This week, the Oceans offer a new multimedia experience, ‘The Poetic Science Revue,’ which explores the mysteries of the universe with folk-centered music and spacey visuals. See science and poetry intermingle on Friday. June 23, at the Russian House, 9960 Hwy. 1, Jenner. 7pm. $15. 707.869.9403.

Even though film audio technology had entered Hollywood by the time Charlie Chaplin began writing ‘City Lights’ in the late 1920s, the legendary silent film star and director decided to keep his signature character, the Little Tramp, quiet for his romantic comedy. Now considered one of Chaplin’s masterpieces, the heartwarming and hilarious City Lights gets a not-so-silent screening in the North Bay this weekend, when the Sonoma County Philharmonic provides an original orchestral score to accompany the film for an outdoor screening on Saturday, June 24, at Gundlach Bundschu Winery, 2000 Denmark St., Sonoma. Doors open at 7pm; film screens at sundown. $75. 707.938.5277.

  • Ray and Barbara Jacobsen in the 1970s.
In 1947, at the age of nine, Ray Jacobsen moved to Sonoma from Colorado with his family, and he never left. He grew up to be an artist and made a living selling and showing vibrant landscape paintings until his death in 2007. Jacobsen’s career includes being one of the founding members of the Arts Guild of Sonoma in 1977, and his oil and watercolor paintings reflected the North Bay’s colorful natural features. This week, a retrospective show, ‘Forty Years of Ray Jacobsen,’ highlights paintings from throughout the artist’s career. The show opens with a reception on Saturday, June 24, at Calabi Gallery, 456 10th St., Santa Rosa. 4pm. Free. 707.781.7070.

Folk songwriter Charles Ellsworth has been all over the map the past few years—literally. Born in Arizona, the musician was living in Brooklyn when he decided to return west to make his latest full-length solo album, Cesaréa, released last month. The album is a blend of Americana grit and post-punk haze that reflects his experiences with dry-heat Arizona summers and frigid New York winters. Though he now calls Salt Lake City home, Ellsworth is touring in support of Cesaréa, and stops in the North Bay for a show on Tuesday, June 27, at the Big Easy, 128 American Alley, Petaluma. Doors at 6:30pm, Free admission. 707.776.7163.
