Google Upgrades Earth

Google’s press gathering on June 6 addressed each of these challenges. For instance, with the new Google Earth Offline capability (available “soon”), mobile users will be able to download a map (the example shown was the city of London) and save it offline. When they arrive at their destination, they will be able to Zoom in and out to any location in the vicinity, and the “blue dot” will accurately geolocate and compass the user on the map.

Apple Updates Its Notebooks To kick off Apple’s annual developer conference, CEO Tim Cook and his team of veeps hit the stage to announce not only new software but also a slew of updated and new hardware. The big hardware story of the day is the so-called next generation MacBook Pro. Armed with the world’s highest resolution notebook screen, the new MBP’s LCD rightfully earns the Retina nomenclature. Built around a quad-core Intel i7 processor, up to 768 GB of flash storage, 16 GB of RAM and a shiny new Nvidia graphics chip, Apple’s outdone itself this time. This also marks the first time an Apple notebook has come with a full HDMI port on top of the usual I/O suspects: USB (bumped to 3.0), Thunderbolt (this MBA has 2 ports, now available with Gigabit Ethernet and FireWire adapters) and an SD card slot to boot. This new form factor goes without an optical drive in order to attain the stellar 7-hour battery life and a profile nearly as skinny as Apple’s own MacBook Air. Miraculously, it starts shipping today at $2199. Apple also took the time to update its other notebook offerings to include shiny new Ivy Bridge-based Intel processors, USB 3.0, updated Nvidia graphics, bigger available SSDs and lowered prices to boot. All in all, these notebook updates didn’t disappoint the Apple-fanboy throngs at WWDC.—BN

years, and Street Views are still not available in some areas. Sometimes the maps don’t align well, and mobile users with no WiFi access often can’t log in at all.

More than a billion users access Google Earth each month, said executives of the company today, as they unveiled several key upgrades to the service. The upgrades provide an easier experience for mobile users and a much richer experience for connected computers, but there’s still a lot of room for growth. Overall, today’s announcements were mostly incremental—and came with nebulous availability dates. Industry watchers speculated that the announcement was pulled together quickly to preempt anticipated news from Apple at its upcoming worldwide developers conference. Google Earth, which was created by the acquisition of KeyHole in 2001 and includes the oft-used Google Maps, rapidly became one of the company’s most popular resources. Within a few months of the acquisition, Google Earth was using almost half of the company’s bandwidth. But the experience has a variety of well-documented shortcomings. For example, many places around the globe were not mapped for

Google said it uses cars, trikes, boats, snowmobiles and even backpacks to provide not just Street Views, but also rivers, ski slopes and other terrain of interest to travelers and others—such as views of urban areas, art museums and other public venues. As a result, more than 70 percent of the people on the planet today could use Google Earth and Street Views to locate and see their own home. The big news of the day was an upgrade to Google’s 3-D capabilities, which began in 2003 with “extruded” buildings and moved on in 2005 to the introduction of photorealistic models of key buildings, followed by various improvements to this technology through 2008. Now, Google contracts airplanes to do highly controlled flyovers of urban areas and then, through a process they call stereophotogrammetry, they use multiple views of the location, combined with detailed graphic data to create not just stereoscopic, but full 3-D models of the entire flyover zone. Curiously, the 3-D mapping presentation was shown using an iPad. Google said support for Android and iOS devices would be available “in coming weeks.”—DH

SanJoseInside.com An inside look at San Jose politics

County Wants to Set RDA Record Straight!!! IT’S NOT OFTEN a news release from a government official includes quotes with exclamation points and all CAPS. Either Santa Clara County Executive Jeff Smith has an overly excited stenographer or he’s mad as hell with the city of San Jose and he’s not gonna take it anymore. Smith’s beef with the city stems from a disagreement on where repayment from Redevelopment Agency debt should go, and what he calls “misleading and inaccurate statements” to Wall Street by San Jose officials “about the City’s inability to meet its obligations on redevelopment agency debt.” As one city employee tells San Jose Inside, “This is going to turn into such a pissing match.” Or as David Vossbrink, the city’s director of communications, puts it: “I’ve been in this business for nearly 40 years, and I’ve never seen a news release that was expressed quite this way.” Without further ado, let’s go to Smith’s thoughts about the city’s supposed default. “These assertions are simply untrue!” he said. “The City will NOT default upon their redevelopment bonds unless they make an intentional effort to do so. Nothing that the auditor-controller has done, or will do, will cause the City to default!” When the state basically killed RDAs, a new law required municipalities to report financial information on how they will pay off their debt. The county claims that San Jose has purposely delayed providing that information. Meanwhile, the city is considering suing the county for the $19 million the county is holding up from going to bondholders. We could listen to County Finance Director Vinod Sharma’s measured thoughts on the issue, but it’s much more entertaining to focus on

Smith’s quotes in the press release: “If the City would simply comply with the state law by producing accurate and timely financial data, the Auditor-Controller and the state could do their jobs and develop a revenue disbursement plan that assures a smooth transition,” Smith continued. “The ‘cry wolf ’ approach that has apparently been adopted by the City staff is NOT an effective financial management tool, and shows an enormous disrespect to the RDA bondholders. The truth is that there will NOT be a default upon San Jose RDA bonded debt! Period!” Well, I guess that’s that. Move along. No more to see here.

City Gaffe Kills Libraries Initiative IN ONE of the biggest blunders in recent local politics, San Jose city officials admitted this week that they provided false information to organizers of the Save San Jose Libraries initiative regarding the number of signatures needed to place a measure on the November ballot. As a result, the initiative—an effort that has been in the works for more than year—is unlikely to make it to voters.

CUBESOULS

A memo from City Clerk Dennis Hawkins to city staff Thursday admitted that organizers were told that they needed to gather more signatures than 5 percent of registered voters in San Jose to qualify for the November ballot. when, in fact, the necessary percentage is 15. Peter Allen, an organizer for Save San Jose Libraries and SJI columnist, said the city provided incorrect information to organizers dating back to March 2012. “They pretty much effectively killed our campaign,” he said. “It’s another example of city staff screwing up and trying to put the blame on others. It’s going to subvert the will of the people on a massive scale—40,000 registered voters.” That number is the amount of signatures Save San Jose Libraries gathered and planned on turning in last week, Allen said. While Hawkins expressed regret in his memo, he added that there is no legal obligation on the city to provide accurate information on the requirements to place an initiative on the ballot. “It’s pretty obvious no one at City Hall in management knows what’s going on,” Allen said. “If something like this can happen, what else do they have confused? Should we go back and look at their analysis of Measure B?” —Josh Koehn

In the gallery, there’s even a ghostly-white chair one sits in, solely to contemplate the wreckage of what was probably the first instance in a long history of San Jose systematically destroying the exotic within itself. One can view

tiny fragments of shattered pottery, opium pipes, dirt remnants, discarded bottles, fish vertebrae and more. For those unfamiliar with the story, in the late 19th century a thriving Chinatown existed right where the Fairmont Hotel now sits. A conciliatory plaque graces the outside of the building, but it only scratches the surface. At the height of its existence, the Market Street Chinatown was the largest Chinese community anywhere in the United States outside of San Francisco. The neighborhood thrived both economically and culturally from the 1860s until an arsonist torched the area in 1887. One hundred years later, as RDA-funded bulldozers upended the dirt in order to prepare for the Fairmont, archeologists unearthed what was left from a century earlier and discovered one of the most important excavation sites of

overseas Chinese materials in the United States at the time. Unfortunately, the scientists were not allowed to perform a complete excavation, since San Jose’s quest to have a reputable hotel was more important, but the archeologists were indeed able to salvage what they could. Which turned out to be more than 4,000 objects. Today, History San José oversees the collection of artifacts, but Stanford students in Barbara Voss’ anthropology classes have pored through the materials for years, cataloging them in order to make them accessible to the public. Artist Rene Yung, herself an immigrant who made the same journey to America a century after the fire, has now assembled 60 of the artifacts to present “City Beneath the City.” As I’ve said before, beneath the native lies the exotic. Oddly enough, that’s precisely the impression one gets at this show. The space-time continuum–shattering juxtaposition of contemporary vs. past, of native vs. exotic, emerges from the exhibit. In a normal scenario, a contemporary gallery exhibits that which is contemporary, meaning work that represents the current “now.” In this case, however,

stories from the past are viewed through a contemporary lens. That lens is the theme of the 2012 ZERO1 Biennial, Seeking Silicon Valley, and “City Beneath the City” is presented in conjunction with the biennial. Since most of us understand by now that Silicon Valley is more a state of mind, an idea, a network, than one geographical place with a nonsensical “capital,” the biennial theme encourages artists to contemplate and search for what Silicon Valley means to them. “City Beneath the City” does exactly that. It searches for what used to be here more than 100 years ago, drawing attention to the multilayered history of this region. It is not an exhibit of mere objects but a framing of the stories left behind by those objects. In other words, “City Beneath the City” is not an exhibit of representation as one would normally see in a gallery; rather, it is an exploration of absence. Each object has a relationship with the unknown, the forgotten and the ignored. “And it is that unknown that I hope will speak to visitors of what they know,” writes Yung. “Of inhabiting place and time, of sharing in community, of seeking to survive and thrive. This installation continues my interest in tracing forgotten histories embedded in present spaces. The gaps, the silences, the unknown, are an integral part of the weave and patterning of the work.” In the show, display pedestals feature keywords like “destroy,” “resurface” and “nuisance.” Those words could describe any era of San Jose history, but they work perfectly for this exhibit. For example, the pedestal marked “remains” features a bag of fish vertebrae. They resemble children’s toys, almost like miniLegos. As I finish writing this column, sitting in the San Jose Fairmont lounge, my appreciation of creation and destruction is greatly enhanced. I have discovered the exotic beneath the native.

Slush Fun

WHEN IT COMES TO NIGHTSPOT COOL , SAN JOSE’S NEW BLUSH WON’ T SET TLE FOR ANY THING SHORT OF ICE COLD

M

OST nightspots have to take their chances trying to master the elusive art of cool. San Jose’s Blush went straight to science. When Blush owners Russ Fukushima and Taylor Kim decided to start a nightclub in San Jose, they toured the country from San Diego to Las Vegas to Miami and back. They discovered all kinds of niche trends that hadn’t yet made it to the South Bay yet, but the one that really clicked with them was frozen, blended cocktails. If they could come up with their own version in San Jose, they reasoned, they could engineer their own kind of cool. “We wanted to do a spin on that, and have a sexy, elegant cocktail,” says Fukushima. So they’ve spent the last two years experimenting with recipes, taking their slushie pursuit to obsessive levels. “We actually had one of the machines in one of our homes,” he says. “It was a good time.” All that cold-case work resulted in the Blush, the signature cocktail that has been

part of their menu of slush drinks since the Blush Raw Bar Lounge opened in San Pedro Square Market in April. “It’s going off like wildfire,” says Fukushima. But it’s not just chemistry behind the Blush approach. There’s a philosophical aspect as well, believe it or not. A frozen drink can’t be downed like a shot—though Blush does have a full bar in addition to its specialty menu, the slow-acting slushes take the emphasis away from the wham-bam-thank-you-barman approach to imbibing and suggest a longer, more relaxed vibe. “The cocktail creates a different experience,” says Fukushima. “We don’t want to be a nightclub. We consider ourselves a lounge. We want to present a comfortable, come-asyou-are atmosphere.” Similarly, they brought a different approach to their menu. “We wanted to bring a raw concept here. Not just sushi, not just oysters. Everything is based on raw protein,” he says. The industrial, ultramodern look of Blush

ties the owners’ conceptual threads together. Perhaps it shouldn’t be surprising that Kim and Fukushima were able to make their ideas work together—they’ve been best friends since growing up together in Hawaii. They’d talked about doing a place together for years, but the idea started to seem a lot more KEILEY WOLFF realistic when Kim moved down to Northern California from Seattle. “It got the point where we were just having beers and said ‘Why are we talking? Let’s just do it,’” remembers Fukushima, who went into the project with a decade’s experience in the restaurant business. Expansion and franchising could be in their future, but for now, they’re just happy to see the response Blush has had so far. “We’ve got a buzz going on,” he says. “San Jose needed something like this. It’s classy. It’s refreshing.” Sort of like an ice-cold drink.—Steve Palopoli BLUSH RAW BAR LOUNGE Inside San Pedro Market Square, 110 N. Almaden Ave., San Jose

Pagoda, Jessica Shirley-Donnelly

T

HIS SPRING, downtown San Jose’s Pagoda Lounge completed its transformation into what booker Thomas Ramon Aguilar likes to call a “global center” when it closed its restaurant and became a full-time club. Indeed, Aguilar, who has been overseeing the “Live at the Pagoda” series since 2010, has made it one of the hottest spots in the South Bay for emerging bands and musical subcultures. From the electro of Little Dragon and the recent Mansions on the Moon to the hip-hop/jazz fusion of Jose James to the jazz revolution of the Robert Glasper Experiment, with all kinds of Latin, ambient and turntablist experiments throughout, Pagoda has made its mark. Aguilar now sees the opportunity to expand the club’s musical offerings each week, with band residencies and recurring events. “I want to make the Pagoda synonymous with live music,” he says.

BRIX BARTENDER STEVEN SH EEHAN SHOWED PALM SPRINGS CONTEST HOW THE 408 POURS

F

OR Steven Sheehan, the San Jose bartender who won the Palm Springs Summer Splash Cocktail Challenge, bartending is really just a side job. He teaches English as a second language and is currently a University of San Francisco student studying organizational behavior and leadership. Bartending, which he’s been doing for the last 12 years, is just a way to get him through school, but at the end of May, he found himself representing San Jose and Brix Nightclub with his own creation at the Palm Springs Summer Splash Cocktail Challenge. His cocktail, the “Pom Springs Fling”— made of Stoli white pomegranate, pomegranate Schnapps, soda water and 7UP, simple syrup, muddled cucumber, mint and a squeeze of lime— beat out bartenders from 12 cities, including New York and Las Vegas. “It’s a very refreshing, light drink,” Sheehan explains. “When I made it, I thought, what would celebrities drink down by the pool in Palm Springs?” The criteria for judging in Palm Springs included the cocktail, the presentation and the performance; Sheehan’s was a 1950s Elvis number. “I wore my leather jacket, my ’50s glasses, my pompadour—I channeled Elvis for a bit,” he says. “I was a little bit nervous. I’m not a big performer.” Sheehan has been at Brix for three of the five years the club has been open, and he said most of the time he thinks up his drinks off the top of his head. “Customers always ask us make something new,” he says. “They always want us to make something up.” Just the other night, he said, a bachelorette party group asked for a drink, and he made a lemon-meringue wedding-cake cocktail on the fly. For his winning cocktail, though, he spent some time working on it and tested it on other people. Winning in Palm Springs didn’t come with a cash prize but with bragging rights. “It’s validation after 12 years of bartending,” Sheehan says. “It’s good to know that I know what flavors go good together.” Another bonus for Sheehan was winning the competition on behalf of San Jose. “I had to represent San Jose—put us on the map.” Originally from Costa Rica, Sheehan moved around a lot–– high school in South Korea, middle school in Guam—before landing in San Jose. This moving, he said, has made him want to experience different cultures. When he graduates in December, he hopes to get into international human resources work for Silicon Valley companies like Apple or Google. “I’m a mover. It’s really hard for me to stay in one place,” he says.—Matt Miller

Imagine a city where over 125 languages are spoken. Where diverse neighborhoods have their own richness. Where artists and entrepreneurs have come to pursue their passions. The result? A 160-year old city infused with vitality and beauty. It’s why Oakland was ranked #5 in the world as a travel destination by The New York Times. Come for a weekend. Discover why we love it.

But stir a tablespoon or two into any drink and let it sit for at least 10 minutes, preferably in a cold place, and the tiny seeds become surrounded by a force field of flavorful gel, increasing the size of each seed about 500 percent. On their own, the seeds are flavorless. But they soak up and amplify the flavor of any liquid, and the resulting concoction resembles tapioca bubble tea or boba. Try leaving seeds in some coconut milk overnight and adding fruit in the morning; blended or stirred, it’s an incredible taste that plays with the senses. Chia seeds have about five grams of fat per serving, over half of which are omega-3 or omega-6 fats, the “good” kind also found in avocado and salmon. They also contain about six grams of fiber per serving and three grams of protein—and don’t forget calcium and iron, things not easily attainable in a vegan diet.—Nicolas Grizzle

46 MORTON’S STEAKHOUSE Steakhouse. $$$$. Morton’s, a Chicago-based chain of restaurants with more than 80 locations across the U.S. and abroad, offers delicious, premium-priced steaks. The rest of the menu is a mixed bag. 5:30-11pm Mon-Sat, 5-10pm Sun. 177 Park Ave. 408.947.7000.

MUCHOS Mexican. $. A small player with a big rotisserie, this taqueria cultivates a devout lunch following. All standards get billing, but the mesquiteroasted chicken is the star. Beer. 11am-10pm daily. 72 E. Santa Clara St. 408.277.0333. NAGLEE PARK GARAGE New American. $$. Lots of restaurants would like to think of themselves as friendly neighborhood joints but few

deliver. The Garage does. Small but satisfying menu of wellexecuted comfort food classics. 5-9:30pm Tue-Thu, 5-10pm Fri, 9am-1pm, 5-10pm Sat, 9am1pm Sun. 505 E. San Carlos St. 408.286.1100.

NHA TOI Vietnamese. $$$. Nha Toi is the place for northern-style Vietnamese food—less sweet than southern Vietnamese food and less spicy than the food of central Vietnam, yet it makes wider uses of aromatic ingredients 9am10pm daily. 460 E. William St. 408.294.2733.

PAOLO’S New Italian. $$$$. Filled with artistic spins on California-meets-Italy, the kitchen turns out elegant entrees spearheaded by seasonal vegetables. The impeccable service compensates for the modest

portions. Full bar. 11:30am2:30pm Mon-Fri, 5:30-10pm Mon-Sat. 323 W. San Carlos St. 408.294.2558.

POOR HOUSE BISTRO New Orleans. $$. Poor House Bistro offers a low-priced menu of Crescent City classics like po’ boys, barbecued shrimp, gumbo and muffaletta. Live music on Fridays and Saturdays. 11am-9pm MonThu, 11am-10pm Fri-Sat, 10am-8pm Sun; brunch 10am2pm Sun. 91 S. Autumn St. 408.292.5837. WING’S Chinese. $. The food is complemented by an exotic dining room with sequestered seating equipped with hanging beads and doorbells, and other miscellaneous peculiarities of a bygone era. Always a fun place to visit. 11:30am9:30pm daily. 131 E. Jackson St. 408.294.3303 or 998.9427.

KAT PARRA

M.I.R.V.

Affinity @ Hilton, San Jose Wed – 7:30pm; free

Avalon, Santa Clara Thu– 7:30pm; $15/$18

San Jose’s Kat Parra is like a onewoman international jazz festival. First making her mark on the Bay Area scene as the lead singer in the salsa band Charanga Nueve, she is hugely influenced by the Afro-Cuban greats. But the Silicon Valley native has drawn from across continents, including the traditions she encountered growing up in South America. She’s also explored her own cultural heritage, bringing the traditional music of Spain’s Sephardic Jews to jazz. Her irrepressible curiosity about and respect for cultures around the world is constantly expanding the borders of her sounds. (SP)

Back in early ’90s, funk-metal ruled the bay. Most of those bands filled clubs, but their sweaty, manic energy didn’t translate to records. Primus made the leap because they were so weird. Mr. Bungle did because they were even weirder. But the other bands, like Fungo Mungo, who always put on a super fun goofy, funk show, fell flat outside of the Bay Area club scene despite scoring a record deal. The Limbomaniacs, a raunchy funkrap group, released one modest record before dissolving. Out of their ashes emerged M.I.R.V, whose sound was less funky and more quirky-heavy-alternative. They

flirted with mainstream radio and MTV briefly but had staying power in their native NorCal. (AC)

THE DIRTY HAND FAMILY BAND Caravan, San Jose Thu– 8pm; $5 If you’re looking for a raunchy punk-rock hootenanny, look no further than the Dirty Hand Family Band. They mix country, rockabilly and old-timey blues with a lot of punk rock energy and some Tom Waits theatrics. They’re like a twisted version of a backwoods strip-club bar band from the ’50s, back when all the adults were afraid that Elvis’ wild dance moves were corrupting the youth of America—meanwhile, the real dingy stuff was tucked away in dark clubs. The singer has a commanding voice that walks a

line between evil carnival barker and an old country crooner. (AC)

ME THE MOUNTAIN The Refuge, Cupertino Sat – 7pm; $10 Long gone are the days of making fun of Stryper’s bumblebee outfits— Christian metal is huge. Thanks to bands like Devil Wears Prada, As I Lay Dying and especially Underoath, God-fearing metalcore in particular has been converting the mainstream in numbers no one thought possible. San Jose’s Me the Mountain got in on the action last summer with their debut album Speak, and unlike some of the cagier are-we-or-aren’t-we

Christian metal bands, these six guys don’t beat around the burning bush, mixing personal and religious themes and even reaching into biblical apocrypha for allusions to the archangel of Death in “Azrael” (no, he wasn’t just Gargamel’s cat). The band will kick off a summer tour of cities around the country at this show. Leaders, A City in Arms, Chasing Truth and more also perform. (SP)

DIRTY ODD SEVEN Blank Club, San Jose Fri – 9pm; $8 Let’s hope none of the band members of Dirty Odd Seven decide to leave. They’d have to change their name. With seven members from various local groups—including Horchata, INQ, The Flames and Shovelhead—DOS enthrall with an amalgamation of

:CP;<:8IJFE Studio 8; San Jose Friday – 9pm; $20 after 11pm Clyde Carson and his East Bay crew “The Team” were early players in the hyphy rap scene. They even scored a modest regional hit, the spastic “It’s Getting Hot” back in the day. As a solo artist, Carson has made a near 180-degree turn in his sound, opting for some smooth, low-key-sexual, club rap, like artists Big Sean and Tyga, who are so low-key even their flow is near idle. But unlike some of the younger club rappers, there does seem to still be some elements of hyphy lurking around in Carson’s songs, particularly in the occasional

upbeat dissonant keyboard loops he raps over. Carson comes to Studio 8 to promote his new song, “Slow Down,” which, as its name suggests, is a particularly low-key booty shaker. (AC)

*mon DP;8IB<JK ;8PJ HP Pavilion, San Jose Mon – 6pm; $28-$86.50 There are a lot of reasons to hate Nickelback, but the main one has got to be that they’re just so deathly dull. It’s impossible to tell if they take their clichéd sound, ripped off from a dozen better bands (Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Alice in Chains, etc.) seriously, or if their overly slick angst is one more unit-

shifting maneuver maneuver. But somehow lead singer Chad Kroeger did manage to find another Canadian hard-rock act that improves on their own formula. Unlike Nickelback, My Darkest Days doesn’t take themselves seriously, as their big hit “Porn Star Dancing” proves. They just want to party, so much so they almost take their shtick beyond post-grunge and all the way back to the glory days of the Sunset Strip sleaze-metal scene. They’ll open for Nickelback, Bush and Seether at this show. (SP)

I<>LC8KFI Johnny V’s, San Jose Tue – 9pm; free

Just last week at BFD, Pennywise gave a shout out onstage to Bad

Brains, and it was strange to hear the band’s new singer Zoli Teglas talk about them like they were some big secret. But damn, maybe he’s right. Despite the fact that they are in some circles one of the most beloved hardcore bands of all time, in others the groundbreaking D.C. punks are virtually unknown—or even worse, dismissed as some kind of oddball cult band. That’s never been a problem in the South Bay, where popular locals Insolence have proudly touted Bad Brains’ reggae-punk fusion as a huge influence on their own music for years. (More recently, Them Rude Boys have also acknowledged their debt to Bad Brains as they’ve come up in the scene.) Even our Bad Brains cover band goes way back—formed by members of not only Insolence but also Skinlab and Hippie Aggression, Regulator began pounding out tribute sets over a decade ago. (SP)

<dfGi\q “IT’S THE EARLY 19th century/ And we’re gonna take this country back/ For people like us.” With this battle cry begins Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson, a rock musical about populism, celebrity culture and the seventh president of the United States. The play, which opened Saturday at San Jose Stage Company, portrays Jackson as what, in many ways, he was—the “rock star” of his day, a maverick who took on the Indians, the Brits and the dandified elites in Washington. But here, Old Hickory wears really, really tight jeans. He has groupies. He asks if we want to see his “stimulus package” and promises to fill us with “popula-jism.” And he sings emo music. Anachronism is the name of the game, providing most of the humor and drawing explicit connections between Jackson’s era and ours. Modern gadgets contrast with Thierry Chantrel’s rustic set. The ensemble cast, though dressed in vaguely period clothing, looks suspiciously like a gaggle of 21st-century hipsters. Modern vulgarisms (“There’s no place in democracy/ For your brand of aristocracy/ Take that shit back to Virginia/ Or Massachusetts, beyotch!”) crop up constantly.

Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson Runs through July 29; $25–$50 The Stage, 490 S. First St., San Jose

If you can imagine Fall Out Boy or Dashboard Confessional belting out a high school history textbook, you’ll have some sense of Bloody Bloody’s musical style. This mock-emo actually ends up being far better than its source material. Backed by a live band, the cast sings with in-your-face fervor, from the buoyant opener “Populism, Yea, Yea!” to the finale, a rocked-up version of “The Hunters of Kentucky,” a 19th-century tune written in honor of Jackson and used during his presidential campaigns. Jonathan Rhys Williams nails the youthful vitality that the starring role calls for, and even looks a bit like the image on the $20 bill. Other wonderful performances include Halsey Varady as Jackson’s wife Rachel, Jef Valentine as a mincing Martin Van Buren and Mari Magaloni as a narrator who, in a somewhat Pythonesque moment, is shot by Jackson. Stage regular Martin Rojas Dietrich plays John Quincy Adams and an ill-fated cobbler, while Will Springhorn, Jr. appears in a number of particularly hilarious roles, including Jackson’s father, a proud frontiersman who brutally attacks the cobbler for suggesting that big Eastern cities offer finer cobbling. It’s impossible not to see today’s politics in all of this—folksy, condescending politicians and their adoring fans—and with the 2012 presidential elections fast approaching, Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson could not have come to the Stage at a better time.—Sean Conwell

HEAVENLY SOUNDSC`ZbFYj\imXkfipY\^`ej `kjjldd\iZfeZ\ikj\i`\jk_`j=i`[Xp%

Star Performers GALAXIES AND MUSIC collide this summer as the Lick Observatory hosts its 32nd Music of the Spheres summer concert and lecture series, running June 16–Aug. 25, atop Mt. Hamilton. The evening programs take place over six Saturdays with concerts, lectures and a chance for attendees to observe the night sky through telescopes. “They can expect a one-of-a-kind experience,” says John Wareham, deputy director at the observatory. “The process of driving up Mt. Hamilton takes about 45 minutes from San Jose. It’s a unique drive that sets the stage.” If the weather allows, audience members can view through the observatory’s historic 36-inch Lick Telescope or the Nickel 40-inch telescope. Volunteers will be on hand with their own telescopes and knowledge in this field.

Music of the Spheres Saturday; 8:30pm Lick Observatory, Mt. Hamilton

The music series begins with the Singing Strings Trio and a talk from Richard Kron about “The Plurality of Inhabited Worlds: Astronomy and Popular Imagination, 1800–1917.” Doors open at 7:30pm, event starts at 8:30pm. Tickets start at $40.—Alyxandra Goodwin

Revivals THE BRADY BUNCH MOVIE (1995) The show the Family Circus kids watched when they wanted something to feel superior to is now the quote-along ďŹ lm experience. (Plays Jun 15-17 in San Jose at the Retro Dome.) (RvB)

(1941) The easy answer to â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the best American movie ever made?â&#x20AC;?

(Christopher George) waits for his chance. Pauline Kael was rightâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;at this stage, you can see the horses sagging under the weight of the stout riders. Howard Hawksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; interjection of surprise humor keeps the ďŹ lm young: like the moment of Wayne in a tight spot, not retreating, just riding backward. BILLED WITH

Mothering Russia THE IMPORTANT Russian director Andrei Zvyagintsevâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s third ďŹ lm, Elena, is a kind of thrillerâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;at least the urgent, cello-driven Philip Glass score mutters about violent tensions beneath the smooth surfaces. In the mausoleumlike ďŹ&#x201A;at of a rich Moscow citizen, joy is as ďŹ rmly excluded as dust. The ďŹ&#x201A;at remains silent except for the imbecile chatter of a TV. Its owner, the idle Vladimir (Andrey Smirnov), is a bald, virile and ruthless type on the lines of Alan Arkin or Harve Presnell. Vladimirâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wife, Elena (Nadezhda Markina), is a fat, sad woman in a rut of routineâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;waking in her single bed, tying her dull hair back at a vanity table and taking care of Vladimirâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s needs. Her dayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s errand is to fetch her pension money and deliver it far into the exurbs, where her layabout son, Sergey (Aleksey Rozin), from an earlier relationship lives. Elenaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grandson Sasha is ripe for crisis; heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about to get scooped up into the army unless he can bribe his way into college for the deferment. And Sasha gives no sign of being anything but a sullen donkey. Zvyagintsevâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s camera creeps up, catlike, on these Russians. He encourages speculation. How did Vladimir get his fortune? Perhaps not the clean way. The

businessmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very beautiful and very cold daughter, Katerina (Elena Lyadova), hates her father in that old-movie style, where the hatred is oversized and articulate. When her dad starts needling her to have a baby, <c\eX Katerina denounces his â&#x20AC;&#x153;rotten seed.â&#x20AC;? NR; 109 Min. Opens Friday, This ďŹ lm by the director of Camera 3, the allegorical The Return San Jose features uncommonly good sound editingâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;one of the best qualities of Hitchcockâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s thrillers, to which this ďŹ lmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been justly compared. The slow exploration of Elenaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s world is visually austere but alive with sound: the nattering of the TV, the croak of a crow circling in on the bare branches outside her balcony, the far-oďŹ&#x20AC; howl of car alarms. If thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a glaze of melodrama on Elena, as in the scenes where Katerina denounces her father, this is ultimately the kind of melodrama thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nothing but common sense written loud. In this study of a nation coming apart like a badly sewn suit, the gentle but slightly cowlike Elena becomes the center. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a kind of Mother Russia in the position of having to forgive both sides of the class war. â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Richard von Busack

GENTLEMEN PREFER BLONDES/ MONKEY BUSINESS (1953/1952) Two adventuresses head for Paris: dumb-like-a-fox Lorelei Lee (Marilyn Monroe) and shrewd but loyal pal, Dorothy Shaw (Jane Russell). The signature â&#x20AC;&#x153;Diamonds Are a Girlâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Best Friendâ&#x20AC;? numberâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a fantasia of shocking pink and goldâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;is one of those moments where Monroe really shows what she was about. BILLED WITH Monkey Business. Is it really the best use of Cary Grant to turn him into a big kid? In this formulaof-youth story, Grant, a research chemist, regresses thanks to the bartending ability of a chimp. Also stricken: perennial tough-cookie Ginger Rogers. Marilyn Monroe provides the eye candy. (Plays Jun 15-17 in Palo Alto at the Stanford Theatre.) (RvB)

FERRIS BUELLERâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S DAY OFF (1986) Because schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s out for the summer. Easygoing piece of nothing about playing hooky from high school, starring Matthew Broderick. (Plays Jun 14 at 8:45 in Redwood City at Old Courthouse Square.) (RvB)

Reviews BERNIE (PG-13; 98 min.) Brilliant Richard Linklater comedy regarding a plump and dainty mortician (Jack Black) of the piney-woods town of Carthage, Texas, and his relationship of sorts with the richest and most vicious widow in town, Marjorie Nugent (Shirley MacLaine). If it sounds like a put-down to describe acting as pulling faces, MacLaine pulls the best faces seen this year or in many years. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s based on a true-life murder case, originally reported in the Texas Monthly by the ďŹ lmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s co-scriptwriter Skip Hollandsworth. Linklater keeps in almost all the details of the bizarre story. But this ďŹ lm version goes more meta, as per Linklaterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s career skill in hunting down a vibe in Slackers, et al. Through interviews with the startlingly acute locals, Bernie celebrates the contradictory charm and awfulness of such a small town. (RvB)

THE BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL (PG-13, 122 min.) Based on Deborah Moggachâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s These Foolish Things, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a summit meeting of great British thespians: seven distinguished elders meet in a story held together by a

peeling retirement hotel in Jaipur, a Raj-era ruin. A widow gradually blossoms (Judi Dench); a married man shows modest enchantment (Bill Nighy); a wizened gent becomes a randy goat (Ronald Pickup); a wife (Penelope Wilton) responds with absolute disgust to the heat and noise and insects and the ďŹ lth. Some Desi-interest and perfunctory under60 love interest arises in the form of the Marigoldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hapless manager Sonny (Dev Patel). But watching something impressive, such as the scene of Tom Wilkinsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Graham sitting in a garden and unfolding on his personal life, I thought, â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is really ďŹ ne playwriting. Too bad itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a ďŹ lm.â&#x20AC;? And the arc careens too high for Maggie Smith, as a terriďŹ ed Cockney racist who suddenly proves her unlikely super-powers. (RvB)

DARK SHADOWS (PG-13; 113 min.) A pulseless reboot with the look of something the mortician pumped up and propped up. Seth Grahame-Smithâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wretched script claims that in 1972, the cofďŹ n of the early-American vampire Barnabas (Johnny Depp) is opened. He returns to his native estate Collinwood, tenanted by his descendants, a family of depressed misďŹ ts who need reparenting. A well-preserved Michelle Pfeiffer is Elizabeth; hard-drinking shrink Dr. Julia Hoffman (Helena BonhamCarter) tends to poor neglected young David (Gulliver McGrath). And thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a Lolita of a 15-year-old niece: Chloe Grace Moretz, too good for this. Burton keeps thwarting her sensible plan to steal this formless movie. Dark Shadows goes unusually dirty, with Depp and villain Eve Greenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recreation of the Jeff Goldblum/Emma Thompson roomwrecking sex scene in The Tall Guy. To enjoy it all, you have to presume 1972 as the most hilarious time ever. Danny Elfman unloads a Dumpster of oldies, primarily sugar-frosted cheese by The Carpenters. A little Alice Cooper helps, but the silent cameo by the real Barnabas, the late Jonathan Frid, says it all: sometimes the disdainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so thick you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ďŹ nd the words. (RvB)

THE DICTATOR (R; 120 min.) Admiral-General Aladeen of Wadiya is tossed out by an impersonator, and has to get the help of Zoey, a Brooklyn health-food store owner (the wonderful Anna Faris) to get his throne back. Working with his regular collaborator Larry Charles, Sacha Baron Cohen has, for the ďŹ rst time, a cast of actors instead of candid-camera victims. Much of the comedy is straight-out appalling,


61

MADAGASCAR 3: EUROPEâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S MOST WANTED (PG; 95 min.) In what the title tells me is only the third Madagascar ďŹ lm, Alex the Lion, Marty the Zebra, Melman the Giraffe, and Gloria the Hippopotamus (voiced by Ben Stiller, Chris Rock, David Schwimmer and Jada Pinkett Smith, respectively) set out to return to New York City after escaping Africa in the last installment. Their plan goes predictably awry, and the four animals ďŹ nd themselves stranded in Monte Carlo and in the crosshairs of a traveling circus.

MEN IN BLACK 3 (PG-13; 106 min.) Now with more xenophobia: Confusing and gross foreign grub is contrasted to the mental-healing power of a slice of American pie. A reference to Twin Peaks, or a symbol of a franchise turning aged and cranky? The hairy one-armed Boris the Animal (Flight of the Conchordsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Jermaine Clement) breaks out of a top-security jail and heads back in time to settle an old score with Agent K (Tommy Lee Jones). Meanwhile, the never more fey Agent J (Will Smith) time travels to 1969 to head off an alien invasion and meet up with the younger K. (Josh Brolin); there he encounters a bliss-ninny alien (Michael Stuhlbarg) who can see in the ďŹ fth dimension, like one of Vonnegutâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Trafalmadoreans. The anachronisms stand out and the ďŹ lm is seriously without women, even as eye-candy. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only so much male bonding a man can stand. And considering the threat of alien invasion, this installment is undervillained. It must be hard work writing professional wrestler/super villain threats. The Animal is left with lines like â&#x20AC;&#x153;Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s agree to disagree!â&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Arrggh!â&#x20AC;? (RvB)

MOONRISE KINGDOM (PG-13; 94 min.) In September 1965, gifted 12-year-olds Suzy (Kara Hayward) and Sam (Jared Gilman) head off to the wilderness of the ďŹ ctional New England island of New Penzance. They are sought by a sad constable (Bruce Willis) and an intrepid â&#x20AC;&#x153;Khaki Scoutsâ&#x20AC;? leader (Edward Norton). Gilman and Hayward demonstrate ďŹ&#x201A;awless precociousness, but the conceit is uneven. Sometimes the ďŹ lm is like Our Gang, as in a Boy Scout camp of kids acting like adults. Sometimes, it is as ooky as Bugsy Malone. Director Wes Andersonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s toy showboat is keeled with adult regret, particularly the drinkerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sorrows embodied by Bill Murray as Suzyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dad. The coolness and preciousness keep a glass barrier up, as thick as a store window. (RvB)

PEACE, LOVE AND MISUNDERSTANDING (R; 96 min.) This independent comedy-drama stars Catherine Keener as a conservative lawyer who, after her husband unexpectedly ďŹ les for divorce, takes her two teenage children to meet their estranged, hippie grandmother (Jane Fonda) in Woodstock.

PROMETHEUS (R; 124 min.) Logically confused (Christian allegory? Special-effects eyeful? Alien horror movie?). Blessed by Michael Fassbenderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

wily android â&#x20AC;&#x153;David,â&#x20AC;? Prometheus has an exciting premise: a mission to ďŹ nd the origins of the human race. Unfortunately, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s carried out by a cast of expendables and characters the 3-D canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make even 2-D (including Charlize Theron as the boss, Idris Elba as the deepspace captain, and Guy Pearce in the yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worst makeup). Some help by Noomi Rapace; her scene in the grip of an auto-doc seems to have some comedy relevance to the U.S. Health Care debate. A mark of elderly directors (Scott is 74) is a kind of fatalism, an essential disinterest in whether warriors make it out alive or not. And Prometheus, which begins and ends with self-destruction, has a greater grindhouse indifference to deathâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;as long as some of these crewmen get it, it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter in which order they die.

always low, sometimes hilarious. Particularly terriďŹ c is one scene of an unbilled Kathryn Hahn being aided in childbirth by the dictator. If The Dictator seems episodic, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just because of the way comedy ďŹ lms are made in this decade, with long improvs and subsequent cutting back: a process thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s to ďŹ lmmaking what slash and burn is to agriculture. As a result, the relationships start from scratch a lot; the characters seem to be bumping into one another on the New York streets. The plot owes more to Chaplinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s A King in New York than to his The Great Dictator, but the ďŹ lm does an homage to the other Dictator ďŹ lmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s speechifying ďŹ nale: Cohenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sarcasm against an audience bamboozled by the War on Terror.

SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN (PG-13; 127 min.) The second Snow White adaptation of 2012 (whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in the water down in Los Angeles?) comes from the producers of 2010â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s blockbuster Alice in Wonderland (never mind, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s box-ofďŹ ce receipts gushing out of those faucets). The ďŹ lm stars Kristen Stewart as the titular princess-to-be; Chris Hemsworth (of The Avengers fame) as the titular Huntsman; and Charlize Theron as the evil queen.

A Four Star Affair SAN JOSE pop-punkers A Four Star Affair will be shooting a scene for their next video at this show. Considering that their first one—which came out earlier this year, for “The Group W Bench”—was a hoot, it’s probably worth getting in on. Don’t know if they’ll have mimes, Robin Hood and zombies this time, but I have a feeling it will be just as ADD and funny as the other one. They humbly request that attendees for this all-ages show come dressed up “like this is a Hollywood premiere,” which gives you X Bar an idea of the red-carpet concept they’re going for. These four guys can barely keep a straight face sometimes, but Sat, Jun. 16 damn they’ve been working hard lately. They successfully raised enough money through Kickstarter to fund their Sat—8:30pm; $9 second EP, A Tragedy Like Me, which is their best batch yet of soaring, sweet-as-candy pop-punk. More fun than Taking Back Sunday, but in the same vein, they haven’t changed their basic mission since 2010’s debut EP If I Can’t Have You No One Can, but they’ve matured—even though that it seems wrong to use that word in the same sentence as “A Four Star Affair”—quite a bit. Pounders, Fabulous Under Fire and Highway Music open.—Steve Palopoli

River City Extension BEN HENDERSON, WHO’S been out of town since the beginning of May, will pay San Jose a visit by way of New Jersey when the band he’s been playing bass for, River City Extension, make a stop at the Blank Club this Sunday. Henderson will also be opening the show with a solo set. Blank Club River City Extension, who are well known in their Sun, Jun. 17 home state of Jersey, are trying to broaden their national fan base by touring in support of their new album, Don’t Sunday – 8p; $10 Let the Sun Go Down on Your Anger. It’s a well-crafted indie-folk record that stands out in the sea of indie-folk, by not just incorporating elements of country, bluegrass and pop, but by giving the album some heartfelt passion and bubbling joy, as opposed to the sleepy melancholy popular with a lot of the bigger indiefolk names like Bon Iver, Iron and Wine, and Fleet Foxes. That doesn’t meant that River City Extensions songs aren’t drenched in every bit as much pain as the aforementioned artists. It’s just delivered in a more emotionally complex package. The music at times builds from sad acoustic openers to full out hand-clapping and sing-along foot-stompers. Some songs follow the standard pop formula, but with more sophisticated instrumentation, like a cello, trumpet, mandolin and a banjo. “Welcome to Pittsburgh” is a delightful hit single waiting to happen. The band has eight members, which in the wrong hands, could be musical overkill. But Don’t Let the Sun Go Down on Your Anger shows restraint and dynamics. They have grown quite a bit since their debut album by emphasizing both the Americana and pop elements. According to the band’s press release, the two biggest influences on the album were Townes Van Zandt and Feist. It shows. The range, both lyrically and musically is impressive, but what the album most has going for it is that it’s fun, full of joy and has plenty of workingclass Jersey soul.—Aaron Carnes

BARFLY

Beyond Billiards CONTRARY to what its name suggests, South First Billiards is not just about billiards. The club is actually a diverse mix of seemingly unrelated aspects: billiards, ping-pong, live music, art gallery, bar and restaurant (with a surprisingly inclusive menu of everything from appetizers to full-blown meals). It’s as if the owners took aspects from several different Jflk_=`ijk successful clubs and combined them into one venue. On a recent Saturday night, even though the tables are maxed out with players and Metallica blares over the jukebox at a deafening volume, there is a relaxed vibe in the air. At any other club, this many people would create a chaotic setting. With Billiards’ spacious interior and a crowd glued to their games, the atmosphere is chill.

9`cc`Xi[j

420 S. First Street, San Jose

While the band sound checks, I wander around the floor, soaking in the scene. South First Billiards has a trendy sort of bohemian feel to it; with its high trussedceiling, painted walls and displayed canvases it seems like a warehouse loft or studio. One wall is dedicated to paintings from independent artists. Pool tables are arranged in rows that stretch to the back of the building. With table rates running from $10 to $12 per hour, playing is definitely not for those with chronically empty wallets, but for those who love the game. Evidently, the players tonight love the game: dress shirts and cocktail dresses hunch over their tables, so absorbed they don’t even notice when the band starts up. The Band-Droidz, a trio out of Harlem, rocks out on the small stage. A small crowd forms. One patron raises his glass in a drunken salute to the frontman, who nods back, fingers flying across his guitar strings. I begin nodding to the beat, awash in the mellow riffs and solos. The disco ball spins and throws pinpricks of red and green light over the audience, dots whirling across the floor and walls before simultaneously pausing then exploding outward again.—The Barfly
