With more than 17 years of writing and playing music together, the Bottom Dwellers have a musical connection and “band sound” only achieved through the test of time.

Brad Hoshaw is an award-winning singer-songwriter residing in Northern California, best known for his soothing tenor voice and his contemplative and earnest storytelling. Brad is just as capable at churning out pop gems as he is at playing tear-in-your-beer somber lullabies. His style combines the haunting almost churchy feel of Jeff Buckley and the country character of Townes Van Zandt. He believes in the healing power of sad songs and values his authentic connection with the listener above all.

Petunia & The Vipers
6:30pm
$10 Cash Only


Louis Armstrong was once asked what his favorite kind of music was, and his response was simple; “Good music”. Petunia & the Vipers’ sound may not sit comfortably in one certain genre, but “Good Music” describes it well. Together with his band the Vipers they play original music combining elements of classic 1920’s, 30’s 40’s, 50’s, 60’s, and 70’s country, country blues, western swing, alt country rock, Mexicana, French cabaret, Romanian, ragtime, jazz, punk and folk music’s. A new music that springboards off of music of the past and jumps into the present day, left with only echoes of the past… Something in between 1920’s and steam punk.

Smith & Tegio
6:30pm~ Free
Bring Tip Money!


Smith & Tegio is a duo featuring vocalists and acoustic guitarists Austin Smith and Mark Tegio. While these two singer songwriters and long time friends are both San Diego natives, they have been living in the San Francisco Bay Area for the past several years now. Mostly passing those years sitting at a kitchen table littered with beer cans and a dirty ashtray either writing, learning, or playing songs together. It was at those tables that Smith & Tegio's amalgam of outlaw country and folk music was born. It’s the inevitable result of a  bad case of wanderlust from a head full of Merle Haggard and Waylon Jennings, and a heart full of Townes Van Zandt and Blaze Foley that doesn't know whether to laugh or cry. Still, they do not fit neatly into either genre, but instead have created their own blend of the two: Outlaw folk. Smith & Tegio just released their self-titled debut album earlier this year. Throughout the album there are subtle nods to the duo's outlaw country and folk influences.

PG&E Warns of Scam Activity

Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) is alerting customers to be aware of ongoing scam phone calls with criminals threatening to shut off power if a payment is not made. There have been double the number of scam attempts, in some areas, compared to this time last year.

PG&E’s Corporate Security department has received several reports in the past few weeks regarding scammers requesting payment on past due utility bills immediately using a Green Dot card, Money Pack or gift card. These most recent reports have come from across PG&E service area.

Another new trend that PG&E is seeing is that the scam is becoming more detailed. Scammers include specific names of customers, and in some cases, guessing general dollar amounts owed. They are also disguising their true phone numbers with a caller ID that says “PG&E” or “Pacific Gas & Electric.”

Other scam phone call tactics include:

               Notifying residents that they are eligible for a federal tax refund related to their utility bill;
               Trying to sell services related to solar evaluation; and
               Claiming to represent a PG&E initiative to sell a product in order to gain access to their home.

PG&E offers the following tips to help protect customers from all types of potential scams:

               PG&E will not ask for personal information or a credit card number over the phone. Anyone who has received such a phone call and provided credit card or checking account information should report it immediately to the credit card company or bank and law enforcement.

               Customers with concerns about the legitimacy of a call about a past due bill, service request or request for personal information are encouraged to call PG&E at 1-800-743-5000.

               Customers should always ask to see identification before allowing anyone claiming to be a PG&E representative inside their home. PG&E employees always carry their identification and are willing to show it to you.

               If a person claiming to be a PG&E employee has identification and you still feel uncomfortable, call PG&E’s customer service line at 1-800-743-5000 to verify an appointment and/or PG&E’s presence in the community.  If you feel threatened in any way, notify local law enforcement immediately.

               Customers who have an appointment with PG&E will receive an automated call back within 48 hours prior to a scheduled visit, or a personal call from a PG&E gas service representative prior to a scheduled visit.

               If you feel threatened in any way, notify local law enforcement immediately.

PG&E takes security seriously and will actively work with law enforcement to help stop any scam victimizing customers. Anyone who has received such a call can report it immediately by calling PG&E at 1-800-743-5000 or visit www.pge.com/scams.

THIS WEEK'S RECIPE:

Yummy Collard Rolls

www.wholefoodsmarket.com


Ingredients: (local and organic when you can)
  • 2 bunches collard greens
  • 1/3 cup orange juice
  • 3 tablespoons tahini
  • 1 clove garlic finely chopped
  • 2 cups cooked brown rice
  • 2 cups cooked adzuki beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 red bell pepper finely chopped
  • 2 teaspoons toasted sesame seeds

Directions:
Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Remove and discard thick stems from collard greens and place leaves in boiling water. Cook 5 minutes or until just tender. Gently remove leaves from water and drain in a colander. Carefully transfer 12 largest leaves to a baking sheet lined with paper towels. Chop remaining leaves and squeeze to drain excess liquid (you should have about 1 cup chopped leaves).
In a large bowl, whisk together orange juice, tahini and garlic. Add chopped collards, rice, beans, bell pepper and sesame seeds. You will have about 4 cups mixture. Arrange a reserved collard leaf on your work surface and top with 1/3 cup rice filling. Roll up, starting with the large end of the leaf and rolling it over the filling, tucking in the ends, like a burrito. Repeat with remaining leaves and filling and serve.

We LOVE our PLANET.
We know you love our PLANET too!
Let's all do our part.


"It is estimated that at least eight million tons of plastic waste is added to the world's oceans each year.

Plastic can remain in the environment for over 1,000 years before it begins to decompose.

And if we continue at the rate we're going, studies predict that by 2050 there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish by weight.

As many as one trillion plastic bags that are produced each year are discarded after 15 minutes of use."

-ecowatch.com

 

Think about how much petroleum is needed
to produce all of this plastic...

That's why we would like to encourage our awesome customers to bring your own reusable produce and shopping bags. Our vendors will also be working towards using less plastic packaging.

"It's up to us to make this thing last."

Don't Forget Your Bags!
