seven things to do in seven days

Mumford & Sons with Michael Kiwanuka and Mystery Jets |

At the front of the stomping, twinkling folk rock band Mumford & Sons, Marcus Mumford has strummed open-heart surgery into a bushel of industry awards, a records-setting sophomore album (last year’s Babel) and the affections of Carey Mulligan, among others. Fellow Union Jack bleeders Michael Kiwanuka and Mystery Jets open at Mardi Gras World. PAGE 108.

Faun Fables Wed. June 12 | On Light of a Vaster Dark, the fifth LP by Drag City stalwarts Faun Fables, Dawn McCarthy’s piercing vocals and dissolve-effect string instruments (guitar, autoharp) are attractive opposites, balancing the fringe folkies’ global dart game. At the AllWays Lounge. PAGE 108.

The Merry Wives of Windsor Thu.-Sun. June 13-29 | The New Orleans Shakespeare Festival at Tulane kicks off its season with The Merry Wives of Windsor. The comedy follows the buffoonish Falstaff, one of the Bard’s most beloved characters, as he haplessly pursues married women. At Tulane University. PAGE 120. Tommy Malone Sat. June 15 | Former Subdude Tommy Malone releases his latest solo album Natural Born Days, full of honky-tonking and gritty slide blues on songs reflecting on Hurricane Katrina-related hardships and the long road home to New Orleans. At Chickie Wah Wah. PAGE 108.

Southern Fried Swamp Fest Sat.-Sun. June 15-16 | There will be live music and all sorts of fried foods (boudin, seafood balls, Oreos and more) at the Audubon Zoo. Performers include Jean Knight (“Mr. Big Stuff”), Gal Holiday and the Honky Tonk Revue, Big Sam’s Funky Nation and others. PAGE 123. Albare Sun. June 16 | Guitarist Albert Dadon, aka Albare, was born in Morocco, raised in Israel and France and emigrated to Australia, where he helped popularize acid jazz. Running the country’s largest jazz festival kept him from recording until a recent run showcasing his breezier-than-Pat Metheny, jazzier-than-George Benson style. At Snug Harbor. PAGE 108. The Body Sun. June 16 | A masterful exercise in punishing volume, Master, We Perish (At A Loss) from Portland, Ore. doombringing duo The Body has earned thunderous acclaim. In less than 20 minutes, it builds an impenetrable wall of droning metal while simultaneously tearing it apart. Bayou black metal wizards Barghest open. At The Big Top Gallery. PAGE 108.

knowledge is power

Da winnas & da loozas Our annual recap of the legislative carnage By Clancy DuBos

1. The fiscal hawks — They began as an ideological band of GOP outliers. Formally organized as the Louisiana Budget Reform Campaign, the hawks initially focused on budget reform, challenging Jindal’s use of one-time money to balance the budget year after year. They gained traction when the annual Southern Media and Opinion Research poll showed the governor with lower voter approval ratings than President Barack Obama, then broke into full gallop when Jindal pulled down his tax-swap plan on the session’s opening day. They reached out to Democrats and the Black Caucus to cobble together a House majority, and when the governor disengaged from the process after “parking” his tax-swap plan, they filled the power void by rewriting the administration’s proposed budget. As the session wore on, the hawks showed their mettle. When the Senate, as expected, put the budget back into a form more to Jindal’s liking, they stood their ground (with their new allies) and, for the first time in memory, brought both the Upper Chamber and the governor to the bargaining table. The hawks also won key concessions on future budgets. Their tactics galled “mainstream” Republicans, but the hawks believe they stood for genuine GOP values and rediscovered the party’s fiscal compass. Along the way, they gave the Legislature something it hasn’t seen in generations: real independence. They also imparted a valuable lesson to anyone who happened to be paying attention: Compromise and coalition building get a lot more done than name-calling and ideological gridlock. 2. The hospitality industry — The New Orleans Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) gained authority to add a 1.75 percent “assessment” to local hotel bills, which could double the

outgoing president and CEO of United Way of Southeast Louisiana, received honors from the Louisiana State Senate and House of Representatives for his 40 years of serving the organization. The Louisiana Legislature commended Ostroske for United Way’s recovery and rebuilding efforts following Hurricane Katrina, the BP oil disaster and Hurricane Isaac.

was included in Inc. magazine’s “30 Under 30: World’s Coolest Young Entrepreneurs” list for 2013. The Solomon Group president is listed along with entrepreneurs behind companies like Pinterest, Spotify and Instagram. Solomon co-founded the Solomon Group in 2009 to build interactive installations, live productions and events.

CVB’s budget. But the big story for the hospitality industry was fending off Jindal’s attempt to “sweep” $100 million from the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center’s reserve fund. The convention center also convinced lawmakers to expand the “footprint” in which it can partner with private developers — and to expand its bonding capacity. This may have been the most successful session for the hospitality industry since the 1984 World’s Fair. (Disclosure: From 2001 through 2009, I was a member of the CVB’s board of directors.) 3. House Democrats and the Black Caucus — The enemy of my enemy is my friend, or so goes an ancient Arabian proverb. The Democrats and the Black Caucus no doubt had that notion in mind when they teamed with their ideological opposites, the fiscal hawks, to vanquish a common foe — Gov. Bobby Jindal — on the budget. The Dems and “the caucus” leveraged their new alliance to get millions for teacher pay raises, K-12 public education, and Southern and Grambling universities. They also joined the hawks and business interests to kill the governor’s tax-swap plan before the session began. 4. Delgado Community College — Actually, all community and technical colleges are big winners as a result of an “end run” around the capital outlay process that could put more than $250 million in construction funds into the regional campuses. Of that amount, some $92 million is earmarked for Delgado. 5. Parochial officials — Judges, assessors and clerks of page 8

The Family Independence Initiative

awarded a $10,000 Torchlight Prize to Camp Congo Square, a low-cost, twoweek New Orleans cultural summer camp for kids. The Oakland, Calif.-based initiative was founded by 2012 MacArthur Genius Award recipient Maurice Lim Miller, and its 2013 Torchlight Prize recognizes four community-driven organizations from across the country.

The Louisiana House Education Committee

killed an amendment on May 29 to repeal the Balanced Treatment for Creation Science and Evolution Science Act, which once required schools to give equal weight to creationism and science. The U.S. Supreme Court declared the act unconstitutional in 1987, but its language still stands in Louisiana law.

alph Waldo Emerson once wrote of a political poseur, “The louder he talked of his honor, the faster we counted our spoons.” I thought of that quote when I noticed the two biggest losers of the just-ended legislative session — Gov. Bobby Jindal and Mayor Mitch Landrieu — were the first to claim victory after adjournment sine die. Their self-congratulatory press releases hit my in box literally minutes after the final House and Senate gavels fell. The lads doth protest too much, methinks. The 2013 session was unusual in many respects. It produced some of the oddest political bedfellows in memory. With few exceptions, this year’s session also lacked big ideas. The few bold initiatives that did get floated mostly got shot down in short order — starting with the governor “parking” his ill-conceived taxswap plan. Truth be told, Jindal’s plan was never really in gear. And soon after he retreated on that front, he pretty much stayed on the sidelines for the duration of the session. But I’m getting ahead of myself. As is our custom after a legislative session, before we pick the bones of the losers we first must pay homage to …

court (as well as some sheriffs) will get pay raises this year, even though state employees haven’t gotten raises since Jindal took office. The clerks and assessors will have to generate the money for their pay hikes, but the judges’ raises will come from the state. 6. Public school teachers — Thanks to the odd alliance of Democrats and GOP fiscal hawks in the House, teachers finally got a pay raise this year. it proves there’s no limit to what can happen when strategy trumps ideology. 7. New Orleans firefighters — The biggest blaze that local firefighters put out all year was the political conflagration that threatened to engulf their pension fund. Mayor Mitch Landrieu pushed several bills to take over the fund in the wake of scandals, but firefighters doused Hizzoner’s measures and won passage of watered-down reforms that keep the fund under their control, with some needed restrictions. 8. Public sector unions — who would have thought labor could win in a “red” state where the GOP controls the Governor’s Mansion and both legislative chambers? Labor killed an attempt by Big Business to eliminate dues check-offs for public sector unions. HB 552 was modeled after a similar wisconsin measure, but it died in committee. 9. Local ferry riders — state sen. David Heitmeier, D-New Orleans, filed sB 215 to keep the Chalmette and Canal street ferries in operation in the post-toll era. The bill authorizes the Regional Transit Authority to contract with the state to operate both ferries, with a combination of state funding and local fares. All fares must be used for ferry operation and maintenance. 10. Gun lovers — A pair of patently unconstitutional bills seeking to thwart federal gun control laws died in the senate, but several other measures expanding concealedcarry rights handily passed. HB 8 would penalize the intentional publication of handgun permit holders’ information, while HB 98 would allow sheriffs to honor handgun permits issued by adjacent parishes. Another gun-related bill allows for lifetime handgun permits. 11. Lt. Gov. Jay Dardenne — The lieutenant governor will henceforth control the Louisiana seafood Promotion and Marketing Board under a bill by sen. Norby Chabert, R-Chauvin. The board will move to the state Department of Culture, Recreation and Tourism, which Dardenne oversees, and he will name all members of the board — as well as its executive director. which brings us to …

GAMBIT > BESTOFNEWORLEANS.COM > JUNE 11 > 2013

    1. Gov. Bobby Jindal — By the end of the session, folks were  drawing comparisons between Jindal and former New Orleans Mayor  Ray Nagin, who famously disengaged himself from governing in his  disastrous second term. Jindal threw in the towel on his tax-swap plan  on opening day of the legislative session, no doubt assuming lawmakers would wander aimlessly and then come crawling back to him for  guidance. He guessed wrong.      Nature abhors a vacuum, and Jindal left a big one. Senate President  John Alario easily filled the void in the Upper Chamber, and to the surprise of many, the fiscal hawks picked up the gauntlet in the House. As a  result, Jindal lost control of the budget. The hawks rewrote vast portions  of the spending bill, then made the Senate and the governor back down  on budget reforms. Jindal feebly tried to take credit for the eleventh-hour  budget compromise, but everyone knows the deal was done before the  governor even got to the table. Above all, Jindal lost his patina of invincibility. Now everybody knows the little emperor has no clothes.     2. Mayor Mitch Landrieu — Hizzoner has a 70 percent approval  rating among voters, but his negatives among local legislators may be  more like 90 percent. He fought with, and disrespected, just about every  local lege. They responded by killing or hijacking all of his major initiatives. His bills to reduce the number of Juvenile Court judges and gain  control of the firefighters’ pension board died in committee. Landrieu  took credit after the session for revising membership on the Sewerage  and Water Board (S&WB), but his version of the “reform” was not the  one that passed. The final S&WB reform bill more closely resembles the  recommendations of the Bureau of Governmental Research than the bill  Landrieu pushed. Overall, his relationships with local lawmakers are at a  low point. As one observer put it, “You can’t pick a fight with everybody  in the bar and expect to walk out unscathed.”     3. Republicans — Years ago, GOP leaders longed for the day when  their party could wrest control of the Legislature from Democrats. Now  they’re like the dog that finally caught the car. In politics, growth brings  diversity, and factions, and that complicates things. Under Jindal’s spell,  the GOP never gave proper respect to the fiscal hawks. The hawks  responded by reaching across the aisle to Democrats and the Black  Caucus, who were only too eager to deal — especially if it meant embarrassing Jindal. By the time “mainstream” Republicans realized what was  happening, it was too late.      4. The poor/uninsured — A handful of bills designed to force  Louisiana to accept the expansion of Medicaid died. It may have been  the only example of Jindal getting off his duff — although GOP lawmakers hardly needed him to tell them to vote “no” on those bills. As a result,  hundreds of thousands of working poor will remain uninsured.     5. Public universities — Public support for higher ed has been cut  by at least 85 percent since Jindal took office, and it’s starting to show  in lower standards. As Sen. Jack Donahue, R-Covington, noted near  the end of the session, “It won’t be long before we’re spending more on  rebates for motion pictures than we are on higher ed.” State colleges  didn’t even get freedom to raise tuitions, further sealing their fate.     6.

hether New Orleans properly takes care of its musicians and other artists is a never-ending saga — but one that may finally be showing some improvement, according to a panel discussion held at Tulane University June 6. The panel was titled “Does Progress Destroy Culture?” and that question can only be answered “yes” in literal fashion when a bulldozer knocks down a historic building, said Tulane University geography professor Richard Campanella. But in New Orleans, the debate often takes a broader meaning in the tension between the city’s residents and its performers — in the case of music venues, food trucks, parades and many other forms of expression. But while proponents of the culture usually decry the interference as the end of their ability to exist, what happens instead is they transform; decreasing profits and standards on Bourbon Street, for instance, led to the creation of an alternative scene on lower Decatur Street, and its success led to the growth of Frenchmen Street, spreading now down St. Claude Avenue. That balancing act between the rights of residents and the rights of performers is exactly how civics is supposed to work, Campanella said, and results in a movement he deemed a “dynamic equilibrium” — akin to how a bicycle remains upright by moving forward — which only falls down when it comes to a stop. “Progress does not mark the end of history nor the destruction of culture, but rather, the next chapter of both,” Campanella concluded. Journalist Katy Reckdahl described those unending neighborhood-versus-club fights as tiresome but said Mayor Mitch Landrieu’s administration has done a better job connecting performers and residents before the fight gets out of hand. Mardi Gras Indians no longer clash with the New Orleans Police Department (NOPD), and NOPD Chief Ronal Serpas even defended the second-line groups after the Mother’s Day shootings. “Some of these battles have gotten better, but I still see people discussing how to protect it,” Reckdahl said afterward. “Maybe we care more about culture than we ever have.” Musical patriarch Ellis Marsalis, 78, took an even broader view: musicians who formerly could be seen only in person, he said, can now be watched on TV (or, presumably, the Internet). The fall of segregation — in everything from Jim Crow laws to Mardi Gras krewes — represents clear progress as well, Marsalis said. Hotelier Michael Valentino said that the hospitality industry — sometimes caricatured as the Disney-fying enemy of culture — actually has a stake in preserving New Orleans culture, because that’s what it sells to tourists. Ultimately, musician Shamarr Allen said, if the city can protect its culture and traditions, it may be culture that saves the city. When he was growing up in the 9th Ward, he remembers one day asking his parents for $20 for a school field trip. They didn’t have it, and neither did his grandparents. Allen went outside to pout. The neighborhood drug dealer walked by and asked what was wrong. Allen explained. The dealer handed him a $100 bill. “That situation to me makes him my role model — you understand?” Allen said. “And that happens every day.” But Allen went on to study music in the city’s public schools under the mentorship of Brice Miller, the Mahogany Brass Band leader whose music has taken him to Carnegie Hall and who was present in the Tulane audience. Miller’became a different kind of role model, Allen said —one that ultimately saved Allen’s life. “Everybody don’t have that,” Allen concluded, focusing his attention on Miller, “and I just want to say thank you.” — This story was produced in partnership with Uptown Messenger.

Quote of the week

“i join (Texas sen.) Ted Cruz in calling for the end of the iRs. Let’s replace it with something apolitical that does not have a mandate to enforce Obamacare. Our privacy and political freedoms should not be sacrificed.” — Rep. Bill Cassidy, R-Baton Rouge, in a statement June 4. Cassidy has announced his intention to run against U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu next year. As to what that “something apolitical” might be that would replace the internal Revenue service, Cassidy did not say, but Cruz has expressed support for a sort-of-flat tax (with deductions for charity and mortgages) that could be filled out “on a postcard.”

that will run a safe and secure jail in a financially responsible way.” The southern Poverty Law Center (sPLC), which originally brought the lawsuit that led to the consent decree, praised Africk’s decision. “For years, the jail has been too big and out of control,” said Katie Schwartzmann, managing attorney for the sPLC’s Louisiana office, in a prepared statement. “Now that the court order is in place, the real work of transforming the jail can begin. we hope that all parties will move quickly to enforce the provisions of the consent decree. we need to get staff in the jail. we need to get people mental health care. … Reform simply cannot come soon enough.” — ALex wOODwARD

From advisor to opponent chabert may run againSt mary landrieu next year After arriving in the Louisiana senate following a 2009 special election and currently in his first full term, state sen. Norby Chabert, R-Houma, confirmed he is being courted to oppose U.s. sen. Mary Landrieu in her re-election bid next year. But Chabert — until two years ago a registered Democrat — added he is focused on his work in the senate for now and any significant thought on a campaign would have to come later. Moreover, Chabert said the U.s. senate race isn’t the only one in his sights. “i’m being asked about a couple of different races,” he said. Chabert’s work on coastal issues and with the oil and gas industry is among the reasons sources say energy interests are encouraging him to run. it’s clearly an effort to undercut Landrieu’s similar strengths, particularly now that she’s in line to chair the powerful senate energy and Natural Resources Committee if she wins re-election. even without the chairmanship, Louisiana’s senior U.s. senator has a longer record of service in the area of oil and gas issues than Chabert does. There’s another connection between the two: Chabert served as a consultant to Landrieu during her 2002 reelection campaign. in 2009, he told the Houma Courier, “Doing everything i could to see sen. Landrieu get elected was a major accomplishment for me. … And i’ve learned a lot from sen. Landrieu as well.” Asked about his former gig, Chabert said, “it’s only fair to say that i worked for her over 10 years ago and i’ve served for years in elected office, and that is a lot of time to change your views on something — or somebody.” Landrieu, a New Orleans Democrat, first assumed office on the Hill in 1997 and is considered by Republicans to be a top target nationally in 2014. she already has drawn an

Sheriff and mayor exchange barbS, blame U.s. District Judge Lance Africk approved a federal consent decree June 6 between the Orleans Parish sheriff’s Office and the U.s. Department of Justice to address conditions at Orleans Parish Prison (OPP). The consent decree, to be assessed and overseen by an independent monitor, was welcomed by Orleans Parish sheriff Marlin Gusman, though he has stressed repeatedly that his office and the jail are run constitutionally. Gusman has claimed that the jail’s conditions reflect a lack of funding and leadership from Mayor Mitch Landrieu and the city. Landrieu objected to the consent decree over finances, arguing it will cost the city $110 million over five years. in March, Landrieu held an emergency New Orleans City Council meeting to discuss the city’s budgetary problems with managing consent decrees for both the New Orleans Police Department and OPP. Gusman then slammed Landrieu for what the sheriff called a “last-ditch attempt” by the city to get out of the decree. A week later, after hours of testimony in federal court, Gusman blasted the mayor for “throwing mud” regarding the now-infamous jailhouse footage of inmates flashing weapons, gambling, using drugs and drinking. The court’s ruling last week says OPP’s conditions have created a “public health crisis” where “inmates, and particularly inmates with mental health issues, leave the facility more damaged, and perhaps more dangerous, than when they arrived.” in a statement, Landrieu said Africk’s decision was “a clear condemnation of the conditions and operations” at OPP. He added, “i will continue to make our case to the court that the problems at OPP are more about management than money. The only way to fix the conditions and operations at the jail is to put a federal receiver in place

An ObAmAcAre OppOnent Accepts AcA funds The Nation reported last week that many members of Congress who had come out publicly against the Affordable Care Act (ACA, aka obamacare) either sought or happily accepted ACA funds for their districts — including Rep. Bill Cassidy, R-Baton Rouge. The magazine said Cassidy “stood next to a 6-foot stack of papers he dubbed the “obamacare Red Tape Tower of Regulations” at a press conference in may — but seven months before he had “posed for a different type of press event, standing with school administrators in Baton Rouge, scissors in hand, at a ribbon-cutting ceremony for three school-based health centers. The ceremony was a celebration of a $500,000 grant authorized by the ACA to expand health clinics in area schools.” Cassidy, who has announced he will challenge Democratic U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu in 2014, is a doctor and an associate professor of medicine at Louisiana State University. Landrieu is criticized by Republicans because she voted for the ACA. — Kevin ALLmAn Introducing the thinnest lenses on the planet—the ZEISS 1.74 High Index Lenses.

sculptures mArk emergency pickup pOints on June 3, city officials unveiled one of 17 new “evacuspots” — 14-foot sculptures that identify pickup points in the event the city activates its mandatory hurricane evacuation plan — at a ceremony outside Armstrong Park on north Rampart Street. “We can’t be ready enough,” said mayor Mitch Landrieu. “every season is different.” (Two days after the event, the first named storm of the Atlantic hurricane season — Tropical Storm Andrea — formed in the Gulf of mexico.) The stick-man sculptures, created by artist Doug Kornfeld, indicate a pickup location where anyone can meet for a city-assisted ride out of new orleans in the event of a mandatory evacuation.

news + views Robert X. Fogarty, founder of the group evacuteer, which developed the evacuspot idea, said the evacuspots create public art that also serves a purpose, rather than “signs the size of a two-hour parking sign. … These sculptures signify an evacuation we hope to never have to use,” he said. “Arts and culture intersect directly with civic goals,” said Kim Cook, president of the Arts Council of New Orleans, the organization that funded the $200,000 project. Attached to the sculpture is a reminder about what to bring (and what not to bring) if you evacuate on city-provided transportation: only one piece of luggage no larger than 15 inches by 22 inches. Pets must be in a carrier or on a leash and have proof of vaccinations. No drugs, guns or “prohibited substances” are allowed, and all evacuees must bring identification. All evacuspot locations are listed on the city’s website at new.nola.gov/ ready/evacuspots/map/. — Alex wOOdwArd

Equal work, equal pay the way, comprise almost 55 percent of the voting public) does a lot more than make lawmakers look good back home. It’s smart politics and good policy. The third objection is the only one that holds water. Some say the pay gap is a natural financial consequence that comes when women make the choice (or are forced) to drop out of the workplace or work fewer hours because of child rearing or other matters. (Read: “the mommy tax.”) True, that argument may account for some of the pay gap in aggregate, but it’s meaningless when comparing two people with the same experience doing the same job — and certainly child rearing isn’t the job of every woman. (And plenty of men are raising kids these days as well. Perhaps “the mommy tax” ought to be renamed “the parent tax.”) SB 153 won’t eliminate the pay gap by itself. Instead, it lays out a path for state workers who feel they’re the

An aggrieved worker must inform her employer of her complaint, triggering a 60-day period during which the state agency cannot retaliate and the worker cannot bring any action against her employer. If the matter isn’t resolved during that period, she can file a complaint with the Louisiana Commission on Human Rights (an existing state agency). If the commission fails to resolve the dispute, then — and only then — will a worker be able to file a civil suit. Murray’s bill won’t tighten the pay gap in the private sector, but it will provide a clear means of redress for state workers who’ve been treated unequally. We urge Gov. Jindal to sign SB 153. June 10 marks the 50th anniversary of the Equal Pay Act of 1963, and this bill brings Louisiana closer to the goal of ensuring equal pay for equal work across the spectrum.

f workers do the same job, they should be paid the same wage. That’s not a complicated concept, but it’s one that has run into trouble in the Louisiana Legislature in years past. According to statistics provided by the National Women’s Law Center (NWLC), at the time of the federal Equal Pay Act of 1963, women were only being paid 59 cents for every dollar that men were paid for doing the same jobs. By 2010 — nearly 50 years later — Louisiana women hadn’t made much progress, being paid only 63 cents on the dollar compared to men. (The national wage gap shows women making 77 cents on the dollar compared to men.) That pay gap, according to the NWLC, exists across all income levels, races and levels of education. Data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics also bears out Louisiana’s wide pay disparity. In 2011, the Bureau found Wyoming to be the only state with a wider pay gap than Louisiana. That needs to change. Some Louisiana lawmakers have tried to address this inequity in recent years — without success. In the 2012 legislative session, the Equal Pay for Women Act, sponsored by state Sen. Karen Carter Peterson, D-New Orleans, went down in a 3-5 Senate committee vote. This year, a similarly titled act by state Sen. Ed Murray, D-New Orleans, was rejected in a vote in May. Opponents cited concerns that private companies could become enmeshed in expensive lawsuits. Fortunately, Murray did not give up. Last week, Murray convinced his colleagues to accept an amended version of his bill, which passed with one major but narrowing provision: The new law only applies to state workers, not to private employees. That version of the bill (Senate Bill 153) passed in the Senate by an overwhelming (and bipartisan) margin: 35-2, and flew through the House as well. It now goes to Gov. Bobby Jindal’s desk, and he would do well to sign it. Opponents of SB 153 and similar legislation posited several arguments. The first is that men’s jobs are often more physical and difficult. That doesn’t hold water — equal pay legislation is predicated on people doing the same job. The second argument against equal pay is that any state legislation that tracks the federal Equal Pay Act is unnecessary and duplicative. That may sound true, but federal legislation hasn’t eliminated the wage gap for women — and Louisiana politicians, it should be noted, are hardly averse to passing duplicative laws when it makes them look good back home.

ear the end of former Gov. Kathleen Blanco’s single term in office, it was considered a big deal that House Republicans were able to form a caucus that actually made a dent in the process, if only to muck things up temporarily for Democrats and the Queen Bee. It was viewed as the beginning of a shift in legislative power and the end of blanket Democratic control in Baton Rouge. By the time Gov. Bobby Jindal took office in 2008, it was even more earth-shattering that Republicans were closing the gap, with 66 legislators to the Democrats’ 76. With the start of Jindal’s second term in 2012, heads were practically spinning when Republicans took a leading 82 seats at the Capitol, 20 more than the Democrats. The Legislature had finally acquired a two-party system in a state where being a “D” once was considered part of one’s legitime. Now, with only two annual sessions remaining in Jindal’s second term, two additional parties have emerged, making Louisiana the only state in the nation with a four-party system — at least in the House, but give it some time. The so-called fiscal hawks, a mostly Republican group of budget conservatives and reformers, have broken ranks with Jindal loyalists. Their moves produced choice and bitter words during the session’s final days. Some Democrats, meanwhile, distanced themselves from the Legislative Black Caucus, which aligned itself with the hawks and pushed its own priorities during lastminute budget negotiations. While longstanding fiscal issues were either resolved or swept under the rug last week as a result of the budget compromise, the political relationships that suffered during the give-and-take could take years to heal. Despite the feel-good chatter floated by some after adjournment, the Lower Chamber sure looked like a House divided against itself. The fact that the fiscal hawks teamed with the Black Caucus, historically a liberal Democratic stronghold, had many GOP lawmakers seeing red. “They stabbed us in the back,” said House Natural Resources Chairman Gordon Dove, R-Houma. “They sold out the Republican Party by cutting a deal with Democrats.” One GOP senator groused, “Do they really think this marriage with the caucus will last, or that it will end amicably?” Given the Louisiana GOP’s penchant for eating its own and the ease of spreading the “backstabbing” allegation via email blasts, the hawks’ flock was systematically picked apart during the session, leaving a strong core of true believers who wanted to limit the use of one-time money on recurring expenses and reform the appropriations process. In the end, they accomplished some of those goals, but not to the extent originally hoped.

Rep. Cameron Henry, R-Metairie, a lead hawk who had a seat at the final budgetnegotiating table, dismissed the criticisms and discounted the notion that the hawks hurt the party. “We’re working across party lines and creating coalitions to pass budget reforms,” Henry said. “We’re reducing the amount of one-time money in the budget. That has always been a must.” There was a bit of screaming and finger-pointing in a GOP Caucus meeting last Wednesday morning, which is how Republicans kicked off the final 36 hours of the session. Sources say it will be a lasting memory. More wiggle room for easing tensions can be found on the Democratic side, where members of all races were happy to see $69 million added to the public school financing formula, half of which will be used for teacher pay raises. It’s a major recurring expense that some Republicans wanted to avoid, and the Democrats couldn’t have secured it without the hawks.

The House and Senate reached an accord before the governor even got to the table. Meanwhile, the hawks wouldn’t have gotten their budget reforms without the Democrats and the Black Caucus. Some Democrats were put off by the caucus’ independent push for more money for Southern and Grambling universities as part of the budget deal, but enough merit was recognized to forestall an internecine war. And while he attempted to take credit for the compromise on the eve of adjournment, Jindal remained a party of one. Lawmakers of all stripes say the House and Senate reached an accord before the governor even got to the table. Maybe the hardships that created this four-party system (five, with Jindal) are the face of genuine compromise, which we so rarely see in the Louisiana Legislature. Or maybe it’s a testament to what happens when political philosophy meets political reality. Either way, the result has overshadowed the importance of being a Republican or a Democrat — and shifted the spotlight to what kind. — Jeremy Alford is a freelance journalist in Baton Rouge.

In 1972 it was placed on the National Register of Historic Places. Both Fort Pike and Fort Macomb need help, but because Fort Macomb was not open to the public before it received hurricane damage, it does not qualify for FEMA rebuilding funds. The Louisiana Office of State Parks is turning to volunteers and the community to help save that crumbling fort. Historian Joseph Yarbrough formed The Fort Pike Foundation in 2006 to raise funds for projects and educational programs at Fort Pike, but much work remains to be done. Stuart Johnson, assistant secretary of State Parks, says FEMA agreed to pay for removal of debris from Fort Pike — a job that has been completed — but declined a request to fund structural repairs. For that, Johnson says, State Parks has asked the state for about $19 million. The state has not yet acted on that request.

Dear Bruce, Because Fort Pike was open to the public before Hurricanes Katrina, Rita and Isaac, it received assistance from FEMA to recover. But right now it is closed indefinitely. It’s worth a visit when it reopens. The fort was named for explorer and soldier Gen. Zebulon Montgomery Pike (1779-1813), the same man for whom the mountain in Colorado is named. Construction of the fort began in 1819 and was completed in 1826. Designed to withstand attacks from the land or the sea, the fort is constructed of brick and masonry on top of a cypress log foundation. Along with the nearby Fort Macomb, Fort Pike was built to prevent enemy access to New Orleans by way of Lake Pontchartrain. It was constructed on the site of earlier fortifications that had been erected in 1793 by former Gov. Francisco Luis Hector, baron de Carondelet. The U.S. government hired contractors James Bennett and Peter Morte of Washington, D.C., to build the two forts, and their designs are nearly identical. Pointed bastions flank the forts’ land and curved walls face the waters of the Rigolets and Chef Menteur Pass. Originally Fort Pike was equipped with cannons that could fire 32-pound cannonballs and some that took 24-pound shot, but they were never fired as weapons against an opposing force. Depending on whether the United States was at war or peace, between one and 400 soldiers were garrisoned there. During the Seminole Wars in the 1830s, Fort Pike was a staging area for U.S. troops en route to Florida and was a collection point for hundreds of Seminole prisoners and their black slaves, who were being transported to Oklahoma. (Seminoles gave refuge to free blacks and escaped slaves, and some of those slaves became servants of certain tribal leaders; others became Black Seminoles.) Cannons were removed from some of the casemates to convert them to prison cells. At one point in the conflict, there were only 66 soldiers to guard 253 prisoners. When Louisiana seceded from the Union in 1861, federal troops occupying the fort surrendered to the Louisiana State Militia without incident. When New Or-

leans fell to Union forces in 1862, Confederate soldiers evacuated both Fort Pike and Fort Macomb. The U.S. Army maintained garrisons at the forts until the 1890s. In 1894, the site was considered for a possible home for people with leprosy, but the plan was rejected after residents

CeleBrate your Father SunDay, June 16th

“My dad taught me how to be a father, how to run a business, and how to grill a perfect steak. I know how lucky I am that I get to work with him and my family every day.”  - Donny Rouse Bring the SteakhouSe to your houSe

Lobsters

steamed Free

DaD-Size Whole loBSterS

Fresh from the icy cold waters of Maine, our 5 to 8 lbs. hard shell lobsters make a great gift and even better meal for Father’s Day. We also have smaller, 1 to 1.5 lbs. lobsters. Don’t forget the butter.

BaCkyarD BurgerS

For dad-worthy burgers, use our fresh, 75% lean ground beef. It’s ground fresh throughout the day and has just the right amount of fat for juicy burgers that aren’t greasy. Form patties, cool in fridge, and add salt and pepper just before cooking. Top with lettuce, pickles, onions, and slices of Creole tomatoes.

Gambit > bestofneworleans.com > JUNE 11 > 2013

There’s no gift your dad will enjoy more this Father’s Day than a really great steakhouse steak. But you don’t have to make a reservation – our butchers will hand cut USDA Choice Angus beef rib eye steaks you can cook at home, or get a whole bone-in rib eye rack. Rib eye steaks and whole racks have a rich, meaty flavor, and are extra juicy and tender.

Getting cocky

The pan-Asian restaurant Lucky Rooster (515 Baronne St., 504-5295825; www.luckyroosternola.com) opened last week in the CBD with an inexpensive menu that reads like a mix between a noodle house, a dim sum parlor and a banh mi joint combined in one modern package. General Manager Joe Briand, who also is the wine director, describes the approach as the greatest hits of casual dishes and street food from an array of Asian cuisines, including Korean-style fried chicken, ramen noodle soups, pork and shrimp dumplings and Mandarin-style chicken salad. Chef Neal Swidler gives all of these standards his own interpretation. One of the banh mi sandwiches is filled with goujajang chili-glazed pork, crispy shallot rings and green papaya slaw, and Sichuan steak au poivre and shiitake mushroom jam fills another. There’s a list of Chinese steamed page 105

creative po-boys in an unconventional setting

How the Po-Boy Festival inspired a unique sandwich shop.

At The Sammich, chef Michael Brewer serves a lobster po-boy, duck fat fries and Brussels sprouts. PHOTO By CHEryL GErBEr

By Ian McNulty

E

ach November, vendors at the Oak Street Po-Boy Festival explore new possiblities for this city’s favorite sandwich, working with offbeat ingredients and combinations to offer one-day wonders on French bread. A few festival hits materialize on menus here and there, but mostly they push the boundaries and then recede into our memories for the rest of the year. But the example set there took root in Michael Brewer’s imagination and eventually inspired this journeyman of the local restaurant scene to start The Sammich inside the Mid-City music hall Chickie Wah Wah with a po-boy menu like no other. In his small, walk-up kitchen, “dressed” still usually means tomatoes and shredded iceberg lettuce, but the overall package is often more like an entree composed on a Leidenheimer loaf instead of a plate. Brewer’s fried lobster po-boy is the best example. Big claw and tail chunks are fried just long enough to crisp the tempura batter before they’re coated with a velvety, outrageously flavorful blend of butter, peanut sauce, Sriracha and mango. Grilled chicken gets new life in another marquee po-boy, thanks to a hybrid dressing that merges kimchee and coleslaw. Spicy, vinegarysharp, but also a little sweet, the stuff oozes and drips all around the char-marked chicken to unite Korean and American barbecue flavors. The roster also includes a fried oyster po-boy with blackening seasoning and Crystal hot sauce beurre blanc, a Cuban sand-

wich imbued with falling-apart, slow- and low-cooked pork shoulder and a pair of shrimp po-boys. One features rather straightforward barbecue shrimp with the addition of avocado mayo, but the other stretches the concept of a fried shrimp po-boy to include pickled okra, which I can’t endorse. Brewer’s small plates make good bar snacks, and they’re as distinctive as the po-boys. Fries cooked in duck fat have twice the crunch of regular fries, and Brussels sprouts are roasted until the outside leaves crackle like chips. There’s a chunky smoked tuna dip and the atypical headcheese is like a loosely packed Cajun version of rillettes — spreadable, chunky and much different from the normal, gelatin-packed loaf. Chickie Wah Wah is more music venue than neighborhood bar, which in some ways amplifies the complications of serving good food in alternative settings. When there’s a big act on stage, a crowd in the room and a cover at the door, the place feels very far from a restaurant. The Sammich shows some significant upsides to the arrangement, however. At lunch, the po-boy window makes an easy stop along a stretch of Canal Street lacking eateries. And in the evening, the prospect of having Tommy Malone, Jon Cleary or Tom McDermott on stage (all of them are on the June calendar) and a lobster po-boy on the bar top sounds like a pretty good dinner date to me.

2011 August Kesseler R Riesling Kabinett Rheingau, geRmany $12-$15 Retail

riesling grapes comprise 80 percent of the south-facing hillside vineyards rising above the rhine river in rhinegau, one of Germany’s most distinguished wineproducing regions. Mild climate, warm summers and porous rocky soils create optimal growing conditions. Fermentation in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks preserves the character of the terroir in this dry riesling by August Kesseler. In the glass, it offers delicate aromas of apple, lemon rind and a hint of peach. On the palate, taste lime, touches of lemon grass and ginger, refreshing minerality and racy acidity on the clean finish. Drink it with crab cakes with roasted tomato salsa and poblano creme fraiche, tuna sashimi, fig compote, mango chutney, fruit-glazed pork chops, boiled seafood and spicy Asian- or Cajuninspired dishes. Buy it at: Martin Wine Cellar, rouses in Uptown, Terranova Brothers Superette and Bacchanal. Drink it at: Martinique Bistro, Cochon, SoBou and red Fish Grill.

interview buns, or bao, with fillings such as grilled shrimp or pulled beef short rib. There’s a meatless option for every category on the menu, including bao with Chinese black beans and eggplant relish and udon noodle soup with tea-smoked tofu and mushrooms. The fortune cookie description says, “House made, astrologically correct, super sized, crispy, classic, obtuse poetry included.” Most menu items are less than $10. The team behind the restaurant includes several local industry veterans. Swidler formerly was chef de cuisine at Emeril’s Delmonico. Briand previously held the dual role of general manager/ wine director at Herbsaint. Their partner Warren Chapoton is a co-owner of the Slice Pizzeria and Juan’s Flying Burrito restaurants. Briand’s wine list focuses on white wines from Germany, Austria and France’s Alsace region, and Christine Jeanine Nielsen is in charge of the cocktail list, which includes house-made sodas. Lucky Rooster serves lunch and dinner Tuesday through Saturday.

os Angeles native Graison Gill moved to New Orleans in 2008 at age 20, began learning the baking arts and within a year had a following for the distinctive, dark-crusted loaves and baguettes he sold at Crescent City Farmers Market. He later returned to California to undertake a professional baking course and moved back to New Orleans in December 2012 to open Bellegarde Bakery (504-827-0008; www.bellegardebakery.wordpress.com), a small-production bakery in Broadmoor. He doesn’t sell directly from the bakery, but shoppers can find Bellegarde breads at some wine and specialty food shops and from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tuesday at the Crescent City Farmers Market (200 Broadway St.; www. crescentcityfarmersmarket.com).

What do people taste when they eat your bread? Gill: They’re tasting the choices I made, and the weather the day before, the humidity, if there was a thunderstorm or not. All of that affects the way your bread tastes. Then it comes down to the flour, the salt, the choices for the fermentation, the amount of yesterday’s starter that goes into today’s starter. There’s math and science to it, but really baking is flour, water, time, humidity and the choices the baker is making. Do you think the artisan approach is a throwback or the wave of the future? G: It’s retro-innovation. We look to the past every single day with this work, but with the foresight of what we have access to today. You can only talk about po-boy loaves for so long. How far back does that tradition even go? Baguettes, rye bread, the country loaf, these are hundreds of years old. That artisanal approach to food is getting better here now, and I’m glad to be a part of it. Are there local traditions or influences that inspire you? G: I’m inspired by what chefs are doing with farm-to-table cooking. There’s no reason why that approach should bypass bakers. I’m working on a German Coast rye, I want to do a rice bread, I’m talking to NOLA Brewing about doing a bread with the spent yeast from their Hopitoulas (ale). We’re in such a breadbasket here, so why not make some music with the instruments at hand instead of ordering off a catalog? — IAN MCNULTY

To mark Father’s Day and raise funds for a new culinary library, the Link Restaurant Group and the Southern Food and Beverage Museum (SoFAB) host Beasts and Books on June 16 in Central City, near the museum’s future home. Described as a combination indoor picnic and culinary book fair, the event will fill the Ashe Cultural Arts Center (1712 Oretha Castle Haley Blvd., 504-569-9070; www.ashecac.org) with food booths from local restaurants and bins of new and used culinary books for sale from a wide range of local stores and organizations. Chef Donald Link’s restaurants Cochon, Herbsaint and recently opened Peche Seafood Grill will serve food, along with Boucherie, Cafe Reconcile, Cowbell, Parkway Bakery & Tavern, Pizza Delicious, local caterer Linda Green (aka “The Yakamein Lady”) and others. There will be drinks, live music, performances from parade dance groups, a bake sale and children’s activities. SoFAB plans to open the library later this year at 1609 Oretha Castle Haley

Blvd. in partnership with the New Orleans Public Library. Beasts and Books is scheduled from 12:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday. All-inclusive tickets cost $50 ($10 for children age 10 and under) and include a picnic lunch from Cochon, drinks and samples of food from the vendors. General admission is $5 and guests can buy individual items from vendors. Tickets are available at www.southernfood.org and at the door.

Each year, the Louisiana Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (LA/SPCA) asks New Orleanians to contribute to its cause by going out to eat. This year, its annual Pause 4 Dinner event extends to lunch as well, and the list of participating restaurants has grown to nearly 60. The eateries have pledged to donate to the LA/SPCA 20 percent of their proceeds from lunch and dinner Thursday, June 13. There are participating restaurants throughout the New Orleans area, ranging across the dining spectrum. For a complete list, visit www. la-spca.org/restaurants.

Trends, notes, quirks and quotes from the world of food. “To me, a cocktail should never be seen as a clumsy avenue to intoxication that gets set down every time you need to have a serious conversation. A cocktail should be an accessory. It should be rocked like a Vera Wang dress on the red carpet. ‘What are you drinking?’ should be synonymous with ‘Who are you wearing?’” — gerry Jobe, cocktail consultant with the Vancouver-based niche Custom Cocktails and Concepts, from an essay on www.medium.com.

The French Quarter bars Erin Rose and Molly’s at the Market were founded by the late barkeep and raconteur Jim Monaghan and they share a lot of DNA. Soon, they will both have something in common in the food department as well. Cam Boudreaux and April Bellow, who run Killer Poboys (811 Conti St., 504-252-6745; www.killerpoboys.com) inside Erin Rose, plan to open a taco stand inside Molly’s at the Market (1107 Decatur St., 504-525-5169; www.mollysatthemarket.net). They intend to launch with a three-day pop-up edition July 18-20, with future pop-up dates in the works and regular hours in late summer or early fall. Meanwhile, business continues as usual at Killer Poboys, which serves from noon to midnight every day except Tuesday. Boudreaux hasn’t announced a name for the new venture, and the menu is still in the works, but he says the approach will be similar to Killer Poboys, which serves imaginative, multi-ethnic interpretations of the sandwich. A goat taco will be on the menu, along with vegan and vegetarian options, and as at Killer Poboys, the taco operation will source many ingredients from local suppliers. The concept is coming along at an interesting time for casual eats in the French Quarter. Down the block from Molly’s at the Market, the team behind the craft cocktail bars Cure and Bellocq are renovating the former bar Pravda into Cane & Table (1113 Decatur St., phone n.a.), a tavern built around craft rum cocktails and a menu of Caribbean-inspired dishes from Adam Biderman, chef and founder of the Company Burger. “We’re all about bringing better food downtown,” Boudreaux says. “I think people want handmade food from a chef who cares. In fact, I’m betting my career on it.”

what to know before you go

Kennalot Rivertown Theatres presents the Monty Python musical. By Brad Rhines

T

plays to devotees of musical theater with winks and nods to Broadway mainstays including The Phantom of the Opera, West Side Story and Guys and Dolls. Spamalot’s self-awareness becomes part of the plot in Act 2, when King Arthur and his knights must put on a Broadway musical as part of their Grail quest. The song-and-dance number, “You Won’t Succeed On Broadway,” is a big moment for Sir Robin, and it’s the kind of exaggerated parody that has earned Graham a following among New Orleans audiences. “I do love having the big second-act number,” Graham says. “Sir Robin has been dying to break out into a big, showbizzy number the whole show and finally gets his chance. It’s a joy to do.” While Graham takes advantage of this opportunity to ham it up on stage, his primary approach to the character is more subtle throughout. “The role is really quite underplayed,” Graham says. “The dialogue is so funny that very little is needed to put it over.” Spamalot gives producers the flexibility to incorporate site-specific humor. When the cast addresses the audience directly, the script calls for particular references to their location, whether it’s New York City, London or Kenner. Rucker doesn’t want to give

away any punch lines, but some tweaks have Ricky Graham (front left, wearing been made with local black shirt) and Mike Harkins (wearing audiences in mind. crown) star in Spamalot. “They want you to PHOTO BY CHERYL GERBER make fun of where you are,” Rucker says. “Just being in Kenner has allowed us to milk a bunch of laughs out Spamalot of that.” JUNE Graham says he 8 p.m. Fri.-Sat., 2 p.m. Sun. expects some crowd Rivertown Theatres for participation along the the Performing Arts lines of The Rocky Horror Picture Show, but 325 Minor St., Kenner he and Rucker stress (504) 461-9475 that a textbook knowledge of Monty Python www.rivertowntheatres.com or Broadway history isn’t a requirement for enjoying the show. “That’s kind of the beauty of it,” says Rucker. “It’s not exclusive. If you don’t know [Monty Python and the Holy Grail], it’s still a really funny story with really good songs.”

he jokes in Rivertown Theatres’ latest production aren’t laser-guided missiles. They’re more like an 800-pound cow launched from a catapult. “This isn’t high art,” says Gary Rucker, who’s directing the show for Theatre 13. “It’s Spamalot.” The musical follows the basic story from the British troupe’s classic 1975 film Monty Python and the Holy Grail and incorporates bits that poke fun at Broadway conventions. There are many memorable Holy Grail jokes, but audience members don’t need a reference point to appreciate the ridiculousness of sneering French soldiers launching a cow at King Arthur and his knights in the absurdist reimagining of the quest for the Holy Grail. Written by Monty Python’s Eric Idle, Spamalot was a smash hit on Broadway and in London’s West End. When the rights recently became available for independent productions, Rucker and Theater 13 co-founder Kelly Fouchi jumped at the chance to produce the show at Rivertown Theatres. “Kelly is a fan of anything that spoofs Broadway, and I’ve been a Monty Python fan since I was a kid,” Rucker says. “So this show was kind of the perfect storm for both of us.” Rucker and Fouchi cast much of the show by recruiting friends whose enthusiasm for the production matches the over-the-top spirit of the show. “Growing up as a kid, my favorite theater memories were always in summer, like when you go see a big musical with all your friends,” Rucker says. “We figured Spamalot was a perfect show to capture that feeling again. This is how I want to spend my summer, doing this with a bunch of people I really enjoy.” The cast includes Mike Harkins as King Arthur, Mason Wood as Sir Lancelot the Homicidally Brave, Ricky Graham as Sir Robin, the Not-QuiteSo-Brave-as-Sir-Lancelot and Marc Fouchi as Sir Dennis Galahad the Dashingly Handsome. Rucker also performs in the show, playing Patsy, the king’s servant. Rucker isn’t the only Monty Python fan in the cast. Wood shares his devotion to the source material, and when Rucker first sent him the script and asked him to get “off book” — memorize his lines — Wood told him, “I’ve been off book since I was 15 years old!” Monty Python and the Holy Grail attracted a devoted following over the years, and fans of the movie will recognize gags like the clip-clop of imaginary horses, the Knights Who Say “Ni!” and the knight who insists that his dismemberment by King Arthur’s sword is merely a flesh wound. But the show also

Ariel Pink 10 p.m. Saturday Tipitina’s 501 Napoleon Ave. (504) 895-8477 www.tipitinas.com

Ariel “Pink” Rosenberg is a genius and a fraud. His Haunted Graffiti live shows are an unmissable spectacle and an unwatchable debacle. His latest album, Mature Themes (4AD), the zenith and nadir of his illustrious, anonymous recording career, is the best and the worst record of the year. It’s been hailed and hurled at; various people have called it addictive and nauseating, invigorating and infuriating, shiny and swampy, visionary and proudly hideous, vital and several species of awful. Its 13 tracks are of a modern vintage, lowbrow gone hi-fi. Squares go round and round. H-bombs fall on G-spots. Schnitzels do the boogie and nymphos get a symphony. Soft rock rocks hard. Plots twist: In the opening minute, “Kinski Assassin” kills off a minor character in a major key. “Only In My Dreams” pops up in out-of-print comics’ thought bubbles. “Driftwood” drifts into wide-open basses. Nothing lasts forever; “Nostradamus & Me” tries. “Baby” becomes an adjective (“You’re so ...”). Shebops shebop. Fade to pink. Purple Pilgrims and Kirin J. Callinan open.

This Is the End (r) Directed by seth rogen and evan goldberg starring James franco, seth rogen, Jonah Hill and emma watson wide release

beware the Hollywood vanity project, especially those in which famous young actors trade on their formerly good names to indulge whatever cinematic fantasies lurk in their celebrity-addled minds. on the surface, This Is the End seems the ultimate fulfillment of that ever-present danger: James franco, seth rogen, Jonah Hill and just about every other thirtyish male movie star in america join questionable forces to bring us the apocalypse, Hollywood-style. earthquakes, sink holes, raging demons from Hell, you name it — it’s all here to interrupt an otherwise happening party at franco’s stylish new Hollywood home (“i designed it myself!” franco says). everyone’s playing themselves, or rather spoofing some version of their public personas, which works best for those who keep up with that sort of thing. the entire movie is vulgar beyond description. but this directorial debut from rogen and evan goldberg (writer/producer of Pineapple Express and The Green Hornet) scores surprising points with selfeffacing humor and sheer audacity. if you ever wanted to see Jonah Hill channel linda blair in The Exorcist, this is your chance. — Ken Korman

Seventy-five-year-old British filmmaker Ken Loach fashioned a long and fruitful career by focusing his work on the kind of true-to-life working-class characters seldom found in mainstream movies. Often described as social realist, Loach’s films feature naturalistic dialogue that sometimes seems improvised but actually sticks closely to carefully crafted scripts. Winner of the Jury Prize at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival, The Angels’ Share gradually develops two remarkable qualities not normally associated with Loach’s movies: warmth and humor. No one would confuse The Angels’ Share with a full-on comedy in the traditional sense. But with its light tone and uplifting message, the film does constitute a welcome late-career surprise from the director. The Angels’ Share starts out as harshly realistic as any of Loach’s films. A charismatic kid with a penchant for explosive violence on the streets of Glasgow, Scotland, Robbie (newcomer Paul Brannigan) escapes incarceration only by virtue of his pregnant girlfriend Leonie (Siobhan Reilly). But Leonie’s uncles want to kill Robbie, and her father tries to bribe him to leave town. While serving his hours of community service, Robbie meets a group of equally wayward miscreants along with work supervisor Harry (John Henshaw), who takes Robbie under his wing. A new world opens up for the ragtag crew when whisky aficionado Harry takes them on a tour of one of Scotland’s great distilleries. The film’s title refers to the 2 percent that evaporates while the spirits age in oak barrels. The whisky becomes a metaphor for the possibility of finding something of value and meaning in an era where more than a million young people are unemployed in Great Britain alone. Then the whole thing turns into a wonderfully low-tech heist movie. By giving his typically troubled characters a believable shot at redemption, Loach opens up his politically progressive worldview to a wider potential audience. But The Angels’ Share transcends politics by making its case solely through character and story. It’s hard to imagine anyone objecting to the film on sociopolitical grounds. Its only overt message is that even the direst circumstances can be transformed by simple acts of kindness and respect. Just about everyone can raise a glass to that. — KEN KORMAN

There is still truth to the old adage “Seeing is believing,” but it also is true that technology filters much of what we see and how we see it. Digital devices render images as pixels, but pictures on a printed page employ the larger dots of the halftone process. Abstract painter Deborah Pelias just lets dots be dots in her new Sanity canvases, but not all dots are created equal. Pelias is all about process as her canvases evolve from layers of paint that are applied and sanded as dots emerge, recede and change shapes in works like Prototype (pictured), in which they assume ambiguously trippy patterns. Confronted with such dots, our eyes search for the images we have come to expect, yet they remain elusive, so sightings of saints, Elvis or Marilyn Monroe sometimes occur even if no such miraculous visitations were intended. Some ancient peoples, including Hindus and Mayans, hypothesized that matter arose from the dance of shapeshifting atoms, and Pelias revels in the analogous ambiguity of her emerging dot patterns. Pelias says, “This is where the magic happens ...” as the painting begins to reveal “a voice of its own.” Can a leopard change its spots? Maybe not, but in ancient Mayan religion, jaguars were believed to be divine beings who could assume almost any form. Paul Tarver’s Jaguar Empire paintings are based on the rare wall paintings that still exists in surviving Mayan temples. But his focus is on their overall aura rather than the minutiae of their details, hence they are impressionistic tributes to a lost and, for its time, advanced civilization. Tarver employs mottled brushwork as “a subtle homage” to the jaguar’s spotted fur, but it is his distillation of forms that reminds us of the Mayan influence on design ranging from art deco and high modernism to the postmodernism of 20th-century architecture. — D. ERIC BOOKHARDT

THRU Pulitzer Prize-winning juNE 8 p.m. Fri.-Sun. Clybourne Park is a fullShadowbox Theatre throttle drama getting a full-throttle treatment in 2400 St. Claude Ave. its regional premiere at the (504) 298-8676 Shadowbox Theatre. It’s about housing and racial iswww.theshadowboxtheatre.com sues, and the script is both subtle and full of surprises. Under the direction of Francesca McKenzie, a compelling cast brings the bizarre story vividly to life. Playwright Bruce Norris picks up on the conflicts in Lorraine Hansberry’s 1959 classic A Raisin in the Sun, about a black family moving to a white neighborhood in Chicago. Act 1 of Clybourne Park revisits the Rasin story from the perspectives of white residents battling over the makeup of the neighborhood. The bigotry aimed at keeping African Americans out of the neighborhood is not overcome by liberal impulses; it’s scorched by an unrelated emotional volcano. Middle-aged, middle-class Bev and Russ are packing to move. Russ (Jackson Townsend) is acerbic; his wife Bev (Mary Pauley), a nervous wreck. We learn later that Russ has been petulant since their son Ken returned from the Korean War and hanged himself. Norris moves with grace between comic traceries of small talk and a lava flow of emotions. Francine (Monica R. Harris), who is black, works as a maid and she and her husband Albert (Martin Bradford) stoically endure condescending white employers. A clueless minister (Dylan Hunter) pays a call. So does neighbor Karl (Ian Hoch) and his deaf, pregnant wife Betsy (Emilie Whelan). The character Karl appeared in Raisin, where he tried to bribe the black family not to move into this white neighborhood. He is head of the neighborhood society and informs Russ that the buyers of the house are black. He pressures Russ to break the deal, telling him property values will fall if black people move into the neighborhood. Amid growing anger and confusion, Karl asks the maid and her husband what they think. An infuriated Russ responds, dredging up past personal conflicts with his neighbor. Act 2 takes place in the same location, but in 2009. Karl’s predictions — judging by Adam Tourek’s set — were surpassed. The house is a rundown, litter-strewn tenement covered with graffiti. A new neighborhood committee is meeting to evaluate the plans of potential new buyers of the place. This group is interracial and includes members related to the characters from the first act — played by the same actors. The community has become predominantly African-American, and there’s speculation that low housing prices could attract new residents. A white family wants to buy the house, and residents fear the onset of gentrification. Norris balances droll rejoinders with the touchy subject of race, and Cripple Creek Theatre Company gives Clybourne Park a masterful outing. Don’t miss it. — DALT WONK

Executive Director Job Posting

Gambit > bestofneworleans.com > JUNE 11 > 2013

Dear Claire, The conflict between family and career is becoming one of the top issues in our culture and economy. In her book, “Lean In,” Facebook CEO and former Google VP Sheryl Sandberg states, “43% of highly qualified women with children are leaving careers or off-ramping for a period of time.” She further points out, “Only 74% of professional women will rejoin the workforce in any capacity, and 40% will return Grant Cooper to full time jobs.” Harvard and Wharton grad Paulette Light, author of an April 2013 “Atlantic Monthly” article, utilized her 10-year exit from the workforce to create a neighborhood preschool, serve on the board of a charter school, and launch a nanny agency. In today’s two-income economic environment, where young women are graduating from college at higher rates than men and many have sizable student loans to repay, such an option is not always financially feasible. According to Joan Williams, director of the Center for WorkLife Law at the University of California, Hastings College of Law, “One study found that women who took just one year out of the workforce sacrificed 20% of their lifetime earnings. Women who took two or three years earned 30% less.” You mentioned that you “plan” to leave, and that is the most important thing. Have a good plan that incorporates both the needs of your family and your career. One of the most critical decisions you (and your partner) will be making is child care. A 2012 “TIME” Magazine article by Bonnie Rochman asked, “But what does high-quality child care mean anyway? It’s not about preschool children being drilled on their multiplication tables. Instead, it refers to low ratios of students to teachers and developmentally appropriate books and toys, as well as attentive teachers attuned to their students’ developmental needs.” Her article also highlighted a study in the journal “Developmental Psychology” confirming the importance of good child care. “People who attended high-quality child care in the 1970s are still reaping the benefits 30 years later. In this study, researchers at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill found that graduates of high-quality child care had more years of education and were four times more likely to have earned college degrees than members of a control group.” Available evidence shows that the foundation of children’s success rests on the quality of the relationship with parents and caregivers during the earliest years of life. Claire, here are some suggestions going forward: • To access the Quality Start Childcare Rating System and find a suitable child care center, go to www.grslouisiana.com/parents and also check out www.laccrra.org, another excellent site for Louisiana child care resources. • Don’t “drop out” of your network. Maintain your contacts with your colleagues, and consider taking an evening course to sharpen your skills. Volunteer to help out at professional events. • Attend seminars, workshops, and conferences in your field. Try to find time to attend meetings, ask colleagues if there are consulting projects you can do from home. • During the months or years as you leave work to start your family, take the time to stay current on your field. Continue to read journals and articles, and renew your membership in professional organizations.
