ARTS! “The Price of Freedom”: An Inspiring New Musical Tribute to WWII

Presented by Hale Centre Theatre at Hale Centre Theatre Monday – 7:00 p.m. Tuesday – 7:00 p.m. This inspiring and innovative musical tribute saluting the Greatest Generation is told entirely through the real, powerfully felt letters exchanged by those who served in World War II and their wives, sweethearts and mothers back on the home front. Surrounded by authentic pictures and newsreel footage, along with vintage radio broadcasts and an original score, the nine-member cast brings the ‘40s era of hardship, heartbreak and hope back to life, and is an emotional reminder of the true sacrifices and continuing costs paid by soldiers and their families.

Doubt, A Parable

Presented by TheaterWorks at Peoria Center for the Performing Arts Thursday-Saturday - 7:30 p.m. Saturday - 5:00 p.m. Sunday - 2:00 p.m. “What do you do when you’re not sure?” asks Father Flynn, the charismatic young priest, as he begins a sermon. Audiences soon learn that little is certain in John Patrick Shanley’s brilliant, aptly titled play. An Oscar nominated film and winner of a Pulitzer Prize and a Tony Award, Doubt, A Parable provides a rare evening of theatre that entertains and captivates emotionally, psychologically, and intellectually. Starring Robyn Allen, Theater Works Artistic Director as Sister Aloysius, Christopher Haines as Father Flynn, Chanel Brag as Mrs. Muller and Amanda Noel as Sister James.

MURRAY PERAHIA

Copperstar’s next production of The Wizard of Oz and upcoming production of Les Miserables School Edition are both now in rehearsal but the theater needs funds to relocate to a Studio space where they can build sets, build and store costumes and props as well as run many of the day to day operations of the organization.

Sunday, October 7th at 7:30pm In the more than 35 years he has been performing on the concert stage, Grammy Award-winning pianist Murray Perahia has become one of the most sought-after and cherished pianists of our time, performing in all of the major international music centers and with every leading orchestra. He will perform Haydn’s Sonata in D Major, H 24; Schubert’s Moments Musicaux, Op. 94; Beethoven’s Sonata No. 14 in C-sharp minor, “Quasi una fantasia,” Op. 27, No. 2; Schumann’s Faschingschwank aus Wien; Chopin’s Impromptu No. 2 in F-sharp Major, Op. 36; and Chopin’s Scherzo No. 1 in B minor.

Reviewers’ Roundtable The following quotes were pulled from AZ Weekly Entertainment Magazine’s film columnists’ full reviews in an effort to generate a well-rounded overview of each of this weekend’s new releases.

Randy Montgomery, AZ Weekly Film Critic

Listen to Joseph J. Airdo’s “Movie Maverick” radio segment, every Friday morning at 8:30 a.m. during “The Daily Blender with Jeffry O’Brien” on KBSZ - NBC 1260 AM and 96.1 FM

‘Fred Won’t Move Out’ Two grown children and their aging parents, with levity and sadness, struggle with the decision whether the older generation should stay in the house where they have lived for 50 years. Elliott Gould plays the title character. (R – 100 minutes) Joseph: “Fred Won’t Move Out” lacks any narrative drive whatsoever. Writer/director Richard Ledes’ new drama is a very stagnant motion picture. In fact, its only strengths are its actors’ performances. Other than those, which – to be fair – are emotionally resonant, Ledes does not give viewers much of a reason to remain with these characters for even the movie’s brief 74-minute runtime. Nothing is any different at the end of the flick than it was at the start of it. Instead, we merely watch these characters go about their everyday existence. A better title would be simply “Fred Won’t Move.” (Grade: F)

September 27th, 2012 - October 3rd, 2012

‘Hotel Transylvania’

‘Looper’*

Adam Sandler plays Dracula, the owner of a lavish five-stake resort, where monsters and their families can live it up. However, his world could come crashing down when one ordinary guy (Andy Samberg) stumbles on the hotel and takes a shine to his daughter (Selena Gomez). (PG – 91 minutes)

Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays a hired gun who mops up messes for the mob by assassinating targets that are sent 30 years back in time until his future self (Bruce Willis) suddenly shows up as one of said targets. (R – 118 minutes) *Screened after deadline.

Joseph: If it were not for Adam Sandler’s horrifically grating voice, “Hotel Transylvania” may have actually been a tolerable motion picture. Granted, “tolerable” is a far cry from “good,” but it is still a step up. Having said that, the new animated adventure also tells a story that is somewhat bland in which conflicts are resolved way too easily. It is entertainingly energetic and visually remarkable but it feels as though, in an effort to make the movie as family-friendly as possible, usually edgy screenwriters Peter Baynham and Robert Smigel sucked not only the blood but also the life right out of it.

Bet You Didn’t Know! by Stan Robinson

of all, its characters are so completely developed that they feel real and are therefore people about whom you genuinely care. It is the kind of flick that really speaks to its audience – and does so sincerely. (Grade: B)

Several ‘Spider-Man’ (2002) costumes were created at $100,000 each. Four were stolen and Columbia Pictures offered a $25,000 reward for their return. The costumes were never recovered. wings of two seniors (Emma Watson and Ezra Miller) who welcome him to the real world and help him travel the strange course through the uncharted territory of high school. (PG-13 – 103 minutes) Stan: Writer/director Stephen Chbosky, with the rare opportunity to present his original literary work on screen, takes full advantage by presenting characters full of life and delivering moments we’ve all experienced as we grew in our own right from those grammar school/ high school years into young adults. And yes, those reflections by we the viewer both pleasant and trying, are the elements that shaped us into who we are today, which “The Perks of Being a Wallflower” so aptly and lovingly reminds us. (Grade: B) Joseph: “The Perks of Being a Wallflower” intelligently and emotionally captures the essence of what it feels like to experience high school as anyone other than those who sit at the popular table at lunch. In other words, writer/director Stephen Chbosky’s movie – which he adapted from his own novel – is one with which the vast majority of viewers will be able to identify. Best

‘Side by Side’

‘Pitch Perfect’ Anna Kendrick plays a young woman who takes her university’s acoustic singing group out of its world of traditional arrangements and perfect harmonies into all-new mash-ups, helping it to climb its way to the top of the cutthroat world of college a cappella. (PG-13 – 112 minutes) Joseph: There are times during “Pitch Perfect” when one feels as though they are experiencing the greatness of this generation’s “Bring It On.” However, there are other times when one feels as though they are experiencing the acute annoyance of jagged fingernails slowly scraping a chalkboard. That is to say that director Jason Moore’s new musical comedy is extremely uneven, brilliantly walking the thin line of biting satire one moment only to forcefully cross said line the next. The fact that the film projectile vomits on its own genius – literally – is worse than if it were all bad to begin with. (Grade: C)

Keanu Reeves narrates a tour of the past and the future of filmmaking, explores the development of cinema and the impact of digital filmmaking via interviews with James Cameron, David Fincher, David Lynch, Martin Scorsese, Steven Soderbergh and other directors. (NR – 98 minutes) Joseph: Unless you are a filmmaker, an aspiring filmmaker or a retired filmmaker, “Side by Side” will likely garner the following audible reaction: “TMI!” (For those who are not knowledgeable of abbreviated lingo, that is translated as “Too Much Information!”) In other words, filmmaker Christopher Kenneally’s new documentary includes details about the motion picture production process that require such specific knowledge that they lose all sense of meaning – not to mention entertainment – to the Average Joe. Having said that, the directors that participate in the discussion possess such genius that you are guaranteed to learn something interesting. (Grade: D)

‘Solomon Kane’ James Purefoy plays a 16th century killing machine who, after finding his spirituality after an encounter with the Devil’s Reaper (Ian Whyte), embarks on a mission to take down the overload (Samuel Roukin), whose human raiders are ravaging England. (R – 104 minutes) Joseph: While watching “Solomon Kane,” one cannot help but expect to see star James Purefoy break character for a moment, turn to the camera and say with a smile, “Just kidding!” prompting the motion picture to drop its gloom and doom tone and finally become fun. Writer/ director Michael J. Bassett’s new fantasy-fueled adventure flick, which is based around the world first imagined by “Conan” creator Robert E. Howard, is simply too solemn to be even remotely entertaining. The set pieces are spectacular and the atmosphere is astounding but the self-serious story is certain to put viewers to sleep well before the action kicks in. (Grade: D)


‘Stars in Shorts’ Colin Firth, Keira Knightley, Judi Dench, Jason Alexander, Lilly Tomlin, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Julia Stiles, Wes Bentley, Kenneth Branaugh, Tom Hiddleston, Jennifer Morrison and Sarah Paulson star in a collection of seven short films. (NR – 108 minutes) Joseph: “Stars in Shorts” is a mixed bag. A comedy about a funeral procession is riotously funny and a musical about a man trying to make it in show business is as entertaining as it is poetic. Meanwhile a dramedy about seniors reaching out to one another by social media is extremely enjoyable yet goes nowhere, a drama set at a family entertainment restaurant is disturbing yet simple and a comedy about a neighbor slowly losing his mind is intriguing yet pointless. Finally, a monologue about sexting is just plain predictable while a thriller about superhuman powers is beyond boring. (Grade: C)

‘Ticket Out’ Alexandra Breckenridge plays a mother who, with the assistance of a mysterious man (Ray Liotta), takes her children and flees her abusive

Joseph: For a film whose mid-story twist suggests that it wants to avoid being considered just a dumb B-movie, “Ticket Out” sure has a lot of holes in its plot. The new thriller from writer/director Doug Lodato leaves out some fairly significant details, thereby severely crippling its credibility. However, even if all of the pieces of the puzzle were in place, the motion picture would still not be worth seeing due to that aforementioned twist, which only makes the entire experience seem silly. Star Ray Liotta looks as though he is operating at half-power here and you cannot really blame him. (Grade: D)

Téchiné’s latest presents a milieu of eclectic characters moving in and out of the orbits of a senior-aged writer (André Dussollier) and middle-aged real estate agent (Carole Bouquet), with a sense that each are hoping their with involvement will move them forward with living life, either collectively or independently of the other. Moving his story around in time, as well as the secondary characters’ woes and issues of their lives, the director paints a live portrait contrasting the reality of living life vs the perceptions received from living it. In French with English subtitles. (Grade: C+)

‘Won’t Back Down’*

‘Unforgivable’ André Dussollier plays a crime writer living in Venice while working on his new novel meets and soon marries his real-estate agent (Carole Bouquet). Relocated to a remote house on Torcello Island, his obsession with his wife’s daily whereabouts takes a dark turn. (NR – 111 minutes)

Maggie Gyllenhaal and Viola Davis play two determined mothers, one a teacher, who will stop at nothing to transform their children’s failing inner city school. Facing a powerful and entrenched bureaucracy, they risk everything to make a difference in the education and future of their children. (PG – 100 minutes) *Screened after deadline.

Bet You Didn’t Know! by Stan Robinson

Actor Christoph Waltz, who won an Oscar® for playing the Jew Hunter in ‘Inglorious Basterds’ (2009), has a son who is a rabbi.

Soundbite Spotlight The following quotes were pulled from interviews conducted by AZ Weekly Entertainment Magazine’s film columnists with talent speaking on behalf of movies recently released in theaters.

Writer/Director Stephen Chbosky (‘The Perks of Being a Wallflower’) By Stan Robinson “’The Perks of Being a Wallflower’ is a celebration of what it means to be a young person, and all of the great things about being a kid, if its your first kiss, your first crush, or that great dance, or the perfect drive you take with your friends. Every kid knows that experience, and every kid also knows the tough things that no one talks about, and this movie validates that. It hasn’t been a movie like this since I would say ‘Dead Poets Society’. Every time a movie tries to speak to this experience, and does it in an open way, it becomes invaluable to young people. “Each step of the process in each medium taught me a different aspect of the story. What I found was the

closer I got to the finished movie, the more autobiographical the experience became. You’ve been around it so you know that what you shoot often is not what ends up on the screen because you’re learning things about the material all the time. Luckily, I had a great team. I had very strong producers who had done some wonderful movies including ‘Juno’, I had a terrific editor who had done all that work for J.J. Abrams, and they helped to ‘keep me on the rails’ because it’s such a personal story to me. “You’ve seen this a thousand times, once you get on set and you see the chemistry of the five friends, you can’t write chemistry, you can only write the characters and cast it, and then you get all five of them together and realize, oh my God, the ease and the banter that they have and the scenes would take on a life of its own, and it happened all the time with the film. Every screening I’ve been to, the response has been overwhelming. I have not been to a single screening that didn’t end in enthusiastic applause. It speaks the very essence of young people.” – Stephen Chbosky

Writer/Director Michael J. Bassett (‘Solomon Kane’) By Joseph J. Airdo “I was a fantasy fan all of my teenage years. I grew up in the 80’s and 90’s and, in my opinion; fantasy was not really being served by film terribly well. It was a little bit light, it did not take itself terribly seriously and it was more of a children’s form than it was a way of telling dark, compelling stories. My sensibility is definitely toward the darker aspects of the world. “Solomon Kane exists – as Robert E.

September 27th, 2012 - October 3rd, 2012

Howard envisions him – in a world of darkness, a world of evil and a world of grim stoicism. He is a man who is staring down the barrel of a world he thinks is going to Hell and needs to be fixed. It just struck me that this was a character to whom I related enormously. “I set out to make a fantasy movie with a horror movie heart that aspires to be visually striking and beautiful in its own stark way. I know that it is not for everybody. Some people have said that it is relentlessly grim. But that is the movie I wanted to make. It reflects his world. It reflects the times of plague, suffering and political turmoil – which is the reality of the world in which the Kane character would have existed. “I wanted to make a fantasy movie in which there are demons, witches and warlocks but is also grounded in intense reality, which is something that I really have not seen in a fantasy movie before. Even now, I do not know if that is the kind of aesthetic, which many fantasy filmmakers and writers go for. But it is certainly where I come from.” – Michael J. Bassett

Movie News! WWE’s ‘Barricade’ premieres on DVD By Stan Robinson World Wrestling Entertainment released ‘Barricade’ direct to DVD on September 25, 2012 with an impressive, cool-sounding, and eyecatching cover using technology called the Augmented Reality experience, meant to bring the intensity of the film to life. ‘Barricade’, the first original production from WWE Films not featuring wrestling superstars, stars Eric McCormack, (‘Will and Grace’, TNT drama ‘Perception’) as Terrance Shade, who’s trying to balance his professional life as a psychiatrist and personal life as a widowed father. Also on September 25, ‘Barricade’ DVD’s were hidden throughout 25 cities across the US, including Phoenix, AZ with clues to the locations of the hidden DVDs being sent out via Twitter and Facebook on the BARRICADE Facebook and Twitter pages.

My Love Affair with Kim Crawford was when it was still new to me). I quite often take pictures of my food and wine pairings and post them to Facebook.

By Josh Moffitt, ArizonaLandBaron.com One of my favorite white wines is Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc. I find it refreshing and vibrant. It goes particularly well with sashimi and is generally my go-to wine for any seafood dish. Like most New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs, it has the signature aromas of freshly mown grass, lemongrass, green bell pepper, green melon, grapefruit, lime and herbal notes. The overwhelming flavor for me is grapefruit and maybe a little apple. Its crisp acidity cuts the fat in the raw salmon or tuna belly sashimi nicely, cleansing the palate of the soy sauce and wasabi. I like to serve it chilled, usually placing it in an ice bath, especially in the summer.

This time I posted the picture with the comment “I’ve been having an affair with Kim Crawford. I can only see her when Rhonni is out of town. We like to have sashimi together.” Almost immediately I get a comment on my post from the president of the Arizona Wine Growers Association “Hate to break it to you, Josh, but Kim Crawford is actually a Mr. Crawford. I agree his wine is wonderful!!! To which I replied – “Oh, Peggy! You’ve just ruined my evening! I was picturing a hot young blond Kiwi. I’m switching to red wine.” And then my wife commented from her mobile device – “That’s what you get cheater! Ha! Thanks for making me laugh, Peggy. ;)” The comments kept coming for a couple of days with people having a good laugh at my expense. So have a good laugh and a bottle of Kim Crawford next time you have sushi. The laughs are on me!

Alto Ristorante e Bar is proud to feature Winemaker Fabio Motta at our Center Stage Bar in the Hyatt Regency Scottsdale at Gainey Ranch

Alto Restaurant Hyatt Gainey Ranch Saturday September 28 6 PM to 8 PM Admission Free

We recently explored ways to taste wine like a pro. Now it’s time to put your skills into action and hit a wine tasting event. Most of your local wine shops and restaurants with great lists hold regular tastings, usually to showcase a line of wines. Right now, rosés are all the rage—both sparkly and regular, so you should easily find an event offering an array of rosés. Italian wines are ever-popular, after all, Italy is the largest wine-exporting country in the world and the U.S. is one of its top markets. Wine tastings sponsored by wine shops usually have the distributors on hand to pour and provide information about the wines. Even more special is when the winemaker or winery owner makes an appearance. Their objective really is to introduce you to the wines and increase their brand recognition. You don’t have to feel obligated to buy – this is your occasion to try things out, just like you might go swing a golf club at demo day in a sporting goods store. Once you’ve learned about a tasting event, just go, walk-in—be adventurous! You should aim to gain some knowledge while you are there. If there’s time, maybe gather some information before you go by taking a look at the winery’s website. Arming yourself with a little knowledge of the grape varietal, growing conditions for that particular year, and maybe some background tidbits about the winemaker will not only endear you to the person doing the pouring, but it will help you memorialize the wines for later reference. At the event approach the representative, ask (or display a little of your knowledge from your homework) about the wines they are pouring. You should expect a 1-2 ounce pour, which is standard at tastings. I always take notes and recommend that you do the same, usually on a tasting sheet they provide. Or if you’re into paperless ways, snap a photo of the label and well, you know the rest.

7131 WEST RAY ROAD SUITE 45 CHANDLER, AZ 85226

By all means, if you do latch onto a wine, I encourage you to make a purchase on the spot. The wine event sponsor might offer special pricing that day. Unlike that golf club at demo day, a bottle of wine isn’t as big a decision. You can also ask the distributor for a list of restaurants in your area where you might see this wine on the list. To me, it is very gratifying to open a restaurant wine list and send my eye straight to a wine I recently enjoyed at a wine-tasting event.

Sapporo Throws Pinkest Party Scottsdale has Ever Seen

  On September 12, Sapporo proudly opened its doors to breast cancer survivors, their families and friends with its first-ever Breast of Scottsdale, benefitting Arizona Institute for Breast Health (AIBH). Their event, which included half off all bottles of wine along with a pink theme, helped the organization obtain sponsors for its Pink Light District and was a kickoff event for Sapporo’s breast cancer awareness menu this fall.   “Over the summer, we came across

AIBH,” said MaryAnna Ford of Sapporo. “This organization, founded by Dr. Coral Quiet, has a singular focus – to offer women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer a second opinion on all of their treatment options.”    Among the pink menu items, which are available during October, were: ●● The Flirtini ●● The Pink Geisha ●● Hollywood Cocktail ●● Pink Panang Chicken Skewers ●● Pink-fin Ahi Tuna Poke ●● Sapporo Pink Rice Sushi Roll ●● Pink Velvet Cake Pops   Guests were asked to sponsor a $25 pink light with AIBH.   “From now through October 31st, Arizona and beyond has the opportunity to express its love, appreciation and gratitude for those impacted by breast cancer by sponsoring pink light bulbs,” said Christine Fenwick, breast cancer survivor and executive director of AIBH. These Pink Honor Lights will be illuminated the evening of October 4th on Marshall Way Bridge. All proceeds from this fundraiser will benefit AIBH, and the funds will go directly to support women who are dealing with a breast cancer diagnosis. Please visit www.ThePinkLightDistrict.org to sponsor lights today.   With the success of the half off bottles, Sapporo is pleased to announce it will continue to offer this deal each Wednesday through the end of 2012. Visit www.sapporoscottsdale.com and stop in during October for all of the pink items in honor of those touched by breast cancer.

CALENDAR OF EVENTS 9/27

By Jennifer Manly, ArizonaVinesAndWines.com

Being the new Assistant Publisher for Arizona Vines & Wines Magazine, one would think I would be a wine whiz, knowing all there is to know about it. Turns out though, I don’t! I’m actually new to wine. Don’t get me wrong I’ve had my fair share of glasses, but to actually know what I’m drinking, the type of wine, where it’s from, how it’s made, the terminology of it; that’s foreign to me! Taking on this new journey I have decided to really learn about wine! I have found some useful resources to help me deconstruct what a sommelier means, or terms used in tasting notes or even what my overly-wined friend talks about. Here are some examples: Body: “The weight of a wine in the mouth. It is generally related to the amount of alcohol it contains, the more alcohol, the fuller the body.” Brawny: “A hefty, muscular, fullbodied wine with plenty of weight and flavor.” Apparently Brawny isn’t just a brand for towels! Terroir: “The interaction of soil, climate, topography and grape variety in a specific site, imprinting the wine and making each wine from a specific

site distinct.” Flabby: “A wine that is too fat or obese and that is unbalanced due to insufficient acidity, lacking backbone.” Flabby wine? Well that’s one I wasn’t expecting! Corked: “Describes a wine having the off-putting, musty, moldy-newspaper flavor and aroma and dry aftertaste caused by a tainted cork.” Corks can cause problems for the wine too?! Who knew, I just thought they gave me problems with an opener sometimes! These are just a few of the terms that I have learned. There are still so many out there, but I plan to surprise myself and become a true Winespeaker in the future! https://www.erobertparker.com/info/ glossary.asp http://www.wineanswers.com/ glossary.aspx

Alaskan brings back seasonal favorite for the winter Winter is coming to Alaska, but Alaskan Brewing is undeterred, welcoming the cool and wet winter weather with the always-anticipated release of its seasonal Winter Ale. “This beer is one of our favorites in the brew house–especially as it gets colder here,” says Alaskan brewer Greg Morgan. “Sitka spruce trees carry a special significance to brewers, not just because we see them through every window of the brewery. In beer, the spruce tips add this really great, floral aroma that fills the brew house, and a

subtly-sweet flavor that you’d never expect.” Alaskan’s Winter Ale is brewed in the style of an English Old Ale–a traditionally malty, warming beer brewed in the fall and consumed through the winter. Alaskan’s take on this style is inspired by the seafaring adventurer Captain Cook, who discovered the pleasant flavor and scurvypreventing value of spruce tips during one of his 18th century voyages in search of a Northwest Passage.

a proud member of Alaskan’s growing seasonal releases since its launch in 2000. Fans of this great winter warmer will see this bold and complex brew in early October. Look for six packs and draft sales in select locations throughout Alaska and the other 13 states where Alaskan beers are sold. Another seasonal favorite, the Alaskan Spring Black IPA, will be released on January 1, 2013, just in time for the slowly lengthening days of early spring.

This ale balances the sweet, heady aroma of Sitka spruce tips with a clean, crisp noble hop finish and its malty richness complements the alcohol warmth.

MXSW (Mouth By Southwest)

Hello again friends, today I’d like to take a break from the usual reviews to tell you about another great source for information concerning the world of beer here in the East Valley. For anyone familiar with Facebook or Twitter, MXSW or Mouth By Southwest is a go to place for info on all the latest happenings. Founded in January of 2011 by former East Valley Tribune food critic Jess Harter, MXSW has become local Facebook users favorite place for up to date info on what’s hot and new and on who’s closing and why. Not on Facebook? Its ok, as Jess can also be found online at mouthbysouthwest. com. There is even a newsletter you can sign up for via the website that sends all the information directly to your inbox. The mantra of MXSW is “Dedication to being people’s best source of information about food and drink in the East Valley.” I would tend to agree as the posts are generally split about 50/50 between beer/ bars and food/restaurant related topics. Anyone who lives for the pairing of beer and food will certainly appreciate this kind of material. What makes MXSW relevant in these busy times is the way the material is conveyed. “Short SharpShock” is how I would describe it. To the point and always accurate with no filler, this is the news after all! No need to spend twenty to thirty minutes on a read, just a minute to scan the topics in question and you will have your next new destination for food, drink and the heart of the story. Good Stuff!

Check out where to enjoy and purchase these local brands on “Beer Spy” at www.worldclassbeer.com AZWeeklyMagazine.com

As always, keep sending those comments and questions to kingjamesswann@ gmail.com and Big Thanks John L. for the great idea on today’s subject matter. Until next week, cheers!

Firewater released their first album in four years last week. International Orange!, mixed by Tamir Muksat of Balkan Beat Box, carries on from where their previous collaboration, The Golden Hour, took off, slipping across new borders into uncharted territory. Created in Istanbul and Tel Aviv during the 2011 Arab Spring, their latest release captures the frenetic pulse of a world in the state of flux. The songs tap into grooves as disparate as Turkish maqsoum, Punjabi bhangra, Jamaican ska, Greek rebetiko, classic punk and old-school mambo. Firewater will be at the Crescent Ballroom (308 N. 2nd Ave) on Thursday September 27th. Visit www.crescentphx.com for more details.

Arizona’s Largest & Best Indoor Climbing Gym Since 1992

CRUSH!!!! TOP TEN HEAVY HITTERS IN NFL HISTORY #9 John Lynch

Experience the vertical world of climbing as never before. Indoors at the Phoenix Rock Gym. Explore our thirty foot high walls with over 15,000 sq. ft. of climbing surface. No experience is necessary. Even if you’ve never touched a rope in your life we will teach you the skills needed to climb safely.

This 6’ 2” 220 lb. hard-hitting DB out of Stanford University was selected in the third round of the 1993 draft by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and enjoyed a stellar 15 year career. As an integral member of the league’s number one ranked defense in 2002, he celebrated a victory with the Bucs against the Oakland Raiders in Super Bowl XXXVII. Playing with

reckless abandon all over the field, Lynch always seemed to make the highlight reel following each week’s game. Despite his aggressive style of play, Lynch was surprisingly durable, missing only but a few games during his career due to injury. Lynch was a nine-time Pro Bowl selection and earned all-pro honors on four occasions.
