Re: “Call Me Elvis

Re: “Take It Outside

Napa Porchfest is the best (and the first) in the West! Thank you for this sweet article. Permit me to correct a couple of things in it:
The idea got rolling not during a comparison of regional architecture, but after a Facebook post on Jan. 11, 2011, about the proposed Porchfest in Somerville, Mass. — one of many in the East inspired by the original Ithaca Porchfest. Facebook users can see it at http://on.fb.me/Wc9xXg.
I commented that Napa didn't have enough porches, but was quickly corrected by friend and architect Juliana Inman, a city council member (now vice-mayor) and boardmember of a local preservation trust, who pointed out the city's many historic neighborhoods where porches are everywhere.
Music-loving Thea Witsil of Wildcat Vintage Clothing was the other person who jumped in right away to say "Let's do it here!"
We were soon joined by other community members including Rachael Clark, Mark Lucas of the Napa Bicycle Coalition and innkeeper Jamie Cherry; I wish I could list everyone.
Napa Porchfest was the first I ever attended and I still think it's the best, but this year I finally got to enjoy the Somerville fest that also started in 2011 and inspired all of us in Napa.

Re: “Under the Radar

Just to clarify some more, Ben Stephens and Gabriel Smith created Live Musicians Co-Op eight years ago, as they saw there was a great need for it. Nathan Prowse came along much later.

Re: “Under the Radar

Jus to clarify a few misunderstandings, Ben Stephens was the founder of the live musicians co-op and nathan prowse got on board to expand the place.

Re: “Under the Radar

The July 2nd show sounds rad! I'm glad LMC is helping bring back a decent music scene to Santa Rosa since there are already so many great bands, there just needs to be more great venues.

Re: “It's a Hoot

Well to be fair (HA!), Jesse Shantor and Adam Lessnau were the original creators of the name (or maybe there was someone before as well). Just another mystery about Santa Rosa's oldest tradition, as this is the 103rd Annual Hooligan Street Faire.

Re: “It's a Hoot

Thanks so much for the great article! Charlie, you are doing some amazing things for the community through your writing. I am really into your writing style as well - much thanks.

I just want to give credit to Kalei Yamanoha, a dear friend of mine who coined the term "Hooligan St. Faire."

See you all this weekend!

Re: “BottleRock Bender

Very interesting way to write a review. I like it.

Re: “Out with the Old!

I agree that the old should be replaced. New technology is always better then old and lately the reliability is much better too. The manually way is no longer best.

Good to see him talking about music, and not about all that political garbage...

Re: “Bottlerock It, Man

Just hope the new promoters don't make the same mistakes as the old ones. Don't understand why they kept the name after all the bad press it received from last year.

Fun line up but rather go to High Sierra instead.

Re: “Bottlerock It, Man

Maybe a smart move. Older fans can afford to buy fancy wine? I would go, but still too pricey. Good lineup, though.

Re: “Bottlerock It, Man

Sean,

Thanks for the comments. There will definitely be something for everyone, except the younger crowd, who will likely be priced out anyway. This will be a good festival for the target demographic, those of us who grew up listening to groups like Smash Mouth (Fush Yu Mang was one of the first albums I bought with my own money).

Have a good gig!

Re: “Bottlerock It, Man

They aren't trying to be versitile, they are desperate to keep their word that they can do this and these are the only bands that would agree to do it. Poor planning. Poor execution. Damaged brand. No surprise here. I would not be surprised if this is a worse bloodbath than last year. I hope they pay the bills.

Re: “Bottlerock It, Man

Hey Nicolas :-)
If I had to guess, I'd say they're trying to be versatile for the sake of getting a whole
big range of generations. A little something for everyone...know what I mean?
Have you ever seen us play? It's a fun show and we have fun with the crowd...well these days anyway.

Keep it real.

Sean (Smash Mouth)
