Like a locomotive charging ahead on frantic drum beats, feedback whistle blaring to announce a slight change of course, Nisennenmondai's music is a loud woosh of steady, intrepid momentum. The Japanese trio offers both the soundtrack for dancefloor convulsions and jarring noise rock experiments. Get lost in the forward thrust of "Tori Track 1" or the meditative clang of "Neji Track 5" on the Tokyo act's MySpace page.

  • 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.
