The fires in the North Bay may be contained, but life is hardly back to normal. On the Do List this week, Tomas Riley, former Executive Director for Counterpulse in San Francisco, joins me to talk about fundraisers for fire survivors and ways people can visit and support Sonoma and Napa County artists. Plus we discuss art and politics as the Mariinsky Orchestra barnstorms the Bay Area, a pair of dance festivals and a punk fest featuring women and trans bandleaders. We hope you like the show.
