Statement as of 4:30 PM PST on December 08, 2013
a record low temperature of 24 degrees was set at Eureka CA today. This breaks the old record of 25 degrees set in 1972.
to 9 am PST Monday…A hard freeze warning remains in effect from 10 PM this evening
to 9 am PST Monday.
* Low temperatures… 20 to 30.
* Locations include… coastal Humboldt… coastal del norte… and
coastal Mendocino counties… including the cities of
Fortuna… Eureka… Arcata… Crescent City… and Fort Bragg.
Dress appropriately to protect from frost bite and hypothermia.
Unprotected water pipes should remain covered or faucets allowed
Be extra careful walking or driving due to any ice that may form.
A hard freeze warning means temperatures below freezing are
expected across a large area.
EMERGENCY- Freezing weather and people with no shelter.
Cold weather, especially over an extended period of time, takes a heavy toll on the health and well-being of the most vulnerable members in our community.
Recently, a small household in Eureka, made its garage available as a safe sleeping space for people with no shelter. The household and a group of friends (many PEOPLE PROJECT folks) organized the space in response to the dangerous weather and police conditions on the street. It was actually quite simple. Prior to opening the safe sleeping space, we discussed how we thought it would work best. One of the things decided beforehand was that we would make the space available for 11 nights (December 21-31), and would be explicit about that time frame, so that people sleeping there could depend on a stable schedule.
At this time, opening your home or some covered space is imperative. We were so grateful for the garage, and all went well. Being only a temporary situation, we are reaching out to you, asking you to open your garage, yard, or big room for whatever time you decide is possible. We imagine a rotating emergency sleeping space.
We have found that when a community cooperates and shares in the protection of its most vulnerable members, the result is a vital sense of security experienced by all.
The people who recently shared their garage and those of us who supported and helped coordinate that emergency shelter space are available to talk with you about our experiences. We are eager to assist you in many ways if you are able to open up a sleeping space.
Ways we can assist you include: collecting floor padding, blankets, sleepware, and other necessary warm things (the garage just used had a cement floor); driving folks who need a ride to and from the space; and being present in the sleeping space overnight. The volunteer-run PARC (Peoples’ Action for Rights and Community) in Old Town Eureka fully supports the creation of temporary or permanent dignified community sleeping spaces. PARC is available, for any set-up you may provide, as a phone contact, a donation drop-off, and a dedicated resource for people offering or utilizing a safe shelter.
Please Call PARC: (707) 442-7465
People can and do freeze to death in cold or wet or windy weather.. here we have all three at once. And the police continue to harass people and ruin their gear in the rain and cold. Please call and/or email if you want to talk about opening a space up yourself. It is freezing at night, and we can make a way through these hard times together.
Please Call PARC: (707) 442-7465 The following are the guidelines that were posted on the inside of the garage. You may have some different ideas for your place. We believe that emphasizing honor, dignity, and relationship makes for a truly “safe space.”
\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ WELCOME ///////////////////////////
This is a hate-free space. that means… NO racism, sexism, homophobia, etc * please no physical or verbal violence * smaller room is for women only * bigger room is for all
To protect this safe sleeping space… – no drinking alcohol or doing drugs (including pot) here – use lights, not candles – every night, come through front house door when you first arrive; then use the front gate to go in/out. – use bathroom in the house (walk in back door, then to right) – quiet after 9pm, and during cigarette breaks
You are welcome to sleep here… – every night through the night of Dec 31st. – Please come in no earlier than 6pm and no later than 10:30pm -mornings, out by 9am please
Please do not leave your belongings here, as no-one is here to protect them
Please communicate theses guide-lines with newcomers
If you need anything, please feel free to ask.

I started off the summer wanting to upgrade my simple street music rig to be amplified, battery powered and portable, since I don’t have a car. I wanted to switch to all amplified acoustic even on the streets since I had migrated to playing lots of club gigs in an amplified context, and I just wanted to do the same show on the street that I did in the clubs onstage. So I started searching for solutions.
At the time I was just carrying my simple acoustic rig, a guitar, a tuner and a bucket to sit on.
My first try was to use an old Roland Microcube that I had picked up at a pawn shop back in 2008. I first started using the microcube out in the Plaza here last spring, and in a few of the other Old Town acoustic sweet spots. (Old Town Eureka is blessed with a few GREAT acoustic music venues. I think its to do with the old buildings reflecting sound somehow, and perhaps just the right scale but I speculate.)
Well it is plain the the Roland is underpowered for the task of producing amplified vocal/guitar mixes outdoors. Not that it isn’t loud enough, it is. It really is a remarkable little amp. Great if you are busking playing lead riffs because distortion is distortion right? So you can crank these little amps but when you do vocals and acoustic guitars start to become distorted, shrill and thin. Its partly because of the tiny 6 in speaker, but its also just 3 watts of power.
With these little amps there are a few things you can do though, and you can make your sound pretty decent.
First of all, use a mixer or preamp in front of the Microcube. If you dial in just enough preamp to push the little Roland a little harder from the front end, you can get a much louder and less distorted sound out of it. I would say if you are a singer/guitarist a mixer of some kind is essential to overcome the mic/instrument impedence differential. That’s where the problem lies because it is hard to find a battery powered mixer that will work. Rolls makes one for about $75. Behringer makes one (1002b) but it has 5 mic inputs it is too big really for most busking applications and it costs about $125. What made this possible to work for me was the Zoom A3 that I have reviewed here because it is essentially a two channel mic/guitar mixer with effects that is battery powered. So I use the Zoom for a preamp pushed into the microcube and the sound is much improved.
Then the other thing you can do, and this is true of other small low power small speaker amps is that you can find a feature of the outdoor environment and use it for a horn. For instance I often use the inside corner of a wall or some buildings and aim the little Roland backwards (away from the audience) and angled upwards towards the sky and building corners, to get the music in the air. The stone or brick corner “horn” seems to add sympathetic bass to the content, and smooths out the harshness of the little speakers. Listeners have the sensation of hearing your acoustic voice and guitar followed quite quickly by an echo from the horn, a little distorted still because it is still a tiny speaker, but people seem to process distortion differently in echoes than in direct sound. It is almost as if we humans expect a little distortion in echoes. People seem to find it a pleasant effecd, it is almost magic. So give it a try. Roland cubes, don’t forget the Peavey Solo it is 10 watts battery powered you can find them used for about 50 bucks.
Then there are a few battery PAs that you can use. They are much more powerful than the Roland, I use the AN Mini which cost about 180 dollars US. Now it doesn’t have any effects, but it is a real 30 watt amp and it runs on 10 AA batteries, and I use rechargeables. Since I use the Zoom A3 with the AN Mini as well all the effects I need are in the pedal. This is actually a pretty powerful rig and very portable. But since the speaker here is also small, it is best to use these PAs the same way as the cube, that is aimed back and upwards towards a stone corner.
Roland makes a couple of battery PAs but both of them are overpriced and underpowered. Roland makes great products but this line needs to be updated they have not kept pace with tech on battery powered gear. The whole C ube line is underpowered now and out of date.
If you google for “battery pa” or “portable pa” you can find a few other options of small battery pas. Samson makes one, And there are a few that are very expensive.
mipro ma100 or ma10
Samson xp40i 40 watt battery pa
alesis transactive 25 w are a few more that I have found but I haven’t tried them.
Although I had found some workable solutions to my quest to be battery powered on the street I wanted to give the best show possible so I obtained a Crate TX50D which is a battery powered 50 watt acoustic amp. It sounds great, and I will give a full review soon. If you are serious about playing on the street and you have $400 to spend, and you don’t want to mess with building your own rig as described below, then this is the way to go. The Crate is the rig that many pro buskers and world traveling musicians use. Its simple, you use it then plug it in to charge it. You don’t need a mixer or a zoom pedal, it has a mic channel (xlr and 1/4 jacks) and a guitar channel. It feels like a real 50 watt amp, you can feel your guitar and vocals “hit the back of the room” so to speak. I have gigged all summer with a 30 watt amp in a club and its plenty loud with a mixer or Zoom pedal pushing it, so this 50 watt Crate with 10″ woofer sounds pretty good. And with the Crate there is no need for mixer, preamp or pedal. It just remains to be seen how durable the amp and battery pak will be.
Once I had decided to produce the absolutely best sound I could do, then I pursued a dual strategy. I would buy a Crate or something equivalent (I would find the best available off the shelf solution) and I would also try to build a 12 volt battery powered system in parallel. Well after some research I bought the Crate. It is really the best solution I have in off the shelf gear for portable battery busking or playing. The little Roland acoustic amps cozt the same as the Crate but they are no where near as powerful The Roland is really a 2 x 15 watt stereo amp, not really :30 watts” as it is advertised. The Street Cube has the same problem All the other amp companies who make battery amps make tiny amps, the Peavey solo is the most powerful at 10 watts (15 when AC powered) with the exeption of Traynor, who seems to make a 40 watt battery amp but its hard to find. [ed traynor tvm50 ]
Now on to 12 volt systems. Yes you can do it and its pretty simple. As a matter of fact I know peeps have figured this out down in LA because this fall when I was out playing in Eureka Old Town with my battery rig I ran into a beautiful young woman from LA who had her own hand built 12 volt battery street rig, and we had the same components that I had assembled. She had a wonderful voice, she was up here visiting her uncle and scouting locations for a music video shoot.
Here’s what you need. You need a 12 volt deep cycle battery. Its the deep cycle that’s important, regular auto and truck batteries are not well suited for this task. The good news is that these deep cycle batteries don’t cost so much. I am using a 35 AH deep cycle battery for my first (proof of concept) rig and it cost me $65 US. These kinds of batteries are widely used now in wheelchairs, electric carts and solar arrays so they are plentiful. I am not sure right now how big a battery I need. I want to be able for myself to play 3 hour shows and then be able to reliably recharge my battery within the 24 hour cycle. So my 35 AH (AH stands for Amp Hours, a measure of the storage capacity of the battery) may be too big. I am going to test a smaller battery in my next rig. But the key is the 35 AH works fine. Look for the newer tech like AGM or gel-cel batteries because they are seale, maintenance free and you can charge them indoors.
You need an inverter. You will be looking (in the US) for a 12v DC to 120 V AC inverter. You will want one with two AC outlets. For my rig I wanted to get the best sound possible, so I decided on a pure sine wave inverter. There are several kinds of inverters, the cheapest put out square waves, then there are modified sine wave inverters and pure sine wave inverters. I bought a 600 watt pure sine inverter for about 150 dollars US. Here again I may have overdone it. I wanted to get it right on the first shot, and I did. It sounds great. Now for my next test rig again I will go a bit smaller. Maybe a 400 watt modified sine inverter I think I can find for less than 50 bucks. I think that maybe bigger inverter = more audio headroom but I could be wrong about this. I an on a learning curve for sure. The problem with cheap square wave inverters is that they can produce 60 cycle hum into your music. But its not a given. If you are assembling one of these rigs and you have a cheap inverter give it a try, it may work without excessive hum if you are lucky.
You will need a charger. Find a smart charger, your batteries will last a lot longer. Find one for less than 50 bucks.
You need a small amp that you will simply plug into the inverter. If it is an acoustic amp or keyboard amp or small pa with low impedance mic input(s) you are good to go. If you are using a small bass amp or guitar amp (I like bass amps better for this usually) then you will need to use a mixer or Zoom A3. If you use a mixer you will mostly likely need to power it (since as I pointed out above battery mixers are not common) hence the usefulness of the 2nd AC outlet on the inverter. Happily most inverters in this class do have two outlets, its a detail though.
I like bass amps better because they are usually simpler and not full of effects that I don’t need (and do have to pay for.) When you use a bass amp or guitar amp for vocals you usually have to roll off the bass and push the midrange a bit. But that makes the guitar sound a bit thin so you have to adjust the guitar too. But you can do it. Of course I have EQ on the zoom pedal or mixer as well. I am just saying that a bass or guitar amp is doable for this kind of act either on the street or in a small club if you use a small mixer and take the time to dial your sound in. I want to sound as good on the street as I do in the clubs.
So 12volt deep cycle battery + inverter + mixer + amp and you have a workable street rig.
Mine cost $65 for the battery, $150 for the inverter, and $60 for an old Peavey keyboard amp. I don’t need the zoom pedal or mixer. So this rig is loud, clear, portable battery operated, and Toss in $25 for a pawn shop mic and stand and I roll for under $300. And its modular. If something breaks its replaceable off the shelf.
I bought a hand cart from Ace Hardware on sale for $15 and I bungee my rig to it and I roll.
For my next test rig I will go to a smaller battery and a less expensive inverter, and I will see how it sounds. I will use the same mics and amp. I may be able to shave $100 or more of the cost of the street rig.
Its true that some of these rig options will require a small mixer. This week I bought a used alesis for 25 bucks which works or you can go up to things like the Zoom A3 which is $200 (but worth if if you can afford it). If you must go really cheap without a mixer be patient and find the right keyboard amp. You won’t need the mixer.
You can do it too.
Remember get your music up into the air. Music lives in the air and dies on the ground.
have a peaceful day,

When I came here to Eureka in late 2006 I was on a mission to do politics and to play music.
One of my musical goals was to take music – my music – to the streets. I think that music is best when it is a shared live experience. Not that other modes of music can’t be valid or enjoyable.
So I spent a few years sitting on the street corners and sidewalks and abandoned loading docks homeless squats and camps playing my guitar and singing. Also the first few years I spent a lot of time in nice weather out on the Eureka Boardwalk, which basically is a big huge abandoned outdoor space. There are almost always some hardy strollers and I hope there will be more. Its a great stroll on a nice day. But here’s the basics of playing music on the streets, from my real life experience. Granted this is a small city, not the big city, and no doubt bigger cities have bigger challenges. But this info will get you started.
First of all you need a street guitar. When I first got here I was determined to play on the street but I had only one guitar. My guitar was a nice Ibanez (less than a year old) acoustic electric. Of course out on the Boardwalk and down by the Free Meal on 3rd st. a guitar like this stood out and I feared it getting jacked or just simply damaged. Even though this is no Martin, its about a 400 dollar guitar …..still, if you want to put on a good street performance you don’t want to be worrying about your guitar. This dilemma actually kept me from playing out for a few weeks in spring 2007 and I was very depressed. I solved the problem by buying a $65 Johnson dreadnaught beater from the no longer there pawn shop on F St.
Well within 6 months I had played the Johnson to pieces but it got me into that autumn and by then I had the concept of “street guitar” down. I found a succession of $100 guitars at Humboldt Bay Traders on 5th st, including a couple of old Yamahas and a Crafter (also $100) that I ended up using for 4 years as my street guitar. You gotta have a street guitar.
You can find a decent sounding and good playing street guitar for $100 if you really want one. Find one or two or three of the best used guitar selections in your area, might be a pawn shop or music store. Some thrift stores occasionally have guitars as well as garage sales. If you are serious about finding a guitar keep an eye on these places too, as well as craigslist. You are looking for a durable, full acoustic (not acoustic electric) guitar, preferably with a gig bag, or hardshell case. Well that is unless you are playing all amplified street music like me now, but most of you aren’t. So keep it simple, unless you need a guitar with a pickup, don’t use one.
You have to visit every guitar store and pawn shop, play every guitar that interests you. Visit every store once a week. Tell the employees that you are looking for a beater guitar that plays and sounds good. Be patient. You will find one. After you find one, keep looking, you will find another from time to time. You will find a supply of guitars that you will be comfortable playing on the street.
You need a tuner. When I hit Eureka I was so old school that my tuner was an A 440 tuning fork that I still had from back in the day. But really. A tuning fork, a pitch pipe. Something low tech for the street is good. A head stock tuner is most practical if you can afford one (prob 5 or 10 bucks at a pawn shop if you are patient or 20 to 30 for a new one.) A tuner is a must, especially if you are a singer too. I learned from a Danny Gatton video (of beer bottle slide guitar fame) that the dial tone on a phone is approx. F# and I think I actually verified it once. Please feel free to comment on this post.
Although many street musicians prefer to stand, I am getting on in years so I sit, so if you are like me you need something to sit on. The cities where we play are not always accommodative of our art, to say the least. I solved that problem for myself with a five gallon bucket salvaged from the dump. It is light, so light that if there is nothing in it I can sling it over the neck of my gig bagged guitar slung on my back and I travel hands free. If I have some weight in the bucket, I carry it by hand. But at destination it serves as my seat, where it is both lighter and more stable than conventional folding stools. Plus of course, it was free salvage, adds to its charm.
Depending on your climate I suggest you have also some kind of head covering almost always. To stay warm when its cool and avoid sunburn in high summer or high noon. And if you are in a colder/damper/cooler climate/season you will need some knit gloves with cut off fingers. These keep your hands warm while allowing you to fret and pick your guitar. It will expand your windows of playing opportunities by several degrees. Go to the dollar store and get some one dollar knit gloves. Snip them off they work just fine.
@ the works, amplified acoustic-eclectic. This will be Electric Bill, big keyboard amp. Lets have fun.
come to the works for arts alive.
buy my cd “Two Smooth Stones Solstice Sessions” its for sale @ the Works along with a bunch of other local artist cds! Solstice Sessions was recorded here in Eureka with my friend Jimmy Mandich in 2009. I am working on a new song collection now.
have a peaceful day,

RE: Harassment By Eureka Sergeant Rodrigo Reyna-Sanchez
Open Letter To Eureka Police Chief Mills,
It has come to our attention that on or about Wednesday, November 27, 2013- one day before Thanksgiving- Mr. Shannon Hodgdson was unfairly targeted and told to “get out of town” by Eureka Police Sergeant Rodrigo Reyna-Sanchez. Mr. Hodgdson was on the corner of V and 5th Streets in Eureka, holding a sign (asking for help), which is constitutionally protected activity.1 Officer Sanchez drove up in his patrol car and told Mr. Hodgdson that he better get off that corner and he’d better get out of town. This is wholly inappropriate behavior. The intended and actual intimidation and the inherent threat in Officer Sanchez’ actions is not only unprofessional, inappropriate, and unethical, it is also unlawful. Officer Sanchez violates a person’s civil rights by seriously discouraging their exercise of Constitutional rights. The blatant and serious discouragement of Mr. Hodgdson’s exercise of his rights by Officer Sanchez, or any officer, must cease. Mr. Hodgdson was not breaking any laws or blocking any passage, nor was his first amendment expression triggering any lawful restrictions by the government. As you must know, the government is prohibited from controlling or restricting the content of a person’s speech, except in very rare instances, and cannot impede a person’s right to travel or simply exist in a public space. This was not a rare instance wherein government may restrict a person’s expression, and Officer Sanchez has no authority to “order” or intimidate Mr. Hodgdson “out of town.” While Mr. Hodgdson was behaving lawfully, Officer Sanchez was not.
Mr. Hodgdson observed another Eureka Officer in the vehicle, who did nothing to stop Officer Sanchez from threatening Mr. Hodgdson and chilling the exercise of his rights. While we are disappointed that another Eureka police officer would not fulfill his mandate to stop misconduct and/or civil rights violations by another officer in his presence, we are not surprised. The Eureka Police Department (EPD) has a history of covering up, and even encouraging, disregard for peoples’ rights, abuse and crimes against vulnerable people with little means to challenge them, routine civil rights violations, cruelty, and gratuitous physical and verbal violence by its officers. Officer Sanchez is one of the primary perpetrators of such depravity and violative behavior against the people of Eureka. If the other officer, a complicit witness to Officer Sanchez’ unlawful actions, had been you, we would hope that you’d have intervened on behalf of Mr. Hodgdson’s civil rights.
Unfortunately, threatening a person who is simply holding a non-commercial sign on public property is a common practice of Officer Sanchez. We ask that you hold this officer accountable by, at a minimum, commanding him to stop such abusive behavior.
We are seriously concerned for Mr. Hodgdson’s safety, given the inherent threat made by Officer Sanchez against him and Mr. Hodgdson’s vulnerability as a houseless Eureka resident. Officer Sanchez should be admonished from telling anyone that they must leave town, something that we know he has also told other people. Evidently, Officer Sanchez believes that he has the authority to tell people that they are “better off dead,” that “no one will miss you if I shoot you in the back of the head” (true quotes), and that they cannot be on public property. This abusive conduct by Sanchez is often witnessed and even emulated by the officers around him. Throughout our years of observing Officer Sanchez and documenting hundreds of experiences by members of the public involving this officer, we understand that he not only feels emboldened to intimidate and hurt people, but he seeks applause and glorification for his bullying behavior. By any civilized standard of decency and community protection, Officer Sanchez’ attitude and record of abuse should be, at a minimum, grounds for his removal from the EPD and for a ban on him owning or carrying weapons.
We do not want Mr. Hodgdson harmed or again threatened by Sanchez. This letter should serve as an heads-up in the event that Mr. Hodgdson disappears, is arrested on dubious charges, or is found seriously injured, we will have every reason to suspect Officer Sanchez (or someone acting on behalf of him, EPD, or other local “law enforcement.”) That being said, we much prefer that you (and each entity to which this letter is going) protect Mr. Hodgdson and all similarly situated residents against any further abuse, threats, and/or violence from Officer Sanchez and other EPD officers. Mr. Hodgdson does not intend to leave town and should not be intimidated from exercising his basic constitutional rights.
Please be sure that your officers know that retaliation for this letter (or any other complaint) is not only illegal, but also unacceptable in your department.
Given that this county’s poverty level is highest in the state, we hope that you begin your tenure as Chief of Police making clear to your officers that harassing poor people is unacceptable on your watch.
