Editor’s Note Seeing Green(er) in Providence Providence, we have a recycling problem. We have a lot of other problems, yes, but we can’t ignore this one anymore. Here’s the thing: we throw away just under a million dollars a year in penalties, fees and disposal of what should be perfectly good recyclables. Recyclables that would otherwise be earning us money. Considering the state of the City’s budget – we ran a $5,000,000 deficit last fiscal year – and the fact that the whispers of bankruptcy are becoming louder and louder by the day, we need to do something. Our cover story this
month addresses the city’s waste management issue. By simply trying a little bit harder to make our recyclables more, well, recyclable, we can all do a part to save the City money, and keep us away from a difficult alternative. It’s time to start seeing greener, Providence.

“I’m still a New Yorker at heart but I find Providence to be infinitely cooler than Boston, with all its eccentricities, weird history and charm.” Strong words from our writer and New York expat Charlotte Seley. This month, Charlotte previews the new literary reading series starting at Point Street Dueling Pianos (page 11). As she puts it, the series “aims to give a little diversity in voices and a unique flavor to the literary scene here in Providence, borrowing from many quirky, funky and fun NYC book events.” Charlotte, a self-proclaimed word nerd, has a particular soft spot for poetry and alliteration. “Writing contains two crucial elements that I’m always craving in excess: feeling and information,” she says. “I love that I am capable of both at any time.”

Monday just became the coolest night of your week. After 17 years of weekly performances at Boviâ€™s Tavern (RIP) in East Providence, the John Allmark Jazz Orchestra has set up shop at The Met. Read on to find out what the legendary band has in store for Pawtucket.

and the house band that had played for 20 years before them – Bovi’s had become a legendary local jazz venue. Luckily Rich Lupo was ready to offer the band refuge at The Met. “I’ve always thought the Met would be a good spot for [them],” say Rich, whose wife Sarah had enlisted John to play on her album a few years ago. “It’s a classic part of the Rhode Island
scene. We’re excited.” Every Monday will see the band playing two sets – the $8 admission is good for both – for all ages crowds. Down the road John is hoping to welcome guest performers like high school and college ensembles to open for the band, something he had done at Bovi’s and that the Lupos are excited to continue. “It will develop itself, it always has,”
John says. “The Met was the first place I thought would be a perfect fit. I think it’s going to sound awesome.” It absolutely does. Clear your Monday nights. This just might be the coolest show in town. Every Monday. All ages. Doors at 8pm, first show starts at 9pm. $8. 1005 Main Street, Pawtucket. Facebook.com/JohnAllmarkJazzOrchestra –Tony Pacitti
Art for the Birds A local artist looks to the skies for his latest project When Peter Green moved
into his downtown Providence apartment ten years ago he didn’t know it at the time that he picked the perfect place to pursue one of his passions: bird watching. “There was just a hawk a half hour ago outside my window chasing pigeons!” Peter excitedly divulged at the onset of our conversation. A graphic designer by trade and a photographer by choice, Peter decided to merge these two worlds together and create The Providence Raptors Landmark Collection.
Providence Monthly | March 2016
This new art project, which Peter launched at the close of 2015, “features the city’s most identifiable landmarks with the raptors that frequent them.” He “really wanted to do something bold and graphic,” and transformed this vision into striking artwork that is especially unique to our community because it “really only appeals to people in Providence.” He speaks to the novelty of his project, stressing the fascinating way in which the raptors have become a part of the cityscape: “The birds have been there longer than the landmarks,” he
says, “These birds are in the same spot they were 30 years ago. Different families and generations, but it’s [their territory].” His website is a nature-lover’s heaven, displaying scene-by-scene shots of magnificent birds in their urban habitat of downtown Providence. My personal favorite is a series of Ospreys clawing fish, flying through the sky and landing on a tree branch, which Green so cleverly captions “Table for 4 – B.Y.O.F. (Bring Your Own Fish).” ProvidenceRaptors.com/LandmarkCollection –Samantha Westmoreland

It was the Monday night after that first snowstorm in January, and through the crunching of snow under foot and the traffic on Main Street, the big, bright and brassy sounds of jazz were bleeding out from The Met. It had been six weeks since the John Allmark Jazz Orchestra played a gig. For a band that had a regular, weekly show for 17 years, six weeks is basically a lifetime. “In 25 years we’ve never had more than two weeks off,” says bandleader and trumpet player John Allmark. “Everyone’s ready to play again.” They sounded it. The band played their guts out and the packed crowd – stationed at tables and chairs set up across the usually empty venue floor – was hanging on every note. Despite the jarring start to their 25th year, the band was making a spectacular debut at their new weekly venue. News that their old home, Bovi’s Tavern in East Providence, was closing came with little warning, though John admits that it wasn’t entirely a surprise. Regardless of there being some writing on the wall, Bovi’s had been home for almost 20 years, and thanks to the John Allmark Jazz Orchestra –

Island’s literary scene. For 12 years, she has been the beloved bookworm and host of Reading With Robin, a weekly radio show on AM790 and I Heart Radio, and she is the organizer and curator of events across the Ocean State. However, Robin sees a wealth of untapped potential in our state’s tiny-yet-mighty Creative Capital and has big plans to elevate the city’s already thriving artistic presence. Beginning this month, Robin is hosting a free monthly reading series, aptly named Point Street Reading Series, featuring four traveling and local writers selected to share their work. The series will occur every third Tuesday of the month at its permanent home, Point Street Dueling Pianos, centrally located downtown at 3 Davol Square. “The natural setup of the stage and bars is exactly what I
had imagined we’d have at Point Street,” Robin said of Dueling Pianos, “and it’s… right in the heart of Providence.” Her inspiration for the series borrows from outside state lines, citing many long-standing and delightfully quirky NYC events such as the Franklin Park Reading Series and Pete’s Candy Store in Brooklyn and the KGB Bar Reading Series in Manhattan’s East Village. Robin aims to cultivate a similar enthusiasm, verve and literary eclecticism for Providence writers and artists. “I was immediately blown away by how many people were at a bar on a Monday night in the summer to hear a handful of authors read,” Robin commented on the Franklin Park Reading Series, hosted by Penina Roth, and sees no reason why Providence can’t foster a love for literature just as lively. “Point Street is
primarily inspired by the structure of these series, in that having the authors reading is the program’s focal point. I do, however, strive to create similar communities and followings that all three have been able to establish.” Point Street’s inaugural reading will feature literary luminaries Caroline Leavitt (author of 8 books including Is This Tomorrow and New York Times Bestseller Pictures of You), Howard Axelrod (author of the popular memoir, The Point of Vanishing), Rachel Cantor (author of the novel, Good on Paper), and Johnson & Wales professor, Tamara Valentine. March 15, 7:30pm. 3 Davol Square. Find Point Street Reading Series on Facebook or get in touch with Robin directly at Robin.ReadingWithRobin@gmail.com –Charlotte Seley

Hope and Hoops A new book documents one season in the life of a local basketball team Bill Reynolds has always found incredible stories and poignant poetry on local basketball courts. Throughout his career, the Providence Journal sportswriter has chronicled hoop dreams and courtside action from the iconic parquet floor of the Boston Garden (Rise of a Dynasty: The ’57 Celtics, the first Banner, and the Dawning of a New America) to the high school gymnasiums of Fall River (Fall River Dreams) to the old school stomping grounds of the Big East Conference (Big Hoops). To say he wrote the book on local b-ball sounds clichéd, but it’s literally true: in 2007 he published Our Game: The Story of New England Basketball, tracing the sport’s history from its creation in Springfield, MA in 1891 all the way through UConn’s twin men’s and women’s NCAA championships in 2004. His latest book hits a little closer to home.
Hope: A School, a Team, a Dream follows Hope High School’s Blue Wave through both the on- and off-court action of its 2012 season. Reynolds delves into the daily lives of Coach Dave Nyblom and his team, many of whom are either Liberian immigrants or the children of them, and are still grappling with the scars of the country’s civil war. It’s a story that takes place at our city’s frayed edges – as Bill notes, “The Providence of sirens and gunshots in the night, of kids who live in fear, of gritty streets where there are too many drugs, too many gangs, too many guns and too little hope that it’s going to change anytime soon.” The aging school itself becomes as much a character as the players and coaches, a shadow of its former glory

languishing mere blocks from some of our city’s most elite educational institutions. In one basketball season, Reynolds finds a glimpse into a side of our city few of us see or choose to acknowledge on a daily basis, and into the lives of those who struggle and persevere there.

Head Strong Brain Week explores the mysteries of biology’s final frontier The late neurologist, author and moonlighting mystic, Oliver Sacks, once perfectly captured the relevance of understanding the paradoxes of the human brain: “In examining disease, we gain wisdom about anatomy and physiology and biology. In examining the person with disease, we gain wisdom about life.” The intersection of modern brain research, Western psychiatry and even sociology inherently marries the clinical with the idiosyncratic human experience, boldly delving into the brain as “the final frontier” so that we can live our best lives possible. In kind, a Providencebased national advocacy organiza-
tion for mental illness, Cure Alliance for Mental Illness, in tandem with the Brown Institute for Brain Sciences and the Norman Prince Neurosciences Institute, will host Rhode Island’s firstever Brain Week from March 12-20 in order to raise Rhody awareness on the importance of brain research and its critical role in helping people lead healthier and more productive lives. “We understand a great deal about our bodies and the world around us, but the workings of the brain are still an unsolved riddle,” says Karina Holyoak Wood of Rhode Island Brain Week. The Ocean State has proven to be a nexus of progressive brain
and mental illness research, part and parcel to the development of the Brown Institute for Brain Science, the Norman Prince Institute at RI Hospital and top-tier treatment facilities like Bradley and Butler Hospitals. “Exploring the ‘final frontier’ of human biology has the potential to fuel the economic engines that will help drive Rhode Island forward in the next decades,” adds Karina. But the desired outcome of Brain Week is trained on engaging and impacting the community at large, not just the world of academia, and it’s offering fun, accessible family-friendly programming, accordingly.
“The Brain Fair [on March 19] will feature exhibits and hands-on activities that showcase everything from neurons and brains, to explorations into the human psyche,” says Karina. “Children and young people will have the opportunity to interact with junior and senior researchers and ask them about their career paths and choices. We want them to leave with a sense of curiosity about the brain so that they might become inspired to become part of Rhode Island’s next generation of neuroscientists.” Rhode Island Brain Week, March 12-20.

He Was Providence Had H.P. Lovecraft
not already claimed the words “I am Providence,” they would have served as a fitting epitaph for Buddy Cianci. All arguments about his, shall we say, complicated past aside, we would be remiss if we here at Providence Monthly didn’t take a moment to at least acknowledge his life and legacy. Until his death on January 28, he was arguably the most famous living Rhode Islander and his influence on this city, though open to debate, was unmistakable. Buddy was a man of immeasurable political acumen and brilliant vision, but also one who too often let the dark side of his nature dictate his actions – a duality that defined him. For every person with a horror story about his corruption or vindictiveness, there is someone else with a tale of his generosity or kindness. He was quick to claim total credit for Providence’s progress during his administration, yet unwilling to admit any culpability for the bad things that happened under him. To hear Buddy tell it, the mall, the moving of the rivers, WaterFire and the “Providence Renaissance,” were all his
Providence Monthly | March 2016
exclusive doing, but the corruption and graft in City Hall were due to a few bad seeds, and the ballooning pension system and mounting deficits were someone else’s fault, too. During his 2014 campaign he was eager to relive the past when it made him look good, yet so quick to steer the conversation towards the future when questions were raised. Generations of Rhode Islanders both loved and loathed him, and we’re likely to be debating his legacy for generations more. My own feelings on him were similarly complicated. I grew up revering him as a folk hero, then worked against his reelection in 2014. Even then, I never shared my colleagues’ unequivocal disdain for him; I simply believed that the time for his way of doing things, if it ever existed, had long since passed. Many of his most vociferous critics, or at least those with whom I had conversations, did not arrive in Providence until after he left office, or were too young to remember it, and they always seemed unable to grasp why anyone would revere the man. All they knew of him was what they had read in the
papers, or in The Prince of Providence, or the stories they’d heard at parties. All of it was probably true, too, but there is a complexity to that truth that must be understood. There is an inherent clannishness in our city’s character that often causes us to say, “Sure, he was a crook – but he was our crook.” Buddy’s claims of credit for the “renaissance,” while not entirely unfounded, were a self-aggrandizing oversimplification. A great many concerned citizens and civic leaders pitched in to move those rivers. But Buddy was the one who made us believe in a renaissance – that was the part his critics never quite seemed to grasp. Growing up in the ‘80s and ‘90s, I, like many others, had the sense that this city was not a place of any significance, that it was in irreversible decline, that there was no pride in saying you were from Providence. What Buddy did better than anyone else was to change that perception through sheer force of will and personality. He was Providence’s biggest, loudest, most aggressive cheerleader. Buddy forced the rest of the country to pay attention to what
was happening here. He convinced us that there was pride in being from Providence. For that, despite all his faults, he deserves recognition and remembrance. –John Taraborelli
