Saying Jamie DeWolf has a way with words isn't quite right—it's more like he has his way with words, bending, twisting, breaking and rearranging them to their most expressive positions before jamming them into the ears of audiences around the world. Now he's coming to Santa Rosa.
The great-grandson of L. Ron Hubbard is a crusader against Scientology, citing its "dangerous" belief system and "pyramid scheme"–like components as factors that, he says, destroys people's lives—including his grandfather's. He's also a filmmaker, teacher and actor, not to mention producer of the East Bay variety show Tourettes Without Regrets and NPR's Snap Judgment.
DeWolf highlights an evening of celebration for CMedia Labs, formerly the Community Media Center of the North Bay (kudos on the name change) at the Arlene Francis Center. In addition to DeWolf, there's music by Church Marching Band and a separate DJ lounge featuring Shifty Shey and Good Hip Hop Monthly, trapeze art by Quenby D. Trapeze, breakdancing by Reprezent Clothing, standup comedy by Lila Cugini, belly dancing by Krysta Cook, comedy and video by Eat the Fish Presents, hip-hop by Pure Powers and storytelling by Chris Chandler. Phew!
The C Media Rebirth Party takes place at the Arlene Francis Center on Saturday, April 12, at 8 pm. 99 Sixth St., Santa Rosa. $12–$20. 707.528.3009.
