TIGER’S 2 YEAR Local Music Guide Event + between Gallery Listening and Artists You Need to Know

Fiddlehead by Zack Rogers

It’s me again! Switching from a feature on Tiger King in Folio’s print issue to this digital issue’s cover story on Tiger Records has been comical. A co-worker even commented on my tiger tattoo stating, “That’s crazy because, you know: Tiger King.” Truth be told, my tattoo is not a symbol of love for Joe Exotic but actually for a tribute to Parquet Courts’ album Sunbathing Animal. Tiger Records is celebrating its two-year anniversary this month. If vinyl had really ever left, it’s back. And the vaccine has pressed play on the previously paused live music scene. It’s not trust-fund babies spending daddy’s money on vinyls they could easily download into their airpods or Elon Musk brain chip moving the music either…it’s baristas, pizza boys, bike couriers, underpaid creatives, unemployed-ers and hungry musicians. James Siboni, who owns Tiger Records, said, “I hope the future is a lot like the last two years have been: great music, friends and conversations in a great community.” Music can be and is the tie between all walks of life, and maybe if we keep progressing we can fill in the blank on this stupid meme with “MUSICAL”!

With you I leave a blip of the most recent newsletter from Jacksonville Music Experience (sign up & follow if you want to read the best musicians and writers in Jacksonville), headlined with the phrase “Music is Essential (insert star emoji)” written by the Director of Arts & Culture, Matt Shaw: “Years later, I was teaching part-time in San Francisco while my now-wife attended law school. Given our financial situation, there were few activities in that expensive city that I could partake in. But at least one day each month, I’d ride the N-Train to the top of the Haight Ashbury district, kicking off a few hours worth of crate digging at the sprawling Amoeba Records before pillaging the one- and two-dollar bins at Groove Merchant or Rasputin’s and foraging for obscure soul and jazz albums at Rooky Ricardo’s or Grooves. If little else, I figured, we might as well have music in our 500 square-foot apartment.” P.S. I pitched a new logo and it got approved yesterday!! This is the first place you’ll see it. Can’t wait for the love and hate mail. Love u xoxo Rain Henderson

who have been greatly impacted by the pandemic. The local theater community is one group that has been hit hardest. Between having to shut down completely then adapting to various CDC guidelines, it has been difficult to put on a play. Remaining open is now their biggest task. Players by the Sea has been operating for over 50 years and is a volunteer-based organization. The actors, backstage crew, set designers and others donate their time and talents out of a passion for the theater. According to their website, Players by the Sea “reimagined new experiences for [their] patrons and students, including virtual education initiatives like [their] New Voices program, and streaming events” as a result of the pandemic. In addition to live theatrical productions, Players by the Sea also offers classes, summer camps and workshops and hosts art exhibitions, providing an outlet for anyone interested in the fine arts to explore their passions and develop their skills. PBTS staff also made sure that when the doors did reopen, the environment would be a healthy and safe place for guests to go. They even produced a play that was streamed online so audience members did not have to leave home. This year, the theater was able to start up live shows again while introducing new restrictions and guidelines to follow while inside, such as requesting audience members to keep their masks on at all times.

Though the theater has reopened its doors, Players by the Sea’s mission is still being threatened. It is the funding from ticket sales, donations and sponsors that helps run the facility, its shows and other programs, but between closing the doors and many people losing their jobs, the money coming in to fund the theater decreased. Recently, I took the opportunity to attend a production of Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street at Players by the Sea in Jacksonville Beach. Prior to the performance, PBTS’ artistic director Jerome Rackett addressed the audience personally about the struggles the theater has been having. With the fear of having to shut down permanently looming, Rackett encouraged attendees to spread the word about Players by the Sea and the importance of supporting community theater. It is his hope that more light drawn on the theater and their work in the community can bring in more guests so that they (and other local theater groups) no longer have to worry about going dark forever. It would be heart-breaking for locals and other surrounding areas alike to lose an

As the 67th fattest city in the country, according to WalletHub, Jacksonville knows a few things about food. The fact that burgers, wings, pizza, fried chicken and/or tacos are practically mandated on local menus probably has something to do with that. But anyone who takes the time to explore the culinary landscape will undoubtedly discover dishes that are far more interesting—and creative—not that the previously mentioned delicious foods can’t be interesting and creative, of course. With cuisines spanning the globe (still waiting on that Icelandic restaurant, though), the food scene in the River City truly is a melting pot. Not having any chefs or anyone who identifies as a “foodie” (whatever that means) on the staff, we wouldn’t deign to identify the best restaurants in Jacksonville. We do, however, love to eat. And we have a lot of opinions. That said, we hereby present to you a starter list of some of our personal favorite restaurants. Consider it an appetizer with more courses to come.

Giving Thanks to Those Who Cook…So We Don’t Have to Rob Nicholson

The traditions of Thanksgiving dinner haven’t gone away completely, but the world has certainly changed and more than anyone would have thought. The days of spending several days in the kitchen to get ready for a meal that most people can eat in 15–20 minutes have been falling by the wayside for years and now even more so. Fortunately, retailers, restaurateurs and caterers realize the need and offer fully-prepared meals you just heat and eat. As expected, offerings vary but typically are served family style. Some packages can be personalized and even include dessert. Most can be ordered online or by phone, just do it ASAP because Thanksgiving will be here before you know it. For those of you, who do decide to carry on the tradition of a homemade meal and need to make a list-minute trip to the grocery store, we included their holiday hours, as well. And if you don’t see your favorite restaurant on the list, ask if they are doing Thanksgiving to-go meals.

FALL MOVIE REVIEW Reviews by Harry Moore

After a summer movie season with a somewhat limited number of releases, in comparison to years past, the fall promises to be full of exciting releases both in theaters and at home.

Paper Gallery ART I S T REVI EW


ANA BOULINEAU Folk artist Ana Boulineau’s eerie, dreary paintings suggest innocence and despair. They made their first appearance as a visual artist at Folio’s Paper Gallery last month in five paintings, a series that represented the course of a day in Boulineau’s life. It was their first time out in almost two years: “It was a lot to take in after being a vermin for so long,” they said. Boulineau was born an artist. They have been drawing since childhood, but their primary medium of expression was poetry – until it wasn’t. “I didn’t start painting until around this time last year, like October/November 2020,” said Boulineau. “I had a lot going on at the time, and I had really bad writer’s block, so I was like, ‘I'm just gonna try and paint.’” Artistically, Boulineau had always been into the masters like Francisco Goya, which certainly inspired the shadows in their work. The pressure from a rigid standard of what “good art” was, especially being self-trained, kept them from pursuing painting. “I held myself hostage with that standard for a long time. It was me trying to do that,” said Boulineau. It wasn’t until they started studying mid-century folk art that their vision really came through. “When I started doing it for the sake of painting and doing whatever came to mind, it took on its own thing.” The works tell a story of emotional dysregulation, black-and-white-thinking, and emptiness: a muddied view of a kitchen table, recalling a trauma, piecing together childhood memories, slipping into a dark place at the end of the day. “Painting is a way for me to express what I can’t say with words when I'm in a hole,” Boulineau said. Find their art on Instagram at a_parade_for_fish.


EDDIE CASTRO Though street-style photography and the midst of rural Florida may seem like an impossible match, film photographer Eddie Castro marries the two seamlessly with his Middle Florida series, presented at October’s Paper Gallery. Castro has been shooting film since age 17. He got his first roll developed at Fototechnika, where he now works. He uses the medium in all of his photography, from his work with local clothing label Bonsoir, the Black Beach exhibition, and Sunday Football Club. He also has series shot in Puerto Rico and California. “There's a tangible feeling with film. Doing things with your hands feels better than plugging it in,” said Castro, who is intimately involved with every part of the film process. “Processing it with your hands, making prints, it just feels more authentic. The concept for his latest series struck this summer as he helped his sister move down to Tampa. On the way there and in subsequent trips around rural Florida, he shot the colorful, spacious photographs that would go on to make Middle Florida. “Driving there, I just hadn’t realized how interesting that part of Florida is,” Castro said. “Most street photographers, being in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, they have to commute by foot. They have their camera on them, they see what the city has to offer them. Here, if you're commuting by foot, it's not really worth it.” It put street-style photography on a scale wide and slow, getting to his subjects in a car instead of on foot, with open skies in the background rather than tall buildings. He captured a gas station on A1A outside of Daytona, a movie theater in Starke, a classic Florida car in Palatka, a cow in an unincorporated town near Macclenny, and a friend on an old car west of Jacksonville. Find his work on or on instagram at eddiercastro.


LIZ HARTLESS Though film photographer Liz Hartless has a casually cheerful demeanor, their work is melancholic and intense, exploring themes of identity, space, and time in portraits. The untitled series that Hartless displayed at Paper Gallery is a string of self-portraits posing as different characters. Hartless has been shooting 35mm for four years. She started with taking candid photographs of her friends, which soon became the poignant portraits in her portfolio today. The untitled series came about after Hartless saw Cindy Sherman’s untitled series in New York. Using obscured lighting and wigs in a variety of sets, they created a system of alters that tell a story much bigger than the prints themselves. “A lot of them breed chaos and uneasiness,” said Hartless. They each put the viewer in surreal spaces straight out of the Twilight Zone: walking into an elevator to someone with a finger on a button and their face not far behind. A somber shower scene. A shrouded, vaguely sexual figure on a windowsill. Before a swinging baseball bat. On a couch in a barren apartment. The photographs are impressive not only for the feelings they evoke, but for the way they were shot on self-timer on a medium that can’t be looked at until it’s developed. Hartless, in fact, develops film herself in a small closet that was converted into a darkroom. “I love developing and printing film. That's my favorite part,” they said. “I sit in this really tiny closet I put a pillow in. I sit on my pillow, I get all frustrated in the dark. My hands are sweaty trying to bottle open this film, making sure there's no light leakage, turning all the lights off in my house.” Hartless plans to start a red room to start printing film again.
