Regarding John Sharkey III’s dissenting view on the mythicization of Bruce Springsteen: To me, people applied the working-man image to Bruce while he just wrote the music that he wanted to write about. Granted, in recent years he has gotten closer and closer to playing up the image of a sort of workingclass hero. But until Ghost of Tom Joad, he did not purposefully do any of that. He just did what he wanted to do, and others fell in line with it. I am obsessed with Bruce so my view is obviously a bit biased, but Bruce to me is not the working-class hero everyone else sees him as. He is just a guy who writes relatable songs. I have lived a privileged life luckily and have not had to suffer through the miserable working conditions many others have, which I feel blessed for. But I still find his music very human and relatable. He isn’t for the working man, he is just for man. ANONYMOUS, via philadelphiaweekly.com I take offense to the writer’s use of the word “researched” as if Bruce is a marketing firm. He thinks long and hard and makes thoughtful decisions. That’s what artists with integrity do. The writer also seems to have a problem deciding if he dislikes Springsteen himself or these “new” fans. I’ve got no problem with these folks. I’d rather another Hold Steady, Arcade Fire or Gaslight Anthem come along than the next Maroon 5. Don’t like Springsteen, John? Take him off your iTunes and stop your whining. TOM ACOX, via philadelphiaweekly.com Wow, you make so many great points here and I love your style. [Springsteen] has some classic songs, I’ve heard he’s a nice guy if you meet him on the street, but yes, not the Boss. I so wish I could send this to my dear departed Dad, who would always scratch his head and totally not understand the Springsteen fever. He said his music was not music at all, and lots of his songs just aren’t. (Yet I can totally rock out to Born to Run!) And I was never interested in sitting/standing through an entire Springsteen concert. ANONYMOUS, via philadelphiaweekly.com What a crybaby. Springsteen is easily one of the best singer/songwriters since the 1970s. I really don’t care if he hasn’t experienced the blue-collar role, because he understands it and is capable of conveying strong messages in his work. ANONYMOUS, via philadelphiaweekly.com So if you grow up in a household where your family struggles through blue-collar jobs and you watch how it tears at the fabric of relationships and life, you didn’t actually experience it? You can’t use the experiences gleaned through growing up in that environment to express a world view in your music? You can live 20 years in that environment, but if you happen to choose a path where people appreciate and relate to your art, you are phony because you didn’t work in the dock? Please. You need to rethink this. Like the art or don’t, but don’t ignore the fact that we are all shaped by a complex mix of experiences, well beyond the jobs you’ve had or when (or whether) you have achieved financial success. Dig a bit deeper, will you? SJ, via philadelphiaweekly.com

Paws for Reaction Regarding Tara Murtha’s news feature about Philly’s animal control: Who is making these decisions over at the ACCT? I mean it’s obvious that they don’t care about animals. Who is on this board that seems more preoccupied with putting the same old crew in the same old positions, rather then fixing the problems that everyone who deals with ACCT is aware of? Sick animals, sub par management, disgruntled employees and inadequate services and a return CEO making more the $100,000 a year? The city once again shows its lackadaisical attitude in serving the residents of this city. ANONYMOUS, via philadelphiaweekly.com

King of the Castle State Rep. Daryl Metcalfe defends PA’s self-defense law in wake of Trayvon Martin’s death. By Michael Alan Goldberg mgoldberg@philadelphiaweekly.com

Man with a plan: State Rep. Daryl Metcalfe is one of Pennsylvania’s leading pro-gun lawmakers.

T

P H I L A D E L P H I A W E E K LY April 4 - 10, 2012 • 6

he shooting of Florida teen Trayvon Martin has spurred an intense national conversation over controversial self-defense laws. Many argue that Martin’s killer, George Zimmerman, is illegitimately using Florida’s Stand Your Ground law—which provides for the justifiable use of deadly force to protect one’s self from the threat of death or bodily harm—to shield himself from prosecution. Last summer, after a long and emotional debate among Pennsylvania state lawmakers, Gov. Corbett signed into law House Bill 40, an expanded version of the state’s “Castle Doctrine,” which has long justified the use of deadly force for self-defense in one’s home without a duty to retreat. Prior to 2011, the law stipulated that if you were anywhere outside your home and you felt your life was being threatened, you were obligated by law to try to retreat first and use lethal force only as a last resort. The expanded law eliminates your duty to retreat in public spaces. Yet there are differences between our Castle Doctrine and Florida’s Stand Your Ground law: The Castle Doctrine states that the person threatening your life must openly display a weapon for you to be justified in using deadly force. (Trayvon Martin was unarmed.) There have already been a couple test cases in Pennsylvania since HB 40 went into effect in August. For instance, in

December, Montgomery County resident Angel Gonzalez, 42, shot and killed 19-year-old Zach Levin and wounded his stepfather, Joshua Levin, after the two men attacked Gonzalez with baseball bats in his driveway. Two weeks ago, Montgomery County District Attorney Risa Ferman cited the expanded Castle Doctrine in announcing that no charges would be filed against Gonzalez. In the wake of the Martin shooting, the Philadelphia-based anti-gun-violence group CeaseFirePA has launched a blistering attack on Pennsylvania’s expanded Castle Doctrine, which the group vigorously opposed while it was being considered by lawmakers. “We now see how last year’s expansion of the Castle Doctrine can lead exactly where concerned citizens feared it might,” wrote CeaseFirePA board president Dan Muroff in a March 22 press release. “Amazingly, some legislators in Florida still defend Stand Your Ground, suggesting it was misapplied in Trayvon’s case. Deflecting blame won’t prevent vigilantes from recklessly using handguns, or from thinking they can shoot without fear of scrutiny from law enforcement.” In an email demanding that the decision to expand the Castle Doctrine (which he calls a “Shoot First” law) be reversed, CeaseFirePA director Max Nacheman concluded, “How many more innocent people like Trayvon Martin must die before Harrisburg comes to its senses?” State Rep. Daryl Metcalfe (R-Butler County)—co-sponsor of the expanded Castle Doctrine and Pennsylvania’s leading, and most unapologetic, pro-gun lawmaker—insists the expanded law is a good piece of legislation and accuses CeaseFirePA of “capitalizing on somebody’s tragic loss” for its “anti-gun agenda.” In an interview with PW, Metcalfe discusses the Martin killing and defends the Castle Doctrine from its detractors. Based on what you’ve read and heard, what’s your take on the Trayvon Martin shooting? I think it’s very clear from what’s been reported that [George] Zimmerman put himself in a situation where he shouldn’t have been. He shouldn’t have been pursuing this individual. From everything that’s been reported, it’s just a very tragic situation and one that shouldn’t have occurred. Do you think George Zimmerman should have been arrested, and do you

believe the Stand Your Ground law applies in this case? I don’t have all the facts, all I have is what’s been reported. And I believe that Jeb Bush, the former [Florida] governor who signed [Stand Your Ground], has made a statement that Florida’s [law] does not apply to the situation. Clearly, it sounds like from what was reported, that this individual was pursuing the young man who ended up being shot, which is not something that anybody should be doing. It’s one thing to protect your home or to come to the aid of a neighbor who’s screaming for help in the alley or in their own home. But for somebody to be pursuing somebody down the street because they have suspicions, that’s a job for law enforcement. That’s not a job for a local crime watch individual or a security guard or anybody like that. From what’s been reported, it really would appear that Zimmerman was acting outside the law.

“The person threatening your life has to have some type of a weapon ... You can’t just claim self-defense and pull the trigger.” Last year, when Pennsylvania lawmakers voted to expand the Castle Doctrine and add a stand-your-ground provision, opponents argued that the new law would create a “shoot first, ask questions later” mentality and encourage and protect vigilantes. Based on what happened in Florida, groups like CeaseFirePA are now essentially saying, “We told you so.” How do you respond to that criticism? I think it’s typical of the people in the United States that want to take firearms away from law-abiding citizens. Their typical response is to prey on these situations that occur where someone loses their life in a tragic set of circumstances. When CeaseFirePA tries to exploit this loss of a life in Florida for their own gain in Pennsylvania, I think it’s outrageous. Bottom line: Would George Zimmerman be protected under Pennsylvania’s Castle Doctrine?

The Pennsylvania Castle Doctrine would not provide for protection of someone to do what has been reportedly done in Florida. The stand-your-ground component of our law would require—if you’re not in your home or vehicle or place of business—if you are out and about and you believe that your life is threatened, then the person threatening your life has to have some type of a weapon to do it. You can’t just claim self-defense and pull the trigger. The criminal element has to have a weapon that they could use to inflict bodily harm and ultimately seriously hurt you in order for you to use deadly force. Did you support that provision of the law last year? Well, that was part of the package. It was part of what we had negotiated. There are situations where, you know, if somebody’s being mugged by multiple individuals that don’t have weapons but they’re gonna bootstomp ’em into the ground, that boot could be a weapon. But then you still have self-defense within the law, so those sections of the law might come into play where Castle Doctrine might not. Are you satisfied with Pa.’s Castle Doctrine law as it currently stands? Castle Doctrine was a huge step forward for law-abiding citizens to be able to use firearms to defend themselves from the criminal element. Pennsylvania is a safer place to be because of the [expanded] Castle Doctrine. Since it was signed into law, we’ve had situations that have been reported across the state where lawabiding citizens have been able to protect themselves and have been protected by Castle Doctrine. Florida’s governor [Rick Scott] says he plans to look at his state’s Stand Your Ground law and see if it’s appropriate as written, or if the application of the law has been abused. Do you expect a similar reassessment of Pennsylvania’s Castle Doctrine in the coming months? No. From the situations that have occurred since Castle Doctrine has passed, it’s clearly evident that Castle Doctrine is making Pennsylvania a safer place to be. People can protect themselves without fear of the criminal, and without fear of future lawsuits from whomever those might come from if they do have to use force to protect themselves and their families and their property. n

IT’S DIRTY WORK ENDING MS. JUNE 9 & 10, 2012 • NEWTOWN SQUARE, PA

REGISTER TODAY! MUCKRUCKUSMS.ORG/PHILLY 9

CONTINUED FROM FRONT COVER > . . . along with his friend and partner, 33-yearold Cliff Shumaker, who moved to Philadelphia two years ago with the dream of turning his DIY record label, Phonographic Arts, into something bigger. Now that the two are working together, it’s happening. Phonographic Arts has been producing a furiously busy calendar of live shows since late last summer, and recently moved its primary performance venue from South Philly’s Little Bar (now closed) to the Level Room in Center City. This weekend, Shumaker and Troxell are throwing their first full-scale music festival; dubbed Liberty Fest, it will encompass the Level Room’s main stage as well as Emoda Gallery in their South Philly neighborhood. “I always knew I’d end up here,”

Meanwhile, Pat Troxell had grown up in the Philly burbs, where he attended Upper Moreland High School with Richie Charles, who would go on to local music fame as a member of the punk band Clockcleaner. “I remember Pat as an enthusiastic young fellow riding a skateboard and wearing a crimson ghost on his T-shirt,” Charles says, “so he was on the right path early.” Young Pat commuted into the city every chance he could to catch punk shows. Then-thriving West Philly DIY venues like Killtime and Stalag 13 were his stomping grounds, and he frequently saw nowlegendary local hardcore acts like Frail and Ink & Dagger. “Going to concerts in Philly when I was really young shaped the way I think about music now,” says Troxell, who

Shumaker promoted a few random shows in South Philly in 2010, but Phonographic Arts really started taking off after he recruited Troxell to join the effort. The two undertook planning an ambitious show schedule, which launched at Little Bar in August 2011 with a concert headlined by Florida punks Merchandise. The guys quickly built a solid reputation

the Miami Heat.” He cuts off the basketball chat when an email pops up. “Another band just asked if they could play Liberty Fest,” he tells Troxell, sounding equally excited and disappointed. See, Phonographic Arts doesn’t like turning away bands, but in recent weeks it’s become necessary, as more bands from around the country have reached out to them in hopes of playing the festival. But the lineup for the massive three-day event (Fri., April 6 through Sun., April 8) is already finalized: 37 hardcorepunk and garage-rock-centric acts, most of them local. And tickets are vanishing fast. It’s an ambitious undertaking, considering Phonographic Arts has been regularly presenting shows in the city for just nine months. Then again, that nine-month labor of love has roots that go back quite a bit farther.

realized that presenters like R5 were doing more than just putting on shows—they were building a community, giving kids a safe place to hang and supporting local musicians. When those venues shut down, Pat felt lost. “I remember it perfectly,” he says. “In March 2004, it was snowing in Philly and I completely lost my shit. I was totally bummed out. Killtime had just closed, and everything was going downhill.” A Department of Licenses & Inspection crackdown on the DIY scene in Philly made it easy for Troxell to decide to move to Austin when a friend offered him a room for $100 a month. He jumped on a Greyhound bus. “My friends all went to college, and I went to Austin,” he says. “They got degrees, and I learned how to book shows.” Within three days of arriving in Texas, Troxell got a job at the indie venue Emo’s; subsequently, he became one of the first employees at the nightclub Red 7. At the same time, his housemates started booking shows—noise-rock, avant-garde bands, everything—at their warehouse, 423 Tillery St. “It was modeled on Killtime,” Troxell says of the space, where they hosted bands like Miami sludgemetal giants Torche and Chicago punks Los Crudos. “Anyone could come, bring their own beer, and see a show for $5.” Troxell’s Philly-inspired venture into Austin concert promotion wasn’t his only connection back to his hometown. Before long, he moved into a big house on the University of Texas’ frat row along with a dozen other transplants. They called it Fort Liberty. “All the kids from Philly lived there,” he says. The house became their new DIY venue—and that’s where Pat Troxell met Cliff Shumaker, who was then living in Houston, for the first time. Troxell sat in as drummer for a week-long reunion tour with Shumaker’s band My Luck. They hit it off, and talked a lot about Troxell’s nostalgia for home. “We both realized we wanted to eventually be in Philadelphia,” Troxell says. “That tour really sealed the deal.” But first, right before Shumaker left Texas for Cleveland, Troxell headed to Baltimore, where he worked briefly at the Ottobar club before finally returning to Philadelphia in late 2008. He worked construction jobs until he landed a gig delivering beer for Franklin Distributors, where he still works. He also started an indie-rock band called Creepoid—and in August 2010, Shumaker released the band’s Yellow Life Giver 7-inch on his Phonographic Arts label.

Shumaker says. “It’s such a gritty city. I love it … Center City’s weird because it’s not a real neighborhood, but I really like working there.” “Yeah, Cliff really likes looking at the tall buildings,” jokes Troxell, a Lager in one hand, a chicken wing in the other. Shumaker rolls his eyes, but the fact is, he does love the city with the passion of the recently relocated. Take the 76ers, for instance. Cliff doesn’t just go to almost every home game; he has a Tumblr devoted to the team, 7sixersyo.tumblr.com. “If we can hit our free throws, and Andre Iguodala and Evan Turner remain patient with each other,” he muses idly while checking his phone for messages, “we should cruise through the first two rounds of the playoffs. And then suffer heartbreaking defeat in the Eastern conference finals to

the Montrose neighborhood of Houston. Cliff Shumaker was deeply involved in the city’s underground music scene: working the door at a neighborhood bar/venue called the Mink, singing in the first lineup of the post-hardcore band Black Congress and, later, playing in the hardcore band My Luck. In 2008, Shumaker released a 12-inch album for his friends’ garage-punk band Balaclavas, and he named the label Phonographic Arts. He then entered the DIY publishing game under the same banner, printing five small-run chapbooks and zines by Houston writers and artists, including a one-off music zine called Glue Wave. After stumbling later that year upon a Craigslist rental ad offering an affordable space, Shumaker moved to Cleveland to open a boutique record store in the city’s Tremont neighborhood. Seeing it not as a new venture but as an expansion of his existing mini-empire, he named the shop Phonographic Arts, too. “I sold a lot of noise tapes,” he recalls. More tellingly, he also presented several in-store shows and concerts at DIY spaces around the city, including a double-bill with so-called “shit-wave” band Psychedelic Horseshit and Outer Space, the experimental-drone project of Emeralds’ John Elliott. “Bands were contacting me all the time looking for places to play,” says Cliff, “so rather than wait around for someone else to book them, I did it myself.” The Phonographic Arts record store celebrated its one-year anniversary in October 2009 with a weekend concert, and then Shumaker hopped on board as a roadie touring with one of the bands on the bill—Austin, Texas, metal outfit Iron Age. During a gig in New York City, he met Philadelphian Jonathan Yates, owner of the South Philly record store Beautiful World Syndicate. Following a latenight talk about music that ranged from Krautrock to death metal, Yates offered Shumaker a job in Philly. “Cleveland’s really depressing,” Shumaker says. “I was sick of it, and had always loved Philly. It was a no-brainer.” He relocated one month later.

by presenting exceptional national touring bands that would’ve otherwise been venue-less, like Houston’s Indian Jewelry and Brooklyn’s the Men, who’ve since become NPR-worthy. At the same time, they featured local bands like Watery Love, Purling Hiss—they even hosted a fundraiser for now-defunct punks Gods & Queens, who’d flipped their van in the Czech Republic during a European tour. In September, just as Troxell and Shumaker were getting their feet under them, something important happened in the city’s concert landscape: Union Transfer opened on Spring Garden Street. Philly’s long-running DIY concert promoter R5 began focusing its energy on presenting bigger shows at the new venue—and this opened up a space for a smaller presenter to jump in and bring lesser-known bands to the city. Phonographic Arts filled that gap. “Contrary to popular belief,” says R5 boss Sean Agnew, “we want other people to be doing shows, and it’s great to have like-minded guys like Phonographic Arts doing it. I’m a big fan of theirs—they’re continuing Philly’s long, well-established DIY scene. Most of the employees and staff of R5 and Phonographic Arts are from ‘back in the day’ and that gives us a unique perspective when it comes to booking shows.” Shumaker compares their relationship with R5 to baseball’s farm system— Phonographic Arts presents talented but unknown bands at their smaller venues so that eventually those same bands can move on to play bigger R5 shows. The two presenters are also working together to promote a few events, including an allages concert at the Level Room with Memphis hardcore band Tragedy next month. “We love that we can help out these smaller bands that bigger clubs have to pass on,” Troxell says. “Philly’s one of these cities that’s hard to crack—bands playing here for the first time probably won’t have any luck, so we help them. And we love booking local bands.” “In New York and other cities, people really care about national, touring bands coming to town,” says Shumaker. “But in Philly, it’s all about the local bands. That’s what Philly wants, so that’s what we do.” All through last fall, Phonographic Arts presented close to 30 shows monthly at the Little Bar—but after a murky disagreement with management in mid-December, they were forced to choose between canceling the 20-plus concerts already scheduled or quickly finding a new home. “I started walking the city and looking for bars that were up for rent,” says Pat. “I collected phone numbers and started calling landlords, and I eventually found the right phone number and the right landlord. I showed them our calendar, our stats and our crew, and the owner said, ‘I’m an idiot if I don’t do this.’” And so, without having to cancel a single show, Phonographic Arts moved its staff and calendar into the Level Room. Formerly a hip-hop club, the three-floor,

600-person-capacity building sits on an otherwise quiet section of Market Street half a block east of the Salvation Army Thrift Store. The Level Room isn’t Troxell’s and Shumaker’s only venue—since January, they’ve also been hosting shows at Silk City and Emoda Gallery, the South Philly artspace where bands like Creepoid and locals Far-Out Fangtooth practice—but it’s quickly become their home away from home. And not just theirs.

On a recent Saturday, Phonographic Arts has two concerts sharing a single night at the Level Room: four rock bands downstairs, four metal bands upstairs. As Shumaker finalizes the set times, Troxell, who’s working the downstairs soundboard, sets up the mics. With both floors in full swing, it’s a pretty good test run for the upcoming Liberty Fest. Most of Phonographic Arts’ small crew—bouncers, bartenders, sound techs—are Philly locals who were employed at venues in Austin until Troxell and Shumaker offered them jobs back home. Like Stony, their right-hand man, who lived with Troxell at Fort Liberty and is now back home, handling the evening’s operational logistics with a calm hand. “We’ve done 15 bands in one show back in Texas, so it’s not a new thing,” he shrugs. “It’s like second nature to us.” After everything’s set up, Shumaker books two May shows on his iPhone while Troxell briefs the staff on their plans to build a festival stage at Emoda Gallery. While most of Liberty Fest’s lineup will unfold here at the Level Room, Emoda will host a Saturday afternoon concert featuring nine hardcore bands, including Chicago’s Raw Nerve and Philly’s Backslider. There’s definitely an aggressive aesthetic edge running across the bands playing the fest; Phonographic Arts sees this as giving Philadelphia what it needs. “Each show’s based around something we know kids in Philadelphia want,” Troxell says. “It’s not a punk fest or a hardcore fest or just psych-rock bands. The bands represent our friends’ record collections— it’s everything they’d want to see live. “We’re not some huge corporate entity booking Popped! or Riot Fest,” he adds, wanting to distinguish these bands from those that played two mainstream festivals Philly hosted last summer. “Instead, we’re parading this hard lineup in front of the rest of the world and saying, ‘Hey, yo, check out our city. This is what we have going on. It’s Liberty Fest, motherfucker!’” One of several bands that does stand apart from the decidedly heavy lineup is Philadelphia’s True Gold, a shoegazy quartet that makes melodic, dreamy pop music. They open Sunday’s show, which concludes with sets by local psych-veterans Bardo Pond and rockers Purling Hiss. Philly performers appreciate the opportunity Liberty Fest—and Phonographic Arts in general—represents. “Options for local bands to play were limited before they came along,” True Gold’s Michael

something we know kids in Philadelphia want. It’s not just a punk fest or a hardcore fest or just psych-rock bands.”

Venue, sweet venue: Pat Troxell (left) and Cliff Shumaker call the Level Room home, but also host shows at Silk City and Emoda Gallery. Kappeler says. “R5’s great, but they mostly do touring bands. The chances we’d get an R5 show are slim, so Cliff and Pat have definitely filled a niche in Philly that desperately needed filling.” There are drawbacks to being a small but ambitious outfit. Phonographic Arts’ record label has gathered dust since 2010; they say getting it rolling again will be a top priority after Liberty Fest. Their first project will be to release True Gold’s debut album, and they’re planning a series of cassette and vinyl releases, some of which are live recordings from past Phonographic Arts gigs. There’s also talk of expanding booking activity to Houston and Atlantic

City. Plans are already under way for a June show in A.C. that will coincide with Metallica’s Orion Festival and provide an underground alternative to Orion’s mainstream lineup. “Maybe if we have a really rad show, [Metallica’s drummer] Lars Ulrich will come bitch at us,” Troxell jokes. Given all they’ve done so far, it’s no surprise to learn the guys would love to open their own venue one day—but they realize this goal remains in the distant future. “We can become an even greater force, but first we hope to open up a legit office space,” says Troxell. On the other hand: “We also don’t have a problem with remaining underground.” n

The Golem

J

udaism has been front and center on Philly stages this season as both the Lantern Theater and the Arden Theatre score boxoffice hits with plays exploring the Jewish Faith. EgoPo Classic Theater has devoted its entire season to Jewish theater—including the company’s newest creation, The Golem. Inspired by the ancient Jewish myth about a rabbi who creates a living man out of clay, director Brenna Geffers’ production takes place on a train in Prague in 1940. At first, the passengers have little in common beyond the yellow star pinned to their clothing and their shared apprehension about the train’s unknown destination. To calm their anxiety, the travelers share different versions of the legend of the golem. One tale is told by a puppet maker using Czech-style marionettes, another employs Klezmer and folk music, and a third story uses shadows and projections to recall how the golem is brought to life. The stories forge a bond between the passengers, who boarded the train as frightened strangers and disembark as a community with a shared faith and an uncertain future. J. Cooper robb

Juan of the Dead

Yarnbombing

Fifty years after Fidel Castro revolted against the Cuban government, the island is experiencing a new disruption: a plague of the undead. As an outbreak hits the island on the anniversary of the revolution, Juan and his friends set out to conquer zombies. According to government reports, the undead are actually unruly Americans continuing their quest of undermining the Cuban regime. Casting those from the U.S. as brainless, impulse-driven monsters? Point taken. Shown in Spanish with English subtitles, this movie is premiering in Philadelphia thanks to the Awesome Fest. The project, founded by Philadelphia Underground Film Festival and Philly CineFest Artistic Director Josh Goldbloom, brings independent or otherwise overlooked movies to our city. A.K.

Sure, covering a tree trunk in a colorful little sweater may seem like nothing more than a frivolous—albeit unbelievably awesome and joyous—act of vandalism, but there’s actually much more to it. Following a demonstration, local artist Jessie Hemmons (aka “ishknits”) will discuss the evolution of yarnbombing as an international art form. Using a typically feminine craft and replacing menacing or socio-political messages with vibrant colored yarn, Hemmons aims to not only challenge the way graffiti is perceived, but to get people thinking about the role that gender plays in the world of noncommissioned street art. And while you’ve likely seen her crocheted masterpieces around town on bike racks, poles and even the Rocky statue, guests will have a chance to actually witness the guerilla knitter in action as she bombs several objects outside the Philly Art Alliance for a site-specific installation. nICole FInKbIner

Ferry Corsten In interviews, the Netherlands-based trance tactician Ferry Corsten seems an incredibly bland character—the sort who never goes much past the “Everything is awesome”/”DJing in different places is cool” kind of POV. What the man lacks in personality, however, he makes up in scene credibility. Corsten has been in the game for well over a decade, crafting some solid tracks (e.g., the alluring “Made of Love?”), employing several aliases (Pulse, Moonman, Albion), and handling

multiple record labels along the way. While speaking to Karma Loop about his new album, WKND, Corsten said, “The album has to create that weekend feeling where people relax and enjoy themselves.” Coming from someone who maintains the charmed existence of a jet setter, the statement definitely fits.

Loving Openly Lately, monogamy doesn’t seem so monolithic. When the former Mrs. Gingrich claimed that Newt allegedly requested an open marriage, reporters earnestly consulted polyamorists for comment. Any frank talk in the mainstream media about adult sexual behavior is commendable, but that doesn’t make it easier when one is grappling with these issues personally. Fortunately, ScrewSmart is here to help carnal questers. Mixing equal parts knowledge and enthusiasm, these sexy sex-educators want to help people exploring alternatives to monogamy by providing information and support. Loving Openly is a guided conversation in which everyone’s perspective is valued, whether straight or gay, single or married. Turns out, there are many forms open relationships can take, all of which demand communication and trust. They’ll also encourage realism regarding the benefits and pitfalls of open relationships. Sure, there will be some really hot sex, but there will also be some heartbreak. Learn about both tonight. rAyMonD sIMon

Past the paper and ink, there’s a slew of chemistry that brings our currency to life.

He’ll also discuss other noteworthy ways these elements can be used in electronics and energy technologies, and explain why China has an interest in possessing—and recently withholding—these rare-earth elements and metals that are so important not only to the U.S. but also to other nations. pAulIne hIll

Stevie Jackson If you’re a fan of wistful Scots troubadours Belle and Sebastian, and you’re currently undergoing withdrawal symptoms, fear not: salvation is on its way. B&S guitarist, songwriter, and all-round good guy Stevie Jackson—and I should know; I once spilled a pint of Guinness on him at a Camera Obscura gig and he was surprisingly understanding—will be in town to promote his debut solo venture, the wonderfully titled (I Can’t Get No) Stevie Jackson. Expect a healthy dose of gentle Glaswegian bonhomie (no, that’s not an oxymoron), witty self-deprecation and a neat line in retro-pop romanticism. Crap dancing entirely optional, but to be expected.

Draw the Circle InterAct Theatre Company continues its successful festival Outside the Frame: Voices from the Other America with the world premiere production of Draw the Circle, a new autobiographical work from transgender playwright/performer Deen. Unlike most autobiographical plays, the story in Circle isn’t told from the author’s point of view. Instead, Deen tells his story about change, identity and acceptance from the point of view of those closest to him, such as his female partner, his friends and his family members, particularly his parents, conservative AmericanMuslim immigrants who struggle to accept their daughter as their son. Perhaps the only professional theater production in Philadelphia this season that explores the transgender experience, Deen explains that Circle is ultimately about “family and longing.” In this engrossing and revealing new play, we watch characters struggle to reconcile their longing for who they want a person to be with “the truth of what’s happening in front of them.” J.C.R.

Zombie Crawl

• 20

Blasphemous implications aside, bar-hopping zombies seem strangely befitting on the Christian holiday commemorating Jesus’ resurrection. The evening kicks off at the TLA, where professional makeup artists will offer zombie makeovers. Then, once given the go-ahead, the soulless corpses will follow “Zombie Jesus” out onto South Street, where they are welcomed to deviate from the pack in search of brains and booze. Several local bars will offer zombie-themed drink

and food specials for the occasion, including $3 “Brain Eater” shots at Lickety Split and “Zombie Sangria” at Tattooed Mom. At 10 p.m., everyone is invited back to the TLA for a post-crawl bash featuring DJ Kiltboy and Dave Ghoul, more drinking and a special performance from the Rigor Mortis Revue. Those still hungry for more can creep over to Fluid Nightclub for the official “Zombie After Dark” party featuring the dark and dirty sounds of DJs John Stanley and Robert Drake. N.F.

Jeffrey Lewis and the Junkyard “I might not be in magazines as a heartthrob face/ But in a few devoted years I’ve found a strong fanbase,” sings Jeffrey Lewis in “Cult Boyfriend,” the single from his latest album, A Turn in the Dream Songs. It’s a great song, talked more than sung—and furiously strummed in the anti-folk style, as Lewis tips the hat to the Misfits, WFMU, J.G. Ballard, Father Yod, and other fiercely if infrequently beloved idols. Lewis himself attracts an intense, oddball love, acknowledged in the song’s closing couplet: “And this song ain’t probably gonna go far past an open mic /I guaranteed though two or three people are really gonna like it.” Count me in.

ity that gets him in hot water with the nobles as much as the fact that his lover is a commoner. Stylish and boldly poetic, Marlowe’s play is loaded with the kind of complicated and passionate characters that actors love to portray. Director Adam Immerwahr’s all-star cast includes Curio Theatre artistic director Jared Reed as Edward, budding superstar James Ijames as the King’s boyfriend Galveston and talented writer/actor Krista Apple as Queen Isabella. Dedicated to presenting rarely-produced classic theater that is accessible to everyone regardless of their income bracket, PAC’s free reading of Edward II is a rare opportunity for Philadelphians who can’t always afford theater tickets to experience great local actors performing one of theater’s most original and tragic tales of love.

Ghost Absorbed too much po-faced, super-aggressive metal? Ghost will guide you to another plane. The Swedish band lovingly embrace the theatrical, absurd side of their genre by presenting themselves as enigmatic, druid-like “Nameless Ghouls” who back Papa Emeritus, an ominous vocalist dressed in robes, a pope hat and skull makeup. Music-wise, Ghost aren’t nearly as creepy, crafting dynamic doom metal with shades of O.G. heavy metal acts like Blue Öyster Cult and Black Sabbath shining through. “We want our record to sound like a million-dollar production but from 1978,” one Ghoul told SF Weekly recently. Speaking of interviews, the Ghouls usually come off as relatively down-to-earth in conversation, which risks endangering their Satan-smitten aesthetic. But as long as they keep producing oneline gems such as “[Papa is] sort of like Eddie for Iron Maiden, except we have our Eddie singing,” hey, let the specters speak. R.a.

Leading his crew through freak summer ice-storms on the plains, plunging into freezing rivers, and handwrestling never-before-seen river monsters, this guy is the real deal.

Edward II Shakespeare gets all the ink, but the Bard was positively dull compared to his brilliant contemporary playwright/friend Christopher Marlowe. The bad boy of Elizabethan theater, Marlowe is finally getting his turn in the spotlight when the Philadelphia Artists Collective presents a reading of his thrilling gay romance Edward II. Writing with surprising frankness and ease about matters of sexual intimacy, it’s not Edward’s homosexual-

Michael Jackson: The Immortal World Tour

ith the success of his postmortem album, video game and movie, in addition to the $250 million contract extension with Sony Music, it seems the King of Pop could very well be a bigger cash cow in death than Elvis, Biggie and 2Pac combined. Now, fans have a chance to experience Jackson’s music and choreography in an entirely new and spectacular way: combined with Cirque du Soleil’s signature artistry, dance and aerial displays. Written and directed by Jamie King—who has worked with pretty much every major pop artist in the past decade—the $57 million production features 65 artists and takes audiences into M.J.’s inner creative world of magic and fantasy while creating a real concert experience. Mind-blowing visuals aside, the global messages of love, peace and unity in Jackson’s lyrics serve as the show’s backbone. Once the production’s two-year arena tour wraps up early next year, it will become a resident show in Vegas and no doubt continue to rake in a ton of dough. N.F.

Paco de Lucía In the early ’80s, flamenco guitar master Paco de Lucía teamed up with fellow acoustic shredders John McLaughlin and Al DiMeola to make Friday Night in San Francisco and Passion, Grace & Fire—albums that melted the brains of American jazz guitar geeks. But de Lucía has proven a timeless artist, an innovator who has brought traditional flamenco into contact with jazz and other modern sounds. His taut rhythms and lightning staccato solo runs are instantly recognizable—and richly documented on his new two-disc release En Vivo: Conciertos Live in Spain 2010. His troupe in Philly will include keyboard, bass, percussion, two vocalists and a young dancer named Farruco. daVId R. adLER

On the Gaydar From Mr. Philadelphia Drag King to the Pop-Up Museum of Queer History. The Temperamentals

Few people are aware of gay pioneer Harry Hay. The exploits of Hay and his lover, Rudi Gernreich, are at the center of Jon Marans’ acclaimed 2009 play The Temperamentals, which makes its Philly debut in a production from the city’s best GLBT troupe, Mauckingbird Theatre Company, this month. Set in the early 1950s during the height of McCarthyism, Hay initially lived a covert life as both a gay man and a communist, a dangerous combination in a nation that vilified both. Hay and Gernreich likewise kept their romance secret for a time, but eventually joined with other “temperamentals” (a code word Hay created to refer to gay men) to form the Mattachine Society, the nation’s first viable gay-rights organization. In his important and informative play, Marans reveals the story behind the Society’s members who, years before Stonewall and Harvey Milk, walked out of the closet and began the battle for equality. (J. Cooper Robb) April 11-29. $15$25. Skybox at The Adrienne Theatre, 2030 Sansom St. 215.923.8909. mauckingbird.org

Buck Angel

P H I L A D E L P H I A W E E K LY April 4 - 10, 2012

Articulate, handsome and well-built, Buck Angel exudes the kind of self-confidence that signals a man comfortable in his own skin. And yet he was born female. Puberty wreaked havoc on this former tomboy, who struggled with depression and drugs until his late 20s, when he met a sympathetic therapist. Today, Buck is a successful porn star who won Transsexual Performer of the Year at the Adult Video News Awards in 2007. He’s also become an increasingly visible sex-positive public-health advocate, speaking at feminist sex-toy shops and college campuses. Buck shares his hardearned wisdom in two upcoming workshops at the Sexploratorium this month. “Sexing the Trans Man” covers a variety of topics, including cruising for hot transmen, how to make their toes curl and the “The Buck Angel Effect,” which focuses on embracing your body and staying healthy. Buck’s experience may appear unique, but his message of acceptance, comfort and pleasure applies to everyone. As an added bonus, Buck’s missus, Elayne Angel, will conduct a kinky play piercing workshop the same week. Pre-registration is encouraged. (Raymond Simon) Fri/13 and Sat/14, 7pm. $20-$30.

Mr. Philadelphia Drag King

All you lady fellas, it’s time to whip out your fishnets, shave those legs and comb out your sexiest wig, because a new king is about to be crowned. Produced by Liberty City Kings Drag & Burlesque, this popular annual benefit for the Philly Dyke March guarantees a night of raunchy good fun

The Temperamentals

with live performances from LiCK, Mr. PDK 2011, Rasta Boi Punany and more. Like other pageants, contestants will have to strut their stuff and prove themselves worthy during four competitive rounds: Runway, Performance, Q&A and Fantasy/Formal Wear. In addition to relinquishing the reigning king’s crown and toolbelt, the winner will go home with a bag of goodies from the event’s sponsors, performance opportunities with LiCK, the Dyke March and Outfest and, of course, the chance to wave from a sweet-ass ride during the Pride Day Parade in June.

The Pop-Up Museum of Queer History

The Pop-Up Museum is a grassroots organization that works with communities around the country to create and promote installations, gallery shows, public art and memorials that bring to light the rich, long and largely unknown histories of queer people. The traveling show stops in Philly this month, featuring nearly 20 exhibits employing an array of divergent media including fiber arts and video montage. Some of the individual exhibits include a documentation of the use of drag in Mummers parades dating back to the 1880s; a sculptural memorial for queer communities in Uganda threatened by a proposed law that makes queerness punishable by death; and a video history

Black Gay Pride Week

During the last week in April, Philadelphia celebrates Black Gay Pride Week. The weeklong festival features workshops, discussion panels, poetry and plenty of parties. The annual Mr. and Miss Black Gay Philadelphia Pride Pageant kicks off the festivities on April 22 at Gershman Hall with as much muscle as sex appeal. If you’re too young to drink, check out the Youth Fashion Show on

Tuesday at the William Way Center. If you’re the romantic type and looking for your future ex-boyfriend, make a first good impression during speed dating events on Wednesday and Friday. For the less superficial and more sophisticated, compete in a game of bowling on Wednesday and a classy spoken-word event at the Art Garage on Thursday. The week closes Saturday at the Crowne Plaza hotel with Pride workshops during the day and a Carribean Heat party later that night. (Matt Petrillo) April 22-28.

Pâté cake, pâté cake: This is the best sweet potato dish you’ll ever have.

or better or worse—though, really, it’s probably worse—we live in a world that’s perceived as binary. As far as most people are concerned, you’re either a Democrat or a Republican. You like rock or classical music. Drink red or white wine. Eat meat or sustain yourself as a vegetarian. The truth, however, is generally more complicated than any simple dichotomy can ever really convey. If it weren’t, then our lives would be a hell of a lot less interesting than they are, and certainly less textured. I bring this up because Richard Landau and Kate Jacoby’s Vedge, which resides in the stunning space once occupied by Deux Cheminées, does more to bridge the chasm between the artificially distant worlds of the omnivore and the vegan than any restaurant I’ve ever visited. It’s proof, to butcher the old Forrest Gump cliché, that great food is as great food

does, regardless of how you categorize its constituent ingredients. Sweet potato pâté, for example, looks familiar enough: the deep autumnal orange, the mustard seeds atop it like some kind of earth-toned caviar. So you’d be forgiven for assuming, prior to your first bite, that this is some kind of Thanksgiving hors d’oeuvre redux. It’s not. Throughout the menu, Landau finds clever and wholly successful ways to coax added depth from his impeccably sourced ingredients, making them simultaneously more interesting than you may have thought possible and shimmeringly expressive of their inherent character. Here, the hot smoking to which he subjects the potato lends it a bass note against which the expected sweetness jumps. Jerk-spiced cashews gently sizzle with their cumin and paprika. It’s an ingenious preparation, and you’ll likely be upset when you finish it.

Grilled gochujang tofu boasts three (three!) separate rounds of marinating and arrives in a shallow pool of smoked miso dashi, crowned by a translucent lace of yuba “cracklin,” and accompanied by an edamame puree: soy beans four ways, each of them remarkable.

Vedge

1221 Locust St. 215.320.7500 Cuisine: Ambitious, creative vegan. Hours: Mon.-Thurs., 5-10pm; Fri.-Sat., 5-11pm. Price range: $4-$16. Atmosphere: The old Deux Cheminées classicism has been modernized without losing its stately soul. Food: Stunningly executed. Service: Very professional.

Landau uses both well-honed technique and exciting, unexpected spicing to make you forget that everything you’re eating is vegan. And the amazing thing is that I not only didn’t miss the animal products, but began to wonder at a certain point why I’d grown so reliant on them, as so many of us have. This is the perfect time for an ambitious vegan restaurant to open up. With so much of the Philadelphia public attuned to the benefits of eating locally and seasonally, the moment couldn’t be better. Landau and Jacoby are taking full advantage of this opportunity, sending out dish after dish that comfort and inspire in equal measure. Roasted golden beats are layered on pumpernickel with smoked tofu, avocado, capers, and a cucumber dill sauce to perfectly embody the fatty, satisfying richness of a smoked salmon sandwich. Pastrami-spiced carrots rest atop a sauerkraut-funky white-bean hummus; Famous 4th Street has nothing on this one. Plancha-roasted maitake mushrooms serve as a backdrop against which the sweet-nutty drama of an explosively flavorful celery root fritter can play out. Fingerling potatoes, smashed and then glazed with a creamy worcestershire sauce, act like meat as much as they do starch. You don’t have to go all out, however, with your ordering. A glass of wine or beer from the well-curated list, alongside a small plate or two at the bar, is perfect in its own way. The house pickles—especially the turmeric-glowing cauliflower— scream out for a Riesling. Lupini beans streaked with piri piri reward an IPA. Or just go for dessert, which Jacoby also takes care of in addition to overseeing of the beverage program. Strawberry-sorrel bread pudding, herb-bright and punched up with saffron “ice cream,” is a stunner. Apple cake fritters, with their thick nutty shell and ethereal center, are livened up by cider caramel and an accompanying riff on waldorf salad. Densely flavorful and texturally perfect “cheesecake” is electric from the addition of pistachio pesto. In this election year of our collective discontent, Vedge goes a long way toward bridging, in the food realm, at least, our most deeply-held differences. And that, really, is what great restaurants are supposed to do: Bring us together, literally and symbolically, and give us shelter from the craziness outside. By that metric and so many others, Vedge gets it just right. n

The Strife of Life

The Outgoing Tide is a darkly humorous look at Alzheimer’s and family.

By J. Cooper Robb

W W W. P H I L A D E L P H I A W E E K LY. C O M

stage

The Philadelphia Theatre Company renews its relationship with local playwright Bruce Graham with its excellent production of The Outgoing Tide. Tide takes place in Elkton, Md., about an hour south of Philly (Graham knows the area because he has a home there), and follows a man named Gunner (Richard Poe), who is embarking on the final chapter of his life. A tough, blue-collar Philadelphian, Gunner sold the trucking company he built from scratch and along with his wife, Peg (Robin Moseley), has taken up perma-

While Gunner looks robust and remarkably fit for a man of his age, his mind is being stolen a piece at a time. The thief is Alzheimer’s.

nent residence at their home overlooking the water. We first encounter Gunner talking to a younger, middle-aged man named Jack (Tony Lawton). Gunner is telling Jack about the area, and we guess from the conversation that this is the first time the men have met. Tragically, that is not the case. Jack is Gunner’s 51-year-old son (a fact he’s reminded of by Peg). And while Gunner looks robust and remarkably fit for a man of his age, his mind is being stolen a piece at a time. The thief is Alzheimer’s. Director James J. Christy has collaborated with Graham often in the past, and his familiarity with the playwright is evident. There is nothing forced about the production; Christy’s aim is to present the play clearly and without embellishments of any kind. The performances are natural without being overly restrained, and the lighting, set and costumes are all designed to be realistic and functional. Like

Father figure: Jack (Anthony Lawton, left) and Peg (Robin Moseley, right) struggle to come to terms with Gunner’s Alzheimer’s (Richard Poe).

Graham’s play, Christy’s production is a straightforward, focused and forceful depiction of a family in crisis. Graham appears to have a knack for writing authentic male characters: both Poe’s Gunner and Lawton’s Jack ring true to our daily lives. Gunner is accustomed to tough fights (he brags about his dealings with the Teamsters), but he’s finally met an opponent he can’t lick. Jack is neither as secure nor as rugged as his father, but he is a skilled mediator, accustomed to refereeing his parents’ disputes. The surprise in Graham’s writing is the insight and clarity he brings to the play’s lone female, Peg. In Moseley’s strong performance, Peg is a smart, practical woman who has no intention of abandoning her husband. She has dedicated her life to her family (she describes taking care of them as her “only skill”)

and she’s the sort of person who needs to feel needed. Armed with brochures from the area’s best retirement homes and health-care facilities, she has made plans for the difficulties that inevitably lie ahead. Gunner, however, has made his own plans. (Gunner and Peg visited the retirement home’s medical center and he wants no part of it.) “A man takes care of his family,” he announces to Peg and Jack. “If they were dogs, we’d put them to sleep,” he says referring to the elderly patients attached to respirators and other life-giving machines. “If you have to feed someone Jell-O through a tube, it’s time to give up,” he concludes. Despite all of this talk about death, Tide isn’t a downer. Graham’s sardonic wit and dark humor come across very clearly. Although the script doesn’t shy away from exposing the disturbing effects of Alzheimer’s, at its core Tide

is really about family relationships of all kinds: father-son, mother-son and husband-wife. Audiences will no doubt debate the play’s conclusion, and some people will find Tide’s unsentimental exploration of Alzheimer’s to be troubling. Others, however, may find cause for celebration in the final scene. Regardless of how you perceive the characters’ actions, Graham’s candid play is bound to provoke a response. n

Stranger Things Have Never Happened at Gallery 309

P H I L A D E L P H I A W E E K LY April 4 - 10, 2012 • 32

If you’ve watched Resurrect Dead: The Mystery Of The Toynbee Tiles—Philadelphian Jon Foy’s film about the bizarre tiles embedded in numerous streets in Philadelphia and around the country—then you know Justin Duerr. He’s the guy who’s obsessed with finding the elusive tiler and who leads the wild investigation that unfolds. (If you haven’t seen it, Gallery 309 is screening Resurrect Dead on April 13 and 27.) A similar spirit of wonder is alive in Duerr’s drawings, many of which depict fantastical lands and cityscapes where humans and unusual creatures converge. Gallery 309’s exhibit of Duerr’s work includes 13 large drawings made with Sharpies, colored pens and highlighters, and a series of smaller drawings requiring a magnifying glass to see. “The story started around 1995, with roots as far back as 1986,” Duerr says about the narrative running through the large pieces. “It started out pretty violent, and then turned into a more nuanced tale about the relationship between some basically immortal warriorqueens who try to subvert the forces that caused primordial cosmic suffering, and

also they’re architects who build actual utopian cities with just their thoughts.” The smaller works are designed to force people to pay attention and, as Duerr says, to foster a sort of meditative trance akin to the one he experienced drawing them. “The flood of detail,” he says, “causes an experience perhaps more akin to looking through a kaleidoscope than a magnifying glass.” (Elliott Sharp) Fri/6, 6-9pm. Through April 30. Gallery 309, 309 Cherry St. 464.483.3309. gallery309.com

Phoning It In From Yogyakarta at Space 1026 Yes, Yogyakarta is a real place. Located on the island of Java—the most populated island in Indonesia—Yogyakarta is considered to be the center of artistic life in the country. And while the work of young contemporary Indonesian artists remains largely unknown overseas, the commercial and DIY art scene in Java actually rivals that of many European and American cities. During a recent trip to the country, local installation artist and photographer Lee Tusman was so overwhelmed by its flourishing DIY youth art scene, he’s now invited several young Javanese artists to phone in their work (via the Internet) to have it

printed and showcased here in Philly. The exhibit, which Tusman hopes will be the first of many, features the work of more than 10 different artists active in a variety of mediums—from contemporary painting and drawing to photography and screenprinting. This includes the politically driven cartoonlike posters from the underground art collective Taring Padi, and Wedhar Riyadi’s vibrant punk-rock inspired paintings. Drexel University Professor Brent Luvaas, who has toured the region extensively documenting their DIY subculture, will also be contributing a slideshow of his photographs of street wear and street life in Java.

Threaded Interface at Grizzly Grizzly With all the textile art exhibitions that have cropped up across the city over the past month in conjunction with FiberPhiladelphia, Threaded Interface certainly has an innovative edge. The collaborative, interactive installation of Detroit-based artists Annica Cuppetelli and Cristobal Mendoz, combines reactive video projections with physical structures, turning fabric from a flat plane into a three-dimensional form. The entire gallery space will be filled with fields of vertical and parallel lines made of accumulations of synthetic fiber and illuminated with a video projection generated through a custom software program. What exactly is this “interactive” element, you ask? Well, the physical

Always welcoming of fresh and unconventional artwork, Extra Extra’s featured works this month aim to expose the connection between feelings of apocalypse and the idea of the tropical “getaway.” Although this may sound like a somewhat convoluted concept, the imagery it elicits is pretty straightforward: destruction, fear, hopelessness. With a rather diverse group of artists having been invited to showcase their work, you can expect an interesting collection of interpretations, including Rachel de Joode’s wonderfully absurd installations and sculptures, Erin M. Riley’s surprisingly provocative hand-woven tapestries and Alex Lucas’ dismal depictions of urban landscapes. (N.F.) Fri/6, 6pm. Through April 29.

Out of Nigeria at Tribal Home Art represents only a small fraction of Fatima Adamu’s creative gifts. After receiving her bachelor’s degree in geography and urban studies from Temple, the 30-year-old spent three years working as a city planner and urban designer. Meanwhile, over the years, the self-taught painter has found success as a dancer, singer, model and, currently, a yoga instructor. Born in Philadelphia and raised in Nigeria, Adamu is largely inspired by the summers she spent as a child helping her father harvest crops on his farm in the West African city of Kaduna. In her paintings, she channels the sight and feelings of the rich soil running through her fingers with matte, dense textures. Incoportating her professional career, Adamu also uses detailed line-work reminiscent of architectural drawings and anatomical illustrations. And giving her artwork even greater depth, Adamu will celebrate the exhibit’s opening by performing songs in her native Nupe language. (N.F.) Fri/6, 7:30pm. Through April 30. Tribal Home, 56 N. Third St. 215.592.4215.


Six Pack Six Art House Sequels By Matt Prigge mprigge@philadelphiaweekly.com

Antoine and Colette (1962): The 400 Blows doesn’t exactly cry for a follow-up; its iconic final freezeframe says it all. A few years later, though, François Truffaut wondered what would happen if its troubled young hero, Antoine Doinel, had aged as in life. What would his first major heartbreak look like? Truffaut kept wondering and, over the next two decades, periodically dropped in on Doinel’s life, yielding 1968’s Stolen Kisses, 1970’s Bed & Board and 1979’s Love on the Run, its star aging along the way. 2046 (2004): Around the same time Before Sunrise begat Before Sunset and Ingmar Bergman wrangled up Scenes From a Marriage’s divorcees for Saraband, Wong Kar-Wai mounted this quasi-sequel to In the Mood for Love. Alas, Tony Leung’s ’60s brooder went it alone, transformed by a busted heart into a mustachioed lothario who jettisons ladies (among them Zhang Ziyi) when he isn’t writing about lovelorn androids. The Wayward Cloud (2005): In which Taiwanese minimalist Tsai Ming-liang takes one of his nicest films—2001’s What Time is it There?—and inverts it into his bleakest, where the former’s hero (Lee Kangsheng) is now a porn star trying to survive an epic drought. Fay Grim (2006): Indie smart-aleck Hal Hartley had an artistic breakthrough that was 1997’s Henry Fool. Then he fell off the map. Hartley regained some footing by making its totally unexpected sequel, and doing it weirdly: A heavy drama is now a wacky spy romp, revealing that Thomas Jay Ryan’s failed novel was all along a McGuffin for Tom Clancy shenanigans.

The Salt of Life (2011): Gianni Di Gregorio’s followup to the charming Mid-August Lunch isn’t technically a sequel, but c’mon: It’s a good old-fashioned catch-up with characters—and a universe—well worth revisiting. n The Salt of Life

Doug can’t skate very well. He’s also not particularly good at hockey. But he’s brilliant at beating the absolute crap out of people, which naturally makes him a rising star in the sport. What’s so fascinatingly transgressive about Goon is that it accepts these vicious bouts of savagery—edited with a visceral impact obviously inspired by Raging Bull—as a gentleman’s code of conduct. Doug is the sweetest dim-bulb you could ever meet, but when the gloves come off he’ll knock your bloody teeth out, and then help you up off the ice. “Good fight, man.” Moving up the ranks in the minor leagues, Doug finds himself on the Halifax Highlanders. This Nova Scotia outfit, with a hilariously incongruous Scottish merchandising brand, wasted their payroll budget on a $5 million contract for up-and-comer Xavier LaFlamme (the epically sleazy Marc-Andre Grondin), who then blew all his money on cocaine and hookers after being beaten into quasi-vegetable status by aging, disgraced Boston Bruins castoff Ross Rhea (Liev Schrieber, a revelation.) “Where’s LaFlamme?

Life During Wartime (2009): Todd Solondz is no stranger to gimmicks: witness the multiple actresses playing the same character in Palindromes. In this unasked-for sequel to his signature misery-fest Happiness, he recast the whole picture: Paul Reubens is now Jon Lovitz and Philip Seymour Hoffman gets replaced by—who else?—Michael K. Williams. But there’s real anguish to the idea of people so unhappy that even literally becoming other people doesn’t help. No matter its appearance, the body is always the same prison.

Gianni Di Gregorio was one of the six writers on the mafia saga Gomorrah, which crammed what felt like an entire season of HBO programming into an approachable feature. His subsequent work has been, to put it lightly, more chill. Di Gregorio, now in his 60s, parlayed his Gomorrah stint into a late-blooming directing career, dedicated, so far, to light souffles. Only those who think ambitious means better will think this a step down. Mid-August Lunch is deceptively slight, with a white-wine-guzzling, middleaged slacker (played by Di Gregorio) taking care of a gaggle of elderly women. The Salt of Life is not technically a sequel, but it features Di Gregorio once again tending to his nonagenarian sparkplug mother (Valeria de Franciscus, also returning). And since sequels, even sequels-of-sorts like this, need to be bigger and better, he’s also supplying respite for his daughter, his daughter’s boyfriend, his oft-AWOL wife, his mother’s friends and seemingly anyone else who needs an errand run or a dog walked. Simultaneously laid-back and harried, with a leathery face and toothy smile that an animator would love, Di Gregorio’s Gianni was the aloof center of chaos in Mid-August Lunch. The Salt of Life finds him belatedly looking out for No. 1. Frazzled by his mother’s over-spending and the fear that he could, if left unattended, become just another old man wasting his autumn years, Gianni decides to look for love—or at least lust over Italy’s scantily dressed lasses. The existence of a mission automatically makes Salt more ambitious than Lunch, and though this follow-up is less beautiful, less frenzied and more written than its predecessor, the lackadaisical drive remains. Driven but lazy, Gianni hits a series of romantic dead ends, always winding up sucked once again into, say, fixing his mother’s television’s unreliable plugs. The unresolved sadness that haunts Salt makes for a meatier sophomore effort, albeit one whose structure is slightly closer to standard than the borderline experimental Lunch. Still, it’s more of nearly the same, meaning that Di Gregorio has made a relaxed master movie with only his second film. n

The Raid: Redemption

Grade: B Review by Sean Burns

34

A triumph of fight choreography, spatial relations and precious little else, writer-director Gareth Evans’ The Raid: Redemption is an exercise in pure craftsmanship. There’s not really any “there” to be found here, but as such traditional virtues of camera placement and editing coherence are at a premium these days, I’ll gladly take it. Set in a Jakarta housing project overseen by a sadistic crime lord who uses a hammer whenever he runs out of bullets, The Raid: Redemption’s premise is almost comically simple. A bunch of under-equipped cops attempt to storm the building, contending with an army of dealers, low-lifes and bloodthirsty thugs, floor by floor by floor. It would probably feel like a video game, if the old-fashioned, non-CGI violence didn’t look like it hurt so much. Iko Uwais stars as Rama, an idealistic rookie with a pregnant wife at home and a dark family secret or two that may just come out during the movie’s Spartan plotting. A superstar in the Indonesian martial art known as silat, Uwais is a genius with his fists. Evans’ savviest move is finding an excuse for him to run out of ammo early in the picture, as the hand-to-hand battles are far more satisfying than gunplay. The sheer relentlessness of The Raid: Redemption must be admired. It’s a well-oiled machine, shifting backdrops from room to room, exploiting every last prop or set dressing for maximum lethal impact. The pacing alternates between full-tilt massacres to slow-burn suspense sequences. Unlike his Hollywood counterparts, Evans doesn’t feel a need to shake the camera around for no fucking reason during an action scene. Everything here is classically composed, blocked largely in wide shots, so we can always tell who is where in relation to one another. I never thought I’d see the day where I’d be extolling such basic competence as an exception to the rule, but desperate times call for desperate measures. I just wish there was a little more to it. I saw The Raid: Redemption a week ago and can already barely remember any particulars. The opposing-brothers-on-differentsides-of-the-law plot is strictly by the numbers from the martial arts movie playbook, and Evans is such a smoothly efficient engineer that he’s got little time for the weird character flourishes that may have made the movie more than what it is. Although what it is ain’t nothing to sneeze at. n

By Dan Savage  mail@savagelove.net I have an awesome relationship with an awesome guy. He loves me and takes care of me. I’m GGG and he’s vanilla. I only draw the line at poop, animals and children. But he’s never asked me for anything other than vanilla sex. Which is why I don’t know what to do. I went downstairs late the other night, and he was sitting on the couch masturbating while stroking the cat, which was sitting on his chest. The cat was sitting ON him, Dan, WHILE he was yanking himself. I don’t know if he saw me. I went right back upstairs and went to bed. In the morning, he acted like nothing happened. Now I don’t know what to do. Confront him? Get him help? Get rid of the cat? Can’t Analyze This

Your pot analogy is a big fail, OMU: Different drugs have different risks, to say nothing of different chemical compositions and psychotropic effects. That anti-drug crusaders overstated the dangers of marijuana to advance their anti-hippie, pro-incarceration or blatantly racist political agendas does not prove that meth is safe. Meth, unlike pot, is highly addictive. While there’s no such thing as a fatal dose of pot, there is such a thing as a fatal dose of meth. And while abusing pot—and pot can be abused—makes a person lethargic and lardy, abusing meth makes a person crazy and dead. But hey, why should you take my word about meth, college girl? What do I know about meth? It’s not like I’ve ever used meth, right? “Most meth addicts started out feeling like meth was the perfect fix to a ‘problem’ like needing extra time to study,” says gay porn star Trenton Ducati. “I started out using meth ‘occasionally,’ too. Pretty much all meth users start out that way. And it’s not novel to think your life is in control, and that you’ve got it all together—everybody who gets addicted to meth thinks that.” Trenton says that people who use meth—even occasionally—are the worst judges of whether they have a meth problem. “Meth wound up taking me places that I’m sure OMU doesn’t want to go,” says Trenton. “There is just no way to use meth safely. Even if she is not willing to listen to those who’ve come before her— and it sounds like she’s not—she could at least refrain from promoting a drug that has ruined so many lives.” (Gay-porn fans—particularly fans of behind-the-scenes pics of porn shoots—can follow Trenton Ducati on Twitter: @TrentonDucati.) And maybe you didn’t learn the word “sophistry” when you were cramming for the SATs, OMU, but you might want to look it up. It’s never too late to expand the ol’ vocabulary—or to put down the meth pipe.

I agree with almost everything you say, Dan, but I have one complaint: You have made several comments over the years bashing meth users! I know, I know—meth has a bad reputation. But people used to say that smoking pot caused insanity! Don’t believe the hype! Being a meth addict is not good, but occasional use never hurt anyone. I only do it maybe five times a year, and unlike what you see in anti-meth ads, I’m not crazy, I don’t have holes in my skin and I’m not a junkie. Instead, I’m a straight-A female student from a wealthy suburban family. You know when I really like to get some meth? Around finals, so that I have lots of extra time to study. Stop bashing meth, Dan! Occasional Meth User

I’m a 25-year-old straight male who’s into big-dick porn. I’m not into the dicks per se, Dan. It’s the domination and dirty-talk aspects of big-dick porn that turn me on, i.e., hearing a woman say things like, “That’s huge!”; “Stop!”; “You’re too big for me!” I’m not too bad off down there, but I want more. Significantly more. Do you have any recommendations on enlargement techniques? Pumps, pills, whatever? I have a partner who is sub and very GGG. I would really like to be able to play these fantasies out, but I know nothing of the feasibility. An Enlarging Problem

Pets want to be petted, and some pets are pushy about getting their pet on. Bearing that in mind, CAT, I want you to pick the two likeliest scenarios out of these four options: A. Your boyfriend is attracted to your cat. B. Your awesome boyfriend—unlike so many other boyfriends—is capable of doing two things at once. C. Your boyfriend fantasizes about fucking the Almond Roca out of your cat’s ass. D. Your awesome boyfriend needed to rub one out and he was considerate enough to slip out of bed and go downstairs—so as not to wake you (he’s awesome like that)—and there he was, lying back on the couch, concentrating on the task at hand, when the cat jumped up on his chest. Now, you were there, CAT, and I wasn’t, which means you’re in a much better position to judge. But I think B and D are the likeliest scenarios: Your boyfriend was having a wank when the cat jumped on him, for a few moments he divided his attentions between stroking the cat and stroking himself—those moments you were unlucky enough to witness—and at some point he pushed the cat off his chest and turned back to the task at hand. But, again, you were there, CAT, I wasn’t. So did it look like your boyfriend was masturbating about the cat, with the cat, or at the cat? Or did it look like your boyfriend was masturbating in the immediate vicinity of the cat? These are questions that only you can answer. And here’s a question that only your boyfriend can answer, CAT, and I think you should put it to him: “I came down the other night and you were beating off with the cat sitting on your chest— what was that about?” And here’s the answer you’re likely to get: “I was jerking it and the cat jumped up on me and I petted her for a minute mid-wank—but I didn’t want to lose my hard-on and have to start all over, so the part of my brain that regulates higher boner function instructed my right hand to go into erection-maintenance mode. But I wasn’t perving on the cat, honey, I swear.” Your awesome boyfriend will say that even if he was perving on the cat, CAT. But if he has the decency and good sense to lie to you about it, you should have the decency and good sense to pretend to believe him.

There’s nothing you can do to make your dick bigger. Pills only waste your money, pumps only bruise your dick. (Yes, a pump can make your dick look a little bigger, temporarily, but your temporarily bigger dick will also be a whole lot softer, AEP, and what’s the use of that?) Your only options for safely exploring your big-dick fantasies are strap-ons (not just for dykes anymore) and cock extenders (hollow dildos that a guy can wear on his dick). You’ll find a nice selection of cock extenders here: tinyurl.com/cockextend. Finally, AEP, I trust that you stop when your girlfriend—or any woman—says, “Stop!” unless you and your partner have pre-agreed to a safe word that (1) isn’t “stop” but means “stop” and (2) allows her scream, “Stop!” to her heart’s content.
