Sept. 12: Marianne Aya Omac and Joan Baez at 142 Throckmorton

Posted By on Fri, Sep 9, 2011 at 9:08 AM

At the age of 12, Marianne Aya Omac was given an important gift: a copy of Joan Baez’s Live in Europe. On the streets of her native Montpelier, France, Omac sang and sang and sang, spreading a fire that started with Baez’s initial spark. Eventually, Baez herself heard Omac’s powerful voice, and this year, she brings the young folksinger to the States. Baez and Omac make a joint appearance on Monday, Sept. 12, at 142 Throckmorton. 142 Throckmorton, Mill Valley. 7:30pm. $28–$40. 415.383.9600.

Sept. 10: Fiesta de Independencia at the Wells Fargo Center

Posted By on Fri, Sep 9, 2011 at 9:06 AM

“When are you going to open a restaurant?” I’ve asked this question at least four times to the family, always at community events. “Oh,” they say, “maybe someday.” In the meantime, they serve damn good tacos, enchiladas and pastries, all from handed-down recipes. The last time I ran into them was at last year’s Fiesta de Independencia, a giant event with mariachi bands, community networking, booths, kids’ playgrounds and plenty of food. Hopefully they’ll return on Saturday, Sept. 10, at the Wells Fargo Center. 50 Mark West Springs Road, Santa Rosa. 1–6pm. Free. 707.546.3600.

Sept. 10: Iris Dement at the Sebastopol Community Center

Posted By on Fri, Sep 9, 2011 at 9:04 AM

Before her last album, a collection of gospel standards released seven years ago, fans had weathered an eight-year drought, wondering if she’d record again. However intermittent her output may be, there’s a reason to stick along for the ride with Iris Dement—she’ll sing three notes and it’ll last for years. Here’s hoping she’ll play some new material, among songs from the wonderful records Infamous Angel and My Life, on Saturday, Sept. 10, at the Sebastopol Community Center. 390 Morris St., Sebastopol. 8pm. $25–$28. 707.823.1511.

Sept. 9: James Hill and Friends at Napa Valley Opera House

Posted By on Fri, Sep 9, 2011 at 9:02 AM

YouTube is full of novelty performers covering well-known hits in wry fashion, but James Hill’s version of “Billie Jean” just might outpace them all. With the bass line looped and a drum beat running, Hill speak-sings the song while strumming . . . a ukulele! Hill headlines the weekend-long Wine Country Ukulele Festival with his ear-catching versions of “Flight of the Bumblebee,” “One Note Samba” and the world-famous “Super Mario Bros. Theme” on Friday, Sept. 9, at the Napa Valley Opera House. 1030 Main St., Napa. 8pm. $25–$50. 707.226.7372.

Aug. 31: San Francisco Mime Troupe at Mill Valley Community Center

Posted on Fri, Sep 2, 2011 at 12:09 AM

When I was a kid, Shields and Yarnell ruled the school. I’d do that “trapped in a box and can’t get out” routine on a disturbingly regular basis. But make no mistake, the 52-year-old San Francisco Mime Troupe won’t be doing any of that silly stuff when they bring 2012: The Musical to Mill Valley. “We are satirists seeking to make you laugh at the absurdities of contemporary life,” they declare; see them on Wednesday, Aug. 31, at the Mill Valley Community Center. 180 Camino Alto, Mill Valley. 6:30pm. Free. 415.285.1717.
