Featured Musical Performances 
The Jinxes are a folk pop duo from Monterey Bay, comprised of Kevin Smithand Deanna Ross. They have just released a new EP entitled We Createwhich, in fact, was created partially through crowd funding. While I may occasionally grow cynical at such ventures funded with the aide of sites like Kickstarter, We Create is a perfect testament of what can be accomplished with the right sort. The EP is exactly what its title suggests: a charming, unassuming collection of homespun recordings by a couple with a chemistry unmistakable.
