The Sea Wolves

The Sea Wolves

Nick “Sick Boy” Anchorheart has been in a lot of bands. But until recently, he’s never been in that one that’s fully embraced his true punk rock influences—bands like the Misfits, the Ramones and Social Distortion. With the Sea Wolves, he takes those influences and creates exactly the raw, powerful, vibrant, mid-tempo garage-punk sound he’s always wanted.

Sugar by the Pound

Sugar by the Pound

Bluegrass began as the music of the people, and Boulder Creek’s Sugar by the Pound is doing its best to keep it that way.

Babewatch

Babewatch

Most often, drinking and hanging out inspires very little besides more drinking and hanging out. For the band Babewatch, however, it inspired a song … about drinking and hanging out. “Guys Hanging Out” was the first song they ever wrote, and it was exactly what they were doing when they wrote it.

Getaway Dogs

Getaway Dogs

Kai Killion always gets a little weirded out when someone puts on his band’s album from last year, Mermaid Legs & Getaway Dogs. It makes the singer and guitarist for Getaway Dogs hear his own music in an entirely different way.

Moo!

Moo!

Local rockers Moo! are about to make some noise. After forming last year and receiving a $2,000 grant from UCSC’s Alumni Association, the band has been hard at work preparing to release material. They plan to make their debut EP—Songs for All Seas, All Ships—available via their website before they play the Crepe Place on October 2. But that’s only the beginning.

China Cats

China Cats

There are a lot of Grateful Dead tribute bands out there, so basically it’s a buyer’s market for hungry Deadheads. The members of Santa Cruz’s China Cats are themselves Dead fanatics and take a unique approach to the whole thing. In fact, they don’t even consider themselves a tribute band, because they don’t attempt to play Dead songs note for note; but rather go for the essence of what the Dead shows were like.

The Carolyn Sills Combo

The Carolyn Sills Combo

Singer-songwriter Carolyn Sills is always mining the depths of the human experience to find the best way to write a killer song—even if the experience is not her own. Sometimes this means looking beyond the obvious and fixating on details that some might consider insignificant. Those are the things she finds truly fascinating.

Jake Nielsen's Triple Threat

Jake Nielsen's Triple Threat

Blues musician Jake Nielsen didn’t name his band Triple Threat because he plans on being the next big writer/director/actor. The name stems from the fact that Triple Threat is a trio. Nielsen doesn’t even always have the same two guys backing him, but he sticks to the three-person format regardless, because he likes how it showcases his music.

Mylo Jenkins

Mylo Jenkins

The string band scene has exploded in Santa Cruz. But before there was any sign of a bluegrass or Americana revival, there were a handful of finger-plucking folky bands in town building a noticeable following, like Mylo Jenkins.

Thanks Buddy

The first thing to note about Thanks Buddy is that they have an awesome name.

Santa Cruz Restaurant Week

A huge part of Santa Cruz Restaurant Week has always been about offering a great dining experience for an affordable price. For some locals, the $25 flat-rate cost has provided the opportunity (or the excuse!) to try new spots, and indulge in Santa Cruz fine dining in a way they might have thought too pricey before.

 

Scorpio Sun, New Moon Eclipse, Mercury Direct

The Sun enters Scorpio’s mysteries Thursday under a new moon and partial solar eclipse (something essential has come to an end, its purpose completed). In Scorpio we harbor secrets, are devoted to something deep, dark and hidden. Sometimes it’s ourselves. We can bring great suspect to our assessment of others. Scorpio is the scorpion, the serpent and the eagle—three levels of development. As the serpent we take shelter in our beliefs. Sometimes we bite (or sting). The eagle vanquishes old beliefs through its sharp intellect, soaring high in the air, seeking to understand through perspective. Understanding releases us from the bondage of fear. The eagle is like the mother soothing feelings of mistrust, offering protection. Knowledge does this, too.
