For the Week of
August 25-September 1, 2004

Cover Story: Dance This Mess Around:
Santa Cruz is a city with live-music laws straight out of 'Footloose.' The way this town treats arts and entertainment is a joke--and no one's laughing.

The Thin Med Line: Downtown Santa Cruz isn't the only place wrestling with culture-vs.-quiet issues. Aptos' Mediterranean Club is a hit with music fans, but is drowning in the county permit process.

Nüz: Even in anti-Bush Santa Cruz, the Committee to Defeat Bush continues its efforts to get voters to give Bush the boot.

Aliens vs. Predators: A modest proposal to open up the presidency of the United States to international talent and make sure Dick Gephardt never runs again.

Rev: Your Windshield: Place a clear piece of Saran Wrap across the front of the windshield, peel the wrap off and violà!--a hangable piece of insect art.

Crabface vs. Squidhead: 'Alien vs. Predator': No matter who wins, we snooze away 100 minutes.

[Music]
[whitespace]
Hue's Next: The Cabrillo Music Festival's most recent program radiates the new rainbow of color and timbre of the 21st-century orchestra.

The Rock Show: The 418 Project; Patti Smith.

Think Globally, Grow Locally: Swanton Berry Farm has a remarkable vision that goes beyond just heavenly, farm-fresh organic berries.

[Stage]
[whitespace]
Mind Games: George and Martha do battle in powerful Shakespeare Santa Cruz version of Albee classic.
