seven things to do in seven days Baths Wed. June 19 | Will Wiesenfeld’s two albums as Baths — 2010’s Cerulean and last month’s Obsidian (Anticon) — are blackand-blue punching bags, the Angeleno’s introverted pop vocals and satiny veneers cut, beaten and whipped into a dance music frenzy. Houses opens at the Hi-Ho Lounge. PAGE 36. Twin Shadow Thu. June 20 | Entering the picture in 2010 with his elliptical homebody-soul debut Forget, George Lewis Jr. instead went big with 2012 blowout Confess (4AD), stuffing every track with hyperrhythmic studio doodads and arena-begging New Wave choruses.

T.I. | The title of T.I.’s 2012 album Trouble Man: Heavy is the Head refers to a soundtrack Marvin Gaye created for a movie of the same name, but it features an all-star hip-hop guest list including P!nk, Andre 3000 and Lil Wayne. The video for lead single “Ball” was filmed in the Hollygrove neighborhood and Wayne appears on the single “Wit Me” from forthcoming sequel Trouble Man: He Who Wears the Crown.

Louisiana’s Lil’ Band o’ Gold gears up for round two with Led Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant. By Scott Jordan


t a former feed store and semi-refurbished warehouse in the shadows of the downtown railroad tracks in Lafayette, the garage doors are open but the stifling June air doesn’t move. It’s a hazy, moonless Tuesday night where patrons and liquor bottles drip rivulets. The early action on stage matches the atmosphere: bandmembers alternately tune their instruments and mill around on the back porch, while a temperamental amp at soundcheck tests the patience of Lil’ Band o’ Gold frontmen C.C. Adcock, Steve Riley and David Egan. “Fifteen years ago when we started this band, we used to do Monday night gigs at the Swampwater Saloon,” guitarist Adcock says to the crowd. Accordionist Riley deadpans, “Look at us now — we’ve come all the way to Tuesday nights at the Feed & Seed.” Wisecracking aside, tonight’s gig is no random show, but a vital tune-up. Robert Plant has hand-picked the band to open a string of Southern dates on his summer tour, including his July 17 New Orleans show at the Mahalia Jackson Theater for the Performing Arts. The Golden God’s Lil’ Band o’ Gold endorse-

ment continues the relationship Robert Plant, center, started when Plant teamed up performed with Lil’ with the southwest Louisiana Band o’ Gold at supergroup to record two tracks Tipitina’s in April for the 2007 Fats Domino tribute 2007. album, Goin’ Home. (Louisiana blues aficionado Plant was in PHOTO BY ERIKA GOLDRING rehearsals for the tour and unavailable for an interview.) The upcoming shows with Plant introduce The band to substantial new audiences and music-industry contacts — no small feat for an ensemble that’s had its share of triumphs, heartbreak and a major personnel change. “This new chapter is that process of being done with grieving, of digging deeper and seeing what we can do, discover and create,” says songwriter and pianist Egan. He’s referencing the departure of 76-year-old drummer PAGE 8


Arlen “Benny” Cenac Jr.,

Cenac used his personal and business accounts to channel illegal campaign contributions to U.S. Sens. David Vitter ($15,000) and Mary Landrieu ($25,300) using cashier’s checks bearing the names of his relatives, friends and business associates. The senators were not aware of the scheme, according to the feds. Cenac faces up to five years in prison when he is sentenced Sept. 5.

and vocalist warren storm, the swamp pop legend who helped anchor the band by crooning classic south Louisiana ballads like “This should Go On Forever” and “seven Letters,” but his former bandmates say they were wounded and deeply disappointed when storm backed out of all of The band’s spring shows. (storm did not return a call for comment.) “it’s a shame he’s not with us, but this band is too strong and too important to let it go,” Riley says. That’s not empty braggadocio. The band’s musical prowess, including the formidable Adcock/egan/Riley frontline, harnesses sonny Landreth’s bassist Dave Ranson, pedal steel virtuoso Richard Comeaux, ace blues guitarist Lil’ Buck sinegal, guest vocalist and swamp pop royalty Tommy McLain, and saxophonists Dickie Landry and Pat Breaux, who’ve collectively played with Otis Redding, Philip Glass, Bob Dylan, Beausoleil and Zachary Richard. Then there’s their new bandmate — a 78-year old Creole percussionist with one good eye. Nickname: Jockey. He drums on cardboard boxes and was an early mentor to warren storm.

Clarence “Jockey” etienne was one of the driving forces on the 1950s-1960s excello swampblues recordings out of Crowley, La. He propelled timeless tracks like slim Harpo’s “i Got Love if You want it,” “Baby scratch My Back” and Guitar Gable’s rumba instrumental “Congo Mambo.” etienne also is the engine of Creole Zydeco Farmers; the Plant gigs don’t faze him, as he’s played to enormous festival crowds in Montreal and Brazil with the Farmers. “There were so many people in Rio, they looked like ants,” etienne says. sitting outside at his carport a recent sunday morning, the razor-thin etienne reclines in a worn patio chair, sporting faded jeans, flip-flops and wispy white shoulder-length hair behind an L.A. Lakers cap. “with the Zydeco Farmers, you gotta beat on that drum, bang, bang, bang, with that backbeat and heavy kick drum,” he says. “in zydeco, you gotta be heard — to hell with it, even when the frontman’s taking a solo. with Lil’ Band o’ Gold, you have to take it from one thing to another. They’re great musicians,

and you gotta find which way to go to blend in with them.” Etienne tunes his drums low. At the Feed & Seed show, that subtle change, along with his unique complementary cardboardbox stickwork, brought a bottom-heavy and swampier sound to The band. “There’s more an element of intensity as opposed to loudness and raucousness,” says Egan from the road in New Mexico. “At once, it’s darker, spookier and more mysterious. It makes us all rethink our approach. Not so much flailing away with wild abandon, but rather thinking, ‘How do we tighten the focus to this picture and make it more three-dimensional?’” This new chapter is a testament to the core and brotherhood of the band. Ever since Adcock and Riley cooked up The band’s blueprint over a Maison Creole pork chop sandwich, the band’s sound has survived the logistical challenges of multiple members juggling solo careers and other side projects. (For example, Riley’s Courtbouillon, his trio with Wayne Toups and Wilson Savoy, won this year’s Grammy Award for Best Regional Roots Album, and Egan just released a knockout eponymous album.) “I think everyone in this band needs other outlets to satisfy their urge to play music,” says elder statesman Landry. “It’s also a vehicle for songwriters. I credit CC and Steve for keeping this band alive.” Landry and Adcock have long lived in adjoining apartments in downtown Lafayette, hence their complex’s moniker “DisGraceland.” For Adcock, the The band bandmembers’ distinct, sometimes outsized personalities feed into the music. “We’ve always said we’ve got nine or 10 members, about 25 egos — and only a few livers left among us,” he says. “So sometimes shit goes down and gets sideways and you wonder if it’s all worth it and if we should keep booking it. But all that bitching and humbug, that’s also the tension that causes us to rock and gives an edge — keeps us a bit menacing — the way real rock ’n’ roll should be, behind all those sweetheart ballads.”

Plant showed his love and command of 1950s R&B and rock ’n’ roll with his early 1980s Honeydrippers project; how could he not appreciate an Acadiana band whose members grew up on Phil Phillips’ “Sea of Love” and for whom “Good Rockin’ at Midnight” is practically a mission statement? Plant was so taken with The band after the Fats Domino tribute sessions that he joined the band at Tipitina’s for a surprise 30-minute set where he led the band through swamp pop, blues, and some teases of “Black Dog” and “Whole Lotta Love.” The vocalist has stayed in touch with the band since then, even as he navigated the massive pressure and expectations of the one-off Led Zeppelin reunion concert in London, and mainstream success with his Alison Krauss collaboration. (The two performed at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival together in 2008.) When Lil’ Band o’ Gold played Austin’s Continental Club last December, Plant was in the audience. “He’s always bringing up old records we could do well together and maybe getting back in [the studio] to cut a few — he’s such a band flirt!” jokes Adcock. Lil’ Band o’ Gold landed worthy deals for three of its recent projects: a full Fats Domino tribute album, The Lil’ Band o’ Gold Plays Fats, and its latest album, The Promised Land, with its accompanying documentary film on the band. (The albums are currently available only at shows and as Australian imports.) The The band film is unreleased, but evokes Les Blank’s groundbreaking regional music documentaries. It’s a tribute to southwest Louisiana culture and the band’s talent and resilience, as Adcock soldiered on to complete the film in the aftermath of executive producer Tarka Cordell’s 2008 suicide. That came on the heels of the band’s triumphant time with Plant — and perhaps the upcoming tour will help bring The Promised Land full circle. “I’m used to playing folk music and traditional music with my band [The Mamou Playboys],” Riley says. “It’s much more of an even-keeled ride. Lil’ Band o’ Gold is rock ’n’ roll, and rock ’n’ roll has different rules. This is a roller coaster, and with all the personalities, you just gotta hold on. The lows are lower and the highs are higher, and you just gotta ride it out and keep going.”

scuttlebutt Quote of the week

    “He’s very sincere. He wants to go  back to Louisiana and never wants to be  heard from ever again.” — Andrew Stanley, attorney for Harvey Updyke Jr., the man who poured herbicide on the roots of the live oak trees that were a landmark at Auburn University. Stanley, a University of Alabama fan who poisoned the trees in 2010 during a football rivalry, pleaded guilty to one count of unlawful damage of an animal or crop facility, according to the Associated Press. Stanley did not say where his client would be living in Louisiana, but Updyke’s troubles are not over. He still must serve five years’ probation for his crime, and the district attorney’s office of Lee County, Ala., is seeking $1,042,000 in damages for the trees.

f Mayor Mitch Landrieu and New Orleans Police Chief Ronal Serpas asserted the right to collect your telephone records without your knowledge or consent — all in the name of reducing street crime — would you agree? If you’re not a criminal, you should have nothing to hide, right? That’s the argument being advanced by President Barack Obama and many members of Congress after a whistleblower in the National Security Agency (NSA) revealed the extent to which NSA keeps track of domestic and overseas communications. Street crime has killed many more New Orleanians than has terrorism in the last 10 years, and yet few here would dream of giving city officials unfettered access to their daily communications. Many Americans, though, seem to be just fine with it. A Washington Post-Pew Research Center poll last week reported 56 percent of Americans thought the practice “acceptable,” while 45 percent thought the government should be allowed to go even further, monitoring Americans’ online activity at will — all in the name of “stopping terrorism.” Those statistics are as alarming as the monitoring itself. The name for that monitoring is PRISM, and it consists of two broad programs. The first exclusively involves telephone records in the United States. The second, and more intrusive, involves collecting data on overseas users of many popular web services and Internet providers. This metadata, we’re told, allows government officials to look for communication patterns and to request a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant when they suspect danger. (Security experts admit that Americans’ data gets mixed up in there, too.) Does this mean the government analyzes citizens’ every phone call, every keystroke, every Google search? No. But the federal government has assembled an apparatus that would allow this or any future administration to do these things should it so choose. The U.S. government hasn’t implemented a surveillance society, but it has erected the framework for one, and that should be a bipartisan concern. Last week, James Clapper, U.S. director of national intelligence, pushed back by saying, “PRISM is not an undisclosed collection or data mining program.” Clapper is, at best, splitting hairs. At a Senate hearing in March, The Washington Post reported, Clapper answered “No, sir” to the question, “Does the NSA collect any type of data at all on millions or hundreds of millions of Americans?” That was a lie, and watching Obama and his partisans attempt to parse the facts on this was grim stuff. Not that the GOP has the high moral ground here, either. Under President George W. Bush, the Patriot Act expanded government’s ability to conduct surveillance on its own citizens, and the

Orwellian-titled act was supported and reauthorized overwhelmingly by members of Congress from both parties. Those who defend federal data collection say that crunching the material is done by computer, the same way companies like Facebook, Amazon or Google track users. The comparison doesn’t hold. First, having your movements tracked by a private company is an opt-in process; no one forces you to use Facebook, and the privacy issues are spelled out for anyone who cares to read them. Second, under PRISM, the feds can and do go directly into private companies’ servers and harvest data without getting a FISA warrant. The final argument is that governmental requests for specific data must be run through the Foreign Intelligence Service Court (FISC), which can approve or deny specific surveillance warrants. But The Wall Street Journal reported last week that FISC has denied only 11 of more than 33,000 requests made since FISC was

America needs a serious discussion about what liberties it is willing to give up in the ‘war against terror.’ established in the 1970s. That’s not judicial (or judicious) oversight; that’s a rubber stamp and a prescription for abuse. Political reaction has been contradictory at times. Obama and some members of Congress have suggested the program was really no secret at all. On the other hand, Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., said that Glenn Greenwald of The Guardian, one of the journalists who reported on PRISM, should face legal consequences, as should any “reporter disclosing something that would so severely compromise national security.” Richard Clarke, a counterterrorism expert who served under the last three presidents, wrote in the New York Daily News, “I am troubled by the precedent of stretching a law on domestic surveillance almost to the breaking point. On issues so fundamental to our civil liberties, elected leaders should not be so needlessly secretive.” We agree. Now that the word is out — officially — America needs a serious discussion about what liberties it is willing to give up in the “war against terror.” In the end, terrorists aren’t the only threat to our freedoms.

report from red stick

The last true liberal?

Gambit > > JUNE 18 > 2013

hen I told Sen. Karen Carter Peterson, D-New Orleans, last week that she may be the last true liberal in the Louisiana Legislature, she didn’t try to shake the label or qualify her record, one which dates to her winning a House seat in 1999. Instead, she offered a polite, “Well, thank you. I’ll take that, I’m proud of that.” She was back in New Orleans after visiting the White House, where a friend of hers lives. Peterson isn’t the only liberal Democrat in the Legislature, but she is among the very few who consistently champion liberal causes without second-guessing herself or softpedaling her positions. The senator’s district affords her this freedom. It stretches from downtown New Orleans, including the Superdome, through parts of Treme and Mid-City, up South Carrollton Avenue toward the Riverbend and into Jefferson Parish to Bunche Village. Her 5th District is 62 percent Democrat and 52 percent African-American. “My votes may not be the same as those cast by lawmakers from north Louisiana or rural areas, but then again we don’t have the same constituencies,” she says. During the session that adjourned June 6, Peterson tried to repeal Louisiana’s creationism law, opposed a number of pro-gun bills, stepped into heated abortion


debates, advocated for equal pay for women (she was in D.C. last week for the 50th anniversary of the federal Equal Pay Act), and pushed lawmakers to accept President Barack Obama’s Medicaid expansion, which Gov. Bobby Jindal and Republicans blocked. Peterson, who also chairs the Louisiana Democratic Party, cast the only vote in the Legislature this session against the state budget, which was supported by Jindal. She said it was the first time she has voted against a budget since being elected. “By constraining our options and ignoring some hard truths, this budget is more broken than ever,” she said before casting her vote against the spending plan. It doesn’t take a highly paid political consultant to discern that Peterson is exposing herself to political liabilities by taking such stances. That she’s the chair of the state Democratic Party only makes her a bigger target, and she admits as much. A few days after the session adjourned, the Louisiana Republican Party officially dubbed Peterson the “biggest loser of the 2013 legislative session” because she opposed the budget and made an “absurd statement that opposition to Obamacare is driven by racism.” From the Senate floor, Peterson said of the federal health care debate: “It’s not about how many dollars we can receive. It’s not about that. You ready? It’s about race. I know

Peterson cast the only vote in the Legislature this session against the state budget. nobody wants to talk about that. It’s about the race of this African-American president.” She didn’t directly call anyone racist, as has been alleged, but her statement was a clarion call nonetheless, coming as it did from a party leader. In the aftermath, she hasn’t directly addressed it. State GOP Executive Director Jason Dore says there could be political ramifications. “It will be interesting to see if Democrat candidates, including (U.S. Sen.) Mary Landrieu, begin to distance themselves from this extremely liberal and out-of-touch Democratic Party chairwoman,” he said. Predictably, Jindal jumped on the antiPeterson bandwagon, calling her health care comments “pathetic.” Media tried to corner her at the Capitol to get a response, rather than an explanation. “The political heat, the volume, was really turned up,” she said. “I

had not seen that in all the years I’ve been up there.” What remains to be seen is whether Peterson can maintain her liberal stripes, serve a high-profile Senate district and guide the Louisiana Democratic Party through elections for the U.S. Senate and governor. Peterson says she plans to put a crackerjack Dem team in place and stay in “very close contact” with her constituents, but she didn’t offer details as to how she would accomplish those goals simultaneously. Given the challenges she faces as party chair and the controversy surrounding her “It’s about race” remark, Peterson will have to do a lot of juggling to stay ahead of her rivals in the GOP — and keep up with her colleagues in the Senate. With Obama faring better than Jindal in recent state polls, she may have a fighting chance. Then again, if Republicans continue their attacks, she’ll likely spend as much time defending herself as she does her liberal Democratic values. That will make the next two years the most challenging of her career. — Jeremy Alford is a freelance journalist in Baton Rouge. Contact him at Jeremy@ Follow him on Twitter: @ alfordwrites.

BLaKepONTCHARTRAIN New Orleans Know-it-all Questions for Blake: Hey Blake,

Why are all the new streetcars red? I thought the Canal streetcar was going to be blue. I remember a blue streetcar. What happened to it?

Gambit > > JUNE 18 > 2013

Karen Fernandez


Dear Karen, You are not imagining things. There was a blue streetcar — just one — but it was on the Riverfront line, and only for a short time in 2006. As you may remember, Hurricane Katrina was not kind to our streetcar system. Most of the Riverfront cars were in the Canal Street station, along with the cars of the newly restored Canal Street line, when the federal floodwalls and levees failed. The floods ruined the motors and electronic controls of 24 of the Canal streetcars and six of the seven Riverfront cars. At the Carrollton station, 35 St. Charles cars escaped damage, as did No. 461 from the Riverfront line, which was in the station for a paint job. When it was completed, No. 461 was transformed into something that was supposed to make us think of the Mississippi River. It was painted yellow and blue. It wasn’t very popular, and a problem with its controls sent it back to the station, where it was painted red like the rest. The Riverfront line opened in 1988 and some called the cars the “ladies in red.” Since the St. Charles line is famous for its green streetcars, it was decided to paint the others red to distinguish them. When the streetcars returned to Canal Street in 2004, they, too, were red, as are all the cars that followed. Nobody asked me, but I might have suggested purple, green and gold. Hey Blake,

I have heard that at one time there was a world-famous boxing arena/ gym in the Marigny or Bywater. Where was it located, and who fought there? Lloyd Dear Lloyd, New Orleans was a major boxing center at one time, and in 1890, the city legalized boxing, stipulating the Marquis of Queensberry rules, which required

The famous arena you are asking about was the Olympic Club on Royal Street, between Montegut and Clouet streets. Founded in 1883 as an athletic association for men in the 3rd District, it got into prizefighting as a sideline, but soon it became a major boxing venue. Great matches were held at the Olympic Club, including one in 1891 in which Bob Fitzsimmons knocked out Jack “Nonpareil” Dempsey (not the world heavyweight champion of the same name) with 3,500 fans watching. In 1892, there was a three-day Carnival of Champions. Boxing fans paid a total of $101,557.80 to see Jack McAuliffe defeat Billy Meyers, George Dixon knock out Jack Skelly and “Gentleman Jim” Corbett knock out John Sullivan in the 21st round. The longest bout in history was April 6, 1893, when Andy Bowen, a New Orleanian, was matched against Jack Burke of Galveston, Texas for the lightweight championship of the South. The boxers punched for 110 rounds. After seven hours and 19 minutes, both men refused to continue and the match ended in a draw.

Digging in their heels problems at the jail, which he said created “a substantial risk of serious harm to which prison officials were deliberately indifferent.” The judge added that federal intervention “will ensure that OPP inmates are treated in a manner that does not offend contemporary notions of human decency.” Concluding that the jail fails to meet constitutional standards was the easy part. Now comes the heavy lifting: unraveling Gusman’s budget to see how much he really needs to implement the sweeping changes outlined in the consent decree. Africk had scheduled a hearing on that subject for last week, but he postponed it and asked Landrieu and Gusman to try to work out a compro-

Several attempts at mediation failed. Then came the OIG’s report, which appears to support Landrieu’s contention that the problems at OPP are more related to management than money. “The jail does not appear to be significantly underfunded given its total revenues,” the OIG concluded. The OIG and the mayor also have claimed that Gusman’s books are deliberately unfathomable. Landrieu maintains that an honest examination would bear out the OIG’s conclusion that Gusman already gets enough money to run the jail right. Gusman says the OIG doesn’t know what it’s talking about on the subject of jail finances. Both Landrieu and Gusman seem willing to roll the dice on a financial standards ruling by Africk. As attorneys, both men know it’s risky to litigate. Given the disparate possible outcomes — from no more money for the sheriff to millions drawn from city coffers over the next five to seven years — both men have much to lose, politically and financially, by digging in their heels.

Gambit > > June 18 > 2013

here’s an old saying that politics makes strange bedfellows, but it’s equally true that hard times can drive a wedge between natural allies. The latter appears to be the case with Mayor Mitch Landrieu and Orleans Parish Sheriff Marlin Gusman. Under normal circumstances, the mayor and the sheriff would get along just fine. These are not normal circumstances. Orleans Parish Prison (OPP) is a hellhole, the New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) has been rocked by scandals since Hurricane Katrina, and the feds want to put both institutions under expensive consent decrees to force change. Add to that the intransigence of both men, and you get the kind of feud that has made headlines for the past few months. Landrieu and Gusman have squared off in federal court and in the court of public opinion. There’s no clear winner yet, and the stakes are high. Gusman claims his jail meets constitutional standards, yet he welcomes the OPP consent decree as a way to get more money from City Hall. Landrieu initially welcomed the NOPD consent decree — until he got the tab for the OPP decree. Now he wants out of both, saying they will bankrupt the city. The feds don’t really care about cost; they just want the jail and NOPD fixed. The situation is compounded by the jail’s unusual — many say untenable — fiscal and managerial structure under state law and federal decree. The sheriff is responsible for running the jail, but City Hall is largely responsible for paying for it. The result, according to a recent audit report by the city’s Office of Inspector General (OIG), is “a problematic relationship between the OPSO and the city.” That’s putting it mildly. “Since neither the city nor the sheriff’s office could be held wholly accountable for both the costs and the conditions of the jail,” the report concludes, “neither public entity ensured the safety, security, and efficiency of the jail.” The OIG report is damning for Gusman’s office, almost as much as the sensational jailhouse videos that showed inmates partying, flashing a gun and allegedly doing drugs. Public support for the sheriff has to be at an all-time low, and Election Day is less than eight months away. But U.S. District Judge Lance Africk rejected Landrieu’s attempt to sidetrack the OPP consent decree. That was a victory for Gusman, though in approving the decree the judge excoriated the sheriff’s office. Africk cited “systemic”

he Up Stairs Lounge was usually crowded on Sunday nights. The weekly “beer bust” allowed patrons to pay $1 for a glass and each table had a pitcher that was refilled as long as the bust lasted. Owner Phil Esteve and bartender Buddy Rasmussen started the promotion to attract patrons to the second-floor gay bar at Iberville and Chartres streets. The space previously housed a bar with a gritty reputation, and when Esteve opened Up Stairs in October 1970, he created a cleaner, friendlier place. Long drapes hid pipes and other unattractive features. Red flocked wallpaper covered some of the walls, and the Cosmopolitan centerfold featuring Burt Reynolds, nude on a bearskin rug, hung behind the red Formica-topped bar. There also was a poster of Mark Spitz wearing a swimsuit and his Olympic gold medals. Esteve installed a baby grand piano, and many nights patrons sat around the piano and sang along. There was a group gathered at the piano at around 8 p.m. Sunday, June 24, when there was a long ring of the downstairs buzzer. Luther Boggs opened the door to an entrance stairwell engulfed in flames. The fire roared into the room and up to the ceiling, torching the drapes, wallpaper and everything in the room. Patrons were trapped. Some of them tried to squeeze through bars spaced 13 inches apart that blocked the floor-to-ceiling windows; a few were able to jump to the sidewalk. Rasmussen saved many lives as he found men in the smokefilled room and led them to a little-known exit in the back. The fire lasted less than 20 minutes, but it flared so furiously it claimed 29 lives that night. Three more later died from severe burns

and injuries. Some survivors were left disfigured, badly burned and missing fingers. The New Orleans Metropolitan Community Church lost its pastor, a deacon and a quarter of its congregation in the fire. The burned body of pastor Bill Larson was left for hours where he died trying to escape through the window bars (see Clancy DuBos’ memory of covering the story, “Front-row view of a tragedy,” p. 23). The fire dominated the headlines of The Times-Picayune and The States-Item for several days. Then the stories slipped into the inside pages of the paper. Troy Perry, the founder of the national Metropolitan Community Church (MCC) for gay and lesbian Christians flew from Los Angeles to New Orleans immediately after the fire. Perry was dismayed by the difficulties he had organizing a public memorial service. Though there were many unresolved issues — including an arson investigation and the unknown identities of many of the victims — the event disappeared from public discussion, and after a while, it seemed, from public memory as well. Perry’s autobiography is one of a handful of books that mentions the Up Stairs fire. Wayne Self read the book while in seminary at the Pacific School of Religion in Berkeley, Calif. He had never heard of the fire, even though he had grown up in Natchitoches, came out as gay early in his college years and had visited New Orleans many times. “Learning about the Up Stairs changed my trajectory entirely,” Self says. He left the seminary to write a musical about the fire. “Any time anyone says, ‘Oh, heavens, a musical about such a disaster,’ I am like, ‘Yeah, I know, right,’” Self says with a note of chagrin. “I was thinking the same thing. It was a big weight on my shoulders to say, ‘How am I going to navigate these waters? How am I going to make this entertaining, but not a talent show, and navigate the themes that are right there on the surface that must be dealt with?’

A front-row vIew of trAgedy A cub reporter’s first big story — the up stAirs Lounge fire — Left An indeLibLe, hAunting mArk. By ClanCy DuBos


A senior reporter grabbed my arm and told me to go to Charity Hospital’s emergency room. I was to write a “sidebar” story about the scene there. I don’t remember how I got to Charity, and I don’t remember exactly when I learned that the Up Stairs was “a bar frequented by homosexuals,” as the media callously described it in those days. I do recall standing in the ER, trying to remain as inconspicuous as possible, knowing that most if not all the burn victims there were gay men. Back then Charity was much more open than hospitals are today. No checkpoints. No one asking to see my credentials. I just walked into the ER and stood in a corner, scribbling observations into my notebook. The staff was far too busy trying to save lives to worry about a kid in the corner taking notes. I had a front-row view of tragedy — and heroism. Nurses and doctors valiantly attended gurney after gurney, putting gauze and salve on the bodies of burned men who moaned in haunting tones. Some of them wept. I remember watching a nurse gently — or as gently as she knew how — peeling back the burned skin from a man before wrapping him as he pleaded for something to deaden his pain. Some of those who managed to get out of the bar showed up, offering information about their friends and inquiring about the status of others. This scene replayed over and over before I realized I was the only reporter there. Then other media showed up, forcing the hospital staff to usher us out. I stayed in the ER for about an hour, long enough to get a mental picture that I tried to put into words for a story. Back in the newsroom, I went straight to my typewriter, ignoring the protocol of first telling Martin, the city editor, what I planned to write. Moments later, he glanced over my shoulder at my first few paragraphs and put his hand on my shoulder. “That’s what I want,” he said. “Keep at it.” Then as now, the rush to get a big story into print (or on the air) forces reporters to detach from the emotional immediacy of the event itself. In most cases it’s easy. When the story involves death, especially the death of a child or multiple deaths, not so much. We politely call that detachment “objectivity,” but it’s really more a defense mechanism to numb the senses, a much milder version of what soldiers no doubt do in response to battle. If we get caught up in the humanity of a tragedy as we cover it, we can’t do our job. I was just learning that skill set in June 1973, but I don’t think I’ve ever been able to detach from the Up Stairs fire story. Every time I smell the soot of a fire, for example, I think about the man I saw on the curb, crying in pain as his burned skin hung from his arms, or the man who was literally burned alive, pressed against the bars of the second-story window. Many years later I learned that the man in the window was the Rev. Bill Larson, the beloved pastor of the local Metropolitan Community Church, which ministered to the LGBT community. It was also years later that I realized how profoundly the Up Stairs fire had affected the local gay community. Sadly, it did not take long to see the indifference — or even the hostility — that many New Orleanians showed toward that community in the immediate aftermath of the fire. That indifference, that hostility, belied the city’s reputation for tolerance and hospitability. That June night, I mostly felt an incomprehensible mixture of numbness and shock. After we put the paper to bed, we went out for drinks; we needed something to take the edge off the adrenaline. I needed something that would help me sleep, or at least help me not think about the things I had just seen. I still felt that numbness and shock the next day, which was one of my days off. The fire that had killed 29 men the night before (and three more in the days that followed) was the talk of the town, and by then the national media had picked up the story. I went to my girlfriend’s house, hoping to find a way past the numbness. She nervously asked me what it was like, but I couldn’t find the words. I finally just hugged her and cried. page 25

t was a dreadfully slow news day, even for a Sunday evening in June. Those of us who worked the weekend “nightside” shift at The Times-Picayune stared blankly at our typewriters between crossword puzzles and novels. Frank Martin, the weekend night city editor, tried to break the monotony at one point by shouting, “Come on! Make something happen! It’s too damn slow tonight!” We chuckled, then went back to our tedium. Minutes later, Loys “Bugs” Bergeron, who monitored the police radios, came barreling into the newsroom shouting about a fire in the French Quarter. Martin dispatched all of us to the scene, the corner of Iberville and Chartres streets. Back then — June 24, 1973 — every fire was a story, but French Quarter fires were big stories. The Quarter was then, as it is now, a tinderbox. There was no telling how big this fire might get. I jumped into a photographer’s car and we raced down Poydras Street toward Camp, running several stoplights and not giving the then-under-construction Superdome so much as a glance. Breaking news is an adrenaline rush, and my heart pounded as much at the thought of a front-page story as from the photographer’s wild driving. We turned left on Camp and parked as close to Canal Street as we could, then ran toward the Quarter. The smell of soot already hung thick in the air as we crossed Canal. I had seen death already, even though I had started my summer internship at the paper only six weeks before, at the age of 18. The nightside crew regularly chronicled shootings, stabbings, murders and more. On my third day at the paper I covered the drowning death of a 15-year-old who wandered too far into Audubon Park’s flamingo pond. I’ll never forget watching the coroner’s office retrieve his body with a grappling hook. I remember thinking this kid was less than three years my junior. In the five weeks since that drowning story, I had become inured to the sight of death, or so I thought. Truth is, nothing could have prepared me for what I encountered at the corner of Iberville and Chartres. The first hint of tragedy was droplets of blood on the sidewalk along Chartres Street, almost a block from the fire. As I approached the corner, what I saw stopped me cold. The street was packed with firefighters, media and gawkers — and a man with much of his flesh burned off and hanging from his limbs. He sat on the curb facing the fire, weeping, begging for help. I had to turn away, at least momentarily. That’s when I saw the bar atop the Jimani Restaurant, which I later learned was the Up Stairs Lounge, fully engulfed in flames and smoke — and a sight that haunts me to this day: a man pressed against the bars of a window, his hair and flesh nearly burned off, one arm hanging out through metal bars that had prevented his escape to safety. This time I could not turn away. I stared at him, wondering who would put bars on a second-story window, and who was this man whose final, desperate moments would capture in one horrific picture the tragedy that was the Up Stairs fire?

40TH ANNIVERSARY UP STAIRS LOUNGE MEMORIAL The City of New Orleans has recognized Monday, June 24 as the 40th anniversary of the Up Stairs Lounge fire. Events include a lecture by artist Skylar Fein and author Clayton Delery at the Williams Research Center at 3 p.m., a jazz funeral at 4:15 p.m., a blessing at St. Anna’s Episcopal Church at 4:30 p.m. and a cocktail party at Cafe Lafitte in Exile at 5 p.m. Visit for details.

people expect when they walk in,” Self adds. “There are things left unresolved. There are things left unsaid. It’s going to be provocative to some people. If people are expecting a pageant of a memorial service essentially done on stage, that’s not what this is. It will be challenging. But finally, people will understand why I wrote it the way I did and what it’s calling for, what it’s hoping for.” Self, who lives outside Los Angeles, cast actors there for three workshop productions held in February in the San Francisco area. “I would send out the hardest piece in the show,” he says. “Half of my people who were interested disappeared. ‘Sanctuary’ has got weird harmonies, it’s atonal. The rest of the songs are these nice ballads. I figured I could find good actors; I wanted to find singers who could handle the material.” In the workshop version, some characters played multiple roles. All those actors will perform in the New Orleans premiere, but there are no doubled roles. The rest of the cast includes several Los Angeles actors and New Orleanian Jeffery Roberson (aka Varla Jean Merman). The live band features New Orleans musicians, and Self is working with local technical staff as well. Following the opening run, there will be a benefit performance on June 29 in Los Angeles. Where it goes from there is yet to be determined. Asked if he sees it in the same vein as other dramas created in response to crises — such as Larry Kramer’s The Normal Heart, about the early lack of response in New York to the HIV epidemic, or The Laramie Project, a play about the murder of Matthew Shepard, a young gay man — Self offers a different vision. “I was very compelled by Corpus Christi,” he says. “It’s a play about the life of Jesus, but it is set in Corpus Christi, Texas. This was in the 1990s and it was protested. People wouldn’t put it on, but it still has a life, and it would go from town to town, and church to church – very, very progressive churches. People wouldn’t put it on because it can be very irreverent. I was inspired by the activism and just the existence of a piece like that and its continuing life. My prayer for Upstairs — my hope — is that it will have a similar life. “Everyone is like, ‘Oh, Wayne, we’ll see you on Broadway,’” he says. “I am like, ‘No. Have you been to Broadway?’ But to have a life where it can go from community theater to community theater and have the story continually told — that would be a great way to live up to the mission that I have set out for myself.”

in the musical, which blends fact and fiction. Self uses several actual names; some characters are composites that incorporate information from multiple victims and survivors; others are fictional. The songs are mostly ballads sung by the ensemble, which suits the Up Stairs well, since it was popular as a place to sing and dance, where some patrons staged short farcical dramas and drag performances. “When I first heard about the fire … songs started to come,” Self says. “Songs started to come pretty quickly, at least initially. I started writing them down. But I didn’t think I was ready to take on the material. The time wasn’t ripe yet.” Self wrote a musical that was performed at the San Francisco chapter of the MCC. Wise Up! is a show-tunesy version of the Christmas story told by three drag queens, Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh. But Self knew he needed more experience to handle the Up Stairs lounge story. He entered a masters program in musical composition and theater. There, he wrote another musical before finishing Upstairs. Cadillac is a country- and Western-accented musical about coming out in a small town in the South. It’s a serious drama about a complicated relationship, but not as somber as what lies at the heart of his new project. Upstairs has strong religious imagery, and the work deals with complicated people and internalized homophobia. Redemption is an issue for one character conflicted about his identity, having grown up gay in the Bible Belt. “There is stuff that’s gay-specific in the play,” Self says. “But it’s about people who are told that redemption is not possible for them. Or that it would mean changing their sexuality — how they struggle for redemption. How does a person who is told, ‘Well, no, you can’t. You are broken. You are not OK in the sight of God’ — how does that person struggle for redemption if they receive those messages enough? But gay people aren’t the only people who are told that. “The narrative I put forth is not necessarily the narrative

he folks who own Kyoto Japanese Restaurant & Sushi Bar (4920 Prytania St., 504-891-3644; aren’t worried about the summer lag that plagues many New Orleans restaurants. “We’re rocking during the summer — we don’t let up,” owner Sara Molony says. Credit the public’s desire for lighter fare in the heat, as well as Kyoto’s longstanding clout in a town known for its food. When Molony opened Kyoto in 1995 on a desolate, seedy stretch of Prytania Street, it was one of a handful of sushi restaurants. Since then, she’s worked from an if-it-ain’t-broke-don’t-fixit point of view. Today, there are scores of newer sushi places, and the neighborhood is one of the most desirable in the city. But other than a new bamboo floor and retro Godzilla posters, Kyoto has remained largely unchanged, focusing on traditional Japanese fare and a few specialty rolls that blend other cuisines with Japanese flavors. Molony attributes the customer loyalty to the restaurant’s ongoing relationship with the neighborhood. “When we started out, boom, we were busy right away,” Molony says. “There was nothing here, and the neighborhood was ready for us. We opened back up six weeks after (Hurricane) Katrina, and it was like a frontier town saloon up in here. We were understaffed, and the neighborhood was so supportive that on Friday nights we had ‘guest bartenders’ — people coming back here to work behind the bar. We even had ‘guest dishwashers.’” This sense of loyalty extends to Kyoto’s

Molony Kyoto Japanese calls the staff Restaurant, her “kids” and which she is part mother opened in 1995. figure, part fun PHOTO By aunt and part CHEryL GErBEr strict boss. She’s there constantly, working behind the sushi bar, making all the sauces and supervising. “I can never take a step back,” Molony says. “This place is like a family and so you have to be here. If you take a step back, quality goes down and morale falls.” Molony is a stickler for maintaining the Japanese cuisine she fell in love with in 1985 (she cooked French and Italian food before that). But this hasn’t stopped her from putting twists on the menu. The ceviche roll is inspired by Central American ceviche and features avocado, sprouts, green onion, bell peppers, cucumber, rice, fresh whitefish, limecilantro sauce and cracked pepper. It’s bright and zesty with a kick of chili. There’s also the El Guapo roll, a combination of chili-seasoned tuna, avocado, red onion, habanero caviar and thin lime slices covered in a crunchy sour cream-green onion mix. Lighter than its Mexican inspiration, with a satisfying blend of textures, it’s “taco sushi,” Molony says. The fun rolls are few and far between; Molony is not one to embrace every culinary trend. “We’ve done what we’ve done for 18 years,” she says. “And we’re just going to keep on doing it.”

Pop-up seafood boil


Joe Segreto is like a senior senator in the world of Creole-Italian restaurants, and he often is found running the show at his elegant trattoria Eleven79 (1179 Annunciation St., 504-299-1179; www. So it was a little surprising to learn that on Sunday afternoons this summer, Segreto will instead be at an altogether different restaurant serving boiled seafood and beer. Segreto has teamed up with his friend David Baird for an ongoing series of al fresco events, essentially pop-up seafood boils in the courtyard at Le Citron Bistro (1539 Religious St., 504-566-9051;, the restaurant Baird runs a few blocks away from Eleven79. The events are scheduled from 12:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. each Sunday through the summer. “People used to go to the West End all the time for seafood like this — Swanson’s, Fitzgerald’s, Maggie and Smitty’s,” Segreto says, reeling off the names of long-gone seafood houses once clustered on the New Orleans lakefront. “That’s what inspired us here.” There’s a relaxed DIY feel to the seafood boils. Sometimes Segreto also offers one of his personal specialty dishes: Italian-style marinated shellfish, based on a recipe Segreto says he learned from the Mosca family, which runs Avondale’s famous Mosca’s restaurant.

This is an upgrade from a fried chicken and beer dinner chef/owner Michael Stoltzfus hosted at Coquette last year, and it will feature not just fried chicken but also the chef’s smoked fried chicken. “We have this huge smoker for our Hogs for the Cause team and we’ve been putting it to more use,” he says. Hogs for the Cause is an annual cook-off and benefit. The dinner series will continue on the last Tuesday of each month.

ew Orleans native James Moises is a physician and professor of emergency medicine at Tulane University School of Medicine. In 2002, he began making wine in Oregon’s Willamette Valley with his medical school classmate Mark Wahle, whose family has vineyards in that region. The first vintage was released in 2009. Today, Moises Vineyard & Wines (www. is a small boutique winery, producing about 400 cases a year. Most of it is pinot noir, and practically all of it is sold at shops and restaurants in the New Orleans area. Later this summer, the winery will release its latest vintages, including a new pinot gris. What set you on a path to becoming a winemaker? moises: It came out of my friendship with Mark. There’s an expression: “You have to drink a lot of beer to make a fine wine,” and that’s what we did. I enjoyed wine, but I didn’t know much about it, and it was fascinating when I started learning. For a city boy, getting out into wine country, seeing the rolling hills and the vineyards, it was inspiring. Is there a connection between your work in medicine and in wine? m: There have been a lot of studies looking at the health benefits of drinking wine. In a nutshell, it’s all the antioxidants in wine that have been shown to reduce the risk of heart disease, of stroke, of certain types of cancer. So as a doctor it’s nice to be able to tell people about wine, not just from information you’re passing on but with experience now in the chemistry that goes into wine. How does a small winemaker get a foothold in the marketplace? m: You have to open up a lot of bottles, hold a lot of tastings and get restaurant people to put it on their lists. It’s easier on the West Coast, where people seek out small, boutique wines, but we’re making some progress in New Orleans. People are starting to try different wines and not just turning to the big brands. That’s the beauty of the small wine shops we have here. The owners taste just about every wine they stock, so they know what we’re doing and they are great ambassadors for us. — IAN MCNULTY

Trends, notes, quirks and quotes from the world of food. “Doughnuts have the nutritional value of radiator fluid. While that may seem a negative thing, it’s quite the opposite. … Excessively safe and abusively preachedto, we need foods that flip the bird to our personal trainer. Bacon does the trick. And now, doughnuts. They make us feel dangerous and playfully irresponsible. … If that doughnut just happens to be made with rum, coconut and graphic designer pathos — well, all the more justified.” — Troy Johnson, food editor for San Diego Magazine, from a Huffington Post story on the doughnut’s new street cred.

what to know before you go

Off Broadway Street Tulane Summer Lyric Theatre opens with La Cage aux Folles By Brad Rhines


and agrees to remove his wig and makeup and play it straight, as he pretends to be Georges’ Uncle Al. For Howard, it’s Albin’s willingness to support Georges’ son that illustrates the musical’s most important themes. “It’s really not about homosexuality, or same-sex marriage, or any of that stuff,” Howard says. “It’s simply a love story. Everything is for somebody else. It’s for the boy, or it’s for the relationship or it’s for each other. It’s about loving each other, and it’s about accepting each other for what we are.” This season’s schedule draws heavily from Broadway classics with large, splashy song-and-dance numbers from the golden era of American musical theater. La Cage aux Folles features songs from composer and lyricist Jerry Herman, who also scored the hit musical Hello, Dolly! In July, Summer Lyric presents A Little Night Music, the 1973 show with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim. The season finishes in August with Kiss Me, Kate, the 1948 Cole Porter classic about backstage romance and rivalry as a theater company stages Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew. As New York’s biggest producers are scaling down their orchestras and relying more on technol-

ogy for special effects, Howard says Summer Bob Edes Jr. (center) stars Lyric is committed to in La Cage aux Folles. delivering a polished product that honors Broadway traditions. La Cage aux Folles junE “Our orchestra 8 p.m. Thu.-Sat.; remains 28 to 30 peo2 p.m. Sun. ple,” Howard says. “It’s THRU one of the few places Tulane University, junE you can still hear a full Dixon Hall pit orchestra with a musical, and it’s very (504) 865-5269 high quality because of the symphony players who are playing.” The traditional approach has maintained Summer Lyric’s appeal to local audiences, Howard says. “I think the city feels a sense of ownership,” he says. “They’ve been a very, very devoted audience for a long, long time. There are some people who have been members for 46 years. I think it’s an outstanding community outreach program, as well as preparing our students for professional careers.”



Gambit > > June 18 > 2013

ummer Lyric Theatre at Tulane University opens its 46th season with the Broadway hit La Cage aux Folles. Over the years, Summer Lyric has focused on providing local audiences with polished productions of classic and popular new musicals. Artistic director B. Michael Howard works with young talent and seasoned veterans to produce three shows in roughly six weeks, giving students a crash course in what it takes to put on a big, glitzy Broadwaystyle musical. “We do a different show every two-and-ahalf weeks,” Howard says. “The cast comes in knowing their roles, and then we have two solid weeks of rehearsal to put it together. It’s not much time, but with the amount of talent I have to work with, it’s totally possible.” Howard took over the Summer Lyric program from his teacher and mentor Frank Monachino, former chairman of Tulane’s music department. Monachino founded the theater in 1969, and Howard, a young actor at the time, was involved in Summer Lyric’s first show, a production of Annie Get Your Gun. Howard returned to New Orleans on and off during subsequent summers and landed a faculty position at Tulane in the early 1980s. Since then, he has been a regular contributor and became artistic director in 1997. “I think Mr. Monachino’s vision and mine were the same,” Howard says. “We can’t compete with Miss Saigon, with helicopters flying, but we’ve tried to keep our standards extremely professional. I think it’s important to the city, the students, and to our audience that we keep up this professional attitude that we have about quality.” La Cage aux Folles stars Bob Edes Jr. as Albin, a flamboyant drag queen who performs as Zaza. Albin is in a committed relationship with the mild-mannered Georges (Kristopher Lloyd Shaw). When Georges’ son gets engaged, the young man is reluctant to introduce his fiance and future in-laws to his unconventional family. Albin, hurt and defiant at first, eventually gives in

Generationals album-release party 10 p.m. Friday Maison, 508 Frenchmen Street (504) 371-5543

Through chance and happy circumstance, there is no other active New Orleans band whose growth I’ve had the privilege of watching as close-up as the Generationals. The introduction came almost a decade ago, via Grant Widmer and Ted Joyner’s cutting, interlocking guitar hooks on The Eames Era’s 2004 single “Could Be Anything.” It was a clear aha discovery, confirmed the next year when the track sat comfortably between Rilo Kiley and The Postal Service on a Grey’s Anatomy sampler. Five years later came another aha moment: After reading a Gambit story I had written about Chris Watson moving his Park the Van music label back to New Orleans, Widmer and Joyner bumped into us (accidentally?) at the Mid-City Yacht Club in January 2009, handing over an unmarked CD-R they had just mastered. Listening to it in the car brought on the same rush — these were the smartest modern pop songs I had heard in New Orleans. At the end of March, Widmer and Joyner signed on as Park the Van’s initial homegrown band, and by July, Con Law was its first local release; those candied love songs (“Faces in the Dark,” “Exterior Street Day,” “When They Fight, They Fight”) have since appeared in Reese’s commercials and Drew Barrymore movies. Heza, Generationals’ breakout debut for Polyvinyl Records, arrived in April, and surely someone will soon discover the band’s nostalgic charm and generous melodic gifts by hearing “Extra Free Year” or “Put a Light On” ringing out in an iPod ad or an episode of How I Met Your Mother. When I hear them, it’s this story that plays as well, and how fortunate I am to have met them first. Gringo Star and Coyotes open. Tickets $12. — NOAh BONAPARTE PAIS

Before Midnight

Just about everyone over a certain age has been there: that moment when you realize your long-term relationship has gradually evolved into something that’s less about romance and more about the practical side of everyday life. Before Midnight, the third in a series of conversation-based films about Jesse (ethan Hawke) and Celine (Julie Delpy), offers what may be the most realistic depiction of a mature love relationship ever Before Midnight (r) committed to film. simmering resentments, Directed by richard circular arguments and the nagging sense that linklater a single push in the wrong direction might lead to an eventual breakup — these are the difficult starring ethan Hawke realities found in director richard linklater’s and Julie Delpy film. it’s not always easy to watch, but it has an wide release air of discovered truth that elevates it to something that looks a lot like art. in the series’ first film, Before Sunrise (1995), twentysomethings Jesse and Celine meet on a train and spend a single romantic evening walking and talking in Vienna before their lives require them to part ways. in their thirties, the starcrossed lovers finally meet again and enjoy a day together wandering around paris in Before Sunset (2004) after Jesse writes a best-selling book about that fateful first night and Celine turns up at a reading. in Before Midnight, the two are fortyish and bring their young daughters to greece. the intensely intimate conversation of the first two films has given way to comfortable familiarity. in the first of the film’s three long conversations — presented in slightly condensed real time and mostly without edits — Jesse plants a seed of discontent by hinting that he wants the family to leave paris and move to the U.s. so they can be near his adolescent son from his first marriage. later on, friends watch the kids and give the couple the gift of another romantic evening alone together. but time and circumstance have taken a toll on Jesse and Celine. over the course of three movies, the principals have developed a unique way of working that gives the films a special pedigree. the screenplays for both Before Sunset and Before Midnight are credited to linklater, Hawke and Delpy, who get together every seven or eight years to imagine what happens to Jesse and Celine at a new stage in their lives. it’s like a band reuniting after lots of solo projects to make another record and tour — except that the new stuff is better than the old. a single false note here might cause an entire 30-minute scene to collapse. thanks to natural performances by both Hawke and Delpy, that danger never seems real. the trio isn’t saying whether it will continue to chronicle the lives of these characters in the future. but the smart money says we’ll check in again with Jesse and Celine in 2022. — Ken Korman

FILM LISTINGS reVIeW Loosely based on Henry James’ short novel of the same name, What Maisie Knew is the latest in a recent stream of deeply affecting films told from a child’s point of view. The title can be taken literally, as the film shows exactly what a precocious 6-year-old girl sees when her two absent and self-obsessed parents (Julianne Moore and Steve Coogan) fight over her custody out of sheer hatred for one another. Some scenes are actually shot from Maisie’s height, with adults cut off at mid-torso. The technique is used sparWhat Maisie Knew (R) ingly and helps draw us into THRu 1:30 p.m. and 7 p.m. Tue.-Thu. june Maisie’s uncertain world. Filmmaking partners Scott Chalmette Movies, 8700 W.

Paintings, Drawings and Photographs by George Dureau



Paintings, Drawings and Photographs: Mixed media by George Dureau Arthur Roger Gallery 432 Julia St. (504) 522-1999

Of all the artists this city has produced, there are probably none more representative of its iconic mix of flamboyant elegance and earthy eccentricity than George Dureau. Now 82, the painter and photographer was a French Quarter fixture for decades until his recent move to an assisted living facility. Despite his dexterously deft brushwork, most of his international reputation is based on a photographic oeuvre in which all aspects of formal technique are harnessed to his genius for conveying a striking humanistic presence. In this, he profoundly influenced one of his early studio assistants, a young man named Robert Mapplethorpe, who went on to become a New York art star. But Mapplethorpe could not match his mentor’s depth, as even that city’s art critics have noted in recent years. The work seen here is a classic Dureau sampler, and while it is easy to understand the popularity of his flamboyant paintings and drawings, it is his photographs that, while not for the faint of heart, will ensure his place in art history. Perhaps ironically, Dureau was an established New Orleans painter when he began photographing his mostly male and often African-American models, a heterogeneous assortment of street people and outsiders that included muscle boys, dwarfs, amputees and occasionally bohemian women. In his paintings, they appeared as otherworldly creatures ranging from angels to centaurs in scenes rendered like bawdy, baroque interpretations of classical mythology in which Dureau himself often turns up as a satyr. But in his photographs, for instance, his portrait of B.J. Robinson (pictured), they appear as they really are yet as most of us would never see them, relaxed yet vulnerable, comfortable in the presence of someone who saw and appreciated their unique beauty and authenticity. It was Dureau’s singular genius to be able to meld Charles Baudelaire’s poetic otherworldliness with Walt Whitman’s utopian American egalitarianism in singularly striking images that reflect something of the soul of his city. — D.

Hell’s Belles, currently on the boards at the Mid-City Theatre, is an antebellum Southern Gothic tale, but you’re more likely to come across a harlot than a Scarlett at this Tara. The French Finishing School for Little Confederate Women, where Hell’s Belles takes place, was dreamed up and populated by Running with Scissors. Maj. Ashley Wood (Jack Long), a wounded Union soldier, is discovered by one of the belles while she is gathering mushrooms. The belle and Maj. Wood do some smooching, and she helps him to the finishing school, where he can be treated. Wounded or not, Maj. Wood is now the fox in the hen house. Much of the tale concerns the students’ and teachers’ attempts “to get their hands on” Maj. Wood, and that sort of double entendre accounts for much of the show’s humor. The school is an old plantation house fitted with upper-crust finery, including a piano and a chaise lounge. Flossie French (Brian Peterson) is the headmistress and owner. Her wheelchairbound sister Fannie (Yvette Hargis) disputes her ownership, and when Flossie gets irritated with Fannie, the headmistress sends her rolling into the wings with a swift shove. The student body (Lisa Picone, Kyle Daigrepont and Dorian Rush) grudgingly obey the tyrannical Flossie but continue flirting with Maj. Wood. At one point, the headmistress briefly interrupts heavy petting with the Yankee and becomes enraged when one of her students takes her place. She ferociously beats Maj. Wood with her cane and then, to save his life, amputates his leg with an axe. The humor is outrageous and funny. Richard Read and the cast wrote the script. Lynn Walker provided the costumes. Brian Peterson is credited with fashioning the “wiglets.” Su Gonczy did a good job with the sound and lighting. — DALT WONK

Dear Brenda, The good news, Brenda, is that if you are getting “a bunch” of interviews, that is a good indication that your résumé is doing its job. While you shouldn’t expect every interview to result in a job offer, surely you should see an offer at some point, as long as your interview skills are up to snuff. And that’s where body language can come in. According to, “While it’s no secret that job interviews can be Grant Cooper nerve-racking, a lot of job candidates spend a significant amount of time worrying about what they will say during their interview, only to blow it all with their body language. You need to effectively communicate your professionalism both verbally and nonverbally.” According to Tony Lee of, “Studies indicate that body language accounts for a full 55% of any response, while what you actually say accounts for just 7%. The remaining 38% is taken up by the intonation, pauses and sighs you give off when answering a question.” In past articles, I’ve emphasized that good preparation and planning for your interview can make a world of difference. For example, you can do a bit of research on the company, analyze the job description for details, and memorize several powerful examples where you made a positive impact in your past jobs. All of this preparation will go a long way toward calming your nerves and acing the interview. Brenda, here are some body language tips to use in your upcoming interviews: • Check out this inspirational video of Amy Cuddy, faculty member at Harvard Business School, talking about body language and power poses • Make a great entrance. Appear confident and calm at all times, even in the waiting area. Even the receptionist could have a say in who is hired. Avoid or limit colognes and perfumes. • While waiting, don’t hunch your shoulders or tuck your chin into your chest, which will make you seem closed off. Sit with your back straight and your chest open, signs that you’re confident and assertive. • Practice handshaking practice with a friend to find the right firm vs. limp balance. Shake righthanded and arrange belongings on your left side. • In the walk to the interview room, always follow the person to show your understanding of protocol, even if it is an assistant. • At the interview desk, it’s OK to place a slim portfolio on the table, but put your other belongings on the floor beside you, not on your lap. • Sit up straight, and lean slightly forward or in your chair, displaying your neck, chest and stomach area to signal that you’re open. Keep both feet on the floor and don’t cross your legs. • Always keep your hands above the desk and below the shoulders, preferably even lower, near your mid-section to communicate you’re centered, controlled, and calm. • Sitting too far away makes you look afraid, but too close is an intrusion. You can sit about 20 inches away from the table so that your gestures are visible. • Make your goodbye handshake the same as your initial one and maintain your good posture as you exit the office and onto the street.

Nine (9) and Ten (10) on a plan of subdivision made by C.A. Robert, Civil Engineer and Surveyor dated March 15, 1926 a blue print of which is annexed to an Act before Ernest J.

According to this survey said lots 9 and 10 adjoin each other, and measure each twenty feet (20’) front on Weiblen Pl. by one hundred twenty feet (120’) in depth between equal and parallel lines. Lot 10 is nearer to and commences at a distance of forty feet (40’) from the corner of Weiblen Place and Memphis Street. The above description and measurements are in accordance with certificate and sketch of survey made by C.A. Robert on April 23, 1940 a blue print copy of which is annexed to vendor’s act of acquisition. Being the same property acquired by the American General Savings and Loan Association from Louis Lenfant by act of sale before Paul J. Ganucheau and registered in C.O.B. 578 folio 575.

Fenasci, to purchase decedent’s interest in the above described real estate, for the amount of $175,000.00 cash, less the usual expenses to be paid by vendor. 3. The sale of this real estate is necessary to pay the debts and charges of the succession. 4. Petitioner recommends that the real estate described above be sold and believes that a private sale of the property at the price offered will be in the best interest of the succession and its creditors. Petitioner respectfully recommends to this Honorable Court that the decedent’s interest in the aforementioned real estate be sold at private sale to Anthony Staines for $175,000.00. 5. Under the provisions of the Louisiana Code of Civil Procedure Ann. Art 3281, petitioner herein applies to sell the real estate above described, and on compliance with the law made and provided in such cases, is entitled to an order of this court authorizing this sale.
