WHAT DOES MARIN County singer-songwriter Roberta Donnay have in common with mobster Tony Soprano? Just this: the Grammy-nominated Donnay may also be appearing on HBO this fall. On Sept. 3, Donnay performs at a special HBO concert being filmed for the network's Reverb program. The Black Crowes are the focus of the show, but their performance is being shot elsewhere. Orixa is among the Bay Area acts scheduled to perform with Donnay at the Labor Day show, which starts at 8 p.m. at the Paradise Lounge, 308 Folsom St., San Francisco. No word yet on when the show will air.
"My intent is definitely to push the boundaries," Soundscape owner Marc Silver says of his Erotic Art Exhibit. For the seventh year, Silver is using his Santa Rosa audio-video store as a gallery for explicit artwork. The exhibit features some graphic images that even Silver acknowledges may cross the boundaries of good taste--including a piece by an Eastern European artist depicting a nun masturbating with a crucifix. The show opens with a reception on Saturday, Sept. 1, at 5 p.m. at Soundscape's new location at 1044 Fourth St.
