EDITOR’S NOTE SO MUCH TO DO, SO MUCH TO READ Once we clear Memorial Day, it feels as if each summer weekend brings a greater variety of things to do. But we’ll be hard-pressed to top this upcoming weekend. Beginning this Friday, June 15, the City of Boise will once more host some of the planet’s great extreme athletes when Rhodes Skate Park hosts the Road to X Games. Also this weekend, the 2018 edition of Pridefest kicks into overdrive, with a Capitol lighting celebration and concert in Cecil D. Andrus Park on Friday and then a Statehouse rally, parade and all-day festival continuing on Saturday, June 16. In this week’s issue, we hear from some Pride organizers who talk about the delicate balance of LGBTQ advocacy and celebration. You can read our story from Skylar Barsanti on page 8. We’ve got a couple of music features for you this week: On page 15, Ben Schultz takes a deep dive into ad hoc, a new album from Spiritual Warfare and the Greasy Shadows. Ben says we can expect some “beguiling” tunes, “ripping guitar hooks,” and even an “up-tempo ditty about the randomness and absurdity of existence.” On page 16, Derek Kaplan reminds us how Buddy Guy is still gettin’ it done. The 81-year-old Guy performs at the Morrison Center on Thursday, June 21. Staff Writer Lex Nelson introduces us to Angela Hemingway as this week’s Citizen on page 17. Hemingway is the director of the Idaho STEM Action Center and she talks about her efforts to “engineer creative opportunities that connect education and the workforce.” On page 19, Senior Staff Writer Harrison Berry spends some time with comedian Emma Arnold to hear about her first comedy special Yes, Please, which was filmed at the Visual Arts Collective in Boise and is now streaming on YouTube. We also want you to make certain to circle Saturday, July 7, on your calendar. That’s when we’ll be holding our annual bike race/scavenger hunt, Bars & Stripes.

NEWS PRIDE AND POLITICS

Celebration and education come well before politics at Boise Pridefest SK YL AR BARSANTI

John Knudsen passed away on May 14, 2018. Right to Try legislation, in his honor, lives on.

REST IN PEACE I first met John Knudsen and Dr. James Quinn, both of Boise, in 2016. For the better part of two decades, Knudsen had been a backcountry bush pilot and Alaska State Police Trooper. Meanwhile, Quinn had a distinguished medical career, serving as an orthopedic surgeon and emergency care physician. But in 2016, Quinn was semiretired and was studying new medications at Advanced Clinical Research in Meridian, while Knudsen had been robbed of most of his speech and motor skills by amyotrophic lateral sclerosis—also known as ALS, or Lou Gehrig’s disease. A story I wrote chronicling Knudsen’s struggle, called “Dear John” (BW, News, Feb. 10, 2016), garnered as much reader attention as nearly anything I had written before. “I was given a death sentence,” Knudsen told me at the time. Knudsen and Quinn didn’t meet until 2016 when, in separate efforts, they each tried to contact the Idaho Legislature and prompt it to consider so-called Right to Try legislation, which would allow terminally-ill patients to access trial medications that had not yet been given full FDA approval. “It’s too late for me,” Knudsen told me. “But it’s not too late for someone else.” Eventually, they caught the attention of Rep. Melissa Wintrow (D-Boise), who championed their cause, pushing Right to Try legislation through House and Senate committees, getting full approval from the Legislature and obtaining a signature from Governor C.L. “Butch” Otter, making Right to Try the law of the land in Idaho. “You’ve got an amazingly sharp mind. It’s a shame that your body isn’t paying attention. Here, I’ve got something for you,” Wintrow told Knudsen four months later, tucking a pen into his clenched fist. That same pen had been used by the governor to sign the legislation into law. “Your name is a part of history now.” Knudsen died on May 14 of this year. Quinn passed away two weeks later. They’ll never be forgotten by their family, friends, Rep. Wintrow or more than a few BW readers. My sincerest hope is that they’ll be also be remembered by the many Idahoans who will have them to thank for easing their own struggles to find peace. —George Prentice 6 | JUNE 13–19, 2018 | BOISEweekly

For Chelsea Gaona-Lincoln, running for public office wasn’t a question of how, but when. Over the last decade, she has held positions in the Idaho Democratic Party and been involved with the LGBTA Democratic Caucus of Idaho. Additionally, Gaona-Lincoln is currently the chair of Add the Words Idaho. Running for office was “just a progressive next step,” she said. This November, GaonaLincoln will be on the ballot to represent Canyon County’s District 10 in the Idaho House of Representatives, and while the campaign sometimes feels as if it’s non-stop, she said there are a few public events where political campaigning takes a backseat to LGBTQIA+ advocacy and education—and Boise’s annual Pridefest is at the top of that list. “Typically, when I attend Pride, it’s with an ADAM RO SENLUND Add the Words hat on—an advocacy hat, an educator hat,” she explained. “Constituency engagement comes from making sure folks know their rights in Idaho, and have knowledge of the resources they can access. It’s always hard that it’s not more political. The organizer in me always wants to get people rallied and make sure they’re registered to vote and all those kinds of opportunities. But celebration is always the name of the game for [Pridefest].”

COMING OUT AND GIVING BACK In 1989, Boise Pridefest began as a march to advocate for recognition of Boise’s LGBTQIA+ community. Celebrating diverse sexual orientations and identities, while important, wasn’t the first priority, according to

Boise Pride board member Andrew Bunt. But today, at Pride festivals in Boise and across the country, the tides have turned. Simply put, celebration and education come first. “We have our rally, which is our big call to action that yes, there is still work to be done,” said Bunt. “But Pride is something bigger, better, and the community wants to be involved. They’re seeing the positive impact Pridefest

can have in Boise, so we’re adding a lot of fun things this year to help that celebration. We’ve also taken a step back and asked ourselves, ‘Is this just a celebration or can this be more about what we, as an organization, can do to give back?’” Bunt said past events followed the same pattern: bingo nights, drag shows, more bingo, a bar hop and some dance parties. In thinking about 2018 Pride events, Bunt said his team was determined to incorporate the idea that the Boise community can put on one of the biggest festivals of the summer and still give something back to Boise as a whole. “There’s more to Pride than coming to a park and drinking beer,” he said. “That’s a fun part, but we can do more. We can do service

projects and show the community we appreciate their acceptance and the progress they’ve made. The community’s been very generous, and I think people are going to be very happy and surprised by what we have planned this year.” Bunt was tight-lipped about details on those service projects, but he did say that when it comes to serving the community, supporting different causes plays a significant role in Pridefest. Bunt made it clear that organizers don’t endorse specific political candidates, but they do support causes, such as Add the Words. Additionally, Pridefest has a unique opportunity to educate festivalgoers on human rights issues, and to engage in dialogue with other marginalized groups. “We’ve won some battles, but there are still some other groups of people we can help. We can open that door and understand their needs better,” Bunt said. “There’s a perspective we can bring to the table. Yes, we support causes, and you will hear that at the rally.” Gaona-Lincoln said the biggest political shift that she has seen at Pridefest in the past few years has been among Boise’s LGBTQIA+ youth and their allies. “They feel safer being there, engaging with their friends, participating at events, and they take advantage of the opportunity of meeting other people in the queer community that they wouldn’t necessarily get to meet otherwise,” she said. “That’s not something I had access to as a young person, so that sticks with me as a positive aspect of 7 what Pridefest brings.” BOISE WEEKLY.COM

Boise Police are preparing for what should be one of the busiest weekends in the city’s downtown core, beginning this Friday, June 15, and running through Sunday, June 17. That’s when the Road to the X Games qualifier will take over Rhodes Skate Park, the Harley Hooligan Race rolls into CenturyLink Arena and Pridefest fills Cecil D.

The shuttles, which will begin operating at 9:30 a.m. on June 15, and run through June 16, will depart from Ann Morrison Park and the city-owned Park & Ride lot at the corner of Fairview Avenue and 25th Street.

BOISE SHOWS ITS COLORS Officials at Boise City Hall have already unfurled rainbow-colored banners, which now line the streets of the city’s downtown core. Continuing the theme, one of the highlights of the 2018 edition of Boise Pridefest will come on the evening of Friday, June 15, when the Idaho Capitol will bathe in the rainbow colors of pride. But the process of getting those rainbow colors on the statehouse hasn’t been as easy as flipping a switch. In 2016, the Idaho Department of Administration said it didn’t have the “technical capabilities” to light the Capitol in rainbow colors. Robert Geddes, director of the Department of Administration, said his department wasn’t equipped to project all six colors on the Statehouse at one time. That prompted Pridefest organizers to get their own equipment, 6

BOISE WEEKLY.COM

power generators and even security— to the tune of $9,000—to make the rainbow a reality. Still, the annual question has remained: Will Pridefest be able to light the Statehouse with the colors of the rainbow again this year? For 2018, the answer is yes, but Geddes said the rainbow lights will not be allowed next year due to the high volume of people applying to illuminate the exterior of the Capitol. “We just have to start saying no because we’re so overwhelmed with those requests,” Geddes said. “If we allow some, we have to allow all.” Festivities this year, however, will go beyond lighting up the Capitol. The June 15 event will also include fireworks and music from recording artist and LGBTQIA+ activist Steve Grand on a stage sponsored by Wells Fargo Bank.

“Boise Pride works really hard to make it all happen,” said Gaona-Lincoln. “And really, it’s always a bittersweet moment to be able to celebrate at Boise Pridefest. It’s been a really positive change to have it in the heart of downtown Boise, across from the Capitol where decisions have been made. That’s a metaphor and a significance we can reflect upon.” Gaona-Lincoln added that not everyone who attends the Boise event lives in a place where they’re granted equal protection under the law. Boise is one of only 13 Idaho cities with nondiscriminination ordinances based on sexual orientation and gender identity. Living without those protections, said Gaona-Lincoln, makes it difficult to live, work and thrive in other parts of the state without some fear of discrimination in housing, employment and public accomodations. “The party goes on, but there’s still work to be done,” she said.

CERCLE ET CARRE AND THE INTERNATIONAL SPIRIT OF ABSTRACT ART You might think a group of artists that only hosted one exhibition would be easily dismissed by art historians, even if it had more than 80 members. Yet that’s not so with Cercle et Carre (Circle and Square), the international collective that held a single show in Paris in 1930. According to Boise Art Museum, which will debut a 50work exhibition dedicated to the group, and a separate one of work by its co-founder Pierre Daura, on Saturday, June 16, Cercle et Carre “represented nearly every trend in modernism: Cubism, Futurism, Dada, Constructivism, Neo-plasticism and Purism,” and left a lasting legacy that stretches from Russia to the Americas. Plus, it included the likes of Wassily Kandinsky, Marcelle Cahn and Piet Mondrian. Regular Boise Art Museum hours through Sunday, Oct. 7. FREE-$6.

ALIVE AFTER FIVE: IVORY DEVILLE, GROVE PLAZA, JUNE 13 Ivory Deville isn’t into labels—or rather, it’s into having so many that none stick. On its Bandcamp page, the Los Angeles-based group claims to be honky-tonk, rock and roll, surf, doo-wop and scuzz, and every one of those labels is blended and born out in the tracks of its latest album, Waistgunner (self-released, 2018). Songs like “Tube Top Blues” are heavy on honky-tonk rock, taking listeners from LA to Appalachia with loose, rousing vocals and a touch of nasal drawl from frontman Johnny Elkins, while “How Does it Feel” brings a doo-wop vibe with the layered voices of band members Laura Marion, Tia Simone and Jada Wagensomer backing Elkins on the choruses. But whichever way you slice it, the group is clearly having fun. Head down to Grove Plaza on Wednesday to test the Alive After Five organizers’ claim Ivory Deville is “an authentic roadhouse band for our time.” —Lex Nelson With Bread and Circus. 5 p.m., FREE.

MUSIC GUIDE TORY LANEZ: MEMORIES DON’T DIE TOUR—8 p.m. $28-$103. Knitting Factory Concert House

SATURDAY JUNE 6 SPEEDY ORTIZ, NEUROLUX, JUNE 14 The 2016 presidential election caused nationwide waves, and nothing—not even music—proved exempt from its pull. Speedy Ortiz, a Massachusetts-based indie rock band, is a case in point. According to songwriter and vocalist Sadie Dupuis, the group’s latest album, Twerp Verse (Carpark Records, 2018), was largely rewritten in light of the new political climate. She said in a press release, “The songs on the album that were strictly personal or lovey dovey just didn’t mean anything to me anymore. … Social politics and protest have been a part of our music from day one, and I didn’t want to stop doing that on this album.” Songs like “Lean in When I Suffer,” which zeros in on the pitfalls of communication and insecurity in the age of social media, and “Villain,” which speaks to fighting unwanted sexual advances, are emblematic of the shift. Get the full social scoop at Neurolux when the band rolls through town Thursday, June 14. —Lex Nelson With Anna Burch, and Xetas. 7 p.m., $12-$15.

Spiritual Warfare shakes loose with new album, ad hoc

800-368-3181

BEN SCHULTZ One of the best songs on ad hoc (self-released, 2018), the new album by local experimental pop project Spiritual Warfare and the Greasy Shadows, is “Shook Loose.” It’s a catchy, up-tempo ditty about the randomness and absurdity of existence. “Wasting time, turn on a dime. / Where did we come from on your mind,” sings project creator Joel Marquard. Later in the song, he slips in this sardonic couplet about human evolution: “Out of the water, we crawl / To our food court job at the mall.” That might not seem like a cheery sentiment, but Marquard’s rippling guitar hook, Bo Diddleyesque beat and ghostly background vocals make the song sound ecstatic rather than despairing. The Arizona transplant pulls off a similar trick on the bubbly “Angel of Death Donut Shop,” the swooning “Volcano Girls” and the 11-minute epic “Death Was an Olympic Speedskater.” Odd yet beguiling songs like these make ad hoc, which came out on May 12, one of the most fascinating local releases of recent years. True to its title, ad hoc’s idiosyncratic sound arose partially from resources Marquard had at hand. “In Pro Tools [a music software program], I found this disc in the box that said ‘Loops,’” he said. “So I put it in my computer one day, and it just has all these professionally recorded [tracks]. … They had all these Indian percussion loops—I mean, like, East India.” The sinuous rhythms that Marquard created from those loops help distinguish ad hoc from his earlier work, which includes albums with the emo band Dear and the Headlights, the indie-rock group Gospel Claws and the ersatz gospel project The Through & Through Gospel Review. The new LP doesn’t quite sound like Spiritual Warfare’s previous material either. “The first album, Double Voices (Moone Records, 2015), is more Bollywood-influenced,” Marquard observed. “This one is a little bit more exotica-influenced. … It’s kind of like lounge but also Latin, African, jungle stuff. Some of it gets really weird.” The eclecticism of Marquard’s music is surprising, considering his upbringing. “I grew up Christian,” he said. “My dad was a pastor—like, a music pastor. I eventually lost my BOISE WEEKLY.COM

Spiritual Warfare creator Joel Marquard: “It might be that I just get bored and am always looking for weird or interesting music to listen to.”

faith in my early 20s. … My mom was 40 when she had me, so they were very old-school. They didn’t even listen to The Beatles or anything 60s or any pop-rock or anything. My dad did traditional hymns and choir stuff, so I grew up just hearing choral music a lot, which is pretty cool.” It’s tempting to regard Marquard’s diverse oeuvre—not to mention the names of his various bands—as a rebellion against his childhood. He resists that interpretation, though. “It might be that I just get bored and am always looking for weird or interesting music to listen to,” he said. “I’m always trying to learn from different styles and productions. I sometimes wonder if I was a teenager in the 1950s in a past life because of my love for oldies and doo-wop and early 60s music. Because I certainly didn’t hear that growing up, even though that would have been my parents’ music.” Marquard discovered rock and roll in his teens. “I had a friend [named] Brian,” he remembered, “and he had a sister who was a lesbian stoner. She would play The Doors, and I fell in love with Smashing Pumpkins, too.” The Pumpkins’ blockbuster double album Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness (Virgin Records, 1995) made a particularly strong impression on him.

“It’s funny, I kind of learned variety from that album—the importance of variety,” Marquard said. “Just the range on that album is pretty amazing.” Religious music influenced Spiritual Warfare’s sound too. ad hoc’s multi-track vocals, for example, recall the choral music that Marquard heard growing up. “I love that stuff,” he said. “Any chance I get, I try to apply [it]. It’s kind of an underutilized thing, group singing. I also came across some gospel music, but white ‘hill people’-type shit. I’m not explaining it very well, but when you’re listening to that, there’s always this lady singing extremely high. And it just fills up the whole [space]. … I started using my pitch shifter, and I’ve been doing some chipmunk choir stuff.” Meanwhile, African American gospel recordings influenced ad hoc’s guitar sound. “The guitars are so out of tune, but you can feel their energy,” Marquard said. “I don’t know, there’s something cool—it just affirms that there’s a human behind that, you know what I mean?” Beyond the occasional Oregon or Washington gig, Marquard doesn’t plan to tour. There should be plenty more Spiritual Warfare music, though. As Marquard sings on “Shook Loose,” “there’s a lot more beating at the end of the drum.” BOISEweekly | JUNE 13–19, 2018 | 15

TOM BE E T Z

NOISE THE BLUES CAN’T STOP HIM NOW The everlasting power of Buddy Guy DEREK K APL AN Buddy Guy is the doggone definition of a “bluesman,” yet to call him one may be an understatement. Perhaps a “blues god” is more on the nose. Since his first record contract 60 years ago, there’s been no end to the man’s influence on the history of music. His blistering guitar licks indoctrinated the likes of Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton and Stevie Ray Vaughan, to name a few, and on Thursday, June 21, he’ll step onto the stage of The Morrison Center to give Boise a wailing dose of the Chicago blues. At the age of 81, Guy remains prolific. His schedule includes countless year-round tour dates and the release of a new album, The Blues is Alive and Well (RCA), which will drop Friday, June 15. The tracks boast appearances from megastar friends, among them Jeff Beck, Mick Jagger and Keith Richards. The album also features a contemporary duet with James Bay entitled “Blue No More,” which singlehandedly categorizes Guy’s demeanor in the twilight of his monumental career. Hailing from rural Louisiana, George “Buddy” Guy moved to Chicago in the late 1950s to pursue music as an occupation. He fell into good company, with late greats like Otis Rush, Willie Dixon and the iconic Muddy Waters. Guy was subsequently signed to Chess Records, but he later said his avantgarde guitar style was stifled by producers, who pigeonholed him as a session guitarist for many other Windy City recording artists. Feeling underutilized, Guy made the switch to Vanguard Records in the late 1960s, where his full potential was finally unleashed as a solo artist. Guy inspired scores of premier rock n’ roll musicians of multiple generations through his flamboyant live performances, where he showcased an unprecedented command of the guitar. Many of his acolytes, particularly those who embraced longevity, turned into enduring friends—helping him re-energize his career during occasional lulls in popularity. Eric Clapton, for example, invited Guy to play an integral part in his live album 24 Nights (Reprise, 1991), which contributed to a resurgence of blues music on the charts during the early 1990s.

The legends’ legend: Performing with 81-year-old Buddy Guy on his new album, The Blues is Alive and Well, are Jeff Beck, Mick Jagger and Keith Richards.

Guy became a Chicago entrepreneur when he co-founded The Checkerboard Lounge in 1972, a now-legendary blues nightclub on the city’s South Side. The club evolved into a hotspot for many classic concerts, most prominently for a live album by The Rolling Stones, Live at the Checkerboard Lounge, Chicago 1981 (Eagle Vision). In 1989, Guy opened another club: Buddy Guy’s Legends, in Chicago’s Loop. To this day, he plays there regularly and hosts the annual Chicago Blues Hall of Fame induction ceremony on its stage. Guy’s career peaked with Grammy Awardwinning albums, Damn Right, I’ve Got the Blues (Jive, 1991), Feels Like Rain (Silvertone, 1993) and Slippin’ In (Silvertone, 1994). The new millennium brought further acclaim for Guy, including his induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2005.

As a teaser for The Blues is Alive and Well, Guy released the song “Cognac,” which includes Jeff Beck and Keith Richards. The track is incendiary, sporting a slow-burn blues tempo with a trio of shredding guitars—it doesn’t get any better. Spry as ever, Guy has been on tour since March and will power through scores of concert dates this summer and into the fall, including a swing through Europe. The guitar master has apparently made the road his home for the time being, and there’s no stopping him as he continues to carve out a lasting blues legacy. Boise fans should prepare to bear witness to his unrelenting power and onstage stamina. But don’t be stunned if Guy throws some light-hearted cussing your way, or at the band, on occasion. It’s that kind of fighting spirit that cements him as one of the greatest live acts of all time. BOISE WEEKLY.COM

Idaho STEM Action Center Director talks grants, reaching aching kids and the importance of role models LE X NEL SON BI

Angela Hemingway, director of the Idaho STEM Action Center, could hardly suppress a laugh when she recounted the story of getting her job offer directly from Governor C.L. “Butch” Otter in 2015. “The legislation that created the center is four pieces of paper, and [the governor] slid it across the table and was like, ‘Can you start this new agency for me?’ and I said, ‘I don’t know, let’s find out!”’ she said. Hemingway didn’t come to the post emptyhanded. Before the creation of the center, she spent 14 years teaching biology, microbiology, chemistry, statistics and more to high school and college students. She also assisted the Idaho State Department of Education in setting science and testing standards, but it was in the classroom that she realized there were lacuna in her knowledge that could be filled by an outside agency just like the one she now heads. When her students at Kuna High School wanted to build a robot for a school project, Hemingway brought in engineers from Micron, Hewlett Packard and Idaho Power to help fill in gaps in her expertise. That experience was part of the inspiration behind the STEM Action Center’s mentorship portal, an online initiative that pairs STEM mentors and teachers with students across the state, particularly in rural areas, for work on specific STEM projects. The initiative recently scored a $50,000 grant in the US2020 STEM Coalition Challenge, and on the day the grant was announced, Hemingway sat down with Boise Weekly to talk about the center’s next steps. For those who aren’t familiar with your work, what is the mission and goal of the STEM Action Center? Primarily the mission is that we’re going to engineer creative opportunities that connect education and workforce … We’ve got a lot of jobs that are going unfilled and it’s the goal of the center to ensure that we have a homegrown workforce to fill those jobs. You’re also looking at making Idaho competitive nationally, is that right? Absolutely. We’ve got to not only draw in potential employers and potential workforce— which we’re doing well, we’re number one in the nation for population growth—but also then BOISE WEEKLY.COM

grow our own, [helping them] recognize that opportunities that maybe they believed only existed in Seattle or San Francisco actually exist right in their own backyard. How would you describe the STEM Action Center Mentorship Portal? It’s kind of like this matchmaking system that allows the mentor and student to connect … It really is a chance for the mentor to be in the comfort of their own office and [for example] engage with a student from Challis while the engineer is sitting right here in Micron. Now that you’ve won a $50,000 grant, how do you plan to expand the program? The piece that I see us enhancing with the platform is, once those connections are ready to turn into in-person [interactions]—like, ‘I want to make a visit,’ or ‘How about your school comes out to see where I work,’ ‘How about an internship or a job shadow,’ something that becomes more tangible—we want to build the system so that we can encourage and capture those relationships as they grow and emerge. I see online as just the first step to creating that connection. Last time I heard you speak, you focused on the difficulties of getting women into STEM and how they in particular need strong mentors. How will this portal benefit them? There are a number of different studies that show that students, male or female … if they don’t know an engineer, a computer scientist, a chemist, you name it, the chances of them pursuing that as a career are very low. You’ve just pulled out some slides of data from your folder—what do those show? [In this study] young girls are asked, “Do you know what an engineer does? Do they get to be creative? Do they do good things for the world?” And just by meeting an engineer, it shifts their beliefs up very significantly. We need to continue with that exposure so that engineers, computer scientists, have the opportunity to actually talk with these young women and young boys so that they can continue to encourage them.

Apart from the portal, your programming also prioritizes reaching kids when they’re young. How young do you aim for exactly? We just held a professional development focusing on 3- to 6-year-olds. So we did some training with kindergarten and pre-k providers and were able to get them some hands-on STEM tools and training. We do believe it starts kind of “cradle through career.” … Right now we’re doing a lot of pilot projects, experimenting, seeing where we’re going to have the greatest impact. Because as you recognize, working with a five year old, industry’s not going to see that child for 15, 20 years. What can you do with children that age to promote STEM? Well there are many tools that are out there that students that particular age can work with. … [For example] there’s something called the Code-a-pillar, where students can actually put together little pieces and one will make it turn left, one will make it turn right, one will make it do a circle, one will make it play a song. And what would you say to parents who worry that emphasizing STEM that early might contribute to the loss of liberal arts programming in schools? I think one thing employers are telling us is it’s fine if people come out of the pipeline with strong technical skills, but that’s not enough— they need to be critical and creative thinkers, they need to be problem solvers, they need to be able to work on teams and solve these challenges through collaboration. So the liberal arts, especially English with its slant on writing/speaking/ communicating, are critically important … One of our number-one coders in the state right now is a music teacher out of Jerome, she oversees our Botball program and she said to me, ‘I thought coding was going to be hard, but it’s just like musical notes.’ She was able to see through her love and knowledge of music that music is just a code creating sound.

ISF’S MACBETH AND THE BARD’S HELLWARD BRAID

the Macbeths talk themselves into committing regicide so Macbeth can become king. In the second, the couple starts to crack under the psychological and political consequences of their actions, fighting to hang on to power—literally for dear life. Like Dante’s “Inferno,” the play hinges on inversions. Power is vulnerability and wickedness is a virtue. The best arguments favor active villainy and pummel passive righteousness. Macbeth the king, a father to his country, kills its sons out of wild-eyed paranoia; and his wife, well, this line says it all: “Come, you spirits that assist murderous thoughts … to my female breast and turn my mother’s milk into poisonous acid.” Partin throws herself into her role as Macbeth’s provocateur, intertwining with him in a hellward braid, and wherever she is on the stage is where audiences can look for the fire. —Harrison Berry

In Macbeth, there are no subplots. It’s ironic that one of Shakespeare’s most wellknown plays is absent The Bard’s hallmark illicit trysts and bumbling, disaster-prone duos, but it makes up for it with one of the most lurid explorations of evil, perhaps anywhere. Charlie Fee, who directs the Idaho Shakespeare Festival’s production of Macbeth in addition to serving as the company’s producing artistic director, has this on lockdown. So does his Lady Macbeth, played by Erin Partin, who, at the June 5 performance, was a pitch-perfect moral foil to the rather tepid better angels of her husband, played by Lynn Robert Berg. Macbeth, for the uninitiated, is the story of how its titular character saves Scotland from invaders, succumbs to avarice with the encouragement of his wife and becomes a murderous, paranoid tyrant.

enter his domain. The story is meant to engage its young audience on the very mature topic of President Donald Trump’s desire for border walls and travel bans. “I really wanted it to be an empowering message for kids, and for parents to have discussions with kids about why we don’t build walls, why we welcome people who don’t look like us, why we want to be inclusive of everyone no matter where they’re from,” Costello said. “I just want it to be a conversation piece.” Despite its controversial theme, Costello said she has not faced much criticism for Catalina and the King’s Wall.

“I was bracing for potential disagreement, or for it to be more contentious; but I think because I took a lot of trouble to try and make it a gentle, fun story, it would be difficult to find fault in the message,” she said. Costello said when she read the book at her son’s Boise preschool to kids ages 3 to 5, she was pleasantly surprised that the teacher was then able to have a discussion about the book’s themes. “The kids understood. They got the message,” Costello said. Catalina and the King’s Wall is for sale at the Hyde and Seek gift shop in Boise’s North End, and on amazon.com. It can also be checked out at the Boise Public Library.

“So, the idea to write a book literally just popped into my head as I was standing there,” she said. “But I had no idea what I was getting into at the time.” Costello oversees the undergraduate psychology program for Walden University, an accredited online college. But putting together a book was an entirely new process for her. After working on the book nearly every day following the January 2017 march, it was ultimately published by Pennsylvania-based Eifrig Publishing this May. Catalina and the King’s Wall tells the story of a gluttonous king who decides to build a wall to keep different people out of his kingdom.

Boise-based neuroscientist and first-time author Dr. Patty Costello’s new children’s book looks at current social issues through a blue lens, despite Idaho’s red-state roots. In fact, Costello credits the 2017 Women’s March in Boise as a turning point that inspired her to write the book, Catalina and the King’s Wall. As she and her son stood at the snow-covered rally at the Idaho State Capitol, Costello said she thought of the many tales of intolerance being shared, and more importantly, how those messages might influence her son. Costello said she needed a tool, something she and other parents could use to help their children better understand today’s challenges.

A FILM BY JENNIFER PEEDOM NARRATED BY WILLEM DAFOE

HARRISON BERRY Imagine performing a comedy routine following an eulogy for a fellow comedian. That’s what Emma Arnold did. After leaving a crowd grieving the death of Jim Leugers at the Limestone Comedy Festival in stitches, she was approached by actor and fellow comedian Bobcat Goldthwait, who told her he’d never seen anyone do what she’d done. “He was like, ‘I’ve never seen anyone do that before. I don’t know what you’re doing, but whatever it is, it’s not comedy,’” Arnold recalled. Goldthwait and Arnold’s mentor Dana Gould produced her first self-released comedy special, Yes, Please, which was made available for free on YouTube in April. Filmed in June 2017 at the Visual Arts Collective, it’s rife with the kind of comedy that comes from having walked rugged emotional terrain. In it, Arnold tackles sex, raising three boys—one of whom has autism—and being a woman comedian in the age of Trump. She said she’s happy to take a jab at almost anyone, as long as she’s “punching up, not down.” “I don’t stay away from any subject,” she said. “Except race. I stay away from race, because I just figure, ‘What does a white girl from Idaho have to say about race?’ Nothing. Shut up. Everything else is fair game.” It’s true. In the special, Arnold cracks about having sex with her then-boyfriend for the first time, attending a less-than-informative

Performing these high-wire acts bolts her audience to its chairs, wondering if this is the joke that will split their sides or her career. It’s always the former. Arnold pulls off several such jokes with ease, but as warm and normative as her humor is toward family and friends, she is just as capable of being withering. Following a radio interview in which Arnold criticized Donald Trump, she was doxxed, and her phone number and a former address were released on the internet. She began receiving threats over social media—and more

than a few photos of her critics’ limp penises. In Yes, Please, Arnold tells her antagonists, “no, thanks.” “No one’s ever been scared of a flaccid penis,” she told the crowd. “It’s like a dead mouse.” The story is a reminder of how Trump’s election has peeled the lid off the misogyny buried inside comedy and society itself, she said. She continues to do comedy “to empower women,” and is currently rolling across the nation in a tour bus sponsored by Ladybits Toiletries. “I was, like, ‘Yeah, let’s do this,’” she said. “It’s all about vaginal pH now, for me.

But Mountain, an eyepopping cinematic and musical collaboration which sweeps across the planet’s most awesome

PAGE BREAK PRIDE ETIQUETTE PRIDE WEEK is here and that means there will many people out and about this week celebrating LGBTQIA+ accomplishments. Here are a few thing to keep in mind: 1. Everyone who supports LGBTQIA+ rights is welcome. This is a space where celebrating with with our friends and supporters is welcome. It takes a village. 2. Pride is NOT a petting zoo. Yes, sparkly things are beautiful, and as much as you might want to run up and touch someone, do not do so without permission. Consent is a 24/7/365 thing. 3. Support local vendors. Supporting local businesses that support LGBTQIA+ rights helps give you peace of mind. I don’t want you to lose sleep wondering if your hard-earned money has been shipped off to a hate company. 4. Don’t assume. Do you see a couple that is made up of a man and a woman? Great. That doesn’t mean that either one of them is heterosexual. Come to the event with an open mind and respect that all kinds of couples represent many different gender and sexuality combinations. 5. Wear sunscreen, or at least keep your skin’s safety in mind. It can be easy to forget that when you are having fun. While red is in the rainbow, it looks better on the flag than it does as a blistering, painful sunburn. 6. Stay hydrated. A hydrated Pride is a happy Pride. 7. See something you think Pride could use help with? Volunteer! Sitting back and complaining while others work helps exactly no one. HAPPY PRIDE 2018 EVERYONE! SUBMIT questions to Minerva’s Breakdown at bit.ly/MinervasBreakdown or mail them to Boise Weekly, 523 Broad St., Boise, ID 83702. All submissions remain anonymous.

MINERVA’S BREAKDOWN

A DAY IN THE LIFE OF MARLON BUNDO Vice President Mike Pence has a long track record of antagonism to LGBT rights. He also has a pet rabbit named Marlon Bundo, about which his daughter penned and wife illustrated a children’s book, Marlon Bundo’s A Day in the Life of the Vice President. In response, the HBO comedynews program Last Week Tonight with John Oliver presented the book A Day in the Life of Marlon Bundo, written by Jill Twiss and lovingly illustrated in watercolor by EG Keller, which describes Pence’s pet as being in a same-sex relationship. The couple is viciously opposed by a stink bug that bears the VP’s trademark snow-white, LEGO-man hairstyle. It’s a lovely tale about a clash of contemporary mores and overcoming naysayers—an ideal children’s book for a new generation and a Pride-approved addition to any coffee table. —Harrison Berry $19, available at Flying M Coffeeshop or wherever children’s books are sold. Taken by Instagram user bestpicsofboise.

ASTROLOGY GEMINI (May 21-June 20): “Whether you love what you love or live in divided ceaseless revolt against it, what you love is your fate,” Gemini poet Frank Bidart wrote in his poem “Guilty of Dust.” It’s time to be honest with yourself as you identify whom and what you love. Now is also a key moment to vividly register the fact that the story of your life in the coming years will pivot around those relationships. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Congratulations on the work you’ve done to cleanse the psychic toxins from your soul, Cancerian. It makes my heart sing to have seen you summon the self-respect necessary to stick up for your dreams in the face of so many confusing signals. I do feel a tinge of sadness that your heroism hasn’t been better appreciated by those around you. Is there anything you can do to compensate? LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You’re reaching the end of your year-long project to make yourself as steady as possible for at least the next five years. I pray you have been creating a rich sense of community and establishing vital new traditions and surrounding yourself with environments that bring out the best in you. If there’s any more work to be done in these sacred tasks, intensify your efforts in the coming weeks. If you’re behind schedule, make up for lost time. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): When the need for improvement gets overwhelming, you may be driven to get creative. Engineer Allen Dale said that “if necessity is the mother of invention, then laziness is the father.” Sci-fi writer Robert Heinlein agreed, saying “progress is made by lazy men looking for easier ways to do things.” I’m not sure if necessity or laziness will motivate you, Virgo, but what hat innovations might you launch? What tweaks can you finagle? LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): I’m happy to let you know that you’re entering a phase when you’ll find it easier than usual to unlearn any old conditioning that might be suppressing your ability to fulfill your rich potential. I urge you to seek out opportunities to unleash your skills and enhance your intelligence. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): It’s tempting to overdramatize. Going through with a splashy but messy conclusion has a perverse appeal. Rather than impressing everyone with how complicated your life is, why not aim for a low-key resolution that will set the stage for a productive sequel? Taking the latter route will be much easier on your karma, and in my opinion will make for just as interesting a story. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Each of us harbors rough, controversial, or unhoned facets of our identity, and we periodically reach turning points when it becomes problematic to keep those qualities buried or immature. I suspect you have arrived at such a turning point. So on behalf of the cosmos, I hereby invite you to enjoy a period of ripening and self-revelation. And I do mean “enjoy.” Find a way to have fun. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): For the next two weeks, an unusual rule will be in effect: The more you lose, the more you gain. You will have an aptitude for eliminating hassles, banishing stress and shedding defense mechanisms. A load of old, moldy karma could dissolve and disperse in what seems like a twinkling. If all goes well, you’ll be traveling much lighter by Sunday, July 1.

Humpin’ Hannah’s & The Rocci Johnson Band are Proud to Celebrate and Support Our LGBTQ Community!

BY ROB BREZSNY AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Avoid starting a flirtatious correspondence with a convict who’ll be in jail for the long haul. OK? You might be in the mood for high adventure. And that will be fine and healthy as long as you also exert a modicum of caution and discernment.

Come celebrate Boise Pride Week with us!

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You have won victories over not just your own personal version of the devil, but also over your own inertia. They won’t bother you for a long time. Right now you would benefit from a sabbatical—a vacation from all this high-powered character-building. May I suggest you pay a restorative visit to the Land of Sweet Nonsense? ARIES (March 21-April 19): An Aries acquaintance began a project of eliminating sugar from her diet by making a Dessert Altar in her bedroom. It compelled her willpower to work harder and become stronger than if she had excluded all sweet treats from her sight. Do you think this trick might work for you? If not, devise another strategy. You’re on the verge of escaping a temptation that’s no good for you.

$1 Shots, $2 PBR’s & No Cover All Pride Week for The Rocci Johnson Band! Humpin' Hannah's • 621 Main St in Downtown Boise!

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You have caressed and finessed The Problem. Now I suggest you let it alone for a while. Although you may need to return and do further work in a few weeks, my guess is that The Problem’s knots will change into seeds. The awkwardness you massaged will eventually yield a useful magic.
