TAHOE ADVENTURE FILM FESTIVAL ROAD TOUR 2018
“I see the kayakers on film and I go, ‘That’s ridiculous!’ But then the kayakers see climbing footage and they go, ‘That’s out of control!’ and then everybody sees the skiers and they go, “THAT’S CRAZY!’” So enthuses professional adventure climber Alex Honnold, describing Lake Tahoe’s annual Tahoe Adventure Film Festival, a night of extreme filmmaking, DJs, dancers, and high-energy onstage antics. The festival was held in December in Tahoe, but this touring version of the show comes to Petaluma for one night only this weekend. This leg of the tour is sponsored by the Rock and Ice Mountain Club. 7:30 p.m. $14. Mystic Theater, 21 N. Petaluma Blvd. MysticTheatre.com.
SUNHUNTER AND CHARLEY PEACH
In SunHunter’s star-making video for the song “Echo,” singer-songwriter Tomas Dessle exorcises his romantic demons in a romantic gesture that combines photographs and memories, rock-climbing, stick-sculpting and a bit of poetic pyromania, all in illustration of a song that captures the pain of a breakup and the hopes a better life once the pain recedes. The alternative rock band from Marin has a slew of such songs – tuneful, catchy, emotional, sometimes bouncy and sometime haunting. Catch SunHunter live at the Phoenix, with fast-rising, hard-driving, ethereal-rock band Charley Peach, plus The Tahoes, Silas Fermoy and Mosaics. 8 p.m. show. $8. 201 Washington St. ThePhoenixTheater.com.

She performs Sunday with Harmonic Law at the Big Easy, 128 American Alley. 7:30 show. No cover. BigEasyPetaluma.com.
