seven things to do in seven days Antibalas Tue. Oct. 9 | It’s fitting that Antibalas went eponymous on album four. Graced by airy virtuosity, heavy funk and the return of producer Gabriel Roth, August release Antibalas (Daptone) is the definitive statement from the bulletproof Afrobeat orchestra. The Free Agents Brass Band opens at Tipitina’s. PAGE 121. Dan Deacon Tue. Oct. 9 | After 2009’s inner-space symphony Bromst, Baltimore electro-auteur Dan Deacon set out to write the Great American Album. His major-keyed America (Domino) is vast and chaotic, at once cohesive and at war with itself, from sea to shining middle C. Height With Friends, Chester Endersby Gwazda and Alan Resnick open at the Maison. PAGE 121.

Crescent City Blues & BBQ Festival Fri.-Sun. Oct. 12-14 | Keb’ Mo’, Chris Thomas King, Ironing Board Sam, Miss Lavelle White and many other blues, soul and R&B performers headline the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation’s free festival. There also will be barbecue and other food from local restaurants, a craft market and more. PAGE 136.

New Orleans Film Festival | With her distinctive black bangs, Bettie

Page enjoyed a career as a pin-up girl, early fetish model and Playboy Playmate before she turned to evangelical Christianity and disappeared from public view. She narrates her life story in Mark Mori’s Bettie Page Reveals All, one of the many titillating entries in the New Orleans Film Festival. The festival also offers a wide array of major feature films, documentaries, Louisiana movies, special screenings and winners from juried competitions for features, documentaries and short, animated and experimental films. At venues around New Orleans. PAGE 115.

Louisiana Seafood Festival Fri.-Sun. Oct. 12-14 | George Porter Jr. and Runnin’ Pardners, Tommy Malone, Kristin Diable, Eric Lindell, Alexis & the Samurai and many others perform on the festival’s two stages. There also will be plenty of seafood, cooking demonstrations, a crafts area, a kids’ pavilion and more. At Woldenberg Park. PAGE 134. Sleigh Bells Mon. Oct. 15 | Though it was one of the most anticipated albums of early 2012, Reign of Terror seems like a misnomer for the shimmery noise pop Brooklyn duo Derek Miller and Alexis Krauss offer on “End of the Line.” Rougher guitar licks and shouty lyrics help “Demons” make Krauss sound more like one of Hell’s belles, but only slightly. Sumsun opens at House of Blues. PAGE 121.

Placido Domingo Gala Fri. Oct. 12 | Renowned Spanish tenor Placido Domingo headlines a gala fundraiser for the New Orleans Opera Association.

Some were furious, others vented or just listened, but on Sept. 26, the Speakeasy group decided on two plans of action: call on City Hall to create a moratorium on the enforcement of entertainment permits as a “time to comply” and organize, even if it means meeting weekly and drawing up a list of points that need to be addressed by the mayor’s office. “We need to define as a group what this is and what we want,” attorney Tim Kappel said. “The city needs to provide a one-stop shop for licensing. ... Until then, what’s the rush?” That night, both Siberia and Mimi’s in the Marigny — two highprofile venues that had suspended music performances for lack of permits — announced the city agreed to let the bars host live music on a temporary basis as they navigate city agencies to acquire the necessary permits. The music calendars resumed at both venues, including DJ Soul Sister’s popular Saturday dance party Hustle! at Mimi’s. The amnesty extended to all clubs in the process of seeking proper permits. In a press release, Mayor Mitch Landrieu said, “I’ve instructed the City’s enforcement agencies to enforce the law fairly and to take a customer-friendly approach. This means that we offer assistance in securing the appropriate permits to businesses that have been offering live music for years. In most cases, the City does not need to immediately issue summonses or administrative subpoenas, if a business owner agrees to work actively to secure the required permits.” Some balked at what they saw as the city capitulating to club owners. In a widely circulated email, Marigny resident Marshall Gries wrote how “disgusted Mimi’s neighbors are that the City caved so quickly. … For those of us who live close enough to hear the music (which includes me and I’m nearly a block away) Mimi’s live music and DJ has disrespected us for years. … Sorry, there’s a reason live music isn’t allowed in the middle of a residential district. DJ Soul Sister needs to take it to Bourbon, Frenchmen or St. Claude. You can’t have a livable neighborhood if anyone can put anything anywhere.” Melissa Weber, aka DJ Soul Sister, replied in another widely circulated email that the upstairs area that houses live music

uses soundproofing boards and performs regular sound meter readings during shows, and that the bar’s mission has always been to respect its neighborhood. weber echoed her email comments at last week’s meeting, adding, “since when, in my entire time living here, am i or any artists restricted to create in an area where you tell me. This is New Orleans. it all comes from the neighborhood from the ground up.” “This is an ongoing fight and discussion,” attorney Mary Howell said. “One of the responses to that is to be good neighbors, for people to be responsible, for people to self-regulate, and to take care of their own affairs so there isn’t the need or the opportunity for the police to come in and start busting this stuff up. we are going to talk about rights, but you also need to talk about responsibility. it’s a two-way street.” Last week’s meeting produced a master list of issues to address: zoning, accessibility and affordability of permits, permits for street musicians, noise ordinances, flyering or “bandit sign” laws and getting organized.

what’s been called a “war on music” continues a narrative that many feel is an attack on culture, or race, and one that is almost as old as the city itself. in 2010, NOPD began enforcing an 8 p.m. curfew on street musicians after shutting down the To Be Continued Brass Band at its regular spot on Bourbon and Canal streets. Frenchmen street’s door-to-door clubs were targeted for violating noise ordinances. in 2011, Bywater music and wine bar hangout Bacchanal was busted for hosting live music without proper permits (as well as serving food). And in 2012, siberia and The Circle Bar, among others, were visited by employees of the city’s Department of Revenue and asked to produce their live entertainment permits. Those popular venues, with dense concert calendars booked months in advance, canceled shows while going through the permit process. Circle Bar was back the following week. siberia still has not received its permit. Other bars, like Cork & Bottle, Bullet’s and Buffa’s, as well as alternative arts venue Marigny Opera House, faced similar issues. NOPD visited Mimi’s in the Marigny at 1:30 a.m. wednesday, sept. 19 and asked for permits — despite the fact that live music

The council worked with the city and vendors — and even decreased its original fee of $50 — to reach something mutually agreeable. “It just gives individuals a vehicle to legally sell products and things you’d normally buy at a parade — popcorn, peanuts, balloons,” said interim District B Councilwoman Diana Bajoie. “This is the type of permit that respects and honors the tradition, while at the same time provides a mechanism to have the legal right to do it with a minimal cost,” Hutcheson added. At the lunchtime meeting at Speakeasy last week, Howell and others urged attendees not to separate the issues affecting clubs and second lines. “There’s a direct line of continuity between what’s happening in the streets and what happens in the clubs,” Howell said. “They are not separate fights. I’d hope the club owners are out there when they’re coming after the Indians, and the street musicians when they’re coming after the clubs.”

ended at midnight with only the jukebox downstairs playing any music. Owner Mimi Dykes, who has paid taxes on a live entertainment permit though she doesn’t have one, decided to cancel the bar’s music programming until she could reach an agreement with City Hall. At the meetings, attendees blamed the recent enforcement on increasing pressure on New Orleans City Council from neighborhood and business organizations; ongoing conflict between city agencies and the less-wealthy arts community; and the absence of support from the New Orleans Business Alliance, GNO Inc. and the Convention and Visitors Bureau, which promotes live music to visitors on its website (which also uses Ruffins’ photo). Those who attended the meeting also blamed the byzantine, “schizophrenic” laws and zoning ordinances. (See “Music Permits 101,” News & Views, Sept. 11.) Current ordinances dictate live entertainment as “theatrical productions, athletic contests, exhibitions, pageants, concerts, recitals, circuses, karaoke, bands, combos and other live music performances, audience-participation contests, floor shows, literature readings, dancing, fashion shows, comedy or magic acts, mime and the playing of recorded music (discs, records, tapes, etc.) by an employee, guest or other individual, one of whose functions is the playing of recorded music and who is in verbal communication with the clientele of the establishment.” The upcoming draft of the Comprehensive Zoning Ordinance (CZO) defines it similarly: “Live entertainment” also is defined in the city’s Permits and Licenses for Cultural Businesses: A Basic Guide, which provides businesses a detailed walk-through on applying for the permits and licenses they’ll need. “What we tried to do was organize it in a way that addresses the most significant part first, which is zoning,” Hutcheson said. But what happens if, while the city works with clubs to get their permits in order, the city ultimately denies them? Despite permitting agencies and the mayor’s office granting an indefinite grace period to clubs, the clubs still must pass muster within their respective zoning or convince the City Planning Commission to grant it a variance to those zoning rules. Matt Hill, who owns Bootleggers Bar & Grille on Decatur Street, next to the House of Blues, said NOPD officers have asked him to shut down live music, despite the venue (formerly the music club Tarantula Arms), its proximity to other live music venues, and what he thought was proper zoning. “We’ve finally built our niche,” he told Gambit. “It’s all gone downhill.” Hill, who does not have a permit, said he’ll continue to book live music while discussing options with the city. “What happens when those people who (apply) to get a permit are not going to be able to get a permit?” Howell asked Hutcheson. “What is happening with the changes in the (CZO)?” Hutcheson said he’s working to get the City Planning Commission involved in the discussion, which already has been joined by the Department of Revenue and the Office of Safety and Permits.

scuttlebutt Quote of the week

“Your governor, Bobby Jindal, has traveled from town to town across iowa crusading against gay marriage. Many suspect he’s already campaigning for the 2016 iowa Presidential Caucuses. we iowans were recently subjected to an endless parade of Republican candidates during the 2012 Presidential Caucuses. we really don’t need Gov. Jindal’s wisdom and advice for the next four years. Please call back your governor and find something for him to do.” — Dave Gregory of Marion, Iowa, in a letter to the editor published last week in The Advocate.

Out of joint

Richmond meets Red stick

MarY lanDrIeU lenDS a HanD U.s. sen. Mary landrieu shares a political party and a hometown with U.s. Rep. Cedric richmond, D-New Orleans, but it was on Baton Rouge turf that she rolled out her support for Richmond last week. The capital city is new to Richmond’s 2nd Congressional District, which he’s expected to retain. “He had not had Baton Rouge in his district, so she just wanted to introduce him to people in Baton Rouge,” said Jane Campbell, Landrieu’s chief of staff, adding the senator has “no reason to engage” in any of Louisiana’s other congressional races. Landrieu has also made endorsements and helped with fundraising in hot U.s. senate races around the country, backing Heidi Heitkamp in North Dakota, Martin Heinrich in New Mexico and Shelley Berkley in Nevada. “she has done the same for other Democrats, too, in senate races,” Campbell said.

Oil & medicine

BP CleanUP StUDY SeeKInG MOre PartICIPantS since it began its data collection in March 2011, the Gulf Long-Term FollowUp (GuLF) study — a $25 million, 10-year project under the National institute of environmental Health sciences (NieHs), the National institutes of Health and the U.s. Department of Health and Human services — has gathered more than 29,000 participants to study the health implications of handling (and exposure to) oil, dispersants and other chemicals in the cleanup operations following the BP oil disaster. The study closes its enrollment period Dec. 31. Cleanup and rig workers, or people who received cleanup training or were assigned to the Gulf following the disaster, are encouraged to participate to help “get a full picture of what happened during the oil spill and understand how it affected people’s health,” said Dr. Dale Sandler, who heads the study. it aims to recruit 55,000 participants. “if we can get to 35,000 or 40,000, we’d be a tremendous success,” sandler says. The study already is the largest of its kind. As sandler told Gambit last year, the project includes “looking at respiratory effects and nonspecific complaints — dizziness and headaches,” but it’s also interested in long-term issues such as chronic diseases and cancer. Last week, sandler said she hopes the findings “will provide information on how oil spills impact physical and mental health,” including depression, stress and anxiety. The study begins with a telephone interview, followed by a home visit from a trained medical examiner who takes biological samples and tests lung function. Participants are given a $50 gift card. if necessary, participants are referred to a free or low-cost physician. so far, sandler says, 450 people were referred to a doctor for elevated blood pressure or for poor lung function. some participants have had consultations with practitioners who specialize in dealing with chemical exposure, she said. For more information, see the study’s website (www.gulfstudy.nih.gov) or call 1-855-644-4853. — ALeX wOODwARD

the right notes

Gambit > bestofneworleans.com > october 9 > 2012

n Nov. 2, Mayor Mitch Landrieu is scheduled to receive the Lifetime Cultural Leadership Award from the Louisiana Cultural Economy Foundation at the group’s annual LA Fete Louisiane gala. When he was lieutenant governor, Landrieu was head of the state Department of Culture, Recreation & Tourism, and he’s been quick to champion New Orleans’ “cultural economy” as one of the city’s many positive attributes. But nowadays he’s headed for some rocky times with the city’s music community — and not for the first time during his tenure as mayor. City Hall recently began cracking down on bars and music clubs that lack proper permits — not enacting new laws, but enforcing those already on the books. Some familiar names were caught in the net. Music fans howled, but the Circle Bar and Siberia were two clubs that admitted they didn’t have all their permits. Things really came to a head when cops dropped in at Mimi’s in the Marigny, which has offered live music and a longstanding Saturday night funk jam by WWOZ-FM personality DJ Soul Sister. Contrary to rumor, NOPD didn’t shut down Mimi’s. The club’s owner chose to stop featuring entertainment while the legalities were sorted out. (Mimi’s music is currently back on while the

14

matter is being resolved.) To local musicians, this all had echoes of the summer of 2010 — early in Landrieu’s term — when the city began clamping down on street musicians in the French Quarter and Faubourg Marigny, citing existing city laws about street performing past the hour of 8 p.m. At the time, the city seemed to ignore much louder canned music coming from nearby clubs. Some accused the Landrieu administration of declaring a “war on live music,” and that charge has been raised again by musicians who say they want to comply with the law but think the city is offering too much stick and not enough carrot. The city insists it has enacted no new laws regarding live music but rather is merely applying the rules fairly and evenly — and offering an amnesty program for clubs that are in the process of applying for music licenses. The issue is complicated by zoning laws, which haven’t always kept up with the redevelopment of New Orleans’ historic neighborhoods. Scott Hutcheson, Landrieu’s adviser on the cultural economy, admitted to Gambit, “Because it is a ... bureaucratic process involving a couple of different departments, the path is not always as clear for some constituents as it is others.”

That’s not good enough for some, including trumpeter Kermit Ruffins, who has been holding weekly meetings in his Basin Street nightclub to organize the city’s musicians, club owners and music lovers. Some contend that New Orleans is proud to promote — and make money from — its wonderful music scene, but that there’s been little official support for live music in the past. Ruffins also is considering a “musical march” on City

The city and the tourism industry have benefited greatly from New Orleans’ music community. Hall later this month, which could generate national press, none of it good for Landrieu on the eve of his award. At a minimum, the city should be more proactive in working with local musicians and club owners, as happened last week when another delicate cultural situation — the licensure of vendors at second lines — came be-

fore the City Council. In that case, Hutcheson met with vendors and helped work out a policy that the city says has a minimum of red tape: a $25 annual fee and a brief application will be all that’s necessary in most cases. Licensure and permitting of music clubs is a much more complicated issue, of course. Throw in zoning and the legitimate concerns of neighbors, and it becomes even more complicated. But the musicians are correct when they say the city and tourism industry have benefited greatly from New Orleans’ music community, and musicians shouldn’t have to march on City Hall to be heard. It’s time to take a look at entities such as Nashville’s Music City Music Council, a partnership between the mayor’s office, the local chamber of commerce and that city’s convention and visitors bureau. Formed in 2009, the Music Council puts money and muscle not only into promoting the Nashville sound to tourists, but also into creating a streamlined approach to the business of music itself. If New Orleans could, in an organized fashion, bring public- and private-sector help to the musicians and club owners who are already here, making it easier and more profitable for them to do their jobs, that would sound the right notes for the city’s cultural economy.

Even Jindal Feels the cuts he late u.s. sen. Russell Long, who once chaired the senate Finance Committee, used to sum up his approach to taxation this way: “Don’t tax you. Don’t tax me. Tax that fellow behind the tree.” Louisiana governors have used a similar approach to budget cuts. Just about everybody supports budget cuts — as long as the cuts “hit home” somewhere else. But what happens when cuts affect every corner of the state? That’s what has happened in recent years as Gov. Bobby Jindal trimmed billions from the overall state budget, some of it by himself and much of it because post-Katrina federal aid ran dry. Nowadays, the cuts are hitting home everywhere, even in areas that supported Jindal overwhelmingly. Give the governor credit for not playing favorites. Then again, I doubt he had much choice, given his decision to make deep cuts. According to the latest statewide survey by southern Media and opinion Research (sMoR), a Baton Rouge-based polling firm, the financial cuts have affected just about everyone — including Jindal, who makes no apology for cutting health care and higher education.

The governor’s popularity has slipped to its lowest point since he took office in 2008, according to the sMoR poll. His job approval rating is now just 51 percent positive, with 45.1 percent rating his performance negatively. A positive rating combines responses of “excellent” and “good,” while negative ratings comprise responses of “poor” and “not so good.” Jindal’s positive numbers used to be stratospheric. In some ways, Jindal’s popularity dip was inevitable. You can’t govern in tough times without having to make tough decisions. over time, those tough decisions add up. Jindal says he doesn’t pay attention to polls. Better for him that he doesn’t, because massive health care cuts came just as the poll numbers were released, and even more are on the way. Among the poll’s findings: • 68 percent of those surveyed said the budget has been cut enough. • 43 percent said the cuts have had a negative impact on their family — 36 percent among Republicans. • 89 percent are concerned about cuts to the Lsu-run public hospital system. • 79 percent said the hospital system will

Jindal’s popularity has slipped to its lowest point since he took office in 2008. not be able to provide quality health care, and 80 percent said Louisiana residents would lose access to health care because of the cuts. The survey was taken sept. 11-20. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percent. Interestingly, it was paid for by Baton Rouge businessman Lane Grigsby, a staunch Jindal supporter and a huge supporter of the governor’s education reforms. overall, those education reforms got high marks from voters — except for the governor’s controversial voucher program.

sixty-nine percent of those surveyed support increasing standards for teacher tenure; 73 percent support more teacher accountability; and 56 percent support increased control for principals. But 54 percent oppose school vouchers. Meanwhile, state lawmakers have been chafing over Jindal’s health care cuts, but so far only a few seem willing to do anything about it. state Rep. Jerome “Dee” Richard, I-Thibodaux, wants his colleagues to call themselves into a special session to confront the governor and the cuts. He released his “call” last week. The sMoR poll did not address that issue directly, but more than two-thirds of those interviewed (69 percent) said lawmakers should be more independent of the governor. Interestingly, it takes only one-third of the Legislature to trigger a vote for a special session, but it takes two-thirds to override a governor’s veto. Louisiana’s governors are vested with enormous power, which helps them maintain sway over most legislators. Maybe that’s why Jindal isn’t so worried about his poll numbers.

locations, including the main store on St. Claude Avenue, were only blocks away from North Derbigny and St. Roch, so it’s possible you smelled bread from one of those bakeries. Joseph H. Binder Jr. died in 1969. By 1975, the main store on St. Claude Avenue and all the other smaller stores had closed, except the one on Frenchmen Street. Hey Blake,

Many of us live in historic houses. Where can we research the history of our residences? Mike Miller Dear Mike, There are two good sources, and both of them are online.

Dear Russell, You present Ol’ Blake with a problem, as you don’t say when you were 9 years old. If you were a boy in the 1930s, there were 110 bakeries in New Orleans, so just about anywhere you lived, the aroma of baking bread might come wafting through your window in the morning. Even so, there was not a bakery located at the intersection of North Derbigny and St. Roch streets. You might have awakened to the smell of coffee, because the Good Will Coffee Mills was located there in the 1930s (into the mid ’60s). The bakeries operated by the Binder family occupied several locations. The current Binder bakery, operated by Alois J. Binder Jr., is at 940 Frenchmen St. It has been there since the early 1970s. The Binder family began its business in 1914, with Joseph H. Binder and his wife setting up shop at 2609 St. Claude Ave. and delivering their goods with horses and buggies. Fifty years later, in 1964, the company was at the same address but was operated by the second generation of Binders: Joseph H. Jr., Alois J., George W. and Mrs. William Clark Jr. At that time, the company had three other locations: 901 Independence St., 2018 Desire St. and 1900 Franklin Ave. Several of the Binder

The Alois J. Binder bakery on Frenchmen Street is what remains of a string of bakeries the Binder family operated in New Orleans.

its first possession, an 11-play, 80-yard touchdown drive. On the first play of the next possession, however, Brees was picked off, and the Panthers returned the interception for a touchdown. The Saints defense gave up 463 yards (219 on the ground) that game, Carolina led 21-13 at the half and went on to win 35-27. Still we believed. The third matchup, against the Kansas City Chiefs, was a punch in the gut to Saints fans. The Black & Gold had an 18-point lead with more than five minutes to play in the third quarter. The Saints offense then went into hibernation and the defense, which had held Kansas City to field goals up to that point, suddenly couldn’t even tackle air. The Chiefs scored 21 unanswered points and won 27-24 in overtime. After the game, Saints players looked shell-shocked. Some said the team desperately needed a win over Kansas City to bolster its confidence before heading to Lambeau Field to face the Super Bowl champions, the Green Bay Packers. The Saints played their best game of the season and even benefited from some “gift” calls from the officials. New Orleans had a six-point lead in the fourth quarter, but failed to score in the red zone. Then kicker Garrett Harley missed a 48-yard field goal that would have put the Saints in the lead. The team left the field with a 0-4 record. The Saints still hope the 2012 season can be saved. Perhaps the hope lies with the return of Vitt (his suspension ends after game six), a coach whose energy this team definitely could use. Hopefully the bye week will be just what the doctor ordered.

he New Orleans Saints in the 2013 Super Bowl in the Superdome. Supreme twofer. Who didn’t believe it could happen? Just a few months ago, the New Orleans Saints were talked about as a championship-caliber team. A new defense was just the weapon Saints quarterback Drew Brees needed for a second Super Bowl victory. The team seemed to build its talent pool with promising draft picks and acquisitions in free agency. Assistant head coach Joe Vitt appeared to be perfect for the job of interim head coach while head coach Sean Payton served a one-year suspension for the bounty scandal. It all seemed like it would work, didn’t it? Then the season started. After having played a quarter of their games, the Saints are 0-4, while division rival Atlanta is 4-0. (The Saints face the 3-1 San Diego Chargers Oct. 7 before going into a bye week.) This is not what was supposed to happen. Brees says the team is capable of earning a playoff spot this year. “We go into the bye and get healthier, rejuvenated and ready to roll,” Brees said prior to the San Diego game. In 2009, the Saints won 13 games straight, he said. In 2007 — the last year the team started a season 0-4 — the Saints recovered, winning the next four games and finishing the season 8-8. What was the only team to begin a season 0-4 and reach the post-season? The 1992 Chargers, who finished that season by winning the AFC West division with an 11-5 record. The question for Black & Gold fans remains: What happened this season and where did things go wrong? The Saints defense ranks last in the NFL. Its offense is a shell of the recordbreaking version of a season ago. And this team clearly misses Payton. The confident swagger and execution the Saints once possessed is gone, replaced by dropped passes, too many mental mistakes and failures to execute in the fourth quarter. The unthinkable happened in the season opener against the Washington Redskins: The Saints fell 40-32. The Black & Gold appeared flat from the coin toss, and rookie quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin III passed for 320 yards for the Redskins. The Saints defense gave up 459 yards, while its offense managed just one touchdown in three quarters and turned over the ball three times. But hey, that was just one game — or so we thought. Everything would get fixed before the Saints met division opponent Carolina Panthers on the road the following week, right? The Saints offense scored on

Using fresh ingredients, many from the Crescent City Farmers Market, the Louisiana Seafood Exchange and Nor-Joe Imports, Rostoker cooks breakfast jams, meatballs, red gravy, stuffed artichokes, cannoli, praline bread pudding and other made-to-order dishes daily. Rostoker shops on Tuesdays when the restaurant is closed, making Wednesdays and Thursdays the best days to come for specials like soft-shell crab. Now that Red Gravy is open for BYOB dinner from 5 p.m until 9 p.m. Thursdays and Fridays, customers will find hearty fare like osso buco and an Italian version of shrimp and grits, which uses polenta. Rostoker is grateful to have enough business to sustain dinner service and catering for office parties, lunches and breakfasts. “To be the new kid on the block, especially a Yankee, I’m very appreciative of the support from all the local people,” she says.

ed Gravy (125 Camp St., 504561-8844; www.redgravycafe. com) owner and chef Roseann Melisi Rostoker is a petite powerhouse, commanding order and respect in the effortless way a mother does. Swift-walking, Jersey-talking Rostoker notices a dirty table. “What are you doing acting like there’s nothing to do? There are tables to be cleaned here,” she tells an employee. A New Jersey native, Rostoker began her decade-long love affair with New Orleans on a trip for her 41st birthday. “My boyfriend, my partner here in the restaurant, Lou Lombardo, took me here as a birthday present and we fell in love with the city absolutely,” Rostoker says. “We even felt like we’d been here before. The spirit, the smells, the fragrances, the sounds, the whole look all felt very familiar to us.” Rostoker guarantees the Red Gravy dining experience is almost identical to those she had growing up (excluding having 30 people eating around a pool table at Thanksgiving). She paid homage to New Orleans by naming the restaurant Red Gravy and serving gumbo, but she doesn’t plan to imitate New Orleans Italian. “It’s a different kind of Italian here,” she says, “There’s a lot of Southern influence and I’m trying to not go down that road. There’s enough people that have done that successfully and I just want it to stay true to my

d

iners generally go to restaurants to let someone else do the  cooking, though the exceptions can be memorable. Grilling  your own meat at Little Korea is one example, and here the  combinations of fresh and fermented vegetables, spicy sauces and  mellow starch make the experience all the more remarkable.       There are many menu options at Little Korea, so diners don’t  necessarily have to cook. Meal-sized soups carry ginseng  chicken or rice cakes and dumplings. Spicy stir fries mix strands  of pork and squid tentacles. Lunch specials arrive in many-chambered boxes, each holding components for a multifaceted meal.  But just watch as waitresses bring grilling setups to another table  and it becomes clear what you should have ordered.      There’s the gas burner and the fry pan, just like what you have  at home. Into the pan goes oil, garlic and, after a moment, a  plate of raw meat (pick the marinated beef over the bland, fatty  pork). There it snaps and sizzles, making an arrestingly aromatic  introduction to the meal. Fresh romaine, sticky rice and thick soy  sauce are provided for the assembly of small hand rolls, the end  product that proves the whole exercise is no tableside gimmick.  The meat is hot, slicked with garlicky oil, pungent with sauce and  no more than a chopstick’s length from pan to mouth.      Little Korea is a friendly, casual, family-run restaurant that  opened last summer inside a former Taco Bell that was renovated  on the inside but still looks very much like a fast food joint when  you drive down South Claiborne Avenue at 40 m.p.h.

    Historically, meat was scarce on the mountainous Korean peninsula, and this outrageously flavorful grilling technique evolved  to make the most of it. The cuisine also has elevated the manipulation of vegetables to an art form. One example is banchan, a  wide-ranging palette of fermented or pickled sides served before  and during the meal. Spicy, cabbage-based kimchi is the best  known, though at Little Korea diners might also get a heap of  shredded radish, eggplant or mung beans.     The banchan array makes a single dish seem like a larger  meal, but if diners want a proper first course, there are potato  croquettes bound with egg and slaw and fairly conventional fried  dumplings. Then there’s the “seafood pancake,” which is like a  flattened omelet lashed together with green onions and indistinct  chunks of shrimp and squid.      One holdover from the building’s fast food past is the multigunned soft drink dispenser in the corner. Diners can alternately  get Korean beer, which pairs much better with the spicy cuisine  than, say, Sprite, and little tumblers of soju, a mild, vodka-like  spirit distilled from sweet potatoes, and similar to Japanese sake.     Little Korea also serves a few Vietnamese staples. That’s  similar to what Vietnamese restaurants here did a generation ago  with parallel menus of Chinese dishes. In both examples, though,  choosing the kitchen’s true strength promises the best show at  the table. 

In 1999, Napa-based Joseph Phelps  Vineyards bought a former dairy farm in a  strategic spot along the Sonoma Coast  in California. The vintners developed the  property into Freestone Vineyard Estates,  maker of Fogdog wines. Its vines are  misted by the rolling Pacific fog, cooled  by the sea breezes and ripened by the  Sonoma sun. This elegant wine, produced  at Freestone’s three-tier gravity-flow  hillside winery, is aged 14 months in 35  percent new and 65 percent 2- to 3-yearold French  oak casks.  It offers  aromas of  vibrant red  fruit, wild  strawberry,  rhubarb,  baking spices and a hint of vanilla. In the  glass, taste tart cherry, red currants, plum,  black tea, herbal and earthy nuances, refined tannins and bright acidity. Decant an  hour before serving. Drink it with seared  tuna, grilled salmon, herbed lamb chops,  duck confit, rotisserie chicken, mushroom  risotto, beet salad and roasted vegetables.  Buy it at: rouses and Breaux Mart in Uptown and Martin Wine Cellar in Metairie.  Drink it at: Sazerac restaurant at The  roosevelt, La Petite Grocery, The Pelican  Club, Martinique Bistro, rib room, Cafe  Giovanni and Johnny’s Pizza House.

interview “Cheeses of the American South,” featuring the latest offerings from Southern cheese makers paired with beers from NOLA Brewing, cocktails made with Old New Orleans Rum and wines from James Moises, a local physician who makes wines in Willamette Valley, Ore. The class on Oct. 17 is devoted to cheeses that won American Cheese Society awards this year, paired with wines. Both events begin at 7 p.m. and cost $25, with advanced registration required through St. James Cheese Co. The series moves to Swirl (3143 Ponce de Leon St., 304-0635) on Oct. 18, when St. James teams up with the wine shop for a pairing of American cheeses and American wines. This event begins at 6:30 p.m., costs $30 and requires reservations through Swirl. On Oct. 23, St. James and St. Lawrence (219 N. Peters St., 525-4111; www.saintlawrencenola.com) will hold a five-course, cheese-themed dinner with beer pairings at the tavern. Dinner costs $65, with reservations required through St. Lawrence. Beer and cheese share the billing on Oct. 24, when St. James hosts seven microbrewers from around the region for a tasting and cheese pairing in the shop. This event will mark the debut of two upand-coming brewers, Chafunkta Brewery of Mandeville and Gnarley Barley of Ponchatoula. This event begins at 7 p.m., costs $35 and advanced registration is required through St. James.

Fall food festivals

Food is the draw at many fall festivals. Here are details on three upcoming events that combine good eats and good times. • The Louisiana Seafood Festival (www.louisianaseafoodfestival.com) has moved to a fall date and a new location

CHEF/CO-OWNER, GW FINS

T

enney Flynn and his business partner Gary Wollerman opened GW Fins (808 Bienville St., 504-581-3467; www.gwfins.com) in 2001. Both men previously held corporate positions at Ruth’s Chris Steak House, where Flynn was director of culinary operations for the international chain. The chef is often tapped to showcase Louisiana seafood out of state, and last month the U.S. Navy invited him to prepare a special dinner for 300 crewmembers aboard the U.S.S. Louisiana, a ballistic missile submarine based near Seattle. The GW Fins menu changes a lot from night to night. Does this make it hard to plan and provision? Flynn: That’s the beauty of printing up your menu daily. I don’t have to have anything specifically. We have about 60 to 70 sauce and garnish preparations, recipes that we can rotate through depending on what we get in that we know we can use with different types of fish. At first, we thought we’d be doing more imports and exotics, but usually about 70 percent of the finfish we’re using is coming out of the Gulf now. There are just a lot of different fish in the Gulf, and because we’re so close, we get things they just don’t see in other cities.

Canal Street Bistro 3903 Canal St., (504) 482-1225 www.canalstreetbistro.com Grilled plantains and roasted tomato salsa distinguish this version.

Coulis 3625 Prytania St., (504) 304-4265 Huevos rancheros are made with cheese-stuffed tortillas, crema and a lot of visual flair.

Fiesta Latina

Do seasonal variations direct the menu or is it other factors? F: Some things are seasonal, like soft-shell crabs in the warmer months and oysters are better when it gets cooler. For finfish, it has a lot to do with the fishing conditions out there. The weather can influence what we’re getting. For instance, I know if there’s a cold front coming through that will kick up a lot more flounder and you’ll start seeing that on more menus.

1924 Airline Drive, Kenner, (504) 469-5792 Huevos rancheros are one item on the taqueria’s extensive breakfast menu.

Your lobster po-boy has become something of a sensation at the Oak Street Po-Boy Festival each year. Have you thought of making it more often? F: Last year we had a three-block-long line for most of the day (at the festival), and we were making, I think, seven po-boys a minute for a lot of hours. Fried lobster is kind of sexy anyway, and when you take that knuckle meat and bread it and toss it in butter, that’s really good. But that’s a very seasonal product. We’d do it more if we could, but I can only get that product fresh a few months of the year, and frozen it’s just not any good. — IAN MCNULTY

Panola Street Cafe

along the Mississippi River. The event will be held Oct. 12-14 at Woldenberg Park, where nearly 20 restaurants and caterers will serve food. Naturally, Drago’s Seafood Restaurant will cook its trademark char-broiled oysters, and choices run the gamut, from shrimp and lima bean cassoulet from Borgne to fried oyster and Brie po-boys from 7 on Fulton to crawfish nachos from Ernst Cafe. The festival is hosted by the Louisiana Hospitality Foundation, a nonprofit run by hospitality industry insiders that supports local children’s causes, and a portion of proceeds benefits the foundation’s work. Local bands perform and there will be seafood cooking demonstrations and a kid’s pavilion from the Louisiana Children’s Museum. Admission is free. • This weekend also marks the start of Oktoberfest (www.oktoberfestnola.com), run by Deutsches Haus at Kenner’s Rivertown development (415 Williams Blvd.). The historic Deutsches Haus clubhouse in Mid-City was demolished as part of the LSU/VA Medical Center construction. Last month, the club acquired the title for a patch of land along Bayou St. John across from City Park. Club president Keith Oldendorf says that signals the start of a

capital campaign to build a new Deutsches Haus and Oktoberfest grounds there, and this year’s Oktoberfest will raise funds for that project. As usual, the event features tons of sausage, sauerkraut and Bavarian specialties prepared by club volunteers, and plenty of German beer. Visitors also will find beer and wine tastings, a “beer stein holding contest” (or masskrugstemmen) and, on Oct. 20, dachshund races. Oktoberfest runs each Friday and Saturday for the next three weekends, ending Oct. 27. Daily admission is $6. • The Crescent City Blues & BBQ Festival (www.jazzandheritage.org) will smoke up Lafayette Square (540 St. Charles Ave.) from Oct. 12-14. The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation, the nonprofit behind Jazz Fest, presents the free festival. An impressive slate of musicians perform on stage, and food booths serve a wide array and liberal interpretations of barbecue from more than a dozen restaurants. Boswell’s Jamaican Grill brings jerk from the Caribbean, Walker’s Love at First Bite (a regular vendor at Jazz Fest) brings cochon de lait from Cajun country and The Joint brings different Southern styles of barbecue.

7801 Panola St., (504) 314-1810 Change things up with pollo (chicken) rancheros.

Surrey’s Cafe & Juice Bar 1418 Magazine St., (504) 5243828; 4807 Magazine St., (504) 895-5757 www.surreyscafeandjuicebar.com There is a regular version and one with smoked salmon, goat cheese and capers.

Trends, notes, quirks and quotes from the world of food. “Authenticity in America is totally irrelevant. We try to be inspired by different things, we look at the dining experience as a whole. That’s our palette, and we paint a picture with those things. We’re all Americans and we live in Chicago and have a restaurant that’s inspired by what we’ve done and where we’ve traveled.” — Matthias Merges, chef at the Japanese restaurant Yusho in Chicago, quoted in a Bon Appetit article on the “state of AsianAmerican cooking.”

From its start in 2002, the “bourbon” part of Bourbon House (144 Bourbon St., 522-0111; www.bourbonhouse.com) has been more than just the address for this Dickie Brennan restaurant. The restaurant is the local hub for aficionados of America’s distinctive spirit, stocking an encyclopedic selection of bourbon and even organizing its own bourbon appreciation club, the New Orleans Bourbon Society. To mark its 10th anniversary on Wednesday, Oct. 10, Bourbon House will host a four-course dinner to debut a 10-year-old, single-barrel bourbon Evan Williams bottled specifically for the restaurant. The event features bourbon cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, a four-course meal with wine pairings, and a tasting of the anniversary bourbon. In addition, drinks writer Bernie Lubbers, author of Bourbon Whiskey: Our Native Spirit, will lead a bourbon tasting and share stories about bourbon. The event costs $75 and begins at 6:30 p.m. For reservations, call 274-1814 or email bk@dbcno.com.

Screen Pass The New Orleans Film Festival presents a wide array of films. By Will Coviello, Lauren LaBorde and Alex Woodward

F

About Cherry (8:30 p.m. Sat., Oct. 13; 6:30 p.m. Mon., Oct. 15; 8:45 p.m. Tue., Oct. 16; 8:30 p.m. Wed., Oct. 17; Chalmette Movies, 8700 W. Judge Perez Drive) Anyone considering making a mainstream drama about porn should cast someone as alluring as Ashley Hinshaw. About Cherry is the story of a young woman from Long Beach, Calif., who flees two alcoholic parents to live independently in San Francisco. Her job search takes her from cocktail waitressing in a strip club to fetish modeling and porn. Dressing Hinshaw in a school girl’s outfit here, a rubber nurse’s uniform there and progressing toward full-contact porn provides more than enough titillation to keep the audience’s attention, and it may help that the film has vanilla ideas of what fetishism looks like. What’s both surprising and disappointing is that co-creators Stephen Elliott and Lorelei Lee have sex work and porn credentials between them and they deliver a film that follows Hollywood formulas — with some moderately risque fetish costumes and lesbianism — and they keep it skin deep. Hinshaw looks perfect for the role of Angelina (who goes by Cherry on set) and does a credible job with what little the film demands: staring at the camera and cooing softly about how she loves to have guys watch while she touches herself and

acting creeped out by the loathsome and rich lawyer effortlessly provided by James Franco. Dev Patel (Slumdog Millionaire, The Newsroom) tags along as Angelina’s platonic friend Andrew. Elliott is a former sex worker and an accomplished writer, receiving high praise for The Adderall Diaries. Lee has appeared in more than 60 porn films (including Ass Parade 12, Face Time! and Milk Nymphos, as listed on the Internet Adult Film Database). She’s also written about sex and culture in academic publications, and Hustler magazine named her one of the 10 smartest actresses in porn. In About Cherry, however, Elliott and Lee don’t have anything particularly interesting to say about porn and see it more as just another job. Angelina seems to have no personal hangups (relating to booze, sex, money, friendships with men, etc.) or inhibitions. Apparently, it’s just a good paycheck for a high school dropout. The film was shot at the site of Kink.com’s massive studios in San Francisco, and the movie version comes off as the best work environment one could imagine. At worst, a few open-minded sex workers share too much information about what turns them on. The enclave may be less threatening to them then some of the creeps who hang out in strip clubs, as personified by Franco. Doing porn comes off as far less toxic than spending time with the cokeaddicted, self-loathing lawyer, who also happens to be an extremely well-connected member of San Francisco’s high-rolling art world. The climax of the film is a juxtaposition of Angelina’s embrace of full-blown porn with Franco’s efforts to escape the emptiness he feels in his socially respected career and personal life. They seem to get what they want, even if it’s not really each other. — WILL COVIELLO

Compliance (7:30 p.m. Fri., Oct. 12; 6:30 p.m. Sun., Oct. 14; 8:30 p.m. Mon., Oct. 15; 6:30 p.m. Thu., Oct. 18; Chalmette Movies) Compliance spends most of its first half-hour drawing viewers in with the lurid threat of a strip

search, and even if there is an exAshley Hinshaw and James tremely bare-bones storyline, the Franco in About Cherry, tension is brilliant and the menace which screens at Chalmette is palpable throughout the movie.

film goes on, it’s clearly about the psychology of people under stress and in control. Several people find themselves drawn into the problem and juggle the strange mix of fear, compassion, selfdefense, authority and aggression. It’s a riveting and troubling psychological drama. — WILL COVIELLO

Informant (2:30 p.m. Sun., Oct. 14, Prytania Theatre, 5339 Prytania St.) In Jamie Meltzer’s gripping profile of infamous FBI informant Brandon Darby, the subject acts as an unreliable narrator to his own story, following an extended metamorphosis from teenage runaway to militant anarcho-activist to reluctant anti-hero to backstabber and right-wing patriot.

The film’s bookends illustrate the sharp divide between, and the gradual conversion to, the tea party brand of conservatism he now trusts and the radical anarchism and community building he once embraced as an impassioned mission. The troubled Pasadena, Texas teenager watched his family get sick from nearby chemical refineries. “I watched no one get in trouble for it,” he says. Darby co-founded Common Ground Relief in the immediate wake of Hurricane Katrina and the levee failures, acting as some of the first boots on the ground in the devastated Lower 9th Ward. Darby and allies Robert King Wilkerson, a former Black Panther, and Scott Crow — who all are

interviewed separately — don’t deny the work Darby did during the “glory days” of the organization, despite then-NOPD 5th District Commander John Bryson’s belief the group was “there to overthrow the government.” But after a mysterious trip to Venezuela, Darby was tired and jaded — and with Bryson’s gradual cooperation, he began to see police in a new perspective. He sought “help” by reporting potentially violent or corrupt comrades, like a Palestinian man he suspected was supporting terrorist groups. “As much as it seems crazy that a revolutionary would work with the FBI at some point,” Darby says, “under the circumstances, I don’t think it’s that crazy.” His cooperation with FBI agents led to the four-year prison sentence of protestors arrested at the 2008 Republican National Convention, and when he was outed, Darby immediately alienated and infuriated the post-Katrina activist community he helped build. Meltzer lets Darby offer a candid glimpse into his political schizophrenia, constantly reminding himself and others how they should perceive his thoughts and actions. Lower 9th Ward resident Ken Gaspard says, “The community? We love him. We’d take him back with open arms. The activist community? They might try and shoot him.” — ALEX WOODWARD

Side By Side (6:30 p.m. Sat., Oct. 13, 6:30 p.m. Wed., Oct. 17; Chalmette Movies) Director Chris Kenneally sets up a very simple battle in Side by Side: film versus digital video. But the documentary almost immediately sheds the notion of a battle for supremacy, and it becomes a chronicle of the evolution of digital filmmaking, computer effects and technology. The documentary is interspersed with scenes from landmark films, and it begins with an homage to brilliant cinematography and the age of film. But it soon refocuses on the rise of computerized filmmaking, from the earliest digital camera prototypes in 1969 up to the James Cameron extravaganza of 3-D moviemaking in Avatar. That progression started with higher definition cameras, post-production computerized additions, CGI effects and three-dimensional filmmaking techniques. Cameron and George Lucas are interviewed extensively, and both are clear advocates of pushing technological methods as far as possible. There are many filmmakers and cinematographers who talk about their love of film, from its graininess and inherent visual qualities to its “authenticity” (and that’s a well-debated point on both sides). But any sense of competition between the two mediums is quickly laid aside. Directors from

Festival highlights Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho will be screened by NOLA Drive-In on the roof of the former Schwegmann’s at 300 N. Broad Street at 7:30 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 14. It’s an outdoor event featuring a large screen and there will be food and drink vendors. Doors open at 6 p.m. The festival presents a 75th anniversary screening of the restored 1937 classic Grand Illusion, the first foreign film nominated for a Best Picture Oscar. Jean Renoir’s film is considered a masterpiece of French cinema. During World War I, two French soldiers plan to escape from a German prison, and ultimately the film asks if war thwarts the benefits of a more unified Europe. Prints of the film were denounced and confiscated by the Nazis, later confiscated by the Soviet Union and returned to France in the 1960s (noon Sun., Oct. 14; noon Tue., Oct. 16.; Prytania Theatre, 5339 Prytania St.). Quartet is Dustin Hoffman’s directorial debut. The comedy features retired opera singers who can’t get along as they try to organize a benefit concert around Giuseppe Verdi’s birthday (4:45 p.m. Sun. Oct. 14; Prytania Theatre). There are several music-related films of note. Andrew Bird: Fever Year follows the former Squirrel Nut Zipper over the course of a year on tour (2 p.m. Sun., Oct. 14; NOMA, City Park). The Girls in the Band documents female jazz and big band musicians from the 1930s to the present (8

p.m. Sun., Oct. 14; NOMA). True Family profiles New Orleans chanteuse Meschiya Lake and other local musicians. It screens outdoors at the Old U.S. Mint (400 Esplanade Ave., 7:30 p.m. Mon. Oct. 15). Some of the major studio releases in the festival were shot in Louisiana, including The Paperboy and The Iceman. Other notable films include Bayou Blue, about a serial killer who preyed upon men in impoverished Southeastern Louisiana communities (5:45 p.m. Sat. Oct. 13, CAC, 900 Camp St.; 1:30 p.m. Mon., Oct. 15, Prytania Theatre). Herman’s House is about Herman Wallace, who had been incarcerated in solitary confinement at the Louisiana Penitentiary at Angola for decades when art student Jackie Sumell asked him to describe his dream home (5 p.m. Sun., Oct. 14, CAC; 3:15 p.m. Mon., Oct. 15, Prytania Theatre). In 2010, filmmakers challenged New Orleans artists and musicians to improvise instruments out of found objects. Liquid Land captures their efforts (7:30 p.m. Tue., Oct. 16, Zeitgeist Multi-Disciplinary Arts Center, 1618 Oretha Castle Haley Blvd.). Director Conni Castille profiles horse culture in Acadiana, from Creole cowboys to the Courir du Mardi Gras in T-Galop: A Louisiana Horse Story (1:45 p.m. Sun., Oct. 14, CAC; 3:45 p.m. Wed., Oct. 17, Prytania Theatre). And there is a screening of drag queen Varla Jean Merman’s mockumentary Varla Jean and the Mushroom Heads (8:15 p.m. Mon, Oct. 15, CAC).

Now, Forager

Now, Forager (7:30 p.m. Sat., Oct. 13, The Theatres at Canal Place, 333 Canal St., third floor; 4 p.m. Thu., Oct. 18, Prytania Theatre) in Now, Forager, married couple Lucien (Jason Cortlund, who also directed the film with Julia Halperin) and Regina

(Tiffany esteb) work as mushroom foragers, selling their finds to high-end New York restaurants. When the film first exposes their marriage, it’s already a little moldy. The life of foraging excites the fungi-obsessed Lucien, but because they are at the mercy of seasons and picky chefs, Regina worries about their unstable income. it’s difficult for the audience to root for the couple because it’s difficult to unearth the good in the relationship. When Regina worries about the impracticality of foraging, she takes on a series of kitchen jobs while Lucien forages further into the woods. in their respective pursuits, both begin to question their decisions. Regina takes a job at an “authentic” Basque restaurant that is anything but; Lucien, after an unsuccessful mushroom hunt in the Washington, D.C./Maryland area, is forced to take a catering gig with an unreasonable, WASP-y client. There are some subtle comedic moments during those parts, especially for foodies who will appreciate that Thousand island dressing is not a suitable dipping sauce for Basque cuisine. Food connoisseurs will appreciate the film most. Pristine shots linger on Lucien preparing a big, fresh-caught fish, or wild mushrooms that Lucien’s voiceover describes in detail. And anyone who has worked in the restaurant industry will relate to the struggles that can take a toll on a relationship. But from the start, Lucien and Regina’s relationship seems unloving and lacking in passion — mostly because of Lucien, a smug, insufferable man whose first, and maybe only, love is fungi. Lucien seems never able to be fully satisfied and by the end of Now, Forager, neither are we. — LAuReN LABoRDe

David Lynch to Steven Soderbergh to Lena Dunham have points to make about why they have certain preferences, but Martin Scorsese seems to moderate the issue best, simply saying that different people will best use the tools they choose to try to make the film they envision. This is a documentary for people who love the process of making movies. Many interview subjects offer insightful observations about the nuts and bolts process, from being able to see a shot immediately on a video monitor to the limits once imposed by shooting reels with 10 minutes worth of film. Several directors talk about the tension created on set by the sound of expensive film whirring through the camera. John Malkovich says he finds film acting difficult because of the constant start and stop process. There’s one overindulgence in the documentary, and that’s the presence of producer Keanu Reeves (The Matrix, Speed, Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure). He narrates and serves as on-camera interviewer, and there are far too many shots of him dramatically formulating questions (in a distracting array of haircuts, facial hair looks, wardrobe). Perhaps it takes a grand vision to make a film or push technological boundaries, but some of Reeves’ preening should have been left on the cutting room floor. Film editing is an important skill too. — WiLL CovieLLo

Gonzalez’s sweeping new-gaze albums may feel as large as the heavens — either side of the 2011 double LP Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming (Mute) might have warranted the near-universal admiration it received from fans and critics — yet he plants his ideas in the most human place possible: the simple mind of a child, spilled out in whispered inner monologues that pop up periodically to narrate between all the Peter Gabriel yelps, Milky Way synth swirls and Mike Tyson drum fills, transferring abstract concepts (toad-licking bedtime story “Raconte-Moi Une Histoire”) from synapses to supernovas. On 2008’s Saturdays = Youth, Gonzalez indulged a lifelong fascination with his formative teenage years, reordering time, space and memory via the choral washes of “Kim & Jessie” and “Graveyard Girl.” With the voice-activated laser show of “Midnight City,” the long-fuse explosion of “Wait” and the double-barrel blast of “New Map,” Hurry Up dreams bigger — not just of where the wild things are, but when.

Frankenweenie © 2012 Disney

Frankenweenie (Pg) Directed by Tim Burton Voices provided by Martin Short, Winona Ryder, Catherine O’Hara and others Wide release

There’s never a shortage of horror movies around Halloween. But the gorefests often made today bear little resemblance to the classics known by adults of all ages from endless showings on late-night TV. Filmmaker Tim Burton built a highly successful career on his love of vintage horror — especially movies from the 1950s to the early ’70s. Burton’s most memorable films, from Edward Scissorhands to The Nightmare Before Christmas, take their cues from the character-driven monster movies he loved when he was young, even as they diverge into far-flung territories of fantasy, romance and musicals. Based on Burton’s 1984 short film of the same name, the full-length Frankenweenie doesn’t expand much on the earlier film’s story. Instead, it devotes itself to paying direct and loving tribute to Godzilla, The Fly and countless other creature features familiar from horror’s glory days. Burton’s original Frankenweenie isn’t the kind of film that typically gets remade. It’s a humble variation on the original 1931 Frankenstein movie, shifting the story to modern-day suburbia as a boy named Victor Frankenstein reanimates his beloved Sparky after the dog is hit by a car. Burton’s full-length Frankenweenie retains the live-action short film’s characters and plot but places them in the otherworldly realm of stop-motion animation. It keeps us entertained by piling on the references to other movies — you may find yourself trying to count them all once the credits roll. The all-out homage extends to new characters based on the big-screen personas of Vincent Price, Boris Karloff and Peter Lorre, leaving little doubt as to where Burton’s heart truly lies. Frankenweenie even adopts the visual aesthetic of low-budget horror. It was shot in high-contrast black-andwhite and rendered into 3-D. The results can be seen as the polar opposite of Burton’s previous forays into stop-motion animation. Where movies like Corpse Bride and James and the Giant Peach offer lush visual detail, Frankenweenie comes off willfully stark and austere. Burton’s highly stylized puppets remain, but they are framed differently than before with just a touch of his trademark expressionism. It took 33 animators two years to make the movie, and it takes some time to get used to its overall look and feel. The 3-D effects don’t add anything significant to the experience, a trend to which regular moviegoers have become accustomed lately. It’s worth remembering that animated films aren’t necessarily made for small children. The youngest kids at the promotional screening I attended seemed confused and even disturbed by Frankenweenie — it’s a dark movie with a deceptively cute name and a Disney brand. It’s also an obvious labor of love for Burton, and his best film in quite some time. But it’s more in the dark spirit of Halloween than even longtime fans are likely to expect. — KEN KORMAN

Ah childhood, that wondrous time when all the world is new. It is an age of marvels, but marvels are not always marvelous. Childhood friends may reveal the world to us, but they might also get us in trouble. Some kids are kind and some are cruel, but most parents are almost never cool. Childhood’s complexities are explored in Alan Gerson’s new paintings. In Children’s Garden, two hairless boys ride on the shoulders of their hairless, business-suited fathers through a lush tropical landscape filled with strange plants that greet their arrival with seemingly carnivorous interest. In Birthday a twisted looking tyke poses grimly with a cake in a room choked with darkly bulbous balloons and the kinds of colorful packages that make you think “bomb.” In Mask (pictured), a child in a too realistic Frankenstein mask stands stiffly in front of a brick building that looks like an old-time prison (or grade school), in a stiffly menacing pose that makes gun control seem like a pretty good idea. Gerson, who describes himself as a “recovering attorney,” paints children the way Diane Arbus photographed them, in canvases where the walls are always claustrophobic and plants are always gravid with dark portent. Lets hope they don’t grow up to be lawyers. More Gersons appear in the Kinderszenen show at Tulane, but here there are contrasts. In Mark Bercier’s paintings, little girls sometimes seem deliriously gaga, but the stark graphics in his Healin’ Symbols and Forgotten Dreams canvases invoke both A.R. Penck’s graphic expressionism and Henry Darger’s disturbed innocence to strike a balance between sweet and creepy that keeps you guessing. Figurative art, to be any good, must convey as much psychological substance as any actual human does, and here Sibylle Peretti truly excels in work like her Genie and Victor series of armless ceramic sculptures, which radiate inner lives quietly fraught with intensely complex emotions. — D. ERIC BookHARDT

Bingo. “The Winning Musical.” Get it? Subtle, it ain’t. Neither was the show, presented recently at the AllWays Lounge and Theatre, but it had some saving graces in sheer nonsense and an irresistible cast. Bingo begins with a burst of thunder, lightning and rain. A hurricane, you’d think, but the play, which opened Off-Broadway a few years ago, is not set on the Gulf Coast. Verna, Patsy and Honey (Tracey Collins, Rebecca Rae and Dorian Rush) debate whether to drive to their weekly gambling excursion in this severe weather by singing the show’s anthem: “What’s a little rain to a night with girls?” Minnie (Becky Allen) enters her bingo hall with a flashlight because the power has gone out. Her sideman Sam (Dennis Monn) fires up the generator. There is some talk about the game, which involves the audience, all of whom have bingo cards. This sort of participation continues through the show. When the trio enters, they sit at a table onstage, because, much to Verna’s annoyance, someone in the audience is sitting in her lucky seat. Annoyance is Verna’s strong suit, and she’s the tough guy of the gang. Rush is a blonde who is not playing with a full deck. Patsy is obsessed with good luck charms, like troll dolls and dyed rabbits’ feet. Sam is the bingo caller, and he’s also Honey’s secret heartthrob. Their love duet “Gentleman Caller” is charming. There’s just so much fun you can get out of G-59, N-21 and O-72, so creators Michael Heitzman, Ilene Reid and David Holcenberg threw in a zany melodrama. It’s implausible and confusing, but the brio of the cast makes it delightful anyway. The raging storm reminds the women of a night 15 years ago when they came to play bingo with a fourth longtime friend. The friend Beatrice (Kathleen Cafiero) was close to Verna, but there was confusion when both of them simultaneously bought second cards. Beatrice got a bingo, and in a fury, Verna ended the friendship and banished Beatrice from the group. Returning to the present, a mysterious young bingo player named Allison (Caroline Fourmy) enters, and revives the controversy with a few plot twists and sentimental indulgences. Musical director/accompanist Harry Mayronne Jr. and director Chris Wecklein created an enjoyable show. — DALT WONK

JOB GURU

ANNOUNCEMENTS

Dear New Orleans Job Guru, “I graduated with a degree in Biology a couple of years ago and was considering med school, but that didn’t work out, so I’ve just been working in my family’s business for the past two years. I’m interested in a job in pharmaceutical sales. How can I get my foot in the door?” — Marie T., Metairie, LA Dear Marie, Pharmaceutical companies generally require an undergraduate degree, preferably in the Sciences, which you have, so that is a good start. For entry-level positions, pharmaceutical firms often recruit at university job fairs. Since you’ve been out of college for several years now, you will need to generate some networking and make Grant Cooper a case that you are an ideal candidate in order to land an interview. Also, Marie, remember that Pharmaceutical Sales Representatives are in the business of selling, so having a background and experience in outside sales is considered an essential qualification of the job. In fact, a number of my clients who are currently successful pharmaceutical sales professionals, took jobs in entry-level outside sales (telecom, copiers, insurance, etc.) just in order to get a year’s worth of experience before they applied to a medical sales position. One of our clients with a background similar to yours really wanted to break into pharmaceutical sales. We reshaped her résumé to emphasize her college coursework and labs in the sciences, highlighted her volunteer work in a medical clinic, emphasized her sales experience in previous positions, and created a cover letter that essentially “sold” her as a sales-oriented candidate with a scientific aptitude. She received a part-time offer, accepted it, and was soon brought on board as a full-time pharmaceutical sales representative, based upon her performance.

Gambit > bestofneworleans.com > october 9 > 2012

One of the best ways to enter the field of pharmaceutical sales is to reach out to a current sales professional in that field. Ask your friends and relatives if they know someone in that profession. If you can’t find anyone, do some research online through LinkedIn and try to build a networking relationship with someone who can give you the “inside scoop” on the business. Here are a couple of pointers that may help you to break into pharmaceutical sales: 1. Volunteer during weekends or evenings at a medical facility or clinic… then add that experience to your résumé. 2. The next time you have a check-up from your physician, ask politely if he/she can refer you to a drug rep.

140

3. Retool your résumé to illustrate the qualities pharmaceutical companies are looking for in a candidate. 4. Read pharmaceutical industry magazines and articles on the web so you will be familiar with their terminology. 5. Consider getting your CNPR® Certification. While this alone will not guarantee that you will be hired, it could make all the difference in attracting interviews and opportunities. Here is the information on obtaining this certification: The National Association of Pharmaceutical Representatives (NAPRx®) is a trade association for pharmaceutical sales reps who work in the pharmaceutical industry. NAPRx® provides CNPR® Certification to candidates who wish to compete for a pharmaceutical sales career. Go to www.napsronline.org. New Orleans Job Guru is New Orleans native Grant Cooper. President of Strategic Résumés®, Grant ranks in the Top 2% of 340 LinkedIn National Résumé Writing Experts and has assisted the U.S. Air Force, Kinko’s, the Louisiana Dept. of Labor, the City of New Orleans, NFL/NBA players & coaches, as well as universities, regional banks, celebrities, and major corporations.
