Nov. 26: Echorev at the Raven Theater

Posted on Fri, Nov 25, 2011 at 10:43 AM

Yes, Echorev frontman Johnny Nicholson has a voice softer than velvet and a face worth swooning over. But beyond this alluring façade lies pure talent. The Geyserville native joined forces with experimental German drummer Jörn Biefeldt and singer-songwriter-bassist Ann Driscoll to form the band, and the result, evidenced on their album, Find North, is a sound that’s warmer than a winter scarf and smoother than fine whiskey. This fluid trio takes the stage on Saturday, Nov. 26, at the Raven Theater. 115 North St., Healdsburg. 7:30. $12. 707.522.0330.

Nov. 23: Chris Isaak at the Wells Fargo Center

Chris.Isaak.jpg

While the “normal” girls at my elementary school were openly obsessing over Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonathan Taylor Thomas, I had a more closeted celebrity attraction. Chris Isaak’s writhing, water-drenched body in the “Wicked Game” video was enough to cement my undying love for this less-than-likely heartthrob even at the young age of eight. Isaak steals hearts with his come-hither voice and countryish twang on Wednesday, Nov. 23, at the Wells Fargo Center. 50 Mark West Springs Road, Santa Rosa. 8pm. $45.50–$67.50. 707.546.3600.

Posted on Fri, Nov 25, 2011 at 10:25 AM

The Hopmonk Tavern found a perfect niche in Sebastopol among the beer-drinking leftist hippies and hipsters. Who would have thought their Sonoma counterpart would have reached comparable success? With recycled-wood décor and a small front-room stage for low-key music acts, the place is usually packed; it celebrates a one-year anniversary with free appetizers and live music from the Pat Jordan Band on Wednesday, Nov. 23. 691 Broadway, Sonoma. 5pm. Free. 707.935.9100.

Nov. 19: "Singgalot: The Ties that Bind" at the Sonoma County Museum

Posted on Thu, Nov 17, 2011 at 11:04 AM

singgalot-2.jpg

The karaoke machine affords the American public endless drunken nights wailing off-key lyrics to already overplayed classics. This heavily practiced bar tradition is all thanks to Filipino inventor Robert del Rosario (thanks a lot, dude). Filipinos carry a vast accumulation of inventions tied to their names; however, they’re often overlooked, even by Filipinos themselves. ‘Singgalot: The Ties That Bind,’ a traveling exhibition, brings Filipino history to life through rare photographs and illustrations. The opening reception commences on Saturday, Nov. 19, at the Sonoma County Museum. 425 Seventh St., Santa Rosa. 5–7pm. $10. 707.579.1500.

Most people take every precaution to ensure their lives are guaranteed for another day. Most fasten their seatbelts, look both ways crossing the road and even cook chicken to the appropriate temperature. However, the professional snowboarders and skiers in Warren Miller Entertainment’s newest film ‘Like There’s No Tomorrow’ throw every sense of caution down a cliff in the name of entertainment. Usually featuring B-roll wipeout footage, Miller’s films can be painful to merely watch, so break out the ice packs and Bengay on Thursday, Nov. 17, at the Wells Fargo Center. 50 Mark West Springs Road, Santa Rosa. 7:30pm. $23. 707.546.3600.

Nov. 16: David Sedaris at the Marin Center

Posted on Thu, Nov 17, 2011 at 10:45 AM

David Sedaris developed a strong sense of practicality at an early age. “If you aren’t cute, you may as well be clever,” writes the miniature author in his book, Me Talk Pretty One Day. While admirable appearances weren’t his family’s forte, wit, satire and a knack for sharing embarrassing personal details were. (David’s sister Amy Sedaris plays junkie/whore/runaway Jerri in the TV cult classic Strangers with Candy.) Come see how generations of unattractiveness transform into unparalleled entertainment on Wednesday, Nov. 16, at the Marin Center. 10 Avenue of the Flags, San Rafael. 8pm. $39–$42. 415.499.6400.
