In response to last week’s feature about the 25th anniversary of DJ Jazzy Jeff and Will Smith’s He’s the DJ, I’m the Rapper:
JiM sMiTh via phillynow.com
Awesome article! I grew up in the ‘Golden Era’ of hip-hop, and I remember being tuned into the radio on Friday nights (they only played rap on Friday nights between 8 p.m. and midnight in Atlanta back then) to record Jazzy Jeff. Then I would try to emulate his scratching on my Technics 1200s. I think Will and Jeff did a great job at the time of helping to globalize hiphop that they don’t get enough credit for. Great job.

The 1984 sci-fi classic The Philadelphia Experiment is being screened at the Cinedelphia Film Festival.
WHAT’S HAPPENING — BEFORE IT HAPPENS ... SCREEN
Cinedelphia Film Festival
Featuring 40 programs and almost 100 screenings at theaters throughout the city and greater Philadelphia area, the Cinedelphia Film Festival was created three years ago to—you guessed from the name, right?—showcase films related to the City of Brotherly Love. For the next threeplus weeks, local cinephiles can expect to see not only documentaries, new films from around the world and cult classics, but also be part of a number of wonderfully weird parties going on around the city at which to watch said movies. Like, say, an ‘80s shindig at PhilaMOCA coinciding with a horror movie double-feature: Blades and Girls School Screamers, both grindhouse flicks about, respectively, lawnmower mutilation and girls hunted down in a remote house. Or there’s the 1991 crime thriller Point Break, directed by Kathryn Bigelow and starring Patrick Swayze and Keanu Reeves, which will feature accompanying surf rock music from the White Caps. Oh, and remember 1984’s The Philadelphia Experiment, about time travel and a boat that can’t be picked up via radar? There’ll be a screening of that flick at the Independence Seaport Museum with guest speaker Paul Malmont, author of The Chinatown Death Cloud Peril, Jack London in Paradise, DC Comics’ Doc Savage, and The Astounding, The Amazing and The Unknown. It’s in honor of the alleged real-life Philadelphia Experiment’s 70th anniversary of when, in 1943, the U.S. Navy supposedly conducted a series of tests that attempted to make allied ships invisible to radar, the results of which were never made public—or even acknowledged. (The Navy says its records “have been repeatedly searched, but no documents have been located which confirm the event, or any interest by the Navy in attempting such an achievement.”) Not unlike many of Hollywood’s creations, The Philadelphia Experiment capitalized on both the conspiracy theories and the secrecy of the American government, resulting in a sci-fi classic. Be sure to check that out on April 21. / RANDY LOBASSO Thurs., April 4 through April 27. Various times. Free-$22.50. Various venues. cinedelphia.com

Thursday, April 4 ART
Outside Sound While leading a music-intensive workshop at a vocational art program for people with developmental/intellectual disabilities back in the summer of 2011, local composer and musician Chris Coyle couldn’t help but be inspired by the artwork he saw being made there. With the assistance of the center’s dedicated staff of professional artists, the disabled participants were unabashedly expressing themselves in ways they normally wouldn’t get to, creating everything from plaster sculptures and ceramic pieces to paintings and stop-motion videos. It was then that he came up with the concept behind Outside Sound, a mix-media project that takes this artwork and sets it to original music, elevating the voices of the creative individuals behind them while creating a unique and meaningful art experience for audiences. Having spent the past two years working with the disabled participants of three area art programs, the project will all culminate with this public concert/gallery event. To ensure that the final presentation was a true reflection of their experiences and eccentricities, Coyle collaborated with each of the participating artists whenever possible, allowing their own thought processes to influence the musical compositions. All of the featured artwork will be available for sale, and whether humorous, uplifting or dark, all serve as a reminder of how powerful a tool art can be. Proceeds from ticket sales will go directly to the three participating art programs, allowing this tool to continue to be utilized. / NICOLE FINKBINER 7pm. $10.

Meek Mill Meek Mill’s path to success hasn’t been a smooth and straight ride. A handful of years back, the rapper got signed by T.I., but before anything could come out, he got arrested and sent to the slammer for eight months. Then last November, on the night of his album listening party, the supersuccessful Dreams & Nightmares, he was detained by police but released. It still made headlines and put the brakes on a big tour, guaranteeing local dates from the Maybach Music Group emcee for a bit. If that wasn’t enough, last month, his name came up in the shooting incident outside of French Montana’s hotel on Columbus Avenue. Meek was on the bus, but it turns out it was more of a fanon-fan incident. The brother either can’t catch a break or isn’t trying very hard. But hey, dude’s been winning: Puma signed him on as a brand ambassador, his big non-mixtape album debut put him high on Billboard charts, and he sold nearly 300,000 copies in the first two weeks. When he got signed by Rick Ross alongside Wale, he was ushered into a boys’ club of which he’s certainly taken advantage, collaborating with artists that orbit in Ross’ universe, like 2 Chainz, Drake, John Legend and Mary J. Blige. No one can deny the success of anthems like “Amen,” “House Party” (with Young Chris) and “Young & Gettin’ It.” And tonight, the Tower Theater’s sure to be packed with proud fans who love what Meek brings to the Philly hip-hop game: commercial and critical success that puts him in the family of the Roots, Beanie Sigel and Freeway. / BILL CHENEVERT

Le Viet Turns Three While three years might not seem like a long time, it is when you’re a new Vietnamese restaurant competing against 30 other Vietnamese restaurants inside the same seedy Bella Vista strip mall to keep your doors open in a recession. Luckily, Le Viet has managed to set itself apart from all the surrounding family-owned joints with its upscale, contemporary décor and sophisticated menu of some 80-plus eats. Perhaps most notable is its expansive selection of appetizers—staples like spring rolls, soups and salads, but with a unique twist. Anyway, since they never would have been able to reach this milestone without the support of all you pho-lovin’ mofos out there, Chef Sinh Cao wants to say thanks. And he’s going to do it by feeding you a cheap-ass lunch. From 11 a.m-3 p.m., Le Viet will be serving up bowls of their Special Pho* and Chicken Pho* for just * Not actual Le Viet pho. Theirs is better! $3.33, while a cold glass of their Thai iced tea will run you just two bucks. So, in all, you’re looking at about a $6 meal. That’s quite the bargain, folks. Hell, even at that shitty hole-in-the-wall Chinese place down the block, six bucks is only about enough to get you a pint of chicken fried rice and two Trojans. / N.F. 11am.

Oscar Wilde originally wrote this one-act tragedy in French, perhaps because it was banned in England since it was illegal to perform plays that depict Biblical characters on stage. Translated into English by the Lord Alfred Douglas in 1893, this seductive play centers around the obsessive virginal Salome, the step daughter of Herod Antipater, who takes pleasure in destroying men like John the Baptist.

Singer-songwriter Alice Smith once claimed in an interview, “The ladies love me … because I’m sexy.” We’ll give her that. But her music’s pretty fetching, too, and she’ll be hitting the Tin Angel to showcase some of her R&B/jazz-inspired tunes off her justreleased album She, her first in six years. Armed with a four-octave range, Smith’s uniquely orchestrated pop is widely appreciated by both high- and low-brow critics alike. The New York Times recently said there’s an “audacious naturalness” to her sophomore LP, whose songs “ponder affection and honesty, desire and independence, rightly confident that their modesty makes them all the more approachable.” Smith, who is married to fellow singer-songwriter Citizen Cope, released her debut in 2007, the acclaimed For Lovers, Dreamers & Me, which featured the lush, soulful Grammy-nominated “Dream.” She was called the next big thing at the time—perhaps the next Alicia Keys or Norah Jones, instead of just like them—but “then,” as the Associated Press puts it, “silence.” Part of that silence had to do with she and her husband welcoming their first child, a daughter, and the inevitable backroom record-label legal drama. Music enthusiasts say her new album shows the promise of For Lovers is still there—though fans could probably stand for less of a hiatus next time. / R.L. 7:30pm. $18. Tin Angel. 20 S.

Timon is the only Shakespearean protagonist who does not have any romantic attachments or family relations, but what he does have is money, and lots of it.

Johnny Popcorn Hezekiah Davis is a self-proclaimed “sarcastic asshole,” and he got it from his funk-punk parents, who raised him in West Chester and Delaware. The comrade-in-arms of other Philly nu-soul giants like Bilal, Kindred the Family Soul and Musiq Soulchild, as Hezekiah, he’s more of an emcee, but on this new project, one he’s been working on for a couple years, he sings. And you know what? Dude’s got pipes. They’re not Bilal-level pipes, no, but the transition from rapper to funk and soul-spiked hip-hop band leader has not been unfriendly to the West Philadelphian. Davis’ collaboration with Tone Whitfield, a bass specialist and producer with a healthy pedigree of his own, and soulstress Marjani Clark for last year’s The Crow yielded a new and fresh voice in Philadelphia music. The first single, “Hello to the Bad Guy,” is a snare-propelled and grimy guitar-driven track that hoists Hez’s plaintive, questioning tone above the fray. Meanwhile, the puppet-heavy video behind “Next Episode,” a pretty piano-backed insult track about an ex who he’s “through” with, is sultry, groovy and down-to-earth. “At least we tried, ya know?” he asks. His emulation of Gil ScottHeron and Grace Jones is not lost in these songs. He brings that classic Philly-flavored soul to this new project. And he and his supporting crew play the middle opening set for Smokey Robotic tonight, channeling the likes of Erykah Badu and Mos Def. / B.C. 8pm. $8-$12. With Smokey Robotic + Kokayi.

After three rounds of elimination, it’s all come down to the final face-off: legendary comedian, author and education activist BILL COSBY vs. pioneering punk rocker and satirical writer RODNEY ANONYMOUS.

ew would have imagined eight years ago that the then-newly-elected Bill Cosby would put in a full two terms as mayor of Philadelphia. He was 78 years old when he first took office in January 2016—an age we associate more with retirement from political life than inauguration into it. But having reluctantly taken up the gauntlet first thrown down by Philadelphia residents in a newspaper poll naming him the dark-horse candidate they’d most like to see tackle City Hall, Cosby accepted the inevitable reality that a single four-year term would barely allow him to start scratching the job’s surface. That was especially true given Cosby’s particular mandate: He became mayor to change the way Philly educates its kids. That was it. All other issues were secondary. Education was both his own lifelong cause and the city’s most systemic dysfunction. And having a real impact on just that one area would be an uphill battle the whole way. The Cosby administration made a controversial decision early on: Rather than sink years of time and resources into struggling with the state’s School Reform Commission over intractable budget and management issues in the schools, the city would focus almost exclusively on developing new extracurricular support networks through collaboration between several entities—particularly, the Office of Civic Engagement, the Office of Faith-Based Initiatives and the Office of Arts, Culture and the Creative Economy. (As if there was ever any doubt that Cosby’s entertainment-industry connections would lead to a robust beefing up of the latter.) Negotiating the future of the city’s children with budget-cutting Harrisburg legislators would never be the ultimate answer to our endemic education woes, Cosby felt. “We saw what happened in New Orleans when people waited for the government to help,” he said in his mayoral acceptance speech, quoting from his own book Come On, People. “Governments don’t care. People care, and no people care like parents and grandparents do.” Springboarding off the school district’s existing Parent University program, which had begun offering life-skills training to Philadelphia families, Cosby wielded his star power to pull together an unorthodox array of partnerships across several specific initiatives. His administration identified three as particularly key to supporting generational improvement in education: Detoxified media. Establishing a shared Philly-kid-friendly vision among the city’s community TV channels—including PhillyCAM, Temple’s TUTV and Drexel’s DUTV— Cosby worked to seriously enhance the production values of all three, winning massive
donations of equipment and training from Hollywood studios. The arts & culture office then kicked off a five-year plan to incubate high-quality, nonviolent entertainment, educational and music programming aimed at a wide array of age groups. The “Whup Yourself” campaign. Cosby’s approach to stemming Philadelphia’s egregious violence statistics was a longterm one that started at the root. “The most important thing people can do to cut down violence in America,” he said, “is to cut out the physical punishment of children.” Citing research showing a correlation between the early-childhood example of corporal punishment and tendencies to act violently later in life, the mayor took action: Pairing local celebrities with a grassroots infrastructure of church volunteers and neighborhood groups, the Cosby administration flooded Philadelphia communities with an ongoing campaign to help parents learn why not to discipline their children by hitting them. Investment in mental health services. Countless student behavioral problems, Cosby argued, could be stemmed by ensuring families in every community access to, and encouragement toward, robust mental health resources—pointing both parents and kids toward well-trained counselors without fear of either social stigma or health-care costs. While no one disputed the principle, the administration’s plan to redirect substantial funds from city pensions to family counseling services was hotly contested. All these initiatives will be decades in the proving; as significant as Mayor Cosby’s eightyear tenure has been, it still doesn’t give us enough time to know how his work will ultimately play out. And certainly we know not all Cosby’s initiatives paid off at all. Memorably, his attempt to garner charitable funding for school nutrition programs by calling in some old Jell-O-era favors from his contacts at Kraft Foods ran aground of protests from progressive agriculture activists. Meanwhile, his single-minded focus on education and parenting initiatives to the exclusion of all else led to deterioration in the city’s relationships with numerous interest groups, from labor unions to corporate contractors. Of one thing we can be sure: If Mayor Cosby didn’t improve life for people in Philadelphia, it wasn’t for lack of trying.

Philadelphians expected some kinks needed to be worked out as he got used to being in office. They were right. “When I first heard a musician was going to be mayor, I thought it sounded like fun,” tweeted Councilman Jim Kenney last week, or the company he hired to tweet for him for $29,000 a year. “But it was just one problem after another—not unlike ‘Cocky Girl Problems,’ an account I follow on Twitter, and, sometimes, weirdly reply to.” Anonymous—a humorist and occasional City Paper columnist—was first called to serve his city as a nominee in PW’s “Mayor Madness” poll. Lacking the funds to run a seasoned campaign, he instead took to Twitter to lay out his agenda, which Philadelphians took as a series of common-sense proposals. “When I’m Mayor, the min. wage in Philly will be $12/hr. Anyone who objects will be free to work for less,” he wrote on March 28, 2013, noting his belief in a progressive platform that promised higher wages for our poorest workers. It was a promise he kept, which Council was more than happy to hand him. (Even if it was later voided by a presidential order.) His campaign seemed surprisingly eager to tackle head-on the deepest fringe of Philadelphia’s Internet chatter class: those who’d been banned from Philly.com’s comments section and had to resort to Craigslist’s Rants and Raves. Most notable amongst them: Holocaust-deniers, preppers, pro-lifers and anti-gay zealots. “When I’m Mayor, April will be officially designated “Punch a Holocaust-Denier in the Face Month,’” Anonymous wrote—and, indeed, after his surprise electoral victory in 2015, an executive order made it just that. Unfortunately for the few punk rockers left in Philadelphia who were cracking their knuckles and ready for an old-fashioned Reagan Youth night out, Holocaust-denying isn’t really alive in most social circles anymore and is very rarely mentioned in public. Anonymous’ order, while well-intentioned, led to random acts of violence in places where people seemed to care: white neighborhoods. That, combined with a misreading of his band’s 1990 tune, “If You Love Somebody, Set Them On Fire”—an eighth of city residents aged 30-55 remain widowed, according to a recent Pew report—got his mayorship off to a rough start. It only got worse from there. While Anonymous’ other Twitter proposals sounded common-sense—“people who are preparing for the End of the World will have to do so quietly in their basements”; “not only will abortion continue to be safe & legal, but will also be available via drive-thru”; “not only will samesex marriage be legal, but homosexuality will be a PE option”—enacting them proved difficult. Several executive orders he attempted to push though were met with lawsuits from special-interest groups on the left and right alike.
“It’s every American’s right to prepare for the end of the world in public,” said John Steinberger, spokesperson for the Pennsylvania ACLU. “I mean, I guess it makes more sense to watch Alex Jones YouTube videos and post on 4chan in private, and probably in a basement, but in any case, we can’t force people to do that.” The American Family Association of Pennsylvania chained themselves to the Checkers at Broad and Girard when construction began on the building’s new drive-through women’s health center on Aug. 16, 2016. “Chaining yourself to a building is usually an obvious invitation for pepper spray,” said a police spokesman. “But when we found out the reason, I’ve got to say, officers on the scene shuddered a little. I mean, how does a drive-through abortion even work? We thought it sounded dangerous.” Still, Anonymous’ tenure seemed to strike a chord with the city’s children. His “I’ve Got Nutrition” program eclipsed the good done by former mayor Michael Nutter’s Get Healthy Philly—and with few casualties. “While we can’t endorse letting children dodge traffic at Broad and South,” said Dr. Nadia Gupta of Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, “well, actually, never mind. We just can’t endorse it. I can’t believe that’s the whole thing. Letting kids run around in the streets and dodge traffic? What the fuck.” The program was combined with an “I Give a Shit About What I Put Into My Mouth” corner-store initiative, in which local grocery stores replaced hot Cheetos with wasabi peas, a healthier and more uncomfortable option. Several pie charts and graphs were made by city news organizations to show the amount of weight kids lost over the last four years and how long it took kids to eat a bag of wasabi peas compared to a bag of Cheetos. So is Philadelphia a different place today than when Anonymous came into office? Probably. There’s certainly less love going around, though singles bars and online dating sites have helped pull the city out of the second Great Recession, begun after President Rand Paul tried to put the country back on the gold standard. The housing market is on the rise for the first time since 2016, due to post-fire rebuilding. (PW has learned that several news organizations are preparing graphs to show the housing market rise.) “I’m just glad we didn’t vote Bill Cosby in,” Anonymous said today. “That guy is fucking nuts.”

Nicole develops a new appreciation for ground meat at Mt. Airy’s Goat Hollow.
This is Real Ginger Ale
By Nicole Finkbiner // firstname.lastname@example.org
hile I’m sure my German ancestors are rolling over in their graves, I gotta say, I’m really not a big fan of sausage. Bratwurst, liverwurst, salami, kielbasa—there’s just something about smelly, phallic-shaped mystery meat that instinctively makes my stomach turn. But if that mystery meat happens to be infused with an intense blend of Moroccan spices and disguised as a burger, well then, sign me up! As soon I arrived at Mt. Airy’s new bar and brasserie Goat Hollow, Chef Adam Glickman made sure to dispel any mystery about their Merguez Sausage Sandwich, namely, whether or not it contained any goat meat. After assuring me that the restaurant’s menu was actually 100-percent goat-free, he explained that we’d be making the sausage from a mix of lamb leg, lamb loin and lamb tenderloin. Having only had a half-cup of coffee in me at that point, I’m glad Adam assigned me the task of measuring our array of seasonings, the combined aroma of which could have easily awoken someone from a coma. Setting aside the cilantro, garlic and cayenne pepper, we then toasted them on the stove for a few minutes. Whatever you do, don’t make the mistake of toasting cayenne pepper. “If that burns, you’ll be running out of here crying,” Adam said. Though I was secretly hoping that there might be some sort of machine that was going to blend the spices into the meat, once Adam handed me a pair of gloves, I knew I was that machine. And so, like a good student, I rolled up my sleeves and dug into the bowl of lamb bits. “Just smush it in,” Adam instructed. “Pretend it’s Play-Doh.” No problem—I’d much rather visualize Play-Doh than Lamb Chop’s limbs and loins. Yet, it wasn’t until I was pressing the meat through a circular, cookie-cutter like contraption to form the perfect patty that the Play-Doh comparison really hit me. Suddenly, my mind was reeling over all the meat-molding possibilities: I could have star-shaped sausage! Sausage squares! For the holidays, I could serve little sausage snowflakes and snowmen! In fear of ridicule, I opted to keep these thoughts to myself and tried to come up with a more pertinent question, like whether this sausage would make for good meatballs.
“Pretend it’s Play-Doh”: Nicole dives into ground lamb with Goat Hollow Chef Adam Glickman. (Photo by J.R. Blackwell)
“Oh my God, yes,” Adam says. Turns out, you’ve got a few different options with Merguez. It can be grilled or panseared; cooked medium rare or well-done; made with either beef or lamb (Adam notes that the beef would be “less gamier tasting” than the lamb, whatever the hell that means). Regardless of what you make the sausage with or how you choose to cook it, Adam stresses that what’s most important is that you allow it to sit for a few minutes “so that the juices get absorbed back in the meat.” He’s not kidding—there was so much juice, it was literally oozing from the center of the patties like a volcano. Leering at the erupting slabs of meat, I wanted nothing more than to grab a knife and fork and dig in right then and there. But first, the sandwich had to be topped with two of Adam’s special homemade sauces: Goat mayo (mayo mixed with their special seasoned salt) and a dill-mint yogurt sauce (Greek yogurt mixed with fresh herbs). Note: No goats are milked in the making of their “goat” sauces. If you have a bottle of regular ol’ Hellman’s in your fridge, that’ll do, too. Finally, after what felt like three hours, I found myself inside the restaurant’s industrial-chic upstairs dining room with Lamb Chop in my mitts. As I chowed down, there
was only one thing going through my mind: Ho-ly shit. I seriously didn’t know whether to eat the sandwich or bow down and pray to it. Given that there were about 30 different flavors hitting my palate with each bite, I really couldn’t decipher which ones were from the sauces or from the sausage itself. But there was certainly no missing the paprika or cayenne. Having come with a side of the restaurant’s exceptional pomme frites and goat remoulade dip, I was shoveling them into my mouth by the handful just to soothe my taste buds. They were also the kind of fries that are so good, you can’t help but eat them like a ravenous beast—ya know, like movie theater popcorn. While I can’t say that I’ve been suddenly moved to eat Bratwurst—or to even snap into a Slim Jim, for that matter—the experience definitely taught me a few things. For starters, I really need to try some more Mediterranean cuisine. I’ve also come to realize that it might be time for me to spice up my spice collection, which currently only includes salt, pepper and oregano. Finally, and perhaps most importantly, I learned that playing with ground meat can be fun. Join the kitchen fun!

or all the focus on craft brews, and the ever-increasing range of beer styles that Philadelphians have access to, ginger beer has, for the most part, been left out of the discussion. And no wonder: Most of the bottles you’ll find are either (a) nonalcoholic or (b) not very good. So when Growler’s in Bella Vista hosted a Crabbie’s ginger beer dinner two weeks ago, I was intrigued. For a relatively new bar and restaurant, inviting members of the local media to sample a four-course menu designed specifically to either pair with or incorporate ginger beer was a gutsy move. From what I’ve heard, however, it was an unabashed success. (I was out of town that night and couldn’t make it.) Last week, then, in order to see for myself what made Crabbie’s so different from so many other cloying versions of ginger beer, I stopped by Growler’s to check it out. On its own, Crabbie’s is a very well-made product, an unexpectedly elegant sipper whose sweetness is cut by a sense of spice at the end. On ice with a slice of lime, as the producers recommend, it’s exceptionally refreshing. Chef Jerry Donohue used it at the dinner to marinate chicken for a jerk/satay preparation. He also amped up a ginger barbecue sauce for the excellent pulled pork. It was paired with a ginger Brussels sprouts dish that’s become a hit on the regular menu as well, and with a fruit “sushi roll” dessert. Growler’s owner Jay Willard, however, is not content to simply let Crabbie’s stand alone. He’s using it in his rum-based Dark and Stormy, as well as his vodka-based Moscow Mule. And he recently developed a phenomenal cocktail called Rye of the Storm, a riff on an Old Fashioned with Old Overholt rye, Angostura bitters, Crabbie’s ginger beer and lime zest. After the first sip, it immediately became apparent that it will be one of my go-to cocktails this summer: smoky, spicy, layered and refreshing all once. It’s time we all re-think our collective aversion to ginger beer—at least to the good stuff. And Growler’s is the perfect place to start that process. / BRIAN FREEDMAN

Writing Gone Wrong Directed with warmth and swift pacing, Theresa Rebeck’s Seminar explores the cruelties of the creative process. By J. Cooper Robb // email@example.com
he Philadelphia Theatre Company is back on sure footing with Seminar, a splendid production of Theresa Rebeck’s accomplished drama about love and literature. Set in a swanky apartment on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, the play focuses on a small writing class. The four students—two men and two women—are all in their mid- to late 20s, and they’re an interesting lot. Douglas (played by the always entertaining Luigi Sottile) is the most promising of the group. His uncle was a celebrated writer, and the family name, combined with his modicum of talent, has led to several of his pieces being published. In Sottile’s portrayal, Douglas is also the most amusing of the quartet, particularly at the play’s outset, when, in a wonderfully pompous speech, he bemoans the various writing workshops he’s attended. His general grandiosity—aimed at masking his insecurities on everything from writing to women—has made him an enemy of the other male student, Martin (Matt Harrington). Unlike Douglas, the nebbish Martin wears his self-doubt on his sleeve, refusing to let anyway see his work despite the small fortune he’s paid for the class. Adding to the rift between Douglas and Martin is the fact that they are rivals for the affections of Izzy (Teresa Avia Lim), who, clad in a succession of revealing outfits, uses her beauty to manipulate not only her male classmates, but their lecherous instructor as well. The final member of the quartet is Kate (an immensely likeable Genevieve Perrier), the most down-to-earth scribe in the mix, who also hosts the group in her spacious abode—which, we’re told, has been in her family for years and, despite its nine rooms and ritzy address, costs only $800 per month in rent. By far the choicest role in Seminar, however, belongs to the spectacular Rufus Collins, who portrays Leonard, the class’ despotic in-
structor. Each of his students has laid out a hefty sum—$5,000 for a 10-week session—for the privilege of having Leonard read their work, and his ruthlessly honest critiques are brutal, hurtful, misogynistic and yet often extremely amusing. Expertly directed by Scott Schwartz with both warmth and a swift sense of pacing, the characters are clearly defined not only by Rebeck’s script and the actors’ actions, but also by costume designer Alejo Vietti, whose choice of attire for each character tells us almost as much about them as the words they say. Seminar isn’t a perfect play. Though it has a number of clever surprises, there are other revelations that we see coming from a mile away. And while Kate and especially Leonard are wonderfully complicated, enigmatic characters that often defy our expectations, the other three unfortunately lack the same depth and fascination. An intimate and thoughtful exploration of writers and the almost-impossible task of getting their work published, Seminar will undoubtedly be enjoyed by fans of the Rebeck-created NBC television show Smash. Like Smash—which offers a dramatized behindthe-scenes look at commercial theater—in Seminar, Rebeck lays bare the creative process and the cruelties associated with it. “As a writer, I have always considered it my job to describe the world as I know it; to struggle toward whatever portion of the truth is available to me,” she quotes on the first page of her website. Rebeck’s Seminar presents us with her truth about the publishing business, and in doing so, convinces us that writing, like life, is not for the faint of heart. Through April 14. $46-$59.

Gimme the Loot Will Steal Your Heart Writer-director Adam Leon’s deceptively modest marvel proves that big things come in small packages. By Sean Burns // firstname.lastname@example.org
One Dysfunctional Family Why’s this splattery 2003 curiosity getting a midnight revival?
ult horror director Jim VanBebber’s splattery 2003 curiosity The Manson Family gets a midnight revival this weekend for reasons that still escape me, so I’m choosing to just pretend it’s some sort of punk rock answer to Jurassic Park 3D. One of those movies that’s way more interesting to read and talk about than it is to actually watch, VanBebber’s notorious bloodbath was a 15-year labor of love—if one can use such a word in this grisly context—that toured festivals in various unfinished forms rallying completion funds from fans. Guess that’s what you had to do before they invented Kickstarter. Initially framed as a documentary made by a crass true-crime TV host (Carl Day), The Manson Family doesn’t stick to a single format for very long. Testimonials from actors playing Charlie’s angels are intercut with often jaw-droppingly stilted re-creations of the clan’s acid fueled idyll, with nonstop, exceedingly graphic orgies shot in period-specific zoom-crazy jump-cuts. The underground editing and porn-level performances have the stank of exploitation from another era, which was probably a lot more novel 10 years ago before stuff like Grindhouse became an unbearable affectation for an entire generation of filmmakers. And then there are the killings. Good lord, the killings. VanBebber could never be accused of skimping on stabbings, as the incessant puncturing of knives into flesh becomes an aural symphony I wish I’d never heard. There’s a mulish integrity in the sheer length of screen time devoted to these murders. Is VanBebber forcing us to confront the grisly forensic facts of a case so famous, we’ve all grown desensitized to the details? Or is he just getting off on it? More interesting are cutaways to a modern day army of Goth psychopaths doling out bloody desserts for those who dare exploit the Manson legacy by wearing kitschy T-shirts or airing the documentary we’ve ostensibly just been watching. Again, it’s hard to figure quite where VanBebber is going with this particular provocation. Is he questioning our complicity in the celebrity afforded to monsters? Or is he, again, just getting off on it? Ironic postscript: After Van Bebber’s epic struggle to get The Manson Family finished and shown in theaters, a scant two years later, Rob Zombie came along with The Devil’s Rejects, which is basically the same movie, except eight billion times better.

he most purely enjoyable movie I’ve seen since I-can’t-remember-when, writer-director Adam Leon’s debut feature Gimme the Loot is a tiny miracle—a film brimming with so much mischief and joy that it left me in an almost insufferably good mood for days afterwards. This deceptively modest marvel proves that big things can sometimes come in small packages. It’s a warm and wonderfully human comedy that has a lot to say without ever making a big deal out of saying anything at all. Ty Hickson and Tashiana Washington star as Malcolm and Sofia, teenage graffiti artists from the Bronx who are sick and tired of being dissed by a rival Queens gang full of Mets fans. Their dream is to get even by tagging the stupid red apple that pops up every time a home run is scored at Citi Field—which everybody in the film quite hilariously and appropriately still insists on calling Shea Stadium. We learn quickly at the outset that “bombing the apple” has been a holy grail for graffiti artists pretty much since spray paint was invented. But Malcolm has a plan. (Malcolm has a lot of plans.) He knows a guy who works security and will let them in the ballpark after hours. Dude just wants $500 for his troubles. Aye, there’s the rub. So begins a loosey-goosey series of harebrained schemes and misadventures in petty crime, spanning several boroughs of a New York City that feels like the world’s grittiest playground. Every corner here is bustling with life, chock full of classic N.Y.C. eccentrics bending your ear with oddball conversations dithering hither and yon. Gimme the Loot won me over early, when a lonely pot courier (Sam Soghor, one of the film’s producers) waxes melancholic about how back in the ‘90s, you never saw men wearing flipflops. At least not in New York. Malcolm and Sofia like to insist their relationship is strictly professional, and it’s a running joke how these two are the only people in the movie who can’t

see that they’re crazy about each other. Hickson and Washington are a terrific screen couple. Malcolm’s all easygoing swagger, his head in the clouds, often blissfully unencumbered by reflection. Sofia’s feisty, with a mouth like a truck driver. She may look like a little girl playing in a big boy’s game, but wait until you see how she handles the kid who stole her bike. Stealing, dealing and grifting is just a fact of life here, and I can already hear some of my stodgier colleagues clucking their tongues about glamorizing kid criminals or whatever gets one’s morality panties in a bunch this week. But such a lame approach does a severe disservice to what Leon has accomplished here, as Gimme the Loot is nothing if not expertly attuned to the realities of socioeconomic disparity; the film just chooses to entertain instead of preach. Take, for instance, a wonderful scene in which Malcolm delivers weed to a hippie-dippy Greenwich Village rich girl, perfectly played by Zoe Lescaze. First he’s just casing the joint looking for something to steal, but then the two quickly hit a flirty frission, each fascinated by the other’s alien lifestyle. “My mom’s in Nantucket,” she explains. He answers, as he should: “What the fuck is Nantucket?” Lescaze’s subplot takes an unex-
pected turn that feels exactly right once you get there. Indeed, you only realize in retrospect that Gimme the Loot is full of surprises that you probably should have known were coming all along. But just like our romantically mismatched taggers, sometimes we can’t see what’s obvious. Leon got his start working as a production assistant for Woody Allen, and their visions of New York couldn’t possibly seem more dissimilar. (Leon’s has people of color, for starters.) But they’re bonded by an infatuation with the city as a realm of endless possibility, as well as a shared affinity for long, loping dialogue scenes. There’s no herky-jerky shaky-cam here; Leon’s shots are cleanly composed and give the actors room to breathe. The title shouts out to Notorious B.I.G., but the soundtrack is vintage doo-wop and sweet ‘60s soul, lending a nostalgic glow to a present-tense tale. At a breezy hour and 20 minutes, Gimme the Loot runs not one second longer than it needs to. But I still didn’t want it to end.

La Havas Has It Lianne La Havas brings her haunting soul-folk stylings to World Cafe Live. By Bill Chenevert // email@example.com
Pretty Daze Ahead Kurt Vile’s sunny new LP hits streets before he heads to Coachella.

PW: Your record has a healthy amount of dichotomies: quiet and loud, soft and hard, sad and ebullient. Do you like playing with that contrast? La Havas: Absolutely. I think it depends on the song and the context. As a musician, you want to explore all different types of ways of interpreting a feeling or a lyric or whatever. You’ve had a few videos, and they seem to be important to you as a form of expression. Is this something you enjoy? Yes. But I’ve decided now that I only want to work with my friends, and my favorite videos are the ones that I’ve done with my closest friends. You have to trust them, and you can’t do that if you’re not working with someone you’re close to. But I love it. Representing what you do visually, I love that part of it. The anguish and frustration between the two characters in the video for “Gone” is palpable. It almost has undertones of domestic violence. Not physical abuse. I’m very lucky that that never happened, but more of a psychological and mental torment. It was all a very co-dependent relationship, in which I was completely infatuated, and he didn’t feel the same, and he led me to believe that he felt the same. I’m sure it wasn’t on purpose; it was just kind of the way it happened. I just needed to express that that wasn’t okay once I finally realized what was going on–that I was going to be on my own and didn’t need that anymore. Are you pleased with the reception to your new record? Brits may have been listening for a while, but we only got you last fall.
I’m very, very pleased—extremely pleased. I couldn’t have imagined the response. And now I get to travel and meet amazing audiences and all kinds of things. [People are listening] in countries you’ve never been to. It’s kind of amazing. In your fantasy world, who would you share a show roster with? Little Dragon, Everything Everything—my favorite band; both of them are my favorite bands, actually. Probably Lauryn Hill, and I think Laura Marling. [Marling] is incredibly talented, and I just love her. We love our St. Vincent, and I’d put you in her company. In fact, I’d love to hear you two sing together or collaborate. Oh, I love her. That’s incredibly nice of you to say. She’s such an amazing singer, amazing songwriter, amazing performer, and she’s so fit. She’s totally stylish. She’s got the glamorous thing going on—when you can just put on an amazing dress and just rock out.” Sun., April 7. Sold out. With Jamie N Commons.

hat band is that?” Kurt Vile abruptly stands, upstairs at One Shot Coffee in Northern Liberties, peering at bookshelves that wrap around the room. He walks toward an erect, stand-alone book that appears to picture a group on the cover. Vile’s more than just Philadelphia’s curious poster boy of indie rock. He’s a family man, and in more than one sense: Yes, he’s got two daughters—a fivemonth-old and a beautiful, bubbly toddler, Awilda, whose precocious play lights up the Matador YouTube video for his single “Never Run Away”—but he’s also a member of Philly’s rock tribe. He sees his rise in the ranks as a good thing for everyone with whom he’s ever played, recorded or jammed. Vile’s fifth album, Wakin’ on a Pretty Daze, is basically already a success, despite the fact that it doesn’t come out until April 9. It’s featured on NPR’s “First Listen,” and any pre-release critical buzz is pretty dazzling. It’ll most likely garner a Best New Music nod from Pitchfork; his last, 2011’s Smoke Ring for My Halo, did, but, oddly, Childish Prodigy, Vile’s brilliant Matador debut two years prior, didn’t. I ask him about it. “It’s kind of weird how they can ruin a band,” he says. “They’re definitely not on the mark all the time.” Essentially, no one else in Philadelphia is catching up to Vile in his lane, and he plans to take that momentum and run with it. At this point in his career, he’s allowing himself to be picky. He can turn down shows or spread tours out so that he can bounce back to Philly to hang with his wife and baby girls, but one doesn’t say no to Coachella. Vile heads to California in a bit to warm up in San Diego before playing the big Indio festival. Only a few days after the release of Wakin’, and he’ll be performing it before thousands of exuberant indie heads. They’re sweet gigs, Vile says—and they keep comin.’ “Those pay, playing to big crowds of stoked music fans. And there are certain festivals that can be prestigious: Coachella, Bonnaroo, Primavera Sound. We’re doing Primavera for the second time.” He’s come a long way, baby, from sneaking out to play on South Street at 15. Wakin’ on a Pretty Daze is a sunny, slightly lo-fi affair. If Childish was psychedelic groove punk and Smoke Ring was far-out folk, Wakin’ is the perfect accompaniment to our pending spring and summer. It’s full of Vile’s signature slightly mumbly but subtly brilliant lyricism and anchored by his outstanding, complex guitar work. It was recorded all over the country with friends from Warpaint, Beachwood Sparks and Royal Trux. And while he has some awesome musician friends, Vile also has some heavy-hitting musician fans: Bradford Cox, J. Mascis and Kim Gordon are avowed admirers, and it’s mutual. His last vivid concert-going experience: seeing Dinosaur Jr. at Union Transfer. “It was like seeing Neil Young,” he says. When Vile’s tour hits Union Transfer on May 18, his fans will no doubt feel the same. (Bill Chenevert)
ianne La Havas, a Greek-Jamaican darling from London whose debut, Is Your Love Big Enough?, is truly a stunner, has hit the road, headlining her first tour after supporting Bon Iver on a previous run through the U.S. Luckily for us, she pays a visit to a sold-out World Cafe Live next week, where her hauntingly beautiful brand of soul-folk, which is simultaneously delicate and funky, will no doubt thrill local music lovers. PW had a quick phone chat with the talented La Havas, who’s eagerly anticipating her return to the East Coast “hopefully connecting with audiences over on that side as well,” she told us. “There’s a lot of great music that comes out of there, and I’m just excited to see it, see a bit more of it.”

By Dan Savage // email@example.com I am trying to understand some fantasies I have. They involve having sex with a woman who has a penis. Sometimes I fantasize that my wife grew a penis. The fantasies started when we tried pegging a few years ago. We recently had a child and can no longer find the time for such kinky sex. These transsexual fantasies have caused a large strain in our relationship, and I don’t understand why I am having them. I do not want a relationship with another person I just want to know if it’s normal to have these fantasies. Confused But Hopeful

Normal? No, most men don’t fantasize about their wives sprouting penises, CBH, so your fantasy isn’t normative. But no one’s sexual fantasy is. Fantasies are subjective and personal. Some are more common than others—a desire to be spanked, for instance—but even the most common sexual fantasies appeal only to small subsets of people. Here’s what you should do about your fantasies for now: Shut up and fantasize about them. Your sex life has taken a hit because you’re new parents; odds are good that your wife doesn’t have the time or energy for sex right now without you also asking her to do something impossible (grow a penis) or something risky (give you the OK to get this fantasy fulfilled elsewhere). And considering what that pegging awoke in you, your wife may be experiencing a bad case of pegger’s remorse right now. She may worry where your fantasies will ultimately lead, e.g., cheating or leaving. That’s not something a new mom (or a new dad) wants to contemplate. So, again, shut the fuck up and beat the fuck off for now. In a year or maybe two, after your sex life has kicked back into gear, your wife might be willing to either explore your fantasies through role-play games or give you a pass to get with a woman with a dick. To understand more about your fetish, google “gynandromorphophilia.” My boyfriend recently became interested in motorcycles, which makes me nervous for his safety. He settled on a motorcycle/scooter hybrid that only goes 50 miles per hour. Now he’s looking into upgrading to a full motorcycle. I am genuinely worried for his safety. However, it’s his life, we don’t have kids, and I certainly don’t control him. How do you deal with your fear over a loved one’s safety when they choose to do something that makes you nervous? Wants Improved Motor Practices My husband recently became interested in growing a mustache, which made me nervous for my sanity. (All of my uncles had mustaches when I was a kid, and the thought of kissing a guy with a mustache made me think of kissing my uncles Ray, Bill, Jerry, Jimmy, et al.) He went ahead and grew one while I was out of town. It’s his face, of course, and I certainly don’t control him. But I control my face, and I refused to press mine to his—or press any other part of my body to any part of his—until the mustache was gone. It was gone the next day. Maybe you could take the same approach with your boyfriend? I am a 29-year-old straight male. I was introduced to Fetlife—and to BDSM generally—by my former girlfriend, who has a profile on the site. The relationship ended a year ago. We tried to be friends, but she changed her mind, and now we don’t speak. I joined Fetlife recently, and
here’s where it gets awkward: After our breakup, I occasionally looked at her profile. When she posted a couple nice photos of herself, I stupidly liked them. Now she’s messaged me a couple times, and I am terrified. There are no pictures on my profile, so she doesn’t know it’s me. Now I don’t know what to do: ignore the messages, come clean, or what? Ex Currently Keeping Secret We can’t stop our exes from checking out our online personal ads, blogs, websites, Tumblrs, etc., but you stepped over the line when you liked your ex’s photos. That act amounted to initiating contact with a woman who made it clear that she no longer wished to be in contact with you. You could respond to her messages with “Hey, it’s me,” but she may feel that you tricked her into getting back in contact. Having her messages ignored might also upset her, ECKS, but a nonresponse from a presumed stranger will be less upsetting than a hello from you. There are lots of lurkers and flakes on dating sites, and it’s pretty common to send one or two messages to someone and never hear back. So don’t respond. I’m a 20-year-old full-time college student, studying engineering. I work two jobs and participate in athletics. As you can imagine, I have little time to myself, let alone time to spend finding someone. But I recently became “involved” with a member of the faculty. He’s 20 years older than I am, and we have so much in common that it should be illegal! Should I cut the cord now? Or should I continue enjoying the hottest, sweetest, most thoughtful person I’ve ever met? Sincerely Smitten Student Hesitates Enjoy. And if your hot, sweet, thoughtful faculty member honors the Campsite Rule, i.e., he leaves you in better shape than he found you (no diseases, no unplanned pregnancies, no avoidable drama/ trauma), you are in turn obligated to honor the Tea and Sympathy Rule, i.e., when you speak of this in future years—and you will—you will be kind (no nuttiness, no anger that a relationship that was unlikely to work out long-term didn’t wind up turning into an LTR, no sabotaging his academic career by naming names and institutions in a tell-all post on FuckedMyProf.tumblr.com). Have fun, SSSH. You’ve given a lot of great advice, Dan, but I have to take issue with your recommendation to Socially Interactive Sister. She was thinking about hiring someone to relieve her 22-year-old brother of his virginity. Why would you recommend a sex worker when you could recommend a professional surrogate partner therapist? These professionals work hand in hand with licensed sex therapists and have training in order to work therapeutically with folks just like SIS’s brother. Additionally, you incorrectly associate sex work with the movie The Sessions, which clearly deals with surrogate partner therapy. Sex work and surrogate partner therapy are not the same. This will make it more difficult for those of us working in this field who are trying to legitimize surrogate partner therapy. You can find more info at surrogatetherapy.org.

RESEARCH VOLUNTEERS Are You Bothered By Menopausal Hot Flashes? You could be eligible for an investigational research study if you are 45-60 years of age, in good general health, and experiencing hot flashes. Participants will be compensated and receive an investigational, non-hormonal study medication. Call 215-662-3329, Penn Medicine BT Steps: A Study of Web-Based Treatment for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder Do you have obsessivecompulsive disorder or think you might? Have you had trouble finding treatment for your OCD? Do you use the Internet? If you answered “yes” to these questions, you might be eligible to participate in a research study conducted by Dr. Kenneth Kobak of the Center for Psychological Consultation. This study will evaluate a new, web-based treatment program for obsessive-compulsive disorder called BT Steps. BT Steps teaches participants skills from cognitive behavior therapy and is based on an earlier, telephone-based program t h a t wa s s h o w n to b e e f fe c t i v e in a research trial. In the current research study, we will assess the effectiveness of BT Steps alone, or supported by coaching from either a trained coach or a cognitive behavior therapist. This study is supported by a grant from the National Institute of Mental Health. To participate in this study, you must be at least 18 years old, have OCD, and use or be willing to use the Internet. You will not be required to travel to participate in this study, as the BT Steps program is web-based and all coaching will take place via telephone. Participants will be compensated for their participation. If you have any questions or would like to learn more about this study please contact Revere Greist at (608) 556-0766 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
