Stitch in Time
Sewing for the newly dead has long been a source of comfort to grieving families. To honor those who have died the Sonoma County Museum is beginning an annual tradition of displaying AIDS quilt panels honoring county residents, starting with a reception on Friday, March 1, at 5 p.m. Panels will remain on display through March 3, then will be sent to San Francisco’s NAMES project to be included in the huge testament to the disease stitched together there.
To contribute a panel, drop off your offering on or before Feb. 29 at the Sonoma County AIDS Foundation, 520 Mendocino Ave., Santa Rosa. Panels may also be delivered to the Sonoma County Museum, 425 Seventh St., Santa Rosa, on March 1. For additional information, call 544-1215.
Los Lobos, the band immortalized by its soulful spin on Ritchie Valens’ “La Bamba” and awarded for its unique blend of blues, rock, and Mexican folk, has been nominated for a Grammy award for the group’s children’s album, “Papa’s Dream,” recorded and mastered by Warren Dennis Kahn of Santa Rosa’s Banquet Sound Studios.
With traditional songs and rock classics reworked with the band’s distinctive playful spirit–accompanied in part by Chicano music hero Lalo Guerrero’s narration–“Papa’s Dream” utilizes children singers, storytelling, and rhythm to introduce kids to a rockin’ world of the imagination.
If you’re interested in local music but can’t make the club scene, let the television do it for you as KRCB hosts a new music show highlighting local acts caught in live performances. Produced by David Ludwig, “Music Tonight” has already devoted air time to local faves Hangman’s Daughter and Yellowood Junction, and will air “Hangman’s Daughter: Second Set” on Feb. 29 at 8:30 p.m. and again on March 1 at 1:30 p.m.
