Feb. 25: MC Yogi at Hopmonk Tavern

Things are getting kinda awesome for the Giacomini family. Decades-long owners of Toby’s Feed Barn in Point Reyes Station, the younger Giacomini generation isn’t exactly following in the pellet-and-hay business of their ancestry. Adam Giacomini, aka DJ Amen, spins at clubs and shows through the week and heats up the airwaves on 106.1-FM KMEL on weekends. And Nick Giacomini, aka MC Yogi, has pursued the strangest career path of all, mostly because it never existed until he created it: a rapping yoga instructor. From his Yoga Toes studio in Pt. Reyes to the world-famous Jivamukti Yoga School in New York, MC rhymes about Shiva and Hanuman over banghra-heavy beats, often to portions of the audience who’ve brought their mats and bust a downward dog during songs. That won’t be the case when Yogi guests at this week’s Juke Joint in Sebastopol, though—every Thursday night, there’s no parking on the dance floor allowed. Shake your asana when MC Yogi performs Thursday, Feb. 25, at Hopmonk Tavern, 230 Petaluma Ave., Sebastopol. 9pm. $10–$15. 707.829.7300.Gabe Meline
