TAMIKA CATCHINGS’ COMMUNITY LEGACY
I took some offense to the letter to the editor criticizing AJ Feeney Ruiz in your last issue. Does it make him that unusual that he has a degree but doesn’t work in his field? I mean who does? Who actually CAN for that matter? Is it really a cause for derision that he is a pro-LGBT Republican? It seems to me that the real root of the criticism was that NUVO has a confessed Republican writing for the rag. Which is exactly what I like about AJ. I welcome the idea of conservatives who are willing to objectively probe and challenge the party’s beliefs. Liberals don’t have a monopoly on gay rights, underemployment, or even “irony” or hipsterism. I also welcome the idea of some small degree of balance and open mindedness in the editorials in NUVO. (Funny story: the first two months I lived in Indy I thought Hammer was some brilliant reverse-Steven Colbert. Imagine my disappointment when I realized he actually believed the mindless old partisan refrains he parroted). Keep AJ around, if for no other reason than to appease us few moderate, open minded Republicans who read your magazine on a regular basis. — Ryan Spahr, Indianapolis

WHAT HAPPENED? Assessing school assessments Legislative leaders announced Friday that an independent task force will review Indiana’s A-F grading system for schools in light of allegations that the state’s former education chief manipulated the formula to help a school he had touted. The General Assembly passed a law earlier this year ordering the State Board of Education to revamp the system. But House Speaker Brian Bosma, R-Indianapolis, and Senate President Pro Tem David Long, R-Fort Wayne, said Friday that enough questions have been raised about 2012 schools grades to warrant an independent look – in addition to the ongoing analysis by education officials. They’ve asked John Grew, executive director of state relations and policy analysis at Indiana University, and Bill Sheldrake, president and founder of Policy Analytics, to lead the task force. They are to report their findings by Labor Day. Mr. Clean targeting corruption Common Cause Indiana presented its Mr. Clean Award to U.S. Attorney Joe Hogsett on Thursday for his efforts to fight against government corruption. Hogsett is only the third person to receive the award since Common Cause created it in 2010. Roberta Schonemann, the organization’s governing board chair, said the group had hoped to present the award to a recipient yearly, but “legislative efforts to strengthen our ethics, campaign and transparency laws have stalled in recent years, so the award has been on hiatus.” Hogsett said the only way for public officials to maintain the public trust is to be transparent and ethical. “Our work is about thing and one thing only and that is doing the right thing. It doesn’t matter who you are or who you were, it doesn’t matter who you know or what personal politics you happen to hold,” Hogsett said. “If you violate the public’s trust, my commitment is to hold you fully accountable.” Common Core debate continues Superintendent of Public Instruction Glenda Ritz told lawmakers Monday that the education department will review the Common Core standards individually to determine if each would be best for Indiana. Earlier this year, the Indiana General Assembly voted to pause the implementation of Common Core so state officials could take a second look at the curriculum, which was created by state education groups and has been endorsed by President Barack Obama’s administration. In the first study committee meeting, members heard testimony about how Indiana’s standards compare to Common Core. The two upcoming meetings will focus on data related to assessments and the fiscal impact of the choice to either continue implementing or repeal the national standards. Indiana can choose to adopt the English Language Arts standards or the mathematics standards or both. The state board of education can add up to 15 percent in additional standards or qualifications, but states cannot revise the national education standards. Common Core opponent Sandra Stotsky, former senior associate commissioner of the Massachusetts Department of Education, testified that adopting Common Core would be a “waste of money” because the national education standards need to be “completely revised, if not entirely abandoned.” Proponent Kathleen Porter-Magee, senior director of the high quality standards program at the Thomas B. Fordham Institute in Washington D.C., countered: “By choosing to leverage the Common Core and add to them the best of Indiana’s previous standards, you have the opportunity to create a set of standards that would rival the best of the world.” — THE STATEHOUSE FILE 6 NEWS // 08.07.13 - 08.14.13 // 100% RECYCLED P APER // NUVO
THE EFFORT TO ENABLE MASS TRANSIT Plans continue, despite uncertain funding path B Y REBECCA TO W N S EN D RT O W N S E N D @ N U V O . N E T
lanning for the IndyConnect plan to modernize the city’s transportation system continues, even as the policy changes necessary to enable the plan’s actualization remain enmeshed in the bureaucratic quagmire known as the Indiana General Assembly. At a Monday summer study committee meeting meant to help state legislators vet a plan to upgrade the city’s transportation system, Senate Finance Committee Chair Luke Kenley, R-Noblesville, continued to voice his longstanding skepticism that greater investment in mass transit systems could justify the cost. “Is anyone looking at subsidizing small vehicles (for carless residents),” Kenley said. “Environmental issues are not what they used to be with electric cars and all that.” The senator also indicated that he is not easily sold on arguments — as outlined by several mayors and Ron Gifford of the Central Indiana Corporate Partnership — that a more robust public transit system would support revitalization in depressed urban areas. “Are we better off spending money thinking transit will solve problems, or will lack of good schools and safety on streets and jobs in these areas still be an issue?” Kenley asked Gifford. “It’s a big cost item so it’s going to have to show some results,” Kenley added, noting his often-repeated position that road infrastructure is entirely supported by its users through gas taxes and various vehicle-related sales taxes and licensing fees. “Anyone that says transit will solve everything is a selling you a bill of goods,” Gifford said. “To say that a good transit system isn’t required to build healthier communities ... is also selling a bill of goods, in my opinion.” He drew lawmakers’ attention to two sets of statistics that highlight a problematic position for Indianapolis with respect to its ability to compete against other major cities for jobs and talent — as well to its ability to provide basic services to existing residents: 1) Only 61 percent of the jobs in this region can be accessed by public transit within a half-mile of the job site. Indianapolis ranks 73rd in the nation based on this accessibility metric. 2) Only 22 percent of public transit riders can get to their jobs within 90 minutes. On this score, the city ranks 62nd in U.S. Gifford also took issue with the contention that roads and highways are supported entirely with users fees, noting that cities

and counties frequently must supplement highway budgets for roads and bridges with general-fund tax dollars. In addition, both the state government and the municipal government of Indianapolis have sold or leased major assets — the toll road in northern Indiana and the city’s water utility, respectively — to subsidize ever-growing infrastructure costs.
Mayor Ballard steps to the plate, again Mayor Greg Ballard also testified Monday — repeating the case he has laid out to lawmakers for the past two sessions that improvements to the city’s transportation system are necessary for Indy’s future vitality. S E E , T R A N S I T , O N P A G E 08

TRANSIT , FROM PAGE 06 “It’s critical that working people have more time with their families, it’s critical that seniors have better mobility, it’s critical to attracting new residents and it’s critical to the future growth of our city and region,” Ballard said. He highlighted the city’s inability to fund significant upgrades given its current fiscal situation, noting Indianapolis faces an estimated $55 million budget shortfall in 2014. The funding to support the necessary improvements cannot be obtained unless the Marion County residents vote to support a dedicated tax — and, Ballard noted, the people don’t have the option of placing that question on their ballot without the General Assembly’s approval. “I am not asking for bailout. I am asking you to let us decide how to grow,” Ballard said. Ballard also had a response to Kenley’s concern that, should the voters elect to pass a 0.3 percent tax increase to pay for the system, it would present an undue burden on the city’s un- and under-employed. “The lower income people in the city of Indianapolis are dying for this,” Ballard said, sharing an anecdote of a woman who must take a day off work to enable the more than four-hour, roundtrip bus route she must navigate to visit her doctor. “This would be dedicated funding,” he added. “You can’t think of this as an expense – this is an investment so the city can grow its tax base, so future mayors don’t have a structural gap we’re facing right now. To grow the tax base, we must offer amenities people want — that includes transit. “I am asking you to trust the people of Indianapolis to decide for themselves.” Carmel Mayor Jim Brainard echoed this sentiment, arguing that a more robust regional transportation system is necessary to stem the snowballing costs associated with trying to support infrastructure to ever-expanding sprawl into the Indiana countryside and for Central Indiana cities to compete nationally — and internationally — for jobs and residents. “I seriously urge you to consider allowing people to vote it up or down,” Brainard said.

also heard from Indiana Department of Transportation Chief of Staff Troy Woodruff, who briefed lawmakers on a statewide mobility study slated for release Wednesday. “We have no significant congestion in the state of Indiana,” Woodruff said. “The majority of problems are related to construction, weather and snow.” As for the bottlenecks on I-69 on the Northeastside of Indianapolis, Woodruff outlined the opportunities he sees for strategic elimination, such as diverting freight traffic from the metro area along connector highways that link I-69 to I-70 — and I-70 to I-65, and I-65 to State Road 37. “Trying to solve congestion by [For transportation watchexpanding lanes is like trying to lose ers keeping score at home, this is the same INDOT official weight by expanding your belt.” whose family — according to an analysis by The Indianapolis — RON GIFFORD, CENTRAL INDIANA Star — netted an 83 percent gain CORPORATE PARTNERSHIP on a land sale along the I-69 construction corridor.] “It seems to me we don’t think about anything else but conMayor John Ditslear of Noblesville also crete and highways,” Sen.

Meanwhile, out on the streets … As the legislators continue their deliberations, planning for an upgrade to the city’s transportation system that would double the number of buses, add bus rapid transit and potentially enable commuter rail from Noblesville to Downtown continues. The IndyConnect planning process, enabled with a $2 million federal grant and a $400,000 local match, has been like a funnel, starting with a wide-ranging vision process in 2010 and gradually tapering to a more specific plan, Ehren Bingaman of the Central Indiana Regional Transportation Authority explained in a recent interview. CIRTA partners with Indianapolis Metropolitan Planning Organization and IndyGo as members of IndyConnect working together to try to envision and build the best overall transit plan for the metro area. A series of nine public meetings is underway to share preliminary plans, gather feedback and gauge reaction to three rapid transit lines: The Red Line (from Carmel to Greenwood), The Green Line (from Noblesville to Downtown) and The Blue Line (from the airport across town along Washington). [See info box for details.]
IndyGo’s current funding In addition to user fees and federal grants, mass transit is currently supported by a line item in the state budget, which last year distributed $42.5 million to support transit systems statewide — $10.5 million of it to IndyGo, INDOT officials said. Still, IndyGo is cash-strapped, requiring management to be “very creative” in its bus replacement strategies, IndyGo President Mike Terry told legislators. For 2012, IndyGo’s operating budget was $65 million. Federal funds are generally used for capital expenditures, such as new buses, but are now being used to support operating costs. As a result, IndyGo buses that should retire at 12 years and have an average age of six now average 10 years old with some in the fleet dating back to the late ‘90s, Terry said. To help stretch its resources, the IndyGo team is buying used buses from Columbus, Ohio — a metro area with a transit budget almost twice the size of Indy’s.

undreds of cyclists, including some of the Midwest’s top bike racers, will invade Downtown on Saturday for the Mass Ave Criterium. Joining them will be more than 5,000 fans and curious onlookers who will line the streets surrounding the free race, sponsored for the sixth year by, well, us! A massive beer garden courtesy of New Belgium Brewing Co. will help keep the good times flowing. “The party atmosphere coming down the homestretch is second to none,” said Speedway Wheelmen rider Erik Albers, who will compete in the Cat 3/4 race. The race doubles as the Indiana State Criterium Championship. State champions will be crowned in multiple categories, including a special police/ fire/EMS division. Hundreds of racers will compete for a share of $10,000 in cash and prizes. The .67-mile course is basically a triangle, connecting Massachusetts Avenue, Vermont and East streets. Good positioning in the corners will be essential for riders contending for a state title. With speeds exceeding a 25 mph average in some races, it will be difficult for racers dropped in the turns to work their way back to the pack. “The hardest part of the course is that first 90-degree turn,” Whitney Burdzilauskas said of the corner at Massachusetts and Vermont. “You’ve got that manhole cover there as well, and if it’s slippery, there could be a lot of wrecks.” The tight final turn at East and Massachusetts means riders will slow to 10 mph or so, then explode out of the corner at 30 mph or more. “It’s going to be a tough interval every lap,” said Declan Doyle, Bissell-ABG-Giant director. “There’s almost always a headwind they’ll have to deal with as well.” There’s a long straightaway down Massachusetts before the finish, so sprinters must have their timing down perfectly. If they go too soon, they might run out of gas before the finish line. To add additional excitement for fans and racers, this will be the first year the entire men’s elite race will be contested at night under 48,000 watts of light. But the real power will be on the road, with the area’s two powerhouse teams, Texas Roadhouse and Bissell-ABG-Giant, battling it out for the win during the Pro/1/2 race. Bissell’s Aaron Hubbell won the elite race last year, besting Texas Roadhouse riders John Grant and Chad Burdzilauskas at the line. But Texas Roadhouse has since reloaded with two elite-level talents – Adam Leibovitz and Colton Barrett – making a repeat victory for Bissell that much more difficult. Doyle said the rivalry between the two teams is good for local cycling. “Texas Roadhouse has always been the dominant team in the Midwest,” Doyle said. “But last year, we overtook them and that woke them up. They really stepped it up a notch this year by signing Adam, and that’s a good thing. “Their team is pretty old, except for Adam (and Barrett), while our team is relatively young. We’re the next generation, learning
every race. The talent’s there, it’s just a matter of learning to use it.” Hubbell is no longer with the team and won’t be racing Saturday, but Doyle said Bissell will bring eight or nine of those younger riders to contest the race, including Jon Jacob and Graham Dewart. “(Jacob) is coming around,” Doyle said. “He’s starting to get his confidence back after breaking his wrist last year. He’s probably the strongest rider in the race, but he’ll need a little luck to win. … With a guy like him, you can watch him all you want, but if he goes (off in a breakaway), the only thing you can do is go with him. “Graham is also riding really well right now,” Doyle said. “He won the pack sprint in the Indy Crit a few weeks ago.” Doyle said the team would mark Texas Roadhouse’s top two riders, Burdzilauskas and Leibovitz, who he said were “head and shoulders above the rest of the team.” “We’re going to keep Adam within arm’s length and hopefully frustrate them if it comes down to a sprint. Adam’s one of the 10 best criterium riders in the country right now, and while Colton’s good, I don’t think he’ll be in there toward the end of a long race. Ninety minutes is long for a crit, and if this cold front snaps and we get some warmer weather, the heat will definitely be a factor. It’s going to be survival of the fittest out there.” Of course, while on paper it looks like a twoteam race, there could be a few surprises out on the road, particularly if a rider like Panther Racing’s Ryan Knapp gets a lucky break or two. In the women’s elite race, Racing for Riley’s Melissa Moeller tabbed Marian University’s Allie Dragoo, Indie Bike’s Sierra Siebenlist, Midwest Devo’s Chloe Dygert and her teammate Bri Clark as the frontrunners for victory. “Allie made a solo break at the Indy Crit and snuck away for the win,” Moeller said. “She’s been on form all year, and helped Marian earn their newest national cycling title. Bri is the toughest and most aggressive cyclist in the field. She is never content to just sprint at the end, though she has the power for that. Instead she means to make everything a race, and she’ll be sure to throw in attacks – or have teammates to launch attacks. “Sierra is capable in just about every genre of cycling and has been racing a lot this summer. She won at Mass Ave just two years ago. She can stay with the best of them, so she’ll be in the top of the standings. Chloe has only been road racing for a couple months, but she has the power to sprint at the end or break away. If there is a break up the road, she probably even has the legs to bring it back herself.” Moeller suggested a potential dark-horse for victory might be another teammate, Sydney Hatten, who has been in California all summer doing an internship with Specialized Bicycles. No one knows what condition she’ll be in when Saturday arrives. Racing begins at noon with the Cat 5/Citizens race and lasts until 11 p.m.

Ryan Shean: The Up-and-Comer Every year, there seems to be at least one local bike racer whose results take a massive leap forward. It was Ryan Shean’s chance to shine this season. The Team Upland racer won on Day 3 of the prestigious Joe Martin stage race in Arkansas, eventually coming in fifth overall against a stacked field. He followed up that triumph with a podium spot during the Tulsa Tough stage race
in Oklahoma, and has numerous podium and top-five finishes locally. Where are the results coming from? Shean credits his teammates, new coach Curtis Tolson and a new work schedule. “In December, we all got together to talk about our goals for this season and what we expected from one another,” Shean said. “Everyone progressed this year. It’s been fun being a part of that.” Shean and teammate Kyle Perry had a mini-training camp in North Carolina in April, putting in dozens of hours of training in the mountains. He was able to do that and fit in 40 races so far this year by finish-
ing grad school and parlaying the degree into a pharmacy job with a flexible schedule and supportive co-workers. (You can keep those Lance Armstrong/PED jokes to yourself, thank you.) His next target is a top finish at the Mass Ave Crit before he ends his season at the Gateway Cup in St. Louis later this month. “This will be my fourth time racing Mass Ave,” Shean said. “In years past, I’ve raced it after upgrading (race categories) and I’m just trying to hang on for dear life. … I want to do well at this race, not just do it. This is the race everyone wants to do well at. Everyone’s fit. Everyone comes to race.”
“You never know who’s going to be the big surprise of the day,” Shean said, recounting last year’s race when Bissel-NUVO’s Aaron Hubbell and Texas Roadhouse’s John Grant and Chad Burdzilauskas were marked by the pack early in the race, yet still managed to break away and nab the three podium spots. Shean acknowledged he’s gotten attention from other teams after his success this year, but reiterated his happiness on Team Upland, adding, “It’s a little early to be talking about next year. I’m staying focused on this year.” He has no aspirations of going professional, but wants to continue climbing the amateur ranks. NUVO // 100% RECYCLED PAPER // 08.07.13 - 08.14.13 // COVER STORY 11

whitney and chad Burdzilauskas: The fastest couple in Indy It seems like every cyclist in Indy has a story about Chad and Whitney Burdzilauskas. In the bar after a ride, you might hear a rider brag he was able to hang at the back of the back of the pack while Chad pulled the group for miles at a breakneck speed. Nearby, another cyclist may boast about significantly increasing his power numbers after a month or two of being coached by Whitney, who’s a lightning-fast triathlete and cyclocross racer in her own right. The two met, appropriately enough, on the famous Butler training ride. “He teased me about being a triathlete,” said Whitney, who runs The Fitness Lab in Broad Ripple. “He had a lot of personality, but I never thought when we first met that we’d get married.” Whitney’s the first to laugh about their differences – she’s more of a health nut, while Chad is pretty popular with the local bartenders. “He’s the only one I know who can drink his weight in beer one night, then go out and win a bike race the 12

next day,” Whitney said. “He tries to get me to be more indulgent, and I try to get him to be more structured and eat healthy. Beyond that, we don’t try to change each other. We accept each other for who we are.” Neither of the two is going into the Mass Ave Crit looking for a win. Rather, both are content playing a domestique role, helping their respective teammates reach the top step of the podium. “Chad’s goal is to help his younger teammates like Adam Lebovitz and Colton Barrett win races so they can get pro contracts,” Whitney said. “They’re coming into their prime, and Chad knows he isn’t getting any younger. His new role on the team is really on the development side. He doesn’t want to be that shining star anymore.” For Whitney, her main focus is actually 4,300 miles away, in Kona, Hawaii, for the Ironman world championships. Although she’s looking at Mass Ave as more training, she said she’s going to go all out to help her Nebo Ridge teammates. “When I show up for a race, I put everything into it,” Whitney said. After the Ironman, the two plan to stay in Hawaii for a bit, their first non-race vacation since they were married four years ago. They could use the rest.
John & Corbin Schmitz: Father & Son Dynamic Duo
PHOTO BY MICHELLE CRAIG
Corbin (left) and his dad, John.
When it comes to crowd favorites, few local riders can match the fanfare surrounding John Schmitz, better known to his Team Indiebike teammates and the local cycling community as “Suitcase.” So when his son, Corbin, 16, started racing, it was only natural for the cheers to follow him, as well. John, who medaled at the Masters Track Nationals last week at the Major Taylor Velodrome, is looking to continue his strong season with a good result Saturday in the Pro/1/2 race. Corbin will toe the start line in the Juniors 15-18 race earlier in the day. So where did John’s nickname come from? “When I first started riding, I had this big bag on the back of my bike,” Schmitz said. “I didn’t know what I was doing, so every time someone would attack, I would chase him down. I went after everyone, so it became a big joke. Someone would take off, and they’d yell, ‘Go get him, Suitcase!’ And the nickname stuck.” As Corbin started racing, it was only natural that the smaller Schmitz got saddled with a luggage-themed nickname. During cyclocross season, the cheers for “Satchel” are among the loudest of the day. Corbin is fairly nonchalant about the attention. “All the people who know my dad cheer for me, too,” Corbin said. “It’s cool.” It helps that Corbin also happens to be
a terrific kid in his own right. Although they both share a talent on the bike, the two are dissimilar in most other ways – while his dad is boisterous and outgoing, Corbin is more laidback and quiet. Corbin has only been riding for a few years, but the Midwest Devo rider has established himself as a strong rider in his own right, podiuming at the recent Hyde Park Blast crit and dominating the Cat 4 and Juniors divisions in cyclocross last season. “He’s very coachable, but you do have to push him a little,” John said. “At the same time, I want to make sure he’s enjoying it.” Corbin hopes to attend Marian University when he graduates high school and join its elite cycling team. But he also has another goal in mind – beating his old man. “He’s been getting faster, and I haven’t been training enough this year because of work (and school),” Corbin said. “Last year, our cross times were pretty close, probably within 10 seconds of each other (in a few races). But he’s going to get older, and I’m just going to keep getting faster.” Although the two don’t get to ride together as much as they’d like – between different schedules and ability levels, it can be tough – they agree cycling has brought them closer together as father and son. “I probably wouldn’t talk to him much at all if it wasn’t for cycling,” Corbin said with a laugh.

PERFORMANCES Leslie Jordan: Show Pony Jordan, a tiny, fabulous Southern gent who made his Indy debut last year right around this time, must’ve found this city, and Talbott Street, hospitable. The Will & Grace vet (he won an Emmy for a guest role on the show) returns this weekend with a new monologue, Show Pony, that’s in part about his brief stint as a jockey. Talbott Street, Aug. 8 and 9, 8 p.m., $30 Love, Loss and What I Wore t A rich collection of monologues by sisters Nora and Delia Ephron — a sort of tapestry woven out of the things we’ve kept in our closets over the years. The production is simple: five women in black behind five music stands casually pull on and off clothing as they step in and out of a variety of characters. Each actress has her own stylish storytelling style, and the cast together creates beautiful and surprising moments. Particularly moving is Sara Reimen’s breast cancer monologue; a lacy C-cup bra awaits her character’s reconstructed bosom. But Love, Loss and What I Wore is tedious and haphazard at times, and tends to treat essential issues in a superficial way. And it tends to lose a sense of gravity as its piles of discarded apparel build up. — Katelyn Coyne Phoenix Theatre through Aug. 11
REVIEWS Indy Jazz Fest at the Prairie e Indy Jazz Fest, featuring the Indianapolis Jazz Band and Orchestra with guest artists, made itself at home as part of the Marsh Symphony on the Prairie on a balmy first Friday. This lovingly constructed program highlighting Indiana composers under the direction of Steve Allee and hosted by Tom Griswold started from the ‘20s with blues by pianist Leroy Carr and guitarist “Scrapper” Blackwell. A special treat was Allee’s arrangement of Carmichael’s “Georgia On My Mind,” first rendered by Everett Greene in his inimitable “silky-baritone voice” [Griswold] with a piano interlude played by Allee, followed by Cynthia Layne’s upbeat, fast-tempo float on the wind rendition. This well-received ISO debut served as a prelude to Indy Jazz Fest 2013, Sept. 12-21. — Rita Kohn Conner Prairie, Aug. 2-3 Dance Kaleidoscope: Classic Hits r A trio of David Hochoy’s recent works nicely filled the dance-friendly Tarkington stage last weekend. The playfully airborne Ancient Airs and Dances (2011) set on Respigi’s lilting music that we associate with Masterpiece Theatre, especially pleased on an August evening rich with billowy clouds. The oh-my climax came with Mariel Greenlee affecting the pose of a ship’s maidenhead and sailing off on the shoulders of DK’s male dancers. Steve Reich’s music began to assault human patience in what felt like an overlong rendition of Electric Counterpoint (2011). But with “Romeo and Juliet Fantasy” (2012) Hochoy imbued Tchaikovsky’s Overture with dramatic elements to portray the universality of star-crossed lovers. It’s one of Hochoy’s signature works, growing better through the dynamics of a new company of lithe dancers. — Rita Kohn The Tarkington, Aug. 2-3

A VERY FUNNY ‘SHREW’
HART’s Shakespeare in the Park returns with a not-at-all-dark ‘Taming of the Shrew’ BY S CO TT S H O G ER SSHOGER@NUVO.NET
eartland Actors Repertory Theatre (HART) producing artistic director Diane Timmerman says it’s still up in the air whether its outdoor Shakespeare series should be called “Shakespeare in the Park” or “Shakespeare on the Canal” (as has been the case in recent years). HART’s performance space — a tiered outdoor seating area that faces the river — is Canaladjacent, but not really on the Canal, so people might get the idea that it’s, say, right next to the Eiteljorg. Whatever the name, HART will present The Taming of the Shrew in White River State Park twice this weekend, for free. It’s worth more than the price: HART’s an Equity company, so it’s made up of professional actors and technicians making something like a living wage, and it has to rent all its equipment, except for a sound system it purchased this year in an effort to address sound issues that bedeviled past productions. HART is able to make it work with the help of a couple usual suspects — the Indianapolis Foundation, a CICF affiliate, and the Lilly Endowment — and is reaching out this year to corporate sponsors in the hope of finding a more stable financial footing and expanding programming. In the near to distant future are plans to do Shakespeare in the Park in repertory and forge a partnership with Butler University, where Timmerman is chair of the theater department. We spoke with Timmerman on Monday afternoon as stage and audio equipment were rolling into the park. NUVO: How are you dealing with some of the more problematic aspects (misogyny, outdated gender norms, off-color jokes) of Taming of the Shrew? DIANE TIMMERMAN: I think our director, Michael Shelton, and Ryan Artzberger, who plays Petrucchio, and Lisa Ermel, who plays Kate, have come up with some really spectacular solutions to what we view as some of potential problems in this day and age. The play becomes more about two people learning how to be good to each other and less about the caricature that perhaps people think of when they hear the title Taming of the Shrew. If we don’t believe that this couple is a team and a great match, then everything about it would be awful. But in Ryan and Lisa’s hands, we immediately see that this couple was meant for each other, so we’re rooting for them during the play. And also, the play is just very funny. This is not a dark version of Taming of the Shrew.

NUVO: Why is it important that these productions be free?
them to sort of rise to the level of the work and glean what they can?
TIMMERMAN: It’s part of our mission. We know that for a lot of people this is the only Shakespeare they’ve ever seen, but for some people this is actually the only theater they’ve ever seen. It’s a wonderful opportunity to have families come to the show and see professionally produced theater for free in this beautiful outdoor setting that celebrates Indianapolis and the White River, as well as classical theater. It creates a wonderful atmosphere. We have people all the way from couples with candelabras and tablecloths, champagne and caviar, to families with buckets of Kentucky Fried Chicken.
TIMMERMAN: The reason that people don’t understand Shakespeare, whether it’s their first production or their twentieth, is because it’s not done well. No one is going to understand every single work of a Shakespeare play, unless they’re a scholar, because a lot of the words are out of use, a lot of the syntax is very difficult to follow. But if the director and actors are crystal clear on what it is they’re saying and doing, we get that as an audience. And Michael and the actors have done an excellent job making things crystal clear. I’ve directed it twice myself and seen it a couple of other times, and when I watch rehearsal, some of the jokes jump out at me in a way that I didn’t notice before. I believe this production finds all of the humor of the script, and not all productions do that.

ON DISPLAY Seven Steeples: Nevada Buckley, Erin Trimble and Ash Windbigler e Walking into Two-Thirds, one feels like one of the hapless protagonists entering Leatherface’s home in The Texas Chainsaw Massacre; a voyeuristic attraction to unfamiliar things gives way to repulsion upon further inspection. Seven Steeples blends crafty and creepy elements with a heavy dose of nostalgia. The result is some“Close the Door!” thing that feels universal by Nevada Buckley yet slightly out of reach. The artists employ an inconography consisting of antlers, skulls, teeth, dolls, family portraits, and feathers. References to camping and hunting abound; three interactive, dwelling-like installations, one by each artist, are located in the center of the gallery, and many of the works are hung with yarn or twine. Hauntingly nostalgic, dark music by electronic duo Boards of Canada played during the opening proved an apt equivalent to feelings evoked by the artwork. I walked away reminded of the impermanence and ultimate failure of memory, with a sense that feelings will remain where images and details fade away. — Charles Fox Two-Thirds Studio through Aug. 23

BOOKS, CARTOONS AND URBAN DECAY FIRST FRIDAY, BY THE NUMBERS
Cartoons is Murda Bizness: Unsavory Cartoons by Caitlin Stephens and Rob Young e Caitlin Stephens and Rob Young live and work in close proximity to each other, literally and in terms of their interests and technique. They’re both Indy Indie resident artists and Herron graduates. And their typically sordid work often incorporates text and is sometimes structured by graphic novel-style panels. Stephens makes effective use of both panels and text in “The Woods,” which shows two pimply, green-skinned fast food workers wondering where a fellow employee has gone. The answer becomes evident in the last panel, which shows a deep forest running perpendicular to the fast food counter. The kicker is as strange and unexpected as a vivid dream. Another highlight is Young’s “First Kiss,” where a boy strangles a girl with his tongue. Indy Indie Artist Gallery through Aug. 29

Call it creature cubism. And Sofiya Inger’s “Painters Making the World” (acrylic on canvas) portrays what 3

Spineless t It’s another group show of local artists at the Harrison Gallery — the 6th annual book arts exhibit (created in concert with Herron), in fact. The promotional copy hints at the problem here by allowing that “the artist’s book is primarily a 20th-century form.” The irrefutable fact that we’re now in the 21st century doesn’t seem to rear its head much in this show (nor has it in its previous incarnations). Fortunately, artists can be utterly current with seemingly outmoded media. Take, for example, Stacey Holloway’s letterpress book, Gestures of the Unconscious. It’s a book with backbone as well as a spine. One of the illustrations, “Heavy Downpour,” portrays airplanes in place of raindrops. Thanks to 9/11, it has a 21st-century feel.

OPENING Blackfish t Solid documentary about the care and treatment of orcas – killer whales – at sea parks, with the focus on one whale who has taken several lives while in captivity. Many staff members from various parks speak out on the intelligent animals held in captivity for the entertainment of others and the sometimes tragic consequences. The documentary format is routine, but the stories are compelling. (PG-13) — Ed Johnson-Ott We’re the Millers t In order to better his chances of getting a load of pot across the Mexican border, drug dealer David Burke (Jason Sudeikis) hires a “family,” including a stripper (Jennifer Aniston), a goofball (Will Poulter) and a homeless punk (Emma Roberts). The story in the R-rated comedy is tired, but the jokes are funny, if juvenile, and the cast is likeable. Serviceable late summer fare.

But on New Years Eve everything explodes in a nightmarish miscarriage of police power. Powerful filmmaking — the fact that you know how it’s going to end just makes it even more devastating. One of the year’s best. (R) — Ed Johnson-Ott The Way, Way Back e The Way, Way Back is one of those refreshing treats that pop up too rarely during the summer. It manages to be charming even while depicting people behaving badly, seamlessly blending comedy, drama and those terribly awkward moments in-between. Credit the well-chosen cast — Duncan (Liam James), a quiet, glum 14-yearold boy doomed to spend a summer with his recently divorced mom, Pam (Toni Collette) her well-intentioned jerk of a boyfriend, Trent (Steve Carell) — and the writerdirector team of Nat Faxon and Jim Rash, who shared an Oscar with Alexander Payne for their screenplay for The Descendants. (PG-13) — Ed Johnson-Ott 2 Guns r Violent action flick about two undercover agents out for revenge after getting screwed over by their respective agencies. The story is overwritten, but Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg are in fine form and they make the convoluted machinations work. The two make a fine team as well – wouldn’t mind seeing a sequel. (R) — Ed Johnson-Ott

WHERE EVIL GOES UNPUNISHED
Indonesian mass murderers brag about their exploits in new documentary BY ED J O H N S O N - O TT EJOH N S O N O T T @ N U V O . N E T
ome things have to be seen to be believed. The Act of Killing, a mindboggling documentary by 38-year-old Joshua Oppenheimer, will leave you reeling. Oppenheimer set out to make a straightforward documentary about the Indonesian mass murderers responsible for an astounding number of deaths in 1965, but encountered obstacles at every step. So he turned to the self-styled gangsters and offered them the chance to tell their own stories. The results are stunning and horrible and mesmerizing. You’ll see a grandfatherly type (he looks like Nelson Mandela) recreating his murders and showcasing his favorite techniques. You’ll see a cross-dressing gangster stuffed into an evening gown a la Divine performing in a psychedelic musical number. What you’ll see mostly are unrepentant assassins reminiscing about their crimes like old football players looking back at their glory days. What’s more, you’ll see the community around them celebrate the monsters. It’s a madhouse. A madhouse! And it doesn’t get sane, it doesn’t find moral clarity. It stays firmly, defiantly, right smack in the middle of Main Street in Crazy Town. There are many grimly funny moments in The Act of Killing, but make no mistake, this is a horror film where not only does evil go unpunished, it is celebrated. The gangsters, who pattern themselves after Marlon Brando and Al Pacino, are hot properties on the talk show circuit. They get approached in malls by people sensing a once in a lifetime photo op. Remember, these men killed thousands of human beings. Estimates of the slaughter run as high as 2.5 million. They killed savagely. Casually. In some cases, they cut off their victims’ heads. And here they are, decades later, enjoying the attention of their public as they recruit locals to act out the roles of victims in their obscene recreations.
Documentarian Joshua Oppenheimer reenacted mass murders committed in Indonesia during the 1960s using some of the perpetrators of those murders as actors. OPENING
THE ACT OF KILLING

Dancing girls enter a giant fish in a musical envisioned by an Indonesian mass murderer in The Act of Killing.
“History is written by the winners,” says one of the gangsters, “And we are the winners.” Maybe my moral outrage is misplaced. It astounds me – and deeply offends me – to see such atrocities treated with brazen indifference – hell, with pride! But is it any worse than the way Americans of European descent manage the memories of how their ancestors dealt with Native Americans or captive Africans? Our kinfolk destroyed one culture and made slaves of members of the other. Most of us simply don’t address those acts now – we
didn’t do it, it was our ancestors! – while a smaller group still celebrates the barbarism. I guess the brazen behavior of the Indonesians shouldn’t shock me all that much, but I was rattled nonetheless. As the grandfatherly Anwar Castro asserts, the word gangster means “free man.” I dunno. During an appearance on a TV news talk show, the host recounts the deadly exploits of her guests and offers an estimate of their body count. The impressed audience applauds. Ladies and gentlemen, you have got to see The Act of Killing to believe it. Maybe you’ll get on your moral high horse like I did. Maybe you’ll find the honesty refreshing. One thing’s for sure. You won’t see another documentary like this one.

One corner of the Fountain Square Building’s patchwork deck is devoted to summer dining and a spectacular view.
UP ON THE ROOF
The food at Fountain Square’s Rooftop Garden, brought to you by End of the Line, is nearly as good as the view BY M . S . J . CL I N E EDITORS@NUVO.NET
ith the weather this summer lending itself to outdoor eating, it seemed like the perfect time to climb into the old elevators in the Fountain Square Building and dine al fresco on the roof beneath the setting sun. And it turns out that the Rooftop Garden Restaurant offers more than just a great view of the city. For the uninitiated, the building’s roof is covered by a patchwork deck the runs the entire expanse of the building. On the right night, with a gentle breeze, a collection of good people, and a sturdy pair of sunglasses, you’ll never want to leave. The Rooftop Garden Restaurant is a summer extension of the same building’s first floor gastro-pub, The End of the Line, and thus offers the same dinner menu. We started with an order of the fresh baked pretzel sticks ($7.50) accompanied by Havarti dill and Stout beer sauces. True to their word, the pretzel sticks were freshly baked and almost too hot to handle when they arrived — and they’re good enough to put The Rathskeller on notice. The only disappointments of the entire meal were the dipping sauces: The Stout beer was weak and the Havarti dill fell well short of its potential. For our main dishes we settled on half a rack of Carolina Style Baby Back Ribs ($13), the Gooey Spinach Melt ($10) and the Thai pizza ($10). A Gingham salad went along with the ribs, and its generously portioned mix of mixed greens, blueberries, strawberries, mandarin oranges (all fresh), toasted pecans, and real blue cheese finished off with a poppy seed vinaigrette was the second straight strong offering from the kitchen.
A slightly and intentionally burnt crust adds another dimension of taste to the Thai pizza. REVIEW

The star of the meal was the Carolina Style Baby Back Ribs. Proponents of marinated and sauce-laden ribs may be converted by this dry-rubbed, slow-roasted, perfectly charred half-rack. The mustard style BBQ sauce — more mustard than BBQ — had a strong opening presence of Dijon, while a familiar tang of BBQ sauce brought home each meaty bite. The thin crust Thai pizza rewarded us for eschewing its Cajun counterpart. The
slightly and intentionally burnt crust added another level to the already intense combination of peanut and sweet chili sauces. Crisp matchstick carrots and peppers atop water chestnuts, ginger, green onions and sesame seeds all found different parts of the palate to stimulate. The Gooey Spinach Melt is precisely that, and worthy of a doggie bag due to its base of Texas toast-sized cuts of marbled rye. The spinach dip had a helpful crunch thanks to large chunks of water chestnut, and the alfalfa sprouts and diced tomatoes offered enough freshness to leave us mostly guilt free when attacking a fist-sized side order of no-frills, well-executed white cheddar mac and cheese. With the meal going so well and the view only getting better, we felt skipping dessert would be a disservice. Our honest, friendly server recommended the Lemon Bar ($6) as a personal favorite. We took his hint and added the House Made Cheesecake ($6) in the name of research. The Lemon Bar had a custard consistency making it lighter than most, and the homemade kiwi sauce on top could not have been better. The Cheesecake was likewise lighter than most of its gutbusting brethren, and while the wedge was generous in size, it proved easy to dismantle due to the lemon zest throughout, which helped curb the richness. A light caramel drizzle made a sweet addition to the bites that made its acquaintance. The prices seemed fair at the start, and better with each moment of the retreating sun. The service, while perhaps unique to our server and his tableside manner, is excellent. And the food deserves all kinds of superlatives, but suffice to say that it’s really damn good.

Even those who aren’t riding in the Mass Ave Crit (check out our cover story, pg. 10, for more info) are likely to work up an appetite during its many hours of racing and fun — it’s kind of like a contact high, a phantom need for extra calories.

Everything at Bru is prepared in-house, including the bread, ketchup and mayonnaise. The burgers are all made to order from a proprietary blend of hormonefree sirloin, chuck and brisket. The chicken is Amish-raised.

INDY GRAPE GROWERS HAVING A ‘PRETTY DARN GOOD’ SUMMER T
he ideal growing conditions of 2013 have Indiana grape growers forgetting last year’s dry and scorching summer. Indiana wineries and independent vineyards are looking at the potential for a bumper crop of wine grapes. Indiana has nearly 600 acres of vineyard to support what will soon be 70 wineries. But most Hoosier wineries buy all or some of their fruit from inand out-of-state suppliers. Dennis Dunham Often Indiana vineyards are just 5, 10, or 15 acres and provides fruit for only a small portion of their production. Two of the state’s biggest wineries, not surprisingly, have the biggest vineyards. Oliver Winery has its beautiful 50-acre, Ted Huber Creekbend Vineyard just a few miles off Highway 37 near Bloomington. Ted Huber has the state’s largest winery-owned vineyard with
BY HOWARD HEWITT
nearly 70 acres producing grapes on long-held family property overlooking the Ohio River Valley close to Louisville. “Everything looks perfect and ideal at this point,” says Oliver’s Director of Winemaking Operations Dennis Dunham. “We’ve had a fair amount of rain pre-veraison [or before grapes began to ripen], but it’s not a big deal.” Dunham said the vineyard had issues last year in the hot weather. The lack of rain forced vineyard workers to cut clusters from the vines to encourage ripening of what remained. Huber said this year’s story is similar down south. “We’re probably 15-20 percent in veraison and the rest of the varieties are a week out,” Huber says. But like any Hoosier farmer, growers are never totally happy with the weather. “The problem we’re having now is excess vine growth,” Huber says. “So we have several different groups working
almost seven days a week doing shoot positioning, leaf pulling, cutting, getting rid of the massive canopy we’re seeing right now. It’s necessary so we go into veraison and can ripen fruit correctly.” But both men agree a bumper crop is starting to look certain. This year we have a bumper crop of leaves and shoots, and a full canopy absorbing the sunshine,” Huber says. “So if we get the fruit exposed to it and let mother nature take its course, we should be able to ripen everything.” Dunham says Creekbend is set to deliver the biggest normal crop winemakers can ever expect. But what does it all mean to Hoosier wine consumers? First, it means there are more Indiana grapes on th e open fruit market and the chance for some producers to buy locally. Second, great wine is made in vineyards and not by winemakers. A great crop should mean a great 2013 vintage. Howard W.

Cory Chisel’s tour has touted a very special guest at each date thus far. And, yes, we agree the indomitable, sultry-voiced Norah Jones is very special indeed. This show was a bit confusingly set up, as each of the four groups to take the stage were made up of the same musicians. Essentially, it was a four-part instrument and vocal shuffle, with Jones joining throughout three of the sets. Band number two (that is, the second iteration of the constant band) was The Candles, helmed by Jones’ bass player Josh Lattanzi, who differentiated themselves from the rootsy stage takeover with a ‘90s rock sound. Although Chisel’s stage banter left a bit to be desired, his was the most exciting portion of the night, especially when singer Adriel Denae and Jones took the stage for a delicate duet. Overall, it was a beautiful and surprising night, laced with Jones’ distinctive voice.

THE NATIONAL AT MURAT THEATRE SUNDAY, AUG. 4
e Cincy-turned-Brooklyn rockers The National have a very special place in my heart. In fact, they’re one of the few bands that I almost feel too close to to accurately review. But trust me when I say their Trouble Will Find Me tour is the finest I’ve ever seen them. This setlist has a pack of new songs up front, with highlights from their previous albums scattered through (and a few surprises, like a crescendo-crazed “About Today” and a sentimental “Baby, We’ll Be Fine”). Trouble Will Find Me is their best outing yet — yes, trumping even Boxer — and hearing the group work out these songs live is a pleasure. I’m really loving the live visuals from this tour, which includes a filtered live feed of the stage as a backdrop. My only complaints? I wish the vocals from Matt Berninger had been a bit more clear, but with a voice like his — ultra deep, ultra mellow — I understand the mixing difficulty. I’ve always thought The National have some kind of supreme balance. Is it because it’s a band made of two sets of brothers, who are super-solid musically? I’m not sure. But I know that every time I see them, it’s a great night. — KATHERINE COPLEN

Crowes singer Chris Robinson
spoke with Black Crowes drummer Steve Gorman the day he made a big announcement. No, nothing about drumming, or the band he’s played with for 20-some years. This was about his long-running sports show, Steve Gorman Sports, broadcast on Nashville radio station 102.5 FM. Was broadcast, at least, until this month. “I have things in the works,” Gorman says on the phone, about his decision to leave Nashville radio. “The show will be back this fall with a few changes, all much better for me and for the show.” He’s no stranger to big career shifts. After all, his Georgian rock band The Black Crowes have changed course significantly in the last 12 years, with two long hiatuses smack dab in the middle of their third decade of music-making. “In 2001 and in 2010, at the end of those tours, I would have told you, I don’t think the band’s coming back,” he says. “And I thought that even more so in 2010. I really didn’t think the band would come back.” But the Crowes, whose hit songs “She Talks To Angels” and “Remedy” are ever-present radio tracks, even 20 years later, are back and happier together than ever. “I’ve said this all year, and it still amazes me to hear it, but this is the best tour and best year the band has ever had as far as personal relationships,” Gorman says. “We’ve had more fun in 2013, and allowed each other to have fun, and been more respectful and appreciative of each other than any time in the band’s life, which is the greatest surprise of all.” That personal relationship reference is of course a nod to the often-strained, occasionally combative relationship of Crowes’ members and brothers Chris and Rich Robinson, which hit its height in the ’90s after the band’s explosion of popularity. Coincidentally, Gorman has memories of some of that tension right here in Indianapolis. “We always used to go to the Union Station where there was an indoor miniature golf course,” Gorman says. “We would go have family-fueled angry grudge matches of miniature golf. That’s what the ’ 90s in Indianapolis were for me.” After those matches, they’d have to eat, of course.

“We used to hit St. Elmo’s or Steak ’n Shake, depending on our mood,” Gorman says, laughing when I tell him I wished I had served the Black Crowes when I was waitressing at Steak N’ Shake years ago. Their most recent release, 2013’s four-LP Wiser for the Time, is a fairly concise musical history lesson for the Crowes, through all their stops and starts. Recorded during a five-night run in New York City just before their 2010 hiatus, Wiser for the Time is 26 tracks of Southern rock goodness, a career retrospective for a band with an uncertain future. But does Gorman like it? “I don’t like live albums!” he says. “We listen down to stuff and we know when something’s good, but I rarely listen to Black Crowes records. In fact, I never do unless there’s a reason to. I love our records until they’re released. It’s like you have this secret, and it’s just yours. You’re still thinking about it and living in that world. But the second that record hits the stores, the minute you share it with the buying world, it’s not your record anymore. It’s everybody’s record.” But his feelings toward records — even live ones — doesn’t have much effect on his feelings toward touring, which he sees as something completely different. “We’ve never been a band that tours with the mindset of, ‘We’re on tour to promote an album.’ Even when that was the norm, 25 years ago. Our tour was to tour,” Gorman says. “That was our life; the point was to be a living, breathing, working band.” Really, it all comes back to wanting to just play the drums, which is all Gorman has wanted since he was a fourth grader playing “The Yellow Rose of Texas” on the glockenspiel. “There was a sixth grader who played a full drum kit,” Gorman says. “But that was only for sixth graders. And I was convinced I was going to be the only fourth grader to ever play the full kit. That, of course, didn’t come close to happening. So, in my first act of true rock and roll defiance, I walked from the band, because it wasn’t at all what I wanted. But I still took my drum and bells to school every Wednesday, because if I had told my parents I had quit after they bought those things for me, they would have killed me.”

GOING FOR THE (THREE) Iconic prog band Yes plays three albums per show B Y K A TH ER INE C O P L E N KCOPL EN@NU VO . N ET
August brings a variety of classic rock acts to Indy stages, including the prog wizards of Yes, who plan to play three albums straight through at their Monday show at the Murat. I spoke with drummer Alan White, who played on some of the 20th century’s most iconic albums (Imagine, All Things Must Pass, XYZ) before devoting his career to Yes. NUVO: How do you prepare for a show that is three albums long? ALAN WHITE: We played most of the material before in different years but we never actually played them in their entirety together or at the same time so it’s quite an adventure for us. The first time we played was Close to the Edge then was Going for the One then we usually take an intermission and we get The Yes Album … It comes with a lot of years and Yes music but playing the albums in their entireties is a lot of pleasure. NUVO: How did you settle on these three albums? WHITE: Pretty easy really. Close To The Edge is a very landmark album from the early ’70s from the band. That was a great album in

progressive music. Then Going For The One of course was around ’76. It was just a different year, and then The Yes Album was the break— the kind of album the band had prior to those two and it had a lot of hit radio play — “Starship Trooper,” “Yours is No Disgrace” and those kinds of songs. [They have] given the audience a great show, expanding the life of Yes really over three albums. NUVO: You, like Journey, have taken on musicians from tribute bands — people who are devoted to and love your music [in Yes’ case, Benoit David and Jon Davison] — into your bands. What’s the process of integrating someone from a tribute band into the original band? WHITE: Actually some of the guys from tribute bands know the music more than we do. It’s pretty interesting. Jon Davison, the singer, was in a band called Roundabout, I believe,
but he’s singing in a few bands. He’s singing in a band from Seattle, which is where I live, called Sky Cries Mary for a while. NUVO: I know you’ve written music for several Yes albums. What are a few of your favorite bits? A few of your favorite things to play on stage? WHITE: Actually, I wrote most of the main parts of “Machine Messiah” from Drama. There’s a song called “Mind Drive” on Keys to Ascension 2. I don’t know if you’re really familiar with that. I wrote the rhythm pattern and some of the chords for that. I enjoy people and I enjoy playing with different styles of music but also different styles
of people who play different styles of music. I kind of adapt most of the time to what people want as far as the rhythm section goes and basically with Yes, I didn’t play everything exactly the way that Bill Bruford played. I added some of my own flavor to it and made it work with my kind of attitude toward their music but obviously kept a lot of the structured parts together. Basically it’s been great. Working with Yes was a challenge anyway, and I’ve always enjoyed a challenge. Yes music is very much a challenge to transfigure every night. It’s no easy walk playing two or three albums with so many notes, time signatures and it’s interesting to keep your mind occupied, that’s for sure.”

A PLAYLIST FOR THE SOCCER FIELD
occer fever gripped Indy last week when 42,000 fans gathered at Lucas Oil Stadium to watch an exhibition match between two of the world’s top professional teams, Chelsea and Inter Milan. On Saturday, a more community-oriented set of games took place as hundreds of local amateur players converged at Northwestway Park to compete in the Mayor’s Latino Soccer Cup. While these two events may have been worlds apart in terms of size and scope, they shared a couple notable similarities. Both events generated a festive, international atmosphere reflective of the game’s global popularity, and both events benefitted from the presence of the Indy Eleven. The Indy Eleven organization has been working hard in preparation for their 2014 debut as Indiana’s new professional soccer team. I recently met with the Eleven’s director of community relations, Guy-Jo Gordon. I was pleased to hear Gordon’s vision for the team is deeply focused on inclusion. Gordon stressed the importance of making Indy’s international community a valued component of the team’s fan base. Gordon spoke optimistically about soccer’s vast global reach and its potential to unify Indy’s diverse population. So, in tribute to the Indy Eleven, and soccer’s international spirit of fellowship, I created this global soccer playlist. Soccer and music share a unique relationship unlike any other I’ve seen in sport. Chants and club themes are a crucial element of game day rituals and the heroic plays of the game’s stars are often mythologized in song. JORGE BEN “PONTA DE LANÇA AFRICANO (UMBABARAUMA)” Brazil’s Jorge Ben should be considered the poet laureate of soccer songwriting. Ben has written several classics about the sport, but “Umbabarauma” is his ultimate soccer anthem. The song’s simple lyrics give a play-by-play account of a mythical African soccer hero, mixing psychedelic funk and pounding Afro-Brazilian rhythms into a highly addictive musical masterpiece. MANU CHAO “LA VIDA TOMBOLA” It’s slightly ironic that one of the most beautiful and poignant songs about soccer was written about Argentina’s Diego Maradona, the game’s most polarizing player. In “La Vida Tombola” (“Life is a Lottery”), Chao dreams of channeling the intense passion that made Maradona one of soccer’s greats. “If I were Maradona, I’d live just like him. In front of any goal, I’d never make a mistake,” Chao sings. FRUKO Y ORQUESTA “LA PACHANGA DEL FUTBOL” Colombia salsa legend Fruko’s mid-’90s remake of Carlos Argentino’s 1964 classic Cuban-style pachanga. Fruko updates the lyrics by name-checking Carlos Valderrama and other stars of Colombia’s national team. FRANCO & LE T.P. O.K. JAZZ 1985 “F.C. 105 DU GABON” In 1985 Tabu Ley and Franco, two giants of Congolese music, recorded songs honoring an obscure Gabonese soccer team known as F.C. 105. Well, legend has it they were bribed by Gabon’s notoriously corrupt president Omar Bongo. During his 41-year rule, Bongo’s plundering of Gabon’s natural resources made him one of the world’s richest men. Despite the song’s uninspiring origins, Franco’s tribute has endured as a classic of Congolese music.

Inter Milan vs. Chelsea
MILTON NASCIMENTO “AQUI É O PAÍS DO FUTEBOL” A poetic meditation on Brazil’s obsession with soccer. “Brazil is empty on a Sunday afternoon. For those 90 minutes, Brazil is soccer,” Nascimento sings over a jazzy bossa nova beat. MARCOS VALLE “FLAMENGO ATÉ MORRER” I doubt there’s another sports team in the world with a library of tribute songs that rivals Rio de Janeiro’s Flamengo. “I’d skip a meal or work an extra day to make some money to see my team Flamengo,” Valle pens. TOOFAN “AFRICA HOYEE” The biennial African Cup of Nations tournament always generates an exciting crop of songs celebrating the game. This recent example from Toofan made stars out of the Togolese pop group. JACKSON DO PANDEIRO “O REI PELÉ” There’s no shortage of Brazilian tribute songs honoring Pelé, but forró legend Jackson do Pandeiro’s take on the greatest to ever play the game wins the lot. Pelé attempted a music career himself, recording with Brazilian superstars like Elis Regina and Sérgio Mendes. JORGE BEN “FIO MARAVILHA” Back to Flamengo again for this tribute to Rio fan favorite Fio Maravilha. Only in Brazil would you find lyrics like this, “He played with inspiration, with much love and emotion. Thirty-three minutes into the second half, he made the explosive goal. It was the goal from an angel.”

ROCK Styx Canadian singer Lawrence Gowan replaced lead singer Dennis DeYoung in the late ‘90s after opening for the iconic prog/musical theater act Styx. We spoke to Gowan last week about his thoughts on the band’s mythology: “There are obvious literary references in the music, and in the name. I always loved the name of the band. I thought, what a good name for a band. If you cross this river, you know you’re not coming back. i love that it speaks to mythology, and quite honestly, that plus the lyrics in songs like ‘Sing for the Day’ or ‘Fooling Yourself’ and ‘Come Sail Away’ gives us license to go over the top in terms of the epic adventure of what a Styx show is. We’re allowed to do that. We’re allowed to try and live up to the almost superhero level of performances and shows that to us just makes it more fun. I look at some bands whose music I might happen to really love, but because they came out in a different era, when sensibilities had altered somewhat, the kind of performance we give would seem completely out of place. The mythological proportions of the music that Styx performs allows us to personify that onstage.”

But it’s just — we’re in a good place. And making the record we had everybody in mind who we wanted to produce it and so Derek and Jim Scott producing it and Bobby Tis engineering it. It just — it went really easy and it was a lot of fun making the record. And that’s one of the hardest things I’ve found in my career is making records and having a good time doing it. Usually it’s kind of a stressful thing. But it’s been a lot of fun with this band. And the music — the songs — I love every song on the record this time whereas
in the past it’s not that I didn’t love all the songs but I’d sometimes fast forward through tunes. But now I don’t even really want to pass anything so that’s a good sign.” White River State Park, 801 W.

FREE WILL ASTROLOGY © 2013 BY ROB BRESZNY ARIES (March 21-April 19): “You have to participate relentlessly in the manifestation of your own blessings,” says author Elizabeth Gilbert. I recommend that you experiment with this subversive idea, Aries. Just for a week, see what happens if you devote yourself to making yourself feel really good. I mean risk going to extremes as you pursue happiness with focused zeal. Try this: Draw up a list of experiences that you know will give you intense pleasure, and indulge in them all without apology. And please don’t fret about the possible consequences of getting crazed with joy. Be assured that the cosmos is providing you with more slack than usual. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): “I am not washed and beautiful, in control of a shining world in which everything fits,” writes Taurus author Annie Dillard, “but instead am wandering awed about on a splintered wreck I’ve come to care for, whose gnawed trees breathe a delicate air.” I recommend you try on her perspective for size. For now, just forget about scrambling after perfection. At least temporarily, surrender any longing you might have for smooth propriety. Be willing to live without neat containment and polite decorum. Instead, be easy and breezy. Feel a generous acceptance for the messy beauty you’re embedded in. Love your life exactly as it is, with all of its paradoxes and mysteries. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Studies show that when you’re driving a car, your safest speed is five miles per hour higher than the average rate of traffic. Faster than that, though, and the danger level rises. Traveling more slowly than everyone else on the road also increases your risk of having an accident. Applying these ideas metaphorically, I’d like to suggest you take a similar approach as you weave your way through life’s challenges in the coming week. Don’t dawdle and plod. Move a little swifter than everyone else, but don’t race along at a breakneck pace. CANCER (June 21-July 22): The key theme this week is relaxed intensification. Your assignment, should you choose to accept it, is to heighten and strengthen your devotion to things that are important to you -- but in ways that make you feel more serene and self-possessed. To accomplish this, you will have to ignore the conventional wisdom, which falsely asserts that going deeper and giving more of yourself require you to increase your stress levels. You do indeed have a great potential for going deeper and giving more of yourself, but only if you also become more at peace with yourself and more at home in the world. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Last year a young Nebraskan entrepreneur changed his name from Tyler Gold to Tyrannosaurus Rex Gold. He said it was a way of giving him greater name recognition as he worked to build his career. Do you have any interest in making a bold move like that, Leo? The coming weeks would be a good time for you to think about adding a new twist to your nickname or title or self-image. But I recommend something less sensationalistic and more in line with the qualities you’d actually like to cultivate in the future. I’m thinking of something like Laughing Tiger or Lucky Lion or Wily Wildcat. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): African-American jazz singer Billie Holiday was the great-granddaughter of a slave. By the time she was born in 1915, black people in the American South were no longer “owned” by white “masters,” but their predicament was still extreme. Racism was acute and debilitating. Here’s what Billie wrote in her autobiography: “You can be up to your boobies in white satin, with gardenias in your hair and no sugar cane for miles, but you can still be working on a plantation.” Nothing you experience is remotely as oppressive as what Billie experienced, Virgo. But I’m wondering if you might suffer from a milder version of it. Is any part of you oppressed and inhibited even though your outward circumstances are technically unconstrained? If so, now’s the time to push for more freedom.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): What resounding triumphs and subtle transformations have you accomplished since your last birthday? How have you grown and changed? Are there any ways you have dwindled or drooped? The next few weeks will be an excellent time to take inventory of these things. Your own evaluations will be most important, of course. You’ve got to be the ultimate judge of your own character. But you should also solicit the feedback of people you trust. They may be able to help you see clues you’ve missed. If, after weighing all the evidence, you decide you’re pleased with how your life has unfolded these past ten to eleven months, I suggest you celebrate your success. Throw yourself a party or buy yourself a reward or climb to the top of a mountain and unleash a victory cry. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Monmouth Park in New Jersey hosts regular horse races from May through November. During one such event in 2010, a horse named Thewifenoseeverything finished first, just ahead of another nag named Thewifedoesntknow. I suspect that there’ll be a comparable outcome in your life sometime soon. Revelation will trump secrecy. Whoever is hiding information will lose out to anyone who sees and expresses the truth. I advise you to bet on the option that’s forthcoming and communicative, not the one that’s furtive and withholding. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You have both a poetic and a cosmic license to stretch yourself further. It’s best not to go too far, of course. You should stop yourself before you obliterate all boundaries and break all taboos and smash all precedents. But you’ve certainly got the blessings of fate if you seek to disregard some boundaries and shatter some taboos and outgrow some precedents. While you’re at it, you might also want to shed a few pinched expectations and escape an irrelevant limitation or two. It’s time to get as big and brave and brazen as you dare. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): When I was 19, a thug shot me in the butt with a shotgun at close range. To this day, my body contains the 43 pellets he pumped into me. They have caused some minor health problems, and I’m always queasy when I see a gun. But I don’t experience any routine suffering from the wound. Its original impact no longer plagues me. What’s your own personal equivalent of my trauma, Capricorn? A sickness that racked you when you were young? A difficult break-up with your first love? The death of someone you cared about? Whatever it was, I suspect you now have the power to reach a new level of freedom from that old pain. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Want to take full advantage of the sexy vibes that are swirling around in your vicinity? One thing you could do is whisper the following provocations in the ear of anyone who would respond well to a dose of boisterous magic: 1) “Corrupt me with your raw purity, baby; beguile me with your raucous honesty.” 2) “I finally figured out that one of the keys to eternal happiness is to be easily amused. Want me to show you how that works?” 3) “I dare you to quench my thirst for spiritual sensuality.” 4) “Let’s trade clothes and pretend we’re each other’s higher selves.” PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Some people put their faith in religion or science or political ideologies. English novelist J.G. Ballard placed his faith elsewhere: in the imagination. “I believe in the power of the imagination to remake the world,” he wrote, “to release the truth within us, to hold back the night, to transcend death, to charm motorways, to ingratiate ourselves with birds, to enlist the confidences of madmen.” As you make your adjustments and reconfigure your plans, Pisces, I suggest you put your faith where Ballard did. Your imagination is far more potent and dynamic than you realize -- especially right now.
