Sep 17-Dec 10 | Palo Alto Art Center

cityofpaloalto.org

Part of the center’s Climate Connections exhibition series on the very pressing subject of climate change, “Fire Transforms” presents a different perspective on one of the chief dangers facing Californians. Instead of sinking into despair over the increasing frequency of deadly wildfires, the artists embrace the spirit of the burning phoenix and find new ways to see fire as a transformative force. (SS)

Season II

Sep 17, 2022-Jan 8, 2023 | Triton Museum

tritonmuseum.org

Opening at the Triton Museum the same day as a new Lawrence Ferlinghetti exhibit, Season II is a joint collection with local Asian-American art collective Chopsticks Alley.

scu.edu

Nov 4-May 7 | New Museum Los Gatos

numulosgatos.org

From November through Spring, NUMU features the work of Muwekma Ohlone Tribal Photographer Kike Arnal as part of a broader project to honor the tribe’s vitality. Arnal’s photographs not only explore the Muwekma’s rich history, but also usher viewers into careful consideration of current issues the tribe faces.

Sky Hopinka

Opening Nov 4 | San Jose Museum of Art

sjmusart.org

The film work of Native American artist Sky Hopinka creates a haze of myth, dream, smoke and everyday life. Fish swim through mountains, voices overlay each other and the spirits begin to watch the living. His 2019 film imagines a new mythology for the Xąwįska, the pipe used by the Ho-Chunk Nation to revive the fainted. Seeing and Seen, Hopinka’s new work, will likewise take viewers to the edge of consciousness—and then one step further. (MH)

Joji

Sept 1 | Frost Amphitheater

live.stanford.edu

The path from YouTube prankster to viral R&B idol is one perhaps only walked by the musician known as Joji. A star of the Asian-American media group 88Rising, the singer/producer’s strangely off-kilter ballads strike at the heart with a weird wink. 2022 single “Glimpse of Us” went #1 in seven countries after exploding on TikTok, but he’s bringing more than a glimpse to the Frost. (MH)

Pablo Cruise

Sep 3 | Mitchell Park Bowl

eventbrite.com

If the success of bands like Haim and Mac Demarco have proven anything, it’s that soft rock is back. Who can deny a solid groove and a catchy melody? No one, that’s who. Pablo Cruise, the Bay Area’s own sultans of soft rock, play Palo Alto in September, bringing all sorts of yachty ’70s vibes to the Mitchell Park Bowl. “Love Will Find a Way” to go to this show. (MH)

Gunderfest

Sep 3 | Playback Studios

instagram.com

San Jose practice space Playback Studios has long played a crucial role in the local DIY scene. At a time when few other rooms were available as host, their lobby has happily welcomed countless bands from the 408 and beyond. This September, they throw a benefit show for Gunderson High School’s music program featuring a baker’s dozen (13) bands, selections of the local punk, alt rock, indie and metal scenes all turning out to help the future of local arts. (MH) 

Danny Elfman

Sept 16 | Frost Amphitheater

events.stanford.edu

Few performances at Coachella 2022 held a candle to Danny Elfman’s. Tearing through a setlist that included Oingo Boingo classics, a Nightmare Before Christmas medley and the theme song to the Simpsons, Elfman commanded a massive orchestra while strutting shirtless and shredding the guitar. Riding the high from that memorable performance, Elfman brings the music of his Tim Burton film collaborations on tour, including a stop at Stanford. (MH) 

Dry Cleaning

Sept 21 | The Ritz

theritzsanjose.com

Dry Cleaning singer Florence Shaw’s delivery is so intensely deadpan, so devoid of human emotion, it is almost subversive. “Do everything, feel nothing,” she intones in the chorus of agitated post-punk single “Scratchcard Lanyard.” Then, for good measure, she repeats it. It’s bleak and wry in the way only a British post-punk band can be. The band come to San Jose a month before releasing their second album. (MH)

Sunny War

Sept 22 | Hammer Theatre

hammertheatre.com/sunset-series

Simple Syrup, the 2021 album by guitarist/singer Sunny War, is a lot of things at once. A little folk, some blues, some punk, a little Elliott Smith, all filtered through Sunny’s striking guitar work and unaffected voice. Sunny made a lot of fans with her 2019 NPR Tiny Desk concert; at the Hammer, she delivers a rooftop sunset performance—a perfect accompaniment for her dusky acoustic. (MH)

The Wallflowers

Oct 3 | Guild Theatre, Menlo Park

guildtheatre.com

One listen to the poetic rock ’n’ roll that Jakob Dylan, the front man of the Wallflowers, churns out is enough to spark comparisons to a certain great troubadour of the sixties counterculture. This fall the band tours in support of Exit Wounds, its first new studio-album in nine years. Exploring metaphorical scars with a full electric band, Dylan carries the torch onward, literally and figuratively embodying the legacy of great American songwriting. (AM)

Celebrating David Bowie

Oct 8 | San Jose Civic

sanjose.org/events

A star-studded cast of space oddities touches down at the San Jose Civic this October to celebrate the life and work of David Bowie. Helmed by one of Bowie’s greatest guitarists, Adrien Belew (Lodger), alongside the chimerical Todd Rundgren, the crew also includes Fishbone’s Angelo Moore and a host of others. Having performed pre-pandemic, the group brings the show back now. A wise choice, seeing as any time is a good time for some Bowie. (MH)

Zulu

Oct 11 | X Bar

dice.fm

The last time all-Black LA hardcore band Zulu played the X Bar, they quickly turned the entire room into a mosh pit. The unrelenting, less-than-10-minute set has since been viewed thousands of times on YouTube, and now they’re ready to bring Cupertino another night to remember. Atlanta’s slightly-psychedlic Playytime and Chicago hardcore group Buggin join them at this highly headbangable show from The Hard Times. (MH)

Bit Brigade

Oct 16 | The Ritz

theritzsanjose.com

Players are already grabbing their controllers, because this concert is for them. Bit Brigade shreds the soundtrack of favorite NES games while a gamer shreds through a speedrun of that very same game. Fans root for the speedrunner as he dodges incoming attacks while dodging around the dance floor. Among the classic NES childhood favorites played are Contra, Castlevania, Metroid, and Zelda. (CC)

Deerhoof

Oct 22 | The Ritz

theritzsanjose.com

Few bands have carved out their own space the way San Francisco’s Deerhoof have. Fiercely independent—sometimes even from rhythm and melody—the endlessly inventive four-piece have released seventeen full-lengths, including a medley album and a collaboration with jazz legend Wadada Leo Smith, yet have always sounded like themselves. Indie rock doesn’t get much more thrilling, or indie, than Deerhoof. (MH)

Silvana Estrada

Oct 22 | Frost Amphitheater

live.stanford.edu

Mexican singer-songwriter Silvana Estrada, who grew up in a family full of musicians and instrument makers, plays her debut solo album at Frost Amphitheater. Marchita displays her amazing lyricism and smooth vocals, which mesh with the warm tunes of the cuatro guitar to create a mesmerizing sound. It is easy to see her childhood of music and education culminate in this masterpiece. (CC)

The Dead Boys

Nov 6 | The Ritz

theritzsanjose.com

Whoever said “Punk’s not dead” clearly didn’t consider the work of Cheetah Chrome, Stiv Bators, Jimmy Zero, Jeff Magnum and Johnny Blitz. Those boys have been dead since ’77. The quintessential Cleveland band emerged from the ashes of proto-punk group Rocket from the Tombs, dropped a punk perennial in “Sonic Reducer” from their debut Young, Loud and Snotty and have inspired countless punk legends sinc (see 2013 film CBGBs). The dead live at the Ritz this November. (MH) 

Social Distortion

Nov 18-22 | Guild Theatre

guildtheatre.com

Will no one take away Mike Ness’s ball and chain? If the veteran California punk’s lyrics are to be trusted, he’s lonely, and he’s tired—and he can’t take any more pain! 44 years after forming in Fullterton, Calif., the quintessential blues-punkers come to Menlo Park for four nights of hard rock about hard times at the Guild. The second half features Urethane, the new band from San Jose pro skater Steve Caballero. (MH)

Sept 8-Oct 2 | Los Altos Stage Company | Bus Barn Theater

losaltosstage.org

The play’s central character is somewhere on the spectrum, and he’s investigating the killing of a neighborhood canine. Quirky? Sure. But this play by Simon Stephens based on the novel of the same name by Mark Haddon has also been described as “eye-opening, life-affirming and unmissable.” (SS)

Bull in a China Shop / Collective Rage

Sep 9-Oct 2 | Pear Theatre, Mountain View

thepear.org

Bryna Turner’s 2017 play Bull in a China Shop made waves upon its debut with its masterful rendering of first-wave feminist Mary Woolley and her love affair with the writer Jeannette Marks. Though warmth and humor fuel this story, bravery lives at its core. At one point, Marks asks Woolley, “You want a revolution?” Making a fool of anyone who considers early-1900s women dull, Woolley answers, “I am a revolution.” (AM)

Every Brilliant Thing

Sep 15-Oct 16 | City Lights Theater Company

cltc.org

Nov 23-Dec 18 | San Jose Stage Company

If this era seems fraught with peril, take comfort that we’re not faced with a world war—yet. Kevin Kelleher of The Stage is adapting Robert Riskin’s 1941 screenplay about a newspaper reporter who turns a derelict into a national hero—and then watches as her media creation becomes a pawn in a wealthy man’s political ambitions. Fake news? Power-hungry billionaire? Sounds familiar. (SS)

theatreworks.org

Cinderella

Nov 12-27 | Opera San Jose | California Theatre

operasj.org

Upon its cinematic release in 1955, Walt Disney’s Cinderella romanticized a certain kind of self-abnegating womanhood many have resisted since.

Deutscher’s twist? Cinderella is a composer herself. (AM)

1 COMMENT

  1. Not sure whether San Jose Stage changed their lineup at the last minute or if this was their idea of taking the premise a bit too far, but the fact that the company’s website shows the dates for “The Play that Goes Wrong” as June & July 2023 — rather than currently running, as advertised — is really disappointing.
