MEETING ANDY JACOBS JR.

first met Andy Jacobs in Washington, D.C. I was working for the Indiana Humanities Council and, once a year, I traveled to the capital city and met with members of Indiana’s congressional delegation. My job was to remind them about the work IHC was doing around the state with the federal funds we received. You always hoped for face-to-face meetings with our elected representatives. But, more often than not, these appointments took place in work rooms with junior staff members who nodded politely, distractedly accepted whatever materials I was lugging around, and tried to say something harmless about Indiana — a place many of them knew almost nothing about. Andy Jacobs was different. To begin with, he was most definitely present. Jacobs was a tall man, aware, I think, of the physical impression he made — he strode into a room like Gary Cooper. He also had an old-fashioned sense of courtesy. If he made a date, he kept it. Jacobs also loved the humanities. He savored history and literature; reveled in a good story, especially if it had a juicy punchline. And so, late one afternoon, I found myself sitting in Jacobs’ office as the shadows lengthened on what had clearly been a busy day. He was on the fly, he told me, due for a vote on the House floor that could come at any time. But he wanted to talk and he invited me to tag along as he took care of some unfinished business. Before I knew it, I was sitting beside him on a bench in the House cloakroom. Fellow Representatives passed through the tiny space that seemed weirdly like a confessional. Jacobs started leafing through the materials I’d handed him. As he did, he mused about Lincoln, I think he quoted Yeats. He listened to what I had to say. Then someone ducked a head through a narrow doorway and indicated the Congressman was needed on the House Floor. Jacobs stood, we shook hands, and he was gone. I know I’m not the only one with a

story like this about Andy Jacobs. That’s because life, for Jacobs, was about making contact. It was personal. Your word mattered, it was a kind of action, inseparable from what you did. Place was also part of Jacobs’ code. Washington, for him, was never a final destination. It was where he went in order to represent that part of Indianapolis where he had grown up and come of age. Jacobs’ understanding of the world, while tempered, textured and enriched by a deep appreciation for letters and the arts, seemed ultimately based on his identification with what he took to be the best of where he was from — his Indianapolis, his Indiana. This made him a man of principle, not politics. He wore his integrity so effortlessly, I suspect many of us took him for granted. Now that he’s gone, I imagine we’ll miss him more than we may ever realize. n

B Y RE B E C C A T O WNSE ND RTOW N SEN D@N U VO . N ET

ndy Jacobs Jr. — in addition to being a great Hoosier writer — was a vegetarian. Not for any particular health reason, just because he loved animals and didn’t want to eat them. At my first meeting with Andy, I handed him a chicken sandwich. It happened a few weeks after I returned to Indiana in the summer of 2011 to take the NUVO news editor job. Overseeing Andy’s weekly “Thought Bite” item would be part of my editorial duties, so Jim Poyser, my managing editor at the time, advised that it would be a good idea to pay him a visit. Andy informed me a war wound had pretty much bedridden him, so we agreed I’d pick up a couple of sandwiches and join him bedside. Who knew veggie brisket tasted so much like chicken? I was mowing down on my sandwich, completely oblivious to the fact I was eating the meatless cuisine. About a quarter through his sandwich Andy says, “I think this is chicken.” Indeed, he was right. “Holy moly,” I thought. “This guy is gonna hate me or have me fired for defiling him with the flesh of an innocent animal.” Obviously, I didn’t know Andy yet. He laughed it off and regaled me with hours of stories; he showed me the papers he picked out of the trash of a fellow member of Congress that had been sitting in the hall of one the office buildings — a stack of stationery from the House Un-American Activities Committee. He gave me The 1600 Killers: A Wake-Up Call for Congress. [Later I’d also be the happy recipient of Slander and Sweet Judgment: The Memoir of an Indiana Congressman and also The Powell Affair: Freedom Minus One. A sample of his title page signing, “For my wiser (than I’d anticipated) editor, Rebecca. Andy”] As I was leaving that first day, his wife, Kim, smiled and said, “Thanks for getting him to eat some protein.” That was my introduction to two of the most exceptional and gracious people I’ve ever met. That day I also met Brutus, the last of a legion of Great Danes that kept watch over Andy and his family, who thoroughly sniffed out all intruders into his territory. Andy’s Dane line started with C-Five (see picture), who Jacobs wrote in Slander “grew like a government contract,” particularly Lockheed’s C-5 Galaxy airship, a famous federal budget-busting project. I began dropping by to hang out and watch movies. He loved the golden age of cinema and still warmed at the thought of the famous actor

PHOTOS COURTESY OF THE JACOBS FAMILY

Andy Jacobs Jr. penned tens of thousands of letters, three books and several landmark legislative efforts during his 30 years in Congress.

Gregory Peck, who in the ‘81-’82 primary season recorded a campaign endorsement for him: “Andy Jacobs, the congressman who never took the full Congressional salary or used the franking system for thinly veiled political mail, the congressman with the second-lowest office expenses in the country, may never be a congressman’s congressman, but he is the people’s congressman. And that’s what counts.” Who needs the PACs when you have Gregory Peck? Still, Andy was the only Indiana congressman in the 20th century to be elected by colleagues to the U.S. House Ways and Means Committee — part of a select few to control the purse strings of the federal government. So despite his idiosyncrasies, one could argue that he grew to be the people’s congressman and a congressman’s congressman. (Though I can imagine Andy, an avid grammarian, offering a correction on the wording of the latter distinction: a congressperson’s congressman.) Having had more than one experience with political “handlers” who take seemingly sadistic pleasures in their gatekeeping duties with dismissive and rude words as they block journalists from requested access to elected officials, sitting for hours unsupervised with a man as accomplished as Andy was surreal. The feeling of dumbstruck awe never left me, though I came to

feel as comfortable around Andy and Kim as I did my own family, and that was cemented when we became neighbors. Before my family had even fully unpacked, Andy’s son Steven and one of his friends were at the gate with a load of firewood for us. Just another one of the random acts of kindness of which legions of people recalled as word of his death spread. “Auntie Karen,” a Jacobs’ family friend who returned to Indy from California to support them through the grieving, remembered how, without her knowledge, Andy jumped straight off an airplane from D.C. and went to her back yard to chop and stack wood after one of her neighbors began complaining about a downed tree that had fallen in Karen’s yard during a tornado. “That’s your congressman at work,” Karen later remarked to the complainant. Sometimes I carried my carte blanche access with the Jacobs to the extreme. Like the time when, after a few glasses of wine or some such other dangerous seductress, I decided to swing by the Jacobs’ to implore Andy to make an exception to his daily appointment with the cable news or the old movies we could recite by heart. [He highly commended Gentlemen’s Agreement, Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins and Trading Places, by the way.] It was the spring of 2012 and NUVO was planning a massive party at City


ANDY JACOBS JR. FEBRUARY 24, 1932 - DECEMBER 28, 2013 Market to celebrate its acquisition and re-launch of Indiana Living Green. Watching a true Hoosier legend lay at home made me feel sad that more people would not have the opportunity to know him, to say a million more times, “Thank you, sir, for caring about us and working your darndest for a kinder, gentler civilization.” Several such people interested in meeting him and/or giving him love would be attending the ILG party — interactions I felt certain he’d enjoy. “Please get out of bed and come Downtown, Andy,” I said with such emotion that I think I made Kim (who remembers the days when he not only got out of bed, but took her to White House Christmas parties) cry. He said something to the effect of, “Ms. Townsend, have you been drinking?” “Yes, sir,” I admitted, probably wondering whether I’d finally pushed him past the proverbial line. But no, he chatted with me for a while longer and we said, “Good night.” Andy stayed in bed the next evening, which I — upon encountering the catacomb tours, beer lines and pulsing beats of the dance floor at the ILG party as it played out — realized was the best decision for him. Like the good Marine and frugal conservationist that he was, Andy rationed the physical strength he had remaining in his final year and a half. He did, in fact, get out of bed when the time was right. In a remarkable style, he arrived at what qualifies to me as one of the absolute best days to be a Hoosier I’ve ever experienced: Armistice Day 2012 at the Indiana War Memorial, exploring war and peace in honor of Kurt Vonnegut. So many strands of Indiana culture were weaving together in the building that day that the energy was magical. Author Dark Rain Thom, the Water Panther Clan Mother of the East of the River Shawnee of Ohio was there, accompanied by her husband, literary giant James Alexander Thom (whose remembrance of Andy we are honored to publish in this issue). NPR’s Steve Inskeep, a Carmel native, was home to emcee. Dan Wakefield, Mark Vonnegut, Julia Whitehead. … And Andy. Glowing. He was one of the last to speak on that amazing day. “America: Where she is right, glory; where she is wrong, courage,” he said. He shared two war stories to illustrate one underlying point: “Even in the savagery of war, there can be humanity.” In short, the karma of a C-ration gifted to an emaciated Chinese POW sliding down Korean Hill 902 in the custody of Jacobs’ men during the Korean War paid dividends when Chinese gunners offered a free pass to Jacobs and fellow soldiers carrying a litter with their dead commander out of a battle zone just a few weeks later. Jacobs concluded his presentation with a “Thought Bite.” He said, “The Marine Corps is not what it used to be. In fact, it never was.” One might imagine a book could be written about the man who led an overnight debate at the U.S. Capitol in protest of the Vietnam War …

Great Dane C-Five was a favorite of the Capitol press corps.

and ultimately helped extract the U.S. from not just an unwinnable situation — but a quagmire in which so much had been unnecessarily lost. Indeed, Andy wrote that book with The 1600 Killers. In it he taught us the term “war wimp,” his term for a person with no military service who votes to send others to war. His military service, his commitment to listening and encouragement, his lack of fear and his Great Dane all helped justify another surreal Townsend invasion of his bedside. In November of 2011, I picked up a veteran on the side of North Meridian Street. Ron Zaleski was walking across the country carrying a placard that read “18 vets a day commit suicide.” After interviewing him in my car, and picking up a pizza to split with him for lunch, I thought, “I’ve got to take this guy to Andy.” So in we walk to his bedroom. I introduced the men. They talked. Andy gave Ron a copy of The 1600 Killers. The picture I always ran with his “Thought Bites” was a candid shot taken as he signed that book for Zaleski, propped up on his Marines’ Semper Fi pillow case. No

makeup, special lighting, hair adjustments. A bag of Funyuns at the ready off to his side. That Armistice Day when Andy went to the Indiana War Memorial, one of the “Vets Reclaim Armistice Day” speakers, Dr. Jonathan Shay, author of Achilles in Vietnam and Odysseus in America, said, “Recovery always happens in community ... [where] people who’ve been in war know it’s safe to tell their stories,” explaining that the recipient of the vet’s story must hear, believe and remember. “Then the person who heard [must] retell the veteran’s story to the point where the vet can say somebody listened, somebody cared.” Andy listened. Andy cared. My favorite kind of Christian — the type more apt to serve his fellow humans with kindness than condemn lifestyle choices. He rarified the air — made people believe they were worthy of great accomplishments. He chose his battles, had faith he was fighting for truth, justice, freedom and the American way (arguing against popular opinion and in favor of a balanced budget amendment way before it became tea party chic, for example). It’s not always easy to take the path less traveled, but worth the effort for the character it builds. I received the news that Andy’s time on this earth was fleeting in an email from Kim, informing me that he might miss some deadlines as he was in hospice care and that doctors said the end was near. I felt like I was on another planet. In reality I kind of was — South Florida. It took me a bit to work up the courage to respond. I excused myself after breakfast with my family and stepped outside the little Cuban diner on the Overseas Highway in Key Largo and called. Kim laid it out for me: Andy was indeed about to check out from his earthly body. He wasn’t in pain. He was at home, surrounded by family. I was NOT to travel back. I should enjoy time with my family and post lots of pictures to Facebook. Someone had said something to her about being extraordinary — about how extraordinary people stood on the shoulders of people who laid out the path before them. She said he’d laid a mantle on my shoulders (among so many others) that must never be forgotten. Typical chip off the Jacobs’ block, encouraging me even as I was attempting to comfort and support her. I asked if I could talk to him. A few minutes later, she called back and connected us. I could hear her asking him if he could muster the strength to talk to me. The ocean breeze was blowing, I was quaking with emotion and tears running down my face, his voice was raspy. I could not understand what he was saying. Kim translated — though to be honest I couldn’t hear her all that well at that point either. Something about my bright, shining face and not liking the word muster. “Andy, I’m in Florida right now, but I am with you in spirit,” I said. “I love you so much. Thank you, thank you, thank you so much for everything.” Rest in peace, just as you asked humankind to consider doing. n

FAREWELL ANDY JACOBS JR. Indiana says goodbye with a service at the Statehouse

O

n January 3, 2014, Andy Jacobs Jr., a U.S. Congressman who served the people of Indiana for 30 years, was given an honor few Hoosiers are accorded: lying in state in the Indiana Statehouse. In his remarks at the service honoring the late representative (who died at 81 on Dec. 28, 2013), Gov. Mike Pence noted it’s an accolade the man now shares with the likes of President Benjamin Harrison, James Whitcomb Riley and Julia Carson. Several hundred of Jacobs’ fellow Hoosiers — the people he represented and those who both assisted and opposed Jacobs in his efforts — assembled to bid farewell. Statehouse staff scrambled to find chairs as the crowd rolled in from a bone-chilling morning, a testament to the man Pence referred to as “difficult to debate and impossible to dislike.” The governor noted that it was entirely fitting that a man like Jacobs be honored in “the house of the people.” Pence ended his remarks by kneeling in front of Kim Hood Jacobs, Jacobs’ widow, and presenting her with an Indiana state flag. The smell of fresh flowers was pervasive, wafting from the large bouquets to the left of Jacobs’ flagdraped casket. To the right were two pictures of Jacobs from his days serving in the U.S. Congress. The casket and the lectern behind sat between two of the marble statues that encircle the rotunda, the figures labeled “Justice” and “Liberty.” Pence spoke immediately after a musical prologue, a rendition of the “The Impossible Dream” from gospel singer Keith Hayes that boomed across the polished stone of the interior. Pence’s words were followed with remarks from Jacobs’ sons, Steven and Andrew. Both of his boys cemented Jacobs’ legacy as an incredibly frugal man, a trait that extended

not only to Jacobs’ political philosophy but to his personal life, too. Andrew recalled that the U.S. Capitol police had once notified the Jacobs that “some bum” had parked in the Congressman’s space. They hadn’t surmised the guy in the paint-spattered Wal-Mart slacks driving the burgundy ’79 heap-of-an-Olds was the representative for Indiana’s 10th District. Harkening Jacobs’ reputation as a “fiscal hawk,” someone always on the lookout for ways to cut waste, Pence recalled how the congressman had famously sent back a color TV that had been delivered to the congressman’s office as a perk of the gig. “I know of no good reason for viewing [then House Speaker] Tip O’Neill in living color,” said Jacobs. The commitment to public service was something that Jacobs always carried with him as well: Jacobs carried hedge clippers in his trunk, ready to

clear overgrowth from an obscured road sign — a chore that fell to the kids on a fairly regular basis. Friends and colleagues all recalled Jacobs’ unwillingness to engage in the kind of campaigning that modern voters are all-too-familiar with: Rep. André Carson said that Jacobs wasn’t a man who “ever wanted his name on the door. He never took money from a political action committee, and he never attacked an opponent.” Carson and others noted that Jacobs was the quintessential man of his era, a time when congresspeople could engage in utterly contentious debates of the floors of both houses, then set aside partisan squabbling to tip a glass together. The subtext was evident: Those after-hours get-togethers allowed lawmakers to see one another in more than a single dimension.

FAREWELL , FROM PAGE 08 you’re friends with the man whose village you’re about to burn. “He was a man who said ‘It doesn’t have to be this way.’ That was his gift,” said Carson. As a mentor, Jacobs was unparalleled, according to Carson. If young André spent the night at Jacobs’ place — Carson referred to Jacobs as a “second father” — the next morning’s entertainment consisted of a careful reading of the morning papers. “Then he’d quiz me: ‘What do you think of this Iran-Contra scandal?’ C’mon, I’m just a kid!” Not to say that Jacobs wasn’t still a politician, mind you. Carson, who referred to Jacobs in his remarks as “my Obi-Wan Kenobi,” recalled that Jacobs had called Carson to express his disapproval at one of Carson’s campaign spots. Carson had aired an attack ad that denigrated his opponent during an exceptionally tough Congressional race. Jacobs made Carson promise never to air that type of ad again, but “[Jacobs] said, ‘I’ll give you a pass this time — ‘cause that other guy is such a jerk.’” Jim Beatty, Jacobs’ longtime campaign manager, noted Jacobs’ fearlessness as a politician. “He experienced terror and fear in Korea — never here, never in politics,” Beatty said. More than just a man who turned down congressional pay raises, Jacobs was a man who consistently spoke out against America’s military adventurism, beginning with his opposition to the war in Vietnam. Beatty said that Jacobs had the ability to “see around corners,” and saw the potential quagmire that lay ahead as U.S. forces began to assemble in Southeast Asia. The self-described “parsimonious progressive” was also an ardent supporter of civil rights. Before “Taps” was sounded by a Marine Corps bugler, before “The Marine’s Hymn” was played by a piper on the balcony above his casket, Carson noted that Jacobs’ last NUVO “Thought Bite” summed up the man best: “If there’s one thing I hate, it’s hate.” n Editor’s note: Donations are being accepted to The Andy Jacobs Scholarship Fund, IUPUI, P.O.

ANDY JACOBS JR. FEBRUARY 24, 1932 - DECEMBER 28, 2013

REP JACOBS’ RANDOM ACTS OF KINDNESS

C

E D WE NC K EW EN CK@ N U VO . N ET

ivility. Empathy. Integrity. Ask anyone who knew the man, and those are the words that come to mind when they’re remembering former Congressman Andy Jacobs Jr., who died on Dec. 28, 2013. “When Ryan White visited D.C., Andy’s was the only office open to Ryan,” said Steve Barnett, a longtime Jacobs staffer. “He took him around, they went to the cafeteria, ate lunch. He wasn’t an AIDS patient to Andy, he was just a good Hoosier kid.” Jacobs’ office was open to anyone, in fact: If a Hoosier had a problem, they could call Jacobs. “It was a philosophy that he imparted to all the staffers as well,” Barnett recalled. “We have had a woman call the office because she had a squirrel stuck in her mailbox. I don’t remember who took care of that one, but I’m sure we solved it.” Gary Taylor was a close friend of Jacobs’ (and “campaign manger — to the extent you could be a campaign manger for Andy”), and stayed with Andy and his family in the hospital during a brief visit to manage his pain before they took him home for his final days. Even as he approached the end of his life, Jacobs was attuned to the needs of others. “I was there while Andy took a call to comfort an elderly woman whose son the fire chief had just fallen off his ladder,” Taylor said. Jim Seidensticker was Andy Jacobs Jr.’s legal counsel for over 30 years. As Seidensticker recalls, it was a pretty easy job: “Even if something didn’t look quite kosher, Andy wouldn’t have anything to do with it.” There was one exception, though. Al Lowenstein, an anti-war member of Congress, was being physically bullied by another Congressman during debates over the war in Vietnam. Jacobs had seen enough, and approached the bully, telling him he ought to pick on someone his own size.

Andy Jacobs, at home in November 2011, signs his book 1600 Killers for the “barefoot vet” Ron Zaleski, in town to raise awareness about veterans’ suicide.

“Like you?” responded the bully. “Yeah, like me,” Jacobs said. “Tell you what — let’s go down in the well of the House and settle this.” The Hoosier congressman, better known as a pacifist, was challenging another politician to a fistfight — in the very chambers of the U.S. House of Representatives. Seidensticker intervened. “I showed Andy the federal statute from the 1840s that prohibited members of Congress from dueling.” Picking a fight wasn’t really Jacobs’ style. Sticking up for the little guy was. Seidensticker recalls a moment the two were driving in Andy’s car. They were rear-ended by another vehicle, and the driver emerged, distraught — he told Jacobs he had no insurance. The man needed his car for work and was certain reporting the accident would cost him his ride. The man offered to pay Jacobs fifty bucks a week until Jacobs’ car was fixed. Jacobs turned the offer down. “It’s in the past. Forget about it.” Seidensticker laughs. “I don’t think I would’ve made that deal. Andy ate $300 in repairs.”

Jacobs’ empathy colored not just his personal life, but it helped shape his ideas regarding policy. In 1962, Jacobs unsuccessfully ran against a rabid anti-communist by the name of Donald Bruce. During a radio debate, Bruce admonished Jacobs — Bruce wanted to break relations with the Soviet Union and invade Cuba, and he was perturbed by the Democrats’ take on any attempt to overthrow the Castro regime. “I want you to assure our listening audience that an invasion of Cuba wouldn’t necessarily lead to total war,” Bruce told Jacobs, refuting the notion that the Soviets might respond to such an invasion by attacking the U.S. — perhaps even with a nuclear strike. “I can assure our listening audience of one thing,” Jacobs responded. “For the Marines on that beach, it will sure as hell be ‘total war.’” Barnett remembered an encounter in the late ‘60s, when Jacobs was approached by a Hoosier who called himself “a dead man.” The IRS was exercising its full power at that time, taking a full garnishment of the man’s wages to pay a tax debt. Jacobs was mortified. When he became a member of the House Committee on Ways and Means, he ensured that the IRS was no longer able to appropriate a citizen’s entire paycheck. The story of the “dead man” stunned his colleagues. “He listened, then he actually did something,” Barnett said. “He’d never just refer someone to another office.” As example, as teacher, as mentor, Jacobs affected all who knew him. One of the lessons that Jacobs taught Barnett was particularly tough. “I ran for city council and lost,” Barnett recalled. “I called my opponent the next day and congratulated him — just like Andy had taught me. “Civility in politics. We can fight tooth and nail, but we’re all Americans, all Hoosiers. “When we’re off the floor, let’s not be bitter about it.” n

REVIEW Matisse, Life in Color: Masterworks from the Baltimore Museum of Art e Matisse: Life in Color, curated by the Indianapolis Museum of Art’s Rebecca Long, includes more than a hundred works borrowed from the Baltimore Museum of Art’s extensive Matisse collection. Matisse was certainly aware of the rich physicality of oil paints. And through its abundant assortment of prints and sculptures — often sharing the same subjects across the 2D/3D divide — the show appropriately makes the case for his mastery of many different media. The exhibition is divided by subject; under “Nudes,” you see dozens of photographs charting the evolution of the iconic painting “Large Reclining Nude” (a.k.a The Pink Nude), from realistic to abstract treatments. And in the same room, you see Matisse’s bronze sculpture “The Serf.” Matisse made the piece using the same well-endowed nude male model employed by Rodin, which speaks to the size of Matisse’s ambition. My favorite painting here is a landscape. In “Large Cliff with Fish,” you see the shoreline jutting in elliptically from the right. Compositionally, this is mind-blowing when you think about it. Matisse’s landscapes, less renowned than other facets of his work, are a particularly welcome part of this exhibition. What comes across most of all in this exhibit is Matisse’s restless exploration of many artistic mediums. So it seems appropriate is that this exhibition employs the iPad as a canvas as well as a teaching tool. That is to say, in the Inspired by Matisse contest you can try to out-Matisse Matisse by drawing something on an iPad. — DAN GROSSMAN Indianapolis Museum of Art, through Jan. 12, imamuseum.org for prices and times

This week: Skeleton centurions, dragons, beasties, Oregon Trail references (Cletus has cholera) and cultural warfare

New Paintings and Drawings: David Hicks w There’s a wide range of work (and canvas sizes) by Herron visiting lecturer David Hicks on display here, but the eye is drawn toward “Long Division,” a mixed media drawing just about as long as an undivided gallery wall. It shows a twisting highway overpass and a Union soldier on horseback shooting his pistol among numerous incongruent subjects, and it might just be about the festering war between Duck Dynasty patriarchs and loyal NPR listeners in early 21st century America. Maybe it’s the Civil War in contemporary guise. Much of the composition is drawn in black and white, and the colors are as washed out as an American flag that’s been in the rain too long. And in the middle of all this you see the artist, slumped over his desk, a flaccid and forlorn rainbow emanating from his pen. — DAN GROSSMAN 1

“Guardian III” by Martha Nahrwold

Harrison Center for the Arts through Jan. 31 Martha Nahrwold: The Guardian Series r This First Friday, I finally had a chance to take a close look at some of the beautiful work that Nahrwold does in her studio/gallery space. Her process ... well, she’d be happy to show it to you, but you’ll have to visit. I enjoyed the monoprints and mixed media works that make up her “Guardian Series,” focused on the life-force of a single tree. But my favorite was “Finding Dragons and Other Beasties,” full of color and light and rhythm, depicting an exhilarating — and fantastical — array of underwater life. — DAN GROSSMAN 2

“Kubrick’s Camera” by Katrina Murray

Daydreamin’ No. 2: The Droops e (Adam Wollenberg, Ashley Windbigler, Ally Alsup, Christian Brock Forrer, Emily Gable, Paul Pelsue) 4

Art School Rejects III t I think Martha Emily Davis’s triptych of photos “Second Seeing” is one of the standouts in this group show, which consists of work rejected from the 2013 Herron Undergraduate Exhibition. Her black and white film photographs show transmission towers — that is, overhead power lines that bring us electricity, as well as warmth, light, and security. In “Second Seeing,” the transmission towers are rendered as skeletal centurions holding the line against impending darkness. I also enjoyed Amy Applegate’s colorful, untitled painting, whose subject seems to be a missing puzzle piece from an adjacent 4-D universe. The big puzzle is why the aforementioned work was rejected from the Herron show where there was plenty of humdrum mixed in with the good stuff. — DAN GROSSMAN

The Droops, a new artist group comprised of six Herron alumni, created five large, colorful reliefs in black permanent marker on the walls of General Public this month to coincide with the release of its second zine, also entitled Daydreamin’ No. 2. (True to the group’s collaborative spirit, the zine comes with a copy of the new EP by local band Teenage Strange.) Nothing is off limits in their subject matter; the imagery refers to everything from comic books to tattoo flash to the Oregon Trail video game. The tone is whimsical, sarcastic and a bit nihilistic. The art trades heavily in puns and the abject, and shows a fascination with the found imagery and various styles of hand lettering that the keen observer might find when navigating the urban environment. They obviously have a wealth of ideas and are having fun creating work together. The Droops’ artwork shares a kinship with fellow Herron and GPC alumnus Erin K. Drew, and exists in the same realm as the Chicago Imagists and their Hairy Who group exhibitions. Ultimately, the art conjures the feeling most of us in the smartphone age likely feel everyday: being completely overwhelmed by incoming media. The difference is, this media is far more quirky and engaging and leaves a much nicer aftertaste. — CHARLES FOX

“Catching Stars on Park Avenue” by Justin Vining

Chapter XVI — Becoming a City New Work: Justin Vining r If you were forced to choose an adjective to describe Justin Vining’s art, it’d have to be “whimsical.” But there’s a note of lyricism in his work as well, in paintings like “Catching Stars on Park Avenue.” In this painting, a white streak of road curves like the surface of the earth against the dark of the night. And in a painting simply entitled “Park Avenue,” Vining attempts a more literal kind of realism in the same setting, showing promising growth as an artist. — DAN GROSSMAN 5

REVIEWS THE EXILES

BY ALLISON LYNN Little A/New Harvest

e It makes sense for Nate and Emily — the main characters of this novel by Indy-based author Allison Lynn — to move out of Manhattan. Their primary consideration was the astronomical cost of living — with a 10-month old son to support. But their new home in Newport, R.I., ism’t quite ready for occupancy. And that’s mostly because many of the things that they’ve brought along to make the house habitable are now missing. Their belongings were in their Jeep — but their Jeep was stolen just fifteen minutes after they arrived in Newport. This incident is the popping cork on a veritable champagne-bottle-full of tension. Out pour secrets that Nate and Emily have been hiding from themselves and each other. It’s a harrowing yet compassionate story that sheds light on a society where too much is not enough and the things that really matter are too often overlooked. —DAN GROSSMAN

DEATH AND CRUMPETS A

BY M I K E A L L EE ED I T O R S @ N U V O . N E T

t a Death Cafe, people eat cake, drink tea and talk a topic many of us try our very best to avoid. A Death Cafe doesn't involve speakers. There are no religious agendas to promote. Nor is it meant to be a forum for grief counseling. Otherwise, almost all related topics are fair game. Everyone’s equal participation, thoughts and ideas are encouraged. And to keep things light on such a potentially heavy subject, tea and cake are served. To date, over 450 Death Cafes have been held in various cities throughout the world. New cafes are being scheduled almost every day. Indy Indie Artist Colony will host Indiana’s first Death Cafe January 11. Monica Doyle and Jennifer Vines, who will facilitate, hope many more will follow. “We’d love to see this spread to other neighborhoods,” says Doyle. “Anyone can be a host. After all, it’s a subject without experts.” The Death Cafe model is based on the

work of sociologist Bernard Crettaz, who began hosting the first “cafe mortals” in Switzerland in 2004. Six years later, an Englishman, Jon Underwood, heard of the concept, found it intriguing and began to host gatherings across the UK. He set up a small list of guidelines that he felt would be helpful and created a website where others could post their events and experiences. It's since grown into what some have labeled a worldwide “social franchise.” Death Cafe has no staff, generates no funds and is run on a purely voluntary basis. “A better awareness of death may enhance a better awareness of life,” says Doyle. “Once you begin to talk about it, you remove some of the fear that most

of us have and you start to ask, with the time that I have left, what is important? What do I want to accomplish and how do I want to live my life?” Vines points out that the medical and funeral industries tend to dictate what the death experience means to our lives, and many times that means “not discussing or even acknowledging it, until it is too late to do anything about.” Doyle has volunteered for Eskenazi Health's No One Dies Alone program, which brings together community members without nursing skills with dying individuals to ensure they have companionship and support. Vines developed a long standing interest in the subject after taking a Death and Dying class during her years at Florida State University. Both had been separately following the Death Cafe movement before they decided to host an event in Indy during a lunch meeting. Not only will Saturday’s event be the first Death Cafe to be held in Indiana, it will also be the first for both women. n

SPIKE JONZE BUILDS BEST MOVIE OF THE YEAR A divorcée falls for an avatar in transcendent but accessible Her

T

B Y ED J O H N S O N - O TT EJO H N S O N O T T @ N U V O . N E T

he first thing I want you to know about Her, the best movie of 2013, is that it is not about technology. It’s about how people relate, and right now we do a lot of our relating through the use of various high-tech devices. Her prominently features a high-tech device, but it’s about the relationship between a writer that lives in LA and the person that lives in the device. The second thing I want you to know is that the person in the device is, in fact, a person. She may have been designed by humans, but she is a reflective individual that questions her place in the scheme of things. Some reviewers have compared her to Siri, the Apple application that speaks to users. They are so wrong. Filmmaker Spike Jonze (Being John Malkovich, Adaptation, Where the Wild Things Are) has crafted a sweet, sad, fascinating relationship story and a thoughtful piece of speculative fiction. Her is transcendent while remaining accessible. After directing two films based on Charlie Kaufman screenplays, and one co-written with Dave Eggers, Jonze has made a story all his own, an original love story that looks into the near future and sees a warm place where hearts still break, but hope remains strong. Theodore Twombly (Joaquin Phoenix) is a pleasant, vaguely melancholic fellow who works as a writer at BeautifulHandwrittenLetters.com, dictating artfully phrased messages for his clients into the voice recognition interface of his office computer, which reproduces his words in cursive that almost looks handwritten. Whether his job is poetic or creepy is open to debate, but it is undeniably feasible. The quiet life of recently-divorced Theodore changes when he purchases the latest Next Big Thing in technology — the OS1, a self-aware computer operating system that learns and grows from its experiences. He opts for a female voice, and with that his relationship with the freshly sentient

where its camera-eye is able to peek out (he uses a safety pin to keep the lens high enough). Amy Adams plays Theodore’s best friend. Chris Pratt plays his likeable boss and Rooney Mara his exwife. They’re all very good. Joaquin Phoenix and Scarlett Johansson are great. Forget Phoenix’s off-putting late-night talk show performance art, he’s rejoined humanity and creates a soulful, sympathetic character. Credit Johansson for fitting perfectly into her role, even though her part was recorded after filming was complete, replacing Samantha Morton’s meeker take on the character. The near-future Los Angeles presented in Her is optimistic, a creative mix of exterior shots taken in LA and Shanghai. Interiors are colorful and inviting; burnished wood abounds. The fashions are credible, even the high-waisted wool pants. Arcade Fire provides music. Spike Jonze provides the aesthetic, which is refreshingly guileless. Free of ironic posturing, the film looks at love, loss and the resilient nature of the spirit, while gently following its speculative tale to a logical conclusion. Her is one for the ages. n

hen Lloyd, a peeping tom with issues (putting it nicely), thinks he is about to watch a risqué video, he’s in for a surprise when he learns that its star is actually his landlord, who directly asks Lloyd to take out his wife. That’s just one of the funny and dark twists in the locally filmed Pervertigo, directed by Indianapolis native Jaron Henrie-McCrea and produced by Shrihari Sathe. The movie is the latest independent film to be screened at the IMAX Theater at the Indiana State Museum. A one-night-only showing will take place on Friday, Pervertigo director preceded by a Jaron Henrie-McCrea cocktail hour with the cast and crew and followed by a question and answer session with the filmmakers. “The movies I write are kinda weird and, I hope, humorous, depending on the audience,” says Henrie-McCrea. He notes that his influences over the years have included the Coen Brothers and Alfred Hitchcock for their clever writing and dark humor. He wanted to incorporate their styles into this film. While this will be the first screening of the film in Indiana and will be followed by screenings in other American cities in the coming months, the film was featured at the Warsaw Film Festival in Poland and the Mumbai Film Festival in India, both in late October 2012. It was also screened at the Titanic International Film Festival in Budapest in April 2013. “Warsaw was great because people in Poland dig the movies [Americans] make,” says Henrie-McCrea. “Every night people had to sit in the aisles; there were lines out the door. Every single joke was hitting more than I intended. Even jokes that weren’t intentional were getting laughs. I felt like a rock star out there. It was a very proud moment for the film.” Sathe attended the Mumbai screenings. “It was very interesting to see that the American humor was carrying over and

They definitely got the references [in Pervertigo] to other American filmmakers.” Henrie-McCrea and Sathe, who met in film school at Columbia University’s School of the Arts and live in New York City, shot the film in Indianapolis in Fall 2010.

The other actors, who have experience in TV, film and New York theater, were included at the suggestion of the film’s casting director. Most of the crew was based in Indianapolis. Many of them have since moved on to other cities and continue to work in TV or film, including a few interns who were students and recent graduates from area colleges. Henrie-McCrea and Sathe also spoke to students at Brebeuf Jesuit High School about filmmaking at the time. The Independent Film Project helped the filmmakers polish the movie as a part of the 2011 Narrative Independent Filmmaker Lab. Pervertigo was one of only 11 films to be accepted into the program. “We applied to IFP like you would a film festival (filled out a form, mailed a DVD) and we were selected out of over 100 other [films],” says Henrie-McCrea. “[They] provided valuable feedback from industry professionals, helped us find our composer, introduced us to a number of festival programmers. … They helped us find ways to shorten it while punching up the impact of certain scenes.” Criticism included whether the scenes were too racy or not racy enough, especially given the film’s title. After this screening, the film will be shown in other cities and will eventually be available on DVD and digital platforms. n NUVO // 100% RECYCLED PAPER // 01.08.14 - 01.15.14 // FILM 17


BEER BUZZ

BY RITA KOHN

Ted and Shannon Miller rolled out their newest venture, Outliers Brewing Co, debuting four year-round beers at Twenty Tap on Dec. 26 and at Tomlinson Taproom on Jan. 3. You’ll also find those four beers — Buffalo Jacket IPA, Blau Machen Pilsner, County Brown and Whitcomb Rye — at Sahm’s Place, Flatwater Broad Ripple and Brugge, which the Millers and partners opened in 2005. Miller and assistant brewer Brad Wallace revved up Outliers on Dec. 2, 2013, at 534 E. North Street. Sales manager Jason Hepley describes Outliers niche as ‘sessionable.’ “Outliers’ fully flavored beers invite us to slow down, enjoy a beer or two with a meal,” says Hepley. Brewing close to traditional style with layers of taste that expand as the brew warms, Miller says, “We knew IPA, Pilsner and Brown will sell. The rye was the risk, and from what we are hearing, that’s the beer people are talking about.” Indeed, Whitcomb Rye, with its nod to Indiana’s poet universally known for Orphant Annie, imparts an inviting light, dry spicy taste that got us talking at Twenty Tap. Originally the grain of choice for brewing (after a series of bad rye harvests in 15th century Bavaria), barley eventually became the main malt ingredient, sometimes paired with wheat. Rye beer made its comeback in 1988 and now is gaining patrons around the state. Bloomington Brewing Co. just released their seasonal brewed with organic Indiana-grown Feelgood Farm Rye from Herr Station Malt in Lebanon, Indiana’s first malting operation. News, notes Flat 12 Bierwerk’s third anniversary event on Jan. 4 was termed “a one-brewery beer festival” by one reveler. Beer Buzz teamed up with a friend to share samples of eight brews each, thus tasting 16 out of some 50 choices. Over 15 years of homebrewing, Flat 12 head brewer Rob Caputo developed a knack for trying a variety of “what if” change-ups for a basic recipe, akin to what jazz players serve up as riffs on a tune. That spirit of adventure has built a loyal following eager to converse about the merits of aging Farmageddon, a black rye French Farmhouse Ale, in a variety of barrels including brandy, bourbon, rye, blackberry and Corsair whiskey.

Hours and a Colts win-by-a-nose later, my ‘go-to and take-away’ brew was Pinko 23, a richly luscious Imperial Stout aged in 23-year Pappy Van Winkle barrels.

$100 for a cup of coffee? Yep, it’s that good

B Y N EI L CH A RL ES ED I T O R S @ N U V O . N E T

hen is a hundred dollar cup of coffee not a hundred dollar cup of coffee? When half the proceeds go to charity, of course. Which still leaves a $50 cup of coffee, one which I found myself sipping in an appropriately reverential fashion in mid-December 2013 at a fundraiser for Second Helpings at downtown’s Cerulean restaurant. In today’s competitive environment, for a restaurant to satisfy the demands of an increasingly fastidious breed of diner, it needs to be able to offer something other than just good food. And I don’t mean dancing or dinner theater: more like a display of passion and an understanding of the medium that can help an establishment stand out from the crowd and continue to engage its clientele. Fresh and local is a great place to start, with many of the top farmers now becoming household names amongst those who pay attention to where their food is coming from. But is fresh and local enough to sustain interest when almost every quality establishment now has access to more or less the same produce? Caleb France, chef and owner of Cerulean restaurants here and in Winona Lake, clearly doesn’t think so. While taking full advantage of the outstanding produce available from within the state’s borders, he is also expanding his horizons: constantly experimenting with new ingredients and techniques, even engaging the services of an inhouse forager to locate usable quantities of local vegetation. France spends weeks or months perfecting dishes, continually refining them to the point where the depth and complexity of flavors is never less than fascinating. It’s a style of cooking which hearkens back to an earlier, French-inspired era, when kitchen brigades were large, highly disciplined and of necessity expensive. France’s passion for his profession is

evident not just in the quality of what’s brought to the table, but in the pristine organization of his kitchens and his ability to surround himself with equally passionate and accomplished professionals. The wine list, for instance has been assembled by folks who evidently know their stuff: it’s a radical departure from the traditional format, and an improvement on the now familiar progressive list, adding a twist to the proceedings by offering comparable examples of old world and new world wines from the same grape varieties. There’s enough good wine on this list, none of it widely available at retail, that I feel inclined to make repeat visits. Which brings me

back to the $100 cup of coffee. After realizing that most commercially-available coffee didn’t meet with their standards, Cerulean’s own expert Nate McLaurin recently began roasting his own beans at the Winona Lake restaurant. Working with a renowned boutique importer to perfect a house blend (and it is pretty well perfect) the decision was subsequently taken to push the boat out further by pursuing some rare Haraaz Red Marqaha beans from Yemen. McLaurin said he chose this coffee to show “how innovation and close, relational proximity to the farmers can provide opportunity for unique discovery, financial security for farmers and educational experiences for consumers.” As for the taste? Quite unlike anything I have ever experienced: definitely one for the connoisseur. It’s complex and fruity, tremendously high in acidity and possessing an almost Ceylon tea-like elegance. Last time I checked there was still a small quantity for sale at the restaurant. n

INDIANA Q:

Our company expects to implement single stream recycling in 2014. We’re trying to figure out how to quantify what we recycle in order to track our progress. However, we’ll be paying a flat fee for each pick-up of trash, recycling and shredding, not getting a weight or other volume measure for any of them. Besides looking at 96-gallon recycling bin to estimate the volume, do you have any ideas for how to measure recyclables? Thanks for any help you can offer. — STEPHANIE

A:

ASK RENEE ASKRENEE@ INDIANALIVINGGREEN.COM SIGN UP for the AskRenee Newsletter at indianalivinggreen.com.

Congratulations on taking this step toward a greener workplace! Weight would be the ideal measurement to quantify your recycling efforts. Have you asked the waste management company handling your trash and recycling if that’s something they can provide? I’m not sure if that information is available, but it’s certainly worth asking! You may also look at it from another perspective: how much less trash you have. If your company typically has 10 bags of trash each week and after implementing recycling you have 2, that’s an 80% reduction in trash! Perhaps your next step could be to implement reduce and reuse policies. By printing less, printing double-sided and reusing single-sided printouts as scrap paper, you could calculate economical and environmental savings on how much paper you buy in a month. Want to weigh in on Stephanie’s question? Post your ideas on how to quantify recycling or how to reduce and reuse in the office in the comments section at indianalivinggreen.com/ recycling-for-the-win. In one week, we’ll randomly select someone to win a catered office lunch for up to 10 people from Pogue’s Run Grocer.

to protect the outer components of your wiper blade. I have no idea if they’re vital to the safety of the wiper, but in my opinion they should be optional. And I believe they could be made from a biodegradable material. Mike’s Car Wash offers information on how they’re safe for the environment on their website. I encourage you (and anyone else that shares these questions) to contact Mike’s with your questions/concerns. Given that their headquarters are in Indianapolis, I hope they share in your community pride and want to work toward a solution to further their environmental stewardship.

Q:

A:

Recently, we cleaned up trash along a creek that runs behind our business property (86th and Michigan Rd). In the trash we picked up, we were surprised to find so many Mike’s Car Wash plastic rear wiper protector sleeves. Our guess is that they had blown off cars and then tumbled in the wind to the north and east to reach the creek. If we found so many Mike’s plastic sleeves, we can only guess at the number of Mike’s sleeves that are strewn across the Indianapolis environment; streets, gutters, lakes, and streams. We are not sure about their true purpose. We assume they serve more for advertisement than actual wiper protection. Are they actually necessary? Could they be an option instead of a requirement for a car wash? And, could the sleeves be manufactured such that they are rapidly bio-degradable? —THANKS! JOHN

A:

First, thank you for taking the time to pick up trash in your community. It’s pride in our community that leads us to clean up our surroundings – and will hopefully some day lead us to not pollute at all. I believe the purpose of the plastic sleeve is

Q:

Seeing pictures of a mountain of “recycled” water bottles in Madras, India, and mounds of “recycled” plastic bags in the Philippines, and stacks of “recycled” computer parts in other third world countries has me wondering about U.S. recycling. I am beginning to believe that our recycling efforts simply amount to shipping our trash off to another country. Can you enlighten me on this or provide internet sites where I might learn more specifics about what actually is recycled in the U.S.? — THANK YOU, PAT Indiana is home to one of the world’s largest plastic bag recycling facilities. The largest glass recycler in the country has a plant in Indianapolis. A plastic bottle recycler processes 160,000,000 lbs. of plastic in a year at their Richmond, IN facility. RecycleForce says that steel is the largest product they recycle that stays in Indiana – 1.6 million lbs. in 2012. A recent study released by Indiana Recycling Coalition is chock full of information about existing efforts and the potential of recycling in Indiana. Of note, the study identified 77 Indiana manufacturers that use recycled content, including paper, plastic, metals, glass, tires and wood, to make consumer products. I enjoyed IRC’s Executive Director’s op-ed piece that summarized the study. I believe the bigger issue is that we’re simply not recycling enough in Indiana. Also in the IRC study, more than 92% of what gets thrown away in Indiana is valuable recyclable and compostable material.

OPENINGS DJ SCHOOL DECKADEMICS OPENS IN BROAD RIPPLE “Indianapolis has a very strong DJ culture and a lot of talented veterans in the city, several of whom have taught many students over the years,” says Deckademics co-owner and instructor Nick Saligoe, a.k.a. DJ Metrognome. “But Deckademics will provide an arena to teach even more students and pass on the knowledge to anyone that’s willing to enroll in our classes.” Saligoe, along with co-owner Doug Morris of Old Soul Entertainment opened the DJ school SUBMITTED PHOTO in the heart of Broad Morris and Saligoe Ripple last month. They’re looking to kick the new year off with plenty of classes for beginners all the way up to advanced music makers. They’ll even have special one-off nights for those who just want to dip their toe in the water. “We will also be holding some unique opportunities for those with casual interest, such as our ‘DJ Date Night’ events where couples will get instruction and practice together, choose the music, make a short mix and walk out with a CD documenting their work together,” Saligoe says. Saligoe previously taught DJ classes at the Martin Luther King Community Center, and, while it was a lot of fun, he says, he looks forward to the more structured courses his school will offer. “We embrace both the analog (read: ‘old school’) approach as well as the digital options,” Saligoe says. “This is unique because students, regardless of age, will get hands-on time with actual vinyl records in addition to newer, digital platforms that have become more popular and useful in recent years.” Local DJs Cool Hand Lex, TopSpeed, Chase and Saligoe are instructors for the school, whose registration is currently open. “We look forward to helping Indy’s DJ culture thrive,” Saligoe says. — KATHERINE COPLEN Deckademics 6108 N.

MUSIC AS A MEAL

Blair Clark releases new album recorded at Jazz Kitchen

B

BY RI TA K O H N MUSIC@NUVO.NET

lair Clark makes music like a gourmet chef cognizant of a lovely presentation of locally grown, healthfully prepared nourishment for all the senses, body and soul. “I like to make it an experience. It’s not a meal with just bread,” he says during a recent chat. “You have to put more on the plate to make it memorable meal. Music is a meal.” Clark’s style is to be in fellowship with his audience and his fellow players. “That’s what entertainment is all about. I’m an entertainer, more at home on stage than any place else. Art is the ability to indulge yourself in conversation with the audience.” Those are the qualities that led the late Chuck Workman to develop a deep friendship with Clark. “Chuck saw the gap between vocalists and players—where it was expected that the singer be off on the side of the stage and to stop singing when the players took over. He was interested in developing a continuity, like Ella Fitzgerald’s concept with scatting, bending notes and shaping sounds, allowing the singer to vocalize and be part of making music. Singers, vocalists have to use their whole body. I’ve always tried to bridge the gap between singers and players. Ella Fitzgerald was a player and a singer — she was a musician.” Workman’s mentorship led to the newly released Blair Clark Sings The Great American Songbook Live @ The Jazz Kitchen in CD and DVD formats. They are dedicated to Workman. “The Great American Songbook songs are stories,” Clark says. “It’s always been tricky to take something that’s been done perfectly to begin with and not destroy it. Collaborating with Michael Stricklin on arrangements, we allowed each song to have a different personality without destroying its originality.” With Kenny Phelps on drums, Frank

Smith on bass, Reggie Bishop on keyboards, Michael Stricklin on saxes and Mark Buselli on trumpet, flugelhorn and percussion, Clark explains “We evoke the essence of the story while giving the listener something new to think about.” A case in point is My Funny Valentine, which Clark presents through the sentiments of “a gay man to the person he loves.” While the nuance is different from its original presentation in the 1937 musical Babes in Arms — where Mitzi Green as Billie Smith pokes fun at the foibles of Valentine “Val” LeMar, yet doesn’t want him to change because he makes her smile and laugh — the inner truth of the song remains. This is true for the each of the album’s ten songs. While “When I Fall in Love,” “Autumn Leaves” and “The Shadow of Your Smile” remain as ballads, Blair spices them up with Latin rhythms and a bossa nova beat. He talks about why it makes a difference in our lives to “see, hear and feel” these change-ups while having access to the songs in their original settings. “Kids need to hear that music. One of the things I appreciate about Mayor Jim

Brainard is his dedication to music,” says Clark, who lives in Carmel and operates, with his wife Heather Ramsey Clark, the Midwest School of Voice. “Brainard’s father was a music teacher,” adds Clark. “Bringing the Great American Songbook Initiative to Carmel allows our young people to become acquainted with the birth of American music. That’s what Michael Feinstein [artistic director for the Center for the Performing Arts] is about, too. I was raised listening to the greats. My father was a folk musician. Growing up in Lansing, Michigan, I was exposed to phenomenal musicians.” As a graduate student earning his Master’s degree at Michigan State, pianist, vocalist, composer Henry Butler mentored Clark. “Working with a blind musician with perfect pitch was a phenomenal experience. We were doing current music along with the old standards and he didn’t categorize — jazz, pop, classical. We did it all. It was music. It was life. “That’s really what Chuck [Workman] was about too,” Clark says. “It was good to sit with him, listen to the stories, grow from his experiences, gain perspective about love for the sake of the joy of elevating humanity to its highest potential one person at a time every hour, every day — and have fun aspiring to honesty, seeking justice, being peace-filled. It’s not the roads we take but the roads we recover from and music helps us connect.” n

KNIGHTED PUNK B Y SETH JO H NSO N MUSIC@NUVO . N ET

Hours prior to an appearance with The Gizmos at The White Rabbit Cabaret, Jacob Gardner and his gang Raw McCartney do a last-minute run through of their filthy garage punk set, ensuring the night’s lineup is ready to go. They’re simply going by Raw McCartney today but the group, headed by Gardner, has had several incarnations since its birth. This night is no different. From the initial lineup, known as Raw McCartney’s Pussy Eater, to the more recent Raw McCartney’s Fried Family Band — which features two of every instrument ­­— the group’s revolving lineup of local music buddies holds tight to a carefree spirit through riotous rock and roll. “On our last tour, Jacob noted that this is the first band he’s put together where he picked other members based on the company he wanted to keep, and not out of necessity,” said Brian Bissart, a member of the current backing band and Chicago act BIGCOLOUR. “He had the freedom to ask, ‘Who would I rather party with?’ this time around, which is why there’s always someone new at every show. Keeps the entire dynamic of the band interesting to the audience, and to us as well.” A former member of the local psych rock band Crys, Gardner needed an escape from the heady, intense nature of his previous group. “I kept getting fired from jobs, and I was just getting a really shitty attitude, so I was like, ‘I’m going to fucking start a punk band, talk about losing your job,’ ” Gardner said. Originally recording simple tracks on his cell phone, Gardner admits Raw McCartney started out as a joke. But as one gnarly guitar riff led to another, he began to find Raw McCartney fulfilling on multiple levels. “It just felt really fun, really free — way different from Crys or any other project that I’ve been in because it doesn’t matter what it sounds like,” Gardner said. “You’re just like, ‘I like to do it, so I do it,’ kind of thing.” Brissart remembers when Garnder first showed him some cell phone selections, from “Pussy Eater” to “Work Is the Mother Fucker That Keeps You Down.” “I guess the sloppiness and disregard for production quality along with these themes initially attracted me,” Brissart recalls. At one time or another, Raw McCartney has included “Tony Beemer, Jimmy Frezza, Sharlene Birdsong, Jared Birden, Bryce and Jeff from Teenage Strange,

Duncan Kissinger, who currently plays in Raw McCartney along with many other local groups including his solo project Skin Conditions, remembers liking how “off-the-hinges” Gardner’s trashy punk tunes were upon first exposure. Although he’s played every instrument at least once since joining Raw, Kissinger now finds himself playing drums — a refreshing change of pace considering he hasn’t played this instrument in a band for about six years now. With the December 2013 release of Introducing Raw McCartney on Chicago’s Tripp Tapes, as well as an upcoming 7” release with Indy’s GloryHole Records, Sir Raw McCartney plans on sticking to his personal rock and roll god, no matter what wily bunch of local talents he recruits to back him. “I’ll probably just keep writing whatever comes out and just playing it because it’s usually rock and roll in one form or the other,” Gardner said. n Listen to Raw McCartney's release on Bandcamp at rawmccartney.bandcamp. com or at musicalfamilytree.com NUVO // 100% RECYCLED PAPER // 01.08.14 - 01.15.14 // MUSIC 23

A CULTURAL MANIFESTO

Editor’s Note: We filled NUVO with our Year in Review last week for our double issue, but we’re not quite done yet. In no particular order, here’s columnist Kyle Long’s favorite musical moments of the year. Find even more online. 1. BASSEKOU KOUYATE & NOURA MINT SEYMALI AT LOTUS FEST Mauritanian legend Seymali opened the show with a scorching set of psychedelic desert blues, while Malian sensation Bassekou Kouyate ended the evening with a joyous dance party overflowing with stunning musical virtuosity.

2. KRISTIN NEWBORN AT THE INDIANAPOLIS MUSEUM OF ART I was excited to host Newborn for a solo performance at my IMA Final Fridays’ series. Utilizing a variety of loop-inducing effects pedals, Newborn harmonized with a choir of her own voices in a style that reminded me of both Laurie Anderson and tUnE-yArDs.

WITH KYLE LONG KLONG@NUVO.NET Kyle Long’s music, which features off-the-radar rhythms from around the world, has brought an international flavor to the local dance music scene.

period cover of the Robert Johnson classic blues “Me and the Devil” was a memorable high point of Old Soul’s excellent multi-artist tribute to Heron. 6. SAUL WILLIAMS AT DO317 LOUNGE A broken air conditioner on a sweltering hot summer summer night created an uncomfortable atmosphere in the DO317 Lounge, but Williams’ intense performance held the audience spellbound as he blurred the lines of spoken word and hip-hop.

Vocalist Naz Khalid possesses a deadly charisma matched with a razor–sharp, soulful voice. Unlike those artists, Newborn’s vocals possess a depth of soulfulness unrivaled in most experimental or indie music. 3. GRUPO NICHE AND SONORA DINAMITA AT CHISPAS I write a lot about the rich Westside music scene, and this was a highlight of 2013: a super fun and sold-out show by two of Colombia’s most famous musical exports, cumbia innovators Sonora Dinamita and salsa masters Grupo Niche. 4. CHANCE THE RAPPER AT DELUXE AT OLD NATIONAL CENTRE Without an official label release under his belt, I didn’t expect Chicago’s Chance to have a sophisticated live presentation. And I was completely wrong. With a full band, Chance delivered one of the most high energy and carefully orchestrated hip-hop sets in recent memory. As an added bonus, Chicago footwork pioneers DJ Spinn and Rashad opened and closed the show. 5. NAZ KHALID AT OLD SOUL’S TRIBUTE TO GIL SCOTT-HERON, JAZZ KITCHEN Former Kool’s Bazaar vocalist Naz Khalid possesses a deadly charisma matched with a razor­–sharp, soulful voice.

7. THE UPRISING AT THE ATHENAEUM Uprising provided my first chance to catch up–and–coming hip-hoppers like Sirius Blvck, Ejaaz, Azieb Abraha and Human, as well as the astonishing folk artist Myah Evans.

8. CATARACTS MUSIC FESTIVAL AT GARFIELD PARK This day long celebration of psychedelic vibes was my favorite Indianapolis music festival of 2013. Inexpensively priced, grassroots-minded and largely composed of local talent, Cataracts provides a valuable lesson for the more bloated and overpriced festival offerings that are appearing evermore frequently. 9. OMNIMIC WITH MATHEW DAVIS AT KI ECO CENTER My favorite Friday night spot in Indy last year was a monthly open mic night hosted by Mathew Davis. Featuring a range of spoken word and music performance, Omnimic’s line-up was full of surprises. You might catch a performance by NYC underground hip-hop heavyweights Rebel Diaz, or a blistering set from local hardcore unit Negative Vibes. Davis has a new weekly open mic gig lined up Sunday’s at Fletcher Place Books in Fountain Square starting January 12. n >> Kyle Long creates a custom podcast for each column.

EMO You Blew It! A quintet of emo and folkpunk and punk (we’ll stop listing genres now) bands will take over the Hoosier Dome tonight for a show of short sets headlined by Florida’s excitingly punctuated You Blew It! Joining them are The Wild, Wounded Knee, Air Hockey and Some Times. Hoosier Dome, 1627 Prospect St. 7 p.m., $10, all-ages

EDM Altered Thurzdaze Get a healthy dose of EDM every Thursday night. Both Mousetrap regulars and electronic music fans will find something to like about this weekly event, especially as genres like dubstep, EDM and house music gain a greater share of pop culture attention. This is a great way to kick the weekend off early, and get a little practice dancing before you shake your groove thing in nearby Broad Ripple on the weekend. There’s a different lineup of songs every weekend, but one thing remains the same: this is an EDM dream and an allaround blast of a dance party. Mousetrap, 5565 N. Keystone Ave., 9 p.m., FREE, 21+

DANCE Glow Wednesday The Vogue has jettisoned Retro Rewind for the month (possibly forever?) in exchange for Glow Wednesdays, a black light party soundtracked with retro jams. Now pay attention to this cover charge structure: Ladies get in free, gentlemen are $3; college students and industry employees are free. But those who wear neon attire, no matter the job or gender are free all night. Vogue, 6259 N. College Ave. 10 p.m., prices vary (see above), 21+ Oiuja Dogs, Black Lions, Barefoot Engineering, Echo Union, Melody Inn, 21+ Family Jam featuring Adam Catron, Max Allen, Mousetrap, 21+ Blues Jam, Slippery Noodle, 21+

FRIDAY MEMORIAL Songs: Molina: A Memorial Electric Co It’s been under a year since the untimely passing of Midwestern songwriter Jason Molina, who led Songs: Ohio and Magnolia Electric Co., along with a host of other projects. In May, musi-

cians from his various projects (and close friends) gathered to pay tribute to Molina at a show in Bloomington. Now, some of those players will take to the road for a short set of memorial shows to celebrate the works of Molina. Now, we can’t quite claim Molina as a hometown guy, but he did spend part of his life — and did eventually pass away — in Indianapolis. The group will play Magnolia Electric Co. songs along with Molina solo tracks. Radio Radio, 1119 E. Prospect St. 9 p.m., $10, 21+

Ezra Furman is back in town, this time without The Harpoons, Furman’s usual backing band, swapping in the Boy-Friends instead. The rock frontman will play with locals Bait and Tackle Tabernacle. He’s touring in support of his second solo project, an ambitious project with lots of religious (or sacrilegious, rather) undertones. DO317 Lounge, 1043 Virginia Ave., Suite 215 , 9 p.m., $10, 21+

FUTURE LEGEND Jon Batiste We’re sure you’ve heard of the Batiste family, that musical kin out of Louisiana. Jonathan Batiste is a part of that crew – he started playing in the Batiste Brothers Band at age eight, after all. Now he’s touring solo, with a couple full-lengths and EPs each under his belt. He records on the piano and melodica, and tours worldwide. Tarkington at the Center for the Performing Arts, 355 City Center 7:30 p.m., prices vary, all-ages

But their music is so good too.” That’s about the only thing we need to say about these Athens, Ohio thrashers — oh, okay we’ll say a bit more. They’re touring their Serpents Unleashed LP, and came through Indy for the first time with this lineup this summer and liked it so much they’re comin’ back just six months later. They’ll play with Summon The Destroyer, Legion and Dismemberment. (Editor’s note: The 12/26 edition of NUVO included the wrong information about this show and an old photo of the band, whose lineup has recently changed. The editor of this section apologizes for her mistake — she blames all the eggnog.) Rock House Cafe, 3940 S.

All I ask is that you don’t blame it on the alcohol. OK? If you’re going to do wild and brave and unexpected things, make sure they are rooted in your vigorous response to primal rhythms, not in a drunken surrender to weakness or ignorance.

I’m referring to real-life experiments, like when you try out an unfamiliar experience to see if it appeals to you ... or when you instigate a change in your routine to attract unpredictable blessings into your sphere. Now would be an excellent time to expose yourself to a few what-ifs like that. You’re overdue to have your eyes opened, your limits stretched, and your mind blown. Taurus

The wrong turns you made may lead you to a fresh possibility. Is that what you want? Or would you prefer that the lost things stay lost, the dead things stay dead? Make a decision soon. Gemini

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): One of Beethoven’s music teachers said, “As a composer, he is hopeless.” When Thomas Edison was a kid, a teacher told him he was “too stupid to learn anything.” Walt Disney worked at a newspaper when he was young, but his editor fired him because “he lacked imagination and had no good ideas.” I’m sure there was a person like that in your past -- someone who disparaged and discouraged you. But I’m happy to report that 2014 will be the best year ever for neutralizing and overcoming that naysayer’s curse. If you have not yet launched your holy crusade, begin now. Virgo

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): In 1609, Dutch sea explorer

Henry Hudson sailed to America and came upon what we now call Coney Island. Back then it was a barren spit of sand whose main inhabitants were rabbits. But it was eventually turned into a dazzling resort -- an “extravagant playground,” according to the documentary film Coney Island. By the early 20th century, there were three sprawling amusement parks packed into its two square miles of land, plus “a forest of glittering electric towers, historical displays, freak shows, a simulated trip to the moon, the largest herd of elephants in the world, and panoramas showing the Creation, the End of the World, and Hell.” I mention this, Scorpio, because 2014 could feature your very own Henry Hudson moment: a time when you will discover virgin territory that will ultimately become an extravagant playground.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): “If men had wings and

bore black feathers, few of them would be clever enough to be crows,” said 19th-century social reformer Henry Ward Beecher. That might be an accurate assessment for most people, but I don’t think it will be true for you Sagittarians in the foreseeable future. Your animal intelligence will be working even better than usual. Your instinctual inclinations are likely to serve as reliable guides to wise action. Trust what your body tells you! You will definitely be clever enough to be a crow. Sagittarius

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Can you guess what combination of colors makes the most vivid visual impact? Psychologists say it’s black on yellow. Together they arrest the eye. They command attention. They activate a readiness to respond. According to my reading of the astrological omens, this is the effect you can and should have in the coming weeks. It’s time for you to draw the best kind of attention to yourself. You have a right and a duty to galvanize people with the power of your presence. Whether you actually wear yellow clothes with black highlights is optional as long as you cultivate a similar potency. Capricorn

pher and writer Blaise Pascal (1623-1662) loved math. But his father, who homeschooled him, forced him to forego math and concentrate on studying the humanities. Blaise rebelled. When he was 12 years old, he locked himself in his room for days and immersed himself in mathematical investigations. When he emerged, he had Libra

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): I’m guessing that in a metaphorical sense, you’ve been swallowed by a whale. Now you’re biding your time in the beast’s belly. Here’s my prediction: You will be like the Biblical Jonah, who underwent a more literal version of your experience. The whale eventually expelled him, allowing him to return to his life safe and sound -- and your story will have the same outcome. What should you do in the meantime? Here’s the advice that Dan Albergotti gives in his poem “Things to Do in the Belly of the Whale.” “Count the ribs,” he says. “Look up for blue sky through the spout. Make small fires with the broken hulls of fishing boats. Practice smoke signals. Call old friends. Organize your calendar. Dream of the beach. Review each of your life’s ten million choices. Find the evidence of those before you. Listen for the sound of your heart. Be thankful that you are here, swallowed with all hope, where you can rest and wait.” Aquarius

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): How do you like your tests? Short, intense, and dramatic? Or leisurely, drawnout, and low-pressure? Here’s another question: Do you prefer to pick out the tests you take, making sure they’re good fits for the precise lessons you want to master? Or do you find it more exciting and adventurous to let fate determine what unpredictable tests get sent your way? Ruminate about these matters, Pisces. You’re due for a nice big test sometime soon, and it’s in your interest to help shape and define how everything unfolds. Pisces

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Julia Morgan (1872-1957) was the first woman licensed as an architect in California. She designed over 700 buildings in the course of her brilliant career, and thrived both financially and artistically. One key to her success was her humility. “Don’t ever turn down a job because it’s beneath you,” she advised. That’s a helpful message for you to hear, Leo. It applies to the work-related opportunities you may be invited to take on, as well as the tasks that your friends, associates, and loved ones ask you to consider. You can’t possibly know ahead of time how important it might ultimately be to apply yourself conscientiously to a seemingly small assignment. Leo

figured out on his own some of Euclid’s fundamental theorems about geometry. Eventually, he became a noted mathematician. I see the coming weeks as prime time to do something like the young Pascal did: Seal yourself away from other people’s opinions about who you’re supposed to be, and explore the themes that will be crucial for the person you are becoming.
