Taarka at CEBU April 6

This week at CEBU Lounge:

Friday, April 5: The Quiet American w/ Martin Gilmore 9:30 p.m. – Modern Old-Time American Folk

The Quiet American is husband and wife duo, Aaron and Nicole Keim. A home-grown modern folk revival, their music incorporates ballads, banjo breakdowns, raggy choruses, gospel duets and other dusty Americana gems.

Saturday, April 6: Taarka 9:30 p.m. – Gypsy/Dawg/

Celtgrass/Rock

Described as a “collision of Django Reinhardt and David Grisman,” Taarka is the new acoustic supergroup presenting masterfully deep Americana and gypsy-jazz string band music. Led by the husband-and-wife team of David Pelta-Tiller (mandolin, tenor guitar, vocals) and Enion Pelta-Tiller (five-string violin, vocals), bassist Troy Robey and lately a fourth member has been either master guitarist Grant Gordy (David Grisman Quintet), or the impeccable guitarist Ross Martin (Matt Flinner Trio)

Lisa Ornstein plays house concert April 6

“Lisa Ornstein and Dan Compton relish in musical conversation. They transcend the form of the fiddle-and-guitar duo by playing completely together from somewhere deep inside the music. Although they are both accomplished virtuosos on their instruments, what is really exciting about them is the interplay between the two. They’re definitely awake and listening – and no two performances are ever quite the same.” Catch them on Saturday, April 6, at 7 p.m., Paul and Kristen’s house, 401 Montello, Hood River, 541-387-4011.

Stillman at Gallery 301

Join Mike “Crazy fingers” Stillman and the Hood River Goldstars for a raucous evening of jazz on Friday, April 5, starting at 5 p.m. The Gallery 301, corner of Oak and Third, downtown Hood River, 541-436-0281.

Groove Project at The Pines

The Groove Project will be appearing at The Pines during Hood River’s First Friday celebration on April 5 from 5-8 p.m.

The band includes Tim Mayer on keys/vocals, Ryan Kolberg on bass, and Tim Ortlieb on drums. The band will also have a special guest appearance from our favorite unrelated Mayer: Charlene on vocals.

The band will be playing some new material from their recent Easter Sunday gig that surprisingly works just as well in a winery as in church. The Pines Tasting Room, 202 State St., Hood River; 541-993-8301.

Parkdale third graders sing "12 Disaster Days of Christmas"

Welcome to your sing-able Christmas gift list. What follows is an emergency rendition of “12 Days of Christmas” – for outfitting your home or car in case of snow storm, earthquake, flood or other emergency. Read it as a simple list, or sing it to the tune of “12 Days” – you know, as in “ … and a partridge in a pear tree…” Not to make light of it, but the song is a familiar framework for a set of gift ideas that you could consider gathering together, even if the recipient already owns items such as a bunch of coats, tire chains and flashlights. Stores throughout the Gorge are stocked up on all these items. Buying all 12 days might be prohibitive, but here are three ideas for checking any of the dozen off your list (notations follow, 1-12.) The gift items needed to stay warm, dry and safe are also coded to suggest items in your abode (A) in your car (C) or both (B). 12 Gallons of Water (A) 11 Family meals (B) 10 Cans of propane (A) 9 Hygiene bags (B) 8 Packs of batteries (A) 7 Spare coats (B) 6 Bright red flares (C) 5 Cozy blankets (B) 4 Tire chains (C) 3 Flashlights (B) 2 cell phone chargers (B) 1 And a crush-proof first aid kit (B) Price ranges? Here’s a few quotes for days Three, Two, Four and Nine: n A family gift of flashlights (three will run $15-30, Hood River Supply, Tum-A-Lum) n Cell phone chargers (two will run $30-60) n Tire chains (basic set, $30, Les Schwab, returnable if unused for the winter) n Family meals ($100 or so should cover the basics for three or four reasonably well-fed days) n The home kit should be kept in a handy place near an exit, and remember that water needs to be replenished every few months. If you have a solid first aid kit already, switch out the gift idea with “and-a-sto-o-u-t- tub-for it-all …” Otherwise, it’s a case of assembling your home or car kits and making sure all members of the family know what the resources are and how to use them (ie flares and propane). Emergency situations are at worst life-threatening, at best deeply uncomfortable if you and your family are left without power for an extended period, or traveling and find yourself in a situation where you need to wait out a storm, lengthy traffic delay, or other crisis. Notes on the 12 gift ideas: 12 – Gallons of water: that’s one per person in a four-member family to last for three days, the recommended minimum to be prepared for utility outages. 11 – Easy-open packaged goods, energy bars, dried food and nuts are good things to include for nutrition. Think of what your family of four needs for three days to stay fortified and hydrated (see number 12). Can-opener also recommended 10 – If you have a propane camping stove, keep extra fuel handy. 9 – Hygiene bags: put packaged moistened towelettes, toilet paper, and plastic ties in large garbage bags (for personal sanitation) Resource list courtesy of Hood River County Emergency Management, Barbara Ayers, manager/ 541-386-1213. The county also reminds residents to Get a Kit, Make A Plan to connect your family if separated, and Stay Informed. See www.co.hood-river.or.us to opt-in for citizen alerts. Enlarge
