EDITOR’S NOTE

Designing the Week By Stephen H. Segal // ssegal@philadelphiaweekly.com very year, I find myself looking at the calendar, wondering if it’s time yet for Design Philadelphia. The hundreds of creative professionals around the city who join in the festival’s jam-packed days full of exhibits, discussions and lectures—sharing their work as well as their perspectives on what it means to practice design in this city—span a ridiculous range of specialties. Architects. Fashion designers. Engineers. Bookmakers. Even mixologists get in on it, because yes, damn it, drinks need designing. Those who missed the Design Philadelphia event short-list in last week’s PW will find the entire five-day festival lineup online at designphiladelphia.org. A few highlights worth mentioning: the official festival kickoff party tonight (Wednesday) at Provenance

Architecturals, where a free and open street party from 7:30 to 10 p.m. includes live music, a sustainability exhibit and a fashion show. Then there’s the Hacker Masquerade DIY Mask Workshop, 7 p.m. Thursday at the Hacktory, teaching all Halloweeners how to wire up their costumes in maximum hightech awesometry. And our feature story, starting on page 12, samples some of the civic-minded projects on display Thursday night at Philly Works’ Qualities of Life in Philadelphia exhibit. Of course, PW’s very mission is one of interactive design: We try to give readers the information they need to design their own week in the city, every week. So this particular week is kind of meta for us. See you in the galleries. ■

LETTERS About a Boy

Kitchen Caper

In response to Jenine Pilla’s article about a documentary that gives voice to male victims of sexual abuse:

In response to Nicole Finkbiner’s cooking lesson with Chef Joe Cicala from Le Virtu:

Great article. It’s nice to see that men are starting to get the same acknowledgement and support of their sexual abuse as women do. More articles on the topic of childhood sexual abuse would be beneficial, not only for the countless victims it claims, but also in bringing about awareness to one of the most heinous crimes against children that knows no boundaries. SUSAN DEHART via philadelphiaweekly.com

Governor’s Orbit In response to Tara Murtha’s blog about state Rep. Tim Briggs’ call for an investigation into Gov. Corbett’s handling of the Sandusky case: I was a lot happier when Tom Corbett was a cadet at the Space Academy. Whatever possessed him that he would throw over a career in the Solar Guard for a sleazy life in politics? FGSGENEG via philadelphiaweekly.com

Great choice for a basic recipe that still appeals to cooks. It’s funny how people often cite cost as a reason they don’t cook, when the packaged versions usually cost exponentially more than homemade versions of good, simple things. Eggs and flour cost almost nothing compared to packaged fresh pasta! (Though I admit, if time in the kitchen is stressful or irritating to you rather than fun, I imagine that’s sort of a cost on its own.) PMCL via philadelphiaweekly.com

Whatevercare In response to Randy LoBasso’s interview with an intern who came to America from Scotland expressly to work on the Romney campaign: Wait, I am confused—this person thinks that Mitt Romney is the best choice for this country, yet she also thinks that the universal healthcare system in the U.K. is great, but it has no competition? That doesn’t make any sense—since when is no competition to a great system a bad thing? We need to be more like the NHS and less like Obamacare, which was actually once Romneycare!

PHILLYNOW [ SPORTS ]

Extra Innings

Our other baseball team doesn’t win games either— but it looks fantastic. cott Alberts plays right field or second base—anywhere he’s less likely to make a throw. He’d play first base if he could wear a baseball glove to catch his teammates’ throws. But on his Athletic Base Ball Club of Philadelphia—which is to say, playing under the 12-team Mid Atlantic Vintage Base Ball League’s rules from circa 1864, when “base ball” was two words—fielders play barehanded. The catcher receives the ball on a bounce, but moves closer with runners on base, and pitches arrive underhanded at topnotch Little League speed. It’s an offensive game, so .600 batting averages aren’t unthinkable. Yet as Philly’s vintage team wraps up its season, it’s apparent that the intervening century and a half of pro baseball in this city hasn’t changed much as far as outcomes go. Philadelphia can boast just eight final championships: two World Se-

ries titles from the Phillies in 1980 and 2008, five from Connie Mack’s Athletics between 1910 and 1930—and, back in 1871, the original Athletic BBC won the National Association of Professional Base Ball Players. The threeyear-old Athletic revival squad hasn’t won squat yet; in fact, it went 0-10 in Federal Conference games this season. “If you’re hoping for a bright light, you won’t find it here,” says Albert, the club president. “We’re upholding the finest traditions in Philadelphia sports.” So while the league plays its championship tournament this weekend, the Athletic team will be looking ahead to next year, hosting a recruiting tryout at 1 p.m. Sun., Oct. 14, at its field in Fairmount Park adjacent to the Please Touch Museum (that’s Memorial Hall to the retro-minded). Alberts is OK with that: Competition, he says, plays second fiddle to promoting the league and 19th-century

baseball history. The baseball itself is a “leisurely thing… We do all we can to win, but we also have a great time losing games, too.” Even Charlie Manuel couldn’t—or wouldn’t— mumble that. Alberts, a history major turned financial administrator at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, co-founded the Athletic BBC with brothers Ryan and Eric Berley of Franklin Fountain, an old-fashioned soda fountain parlor on Mar-

ket Street in Old City. Hailing from a family of antiques collectors, the Berleys have a “good eye” for antiquity; they were invaluable in selecting the team’s uniforms, authentic wool reproductions with pearl buttons and leather belts. “We’ve built this team on history nerds, so it’d be nice to get a few more ballplayers,” Alberts says. “We’re always recruiting, but we’re no beer league. We’re adding to the city’s social fabric.” (J.F. Pirro // Photo courtesy of the Athletic Base Ball Club of Philadelphia)

Philly residents. All recycling is transported to South Philly’s Blue Mountain Recycling Center, while compost is brought to community gardens and private landowners. As for cost, the rate for recycling is 21 cents a gallon, which some businesses say is more costeffective for them. Composting services cost $10 a month for weekly or bi-weekly pickups.

[Laughs] There are lots of different people out there. One time or another, you’re gonna have a confrontation with a driver but more often than not, we get people who stop to say, “Oh, that’s awesome, that’s cool.” And sometimes you’ll get a jerk that’ll yell at you or hassle you. But most people react positively.

The bicycle-based waste-haulers are at your service.

Was that your most difficult haul? Books are definitely the heaviest. At one point, just by sheer accident, we were at one of the Bike Philly events—we collect recycling at the end of them, too—[and] we left our barrels out for people who were there at night. [The barrels] have small holes at the bottom of them so stuff drains out … this one didn’t and it filled up halfway with water. We didn’t notice until we emptied it out but it took two of us just to put it on the trailer. That might have been one of the heaviest things.

What’s your response to critics who feel this is an inefficient way to haul trash? Being efficient isn’t our primary goal. We’re trying to make the city a more livable place. We want to increase the livability of downtown areas and bringing a garbage truck through the city during the day is just a nuisance to everyone. It pollutes the air. I’d say we are probably more efficient in certain circumstances than any of these large hauls, but that’s not our goal. We don’t strive to get the most done. We want to change people’s ideas about what’s important rather than being able to get the most recycling. We want to change [people’s] priorities and we try to encourage [our clients] to actually recycle less— and by that I don’t mean throw more stuff in the trash, but just produce less waste that needs to be picked up. We like to encourage people to be more conscious of their resources. Once we start doing that, we can start to see that it’s not as necessary to have giant garbage trucks going through downtown streets. (Annamarya Scaccia // Photo by Karrisa Olsen)

How do drivers or pedestrians usually respond to a Pedal Co-op haul?

For more information on Pedal Co-Op or to schedule services, visit pedalcoop.org.

What’s the weirdest item you’ve hauled? I hauled a mattress and box spring from South Philly over to West Philly over the Grays Ferry Bridge and the thing was just falling. At one point, one of our clients in a downtown office building were clearing out all these old tax books—the client takes up about eight floors of this large downtown office building—and we filled up all the barrels full of books and it was heavy as shit.

or a long time, I had been extremely concerned about the destruction of the natural world. Industrial society viewed the world not as an interconnected whole, but as a commodity to be developed and thrown away.” That’s Tim McCullough, executive director of the Pedal Cooperative, a West Phillybased nonprofit that provides bicycle-based waste-hauling services five days a week. When McCullough, 24, joined the co-op two and a half years ago as a hauler, he wanted to “get people to re-recognize the importance of

cycles in the natural world.” Now, as executive director, that’s the South Philly resident’s primary goal. Founded by John Macduffie Woodburn in 2007, Pedal Co-op promotes waste reduction and responsible disposal with just a few bicycles and human energy. On any given weekday, one or two riders from its four-member staff are on the streets collecting recycling from Center City, Fairmount and West Philly businesses—which can reach 8,000 gallons a month on average—or compost from West

PHILLYNOW [ ELECTION 2012: STALKING MITT ROMNEY ]

[ SOCIAL MEDIA ]

So, a Bunch of Republicans Walk into a West Philly Bar . . . n the low-lit basement of Cavanaugh’s in University City last week, there was one beer tap and several TVs turned to Fox News providing the night’s entertainment for about 30 Philadelphia Republicans: the debate between President Obama and Mitt Romney. Organized by ward leader Matt Wolfe, the Republican watch party was the place to be for the city’s unelected conservative activists and Romney camp officials. So, naturally, I had to go. My seat was in a booth across from a middle-aged guy named Mike McLaughlin. A South Philly paralegal, it became clear early on that he was probably the most staunch independent in the room. And not just because of both parties’ tendency to sell out to large cash dona-

McLaughlin’s fiancé, Katherine Heid, showed up about halfway though the debate and took a seat next to him. Her somewhat cheerful disposition was in great contrast to others in the basement who, at the very least, shook their heads disconcertingly every time Obama spoke. A Romney supporter, Heid later said she was satisfied with the way things went for her candidate, but not in an overly enthusiastic sort of way. “Romney was just fresher from a deliverance standpoint,” she said. “It didn’t look like [Obama] brought anything new to the table. I thought he’d have been more cutting-edge on content and delivery. Instead, I saw that with Romney.” (As we now know, the debate gave the Republican challenger a bump in the polls.) Wolfe, for his part, seemed weary about Romney’s victory immediately after the debate. He said it may just have seemed like a big win because we were in such a partisan atmosphere. I offered the perspective that Romney’s talking points during the debate, while simplistic and lacking detail, got one point across: Economically speaking, things are still shitty in the United States. “Exactly,” said Heid. “Why is Obama so cool and calm and collected when things are so shitty?” Later, when Fox offered some true partisan declarations on behalf of Romney— with the implication that he now had the election in the bag—McLaughlin said he wasn’t convinced. (He rarely is, he said, given the partisan noise coming from both Fox and NBC News.) “I wish we could switch to MSNBC right now. “It’d be— what’s the girl’s name?—Rachel Maddow. She’s probably on right now calling Romney the Rich Fat Cat.” (Actually, Maddow admitted that Romney crushed Obama— but McLaughlin’s point was taken.) “Republicans and Democrats are so alike,” he continued. “We’re in a city that’s so liberal that they think Democrats are the best thing since sliced bread, and Republicans are so evil. I think that’s a really naïve way to look at things.” He took out a wrinkled, coffee-stained copy of the Constitution. “If they could stick to this, we wouldn’t go too far off course.” (Randy LoBasso)

ccording to Twitter, last week’s debate was the most tweeted-about event in U.S. politics, with more than 10 million tweets in a span of just over two hours. The highest spike, 160,000, came when moderator Jim Lehrer replied, “Let’s not” to Mitt Romney’s attempted segue into a new topic. With a close eye and a finger on the refresh button, PW brings you some memorable tweets from the local and national peanut gallery. Sam Carchidi @BroadStBull OK, guys, get off the jobs issue. Except this one: How would you keep 30 #NHL teams employed?#lockout The Inquirer’s Flyers beat writer was pointing out that the NHL is still sitting on the bench watching the financial debate between owners and players. Matt Yglesias @mattyglesias If voucherizing Medicare for current old people is so terrible, why does Romney want to do it for me? “Again, that’s for future people, not for current retirees,” Romney said repeatedly while President Obama criticized the governor’s proposal to convert the current health plan for seniors into a private system, giving insurance providers a leg up on elders. Samantha Clarke @samanthakclarke Religious tolerance in the United States? Right... until they build a Mosque. #debates Romney mentioned the importance of religious freedom for Americans. Casting aspersions against everyday Muslims, of course, has been common since 9/11. James Pethokoukis @JimPethokoukis I think Obama forgot to tell America how he would end the Long Recession #whereshisplan Both candidates spewed numbers and spoke of the Dodd-Frank law as if the audience was an economics class at Wharton. Partisans from both sides seemed dissatisfied with the opposing party’s inability to clearly articulate plans, not just statistics. Adam Erace @adamerace A one-eyed woman with a twoheaded unicorn stopped me on the street today and asked: can you help me? Remember how McCain introduced Joe the Plumber in 2008 to humanize the middle class? This year, both candidates have mentioned so many random people in random states, it’s been transformed into a game—see debatedrinking.com. Kelly Jensen @catagator In all seriousness, Big Bird got more attention than women did in this debate. COAL got more attention than women did in this debate. Hm—what domestic topic has been in the news all year long? Oh yeah, women’s reproductive rights! Fired Big Bird @FiredBigBird Mitt Romney will end Burt and Ernie’s right to a civil union Didn’t take long for Romney to cut funding to PBS and fire Big Bird. Took even less time for unemployed Big Bird to create a Twitter account—and even less time for Twitter to suspend it. (By the way, in 2011, PBS funding accounted for .00014 percent of the federal budget.) NOTE: We’re on Twitter, too! @PhillyWeekly

tions. He says the partisan media often give just half the story. He immediately noted that though he’s friends with most of the people here tonight, he’s gone back and forth over the years with his political affiliation. “I’m a little more Democrat, now,” he said. Still, he’s supporting Romney. The debate began with the crowd cheering for the Republican candidate and booing Obama. “Retire!” yelled a woman behind me as Obama gave his opening statement. As we now know, Romney was declared the winner of the debate by, who else, the pundit class. We also know that the Republican repeated several falsehoods, changed his previous positions, accused Obama and his running mate of making myriad bad decisions, and was never called out by the president for any of it. But that didn’t matter. Romney mentioned the term “trickle down,” and there were hoots. He compared Obama to his sons— he claimed they were, like Obama, liars— and there were hollers. If the Cavanaugh’s crowd claimed any doubt concerning their candidate before the debate, it ended an hour into what Fox News personality Sean Hannity would later coin, “The Rocky Mountain Beatdown.”

Kristen Christian of Bank Transfer Day on making change. t was a little over a year ago that Los Angeles native and gallery owner Kristen Christian began using Twitter and Facebook to carry out ‘Bank Transfer Day,’ a one-day movement in which Americans across the U.S. were encouraged to withdraw their cash from large corporate banks and join a credit union. It worked. In the last quarter of 2011, credit unions added 398,000 customers. And reports show that, in this year alone, credit unions have gained a record number of customers nationwide. Christian is speaking in Harrisburg today and tomorrow at the Pennsylvania Credit Union Association’s Social Centric Conference regarding the impact social media can have on social and economic changes. PW caught up with Christian to figure out how her agenda has gone over the past year, and what’s left to be done. It’s been almost a year since Bank Transfer Day (Nov. 5). What changes have you seen in the American banking landscape since then? Considering I set out with the intention of reaching less than 500 people in my social circle, I was floored to read in American Banker recently that 6 million American consumers have changed the way they bank. Although many banks have since attempted to portray their policies as friendly to small businesses and families, I’ve yet to see any significant change in the policies themselves. Bank of America re-established the $5 monthly fee for debit-card access after November [2011], illustrating that a promise to terminate the policy just before Bank Transfer Day was little more than a PR stunt. Do you think the shift made people more aware of the abuses that were being conducted by large banks in the U.S., like extensive overdraft fees and customers’ money being invested in less-than-honorable places? Offering frustrated consumers a simple directive to follow and a support network of like-minded individuals allowed for an open dialogue of not only the obstacles we face, but solutions to repair the dam-

age that’s been done. It’s obvious that “too big to fail” has no place in a capitalist society where consumers have a duty to support businesses whose values echo their own. Financial cooperatives continue to echo my own values nearly a year later by offering their community of members an opportunity to take control of their own happiness and well-being. Your campaign last year was an example of the role social media can have on Americans’ spending habits. How do you see social media having a similar affect on policy and consumer change in the future? This social re-awakening has extended beyond banks or even businesses and straight into politics. While current candidates are speaking of cooperation, political science professors are teaching future generations of politicians and campaign advisors about the benefits of social media. If one person can influence change of this magnitude with a laptop and $10, it’s safe to say a candidate could run a successful campaign through private donations and an army of volunteers who believe in their cause. Some within Occupy Wall Street latched onto Bank Transfer Day. Would you say you and the group had similar goals during the height of the movement? While I believe that the Occupy movement had similar frustrations, our responses were strikingly different. I don’t see a

value in continuing to point out a problem instead of utilizing time and energy to find a solution. I believe that actions speak louder than words, and we will only see positive change if we take a nondisruptive stance. Yelling at frontline employees who are just as much victims as the bank’s customers is ineffective and unnecessary. While Occupy Oakland was speaking of the misdeeds of Wells Fargo and even vandalizing the banks’ properties, organizers decided to open an account there. You’re giving a session [Oct. 10] titled “Partnership for Prosperity.” What would you say is the main difference between the goals of this “new generation of consumers” and past ones? In order to understand the goals of the Millennial and Homeland (those born post-2005) generations, we need only look to the previous civic and adaptive generations. Empowered by our society at a young age, the GI Generation would go on to produce seven United States presidents, implement legislation to desegregate public schools and put a man on the moon. The Silent Generation produced virtually every civil-rights leader of the past century. We have big shoes to fill, but with the mentorship and experience of the generations that helped make us who we are, I’m confident the world will be a very different place when we’re done. n Visit phillynow.com to read the complete interview with Kristen Christian.

he five-day Design Philadelphia festival encompasses disciplines as disparate as fashion, vehicular engineering, children’s playtime and urban planning—all woven together by the common thread that the physical forms of things in the city can serve aesthetics as well as a practical function.

One specific initiative serves as an effective microcosm of the whole festival: Philly Works’ Qualities of Life in Philadelphia showcase, an exhibit and book collecting creative design projects that explore unexpected ways to make our urban experience more pleasant. On the following pages, we present an excerpt from Qualities of Life; see more at the book’s release party at the Philadelphia Art Alliance on Thurs., Oct. 11, and find 100 more exciting design events happening this week at designphiladelphia.org.

BLUEREDYELLOW Designers: Elissa Meyers and Mira Sophia Adornetto Collaborators: Andrew Dahlgren, ADMK; Robert Blackson, Tyler School of Art Gallery. blueredandyellow.wordpress.com Designers’ statement: The idea for BLUEREDYELLOW came out of research into the sustainable textile industry. This research indicated that the topic of coloring textiles was not satisfactorily covered. If we want to put organic food and clean water into our bodies ... wouldn’t we also want to put non-toxic clothing on our bodies? Not just organic fibers but organic colors as well. After all, how non-toxic is an organic fiber coated in a synthetic dye? Inspired by an internship at ASK Apparel (now Southern Hues), Elissa Meyers began to create BLUEREDYELLOW. While shaping the project she met Mira Sophia Adornetto, who was immediately smitten. With the help of a grant awarded by the Corzo Center for the Creative Economy, they launched BLUEREDYELLOW as a business. The business was based on the simple concept of employing sustainable methods to create natural products by using locally grown natural dye plants. Over the past three years the pair have experimented with growing and collecting different plant species in various parts of Philadelphia and testing simple, non-toxic mordants. As BLUEREDYELLOW they have made and sold products, taught a number of workshops and have been commissioned to do dye-work by individuals and several local businesses.

Just as Henry Ford’s invention of the mass-produced automobile made roadway development a necessity, an all-weather commuter bicycle will make the construction of a bikeway infrastructure a necessity as well. Bikes are affordable and mass produced but they are used mostly for recreation. My goal as a designer is to build bikes that will make commuting by bike contagious. • Enjoy the sanctuary of Philadelphia’s bike trails • Cycle in all weather conditions • Promotes a city-wide infrastructure of bikeways • Stress-free commuting alternative to the automobile

THE KIOSK In many countries, kiosks serve a grander purpose than selling tickets or dispensing information. They are micro-spaces that function individually and collectively to shape the surrounding physical, social and economic environment. The Kiosk is a mobile micro-environment that activates public space by engaging communities in interactive projects. Through its flexible programming and location, this modest structure provides a physical space for the emergence of social sculpture. On a given day, the Kiosk may be a puppet theater, a tiny dance hall, a barbershop, a site for fortunetelling and more. For its first iteration, the Kiosk has been transformed into a grandmother’s house. RENT-A-GRANDMA Rent-a-Grandma addresses Philadelphia residents’ needs for grandmotherly love and connection. It celebrates the wisdom and significance of senior women in our community and examines how familial ties and physical exchange between individuals of differing generations make Philly “work.” The exterior of the Kiosk remains unchanged, while the interior has been transformed with an amalgam of knick-knacks and sundry items you may find in a grandmother’s home. Featured alongside the structure are portraits and first-person stories of local Philadelphia grandmothers who are part of the senior writing project, The Best Day of My Life So Far. Viewers are encouraged to interact with the sculpture and reflect upon the roles of elder maternal figures in their lives. If you are a grandmother or grandchild who would like to share your experiences or memories, email us at my.awesome.grandma@gmail.com, where we can include your stories on our blog. If you visit the sculpture on the right day, you just may be able to meet and talk with Grandma in her house, hear her stories and ask advice. After “Rent-A-Grandma,” the Kiosk will undergo its next transformation. Subsequent editions of the Kiosk may include the Oracle Center, the Barbershop, the Soup Shack, the Dance Stand and more. The Design The Kiosk’s design is based on the archetypal structure that one might find in any part of the globe. It is simple, modular, and easily replicated and modified. To a certain extent, the design and build of this structure was informed by the procurement of local salvaged material, including wood from a local 18th century church and the former Schmidt’s Brewery (Manayunk Timber), salvaged doors and windows (ReStore), and used lauan board from a disassembled film set (The Resource Exchange).

Designers’ statement: Philly Fuel Co is a dynamic group of planners, artists, and designers promoting microalgae as a viable alternative energy source. Our research found that algae bio diesel is a clean and efficient resource that should be recognized as a major asset in the alternative energy landscape. Through a guerilla marketing campaign influenced by art, architecture, and propaganda strategies, Philly Fuel Co presents an exhibition revealing an impressive and untapped energy resource. The goal of this exhibition is to raise public awareness about the capabilities of algae derived fuel and its ability to reduce dependency on the current drivers of domestic fuel and foreign oil. Our vision unlocks the potential for a future beyond Philadelphia’s post-industrial landscape.

D E S I G N F O R A N E W P H I L A D E L P H I A STICKLETS: RECONNECTING URBAN CHILDREN WITH NATURE Designer: Christina Kazakia, creator of Stick-lets

2 0 p h i l a d e l p h i a w e e k l y I o c t o b e r 1 0 - 1 6 , 2 0 1 2 I p h i l a d e l p h i a w e e k l y. c o m

Collaborators: Rhode Island School of Design (RISD): Neal Overstrom, Director at the Edna W. Lawrence Nature Lab; Amy Leidtke, Adjunct Faculty in the Department of Industrial Design; Demetrios Staurinos, MLA graduate and landscape designer. Other schools and programs: The French American School, Providence, RI; After School Arts, Reservoir Elementary, Providence, RI; RISD Youth Art Camp, Tillinghast Farm, RI. stick-lets.com Designers’ statement: One by one we went around the table sharing our favorite childhood memories. Our memories all took place outdoors. We wondered if children today will have similar memories to share as adults. Will their childhood memories involve stories from nature involving unstructured activities, unsupervised play, and risk-taking? More importantly, who will preserve our natural resources in the future if children today are not provided the opportunities to love and appreciate our Earth? This question led to my Industrial Design thesis at the Rhode Island School of Design. How can I help reconnect urban children with nature through direct experiences with natural elements in their environment? Children today are becoming more and more disconnected from nature. Factors such as urbanization, virtual distractions, parental fears, and decreased outdoor education are leading to this separation. Research, field studies, and case studies helped me realize that the tool should be modular, transportable, and interactive. The product should also trigger direct experiences with nature, giving children the freedom to manipulate, construct, and design their own experiences. It should spark wonder and imaginative play. Stick-lets were designed to prompt children to discover nature that exists around them. By engaging nature through the use of this toy, children can become aware of the resourceful and renewable element, the stick. Not only will children feel a sense of accomplishment for scavenging sticks and constructing forts, but Stick-lets will provide opportunities for problemsolving, teamwork, imaginative play, and hands-on building. This toy will offer a valuable outdoor education. Stick-lets are now being manufactured and sold out of Philadelphia. They come in five shapes with holes of various sizes to accommodate urban branches. They are made of durable, flexible, and colorful silicone making them user-friendly for children. Because of their modular and transportable features, Stick-lets can be used in multiple settings, from backyards to public school properties. Let the fort building begin! “If we want children to flourish, to become truly empowered, then let us allow them to love the Earth before we ask them to save it.” —David Sobel

THE IMPROVISED BMOVIE DOUBLE FEATURE

For the next three weeks, Philly Improv Theater’s house team Asteroid! will use its spontaneous wits to celebrate all the low-budget fun of the sci-fi/ horror films from the Golden Age of Hollywood. Comprised of eight funny locals, several of whom also serve as instructors at PHIT, the always impressive troupe will take an audience suggestion each night and use it to perform not one, but two fast-paced, totally unscripted B-movies. Each show is guaranteed to be completely different, and audiences can look forward to an array of overly dramatic characters, absurd conspiracies, frequent plot twists, hilarious physical antics and maybe even a Vincent Price impersonation. The theater is BYOB, and if you spring an extra few bucks on “deluxe tickets,” you can also score yourself a free popcorn and soda. NICOLE FINKBINER 7pm. Through Oct. 26. $10-$20.

WAKA FLOCKA FLAME

What do you get when you mix testosterone, tatts, muscular beats and high-octane energy? The prototype for the contemporary rap artist, as personified by Waka Flocka Flame. This ain’t your grandmama’s hip-hop—that is, unless she likes her music loud and profane, with ballistic beats and rebelliousness as its driving force. Waka had the good fortune of being born into a family that understood the business of rap: His mother is Debra Mizay, who once managed Nikki Minaj and Gucci Mane. It was Mane who took the aspiring Waka under his wing, adding him to his Brick Squad crew, though Mane’s subsequent split with Mizay effectively ended that relationship. Like many rappers in the beginnings of their career, Waka shined on the mixtape circuit, then released his 2010 debut Flockaveli, featuring the unbridled anthem “Hard In Da Paint.” His second CD, Triple F Life: Friends, Fans and Family, is out now.

One of punk’s most vitriolic acts got an unexpected second act when John Lydon revived PiL in 2009, reportedly using money from his Country Life butter ads to finance the reunion. Early shows, like a now legendary set at N.Y.C.’s Terminal 5 in 2010, proved that the Sex Pistols offshoot had not lost its teeth. Lydon prowled the stage restlessly, orange coiff sticking straight up as of old, voice still quavering virulently, gestures as large as ever against the dub-scented menace of “poptunes” and “Annalisa.” This is PiL, the reconfigured band’s first album in 20 years, underscored the point with stylishly enraged, rhythmically unstoppable rants that were nearly as fierce, mad and decadent as in PiL’s 1980s heyday.

SLIDESHOW TOUR OF M. NIGHT SHYAMALAN’S HOUSE

Tonight, get a peek at M. Night Shyamalan’s gorgeous 125-acre estate, and see just how rich you can get making people think Bruce Willis was alive when he was dead the whole time. Ravenwood is the private residence of Shyamalan, nestled 20 miles west of Center City in bucolic Willistown, and costing the gothic-horror auteur a reported $65 million in 2004. The estate features six palatial bedrooms (each with a dark, terrible secret), an oak-paneled library, a stunning pool house and a gorgeous grove of orange trees. Architect Richard Cameron has agreed to give a rare presentation of his work and share his methods for constructing the building, all without leaving the city. Expect the slideshow to be just like one of Shyamalan’s movies: 30 minutes too long, but with an insane twist at the end. T.C.

When the world ends, whether in nuclear annihilation or rising seas, it’s safe to say that Mike Watt will be the last rocker standing.

He’s been sleeping in the van for longer than most punk rockers have been alive, first with the Minutemen, later with fIREHOSE and most recently with the Missingmen, who recreate his bizarrely imaginative

drummer, he is the band’s primary songwriter, and in 1997, the band took a temporary break when a double tragedy struck him: He lost his beloved daughter to a car accident, and soon after, his wife to cancer. But it seems nothing can break the bond of this perilous rock band. Soaring album reviews suggest that the Clockwork Angels tour will excite both newbies and the Rushiest of Rush fans. As it should.

FREE MAN OF COLOR

Featuring a cast of 20 led by Barrymore Awardwinning director Matt Pfeiffer, Free Man of Color transports audiences to early 19th-century New Orleans, where a black playboy named Jacques Cornet (Jahzeer Terrell) is busy enjoying the city’s boisterous nightlife. At least, that is, until America purchases the Louisiana Territory, and Cornet suddenly discovers that the color of his skin means he’s no longer a free man. Six years in the making, the play attempts to create a Restoration Comedy (a free-wheeling European style of theater that celebrates depraved behavior) in an American context. The play exposes a deplorable era in the history of a young nation so obsessed with empire building that it turns its back on the pursuit of the very same freedoms that Americans had fought and died for a mere 25 years earlier.

PLANETARIUM ON THE PARKWAY

BEFORE THE BRIDGE FESTIVAL

Jersey gets a bad rap, but for us, it’s our magical, uncharted neighbor to the East, brimming with undiscovered treasures and discount shopping. The quaint town of Collingswood, in particular, has a long tradition of catering to artists and musicians with imported-record shops and a bumpin’ indie-rock scene. The Before the Bridge festival was set up to attest to just that, urging native Jersey folk to stay local and Philly folk to suck it up and cross the bridge. Beloved Philly acts Illinois, Sweatheart and Prowler will mix seamlessly with some of Jersey’s finest up-and-comers. Bring some extra cash to wander the vendor area for some local art and wares and literature about some great causes designed to keep up the Jersey steam. ABIGAIL BRULEY 1-10pm. Haddon and Woodland avenues, Collingswood, N.J. beforethebridge.com

joking: The music film has existed in some form since the dawn of cinema. The Phonoscène, which synched a sound recording to a silent film, was created in 1902, and Warner Bros.’ Vitaphone music shorts began in 1926. In the late 1950s, the French company Cameca invented the Scopitone, a twist on the jukebox that played 16mm music films in bars and cafes. It was an idea pilfered from the Soundies of the 1940s, and the craze, which spread through Europe and America, lasted till the late 1960s. Secret Cinema, which has toured the world with their considerable Scopitone collection, will again unleash their wares, ranging from the American (Nancy Sinatra, Paul Anka), the French (Françoise Hardy, Johnny Hallday) to the obscure (Los Brutos, a quartet of Jerry Lewis impersonators).

Despite their many similarities, sports and theater don’t tend to mix much. Bucking that trend is promising Philadelphia playwright John Rosenberg’s Alp d’ Huez. Named for the legendary mountain that often proves to be the decisive climb in the Tour de France bike race, Rosenberg’s drama takes place in a Paris hotel room where a married man is forced to choose between his wife and a woman who shares his passion for cycling. Set in 2004 during Lance Armstrong’s attempt to win a record sixth consecutive Tour de France, the production by Hella Fresh Theater begins with a short film, which is available at thepapermilltheater.com. Inspired by a friend’s disastrous vacation, Rosenberg says he wrote Alp as a way to “explore strange passions and the willingness to abandon family and friends because of a shared connection.” And if you can’t ride your bike to the company’s Kensington theater, Hella Fresh offers theatergoers in Center City rides to and from the show for a mere $10.

Wow. It’s been almost 40 years since Rush, the fabled Canadian rock trio, released their first album called, well, Rush. And the band is still at it 18 studio albums later. Clockwork Angels is their latest masterpiece, born with a story so enormous that drummer Neil Peart published a book alongside its release, telling the tale of a boy following his dreams. Although Peart isn’t Rush’s original

A SLOW AIR

Inis Nua Theatre Company, a local troupe that presents plays by the top contemporary playwrights from the British Isles, returns for a new season of risky, audacious theater with talented director Tom Reing’s production of A Slow Air, a fragile, eloquent two-character work about a brother and sister who haven’t spoken in 14 years. The monologue structure reinforces our sense of the siblings’ estrangement, and as the two characters describe their ordinary (but surprisingly engrossing) lives, there

appears to be little hope for a family reunion. One of the most deceptively commanding playwrights working today, David Harrower quietly shows us the powerful and numerous forces that divide not only families, but nations as well.

TINARIWEN

Tinariwen recorded their Grammy-winning Tassili against a backdrop of sandstone turrets, dunes and eerie tessellated caves in Southern Algeria, their home ground in northern Mali too war-wracked for safe sessions. That’s a bit of an irony, since Tinariwen formed in the crucible of Tuareg rebellions, thrown together in armies that fought across sub-Saharan Africa and, at one point, for Colonel Moammar Qaddafi himself. Though the band’s members have weathered famine, drought, war and forced migration, their sound has a fantastically calm center. Tinariwen’s hand-drummed rhythms sway and slap like caravan camels, its guitars trace trance-blues slides and bends through haze, and its singers call out to one another as if over vast desert distances, campfire to campfire.

THE OATMEAL

The Oatmeal claims it firmly believes in truth, beauty and chest hair. We believe it is a hilarious, smart and delightfully weird web comic. To celebrate the release of his latest collection, How to Tell if Your Cat is Plotting to Kill You, creator/illustrator/coder Matthew Inman is bringing his weird brand of fun to Philly. The newest volume includes various illustrated guides to understanding felines, such as “6 ways to tell if your cat thinks it’s a mountain lion,” and a pull-out poster featuring a murderous cat. If you’re not already familiar with the Oatmeal, check out Inman’s previous best-seller 5 Very Good Reasons to Punch a Dolphin in the Mouth (And Other Useful Guides) or browse other hilarious titles on his website. Be warned, though: It’s more addictive than the cutest kitty videos. ASHLEY KOLE 6pm. Free. University of Pennsylvania Bookstore, 3601 Walnut St. 215.898.7595. upenn.edu

For one night, the Franklin Institute will join forces with Rafael Lozano-Hemmer, the internationally renowned artist behind the city’s current worldpremiere public-art instillation Open Air, to present a once-in-a-lifetime interactive presentation. Since launching on Sept. 20, Open Air has used the voices of locals via the project’s website and iPhone app to manipulate 24 powerful robotic searchlights positioned along the Ben Franklin Parkway. For this event, Lozano-Hemmer will be temporarily switching the interface, giving complete control over to Derrick Pitts, the Franklin Institute’s chief astronomer. Using an iPad, Pitts will direct the lights and pinpoint constellations in the night sky, something that typically isn’t possible with outdoor astronomy events. While avid stargazers are welcome to bring their own telescopes, Philadelphia’s Rittenhouse Astronomical Society will have two massive telescopes on hand should you want a better view. N.F.

INFORMATION STATEMENT ON ACCESS TO THE ELECTION PROCESS FOR PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES IN THE CITY OF PHILADELPHIA In accordance with Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 and the Voter Accessibility for the Elderly and Handicapped Act of 1984, the City of Philadelphia does not discriminate against people with disabilities in providing access to its election process. According to these federal laws, the City of Philadelphia is required to ensure that its election process as a whole is accessible to people with disabilities in all elections. This means that polling places shall be accessible to people with disabilities to the extent that accessible locations are available within each election district. The City Commissioners designate and list polling place accessibility in varying degrees with separate codes for the building and parking. Polling places that fully meet all federal and state criteria are designated with an “F” for fully accessible building and an “H” for handicapped van parking. If a polling place location does not fully meet these federal and state criteria but provides relative accessibility with minor assistance in entry then that location will be designated with a “B” for substantial accessibility. If a fully accessible location that meets all federal and state criteria (designated as “FH”), or one that has been modified to provide accessibility, is not available for a polling place in your election Division, voting accessibility will be provided through the use of an Alternative Ballot in accordance with directives issued by the Secretary of the Commonwealth. If you are a registered voter who is disabled or age 65 or older and who is not assigned to a polling place that has been designated as “FH”, you are qualified to vote using an Alternative Ballot. ONLY THE FOLLOWING WARD AND DIVISION POLLING PLACES HAVE BEEN DESIGNATED AS “FH” OR FULLY ACCESSIBLE. IF YOU ARE A REGISTERED VOTER IN ANY ELECTION DISTRICT IN PHILADELPHIA, EXCEPT FOR THOSE LISTED BELOW, AND YOU ARE DISABLED OR AGE 65 OR OLDER YOU ARE ELIGIBLE TO VOTE FROM HOME USING AN ALTERNATIVE BALLOT OR AT CITY HALL ROOM 142 ON ELECTION DAY USING AN EMERGENCY ALTERNATIVE BALLOT:

An Alternative Ballot may be obtained for any election, upon your advance request on an Alternative Ballot Application. In Philadelphia an application for an Alternative Ballot can be made on the regular Absentee Ballot Application by checking the box for “Handicapped or 65 years or older and who is assigned to an inaccessible polling place”. The applications may be obtained at the County Board of Elections in Room 142, City Hall or by contacting (215) 686-3469 VOICE, or TTY/TDD through the AT&T Relay System. TDD users may utilize this service by calling 1-800-654-5984 and telling the communications assistant they want to speak to the Pennsylvania Bureau of Elections at (717) 787-5280. Alternative Ballot Applications by mail must be submitted to the County Board of Elections not later than 7 days before the election. Alternative Ballots must be returned to the County Board of Elections no later than the close of the polls, at 8:00 P.M. on Election Day. Additionally, registered electors with disabilities may apply for an Emergency Alternative Ballot Application and cast their ballot in person at the County Board of Elections, in Room 142, City Hall, up to the close of the polls on Election Day. In addition, the City shall provide registration materials in large print at each registration facility, and voting instructions in large print at each polling place. Should you have any questions about your rights, or the City’s obligations under these laws, or if you need assistance in determining if your polling place fully meets federal and state criteria, please contact the Accessibility Compliance Office, or the County Board of Elections.

DECLARACIÓN DE INFORMACIÓN SOBRE EL ACCESO AL PROCESO DE ELECCIONES PARA LAS PERSONAS CON DISCAPACIDADES EN LA CIUDAD DE FILADELFIA De acuerdo con el Título II de la Ley de Norteamericanos con Discapacidades de 1990 y la Ley de Accesibilidad de Votante para los Ancianos y los Discapacitados de 1984, la Ciudad de Filadelfia no discrimina a la gente con discapacidades al suministrar acceso para el proceso de elecciones. Según estas leyes federales, se requiere que la Ciudad de Filadelfia asegure que su proceso de elecciones en conjunto sea accesible a la gente con discapacidades en todas las elecciones. Esto significa que los sitios de votación serán accesibles a los discapacitados de tal manera que haya locaciones accesibles disponibles dentro de cada distrito electoral. Los City Commissioners (Comisionados de la Ciudad) designan y enumeran la accesibilidad de los lugares de votación en grados variables. Los sitios de votación que cumplen en su totalidad con los criterios federales y estatales son designados con una “F” que indica que es un edificio totalmente accesible, y con una “H” que indica que es un parqueadero para discapacitados. Si un logar de votación no cumple en su totalidad con estos criterios federales y estatales, pero provee accesibilidad relativa con una pequeña ayuda en la entrada, entonces ese logar será designado con una “B” que indica que tiene una accesibilidad sustancial. Si no hay disponible un lugar totalmente accesible, que cumpla con todos los criterios federales y estatales (designados como “FH”), como sitio de votación en su División de elección, la accesibilidad para votar será proporcionada mediante el uso de una Boleta Alterna de acuerdo con las directrices expedidas por el Secretary of the Commonwealth (Secretario del Estado). Si usted es un votante registrado, que es discapacitado o tiene 65 años de edad o más, y no se le ha asignado un lugar de votación que haya sido designado como “FH”, entonces cumple con los requisitos para votar mediante una Boleta Alterna. SÓLO LOS CENTROS DE VOTACIÓN DE LOS DISTRITOS Y LAS DIVISIONES ELECTORALES QUE SE MENCIONAN A CONTINUACIÓN SE HAN DESIGNADO COMO “FH” O TOTALMENTE ACCESIBLES. SI USTED ES UN VOTANTE REGISTRADO EN CUALQUIER DISTRITO ELECTORAL DE PHILADELPHIA, SALVO EN AQUELLOS QUE SE ENUMERAN A CONTINUACIÓN, Y ES DISCAPACITADO O MAYOR DE 65 AÑOS, CUMPLE CON LOS REQUISITOS PARA VOTAR DESDE SU HOGAR MEDIANTE UNA BOLETA ALTERNATIVA O EN LA SALA 142 DEL AYUNTAMIENTO EL DÍA DE LA ELECCIÓN MEDIANTE UNA BOLETA ALTERNATIVA DE EMERGENCIA:

Petite Charms

While La Petite Dauphine works out its kitchen, enjoy the espresso, pastries and ambience. By Brian Freedman // bfreedman@philadelphiaweekly.com a Petite Dauphine is a great space, the black tendrils and swirls of the ceiling a perfect counterpoint to the bamboo floor, the warm white walls and wainscoting, the vases with their purple flowers marching along the wall. There’s a quaint sophistication to the café aesthetics, including the selection of pastries from Au Fournil—the almond croissant is particularly nice—as well as the newspapers and magazines up front, a smattering of local publications as well as the likes of Le Monde Diplomatique. It’s the sort of spot that, I think, will one day be a solid neighborhood eat-in and take-out business; the kind of place where you can stop by for a nice bite to eat either there or at your desk at the office. The smoked salmon, a lovely light meal, is a good indication of what Dauphine is striving for. Fleshy, dense and pleasantly smoky, it’s also presented well,

with shredded egg yolks and whites, the tangle of red onion, and flaky-crusted brioche triangles. That said, owner David Smith tells us that he’s still essentially in coffee-shop mode; though the place has been open nearly three months, the search continues for a permanent full-time chef. I have high hopes that Dauphine will find its footing as its evolution continues; in the meanwhile, I’d suggest skipping the pricier menu items for now. Croque monsieur, for instance, is the sort of preparation that you’d assume this wonderfully francophilic spot would do flawlessly. And while the sweet ham, its edges charred and addictive, proved to be a nice foil for the brie—not traditional, but a clever twist nonetheless—the center of the pain perdu encasing it all arrived cool, undermining the comfort-food homeyness the dish should impart.

LA PETITE DAUPHINE 2029 Walnut St. 267.324.5244 lapetitedauphine.com Cuisine: French cafe. Hours: Mon.-Sat., 8am–6pm; Sun., 8am–4pm. Price Range: $2–$18. Atmosphere: Charming, sophisticated, French-but-not-forced. Food: Solid ideas that need a chef to execute them better. Service: Pleasant and competent.

For now, I’d simply take advantage of La Petite Dauphine’s strong suits and stop by for an excellent pastry, a well-made latte or cappuccino, and perhaps a plate of that smoked salmon. ■

The menu at Blue Belly takes us on a barbecue flavor odyssey through Korea, St. Louis, Jamaica, Mexico and more. For all that, it’s a simple and affordable lineup, broken up into sandwiches, smoked meats and sides: It’s all so easy to navigate and makes grabbing a quick sandwich on the way home from work very simple. Standing at the pinnacle of the sandwich menu is the Korean beef sandwich; the meat is tender, juicy and full of sweet and savory flavor. Delightfully sour kimchi mixes with sweet pear ginger vinaigrette, threatening to reinvent your concept of what’s fundamental to the palate. It’s all topped with crispy shallots and sprinkled with sesame seeds that add an extra pop of nutty flavor. (Cristina Perachio)

Rittenhouse Tavern

251 S. 18th St. 215.732.2412. rittenhousetavern.com Cuisine: Fresh and seasonal American fare. With an attentive staff and a private garden for outdoor seating, the Tavern makes for a lovely night out in the city. The prosciuttowrapped figs with Gorgonzola and honey offer a salty crunch on the outside and a burst of sweetness from the fig. Another notable dish is the five day-boat sea scallops—their

tops seared to perfection, bathing in an amaranth truffle butter sauce with fresh and tender chanterelles and turnips. Don’t ignore the summery desserts like the cherry-grahamcracker tarte, lovingly paired with crunchy pistachio ice-cream. Cherry and sea-salted fudge squares come complimentary with the check. (C.P.)

Spencer ETA Burger 227 N. 34th St. 215.222.1022. spenceretaburger.com Cuisine: Burgers.

a friendly staff and a relaxed atmosphere; add that the price per dish doesn’t exceed $6.25, and suddenly this place is your new fave Philly spot. Subtle flavors and attentively cooked meat send Vietnam House to the forefront: An unfussy dish of broken rice with BBQ chicken arrives with the classic garnishes of sliced tomatoes and cucumbers, but the chicken is perfectly charred on the outside while maintaining a moist center. Wash the meal down with an iced coffee (with condensed milk). (B.F.)

It’s all about the toppings. Take, for instance, the Greek burger: The Vesuvius of sweet roasted bell peppers, the tangle of spinach capped with tomato and grilled eggplant, the funky black olive tapenade and tangy feta, the onion-chickpea-cucumber slaw, the roasted garlic aioli—all of it lent the veggie patty I opted for an excitement it’s rarely lavished with. The beef burgers are absolutely fine, mind you—plenty juicy and seasoned with a deft hand—but the toppings at Spencer ETA Burger tend to be so generously applied, and occasionally so baroque in their constituent combination of components, they simply steal the proverbial show.

Eating here is a two-faced experience, both forward-looking and retro, a throwback to a time when comfort trumped detail, but of-the-moment in its occasional willingness to leap-frog convention and play in the sandbox of more modern flavor combinations. How else to explain the Frosted Flake-crusted and fried PB and J? It’s with the simpler constructs that ASB is at its most charming. Grilled cheese embodied the holy trinity of sensations for this Norman Rockwell construct. The bread had been perfectly crisped up in copious amounts of butter, the cheese tucked inside stretched from the teeth with each bite as if performing for a commercial, and the tomatoes, even out of season, brought enough acid to balance out the fattiness. Quintessential beer food. More than anything, though, what matters most here is how well the food works with the real centerpiece, the real reason most people will likely end up stopping by repeatedly: to enjoy a few beers with a bite to eat. (B.F.)

2218 Frankford Ave. 215.634.5666. thepickledheron.com Cuisine: Contemporary American by way of France. The Pickled Heron turns out a seared foie gras that ranks among my favorites in town, expertly cooked to buttery tenderness without a hint of over-searing and served over a golden raisin and black pepper jam that is both a sweet foil and a thoughtful complement to the faintly metallic character of the foie. Caramelized brioche underneath it all adds crunch and heft. Seared scallops are tender clouds drifting on sunchoke puree and a scattering of toothsome fava beans, the entire dish brightened by a judicious squeeze of lemon. (Leah Blewett)

Vedge

1221 Locust St. 215.320.7500 Cuisine: Ambitious, creative vegan. 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. 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. Roasted golden beats are layered on pumpernickel with smoked tofu, avocado, capers and a cucumber dill sauce to perfectly embody the satisfying

20 S. 18th St. 215.988.0898. nomnomramen.com Cuisine type: Ramen, ramen, ramen. Ramen has the potential to be one of the more deeply comforting and affordable meals around and Nom Nom Ramen, on 18th Street just off of Market, is doing a nice job of promoting it. Shio is arguably the standard-bearer here. It’s built on the base of a tonkotsu broth, amped up with salt and white soy sauce, that benefits from having been simmered with pork bone. Shoyu is more savory still—the addition of soy sauce highlights the darker flavors of the broth, the meatiness of it. Karai miso sizzles with a pleasant, tingling heat. The broth itself, a creamy miso tonkotsu, glows sunset-toned, and the sweet-earthy black garlic sauce atop the pork belly provides an excellent counterpart. All of these are wonderfully successful meals-in-a-bowl; if you work in the area, it’s a great under-$10 lunchtime option. Or dinner. Or night-out snack. (B.F.)

Russet

1521 Spruce St. 215.546.1521. russetphilly.com Cuisine: Italian and French-inspired menu focused around local ingredients. Russet, a B.Y.O.B housed in a converted rowhome in Rittenhouse, crafts a daily menu around a few choice local ingredients. Hand-rolled garganelli pasta comes with spinach, a sunny-side-up egg and crispy, thick-cut guanciale—unsmoked Italian bacon made from pig jowl or cheek. After breaking the egg yolk to coat the pasta, the resulting taste is that of a deconstructed carbonara. Stinging nettles make an appearance on the American red snapper, alongside Jerusalem artichokes and a tomato fondue that adds a sweet acidity to each bite. (C.P.)

>> Tapestry

At Tapestry, you really can’t go wrong with a brew and almost anything fried. Order a Ballast Point Piper Down Scottish-style ale from California and tear into a plate of fried chicken, a salty, dizzyingly crispy, thick-crusted plateful that’s among the better versions in the city right now. The vegetarian chili is also a standout: the pinto, cannellini, red kidney and black beans are all relatively toothsome despite the fact that they’re canned, and the sweetness of paprika and cooked-down tomatoes lend it contrast. The burger, though nothing unique, nonetheless acquitted itself admirably; the 80-20 chuck is ground fresh at Rivera’s and Nydick’s Agiato in Manayunk. Pizzas are generally a solid go-to as well with their leopard-spotted and yeasty crusts. With a few tweaks here and there, Tapestry will reach its potential and do the very pleasant space justice. In the meantime, stop by, check out the new brews and tear into that fried chicken. (B.F.)

M Kee

Executive Chef George Sabatino plays with sourness, sweetness and perfume with an alchemist’s sense of fine-tuning. Beets are punched up with coriander and bay leaf; cauliflower makes a remarkable partner for raisins and turmeric. If you’re in the mood for a de facto pickle back to wash down your whiskey, this is the place to do it, especially considering Stateside’s generous whiskey offerings. It’s with these more comforting dishes that Stateside is at its best. Pork liver terrine is a chunky, funky wonder, the gaminess of the organ both unabashed and primal in the best sense. Bone marrow and truffle sausage is the kind of dish that would give any self-respecting doctor nightmares. Follow the same logic as the rest of the meal: Small portions and big flavors are the focal points. Don’t fight the temptation. Stateside seems custommade for eating a little too much, drinking a little too much, and regretting none of it. (B.F.)

1002 Race St. 215.238.8883 Cuisine: Wide-ranging Chinese. M Kee is the kind of place you root for: The service couldn’t be nicer or more accommodating, and the restaurant itself, with its cheery orange accents and uniforms, is welcoming. The highlights are probably what you’d expect—they’re hanging right in the window. Excellently named “roast pig” is just that: Tender rectangles of remarkably “porky” pork, each resting beneath a layer of cracker-crisp skin that’s a beautifully deep shade of mahogany. Order too much of this and bring it home. It’ll make an amazing next-day snack. (B.F.)

he Arden Theatre Company has long explored stories that address the typical challenges facing many American families, and at first, it appears that the suburban Goodman family in Brian Yorkey’s and Tom Kitt’s provocative 2010 Pulitzer Prize-winning musical Next to Normal is as recognizable as the figures in a Norman Rockwell painting. There’s Diana (played by a bold yet tempered Kristine Fraelich); her husband Dan (the sensitive James Barry) and their teenage daughter Natalie (Rachel Camp). The couple also have a son named Gabe (Robert Hager, in a dominating performance). “They’re the perfect loving family/And I love them every day of the week,” Diana sings in “Just Another Day,” Next to Normal’s opening number. “So my son’s a little shit, my husband’s boring/And my daughter, though a genius, is a freak/Still I help them love each other/Father mother sister brother/Cheek to cheek.” This moment of domestic bliss is interrupted when she begins to make the family’s lunch, which isn’t unusual, except she’s making the sandwiches on the floor. Dan’s and Natalie’s reactions suggest they’ve seen this kind of bizarre behavior before. Diana is bipolar, and as Natalie rushes off to school, Dan makes plans for his wife to visit a new doctor. When Normal debuted on Broadway, many critics hailed it as a groundbreaking work. It’s not, at least not in terms of its construction. The contemporary score—which draws on pop, rock and Broadway-style ballads—is heavily influenced by composer Stephen Sondheim, and the astute book is conventionally episodic and character-driven. From an artistic standpoint, Normal is not nearly as innovative as Caroline, or Change, a musical that truly was revelatory in its design. So, what does Normal do to earn all the critical accolades? The answer lies in its approach to mental illness. In an artistic medium in which no topic is taboo, Kitt and Yorkey dare to challenge people’s long-held beliefs about a subject that’s still discussed in hushed tones. It would be easy for a production to focus solely on Diana and her disease, but director Terrence J. Nolen is equally interested in the impact her behavior has

on the entire family. Given little attention at home, Natalie seeks refuge in her love for the piano, which she practices at school with the sort of regularity other teens reserve for drug use. It is there that she meets Henry (the marvelous Michael Doherty), who, despite his fondness for pot, is by far the production’s most welladjusted character. As Natalie’s and Henry’s relationship grows into a surprisingly healthy romance, Diana is prodded by Dan to begin a treatment combining talk therapy and medication with a prominent psychopharmacologist (Arden veteran Brian Hissong). Described by Dan as a “rock star” in the field, he shares two important characteristics with Diane’s husband: Both are well-meaning, and both are clueless about Diane’s condition. Dan’s ignorance is forgivable; the doctor’s is alarming. Diana’s treatment sessions are among the most chilling scenes in Normal, made all the more frightening by Jorge Cousineau’s effective video design, which emphasizes the hubris of modern medicine. As Diana begins her treatment, pills of all shapes and colors dance on the giant screen in a sort of a pharmacological tango. Despite the array of meds she’s prescribed, Diana shows little improvement, and at her husband’s and doctor’s urging, she undergoes the barbaric treatment known as electroshock therapy. As scenes from One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest flash, we’re reminded of how little

understood mental illnesses were back in the day. The ECT treatment leaves Diana little more than a walking corpse. “I don’t feel like myself. I don’t feel anything,” she tells the doctor, whose only response is to make a note that the “patient is stable.” It is this callous notation that strikes at the heart of Kitt’s and Yorkey’s musical tragedy. In a nation where mental disorders are still stigmatized and a subject of shame, Diana has a condition in which the cure is potentially worse than the disease’s symptoms. Diana’s left with almost no memory or identity, and she loses something else too, and it’s fair to say that it is both priceless and irreplaceable. Next to Normal gives voice to the millions of Americans who live with an ailment that, for some, is as much a blessing as a curse. The show’s most memorable song, “I Miss the Mountains,” sums up the dilemma faced by those whose lives have been profoundly impacted by this mysterious and misunderstood disorder: “I miss the highs and lows/All the climbing, all the falling/All the while the wild wind blows/Stinging you with snow and soaking you with rain/I miss the mountains, I miss the pain/Everything is balanced here and on an even keel/Everything is perfect/Nothing’s real.” ■ Through Nov. 4. $36-$48.

ore often than not, we tend to think about video games in terms of classic vs. contemporary—Tetris vs. Halo, Atari vs. Wii. What many people may not realize is that there’s actually two separate factions of the gaming world: mainstream and indie. Due to increased access to basic gamemaking software, anyone with a computer and a few hours to kill can create their own video game these days—no prior computer programing experience necessary. As a result, there are indie developers all over the globe churning out fun and innovative games and distributing them online for free. This month, Little Berlin is giving locals a proper introduction to the alt-gaming world, having transformed its Kensington gallery space into a mini arcade. Punk Arcade features seven DIY games that, while unique as far as their individual visual aesthetics, complexity, genres and styles of play, were all made in a short amount of time by an individual or small group without traditional programming know-how. “We looked for games that were fun to play, quick to learn and that loosely fit our definition of punk games,” explains local installation artist and Little Berlin curatorial member Lee Tusman, who conceived the exhibit with the help of his friend, fellow artist and DIY gaming virtuoso Sarah Brin. Punk Arcade games have been uploaded onto old computers, either donated by the University of the Arts or hoarded by Tusman. The archaic monitors are propped up inside cabinets constructed entirely out of cardboard with spray-painted details, and instead of controllers, players use old keyboards. “This is like a normal installation for me,” laughs Tusman, who spent several 12-hour days bringing the wonderfully makeshift show to life. Although hesitant to pick a favorite, the 30-year-old Philly native notes that the Punk Arcade game he had the hardest time prying himself away from was the least punk of them all: Huggin’ Bear by Lindsay Grace, in which players must place well-timed hugs on a stuffed teddy bear—with a special controller inside its belly—in order to leap over various obstacles. The better the hug, the higher you leap. (It’s not as easy as it sounds.) Even cuter: Sissy’s Magical PonyCorn Adventure, a choose-your-own-adventure-style game created by 5-year-old Cassie Creighton from Toronto, with the help of her father. In addition to providing the voice of the main character, all of the visuals are her actual

crayon drawings. There is only one legitimate arcade console in the exhibit that Tusman found at a local thrift store and had rewired for the politically motivated, two-player game Keep Me Occupied, created by Anna Anthropy during Occupy Oakland’s move-in day. Rather than competing against one another, the players have to work together to ascend through a building, and after 60 seconds, each leave a ghost of themselves behind to occupy the last gate touched, holding it open for future players. “There’s a really sweet story about how the arcade was built and got pushed through the streets of Oakland by all kinds of helpful strangers,” Brin says. Should anyone suddenly feel inspired to make a game of their own, Tusman will be leading a free workshop on Sat., Oct. 20. open to artists and gaming enthusiasts alike. All you need to bring is a laptop and a few clever ideas. It just so happens that most of the games featured in the exhibit were created during similar indie game jams across the country. While this is the first manifestation of Punk Arcade, next month it’ll become a traveling exhibit when Brin, 26, recreates it in her hometown of L.A. with GlitchLab, a multipurpose arts organization dedicated to showcasing artist-made and experimental games, for which she serves as creative director. “I think these new game-making tools and their ubiquity are worth noting and celebrating as a movement,” she says. “It’s easy for that stuff to get lost in the jumble of the Internet.” ■ Through Oct. 27. Arcade Days: Saturdays, noon-5pm. Workshop: Sat., Oct. 20, 2-4pm. Free. Little Berlin, 2430 Coral St. littleberlin.org

SCREEN

SIX PACK Six Films Featuring Major Actors Doing Crazy Shit By Matt Prigge // mprigge@philadelphiaweekly.com The Devils (1971): In the mid-‘60s, Hollywood’s puritanical Production Code, enforced since 1934, finally eroded and died. It wasn’t long before buttons were really pushed. Soon, Ken Russell, who had staged a nude wrestling scene in 1969’s Women in Love, decided to oneup himself: His mega-controversial adaptation of Aldous Huxley’s nonfiction The Devils of Loudun featured nun orgies and a cut sequence dubbed “The Rape of Christ.” It also boasted lovely Vanessa Redgrave masturbating with a crucifix—and later with a bone, in another cut scene. Caligula (1980): A year after Malcolm McDowell proved a charming, lovable lead in the thriller Time After Time, that big budget porn he’d filmed years before finally got released. Penthouse’s lavish Roman biopic features McDowell gamely fucking his sister, disemboweling soldiers and fisting newlyweds. There’s also room made for Helen Mirren, Peter O’Toole and a visibly confused John Gielgud, though the hardcore stuff is left to the pros.

S.O.B. (1981): Who wants to see Julie Andrews’ tits? Directed by Blake Edwards, her then-husband. The Brown Bunny (2004): Unsimulated sex has long been employed to shock mainstream audiences, but it’s typically unknowns—or semi-knowns, like Kerry Fox in Intimacy—engaging in the actual acts. Chloë Sevigny was an Oscar nominee bound for Big Love when she blew Vincent Gallo on-screen, a move that got her shitcanned by the William Morris Agency. But as she said, she’d been intimate with Gallo before. Hounddog (2007): Even before its disastrous Sundance debut, this indie was dubbed “the Dakota Fanning rape movie,” as per a scene where the then-13-year-old’s character was violated. Actually, the act happened off-screen, but don’t tell that to the likes of Bill O’Reilly, who helped the film snowball into an undeserved conversation piece. The Paperboy (2012): Precious’ Lee Daniels was a producer (of Monster’s Ball and The Woodsman) before he turned to directing, and it’s presumably his well-honed talent as a golden-tongued huckster that persuaded the stars of The Paperboy to do what they did in The Paperboy. As you’ve heard, Nicole Kidman cheerfully pees on Zac Efron. Less well-known is her mock-fellating John Cusack from across the room while he furtively jerks off or a scene in which Matthew McConaughey is hogtied for some good old BSDM. n

Middle of Nowhere Needs Room to Breathe The incandescent Emayatzy Corinealdi shines amid its thoughtful understatement. Still, something’s missing. By Sean Burns // sburns@philadelphiaweekly.com class act and understated to a fault, writer-director Ava DuVernay’s sophomore effort is one of those movies that’s more admirable for what it doesn’t do than what it does. DuVernay won Best Director at this past year’s Sundance Film Festival, I guess with good reason. Her Middle of Nowhere is tactful, formally controlled and occasionally devastating. It’s an expert piece of craftsmanship that’s missing something elusive. The incandescent Emayatzy Corinealdi stars as Ruby, first glimpsed giving up med school so she can take phone calls from her husband Derek (Omari Hardwick), a nonviolent offender working off an eight-year prison stretch for reasons that are annoyingly left unsaid until far too late in the picture. Ruby takes the bus two hours each way to visit her husband every week at the penitentiary. The first clues that we’re seeing something special come from the friendships she forges on these endless rides. There’s an easy rapport amongst these semi-widows, and we are not used to watching movies about people in such circumstances. Indeed, Ruby’s in a fix. She’s a registered nurse working nights to try and pay off some costly legal bills. Her sister and nephew hang around sometimes, mostly acting as protection from Ruby’s angry, been-there-done-that mom (Lorraine Toussaint). Ma’s a tough cookie, often bitterly wondering aloud how her kids ended up the way they did, mostly blaming herself, but still leaving plenty more to go around. Not much happens in Middle of Nowhere. DuVernay drops you into these characters’ lives and allows plenty of time for you to sort things out for yourself. Dream-like flashbacks of old domestic bliss cut nastily to present-day loneliness, with Ruby putting everything on hold for the sake of her man, measuring time in years instead of minutes. DuVernay’s approach is reserved, to say the least. Shooting in widescreen on digital video, cinematographer Bradford Young hangs back, quietly observing behavior from frames constricted within doorways or other obstructions, always

emphasizing the movie’s cramped closequarters. There’s no escape from this sentence, and the picture dwells for eons on Corinealdi’s effortlessly expressive face. I should love this movie, but something about it kept me at arm’s length. DuVernay’s even-keeled temperament is a little too cool for the room. She aestheticizes the sadness with so much strict, formal intelligence that the movie lacks visceral impact. Never is this felt more than at the halfway mark, when all of our and Ruby’s illusions are shattered with a brusque couple lines of dialogue. Middle of Nowhere eschews melodrama, so it takes a minute or two for the shocking revelation to sink in. Immediately following, the abrupt switch to slowmotion and misty-eyed music cues will make you wish DuVernay held it all together for just a little bit longer. Those asphyxiating compositions gradually expand as Ruby befriends a bus driver, well-played by David Oyelowo. Their halting courtship, complete with subtitled matinees on Hollywood’s Westside, hints at a larger world that’s probably beyond this picture’s tunnel vision. The frame doesn’t just open up when Oyelowo is onscreen; the whole movie seems to finally breathe a bit. DuVernay backs off and lets us enjoy their romantic chemistry. At least, for a little while. I enjoyed Middle of Nowhere mostly for what it doesn’t do next: There’s no

dramatic confrontation or arbitrary movie-ending bloodshed. This is a picture about people just trying to find a way to muddle through with their broken lives, and it’s impossible not to root for Ruby as she slowly spreads her wings. It’s great to see portrayals of AfricanAmerican life absent Hollywood’s usual buffoonery—or Tyler Perry in a dress— but Middle of Nowhere’s stringent humorlessness becomes a bit wearying. It’s an exceedingly well-made movie, so much so that it’s almost lifeless at times. DuVernay could probably leave the camera in a close-up on Corinealdi’s face for a couple of hours and come out with a watchable movie. But this one is sorely lacking a subplot, which becomes a drag over 100 or so minutes. There’s just not enough going on beyond the handful of speaking roles. Thankfully, Middle of Nowhere does almost everything else right. It’s thoughtfully crafted and shines a light on people too often marginalized by Hollywood movies. But it made me wish somebody would open a window or something, and let the world in. ■

How to Survive a Plague

The Other Dream Team

Seven Psychopaths

Reviewed by Matt Prigge

Reviewed by Sean Burns

The tale of Lithuania’s 1992 Olympic basketball team is not just an inspirational sports saga. To accurately tell the tale, as Mark Markevicius’ doc The Other Dream Team does, requires jumping back all the way to WWII, when the Soviet Union invaded and annexed the relatively puny Baltic state. Boredom and a need to temper encroaching insanity drove them to become b-ball-mad. Natives whimsically erected their own regulation courts, thus ensuring that the next generation would become, to the surprise of the rest of the world, basketball mega-athletes. Markevicius, a producer (of Drake Doremus’ Douchebag and Like Crazy) turned nonfiction director, evenly splits between easy emotion and dark comedy. It’s the latter that really sticks. Eventually, the USSR’s basketball teams become largely Lithuanian; four-fifths of the starting lineup for the 1988 Seoul team—which schooled the American team that included Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson and Charles Barkley—was from the captive country. Hoopers Arvydas Sabonis and Sarunas Marciulionis would wind up in the States, the former to the NBA Hall of Fame, but the USSR was not so quick to let them go. The KGB initially thwarted their transatlantic trips, keeping them “home” and subjecting them to curious motivational tactics, like a trip to Lenin’s tomb. Inevitably, The Other Dream Team has its share of shooting-fish-in-a-barrel fish-outof-water yuks, with the Lithuanian exports marveling over the lack of bread lines, how people have money and how easily one can obtain a car (when they’re highly paid athletes, that is). What a country! It’s here, and elsewhere, that The Other Dream Team becomes less a simple paean to the triumph of the human spirit and more an admission of life’s complexity and messiness—how imprisoning and oppressing a people can lead them to an unusual and deeply satisfying form of revenge, meted out in the most unexpected way. It’s one thing when the newly independent Lithuanian 1992 Olympic team beats their former Soviet overlords; it’s another for it to be a tight, and therefore great, game. ■

Opening with a shot of the Hollywood sign that ends in a splattery mess, playwright Martin McDonagh’s second feature film dearly wants to be a poison pen letter to all the bullshit swaggering stereotypes that put food on his table. What’s amazing is that it almost succeeds. McDonagh’s 2008 debut In Bruges is already attaining the luster of a classic. Seven Psychopaths seeks to bite the hand that feeds, casting Colin Farrell as a drunken loser screenwriter—naturally named Martin—who falls in with a couple of low-rent dog-nappers (Sam Rockwell and Christopher Walken) making their living hustling pooches from the tar pits, eventually returning the canines to grateful owners and cashing sizeable reward checks. Problems arise when they swipe a shih tzu from an emotionally imbalanced crime lord played by Woody Harrelson, and then all the wrong people get murdered. It’s a silly, stupid series of contrivances over a dumb little dog, which I think is probably McDonagh’s point. Seven Psychopaths aims to mock a culture of potty-mouthed gangster wannabes who have seen too many movies, calling out the viewer for engaging in such adolescent empowerment fantasies, while at the same time working pretty well as an example of the genre. A neat trick. It’s also a fit of apocalyptic self-loathing, as Farrell’s dopey screenwriter over-romanticizes psychopaths until he meets a handful of them himself. A mid-film fever dream montage narrated by Rockwell suggests what might happen if Charlie Kaufman wrote a Sam Peckinpah movie, indicting the audience for eating up such dangerous, juvenile fantasies. Moment to moment, Seven Psychopaths had me in tears of laughter, mostly because McDonagh writes blistering arias of profanity, and he’s got a who’s-who here of phenomenal character actors to deliver them. (My new favorite Irish joke is that all these murderers are always sanctimoniously scolding Farrell because he drinks too much.) I’m not sure it all hangs together in the end, but McDonagh’s grasping at something interesting. And I laughed so hard, I made a spectacle of myself. ■

The key to understanding filmmaker Lee Daniels isn’t Precious, his grating interpretation of a prestige picture. It’s Shadowboxer, his underseen 2005 directorial debut, which turns a simple neo-noir into a garish fever dream that offers the blinkered viewer Stephen Dorff ’s condom-ed member, Joseph Gordon-Levitt dating Mo’Nique, a visibly inebriated Macy Gray and Helen Mirren getting euthanasia-fucked by Cuba Gooding Jr. Few, alas, knew that when Daniels unleashed onto Cannes The Paperboy, it would deservedly morph from all-star prospective awards-gobbler to social media joke magnet, with the webiverse exploding at the thought of Nicole Kidman enthusiastically micturating upon Zac Efron. Those who’ve seen Shadowboxer shouldn’t be surprised to learn that isn’t even the film’s craziest event. That honor again involves Kidman, and a scene in which her severely dolled-up white-trash sexpot engages in a kind of sex act with death row inmate John Cusack from across a room. The whole thing is topped off with a camera pan down to show Cusack’s freshly stained jeans. It’s hard thinking of a sleazier scene involving major actors–you’d have to go back to Malcolm McDowell fisting a newlywed in Caligula–and the story around it, for whatever it’s worth, is at least as batshit. Kidman has been pen pals with convicted murderer Cusack and, despite his being in-all-ways repugnant racist swamp trash, she thinks he’s innocent. Journo Matthew McConaughey returns to his Florida home to help free Cusack, while his brother, bored college flunkee Efron, occasionally stops lounging in his tighty-whities to fall for Kidman. Though based on a novel—from National Book Award-winner Pete Dexter, who coadapted with Daniels—The Paperboy feels made up as it goes along and is so overstuffed, it barely has time to address McConaughey’s yen for hogtied BDSM. Daniels’ filmmaking is unique: A bit with Kidman approaching a car has more dissolves than Brakhage’s Dog Star Man, while one rape scene is studded with inexplicable cutaways to dead animals. The Paperboy isn’t faux-trash, nor is it real trash. As cooked up by Daniels, it’s something original. Take that as a recommendation, if you’d like. ■

The AIDS saga How to Survive a Plague arrives on the heels of at least two other significant documentaries on the same subject, all three released 30 years after the disease was first clinically observed in the U.S. United in Anger, about the activist group ACT UP, has played the festival circuit, while Vito, profiling ACT UP member and gay historian Vito Russo, aired on HBO. There’s a lot of overlap between the three, and in a lot of ways, Plague and Anger are the same film, with slight differences: Anger is shorter, narrowly confined to one subject (ACT UP) and did a better job than Plague at bottling up the anger of an era fueled by desperate, righteous protests. Plague is the one with the better title and the splashy distribution deal, but while its focus is more broad and its tone less hectic, that doesn’t make for a less gutting view. Starting with “year six,” David France’s epic account follows a community fighting to be heard amongst vast governmental indifference and often unbridled homophobia. As many people were fighting for their lives— and many of them don’t make it to the film’s end—their only logical tactic was to get louder and more rambunctious. That, and to take science into their own hands. As the FDA was slow to test and release often ineffectual and prohibitively-priced drugs, members of ACT UP—and later, splinter group TAG–had to teach themselves science so that when they gave doctors a hard time, they knew what they were talking about. A strong subject does not automatically make for a strong documentary, and what really makes Plague dynamic—as well as Untied in Anger and Vito—is this fact: The rise of consumer video cameras in the early ‘80s coincided with the proliferation of AIDS. Like suburban families, AIDS activists were suddenly able to film their every move, and the presence of actual footage makes traditional talking heads happily superfluous. Because it’s been exhaustively filmed, an era is summoned up not orally but cinematically. But this is no mere history lesson. Those looking for topicality can look to its blistering footage and see a blueprint on how any oppressed minority can get shit changed. ■

Robert Glasper Experiment at World Cafe Live The Houston-born, Brooklyn-based pianist Robert Glasper and his Experiment comes to the World Cafe Live hot on the heels of his new CD, Black Radio Recovered: The Remix EP, a six-track project featuring reworked and unreleased tracks from his masterpiece, Black Radio. “I wanted this album to be an album that people don’t know what the fuck to call it,” Glasper told PW by phone from Chicago. “I wanted to tap into every part of black music.” Glasper’s economic and elegant pianism is supported by a dynamic mix of skilled MCs, notable singers and acclaimed producers. 9th Wonder and Phonte add a dancing shade of gray on the jazz standard “Afro Blue,” featuring Erykah Badu. Pete Rock adds Now Rule nuances to the title track, laced with Yasiin Bey’s insurgent invocations, contrasted by Georgia Anne Muldrow’s eerie take on “The Consequences of Jealousy” with Meshell Ndegeocello. Questlove, the Roots and Solange Knowles brew up a not-so-quiet storm on “Twice,” and Glasper and Jewels deliver a pulsating, piano-centric take on David Bowie’s “Letter to Hermione” with Bilal. “Each producer I choose is melodically inclined,” says Glasper. “They know the right chords to get from a song.” The last track, “Dillalude #2,” is a moving piece dedicated to the late uber-producer Dilla, with whom Glasper first worked in 1999. “(Dilla) was the only producer that I know who changed the way musicians play their instruments,” he says. “The way I lay my chords, the way I play a chord over a beat, the feel of it, I get from Dilla. That’s why I do tributes to him.” Glasper’s blend of jazz and hip-hop is parallel to the way bebop musicians in the ‘40s added their own melodies and rhythms to the pop standards of the day. So don’t except some Du Bois-style, double-consciousness angst from him regarding his musical identity. “I’m a hiphop musician, and I’m a jazz musician,” Glasper declares. “Jazz musicians remix every time they play, and hip-hop is the daughter of jazz. Without jazz, there probably wouldn’t be no hip-hop, which is why it’s so easy to blend them. But at the same time, they are two different disciplines. You have to study both of them.” (Eugene Holley) Sat., Oct. 13, 8pm. $20-$28. World Cafe Live, 3025 Walnut St. 215.222.1400. worldcafelive.com

he opening track on Pour une ame souveraine (“For a Sovereign Soul”), Meshell Ndegeocello’s 10th album in a career that spans more than 20 years, is the apt “Please Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood.” It’s a song whose core message applies as much to Ndegeocello as to the legendary woman being honored by the collection, Nina Simone. From the start of her career, Ndegeocello has been compared to the late icon by critics. Musical geniuses with a rep for not suffering fools, and who were (and are) leagues ahead of most of their contemporaries, both women are something of patron saints for artsy bohos and serious political activists alike. Pour, a tribute album of 14 songs recorded by Simone—and done here in collaboration with a who’s-who of undersung indie singers—arrives in the midst of an especially fertile, muscular period in Ndegeocello’s own career. Having traversed R&B, rock, jazz, blues, hip-hop, electronica, new wave and folk, she effortlessly synthesizes all influences and experimentation into a sound that sits outside any specific genre. Pour pushes the envelope further, creating a singular world in which a country twang in one track jostles neatly against the raucous New Orleans energy of another, while a hymnal effect might hum through the song that follows. It’s sensuous, sexy and, at times, haunting, easily one of the best albums of 2012. PW spoke with Ndegeocello from the upstate New York home she shares with her partner and their 3-year-old son, Atticus. What was it about Nina Simone and her music that inspired you to do the tribute album? Chris Bruce [Pour’s co-producer] is like our resident DJ on tour, and he had been playing a lot of her stuff. And then I got asked to do the Women in Jazz series that Toshi Reagan curated at the Schomburg in Harlem, and I chose [to honor Nina]. It was just something that was kinda circling around in the ether. After the show, people asked me if there was going to be a recording, and that sparked the idea to try to get it done. I didn’t have to do too much to get it to happen. You’ve often been referred to as the musical or artistic daughter of Nina Simone. Do you feel a kinship with her in that way? Definitely, yeah. But she’s in a league of her own. I really can’t think of any artist that is as unique as she is. I kind of stay away from that

[way of thinking], especially with this recording. There’s just no comparison. And I grew up after the civil-rights movement, so there’s no way I could understand or even begin to put myself in the position she was in as a recording artist. It’s a deeper subject to me than just “we are both black; we look a certain way, and we do political songs.” Her story has so many facets to it. But in terms of her gift, she stands alone. I really do hope people see in her story that there are various stories that should be addressed in this time and in the past. I’m hoping that this album will have them try to find out more about her. You really captured her range. A lot of people reduce her to just being this icon of rage and fury. Some of her most radical, subversive work was her love songs—the crucial aspect of her celebrating black people carving a space for vulnerability, playfulness and tenderness with each other. I hope people listening to this collection will embrace the totality of her expression and what it means. Yeah, I hope so too. As soon as I started the project I went and read Princess Noire, which is someone else’s take on her life, and then I read her [autobiography], I Put a Spell On You, and that’s the only real information I had. Hilton Als wrote the liner notes, and he gave me some articles to check out. Again, I’m careful to even try to imagine what it is she went through, but the part that stuck out to me when making the recording is that she was probably one of the greatest song stylists ever. I think she tried hard to be a great song stylist, and she achieved that in songs like “Turn Me On,” or “Either Way I Lose.” They’re so romantic and beautiful and sexy. So it was important to me to do them. And Sinead O’Connor was the one who was like, “‘Don’t Take All Night’ is the best Nina Simone song ever recorded.” [Laughs.] I tried to sing “Young, Gifted & Black,” but it just had a gravity that was too dark, you know? We asked D’Angelo, but he was too busy rehearsing, and I’m so happy things turned out the way they did because I think Cody Chestnutt has given that song such modernity and presence. I can’t help but think of Trayvon Martin. During the recording process, that was the question everybody had: How can I make this song my own? How did you decide what to include? Chris and I picked them together. I wanted to

take something that would be a clean listening experience in one sitting, so I left out a couple of songs. But also it was super important to pick out ones she wrote so royalties would go to her estate. She gets writing credit on “See-Line Woman” and “Young, Gifted & Black” and “Be My Husband”—actually, her husband wrote that. But it was important for me to pick those and then, like you said, to find the romantic, beautiful ones and the ones that I felt such connection to. I mean, this could be three volumes. You know who I’ve been really into lately? Or who I feel has not been really given the regard I feel he deserves as a lyricist? Who? I’ve been really listening to a lot of George Clinton. If you just read the lyrics of “Cosmic Slop” right now—I wish Obama would—I mean, “I’m an untied dog in a dogmatic society.” I’ve been really on my mission of finding someone to fund that project. I know he’s super funky, and it’s a great band, and everybody loves this thing about Parliament, but have you ever just listened to the lyrics? Just give yourself a day and listen to the lyrics. I find him to just be incendiary. ■ Meshell Ndegeocello: A Dedication to Nina Simone: Mon., Oct. 15, 7:30pm. World Cafe Live, 3025 Walnut St. worldcafelive.com

ON THE PAGE

ON THE RECORD Tame Impala

Rittenhouse Square Rebels: The Trailer

Lonerism (Modular Recordings) Sounds like: Fantastic, psychedelic sophomore from the young Perth-born Aussies who make excellently nuanced chugging tracks of foot-tapping druggy rock. Free association: Volume and weirdness prevent any lump-in of Brooklynization. For fans of: Spiritualized x Youth Lagoon + Legendary Pink Dots, scuzzy stoners. (Bill Chenevert)

By Lorie Maher (Abbott Press)

In summary: Never mind the book—the two YouTube trailers for Lorie Maher’s adolescentcoming-of-age-in-Philly novel are themselves some of the best entertainment we’ve had this week. Maher’s high-pitched sales pitch, delivered in the greatest deadpan since Jim Halpert, is a work of rhetorical art. Akin to: Former Daily Show correspondent Kristen Schaal delivering a school report on a topic she’s been up all night cramming for. Recommendation: Watch the trailers. If you can refrain from buying the book to figure out if Maher’s serious, you’re strongerwilled than us. (Stephen H. Segal)

The Vaccines

Come of Age (Columbia Europe) Sounds like: An excellent sophomore from the over-it Brit guitar rock foursome that doesn’t so much as build on their debut as sustain it and keep them moving forward. Free association: Ironic smart-assness with thrash and reverb from the U.K. like old times. For fans of: Young Prisms x Kaiser Chiefs, the Strokes/Franz Ferdinand, young snark. (B.C.)

ON THE GUEST LIST

Matt & Kim

Lightning (Fader Label) Sounds like: The sad truth is that this record’s totally whack and boring, an extremely disappointing follow-up to Sidewalks. Weak hooks, repetitive, bland shout rock. Free association: Let’s agree to disagree, AllMusic: You got this “Album Pick” wrong. For fans of: Mates of State/The Ting Tings, a 2-piece, Brooklyn-based The Go! Team. (B.C.)

4 0 p h i l a d e l p h i a w e e k l y I o c t o b e r 1 0 - 1 6 , 2 0 1 2 I p h i l a d e l p h i a w e e k l y. c o m

Freelance Whales

Diluvia (Mom & Pop Music) Sounds like: The pleasant-but-mild sophomore from Queens folksy indie rockers is another batch of cute, charming tracks that lack real bite or hypnotic sonic charm. Free association: These songs might as well be about God or kittens or knitting. For fans of: Sufjan Stevens, Los Campesinos! x Rilo Kiley/The Shins, potluck brunch. (B.C.)

Ultraista

Ultraista (Temporary Residence Ltd.) Sounds like: Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich puts together a foursome that perfects Krautrock-influenced synthpop that’s peaceful, rhythmic and perfectly ambient. Free association: Not a ton of variety, but loads of pleasant, listenable atmospherics. For fans of: Grimes/Lykke Li x The Knife, Chromatics/M83, background music. (B.C.)

Sun Airway

Soft Fall (Dead Oceans) Sounds like: Local heroes! This is a fantastic record of ambient and dreamy synth pop that’s dense, complex and worthy of constant listening and year-end best lists. Free association: The kind of creativity that firmly plants Philly on the national arts map. For fans of: Neon Indian + Philip Glass, Delorean/Tanlines/Dale Earnhardt Jr., PA rock. (B.C.)

Alpha Girls Premiere Screening

>> Parks and Recreation

ON THE IDIOT BOX Parks and Recreation

Thursdays, 9:30pm, NBC Captive audience: Mockumentary nerds, political satire fans, former watchers of The Office who just can’t deal with that shit anymore. Moment of truth: The best sitcom on network TV (Yeah, you heard me, Modern Family fans!) continues to get better in its fifth season, as newly elected Pawnee City Councilwoman Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler, best actress on TV, period) fends off City Hall corruption while maintaining a long-distance relationship with her boyfriend Ben (invaluable straight man Adam Scott), who’s working in D.C. Meanwhile, the Parks Department is now being run by that grumpy Libertarian Ron Swanson (Nick Offerman, best moustache on TV, period), which means things will get even more ass-out funny. Emmy or phlegmmy: Emmy. Please! (Craig D. Lindsey)

It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia

Thursdays, 10pm, FX Captive audience: Fans of dark, tasteless, crass, offensive, shameless, uncomfortable, crude humor—and Philadelphians. Also, people who can’t wait to wear a Greenman outfit this Halloween! Moment of truth: Leave it to TV’s longest-running, most politically incorrect sitcom (next to its West Coast counterpart Curb Your Enthusiasm, of course) to start off its eighth season with an episode mostly about Hitler (again!). Yes, the incompetent, hopelessly amoral gang from Paddy’s Pub are back to do more wrong shit that’ll have you giggling uncontrollably. Apparently, this season will be about the show openly admitting it’s running out of ideas, as more Der Fuhrer jokes are mined in the opener, and old bits and plotlines literally get recycled in a future episode. But, damn it, it’s still funny. Emmy or phlegmmy: Emmy. (C.D.L.)

Wednesday, Oct. 3, The Trocadero Overall vibe: A full house at the Troc, as hundreds of friends and fans came out to hug and high-five filmmakers Tony Trov and Johnny Zito at the debut of their sorority-sisters horror flick, Alpha Girls. Most memorable moment: Alpha Girls opens with a truly frightening scene in the basement of a sorority house circa the late 1800s. The gore/gross/yuck factor was powerful enough to make even lifetime horror fans close their eyes. Honorable mention: There are not one, not two, but three surprise twists in the last 20 minutes. Scene stealer: Beautiful Philadelphia locations, strong acting and fantastic editing make the film; Ron Jeremy as a Catholic priest steals it. (Leah Cevoli)

This Is The Week That Is: The Election Special

Thurs., Oct. 4, Plays and Players Theatre Overall vibe: Good ol’ fashioned political satire wrapped up in a clever and wonderfully theatric taco. Most memorable moment: It’s hard to say, given that the two-hour show is chock-full of great zingers. From the first presidential debate to the competitive equestrian sport of dressage, the 1812 Productions gang tackled it all. The return of Jennifer Childs’ character, Patsy from South Philly, was also a big hit with the audience. Scene stealer: Writer, performer and uncanny Michelle Obama lookalike Aimé Donna Kelly. (Nicole Finkbiner)

Nashville

Wednesdays, 10pm, ABC Captive audience: Country-music lovers, nighttime-soap diehards, those six people who actually saw Country Strong. Moment of truth: Callie Khouri, the screenwriter who won an Oscar for her female-solidarity adventure Thelma & Louise, goes into bitchfest mode with this new show she’s created. The never-unemployed Connie Britton (Friday Night Lights, American Horror Story) stars as an aging, on-the-decline country singer who finds herself having to contend with a manipulative Taylor Swiftlike ingenue (Hayden Panettiere), who’s not averse to climbing in and out of beds in order to climb the charts. It has the potential to be serial drama the way it’s supposed to be: catty, cutthroat and compulsively watchable. Emmy or phlegmmy: Emmy. (C.D.L.)

TO PLACE AN AD:

I recently discovered that my boyfriend of seven months and I have opposing viewpoints on the whole “life begins at conception” issue. He’s not a crazy zealot, but he is strongly against abortion. And while he won’t go so far as to say abortion should be banned, he does believe in the whole “personhood” concept, i.e., that a fetus—from the moment of conception—is a person with the same rights as any other person. This shocked me, and I almost broke up with him. He says that disagreeing on issues is fine in a relationship, but I am not so sure. I find his position abhorrent, one that ignores hundreds of real-life factors, and it opens the door for a litany of laws regulating my body. He’s a sweet, loving guy and progressive in every other way. But I’m suddenly unsure about a relationship I viewed as totally solid just a few days ago. I’m not sure if this should be a deal breaker or if this is just a disagreement. Please advise. Love Is Finding Errors Your boyfriend won’t go so far as to say abortion should be banned ... or maybe he saw the shocked look on your face and realized that going so far as to say abortion should be banned to you would be a big mistake. Here’s a good way to find out if your boyfriend is serious about not wanting to impose his personal beliefs on others or whether he’s an anti-choice zealot: Tell him you’re pregnant. Some men blithely assume anti-choice positions because “personhood” and other anti-choice arguments appeal to them in the abstract and, hey, it’s not like their bodies or their futures are on the line, right? Most anti-choice-in-the-abstract men come to a very different conclusion about the importance of access to safe and legal abortion when an unplanned pregnancy impacts them directly. So tell your boyfriend you’re pregnant. You can present it as a thought experiment if you prefer, LIFE, but I think you should flat-out lie to him. Then, once the news sinks in, ask him if he’s ready to provide financial support for a child and/or make regular, monthly child-support payments directly to you. Ask him if he’s ready for the responsibilities (and the grind) of full- or even part-time parenting. Ask him if he knows you well enough—just seven short months into this relationship—to make the kind of lifetime commitment that scrambling your DNA together entails. Because even if you don’t get married, even if you don’t live together and raise this child together, you two will be stuck with each other for the rest of your lives if you have the baby. I’m guessing his answers will be “no, no and no,” and he’ll offer to drive you to the nearest abortion clinic himself. As for whether you should date someone who is anti-choice, well, women have to be in control of their own bodies—and when and whether they reproduce—in order to be truly equal. I don’t think I could date someone who didn’t see me as his equal or who believed that the state should regulate my sexual or reproductive choices. So, yeah, this shit would be a deal breaker for me, LIFE, if I had a vagina. Actually, this issue is a deal breaker for me, even though I don’t have a vagina. I wouldn’t date a gay dude who was anti-choice. Any gay man who can’t see the connection between a woman’s right to have children when she chooses and his right to love and marry the person he chooses is an idiot. And I don’t date idiots. If your hypothetical pregnancy doesn’t shock your boyfriend out of his idiocy, LIFE, you’ll have to ask yourself if you can continue dating this idiot.

And speaking of abortion ... Researchers at Washington University in St. Louis released the results of a massive study—more than 9,000 women participated—on the effects of making birth control more widely available. And how did they make birth control more widely available? They gave it away for free. And it turns out that making birth control available to women at no cost, which is what the president is trying to do, reduced the teen birth rate by more than 80 percent (from 34.3 births per 1,000 teens on average to 6.3 births per 1,000 for teens enrolled in the study), and it reduced the number of abortions by 62-78 percent (from 19.6 abortions per 1,000 women on average to 4.4 to 7.5 abortions per 1,000 women enrolled in the study). A person can’t call himself pro-life and oppose access to birth control (or Obamacare!). If you do oppose access to birth control—or you oppose Obamacare because it expands access to birth control—you’re not really pro-life. You’re just antisex. I found porn on my kid’s computer and I talked to him about being careful about spyware, the difference between actual intimacy and objectification, and that kind of thing. I don’t have a problem with a 15-year-old boy looking at porn—so long as he’s discreet and doesn’t do it to excess. But what my kid was looking at was standard stuff, i.e., garden variety M/F porn and a touch of M/M porn. But a friend found a stash of really kinky violence-against-women stuff on her kid’s computer. I’m thinking a parent can’t let that go as easily. She’s about to confront her kid. I don’t think you can help her with what to say, since she’ll already have said something, but what would you have advised her to say? My Friend’s Kinky Son You meet two kinds of people at kink events and in kink spaces: people who’ve always known they were kinky—people who were jerking off to kinky fantasies and/or porn long before they were 15— and people who got into kink after falling in love with someone who was kinky. Your friend’s son sounds like one of the former. It’s important for your friend to bear in mind that her son, if he is indeed kinky, sought out kinky porn. Kinky porn didn’t make him kinky. And being shamed by his mother for his porn preferences— or his kinks—isn’t going to unmake his kinks. That said, MFKS, your friend should talk with her son about the difference between porn and real sex—kinky or vanilla—and the difference between erotic power exchange and violence. She should also talk to him about safety and misogyny, and she should encourage him to be thoughtful about his sexuality. And most importantly, MFKS, she should emphasize the importance of meaningful and informed CONSENT. Your friend’s son isn’t going to want to dialogue with his mom about his porn stash or his kinks, MFKS, so she should go in prepared to monologue at him. Finally, there’s a chance that your friend’s son isn’t kinky and was just looking for the most appalling shit he could find on the internet. Mom should acknowledge that as a possibility, and her son, even if he is kinky, is likely to seize on that excuse. If he does claim that he was just looking for shocking video clips, she should say: “I believe you. But there’s a small chance that you’re saying that because you think it’s what I want to hear. So I’m going to say everything I wanted to say about safety, misogyny and consent just in case. And all of it applies to vanilla sex, too.” n
