Slash with Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators Tue. Sept. 11 | Slash’s virtuso guitar playing was one of the pillars of Guns & Roses’ appeal and have left subsequent projects with a Guns and Rosey echo, but he’s spent as much time memorializing himself: star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, biography, cartoon appearance with Phineas and Ferb, and apps featuring reproductions of his amp settings. Foxy Shazam and The Campaign 1984 open at House of Blues. PAGE 49.

The Zeitgeist Chronicles Thu.-Sat. Sept. 13-29 | Stephen Montagne’s new play examines the 2008 election of President Barack Obama from diverse points of view, including Hurricane Katrina survivors, reporters, a Mormon comic and others. At Dillard University. PAGE 65.

Stomp Fri.-Sun. Sept 14-16 | The Broadway hit features a troupe of eight performers seizing everything from lighters to brooms to trash cans to new instruments to unleash a fury of percussion and dance. At the Mahalia Jackson Theater. PAGE 65. Juvenile with Mystikal Fri. Sept. 14 | It’s hard to believe it took Terius Gray 10 albums to come up with the title Rejuvenation. The June album reunites Juve with Cash Money CPA Mannie Fresh. This “Legends of the Game” revue also features onetime frenemies Mystikal, U.N.L.V., Big Mike and Houston’s Geto Boys. At the Howlin’ Wolf. PAGE 49.

Amanda Palmer | The former Dresden Doll goes stadium-

sized glam with her outfit The Grand Theft Orchestra on her latest album Theatre is Evil. Sparing no expense for her theatrical stage shows, Palmer is crowdsourcing audiences (and performers) for a fittingly huge accompanying tour — she says costumes are definitely encouraged. At Tipitina’s. PAGE 49.

Kristin Diable Sat. Sept. 15 | Could this be the longawaited breakout for New Orleans singer/ songwriter Kristin Diable? “Lines in the Road,” a Stevie Nicks-ish cut off Kristin Diable & the City, scored a July episode of HBO’s True Blood. Snoop Dogg loves Sookie Stackhouse; Sookie Stackhouse loves Kristin Diable. You do the math. Denton Hatcher and The Scorseses open at One Eyed Jacks. PAGE 49.

Second Harvest Food Bank

of Greater New Orleans and Acadiana swung into action in the aftermath of Hurricane Isaac. The agency was ready with 22 truckloads of food, water, canned goods, baby supplies and relief packs for the 23 parishes it serves and began mobile distribution of goods Sept. 2. Second Harvest says it’s now planning for long-range efforts in particularly hard-hit areas of south Louisiana.

Facing criticism for a ‘war on live music’ as music venues closed, City Hall responds with a guide — if you can get past zoning. By Alex Woodward

Y

ou’re a bar with a few microphones and an amplifier. You have a permit to serve booze. You put a band or two on the stage several times a week. You charge $5 at the door and make a few bucks after the bands get their cuts. You advertise; you book flavor-of-the-month touring bands. You do this for years. You’re packed. One night, an officer from the city’s Department of Revenue asks for your live entertainment permit. You don’t have one. The city asks you to unplug the music. And New Orleans music lovers challenge the city for starting a “war on music.” This happened, almost exactly, to Dave Clements, co-owner of Circle Bar, the Lee Circle dive bar with an almost-nightly music lineup. Clements admitted he didn’t have a permit, at least not since before Hurricane Katrina. A week later, the bands were back on. Clements acquired a mayoralty permit for live entertainment and proudly marched out of City Hall with it in hand. But he had to pay for every year he operated without the permit. “One of the most important things to get across is that it is a process, and it’s not a new process,” says Scott Hutcheson, Mayor Mitch Landrieu’s cultural economy advisor who acts as a liaison between the city and arts communities. “There has been

no change, no new law enacted that limits any type of music or live Siberia has a permit entertainment in the city. But what to serve alcohol, but the bar canceled its often happens is — because it is a live music shows ... bureaucratic process involving a couple different departments — the until permitting path is not always as clear for some issues are resolved. PHOTO BY CHERYL GERBER constituents as it is others.” Hutcheson also says the city has not declared “war on music.” “‘Can you do what you do where you want to do it?’ That’s basically the gist of it,” he says. Circle Bar pulled its plug just weeks after Siberia, the St. Claude Avenue punk dive, did the same. Though Circle Bar ultimately got its permit renewed, Siberia canceled its extensive live music schedule and is still waiting for permit approval. Siberia never had a permit and operated under the assumption it could get one; its immediate neighbors include Hi-Ho Lounge, AllWays Lounge and Kajun’s Pub, all of which feature music, theater page 11

c’est Do you feel the City of New Orleans prepared adequately for Tropical Storm/ Hurricane Isaac?

Michael “Brownie” Brown,

the bumbling head of FEMA during Hurricane Katrina turned Denver radio talk show host, grumbled about “mainstream media bias” when power was still out across New Orleans after Hurricane Isaac. “Where’s Soledad O’Brien, CNN, et al? Just curious,” he wrote on Twitter. In fact, CNN had been all over the power situation — and O’Brien had been stationed in Plaquemines Parish, reporting on Isaac’s worst. Let’s all say it together: Heckuva job …

and other live entertainment. But it turned out Siberia is not zoned for live entertainment. Bullet’s Sports Bar in the 7th Ward, which hosts a weekly Kermit Ruffins gig, also was denied a live entertainment permit. In a draft of its Permits and Licenses for Cultural Businesses: A Basic Guide, City Hall says its first step in reviewing a request for a permit is to check a business’ zoning: “Introducing a new use, like Live Entertainment, to your existing business without checking the zoning or obtaining the needed zoning adjustments and permits is not recommended as a way to deal with zoning restrictions,” the guide says. Zoning is the bible when it comes to live entertainment. Zoning laws determine what kinds of businesses can open shop, as dictated by ordinances that parcel land into different usage categories. According to city ordinances, “live entertainment” — or rather what essentially is a concert — also includes “theatrical productions, athletic contests, exhibitions, pageants, concerts, recitals, circuses, karaoke, bands, combos, and other live music performances, audience-participation contests, floor shows, literature readings, dancing, fashion shows, comedy or magic acts, mime and the playing of recorded music (discs, records, tapes, etc.) by an employee, guest or other individual, one of whose functions is the playing of recorded music and who is in verbal communication with the clientele of the establishment.” “We look at what the zoning is, we look at the zoning ordinance to see if that use is permitted, whether it’s accessory or conditional, and we tell (businesses) whether it is or not,” says Edward Horan, zoning administrator with the Office of Safety and Permits. “You’re a bar, I’ll be able to look that up pretty quickly and let you know if [live music is] allowed. It’s frankly not allowed in many places.” Enter the City Planning Commission (CPC), which handles applications for a “non-conforming use” which ultimately must pass muster with the New Orleans City Council. The bar requests must pass the CPC, which may deny the request for a hearing, and the New Orleans City Council, which can do the same.

The city’s “one-stop shop” online system for permit applications citywide is scheduled to be unveiled this fall. Hutcheson said it aims to make the permit process “less daunting” and increase accessibility. “We recognize the cultural aspects of the city drive our tourism market, they drive our quality of life,” he said. “The mayor has made it a priority (to encourage) information and policy around cultural businesses.” Hutcheson’s office can be reached at (504) 658-4200. Horan can be reached at (504) 658-7125.

So you’re a bar with a few microphones and an amplifier. You successfully convinced the CPC and City Council to allow live music. Where do you start? If you already have an alcoholic beverage permit, you’ll remember the Department of Finance’s Bureau of Revenue and the sales tax division, which processes all occupational licenses (that piece of paper in your window or above the cash register which basically says what you do in your building). You apply for a mayoralty permit for live entertainment, and the Department of Revenue forwards that request to the Office of Safety and Permits “for their inspection and to give us information on whether it’s a permitted use or not. Our decision is based on whether it’s permitted use,” says Romy Samuel, director of the Department of Revenue. “Sometimes it’s helpful if they come to me even before they go to revenue and apply, so you know if what you’re applying for is even possible,” Horan says. “That’s what we do all day.” What you pay depends on how much revenue you make annually. Big, high-volume spaces pay up to $500.25 for a permit. Smaller businesses can expect to pay $150.25. “We want you to be in compliance. We respect our businesses. We want them to continue,” Samuel says. “The resolution, however long that might take, we just want you to be in compliance. “Just because you follow the process doesn’t mean the answer at the end of the day is going to be ‘yes.’”

City CounCil says development Can’t be higher than 50 feet developer Sean Cummings will be allowed to build his proposed elisio lofts residential/retail project at 501 elysian Fields Ave., near the riverfront — but it will be scaled down significantly, due to a City Council vote last week. Following the recommendation of district C Councilwoman Kristin Gisleson Palmer, in whose district the mixed-use project will be built, council members voted unanimously sept. 6 to limit the height of the structure to a maximum of 50 feet. it originally was designed to top out at 74 feet. elisio lofts drew fierce criticism from the Faubourg Marigny improvement Association (FMiA), whose primary objection was the height — 24 feet above what the district’s zoning allows — but the project was overwhelmingly approved by the City Planning Commission (CPC). in its accompanying report, the CPC cited the 2005 riverfront vision Plan’s recommendation that certain major roads, including elysian Fields Avenue, could accommodate increased height maximums. The riverfront vision Plan has been incorporated into the current redraft of the city’s Comprehensive Zoning ordinance (CZo), but, as FMiA members have repeatedly pointed out, a new CZo has yet to be adopted into city ordinance. “i’m not comfortable with approving a project that would create a precedent for 75 feet,” Palmer said, criticizing the CPC for prematurely adopting the riverfront vision Plan’s height recommendation as a guideline. “Until we get a handle on [zoning] enforcement … we have to rebuild trust (with neighbors),” Palmer said. “we’re still in that process.” — CHArles MAldonAdo

Hold Entergy Accountable

Gambit > bestofneworleans.com > september 11 > 2012

s we began to write this commentary (a week after Hurricane Isaac made landfall) the lights went out all over the city — again — for tens of thousands right at rush hour, from the CBD to parts of Uptown, Mid-City and City Park. It took more than six hours for Entergy New Orleans (ENO) to restore power. A substation near the Superdome blew, according to a hasty ENO message. The company said the outage was not Isaac-related. The City Park outage, ENO insisted, was part of a preplanned shutoff, a post-Isaac “fix” to the grid. If that’s true, ENO should have warned customers in advance. Actually, it would have been nice had ENO told customers anything last week. In the wake of a storm that, for once, saw government do its job well, ENO stands out as the one entity that totally fell down on the job. CEO Charles Rice made the rounds of radio and TV stations but had little to say other than the company was working long days with extra crews and forecasting percentages of customers who could expect to get service restored.

14

When it came to specifics — namely, neighborhoods — Rice fell short, except to say he thought ENO was doing as good a job as possible given the circumstances. “I’m not saying that we’re perfect,” Rice told a meeting of the New Orleans City Council’s Utility Committee, which met Sept. 4 after council members heard howls from constituents all weekend. Not perfect? That’s for sure. The same day Rice appeared before the council, ENO sent an email saying power in Lakeview would have to be shut down, followed quickly by another email saying the first one was in error. New Orleanians weren’t looking for perfection. They were waiting for communication. Compared to other agencies — governmental and otherwise — ENO’s performance was the one big blot on disaster response following Isaac. Both Mayor Mitch Landrieu and Gov. Bobby Jindal held frequent news conferences, answered specific questions and promoted a sense that things were under control. New Orleans Police Chief Ronal Serpas likewise held NOPD together, marking a

high point in his tenure as chief. Most of the relatively few looters were quickly caught, and the city saw a nine-day stretch without a single murder. NOLAReady, the city’s official emergency preparedness Twitter account, was a vital clearinghouse of information of all sorts, from outages to downed trees and broken traffic signals. And citizens themselves provided vital information about outages and impassable streets on Facebook and Twitter; social media have become one of the dominant ways of getting information during a disaster or emergency. Unfortunately, some who had signed up for ENO text message alerts were told they were “temporarily unavailable.” Others said they signed up, but got no notices and no texts. After the storm, as much as a week later, Entergy’s online outage maps were consistently incorrect, showing power on in dark neighborhoods and no power in neighborhoods that were fine. That’s beyond “not perfect” — it’s unacceptable for a public utility. No one likes to be told that electricity will be out for any length of time, but during an emergency even bad news is better than no news.

With accurate, timely information, residents can decide whether it’s better to “hunker down” (in a phrase we heard all week) or evacuate. We recognize that restoring a regional electrical grid isn’t easy. In 2008, when Hurricane Gustav knocked out power to the Baton Rouge area, it took weeks to restore power. Some in hard-hit areas like Plaquemines Parish, especially around Boothville-Venice, have been told not to expect electricity for up to three weeks. That’s tough news to bear, but it’s vital for decision-making. At a post-Isaac wrap-up news conference, Landrieu stressed, “Communication is key, especially when it comes to things like electricity.” We agree. The New Orleans City Council last week unanimously resolved to investigate ENO and Entergy Louisiana’s preparation, response and storm recovery efforts. The Louisiana Public Service Commission should do likewise. It’s ironic — and unacceptable — that the monopoly entrusted with maintaining New Orleans’ power grid was the one agency after Hurricane Isaac that was utterly powerless to connect with the public it serves.

politics

If We ain’t Got culcha here’s a legendary story at the state Capitol about a grande dame from New orleans who was lobbying lawmakers in support of funding for cultural institutions. she buttonholed a New orleans legislator who was on his way to a three-martini lunch, and as she launched into her pitch, the flustered lawmaker did his best to cut her off with an awkward promise of support. “You can count on me,” he said, “cuz if ya ain’t got culcha, ya ain’t got shit!” And then he fled, leaving an equally flustered grande dame wondering whether to thank him or scold him. I am reminded of that story every time I get an email from the Louisiana Endowment for the Humanities (LEH) promoting one of its many excellent programs, or when I pick up a copy of LEH’s awardwinning quarterly Louisiana Cultural Vistas. For decades, LEH has made sure that Louisiana recognized, celebrated and, above all, sustained its unique culture. LEH also has provided critical mass to programs designed to lift Louisiana out of America’s intellectual basement. I’m talking about family literacy

programs, professional improvement programs for teachers, programmatic support for local libraries, schools and museums, and more. over the past four decades, LEH has poured $66 million into grants for locally initiated projects, and it has served as the principal source of funding for documentary films in Louisiana. LEH accomplished all that with state funding and private donations. state support peaked at $2 million in 20072008. Today it is zero, thanks mostly to Gov. Bobby Jindal, who, despite his Ivy League and oxford pedigree, apparently fails to recognize the vital role LEH plays in promoting our state’s uniqueness and enriching the lives of its citizens. Jindal has no problem paying his top political appointees fat salaries to kowtow to his ideological agenda, but he has no use for an institution that fosters critical thinking. That’s too bad, because LEH probably delivers more for every state dollar invested in its programs than any other private vendor. Jindal’s cuts hit LEH hard, but they hit

LEH probably delivers more for every state dollar invested in its programs than any other private vendor. Louisiana citizens and more than 600 LEH partner organizations even harder. The agency suspended its entire grant cycle in the current fiscal year. LEH president Michael sartisky calls the impact of the cuts “the litany of losses.” Yet, LEH soldiers on. This week, in celebration of the bicentennial of Louisiana’s statehood, LEH is releasing a beautiful hardcover book tracing the history of art in Louisiana. A Unique Slant of Light: The Bicentennial History of Art in Louisiana includes 276 entries on Louisiana artists and more

than 400 images. The book, commissioned by the Louisiana Bicentennial Commission, represents “proof of our entrepreneurial ability to survive,” sartisky says. LEH officially launches the publication with a party at 6 p.m. Friday, sept. 14, at the ogden Museum of southern Art. The event, like most LEH programs, is free and open to the public. The book sells for $120, but it includes more than just words and pretty pictures. “We’ve aligned the book’s entries with the cutting-edge online digital capabilities of LEH’s KnowLA: The Digital Encyclopedia of Louisiana History and Culture (www.knowla.org), to produce an innovative and lasting record of the state’s artistic heritage that can be explored for free by all citizens,” sartisky notes. These are truly the best of times and the worst of times for LEH and its partner organizations. Hopefully, Jindal and state lawmakers soon will recognize the damage they have done and reverse course on state funding for LEH. If not, we won’t have culcha for long.

New Orleans Know-it-all Questions for Blake: askblake@gambitweekly.com Hey Blake,

I did some research and found that Daniel H. Holmes is buried in Metairie Cemetery. For some reason, however, the name is not on the front of the tomb but on the back. There must be a reason for this. Someone also told me they thought they had read a long time ago that Holmes’ body was removed from the tomb and is now located elsewhere. Any light you can shed on this unusual situation will be appreciated.

attended filled more than 80 carriages and made their way to Metairie and Holmes’ simple family tomb of polished marble and granite, the simplicity of which reflected his life. Hundreds of D.H. Holmes employees joined family and friends as a handful of dirt was thrown on the casket before the marble door of the tomb was closed. The merchant left behind a son and daughter; his wife had died in 1884.

Lisa Lund Dear Lisa, Daniel Henry Holmes, founder of D.H. Holmes department store, was buried in Metairie Cemetery on July 9, 1898. His tomb is located in Section 92, and the name “Holmes” is on the front. Records at Metairie Cemetery show there is no reason to believe his body was removed and reinterred. Several websites report astonishing details of what happened to Holmes after his death, including a suggestion that his body disappeared. A report about Holmes’ death in the Picayune described him as a “patriarchal merchant and model citizen.” He died July 3, 1898, in New York City after being ill for some time. An elaborate Episcopal ceremony was conducted in New York. Holmes — praised by the Picayune as the “Merchant Prince and princely merchant” was laid to rest in his family’s tomb. There was a simple funeral service conducted by the Rev. Albert R. Edbrooke at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, but a vast crowd filled the building. Few of the mourners had known Holmes intimately, or even at all; others had never seen him while he was alive. There was a reason for this. Holmes was a modest man and carefully avoided drawing attention to himself. He never belonged to any political organization, society or club, but loved books and had thorough knowledge of French, Spanish, Greek, Italian and Hebrew. Shortly before his death at age 83, Holmes began studying Sanskrit. Holmes had a home on Bourbon Street, near his Canal Street store, where he lived quietly and avoided public attention. At his funeral, 60 orphans from the Protestant Orphan’s Home on Seventh Street testified to his acts of charity. After a simple service, mourners who

This advertisement from Jewell’s Crescent City, a publication about New Orleans and its citizens, shows D.H. Holmes department store on Canal Street as it appeared in 1873. Born in Clermont County, Ohio, near Point Pleasant on April 28, 1816, Holmes was orphaned at age 2 and lived on a farm until he was 13, when he began his business career with Eugene Levassor in Cincinnati. Holmes came to New Orleans in 1836, worked in a dry goods store on Chartres Street, which he eventually bought, and went into business for himself. In 1849 Holmes moved his store to Canal Street. D.H. Holmes was purchased by Dillard’s in 1989, and in 1995 the Canal Street store became the Chateau Sonesta Hotel. The Sonesta was renamed the Chateau Bourbon in 2008 and this year became the Hyatt French Quarter Hotel.

fairly irrelevant. “Adversity is when your house is flooded and you can’t go home,” he said. “Those are the things in life you are going to find out about yourself. Our guys, over time, have realized that the fans and the people in the area can always bounce back. We live by that. No matter what happens, we know that the community is going to bounce back and we know that the community has our back and we have the community’s back.” A Saints game won’t give us back the sleepless nights without power that were endured following Isaac or rebuild or refurnish a home. That doesn’t mean players don’t understand. “I’m not going to pretend I know what it’s like to lose my house or be flooded out and lose everything I own or anything like that, like some people have,” Brees said. “But then again, I know the mindset of trying to overcome a devastating loss or something devastating in my life, thinking about how you’re going to overcome this.” Brees’ mother died in 2009. “You take it one day at a time,” he said. “You set short-term goals, surround yourself with good people and have a sense of belief and faith that’s unwavering. I know the people in this community have that. We have it as a team. I think the more we are able to lean on each other to do that, it’s powerful.” Spoken like a true New Orleanian.

ootball season is here, finally. New Orleanians know the signs — helmets and shoulder pads begin to clash and, unfortunately, fans have one eye trained on the Gulf of Mexico as hurricane season reaches its height. Sports mean many things to different people, but for Who Dats a football game can be so much more. At no other time is this more evident than following a storm. It’s been fewer than two weeks since Hurricane Isaac wreaked havoc in this region; and it seems the New Orleans Saints’ regular season is starting at just the right time. Since 2005, the Saints have played a game following Hurricanes Katrina, Gustav and now Isaac. “I guess we’ve been in this situation before,” Saints quarterback Drew Brees said last week. “It’s quite emotional, and obviously a lot of people are still recovering and struggling with us as a team, recognizing what it means to them for us to be out there and (it’s) our motivation to play for them.” That’s the beauty of being a Saints fan. Regardless of political ideology, religious preference or socioeconomic status, we are members of a congregation that wear black and gold and convene on Saints game days for a common goal. Add hardship, and it’s a service we all look forward to attending. “I think that the relationship that the Saints have with the city of New Orleans is unique because we’re giving and taking from each other,” safety Malcolm Jenkins said last week. “When we have stuff that’s going on with this past offseason, our city was the first ones that really rallied around us ... when everybody else in the league was calling us cheaters and all this other stuff. Our city backed us 100 percent.” When the NFL came down hard on the Black and Gold, callers to my radio show, The Sports Hangover, were furious — and the attacks, accusations and name-calling became personal. “I know our fans can’t wait to see what we do this year with everything that is going on,” said linebacker Jonathan Casillas. “Just like our city is fighting through problems with Hurricane Isaac just passing, there have been several people here fighting this terrible tragedy. We’re here behind them,

Luke Winslow King recorded June release, The Coming Tide, with a full entourage at Piety Street Studios, and it’s a wonderful if hushed foundation for King and Esther Rose to trade call-andresponse vocal harmonies throughout the album. King wrote seven of the 11 tracks, and in total they fill a beautiful suite of traditional folk blues, with strains of spirituals, traditional jazz and folk. A native of Michigan who grew up singing Baptist hymns, King came to New Orleans in 2001 to study musical composition at the University of New Orleans, but John Boutte introduced him

WHO: Nasimiyu Murumba WHAT: socially conscious jazz and neo-soul Minneapolis native Nasimiyu Murumba (who performs under the mononym Nasimiyu) this year released her first full-length album, the sonically eclectic Rules Aren’t Real. Besides performing with her backing band the Many Moons, she plays drums and sings in Saint Bell with trombonist Jeremy Phipps, she’s in MinuteHead with guitarist Elliot Slater

Tess Brunet sat behind the kit for Deadboy & The Elephantmen, Generationals and Athens, Ga.’s Twin Tigers, but with Au Ras Au Ras, she showcases her songwriting and dreamy, melancholy pop, floating somewhere between Cat Power’s tack and Beach House’s whimsy. She released her self-titled debut last year, and on Sept. 11, she’ll release The Great Nothing, recorded exactly one year after she recorded her debut, both produced at Mississippi’s Dial Back Sound. Album single “I Lied” is a sharp and sleepy slowdance dirge, where Brunet croons from the nightmare of regret — a dark choice to introduce the album, but it lures you into her dream world. — WOODWARD

Wild-eyed guitar-anddrum cannonball Caddywhompus, recently named by the Boston Phoenix as the best band in Louisiana, is currently on a summer tour, as is Sun Hotel, progenitors of selfdescribed “post-gospel,” preaching both frantic folk and barefoot punk rock. Other up-and-coming Chinquapin artists include ear-bleeding shoegazers Glish and guitar-pop trio Habitat. Representing both camps are breakneck hardcore punk devotees Choi Wolf and New Lands. The labels aren’t exactly that. Label is a misnomer. Artists aren’t “signed” but they share a one-stop DIY home for producing and performing, and a network for tours and album distribution. Besides Community’s album release schedule and its touring pipeline, the collective produces the annual Block Party, a daylong, multi-stage festival held outside 3 Ring Circus’ The Big Top Gallery with more than a dozen bands. It also is building a veggie oil-powered van, a converted 15-passenger van that will fit two bands for carbon-conscious touring. Community Records also is prepping a “school of music,” because, “We want to teach people how to play music, whether 6 years old or 26 years old,” Ray says. “We want to share that with people.”

iving away music for free, or cheap, is a creeping threat to the faceless music business. Why would music fans spend $20 on a CD when they can download it for free? Hip-hop artists offer “mixtapes,” sometimes full albums, for free download and reach thousands or millions of people before a record company has even inked them to a deal. Why the need for a massive network of executives and meetings and recording advances and lawyers and fees and a Best Buy on every corner, if people can download the latest Lil Wayne mixtape from DatPiff.com for free? That idea is nothing new — Walmart and iTunes know full well how business is doing for their online music databases. But two local record collectives have perfected the model: Make music available for free, and trust that if people like what they hear, they’ll even pay for it. The long-running DIY clearinghouse for local and national punk bands is Community Records, founded in 2008 by New Orleans musicians Greg Rodrigue and Daniel Ray. The label provides free downloads of all its releases, but it also prints and packages vinyl albums, CDs and other label wares (most bearing a screenprinted cartoon dog). Its sister, or brother, collective is Chinquapin Records, founded in 2010 by like-minded bands Sun Hotel and Caddywhompus. Artists offer tracks, EPs and albums with options for free download or name-your-own price via services like bandcamp.com, or in digital mixtapes featuring artists from both labels. Chinquapin’s roster has expanded to include a stock of young New Orleans artists, like Native America, Ross Farbe’s bedroom experiment-turned-full band, as well as Donovan Wolfington, an upcoming

The regular Zapp’s,” de Gruy says. “Flavors get lost in 35 pounds of grease.” The menu’s prominent placement of Zapp’s and other beloved local brands (Crystal hot sauce, Abita beer, New Orleans Ice Cream Company) reflects de Gruy’s commitment to his hometown. After 20 years in the service industry and many cross-country moves as part of management for national restaurant chains, de Gruy’s wife Christina insisted they settle down. “She’s from here, and she said, ‘I’m not moving any more,’” de Gruy says. “She said I should open my own restaurant and be part of the rebuilding. And we have really jumped right into helping out local charities.” The restaurant opened in 2007 and has a full bar. This year it raised $20,000 for The Miracle League, a baseball league for children with disabilities. That reflects the company’s core values and customer base, many of whom are children. Kids eat free on Tuesday nights. “This is really a family restaurant,” says de Gruy, whose three sons often help out in the kitchen or serve customers. “I’ve been known to hold a baby while Mom eats because Dad won’t put his burger down. It’s a family restaurant, but it’s a big-ass barroom burger.”

hough he says there are more than a million possible combinations of burgers, toppings, sauces, greens and buns on his build-your-own-burger menu, Phil de Gruy, owner of Phil’s Grill (1640 Hickory Ave., Harahan, 504-305-1705; 3020 Severn Ave., Metairie, 504-3249080; www.phils-grill.com), hasn’t let that stanch his creative juices. He’s creating burgers to represent the hometowns of teams playing the New Orleans Saints. Last year, when the Saints played the Detroit Lions, de Gruy made a burger inspired by roadkill. “There is no cuisine of Detroit, and in researching, we found they eat a lot of roadkill,” de Gruy says. “So we did a deer burger.” De Gruy admits it wasn’t easy, but he and chef Justin Jones, a graduate of Delgado Community College’s culinary program, were up for the challenge. “We had to study the opposing cities really hard to find ingredients and food trends,” de Gruy says. “Who knew the state sandwich in Indianapolis was the Wiener schnitzel?” This year, de Gruy has opened up the contest to customers, who can enter suggestions on the restaurant’s website and Facebook pages and vote for favorites, such as the Washington Redskins’ “Little Big Meat,” a bison burger topped with house-cured bacon and smoked Gouda, served on an onion bun. All the burgers and the majority of the sauces and side items, which include sweet potato fries, grilled vegetables and vinegar-based cole slaw, are made in house. “We have a 100 percent ground

Just because it’s September doesn’t mean the hot weather is over, so it seems appropriate that the dining deals intended to lure locals into restaurants during the summer continue this month. The latest is called Louisiana Seafood Restaurant Week, organized by the Louisiana Restaurant Association (LRA) and held this week through Sept. 16. Participating restaurants serve twocourse lunches for $20 and three-course dinners for $35. Nearly 40 restaurants are participating, and they range from grandes dames, like Arnaud’s Restaurant (813 Bienville St., 523-5433; www.arnaudsrestaurant.com), to some of the newest places in town, such as SoBou (310 Chartres St., 552-4095; www.sobounola.com). As part of the deal, the LRA will make a contribution to the Friends of the Fishermen Fund, which provides assistance to commercial fishermen in Louisiana. Visit www.welivetoeatnola.com for details.

The Joint barbecues low and slow. By Ian McNulty

r

elocating a restaurant four blocks down the street may not seem too dramatic, but The Joint made its move theatrical. When this Bywater barbecue restaurant switched addresses in February, the job of transporting its giant smoker entailed a rented trailer, a gathering of friends and onlookers and an ersatz marching band of local musicians. The smoker got its own second line, and it seems an appropriate recipient for the honor. About the size of a hot tub and blackened by smoke, it looks like a relic of the Industrial Revolution but is in fact the heart and soul of what has been the city’s best barbecue restaurant practically since proprietors Jenny and Pete Breen opened The Joint in 2004. New Orleans had its share of barbecue spots then, though what remained elusive was really smoky barbecue cooked in the low-and-slow style. More places have emerged since (see notable pop-ups NOLA Smokehouse and McClure’s Barbecue), but The Joint set the standard. Before your first bite you can smell the difference the smoker approach makes, and you can even see it. A pink smoke ring, testimony of a long, slow smoking process, paints the meats here, and it’s the unifying factor for a menu that borrows widely from different regional barbecue traditions. Pork spare ribs are done St. Louis-style, and in their cross section you can see the variegations of smoke emanating

Pete and Jenny Breen moved The Joint into a larger space on Mazant Street.

down to the bone from the crackling, sticky, almost candied exterior. Thin slices of Texas-style brisket, topped with a tight band of fat, tear apart easily in geometric patterns. The pulled pork, prepared Carolina style, seems more blasted than pulled, with soft mounds strewn with blackened bits of salty crust. The smoke ring beautifully traces chaurice, a spicy, Creole-style sausage The Joint sources from the legendary Poche’s Market in Breaux Bridge, La. And if an order of chicken sounds plain compared to the glory of multicolored ribs, think again. The Joint’s bird comes out smoky as a campfire but juicy as chicken from a rotisserie. The menu is short and traditional, with meats served on platters or sandwiches and abetted by squeeze bottles of thin, peppery, vinegar-based sauces. While sides like baked macaroni, potato salad and beans are all fine, I wish they weren’t so traditional if only to see what this crew could come up with using more fresh produce and imagination. The new Joint is substantially larger than the original, and it’s much better equipped. There’s a bar with cocktails and even a wine list (unthinkable amenities at the original location), and the room glows with honey-colored cypress and beadboard. The jukebox is so local there must be a residency requirement for musicians on its playlist, and the clientele includes every walk of Bywater life. The smoker resides out back, under an enlarged carport, puffing away as always, scenting the air, the meats and customers with aromatic gusts.

A delicious pinot noir from Oregon’s top-rated yamhill-Carlton District, Belle Pente offers quality and value for the price. Caretakers of the winery’s estate-grown, organically farmed vineyards use biodynamic practices. The medium-bodied wine is put through a three-level gravity-flow system, resting primarily in neutral barrels with a small percentage of new oak. In the glass, the wine offers complex aromas of raspberry, blackberry, herbs and sweet spice. On the palate, taste black cherry, ripe berries, cinnamon and thyme notes, some minerality, a refreshing acidity and fine-grained tannins on the smooth finish. Open the bottle an hour before serving to aerate it.

Progress toward those plans will be a focal point this week at Hungry in the South, the museum’s annual seminar. The program gathers scholars, restaurant industry professionals, policymakers and the public for a four-day itinerary at locations around town, including the museum’s future Central City facility, which is under renovation. That’s where the museum will host its Hungry in the South SoFAB Gala from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Friday. Seminars during the event address the influence science and technology have on food, social media’s impact on food culture and legal topics for the food and restaurant industries, from the rise of food trucks to changes to this year’s federal Farm Bill. 2012’s edition of Hungry in the South also includes a new food-related film festival called Film Feast, with most screenings at the Zeitgeist Multi-Disciplinary Arts Center (1618 Oretha Castle Haley Blvd.). On Saturday, Film Feast includes an outdoor screening of Big Night, the 1996 foodie favorite, at the downtown Rouses Market (701 Baronne St.). Hungry in the South wraps on Sunday at the French Market (1008 N. Peters St.) with a cookbook fair, which includes a cookbook swap, book signings and cooking demonstrations.

long with partners Hans Limburg and Greg Reggio, Gary darling is co-founder of Taste Buds Inc. (www.thetastebuds.com), a New Orleans-based restaurant development and consulting firm that launched the Semolina restaurant concept in 1991 and the Zea Rotisserie & Grill chain in 1997. A Los Angeles native and chef, darling moved to Louisiana in the 1970s and by 1983 was working with legendary New Orleans chef and food developer Warren LeRuth to help build Copeland’s of New Orleans into a national restaurant chain. earlier this year, Taste Buds won the National Restaurant Association’s Restaurant Neighbor Award for community service. From your start as a chef, how did your career lead you to restaurant management and development? Darling: My path evolved from working those 16- or 18-hour days in the kitchen at restaurants and hotels and then transitioned into the teaching end of it, and that’s what introduced me to the research and development part of being a chef. From there, it was back into the creative role of developing restaurants. I think that background allowed me, along with my partners, to come up with recipes and restaurant models that have creativity and consistency. What’s a key component for a restaurant model to successfully expand? D: The foundation is to develop a palate of flavors with your seasonings and sauces that are unique to your place, that people can only get there and that shows through in your food. So at Zea, when someone gets the Thai ribs, they know it will be the same at any location. That depends on having someone who consistently can produce your flavors for you. Last year, you and your partners created Three Chefs One Mission to cook for communities recovering from natural disasters. Is that about more than just providing meals? D: When we do those events, we approach it like a mini Jazz Fest. We set up a stage, we have music, there’s a lot going on, and when people come to eat, we’re not serving relief food. We have Louisiana seafood, Louisiana dishes. So we look at it as providing relief in two ways. Yes, there’s food and sustenance, but you’re also taking your mind off whatever you’re dealing with. Those problems will still be there, but you’re giving people a little emotional, psychological and physical relief. — IAN MCNULTY

That kitchen and one dining hall escaped major damage this time around, Pfeifer says, and that is giving them hope that, once again, they can reopen quickly. “We have our moments, but we have a great group of people here surrounding us, incredible people who have done work here in the past, and right now it’s looking good,” she says.

Upperline art is safe

For most restaurants in the New Orleans area, reopening after Isaac was primarily a question of when electricity could be restored, fresh supplies procured and adequate staff lined up. But some restaurants took more of a beating than others, and one significant example is Upperline (1413 Upperline St., 504-891-9822; www.upperline.com), the contemporary Creole bistro operated for 30 years by JoAnn Clevenger. Part of the restaurant’s roof was blown off, causing water damage inside. Chef David Bridges and staff got to work on repairs quickly, however, and Clevenger is optimistic the restaurant can reopen this week. Call Upperline after 1 p.m. for updates and reservations.

Clevenger also reports the art collection on Upperline’s walls has been saved. One of her managers noticed the roof damage right away and moved threatened pieces out of harm’s way.

Katrina Turillo, an event organizer and managing partner at La Divina Gelateria (www.ladivinagelateria.com), says it’s a show of support for Leeming, whose husband, chef James Leeming, died unexpectedly last year at age 50. “You pay and get your meal as usual, but (the cash mob) is just a way to get business in when someone needs it most, and we ask people to use cash to avoid any credit card fees,” she says.

“We will write if the person is kosher or can’t eat shellfish. And we take note of the people who sat for six and a half hours last time, so next time we are sure to give them an uncomfortable seat.” — ed Schoenfeld, owner of the contemporary Chinese restaurant RedFarm in Manhattan, quoted in a New York Times article about how restaurants are using computer systems and online services to keep increasingly detailed files on customer habits and preferences.

The images of Middendorf’s Seafood Restaurant (30160 Hwy. 51, Akers, 985-386-6666; www.middendorfsrestaurant.com) that emerged after Hurricane Isaac were heartrending and all too familiar. The famous eatery between Lake Pontchartrain and Lake Maurepas was inundated by storm surge. Co-owner Karen Pfeifer reports that not all of Middendorf’s was flooded, and repair work is underway to get the restaurant’s signature thin-cut catfish back into circulation. She and husband Horst Pfeifer hope the restaurant can begin serving in part of its facility as early as this week, though prospective diners should call for updates. Located in the fishing village of Manchac, La., Middendorf’s was founded in 1934 and has been a landmark for generations. Its location between New Orleans and Baton Rouge has made it a popular meeting spot for families and friends spread across the region. Its specialty of thin-sliced fried catfish has earned such a following that some New Orleanians routinely make the 40-mile drive for a meal. The damage Middendorf’s suffered in Isaac looks a lot like the aftermath of Hurricane Ike in 2008. The Pfeifers got the restaurant partially functional within weeks of Ike. As they made those repairs, they also built in a little more survivability into their restaurant, like a new kitchen raised substantially off the ground.

For nearly 300 years, New Orleans has been home to a dynamic regional cuisine, blending influences from Spain, France, Italy, Africa and beyond. Today, that cuisine has a new home — Criollo Restaurant & Lounge in the French Quarter’s historic Hotel Monteleone. Chef Joe Maynard has created a bold, inventive menu inspired by the city’s legendary culinary heritage, yet with an appreciation for contemporary tastes. And each dish is prepared with regional bounty from both farm and sea. New Orleans dining doesn’t get any fresher than this.

what to know before you go

Down to the Wire Lightwire Theater goes from national TV to local show. By Will Coviello

I

to visually relate the story of a dinosaur, a scientist and a rogue T-Rex named Brutus. That show was well-received and the company set out to do The Ugly Duckling using the same approach. The group created its own version of the story, but Ian notes that many people don’t know the original version by Hans Christian Andersen. “We take our own twists with it,” Carney says. “Everyone knows the idea of it. I don’t think everyone knows the story. People know what Disney fed us, but if you read the story it’s different. The message of The Ugly Duckling is that if you come from a great family and you are beautiful, life will be easy for you. I think children need more from the story. Our Duckling is a little different.” Their production includes two tales, a modern version of Aesop’s Tortoise and the Hare and The Ugly Duckling. In the Tortoise story, they have updated the Hare’s carelessness to feature some contemporary distractions, such as texting. The show debuted in January in Austin, Texas, and has

been on tour since then. After more than 130 performances, it will have its New Orleans debut at the CAC. In October, Lightwire will perform the show in Russia. The group also is looking at new opportunities. “We’re seeing a lot more interest since the last round (of America’s Got Talent),” Carney says. “It’s starting to fill in holes in tours. We’re trying to expand past just theatrical shows. We’ll do industry things. Maybe we’ll follow the Blue Man Group model. That was a small thing that started in Astor Plaza (in New York) and just exploded.”

Lightwire Theater presents its version of The Ugly Duckling.

an Carney, cofounder and artistic director of Lightwire Theater, was particularly glad New Orleanians got power restored following Hurricane Isaac. The company reached the semifinals of NBC’s America’s Got Talent and was fortunate to appear on the program’s Sept. 4 and 6 broadcasts, allowing locals to vote. Had the group been scheduled for the prior week, when much of the region was without power, many locals would not have been able to view the program or vote online. Since its debut at the program’s St. Louis auditions, Lightwire Theater wowed judges Howard Stern, Sharon Osbourne and Howie Mandel. As the group advanced through several rounds of competition over the summer, it took characters from its two shows, Darwin the Dinosaur and The Ugly Duckling, and used them to create vignettes using dance, light and illusion. On a darkened stage, electrically lit dinosaurs battled each other, flowers sprouted and danced and ducks left the nest. At the semifinals on Sept. 6, Lightwire Theater found itself in a head-to-head battle with David Garibaldi and his CMYKs, an artist who creates instant paintings along with a team of dancing assistants. Osbourne and Mandel split their votes and it came down to Stern, who gave the nod to Garibaldi to advance to the finals. Lightwire Theater comes home to New Orleans and will debut its full Ugly Duckling show at the Contemporary Arts Center (CAC). “We’re excited to come back to the CAC,” Carney says. “It’s an intimate house.” The core of Lightwire Theater comes from the foundation of CORBiAN Visual Arts and Dance, a company formed by Ian Carney, wife Eleanor Carney and Corbin and Whitney Popp. Ian and Corbin met while dancing professionally in Twyla Tharp’s Broadway show Movin’ Out. The two performers were interested in creating a new kind of stage drama using special lighting materials. They designed their first costumes for Darwin the Dinosaur, a drama performed on a dark stage with the figures outlined in electroluminescent wires. There’s no dialogue, and the company members rely on their dance backgrounds

amanda palmer is an outlier, statistically speaking and otherwise. forget for a minute her shirtless, painted-face, drummed-up piano blitzkriegs as the weimar cabaret-punk duo Dresden Dolls. Theatre is Evil, palmer’s second solo record, materializes this week as the largest Kickstarter music project ever, a $1.2 million wish cast simultaneously by almost 25,000 benefactors. to the thousands of artists eking out $10,000 godsends every year, it may look like palmer gamed the system, the crowd-funding equivalent of the st. bernard project rebuilding manses like those on st. Charles avenue. in truth, the 36-yearold performer has been photo bY sherVin laineZ farther ahead of the recording industry’s death-spiral curve than any- SEPt amanda palmer & the one except maybe radiohead, a band grand theft orchestra that flies in its own stratosphere. Who 9 p.m. monday Killed Amanda Palmer, her 2009 solo tipitina’s debut, moved about 35,000 units, but 501 napoleon ave. palmer’s reach — cultivated through curtainpulling interactions on Youtube (where 899-4206 she posts just-written song ideas), twitter www.tipitinas.com (635,179 followers) and her website www.amandapalmer.net (open calls for “horn-y and string-y” volunteers for her fall tour), as well as in showy, direct fandemonium like her 2010 flash-mob wedding in new orleans — exceeds the simple grasp of a spreadsheet. and Kickstarter, for all its charitable good, is just a clever form of advance sales: The New York Times reports that Theatre is Evil opens $100,000 in the black, a number unheard of for independent releases. “i would kill to make you feel/ i’d kill to move your face an inch,” palmer sneers on “the Killing type,” a promising first return on all those investments. no killing necessary, just a few clicks. tickets $20 in advance, $22 day of show. — noah bonaparte pais

THRu The Imposter (R) It only takes a couple of minutes sEpt 2 p.m. & 7 p.m. for British documentarian Bart Tue.-Thu. Layton’s The Imposter to make Chalmette Movies viewers feel uneasy. As the film begins, home movies and photos 8700 w. Judge perez Drive, of a 13-year-old San Antonio, Texas, Chalmette, (504) 304-9992 boy named Nicholas Barclay — who disappeared without a trace in 1994 www.chalmettemovies.com — are intercut with painful snippets of conversation with his still-distraught family. Soon it all gives way to staged scenes of a runaway teen found three years after Barclays’ disappearance halfway across the globe in Linares, Spain, followed by footage of a full-grown man with a heavy accent casually describing how he perpetrated an epic theft of the boy’s identity. How could a con man succeed at such a bizarre and horrible crime? And why is he allowed to sit calmly in front of a movie camera and explain his craft while exuding an obvious sense of pride in his accomplishment? That uneasy feeling grows into full-blown dread by the time this entrancing but troubling film draws to a close. The star of the show is real-life serial imposter Frederick Bourdin, a Frenchman who reportedly assumed as many as 500 false identities since launching his unusual career while still a child. Bourdin’s life was fictionalized in a 2010 French movie called The Chameleon, which employed Bourdin as a consultant and set his story in Baton Rouge. The Imposter is another kind of film altogether. It’s less interested in identity theft than in the self-deception and complicity required of Bourdin’s victims — in this case, the Barclay family — and how people can force themselves to believe almost anything given the right set of desperate circumstances. Bourdin’s brown eyes, dyed hair, thick accent, obviously advanced age and penchant for odd clothing that hid his facial features didn’t stop the Barclays from accepting him as the blonde-haired, blue-eyed Nicholas. Bourdin also fooled Spanish police and social workers, an entire Texas community and the FBI. But there’s more to The Imposter’s layered deceptions. In the film’s final act, events take a sharp turn that alters the meaning of what came before and fairly justifies the seemingly inappropriate style in which the film tells its sordid tale. That style is a descendant of the early films of Errol Morris, who first blurred boundaries between narrative and documentary techniques in award-winning films like The Thin Blue Line. There are no shaky handheld shots in The Imposter. Instead we find slick widescreen photography, re-enactments by seasoned actors and an expensive soundtrack with familiar songs by David Bowie and Cat Stevens to accentuate the film’s emotional peaks. In the end, all that gloss makes the audience feel like fellow victims of a grand deception. The Imposter demonstrates that anyone can be taken in by a skilled con artist, even one who’s only wielding a movie camera. — KEN KORMAN

One of the more interesting things sEpt about the annual No Dead Artists 28 show is how it sometimes reflects the subcurrents roiling through society at large that may not show up quite as clearly in mainstream culture — at least yet. If this show is any gauge, the evolving role of the individual in an increasingly complicated world of giant global corporations provides an increasingly stark contrast to the American myth of the rugged individualist hero, an ethos that now seems as creaky as Clint Eastwood’s semi-coherent conversation with an empty chair at the Republican National Convention. It may be that today’s rugged individualists are more likely to be found on the margins of society, or such is the implicit message of Ira Upin’s dramatic magic realist paintings such as Fat Cat (pictured), in which an aging mobster in sunglasses puffs on a cheroot and reclines in his easy chair as a torched building goes up in flames in the background. In Jeff Pastorek’s paintings, the individual subjects appear as tiny portraits arranged in grids where the emphasis is on how people express their emotions or desires in relation to each other, transforming portraiture into a painterly social network. In Nikki Rosato’s figure studies like Connections No. 1, male and female silhouettes cobbled from road maps face each other as psychic connections represented by interstate highway systems connect the heart, mind and private parts in an endocrine superhighway of tentative longing. But nature is the ultimate arbiter of human events, as we see in Ayano Hisa’s haunting photos of Japanese schools devastated by an earthquake. Here destroyed classrooms evoke the presence of students by their absence as rows of ruined desks stand shrouded in dust. Nature’s healing role is reflected in Abhidnya Ghuge’s hive-like installation of handmade paper plates, recalling the cellular systems of the natural world and how all creatures must situate themselves within their environment — as well as within themselves — in an age in which change is the only constant. — D.

Dancers include 2011 Queen of Burlesque winner Ginger Valentine, 2010 winner Coco Lectric (pictured), 2009 winner Perle Noire, dancer and actress Stephanie Blake, Ms. Redd from Las Vegas, Lola Van Ellen, Banbury Cross from London, Medianoche from Spain and many others. Special performers and guests at the 2012 event include New Orleans’ own Kitty West, who performed as Evangeline the Oyster Girl in the 1940s and ’50s, as well as the male and female winners at Las Vegas’ Burlesque Hall of Fame competition. there are daytime workshops and seminars on various burlesque topics; new this year is a mixer with the festival’s featured dancers (8 p.m.-midnight Wednesday, Loa at the International House Hotel).

NEW ORLEANS

JOB GURU

Dear New Orleans Job Guru, “I just moved to New Orleans to start school at Tulane (I’m a Sociology major). I want a part-time job, but I don’t know what to put on my résumé because I’ve never had a “real” job. I worked as a nanny and did a bunch of volunteer work, but that’s about it. Help!” — Sarah K., Uptown, New Orleans, LA Dear Sarah, First of all, congratulations on moving to New Orleans! Our city has been greatly enhanced by many of the students who came here to earn a degree, fell in love with the city, and ended up making it their home. Also, Tulane has a nationally recognized Service Learning program that can provide you with excellent opportunities for internships, projects, and activities that directly Grant Cooper improve New Orleans. I’m sure you’ve already had some form of vocational, career, or academic counseling, because an undergraduate degree in Sociology, at least in today’s economic landscape, may offer limited employment opportunities. Most of my clients who initially majored in Sociology went on to get a Master of Social Work degree, a graduate degree in Counseling, or applied to law school, but you’ve got a lot of time to figure that out at this point. Here is an example of a Nanny “job description” for a client of ours that helped her land a part-time position: Provided supervision and care for the children of a corporate president with 3 children under 8 years old. Responsible for supervising play, naps, and recreation, reading, learning assistance, homework help, and performing related parenting duties as needed in a safe and enriching environment. Prepared snacks and meals as needed, assisted in household maintenance, ran errands, escorted children to dance classes and local parks, and performed a variety of household management responsibilities. Accompanied the family on several vacations and trips, taught basic etiquette and manners to children, and handled conflict resolution in a positive and effective manner.

Sarah, getting a part-time job is a great idea, as it will give you real world work experience, improve your résumé, and provide you with a bit of spending money. However, your first order of business should be to concentrate on your studies and excel in your academic work. I have prepared too many résumés for university graduates who lamented the fact that they partied (or worked) too much during their first few semesters, got poor grades, and spent the rest of their college years trying to pull their GPA back up to a decent level so they could attract potential employers or get into a good graduate program. Enough of the parental lecturing (I have 3 college graduate children)! In preparing your résumé for part-time student positions, try to keep it brief. Even if you didn’t have actual jobs, here are some examples of items that you can accentuate on your résumé to impress potential employers: • Volunteering, group membership, fundraising, leadership activities, event planning • High school academic accomplishments, summer camp attendance, travel experiences • Informal work, providing pet care, house sitting, paid chores for neighbors, yard care • Assisting in any way with businesses owned by your parents, relatives, or family friends Tulane University has an excellent Career Center with many resources and a great staff to help you with these issues. Also, please feel free to contact our office. We can review your résumé, and will be happy to review it to ensure that it meets the expectations of today’s employers. New Orleans Job Guru is New Orleans native Grant Cooper. President of Strategic Résumés®, Grant is currently ranked in the Top 2% of 340 LinkedIn National Résumé Writing Experts and has fulfilled contracts for the U.S. Air Force, Kinko’s, the Louisiana Dept. of Labor, the City of New Orleans, the NFL, the NBA, as well as universities, regional banks, celebrities, and major corporations throughout the nation.
