Luscious Jackson hits UT on Saturday after a 13-year hiatus.

WHAT’S HAPPENING — BEFORE IT HAPPENS ... M US I C

Luscious Jackson

Tell me if you remember this one: “With my naked eye, I saw all the falling rain coming down on me. With my naked eye, I saw all if I said it all I could see.” It was 1996 when these lyrics, the infectious hook from Luscious Jackson’s “Naked Eye,” pushed the genre-bending ladyband, named after former Philadelphia 76ers starter Lucious Jackson, into mainstream waters. They’d risen to crazy success after just four years on the music scene, introduced via the Beastie Boys’ Grand Royal imprint—it’s impossible to read anything about LJ that doesn’t mention the Beasties—and, later, Capitol Records. Between the musical glory years of 1991 and 2000, when punk, alternative, hip-hop and grunge seemed to flourish both independent of and alongside each other, this undeniably badass quartet—comprised of Jill Cunniff, Gabby Glaser, Vivian Trimble and Kate Schellenbach—managed to become a mainstay in the mélange that was New York’s sonic scene. They released three full-length albums, adding a funk-fueled R&B flavor to grunge-ridden alternative radio and teen movie soundtracks. They broke up at the turn of the century to concentrate on other aspects of their lives: two years following Trimble’s harmonious departure and after 1999’s Electric Honey failed to even gain chart traction. But a new century, dub step and twerking can’t keep a good band down. In 2011, Cunniff, Glaser and Schellenbach rejoined forces somewhat quietly, crowdsourcing the necessary funds (in two days!) to begin working on a new, full-length Luscious Jackson album. That LP, Magic Hour, was released two weeks ago, garnering extremely mixed reviews from print and digital ‘zines. Rolling Stone said its “vocals still waver charmingly off-key, grooves still conjure a Nineties Lower East Side rent party.” Thankfully, since Philly’s the first of two East Coast dates the ladies are playing—beating NYC by two weeks—we’re ‘bout to bear witness for ourselves. / RANDY LOBASSO Sat., Nov. 23. 8:30pm. $20.

From an astonishingly young age, Israeli-born violinist Itzhak Perlman had dreams of performing classical music, though he spent the majority of his formative years learning to beat the odds in order to get there. As a boy of three, he was refused admission to a music conservatory in his native Tel Aviv (because he was deemed too small to hold a violin). A year later, he contracted polio and was told by doctors that the chances of him fulfilling his ambitions were slim. Thanks to practice on a toy instrument and an awe-inspiring perseverance, he earned himself an appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show, acceptance into Juilliard and a concert at Carnegie Hall (all before his 20th birthday). Over the next several decades, Perlman continued to mold himself into one of the world’s most revered contemporary classical music figures. He conducted well over a dozen of the country’s most esteemed orchestras and racked up an impressive collection of honors, including a whopping 15 Grammy Awards and the Medal of Liberty and the National Medal of Arts by Presidents Reagan and Clinton. This week, Perlman makes his return to the Kimmel Center, as both a featured soloist and conductor, taking on the works of Beethoven, Dvorák and Brahms over the course of four days. Despite his humility, expect an imposing air of prestige sure to be felt by everyone marveling at this man’s inarguable genius. / JAKE ABBATE

Red Baraat As the instant exchange of information is now commonplace worldwide, so has the term “global community” become ubiquitous. Exposure to different cultures brings different music, and fortunately, this combination of different styles of music brings revolutionary groups like Red Baraat. Bhangra and other forms of punjabi beats added real flavor to Western hip-hop in the early 2000s via Missy Elliot’s “Get Ur Freak On” and “Addictive” by Truth Hurts. In 2008, famed dhol player/drummer Sunny Jain built the Brooklyn-based Red Baarat mixing elements of hard-driving North Indian bhangra rhythms with a bit of jazz, go-go, brass funk and hip-hop. The vibe of this eightpiece sound machine is undeniable, resulting in acclaim and popularity in all corners of the planet. Like most brass bands, Red Baraat has an energy designed to make a crowd move. Unlike most, however, its sound is uniquely inspiring. The tightly organized percussionists drive the vibrant horn section to new heights of musical union. The band also strives to challenge itself each show, demonstrating its obvious prowess with frequent improvisation. Drawing crowds even more diverse than the multicultural group itself, Red Baraat’s celebration of world music is remarkably infectious. “We are simple creatures that desire community,” explains Jain in the band’s official bio. “If we can unite people of all backgrounds and ethnicities to partake in the exuberance of life through the universal language of music, then life is that much sweeter.” / KENNEDY ALLEN 8:30pm. $15-$18.

The Diabolique Ball

Electrical Technician!

One of the most endearing things about Philadelphia is the vast array of bizarrely beautiful social gatherings that satisfy as many offbeat cultural interests as there are residents—mostly free of judgment. The Diabolique Ball, for instance, has established itself as the premiere formal BDSM/fetish event on the East Coast and, for the past 16 years, has been providing those communities with an opportunity to play and explore on a large, communal scale (while raising money for some truly worthwhile charities). Diabolique Ball 2013: Grindhouse Horror promises to feature kinky carnival-style “play stations”—and don’t confuse them with the video jawns, people—plus full-frontal fetishistic horror movie footage. With costume requirements ranging from black-tie formal to bearing all but genitalia, ball guests are sure to witness the creme de la creme of the city’s goth/industrial, fetish and alternative lifestyle scenes. Speaking of costumes, they’re mandatory, and there’s a strict no-nudity, no-coercion policy. Under no circumstances will sexual activity be allowed, as attendees’ comfort and safety is paramount. In fact, the event’s website has a list of rules and etiquette points so all confusion can be prevented. Peep it before purchasing tickets (and be a good little bitch). This year, proceeds from the Diabolique Ball will benefit ActionAIDS, a Philadelphia-based nonprofit organization dedicated to improving HIV+ individuals’ quality of life. Go be bad to do some good. / K.A.

Four years ago, longtime political journalists John Heilemann and Mark Halperin co-authored Game Change: Obama and the Clintons, McCain and Palin and the Race of a Lifetime, the bestknown behind-the-scenes account of 2008’s historic presidential election. Like its title suggests, the book told of the momentous, unlikely rise of then-Illinois Sen. Barack Obama and the Republicans’ struggle to gain momentum throughout the election season. Even better, it exposed how former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, GOP nominee John McCain’s painfully unqualified VP pick, thought Queen Elizabeth was England’s political leader, not then-Prime Minister Gordon Brown—although, to be fair, it’s not known whether Palin ever had any idea who Brown was. The success of Game Change—and its widely-watched HBO movie that nabbed a well-deserved Emmy for Julianne Moore—led to Double Down: Game Change 2012, Heilemann and Halperin’s rehash of the 2012 election, which, if you’ll recall, was a bit less exciting. Via more than 500 “deep background” interviews, the brimming sequel tells the story of ex-Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney’s ineptitude and his team’s struggle to gain footing while toeing the line between wealthy establishment Republicanism and red-faced Tea Party extremism. It also examines what led to President Obama’s poor showing at the Denver debate and his team’s regrouping thereafter. Written more like a gossipy saga than an authoritative retelling, Double Down cements the gents’ standing as election-campaign dramatists of the first order.

Underground Arts keeps on finding great bands that need a mid-size venue in which to rock. It’s ideal for acts like Boston’s the Indobox, who’ve pulled in some local talent to open for them tonight in the form of Grimace Federation. The Indobox is a four-piece that specializes in dancey rock using traditionally-minded indie noise as a starting point, with builds and incantations that achieve full-on psychedelic freakout levels. Joey Zarick mans the guitar; Mike Carter specializes in guitars; Jules Jennsen’s behind the drums; and Steve Learson’s responsible for keys and bass. They all sing. After another successful trip to Camp Bisco, the ‘box snagged some all-important studio time and churned out their brand newest, an eight-song EP called Shapes and Colors. It’s their most collaborative songwriting effort to date, and they’re mighty pumped to deliver their sparkly new trippy dance dirges a la LCD Soundsystem or the Rapture. Then there’s Grimace Federation, a Philly three-piece consisting of Wes Schwartz on computers, guitars and electronic stuffs, Christopher Wood manning the percussion and Jim Calvarese on bass. Yup, no singin’—just jazzy, funky and manic instrumental jams that wouldn’t be unwelcome alongside a fusion of Medeski, Martin and Wood, Tortoise or the Slip. Makes total sense for these two to share a stage. And tonight’s the night. / BILL CHENEVERT

It also got him invited to the ultra-prestigious Portsmouth Invitational tournament in 2007, where his stellar performance kicked off a post-graduate career that’s seen him play professionally for most of the past six years. Not in the NBA, though; Salisbery wasn’t that lucky. Instead, he’s been playing overseas, on teams in Greece, Mexico and the Dominican Republic. “At the end of the day, wherever I land I can be satisfied,” he says, “as long as I know that I put that hard work in. I can look back on things and say, ‘I tried my best.’” Today, the Lancaster native is back on home soil, and the NBA is closer at hand than ever. Salisbery’s one of 16 players who’ve just about made it through training camp to play on the inaugural squad of the Delaware 87ers—the brand new farm team the 76ers have started this year as a training ground for young talent. Salisbery’s story is a fairly typical one for the Development League—the D-League, as it’s commonly called—which is the NBA’s equivalent to baseball’s Minor League. Players often bounce around from team to team, competing every game not only against the opposing squad for points, but also against their fellow teammates for attention. After all, there are only so many openings in the NBA; D-League players need to showcase their skills as best they can if they want to earn a shot at the big league. Couple that pressure to perform with the low wages—on average, a D-League player earns roughly $20,000 a year, which is about what Sixers guard Evan Turner makes in one quarter of play—and the grueling travel demands, and it’s evident that this is a far cry from the glitz and glamour of the NBA lifestyle. It’s hard, says Salisbery, to be away from his family so much—“but it’s a sacrifice you have to take, because you can’t play basketball forever. So while you can, you have to make the most of it.” The 87ers, who’ll play their home games at the University of Delaware’s Bob Carpenter Center in Newark, were still finalizing their roster as of press time this week, so there’s a slight chance that by the time you’re reading this, Salisbery may not have made the last training-camp cut from 16 players to 12. And if he has? Well—the NBA’s still a long shot. But not as long as it was. WHEN THE NBA first launched the D-League back in 2001, it comprised eight franchises across the southeastern United States; that number grew to 15 in 2005 and to 17 this season. In the early years, there was much less direct interaction between NBA franchises and D-League teams than there is now, and even today, there are three different


Moszer is aware that, as far as competing for local entertainment dollars, his main rival is the movie theater. “It’s an unknown commodity still,” he says of launching the D-League in Delaware. “It’s the education process, telling [people] that these are NBA players. These are guys that can and will be playing in the NBA, or did play in the NBA.”

SURPRISINGLY LITTLE hard data is available on the D-League’s profitability— although a Sports Illustrated report from earlier this year says that “more than half of the franchises claim to be profitable.” For the Sixers, while it would certainly be nice to turn a profit on their latest business venture, the 87ers’ main function isn’t to be a money pool but an incubator for talent. And earlier this month, drafting Norvel Pelle with the sixth overall pick in the D-League draft ensured that the 87ers would, at the very least, be regarded as a team willing to take a risk on a player who might pay off big. Pelle, a 20-year-old L.A. native once regarded by athletic recruiting powerhouse Rivals.com as the top center in his high school class of 2011, never got the chance to develop his skills in college as almost all pro prospects do. Twice, Pelle failed to meet academic standards to play at the collegiate level; he was forced to forgo commitments to both St. Johns University and Iona College, two New York schools. Instead, he sought to make NBA history by becoming the first player picked without having any college or international experience since the NBA modified its eligibility rules in 2005. But that improbable plan was nixed when a foot injury caused Pelle to withdraw from the NBA draft. So when the D-League came calling, Pelle was all ears. He knew it was his last path to the NBA—and “that’s everybody’s ultimate goal at the end of the day,” he says. More than anything else, he says, the biggest challenge facing him at the 87ers is the sheer intensity of practice at this level. “In my position, coming from high school, it’s something new,” he says. “I didn’t go to college to experience the college practices and whatnot. Jumping into this is definitely something I have to adapt to.” Pelle says that he should be back to playing soon—he’s still recovering from that foot injury—and the 87ers front office is hoping that their 6-foot-10, 210-pound center can make a difference not just for their own team, but maybe for their parent club as well. “We are a laboratory,” says the team’s general manager, Brandon Williams—the man most responsible for personnel decisions. Williams describes Pelle as a “clear project” and someone who hasn’t “had the opportunity to play in a longstanding system, who [is] still developing physically.” That system that Pelle and his teammates now find themselves in doesn’t just encompass the 87ers locker room, but also

“At once traditional, and boldly inventive… Diamond’s script positively zings with good lines and smart ideas.”

p h i l a d e l p h i a w e e k l y. c o m I

models for D-League team ownership. Independent ownership is the most traditional in sports, where an owner finances the team and oversees operations. Then there’s the hybrid affiliation model, whereby an independent owner has sole ownership of the team but affiliates with one or more NBA franchises that run its basketball operations and draw from its talent pool. Lastly, there’s the parent-club ownership model, in which an NBA team totally owns and controls its own D-League affiliate. The 87ers fall into this last category—and the team’s president, Aaron Moszer, says the entire league is trending quickly in that direction. The NBA, he says, “would like to eventually get to 30 D-League teams with the 30 NBA teams, one for each property”— a substantial increase from the current 17-team league. “I would anticipate probably within the next 10 years, we’ll be seeing that.” From the NBA’s standpoint, the D-League has been a clear success: A record 103 players with D-League experience are on this season’s NBA opening-day rosters, up from 86 last year. That’s 24 percent of all NBA players—a list that includes guys like Houston Rockets sensation Jeremy Lin and San Antonio Spurs fan favorite Danny Green. The 87ers aren’t Philadelphia’s first foray into the D-League, though. From 2001-2013, the Sixers were affiliated at various times, all via the hybrid model, with the Roanoke Dazzle, the Fort Worth Flyers, the New Mexico Thunderbirds and the Sioux Falls Skyforce. But those relationships were never monogamous; that is, the Sixers had always been part of a pool of NBA teams sharing stakes in an individual D-League franchise. Then Sixers general manager Sam Hinkie finally decided last April to purchase the D-League’s Utah Flash organization, inactive since 2011, and to base the team close to home. (The 87ers’ name, obviously 76ersinspired, references the fact that Delaware was the first state to ratify the Constitution in 1787.) “We’re 40 minutes down the road from the Wells Fargo Center,” Moszer says. “It’s a great tool for Sam Hinkie and his entire staff to be able to come down and watch somebody play at the D-League game and turn around and drive home that night. Not a lot of the D-League franchises have that luxury.” Moszer, 38, was hired in April after 11 years with the Ripken Baseball organization, managing three Minor League teams. While he did play college basketball at the tiny Lewis & Clarke College in Portland, Oregon, the Sixers didn’t bring him on board for his jump shot; the expectation is that he can take that same marketing savvy that served him so well in baseball and transfer it to the hard court. He’s got his work cut out for him. The only other sizable sports team in Delaware is the Wilmington Blue Rocks, a Minor League baseball affiliate to the Kansas City Royals, so there’s not a big live-sports market yet;

the larger Sixers organization. The two teams’ affiliation allows for what Moszer, the 87ers president, describes as a tremendous amount of synergy both on and off the court. The 87ers, he says, operate under the same business philosophy as their parent club—meaning that advertising, marketing and other spending habits all mimic whatever direction the Sixers are going in. “Each person in our staff works directly with their counterpart with the Sixers,” he says. And that applies not just to business practices, but to basketball philosophy as well. Fans can expect to see newly hired head coach Rod Baker implement the same playbook, from pick-and-roll offense to defensive strategies—and even the same conditioning workouts that they would if they were seated in the Wells Fargo Center. Given that approach, it’s important that Moszer and Williams understand the D-League experience as more than just administrators. In fact, twelve years ago, Williams himself was one of the ball players shooting for that NBA chance. From 1996 to 2003, he recalls, he found himself constantly relocating to small-market cities, in the U.S. and overseas, in hopes of eventually catching on with an NBA team. His NBA career lasted a handful of games, although he did earn a championship ring as a member of an upstart San Antonio Spurs squad in 1999. After hanging up his sneakers for good, he transitioned into the business side of the game; prior to joining the 87ers, Williams—who also holds a front office position with the Sixers— worked as the NBA’s associate vice president of basketball operations. Thinking back to the days when he was first offered a D-League players contract after several years in the (now defunct) Continental Basketball Association, Williams recalls being “a little skeptical. At that stage of my career, would the league be strong enough? Would I be caught in the middle of the season looking for a job?” But he found the D-League to be something more than he’d expected: “I saw it, probably the first week or two of my experience. [The Continental Basketball Association] had history and a track record. D-League didn’t—it was brand new. But what it had was, it looked a lot like the NBA. The lights, the floors, the colors, the jerseys were of a better quality. The trainers, the balls and the facilities we used were just better.” NOV. 16, 2013: It’s Saturday afternoon, and the 87ers are holding an open practice for the community to come check them out at Delaware Technical Community College. About 80 people have shown up, and the atmosphere in the room is that of a Division III basketball game. The play, however, is decidedly more akin to that of the pros, with plenty of stout defense, hard-nosed lay-ups and silky three-pointers to keep the crowd entertained. Afterwards, young fans scramble up to

the team for autographs. “It’s hard to gauge how tall they are until you’re down here with them,” marvels one local dad, Jay Hayes, 36, standing by while his two daughters collect autographs. This decidedly kid-friendly atmosphere is part of what Moszer describes as a commitment to “an affordable family entertainment environment”—a marketing philosophy common in the D-League. “The majority of our fans won’t really care if we win or lose,” Moszer says. “It’s about the camaraderie that you develop with your community. There aren’t a lot of entertainment options during the winter months here in Delaware.” Lacking the NBA’s innate draw, the 87ers have devised incentive-based ticket packages—for example, a 25-ticket package guarantees a chance to high-five the players as they walk onto the court—along with family-based perks like kid-friendly zones and face painting. Research supports this approach to ticket sales; attendance across the D-League is rising, with last year marking the first time in its young history that the league crossed the 1 million threshold for total attendance, averaging just under 3,000 tickets per game. If that number seems low, consider that it’s a 6.57 percent increase in attendance from the year prior. For comparison’s sake, the Sixers draw an average of 14,000 fans per game—which actually ranks last in the NBA. Temple’s average is 8,165. Speaking of Temple, the 87ers could have a real impact on the Philadelphia college landscape, too. The way Dwayne Killings, an assistant coach at Temple, sees it, the 87ers’ proximity to Philly gives the Sixers a cheap, easy way to take a longer look at any local talent coming out of college. “Especially the guys that are close to being in the NBA,” he says, “to have that opportunity right in their backyard—it could be what puts them over the top.” And for a struggling franchise like the Sixers, this new feeding system might just be the best way to assess and develop future talent. Not everyone can be the Los Angeles Lakers or the Miami Heat; free agent NBA players simply aren’t tempted to make the move to Philadelphia the way they are to those other star-studded destination cities. It makes sense, then, that the Sixers—rather than shelling out top dollar for overvalued players as they have in the past—should embrace this more organic process. Not only is it cheaper, but in time, it may well prove to be just as effective. In a few weeks, then, there will be chants and cheers erupting out of the Bob Carpenter Center. And every player’s NBA probability will rise and fall along with the trajectory of each jump shot. n The 87ers season begins Sat., Nov. 23 with an away game at Canton, Ohio. The first home game is Sun., Dec. 8 at 7pm vs. Canton, at 7pm. Bob Carpenter Center, University of Delaware, 631 S. College Ave., Newark, Del. Tickets: $14.10 to $108.60. nba.com/dleague/delaware

FOOD & DRINK

Let’s Make That Half Full Five drinks particularly well-suited to the holiday table. By Brian Freedman // bfreedman@philadelphiaweekly.com

T

he holiday season is upon us: Time to drink like you mean it, or at least enough to act like you’re thrilled-just-thrilled to see everyone with a seat at the ThanksgivingHanukkah-Christmas table, even creepy Uncle Ned and your sister’s insufferable boyfriend. Happily, there are loads of new or otherwise notable beers and spirits that, even if they’re not available in Pennsylvania, can be found across bridges, through toll booths and on the other sides of local bodies of water. As Hanukkah comes as early as Thanksgiving this year, let’s start with the excellent new He’Brew holiday releases from Shmaltz Brewing Company, located in a brand-spanking-new 20,000 foot brewery in Clifton Park, New York. These guys have been crafting serious suds for some time now, but lately, it seems, they have stepped their game up to the stratosphere. He’Brew’s Death of a Contract Brewer Black IPA is phenomenal, as is the massive Jewbelation Reborn, which boasts 17 percent alcohol, 17 types of hops and 17 styles of malt. Drink one of these, and even your impressively skilled Jewish mother won’t be able to make you feel guilty for not calling more often—Its powers of fortification are that impressive. On the spirits end of things, there is also plenty to be thankful for. Whiskey, in my family and so many others, is as important a part of the annual festivities as the roasted bird.

This year, I plan on drinking plenty of the magnificent Four Roses 125th Anniversary Limited Edition Small Batch Bourbon, a stunning sipper that you may (justifiably) decide not to share and instead keep all for yourself. I also have become a fan of the wonderful, aged Irish whiskies of Knappogue Castle— particularly the single malt, 16-yearold twin wood Sherry finish bottling. Seek this out, and sip with glee. If you want that comforting, caramel-tinged character but tend to shy away from whiskey, make sure to try the excellent Casamigos Reposado Tequila. It has smoothness and soul to spare, and, based on extensive personal testing, is difficult to have fewer than two glasses of. (Their blanco is also lovely, either on its own or in a well-made cocktail.) Rum, too—while not necessarily the first spirit most people think of when talk turns to the great holidays of autumn and winter—has its own unique appeal right about now. I find that a great glass, like of the marvelous Caliche Rum from Puerto Rico, is a perfect way to remind yourself that the cold days and long nights of winter won’t last forever. Plus, this one is treated to solera aging, not terribly different from good Sherry, and is rich and rewarding enough to warm you up on the coldest winter nights. All of these are standouts in their respective category. And while they may not all be on shelves in the city proper, they’re more than worth the effort: Good drinking always is—especially this time of year. 

THE WOMAN IN BLACK: A GHOST PLAY Halloween may be over, but if you are looking for a dose of scary fun, make a trip to the Act II Playhouse in Ambler for its tremendously entertaining staging of the horror classic The Woman in Black: A Ghost Play. Spectacularly directed by James J. Christy and featuring splendid performances by Dan Kern and Jered McLenigan, Woman is an old-fashioned frightfest that makes superb use of the playwithin-a-play structure. Based on Susan Hill’s 1983 novel, Stephen Mallatratt’s ingenious drama focuses on an elderly man (Kern, in a marvelously detailed performance) haunted by events that occurred years prior. In an effort to make peace with his tortured memories, he hires an actor— played by McLenigan, in the finest performance of his career—to help him bring his past to life on stage. It’d be enormously unfair to give too much away, but suffice it to say, some things are better left in the rearview mirror. The second-longest running play on London’s West End, The Woman in Black has become as much of a tourist attraction as Buckingham Palace. Sure, nobody’s going to mistake downtown Ambler for Piccadilly Circus, but one of the many joys of Christy’s production is that it feels authentically British. Under the tutelage of dialect coach Hazel Bowers, Kern and McLenigan’s accents are pitch perfect, and Kern, who plays a wide array of characters, gives a sharp, mature performance that compliments McLenigan’s more emotional and physical portrayal perfectly. Relying on the skill of the two actors, as well as James Leitner’s atmospheric lighting and Christopher Colucci eerie sound design, Christy succeeds magnificently in igniting the imagination. Only a few simple, well-chosen props bring a country inn, an old train, a horse-drawn carriage, the rain-soaked streets of London and an ancient cemetery to life. As a white fog rolls through the tiny theater, audiences are so fully transported to the cold, wet marshes of rural England that a chill in the air is all that’s missing. And, in the most innovative and theatrical a show as you’re likely to see this season, the action’s not confined to the stage. When the terror spills out into the aisles, there’s nowhere to hide from the strange happenings associated with the mysterious woman in black. Through Sun., Nov. 24. Various times. $27-$34. Act II Playhouse, 56 E. Butler Ave., Ambler. 215.654.0200. act2.org PRIDE AND PREJUDICE The most welcome surprise this season is Bristol Riverside Theatre’s riveting Pride and Prejudice. Adapted by Jon Jory from Jane Austen’s celebrated novel, the stage version doesn’t attempt to match the visual extravagance of the BBC miniseries with its majestic English countryside and spectacular estates. Instead, Jory’s play relies on shrewd editing and an excellent ear for Austen’s language. In director Keith Baker’s production, her sumptuous words are expertly delivered by a large cast that features a number of exceptional performances. Standouts include Michael Halling as the handsome and misunderstood Mr. Darcy and Mary Elizabeth Scallen, who is wonderfully condescending as the grand Lady Catherine De Bourgh.

Bristol Riverside Theatre, 120 Radcliffe St., Bristol. 215.785.0100. brtstage.org STICK FLY The Arden Theatre Company follows up its smashing Parade with a strong staging of Lydia R. Diamond’s Stick Fly, a lighthearted play about serious issues. Set in exclusive Martha’s Vineyard, the action takes place at the expansive, well-appointed home of the LeVay family. Like most of the island’s inhabitants, the LeVays are very, very rich—a circumstance captured splendidly by scenic designer David P. Gordon’s realistic splendor. The LeVays differ from most of the Vineyard’s fabulously wealthy residents in that they’re black, and both race and money figure prominently in Diamond’s intellectually engaging drama. Although the LeVay family we meet is comprised of a father (Jerome Preston Bates) and his adult sons, Flip (the fabulous U.R.) and Kent (Biko Eisen-Martin), Diamond’s interest lies primarily with the women. Mrs. LeVay is suspiciously absent, but present are the young maid, Cheryl (Joniece Abbott-Pratt), Kent’s fiancée, Taylor (the excellent Jessica Frances Dukes) and Flip’s white, uber-liberal girlfriend, Kimber (Julianna Zinkel, in Stick Fly’s best performance). Directed with considerable verve by Walter Dallas, its best moments are when characters are engaged in one of the play’s many explorations of America’s racial inequities and the different perspectives between genders. And although it’s both unusual and refreshing for a play to feature African-American characters that occupy such elevated economic standing, Diamond’s writing is, at times, overly melodramatic and predictable. Nevertheless, under Dallas’ crisp direction, Arden’s Stick Fly is intelligent and entertaining, a combination that’s as almost rare as the people we encounter in it. Through Sun., Dec. 22. Various times. $15-$48. Arden Theatre Company, 40 N. Second St. 215.922.1122. ardentheatre.org

ust last night, hordes of young would-be musicians across America had vivid dreams about sold-out concerts, charttopping sales and mobs of adoring fans. Well, rap sensation Hoodie Allen is living that dream. There are also armies of fresh-faced college graduates, diplomas in hand, eager to make something of themselves in the daunting, often-cruel world of business. Hoodie Allen conquered that goal, too. And it’s pretty noteworthy that one man, at just 25 years-old, should be able to accomplish so much in two seemingly separate worlds. It must have come as quite a shock to Steven Markowitz’s family when, two years ago, he announced that he would be leaving a promising, highly-coveted position at Google to focus on cultivating a career in rap music. But the 2010 graduate from Penn’s ultra-prestigious Wharton School insists that his loved ones were always supportive of his decision. “My family has faith in me,” he tells PW. “I don’t really jump into things without having a plan.” Markowitz comes off as self-assured, and in truth, he’s got reason to be. Self-release a Billboard-charting record and perform alongside the likes of RJD2, Chiddy Bang and Das Racist— not to mention nab over 250,000 Facebook “likes” without a label behind you—and you’d be bursting with confidence, too. His early days listening to Little Brother and Atmosphere and rapping at house parties as a teenager in Plainview, Long Island led to the epiphany that he “wanted to do music as my career,” Markowitz says. And it was around that time that he settled on the Hoodie Allen moniker, a playful allusion to his Jewish, New York upbringing. As a student at Penn, working with then-partner, producer Sam Obey aka Obey City, Markowitz released The Bagels and Beats EP, and a follow-up, Making Waves. After that, Obey bounced, and Markowitz began recording with current beatmaker R.J. Ferguson, who he met in a marketing class. That collaboration resulted in the 2010 EP Pep Rally, yielding the hit single “You Are Not a Robot,” which was the most popular song on The Hype Machine. “Near the end of my time at Penn, that was the first time I ever had a song that really broke through,” Markowitz says. “At least in a blogosphere sort of way.” But despite the promising musical career, when offered a job as an account executive at Google, a company that can receive over 75,000 applicants in a given week, Markowitz felt he had to give the business world an honest try. “It was important for me to finish school,” he explains, “and it was important for me to feel like I had my profession in place outside of music.” But eventually, Markowitz—whose average day started at 7 a.m. at Google and then shifted to music from 6 p.m. until the wee hours of the morning—realized his unsustainable, doubleidentity lifestyle was burning him out. He finally decided to quit his day job in 2011, releasing the mixtape Leap Year as an impromptu ode to his “leap of faith and not knowing exactly how it’s going to pan out.” Perhaps the most impressive facet of Markowitz’s story, aside from his brand of upbeat frat-rap itself, in the same vein as Chiddy Bang, is the fact that he’s both artist and manager. “[With] the economics of [a record label] and the work flow of it, I haven’t found a situation where I’d be better off being with a big company rather than doing things myself,” says Markowitz. “At the end of the day, I have to be the person who works the hardest for myself. Any manager or agent or label has tens or hundreds of people, and if they strike out with one person, it’s okay because

they have other things. I’m not so affected by the amount of work that it would deter me from being independent.” Part of his business, then, is growing a fan base, a skill at which Markowitz almost notoriously excels. For his part, he dismisses the notion that there’s anything particularly praiseworthy about his social media success. “I connect with the fans by putting in the time to connect with the fans,” he shrugs good-naturedly. “It’s not really rocket science. I’ve got 130,000 tweets or something. And a heavy percentage of them are replies to people.” As Markowitz looks to expand his Hoodie Allen brand with recent releases like August’s acoustically-inspired Americoustic EP and Crew Cuts earlier in the year, it appears that those business and marketing classes are paying off—even if not in the way others envisioned. Just a few years ago, he was enjoying Electric Factory shows as a plain ol’ spectator: Today, he’s looking forward to rocking from its stage at Saturday night’s gig. “It’s crazy to play there because I went to so many concerts there when I was at Penn,” Markowitz says. “I’m excited to come back.”  Sat., Nov. 23, 8:30pm. $25.

Nebraska

Two for the Road Dern, Forte save Nebraska from veering off-course.

W

oody Grant’s sure he’s won a million dollars. His family knows he hasn’t. Nebraska essentially never strays far from that empty ticket. Even the obligatory road trip, complete with reluctant family reunions, rarely wavers from Woody’s need to claim that prize at last. But despite the sense of forward motion, Nebraska revels in stagnation. People are immutable; relationships fixed points. (Evocative—and honest—is the shot of long-estranged family members hypnotized by TV, having exhausted their hellos and left with nothing else to say.) Director Alexander Payne, who’s lingered on suburbia’s petty purgatories before in Election, opted to film in black and white, framing this world as quietly hopeless, its landscapes often expansive but never quite alive. That Nebraska even registers as a comedy under these expectations is a credit to its leads. Bruce Dern has made a career of unsympathetically-insightful performances and won Best Actor at Cannes for his portrayal of Woody, an aging alcoholic driven to reach Nebraska but otherwise half-absent from life, infuriating and pitiable by turns. Will Forte’s understated David faces this fool’s errand more kindly than his dad deserves, giving heart to stubborn hopes that might otherwise feel cruel. Woody dreams of air compressors; David builds the journey. Their dynamic buoys the film’s slower moments, but occasionally gets bogged down in satire that swings at easy targets. With the imaginary milliondollar payday as the crux of all their relationships and revelations, the supporting cast—with the exception of June Squibb as Woody’s sexually-nostalgic wife and Angela McEwan, the “girl who got away”— can come across like a stock collection of small-town dupes, tyrants and down-and-outs. Still, Nebraska can come close to home and even manages some earnest moments; the rapport of its leads keeps the movie from sinking under its weighty premise. While this film may not be Payne’s sharpest, it’s a road trip that nearly makes it where it’s going. (Genevieve Valentine)

It Feels Like the First Time Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence and a stellar supporting cast deliver an impressive, beautifully-shot sequel to The Hunger Games. By Genevieve Valentine // feedback@philadelphiaweekly.com

T

his summer, in preparation for Catching Fire, the sequel to the 2012 blockbuster The Hunger Games, CoverGirl revealed a limited-edition Capitol Couture tie-in line containing themed looks for each of Panem’s 12 Districts, ready-made palettes to recreate the makeup of one’s favorite tribute in the Hunger Games. Any lingering questions about how the film franchise has blurred the line between portraying a spectacle and buying into it? This baby may have just answered them. It’s an interesting conundrum. More important than any box office expectations or YA-movie preconceptions, the Hunger Games films have to contend with source material that explicitly reviles celebrity culture and celebratory excess in the face of callousness. The first film introduced the dystopian Panem and the yearly gladiatorial games, but Catching Fire centers on a government crackdown against a tide of public support so strong, it threatens to become all-out war—meaning the spectacle is under twice the scrutiny, both from its characters and its viewers. Like in most sequels, Catching Fire’s world is wider, the cast larger, the budget bigger, the stakes higher. In the aftermath of the 74th Annual Hunger Games, Katniss is living in Victor’s Village alongside mentor Haymitch (Woody Harrelson) and co-victor Peeta (Josh Hutcherson), with whom she’s continued a sham relationship for the Capitol cameras. But her resistance in the arena made her a figurehead of rebellion, and their awkward-lovebird Victory Tour is peppered with incidents. President Snow (Donald Sutherland), determined to silence dissent, sets up a very special Quarter Quell Games that, surely only by coincidence, pulls from former victors. Peeta and Katniss must go back in the ring, where—again, surely only by coincidence—they’ll likely be killed. Jennifer Lawrence has already proved an able anchor of the material as Katniss; the first film charted her journey from hardscrabble underdog to unwilling symbol and primary political target. In Catching Fire, she presents a young woman gone half-numb with fear, her cynicism a coat of ice over her intelligence and anger. Katniss wants nothing more, at first, than to disappear from the public eye; her resistance to the revolution is at first on par with her dislike of her role for the Capitol, and the slow shift in her feelings is neatly laid out in every sidelong stare. She’s matched in this outing by Peeta, who was charming in The Hunger Games but has more to chew on now, his political savvy making him a contender for the rebellion’s figurehead and his bursts of pride giving depth to his hopeless love for Katniss. Their relationship, thanks largely to the actors’ chemistry, is interesting on every front except the romantic. They’re well-supported here by exceptional casting. Philip Seymour Hoffman, as head gamemaker, and Jeffrey Wright and Amanda Plummer, as for-

mer victors, handily elevate their material. Sam Claflin shifts expectations and brings grinning menace to boytoy Games champion Finnick. Elizabeth Banks, as Capitol delegate Effie Trinket, has perhaps the most to do as the mirror through which we see the increasing cruelty of the Capitol. Unfortunately, not everyone rises to the occasion. Liam Hemsworth is deeply unmemorable, and, as the vicious Johanna Mason, Jena Malone only manages petulance. (That’s unfortunate, as she’s supposed to decry the Capitol’s underhanded Quell and reflect quite uneasy realities.) Despite occasional woozy overuse of hand-held cameras in the first movie, Hunger Games director Gary Ross smartly created an experience akin to a first-person shooter video game with the shooter constantly on the verge of panic. Katniss was overwhelmed by the spectacle of the Capitol and the violence of the Games. The violence—always an issue when the characters are so young and the brutality so explicit—was also carefully constructed. Catching Fire, directed by Francis Lawrence, has time for none of it. In fairness, the film is already balancing a pound of plot in a 12-ounce jug, and the audience, it’s presumed, understands the formula without lingering on the exhibitionism of the group training room. But here, the arena becomes just another big-budget action set with a mad scientist at the helm. For a film that introduces Katniss having a PTSD flashback to her kill in the Games, it still shows her knocking arrows through her opponents with blasé precision. Had prolonged exposure to the Games changed her, it would be an interesting benchmark, but that doesn’t seem to be the case; in fact, it’s one of many things brought up and discarded in the race to the cliffhanger finish. It’s not the goal of these films to make movies about forced child murder through economic exploitation feel fun, but it absolutely is entertainment, and plenty of it is visually arresting. How much Catching Fire manages to keep its distance from the Capitol is debatable, but it’s well-enough told. Lady Lawrence provides an absorbing lead in Katniss, whose mounting anger carries the film through the dizzying celebrity and manslaughter circus to the final, catalytic burst of helpless rage against the Capitol that signals the birth of the Mockingjay. In Catching Fire, you (mostly) get the revolution you deserve. 

On Monday, the Pennsylvania state House failed to pass a long-debated and anticipated $2.3 billion transportation funding bill which would have: used state funds to repair the commonwealth’s crumbling roads and bridges; injected millions of dollars into state mass transit funding for new technologies and train cars; and, restructured PennDOT to take cycling and walking into account. The legislation, which failed twice despite bipartisan coalition support, will potentially have an enormous impact on the way Philadelphians and our suburban neighbors get to work. “We’re extremely disappointed with the failure of the bill,” says SEPTA General Manager Joe Casey. “There’s still time, and I’m still in Harrisburg, and we’re still fighting.” Opposition to the bill largely arose from how lawmakers planned to pay for it. Supported by Gov. Corbett, business leaders, unions, and former Gov. Ed Rendell, it would have uncapped the oil-franchise tax, a fact which nay-sayers claimed could raise prices at the gas pump by as much as 28 cents a gallon. Some have argued that those in rural parts of the state shouldn’t have to pay for Southeastern Pennsylvania’s and Pittsburgh’s mass transit, as well. “I can tell you the Southeast delegation was extremely supportive of the bill and I suspect they will continue to be supportive of the transportation bill,” adds Casey. “This issue is just too important; it’s too important to the southeast region and it’s too important to the commonwealth of Pennsylvania.” Philadelphia is the largest economic hub in the state, and the southeast region makes up about 40 percent of the commonwealth’s economic activity. SEPTA introduced a “doomsday budget” a couple months back, which showed what their lines may look like without the necessary funds: Nine of 13 regional rail lines would be cut off completely, trolley lines would morph into bus routes, and new trains would be less likely to make an appearance on the rails. Shutting down twothirds of the rail lines might find white collar commuters driving to the city or, worse, finding work outside Philly, too. When asked about the so-called “doomsday budget,” Casey notes: “That is our future” if the state House fails to get its own house in order. The Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia had also been pushing hard for the bill. It noted on its blog Monday that the lack of a proper funding bill could be metaphorically represented by the famous photo of the Montparnasse derailment. The iconic photo depicts the scene where a steam engine in Paris, France, derailed and drove straight through the Gare Montparnasse terminal, crashing a story below onto the street and killing one person. “There’s a loss of funds for biking and walking projects, but it’s worse than that because PennDOT now has to spend all their time and energy on making sure bridges aren’t falling down, so there’s no thinking about other forms of transportation,” says Alex Doty, executive director of the Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia. Doty notes that failing to amass transportation funds is bad news for everyone: Transit riders lose their commute, bicyclists don’t get the new lanes they may want or need, Philly becomes more car-dependent, and, for those who are already driving too much as is, the roads become even more congested. While not touting any specific cycling or walking project the bill would have helped fund, he notes the Coalition was excited for PennDOT to acknowledge, for the first time ever, bicycling and walking as existing. Now, with the bill’s failure in mind, not so much. “It’s bad news for economic development, it’s bad news for keeping students in the city of Philadelphia, it’s bad news for getting new com-

panies to the state,” he adds. “It’s just a remarkable failure to invest in the basic things that government is supposed to do.” Meanwhile, there was a blip on the Internet this week when Pennsylvanians found out new medical marijuana legislation is about to be proposed. What’s more, the bill, sponsored by state senators Daylin Leach (D-Montgomery) and Mike Folmer (R-Lebanon), marks the first time in recent years a pro-pot bill in Harrisburg has been introduced with bipartisan support. The Compassionate Use of Medical Cannabis Act, as it’s called, would legalize cannabidiol, or CBD, a compound found in weed that’s been used to successfully treat patients suffering from seizures and patients going through chemotherapy. It does not provide the giggly high often associated with smoking marijuana. “Who are we to deny a better quality of life to children suffering from hundreds of seizures a day?” asked Sen. Folmer during a press conference on Monday. “Who are we to deny less pain to a cancer patient made terribly ill from chemotherapy treatments? There are other highly addictive drugs prescribed to help with pain and suffering, and I believe the use of medical cannabis is another option, a good option.” This new push for what Leach has called “the achievable” is cool, but don’t let the upfront bipartisanship fool you. Once politics-as-usual gets involved, and it will, it’s going to be hard to form a larger bipartisan coalition. Part of the reason for that lies in the specific political tendencies of the two senators in this duo. Leach is a Democrat and Folmer is a Republican; that’s great, but as far as their respective pet issues go, they’re basically two of a kind. Both are at the far ends of their parties—Leach an unabashed liberal, Folmer essentially a libertarian—and both regularly support bills because they think the legislation is simply the right thing to do, rather than because those bills are likely to get passed. So issues like medical marijuana, simultaneously progressive and civil-libertarian, are where the far right and far left naturally come together. I’ve written and interviewed both senators for stories in the past. When I met Folmer, it was for a story about Pennsylvania’s third-party system: Folmer is trying to change the way elections are conducted in Pennsylvania to allow more competition and make it harder to kick independent candidates off the ballot. Leach, meanwhile, regularly introduces the most liberal pieces of legislation in the Senate each year, including recreational marijuana bills, euthanasia legislation and GMO labeling. In both senators’ cases, they’re putting forth legislation that, for the most part, neither their Democrat nor Republican peers in the capital want to be a part of. Take note: I’m talking about elected Democrats and Republicans, not Democrats and Republicans like you and me. Many of these social issues would be very much up for debate if brought to the public for a vote—but that’s not the way things work. In reality, it’s hard to form a coalition around what longstanding social tradition considers to be controversial legislation. That’s especially true in the do-nothing Pennsylvania legislature, where change is always scary and kids are always getting chased from front lawns with brooms. Leach and Folmer should both be commended for regularly thinking outside the box; it would be great if they weren’t out there by themselves. 

SAVAGE LOVE By Dan Savage // mail@savagelove.net I’m a heterosexual guy in my early 20s. I’ve been dating my girlfriend for about six months. The problem: I have a high sex drive in comparison to hers. I want to be intimate on a weekly basis, and she’s told me that she’s more of a onceevery-three-weeks-or-so person. I’m trying not to put pressure on her—she’s a virgin (no penetration), and the thought of the pain of that first time scares her a bit. That said, physical intimacy with her—developing that bond, even without intercourse—is important to me and a key part of what I believe is a healthy relationship. I do my best to be understanding, but I’m not sure how to bridge this gap. Love Is Building Intimacy During Outset

Your boyfriend can’t stare at a neck wound he can’t see. So until you’ve fully recovered, B, turn off the

Cuckolding realities are a lot more challenging than cuckolding fantasies—emotionally and logistically. So you’re right to be nervous, YARD. But relationship longevity doesn’t guarantee cuckolding success. Good communication, mutual desire (so fucking important with this fantasy!), and a commitment to take things slowly-bordering-on-glacially are far better predictors of success. And if you take it slow—if you limit your cuckolding play to dirty talk for 10 months at least—you’ll have more of that experience/trust/security stuff to fall back on if and when you find the right bull/stud/lover. I’m a 24-year-old lesbian, and I have been with my girlfriend for almost three years. We have both been GGG about things to do with each other in the bedroom, and I’m generally happy with our sex life. Since I am emailing you, though, there is a “but.” She is bi and has always wanted to have a threesome with a guy and another girl. I am all for that in theory, but I have a hard time emotionally. I have anxiety. I’m in therapy and on medication, and even still, it’s really difficult for me to wrap my head around sex with new people. I would spend the entire time silently freaking out. I am not sure how I feel about her getting fucked by someone else, even if she’s fucking me at the same time. I really want to do this for her, but I don’t want it to go poorly because of my issues. Do you have any advice for navigating something like this that your partner really wants but you don’t? For how to get game not just in letter but in spirit? Having Anxiety Raises Difficulties I’m going to give you the same answer I gave YARD: Talk about it, fantasize about it, be open to it, but take it glacially. Guys who are interested in sexing two women aren’t that difficult to find, HARD, so trust that the right guy—one who makes you comfortable, one who is unthreatening—will come into your lives at some point. If you’re worried about how you might react to watching your girlfriend have sex with that special someone else, she shouldn’t have intercourse with that special someone else the first time you get together. Make out, roll around, engage in a little mutual masturbation. If that feels good—if it doesn’t make you anxious or freak you out—make a plan to get together again. 

Last month at a house party, my boyfriend accidentally burned my chin, neck and cleavage during a clumsily executed volcano shot. Some doctor appointments, burn creams, bandages and awkward scabbing later, I’m healing nicely. My problem is our sex life has become much more complicated. Before the accident, we were having sex only every week or so. But now he stares sadly at my neck wound every time he looks at me. It’s very hard to feel sexy when you’re constantly looked at with pity, regret and concern, and the stress of being sexually frustrated is fueling other stresses. I just want a way out of this sad circle we’ve found ourselves in. Burned

My boyfriend and I have been dating for a little over 10 months. We have a strong emotional bond and are always communicative and honest. We have an amazing and adventurous sex life, and we have been fantasizing about cuckolding for about two months. We are both extremely turned on by the idea, but I have reservations about doing this in such a young relationship. Unlike married couples who have years to lay an emotional foundation, my boyfriend and I have less to fall back on. I am excited by the idea of this, but I am scared I will end up feeling used. I am also afraid he will not be able to handle the reality of the humiliation. It turns him on to talk about it, but he has never done this. What happens if we are emotionally wrecked afterward?

While it’s great that you’re understanding of your girlfriend’s sensitivities, LIBIDO, and while it’s commendable that you view nonpenetrative sex as fulfilling, you’re running the risk of “understanding” her into a relationship that makes you both unhappy. Because someone who wants sex multiple times per week will eventually be made miserable by someone who wants sex far less than once a month (which is what the “or so” at the end of “once-everythree-weeks-or-so” means) and vice versa—being with you will make your girlfriend miserable in the long run, too. I get emails daily from miserable people on both side of this divide, LIBIDO: from people with high libidos who married lows and from people with low libidos who married highs. The highs are miserable because years of sexual rejection have shredded their sexual self-esteem, or they feel like monsters after years of being “indulged” with going-throughthe-motions sex by barely willing and clearly miserable partners. The lows are miserable because going through the motions makes them miserable or they’re sick of constantly being pestered for sex and made to feel inadequate or broken when they pass. You’re young and straight, LIBIDO, and the culture tells the young and the straight that they must be monogamous (because sex is so important) and that they shouldn’t take sexual compatibility into consideration when picking a partner (because sex is so unimportant). Other shit matters, too, of course—stuff like emotional compatibility, similar life goals, being on the same page about kids, etc. But basic sexual compatibility matters, too, and its absence will eventually undermine everything else. By which I mean to say, LIBIDO: You’ve been dating this girl long enough to know that you’re not a match—you’re not sexually compatible—and that’s reason enough to end this relationship.

lights or blindfold him or lace him into a leather hood—or all three—and have sex the way the good lord intended us to, i.e., in the dark with our pitiful/ regretful/hooded boyfriends. And no more flaming stunt drinks, ferfucksake!
