seven things to do in seven days

Curren$y Wed. Aug. 15 | Spitta’s nonstop record-releasing pace leaves most rappers gasping for breath. Meanwhile he’s probably lounging in a Ferrari with a bag of weed. In June, the New Orleans rapper — prone to psychedelic grooves and day-in-the-life wordplay — dropped The Stoned Immaculate, and his weekly Jet Lounge concerts Immaculate kicked off this month. At The Parish at House of Blues. Ticket $10-$15. PAGE 45. Shovels & Rope Wed. Aug. 15 | Carolinian singer/songwriter spouses Cary Ann Hearst and Michael Trent conjoin solo careers as Shovels & Rope, whose spurs-to-the-side July release O’ Be Joyful harmonizes like Loretta Lynn and snarls like Jack White. MyNameIsJohnMichael and Folk Family Revival open at One Eyed Jacks. PAGE 45.

Rotary Downs Fri. Aug. 17 | Local indie rockers Rotary Downs emerge from a summer of recording at Marigny Studios and have added Alex Smith (World Leader Pretend, Theresa Andersson) to its lineup. The album, its sixth, drops in early 2013. Catch the band at d.b.a. PAGE 45.

The Bourne Legacy | Summer action adventures continue with the fourth installment in the Bourne series, The Bourne Legacy. Jeremy Renner stars as Aaron Cross, a super agent wrapped up in his own battle with intelligence agencies. Tony Gilroy, writer of the three previous films starring Matt Damon, writes and directs this installment, featuring the same frenzied pace, stunts and intricate espionage twists Bourne fans expect. PAGE 52.

The Love Sessions Sat.-Wed. Aug. 18-29 | Irvin Mayfield’s concert series benefiting local nonprofits kicks off Saturday at the Jazz Playhouse at the Royal Sonesta. The first week features nightly trumpet duels between Mayfield and Kermit Ruffins. On Aug. 25, the series moves to the JW Marriott’s I Club and features Mayfield and Dee Dee Bridgewater. Each evening benefits a different local community organization. PAGE 45. Fang Island Mon. Aug. 20 | Graduating summa cum loudly thanks to 2010’s self-titled, righteous and rightly aggrandizing debut, these Rhode Island School of Design power-chord cheerleaders bring it on again with July follow-up Major. Adebisi Shank and All People open at the Parish at House of Blues. PAGE 45.

The 48 Hour Film Project showcase Thu. Aug. 16 | Last weekend, 42 teams competed to make seven-minute films. Given a genre, character, line of dialogue and a prop, they had to write, shoot and edit the entire piece in less than 48 hours. The completed films screen in three groups at The Prytania Theatre. Winning films and awards will be announced next week, and the top film goes to Filmapalooza, the international competition for 48 Hour films. PAGE 45.

John White,

Louisiana’s superintendent of education, won’t release records showing how schools were chosen to participate in Gov. Bobby Jindal’s new statewide voucher program. White’s department is claiming a “deliberative process privilege” — the same ruse often cited by Jindal to hide records from public view. White says he will release the records in September, after voucher assignments are final. He claims that releasing the records sooner might “confuse” parents. More likely it would show how inadequate the department’s vetting process was.

THiS WeeK’S question:

Do you think Mayor Mitch Landrieu will have a serious challenger in his bid for re-election?

Gambit > bestofneworleans.com > auGust 14 > 2012

At a July 24 press conference, where local and federal officials unveiled the proposed consent decree, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder described the agreement as “the most wideranging” in DOJ history. The decree, which will not be finalized until an Aug. 29 hearing before U.S. District Court Judge Susie Morgan (at the earliest), calls for overhauls in nearly every corner of the long-troubled police department. It requires rewritten policies on officer use of force, stops-and-searches, interrogations, recruitment, mental health crisis intervention and off-duty paid detail shifts (which will now be called “secondary employment”). “Is it going to cost more?” Landrieu asked at the briefing, before answering, “About $11 million more per year for the next five years.” It will mean new personnel, including a staff for the Office of Police Secondary Employment (a City Hall-based office, which had started to take shape even before July 24, that will oversee details), a full-time curriculum director for the Police Academy, an officer in-service training and an IT staff. Add to that new equipment and software (including cameras in all police cars), a personnel “early warning” database to detect patterns of “problematic behavior” among officers, improvements to data storage — and oversight by a federal monitor, who also will have

By Charles Maldonado s the City of New Orleans’ 2013 budget process begins in earnest, with community meetings in each of the five City Council districts starting this week, there are signs that city departments may be headed into an unusually difficult year. In July, Mayor Mitch Landrieu reported the city is projecting $13 million in revenue shortfalls for the current year. Chief Administrative Officer Andy Kopplin already has taken action to address the shortfall, holding back about 4 percent of each department’s budget for discretionary spending and requesting about $5 million in cuts. In late July, the city added another $11 million to its projected 2013 budget problem. That’s the estimated cost of the 124-page, 492-point proposed consent decree between the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) and the New Orleans Police Department (NOPD). But so far there are only estimates of what items in the agreement will cost the city $11 million a year. Even less clear this early in the budget process is how the additional costs will impact the rest of the municipal budget for 2013, including the budget for the police department.

spokesman Ryan Berni told Gambit via email that the firm was hired through the city’s competitive selection process based on its relevant subject matter expertise, and that the cost was budgeted for in 2012 in the city attorney’s office.) Berni provided some initial numbers on major consent-decree costs between 2013 and 2017. Of the $55 million, five-year total, three components represent more than $40 million. The largest chunk — $19.75 million — will go to the early warning system deployment. The next highest number — $12 million — will fund setting up and maintaining interdepartmental crime information-sharing programs. The monitor’s office is projected to cost $10 million. Other programs are expected to cost far less. The Office of Secondary Employment, which will be funded at least in part by officer fees, is marked down for $2.8 million. The DOJ has indicated that grants may be available to offset some items, but no specifics have been made available yet. Ultimately, City Hall (read: taxpayers) is responsible for all additional costs. Those new costs will have a huge impact on the budget of an already financially challenged city. The city’s 2012 budget — prior to the 4 percent holdbacks announced by Kopplin — included reductions of 5 percent to 10 percent in nearly every department, though fewer than 100 positions were eliminated. Asked how the cost to implement the consent decree will affect normal city expenditures or personnel, city officials say it’s too early to speculate. “We have basically seen what you have seen, what’s coming from the DOJ and the administration. We’re going to go through the budget process,” said Danielle Viguerie, spokeswoman for Councilwoman at-Large Stacy Head. “We haven’t been given any further details as far as the accounting or where the money is coming from or anything like that.” Regarding the general budget impact, Berni likewise said the city is too early in the process to provide hard numbers. “Like anything else, we’re ... looking for federal support. And, like any other item we tack on the budget, we’re looking at cuts, reorganizations and investments,” he said. “Again, I think it’s early, but that’s been our budgeting principle since we’ve been here.” Despite cuts in other city departments, NOPD saw a budget increase of $10 million in 2012, from $109 to $119 million. The consent decree seems likely to push NOPD’s budget up again in 2013. Meanwhile, cops worry the increases will come mainly via contracts, services and technology mandated by the DOJ, says Ray Burkart, attorney for the New Orleans Fraternal Order of Police (FOP), the largest of the city’s three officer associations. FOP was one of four parties that went to federal court last week asking to intervene in the consent-decree case. The Police Association of New Orleans, the Office of the Independent Police Monitor and the citizens’ group Community United for Change each filed its own motion to intervene. As reasons for intervening, all cited concerns about the effects of the agreement as written, along with demands to be involved in finalizing the decree (which had been negotiated by the city, NOPD and the DOJ). “With regard to the budget, our position is, let’s prioritize,” says Burkart, who was a police officer before becoming an attorney for FOP. “Let’s look at what’s truly necessary.” To FOP, that’s manpower, increased recruitment as well as curbing the department’s attrition rate to keep the officers NOPD has. “We’re at about 1,317 today, but that number changes every day,” Police Chief Ronal Serpas said in a City Council meeting earlier this summer. “We’ve lost about 46 or 47 people so far this year at the halfway point.” The city has reopened its Police Academy, graduating its first class in two years last week. That class had 28 recruits. Burkart worries that the department, burdened with the added costs of the proposed consent decree, will fall further behind in personnel. New Orleans Independent Police Monitor Susan Hutson, who wants an official voice and larger role for her office in consent decree implementation, worked for the Los Angeles Police Department’s (LAPD) Office of Inspector General from 2007-2010. For her first two years, LAPD was operating under a federal consent decree, which was in force from 2001-2009. That department’s experience might make New Orleans officers more optimistic about recruiting efforts, she says.

    “It was always a priority for the city administration in Los Angeles.  So they built and built until they got to almost 10,000 (officers),” Hutson says. “It was always a priority that you had enough officers on the  street to combat the gang problem out there.”     The NOPD consent decree, as drafted, sets out a strategy for more  effective recruitment but doesn’t specify a minimum adequate number of officers, Burkart noted. And while it instructs the department  to “develop and implement fair and consistent promotions practices,”  it doesn’t mandate more frequent opportunities for promotions. In  its March 2011 investigation into NOPD, which foreshadowed the  consent decree, the DOJ recommended more frequent promotion  exams for officers.      “None of it. None of it is in there,” Burkart says. “And that’s what’s  so troubling about the consent decree.”     Berni says the Landrieu Administration does not intend to pay for  these added costs by compromising safety. “I think the mayor’s been  committed, and we’ve seen in our budgets a commitment to funding  the Police Department — and public safety, for that matter,” he says.      Then there’s the issue of spiraling costs, a problem endemic to  police departments in other cities that have been under consent decrees. According to media reports from 2000 and 2001, the LAPD’s  consent decree initially was slated to cost between $30 and $50  million a year. More recent estimates show the actual expenses on the  high end of that estimate.     “Los Angeles reports that it spent approximately $40 million in the  first year to comply with the terms of a federal consent decree, and  close to $50 million annually for several years thereafter,” reads a May  2012 memorandum from the city of Seattle, which was negotiating its  own DOJ consent decree. Seattle reached a deal with the DOJ in late  July. Its consent decree is estimated to cost $40 million in its first year.     Despite some ongoing problems, the LAPD is seen as a consent  decree success story. A 2011 examination by The Times-Picayune pointed to overall decreases in Los Angeles crime and LAPD uses  of force and excessive force complaints. LAPD officials credited the  agreement’s system of internal checks for the improvements.     Other cities have seen overages not just in budgets, but also in timing; consent decrees often are open-ended and can last longer than  anticipated. Both Oakland, Calif., and Detroit began five-year consent  decrees in 2003, and both cities still have them in effect.     Detroit spent $10 million on a monitor who was discovered to be having an affair with then-mayor Kwame Kilpatrick. The monitor was fired  in 2009, and the city is suing the monitor. In Oakland, an April article  by The Bay Citizen says the city spent $20 million on monitoring and  “hundreds of thousands of dollars to build a crucial computer program  that tracks use-of-force and arrest data, [but] the department has now  concluded it needs to be replaced.” The article notes the Oakland  Police Department has lost more than 200 officers since 2009.       “There could be unanticipated costs,” Hutson says. “You have to  have cameras in all the cars. So suppose there are some additional  technological requirements that will allow the NOPD to monitor  that, to have the computers in stations to look at what’s going on in  the car? Maybe they’ve looked through all that, figured all that out. I’m  just not sure.”     Administration officials do not believe problems in other cities will  be repeated here.     “I would say that we absolutely intend to comply with the consent  decree in the timeline,” Berni said. “Some of those items continue  to cost money as it’s formally adopted. For five years, these are the  majority of the costs that are mandated under the consent decree.”     Burkart said uncertainty as to final costs was one of the major  reasons his group has asked to intervene.     “What does the federal government care about a state civil service  system that doesn’t just affect the police?” Burkart says. “It affects the  Fire Department and EMS and people in finance. We don’t know how  much this is going to cost. As a lawyer, I would never advise a client to  have that many variables and then bind himself to a judgment, unless I  knew all this and had it in writing.”      Berni responded by saying the administration’s priority is making long-anticipated changes at NOPD. City government hopes for  significant federal assistance, he said, but added, “The mayor made  the commitment to transform the Police Department and provide the  resources that are necessary to transform the department.”

LA. FAMILY FORUM gRAdes stAte LAwMAkeRs     The Louisiana Family Forum  (LFF), the self-described “family values” organization that holds major  sway over lawmakers in heavily conservative parishes, has released its  annual legislative scorecard, which  it calls a “Family Security Advisory,”  gauging legislators’ votes in the  recently concluded session.     On the Senate side, 12 lawmakers scored a perfect 100 percent,  earning the title “Outstanding Family  Advocate.” Five were from the New  Orleans metro area: Sens. Conrad Appel, R-Metairie; A.G. Crowe, RSlidell; Jack Donahue, R-Mandeville; Danny Martiny, R-Metairie; and  David Heitmeier, D-New Orleans.  Two local state senators — Ed Murray, D-New Orleans, and Karen Carter Peterson, D-New Orleans,  earned the designation “Hostile.”      It was much the same in the  House, where the local 100 percenters included Reps. Cameron Henry, R-Metairie; Paul Hollis,  R-Covington; Kevin Pearson, RSlidell; John Schroder, R-Covington; Tim Burns, R-Mandeville; Greg Cromer, R-Slidell; and Raymond Garofalo, R-Chalmette. The only  metro state representative to earn  a “Hostile” rating from the LFF was  Rep. Jared Brossett, D-New Orleans. It’s worth noting that Republicans tend to score higher with the  LFF while Democrats tend to score  poorly. Heitmeier was the lone local  exception among Democrats.     Peterson — who is the head of  the state Democratic party — responded to her “Hostile” rating by  telling Gambit, “I’m very proud of  my record on families: I put families  first by not hiking tuition annually  on college students; by fighting to  give women equal pay for equal  work; and by authoring legislation to  expand health care accessibility and  affordability. Fighting for working  families who are struggling with  [Gov. Bobby] Jindal’s sustained  campaign of privatization and service cuts is what I do every day.      “Furthermore, I believe in the 


news + views Golden Rule, something the Family Forum doesn’t always espouse,” Peterson added. “Lastly, i do not believe in discriminating against people for any reason.” The LFF graded each state lawmaker on his or her vote on 10 bills the organization deemed significant to its fundamentalist agenda. On the House scorecard, four of the votes had to do with public schools, while two were abortion-related bills. The others included a law regarding video poker, of which the LFF noted, “This bill was a part of a three-bill series that would have expanded gambling in the state. Governor Jindal vetoed all three bills at LFF’s request.” The last bill on the list prohibited state tax credits from being used for pornographic films, which passed 95-0 in the House. — Kevin ALLmAn

sound on circle Bar oK’d once again For live music perFormances A week after new Orleans City Hall pulled the plug on the Circle Bar’s concert calendar, the bar received its live entertainment permit and live music returned to the Lee Circle staple. The bar (as well as the st. Claude Avenue club siberia) was targeted by the city’s Department of Revenue last month. Circle Bar co-owner Dave Clements couldn’t produce the bar’s live entertainment permit and was denied when he reapplied for a new one. On Aug. 1, Clements scrapped the live music schedule, and that weekend more than 50 musicians gathered at the bar to sign affidavits showing their support that the bar could present to the city. On Aug. 9, the city’s Office of safety and Permits and the Department of Revenue approved a live entertainment permit. The staff was “cooperative, nice and professional” in helping him through the permit process, Clements said. Despite some criticism aimed at the city for its scrutiny of entertainment licenses, Clements told Gambit that he thought “there did not seem [to be] a concerted effort to squash live music.” — ALeX wOODwARD

Former city councilman to attend sports conFerence in n.o. Former new Orleans City Councilman Arnie Fielkow, who decamped for Chicago last year, will return to new Orleans later this month in his new role as CeO of the national Basketball Retired Players Association (nBRPA). Fielkow will join several former basketball stars, including Spencer Haywood, Cedric Ceballos, and Louisiana sports Hall of Famer Aaron James, for the three-day “Legends world sports Conference” at the Royal sonesta Hotel Aug. 17-19. Fielkow resigned his council seat in 2011 (less than a year after being elected for his second term) to take a position as the head of the nBRPA. while Fielkow says he was sorry to leave new Orleans, he told Gambit last week by phone that he does not regret making the decision. “my time in City Council was the most rewarding time ever, but my background is in sports,” he said. “The beauty of my position now is that it’s a combination of sports and public service.” Fielkow and nBRPA members will perform services around the community throughout the weekend. They will present a $25,000 gift to help renovate the basketball courts at Oliver Bush Playground. The group also will visit new Orleans Children’s Hospital and host a free youth basketball clinic. At the conference, Fielkow will announce plans for the “Jack Fielkow new Orleans Recreation scholarship,” which will award two $2,000 scholarships to local youth in honor of Fielkow’s late father. — mATTHew HOse

(ACLU). The school’s handbook stated that pregnant students (and students even suspected of being pregnant) would be subject to a pregnancy test from a school-selected physician. Pregnant students and students who refused to be tested would be home-schooled or counseled for other “education opportunities.” The ACLU of Louisiana sent a letter to administrators at the school demanding they rescind the policy, writing that it violates Title iX of the education Amendments of 1972, a federal law prohibiting sex discrimination in schools and programs receiving federal funds. (As a Louisiana charter school, Delhi also would receive taxpayer dollars under Gov. Bobby Jindal’s new voucher system.) According to statistics provided by the ACLU, 70 percent of teen girls who give birth end up dropping out of school, mostly because of discrimination-based school policies. Louisiana Department of education policy director Michael Higgins also wrote a letter demanding the school rescind the policy by Aug. 16, adding, “Under no circumstances shall the school require any student to take a pregnancy test.” On Aug. 8, Delhi Charter school agreed, striking the requirement. it was the latest bit of bad publicity for Jindal’s much-touted voucher program, which has come under fire in recent weeks on a variety of fronts, from some schools’ possible use of creationistinspired science textbooks to vouchers awarded to schools without the current infrastructure for an influx of students. — ALeX wOODwARD

A Black-and-Golden Era

Gambit > bestofneworleans.com > auGust 14 > 2012

n the 1980s, when Gambit had just emerged on the scene in New Orleans, our first sports columnist was a familiar name: Buddy Diliberto. Buddy D’s opinions and observations on the New Orleans Saints, and other topics, were loud, colorful, homegrown and sometimes even outrageous — but they were pure New Orleans to the core, whether they were delivered on the radio, on TV or in the pages of this newspaper. Like the city’s two most famous exports — food and music — the subject of sports means many things to many people in New Orleans. It’s entertainment; it’s news; it’s big business; it’s a tourist attraction; and it’s part of the collective DNA of the city. Since the days of Buddy D in print and bagheads in the Superdome, sports have become even more tightly woven into the physical, economic and emotional lives of New Orleanians. From the reopening of the Superdome in September 2006 with a thrilling victory against the hated Atlanta Falcons (and Steve Gleason’s electrifying punt-block now immortalized in a statue outside the Dome), to the team’s Super Bowl victory to cap the 2009-2010 season, the past seven years have been a golden era in Black and Gold history. Now, with a bounty scandal hanging over

12

the Saints’ heads like a Sword of Damocles, head coach Sean Payton suspended for one year, and a quarterback who just became the most highly compensated player in the NFL, the Saints are more newsworthy, more entertaining, more economically significant and more a part of New Orleans life than ever. For all those reasons, there’s never been a better time to bring back a weekly sports column to the pages of Gambit. Starting with this issue, Gus Kattengell joins Gambit as a contributing writer with a

coverage on WWL-AM. He has won two regional Edward R. Murrow Awards from the Radio-Television News Directors Association for Sports Feature and several Louisiana Associated Press awards for Best Sportscast and Sports Story in the state. There will never be another Buddy D, of course, but, like him, “G-Katt” is both a passionate fan and an objective observer of the Saints. Also like Buddy, Kattengell has extensive experience reporting on the team in print, on radio and on TV.

Sports are woven into the physical, economic and emotional lives of New Orleanians. new weekly column, “The Spiral.” A graduate of Brother Martin High School and a broadcast journalism major at the University of Southern Mississippi, Kattengell grew up in New Orleans’ sports culture. He’s currently the co-host of The Sports Hangover, a weekday sports show on WIST-AM, and the co-host of pre- and post-game radio broadcasts of Tulane University football. Before that, Kattengell was the sideline reporter for the Saints Radio Network and contributed to sports

He’s a whiz at social media (friend him on Facebook and follow him on Twitter at @ Gkatt_17). Kattengell will provide reports from training camp, pre- and post-game wraps and breaking Saints news on the Blog of New Orleans. We’re happy to welcome him to the ranks of our sports correspondents — he joins writer Alejandro de los Rios and photographer Jonathan Bachman — who were responsible for the words and images in this week’s cover story, “The $100 Million Man” (p.19).

Of course, the Saints are not the only sports story in New Orleans. There’s quite a buzz (pardon the pun) about the Hornets these days, thanks to the team’s two firstround draft picks, Kentucky (and Olympic) standout Anthony Davis and Duke’s star shooting guard Austin Rivers. Beyond the Saints and Hornets, New Orleans continues to prove its mettle as America’s greatest host city. We’ll host the next Super Bowl on Feb. 3, 2013, the NCAA Women’s Final Four on April 7 and 9, 2013, and the NBA All Star Game on Feb. 16, 2014. Jay Cicero, president of the Greater New Orleans Sports Foundation, has estimated Super Bowl XLVII in New Orleans will have a $434 million impact on the city. It’s such a momentous occasion that the first week of Carnival parades in 2013 will be moved up a week to accommodate the game. And if — make that when — the Saints win their second Super Bowl, they’ll become the NFL’s first team to win the Lombardi Trophy in their home stadium. It’s safe to say that the three weeks encompassing Super Bowl and Mardi Gras 2013 will make the Lombardi Gras parade of 2010 look as sedate as a game of croquet. We’re looking forward to covering every minute of it.

The Gospel of lucas ow it happened that at this time Caesar Piyush issued a decree that vouchers should be made available to every undereducated child in the land. These vouchers — the first — were issued while many public schools in Louisiana were failing, and so every prophet with an eye for profit went to enroll as many students as possible, each in his own parish. They came to Baton Rouge from all corners of the state to apply for vouchers, so that their empty classrooms and their dwindling bank accounts might be fattened. And they were not disappointed, for Piyush showered his faithful with vouchers like manna in the desert. No one knew from whence these vouchers came, for they appeared as if in the night, and Piyush refused to answer any man who questioned his purposes or his decisions, and he commanded his voucher procurator, John, likewise to bear no inquiries. Now at that time there arose in the 9th Ward a prophet named Lucas, who called himself The Apostle. He proclaimed that

the Lord had spoken to him, telling him, “I bring you news of great joy. Today in the town of Baton Rouge there are thousands of taxpayer-funded vouchers available for you to enroll children in your shabby little school. Go forth and obtain your share, for they will lead you to the land of milk and honey.” Lucas did as the Lord commanded him, and the Lord made smooth his path to obtain 80 vouchers from Piyush and John, though Lucas had requested more than twice that number. But Lucas saw that it was good. And prophetable. “I am truly The Apostle,” he proclaimed. “suffer your little children unto me, and I will make them whold.” Now the scribes were suspicious of Lucas, and they tried to trick him with their questions. one of them, Dambala, asked, “How is it that you got 80 vouchers when your school has only 53 students?” Another, Cenlamar, said, “Why do you run so many nonprofits, and why are so many of them not in good standing with the state?” Then they both

‘I am truly The Apostle. Suffer your little children unto me, and I will make them whold.’ — The Prophet Lucas asked, “What does it mean to make a child whold?” But Lucas dismissed them, saying, “Do not put The Apostle to the test, for I do not fare well on tests. And besides, I am too busy wearing the mantle of an Apostle and Prophet and mentoring men and women effectively in the prophetic.” And he went away into the swamp to pray, and to ponder how much 80 vouchers times $4,555 per student in taxpayerfunded tuition would bring him.

And while he was in the swamp, the Lord spoke to him again, saying, “Do not mind the scribes. Just get those vouchers and I will make of you a great corporation. stick with me and your nonprofits will be more numerous than the stars in the sky.” once more Lucas did as the Lord commanded, and when he returned to the 9th Ward, his cup ranneth over. With the vouchers that had been bestowed upon him by Caesar Piyush and John, The Apostle stood to take in more than $360,000 in taxpayer funds. And he proclaimed, “All children under my tutelage will learn how to hear from God, how to speak the mind of God, and how to nurture the gift of prophecy — all at taxpayer expense.” And even though the scribes were not satisfied, Lucas prospered and was made whold, which was more than could be said of the children. But, as he prophesied, the children did suffer unto him. He was indeed a prophet.

Hey Blake,

While walking my pooches along Palmer Avenue I noticed drain covers that called the street Henry Clay. I also noticed some cross streets such as Marquette also had drain covers with street names other than what’s on the street signs. When and why were the street names changed, and who was this Palmer person who apparently outranked the Great Compromiser? Pat Gallaher Dear Pat, Every once in a while, the New Orleans City Council finds a reason to change the names of streets. Sometimes it’s to avoid confusion caused by duplication; sometimes it’s to honor someone who was deemed worthy of having a street named for him or her. Both streets where you walk your dogs were renamed for the latter reason. Marquette Place, a short street that runs into Loyola University, originally was part of Saratoga Street. It was renamed on Aug. 8, 1906, to honor the Jesuit explorer Fr. Jacques Marquette, also known as Pere Marquette, and the Jesuits who founded the university.

Questions for Blake: askblake@gambitweekly.com

NEW OrLEANS know-it-all

In 1886, the Jesuits bought a huge tract of land Uptown, and in May 1890, the parish of Most Holy Name of Jesus was founded. In 1904, Loyola University was established as Loyola College. The first classes were held in a residence on what now is Marquette Place. Construction on Marquette Hall, a centerpiece of the Loyola campus, was competed in 1910. Also in the Uptown neighborhood was the small faubourg of Dominique Francois Burthe, called Burtheville, founded in 1854. Burthe named the streets in his subdivision Webster, Henry Clay and Calhoun in memory of three great men who had died recently: Daniel Webster and Clay in 1852, and John Calhoun in 1850. In 1934, the part of Henry Clay Avenue that runs toward the lake from St. Charles Avenue became Palmer Avenue, in honor of Benjamin Morgan Palmer, who came to New Orleans from South Carolina in 1856 to serve as pastor of the First Presbyterian Church on Lafayette Square. Palmer was a powerful minister and very influential. He is most remembered for a sermon delivered on Thanksgiving, Nov. 29, 1860, in which he came out in favor of slavery and called for Louisiana to secede from the Union. He also spoke out against the Louisiana

Lottery, operated by ex-Confederate Gen. P.G.T. Beauregard in 1891-92. Palmer’s powerful oration helped end the lottery. Palmer Park, at the intersection of Carrollton and South Claiborne avenues, initially was called Hamilton Square. In 1902, it was renamed in honor of the minister who died that year, 20 days after being struck by a streetcar. Palmer also had a public school named for him for a while, but it was renamed to commemorate author Lorraine Hansberry.

Loyola's Marquette Hall, like the nearby street Marquette Place, was named for the French explorer who helped found the university.

THE SPIRAL

Getting the Job Done month before the New Orleans Saints regular season kicks off, it’s hard not to hear or read an NFL analyst talking head predicting doom. Chaos. I simply don’t see it. The Saints have established proven leadership, upgraded talent and are supported by a loyal fan base that’ll dress up as whistles, clergy, video games, presidents and even Moses. Sean Payton may not be with the team in body, but his fingerprints are all over the organization like powdered sugar on a beignet. Walk into the team’s indoor practice facility and above you hangs a giant photo of Payton glaring down from upon high, headset on, eyes squinted, lips pursed, with the legend “DO YOUR JOB.” “It’s a little bit creepy, but if you look at that face — I mean, that’s Sean,” says receiver Lance Moore. Payton may not be around to call the shots, but the Saints have experienced coaches at the ready. Joe Vitt, who will lead the team this season, has more than 30 years of experience. Offensive coordinator Pete Carmichael has been with quarterback Drew Brees since Brees’ days in San Diego; last season, Carmichael was the play caller a majority of the year after Pay-

ton’s knee injury. New defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo helped win a Super Bowl with his defense in New York, and is coming from a head coach slot in St. Louis. The Saints are still a very talented team. Last season, Brees’ offense was the most prolific in NFL history and returns almost entirely intact. The defense may actually be better — thanks to a new philosophy and additional talent. Spagnuolo’s defense, which now features four first-round draft picks on the defensive line with the addition of defensive tackle Brodrick Bunkley, will focus on creating pressure upfront, with the goal of allowing the secondary to make more plays on the ball and provide better coverage. Linebacker Curtis Lofton was plucked from the hated Atlanta Falcons, weakening them, stepping in nicely at middle linebacker. Linebacker David Hawthorne is an upgrade. Asked how the team will fare without Payton, Brees says, “The fact of the matter is the pieces have been put in place in this organization since ’06 to withstand anything that would come our way. You create the environment, the culture of the belief and faith … so that you can weather any storm that will come your way.”

Sean Payton may not be with the team in body, but his fingerprints are all over the organization like powdered sugar on a beignet. That word, storm, resonates like no other around these parts. Hurricane Katrina and the Saints’ success in the year after the federal floods are joined at the hip. “I think we were, in a lot of cases, carried by the emotions and the spirit of the city and everybody coming off of Katrina,” Brees remembers. “Here we are six years later, and we’ve established ourselves as one of the contenders in this league. That each and every year, when people see the New Orleans Saints on their calendar that they need to get their mind right, because we’re a team that believes we can win every time we step on the field.” The city rose on the back of its football team during that 2006 season as the Saints inspired us, represented us and showed our resiliency. Now it seems the favor is ready to be returned as the fans appear eager to help carry the team on their backs.

The Black and Gold faithful are up in arms feeling their team has been unjustly punished by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell — who may need presidential-level protection the next time he visits the city. “This city really has, it seems, an ‘everybody is against us’ [attitude],” says Saints safety Roman Harper. “Nobody really expects us to do much so it makes [it] even better for us.” It’s kind of what New Orleans is all about. You doubt us, we prove you wrong. You take on one of us, you got us all. The Saints have every reason to fail this season — which is why they appear eager to prove they can finish the job of winning the 2013 Super Bowl on their home turf. — Listen to Gus Kattengell weekdays from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. on WIST 690 AM’s “The Sports Hangover.”

IS DREW BREES WORTH THE MONEY?

PLUS FOUR MORE QUESTIONS LOOMING OVER THE NEW ORLEANS SAINTS’ 2012 SEASON.

W

hen you combine Drew Brees’ salary ($3 million), most recent signing bonus (a whopping $37 million) and endorsements ($5 million), his payday lands him third on Sports Illustrated’s list of the most highly paid athletes in the world — earning a half-million dollars more than LeBron James and nearly $7 million more than Peyton Manning. But with the New Orleans Saints fighting the perception BY ALEJANDRO that they’re cheats, and their head coach, general manager and star linebacker in exile, Brees’ price tag could have been so much more. Now he carries the weight of a franchise and a region on his shoulders as he tries to become the first quarterback to lead his team to a Super Bowl in the team’s hometown stadium. The question has to be asked: How much is Drew Brees really worth? His contract and endorsement value can’t be the only measure. Not for New Orleans’ only

Super Bowl MVP quarterback. Not after the Who Dat Nation pulled out its collective hair during the five-plus months the Saints dawdled on Brees’ contract. And certainly not when a pay-for-play controversy has cost the Saints their head coach, assistant head coach and general manager for all or part of the season. How do you measure the worth of a man who has remained a true and constant positive force on a team surrounded by so much turmoil? Every Saints fan knows the Brees-New Orleans redemption story by heart. But let’s not forget that there was a time when Brees was just a very good with a history of losing in the playoffs. Even when DE LOS RIOS quarterback his team was struggling to an 8-8 record, however, Brees and his wife Brittany were investing in a schoolyard garden at Samuel J. Green Charter School through their Brees Dream Foundation. It’s only one story of the quarterback’s largesse. Looking back through his college’s student newspaper, Purdue University’s The Exponent, you see the makings of the man New Orleanians know and love today. At a July 2000 Big Ten press conference, the paper reported he was “overwhelmingly the most popular football player present” and he was “surrounded by a swarm of journalists.” That

kind of adulation could get to a college senior’s head, yet just four months after having a street named after him and three days before he was selected in the second round of the 2001 NFL Draft, Brees was playing in a charity basketball game benefiting a fellow Purdue athlete’s youth center. It’s a wonder the Saints took so long to sign Brees to a long-term deal. There was nothing the Saints or anyone else could do about “Bountygate” and the judgment handed down by National Football League commissioner Roger Goodell. But the Saints clearly controlled their own fate in regard to signing Brees to a long-term contract. In retrospect, penning a $100 million contract to keep Brees in New Orleans seems so obvious that it’s hardly a shock that the final moments of the deal happened so quickly. “Obviously it’s been a long process to this point,” Brees said to Bobby Hebert and Kristian Garic on WWL-AM soon after signing his deal. “Once we were here, it was ‘bam, bam, bam’ — and then we were done.”

It’s a testament to Brees’ worth as a player that despite the drawn-out contract negotiations, snipes delivered through the media and the NFL’s general business slog that Brees was ready to get back to work as soon as he signed his new deal. When training camp started, there was the same old Brees, zipping passes to receivers, buying sno-balls for teammates and fans and playing with his young sons after practice. He was nearly flawless in the Saints’ opening preseason win against

the Arizona Cardinals Aug. 5. If anything, Brees may be working harder than before. “I take it as a huge responsibility,” he told Hebert and Garic about his new salary. “I’ve got to go out every day and earn it and show people why you’re at that level.” So far, there’s no doubt Brees has been worth every penny. But how will the bountygate suspensions affect the team? The easy answer is that the Saints have such wellcoached players that the seasonlong loss of coach Sean Payton won’t affect them at all going forward. After the Saints’ win over Arizona, a reporter asked running back Pierre Thomas what it felt like not having Payton on the sidelines. “It felt the same,” Thomas answered. Of course, we’re just two preseason games into the year, and Thomas had just had a brief opportunity to see his suspended coach during the NFL Hall of Fame ceremonies in Canton, Ohio, the day before the Arizona matchup. But there’s really no telling what effect Payton’s absence will have on the Black and Gold. For all the leadership and skill Brees brings to the field, Payton has been the one who instilled the aggressive attitude that has come to define the Saints offense in recent years. There’s no doubt Brees knows how to call his offense and isn’t afraid to look downfield, but will interim head coach Joe Vitt or defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo (who likely will take the head coaching responsibilities during the six games Vitt

serves his own suspension) have the same fearlessness Payton had in tight situations? Vitt has some experience calling games from the field after Payton broke his leg last season. But the head coach still attended every game and was in a booth, a radio call away from Vitt and Brees, at all times. Spagnuolo also has head coaching experience, but his 10-38 record in three seasons with the St. Louis Rams is more indicative of why he’s back to defensive coordinator than of his play-calling prowess. The bottom line: Payton is the man who went for an onside kick to start the second half of the Super Bowl. Do Spagnuolo and Vitt have the stones to make the same sort of call? Only time will tell. Spagnuolo, though, will have more on his plate than just calling plays the first six weeks of the season. Which brings us to our next question. How will Spags change the Saints’ defense? This really should be the greatest concern for the Who Dat Nation because — with or without Payton — it’s a good bet the Saints won’t lose games because of their offense. At least, not in the way the Black and Gold lost last season’s divisional playoff game against the San Francisco 49ers. San Francisco exposed the Saints’ defense as being too slow up the middle and taking too many chances with a suspect secondary. Aside from Malcolm Jenkins and Jabari Greer, the Saints are starved for proven PAGE 22

young talent among defensive backs. Roman Harper is coming off one of his worst seasons (as far as missed tackles are concerned) and the rest of the Saints secondary is filled with young, inexperienced players. On top of that, Jonathan Vilma’s suspension means the Saints come into this season with three brand-new linebackers. There is good news, though. NFL scouts consider free agent pickups Curtis Lofton and David Hawthorne to be as good if not better than Vilma, which means the Saints may be able to maintain or improve their 12-ranked rushing defense. There’s more good news. For those with bad long-term memory, it’s useful to look back at the last time Spagnuolo was a defensive coordinator. In 2007, he was leading what had been a group of no-name New York Giants defenders in a pummeling of the then-undefeated New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLII.

Gambit > bestofneworleans.com > auGust 14 > 2012

What do Giants fans remember about Spagnuolo? Ed Valentine, editor of the venerable Giants blog Big Blue View (www. bigblueview.com), says his most vivid recollections of the defensive coordinator was his “fiery demeanor on the sideline” and his “no-holds-barred approach to defense.” When asked whether Spagnuolo could take a Saints defense with many new faces and work them into a successful and imposing unity, Valentine was succinct: “He’s up to the challenge.” So no shortcomings or potential frustrations with Spags, like some fans had with Williams? “I think you would have to ask St. Louis fans what frustrated them about Spagnuolo,” he replied.

22

But will the coaching even matter if Bountygate continues to be a distraction? Goodell’s punishment of the Saints for the pay-for-play schemes has been the biggest Saints-related story during the offseason. Vilma is fighting the NFL in federal court to get his suspension overturned. Gabe Feldman, director of Tulane University’s sports law program, has followed Vilma’s suit against the NFL and

has sat in on a few hearings. Feldman told Gambit that Vilma faces an uphill battle, but one that could have lasting repercussions for the entire NFL. “The bigpicture fight here is about the scope of the commisioner’s powers,” Feldman said. Vilma and the Saints are beholden to a collective bargaining agreement between NFL players and owners that gave the commissioner “extremely broad powers.” In other words, Goodell has complete authority to punish players for actions he believes are detrimental to the league. The problem for Vilma is that the Saints basically admitted they broke NFL rules and that some sort of pay-for-play scheme was in place. What Vilma, Brees, Payton, Vitt and anyone wearing Black and Gold in Louisiana has argued is that what the Saints did was a violation of the salary cap,, not an on- or offfield violation that merited disciplinary action from the commissioner. Where Goodell says the Saints were paying players to injure opponents, the Saints argue they paid players to “make plays.” Regardless, it’s clear Goodell is out to change the culture of football to serve the interest of the league and its product, Feldman said. “This is more about the health and safety of [the NFL’s] players and the health and safety of their products,” he said. “Football is an inherently dangerous game. But the league can take steps to make it safer.” Goodell’s policies — and Goodell himself — may not be popular, but Feldman believes the commissioner is working in the best interest of the league. While Brees says that no player can trust the commissioner and Vilma’s lawsuit seeks to strike a blow against Goodell’s authority, Feldman says federal judges are never eager to overturn bylaws established in collective bargaining agreements between private entities.

now, NFL bylaws make Goodell judge, jury, executioner and appeals judge all in one. And it doesn’t appear that will change any time soon. So is Goodell using his evil powers to keep the Saints from playing in the 2013 Super Bowl in the Superdome? Of all the insane message board conspiracy theories, the idea that Goodell came down on the Saints for Bountygate so New Orleans wouldn’t have a team in the Super Bowl — and, thus, two other teams with traveling fanbases would give the NFL more money — is as ridiculous as it sounds. The Super Bowl is practically a national holiday. People from all over the country will descend on New Orleans regardless of who is playing for the Lombardi Trophy, because it’s one of the biggest media events of the year. The reason Goodell came down on the Saints is because the franchise broke the rules and thumbed its nose at him in the process. What Who Dats everywhere really should fear: The past 11 teams that have hosted a Super Bowl have not only failed to play in the big game, but didn’t even make it to the playoffs. The last team that came close to playing the Super Bowl on its home field was the 2000 Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who lost in the NFC wild card playoff round. There are many reasons why no team has been able to play a Super Bowl on their home field — injuries, bad luck, lack of talent, overwhelming pressure — but the commissioner going out of his way to sabotage a team’s season is not one of them. The Saints are in the unique position in which they face no pressure to be Super Bowl champs or even make the playoffs. In a way, Goodell has given the Saints a perfect alibi should the team perform poorly this season. After all, what is an NFL team without its head coach? Brees and the Saints have used the “Us versus the world” mentality as motivation, repeating how unfair the suspensions are. In many ways, they’re taking a page out of the New England Patriots’ playbook. Facing stiff penalties from Goodell for their own cheating scandal, the 2006 Patriots went on to have an undefeated season, though they fell short of winning a title. With the $100 million man at the lead, the Saints are looking to do that Patriots team one better by being the first team to win a Super Bowl on its home field — without its head coach and right in front of the man suspended that coach. That would be true football history.

Pining for pies The destruction of the Hubig’s Pie bakery by fire last month has inspired a profusion of new T-shirts benefiting the bakery’s rebuilding efforts, it’s triggered a run on other official Hubig’s merchandise and has even inspired a tribute cocktail from bartender Chris Hannah at Arnaud’s French 75. It also has ignited cravings for the iconic pies, which has led to some scenes at the counter of Bud’s Broiler (citywide; www.budsbroiler.com) restaurants around the area. “People come in here shakin’ like bacon, looking for the pies,” says Shannon McGuire, owner of the Bud’s Broiler franchise in Mid-City (500 City Park Ave., 486-2559). “People are addicted to Hubig’s Pies and they’re calling all day, saying, ‘I hear you have pies, do you have pies?’” Bud’s does have pies.

A po-boy joint with some new twists. By Ian McNulty

W

hen people tell me about their favorite new lunch spot these days, it’s pretty likely it will be a gourmet burger joint, a Vietnamese noodle shop or the expansion of a well-marketed national chain. Diversity is great and new food options are exciting, but the pace of change for casual eats around New Orleans is enough to give some pause about the future of our homegrown food traditions. That’s why I was excited to stumble upon Avery’s Po-boys, a hole-in-the-wall place with a few new ideas for New Orleans standards and a way with the classics that reminds diners why they became classics in the first place. Avery’s is on a stretch of Tulane Avenue that has long needed more entrepreneurial investment and finally seems to be getting some. The space has a bootstrap feel to it, a tidy blank slate given a few dashes of color here and there. It’s a family-run shop opened in April by Christy and Justin Pitard, who named it for their daughter. Justin is a New Orleans native, and Christy hails from Buffalo, N.Y. That explains one of Avery’s prime specialties, and perhaps the best argument for trying the place: the Buffalo shrimp poboy. Wing-style sauce on fried seafood is not a new idea, but attention to detail and composition makes Avery’s example a standout. Shrimp are coated in a properly tangy Buffalo sauce with more pucker than heat, and the masterstroke is a chunky

blue cheese dressing with the right balance of velvety richness and pungency. The excellent roast beef is of the long-simmered, falling-tobits variety, held together by a toasted Leidenheimer loaf. If you want to show someone how a good, country-style gumbo should taste, Avery’s chicken and andouille version makes a fine alternative to a trip to the River Parishes. Another interesting specialty is an oysters Rockefeller dip that would not be out of place on the buffet at a fancy party. It’s about a quarter-cup of cream away from being a soup, with fresh-tasting spinach and a backbeat of anise. It’s served in small bowls, but it should be a contender for a future po-boy filling in its own right. A badly overcooked burger was a rare off note, which was a shame since its thick, hand-formed patty seemed to have potential. Daily specials follow the traditional plate lunch schedule, though one more thing I like about Avery’s is how often unique items crop up. Fried potato salad is molded into baseball-sized orbs under a crisp panko shell and drizzled with creamy horseradish sauce. The changing landscape of New Orleans lunch is cause for some handwringing. But at Avery’s, you can keep those hands happily occupied juggling gravy-laden po-boys, gumbo and a little Buffalo sauce.

This medium-bodied red blend is from the historic wine district near Verona in northern Italy, and it exhibits excellent regional character. The blend of 80 percent corvina and 10 percent each sangiovese and rondinella was aged six months in stainless steel tanks followed by 12 months in Slavonian oak casks. In the glass, it offers aromas of wild berries, raisins and red and black currants as well as oak and floral notes. On the palate, the dry wine offers attractive earthiness and flavors of black cherry, plum, dried herbs and spice. The wine is ready to drink now, but it will improve with age. Decant several hours before serving. Drink it with antipasti, wild game, pasta Bolognese, lamb, grilled meats, veal dishes and hearty, firm cheeses. Buy it at: Swirl in the City and Dorignac’s. Drink it at: Caesar’s Deli.

interview Like Hubig’s, the Bud’s pie is an oblong, fried pie with a sweet crust encasing a fruit filling. They’re served hot from the fryer, with an optional dusting of powdered sugar. The pies come in cherry, peach and apple flavors, and they cost about two bucks. Bud’s Broiler has been around since 1952 (the City Park Avenue location was its first restaurant). The pies have been the signature dessert since 1962, though they until recently, they also were unavailable. Like other supplies for the Bud’s Broiler menu, the pies are made at a central commissary and distributed to the company’s franchisees, says Joe Catalano, owner of the Bud’s Broiler company. Before Hurricane Katrina, the commissary was in Mid-City, but it was wrecked by flooding after the levee failures. It later reopened in a new location in Kenner, and in 2010, after a five year hiatus, the pies returned to the Bud’s menu. “This year makes 50 years that they’ve been around,” Catalano says.

Julia Child tribute

spanish borgne Borgne (601 Loyola Ave., 613-3860; www.borgnerestaurant.com), the latest from chef John Besh’s restaurant group, is primarily featuring Louisiana food, with an undercurrent of Spanish flavor. This Wednesday, in another example of the special wine dinners taking place

The home-brew supply store Brewstock (3800 Dryades St., 208-2788; www.brewstock.com) looks like part hardware store and part apothecary. From floor to ceiling, shelves are stocked with all the equipment and raw materials needed to brew beer and make specialty foods at home. Wisconsin native Aaron Hyde first opened Brewstock on Oak Street in 2009 and moved to its current address in Uptown’s Milan neighborhood a year later. Brewstock provides supplies to make a wide array of foods and drinks, from fruit wines to cheese, charcuterie and cocktail tinctures. The shop offers classes and maintains an online forum for enthusiasts to share ideas. Is there a seasonal flow to the projects your customers pursue? Hyde: Definitely. A lot of people brew beer outdoors, so fall is when they start that up. But summer is when all this fruit is coming in — blueberries, blackberries and all of this muscadine just growing wild in some places — so people are making wine. The amount of fruit down here is unbelievable. Once you start brewing, all you see is wine hanging from trees. When you realize you have 200 lemons and you won’t eat them all, you start thinking, let’s make some wine from it. Is brewing beer a gateway to more make-it-yourself hobbies? H: People get into one thing and then they have the equipment and they think, well, what else can I make? They start with (making) beer or wine, and then they see the green coffee beans on the shelf here, and even if they’ve never thought about roasting their own beans before now they want to. It’s the same way with making your own cheese, that’s a logical next step. It’s a back-to-the-kitchen thing. People see all this stuff in restaurants now too, and the restaurants are saying, “We make this by hand, we make this here,” so people start thinking maybe I can do this too. What’s the biggest kick you get from brewing? H: It’s one of the most rewarding hobbies because you get to share it. It’s really cool to say, “I brewed this beer,” and then have your friends be able to enjoy it with you. That’s a lot easier than trying to get someone excited about that duck decoy you carved. — IAN MCNULTY

around the city this summer, the Spanish side will be in sharper focus. Brian Landry, the chef and Besh’s partner in the restaurant, has a fivecourse menu that starts with tapas of bacon-wrapped dates, yellow tomato gazpacho and squash blossoms, paired with cava. Then there’s a serrano ham, goat cheese and chanterelle mushroom course with txakolina, the effervescent Basque wine, following by charred octopus with a white Rioja and a main course of mangrove snapper a la plancha with vina do burato, a red wine sometimes compared to Beaujolais. Dessert is a pineapple upside-down cake with rums from the Canary Islands. The dinner starts at 6:30 p.m. and costs $65.

Ostrich on tap The Fair Grounds Race Course & Slots (1751 Gentilly Blvd., 944-

5515; www.fairgroundsracecourse. com) doesn’t start thoroughbred racing season until Thanksgiving, but there are events throughout the year designed to draw in people who are not diehard railbirds. The most extreme example is Saturday, when ostriches, camels and local sports team mascots will race on the track, while an international beer tasting called Tails & Ales takes place in the upper levels of the Fair Grounds clubhouse. Abita Brewing is sponsoring Tails & Ales, which promises craft and specialty beers from around the world. A VIP portion of the event includes special beers and food as well. The first exotic animal race is at 7:10 p.m., and Tails & Ales is from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. There are separate admissions for the races (which are open to all ages) and for Tails & Ales.

Trends, notes, quirks and quotes from the world of food. “While we have always had an emotional relationship with food, what’s different is we talk about it more, and the discussion is much louder. Food is fashion. You wear your diet like you wear your clothes.” — Harry Balzer, food industry analyst at the national research firm NPD Group, quoted in a USA Today story on Americans’ perceptions and connections to their food.

The late Julia Child would have turned 100 on Wednesday, Aug. 15. To celebrate the anniversary, Bayona (430 Dauphine St., 525-4455; www.bayona.com) is serving a special menu this week in her honor. Child helped introduce French cooking and culinary culture to modern American audiences, and she made an impact on Bayona chef Susan Spicer too. “She’s been a hero of mine,” Spicer says. “She dined here at Bayona a few times, and it turns out she was one of those icons who, when you finally get to meet them, are even greater in real life than you thought they could be. She was razor-sharp and also a lot of fun and just made you feel like you were the most interesting person in the room and the center of her attention.” The speical four-course menu starts with a choice of pissaladiere (a Provencal-style pizza) or a confit duck gizzard salad. Next there’s chilled seafood consomme with crab and an entree choice of summer duck pot a feu or flounder stuffed with salmon mousse with Champagne-truffle beurre blanc (“Julia loved beurre blanc,” Spicer says). And for dessert? Birthday cake, of course. The menu costs $48 and is available through Aug. 18.

Don’t Tell Mama Leslie Jordan dishes on life in show business. By Will Coviello

O

    Shores and Jordan  followed similar  career paths. Shores  grew up in Texas and  eventually went to  Hollywood to write for  TV and film. Jordan  grew up in Chattanooga, Tenn., and  went to Hollywood  to pursue an acting  career. Jordan often  seeks Shores’ advice  on traveling gigs.     “He is very brave,”  Jordan says. “He’ll  go everywhere. I call  him and he’ll say ‘Listen honey, you’ve got  to do New Orleans.’  Or you need to do  this place.”     Jordan’s performances at the  AllWays are part of what is only his second trip to  New Orleans. Although he grew up in Chattanooga, he visited the city for the first time to headline  a show in the gay community’s series of parties  and events known at Halloweens in New Orleans  several years ago.     The show at AllWays, Stories I Can’t Tell Mama,  is an ever-changing collection of anecdotes, mostly  about his life in show business. He’ll share behindthe-scenes tales from The Help, Sordid Lives, Will & Grace and other shows.     “I ain’t Kathy Griffin yet,” he says, noting that he  has a strong fan base.     He also has some stories about Varla Jean Merman. The two collaborated on Lucky Guy in New  York, which flopped.     “We shared a dressing room,” Jordan says with a  laugh. “I had to sit clear over in the corner. I had five  little inches. She’s a big old girl, and her costumes  took up the whole room.”     Besides his cabaret show, Jordan has done other  one-man shows and more polished pieces. In 2008,  he did an off-Broadway show called My Trip Down the Pink Carpet. He’s returning to New York in a  couple weeks to perform in a one-man play festival  at the Cherry Lane Theatre. In Los Angeles, he’s  been performing an original piece called Fruit Fly.

    “It answers the age old quesLeslie Jordan performs his tion: Do gay men become their  one-man show Stories I Can’t mothers?” he says.

n TV, Leslie Jordan has made a career of  small roles, but he doesn’t like waiting for  casting directors to call, so he regularly  performs his solo comic cabaret-style show. He’s in  New Orleans this week for two shows at the AllWays  Lounge and Theatre.     Directors have called often enough to make him a  familiar face on many shows. One of his best-known  recurring TV appearances was his Emmy-winning  role on Will & Grace as Beverly Leslie, the socialite  nemesis of Karen Walker (Megan Mullally), the  boozy, rich and smart-mouthed assistant to Grace  (Debra Messing). He talks about the role a lot in his  cabaret show.     “Everyone assumes because the character’s  name is Beverly Leslie that the part was written  for me,” Jordan says. “It wasn’t. It was written for  Joan Collins.     “In the episode, Joan was supposed to try to steal  Karen’s maid Rosario from her. They were supposed  to get in a knockdown drag-out fight over it on a pool  table — like a big fight on Collins’ show Dynasty.  They were supposed to rip each others’ wigs off. But  Collins’ management said ‘No.’ No wig was coming  off. So I got the part.”     When the recurring character won Jordan  an Emmy, he thought he could parlay that into  greater things.     “I won an Emmy for Will & Grace, and I thought  I was set,” he says. “I thought, ‘I will be offered my  own television show.’ And I am telling you: nothing.  Nothing. People would want me to do a TV show and  my manager would say, ‘Well, you know you need to  pay him, he won an Emmy.’ And they didn’t care.”     Mullally tried to develop a show for her and Jordan’s characters, but it never got off the ground.     Jordan has a long list of TV credits, often playing  a similar type: a closeted gay man with a sharp wit  and Southern accent. He’s appeared on Desperate Housewives, Boston Legal, Boston Public, Ally McBeal, Murphy Brown, Reba and many others. He’s  also known for playing cross-dressing, closeted  homosexual country music fan Earl “Brother Boy”  Ingram in Sordid Lives. Del Shores’ dark comedy  chronicled a wildly dysfunctional family of Biblethumping Baptists living in a small Texas town overrun with scandalous intrigue. Sordid Lives started as  a play (1996), was released as a movie (2000) and  followed as a series (2008). Jordan also performed  in Shores’ Southern Baptist Sissies.

the threadbare window dressing “an evening with” so-and-so is one of concert advertising’s falsest modesties. lindsey buckingham, without opening act or accompaniment, within arm’s reach at one eyed Jacks, more than qualifies. as the delicate fulcrum of fleetwood mac’s Californicating sequel — i.e., the one everyone knows — buckingham wrote, arranged, produced and played an incredible spectrum of piercing guitar pop: gusty fm stalwarts (“monday morning,” “go Your own way”), dewy, sunlit diamond-cut gems (“never going back again,” “i Don’t want to Know”), preClintonian platitudes lindsey buckingham (“Don’t stop”) and post-breakup, AUG obsessive-compulsive thinkpieces 9 p.m. saturday (most of his work on Tusk). in fleetone eyed Jacks wood mac, his bracingly thin tenor and nimble fingerpicking accented 615 toulouse st. Christine mcVie’s mauve soft rock 569-8361 and grounded the fanciful flights of division belle stevie nicks. on his www.oneeyedjacks.net six solo records, buckingham has steadily shed all outside distractions, spinning understated webs using only those two marvels of sound; last year’s self-released Seeds We Sow finds shelter in patches of acoustic sweetbrier and brittle vocal bramble. it’s not exactly tall grass, but at age 62, it’ll more than do. tickets $60. — noah bonaparte pais

The Bourne Legacy

When does a popular and widely acclaimed (PG-13) movie series finally run its course? The deparDirected by tures of the Bourne films’ longtime director (Paul Tony Gilroy Greengrass) and charismatic star (Matt Damon) probably serve as a pretty clear indication. Based Starring Jeremy on Robert Ludlum’s best-selling series of spy Renner, Rachel Weisz novels, the Bourne movies needed some kind of and Edward Norton reboot to have a shot at continued success, and that’s exactly what The Bourne Legacy provides. Wide release There’s only so much you can do to keep a series going when your protagonist has amnesia at the start of the first film and finally figures out who he is at the end of the third. That human element — fictional CIA super-spy Jason Bourne’s search for his own origin story — has always balanced the series’ emphasis on fast-paced action. The Bourne Legacy takes another tack entirely, focusing on a related but distinct government spy program (with events happening concurrently with the previous Bourne film) that uses high-tech pharmaceuticals to genetically alter agents and render them smarter, stronger and faster than merely well-trained ones. Jeremy Renner (The Hurt Locker) isn’t a bad substitute for Damon, and co-writer and director Tony Gilroy (who also co-wrote the previous Bourne screenplays) surely gets points for originality. But The Bourne Legacy seems oddly disconnected from the human struggles that have made the series work. It’s all about chromosomes and cold-blooded murder. And it may be the first pharmacological thriller. Don’t be surprised if it’s the last. — KEN KORMAN

THRu 9:15 p.m. Tue.-Thu. Sometimes a fresh eye is all you need to Aug Zeitgeist Multi-Discirejuvenate a tried-and-true formula. Nobody plinary Arts Center Else But You, the second feature by French writer/director Gerald Hustache-Mathieu, 1618 Oretha Castle puts an unconventional spin on the well-worn Haley Blvd. detective-fiction literary form and its film noir 352-1150 counterpart. Jean-Paul Rouve stars as a crime novelist suffering writer’s block who literally www.zeitgeistinc.net stumbles upon a dead body while visiting “the coldest town in France” for the reading of a will. Tightly constructed using flashbacks, dream sequences and real-time clue-gathering, the movie paints a vivid and even moving portrait of a young actress named Candice Lecoeur (Sophie Quinton) whose Marilyn Monroe fixation may have gotten her killed. The movie’s take on Marilyn is a little harder to discern. Is her life an inspiration or a cautionary tale? The director seems most interested in Marilyn’s personal transformation and her issues of self-esteem, which adds some depth to the mystery at the movie’s center. The story details fit together a little too cleanly in the end, and there are plausibility issues probably best left unexamined. But with Twin Peaks and Fargo serving as obvious touchstones, who’s going to complain? Good detective stories are really about the vibe, and that’s something this movie has in spades. — KEN KORMAN

Living With Pop: Works by Andy Warhol, Tom Wesselmann, Roy Lichtenstein, Keith Haring, Others Octavia Art Gallery 4532 Magazine St. 309-4249 www.octaviaartgallery.com

Gambit > bestofneworleans.com > auGust 14 > 2012

When JFK was in the White House and New York was the capital of the world, a little-known artist named Andy Warhol had his first solo exhibition in Manhattan. It was 1962 and the show included his iconic images of Marilyn Monroe, Campbell’s Soup cans and Coke bottles. The Peter Pan of pop art had crafted an aesthetically provocative vision of all that was crass and ironic in American culture and somehow made it fun. The world would never be the same, and although pop’s glory days are long gone, it remains a symbol of a stylishly naive and uniquely American extravagance, perhaps because we remain a preternaturally adolescent nation forever fixated on a neon vision of fulfillment. Whatever the reason, these pop pieces by Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Jim Dine, Tom Wesselmann and others at the Octavia Gallery look almost as fresh now as they did then. Warhol’s evolution is illustrated in his 1967 lithograph of Marilyn Monroe in which she appears with a lurid green face and purple-crimson lips, an expressionistic treatment appropriate to Vietnam Warera angst, but his Jane Fonda of 1982 is

paradoxically prettified, as was typical of his Reagan-era work. There also is a Lichtenstein Landscape Mobile that is a wacky pop take on Alexander Calder, as well as some Dine variations on his traditional graphical hearts and bath robe themes, and a nice selection of iconic Wesselmann works, sensuously minimal nudes by the Matissean master of pop soft porn. And there are some surprises including a 1981 Oh! Calcutta! subway poster transformed by Keith Haring’s seminal graffiti figures. Local artists’ works in the show include Jeffrey Pitt’s Haring-esque marker paintings, and Sarah Ashley Longshore’s Trophy Wife Junk Drawer painting of high heel pumps, lipstick and derringers, a reminder that Warhol started out as a shoe illustrator and survived being shot by a woman with a handgun at the peak of his fame. History has a way of repeating itself, and we are lucky when it remains confined to acrylic on canvas. — D. ERIC BOOKHARDT

Many actors and playwrights channel their experiences into original productions, but the InterAct NOLA’s musical Funky Times at the Blue Door Shack is a unique project. The cast is mostly comprised of mentally challenged participants who combine original sketches and songs to bring the mystical Blue Door Shack to life. The mythical speakeasy was “built back in the day when people didn’t have no place to go to feel free to express themselves,” says actress Kim Champagne. The show features both upbeat numbers and songs examining the feelings of rejection many mentally disabled people encounter. The Blue Door Shack serves as a haven of acceptance. 7 p.m. Friday aUG “You always pickin’ on me/ talkin ’bout me, staring at me,” sings Champagne, who plays Sasha, the star singer of the Blue Door Shack. “Can’t Westwego Performyou see that you always suffocate me?” ing Arts Theatre New Orleans hip-hop artist Nasimiyu “Simi” Murumba wrote and directed 177 Sala Ave, Westthe play. wego, for reservations “I try to be the glue that ties their ideas together without putting in too many of call 897-0134 my own,” Murumba says. “This is a place where your imagination is your vehicle, and there’s no sense of anyone pulling you back and harnessing you in. Everyday Tickets $10 experiences with this population are like, ‘Ok, you’re speaking too loud, you’re not sitting in the right place …’ so theater is the place where there’s no rules.” For Murumba, who also performs in the play, the first of many lessons she learned working with the group was being able to gauge everyone’s skill levels. “We want the melody to just come through clearly and knock you out of your seat,” she says. “That means not everybody is gonna be able to sing. That also means that not all the singers will be able to dance. So it’s been a process of getting to know each person individually to find out what their voice is. That’s why you hear this reoccuring theme of ‘finding your voice.’” The actors play themselves, trying to find a voice and a medium of expression in real life at the same time as their characters do at the Blue Door Shack. In the play, a quiet server named Marie struggles to find her voice among the many talented patrons of the Blue Door Shack, and it becomes apparent the character parallels the actress’ experiences. Interact NOLA is a project of Arc of Greater New Orleans, which serves people with developmental disabilities in Orleans, Jefferson and St. Bernard parishes. The participants started working on the production in January. It debuts at Westwego Performing Arts Theatre and there are performances at Nunez Community College and Cafe Istanbul in the following weeks. — MATTHEW HOSE

Fiddler on the Roof is in the canon of musicals commonly produced at community theaters, and it has been presented at several local stages in recent years. the tulane Summer Lyric season-closer didn’t imagine the Sheldon Harnick and Jerry Bock musical in a new light, but the solid production sated an audience excited about the traditional approach. things are changing for dairyman tevye, his five daughters, wife and the other residents of their poor Russian shtetl. the three eldest daughters, approaching marriage age, have become taken with the new-world concepts of love and happiness. the villagers’ way of life is threatened as Jews elsewhere are expelled from their homes in pogroms and similar “demonstrations” (as a Russian constable euphemistically puts it) in their town are on the horizon. tevye is the guide and comic relief for the audience, and the jolly Randy Cheramie is a fitting embodiment (he’s played the role five times, most recently in the Jefferson Performing Arts Society’s 2008 production). He jovially played to the audience in his frequent asides, but he also was successful in navigating tevye’s anger, caginess and fear. Some notes revealed some weaknesses in his singing voice, but as a character singer he was fine. And the audience loved him. Celeste Angelle Veillon was a fitting foil as his no-nonsense, but devoted, wife Golde. the source of strife lies in tevye’s daughters, who have thwarted his and the nosy Yente’s (a comic role handled ably by dialect pro Francine Segal) plans to land the girls their mates — the elder’s selections are often, in their eyes, well-off mensches, but to the daughters they are undesirable old men. One suitor is the town butcher, Lazar Wolf, who Robert Pavlovich played as likable and sympathetic. the girls go rogue and choose as husbands a poor tailor (an endearingly awkward Daniel Iwrey), a radical teacher (Colby McCurdy, a rich tenor costumed in a revolutionary’s beret and fake mustache) and, most shocking, a gentile (Peter Elliott in a furry hat). the daughters, played by Ali Bloomston, Jenna Winston and Allie Zodin, comprise the emotional core of the show, especially Winston, whose voice made “Far From the Home I Love” particularly heartbreaking. Company numbers like “Sabbath Prayer” were especially enjoyable due to the cast’s quality singing and the live orchestra (although the cast seemed crowded on stage in the opener “tradition”). Deft choreography for the “bottle dance” scene in the wedding scene that closed Act One provided some excitement. Under the direction of Alton Geno, a missed fixture of the local theater scene who returned to town for the tulane Summer Lyric series, the cast delivered on the classic material. But judging from the audience, who could be overheard talking excitedly about the show’s “hits” like “Matchmaker, Matchmaker” and “Sunrise, Sunset,” it seems there’s much value in tradition. — LAUREN LABORDE

JOB GURU

Underwriting Sales Position

Dear New Orleans Job Guru, “I’m a good sous chef with a decent work history, but I took a job out of state a few years ago and just returned. The people I worked with aren’t there anymore. In the past, I mostly didn’t need a résumé, but now everybody wants one. Will you look at mine (attached) and tell me why nobody is calling me for an interview?” — Joey S., New Orleans, LA Dear Joey, When you left town a few years ago, it would have been a good idea to keep up with your friends in the restaurant business. Connections, friends, colleagues, and networking is more than half the battle nowadays in terms of finding jobs. It is true that in the culinary field, résumés were not as important, and applicants would be given an “audition” and asked to cook something to show their skills. Grant Cooper Cooking auditions are still an important part of the culinary hiring process, but résumés are playing an ever more central role. If you think about it, in today’s competitive market, the Executive Chef or GM simply doesn’t have the time to give every sous chef applicant an audition. Seeing something substantial on paper in your résumé that catches his/her eye and that can justify extending an interview and audition is critical. A recent culinary client with a plain, unimpressive résumé was getting no results in applying to the finer restaurants in New Orleans. She had worked in several high profile fine dining establishments and had a good employment record. After 6 weeks of looking, she called us for an appointment. We totally reinvented her résumé, showed the wide range of culinary capabilities she had, created a listing of menu specialties, listed the chefs she had worked under, documented her sanitation certification and training, and designed a compelling cover letter that showed her value proposition. She got three interviews in the first week of using her new résumé and cover letter, and accepted a position at a great French Quarter restaurant.

After reading through the résumé you attached, Joey, I see many areas of improvement you should definitely implement. Aside from making it more attractive, providing better detail, and sprucing it up to meet with today’s state-of-the-art résumé standards, I would suggest the following additions that should be considered for inclusion on every culinary résumé: • List the genres of cuisine that were primarily featured at the restaurants you worked for • Document the number of seats and average lunch & dinner tickets per guest

70

• Provide a list of several menu specialties that you are particularly accomplished in • List the awards & recognition your restaurants won during your service there • Highlight any major events & VIPs you catered to, such as Super Bowl, Presidents, etc New Orleans Job Guru is New Orleans native Grant Cooper.
