in the first half of that decade Paul Zansler stands outas carefree and party-oriented. side what previously was He and his friends frequented the site of Rubyfruit Jungle, spaces like Cafe Lafitte in a bar he frequented as a teenager. Exile, the Country Club and the Bourbon Pub & Parade — all of which are still on the scene. It wasn’t until one of his friends opened his eyes to the AIDS crisis in the mid-1980s that Talluto noticed the atmosphere becoming more serious, although there was still revelry. “Until 1987, I was just hanging out with my friends and having a good time,” he says. “Once AIDS became a reality for the community, we tried to do something about it. I got involved in fundraisers. Project Lazarus’ Halloween function was started by a handful of guys who donated their own money for this fundraiser. It turned into this huge party.” Paul Zansler’s first memory of Pride was trying to get his mother to drop him off a few blocks away from the parade. “We were driving up to Washington Square Park, and I’m like, ‘I can get out here!’” Zansler says. His mother sighed, “I know you’re going to the parade. Just tell me where to drop you off.’” Zansler, 36, an interior designer who grew up in Metairie and came out at 15 in 1993, had a slightly different path to the larger LGBT community. He was first accepted as gay in a youth group at Munholland United Methodist Church in Metairie. Through the group, he made contact with other LGBT teenagers in the suburbs and they carpooled to the LGBT Community Center in downtown New Orleans. “The main area was the Quarter, but there were other offshoots like the Coffee Bean because generally, at 16, you’re going to coffeeshops. You’re sneaking into bars,” Zansler says. He says he and his friends frequented the Bourbon Pub and the now-defunct lesbian bar Rubyfruit Jungle — due to its lax ID policy. “In New Orleans, we aren’t so much proud as we are shameless,” says Aesha Rasheed, an Oklahoma transplant and massage therapist who also works in education reform. Rasheed, 37, didn’t come out until after moving to New Orleans in 2000. Her first introduction to LGBT venues in the Crescent City was in what she refers to as the “Fruit Loop” — the gay men’s

he oldest public celebration of New Orleans gay life, New Orleans Pride, may be overshadowed by the outlandishness of Southern Decadence, but the celebration has been held on and off for the last 43 years. While still a party atmosphere, Pride has more of an eye toward activism and education than Decadence. According to Chris Leonard, director of New Orleans Pride, the festival’s mission is “to create an atmosphere where lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people can be proud of their sexual orientation and gender identity and to celebrate and promote history along with future prosperity of not only the New Orleans area, but the entire Gulf Coast region.” Marky Brisset, 49, who owns Construction Labor Contractors, remembers Pride’s early days and says straight people and tourists alike have warmed to the festival and parade since it began in her childhood. “When it first started, they didn’t want to see [it],” she says. “Bourbon Street would almost be empty. Now it’s packed.” Brisset has been involved in the LGBT community since the 1970s, when, while making mischief in the French Quarter as an adolescent, she first encountered Rosemary “Mama” Pino, a pioneer in the New Orleans lesbian community. Pino and her partner Margie Normand owned and operated gay bars throughout the city, including Pino’s, De Ja Vu, the Grog, the Blue Odyssey and Club 621. “Mama [Pino] grabbed me by the ear and said ‘What are you doing?” Brisset says. “And later she turns to Margie and says, ‘This kid is the future of our community.’” Brisset has established herself as a sort of heir to Pino, a den mother and mentor to a new generation of lesbians throughout the city. In the 41 years since Brisset entered the scene, she has noticed many changes — most of them for the better, she says. “We were definitely more closeted in the ’70s,” Brisset says. “I would see gay guys getting jumped. If you wore a flannel shirt as a female in the ’70s, you weren’t getting home without getting your ass kicked. By the time the ’80s got here, people were more outward, more coming out, more standing their ground. When somebody was beating up a gay guy, another guy would run and get help. In the ’80s you took your ass-whupping and kept moving forward.” Craig Talluto, 51, a clinical researcher now living in Boston, grew up in New Orleans in the 1980s and remembers the community

bar circuit in the French Quarter in the blocks around the Bourbon Pub. “My introduction to queer or gay spaces was really men’s bars because I went to the Pub,” Rasheed says. “I was often the only female-bodied or woman-identified person in our little set of people. I loved the gay men’s bars and I had a great time, but my relationship to them was not my home.” In addition to the Fruit Loop, Rasheed and her friends frequented Rainbow in Metairie and Kims 940, a now-defunct lesbian bar in the Faubourg Marigny. She also joined an LGBT book club to meet more lesbians. She says gender was not the only isolating factor in her introduction to the community. “When I first was coming out, [the community] was not inclusive at all,” she says. “I’m excited about this younger queer community that’s happening that does seem to be more consciously embracing and creating spaces that really do integrate folks across genders, across race. But I think there’s a tendency towards whiteness in all the queer spaces.” Rasheed says she has an “on-again, off-again relationship” with Pride festivities, working at tables some years or forgetting about it entirely other years. “It doesn’t feel like an organic expression of the queer community in this city as much as there’s a date on a calendar and we have to do something for it like Memorial Day or something,” Rasheed says.

The Bourbon Pub & Parade, located at the corner of Bourbon and St. Ann streets, is one of the major anchors of the LGBT social scene in New Orleans and many members of the community who have been around since it opened in the mid-1970s have some sort of connection to, or story about, the bar. Brisset says she has been going to the Pub since it was called the Caverns. Her friend Jerry Menefee bought the bar in the early 1970s and it opened on Halloween 1975. “[Menefee] and I were standing out there and he looked at me and he smiled and said ‘Look at the fags on that balcony,’” Brisset says. “Then the fire department showed up and pulled all these people off the balcony and out the bar.” Zansler says he first went to the Pub with straight friends at 16. “It was absolutely frightening because it’s like, ‘Wait, oh my God, this is the community,’” he says. “Not bad frightening, but it was frightening in the sense of ... a kid’s first dance or something like that.” Talluto says he met most of his friends in New Orleans at the Pub. “I went to Catholic school my whole life and didn’t have a lot of friends because I was different from most people I grew up with, and it was exciting to realize there were so many people like me,” he says. Zansler, who spent 12 years in New York before returning to New Orleans last year, says that while the gay men’s bars he remembers continue to thrive, the landscape has shifted due to the

development of Internet dating and smartphone hookup apps. “Pub-Parade, Oz, Ninth Circle, 700 Club, Golden Lantern, Lafitte’s, they have been there 20-plus years,” Zansler says. “It is not as crowded now, but I’m sure that has more to do with how people are meeting more so than that these bars have physically changed. ... It’s the ‘order-in syndrome,’ I guess you could say.” Things have changed even more significantly for gay women. Since Rubyfruit Jungle closed in 2012, there are no more bars in New Orleans catering directly to a lesbian clientele. “Once upon a time on Rampart Street ... there was four or five lesbian bars. Now we don’t have anywhere to go,” Brisset says. “Mama Pino and Margie Normand paved the way for us, opened it up for us. These women fought so hard and so long for us to be free so we could have a wide variety of places to be free. But girl bars don’t make it.” Brisset says she and her network of friends often settle on going to one of the gay men’s bars, or even straight venues like the Cat’s Meow or Balcony Bar & Cafe, though the gay men’s bars aren’t always as welcoming to lesbians as the straight bars are, according to Brisset. She recently returned to the Bourbon Pub for the first time in several months and experienced hostility from some of the clientele. “One of them says, ‘Look, there’s a lesbian in here. Why can’t they go to their own bar?’” Brisset says. “I’m like, ‘I’ve been frequenting this bar since I’m 11 years old. Who do you think you are?’” Rasheed says one alternative for lesbians in New Orleans is semi-regular takeovers of other venues. This includes DIY music events, the Deep Lez dance party at Big Daddy’s Bar and pop-up event GrrlSpot.

A walking group promotes acceptance during New Orleans Pride 2013.

“The idea is like we take over a bar,” she says. “We just show up. When [GrrlSpot] started, we would just show up, like a flash mob. It was like ‘Pick a bar. We’ll all go there. Boom. There we are. Then it got so big they started to have to be like, ‘We should tell the bar we’re coming’ because it’s a sudden influx of 70 women.” Rasheed thinks these sorts of events may not last. “My fear for those spaces is because they’re so youth-oriented is that they may not be sustainable because of that, like people will just get older and be like ‘I’m tired of going out,’” Rasheed says. “Either you pass the torch or not.” She is optimistic about the progressive political renaissance and newfound activism happening in New Orleans’ LGBT social spaces, saying that LGBT nights out have to be more than “I go and I drink and I sing.” “I’m not saying that’s not worth it, but we were not connected to the reason why queer spaces are necessary,” she says. “Unpacking the ways in which we are and aren’t privileged at this point is really important, and I really appreciate that people are not just focused on questions of marriage rights or questions of just as long as we get ours. ... I think that’s really important and refreshing about what’s happening in New Orleans and happening across the South at this point.” Brisset hopes that the conversations about what it means to be LGBT in New Orleans continue beyond Pride weekend. “[Pride] unites people and brings them together, but it only does it for a day. It only does it for a weekend,” she says. “We need to feel pride all year long.”

New Orleans Pride will be celebrated June 20-22. The main event, the Pride Parade, rolls at 7 p.m. June 21. It will begin at New Orleans City Hall and go through the French Quarter into the Faubourg Marigny, ending on Elysian Fields Avenue.

NEWS VIEWS SCUTTLEBUTT Quote of the week

“He told me, ‘Vote no and you will get a $1,200 check from the Heritage Foundation. If you vote yes, you will get a $1,000 check from some environmental impact group.’ … I voted no, and I didn’t get a Heritage Foundation check, but he did. I went back and checked with my friend, ‘I didn’t get a check, man. What were you talking about?’ He told me, ‘Well, I got one. Why didn’t you?’” — U.S. Rep. Vance McAllister, R-Swartz, as quoted in a Ouachita Citizen story headlined “McAllister Admits to Vote for Contribution.” McAllister made the remark at a meeting at the University of Louisiana-Monroe, but says he wasn’t looking for the contribution — merely attempting to point out how money influences politics in Washington.

Jindal signs abortionprovider bills Women’s health clinics expected to close

Following a June 12 press conference at First Baptist Church in West Monroe, Gov. Bobby Jindal signed into law a bill that requires abortion providers to have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals, effectively shuttering several clinics statewide. The bill mirrors similar legislation in Texas, where doctors who provide abortions must have admitting privileges to a hospital within a 30-mile radius of their clinics. In less than a year following its passage, 14 of Texas’ 36 clinics closed. Alabama, Mississippi and Oklahoma have passed or are considering similar legislation.

Louisiana may see more power in the U.S. House of Representatives if U.S. Rep. Steve Scalise, R-Jefferson, is successful in his bid this week to become House Majority Whip. (See Clancy DuBos’ column, p. 15) The unexpected defeat of U.S House Majority Leader Eric Cantor in a June 10 GOP primary in Virginia, and Cantor’s announcement that he would be stepping down from the job next month, created a leadership vacuum in the Republican wing of the House. U.S. Rep. Kevin McCarthy of California, the current whip, is expected to succeed Cantor, leaving the whip job open. Scalise served three terms in the Louisiana House of Representatives before running for Congress in 2007 and has cruised to re-election twice. He currently chairs the Republican Study Committee, a large conservative House caucus that counts among its members U.S. Rep. John Fleming, R-Minden, as well as high-profile GOP stars such as U.S. Reps. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota, Steve King of Iowa and Cantor. Scalise also has been a highly effective fundraiser and recruiter for Republican House candidates. Elections for House majority leader and whip will be held June 19. — KEVIN ALLMAN

ing sex education materials to schools. In a statement, Jindal said the legislation will “advance the dignity of human life and the safety and well being of women and children.” While the administrator for clinics in New Orleans and Baton Rouge is attempting to obtain admitting privileges, clinics in Metairie and Bossier City may be forced to close for lack of them. Only one clinic in Louisiana — one of two clinics in Shreveport — has a doctor with admitting privileges, but, as evidenced by similar laws enacted in Texas and lawsuits that followed, some doctors with admitting privileges could lose them. The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and the American Medical Association have opposed similar legislation in Texas and found “no medical basis” for requiring admitting privileges. In a statement, Planned Parenthood Federation of America president Cecile Richards said, “Ignoring the protest of women’s health experts, Governor Jindal is subjecting doctors who provide abortion to targeted restrictions under the guise of improving patient safety, despite the fact that abortion is already one of the safest medical procedures in the country.” She added that “What is happening in Louisiana is part of a dangerous national trend … where a woman’s ability to make personal medical decisions without interference from politicians will be dependent upon where she happens to live. That cannot be what the Supreme Court intended when it established a woman’s right to safe and legal abortion more than 40 years ago.” Jindal also signed House Bill 305 by state Rep. Frank Hoffman, R-West Monroe, which prohibits clinics and groups like Planned Parenthood from distributing sex education or reproductive health information to schools. In a statement, Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast’s Louisiana director Melissa Flournoy said, “It makes no sense that the same politicians, like Governor Jindal, who want to end safe and

legal abortion in this state also want to restrict the ability of our youth to get sex education from the leading experts in the field. … These laws will harm, not help, women and families in our state.” — ALEX WOODWARD

Landrieu on Charity: Never mind

Civic center plans dropped for lack of funds After years of advocating the redevelopment of the old Charity Hospital building into a new civic center that would bring City Hall and Orleans Parish Civil District Court under one roof, Mayor Mitch Landrieu dropped the plan last week, saying in a statement, “We cannot afford the project at this time.” Landrieu cited two reasons for dropping the project: Gov. Bobby Jindal and state lawmakers were unwilling to put up the $100 million he had requested to rehab Charity and construction cost estimates had grown from $270 million to nearly $400 million. Civil District Court judges, led by then-Judge Michael Bagneris, had opposed the plan, saying permanent walls and other obstructions inside Charity would prevent the building from meeting modern courtroom standards. The judges preferred a plan to build a new, stand-alone courthouse in Duncan Plaza across from City Hall. Bagneris stepped down last December to challenge Landrieu in the February mayoral election. With Landrieu dropping the Charity project, it’s unclear what will become of the iconic building, which has stood vacant since Hurricane Katrina and the federal floods in 2005 — or if the city will take up new plans to move out of the dilapidated City Hall complex, which was built in the 1950s. City Hall and Civil District Court now sit on a stretch of Loyola Avenue that has seen major redevelopment in recent years, including a new streetcar line, the rebuilding of the Hyatt Regency New Orleans and the new South Market District, which is under construction. — KEVIN ALLMAN


COMMENTARY

thinking out loud

Important legislative victories he recently concluded legislative session will likely be remembered for Gov. Bobby Jindal’s signature on Senate Bill 469, which delighted Big Oil but could harm Louisiana for years to come. Overall, the headline-grabbing disappointments in Baton Rouge obscured some important victories this year. We have written extensively on lawmakers’ and Jindal’s shameless moves to protect the energy industry from having to pay for its share (and only its share) of the damage done to our coast. We’ve also criticized their support of anti-abortion bills that masqueraded as measures to protect women’s health. Now we’d like to shed some light on positive developments — yes, there were some — during the recent session. Lawmakers enacted a slew of laws against human trafficking. Jindal supported these measures and made them part of his otherwise light agenda this year. Among them were several bills to increase the penalties for human trafficking in Louisiana and to ensure the protection of victims. To his credit, Jindal also agreed to increase state funding for training law

Morrell and Moreno deserve recognition for shepherding these bills, but the real push to pass them came from women leaders of the United Way of Southeast Louisiana, who trekked to Baton Rouge almost daily to buttonhole lawmakers in support of the measures. Morrell also secured passage of Senate Bill 296, which sets a hard deadline of Jan. 1, 2015, for criminal justice agencies to inventory their untested DNA collection kits related to sexual assault crimes and to submit that information to the Louisiana State Police crime lab. By March 1, 2015, the lab must submit a report to lawmakers revealing the total number of untested rape kits in the state — with breakdowns by parish and law enforcement agency. With a clearer picture of the number of untested rape kits sitting in police crime labs, Louisiana can determine just how big that backlog is — and take steps to eliminate it. Morrell’s Senate bill, which Jindal has signed into law, has the potential for major criminal justice reform by providing a framework for holding agencies accountable for untested DNA kits.

The real push to pass domestic violence reforms came from women leaders of the United Way of Southeast Louisiana. Kitty Pack Plus

Rep. Walt Leger, D-New Orleans, again authored — and passed — legislation to secure permanent funding for New Orleans’ casino-related support services. The state promised long ago to pay the city $3.6 million a year for providing police, fire, sanitation and other services to Harrah’s Casino, and for six straight years Leger passed bills to establish a permanent source for that money — only to see Jindal veto them all. The seventh time was the charm. Jindal signed Leger’s House Bill 389 last month. The measure creates a dedicated fund to send $3.6 million a year to the city, with another $60 million set aside for schools. Finally, despite passing a bill specifically written to allow truck stop owner Michael Sandlin to keep his Bengal tiger as a roadside attraction at the Tiger Truck Stop in Grosse Tete, lawmakers also passed some significant animal welfare legislation. Jindal signed a bill sponsored by Morrell that strengthens the state’s cockfighting ban, which originally passed in 2008 but had loopholes that prevented real enforcement. Sen. Elbert Guillory, R-Opelousas, got nationwide press (none of it flattering) for trying to exclude “chicken boxing” from the bill. He failed, and Louisiana has finally banned the inhumane “sport” — though it’s the last state to do so.

enforcement to better identify and combat trafficking. Rep. Neil Abramson, D-New Orleans, pushed passage of House Bill 1025, which permits courts to seize and sell assets directly related to the crime of human trafficking, with proceeds going into the Exploited Children’s Special Fund. House Bill 569, by Rep. Julie Stokes, R-Kenner, allows district courts to assign human trafficking cases to special divisions of court. State Sen. J.P. Morrell and Rep. Helena Moreno, both Democrats from New Orleans, sponsored the most comprehensive domestic violence reforms ever adopted in Louisiana, ushering through seven bills to better protect victims and increase penalties for offenders. The two lawmakers worked successfully with the National Rifle Association — a feat in its own right — to prevent convicted domestic abusers from possessing firearms while special protective orders are pending. One of Moreno’s bills created the Domestic Violence Prevention Commission within the Department of Children and Family Services to find holes in the law and draft appropriate legislation for upcoming sessions to better protect victims. This was an ambitious and long overdue slate of bills that will do more to protect women and families than any restrictions on abortion providers.

The fountain near Lake Terrace subdivision, built in the 1960s by Cimini & Meric Architects, has been turned off until repairs are made.

Hey Blake,

There’s a structure inside the traffic circle at the entrance to Lake Terrace where Lakeshore Drive meets Paris Avenue. It looks like a fountain. Are there plans to repair it? Kathi Barker

Dear Kathi,

There used to be a mural depicting Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on the background of a city map on the corner of Oretha Castle Haley and Martin Luther King boulevards. The mural was attached to the side of a building right behind the bus stop. A few months ago, work began on the building and the mural was removed. Where is it now? Art lover

CHIPPENDALES JUNE 20 & 21

Dear Art lover,

The building at 1427 Oretha Castle Haley Blvd., once a furniture store, has been transformed into “The Building at 1427 O.C. Haley.” When renovating the building, owners Christian and Connie Labat removed the two murals painted by artist Bruce “Shakur” White. The one facing Martin Luther King Boulevard honored the legacy of King and explained the contribution of internationally renowned sculptor Frank Hayden, who created an unusual oval sculpture on the neutral ground across the street in 1976, when that space was dedicated as Martin Luther King Walk. Hayden, a Xavier University graduate, was a professor at Southern University in Baton Rouge. The mural that was on the Oretha Castle Haley Boulevard side of the building was titled Defend the Peace. A third mural, this one depicting a Mardi Gras Indian, remains on the Martin Luther King Boulevard side of the building. Display windows have been installed where the murals used to be and passersby now can see local artists’ works on display inside. The Labats say the two Shakur murals are in a secure place. Possible plans for the murals have been discussed, including one to display them on the third floor of the building. Connie Labat says the renovated building will feature live music, films and theater — and will always have art displayed.

The Lake Terrace subdivision, built in 1953, is bounded by Lakeshore Drive, the London Avenue Canal, Robert E. Lee Boulevard and Bayou St. John. Lake Terrace has an active neighborhood association and several parks and playgrounds. It also has the concrete fountain you mentioned. Built in the mid-1960s, the fountain was a project of the Orleans Levee Board, a state agency that supported a major initiative in 1962 involving flood protection, land development and beautification of the lakefront area. Also on Lakeshore Drive is the iconic Mardi Gras Fountain, which was built in 1962 as part of that initiative. Mardi Gras Fountain was heavily damaged in Hurricane Katrina, but repairs were completed last summer. It has several jets of water and ceramic plaques that pay tribute to nearly 100 old and new Mardi Gras krewes. The Lake Terrace Fountain continued to be operational after Katrina, although many homes in the area were damaged in the storm. It currently is shut down, however, because it has some cracks in its pool and the electrical system needs to be repaired. The Orleans Levee Board has requested estimates for the work, but the fountain won’t be restored until funds are secured.

Steve Scalise and the Butterfly Effect

SOCCER WATCH PARTY HQ U.S. Rep. Steve Scalise faces several rivals for the House Majority Whip post, but his credentials stack up well against theirs.

a group of more than 170 conservative GOP House members, and he spent the last election cycle recruiting and fundraising for new Republican congressional candidates. That kind of work pays dividends in situations such as this. Moreover, the RSC comprises more than 70 percent of the Republican caucus. That appears to give Scalise a real edge. One of his rivals for Whip, however, is also a member of the RSC — U.S. Rep. Marlin Stutzman of Indiana. Also running is Deputy Whip Peter Roskam of Illinois. Even if he does not win the Whip post, Scalise is widely seen as a rising star in the GOP-controlled House. Louisiana’s 1st Congressional District ranks among the safest in Congress, and Scalise’s predecessors in the job have included some influential figures. The late F. Edward Hebert chaired the House Committee on Armed Services in the 1970s, and former U.S. Rep. Bob Livingston was tapped to be House Speaker before a Clinton-era sex scandal prompted his resignation in 1999. We’ll know in a few days if the Butterfly Effect brought on by Cantor’s unlikely defeat will propel Scalise into the vortex of the tsunami that is Washington’s inner circle. One thing he might want to bear in mind as he campaigns: The Butterfly Effect has its origins in something called chaos theory. Having spent the last five-plus years inside the Beltway, Scalise should be more than ready to cross that threshold.

he wellworn axiom that a butterfly flapping its wings in the rain forest causes a tsunami on the other side of the planet may or may not be true in nature, but it often holds true in politics. Just ask Congressman Steve Scalise, R-Jefferson. Scalise is currently considered a frontrunner for the House Majority Whip position, thanks to GOP voters in Virginia’s 7th Congressional District. Last week, those voters dumped Majority Leader Eric Cantor, the second-highest ranking Republican in the House, in favor of a little-known economics professor who spent a small fraction of the millions that Cantor and his supporters poured into the primary. If you’re wondering, the name of the butterfly in this story is David Brat, a 49-year-old professor at Randolph-Macon College in Ashland, Virginia. The day after Brat upset Cantor in Virginia’s primary, Cantor announced he would step down as Majority Leader on July 31. That triggered a race for his successor, and the clear frontrunner is the current Majority Whip, U.S. Rep. Kevin McCarthy, R-California, If McCarthy runs for Majority Leader as expected, it opens a race for Whip, and that’s where Scalise enters the picture. GOP House members, who currently hold a majority, will meet behind closed doors this Thursday, June 19, to elect their new leaders. That vote could have profound implications for Louisiana if Scalise wins the No. 3 spot in the House. “To move our country forward in the right direction, it will require effective leadership and the ability to unite the Republican conference around bold conservative solutions,” Scalise says. “The job of Whip is more than just a vote counter. I have a strong record of bringing substantive policy ideas to the leadership table and building coalitions to address problems and unite our conference.” Scalise’s chances are not far-fetched. He faces several rivals, but his credentials stack up well against theirs. For the past 18 months, Scalise has chaired the Republican Study Committee (RSC),

YOUR BILLS Lester Carey painted the sign outside Three Star Barber Shop on Felicity Street.

Carey was born in New Orleans in 1953. He attended the University of New Orleans and tried out for football at Louisiana State University. He didn’t make the cut. He studied commercial art at Delgado, and from 1976 to 1989, he served in the Army, the Army Reserves and the Army National Guard. By the early ’80s, he had carved out a living painting signs for neighborhood businesses. When he returned to New Orleans after evacuating to San Antonio, Texas,

following the 2005 levee failures, Carey found he had lost his home and steady work. Since then, he has been in and out of Veterans Affairs health programs and regular housing. He still earns a meager income from painting businesses and meat board specials at deli counters. Anthony DelRosario, a Tulane University student pursuing a masters degree in preservation studies, drives from his Lower Garden District home to meet Carey at his spot on the MLK neutral ground. He’s dropping off a large plywood slab that’s been painted with white primer for a commissioned piece. Carey says he’s been looking for slimmer, fine-tipped brushes. DelRosario brought him a Ziploc freezer bag full of them. “I love the arts,” Carey says. “I’ve always been interested in art.” Their arrangement has been like this for several years. DelRosario brings him supplies, meals and work commissions from art collectors and friends looking for replicas of Carey’s signs. DelRosario, aka Anthony Turducken, is an artist in his own right who has painstakingly documented hundreds of hand-painted signs — dubbed in the anthropology and art fields as “naive commercial art” — throughout New Orleans. He also is collaborating with sign painters on commissioned works, and his imprint NOLA ’Nacular is releasing a line of T-shirts and prints featuring

painting business in New Orleans. It’s an aesthetic that draws largely from the style and influence of only a handful of people who happen to prefer old-school lettering techniques once common citywide. From the corner store where you bought fresh meat and eggs to the tire shop where you patched a hole and got an oil change to where you prayed on Sunday, you could expect to see the same hand-painted style by the same sign painter. It’s also a means to an end, a skilled gig learned in a trade school, like Delgado Community College’s commercial art program. For local businesses, hiring a sign painter is cheaper than using a commercial printer and neon or electrified signs, though a finished product could take a few days or a few weeks. But because there are only a few sign painters left — and all are nearing retirement — the tradition could be near its end.

Carey and other sign painters’ works through Defend New Orleans this summer. (DelRosario’s Etsy site, www.etsy.com/shop/anthonyturducken, sells Carey’s signs on pins and T-shirts, with proceeds going to Carey.) DelRosario also has developed a following on Facebook, where his Society to Preserve the Art of Lester Carey page and sign painters’ vintage appeal has attracted younger generations of artists and fans, including author and attorney Billy Sothern, who has commissioned Carey via DelRosario for his firm’s Magazine Street sign, an image of which went viral earlier this year: “Law Offices of Glass & Reed, Connor & Sothern criminal attorneys, appeals, notary, cold drinks”. Before the ubiquity of supermarkets, liquor stores and big-box pharmacies, the corner store served as a neighborhood anchor — where people went for news, necessities and gossip — and a living bulletin board. One of those buildings, Delta Super Market on Desire Street, was a giant. Delta — along with Carey’s and John Cannon’s mural of African-American icons among names and prices for grocery store specials — was damaged by the levee failures in 2005 and demolished in 2008. DelRosario, along with preservation advocate Karen Gadbois, watched excavators and bulldozers tear it down. DelRosario’s Instagram and Flickr pages are filled with hundreds of photographs capturing works from sign painters. “The tradition is dying out,” DelRosario says. “I’m trying to document as much as possible. Preservation through documentation.”

Lester Carey has painted signs in Central City and elsewhere for more than 30 years. “I’m into clocks now,” he says. “They play all the time behind me.” Underneath them is Norman Rockwell’s 1960 painting Triple Self Portrait — in which the artist paints himself painting himself painting himself, and so on — torn from a magazine and pinned on the wall. It’s Tom’s favorite work. “He’s my favorite and an inspiration to me,” Tom says, adding with a laugh, “I mean, who’s painting his back?” Tom’s work stretches down Claiborne Avenue, from Well’s Tire and K&T Community Store to Crump Seafood Market & Sandwich Shop. On Washington Avenue, his martini sign for the Big Man Lounge hangs next door to Jazz Daiquiris, where his “No Loitering” sign is painted on its brick exterior. He also painted the dozens of signs on the Freret Tire Center (advertising “Good Old Fashion” Service) and the murals outside Brown Derby diners. “All this started from when I was a kid doodling on mama’s wall,” he says. “I got spanked for that. I should’ve gotten stronger in my own shop. I was just a freelancer. Now I’ve retired from that. All of us get that arm from painting in one area. You lose a lot of your grip. Then your sight goes. Then your mind goes. Then you just go.” Tom attended Delgado in the late ’60s and McCrady Art School on Bourbon Street in the early

’70s. He went on to paint signs for the city and work under sign painter Huey Beder. “That’s when I really got all the way into a sign painter and being competent enough to go out on my own,” he says. “I did do one set of business cards and only got one call back. All the rest is word of mouth or they see me out, ‘Man, you paint? Come here.’” Tom’s living room is filled with half-finished paintings and doodles. Above his couch is a long strip of scrap paper filled with dirty jokes and sign ideas. “I scribble scrabble. That’s my graffiti wall,” he says. “When I get stressed, I just go and do things on there.” Following the levee failures, Tom lived in Texas, earning money from painting signs for auto shops, beauty parlors and hotels (specifically, room numbers on all the doors). Before he was forced to evacuate his home Uptown via helicopter, he rigged car batteries to lights and a stereo and barbecued. “Sign painters always did have a lot of character,” he says. “We all look drunk, we all look like we’ve been thrown away. We’re all dirty and full of paint. We have psychedelic paint because we’re all loaded, loaded, loaded off that stuff.” Tom has slowed his painting business. He suffers from depression and says he has never felt like himself after surviving a gunshot wound to his torso in the ’70s. He tinkers on a smaller scale — painting signs for food trucks and making souvenir posters at Mardi Gras. “Building scaffolds, taking signs down, refurbishing them, repainting, cutting lighted signs and spraying them all — it’s a thrill for me because I learned a lot, just observing a lot of things,” he says. “I got my degree in other things but my passion for art was the No. 1 factor. For the most part, I just have fun with myself.” Sitting in a booth at Burger King on Canal Street, Pam Collins flips through laminated pages in her leather portfolio. Last year, Collins retired from the city of

“Sign painters always did have a lot of character,” says Tom the Sign Man, who has painted signs throughout the city for more than four decades. sign painter. I got my first job — a real job — and stuck with that. I loved what I was doing.” After hours, Collins painted signs for bars, clubs, funeral homes and auto shops, from longtime clients Seal’s Class Act on Aubry Street and the nearby Littlejohn Funeral Home to the doors of the Sandpiper Lounge on Louisiana Avenue — all featuring her signature S-shaped accents, swirled lettering and asterisk-shaped stars. “I’ve got my signature curlicues and those little stars,” she says. “That’s my signature.” She also adds glitter and highlighting to some signs, a technique she learned from former city employee Joe Bernard, aka Joe the Glitter Man. (Bernard also taught the trick to Tom, who painted signs for the board of commissioners briefly.) “I was growing up drawing and painting,” she says. “Remember the cartoons that used to be on TV? I’d sit all the time with a piece of paper, exactly like it was in TV Guide. My mama would say, ‘What do you wanna be when you grow up?’ I’d say, ‘An artist. I like to draw.’ … But I didn’t know what I wanted to do. Anything pertaining to commercial art — I wanted to be a cartoonist, I wanted to do fashion design. I had all kinds of dreams. I really didn’t know until that happened for me, that sign painting position.” Collins’ favorite character, Betty Boop, also is a signature addition in her work. She opens her phone to show a photo of her Mardi Gras costume, a white jumpsuit she covered in hand-painted Betty Boops — touched up with glitter and her signature stars.

“Primary colors,” Carey says. “Red, blue, green, that’s it. And black and white.” Carey works from a basic palette, but his brush strokes have a distinctive flair. They’re sometimes cramped, with words squeezed into a small space despite the size of the wall or board. His work is instantly recognizable, even in the giant white letters outside Chicken Mart: “THANK YOU NEW ORLEANS”. Artists and companies in New Orleans like Mystic Blue Signs and Smallchalk have updated handpainted sign production with more modern techniques. Even artists like Simon Hardeveld, whose folk art-inspired designs have become synonymous with New Orleans’ quirkiness, have evolved — Hardeveld painted the bar-inspired set for WGNOTV’s News With a Twist. But the city’s smaller, low-income neighborhood businesses have come to depend on the skilled labor and art of what’s now a rare and fast-fading industry. Many stores have replaced the outsider-art of hand-painted signs with mass-produced vinyl graphic banners. “We bought a computer but never used it — almost 10 grand when it came out — for vinyl cutting,” Tom says. “We still painted.” But computer-printed signs look flat and lifeless in the same way digital effects in a film look flat compared to a “real” special effect. “There’s no swing to it,” Tom says of computer-printed signs. “It don’t have that swing. The top and bottom is correct but there’s some movement to it. That makes it art. It has some character to it.”

New Orleans, where she had worked since 1983. Her title was, unofficially, the official artist of the city of New Orleans. She retired in November. “I’d paint signs for descriptions of parks, doing all the city agency signs, police department, fire department, all city government signs, NORD,” she says, referring to the New Orleans Recreation Development Commission (NORDC). “A lot of people don’t know that. People recognize [NORDC] — they have painters, but they don’t have no sign painters.” She points at photographs of purple, green and gold panels she painted outside Gallier Hall for Mardi Gras. For 30 years, Collins spent the weeks leading up to Carnival painting the boards outside the official city grandstand. When she worked for the city, Collins’ signs included Carnival’s elaborate second-lining silhouettes to auction announcements and “No Parking” signs under freeway overpasses. Mardi Gras 2014 was the first in more 30 years that Collins didn’t paint. “Gallier Hall, every year I did that,” she says, flipping past pages of boards painted with marching musicians and a portrait of a certain former mayor. “Ray Nagin didn’t want his picture up there, so we had to take it down. He was something else.” When Collins was 16, she started painting signs for birthdays, parties and events in her neighborhood. Collins graduated from Joseph S. Clark High School in 1980 and studied commercial art at Delgado and Xavier University. “I didn’t really know what I wanted to be,” Collins says. “I never thought I was going to be a sign painter. … It just happens it was meant for me to be a

In the most visible local touch, the restaurant’s name is a tribute to former Ole Miss and New Orleans Saints’ running back Deuce McAllister. “His paraphernalia lines the front of the place,” Tees says. “Now that we are open, we hope to get him more involved.”

Del Fuego Taqueria (4518 Magazine St., 504-309-5797; www.delfuegotaqueria.com), the highly anticipated spot for high-end Mexican fare, opened June 10. It has colorful, wood-heavy decor (with Day of the Dead-style art and skull motifs throughout) and festive hanging baskets that create a relaxed, south-ofthe-border vibe. There’s ample seating indoors and out. The bar’s menu of more than 100 tequila and mezcal offerings is robust but not intimidating, with descriptions detailed enough to help first-time enthusiasts find their way. The liquors are organized into three distinct pages for tequila and mezcals — blanco tequila (unaged), reposado tequila (aged in oak for less than one year) and a section that includes both anejo tequila (aged in oak between one and three years) and mezcal — as well as a section for cocktails, beer, wine and agua frescas. The Good, the Bad and the Ugly is a solid starter cocktail, with smoky mezcal, tamarind agua fresca, house-made triple sec and a spicy ancho salt rim. The menu is full of modern updates on taqueria favorites, including rich, roasted duck enchiladas, perfectly seasoned vegan cactus tacos and a bolillo sandwich (basically a torta), which features crusty, oval-shaped white bread with a choice of meat and vegetable fillings. The restaurant opens for dinner at 5 p.m. daily. — SARAH BAIRD

or those eager to stay on the leading edge of the New Orleans dining scene, it can feel like an endless stream of soft openings, themed cocktail hours and waiting for a coveted table alongside dozens of diners who want to eat at a restaurant the week it opens. If you’re looking for a break from the gauntlet of searching out the city’s next dining hot spot, there’s Bistro Daisy. It’s easy to drive past the diminutive, lemon-colored building with dripping, twinkling lights that looks like it plopped down on Magazine Street out of a fairy tale. Once you notice it, though, the charm is magnetizing. Opened in 2007, Bistro Daisy found its stride as the neighborhood’s best kept secret — families and restaurant staff chat and swap stories with great familiarity. It’s the kind of restaurant ideal for celebrating various milestones — births, graduations, engagements — with a pitch-perfect level of intimacy. Bistro Daisy’s interior is as enticing as its whimsical street presence, with finely tuned, old-school bistro elegance in a space comfortable enough to be the home of a dear friend (who happens to be a talented chef). The restaurant makes the most of the small space and adds a number of personal touches, with bouquets of blossoming peonies and daisies arranged in milk jars and oversized vases dotting mantles, bars and tables. Refined dark-wood finishes, white tablecloths and robin’s egg blue, baroque-style crown molding make Bistro Daisy feel timeless without being stuffy. Bistro Daisy does not have a dedicated cocktail menu, and it seems refreshing simply to ask for a Manhattan. The wine list is formidable but the demi-pitcher of house wine ($12.50) is a good deal on a menu that tips into pricey territory. The menu is anchored by solid American bistro-style dishes that are reliably flavorful and hearty across the board. Chilled lump crab salad arrives atop a jewel-toned spread of beets, which marries well with complementary sweetness and is offset by smoldering heat from the horseradish aioli. Poached oysters are a decadent opening to a meal, bathed in a pool of anise-heavy Herbsaint cream which, along with the licorice bite of fennel, revives a classic, rustic French-inspired flavor profile for the oysters. The Daisy salad is an unfortunate stumble, with an overpowering balsamic vinaigrette and ho-hum pairing of sliced mozzarella and gluey roasted peppers on a bed of arugula.

Cocktail lab

24

Root Squared’s (1800 Magazine St., 504-309-7800; www.squarerootnola.com) bar manager Max Messier launched a weekly cocktail series June 10. He calls the pop-up drinks lab “This Might Work…” and it’s designed to share his cocktail experiments with flavors, textures and methods. “It’s a trial run,” Messier says. “I’m definitely looking for feedback.” Inaugural cocktails showcased molecular mixology. Messier used liquid nitrogen to freeze cocktails into fog-making slushes and to create steamy ice cubes (he placed one such cube in a glass of Japanese whiskey, a drink which also could be paired with a short rib dish on chef Phillip Lopez’s tasting menu at Square Root). Gimme Three Steps is a white wine spritzer made with pea puree, bianco vermouth and honey and topped with club soda. It could go with a salad downstairs at Square Root. Other drinks reflect Messier’s interest in exotic spices — ask him to build a sipper with dragon fruit shrub, Moroccan spice syrup or Chinese black tea concentrate. At the pop-up, he also explores alternative ingredients: for his Desert Fox, Messier crushes local chardonnay grapes and uses the must (skins, seeds, juice) as the acid in a gin, vermouth and cinnamonspiced cocktail. For the Urban Achiever, he combines vodka with milk, adds citric acid to curdle the fat, then strains out the fat. The milk-washed vodka has a creamy mouthfeel but is clear, he says. He’ll add it to sweet vermouth and vanilla bean syrup and serve it over crushed ice with a drizzle of St. George coffee liqueur — a variation on a White Russian. All drinks featured in “This Might Work…” are $6. The fleeting nature of pop-ups and use of seasonal ingredients mean that some drinks he creates during the Tuesday cocktail labs might be singular tastings. “This may be the only chance to get to actually try one of them,” he says. — ANNE BERRY

Sweet surrender

The documentary Fed Up (www.fedupmovie.com), which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January, has focused the debate about childhood obesity on sugar. Narrated by Katie Couric, the film documents the lives of three obese children as they struggle to embrace healthier lifestyles and lose weight. It takes a hard look at the reasons surrounding the rise of America’s obesity epidemic over the past 30 years, calling for a massive public policy overhaul and grassroots shift toward healthy lifestyles. Commentary from food writers Michael Pollan and Mark Bittman and a host of medical experts and health policy officials reveal a number of grim facts, including that one out of three Americans will have diabetes by 2050 if current consumption habits continue. The New Orleans Film Society presents a screening at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, June 25, at The Theatres at Canal Place (333 Canal St., third floor, 504-493-6535; www.thetheatres. com). — SARAH BAIRD

Dan Hobgood BEEKEEPER

3939 Veterans • 885-3416

Dan Hobgood owns and operates BeeGoods (www.bee-goods.com), an apiary specializing in natural honey and sustainable beekeeping located near Ida. He recently hosted a beekeeping workshop as part of the Eat Local Challenge. Dan spoke with Gambit about natural beekeeping and his plans to make mead.

(between Cleary Ave & Clearview) Mon-Tues 11-3 • Wed-Thurs 11-7:30 Fri 11-8:30 • Sat 11-8:00 www.parranspoboys.com

How did you get into the business of beekeeping?

Hobgood: I got started doing beekeeping first as a boy, but this time around it was 10 years ago when my wife was diagnosed with breast cancer. Her family owns about 180 acres in Ida, Louisiana, and we decided we were going to move up there, plant a big garden and eat organically for the rest of our lives to try and stave off future bouts of cancer. When we planted our garden, I noticed we didn’t have many honey bees. Growing up, they seemed to be everywhere, and 10 years ago I could only find a few here and there. The words “colony collapse” had just started creeping into the literature in those days, and I decided the best thing for me to do was raise my own bees to pollinate the garden. One day, I looked up and I was more than a beekeeping hobbyist and a little bit less than a commercial beekeeper — and that’s kind of where I like to be. We have hives in north Louisiana where I started this stuff, as well as with my brothers in Clinton and Hammond.

What kind of products do you make with the honey?

What advice would you give people interested in beekeeping?

H: The easiest way to see if you really have an interest is to find a local beekeeper’s club (visit www.labeekeepers.org) — the only one I know of in the New Orleans area is in Covington, but it’s worth checking in with them. Most beekeepers would be thrilled to have you come out and show you what they do and lend a hand. It’s important to see if it’s really for you before you invest any money and time. Beekeeping isn’t cheap anymore, and it’s a good deal of work to keep away pests. I have some folks who put in some new hives in small lots on Algiers Point that are doing really well. When you’re ready, jump in with both feet. — SARAH BAIRD

H: When we first started bottling honey, we gave it away as gifts. I pretty quickly realized that I was spending more money on keeping the bees and bottling the honey than the gifts were worth, so we started selling it in and around the large, metropolitan area of Ida (there are about 230 people in the town). People decided they liked our honey a lot. I started this when I was 56, so now that I’m 66 the hives have gotten awfully heavy, but it’s the best job I’ve ever had in my lifetime. In the United States, you can’t really say that honey is organic because bees fly within a 7-mile radius and you can’t put up traffic lights and signs to direct the bees away from people’s yards and flowers that may or may not have used pesticides. We’re members of a group called Naturally Grown, though, which tells us all the things we can do to make sure our hives are natural. We don’t use any chemicals and to our knowledge no one in the area where our bees would feed use those kinds of products either. Our first and foremost product is our honey. The second thing we started doing is [making] lip balm using the beeswax, honey and mint that we grow at home. We also make candles from time to time. We plan to make some mead here this summer — we have a good crop of bees because we’ve had a good amount of rain this year. [Mead is] the oldest alcoholic beverage known to man. After we do that, we’re going to try and convert some of that mead into honey vinegar. I’m going to put in a lot of blackberries and persimmons, too, to get some good blackberry honey or persimmon honey. Also, I’ll get to make some blackberry wine with leftover blackberries.

WINE of the week 2013 Chateau La Roque Pic Saint Loup Rose COTEAUX DU LANGUEDOC, FRANCE RETAIL $16

Chateau La Roque is a dozen miles from Montpellier in southwestern France, in the shadow of Pic Saint-Loup mountain. The chateau has changed little in more than 800 years; Benedictine monks built the vaulted-ceilinged building which remains, sheltering the chateau’s current cellar. In the 13th century, the de la Roque family replanted the estate, and vineyards have thrived into modern times. The proprietors have implemented biodynamic viticulture and organic practices, virtually eliminating the use of chemicals on the soil or vines. Vineyards are planted on terraces 18 miles from the Mediterranean Sea. The rocky plateau central to the Pic Saint-Loup sub-appellation consists of clay and limestone soils. A blend of 40 percent mourvedre and 30 percent each grenache and cinsault were sourced from 20-year-old vines. In the cellar, the juice fermented with indigenous yeasts in gravity-fed, temperature-controlled cement vats followed by four months of aging in stainless steel tanks. In the glass, it offers subtle aromas of strawberry, mineral undertones and soft, sweet spice. On the palate, taste raspberry, citrus and watermelon. Drink it as an aperitif or with egg dishes, seafood, salads, vegetables, chicken, veal and barbecued pork. Buy it at: Martin Wine Cellar. Drink it at: Loa. — BRENDA MAITLAND Email Brenda Maitland at winediva1@bellsouth.net

A justice league of their own

Comedian and Lady Parts Justice activist Lizz Winstead comes to New Orleans. By Will Coviello

A

Winstead keeps up with state initiatives. “[Gov.] Bobby Jindal has a bill sitting on his desk right now that says if a woman is brain-dead and pregnant she will be forced to be hooked up to life support,” she says. “Wait a minute: You can’t even have autonomy when you’re not even alive. That’s insane.” None of Winstead’s feminism or politics have anything to do with opposing men. In fact, she produced the pilot of The Man Show, in which Jimmy Kimmel and Adam Carolla hung out in a clubhouselike set, drank beer and talked about women and manly things. “We did a bit about ending women’s suffrage,” Winstead says. “They set up a table and told people that women were ‘suffraging’ and we needed to end that.” The pilot also featured products she thought men would find desirable, including a bucket of fried chicken skin — no meat, just skin — and a substitution for the piece of plastic that holds a six-pack of beer together. She proposed making those rings out of beef jerky. While she liked Kimmel and Carolla, she didn’t want to do comedy that didn’t engage politics. “I do comedy,” she says. “Working on issues that I care about politically — I just fold into my life like my yoga practice and walking with my dogs. I do standup twice a week in New York. And I work with organizations that I care about.” Her comedy isn’t simply partisan. “My jokes hopefully bring out an awareness about an issue or a statistic,” Winstead says. “I don’t care if someone is ugly or if John Boehner is orange. What does that tell me about John Boehner?” She also defends women regardless of politics. “I often find myself defending women who I don’t particularly like, because people will attack Ann Coulter or Sarah Palin for what they look like and just be sexist and awful,” she says. “I don’t need that. If you want to tell me about what they wrote or how it’s biased or racist or whatever, feel free. But I am not interested in ad hominem attacks.” Her Twitter feed is full of feisty exchanges and political sparring, but it’s also a playground. She regularly watches the Comedy Central show

@Midnight and tweets her entries for its #hashtag wars, in which the show’s panel of comedians respond to prompts such as “redneck a song” (Winstead tweeted “Daisy Duke of Earl,” “Jenny from Up on Blocks” and other spins on song titles). She also uses Twitter to develop her new material. “If I get 25 retweets in a minute, I favorite it and I build on it,” she says. “I don’t care if my spelling is wrong or punctuation is wrong. A gut laugh to me is 25 retweets in a minute.”

Lizz Winstead speaks at Independent Women’s Organization fundraiser 10 a.m. Saturday The Atrium, New Orleans Lakefront Airport, 6001 Stars & Stripes Blvd. www.iwoneworleans.org

GAMBIT > BESTOFNEWORLEANS.COM > JUNE 17 > 2014

co-creator of both The Daily Show and Air America, comedian Lizz Winstead has always mixed comedy and politics. She’s become more of an activist in recent years, cofounding the organization Lady Parts Justice, a reproductive rights advocacy group. In response to a change.org petition initiated by a men’s rights group seeking to have feminists labeled terrorists, she recently released a video from her “feminist sleeper cell,” in which she addresses the overheated claims of feminism’s reign of terror. As silly as the petition is, she notes that the group A Voice for Men raised more than $30,000 in less than 24 hours to pay for extra security at its convention in Detroit. “I don’t know what men’s rights they’re fighting for, because the websites I’ve gone to are all about how women are trying to manipulate them,” Winstead says via phone from her New York home. “It’s not about defending men as much as saying, ‘Don’t trust women; they’re trying to screw you. They’re faking rape, they’re faking how much money they make. They’re faking paternity tests.’ ... Everything is about how horrible women are. I don’t see the problem. Men seem to have some rights.” Winstead will speak Saturday at a New Orleans fundraiser for the Independent Women’s Organization, a Democratic Party-aligned political group. Helping launch Lady Parts Justice (“Kicking politicians out of vaginas since 2012”) is part of her increasing activism. She’s also performed at 41 fundraisers for Planned Parenthood in the last two years. “The 111th Congress’ first act — when the tea party majority took over in the U.S. House of Representatives — the first thing the House of Representatives did — instead of working on jobs or TARP — was to defund Planned Parenthood,” she says. “Then we saw so many bills pop up. In 2014, we’ve seen 734 bills (restricting reproductive rights) proposed in state legislatures across the country. I said, ‘I can do something about that.’” Ladypartsjustice.com relaunches an expanded site July 15, and it will have a Facebook page for each state with information about legislation affecting reproductive rights. Currently the website’s “Wake Up Wednesday” posts information about current news (on June 11 it noted, “26 states have a waiting period to have an abortion. 11 states have a waiting period to buy a gun.”).

Tim & Eric’s Pusswhip Banggang

Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim — the minds behind the hilariously warped public access-inspired Adult Swim series Check It Out! With Dr. Steve Brule (starring John C. Reilly as the title host) and Tim & Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! — also perform as the AM radio-leaning “Southern” jam band, Pusswhip Banggang. The band premiered in an infomercial segment on Awesome Show for its JUNE Tim & Eric’s Pusswhip Banggang “best of” cassette, featuring The Howlin’ Wolf, 907 S. Peters St. songs like “Fudge Man” and “Kiss Me Once, Shame On You, (504) 529-5844 Kiss Me Twice (Let’s Party).” www.thehowlinwolf.com It’s the kind of terribly nonself-aware hippie dad rock one Tickets $25 might find in the corner of a fictional New Orleans bar, so it’s fitting the “band” is exclusively performing in the South for its 2014 “Swamp Rock” tour (a total of three shows in Georgia, Alabama and Louisiana). Expect to hear other Awesome Show hits, like the unnecessary prog-rock anthem “Brownie Mountain” and the sloppy ballad “Poke On.” Chicago record label Drag City (home of Joanna Newsom, Silver Jews and comedians Neil Hamburger and Fred Armisen) will release Pusswhip Banggang’s Jambalaya 12-inch record on June 24 — recipe included. — ALEX WOODWARD

The summer movie season is not 22 Jump Street (R) in full swing until the blockbuster Directed by Phil Lord and sequels arrive. But 22 Jump Street Christopher Miller may be Hollywood’s first meta-seStarring Jonah Hill, Channing Tatum quel, a movie openly obsessed with the many facets of its own and Ice Cube second-time-around status. The film Wide release jump-starts by everyone agreeing that buddy cops Morton Schmidt (Jonah Hill) and Greg Jenko (Channing Tatum) must do exactly what they did in 21 Jump Street to crack the new case (and ensure big box-office numbers); navigates a car-chase sequence by having the heroes calculate the potential cost of their destructive choices to the police department (and to the Hollywood studio); and ends with a satirical preview of the next 20 or so Jump Street movies. What’s not to like? Filmmaking partners Phil Lord and Christopher Miller densely pack their second Jump Street film with nearly two hours worth of in-jokes and improvised humor, but the subject here is bromance. The unlikely odd-couple chemistry of Hill and Tatum is put to the test when they infiltrate the local college for undercover work and find themselves falling in with different crowds, just as high-school sweethearts often do. Lord and Miller milk the idea for all its worth, sending the “partners” to accidental couples therapy as the threat of a breakup looms. Ice Cube hits the mark as the always-agitated Capt. Dickson, and Jillian Bell (of Comedy Central’s Workaholics) is hilarious as Mercedes, a sarcastic observer of Schmidt’s on-campus antics — their eventual fistfight alone is worth the price of admission. It’s all just funny enough to work.

Going Attractions: The Definitive Story of the American Drive-In Movie

Few things inspire misty-eyed JUNE Going Attractions: The Definitive nostalgia among Americans of Story of the American Drive-In a certain age than the drive-in 2:30 p.m. Sun.; 7:30 p.m. Mon.-Tue. movie theater. Invented in THRU Camden, New Jersey, in 1933 Chalmette Movies, 8700 W. Judge by entrepreneur Richard Perez Drive Hollingshead (who for years (504) 304-9992 collected 2 cents per patron www.chalmettemovies.com in royalties from those who adopted his idea) and peaking at 5,000 theaters nationwide in 1958, drive-ins came to symbolize post-war freedom and prosperity as well as the arrival of teen culture in the mid-1950s. Writer/director April Wright’s low-budget documentary Going Attractions offers a fast-paced survey of drive-in history and the cultural forces that ultimately led to outdoor cinema’s decline. The film doesn’t go deep enough (and an insistent soundtrack featuring cheesy 1970s-style hard rock doesn’t help matters), but even the basics of drive-in history prove entertaining enough to carry the film. Among the little-known blips in that history are fly-in drive-ins (the first of which had space for 500 cars and 25 small planes) and the short-lived Autoscope, which arranged private screens about the size of today’s home flat-screens in a giant circle (one for each car). And who knew that drive-in’s greatest threat was perhaps Daylight Savings Time? Drive-in proprietors fought the adoption of the practice — which would push drive-in start times as late as 10 p.m. and ruin all-important concession sales — but lost that battle in 1967. Wright visited 500 drive-ins (or their former sites) in 49 states over the course of seven years to make Going Attractions, and her perseverance bears fruit. Interview subjects including Hollingshead’s heirs and the family that created those beloved animated snack-bar ads (“Let’s all go to the lobby!”) give the film historical value that will please academic researchers and nostalgia hounds. — KEN KORMAN

Early Modern Faces, European Portraits, 1480-1780: Paintings and prints by old masters Tulane University, Newcomb Art Gallery, (504) 865-5328 www.newcombartgallery.tulane.edu

The people pictures we see around us today usually look far removed from Renaissance old master portraits, yet both can reflect “modern” ideas. Although this Early Modern Faces expo at Newcomb Art Gallery sticks with the Renaissance and related traditions, traces of modernity often lurk beneath the surface. Paolo Veronese’s circa 1580 Portrait of a Lady as Saint Agnes becomes almost mind boggling as we realize the lady in question is a flashy blonde decked out in opulent gold brocade, silk and lace. She looks more flirtatious than pious, and there is no way to know if the little tome in her hand is a prayer book or something spicier. Even the little white lamb in her lap — a symbol of sainthood — looks curiously like a pet poodle. Further investigation reveals that many young, soon-to-be-wed women of Renaissance Italy had their portraits painted as saints to emphasize their purported “purity,” even if they ended up looking more like Renaissance versions of Vogue glamour shots. While there is no shortage of virtuoso brushwork by vintage art stars here, these masterworks are sometimes startlingly simpatico with both antique and avant-garde styles. Paul van Somer’s 1620 Elizabeth, Viscountess Faulkland (pictured) reveals a smirking noblewoman in an outrageous Peruvian colonial-looking outfit, but her hairdo is even wilder, a kind of medieval beehive with a filigree of flowers and lace. An extravaganza worthy of Max Ernst, this somehow recalls both Frida Kahlo and The Bride of Frankenstein. And Henry VIII, Mary I and Will Somers the Jester, an anonymous mid-16th century court painting of imposingly outfitted royals looking like they’re plotting palace intrigue as a sinister jester skulks grimly in the shadows, is also improbably cinematic. Curated by Newcomb art historian Anne Dunlop, and featuring many works loaned by Houston’s stellar Sarah Campbell Blaffer Collection, this insightful old master portrait show suggests that, rather than a fixed period of time, the aesthetic meaning of “modern” involves a certain psychologically expressive state of mind. — D.

STAGE LISTINGS REVIEW

Reefer Madness

One of the reasons the film Reefer Madness (1936) is a cult classic is its wooden acting. But its strange tone also is a product of its disingenuous purpose. Reefer Madness was a grindhouse film from the early era of the Motion Picture Production Code, which determined what was morally permissible in films. The best way to sneak lurid content into a film was to package it as an “educational” warning JUNE Reefer Madness about the dangers of, say, marijuana, 8 p.m. Fri.-Sat.; 6 p.m. Sun. unwanted pregnancy or sexually transMid-City Theatre, 3540 THRU mitted diseases. It was essentially an Toulouse St. exploitation film, not a poorly made public service warning. (504) 488-1460 The musical version of Reefer Madwww.midcitytheatre.com ness was created in the late 1990s, after the anti-drug fervor of Ronald Reagan-era “Just Say No” messages and well before the current move toward pot legalization in some states. Ampersand Productions’ version of the musical at MidCity Theatre is light summer fun. It delivers some zany musical numbers, including one with a scantily clad full cast dancing in grass skirts with marijuana leaves strategically placed like fig leaves for a lampooned suggestion of modesty. Unfortunately, the show rarely delivers the madness the title promises. The story focuses on a bright high school student, Jimmy (Tony Coco), who samples pot and quickly abandons everything he cares about to buy more weed and have sex with a woman who hangs out at a marijuana den. He betrays his wholesome sweetheart Mary Lane (Linsey Shubert), and the plot follows his struggle to choose between her and the herb. An onstage narrator (Nick Giardina) guides the audience through the story, but his mock seriousness is never alarming. The songs and plot suggest Jimmy’s life is going to hell, but the acting and choreography don’t conjure a sense of menace or a sinister edge, comic or straight, to match the hyperbole. There are some good solos, notably by Shubert and Allee Peck, but the best numbers are the ensemble extravaganzas. Actors costumed as giant pot leaves dancing through the aisles are funny, but the hallucination bits need a few more tokes to reach trippy abandon. Mary’s stoned diversion into sexual experimentation could have been smoother, but it got tied up with props and awkward positions. The show’s best moments are its over-the-top flourishes. A short song about child abandonment (“Lullaby”) is hilariously sad and creepy. A slapstick gag in a bloody revenge scene provides a great point of gratuitous indulgence. On the underrealized side, however, a few props, including a ticket booth and handwritten newspaper front page, were so poorly rendered that they were distracting. The show isn’t a bad trip, but stronger prescriptions are now available in many states, and that’s what the doctor should have ordered. — WILL COVIELLO

JOB GURU

Dear New Orleans Job Guru, “I’ve had some really great jobs in the past, and I have an M.B.A., but I stayed at home for quite a few years raising my kids. The youngest is starting Kindergarten and I’m ready to go back to work. Now I’m worried that having an 8-year gap in my work history is going to make my résumé look terrible. What can I do that will help?” — Janet K., New Orleans, LA Dear Janet, Although returning to the job market can be difficult for moms who have been out of the workforce, you certainly have options. This issue has been a recurring theme during my two decades as a resume writer and career coach. The good Grant Cooper news is that employer attitudes about this issue have changed dramatically over the past several years, in a positive direction. As of 2009, there were 85.4 million mothers in the U.S., with approximately 5 million stay-at-home moms. In 2011, 23% of married-couple families with children through age 14 had a stay-at-home mom, up from 21% in 2000. In a More.com article by Leslie Morgan Steiner, Myra Hart, a professor at Harvard Business School, states that many of today’s best and brightest women choose to go home in the middle of their high-earning years (between ages 37-42). 57% of stay-at-home moms are considering going back to work, reports the Boston-based research firm Reach Advisors. A 2009 Center for Work-Life Policy survey of “highly qualified” women with advanced degrees or high-honors undergraduate degrees, found that among those who had stepped away from their careers, fully 69% said they would not have done so if their workplace offered more flexible work arrangements. What I would suggest, Janet, in order to get around your 8-year gap in employment, is that you combine the sum of all of your parenting, school volunteering, and community activities into one section, as if it were a job, showing those skills and abilities that these activities required. If you have assisted with a family member’s or spouse’s business, attended classes, or performed other roles during the 8 years, I would include those activities as well.

The New Athletic. by

Meet Mike. He comes from a long line of New England Antique Dealers (with a sketchy connection to the Salem Witch Trials we probably shouldn’t be telling you about). As a kid, his prospects were bright: he often helped out at his grandmother’s antique shop, and also considered a career as a garbage man – the one that gets to hang off the back of the truck. At 14, however, Mike’s path was derailed when he got into photography: a known gateway interest into the wider world of art. Photography has consumed Mike’s life, he started a website and is often seen spending a lot of time at a studio. Typical of such cases, there wasn’t enough to feed Mike’s habit in New England, and he ended up in New York where he has been spotted with his fellow art addict Claire; making art, costumes, props, and set designs (evidence of this has been recorded at mikeandclaire.com). Lost to art, Mike plans on continuing his life in this way, and even hopes to one day start an art center for kids, or a queer safe art space for youth. He’s only 20 though, so there is hope for him yet. He is pictured here wearing the Slater Short and the Thick Knit Baseball Jersey.
