OUR 1494TH ISSUE 10.12.17 Standing on the tee box, I survey the fairway, a slight downhill dogleg left. It’s a par four, but it’s not a long hole, especially for me. Birdie is a possibility if I can put the ball on the short grass, and believe me, that I can do. The morning sun is rising over the hills to the east. It’s going to be a good day. I can feel it. I pull out my driver, insert a tee into the soft ground, and place my brand-new Titleist Pro V1 atop it. I step back and choose my line, just to the right of the first bunker, about 200 yards out. I take a couple of smooth practice swings, getting the feel, finding my tempo. As I address the ball, I’m feeling confident, like I own this course. I swing through the ball and feel it connect with the center of my clubhead. I watch as the little white ball — my ball — soars majestically into the morning air, splitting the fairway, just as I’d planned. I’m a good golfer, believe me. In fact, many people say I’m the greatest golfer to ever be president. And that’s not by accident. It’s because I practice. I work at this game, that I can tell you. I never let more than a few days pass without getting out and playing a couple of rounds. Because that’s how you get good, folks. Not just sitting around the office and hoping you get better. You get out here and you put in the work. And that’s why it makes me so mad when people don’t appreciate the job I’m doing for America. I need this time on the course to clear my head from all the negativity and the haters. Like that uppity little mayor in Puerto Rico. Did you see what I tweeted yesterday after I rolled in that seven-foot par putt on number 11? “Nobody could have done what I’ve done for #PuertoRico with so little appreciation. So much work!” Precisely. The truth is, out here is where I think of all my good words — like “Rocket Man.” I thought that one up at Bedminster a couple weeks ago, right after that stupid double bogey that never would have happened if I hadn’t been thinking about North Korea. And out here on one of my courses is where I came up with the word “fake,” which not many people had heard of until I thought of it. And fake news is everywhere, believe me. Just this week, Fake NBC reported that Rex Tillerman called me a “f—king moron.” Folks, it never happened, that I can tell you. If you believe that happened, then you believe the American people would elect a moron as president, and what does that say about your patriotism and your faith in our country, huh? Ever think about that? And now, I’m having to deal with this bad little hombre from Tennessee, “Tiny Bomb” Corker. I’ve played golf with this guy, and let me tell you, he sucks. Can’t hit it out of his shadow, and he’s got a pretty small shadow, believe me. All through the round, I kept telling him he had a good short game, you know, because that’s a pretty good joke, right? Son of a bitch never cracked a smile. N E WS & O P I N I O N Now he’s saying Tillerman and THE FLY-BY - 4 Mattis and Kelly are the only people NY TIMES CROSSWORD - 5 keeping the country from chaos. And POLITICS - 7 then he has the nerve to say the White EDITORIAL - 8 House is an “adult daycare center.” VIEWPOINT - 9 Let me tell you, it’s Corker who’s the COVER - “FALL IN LOVE” BY ANDREA FENISE - 10 moron, not me. Think about it: If WE RECOMMEND - 16 the country’s in such bad shape that MUSIC - 18 the White House is in chaos and the LOCAL BEAT - 19 president needs adult daycare, why are AFTER DARK - 20 General Kelly and General Mattis (great CALENDAR OF EVENTS - 28 generals, by the way, the best) always THEATER - 36 urging me to go play golf?

RIP BANANA NOSE Last week Memphis wrestling fans said goodbye to Lance Russell, a longtime program manager for WHBQ-TV and one of the most beloved wrestling commentators in the sport’s long, weird history. Known to heel wrestlers as “Ol’ Banana Nose,” Russell was a serious ring announcer working the world’s least serious rings. He played straight man to a host of colorful, singlet-wearing characters like Jackie Fargo, Tojo Yamamoto, King Jerry Lawler, and comedian and performance artist Andy Kaufman. NEVERENDING ELVIS A shotgun shack once occupied by Elvis’ grandparents goes up for auction next month. Elvis fans and shack-life enthusiasts will note, this shack is much like Elvis’ birth shack and hand-constructed by Elvis’ dad Vernon and his uncle Vester. By Chris Davis.

SOURCES: BROOKS CONSIDERS FIRE HOUSE Leaders of the Memphis Brooks Museum of Art are considering a move to a new location close to the corner of Union and Front, according to several sources. No formal vote on the move has been taken yet by Brooks board members. However, sources told the Flyer last week that the plan before them now would involve relocating the art museum to sites now occupied by Memphis Fire Station #5 at 66 South Front and, possibly, an adjacent parking garage at Union and Monroe. It is not clear whether or not the plan would involve both buildings. It’s also not clear whether or not either of the buildings would be razed for the project. Emily Ballew Neff, executive director at the Brooks, did not confirm nor deny the information in a statement. “As we’ve stated since the beginning of this process, we are exploring options for the Brooks Museum’s future,” she said. “A location on the historic riverfront is certainly an exciting potential option for us to consider. We will continue to work closely with our board, our members and other supporters, and our partners at the city of Memphis as we move towards a final decision.” PANEL QUESTIONS STATUES Follow the law? Or take them down and ask forgiveness later? A panel mulled these questions about the city’s Confederate statues last week at an event at the University of Memphis law school. Activist Tami Sawyer said the laws keeping the statues in place are unjust. She wondered why city leaders didn’t have the courage to go around the laws and “do what’s right.” “We can be radical, we can take them down, and we can fight in court, but I think the courts will look down on us if we don’t follow process,” said Allan Wade, attorney to the Memphis City Council. Mayor Jim Strickland will travel to Athens, Tennessee

Friday to urge the Tennessee Historical Commission to vote on the city’s waiver to remove a statue of KKK founder Nathan Bedford Forrest. An administration official said the city will pursue the issue all the way to the Supreme Court if necessary. GROWTH MODE AT U OF M The University of Memphis will construct a land bridge, amphitheater, and parking garage by the end of the year as a part of its $66 million Master Campus Plan. Construction of the Alumni Mall Amphitheater, land bridge over Southern, and five-story parking garage will total around $36 million. The new Center for Health & Wellness is also on tap and will cost about $30 million. AMAZON LURE TOTALS $60M Last week, the Memphis City Council offered Amazon $50 million and a pledge of $10 million to transportation and worker training if the retail giant would locate its second headquarters here.

CITY REPORTER B y To b y S e l l s

Health experts meet in Memphis to discuss ending the H.I.V. epidemic.

Experts from across the country are convening in Memphis this week to talk about efforts to end the H.I.V./AIDS epidemic in Tennessee. It’s a meeting of the National Association of State and Territorial AIDS Directors (NASTAD), a Washington, D.C.-based nonprofit that aims to end the overlapping epidemics of H.I.V., viral hepatitis, and related conditions. The group will strategize, plan, and discuss Tennessee’s work to reverse the H.I.V./AIDS and hepatitis epidemics here through strengthening governmental public health. The 23 board members will touch on topics like modernizing Tennessee’s H.I.V. and hepatitis laws and syringe-access services. They’ll also review H.I.V. care models, like the Ryan White H.I.V./AIDS program, a comprehensive treatment that provides primary medical care and support services to the uninsured. As a part of the program, a campaign was recently launched in Shelby County to increase access to preexposure prophylaxis, an H.I.V. prevention drug. The group’s Unite to End the Epidemics challenge calls on health departments to create or improve current H.I.V. and hepatitis programs and policies that work to end the epidemics. For this, they point to the Ryan White program, which is especially effective in ethnic communities and groups disproportionately impacted by the epidemic, such as gay men and transgender women. “It calls on health departments to stop allowing

the imperfect nature of our systems to divide us and unite to further the necessary work to put in place program and policy building blocks needed to implement impactful H.I.V. and hepatitis prevention and care programs,” chair of NASTAD’s board Shanell McGoy said when the challenge first launched in May. McGoy, also the director of the Tennessee Department of Health’s H.I.V./STD program, said the campaign not only focuses on providing access to programs and resources for those diagnosed with H.I.V./AIDS, but also on ensuring there are opportunities for “the most vulnerable among us” to thrive and live well. The South is the most vulnerable region in the country, according the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. It suffers from a higher rate of H.I.V. diagnoses than any other U.S. region, and more than half of those diagnosed with the virus are African American. In Tennessee, the lifetime risk of being diagnosed with H.I.V. is one in every 103 people — a slightly higher risk than to the west in Arkansas, where

it’s one in 159 people, but lower than just south in Mississippi where one in 85 individuals are diagnosed with the virus in their lifetime. The Memphis metro area however had the eighthhighest H.I.V. diagnosis rate and number of people living with the disease in the country last year. Murray Penner, executive director of NASTAD, said that’s the reason he wanted this year’s NASTAD board meeting to be in Memphis. “Nearly 2,000 people here are living with H.I.V. and don’t know it,” Penner said. “I truly believe we’re on the cusp of ending H.I.V. and AIDS, but to get there we have to have an all-hands-on-deck approach to educating the public, eliminating societal taboos, and providing access to comprehensive health care.”

POLITICS By Jackson Baker

Filling in the Blanks Harris jumps into county mayor’s race; Blackburn declares for Corker’s seat; other big names contemplate a race. If Rip Van Winkle happened to be not a fictional character from a previous century but a current resident of Shelby County, Tennessee, he would not have had to nod off for a years to wake up to a drastically changed landscape. If he’d just blinked his eyes about midway through last week, he might have missed significant doings in the race for Shelby County mayor and that for United States senator. The first major change in the projected 2018 political lineup occurred on Wednesday with the carefully stage-managed entry into the county mayor’s race of Lee Harris, a Democratic state senator and former Memphis City Council member whose ambitions to keep on moving up in the political hierarchy were clearly signaled back in 2016 when he flirted with the idea of challenging 9th District Congressman Steve Cohen in that year’s Democratic primary but thought better of it. As the senator confided in a recent conversation, “I can serve anywhere” — the choice of a particular political office being something of a pure variable. Harris’ interests in running for county mayor had been obvious for most of the current year but were screened somewhat by an elaborate Alphonse-Gaston scenario in which he appeared to be deliberating

along with close friend and University of Memphis law faculty colleague Steve Mulroy, a former county commissioner and a mayoral candidate in 2014, as to which of them would actually make the 2018 race. The veil was dropped abruptly on Wednesday via an interview in The Commercial Appeal, a venue choice made after scouting out the possible advantages of announcing in other media. Harris has a reputation as a progressive but one adept at working across the aisle, a fact indicated by his partnership with Republican lawmakers on criminal justice issues and with GOP state Senator Brian Kelsey in seeking to safeguard the Memphis Sand aquifer. As of now, Harris would appear to be the likely Democratic nominee against the winner of the threeway Republican mayoral primary between County Commissioner Terry Roland, County Trustee David Lenoir, and Juvenile Court Clerk Joy Touliatos. But two other eminences with credentials both with Shelby County Democrats and with the civic and social universe at large are still meditating on a possible mayoral entry. Bank of Bartlett president Harold Byrd holds numerous political IOUs as a political donor and broker, a holdover following from his past as a Democratic state representative and two previous nearruns for mayor, and ample access to financial support. Equally well-positioned is Shea Flinn, currently

an influential Memphis Chamber of Commerce vice president and a former progressive spark-plug on the city council. Flinn’s access to funding, too, would be considerable, and, in a political environment not overstocked with charisma, he has more than his share. Either one of these figures, running in the Democratic primary or even as an independent, would have a dramatic effect on the outcome. The other major development last week was in the race for the seat being vacated by Republican U.S. Senator Bob Corker, whose decision not to seek reelection did not prevent him from continuing to make political waves. (See Editorial, p. 8) To no one’s surprise, 7th District U.S. Representative Marsha Blackburn, an arch-conservative, quickly announced as a GOP candidate, though she withheld her announcement until Governor Bill Haslam, a favorite of moderate Republicans, publicly opted out. Another conservative GOP prospect is former 8th District Congressman Stephen Fincher. And the party’s centrist wing still hopes to convince Memphis philanthropist and longtime party eminence Brad Martin to make the race. The state’s Democrats may end up fielding a serious candidate, as well. Chattanooga Mayor Andy Berke is seriously contemplating a Senate race, while Nashville lawyer and Iraq war vet James Mackler is already in the field.

A Real Corker There are many things that Americans expect of the men and women they send to the United States Senate as spokespersons for the interests of their states and their nation. The six-year term extended under the Constitution

October 12-18, 2017

to senators is elongated in comparison to the two-year terms served by members of the House, and that’s for a very good reason. Just as the word “senator” was originally used in Republican Rome to denote those privileged few who were charged with the serious duty of deliberating on affairs of state and high purpose, so does the six-year term, in theory at least, allow members of the U.S. Senate to discharge a similar function. It was this function that Senator John McCain of Arizona had in mind during debate on an administrationbacked measure to “repeal-and-replace” the Affordable Care Act when McCain reminded his colleagues: 1) that the subject was important enough to handle via bipartisan consideration in “regular order” (as against rushing through a party-line vote in order to assist President Donald Trump in his obsession with taking down any and all achievements of Trump’s predecessor, Barack Obama) and 2) that “we are his [Trump’s] equal.” Historically, Tennessee’s senators, whether Democratic or Republican, have acted according to this Constitutional formula. You don’t have to be too long-oftooth to remember the words of special Watergate Committee co-chair Howard Baker regarding the titular head of his party, Richard Nixon: “What did the president know, and when did he know it?” Baker asked. And, eventually, we found out. Similarly, Democratic Senator Albert Gore, father and namesake of Senator and Vice President Al Gore, who joined with a conscientious band

of concerned senators to investigate and later oppose the ill-advised American strategy in Vietnam of Democratic President Lyndon Johnson Into this honor roll of Tennessee senators who have done their duty, not only to their states, but to their nation and to the Constitution, we can now add the name of Bob Corker, the Tennessee Republican who has come as close as any public official now serving to illuminate the grave peril threatening the nation in the continuation of Donald Trump’s unhinged regime. Several weeks ago, Corker, speaking to Tennessee reporters, told it straight: “The president has not yet been able to demonstrate the stability nor some of the competence that he needs to demonstrate in order to be successful.” That was, as it turned out, to say the least. In recent days Corker has embroidered on these remarks, and on a national stage. “He concerns me. He would have to concern anyone who cares about our nation,” he said. “[It’s] like he’s doing The Apprentice or something.” And, most damning: “Trump may be setting the U.S. on the path to World War III.” What makes these observations even more potent is that Corker has been among the few members of Congress to have heretofore enjoyed a truly personal relationship with the president as a golf and conversation partner. We owe the senator a debt of gratitude for his candor and for the example he has set for the rest of his colleagues, regardless of party.

Why Doesn’t She Leave? Dealing with the epidemic of domestic violence.

Faith: When I say faith, I’m not necessarily talking about religion, but it’s definitely a subject worth mentioning, because we still have too many churches that refuse to discuss or address the problem of domestic violence. There’s also the issue of culture. Based on one’s culture or religious beliefs, abuse may be viewed differently and therefore addressed differently. The faith I speak of has more to do with people of influence. How many times have we seen reports of domestic violence where the accused abuser is a politician, sports figure, or in law enforcement? Over the years, I have spoken to many individuals who have lost faith in the judicial system because they don’t feel they will be supported or believed. In my former life in another state, I was told by law enforcement there was nothing they could do until my abuser

IN TUNICA

had actually assaulted me. It didn’t matter that I was literally running away from him, thinking when I made it to the steps of the police station, I would be safe. In that moment, I lost faith in the system.

Many victims of abuse simply cannot afford to leave their abuser because they don’t have the resources to do so. Finances dictate much of what an individual can do and when. Funding: Housing continues to be a huge barrier for those who desire to leave an abusive relationship. It is limited, and priority is given to those who meet the criteria of imminent danger — meaning you have to be in immediate, serious risk of danger. Approximately 94 to 98 percent of all individuals affected by domestic violence are also affected by some form of financial abuse. Many victims of abuse simply cannot afford to leave their abuser because they don’t have the resources to do so. As much as we’d like to think leaving is as simple as walking out of a door, finances dictate much of what an individual can do and when. As a community, there are ways to positively address each of these three components. It starts with acknowledging domestic violence is more than just physical and understanding the not-so-obvious signs. Keep in mind there are men who are victims of abuse, and their voices matter as well. Be intentional about offering support to those who are going through abuse and encourage them to seek help. There are resources available. Encourage them to trust the judicial system. While it may have flaws, it is still a viable process. Safety planning, establishing and maintaining a positive support system, participating in job readiness programs, or exploring entrepreneurial options are additional options. As a community, we need to explore many different ways to strategically help those who are being traumatized by domestic violence and remove the consistent barriers keeping them from living holistically happier and healthier lives. Joyce Kyles is executive director of Walking Into A New Life, Inc., and a speaker, author, and survivor of domestic violence and sexual assault.

Fear: How often have we directly or indirectly judged family members or friends for their decision to stay in an abusive relationship? Guilt, shame, embarrassment, and a sense of failure are all real and legitimate emotions for someone dealing with abuse. There may be a fear of retaliation from the abuser. It is a documented fact that the risk of harm is increased once a victim leaves her abuser. He/she may have threatened to hurt or kill the victim, a family member, a pet, or even a child. Abuse is about power and control. It starts with controlling the abused person’s mind. Once the mind has been manipulated, controlling one’s surroundings becomes significantly easier.

NEWS & OPINION

October is nationally recognized as Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Memphis is experiencing an eightpercent spike in domestic violence this year. In addition, Tennessee now ranks fourth in the nation for the number of men killing women. Memphis’ homicide rate is on the rise. The Memphis Police Department cites the two biggest reasons for local homicides as gang violence and domestic violence. Nearly 50 percent of all calls made to the police department are related to domestic violence. With all of these alarming statistics, many continue to ask victims of abuse the infamous question: Why don’t you leave? My years of personal and professional experience — and asking victims/ survivors this question — have led me to three answers: Fear. Faith. Funding.

Taco Love

By Chris Davis

It’s a scientific fact that tacos are the world’s most efficient and delicious food delivery system. Don’t take my word for it, ask Megan Rubenstein, who isn’t actually a taco scientist but is a co-organizer of the Lady Parts Justice Taco Festival. “We added tacos to our event last year,” she says, reflecting on previous, taco-free parties. “Let me tell you, if you add tacos to anything — wow! “And, of course, the implicit joke about tacos and lady parts is there,” she adds without further explanation. “And it’s amusing.” Rubenstein’s New York-based charity is unusual. Lady Parts Justice was founded by Daily Show co-creator Lizz Winstead and has been alternately described as “a comedy war room that produces hilarious strategic and educational content on issues around reproductive care and abortion” and “a cabal of comics and writers exposing creeps.” Ladypartsjustice.com features an interactive 50-state map, and clicking on any state takes you to a page addressing that state’s bad reproductive rights legislation and funny videos created to address it. “You know, Daily Show-type stuff,” Rubenstein says. For this year’s Lady Parts Taco Festival, the Hi-Tone will serve up barbecue tacos and the JoyRide and El Mariachi trucks will offer a variety of traditional, tortilla-based delights. Katrina Coleman — recently voted best comic in Memphis by Memphis Flyer readers — made it known that the event would be inclusive. “All tacos, be they beef, pork, vegetarian, or a sandwich, are welcomed as taco-identifying,” she says. In addition to comedy and tacos, there will be a drag show, music by HEELS, wanted posters with pictures of House District 64’s anti-abortion crusader Sheila Butt, and raffles. Those who can’t afford raffle tickets can earn them by volunteering for Planned Parenthood, Choices, and other partnering organizations.

Requi Emma

By Chris Davis

Did you hear the one about the naked ghost? Saw his reflection and was scared sheetless. (Rimshot). That was an awful joke, but it might be a whole lot funnier after a cocktail or three in a dark nightclub where the music bumps and sparkling showgirls grind on stage. This Saturday night at RockHouse Live (in rockin’ Raleigh), the cast of Sock It to Me Burlesque’s Creepshow Peepshow presents a Halloween spectacular honoring zombie film pioneer George Romero and the great tradition of horror comics. This Peepshow’s routines aren’t all Romero-inspired. Sock It to Me co-founder, Lady Doo Moi and DJ Justin Hand are planning an homage to John Carpenter’s Halloween franchise. They’ll forego the fim’s iconic soundtrack and mix bits of the Talking Heads’ “Psycho Killer” with Britney Spears singing “Oh Baby.” “I’m going to be dressed like Michael Myers,” Doo Moi says. “And I’m going to have a little Britney Spears pop out and kill him.” In addition to all the rhinestones and feathers that usually accompany a burlesque show, the Creepshow Peepshow tosses in a reasonable amount of stage blood. “And red glitter,” Doo Moi adds. Hosted by Doo Moi’s burlesque partner Chloë du Bois and boy-lesque entertainer Papa Chubb, this strippy spookshow showcases the talents of performers like Requi Emma, Puss Powerbottom, Twen Peeks, and Coco Rose. Horror-themed music can also be expected from the opening band, Terry Prince & the Principles. CREEPSHOW PEEPSHOW AT ROCKHOUSE LIVE, SATURDAY, OCTOBER 14TH, 9 P.M.-11 P.M. 386-7222, $8-$20

James Hunter

Talking Junior Wells and the roots of soul.

I

f you’re new to the James Hunter Six, you’re in for a treat this Saturday. The group is perhaps England’s best-kept secret here in the South, though they’re Grammy nominees whose last record was with the venerable U.S.-based Daptone Records. Like most Daptone acts, Hunter’s group has learned the lessons of classic soul well, with a taut, groovy sound anchored in ’60’s R&B that matches the wry wit of his lyrics and heartfelt catch in his voice. Memphis Flyer: I reckon everyone in the band is quite a soul fan. James Hunter: It’s really a mixed lot. Their tastes are very eclectic. Each one of us is into different stuff. It kind of helps that each one brings his own vibe to the music. It stops it from getting too purist and train-spottery. You know? It can sometimes turn into a stuffed museum piece. It’s meant to be music that’s alive and evolving. When people start trying to maintain daft notions of purity and all that, it turns into something like the heritage industry. You kill something and stuff it in order to preserve it. I’ve never gone along with that.

October 12-18, 2017

Have you ever felt in danger of doing that? No, we’ve always been shy of that kind of thing. That’s why we’re always quite shy of terms like “retro” or “authenticity” and that kind of stuff. It’s not even genre bound. We just call it music, really. If we have to put it under a label, we call it soul, but that’s just for convenience really. As Peter Cook once said, “The Americans have their soul singers, and we English have our-soul singers [laughing].” (Note: this sounds hilarious if one knows about arses).

18

Well, the Beatles and bands in their wake did have a lot of soul … Yeah, it’s a bit of a tradition for us British to come empty your dustbin and present the contents back to you. It’s rather fitting you were “discovered” by Van Morrison. Yeah! I remember the day. He said, “Oh, there you are!” Is that an ongoing collaboration? It was ongoing, but then it stopped! He had this Blues and Soul Revue that I was in. So I met people like Junior Wells through him. … You know Junior Wells, he’s a bit out of your area. He’s one of them Northerners, isn’t he?

James Hunter Right, out of Chicago. I don’t suppose you talk to those Northern Herberts, do you? Well, I’m from Nebraska myself. Don’t worry, we can still be friends. I’m from Colchester; that’s nothing to boast about. Right, right, the one-time capital. It was! When it was still the Roman Empire. We still have the Roman influence. I mean, Christianity never took on in Colchester. But to our credit, we stopped throwing Christians to the lions in about 1948. Now, that’s progress. Well, it was the cruelty to animals people that put a stop to that. So who are some of your earliest heroes who inspired you to play? The 5 Royales and Johnny Guitar Watson, people like that. Lou Johnson. And as far as writers go, it was Leiber and Stoller, Smokey Robinson, Allen Toussaint. All the people who were really literary. Because you know, Ray Charles and James Brown wrote their own stuff, but you wouldn’t really call them writers in a literary sense. Whereas people like Sam Cooke were. Ray Charles and James Brown just wrote when they made a record. They were almost more producers, weren’t they? Speaking of Ray Charles, your lyrical approach and R&B feel reminds me of Percy Mayfield, who wrote for Charles. Are you familiar with his stuff ? Oh yeah! Yes, he was a helluva writer, wasn’t he? I mean, sort of morose … “Life Is Suicide” and things like that. I suppose I have more kinship with him. I mean the sweetness of Smokey Robinson kind of eludes me, as it were. As much as I admire it, I can’t duplicate it, but I’m much more … if you want a slightly more sour vision, I guess that’d be me. The James Hunter Six play the Buckman Performing Arts Center on Saturday, October 14th, at 8 p.m.

at Rhodes College and had formed a trio with violinist Max Huls and cellist Linda Minke. We needed a place to do our run-through the evening before our opening night debut.” It happened that William R. Eubanks, the noted interior designer, was glad to have the performance in his posh home, which included a nine-foot piano. “We played the concert to about 60 people,” Evans says. “It turned out to be a big hit, and people started calling Bill and saying, ‘When are you going to do it again?’ That’s when I realized this could be a concert series.” The first year of the series there were three concerts and they sold out right away. “The next year we increased to six,” she says. “The next year we increased to nine, and that’s what we’re doing now.” Julie Schap, the artistic director of Concerts International, says the collaboration for this Sunday’s concert came about quite naturally, although CI had first dibs on the Juilliard String Quartet for this season. Evans, at the Chamber Music Society, emailed Schap

saying she was a little disappointed because she’d hoped to book the quartet, especially since cellist Astrid Schween, a favorite guest at the Society’s concerts, was a new member of the group. Schap says she told Evans that Concerts International would be glad to let the Society have the quartet. But then the two of them talked it through some more and decided a collaboration would be even better. “We have a wonderful history together,” Schap says. “She coached me for my first big concert in Memphis.” (Schap, a vice president at Merrill Lynch, is also an accomplished pianist.) For Evans, this is an opportunity to have additional visibility for the Society and show more people what her passion is about. “I strive for variety,” she says. “And I strive for the musicians to be thrilled with what they’re playing. I try to get programs that represent the passions of the players — and then I get to pick a piece, too.” The Juilliard String Quartet’s performance at the Clark Opera Memphis

Center will be done in the round, Schap says, giving audience members an atypical view of the musicians — from front, side, and rear — as they perform. It won’t be quite like a concert in the intimate confines of someone’s home, although some of those performances have had their unusual moments. Evans recalls that one time the Blair String Quartet was performing at a home and the resident cat managed to find its way into the event after intermission. As the violist was sawing away, the cat jumped onto his lap to general amusement and consternation. But the player kept his cool, raising his bow and raising the viola to accommodate the curious feline. Sunday’s program: Beethoven’s Quartet in A Major, Op. 18, No. 5; Haydn’s Quartet in D Major, Op. 76, No. 5; and Beethoven’s String Quartet in E flat Major, Op. 127. Tickets are $50. Contact cimemphis.org or 527-3067. Cats not permitted.

m e m p h i s f l y e r. c o m

Almost every time the Memphis Chamber Music Society presents a concert, it’s in the landmark home of someone who volunteers to open their doors to a few dozen classical music lovers. It’s been that way for 29 years, but this Sunday, there will be that rare exception when the Juilliard String Quartet will perform Sunday, October 15th at 3 p.m. at the Clark Opera Memphis Center. You can attribute that to a collaboration between two presenters: the Society and the similarly chamber-oriented Concerts International (CI) organization. CI has been around longer — in its 45th year — and offers five or six concerts a year of ensembles with a global reputation, mostly at the University of Memphis. The Chamber Music Society presents nine concerts a year and typically draws from regional musicians who are often with the Memphis Symphony Orchestra or faculty at schools and colleges. Marsha Evans, founder and artistic director of the Chamber Music Society, says her organization came about somewhat by accident. “I was teaching

The Actor

Delvyn Brown takes Memphis theater to Poland.

October 12-18, 2017

T

36

he first time I ever spoke to actor Delvyn Brown he was wearing a red polo shirt and working the cash register at my neighborhood Family Dollar on Chelsea at Danny Thomas. I was a little starstruck, having seen him deliver several incredible stage performances, including a real powerhouse turn in Katori Hall’s Memphis-set drama Hurt Village, though Brown was almost unrecognizable outside the spotlight. Our chance encounter in the checkout line was another reminder that most of Memphis’ best, hardest-working actors are volunteers who only go to work in the theater after they’ve clocked out at the office. But Brown’s a committed, award-winning pro who has continued to progress and make opportunities for himself. Now all the work he’s put in, doing everything from independent film to children’s theater, is starting to show returns. He recently completed a TV pilot and, in November, Brown flies to Łódź, Poland, where, in conjunction with the Adam Mickiewicz Institute, Brown will star in Memphis playwright Levi Frazier’s biographical drama, For Our Freedom and Yours, a play about the renowned 19th-century African-American actor and activist Ira Aldridge, who left America to find fame in Europe. “I love being an actor,” Brown says, admitting it’s still a tough gig. “I love being able to step in and out of these characters and the journeys they send me on. I enjoy every minute of it, whether I’m playing a good guy, a bad guy, or historical guy. It is liberating. It is therapeutic. It’s easier to hit that stage or stand in front of that camera at times than it is to be me sometimes.” That’s a feeling Aldridge also knew too well. It’s wrong to say that Ira Aldridge was forgotten in America. But only because, in spite of some real success, he was never really known here in the first place. Aldridge, the first black actor to play Othello in London and for whom Howard University’s campus theater is named, was born a free man in 1807, but even in New York opportunities for black actors were limited. He was only just beginning to make a name for himself as a serious actor when the growing popularity of blackface clowning and minstrel shows made it next to impossible for a skilled

Shakespearean of color to find work in pre-Civil War America. So Aldridge left his native land for Liverpool, England and points beyond. There he was admired for notable performances in Othello, Richard III, Merchant of Venice, and other works, both classical and contemporary, including roles typically reserved for white actors. He would use his growing fame across the European continent to help foment Poland’s anti-slavery movement. Brown’s performance will mark the 150th anniversary of Aldridge’s death in Poland, where he was visiting on a seventh triumphant tour of the country, and booked into a venue called The Paradise. Frazier, who teaches theater and communication at Southwest Tennessee Community college, first discovered Aldridge standing outside the theater building at Howard University. The playwright, Delvyn whose Tribute to Richard Brown Wright was produced in Paris by invitation of the Sorbonne, knew he wanted to write something about the important but littleknown figure. Memphis in May’s 2014 tribute to Poland inspired Frazier to finally make his idea a reality. “When I write, I’ve always got someone’s voice in mind,” Frazier says. “Maybe it’s Samuel L. Jackson. Maybe it’s somebody else. For Ira Aldridge, the only person I ever had in mind was this bearded guy [Brown], who looks just like him.” “Levi asked if I had ever done a one-man show,” Brown recalls. “I hadn’t,” he adds, admitting he was a little intimidated by the idea of being alone on stage. “And I’d never heard of this person — this actor who achieved all these great heights doing basically the same things I do now. It’s almost a mirror image — making sacrifices, traveling from theater to theater. And now I have this opportunity to go overseas. I feel very connected to Ira Aldridge.” The For Our Freedom and Yours creative team has launched a Gofundme campaign and is currently fund-raising to help defray travel costs. If you’d like to help send a Memphis actor to Poland to play another American actor who did his part to transform the world, they can be found on the web at www.gofundme. com/from-memphis-to-poland.

Kristi & Kevin Bush

The Dish All that and avocado toast: Park + Cherry, Edge Alley.

JUSTIN FOX BURKS

Y

ou’ve probably tasted some of their inspired eats if you’ve been to any of the Dixon special events over the last several years. You know, their hopsicles like Wicked Apple made with Boston lager and hard apple cider and Lunar Lemon made with Blue Moon and hard lemonade. I’m speaking of wife and husband duo Kristi and Kevin Bush, of CFY Catering, and now you can taste their artful entrees full-time by paying a visit to the Dixon Gallery and Garden’s Park + Cherry. In July, the couple took over the year-old restaurant, which originally debuted under the charge Wally Joe, who left Park + Cherry to focus his efforts on Acre. “We were doing so many events here, it was almost our home away from home,” Kevin says. “Three-fourths of the people who work here, we have done their wedding, so it was a good fit for us and a good fit for them.” Their focus is on sandwiches and salads and fresh-made sweets as well as a full coffee menu. “We enjoy the science of cooking, but we also enjoy the art of cooking. That’s what attracted us here,” Kevin says. I’ve been on a sort of extended avocado toast tasting safari as of late, and while there is no winner, the Bush’s would be in the final running. They pickle their avocado and offer generous portions of it atop cream cheese and brioche finished off with greens ($4). You also can’t go wrong with the Ancient Grain Salad, with quinoa, farro, spinach, and grapes tossed in a white balsamic vinaigrette ($10). There’s the Pork & Cherry sandwich, with pork loin, cherry gastrique, chicharrones, and lemon aioli ($10), and the Prosciutto & Peach, with prosciutto de

Parma, gruyere, roasted peaches, and balsamic reduction on a homemade croissant ($8), and, like I said, a display case full of freshly made desserts. Desserts are their specialty. They started their own wholesale dessert business while Kristi was pregnant 10 years ago. They also started an herb garden at the garden, which they use daily, and serve Edge coffee. “Kristi and I always find inspiration through places other than food. Coming here is already inspiring walking through the galleries and gardens,” Kevin says. “It’s a great escape for Memphians.”

FOOD NEWS Park + Cherry by CFY, inside the Dixon Gallery and Gardens, 4339 Park, 761-5250, dixon.org. Hours 10 a.m.4 p.m., Tues.- Sat., Sun. 1-4 p.m. Speaking of Edge coffee, I lived in the Edge district several years back and prayed and prayed and prayed for a coffee shop there. I guess I had to move for it to manifest. You’re welcome. Edge Alley opened three months ago next door to High Cotton Brewing on Monroe, and it’s all you want in a coffee shop and then some. Actually it’s not even a coffee shop. “I like to say we’re a restaurant with a great coffee program,” says owner and chef Tim Barker. They offer direct-trade Thai coffee from the Chiang Rai region, which they roast in house and serve any number of ways. They also sell their roast to other restaurants in town (like the Dixon). “It’s rare and not easy to source,” Barker says. “We work with only one bean that works with all extraction methods.” I found the Americano nice and strong, or “with a bitter walnut taste,” according to Barker. The avocado toast is neck-andneck with Park + Cherry’s (Barker recommended the Bush’s avocado toast without my even asking). Edge Alley

serves all of their sandwiches and toasts on a biscuit-croissant hybrid. “It’s flaky layers that you can pull apart, and the layers are made of biscuit dough,” Barker says. The avocado toast is topped with an herb purée and an herb vinaigrette ($6.50). The menu changes daily and is what Barker calls “hyper-seasonal.” They have biscuit gnocchi, shrimp and grits, a big farmer’s plate, and coffee-style braised brisket. They also just launched a dinner menu upon getting their liquor license, so expect some different serving hours and check social media for their daily offerings. “Our food style is upscale comfort food, with an emphasis on simplicity and quality,” Barker says. “We stay away from the precious food movement and focus on recognizable dishes that are high-quality.” Also, leave some time for shopping. Edge Alley houses four micro-retail businesses from vintage clothing to interior design. “We wanted to invest in the neighborhood, so we tried to offer on some scale what the neighborhood is missing,” Barker says. Edge Alley, 600 Monroe, 425-2605, edge-alley.com. Hours Mon.-Fri. 7 a.m. to 8 p.m., Sat. 9:30 a.m. to 9 p.m., Sun. 9:30 a.m. to 7 p.m.

On hurricanes, Ponderosa Stomp, and iconic bars.

I

t takes a certain mindset to drive into New Orleans 48 hours before a hurricane is expected to make landfall. I left Memphis after work last Thursday, wavering a few times before gassing up and heading south. My destination was the 13th Ponderosa Stomp. Southbound traffic was nonexistent, and five hours later, I was parking my car on Carondelet Street, the lyrics to Louis Armstrong’s “Do You Know What It Means to Miss New Orleans” ricocheting through my head. I settled into the Ace Hotel’s Lobby Bar and ordered a Sazerac. I’m not normally a whisky drinker, but the complicated cocktail — allegedly America’s first, created by Antoine Peychaud in a French Quarter watering hole in 1838 — seemed appropriate. Spicy yet slightly sweet, it was the perfect sipping drink. I slept in on Friday and failed to make it to Frenchman Street to visit Old New Orleans Rum. The distillery, in business since 1995, produces the highest-rated rum on this continent. Their Cajun Spice Rum, which is steeped with cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, cloves, ginger, vanilla, chicory, and cayenne, provides my favorite base for a Dark and Stormy. God only knows why it’s not currently available on liquor store shelves in Memphis, but whenever I’m in New Orleans, I try to buy a few bottles to import into Tennessee. I stayed at the Ace, where I was due to moderate a panel discussion with Carla and Vaneese Thomas on Friday afternoon. Beforehand, I guzzled a Tanqueray and tonic, served in a go-cup at Josephine Estelle, Andy Ticer and Michael Hudman’s southernmost outpost. That evening, I walked around the block for drinks and dinner at Herbsaint, Donald Link’s restaurant, audaciously named for the aniseflavored liqueur, another New Orleans creation. I was meeting friends and I made sure to arrive early to enjoy a drink in the restaurant’s small but

elegant bar. Truth be told, due to the impending storm, the bar had more diners than drinkers, and within seconds of my arrival, I was sipping a cucumber-garnished Pimm’s Cup. Pimm’s was an excellent choice — it paid homage to my dining companions, guitarist and roots music concert organizer Rupert Orton, author and music critic Andy Perry, and Harry Grafton, a bona fide English duke and Orton’s partner in the annual Red Rooster Festival. All three hail from the United Kingdom, as does the original Pimm’s Cup. Yet it was a bartender at the Napoleon House, a New Orleans establishment located approximately one mile north of Herbsaint, who popularized the drink in the American South. Less than 10 hours later, I was headed back to Memphis. After dinner, I’d listened to — and danced to — one of the most eccentric musical line-ups ever assembled, including Roky Ace Hotel bar Erickson, Archie Bell, Roy Head, the Gories, and Doug Kershaw. But the second night of the Stomp was cancelled, and Mayor Mitch Landrieu had ordered a mandatory curfew for his Crescent City citizens. I was filled with regret as I drove, lamenting the dozen or more New Orleans watering holes I hadn’t visited: The Parasol Bar, hidden in the Irish Channel. The dimly lit Chart Room, one of the dive-iest places in the French Quarter. The Marigny’s Hi Ho Lounge, Kajun’s Pub, and Siberia, which lie a few hundred feet apart. D.B.A., the Saint, and Lafitte’s Blacksmith Shop. A trip to Martin Wine Cellar on Baronne, which has an excellent deli as well as a full-service liquor store. Fortunately, for everyone who lives in New Orleans and the rest of us who have had the pleasure of drinking there, Hurricane Nate decided to spare the city that care forgot. The Carousel Bar still turns; Sazeracs and Pimm’s Cups are still poured by bartenders who have seen — and heard — it all. I’ll head back soon, because, as Louis so perfectly put it, “I’m wishin’ I was there.”

FILM By Chris McCoy

New Life Awaits Blade Runner 2049 is a science-fiction masterpiece.

Harrison Ford in Blade Runner 2049

October 12-18, 2017

“I

42

can’t help thinking it’s a lot like making a sequel to Casablanca,” tweeted author William Gibson while on his way to see Blade Runner 2049. Gibson has the distinction of being one of the first in a long line of creators influenced by Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner. He was about a third of the way through his first draft of Neuromancer, the novel that invented cyberpunk and indelibly shaped our conception of the internet age, when he saw the film. Neuromancer and its sequels are set in a decaying urban world that looks a lot like the hellscape Scott created for Blade Runner. Casablanca has been described as having a screenplay made entirely of cliches — but the reason they’re cliches is because subsequent screenwriters stole them from Casablanca. Something like that happened with Blade Runner visually. “It affected the way people dressed,” Gibson said in a recent Paris Review interview. “It affected the way people decorated nightclubs. Architects started building office buildings you could tell they had seen in Blade Runner. It had an astonishingly broad aesthetic impact on the world.” Blade Runner was released in the summer of 1982, sci-fi’s cinema’s miracle year, in the company of classics like Poltergeist, The Thing, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, Tron, and The Dark Crystal. But Scott’s groundbreaking visual masterpiece had the misfortune to be released two weeks after Spielberg’s E.T.: The Extra Terrestrial. Two years earlier, Ronald Reagan had declared Morning in

America, and audiences wanted a feelgood story about a brave, healing alien more than a glimpse into the dystopian future. Even having Harrison Ford as the lead couldn’t put asses in seats, and Blade Runner flopped hard, almost destroying Scott’s career. But the legend grew over the decades, and so Scott, acting as executive producer, tapped Arrival director Denis Villeneuve to helm the long-awaited (or perhaps longdreaded) sequel, with screenwriter Hampton Fancher, who had adapted Philip K. Dick for the original film. Cinematographer Roger Deakins, who worked with Villeneuve on Sicario, was chosen to follow up one of the most visually influential films. Blade Runner’s opening shot identifies the setting as “Los Angles, 2019.” Blade Runner 2049 begins with an echo of those images: An eye, in extreme close up, and a flying car gliding over the ruins of California. In the ensuing three decades, the ecological crisis has only deepened. The only way to grow food is in vast, climate-controlled greenhouses. When the car lands in one lonely agricultural outpost, K (Ryan Gosling) emerges. Like Rick Deckard, he works for the LAPD hunting down artificial humans or replicants, who have gone rogue. Unlike Deckard, he is unambiguously a replicant himself. At the farm, he finds Sapper Morton (Dave Bautista), an android on the run who berates him for killing “his own kind.” He wouldn’t do that, Sapper says, if he had “seen the miracle.” K kills him anyway, but his words ring in his ears. What miracle? Those fearing a cookie cutter remake of the original will be pleased to discover that this is not the case.


FILM REVIEW By Chris McCoy Blade Runner 2049’s story builds logically on the original — a seemingly impossible task pulled off gracefully by Fancher and co-writer Michael Green. Resonances come not out of slavish fan service, but because both films are essentially noir detective stories. Some elements feel more like a sequel to Dick’s Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? than Scott’s film, such as K’s relationship with his holographic A.I. Joi (Ana de Armas), two simulated beings experiencing possibly real emotions. Gosling gives by far the best performance of his career; when his investigation leads him to find an aged Deckard living in the irradiated remains of Las Vegas, he goes toe to toe with Ford and a malfunctioning Elvis hologram in a bravado sequence that is worth the price of admission.

The only element of 2049 significantly inferior to the original film is the music. Vangelis’ improvisational synth score is as big a part of the Blade Runner mystique as John Williams’ soundtrack is for Star Wars. Hans Zimmer and Benjamin Wallfisch created a much more conventional, pounding, atonal soundscape. The film’s running time is hefty, but its pleasures are deep and satisfying. Villeneuve’s direction is brilliant, and if Deakins doesn’t win an Oscar for this cinematography, the award has no meaning. See it on the largest screen you can find.

THE LAST WORD by Randy Haspel

El Pendejo

m e m p h i s f l y e r. c o m

Here is my dream scenario: The Robert Mueller investigation finds that the Russians not only hacked individual polling places, but actually flipped the vote in certain precincts in Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania. It could happen. My wife, Melody, voted for Steve Cohen in the last election, and the voting machine registered a vote for his Republican opponent. She had to get a poll worker to help her correct the vote. If it happened with Cohen, it could happen with Trump. So, after finding that the actual vote count was tampered with electronically with the assistance of cyberwhiz Jared Kushner, Mueller discovers that Hillary actually won the presidency. Being in virgin territory, Congress flounders around for an answer and ultimately turns to the Supreme Court. Since the Court still has residual guilt from unconstitutionally handing the presidency to George W. Bush and setting the world aflame, this time they decide to do the right thing and nullify the fraudulent, dark-moneyed, treasonous, Putin-influenced election of Donny the Liar. Robert Mueller After the election results are overturned and Big Don and his family of grifters are ordered to pack up and get out of that dump called the White House, then the indictments start to fly. The RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act) statute, ironically signed into law by the criminal President Richard Nixon in 1970, is invoked, stating that the leaders of a criminal syndicate are culpable for the crimes they ordered others to do or assisted them in the doing. That should just about cover the Teflon Don, Mike Pence, Jeff Sessions, Steve Bannon, Mike Flynn, Stephen Miller, Jared and Ivanka Kushner, and Kellyanne Conway. A nice, supermax federal prison awaits their arrival, but because they are a security threat, they must be placed in solitary confinement and placed on a 24-hour watch list. Hey, I can dream, can’t I? The human hazmat suit proved, once again, his complete lack of humanity during his humiliating visit to the island formerly known as Puerto Rico. After publicly feuding with the capital city’s mayor during an unprecedented natural disaster, Trump tweeted “Such poor leadership ability by the Mayor of San Juan (and other Spanish speakers) … who are not able to get their workers to help. They want everything done for them.” Carmen Yulín Cruz, San Juan’s mayor, graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from Boston University, then earned her Master of Sciences degree from Carnegie Mellon University. She has previously worked in human resources at Westinghouse, Colgate-Palmolive, and Cellular One before returning to her native Puerto Rico and entering politics. Cruz is perfectly capable of handling a buffoon like Trump, who practiced his jump shot tossing paper towels to a prescreened crowd of jolly hurricane survivors. While Carrot Top’s biological father was tweeting insults from his 70th day on the golf course, Mayor Cruz was waist deep in contaminated water, begging the government for help. In an interview on the radical Christian network TBN, Trump defended his actions to Holier Than Thou Mike Huckabee, declaring, “They had these beautiful soft towels. Very good towels. And also, when I walked in, the cheering was incredible.” After the predictable blow-back from actual human beings with actual souls, the walking circus peanut was forced to read from a prepared speech: “We must all be united in offering assistance to everyone suffering in Puerto Rico.” Then, the Man With No Shame opened Hispanic Heritage Month by mocking a Spanish accent before a group of Latino leaders, saying, “We love Pueeerrrto Rico, or Portorico, as we call it.” As late as last Sunday, less than 12 percent of the island had power and only half the population had potable water. A power failure in a San Juan hospital caused the mayor to request additional help from FEMA; she received zero response. On October 8th, 18 days after the catastrophic storm, Cruz tweeted, “Increasingly painful to understand the American people want to help and US Government does not want to help. WE NEED WATER.” In return, Trump tweeted from the 14th tee, “Nobody could have done what I’ve done for Puerto Rico with so little appreciation.” Reputably, posters have appeared all over the island with Trump’s glowing mug over the lettering “El Pendejo,” which roughly translates into “asshole” in English. If further proof were needed to show Trump’s shallow indifference towards Puerto Rico, FEMA Administrator Brock Long stated, “We filtered out the mayor a long time ago. We don’t have time for this political noise.” I wonder if “pendejo” is more or less offensive than Secretary of State Rex Tillerson calling the president “a fucking moron”? Meanwhile, the five living past presidents — Saint Jimmy Carter, Poppy Bush, Bubba, Dubya, and Barack — established a joint project called “One America Appeal,” a recovery effort for hurricane victims in Texas, Florida, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, and what looks like Louisiana and Mississippi. Their efforts include a website where donated funds can be targeted to where they’re most needed, and a public service announcement that appeared before Trump’s new whipping boy, an NFL game. The George H.W. Bush Presidential Library announced that all five former presidents will appear at a country music concert on October 21st at Texas A&M stadium. Trump is not invited because he’s not remotely in the same class as the previous chief executives. Remember when chief counsel John Dean told Richard Nixon, “There is a cancer growing on the presidency”? Trump is the cancer. He is the fungus on the pendejo of life. There is no joy in this White House. One glance at Melania’s face makes it clear she is the unhappiest woman in America, which brings to mind the old quote by author Jill Mansell: “When you marry for money, you usually end up earning every penny.” Randy Haspel writes the “Recycled Hippies” blog.
