Songwriter Patrick Davis’ Paradise

There are no more CD sales (what’s a CD?) and streaming revenue is just a trickle of what Songwriters once earned. Superstar performers’ hits now list teams of songwriting contributors and although live performances are back in demand, if your name is not marquee-worthy (and sometimes even if it is) the gigs that pay a living wage are few and far between.

Culture Crush: Fog Holler, Mindful Eating Film Festival, and More

Head over to The Block this weekend for a night of music and coordinated outfits from Fog Holler. Formed in 2018, the group claims to pair “raw, honest poetry with keening brother duo harmonies reminiscent of the Stanley Brothers and the Blue Sky Boys.” They describe their original music as “at once a poignant, self-reflective reaction to modernity and a vibrant celebration of American roots music.” The group recently released their fourth album, Fog Holler, which explores themes including mental health, climate crisis, gender identity and more. Tough content becomes easily digestible when paired with the right melody. Come have a night out and explore the world through Fog Holler’s eyes! The show is this Friday, Aug. 5, at The Block, 20 Grey St, Petaluma. Show from 6-9pm. Free.

Saxophonist Bobby Watson Lights Up The 222

The 222, a recently launched nonprofit venue in the Paul Mahder Gallery, presents some of the world’s greatest jazz musicians amid an array of consistently well-curated photography, sculpture, and canvases rendered via various media. A capacity audience on Sunday night, June 24, probably didn’t hurt either, as Watson delivered a gorgeous if lopsided set that concluded on an abrupt but rapturous note.
