President Takes Pause on Syria Washington The White House tried Wednesday to pin the success or failure of a diplomatic option to secure Syria’s chemical weapons on Russia rather than the U.S. as Secretary of State John Kerry headed for Geneva to work on a Russian proposal for international inspectors to seize and destroy the deadly stockpile. With the public focus on diplomacy rather than military might, Vice President Joe Biden and senior White House officials summoned House Democrats and Republicans for classified briefings as a followup to President Barack Obama’s nationally televised address in which he kept the threat of U.S. airstrikes on the table and said it was too early to say whether the Russian offer would succeed. White House spokesman Jay Carney declined to put a deadline on diplomatic efforts to resolve the standoff but said that bringing Syr-

ia’s chemical weapons stockpile under international control “obviously will take some time.” “Russia is now putting its prestige on the line,” he said. Asked whether U.S. prestige also was on the line, Carney added: “The United States leads in these situations. And it’s not always popular and it’s not always comfortable.” On Capitol Hill, action on any resolution authorizing U.S. mili-

tary intervention in Syria was on hold, even an alternative that would have reflected Russia’s diplomatic offer. Senators instead debated an energy bill. “T he whole ter ra in has changed,” Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., told reporters after a meeting of Democrats on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. “We want to make sure we do nothing that’s going to derail what’s going on.”

The five permanent members of the U.N. Security Council met Wednesday to consider goals for a new resolution requiring Syria’s chemical weapons to be dismantled. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry was to meet with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov in Geneva today about the nuts and bolts of putting Syria’s chemical weapons under international control and destroying them. Rebels who had hoped U.S.-led strikes against the Syrian government would aid their effort expressed disappointment, if not condemnation of the U.S., over President Barack Obama’s decision to pursue diplomacy.(AP)

T hough some law ma kers weren’t so sure about a deal. Republican Sen. John McCain, an outspoken advocate of aggressive U.S. military intervention for months, said he was concerned that the Russian plan could be a “rope-a-dope” delaying tactic, and “that the slaughter goes on.” JULIE PACE AND NANCY BENAC (AP)

Benghazi Attacked Again on 9/11 None killed by bomb 1 year after deadly U.S. embassy riots CHRIS JACKSON (AP)

A car bomb tore through a Libyan Foreign Ministry building in the eastern city of Benghazi on Wednesday, a powerful reminder of lawlessness in the North African nation on the anniversary of a deadly attack on the U.S. consulate there as well as the 2001 terror attacks in the United States. Prime Minister Ali Zidan issued a stern warning to militias blamed for much of the violence that has plagued Libya since the overthrow of dictator Moammar Gadhafi two years ago, proclaiming that “we

will not bow to anyone.” No group immediately claimed responsibility for the attack, which came a day after bomb disposal experts defused an explosive device found next to the Foreign Ministry headquarters in Tripoli. The Benghazi blast caused no deaths but destroyed the Foreign Ministry branch building in an attack rich in symbolism. The building once housed the U.S. consulate under the rule of King Idris, who was overthrown in 1969 in a bloodless coup led by Gadhafi. The bombing came exactly one year after al-Qaeda-linked militants stormed the U.S. mission in Benghazi and a nearby U.S. building, killing U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans. “We can’t ignore the date and

Suicide Bombers Target Egyptian Military in Sinai

Security Woes

In Brief

In near-simultaneous attacks, a pair of suicide bombers rammed their explosives-laden cars into military targets in Egypt’s volatile Sinai on Wednesday, killing at least nine soldiers, security officials said. The bombings in the town of Rafah on the border with the Gaza Strip appear to be a deadly response by insurgents to a military crackdown on their northern Sinai hideouts that has reportedly left more than three dozen dead. Suicide attacks are a new element in the wave of political violence triggered initially by the ouster of Egypt’s Islamist president Mohammed Morsi on July 3. They have intensified in response to a violent crackdown on his supporters.

The attacks suggest that al-Qaedainspired groups may be developing a new capability to strike at security and other targets, both in Sinai and elsewhere in Egypt. The officials gave a death toll of nine for both attacks but did not provide a breakdown of how many were killed in each. Military spokesman Col. Ahmed Mohammed Ali said the new attacks appear to be revenge for the Sinai offensive, which he said hurt the militants by destroying their weapons caches and ammunition stocks. “The use of car bombs and suicide attacks is a new turn,” Ali said. “This will not stop us but will increase our determination to confront terrorism that endangers Egypt and beyond to the world as a whole.” ASHR AF SWEIL AM (AP)

Another Year Before Hub Opens?

Wednesday, Sept. 11

Silver Spring The Silver Spring Transit Center will likely not be open until next summer at the earliest, the general contractor for the troubled project told Montgomery County officials Tuesday, calling a repair plan favored by the building’s designer “technically ill-advised and illconceived.” Foulger-Pratt’s projection of a mid-2014 opening is the most specific offered by a major player in

It has been nearly five years since construction began on the $120 million Silver Spring Transit Center. The contractor now predicts a mid-2014 opening.

the project since an independent consultant reported in March that the $120 million bus-and-train hub was unsafe and unusable without major repairs.

It is not clear when FoulgerPratt will be able to start that work. David Dise, Montgomery County’s general services director who is responsible for overseeing the

repairs, did not agree with FoulgerPratt’s assessment, but he declined to offer an alternative date for when the transit center might open. He told the County Council that a series of variables made it impossible to set a date yet. Foulger-Pratt’s mid-2014 prediction came in a letter — and an accompanying news release — taking issue with the county’s selection of latex-modified concrete to cover cracks and exposed steel supports. Councilman Phil Andrews, ref lecting on the nearly f ive years since the start of construction, said: “The World Trade Center was built in less time.” BILL TURQUE (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Pr. George’s Fights Food Deserts

Two soldiers are on hand at the new D.C. National Guard Museum on Wednesday. WASHINGTON

National Guard Museum Opens on 9/11 Anniversary The D.C. National Guard Museum opened for the first time Wednesday, coinciding with the 12th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. Soldiers from the D.C. National Guard were among the first responders to the attack on the Pentagon, and uniforms and equipment used by pilots who were on duty that day are on display. The 1,000-square-foot museum is located at the D.C. Armory near RFK Stadium. (AP)

County officials take measures to ensure access to healthy food Pr. George’s County, Md. In July, the U.S. Department of Agriculture found at least 10 food deserts — which the USDA defines as low-income areas with low access to grocery stores that sell fresh produce — in Prince George’s County, Md. Some think this is a health hazard, and now the county is aiming to do something about it. “Low access depends on the distance to the nearest supermarket or large grocery store and how many households do not have a vehicle and are at least a half-mile from a supermarket or large grocery store,” said Michele Ver Ploeg,

About 5.7 million U.S. households live in food deserts. But whether that affects people’s weight and health is a matter of debate. An Institute of Medicine report found that people who live in lower-income neighborhoods often have to shop at convenience stores that do not offer affordable fruits and vegetables. “These same neighborhoods frequently have high rates of diet-related diseases, such as obesity and diabetes,” the report said. Last year, however, a RAND Corp. study found no link between the kind of food available near the homes of 13,000 children in California and whether they were overweight. (TWP)

Trump Ponders FBI’s HQ For Redevelopment Plan

Donald Trump said this week that he is considering whether to pursue a redevelopment project of the J. Edgar Hoover Building, the current home of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, which is seeking a new venue. Trump said the timing could work well if it falls in late 2015 or early 2016, the projected end-date of his other D.C. project, the Old Post Office Pavilion, which Trump says will become a luxury hotel.

Five painters and other contractors were charged in recent months with paying bribes to General Services Administration building managers to win small-time work in a scheme dating back to at least 2008, according to authorities and court records. The bribes and the work, though, were relatively small-time, averaging a few hundred dollars each. (TWP)

for example, there is a line of fastfood hamburger outlets, a fried-fish purveyor, a chain doughnut store and a restaurant that sells pancakes. There are liquor and wine stores and stores that serve food from behind thick panes of plastic. But there is not a major grocery store or market that sells fresh food.

Howard Ways, executive director of the Prince George’s County Redevelopment Authority, said more urban gardens and farmers markets can be part of the solution, too. The county recently gave a $50,000 community impact grant to the nonprofit Eco City Farms to create an urban farm in Bladensburg, where the produce would be sold on site. Two months ago, a farmers market opened in Suitland. “Urban farms and farmers markets are another way of getting fresh produce to communities that lack access,” Ways said.

D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray, D.C. United investors and local labor leaders announced a deal Tuesday that would require mostly union workers to build a 20,000-seat soccer stadium pegged for Buzzard Point in Southwest. The project is still far from certain. The mayor has not acquired the needed land nor approval from the D.C. Council to build the stadium under a complex series of deals proposed by City Administrator Allen Lew, and critics have begun questioning its value to taxpayers. But Gray and Lew said that by agreeing to use union labor, the District and team would ensure that the project would provide job opportunities for D.C. residents and could be completed on time. Under the agreement, the team agrees to require its general contractor, as well as subcontractors earning as much as $6 million in

Lew said that a no-strike provision in the deal will also prevent work stoppage. Under a July 25 term sheet between the team and the city, D.C. is expected to deliver the land and pass legislation by Jan. 1 of next year so the team can begin play in the new stadium by 2016.

Cover Story

A Familiar Direction An update to Metro’s iconic map mirrors its original design Washington After more than a year in the making, Metro will unveil a new map today that includes the future 23-mile Silver Line in Northern Virginia. It is the first time the iconic subway map has been redone since the Metro system opened 37 years ago. Metro officials kept the new map under tight wrap for more than two years while original designer Lance Wyman worked on the update. It shows not just the Silver Line, but added features such as connections to airports and other rail systems. The first phase of the 11-mile Silver Line is expected to open early next year with five new stations that run from East Falls Church to Reston, Va. The second phase will run to Dulles International Airport and into parts of Loudoun County. Redoing the map to include the Silver Line has been a challenge. When Metro hired Wyman under an $80,000 contract to lead the effort, many riders told the agency how fond they were of his original map design and didn’t want to see too much change. “In a way, it was like designing camouflage,” Wyman said. “You had to adopt to changes but make it look like it hasn’t changed. You had to keep what had become a visual icon to the city.” He was presented with several restrictions. The canvas couldn’t get any larger, many of the wellknown icons needed to stay, and he had to show how the Silver Line would run through downtown. And in a town where few lack opinions, Wyman had to take into

Construction is expected to begin in mid-2014 on the second phase of the Silver Line, which will run to Dulles Airport and Loudoun County, Va.

The Silver Line is in the middle of the Orange and Blue lines, different from its position in an earlier incarnation. More accurate positions of the icons for Congress Heights and Southern Avenue.

Riders suggested thinner rail lines similar to New York’s subway map. Designer Lance Wyman said it was “pretty tricky” to “not make [them] look like they weren’t on a diet.”

ting it in between the Orange and Blue lines, Wyman said, made it look more like “an integral part” of the subway map. He also had to show that three rail lines — Blue, Orange and soon Silver — would run to downtown stations. Many riders have been confused, thinking that the Silver Line was only running in Northern Virginia. Some riders thought they would have to get off the Silver Line at the East Falls Church stop and transfer to the Orange Line to continue going to downtown or points east of the District.

Sports Klinsmann’s True Test Is World Cup

“The best thing he’s done is create lots of competition. … It’s not in a pressure way, but it’s in an accountability way.” — U.S. STA R L A NDON DONOVA N, ON COACH JURGEN KLINSMANN

“The team’s success, especially in official competitions and difficult games in Europe, has been very good,” U.S. Soccer Federation President Sunil Gulati said Wednesday, “but I think everyone understands that the World Cup is a different level.” Beating Mexico by the now traditional “dos a cero” score at Columbus Crew Stadium on Tuesday night — the Americans have done it in four straight home qualifiers — clinched the World Cup berth with two games to spare. RONALD BLUM (AP)

TV Lineup NATIONALS (1:10 P.M., MASN) Entering Wednesday night’s game, the Nationals had won 21 of their past 30 and cut down their wild-card deficit to six games. They finish a series against the Mets tonight before starting a 10-game homestand.

Capitals goalie Braden Holtby started 35 of Washington’s 48 games last season, going 23-12-1 with a 2.58 goals-against average and a .920 save percentage.

Reading Between the Lines As camp opens, Caps focus on figuring out key position battles Capitals The Washington Capitals open training camp today at Kettler Capitals Iceplex in Arlington. With less than three weeks until their season opener against the Chicago Blackhawks on Oct. 1, they have some interesting personnel decisions to make.

Forwards The Capitals’ top six is more or less set with Marcus Johansson, Nick las Backstrom and A lex Ovechkin reuniting on the first line and Martin Erat, offseason acquisition Mikhail Grabovski and Troy Brouwer likely forming the second line. But the bottom six is in a state of flux.

Brooks Laich and Mathieu Perreault figure to comprise twothirds of the third line, while Jay Beagle will center the fourth. That leaves five players — left wingers Jason Chimera and Aaron Volpatti and right wingers Eric Fehr, Joel Ward and Tom Wilson — competing for three spots. Wilson is the wild card. The 19-year-old appeared in three playoff games for the Capitals last season and has impressed team brass, but with a salary cap hit of nearly $1.3 million, there is not enough room to add him to the roster without cutting ties with someone else.

Defense Washington’s top three defensemen — Mike Green, Karl Alzner and John Carlson — are all potential Olympians for a reason, but the gap between them and the next three — John Erskine, Jack Hillen and Steve Oleksy — is wide.

PATRICK MCDERMOTT (NHLI VIA GETTY IMAGES)

Jurgen Klinsmann sat on a podium and smiled after guiding the United States into its seventh straight World Cup. Not to minimize the accomplishment, but the former German star player and coach will be judged not on reaching soccer’s elite tournament, but on how well the United States performs in Brazil next year.

PATRICK MCDERMOTT (NHLI VIA GETTY IMAGES)

Soccer

Caps forward Tom Wilson, 19, played in three playoff games last year.

Erskine and Carlson served as the Capitals’ shutdown pair last season, but the former’s overexposure to tough defensive assignments ultimately worked against them as he became a liability as the season wore on. Erskine will get first crack at retaining his top-four position, but a healthy Dmitry Orlov, limit-

ed to five NHL games last season because of a concussion, has the most upside among potential challengers and will vie for Erskine’s spot. Hillen, paired with Oleksy in the latter stages of the season, is another possibility.

Goaltender Since taking over in goal ahead of the 2012 Stanley Cup Playoffs, Braden Holtby has proven to be a reliable starting goaltender. In his first full 82-game NHL season, he will look to further establish himself as the Capitals’ anchor in goal for the foreseeable future. Behind him sits Micha l Neuvirth, who was once a starter but is now a victim of circumstance as bouts of injury and inconsistency have allowed Holtby to usurp him. Neuvirth, however, is a capable backup and will provide solid goaltending when called upon. ADAM VINGAN (FOR E XPRESS)

Suh Fights Back: Ndamukong Suh is appealing his latest fine. The Detroit Lions defensive tackle was fined $100,000 for an illegal block on a Minnesota Vikings player in the Lions’ season-opening win last weekend. It is believed to be the NFL’s biggest monetary fine for on-field conduct, not including the dollars lost by players due to suspensions. “I’m going to continue to play hard, blue-collar football,” Suh said Wednesday.

I had to be careful; I had to get the facts right. In the other ones, I could make it up, more or less. For this one, I had to do a lot of research. Although there are some fictional elements when you reconstruct what people say and do, the underlying story must be based on fact. It also has to ring true. The tone of it has to be accurate. It’s all about trying to get into Alexander Graham Bell’s head, and of course, he’s gone, so it all has to be done by research, and then you add your imagination to that.

— JIM LEHRER, NEWSMAN, PLAYWRIGHT AND AUTHOR OF THE NEW PLAY “BELL”

Local actor Rick Foucheux plays Alexander Graham Bell in “Bell,” a play by Jim Lehrer opening Thursday at National Geographic.

Jim Lehrer, Playwright The lauded newsman makes his fourth foray into the theater world Stage Journalism, Jim Lehrer says, was never his primary calling. Though the retired newsman is proud of his work as host of the “PBS Newshour” and his turn as moderator for a dozen presidential debates, he got into the business to be a writer, not a reporter.

5 Some diamonds In 1971’s “Diamonds Are Forever,” one Bond girl is Tiffany Case, which makes sense in a movie about jewels. The other is Plenty O’Toole, which would make sense in another kind of movie bow-chicka-wow-wow.

“Whether you’re in journalism or writing fiction, you always have to tell stories.”

INDIES & ARTIES

T h a t ’s w h y, t h r o u g h o u t his 54-year career, Lehrer has collected Emmys by day and w r it t e n f ic t ion b y n i g ht — penning 20 novels and four plays to date. Lehrer’s newest play was commissioned by the National Geographic Society and focuses on the group’s second president, A lexander Graham Bell. The one-man show, “Bell,” stars local actor Rick Foucheux and will premiere at National Geographic’s headquarters Thursday.

What do you hope audiences of this play will come away with?

Most people think of Alexander Graham Bell as the telephone man. I think after people see this play, they will realize he’s about a lot more. One thing people don’t know about was his attempt to develop a metal detector — a machine that could find the bullet that was lodged in the body of then-President James Garfield. The second thing people don’t know about him is that he was right there with the Wright brothers in developing powered-manned flight. I also think the play will get across how important inventors, the inventing spirit and the inventing mind have been and will always be — not only to our country, but to our world. What did you find most challenging about writing your

How have you managed to work simultaneously as a journalist and a fiction writer for your entire career?

Whether you’re in journalism or writing fiction, you always have to tell stories and you always have to use words to do it. Telling a story is part and parcel of good journalism. The better you tell it, the wider the audience and the wider the understanding is going to be. SADIE DINGFELDER (E XPRESS)

Faith in Blind Whino Arts T he desanctif ied church at 700 Delaware Ave. SW looks like 1,000 cans of paint sneezed on it: The exterior is covered in black-and-white polka dots, Jackson Pollock-y splashes and undulating ribbons of neon. Georgia-based artist Hense spent two weeks composing the trippy mural wrap on the building — which, after sitting vacant for more than 20 years, is now home to the Blind Whino arts club (blindwhino.org). Founded by Shane Pomajambo (executive director of National Harbor’s Art Whino gallery) and Ian Callender (principal designer at Suite Nation, a D.C.-based events firm), the nonprofit event space features a performance hall, art and gardening classes for children, and a gallery annex for exhibits such as the G40 Art Summit, which opens at Blind Whino on Saturday. “The opportunities for what we can do here are endless,” Callender says. “I’m picturing an R&B crooner with an old-school microphone. I can see plays being performed on the stage. And if Jay Z wants to come down, we’re open to that, too!” Despite its audacious exterior (with a mural-drenched interior to match), the 15,000-square-foot property is surprisingly hard to find: It’s tucked away on a residential cul-de-sac away from major thoroughfares. “A mong those who are aware of it, we’re very excited,” says Kael Anderson, president of the Southwest Neighborhood Assembly and organizer of the SW ArtsFest (swdcartsfest.org).

G40 Art Summit Blind Whino will host this year’s G40 Art Summit, a monthlong exhibit founded by Shane Pomajambo featuring more than 300 works by 250-plus artists. The opening reception with DJs and dancing will take place Saturday from 7 to 11 p.m.

“It’s a great addition to an area with a lot of potential for creative development that’s been underutilized.” The discreet little corner won’t stay that way for long: Directly across the street from Blind Whino sits a former junior high school that was purchased in February 2010 by art-world royalty Don and Mera Rubell. The Rubells — who also own the Capitol Skyline Hotel — plan to turn the space into an extension of their private museum in Miami. “When the Rubells bring that passion and level of quality to Washington, this neighborhood is going to explode and transform,” says Lisa Gold, executive director of the Washington Project for the Arts. “Along with Blind Whino, it’s

going to invigorate the neighborhood.” Though Pomajambo says he’s open to collaborating with the Rubells should the opportunity arise, he’s focused on getting Blind Whino off the ground. Pomajambo and Callender are relying on private funding and corporate sponsorships from Heineken and Ciroc to keep events and space rental at Blind Whino absolutely free. “The idea has always been to make this space accessible to everyone,” Pomajambo says. W it h f ive Met ro stops w it hin a mile radius and at least four bus lines serving the property, people all over the city can easily visit this new, vibrant addition to Southwest — which is nothing to sneeze at.

Whino’s Hidden Quirks Blind Whino is housed in a former Baptist church designed and built by James A. Boyce in 1875. Including an annex that the congregation added to serve as office space decades later, there are 11 rooms (including two bathrooms) open to the public. As you meander around the property, see if you can spot these hidden design features: There are 23 red stars, 16 butterflies and two pencils spray-painted on the walls and floors of the first-floor lounge. Can you find them all? One of the murals in the lounge features a burly, tattooed man. What does his ink say? Locate a mural of Pinocchio with Jiminy Cricket telling him, “Don’t lie!” Try to figure out what function the DJ booth used to serve. Hint: A blessing ritual was conducted there when the building was still a church. Find the lamp that looks like Aladdin’s embedded in a stained-glass window in the performance hall upstairs. H.S.

Going Out With a Bang Estelle Parsons plays a volatile old lady in ‘Velocity of Autumn’ at Arena Stage

Alexandra (Estelle Parsons) knows her way around a Molotov cocktail.

Stage “Being old is such a different part of life,” actress Estelle Parsons says. “Your outlook changes. Like, I was putting in for a grant for this female ‘King Lear’ project I’m working on, and one of the questions was, ‘What are your plans for the future?’ I put, ‘I’m 85. I’m not really having a lot of plans.’ “I didn’t get the grant,” she says. “I guess that was the wrong answer.” Aging is the central theme of Arena Stage’s “The Velocity of Autumn,” in which Parsons plays Alexandra, a 79-year-old who lives alone in a Brooklyn brownstone. Instead of filling her time with ne e d le p oi nt a nd “ W he e l of Fortune” played REALLY LOUDLY on the television, she’s amassed enough Molotov cocktails to take down her entire block in an effort to prevent her two daughters from putting her in a nursing home.

Her son (played by Stephen Spinella), the other half of the twoperson cast, climbs through her window to prevent this particular raging against the dying of the light. Alexandra tells him about her life, so it’s like storytime with Grandma, except there are snipers gathering

on the surrounding rooftops. “[Director] Molly [Smith] sent me the play and I really wanted to do it because I loved the character,” Parsons says. “And I liked what the play talked about, which is old age and dying, and how you want to die, and are you going to

fight for what you want, even if it’s going to be a losing battle?” That sounds depressing, but “Velocity” has plenty of humorous moments that play to Parsons’ comedic strengths. (To younger audiences, she’s probably best known as Roseanne’s mother on the TV

When Dante Ferrando opened the Black Cat in 1993, 14th Street NW “wasn’t known for much,” he says, and its reputation was still dusty from the 1968 riots. That made it tough to get a turnout for the local bands and touring punk groups Ferrando intended the club to showcase.

We really didn’t make money. We struggled for quite a few years to keep the doors open. It was a hard neighborhood to do business in, get people to come to, and hard to get the word out, pre-Internet.

You’ve booked bands that got huge.

It’s funny. I’ll go back and look at a lineup from 1995 or so, and we had bands like Radiohead, Elastica, Korn. And yet none of those shows sold out at the club.

How have the neighborhood’s changes affected the club?

We get bar-hoppers now, which is not our usual clientele. But we don’t have to worry about people not wanting to come to the neighborhood for a show! Black Cat, 1811 14th St. NW; Fri. & Sat., 8 p.m., sold out; 202-667-7960, blackcatdc.com. (U Street)

Generally, though, the UCLAtrained Hanawalt, age “mediumyoung,” publishes work directly to her website, lisahanawalt.com. “Posting online gets me seen by art directors,” she says. “I wouldn’t advise someone else to try this approach, though, because the pay is infrequent and random.” As for profitable gigs, Hanawalt contributes to Random House’s Hazlitt site and recently illustrat-

Books What do dogs want? In the mind of Lisa Hanawalt, they yearn for salt licks in the shape of human legs and houses made of old fish. The Brooklyn illustrator and comic-book artist’s ideas always “start with something that happened in the real world,” says Hanawalt, who will appear at Bethesda’s Small Press Expo this weekend. “When I draw, I’ll start to riff on simple ideas or interactions I’ve had.” Sometimes, that’s reading Martha Stewart Living, which led to Hanawalt’s series “How We Can Tell Martha Stewart’s Drunk.” (Giveaways: “Bows tied in the toilet paper” or “biscotti in a big thing of vodka.”) Those pieces are compiled in Hanawalt’s new book, “My Dirty Dumb Eyes,” which is also full of the discomforting, entrancing half animal, half people she’s made her

Alternating Inspiration Volcano Choir, and the band’s most famous member, evolve in concert Music Bon Iver mastermind Justin Vernon has a lot of side projects — a blues-rock trio, a soft-rock group, his collaborations with Kanye West. Then there’s his band Volcano Choir. Without it, Bon Iver’s Grammy-winning second album might have sounded completely different. The bombastic, multilayered nature of 2011’s “Bon Iver, Bon Iver” — versus the folksy, cabin-in-the-woods sound of that band’s 2007 debut, “For Emma, Forever Ago” — is due, in part, to a brief Japanese tour Volcano Choir embarked on in 2010. Tom Wincek, who plays keys in Volcano Choir and contribut-

ed synth work to “Bon Iver, Bon Iver,” says the time Volcano Choir spent learning how to perform the oddly structured songs from its 2009 debut, “Unmap,” influenced how Vernon approached Bon Iver. “That was way before Justin started writing the ‘Bon Iver, Bon Iver’ album,” Wincek says. “A lot of that is super-bombastic, lots of heavy-hitting drums. I gotta think he was influenced by the process we went through. Obviously, the first [Bon Iver] album doesn’t sound like that. There’s a thread there.” The thread continues on Volcano Choir’s new album, “Repave,” which mines similar sonic territory as “Bon Iver, Bon Iver.” Volcano Choir dates back to 2005. That’s when guitarist Chris Rosenau, who, like the rest of the band (sans Vernon) is part of Milwaukee experimental group Collections of Colonies of Bees, began

working on tracks for Vernon — a fan and friend — to collaborate on. As Bon Iver blew up, Vernon and Rosenau sent chunks of music back and forth in an email collaboration. By 2009, they had enough

“He hasn’t changed one iota. … He’s the same weird dude we’ve known and been friends with.” — TOM W INCEK , ON VOLCANO CHOIR BANDMATE JUSTIN VERNON’S FAME

material for Volcano Choir’s first album, “Unmap,” a strange, patchwork collection of soundscapes. “It was an email record,” Rosenau says. “We were barely in the studio at all — except at the end to assemble the whole thing.” For “Repave,” which Rosenau

began working on in late 2010, the six-piece spent extra time in the studio crafting more traditional songs. The sound now echoes that of “Bon Iver, Bon Iver” — expansive, ethereal and epic, but with Vernon mostly ditching his falsetto to sing in a lower register. Another big difference: Unlike the long list of instruments Vernon picked up for that album, the only sounds he makes on “Repave” come from his vocal cords. As Volcano Choir embarks on its first large-scale U.S. tour, the process of learning songs for the stage has begun anew. And if history is any indication, the live shows could offer a preview of where Bon Iver — or at least Vernon — is headed. RUDI GREENBERG (E XPRESS)

The process usually starts with an email or application from an interested party. Next comes a phone conversation with Darman, and then, if things sound good, a face-toface meeting. Louis Kim and John Kim (no relation) have reached the meeting phase. They’re interested in opening a coffee shop in the city and need a space to test food recipes. The two gather with

Mix Well And Serve

Food Communities Meg Murray of Thunder Pig Confectionery is in need of a half-size baking sheet for her focaccia dough. She scurries from the second-floor space occupied by most of the bakers at Union Kitchen to the largest first-floor prep area to beg one off of Whisked baking assistant Kristen Hoffman, who is in the throes of slicing nearly 50 pounds of plums destined for 300 pies. Hoffman agrees to the loan. Murray does a little happy dance, which Hoffman playfully imitates. The members of Union Kitchen seem to get along so well that it’s easy to forget that a good number of them are competing with one another for a piece of Washington’s gourmet-food-scene pie. Union Kitchen, a commercial kitchen in a converted 7,300-square-foot NoMa warehouse, is an example of an

incubator — an economic structure that allows small businesses to get started without taking on enormous risks and costs of their own. Almost 50 small food businesses, including food trucks, caterers, bakers and charcuterie makers (there are a few non-food businesses as well), call Union Kitchen home. Communal commodities include everything from stainless-steel food-prep areas and 2,000-foot rolls of plastic wrap to two walk-in refrigerators and neatly stacked piles of cookware. Union Kitchen has been collecting members at a fairly rapid clip since its opening in December, and there’s still room for more, general manager Mike Darman says. Memberships start at $800 or $1,000 per month. Each member starts with two shelves of storage space, in refrigerators and freezers or elsewhere. Rent includes building maintenance, utilities and amenities such as linens, Wi-Fi and printing. “By slicing and dicing and bundling those things, we keep the overhead low” for the individual business-

es, Darman says. Members say pretty much the same thing: Setting up in Union Kitchen is cheaper than starting a facility from scratch. Darman says part of the facility’s success depends on “people’s willingness to work with each other.” Amazingly, there isn’t even a scheduling system in place. But don’t mistake the lack of regimented hours for disorganization. Darman and Union Kitchen’s co-owners, Jonas Singer and Cullen Gilchrist stay on top of the mundane, yet critical matters so that their members can concentrate on the food and growing their businesses. It’s an enthusiastically embraced business model for something that neither Gilchrist nor Singer envisioned when they started looking for space that would allow Gilchrist’s sister, Greer, to

A new iteration of a Baltimore institution lacks the charm

Baltimore’s original Chesapeake restaurant opened in 1933 and became famous for food that garnered a nod from the early American restaurant critic Duncan Hines. A fire in 1974 marked the beginning of the end for the 300-seat dining destination, which endured several foreclosures and auctions and eventually went dark in 1989. The new, 150-seat Chesapeake, which occupies only a slice of the former site, began welcoming diners in June. My companion from Charm City glanced at the menu, which counts ricotta gnocchi, shrimp and grits, and a vegan burger among the main dishes. “Nothing from the original but the name,” he said. And sighed. Owner Mauro Daigle says initial reaction to the second Chesapeake was “mixed,” but he’s quick to defend the new vision. The restaurateur says “there’s no market” for more fine-dining estab-

Chef Jordan Miller, 28, has fun with his “sn a c k s,” a me nu category that includes rosemary-spiked nuts tossed with zesty oyster crackers and “fries with eyes,” crackling, fingerlength fried smelt served with a tarragon-rich tartar sauce.

One of the few blasts from the past is a “snowball” cake, coconut cake with chocolate ganache and a blizzard of toasted coconut. But it, too, has been updated. Back in the day, no one ate the signature with cocoa sorbet. TOM SIETSEMA (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Outcast Carrie White is back in a remake of the 1976 horror classic “Carrie,” starring Chloe Grace Moretz, above. It hits theaters the same day as “The Fifth Estate,” in which Benedict Cumberbatch wears a frightful blond wig as part of his spooky Julian Assange costume. K.P.K.

FILM

Kicking off the winter blockbuster season is “Ender’s Game,” based on Orson Scott Card’s 1985 sci-fi novel. Ender is a student at a military boarding school in space, where gifted kids train to fight insectoid aliens in a brutal, intergalactic war. Ah, childhood memories. K.P.K.

Chris Hemsworth returns as the Hammered One, fresh off saving Earth in 2012’s “The Avengers.” Now, in “Thor: The Dark World,” it’s time to save both Asgard and Natalie Portman, because once you choose to wear a cape, you give up the right to a restful life. K.P.K.

10.04

What’s possibly the most terrifying trailer of all time sets up the story of “Gravity.” George Clooney and Sandra Bullock are working on a space station. Then something goes wrong. And if there’s one place you don’t want something to go wrong, it’s space, because AAA is notoriously unreliable when it comes to bailing you out when you’re orbiting Earth. Alfonso Cuaron, who was responsible for “Y Tu Mama Tambien” and “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban,” directs. K.P.K.

Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio reunite in “The Wolf of Wall Street,” based on the true story of Jordan Belfort. The 1990s high roller made a ton of money playing the stock market, then lost it all by being a criminal. Karma: taking away your ill-gotten gains since forever. K.P.K.

Spike Lee has always shown a talent for creating films with socio-political themes that challenge and engage their audience. His latest fictional project, “Oldboy,” is a remake of the phenomenal 2003 Korean film about a ticked-off guy who kills many people because he was unjustly placed in solitary confinement for 20 years.

A year ago, Bilbo Baggins got the ring, which should make the rest of his journey a lot easier, right? Of course not. “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” ended with a dragon’s eye popping open. That eye belongs to Smaug, as in “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.” Smaug’s likes include the Lonely Mountain, roasting dwarfs and treasure. His dislikes include everyone and everything that is not one of the above. Good luck, Bilbo! K.P.K.

Ron Burgundy takes New York in “Anchorman: The Legend Continues,” the sequel to possibly the most quotable movie, 2004’s “Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy.” Coming along in the glass case of emotion are his buddies from the first film, plus Harrison Ford, Liam Neeson, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, who are all people with whom we’d like to drink scotchy scotch scotch.

Sports Jeter Done for the Year

ALEX BRANDON (AP)

New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter will miss the rest of the season with an ankle injury, the team announced Wednesday. Jeter last played Saturday against Boston. He was removed for a pinch runner after hurting his left ankle, and although a CT scan was negative, Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said the shortstop will be shut down for the remainder of the year. Jeter started the year on the disabled list after breaking his left ankle in the 2012 playoffs. He returned to the DL twice more and played in only 17 games, batting .190 with one homer and seven RBIs. (AP)

Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III threw for a career-high 329 yards in Monday night’s loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.

RGIII Back to a Routine QB looking forward to moving on after passing the ‘hit test’ Redskins Robert Griffi n III had an eightmonth buildup to Week 1, contributing to much of the hype himself with his rehab-focused commercial and ESPN documentary. There’s only a one-week buildup to Week 2. And maybe that’s for the best. After a rusty, uneven performance in the Week 1 loss, it’s on to Sunday’s game against the Green Bay Packers. There won’t be a flashy entrance for Griffin at Lambeau Field. No making a spectacle of himself by running 100 yards with the Redskins flag during the line-

up introductions. And there’s relief that his surgically repaired right knee is fine. “Everyone was excited about it. ... The fact of the matter is we went through a hard offseason this year, not just me but this team,” Griffin said Wednesday. “And to get out of that game healthy, to move forward to the next week, I think that’s a big load off everybody’s shoulders.” Griffin said this will be a “more routine” week, with the team seeking to fix the mistakes that sealed the 33-27 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.

“I didn’t expect us to go out there and look phenomenal. This is the guy’s first game,” receiver Santana Moss said. “Every week he’s going to get better. We’re going to get better because we’re going to have more time together to mesh.” Griffin declined to cite the layoff as a factor in his first two-interception game as a pro, saying he’s not one to make excuses. He also said that those finding fault with his mechanics are looking with a biased eye because he’s coming off an injury. Physically, Griffin said he has “typical soreness from getting hit,” but that his knee feels fine. “I passed the hit test, got hit a lot,” he said. “I got hit every kind of way, too. I think that’s another huge relief for everybody, the coaches, players, myself.” JOSEPH WHITE (AP)

says. In her novel “Charming Billy,” which won the National Book Award in 1998, the Long Island locale “sets up a nice metaphor for yearning for someplace better, to leave the dirty city for someplace better to raise your children,” she says. McDermott, who turned 60 in June, is famously old-fashioned, writing initially with a pen on a pad and then transcribing her first few pages to a computer. Lately, she says, she has been “getting to the com-

Atlantic City is the setting for HBO’s Prohibition-era “Boardwalk Empire,” back for Season 4. Other networks should look at present-day Atlantic City: There’s material for many other TV shows! In April, I stayed at a grand old hotel that is today a bit threadbare. My room was nonsmoking but smelled of smoke. I called the front desk to complain. A slight, middle-aged man soon arrived, armed By Marc Silver with a spray bottle of generic air freshener. He sprayed everywhere. So the room smelled like cigarette smoke and pine trees! Idea for SNL character: the room-spray guy. Hotel guests had to show a room key to board the elevator. I asked an Atlantic City resident why. He said, “Well, you don’t want to come back to your room and find a hooker doing business in your bed.” Idea for series: “The Hooker in Your Hotel Room.” Each week, a couple returns to their Atlantic City suite and is surprised to find guess-who between the sheets. On the boardwalk, you can hire a human being to push you in a rolling chair. Idea for reality show: “Amazing Rolling Chair Races!” Read Marc’s previous columns at: readexpress.com/muse

Though Alice McDermott sets most of her fiction writing in New York, the author has been living in Maryland since 1989.

‘Someone’ Special Every life, no matter how mundane, has value to local author Alice McDermott Books Irish eyes are smiling. They belong to Alice McDermott, whose novels about ordinary Irish Catholic families living on her native Long Island strike universal themes of love, longing and loss. “Someone” ($25, Farrar, Straus and Giroux), her seventh novel, is

out this week. Like her other work, it elevates the ordinary into something special. Its message: Every life, however mundane, has value. Although McDermott’s work is deeply rooted in New York, she has been based mostly in Maryland since 1989. She raised her three children there and lives with her husband in Bethesda. As with her other fiction, “Someone” is set in New York. Location is important in her work, but only as a tool, “if I can make use of it to serve the larger purposes of the story, if it has a metaphorical benefit,” she

On the Novel You can dazzle readers with an intricate narrative, or, through small, rich, intimate scenes, you can reveal how it was to be part of a family, a neighborhood. You can inform a quiet narrative with compassion. This is the way Alice McDermott chose to write “Someone.” (T WP)

“I wouldn’t want to tweet to anyone who would be interested in my tweets.” puter faster and faster, transcribing almost daily.” She is, however, by no means an enthusiastic user of new technology. She emails, but she doesn’t tweet or use Facebook. Responding, belatedly, to a phone message, she writes in an email, “I am trying to cultivate the notion that constantly misplacing one’s cellphone is a charming eccentricity … my children aren’t buying it.” Nonetheless, she is a good soldier in the ever-evolving publishing trade. On a muggy summer day, she had spent the morning signing separate pages that would be “tipped” into copies of her new novel. She had been given 2,000 pages to sign, and by lunchtime, she was only a little more than halfway there. “This is a whole new thing, brainless, mind-numbing work,” she says, then smiles. “We all need a sense of humor in this profession.” EUGENE L. MEYER (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Album Review It’s unclear what exactly the Weeknd is so sad about. Since the release of his 2011 debut, “House of Balloons,” Abel Tesfaye’s anti-D.A.R.E. dirges have made him a Tumblrblog heartthrob and international avatar for indie-slanted soul music.

ies of last year’s “Trilogy,” a tripledisc collection of mix tapes originally offered for free on the Internet. Depending on your mathematics, “Kiss Land” is either his fourth album or first commercial release of original material. The album unravels as a series of uninteresting romantic seductions conducted over a monochrome-gray palette. There is menace but no drama. Nearly every narrative is devoted to a disembodied tryst between Tesfaye and an anonymous conquest. They typically fall into two catego-

tends to and lives among are on the outskirts of mainstream society, and their troubles — public and private — give Derek and his friends and coworkers, including Hannah (Kerry Godliman) and Dougie (Karl Pilkington), plenty to discuss, often in lurid detail. Like “The Office,” the series’ narrative structure is based on a documentary film, this time looking at the workings of a group home. As on “Extras,” a lot of “Derek” consists of commentary about television and, particularly, the reality

TV genre, Derek’s favorite. In “The Office,” “Extras” and “Life’s Too Short,” Gervais was never afraid to go for the offensive joke and the cruel observation, particularly about the vulnerable. Viewers may be a tad confused here. Is Gervais playing the mentally challenged Derek for sympathy or for laughs? Or both? That may be enough to put some off from watching the show. Of course, Gervais’ characters have always been designed to inf lict a great deal of provocative discomfort upon his audience. But some fans of his approach may never forgive Gervais for this series’ sentimentality. KE VIN McDONOUGH (UNIVERSAL UCLICK)

This makes him sad, but he copes with it by demanding their non-negotiable return. Spoiler alert: His pleas usually work. Then there are the girls he meets on tour, whom he treats with a wanton disregard usually found only in maritime sailors, pimp-rappers and disgraced politicians. On songs such as “Kiss Land,” you never learn their names or a single incidental detail. You just hear cliches about how they’re “too damn fly.” This doesn’t necessarily make him sad, but Tesfaye usually follows it up with a drug prescription that ensures his serotonin levels will never recover. It’s like listening to a diary of an R&B singer with Asperger’s syndrome, a bustling Snapchat account and a substance-abuse problem. Sex and seduction have never seemed so joyless or hollow. He wants your pity, but he’s not sure why. JEFF WEISS (THE WASHINGTON POST)

“The iPhone 5c’s case looks a lot like Crocs shoes.” — MATTHEW PANZARINO AT TECHCRUNCH.COM tries to not vomit

in his mouth after seeing the case that Apple released to go with its new iPhone 5C. The silicone case sports a pattern of 35 holes on the back, obscures Apple’s logo and exposes too much of the “ugly regulatory text” on the back of the phone, Panzarino said. (A leather case is available for the fancier — and pricier — iPhone 5S.)
