Nov. 1: George Scribner at the Healdsburg Center for the Arts

Oct. 19: Pink Floyd Laser Spectacular at the Lincoln Theater

Posted By on Wed, Oct 16, 2013 at 3:08 PM

It’d be easy to make a joke connecting the Pink Floyd Laser Spectacular and psychedelic drugs, but that’d be doing the spectacle a disservice. A Pink Floyd laser show is awesome, even at age 10, even at age 70, and should be experienced at least once in everyone’s life. With a 50,000-watt stereo system, the Lincoln Theater is just the place to witness this glorious combination of audio and visual stimulation. And be sure to high-five the veterans in wheelchairs who might be there—the theater routinely gives free tickets for its events to residents of the nearby veterans home. Shine on Saturday, Oct. 19, at the Lincoln Theater. 100 California Drive, Yountville. 7pm. $20—$30. 707.944.9900.

Sep. 11: Grand Opening of the Napa Valley 9/11 Memorial Garden

Posted By on Wed, Sep 4, 2013 at 4:05 PM

Avid Bohemian readers may remember our 2011 cover story on Napa artist Gordon Huether’s creation of a 9-11 memorial using steel from the fallen World Trade Center towers. Six pieces of steel from the buildings, totaling 30 tons, now make up the memorial in Napa. When he received the steel, “It was caked with concrete. There were coffee cups in it. It was quite a moment,” says Huether. Despite the public relations disaster when a group made flyers announcing the completion of “Napa’s 30-Ton Erection,” emotions are sure to run high at the grand opening of the Napa Valley 9/11 Memorial Garden on Wednesday, Sept. 11, on Main Street between First and Pearl, Napa. 7pm. Free. 707.226.7372.

Nov. 14: Warren Miller's 'Flow State' Pre-Party at Lagunitas

Posted By on Thu, Nov 8, 2012 at 12:11 PM

I’d like to give thanks to Warren Miller for continuing to make films about daredevil skiers and snowboarders, whizzing down horrendously steep and icy mountain tops to almost certain death, all of which I get to watch from the comfort of a warm theatre seat while stuffing my mouth with popcorn. You too can live vicariously through Miller’s latest flick, Flow State, premiering Nov. 17 at the Marin Center, with a pre-party co-sponsored by the Bohemian and Lagunitas Brewing Company. Drop by to enter the raffle for tickets to the premiere, a Spyder jacket, Heavenly passes, winter snow gear and Warren Miller apparel. If that’s not enough, there’ll be pint specials flowing all night. The Flow State pre-party happens on Wednesday, Nov. 14, at Lagunitas Tap Room. 1280 N. McDowell Ave., Petaluma. 6pm—8pm. Free. 707.527.1200.

May 12: Spruce Deuce Open House at the Feed Barn

Posted By on Wed, May 9, 2012 at 2:00 PM

From the outside, the Feed Barn is just what it sounds like—a large empty warehouse that used to be a feed store. But for the last two years, it’s been home-away-from-home to a coterie of artists, makers, tinkerers and musicians, who this week throw open the doors in a spring open house for a showcase of dizzying creativity. Included among the festivities—with food provided by chef Mark Malicki—is the unveiling of the mighty Spruce Deuce, a large kinetic sculpture designed and built by the masterful David Farish and Skye Barnett. Live music and plenty of beer round out what’s easily the coolest thing happening in Rincon Valley on Saturday, May 12, at the Feed Barn. 55 Middle Rincon Road, Santa Rosa. Free. 4pm–midnight. No phone.
