Hurricane Roses Explore Life and Death With Second Album

hurricane-roses

Roots-tinged rockers Hurricane Roses found a following with the earnest, revealing songs on their 2011 debut record. A quick follow-up would have made a lot of sense for the Bay Area band, but it also would have betrayed the authenticity that their fan base appreciates. In truth, the band members have been… » Read More

Rick Estrin Brings the Nightcats to Redwood City

rick-estrin-nightcats-redwood-city

Growing up in San Francisco with a “beatnik” for a sister, it didn’t take long for Rick Estrin to be introduced to the blues. “When I was 11 years old she started showing me some of her blues records,” Estrin recalls. “I was instantly fascinated.” Champion Jack Dupree’s first album, Blues from… » Read More

Movies

'Boyhood'

Like all really first-rate movies, Boyhood has many facets to admire. Just one of them is the unusual way it was made. Richard Linklater followed a small group of actors during the course of 13 years as an experiment. Mason (Ellar Coltrane) and his sister Samantha (Lorelei Linklater) live with their mother, Olivia (Patricia Arquette), with father Mason Sr., known as Dad (Ethan Hawke), dropping in for visits—and we see the actors age in their roles over the course of a decade. » Read More

'Venus in Fur'

A female friend who did a little bit of role-playing said that the important thing was not to let the mask drop. If you came in the room wrapped in leather, you had to continue to look like you meant business. By contrast, Roman Polanski's pervy and very fun two-character film Venus in Fur lets its marvelous star Emmanuelle Seigner drop and reapply the mask, and still be a redoubtable female avenger. Seigner is Vanda, an actress who reverses the flow of power coming from her would-be director. » Read More

'Fearless Genius: The Digital Revolution in Silicon Valley'

As a photojournalist firmly dedicated to telling stories of global significance, Doug Menuez has borne witness to some incredibly difficult and terrifying things. He's seen people killed, has run toward raging forest fires and spent time in squalid drug dens. He and his fellow "hardcore" news photographers "were all willing to die to make a picture that would make an impact," Menuez says. » Read More

Silicon Valley Roller Girls Search for a New Home

Flashes of green, black and blue whipped around the track as the Silicon Valley Roller Girls B-Team, the Killabytes, took on the Faultline Derby Devilz from Hollister. Skaters slid across the floor, elbow and knee pads scraping on the track as speeding bodies collided in a roller derby bout that would end with a victory for the home team. SVRG's team came out on top, with a score of 249-119. » Read More

Features & Columns

Death Cafe at Studio Bongiorno

At Death Cafes people drink tea, eat cake and discuss death." After reading that declaration on the front page of DeathCafe.com, I was hooked. After learning that Santa Clara's second official Death Cafe would unfold this Friday at Studio Bongiorno, I was hooked even more. First things first. A Death Cafe has no agenda. There is neither a theme nor an objective. It is merely a discussion group, not a grief counseling session. The cafes take place on a non-profit basis, usually in very accessible and respectful places, with no intention of leading people to any conclusion, product or course of action. » Read More

The Self Publishing Revolution

In a rundown, chilly Minnesota town, a Somali-born delivery driver makes his way to drop off packages and letters to reluctant and sometimes violent residents. So hostile are some recipients that he's perpetually prepared to run. Ambo knows that because he's mixed-race, his deliveries almost inevitably draw unwelcome attention. Each knock on a stranger's door could be the bell to a fight. » Read More
