Beth Hart, In her performances, including London’s Royal Albert Hall withJoe Bonamassa and the Kennedy Center with Jeff Beck, Hart overpowers the stage with brassy sexuality, but she’s most concerned with relaying her issues and emotions “as honestly and vulnerably as possible.” “It’s not party music,” she says, though “I’m not the kind of girl who should run for mayor.” Hart connected with Bonamassa in 2011 for three albums and a Grammy nomination in 2013. That collaboration is ongoing, she says, but “I don’t consider myself a blues artist. It’s blues, jazz, soul, gospel, singer/songwriter, and rockin’- heavy-roll.”

Dirty Cello, a local band that generates pure excitement, was started by cellist Rebecca Roudman and guitarist Jason Eckl, eight years ago. Dirty Cello has toured the Middle East, Iceland, and China. In the latter, their music had to be submitted to censors looking for subversion, even though it was all-instrumental. Singing wasn’t allowed. The ever-vigilant Chinese changed the band’s name to Rock & Roll Cello. An International Women’s Day show on Mar. 7 at Hopmonk Sebastopol will benefit The Living Room, a Sonoma County day-care center serving homeless and at-risk women and their children.

Valentine’s Day is about love and sex, in whichever order you prefer. On Feb. 14, Valentine’s Day, Hopmonk Sebastopol will present Whole Lotta Love, a burlesque Valentine to Led Zeppelin. Strippers and pole dancers will be performing to Zep recordings. An emcee will provide humor and sing the title song. The fun and excitement will be organized by the ShowGirl Temple, whose creator and high priestess is Eva D’Luscious, a self-avowed dance, holistic living, and fitness nerd. It’s her stage name she says during our phone call from her current home, Portland.
