NEWS EDITORIAL

Inauguration of President Hart just the first step

G

iven that a majority of all college students now are women — a trend reflected at the UA, where 52 percent of all students enrolled are female — it is easy to take equal educational opportunities for granted. But the inauguration of Ann Weaver Hart, the first woman president in the UA’s 127-year history, shows progress cannot be allowed to stagnate. It’s obvious that more women have been enrolling in college and pursuing four-year degrees. Nationally, women made up 57 percent of undergraduate students in fall 2009, and 59 percent of graduate enrollment, according to National Center for Education statistics. But the rise in the number of female students enrolled in college ought to raise the question: Where are their role models and mentors? The first woman to become president of a major research university was Lorene L. Rogers, who took the helm at the University of Texas in 1975. But women in higher education still lag. At the UA, there are 1,055 male tenure track faculty members, compared to just 505 female tenure track professors. Nationwide, female professors, on average, earn about four-fifths as much as their male counterparts, according to statistics compiled by the Chronicle of Higher Education. Furthermore, though more women have made gains in historically male-dominated fields like medicine and law, they lag in science, technology, engineering and mathematics fields — disciplines where the UA has much to offer. Hart is a pioneer. Her achievements at the UA and at Temple University in Philadelphia, where she was also the university’s first female president, demonstrate how much women can do in higher education. Still, the UA must make a commitment to furthering the progress that Hart’s generation has made for gender equity in education. Students and faculty should be aware of the threat stereotypes may pose to female student recruitment and retention, particularly in science and technology fields. Additionally, attracting and retaining female faculty ought to be clearly named a priority to administrators at the UA and elsewhere. Female college students need role models and mentors who relate to them and can demonstrate where their potential may take them. Earlier this month, the Women’s Studies Advisory Council hosted the 16th annual Women Who Lead reception, where Hart was honored with an award and an engraving of her name in the Women’s Plaza of Honor. “I’m tremendously honored to be here,” Hart said at the event. “I’ve been the first woman president in other positions, so for me, it’s ‘you’re the president,’ and you just move in and get your work done.” But that kind of attitude is what lays the foundation for the next generation of women. Hart’s inauguration is a solid first step. But there’s still work to be done.

university and successfully incorporating two medical schools and an industry economic development, Hart said, is the biggest challenge the UA faces. Having previously worked in a land grant setting and at a university with a comprehensive medical center has given Hart the right tools to run such a university as the UA, she said. “I believe I’ve had experiences

that have allowed me to be broad and complex in the way I approach institutional problems,” Hart said. “And this is definitely a complex time and the U of A is definitely a comprehensive and exciting and complex university.” Hart said she wants the UA to be her last stop before she retires. “This is the best job one could ever hope to have and incredible opportunities for contributing to the future are a part of this job,” Hart said. “I hope that I can spend the rest of my higher-ed leadership career here at the university.”

FUN FACTS ABOUT PRESIDENT HART What is your favorite aspect of the UA? The spirit of the people here. There is a commitment and excitement to being a part of the university among alumni, students and faculty and staff that is hard to describe when you’re in the middle of it and haven’t been places that don’t have that kind of pride and excitement. It’s a very warm, forward-looking and energetic approach to life. What is your favorite aspect of Tucson? The Sonoran Desert. The incredible variety of life that flourishes here in what seems to be an insurmountable climate. I love the monsoon. I love the variety of birds and reptiles and other animals. Incredible vegetation. What book is on your nightstand? “The Devil’s Highway” by Luis Alberto Urrea . It is so wonderful and I want everybody to read it. It’s incredible. It’s about the border and the culture. It’s really great.

I’m excited. I think it’s going to be really a celebration of the event for President Hart, but also for the university.

Hart proves insightful, inspirational to student leaders RACHEL McCLUSKEY In her first semester on campus, President Ann Weaver Hart has been an inspiration, student leaders say. “She is a phenomenal woman leader to look up to,” said Katy Murray, president of the Associated Students of the University of Arizona. “Somebody who is a female in a leadership role — it’s really great to see that there is so much potential to do amazing things like that. She is definitely somebody that I aspire to be like.” Murray said she enjoyed working with Hart because of Hart’s openness with students. “She has such a passion and motivation to support the students and really ensure that our students’ experience is the best it can be,” Murray said. Graduate and Professional Student Council President Zachary Brooks echoed the sentiment, saying that he admired how open Hart is to listenting to students. “What I like about her,” Brooks said, “is that in one meeting that I had with her, she listened to all our ideas, and then she added to it. So I felt like, even if she heard something before, she actually was willing to listen and then add to our thought process.” She listens and usually waits until she has heard from all perspectives to make a decision, Brooks said. “I think that trait is really nice,” Brooks said. “I think that most

people appreciate what leadership is and that it is difficult, and you have to make decisions. But if people don’t feel like they are being listened to, then they get frustrated.” Hart reached out to ASUA representatives and asked to attend the ASUA Senate meeting on Wednesday, said Krystina Nguyen, ASUA executive vice president. “I was under the impression that she wanted to only come and observe. I love that she took questions,” Nguyen said. Hart often draws on her experiences as the president of two other universities to advise student leaders, Murray added. “Any kind of big issue, she always has a really good perspective,” she said. “I absolutely love getting to hear her thoughts, stories and opinions because she has great advice.” Brooks said he feels as though Hart indirectly mentors him, especially when she refers to an idea or thought he told her about. He described a Faculty Senate meeting, when he made a comment and, 15 minutes later, Hart acknowledged what he said and added onto it. “I feel she is telling me indirectly, whether she means to or not, that I am moving in the right direction,” Brooks said. “I really appreciate that she has incorporated me in her comments publicly. That’s a really nice thing to get from a president and certainly a president I respect and admire.”

PRESIDENT ANN WEAVER HART speaks during the ASUA Senate meeting on Wednesday. The 21st president has been an inspiration to student leaders, who say she is willing to listen to their ideas and add to the thought process.

Community Chatter Now that we’re at the end of Ann Weaver Hart’s first semester as president, what do you think her next step should be?

“She should focus a lot on the funding because, personally, I am on a scholarship here, so if it weren’t for the scholarship, I wouldn’t be here. So that’s a really important thing for her that she should work on. And I think the integration and the quality of classes is important.” — José Bermúdez, freshman studing ecology, evolution biology and biochemistry

“If she had any sort of say in the traffic situation on campus, then definitely, definitely [do something]. As long as she keeps student tuition down, I’m happy.” — Josh Flores, sophomore studying Chinese

“A concern in our department is the budget and this is the funding for [teaching assistants]. That’s one of the things that if I had a chance to talk with her to ensure that our TAs get the funding so they get a job. Right now they are being very selective so they have to cut down on the number of the TAs. But we offer these courses that freshman of 300 or 400 students attend, but we can’t have the number of TAs anymore since they cut down on the funding.” — Mary Pierce, doctoral student studying history

“Just coming from out of state and talking to people in state, it’s kind of ridiculous. Especially if you want a lot of people to attend your school outside of living in Arizona, it takes a lot of dedication. And scholarships to get to come here are hard to get to. It seems a little unfair, the price difference and the lack of scholarships.” —Macy Walker, marketing sophomore

Hart’s changes improve efficiency, unity SARAH-JAYNE SIMON During President Ann Weaver Hart’s first semester at the UA after succeeding former President Robert Shelton to become the UA’s 21st president, she has already made many changes. “One of the things she has asked us to do is to put together a strategic plan that combines the academic strategic plan, the capital strategic plan — which is the planning of new buildings and renovation of old buildings — and the financial strategic plan into one,” said Leslie Tolbert, senior vice president for research. “We haven’t done that in the past years.” Previously, different groups on campus have worked on planning, but they were never brought together into a single effort. It will be “one of the hallmark actions” of Hart’s first year, Tolbert added. “It’s something we have to do when funds are limited and resources generally are limited,” she said. “They all have to be working together to be as frugal and efficient as possible. I think that has been a really important step that she took this fall immediately upon taking office.” Hart has also rearranged the president’s cabinet slightly and changed the names of some of the roles, said Andrew Comrie, interim senior vice president for academic affairs and provost. “In actual terms of day-to-day stuff, I think she is getting the input that she needs,” Comrie said. “I think in order to simplify meetings to make them more effective, she is trying to just have the key people at the right tables for the right kinds of decisions, rather than have a huge group at a huge table for everything, which is less efficient.” When Hart came into the position, the cabinet, as she inherited it, was very large and did not specifically serve in an advisory capacity, said Wanda Howell, chair of the Faculty Senate. “We certainly, with President Shelton, covered more global issues and, perhaps, concerns,” Howell said. “But a cabinet, in my view, is really designed to help the executive officer.” In addition to adjusting the cabinet’s role, Hart has also changed its composition. “It’s a difference in sensibility, especially for how it looks. It looks much better to be much more inclusive. She is very good at that based on her academic background, and a bit because she is a woman. She is also an executive and with any executive you are going to have a very core group.”

BORDERLANDS Tucson’s newest, hippest brewery and restaurant, Borderlands Brewing Co., temporarily closes its doors to return bigger and better than ever

B

STEPHANIE CASANOVA

orderlands Brewing Company, located in downtown Tucson off of Toole Avenue and Seventh Street, has seen an “unexpected positive response� from the community in its first year of business, said Mike Mallozzi, co-owner of the establishment. In fact the brewing company has been so successful that it’s undergoing an expansion to add larger tanks that can brew more than three times as much beer. “We’re profitable for our first year, which is astronomical,� said Blake Collins, head brewmaster of Borderlands. “Most businesses struggle for the first three years to get through and we’ve done it in one. I think it’s just Tucson’s ready for craft beer and is excited about what we’re doing here.� Mallozzi, who has a doctorate in microbiology from the UA, and Myles Stone, a medical student at the UA, started the company in 2010 and asked Collins to join the team shortly after. Although the brewery draws business and provides beer to a distributor in Tempe and three local businesses, the owners had to sacrifice their salaries in order to be profitable. “Salary is one of the biggest expenses for a business,� Mallozzi said. “And so we were willing to sacrifice some of that salary in order to get this up and running.�

“

Most businesses struggle for the first three years to get through and we’ve done it in one.

�

— Blake Collins, head brewmaster at Borderlands Brewing Co.

The brewery’s beers are inspired by the local community. “We really wanted our brewery to sort of embrace Tucson culture,� Mallozzi said. “And we feel like that culture is really centered down here in the downtown, Fourth Avenue area.� The brews are made with local ingredients that reflect the city’s culture, such as citrus and prickly pear fruit. Collins said he likes experimenting with ingredients and being creative while brewing. “I enjoy rearranging things and using new ingredients and really trying to put a new spin on what beer can be,� Collins said. Natalie McGee, owner of Arizona Cactus Ranch, said she’s been selling prickly pear concentrated nectar to the brewery since June 2011. The nectar is used to make Borderlands’ Prickly Pear Wheat Beer, one of six beers that the company makes. “I thought it was very unique on their part to come up with something original like that,� McGee said. “Not everybody makes beer with prickly pear.� The brewery also helps the local community by participating in charity events and donating beer and money. Even the brewery’s spent grains, which are

used wheat and grains soaked in water, are donated to the Tucson Community Food Bank, where they’re used as compost for the food bank’s farm. Borderlands donated beer and served it at the Tucson Children’s Museum’s annual “An Evening of Play� adult fundraiser event this year. Daniela Siqueiros, the museum’s marketing and membership manager, said the beer was well received and the owners were great to work with.

“People loved the room and the beers that were being tasted,� Siqueiros said. Siqueiros said she had visited the brewery before and likes its different takes on beers and its attempt to use ingredients unique to the Southwest. “So much of our culture here in Tucson has that connection tied to it,� Siqueiros said. “Why not create products that are local and find inspiration from within the area that we’re at? I think it’s great.�

The rest of the beer community likes to say what’s on its mind too, according to Collins, who said 98 percent of the customers’ feedback is positive. “When you create something, you put your heart and soul into it and you want it to be well received by people,� Collins said. “At the end of the day, I brewed the beer that I want to brew and I know it’s what I want it to be and when somebody enjoys it, that’s pretty satisfying.�

AUTUMN IN ANALOG BREAKS OUT As one of the newest musical acts coming out of the UA, these seniors are determined to sound different RACHEL CABAKOFF September. We have taken time sort of separately to play with each other one-on-one and trying to get to know each other as musicians. We have definitely become good friends,” Fanus said. Despite the members bonding as a group, they’re doing their best to avoid falling into just one genre while retaining their own distinct sounds. “Our sound is kind of building right now. We are dabbling in different types of instruments to build it up,” Fanus said. Still, whatever it is the band is building, its members think they’re off to a good start. “Listening to our music, you just get good vibes from it,” Wong said. “It is really accessible music to anyone coming from any musical background.” As the vocalist and songwriter of the band, Fanus lyrics are influenced by his previous band, Diver City. “We were just at the point where we were getting looked at and we were recording our EP and the lead guitarist passed away in a car accident,” Fanus said. “It’s definitely taught me a lot. That’s kind of where my passion comes

In a small practice room on the second floor of Space Smoke Shop in downtown Tucson, Autumn In Analog’s distinctive sound can be heard echoing through the hallway. Brad Wong bangs on the cajon drum while Scott and Spenser Scheinman keep the rhythm on their guitars. Justin Fanus’ soft voice elevates above the instruments as he sings simple, uplifting lyrics. After officially being together for three months, Autumn In Analog is already on its way with an EP expected to release next fall. The band formed when Wong found Scott Scheinman and Spenser Scheinman on BandPage, a music-networking site to help musicians, fans and the music industry interact. Fanus came into the mix a couple of weeks after. “I was really surprised that Scott and Spenser were on BandPage and that we all live only a mile from each other,” Wong said. “It was pretty convenient.” Once the lineup was set, the band was sure to quickly get to know each other musically and personally. “A lot has happened since

from and the reason why I’m trying to drive this group.” The band has done a couple of shows at UA sorority chapters, Sky Bar and at the Space Smoke Shop. Autumn in Analog hopes to continue playing locally but emphasized its main focus is the EP.

“It is basically the first five songs we’ve put together as a group,” Scott said. “We’re all really excited, there’s a little something for everyone in it.” As far as the future goes for Autumn In Analog, the band’s members are really only concerned with moving forward

with their music. “All of us don’t really want a normal 9-to-5 job where we’re stuck behind a desk,” Wong said. “We want to keep creating and follow our passions. Overall, I just hope that we can continue to protect our dreams and develop our talents.”

AS THE FACE of Americana’s newest crop of musicians, Justin Townes Earle has made waves.

L I N C O L N •

It’s no surprise that the music industry is filled with pitfalls, misfortunes and harrowing experiences. Recall any number of one-hit wonders you can think of, and their demise can be chalked up to internal conflicts, monetary issues or licensing problems. When you’ve only been navigating the heady waters of the music world for a scant six years, one would expect cynicism to play in your favor. But when you’ve been raised around the notion that one day you will have to play music to make a living, things are a little different. For Justin Townes Earle, the acclaimed 30-year-old singer/ songwriter from Nashville, Tenn., this alternative route was the case. “In the music business, you have to make sure that your eyes are wide open,” Earle said. “You can say that you don’t want to be a businessman all you want, but if you’re not a businessman, nobody’s ever going to find out about you.” Earle has made a career out of his genre-bending Americana, incorporating blues, folk, country and, most recently, soul (on this year’s Nothing’s Gonna Change The Way You Feel About Me Now), into his body of work. As the son of alternative country great Steve Earle, Justin Townes Earle was set up to write music from the get-go, but his father’s name is about the only thing that links the two together now. Earle got to where he is solely of his own accord.

“You can’t just put that much trust into anybody these days in the music industry,” Justin Townes Earle said, speaking by phone from Nashville. “You have to prove that you can pull some shit on your own.” And while Earle’s accolades have come at his own hand, his earlier work with bluegrass and ragtime group The Swindlers shaped and contributed to his varied sound. “I ended up joining that band for about five, six years on and off, and there’s one guy from that band that still works with me,” Earle said. “He was the one that survived. Some of them went off and got married. Some of them have terrible drug habits.” While Earle is candid about his own past drug usage, his time in rehab and his subsequent sobering up, he’s more focused than ever. Earle recorded Nothing’s Gonna Change The Way You Feel About Me Now in just four days. “My recording sessions are very fast-paced and are very private, because we don’t need people in the way,” he said. With focus comes artistic clarity. As he’s released about an album a year since his debut, Earle knows what works for him and what doesn’t, and preemptive measures are crucial to his work. When you’re heralded as the newest voice of a genre, it pays to make sure your approach is precise. “I could not spend like five weeks in a fucking studio,” Earle laughed. “If it takes that long, then I haven’t done my work. The first step of the work wasn’t finished right.”

ON THE ROAD Wildcats head to Lubbock, Texas, for first away game of the season

CAMERON MOON As the saying goes, home is where the heart is — or in the case of sports, home is where the heart works best. The No. 9 Arizona men’s basketball team has defeated four of its regular season opponents by a combined score of 341246 including Wednesday night’s 43-point victory margin over NAU, improving its record to 4-0, but every contest has been played in the friendly confines of McKale Center. Saturday’s game at 7 p.m. against Texas Tech in Lubbock, Texas, broadcast on ESPNU, is not only a regular season game, but also the first road match for a young team that starts two freshmen. Luckily for the Wildcats, their summer exhibition tour in the Bahamas at least prepared them for the challenges of playing on the road. “One of the many things we’ve gotten out of this summer is that we’ve had the opportunity to travel as a team,” head coach Sean Miller said. “It’s not the first time that we’re doing that.” There was one drawback, however, to the Bahamas trip. Not only was the competition not as strong as the opponents the Wildcats will continue to face in the regular season, but the environment in which Arizona played was not comparable to an antagonistic crowd at a regular away game. “That’s nowhere near playing away at a hostile arena once the regular season begins,” Miller said. “To play someone on the road on their true home court, to me that’s meaningful. To go play at Clemson [Dec. 8], at Texas Tech, those are going to be two hard-fought games and you develop character.” Arizona’s approaching road dates come at a time when neutral site games and nonconference tournaments are “hot topics” in college basketball, according to Miller. In playing two road games before the Hawaiian Airlines Diamond Head Classic, a tournament the Wildcats will compete in during winter break, Miller said he hopes to establish confidence playing on the road, in preparation for the conference slate. “When you’re on the road, you want to be ready, knowing how hard it is to win on the road,” Miller said. Texas Tech has yet to play on the road and has scored more than 80 points in each of its four games, winning all of them. But, the Wildcats are far and away the best team the Red Raiders will have faced. “I’m excited,” freshman forward Brandon Ashley said. “Just trying to get this first win on the road and have a good game.” Texas Tech has four players that average double-digit points, led by Jaye Crockett with 16.0 points per game, so Arizona will be challenged defensively against the highest level of competition it has faced. But Wildcat players said they are looking

forward to the feeling that accompanies winning on an opponent’s home court. “Last year, when we won on the road, it was the most exciting feeling of the season,” sophomore guard Nick Johnson said. “We have our young guys, their first road trip, but we have a lot of veterans.” Because of the transfer of senior point guard Mark Lyons, as well as the additions of redshirt players Matt Korcheck and T.J.

McConnell, the Wildcats have experienced members who have played on the road. “It’s time,” Miller said. “Five of our nonconference games are away from McKale, and we’ll take a lot of pride in those five games. It will prepare us for conference play certainly. We’ve had some great moments over the last couple years on the road. We’ll rely a lot on Saturday from our veterans on their play and talk and leadership.”

Griffitts leads W-Hoops against LBSU sign because I could potentially work with deaf kids once I start teaching.” While attending North Idaho College, Griffitts served as vice president of the Deaf Club and said it was a worthwhile experience. “My fondest memory is when our club invited the deaf community for a story night,” Griffitts said. “We sat all together and told stories strictly in American Sign Language and it was just a really cool thing to be a part of.” With such a hectic basketball schedule filled with road trips, Griffitts has not been able to find a similar group to join at the UA. However, she said she holds high hopes of getting involved with the deaf community in Tucson. She even expressed interest in going to the Arizona School for the Deaf and Blind to volunteer by telling stories or interacting with them in a classroom setting. According to Griffitts, coaching would combine her two loves, basketball and American Sign Language. “I haven’t really pursued ways to combine the two,” Griffitts said. “But I would love to coach special needs kids when my career as a basketball player is over, in particular deaf kids.”

IMAN HAMDAN Junior guard and forward Kama Griffitts went from sitting on the sidelines for her entire first season at Arizona as a redshirt to being part of the starting five for the Arizona women’s basketball team this season. Griffitts transferred from North Idaho College and had to adjust to playing at the Division I level. It’s been seven games, and Griffitts looks like she’s started to make the transition. So far this season, Griffitts has started every game, and she will continue this trend Sunday at 2 p.m. when the Wildcats travel to Long Beach State. Her best performance came against UNLV on Nov. 13 when she outscored perennial leader Davellyn Whyte with 25 points. During the team’s trip to the Bahamas, Griffitts managed to grab a personal best of 10 boards — against UTEP on Nov. 23 — to lead the team in rebounding. “She is progressing quite well,” head coach Niya Butts said. “The more she plays, the more she gets into the groove of things, especially with her shooting.” In Arizona’s recent 71-66 win against North Texas on Wednesday, Griffitts tied Whyte and senior forward Cheshi Poston for second-highest scorer in the game with 14 points. “She is a really good presence on the court,” Whyte said. “Her basketball IQ is very high and she sees the game like I do, so it’s very helpful to have someone that is on the same page.” Along with her love for basketball, Griffitts is passionate about American Sign Language. “My senior year of high school I saw these deaf people using sign language and I just thought it was so beautiful,” Griffitts said. “I became obsessed with learning

rizona’s non-conference schedule is soft — we’ve all heard it. Watching top-ranked teams like Indiana and North Carolina or Duke and Ohio State face-off makes matchups with Long Beach State, UTEP and NAU seem inconsequential. I intended to write this column about how a weak non-conference schedule and a weak Pac-12 would hurt the Wildcats come NCAA tournament time. They would still be assured of a tournament berth, especially with UCLA’s Josh Smith and Tyler Lamb leaving the team. But, Arizona wouldn’t be ready for the top-level talent that comes when March Madness hits. Then I went back and looked at the UA schedule from two years ago. You know, that time former Wildcat Derrick Williams carried Arizona to the Elite Eight. The Wildcats’ first five games were against Idaho State, New Mexico State, Northern Colorado, BethuneCookman and Santa Clara. This year, Arizona’s first five opponents are Charleston Southern, UTEP, Long Beach State, NAU and Texas Tech. Charleston Southern is a favorite to win the Big South, and Texas Tech comes from the Big 12. UTEP made the NIT and Long Beach State made the NCAA tournament last year. Arizona has defeated its opponents, on average by nearly 24 points. The team is doing its job, but it hasn’t really been tested yet — and that’s fine. Head coach Sean Miller said he knows what he’s doing. “Our peak time is coming,” Miller said. Still to come on the nonconference slate are the No. 7 Florida Gators (in Tucson), a likely NCAA tournament team in C-USA’s Southern Miss, and potential matchups with Miami and No. 23 San Diego State in the Hawaiian Airlines Diamond Head Classic during winter break. Miami, from the ACC, recently upset Michigan State, and San Diego State returns its four best players from a team that made the NCAA tournament — and beat Arizona in the regular season — a year ago. There has only been one close game so far, a season-opening 82-73 win against Charleston Southern, but that was more a result of the newcomers adjusting to their new digs than anything else. During the regular season of Arizona’s Elite Eight run, the team faced just two non-conference NCAA tournament teams in BYU and Kansas, losing to both by a combined 30 points. College basketball is all about momentum. Winning basketball games at the end of the season plays a much larger role in success during the NCAA tournament than winning non-conference games four months before. The 2010-11 edition of the Wildcats proved that in finishing 30-8 and winning all but three conference games. “It goes back to our leadership and staying with the process,” sophomore guard Nick Johnson said. “Knowing that, our time’s gonna come, and when it does we gotta execute.” Arizona might win its remaining non-conference games. It also might get blown out by Florida and lose a few more games. Either way, the Wildcats will be just fine. In reality, Miller is using the early schedule as a time for Arizona to adjust its many new pieces, including four freshmen and Mark Lyons, a senior transfer and the UA’s new point guard. “Three of our five starters weren’t even here a year ago,” Miller said. “[The schedule has] given us a chance to practice more. It’s given us a chance to get through this month learning more about ourselves and maybe repairing a few things.” For a young team like Arizona, the non-conference slate is better served as a time to fit the pieces together and develop the freshmen, than worry about the perception of the team’s schedule. — Zack Rosenblatt is the sports editor.

UNION PACIFIC, led by journalism senior Zachary Vito, is striving to make the band’s interpretation of ‘60s pop a fixture of the Tucson music scene.

UA band Union Pacific puts twist on ’60s sunshine pop

T

ALEX WHELAN

hese days, it’s all too easy to forget the power of a clean pop song. For Union Pacific’s main songwriter Zachary Vito, a journalism senior at the UA, a strong song is a hooky one. “I like to describe the songs as ‘love songs you can dance to,’” said Vito, and he’s not far off. While there are plenty of bands in town to get you dancing, none of them sound quite like Union Pacific’s take on ‘60s sunshine pop. Inspired by the likes of The Zombies, Vito and his bandmates present an alternative to locals who are more interested in volume and instrumentation than restraint. Yet in tracks like the upcoming digital single “Welcome and Learn Love,” which will be released on Dec. 6, Union Pacific demonstrates a fundamental understanding of the emotional weight that comes from a few core instruments and harmonies, or a wellplaced guitar lick instead of a solo. Even in the ways that it’s different, however, the band never loses its accessibility. “The band is not off the walls,” said bassist/ singer Prabjit Virdee, “But we’re still doing our own thing. It’s energetic.” The single “Welcome and Learn Love,” soon to be released on music networking site

IF YOU GO Union Pacific plays La Cocina on Dec. 6. 21+, show starts at 10 p.m. Bandcamp, will not only be Union Pacific’s first widespread release, but also marks a year of investment in the project. Vito describes the inception of Union Pacific as “wanting a band, which quickly turned into a jam session.” After finally settling on a lineup, the band played its first gig in February at downtown’s La Cocina, which is also the location of it’s upcoming show on Dec. 6. Although its members are hard-pressed to name other bands who might sound like theirs, Union Pacific has maintained a presence in the local scene after being inspired by the wealth of new Tucson music. “When we play shows, we are playing with all of these different types of sounds,” said Virdee. “Our friends who are in bands sound totally different, so we’re not playing with

bands that necessarily sound like us, but it all comes together nicely.” “Learn Love” aptly demonstrates the strengths of the band’s sound despite the complications with recording. “It can be difficult to capture the live sound on record because you don’t always have that same energy in the studio,” Virdee noted. However, the result, recorded with local producer Jake Renaud, hardly betrays its studio origins. The song’s excitable drumming and acoustic strumming feels every bit as cathartic as their live shows, and Vito’s guitar tone exudes the kind of wintery cool that Tucsonans find themselves encountering this time of year. All this commotion is making it an exciting time for Union Pacific, which is finding itself confronted with the prospect of follow-up recordings and the exposure to a whole new wave of listeners. Yet Vito’s take on pop songwriting ensures the band won’t be out of ideas anytime soon. “Going into the band, I just wanted to play the kind of stuff I wanted to hear,” Vito said. It’s Union Pacific’s willingness to try new things and march to its own drum that makes it arguably one of the most important new bands in town. No one is doing what Zito and co. are doing, and certainly no one’s doing it better.
