Responding to our primary coverage

I am appreciative of CITY’s continued coverage of local elections. I am troubled, however, that CITY printed worries from anonymous legislators that I would not be a “team player.” I was not called for a response to these allegations. The idea that a woman who holds government accountable and questions powerful people can’t work with others is a tired trope. I’m a lifelong Democrat who is committed to one team — the one belonging to citizens. Once elected, I look forward to working

with my fellow legislators. RACHEL BARNHART

Rachel Barnhart is a Democratic candidate for the County Legislature’s 21st District seat.

I appreciate that you are covering the Monroe County Legislature races - I feel like they are often overlooked. However, in the “Primary Day” piece by CITY reporters Jeremy Moule and Tim Louis Macaluso, to those familiar with the 21st District race, your summary of events and characterization of the candidates are misleading. Frankly, it seems revisionist in favor of the partydesignated candidate. While you didn’t come right out and use the word “endorse,” your framing of the two candidates in the 21st District makes it clear you have a preference. Victor Sanchez is described as working with other Democrats to accomplish a mutual agenda. To cement that image, you note that party bigwigs have

appeared with him, giving tacit approval of his campaign. Meanwhile, you note that folks speaking “privately” have said that Rachel Barnhart isn’t a team player. Barnhart, it should be noted, was not given a chance to respond to that allegation, which seems unfair to me. It is an allegation she has fought in every race as it continues to be repeated by media sources like yours with no evidence. It should also be noted that your summation of the events leading to Sanchez’s designation lack some important details. I suggest reading former Monroe County Democratic Committee party chair Dave Garretson’s June 9 Facebook post, which reads in part: “Which brings us to 2019, when the leader of the LD 21 Democratic Committee asked Rachel to run as their candidate for County Legislature. Which immediately prompted displeasure

from Rachel’s former primary opponents. That would be the Mayor and Assembly member Harry Bronson. Who embarked on a search to find somebody better, a candidate whose primary qualification would be notbeing-Rachel. They found their not-Rachel. His name is Victor Sanchez. The ins and outs of what happened after that — a little too much for this space. It was an unfortunate combination of procedural errors, back room armtwisting, and fudging the rules — resulting in Victor being named as the party’s designated candidate, and Rachel being the challenger.” In other words, Rachel was offered the designation and then it was taken back because of the pettiness of local Democratic politicians. And to be clear — it was rescinded in a “process” that broke their own rules. BENJAMIN KIERAN

URBAN JOURNAL | BY MARY ANNA TOWLER

There’s no one ‘fix’ for the RCSD’s problems Well, state legislators will wrap up their session this week and head home, having done nothing about the Rochester school district. And so we’ll just keep yelling at each other. And trying to make failed policies work. A big issue, I think: Too many people believe there’s a simple solution to the district’s problems. All we need to do is elect the right school board members or hire the right superintendent or get rid of the president of the teachers union. But the district’s problem isn’t just one of low test scores or low graduation rates or racism or charter schools or special education failures or high administrator turnover or poor training or lax accountability. It’s all of them. All of them. Each has its own cause. Each needs its own reform. No superintendent and no school board can handle all this. It’s not that we haven’t tried to fix some of the problems. Successive school boards and superintendents have tried, and they’ve made a bit of progress. The graduation rate has indeed been going up. But overall, the problems in the district have grown more serious. And the community’s trust in the district – and its respect for the district – have declined. That’s had a terrible impact on both the district and the city. Some of the district’s problems aren’t complicated and ought to be fixed quickly. It’s absurd, for instance, that the district has struggled to get classroom attendance taken correctly. Harder to fix: The school board’s squabbling and interference. This is destructive, and it may very well get worse. For this reason alone, a temporary state takeover could be helpful. But some of the district’s problems may be too hard to solve without some dramatic reforms and initiatives. We need to talk about that. For instance: City Council member Malik Evans – a former school board president himself – says he thinks the district may be too big, and its problems too complicated, to solve under the present structure. Evans suggests that we may need to break the district up into smaller units. Shouldn’t we talk about that? The staff at East High School has made progress turning that school around. How much is due to the University of Rochester’s involvement? How much to

Too many people believe there’s a simple solution for the RCSD’s problems: elect the right school board members, hire the right superintendent…. East’s ability to hire its own teachers? How much to individual programs at the school? To additional services and expenses? Shouldn’t we be assessing that? School 17 is getting praise for its own turnaround. How much of that is due to leadership? To the wrap-around services? To other factors? And then there’s the district’s high rate of concentrated poverty. Concentrated poverty, with its attendant health and social issues, has taken a terrible toll on the children of Rochester. This community, this state, and this country are not willing to do what it takes – spend what it takes – to address poverty. And until we are, the Rochester school district will struggle to teach its children. Mayor Warren’s plan to have the state take over the district for several years makes sense. That would give us a chance to fix the obviously fixable problems and talk about what we have to do about the more difficult problems. But there’ll be no state takeover. No period of assessment and search for reforms. We’ll hand off the problems to a new superintendent and the school board. And a year or two from now we’ll be yelling at them. Disgraceful, folks. Just disgraceful.

REFUGEES | BY TIM LOUIS MACALUSO

Giving deaf refugees a voice

The goal is to help deaf refugees develop skills needed to become independeent, says Robert Tawney. PHOTO BY JACOB WALSH

FAIR TRADE on JAZZ STREET!

The number of deaf refugees in Rochester is small, but the problems they face can be huge without proper support. Deaf Refugee Advocacy of Rochester, a non-profit agency, helps service providers work more effectively with this vulnerable group of people. DRA serves about 35 deaf refugees at this time, most of whom have come from Bhutan, says, Robert Tawney, the agency’s codirector. All refugees face hardships, but deaf refugees face an additional obstacle because they often don’t have a language, he says. Some developed countries have their own sign language, but underdeveloped countries typically don’t. “They usually learn to point to things and make gestures,” Tawney says. Deaf refugees tend to come to the US with their parents or siblings who are also trying to make a difficult transition, Tawney says. Their parents want to help them become independent and live on their own, he says. “It’s a difficult situation for the whole family,” he says.

Tawney’s group is holding “Reach Out! Supporting Deaf Refugees,” a two-day conference, from Friday, June 20, through Saturday, June 22, at the National Technical Institute for the Deaf at Rochester Institute of Technology. The conference will feature keynote speakers Lewis Lummer and Cynthia Plue. Both are deaf educators and they’ll talk about creating a safe haven for deaf refugees and supporting them in their resettlement needs. The workshops will address a wide range of topics, such as finding the right schools and acquiring life and language skills. More information on the conference is available at reachoutdra.org.

Assembly member Harry Bronson says his proposed Rochester City School District Empowerment Act is meant to get Rochester’s leaders talking about immediate actions they can take to improve the district. It draws heavily on recommendations in Distinguished Educator Jaime Aquino’s report on the RCSD.

EDUCATION | BY JEREMY MOULE

Bronson releases RCSD improvement bill As Mayor Lovely Warren has continued her push for a state takeover of Rochester City Schools, State Assembly member Harry Bronson has dug in, saying he opposes removing the elected school board. And he’s mentioned that he’s preparing legislation to improve student outcomes and making the district function better. Bronson has now released the language of the Rochester City School District Empowerment Act, a bill he says is meant to get Rochester’s leaders talking about immediate actions they can take to improve the district. Warren wants state legislators to pass a law that would remove the Rochester school board and put the state in charge of operating the district for the next five years. She’s asked City Council to put the issue on the ballot in November; Council will vote on that request next month. The referendum wouldn’t require lawmakers to act, but if the vote goes in Warren’s favor it would put pressure on them to do so. Bronson says his bill is “a measure that we can do today. We can pass this and we can put these things in place and we don’t have to wait until January.” And his bill wouldn’t interfere with any governance change, should one happen in 2020, he says.

But the Assembly and Senate would have to move fast for Bronson’s bill to pass this session, which ends June 19. The Rochester City School District Empowerment Act targets a few areas of district operations, and Bronson ties them back to Distinguished Educator Jaime Aquino’s report on the district. Aquino recommended that the district develop improvement plans for everything from communications to special education. Though the board has been working on such plans, Bronson’s legislation would require it and the superintendent to develop a Strategic Academic Improvement Plan within 60 days of its passing. Bronson’s legislation would require the district to work with the State Education Department commissioner to convert low-performing schools in need of improvement to community schools. Community schools would increase the involvement of neighbors, parents, nonprofits, social services, and higher education institutions in the district, Bronson said. That’s consistent with a major recommendation in Aquino’s report, he says. The bill would also establish a Children’s Advisory Council, which would provide guidance to the

superintendent. The seven members of the council would be appointed by the district’s school-based planning executive committee and would include — but not be limited to — representatives of community groups; experts in child development, mental health, trauma informed learning, English language learners, students with disabilities, and culturally responsive teaching, according to the bill’s language. That would help the district make policies that are beneficial to students, Bronson said. The bill also: • Seeks to better define the roles of both city school board members and the superintendent; • Requires school board members to complete 12 hours of training on subjects including ethics, public relations, cultural sensitivity and responsiveness, dispute resolution, and governance; • Establishes an arbitrator to help settle disputes between individual board members or between the superintendent or board members. Bronson has said he’s been working with education experts, union officials, and community leaders on the legislation. In a statement, Warren said Bronson’s bill was “no solution at all.”

“It’s time to give parents the voice they deserve in their child’s education,” Warren said. “And, that is through the power of the vote.” County Executive Cheryl Dinolfo sent out a statement offering her “full support” for Warren’s proposed referendum. “What families in the City School District need is real, meaningful education reform, not more watered-down solutions from the same politicians who have been part of the problem,” Dinolfo said.

RELIGION | BY TIM LOUIS MACALUSO

Islamic Center president calls for unity The Dome Arena, that round white buttonlooking building off East Henrietta Road that seats more than 4,000 people, was nearly filled to capacity by 9 a.m. on Tuesday, June 4. Muslims from all over the Rochester region gathered there to celebrate Eid alFitr. The lively ceremony marks the end of Ramadan, a month of fasting and prayer observed by Muslims worldwide. Long sheets of white cloth formed rows of stripes across the arena’s floor where worshipers knelt in prayer. Muslims remove their shoes during prayers and dozens of them were placed neatly at the end of some rows. Many of the men and women wore their traditional finery. The men and boys in thobes — long flowing shirts that covered their legs — filled more than half of the room, while women and girls wearing abaya dresses and hijabs occupied the back. The arena was so crowded that hundreds of people flowed outside to the sidewalks and grassy areas, many taking family photos and selfies. There was also plenty of security, with nearly a dozen New York State Troopers stationed around the site. Security is a steady presence at the Islamic Center of Rochester, too. “I wouldn’t say Muslims live in total fear, but there’s some level of fear,” says Tabassam Javed, the Islamic Center’s new president. As the shock of the massacre at two New Zealand mosques spread this past March, it left a chilling effect on Muslim communities throughout the United States, including Rochester, Javed says. That’s partly because the US, unlike New Zealand, has a history of extremism and violence, he says. Javed had only been elected to the post several months before the killings. In a recent interview with CITY, he said one of his earliest official duties was speaking out against the violence with several local faith leaders to show solidarity with the people of New Zealand. “I was amazed at the outpouring of concern in this community from people of all faiths,” he said. Javed, who is a retired psychologist, says

that long before becoming president, he devoted much of his time to dispelling misunderstandings about Islam. He worked on cultivating positive relations between Rochester’s Muslim communities and people of different faiths.

But the terrorist attacks in New Zealand reinforced the urgency of addressing antiMuslim sentiment through outreach to all communities, Javed says. And he’s made building acceptance and trust between the Muslim community and people from other religions one of his highest priorities as president of the Islamic Center. After the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center in 2001, anti-Muslim sentiment in the US rose sharply, he says. It gradually faded over the three or four years that followed, he

says, but it didn’t disappear. It just wasn’t as overt, he says. Donald Trump’s presidential campaign changed everything, Javed says. Trump’s mix of Islamophobia and antiimmigrant rhetoric reignited fear in the Muslim community, while also feeding misconceptions about Musilms and Islam, Javed says. As president, Trump has continued to pump out nationalistic messages, including his calls for a “Muslim ban” policy, which prohibits

nationals from five Muslim-majority countries from entering the US. “The last three years have been very rough for Muslims,” Javed says. The White House is arguably one of the biggest bully pulpits in the world and Trump’s pattern of using provocative language has helped to shape a negative image of Muslims, he says. Trump has stoked fear and anxiety toward Muslims, which appeals to White Nationalists, Javed says.


“There are some people who hear his message and, it’s almost like somebody is calling upon them to act,” he says. But the atmosphere of fear and hate is misplaced because Islam stresses peace and concern for all humanity, Javed says. There are many similarities between Islam, Christianity, and Judaism, he says. “They are sister faiths,” Javed says. The Quran, for instance, references many of the same religious figures found in Christianity. Javed often joins with Muhammad Shafiq,

professor of religious studies at Nazareth College, on interfaith activities to help expose young people from different backgrounds to one another. Bringing high schoolers of different faiths together so they can meet Muslim adults and children helps them to see how much they share in common. Bringing people together, sharing personal experiences, and inviting non-Muslims the Center to pray and meditate is the cornerstone of Javed’s outreach. “All of a sudden, all this anti-Muslim nonsense goes away and gets taken out of the equation,” Javed says. There are people who probably never knew that they had a Muslim co-worker or neighbor, someone they could have gotten to know over coffee or tea, Javed says. Javed was born in Lahore, Pakistan, the country’s second largest city, and immigrated to the US when he was a young man. The questions he’s asked most often are who are Muslims and where are they? “I tell them we are everywhere,” he says. “It’s a growing community.” The Muslim population in the US grew from about 2.5 million in the early 1980’s to about 6 million today. There are about 25,000 Muslims here in the Rochester area, out of which the largest group is Turkish Muslims, Javed says. “There are eight mosques in Rochester, two of them serving the Turkish community. They arrived after World War II when Hickey Freeman was recruiting tailors to make suits.” The second wave of Muslim immigrants came from Pakistan in the 1970’s, he says. Rochester’s big three employers of that time — Kodak, Bausch and Lomb, and Xerox — needed chemists, engineers, and researchers, he says. Rochester also saw a large number of Lebanese immigrants during this time, he says. The growth of the region’s Muslim community fueled the demand for the

Islamic Center, Javed says. The 8,000 squarefoot building on Westfall Road includes a mosque, as well as Westfall Academy, a PreK-to-6th grade elementary school. “On Friday prayers, we have up to 1,000 people go through the Islamic Center,” Javed says. Muslims from as many as 30 different countries speaking almost as many languages participate in the Center’s activities. More recently, Muslim refugees from Somalia, Bangladesh, Sudan, Iraq, Syria, Egypt, and Afghanistan have been settling in Rochester, Javed says. Much of this wave is the result of regional wars and political oppression, he says. US interventions in countries such as Iraq and Afghanistan have sometimes been successful, but some have drawn the US into untenable positions, he says. Javed is worried that rising tensions with Iran could escalate into a major war. “I’m concerned because it could have a spillover,” he says. US involvement in Afghanistan and Iraq should make it clear to the American public that launching clean surgical military operations and then extracting ourselves out of them is not plausible, he says. The world is too intertwined, he says.

The regional conflicts driving Muslim

refugees out of their homelands have made Javed especially sensitive to immigrant communities and the hardships they face once they’re in the US. They feel the need to overcompensate at work and in social settings, he says, but there is also what he calls “that big drive of inclusivity.” “They want to maintain their identity and yet be assimilated,” Javed says. “They don’t want a makeover.” Even Muslim parents who are not refugees frequently tell him that they want their children to be every bit as American as children that are born here. But that’s also one of their biggest concerns. “Our kids feel tremendous pressure in terms of wanting to act and behave like the majority,” he says. But their parents don’t want them to dilute their cultural identity or turn away from their faith, he says. Javed says he struggled with similar concerns raising his own sons in Victor. He told them that they didn’t need to recreate themselves to be like other American teens. “I made it a point every single day, I told them that your difference is your attribute,” Javed says. “Your identity is already there.”

This year is proving to be an active election year for Monroe County Democrats, not only for November’s general election, in which they hope to take control of the county executive’s office, but also for the June 25 Democratic Primary. Thanks to a change in state law, the primary is three months earlier than usual, but that doesn’t seem to have suppressed the number of candidates. There are challenges to many of the party’s designations. That’s the case for City Court, where voters will elect two judges. In the June 25 primary, four Rochester attorneys – Barbara Farrell, Aaron Frazier, Nicole Morris, and Van Henri White – are challenging the Democrats’ designated candidates, Melissa Barrett and Mark Muoio.

Blossom is popping on Thursdays Chick’N Out POP-UP @ BLOSSOM ROAD PUB, 196 NORTH WINTON ROAD 347-647-7116; CHICKNOUTROC.COM THURSDAY, 5 TO 10 P.M. [ REVIEW ] BY CHRIS THOMPSON

For many people, home always seems to call you back at some point, and like many prodigal sons, SOTA grad Adam Bierton packed up and moved back to Rochester from Brooklyn last year. While enjoying the quieter life of Rochester, he missed some of the easy access to good food that he enjoyed in the borough. And for this reason, Bierton had an idea stewing (or in this case, deep frying) for a while. He spent a year fine-tuning a family recipe that’s close to his heart, and finally he set out to found Chick’N Out, a fried chicken spot with hometown roots, but with a little BK soul. When I got this assignment, I wanted to know where Chick’N Out was. I couldn’t find an address. Is it a food truck? A shack?

All I could find at the time was an Instagram account (@chicknoutroc). Did my editor just prank me? As it turns out, Chick’N Out is a pop-up spot; they set up shop in one place and take over the kitchen for a night. The old Daisy Dukes on Empire Boulevard used to have weekly pop-ups from different chefs, so I’m familiar with the concept. Bierton says he chose a pop-up format partially because he was eager to get his business going. He was wary about going the food truck route, given the seasonal constraints. Finding and renovating a brick-and-mortar space is always a lot of work and would delay his goal even farther. Fortunately, his brother Marcus Lenear co-owns The Blossom Road Pub, and he offered Adam the opportunity to take over the kitchen on Thursday nights for Chick’N Out. At this time, to enjoy Chick’N Out, you have to go to Blossom Road Pub on Thursdays, 5-10 p.m. (but more accurately, it’s from 5 p.m. until they run out of food).

Bierton assured me during a pre-visit phone interview that he ordered a more tenders and chicken this week, as he ran out sooner than he expected the previous week. Nevertheless, he advised that I try getting there early. I decided that going immediately after work would be a wise choice, since I would be hungry, and my business clothes make me look more like a serious purveyor of food news than my usual post-work attire of a faded Star Wars t-shirt and whatever jeans look least dirty.

Parking was tricky, even at 5:45 p.m. — the pub’s lot as well as the neighboring businesses’ lots were full — so I wound up having to loop around and park across the street in front of the CVS. As I exited the car, I could smell the aroma of the food from all the way across the street. I could almost see the scent. I felt like I could use my nose to hook to the scent and let it convey me across the street like in old Warner Brothers cartoons. The evening Winton Road traffic reminded me that I should just hit the button at the crosswalk and wait for the green like everyone else. Inside the pub was standing roomonly, and people were still filing in. Folks were in every corner of the bar and dining areas, either waiting for their meal or chowing down like they’d discovered the meaning of life in the food. Chick’N Out portions are a decent size for the price. I ordered a spicy Small Dark (leg and thigh, $10), collard greens ($2), and the cucumber onion salad ($2). I promised my editor that I would take a few shots of the food so that she would know what to look forward to, but I inhaled that leg and thigh without thinking twice. Is it mean or just unprofessional to send to your boss a picture of a completely cleaned-off set of animal bones? I have not had a piece of fried chicken as juicy since the last time I had family dinner with my cousins down in Baltimore. Conversely, go to any big name fried chicken chain, and the meal will be okay, but the chicken will be dry. If it’s juicy, it’s also a little bloody. Chick’N Out chicken is so tender it nearly falls off the bone. It is as if the breading is just a light casing to keep the meat in one place. Speaking of the breading, Bierton could just sell that on wafers and make a killing. The collard greens were a nice, mild complement to the spiciness of the chicken. One warning: As good as they are, the greens are cooked with some bacon, so not kosher or halal. The cucumber onion salad was a nice, tangy finish to the meal. Bierton says he plans to bring Chick’N Out to other venues in the future and possibly go mobile with a trailer or portable shack. But for now, being only seven weeks in at the current venue, and as popular as it is already, I would suggest getting there as close to 5 p.m. as possible. After all, the early bird gets the…bird. I’m bad at idioms. Just get the chicken. rochestercitynewspaper.com

become a summer mainstay. Isbell and his backing band, the 400 Unit, consistently deliver strong performances anchored by songwriting that oscillates between country and rock. While Isbell’s musical identity is planted in the Americana camp, his lyrics are less pigeonholed, often gravitating toward a more progressive message than the style might suggest. Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit are touring in support of its latest album, “Live from the Ryman,” which pulls songs from a string of sold-out dates at the legendary Nashville auditorium. Father John Misty and Jade Bird will also perform.

‘Camp’ Self-released borger.fun

Bob White & Company. Greenhouse Café, 2271 E. Main St. 270-8603. 11 a.m.

Complete with a meme-based moniker, Borger uses serious music to discuss not-so-serious subjects. Formed by local singer-songwriter Mackenzie Harris, the local quartet provides an irresistibly dark spectacle in its debut EP, “Camp.” Borger evokes the youthful feeling that there’s so much left to live for. Songs like “Mr. Rodgers” and “Vineyard” feature conversational lyrics about love, exploration, and staying out past curfew. Harris utilizes a smoky vocal whisper in “Nat Geo,” a climactic song about the vulnerability in navigating interpersonal relationships. “Camp” is a lo-fi, meditative mix of indie rock, shoegaze, and slowcore, with melancholic undertones. Borger will perform its EP release show, along with Pomelo and Brian Blatt, on Friday, June 21, 9 p.m. at Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Avenue. $5. Ages 21 and over. bugjar.com; borger.fun.

JAZZ

Rochester’s enigmatic art-folk quartet The Archive Ravens delivers a distinctive blend of world folk, neo-Renaissance, and classical chamber music in its impressive debut album of original music, “Trobairitz.” There’s the deep, bellowing cello, accented by lead vocalist Ava Sauer’s interwoven vocal harmonies in the Japanese-influenced “Kintsugi,” or the cathedral-level expansiveness and heavy organ sounds in “Ave Eva.” “Delicate” is a romantic vocal duet, with harmonies whirling around piano-heavy lullabies with fawning fragility. Songs like “Catalogue of Eyes” and “Marble Street” take on a mythic quality, with poetic metaphors for life and death, while “Strings of Pearl” and “Sandcastle Samba” offer more upbeat swing and Brazilian dance styles, respectively. Interestingly, “Trobairitz” caps off with two versions of the song, “Collapsed”: one, a dense and jazzy orchestral arrangement; the other, a raw, acoustic rendition for piano and voice only.

Indie rock for adults Wilder Maker WITH ANAMON FRIDAY, JUNE 21 THE DAILY REFRESHER, 293 ALEXANDER STREET 8 P.M. | FREE | THEDAILYREFRESHER.COM WILDERMAKER.COM [ FEATURE ] BY DANIEL J. KUSHNER

Brooklyn-based multi-instrumentalist Gabriel Birnbaum lives a life seemingly consumed by a blue-collar, indie music ethos. Frequently on the road, both as a saxophonist for the Ethiopian American music outfit Debo Band and as frontman and guitarist of 12 CITY JUNE 19 - 25, 2019

Wilder Maker, Birnbaum spends his nights gigging and his itinerant days as a publicist for Clandestine Label Services. When your life is literally filled with nonstop music, there’s little time to catch your breath. Case in point, Wilder Maker is currently on a 10-concert tour through the Midwest and the Rust Belt, in support of its new digital single “Love So Well” and the B-side “Rose Room.” The band will play in Rochester — a frequent tour stop for Birnbaum and company — on Friday, June 21 at The Daily Refresher. On the heels of last year’s full-length album “Zion” — on which the band crystallized its sophisticated, almost adult contemporary take on indie rock — Wilder

Maker is transitioning from a full-fledged quartet to a touring trio, with recording contributions from a former full-time member, the vocalist and keyboardist Katie Von Schleicher. Birnbaum, bassist Nick Jost, and drummer Sean Mullins continue bringing the music of Wilder Maker on the road, with its bluesy, grooveoriented guitar riffs and complex mixedmeter rhythms. The resulting sound is delightfully dizzying, as the exuberance of the songs collide with a subdued lyrical mood voiced through Birnbaum’s resonant, deep, and brooding baritone. It’s a pivotal time for the band, since such a crucial part of its identity is built on the music chemistry between Birnbaum and Von

Schleicher, who frequently share lead vocals on Wilder Maker’s recordings. “She can’t really be a member of the band,” Birnbaum says, “and I would like the identity of the band to shift to reflect that. Because I don’t really like playing shows and having people be like, ‘Where’s the rest of the band?’” With Von Schleicher ceasing to tour with the group in order to pursue her solo project, Birnbaum has had to adjust as a vocalist. “Since I’ve been performing more without Katie, I’ve been learning more about pushing my voice in different directions,” Birnbaum says. “I’ve worked on a fair amount of falsetto stuff, and there’s been more of that in some of the new songs.”


The two musicians have collaborated together for nearly a decade, and Von Schleicher’s voice can be heard front-andcenter on “Love So Well.” Moving forward, Birnbaum says he’d be shocked if they didn’t continue to work together on Wilder Maker’s recorded music. “She’s really busy with her project, obviously, and leading a band at this level is not very profitable,” Birnbaum says. “And you can sort of be in one band like this: where it’s like you don’t really make any money when you do the touring, but it’s your project, and you care about it. But it’s really hard to be in multiple projects where you don’t really make any money when you’re touring, ‘cause it’s just so time-consuming.” With Wilder Maker in trio formation, Birnbaum’s songs are anchored by the rhythm section of Jost and Mullins, whose sneaky precision and technical prowess propel the music forward. “They never play like music school guys, you know?” Birnbaum says. “They’re never showing off. There’s a running joke in the band where I always tell Sean that if I ever get pissed off at him, I’ll give him a drum solo, because that would be his least favorite thing in the universe.” Jost and Mullins each bring distinctive stylistic influences that reveal new wrinkles in Wilder Maker’s music. Jost, who also plays bass for the metal band Baroness, brings an aggressive energy and a propensity for shredding that Birnbaum says wouldn’t necessarily exist in the songs otherwise. Mullins’ interest in hip-hop and what Birnbaum calls “instrumental, beat-based music” leads to the implementation of various rhythmic tricks — including a technique the group borrowed from J Dilla’s music, in which the kick drum sound that would typically fall on the downbeat is removed entirely. “And that is a really fun influence,” Birnbaum says, “especially ‘cause we play what most people think of as folk rock, so it’s really fun to bring ideas in from such faraway genres.” Even as Wilder Maker turns a corner, Birnbaum sees the band’s newly released music as part of the “Zion” era. “Most of the songs on ‘Zion’ are not about ‘interesting’ things,” Birnbaum says. “‘Cocaine Man’ is about sitting on a bench, waiting for a drug dealer that doesn’t show up, outside a party, basically, and talking to someone. That’s pretty much the whole content of the song. ‘Closer to God’ is about moving apartments.”

With “Zion,” Birnbaum wanted to cover subject matter that typically wouldn’t be turned into songs. In focusing on some of the more mundane aspects of life, he sought to “make them also feel magical and feel holy and feel special,” he says. Birnbaum refers to Wilder Maker as “music for adults.” He sees a contrast between much of the indie rock scene today — with its focus on singular feelings that take over when you’re a teenager — and the more complex combination of emotions articulated in Wilder Maker’s songs. A prime example is “Rose Room,” a slow-burning, mid-tempo rock tune with impulsive guitar crunchiness and a punchy rhythmic sensibility. “It’s about that feeling when your life is kinda falling apart,” Birnbaum says, “and you touch bottom, and then you push back really hard. I’ve dealt with pretty bad depression for my whole life, and it can be incapacitating. And then there’s always a point where some instinct kicks in and breaks me out of it, usually after things feel pretty bad. And it’s just like, ‘You have to get your shit together, right now.’” In a way, Wilder Maker’s music feels like the soundtrack to getting older and wiser. “It would probably be impossible for me to be in my early 30’s,” Birnbaum says, “playing in a slightly successful rock band, and not have those kinds of feelings of trying to balance my adulthood with this sort of very youthful thing that I spend my time doing.”

Joseph Accorso’s “High Falls Spring Runoff” is part of the 66th Rochester-Finger Lakes Exhibition, the Memorial Art Gallery’s biennial spotlight on regional artists. The show is on view through September 15. PHOTO COURTESY OF THE ARTIST

ROC-FLX flex The 66th Rochester-Finger Lakes Exhibition CONTINUES THROUGH SEPTEMBER 15 MEMORIAL ART GALLERY, 500 UNIVERSITY AVENUE WEDNESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY, 11 A.M. TO 5 P.M.; THURSDAYS UNTIL 9 P.M. $6-$15; HALF-PRICE ADMISSION THU AFTER 5 P.M.; FREE TO AGES 5 AND UNDER, SNAP CARD HOLDERS (PLUS 3 GUESTS), AND UR STUDENTS, FACULTY, AND STAFF | 276-8900; MAG.ROCHESTER.EDU [ REVIEW ] BY REBECCA RAFFERTY

This year’s iteration of the biennial Rochester-Finger Lake Exhibition has a strong emphasis on experimental drawings and many from that group were among my favorite works in the show. There’s some really skillful sculpture, ranging from furniture and vessels to 16 CITY JUNE 19 - 25, 2019

whimsical characters, and two video installations. This year’s selection of paintings includes flawless traditional still life (Ithaca-based Patricia Coonrod’s work is near photographic), breathtaking depictions of familiar landscapes (Joseph Accorso’s “High Falls Spring Runoff ”), engaging abstracts (including “Electrical Storm, New York” from one of my favorite local artists, Alan Singer), and gorgeous portraits of every aesthetic. The range of included artists appears to skew younger than in past shows, which is wonderful, as this region has many hardworking and serious emerging artists. With 62 artists featured in the show, it wasn’t easy to decide which pieces to mention in this limited space. So I wrote about my Rochester-Finger Lakes Exhibition Top 20. (Six picks are included here, the rest are online at rochestercitynewspaper.com). We encourage you to check out the show for yourself, and tell us which pieces held your attention and why.

Canandaigua-based artist Jeanne Beck’s

mixed-media installation “Book of Longings” hits just perfectly. A fragile-looking cascade of tiny “pages” are suspended amid equallyfragile chains, dominating an entire wall. The light bouncing off each of the metallicpainted, paper pages acts as a beacon as the pieces gently shift, beckoning you closer to discover the work’s secrets. I initially mistook Rochester-based photographer Dick Bennett’s photo “Genesee Country Village Smoke House” for a charcoal drawing, in all of its gorgeously grainy and layered gray tones. A cluster of what looks like haunches hang from meat hooks, veiled in pale smoke, with the further-back slabs of meat dissolving into the shed’s shadowy interior. It’s such an enveloping image that you can almost smell the scene and feel your eyes begin to water. “A Map of Getting Lost” by Belinda Bryce (Rochester) looks like a city — any city —from above; Google Earth on street view but set to dark mode. The slightly imperfect, crowded

grid of streets butts abruptly against a narrow darkness on the left; is that a body of water, or where the urban crush suddenly drops off? Red dots peppered in a mysterious pattern mark unspecified significance, and a swath of subtly encroaching shadow covers part of the map, as if delineating the divide of day and night. Rochester artist Colleen Buzzard’s “Hard Merge From Left,” which won the Elmer Louis Award, contains a fascinating and playful push-and-pull of line and form through the dimensions. One part sculpture, one part drawing, the work includes a meandering, tangled wire sculpture cradling a geometric paper form; a drawing on the gallery wall that flows from the wire and mimics its form; and the shadow of the 3D form on the wall below it. The work somehow feels sentient and made me consider other, imperceptible dimensions. Ronan Christopher Louis Award-winner Cory Card of Rochester has two graphite drawings in the show that are as skillful as they are lighthearted. “Sweepings 17: Dust Conglomerate” and “Sweepings 12: Belly Button Lint II” are painstaking replicas of dust clusters twisted with strands of hair, surrounded by an open sea of white paper. The drawings are so detailed that the first time I saw them, in an exhibit at Rochester Contemporary Art Center, I assumed some wiseass just stuck a clump of studio detritus under glass. When I read his name on the labels at RoCo, I recalled a friend of mine told me of his work, recounting how he was chatting with Card over his work and absently brushed at the drawing, trying to clear the dust. Good thing they’re shown under glass.

Syracuse-based artist Susan D’Amato’s mixed-media work “Taxonomy of Air: From the Ten Thousand Things (Installation),” is another wall-swallowing behemoth. But instead of flashing signals at you from across the room as Jeanne Beck’s work does, the grid of pale, delicate rice paper panels in D’Amato’s work beckon with their subtlety. Each small piece of paper bears a different ink drawing and is pinned to the wall so that the panels shiver a bit when you approach (or breathe). The drawings are delicate wisps

of organic material, some resembling tiny, uprooted marsh plants, others looking like matted hair drawn from a drain. As simple as the sketches are, there’s a dimensionality to them in the way each new line scratches away some of the layered pigment. ROC-FLX programming includes two days of artists’ talks: Thursday, July 18, features Christina Brinkman (ceramics), Andy Buck (wood sculptures), and KaoriMei Stephens (painting); and Thursday,

ART BY PAUL GARLAND

ART | ‘PAUL GARLAND: COME IN’

Only about a week remains to view Paul Garland’s solo show at AXOM Gallery. The Fair Haven, New York-based artist’s work continues to evolve after five decades. Garland says that his practice transitions between landscapes, non-objective work, and a blend of the two styles. The exhibit at AXOM, “Come In,” features 60 new non-objective paintings filled with dreamy, layered textures and rich hues, as well as collage. Garland says this show will mark a departure from that aesthetic for a time, as he’s begun working on a new series of landscapes that will incorporate some non-objective elements. “Come In” remains on view through Saturday, June 29, at AXOM Gallery & Exhibition Space, 176 Anderson Avenue (floor 2). Gallery hours are Tuesday through Friday, noon to 6 p.m.; and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and by appointment. Free admission. 232-6030; axomgallery.com. — BY REBECCA RAFFERTY

Fans of dog shows (and especially, fans of “Best in Show,” the film) listen up: This week is your opportunity to experience the pageantry, the prestige, the joy and the tears, as primped and proper pups fill the Dome Arena. The Genesee Valley Kennel Club and Tonawanda Valley Kennel Club’s three-day “WNY Twin Valley Cluster” is a conformation, obedience, and rally show, featuring hundreds of hopefuls within specific American Kennel Club-recognized dog breeds. Friday features Glenna Goodwin as an evaluator of AKC Canine Good Citizen and AKC Trick Dog Testing, also with the Best Puppy (also on Sunday) and Junior Showmanship competitions. The weekend features clinics, a Bernese Mountain Dog “Meet the Breed” event, Obedience Trials and Rally Trials, and more.

If so, you may qualify for a new gas permeable material research study!

The study involves 7 visits over the course of 90 days. You may be compensated for your time. Please contact the clinical coordinator below if you are interested. Blayke Burdick • (585) 249-8300 x1016 • bburdick@reedeye.com

Film

Tessa Thompson and Chris Hemsworth in “Men in Black: International.” PHOTO COURTESY SONY PICTURES

International incident “Men in Black: International” (PG-13), DIRECTED BY F. GARY GRAY NOW PLAYING [ REVIEW ] BY ADAM LUBITOW

In an article recently published on New York Magazine’s entertainment site Vulture, writer Rachel Handler presents an oral history of Barry Sonnenfeld’s original “Men in Black,” focusing specifically on the memorable “sugar water” scene that introduces the film’s

villainous intergalactic bug, Edgar (played by the wonderful Vincent D’Onofrio). It’s a wildly entertaining read, and one that turns out to be instructive in pinpointing exactly what’s changed in blockbuster filmmaking over the 22 years since that film was released. What’s most surprising is learning how much freedom D’Onofrio was given to play and experiment with the role, working with his director and the special effects artist to create an indelible, fully-realized character. And that work paid off with one of the best and most underrated performances of the 90’s.

A comparison between the picture painted in that article — of the value placed on the creative process when making the first MIB film — and the one suggested by its just-released third sequel, “Men in Black: International” is disheartening to say the least. Reuniting “Thor: Ragnarok” co-stars Tessa Thompson and Chris Hemsworth should have been a home run, but “Men in Black: International” whiffs it by refusing to take any chances whatsoever. Gone is the imagination and wit that made the original such a success; in its place is a

lifeless and unforgivably generic piece of studio content. The film assumes its audience is already familiar with the Men in Black organization, a secret force of black-suited and sunglassessporting heroes who save the world from extraterrestrial threats. Much like the first film, the plot pairs an eager new recruit paired with a more seasoned veteran. We meet Molly (Thompson), whose close encounter as a child left her obsessed with tracking down the secretive organization. It takes 20 years, but she finally succeeds, sneaking herself into the MIB headquarters. She’s found out, of course, and in one of the film’s more delightful scenes convinces Emma Thompson’s Agent O to give her a shot at the job. Impressed by her initiative, O makes her a probationary agent and sends her from New York to the London office, presided over by High T (Liam Neeson). There Molly (now Agent M) is partnered with the cocky H (Hemsworth) to dig into a mysterious threat known as The Hive. The new film does forge a slightly new path by being more of a full-bore spy movie than its predecessors. But director F. Gary Gray and his screenwriters, Art Marcum and Matt Holloway, make the mistake of piling on incident and plot to the detriment of all else. For all its zany aliens and goofy action, what made the first “Men in Black” work was the odd-couple, buddy comedy energy between stars Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones. The problem is a general laziness from studios who are content to repackage recognizable properties without putting in the work to make them feel fresh. Especially in a film about exploring the mysteries of the universe, you’ve got to show us something new. An extended version of this review is online at rochestercitynewspaper.com.
