Stanky Leg With your bare hands, you started feeling around my foot before transitioning me into the boot. The level of ambivalence about my hygiene was a bit perplexing. I’m not a filthy person, by any means. But jeez, doc, my cast made it impossible to wash that part of my body for a month! I think a pair of latex gloves would be standard protocol. Who knows what kind of foot mold or flaky dead skin you were bound to touch? I wouldn’t have let a loved one within an inch of my puny, atrophied leg until it was thoroughly sanitized. “How does this feel?” you asked, after every squeeze of my foot. “Unsanitary,” I replied. “You’re grossing me out.”

Whip It Good San Jose’s decision to create stronger tenant protections—not in the manner preferred by Mayor SAM LICCARDO—has led to questions about whether the city’s top elected official is losing control of the council. Liccardo already enraged District 10 Councilman JOHNNY KHAMIS by picking MAGDALENA CARRASCO as his vice mayor, and the renters vote showed that the mayor’s veep isn’t afraid to vote her conscience. For this reason, Liccardo could be eyeballing two important 2018 races. In District 9, Councilman DON ROCHA terms out after years of supporting working-class policies like minimum wage hikes and subsidized housing. KALEN GALLAGHER, a 34-year-old former charter school teacher, startup They founder and Campbell Did Union High School District What? trustee, was the first to throw his name in the SEND TIPS TO ring, and his allegiances FLY@ METRONEWS. appear to be fluid. Other COM names being floated include ex-hospital tech SABUHI SIDDIQUE, San Jose Unified board president PAM FOLEY, AARP deputy state director FRED BUZO, cybersecurity pro DORON ARONSON and state Assembly aide SHAY FRANCO-CLAUSEN. In District 7, first-term Councilman TAM NGUYEN has generally supported labor but he’s also alienated parts of the Vietnamese community by suing a pair of bloggers who branded him a “communist.” Nguyen’s recent votes to strengthen renter protections also prompted attacks. It’s unclear how that will affect Nguyen’s shot at reelection, but a few folks are already lining up. One opponent is CHRIS LE, an Oakland tax auditor who accused Nguyen of illegally “wiretapping” his mobile phone by having someone zoom a camera in on his text messages in a public meeting. Another possibility is THANH TRAN, a green yet up-and-coming member of the Franklin-McKinley school board. It seems unlikely Liccardo will receive a credible challenge in the mayor’s race, but he may need big victories in 2018 to reclaim his majority.

Chart Toppers SCHOOLED Parent Vera Sloan supports high-performing charter schools but wants San Jose Unified’s elected officials to be selective when it comes to approving new charter petitions.

Pending charter schools in San Jose accuse district of teacher poaching BY JENNIFER WADSWORTH

S

AN JOSE’S LARGEST public school district is accused of sabotaging applications to open new charter academies. Teachers who expressed an interest in working at two proposed charters say San Jose Unified School District tried to poach them and invalidate their signatures of support. “This is the first time we’ve seen actions like this taken by a district anywhere in the state,” says Brittany Parmerly, spokeswoman for the California Charter Schools Association (CCSA). “We believe they’re trying to stall the start of the clock.”

To qualify a petition for a new charter school, its founders must prove “meaningful interest” by collecting signatures from half the students that plan to enroll, or half the teachers they plan to hire. Alexandria LeeNatali— aspiring principal for one of the new schools, Perseverance Prep—opted to gather the names of teachers. But when she handed them over to San Jose Unified this past winter to verify interest, she says, officials tried to recruit the instructors for district schools. “To be frank, I was shocked,” LeeNatali says. In voicemail recordings she shared with Metro, the district’s Deputy Superintendent Stephen McMahon and San Jose Teachers Union President Jennifer Thomas can be heard delivering what sound like pitches on behalf of the school district rather than verifying interest in working with the charters, Perseverance Prep and Promise

Academy, which were never mentioned. “We’re in the middle of our recruitment season,” McMahon says in one message. “I saw your resume and thought I would give you a ring to talk about what it’s like to work in San Jose Unified.” Molly Reyes, a parent who wants to enroll her child at Promise, says she noticed the same problem when she took up the district’s offer to observe the calls in person. “They were not entering information onto a computer,” Reyes says. “They did not have a process of who they were calling and who they were waiting to call back. It did not seem like they had an organized system to make calls and nothing was being entered on a computer.” Tempers flared at a May 4 SJUSD board meeting. The district wanted to postpone the hearing until the petitioners submitted enough signatures to meet the state threshold. Charter proponents accused the district of stacking the deck against them.

investments subsidized by tax breaks. Lafer add that charters routinely fall short of their educational mandate. In California, 161 charters scored in the bottom 10th percentile of similar schools but continue to collect $44 million in lease payments, $57 million in general obligation bonds, $40 million in taxcredit investments and $85 million in conduit bond financing. Preston Green III, a professor of educational leadership and law at the University of Connecticut, likens the charter industry to Enron and the subprime mortgage market. “At first, I thought charters gave us an opportunity for innovation to level the playing field for students of color,” says Green, who has been studying and writing about charter schools for two decades. “But over time, I became very concerned that people were exploiting privatization to benefit themselves.” The problem lies in the way states, including California, structure charter schools, which involves a byzantine network of private entities funded by public dollars. At best, charter school operators volunteer their financials and invite the public to board meetings. At their worst, the people running them get busted for embezzlement, fraud and self-dealing. Magnolia Schools—a charter management organization that runs 11 campuses, including one in San Jose—made headlines in recent years for its dubious hiring practices. According to audits, the charter chain recruited teachers from Turkey and required them to shell out 40 percent of their salary to the national organization or risk losing their visas. In January, another charter network, called Celerity Educational Group, came under federal investigation after reports surfaced of the CEO using the enterprise as a personal piggy bank. “People are right to be skeptical,” Green says. Vera Sloan, a parent in San Jose with two young daughters, says she supports high-performing charters but hopes the district’s elected officials will exercise restraint and approve only charter petitions that add value. “Charters have the flexibility to innovate in a way that most public schools cannot,” says Sloan, a community organizer and co-founder of local activist group Stand San Jose. “But we have to set a high standard.” McMahon agrees. If the SJUSD board approves a poorly managed charter school, taxpayers, parents and children are on the hook. Perseverance Prep comes up for a vote Thursday, while Promise’s petition is slated for June.

Schools, picked up his cellphone and fired off a series of terse text messages to district trustee Susan Ellenberg about a motion to put off the Promise Academy hearing to June. “You leave people no option but to speak out when you don’t allow people to speak on this agenda item before you pull it,” Hammer wrote, according to records obtained by Metro through a public records request. “That makes people feel silenced. Why the delay?” Ellenberg texted back from the dais: “Because we don’t have 50% interest— we evidently aren’t allowed to accept that without that number of signs.” “SJUSD has always granted a hearing without verifying sigs, like every district in the state,” Hammer replied. “McMahon is making up new interpretation. … And you aren’t letting ppl speak at mic. That seems to be significant violation of [Brown] act.” Ellenberg wrote : “This is very distracting and inappropriate. Everyone gets to speak during public comment.” McMahon, the district’s deputy superintendent, defended the verification checks, adding that the process honors the intent of the Charter Schools Act of 1992. Although other districts may go about it in other ways, he says, the state Education Code supports the district’s requirement. “Opening a school is difficult,” McMahon says. “We are holding petitioners accountable to the process of the law. It’s not that the process is difficult, it’s what is necessary to open a school the right way.” Policymakers who backed the Charter Schools Act decades ago envisioned the new model complementing public schools by offering classroom alternatives. Charters receive public funds yet run like private businesses. Similar to nonprofits, they have nonelected governing boards and the freedom to experiment with curriculum. But critics say lax regulations and profit motive have fueled an industry that strays from the original vision. The systemic tendency to give charter petitioners the benefit of the doubt has led to schools being opened in neighborhoods with no need for more classrooms, says University of Oregon researcher Gordon Lafer.. He found that 450 charters have opened in California school districts that already had enough space, an overproduction that cost taxpayers $111 million in rent, lease and mortgage payments, $135 million in bond debt and $425 million in private

12 SUMMER GUIDE

c on c e rt s

Back to Monterey MISTY MORNING Father John Misty will help infuse this year’s 50-year anniversary of the Monterey International Pop Festival with his sardonic brand of 21st century folk-rock.

F

IFTY YEARS AGO this June, Jimi Hendrix made his major American debut at the Monterey International Pop Music Festival—catalyzing the counterculture with a positively electric performance. The then-23-year-old guitarist played with his teeth, coaxed torrents of terrific feedback from his amplifier and then set his Fender ablaze in one of the most iconic moments in rock & roll history.

It was the summer of 1967. The hippie movement was at its zenith and optimism was high that a new age was upon us—an era of world peace, LSD-enlightenment and machines of loving grace. Half a century on, it can feel like the world is burning hotter than Jimi’s infamous Stratocaster. Thankfully we’ve got Father John Misty. Fresh on the heels of his third, and most ambitious, full-length, Pure Comedy, Father John—a.k.a. Josh Tillman—joins Regina Spektor, Dr. Dog, Phil Lesh, Kurt Vile and many others at

the 50th anniversary celebration of the first Monterey Pop, June 16-18. Now, more than ever, we look to Tillman to help make sense of the senselessness. Posing as a cynic, this sardonic shaman is only a part-time pessimist. And while Pure Comedy seeks to skewer every partisan viewpoint, Tillman doesn’t shy away from taking a definitive stand. His is a 21st century update on “All You Need is Love”—The Beatles’ own Summer of Love pronouncement. We’re all “just random matter suspended in the dark,” Tillman

sings at the close of Pure Comedy’s title track. “I hate to say it, but each other’s all we got.” —Nick Veronin

Dead & Company Shoreline Amphitheatre, Mountain View | Jun 3-4 It’s 2017, and we can pretty much all agree that the rules have gone out the window. A “boss” from a reality TV show is president, careers have been replaced by driving people around in their Nissan, and the Grateful Dead are back and playing with John Mayer. But unlike the 45th president and the gig economy, Dead & Co. has been consistently entertaining crowds and receiving unanimously positive reviews. For those on the Dead bus, this is a rare chance to see Bob Weir, Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzmann jam like it’s 1967.

Roger Waters SAP Center, San Jose | Jun 7 How many thousands of bedrooms have been covered in images from Dark Side of the Moon, The Wall and Wish You Were Here? If Pink Floyd didn’t exist, neither would the American dorm room as we know it. This June, Floyd bassist/ and singer Roger Waters comes to the SAP center in support of Is This the Life We Really Want?, his first album in 25 years. The record has been described as an “unflinching commentary on the modern times,” which means the singer of The Wall will be addressing a president whose racist campaign revolved around building a new one. Get ready.

SUMMER GUIDE

Shoreline Amphitheatre, Mountain View | Jun 10 This is one of the most stacked lineups the South Bay is likely to see for some time. Future, Migos, Young Thug and A$AP Ferg are all headliners in their own right, but together there’s a kind of group energy. Both Future and Migos were featured on Ferg tracks. Both Ferg and Migos were featured together on a Marty Baller track. Ferg directed the video for Future’s “Thought It Was a Drought.” And here’s the kicker: the tour comes as anticipation is growing for Young Thug’s E.B.B.T.G., produced by none other than Future collaborator Drizzy.

King Crimson Mountain Winery, Saratoga | Jun 15 Fans of classic and progressive rock have a lot to look forward to this June. In addition to Pink Floyd frontman Roger Waters and the current incarnation of the Grateful Dead (Dead & Co.), the legendary King Crimson drop by the South Bay for a night of virtuosic prog. While many of their contemporaries found influence in American blues music, Crimson sought out more esoteric and academic sounds, cribbing notes from jazz and classical to form their snakey, acid-fried art rock. Step into the court of the Crimson King.

Tool SAP Center, San Jose | Jun 21 The last time Tool released a record was in 2006. Though they have explicitly stated they won’t be putting out any new music this year, there’s still been a good amount of activity from the legendary band. Even if there’s no new release immediately forthcoming, they’ll likely play new songs in San Jose, as the band has been including some new material in recent sets. And with their, uh, “highly” trippy live shows, the SAP Center is set to look like one massive third eye.

The Roots Mountain Winery, Saratoga | Jul 13 Long before becoming the late night band, the Roots had been carving out a singular space in the late ’90s & early 2000s as the hip hop band. Though it’s easy to think of them in shorthand as the hip hop group with live instruments, their music has always gone far beyond that. The Roots’ music is a straight up celebration of the entire African-American tradition, incorporating elements from every major American genre into their sound. Any chance to see Black Thought, Questlove (photo by

thetortmaster via Flickr) and the group live is one that shouldn’t be missed.

Bruno Mars SAP Center, San Jose | Jul 20

and early ’90s they pretty much simultaneously ruled college and major rock radio, all without even using electric instruments and playing by nobody’s rules but their own. Their songs have an energy that is all their own. Ask 15 people what their favorite Femmes song is and you’ll probably get 15 different answers. Paired with Echo & the Bunnymen, this makes for one of the sharpest shows at the Mountain Winery this summer.

Bruno Mars comes to San Jose for the second time this July, playing two nights at the SAP Center at the beginning of his North American tour. Dude is already known for his exciting live shows, but this time he’s been doing choreography with the Jabbawockeez. City National Civic, San This is the official Jose | Aug 16 tour for 24k Gold, an album Mars described We already know what as being about a band the color of your energy is “fucking dipped in Versace,” Questlove (amber), but what about the which, you know, sounds meaning of the word “Brodels”? It’s cool and all, but the performance simple, really: “The brodels is the nazz, itself is likely to be great. and the nazz knows where it’s at. The brodels is the nazz who knows a cat who can feed a cat. The goal is to be a poet or a carpenter—to be the one who loves to be one who works. The nazz not something that can be given, the brodel is inside you. It comes from within.” See, it’s easy! Mountain Winery, Saratoga | Jul 30

311

Violent Femmes & Echo and The Bunnymen

The Violent Femmes are often cited as a gateway drug for indie rock. Throughout the late ’80s

Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry Catalyst Atrium, Santa Cruz | Jun 19 Perry’s music has had some of the most storied and wide-ranging influence of the 20th century. The reggae producer, who started out with the Upsetters, created one of the defining sounds of Jamaican music with his dub remixes and inspired everyone from Bob Marley to Kanye, The Clash to the Beastie Boys. This is a rare opportunity to see the master in a small club setting, since Raekwon is booked to play the main room of the Catalyst the same night. It wouldn’t be surprising to see Raekwon in the back of the room himself, trying to catch some of the legend’s set. —Mike Huguenor

Music in the Park June 23, July 20, $10 Plaza de Cesar Chavez Park

Mo’ Better Tunes Live 105’s BFD June 10, $37.50 Shoreline Amphitheatre Live 105’s BFD has been championing alternative acts to the forefront since the mid-’90s. This year’s lineup includes headliners Phoenix, Franz Ferdinand and Cold War Kids. Phoenix in particular promises to be a worthwhile set, as BFD is slated for the day after the band releases their new album, Ti Amo. Taking Back Sunday will also be playing at the fest for any ’90s

babies looking for some nostalgia. In recent years, BFD has expanded into the EDM genre as well. The fest’s Subsonic Tent will be host to big names, including San Jose’s own Getter, along with Qrion and Whethan as well.

ID10T Music Festival + Comic Conival June 24-25, $55 Shoreline Amphitheatre Music lovers on the hunt for something a little different:

Kendrick Lamar SAP Center, San Jose | Aug 12

As if following up on good kid m.A.A.d city weren’t a feat in and of itself, Kendrick Lamar has done it yet again. His third full-length record—DAMN.—does not disappoint. Dialing back the free-jazz explosions of To Pimp a Butterfly in favor of classic soul riffage, K. Dot’s latest is a soul-searching masterpiece. He brings his DAMN. Tour to town in August with fellow Compton emcee Y.G. —Nick Veronin

Music in the Park’s a concert series has been a staple of the summer season in downtown San Jose since 1989. The two shows revealed so far this year are New Zealand reggae band Katchafire and jam band Blues Traveler, known for their Top 40 hits “Run-Around” and “Hook.”

Fountain Blues Festival June 24, $20 Plaza de Cesar Chavez Park The 36th annual Fountain Blues Festival continues its mission to spread appreciation for the blues. The festival features a combination of new and established artists. Musicians in attendance include Elvin Bishop, Maxx Cabello Jr. and Fillmore Slim. The collection of artists featured on the bill represent both members of the old guard and newer artists keeping the blues alive. Many of the performers move between genres. The festival will also feature three-time Grammy nominee Bettye LaVette (pictured), who is best known for her R&B interpretations of rock and blues tracks.

look to the inaugural ID10T Music + Comic Conival. The event will feature a lineup that accommodates fans of music, comedy and comic books. Over the course of the two-day fest, the main stage will host the likes of Weezer, Car Seat Headrest and Animal Collective— currently touring in support of two EPs released this year—as well as Crystal Castles, who will be performing with new lead singer Edith Francis. Notable additions to the comedy stage include Demetri Martin, SNL’s Michael Che and comedy-folk band Garfunkel and Oates. However, what really sets ID10T apart from festivals of its ilk is the inclusion of notable comic book creatives. Artists and writers for titles like Batman, Green Arrow, Swamp Thing and Deadpool will be participating in panels and discussing their craft with fans all weekend.

FUNKDAFIED George Clinton takes the main stage at SJ Summer Jazz Fest.

SJ Jazz Summer Fest

F

UNK LEGEND George Clinton comes to San Jose as a part of the San Jose Jazz Summer Fest’s 28th installment. Clinton will be joined by his band Funkadelic/ Parliament during their set on the main stage. With his huge backlog across the two bands, it’s hard to say which songs they’ll opt to play. Given the legendary status of both bands and Clinton himself, though, whatever they play is bound to be a funky highlight of the festival. Across 10 stages, the three-day festival Aug. 11-13 boasts more than 100 performances in a range of genres. Past lineups have included Bobby Caldwell, Bootsy Collins and rising saxophonist and bandleader Kamasi Washington. Set to play on the Cafe Stritch stage is R&B and synth-pop six-piece The Seshen. The Bay Area group builds songs around their own combination of live percussion, electronic instrumentation and the dextrous delivery of lead singer Lalin

St. Juste. The band is sure to play songs off of their sophomore fulllength album, “Flames and Figures,” from 2016. The lineup will also bring classic San Francisco R&B group The Whispers to the festival’s main stage. The group, which has no fewer than 24 albums under its belt, will no doubt play a slew of their hits from the ’70’s and ’80’s. Representing much more than just world music is three-time Grammy Award-winning vocalist Angelique Kidjo. For this special performance, Kidjo will be paying tribute to Latin music queen Celia Cruz. See sanjosejazz.org for more information. —Yousif Kassab

Bus Barn Theater, Los Altos | May 25Jun 24 A musical about two guys writing a musical about two guys writing a musical, this unique and comical feat of metatheatrics came to be when writer Hunter Bell and lyricist/ composer Jeff Bowen realized that their conversations about what to write about for the New York Musical Theatre Festival were more interesting than what they were actually writing. It premiered off-Broadway in 2004 and went on to win the Tony Award for best book of a musical.

OPERA

Così fan tutte California Theatre, San Jose | Sep 9-24 A tragedy posing as a comedy, this Mozart opera is the first production of Opera San Jose’s 2017-18 season. It deals with themes of love, deception and heartbreak as two seductive clowns put their fiancées’ fidelity to the ultimate test.

Salome MUSICAL MIGRANTS An illustration from the 1931 graphic novel ‘Manga Yonin Shosei.’ TheatreWorks is producing ‘The Four Immigrants,’ a musical version of the manga.

Lucie Stern Theatre, Palo Alto | May 26-Jun 4

Summer Heartstrings

If you love someone who doesn’t love you back, get your creepy king to decapitate their head so you can kiss it. Such is the story of Salome, a one-act opera that offers a disturbing look at desire, death and human depravity. Composed of a wide range of keys, symbolic leitmotifs, and tonal ambiguity, Salome’s harmony is just as unusual as its titular character.

Performing arts keep it light this summer, while the museums take a deeper dive THEATER

Lizzie City Lights Theater, San Jose | Jul 13Aug 20 In 1892, a man and his wife were brutally axed to death in their home in Fall River, Massachusetts. Accused of the crime is the man’s daughter, Lizzie Borden. The infamous American trial is now retold in a riotous musical led by four women fronting a six-piece rock band as the sounds of revenge, anger and ultimate catharsis shake the stage.

The Toxic Avenger San Jose Stage Company | Jun 7-Jul 17 While attempting to clean up the putridly polluted Tromaville, New Jersey, our hero, Melvin Ferd, falls into a vat of radioactive sludge. He emerges as The Toxic Avenger—a superhuman mutant hellbent on cleaning up his home state. Based on the campy 1984 movie of the same name, this musical was written by the same team that gave us the Tony Award-winning Memphis.

Hershey Felder, Beethoven Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts | June 7-July 9 After bringing Irving Berlin to life, Hershey Felder is setting his sites on Beethoven. The production features Felder playing some of Ludwig van’s greatest hits, including “Moonlight Sonata” and “Emperor Concerto.”

CLASSICAL

The Four Immigrants

Misa Tango

Lucie Stern Theatre, Palo Alto | Jul 12-Aug 6

California Theatre, San Jose | Jun 3-4

At the turn of the 20th century, four Japanese immigrants arrive in San Francisco. Facing possibility and prejudice—as well as an inspiring world’s fair and terrifying temblor— The Four Immigrants: An American Musical Manga is based on the 1931 graphic novel Manga Yonin Shosei.

In Symphony Silicon Valley’s final performance of its 2016-17 season, director Carlos View takes on tango. Featuring bandoneon soloist Juan Pablo Jofre and the Symphony Silicon Valley Chorale, SSV will play the music of Astor Piazzolla, Horacio Salgan and Luis Bacalov.

CANTOR ARTS

Environmental Exposure: Photography and Ecology after 1970 May 24–Sept 18 As the American ecological movement began to take shape — spurred on by the creation of the Environmental Protection Agency in 1970 — so too did the consciousness of American photographers. Taken in the 1970s and early ’80s, these works transform familiar images of landscapes into commentaries on pollution, construction and waste.

MACLA ARTE

Shelter/Refugio June 2 – Aug 13 A timely exhibit, Shelter/Refugio (Refuge) examines the meaning of what it means to have a safe and secure home. Artists like Elena Guzman, Monica Martinez and Sergio de la Torre look at what that means for longtime residents facing unaffordable housing, as well as immigrants and refugees living in sanctuary cities.

NUMU

Abstracts From Life: Bay Area Figurative Past and Present Thru Sept 10 Paintings that take their point of departure from the Bay Area figurative movement. Without denying the influence of abstract expressionism in the 20th century, these artists are also reacting against it by including the human form in their work. But faces are almost entirely absent on these canvases. The individual is abstracted but that only increases the sense of nostalgia for a forgotten friend or absent loved one.

SAN JOSE INSTITUTE OF CONTEMPORARY ART

Detritus June 25 – Sept 10 An exhibition that’s not about what’s new. Over 100 artists will contribute what’s left over, the bits and pieces that didn’t make it on the canvas. Kevin B. Chen, Lisa Ellsworth, and Lordy Rodriguez are the guest curators.


June 25 – Sept 10 These paintings of boats and the sea are atypical of work in the nautical genre. There isn’t a hint of cloying, pastel sweetness or calm harbors. The hulls are skeletal, in various stages of decomposition. The world depicted here cannot recover from the aftermath of a terrible storm.

SAN JOSE MUSEUM OF ART

Fragile Waters: Photographs by Ansel Adams, Ernest H. Brooks II and Dorothy Kerper Monnelly Thru Aug 6 The California drought has ended. For now. To remind us of our endangered rivers, lakes and seas, the entire main floor is filled with watery images. Over one hundred blackand-white photographs are arranged for our ecological engagement and aesthetic enjoyment. The famous photographers captured an era of innocent abundance among our national parks and pristine shorelines.

The Darkened Mirror: Global Perspectives on Water

Go ahead–push ’em in.

Thru Aug 27 In a half-dozen films, several international artists take stock of our planet’s water supply. What they’ve found doesn’t look good. Humans have polluted the water supply, taken it for granted and ignored the warnings about climate change. The projected images carry weight as they fight against our thoughtless tendency to waste a precious resource.

Your Mind, This Moment: Art and the Practice of Attention Thru Aug 27 Sit down, relax, put your feet up. Listen to a guided meditation as you contemplate a few paintings on the wall. This exhibit is less about art and more about your ability to quiet the mind. Instead of breezing through the gallery, find a work that you feel drawn to and settle in for a contemplative moment of personal, and artistic, discovery.

DARK ARCHITECTURE Louise Nevelson’s 1957 work ‘Sky Cathedral #2’ will be on display at the San Jose Museum of Art.

Beta Space: Victor Cartagena Thru Sept 4 The artist Victor Cartagena cast a mold of a farm worker’s face and made it out of sugar beets. A row of his head hangs along a long white wall and they’re starting to melt. On the opposing wall, they stare out at an enormous mural that merges bureaucrats with donkeys. It’s a vision of hell that applies to every immigrant’s life as they negotiate the territories of estrangement and assimilation.

ArtsAbled: Seeing the Unseen Thru Aug 13 ArtsAbled is a seasonal series that features artists living with

disabilities who, despite certain physical limitations, pursue their chosen artistic field. The first exhibition, Seeing the Unseen, presents work by blind artists and their conception of the world.

SEEING THINGS GALLERY

Hi-Dutch, Yusuke Hani & Katsuo Design Opens June 9 A trio of up-and-coming artists in a group show. Hi-Dutch’s paintings combine his knowledge of surf board repair with carpentry, yarn and resin. Both born in Japan, Hani and Katsuo Design are illustrators cum fine artists. From T-shirt slogans to concert posters, their aesthetic reads DIY 1970s all the way. –Jeffrey Edalatpour

mov i es

LOVE OF FAMILY Steven Soderbergh’s LOGAN LUCKY (Aug 18) teams Adam Driver and Channing Tatum as brothers, no-hopers who decide to rob the Charlotte 500 race. Amy Poehler and Will Ferrell star in THE HOUSE (Jun 30) as parents who spend their children’s college fund, and scheme to replace the money by running an illegal gambling den out of their basement. I, DANIEL BLAKE (June 2) is Ken Loach’s scathing drama about the “reform” of the British welfare system, leaving a disabled carpenter caught between work he can no longer do and sustenance; meanwhile he falls in love with a single mother with two children.

LOVE OF THE PLANET AN INCONVENIENT SEQUEL: TRUTH TO POWER (Jul 28) updates Al Gore’s Oscarwinning documentary An Inconvenient Truth. Stay on Earth next time, say colonists who voyage to the world of the chest-bursting, face-humping Xenomorphs in ALIEN: COVENANT (May 19).

JUST PLAIN LOVE

CUPCAKING Love takes a sick turn in the new film ‘The Big Sick.’

Love, Love, Love A slew of summer movies deal with the L-word in its many forms

W

HAT, INDEED, IS so funny about peace, love and understanding? One waits for recollections of that immemorial year 1967: Kathryn Bigelow (Zero Dark Thirty) recreating the riots in Detroit (Aug. 7). The Danish movie The Commune (June) follows a group in the 1970s trying to live out hippie idealism. A hit at this year’s San Francisco Film Festival was Long Strange Trip, a four-hour analysis of the rise and fall of the Grateful Dead (LA/NY end of May, June 2 for Amazon Prime). The director Amir Bar-Lev previously did The Tillman Story, about the NFL player turned soldier Pat Tillman of Almaden Valley. And love abounds at the theater:

LOVE OF COUNTRY MEAGAN LEAVEY (June 9) casts Rooney Mara as a solitary female Marine who partners up with a traumatized German shepherd dog in Iraq. DUNKIRK (July 21) concerns the original Brexit: in May 1940, several hundred thousand British soldiers were cornered against the English Channel by Nazi forces. A volunteer fleet of civilian boats defied the bullets and bombs and came to the rescue. Tom Hardy, Mark Rylance and Kenneth Branagh are among the men living out the legend. Christopher Nolan directs. SNATCHED (May 12) unites Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn as hapless Americans who go on a Colombia holiday and end up endungeoned. KING ARTHUR: LEGEND OF THE SWORD features Charlie Hunnam as King Arthur, defending his nation against invaders while trying to chase

THE BIG SICK (June 30, SF; later elsewhere) has very high hopes for it. Kumail Nanjiani of TV’s Silicon Valley plays himself in a true-life, cross-cultural romance with his producer friend Emily V. Gordon (Zoe Kazan). That’s when a baffling disease intervenes. Amazon snagged it after a multimillion dollar Sundance bidding war. EVERYTHING, EVERYTHING (May 19) looks weirdly good for a spin on the Boy in the Plastic Bubble plot. It’s the courtship of immunesystem impaired Maddy (Amandla Stenberg) and the new boy next door (Nick Robinson). From the trailers, director Stella Meghie seems to keep it cool and underplayed.

What makes a man turn getaway driver? Love, and gangsters threatening his waitress girlfriend, in BABY DRIVER (Jun 28). The previews are unlovable, despite Edgar Wright’s track record on the Frost ’n’ Pegg “Pub Trilogy.” There are expectations that it will be the new Fast and the Furious, and if you were in high school, you’d know who the lead Ansel Elgort was, wouldn’t you? (Hint: Stars, The Fault in Our). TULIP FEVER concerns the wild

BROWATCH Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron share the spotlight and protein shakes in ‘Baywatch.’ speculation on the Dutch flowers in 1634, with Christoph Waltz looking, if anything, even more sinister than usual in a black doublet and a lace ruff. He’s the old creep married to the young beauty (Alicia Vikander) loved by the Dutch master commissioned to do her portrait. THE WEDDING PLAN (May 19) is Israeli Orthodox Jewish filmmaker Rama Burshtein’s story of a bride searching for a groom after her fiancé runs away—and it looks better than it sounds.

LOVE OF FAIR AND GALLANT WOMEN WONDER WOMAN (June 2). Scintillating sabra Gal Gadot as our Amazon heroine, leaving Paradise to fight the Kaiser’s main man (Danny Huston). And, the wonder woman of poetry Emily Dickinson (Cynthia Nixon) is the heroine of Terence Davies’ A QUIET PASSION (May 26).

Studio stockholders rejoice: here are the remakes and reboots. Perhaps the choicest will be the redo of the Don Siegel/Clint Eastwood movie THE BEGUILED (June 30). In the Civil War, a wounded soldier is taken in by some unaccompanied ladies who turn out to be belles dames sans merci. Sofia Coppola directs. BAYWATCH (May 25) has the body sculpted TV team back in action, with The Rock learning to share the spotlight with Zac Efron. Tom Cruise meets THE MUMMY (June 9) in modern day London. And here comes another installment of Pixar’s least interesting franchise, CARS 3 (June 6). PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MEN TELL NO TALES (June 23) has the usual gang of buccaneers encountering another cursed pirate (Javier Bardem); TRANSFORMERS: THE LAST KNIGHT (Jun 23), SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING (July 7) with the likable new Spidey (Tom Holland) matching wits against Michael Keaton as The Vulture: and to think of all the grousing about superheroes Keaton did in Birdman.

More Gru for you: DESPICABLE ME 3 (June 30). Gorillas that will killya: WAR FOR THE PLANET OF THE APES (July 14). What is more scary, clowns or monkeys? Ask those who see both War… and the remake of IT (Sep 8) with Pennywise (Bill Skarsgård) giving an unfortunate example of a joker whose sense of humor is in the gutter. —Richard von Busack

MY COUSIN RACHEL (July 14) is a most intriguing new version of Daphne (Rebecca) Du Maurier’s romance about a tempting single Victorian lady (Rachel Weisz) who may be a poisoner. PARIS CAN WAIT (May 26) is Eleanor Coppola’s European comedy/romance with Diane Lane and Alec Baldwin. THE LOVERS (May 5, LA/NY) is Azazel Jacobs’ comedy of an open marriage undergoing a surprise closure. In it is Debra Winger, one of the most important actresses of the 1980s. The long-memoried will recall Winger’s early years as Wonder Girl, Wonder Woman’s sidekick, which leads to a subcategory:

BOSS HOGS Bacon festivals have a way of inspiring irrational happiness.

Feast Until the Fall

S

UMMER MAY BE made for the outdoors—but then what? The sun shines down, the throat acquires premium parch and the stomach growls, as if to say: feed me, Seymour. Here’s a list of some of the best food and drink festivals to grab a bite and a beer, listen to live music while taking a stroll and a sip, or simply sit in the mud and devour food truck goodies while ascending to hog heaven.

Gilroy Art & Wine Stroll Stroll through beautiful downtown Gilroy while sipping on wine from more than 20 local wineries while perusing art from featured local artists of the Gilroy Center for the Arts. There will be live music, as well as some presentation booths. Special gifts will be handed out to designated drivers at most pour stations. Of course, all the local restaurants will be open should all

that walking and sipping work up an appetite. Early bird tickets $35, designated drivers free. May 20, 2pm-6pm; 7780 Monterey St, Gilroy; gilroywelcomecenter.org

SJ Earthquakes Beer Fest This inaugural event, hosted by Lagunitas, will take place before the May 27 game against the rival LA Galaxy. The fest will feature 14 breweries, 11 of which are local. For

$45 ($15 upgrade for season ticket holders) guests get a ticket to the game, four 4-ounce tastings and a commemorative tasting glass. Additional tastings can be purchased for $5 each. A portion of the proceeds go toward NorCal Special Olympics. The event starts two hours before gametime at 4:30 p.m., so there’s time to get properly lubricated and help our Quakes beat LA! May 27, 4:30pm; Avaya Stadium; sjearthquakes.com

Morgan Hill Mushroom Mardi Gras Taking place over Memorial Day weekend for the 38th consecutive year is the family-friendly arts and crafts festival celebrating the fungus among us. Educational booths and cooking demonstrations will teach you all you need to know about mushrooms. Despite the mycological theme, there will be plenty to do, including premium

wine tastings, live music, street performers and a Munchkinland for the kiddies. As with all good festivals, there’s tons of food, as well as wine booths and a beer garden. May 27, 10am-7pm; May 28, 10-am-6pm; Downtown Morgan Hill; mhmmg.org

Taco Festival of Innovation and Baconland Tacos and bacon are getting hitched in a Memorial Day weekend mashup brought together by the fine folks of Moveable Feast. First, The Taco Festival of Innovation will take center stage on Saturday, May 27, when 25-plus taco trucks from across the Bay Area will sling plates that cost no more than $6. General admission is $9.99, and an unlimited craft beer pass runs $34.99 pre-sale. Hog heaven will commence the following day, as Baconland takes over History Park on

GRILLMAN Like the San Jose Greek Festival would ever go vegetarian.

Sunday, May 28. The event will feature more than 20 of the region’s food trucks showcasing their best baconinspired dishes. Attendees can also vote on their favorites for multiple awards, such as best in show and most creative. Prices remain the same. May 27-28, 11am-5pm; 1650 Senter Rd, San Jose; mvblfeast.com

The San Jose Greek Festival For almost 50 years now on the weekend following Memorial Day, this quiet Rose Garden area neighborhood transforms into a raucous celebration of all things Greek. The San Jose Greek Festival, held at the St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church, is fun for the whole family with live music, award-winning dance groups and some of the most authentic festival food around. Spanakopites, tyropites, mousaka and loukoumades are just several of the hard-to-pronounce but easy-to-eat items that can be found here. Be Greek for the day, but watch

out for those flying plates. Opa! $5 for adults, $3 for seniors and students, and free to children under 12. Free pass on Facebook page. June 2, 5pm-10pm; June 3, 11am-10pm; June 4, 11am–9pm; 1260 Davis St, San Jose; sanjosegreekfestival.org

Sunnyvale Art, Wine and Music Festival With more than 350 artists slated to perform—including Eagles and Beatles tribute bands—this event is just as much a rock & roll festival as it is about the art and wine. That’s not to say it won’t have quality spirits, such as margaritas, sangria, Champagne, wine and craft beers on tap to really get the party atmosphere going. A quality food court and carnival rides for the kids help solidify this as one of the best all-ages events in the South Bay. Free. June 3-4; Murphy Ave, Sunnyvale; svcoc.org

Silicon Valley BBQ Championship The second largest Kansas City Barbeque Society-sanctioned event on the West Coast returns for another year of smoke, meat and suds. Fifty professional teams will

An inside look at San Jose politics

BY THE NUMBERS

1.3 MIL

$

San Jose police have been stocking up on riot gear, and at a faster pace than some other law enforcement agencies. That’s according to MuckRock, a journalism nonprofit that publishes data gleaned from public records. Documents unearthed through a Freedom of Information Act request found that the San Jose Police Department have shelled out $1.3 million since 2012 for helmets with visors and throat guards, aluminum batons, less-than-lethal weapons and other defensive equipment. The city authorized SJPD to spend $530,000 on protective gear in 2015 through last year. To San Jose’s credit, MuckRock notes, the agency has spent less on weaponry than other major cities.

Cloudflare Alters Milpitas Top Exec Billed Taxpayers for Personal Legal Fees Reporting Policy BY JENNIFER WADSWORTH for Racist Sites BUSTED Newly released records confirm that Milpitas’ city manager used public money for personal bills.

Milpitas City Manager Tom Williams tried to get taxpayers to cover $37,000 in personal legal expenses, San Jose Inside has learned. Invoices obtained through a Public Records Act request show that Williams charged his city-issued credit card $7,000 to pay Claire Cochran, his personal attorney at Ad Astra Law Group, and later requested another $30,000 for the same firm. In a letter disclosed to San Jose Inside last week, Milpitas’ city attorney, Chris Diaz, warned Williams that he had misused public funds and the actions were not only grounds for termination, but could also be a felony punishable by imprisonment. The city’s outsourced legal counsel also described in the May 5 notice that Williams had been directed to reimburse the city for the charges. Since that report, San Jose Inside has obtained copies of the financial records,

which show two separate payments for “outside legal advisory services.” The statements—available online here—show that Williams got his executive assistant, Rachelle Currie, to sign off on a $7,000 charge on March 17, and a request for $30,000 more on April 28. Sources say those expenses were incurred because Williams was building a legal case against Mayor Rich Tran, who has publicly criticized the city manager’s connection to several high-priced legal settlements. Williams’ lawyer from Ad Astra sent Tran a cease-and-desist letter in April, accusing the 32-year-old mayor of discriminating against the 53-yearold city manager because of his age. The letter also accuses Tran of harassment and demands more than $1 million from the city. In his cautionary letter dated May 5, Diaz indicates that Ad Astra was

hired for Williams’ own benefit. He also describes how city auditors might not have discovered the inappropriate charges were it not for media reports linking Ad Astra to the cease-and-desist notice from Williams to Tran. The city manager defended the expense, saying he reached out to the law firm because several city employees had filed complaints about Tran. However, Williams tried as recently as the end of April to get the city to pay for his legal issues with the mayor. The Santa Clara County District Attorney’s Office confirmed to San Jose Inside on Monday that it is keeping an eye on the situation. “Right now we are monitoring,” said John Chase, the prosecutor in charge of the DA’s public integrity unit. Chase added that his office is “waiting to see what the city of Milpitas learns, what those legal services were.”

Cloudflare, a Silicon Valley-based content delivery network that counts racist websites among its clients, changed a key company policy last week, following a story by ProPublica that was republished in Metro. The company announced that “it will change its policies to allow people to more safely lodge complaints about the material on the hate sites,” ProPublica reported, rather than passing over personally identifying information to the hate sites as it had done in the past. “We have to have ways for people to report that abuse and not have people feel they are being bullied or threatened,” Cloudflare CEO Matthew Prince told the news organization. Based in San Francisco, one of Cloudlfare’s largest data centers is located in San Jose. Cloudflare also helps manage some of Metro’s online properties. —Silicon Valley Newsroom

Thu, 8pm, $14+ Rooster T. Feathers, Sunnyvale Rising New York comedian Sam Morril doesn’t look at the world the same way everyone else does. It would seem he sees things just a few shades darker. Fortunately for comedy fans, Morril is quite adept at turning his gloomy observations into gut-busting jokes. Breaking up, only to get back together and break up once again, he says, is like being on plane that almost crashes but then miraculously lands—“and then you die on the cab ride home.” He’s been on Conan, Fox News’ Red Eye, NBC’s Last Comic Standing and he recently made his debut on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. (NV)

RAPTURE, BLISTER, BURN Thu, 8pm, $19+ City Lights Theater, San Jose A career woman, a housewife and an elderly widow attempt to come to an understanding of what it takes to find happiness in the modern world. Emotions swirl and tensions run high as 20thcentury feminist ideals, reality TV and crumbling marriages are all thrown into the cocktail shaker— along with plenty of vodka and vermouth. Funny and relevant, City Lights’ production of this Pulitzer-nominated play offers a pointed look at the private lives of three generations of women and the choices they’ve made in the name of love and success. Runs through June 18. (CM)

New this year is an area focused on the future of food. See if you have a palate for insects, learn about vertical greenhouses and sample super foods from around the world. Also at the Faire: medical tech makers, “Lockpicking 101,” and robots, of course. (NV)

Those who grew up watching Sesame Street will find a familiar face in Sonia Manzano. The actress, who played shop owner Maria, made her first appearance on the program back in 1971. Since then, she’s received 15 Emmys for her writing on the show and authored four children’s books. She retired in 2015. Manzano receives the Children’s Museum of San Jose’s Legacy for Children Award, which is presented every year to honor those dedicated to the advancement of children’s lives and education. Manzano’s work on the show has been praised for contributing to the development of social and emotional skills, like compassion and empathy in young viewers. (YK)

WINGS OF FREEDOM Fri, All Day, $15 Moffett Airfield, Mountain View The Wings of Freedom tour is celebrating its 28th year of letting people experience aviation history. The air show will include four World War II-era bomber aircraft, one of which—the B-24J—is the last remaining example of its type still in flying condition. Basic admission gives visitors access to four historic aircraft. Attendees looking to get a bit more hands-on can pay extra to take a 30 minute flight aboard one of the planes. The Collings Foundation is also offering flight training sessions in one of the fighters for those hoping to get some “stick time.” Runs through May 27. (YK)

The man behind the 2012 house banger “Molly” as well as that remix of Lana Del Rey’s “Summertime Sadness”—yeah, you know the one—Cedric Gervais, knows a thing or two about getting dance floors moving. Born in France, Gervais relocated to Miami Beach when he was just 19. The young Gervais cut his teeth spinning in a number of clubs in the nightlife mecca of South Beach. The EDM producer’s latest single, “Touch The Sky,” featuring Digital Farm Animals and Dallas Austin, boasts more than 97,000 plays on YouTube. John Beaver opens with a supporting set. (NV)

San Jose-based cellist, producer and artistic director Cellista (née Freya Seeburger) is a classical musician with deep roots in hiphop, metal and electronic music. Her latest venture, Finding San Jose, is an ode to the city she calls home, and features titles such as “St. James Park and “A Conversation at Trial’s.” Cellista has transformed her full-length album into theatrical form by interweaving film, dance and music into a “stage poem.” Choreographed by Lilith Ransom of Ransom Dance and MojoCeVille of Haus Serpens Cabaret, the piece debuted to great acclaim in San Francisco. Now it comes home. (NV)

South Bay Musical Theatre presents their production of the 1956 classic My Fair Lady—the story of a poor, cockney flower girl, who strives to climb her way into polite society with the help of brilliant but crotchety language tutor. Ray D’Ambrosio and Erin Reis star in this rendition as Henry Higgins and Eliza Doolittle respectively. Other notable cast members this time around include Jay Steele playing Alfred P. Doolittle, who was a fantastic addition to City Lights’ production of The Elephant Man last year. The opening night gala will feature a complimentary bubbly reception after the show.

Architect Allure OWN IT Joseph Eichler helped many local families achieve the American dream—in style.

Home is where the midcentury art is in Los Altos’ new ‘Eichler Homes’ exhibit BY JEFFREY EDALATPOUR

T

HERE’S AT LEAST one Eichler home for sale right now in Sunnyvale. It’s a fourbedroom, two-bath listed at just under $2 million. What a difference seven decades make. In a 1949 ad on display in Eichler Homes: Modernism for the Masses, you could put $600 down near Saratoga Road in the same city and own one of “36 Strikingly Beautiful NEW 3 BEDROOM HOMES!”

That’s about $6,000 today—in an age when the median down payment on a South Bay home approaches the $200,000 mark. But the past affordability of Eichler homes is just one set of facts presented at the Los Altos History Museum’s new exhibit about the builder Joseph Eichler and his enterprising vision. When I first read about the exhibit, I imagined the curatorial focus would center on photography. I expected to find large framed prints of Eichler homes, both interior and exterior shots, like the ones made by the late California photographer Larry Sultan. But he made visual stories out of the interplay between his subjects and the houses they lived in, not just the

buildings themselves. While there are several photographs of houses at the museum, they’re not front and center. Nor do the photographs reveal much about the specific lives of the owners. Instead, the museum opts for a more straightforward account of the notable midcentury modern players, their philosophy and aesthetic. Large posters mounted on the walls offer brief history lessons summarizing the development and subsequent construction of nearly 11,000 homes between 1947 and 1974, the year of Eichler’s death. According to one, the tract home's anonymity and sameness was part of the appeal: "Eichler tracts were designed with wide streets that invited engagement among the neighbors." There are also short paragraphs about other topics like preservation, local projects, biographies of Eichler himself and Robert Anshen, A. Quincy Jones, and Frederick E.

Emmons, the architects with whom he most frequently collaborated. Eichler’s philosophy is summed up on one poster: “He was determined to offer houses and neighborhoods that provided families a way to live more fully than they do when housing is considered to be nothing more than mere shelter.” The aim was to make a well-designed, contemporary home affordable for the average Joe. Eichler Homes also sets out to reacquaint the 21st century visitor with the midcentury lifestyle. While the exhibit's tone is reverential toward the houses, equal space is also given to home furnishings. Glass cases contain candleholders, dishware, cutlery, teapots, vases and one gleaming toaster. The inclusion of I'm OK – You're OK, the 1969 selfhelp book, is particularly helpful in locating the psyche of that era’s residents. You can picture husbands and wives bringing their copies of the book down to Big Sur for a weekend of healing at the Esalen Institute. Standing out from all the bric-abrac are a few of the iconic chairs designed by Ray and Charles Eames. There’s even a splendid Hang It All, one of their fanciful, multicolored coat hangers. Owning an Eichler home, the exhibit underlines, also meant owning furniture that not only paired well with the building materials but also looked and felt like it belonged there. For some, this style of architecture—the minimalism, the confluence of indoors and out, the floor-to-ceiling glass—has little appeal. For others like Margot Gordon, “it was love at first sight.” Her testimonial also hangs in the museum. In 1961, Gordon and her husband bought their first one in Sunnyvale, their second five years later in Los Altos. Both times Eichler himself agreed to extend their down payments so they could afford to buy into the housing market. Eichler Homes offers a convincing array of evidence that they don’t build houses like they used to, nor builders either.

Silent Poetry SOCIETAL VERSES Cynthia Nixon, right, takes on the role of poet Emily Dickinson in the new biopic from Terence Davies.

‘A Quiet Passion’ considers the life of Emily Dickinson BY RICHARD VON BUSACK

T

HE TITLE OF A Quiet Passion is kind of lethal. “Quiet” is a risky word in the movie biz. The film’s pace is very deliberate—the first impression is of a game that went into extra innings. There’s a line here any critic could take to heart: “All the best compliments are dubious.” Praising the deliberateness of this movie’s pace may make it sound boring.

When it’s over, it’s clear that the eminent director Terence Davies, a master of moody, immersive cinema, needed time to contrast the body and soul of his subject. Davies (Distant Voices, Still Lives) focuses on Emily Dickinson (Cynthia Nixon), a lady of solitude and physical sufferings: “The Queen of Cavalry” as she called herself, tortured to an early grave at 55 by Bright’s disease. She was the middle daughter of a family of three in Amherst, Massachusetts. The father (Keith Carradine) was a stern patriarch of a lawyer, but he had the intelligence to let his daughter live her unmarried life, letting her rise at 3 to get some writing time in before the sunrise. This anchoress saint of poetry only published a few poems in her lifetime,

and hand-stitched her verse into little chapbooks. The apparent lightness of the lines disguise their tensile strength; her telegraphic bursts of words, connected by dashes, are as light as a feather and as dense a $6 loaf of bread. Dickinson capitalizes nouns and ideas like a German, but she didn’t address herself to Great Themes, at least not in the 19th century understanding of what great themes were. As critic Edmund Wilson noted, Dickinson barely mentioned the Civil War in her writings. What was seen of her poetry was dismissed, as by one editor, as “Childish, like nursery rhymes.” When a few admirers turn up, later in life, she treats them with arrogance. She’s particularly disapproving of a newspaper editor who re-punctuated her verse for “clarity.” “Clarity is one thing, obviousness is another,” she insists. Dickinson’s struggle against lifelong underestimation had its light side. Sometimes wrenchingly sad, A Quiet

Passion is a funny movie, by far Davies’ funniest. The Sex and the City veteran Nixon captures the yeast as well as the starch of Dickinson. The movie is like a version of Much Ado About Nothing, in which a Beatrice never finds her Benedict. This vision of the poet as a keen epigrammatic woman is beguiling. And despite what’s been said, this isn’t fluffy and teeth-achingly arch as Whit Stillman. A Quiet Passion speculates on Dickinson’s own unfulfilled passions. One love might have been her tender friendship with a bold and funny Miss Buffam (Catherine Bailey) a similarly gifted wit. But the poet also had her famous crush on a charismatic married pastor named Wadsworth (Miles Richardson), whose wife (Simone Milsdochter) is a comedy Victorian horror. Something Davies captures is the formality of people who have never seen themselves on camera, or heard their voices in recording. They listen to one another intently—they don’t finish each other’s sentences. In Emily’s family circle, gradually broken by death, we see a void that can’t be filled—“you cannot solder an abyss with air,” as Dickinson wrote. In this world, lit by hearth or candle, music has a uniquely rapturous force. (A slow piano version of “I Dream of Jeannie” sounds as fresh, tentative, just as if Stephen Foster had just composed it.) There aren’t many exteriors in the film, but the lambency of the interior light saves you from feeling trapped indoors. At last, the “bridegroom” Death, whom Dickinson longs for in her verse, comes to consummate their marriage. Her final gasping agony mimics orgasm, which sounds grotesque on paper, but it’s a brave and clear-eyed director’s vision of one last sordid way body and soul are made to share their lot. The familiar lines are overlaid on the funeral: “As I could not stop for death…”— the camera suspended over the open grave, taking the measure of Dickinson’s last, safest home. In this view, as the Andrew Marvell verse puts it, it’s a fine and private place.

metroactive FILM LONG STRANGE TRIP

Jerry Garcia is 22 years dead this summer—take that in. Berkeleyraised documentarian Amir Bar-Lev’s monumental four-hour-long film about the Grateful Dead can neither be called indecently early nor rushed to completion. Long Strange Trip functions on a lot of levels. Bar-Lev (of The Tillman Story) explains the Dead as an enduring conduit between the pranksterish Palo Alto-branch of the Beat era and the various countercultures of our own time. It’s a record of the joy the Dead brought to listeners for 30 years, and an account of Garcia’s excesses of work and substance abuse. It’s also the story of a juggernaut band with a monster 100-foot-tall sound system, which was set up and pulled down 80 times a year for almost a decade. The movie sets up the fork of a problem: people who remind us to enjoy ourselves before we eventually die may end up seeming morbid. Thus one man’s cuddly, portly hippie would thus be another man’s “deliverer of dark news.”The Dead may have been the ultimate LSD band because of the way they catered to both sides of the trip: the shuffling exuberance of the rise, and the graveyard despair of the 4am comedown. Death was on their minds from the beginning: the band’s name came from the Egyptian Book of the Dead; the skull and roses image pilfered from E. J. Sullivan’s illustrations for the Sufi-ish poet Omar Khyyam, himself a great one for reminding the reader of the fleeing time. Even their own label didn’t quite get them at first—former WB executive Joe Smith recalls the problem of trying to sell a record called “Aoxomaxoa” when he couldn’t even pronounce its name. The label had more success after they moved to Marin and created their most enduring albums, the Bakersfield countrified “Workingman’s Dead” and “American Beauty.” There’s tart and informed commentary by Sam Cutler, a Brit who worked as the Dead’s road manager—“children in a man’s world,” is how he describes the Dead’s approach to money. By contrast, bass player Phil Lesh notes that the Dead’s tolerance of live taping was described later as a “visionary business practice,” when in fact it was just the band’s usual tack of taking the path of least resistance. Crisp montage and thoughtful interviews mark this voyage. There are some sad discoveries, as in the story of Garcia’s high school girlfriend Barbara Meier, who came back into Jerry’s life close to the end. Because of her, Garcia almost got away from the business that more or less killed him; she claims that, thinking of the royalties from Ben and Jerry’s Cherry Garcia, Jerry said, “I could just

REVIEW

live off the ice cream money.” Garcia’s daughter Trixie sums up the life of too many drugs and the effects of diabetes: “I wish he would have just got some fucking rest.” A particularly well-chosen mix of some 60 songs by the band fits the history of this long-lived act, both the dawning and the ending of their time. The music is maybe sadder than you remember, but the Grateful Dead were the kind of fun that should have lasted a lifetime. (May 25 at Camera Cinemas. June 2 on Amazon.) (RvB)

Revivals BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY’S/ THE APARTMENT

(1961/1960) Two melancholy farces, adult movies in their day, spotlighting two drastically different but equally beloved girls of the Mad Men era. Breakfast at Tiffany’s is a soft-pedalling of Truman Capote’s story about a courtesan he knew once. Scrubbed a bit for Hollywood is Audrey Hepburn’s indelible Holly Golightly. Like the orange cat who is her familiar, she seeks love without reciprocation and shelter without responsibility. She’s admired at a distance by a failed novelist, Paul (George Peppard, no help), who is kept by a patron (Patricia Neal, miscast as an elder harpy—one feels she deserves a better class of trick). Blake Edwards is in his slapstick element during the wild party scene, and he later did an entire movie on that theme. Modern audiences choke on their gorge at Mickey Rooney’s buck-toothed Japanese makeup, but oddly, Breakfast at Tiffany’s is still popular in Tokyo, where Holly Golightly is still on billboards and in advertisements. When Hepburn gets out on her fire escape and plinks a sad Henry Mancini waltz titled “Moon River” on her guitar, it’s easy to understand why this movie survived its era. The location footage exemplifies New York when it was New York, with the river light not yet blocked out by high-rises. Never noted enough: how remarkably good Buddy Ebsen is as a man from Miss Golightly’s past, consulting with Paul in a deserted Central Park in the morning. BILLED WITH The Apartment. Jack Lemmon as an eager office worker who gets into the pandering business on the side, loaning out his apartment as a trysting spot for his bosses— particularly Fred MacMurray, always at his nastiest when Billy Wilder directed him. Its moralizing—the scene defining the Yiddish word mensch is a real finger-wagger, and “shut up and deal” seems like a depressing forecast for a potential marriage. Yet Shirley MacLaine is irrepressible as the elevator operator who gets her heart broken; she’s quick and witty and very appealing. (May 19-21 at the Stanford Theatre.) (RvB)

ALIENATION In ‘Alien: Covenant,’ a haunting score and beautiful production can’t ward off ultimate disappointment.

An Interstellar Bummer WITNESS THE FLIGHT of the Covenant, a colonizing space ship of 2104 headed for Origae 6. It is a ship free of anyone who can make an intelligent decision, except for the onboard android. The first mistake is changing course for a seemingly unexplored planet, on grounds of proximity. More wrongheaded choices follow. Alien: Covenant has sterling production design, and an almost regally solemn Jed Curzal score. It mulls the idea that humans and the hellspawn Xenomorphs have a linked destiny. Animated now, as opposed to being acted out by a 7-foot-tall stuntman as in the original, the critters come in all sizes and shapes. They’re as lithe as monkeys, chittering, making creaking noises like sprung floorboards. But director Ridley Scott is up to more than retrofitting the origin of the aliens—he contrasts the world of the religiously faithful with those of us who’d prefer to do without celestial help. Something—a rewrite? Several?—skimped on the problem of a religious officer (Billy Crudup) who is peeved about being outnumbered by humanists. There’s also a debate about human intentions between a pair of “synthetics” (androids). Michael Fassbender plays both, and if there’s anything particularly good about this movie, it’s the way these two interact…at

one point, in a well-made fight scene. Do the deep-dish ideas get in the way of the gut-busting, or is it the other way around? There’s more monster for the buck than there was in the previous Prometheus, but the human hosts don’t make an impression. I’ll walk that Alien: Covenant back. Katherine Waterston makes an impression, a R; 2hrs, 2 min. negative one. Her Daniels, Opens Friday a terraformer who just valleywide wanted a cabin by a lake on a faraway planet, is widowed right away (the lost spouse is James Franco). Eventually, she gets in the Ripley game, standing in for Sigourney Weaver, and there’s just no substitution. She’s a very wet actress, and tragedy is becoming a speciality. She wept frequently in Fantastic Beasts, too. The parts that work best are everyday sci-fi tentpole material; the oddly similar theme in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 was far more bracing, though. Scott has said that he’s a better director in old age than he was as a young man. The elder director, and the elder man, can end up judging the human race as damned and worthy of destruction. It’s an argument, but as theme for an entertainment, it’s just plain depressing. —Richard von Busack

process of pursuing a song idea, they hardly fight about anything. Their meticulous style of working, writing and collaborating together is manifested in their sophomore album, Conscious, which was released last June. The album was entirely produced by Joel Little, the music guru responsible for producing Lorde’s “Royals.” “We called it Conscious because everything was a lot more deliberate when it came to writing this album, this one was much more thought out,” Caleb says. “For this one we wrote a lot of songs and then we decided which ones to take out, which put on the album, which ones felt good together.”

Family Matters BROODING SIBLINGS New Zealand natives Caleb and Georgia Nott craft moody electronic tunes as Broods.

Brother-sister electronic duo Broods open for Zedd at Frost Festival BY BENJAMIN SIEPAK

T

HE BROTHER-SISTER bond between Caleb and Georgia Nott isn’t exactly the stereotypical sibling relationship. Instead of taking awkward family portraits and nitpicking each other’s choices in romantic partners, these New Zealand-born sibs have been busy taking the indiepop world by storm.

The Notts have been inseparable since their early ages, raised in a family where music was the backbone. “Me and Georgia pretty much grew up like twins,” Caleb says. “We won the talent show at 10 years old by singing Big Yellow Taxi, I played the guitar and she sang.” The talent show victory is all that was needed to propel their musical interest into an obsession. Fast-forward a decade later, and the duo—now internationally known as Broods—have signed their first major record deal with Capitol Records, are headlining their own North American tour, and are collaborating

with indie-pop superstars like Lorde and Tove Lo. The name Broods came as a clever suggestion from the band manager, but initially wasn’t Caleb’s favorite. “At first I thought it was stupid, I thought it sounded like some sort of skin disease or something,” Caleb says. However, when the pair were just days away from dropping their first single, “Bridges,” they settled on the name. Broods have found major success internationally, and Caleb says he couldn’t have a better partner to share the stages and stardom with. “I think when it comes to making music, we are genuinely always on the same page, to be honest,” Caleb says. “If one of us doesn’t like a song, then we drop it—we don’t argue about it, we don’t get in a huff about it.” Caleb says that by both having the mutual agreement for the foregoing

When it comes to making music, we are genuinely always on the same page “Heartlines,” the hit single off Conscious boasts over 19 million streams—a pleasant surprise for the duo. “That wasn’t really the big one for us in our mind to be honest,” Caleb says. “Apparently, that was the biggest song, so we went for it and put it up as a single, but we didn’t write it as a single. We don’t write any songs as a single. We don’t really go into the studio like that at all.” They followed the album with a sold-out 2016 U.S. headlining tour before performing at Coachella last month. Now, they’re shifting gears in preparation for yet another tour headlining sold-out venues across North America as their international popularity continues to skyrocket. Before the tour gets off and running, the Broods will be headlining the 6th Annual Frost Music and Arts Festival with Zedd this Saturday at Stanford Stadium.

COOKIE P-Lo, co-founder of HBK, will host a listening party for his new LP at C.R.E.A.M. in San Jose

Ice Cream Beats TEN SECONDS INTO album-opener “The One,” P-Lo dispenses with any question of where his sonic loyalties lie. A bouncing xylophone melody combines with a familiar G-Funk bassline to make an unmistakable bay sound. It’s the lead off track to More Than Anything, a project that expands on P-Lo’s past work, but still maintains a lot of the same ideas he’s been experimenting with since he co-founded hip-hop collective HBK with Richmond rapper Iamsu! back in 2008. P-Lo will be celebrating the release of the new record by playing it while serving ice cream to fans in downtown San Jose on May 19. “Anything made in the Bay is something I hold dear to my heart,” P-Lo says, explaining the event.

P-Lo Listening Party

May 19, Free Still buzzing off a handful of strong mixtapes, an EP C.R.E.A.M., and a slew of production credits on albums by Yo Gotti, San Jose YG and Kamaiyah, P-Lo’s star has risen the past few years—which was helped in no small part thanks to his production credit on Yo Gotti’s “Act Right.” He lent the song an infectious combination of steady trap snares and well-placed synthesizers that helped propel it into the Hot 100, which opened some doors for him. “I was able to get more and more placements from that track,” P-Lo says, “I actually ended up getting a publishing deal from that song. It definitely put me in a position to do other things.” P-Lo has been on both sides of the boards since the inception of HBK and the group’s resident production team “The Invasion.” The past few years have marked a noticeable move towards rapping for the Pinole native. “I feel like my focus early on was really production, but these days my focus has been on my artist side. That’s ultimately what I really wanted to do,” P-Lo says. He went on to explain that his focus as a producer was fueled by his desire to find a place as a rapper. No matter what he’s recognized for though, one thing that remains constant is the place his music represents—the Bay Area. On the E-40 featuring “Put Me On Somethin” P-Lo proclaims “Last year they didn’t even like the Bay.” He explains that from his point of view the Bay Area has gone unrecognized for its status as a constant source of hiphop’s innovators. He pointed out that Zaytoven, a forefather of the current permutation of trap music hails from San Francisco. —Yousif Kassab

ADVICE GODDESS

By AMY ALKON

metroactive.com | sanjose.com | metrosiliconvalley.com | MAY 17-23, 2017

AdviceAmy@AOL.com

I’m a 40-year-old man who can’t seem to keep a relationship going for more than a year. There’s never bitter fighting or betrayal. I just gradually lose interest. I can’t blame my girlfriends—most of whom are pretty exciting people. I’m the problem, but why? And can I change?—Frustrated Ever gotten new carpeting? The first month, it’s “No shoes and no drinks whatsoever in the living room!” A few months after that: “Oh, we don’t use glasses anymore. Just splash red wine around and drink right off the rug.” In the happiness research world, the psychological shift behind this is called “hedonic adaptation”—“hedonic” from the Greek word for pleasure and “adaptation” to describe how we acclimate to new stuff or situations in our lives. They rather quickly stop giving us the buzz (or bite) they did at first, and we get pitched right back to our baseline feeling of well-being (Yeahwhatevsville). Bummer, huh? But there’s an upside. Psychologists Timothy Wilson and Dan Gilbert explain that hedonic adaptation is part of our “psychological immune system,” helping us recover from all the kicks in the teeth and boys’ bathroom swirlies of life. There’s another possible bummer at work here, per your longing for less wilty love. You may be more “sensationseeking” than most people. If this is driving you, basically, you want it new, you want it now, and all the better if it’s a little life-threatening. In other words, some benefits of a committed

relationship, like deeply knowing another person, may end up being deeply boring to you. Still, part of your problem may be a hopeful approach—simply hoping your relationships don’t die instead of taking steps to prevent that. Research by psychologist Sonja Lyubomirsky finds that three “intentional activities” help keep hedonic adaptation from overtaking a relationship—appreciating, injecting variety, and incorporating surprise. Appreciating simply means regularly reviewing and “savoring” what’s great about your partner and what you have together. (Even better if you also express it to them). Bringing in variety and surprise means filling the relationship with “unexpected moments” and “unpredictable pleasures,” big and small. Be honest with women about your befizzlement problem. When you find one who’s up for the challenge, get cracking with her on keeping the excitement alive. Be sure to do this both in romantic day-to-day ways and, say, with the perfect romantic weekend for a guy like you—one that starts with the valet at the spa opening the trunk, removing the hood over your head, and cutting the zip ties so you can go take a sauna.

Two years ago, I met this beautiful, intriguing girl. I gave her my number, but she never called. Last week, she texted out of the blue. Weird! My friend said she probably had a boyfriend until now. Do women really hoard men’s info in case their relationship tanks?—Wondering Consider the male BFF. A woman may not consciously think of hers as her backup man. But should her relationship go kaput, there he is— perfectly situated to dry her tears. Um, with his penis. There seems to be an evolutionary adaptation for people in relationships— especially women—to line up backup mates. It’s basically a form of doomsday prepping: two eligible men on the shelves of a woman’s mind and the phone number of another on a crumpled ATM receipt in her wallet. Evolutionary psychologists Joshua Duntley and David Buss explain that in ancestral times, even people

“experiencing high relationship satisfaction would have benefited from cultivating potential replacement mates” in case their partner cheated, ditched them, died, or dropped a few rungs in mate value. A woman whose partner left or died “would have suffered a lapse in protection, mate investment, and resources for her children, much like people who transition between jobs in the modern environment sometimes suffer a lapse in insurance coverage.” Getting back to this woman who texted you, she probably saw something in you from the start but was otherwise encumbered. So, yes, she’s likely been carrying a torch for you.

FREE WILL ASTROLOGY ARIES (March 21-April 19): "A 2-year-old kid is like using a blender, but you don't have a top for it," said comedian Jerry Seinfeld. Would you like to avoid a scenario like that, Aries? Would you prefer not to see what happens if your life has resemblances to turning on a topless blender that's full of ingredients? Yes? Then please find the top and put it on! And if you can't locate the proper top, use a dinner plate or newspaper or pizza box. OK? It's not too late. Even if the blender is already spewing almond milk and banana fragments and protein powder all over the ceiling. Better late than never! TAURUS (April 20-May 20): My pregnant friend

Myrna is determined to avoid giving birth via cesarean section. She believes that the best way for her son to enter the world is by him doing the hard work of squeezing through the narrow birth canal. That struggle will fortify his willpower and mobilize him to summon equally strenuous efforts in response to future challenges. It's an interesting theory. I suggest you consider it as you contemplate how you're going to get yourself reborn.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): I invite you to try

the following meditation: Picture yourself filling garbage bags with stuff that reminds you of what you used to be and don't want to be any more. Add anything that feels like decrepit emotional baggage or that serves as a worn-out psychological crutch. When you've gathered up all the props and accessories that demoralize you, imagine yourself going to a beach where you build a big bonfire and hurl your mess into the flames. As you dance around the conflagration, exorcise the voices in your head that tell you boring stories about yourself. Sing songs that have as much power to relieve and release you as a spectacular orgasm.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): In normal times, your guardian animal ally might be the turtle, crab, seahorse, or manta ray. But in the next three weeks, it's the cockroach. This unfairly maligned creature is legendary for its power to thrive in virtually any environment, and I think you will have a similar resourcefulness. Like the cockroach, you will do more than merely cope with awkward adventures and complicated transitions; you will flourish. One caution: It's possible that your adaptability may bother people who are less flexible and enterprising than you. To keep that from being a problem, be empathetic as you help them adapt. (P.S. Your temporary animal ally is exceptionally well-groomed. Cockroaches clean themselves as much as cats do.) LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Lady Jane Grey was crowned Queen of England in July 1553, but she ruled for just nine days before being deposed. I invite you to think back to a time in your own past when victory was short-lived. Maybe you accomplished a gratifying feat after an arduous struggle, only to have it quickly eclipsed by a twist of fate. Perhaps you finally made it into the limelight but then lost your audience to a distracting brouhaha. But here's the good news: Whatever it was—a temporary triumph? incomplete success? nullified conquest?—you will soon have a chance to find redemption for it.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): While shopping at a

funky yard sale, I found the torn-off cover of a book titled You're a Genius and I Can Prove It. Sadly, the rest of the book was not available. Later I searched for it in online bookstores, and found it was out of print. That's unfortunate, because now would be an excellent time for you to peruse a text like this. Why? Because you need specific, detailed evidence of how unique and compelling you are—concrete data that will provide an antidote to your habitual self-doubts and consecrate your growing sense of self-worth. Here's what I suggest you do: Write an essay entitled "I'm an Interesting Character and Here's the Proof."

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Leonardo da Vinci wrote a bestiary, an odd little book in which he drew moral conclusions from the behavior of animals. One of his descriptions will be useful for you to contemplate in the near future. It was centered on what he called the "wild ass," which we might refer to as an undomesticated donkey. Leonardo said that this beast, "going to the fountain to drink and finding the water muddy, is never too thirsty to wait until it becomes clear before satisfying himself."

By ROB BREZSNY week of May 17

That's a useful fable to contemplate, Libra. Be patient as you go in search of what's pure and clean and good for you. (The translation from the Italian is by Oliver Evans.)

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): My friend Allie works

as a matchmaker. She has an instinctive skill at reading the potential chemistry between people. One of her key strategies is to urge her clients to write mission statements. "What would your ideal marriage look like?" she asks them. Once they have clarified what they want, the process of finding a mate seems to become easier and more fun. In accordance with the astrological omens, Scorpio, I suggest you try this exercise—even if you are already in a committed relationship. It's an excellent time to get very specific about the inspired togetherness you're willing to work hard to create.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): In ancient Greek myth, Tiresias was a prophet who could draw useful revelations by interpreting the singing of birds. Spirits of the dead helped him devise his prognostications, too. He was in constant demand for revelations about the future. But his greatest claim to fame was the fact that a goddess magically transformed him into a woman for seven years. After that, he could speak with authority about how both genders experienced the world. This enhanced his wisdom immeasurably, adding to his oracular power. Are you interested in a less drastic but highly educational lesson, Sagittarius? Would you like to see life from a very different perspective from the one you're accustomed to? It's available to you if you want it. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): "You remind

me of the parts of myself that I will never have a chance to meet," writes poet Mariah Gordon-Dyke, addressing a lover. Have you ever felt like saying that to a beloved ally, Capricorn? If so, I have good news: You now have an opportunity to meet and greet parts of yourself that have previously been hidden from you—aspects of your deep soul that up until now you may only have caught glimpses of. Celebrate this homecoming!

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): I predict that you won't be bitten by a dog or embarrassed by a stain or pounced on by a lawyer. Nor will you lose your keys or get yelled at by a friend or oversleep for a big appointment. On the contrary! I think you'll be wise to expect the best. The following events are quite possible: You may be complimented by a person who's in a position to help you. You could be invited into a place that had previously been off-limits. While eavesdropping, you might pick up a useful clue, and while daydreaming you could recover an important memory you'd lost. Good luck like this is even more likely to sweep into your life if you work on ripening the most immature part of your personality. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Time out. It's intermission. Give yourself permission to be spacious and slow. Then, when you're sweetly empty—this may take a few days—seek out experiences that appeal primarily to your wild and tender heart as opposed to your wild and jumpy mind. Just forget about the theories you believe in and the ideas you regard as central to your philosophy of life. Instead, work on developing brisk new approaches to your relationship with your feelings. Like what? Become more conscious of them, for example. Express gratitude for what they teach you. Boost your trust for their power to reveal what your mind sometimes hides from you. Homework: Imagine what your life would be like if you even partially licked your worst fear. Describe this new world.

‘The River’s Edge’ anniversary recalls memories of teenage wasteland BY GARY SINGH

A

FEW STORIES came out last week to mark the 30th anniversary of the 1987 film The River’s Edge, based on a grotesque murder in Milpitas. The teenage killer left his victim’s corpse in the woods for a few days, inviting his friends to come over and check it out. Only then was the crime finally reported.

It was a horrific incident that unleashed a national media firestorm. When the film came out, it likewise shocked the country. The River’s Edge opens with the killer sitting at the victim’s body and then cuts to him and his pals trying to buy beer at a Stop ‘n’ Go convenience store, which were common in those days. Then we get an 80-minute window into the lives of alienated teenagers dealing with the fallout, a picture that successfully flipped the bird at all the Molly Ringwald-worshipping mallrat garbage that constituted teen films at that time. The River’s Edge featured

a then-unknown Keanu Reeves in his first major appearance. Crispin Glover and Dennis Hopper also gave legendary performances. Directed by Tim Hunter, the film was either an abomination or a masterpiece, depending on how much denim and leather one wore as a teenager in the ‘80s—and to what degree one drank outside the Stop ‘n’ Go across from their high school. From this perspective, The River’s Edge was a glorious paean to suburban wasteland despair, accurately depicting disenfranchised, emotionally distant teenagers blasting thrash metal from their beater cars and endlessly searching for Dennis Hopper-style wackos to buy beer for them. That was my life at that time. Musically speaking, Slayer was still an underground band in those

Down by the River

days—the “Reign in Blood” album had not been released as the film was being shot—so only underground troublemakers like us listened to that music. As a result, to hear Slayer in a soundtrack, to see teenagers driving around while playing that music five minutes into the movie, was just plain righteous. Seeing the film at Century 22 on Winchester, a few friends and I even showed up wearing denim and leather, just like the kids in the movie. Legends in our own minds, we did it to horrify others in the theater. I don’t know if it worked. Some more context, if you will: In 1987, a Sony Walkman was $38 at The Good Guys. Brand new CDs at Tower were $14.99. Photo Drive-Up rented VHS tapes for $1 per movie, per day. High culture in South San Jose was essentially driving or taking the bus to Record Factory and arguing with the hair-metal idiot behind the counter as to whether Maxell or TDK blank cassettes were better quality. And it only took a Dio shirt to scare the jocks and cheerleaders in high school. There was nothing else to do except find alcohol and get wasted in parks and hillsides at nighttime. In that sense, The River’s Edge depicted San Jose better than anything I’d seen. I’m just glad this town has a lot of parks. Which is why, 30 years later, I just had to skulk back over to Winchester and see what’s left of the Century theaters, now that Santana Row has for all practical purposes murdered them and left their corpse shells to rot in the open sun. It won’t be long only until they are cannibalized by “The Row.” I got as far as the road sign. That was enough. Right there on Winchester, the old legendary Century Theater sign, familiar as my own reflection in the mirror, now says: Santana Row Customer Parking. To that end, I guess no one should have been surprised when the Century domes were yanked off life support. The traditional cinema experience is fading. Land is expensive around here. Developers are ruthless and selfish because they know that City Hall ultimately won’t care. And so we drift along in the stream of Netflix and YouTube. All of this will produce another generation of bored teenagers filled with despair. But don’t worry. They won’t wind up like characters in The River’s Edge. That would take too much work.
