DUE TO THE APPROACH of Hurricane Irma, and the mandatory evacuation order accompanying it, we were forced to put this particular print edition together on very tight deadlines. In order to accommodate the safety and travel needs of everyone working here, and to accommodate the corresponding speedup of the printing schedule, we put this paper to bed on Friday afternoon, a full three days earlier than usual. We have done our best to confirm that all events in this print edition are still scheduled, but can make no guarantees given the unusual nature of the situation. Therefore we urge you to double-check all information for yourself before attending a particular event. Hopefully that will be the worst inconvenience any of us locally will have to go through with this unprecedented storm. As I write this, the National Hurricane Center track for Irma has shifted west, apparently, but not definitely, alleviating much of the anticipated worst-case scenario for our immediate coastal area. However, as the storm is still several days away from here — and because the mandatory evacuation order took much of the choice out of our hands — we opted to stay with the early deadline protocol. We will provide coverage and updates on event schedules at our website at www. connectsavannah.com as well as on social media. At this moment, many Savannahians are reconsidering following the evacuation order because of the new NHC track for the storm. And Savannah being Savannah — where gossip and backbiting are often the main local pasttimes — many people are already criticizing Gov. Nathan Deal’s decision to make the evacuation order, as well as our own Chatham Emergency Management Agency’s (CEMA) parallel order, as somehow premature. I’ve heard that hindsight is always 20/20. But the problem here is that this isn’t even hindsight. Hurricane Irma is still a long way away as I write this. It might continue moving west. Or it might turn to the east again. No one knows, or can really know. What is “premature,” however, is making spur-of-the-moment, uninformed criticism of the decision to evacuate.

The truth is that preparing for a natural disaster of this magnitude is like preparing for D-Day. Assets need to be mobilized, shelters prepared and stocked, transportation provided, roads contraflowed, law enforcement officers and vehicles staged, utility vehicles moved all over the region to anticipate possible outages, etc. Indeed, the needed preparations are so vast that a decision not to evacuate would almost seem insanely irresponsible given what we know about Irma — not to mention what Savannah just experienced less than a year ago with Matthew. Keep in mind that when this evacuation order was given, Irma was the most powerful storm ever seen in the Atlantic Ocean. And almost all the models had it headed directly to Savannah, as possibly a Category 4 storm. If you give this even ten seconds of rational thought, you can see that there was no other sane decision to be made other than to plan to evacuate the coast. What really boggles my mind is how quickly some people locally seem to have forgotten all about the truly enormous

damage from Hurricane Matthew, not even a year ago. And how quickly people at that time criticized CEMA for looking as if they were moving too slow with an evacuation order. Top winds in Savannah proper during Matthew weren’t even hurricane force. That’s right — all the incredible damage to Savannah (Tybee Island excepted) due to Matthew was at the hands of tropical storm-force winds. As if that weren’t enough, we have over a decade of horrifying TV footage of storms like Katrina and Harvey to remind us of the dangers of hurricanes. If all of this still hasn’t convinced you of the need to take these threats seriously, you might just be unreachable. There will be plenty of time after Irma passes us by to criticize government officials if needed. And I will probably help lead the way. But for now it’s my fervent hope that the worst thing that happens is some people are only mildy inconvenienced by nature’s unwillingness to give us the exact path of a hurricane in advance, and have the luxury to indulge in any kind of criticism.

Rename this bridge: Now is the time of reckoning BY JESSICA LEIGH LEBOS

jll@connectsavannah.com

HISTORY is a heavy thing. It weighs on us even if we’re not conscious of it, the deeds and consequences of the past dragging behind as time marches onward. History is so heavy it’s literally carved in stone, on once-sacred mountains and towering marble monuments. History is about the facts, and how we tell the story of those facts. History is dates, it is words, it is names. It is supposed to be about truth, but the truth can look different depending on where you’re standing. The story only has room for so many tellers. History is also malleable, changeable as the flow of a river, dark places enlightened by new perspectives, bronze statues folding into a crumpled pile in an instant. Flags come down. Narratives shift. When it comes to Eugene Talmadge, history is fairly clear: The former Georgia governor promoted segregation and white supremacy with wild-eyed self-righteousness, a chest-beating racist who exploited the apartheid mission of Jim Crow to the fullest extent. His repression of the rights of black citizens and advocacy for their lynching is well-documented. He was a sweaty, suspender-snapping bully with a bullhorn. No one I know would even accept a Facebook friend request from him, let alone admit to aligning themselves with his politics. Yet his name is memorialized on the gateway to Savannah, that futuristic cabled arc that is one of the city’s most iconic symbols. The Talmadge Bridge might look like bright, shiny progress, but the weight of its odious legacy could sink a container ship. “It’s the most modern thing in the landscape, but the name doesn’t reflect it,” remarked SCAD architecture chair Dr. Robin Williams during last week’s public discussion, “Renaming the Talmadge Bridge.” “It seems incongruous.” It’s also more and more outrageous, given the current cultural dialogue. As communities around the South make swift and decisive changes around the presentation of their Confederate monuments, it shouldn’t take much debate to realize that it’s near impossible to promote Savannah as an international economic and artistic lode star when its biggest piece of infrastructure is named after a 20th century Klan supporter.

The “new bridge,” technically called the Talmadge Bridge. Same as the “old bridge.”

The Sept. 5 event—sponsored by Span the Gap and The Beach Institute—was scheduled long before the horror show in Charlottesville last month, and the effort to change the name of the bridge began long before that. The latest endeavor is headed up by Ron Christopher, a Savannah native who graduated from Harvard Law School by way of Hitch Village and has taken the helm of Span the Gap, launched in 2015 by artist/activist Lisa D. Watson. A survey last year garnered more than thousands of responses in favor of changing the name, the majority suggesting it be replaced with Tomochichi. Ron and Lisa helped organize last week’s panel, which drew several hundred people to the Savannah Theatre, the vast majority it seemed not so much questioning whether or not the name ought to be changed, but how and when already. “It is a wrong that needs to be righted,” said panelist Bernetta Lanier, a fourth generation Savannahian and economic development consultant who deeply impressed me when she ran for District 1 seat on City Council in 2015. Unfortunately, it’s not as simple as taking a Sharpie to the green highway sign. The change requires a majority vote from

“It’s the most modern thing in the landscape, but the name doesn’t reflect it. It seems incongruous.” included prominent native Dr. Mark Murphy, progressive commentator John McMasters and myself—were on the same page of bringing Savannah onto the just side of history. (As for a name, the consensus at the discussion was that the simple “Savannah Bridge” would do just fine.) Not everyone in the audience agreed—a couple of brave souls raised their hands when I asked—and I was disappointed that they didn’t stay for Q&A because I honestly wanted to hear what they had to say. I understand how some could see removing Talmadge’s name from the bridge as “erasure,” and there might be something to that. I echoed Lisa Watson’s suggestion that a historical marker could be placed on the remaining pylons of the old bridge, jutting up next to Bay Street. This brought a lot of groans and tsktsks, but I made the point that Nazi concentration camps still exist as educational sites for future generations so that the tyranny and tragedy is not forgotten. We must never forget who Eugene Talmadge was and what he stood for—and we mustn’t let history forgive it: History is about the facts, and how we tell the story about those facts. The poet Aberjhani—whose eloquent writings on the Talmadge Bridge can be found at writingjunkie.net—lamented last year that it “should not be necessary to stage marches across the bridge or have sitins” to remove Talmadge’s name. I posited to the crowd that maybe it’s exactly what’s necessary—that change will take nothing less than an act of civil disobedience by the people of Savannah who live in its present and believe in its future. The image of hundreds of people on the bridge together would send a definitive message, the only snafu being that it might be a federal crime. “This is serious and dangerous work,” warned Rev. Francys, right before he broke into a grin and informed that the NAACP has a bail bond fund that he might access as president of the state chapter. Civil Rights veteran Dr. Johnson clapped the podium with a smile, vowing his participation. “Come bail me out!” Several people came up afterwards and asked when we march. That kind of organizing isn’t my forte, but I’ll be there with bells on, as they say. All I know is that history is heavy, but the narrative is shifting. Now is the time to right the wrong, to reckon with power and claim our own. Are we willing to span the gap? CS

both houses of the Georgia Assembly, an action that has thus far been prevented from even reaching the floor of the Gold Dome, in spite of having been championed by three Savannah mayors, including John Rousakis, Dr. Otis Johnson—who served as moderator of the panel—and current mayor Eddie DeLoach. It is no accident Talmadge’s name was memorialized on the bridge in the first place, propounded Dr. Johnson, but was a direct response to the Brown vs. the Board of Education decision to integrate public schools by the political power structure back in 1954. Neither was it an afterthought when the original cantilever truss bridge was replaced with the modern spires in 1991 and Talmadge’s name came with it. No, continued Dr. Johnson, Talmadge’s name is meant to be an insult and a warning to those who would challenge the families that still have a firm fist on Georgia’s economics and politics. “We brought the name change to the state delegation two years ago,” recounted pioneering business pioneer Pamela Oglesby. “And their response was, ‘Did you speak to Mrs. Talmadge?’” They didn’t mean Eugene’s widow but the third wife of the late U.S. Senator Herman Talmadge, Eugene’s son who thwarted the Civil Rights movement at every turn during his congressional tenure. Other Talmadge family members reportedly intimidated Chatham Country legislators in the hallway when they tried to bring the name change to the floor in 2013. But it is only a matter of time before such influence loses its grip, and that time is coming sooner than later. “No lie can live forever,” nodded Rev. Francys Johnson, who reminded that the bridge is just one example of the constant historical affronts African Americans must endure every day in this city. From the audience, Sen. Lester Jackson, chair of the Georgia Legislative Black Caucus, announced that he would push the issue during the next legislative session, though he warned that it might be difficult to get the entire GA on board with changing the name of one lil’ bridge. Perhaps there is a coalition to be built of other communities around the state who are challenging the narrative embedded in their infrastructure? While the discussion was impassioned and fascinating (Rev. Francys told of his 102 year-old grandfather, regrettably named after Eugene Talmadge), all seven members of the panel—which also

#DREAMs dashed

DACA repeal affects local undocumented students BY JESSICA LEIGH LEBOS

jll@connectsavannah.com

CONNECT SAVANNAH | SEP 13-19 2017

BEFORE last Tuesday, Daniela Rodriguez had a solid career path. The Armstrong State University senior has one more semester left before she earns her degree in Psychology and envisioned herself counseling refugees and rape victims. But now that the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) policy will be repealed, Rodriguez will have to put her dreams of helping others on hold. “I had hoped that after graduation that I would get my Masters’ degree,” says 23 year-old Mexico native whose parents brought her to the U.S. over a decade ago. “Now I won’t even be able to work at all. I don’t know what’s going to happen in the next six months. I’m in limbo.” Created by the Obama administration, DACA deferred deportation and granted a temporary right to study, work and live in 12 the U.S. to certain young people without

proper immigration documentation. Approval to the program required a rigorous vetting process and enrollment in school or the armed forces, and 800,000 young people have been accepted by the program since 2012. On Tuesday, Sept, 5, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced that the Trump administration would no longer accept new applications for DACA and dissolve the program completely by March 2018, erasing the legal status of current enrollees who will face possible deportation. Those affected are mostly from Mexico, El Salvador and Honduras, though most have never seen those countries since they were small children. “It was not our decision to come here, but we are going to school, working, trying to make our own opportunities,” laments Rodriguez. “This is home.” Rodriguez and other members of the Savannah Undocumented Youth Alliance (SUYA) traveled to Atlanta on Labor Day to protest the announcement. They joined several hundred other demonstrators at the Atlanta City Detention Center,

the main office of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). Some carried signs emblazoned with “Defend DACA” while others chanted “Undocumented, Unafraid” and “Protect our Dreams.” “It was the biggest rally I’ve seen for this issue,” she reports. “It’s good to know that we have so many allies.” Georgia is home to about 24,000 DACA enrollees who are all currently full-time students or have full-time jobs per the program requirements. They’re called “dreamers” after the Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors Act (DREAM) still pending in Congress. Since the Tuesday’s announcement, Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed tweeted his continuing support of DACA, as did Rep. Hank Johnson of the state’s Fourth District. “By rescinding DACA, President Trump is sending a clear and unambiguous message to his Steve Bannon-alt right supporters that they have a friend in the White House,” wrote Johnson in a statement released by his office. “This rescission is consistent with

President Trump’s despicable pardoning of convicted civil rights violator Sheriff Joe Arpaio, which came on the heels of the President’s reference to Nazi, Klan and alt-right sympathizers in Charlottesville as ‘good people.’ President Trump did the wrong thing in failing to protect our DACA youth, and history will judge him harshly. Congress must now move immediately to pass legislation that protects these courageous, patriotic DREAMers.” The Georgia chapter of the ACLU promised that it is not giving up the fight to protect the rights of DACA youth. “The ACLU of Georgia will continue to stand with…all Dreamers who have earned the right to live and work in the country where they grew up and continue to call home,” the organization said on its website. SUYA leader Rodriguez isn’t giving up either. “I’m still getting up and going to class every day,” she says. “I feel that I have a lot to contribute to my community and my country, and I want to do that more than anything.” CS


NEWS & OPINION STRAIGHT DOPE CLASSIC

FOR ONCE, our answer is a pretty clear yes. According to the World Meteorological Organization, humanity experienced nearly five times as many natural disasters (3,496) in the first decade of this century as we did during the 1980s (743). That said, the increase in the sheer number of events isn’t as simple as it seems. For one thing, as you’ve pointed out, everything’s better-documented these days—though how anyone manages to appropriately angle their phone to film themselves running down Everest away from an avalanche and then moments later post it online is beyond my imagination. Backing up a bit: As a species and a planet we’re more vulnerable to cataclysmic events than in the past, and a considerable part of this vulnerability comes from climate change. It’s of course impossible to pinpoint what percentage of events are directly our fault, but there are signs we’re not doing ourselves any favors. If you divide disasters into climaterelated events (tornadoes and hurricanes, flooding, etc.) and geophysical occurrences (earthquakes, tsunamis), the latter have remained basically steady for decades while the former are responsible for at least 80 percent of the overall increase in reported disasters. Floods and megastorms represented 89 percent of all disasters between 1970 and 2012. Heat waves are responsible for a much larger proportion of deaths in the last decade than ever before, and some of the deadliest killers of the past half-century were droughts in East Africa. And over that same 42-year period, damage from storms, droughts, and flooding (in that order) have cost the most money—more than 80 percent of overall disaster losses worldwide. But 10 percent of that went just to the Sandy and Katrina cleanups (and in Katrina’s case, the cleanup of the cleanup). Which stands to reason: it obviously costs a lot more to repair disaster damage in New York City than in Sri Lanka, and the money is more easily come by. You see where it gets tricky—the definition of natural disaster is unavoidably tied to the number of people affected and/ or the value of the damage done, both of which will naturally increase as the earth’s population and wealth do, and of course wealth and population aren’t evenly distributed worldwide. And that brings us to the other big part of our growing vulnerability to disasters: urban migration in developing countries means denser populations, which often goes hand in hand with quickly-assembled, not overly sturdy housing.

The parts of the world where this is most common tend to have largely informal economies, in which the enforcement of building-code regulations may not be a top priority. All this makes it much more likely that a serious meteorological or seismic event will meet the Office of U.S. Foreign Disaster Assistance’s criteria for a disaster: ten or more people killed and at least 100 injured, evacuated, displaced, or left homeless. By that organization’s count we now have twice the number of disasters per year that we did 20 years ago. Take the Haitian earthquake of 2010: measuring 7.0 on the Richter scale, it killed about a quarter-million people, with another 1.5 million displaced; a whopping $13.34 billion dollars was spent in aid. As it happens, a 7.0 also hit New Zealand later that year, followed by a much more destructive 6.3 aftershock in early 2011. Total deaths: 181. The key to the difference, of course, is that Haiti has about twice the population of New Zealand living in a tenth the space, and the buildings housing this population are of generally poorer quality—the lack of rebar and other structural reinforcement led to exponentially greater damage. Comparing India and the U.S., it’s a similar story: between 1980 and 2002 India had 14 major earthquakes killing 32,117 people, while the U.S. had 18 that killed only 143. And so on: a disproportionate share of the deaths caused by environmental shocks are borne by people in developing countries where population growth is greatest. According to the University of Colorado, roughly 403 million people live in places with significant seismic hazard. It only makes sense that the death tolls are increasing. So yes, there are more disasters, and they’re hitting us harder. This may not be entirely inevitable: Indian prime minister Narendra Modi, for instance, is pushing a seven-year, $2 trillion plan to build improved housing for 170 million citizens now living in slums. On the other hand, climate change will worsen as long as we continue to ignore it, as President Obama not-quite-jokingly pointed out at the White House Correspondents’ dinner in April. At any rate, we’re not likely to turn the more-catastrophes trend around soon. The fact that CGI is finally capable of realistically rendering all this stuff for summer-blockbuster audiences is small consolation, but for now it may be all we’ve got. cs

POST-IRMA environment permitting, the Savannah Philharmonic Orchestra and Chorus are scheduled to open their 20172018 season this weekend at the Lucas Theatre with an electrifying opener titled “The Thousand and One Nights.” The show opens with the overture to “The Bartered Bride” by Smetana, progressing to Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 21 with guest soloist Margaret Singer. The evening concludes with Rimksy-Korsakov’s “Scheherazade.” We spoke with Savannah Philharmonic Artistic Director and Conductor Peter Shannon about the opening night, and about some highlights from the rest of the season. “Everyone knows Smetana from ‘The Moldau,’” Shannon says. “But whereas ‘The Moldau’ is more reflective, this is an effervescent, exciting, energetic opening.” Shannon has worked with pianist Singer one time before, when the Savannah Philharmonic did a full staging of the Mozart opera ‘Cosi fan tutte.’ “I really enjoy working with her. We have this eye-to-eye communication,” says Shannon. “It’s a real thrill to work with a musician at that level when there’s a real sense of knowing what each other wants, and what the composer wants.” The Rimsky-Korsakov showpiece is also going to be a showstopper, Shannon says. “It’s a massive piece, very virtuosic. It’s an epic piece – the whole story is epic. About the adventures of Sinbad and the sailor, crashing waves, everything about it is gripping,” he says. “Scheherazade” features a series of violin solos, serving as a central part of the

narrative. “This piece features concertmaster Sinisa Ciric ,” says Shannon. “It’s so wonderful to see the motivation of the orchestra to support him. That helps my work as well, when one of the orchestral players is under particular pressure. Their colleagues get behind him or her more.” “Scheherazade” of course tells the story of the Thousand and One Nights – sometimes called The Arabian Nights — of storytelling by the titular character, in order to save her life. “There’s something about Russian and French composers using the whole palette of the orchestra,” Shannon says of RimskyKorsakov’s colorful arrangement. “Germans do tend to be somewhat reserved, in the style of Brahms or Schubert. Their power is somewhere else.

But French or Russian composers stylistically wear their heart on their sleeve. What we hear is what we get,” says Shannon. “Rimsky-Korsakov of course has that element of daring and death-defying myusical stunts. He throws everything on the page and says, deal with it!” Shannon exclaims. “Technically it’s very difficult to play. The orchestra must play loudly, but play loudly with passion, with conviction. I want to hear force, but not forced sound.” Another upcoming season highlight is the ever-popular Picnic in the Park, this year scheduled for Oct. 8. “The theme this year is Lights, Camera, Music. So of course there will be many movie references,” says Shannon. “We’ll have ‘Also Sprach Zarathustra,’ aka the theme from ‘2001: A Space Odyssey.’ We’ll have a tribute to John Williams, and music from ‘Pirates of the Caribbean.’” The season concludes in May 2018 in the most epic possible way, with a performance of Beethoven’s legendary Ninth Symphony, with full choral accompaniment by the

Due to the mandatory evacuation for Hurricane Irma, this print edition had to go to press earlier than usual. As we went to press, the Lonestar show at The Stage On Bay was still scheduled to take place. We urge you to confirm for yourself.

COUNTRY sensations Lonestar bring their catalog of hits to The Stage on Bay for a special Military & First Responder Appreciation Concert this weekend. Formed in 1992, Richie McDonald, Michael Britt, Keech Rainwater, and Dean Sams have been keeping their sincere take on pop-country going for decades. Originally called Texassee, the band formed after meeting in Opryland USA theme park in Nashville. The band made its live debut in Nashville in 1993, signing to BNA Records in 1995 and releasing Lonestar Live, a live EP recorded at Nashville’s

Wildhorse Saloon, that year. Guitarist Michael Britt, a Fort Worth native, grew up around country music in his hometown and shared musical tastes with his bandmates. “We’ve all lived around [Dallas/Fort Worth] for some of our lives and listened to the same kind of music on the radio,” he says. “We were around the same kind of bands and everything, even though we had different influences, we all had that in common. When we made it to Nashville, we were all on the same page.” While living in Austin, Britt dug into the blues and rock scene, which later influenced his guitar work. “I was really into the blues and rock stuff,” he recalls. “A friend of mine in a country band talked me into joining that and I fell in love with it. I incorporated blues and rock stuff and learned country stuff, too. Country’s a great blend of different styles.” Over the years, Lonestar has won fans over with genuine lyricism about family, love, and human connections. 1999’s sweeping ballad “Amazed” became a definitive track for the decade and remains a top pick for weddings and lovebirds trying to find just the right tune to convey their feelings. As Lonestar’s longest-lasting number one single and biggest hit, the song spent eight weeks ruling the Billboard country chart. The song is only one of two country songs in the 2000s to hit number one on the Hot 1000. Fatherhood is a running theme throughout Lonestar’s best-known work. 2003’s “My Front Porch Looking In” is an upbeat song about a man’s adoration for his wife and children. “I’m Already There” tells the story of a man on the road, calling home and reassuring his family of his love for them. The tender, tearjerker became a modern country classic, peaking at No. 1 on the US Hot Country Songs chart and No. 2 on the Adult Contemporary charts. In the “Message from Home” version on From There to Here: Greatest Hits, the band even included dubbed-in phone calls placed by family members of soldiers as a tribute to the military. “We write about ourselves,” Britt explains of their lyrical approach. “That’s just something that’s really important to us: our families. And it just kind of shows in the music. They’re songs that mean something to us in some way. And it seems like

family songs seem to mean something to our fans, as well.” The band writes among themselves and also works with some of the hottest writers in country music. Britt says finding the right writer is like “casting a movie.” “We have an idea, and try to find people who make that idea come out the best,” he says. “When we decide to work on new records, we book writing appointments, get together amongst ourselves, find a song that creates the tone for the album.” That was certainly the case with “Never Enders,” the declarative, unifying title track of the band’s 2016 album. “We’re lettin’ goers, we’re hold-on-ers/ We weren’t born to be goners/We dig deep, we go long/Where we come from is strong/ We are changers-with-the-timers/We are lovers, we are fighters/We came here to stay, ain’t never gonna walk away,” the verse preaches. “‘Never Enders’ was the song that set the tone for the rest of this last album,” says Britt. “We loved it from the first time we heard it, and that’s what we wanted to lead with.” Life on the road and stage hasn’t changed much for Lonestar over the band’s 25-year career. “We just kind of do what we do,” Britt says. “We’ve done it for so long, we kind of relax and go play. It’s actually been fun the last couple of years—we have more time off where we decide to take a couple days off on the road, have cookouts, do fun stuff. We kind of make being on the road fun instead of it being a chore over the last couple of years.” Britt and the band look forward to performing hits, deep cuts, and new tunes for Savannahians. “We’ll have a few surprises,” he says. “People forget how many songs they remember of ours and will say, ‘I totally forgot about that song!’ Our show’s show’s chock-full of songs people know. And we’ll throw in a few curveballs.” CS

THE GET RIGHT BAND @BARRELHOUSE SOUTH

BOY FUTUREBIRDS HARSHER

Ashevillle’s The Get Right Band returns to Savannah this weekend. With a unique blend of rock, funk, an reggae, the group has received high praise from NPR, Huffington Post, WTF w/ Marc Maron, and more. Formed by guitarist Durocher and bassist Jesse Gentry, who have been performing together since their tweens, The Get Right Band thrives thanks to great chemistry between its players, stellar chops, and inventive arrangements. The band release its third studio album, Who’s in Charge?, in 2016. Recorded at the legendary Echo Mountain Studios in Asheville, the record was mixed by Julian Dreyer (The Avett Brothers, Dawes, Band of Horses) and mastered by six-time Grammy winner Brian Lucey (The Black Keys, Grace Potter, Dr. John, Beck). SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 16, 9 P.M., FREE, 21+

MC and producer Darnell Little tours South from his Camden, New Jersey home. The 23-year-old artist released his debut album, Blackamoor, on June 30, 2017. Throughout the record, Little explores what it means to be a darkskinned man in today’s America. Using the lens of his own life, experiences, and struggles, Little strives to provide hope and showcase strength and perseverance in his lyricism. Jizza Raw, Rico Suave, and Deno Sima join the bill. SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 16, 8 P.M., ALL-AGES

SPOTLIGHTS, HOTPLATE @EL-ROCKO LOUNGE

Coastal Rock Productions brings Spotlights, the project of Brooklyn-based married couple Mario and Sarah Quintero, to El-Rocko. Formerly of the band Sleep Lady, the Quinteros bring a heavy, dreamy sound with a sludgy base and shoegaze shimmer. Spotlights released a debut full-length, Tidals, in the spring of 2016. Savannah’s math rock innovators Hotplate join the bill. 22 TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 19, 9 P.M., FREE, 21+

DRAB MAJESTY

DARNELL LITTLE

THE GET RIGHT BAND

DARNELL LITTLE @SENTIENT BEAN

In Drab Majesty, Deb DeMure—the androgynous alter-ego of L.A. musician Andrew Clinco—creates gothic post-punk sounds reminiscent of Sisters of Mercy and The Cocteau Twins. Most recently, Drab Majesty released ‘Oak Wood,’ available for vinyl order through Dais Records. Written after the Ghost Ship warehouse fire in Oakland, “Oak Wood” is written in honor of Cash Askew, whose life was lost in the tragedy. “Egress,” the release’s B-side, is an elegant, instrumental guitar piece. Live performance is crucial to Drab Majesty as an art form—with DeMure’s presence, body language and melodies, it’s an engrossing experience. Pyramid Club features Chris Daresta (Anticipation, DKA) and Matt Weiner (TWINS, DKA) making primitive body music, released on Atlanta’s DKA Records. Formed in Savannah, Boy Harsher is now based in the Northeast and continues to make fascinating EBM as a duo. A new EP, ‘Country Girl,’ is due on October, with preorders currently available. TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 19, 9 P.M., $10, 21+

Humberto Moro

Curator brings work of Argentinian artist Liliana Porter to SCAD MOA

practice without it becoming a retrospective exercise.

3.

What’s the curatorial process like at SCAD?

BY RACHAEL FLORA

CONNECT SAVANNAH | SEP 13-19 2017

rachael@connectsavannah.com

ESTEEMED Argentinian artist Liliana Porter’s exhibition, “Other Situations,” now hangs at the SCAD Museum of Art. Porter’s work has been exhibited in over 35 countries, and she has been involved in over 450 group shows. Humberto Moro is SCAD’s curator of exhibitions and was instrumental in bringing “Other Situations” to the museum. We spoke with him last week.

1.

How did you come about getting Liliana Porter’s work at the museum?

At SCAD Museum of Art we program our shows carefully, considering how these exhibitions, separately and together, will impact our pedagogy at SCAD. In that sense, Liliana’s work is incredibly flexible 26 and appears in a range of mediums like

drawing, photography, installation, sculpture, videos, printmaking and objects. I think that seeing a revision of her work demonstrates the consistency and the evolution of an artist over decades. An exhibition format like this in an academic environment can be a catalyst for many conversations across disciplines. Specifically, “Other Situations” by Liliana Porter offers many outlooks about the difference in perception, time and scale. It is a show that is generous in terms of how it shares some of the artist’s conclusions about gaining perspective and being very much in the present. We all agreed that this was the right time and space for her work to be seen.

2. How much was Porter herself involved in the curation process?

When curating “Other Situations,” the process and the development of the show was very thoughtful and in close collaboration with the artist. The exhibition comes entirely from Liliana’s studio and archive in upstate New York. This process turned out to be a luxury, curatorially speaking, as we avoided massive logistical challenges commonly encountered when working with an artist of Porter’s notoriety, where we are working with multiple lenders and institutions. I had two sessions with Liliana at her archive in New York, in which we revised a vast body of work and carefully considered how we could offer context to understand more than five decades of her

We have a team lead by Kari Herrin, executive director of museums and exhibitions; Storm Janse van Rensburg, chief curator; Amanda York; assistant curator; Ben Tollefson, assistant curator, and myself. Our curatorial process is collaborative, framed by open discussions and ongoing dialogue. The majority of the conversation is how to enrich and support the SCAD community and the university’s mission and vision. Because SCAD is an international university, we are participants in the ever-evolving dialogue about art, artists, practice, media and message in the city of Savannah, the country, and around the globe. We are committed to bringing meaningful art experiences that have the power to spark creativity and thought leadership. We have a supportive networking program in which we attend major art events around the world, which gives us the opportunity for us to propose the artists and work that best suits our vast community of interests, and supports institutional lines of research.

4. What can we expect from the show?

“Other Situations” includes more than 30 works that focus on key moments in Porter’s momentous career. The show includes four groups of work: one from 1973 examining notions of performance, the body and what Liliana calls “the virtual space” (an expression she coined in a pre-computer time); a second group of work that interprets the legacy of heroes, cultural and political figures and how those are absorbed into everyday culture; the third group comes from a series titled

Argentinian artist Liliana Porter

“Forced Labor” in which the artist uses miniature figurines to ensemble installations that speak about work; and the last group – which is perhaps the most heady – deals with notions of simulacra, and reality, taking on the legacy of Latin-American magic realism literary movement.

5.

Why did you think the type of work in “Other Situations” deserved to be exhibited in the SCAD MOA? Liliana is one of the most important Latin-American artists, with over a hundred institutional shows throughout her career. This year alone, she was part of the 57th Venice Biennale, where her work titled “Viva Arte Viva” curated by Christine Macel, and presented a theater play in Buenos Aires. She also had an extensive retrospective in Spain, three group shows in different countries and a solo show in New York. Her production is both visually intriguing and conceptually solid, and responds directly to the profile of world renowned artists and visionaries that SCAD MOA is committed to bring to our community. At SCAD we have majors of sequential arts, writing, gender studies, film, art history, and studio arts, to which this exhibition offers a unique opportunity to connect with the life and work of one of the most relevant cultural producers of our time.

GOOD TIME

SINCE 2001  BREWING COFFEE & COMMUNITY

BY MATT BRUNSON

OOO It took a few years, but once the silly fanboy snickering subsided, Kristen Stewart was able to move on from the Twilight series and reclaim her title as an accomplished actress with such credits as Camp X-Ray, Personal Shopper and particularly Clouds of Sils Maria (for which she became the first American actress to ever win France’s Oscar equivalent, the Cesar Award). While it’s unclear whether Taylor Lautner will enjoy a similar renaissance — his recent efforts have consisted of dopey thrillers and Adam Sandler stinkbombs — Stewart’s other Twilight stud, Robert Pattinson, appears to be on the right path with his selection of interesting roles in various indie flicks. Pattinson’s latest effort in this vein is Good Time, a striking drama directed by sibling filmmakers Josh and Benny Safdie. With Josh co-scripting with Ronald Bronstein and Benny co-starring with Pattinson, the brothers certainly have their DNA all over this project, and while their previous pictures are known only to the most dedicated cineastes, this one should allow them more exposure as they move forward. Good Time finds RPatz and BSaf respectively starring as Connie Nikas and his younger brother Nick. Connie is a smalltime hustler and crook while Nick is mentally impaired, and while Connie loves his bro, he doesn’t always do what’s best for him. Case in point: Connie elects to rob a bank and decides that his slow-witted sibling would make an excellent accomplice. Instead, Nick ends up getting arrested following the heist, and Connie must figure out a way to spring him from jail. What follows is one of those all-nightlong odysseys that’s taxing for the characters but weirdly fascinating for the viewer (think Martin Scorsese’s After Hours or even Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle). Connie Nikas isn’t likable in the least, but there is a sliver of redemption in his singleminded devotion to his brother. Yet what makes Connie such a compelling character is that he’s completely delusional about his own abilities and intelligence. Here’s a man who thinks he’s smart, but situation after situation proves that he’s anything but. This is amusing enough, but then the second half introduces a new character in the form of Ray (Buddy Duress), another petty criminal. If anything, Ray is even thicker than Connie, and their scenes together are among the movie’s best. It’s like Dumb and Dumber—only better and better.  

IN THIS CORNER OF THE WORLD

OOO Sparse in its visual style yet weighty with its themes, In This Corner of the World is a Japanese animated feature that largely concerns itself with the bombing of Hiroshima toward the end of World War II. Like many other anime features, this one isn’t exactly for the kids, with a PG-13 rating to allow parents to debate whether it’s a proper viewing option for their offspring. Then again, it can’t be any more detrimental to young minds than something like The Emoji Movie, in which characters named Poop and Poop Jr. run around chanting, “We’re number two!” There is a split-second shot of an anthropomorphic alligator, but that’s about it for flights of fancy in In This Corner of the World. The story centers on Suzu (voiced by Rena Nounen), an artist and selfdescribed daydreamer who, at the age of 18, marries a young man named Shusaku (Yoshimasa Hosoya) and moves from her home in Hiroshima to his family’s residence in nearby Kure. She more than pulls her weight with the other members of the household, and she particularly bonds with her niece Harumi (Natsuki Inaba). But the war, which initially seems so far away, soon takes its toll in the form of limited food rations and strafing American airplanes. All the while, dates occasionally pop up on the screen to show that we’re inexorably moving closer and closer to August 6, 1945. Although there are a few moments of Suzu admiring her nation’s weapons of mass destruction (particularly a pair of imposing battleships), In this Corner of the World keeps nationalism on the back burner, preferring instead to examine the effects of war on ordinary citizens. If there are any politics in the picture, it’s of the personal sort, with Suzu doing her best to be accepted by her new husband and the rest of his family. Indeed, the first portion of the film, focusing more on domestic issues, doesn’t completely hint at the grimness that will take over during the second half. But it’s nevertheless a constant in the story, hiding in the margins before making its presence known as strikingly as a mushroom cloud in the sky.

LOGAN LUCKY

OO A particularly priceless moment in cinema can be found in 1982’s 48 Hrs., when the street-smart crook played by Eddie Murphy (in his film debut, no less) saunters into a bar filled with racist rednecks and barks, “I’ve never seen so many backwards-ass country fucks in my life!” While that quip can be applied to many real-world instances (Trump rallies, for example), it gets reclaimed for the screen

by Logan Lucky, Steven Soderbergh’s first film as director since his ersatz retirement following 2013’s Behind the Candelabra. Logan Lucky is a movie filled with so many Southern-fried yahoos, it makes the characters in Smokey and the Bandit look as cultured as those in Howards End by comparison. Soderbergh, who was responsible for those largely middling Ocean’s flicks starring George Clooney and Brad Pitt, returns

to the scene of the same type of crime with his latest effort, which similarly follows the planning and execution of a major heist. In this case, the seemingly impossible robbery is being attempted by a band of downand-outers, among them siblings Jimmy, Clyde and Mellie Logan (Channing Tatum, Adam Driver and Riley Keough) and a loopy con named Joe Bang (Daniel Craig). Their target? The NASCAR coffers at Charlotte Motor Speedway, filled to

the brim during the Coca-Cola 600 over Memorial Day Weekend. Southerners who lamented that 1990’s Days of Thunder transposed the word “Charlotte” over an image of a good ol’ boy drinking out of a Mason jar while standing in front of a dilapidated barn will be further disheartened with the representation here. There are precious few characters who don’t look and sound like they just got back from molesting Ned Beatty

alongside the Georgia river—one of the few exceptions is an arrogant British race car driver played unconvincingly by Seth MacFarlane. The script by Rebecca Blunt (suspected by many to be a pseudonym for Soderbergh, who often employs fake names while working in other capacities on his films) veers between treating these characters with care and treating them with condescension. Indeed, Logan Lucky isn’t that much different from last year’s Masterminds, which suffered horrible reviews while this one is being overpraised in some circles. Honestly, the difference between the pair isn’t that pronounced, although this one definitely comes out on top thanks to a solid second half (due to some satisfying plot intricacies) and some sharper performances. Tatum is especially fun to watch as Jimmy Logan, although it’s Craig who most holds our attention as the live-wire Joe Bang. I won’t reveal whether the outlaws successfully pull off the heist, but let it be known that Craig easily steals the film.

THE DARK TOWER

32

O The long-in-the-making movie The Dark Tower runs 95 minutes yet is based on the Stephen King book series that ran over the course of eight novels. Such a condensation may not be quite as vexing as attempting to place all of Shakespeare’s texts onto a single Post-it note, but it nevertheless ranks as an exercise in futility. Despite the material’s links to other King staples, the movie has less in common with the prolific author’s output and more in common with such Young Adult adaptations as the Divergent and Percy Jackson series. Certainly, there are nods here and there to the King oeuvre (It, 1408, The Shining), but stripped of dramatic heft, the film mainly plays like the YA-sanctioned adventures of a young boy who gets to hang out with a gunslinger and fight a wicked sorcerer. The boy is Jake Chambers (Tom Taylor), who suffers from recurring dreams involving an imposing tower. The gunslinger is Roland Deschain (Idris Elba), the last in a long line of peacekeepers sworn to protect the title edifice. And the sorcerer is the Man in Black, a vile being seeking to destroy the Tower and thereby unleash all manner of otherworldly evildoers. The Man in Black is played by Matthew McConaughey, who seems to have based his performance on the most obnoxious car salesman he’s ever met. The casting of Elba makes more sense than that of his surfer dude co-star, but while he brings the proper degree of gravitas to his role, the thinness of the screenplay means that there’s little depth to his characterization. The entire film suffers

from a similar measure of surface sheen. Potentially interesting players come and go, other worlds and dimensions are visited, and characters engage in weighty proclamations like “He who aims with his hand has forgotten the face of his father,” “He has the shine!” and “The gun is good; the penis is evil” (wait, that one’s from Zardoz; never mind). But by barreling through the story at Mach speed, nothing is allowed to marinate and deepen. What’s left, then, is a shallow fantasy in which most of the unimaginative action sequences consist of little more than Roland shooting his pistols at various villains.

ATOMIC BLONDE

OOO The logical companion piece to the summer hit Baby Driver, Atomic Blonde is another movie largely defined by its cool-as-ice characters, its action-packed set-pieces, and its awesome mixtape of classic tunes readily available for iTunes download. But whereas Baby Driver (the better picture, though not by much) loses some tread during its final act, this adaptation of the graphic novel The Coldest City feigns in the opposite direction, getting off to a rocky start before blossoming into something

Mad Max: Fury Road, is equally as kick-ass There’s a lengthy fight sequence in this here—she’s Lorraine Broughton, an MI6 picture that’s among the best of recent agent operating in Berlin at the end of the times – filmed in one uninterrupted take, Cold War.

As noted, the soundtrack is superb, She’s ordered by her MI6 superiors even if it isn’t always as hardwired into (Toby Jones and James Faulkner) to hook the action as cleverly as the songs in Baby up with the department’s agent in Berlin, Driver. For instance, After the Fall’s “Der a live wire named David Percival (James Komissar” figures prominently in one McAvoy), but she also comes into contact scene, the sole reason apparently being with a gruff CIA agent (John Goodman), a that—whaddaya know!—the song title is in mysterious woman (Sofia Boutella) who’s German and this movie is set in Germany. been following her, and assorted other Then again, the film does open with one players in the spy game. brilliant David Bowie song—“Cat People Atomic Blonde is the sort of movie in (Putting Out Fire)”—and closes with which nothing is as it seems, as scripter another brilliant Bowie tune (not telling), Kurt Johnstad serves up a full menu of so let’s not be too harsh on Leitch for turndouble-crosses, triple-crosses, false identi- ing to his iPod to score the picture. ties, and startling character revelations.

FREE WILL ASTROLOGY ARIES (March 21-April 19)

Two animals are pictured prominently on Australia’s coat of arms: the kangaroo and the large flightless bird known as the emu. One of the reasons they were chosen is that both creatures rarely walk backward. They move forward or not at all. Australia’s founders wanted this to symbolize the nation’s pledge to never look back, to remain focused on advancing toward the future. The coming weeks will be a favorable time for you to make a similar commitment, Aries. Is there a new symbol you might adopt to inspire your intention?

TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

*The Simpsons* is an animated sitcom that will soon begin its 29th consecutive year on TV. During its run, it has told over 600 stories. The creators of another animated sitcom, *South Park,* once did an episode entitled “Simpsons Already Did It,” which referenced their feelings that it was hard to come up with new tales because their rival had already used so many good ones. I bring this up, Taurus, because I suspect your life story will soon be spinning out novel plots that have never before been seen, not even on *The Simpsons* or *South Park.* You could and should be the Best Storyteller of the Month.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

44

Love won’t exactly be free in the coming weeks, but there should be some good deals. And I’m not referring to risky black-market stuff obtained in back alleys, either. I mean straightforward liaisons and intriguing intimacy at a reasonable cost. So if you’re comfortably mated, I suggest you invest in a campaign to bring more comedy and adventure into your collaborative efforts. If you’re single, wipe that love-starved look off your face and do some exuberant window-shopping. If you’re neither comfortably mated nor single, money may temporarily be able to buy you a bit more happiness.

CANCER (June 21-July 22)

The current state of your fate reminds me of the sweet confusion alluded to in Octa-

vio Paz’s poem “Between Going and Staying”: “All is visible and elusive, all is near and can’t be touched.” For another clue to the raw truth of your life right now, I’ll quote the poet William Wordsworth. He spoke of “fleeting moods of shadowy exultation.” Is the aura described by Paz and Wordsworth a problem that you should try to fix? Is it detrimental to your heroic quest? I don’t think do. Just the opposite, really: I hope you can hang out for a while in this pregnant mystery -- between the yes and the no, between the dark and the light, between the dream and the reality. It will help you learn what you’ve been too restless to tune in to in the past.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

The imminent future will be a favorable time for refurbished models and revived originals. They are likely to be more fun and interesting the second time around. I suspect that this will also be an auspicious phase for substitutes and alternatives. They may even turn out to be better than the so-called real things they replace. So be artful in formulating Plan B and Plan C, Leo. Switching over to backups may ultimately bring out more of the best in you and whisk you toward your ultimate goal in unexpected ways.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

In the coming weeks, you might want to read the last few pages of a book before you decide to actually dive in and devour the whole thing. I also suggest you take what I just said as a useful metaphor to apply in other areas. In general, it might be wise to surmise the probable outcomes of games, adventures, and experiments before you get totally involved. Try this fun exercise: Imagine you are a psychic prophet as you evaluate the long-range prospects of any influences that are vying to play a role in your future.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

dure the pain and confusion if I could get a tangible sense of the future happiness that my pain and confusion are preparing me for. Can you offer me any free advice? —Lost Libra.” Dear Libra: The pain and confusion come from the dying of the old ways. They need to die a bit more before the new direction will reveal itself clearly. I predict that will happen soon—no later than October 1.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Welcome to “Compose Your Own Oracle,” a special edition of Free Will Astrology. Departing from tradition, I’m temporarily stepping aside so you can have the freedom to write the exact horoscope you want. Normally, you might be in danger of falling victim to presumptuous arrogance if you imagined you could wield complete control over how your destiny unfolds. But in the days ahead, that rule won’t be as unyielding, because cosmic forces will be giving you more slack than usual. Fate and karma, which frequently impel you to act according to patterns that were set in place long ago, are giving you at least a partial respite. To get the maximum benefit out of “Compose Your Own Oracle,” identify three plot developments you’d like to weave into a self-fulfilling prophecy for your immediate future. Then start weaving.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Almost two-thirds of us confess that if we are alone, we might sip milk directly from the carton rather than first pouring it into a glass. Fourteen percent of us have used milk as part of our sexual activities. One out of every five of us admit that we have “borrowed” someone else’s milk from the fridge at work. Most shockingly, four percent of us brag that we have blown milk out our noses on purpose. I expect that in the next two weeks, you Sagittarians will exceed all these norms. Not just because you’ll be in the mood to engage in mischievous experiments and playful adventures with milk, but because you’re likely to have a loosey-goosey relationship with almost everything.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

The coming weeks will an excellent time for you to raise funds in support of political prisoners, or to volunteer at a soup kitchen, or to donate blood at a blood bank. In fact, any charitable service you perform for people you don’t know will be excellent for your physical and mental health. You can also generate vivid blessings for yourself by being extra thoughtful, kind, and generous toward people you care for. You’re in a phase of your astrological cycle when unselfish acts will yield maximum selfish benefits.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

In his novel *The Jungle,* muckraker Upton Sinclair (1878-1968) exposed the abominable hygiene and working conditions of the meat-packing industry. The uproar that followed led to corrective legislation by the U.S. Congress. Sinclair remained devoted to serving the public good throughout his career. He liked to say that the term “social justice” was inscribed on his heart. Drawing from his inspiration, Aquarius, I suggest you decide what your soul’s main motto is -- and imagine that it is written on your heart. Now is a perfect moment time to clarify your life’s purpose, and intensify your commitment to it; to devote even more practical, tender zeal to fulfilling the reason you were born.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

You know that “patch of bothersome weeds” growing right in the middle of your life? Is it really a patch of bothersome weeds? Or is it perhaps a plot of cultivated blooms that once pleased you but has now turned into a puzzling irrelevancy? Or how about this possibility: Is it a chunk of languishing beauty that might flourish and please you again if it were cared for better? Those are excellent questions for you to pose in the coming days, Pisces. According to my interpretation of the astrological omens, it’s time for you to decide on the future of this quizzical presence.
