Peacetown: Soul Section, Bohemian Hwy, Alexander’s Band and more
Aug 4, 2021 4:30 pm
Barlow Event Center
All of Sebastopol becomes Peacetown, USA, every Wednesday evening from 4:30-7:30 from July 7 to September 8, 4:30-7:30 pm. This year, Peacetown is a multi- stage event, mostly centered around venues at the Barlow, but all of downtown is getting into the act. Peacetown festival goers can enjoy the many art galleries, including the world class Sebastopol Center for the Arts, take a walk at the the Laguna de Santa Rosa (right next to the Barlow), visit Patrick Amiot’s sculptures on Florence Avenue, or enjoy at movie at Rialto Theatre. Peacetown has morphed into a festival celebrating music, art, fine food, nature and our rich, diverse culture — and, as always, admission is always free!
Here’s the line-up for August 4:
Barlow Event Center: Soul Section
The core of The Soul Section as with any great funk band is the rhythm section, which started playing together more than twenty years ago. The beat begins and ends with drummer Michael J. Perez. Mike started playing drums at an early age, honing his skills playing in drum corps, touring the country in a nationally renowned group. Playing with the Violet Fox Band, a popular Motown and Soul revue, Mike found the pleasure of putting people on the dance floor with that steady beat.
Crooked Goat Brewing Stage: Bohemian Hwy
Woodfour/Fern Bar stage: Alexander’s Band
Community Market Stage: Clementine Darling
Clementine Darling is a Folk Singer-Songwriter making waves in San Francisco’s music scene. Originally from Seattle, Washington, she busked her way down the West Coast in 2010 on a road trip that led her to put down roots in San Francisco’s North Bay— Sonoma County, California. The two locals heavily influenced her first two albums— Americana Folk songs and Indie ballads, with undertones of Seattle 90’s grunge. Clementine has played festivals including The Emerald Cup, sharing the bill with Margo Price and Rising Appalachia, as well as SXSW, Railroad Square Music Festival and Balanced BreakFEST.
