Lovefingers: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Aug 29 2012

If the past decade of music proves anything, it's that the impossible can happen. Case in point: The popular revival of disco in the mid-'00s, where young DJs in big cities began to practice a form of cultural necromancy on that most forbidden of genres. One of those DJs is Lovefingers (aka Andrew Hogge), the Los Angeles native behind the raucous Black Disco parties, the Lovefingers.org music blog, and the E.S.P. Institute record label. But you might as well throw your preconceived notions of disco out the window — to hear Hogge DJ is to be turned on to a left-field current that incorporates tripped-out jazz-funk, psychedelic krautrock, reggae-tinged garage, and other lost genres from deep in the archives.

  • Felton: Touring the Redwoods
    Blue skies meet redwood canopies in the mountain town of Felton, located just north of Santa Cruz on Highway 9. Once a bustling logging community, the town is now a mix of mellow locals and serene wilderness. Visitors can enjoy the redwoods in nearby Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park and splash in swimming holes in the San Lorenzo River. For a bite to eat stop by Rocky’s Cafe for fruit-laden pancakes, barbeque at the Cowboy Bar & Grill and poolside burgers at the Trout Farm Inn. Other stops worth checking out include Roaring Camp Railroads, the Mount Hermon zip line tour, and the educational Bigfoot Discovery Museum. For beer or cocktails a log cabin bar has you covered.
