Hello, Metro. I see you on a weekly basis, never miss a week, never a beat. I don't always agree with you but you always have interesting things to say. You tell me about movies coming out, great places to party on the weekend, which bands are coming to my city, which restaurants I should eat at—you get the picture. What I disagree with are a few small things only—the number of marijuana stores and whatnot that you promote, and the sexual near-pornographic stores and attractions available. This week when I picked you up, after spending some time with you, I had to double-take. I noticed there were not nearly as many marijuana ads in your pages. In fact, what is normally five-plus pages of ads was reduced to just one page. Now, everyone has their opinions and preferences, and I'm one of those—I don't do pot and think today's weed is not your Woodstock high, it's different and more potent. And yes, addictive. Whether or not you meant to reduce your marijuana ads, I thank you, Metro, for doing so. But we'll always be friends no matter what.

Caught in the Act

Some 75 people showed up to Alum Rock Union Elementary School District’s May 10 meeting expecting to weigh in on next year’s budget and an ongoing investigation into financial mismanagement. But those hopes were dashed by about 5:40pm when the meeting was called off because three of five trustees couldn’t make it.

KAREN MARTINEZ had to tend to her sick daughter. KHANH TRAN was on a business trip abroad. And board President

ESAU HERRERA says he had to attend to an undisclosed “family situation.” A group of elementary school kids who planned to sing outside the district office after being publicly commended by the board that night left without getting to perform any of the numbers they practiced. It was a big letdown, Quintero says. And even more so to find out that Herrera apparently played hooky to watch another performance entirely. Quintero says he spotted Herrera hours later leaving a LUIS MIGUEL concert at the SAP Center.

They Did What? SEND TIPS TO FLY@ METRONEWS. COM

“I saw him making his way down the stairs,” Quintero says, “and I ran after him just to confirm. Because I thought, well, I can’t just wonder if it’s actually him or not. And yup, lo and behold, I could see his face.” Quintero says he and his wife went to watch the Mexican pop star in a bid to salvage the evening after the meeting cancellation. The Herrera sighting, however, raised some questions.

RAYMOND MUELLER, who chairs the district’s bond oversight committee and is challenging Herrera’s re-election this fall, sees his absence as yet another sign of the board’s dysfunction. “Conflicts arise and decisions of priority must be made,” Mueller says. “As much as I love MADONNA, and even if it was an exclusive VIP show downtown at a small club, I would not turn my back on the crisis that is happening right now in our schools and with our finances.”

CALL TO ACTION Foothill College student Lydia Jungkind, 19, is one of nine people who filed police reports against Santa Clara Councilman Dominic Caserta.

Dominic Caserta resigns from Santa Clara council, suspends bid for county seat BY JENNIFER WADSWORTH

S

ANTA CLARA Councilman Dominic Caserta has resigned from office and pulled out of the Santa Clara County supervisor race amid mounting allegations of sexual misconduct.

The 43-year-old Santa Clara High School civics teacher, who was a frontrunner in the race to succeed county Supervisor Ken Yeager, made the announcement hours ahead of a public hearing Tuesday for members of the community to testify about his alleged inappropriate behavior. Nine people in the past week have filed police reports against Caserta, who has also been disciplined

multiple times over the years for sexually harassing students. One of those reports involves an allegation that he pressed his clothed groin against a young woman. The embattled former official continues to deny the claims. “The allegations against me are false in every sense of the word, yet I have been tried and convicted in the court of public opinion without due process or recognition of my distinguished service to the school or the city,” he wrote in a statement. “Reading the papers, online reports and watching the news has been unbelievably excruciating.” In his statement, Caserta calls out Santa Clara Unified School District for inadvertently emailing portions of

his personnel file to 1,600 employees, one of whom forwarded several pages of those records to Metro. “When my personnel file was illegally released by the Santa Clara Unified School District [May 7], irreparable harm occurred to me and my family,” he said. “Shortly after, the file was sent to the media by a district employee and a social media circus ensued with just four weeks before the primary election. Political adversaries are motivated to discredit my candidacy, bury me professionally and personally. I will not let that happen.” Santa Clara Unified has remained relatively quiet about the Caserta scandal in the past week, declining multiple requests for comment. Sources at Santa Clara High say Caserta hasn’t shown up to work in the past week and is thought to be on paid leave. Metro broke the story of Caserta’s alleged harassment when his former campaign manager, Ian Crueldad, and former campaign volunteer Lydia Jungkind went public with their claims of misconduct. Jungkind, 19,

said the candidate touched her thighs and hips, kissed her on the cheek and gave her unwanted massages. Crueldad said he witnessed the impropriety firsthand. Within hours of the allegations coming to light, Caserta’s major supporters began withdrawing endorsements for his campaign. Michele Dauber, who heads the campaign to recall Santa Clara County Superior Court Judge Aaron Persky, rescinded her support. The South Bay Labor Council followed suit. His campaign consultant Laura Teutschel quit an hour and 20 minutes after the story went live. An independent expenditure committee that bankrolled Caserta campaign mailers and billboards— which remained posted throughout the South Bay until this week— immediately disbanded. And dozens of current and former students flooded Metro with accounts of Caserta’s misconduct, which they say ranged from inappropriate touching to verbal harassment and abusing his position of authority. Jungkind, who was in class at Foothill College when she heard about Caserta’s resignation, said the news brings some measure of relief. But, she noted, the police investigations are ongoing. “I hope this will get me and other victims closure and time to heal,” she said in a text sent from class. “His press statement, unfortunately, demonstrates that he still thinks of himself as an upstanding community member. He is not. I want to see justice being done with a thorough police investigation. His behavior was harmful, degrading and I am saddened to see that he thinks he is the victim of a witch hunt.” Foothill College, where Caserta met Jungkind while he was teaching political science part-time, has meanwhile asked students to come forward with any unreported misconduct. “Through recent media inquiry, we have been made aware of sexual misconduct allegations by a Foothill student against a parttime instructor,” Foothill College President Thi Thuy Nguyen wrote in an announcement to the student body. “The college has reached out

to the student to offer resources and information regarding student rights and district policies on sexual misconduct. The college has also taken immediate and appropriate steps to respond to the allegations.” A coalition of public safety unions, which withdrew their support along with South Bay Labor last week, held a news conference with Crueldad to put out a similar call to victims. “As police officers, we stand for victims,” San Jose Police Officers’ Association President Paul Kelly said. “As a society, we must redouble our efforts to end the pattern of abusive behavior by men and intervene when a boss is inappropriate with a subordinate or a teacher crosses the line with his students.” Santa Clara Mayor Lisa Gillmor said Caserta made the right decision by stepping down. “His actions have been a terrible stain on our city,” she told reporters Tuesday morning. As a mother with children around the same age as some of Caserta’s accusers, Gillmor said, she feels personally pained by the revelations of the past week. “I feel sorry for what you may have experienced,” Gillmor said, addressing the people Caserta allegedly harmed. “But I also commend you for your courage. It’s not easy for anyone, especially young adults and minors, to stand up to people in positions of power. But many of you stood up. Our community should applaud your bravery.” Now, she said, it’s time to move forward. On May 22, the council will weigh its options for filling Caserta’s seat with the rest of the year left before the end of his term. Councilwoman Pat Mahan expressed concern about Gillmor and her allies seizing upon Caserta’s resignation to advance their own political aims. With that in mind, Mahan, who declined to comment on the charges against Caserta, said she hopes the city will leave his seat vacant until the next election. “There shouldn’t be any backroom deals,” she said. “We should have a free and open and honest election, because five people should not decide the future of Santa Clara.”

NO-TELL MOTEL Who knows what people will encounter on San Jose’s lovely Monterey Road when no cars are allowed on it?

No-Auto Zone

This year’s Viva CalleSJ open streets fest holds potential to be best yet BY GARY SINGH

L

AST WEEK, the city of San Jose announced the route for this year’s annual Viva CalleSJ open streets initiative, which will expose tens of thousands of residents to the best and worst of San Jo, all in one afternoon. On Sept. 23, the route will start at South First and William streets in downtown San Jose, right smack in the middle of the SoFA Street Fair, where 100 bands will already be gigging throughout the afternoon.

Then the route proceeds all the way down Monterey Road, the ChampsElysees of San Jose’s underbelly, before briefly veering down Branham to Martial Cottle Park. As always, various nodes of activity will erupt at specific parts of the route. Every year, Viva CalleSJ creates a temporary autonomous zone by closing several miles of San Jose streets and shutting them off to cars for a day. People can then walk, jog, bike, skate, exercise or play, all to explore specific neighborhoods they don’t normally see, in ways they don’t normally get to do. With the road closed to automobiles, everyone takes to the streets however they want, in

any direction. There is no end and no beginning. Curiosity and the spirit of adventure reign free. Forward-thinking cities all over the world stage similar open streets initiatives, in some places even once a month, and in my view, Viva CalleSJ is one of the most inclusive, unifying events ever to emerge in San Jose. The effect of connecting isolated neighborhoods and previously disparate demographics via open streets really works. It’s obvious to anyone that participates. Last year, the positive response was overwhelming. Lifelong residents explored areas of the city they hadn’t seen in years. Unfortunately, although everyone is informed of the route several months in advance, the celebration does not come without grumblings from angry suburban get-off-mylawn types that for half a day can’t drive their cars to a store two blocks away, or, more cluelessly, didn’t even know the event was happening. This is expected. If Jesus Christ came back to life and gave a public sermon in San Jose, half the city

would probably say, “Why didn’t I know about this?” Nevertheless, I predict this year will be the best Viva CalleSJ ever. The SoFA Street Fair will be a gamechanger for the open streets party. I cannot stress it enough. From there, imagine thousands of people navigating Monterey Road without cars, past miles of crumbling junkie motels, weed-infested vacant lots, bent chain-link fences, trailer parks, hookers, pimps, recycling centers, graffiti-stained tire shops and suncracked parking lots, not to mention Oak Hill Cemetery. An activity hub will exist at Monterey and Umbarger, near what’s left of the County Fairgrounds, possibly the most despair-ridden swath of squandered potential in the entire South Bay. These days the fairgrounds look more like a deserted movie set than anything else, but word has it county fair peeps might help orchestrate a Ferris wheel for Monterey Road, just for Viva CalleSJ. That’s right, instead of clawing at each other’s throats, the county and the city are actually collaborating for once, in this case to get a Ferris wheel rocking. Monterey Road itself soaks in history. It was mythically part of the historic El Camino Real connecting the California missions. Later it became a stagecoach route and then a state highway during the decades before 101 existed. There is perhaps no street more “San Jose” than Monterey Road. This year, the other end of Viva CalleSJ occurs at Martial Cottle Park at Branham and Snell, one of those drab intersections with no pedestrians for a mile each direction and virtually indistinguishable from any Central Valley stopover along Highway 5 to Los Angeles. Martial Cottle Park, though, is a former century-old farm beautifully reincarnated as a urban park with mucho activity space. All in all, for this year’s Viva CalleSJ, I can only say, what a combination: At least 100 bands playing live in the SoFA District. Tens of thousands of people out of their cars on the pavement of Monterey Road. Rock & roll. Suburban underbelly. Strip malls, flower beds, garbage, asphalt, sun, food, drink and San Jose’s agricultural past, all in one day’s adventure. It doesn’t get any more local than that.

T’S HARD TO believe 2018 is approaching the halfway mark. It’s been nearly five months since the holidays, the days are long, the nights are warm and people are itching to cut loose and have a good time. That’s what this guide is for. Consider it a manual for summer fun—a cheat sheet for all the thought-provoking performances, inspiring art, fantastic food and live music that are worth checking out this season. There are up-and-coming bilingual rappers—San Jose-born Snow Tha Product is on the cover—classic and cutting edge plays, outdoor food festivals and celebrations of wine and culture. So, break out the date books, raise a glass and dig in. It’s going to be fun.

ROM A NONEXISTENT singer to some of the founders of European psychedelia, the talented musical acts coming through the South Bay this summer are diverse and impressive. Big-name hip-hop, world-class jazz and buzzy indie rock—it’s all happening. There’s so much going on, it’s hard to narrow down an entire season to a short list of the most essential shows. Still… we tried.

Power Trip & Sheer Mag The Ritz, San Jose | Jun 1 theritzsj.com A dream tour for anyone who likes heavy music but doesn’t care for the machismo, Power Trip and Sheer Mag are for the people. While the metal genre can be a little cliquey and alienating, the Texas thrashers in Power Trip are refreshingly fun and inclusive, while still tearing through riffs like wet tissue. And Sheer Mag take the DNA of ’70s hard rock from the rock stars and give it back to the outcasts.

The Roots The Mountain Winery, Saratoga | Jun 17 mountainwinery.com As time passes, Things Fall Apart, the 1999 album that shot this Philly group to international acclaim, only becomes more powerful. Densely layered and masterfully performed, it was this album that made Black Thought, Questlove and the rest of these jazz-hip-hop fusioneers a household name—long before they joined Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show. Celebrating the past while always looking into the future, The Roots are still one of the best bands in America.

OT DAYS ARE perfect for retreating to the cool interior of a movie theater. But feature films aren’t the only way to beat the heat while taking in visually stimulating material. Silicon Valley has plenty of air-conditioned museums, perfect for chilling out and putting on one’s thinking cap. Here are just a handful of upcoming exhibits to feed your brain this summer.

There you’ll explore the disappearance of a fictional Mount Rushmore-like tribute to the famously whiskered feline and maybe take a selfie or two.

Jun 20-Feb 25 The late Ivorian artist Frédéric Bruly Bouabré (1923-2014) had a mystical vision in 1948. Afterward, he changed his name to Cheik Nadro and developed a visual alphabet to preserve his native language.

Riggs shares a pop art sensibility with his contemporary the L.A.-based artist Eric White. Both he and White bend contemporary imagery into painted collages that subvert linear narratives.

KESSEL RUNNER Alden Ehrenreich plays a young Han Solo and shares the screen with Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke and Donald Glover in ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story.’

Drawn Together BY RICHARD VON BUSACK

I

N A YEAR when The Avengers made what seemed like their final assembly (prior to disassembling before our horrified eyes), teamwork is the zeitgeisty concept for this summer’s films. There are exceptions to this rule, in the standard action movie template: one big man against a skyscraper of doom (Dwayne Johnson in Skyscraper, July 13). One big man against a Brobdingnagian megashark

(Jason Statham in The Meg, Aug. 20). One big Chris Pratt—“a sandwich away from fat,” said Rocket Racoon— rescuing dinos galore (Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, June 22). And a one-lunged hero of a pope taking on a planet of sinners (Wim Wenders’ documentary Pope Francis: A Man of His Word, May 18.) Most formidable of all, one mildmannered Pennsylvania TV host going big against childhood terrors (Won’t You Be My Neighbor, June 8). Try to make it through the previews for this Mr. Rogers documentary

without whimpering hopelessly. These examples of lone heroism are outnumbered by examples of characters coming together. Deadpool 2, with its band of weird brothers, from a Dadstached passer-by to the plump kid from Hunt for the Wilderpeople. Solo: A Star Wars Story (May 25) shows us the first time Han Solo (Alden Ehrenreich) swore he wasn’t getting involved with a bunch of rebels, before doing it anyway. In the all-female heist film Ocean’s 8, Sandra Bullock recruits a gang of jewel thieves. Incredibles 2 (June 15), is a follow-up to what’s been the only good Fantastic Four movie ever made, even if it didn’t star the Four, per se; Mission: Impossible—Fallout (July 27) has the usual gang of experts, boggling stunt work, pricey European locations, and a villainous Henry Cavill. And the mom-date movie Book Club (May 18) teams

Diane Keaton, Jane Fonda, Candice Bergen and Mary Steenburgen as a ladies’ group plumbing the the hidden depths of 50 Shades of Grey. Or, also for your mama, Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again (July 21). Here, indeed, we go again. Contrasting the remake SuperFly (June 11) and the sequel Ant Man and the Wasp (July 6), one notes that the former is not strictly speaking part of the Marvel Universe. Director X, an associate of Hype Williams, directs Trevor Jackson in a remake of Gordon Parks’ 1972 hit about the drug dealer looking to get out, changing the setting to Atlanta but hopefully keeping some of the movie’s salient feature, Curtis Mayfield’s soundtrack. The biopic Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far on Foot (late July) is Gus Van Sant’s study of a well-known Portland figure, the wheelchair-bound cartoonist John Callahan (Joaquin Phoenix). Inflicting

FEELGOOD SUMMER A new ‘Mr. Rogers’ documentary is one of many films aimed at bringing us all together this summer.

spinal breaks instead of suffering them is Johnny Knoxville in Action Point (June), which looks dire in a good way: the Lord of the Jackasses is an amusement park operator who decides to liven things up by adding life-threatening additions to the rides. Breath (summer) adapts a novel by one of the best writers about surfing, Australia’s Tim Winton. No surfing in On Chesil Beach (July), a version of Ian McEwan’s fiction about the unparalleled ecstasy of British sex; it observes two virgins (Saoirse Ronan, Billy Howle) on their 1962 honeymoon, neither with a clue of how it’s all done. More bad sex: The Miseducation of Cameron Post (summer) with Chloe Grace Moretz as a lesbian kid hauled through heterosexual reprogramming. Blindspotting (summer) is an exciting indie film, set in Oakland, about a parolee who witnesses a police officer executing a suspect. And psychedelic-spiked punch and house music leads to typical Gaspar Noe misanthropy and mayhem in Psyche, which just debuted at Cannes and should be ready for distribution. Noe revels like a bad-guy wrestler in his reputation as a director everyone

hates. He wouldn’t have lasted if his films weren’t so insanely vivid, if sensationally gross. May 18-25, the 50th anniversary of 2001: A Space Odyssey is commemorated in a screening of a new 70mm film print supervised by Christopher Nolan, well worth a San Francisco pilgrimage to the city’s Castro Theater. Two weeks later, the theater hosts one of the globe’s most important film fests, the San Francisco Silent Film Festival, May 30-June 3. Much of pre-sound cinema has disappeared, but rediscoveries continue to this date in collectors’ vaults and estate sales. This year’s finds include the last silent Sherlock Holmes film, a German The Hound of the Baskervilles, assumed lost; a Carl Dreyer comedy (uncharacteristic for such a maker of doom-laden films), and Buster Keaton in The Battling Butler. Revivals may be starting soon at 3Below in downtown San Jose, with the quote-along Princess Bride (May 17-19), and as always, the summer program at the Stanford Theatre in Palo Alto for silents, hits and rarities.

Multiple locations theboilingcrab.com Hailing originally from southeastern Texas, The Boiling Crab is what many consider to be the king of VietnameseCajun cuisine. They’ve got more crustaceans on the menu than you can shake a stick at—including king crab, lobster, shrimp, crawfish, snow crab, blue crab, Dungeness crab— and even oysters. While they are also known for their excruciating wait times (diners have been known to stick around for up to two hours for a chance to feast here), the real draw is their sauces. Try the whole shebang.

COUNTRY COOKIN’ Chowing down on a cauldron of crawfish is a fantastic way to spend the afternoon.

Ragin’ Cajuns

In the South, warmer weather doesn’t just mean BBQ—it’s also boilin’ season BY JOHN DYKE

S

URE, SUMMER IS a great time to head outdoors, fire up the barbecue and get grilling. But burgers and dogs aren’t the only foods meant to be cooked under the open sky. Instead of roasting terrestrial beasts over a charcoal pit, how about boiling some freshwater crustaceans with that open flame—or, better yet, allow an expert to do it for you? The traditional Southern crawfish

boil is having a moment in Silicon Valley, as a bevy of Cajun-style restaurants have sprung up in recent years. While neatniks might want to stay away, those who don’t mind getting a little dirty and enjoy eating with their hands will rejoice at this messy communal dining experience. Remember to pinch the tail and suck the head—and pass a good time, y’all.

Crawdaddy Multiple locations crawdaddy.co/home This locally owned chain serves up

some of the better seafood boils in town, but they are also a great spot to go grab some fried goodies. Their deep-fried oysters app is a “must-get,” and the off-the-menu crab fries are really turning heads; with its mound of real crab piled high over crispy fried potatoes and topped with a creamy and spicy remoulade sauce.

Poorboy’s is upping the ante by offering diners a bigger menu selection, which includes a lot of the usual suspects for seafood boils (e.g., crab, shrimp, crawfish). They also offer up a nice selection of po’ boy sandwiches, jambalaya, wings and craft beers on tap. For those looking to kickstart the party, you can order your brew in Vegas-style 88-ounce beer “bazookas.” Yeah, you read that right. … The soft-shell crab po’ boy with an order of bacon chowder fries is a strong combo that’s hard to pass up.

SJ Crawfish

The Kickin’ Crab

393 N Capitol Ave 408.618.8670

Multiple locations thekickincrab.com

One of the newer entrants to the game, as they’ve been open less than two years, this locally owned spot relies on friendly service, fresh seafood, tasty sauces and almost zero wait time compared to the other locations. They feature seven unique sauces available in four heat levels: mild, medium, spicy—and someone call the fire department. Their popular SJ Style sauce features a combination of their Cajun, tamarind and pineapple sauces mixed into one spicy, tangy and sweet combination.

With their third San Jose location newly opened on Blossom Hill Road, the Kickin’ Crab is making a play for South Bay Cajun supremacy. Known for their garlic noodles, nautical décor and a spicy sauce that really brings the heat, their Kickin’ Combo Deals are the go-to item here. Pro-tip: they allow diners to mix-and-match their choice of seafood for one fixed price.

HOT POT Cajun Bistro 7 fuses Vietnamese and traditional Louisiana bayou cooking for a spicy, brothy bite.

Boiling on the Bayou

C

RAWFISH BOILS ARE hardly a new concept. They are a longstanding Louisiana tradition. More recently, chefs have turned this informal backyard buffet into a menu item, and dozens of restaurants now offer up a menagerie of shellfish, sausage and veggies in a spicy broth.

The traditional way—and Louisianans love their tradition—is to boil the crawfish (aka mud bugs) in spice-filled water until ready to eat. The new Vietnamese-fusion method is to boil the crawfish and then add the spices and flavorings after the fact. While both methods are tasty, some would argue that the fusion method produces a better tasting product overall. The latest newcomer to utilize the latter fusion method is Cajun Bistro 7. The newish Paloma Plaza at the intersection of Silver Creek and Aborn roads is a very Viet-centric area and already employs more than a handful of Vietnamese restaurants—but none quite as unique as this. The menu is seafood oriented, as it runs the gamut from fried fish to oysters on the half-shell. Cajun Bistro 7 also offers a tasty off-the-menu seafood soup, bún riêu cua ($10), that many patrons might not be familiar with. It features a tomato-based broth, crab meatballs and vermicelli noodles. We settled on their chili bread ($5) app, one pound of their crawfish boil ($14 a pound) and added corn (75 cents each), potatoes (50 cents apiece) and Cajun sausage ($2.50 each). Bistro 7’s standard crawfish comes with a garlic butter sauce that diners can “pump up” with Cajun spices and request the heat level of their preference—mild, medium or spicy. First out was the chili bread, and it was a tasty concoction of garlic, butter, sriracha and dried shredded chicken. Pro tip: save the bread to dip into the scrumptious sauce covering the crawfish—but I’m getting ahead of myself. The only way to eat crawfish is to get your hands dirty; fortunately, they provide gloves at every table to help minimize the mess. One must crack the crayfish in half by twisting and pulling the tail from the head—and then get to sucking. After a few firm slurps, the sweet, juicy meat from the tail—and yes even the head—slides into your mouth and mixes with their amazing garlic butter sauce. While we did order the Cajun spices at a medium level, we both agreed it wasn’t super hot. However, despite the lack of heat, it was still a pretty damn tasty meal. While traditions can be a good thing, sometimes a simple tweak can reveal an improved way of doing things. At Cajun Bistro 7, the proof is in the slurping. —John Dyke

FAGGY AT 50 Thu, 8 pm, $15-42 Theatre on San Pedro Square, San Jose A multitude of words could describe the gay male experience at age 50, but playwright and actor Joe Gulla thinks it can be distilled down to just one: faggy. Gulla makes his Bay Area debut with his one-man monologue show, which describes in vivid, often cringeworthy, detail the trials and tribulations of growing up Italian, Catholic and gay in the Bronx—and in the ’80s, no less. From the lifetime subscription to Playboy his father bought him at 14, to an almostencounter with a prostitute that was offered to him as a birthday gift at 16, Gulla chronicles both the hilarity and emotion of his teenage years through poignant vignettes and passionate dialogue. Runs through Friday. (AS)

THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME Sat, 8pm, $39 Saratoga Civic Theater, Saratoga The South Bay Musical Theater’s musical adaptation of the story of Quasimodo incorporates elements of both the original Victor Hugo novel as well as the Disney animation that brought it to millions of American households. Featuring music by Grammy award-winning composer Alan Menken—who composed the scores to such ’90s Disney films as Beauty and the Beast, Pocahontas and Aladdin—and Stephen Schwartz, the Academy Award-winning lyricist for Wicked, the show also includes a full vocal choir, which underscores the musical’s Gothic, 15th-century theme.

TAIMANE

HEAR HER SONG

Sat, 6pm, $30 Cafe Stritch, San Jose

Sat, 7 pm, $10+ Hammer Theatre Center, San Jose

Some people think of the ukulele as a souvenir, says the Hawaiian born uke virtuoso Taimane. She doesn’t take offense. In fact, she likes it, as it sets audience expectations low. That’s when she comes in and blows minds. With 24 years’ experience on the diminutive “underdog of instruments,” Taimane is comfortable shredding through Bach, Led Zeppelin or her own material. She comes to town courtesy of San Jose Jazz and in support of her new album, Elemental—a suite of songs about earth, wind, fire, water, ether and the underworld—due out June 5. (NV)

An all-female cast of composers and songwriters perform 20 original songs inspired by and in honor of 20 remarkable women leaders, paying homage to the extraordinary achievements and courageous life choices made by women worldwide. A collaboration between the Women Like Us Foundation and Vital Voices, two female-run nonprofits focused on uplifting and supporting women in leadership positions globally, the project is led by Hamilton music director Kurt Crowley and features tributes to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, former first lady Michelle Obama, and Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor, among others.

BULLET POINTS ‘137 Bullets’ by artist Diane K. Bird considers the use of lethal force by American police.

Fire at Will

SJMQT ponders American gun culture with ‘Guns: Loaded Conversations’ BY AVI SALEM

T

HE LATEST EXHIBITION at the San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles begins at the box office. Upon purchase of a ticket, guests are not only offered a copy of their receipt, but prior to entering, they are also asked to pick out an empty bullet casing from a glass dish brimming with spent shells.

The weight of a bullet casing seemed insignificant at first, but by the end of viewing “Guns: Loaded

Conversations,” I found myself turning the shell over and over in my hand as if it were carrying the weight of the nearly 35,000 gun deaths that happen annually in the United States. And that’s exactly the point. While the gun debate takes center stage in the national arena, “Guns: Loaded Conversations” brings the discussion to the local level by asking viewers to consider what role guns should play in a society that’s continually challenged by their presence and the right to bear them. Presented as a collaboration between the Museum of Quilts and

Textiles and the Studio Art Quilt Associates—a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting the art quilt through education—the exhibition has been nearly two years in the making: Amy DiPlacido, curator of exhibitions at the San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles, was first inspired to bring a show about guns to the museum in 2016 shortly after what was then the deadliest mass shooting in America. “Right around the time when I became curator, the Pulse nightclub shooting happened, and almost instantaneously I knew I wanted to use my new platform to create a show that talked about guns in America,” she says. Comprising 33 textile works, the exhibit is inspired by and speaks to many facets of American gun culture—from its profoundly divisive influence in politics to its use as a tool for hunting and self-protection. Perhaps what’s most interesting is the common theme that each work carries, regardless of whether the

artist is pro- or anti-gun: horror, if not shock, surrounding the sheer number of deaths that guns contribute to, as well as America’s unwillingness to stop or slow down that violence. Bang, You’re Dead by artist Jacquie Gering is a reflection on young victims of gun violence in the Chicago public school system; The New American Crucifix by Nancy Lemke portrays two children being crucified on a cross while members of the NRA look on. Lemke, who considered herself anti-gun until she had firsthand experience with hunting, expresses confusion and anger that laws have not changed even after the Sandy Hook shooting. Perhaps the most moving piece of all is a hand-stitched replica of a 12 gauge shotgun by Anne Lemanski, which is the exact model of gun her father used to commit suicide. Representing a range of ideologies and views was DiPlacido’s intent when curating the show—as was leaving many questions unanswered, so that viewers could draw their own conclusions. “There are quilts that glorify and pay homage to the heritage of gun culture and hunting, but you can also find more neutral quilts where artists have just embroidered statistics,” she explains. “The artists are not always inserting their opinions into their pieces, but are simply speaking to the facts and letting the viewers decide.” One major highlight of the show is a secondary exhibit called “Generation of Change: A Movement, Not a Moment,” which features nine works by textile artists of color under 18 that address police brutality, racially motivated violence and school shootings. Created by students of the Social Justice Sewing Academy (SJSA), the works give agency to a group of young people who are not only disproportionately impacted by gun violence, but are almost always excluded from the debate. SJSA aims to provide a platform for students to explore political activism and make their voices heard in spaces otherwise inaccessible to them. “Rest in Power, Trayvon,” is an especially haunting portrait quilted by SJSA’s founder, Sara Trail. It depicts Trayvon Martin with his sweatshirt hood up, and even includes two hoodie laces that

AMERICAN RELIGION A cross made out of guns on one of the quilts on display at ‘Guns: Loaded Conversations.’ hang down from the traditional rectangular borders of the quilt. Martin’s face—created with a mix of recycled cotton, wool and batiks on bleached linen—conveys an incredible amount of emotion in its expression, staring at and even scrutinizing the onlooker. For DiPlacido, bringing this exhibition to San Jose is a chance to reflect on where museums are going in the future and how they can serve as a tool to further propel discussions that can ultimately lead to change. “Museums can be a very safe space where we can have these conversations and talk about subjects that make people uncomfortable— art has a power to describe feelings that you can’t exactly put into words,” she says. At the end of the exhibition, “Loaded Conversations” asks viewers to participate in the dialogue by casting a vote by bullet casing. Is gun legislation

strict enough as it is? Should civilians be free to own and operate any firearms they choose? Or should weapons be limited to the military and law enforcement? DiPlacido’s hope is that this symbolic vote is only the jumping off point for larger conversations about guns after visitors leave. “There are quilts in here that can make you laugh and cry at the same time, or if someone you know was a victim of gun violence, this is a place where you can mourn,” she explains. “I think it’s an opportunity for neighbors to meet each other, bond over a piece and potentially start a conversation with a stranger.”

SAY ANYTHING ‘Deadpool 2’ maxes out on fourth-wall breaking and absurdist mayhem.

meta Mutant

Sequel establishes Deadpool as the most cartoonish of all cartoon heroes BY RICHARD VON BUSACK

A

S IF IT were Honest Movie Trailers: The Movie, the second installment in the Deadpool franchise leavens the hit-making Marvel mix of fight scenes, flashbacks and explosions with dick jokes. Our protagonist, Wade (the ultra-bro, Ryan Reynolds), was a mercenary.

He was left with a complexion like a Costco cheese pizza after a forcible gene-scrambling experiment intended

to cure his stage 4 cancer. Now he’s the killer Deadpool: hooded, crosssworded, armed and ludicrous. His superpower is bouncing back after extreme dismemberment and preposterous mayhem—Deadpool is the most cartoony of cartoon heroes, the one who owes the most to Chuck Jones and Tex Avery. He clowns before a long-gone fourth wall. At one point he describes a clue as “a huge steaming bowl of foreshadowing.” The baseball goes so inside that there’s even a reference to the way cartoonist Rob

Liefeld drew figures with Dumpstersized chests and skinny footless legs like a Danish modern coffee table. Deadpool’s frenemy here is Cable (James Brolin), so thoroughly ripped from The Terminator that Deadpool even calls him “John Connor.” Strangely, Brolin's jaw is a little scarier without the CG chinaugmentation he had in Avengers: Infinity War. The highlight is a Vancouver super-truck rampage with Deadpool at the wheel, upside down and assforward. He’s helped by the movie’s standout Zazie Beetz as Domino, who has a new kind of superpower, supernatural luck: nothing ever falls on her head, even when it’s raining automobiles. Other highlights include the parody of the Skyfall titles, Julian Dennison of Hunt for the Wilderpeople as a kid mutant who may turn killer, the oil portrait of Karl Marx on the walls of the Xavier Mansion, and the longest

demise since Bugs Bunny staged one for Elmer. Deadpool 2 isn’t as overfilling as the first. And from a nerd standpoint, it had a little more respect for the chrome giant Colossus (Stefan Kapicic) than its predecessor. The downside is that Morena Baccarin, who gave the first Deadpool a strong romantic twist, is mushy here. She wants to be a mom and spends her time in the movie in a sort of heavenly purdah. When she says, “The baby factory is open for business,” the line goes beyond cute and into the realm of something written by someone a little unsure of how babies are made. (Me, I know how. I just don’t know why.)

PUSHING THE ENVELOPE Veteran jazz composer, saxophonist and flautist Henry Threadgill knows how to push forward and pull back.

Playing By Ear

Jazz great Henry Threadgill on accessibility, artistry and defying expectations BY BILL KOPP

H

ENRY THREADGILL HAS a well-deserved reputation as a jazz innovator. Working with unusual ensembles that include instrumental combinations not often thought of in a jazz context, Threadgill has made a series of boundary-pushing albums beginning in the 1970s and continuing today. For his efforts, the composer, saxophonist and flutist has earned many accolades and awards, including the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for music.

His latest project is a live collaboration with pianist Vijay Iyer and drummer Dafnis Prieto. And while the trio is considerably less experimental than some of Threadgill’s previous endeavors, he doesn’t view it as a departure. That’s because the concept of accessibility isn’t something he considers when composing music. It’s not important whether a work is bleeding-edge or traditional; true art reveals new qualities on each exposure. “You could look at something that was considered revolutionary in the past, like Stravinsky’s ‘Petrushka,’” he says. “It was considered dissonant and outrageous at one time, but no longer.” While Threadgill doesn’t subscribe

to the idea that the audience is an active participant in a performance, he believes that having an audience is essential. “I’m playing music for people,” he says. “If there’s no audience, then it’s just a rehearsal.” And he notes that by its nature, studio recording—which generally doesn’t have an audience present—is more challenging. For Threadgill, the presence of listeners creates “this other energy that moves and adds to the process.” Without an audience, he says, the performance can be “flat.” Spontaneity plays a role as well. Sometimes Threadgill creates detailed arrangements for his works, sketching out the specifics of what each musician should do. But he says that during a performance, “I can hear something that I want one of the people to do, to change things right there on the spot.” He says that his emphasis is on making music. “What you write is one thing,” he explains. “That is not necessarily music. It looks like music.” But it’s not really music until it’s played. The recipient of numerous grants and commissions, Threadgill

understands the challenges facing composers. While he has never considered crowdfunding to finance his work, he understands why many musicians are making use of platforms like Kickstarter. “It’s a different time now,” he says, “so young artists have to turn to other methods” of financing. And he worries that the high cost of living in major metropolitan areas will force an exodus of creative people moving to smaller cities, or even leaving the U.S. altogether. For his part, the New York City-based composer remains committed to living and working in America. At age 46, fellow New Yorker Vijay Iyer is nearly three decades Threadgill’s junior, but he too has established himself among the foremost jazz musicians working today. A 2013 MacArthur Fellow (the so-called “genius grant”), Iyer is well-known as both a daring improviser and effective collaborator. He first covered a knotty 1993 Threadgill composition, “Little Pocket Size Demons,” on his 2011 album Accelerando. And he had long expressed a desire to work with Threadgill. Though his musical foundation is quite different, 43-year-old Cuban percussionist Dafnis Prieto has a background remarkably similar to Iyer’s. He, too, won a MacArthur Fellowship (in 2011), and has been nominated twice for Grammy Awards. When Prieto first visited New York, he made it clear that he wanted to work with Threadgill as well. Despite the three musicians’ grounding in improvisational music, Threadgill says the trio carefully prepares for its run of live dates. “We’ve been doing this for a little while now,” Threadgill says, “but we’ve got to rehearse. We’d never put a tour together without rehearsing.” All the same, he cautions against having preconceived notions of what his trio might do on stage. “I hope people don’t have any expectations,” Threadgill says. “If you have expectations, then you can be disappointed. And why start out with the possibility of disappointment? Take that off right away, and just leave the door open to be thrilled.”

FREE WILL ASTROLOGY assessment of the astrological omens, your duty right now is to be a brave observer, fair-minded intermediary and honest storyteller. Your people need you to help them do the right thing. They require your influence in order to make good decisions. So if you encounter lazy communication, dispel it with your clear and concise speech. If you find that foggy thinking has started to infect important discussions, inject your clear and concise insights.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): A chemist named Marcellus Gilmore Edson got a patent on peanut butter in 1894. A businessman named George Bayle started selling peanut butter as a snack in 1894. In 1901, a genius named Julia David Chandler published the first recipe for a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. In 1922, another pioneer came up with a new process for producing peanut butter that made it taste better and last longer. In 1928, two trailblazers invented loaves of sliced bread, setting the stage for the ascension of the peanut butter and jelly sandwich to its full glory. According to my analysis, Taurus, you're partway through your own process of generating a very practical marvel. I suspect you're now at a phase equivalent to Julia David Chandler's original recipe. Onward! Keep going! GEMINI (May 21-June 20): One of the most popular brands of candy in North America is Milk Duds. They're irregularly shaped globs of chocolate caramel. When they were first invented in 1926, the manufacturer's plan was to make them perfect little spheres. But with the rather primitive technology available at that time, this proved impossible. The finished products were blobs, not globes. They tasted good, though. Workers jokingly suggested that the new confection's name include "dud," a word meaning "failure" or "flop." Having sold well now for more than 90 years, Milk Duds have proved that success doesn't necessarily require perfection. Who knows? Maybe their dud-ness has been an essential part of their charm. I suspect there's a metaphorical version of Milk Duds in your future, Gemini. CANCER (June 21-July 22): In my vision of your

life in the coming weeks, you're hunting for the intimate power that you lost a while back. After many twists and trials, you find it almost by accident in a seemingly unimportant location, a place you have paid little attention to for a long time. When you recognize it, and realize you can reclaim it, your demeanor transforms. Your eyes brighten, your skin glows, your body language galvanizes. A vivid hope arises in your imagination: how to make that oncelost, now-rediscovered power come alive again and be of use to you in the present time.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): The etymological dictionary

says that the English slang word "cool" meant "calmly audacious" as far back as 1825. The term "groovy" was first used by jazz musicians in the 1930s to signify "performing well without grandstanding." "Hip," which was originally "hep," was also popularized by the jazz community. It meant, "informed, aware, up-to-date." I'm bringing these words to your attention because I regard them as your words of power in the coming weeks. You can be and should be as hip, cool, and groovy as you have been in a long time.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): I hope you will seek out

influences that give you grinning power over your worries. I hope you'll be daring enough to risk a breakthrough in service to your most demanding dream. I hope you will make an effort to understand yourself as your best teacher might understand you. I hope you will find out how to summon more faith in yourself—a faith not rooted in lazy wishes but in a rigorous selfassessment. Now here's my prediction: You will fulfill at least one of my hopes, and probably more.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): The Polish pianist Ignacy Jan Paderewski once performed for England's Queen Victoria. Since she possessed that bygone era's equivalent of a backstage pass, she was able to converse with him after the show. "You're a genius," she told him, having been impressed with his artistry. "Perhaps, Your Majesty," Paderewski said. "But before that I was a drudge." He meant that he had labored long and hard before reaching the mastery the queen attributed to him. According to my analysis of the

astrological omens, you Libras are currently in an extended "drudge" phase of your own. That's a good thing! Take maximum advantage of this opportunity to slowly and surely improve your skills.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): The ancient Greek poet

Simonides was among the first of his profession to charge a fee for his services. He made money by composing verses on demand. On one occasion, he was asked to write a stirring tribute to the victor of a mule race. He declined, declaring that his sensibilities were too fine to create art for such a vulgar activity. In response, his potential patron dramatically boosted the proposed price. Soon thereafter, Simonides produced a rousing ode that included the phrase "wind-swift steeds." I offer the poet as a role model for you in the coming weeks, Scorpio. Be more flexible than usual about what you'll do to get the reward you'd like.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Here's the operative

metaphor for you these days: You're like a painter who has had a vision of an interesting work of art you could create—but who lacks some of the paint colors you would require to actualize this art. You may also need new types of brushes you haven't used before. So here's how I suggest you proceed: Be aggressive in tracking down the missing ingredients or tools that will enable you to accomplish your as-yet imaginary masterpiece.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Useful revelations

and provocative epiphanies are headed your way. But they probably won't arrive sheathed in sweetness and light, accompanied by tinkling swells of celestial music. It's more likely they'll come barging in with a clatter, bringing bristly marvels and rough hope. In a related matter: At least one breakthrough is in your imminent future. But this blessing is more likely to resemble a wrestle in the mud than a dance on a mountaintop. None of this should be a problem, however! I suggest you enjoy the rugged but interesting fun.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): One of the saddest

aspects of our lives as humans is the disparity between love and romance. Real love is hard work. It's unselfish, unwavering, and rooted in generous empathy. Romance, on the other hand, tends to be capricious and inconstant, often dependent on the fluctuations of mood and chemistry. Is there anything you could do about this crazy-making problem, Aquarius? Like could you maybe arrange for your romantic experiences to be more thoroughly suffused with the primal power of unconditional love? I think this is a realistic request, especially in the coming weeks. You will have exceptional potential to bring more compassion and spiritual affection into your practice of intimacy.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): In accordance with astrological omens, I invite you to dream up new rituals. The traditional observances and ceremonies bequeathed to you by your family and culture may satisfy your need for comfort and nostalgia, but not your need for renewal and reinvention. Imagine celebrating homemade rites of passage designed not for who you once were but for the new person you've become. You may be delighted to discover how much power they provide you to shape your life's long-term cycles. Ready to conjure up a new ritual right now? Take a piece of paper and write down two fears that inhibit your drive to create a totally interesting kind of success for yourself. Then burn that paper and those fears in the kitchen sink while chanting "I am a swashbuckling incinerator of fears!" Homework: Do something that you will remember with pride and passion until the end of your days. Testify at Freewillastrology.com.

POT SHOTS

POT FOR PERIODS Local collectives are marketing marijuana to treat menstrual pain.

Sweet Relief

ITH LEGAL POT taking off at neck-breaking speed, a myriad of inventive products have hit the market as “cannasumer” demand grows and diversifies. And with even more women now reporting using marijuana than before, according to a May 2017 Forbes article, local dispensaries are selling items that target period pain alongside the usual THCinfused cookies, brownies and other snacks. Female users know that a little relief can help a lot when their monthly period rolls around. Even one of history’s most prim and proper figures, Queen Victoria, reportedly rode out her crimson wave with the soothing effects of cannabis, as recommended by her private doctor (possibly making her one of the world’s oldest-known medical marijuana patients). But instead of sparking up, she might’ve used a tincture or other topical remedy like the many products available at every pot club in San Jose. Some best-sellers available at more than half of the city’s 16 registered collectives include balms, tinctures, bath soaks, body oils, patches and capsules from the popular Papa and Barkley line. Their Releaf transdermal cannabis patch has a slow-release formula that promises 12 hours of relief. The patch could be used directly on a cramping stomach while their balms, oils and soaks could be used similarly for more subtle pain management. Women who want to ingest their medicine but without empty calories from sugary pot treats can try P&B’s vegan capsules or tinctures, which are taken with food, under the tongue, swallowed, or added in a smoothie for a different kind of green boost. But chocolate is a period kit staple for many women and those wanting something extra with their fix can dive into a chocolate bar or candies from Kiva. The Santa Cruz company’s dark and milk chocolate confections are sold in a variety of flavors at CannaCulture Collective, while the company Bhang peddles peppermint ice chocolate and caramel chocolate bars, each containing 100mg of THC or soothing CBD, at Elemental Wellness. One of the strongest contenders for Midol replacement are Foria suppositories, aka “marijuana tampons.” The name is somewhat misleading because they don’t absorb any blood (and are also much more expensive than any box of Tampax—singles are $15 each at Airfield Supply and four-packs go for $53 at Purple Lotus, not including tax) but, yes, it does go inside your vajayjay, where it delivers 60mg of THC and 10mg of CBD along with the conditioning effects of organic cocoa butter. It can even be used at the same time as a regular tampon, according to Foria’s website, since the cocoa butter melts with your body temperature. Online consumer reviews therefore suggest using it before bed to avoid any leakage from standing up, and Foria also recommends using a pantyliner just in case.—Julia Baum
