Within days of the first, wildly successful Hootenanny at the North Bay Film and Art Collective, event organizers celebrated with our modern version of the old-time vaudeville afterglow. In other words, they started a Facebook page. It soon emerged that there was more than memorializing at hand, though, because this weekend’s second installment, titled Dustbowl Road
, features over two dozen bands spread out over just five hours. At a block party including Video Droid, the Last Record Store, Community Market and Gaia’s Garden, there’s the music of Waters, J.D. Limelight, Skiffle Symphony, the Easy Leaves and truckloads more; workshops and jams continue throughout the day until the afterparty at the North Bay Film and Art Collective that night at 6:30. Grab your banjo and shuck on down on Saturday, May 22, at Clement and Mendocino Ave., Santa Rosa. Noon-5pm. Free. 707.525.1963.
