A discussion of Grassroots Journalism (revised, second edition published 2007) by Eesha Williams.
Ralph Nader said "If information is the currency of democracy, then it's a good practice for journalism to be of, by, and for the people in the search and reporting of abuses from concentrated power.  Eesha Williams brings this kind of grassroots journalism to your desk, to your mind, and to your heart with the highest of standards. A very motivating manual indeed!"

Bassnectar Celebrates the Release of “Underground Communication” March 31 at DNA Lounge 
Zilla and the Fungineers support SF’s #1 DJ as Sunset & join forces for a massive blowout 
WHAT: Bassnectar’s Record Release Bash for “Underground Communication” 
WHEN: Saturday, March 31, 2007, 10pm doors 
WHERE: DNA Lounge | 375 11th St, San Francisco CA | 415.626.1409 
WHO: Bassnectar (AKA DJ Lorin –, Zilla (, the Funginears, Adam Ohana (, Motion Potion ( 
TICKETS: No presales! $20 tickets available at the door 
PROMOTIONAL PARTNERS: Sunset Promotions & Get Freaky 
PRESS INFO: Scott Simoneaux | | 323.969.04041 
     DETAILS: On Saturday, March 31 at DNA Lounge, Bassnectar celebrates the release of “Underground Communication” (Om Records) with a massive blowout party at DNA Lounge. More than a standard club show, this multifaceted event will be a “Live Experiment In Sonic Expression” featuring a unique 2-hour Bassnectar performance including dozens of dancers and performance art. The show will also feature live performance from Colorado next-tronica heroes Zilla, puppet masters the Fungineers. 
     Having already been named San Francisco’s #1 DJ in Nitevibe, the Bay Guardian and SF Weekly, Bassnectar’s national recognition is rising to new heights. Lorin Ashton has earned the love through a constant stream of groundbreaking releases and constant nationwide touring. In 2006 alone, he played more than 150 dates, including headline performances at Shambhala, Sea of Dreams, Symbiosis, All Hallows Eve, and SF Decompression, in addition to his annual pilgrimage to Burning Man. On the new album "Underground Communication" (due out in May on SF Indie Om Records), Bassnectar takes another step forward in his genre-bending blend of musical styles and emotions, combining the visceral melodic presence of modern listening music, with the force and volume of sound system dancehall devastation. Whereas the previous record featured collaborations with musicians and bands, the new record is more of an exploration of hip-hop culture, featuring scores of MCs and rhythmic poetics mashed atop a heavy, driving range of tempo and, of course, those signature throbbing bass lines. Rooted firmly in political conviction, philosophical intention and backed by a rabid fan base and dedicated following, “Underground Communication” sets a new standard for the possibilities of merging music, art, new media and social activism. 
     Boulder, Colorado trio Zilla has emerged like a Phoenix from the ashes of beloved rock group String Cheese Incident. The trio features drummer Michael Travis, bassist/guitarist Aaron Holsten and hammered-dulcimer wizard Jamie Janover. The music itself is a plethora of grooves, beats, and highly percussive breaks which cause the listener to become engulfed within a sonic vortex of sounds encompassing them. The band plays on pure emotion, so each night is different and varied, and no song is ever the same. As pioneers on the eternal quest for brand new kinds of fun, the Funginears integrate vocal percussion, puppetry, poetics, collaborative storytelling and (r)evolutionary silliness to create interactive extravaganzas for children of all ages. Grounded in the healing power of laughter and the visionary potential of co-creative play, Funginears utilize puppets to channel the musical energy of beatboxing and multidimensional soundscapes into a narrative flow, taking the audience on an epic journey through the realms of imagination.

San Francisco’s World Water Challenge  7:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. on April 4
Women’s Building SF, 3543 18th St. in the Mission, @ Valencia and Guerrero St.
WHAT: Join faith leaders, water experts, community members, and environmental groups as we celebrate international World Water Day with an evening of education and action. The World Water Challenge is an hour-long community education program about the dangers of corporate control of water and actions to turn back the tide.  Included are stories of corporate water abuses in Asia, Latin America, the United Kingdom and North America.
The event is part of Corporate Accountability International's “Think Outside the Bottle” campaign, which raises awareness about the growing global water crisis, and organizes to protect water as a human right, instead of a corporate commodity.
The United Nations estimates that by 2025, 2 out of 3 people will not have access to water. Find out how we can work together here in the Bay Area for this invaluable common good. Free food provided! Bring your families, friends, and neighbors. All are welcome.

BunnyJam07 is coming up, Saturday April 7th.
It's going to be at the Porn Palace space in SF (mission, near the metreon parking garage).
Great space, that looks really nice inside. Castle Room, Barnyard, Retro Bar Room, Jail Room, and more.
The theme is going to be: "The Hare-Itics Ball : Ye Ole Bunny Jamme"  Hop with it.
We really need some fresh bunny art so it's not just the same stuff recycled from last year.
We have alot of small (as in up to 5x5 feet) spaces spread around the venue that we'd love to fill with bunny art. This is where you come in to play. Do you have an idea for an art installation, interactive art piece, performance art piece, or anything really, that you would like to bring to bunny jam?
If so, send me a message or email me at
We also need general volunteers for set up and running the party, but that doesn't take as much advanced planning.

the Bring Your Own Big Wheel race is back and curvier than ever!*
2007 will be the SEVENTH ANNUAL BYOBW, neighbors and police permitting, rain or shine ... there are always prizes, one year featured tighty-whities with custom denim iron-on Lombard Street Skid Marks and other years have featured paintings, string art, shellac plaques, and embroidered knit caps and t shirts, all made by me. Lombard Street is of course not the crookedest street, especially compared to Vermont Street in Potrero Hill, but with a built-in international audience and scenic landscaping, who could resist? Prizes are given for all sorts of reasons, occasionally for being first, always for being last, and as the race is designed for plastic children's toys which are prone to failure when carrying over 80 pounds, winning isn't the goal here - survival is. This is a free event!!!!

Thu April 12, 7:30–9 p.m. Nancy DeStefanis, Executive Director of San Francisco Nature Education, will lecture and screen the short films Above the Nests, directed by Nancy DeStefanis, and Heron Island, directed by Judy Irving (Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill). Nancy will also present a brief slide show of highlights of the 2006 great blue heron colony.
Sponsored by the San Francisco Naturalist Society, the films will be shown on Thursday, April 12, 7:30–9 p.m. at the Randall Museum Theater, Randall Museum, 199 Museum Way, San Francisco. For more information see the Calendar of Events on our website Apr 14 Nat'l day of CLIMATE ACTION
