Insight: Death Valley Racer / Deborah Davis / Vagabond Opera / Sound Advice: Off Air


Death Valley Racer Elk Grove man Scott Brown is preparing to ride in a 508-mile bicycle race across Death Valley next month, and he hopes to do it in less than 48 hours.
 
Deborah Davis Author Deborah Davis will be speaking at the Crocker Art Museum on Saturday about her book "Strapless: John Singer Sargent and the Fall of Madame X." "Strapless" is the story behind one of the most infamous paintings in art history "Madame X." That particular painting is on view at the Metropolitan Museum in New York, but two of Sargent's paintings are on display at the Crocker Art Museum as part of the "Summer of Impressionism" exhibit.  
 
Vagabond Opera The surrealist Portland, Oregon troupe, Vagabond Opera, tucks the high drama of opera into the tight squeeze of a sexy cabaret. Sinister and seedy yet sweet and nostalgic, the sultry band mashes up Eastern European folk theater and classical grandeur.  They'll be performing in our studio ahead of their performance in Nevada City this Friday.   Their newest CD "Sing for Your Lives!" was released earlier this month.
