Music - Love Your Local Band

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.

Kathleen Murray

Kathleen Murray

Folk singer Kathleen Murray’s show at Kuumbwa Jazz is going to be huge for a few reasons. First, it will be her last concert before she moves to Seattle in September to continue her studies. Second, it will be a release party for her debut CD, Woodland Voices. And finally, it is a big deal because initially, Voices wasn’t going to be released to the public.

Two Fish Bound by a Golden Cord

Until March 20, (Spring Equinox), Earth and her kingdoms (mineral, plant, animal, human) experience the influence of Pisces, sign of the World Savior. Whereas the task of Aquarius is as world server, the Pisces task is saving the world—tasks given to the two fishes. Pisces never really enters matter, and as the last sign of the zodiac includes all the signs. During Pisces, having gathered all the gifts of the previous 11 signs, it is a good time to prepare for new initiating plans when Aries (sign of beginnings) begins. No wonder Pisces, like Scorpio, is so difficult (both are ruled by Pluto, planet of death, new life, regeneration, transformations). Both signs (with Scorpio drowning in dark and deep waters) find life on Earth a hardship, disorienting (from the spiritual perspective), at times feeling betrayed. Life is a paradox, especially for Pisces. Each zodiacal sign represents and distributes a different phase and facet (12) of the Soul’s diamond light, Pisces is the “Light of Life itself, ending forever the darkness of matter.” It takes two fish to complete this work (creating eventually an extraordinary human being). One fish turned toward the material world (in order to understand matter), the other fish toward the heavenly world. Around the two fish is a silvery cord binding them together. The two fish are forever bound until all of humanity is redeemed (lifted up into the Light). This is the dedication of all world saviors (Buddha, Christ, the NGWS). Thus the sacrifice and suffering experienced by Pisces. Knowing these things about Pisces, let us help them all we can. Sometimes all of humanity is Pisces.
