New Emily Jane White video: Dagger

(Emily Jane White's last YouTube'd video, for "Wild Tigers I Have Known")

We're big fans of Emily Jane White here at the Weekly -- she made a couple staffers' best of 2007 list, and I'm thinking in 2008 people are going to take even more notice of this talented songwriter. She's also collaborated a couple times with another Santa Cruz indie star, director Cam Archer. White wrote the title track for Cam's moody drama about a gay teen, Wild Tigers I Have Known, and Cam in return has directed a couple of White's videos. The latest partnership between the two is the video for “Dagger,” which Archer directed and which stars actress Lindsey Beamish (also from UC Santa Cruz, and who acted in Shortbus). Such a stunningly sad song, definitely one of my favorites off White's Dark Undercoat. Check out the "Dagger" video here. -- Jennifer Maerz

  • 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.
