Feb. 5: Pat Jordan at the Hopmonk Tavern

When you’ve fronted one of Sonoma County’s most dependable club acts and won annual awards left and right for dance-rock ditties like “Hugs Not Drugs,” what’s the next step? Become a spiritual mentor and open a rock ’n’ roll ashram? Found a chain of strip-mall Mexican restaurants? Those are all well and good, but if you’re Pat Jordan, leader of the Pat Jordan Band, you author a book and call it My Penis Is in This Book, Please Read It. Now, even if we knew what the book was about, it’s seems better to simply let the mystery hang. Maybe there’s a reference to his penis in the book. Maybe the entire story is about his penis. Maybe, good God, there’s some pulp-making process for the book’s pages that is better left unconsidered. Either way, Jordan celebrates the release of his book by singin’ and strummin’ with the Pat Jordan Band, with Partner and Tommy Rickard from Wonderbread 5 opening, on Friday, Feb. 5, at the Hopmonk Tavern. 230 Petaluma Ave., Sebastopol. 8pm. $12–$15. 707.829.7300.Gabe Meline
