30, 4:00 pm
San Rafael novelist James A. Jacobs will discuss and read from his historical thriller, Days of the Dead, Sunday, October 30, at 4 p.m. In Mexico, 1968, the year of the Olympics, activist students launch a summer-long protest aimed at reforming a ruthless, authoritarian government. Ten days before the games begin, army troops surround and ambush protesters and their supporters. Known as the Tlatelolco Massacre, hundreds are murdered and disappeared. Daniel Mendoza, a 28-year-old American journalist, violates his professional code by inserting himself into the conflict to avoid a “final solution.” Instead, the crisis deepens, which threatens his life and the lives of those dearest to him.
Saturday, November 12, 8:00 pm
Doors open at 7:30, $15
From China to Italy, and all over the U.S., Dirty Cello brings the world a high energy and unique spin on blues and bluegrass. Led by vivacious cross-over cellist, Rebecca Roudman, Dirty Cello is cello like you’ve never heard before. From down home blues with a wailing cello to virtuosic stompin’ bluegrass, Dirty Cello is a band that gets your heart thumping and your toes tapping!
“Dirty Cello’s music is all over the map: funky, carnival, romantic, sexy, tangled, electric, fiercely rhythmic, and textured, and only occasionally classical.” Lou Fancher, Oakland Magazine.
“The band plays every style imaginable, and does some fantastic covers. (Their rendition of “Purple Haze” is incredible.) But what is most spectacular about them is hearing the depth of soul in Roudman’s playing—it goes beyond what most people would expect from the instrument. She plays it with so much heart, you’ll wonder why more bands don’t have a cellist.” Good Times Santa Cruz
Alive with the Dead/A Fly On the Wall with a Camera
Sunday, December 11th, 4:00 pm
Susana Millman was a West Marin resident in the late ‘70s and early ‘80s, and many of you may recall her clothing emporium (with partner Zuni Picarelli), What’s In Store. In the middle 1980s she switched careers to photography, which coincidentally was about the time that she a) became a serious Dead Head and b) was marched down the aisle by Jerry Garcia at her marriage to the Dead’s publicist . . . .
The end result of all this is a wonderful book called Alive with the Dead/A Fly On the Wall with a Camera, which she is publishing in October. It’s a deluxe coffee table book, 9” by 12,”, with 256 mostly color pages in a slip cover with very fancy foil stamping. It’s unique among G.D. books in that most of the pictures are not of the band on stage but offstage and backstage, doing special projects and such.
After a slideshow/talk presentation on the book, Susana will sign copies while everyone enjoys the music of Dead Again, Petaluma’s finest Dead cover band. A splendid time is guaranteed for all.
