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.

Steve Froberg grew up in East Petaluma, where he delivered newspapers as a fourth-grader on his bicycle. He traversed bike tracks in fields and swam in creeks, many of which are gone now. His dad was a law enforcement/military man for 45 years. Steve grew up with three older sisters, and had several girlfriends over those years. Steve officially came out as a female two years ago, then legally changed his name to Emily Rose Froberg six months later. Emily is very open in talking about her situation.
