“AL” TOGETHER NOW
For the ﬁrst time Friday, Burlington schoolkids got a day off for the Muslim holiday Eid-alFitr. Now they’re learning something.
Last weekend’s South End Art Hop drew thousands of gallery-goers to Burlington for two days of art appreciation. The Seven Days ofﬁce was a stop on the Hop — we held our annual birthday celebration there on Friday night. Seven Days also sponsored the Juried Show at the Soda Plant. We used the occasion to perform a social-media experiment with Foursquare, a location-based social-networking service that allows users to “check in” to a place using a mobile phone. We created a “venue” for the Juried Show and invited hoppers to check in and to leave “tips” — aka comments — about the art. We weren’t sure how popular this would be. After all, Foursquare’s local user base is relatively small, though passionate. We wondered if anyone would want to look at their phone when they could be looking at art. But our ﬂiers and our Facebook and Twitter messages paid off — 37 people checked in at the show. Several of them left tips. To read more, or to leave your own tip about the Art Hop, visit the Soda Plant and check into the Juried Show. You can also read about our Foursquare experiment on Blurt, the Seven Days staff blog, at sevendaysvt.com. We’re not sure what to do with Foursquare yet, but we had fun playing with it.
JOBS, JOBS, JOBS
Jonah S.: Check out The Flow by Samantha Castonguay. Amanda W.: Make sure to have a look at John Brickles’ Au Pair Bot! His gallery is deﬁnitel y worth ﬁnding and spending time in, too. Will S.: Check out Jonathan Black ’s type sculpture. Andy B.: The robots by John Brick els are amazing. He has some other work at Shelburne Muse um too. Don’t miss it. Heidi S.: Love Breana Einsing’s “Unti tled.” Beautiful composition and it really embodies the charm of fall color.

Kudos to Andy Bromage, who two weeks ago ably substituted for Shay Totten [“Fair Game,” September 1], who himself has done a superb job ﬁlling the big shoes of the incomparable Peter Freyne. I was particularly happy to see Bromage raise the issue of instant-runoff voting in his section on the Democratic gubernatorial primary recount. The prime beneﬁt of IRV is that in the vast majority of elections with three or more candidates, it eliminates the spoiler effect; it also assures the selection of a candidate whom at least 50 percent of the voters are content with, at the very least. To have a majority of the voters satisﬁed with the results of such an election is no small thing. Mooooving from the sublime to the bovine, Bromage’s next section — the one on Alan Simpson’s udder-ly outrageous “tit” comment about Social Security — I can only say good for Bernie for forcefully responding to a remark that was pure bull. His letter to Obama should have Simpson cow-ering in his office, as the call for the “bossy” Fiscal Responsibility Commission cochairman’s head is appropriate tit for tat. Russ Weis

[Re: “Fair Game,” September 1]: They aren’t tits, but teats. Sheesh. Mary Schwartz EAST DORSET
Andy Bromage responds: In his offending email, Alan Simpson, chairman of President Obama’s deﬁcit commission, in fact referred to milk cow “tits,” rather than “teats.” On second reference, we should have put “tit” in quotation marks, or used the correct word, “teats.” Seven Days apologizes to our readers and Vermont’s 139,719 milk cows for the error.
NAY TO CHE
Regarding the Second Vermont Republic’s addition of the image of Che Guevara to its flag [“Vermont’s Secessionist Movement Debuts Something New: Candidates,” September 8]: What could that mean? That if the secessionist movement is successful, they will hold mass executions, nationalize U.S. industry, promote the flight of social and financial capital, send gays to internment camps, and run the economy into the ground? Or is it just a trendy symbol meant to accrue some anti-American street cred? Either the movement is drastically misinformed and ignorant of history, or terminally flippant.

should be given a platform regardless of who they are or how much money they have. Our political system, from top to bottom, is so corrupted by legalized graft that we cannot hope to reform it without removing political contributions completely. tim trotochaud
I wholly endorse almost everything the Second Vermont Republic does, but I’m completely against putting Ernesto “Che” Guevara on top of the SVR flag. Pretty offensive to put a murderer’s face on a peaceful symbol, if you ask me.

It should not even be a question about declaring who gives money to politicians [“Gubernatorial Candidates Raised $423,812 From ‘Undisclosed Donors’ — Does It Matter?” August 25]. Every penny given to a politician and what expectations come with that donation should be declared. When I am paid for work that I do, I know exactly what I am being paid for, and the person who pays me has expectations for what they are receiving for that money. It is not a gift. Someone who is running for office is applying for a job. Granted, it is a different kind of job interview, but it is a job interview. Not only is it a job interview, but they are being paid for the job before they are even hired. Where else does that happen? I personally think that no one running for political office should be allowed to take any money from anyone except the state … [and] that anyone who wants to run for a political office

UniVerSiTy Park, Pa
I am one of those African Americans who was willing to brave the cold in order to teach in the Vermont public schools — I’m bald, so I didn’t need to worry about getting my hair fixed [“The Diversity Test,” August 25]. I met a lot of nice, committed educators during the two and a half years I sought employment, but I also bumped heads with some of the most overtly patronizing and unabashedly — let’s call them provincial — administrators this side of Little Rock, Ark. Like the principal who, during the course of an interview, told me I had an “odd skill set” (I work as a music critic, NPR commentator and teacher, and was a Smithsonian curator for 21 years). Or the principal who thought I had a “limited education.” I often ended up wondering why I was selected for an interview in the first place. While I do think there is some serious racial stonewalling going on in the Green Mountain State, I am also beginning to believe that some of the problem is due to the aforementioned provincialism. (The shabby treatment hurts either way.) I wish Vermont well in its struggle to come to grips with the demographic changes that challenge the entire nation. Still, I think it is important for me to say that

MAGNIFICENT SEVEN 11
A wacky Outright Vermont fundraiser gets folks all fired up. The seventh annual Fire Truck Pull pits teams of 12 against — you guessed it — a shiny red engine. Contestants in costume must drag the vehicle 20 feet up the Church Street Marketplace, competing for speed, best-dressed, most-funds-raised and audiencechoice prizes. With heated rivalry between Team Gaga and Team Madonna, it’s a good thing there’s a fire extinguisher on hand.

The Enosburg Opera House’s annual fundraiser has a flair for the theatrical — and rightly so for a performingarts venue. Attendees turn back the clock to the Prohibition era, entering a swanky speakeasy in period dress. Awaiting are songstress Tammy Fletcher (pictured), appetizers and a martini bar. Scandalous!
Lots of bands brew up music that’s tough to classify, but one Brooklyn-based trio’s tunes are such a genre bender that the only thing to do was dub themselves the Inbetweens. Perpetually caught among jazz, experimental and indie styles, they’ll play up a unique fusion at the FlynnSpace on Sunday.

Burlington has doled out $225,000 to its outside legal team from McNeil, Leddy & Sheahan, including $43,000 paid to the state Department of Public Service and the Vermont Public Service Board so they could hire experts to examine BT’s books.

Other D&F senior staff are paid between $950 and $1600 a day depending on the work they do. In its contract with the city, D&F speciﬁes that it does not want publicity. It notes that if D&F hadn’t been mentioned in the media earlier this year, the ﬁrm would have required a “no public disclosure” clause.

Meanwhile, the Vermont Public Service Board may be closer to mandating a timeline to get BT back into compliance with its certiﬁcate of public good. Attorney General BILL SORRELL says a legal probe of BT’s ﬁnancial dealings from Orleans County State’s Attorney KEITH FLYNN should be ready within six weeks. Hard to believe it’s been almost a year since BT’s ﬁnancial woes went public.
If You Can’t Say Anything Nice
On Monday, Republican BRIAN DUBIE and Democrat PETER SHUMLIN squared off for their ﬁrst official, mano-a-mano debate on WVMT-AM’s “Charlie + Ernie + Lisa Show.” About midway through the debate, host CHARLIE PAPILLO asked each to say something nice about the other. “I think Brian is an incredibly decent person and would give you the shirt off his back,” said Shumlin. Then came Dubie, who had a much harder time responding. Perhaps he’s reading too many of the press releases from his campaign that are calling Shumlin “ethically challenged” and a liar? “Peter is someone who is passionate about what he believes in,” said Dubie. Then he added, “I appreciate the fact that Peter loves his daughters. That’s a good thing.” Yeesh. He probably cares about his mom, too. Maybe even apple pie.
Both candidates made mistakes during their ﬁrst debate: Dubie said he’d “target the most vulnerable” when cutting state spending; Shumlin claimed he led the charge to lower the sales tax from 5 to 4 percent in the late 1990s. Shumlin’s campaign later admitted the sales tax was supposed to drop to 4 percent but the legislature kept the rate at 5 percent — a gaffe that conﬁrms Shumlin’s rep for stretching the truth. Dubie’s campaign later claimed the lite gov meant to say “protect” the vulnerable rather than target them. Maybe, but if you listen to the rest of Dubie’s quote, he said state programs needed reform.
I’m sure he meant all the nonvulnerable programs, right? Right. You can hear a replay of the live debate by tuning into 620AM Thursday at 7:10 a.m. The pair have two more verbal sparring sessions this week. They debate Wednesday night at 7 p.m. on Vermont Public Radio and again Friday morning on WDEV’s “Mark Johnson Show” at 9 a.m. The latter will be broadcast live from the Tunbridge World’s Fair.

Save the Rich!
Dubie loves to talk about cutting taxes, but doesn’t follow up with many details about for whom or how much. That’s why Rep. MICHAEL OBUCHOWSKI (D-Rockingham) recently asked the Joint Fiscal Office to quantify Dubie’s tax cuts. The estimate? Dubie’s plan amounts to another $248 million for Vermonters, including the wealthiest 1400, plus an additional $7 million or so in cuts to the corporate income tax. Dubie argues the tax cuts would go to “job creators” who would invest that money in new companies, new hires, etc. It’s a good theory, but a recent Moody’s Analytics study found that the wealthy saved the money they received from the tax cuts handed out by Pres. GEORGE W. BUSH. It’s also important to note that Dubie’s cuts wouldn’t be put in place until after the state closes an expected $110-120 million budget gap next year. Neither candidate was speciﬁc about how to ﬁx that ﬁnancial problem, even when pressed during the WVMT debate. Dubie said he supports completing the Challenges for Change effort and implementing some of the so-called

Tiger Team suggestions ignored by the legislature — proposals that included cuts to the nonprofit housing and mental health agencies and trimming the state’s Medicaid rolls. Good luck getting those past a Democratic majority. “Challenges” is the multiyear program designed to make government more efficient — I know, I know, it’s an oxymoron. Shumlin wants to do more with “Challenges,” too, adding that his plan to create a single-payer system will save money — but didn’t say how much. He also suggested the state could save as much as $40 million in corrections. He favors releasing nonviolent offenders from jail, claiming they’d benefit from less-expensive drug treatment.

FAIR GAME 13
Now that the primary is over, where do the “loser” campaign managers go? Some are staying on for the rest of the electoral season, while others are returning to private life. Deb Markowitz’s campaign manager, Paul tencher, is now running the Democrats’ coordinated campaign effort, which supports all statewide Democrats running for office. Democratic Party executive director robert DeMPsey said the party picked up four or five ex-campaign workers from a variety of losing primary campaigns. Others, however, are moving on or waiting for a phone call. kevin o’holleran, Matt Dunne’s campaign manager, has moved to Washington, D.C., where his spouse took a job, and is taking some time off before rejoining the workforce. John bauer, susan bartlett’s campaign manager, is going back to his role as a marketing consultant. One key campaign manager looking for work is aMy shollenberger, who ran Doug racine’s campaign. With scant resources but an army of union supporters and volunteers, Shollenberger fully applied her grassroots organizing skills. If a job doesn’t turn up within the party, however, Shollenberger says she’ll focus on ramping up her consulting biz, Action Circles, whose slogan is “building movements with action and hope.” Shollenberger started the business last year, just before Racine hired her to run his campaign. Because Shollenberger was focused on the recount, Dempsey said the party is only now trying to find a spot for her on the fall election team. “Her effort did not go unnoticed,”
Like Vermont’s unemployed campaign workers, many of the state’s labor unions are looking for a new horse, since theirs — Doug Racine — lost by a nose in the Democratic primary. The Vermont AFL-CIO, the VermontNEA and the Vermont State Employees Association all supported Racine. On Tuesday, the 7500member VSEA backed Shumlin. Other major unions will likely follow suit in the coming weeks. Another key state employees’ union — the Vermont Troopers’ Association — may endorse in the races for governor and lite gov within a few weeks. It’s already chosen Democrats Sen. Patrick leahy, Rep. Peter welch and JiM conDos for secretary of state. In the primary, the cops backed Democrat Matt Dunne. As for other unions, the Teamsters joined Shumlin’s team early on, and Dubie had the pre-general election support of the Professional Fire Fighters of Vermont and the chapter of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers. The IBEW represents about 200 workers at Vermont Yankee nuclear power plant. The IBEW and PFFV, both members of the Vermont AFL-CIO, are pushing the AFL-CIO’s executive committee to either back Dubie or sit out the race. Look for that decision on September 26. IBEW has three of the 23 votes on that executive committee, but it’s likely not all members will attend the meeting. “In my mind a decision to not endorse is akin to backing Dubie,” says one union source who asked to remain anonymous. “If the AFL-CIO backs Dubie, it will spell the end of the union’s political relevance for the next 10 years. It will break the trust we have built with working-class Vermonters over the last decade.” m

A New Vermont Law Calls Out Chronic Truancy b Y KEN PicArD
14 LOCAL MATTERS
ears ago, it wasn’t uncommon for Vermonters to pull their kids out of school for a week or two to go deer hunting or to help with the fall harvest. Teachers and principals didn’t consider those absences “truancy” — just standard seasonal obligations. Not anymore. In the last several weeks, school districts and supervisory unions around the state have sent letters to parents informing them of new mandatory attendance policies that take effect this school year. Policies differ from district to district, but it’s safe to say that excessive absences, both unexcused and excused, can trigger letters to parents, mandatory meetings with administrators and social workers, and even possible legal action. The new attendance standard came from the Vermont legislature via the Vermont Department of Education, which in 2009 issued a directive to districts and supervisory unions designed to crack down on chronic truancy. The goal is to maximize the time kids spend in school, which correlates to better graduation rates. But some parents feel the new policies unfairly undermine their authority to determine legitimate reasons for their children’s absence. Several weeks ago, for example, the Williston School District sent letters to parents informing them that, as of the 2010-11 school year, parents will automatically be notified when a child misses 10 days of school. Missing 15 days of school requires the parents and child to attend a mandatory meeting with administrators and counselors, and 20 absences or more could be referred to the Chittenden County state’s attorney and the Vermont
Department for Children and Families. Under the new policy, legal action can be initiated for “excused” absences, such as those due to illness, bereavement, family vacations, religious observances or time spent with parents home on leave from a military deployment. One Williston mother complained that the new policy makes all absences seem “criminal,” regardless of their cause. “What if it were like H1N1 last year, when kids were getting sick left and right?” asks the mom, who did not want to be identified. “If my kid has a 103 temperature, you don’t want them in school with you, and I’m not sending them. But I should be able to make that call.” Such reactions are understandable, concedes Barbara Crippen, the DOE’s legal counsel, but she says they’re unwarranted. The new policy isn’t meant to punish kids who occasionally get the flu or have a death in the family. Instead, this “family intervention team” model is designed to help students who may be dealing with more serious issues at home, such as mental illness, poverty, abuse, neglect, or drug and alcohol dependencies. “We had one parent who was calling her kid in sick 119 days, all considered ‘excused’ absences,” notes Martha Maksym, director of community investments at the United Way of Chittenden County. Maksym heads the Chittenden County Truancy Project, a 12-year-old effort to increase high school graduation rates countywide. “This is really about school success,” she says. “It’s really important for kids to be in school.” The Truancy Project was launched in the late 1990s because three of the four high schools with the state’s highest dropout rates — Burlington, Winooski and Milton
— were in Chittenden County. At the time, Burlington High School’s annual dropout rate was nearly 10 percent, or about 100 students per year. The first step was to determine why students were dropping out. Unsurprisingly, the researchers found that a strong indicator of success was whether kids were actually attending school, and whether they had a responsible adult at home who cared if they made it to class. Educators also discovered that when schools didn’t started paying attention to truancy until high school, “They absolutely missed the boat. It’s way too late,” Maksym says. Since compulsory education in Vermont only runs to age 16, “kids know that at 16, they can walk.” During the 1998-99 school year, Burlington initiated a new attendance policy, similar to the one Williston just adopted. Parents objected then, too. As Maksym recalls, some complained that “taking my honor student to Europe for a week” was a legitimate excuse, while others argued that deer camp was more important than math and social studies. “We really wanted to get out of the business of having the schools make value judgments about why the kids weren’t there,” she says. Despite the parental push back, by the 2008-09 school year, Burlington’s dropout rate had fallen to 3.5 percent. The success in Burlington and other districts with similar policies, including Rutland, led the legislature to pass Act 44 in 2009. Among other things, the law requires the education commissioner to set up a working group to study truancy and come back with legislative recommendations. Since then, the DOE has posted Chittenden and Rutland counties’ attendance policies on its website, and has encouraged other districts to standardize their policies.

such as those due to illness, bereavement, family vacations, religious observances or time spent with parents home on leave from a military deployment. While some parents may still be concerned that an illness-prone child will end up in family court, Maksym calls that “a nonissue.” She says the state’s attorney’s office already has its hands full with serious truancy cases and devotes one day per month to the truancy docket. Ultimately, Maksym says, the goal isn’t to be punitive, but to get kids the services they need, ideally before they end up in criminal court. As she puts it, “The court isn’t going to take the case if a kid misses 20 days for a kidney transplant.” m

I am a decorated WWII veteran and no pushover. I am also a Protestant clergyman (as was Mac’s deceased father), so I recognize that Mac’s sense of what is right and good is deeply embedded, from childhood, and is an essential building block of his character. These characteristics, combined with his ample talent, have shaped and been embodied in the witty and insightful yarns he spins as a storyteller, the two excellent videos (Let’s Go to the Farm, for children; and Farm Stories for Families, made from his performances) and now his ongoing project — the motion picture Birth of Innocence. I am convinced that it is a matter of significant importance that Mac be freed to complete his current project, undisturbed. Based on all the information I have examined regarding this case, I find it disturbingly irrational for Mac to be hounded by a state agency as if he were some deliberately malevolent scoundrel.

Brian Dubie dined in the Adirondacks with people like G.W. Bush, whose values are 5000 years behind America’s best [“Fair Game,” August 25]. The Republican Party remains deeply confused about American values. Does Brian Dubie really want to lead us to more holding hands with and dancing for foreign kings? Leadership is critical in these times, but not leadership that’s confused about the right direction! Republicanism is a form of government, but the Republicans that Brian Dubie dined with have confused it with totalitarianism, the most un-American form of government. When no one has market power, free markets are the most efficient way to allocate goods and services. In their confusion, Republicans have forgotten the first phrase of that cornerstone of market theory. Anyone who knows what a free market is knows that G.W. Bush was never a free-market guy. Does that mean that the Republican Party was confused about free markets, or does it mean that they knew but didn’t tell us? Judaism and Christianity are religions that attempt to empower average people and build wealth, but Brian Dubie’s friends have confused it with the worship of money, which leaves us helpless, fighting more and more over less and less. These six soundbites could have been out there as a quick response to Brian Dubie’s postprimary remarks about Democrats being confused. What was out there instead?

WE’RE TRYING TO BRING
LOCAL FOOD SYSTEMS TO A TRULY LOCAL SCALE.
B Y A N DY BROMAG E
Urban farming was already trendy before this summer’s salmonella-taintedegg scare gave consumers another reason to go local. Burlington’s livestock regulations have been a hot topic on the Old North End’s Front Porch Forum; the majority of contributors appear to believe the four-chicken limit is unreasonable. “I live with a lot of people, and we all like eggs, and we have a huge yard, and three or four just won’t cut it,” writes one Old North End resident. “In the summer they’ll lay about once a day, and much less in the winter. Why not let there be one chicken per person in the house, granted that there is adequate yard space? That’s one egg for that person a day.” Burlington’s chicken farmers can procure locally raised eggs at City Market or any one of the city’s seasonal farmers markets. But for Bennington and others like him, raising hens is the ultimate localvore experience. Plus, he says the ﬂavor of fresh eggs, with their deep orange yolks and silky texture, is far superior to anything he can get at a grocery store. “We’re trying to bring local food systems to a truly local scale,” Bennington says. “I’ve seen footage of chicken operations that most people in this area would say are the good places to buy eggs from, and I’m just uncomfortable with 300 chickens living together.” Burlington code enforcement director Bill Ward says there’s “room for discussion” on chicken limits but suggests it will be on a case-by-case basis. Some multiunit apartments could accommodate four birds per unit, he says, while others clearly could not. An example of the latter,
WI L L B EN N I N G T O N , BURLINGTON C HI C K EN O WN ER
he says, is Decker Towers, the 159-unit apartment building at 230 St. Paul Street. If every tenant in the building wanted four hens, there would be more than 600 birds crammed onto the property — an outlandish scenario, but conceivable on paper. “I would think the neighbors on Church Street behind there would be pretty upset that the Perdue family was keeping a farm behind there,” Ward says. To date, Ward’s office has received few, if any, complaints about noise or smell from backyard chickens, he says. Bennington’s overcapacity chicken coop was discovered this past June because a code inspector was on Decatur Street for an unrelated call. But Ward predicts that more chickens could mean more complaints. “There are a lot of people that don’t take proper care of their dogs — just ask the police department,” Ward says. “So, will there be people who don’t take proper care of their chickens? I guarantee it.” City Councilor Bram Kranichfeld (D-2) represents the Old North End and says
several constituents have spoken to him about the issue. Kranichfeld supports raising the limit from four chickens to something higher, but says he’ll leave it to the experts to ﬁnd an appropriate number. “I lived next to a house that had backyard chickens on Hyde Street, and you wouldn’t even know they were there,” he says. “You don’t want to end up with chickens overrunning the neighborhood. But unless the Board of Health thinks it isn’t doable, then I don’t see why we can’t increase it.” The Board of Health, which can advise the city council but can’t change city ordinance, wants to put chickens on its October meeting agenda, chairman Ian Galbraith says. The board’s sole concern: Would more hens pose increased health risks to Burlingtonians? “These things, when they become the fashion, can get out of hand,” says Galbraith, who describes the board as prourban agriculture. “We need to make sure that doesn’t happen.”

ill Bennington had to give up more than half his ﬂock of chickens last spring when a Burlington code enforcement inspector busted him for having too many hens in his yard. The bushy-bearded University of Vermont undergraduate had 10 layer hens outside his apartment on Decatur Street in the Old North End — six more than city ordinance allows. So he and his housemates sent their feathered friends away to a farm and made do with fewer omelettes. Now Bennington is trying to convince the powers-that-be to increase the number of chickens backyard farmers can raise. Zoning ordinance permits no more than four chickens per property — whether it’s a single-family home or multiunit apartment building. Bennington and others argue that’s unfair to renters who share backyards with other families and therefore get fewer eggs each. The Board of Health is poised to take up the issue next month, and a city councilor is backing Bennington’s idea. “I don’t see why I shouldn’t be able to have more chickens,” says Bennington, 22, noting he would love to have 10 hens but would settle for six. “I understand the need for limits, for health or nuisance reasons. But it doesn’t seem like anyone in the city understands why the limit is four.” Today, Bennington keeps four chickens in a homemade coop. They peck at food scraps on a dirt patch outside. Together, the birds lay two to three eggs a day, fewer in winter.

Ambitious Ideas Flow from a New Gallery in Stowe B Y PA MEL A PO LSTON
ou’ve heard of the Fresh Air Fund, which enables urban kids to escape the city for a relatively rural vacay? MIA FEROLETO has come up with a similar concept for artists. Not just to come to Vermont for the landscape, but to maybe paint it, or anything else. Feroleto, 54, owner of the new GREEN + BLUE GALLERY in Stowe — in the former location of the late STEPHEN HUNECK’s gallery on the Mountain Road — envisions artists from elsewhere spending an art-making sojourn in Vermont at the home of an obliging patron, preferably, but not necessarily, in the Stowe area. “I’m in the process of working out the details now,” she says. “I’m writing a questionnaire for the families and the artists to cover things like smoking, allergies, the basic living situation, what
would be off limits, what would be expected.” In exchange for staying with a family, the artist would gift his or her hosts with a work of art. The only expense would be a “modest administrative fee for reproductions and paperwork,” says Feroleto. And during their visit the artists would create work that Feroleto would exhibit at her gallery before their departure. She’s thinking of staging a group show of all the participating artists, as well as creating social occasions for them to mingle with each other. It’s an appealing idea, albeit in its infancy. Feroleto plans to begin advertising it this week on the website of the New York Foundation for the Arts — which she calls “perhaps the number one online resource for artists” — as well as sending word out to “ a large group of galleries I know.”
The Green + Blue Gallery is at 57 Mountain Road in Stowe. Anyone interested in participating in the Adopt an Artist program — artists or potential host families — can contact Mia Feroleto at firstname.lastname@example.org. The Rita Blitt exhibit opens on October 2.
And Feroleto does know a lot of galleries. She curated dozens of shows and organized many events during her years living in Manhattan, and is the founder of Art Walk New York, an annual charity event for the city’s homeless. Though born in Burlington while her father attended the University of Vermont
Illustration for The Furry Feroletos by Erica Harris
Medical School, Feroleto grew up in Connecticut. She graduated from the College of New Rochelle in fine arts and obtained a master’s in lithography at SUNY Albany. Despite these arty degrees, Feroleto worked as a hospital administrator in New York. Eventually, she realized her organizing skills could be applied to the arts. And critters. A lifelong animal-rights activist, Feroleto recalls writing her first letter to the editor in the eighth grade. “I said people should not buy baby chicks and ducks for their children for Easter,” she says. “I’m a very big letter writer.” Recently that passion has been turned into a book project. With illustrator Erica Harris, Feroleto has the first of a planned series of children’s books, titled The Furry Feroletos, in process. The theme: real-life animal rescues. Meanwhile, she’s beginning to promote an upcoming exhibit of drawings and sculpture by Rita Blitt at the Stowe gallery. And it’s not just the artist’s dynamic, abstract aesthetic that interests Feroleto. “She is

Next fall, the group plans to produce another musical; Lawyer mentions Godspell and My Fair Lady as contenders. Rodriguez is also reaching out to the community by offering acting classes for adults and children. The former off-Broadway actor says he is happy to contribute to the St. Albans arts scene. “I love transporting people and taking them on a journey and showing them there’s more to the arts than pizza and videos,” he says.

Running lines in the car with Dad makes things easier for Judy, who took over the role with less than a month before showtime. Luckily, she likes the script, saying, “The show is really well written, and the songs are fun.” “If you look at it, you have [lyricist and playwright Alan Jay] Lerner and [composer Frederick] Loewe and [original director] Moss Hart, whose stagings really come to life,” adds Steve Contompasis. “Going into the sciences and medicine, I hadn’t read as many of the classics as I should have.

Vermont Dancer Pumps Up the Movement in Montpelier By M E g An JAM E S
ancer hanna satterlee had made up her mind to leave Vermont, again, last spring when lorraine neal, owner of
the Contemporary DanCe anD Fitness stuDio in Montpelier, approached her with a crazy idea. Neal was about to embark on a sabbatical in New York City, her first extended time away from the studio since she founded it 36 years ago. Would Satterlee consider taking over her role as artistic director? Satterlee, 26, a Montpelier native who learned to dance in Neal’s studio, had spent time over the past three years in San Francisco, dancing professionally and teaching yoga. Frustrated with the limited dance scene in Vermont, she had all but ruled out staying here for the long haul. Until Neal planted this notion in her head. “It became really clear really fast that this was a great opportunity,” Satterlee says. “Here was my chance to sort of just build the dance community that I hope to have, something that I think can really thrive in Vermont. I can’t expect it to come out of nowhere.” She’s already hit the ground running. Classes began at the Montpelier studio this week with Satterlee at the helm. But she’s got a lot more than dance lessons planned. For starters, Satterlee is rolling out a regular guest-artist workshop series featuring professional dancers from around the state who will teach everything from street jazz to movementstorytelling, from improvisation to Butoh. Artists scheduled for fall workshops include Kelly sturgis, ellen smith ahern, liDa WinFielD, sophia emigh, tiFFany rhynarD, selene Coburn and Kellie lynCh, many of whom Satterlee connected with while working on a N.A.S.A. grant project at the Flynn Center last fall. Studio administrative director allison mann says Satterlee is breathing just the kind of new energy into the studio that Neal had hoped. “When Lorraine decided she would take the job in New York [developing an integrative-arts program at an alternative high school], she realized it would be an opportunity to let go and reshape the studio,” says Mann. Satterlee graduated from Goucher
College in 2006 and spent the next few years dancing with San Francisco companies, returning home periodically to perform with, for example, Vermont’s all purpose DanCe Company. Now, she’s also teaching weekend workshops at the new burlington DanCes at the Chace Mill and performing with Tiffany Rhynard’s Middlebury College-based group Big Action Performance Ensemble, aka big ape. Satterlee envisions the Montpelier space evolving from just a studio into a performance center. She’s planning some salon-style works-in-progress evenings for later in the fall, and will

present a solo by guest-artist Smith Ahern during the capital city’s Art Walk on October 15. “There’s a real booming 20-to-40year-old population here in Montpelier,” Satterlee says. “It’s not just about providing dance classes but about providing evening dance performances and lectures.” Ultimately, she’d love to bring in dancers from around the country to lead workshops and perform. “That’s how I’ve structured my own training,” Satterlee explains. “I’ve found out who I thought was interesting, and I’ve gone to where they work and [learned] from them.” But for now — until she finds more funding — Satterlee will stick with dancers who live close by. As it turns out, there are more of them than she initially thought. Her biggest challenge right now, Satterlee says, is getting the right lighting into the studio space to transform part of it into a theater. “I have these lights, but I don’t know if the building can even hold the wattage,” she says. “I’m dreaming big.” m

the straight dope bY CeCiL adams
The problem is your assumption that a medical condition is just an excuse. Sometimes it might be. But not always. Many medical problems can lead to weight gain, and some of these can legitimately be described as hormonal conditions. One relatively common example is hypothyroidism, which afflicts about 5 percent of the population. Essentially your metabolism slows down, meaning you’re not converting enough food into energy — fatigue is a frequent symptom. You become less active and, assuming your eating habits stay the same, you gain weight. Polycystic ovarian syndrome, or PCOS, which affects 7 percent of women, can also lead to weight gain for reasons that aren’t clear. Many women with PCOS are insulin resistant: Their cells don’t absorb glucose as readily as they used to, and the excess gets stored as fat. Insulin resistance, which can lead to diabetes, is a fairly common problem linked to obesity. But it’s simplistic to say insulin resistance makes you fat. On the contrary, though much

remains to be learned, resistance is generally thought to be the effect rather than the cause of weight gain. After that, relevant hormonal conditions get scarce pretty fast. Cushing’s syndrome, caused by abnormally high levels of the hormone cortisol, can lead to specific types of weight gain including a round “moon face” or a “buffalo hump” of fat on the neck and upper back, but fortunately it’s rare. Human-growthhormone deficiency may result in increased body fat, but that’s a rare ailment, too. Sometimes medications can lead to weight gain. For example, about half of schizophrenic patients and two-thirds of bipolardisorder sufferers are obese due to a combination of illness-related factors and side effects from their antipsychotic medications. Depression can lead to obesity, and so can antidepressants, many of which list weight gain among possible side effects (although most manufacturers report that weight loss is more common). Those who take corticosteroids for asthma or other problems can put on weight as well. If these people stopped taking the problematic medication, I guess they could lose weight, but which would you rather be, fat and happy or thin and sick? Is obesity genetic? Maybe in part. Research suggests 16 percent of the population has a version of the fat-mass- and obesityassociated gene, known as FTO, that increases one’s propensity to put on the pounds. However, the amount of extra weight attributable to this gene is small, just seven pounds on average.
Likewise, a few overweight folks have problems with their leptinreceptor genes, which can lead to early obesity by suppressing the signals that tell the body it’s had enough to eat. Roughly 10 percent of us have an insulinaffecting gene that increases the risk of obesity. Still, while medical or genetic conditions play a role, most serious students of the obesity epidemic are lining up with you, Guy: too much shoveled in, not enough burned off. Truth is, nowadays it’s easy to get fat — all you have to do is eat what’s put in front of you. The percentage of meals eaten away from home has doubled since 1978; during roughly the same period, restaurant portions have been supersized and average U.S. food intake has increased by 200 calories per day.
Our ability to judge what food will do to our waistlines is notoriously bad. In one particularly appalling study from 2006, 193 consumers were asked to estimate, among other things, the calorie content of an order of cheese fries with ranch dressing. Average guess: 869 calories. Actual damage: 3010 calories. Today, one American adult in three is obese, more than double the rate in 1980. You can’t blame hormones for that drastic increase. Do we chalk it up to the American public’s pathetic lack of will power? My inner Puritan says yes. However, there’s no question that the masses are being hammered by a relentless outside force, namely, the everpresent voice asking, “You want fries with that?”
bY h a rrY bL is s
see you’re an adherent of the suck-it-up school of clinical analysis, Guy, which is my default attitude, too. Overweight? Eat less and exercise more. Nervous and depressed? Get a grip. Spurting carotid artery? Nothing some finger pressure and a butterfly bandage won’t solve. However, not everybody shares our gritty pioneer spirit. Thus we’re obliged to plunge into the research literature. Not to worry: The laws of the universe are on our side. There’s no denying your main point: People lose weight when they burn more calories than they consume. It’s the first law of thermodynamics — no matter what you hear about low-calorie intake leading to metabolic shutdown, energy must be conserved. While outright coercion may not be the best way of going about it, you can make anyone lose weight if you get the input-output balance right.
Dear cecil, People diagnosed as clinically obese are sometimes said to have a hormonal condition that makes them unable to lose weight even if they cut calorie intake to a minimum. Surely if you forced them to exercise while making certain their dietary intake and vital signs were healthy, they’d be slim and trim in a couple years. In the end, isn’t obesity always in the mind and not in the hormones?

What’s the Deal With Live Body Painting?
Body paint by Kadina malicbegovic

ceremonial purposes. Here in the U.S., body painting, unless it’s part of military camouflage, is purely a novelty. Malicbegovic, who has an undergraduate fine-arts degree from the University of Vermont, started painting “breathing canvases” in 2005 while looking for ways to make her own art more interesting. Her first exhibit in town featured wine, cheese and painted ladies. “Everyone was, like, ‘Whoa, what the fuck is this?’” Malicbegovic says. “That was it, and I was, like, People are digging it. I want to try again.” She met Leiphart, 29, shortly after her body-painting debut, and they’ve been performing steadily ever since. Malicbegovic says their ascension as performance artists has been “slow motion,” which is fine by her. Malicbegovic, 30, came to Vermont in the mid-1990s with her family after they were forced to flee Bosnia during the war. Along with artistic talent and a penchant for blue language, she brought with her a European sensibility about the human
body. Naked bodies aren’t offensive; they’re meant to be celebrated, she says. Body painting, she insists, is the ultimate vehicle for that appreciation. Freedom and liberation are the motivators that enable most of the models to remove their clothes and get painted by a stranger. The couple’s email inbox is always filled, Malicbegovic says, with messages from individuals seeking the sensation of getting painted. “It’s edgy,” she says. “You know they’re naked, but you can’t see it.” “It doesn’t feel like nudity,” Leiphart adds. The Human Canvas works like this: Before an event, Malicbegovic selects models to paint. They aren’t necessarily skinny, young or traditionally beautiful. Some are men, but most are women. Malicbegovic says she can’t deal with painting over body hair. Sometimes the shows have themes, such as “Enchanted,” in which models were painted to look like fairies and nymphs. Occasionally, the setting
f you’ve ever been to one of Burlington’s main live-music venues — Nectar’s, Club Metronome, Parima — chances are you’ve seen Dinash and DJ Frank Grymes in action. Grymes, aka Drew Leiphart, spins hip-hop-infused electronic music while his partner, Dinash, aka Kadina Malicbegovic, sprays paint on giddy models. The tag-team performance artists, dubbed the Human Canvas, have become ubiquitous, showing up at festivals, dance clubs and even kiddie birthday parties, spinning and spraying and trying to demonstrate that art doesn’t have to be consigned to walls. But why do people want paint slathered all over them? WTF is up with this craft? And how did it come to Vermont? Though its proliferation in Burlington is a recent phenomenon, body painting is a centuries-old art form. In India, mehndi — a washable henna tattoo — has been part of marriage ceremonies since ancient times. Throughout Australia and New Zealand, indigenous people still use clay and pigment to paint themselves for
requires Malicbegovic to prepaint some of the models, depending on the intricacy of the job. Then Leiphart spins music that fits the theme or venue. “I try to pick the best song that will rise up the atmosphere,” he says. Once the models are in place, Malicbegovic covers their nipples and other lady bits with special pasties. Not everyone wants to be completely nude, and not every venue will allow complete nudity, even if it’s shrouded by a coat of paint. Malicbegovic’s toolkit is basic — airbrushes with compressors, stencils, sponges and paintbrushes. The paint she uses is FDA approved and smudge proof. Some models try to keep it on as long as possible; others wash it off soon after Malicbegovic is finished. People are free to do with her art what they want, she says. In fact, she prefers the inherent evanescence of body painting to the permanence that comes with coloring a physical canvas. The body-paint models aren’t exactly blank canvases, Malicbegovic says. They often have their own ideas about what they want splashed on their bodies. Recently, she wanted to paint a psychedelic scene on a model, but the woman asked to be painted into a corset. Malicbegovic capitulated because, she says, “She can’t wear my imagination or my creation if she doesn’t have it in her.” While Leiphart insists the work isn’t meant to be erotic, many models can’t help but get turned on when the shots of paint hit their bodies. This is part of the allure for Malicbegovic. “Their nipples get hard,” she says. “They’re excited and scared, and everyone always says they need a shot [of alcohol].” m

Guard Chaplain Lt. Col. Calvin Kemp, the Vietnam veteran and resident of nearby Stannard who led the short, Christian service, seemed also to know the meaning. I tried to glean it as he read snatches of Scripture evoking the Lord’s protection, nations in disarray, grief and a kind of pious ambition. The majestic 121st Psalm opened the ceremony: “I lift mine eyes unto the hills. From whence cometh my help?” — only rendered in an American vernacular version “I look up to the mountains. Where can I find help?” “My help comes from the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth,” the congregation — for now it was a congregation — answered. Kemp read from Isaiah: “On this mountain He will remove the veil of grief covering all people and the mask covering all nations. He will swallow up

The God of Jacob is our stronghold.” From the New Testament, he chose portions from the Gospel according to Matthew, and from Philippians: “…forgetting the things which are behind, and stretching forward to the things which are before, I press on toward the goal unto the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.” All this culminated in his sermon, which Kemp called “Victory.” It was not about the kind of victory Tristan strove for in life — victory on the playing field or even on the battlefield. This was the victory wrested from death through the “poli psy” is a monthly column by Judith levine. Got a comment on this story? contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
martyrdom and resurrection of Jesus Christ. “Don’t let your eyes trick you. Don’t let your aching heart deceive you,” Kemp said. “This is not a time of despair or hopeless defeat. This is a time for victory. This is not about death at all. It’s about everlasting life.” The assembled bowed their heads for the Lord’s Prayer; they said amen. I remained silent, part of me envious of a faith that could declare despair irrelevant and push aside politics to find fellowship. But another part of me was angry. In imagining Tristan’s soul someplace blissfully beyond place, how were we dealing with his shot-up body lying on a dusty Afghan mountainside near the Pakistani border? Adjutant General Michael Dubie and Gov. Jim Douglas stepped up to this task. Dubie awarded Tristan several military honors, including a Bronze Star and a Purple Heart; Douglas presented Tristan’s parents with the Vermont Patriots Medal. Valor, honor, freedom: These were the words from which we were to glean reasons for Tristan’s sacrifice. Outside in the white sunshine, the honor guard stepped smartly carrying Tristan’s coffin to the hearse. The other servicemen and -women saluted. A slender,
dark-haired woman in jeans and a sleeveless shirt stood in the doorway and wiped her eyes — Tristan’s girlfriend. His grandparents held hands. His younger brother looked lost in his black suit. The family was loaded into a school bus. The hearse pulled out, with the bus behind it, followed by a military convoy of black Chevy Suburbans and, slowly gathering from the parking lot and surrounding

streets, scores of cars and pickup trucks. On the way to the Main Street Cemetery, Tristan’s body passed the Memorial Building, its inside walls inscribed with the names of Hardwickians who had fought in the Revolutionary War, the War of 1812, the Spanish-American War, the “War of Rebellion” and “the World War.” It passed the American Legion’s massive new granite memorial,
over the porch of the old Hardwick Inn, reading, “Our Hero, We Will Never Forget You. Rest in Peace.” I didn’t follow on to the cemetery. The burial felt too intimate to include me, a stranger. Instead, I made a U-turn and drove back to our house. The New York Times was on the kitchen table, headlined by President Obama’s “withdrawal” of combat troops from Iraq, the closure of
Operation Iraqi Freedom and the launch of a new phase, Operation New Dawn. On the radio, a BBC reporter said not much was changing on the ground. He called the events a “rebranding” of the war and said he’d already picked up an Operation New Dawn coffee cup. Another lead story detailed revelations of corruption in the Afghan Bank, run by a close associate of President Hamid Karzai, who has declined to investigate his friend’s “unorthodox financial dealings,” including “lending tens of millions of dollars to himself.” On the same page of the paper, a small item reported the deaths of five American troops in Afghanistan on Tuesday, the day of Tristan’s wake. A week after the funeral, the banner has been rolled up and the flags taken down from the telephone poles. Beside the Legion’s monument, Old Glory is back at full staff. “Tristan Southworth” has not yet been inscribed under the Gulf Wars section of the Legion’s memorial, where there’s room for only a few more names. More monuments will be needed, anyway. Since this one was constructed eight years ago, the U.S. has engaged in two more wars. m

Encore, Encore! The 2010-11 performing-arts preview B Y PAMEL A POL STON
e’ve been poring over the new performing-arts brochures and our first reaction is: whew. From the wealth of onstage options in the upcoming season, it’s hard to tell the economy has been scary. Presenters all over the state and beyond are bringing in as many shows as ever, from as far away as India, Africa and Estonia to as close as the next town over. Better yet, the quality matches the quantity. And, rather than taking this for granted, can we take a moment for gratitude? Presenting the performing arts is a risky business in the best of times, particularly for visionary artistic directors who believe in challenging, as well as entertaining, their audiences. But liveshow aficionados in Vermont have to admit: We’ve come to expect a full platter of professional-level shows in this tiny state, and it’s thanks to a dedicated handful of presenting organizations that we get them. Truly great performers — from musicians to magicians, actors to acrobats — come to share their passions with us, even in the dead of winter. OK, OK, you’re thinking, we’re grateful. So, what’s new this year?
Glad you asked, since this issue of Seven Days is all about telling you. Or, more accurately, sampling the season to come. But first, “what’s new” can be answered in more ways than one. At the Chandler Center for the Arts in Randolph, for example, it means extensive renovations that bring the historic, 103-year-old venue into fire-code and ADA compliance, making shows and exhibits accessible to patrons of all abilities. At Middlebury College’s Mahaney Center for the Arts, some new events on the calendar are related to something old: what marketing manager Liza Sachelli Lloyd calls a “happy serendipity” of 40th anniversaries. Two of them are performance related. Pianist Diana Fanning — “a musician of international renown who happens to live in Middlebury,” says Lloyd — celebrates 40 years of performing professionally with a special concert in November. The Jupiter String Quartet, winners of an Avery Fisher Career Grant and considered one of the strongest
young string quartets in the country, will join Fanning, as will Midd affiliate artist and cellist Dieuwke Davydov. In February, the center will mark the 40th anniversary of the installation of Mead Chapel’s Gress-Miles organ — “one of the best in the state,” boasts Lloyd. If you want to know what a rising-star organist looks, and sounds, like, go to Nathan Laube’s concert. And if you like instruments with really big pipes, get there early for the tour with professor emeritus Emory Fanning (who happens to be Diana’s husband). In the Burlington area, personnel changes at several performing-arts organizations constitute something of a generational shift. At the Vermont Mozart Festival, Israeli conductor/composer Gil Shohat replaces founder and 36-year director Melvin Kaplan, a move the board hopes will help pull the organization out of financial difficulty. At the Vermont Youth Orchestra, Ronald Braunstein steps into a music-director role strongly shaped by Troy Peters, who moved
to a position in San Antonio. Neither of these newcomers, however, will actually begin their tenures until next spring, so their influences are yet unknown. Seven Days interviewed John Killacky, the new executive director of the Flynn Center, earlier this summer. He took over in June from cofounder and ED of 30 years Andrea Rogers, though the programming remains the bailiwick of seasoned artistic director Arnie Malina. At the University of Vermont’s Lane Series, Natalie Neuert ascended from manager to director when longtime director Jane Ambrose retired earlier this year. The two had worked hand-in-hand on programming for years and mostly accepted with each other’s ideas, Neuert says, “though of course sometimes we disagreed.” So, audiences will not see a completely different direction at the Lane but rather a continuation of the transition that began years ago: a move away from strictly classical music to, as the
Performing Arts offering is a Halloween extravaganza: the 1920 version of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. An act “of unparalled beauty” that Neuert specifically pursued is, she concedes, the hardest to describe: John the Revelator, coming to the Recital Hall next spring. Called a “21st-century mass” and commissioned following the 9/11 terrorist attacks, the music was composed by Phil Kline for chorus and string ensemble. The two ensembles that performed the world premiere of John the Revelator in New York City’s Winter Garden are reprising it in Burlington: respectively, the all-male early-music vocalists Lionheart, and Ethel, a string quartet that includes Vermont violinist Mary Rowell. Though both groups have performed at the Lane in the past, Neuert says, “Still, I felt this was a reach for us.” The same evening, she adds, will debut a new movement for organ (more big pipes!) commissioned by the Lane Series, Portland Ovations of Maine and Friends of the Kotzschmar Organ, performed by UVM’s David Neiweem. “We now have the Jane Ambrose Commissioning Fund,” Neuert points out, “so we’ll be looking at doing more new music.”

When it was first produced, in 1949, Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman defied expectations: Here was a high tragedy about Joe Average struggling to pay off his mortgage. Sixty-one years later, the tale of 63-year-old family man Willy Loman may seem dated in some ways, but its theme of one man’s American dream and its smackdown by reality is as relevant as ever. Disrespected at work, disappointed in his slacker sons, Loman is “the eternally adolescent American male who goes to the grave without ever learning who he is,” as Frank Rich wrote in 1984. For all these reasons, Salesman is a go-to choice for actors who want to challenge themselves. When the directors of the Weston Playhouse asked Christopher Lloyd what role he’d most like to play, Willy Loman was his answer. Everyone who lived through the ’80s most likely knows Lloyd as the crazy, time-traveling inventor from the Back to the Future movies. (He also had a long run on “Taxi” and has appeared in films ranging from One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest to Piranha 3D.) The actor, whose brother Sam Lloyd lives in Weston, has stayed active in the theater. Lloyd’s choice to take on Miller in what a New York magazine blogger called a “way-offBroadway” venue has made waves. In a recent New York Times piece, Dave Itzkoff described 71-year-old Lloyd as approaching the role “with profound seriousness, knowing he might never get the chance again.” Locals, however, get several chances to see him this month as the Weston production tours the state.
On her new album, Õÿö, Angélique Kidjo (left) sings a joyful, Afrobeat version of Curtis Mayfield’s soul classic “Move On Up,” featuring the voices of Bono and John Legend. In the track’s video, the regal, 50-year-old singer with the shorn head is riveting — even though she’s surrounded by the colorful costumes and infectious hip swinging of Bill T. Jones’ dancers from the Broadway musical Fela! No matter how much she mixes it up, culturally speaking, Beninese singer Kidjo can rely on her powerful alto and stage presence to work a crowd. On Õÿö, she performs songs made famous by one of her role models, South African diva Miriam Makeba, but also works of James Brown and Aretha Franklin, and even a Bollywood melody. They all represent early influences on the singer, who started performing publicly at age 6. Kidjo left her native land for Paris when she was in her twenties — and now lives in Brooklyn — but the Grammy winner has remained an activist for African women’s rights and other causes; her Batonga Foundation funds scholarships and builds secondary schools for girls. Kidjo’s voice can caress a standard like “Summertime,” muscle its way through a hand-clap a cappella number, and do justice to a soul anthem. She’s been known to invite her listeners up on stage: The New York Times described a show last March as becoming “an amateur dance-off, utopian in its welcoming exuberance.” Join that exuberance at the Hop and Flynn next spring.
Death of a Salesman
current season illustrates, about half “other” music. “There is a need to continue to serve longtime Lane subscribers and an opportunity to reach out to new ones,” Neuert says. With the exception of some larger acts that the organization occasionally presents with the Flynn on the MainStage, the foundation of Lane programming is music that sounds extraordinary in the acoustically perfect, 300-seat UVM Recital Hall. “For me the starting point is always that word ‘chamber,’” Neuert explains. “Chamber music means a lot of things, many genres; because of our hall, what we do well is intimacy.” Perhaps for the same reason, the Lane is also known for excellence — as Neuert suggests, “really good music that can entertain, transform, take you on a journey.” This year that journey includes such shows as Estonian early/ folk music from a robe-wearing choir called Heinavanker, a collaboration of soul singer Mavis Staples and Brit folkrocker Billy Bragg, Americana stylings from the rootsy Wiyos and Red Molly, a handful of solo classical pianists, and, yes, several chamber ensembles. Returning to the Lane — at the Fleming Museum — are faves Devil Music Ensemble, a trio of inventive musicians who write and perform original soundtracks to old silent films. This year’s

Sweden seems to be suddenly hot here: Think of best-selling novelist Stieg Larsson or pop singer Robyn. But the increasingly acclaimed Swedish classical pianist Niklas Sivelöv is not just riding a wave. A well-known soloist and composer in his own country, Sivelöv often performs unusual, on-the-spot improvisations on the compositions of his mid-18th-century compatriot Carl Bellman. “Shockingly beautiful” is how University of Vermont Lane Series director Natalie Neuert describes the improvisations, which she heard live at the Scandinavia House in New York City last January. “The basis is 18th century, so it has a Bachian feel. You’ve never really heard anything quite like it in a concert.” Sivelöv is a Bach specialist who garnered warm reviews for a series of all-Bach concerts he gave last January at Bargemusic in Brooklyn. In addition to selections from the Baroque master’s The Well-Tempered Clavier, Sivelöv’s Lane Series program will include Chopin favorites and Argentinian dances by Ginestera, as well as Schumann’s impassioned Sonata no. 2 in G Minor. Neuert scheduled a total of three classical pianists this season to showcase the UVM Recital Hall’s “fantastic” Steinway concert grand and “clear-as-a-bell” acoustics. Why the Swede? “There are a lot of solo pianists out there,” Neuert notes. But when she saw him, Sivelöv had a real ability to connect with his audience — whether through the “quirky,” vintage three-piece suit he wore or his playing style, which prompted the New York Times to dub him “the extrovert.” “His performance style and his charm and his entire being just kind of radiate this intelligence,” Neuert promises.

thE KlEzmAticS Klez•mer (klez-mer) — 1. a Jewish instrumentalist especially of traditional Eastern European music; 2. the music played by klezmorim. Origin: Yiddish. While the above may be the definition of traditional Jewish klezmer music, it is far too narrow a category to encapsulate New York-based band the Klezmatics. For more than 20 years, the eclectic bunch has drawn from African, Arab, Latin and Balkan world-music traditions. At times, their music is inflected with punk, jazz and classical tones, making them anything but a traditional folk band. Over the years, the band has collaborated with artists as varied as violinist Itzhak Perlman, African American Jewish gospel singer Joshua Nelson, playwright Tony Kushner and Pilobolus Dance Theater. In 2007, the Klezmatics took home a Grammy for Best Contemporary World Music album for their most recent studio album, 2006’s Wonder Wheel. The album — seven years in the making — is an homage to Woody Guthrie, infusing Dust Bowl ballads with klezmer style. The Klezmatics are the only klezmer band to win a Grammy. Not only does the band’s music represent the Jewish Diaspora through thundering clarinets, whining violins and piercing accordions, but it also serves to draw in listeners from around the globe with common themes and rhythms. You don’t have to be Jewish to appreciate a good drinking song or socialist anthem. Or a good time. ira Allen chapel, UVm, April 17, 7:30 p.m. $20/25.

13 MOST BEAUTIFUL … SONGS FOR ANDY WARHOL’S SCREEN TESTS Once upon a time — OK, it was 1964 — iconic American pop-art provocateur Andy Warhol began shooting a series of “screen tests” in his fabled New York studio the Factory. His subjects ranged from virtual unknowns to some of the most “beautiful” and enchanting young stars of the day, including Lou Reed, Dennis Hopper and Edie Sedgwick. Those four-minute ﬁlms, nearly 500 in total, were shot in black and white and had no sound. Until now. Acclaimed indie duo Dean & Britta (both formerly of Luna) have crafted a suite of new music, collectively titled 13 Most Beautiful … Songs for Andy Warhol’s Screen Tests, to accompany, well, 13 of Warhol’s shorts. The project, commissioned by the Pittsburgh-based Warhol Museum, has spurred a critically acclaimed new double album. But when it comes to experiencing what makes this union of sight and sound so special, nothing compares with the duo’s live performance, which Toronto’s Globe and Mail calls, “At once beguiling, witty and poignant … a moody, evocative soundscape.”

Miss Vermont says,
“Tis the season to save big on a holiday party at the Firehouse!”
You can’t beat Macbeth for a story about the lust for power. But Shakespeare’s bloody drama certainly takes on a different kind of intensity in the SITI Company’s version, which Variety magazine calls “a bullet of a play.” This one is set in a warehouse where a group of 1940s-era radio-play actors come together to deliver their lines for the production. But “what begins to happen is the play becomes alive for them in an amazing and almost haunted way,” describes Margaret Lawrence, programming director at the Hopkins Center. “They, and you, become gripped in the play, and the audience almost becomes a kind of nervous system for the actors. The energy is palpable.” Lawrence says she’s brought the New York City-based ensemble — under the artistic direction of MacArthur “genius grant” winner Anne Bogart — to the Hop three times before. One of those productions was A Midsummer Night’s Dream set in the American Dust Bowl of the 1930s. “She loves classics,” Lawrence says of Bogart, “but set in other landscapes, both geographically and psychologically.” SITI Company is also known internationally for combining Bogart’s “viewpoint” style of acting with the Suzuki method of actor training developed by company cofounder Tadashi Suzuki. “It’s a way of presenting yourself very physically,” Lawrence explains. “You’re part of a very active, dynamic set of relationships on stage. For the audience, it creates a very exciting thing that draws you in.” Drawn into Macbeth? Could get edgy.

There’s never been a better time to run away with the circus, or at least snag a seat to ohh and ahh at one. Or three: World-class acts Cirque Éloize, Cirque Mechanics and Cirque Le Masque all swing through our neck of the woods next year. The ﬁrst two have previously graced the Flynn stage and are back — perhaps by popular demand? Meanwhile, Long Island-based Cirque Le Masque, coming to the Paramount, has a new bag of tricks up its sleeve. The daredevil troupe aims to astound with graceful feats of strength in ﬂying-silk acts, gaspinducing trapeze turns and tandem tumbling. But the intriguing premises of its shows set this cirque apart. In Carnivale, a world-weary young girl harboring dreams of becoming a circus artist travels to “the ultimate party town,” Rio de Janeiro. Full of gravity-defying antics by acrobats, physical comedians, aerialists and character actors, the performance captures the spellbinding lure of the circus tradition. Cirque Le Masque’s newest show, Evolution, is also out of this world. Imagine aliens touching down in the middle of a circus show, and you begin to get the gist. Touring internationally since the mid-’90s, the traveling spectacle owned by brothers Dennis and Bernie Schussel touts performers with names such as Cirque du Soleil on their résumés. Not an artist himself, Dennis Schussel wasn’t about to let the circus pass him by. His philosophy? “If you can’t do it, own it,” he jokes. And if you can’t join it, see it. Cirque Éloize, Flynn MainStage, February 18 & 19, 8 p.m. $27-47. Cirque Mechanics, Flynn MainStage, March 11, 8 p.m. $27-47. Cirque Le Masque, Paramount Theatre, May 13, 8 p.m. $31.50-41.50.

ALFRED HITCHCOCK’S THE 39 STEPS Spies. Murder. Romance. An onstage plane crash. The 39 Steps is the theatrical adaptation of Alfred Hitchcock’s classic ﬁlm that’s been a hit on Broadway and is suddenly all over Vermont. The fast-paced comedy-thriller ran this summer at the Weston Playhouse as well as at the Depot Theatre in Westport, N.Y. It’s coming up in November at Northern Stage, and in May the Broadway tour makes a stop at the Flynn. You don’t have to know the ﬁlm to enjoy this two-time Tony Award-winning play, though the script hews closely to Hitchcock’s masterpiece, simultaneously celebrating and spooﬁng it. Four cast members play more than 140 characters, ﬂipping their identities seamlessly — and hilariously — from vaudevillian to cop to traveling lingerie salesman. As the play begins, protagonist Richard Hannay is attending a show at a London music hall when shots are ﬁred and the audience breaks into chaos. He takes home a woman who tells him she’s a spy. When the woman is fatally stabbed the next morning, Hannay ﬁnds himself the prime suspect in her murder, and he quickly becomes embroiled in a mysterious plot to uncover British military secrets. He hits the road to save his life. Despite its cinematic setting, the play is produced with minimal, but inventive, set design. The magic, the critics are saying, is in the theatrics. Find out what all the buzz — and those 39 steps — are about this season. Northern Stage production at Briggs Opera House, November 3-21, various times. $30-56. Broadway national tour, Flynn MainStage, May 13, 8 p.m. $43-50.

When choreographer Tamar Rogoff ﬁrst saw Gregg Mozgala, Mozgala wasn’t a dancer; he was an actor playing the lead role in an off-Broadway production of Romeo and Juliet. Mozgala’s cerebral palsy gave him an awkward gait — he walked on his toes, knees bent inward, his hips swinging from side to side. But Rogoff was captivated by his energy onstage and approached him afterward about working with her. “His body was so responsive to the text,” she writes in an email about the performance where she spotted him two and a half years ago. “He was so alive and physically present.” Less than a year later, Mozgala was moving his body in ways he’d never thought possible and starring in a dance Rogoff created for him, Diagnosis of a Faun, which comes to Middlebury College’s Mahaney Center for the Arts next month. In it, Mozgala plays a 5000-year-old faun — that is, half-man and half-goat — interacting with doctors and dancers in both the operating room of a modern-day hospital and the forest. Mozgala’s transformation wasn’t easy. In addition to daily rehearsals, Rogoff coached him through intensive body work and movement exercises, essentially retraining his muscles so he could keep his alignment and balance in check. “I’m sure no other choreographer and dancer have ever worked like we do. Movement just doesn’t move through my body like other people’s,” Mozgala wrote on Rogoff’s performance blog during the initial rehearsal period. “This is, of course, why Tamar was interested in working with me.” What they achieved together isn’t just a transformation of his body; it’s a work of art.
LUCINDA CHILDS’ DANCE Three decades have passed since choreographer Lucinda Childs’ definitive collaborative work, Dance, premiered in New York City, but the original cast, including Childs, will be right there on the Flynn stage — in the form of ghostly video projections — accompanying the new cast as they dance the piece live next April. The video component is nothing new. In the original production, a collaboration between Childs and composer Philip Glass, artist Sol LeWitt filmed the dancers from various perspectives and overlaid the footage on the live performance, creating a kind of multidimensional study of movement. Now the work incorporates a whole new dimension: the passing of time. The individual components of Dance are as minimalist as its title suggests. Dancers dressed all in white move swiftly across the stage, entering and exiting on a grid. Glass’ music is almost hypnotizing in its repetition and reiteration. The movements haven’t changed much from those in the video of the original cast, but when the large images are projected behind the live performers, you get the impression each dancer is accompanied by a giant alter ego. That performance at the Flynn is the second half of a double bill; the first is a solo piano concert by Glass. He’ll play from his early works, including Einstein on the Beach, Satyagraha and Metamorphosis 1-5. Attend both parts of the evening, with a talk in between, and you’ll have a chance to immerse yourself in the work of two legendary American artists. Plus, you’ll get a reduced ticket price for the pair. Flynn MainStage, April 2; Glass at 7 p.m., Dance at 9 p.m. $24-$40.

POPOVICH COMEDY PET THEATER When it comes to family entertainment, you can’t go wrong with circus arts, comedy and dogs doing tricks. But Russian-born circus performer Gregory Popovich has a secret weapon: the reputedly untrainable house cat. Images of kitties riding bicycles lure Vegas tourists to the V Theater in the Planet Hollywood resort, where they find Popovich and his human troupe — which includes his daughter — juggling, clowning, and cavorting with cats, dogs, ferrets and geese. While the felines do not, as attested by reviewers at Yelp.com, actually pedal cycles, they do show off their natural grace in feats of agility. And every single one of them was rescued from a shelter. That story has landed Popovich and his pets on “The Tonight Show,” “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon,” “America’s Got Talent” and the Animal Planet network. Next March, a collaborative effort of the Chandler Center for the Arts and the Lebanon Opera House will bring the Comedy Pet Theater to the Upper Valley. Not for the first time. When CPT appeared at the Chandler in 2005 and 2006, says executive director Rebecca McMeekin, “the show was wildly popular with the audience.” After Popovich got his gig in Vegas, she notes, he took a break from touring the show, “and when it came back, the artist fee had more than doubled. The show had gotten too big and expensive for Chandler to present and still keep ticket prices at an affordable level.” So McMeekin and Heather Clow, executive director of the Lebanon Opera House, teamed up to bring the CPT to the larger venue, giving local kids a chance to take a break from Lolcats and check out the real thing. Lebanon Opera House, March 5, 11 a.m. & 3 p.m. $15-20 or $40 family rate. SEVENDAYSVT.COM
KHMER ARTS ENSEMBLE, THE LIVES OF GIANTS Take a moment to let this sink in: Your culture has been annihilated, its music, dance, art and theater traditions wiped out. Most of its practitioners and teachers have been systematically killed. It may seem far fetched, but this is exactly what happened in Cambodia in the 1970s when the communist Khmer Rouge attempted to purge anything they considered “elite.” One of the survivors of that holocaust is choreographer, dancer and vocalist Sophiline Cheam Shapiro. Born in 1967 and just a child during the Pol Pot regime, she was one of the first to attend Phnom Penh’s newly reopened fine-arts school after the country’s civil war ended. She devoted herself to mastering complex, 1000-year-old dance movements, whose grace and delicacy belie the strength required to perform them. Later, Cheam Shapiro started her own school, the Khmer Arts Academy, to preserve and teach these traditions. She also maintains a school and residence in Long Beach, Calif., home to many Cambodian refugees. “She is at the very leadership of a profound movement to preserve classical dance and music,” says Margaret Lawrence, programming director of the Hopkins Center at Dartmouth College. Cheam Shapiro’s performances retain “that beautiful, glittering, slow-moving art form,” Lawrence notes, but she also uses it, with very subtle changes, to reflect on her country’s history over the last 40 years. Over the last two decades, Cheam Shapiro has earned international renown, collaborated with artists such as Americans John Zorn and Peter Sellars, and won prestigious awards, including the National Heritage Fellowship. The striking elegance of Cambodian costumes, movement and music has struck a chord the world over. So, too, has the country’s story, which from this remove can be told as both a cautionary tale and a parable about the resilient human spirit. In its current production, Cheam Shapiro’s 30-member Khmer Arts Ensemble does just that through The Lives of Giants, about a 10-headed despotic king. Hopkins Center, September 28 & 29, 7 p.m. $25-37. Flynn MainStage, October 1, 8 p.m. $22-38.

thE WiYoS AND RED mollY New York City’s Wiyos adopted their curious name from the most notorious of old New York’s street gangs, the Why-ohs. Though they hardly resemble that bloodthirsty consortium of thieves, murderers and scoundrels, the band has earned a reputation as one of the baddest old-time outfits around, trading in early American roots music performed with reckless, vaudevillian abandon. If the Wiyos are rough and tumble, Red Molly are sweet and refined … and funny. The New Yorkbased, all-female trio has risen to wide acclaim, especially in traditional-music circles, for a cunning take on high-lonesome bluegrass and gospel music that belies the women’s urban origins. Or, as the Boston Globe puts it, “It’s as if their notes are carried to you on the crisp air of the Ozarks.” The Wiyos — who performed at the Lane Series’ summer Film and Music Series four years ago — return with their three lady friends next month.

The Taste Maker Matt Rogers: Making Burlington cooler, one band at a time B y D an Bol l es
SEVENDAYSvt.com 09.15.10-09.22.10 SEVEN DAYS 36 FEATURE
usic scenes can be kind of like the weather: Everybody complains, but nobody does anything about them. In the Queen City, that complaint takes the form of a familiar refrain: “There are never any good shows here.” Of course, that gripe is not entirely grounded — for one thing, this writer would be unemployed if it were. The truth is, there are scads of good shows in and around Burlington, practically on a nightly basis, which is all the more impressive when you consider the area’s population. Still, if you’re the kind of person who checks the calendars of clubs in major cities, it’s hard to see the embarrassment of riches enjoyed by our urban neighbors and not feel a twinge of jealousy. That goes double when you discover great bands touring from Boston to Montréal — or vice versa — and leapfrogging our lakeside hamlet. Frustration can turn to outright anger when said band takes an off day between the cities — looking at you, Joanna Newsom. But one local promoter refuses to consider this situation as inevitable as Vermont winters. His name is Matt Rogers. Rogers, 25, is the founder of MSR Presents, a small, Burlington-based music booking and promotions company that has been responsible for unleashing a wealth of ultrahip indie music on Burlington’s eager collective ears over the past year. The upstart company’s résumé ranges from up-and-coming bands, such as Phantogram and Bear in Heaven, to breakout stars such as Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros, the Tallest Man on Earth, and the Morning Benders. New Jersey native Rogers is a recent graduate of St. Michael’s College, where he majored in business with a minor in management. Both disciplines come in handy helming MSR Presents. Unlike many liberal-arts-school grads, Rogers is putting his degree to good use and actually working in his field of study. His “day job”? Assistant tour manager to James Taylor. (Yes, that James Taylor.)
Rogers travels regularly for his job, often for months at a time — he missed this spring’s whole run of MSR shows because he was touring New Zealand, Australia and Asia. He has circled the globe with Taylor and witnessed the day-to-day, behind-the-scenes minutiae of touring that most of us never think about. The experience has given Rogers an insider’s perspective. He credits it with the revelation that would lead to the birth of MSR Presents: Namely, that this stuff is surprisingly easy. “What put me over the top was seeing how shows are actually put on,” Rogers says recently over coffee at a Burlington café. “When you see it on that scale, and then downsize it for small venues, it really isn’t that hard.” Rogers also started MSR Presents because he shared the gripe of other local music fans. Tired of traveling to Boston or Montréal to see shows that weren’t coming to Burlington, he realized it would be much easier simply to contact the bands and line up gigs here. “I just sort of saw this void,” he says, referring to the oft-cited, and perhaps misperceived, dearth of stops by midlevel indie-rock bands in Burlington. “I mean, they do a great job, but there are only so many shows that Higher Ground can bring in.” Rogers began emailing bands and agents, gradually learning the ins and outs of tour routing and booking. At Club Metronome, in September 2009, MSR Presents presented its first show, featuring Brooklyn-based indie darlings Here We Go Magic. The lineup also included Burlington’s Vacant Lots and DJ Disco Phantom, an eclectic turntablist who spins at most MSR events. That first show flew under most local fans’ radar, and failed financially. But Rogers’ next effort, at Metronome with Seattle greats Grand Archives, was better received. Then, in November, he pulled off a coup: a triple bill featuring Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros, Fool’s Gold, and Local Natives.

“That was a home run, right there,” says Rogers, smiling. “I don’t know if we’ll ever get a better three-band bill than that.” That’s not an understatement. Whether by savvy design or sheer dumb luck, Rogers has a tendency to unearth relatively unknown bands at precisely the moment before they blow up. Sharpe and Co. are currently among the country’s hottest indie bands and sold out the Higher Ground Ballroom earlier this summer. The Morning Benders, who played a sold-out gig at Winooski’s The Monkey House in April, will return to play Higher Ground in November. This fall, Here We Go Magic will tour with both Dr. Dog and indie legends Built to Spill. And the list goes on. “I get really consumed when I’m looking for bands,” Rogers says. “But the real thing is that I just look for bands I’m really into and will personally be excited to see.” He adds that he’s particularly amped for the show he’ll present this Thursday: David Bazan at Club Metronome.

Rogers’ enthusiasm has proved infectious. He says he regularly speaks with fans at MSR shows who weren’t familiar with that night’s bands and came solely because of his company’s growing reputation. That rep has translated into plenty of fresh faces in increasingly packed crowds. “I’ll go to MSR shows now and hardly recognize anyone in the crowd. And that never happens in Burlington,” says Nick Mavodones, Higher Ground’s boxoffice manager and the booking agent at Burlington hot spot Radio Bean. Mavodones is also the founder of Angioplasty Media, another independent promotions company that has brought in its fair share of exciting music of late. The two operations have begun collaborating on shows, most recently to present School of Seven Bells at Metronome. “I want MSR to be a communitybased thing,” says Rogers. He donates a percentage of show profits — when there are profits — to local charities after each show. And Rogers makes a point of including local bands as support whenever possible. “That’s such a big thing for local bands,” says Paddy Reagan, a local musician and booking agent at The Monkey House. “Opening for your favorite bands can really motivate you as a musician, and it can help turn new audiences on to you as well.” Rogers knows that firsthand. “Doing this has turned me on to so many awesome local bands, too,” he acknowledges. MSR Presents has a predictably strong slate of shows lined up for this fall (see sidebar). And Rogers hints at more to come. But he stops just short of suggesting MSR Presents could eventually replace his gig with James Taylor as a primary source of income. “The thing is, it’s really tough to make a buck doing this. If I break even, I’m pumped,” he says. “But we’re really just getting started. And it’s still just fresh and fun. Hopefully, people continue to catch on and I can do this for a long time.” m 2v-JSC091510.indd 1

ot many restaurateurs can say they met their business and life partners between costume changes. That’s the case of Mucuy Bolles and Christian Makay, who got to know each other on a recent tour with the stage version of Disney’s The Lion King. A dancer who’d already done the show on Broadway, Bolles had to race through 15 costumes as different jungle animals. Makay, the property master, was there to help. Now the pair, both 40, are engaged. And they’re bringing their theatrical flair to a new venture: Three Stones Restaurant, which they opened last December in Brattleboro. There are no jungle animals in the Brattleboro dining car that houses Three Stones — and no train décor, either. Coowners Bolles and Makay have transformed the space into a cozy Yucatecan hacienda. Pottery and Mayan-inspired paintings decorate the walls. Bolles greets diners in an airy, embroidered garment called a huipil. It’s all in keeping with the cuisine of chef Alejandra Bolles — Mucuy’s mother, a native of Ticul, Mexico. The senior Bolles learned to cook on three hot stones in her grandmother’s thatched hut, the smoke escaping through its stick walls. Makay plans to evoke the hut in the train car by adding straw to the ceiling of the dining room, using the set-design expertise he gained during his years backstage. Switching from a life in the theater to one in the restaurant business is more common than one might think. While there’s truth in the stereotype of bored performer-waiters hoping for their big break, some theater folk have found themselves falling in love with the food industry. Take Deirdre Heekin and Caleb Barber. The couple, who met at Middlebury College, headed to Italy after their wedding to start a dance company. Instead, they were swept up in the Tuscan food culture, which they have since brought to Vermont in the form of their esteemed restaurant, Osteria Pane e Salute in Woodstock. As for Makay, he studied hospitality before following his passion into technical theater, and he’d always dreamed of opening an inn or restaurant in Vermont. When the time came, he seized the

opportunity to help his future motherin-law share her Mayan cuisine with America. Mucuy Bolles says the backbreaking work of starting a restaurant seemed easy to her. She leapt into the world of dance straight from high school, joining Eliot Feld’s troupe, now called Ballet Tech. In her twenties, Bolles performed with the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater and traveled Europe, Asia and Egypt. “When I go back to visit [the Alvin Ailey troupe], I’m like, ‘Wow, that was me!’” she says. “I think it was probably the most stressful and the most fulfilling part of my career at the same time.” The brutal life of a touring professional dancer, running from airport to theater on ravaged feet, taught Bolles LISTEN IN ON LOCAL FOODIES...
perseverance, she says. “I’m used to working really hard, and hard work doesn’t faze me at all.” Makay, who held myriad backstage jobs on theatrical and concert tours, adds that the couple’s experience on the boards has taught them the value of theatricality at their restaurant. He compares the kitchen to a backstage area, and diners to a waiting audience. “It’s just like theater — as soon as you exit off the wings, it’s chaos,” he says. “The whole production is basically the same.” And it is a production. Bolles emphasizes that her family is trying to create a cultural experience by sharing Mayan art, dress, language and food. The menu includes a glossary of Spanish and Mayan terms.

Bolles is particularly proud that her mother makes all the restaurant’s corn tortillas, or uah, by hand. Alejandra Bolles’ cuisine is specific to the Yucatan, and empanadas and tamales share menu space with the less familiar panucho, a refried-bean-filled tortilla, and “onzicil,” a pumpkin-seed salsa served over zucchini. Bolles and Makay say they were happy to leave the theater behind and enjoy their restaurant and Vermont’s wideopen spaces. But some restaurateurs spend their free time treading the boards — such as Chris Francis, innkeeper at Ye Olde England Inne in Stowe. Francis says he never had ambitions of being a full-time actor, “outside of being a regular clown in life.” He’s never performed professionally, but for more than a decade he’s belonged to the Stowe Theatre Guild, which gives him a chance to hit the stage just down the road from his inn and its restaurant, Mr. Pickwick’s. Acting seems to be a natural extension of Francis’ ebullient personality. Over the years, he’s had small roles in shows such as Moon Over Buffalo, Man of La Mancha and Oliver! — in which his son Ross, now an aspiring actor in Los Angeles, joined him as the Artful Dodger. In 2002, Francis, who is from the UK, used the patented, old-school Britishness associated with his menu of bangers and mash and spotted dick to play Colonel Pickering, Henry Higgins’ pal in My Fair Lady. Like Bolles and Makay, Francis says his experience in theater has enhanced his ability to run a restaurant. “Hospitality is entertainment,” he says. Theatrical training, adds Francis, has taught him to use body language and eye contact when interacting with guests and employees. “You have to understand how to communicate with people. It’s all to do with how you convey the message ... with a little comedy to help them relax,” he says. When planning menus with his chef, Francis says, he makes sure dishes look the part. Served in an old-country-pub atmosphere, the fare at Mr. Pickwick’s has to convey homey rusticity while satisfying diners who expect Stowe-level opulence. THE CHOW MUST GO ON

Talk about squashing the competition. Just in time for Halloween parties, drinkers can now imbibe the world’s first pumpkin cider, courtesy of WooDchuck harD cIDEr. “Other than the apple, is there a fruit that [better] exemplifies fall in New England than a pumpkin?” queries BrEt WILLIaMs, president and CEO of GrEEn MountaIn BEVEraGE co., maker of Woodchuck. “We decided to put the two of them together for the first time.” The pumpkins used in the cider come from the garden
Located on Oak Street in the Old North End, near the Boys & Girls Club of Burlington, the spot started serving its namesake pastries in flavors such as corn, banana-chocolate chip and savory sausage and onion — with prices from $1.95 to $3.15 — last Saturday, along with a small menu of snack-shack-style favorites. Like its sister crêperies, the Muffin boasts compostable takeout containers and plenty of Vermont-grown goodies. “We have 500 pounds of blueberries in our freezer,” says co-owner BEnJy aDLEr, interviewed while preparing to teach a class on jam making in honor of Eat Local Week. The frozen fruit can go into localvore pastries all year round. Next summer, Adler says, he hopes to dish out cones of homemade soft-serve ice cream. Local meat has a pricey rep, but Adler and company are offering burgers for less than 5 bucks and pulledpork sandwiches for $5.95. “What’s surprising is that local ground beef is not much more expensive than commodity ground beef,” Adler explains. “If we do a high enough volume, it should work just fine.” A Vermont-made bean burger could keep vegetarians coming back, too. With a handful of tables made of reclaimed wood, a freshly painted tin ceiling and a neatly lettered chalkboard menu, the Muffin feels cozy and inviting. The only problem may be parking: The café has just one dedicated spot. When it’s taken, patrons must navigate nearby residential streets at the whims of the traffic gods.

It’s been a long wait since a sign first went up in a Winooski Main Street storefront promising Pho PastEur. Last week, a new paper banner offered an update: The Vietnamese noodle shop and grill will open its doors on September 16. What separates Pho Pasteur from the crowd of Chittenden County Vietnamese eateries? Every night is ladies’ night: The crew is female, from owners and best friends LIsa Quan and MInh Vu to the other cooks. JEnnIfEr LE, who is Quan’s daughter, says opening a restaurant was something Vu and Quan “wanted to do forever.” The pals waited for the right location, and when Winooski’s 38 Main Street Pub closed, they eagerly rented the space. The café is elegantly decorated in a Vietnamese style with colorful art from their homeland. Le says to expect all the standard dishes, including pho, and an assortment of rolls with fillings such as mixed veggies, chicken and whole shrimp. But Quan reveals that she has other tricks up her sleeve. She says Pasteur will be Vermont’s only spot to get Bò lá lÕt — spiced beef rolled into pepper leaves — which is the Vietnamese equivalent of dolmades. Among the rice and noodle dishes, Pho Pasteur offers Korean-style beef short ribs and “diced” beef stew. All meats are charbroiled, including pork meatballs that come stuffed into rice-paper spring rolls. Quan notes that, in the near future, she will offer a make-your-own roll option: Plates will arrive covered with grilled pork, vegetables

Its name may be ominous, but Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report, the regular bulletin from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, is often worth perusing. The September 10 edition reports on a study of Americans’ consumption of produce over the past decade. Overall, citizens of Washington, D.C., eat the most fruit each day — and this was true before Michelle Obama started rocking the White House garden. They’re followed, less surprisingly, by Californians. New Yorkers and Vermonters tie for third place. Despite the localvore movement, Green Mountain eaters aren’t even in the top ﬁve when it comes to veggie consumption in the past 10 years. The study concludes that Americans in every

Lately, I have craved rotisserie chicken the way pregnant ladies jones for pickles and ice cream. Luckily, the NORTH END ROTISSERIE, on the corner of North Winooski Avenue and North Street, opened Labor Day weekend. The bright space is ﬁlled with poultrythemed knickknacks. If you’re one of those people who ﬁnds chickens and their beady Tim Nugent little eyes creepy, you will be thoroughly frightened here. I ordered at the counter and was served immediately. Food may be kept warm and served cafeteria style, but it is fresh. A giant chalkboard on one wall lists the ever-changing sides, which number nearly 20… I started with half a rotisserie chicken ($9.49). Unfortunately, the bird had come out of a hot box, and its skin was crêpe-y and not at all crisp. The sweet glaze with which it was coated was pleasant, but I was disappointed by the lack of crunch. This is likely a growing pain, and I hope when
By now, it’s a safe bet that everyone knows someone who’s been on a reality show… Come September 15, everyone in tiny Alburgh will know a reality show star. That’s when “Top Chef”’s newest franchise — “Top Chef: Just Desserts” — premieres on Bravo. Then, the world will be introduced to TIM NUGENT (don’t call him the Nuge), a pastry chef from the Champlain Islands who currently works at Scala’s Bistro in San Francisco… Nugent landed on the show thanks to the executive chef at his restaurant, Jen Biesty, who was a cheftestant on “Top Chef” season 4 in Chicago. Biesty forwarded Nugent’s name to the show’s producers when she heard they were scouting for pastry talent. I know this because I was recently in San Francisco and ate at Scala’s. Since I never miss an episode of the show, I recognized Biesty immediately when she popped into the banquet room brieﬂy before dinner. Who could miss her slightly askew fauxhawk and the expression of perpetual half-terror on her face?
ALBURGH BAKER LANDS SWEET GIG ON “TOP CHEF”
Tapping Into Tapas First Bite: Tasca
BY S uzANNE P o D h A izE r
D 6h-FAHCincontenence090810.indd 1
9/1/10 1:51:56 PM
espite a tapas trend that began in metropolitan areas more than a decade ago and quickly spread to smaller cities, Vermont suffers from a dearth of Spanish fare. The country’s most famed flavorful ingredients, such as serrano ham, smoked paprika and piquillo peppers, rarely make it into dishes on local tables. Stowe’s pan-Latin-American Santos Cocina Latina is one of few places in the state that offer paella — a famed short-grain rice dish that originated in Valencia, Spain — as a standard menu item. In Montpelier, New England Culinary Institute’s Main Street Grill & Bar has a well-crafted global selection of small plates, including a smattering of Iberian options. And in Burlington, tapas bar Via Loma will open any day now at the intersection of Main and South Champlain streets. But for now, our only bona fide Spanish restaurant is Tasca, located in Plainfield on the site of the wellloved River Run restaurant. Tasca’s short tenure has been fraught with controversy. When owner and Spanish native Ignacio Ruiz purchased River Run, he invited its former owner, Jimmy Kennedy, to keep cooking Southern breakfasts for his fans. In July, Ruiz abruptly ended that arrangement and changed the spot’s name to Tasca. The move raised the ire of townsfolk for whom the cozy a.m. meals, with their soul food specialties such as catfish and grits, were a tradition. History aside, Tasca’s ultimate success or failure will rest on the quality of its food and service. After dinner with two friends, during which we sampled nine tapas, a plate of seafood paella and three desserts, I left Tasca feeling conflicted. I appreciated the courteous staffers, the pacing of the meal and the restaurant’s
homey interior, which features roughhewn wooden beams and mismatched orange and green furniture. But my impressions of the food were mixed. The menu had an appealing selection of tapas, ranging from simple toasted almonds to a plate of bread, avocado and poached shrimp with aioli. But the entrées, save for the paella and a paprika-laced seafood stew, didn’t seem to promise big, bold flavors: They included such unexotic choices as breaded steak or chicken with mashed potatoes, pan-seared tomatoes and snap peas, or burgers. To make the most of our visit, we opted for a mix of small plates to share and one entrée — a 10-inch pan filled with seafood paella. One of the first dishes to arrive, and one of the best we tried, was the classic pan con tomate — two slices of crusty bread rubbed with garlic and ripe tomato. We got ours covered in shreds of nutty Manchego. Although the sprinkling of cheese cost a hefty-seeming extra $3, it made the dish. At $7, a tapa of wilted spinach also seemed too expensive, but with all the starch and meat headed our way, we needed some healthy greens. Although the leaves were cooked to a beautiful bright green, they were excessively salty. Plump, sweet raisins punctuated each bite and helped make the mix more tolerable. The advertised pine nuts (which would have helped justify the high price) never made it to our plate. A rolled omelette filled with serrano ham and Campo de Montalbán cheese suffered similarly from zealous seasoning. Although the meat and cheese

with orange syrup, creamy flan with a light caramel topping and the belle of the bunch — a chewy, dense almond cake called torta de Santiago. (The others were fine, but not special.) We ate them to the strains of a local musician who picked out tunes on his guitar for the enjoyment of the handful of occupied tables. While I didn’t love all the food at Tasca this time around, Ruiz has solid ingredients to work with — local products plus some luxe imports — and a few tweaks would make a lot of difference. Some dishes, such as the spinach and the omelette, needed less salt; a hint of acidity would also have perked up the leafy greens. The ribs needed a little less time on the fire, while the paella rice could have used more, plus a more deeply flavored broth. To flourish in its out-of-the-way central Vermont location, Tasca will need to impress both diners seeking a flavorful destination and locals who may want to stop in on a regular basis for Spanish snacks, burgers and beer. Whether River Run fans are willing to embrace the spot that replaced the venerated eatery remains to be seen. m

— a thoughtful touch at any eatery, and one I’d like to see more often. When he arrived at our table, Ruiz made sure to inquire whether the pacing of the meal was working for us. We replied that it was — the snacks were staggered rather than arriving all at once, which made for a leisurely meal with plenty of time to converse and sip sangria. Most of the remaining tapas were pleasant, if not addictive. Spicy olives made a good snack, and a generous plate of fried potatoes in a piquant sauce were nicely tongue tingling, as advertised. The petite mushroom tart was a bit light on the main ingredient, but you can’t really go wrong with a flaky, buttery puff-pastry exterior. I liked the albondigas — a trio of moist meatballs in a rich reduced-wine sauce, but didn’t enjoy the smoked pork ribs as much. In an enticing picture on the restaurant’s website, each rib looks succulent. The real versions were on the dry side. Then it was time for the paella. Having sampled an excellent rendition at Santos Cocina Latina the previous weekend, I was jazzed when the

unters prowl lush pastures this weekend, pursuing woolly mammoths, bison and other big game with hefty throwing spears. It may resemble a scene straight out of the Pleistocene Epoch, but this blast from the past is the 15th annual Northeastern Open Atlatl Championship. Instead of live prey, competitors aim to hit their mark on painted animal targets (and more modern bull’s-eyes) in accuracy and distance challenges. It’s “one way to teach about archaeology and artifacts and our history,” explains Chimney Point State Historic Site’s Elsa Gilbertson, noting that atlatl-like relics have been found in Champlain Valley soil. The championship, taking place at Mount Independence this year, includes Sunday’s International Standard Accuracy Competition, while flint-knapping and pottery workshops, Native American craft demos, and spear throwing keep onlookers busy. Take your mark...

Some say music makes the world go ’round. In a sense, that’s true of the Destiny Africa Children’s Choir. The music ensemble, composed of Ugandan orphans ages 9 to 18, not only crisscrosses the globe; it also raises funds for the shelter, education and care of hundreds of other parentless kids through the Kampala Children’s Centre. The choir’s song-anddance performances, while uplifting and soulful, spread the story of the strife in their war-torn home country. As part of its second annual U.S. tour, the group visits Vermont this week, mixing traditional and contemporary tunes with spirited dancing, storytelling and synchronized African drumming. Turn it up.

Quiet Comeback Buster Keaton may be working his famous physical antics in the 1927 silent film College, but you can hardly call Saturday’s screening at Brandon Town Hall “silent” — the accompanying music is the most exciting part. New Hampshire musician and composer Jeff Rapsis serves as a full orchestra, using a digital synthesizer to produce an improvised movie score. “I may have some melodies or tunes in mind,” Rapsis explains, “but I ... just make it up as I go along.” Each time he does a run-though, the music varies. It can change according to the mood of the crowd, he says, or “what I had for dinner.” As part of a monthly silent-film lineup at the town hall, this week’s motion-picture draw also projects “The Goat” and “The Pawnshop”, shorts starring Keaton and Charlie Chaplin, respectively. According to Rapsis, they’re “great works of art that have been forgotten.” Tune in for a refresher.

An “American Idol” winner needs no introduction. Say “Soul Patrol,” and millions of reality-TV junkies would know you’re talking about Taylor Hicks. The bluesman’s career took off when he was named top dog in 2006, but he was no stranger to the music biz. The Alabama native had already self-produced two soul albums by the time he auditioned for the singing competition, and he’s since branched out, even grooving to “Beauty School Dropout” as Teen Angel in a Broadway production of Grease. But he’ll stick to his niche when he pops into Rutland’s Paramount Theatre on Saturday. With his signature country, R&B and jazz edge, the salt-and-pepper-haired musician pushes the boundaries of rock ’n’ roll. Idolize that.

SEVEN DAYS: What’s the ﬁrst thing that comes to mind when you think about your days playing in Burlington? GREG BEADLE: Deﬁnitely the scene. Going back to the Rocketsled days, it
seemed like there was very much a “scene.” A lot of bands that were vying for attention and notoriety. A sort of healthy and playful sense of competition. A good 10 or 15 bands that would end up in the same circle, and show up in Good Citizen magazine or whatever. But that was really my introduction to pretty much any music scene, what it meant to be in a scene, in general. SD: Going from the Cancer Conspiracy, an intellectually challenging instrumental band, to something like Township, which is so viscerally but basely appealing, is an interesting progression. How’d you get there? GB: When we started Cancer Conspiracy, I had just gotten out of playing with Non Compos Mentis, which you may or may not know was much more of an extreme metal band. Cancer Conspiracy allowed me to spread my wings and exercise a lot of inﬂuences I had growing up, like Genesis and Rush and Yes — a lot of progressive bands at the time. And the fact that we didn’t have a singer … I mean, everybody was a singer in that band as far as I’m concerned, because we wouldn’t have had room for a vocalist. Every guy in that band wanted to be heard and to shine with what he was doing. Even when we played out live, very seldom would we set up with a typical format. It was always the three of us across the
stage, thus symbolizing that we all had our own voice. That being said, I come from a wide variety of inﬂuences, obviously progressive bands. But with Township, I was in a place where I felt that maybe having a little more accessibility with a singer, being a little more recognizable, or not playing so much to — and I mean this with no disrespect — to the geeky, musician-type crowd, which the Cancer Conspiracy certainly did, Township would maybe reach out to anybody, from your average music fan to people who appreciate musicianship to whatever. But definitely touching on more of the classicrock inﬂuences, whether it be a Grand Funk Railroad or a Thin Lizzy. SD: You’ve had a fair amount of success in a short period, some critically acclaimed records and, of course, winning the 2007 WBCN Rock ’n’ Roll Rumble. Does that reception surprise you? GB: We came out swinging. And if I can toot everybody’s horn in the band, we are all relatively proﬁcient at what we do. We had all come out of fairly reputable bands that had had a fair amount of success. And I think people expected us to be good, which helped us, initially, get some recognition. The Rumble was a great opportunity. But it really doesn’t mean much in the grand scheme of things, or at least
cLUB DAtES NA: not avail. AA: all ages. Nc: no cover.
as much as it used to. There’s even something called “the Rumble Curse,” where you win, but then a year or two later your band is dead. But we never fell prey to that. It was cool, it was an honor. But I don’t think about that much anymore.

SD: And what is that identity? GB: That’s something that probably has yet to be heard. We’re in the process of recording a new album, and I’m really excited about it. Alex [Necochea] from [hard-rock Boston band] Bang Camaro has joined us in the last year and he’s really brought a lot to the table. He brings a little harder edge, which is something we’d been leaning toward anyway. We’ve taken a somewhat darker direction. It’s still accessible. But for once, there is a batch of songs that are truly Township’s. m
INFO & TIX: WWW.HIGHERGROUNDMUSIC.COM
SD: I guess I meant more that you are succeeding with a decidedly unhip, dated style of music. And where some bands might play it ironically, township are straightup legit, the real deal. GB: That’s been a blessing and a curse. There are people that got it, and it was very nostalgic for them in some sense. Or maybe it was entertaining because at first people thought it was a gimmick. Bottom line, we came out wearing our influences on our sleeves. But in the last year or so, I have found a real fault with that approach. I kind of regret how we started. I think we reached capacity with the amount of fans we could attract doing that sort of thing, people who are middle-aged and maybe go out once or twice, have a nine to five, gotta get someone to watch the kids, or whatever. But as far as being hip enough to attract a new generation of fans who want to spend money on your band, follow you on Twitter, MySpace … we couldn’t have less of that. So, I think in the last year we’ve tried to take those influences and still be very sincere about them, but come up with a much more original sound, more identifiable to Township. As opposed to a record where somebody thinks we sound like Thin Lizzy or Whitesnake in 1982. We were really good at doing a lot of things. But one thing we weren’t good about was forging an identity that was strictly Township.

Langdon Street Follies
Last week, I revealed that I had made a truly embarrassing error in the previous week’s column in regard to the date of this year’s Montpelier Downtown Music Festival. What can I say? Unlike the Pope, Glenn Beck and Tom Brady, I am not infallible. Yet. (Pop quiz: Of the three famous people I just mentioned, I actually do believe one of them to be infallible. Which one? Hint: It’s Brady.) Well, Montpelier being the bustling little burgh that it is, it appears I have been given a shot at redemption. Calling my shot right here: I am not screwing this blurb up. Yet. This Friday and Saturday, the selfproclaimed “Arts & Culture Engine of Montpelier,” the Langdon Street Café, hosts the Langdon Street Festival, a two-day extravaganza of music, art, community and beer. Sweet, sweet beer. The fun begins Friday evening with the countrified, happy-hour shenanigans of Mark LeGrand and the Lovesick Band, followed by “Old Reliable Amusements” with puppet company the Dolly Wagglers and an acoustic “preconcert” concert from the Underscore Orkestra — more on them in a sec. This all sets the stage for the belle of the ball, Anaïs Mitchell, and her incomparable Hadestown Orchestra (see spotlight, page 64) under the tent outside. Back inside, and closing out the evening, is maybe my favorite local band I’ve never seen, J.P. Harris and the Tough Choices, who, as they aptly put it, play “country-goddamnedmusic.” Goddamned right. Following what will likely be a wellneeded night of slumber — there is a beer garden, after all — the festival kicks into high gear with an honest-to-goodness street party Saturday. Daytime highlights include more puppet fun with the Wagglers, a bevy of food, a “clown spectacle” with the Real McCoy, one-man band Matt Lorenz’s suitcase junket (Rusty Belle) and Swiss dual-neck-guitar virtuoso Attila Vural. But once the beer tent opens again — 5 p.m., in case you’re wondering — the fun really begins. And not just because of the beer. Music, of course, is the main event. And the night’s lineup is killer, including column favorites Anna Pardenik and the Holy Smoke-Off, reunited local tradgehop legends Manifest Nextome, and the aforementioned Underscore Orkestra. Oh, and did I mention the beer tent?
The Underscore Orkestra
BDJF’s hipper performers in the last two years, you can likely thank her. And that’s in addition to working annually with the CMJ Music Marathon, which kicks off in NYC next month, as well as managing special events for Burlington City Arts. Her résumé is about to get even more impressive. This Sunday at the FlynnSpace, Giordano is soft-launching a new venture: her own music label, New Vogue Records. Her inaugural show features improv “power trio” the Inbetweens, who have been tearing up the NYC jazz scene of late and inspired possibly my favorite press quote this week. Says Wilco guitarist Nels Cline, the Inbetweens are “dangerous in the best way.” Agreed. They are also the perfect band to introduce New Vogue, whose stated
Rock and a Hard (Jazz) Place
Lisa Giordano is one busy chick. She is a vital and youthful piece of the puzzle at the Burlington Discover Jazz Festival — if you enjoyed Ledisi in 2008, or any number of
goal, according to Giordano, is advancing “contemporary avant-garde, improv jazz and jazz offshoots — like live hip-hop — and aims to promote as much of this music as possible, give it some sexy, wearable branding and market it to the CMJ/ Pitchfork/DownBeat/ Stereogum/new music crowd.” Giddyup. Though the Inbetweens’ latest record, Quantum Cowboy, isn’t a New Vogue release, the band is part of the New Vogue collective. It also includes Montréal’s Groundfood and a slew of Vermont acts: yoUSAY Placate, Souls’ Calling, Anna Pardenik and the Holy Smoke-Off and the Vermont Joy Parade. New Vogue’s “official” launch will actually happen at CMJ next month, but locals would do well to get a sneak peek at Giordano’s next move this Sunday.
• For my money, the show of the week is unquestionably the legendary Canadian indie collective Broken Social Scene at the Higher Ground Ballroom on Wednesday, September 22, with Sam Prekop’s band the Sea and Cake. And this is the part of the column where I challenge the “HG doesn’t book enough indie shows” crowd to put up or shut up. Or, as a toothless carny at the fair told me recently, you can’t win if you don’t play. Sage words. • Of course, because I’ve yet to schedule my music-scene summit and discuss steps to prevent such overload, that very evening, lover-ly indie-pop duo Mates of State will be at The Monkey House, with Oh Land and (if you can believe it) DJ Disco Phantom. Decisions, decisions. • It’s ladies’ night in Montpelier this Thursday at the Langdon Street Café. The triple-threat lineup features Austin-based sensation Denitia Odigie, the gusty soul stylings of Montpelier’s Sara Grace, and Latin chanteuse — and perennial column crush — Miriam Bernardo.
• Band Name of the Week: the Underscore Orkestra. Gypsy-influenced music always seems to do well around Burlington, whether it’s more traditional gypsy jazz, klezmer or some hybrid offshoot. This Portland, Ore.-based band is an amalgam of all of the above. They’ll be at Radio Bean this Sunday, following their appearances at the Langdon Street Fest. • Speaking of klezmer fun, local accordion maestro David Symons (Black Sea Quartet, Inner Fire District) has a new band in the works, Burlington Brass Balagan. In a recent email, Symons writes that the band is still in its infancy, but promises to be an exciting and unique addition to the local scene. His description: “Vermont’s only radical street brass band.” Color me intrigued. • Local misunderstood genius/total crackpot Tony Hill writes that his latest album, And the Low End of High Art, which I reviewed in late June, is newly available on iTunes, Amazon and Interpunk. He asked me to mention it and, well, I couldn’t think of a reason not to. So there you go. • Raq is back. After a brief hiatus spent indulging in a well-received solo project and getting his inner Steve Vai on, guitarist Chris Michetti is back in action with the local jam greats at the Higher Ground Ballroom this Saturday. Rising funky bunch Bearquarium open. • Speaking of HG, newly formed local bluegrass supergroup the Modern Grass Quintet will heat up the Showcase Lounge on Wednesday, September 22. But, of course, you’ll all be at Broken Social Scene that night, right? • In late April, I reviewed Get a Life, the striking debut CD from local art-rock powerhouse the Crack Up. In rereading that review and relistening to the album, I’ve come up with a much more efficient — albeit hyperbolic — description for their sound. Ready? Imagine Crooked Fingers’ Eric Bachmann fronting Tortoise. To think I needed 450 words to write that last spring. Catch the Crack Up this Friday at Radio Bean. • Last but not least, a happy 10th anniversary to Essex nightspot Banana Winds Café & Pub. They celebrate this Saturday with local rockers In Kahootz.
And finally, this week’s totally self-indulgent column segment, in which I share a random sampling of what was on my iPod, turntable, CD player, 8-track player, etc., this week. • • • • •

Rockin’ Ron the Friendly Pirate, Give Me an RRR! (SELF-RELEASED, CD)
In my three and a half years as the music editor for Vermont’s most prominent arts and culture publication, I have reviewed hundreds of local albums. I’ve mused on the best music our state has to offer, critiqued 1068 Williston Rd, S. Burlington its worst and generally riffed on everything (802)419-6200 in between. But in all that time, and for all of SUNDAY-FRIDAY that work, I have never, ever encountered an album quite like Give Me an RRR!, the debut Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner release from Vermont-based swashbuckler 6:30 AM-10 PM Rockin’ Ron the Friendly Pirate. Yes, you SATURDAY read that correctly. Breakfast 6:30-11 AM • Dinner 5-10 PM Pirate Ron’s port of call is Smugglers’ Notch. This is notable because, as anyone who’s been to the northern VT ski town 12v-harpers041410.indd 1 4/9/10 9:20:29 AM knows, it’s landlocked. One imagines that makes quite a commute for a seafaring sort. But here we begin to raise an eye patch on the enigmatic conundrum that is Rockin’ Ron. He’s a sea raider who lives on a mountain. He’s a pirate, notoriously among history’s most bloodthirsty, murderous Saturday, September 18th characters. But he’s also a friendly rapscallion. You’re blowin’ my mind, man. Three Decks of Dancing! Rockin’ Ron — aka Ron Carter — attempts 10pm - Midnight board at 9:30 pm to shed light on this seeming dichotomy on the album’s ﬁrst track, “FP Rap (Pirates on Featuring Board Go RRR!).” Over slickly produced DJ Hector beats and a meandering acoustic guitar line, “EL Salsero” Cobeo, Ron raps with the ﬂow one might expect DJ Papo Lopez & from a middle-aged man who dresses like a pirate, which is to say, awkward and cornball. DJ Craig Mitchell But there is an undeniable, campy appeal to aboard the his ruminations. Spirit of Ethan Allen “I’m the Friendly Pirate, you can call for cool breezes me FP / I’m the friendly pirate of the Seven and hot sounds! Seas. / I talk like a pirate on 09/19, and every other day in between,” he informs. Then comes this surprising one-liner: “I don’t have a sword and I don’t have a knife / I roll like a pirate, but I roll real nice. / I got me a crew of family and friends / they roll so deep, they give me the bends.” Yarrr. As any parent knows, the best family entertainment is just subversive enough to hold the interest of moms and dads while providing an appropriate amount of Miguel’s on Main Mexican Cantina, whimsy and silliness to satisfy the kids. It’s Friday Sept 17th, 10 pm. the reason franchises such as Toy Story and Shrek do so well at the box office. While Ron’s collection of 18 shanties, reels and

raps occasionally borders on groaning schmaltz — “Welcome Aboard,” “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little StaRRR” — just as frequently, he infuses enough clever wit to straddle the fine line between pandering and pleasing. Particularly on the Devo-ish “Buccaneer Bounce,” the punky “Cranky Pirate” and “Scurvy Dog and Scaredy Cat” the Friendly Pirate proves just goofy enough to delight young scalliwags and roguish enough to keep Raffi-weary parents from walking the plank. Just so you know, Sunday, September 19, is International Talk Like a Pirate Day.
“Shining on You” opens the epic 22-track re-release with a punchy, recklessly inconsistent guitar line. Over imprecise rhythmic strokes, Haley unfurls a string of classically inﬂuenced rock musings, at times recalling Alex Chilton’s sweetly melancholy work with Big Star, at others the pure, guilt-pop sheen of Cheap Trick. But what keeps the tune, and most of the album, in balance is a tendency toward the unconventional deployment of lo-ﬁ studio wizardry and arrangements to accent Haley’s idiosyncratic wordplay. This particular instance is less effective than on other songs, as his atonal guitar work is more distracting than complementary. But
Mister Casual, Sings for You (SELF-RELEASED, CD)
If you have been paying attention, you may have heard that the loose collective called Dan Haley Is Mister Casual is really, really good. Playing a handful of sporadic gigs in the last year or so, mostly around central Vermont, the band, led by Haley, has quietly established itself as one of the area’s promising under-the-radar acts. But for proof we need to travel, Hot Tub Time Machine style, back to 1989. George Bush the ﬁrst was in the White House. The world was gripped by the Tiananmen Square protests in Beijing. Daniel “Harry Potter” Radcliffe and Taylor “Voldemort” Swift were born. Lucille Ball and Ted Bundy died. And somewhere in the Pacific Northwest — OK, Portland — Haley wrote and recorded, as Mister Casual, a ragtag collection of pop tunes that inspired the current incarnation of his band, Dan Haley Is Mister Casual. Sings for You became something of a cult hit before being trampled by the relentless march of time, the rise and fall of Milli Vanilli, and the fact that hardly anyone listens to cassette tapes anymore.
it ably sets the stage for the peculiar pop brilliance to follow. “Song in F” continues the Big Stargazing aesthetic but infuses the harmonyladen track with offbeat musings recalling David Lowery. “Vida” is a gruff, acoustic gem that rolls along with a rambling, back-road appeal. “St. Jude” is a lean, capricious ballad, highlighted by swooning, close harmonies that recall early Byrds. “Downtown Sunshine” further implies Chilton worship, but with a subtle, sexually suggestive bent. “Babytalk Bubblegum Overture” is as bizarre as its name suggests. And “Geography of Love” brings Mister Casual’s record to a close with ﬁtting, well, casualness and wide-eyed whimsy. Mister Casual’s Sings for You is available for download at danhaley.bandcamp.com, as is his latest effort, Digital “45” #1. Dan Haley Is Mister Casual begins a short regional tour Wednesday, September 22, at Langdon Street Café in Montpelier. DAN BOLLES

uperlatives abound when one describes the South End Art Hop. It’s easily the largest, liveliest and most important visual-arts event in Vermont. This year’s nearly 100 exhibit locations showcased works in all media by 500 artists across Burlington’s vibrantly humming South End. In a logistical tour de force, 2010’s Art Hop staff, under new director Roy Feldman and event coordinator Bob Bolyard, pulled off the 19th annual festival without a major hitch. And artworks of impressive caliber seemed to be everywhere you looked, from Main Street to Flynn Avenue and all the nooks and crannies in between. The nexus of such crowded creativity is what presenters — the South End Arts and Business Association — calls the “original juried show,” though it’s essentially a noncompetitive exhibit that takes all comers. Each year a juror from out of town whittles the entries down into a competitive exhibition from which award selections are made. This year, juror Caitlin Clancy from the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston did an admirable job of conferring awards, although, as always, the pros and cons of the winning selections could be endlessly debated. Every year’s top-tier juried show has a unique texture informed by the juror’s biases and sensibilities, and Clancy seemed to have a particular interest in drawings. First prize was awarded to Ida Ludlow’s “Papier Mâché Hat.” The colored drawing portrays a wizened woman wearing a strange chapeau that seems to have three antennae projecting from it. Ludlow’s semiabstract oil pastel
“Fetch the Whisper” by Roger Coleman
“Balance” by Ethan Azarian
“Valves” contains biomorphic forms, including a thin baby, and is arguably the stronger of her pieces. At third place, another drawing, Sophie Eisner’s charcoal on brown butcher paper, is the rendering of a wise and wrinkly face called “Grandpa, Narlai, India.” Some viewers

THE ART AND CULTURE OF THE FOX HUNT’: Artwork, film footage and artifacts from the heyday of the sport in America; ‘THE ART OF OGDEN PLEISSNER: A RETROSPECTIVE FROM THE COLLECTION’: More than 30 rarely seen oils, watercolors and drypoints; ‘GOOD FENCES: VERMONT STONE WALLS’: An outdoor exhibit exploring the medium’s history, variety
VISUAL ART IN SEVEN DAYS:
may think it’s nothing special, while others may be delighted by it, but such is the nature of all juried shows. James Riviello’s cast-glass sculpture “To the Future” received second prize. It’s easy to agree with Clancy’s praise of his “theme, material use, craftsmanship, design, aesthetic and execution.” Riviello’s other piece, “Smoke Means Problems,” is equally strong. The exploration of gears and machine elements seems influenced by art deco, and by early20th-century visions of modernism. Among the other highlights at the Soda Plant is John Douglas’ black-andwhite photograph “Bobcat.” The image, which presents an apparently dead bobcat lying on long grass, is rich in visual textures and wonderfully balanced tonalities. The cat’s fur and the dense grasses seem to intermingle as a harbinger of the animal’s impending decay.
Several panoramic painting triptychs are also of interest: “Fetch the Whisper” by Roger Coleman; “Orange and Blue Display” by Kate Bright; and “Winter Village” by Ethan Azarian. Each looms large — about 10 feet long — engulfing the viewer’s eye by virtue of its scale. Bright’s piece consists of fractured shapes and various weights of line demarcating flat hues of pale blue and complementary orange; black voids deepen the space. Coleman’s piece is more closely related to formal abstract expressionism than to contemporary design. His hues are luminous and overlapped. Earth tones and silvery white dominate the two left-hand panels, accented by patches of red and Prussian blue. In the rightmost panel, a large area of emerald green anchors the composition. Azarian’s triptych is a jumble of 15 simplified house forms in black, white and gray, but he astutely varies values between warm and cool among the houses. In the Outdoor Sculpture and Public Art category, James Irving Westermann had a double win of first prize for his metal and stone sculptures “Meteor (and) Comet,” and second prize for chopper-esque “Trike,” all sited along Pine Street. Azarian also created a piece of public art, which won third in the hybrid category: His playful mural “Balance” brightens an exterior wall at Upstairs Antiques on Flynn Avenue. At about 18 feet high, the mural is certainly the biggest painting of this year’s Hop. M A R C AWO D EY Art Hop Juried Show, Soda Plant, Burlington. Through September 30.

movies The Extra Man ★★★★
he irony in Kevin Kline playing the title role in The Extra Man, an ode to Manhattan oddballs, is that he is, in reality, its single essential element. Virtually every other character seems extraneous by comparison. He makes the movie. Though it is, in point of fact, the story of a considerably less interesting creation. Paul Dano appears as an assemblage of eccentricities in the form of a New Jersey prep school teacher who loses his job when he’s caught trying on a brassiere in an improbably public area of the establishment. Dano’s character, Louis Ives, has issues. He yearns to look in the mirror and see an attractive woman smiling back at him. He likes to imagine his life is a movie that someone is narrating. He’s fixated on the literature of the ’20s — especially The Great Gatsby — and, as a result, dresses and speaks in the manner of a person from that period. Louis also fancies himself a budding writer and decides, in the wake of his firing, to move to New York City to hone his art. His life assumes a whole new level of strangeness when he answers a classified ad (“Gentleman Seeks Same”) and winds up renting a room in the shabby Upper East Side apartment of
a most unusual man 40 years his senior who takes him under his wing. Henry Harrison is one of the great Colorful Characters of recent cinema, and Kline gives the performance of his career in the role. He’s a bafflingly endearing basket case who puts on aristocratic airs even as he paints his ankles with black shoe polish because his socks are too threadbare to be seen in. He has fleas. And outrageous opinions on everything from sex (“My views are to the right of the Pope”) to the proper role of women (“The women I like best are the Hasidic — they really get it!”). A once promising playwright, Harrison claims to teach literature at a local college, but we never see him do so. What we see him do is serve as an “extra man” — an escort or walker — for decrepit society dowagers. Money does not change hands. Romance never factors into the transaction. He does it for the taste of the high life it affords him. In addition to the walker’s art, Harrison has much to teach his protégé, and absolutely none of it pertains to writing. The film’s most entertaining sequences, for example, involve the flamboyant older gentleman mentoring the younger one in his techniques for getting into the opera without buying a ticket
COMPANY MEN Dano and Kline play self-styled aristocrats who feed their fantasies by providing companionship to society dowagers.
and — my favorite — for avoiding detection when urinating in public, no small matter for a fellow never far from a champagne bottle or flask. Dano’s subdued performance complements Kline’s larger-than-life one nicely enough, but several other players prove expendable. An emaciated Katie Holmes contributes little as a coworker at the magazine where Louis finds employment, and the usually welcome John C. Reilly literally injects a false note in the role of Henry’s bushy neighbor who speaks in a screeching falsetto. Writer-directors Robert Pulcini and Shari Springer Berman — the team behind 2003’s
American Splendor — here achieve the seemingly impossible: They find a way to keep one of American cinema’s preeminent comic figures from even once being funny. Thanks to Kline, though, they achieve a great deal more. The Extra Man is worth seeing for his inspired interpretation alone. At one point, Henry explains to his flatmate the secret of his sycophantic success: “What I bring is the complete package — wit, intelligence and uncommon joie de vivre.” He’s a delusional blowhard, but he gets that right. Henry Harrison is dandy company. RICK KISONAK
Cairo Time ★★★★
didn’t expect to like Cairo Time. This effort from Québec-born, Torontoresident filmmaker Ruba Nadda is the kind of indie some people praise as “subtle,” “adult” and “sensitive” and others damn with faint praise. The kind where we see many pretty things, but not a lot happens. (It’s a PG-rated love story, if that’s any indication.) And, for God’s sake, this movie is already available on DVD right across the border. But if you see it on a small screen, you’ll miss the panoramas of a teeming, seething, sun-washed, ancient-modern city that Nadda unfolds for us. You’ll also miss the nuances of a memorable performance from Patricia Clarkson. Like Jeanne Moreau in La Notte, she can spend five minutes just staring at ravaged buildings, vacant lots and tired day laborers without boring the audience. Some actors go dead when they have no dialogue; others come alive. While I wouldn’t go so far as to compare Nadda to Antonioni, she, like him, gets a lot of mileage from imagery of a great actress wandering a great city. But enough film history: Let’s talk about that love story. Clarkson plays Juliette, a New York women’s magazine editor whose hus-
band works for the UN. When she comes to visit, he’s too busy running a refugee camp in Gaza to get away, so he sends his Egyptian friend Tareq (Alexander Siddig) to show her around the city. Tareq is tall, dark, handsome, soulful and single. Plus, he makes great coffee. This is not a sun-drenched escape fantasy on the order of Under the Tuscan Sun, however. For one thing, Juliette is attached and has no standard Hollywood pretext for cheating on her husband. (She says she loves him and gives us no reason to doubt it.) For another, Tareq has his own issues. His pride forbids him to approach an old love (Amina Annabi) who is now a widow. He has a European-style fondness of leisure and a laissezfaire attitude toward the city’s uglier aspects, which shocks Juliette. The New Yorker is mature and cosmopolitan. While some aspects of the city bother her, such as the male-only cafés and the harassment of uncovered women on the street, she makes the Sex and the City gals in Abu Dhabi look like a bunch of tweens shrieking, “OMG, check out that chick in the burkha!” (Actually, that’s pretty much literally what they did.) Still, Juliette can’t quite shed her
EAT, STRAY, ROVE Clarkson doesn’t do that much more than your average tourist in Nadda’s drama, but it’s absorbing anyway.
American fix-it attitude. Tareq, by contrast, believes some things can’t be fixed, and this low-key conflict gives the movie a tension that’s cultural as well as sexual. Given all the excellent reasons for these two people not to get romantically involved, plus the insufficient role of alcohol and other disinhibitors in their interactions, it’s hard to call Cairo Time a “romance.” Really, what it is is one of the rare realistic movies about attraction. There’s as much awkwardness here as chemistry, and body language always says more than words.
In its slight, deliberately minimalist way, Cairo Time shows an integrity rare even in the world of indies. If you want to see films that combine clear-sightedness about our global culture with passion, violence, sex and generally excessive behavior, I suggest the wonderfully wild works of Fatih (HeadOn) Akin. (He has a new one coming.) But if you want to sink into a cross-cultural film that’s thoughtful without being harrowing, picturesque without being insipid, it could be Cairo Time.

Curses, Foiled Again
Police accused Anthony Parkhurst, 20, of stealing a 2001 Honda van advertised on Craigslist by taking it for a test drive but never returning. Orlando police Sgt. Stanley Klem said Parkhurst then listed the vehicle on Craigslist himself and sold it to a couple for $4000. He promptly stole it and listed it on Craigslist the next day. The couple spotted the ad, alerted police and identified Parkhurst as the seller of the van. Suspecting Parkhurst of belonging to a statewide car-theft ring that stumped investigators for months, Klem said, “Stealing back the car they had just sold could be the break we needed.” (Orlando Sentinel) FBI agents had no trouble identifying Alan Garrett, 43, as their suspect in a bank robbery in Galloway, Ohio. Bank employees not only got the license number of the getaway car, which was traced to Garrett, but also recognized him as a regular customer at the bank. (Associated Press)
A woman flying standby from Las Vegas to Sacramento, Calif., paid full fare for the last available seat, boarded and stowed her bags, only to be told she had to deplane because a latearriving passenger assigned the seat next to her required two seats to accommodate her girth. The tardy overweight passenger was just 14 years old. “It didn’t seem right that I should have to leave to accommodate someone who

othing is more conducive to peace of mind than not having any opinions at all.” German aphorist Georg Christoph Lichtenberg said that and now I’m offering it for you to use. Are you game? Try this experiment: For seven days, divest yourself of your opinions. And I mean all of them: opinions about politicians, celebrities, immigration reform, rockabilly music, your friends’ choices in mates — everything. For this grace period, be utterly nonjudgmental and open minded and tolerant. Allow everything to be exactly what it is without any need to wish it were otherwise. By experiment’s end, you’ll probably feel more relaxed than you have in a long time.
ARIES (March 21-April 19): When teen pop star Miley Cyrus appeared on David Letterman’s late-night TV talk show, band leader Paul Schaeffer asked her if she lip-synchs to prerecorded music during her performances. Miley replied that no, she never fakes it. For evidence, she said, anyone could go watch a YouTube clip from one of her concerts. Sometimes she sounds terrible, which proves that she’s risking the imperfection of actually singing live. I urge you to follow Miley’s lead in your own sphere, Aries. In the coming week, you really do need to be as raw as the law allows. Be your authentic self, please — with no AutoTune-like enhancements.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): This is an ex-
up, U.S. president Abraham Lincoln lived in Indiana for 14 years. The Lincoln Boyhood National Memorial commemorates his time there. When my friend Janet was 7 years old, her second-grade class visited the place. While strolling around outside, she found a Band-Aid on the ground and excitedly assumed it had once graced a boo-boo on Old Abe himself. She took it home and secretly used it as a talisman. When she rubbed it on her own wounds, it seemed to have magical healing properties. Only later did she realize that Band-Aids weren’t invented until 55 years after Lincoln’s death. No matter. The artifact had done a superb job. I predict
(April 20-May 20): Here’s your mantra: BIG GREEN LUCK EVERYWHERE. I urge you to say it frequently in the coming days. Sing it softly to yourself while you’re driving your car or riding on public transportation. Whisper it as a prayer before each meal. BIG GREEN LUCK EVERYWHERE. Chant it in rhythm to your steps as you walk. Murmur it to the tiny angel looking down at you from the ceiling just before you drop off to sleep. Yell it out as you’re dancing beneath the sky. BIG GREEN LUCK EVERYWHERE. It’ll work its magic even if you don’t know exactly why you’re saying it or what it means.
cellent time for you to revamp your relationship with your body. All the cosmic rhythms are aligned to help you. How should you go about it? The first thing to do is formulate your intentions. For example, would you like to feel more perfectly at home in your body? Would you revel in the freedom of knowing that the body you have is exactly right for your soul’s needs? Can you picture yourself working harder to give your body the food and sleep and movement it requires to be at its best? If you have any doubts about how to proceed, ask your body to provide you with clues.

Park, Calif., invented a device that he declared would help parents remember not to leave their children in the back seat when they get out of the car. VizKID is a 2-pound, 24-inch-tall, blue Hawaiianprint construction cone with a bright yellow ball on top with a painted-on happy face that rides in the passenger seat. (San Jose Mercury News)
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Afghan farmers grow a lot of poppies — more than anywhere else in the world. While most of the crop is converted into opium and heroin, it could just as well be used to create poppy seed bagels — as many as 357 trillion of them by one estimate. The way I see it, Leo, you have a comparable choice ahead of you. A resource that’s neutral in its raw or natural state could be harnessed in a relatively good cause or a not-so-good cause. And I bet you will be instrumental in determining which way it goes. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): The Latin motto “Dulcius ex aspiris” means “Sweetness out of difficulty.” It has a different meaning from “relief after difficulty” or “character building from difficulty.” It suggests a scenario in which a challenging experience leads not just to a successful outcome, but also to a delicious, soothing harmony that would not have been possible without the difficulty. This is what I foresee coming for you, Libra. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Give the best gifts you can possibly give, Scorpio. Don’t hoard any of the intense blessings you have at your disposal. It’s time to unveil the fullness of your idiosyncratic generosity ... to bestow upon the world the naked glory of your complex mojo. Some people will be better able than others to receive and use your zesty offerings, and it’s OK to favor them with more of your magnanimity. On the other hand, don’t spend too long worrying about the fine points of how to disseminate your wealth. The important thing is to let it flow like a river fresh from eternity. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): “Do not
think you will necessarily be aware of your own enlightenment,” said Zen Buddhist teacher Dogen. Which leads me to say: “Do not think you will necessarily be aware of becoming a role model and potent influence.” The way I see it, either of those developments may happen in the coming weeks. Without suffering any pangs of self-consciousness, you could suddenly find yourself thrust into a higher, brighter, more powerful state of being. I doubt there’ll be any stress or strain involved. Rather, it will naturally occur while you’re being your strong-minded, expansive self, trying simply to rearrange the world to conform to your vision of paradise.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Soon it will probably be time for you to wrap up the Season of Exploration. You’ve surveyed the outlands and fringe areas enough for now, right? I’m guessing that you’ve reconnoitered the forbidden zones so thoroughly that you may not need to do any more probing. Or am I wrong about this? Am I underestimating your longing to push out to the frontiers and beyond? Maybe your brushes with exotic creatures and tempting adventures have whetted your appetite for even more escapades. I’ll tell you what, Capricorn: I’m going to trust your intuition on this one. Are you ready to rein in your risk-taking, or are you hungry for more? AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): When I was living in Los Angeles in the summer of 1986, I had a memorable dream. In the dream, I was dancing with God. As best as I can describe it, the Divine Wow was a female whirlwind exuding cool blue fire and singing ecstatic melodies. Now and then I caught a glimpse of something that resembled a face and body, but mostly she was a sparkling fluidic vortex that I moved in and out of as we floated and tumbled and leaped. The contact was so vivid and visceral that from that day forward I never again said, “I believe in God.” My experience was as real as making love with a human being; “belief” was irrelevant. I predict that you will soon have a comparable encounter with a primal force, Aquarius — whatever passes for “God” in your world. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): The eighthcentury theologian known as the Venerable Bede compared our existence to a sparrow that flies in the window of a royal castle while the king is enjoying a winter feast with his entourage. Outside, a snowstorm is raging. Inside, there’s a big fire in the hearth that keeps everyone warm. But the sparrow doesn’t stay in this welcoming place; it quickly flies out another window on the other side of the dining room, refraining from plucking any of the delicious scraps of food the revelers have discarded. Bede says that the sparrow’s actions are like ours in our own approach to living our lives. Well, guess what, Pisces: I don’t think that will be true for you in the coming months. Judging from the astrological omens, I suspect that once you fly into the feast room, you won’t depart like a restless, confused wanderer. You will linger.

Police charged Cedric R. Newton, 52, with reckless discharge of a firearm after he used a .38-caliber revolver to chase a bat from his home in Maplewood, Minn., claiming it “attacked” his wife. Newton wounded the bat but not before shooting into an adjoining townhouse, where officers found three bullets in its freshly painted walls, a dent in a metal closet door and a dent in the stove. “Newton told police that he had the presence of mind to have his wife go upstairs while he shot at the bat,” the criminal complaint said, “but apparently gave no consideration to the surrounding townhomes.” (Minneapolis’s Star Tribune)

Your guide to love and lust...
mistress maeve Dear Mistress Maeve,
I’ve been with my lady for a year. We have things in common that I’ve had a hard time finding in other women, like a love for anime and endless hours spent playing video games. The sex is pretty good, too, so I feel like a lucky guy most of the time. However, we definitely have a communication problem. Like any couple, there are little things about one another that bug us, and we seem to not talk about them until they fester into big arguments. After a few huge explosions, we keep coming back to the same impasse: How can we be together if we can’t talk? For my part, I know I wait too long to talk about my issues with her, but when I do get around to it, she reacts with anger and shuts down. We agree that we need to work on this, but I feel like I’m the only one making strides. I don’t want to lose her, but I don’t like where we’re headed. Help?
Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or share your own advice on my blog at sevendaysvt.com/blogs
With open honesty,
Hats off to you for wanting to strengthen your communication skills and hang on to this rare breed of woman — not all of us like to spend our Saturday nights watching Japanese anime marathons. That said, if you’re going to win this battle, you can’t be the only one leading the charge. Are you sure your lady is willing to fight the good fight with you? If she’s on the defense, you may be wasting your time — time you could be spending playing video games. Have a talk with your girlfriend to determine whether you’re on the same page; she must understand your communication issues and be willing to match your concerted efforts to improve. If you collectively decide to move forward, set aside one evening per week to have open dialogue about your relationship. Discuss both the challenges and successes of the week. Support each other while asking for what you each need. Sure, this may seem awkward at first, but you must retrain your brains to be open and honest with each other. Eventually, with enough practice, it will become second nature.
