Not sure why we're not mentioned, since we submitted to the Journal, but the Latin Peppers are playing hot salsa and dance music on Friday, Nov. 22 at Jambalaya starting at 10 PM. Only $5!
Did Jim Dirkin sell his soul in the end for money and favor from Reagan,Bush,and the CIA? Seems its possible because of the resulting death of several missionaries Montt gunned down himself along with the 200,000 to 250,000 indians. Ps,there were no communists,no leftist ,no marxists,just sick,hurt,and poor cathalics on land rich in nickel.A Canadian mining company wanted that land and paid Bush handsomly for Montt to kill off the inhabitants.And The Lighthouse ranch helped unknowingly to finance and now cover up this shame. I know what happened and I will not be silenced. Souls are lost and many need a healing and repentance. I may be killed for telling this but I faced being killed for the lord before.
Its a shame the g.o. ministry is in denile of the killing of 250,000 indians through rios montt's genocide campain that there labors payed for. Many missionaries were killed by preacher brig.gen.montt as well as indiginous mayan indians. I was in the middle of it all.When poisoning me didn't work,they sent me to a fake mission that they forgot was a money laundering front. Well I joined them when they assured me that they didn't beleave in the jim and tammy,pat robertson,jerry farwell brand of charlotanism but that all changed when the cia and jose efram rios montt came to be saved. He was moved up ahead of us all on the list and was a carbon copy of jimmy swagart.Except for the murdering.That was all him and the death squads financed by the church. Seems much worse than Jimmy Jones there kid.Jimmy killed his own followers.Montt of gospel outreach,killed 250,000 indians and 50 or so missionaries that pleaded with him that" there just children",but he had to show his men he is tuff. Your pall Reagan said he was getting a bum rap. And so did his pal Pat robertson.
Oh, yeah! Meg White borrowed Steve Bohner's drum kit -- which I borrowed so Jay Forbes could give my kid drum lessons! Wild!
You could add to #2 the two times that the White Stripes played at the tiny Vista in Eureka!
Oh wise Sagacious Steve, you are the winner of two tickets to tonight's show, courtesy of I Dreamt Last Night artist management and publicity...
“All I really wanted was to try and live the life that was spontaneously welling up within me," writes Herman Hesse in Demian. And to partially answer his following query, that is so very difficult because my income is so very low. Even a tough employment outlook and stifling student debt cannot quell the youthful urge to get out there and dance the night away. For me, at least, this music isn't just a way to anesthetize myself from the tribulations of life. Rather, amidst the absolutely bonkers atmosphere of a MartyParty party, riding the waves of an ego-shattering sonic journey, I find myself able to take a deep breath, look within and tap into the core of my being that is Divine Love. It positively tickles! These embodied moments together on our rare Earth are precious, and with the time given me, I want to get down with the Bass crew for MartyParty, NoahD. and Dubspecialist at Nocturnum tonight.
The Mateel calendar has Steve Earle for Friday night NOT Saturday!

Hows this for honest reporting.....Great show, No violence, not one mention of hatred. Booooom. Please keep protesting and boycotting venues so we can continue to be blessed with these intimate shows that very few get to be a part of. Its honestly working in our favor.
I attending Sonoma Mt Lighthouse in 1977 for about six months, between getting out of the Navy and working overseas with Operation Mobilization. I have great memories of worshiping there.
"We have not had to hear the homophobic hatred at all in the last five years…"
I'm glad about that, really.
Unfortunately, your good fortune is yet to be shared by most LGBT people in countries like Jamaica and Uganda, where performers like Capleton and Beenie Man are still happy to whip up murderous homophobia. Here, honest reporting makes the issue much clearer.
@ wallflower. It has been done. The artists know we don't want to hear it in our reggae and they have honored it. We have not had to hear the homophobic hatred at all in the last five years... The battle rages on despite the progress.
I could careless if any dancehall artist plays here and i find these violently homophobic lyrics despicable, but here's an issue that Mitch, some (not all!) of the LGBT community members don't get, censorship. Clearly Mitch and the Sisters have every right to protest anything they want, but many think they are creating more division in our community. I know many of the people that attend these dancehall shows and none of them support violence against gays. Maybe a few are are homophobic, since it is a cross-section of the public.
I admit i don't know what percentage of these artists (murder musicians) lyrics are violent against gays, but i bet it is very few. These artists have made their "success" on many songs and not on gay bashing. I do agree with Mitch that even one song calling for violence is to many, but his frothing at the mouth towards Doran is going to far.
If every special interest group started attacking artists for any offensive (and yes, violent) lyrics, we'd be left with few artists and arguably a more sterile music scene. Remember Ice-T's Cop Killer song? Or the punk band Millions of Dead Cops? How about Slayer singing about dead Christians? Or, even the band Christian Death? We can go on and on with this game. Yes, these artists may have ugly lyrics, but in my view there are better ways to fight homophobia than protesting dancehall artists and pissing off people that just want to have fun at a show.
If Bob Doran wonders where people get the idea that he is belittling of people's concerns about so-called murder music, perhaps he'll find it worthwhile to study this week's "The Hum."
There he will find no reference to Beenie Man's 2009 concert in Uganda -- a country that is giving serious consideration to the death penalty for consensual gay sex -- in which he sang of how he wanted to cut the throats of all gay men. This led the sponsor, Pepsi, to declare: “We are appalled by the performer’s lyrics and find them repugnant. Our bottling partner in Uganda was not aware of the performer’s views and never would have sponsored the concert with this knowledge.”
Nor will you find "The Hum" talking about the Examiner article headlined: "Beenie Man denies apologizing to homosexuals..."'
Instead, you'll hear of what Beenie Man said in his awkward and uncomfortable youtube video, which is indeed a lovely sentiment. It's unfortunate that, for some Jamaican dancehall performers, a statement like "I respect each and every human being" requires a rapid followup denial.
Imagine if an artist were singing, in a country considering the death penalty for attending a synagogue, of the need to kill all Jews, and Mr. Doran were covering a visit by the artist to the Ocean Grove.
Perhaps he'd give prominent coverage to a statement by the artist that he loves people of all religions.
We can be relatively certain, based on Mr. Doran's column here, that he would not actually point out the artist had called recently for killing all Jews, and he would probably not have space to point out the artist's denial that he'd apologized to the Jews.
Given that until recently it was Mr. Doran's voice more than anyone else's that described to this community what these artists have to say about their desire to burn, hang, machine gun, and throw acid at gay people, it's no wonder many people don't understand what the fuss is all about.
Mr. Doran, as much as the artists themselves, IS THE PROBLEM.
MAn HES GONNA BLOW UP THA SCENE!
