May 5: Cinco de Mayo in Roseland

Posted By on Wed, May 2, 2012 at 1:47 PM

Cinco de Mayo is the perfect excuse to celebrate like it’s summer when it’s not yet. The weather is usually nice, everyone’s generally happy, and there’s always a lot going on to celebrate Mexico’s independence—except that’s not what it’s about at all! On the anniversary of el Dia de la Batalla de Puebla (“the Day of the Battle of Puebla”), take time to enjoy the seventh annual Roseland Cinco de Mayo Celebration, filled with food, dancing, music, performances from local bands, a breakdance contest and even a lowrider car show. There are a number of Cinco de Mayo celebrations in the North Bay, but Roseland’s alcohol-free, family event is always the biggest. Enjoy the evening with horchata and without margaritas on Saturday, May 5, in Santa Rosa. 665 Sebastopol Road, Santa Rosa. 3–10pm. Free.

Aug. 28: Farewell Party at the Black Cat

Posted By on Wed, Aug 25, 2010 at 12:32 PM

And so it’s over. Eight years of the wild scene at the Black Cat come to an end this weekend at a closing party on Saturday. No more “gutter nights.” No more stiff drinks (without cutesy names, thanks). No more pool-table-on-wheels being pushed out of the way to make room for whatever band from whatever state happens to be setting up. No more smokers making plans for fornication in the alley. No more begging for a place to stay afterward. No more impromptu shows by the 2 Live Crew. No more drunken orders from Humble Pie. No more stapling bras and dollar bills to the ceiling. No more lesbians bumping and grinding with truckers bumping and grinding with stockbrokers bumping and grinding with waitresses. Well, after this weekend, at least. Get there early. It’ll be packed. Saturday, Aug. 28, at the Black Cat. 10056 Main St., Penngrove. All day. 707.793.9480.

July 24: Rivertown Revival at Steamer Landing Park

Posted By on Wed, Jul 21, 2010 at 9:41 AM

What do we do when the economy is bad? Historically, we dress up, put on a brave face and pretend that everything’s glamorous (see: art deco, The Great Gatsby, swing dancing). These days, we’re more likely to dress down and rehash the roles of our Depression-addled ancestors while accepting the fact that everything is ruined. But we have fun doing it! Enter the Rivertown Revival, a let’s-pretend-we’re-broke event celebrating Petaluma’s heritage with art-boat races, floating river sculptures, food, music and more. It might seem like the Handcar Regatta on water, but event organizers promise it’ll be “less steampunk, more Tom Sawyer.” Music, of course, is in great supply, with Arann Harris and the Greenstring Farm Band, El Radio Fantastique, Baby Seal Club, Old Jawbone, Hillside Fire, Eli Jebidiah, the Crux and more on Saturday, July 24, at Steamer Landing Park, Petaluma. 11:30am–6pm. Free. 707.763.775.
