About Forever Plaid Four young, eager male singers are killed in a car crash in 1964 on the way to their first big gig. Thanks to a cosmic twist of fate, they are miraculously revived for the posthumous chance to fulfill their dream: to perform the show that never was! This delightfully goofy revue features high-energy comedy, a tribute to Ed Sullivan and famous pop hits of the ’50s, including Sixteen Tons, Catch a Falling Star, Cry and Love is a Many Splendored Thing. About The Taffetas Four sisters from Muncie, Indiana, are making their national television singing debut. In a nostalgic tribute to the sounds of The Maguire Sisters, The Fontaine Sisters and the Chordettes, these sisters dance, banter, and sing top tunes from the Hit Parade, including Mr. Sandman, Where the Boys Are, Johnny Angel and Sh-Boom! About the Cast “Cassandra Klaphake [ABT’s Casting Director and Artistic Producer] has assembled many familiar faces for these two casts,” commented James Rio, ABT’s Company Manager. The Plaids are Seth Tucker (Bye Bye Birdie, Charlotte’s Web), Jason Paul (Miss Saigon, Cabaret), Michael LaMasa (Bye Bye Birdie, The Music Man) and Adam Zuick (Grease, The Music Man). Returning to ABT as the Taffetas are Jeannie Shubitz (The Music Man, Guys and Dolls), Shayla Benoit (Miss Saigon, Cabaret) and Katrina Hagofsky (A Christmas Carol, Guys and Dolls). Laura

Nick Cave: Meet Me at the Center of the Earth presented by Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art Tuesday – Wednesday & Friday - Saturday 10am – 5pm Thursday 10am – 8pm Sunday Noon – 5pm Thru Nov. 29, 2009 The shimmering ‘Soundsuits’ of Chicagobased artist and former Alvin Ailey dancer Nick Cave are multi-layered mixed-media, wearable sculptures named for the sounds made when worn. Reminiscent of African and religious ceremonial costumes as well as high fashion, they are made using scavenged ordinary materials-fabrics, crocheted doilies, beads, sequins, old bottle caps, buttons, rusted iron sticks, twigs, leaves and hair-that Cave re-contextualizes into visionary masterpieces.

bare presented by Aperio Productions Playhouse on the Park Thursday - Saturday 7:30pm Saturday – Sunday 2pm Thru Aug. 9, 2009 bare is a contemporary new musical that tells the story of a group of students at a Catholic boarding school struggling to find their own voices in a modern world that both embraces and isolates them. In their search to be ‘seen’ and ‘heard’ these teenagers confront coming of age, coming out, and coming to terms with the often contradictory but always high expectations of parents, peers, and the Church. In the spirit of shows like RENT and Spring Awakening, bare the musical speaks through an urgent, pop/rock influenced score that is the ceaseless pulse for the ‘operatic love story’ that is its heart. Sold out audiences across the country have thrilled to the emotional, honest, and exciting new musical that is bare.

“Charlyne Yi does not believe in love. Or so she says.” This according to the press notes for her new film. She’s a selfproclaimed “modern-day” skeptic on love. Her skepticism was the basis for an idea Yi and friend/director Nick Jasenovec had when developing Paper Heart, a twist on your typical Hollywood love story, combing documentary-style elements, storytelling and truly unique fantasy sequences featuring puppets. Twenty-three year old Southern California-born, Yi grabs a microphone and hits the streets to interview a variety of people on the topic of true love while Phoenix native and Arcadia High School graduate Jasenovec takes hold of the camera and captures the moments on tape. The duo with crew in hand set out on a four-week cross country road trip to learn more on the subject and possibly turn Yi into a romantic herself. Along the way, Yi meets actor Michael Cera and a romance buds. “I went to Nick and thought it would be cool to make a documentary about love,” says Yi. “Most movies have some sort of love, relationship… why not make a movie about that.” “Charlyne just wanted to make a traditional documentary. She’s a performer; she performs around Los Angeles regularly. She’s a personality, so it made sense for her to be on camera,” adds Jasenovec. While nervous as first, Yi found is easy to interview subjects for

the film. “It was scary. It was terrifying. I had done man on the street before, where I didn’t speak at all, and people got upset with me. I was worried when we went to Las Vegas that someone would want to beat me up. You don’t know what is going to happen. But, it ended up that some of the subjects I interviewed on the street were more comfortable on camera than me. I met a lot of interesting people who opened up to me, strangely. I was like wow, these stories are awesome.”

person.”

What made it easy for the subjects to open up? Jasenovec believes it was Charlyne’s innocence. “She was as nervous as the subjects were, which helped put them at ease.”

Yi adds, “Sometimes it takes a month, sometimes it takes a year for someone to realize they are in love. I think personally that there’s no true way of figuring it out, or timeline. I have met people who had love at first sight, although I might not believe in love at first sight, it worked for them and they are still together to this day. Or, you might be in love at one time and fall out of love. It doesn’t mean that love wasn’t true.”

While Yi at times calls herself a skeptic on love, she is quick to point out that, “Skeptic is taking it negative sometimes. It’s more just taking it smart and not jumping to conclusions and blindly saying ‘this must be love.’ You cannot think that ‘he said two funny things and he looks nice.’ That’s not love. Love is so much more than that. You’ve got to get to know the

“The state of romance and love… the current era is not very inspiring,” says Jasenovec, “All these reality shows… you go on dates with four girls and make out with all of them. It’s easy to understand why someone Charlyne’s age would be skeptical about it. People watch those shows and relate to them. People are so desperate to have that connection, they rush things. Charlyne came out of the movie realizing you have to wait for things to be right.”

“Love is different for everybody,” concludes Jasenovec.

marketplace… a French cookbook printed in English. The process took years, but as well all know, her career turned out to be quite successful after her first cookbook was published in 1961. The second half of the story beings in 2002 and follows Julie Powell (Amy Adams), a late-twenties New York City resident who is bored with her job at the Lower Manhattan Development Corporation. She spends her days dealing with grieving and irate citizens coping with the aftermath of 9/11. Bored with her dead end job, and aspiring to be a writer, she takes the advice of hr husband and begins a blog. A fan of cooking, she decides the tackle the enormous Julia Child Mastering the Art of French Cooking, Volume I cookbook and documents her daily experiences. She proposes to cook all 524 recipes within 365 days in her tiny apartment kitchen. As her obsession with the project grows, so does the fan support. When the media grabs hold of the story, Powell becomes a national phenomenon. The movie itself switches back and forth between stories lines and time periods, each part of the story is just as charming and entertaining as the other. Streep gives an awardworthy performance which a fellow colleague of mine said captured the

real Julia “to a T,” having worked with her years ago at a PBS station. Adams is one of the most likeable faces in Hollywood today, and she certainly does not disappoint in the film. Julie & Julia is the sleeper hit of the summer, and as it may unfortunately not be viewed by the largest audience nor see the biggest box office receipts during the blockbuster season, it proves to be one of the best and most enjoyable films we have seen in months.

Make It an Evening of Food By Randy Montgomery After heading out to see Julie & Julia in theatres, may I suggest the following light-hearted food themed films to round out your evening upon returning home: No Reservations (2007) Based on the 2001 German film, Mostly Martha, Catherine Zeta-Jones plays a chef who falls for her sous-chef (Aaron Eckhart). Mostly Martha (2001) German language pleaser about a chef who falls for her new assistant. Simply Irresistible (1999) Sarah Michelle Gellar uses a touch of magic to spice up a restaurant’s struggling business and the love life of its patrons.

Julie & Julia Cook Up Fun on Screen By Randy Montgomery I smell something cooking and it’s not beef bourguignon. It may be an Oscar nomination for Meryl Steep in director Nora Ephron’s new comedy Julie & Julia, which is based on a book of the same name and the life of world-famous chef, author and television host Julia Child.

Julie and Julia is actually two separate true stories in one. The first story line follows Child as she and her husband move to France August 6th - August 12th, 2009

from the United States in the late 1940’s. Bored, Child takes up several hobbies such as hat making and bridge. When neither of these new talents satisfy her interest, she decides to enroll in a cooking class at the Le Cordon Bleu culinary school. Child, who always said that, “I feel that I am French,” and proclaimed that she was a “renegade foodie by night,” found great pleasure in cooking the advanced dishes presented to her by the instructors, and also realized that she quite a bit of talent in the culinary realm. Her goal was to produce something that she so desired, but did not exist in the AZWeeklyMagazine.com

Once every thing is in place, we see highlights of the acts with the headliner, “The Godfather of Soul”, James Brown. “Soul Power” gives us an opportunity to go back in time for 90 minutes, almost 35 years ago, when “R & B” was medicine for the soul of the world…

“Soul Power”, a trip down memory lane… Review by Stan Robinson The year of 1974 became a memorable year for two main reasons. It was the year of the famous “Rumble in the jungle” boxing match in Kinshasa, Zaire between Muhammad Ali, who faced the heavyweight champion George Foreman. That event was presented in the 1996 documentary “When We Were Kings”. The second event was the 12-hour, three nightlong concert in Zaire during the same time frame as the boxing match. The two events were intertwined because of the assistance of boxing promoter Don King.

BABALOO’S CUBAN CAFÉ IS THE BOMB! In Southwest Phoenix - By Nicholas Connell In the foothills of Phoenix near 12th street and East Chandler Boulevard sits a very special and exquisite Cuban Café, Babaloo’s. For those who have had the pleasure of tasting this unique dining experience over the last year – my words will pale in comparison to the pleasure our pallets have enjoyed. Simply put in modern slang, “this place is the bomb!” Mayra, George, Chef Robert and Lisa Gonzales, have put their inspiration into this scratch kitchen for everyone to come and celebrate the traditional recipes of Cuban soul with the modern interpretation of rustic family recipes. Can you say pure enjoyment! This evening we were treated to fifty years of family cooking, smiles, laughter, and a celebration fit for a King! Right from a little town in Cuba named Esperanza, full of the smells of garlic, onions and cilantro. Of course there was some beautiful pairings of wine too- courtesy of Southern Wine and Spirits-that complimented Babaloo’s “antiguo y moderno”, Spanish for ‘antique and modern’ as Mama Gonzales would call it. The Croquetas de Famon opened the nights festivities paired with a Broquel Chardonnay. This countryside favorite of sweet ham minced and blended with béchamel sauce and served with a Sofrito Mornay sauce was a delight!

This was followed by an Amuse Bouche, paired with a Graffigna Pinot Grigio. As a Pineapple Ceviche in a Tostone Cup, this resurrected Latin American version was incredible! Our next course of Camarones en Salsa Verde was paired with a Monticello Crianza. These shrimp, sautéed in a traditional Basque sauce with Salsa Verde of parsley, onions and lemon juice, then served over white rice with roasted tomato and tropical pesto was a 10! And just as the ahh’s were subsiding, Chef Robert and family brought one more Cuban classic to life with Ropa Vieja, paired with a Campo Viejo Gran Reserva. This Flank steak slow cooked with tomato sauce, red wine, bell peppers, garlic and onions, then shredded and served with black beans and rice, was maybe the best of show all night! Until, the Tres Leches appeared from heaven for desert! This Latin pastry tradition, a white cake infused with a blend of sweet creams, paired incredibly with a Pyrat Cask Barrel aged Rum, was worth a pirates ransom and more! We all would have stayed for seconds, but there were fresh cigars to be rolled by Willie Guillermo of Willy Cigars, and more hot Latin music from Guitarras Latinas playing as a warm breeze brushed our cheeks while the sun slowly set in the southwest.

May your “Cuban Soul” romance with the culinary artistry and heart of the Gonzales family from Babaloo’s. It’s the best of the “old and new” Cuba in all of Arizona!

MEGA CLUB OF THE WEEK Warung (BRAZIL) Next stop…Brazil. The party mood and rawness of nature that South America is famous for are fully-infused in Warung. Surrounded by a beach and a rainforest, something about the passion of partying like mad amid the elements just feels right. If you had the use of a plane for a night, and could jet around the world to all the distant night clubs one after the other, this would unquestionably need to be on the list. Add to that international DJs like Craig Vickers and Rowan Blades, and you’ve got all the exoticism you could ever want in a night club.

entirely on your experience of the juice of the agave plant.

How to drink it down:

with 1 oz Cointreau, 3/4 oz lime juice, and ice, strained into a salt-rimmed glass.

Facts and Misconceptions

easily from an equivalent number of martinis. Instead, we find our mood to be elevated by the proper application of good tequila. This has everything to do with the quality of a good tequila.

Tequila tastes good.

THE IN’S AND OUT’S OF TEQUILA AND HOW TO DRINK IT DOWN Good tequila makes the world a better place. In all the years we’ve been drinking tequila, few harsh words have been spoken from the heart. On the contrary, it has made us kinder, gentler, more contemplative people and enhanced our conviction that life is a constant harvest of unimaginable delights. We’ve been drinking tequila with enthusiasm for the last decade. It’s our default drink. We drink widely among the other spirits, too, of course, but tequila is what’s on the counter next to the ice and lime when we arrive at one another’s houses. You can drink a lot of tequila in ten years, and we’ve come to certain conclusions based

18

Straight No lime, no salt: yes. With lime, with salt: no... Okay, maybe. I don’t know. Whatever! With Sangrita In Mexico, straight tequila is often paired with “a little blood”: 1 cup fresh-squeezed OJ, 1 oz fresh-squeezed lime juice, 1 tsp grenadine, and 12 dashes hot sauce — e.g., Cholula — refrigerate. In a Paloma Squeeze half a lime into an ice-filled glass, add a shot of not-too-expensive reposado — preferably Cazadores — and a pinch of kosher salt, top off with grapefruit soda. In a Margarita Frozen, never. Like this: 2 oz Don Julio blanco shaken

August 6th - August 12th, 2009 AZ WeeklyMagazine.com

This fact surprises the uninitiated who last tasted something called tequila (outside a margarita) in college. On Memorial Day, we celebrated the first weekend of summer with a nice blanco from the lowlands. It was as fresh as the weather, and we could taste the earth the agave was grown in. The night before, we had a super-premium that would stand up to any single malt in both complexity and richness. Completely different experiences and both very compelling. Good tequila does not cause hangovers. Plain and simple. If you are hungover the next morning, something else caused it. Tequila seems to have a mildly hallucinogenic edge. Maybe it’s just us, but the world looks a little cockeyed after a tequila or two. Tequila is not a depressant. Seldom is the time that tequila has left any of us nodding off over our plate or head lolling back on the couch, as can happen all too

Quality tequila can be paired with most foods... ...but it should not be mixed with any other liquid, with the exception of water. Preferably frozen. An excellent bottle of tequila is a fantastic gift. First, because it’s likely that the recipient of the gift doesn’t have much, if any, excellent tequila. Second, tequila manufacturers go to great lengths to make artwork of their bottles and often put those bottles in interesting boxes. Leyenda, from Gran Centenario, comes in a nifty burlap coffin. And each year, the Cuervo family commissions a renowned artist to decorate the boxes in which it places its dark-brown bottles of Reserva de la Familia.

The Night Owl If you have an entertainment event or item to include in “The Night Owl” send to brent.diggins@azweeklymagazine.com “The Night Owl” will cover restaurants, clubs, bars, celebrities, music and other miscellaneous events.

BY BRENT DIGGINS AND EFIA MOORE We think we’ve been neglecting some of the Valley’s clubs and other “hot-spots” during this long summer, so we thought we’d give you an update on what’s up. By the way, we know that YOU know that WE are the most fun journalists in Phoenix, but tell your friends to read us in print and online at azweeklymagazine.com. I know you Tweet too, so follow us @bdiggs and @myFEmy. What’s not going at Myst?: I associate Myst with loud electronic music, nonstop go-go dancers, busy bars, and sweaty, packed dance floors, but when I arrived Friday night I found more doormen than people. It was like a walking through a ghost bar, even the people working looked muted. The only up side was that I was able to get a very quick, very neat drink. As I sipped my cocktail I tried to figure out what had happened to this Scottsdale institution? Maybe it was because in the past few months its had begun to allow the 18 to 20 years old crowd in on Friday nights causing the 21 years old and up crowd to get sick of being sectioned off and herded into “drinking” areas. Maybe Myst again, turned off their faithful clientele by introducing another change of switching back to 21 years and older on Friday nights. Perhaps Myst was barren because it now promotes Friday night events through 101.5 Jamz, a hip-hop radio station, even though Myst is a notoriously well known for its mostly electronic music. Or maybe it was simply an off Friday. I hope for the sake of Myst the people in charge figure out what’s ailing the empty club soon because if there are any more nights like last Friday they will alienate even their most loyal club goers.

Hurricane Bay Does Fashion: What’s the best way to celebrate the non-existent Arizona fall season? With a Las Vegas style fashion show of course! Hurricane Bay is hosting its first ever fashion show, “Bright Lights, Sin City” in partnership with Forever 21. The event will feature cocktails, hair and makeup by Atmosphere Salon, and all the hottest fashion trends from the ever-popular Forever 21, including clothing, outerwear, lingerie, accessories and shoes. Event attendees can look forward to prizes and giveaways from the Arrowhead Town Center’s sprawling Forever 21 store, where they can go to pick up VIP passes for cabanas, table seating, and complimentary champagne before the show. The fashion show will kick off Hurricane Bay’s newest event series, Temptation Wednesdays which includes an ongoing schedule of high-profile DJ’s, contests and prizes including a weekly Las Vegas trip giveaway at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, a VIP table and bottle service at the nightclub Wasted Space. Don’t miss this must see fall

fashion event! http:// hurricanebaynightclub. com South Beach Fridays: After sweltering in the heat and coming in and watching a little “Brooke Knows Best,” I think I could do with a trip to South Beach. While it isn’t in the near future for me, I can pretend for now at the Mondrian Hotel’s Asia de Cuba restaurant as they are continuing their “South Beach Friday” nights. During their South Beach Fridays, the swanky nightspot features live upbeat Cuban sounds provided by band Arroz Con Mango, their signature Asian and Cuban-inspired menu, and the best part…$5 Mojito, Caipirinha, and Sangria specials! I haven’t been to one yet, but it sounds like fun. Now where is my panama hat and linen pants? For more info visit mondrianscottsdale.com Dow Burger: Listen to this fun and great idea to get the next price for your burger: TEXAZ Grill has introduced their “Dow Burger” and its is based on the fluctuation of the stock market. Now here’s how the price is figured (if you are working hangover…don’t continue): Check yesterday’s Dow Jones average in the morning as you read the paper, take it three decimal places to the left; and VOILA! you have your price for the burger. If that’s too hard simply multiply the figure by $0.001. If that’s too hard…you’re a moron. So if you want cheap burgers (don’t own stocks), cheer for the stock market to crash. If you have lots of stocks cheer for it to go up because you’ll be able to afford a burger at any price (don’t hesitate to contribute to the Night Owl slush fund too). So what is the Dow Burger? The burger is grilled fresh ground chuck topped with crispy bacon, American cheese, fried onion rings and TEXAZ Grill’s BBQ sauce. For more info visit texazgrill.com. Do You Think You’re a Pimp?: Or are you a REAL pimp? Well, then prove it at Afterlife’s “Pimp My Saturdays.” The concept is simple. Show up with the most girls before midnight and win all sorts of cool prizes for you and your ladies, AND get entered into a monthly drawing to win a limo package and a night out. Afterlife, formerly known as e4, is open until 4:00 a.m. and is all-ages (and no liquor).

recently held an open audition, looking for new talent. Many comedians at NCT came in with no prior experience, so NCT opens auditions to anyone with the guts to get onstage. A great way to find that diamond in the rough? Sure. But a simple ‘cattle call’ can be a mad house. The directors have seen everything imaginable at auditions, including people who don’t speak any English, actors who think shouting obscenities will impress the owners of a clean comedy theatre and even some folks who couldn’t keep their shirts on. The process is weird, but open auditions also uncovers talent like NCT’s newest players Heath Wilcock, Mark Alderson and Anthony Thornton who also perform stand up at the Comedy Spot.

THE MADDEN CURSE (An Eerie Football Jinx Too Real to Ignore) Superstitions are pretty prevalent in almost every sport. Whether it’s the North Carolina shorts that Michael Jordan wore under his Bulls shorts for every game�, Patrick Roy talking to the goal posts, to Roger Clemens who always touched the head of the Babe Ruth statue before playing at Yankee stadium, sports athletes of all kinds follow these quirky behaviors because they believe in luck. The same goes for curses, something that no sports player really likes to talk about. The most famous curse is that of the Billy Goat, which seems to have decimating the Cubs, as they haven’t been to a World Series in 63 years. The curse on topic though deals with football. Specifically, the all too ironic “Madden Curse”, one of the more feared curses to this day. Starting in the year 2000, a player from the NFL was selected to appear on the yearly installment of EA’s Madden football game, one of the most popular and successful video games of all time. Once becoming the game’s cover athlete however, a laundry list of bad things have happened to these players afterwards. Several NFL players, who play the game religiously, prefer not to appear on the cover because they fear the worst. In last February’s Super Bowl, Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald and Pittsburgh Steelers safety Troy Polamalu were the brightest stars on a

glittering stage. On April 24, EA Sports announced the longhaired pair would share the cover of Madden NFL 2010, the newest edition of one of the world’s most successful videogame franchises. It’s an honor that’s historically been given to the top players of the previous NFL season — and one that may cause Arizona and Pittsburgh fans nightmarish visions of sprained ankles, torn ACLs and wasted seasons. That’s because many believe gracing a Madden NFL box is the surest path to the inactive list. Since announcer John Madden first ceded the cover of his eponymous game for the 1999 edition, one of the NFL’s quirkiest subplots has been the “Madden Curse,” which appears to leave the game’s cover boys injured or ineffective the following season. “The jinx thing bites us every year,” Chris Erb, a marketing director for the juggernaut video game, said in 2007. “I haven’t told this to people, but I’ve got a bottle of champagne in my office that we’re ready to pop once someone breaks the curse.” Some people think this is nonsense, others a coincidence. How about we let the facts speak for themselves? In 2000, Hall of Famer and the great Lions running back Barry Sanders, who was a lock to break the all-time rushing

record of Walter Payton that season (or the following) shocks the entire world and announces his retirement 7 days before training camp starts. No one on earth seems very satisfied by the non-reasons he gives. Madden Curse 1 Naysayers 0 In 2001, running back Eddie George was on the cover of the game. He had one of the worst statistical seasons of his career, failed to break 1000 yards rushing for the first time in his career, and the Titans finished 7-9 and failed to make the playoffs. Worst of all, George couldn’t handle a pass at the end of the season, which resulted in a Ray Lewis touchdown and effectively ended their season. And to think, they were in the Superbowl the year before. George retired 3 years later at an early age from the wear and tear on his body. Madden Curse 2 Naysayers 0 In 2002, quarterback Daunte Culpepper was on the cover of the game. He suffered severe setbacks in his output, throwing for far more interceptions and less touchdowns. Culpepper never looked like the same player as he did the previous season

The fastest serve in a game of tennis was in 1963 by Michael Sangster. It was clocked at 154 mile per hour.

when he threw 40 touchdowns. He also suffered a serious injury that cost him to miss 4 games and the Vikings had one of their worst seasons in nearly 20 years. Culpepper is currently sitting on the bench in the NFL and is no longer considered a star player. Madden Curse 3 Naysayers 0 In 2003, running back Marshall Faulk appeared on the cover of the game. Again, as this trend continues, Faulk had one of the worst statistical seasons of his career, and a nagging ankle injury haunting him all season. He was never the same player as the one on “the greatest show on turf” of years past. He never seemed to be able to get healthy after this year and never cracked the 1000 yard mark. Injuries forced him into retirement. Madden Curse 4 Naysayers 0 In 2004, Michael Vick appeared on the cover of the game. Unfortunately, Vick broke his leg during a pre-season game before the season even started and missed most of the season. The previous year he had his best statistical season of his career. Vick never again touched those numbers, and was found guilty on organizing a dog-

Even though “Shoeless Joe” Jackson was barred from baseball’s Hall of Fame for his role in the 1919 “Black Sox” scandal, his shoes can be found there.


Madden Curse 5 Naysayers 0 In 2005, linebacker Ray Lewis appeared on the cover. He had a solid season, only missing 1 game because of injury. He suffered a slight set back in the amount of tackles, but his turnovers dropped from 8 the previous year to 1 that season. Lewis also failed to intercept a pass for the first time in his career. He also was found not guilty on federal drug charges. Besides some minor set backs, Lewis had a pretty good season.

fighting ring. He is currently in jail.

has struggled to regain his previous form, was cut from the Seahawks, and currently is not on an NFL roster. Madden Curse 7 Naysayers 1 In 2008, quarterback Vince Young appeared on the cover. He missed one game with a quadricep injury but fared very similar statistically to his rookie campaign. Besides a terrible passing season where he threw 17 interceptions and a rumor that he was going to retire, he remained relatively healthy.

Madden Curse 5 Naysayers 1 In 2006, quarterback Donovan McNabb appeared on the cover of Madden. Prior to that season, McNabb had a career year and the Eagles made it to the Superbowl. The curse hit him in early in the season where he suffered a hernia. He tried to fight through the pain for most of the season and played terribly, throwing a large number of interceptions. His season was cut short when he was knocked out of the game against the Dallas Cowboys and then decide to have surgery to repair the hernia ending his season. The Eagles finished 5-11, their worst record in half a decade.

Madden Curse 8 Naysayers 2 Brett Favre appeared on the cover of Madden 2009, becoming the first retired NFL player to do so. Several months later, he announced his desire to play again. Packers management made this a complete mess as training camp started, failing to grant Brett Farve’s wish to be re-activated. The Packers have decided to focus on the youngster Aaron Rogers, as Ted Thompson does not seem to care about putting his best players on the field right now. This created a media circus, and now looks as though Brett Favre will be lucky for a chance to play for a different team.

Madden Curse 6 Naysayers 1 In 2007, running back Shaun Alexander appeared on the cover. Much like the trend before this, prior to this season, Alexander had MVP numbers and set an NFL record with 27 touchdowns. Alexader broke his foot early on in the season causing him to miss almost half the season, and his own touchdown record was broken by LaDainian Tomlinson. Alexander

There you have it. So far the Curse has affected 8 out of 10 players pretty drastically, you really can’t argue with the numbers. Will our beloved Arizona Cardinals be affected by the talented Fitzgerald gracing this year’s cover? Only time will tell. Either way, Madden Football is a proven, top-notch video game to be loved for generations. The curse if anything, adds a touch of controversy that ultimately takes the charm of the game to an even higher level. They say “any publicity is good publicity”, as long as your team is unaffected, of course.

THE DESERT IS ABOUT TO GET A WHOLE LOT GREENER Green Day Launches First North American Tour In Over Three Years!  Multi-Platinum Band Hits The Road In Support Of New Album, 21St Century Breakdown, To Be Released Worldwide On Friday, May 15Th, 2009 Reprise Records’ Grammy® Award winning rock band Green Day has announced they will hit the road for their first proper tour of the United States and Canada in more than three years beginning July 3rd in Seattle, WA. The first leg of the tour will cross North America through the summer and will make a stop in Phoenix at US Airways Center on Saturday, August 22. The show will begin at 8:00pm. Tickets go on sale Friday, May 8 at 10am.  The band has come a long way from its stage-diving roots to sell millions of records by melding punk with pop. The rock opera “American Idiot” and hits such as “Wake Me Up When September Ends” made the band rock royalty, along with Coldplay and U2. The trio, inspired by artists such as Queen and Bruce Springsteen, deliver swelling flourishes, harmonies, anthemic choruses and enormous riffs. Although Green Day long ago traded open-throttle minimalism for radio-friendly songs, it still has the anger that sparked a generation to slam-dance to the likes of Fear and Black Flag.

32

Green Day decided to take the plunge and move to a major label, signing to Warner Brothers subsidiary Reprise Records, despite bigger offers from elsewhere. A&R man Rob Cavallo

was also recruited as producer for their third album. Released in 1994, Dookie gradually stalked the charts going on to sell over nine million copies in the USA. The album tracks “Long View”, “Basket Case”, “Welcome To Paradise”, “When I Come Around” and “She”, in addition to the soundtrack cut “J.A.R. (Jason Andrew Relva)”, received extensive airplay on rock radio and MTV. The band’s arduous touring schedule was the chief reason for their rise, and was topped off by appearances on the 1994 Lollapalooza package and the revived Woodstock event. Green Day is touring in support of their long-awaited eighth studio album 21st Century Breakdown, which will be released globally by Reprise Records on Friday, May 15th, 2009. Singer-guitarist Billie Joe Armstrong, bassist Mike Dirnt and drummer Tre Cool have been at work writing, arranging, and recording 21st

August 6th - August 12th, 2009 AZWeeklyMagazine.com

Century Breakdown since early 2006 with producer Butch Vig (Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins). The first single, “Know Your Enemy” was released to radio and digital retailers on April 16th. Green Day recently performed 21st Century Breakdown in its entirety during a series of warm-up club shows for hometown fans in the Bay Area. In its review of a show at Oakland’s Fox Theater, Rolling Stone commented that the band, augmented by guitarists Jason White and Jeff Matika, and keyboardist Jason Freese, had the “Quadrophenialike hang of 21st Century Breakdown’s classic rock melodies and lifetimepunk drive down solid” and that the album is “rock opera in which the rock always comes first.” “21st Century Breakdown is Green Day’s best album,” the reviewer concluded, “and at the Fox, they proved that the rock opera can be as punk as a Clash 45.”

21st Century Breakdown is Green Day’s first studio album since 2004’s two-time Grammy Award-winning punk-rock opera American Idiot, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard chart, spawned five hit singles and went on to sell more than 12 million copies worldwide. In short, there’s plenty of enthusiasm and highpowered energy in Green Day’s tank and Phoenix is in for a rare treat indeed. TICKETS ON-SALE FRIDAY, MAY 8th at 10am Tickets priced at $49.50 and $25.00 will be available for purchase at www.livenation.com, US Airways Center Box Office and Ticketmaster. To charge by phone, call 1-800-7453000. All dates, acts, and ticket prices are subject to change without notice.


(EN VOGUE & BELL BIV DEVOE; SATURDAY AUG. 8TH AT CELEBRITY THEATER) The funky divas of En Vogue are back and badder than ever featuring Cindy Herron, Dawn Robinson, Terry Ellis and Maxine Jones. The Grammynominated all-female R&B, dance club, and soul vocal quartet has sold over 20 million albums and singles worldwide. They have won more MTV Video Music Awards than any other female group in MTV history (a total of 7). And the group was named the second most successful girl group of the 1990s according to Billboard magazine. Songs like “Hold On,” “My Lovin’ (You’re Never Gonna Get It),” “Giving Him Something He Can Feel,” “Free Your Mind,” and “Whatta Man” featuring Salt-N-Pepa, are just a sampling of the mega hits made famous by the pop/ R&B super group. Later this year, they will release their 20th anniversary CD. Rising from the remnants of New Edition, but funkier, sexier & edgier

- with mega-albums & super singles, it’s Bell Biv DeVoe! The hip-hop/R&B fusion band is a splinter from original ‘80s group New Edition featuring three former New Edition members: Michael (“Biv”) Bivins, Ricky (“Slick”) Bell and Ronnie (“RD”) DeVoe. Bell Biv DeVoe debuted with its first single, “Poison,” off the album of the same name in 1990. Performed in the style of ‘New Jack Swing,’ a blend of hip-hop and R&B, the single was an immediate success. The album went platinum three times. Other hits included “Do Me,” “Word to the Mutha” and “She’s Dope.” The success of the New Jack Swing music style is said to have influenced hiphop in the coming decade and was an often copied thread technique among upcoming musical talents. Tickets ($43 and $53) are still available at Celebrity Theatre or online at www. celebritytheatre.com. To charge by phone, call 602-267-1600 ext.1. All tickets are subject to a surcharge. Celebrity Theatre is conveniently located on 32nd St., just 4 blocks south of the Loop 202 freeway, in Phoenix.

Naked Dave’s Local Distortion The Naked Truth: WOW! What a head bangin weekend. If you were not at Club Red on Friday the 31st, you missed the Rock and Roll social event of the summer! Naked Dave’s Music hosted the night of Arizona’s rock family. With a red carpet list consisting of Dan Wexler and John Aquilino of Icon, Pete Loren of Trixter, Steve Conley of F5, the gents of Metal Elvis, Jack of Mudd Guitars, Tom of B.C. Rich, Creepsville 666, Prophet and Lucius of St. Madness, Bernie and John of Dagger, it just goes to show you that the valley’s musical family is ALIVE, and thriving.

The night was full of guitar screaming solos, leather pants, and bra busting music, from both local/national acts. The night started with Chasing Claymores, a band out of San Diego, California. With their Good Charlotte (but better) meets Theory of a Deadman style of music, these young men sure make it hard to be the band after them. With Joey Shelly (Lead Vocals), Charlie Santilena (bass), Ian Hoey (drums), and Robbie Blatt (guitar/ vocals), this band shows us a level of energy and charisma. Look out Billboard here they come! Another favorite of the night was

34

August 6th - August 12th, 2009 AZWeeklyMagazine.com

Tucson’s own Love Mound. A trio that is Jimi Hendrix meets ZZ Top (with as dash of COC), these boys south of the valley brought it loud and hard. As Mikey (singer/guitar player) will tell you, “That’s how we roll, loud and hard, DEAL WITH IT! With songs like El Remolino, Burn the Sun, and Across the Plains, all I can say is, move over ZZ Top, there’s a new gunslinger in town! At the Red Owl, Miles to Nowhere played their own style of Punk/Indie tunes. Another trio, this Green Day meets Josie and the Pussycats group, draws you in with hooky tunes, and the cute, and bouncy, Kristen Taylor (vocals, and guitars) on the mic. With Stephen (bass), and new comer to the band Russ “Thunder” Ives on drums, completing this band, you do not want to miss them. Kristen is endorsed by Greg Bennett guitars, and Red Bull, and she also hosts an open mic on Sunday nights at The Big Fish Pub in Tempe.

Up next was The Relics, from the north side of the valley. These Iggy Pop meets The Ramones with some Red Hot Chili Peppers mixed in gents; prove you can rock it at any age. Keeping the Punk scene alive and well in the valley, with Vic (vocals and guitar), D Tease (bass guitar and vocals), Dan (lead guitar and vocals), and Terry Silveus on drums, they truly have musical genius flowing in their veins.


Headlining at Club Red that night was Big Cock. And all I can say is if you were not there, YOU MISSED OUT big time! BC has not played in the valley in over a year, and they brought people out of the woodwork.

Robert Mason (lead vocals) was spot on, and Dave Henzerling’s guitar slinging, showed us how guitar playing should be done. John Covington pulverized us on drums, and Mr. Colby (bass) held up the bottom end like a rock! They earned the right to be called “The Hardest Working Band” in Rock and Roll. Last, (but surely not least) was Bash. Boys out of El Paso, Texas, these 16-17 year old teens gave the big boys a run for their money. These young men are very talented; and give them a year and they could be all over the radio. Also playing Joe’s Grotto on Saturday August 1st, the crowd could not believe these guys were just teenagers. Members include Sebastian Felix (Vocals, lead guitar, composition), Chris Frias (Rhythm guitar), Adrian Rodriguez (drums), and Michael Russo (bass). Just a note to the young lady’s out there, they look as good as they sound so don’t miss them next time they are in town! Over all Naked Dave’s Music Charity night was a great success. We would

All black hardware, Tune-O-Matic bridge and 3 X 3 Grover tuners. The MTM-01 has a great crunchy tone for today’s modern metal, as well deep undertones.

These axes are custom made to your liking, from beginning to end. Robert Mazzullo says “The only limit is your imagination”

like to thank Mrs. Naked, Kevin Kavanaugh, Big Chief Double Down, Jack of Mudd Guitars, Tom of B.C. Rich Guitars, Larry of Shirts N Things, Naked Dave’s daughters, Punky and Katie for working the door, Chrys Armijo for working the raffle, and Ron Kennedy. Without you guys this night would not have happened.

LIVE! SECTION

Closing the night at the Red Owl was Dirty Dan and the Distributors. Ruby Cheeks of KDKB once called them Johnny Cash meets X, style of Rockabilly. Another favorite of the night, they are definitely “bad to the bone”. With songs like Gone Fistin, Hot Rod Baby, and Payson, Dirty Dan and his boys took us on a musical ride that we DID NOT want to end. A friendly bunch of guys, with Dirty Dan (lead vocals/guitar), Sean “Jeremy” Dogar (bass/vocals), Tom Jones (drums) and new comer El Corko (lead guitar), you do not want miss these guys the next time they play.

CHEAP TRICK – THE LATEST (CT UNLIMITED) For those only familiar with Cheap Trick from their handful of radio hits, listen up… it’s time to learn more about what is arguably rock’s most underrated band. Their sense of humor is evident as the title could easily be interpreted as ‘The L.A. Test’ showing the band at Venice Beach, CA combing the beach with metal detectors while guitarist Rick Nielsen is buried up to his elbows in sand. (Somewhat odd for a band from Rockford, Illinois.) In the midst of their 35th year together and their 15th studio album, it’s only natural to assume that this (or any band for that matter) is running out of gas. While the band certainly hasn’t knocked it out of the park with every release of their career, if there’s any justice this release will find the band receiving the praise and attention that has eluded them with subsequent releases. This is easily their Sgt. Pepper - and not simply because there is a Beatles-esque feel to alot of the record. The vibe and flow throughout, well crafted songwriting and at times the sound makes you realize this is a masterpiece waiting to be discovered.

38

“When The Lights Are Out” may be a Slade cover, although you’d never know it here as Cheap Trick puts their stamp all over it. “Miss Tomorrow” is utter pop brilliance while “Sick Man Of Europe” (also August 6th - August 12th, 2009

the name of the band Nielsen and bassist Tom Petersson played together in before Cheap Trick) is easily the album’s heaviest track and arguably the sickest bass lines the 12 string bassist has ever put on tape. “Every day You Make Me Crazy”, “California Girl” and “Alive” are upbeat, tight rockers while “Everybody Knows” and “Closer, The Ballad Of Burt And Linda” are so close to The Beatles that Yoko Ono and Michael Jackson’s estate are probably on the phone at this moment trying to collect royalties. The songs are interwoven into a pattern of sheer pop ecstasy from one to the next. A number of tracks are slower and at first listen may take repeated listening to absorb the brilliance within. Rich sounds and fabulous production that continuously reminds one of The Beatles is admittedly the band’s biggest overall influence. So much so that the band will be performing the fab four’s Sgt. Pepper album in its entirety for a 10 day Vegas run this September. So they proudly wear it on their sleeve. At over a dozen spins as of this writing, it gets better each and every time. After 2006’s Rockford, which itself was a very strong album, did anyone expect them to top that? Well, expected or not, they have. – Stephen Wilkinson Rockzone Records, 2155 E. University #104, Tempe, AZ 85281 www.rockzonerecords. com / www.myspace.com/ rockzonerecords

(Those All Too Familiar Dreams and What They All Mean) Dreams… we all have them, each and every night. Some are good - some not so good. And a few are just outright bizarre. Each dream is a mixture of our biological instincts, our cultural assumptions and our own personal experience. As we dream, our brains create stories from these ingredients, sometimes to “replay” recent events, and at times voice concerns that our waking minds are not yet ready to face. These stories are occasionally laced with complicated plots, and sometimes populated with elaborate visual or verbal puns that help us unlock their meaning. Symbols are the language of dreams. And acquiring the ability to interpret your dreams is a powerful tool. In analyzing your dreams, you can learn about your deep secrets and hidden feelings. Remember that no one is a better expert at interpreting your dreams than yourself. Every detail and every element of your dream is extremely important. Each symbol represents a feeling, a mood, a memory or something from your unconscious. Look closely at the characters, animals, objects, places, emotions, and even color and numbers that are depicted in your dreams. Even the most trivial symbol can be significant. With practice and close attention, you can gain an understanding of the hidden secrets your dreams are trying to tell you. Dream: I am flying, swimming or dancing joyfully Description: You are flying, feeling free. Your flight may evolve as an escape from some bad situation. In an alternate version, you may be moving freely through water or dancing with abandon. Frequency: Although the frequency of this dream varies widely, those who have experienced it often remember it as a favorite dream. Usual meanings: You feel great, able to soar as high as you wish, you feel as though your possibilities are limitless and that you can transcend anything. Flying dreams can also be tied to spiritual aspirations. Swimming may suggest the feeling that you can explore your depths confidently, and dancing may reflect joy in your body, an increasing sensuality. Dream: I am healed, born or reborn Description: You or another person is healed, gives birth or is reborn. Frequency: Relatively rare, it may accompany a new start in your waking life or recovery from an illness. Usual meanings: You are feeling hopeful, renewed or better, or that something is stirring to life within you. When you or another person

is giving birth, it often means that you feel as though you are improving or that something new has been born in you. A common dream during pregnancy, it represents your hopes for your new baby. If you are grieving, the birth imagery may express your hope for a new life for your loved one.

Dream: I am falling or drowning Description: You are falling through the air, frightened. A variation may be that you are sinking in water, in danger of drowning. Frequency: Falling is one of the most common nightmares; drowning dreams are less so. Falling dreams usually occur when you feel insecure, and drowning dreams take place when you feel overwhelmed. Falling dreams may be accompanied by an actual fall from bed. Drowning dreams have been associated with severe edema. Usual meanings: Falling dreams often signify that you feel insecure or as though you have no support. Drowning dreams often occur when you feel overwhelmed by having too much to do and are feeling ready to give up.

Dream: I am lost or trapped Description: You are lost, perhaps feeling desperate. You may be trying to find your way in a forest, in city streets, inside a large building, or in some other maze-like structure. Or you may dream that you are unable to move, perhaps powerless to scream or breathe. The circumstances vary. You may be buried alive, or caught in a web or a cage, or trapped in some other manner, usually feeling terrified. Frequency: Lost or trapped dreams are common. Some people have them frequently, others only in crisis. They typically occur when you feel great confusion or conflict about how to act in some waking situation. Usual meanings: You may feel be feeling lost, trapped or confused by something, that you’ve lost your way and don’t know what to do or where to turn. Dreams can be powerful sources of life changing information if we pay close enough attention. These sneak peak glimpses into your inner self can help you identify exactly what your conscious is trying to convey – and how your intuition can help resolve real life problems, circumstances, wants and needs, goals and personal relationships with those dearest to you. This “window” to the subconscious mind along with the information flowing into or out of it can surely assist in achieving a clearer perspective of the powerful feeling, thoughts, ideas, desires and psychological factors that play an enormous role in your everyday life. Afterall, the idea of truly understanding life and the world we live in is of the utmost importance. Tonight, when your head hits the pillow, remind yourself to take note of your journey. You may just unlock the door to purpose, direction, creativity and clarity along with many of the answers you’ve been desperately seeking.

RIDE! SECTION

Nissan Maxima

Picture and Review by Chad Haire   The previous Maxima had a reputation as being a great sport sedan, so I wanted to get the new updated model for comparison. This is now a front-wheel drive sedan. The advantage is more interior and trunk room. The disadvantage is that most of the weight is moved to the front, which results in a slight loss of handling when taking fast corners. Fortunately, the factory engineers did a good job of balancing the chassis, so the Maxima still handles well. The ride quality is very smooth. There is a sport suspension option, but I think the standard set-up is more practical.   The only engine is the proven 3.5 liter as found in the 370-Z sports car. It’s hooked to a belt-driven CVT

transmission. As a rule, I don’t like these gearboxes, finding them noisy with slow shifting. But again, the engineers did a great job on this one. It’s quiet, responds to commands and has a manual-shift override divided into six-gear ratios. I clocked a 0-60 mph time of 6.1 seconds in manual mode and 5.8 seconds in the automatic “drive” setting. Fast enough for me.   While the Maxima has been slightly “detuned” when compared to the previous versions, it’s still a nice sporty sedan. The base Maxima starts at about $26,000. Mine was a loaded SV that came with about everything, so it hit $33,900.
