IN MEMORIAM: THE ORLANDO 49 Every week between now and the one-year anniversary of the Pulse Nightclub shootings, Orlando Weekly will profile a person killed on June 12, 2016. This week: Paul Terrell Henry
To his friends, Paul Terrell Henry was a bright light, a fun-loving person with a heart of gold. He was a regular at the Parliament House, where he loved to dance. But it was at the pool table where you’d be most like to find him. “He taught me,” says Angel Laroyale Lewis, a friend of Henry’s. “I wasn’t as good as him, but he would teach me a couple of things. He was good. He would beat everybody in that whole pool hall that challenged him.” Lewis says Henry was always putting others first. The 41-year-old Chicago native talked
fondly about his mother and his children often, especially his daughter, Alicia, who graduated from high school shortly before his death. Jaymie Glaspie, another friend, agreed with Lewis. She says Henry touched every person he met. He was a foodie, and loved cooking and making drinks for his loved ones. Glaspie, a chef, found out after Henry’s death that he liked to steal her recipes to cook for his other friends. Just thinking about it makes her laugh. He loved to sing and taught himself to play the piano. Lewis says that they often would swap songs back and forth, singing hymns to one another. Henry encouraged her, she says. He respected her decision to save up for a house, to get her degree. He always said she “had her head on straight.” The morning of June 12, Lewis says, she was there at the Pulse nightclub with Henry. She says they were supposed to leave the club earlier, but decided to stay late. It’s something she still struggles with. He was a man of God, once a pastor, with a voice as sweet as an angel’s, says Glaspie. “I want people to remember that he had a heart full of gold,” Glaspie says. “He was a pure person, just loving. He would do anything for you if it was in his power.”

Donald Trump returns to Florida, a federal court strikes down “Docs vs. Glocks,” a new flag for Orlando and other things you may have missed this week. »
One month into his presidency, Donald Trump campaigns for 2020 in Melbourne: Thirty days after becoming the 45th president of the United States, Trump kicked off his re-election campaign in front of an estimated 9,000 people inside a hangar at the Orlando Melbourne International Airport. Without a political opponent, Trump has found a new enemy for himself and the American people in the media and started off by attacking journalists, telling the crowd he wanted to speak “without the filter of the fake news.” Outside, hundreds of people protested, chanting “Hey hey! Ho ho! Donald Trump has got to go!”
– Deanna Ferrante
Federal court strikes down Florida law that stopped doctors from asking patients about their guns: In an 8-3 decision, the U.S. 11th Circuit Court of Appeals found that the Firearm Owners’ Privacy Act, also known as the “Docs vs. Glocks” law, violates medical professionals’ right to free speech because it threatens physicians with severe penalties for asking their patients direct questions about guns in their homes. Marion Hammer, the National Rifle Association’s top lobbyist in Florida, says the court “treats gun owners as second-class citizens.”
Florida Supreme Court blocks 24-hour abortion waiting period: The court stopped a 2015 Florida law that requires women to wait 24 hours after their first visit to a healthcare provider before having an abortion. Writing for the majority, Justice Barbara Pariente said, “The mandatory delay law impacts only those women who have already made the choice to end their pregnancies. … No other medical procedure, even those with greater health consequences, requires a 24-hour waiting period in the informed consent process.”

After the dramatic shutdown of Orlando’s Artegon “anti-mall,” the artists and vendors left behind wonder how it all went wrong BY MO N I V E TTE CO R D E I R O
ozens of artists and vendors arrived the morning of Jan. 12 for what they thought was a routine meeting between themselves and the management staff of Artegon Marketplace, Orlando’s two-year-old “anti-mall” on International Drive. In hindsight, maybe the presence of Orlando Police officers and bodyguards should have tipped them off something was out of the ordinary. Instead, the group known for its eclectic art sat crowded in front of the Book Warehouse to listen to David Miskin, the chief marketing officer at Lightstone Group, Artegon’s New York-based parent company, which owns $2.5 billion in real estate projects. After a few pleasantries, Sina Sutter remembers the gasps in the room when Miskin told them it was over – Artegon was closing. “When he said we had to leave, that whole group of 60 to 70 people got up and started asking, ‘What? No! How? Why?’” she says in Spanish. “Everyone was left uncertain. These were people that had invested millions of dollars into this. What do you mean I have to move in 10 to 15 days?” Since closing, Artegon has only released a short statement from its end, saying,

“Lightstone will be taking its Artegon Marketplace property in a new direction. While it was a difficult decision to discontinue operations, we are thankful to our team in Orlando, and to our tenants, for their hard work and dedication over the past several years.” OPD spokeswoman Wanda Miglio confirmed Artegon actually hired police officers to work there for the closing, though she couldn’t immediately confirm how many. Sutter, who opened a fine art gallery called Pinturas that featured her canvas paintings with hand-cut glass, says she felt like she lost family. “Artegon was the ideal place for artists in Orlando because there was nothing like it,” she says. “There’s festivals and events, but no organization, no institution, had given a space like that for artists to develop their talent and sell their products in a fixed place. And to me, this was more than just a business. It was a way of life. We all were dedicated to what we did, and we were always sharing with one another. It was a space for creation.” Months earlier, Artegon staff had calmed down vendors who were worried because the mall was up for sale, assuring them that if someone bought the property they would let them know, says Sutter’s friend Carmen Lopez. The owner of Bleu Beach Fashion, Lopez created bags, jewelry and clothes out
of recycled materials, such as old maps, at Artegon. “They told us we could keep working and that they were getting new vendors and signing new contracts,” she says in Spanish. “Logically, you’d think, ‘If they’re leaving, they wouldn’t be bringing in new people.’ So we stayed calm – until that meeting where they told us we had to leave. I asked, ‘Who did you sell it to?’ They said, ‘It’s not sold. We’re just closing it.’” Weeks after the “anti-ordinary anti-mall” was shut down, the fallout continues, with larger vendors filing several lawsuits against Artegon for terminating leases without warning and allegedly causing them millions of dollars in damages. Meanwhile, smaller vendors and artists, still grappling with the loss of their second homes and livelihoods, wonder how one of Orlando’s most innovative ideas came crashing down.
rtegon was built on the decaying remains of the Festival Bay Mall, a floundering shopping center that never managed to catch a crowd, which was a pretty rare feat given its prime location in the tourist district. Perpetually empty, the mall that opened in the early 2000s couldn’t fill its empty retail spaces, and at times, had entire corridors closed. Festival Bay, like many “Class C” malls around the country, was in danorlandoweekly.com
ger of dying and needed to reinvent itself, says Steven Kirn, the executive director of Miller Center for Retailing Education and Research at the University of Florida. Unlike a “Class A” mall, like the Mall at Millenia, or even a “Class B” mall, like the Florida Mall, Kirn says Class C malls are usually on the brink of extinction and try to stay relevant by adding movie theaters, health clubs, community centers or even DMV bureaus. Sometimes they’ll add more restaurants, or try to create a food hall or artisan market. Festival Bay took the artisanal route by reinventing itself as Artegon after it was acquired by Paragon Outlets, a subsidiary of Lightstone. When it opened in 2014, Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer predicted the 1.1 million-square-foot shopping center would be an “icon” in the city and an overnight go-to destination for the millions that visit every year. Alberto Quintero arrived there a few months after the mall’s opening to start a gallery called Fusion Art Group in one of the smaller central spaces, which were a maze of chainlink-fenced stalls. The more than 100 vendors varied in their crafts (from professional glassblowing to collectible comics), but they all were excited and eager to get to work, Quintero says. But CONTINUED ON PAGE 13

then the revolving door started: Smaller pop-up shops would leave Artegon as more filtered in. Rent was affordable, but single owners struggled to sell to the small crowds and abide by Artegon’s strict hours, which obligated them to be at the mall seven days a week, from 11
“IT WAS A SPACE FOR CREATION. IT WAS A WAY OF LIFE.” a.m. to 9 p.m. on most days. “I loved the space, the concept, the people that were around me, but the management was a bit brisk,” he says in Spanish. “They never really listened to us or took our ideas into account. Bad marketing and a lack of human quality made that project fail. But I was happy, in spite of everything. People enjoyed my gallery, and I invested a lot in it.” In 2015, the Orlando Sentinel reported control of Artegon had shifted to the parent company Lightstone and its employees, including chief creative officer David Miskin. Miskin helped reinvent the stores by adding more colorful art pieces throughout and replacing the vendors’ wire cages with actual storefronts. Artegon also announced plans for a food hall that would bring in unique restaurants. When Doug Snider arrived there 11 months ago to open a pop-up shop dedicated to wood sculptures, his rent equaled about $700 every month; he was simply charged a percentage of his sales. Snider says it was a good deal until he decided to join with other artists and expand into a co-op called Wild Life Gallery. In addition to raising his rent with a base fee, Artegon made him pay
thousands to have the visual team decorate his store and into a security deposit from which the mall could deduct $100 for each hour his store failed to operate. Snider adds that the mall included terms in his contract that allowed them to terminate his lease at any time. (It may sound draconian, but UF’s Steve Kirn says leases for smaller shops in most malls usually include a base rate and a percentage of sales, along with charges for amenities and open-hours requirements.) “The marketplace was like a revolving door for vendors,” Snider says. “The nine months that I was there I saw at least 25 stores open and close because the first three months the rent would be only 20 percent of all sales, which is the bait. Then, they would make the owners pay a large deposit, visual team fees, sign fees and make a good investment thinking they would not leave when the threemonth lease was up and the much higher rent kicked in.” Multiple Artegon shop owners told Orlando Weekly that several times, Artegon told them a new restaurant or business was coming that never materialized. Different owners also complained that they never understood the marketing of Artegon as an “anti-mall” and believed it confused people. OW reached out to Artegon management and the Lightstone Group for comment but did not hear back from either by press time. Still, Snider says he liked his work, and last December he signed a six-month contract with Artegon that lowered his rent slightly. “But I thought I smelled a rat when they negotiated to lower it,” he says. “My lease started on Jan. 1 and they gave us notice of termination on Jan. 12. This has cost me approximately $50,000 to $60,000 in lost revenue and additional equipment and decoration I purchased CONTINUED ON PAGE 14

after I renewed my lease. It’s inhumane.” Artegon was more successful for some than others, like Jeffrey and Kristin Howard, owners of Kick Bright Shop & Buttons. “It just doesn’t make any sense that it shut down because everything was better,” Jeffrey Howard says. “Traffic was better, money was coming into my business, my neighbor’s business. We stuck through the times when Artegon wasn’t doing so great and just when it was hitting its stride, they just stopped.” Some well-known stores, like Gods & Monsters, have found new locations after the mall closed, but smaller shops like Kick Bright are still looking for a home a month after the shut down. “I’m still booking orders out of the house and pop-up markets, but we can’t open a physical brick-and-mortar,” Kristin Howard says. “We couldn’t afford that type of rent.” It may never be clear why Artegon failed, but what we do know is that it’s part of the decades-long trend of the declining mall. “Places where you built a mall before have entirely different communities and markets than what was there 50 years ago,” Kirn says. “Populations change, income levels change. … Virtually no enclosed malls have been built in the last five years. That style of shopping is going away.”
eidi and Tony Wentzell opened their first business knowing they would be evicted in two weeks. The Wentzells opened the Hoppy Cellar, a craft beer and wine bar, the night of Jan. 12, just hours after other vendors heard the news that Artegon was closing. They were supposed to open at the mall the following week, but after hearing from a friend that Artegon was shutting down, the couple rushed to open so they could sell the inven-
ORLANDO WEEKLY ● FEB. 22-28, 2017
tory they had invested in. On Jan. 26, the Hoppy Cellar closed, along with the rest of the mall, except for retail anchors like Bass Pro Shops, Ron Jon Surf Shop, the Cinemark theater, Putting Edge mini-golf course, Boot Barn, Fuddruckers and Sky Zone. “It was a terrible experience,” Tony Wentzell writes in an email. “We were completely misled in bad faith.” The Wentzells say they quit their corporate jobs last year to fulfill their dream of opening the Hoppy Cellar and signed a contract with Artegon in October 2016. They were excited about the new venture and thought things were going well. Three days before Artegon announced it was closing, the couple was still receiving emails from their leasing agent about an invoice for the store signs. “Higher-ups within the mall and Lightstone knew that it was going to close and they could have put a stop to us spending more of our money,” Wentzell says. “All they cared about was collecting as much money from us as they could before they closed.” The couple emailed the senior general manager of the mall to ask for the return of their security deposit and other investments into the bar. The Wentzells say they have not received a response or money from anyone at Artegon or Lightstone. (Again, Orlando Weekly reached out multiple times to both Artegon and Lightstone for a comment but did not hear back from either by press time.) The Wentzells couldn’t provide a copy of their contract due to their traveling schedule, but another Artegon contract OW obtained says Artegon was a shopping center that was “undergoing redevelopment,” and that if the owners decided not to continue the mall’s redevelopment, Artegon could terminate anyone’s lease or license via a written notice. The contract says the licensee would have no right to recover any costs or damages from Artegon. Multiple vendors from Artegon ●
say each of their contracts were slightly different, though all of them mentioned a similar policy. Some of Artegon’s contracts also differentiate between “licenses” and “leases.” “I also personally called the asset manager of Lightstone Group and left him a voicemail and wrote him an email requesting they write us a check for the money we lost since they had screwed us over so bad,” Wentzell says. “Of course we never heard from him. I’ve spoken with attorneys and they all say it’s not worth the legal costs to recover the money we put into the business.” While the Wentzells have decided not to sue as they relocate their business, other vendors are getting ready for a fight. So far, Sky Zone Trampoline Park, Sky Trail, NYZ at Orlando (a zombie survival attraction that was scheduled to open) and Seed of Joy LLC have filed lawsuits against Artegon’s owner, FB Orlando Acquisition Company LLC, a subsidiary of Lightstone Group. Winter Park lawyer Tucker Byrd represents the first three plaintiffs and says he has more clients that plan to file. “No explanation was given to them,” Byrd says. “They were just told to get out, and get out fast.” In the 102-page complaint filed by Sky Zone, the trampoline park alleges it invested $2 million in capital improvements to its 25,000-square-foot unit when it received a notice on Jan. 12, without prior warning, that Artegon had terminated all leases and demanded vendors vacate the premise within two weeks – meaning the number of visitors was likely to drop precipitously. “[Artegon] attempted to justify its actions by concocting the excuse that the center was still under ‘redevelopment,’ and thus terminable under the leases,” the lawsuit says. “Defendant had ‘redeveloped’ the center years ago, even holding a ‘grand opening,’ to celebrate the repurposing and re-theming of the center, converting it from the failed ‘Festival Bay Mall,’ into the Artegon Marketplace. “The recent attempt to contradict themselves, all part of a thinly-veiled attempt to absolve itself of lawful obligations under leases with tenants in the center, has interfered with Sky Zone’s lease, adversely impacted its right to quiet enjoyment, and caused damages.” Byrd says it’s pretty clear Artegon was “looking for any reason to try to empty the mall.” “Sky Trail, for example, was never told their lease was being terminated and was being allowed to continue, but Artegon locked the front doors,” Byrd says. “How can you possibly tell them, ‘You can continue to use your space,’ but then not let any patrons into the mall?” Sky Zone also alleges after it entered into its lease with Artegon, several of the larger tenants that the mall had said would move
in, like the Radbourne Center skate park or Berghoff’s Oktoberfest brewery, never materialized. By the time Sky Zone opened in 2015, Artegon had sold the Cinemark theater and Bass Pro Shops. The mall “became the constant source of rumors about a potential sale to theme park developers in the Orlando tourist market,” the lawsuit says, prompting Artegon to assure its tenants in September 2016 that it would continue operating. “The combined pressures of challenges with tenant occupation, the liquidation of outparcels, and the prospects of reaping a substantial sum from selling off the property, impelled [Artegon] to look for and pursue a strategy to terminate leases in the center, even without justification,” the lawsuit says. “Defendant’s actions have
“IT WAS A TERRIBLE EXPERIENCE. WE WERE COMPLETELY MISLED.” cast a pall over the center, interfering with Sky Zone’s right to quiet enjoyment of the premises, by discouraging customers from continuing to use or book for future use the Sky Zone facilities for events, including charity events and children’s birthday parties, many of which have already been scheduled.” Byrd says some of his clients are still getting notices from Artegon to pay for this month’s rent. Byrd says it may have been cheaper for the mall’s owner to pay off breached contracts and sell to a developer than to keep running the artisan mall. “I guess you’d risk losing millions if you can still make multiple of millions,” he says. “Maybe they thought we’d give up and go away. But they picked on the wrong group of tenants because we fully intend to protect their interests. Sometimes the underdog does have a chance.” Meanwhile, smaller vendors like Sina Sutter and Carmen Lopez don’t plan to sue, but are still looking for a space to practice their craft. Lopez misses the little things about Artegon – seeing her friends every morning, getting hugs from clients. She doesn’t regret her two years there. “A lot of bad stuff happened, but that didn’t interest us,” she says. “When you’re an artist, you see things differently. I loved showing my clients how I make my bags. People went there to find their creativity and we helped them find it.” firstname.lastname@example.org

Fun fact: I first started writing
for Orlando Weekly just over 10 years ago, and in my fourth-ever OW article I mentioned a live reality show called The Feldman Dynamic, featuring local actor Brian Feldman and his dysfunctional family bickering around a dinner table. A little over a year later, I devoted the sixth installment of my fledgling Live Active Cultures column to Leap Year Day, a performance art project that featured Feldman falling off a ladder 366 times. Fast forward a decade, and I’ve now mentioned Feldman and his surreal stunts – from marrying a random stranger to trapping himself inside a skill crane arcade machine – on nearly 40 occasions, making him the single most covered subject of my arts journalism career. In that time, I’ve followed Feldman from one unconventional venue to another, including IKEA, Walt Disney World’s Carousel of Progress and the Loving Hut vegan restaurant. About the only thing I hadn’t done was invite him into my own abode for a performance. Well, I can now tick another box on my bizarro bucket list, because last week my house was transformed into a stop on the Orange County tour of Brian’s acclaimed conceptual experiment, Dishwasher.
PROLOGUE: THE DINNER
Feldman, who relocated to Washington, D.C., in 2012 but frequently returns to Central Florida, originated Dishwasher at the 2015 Capital Fringe, earning rave reviews in The Washington Post, City Paper and from other D.C. critics. When he announced a local run, I snapped up a booking for the day before Valentine’s and started plotting how to make it as challenging as possible. Step one: Bake a couple of trays of enchiladas for myself and my eight guests (including fellow theater producers, directors and playwrights).

Once dinner had been consumed, the crusty baked-on stage was set for the first act of the evening’s entertainment, in which Feldman diligently scrubbed our plates while I interrogated him about his dishwashing career. “When you’re in high school, you’re asked to get some kind of job to build character and have money for the weekend, so I got a job in a fast food chain,” said Brian, explaining the piece’s origin. “I didn’t last very long, because I got cast in a show, and I was having a tough time being able to show up for work and remain in character 24/7. I considered myself a method actor back then.” Prior dishwashing performances have ranged in difficulty from a student’s apartment in Georgetown that took under 20 minutes (“I felt so bad at how short it was”) to a Philadelphia appearance that took more than three hours: “I didn’t get to their house until 11:30 p.m. There were piles of dishes everywhere, the entire sink and counter was full … I finished at 3 in the morning and had to bike back.”
ACT 2: THE MONOLOGUE
Chez moi, the dishes were spotless 44 minutes later and Feldman’s hands were scalded, shriveled lobster claws. After an intermission for cake and coffee (which we didn’t make Brian clean up after) it
was time for the second act, in which Feldman performs a monologue of his host’s choosing. Previous audiences have selected everything from Shakespeare to “things that are completely outside the realm of theater,” such as the time he was asked to read Beyoncé’s “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)” with a Scottish brogue. I decided to torture Feldman with a notorious Samuel Beckett: Lucky’s nonsensical diatribe from Waiting for Godot. Cold reading the eight-minute unpunctuated rant off an iPad, Brian bravely bored through the dense gobbledygook while I chased him around my house with a hat (you had to be there). I tackled Feldman to the floor at the finale, and kicked him out the front door while we deliberated the evening’s ultimate question: Is Brian a better dishwasher or actor? There was a brief but spirited debate, and while we were all impressed with his scrubbing skills, the monologue’s difficulty factor ultimately informed our unanimous verdict that his thespian talents carried the day. So, what the heck does Dishwasher mean? “I don’t want to tell anybody how to think about what they are seeing,” Feldman demurred when asked, but conceded that he’s commenting on the tension “between what you want to do, and what you have to do.” For a followup, he says “anything that has ‘washer’ in the second half has potential to become a series, like ‘Carwasher’ or ‘Dogwasher.’” Until then, tickets are still available at brianfeldman.com for Dishwasher’s remaining dates. Finally, Feldman’s parting advice to any actors attempting to follow his footsteps into the cleansing arts: “Don’t do it. Do anything other than this.” That’s right, leave it to the professionals. firstname.lastname@example.org orlandoweekly.com

For more substantial plates, consider the seafood paella, arroz marinero cooked with plankton, and the red snapper fired up in a charcoal oven.

Beach-themed taquería fuses Mexican tradition with Latin, Mediterranean and Asian flavors and, for the most part, does so successfully. Tacos are on the small side, but when corn tortillas are filled with such succulent meats as duck confit in tamarind glaze, rotisserie pork pastor, and soy-, sesame- and sriracha-marinated Angus ribeye topped with kimchi, substance tends to trump size. Vegetarian options (falafel, cauliflower, portobello) abound, but don’t overlook other items like grilled corn rolled in lime, cayenne and cotija. Cocktails please even when desserts don’t wow.

timely skewering of Trump-era racial division, while Variety thinks it’s a send-up of the white liberals who elected Obama twice. Yep, Caucasian folks gon’ see what they wanna see in Jordan Peele’s directorial debut, Get Out – a sort of Stepford Wives/Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner? mashup about a young black man who discovers a sinister conspiracy when he goes to meet his white girlfriend’s parents. Whichever of us crackers the picture is actually aimed at, I’m sure glad it’s here, because horror with a social conscience is something we could always use more of. Even better, critical reaction to the film’s Sundance sneak preview indicates that it’s actually extremely well-made, which is a luxury you can’t always count on when it comes to politically wellintended genre outings. (R) Rock Dog The most expensive Chinese-
funded animated feature in history was a flop there, but maybe not because of any artistic shortcomings: Bitter corporate rivalries led to the film getting almost no play from the nation’s leading theater chain. Will it fare better
here in America, where it was actually made? Will stateside audiences take to the story of a Tibetan mastiff who puts his sheep-guarding duties aside to pursue his artistic muse as a rock & roller? Before you answer, check this out: The movie includes a voice performance by Sam Elliott, as a character named Fleetwood Yak. Not so sure of your weekend plans now, are ya? (PG) Toni Erdmann Get a last-minute look at another of this year’s foreign-made Oscar contenders, in which a divorced dad repairs his relationship with his business-minded daughter by adopting a goofy, bewigged alter ego. See, and you thought it was all just to win the White House. (R)
ALSO PLAYING: Everybody Loves Somebody The last time I can remember seeing an on-screen Californian head to Mexico for a family wedding, Cheech Marin’s relatives were calling the INS on themselves in Up In Smoke. This time, it’s a commitment-averse Latina who crosses the border to attend a big soiree, only to find herself in the middle of a romantic triangle with a co-worker and her ex. Cheech says that’s a lot of complications for a throwaway gag. (PG-13) In Dubious Battle Ed Harris, Bryan Cranston
and Robert Duvall all have supporting roles in this adaptation of John Steinbeck’s novel about union fruit workers in the 1930s. But it was directed by James Franco, which means it may not actually exist. (R) The Red Turtle An Oscar-nominated animated feature that follows a shipwrecked man who befriends a red turtle. Their relationship plays out entirely without dialogue – and boy, don’t the guys who work at Turtle Talk With Crush over at Epcot wish they could luck into a cushy gig like that. (PG)

GREAT LIVE MUSIC RATTLES ORLANDO EVERY NIGHT
he released his first comprehensive project, an experimental folk album called The Charles C. Leary, in 2002. The project was as ambitious as it was unique; it piqued the interest of Michael Gira, of Swans and Young God Records, who signed Banhart soon after hearing the Leary. Together the two quickly compiled a second album from Banhart’s other existing works. This follow-up album, titled Oh Me Oh My, was released later that same year, in the fall of 2002. Today, Banhart has more than a dozen albums under his belt. His indie sound is warm, yet variable, and leans heavily on influences from Latin American culture and classic folk music. He is widely credited with being a figurehead of the revival of “freak folk” music in the early ’00s but, almost stereotypically, he rejects any formal classifications. When asked by Freshmilk.tv to describe his sound, Banhart said, “I think my responsibility is to make it. You can describe it for people that need that in order to listen to it. I understand the significance and the importance of describing it but I don’t know how to do that.” Banhart’s music, like his identity, is mutable. Sometimes his sound evokes the spirit of ’60s crooners, and at other times, his vocal profile seems more like that of PHOTO BY SEBASTIAN SMITH any alternative rock musician. Witnessing his evolution as an artist as you work through his catalog is one of the most engaging journeys through indie music one can make. Currently he’s on tour promoting his latest album, Ape in Pink Marble. Banhart likened the creation of his Ape in Pink Marble to writing a film.

Typically, the Grammys are of little concern to me. But, man, class act, that Adele. Your mom was right about her.
Over the years, there have been some nice instances of important but overlooked bands finally getting their due. But few are as righteous as Death (Feb. 13, Will’s Pub), who have become perhaps one of the greatest history-righting rock stories of all time. Emerging from the Detroit underground that was coursing with the blood of the Stooges and the MC5, these three pioneering brothers, by dint of both their place and race, should’ve been etched in the seminal and absolutely essential proto-punk chapter in the history books. Instead, their stars were crossed, and despite some majorlabel interest, they went nowhere and folded in 1977 right before punk erupted and changed the world. But these guys were doing it way before Bad Brains. Fortunately, their place in the music canon has now been restored, thanks primarily to excellent indie label Drag City, who brought the band from footnote to headline in 2009 by finally giving a proper release to their 1970s recordings. Death has since reunited (minus the late David Hackney), gotten the documentary treatment (2012’s A Band Called Death) and released new music (2015’s N.E.W.). After an unlikely climb from an abyss of memory and time, they finally made their Florida debut. Like most of the world, I never saw Death’s original lineup with band visionary David Hackney, who died nearly a decade before they reformed. In his stead was guitarist Bobbie Duncan
Death beamed with the joy and gratitude of guys who’ve been granted a second, even bigger, lease on artistic life and are taking a victory lap they probably never thought they’d see.
– a bandmate of the other two Hackney brothers (Bobby and Dannis) in reggae project Lambsbread – who laid down the licks respectably. The rhythm section of Bobby and Dannis, however, was O.G. With them leading the charge, the pulse of Death is still alive with all its economy, kick and clarity. Right there, in that room, it was vintage Detroit brought back to miraculous life. The show was a monumental opportunity to see not just living history but history reclaimed. For underground music heads, it almost doesn’t get any more significant than this. Fortunately, there are a lot of us in Orlando, enough to pack the room with respect, raptness and full appreciation of the momentousness of the occasion. But the vibes coming off the stage were just as beautiful. The players beamed with the joy and gratitude of guys who’ve been granted a second, even bigger, lease on artistic life and are taking a victory lap they probably never thought they’d see. Thankfully, black punk isn’t such a
unicorn nowadays, as the great annual Afropunk Festival attests. But it’s not been historically common. And back in 1973, it was practically revolutionary. Had that bit of history on Death been duly recognized all along, think about how much more interesting and forward punk would be now. Luckily, a more chromatic new era is on the rise, and Death can be counted in it as both a reinstated historical cornerstone and a living part. Sometimes the cosmos is just, if a little late. Indie folk band Jamestown Revival, who just made their Orlando debut (Feb. 16, the Social), are part of the class of young folk gentry steering the genre toward wider, more pop-oriented horizons. No question, this is polished stuff. But it’s not as twee as their contemporaries the Avett Brothers, the Lumineers, et al. They fuse country, soul and blues with a big rock wingspan. What’s more, there’s some of that good Texas swagger in their sound. And that’s awfully tough to deny. Sharing the marquee was Los Angeles band the Record Company. The bluesrock trio has similarly glossy and centrist propensities, though they tend to lean on genre tropes. This ain’t no Black Keys here. But, luckily, they, too, delivered with thump and gusto on rubber-burning jams and decently greasy slide action. All of it was spirited, devout and professional. And even though it’s done by young guys, it’s something even your parents could get down to, which is telling. Judging from the crowd makeup, odds are more than reasonable that I saw your dad at the show. firstname.lastname@example.org orlandoweekly.com
FEB. 22-28, 2017
We love a good slam poetry jam or modern dance performance as much as the next gal, but sometimes we want more flavor on our cultural palate, and NXT never fails to deliver. As the minor league branch of the WWE universe, NXT is where independent wrestlers hoping to be signed and make their way to superstardom start out – giving the audience a chance to see how wrestlers develop their character and storyline, as well as the fun bloopers that happen along the way. Wrestling gets a lot of flak for being “scripted” and not enough credit for the performers’ athleticism and creativity – it’s more accurate to think of it as professional stunt men and women working within a storyline than calling it a fake sport. The acrobatics are impressive and the crowd’s energy at a live taping is contagious, but what keeps us coming back are the scenes involving the stars’ management. At first we were bewildered: Why would a high-energy live performance cut away from the action for extended conversations between wrestlers and their agents? Why do 20-minute arguments over contract signings need to take place in front of an audience? Why are video feeds of backstage disagreements over the wrestler’s next career move playing on a Jumbotron? Professional wrestling repeatedly body-slams an imaginary fourth wall, and if we went looking for a highbrow art event that pulls that off as well as NXT, we’d end up tapping out. – Abby Stassen
A sadly less-heralded visual corollary of the DIY underground music and self-publishing boomlets of the late ’80s was the revolutionary freedom offered to budding and not-so-budding filmmakers by the video medium. Suddenly all manner of malcontents could plump down a nominal fee to score their own VHS camcorder and start shooting their own Citizen Kane … or Pink Flamingos. Tampa’s Video Vengeance crew celebrates what they dub the S.O.V. (“shot on video”) genre, in all its gloriously amateur immediacy and flawed quality. (Reconceptualize tracking lines and tape skips as pops and crackles on an LP.) On Friday, they present a Central Florida-themed program of VHS goodness. Opening up the night is perpetual underdog wrestling promoter “Struggling Jay,” screening his short promo film for wrestler Garbage Mike. The main attraction, however, is the 1990 cult slasher gem The Night Brings Charlie, by Tom Logan. Logan filmed the whole thing in the Orlando area, so keep an eye out for local landmarks while taking in the murderous Technicolor rampage of Jasonas-deranged-tree-surgeon Charlie. Celebrate our local DIY grindhouse heritage. Free Pepsi is promised. – Matthew Moyer

Orlando City Stadium House Party
Field Trip South
OUR PICKS FOR THE BEST EVENTS THIS WEEK
This studded garage-rock festival is the first of its kind to happen in Orlando that we know of, and it’s as legitimately national as it is local. The two-day event is organized by Baltimore garage label Hidden Volume Records, which is the brainchild of former local Scott Sugiuchi of the legendary Hate Bombs. With great taste and deep Southern Culture on the Skids scene connections, he’s rustled up an extraordinary stampede of talent from coast to coast including the Woggles, the Little Richards (featuring the amazing El Vez), Southern Culture on the Skids, Subsonics, the Ar-Kaics, the Schizophonics, Midnight Larks and the Stents. Alongside will be homegrown prides like the Woolly Bushmen, the BellTowers, Tampa’s Little Sheba & the Shamans and, of course, a reunion of the beloved Hate Bombs. To really blow out the festivities, there will be DJs (some from WFMU), the colorful and slightly insane Nadeem Khan as MC, and a Hidden Volume pop-up shop stocked with rarities and showonly exclusives. Expect maximum sweat and style. – Bao Le-Huu with Southern Culture on the Skids, the Hate Bombs, the Woolly Bushmen and more | 7 p.m. | Will’s Pub, 1042 N. Mills Ave. | willspub.org | $20-$35

The seesaw of Orlando sports interest may see Magic fans dragging their butts in the dirt on one end, but Orlando City fans couldn’t hoist their famous purple flags any higher on the other. That is, before 25,500 impassioned fans welcome (strong word) New York City FC in their brand-spanking-new soccer-specific stadium, local hype is at full mast. In case you “can’t even” contain your purple pride, Orlando City’s Open House stadium sneak preview offers a chance to let off some pre-season steam. The open house features locker room and premium space tours, food tastings, photo opportunities, tailgate games and player autographs. Be sure to RSVP on the team website to book your spot at the most in-demand house party in town. – Joshua Kennedy 9 a.m.-1 p.m. | Orlando City Stadium, 655 W.

Talbert T. Gray: Breaking Barriers
Indie Lens Pop-up: Newtown
Though certain demagogues may disagree, “the media” plays many important roles in a free and civilized society. In addition to contributing to an informed – or willfully ignorant, whatever – public, the media often reflects changing times and attitudes, particularly as it grows to include underrepresented groups and viewpoints. Talbert T. Gray filled that role in 1969 when he joined WESH-TV, becoming the first black newsman in the state of Florida. The downtown Orlando Public Library, in conjunction with the Orange County History Center, hosts Gray this week for a talk about his career, covering everything from interviewing civil rights leaders to publishing the first magazine celebrating diversity in Central Florida. It promises to be an in-depth look at an important local figure who’s anything but “fake news.” – Thaddeus McCollum FILM
PHOTO COURTESY SUNDANCE FILM FESTIVAL
More than eight months ago, on June 5, 2016, we encouraged our readers to go attend a free screening of the documentary Making a Killing: Guns, Greed and the NRA, which focuses on America’s culture of gun violence and the gun lobby that resists stricter regulations. In a cruel twist, Orlando became the epicenter of conversations about gun violence a week after the screening when a gunman shot and killed 49 people at the gay nightclub Pulse. And as the months go by, we’ve learned how deep and lingering grief can be, even with the passage of time. The 2016 documentary Newtown explores those lasting effects as it follows the lives of several people impacted by the 2012 massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School, where 20 children and six adult school staffers were gunned down. Filmmaker Kim A. Snyder shows the effects of gun violence are more than bullets and blood; it’s a cold, haunting absence that doesn’t go away when the media trucks leave. The screening of this documentary – co-sponsored by the Florida Coalition to Prevent Gun Violence, WUCF and the Global Peace Film Festival – isn’t about searching for peace; rather, it’s about acknowledging the pain and working to change the future. – Monivette Cordeiro

Ladies Get (2)Lit
PHOTO BY ANGELINA CASTILLO MUSIC
Local feminist anthology zine Tittie Thyme, already known for its raucous zine release parties, is joining up with two other DIY tomes – the stellar perzine Phosphene Girl and the singular literary/photography zine Let’s Kiss – to put on an evening of readings and music billed as a celebration of “local ladies in literature.” The somewhat confined and cavernous surroundings of Lil Indies are an excellent setting – not least because the intimate scale keeps the readers and readings front and center – and the curiously strong alcoholic beverages at Indies may conjure up an atmosphere far removed from more restrained and academic readings. So much the better. Confirmed performers at press time include Alexia Clarke, Karina Curto, Zoya Zafar and Kayla Gordon. It’s safe to assume that new zines will be on offer, among sundry other art; a portion of the proceeds from the evening will be donated to Planned Parenthood of Southwest and Central Florida. – MM
What to say about Jonathan Richman, the most trusted Velvet Underground camp follower ever to insist “I’m Straight”? As a straitlaced but noise-addicted youth, Richman moved to New York to crash on VU’s couch and haunt their rehearsals, soaking up their sound. But when it came to his own band, the Modern Lovers, his sonic tributes were philosophical inversions. “Sister Ray,” the Velvets’ propulsive 1968 scuzz-hymn to shooting smack, when filtered through Richman’s brain, turned into the Modern Lovers’ “Roadrunner”: same structure, different chords; same urgency, but lyrically, a sweetly naive ode to driving around with the radio on. Despite their earnest, drug-free ethos, Modern Lovers were an early force in U.K. punk rock – the Sex Pistols recorded a demo of “Roadrunner” – but all these years later, Richman sans Lovers has shed the speed and noise to become, as so many elder statesmen do, a lovable oddball storyteller. He prophesied on that first album, “Someday I think I’ll be dignified and old”; he is, and so are a lot of his listeners, who should appreciate the early-bird timing of this Sunday evening show at the Social. – Jessica Bryce Young

ORLANDO WEEKLY ● FEB. 22-28, 2017
How does time pass so quickly and haphazardly? Here it is, 10 years since angular indie-punk trio Lemuria released their seminal debut album Get Better, and now even they’re having to bow to the inevitable heartstring tug of nostalgia, scheduling an extensive tour to air out that body of songs in full. The sound of Get Better is a headrush of raw feeling in line with the Breeders and Discount but with a serrated punkoid bite. Get Better expanded Lemuria’s audience far outwards – beyond those underground heads already seduced by a steady stream of singles and split releases – uniting indie fans, hardcore kids and emo obsessives alike. Things have been somewhat quiet in the Lemuria camp of late, so it’s gratifying to see the New Yorkers get a (better late than never) victory lap. – Matthew Moyer with Cayetana, Mikey Erg, Teen Agers | 7 p.m. | Backbooth, 37 W.

Are you looking for a new furry friend? Meet Mackerel!
Mackerel (A369664) is a 3-yearold kitty who is looking for a home. He’s been looking for a new friend for a few weeks now, and we’re not sure why because he is as sweet as can be! Mackerel loves attention – he’ll even reach out and paw you when you stop petting him. He is very affectionate and loving, and he’s ready to go home today! The adoption fee for cats is $40. Fees include sterilization, vaccinations and a microchip. Orange County Animal Services is located at 2769 Conroy Road, near the Mall at Millenia. The shelter is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday and from 1 to 5 p.m. Sunday. For more information, please call 407836-3111 or visit ocnetpets.com.
I am a straight married man. My wife and I have a 4-year-old and a 3-monthold. We’ve just started having intercourse again. For Valentine’s Day, we spent the night in a B&B while grandma watched the kids. We had edibles, drank sparkling wine and then fucked. It was amazing. After we came and while we were still stoned and drunk, my wife mentioned she was open to inviting others into our sex life. I asked about getting a professional sex worker. She said no. But maybe if we were in a bar (we’re never in bars) and met someone (a unicorn), she might be into it. Anal came up. She’s always said she’s up for trying anything once. I have a desire to experiment with anal. (Not just me entering her, but her pegging me as well.) I asked if she would use the vibrator we brought on me, just to experiment. She said she was too high to do anything. I felt let down. I feel she unknowingly teased me with fantasies I have, not knowing I actually have them. We have a good sex life, and I’m willing to write off the fantasies we discussed while high and drunk. It’s the teasing that drove me crazy. Having And Realizing Desires P.S. I’m in no hurry. We just had a baby, and I don’t want to pressure my wife right now. My fear is that she may only like the idea of exploring our sexuality together and not the reality of it. Some people think about, talk about and masturbate about certain fantasies without ever wanting to realize them. Let’s call them Team Fantasize. Some people think about, etc., certain fantasies and would very much like to realize them. Let’s call them Team Realize. There’s nothing wrong with either team. But when someone on Team Fantasize is married to someone on Team Realize, well, that can be a problem. Knowing your spouse is turned on by fantasies you share but rules out realizing them – or sets impossible conditions for realizing them – can be extremely frustrating. And sometimes a frustrated Team Realize spouse will say something like this to their Team Fantasize mate: “Talking about these fantasies together – this kind of dirty talk – it gets my hopes up about actually doing it. If it’s never going to happen, we have to stop talking about it, because it’s frustrating.” The problem with that approach? Swingers clubs, BDSM parties and the strapon-dildo sections of your finer sex-positive sex-toy stores everywhere are filled with couples who used to be on opposite teams – one from Team Fantasize, the other from Team Realize – but they’re both on Team Realize now. And what got them on the same team? Continuing to discuss and share fantasies, even at the risk of frustrating the Team Realize spouse. So if you ever want to have that threesome or experiment with anal, HARD, you
need to keep talking with your wife about these fantasies – and you need to tell her your fantasies too! Tell her you’re not pressuring her, of course, but let her know these are things you would actually like to do, and the more you talk about them, the more you want to do them. If she keeps talking with you about them, that’s a sign. Not a sign that she’s a cruel tease, HARD, but a sign that she’s inching closer toward pulling on a Team Realize jersey. P.S. If your wife doesn’t know you have these fantasies – and is consequently teasing you “unknowingly” – that’s your fault, HARD, not hers.
us to go beyond that. Nothing extreme, I just want to switch things up a bit. Talking about sex makes my husband REALLY uncomfortable. If I ask him what he’d like me to do to him while we’re having sex, he shuts down. He’ll say, “Everything you do is good,” and leave it there. In the very few conversations we’ve had about this stuff, he’s said that he feels intimidated and doesn’t know what to say. This is incredibly frustrating for me. How do I get him to loosen up and feel more comfortable about talking to me so that we can eventually progress to some new experiences? Why Husband Is Prudish
I wanted to tell you about something that happened to my friend. (Really!) She was going to bang this dude from OkCupid but wasn’t getting a great feeling, so she went to bed and let him crash on the couch. She woke up the next day to find her underwear drawer empty on the floor and all of her underwear wrapped around this dude’s feet. She stealthily removed all the panties from his perv hooves and put her shit away. When the morning actualized itself, they parted amicably with no mention of the underwear slippers. Men In Alaska
Have you told him what you want? If you haven’t – if you’re as vague in your conversations with him as you were in your letter to me – you’re essentially asking your husband to guess at your undisclosed interests or kinks. Your husband is probably terrified of guessing wrong. He doesn’t know what to do, he doesn’t know what to say – but he’s told you he’s fine with whatever you want to do. So stop asking him what he wants to do to you, WHIP, and start doing whatever it is you want to do. Take the initiative, be the change you want to see in the sack, lean in or bend over or whatever. From your sign-off, WHIP, I’m guessing you’re interested in some type of BDSM play, most likely with you in the sub role. So lay your kink cards on the table and offer to dominate him first. A lot of subs do some topping, i.e., doing unto others as they would like done unto them, and some subs become tops exclusively. But take baby steps, it’s mild before wild, you gotta nail those juniorvarsity kinks before moving up to varsitylevel kinks, etc.
Ask yourself which is the likelier scenario, MIA. Scenario No. 1: This guy stumbled around your friend’s dark apartment in the middle of the night, managed to find her underwear drawer, pulled it out and set it on the floor, made himself a pair of pantiebooties, had himself a wank and fell back to sleep. All without waking your friend. Then your friend got up in the morning, saw her panties wrapped around his hooves, peeled them off one by one and returned her panties to their drawer. All without waking Perv Hooves up. Scenario No. 2: Your friend got pervy with this guy, wanted to tell you about this guy’s kink, but was too embarrassed to admit that she played along and possibly got into it. My money is on Scenario No. 2, MIA, because I’ve heard this song before: “I met this pervert who did these perverted things in front of me while I was asleep, and I wasn’t in any way involved and I wasn’t harmed. Isn’t that pervert crazy?” Yeah, no. In most cases, the person relaying the story played an active role in the evening’s perversions but edited the story to make themselves look like a passive bystander, not a willing participant.

I’m a 30-year-old straight woman who has been with the same guy (high-school sweetheart!) for the last 13 years. We love each other deeply, best friends, etc. The problem isn’t that the sex isn’t good – he’s very good at making me come. But the sex is vanilla and routine, and I would like orlandoweekly.com
