Aug 4: Tom Richmond at Schulz Museum

Posted By on Wed, Aug 1, 2012 at 10:45 AM

Big-ass forehead. Squinty eyes all squished together. Mouth gaping like a shark’s, with nearly as many teeth. Caricature is funny because our brains do it already: to recognize thousands of people whose facial features differ only by millimeters, we exaggerate the two or three things that set them apart. Caricaturists like Tom Richmond, Mad magazine illustrator and winner of this year’s Reuben Award for Outstanding Cartoonist of the Year, just exaggerates a little more. Richmond gives caricature lessons and speaks about his new instructional book on Saturday, Aug. 4, at the Schulz Museum. 2301 Hardies Lane, Santa Rosa. Class, $35—$40, 10am. Book signing, free, 2pm. 707.579.4452.

Aug 4: Petaluma Music Festival at Sonoma-Marin Fairgrounds

Posted By on Wed, Aug 1, 2012 at 10:43 AM

Do you love the fair, but hate the rides, the livestock show, the flower show, the art show, the bird show, the horse racing, the cakes, the contests, the cotton candy, the quilts, the gyros, the fudge, the frozen lemonade, the sand sculptures, the magicians, and the monster trucks? Then you’ll dig the Petaluma Music Festival, which is just like being at the fair, except for all that stuff! Music’s the focus at this annual fundraiser for music in the schools—Jackie Greene headlines, while the Pimps of Joytime, Poor Man’s Whiskey, Nicki Bluhm, the Highway Poets and 11 other bands play this Saturday, August 4, at the Sonoma-Marin Fairgrounds. 175 Fairgrounds Drive, Petaluma. $30. 11am. 11am-8:30pm.

Aug 1: Scott Capurro at George's Nightclub

Posted By on Wed, Aug 1, 2012 at 10:41 AM

During a set in Paris a few years ago, comedian Scott Capurro illustrated his job by drawing a line in the air with his fingers. “Line. Crossing it. Moving line,” he explained. Much of the rest of the set wouldn’t be tremendously wise to reprint in all its graphic detail, but really, should anyone be that offended by a gay man joking about gay sex in 2012 anyway? Watch Capurro move the line forward while expertly shutting down hecklers and stroking the microphone stand on Wednesday, Aug. 1, at George’s Nightclub. 842 Fourth St., San Rafael. $10—$15. 8:30pm. 415.226.0262.
