Steve Gleason The Gambit interview


t was seven years ago this month that Steve Gleason achieved immortality among New Orleans Saints fans when he blocked a punt in the team’s first game in the Superdome following Hurricane Katrina. But it was two years ago this month that Gleason inspired people far beyond the gridiron when he revealed he is living with amytrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). On the eve of Gleason Gras, his annual event to raise awareness of ALS and support the Gleason Family Trust, and the Saints’ season opener, Gleason agreed to an email interview. He answered Gambit’s questions with the use of assistive technology that allows him to type using his eyes.

The St. Bernard Project

completed construction on its 500th home built after Hurricane Katrina and the levee failures on the eighth anniversary of the disaster, Aug. 29. Volunteers helped rebuild the home of John and Vanessa Ross. In 2006, Liz McCartney and Zack Rosenburg founded the organization, which rebuilds damaged homes and provides affordable housing.

Questions by Gambit staff writers Kevin Allman and Alex Woodward

Christine Wiltz

GAMBIT: You’ve been traveling a lot in the last few months. Where have you been, and what have your experiences been like?

: In June, you held the first Team Gleason Summit for the Cure. Tell us what that was, what it accomplished and what you hope it will accomplish in years to come. SG: During the Super Bowl here in New Orleans, we launched our new campaign, “Putting our heads together to find a cure for ALS.” Our hope in doing so was to bring all ALS stakeholders together, look at the roadblocks with new eyes and formulate a plan or strategy to end ALS. The recent Team Gleason Summit was the first step. For two days, scientists, clinicians, people living with ALS, their caretakers, advocates and associations came together to try and establish a roadmap for fast-tracking new treatments and a cure for ALS. [The summit was] webcast live to over 2,000 people in 15 countries. Attendees included representatives from Harvard University, Johns Hopkins University, Cedar Sinai Hospital, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Emory University, Massachusetts General Hospital and more than 50 other leading organizations. Three key areas were identified by the participants as being critical to rewriting the future of the disease in the short term. • 1. Establishing a national program to create biomarkers for ALS • 2. Collecting and deep-mining data in new ways to identify possible new avenues for treatment development

• 3. Reducing the cost and time In this Dec. 2012 for clinical trials that provide treatments from “bench to bedside.” photo, Steve Gleason These three areas fit into a demonstrates a larger list of 10 priorities that will be recumbent bike further developed over the coming given to him by the weeks into a collaborative action Ride 2 Recovery Gulf plan for a cure. Coast Challenge. Currently, Team Gleason is helpP H OTO BY ing people with ALS (pALS). We are A L E X W O O D WA RD providing technology to assist with communication, mobility and more independent living. I believe until there is a medical cure, technology is that cure. But by hosting the Summit, we hope to assure movement toward a medical cure or at least a single treatment for this disease.

Louisiana National Guard

confirmed Sept. 4 it will not recognize benefits for same-sex couples, despite a Pentagon policy issued Sept. 3 that requires the military to honor those benefits. In June, the U.S. Supreme Court struck down the federal Defense of Marriage Act and ruled that same-sex couples cannot be denied federal benefits given to other couples.

: People are already comparing the 2013 Saints to the 2006 team. Do you see the comparison? And since you got to announce the team’s third-round draft pick, what players do you think might stand out this year?

to prove this year. Let’s hope we block a punt Sunday. Then the comparisons will be ridiculous! I am hopeful we see some standouts on the defensive front seven and in the offensive running game.

SG: I am not sure the comparison is perfect because I think the overall talent is better on this team. Certainly we have something

G: You’ve talked about many of the heroic people with ALS whom you’ve met. Care to introduce PAGE 8

Has the price of parking, food, beer and other items discouraged you from going to a New Orleans Saints game this year?




A bit



THIS WEEK’S Question: Based on their preseason performance, how far do you think the New Orleans Saints can go this year?


STEVE GLEASON: We try to go back to the Northwest in the summers. It gets me out of this heat, and helps us see our Northwest friends and family. We were in Sandpoint, Idaho, which is about 90 minutes from Spokane, Wash., where I grew up. As a kid I spent summers and winters in North Idaho, snowboarding and water skiing. We took an ALS patient to Hell’s Canyon, where we caught an eight-foot sturgeon and slept under a full moon for two nights. One of our highlights was going to Wrigley Field to watch Pearl Jam. It was a memorable night. A massive thunderstorm came through so it was a two-hour “rain delay,” but not one person left and PJ played til 2 a.m.! A few New Orleans friends met us at Wrigley because they won sidestage passes for the show at last year’s Gleason Gras ... It gets harder and harder for me to travel but we keep figuring out ways to keep rolling!

SG: Sure. Everyone should know O.J. Brigance. O.J. was a linebacker in the NFL. He was diagnosed with ALS in 2007. Despite the diagnosis, O.J. has continued his passion, and kept his position as the Director of Player Development for the Ravens and serves as a motivator and inspiration for the team. O.J. and his wife Chanda have served as mentors for Michel and I as we navigate our own path. Eric Valor (www.friends4eric. org) was a surfer/IT manager before he was diagnosed with ALS almost a decade ago. More than any pALS, Eric has helped me deal with the disease. Eric is like Neo from The Matrix. Although he can’t move and uses a ventilator to breathe, when he “plugs in” he is more able than anyone on the Internet. He serves as Team Gleason’s (TG) technology advisor. So, he leads our Web X meetings; he moderated the TG Summit online forums and livestreaming this summer. He texts, tweets and calls anyone and everyone with his eyes. He offers pALS remote tech support by using screen sharing. Eric and I have a chat set up nearly every night. The only thing that sucks about Eric is: He is a 49ers fan. Steve Saling was a landscape architect before his diagnosis in 2007. He inspired the first fully automated ALS residence in the world located in Boston. It turned out we had similar outlooks on how patients can live purposefully, productively with the right technology and support. Steve told me about the ALS nursing home he lived in. The residence actually allowed ALS patients to control their environment. Computers, TVs, lights, doors, elevators and more can be controlled by using just their eyes. This innovative concept allows patients to live very independently without bankrupting their families. His motto, “Until medicine proves otherwise, Technology is the cure” resonated with me. (Check out the voicemail he got from Stephen Hawking: These are incredible examples of pALS who have helped me and Michel forge our own way. More importantly, these are examples of incredible humans I am proud to call friends. But I would be remiss if I didn’t say all the pALS who reach out to us, who are


committed to finding solutions to this disease, who choose life and its adventures — local and worldwide — are creating a powerful voice and inspire me daily. : You’ve talked about how important music is to your life. What artist has moved you the most, and why? And are there any New Orleans artists you think are particularly special?

: You make a lot of great Spotify playlists. Which is your go-to? Pearl Jam will perform at this year’s Voodoo Fest. Any requests? SG: My only real Spotify playlist is Testdrive. I “test drive” two new records every couple weeks. No comment on Voodoo. It should be fun though! : We’re more than halfway through 2013 — what’s your pick for album of the year? SG: Wow. I have no idea! Well, I mean, Pearl Jam’s new album, Lightning Bolt, comes out in October. I was lucky enough to hear it several times this summer for an interview with the band. That has got to be at the top of my list. Other candidates are: Bankrupt! by Phoenix

: You were looking forward to the Dalai Lama’s visit to New Orleans. Were you able to see or hear him? What thoughts did you have on his address? SG: Yes. I watched him speak [at the University of New Orleans]. At least from what I have read from him over the years, the Dalai Lama would probably be my first choice for the question, “Of any living person, who would you most want to have dinner with?” He did have some points that stuck with me. When someone asked, “How do you stay optimistic amidst so much tragedy?” His basic response was, “What other choice do I have? It’s more fun being happy, no matter what the circumstances.” That was something I could relate to. : After riding in Bacchus during this year’s Carnival, will you join another krewe next year? Do you have a favorite? SG: Who knows?! I have ridden in Endymion and Bacchus two times, so those are my favorite rides, but my favorite parade to watch is Thoth. We compete to win the Mardi Gras trophy every year during Thoth. We have won 16 out of 17 years, so I suppose it’s not really a competition. “We’re number one!’” : Your high school alma mater retired your jersey recently. What was it like to be back to receive the honor? SG: Most of why I am the guy I am today is because of my relationships I formed and the community from Gonzaga Prep. Enough said. — For more information on Team Gleason and fighting ALS, visit

Steve Gleason will be attending 33 Variations, Southern Rep’s season opening play about Beethoven and a classical music scholar with ALS. The Sept. 20 performance will be a benefit for the ALS Association LouisianaMississippi chapter and Team Gleason. For more information, see page 39.


SG: My first favorite bands were Led Zeppelin and Simon and Garfunkel. One of my friends’ parents had a record collection that we found in the basement. I remember hearing Kashmir by Led Zeppelin and feeling like I blew my mind on what music should sound like. I grew up just a few hours from Seattle, so the grunge scene from the ’90s was influential on me. Alice in Chains, Nirvana, Soundgarden and Pearl Jam. During my football career, I became friends with Mike McCready (guitarist for PJ). I have since gotten to know the rest of the band fairly well. I interviewed the band for their upcoming album, Lightning Bolt, which is their tenth. The interview will be utilized around the release of the album Oct. 15. Several local artists I love... I do not want to forget anyone... Theresa Andersson and John Boutte played our wedding ceremony. My Name is John Michael. Revivalists. Anders [Osborne]. A favorite music memory of mine is watching Galactic play “When the Levee Breaks” in 2006 at Jazz Fest. Big Sam. Trombone Shorty. Mia Borders. Rotary Downs. Kristin Diable. Coyotes. But the most special — Paul Varisco & the Milestones.

SCUTTLEBUTT Quote of the week

“We’ve got a great newspaper here, a daily newspaper, instead of having one three days a week, or whatever it is.” — New Orleans Saints and Pelicans owner Tom Benson, taking a swipe at The Times-Picayune at a reception announcing The New Orleans Advocate would now be “the official newspaper” of the two sports teams (see second item below). The comment raised eyebrows because Benson’s television station, WVUE-TV, is in its own partnership with The Times-Picayune.

Georges, Benson partner up

Newspaper, sports teams in league of their own The New Orleans Advocate, which formally relaunched last month after the Baton Rouge Advocate began publishing locally 11 months ago, is now the official newspaper of the New Orleans Saints and New Orleans Pelicans, Advocate owner John Georges announced at a reception at the Superdome last week. Georges was joined by Tom Benson, owner of the Saints and Pelicans, and Saints co-owner Rita Benson LeBlanc. The deal does not extend to naming rights to the New Orleans Arena, though Georges said there would be plenty of Advocate signage in the city’s sports complex. The partnership between two of New Orleans’ wealthiest and most influential families drew a crowd of several hundred business leaders and politicos to a third-floor lounge in the Superdome, including most of the New Orleans City Council and Jefferson Parish President John Young, as well as Benson’s wife Gayle Benson and Georges’ wife Dathel Coleman Georges. Most of the Advocate’s New Orleans editorial staff was on hand as well, though editor Peter Kovacs said the newspaper and sports teams’ partnership would not extend to editorial content in any way, but simply be a marketing and promotional tool for both entities. Georges said the New Orleans paper, which began as a bureau of fewer than 12 under its previous owners, the Manship family of Baton Rouge, now has a staff of 41. (By comparison, The TimesPicayune has upwards of 150 employ-

ees, though the official number is not public.) Despite making a PR splash, local advertising has been slow to follow the Advocate’s incursion into New Orleans, a fact that Georges noted tacitly when he told the crowd, “I’m asking everyone here to subscribe to the paper, but if you’re in business, advertise.” Various circulation numbers for The New Orleans Advocate have been reported in recent months. So what’s the real figure? “We have about 20,000 to 25,000 total [home delivery and newsstand],” Georges said. “They started with about 21,000 [paid home delivery subscriptions in the New Orleans market] when the Manships had it; it fell to about 15,000 home delivery.” Georges’ goal, he said, is to use the Saints/Pelicans partnership and the new ad campaign to double that figure by year’s end, bringing the paper to 30,000 paid home delivery copies. Asked if he saw any conflict of interest in this mutual self-promotion, Georges shook his head no. “We separate our business and our editorial, just like Gambit and all other papers do.” — KEVIN ALLMAN

BGR: Too many N.O. judges

Judges offer measured response Local watchdog group The Bureau of Governmental Research (BGR) released a report Sept. 3 saying Orleans Parish has up to 25 surplus judges, costing tax-


Guidry slow to draw challengers District A is historically host to one of the more volatile seats on the New Orleans City Council — the last four elections have yielded four different winners — but the field of potential challengers to incumbent Councilwoman Susan Guidry is largely quiet as she completes her first term. A Guidry campaign internal poll conducted in June may explain why. Twothirds of likely voters in the district said they have a favorable opinion of Guidry — a tall barrier for any potential challenger to overcome. The automated phone survey of 554 likely voters was conducted on behalf of the Win Partners consulting firm for the Guidry campaign. Internal polls should always be taken with a healthy grain of salt; still, the results of the Guidry poll would be good news for any campaign and difficult for any potential challenger to ignore. With a margin of error of 4 percent, it shows Guidry’s name is recognized by 77.6 percent of residents of the district likely to vote in the 2014 elections, and that 66 percent of respondents have a favorable opinion of her. Her strongest constituencies are Democrats and white voters, but more than half of Republicans, independents and black voters all had favorable opinions of her as well. Two of the last four District A representatives have been Republicans, but the GOP has been silent on possible challengers to Guidry. Former District A Councilman Scott Shea said the seat represents the best opportunity for Republicans to get on the council. “I would like to see at least one Republican on the City Council,” Shea said, though he noted he’s not interested in running again. More activity has come from within the Democratic Party. In political circles, former School Board member Una Anderson’s name has been mentioned as a possible challenger to Guidry, but Anderson did not respond to phone

payers $14 million a year. “The parish’s seven courts need 20 judges, or less than half of the 45 they currently have,” the BGR report concludes. “Six of the courts have more than twice as many judges as they need.” Caseloads also have dwindled, according to BGR. Civil District Court, Juvenile Court, First City Court and Second City Court filings dropped by 55 to 88 percent since peaking in the 1980s. Juvenile Court case filings have steadily decreased since the mid-1990s from 8,000 a year to less than 2,000 in 2012. Civil District Court had nearly 30,000 filings at its peak in the late 1980s but has decreased to fewer than 15,000 filings in 2012. At Criminal District Court, filings plummeted to less than 5,000 in 2012. There were more than 10,000 filings in 2009 — but many misdemeanor cases formerly filed at Criminal Court are now prosecuted in Municipal Court. Despite the increased workload in the form of additional misdemeanor cases, Municipal Court filings steadily dropped from nearly 90,000 in 2004 to less than 40,000 in 2012. Traffic court filings dropped by half since 2002, when they hit a 30-year peak of nearly 300,000 cases, according to BGR. The 36-page report recommends eliminating five (of six) judges in Juvenile Court, three (of four) judges in Traffic Court, and essentially halving the rest: losing six judges in Criminal District Court and seven judges in Traffic Court. The report did not suggest eliminating any of the four Municipal Court judgeships. Each surplus judgeship costs the public $570,000 a year, according to the BGR. The BGR study drew a measured response from the judiciary. Chief Justice Bernette Johnson issued a statement taking note of the study and adding that the court is waiting for the final report of a legislatively created panel that is looking at the total number of judges statewide, not just in New Orleans, and at all levels of the judiciary — from district courts to justices of the peace to appellate courts. Known as “the 143 Committee” (it was created by House Concurrent Resolution 143 several years ago), the panel cited by Johnson is chaired by state Sen. Ed Murray, D-New Orleans. “The 143 Committee is made up of a diverse group of legislators from both the house and the senate, judges from different levels of court, representatives from the private bar, and citizens from the community,” Johnson said in her statement. “The committee has been meeting diligently for two years and is scheduled to complete its work by February 2014.”

NEWS VIEWS Before issuing its final report, the 143 Committee will hold a public hearing at the state Capitol in October to receive input from the public. “Ultimately, the state Legislature is tasked with the creation and funding of judgeships which is why the Supreme Court will be guided by the work of the 143 Committee,” Johnson’s statement concluded. “We believe it is important to allow the 143 Committee to finish its work.” — ALEX WOODWARD & CLANCY DuBOS

Free HIV screenings

AIDS conference in N.O. Sept. 8-11 In conjunction with the U.S. Conference on AIDS held in New Orleans, Walgreens locations throughout New Orleans will offer free HIV testing from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 10. A February 2013 report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said New Orleans ranks as the third-highest city for new HIV diagnoses (with Baton Rouge ranking second-highest), while the South accounts for nearly half of all new HIV diagnoses, and 46 percent of new AIDS cases each year. The National Minority AIDS Council holds its annual conference in New Orleans Sept. 8-11. While its 2013 Summit to End HIV/AIDS in America will focus on enrolling people living with HIV into Affordable Care Act programs, the “region-specific” conference will address the HIV/AIDS epidemic in the South. (Visit for details.) Walgreens partnered with the NO/ AIDS Task Force to offer free HIV testing with no appointment necessary. — ALEX WOODWARD

thinking out loud

A taxing conundrum ame-sex marriage proponents received one of their biggest victories in late August when the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) announced that same-sex married couples can, as of Sept. 16, file joint federal tax returns, just as any other married couple. It’s the most tangible benefit to marriage so far for gays and lesbians in Louisiana, where same-sex marriage ceremonies as well as civil unions are outlawed by the state constitution. For years now, a couple from Louisiana could travel to a state where same-sex marriages are performed and come home legally married, but there were few tangible benefits to getting hitched — just emotional ones. The IRS ruling (which came in the wake of the courts striking down the federal Defense of Marriage Act) means same-sex couples can enjoy the same federal tax benefits as other married couples. Those benefits are substantial. U.S. Treasury Secretary Jacob J. Lew wrote in a statement, “Today’s ruling provides certainty and clear, coherent tax-filing guidance for all legally married same-sex couples nationwide.” Clear and coherent — on the federal level, at least. What it means at the state level is murkier, and seems poised to leave Louisiana and some other states open to legal challenges as the ramifications of the new IRS rule become clear. Same-sex marriage has never been legal in Louisiana. Moreover, in 2004, Louisianans preemptively amended the state constitution to outlaw not only samesex marriages, but also civil unions. The amendment reads, “No official or court of the state of Louisiana shall recognize any marriage contracted in any other jurisdiction which is not the union of one man and one woman.” Tax experts have said that likely means that same-sex couples will not be able to use federal joint tax returns to prepare their state returns in Louisiana, even though state returns here are expressly tied to federal returns. Instead, they will have to prepare three sets of federal returns — one federal joint return and two sets of never-to-be-filed individual federal returns, which will be used to calculate their separate state returns. In an editorial last week, The Washington Post wrote, “Given that federal taxable income is often used as the starting point for state taxation, non-recognition states will have to provide at least some sort of guidance for their citizens moving forward. If they don’t, a regulatory nightmare is bound to follow.” Enter Louisiana. As of last week, Gov. Bobby Jindal’s administration had made no policy statement on the issue. Jindal is a staunch opponent of same-sex marriage — but he’s also a self-professed proponent of attracting businesses to Louisiana and simplifying taxes. If the state Department of Revenue insists on same-sex couples filling out two extra tax forms before they

can file state tax returns, it would send a message of inequality to firms looking to relocate in Louisiana — and further complicate state tax law. Unfortunately, the state constitution makes the law clear: an “official” of the state cannot acknowledge same-sex marriages. The law — and public acceptance — has moved extremely rapidly on this issue. In 2004, Massachusetts was the first state to allow same-sex marriage. Today, 13 states and the District of Columbia perform them. A May Gallup poll showed 53 percent of Americans now support legalizing same-sex marriage, up from 27 percent in 1996. Things are more complicated in Louisiana, where a recent poll showed a majority of Louisiana Democrats opposes same-sex marriage. Things are just as complicated in New Orleans, easily the state’s most liberal city. Mayor Mitch Landrieu remains one of the nation’s few big-city Democratic mayors not to sign on to the “Freedom to Marry”

A simpler, fairer tax system that results in more governmental red tape? Only in Louisiana. campaign in support of same-sex marriage (more than 350 mayors of both parties are on board). The mayor has said he supports civil unions for same-sex couples. As lieutenant governor, however, he supported a 2005 bill to relax the state’s marriage laws and allow Vegas-style quickie weddings in the French Quarter. Even as Landrieu demurs, the New Orleans Convention and Visitors Bureau is running a targeted LGBT tourism campaign, giving away a New Orleans honeymoon package to one lucky samesex couple. The irony here is that the campaign runs in the 13 states that do allow same-sex marriage. A simpler, fairer tax system that results in more governmental red tape? A honeymoon package in a state that doesn’t acknowledge — much less respect — same-sex marriages? Only in Louisiana. Polls consistently show young voters of both parties support same-sex marriage and don’t understand why it’s such a big deal among their elders. Once again, the courts will have to “fix” what Louisiana has broken.

Pushing back predicted flood protection efforts will “go back to the old way of doing business and having people that are not independent thinkers. And that’s the way it’s been going anyway on many levels, not just the levee boards.” The SLFPA-E nominating committee is comprised (mostly) of politically independent, professionally qualified folks. It is chaired by Frierson’s neighbor, businessman Jay Lapeyre, who no doubt will give her comments greater weight than will Jindal. Also on the nominating committee is the dean of LSU’s College of Engineering, which recently received a $2 million grant from Chevron, a named defendant in the lawsuit. I’m sure the timing of Chevron’s donation was coincidental. It will be no coincidence if the dean, whose university is under

The political pressure in response to the suit has been relentless and, until recently, one-sided. Jindal’s thumb, votes against reappointing Doody and Barry. Meanwhile, Graves continues to mince no words in parroting the Jindal Administration line. “You cannot map the scenarios that happen with this lawsuit and come to any conclusion other than that this lawsuit goes away,” he told the Advocate. “If this board can’t figure that out, then there is a 100 percent chance that this board will be changed in terms of the members and that the Legislature will be acting on this.” Since Graves likes to speak in absolutes, let me sum things up in terms that he will find familiar: If he, Jindal and Big Oil succeed in quashing the suit, taxpayers will have to pay billions to cover the energy industry’s share of responsibility for coastal land loss and higher flood protection costs. If he can’t figure that out, then there is a 100 percent chance that he is a political hack.

rom the moment the regional flood protection authority filed an environmental lawsuit against nearly 100 oil and gas companies, members of the board have been the targets of intense political pressure from the governor, his minions and state lawmakers. Now, finally, some are starting to push back. The lawsuit, filed in late July, seeks to make 97 oil, gas and pipeline companies pay their share — and only their share — of the costs of restoring lost wetlands in southeast Louisiana and protecting metro New Orleans from the increased threat of flooding. Those costs are a direct result of thousands of miles of oil and gas canals carved out of south Louisiana’s wetlands over the past 80 years. The oil industry admits this much; it just wants taxpayers to foot the bill. Given that the suit could surpass the tobacco litigation in damage awards and legal impact if it goes to trial, it’s understandable that the energy industry — through its lapdog, Gov. Bobby Jindal — would pull out all the stops to quash the litigation as quickly as possible and by any means necessary. Jindal and his coastal czar, Garret Graves, want the flood authority’s president and vice president, Tim Doody and John Barry, removed from the board. The terms of both men have expired, but they can be reappointed. The political pressure in response to the suit has been relentless and, until recently, one-sided. Last week, two prominent voices defended both men and the Southeast Louisiana Flood Protection Authority-East (SLFPA-E) against Jindal’s attacks: former Gov. Kathleen Blanco, who supported levee board reforms in the wake of Hurricane Katrina; and Ruthie Frierson, founder of Citizens for 1 Greater New Orleans, which initiated the grassroots push for levee board reform after the storm. Citing Doody and Barry’s “exceptional leadership” on the board, Frierson penned a letter to The New Orleans Advocate urging the SLFPA-E nominating committee and Jindal to reappoint both men. “Doody and Barry are recognized at the local, state and national levels as experts in the area of flood protection, and with their experience and commitment to this vital cause, are in the best position to continue to champion and to sustain safe and reliable flood protection for southeast Louisiana,” Frierson wrote. Noting Jindal’s efforts to oust Barry and Doody and the sordid political history of levee boards before Katrina, Blanco told the Advocate, “It looks like we’re going full circle. Instead of going forward, we’re going backward.” If Jindal and lawmakers succeed in unraveling the lawsuit, Blanco








here’s no shortage of interesting personalities and sounds in New Orleans. We’ve had our eyes and ears on a few emerging artists — from cutthroat MCs and bluegrass young guns to heavy metal beasts.

WHO: Bantam Foxes WHAT: New Orleans-accented garage pop

WHO: 3D Na’Tee WHAT: quick-witted, take-no-prisoners MC with storytelling chops



WHO: Pretty Bleak WHAT: ghostly electronic heartbreakers Justin Vial’s post-punk outfit Kindest Lines brightens its goth-tinged pop with colorful synthesizers and romantic new wave. Jesse Kees performs as Leaving, which released the operatic drone album We Are in January. With the duo’s aptly named project Pretty Bleak, Vial and Kees simmer in grime- and gloom-glazed synthpop and crank the fog machine to full blast. In November, the duo will release its debut album on Brooklyn’s electronic-focused Function Operate label. — ALEX WOODWARD PAGE 21


Schoolyard rap battles at the lunch table helped launch 3D Na’Tee’s career as a New Orleans hip-hop wrecking ball. “I just thought it was funny, and everyone liked when I did it because I’d always say some vile shit about somebody,” she says. Na’Tee — the class clown and battle-rap cutup — also wrote powerful poetry about her father’s suicide and her mother’s drug use. “I could use rap to vent. That’s where I saw my power.” Her power and jet-fueled flow shine in hard hitters like “Lil Kim” as well as her whip-crack lyricism, which caught the attention of hip-hop’s kingmakers Russell Simmons and Steve Rifkind, who launched All Def Digital and scooped Na’Tee for its debut roster in July. She also launched an iPhone and Android app offering exclusive downloads and videos and live chats with fans. “I want these people to feel like they know me,” she says. Na’Tee earned acclaim for 2011’s Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner mixtape and last year’s The Coronation. She’s preparing her follow-up, The Regime, for a possible late 2013 release. “I want people to love me for my lyrical ability, the content of my music, and not because I’m from the South and I got a big ass,” she says. “I want to be respected as one of the greatest.” In a freestyle alongside Kendrick Lamar that went viral in March, Na’Tee threw down the gauntlet in the male-dominated battlefield for hip-hop’s throne: “It’s just not logical that I don’t have a deal yet/ I guess it’s because I don’t have a pink wig and I still got my real breasts.” “If you want to stand firm and stand strong you might risk being called a bitch, and that’s how it is in hip hop,” she says. “You have to be the best.” — ALEX WOODWARD

Local trio Bantam Foxes offer a succinct summation of their sound: “New Orleans rock ’n’ roll.” That simple description could conjure up artists from Fats Domino to Supagroup, but Bantam Foxes has in just two years developed a sound that draws no easy comparisons in the canon of New Orleans rock ’n’ roll. Members Sam McCabe (guitar, vocals), Collin McCabe (bass, guitar) and Jared Marcell (drums) combine wailing, urgent lyrics above fuzzy, grungy guitars and a pulsing backbeat in songs infused with blues, punk and garage rock. The band has built a following with frenetic, yet artful, live shows during tours across the Deep South. Bantam Foxes are no slouches in the studio, either. The group released three EPs in rapid succession: Another Image, Another Frame (2011), Twin Tone (2012, for which they produced a video for catchy single “Logic”) and Fascination, which dropped earlier this year. For its debut LP, the band turned to producer Ben Lorio at the Music Shed and crafted Triumph, which finds the band equally at home with heavy psychedelic hooks, as found on “Die Alone,” as well as head-bobbing acoustic songs such as “Behave.” Bantam Foxes will hold an album release show for Triumph at Gasa Gasa on Sept. 27. — FRANK ETHERIDGE







WHO: Sports & Leisure WHAT: orchestral indie pop This symphonic sextet quickly distinguished itself among the influx of indie bands playing New Orleans clubs with haunting but catchy soundscapes. During live shows, Sports & Leisure imbues trippy tunes with dynamic tempo changes that mark deft turns from folk to gypsy to funk to Pink Floyd-esque freakiness. Sports & Leisure gelled as a steady-gigging six-piece band, featuring B.J. Blue (keyboards), Richard Dubourg (guitar), formerly of MyNameIsJohnMichael, Whitney Brown (bass), Scott Hannan and Russell Shelton (drums). With echoes of pop phenoms Phoenix and Southern rockers My Morning Jacket, Sports & Leisure combines emotive lyrics, groovy instrumentals (“Big Wind”) and full-tilt frenzies (“Sunburn”), as documented by the band’s May 2013 debut EP, Fitness. — FRANK ETHERIDGE P H OTO BY N I C K U RRU T I A

WHO: Barghest WHAT: Louisiana’s primitive black metal woods-dwellers

Despite its referential attitude toward musicians and their lasting impact to the greater cultural community, New Orleans has a punk rock scene that knows bands are, after all, ephemeral. Nothing lasts forever. Come up with an idea, make something, repeat. New Orleans churns out short-lived groups that commit to live performance and reliably good records — it’s rare a band forms without committing at least a few songs to tape, or CD-Rs to throw out at a show. Members of startand-stop outfits Sparrowhawk, Necro Hippies and Small Bones formed Vibe Ruiner, a decidedly darker, dagger-twisting take on tension-building hardcore punk. The band released a six-song cassette in time for its summer-long East Coast tour. — ALEX WOODWARD

Continuing the grand tradition of sorcery started nearly 30 years ago and thousands of miles from Louisiana, Barghest thrives in the devastatingly ashen sound of its Scandinavian predecessors. Black metal has recently been welcomed by the so-called mainstream, but bands like Barghest can retreat comfortably into the swamp and conjure demons uninterrupted. In 2011, the band released its untitled full-length debut on Wisconsin-based label Gilead Media, home to fellow Louisiana doombringers Thou. The band’s relentlessly black compositions are something like classical suites, though they’re performed in lightning speed on ear-splitting guitars accompanied by throat-shredding vocals. — ALEX WOODWARD

WHO: The Kid Carsons WHAT: sleepy lap-steelpowered, brother-sister folk duo from Black Bayou On The Kid Carsons’ debut EP Settle Down, Chad and Morgan D. Carson round up country barnburners, torch songs and bloodlust confessionals — a well-crafted collection expected from songwriters gunning for the Nashville crown. But the sibling bandmates and founders of bayou-damp label and studio Bear America hail from southwest Louisiana and are steadily building a Gulf Coast hub for swampy Americana, adding artists like Monroe songwriter Woody Ledbetter and Little Rock, Ark. outfit Swampbird.

R. Scully and Rough Seven release Codebreaker BY N OA H B O N A PA RT E PA I S



Does anyone know how to play an E chord?” It’s long past sundown, but teacher-by-day Ryan Scully is looking for volunteers. Invariably, he finds one, brings him to the stage and hands over his instrument — to an unwitting pledge about to be hazed. “I have my guitar set up so that when they come up, I hit the tuning pedal and it just goes crazy with feedback,” Scully says with a laugh. “That’s great fun.” Welcome to the Rough Seven. The indoctrination comes during “Preacher By Day,” a duplicitous rocker off the band’s second LP, Codebreaker (Upper Ninth). “Thanks for the massage, buddy/ It blew my mind,” Scully sings in his tattered upper register. “Preacher by day/ Meth-snortin’ boymonger at night.” On record, the squalling solo backs the hollow apology speeches of David Vitter and Ted Haggard. (“That’s Ted,” Scully confirms affectionately.) To say Codebreaker follows the Rough Seven’s 2010 debut, Give Up Your Dreams, is another misdirection. Half the album is the merry prankster and gospel salvager that longtime fans of Scully’s bands (Morning 40 Federation, Charm City Brokers) know and love: “Preacher By Day,” “New Kind of Love” and showstopper “Rather Go Blind,” an Etta James nod on which ancillary singer Meschiya Lake starts solo and is joined by the band — midchorus, at full volume. “That kicks ass, doesn’t it?” Scully says. “We lowered [the signal] for a reason, so that people would turn it up a little bit. They don’t realize they’re gonna get kicked in the face.” The other half goes back farther, and is for an even more select group: the inner circle that’s been around since the beginning. Those tracks, recorded a decade ago and exhumed from a dusty hard drive in Scully’s Bywater home, are the original Rough Seven. “That’s where this band got its name,” he says of his current ensemble, including Rob Cambre on guitar, Ratty Scurvics on keys, Steve Calandra on bass and Mike Andrepont, then and now, on drums. “It really didn’t mean anything. There were sort of seven people in the band at one time.” It was the death of Michael Aaron, from heart failure in late 2011, that prompted Scully to revisit the old material. “Opportunity Cost,” “Perfect Tree” and Bob Marley’s “Do It Twice” are darling love songs mixed by Trina Shoemaker as if Scully is on the doorstep; the germ of “St. Anthony,” rerecorded for Give Up Your Dreams, appears just so he could hear Aaron’s E-bowed violin again. “I eliminated songs that had never been released before, and I kept a song that had been released already,” Scully says. “Some of my bandmates didn’t think that was the best idea.” For the new recordings, he enlisted two neighborhood luminaries, Dave Pirner (Soul Asylum) and John Porter (The Smiths, Elvis Costello) — the latter of whom, Scully says, accidentally improved the originals. “I was sentimentally attached to the mixes that Trina did. I said (to Porter), ‘I don’t know if I really want you to remix it. Listen to it and let me know what you think.’ Maybe a week later, he calls me: ‘Scully, it’s all remixed, mate. It’s all remixed.’ Mike (Andrepont) — the only one who’s played on all those songs — we put it on in his car and we almost started crying. He knocked it out of the park, man. We couldn’t ask for anything better.”

any New Orleanians have followed the rising musical star of Troy “Trombone Shorty” Andrews’ since he was brought onstage at the 1990 New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival by blues legend Bo Diddley — a magic moment captured PHOTO BY by late photographer Michael P. Smith JONATHAN as the four-and-a-half year old Andrews MANNION lofted a trombone taller than he was. Local music lovers feel a proud parent’s type of joy regarding the precious success he’s achieved since then. In this spirit, a phone interview with Andrews at a hotel in Santa Monica, Calif., felt like a parent checking in on a kid away at college and marveling at all he’s mastered so many miles from home. The day after performing at the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles, Andrews is as gracious and humble as ever while discussing the release of Say That to Say This, dropping Sept. 10 on Verve Records. It follows 2010’s Grammy-nominated Backatown and 2012’s For True, which spent 12 weeks atop Billboard’s Contemporary Jazz chart. Andrews was recently hailed on NPR as “New Orleans’ brightest new star in a generation,” has gigged with everyone from Dr. Dre to Jeff Beck and appeared on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. He also has graced the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival’s poster (2012) and Congo Square poster (2009). “I was shocked when I got both calls,” Shorty says of the portraits by James Michalopoulos and Terrance Osborne. “I couldn’t believe it; I thought I was too young to be considered.” Andrews also is a ubiquitious figure around town, and recent appearances included a fundraiser for his alma mater Warren Easton Charter High School and a scheduled slot singing the national anthem at the New Orleans Saints season opener. Even given his new globetrotting status, Andrew is a homeboy at heart and relates his music to his musical family and hometown. “I knew I wanted to be a musician at an early age,” Andrews says. “So my older brother James would take me around to people: Dr. John, Allen Toussaint, Rebirth. I had the chance to work with DJ Mannie Fresh. I was just hearing all that music as music … I really didn’t know what all that would mean 10 years later; I just wanted to keep my mind and ears open.” Andrews absorbed the city’s myriad musical styles — jazz, R&B, funk, rock ’n’ roll, hip-hop, all swinging to the cohesive quality Jelly Roll Morton called “the Spanish tinge.” Backed by his band Orleans Avenue — Michael Ballard (bass), Pete Murano (guitar), Dan Oestreicher (baritone sax), Joey Peebles (drums) and Tim McFatter (tenor sax) — the mix is on masterful display on Say That to Say This’ 10 tracks. For the cover of “Be My Lady,” Andrews persuaded the original members of The Meters members to reconvene for the first time in a studio together since 1977 to help lay down a 21st-century take on the ballad. “When I finished the record, [co-producer Raphael Saadiq and I] realized it needed a smooth ballad,” Andres says. “I’ve been a fan of that song for years so I called each individual member — and there was a moment of silence on the other end each time I called,” he adds. “I love The Meters. I know how important they are. I was schooled by driving around the city with my cousin Travis Hill, listening to The Meters, Ernie K-Doe, that was my music lesson.” The driving rhythms and imagery of rough city streets in “Fire and Brimstone” call to mind Andrews’ native New Orleans, but he says the song, like his approach, may be rooted in New Orleans but strives for universal appeal and understanding. “The song’s blowing hard about keep moving forward, never stop dreaming,” he says.

fter Truth Universal watched a b-boy competition at the 1984 Louisiana World Exposition, he grabbed cardboard from supermarket Dumpsters and rummaged through music store bins for 12-inch records. His family couldn’t afford a set of turntables, so he learned to rap. “After school we’d go out and drink and be in the backseat freestyling. ‘Man, you should be writing some of this stuff down,’” he remembers thinking. “Then I went to college, and it was like, ‘Man, you should really be writing this stuff down.’” Truth Universal made waves not as a party rocking MC but as a pioneer of socially conscious, politically aware and provocative New Orleans hip-hop. “It’s important for people who understand what’s going on to put that in the music,” he says. “I’m an organizer, an activist, at heart. I’m going to try to start the discussions so we can work on solutions. It’s important we keep that alive in hip-hop.” With his upcoming album Invent the Future, set for an Oct. 8 release, Truth Universal nods to his nostalgia for and roots in “golden era” hip-hop, not only with a focus on culture and community in his lyrics, but by including sample-based beats and turntables, a decidedly different take on rap’s endless affair with a club-ready sound. “I want to be post-golden era,” he says. “At the heart of it, it has that classic feel to it.” Born in Trinidad, Truth moved to New Orleans at age 4. He started committing his rhymes to paper by the time he went to college, but he says, “The first thing I wrote was just a bunch of punchlines strung together.” Although he was influenced by Big Daddy Kane and Public Enemy, Truth didn’t start infusing his writing with political consciousness until later. With Invent the Future, his fourth studio effort, Truth wields his politics like a sharp-edged sword.


“Police corruption, the housing situation, gentrification, the lack of access to fresh foods — it’s wide open for all that,” he says. “I turn it up when I can.” After a brooding, call-to-action introduction — composed entirely of samples — Truth breathlessly rips through the album’s title track, ending with his mission statement: “Affecting social change, to my heart that purpose is dear/ Invent the future, the main intent of my career.” On “Motivated,” Truth namedrops Rutgers University professor Ivan van Sertima and Burkina Faso revolutionary-turnedpresident Thomas Sankara as he counts off his contributors to his “mental wealth” — then promises to put “New Orleans on the map like Rand McNally” on the following track, “For the Love.” Truth stacks his “post-golden era” sound with an all-star round-up of well-equipped producers and guest appearances, like Dilated Peoples MC Rakaa Iriscience and New Orleans rapper and frequent Truth collaborator Lyrikill. The album also marks Truth’s next phase after returning the monthly hip-hop showcase Grassroots, which ended its decade-long run in December. It ushered in dozens of up-and-coming and first-timer MCs as a place to discover and hone new voices. Truth plans to bring it back as an annual festival. “Bigger than before,” he says. “Get people traveling from outside New Orleans, and at the same time feature and help expose the local and emerging sounds.”

afayette’s latest trade is in pop music exports. From confetti-covered and face-painted GIVERS to power-pop craftsmen Brass Bed, the town’s roster of ambitious, up-and-coming pop outfits has caught attention well outside Acadiana’s bustling (and growing) Cajun music scenes. Royal Teeth — whose members met at University of Louisiana at Lafayette and hail from Baton Rouge, Chalmette and Slidell — crafts the kind of earnest, wide-eyed pop you’d hear in an Apple commercial or in the big climax of a teen drama. Think gently plucked strings, piano-driven rockers and call-to-action anthems: “Throw out the map, break out the windows, never look back, chasing our shadows/ We’re vagabonds, living on the run. We do, we take, whatever we want,” harmonized in perfect pitch by singers Gary Larsen and Nora Patterson on “Vagabonds.” On Royal Teeth’s full-length debut Glow, released in August on Dangerbird Records (home to Minus the Bear and Silversun Pickups), the band pairs lush studio production with whimsical, 21st century pop — embellished with handclaps, sticks and shakers for percussion, massive choruses of “whoas,” whistles and big, jubilant choruses. Before the album’s release, the band already landed festival slots, TV appearances and national headlining tours. The group toured behind its 2012 EP Act Naturally, featuring the single “Wild” (also on GLOW), which captures the band’s dedicated take on relentlessly positive, youthful pop: “Just because we’re growing up, it doesn’t mean we’ve had enough./ When times are hard we’ll smile and say we’re not afraid of anything.”

7th Ward hucklebuck ladies: Do they still exist? By Megan Braden-Perry


At your serviette

Looking for some French Quarter eating and drinking advice from a local? Hadi Ktiri performs that service in his role as bartender at Arnaud’s French 75, but he also does so virtually on his blog Napkin Local (napkinlocal.blogspot. com). Just as he would behind the bar, Ktiri writes down his picks on a napkin, then photographs it and uploads it to his blog. “Great Places for Jazz,” “Best Seafood in the Quarter” and “Where the Bartenders and Servers Eat Before Work” are among his latest recommended lists. Ktiri also takes requests, so if you have any questions about going out in the Vieux Carre, drop him a note on the blog. — KEVIN ALLMAN

A 7th Ward resident sells hucklebucks and snacks from a doorstep on Allen Street. P H O T O B Y M EG A N B R A D EN - P ER R Y

I wondered if my search would be fruitless. I saw a man who seemed to be my age and asked him if there were any hucklebuck ladies in the 7th Ward. He confirmed their absence. I turned down New Orleans Street, thinking of the hucklebuck ladies around Hardin Park I knew growing up. Perhaps hucklebuck ladies were casualties of Hurricane Katrina and the federal floods. A friend of mine told me his mom sold hucklebucks around St. Augustine High School every afternoon from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m., but I didn’t see her. I wondered if I had been given the hucklebuck okie-doke. On North Dorgenois Street, across from Hardin Park, I saw

Drinking Louisiana-brewed beers while cheering on the New Orleans Saints just makes sense. Below are five Louisiana brews to drink on game day, based on drinkability, availability and price. NOLA Brewing Hopitoulas: If you’re looking for a nice hoppy brew, this one fills the bill. It’s well balanced, but be careful, because at 6.5 percent alcohol by volume (ABV), it packs a punch. Hopitoulas is also available in 16-ounce cans for tailgating convenience. Bayou Teche LA 31 Biere Pale: If you’re tailgating at a Saints game, most likely you’re eating Louisiana favorites like jambalaya, boudin or etouffee. This pale ale has a great balance between hops and malts and it goes well with those dishes. Abita Amber: This classic Munich-style lager is another beer that goes great with Louisiana cuisine. With a 4.5 percent ABV it’s easy to drink a few and still be in good shape to support your team. Tin Roof Blonde: Baton Rouge-based Tin Roof Brewing produces this light, crisp blonde ale. It’s sure to be popular with the LSU faithful because it comes in purple and gold cans. NOLA Brewing Brown Ale: NOLA’s Brown Ale is a tasty malt bomb with 4 percent ABV, making it easy to drink a few while watching the game. — JEREMY LABADIE

Cutting the mustard

When Dijon reopens on Sept. 10 after a vacation break, a new chef will be at the helm. Ricky Cheramie recently left the Bombay Club to take over at the Lower Garden District restaurant. Cheramie says a desire for a decidedly more French-focused direction is the reason for the change. He replaces chef Daniel Causgrove. PAGE 30


hen I was a girl, people knew me as my mom’s shadow. I was an only child, she wasn’t married and we didn’t have a car until I was in sixth grade, so when she went walking around the 7th Ward visiting family and friends, I was with her — always. The highlights of my walks were always stopping somewhere for hucklebucks. Some people call them frozen cups or huck-a-bucks, and in other Southern cities they are called cool cups, cold cups and icebergs, but hucklebucks are solid sno-balls sold in Dixie cups. To make them, you freeze a mixture of sno-ball syrup and water. Of course, there are variations. Riding Ms. Biagas’ van to McDonogh No. 39 Elementary School, I remember hearing kids from New Orleans East say they knew a hucklebuck lady who put gumballs in the bottom of her hucklebucks. Other kids talked about a woman who wrapped quarters in tinfoil and put them at the bottom of each of hers. There were quite a few “hucklebuck ladies” in the 7th Ward when I was a girl, including several who lived near Hardin Park. The one I remember most was Ms. Theriot. Like most hucklebuck ladies, she was a senior citizen with a house full of china cats, colorful afghans and macrame plant towers. When my mom and I visited her, she’d always let me pick a hucklebuck from her Frigidaire. Blue bubble gum, coconut, nectar, spearmint, pineapple and strawberry were my favorite flavors. She often had layered hucklebucks like red, white and blue which were strawberry, coconut and bubble gum or red and yellow which were strawberry and pineapple. My paw-paw said when he was a boy at Gilbert Academy, the girls who had pineapple and strawberry sno-balls or hucklebucks would say, “Red and yella, catch a fella!” My research for Gambit’s “Cheap Thrills” issue (June 25, 2013) led me back to the part of the 7th Ward near Hardin Park, in search of the hucklebuck ladies I hadn’t seen — or looked for — in more than a decade. “Are there hucklebuck ladies around here anymore?” I asked a woman sitting on her Hope Street porch. “I’m sure all the ones I knew growing up are dead.” “No, not anymore,” she responded, a hint of longing in her voice. As I hung my head a little, feeling embarrassed for asking the question, she shouted, “Well, there might be a lady by the park, but I don’t know.”

3-COURSE interview

HUCKLEBUCK L ADIES [CONTINUED] two men sitting on a porch. They looked vaguely familiar — if my mom were alive, they’d probably all figure out we were “couzans” in the 7th Ward Creole way. I asked them if they knew a hucklebuck lady. “Yeah, right around the corner,” one responded. “And she just went home!” the other added. I thanked them and dashed to my car. I made a quick turn down Allen Street and saw what I thought only existed in the recesses of my mind: the definitive 7th Ward hucklebuck lady. She was younger, wore a tank top instead of a housecoat and had some new-school flavors like cake and mango, but I could tell the archetypal 7th Ward hucklebuck lady hadn’t changed. Once I got my hucklebuck, I firmly but slowly rolled it between my hands to loosen it from the plastic cup so I could flip it over and eat it the best way. I popped-and-flipped it perfectly, as expertly as I did when I was a girl. Turns out, I hadn’t changed either.




“(Causgrove) was doing a real good job, but me and (owner) Kurt (Brodtmann) feel like we should be a little more classic French with a little more Creole flair,” Cheramie (pictured right) says. Specific changes are still up in the air, but Cheramie says he’ll start figuring things out over the next few weeks. Cheramie is excited about pairing uncommon combinations of ingredients, such as fried oysters and hog’s head cheese, and he will change the menu seasonally. Cheramie says he’ll have more freedom at Dijon than he had at the Bombay Club. “There was a new direction at the Bombay Club,” he says. “It was less fine dining and more burgers and stuff, and that’s not really what I do.” Nathan “Nick” Gile, who led the Bombay Club’s kitchen before Cheramie took over in 2010, will return to take Cheramie’s place. Dijon has changed chefs a couple of times since it opened in February 2012. Causgrove arrived after the restaurant separated with its first chef, Christopher Cody. — JEANIE RIESS

Scott Wood Courtyard Brewery

Scott Wood, a beer industry veteran from San Diego and a stay-athome dad to 13-monthold son Jules, expects to open Courtyard Brewery (@courtyardbrew) by spring 2014, with the help of wife Lindsay Hellwig. He’s hosted pop-up beer tastings at Graphite Gallery and comes from a long line of brewers, but only recently got into homebrewing.

What advice do you have for people interested in homebrewing?

Wood: Just do it. It’s three things: sanitation, patience and the ability to boil water. Can you boil water and cool it? Yes. Can you clean up after yourself? Yes. Can you wait a week or a couple weeks? Yes. OK, then brew beer. It’s not hard to make something drinkable with extract kits. You’re not mashing grains and trying to extract sugars at a certain temperature. ˜˜I get everything from Brewstock (3800 Dryades St., 504-208-2788;, @brewstock). We wouldn’t be opening a brewery now if it weren’t for Brewstock, because Aaron [Hyde] was such a helpful person for so long, and we just wouldn’t have thought it was possible otherwise.

How can homebrewers get people who are loyal to Budweiser, Miller and Coors interested in craft beer?

W: I think there are beers for everyone and everyone’s palates. It’s just a matter of experimentation and willingness. In this market, there’s so much good beer available now. Lambics, fruit beers and wits (made with aged hops) are easy to try. If you like red wine, you’ll probably like darker, thicker beers with stone fruit flavors. If you like white wine, you’ll probably enjoy tripels, Belgians and witbiers.

Are there any upcoming events beer lovers should attend?

W: Zwanze Day is coming up. There’s a brewery called Cantillon in Belgium and they’re world-renowned — they’re probably one of the most sought-after breweries in the world and they make a lot of sour beers like lambics and gueuzes, but they make them extremely well and they are very hard to get — very limited. But Polly Watts of Avenue Pub (1732 St. Charles Ave., 504-586-9243;, @avenuepubnola) has a really close connection to the owner and she gets Zwanze, a beer they brew once a year and serve in a handful of bars around the world on Yom Kippur. This year, that’s Sept. 14. It’s amazing that Avenue Pub is one of the bars, since our beer culture’s still relatively small. People have driven in from Houston to participate.

DRINKS MALT weekly After Hurricane Isaac ripped the roof off NOLA Brewing (3001 Tchoupitoulas St., 504-896-9996; a year ago, the repairs and expansion of the brewery led to the creation of a comfortable on-site tap room. Now, after a recent re-examination and reinterpretation of state laws relating to on-premise consumption at a commercial brewery, NOLA Brewing will be opening its tap room to the public to purchase pints and take home growlers and cans of beer. The law permits up to 10 percent of a commercial brewery’s production to be sold directly to the consumer on the premises, as well as the sale of small amounts for personal off-site consumption. (Parish Brewing Company in Broussard was the first to do so, and Tin Roof Brewing Company in Baton Rouge will be the next.) Now that NOLA Brewing has its licensing as well, its tasting room is open for business. The brewery’s 16-tap system serves its commercially available beers as well as “experimental” beers not found anywhere else, such as beer aged in rum barrels and test batches of future releases. Patrons can order a flight of beers or enjoy a full pint. Pints are $5-$6, with a 10-ounce option available for $3-$4.

WINE of the week 2009 R Petite Sirah


This bold, full-bodied red from winemaker Jeff Runquist comes from the Clarksburg American Viticultural Area (AVA) in the Sacramento River delta, just east of the San Francisco Bay Area. Fruit for this wine was sourced from Enver Salman Vineyards. Cooling coastal breezes and Bay Area fog tempered the AVA’s warm, sunny days. Following vinification, the wine was aged in 100 percent new French oak, adding a whiff of vanilla. The wine offers aromas of concentrated dark fruit, jammy blackberry and mocha with hints of cassis, black plum, anise, some earthiness and firm tannins. It’s ready to drink now, but petite sirahs often age well and can be cellared for 10 years or more. Decant an hour before serving for best flavor. Drink it with grilled meats, roast duck, wild game, burgers and pasta Bolognese. Buy it at: The Wine Seller and Dorignac’s. Drink it at: Pelican Club, Ste. Marie, Mr. B’s Bistro and Mr. John’s Steakhouse. — BRENDA MAITLAND

Open every day except Tuesday, the tap room will open at 2 p.m. during the week and 11 a.m. on weekends. The brewery plans to have a rotation of visiting food trucks and occasional live music. Jen Harvey, a New Orleans native and the tap room manager, says the tap room will have a sports bar theme “where people come to watch the games with their favorite brew in hand. For those headed to the games,” she says, “I will have our four- and six-pack cans available for purchase.” The brewery still will be offering its $5 tours on Fridays between 2 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. — NORA MCGUNNIGLE

what to know before you go

Southern Rep opens its season with a play about finding inspiration in art and life. By Brad Rhines


the Variations at the CAC at 1 p.m. Friday. Following 33 Variations, Southern Rep’s season features plays at different venues around the city. An adaptation of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice is scheduled at Ursuline Academy Nov. 13-24. In winter, Southern Rep moves to Mid-City Theatre for the world premiere (in conjunction with the National New Play Network) of The Totalitarians (Jan. 26, 2014-Feb. 23, 2014). San Francisco playwright Peter Nachtrieb’s gritty and dark comedy explores spin, manipulation and dishonesty in politics. The season concludes with Tennessee Williams’ The Night of the Iguana at Michalopoulos Studios (March 12, 2014-April 6, 2014), where Southern Rep staged A Streetcar Named Desire in 2012. “It was such a refreshing thing to leave our space because suddenly we were in neighborhoods,” Hayes says. “We were interacting with the people in those neighborhoods, and we just loved that.” After leaving its longtime home at the Shops at Canal Place in early 2012, Southern Rep spent last season in residence at the Contemporary Arts Center (CAC). Hayes says scheduling conflicts at the CAC resulted in the company performs at other venues. The theater’s notable recent productions at alternative venues include The Lily’s Revenge at the Den of Muses in Bywater. Hayes says the CAC was never meant to be a permanent home for Southern Rep. She sees this season as a chance to explore other venues as the theater searches for locations for Southern Rep’s future home, and she hopes their audience will come along for the ride. “We’ve gotten really good at it,” Hayes says. “You rent a truck it, you load it in. Every place has its unique attributes, and I think the designers, the actors, the director, everybody has to rise to that challenge, and that’s really thrilling for us.”

Phil Karnell (Beethoven) and Maggie Eldred (Katherine Brandt) star in Southern Rep’s production of 33 Variations. P H O T O BY J O H N B A R R O I S





33 Variations Previews 7:30 p.m. Wed.Fri.; opening night 7:30 p.m. Sat.; 2 p.m. Sun. Contemporary Arts Center, 900 Camp St. (504) 522-6545


outhern Repertory Theatre kicks off its season of recent and classic works with 33 Variations, a play exploring one of Beethoven’s later compositions — the acclaimed Diabelli Variations, exploring a simple waltz by little-known Austrian composer Anton Diabelli. 33 Variations debuted in 2007, and a production opened on Broadway in 2009, directed by author Moises Kaufman and starring Jane Fonda. Kaufman is a cofounder of Tectonic Theater Project (The Laramie Project), and he also wrote Gross Indecency: The Three Trials of Oscar Wilde. In 33 Variations, musicologist Katherine Brandt tries to discover why the legendary composer, who was coping with deteriorating health and growing deafness, devoted so many of his later years to the Diabelli Variations. Brandt suffers from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and as her health also fades, she struggles to maintain her relationship with her daughter and to find inspiration in Beethoven’s efforts and triumphs. The stories progress in parallel and eventually converge. “There’s a beautiful image of the past and the present where Beethoven and Dr. Brandt are together on stage,” says Southern Rep artistic director Aimee Hayes. “Seeing that image, it’s what we always strive for. That’s why we make theater, so we can connect to the past and the present, and we leave the audience with the idea of the future.” 33 Variations is co-produced by MESA Production Company, a nonprofit organization that combines artistic events and community outreach. Director and MESA cofounder Stacey Arton says that once the decision was made to produce 33 Variations, the next step was to look for community partners. Because the character Brandt has ALS, Arton said it was a natural fit to join forces with the ALS Association Louisiana-Mississippi Chapter and Team Gleason, the foundation created by former New Orleans Saints player Steve Gleason, who was diagnosed with ALS in 2011. Arton says that talking to members of the ALS Association gave her a new perspective on the drama, and she stresses that 33 Variations touches on, but is not about, ALS. “This play is about life,” says Arton. “Though it shows [Brandt’s] struggles, what the play is really about is how both she and Beethoven push past those struggles.” Several special events are being organized in conjunction with the play. Gleason will attend the Thursday preview, which honors people with ALS and their caregivers. Gleason also plans to attend a reception Sept. 20, when all proceeds from that night’s show are donated to ALS Association Louisiana-Mississippi Chapter and Team Gleason. Other events include a free performance of the Diabelli Variations at Loyola University (7:30 p.m. Thursday; Louis J. Roussel Performance Hall) by William Kinderman, a music scholar who consulted with Kaufman on 33 Variations from conception through production. Kinderman also will discuss and perform excerpts of

Car Wheels on a Gravel Road isn’t Lucinda 8 p.m. Sunday-Monday Williams’ debut, but to casual fans it might SEPT Tipitina’s as well be. It’s an album synonymous with a name, a commercial and critical break501 Napoleon Ave. through featuring A-list guests (Emmylou (504) 895-8477 Harris, Steve Earle), a fussed-over, recorded Exile on Main St. It’s likely also the first thing most people heard from Williams herself, who was still very much an outsider country singer upon its release in 1998. Lake Charles’ native daughter already had reached plenty of ears, of course, her caved-in vocals and lilting instrumentals becoming hits when filtered through other artists’ voices and instruments: Mary Chapin Carpenter’s Grammy-grabbing buffing of “Passionate Kisses,” Harris and Neil Young’s love exorcism on “Sweet Old World” (backed by Williams on guitar), Tom Petty’s honky-tonking “Changed the Locks.” She’s 60 now, and on her current tour — the 15th anniversary of her coming-out party — she’s been playing one record, start-to-finish, and it isn’t Gravel Road. New Orleans gets two shows, the second of which will feature plenty of that hallmark recording. The first is for “Crescent City” and “Side of the Road,” from the other album that should be synonymous with her name. It’s called Lucinda Williams. The Kenneth Brian Band opens.

Salinger (PG-13)

Timing is almost as important as content on those rare ocDirected by Shane Salerno casions when popular culture rises to world-changing effect. In 1951, J.D. Salinger’s novel The Catcher in the Rye became a Starring Philip Seymour Hoffman phenomenon for a world that didn’t know it was ready for someand Tom Wolfe thing new. The book questioned post-war conformity, reveled in Limited release subjective experience and captured the ways and language of young people just before the first explosion of youth culture in America. The Catcher in the Rye has sold 65 million copies as subsequent generations (especially in the 1960s) discovered it and claimed it as their own. It still sells a quarter of a million copies every year. And it has acquired a mystique thanks to Salinger, who published only three more books of stories before leaving New York City, exiling himself to a small town in New Hampshire, and refusing to publish anything more — even though he reportedly continued to write on a daily basis for almost 50 years before his death in 2010 at the age of 91. Times are different today. Pop culture seems to have little potential to change the world, if only because there are too many marketing professionals trying to make that happen. More often we get cultural ephemera like writer/director Shane Salerno’s documentary Salinger and its 698-page companion book. Previously known mainly for writing action movies like Armageddon, Salerno worked on Salinger for nine years, all while convincing the press he had penetrated the author’s inner circle to acquire startling revelations and therefore needed to shroud the project in total secrecy to preserve its impact. Salinger has its share of news about the author’s life and character — some of it credible, some not — but it’s all delivered in a sensationalistic and overblown style that Salinger himself would have found deeply distasteful. This is a terrible irony that undermines any chances the film had for substantive success. Early on, Salinger presents interviews with people including actor Philip Seymour Hoffman and author Tom Wolfe to attest to its subject’s artistic significance. Those with firsthand revelations mostly turn out to be rejected ex-girlfriends and — amazingly — stalkers who recount painful one-time encounters with their reclusive hero. Because there’s so little visual material available that relates to Salinger, the film employs endless reenactments that eventually dissolve into unintentional self-parody. Important subjects like Salinger’s traumatic and formative experiences in World War II combat are handled reasonably well, but Salinger throws that all away with a collage of young people from all over the world joyfully holding up their tattered copies of The Catcher in the Rye as if they’re in a soft drink commercial. At least this sequence helps explain Salinger’s welldocumented status as a misanthrope. There’s a primary “secret” revealed at the end of Salinger that reviewers have been asked not to divulge. Of course, this information has been widely reported over the last week or two, first by The New York Times. But buying a movie ticket to get your news hardly sounds like a good idea. That’s what the Internet is for. — KEN KORMAN

Bruce Jr. Does the Parades and Sunrise




Bruce Jr. Does the Parades: Color marker drawings by Bruce Davenport Jr. Sunrise: glass sculpture by Gene Koss Arthur Roger Gallery 432 Julia St. (504) 522-1999

Another Hurricane Katrina anniversary came and went, and once again global news organizations struggled to find new angles on an increasingly old story. This time, the BBC memorialized America’s megastorm by posting a video interview with New Orleans artist Dan Tague, whose prints of dollar bills folded into catchy messages like “Live Free or Die,” or, more darkly, “Trust No One,” were an indirect result of Katrina. Tague survived the floodwaters in Mid-City, where he used a pirogue to help stranded neighbors, but later found himself feeling aimless after the forced exodus. With his studio under water, he began folding dollar bills to pass the time. He eventually turned them into prints, which found their way into major museum collections, and the rest is history. The BBC piece is not only a great survivor story, it also provides an interesting angle on the role money plays in American culture. It was high school marching bands that Bruce Davenport Jr. missed most after the storm, and he responded by creating vivid color marker drawings of them surrounded by mobs of spectators, a series he began when many schools were still closed. The works seen here are simple yet obsessive, as what initially resemble avant-garde abstractions appear as neighborhood street scenes on closer inspection. Gene Koss’ nearby sculptures remind us of the way this city links the largely northern European populace of the upper Midwest to the rest of the world via the Mississippi River and the Gulf. Glass sculptor Koss grew up on a farm in Wisconsin and the verdant, if frosty, qualities of his home state inform his vision even now, as we see in Sunrise (pictured), which somehow distills the contours of the land, the light and the hand of man in a work that Koss says reflects, “the people who work the land and look up a valley at the Wisconsin ridges and hills as they toil.” — D.

11AM-4AM DAILY 504-587-3756

A newspaper newsroom is a perfect setting to have a large cast of characters reel off entertaining stories, banter and butt heads and delve into personal and professional intrigue. In Jim Fitzmorris’ A Truckload of Ink, the reporters’ and editors’ routine is upstaged when they are blindsided by the biggest story of the day: the drastic reduction of their own paper’s publishing and A Truckload of Ink operations. SEPT 7:30 p.m. Wed.-Sat. In the boisterous first half of Act 1, retiring editor Fintan University of New Orleans THRU (Bob Edes Jr.) regales reportSEPT Performing Arts Center ers with a war story and Robert E. Nims Theatre shares a bottle of whiskey on his last day in the office. 2000 Lakeshore Drive There are as many as 13 char(504) 280-7469 acters onstage as the younger reporters, most played by NOLA Project members, listen with one ear, attend to stories breaking at City Hall and chide their beloved colleague. There’s an air of nostalgia in Fintain’s tale as he talks about an era when public drunkenness didn’t disqualify a candidate for public office. Young political reporter Billie (Natalie Boyd) objects to traces of old-world political incorrectness, society pages writer Beatrice Bell (Leslie Castay) recalls one candidate’s cheap cologne, and contentious political columnist Bevin (A.J. Allegra) calls Fintan an old blowhard. Director Beau Bratcher so ably orchestrates the blitz of crosstalk, competing conversations and interruptions that at times it seems too quiet when everyone is listing to one speaker. Even though there are 14 characters, there is a clear sense of most of their personalities and how the changes affect them for better and worse. The entire cast does an admirable job making the workplace chaos convincing. A consulting outside “efficiency expert” (Tracey Collins) also is listening to the stories and is the occasional recipient of resentful barbs. When the reporters realize the paper is about to downsize, she helps articulate some of the criticisms offered about why the paper is in its current situation. The newspaper is unnamed, but it is New Orleans’ large daily newspaper, and many characters bear strong resemblances to people who worked at The Times-Picayune, although many plot points are wholly fictionalized, such as the drunken mayoral candidate. It’s an unavoidable pleasure, at least for someone working in local media, to separate fact from fiction. (One reporter left the paper to write for a TV show about a New Orleans neighborhood, echoing work done by Lolis Eric Elie. The food critic is offered a prestigious fellowship, as Brett Anderson was.) But everyone can enjoy the caustic asides various reporters make about New Orleans and its denizens, from the Knights of Comus to newly arrived hipsters. There is some irony to the fact that so much is voiced by actors who look more like young hipsters than mid-career reporters, a point underscored as many characters throw bags over a shoulder like bike messengers. Fitzmorris has written several recent works about contemporary New Orleans, including Urban Education Smackdown, about public schools, and From a Long Way Off, about post-Hurricane Katrina recovery. Truckload touches on politics and corruption, the changing makeup of the city and the plight of newspapers in the digital age. The latter isn’t an obituary but a wider debate corporate downsizing and technological change. And the play comes full circle, showing how individuals are affected by those changes. With fast-paced dialogue by astute and colorful characters, the play is very entertaining on the surface, and it’s engaging on a deeper level as it exposes the ways politics, business and journalism intersect. Newspaper journalism is sometimes called the first draft of history, and like many drafts, sometimes more perspective is required. Truckload could barely be any more timely or local a story, but it’s a remarkable and entertaining play that will likely hold up very well over time. — WILL COVIELLO

Dear New Orleans Job Guru, “I am a part-time estimator for a local construction company and they pay me as an independent contractor. A friend told me they should be paying me as an employee. I asked my supervisor and he said that since I work from home and email my estimates to the office I am an independent contractor. He also said that I signed a contract and that everyone else does it this way. As the Job Guru, do you know the answer?” — Ethan M., Slidell, LA Dear Ethan, You are smart to be checking into this, since it could make a big difference in your compensation and benefits. If your company has more than 50 employees, it could also have implications as to whether they must provide health insurance starting in 2014 under the Affordable Care Act. Misclassification of employees as independent contractors is a huge issue for the IRS. The U.S. Government Accountability Office estimated that 15% of Grant Cooper employers misclassified 3.4 million workers, costing the federal government $1.6 billion. As an employee, the employer must pay employment taxes and potentially certain benefits available to other employees, but as an Independent Contractor, you are simply paid as a service provider and receive a Form 1099-MISC, Miscellaneous Income each year. In that case, as you probably know, you have to pay your own employment taxes, expenses, and other benefits. You may also need to individually obtain certain licenses, permits, and insurance coverage. There can be, however, an upside to being an independent contractor. As an independent contractor, you would be able to control your own schedule, work for other companies, choose your own methods and equipment, hire others to assist you, and deduct various expenses on your taxes. Since I don’t know all of the particulars of your working arrangement, I cannot provide an informed opinion on your specific case. What I can definitely tell you, is that the fact that you work from home, that you signed a contract, that you are part-time, and that your supervisor says “everyone else does it this way” will have no sway with the IRS. The simple fact that you speak of the person as your “supervisor” indicates to me that you may actually be more of an employee. The IRS and courts have ruled that many people who work from home can be employees, particularly in today’s technological environment. Also, just as someone else running a red light won’t help you when you get stopped for the same thing, the fact that other construction companies may retain estimators as independent contractors will have no bearing on your situation. Also, signed contracts do not generally decide who is an employee and who is an independent contractor, nor does the fact that someone may be “part-time” have any bearing on their status as employees. To get a definitive ruling on your status, you (or your employer) can file Form SS-8, Determination of Worker Status for Purposes of Federal Employment Taxes and Income Withholding with the IRS. It can take six months or longer to get a ruling. Remember that a good relationship with the company is essential, so you should use your judgment as to how you proceed. Here are some of the tests and factors generally used in determining whether you are an employee or independent contractor:


• Does the company control or have the right to control what and how you do your job? • Does the company provide or prescribe your tools, supplies, expenses, or compensation methods? • Does the company control your schedule or working hours with the understanding that you may lose the “job” if you decide to be flexible? • Does the company forbid you to hire assistants or helpers and independently plan how you complete your duties? • Does the company give you specific instructions or steps, or retain the right to instruct you on how to get your job done? • Is your working relationship ongoing and is your work a key, essential aspect of the company’s everyday business operations?
