The 86-page lawsuit, filed at U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, seeks unspecified financial compensation for fraud and negligence against the NFL, a $9 billion annual industry.

Nico Muhly’s interest in the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (FLDS), the polygamist offshoot Mormon sect based in the Southwest, was a casual fascination. “The way that one gets obsessed with things on the Internet,” he explains. “It’s one of these fascinating American history wormholes,” Muhly continues. “Many of the pioneers were practicing polygamy, so these women who were sister wives really helped shape the American westward expansion.” This bizarre history leaped immediately to mind when Muhly was commissioned to write a chamber opera for the Opera Company of Philadelphia’s American Repertoire Program. Muhly teamed with playwright Stephen Karam on “Dark Sisters,” which draws from stories of government raids on FLDS compounds in 1953 and 2008 as well as accounts of the dozens of wives of Mormon founding fathers Joseph Smith and Brigham Young. To translate these stories into music, the 30-year-old

There’s an element of Americana to the score, references to folk songs that would have been sung not only in pioneer times but also in modern day polygamist homes.” SHAUN BRADY

Why evolving scene of opera chose Philly PHILADELPHIA. Patricia Kiernan Johnson, marketing and media manager at Opera America, said, “Philadelphia was chosen for Opera Conference 2012 because it is home to worldclass training institutions like Curtis Institute and the Academy of Vocal Arts. The Opera Company of Philadelphia has several field-leading initiatives that are encouraging the entire field to re-examine inherited practices. The very popular “Random Acts of Culture,” where the Opera Company of Philadelphia performs parts of opera at unlikely spots, such as Reading Terminal Market and Geno’s Steaks, is one of the initiatives that Johnson was referencing.

With their American Repertoire Program, the Opera Company of Philadelphia has committed to producing a new American opera each year for the next decade. LAURA GOLDMAN

DANNY CEVALLOS LEGAL ENTRIES

NOT ALWAYS ILLEGAL TO DISCRIMINATE I discriminate. Many people today equate the word discrimination with a wrongful act. To them, to be “discriminated against” is to be a victim of illegal behavior. The very word itself conjures up a presumption of guilt.

iscrimination has indeed become a dirty word. For example, a recent column featured disgruntled non-employees complaining that they were discriminated against, and not hired, because of their neck tattoos. That is evidence that we, as a society, don’t understand the law. People are surprised to find that the vast majority of discrimination is not only legal, but perfectly acceptable — even expected. Only a few forms of discrimination are actually illegal. Differential treatment based upon race, color, gender, age, sexual orientation, religion, ethnic or national origin, disability, veteran status, gender identity (recently), or any other protected status that also affects the terms or conditions of employment or education, constitute unlawful discrimination. Otherwise, absent any exception or contract, it’s perfectly legal to hire and fire anyone for any reason — even a bad reason. The reality is we discriminate all day, every day. We discriminate when we don’t hire the guy who showed up to the firm interview in the Led Zeppelin t-shirt. We discriminate based upon looks when we choose a mate. (Some discriminate less than others, especially when they drink.) Is a guy walking down a dark street toward you with a bloody machete? You’re not going waste a lot of time thinking about his socioeconomic background or the racial makeup of his mother-in-law. You’re going to discriminate and cross to the other side of the street. Discrimination is part of how we survive and how we make good decisions in life and business. Unfortunately, by turning “discrimination” into a profane word, we’ve confused an entire generation, who now think that because they were canned for showing up drunk to work at the bank in flip-flops

“We should stop being afraid of a word and be honest about the fact that we all discriminate.”

and cargo shorts, they’ve somehow been legally wronged. We should stop being afraid of a word and be honest about the fact that we all discriminate. For example, here is one group I actively discriminate against — and you should, too (after all, it’s perfectly legal): Only Children. Why single out people who already have no siblings? I don’t trust them. They’re too confident and happy as the product of institutionalized selfishness. As one of my mom’s litter of 11 (or so) children, Christmastime was more like when UNICEF backs up a flatbed truck into an impoverished nation and tosses sacks of rice into a crowd. In my case, that crowd was an angry mob of siblings. I couldn’t imagine the joy of an Only Child: coming down the steps on Christmas morn and knowing the entire panorama of presents was all yours! Only Children have never had to share. They have never had to compete for the remote control, or for the last slice of pizza. Because Only Children are raised to believe they are unique and destined for greatness, they often go on to become captains of industry. If you’re going to be bigoted, Only Children are a safe bet. They are too busy on their yachts to care anyway. Ultimately, discrimination based on race or other protected classes is not only illegal, it’s illogical and bad business. Fortunately, that kind of unlawful discrimination is the true minority. The infinite other kinds are an integral part of life. Let’s raise our understanding of the word, and stop discrimination against, well, “discrimination.”

Firefighters’ deaths to get Council review

SUMMERFEST AAA’s Summer Vacation Sale!

PAIGE OZAROSKI/METRO

Investigations into two firefighter deaths at this Kensington blaze could take as long as a year.

City Council passed legislation Thursday calling on a committee to investigate Philadelphia Fire Department management practices and determine if adequate safety controls were put in place during the Kensington warehouse blaze that killed Lt. Robert Neary and Firefighter Daniel Sweeney on April 9. “I urge Council ... not necessarily to cast blame on anyone, but to review all the investigative information,” Councilman Jim Kenney said. “This city and the administration has asked these men and women to do a lot more with a lot less. The least we can do is give them the opportunity to review the incident to make sure tragedies like this don’t happen again.” Members of firefighter’s union Local 22 came out to

The couple and their daughter were allegedly tied up as the suspects went through the

There have been a series of home invasions involving Asian business owners in the Philadelphia suburbs in recent years. Several people have been prosecuted and convicted. METRO

but have not commented much further due to pending investigations by the District Attorney’s Office and the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health. The union said those findings could take more than a year. “Our position has always been two things: We were fighting an exterior fire — no one was inside — and it was under control within a half hour. Two guys died — that just doesn’t happen. Anyone who is willing to look into it, we support,” said Local 22 Recording Secretary Mike Bresnan.

OLYMPICS HAVOC HURTS THE POOR

Global Games add to the misery of the impoverished communities they were supposed to save Profits have taken precedence Learn about the quadrennial event’s dark side: From predatory landlords to mass evictions

“He wanders around Westfield, dreaming about what he can’t have,” Carole Vincent says of her autistic son. “I’m not confident about finding a new place for him.” The glamor of the Olympic site’s new shopping center is as close as Ashley Vincent, 23, can get to the $15.55 billion renewal program in East London. He has just been evicted at short notice from his apartment near the site, along with three disabled housemates. His landlord has chosen to chase a fortune from short-term rentals. Demand has pushed rental prices

up to 400 percent higher around the site, and residents like Ashley lose their homes. In Newham, London’s most deprived borough, “hundreds” of local people have been evicted ahead of the Games, Anchor House shelter director Keith Fernett told Metro. Newham Council drew criticism in April over a plan to relocate 500 people to Northern England, a “pragmatic” policy which Fernett expects to see more of. The evictions have inflamed a severe housing shortage, which had already forced people into desperate conditions.

Designer Suits

There are an estimated 10,000 living in illegal extensions in Newham, “sheds and garages are being [leased],” says Fernett. Overcrowding is severe: “We’ve seen 38 living in a house.” Sim Sekhon, director of Legal 4 Landlords eviction specialists, confirmed to Metro that business is booming, and that even the previously comfortable are being dragged down. “London is the majority of our business now. Evictions are certainly increasing in the Olympic hot spots. Landlords are cashing in on short-term [rentals] and people who have

done nothing wrong are replaced. Even the middle classes are being affected.” The Olympic legacy was supposed to solve the housing crisis and regenerate rundown areas. London Mayor Boris Johnson recently claimed 10,000 “affordable” homes would come out of the Games. But the only new housing being built in Newham is high-end, far beyond the means of its cashstrapped community.

The Olympics are big business, but the downtrodden don’t tend to benefit. Complaints from residents to local government have failed, as councils say they have no power to regulate private landlords. “There is nothing to prevent soaring rents because there is no protection for tenants,” Shadow Housing Minister Jack Dromey told Metro. “The Olympics are a triumph for Britain but it’s wrong that thousands of local people are paying the price for it.”

ear Fellow Voter, It is with a heavy heart that I write to say I’m sorry, we just can’t talk anymore. We fight all the time. We don’t agree on anything. I think it is better that we part ways. Oh sure, we’ve always had our disagreements, but after each election we were able to put them aside and unite for the common good. Now? Every time my side loses I want to key your car, and every time yours does I worry that you’re going to burn down my house. Perhaps we can find some consolation in knowing that we are not alone. Just this week the Pew Research Center issued a report saying that voters all over the country have drifted farther apart than they’ve been in decades: Dems to their corners, Repubs to theirs, increasingly bitter Quoted and divided over even the most basic issues. Democrats are more “Sometimes committed to the role of voters fine government; Republicans are more dismissive of it. The liberals are when they more liberal, the conservatives don’t love more conservative, and heaven each other help you if you are a true independent. Nobody wants you anymore, around. everyone Frankly, I think money is to blame. In better years when our suffers.” economy boomed, we had so much FOREMAN we could indulge each other’s interests. Dems could fund the social programs, Repubs could give breaks to business, and despite some grousing (especially if we all went out and drank too much) we were OK. But as the money dried up, we’ve had to make some hard choices.

You’ll slip away into your America, and I’ll slip away into mine. We can hand off the young, undecided voters every other weekend. I know it is sad, but it’s just the way it goes. Sometimes voters find when they don’t love each other anymore, everyone suffers. So I am afraid this is goodbye. Try not to cry. Perhaps when we’ve had some time apart, we’ll see things more clearly and realize what we had, and what we lost, and maybe ... just maybe ... we’ll think that working together really was better than winning.

Could ‘Prometheus’ be real? TWENTIETH CENTURY FOX

The new sci-fi film may be more realistic than we realize, as we may find alien life in the next two years

We’ve only just begun looking

T

Recently, Tarter has been searching for signs of technology in the universe, using it as a proxy for intelligence. While she and her colleagues haven’t found any spaceships or ray guns, Tarter doesn’t believe that means we’re all alone out there. The data that shows that there isn’t any life is also consistent with the possibility that there is abundant life out there. “We haven’t been searching for very long,” she admitted.

his summer, Earth is under attack. From action films like “Prometheus” and “The Avengers,” to comedies like “Men In Black 3,” aliens are appearing at the multiplex and threatening the fate of humanity. But Jill Tarter, American astronomer and former director of the Center for SETI Research, believes that these films are just — duh — entertainment. If extraterrestrial beings were to come to our world, they’d be so technologically advanced that they wouldn’t need puny human slaves or our meager food. Plus, there’s a possibility they wouldn’t look like anything we’ve seen before — or could even think of. “Whether our imagination is up to the task of really appreciating what nature might do

Review

‘Prometheus’ “Prometheus” is a rare thing in many ways. First, anything you feel certain of being true about it beforehand, you should not trust. The secrecy that surrounds this film is what makes watching it so exciting. Secondly, “Prometheus” proves that you can sink enough

somewhere else remains to be seen,” Tarter told Metro World News. “Look at the body plan that evolved. Nature experimented and discarded some and modified other things. There are so many weird things on this planet that we are beginning to appreciate. I think that it might be weirder still from some other environment.”

M

ost of Tarter’s career with the nonprofit SETI Institute — which stands for the “search for extraterrestrial intelligence” — has been dedicated to examining the universe for other beings. Tarter, who recently retired, will be discussing her ideas about the possibility of aliens alongside real astronauts and Hollywood sci-fi

actors at the upcoming SETIcon on June 22-24 in Silicon Valley, California. Tarter believes that humans will discover extraterrestrial life in the next two years. It’s a valid question to ponder, especially because for thousands of years humanity had to rely on priests and philosophers to tell them the truth about the universe. Now, thanks to tools like the Kepler space observatory, we have discovered more than 2,000 extrasolar planet candidates to date. Many of them are similar to our home planet. “We can almost taste the idea that Earth 2.0 is going to turn up in the near future,” she says. MICHELLE CASTILLO

Though this scene from “Prometheus” is pure entertainment, Tarter believes the discovery of extraterrestrial life is not far off.

money to fund a small city’s budget into a film and have it be worth it. We’ve all been burned by believing that a movie’s budget dictates its level of success with an audience. Ridley Scott’s smart, high-concept film can bring us back to the church of believing that a blockbuster can be worth the money. Thirdly, this movie isn’t for the audience that loved the original

“Alien” movies. Rather than being the sort of prequel that would be embraced by nostalgic fans, this film will go over best with those who know nothing of Sigourney Weaver running around a spaceship in her underwear (but maybe you should check that out later). Our informal poll so far has indicated that those who loved those original films were disappointed by this

‘Kingdom’

If there’s something that breaks from the Wes Anderson norm, it’s a score completely devoid of 1960s Brit pop, despite the fact that the film is set in 1965. The music of French chanteuse Franciose Hardy and compositions by Benjamin Britten dominate the soundtrack.

Wes Anderson is at the top of his game with this tale about young love

Anyone who thinks Wes Anderson should take a new approach to filmmaking doesn’t really want to see a Wes Anderson movie. That’s like saying Steven Spielberg should take a crack at directing an episode of “Jersey Shore,” just to keep it interesting. For Mr. Anderson to do anything besides what he does would be a massive waste. He’s for a particular taste, but the distinct identity that dominates his films is what makes him a cut above so many of his contempo-

raries. So yes, you can expect many familiar hallmarks of a Wes Anderson movie here — meticulously designed sets, deadpan wit and unloved children rebelling against the ambivalence of their self-involved

parents. Here, two young loners — Sam, an orphan ostracized from his boy scout group and Suzy, a problem child within a broken family — fall in love and decide to run away into the wilderness together. The trouble with Anderson’s previous films like “The Darjeeling Limited” and “The Life Aquatic” may’ve come from the fact that those stories had veered off in strange tangents that upset the overall tone of the film. “Moonrise Kingdom,” by contrast, remains a consistent, coherent work of art that never betrays the sweetness at its center.

On the ball with healthy eating Hall of Fame basketball player Earl Monroe is back on home turf to raise diabetes awareness

FRIDAY, JUNE 8 Jazz Saxophonist Bobby Zankel philamuseum.org

GETTY IMAGES

Growing up in South Philly, Earl Monroe knew a thing or two about eating well. With good restaurants at every corner, the Hall of Fame basketball player was privy to the best food the city had to offer. Now, he’s returning to his hometown to showcase healthy eating during Merck’s Diabetes Restaurant Month, which starts Friday. Monroe, who played 13 NBA seasons, was diagnosed with type-2 diabetes in 1998 — well after his career ended. “It came as a shock,� Monroe tells Metro. As a professional athlete, Monroe had always lived an active lifestyle. He just never knew the risk factors associat-

ed with diabetes, like that diabetics have twice the risk of developing heart disease. “That got my attention,� he says. “Through the program, we strive to educate people with diabetes about the importance of making more in-

formed dietary choices.� Ten restaurants — including Square 1682, Meritage and 10 Arts Lounge -— and one food truck, Pure Fare, are participating in Merck’s program. Each is working with a registered dietician and an endocrinologist to develop heart-healthy and diabetes-friendly dishes. “I spent a lot of time eating meals on the road, so I know the unique challenge of finding healthy options when eating out,� Monroe says. “People can enjoy delicious meals at their favorite restaurants and stay healthy by making smart choices.� MIKE GREGER

‘Suburban Motel’ checks in to an urban theater Canadian playwright George F. Walker’s productions aren’t well-known in Philadelphia But they’re the perfect fit for Walking Fish Theatre JAMES JACKSON IV

When Stan Heleva, co-artistic director of Walking Fish Theatre, went to the Central Library to research the works of George F. Walker, there were none in stock. “That made me want to do his plays even more. I was like, ‘How could no one know this guy in Philadelphia?’” says Heleva. As a member of the Order of Canada (similar to being knighted), Walker is generally considered one of Canada’s leading cultural figures, yet he is not widely known among American theater artists. When Heleva read Walker’s 1997 series, “Suburban Motel,” he knew it was perfect for his intimate space on Frankford Avenue. And he didn’t hedge when he bought the rights, either: Walking Fish signed on for four plays in the “Suburban” cycle, starting with “Featuring Loretta” and “The End of Civilization.” The productions are two of the most expensive and ambitious to date in the 50-seat theater. “We always have to consider the size of our theater when we’re thinking about plays. And here were a cycle of plays that

all took place in one room,” explains Heleva, who is directing both productions. “It’s a kind of nondescript motel room, about exactly the size of our stage — a really perfect fit.” “Loretta” is the tale of a down-on-her-luck young woman being pressured into the porn industry. In “Civilization,” a couple attempts to regroup after the husband loses his job, but only finds terror and scheming in

Metro’s Chris Leo Palermino hits Tennessee this weekend You can’t go, but read this to feel like you did

ALL PHOTOS GETTY IMAGES

Who to see first

One of ‘Roo’s defining features is the fact that no two people will have the same festival experience. Saturday’s schedule, headlined by rocker Alice Cooper, at That Tent — yes, the stages are named ‘What,’ ‘Which,’ ‘This,’ ‘That,’ and ‘The Other’ — will satiate the hard rock fans. At the same time, those looking for a more upbeat, glittery vibe can dance the day away with Santigold, Major Lazer and Flying Lotus. After more than a decade, Bonnaroo still prides its jam and folk roots, with perennial favorites Umphrey’s McGee, Robert Randolph-led supergroup The Word, and that tiny band called Phish among some of the notable acts.

Though this reporter is actually writing to you from the ’Roo, you can watch the webcast online at www.youtube.com/ bonnaroo, beginning on Friday at 12:30 p.m. Fans young and old, Deadheads and hipsters, have a lot of choices. Thursday night brought buzz act Alabama Shakes. You can log on and see their set on Friday. The dancier crowd also has some choices, from L.A. dubstep act MiMosa to sax-playing electro act Big Gigantic. Unfortunately, these acts won’t be on the webcast.

Radiohead, left, and Alabama Shakes will rock Manchester, Tenn., this weekend. Writer Chris Leo Palermino will be there to take it all in. Follow him on Twitter @indiecalp.

tent/RV-mates sprawled across the farm, it’s more than just an all-encompassing music festival: The community-oriented hippie vibe makes Bonnaroo akin to a 21st century Woodstock.

In that spirit, music and the experience are key at the festival named after a 1974 Dr. John album. Throw some peace, love, and a stacked lineup in — Radiohead, Red Hot Chili Pep-

pers and Phish are headlining — and you’ve got yourself a premier music festival.

On Thursday, the community of Manchester, Tenn., swelled nearly tenfold as tens of thousands of live music fans descended upon the 700-acre farm for the 11th consecutive year. No, this is not an annual political takeover, this is Bonnaroo. Begun as a folk and jamheavy festival in 2001, the festival has since broadened to compete with the other blockbuster summer festivals in the U.S.: Lollapalooza and Coachella. For the uninitiated, four days of camping, 15 hours of sets each day across three main stages, a cinema tent, a comedy tent and multiple cafe stages with emerging acts might seem overwhelming.

Jimmy Kimmel, what have you done? We don’t envy Jimmy Kimmel. Whereas the idea of the Kardashian girls is enough to haunt this office, all three were live in his studio on Wednesday night. While he had them there, he took the opportunity to ask Kourtney if she had any plans to marry longtime boyfriend Scott Disick. “Do you wanna be in my therapy session?” she replied with a seriously scary laugh. (Did we mention she is 33 and pregnant with his second child?) “First of all, I have realized that I have major commitment problems during this pregnancy. I’m really claustrophobic, and all my issues — and I have a lot of them — they all stem from this thing. I can’t commit to anything.” Kimmel made it out of the conversation as close to alive as you can expect after a close encounter of the Kardashian kind. But if we’re writing about Kourtney’s ring next

But when Matt Lauer tried to transition with some weather small talk, Rock finally pounced. “We’re hoping the same kind of weather hits us tomorrow when we’ve got Chris Brown out on the plaza,” said Lauer. “Did you say you hope the same weather hits you?” asked Rock. “I hope some weather doesn’t smack us upside the head.” Know how awkward you feel laughing at a domestic violence joke?

When photos of Lindsay Lohan in Elizabeth Taylor costumes began to surface, we were surprised by how well the starlet cleaned up for the upcoming biopic. (Note to Linds: Dark hair and sober skin suit you, girl.) Here are other stars scheduled to play familiar faces in upcoming films:

1

This one isn’t much of a stretch: Hip-hop star Andre 3000 will reportedly play Jimi Hendrix in a biopic titled “All Is By My Side.”

Country cutie Taylor Swift is in talks to play Joni Mitchell in a film directed by Katie Jacobs.

3

Ashton Kutcher as Steve Jobs? Now we can see why the actor is on board for the upcoming biopic.

4

James Franco will reportedly play Hugh Hefner in a biopic about porn actress Linda Lovelace.

As for Lindsay Lohan, the resemblance to Elizabeth Taylor is stronger when the actress is sporting shorter dark hair, but we can see it in the eyes.

Taking a stand for the working stiff RE: “BLAME THE WORKERS, NOT CORPORATIONS”: Overseas prod-

ucts make American companies wealthier and kill jobs and America’s economy. It is sad to realize that some have put money above their country. JEAN KAZADI, VIA E-MAIL There is no comparison of living standards between USA and other countries such as China, India and Mexico. Living standards are very much cheaper in those countries; that is why minimum wages should be higher here. Why blame the hardworking people whose incomes never improve? KASSAHUN SELLASSIE, VIA E-MAIL

Big Business cuts financial costs while investing profits overseas, avoiding American

laws and taxes. Example: For lower gas prices, Big Oil enriches sworn enemies of America, aka Bush-family buddies. Patriotic? No, treason! J. ANDREW SMITH, VIA E-MAIL

Not all corporations are unscrupulous, but let’s take a good look at what the greedy ones do. Take, for example, Wal-Mart. None of its employees are unionized, therefore their salaries and benefits are very low. In fact, a good portion of Wal-Mart employees do not have any benefits because they are not allowed to work a 40-hour week. The dynamics that create lower prices at Wal-Mart and other places are also undercutting the ability of many, many workers to have a stable life, thus heading us toward a lifestyle resembling that of

Corporations exist to make profit. However, when large corporations move jobs overseas, these profits are shielded from taxation, while nonprofitable stateside operations generate large tax write-offs, which is how GE can make huge profits while paying no tax. Legal, yes. Good for Americans? No. Corporate control of our legislators and media has led to the working class working against their own best interests. ERIC BLOCK, VIA E-MAIL

To pro-business overlords and anti-union writers, I’d suggest they join us all in the real world. It’s not unions moving work, slashing jobs and committing massive multibilliondollar global fraud while doubling or tripling the pay of the five top officers.

Gemini May 21-June 20. New channels are likely to be opened, enabling you to add to your resources. It won’t be luck that makes it happen, it’ll be a lot of elbow grease. Cancer June 21-July 22. A powerful desire to explore fresh avenues of self-expression could be extremely strong within you. However, if you’re going to indulge, measure both the good and bad aspects. Leo July 23-Aug. 22. You’ll feel better about yourself if you first complete what you have on the drawing board before launching a new endeavor. Rewards for doing so are at hand — don’t get off course. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22. An interesting development having to do with your social life could be looming. Chances are it will involve someone you’ve wanted to meet for quite some time. Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 23. Make it a point to elevate your expectations regarding what you’d like to get out of your job or career. Don’t allow self-doubt to cause you to believe that your goals are unattainable. Scorpio Oct. 24-Nov. 22. Although you’re in a cycle where you’re likely to be something of a visionary, if you hope to make your dreams a reality, you must still be pragmatic about what you want.

Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19. An alliance in which you’re now involved has mutual benefits to share, but you must nurture it properly if you want it to continue to offer its bounty. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 19. Although at times you might have temporarily experienced some disenchantment with your work, you’ve never felt impelled to change jobs. Once again any career problems will pass. Pisces Feb. 20-March 20. Go with the flow, but don’t depend on a new contact to help you advance a commercial endeavor. It could be unsettling if your acquaintance falls short. Aries March 21-April 19. Although your patience at times might be pushed beyond its breaking point, you won’t give up on whatever it is you’re doing — mostly because you can see the results in your mind.

On stage:

MARY MCCARTNEY

Now this is a familiar face, innit?

James McCartney’s time to shine is ‘Close at Hand’ If you’re a singing, songwriting musician with a name like McCartney, you are unlikely to be ignored. Over the past few years, James McCartney quietly released two digital EPs, “Available Light” and “Close at Hand,” which were gathered along with five new songs to create his first album, ‘’The Complete EP Collection.” McCartney played a few dates here and there, too, but all without playing up his heritage as the son of Paul and Linda McCartney — both of whom he bears an uncanny likeness to. Still, he didn’t have a problem pulling a crowd or garnering press attention, especially when he played Liverpool’s Cavern Club this spring, a union that needs no explanation. McCartney’s first North American tour, which includes stops at Bamboozle and Sasquatch festivals, brings him through Philly this weekend. McCartney says he already loves touring and life on the road. “Traveling and touring is a great opportunity to combine work with pleasure — and in fact, I do have a bit of a vagabond spirit, bohemian even, sometimes,” he tells us. “Actually, this is my first time performing at festivals, so I don’t know [what to think]. I’m really just excited to have the experience this time around.” LINDA LABAN

Grouplove In Chinese astrology, Ian Astbury is a tiger. “A tiger moving through the forest,” the singer for The Cult clarifies. “That’s a hunting tiger.” Astbury pauses before finishing the ethos by which he stakes his live performance: “I like the idea of waiting for your prey in the shadow, and then striking at the right moment.” The right moment has come yet again for The Cult, the veteran U.K. band whose icon status is once again reaffirmed with last month’s release of “Choice of Weapon.” Braiding the disparate strains of predecessors like Led Zeppelin, Joy Division, David Bowie and The Doors with the aesthetics of Native American mystics, The Cult’s near-30-year sound continues to mature on the new release. “Choice of Weapon” hits an elusive sweet spot where an established band can brandish experience without rehashing old successes — and where the physical and artistic results of age become a sharpening stone upon which their music is honed.

rus-drenched riffing of founding guitarist Billy Duffy and the hammering rhythm of drummer John Tempesta and bassist Chris Wyse, Astbury’s unmistakable voice — a liquid vibrato thrown against weather-beaten leather — has rarely sounded better. There’s a throatier character to it and a lot more lowend. Astbury calls it finesse. “When you’re a kid and you go out there, you’re incredibly earnest,” he says. “Your adrenals are screaming. And when you’re in front of an audience, when you get out there for the first time, it can be so incredibly overwhelming and exciting and you respond to that. But over a period of time, you begin to understand the finesse, the

control, how to really ground yourself as a performer. And after that, you can really get so much more out of different energies.” Astbury talks a lot about energies, not unlike the Native American imagery that dots his lyrics, informs his fashion and has appeared on many of his band’s album covers. When he discusses today’s musical landscape and the influence of classic rock bands on his own group, he talks like a chief who has woefully watched others taint the beautiful terrain. “We were lucky enough to be on the tail end of the great superpredators,” he says. “We kind of got around before the land was turned into megachurches and strip malls, we got to experience the wide open spaces, and see some of those performers in their prime. It really had a major effect on plugging into an original source, which allows us to create in the way we have.” JIM FENNER

Q&A: Evolution You’re touring with Against Me! and there’s been a lot of press around Tom Gabel and his sexual reassignment and debut as Laura Jean Grace. Can you give any perspective? I completely support Laura’s choice to be any way she wishes to be. What I’m really surprised about is the amount of attention it’s gotten, with raised eyebrows. I mean, my God, it’s 2012. Are we really that uptight? People are so easily scandalized. She’s such a beautiful person, and unbelievable musician. She has a beautiful family, and the band is so gifted and has amazing connection. He’s very special. She’s very special. I absolutely respect her wishes. It’s beautiful. The tour in some ways has been a well-kept secret. The people who are being rewarded are the ones coming to the shows. The people who saw her perform that first night saw something truly exceptional.

3 Honored Lieberthal on Wall of Fame Former catcher Mike Lieberthal will be enshrined Aug. 10 on the Phillies’ Wall of Fame He is the 34th overall member and joins fellow backstops, Bob Boone and Darren Daulton. Lieberthal, 40, was the Phillies’ firstround pick in 1990 and played in South Philly for 13 seasons. “What a tremendous honor it is to be added to the Wall of Fame along with some of the greatest players in Phillies history,” Lieberthal said.

What went wrong on Thursday: Dodgers 8, Phillies 3 Up next: at Baltimore, Friday, 7:05 (CSN) Saturday, 4:05 (CSN) Sunday, 1:35 (PHL17)

1

Hanging Chad. Before

Chad Qualls came on in relief, the game was technically close. The Phillies were only down 4-3 heading into the ninth. However, there was no jam in the building, to quote Flyers coach Peter Laviolette, despite the 235th straight sellout at CBP. Even the Phils’ big inning — a three-run third — was fueled by two Dodger errors.

2

Back at the singles bar. Despite racking

up 10 hits on the afternoon, the Phils failed to register an extra-base hit. That’s not a typo. All 10 of them were singles. In their last 11 home games, the Phils are hitting just .223 (29-for130) at the Bank.

3

Defense rests. One of the hallmarks during the Phils’ run of five straight NL East titles has been defense. Not anymore. They booted three balls, including two from fill-in third baseman Ty Wigginton, and one from 2B Mike Fontenot. Wigginton’s gaffes in the fourth allowed an unearned run to score and forced Cole Hamels to throw 13 extra pitches. METRO/MG

WEEKEND, JUNE 8-10, 2012

Manuel: ‘You can hold me accountable’ Charlie Manuel said he usually measures how frustrated he is by how hot his face gets. How hot is that mug? “Pretty damn hot,” he said. Manuel has trotted out every lineup imaginable, pushed every button he can and his team won’t respond. Even as the injuries contin-

ue to pile up — the Phils are down to four regulars (Jimmy Rollins, Hunter Pence, Shane Victorino, Carlos Ruiz) — the skipper won’t make any excuses. If you want to blame someone, blame Charlie. “When I signed on to take this job eight years ago, seven years ago, or whatever it was, I

signed on to win,” he said, “and I’m still here to win. And you can hold me accountable for anything our team does and I mean that.” Manuel will never panic. It’s still early June. But he’s also watching the same games you are. He sees the same mistakes and missed opportuni-

ties you do. And if he sees something, like a lack of effort from his players, he’s going to read them the riot act. “If I say something, let me tell you, I’ll never regret it,” Manuel said. “I’m that honest. I’m that straight forward and everything I do is right in front of you.” METRO/MG

Phils straight up swept away by LA Dodgers Fightins’ stretch losing streak to season-worst six games Hamels tagged with loss in 8-3 defeat Team has lost its swagger, fear factor GETTY IMAGES

Before Thursday’s game, 1980s pop princess Paula Abdul posed for a photo with Phillies skipper Charlie Manuel. Abdul danced with the Phillie Phanatic and her chart-toppers blared over the stadium speakers all day but the result was the same, another Phillies loss. So straight up now tell me, Charlie … what exactly is the problem? “We don’t scare nobody. We used to have a swagger. We used to be kind of cocky in a real good way, and teams used to fear us,” Manuel said, after Thursday’s 8-3 loss to the Dodgers. “Teams don’t fear us no more. I’m sorry, I don’t see it. I’m answering that question really honestly.” By the top of the ninth inning, after Chad Qualls surrendered four runs, fans started to head for the exits. One loud, audible, “Qualls, you suck” chant rung out — and even the famed “Chooch” chants started blending in with the jeers. Following a four-game sweep by Los Angeles, that is now six straight losses for the Fightin’ Phils. They are three games below .500 and six games out of first place. It is the team’s longest losing streak since an eight-game drought last September. “We had a rough home stand here,” Manuel added. “We need to win some games.” Looking up at the scoreboard in the sixth, the Phillies had out-hit the Dodgers, 8-6, yet they found themselves trailing 4-3 after L.A. tagged Cole Hamels for three runs.

Paula Abdul dances with the Phillie Phanatic on Thursday. Abdul’s dance moves couldn’t wake up the crowd — or the Phillies — in an 8-3 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers.

John Mayberry Jr. went 0-for4 with two strikeouts.

The Dodgers might have snuck one more across, too, if not for a base-running mistake by Tony Gwynn Jr. Ironically, the Phillies’ current losing streak started the last time Hamels took the mound. “Well, since I obviously started this losing streak and we’re still on the losing streak, it’s not fun,” Hamels said. “I hate to lose. I got two losses.” Hamels (8-3, 2.93 ERA), who gave up four runs (three earned) on six hits in six innings, had been turning in a

Cy Young-worthy campaign through his first nine starts. Since then, he’s compiled a 5.23 ERA. Hamels had a 20-inning scoreless streak snapped in the fourth. And he seemed visibly frustrated on the hill after surrendering the lead in the sixth. “It’s frustrating because you want to battle and we get the lead, and then we gave it up,” Hamels said.

Office space: Birds shake up nest

GETTY IMAGES

Banner out as president, Smolenski in All part of Lurie’s ‘executive succession plan’ Power struggle? No one inside the NovaCare Complex will admit it. That would betray the veil of secrecy they hold dear — and paint the company in a bad light. However, the announcement that Joe Banner was being replaced as Eagles president had everything to with losing a power struggle with Andy Reid. As a result, Banner will stay employed as a strategic advisor, while Don Smolenski takes the reins as president. GM Howie Roseman will also take on a more aggressive role. Reid’s status remains the same. Owner Jeffrey Lurie called it an “executive succession plan.” “I’m fired up to be here for the reason that two men get to fulfill dreams,” Reid said Thursday. “I know what Joe has wanted to do and has had the opportunity to do, and I know the great things he has done here.

Quoted

“There is no doubt that there’s a huge hole in this experience, as amazing as it’s been, having not won a Super Bowl.” JOE BANNER

He succeeded at being the best president in the National Football League.” The whispers were that Banner had too much power, that he was challenging Reid on personnel decisions. The coach brushed those rumors aside. “I had final say on the decisions. All the good ones. Joe did all the bad ones,” Reid said

laughing. “No, listen, I had final decision on all of them.” Banner will remain on the payroll, but he didn’t mince words. He plans to resurface with another organization, to build his own legacy and help turn around a new franchise. “If I were looking to buy an NFL franchise or any sports franchise, or was an owner that was feeling his organization wasn’t maximizing, this is a phenomenal opportunity to find an executive that could do everything to make you successful,” Lurie said. Banner said he’s fielded multiple calls from potential suitors in the past 24 hours. “I just love the game and the jigsaw puzzle part of the chess game,” he said. “My efforts will really be focused on staying and trying to do something in the NFL.” MIKE GREGER
