I worked on an upcoming web series which we shot at the Media Bureau earlier this month. Bernard who runs the acting school out of Media Bureau helped us with casting, as well as acting in a supporting character role.

This was my third experience at the Media Bureau. I had been there a few times for the Philly Independent Film Festival, which was great. I have to say this was my best experience there despite the heat. They provided plenty of water which was great! I was blown away by the bands and how organized the show actually was. Even at “real venues” sometimes the sound is horrible or bands are late to play but this was very professional. Very Impressed! Go Harmonica Lewinskies! ROB BETTEGA, via

Whine Critic Regarding Brian Freedman’s review of wine lists in Philadelphia: One thing that bothers me as a wine buff is the outrageously high markups on so many wine lists, usually 300 percent or more over their own cost. I can often purchase a bottle at Canal for about what the restaurants charge for one glass of the same exact wine. Therefore, I was very interested in learning where those “more affordable” wine lists are that are promised in the headline. What a ripoff! In the entire article there is not one price cited of either a glass or a bottle of more affordable wine at any restaurant, just some generalizations and quotes about wine lists having more unfamiliar choices than they used to. Could this have something to do with the fact that Freedman is a restaurant wine consultant? LEN LEAR, via

MilkBoy’s union saga, continued. jeff fusco

In concert: Co-owners Tommy Joyner (left) and Jamie Lokoff are eager to open up their new downtown coffee shop/music venue. It’s a recent afternoon inside the new downtown MilkBoy location, a two-floor space at 11th and Chestnut streets that will be coffee bar by morning, pub by afternoon

and music venue by night, and co-owner Tommy Joyner is hustling to get the place in shape to open up next week. “We’ve been doing some of this work ourselves to give it some heart,” says Joyner, gesturing around. He points at the coffee tables, which he carved out of chunks of oak butcher block and then stained chocolate brown. “When you’re out of money, you find ways to make it happen.” Upstairs, the stage that’s about to be installed will complete the space’s conversion from its former life as a book and magazine shop into a 200-capacity concert space reminiscent of the old Upstairs at Nick’s (the venue that used to be above Nick’s Roast Beef on Second Street in Old City that closed in 1999). Downstairs, artsy glass garage-door walls that will roll up on 11th Street, hardwood floors discovered beneath six inches of linoleum and restored terrazzo tile obliterates any remnants of

the former beauty supply shop. After almost a year of work, the space is positively transformed—and so is Joyner. As PW first reported back in March, Joyner and business partner Jamie Lokoff have been wading in shark-infested waters from almost the moment MilkBoy announced plans to expand its brand—music studios and then two coffee shops founded in the suburbs—into Philadelphia. To recap: U3 Ventures owns the property and is leasing it to MilkBoy through a deal with the city, which offered U3 Ventures a loan pending approval of the tenant in an effort to revitalize a particularly bedraggled strip of Chestnut Street. In other words, MilkBoy was personally approved by the city in good faith as a business that will work to class up the joint. But U3 Ventures didn’t hire all union workers so, in retaliation, the Philadelphia Carpenter’s Union dispatched a goon squad to MilkBoy Coffee in Ardmore. Since last fall, picketers have stood outside MilkBoy holding signs and handing out fliers enblazoned with spurious statements about Joyner and Lokoff. The picketers had an impact on the coffee shop’s bottom line, setting profits off by about 15 percent. Joyner and Lokoff had expected some hassle at the downtown worksite, but they hadn’t anticipated guys with Jersey plates to drive out to Ardmore every day, spitting and throwing trash on the sidewalk in front of their business.

encountered,” he says. “It wasn’t all roses getting this place opened. It seemed like everyone ... dragged their feet.” Like Philadelphia Gas Works, which refused to install meters so long as the protesters were outside. “[They said], ‘We will not cross picket lines, as long as they’re out there we will not cross,’” says Joyner. “I [asked], ‘How can you not cross the picket line? You’re a public utility and you’re the only gas company I’m allowed to use.’” Although unable to comment on specific accounts due to privacy concerns, PGW spokeswoman Melanie McCottry confirms the policy. “Per our union contract, we do not cross the picket line except in situations where it is an emergency,” says McCottry. “Unions, they stick together.” So a cat-and-mouse game went on where, according to Joyner, PGW kept stopping by (“to their credit”) to check if the picketers were still outside. If they were, they split. Eventually, a PGW employee stopped by at a time the carpenter’s union wasn’t hanging around and they installed the meter. It took four months. Then there was an unscheduled visit from the building inspector. “You’re supposed to call when you’re ready,” says Joyner. Instead, an inspector just showed up unannounced and, according to Joyner, walked directly to the oven hood and announced, ‘This fails.’” Then there was the time an S-lock mysteriously slipped itself into the gate, temporarily locking some construction workers inside. At this point, it’s hard for the MilkBoy guys to tell what renovation delays are a direct result of this union debacle and what can be chalked up to extraordinary systemic inefficiency. Is it paranoia when they really are out to get you? “I don’t feel political,” insists Joyner. “I just feel like a businessman trying to get something done.” He doesn’t really want to talk about it anymore, but it’s hard not to want to set the record straight. He doesn’t want to feel like a “schmuck.” “I’d really like to move on,” sighs Joyner. Once the venue is open, it’ll be a huge relief. Then he can focus on his passions, like the fair-trade coffee, local beers and organic foodstuffs he’s eager to serve, and the mix of national and local bands that will play upstairs. MilkBoy should be open for business within the next week. Walk down Chestnut, and you can’t miss it. It’ll be the sleek and modern storefront amidst jewelry stores and low-end handbag shops. And, likely, it’ll be the one with a giant inflatable rat—they’re manufactured, by the way, at a nonunion shop in Ohio—pumped full of hot air. Nice reward for helping pull this little strip of the city out of the gutter. “I would say I learned my lesson,” says Joyner. n

Organized-Labor Pains

Suddenly, these mild-mannered artiststurned-entrepreneurs were caught in the middle of a public debate about the role of unions in the U.S. After trying to keep it light by responding with funny T-shirts parodying the picketers’ absurd “Shame on MilkBoy” sign, Joyner and Lokoff spoke out, vocalizing the open dirty secret of Philadelphia entrepreneurship—if you don’t hire all union to build in this city you will be harassed, or worse. Against the backdrop of the union debacle going down in Wisconsin at the time (Gov. Scott Walker passed a budget that included stripping bargaining rights from state employees), the story went viral, saturating local media. CBS quoted Pat Gillespie, head of the Building and Trades Council, as saying, “The carpenters won’t let up because there’s much more at stake.” He’s right. They didn’t let up. Five months later and on the verge of opening the new joint, Joyner wonders if speaking out was a good idea. “Has it helped me? I don’t know. It helped me feel like I’m not a schmuck. But has it actually helped me? I don’t think so,” says Joyner. “Because honestly we feel like we’re being picked on by a large, highly funded, highly organized organization, not to be redundant. There’s just no way to get back at them because you think you’re getting somewhere, and [then] your place gets lit on fire.” According to Capt. Jeffrey Thompson of the Philadelphia Fire Department, fire trucks were dispatched to 1100 Chestnut St. at 4:32 p.m. on Friday, June 17. A passer-by had noticed flames and called 911. “The fire marshal concluded that the cause was incendiary,” says Thompson. “It was intentionally set.” Meaning: arson. According to the fire marshal report, the fire originated in the center of the floor. The arsonist made a nest of debris, doused it with accelerant and dropped a match. Joyner couldn’t believe it. “Someone would have to hide in here or have the key and let themselves in,” he says. Luckily, the sprinkler system kicked in right away, so the fire didn’t do any real physical damage; the construction schedule was only set back one day. But it burnt an impression into Joyner’s mind. “We didn’t really go public with it. It was one of the travails of getting the place open that we chalked up to experience. I talked to union guys afterward and I said, ‘I want you to know, we heard the message. We fucked up. We got it.’ And they were like, ‘I don’t know what you’re talking about, there’s no way we’d start a fire.’ I [said], ‘OK, but if there was a message in that, we got it.’” Joyner goes back and forth between sounding incredulous and throwing up a white flag. He is careful. “I can’t link [the fire] to the unions, I can only say it was part of the trials and another difficulty we

The body odor permeating the confined South Philly arena runs about as deep as the 700 people packed inside. The floor is sticky. Many in the crowd are drunk. On this July evening, they’ve come from near and far with a common goal: to witness someone “get knocked the fuck out,” as one fan puts it, during a night of mixed-martial-arts cage fighting. Inside the cage, Nathan Vantassel, a Central Pa.-based fighter with an extensive kung-fu background, is set for his first professional match. He’s going head-to-head with seasoned Philly fighter Matt Nice, a small, pasty, mustached Jiu-Jitsu-trained mixed martial artist. The bell rings. They feel each other out, exchanging brief kicks to the legs. Nice slowly backs away, watching his opponent closely and dodging short, tight punches to his face, then getting tossed against the cage. Within seconds, Nice explodes, landing

two punches to his opponent’s temple. Vantassel goes limp and falls hard on his back. On his way down, he suffers two more hits to the jaw. He’s lifeless. “Welcome to Philly!” screams a fan. A blue rubber-gloved medic opens the door to the cage and rushes in, waving his arms and blocking Nice from doing further damage to his opponent. Nice climbs the cage, straddles it and raises an arm in celebration to the cheers of dozens of fans and friends down in the crowd. In the midst of the excitement, a youngish-looking blondhaired man in a green tie and black suit poses for a photo with a fan in the front row. They stand next to each other, arms over one another’s shoulders, the other hand at shoulder height balled into fists. The guy in the suit is 26-year-old Fran Evans, and tonight’s

festivities are compliments of his MMA promotion, Locked in the Cage. It’s been two-and-a-half years since Pennsylvania legalized professional mixed martial arts and Evans is betting the sport—once deemed too violent for American viewers and called a “human cockfight” by politicians nationwide— is set to explode in Philadelphia. If it does, it’ll be at least partly because of him. “Here in Philly, the scene is already really big. But the world don’t know it, and neither does the country. I need to change that,” Evans says.


Locked in the Cage’s first event was held in November 2009 at the Alexandria Hall at Sherman Mills in East Falls. Evans sold about 2,000 tickets. Since then, he’s put on shows at the Philadelphia Armory and the South Philly arena. He’s

hoping to move up to larger venues like the Class of 1923 arena in West Philly, the Liacouras Center and, eventually, the Wachovia Center. “I have to be able to do small-time shows first,” he says. “I mean, I’d love to go straight to selling 10,000 tickets for a single event, but that’s not how it works. Thinking like that is how companies go out of business.” Locked in the Cage tickets usually range from $40 to $85. It’s just a week before the South Philly fight and Evans’ phone is ringing off the hook. His desk—one of two in the 500-square-foot Port Richmond warehouse space he’s been renting for a week since moving out of his Kensington home-office—is a mess, full of old fliers, tickets to future shows, plastic bags filled with rubber bands and sauce packets from various fast-food restaurants. Hundreds of Ultimate Fighting Championship DVDs sit stacked kneehigh in a corner. Three large place cards, numbered 1 to 3, are scattered across the floor. A bloodied pair of shorts sits in a picture frame, leaning against a white wall. Somewhere in the mess, Evans puts together cage-fighting shows. There’s tons of work to do before the 11-match fight night and Evans is visibly tired. He’s been staring at a computer all day, reading profiles at, watching amateur mixed martial arts fights on YouTube and negotiating deals with trainers across the eastern seaboard. There are still many details to attend to, including making sure the hotels for the out-of-town fighters are set up and that everybody’s ready for the pre-fight weigh-ins in a few days. Luckily, he has help. The second desk in the office belongs to Paul Miles, a 30-something social media professional Evans hired a month ago. The two met when Miles—having spent his 20s moving from job to job—decided to take some time to pursue a dream. “I wanted to be involved in sports,” he says. So he a got a job working as assistant general manager for a semi-pro hockey team, and with a little extra time on his hands, became a self-described MMA nerd. Miles, who sums up his fighting career as having “jumped a kid in seventh grade after he said some shit about my mom,” started a blog all about local MMA and forced himself to learn as much about the sport as any fighter or trainer. Impressed with Miles’ self-taught knowledge, Evans hired him as matchmaker and director of operations. Their business plan was to promote local guys and prepare them for the next level of MMA fighting. “MMA used to be a circus sideshow,” says Miles. “Fifteen years ago, it was no-holds-barred, raw-dog shit fighting, where the biggest fighter was a guy ... who was nothing but a danger to society. But … it’s gone from two guys who fight in a cage to avoid going to jail to mixed martial artists who are some of the best athletes on the planet.” From 9 a.m.-to-whenever, Monday-through-Friday, Evans and Miles are very business casual. They do a lot of research and take plenty of notes. They argue with trainers and managers over fighters’ weight classes, their spot on the fight schedule and money. Evans also gets help from his childhood friends, whom he hires on a contractual basis from time to time to help promote his shows. “I’ve known Franny since he was just a little kid,” says buddy Pete Carter, who could easily win a DJ Pauly D (from MTV’s Jersey Shore) look-alike contest. Carter helps keep track of the hundreds of emails Evans receives daily and the street teams around the city, planting Locked in the Cage signs into soil along city avenues, posting them up on telephone polls and tying them to fences. Also on the street team: Local friends Marty Seider and Joe Fultano, the latter of whom photographs the events.


Being stuck inside an office is relatively new to Evans. The 150-pound son of a boxer began his MMA career inside the ring. He’d racked up about 50 amateur boxing matches by the time puberty hit. “When I was growing up, we were always fighting,” he says, describing a scene from the early

’90s, in which a local kid three years his senior challenged him to a fight on the street after hearing Fran was a gradeschool boxer. “I made him back up until he fell completely off the bike. Then I got a few good shots in before everybody jumped him.” After enrolling in North Catholic, he added freestyle wrestling into his repertoire. He competed in the 2003 Philadelphia Golden Gloves competition, winning the Outstanding Fighter Award. That same year he graduated high school, and soon dedicated his life to MMA. He started studying Muay Thai and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. A few years later, Evans had fought more than 100 regulated amateur boxing matches, eight Muay Thai fights and nine official MMA matches. He admits to having fought at several “Smokers”— underground Fight Club-style MMA matches—in New York, where the sport is still illegal. A month before Pennsylvania legalized mixed martial arts in February 2009, he bought a cage and set out to put Philly on the MMA map. “I knew it was going to get passed in Pennsylvania,” he says, “and there were going to be some doors opening up for me.” He incorporated his own company, Bentley Promotions (which later became Locked in Fran Evans, founder of Locked in the Cage

been in the ring to make sure fighters are treated fairly. “I’m a Philadelphia dude and I want to make sure these fighters are getting taken care of,” he says. “None of these guys are going to get screwed like I did … Every show is meant to build these guys’ careers and it builds what we’re doing.” Eddie Alvarez, local MMA star and champion of Bellator Fighting Championships at 155 pounds, says such local promotions are vital to early careers. “I think what [Locked in the Cage] is able to do is get the local amateurs and pros a platform to start off on,” he says. “Everyone needs a platform to build confidence, name recognition and show visibility.” A fellow North Catholic grad, Alvarez has placed the same bet as Evans: Philly will one day be synonymous with MMA. Alvarez recently opened his own MMA apparel and equipment store, the Red Corner, on Moyer Street in Fishtown. It’s the only one of its kind in the city, and is managed by Josh Huzak, another North Catholic grad and childhood friend. All Locked in the Cage weigh-ins take place at the Red Corner. Alvarez says his investment in the store is the first creative thing he’s done with the money he’s made fighting and he’s confident of the venture, saying it’s what and who Philly is. “The mentality that we have in this city; that tough, neversay-die attitude, that gives off the ability to be successful in any sport,” says Alvarez. “It’s not the technique that makes us fighters. That’s the easy part. It’s our mentality.”


the Cage), and started looking into the costs of renting out arenas, insuring and paying fighters. He’d later diversify his involvement in the sport, including running a fighter management business and doing matchmaking for a promotion company in Scranton. He still fought throughout 2009, and decided to push his promotion in May, after traveling to Richmond, Va., for an amateur bout. When Evans arrived for the fight, his opponent showed up late, overweight and covered in Vaseline—an illegal move that makes it nearly impossible for a fighter to get a grip and use submission tactics. “I had 50 people who came down from Philly for the fight,” he says, “so I wasn’t going to back out.” Though he lost, officials later ruled it a nocontest because “one of the officials saw all the Vaseline all over my gloves and saw I was all glossy and wasn’t before.” Evans decided then and there it was time to put all his effort into promotions. It was going to take someone who’d

The night before the fight in South Philly, shit is out of control. The fighters are making their way inside the Red Corner for the 7 p.m. weigh-in. At 6:30, Miles storms into the store, a cell phone pressed up against the side of his face, making nasty comments. “I don’t understand a word you just said,” he says, now plopped in front of a computer. “Fantastic,” he groans with bitter sarcasm. “Just get me the room number.” Fultano, the company’s photographer, rushes in next. “I’m ready to murder everybody,” he warns. “Traffic was so unreasonable, and I was coming into the city.” “It’s probably U2 traffic,” says Miles, now on hold. It’s a bad night to be shorthanded, but they are. Evans is taking the night off. He’s at the U2 concert. He put Miles in charge of running the weigh-in, and the pre-fight problems are mounting by the minute. Somehow, the hotels Evans and Miles had set up for the out-of-state fighters fell through, and there’s no sauna—a prerequisite for any fighter who might need to lose a couple pounds before weigh-ins—in the new accommodations. About half the fighters scheduled for the event are from out of town. Middletown, Pa.-based trainer Logan Hulstine enters the store with his fighters, Nathan Vantassel and Vinny Courts. He’s not happy. “I thought my hotel was supposed to be right down the street,” he says. “We were supposed to be at the Holiday Inn in South Philly, then I finally get in and there’s no sauna. I expect a lot more from Fran.” Aaron Carter—aka “Hillbilly Havoc”—has his own beef with the promotion team. The Richmond, Va.-based fighter with a shaggy beard and heavy accent, true to his moniker, says he thought he’d be fighting a guy named Francisco Tavares. But Tavares is listed under his middle name, Daniel, and Carter’s been doing research on the wrong fighter for his match. “They got shit all fucked up,” says Carter. “The guy I’m supposed to be fighting isn’t even the guy I’m fighting … Turns out he’s this world phenomenon Jiu-Jitsu black belt. “Who the fuck am I fighting?” Additionally, Carter needs a sauna, now. His usual weight is 185, but he was supposed to get down to 155 for this match. He missed the mark by four pounds. Without a sauna, he’s screwed. “I took this fight on three days, had to cut 30 pounds,” says Carter, who will be fined $100 by the athletic commission for not making weight. When told that Evans, the man in charge, is at the U2 concert, Carter

A few minutes later, Ferraro agrees to fight Hobbs at 140, instead of the original 135. Which means Hobbs still has to make weight and lose five pounds before the night is over. “I’ve got you,” says Red Corner manager Josh Husak, a black phone sandwiched between his ear and shoulder. “We’ve got a bunch of fighters here who need a sauna,” he says into the phone. “Is it OK if they come down? They’ve got a fight tomorrow.” Huzak agrees to give the City Fitness manager with whom he’s on the phone free tickets to let the fighters in. He hangs up and tells Hobbs to go to the gym at Second and Spring Garden streets. “Weigh-ins are just like that,” says Travis Collins, an MMA blogger who covered the event for “No one ever makes weight.” By 8:30, Miles is standing outside the shop in a daze.

sneers, “I don’t know anyone in the straight community who still listens to U2.” Local fighter Phil Ferraro is .4 pounds overweight. It’s his first professional fight, and he’s supposed to weigh 136 pounds. “I just lost three pounds over the last hour,” he says, stripping down to his black boxer briefs. “What do I have?” he asks Miles. “A half hour?” Miles looks at his watch. “I think you’ve got more than a half hour. Go do your stuff.” Ferraro takes a wrinkled silver body suit out of his gym bag. He wrestles it over his head, then puts his Temple Owls sweatshirt back on. He says he’s going to take a walk around the block to sweat the rest of his weight out. Terrel Hobbs, who rode up with Carter, is overweight by 10

pounds. His dark, hairless face is emotionless as he quietly insists he thought he was fighting a 145-pound match. Hobbs says he’ll give his opponent, Ferraro, $100 if he agrees to a match at 140. “Fuck that,” says Ferraro, shaking his head. “Nothing against you, but fuck that.” It’s what those in the MMA world call cutting the deal. “The negotiations all happen at the weigh-ins,” says Miles. “I’ve seen a fighter five pounds over, hand his opponent $100 per pound, when he was only taking something like $700 for the entire fight in the first place.” Fighters are paid based on their experience, name recognition and whether they’re professional or amateur. Promotions the size of Locked in the Cage often pay fighters anywhere from $300 to $5,000.

The line down Swanson Street in South Philly is a block deep. It’s going to take a while to get into the arena since the guys working the door are practicing TSA-style pat downs and searches. Once inside, you’d be hard-pressed to find an unhappy customer in the house. Except, maybe, Phil Ferraro. His fight against Hobbs was eventually canceled at the behest of his trainer. So he’s sitting amongst the fans with his younger brother and girlfriend. The night moves on without him. The first eight fights, amateur contests, consist of three two-minute rounds, or three three-minute rounds, based on the amateur fighters’ experience. Unlike their professional counterparts, amateurs have to wear leg pads and no fighter can punch another in the face if they’re on their knees. Most of tonight’s matches end in judge’s decision, though heavyweight Chris Ostoyic will pass out from exhaustion in the third round of his match, resulting in a Technical Knockout. After Matt Nice puts Vantassel to bed, Kyle Holdsworth, a local MMA blogger, insists he saw Vantassel’s eyes roll into the back of his head. Later, the Pennsylvania Athletic Commission suspends Vantassel for 45 days, as is required after a fighter gets knocked out. He’ll be allowed to train again after a state-regulated neurological exam. Backstage, Aaron Carter won’t let the Tavares name thing go. After an hour of brow beating, Evans takes out his phone, scrolls through his text messages and shows Carter one between himself and Carter’s coach, Rick McCoy. In the message, Evans explained the confusion. But McCoy apparently forgot to relay that back to Carter. “He was mad about the name thing and when I showed him the text he got even madder,” says Evans. “He felt like an asshole.” Carter loses to Tavares. Caught in an arm bar in the first round, he taps out. Afterward, coaches, announcer Adam DiCarlo and Evans head into the ring to congratulate the main event fighters and declare Tavares the winner. But when Evans goes to shake Carter’s hand, the fighter mouths off. Evans gets in his face and they’re pulled apart by others in the ring. Evans says these things happen. “You’re going to get into an argument with a guy. It’s going to happen,” he says. “[Carter] put his life into that fight, just like I put my life into the show.” “It’s just business,” Miles adds. As soon as the fight lets out, Evans and Miles begin preparing for Locked in the Cage’s next show: Thursday, Aug. 4, at the same venue. Two days later, the UFC will host the month’s largest MMA event in the world at the Wells Fargo Center, where tickets will go for hundreds of dollars. The two won’t admit they’re worried about putting on a show within three days of a UFC show, in the same city. Evans goes so far to say he’s happy about it. It shows there’s a huge interest in Philly. “I owe the UFC,” he says. “They built this whole thing up for me. They had balls to make it what it is today and they made it easier for me to get where I’m at.” n

erhaps you’ve seen striking photos of notable folks like Kim Kardashian, Larry King, Sara Bareilles and Jeremy Piven posing for the camera dressed in white with silver duct tape across their mouthS and “NOH8” painted on one cheek? It’s all part of an ongoing campaign devised by celebrity photographer Adam Bouska to protest California’s controversial Proposition 8 amendment banning same-sex marriage. But it’s not just celebs involved in the fight (and the campaign), of course. It’s people from all walks of life, and in that spirit Bouska’s been traveling around the country doing open NOH8 photo shoots. Today he’s in Philly for four hours at Penn’s LGBT Center, and if you’d like him to snap your photo (it’ll potentially appear online, and Bouska will mail you a print), drop on by and wear a plain white T-shirt. The shoot is first-come, first-served, and they’ll supply the duct tape and temporary NOH8 tattoo, which you can sport on your face for the rest of the day to show you’re down with the cause. m.a.g.

Watermelon Day

Big Audio Dynamite

What weighs as much as a baby, but tastes much better? No, not Taco Bell’s XXL Supreme Burrito. A watermelon. Today is National Watermelon Day, and the party is hoppin’ at City Tap House. Unlike when you were a wee middle-schooler, this celebration skips the face paint and arts and crafts. Instead, join the big kids, throw back some watermelonflavored lagers for $4 and mixed drinks for $5, and chow down on some of the pub’s backyard BBQ. For dessert, enter the melon-eating contest for a chance to win two tickets to see Kings of Leon on Aug. 12 at Susquehanna Bank Center. alExis sachdEv

Alas, the great Joe Strummer is still dead, so no Clash reunion for you. You’ll just have to settle for a reunion of Big Audio Dynamite. But actually, that’s not too bad of a consolation prize. BAD was formed in 1984 by singer-guitarist Mick Jones who, after getting the boot from the Clash, teamed up with four other dudes including singer/filmmaker Don Letts (who later made the killer Clash documentary Westway to the World). Together, they blended reggae and punk not entirely unlike the Clash, but added more hip-hop, dance and funk elements. After several albums and lineup changes BAD split in 1997, but the original lineup has gotten back together this year to outstanding reviews. Even ol’ Strummer would probably enjoy this. michaEl

Jolie Holland’s voice quivers with emotion that thickens noticeably on her tongue, harking back to the wavering croon of jazz/blues singer Bessie Smith. It’s an eerie, haunting sound like a night’s encroaching shroud of darkness, a burbling brook of unrequited ache. Though her earlier albums courted Americana with an ambling uphill gait, the last two have attempted to distance her from the style. They create a more electric, eclectic sound with the help of guitarists Marc Ribot and, on her latest, Pint of Blood, Grey Gersten. His prickly guitar complements the noir-ish vibe which—while still folky with very deliberate tempos—leaves Americana behind for something more uniquely her own. chris parKEr

Art Factory: Mixtape Release Party

a da m b o u s k a

P H I L A D E L P H I A W E E K LY August 3 - 9, 2011

Norris Square Neighborhood Project (NSNP), a Kensington-based nonprofit with a ton of cool youth programs and six boss culturally themed gardens, started Art Factory last year. The goal is to bring Philadelphia’s creative economy to local youth by teaching kids the artistic and administrative skills necessary for creating, marketing, exhibiting and selling their own work. For the latest project, the Art Factory team–comprised of students from several schools across the city, ages 14 to 18—were presented with one burning question: “How can music create a movement?” Not an easy one. But these young art-entrepreneurs jumped headfirst into it by quickly dividing into crews: media and production. The production crew recorded music and poetry made by younger NSNP students (ages 5 to 13), while the other crew designed flyers, posters and album cover art. The movement begins tonight at the mixtape release party, where you’ll dig the work of Philly’s youngest DIY arts team. Elliott sharp 1-6pm. Free. Old School Studios, 1417 N.

Or maybe it was its close proximity to South Jersey,” says the bio on the experimental band’s Facebook, which released their fourth full-length album Life Fantastic in May. Honus Honus, Pow Pow, Chang Wang and the rest of the gang continue to bring the bizarre with even more unsettling lyrics (the track “Haute Tropique” tells the story of a woman who disliked her children so much that she “hacked them up with an old machete and threw a party with dead daughter confetti”) and a variety of instruments—the usual guitars and drums along with squeaky toys, chopsticks, cap guns and ... stuffed frogs?

The Great Plaza will be teeming with music, food and vendors all afternoon and evening. Among the day’s entertainment: Joan Tigrass Rowley, leading purveyor of Trinidad soca (soul/ calypso); Congolese-American Afro-soul singer Rafiya; Go for Broke, the local blues band fronted by Yeadon councilwoman Penny MacDonald; and dance acts like the Ballet African Dance Troup from Guinea and the Universal Dance Ensemble. Based on years past, this’ll be one of the best looking, tasting and sounding of all the city’s annual cultural fests. m.a.g. 2pm. Free. Great Plaza at Penn’s Landing.

Anti-Art School Boas, booze and bare-breasted women in nothing but glittery pasties and fishnets … it may sound like a debauchery-filled night in sin city, but it’s actually a fine-art class: the anti-art class. Dr. Sketchy’s—a “rule-breaking cocktail of dames, drinking, and drawing”—is the eccentric antithesis of fine-art school, where there’s an absence of austere life-drawing teachers but an abundance of scantily clad Bettie Page doppelgangers. Dr. Sketchy allows artists of all skill levels to bring their sketchbooks and try their hand at drawing live, sexy cabaret models donning skimpy burlesque costumes. Founded in 2005 by artist Molly Crabapple, it’s a breakout sensation with more than 100 locations around the globe. Come to the Philly branch to sketch a bevy of sultry broads, including the featured subject, “Porcelain, Damsel in Undress,” an ivory-skinned, raven-haired knockout from North Carolina. And while honing your skills as a burlesque post-modern realist, enjoy some quality drinks, awesome music and engage in licentious and wacky contests. JEssiCa hErring 2:30pm. $15.

Mad Decent Philly Block Party


High Point Market The High Point Cafe at the historic Allens Lane Train Station (in the West Mt. Airy Section of Philadelphia) boasts its old Victorian charm with modern, tasty treats like handmade pastries and made-to-order crepes. This Sunday, celebrate local crafts and urban farmers with live music and a street fair that takes over outside the cafe. From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., you can peruse the vendors who all make their own items or grow their crops within Philadelphia city limits, and enjoy a concert while sipping on the “best espresso in town.” K.T.

Like the final scene of Fight Club, where the Pixies’ “Where Is My Mind” plays amidst imploding buildings and exploding consciousness, oOoOO’s synth-driven electronic music is slightly ominous and slightly glorious. With an undercurrent of post-apocalyptic dreams, it’s melodic and trance-y, emotion-driven in an abstract, despairing way. oOoOO, the nom de plume of San Francisco-based Chris Dexter Greenspan (who will be performing with a live band at Johnny Brenda’s), first released a CD-R in 2010, followed by an EP later that year. Part of the (very) burgeoning “witch house” movement, oOoOO play around with straightforward melodies and vocals, a cross between Tears for Fears, Massive Attack, and Lady Gaga, with a sleight-of-hand that renders them imaginative and bewitching—see, for example, the very creepy “Poker Face” remix.

Janet Jackson


Doesn’t it seem like Janet Jackson is out on tour now just to remind people that she’s still around? It’s been three years since she released an album of original music (yeah, we forgot about that album, too!), and it seems like it’s been forever since she had a hit that set the whole damn world ablaze. Ever since Beyoncé became the badass pop/R&B diva for the new millennium, people have forgotten all those years when Janet basically had pop music on lock. All those years of “Nasty” and “Rhythm Nation” and “That’s the Way Love Goes.” All

Bring your kids, bring your grandma, bring everything you got to this outdoor daytime (and FREE) block party show with house music gods Diplo, Das Racist, Luvstep and more. Mad Decent is Diplo’s very own record label, and the DJ/producer/curator/music maker is stopping in Philly where he has deep roots as part of a four city cross country tour to bring slammin’ beats to the masses in an all ages free venue. The YouTube videos abound of last year’s show at 12th and Spring Garden,




ack in April, thousands of men and women in Toronto took to the streets in protest after a representative for the Toronto Police made national headlines for saying “women should avoid dressing like sluts in order to not to be victimized.” Almost immediately, their demonstration spawned a movement of rallies held in cities across the globe. And now, it’s time for the women of Philadelphia to take a stand against this horrendous, yet prevalent notion that women who are promiscuous or dress provocatively are in some way asking to be raped, assaulted or sexually harassed. All are welcome to take part in the march, which will start at Kahn Park and go all the way to City Hall. Whether you choose to come dressed as a “slut” or in modest digs is up to you. Just come armed with posters and ready to be heard. niCoLE FinKbinEr

Led by singer-guitarist Eric Bachmann—who has spent the past decade performing under his own name and with Crooked Fingers— Archers of Loaf sprang from the fertile North Carolina indie-rock scene of the early ’90s, making a jagged-yet-cerebral racket similar to Superchunk and Pavement. Icky Mettle (1993) and All the Nation’s Airports (1996) were stone classics (the latter, distributed by Elektra, added bunches more melody but was far from a major-label sellout), but the Archers were even better live, known for their highly exuberant gigs. They split, nonacrimoniously, in 1998, but since they still like each other and every indie band reunites, they’ve gotten back together. This pleases us. M.a.g.

A preview of Philly’s upcoming LGBT events.

By Brian Goldthorpe

Bring the Love

Step aside, men—the ladies are on deck and ready to break out some serious wood! The City of Brotherly Love Softball League hosts the 2011 Amateur Sports Alliance of North America’s Softball World Series—basically the World Series for North American amateur lesbian softball teams. Don’t be misled by naive misconceptions—a lot of these girls can swing. The most highly skilled teams feature former Division I scholarship players. Even teams that are more recreational than competitive are fun to watch. In fact, the only thing these ladies do better than play softball is party—and there are plenty of social events during the tournament. Check out their website for complete competition and event schedules. Aug. 23-27. Various locations.

Boys of Summer

It’s almost time to break out your Speedo and shake what your mama gave you. Next week, the team at Philly Gay Calendar host their annual bacchanal, Boys of Summer. This is one nighttime event in which the fewer clothes you wear, the less eye rolls you get. At its core, Boys of Summer is a big-ass dance party where guests are encouraged to don their sexiest swimsuit, and not much else. You’re technically allowed to wear more than two Dixie cups and a Band-Aid (and many will), but if you’re not shirtless in a legit swimsuit once inside the club, the cover is $20 instead of $15. In addition to all the man candy in attendance, Philly Gay Calendar recruited 40 “lifeguards” to greet attendees and pack the dance floor as DJ Carl Michaels spins. Be there around midnight when Manila Luzon (from RuPaul’s Drag Race) lip-synchs her heart out to entertain the crowd. Fri., Aug. 12, 9pm. Voyeur Nightclub, 1221 St. James St.

You’ll never have a better reason to load up on caffeine or get a little tipsy than you will when Bar AIDS Philly returns for its second year. Twenty-five local coffee shops and bars have signed on to donate a percentage of the day’s proceeds to fund four of Philly’s most impactful HIV/AIDS service organizations: ActionAIDS, the AIDS Law Project, the Mazzoni Center and Philadelphia Fight. The event is the local iteration of a growing national series that started in Chicago in 2005. Bar AIDS Philly is but one fish in the ocean of LGBT fundraisers, but it’s important. Not only does HIV/AIDS remain a pervasive problem in Philly, but Bar AIDS also represents an innovative philanthropic model. Events like it make ‘making a difference’ accessible to just about everyone. Gone are the days when nonprofits had to locate special funds just to cover the exorbitant costs of throwing a formal black-tie fundraising

Getting Phreaky A new fest brings together the best of queer art and music. By Raymond Simon My Gay Banjo

E rw i n C a lu ya

Scanning the summer listings can be dispiriting. Is it really necessary to follow up last weekend’s Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival with a Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival at the end of August? Fortunately, there is a homegrown antidote to this pre-packaged drivel. The Phreak N’ Queer Music & Arts Festival—which runs Aug. 4-7—is a four-day smorgasbord of queer culture, offering cabaret, country, performance art and punk rock. A loosely knit collective of 12 local artists and organizers divided the festival into six different shows taking place at venues like Connie’s Ric Rac and the Tritone. Best of all, no ticket costs more than $10. The whole shebang kicks off with opening night fete, Glitterbomb, an event capacious enough to pit the clangor of Birth Noise against the baroque chamber-folk of “a stick and a stone.” It’s eclectic, inclusive and definitely not Top 40. That anti-commercialism is a conscious choice, according to organizer Megan Gibson, also known as DJ BeFree. “We’re trying to broaden ideas of what’s art and music and break away from mainstream club culture,” says Gibson. “This is a chance to see something or hear something you’ve never heard before.” A cursory glimpse of the lineup reveals plenty of novel acts and unexpected pairings. Friday evening’s Boudoir is billed as a queer speakeasy

and features both burlesque and an erotic art auction. Elsewhere, there will be spoken word, puppetry and performance art. Perhaps the most unique act is Rainbow Destroyer, comprised of duo Rainbeaux Bite and Brian Reignbow. The pair bills itself as zombie pop, although it’s unwilling to accept even selfimposed genre limitations. “Our sound is like ’80s dance music, plus contemporary Top 40 hip-hop, plus zombies,” they write via email. “Or if Britney Spears was a member of the Addams Family.” Saturday afternoon’s Gay Ole Opry is sure to melt the heart of even the coldest Nashville cat. In addition to two-stepping lessons, it features the country-tinged folk of local musician Joshua Marcus and the twang of Karen & the Sorrows. “I’m pretty sure that any hardcore country music people would cast some real doubt on our music being ‘country,’” says Julia Steele Allen, one half of Brooklyn’s My Gay Banjo, which appears on the bill. “There are no slide guitars; we do have some horse and truck lyrics, but plenty more mermaid and sailboat and man-on-man lyrics.” That kind of country music won’t get played on WXTU, but it’s perfect for Phreak N’ Queer. n Aug. 4-7.

You’re Quite The Dish

Chicken Italiano at Shank’s Original By Cristina Perachio

I’d imagine you’re delicious at any age! I’m nowhere near my expiration date. I’m a classic. Your kind is a staple at Philly sandwich shops, so what makes you different? We keep busy with daily deliveries of fresh produce. That’s the big difference between us and the other guys. Let’s get down to it: What are you made of? I start with your choice of a fresh seeded Sarcone’s French loaf or a plain Aversa French loaf. At Shank’s, cutlets are almost made to order—cooking no more than 20 at a time—and only warmed up on the grill if needed. My fans can tell the difference between fresh and frozen chicken. I’m topped with Andy Boy broccoli rabe plus Belgioso aged sharp provolone. What’s the most important technique in your construction? My premium Andy Boy rabe, which has more leaves and less buds, is worth the extra bucks, according to Shank’s GM Dan Fleischmann. Greens can be finicky, so mine are blanched then sauteed with olive oil and garlic to ensure the proper taste and texture finishing with salt, pepper and a dash of oil.

Ever get to hear what customers say about you as you’re scarfed down? “Wow.” Just a lot of echoing “wows” the whole way down to the stomach. Owner Phil McFillin says first-timers will be back the next day jonesing for another taste. Any advice to fans that just can’t stay away? Throw on your elastic banded pants and enjoy! n


the impression that each mouthful is draping the tongue in a warm, earthy blanket. There’s nothing unnecessarily self-conscious about the food here, and flavor is considered above all else. Even the more complicated platings share a common theme of technical proficiency and relative simplicity at their core. Branzino—a fish that’s grown so familiar it’s become fairly boring as a result—is sauteed in olive oil in a cast-iron skillet until the skin has taken on a vague resemblance to the smoky richness of bacon. Accompanying oil-poached peas, radishes and artichokes bravely add to this savor, as does the perfume of grilled lemon. It’s all pretty heady; rely on beer to cut through it, like the perfectly paired Einbecker Schwarzbier our waitress suggested. (This is a staff remarkably well-versed in the food and the brews.) Cucumber and avocado soup practically vibrate with brightness, a characteristic nicely accompanied by a garnish salad of vivid mint, diced cucumber and earthy lentil sprouts. Tuna tartare leans on line-caught albacore from Cape Hatteras, a gutsy move considering how slavishly so many other restaurants adhere to the cult of the yellow tail or big eye. Given the level at which Adams and his team are operating these days, I have a feeling he could have crafted the dish from Chicken of the Sea and it would’ve been a success.

The tartare, for example, is a symphony of bright fried green tomatoes, pasta salad and a beer from Brooklyn cilantro, an addition of lemon just south of puckering, and a brewer Sixpoint.

levels in the gallery and spitting them back out as a video assemblage. Stop by to chat with the artist about the nuts and bolts of the project and witness your conversation rolled into the free-form, improvised concert. 6-10pm. Grizzly Grizzly, 319 N. 11th St.

Present perfect: Bring a present to Vox, and Jessica Gath will wrap it up.

Don’t miss the art party—Vox Populi, Grizzly Grizzly and many other galleries close for the rest of August.

Sound/Stages II @ Vox Populi

We’re in the dog days of summer, and Vox, sensing the fatigue, is throwing us a party (thanks, guys!). Stacked with classic entertainment standbys such as video, music and performance, Sound/Stages II proves the age-old saying: You get out what you put in. Bring a present, and you’ll be rewarded with a custom wrap job, courtesy of Bostonbased artist Jessica Gath. Deliver a homemade video, and Christopher P. McManus will screen it as part of Summer Open Video Jam. Show up looking like a beach bum, and you’ll be right at home in Micah Danges’ “slacker paradise” of surf and skate videos with the Grateful Dead on the airwaves and a signature cocktail of the artists’ own design tucked into your hand. Participate in Lydia Grey’s performance, and you’ll be metaphorically connected to Nantucket, Mass., where artist Jim Jeffers will be performing the same piece, in synch 356 miles away—the closest most of us will ever get to those exorbitantly priced beach houses. 6-11pm. Vox Populi Gallery, 319 N. 11th St.

Simulsuck @ Grizzly Grizzly

On the eve before its August vacation, Grizzly Grizzly features Simulsuck, a performance by New Jersey-based artist Mike Richison. Incarnated here as a sculpture of found objects with musical inclinations, Simulsuck is an iteration of Richison’s ongoing project to rig recycled materials into technologically savvy orchestras. Featuring video and experimental sound generated via a computer program, the performance has a self-reflexive element, capturing noise

Though perhaps only by default, Tracy Thomason’s paintings provide a space for contemplation amidst Vox’s and Grizzly Grizzly’s raucous antics. Highlights, Low Fades, and Deep Cuts showcases recent sculptural paintings by the Brooklyn-based artist. While not time- and sound-based like standard performance art, her paintings comment on subtler and more internalized performances of gender. Dusted with eye shadow and dribbled with hair gel, Thomason’s objects offer traces of the ritualized performance of beauty. While grooming products skid across the canvas, esoteric materials such as ‘temperance’ and ‘clairvoyance’ are listed on her object labels, expanding the paintings into a more conceptual register. If you’ve ever thought that perhaps spray-tanner might be better aimed at a pale canvas than a pale epidermis, then Thomason is talking to you. 6-10pm. Through Aug. 28. Tiger Strikes Asteroid, 319A N. 11th St.

Memories Last a Lifetime @ Jolie Laide

Marking the completion of a real-life road trip and the beginning of their gallery performance, longtime collaborators Jacob Feige and William Earl Kofmehl III will drive a 1975 Triumph Spitfire across Pennsylvania and park it in the gallery. In its new role as an art object, the car will serve as the hot-blooded centerpiece for the artists’ ensuing performance. Adding an FM radio, papier mache birds, a basketball hoop and a painting, Feige and Kofmehl will use these props to enact a drama of isolation and renewal. Influenced by their personal history of art-making and friendship and pinned down by an ongoing fascination with Americana of the 1960s, ’70s, and ’80s, the performance involves Feige’s transformation into an unresponsive My Buddy doll (1985? Red overalls? Blue shoes? Anyone?), which Kofmehl attempts to revive. A separate show of paintings by Japeth Mennes and Jeffrey Matthews will also be on display. 6-8pm. Through Aug. 27. Jolie Laide, 224 N. Juniper St. n

Six Pack Six Serious (or Allegedly Serious) Films by Hacks By Matt Prigge

Radio Flyer (1992): You have Richard Donner

to thank—or, if you will, blame—for the trend toward painfully serious comic book movies. It was he who insisted Superman: The Movie treat the story of Jor-El as mythic pomp, boldly breaking from the campy stylings of, say, 1966’s Batman: The Movie. That’s all you have to thank him for. Safe to say, the man responsible for Ladyhawke, Timeline and the epically ill-considered Richard Pryor vehicle The Toy—and, for what it’s worth, The Omen, The Goonies and the first Lethal Weapon—should never, ever handle the subject of child abuse. But he did anyway.

Patch Adams (1998): To Tom Shadyac, “serious” connotes a scene where his rogue doctor hero is dissuaded from suicide by a butterfly. Still, not the film’s worst moment. Tigerland (2000): Not long after making

three of the worst films ever made in a row—A Time to Kill bookended by Batman atrocities— Joel Schumacher tried to woo burned critics by making a “gritty” war film. Employing Darren Aronofsky’s ace cinematographer Matthew Libatique early in his career was a wise idea— ditto casting Colin Farrell—but the good looks mask a hotbed of cliches that are anything but seriously serious.

The Quiet American (2002): The Aussie

We Are Marshall (2006): Who cares if the maniac behind Charlie’s Angels has a soft side? McG thought you did, so he made a rote inspirational sports weepie that’s neither accomplished enough to move audiences nor shitty enough to amuse chuckleheads. The Devil’s Double (2011):

Fitzgerald starts demanding weekly conferences with Terri—just a couple of pals shooting the breeze. What’s so beguiling about Jacobs’ movie, in addition to the offkilter comic rhythms and ramshackle sense of place, is the respect that it grants this doofus authority figure. Most teen flicks— especially exhibits from the troubledoutcast genre—would offer up Assistant Principal Fitzgerald as a figure of ridicule. (It’s easy to imagine Ellen Page mocking his high-five Ray Bans with obscure popculture references that sound like they’re penned by a 35-year-old screenwriter. It’s likewise not difficult to picture Wysocki’s Terri being played for a plus-sized Napoleon Dynamite.)

brass rail bar in atlantic city, nj // opening july 2011


There was a moment, and it wasn’t long ago, that Britney Spears seemed lost to us forever. She was shaving her head, flashing her bare cooter to the paparazzi, attacking the paparazzi with umbrellas, attacking car doors with umbrellas, being carted away in ambulances, marrying high school acquaintances, divorcing high school acquaintances, marrying backup dancers, having kids with backup dancers, divorcing backup dancers, using gas station restrooms without shoes, and, worst of all, hanging out with Paris Hilton. It got so bad her dad had to step in and actually be a dad. Then there was the performance at the MTV Video Music Awards in 2007. That’s the one, you’ll recall, where she stumbled around in her bra and panties in what appeared to be a heavily medicated daze, and a quick crowd shot revealed Rihanna staring on in horror and laughing uncontrollably. After that, silence. A couple years’ worth. Now, her career seems back on track, her Tabloid Throne snatched by people who actually make her look talented. She has an undeniably catchy dance hit on the radio and is once again selling out arenas, the cooter flashing and head shaving but a blip on the radar. A quick career recap looks like this: From Pop-Princess-in-waiting to devil spawn intent on sexualizing tweens, from tabloid curio to train wreck, to all is quiet on the water front to, now, bonafide Pop Icon. If you think that last bit a stretch, it’s

because you weren’t one of the more than 14,000 on hand at the Wells Fargo Center on Saturday night watching her straight rip the roof off the fucking place during the closing number, “Till the World Ends.” (Of course, the fireworks, elaborate stage set, blinding lights and incredibly athletic/acrobatic dancers helped.) To be sure, a good deal of Brit Brit’s Femme Fatale show invokes many of the same “Is she for real ?” moments of that widely lambasted VMA performance of ’07. She remains only mildly interested in choreography—half-committed, she is, to even the most basic of dance moves, her outstanding dancers make her look as though she’s performing under water— and, it’s no longer even denied that she lip-syncs through about 80 of the 85 minutes she’s on stage. But the capacity crowd at Wells Fargo didn’t mind. LEAVE BRITNEY ALONE! The gathered mass pulsed with an undeniable electricity from opening number “Hold It Against Me” on through to a medley of hits like “I’m A Slave 4 U” and “Baby One More Time” and the aforementioned barnburner, “Till the World Ends.” Around the arena, women in Ugg boots and men dressed like backup dancers sang every word. Britney and her fans remain thick as thieves, her influence on them incredibly strong. Her influence on the modern crop of pop ingenues, however, is limited. Katy Perry and Rihanna, both at Wells Fargo the last few weeks, are better performers. Taylor Swift, at Lincoln Financial this Saturday, ashewed wearing corsets and fishnets and singing slyly about sex. Gaga is from a planet that doesn’t exist in Britney’s orbit. Of the current class, only Ke$ha—who performs at Festival Pier on Aug. 17 and who co-wrote “Till the World Ends”—owes any bit of her act, look or vibe to Britney. But Britney is still the OG of this Pop Princess shit, and her fans are loyal and legion. She’s the only one of her class who had any staying power: Jessica Simpson, Mandy Moore and Christina Aguilera have faded to varying degrees, the latter canceled her last tour due to a lack of ticket sales. For her longevity, for her ability to make a swift U-turn at the gates of a lifetime of infamy, Britney deserves credit. The crowd at Wells Fargo was happy to give it. That she’s managed this considerable feat without ever learning to sing or dance might inspire you with contempt, awe, or a confusing mix of both. Either way, to paraphrase “Till the World Ends,” you’ve never felt like this before. n

West Is Best Danger Danger Gallery expands into retail on Baltimore Ave. By Emma Eisenberg Tristan Palazzolo at Danger Danger

“Tomorrow We’ll Remember, Tonight We’ll Celebrate,” reads a banner hanging above the small stage in Danger Danger Gallery’s first-floor performance space, a motto that seems to pay homage to Danger Danger’s steady forward motion. A DIY music venue operating out of a commercially zoned West Philly rowhome on Baltimore Avenue between 50th and 51st streets, Danger Danger Gallery is run by 28-yearold pals Tristan Palazzolo, Aaron Kanik (both of Pittsburgh) and Jeff Blinder of North Carolina. Before DD was legit, Palazzolo and bandmates from electroacoustic/roots band Grandchildren held consistently packed house shows from their nine-housemate home at 47th and Warrington as early as the summer of 2005. “The shows were just whatever we liked, somewhere

within the indie rock vein,” says Palazzolo. He recalls hosting then-underground artists like Coughs, Weasel Walter Quartet, USA is a Monster and Dan Deacon. “We were providing a needed service for the community. For as cool a vibe as [this neighborhood] has, in terms of the music I’m into, you really don’t have that many shows to go to. [We thought] it would be nice to have a venue around here that brought in really good subversive arts.” The friends started to contemplate opening their own venue, for real. The shows’ success, coupled with their neighbors’ anger at the constant noise and crowds, prompted them to look for a space that was zoned for commercial use without losing the house show vibe, and so they bought 5013 Baltimore Ave. in the summer of 2007. With Kanik as acting handyman, the guys soundproofed the first floor, built a makeshift stage from found materials, cleared a second show space in the basement so there could be two or more rapid-fire sets, and started putting on shows in February 2008. Though their new neighbors, largely other businesses, welcomed them, and shows like Tune Yards, Vivian Girls and Future Islands brought people to the venue, Palazzolo and his five-person volunteer staff weren’t turning a profit. Door money went to touring bands with DD taking a percentage to cover operating expenses. “We started thinking, man, it’d be so nice if we could actually sell something at these shows,” says Palazzolo. Enter the idea of a music store as part of the DD umbrella. When the vintage clothing store next door moved out in May of this year, the guys had one week to decide if they could rustle up enough capital and support to take on another major project. They took the plunge. The store, set to open Aug. 4, will sell music gear, records, clothing, local zines and guitar strings. It will also be home to a School of Rock run by Stinking Lizaveta frontman Yanni Papadopoulos that will instruct students in drums, guitar, keyboard and bass. “This neighborhood really needs a music store,” Palazzolo says, adding that, in addition to the music venue and store, DD plans on eventually playing host to art shows, film screenings and plays. “There are so many musicians here, but no place to go. And this is the perfect place to do it.” n

Critic's Pick

Kindred the Family Soul

Love Has No Recession (Shanachie Entertainment) Sounds Like: Deeply soulful R&B LP

from husband/wife Philly duo who got some great guests for their fourth. Free Association: A masterful blend of modern and throwback vibes (plus Snoop!). For Fans Of: The Womacks & Winans, Teddy Pendergrass, hometown soul.

Gardens & Villa

Gardens & Villa (Secretly Canadian) Sounds Like: Trippy chilled-out

synthpop from Santa Barbara, Calif., that’s not especially inventive but brilliantly executed with falsetto charm and throwback-flavored grooves. Free Association: The guilty trend is soaring vocals, no sax solos or beaches here. For Fans Of: Yeasayer/MGMT, Small Black x pagan Passion Pit, pills/psychedelics.

Richard Buckner

Our Blood (Merge) Sounds Like: The alt-country legend’s

tenth LP, his first in five years, is a beautifully sad and dark new batch of sparsely arranged, simply delivered tales of Americana. Free Association: This is no pick-meup, solely for dark (drunk/sad) and quiet times. For Fans Of: Townes Van Zandt x Josh Ritter, Woody Guthrie, mature melancholy.


Scattered, Smothered, Covered (Crossbill) Sounds Like: Fantastic weirdo psych-

pop solo debut from the Californian and former Rooney drummer who wanted to make something real by himself. Free Association: This couldn’t be further from his former band and that’s a blessing. For Fans Of: Animal Collective/Arms x Dirty Projectors, peacing out of shitty bands.


P H I L A D E L P H I A W E E K LY August 3 - 9, 2011

Jill Scott’s Summer Block Party  ou gotta hand it to hometown girl Jill Scott: She has always had a knack for taking her brothas and sistas back to Y simpler, better times. Her progressive-soul, vocal stylings have most likely made many listeners remember the good ol’ days of Minnie Riperton and Roberta Flack. Now, she embarks on a tour to promote her latest album, The Light of the Sun. But, of course, much like Scott’s music, the show will have more of a nostalgic, old-school feel. Known as “Jill Scott’s Summer Block Party,” the bill also includes oldsoul crooner Anthony Hamilton, 90’s quiet-storm radio mainstays Mint Condition, DJ Jazzy Jeff as the house DJ and Doug E. Fresh emceeing it all. Hell, the tour itself is a Budweiser Superfest presentation. Don’t tell us we’re the only ones who remember when this King of Beers-sponsored package tour would come around every summer back in the ’80s, promising such R&B acts as Kool & the Gang or Freddie Jackson or Evelyn “Champagne” King on its bill. Oh, those were the days. Thankfully, our girl Scott is bringing them back. (Craig D. Lindsey) Sat., Aug. 6, 7pm. With Anthony Hamilton, Mint Condition, DJ Jazzy Jeff + Doug E. Fresh. $65.75-$150.75. Susquehanna Bank Center, 1 Harbour Blvd., Camden, N.J. 856.365.1300.

The Rip Tide (Pompeii) Sounds Like: Zach Condon’s gypsy rock

band’s cooled it on the world music tip with their third and boosted the rep of the band as more than just Balkan indie rock. Free Association: “Nantes” used to be my MySpace profile song and it felt so right. For Fans Of: Calexico x Devotchka, Neutral Milk, brass and tambourines, polka.

Katy B

On A Mission (Columbia) Sounds Like: The debut from a powerful

voice in electrodance and funky house music in London, the BRIT School grad’s got an edge on Jessie J and Jamie Woon. Free Association: If this were the ’90s, she’d be mixed in with La Bouche and Black Box. For Fans Of: Mary J. x Hercules & Love Affair, Lilly Allen + Robyn, lil’ divas, clubbing.

By Dan Savage

Hey, everybody: two things … First: Last week, the GOP officially “denounced” me. Because the nation is at peace, Americans are going back to work, and the climate situation is completely under control—so, hey, why not go after the gay dude who writes that smutty sex column and gives Rick Santorum fits? Second: Last week, a Savage Love reader denounced me for failing to devote any recent column inches to my readers’ titillating anecdotes. As I hate disappointing a reader, I invited folks to send in their dirty/sexy vacation stories. Here’s the best of the bunch. I was 15 and on vacation in Cape Cod. Beaches never did anything for me, so I excused myself to go back to the hotel. On my way, I ran into another teenager, a girl. I struck up a conversation and was surprised to hear her answer in a British accent. Like myself, she was bored as hell. I invited her to my hotel room to get high. I make my move, which she goes along with. We’re both naked when I get an awful idea that would make any sane and sober girl run screaming for the hills. Being young and ripped, I vocalize it without considering the outcome: “What if you pretend to be Hermione Granger?” This was about the time of the fourth movie release, and I had a big crush on Emma Watson. As soon as the words left my lips, I knew that I wasn’t getting laid that day. But I got laid that day. The Wander Years

In the Provincetown dunes, my BF and I met another couple with the same first names as ours. They invited us to their campsite later that night. That’s when I learned four is the tangle threshold—four bodies can literally get so tangled you have to stop to undo yourselves. They had a little propane lamp, and as we were leaving, we could see their shadows from outside the tent—meaning we had just done a four-way shadow show for everyone in the campsite. Rob #2 I have just returned from vacation—or “holiday,” as we say in the UK—so here goes: My boyfriend and I both love hiking, so off we went to the Lake District, one of the prettiest walking regions in the country. The highest mountain in England, Scafell Pike, is there, so of course we had to climb it, just like pretty much every other tourist. What most of them don’t do is attempt the two-hour ridge traverse to reach the top of the second highest mountain in England, Scafell. We did. Whereas Scafell Pike had been so crowded there was no space for us to sit and have lunch, Scafell was deserted. I’ve always had a kink for outdoor sex, and it seems he has a fetish for mountain scenery, because we had possibly the best sex we’ve ever had on top of that mountain, enjoying spectacular views of the gorgeous English countryside. There is nothing like being fucked while staring out at the landscape that inspired the poetry of Wordsworth and Coleridge! Climber Loves Impulsive Fell Fucking Thanks for sharing, vacationers. Your regularly scheduled sex advice returns next week—now go Google “santorum,” everybody. n

I was 19. He was older and married. We were both in Utah for a folk-dancing event. He and his wife were nonmonogamous—in the open way, not in the (sometimes creepy) Mormon way. His wife wasn’t interested in playing with me, so he and I fucked in the back of his truck while she folk-danced at the folk festival I’d traveled to frickin’ Utah to attend. The next day, he drove me the hour back to their house in Salt Lake City so we could fuck some more. The next time we ran into each other was at yet another folk festival. We found an unused second-floor room in one of the buildings and used a piano to barricade the door. We left the window open for ventilation, and so that our vocalizations could rain down on the heads of the innocent Seattleites going about their folk festival business. Frickin’ Utah

About 10 years ago, when I was 15, my very lenient parents took me and two of my girlfriends to one of those all-inclusive resorts in Mexico. We partied and drank with some nice Mexican boys we met on the beach. On our final night, we all downed a bunch of flaming shots. Long story short: I ended up falling through a second-story window and cutting my head pretty badly, one of my girlfriends and I got into a drunken fistfight (I still have no idea about what), and then I lost my virginity on the beach to one of those nice Mexican boys. I woke up the next morning with a hangover, drunken shits and a pussy full of sand. The plane ride back was miserable … but, oh, what a memory. Good Times

P H I L A D E L P H I A W E E K LY August 3 - 9, 2011

Seven years ago, we went to a wedding. Upon arrival, my girlfriend and I found ourselves in the quaintest, daintiest, lace-doiliest B&B we’d ever seen. The wedding was a wonderful affair held in a historic building. By the time the two of us returned to the B&B, we were drunk, happy and horny. If I had been reading Savage Love back then, I would’ve known that we were breaking all the anal sex rules: It had been a first-date activity for us, we never took it slow and we never used lots of lube. It had always worked before. This time, however, was different. With her on all fours on the lace doily bedspread, I pulled back and noticed what could not be described as santorum (no lube, just fecal matter). We immediately headed for the shower with her exclaiming loudly how much she “hates when there’s shit!” We got clean. The sheets were a different story. I can’t remember whether we left them there or stole them, but I do remember the chilly farewell we received from the lady who ran the place. It occurred to me then just how nonsoundproof the walls of a 150-year-old clapboard house probably are. That Comes From There?

I’m a bi male, 25, and into bondage. Four years ago, I responded to the personal ad of a reasonably attractive French guy with an unreasonably amazing dungeon. I sent pictures and said I’d love to spend a weekend in his dungeon if I ever made it over. He offered to pay for a plane ticket if I would spend a week in his dungeon. After doing Christmas and NYE with the family, I headed to Paris for the last week of my winter break. Within 48 hours, I was begging him to let me out. He agreed to let me go if I still wanted out in two hours. But the bondage was “only real now” that I wanted out, he said in his sexy French accent, and he told me—while slowly stroking my dick—that I was beautiful and brave and strong and that I could get through the week. Which is what I did. On my last night in Paris, he took me to an expensive restaurant, ordered a bottle of champagne and toasted my bravery and strength. Best Week Ever
