Eureka / Mad River

The Monster Women playing their effortless strain of feel-like-I've-known-this-all-my-life-but-still-so-fresh rock 'n' roll at The Shanty in Eureka, CA - a wonderfully crazy dive bar with a great selection of beer on tap. They had to move the pool table and pinball machine so we could play!

Silhouette of a rugged up Barbara Manning playing at The 2nd Annual Beach Party in the Sky - held at Mad River Beach in Arcata, CA. Watching so many artists and bands play in such a magical setting as the sun sank behind the sand dunes was one of the more memorable experiences I've had on any tour anywhere, in any of my lifetimes.
