EDITOR’S NOTE HOT (TWO) WHEELS Assuming you had time off for the Fourth of July holiday, welcome back. (If you didn’t, thanks for keeping things moving while everyone else was out). Hopefully, you spent your time doing something you enjoy. We here at Boise Weekly certainly did. On July 1, with the help of our friends Bikes 2 Boards, we brought back Bars & Stripes, our popular annual alleycat bike race/scavenger hunt. After several years of not holding the event and the extra-long holiday weekend, we weren’t sure how it would go—it exceeded our expectations. We had around 50 participants, some of whom were ardent competitors and some who just ambled through the course for fun. We met new people and saw some familiar faces. On behalf of all of us here at BW, we want to give a big thank you to Bikes 2 Boards for being our presenting sponsor and to our checkpoint hosts Amsterdam Lounge, BBQ4 Life, The Handlebar, The Lift, Neurolux, The Ram, Spacebar, Sud’s Tavern and The Tailgate, as well as our finish-line host and neighbor, Boise Brewing. We also want to thank all of the staff and friends of BW who volunteered their time manning posts, setting up and helping out in every way. Last but oh-so-not least, we want to thank all of the race participants. Your enthusiasm, energy and attitude were a big part of why 2017 Bars & Stripes was so much fun. And, now, for the winners. First place goes to Francisco Alvarez, who received a $1,000 certificate to Bikes 2 Boards; in second place was Brandon Whallon, who gets passes to the Huckleberry Jam music festival and a Cactus Pete’s Getaway Package; and in third place was Christian McKenna, who got to choose between Huckleberry Jam passses and the Cactus Pete’s package. Well done, you maniacs. We also want to thank Chris Scuglia and Patrick Sweeney, our OG alleycat organizers, for their expertise and assistance—extra thanks to Patrick for getting great photos, too. We’re already planning for Bars & Stripes 2018, which will likely happen on Saturday, July 7, so consider this your “save the (probably) date.” —Amy Atkins

Once again, I found myself discussing why I am so disgusted with any acquaintance who voted for this pestilence. It was essentially the same conversation I’ve been unable to avoid, periodically, after November 8. Were I to start every encounter with casual friends I haven’t seen since then with something to the effect of... I don’t want to know how you voted. If I find out you helped put that abomination in office, then our relationship is over. If you are comfortable with this, then fine ... feel free to tell me you voted for him and in turn, I will feel free to tell you I never want to be in your ignorant presence again. But that seems a little rude, even for me. So when I run into such a familiar face, all too often the conversation drifts beyond Hey! How’s tricks? Family good? All righty then, great to see you. Give me a call. Bye! ... and enters the forbidden zone. This time, it was with a neighbor who had been away for almost a year. Our exchange edged into the forbidden zone when he asked if I was still socializing with a common friend, and then wanted to know why not. I told him. Perhaps I shouldn’t have, but what else was I going to say? That we had a falling out over a drug deal? No, I was trapped into telling the truth. And by doing so, I trapped my neighbor into feeling like he had to admit he didn’t vote for Trump ... but with a condition: “I didn’t vote for him, but I couldn’t bring myself to vote for her, either.” I couldn’t bring myself to vote for her, either. How often have you heard this in the last eight months? ... I couldn’t bring myself to vote for her ... as though there is something in Hillary Clinton’s past, her present, her personality, her politics and philosophies and plans for America, that is so intolerable that this man—straining so nervously to convince me he acted out of conscience—just would not allow himself to sink so low as to cast his vote for ... for ... ugh! ... Her! I didn’t argue. Frankly, I just wanted the conversation over. Plus, at this point in American history, debating Hillary’s qualifications with people too dense to have recognized them long ago is a bit like quarreling with a toddler over whether flushing the washcloth down the toilet was a good idea or not. The damage is done, and all that’s left to do is to pay the price. But! ... Had I chosen to contest my neighbor’s implication that, somehow, Hillary is every bit as unpalatable as the serial sleaze we ended up with, I believe I might have begun by pointing out, as respectfully as my unmitigated scorn would allow, that ... You know, sir, she wasn’t asking to be chosen as your Mom—after which, I would have expected him to moan ... Aw, so you’re playing the female-ophobe card.
To which, I might have answered ... Well, neighbor, what else am I to think? After all, if you discount the absurd accusations coming from the vilest sewer sludge of the demented Right, that she was running a child sex slave ring ... that anyone who crossed her ended up dead ... that the Clinton Foundation is an enormous scam ... all the ridiculous charges that anyone with even one foot in reality immediately recognized as utter horseshit ... And! ... If you dare to acknowledge that, in terms of qualifications, comparing her to Sleazy is like discussing the difference between a master gardener and a common garden slug ... And! ... If you admit, as did the FBI, that the entire private server/email stink was a false alarm, and that the Benghazi scandal, as proven by endless investigation, was as insubstantial as Trey Gowdy’s brain ... then what else could it have been? It is next to inevitable he would have countered ... But she called his supporters “a basket of deplorables!”—to which I would have snapped ... And by now, thoughtful Americans understand how right she was. No sir, I submit that in Hillary, you saw every woman who ever rejected you because she was smart enough to realize how much smarter she was than you ... every woman you’ve ever resented for rising above you in the workplace based on her superior abilities ... every woman you considered “snooty,” “uppity,” “phony” because she excelled at what she did ... every woman you ever mocked because she didn’t meet your expectations of attractiveness ... every woman who ever offended you because she didn’t wear an apron around the house, pat you on the cheek and tell you what a good boy you are. That’s right, neighbor. That is exactly what I think ... that you couldn’t bring yourself to vote for Hillary not because you seriously believe she is crooked, but because she is neither seductive nor motherly. To wit, the only qualifications you have ever looked for in women. By this juncture, the quasi-civil conversation would likely have been over, replaced with shrieking, cursing and who knows what else. Sooner or later, though—I am absolutely convinced!—those childish minds who blamed (and continue to blame) Hillary Clinton for being Hillary Clinton must grow up and come to a more mature understanding of what a nation as sophisticated and complex as ours needs from a chief executive, or the U.S. will descend into the same tar pit of irrelevance, savagery, idiocy and eventual petrification that has become the graveyard of so many once-vibrant societies. If you don’t believe such a thing can happen, simply look at how far down that slope we have already slipped. And in a mere six months. BOISE WEEKLY.COM

LIFE’S A BEACH: EMPLOYMENT CHALLENGES AT IDAHO RESORTS
1ST THURSDAY AT THE M
OTSSON B O R N O V S U N MAG SPECTIVE”
: A RETRO
The Shore Lodge in McCall upgrades restaurants, guest rooms—and worker housing GEORGE PRENTICE Vacationing in paradise is one thing; cooking meals, washing dishes and scrubbing toilets there is another matter. The official population of McCall is a little over 3,000. That number nearly doubles in the summer months and during a holiday, such as the just-wrapped Fourth of July, thousands more flock to the resort town. It should be a boom time for area hotels, restaurants and taverns, but business owners say they are facing the nearly impossible task of hiring people. For proof, look no further than the help wanted section in the June 22 McCall StarNews, plastered with ads seeking housekeepers, receptionists, cooks, servers, sales representatives, landscapers, maintenance workers and even a water skiing spotter for Payette Lake. Even the Valley County Sheriff’s Office is suffering a severe staff shortage and is requiring deputies to take guard-duty shifts at the county jail. “Let me pull out my recent list of openings,” said Manager at IDL, McCall Office Jim Thackeray, “Wow, you name it, there’s an opening. An assistant store manager, a bakery clerk, a bus driver, bartenders, caregivers and a lot of cooks.” An obvious question might be: How much does a cook in McCall make? “These most recent help wanted ads don’t show me the rates they’re offering, but I’m going to say $14 an hour,” said Thackeray. “It’s an applicant’s market, for sure. Most employers aren’t going to take a warm body but it depends on how critical things are.” “Critical” may be the operative word at Si Bueno/Southside Grill restaurant in McCall. A recent help-wanted ad warned customers of the real possibility that “no minors would be allowed” if the business couldn’t find cooks. BOISE WEEKLY.COM
W IDAHO ST BOISE 500208.345.4320 .
“Food service would be limited to bar-only this summer, which means those under 21 will be missing out,” the ad read. “Prevent this from happening.” The problem with attracting a seasonal workforce is compounded—or possibly caused—by the cost of living in McCall and the shortage of affordable housing. “Most people would be able to find work here, but much of that depends on finding somewhere to live. McCall has made some positive movement on affordable housing,” said Thackeray, explaining how the Springs Apartment development has 29 units it rents at lower rates than the area rent/income ceiling. “They even added a second and third building there. Plus, there’s another development coming to the community of Donnelly.” Thackeray was referring to the recentlyannounced Northwest Passage Apartments, developed by the Boise-based nonprofit The Housing Company, which plans to offer 36 units with monthly rents ranging from $426 to $800 per month. The Housing Company, which also built the The Springs affordable housing development in McCall, says it plans to open the doors of the Northwest Passage Apartments this November. “But here’s the thing. If you filled all of those up with working people right now, we’d still have a big shortage,” said Thackeray. “Right now, there are probably a lot of people from the Treasure Valley or other states who would love to come work in McCall. They love it here. It’s beautiful, and it’s a wonderful environment to be in, but they simply can’t find a place to live.
Goodness knows the jobs are here and the place is beautiful, but these folks have a dickens of a time finding a place to live.”
RAISING THE BAR The management team at Shore Lodge are well versed on the employment versus housing dilemma. Shore Lodge development manager John Wood and recruiting specialist Vonna Torrey have actually crunched the numbers with Thackeray at his labor department office. “This might give you some perspective. What’s the number of unemployed people in Valley County right now?” asked Torrey. A quick check of the recent labor department report indicates approximately 244 people in the Valley County labor force were unemployed. “We figure that about 40 people are truly available in the job market. Are you kidding me? Forty people for every business in this town that currently needs employees?” Shore Lodge needs a lot more 40 people. “This summer, [we need] to hire about 350,” said Wood. That would make the Shore Lodge a major employer in the Treasure Valley, let alone Valley County. “Nobody hires that many people, let alone hiring them seasonally. That gives you an idea of the breadth of our challenge.” Part of meeting that challenge was hiring Torrey, who moved to McCall earlier this year after working for a pair of Treasure Valley staffing agencies for 25 years. “My official title at the Shore Lodge 8 is Talent Acquisition Manager,” said Torrey. “You see titles like that perhaps BOISEweekly | JULY 5–11, 2017 | 7
in California, not so much here, but what I do has everything about acquiring talent. Are we able to find 350 people? Yes, but with all the skill sets we need? That’s the more important question. We’re raising the bar at the Shore Lodge this year, so now, more than ever our hiring process is more about quality than quantity.” A big part of “raising the bar” includes some of the biggest changes to Shore Lodge in its history. Built along the sandy shores of Payette Lake, the lodge opened in 1948, with many of its guests coming from then-blossoming timber and mining industries in McCall. The lodge has hosted an untold number of weddings, graduations, proms, anniversaries and reunions. In 1990, Shore Lodge was purchased by California-based Torrey Enterprises Inc., which turned it into a private, membersonly facility. Then, in 2008, a new ownership group, which included the grandson of Idaho grocery legend Joe Albertson, reopened the lodge and its Whitetail Club golf course to the public. “Today, we have 77 rooms within the Shore Lodge,” said Wood. “That’s significantly fewer than our remodel about 15 years ago. The rooms are bigger. We have just upgraded our lakeside restaurant, which we have renamed The Cutwater. Still to come this year is the transformation of our tavern, The Bar, and the debut of the Narrows Steakhouse.” With those changes and additions, Wood says they will now focus on “Forbes standards,” a metric of service levels coined by Forbes Inc., including its five-star travel guide. “So, for instance, The Cove, here at Shore Lodge, has earned Idaho’s only four-star rating from Forbes,” said Torrey. “We want that fourstar service to become a part of everything we do, but finding housekeepers and anything in food and beverage service to meet the Forbes standard? That has to be our biggest challenge right now.”

The Ada County Highway District has opted not to convert 5th and 6th streets to two-way, for now.
TWO-WAY CONVERSION FOR 5TH AND 6TH STREETS: NO WAY After much public debate, Ada County Highway District commissioners have opted not to turn Fifth and Sixth streets in downtown Boise from one-way to two-way streets. The June 28 vote was 3-to-2 against the conversions, with only ACHD Commission President Paul Woods and Commissioner Jim Hansen voting yes. Hansen said he had hoped his fellow commissioners would pay greater attention to letters from Boise Police Chief Bill Bones and Boise Fire Chief Dennis Doan in support of the change. “Public safety ought to be the number one consideration,” said Hansen. In his letter to the ACHD commission, Doan said a two-way conversion on ﬁfth and sixth streets would “improve emergency vehicle access to businesses” and “eliminate the need for emergency vehicles to drive the wrong way on a one-way street.” The majority of the commission, however, sided with an ACHD staff recommendation to leave the streets the way the are based on public feedback via an online survey and open house in April, which revealed attendees and respondents were opposed to the change. Arguing in opposition to the public feedback, Hansen said, “I think we should be very cautious about making policy change based on non-scientiﬁc polls.”. Commission Vice President Rebecca Arnold pushed back against Hansen’s argument. “I think we make almost all of our decisions based on non-scientiﬁc polls,” she said. “We do the best we can based on the information we get from the public.” With that, Woods voted nay with commissioners Sara Baker and Kent Goldthorpe. Goldthorpe is looking forward to revisiting the issue. “I’m grateful that this vote isn’t a ‘now or never’ proposition,” he said. —George Prentice

off Idaho Highway 55 near the popular Lardo’s Grill and Saloon. Visitors to Shore Lodge may be familiar with the upgraded suites, tavern and lakeside dining, but few will ever set foot inside the newly remodeled dormitory on Lakeside Avenue, where rooms have been fashioned to accommodate employees and their families. “Between that dormitory, some of our other employee housing and even some properties in McCall that we have secured through property managers, we now have set aside about 108 beds,” said Wood. The real deal to a prospective employee is the cost. Monthly rents are a fraction of what the current market in McCall demands. “We subsidize that for the first six months of employment,” said Wood. “The cost for an employee starts at about $175 a month. We have a new employee who had just moved to Idaho from California. We met him at a job AN EMPLOYEE HOUSING UPGRADE fair, and he’s currently in employee housing At press time, Shore Lodge still has more with his family, something we never used to than 20 different job openings listed on its have.” website.

management at The Shore Lodge still understand that attracting the type of worker who will help them achieve Forbes standard is more an art than a science. “I can usually tell within a few minutes whether somebody’s going to be really successful in hospitality,’ said Wood. “I can sense people’s level of empathy or level of awareness. They may be shy or even clumsy, but I still know they could be a star with the right development. I’ve been in the business for a long time and I’ve been burned by people who were really good when they got their foot in the door but stopped taking care of customers.” As for the path to four-star success, Wood was quick to add it all depends on the employees. “You can’t buy those stars. It’s a constant evaluation process from Forbes ,and you’ll never know when you’re being evaluated,” he said. Julian Greaves is one of those people Wood singled out as a four-star hire. After serving as an executive chef at some the finest restaurants in of South Florida, Greaves spotted a help wanted ad for Shore Lodge. “Chef Julian was super successful in Florida but he told me, quite frankly, he and his wife were scared to let their little boys go out and play in their neighborhood,” said Wood. “When he came to McCall for a visit and interview, he fell in love with the place. And guess what? He and his family are in employee housing. He has since risen through the ranks, and he’s now our executive chef.” Both Shore Lodge and Chef Julian still need help, though. The job listings this week included openings for chefs, servers, banquet captains and restaurant and bar managers. Ever thought about spending the summer in McCall? BOISE WEEKLY.COM

Darlin’, only the good die young.
BRUCE MAUREY, THE 27 CLUB Pop art icon Warhol died in 1987 after a routine gallbladder surgery, but had his ﬁrst brush with death after being shot in 1968. About the incident, Warhol reportedly said, “People sometimes say that the way things happen in movies is unreal, but actually it’s the way things happen in life that’s unreal.” Quick: Flip to the cover of this issue of Boise Weekly. Now ﬂip back. The glam portrait of Warhol is the work of local artist Bruce Maurey. It’s not the ﬁrst time his work has graced the front page of this paper, and it’s not the only portrait he has done of a beloved artist who left us too soon. Maurey’s new exhibit, The 27 Club, “celebrates dead artists,” many of whom died the age of 27 or shortly thereafter. Each painting has an augmented reality element, viewable with a smart phone and the Aurasma app (instructions at facebook.com/evermoreprintsboise). Stop by the opening reception for The 27 Club, 5-9 p.m., with light refreshments by The Mode Lounge.

ART BY JULIA GREEN When people in the City of Trees feel like having breakfast for dinner on a Saturday night but don’t want to go through the hassle of preparing it, they don’t have to settle for a substitute. They can go to Goldy’s Corner for late-night blueberry pancakes and coffee. The Corner is also great for after-hours checkers and where Cheersstyle familiarity is the “Norm.” Outside of a gallery or museum, it’s also a primo spot to see work by local artist Julia Green. Green, a Boise native, is a member of Swell Arts Collective, lead designer for Hella Cool Kids and artist for Beardface Supply Co. Green’s style is at once familiar and unique, combining the sensibilities of Adventure Time, Hanna-Barbera and mid-century American national park propaganda. Her work has been displayed and sold at Flying M Coffee, the Visual Arts Collective and a number of other locations where you would expect to see dynamic, illustrative art—you can even ﬁnd mugs, cell phone cases, throw pillows and shower curtains with Green’s designs (society6.com). Check out her work at Goldy’s on First Thursday, 5-9 p.m.

POWDERHAUS BREWING AND SPOONTHUMB ICE CREAM Hear us out: Beer ﬂoats aren’t bad. The right combinations of cream and suds can add up to something even better than the milk-and-ice-cream standard. There are a few ways to do this, according to Food & Wine magazine, that revolve around matching the strengths of ingredients and fostering contrasts. Stouts and porters go well with chocolate and vanilla ice creams, but Hefeweizens and Pilsners jam with fruity, citrusy ice creams. Try out some kitchen science at Mixed Greens this First Thursday, when it hosts Powderhaus Brewing and ice cream from Spoonthumb. While the ofﬁcial event description says nothing about beer ﬂoats, the temptation to combine the tasters of brew and ice cream on a hot July Thursday will no doubt be unsuppressable. While stirring a single-serving cup of beer ﬂoat, don’t forget to check out the selection of accessories, bath and body kit, and knickknacks.

DEATH RATTLE THE SPILL: GREAT EXPECTATIONS
TREASURE VALLEY COMIC CON
LEGO AMERICANA ROADSHOW
Death Rattle Writers Festival is on a mission to help anyone who wants to slip into their literary groove. It starts with The Spill, a series of live story events at which writers and non-writers alike are encouraged to spill their guts by sharing a ﬁve-minute snapshot of their lives. DRWF hopes to “foster a community that leaves no one outside, afraid or alone.” The catch is, each story must ﬁt the poem-inspired theme of the evening. For July 6, its “Pocket Knife” by Brandon Ferguson and participants are encouraged to share “stories of great expectations, of high hopes, of best-case-scenarios, whether they are expectations of you or your expectations of others.” Read Ferguson’s poem on the facebook.com/Spillyourstory event page to prepare, and then get ready to spill at Flying M Coffee Garage in Nampa for a moment in the spotlight. 8 p.m., $3. Flying M Coffeegarage, 1314 Second St. S., 208467-5533, ﬂyingmcoffee.com.

Imagination is the essence of discovery, and at the Boise Towne Square Mall, Boise children will get a chance to discover historic American landmarks with one of the most imaginaive toys out there: Legos. The Lego Americana Roadshow exhibit Building Across America is in its third year of touring the country and features 10 large-scale models of prominent national landmarks like the Washington Monument, Lincoln Memorial, U.S. Capitol, White House and Statue of Liberty. The material used to build them may be Legos, but these modelers aren’t kidding around: the Capitol Building is 25 feet 7 inches long and took eight builders 1,700 hours to create. Kid-friendly activities keep the excitement going throughout the month, including a Brick Play Area, build-your-own Independence Hall workshop (July 15-16) and scavenger hunt. July 8 and 23, 10 a.m.-9 p.m., FREE. Boise Towne Square, 350 N Milwaukee St., 208-378-4400, lego.com/americana-roadshow.

CULTURE/EXTRA BIANCA DEL RIO ON SMALL TOWNS AND SUCCESS
JOVANNI JIMENE Z PEDR A Z A
Now in its ninth season, reality TV show RuPaul’s Drag Race has opened doors for the more than 100 contestants who have sewn-up, made-up, tucked-up and acted-up in a quest to become “America’s next drag superstar.” Maybe more importantly, though, the show pulled back a curtain on drag culture, allowing audiences who may never have otherwise see, that under the layers of gorgeous hair and clothing—and, in the case of Bianca Del Rio (aka Roy Haylock), eyelashes—they are people and they are talented performers. Like all the queens who have shante-d and sashayed across the Drag Race stage, though, Del Rio is anything but simple. When the 42-year-old won Season Six in 2014, she was a renowned costume designer and performer, known for her caustic comedy. After winning, though, her career went into overdrive. “For the past year, I’ve been traveling with my solo show,” Del Rio said, calling from Miami in late May. “I’m wrapping that up and then doing another tour with a group of gals from Drag Race. Then I start my new tour, which will take me through the new year.” It will also bring her and her Not Today, Satan: A Drag Comedy Experience show to the Egyptian Theatre on Friday, July 7. It will be the ﬁrst time she has performed in Boise, as well as other smaller markets, something she leaves up to her managers and “the market data and analysis.” Del Rio only cares about one thing. “It’s always a business decision, so I never know where I’m going to be … I’m kind of clueless,” Del Rio said. “I just need people there. That’s all I need. They don’t even need to be alive,” she said, laughing. “Put a bunch of dead people in the back of the room if you want. I’m just ready to get out there.” For a drag queen—especially one who is an absolute BIANCA DEL RIO master of insult comedy—small-town America may not FRIDAY, JULY 7, 8 P.M., $25-$35. EGYPTIAN THEATRE, always be the most welcoming. Asked if she has any ap700 W. MAIN ST., EGYPTIANTHEATRE. prehension about performing in unfamiliar locales, Del Rio’s NET, BROWNPAPERTICKETS.COM. answer was an immediate “No.” “Oh, God no,” she added emphatically. “I think those are usually the best towns because they’re hungry to see you. I lived in New York for years, so when I go there, they’re like, ‘Oh. She’s back again.’ It’s not very exciting to them. That’s been the magic of actually getting to see the world. The most obscure places are the places I love.” Del Rio thanks Drag Race for the opportunities she has been afforded since winning, but her incredible talent is what keeps doors opening—along with her work ethic. Along with the endless touring, the sequel to her 2016 ﬁlm, Hurricane Bianca, is already written and ﬁlming is planned for later this year. For Del Rio, there is no end in sight. “The biggest trick [to being successful] is to never think you’re successful,” she said. “For me, the sign of success is you’re still working. You have to work at it each time you’re out there and for me, that’s the best part. As far as sitting back and enjoying it? No. I don’t think of things in that way. I think that has done too much damage to too many people. I mean, look at Mariah Carey!” —Amy Atkins

NOISE WHAT DOESN’T KILL YOU La Luz surf misfortune, carve out sway in L.A. CHRIS PARKER
STARTS FRIDAY, JULY 7th

Boise will always be important to the members of La Luz, because it was almost the site of the last show the harmony-laden, surf-noir, all-female quartet would ever play. Heading home to Seattle after a show at El Korah Shrine in Nov. 2013, the van the band was in hit a patch of black ice and crashed into a concrete barrier. While Shana Cleveland, Marian Li Pino, Alice Sandahl and Abbey Blackwell waited for AAA, a semi-truck rear-ended the van, totaling it and all the instruments inside. The women walked away okay, though they had to cancel the remaining dates of their tour with Of Montreal. The whole experience made the band tighter. “It’s funny how that happens,” says singer/ guitarist Shana Cleveland. “It really does take traumatic events to kind of remind you what your values are and what your goals are and how you want to go through life. I think sometimes you can’t see the light unless you’re in the dark.” Things have brightened considerably for La Luz since then. For its second album, Weirdo Shrine (Hardly Art, 2015), the band added richer tone and more stylistic elements to its surf-based sound, earning it a raft of positive reviews. The band has also made several palate-cleansing returns to Boise. “It’s made me like Boise more in some ways, because we had this horrible experience and the next time we went back, we played at the same venue we played the night before we got in the accident. It felt really cathartic,” Cleveland says. “The audience was awesome, so it sort of left me with a special place in my heart for Boise.” For Cleveland, music and touring have long been intricately connected. Her parents were musicians and her path was going to run parallel to theirs for as long as she can remember. “My parents tell so many stories about traveling in a pickup truck and sleeping in the back, living off a jar of peanut butter and stuff like that,” she says. “To me, it all sounded very romantic.” Cleveland and drummer Li Pino played together in the band The Curious Mystery before forming La Luz with keyboardist Sandahl and former bassist Blackwell—current bassist Lena Simon replaced Blackwell three months after the accident. Stylistically, the La Luz is informed by

NOISE HONKY TONK MEN Local band Tylor and the Train Robbers release wily, wise debut Gravel BEN SCHULTZ One highlight of Tylor and the Train Robbers’ debut album Gravel (self-released, May 18) is the song “What Keeps You Up,” which tells the story of a musician who hits the road, leaving his wife and child behind. Band frontman Tylor Ketchum doesn’t have any kids, but he did find inspiration for the song in his own life. “It was kind of just a song I wrote when I first moved to Boise,” Ketchum explained. “I was going through this thing—I had this new girlfriend, and I was trying to get all these gigs. I was going to open mics and trying to get in front of people that would be able to play with me or get me a gig somewhere else.” Eventually, Ketchum saw his ambitions as a musician were conflicting with his relationship. “I wrote that song [thinking], ‘What could happen in the future, and do I want to take this relationship all the way seriously and totally throw out my music?’ Because it was almost one way or the other, it seemed to me at the time.” The relationship didn’t work out, but Ketchum’s career is going strong. Since forming in 2014, Tylor and the Train Robbers have performed with Micky and the Motorcars, Ray Wylie Hubbard and Dale Watson. Gravel combines thoughtful, well-schooled songcraft with confident musicianship. “What Keeps You Up” showcases Ketchum’s strengths as a songwriter. Neither the musician nor the mother come off as blameworthy. Instead, Ketchum suggests they’d have both been better off if they’d parted ways before compromising their dreams. It’s surprisingly mature insight for a musician in his mid-20s. The sophistication of Ketchum’s writing impresses his bandmates, too. “In a lot of Tylor’s songs, they are [in] that conversational first-person,” said guitarist Johnny Pisano (aka Johnny Shoes). “It seems like he’s writing about his experience … but that song almost seems like a story about other characters.” Ketchum’s family history—which he alludes to in “Mom’s Old Fender”—could help explain his quick development as a musician. BOISE WEEKLY.COM
Tylor Ketchum (left) and the Train Robbers may have to hit the road hard with Gravel
“My mom played music,” Ketchum said. “That was her dream, to do that, as she was growing up. She had me when she was 21, so, pretty young and, you know, life happens, I guess. She kind of had to give up on that dream, but she’s behind me even more because of that and wants me to live her dream for her.” In addition to his mother, Ketchum has uncles and cousins who played in bar bands around his hometown of Helix, Ore. His grandfather provided another key inspiration. “He could never play for some reason—he just never had it—but he was always making sure I listened to the right stuff. ...Back then, they had a big record collection: Hank Snow, Hank Williams, Johnny Cash and Merle Haggard.” Ketchum formed the Bushman Brothers Band with his brothers Jason and Tommy Bushman and played shows in Helix, Pendleton and other nearby towns. Eventually, Ketchum’s ambitions grew beyond his small town. “I met a girl that lived there in Boise, and I went to visit. Ketchum told the East Oregonian. “There was a lot of cool music there ... especially coming from Pendleton.” It took a while for Ketchum to recruit the Train Robbers’ current lineup, which is Pisano on lead guitar, Jason Bushman on bass and Flip Perkins on drums. Personnel changes kept
the band from finishing Gravel for two years, and some fans and family members started to doubt that it would come out at all. “You start feeling like the band who cried wolf,” Pisano said. “You know: ‘Well, it’s comin.’ ‘Yeah, well, you said that six months ago.’” The band benefited from those two years, though. “I think we definitely benefitted from playing together as much as we did over [that] time,” Pisano said. “And the album kind of developed along with all the time we were putting in.” Audiences will have plenty of chances to hear the result of all that work. Tylor and the Train Robber have shows booked from July to October, including an opening slot for the Marshall Tucker Band at the Canyon County Fair on Thursday, July 27. Outside of playing live, Ketchum wants to grow more as a songwriter. “I was recently doing an interview,” he said. “They were talking about a certain point in a musician’s life… where you’ve released all your inside demons, and you’re like, ‘What do I write about now?’ That’s when a lot of musicians go to writing about political things or things that are going on in the world. I’m starting to hit that a little bit, I think.”

COURTESY STE WART GALLERY
ARTS & CULTURE
The works in Self Taught, at Stewart Gallery through August, explore a range of expressions as varied as the artists who created them.
EXPERIENCE NECESSARY, (ART) DEGREE NOT REQUIRED Stewart Gallery shines a spotlight on Self Taught artists LE X NEL SON What do a doctor from Vermont, a trained photo next to paper dolls (Powell); or foraged scraps of lab technician from Oregon and an Arizona-born metal, cloth and wood painted with dyed beeswax (Calkins), for example.

a whole history for these types of people and this type of work that we’re not really aware of,” Wilde said. Although Wilde has found success as a selftaught artist, she still sees art school as a good option, worried only that it may stifle the strong sense of identity that is often the hallmark of selftaught work. “The only downfall [of attending art school] is if you become the product of your professor; when you’re young and longing for acknowledgement, so you start doing what you’re told,” Wilde said. “Just hold steady, because you’ll come out on the other end.” Apart from being works by self-taught artists, a tightly held individuality is one of the few things the pieces on display at Stewart Gallery have in common—they run the gamut from crudely constructed wooden animals to delicately refined etchings. While some pieces are staid and monochromatic, others are suffused with circus-clown shades. The odd dichotomy isn’t an issue for Wilde. “This gallery has never been motivated by the market,” she said, gesturing around at the spare, white-walled space dotted with the mismatched sculptures and sketches. “It’s our responsibility to bring work here that we’d love to share but is also important for the community to see. It might not be for everyone, but it’s important for people to see it.” BOISE WEEKLY.COM
CITIZEN COREY MACH AND KERI RENE FULLER Quasimodo and Esmerelda on ISF musical, The Hunchback of Notre Dame GEORGE PRENTICE
Since The Hunchback of Notre Dame was published in 1831, it has been adapted into more than a dozen films, six plays, five ballets and five television dramas. One of the most popular is the 1996 animated musical from the Walt Disney company, which itself was adapted for the stage in 1999 for audiences in Berlin, Germany and titled Der Glockner von Notre Dame. Few American audiences have it—the live musical has only been staged in five U.S. cities. Starting Friday, June 29, however, it was six, when the Idaho Shakespeare Festival rang the bells of The Hunchback of Notre Dame, which features songs from the Disney film plus new tunes by Oscar winning composers Alan Menken and Stephen Schwartz, and stars Corey Mach as Quasimodo and Keri Rene Fuller as Esmerelda. We spoke with the stars just before opening night.
Mach: That’s not to say kids won’t definitely enjoy this show, but there is some serious stuff happening. Fuller: Absolutely. No spoilers, but the stage musical doesn’t end the way the Disney film does. I really admire that, but this production is a lot more faithful to the novel. There is a deep, deep human connection in this show.
With familiar songs from the Disney ﬁlm and the occasional singing gargoyle, families should have a grand old time, but The Hunchback of Notre Dame has some very serious themes. For instance, many of the characters audiences relate to would most probably be homeless in today’s society. Most importantly, this show reminds us how often we exclude those who don’t look or act like us. Mach: When you think of Disney movies, you think of princes and princesses. Fuller: And happily ever after.
Can I assume wearing the prosthetic has widened the lens you look through for your performance? Mach: Quasimodo knew only one person in his life until the day he convinced himself to step outside the cathedral, but he picked the wrong day to do that. It was the Festival of Fools, when one person in Paris is picked to have the ugliest face.
Corey, let’s talk about wardrobe, speciﬁcally the prosthetic used to give you a hunchback. Mach: There is evidence of a real-life Quasimodo who worked in Notre Dame. Plus, we looked at a good many of historic photos of people with hunchbacks. Our amazing costume department went into great depth to create something authentic.
Esmeralda sees something diﬀerent in Quasimodo. Fuller: She’s a gypsy; she has wandered her
entire life. She yearns for a human connection, so she feels a deep need to be loyal to Quasimodo. I think, even today, that’s such a powerful message: seeing humans as they are and not as how they appear. You’re just a few days away from opening night. Are you jittery or anxious? Mach: Not at all. I’m thinking, “Let me at this.” This show is so good. I really had no idea of the magnitude of the show. This is the biggest set we’ve ever seen at the festival. Fuller: And the biggest orchestra; and this cast… Wow. It’s my understanding your production will use three separate choruses of local performers. Fuller: That’s right. They’ll switch off performances. Each is a chorus of 16 singers. This show is even bigger than our production of Les Miserables. It’s the biggest cast we’ve ever had. Corey, how physical is this show for you? Mach: The most I’ve ever experienced. Are you swinging a good deal? Mach: Swinging from the ropes? Oh, yeah. There’s the ringing of the bells and a lot of stairs in the cathedral.
Talk to me about folding your physical frame into this character. Mach: I’m 6’ 1”. I think I’m the tallest in the cast. Quasimodo is described in the book as tall as he is wide, which means he was extremely short and kind of pudgy. That doesn’t matter much until you realize you can’t have a hunchback who’s just a tiny bit hunched over and taller than everyone else. I’m in physical therapy twice a week just so I can ... contort my body in a way that is believable. The novel was huge source from which I could grab detail. The majority of my work has been performing in musicals based on movies. And I never, ever watch the movie. I just don’t want any of that to influence what I’m doing on stage, but in the case of The Hunchback of Notre Dame, well, this was a major exception. The ultimate question posed by this story is: What makes a monster? Mach: … And, what makes a man? That’s the big question. That’s a pretty good question in 2017. Fuller: I’ve been thinking about that a lot every time I sing that question. My answer for now is: Spirit. Mach: I think it’s happiness. That’s in short supply right now. Fuller: It really is.

WINESIPPER SUMMER REDS
2015 J. LOHR WILDFLOWER MONTEREY VALDIGUIE, $8.99 Valdiguie (once called Napa Gamay, mistakenly believing it was the Gamay grape of Beaujolais) actually originated in the Languedoc region of France, but with its soft aromas of berry and cherry, it does have a lot in common with Beaujolais. Medium bodied and fruit forward, it has strawberry-rhubarb ﬂavors backed by light chocolate, with soft acidity on the clean ﬁnish. This red is great for barbecues. 2016 POST FLIRTATION RED, $16.99 Crafted by talented natural winemaker Martha Stoumen, this lovely California red is a blend of 65 percent carignan/35 percent zinfandel. The intense aromas spotlight creamy berry and spicy cherry fruit. The ﬂavors are silky smooth, offering sweet rhubarb and raspberry, with soft ripe tannins that add a little grip to the ﬁnish. It’s remarkably delicious. 2015 VIGNOBLES BULLIAT BEAUJOLAIS VILLAGES, $13.99 Made with handharvested, organically grown grapes, this French entry opens with bright cranberry, cocoa and Maraschino cherry aromas. It’s a well-structured, nicely integrated wine with racy acidity balancing the ripe red fruit ﬂavors. Light and lively on the palate, the velvety ﬁnish of this perfect summer red lingers on and on. —David Kirkpatrick 26 | JULY 5–11, 2017 | BOISEweekly
KE L S E Y HAWES
In the heat of summer, many wine lovers turn to crisp refreshing whites like sauvignon blanc and riesling, or charming equally refreshing roses; but when you’re pulling a juicy burger or ribeye off the grill, you need a red. A good summer red has soft tannins so it can be served slightly chilled and is fresh, fruit forward and low in alcohol—all three here are around 12 percent). With all of that in mind, here are the panel’s summer-red picks:
Paddles Up Poke is the confluence of chill river vibe and delicious fresh fish TOM BOWERS AND KENNY K ATAYAMA Fish-lovers, rejoice! A new poke (POH-kay) restaurant opened in the heart of downtown Boise. Located on Ninth Street across from Freak Alley; Paddles Up Poke opened its doors on May 1 and has been going strong since. Co-owners Jordan Tapangco and Daniel Landucci got to know each other after moving to Boise—Tapangco hails from Alaska, while Landucci came from California. Both were passionate about starting a bed of potato chips. The staff was patient with our business and felt a poke place was the right idea questions as we stumbled through the menu and for this growing, youthful urban area. If you’re unfamiliar with poke, it’s traditionally there was almost no wait for our food. The interior of Paddles Up is clean and conraw cubes of marinated, seasoned fish (usually temporary, with a handful of raft-related prints tuna), often tossed with vegetables and sauces.

not as yielding as a tortilla—you might want to keep the paper wrapper on while you dig in. The potato chips at the bottom of the bowl were takeit-or-leave-it but if you like kettle cooked chips, you might enjoy the flavor profile. We really liked Paddles Up Poke. The food was filling and everything costs either $10.99 or $12.99; a hard bargain to beat for fresh raw fish. We recommend it for anyone who loves sushi, especially if you’re picky. The make-your-own menu is a godsend. For those already familiar with Paddles Up, be on the look-out for new specials, as we heard Landucci and Tapangco are planning to reel in unique and big-flavor regional fish options in the near future. Known on Yelp and Tumblr as PizzaTom and PizzaKen, Tom Bowers and Kenny Katayama have diversified—but they still love pizza.
FOOD/NEWS SNOWOCALYPSE 2017, MATADOR AND THE FUNKY TACO The deep freeze of 2017 iced over downtown Boise, frosting over relations between the city and the Ada County Highway District, and snowing in local businesses, which howled when the city and ACHD quarreled over whose responsibility it was to clear some sidewalks. Half a year later, as temperatures near 100, the long-past frigid weather is still casting drifts. Just ask Matador manager Brian Livesay. “Snowpocalypse 2017 was no joke,” Livesay said. As snowpack on the roof of the Eighth Street restaurant began to melt, water seeped through the ceiling, soaking through the walls, damaging the ﬂoors and forcing minor electrical repairs. The damage was so severe, Matador closed June 24-June 30 to ﬁx wainscotting and completely replace the ﬂoors. A few doors up on Eighth Street, The Funky Taco is preparing to build its ﬁrst brick-and-mortar location at what will soon be the former location of Mongolian Grill & Bar. Mongolian Grill will leave its longtime location Saturday, July 22, according to a sign posted out front.
TFT will take over the spot Tuesday, Aug. 1, and will begin the three- to four-month process of renovating the interior, installing an indoor charcoal grill and working with Treefort Music Fest Director Eric Gilbert to help it double as a music venue. TFT will have a sit-down setup, but also a service window for tacos on the ﬂy. According to owner Justin Archambo, it will feature a 60/40 mix of omnivorous/vegetarian tacos, beer and wine and local non-alcoholic beverages. He is currently working on obtaining a liquor license and hopes to have a full bar on site. Archambo has a request for proposals out about a possible mural for the side of the restaurant, which could open as early as Wednesday, Dec. 1. “It’s a very visible corner and we want it to be funky and eclectic,” Archambo said, who added he has no plans to give up The Funky Taco mobile stand, which will continue to appear at the Boise Farmers Market on Saturdays. —Harrison Berry BOISE WEEKLY.COM

PAGE BREAK $GYLFHIRUWKRVH RQWKHYHUJH CAN YOU HEAR THE DRUMS, BIANANDO? DEAR MINERVA, As a little girl, I always wanted to be the iconic Mexican mariachi singer, Vicente Fernandez. I was raised Catholic in an Italian/Mexican home. We are very Latino, and most of my family sees anything LGBTQ as sinful. I would secretly dress up like my dad, putting on his cowboy hat, soccer shirt and snakeskin boots. When I met the love of my life, I opened up to him about how I’ve always had this alter ego named Bianando. He loved it and even encouraged me to embrace the character and his bravery. Bianando is suave and has a mustache (think Gomez Addams). I’ve always loved my community and have met amazing people, but I have never actually taken on the persona of Bianando. There are so many amazing drag performers here in Idaho, but I’m too intimidated to ask for advice. I’m scared of being laughed at, judged or being called a fake. Identifying as pansexual, I already get plenty of that. I just want to be me and to perform and be him when the mood strikes. I don’t know what to do. I’m scared. Sincerely, Bianando
VEGY VIDA When we think about what to take to a potluck, a veggie platter often comes to mind. The store-bought versions are usually laden with produce, which means the too-small cup of ranch dressing/dip nestled in the center is gone before the veggies are—if the dip isn’t too bland to even bother with. Next time it’s your turn to bring veggies, pick up a bottle or two of Vegy Vida Kids’ Dip ’n More. It’s a new product designed to get youngsters to eat their greens (and oranges, and yellows, and purples), but is a rock ’n roll for adults, too. Made with greek yogurt and a cucumber extract, $3.59, vegyvida.com Vegy Vida “softens veggie ﬂavor, so Available at Albertsons kids learn to acquire a taste for them.” Safeway stores in Idaho That’s all well and good, but Vegy Vida is sans sugar, nuts, gluten and preservatives, and it’s delicious. It comes in ﬁve ﬂavors—Cheesy Cheddar, Cool Buffalo, Creamy Ranch, Savory Bacon and Zesty Southwest— “kids adults love.” Vegy Vida is meant to help kids to eat healthier, but if there are any anti-veg adults in your house, you might think about keeping a few bottles in stock for them, too. —BW Staff

B OISE W E E KLY
FREE WILL ASTROLOGY BY ROB BREZSNY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Unless you were raised by a pack of feral raccoons or a fundamentalist cult, now is a perfect time to dive in to your second childhood. Is there a toy you wanted as a kid but never got? Buy it for yourself now! What were the delicious foods you craved back then? Eat them! Where were the special places you loved? Go there, or to spots that remind you of them. Who were the people you were excited to be with? Talk with them. Actions like these will get you geared up for a full-scale immersion in innocent eagerness, and that would be just the right medicine for your soul.
makes the undertaking even more incongruous. By the climax of the tale, Horton has had to persist in his loyal service through a number of challenges. All ends well, and there’s an added bonus: The creature that’s born is miraculously part-bird, part-elephant. I see similarities between this story and your life right now, Gemini. The duty you’re carrying out doesn’t come naturally, and you’re not even sure you’re doing it right, but if you keep at it until it’s completed, you’ll earn a surprising reward.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): What I wish for you, Taurus, is toasted ice cream and secrets in plain sight and a sacred twist of humorous purity. I would love for you to experience a powerful surrender and a calm climax and a sweeping vision of a small but pithy clue. I very much hope you will get to take a big trip to an intimate turning point that’s not too far away. I pray you will find or create a barrier that draws people together instead of keeping them apart.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): It’s prime time for you to break through any inhibitions you might have about accessing and expressing your passion. To help you in this righteous cause, I’ve assembled a batch of words you should be ready to use with frequency and sweet abandon. Consider writing at least part of this list on your forearm with a felt-tip pen every morning so it’s always close at hand: enamored, piqued, enchanted, stirred, roused, enthused, delighted, animated, elevated, thrilled, captivated, turned-on, enthralled, exuberant, fired up, awakened.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): In Dr. Seuss’s book, *Horton Hatches an Egg,* an elephant assumes the duty of sitting on a bird’s egg, committed to keeping it warm until hatching time. The nest is located high in a tree, which
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Matt Groening, creator of the animated series *The Simpsons,* says a great turning point in his early years came when his Scoutmaster told him he was the worst Boy Scout in history. While
this might have demoralized other teenagers, it energized Groening. “Well, somebody’s got to be the worst,” he triumphantly told the Scoutmaster. Then, “instead of the earth opening up and swallowing me, instead of the flames of hellfire licking at my knees—nothing happened, and I was free.” I suspect you may soon be blessed with a comparable liberation, Leo. Maybe you’ll be released from having to live up to an expectation you shouldn’t even live up to. Or maybe you’ll be criticized in a way that will motivate your drive for excellence for years to come. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Nineteen of my readers who work in the advertising industry signed a petition requesting I stop badmouthing their field. “Without advertising,” they testified, “life itself would be impossible.” In response, I agreed to attend their re-education seminar. There, under their tutelage, I came to acknowledge that everything we do can be construed as a kind of advertising. Each of us is engaged in a mostly unconscious campaign to promote our unique way of looking at and being in the world. Realizing the truth, I now feel no reservations about urging you Virgos to take advantage of the current astrological omens. They suggest you can and should be aggressive and ingenious about marketing yourself, your ideas, and your products.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): In 2003, the American Film Institute announced the creation of a new prize to honor acting talent. Dubbed the Charlton Heston Award, it was designed to be handed out periodically to luminaries who have distinguished themselves over the course of long careers. The first recipient of the award was, oddly enough, Charlton Heston himself, born under the sign of Libra. I hope you’re inspired by this story to wipe away any false modesty you might be suffering from. The astrological omens suggest it’s a favorable moment to create a big new award named after you and bestow it upon yourself. As part of the festivities, tell yourself about what makes you special, amazing, and valuable. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Here’s your riddle: What unscratchable itch drives you half-crazy, but you’re secretly glad it drives you half-crazy, because you know your half-craziness will eventually lead you to an experience or resource that will relieve the itch? Here’s your prophecy: Sometime soon, scratching the unscratchable itch will lead you to the experience or resource that will finally relieve the itch. Here’s your homework: Prepare yourself emotionally to fully receive and welcome the new experience or resource. Make sure you’re not so addicted to scratching the unscratchable itch that you
fail to take advantage of the healing it’s bringing you.
Don’t expect them to act like or live up to the very real fantasy you’re communing with.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): The best way to go forward is to go backward; the path to the bright future requires a shadowy regression. Put another way, you should return to the roots of a triumph in order to find a hidden flaw that might eventually threaten to undo your success. Correct that flaw now and you’ll make it unnecessary for karmic repercussions to undermine you later. Please don’t get all solemn-faced and anxious about this assignment. Approach it with humorous self-correction and you’ll ensure that all goes well. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Are you familiar with the psychological concepts of anima and animus? You’re in the midst of being intoxicated by one of those creatures from inner space. Though you may not be fully conscious of it, you women are experiencing a mystical marriage with an imaginal character that personifies all that’s masculine in your psyche. You men are going through the analogous process with a female figure within you. I believe this is true no matter what your sexual orientation is. While this awesome psychological event may be fun, educational and even ecstatic, it could also be confusing to your relationships with real people.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): As a recovering save-the-world addict, I have felt compassionate skepticism towards my fellow junkies who are still in the throes of their obsession. But recently I’ve discovered that just as a small minority of alcoholics can safely take a drink now and then, so can a few save-the-world-aholics actually save the world a little bit at a time without getting strungout. With that as a disclaimer, Aquarius, I’m letting you know that the cosmos has authorized you to pursue your own brand of fanatical idealism in the coming weeks. To keep yourself honest, make fun of your zealotry every now and then. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): The potential breakthrough I foresee for you is a rare species of joy. It’s a gritty, hard-earned pleasure that will spawn beautiful questions you’ll be glad to have awakened. It’s a surprising departure from your usual approach to feeling good that will expand your understanding of what happiness means. Here’s one way to ensure that it will visit you in all of its glory: Situate yourself between the fabulous contradictions in your life and say, “Squeeze me, tease me, please me.”
