That became the jumping- noise ordinances. off point for Palmer’s office to PHOTO BY CHERYL GERBER consider a new noise ordinance — which grew to “60-something pages,” Webre said. “We pulled back and thought maybe we need to do this piecemeal,” she said. “(The current ordinance) is not that it’s bad. It’s not. There are parts that could be changed. But the most important is enforcement.” In April 2012, the City Council passed an ordinance primarily targeting Bourbon Street bars blasting recorded music from speakers — which now must be set back at least 10 feet from doors and windows. It was Palmer’s first step towards new “noise” legislation. “We thought this was an easy way,” Webre said. “It doesn’t require police to carry sophisticated equipment, just a tape measure.” But NOPD has no dedicated noise-control personnel. Its quality-of-life officers respond to noise complaints, which come from 911 calls. Webre said that’s another issue with enforcement: finding better ways to address complaints, particularly as “clubs are expanding” and “tourists and people from other communities PAGE 9

THIS WEEK’S Question:

The NOPD will ban all “visible tattoos” on its officers beginning Aug. 1. Local police unions aren’t happy. What do you think of the ban?


“Noise control” falls under the city’s department of health and the New Orleans Police Department. Under the ordinance, both departments “have the power” to perform noise monitoring and inspections and prosecute violators. Exempt from “noise control” are streetcars, jazz funerals, parades, construction, church bells and other ordinary city sounds. Recommendations for a new noise ordinance address the question of “control”: How much does the neighborhood or enforcement have over the noise coming from a venue? Also, is “enforcement” for a crime or a complaint? A frequently used word is “reasonable” — from how sound levels should be measured (from a nearby house or from a venue? Is the window open? Is the house even up to code so sound should not leak into it?) to what one should expect in New Orleans and its neighborhoods (e.g., “Why do you live next door to a music venue?”). Nicole Webre, Palmer’s legislative director, said Palmer has made redrafting the noise ordinance a priority since she took office in 2010 — also the year NOPD officers forced the To Be Continued Brass Band from its spot at the intersection of Canal

n June 17, word spread that more than a dozen neighborhood groups planned to take the steps at New Orleans City Hall the next morning to present their outline of “seven essential items to make a noise ordinance work for New Orleans.” But it never happened. The coalition of groups, chaired by former Vieux Carre Property Owners and Residents Association (VCPORA) President Nathan Chapman, knew it would be walking into a protest, Chapman said. “Our plan was to get it out there, get out our own story,” Chapman said. “There’s no point in having a circus.” The New Orleans City Council is reviewing recommendations to update the city’s noise ordinance, first drafted in 1956 and infrequently updated until the mid-1990s (the last revision was in 1998). In December 2011, the city hired acoustician and sound expert David Woolworth to study noise levels and their impact, make recommendations in a report and submit it to District C New Orleans City Councilwoman Kristin Gisleson Palmer (who represents the entertainment-heavy French Quarter and Marigny). Palmer and her staff are now reviewing the lengthy report — nearly 100 pages, with a 189-page appendix. But that’s not the only report or recommendation. The neighborhood coalition released its own recommendations June 18, and the Music and Culture Coalition of New Orleans (MACCNO) — which represents music venue owners and performers citywide — made theirs. The three sets of recommendations — the city’s is pending — are not necessarily in response to one another, nor do they challenge each other’s points. But MACCNO and the neighborhood groups want a conversation with the City Council before a new noise ordinance comes to the table.

are seeing more music, and music where there wasn’t before.” In April, the bar Mimi’s in the Marigny suspended its music programming after Marigny residents filed a lawsuit in Orleans Parish Civil District Court. The suit said the bar hosts music “illegally” and noise is “plainly audible” in neighborhood homes and businesses, causing “physical discomfort and annoyance.” On his website, attorney Stuart H. Smith wrote that the city “is not being fully responsive to either its citizens or to the laws that protect them. This is not just an assault upon the ears, but against a civil society. If you care about protecting neighborhoods demand that quality of life laws be enforced by your elected officials.” Smith works with “Hear the Music, Stop the Noise,” representing the coalition of neighborhood groups that presented seven recommendations for a new citywide noise ordinance. Palmer has not made any decisions yet about what a noise ordinance should look like, according to Webre. “What she does recognize is we need more public education and enforcement,” Webre said. “Not necessarily citing people, but having conversations with businesses and neighbors about noise.”


MACCNO represents “a community group composed of musicians, cultural workers and bearers, residents and business owners,” it says on its website. At a July 17 meeting at Kermit Ruffins’ Speakeasy on Basin Street, the noise ordinance was at the top of the agenda. The bar, has hosted regular meetings for the group every other week since last September. Ruffins had called for a community meeting in response to the suspension of live music at Mimi’s in the Marigny, Siberia and Circle Bar, among others, following city permit checks. Attendees at that meeting assembled an ad hoc “committee” to address concerns from venue owners, musicians, second-line paraders and the larger music and cultural community. This month, MACCNO launched a petition (which gathered more than 200 signatures as of press time) to support its own noise ordinance proposal. The petition includes the following: “We believe that the culture and music of New Orleans form the backbone of our city. It enhances the quality of life, creates income and opportunity for thousands of residents, and has created one of the most distinctive and famous destinations in the world. A noise ordinance that threatens the culture of New Orleans not only damages the ability of thousands of people to make a living, lowers property values and endangers quality of life, but it puts the very identity and uniqueness of the City in danger.” The proposal — “A Noise Ordinance for All New Orleanians” — includes five broad recommendations. It argues against the need for a “blanket” citywide ordinance and instead favors regulations “appropriate to the individual character and soundscapes of the city’s diverse neighborhoods”; it also argues against criminalization of noise complaints and calls for “a formalized mediation process.” (“Criminalizing live music is neither a good neighbor policy nor a good economic policy in a city that thrives on the availability, diversity, and innovation of performance,” it reads.) MACCNO also calls for a dedicated city office to handle noise complaints, as well as more clarity in the laws for street performers, including publicly posted hours and noise level parameters, and workshops and training on any new regulations. Its final recommendation aims to protect cultural traditions, including jazz funerals, second lines, parades and street performances. MACCNO asks that the city host public hearings and reach out to the cultural community for input before its noise ordinance goes to a vote. MACCNO moderator Hannah Kreiger-Benson told Gambit that its recommendations were not in response to the neighborhood coalition — updating the noise ordinance has been a MACCNO priority since its meetings last year. Releasing the recommendations now, however, wasn’t a coincidence. “We wanted to publicly state things that are important as public discussion goes forward,” she said. “These are the things that need to guide discussion and are non-negotiable to ensure the noise ordinance … recognizes the cultural community.” Melissa Weber, aka DJ Soul Sister, whose Saturday night Hustle! event at Mimi’s moved to Hi-Ho Lounge following the litigation, told Gambit that a noise ordinance must be, in part, “written by people who understand that musical culture in New Orleans comes from the bottom up.” She said enforcing “noise” without considering the musicians who develop from small, neighborhood clubs will kill “that impromptu


NEWS + VIEWS energy” people expect from New Orleans. “I don’t want to see it not allowed for small businesses to have music,” she said. “That’s not good for the neighborhood. We’re losing that. … The culture has to start from the neighborhoods.” In its recommendations, the neighborhood coalition (under “Hear the Music, Stop the Noise”) calls for music venues to regularly document its noise measurements; the appointment of full-time noise control personnel; and for all sound measurements to be taken from the property line of the sound source. It also recommends state legislators pass legislation to “impose penalties that will deter repeat offenses for abuse of sound ordinance standards. In the absence of this legislation, consider other deterrents such as limited operating hours or complete shut down of the offending establishment.” Another recommendation calls for a public role in the mayoralty permitting process — which grants venues operating permits for live entertainment — “to ensure advance public notification and opportunities for public comment.” The coalition also recommends that the decibel levels specifically in the French Quarter’s Vieux Carre Commercial (VCC) and Vieux Carre Residential (VCR) districts return to the levels that existed in 1989. Decibel level and the science of sound are the linchpins in the noise ordinance conversation. The neighborhood coalition wants to set a 60-decibel limit in the VCR from 10 p.m. to 7 a.m., a 65-decibel limit in the VCC, and a maximum limit of 85 decibels in residential areas of the French Quarter. (For reference, the American Tinnitus Association says 60 decibels is about the volume of a sewing machine; 85 is the sound of traffic from inside a car.) “We want to make sure the excesses are turned down a little bit,” Chapman said. “It’s not like people are going to stay in their hotel rooms.” After it released its recommendations, the neighborhood coalition met some pushback from several local publications for its reach and clunky language — particularly a quote from Algiers Neighborhood Presidents Council President Val Exnicios, who said, “Serious musicians, event organizers and club owners work hard to reward us with wonderful melodies at sensible times with proper volumes.”


MACCNO and the neighborhood coalition find common ground on at least two things: enforcement and regulation. MACCNO calls for “professional enforcement and education” handled by a “dedicated office directed with handling noise complaints that is both accessible and accountable. It is integral that this office be tasked with providing outreach to residents, businesses, performers, cultural workers, and other members of the cultural community about rules and regulations. This office must also take the lead in starting and fostering any mediation necessary to bring all involved parties to a mutually satisfying resolution of issues.” The neighborhood coalition wants the city to “appoint a full-time person who will have the authority and affirmative duty to administer and enforce the ordinances, and who shall have the full backing of NOPD and Health Department, and who shall establish and maintain a publicly accessible (via interactive website) centralized recordkeeping system to track complaints, enforcement and compliance efforts.” MACCNO sees “mediation” and community input as a means of “noise” control; the neighborhood coalition’s blanket description of “noise” amounts to what is or isn’t above a certain decibel level. Both groups have sent copies of their recommendations to the City Council, which is still reviewing Woolworth’s report. Webre said council staff has met with him regularly. So has MACCNO; Woolworth held a MACCNO teach-in last year. “His report is his report,” Webre said. “Whether he decided to include (recommendations) is up to him. They’re welcome to come to the table and discuss his recommendations.” As an election year approaches after more than a year of writing, researching and reviewing the ordinance, Palmer and her staff are now planning how to release the information. “Coming up on the timeline, is this going to go before a committee? Are we going to put it on the city’s website ahead of time to come up with questions and comments?” Webre said. “That’s what we’re doing now: finding a timeline.”

Quote of the week

“We know our system of justice is not perfect. It has made many mistakes in the past. But the President’s call is to honor the verdict of this jury and this court and to work toward more justice in the future. We know examples of people who should have gone to prison that didn’t [and] people who didn’t go to prison that should, people that went that shouldn’t have. And we just have to keep working on a better system.” — Sen. Mary Landrieu, reacting to a Florida jury that acquitted George Zimmerman on a charge of second-degree murder stemming from the shooting of Trayvon Martin. The verdict sparked protests around the country, most of them peaceful, including a gathering of several hundred people in Washington Square Park.

Unmentioned in the item: Nolan will be taking her alliterative brand of party coverage to the paper’s competition, The Advocate — following in the heels of longtime former T-P party photographer Steven Forster.

Here comes the sun LOWER 9TH LEADS CITY IN SOLAR PERMITS AND PRODUCTION The New Orleans Sierra Club released a report July 16 showing the Lower 9th Ward leads the city in solar energy production. According to the report, since 2007, 10 percent of solar permits issued by the city were for Lower 9th Ward residences — five times more solar permits than the rest of New Orleans. The report says 12 percent of homes in the neighborhood are permitted for solar installation, with average monthly electric bill savings of $45. Neighborhoodwide, the savings amount to more than $16,000. Between January 2007 and March 2013, the city has issued 2,594 solar permits, of which 247 are in the Lower 9th Ward. The Make it Right Foundation alone has installed 95 solar arrays. The Sierra Club estimates that over the next 25 years, the neighborhood will prevent 38,790 tons of carbon from entering the atmosphere. — ALEX WOODWARD

Stake your claim PICK UP YOUR BRICK, PURSE OR OTHER LOST PROPERTY AT NOPD Jacob Philip Watson, there’s a gray canvas bag waiting for you at New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) headquarters. Fran MacKay, come pick up your phone. It’s inside a yellow, white and blue purse. And anyone looking for his or her “drug paraphernalia,” the cops have that, too. Just go down and ask for it. These and other NOPD-recovered items are scheduled for a late-spring cleaning of sorts — such unclaimed property will be disposed of. The department asks that the “rightful owners” claim their property and bring

proof of ownership between 8 a.m. and 2 p.m. weekdays. You can find the full list of unclaimed property at www.nola. gov/nopd/citizen-services/disposals. Among the other items on the list: bikes (several dozen), skateboards (two), purses (nine), knives (20), assorted gift cards and bottles of Ciroc (two). There also are nondescript, seemingly insignificant items like “T-shirt,” “black hat” and one “large brown brick.” Also on the city’s summer-cleaning agenda: city-owned surplus property, which can be found at city-owned-property. Among the available lots are the Poland Avenue stables, which will be auctioned at a multi-property auction 10 a.m. July 31 at City Hall. Open house is noon to 2 p.m. July 26. On July 18, the city’s Department of Public Works held its third abandoned vehicle auction of the year at the Almonaster Auto Pound. Seventy-two vehicles were on the block. Since May 2010, the city has collected more than $888,000 from 14 vehicle auctions, which have sold more than 1,200 cars. — ALEX WOODWARD

Scuttlebits ALL THE NEWS THAT DOESN’T FIT • Another week, another Republican in the statehouse: State Sen. Rick Ward III of Port Allen became the third Democrat in recent weeks to flip to the GOP, following State Rep. Jim Fannin of Jonesboro and — most famously — State Sen. Elbert Guillory of Opelousas. Guillory, who is African-American, got the most national ink for his switch. Syndicated columnist Star Parker (also a Republican African-American) recently suggested the GOP should support Guillory as an alternative to Democratic Sen. Mary Landrieu in next year’s Senate race … • Deborah Cotton, the Gambit correspondent who was shot while covering a second line parade last spring, is home from the hospital and continues to recuperate. Friends of Cotton are holding a benefit at Gasa Gasa July 26, with entertainment by DJ Soul Sister.

PUBLIC MEETING TO ADDRESS PROPOSED FARE HIKES Veolia Transportation, which operates the Regional Transit Authority (RTA), drew fire at the beginning of this month for drastically reducing the hours of the Algiers ferry, which traditionally had crossed the Mississippi River until midnight at no cost to passengers (cars were charged $1). The reason for the curtailment? The end of the tolls on the Algiers side of the Crescent City Connection, which voters kayoed last year. (New Orleanians are still luckier than those who depended on the Gretna ferry, which previously was discontinued.) Now Veolia is proposing a new fare system for the Algiers ferry, which would include a $2 crossing charge, $1 for seniors and the disabled and a $75 monthly pass. Have an opinion on that? There will be a public hearing on the fare hikes in the New Orleans City Council chamber at 5 p.m. Aug. 5. According to the group Friends of the Ferry, the first public ferry connecting New Orleans to the Algiers neighborhood began running in 1827. It docked not at the foot of Canal Street, but at Jackson Square. — KEVIN ALLMAN

“We think Nell and her column are an important part of the civic and cultural life of the community, and she and we believe New Orleans should have a daily newspaper,” Advocate editor Peter Kovacs told Gambit. As for when readers could expect to see Nolan’s alliterative prose back in print, Kovacs said he had no timetable. Hitting the social circuit for The T-P will be party-loving Sue Strachan, currently PR director for the Ogden Museum of Southern Art and former editor of the society gloss mag St. Charles Avenue. In other news, T-P business reporter Richard Thompson was the latest defection to The Advocate, where he’ll be covering news from the River Parishes, while the T-P hired Todd Price — the paper’s longtime stringer and former Gambit food critic — who had been covering the city’s drinks scene (he’ll be writing about food). — KEVIN ALLMAN

Garden of evil A spate of robberies in the Garden District includes muggings, carjackings and a home invasion — and they’ve taken place at all times of the day and night. By Robert Morris | Uptown Messenger


A 60-year-old man was robbed at gunpoint at the edge of the Garden District July 18, making a total of 11 robberies in the area in 11 days. With the exception of a trio of attacks by bat-wielding teens, most of the cases do not show clear links to one another, New Orleans police officials said last week. Significant evidence, such as photos or DNA, has been recovered in most of the cases, however, so the investigations all are considered active. In one case, a visitor was in the 1200 block of Harmony Street (near Camp Street) about 9:40 a.m., when she noticed a dark-colored sedan nearby, Sgt. Daniel Scanlan said during the weekly meeting of the 6th District leadership. The driver of the sedan got out, pointed a gun at her and demanded her purse, then got back into the car and drove off, Scanlan said. A witness described the car as a new black Kia with a temporary license tag in the window and a Ray Brandt dealer plate in the license plate holder — a description so specific it should prove a promising lead, Scanlan said. That robbery came on the heels of a rash of other muggings, carjackings and a home invasion in the Garden District and Lower Garden District areas that 6th District detectives are investigating as well: • A woman was robbed at gunpoint by a man just before 3 a.m. July 7 at Annunciation and Thalia streets. • A man who parked near Clio and Carondelet streets around 9 p.m. July 8 was attacked by two men who punched him and stole his keys and his white Ford Focus. The car was found later on Calais Street in eastern New Orleans, Scanlan said, and several items found inside the vehicle are being tested DNA. That case may have be linked to a similar carjacking about a month earlier, Lt. Frank Young said at the 6th District meeting. Both vehicles were found in the same area, he said, and investigators are waiting to see if the DNA is a match. • A man walking in the 2500 block of Magazine Street around 11:15 p.m. July 8 was robbed by two men, one of whom hit him in the head with a gun before fleeing with his partner in a silver vehicle. Scanlan said detectives have obtained video of the suspects and have received information about the case, so they expect to identify the suspects soon. • Three robberies on Clio, Camp and Coliseum streets were committed around 11 p.m. July 10 by three people wielding a baseball bat. In one case the suspects allegedly beat their victim so severely he had to be hospitalized. One of the suspects, Keith Williams, was chased by a witness, caught by police and identified in connection with all three incidents, police said. Surveillance video in the area showed a second suspect with Williams just before the arrest. Williams also is suspected in several other robberies of iPhones by “brute force” in the French Quarter and eastern New Orleans, Young said, and investigators are examining possible accomplices in those cases to determine who might have been with Williams the night of the Lower Garden District spree. • On July 12, a 23-year-old woman walking home from work late at night in the 1600 block of Terpsichore Street was confronted by a man with a knife who demanded her purse. She was cut several times by the knife as the two struggles. Video was obtained in the case, and images were released of a black man in his late twenties or early thirties, about 5-foot-8 and 170 pounds. He is considered armed and dangerous, police officials said. • Around 4:30 a.m. July 14, a 29-year-old man in the back parking

ALEKSANDR ZYKOV / WIKIMEDIA COMMONS • Earlier the same night, about 2 a.m., a man was walking along Tchoupitoulas Street on his way home from the Warehouse District when a white Lincoln Navigator pulled up alongside him, Young said. From a rear window, a man asked where he was going, then got out with a gun, poked him with the weapon and ordered him into the car, Young said. A woman drove the SUV while the gunman and another man went through the victim’s pockets. They pushed him out of the vehicle shortly afterward, Young said. The robbery was not reported until two days later, Young said. Detectives have identified several locations along the route the SUV took that may have video, he said. • In the July 18 case, the victim was at the corner of Eighth and Carondelet street around 12:30 p.m. when he was approached by a man with a black handgun who took his belongings and fled, according to the initial report. The robberies come after a lull of several months. Over the last year, the entire 6th District has averaged only one armed robbery per week, crime statistics show. At the half-year point, the district was down 62 percent in armed robberies over the same period in 2012. “This is so far out of our character,” 6th District Commander Bob Bardy said of the robberies. While the investigative leads represent the most direct avenue to stopping robberies, Bardy instructed his lieutenants to examine their patrol officers’ activity. Vehicle stops and arrests in the district were down significantly over the same period, which, Bardy said, makes no sense when crime is happening. Bardy also noted that 15 people have been identified are wanted on warrants for various property crimes, and he instructed his task force to find and arrest those people. So far this year, the district has seen 31 robberies, still down about 45 percent from the 57 recorded by this point last year. — This story was reported with our partners at Uptown Messenger.

Board games


hose who moved to New Orleans in recent years might be forgiven for not knowing the history of the Orleans Parish School Board (OPSB), historically the most dysfunctional agency in a famously dysfunctional city. The board has gone through several superintendents and board presidents, perhaps the most notorious of whom was Ellenese Brooks-Simms, who was sentenced to 18 months in federal prison for accepting bribes from convicted felon Mose Jefferson, who was peddling a math software program he wanted the OPSB to buy. Then there was the curious case of a 70-year-old OPSB janitor named Alphonse Davis Sr., who racked up $156,823 in salary and overtime between July 1999 and December 2001 — more than $70,000 in one year alone, which also was more than OPSB principals earned. The fact that Davis’ son Alphonse Davis Jr. became Orleans Parish public schools superintendent in July 1999 was just a coincidence and had nothing to do with his father’s handsome compensation — or so the younger Davis told investigators. After Hurricane Katrina and the federal levee failures, the new Recovery School District (RSD) took over operations of


most public schools in New Orleans, and for good reason. They were academically abysmal as well as terribly run. A reformtouting faction came into office on the OPSB shortly thereafter and attempted to get the now-state-run public schools back under local control. That group saw some successes. They improved the board’s finances and bond rating, showed academic improvement in many quarters and instituted a much-needed anti-bullying policy. Members of that board hoped to see RSD schools returning to OPSB control this year, but several of them lost their bids for re-election last year. Based on the quarrelsome antics at last week’s OPSB meeting, the prospects for returning state-run public schools to local control appear dimmer than ever. The new board, though in office less than a year, already has a lot of housecleaning to do. As previous boards did before the postKatrina reform years, the present school board has split into factions defined largely by race, filtered through the lens of the board’s support (or lack thereof) of interim Superintendent Stan Smith. Smith, who is white, has held the position for more than a year. He earned the job by shepherding the previous board to

fiscal stability, a feat apparently not appreciated by the new board. At last week’s meeting, some current board members wanted Smith fired outright, while others wanted an up-or-down vote on his contract. Neither happened. Three of the African-American members of the board — Ira Thomas, Leslie Ellison and Cynthia Cade — clearly want Smith gone. The three white board members — Sarah Usdin, Seth Bloom and Woody Koppel — want to keep Smith until a national search produces his permanent replacement. The seventh member of the board, Nolan Marshall Jr. (who is African-American), has taken on the role of mediator. Much of last week’s contretemps stemmed from perceived unfairness in the board’s award of contracts to minorityowned companies. That’s a laudable goal, but fighting over contracts, rather than education, is why the OPSB has been a sinkhole of dysfunction. More distraction occurred over an antibullying policy adopted by the previous board. The policy applies to the five OPSB “direct-run” schools, not local charter schools. Ellison, who opposed a legislative proposal to add sexual-orientation protections to existing state non-discrimination

policies while she served on a charter school board, led a charge to eliminate similar language in the OPSB anti-bullying policy. When asked about the separation of church and state, Ellison — who has made it clear her views stem from her faith — said bluntly, “There is no such thing.” (Though not expressly part of the U.S. Constitution, the concept dates to the Founding Fathers and is a foundation stone of constitutional law.) Last week’s meeting lasted five hours. Little if anything was accomplished. This is nothing new. In the nearly seven months the present board has held office, it has yet to select a company to lead the search to replace Smith. You’d never know this from the OPSB website, however; the board’s online minutes haven’t been updated at all in 2013. If that’s not enough to make parents and taxpayers lose all faith in this board, we suggest they check out the board’s website, which states: “The Orleans Parish School Board sets Policy for the the education if the children entrusted to us for their education as well as Board and District Operations.” That’s not a series of typos. That’s the board’s policy statement, verbatim. We rest our case.

Polite has the chops ow that both of Louisiana’s U.S. senators have signed “blue slips” backing the nomination of Kenneth Polite to be southeast Louisiana’s next U.S. attorney, all that remains for him to be confirmed is the scheduling of hearings by the Senate Judiciary Committee and a perfunctory vote by the full Senate. If only things were that simple. Senate politics are more complicated than ever in Washington, D.C.’s highly partisan environment. Senators only recently settled (for now) a potential war over changing the rules that govern filibusters. That resolution cleared the way for confirmation of several of President Barack Obama’s high-level nominees, including Gina McCarthy as head of the Environmental Protection Agency. Polite is way down the political food chain compared to McCarthy and others whose confirmations hung in the balance of last week’s compromise. But these days it doesn’t take much to tank someone’s career trajectory — no matter how deserving of the job or promotion that person may be — when senators dig in their heels on some larger but unrelated issue.

That’s a shame, because the Eastern District of Louisiana needs a permanent replacement for former U.S. Attorney Jim Letten. Interim U.S. Attorney Dana Boente, who is on loan from the Eastern District of Virginia, has done a fine job of stabilizing the office and getting prosecutors (and the public) refocused on the job of putting crooks and drug dealers in jail — and not anonymously commenting online about ongoing cases or local scandals. Meanwhile, special prosecutor John Horn, similarly on loan from the Northern District of Georgia, has yet to conclude (as far as the public can tell) his investigation into leaks and the online posting scandal that brought down Letten and his three top lieutenants. In some cosmically karmic way, it may benefit Polite that his nomination hasn’t been rushed through. Letten’s sudden departure left a lot of housecleaning to be done; Boente and Horn are doing it. By wrapping up some potentially messy cases such as River Birch, Danziger, Nagin and others, Boente and Horn can clear the decks, so to speak, for Polite to come in and make a fresh start. That process

The Eastern District of Louisiana needs a permanent replacement to former U.S. Attorney Jim Letten. may involve some additional resignations, depending on what Horn finds and reports. Meanwhile, inside the Beltway, all eyes are on the Judiciary Committee. Polite has bipartisan support (including endorsements from GOP financier Boysie Bollinger and Jefferson Parish Sheriff Newell Normand). Vitter’s signature on the blue slip for his fellow De La Salle alum clears the way for Polite’s confirmation, providing larger Senate politics don’t get in the way. A former prosecutor in the busy southern district of New York (a plum Justice

So Long, Hank — New Orleans lost one of its great political minds and personalities last week when former state Sen. Henry “Hank” Braden IV died of congestive heart failure. He was 68. I knew Hank well and cherished him as a friend. Whether in the marbled halls of the state Capitol, a quiet wing of City Hall or at his favorite table at Ruth’s Chris Steak House, he always added keen insights, great anecdotes and marvelous historical perspective to any political discussion. Politics was Braden’s passion. He brought his hallmark zeal as well as a razorsharp wit to every political task. He could wax philosophic one minute and dissect a problem or a campaign with uncanny bluntness the next. He mentored countless aspiring politicians and advised as many more once in office, including former Mayor Sidney Barthelemy. Above all, Hank understood that the essence of politics is people, and the most important attribute a person can bring to the game is loyalty. He will be missed.

BY IAN McNULTY A surge in

neighborhood bakeries around New Orleans signals a revival for local baking traditions — in more ways than one. “It will be a great day for America, incidentally, when we begin to eat bread again, instead of the blasphemous and tasteless foam rubber that we have substituted for it.” — James Baldwin, The Fire Next Time

racious Bakery + Cafe opened last September on the ground floor of the Woodward Design + Build headquarters, right below the office of Rob Norton, the construction company’s marketing manager. He visits the bakery all the time, whether for a quick sandwich, a business meeting over coffee and croissants or a baguette for his family’s dinner. There’s only one problem. “It’s the toll it takes on your willpower,” Norton says. “I just thank God they close at 3 o’clock. If they were open at the end of the day, when you’re just spent and can’t resist, I’d be eating opera cake every afternoon.” So goes the tradeoff of access and indulgence when a bakery opens nearby, as many other New Orleanians are learning. The city is seeing a surge in small, independent bakeries, which has landed new outlets for fresh bread and pastries all across town. Four have come along in the last 12 months alone, and more than a dozen new bakeries have opened since 2007 (see “A Fresh Batch,” p. 22). This new batch of bakeries is highly varied in style and scale. Some, like Gracious, double as cafes with breakfast and lunch menus, while others are small-production bakeries supplying farmers markets, restaurants and retail shops. Still others blend retail and wholesale operations, sending bread out the door both in customers’ hands and in delivery vans. And more are on the way. Laurel Street Bakery, an Uptown fixture since 2004, plans to open a second retail bakery next month as part of a cluster of redeveloped commercial properties in Broadmoor.

says, “What is happening now could be seen as offering a glimpse into what once characterized neighborhood bakeries in the city.” Proprietors of these new bakeries cite different, and sometimes personal, reasons for getting into the business. Cara Benson, a culinary school grad and pastry chef, wanted to be her own boss, so she opened the cottagesized bakery Tartine on an Uptown side street in 2010. The availability of a particular Magazine Street storefront convinced baker and farmers market vendor Lisa Barbato and her husband, chef Chris Barbato, to take the plunge

last spring and open a long-planned bake shop and cafe named Rivista. And Jose Castillo opened Norma’s Sweets Bakery in 2011 as a Mid-City expansion of the Latin American bakery his mother started 10 years ago in Kenner; Castillo says demand for their Cuban bread and Mexican pan dulce pastries has skyrocketed as the city’s Hispanic population has grown. The proliferation of these new bakeries also dovetails with the broader trend of consumer interest in transparent, small-scale and traditional food production. “A resurgence is happening,” says Solveig Tofte, a Minneapolis baker who keeps tabs on the industry nationally in her role as a board member of the Bread Bakers Guild PAGE 21


on quick-serve bagels and sandwiches along with an array of pastries and breads. The year-old Breads on Oak is looking for a second location, says baker and co-owner Sean O’Mahony, and Maple Street Patisserie, originally opened in 2010, is eyeing an expansion with another retail outlet, confirms co-owner Patricia Ann Donohue. It’s adding up to a boom time for great baked goods around the city, from baguettes to bagels to cinnamon buns. It also augurs a reversal of fortunes for a once-thriving niche of the city’s culinary heritage that appeared to be on the ropes just a few years ago.

of America. “People want that connection and knowledge about the provenance of their food. “Bakeries lend themselves to this. It’s the hearth, the focal point. I know for some customers a bakery is just a place to get a cookie and coffee, but I’d like to think there’s something hardwired in us to gravitate to this.” While small bakeries have been making a comeback around the country, Tofte was surprised to learn about the scale and speed of growth in New Orleans. She suggested the trend here may be outpacing other cities, given the size of the New Orleans market. Some locals agree. “I’m shocked at how many are opening now,” says Dana Logsdon, who ran the Faubourg Marigny bakery La Spiga from 1996 to 2007 and now is a baker for Angelo Brocato Ice Cream and Confectionery. “Baking sounds glamorous, but it’s a really hard job. It’s labor-intensive and the margins are thin. You don’t make much money from it.”

Logsdon is an authority on the city’s baking history and traditions. As an example of how widespread the neighborhood bakery once was in New Orleans, she points to a city directory from 1906 listing 138 bakeries. “And the city had a much smaller footprint back then, so you can only imagine the density,” she says. “These neighborhoods were filled with small bakeries, but they almost all faded away.” Shopping habits changed with the post-war rise of suburbs and supermarkets, while baking itself changed with mechanization and a turn toward preservative-laden dough. These were all interconnected reasons for a decline nationally in the craft of baking. In New Orleans, Mizell-Nelson says, “By the late 1950s, master bakers in what once was known as the po-boy belt in downtown New Orleans were alarmed about the need to add preservatives and consider things such as shelf-life beyond one day.”

By 1970, the late restaurant critic Richard H. Collin counted “about a dozen leading French bread makers” around New Orleans. But by the eve of Hurricane Katrina, the city’s traditional bread suppliers had been whittled down to just a handful. United Bakery, perhaps the most prominent New Orleans maker of Italian bread, especially muffuletta loaves, did not reopen after its facility on St. Bernard Avenue was flooded from the levee failures. But the historic Leidenheimer Baking Company in Central City, John Gendusa Bakery in Gentilly and Alois J. Binder Bakery in Faubourg Marigny all persevered. They’re joined by traditional French bakeries La Boulangerie and Croissant d’Or, the city’s crop of king cake specialists and a clutch of Vietnamese bakeries, notably Dong Phuong Oriental Bakery, Hi-Do Bakery and Chez Pierre Bakery, as stalwarts of the pre-Katrina baking scene. The type of loaf regarded as tradition-


al New Orleans French bread — with thin, brittle crust encasing a light, airy inner crumb — is indispensible to the local table and contributes mightily to the essential character of po-boys. Poboy loaves also are much different than baguettes or other customary bread styles of France. Mizell-Nelson says the distinctive local style evolved here as German and Austrian immigrants began to dominate local baking in the mid-19th century. (Mizell-Nelson, who is teaching this year in Innsbruck, Austria, says the local semmel bread there is just like New Orleans French bread.) But these loaves were by no means the only breads produced in the heyday of New Orleans baking, and a revival of the diversity and the artisanal approach that was once the norm across the city is now on display at some of the newest bakeries to emerge. From an unmarked storefront in Broadmoor, in a rundown strip mall that was once home to a boiled seafood PAGE 24

market, Graison Gill works with the solitude and singlemindedness of a monk as he bakes distinctive, dark-crusted loaves and baguettes for his new Bellegarde brand. A Los Angeles native, Gill got his start in baking in New Orleans just a few years ago, initially from a shared commercial kitchen. Earlier this year, he opened Bellegarde, taking his business name from deep in the annals of New Orleans history. Bellegarde was the alias used by a baker named Francois Lemesle, who opened what may have been the city’s first bakery in the 1720s. Bellegarde breads are intensely flavorful, with some carrying a distinctive tang under a dense, very dark crust. Gill regards his work as “retro-innovation,” explaining his desire to move the standards of baking forward by rooting them in the past. “You look back at what was here before, and it was something rich,” Gill says. “This is a city with a culinary heritage and baking tradition. So what

I’m working on now, it’s not an arbitrary desire of mine — it’s tangible, it has roots here.” At Breads on Oak, O’Mahony and his crew produce round, medievallooking miche loaves the size of steering wheels, elaborately finished with decorative patterns carved into their thick crusts. Breads on Oak’s baguettes seem to burst with crisp ripples and its croissants pull apart into buttery, spiraling webs of layered dough. These are the beautiful, instantly gratifying end results of a baking approach that’s both arduous and risky. “Starting a bakery like this isn’t like opening a franchise and following a template,” O’Mahony says. “Bakeries like this went just about extinct, so it was like resurrecting a dinosaur. And there’s a reason they went extinct, a capitalist reason. “You’re gambling that everything you make for the morning will sell, and it has to sell that day. At a restaurant, you buy ingredients and you might have a few

days or even weeks to use them. But this is worse than day trading. You’re putting out everything in the morning and hoping that people show up.” And people show up. Expatriate Europeans who recognized the baking style were his first regulars, O’Mahony says, and a liberal sampling policy at the service counter has helped convert New Orleans natives who may have come in looking for po-boy loaves. “Samples are everything. We have to take a little more time with new customers, show them what these breads are like,” he says. “Americans lost their palate for bread generations ago, but I think somewhere deep we all know what this is supposed to be when we taste it.” Guttman, at Laurel Street Bakery, says that by offering daily staples, like bread, and small indulgences, like pastries, bakeries are easy places for people to reconnect with traditionally made foods. “It can be surprising to people, to eat

pastry or breads that don’t make you feel rundown after — they’re surprised that it has flavor, that it’s not a Twinkie, and that just shows the need that’s here still,” she says. “We need more people making and serving simple, nonprocessed foods.” As bakeries open and expand, their proprietors are training more new talent and passing on the skills of their craft. (Bakers interviewed for this story say prospective employees rarely have baking experience.) There may be new opportunities to promote baking as well. Logsdon hopes to resurrect the Master Bakers’ Association, a local professional group dating to 1892 that once flourished in New Orleans. “My hope is that, working together, we could get some community baking programs started, have community ovens, offer intergenerational courses, increase education and access to this,” Logsdon says. “There’s so much momentum building now in the city. It’s really exciting.”

barbecue sauces. The open-air bar and restaurant has live music Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays and events like zydeco dance lessons and crawfish boils on Sundays. Guests say the staff is neighborly and jolly. While the park attracts mostly people in the film industry and horse racing, Schneck is targeting vacationers and locals. In August, Schneck, Bock and Gaarder will install shops geared toward boaters as well as upscale RV sites and villas. Pontchartrain Landing also is in close proximity to all New Orleans’ attractions. “We’re unique in that we are only 12 minutes away from the French Quarter,” Grace says. Shuttles take guests from the park to Bourbon Street in the French Quarter or Harrah’s New Orleans on Canal Street. “We take people to what New Orleans has to offer, then go pick them up when they’re done,” Schneck says. “People can come and relax and have a good time. Unlike [at] a hotel, parents can let their kids loose. There’s no drama.”

JUDY AT THE RINK (The Rink, 2727 Pry-


n 1994, Capt. Scott Schenck found treasure. He’d sailed from Europe to New Orleans to pick up then-Gov. Edwin Edwards from the Southern Yacht Club, but when he arrived, the railroad bridge was up and he couldn’t enter the lake. “While I waited for the gates to open, I found all this land on Lake Pontchartrain that wasn’t being utilized,” Schenck says. “I stared at it for four hours. … Where I’m from, Florida and North Carolina, finding waterfront property is like finding gold.” Once Schenck entered Lake Pontchartrain, he faced another problem: His yacht was too large for the shallow marina at the Southern Yacht Club. “When I met Gov. Edwards, he asked me, ‘Son, what do you think New Orleans needs?’ I said we needed a deepwater marina, and he said, ‘Well then, why don’t you build us one?’” Schenck says. In 2007, Schenck took the former governor’s advice. Along with partners Leigh Bock and Nate Gaarder, the retired sea captain converted the 32acre waterfront property to an RV trailer park with a deepwater marina. However, Pontchartrain Landing RV Park and Marina (6001 France Road, 504286-8157; www. pontchartrainlanding. com) is not your typical RV park. Staffers say it’s an RV resort. “We have a lot to offer: a lighthouse bar and restaurant, live music, fishing trips, a swimming pool and a hot tub, and floating villas for rent,” says sales manager Sandy Grace.

Jaeger masters

In New Orleans, the name Jaeger has been associated with seafood for generations, though a pair of new ventures from a member of this local restaurant family put burgers front and center. In late spring, Andrew Jaeger opened Jaeger Burger Co. (872 Harrison Ave., 504-482-1441), a small burger joint in the middle of Lakeview’s commercial corridor. More recently, he added Bucktown Burger & Fish Co. (200 Old Hammond Hwy., Metairie, 504-840-0902), which expands the concept with a much larger menu and a different setting. Bucktown Burger & Fish Co. took over the lakefront restaurant space previously occupied by Live Bait. The menu includes fried seafood, fish tacos, burgers and specialties like oysters bordelaise, which here

hen a paper towel roll is provided at a seafood boil, you know you have a practical host. When you find the same roll on the table at a po-boy joint, you know you need to order the roast beef. That tipoff is a little redundant at Bear’s Po-boys. This restaurant name has long been synonymous with dripping, overstuffed roast beef po-boys thanks to a string of related but independently run locations on the Northshore. In 2010, a branch quietly opened in Metairie, taking over the attached dining room at Gennaro’s, a neon-trimmed, Depression-era barroom practically underneath the Causeway Boulevard overpass. The beef is cut thin, carrying a little onion flavor, a bit of pepper and a full meaty taste that sounds elementary but cannot always be taken for granted. It’s awash with something like debris jus — wet, salty and full of tiny bits of beef — and a lavish quantity of mayo. The crackly-crusted Leidenheimer loaf does its best to hold the juicy mess, but diners will be glad those paper towels are at hand. Bear’s debris is available on more than the po-boys. It goes over cheese fries and it’s layered on a specialty burger, acting less as a topping and more as an equal partner to the patty. The burger list provides the other compelling reason to visit this Bear’s. These sturdy burgers come in all kinds of double-barrel

combinations, from hot sausage and grilled onions to bacon and peanut butter (a strangely apt burger topping) to fried jalapeno rings and a dose of spicy, sweet, hickory-tinged barbecue sauce. The array of add-ons and sides invites many departures from po-boy shop standards. Blue cheese on your oyster po-boy? That’s an easy request to fulfill. Fried jalapenos and a teacup-size side order of debris can transform just about anything, and when dumped on a basket of burly, ruffle-cut potato chips (called “Bear chips”) they essentially create roast beef potato nachos. The undersized, overly greasy fried shrimp I tried were beyond redemption, however, and the salads make for just as utilitarian a meal as someone who orders salad at a po-boy joint deserves. There’s only one dessert, but it’s a keeper: white chocolate bread pudding made from yesterday’s po-boy loaves. Bear’s is packed at lunchtime and slower in the evenings, but service is consistently attentive, welcoming and genuine. Bear’s serves in the barroom too, in case you prefer your roast beef with a haze of Marlboro smoke and a game of eight-ball. The restaurant is family-friendly, and there’s a children’s menu with chicken tenders and such, which makes me wonder at what age New Orleans kids are entrusted with their own roast beef po-boy. They might make a mess of it, but at Bear’s they surely won’t be the only ones.

2012 Barton & Guestier Cotes de Provence Passeport Rose PROVENCE, FRANCE $9-$15 RETAIL

France’s largest wine appellation, the Cotes de Provence region, comprises 50,000 acres of noncontiguous vineyards spread over hillsides and coastal ranges, primarily planted to produce rose wine. With sunny days and cool evenings, the Mediterranean climate encourages slow ripening of grapes. A blend of 50 percent grenache, 30 percent cinsault and 20 percent syrah, this wine was aged on its lees at low temperatures for two months before bottling. In the glass, it offers aromas of fresh flowers, citrus, pear and white peach. On the palate, taste strawberry, cherry and raspberry with mineral and spice notes. Drink it at a barbecue with grilled meats, coleslaw, deviled eggs and potato salad or with pate, smoked salmon, cake, pastries, Asian dishes, fish, crabmeat, shrimp, scallops and lobster. Buy it at: Rouses on North Carrollton Avenue, Dorignac’s and Acquistapace’s Covington Supermarket.

interview are fried and stuffed into a bread bowl doused with garlic and oil. Bucktown Burger & Fish Co. retains Live Bait’s beach shack look, with nautical decor across the bar, dining room and covered front patio. The restaurant’s view is mainly of the levee and pumping station across the street, but visitors can hike to the top of the levee to see the small fishing harbor on the other side. The restaurant also hosts live music. In Lakeview, Jaeger Burger Co. is a tiny operation with counter service and a short menu of burgers and sandwiches (including a grilled fish sandwich and chilled shrimp salad), and a few sides, such as poutine-style cheese fries.

Pizza Delicious tests brunch

Many Sunday mornings have been salvaged with a slice of pizza resurrected from Saturday night’s leftovers, so it seems fitting that a local pizzeria is testing the waters for brunch service. Pizza Delicious (617 Piety St., 504676-8482; is experimenting with a trial-run brunch through Sunday, July 28. If it proves popular, co-owner Michael Friedman says it may become a regular Sunday fixture. The brunch menu is short but eclectic: stone fruit salad, poached drum and farro salad, “Sugerman’s NY bagel plate” with lox and fixings, and a breakfast pizza topped with sliced new potatoes, cheddar cheese, cherry tomatoes and sunny side up eggs. The restaurant’s normal menu of New York-style pizzas also is available. Brunch is served from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.



CHEF AND CO-OWNER, TOUPS’ MEATERY Raised in the small Acadiana town of Rayne, La., Isaac Toups started his culinary career in New Orleans at Emeril Lagasse’s restaurants. In 2012, he and wife Amanda, a local wine professional, opened Toups’ Meatery (845 N. Carrollton Ave., 504-252-4999;, a casual restaurant serving Toups’ rendition of modern Cajun cooking. On Tuesday, he’ll present a meal in New York City at City Grit (, which hosts chefs from across the country for one-night guest appearances. Why did you switch from fine dining to a more casual approach? Toups: I loved what we did with food in fine dining — the attention to detail, the farm-to-table sourcing — but it was the fussiness I wanted to get away from. The staff wearing ties, the plate presentations. I want it to be like, here’s the food, come in wearing shorts if you want and let’s eat. I think that’s why we’ve become a neighborhood spot. We get a lot of customers from the blocks right around us. Early in the evening there might be kids running around here. Heck, sometimes they’re my kids. How have things gone in your first year as a chef/owner? T: The chef part I felt like I had down. Now no one tells me what to cook, except Amanda, and she’s my muse anyway. But the owner part? I guess you just have to get open, screw up, don’t screw up the same way again and make it work. There’s a burden of responsibility now, but it’s still the best decision we’ve ever made. You’re always going to be busting ass working hard in this business and now we’re working hard for us. How did growing up in Cajun country influence your culinary career? T: I was extremely lucky growing up: Everybody in my family cooked. We were always outside boiling something, grilling something. Dad would smoke the ducks we shot. We’d make squirrel brain sauce piquante. There isn’t a lot of meat on a squirrel, so you have to throw in the whole thing, and a lot of them, to really have a stew. The brains have the most fat, the most flavor. You want to talk about using everything? Squirrel brain sauce piquante. I thought everyone grew up like this. — IAN MCNULTY

Two pairs of Slippers


Another Ruby Slipper Cafe (139 S. Cortez St., 504-309-5531; 200 Magazine St., 504-525-9355; 2001 Burgundy St., 504-525-9355; www.therubyslippercafe. net) is in the works at 1005 Canal St., where co-owner Erich Weishaupt says he plans to begin serving the restaurant’s breakfast, lunch and brunch menus before the end of the year. This Canal Street expansion will mark the fourth location for the Ruby Slipper, which Weishaupt and wife Jennifer started in 2008 by converting what had been a rundown corner store into a Mid-City hot spot. They opened a CBD location in 2010 and late last year opened their third Ruby Slipper inside a renovated historic bank building in the Faubourg Marigny. “We didn’t intend to grow this fast; we’re about two years ahead of what we thought we’d do, but the opportunity was right,” Weishaupt says. “So much is happening on this stretch of Canal, we thought we should get ourselves established there.” All of the Ruby Slipper locations serve similar menus of diner-style breakfast and lunch dishes punched up with local seafood, fresh produce and creative specials. Weishaupt says the Canal Street location will function as a commissary kitchen

producing some of the baked goods, sauces and other staples used across the four restaurants. The new restaurant space is five blocks from the Ruby Slipper location on Camp Street. But Weishaupt believes a second location will draw people staying at different hotels and perhaps alleviate some pressure from the busy Magazine Street restaurant at peak hours. The Canal Street building has been home to a string of short-lived restaurants, but its history goes back much farther. This address was part of the national McCrory’s department store chain, and in 1960 a group of civil rights activists staged a sit-in at the store’s segregated lunch counter. They were arrested, and their case eventually went before the U.S. Supreme Court, which overturned the convictions against them. Weishaupt says remodeling work for the restaurant will accentuate the building’s Art Deco features, terrazzo floor and some structural elements they’re now uncovering from past renovations.

Regional dinners

While prix fixe menus and other special deals proliferate at local restaurants in the

summer, some also stage dinner series that dial in the cooking of specific food regions around the globe. The format gives chefs a chance to explore particular cuisines. Two in particular have become annual traditions. For more than a dozen summers, Vega Tapas Cafe (2051 Metairie Road, Metairie, 504-836-2007; www.vegatapascafe. com) has produced its Mediterranean series, featuring a different country’s cuisine each week on a special menu available Monday through Saturday. This week, the tour hits Egypt (through July 28) and subsequent menus feature Turkey, Greece, Italy, France and Spain. Each menu includes five to eight small plates and costs $27 and optional wine pairing is an additional $15. In the Warehouse District, Adolfo Garcia’s restaurant a Mano (870 Tchoupitoulas St., 504-208-9280; www. focuses on specific regions of central and southern Italy for special menus served on Wednesday nights only. The Calabria region is featured Wednesday, July 24, and the series will include Sicily, Campania, Sardinia and Tuscany. These regional menus are served through Aug. 21, and each multicourse meal costs $35.

Trends, notes, quirks and quotes from the world of food.

“Announce your tipping practice to your server as soon as you sit down. Virtually every other employee in America knows how much they’ll be paid up front, and somehow the man who sells me shoes and the woman who does my dry cleaning still manage to provide adequate service. I have no doubt waiters and waitresses are the same.” — Brian Palmer, “chief explainer” columnist for, in an op-ed arguing for the end of restaurant tipping, calling it a “repugnant custom” that’s “bad for consumers and terrible for workers.”

Thank you for voting me the #1 Realtor in New Orleans the last two years in a row! The local market has been in flux this past year & buying a property has been far more difficult. Selling a property in an historic neighborhood takes a certain skill-set. It is imperative you work with a knowledgeable & experienced Realtor who can help guide you. A Realtor is a member of the National Association of Realtors (NAR) & abides by a strict code of ethics & a higher level of educational standards in the industry. • In May 2013 Katie received “The Rising Star Award’’ from the local Realtor Board. The award is given annually to a Realtor who demonstrates excellence and leadership in the industry. • Katie was a speaker and also honored at The Women Council of Realtors June Luncheon as a Top Producer.

Thank you for keeping Katie in mind with your real estate decisions.

Small opera companies expose young performers to new audiences. By Will Coviello


the year. He provided the company some financial support for the first show, and together, they presented The Liebeslieder Project in December 2012 and a pair of oneact operas in April. Marigny Opera House has become a home for opera, dance, New Orleans Fringe Festival shows, puppetry and more. The new opera company New Fangled Opera presented a series of new operatic works at UNO in June. It will present a series of one-acts at Marigny Opera House in June 2014. Part of its mission is to present works by contemporary composers. More than 100 projects were submitted for inclusion in the program, and productions included singers from Philadelphia and Kansas. The scarcity of roles for young opera singers compels many to invest in travelling to get exposure, New Fangled Opera cofounder Chris D. Burton says. Hurlbert has provided support and art grants via the Marigny Opera House foundation, and he’s continued to renovate and improve the space. He recently added heavy pleated curtains to the backstage and wings, which improved the converted church’s acoustics. While Marigny Opera House is a large space, the 9th Ward Opera’s shows are designed to avoid the costs of productions like those presented by the New Orleans Opera Association (NOOA) at the Mahalia Jackson Theater for the Performing Arts. Westfall uses piano accompaniment instead of a full orchestra, and costume and prop expenses are modest. But the smaller companies don’t see their productions as an alternative to full-scale productions, but rather a bridge to them. Givonna Joseph has performed in NOOA productions, including several shows last year, and she will appear in two in the upcoming season. She created Opera Creole in 2011 for two reasons: to expose more New Orleanians to opera and to educate audiences about African-Americans in classical music. “This music is all of our music, it’s not just music that was written by dead Italian men,” Joseph says

with a laugh. “It’s not alThe 9th Ward Opera presents Blue ways for people with white Monday at Marigny Opera House. hair. This is our music and PHOTO BY CHERYL GERBER we have all participated in it.

I think it puts a very positive mark on a person’s soul to know that this is part of their history.” Opera Creole performs work by everyone from 19th century New Orleans composer Edmond Dede to ragtime composer Scott Joplin. The company hasn’t done a full opera production, but Joseph’s approach is to seek audiences in unconventional spaces and expose them to opera. The company recently performed at the Musicians Village, at Cafe Istanbul on John Calhoun’s late-night talk show takeoff The Goodnight Show, and in April at French Quarter Festival and the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival. By finding new stages for opera singers, she’s helping restore classical music to the city’s diverse array of musical offerings.

hirteen years before George Gershwin’s opera Porgy and Bess debuted on Broadway (in 1935), his one-act jazz opera Blue Monday (Opera a la Afro-American) opened and promptly closed. It calls for an all African-American cast (the debut featured white actors in blackface), and it’s a remarkable if forgotten work. 9th Ward Opera Company founder and director Kathleen Westfall says it’s just right for her young company, and it’s part of a double bill opening at the Marigny Opera House Thursday. “Blue Monday is just so different, and nobody has done it,” Westfall says. “It’s funny because the composer is so well-known. You think Gershwin, you think An American in Paris, Rhapsody in Blue and Porgy and Bess. No one knows that he wrote this one-act opera 13 years before Porgy and Bess. It’s the very first piece of symphonic jazz ever composed.” Blue Monday is set in a Jazz Age Harlem bar where pianists entertain and patrons gamble in the back room. Vi is in love with Joe, a chronic gambler, and the piano player Tom tries to woo her away from him by planting suspicions about other women. “One of the very first lines is, ‘Like the white man’s opera, the theme will be love, hate, jealousy,” Westfall says. “It’s right in your face.” The work suits the 9th Ward Opera’s goals of exposing audiences to short, entertaining operatic works and providing young singers the chance to perform. She chooses works in which many characters have solos. Westfall teaches at the University of New Orleans (UNO), where she was first exposed to opera as a freshman in a music history class. She created the 9th Ward Opera last summer to present two one-act operas, Cox and Box and Trial By Jury. The show was scheduled to run at Marigny Opera House, but its lack of appropriate permits (since remedied) resulted in the program being moved to the AllWays Lounge and Theatre. The run was well-received, and Westfall committed to doing a 2013 performance of An Embarrassing Position, a one-act opera by Xavier University professor Dan Shore, who also created the new opera Freedom Ride. Westfall received a New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Foundation grant specifically to do Shore’s work, and it’s the second part of the double bill. Marigny Opera House founder Dave Hurlbert encouraged her to schedule performances throughout

“I want it all!” Jesse Matthewson demands on “The Promises of God,” the decibullied tipping point of KEN mode’s fifth album, Entrench (Season of Mist). If earthly accomplishments are any measure, his god seems to be listening. The Winnepeg hardcore band (named for Henry Rollins’ stagestalking “Kill Everyone Now mode”) won the inaugural Juno Award for Metal/Hard Music KEN mode Album of the Year with 2011’s Venerable, JUL 10 p.m. Sunday hammering Canada’s most venerable metalheads, Anvil. “Hard music” is a deceptively One Eyed Jacks, 615 complex descriptor for KEN mode, one Toulouse St., (504) best expressed in antonymy: Nothing about 569-8361; www. Entrench’s netherworldly descent is lazy or soft, but neither is it particularly difficult. Beneath the buckets of rage and contempt lies an impressive musical range — see how penultimate query “Why Don’t You Just Quit?” resolves a suicidal math problem with 30 seconds of rewarding post-rock, leading into shell-shocked closer “Monomyth,” which cribs both Tortoise and Faith No More — and behind these taunting songs lie messages meant not to deride, but to motivate. The staccato barrage of “Your Heartwarming Story Makes Me Sick” puts a glowing cattle prod to self-helping smugness, and “Figure Your Life Out” gradually swings out of control like an unweighted Chair-O-Plane. With life coaches like these, improvement isn’t an option, it’s an order. Inter Arma and Vibe Ruiner open. Tickets $15. — NOAH BONAPARTE PAIS

THRU Never argue with a serious music 7:30 p.m. Tue.-Thu. JUL collector about when the first true Zeitgeist Multi-Disciplinary rock ’n’ roll record arrived. Opinions on the subject are held with Arts Center, 1618 the sort of conviction normally reserved for Oretha Castle Haley Blvd., life-defining questions of politics, religion (504) 352-1150; and football. The fact that there’s no single correct answer to the question doesn’t matter a bit. But few bother to argue about the first punk rock record. And it’s not because the movement was incidental — all great rock ’n’ roll of any style from the last 35 years owes a debt to punk, if only because it hit the musical reset button on a global scale when it was needed most in the mid-1970s. New York City’s Ramones and London’s Sex Pistols debuted on record in 1976 and 1977 respectively, and in the blink of an eye punks were rocking everywhere from Austin, Texas to Akron, Ohio, to Manchester, England. But what if another band, called Death — consisting of three African-American brothers from Detroit, Mich. — actually recorded the first punk record in 1974 but few outside their neighborhood heard it at the time? That is the astonishing and true story told by director Jeff Howlett’s documentary A Band Called Death. As teenagers in the early ’70s, the Hackney brothers — David, Dannis and Bobby — launched their first band with the endearing and self-explanatory name Rock Fire Funk Express. Brooding and visionary singer/ guitarist David’s ideas began to change after witnessing performances by The Who and Alice Cooper. David insisted on calling the brothers’ new band Death even though it caused the music industry to reject them — Columbia Records mogul Clive Davis offered them a contract, but only if they agreed to change the name. David refused and the band sank into obscurity. The naming issue was just one example of David’s uncompromising, do-it-yourself ethos, which perfectly matched the band’s raw and aggressive sound. But as punk rockers, Death was two or three life-altering years ahead of its time. A Band Called Death’s first half is an unadulterated pleasure. Howlett blends the band’s recordings with vintage photos and video, plus new interviews with the surviving brothers, their compatriots and fans to bring Death back to life. The second half bogs down in sentiment and personal tragedy, but surprises lie in store. The film evolves into a moving study in the power of family and the value of sticking to your guns. Surprisingly, A Band Called Death leaves obvious questions unanswered. Were the brothers aware of the similarly inspired music that came along in their wake? And why were the brothers’ offspring, who wind up playing a central role in the full story of the band, never told about their parents little-known but undeniable early achievements? The answers probably lie among the rubble of dashed hopes and dreams deferred. Which only makes the late recognition represented by this film that much sweeter. — KEN KORMAN

Is rap the new performance art? Mega-rapper Jay-Z recently punctuated New York’s summer doldrums with his six-hour Pace Gallery Picasso Baby performance featuring art-world notables in conjunction with his new single and accompanying video of the same name. In a related vein, New Orleans native and ascendant New York artstar Rashaad Newsome has been merging high culture and street culture in a trajectory that included the 2010 Whitney Biennial, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and now NOMA, where his King of Arms sculptural collages appear downstairs. His Herald video performance appears upstairs amid historic French paintings including Vigee LeBrun’s court portrait of Marie Antoinette. Newsome’s prolific use of fleur-de-lis flourishes suggests he is either a Francophile or New Orleans Saints fan or both. What distinguishes him from other art-star bling freaks like Japan’s slyly hucksterish Takashi Murakami is his focus on old Europe’s medieval heraldry and baroque ornament, which he mashes up with rap’s all-American, all-consuming commodity fetish for flashy jewelry and even flashier women and cars. Rap’s obsession with tacky status symbols sets it apart from local African-American roots culture like second lines, spiritual churches and Zulu, as well as other social aid and pleasure clubs, but Newsome says his flair for performance was profoundly influenced by his formative years in New Orleans, where parades are frequent and baroque and medieval flourishes are pervasive. His collage sculpture Jungle Gardenia is as baroquely ornamental as a Faberge egg, with a complex composition of gold filigree, bejeweled flowers and ornamental motifs that, when viewed up close, are revealed as flashy car wheels and grinning lips parted to display gold teeth. Duke of Nola (pictured) is similar but features rapper Juvenile enshrined in a cornucopia of bling and tattooed limbs. In these works, Newsome has us compare the status symbols of rap with the entrenched elegance of the European courts that once colonized the world in an age when the baddest gangstas of all wore crowns and wielded scepters. — D.

Killer Joe wastes no time introducing us to the grisly, tawdry mess of a crass, barely working-class Texas family that’s imploding under the pressure of debt and desperation. Chris arrives at his father’s house in the middle of the night, and his stepmother Sharla answers the door partially naked. He’s in dire straits because his mother stole cocaine he needed to sell in order to pay off his drug debts. He wants to hire a hit man to kill her so the rest of the family can collect and share an insurance settlement, which works as a perverse financial planning/revenge scheme in this darkly humorous work at AllWays Lounge and Theatre. The entire play takes place in a joint kitchen/living room, a bleak space framed by cheap wood panKiller Joe eling in John Grimsley’s effective THRU set. It’s Ansel’s (Dane Rhodes) 8 p.m. Thu.-Sat. JUL house, where he lives with AllWays Lounge and Theatre, Sharla (Andrea Watson) and his daughter from his first marriage, 2240 St. Claude Ave., (504) Dottie (Lucy Faust), who seems naive and 218-5778, for tickets call reclusive or perhaps mentally challenged. (504) 758-5590; www.theallRhodes is brilliant and very comfortable in the skin of a working-class stiff who is very aware of his limitations and just smart enough to get by. Faust is excellent as the extremely childlike ingenue who somehow has managed to avoid the brunt of the malice surrounding her. Chris talks Ansel into hiring a hit man, but they immediately fail to keep their plan a secret from Dottie in a tipoff to how things will go. They enlist a policeman, Joe Cooper (James Howard Wright), to handle the job even though they can’t afford his price. Joe is entirely professional about moonlighting as a contract killer, and he’s far shrewder than his clients. Unfortunately, Wright doesn’t project the calm menace the role demands. His demeanor is too soft and, though he looks the part, he doesn’t show us the forceful personality of the man who takes over the family. Playwright Tracy Letts crafted a tight crime thriller that was adapted into a 2011 film of the same name (starring Matthew McConaughey as Joe). But the drama also is a dreary portrait of an American family in crisis. Ansel wears a grubby T-shirt with an American flag on it, and he almost always has a beer in his hand. A small TV often is on, blaring car races and cartoons. When things fall apart, it’s Joe who summons the group around the dinner table to break bread as a family (on a meal of fried chicken from a fast food chain). In a bizarre moment of calm, he asks who wants to say grace. Under Ben Clement’s direction, the cast delivers many haunting and comic moments. A fight scene in Act 2 goes too long and struggles to maintain a convincing sense of chaos. The almost cartoonish level of violence is startling at times and pushes the play to be more a pulpy crime thriller than a tragedy. The show is memorably gritty, often funny and the destruction the family brings upon itself gives the work a perverse sense of “traditional values” and an absurdly dark and ambiguous element of hope. — WILL COVIELLO

Dear New Orleans Job Guru, “I’m in college and undecided on my major. All I know is I’d like to stay in New Orleans. Since food is probably the biggest thing going here, maybe that is my best bet. I wonder what I could do (other than waiting tables) to get a job involving food?” — Butch P., New Orleans, LA Dear Butch, You’re absolutely right, Butch… New Orleans has been a food-centric hub since its first days. The confluence of Spanish, French, African, Caribbean, and Cajun influences have produced the finest cuisine in the nation and helped shape our economy here for hundreds of years. As just one example, the French Market, founded in 1791, Grant Cooper launched America’s tropical fruit industry. With our readily available seafood and fertile agricultural spoil, we are a natural as a food utopia, and when ice began to be manufactured in 1868, we were truly off to the races as a culinary capital of the U.S. Even Katrina couldn’t stop us. According to CBS News, “New Orleans had 809 restaurants the day before Katrina hit. There are 1,332 now -- this in a city that lost a quarter of its residents. At 53,000 jobs, the restaurant business is now the largest private employer in the city, generating $3.2 billion in sales in Orleans Parish last year.” We are fortunate that the food industry has so many jobs and opportunities here. To learn as much as you can about the possibilities, Butch, I suggest that you consider attending the 60th Annual Louisiana Foodservice & Hospitality EXPO, August 3-5, 2013, held downtown at the convention center (www.lra. org). The 2012 EXPO boasted 11,000 attendees and 500 booths. At the EXPO, you can meet the owners and managers of restaurants, bars, taverns & lounges, foodservice, hotels, casinos, caterers, grocery stores, equipment distributors, food manufacturers, and much more. Our local universities and community colleges offer degree and certification programs in Culinary Arts, Hospitality, Restaurant and Tourism, as well as business courses and other programs to prepare you for a future in the field of food. Whether it is restaurant management, food distributor sales, supermarket management, food manufacturing, catering, or equipment sales, there are good-paying jobs, including some that earn up to six figures after gaining considerable seniority and skills.

New Orleans Job Guru is New Orleans native Grant Cooper. President of Strategic Résumés®, Grant ranks within the top LinkedIn Résumé Writing Experts nationwide 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.

As I have advised in my columns over the years, you need to think “outside the box” to compete effectively in a demanding job market. Here are a few suggestions that may help you on your way: • As stated above, attend the Louisiana Foodservice & Hospitality Expo. You can definitely meet successful food industry leaders there and perhaps learn more about which sector of the industry that attracts you. • Go online and subscribe to food industry magazines. Most of the major employers advertise in these publications and you can learn a great deal from the articles. • I know you said you’re not interested in waiting tables, but an entry-level job in any part of the food industry is a “foot in the door.” Probably half of today’s food executives started out in a similar position. • Start or contribute to a food blog. As you become more knowledgeable in the subject, you will begin to find out who the decision-makers are and increase your visibility. Who knows, you could become a food author!
