Jan. 25: Grizzly History in Santa Rosa

Posted By on Wed, Jan 24, 2018 at 6:42 AM

bim2_300dpi_cmyk.jpg
It’s too bad that the only place you can see a grizzly bear in California today is on the state flag (or in a zoo). Still, tales of encounters with grizzlies from 19th-century settlers and adventurers endure today thanks to people like educator and researcher Susan Snyder, whose book "Bear in Mind: The California Grizzly" has inspired an exhibit of the same name at the History Museum of Sonoma County. Snyder gives a lecture titled The California Grizzly: 19th Century Hero & Antagonist, which paints a rugged and thriving portrait of the grizzly, on Thursday, Jan. 25, at 425 Seventh St., Santa Rosa. 6:30pm. $10–$15. 707.579.1500.

Meditative and ethereal, the ambitious indie-folk collage of Chicago-based Circuit des Yeux—the namesake of vocalist, composer and producer Haley Fohr’s longtime solo project—has never been better than on last year’s album, Reaching for Indigo, which presented Fohr’s emotionally drenched voice swimming in a sea of lush acoustic guitars, strings, organs and ambient digital effects. Fohr is currently traversing the West Coast with her project and North Bay promoter Shock City, USA hosts Circuit des Yeux in concert with Oakland’s Emily Jane White and Santa Rosa’s Self Care on Sunday, Jan. 21, at Atlas Coffee Company, 300 South A St., Santa Rosa. 7pm. $10. facebook.com/shockcityusa.
