The blame game does nothing to solve the problem. The combination of a landlord not maintaining a property, having a mortgage from a bank that did not do its homework, and having had tenants who did not keep it clean is an all-around lose-lose for the neighbors and the city. Who is accountable now for this property? ROSE O’KEEFE
Palazzo Plaza’s a bad deal
AMATEUR & PROFESSIONAL DIVISIONS
So the Daniele family wants to build a new plaza on one of the busiest roads and intersections — Monroe Avenue at Route 590 — in Monroe County (News, July 29). In return for approval from the Brighton Town Board, they promise to upgrade the walking path behind the new plaza and add some bicycle racks. WOW, really? What a tradeoff. I bet if the Town Board held out, it could get a few portable toilets, too. I don’t even live in Brighton and I can see that this plaza is going to be a bad idea. TOM DOLAN

I recently called a regional bank about an abandoned house on Gregory Street. The friendly rep gave me the phone number for NYS Office of Unclaimed Funds, and I left a message. This property has been vacant since December 2014 and, in my opinion, should have been boarded up. The bank that now has responsibility for it sent a work crew a few weeks ago. They removed an entire truckload of vines off the house, and put a tarp over the roof, which was in bad shape 20 years ago. When I asked if they were going to board up the windows, they said no, but they sealed the doors. A few days later, we saw wood strips with nails, like the ones holding down the tarp on the roof, between my neighbor’s house and the abandoned house. The back door was open. I called the NSC about the back door, and the man said that the city would send someone to close it up.
Don’t get too excited about photonics
The Urban Journal piece, “Seligman’s Very Big Plan for the Very Big Deal” (August 5) is an interesting read. My favorite part is when you write, “No one knows yet how many jobs the institute will create, and the jobs won’t all be located here. We’ll be the headquarters, the hub of the research and development, but the manufacturing itself, the jobs that grow out of the institute, could be anywhere.” Therein is the rub. While the UR is the 800-pound gorilla in this area due to its being the largest employer, it is not the source of the funding. That brings us to the Golden Rule: He who has the gold makes the rules. I encourage you and your interested readers to research the Center for Optics Manufacturing — spoiler alert: opened in 1990 and closed in 2003 — at the UR, and the Infotonics Technology Center in Canandaigua to see how these large efforts typically work out. The main difference this time? More money is being handed out to more people in a larger area. Western New York will be expected to take what money is given, do with it what they are told, and kiss the rings of the people writing the checks. It is a large pile that will have a lot of flies buzzing around it, so we will see how it turns out. I imagine that you may have deduced that I am not optimistic about the outcome in general.

Low participation by area voters is shameful Back in the day, 66 percent was a failing grade. Today, 67 percent of Rochester residents are registered to vote. Praise to the 23 percent
of those registered voters who participated in the historic election of our first female mayor. Such a noble but unrepresentative voter turnout makes us wonder how our mayor or any elected official can move forward with an informed sense of community investment. This November, four commissioners will be elected to the city school board that sets standards that affect each of us. While all seven seats of this lamentable board ought to be up for new perspectives, the four successful candidates will carry on an old Rochester tradition of accepting their elections by a failing voter turnout of a failing voter registration. How can a city survive such disregard for itself? If only we had a school board that taught and modeled the win-win correlation between civic participation and academic achievement. If only this new board majority stepped up to teach this city a most precious lesson of democracy and declined to accept their election until a more proper election could be held. How about an election with a percentage of voter turnout that at the very least reaches the student graduation rates of their board predecessors? Sadly, even that would still be an unrepresentative failing grade hovering around 50 percent. What would a proper election look like and, since we can’t depend on the city school board, who will teach us? PETER KEENAN JR.
Say no to expanding the convention center
When one of the best arguments you can make for spending $100 million to expand the convention center (News, August 12) is that it would enable the Rochester International Auto Show to expand, you essentially have no argument. There is not one shred of evidence that dumping $100 million on the convention center is going to have any payback whatsoever. ANIMULE

URBAN JOURNAL | BY MARY ANNA TOWLER
The photonics mess This is just awful. Last month, we won a national competition to host the headquarters of a photonics institute. Sounded like a big deal. Got everybody excited – especially, for some of us, because it would likely be located downtown. The specific site of choice appeared to be the Sibley Building. University of Rochester President Joel Seligman, who was involved in the push for the institute, said it should go there. Senator Chuck Schumer said so, too. And then came the cloud. Last Thursday morning, several highpowered local business leaders stepped in, saying: downtown, yes. But the Sibley Building? No. That word came in a statement from the Rochester Business Alliance on behalf of a group named the Rochester Business Leaders Photonics Working Group. The “clear choice” for the headquarters and incubator facilities, they said, is Legacy Tower, which formerly housed Bausch + Lomb’s headquarters. The statement identifies the Working Group as “leaders interested in the future impact of the photonics institute on Rochester and the Finger Lakes region.” Its members, the statement says, include Wegmans CEO Danny Wegman, Eastman Kodak CEO Jeff Clarke, Paychex CEO Marty Mucci, Home Properties CEO Ed Pettinella, Pike Companies chair Thomas Judson, Jr., and Rochester Business Alliance CEO Bob Duffy. Shortly after that, there was another statement, this one from Seligman, Representative Louise Slaughter, Assembly Majority Leader Joe Morelle, County Executive Maggie Brooks, RIT President William Destler – and Danny Wegman (who seemed to be backing off from the Working Group’s statement). “We continue to believe that the choice of the Sibley Building is the wisest choice,” they said. And they cautioned that decisions about siting – for the headquarters and for the manufacturing facilities that result – need to be made carefully, in an orderly way, and collaboratively. Late Monday afternoon, though, it seemed to be all over. The Albany-based SUNY Polytechnic Institute – “the grant awardee and contracting entity with the Department of Defense,” a press release noted – and the Business Leaders Photonics Working Group announced that the headquarters would be in Legacy Tower. And then, a few hours later, came a statement from Wegman, Seligman, and Morelle: “Despite press reports to the contrary, no decision has been finalized on a new downtown headquarters” for the photonics institute. “We welcome
The fight over the photonics institute’s headquarters is not about real estate. It is about power, leadership, and process.” SUNY Polytechnic’s interest in locating a headquarters downtown and we thank them for their recommendation, which we will take under advisement. The Rochester leadership, in conjunction with Governor Cuomo, will make the final decision on where to locate the appropriate photonics facilities in our community.” Tuesday morning on WXXI, Morelle followed up with a stronger smackdown, saying that at “a handful” of local business leaders are being manipulated by SUNY Poly. And he accused SUNY Poly of wanting “to reach in and tell people of Rochester” what to do, of “trying to impose their will without our participation.” “I would respectfully hope they would back away,” he said, and let Rochester make the decisions. There’s so much we don’t know right now.
For starters, who really is in charge of the photonics institute that Rochester won? Who gets to decide who’s in charge? And: Why did the presidents of Paychex, Kodak, Wegmans, Home Properties, and Pike side with SUNY Poly in this fight? Why did Bob Duffy do that? Did he drink some kind of Kool-Aid while he was working in Albany as lieutenant governor and decide that SUNY Poly is a better friend than Rochester and our universities? continues on page 8 rochestercitynewspaper.com
[ NEWS FROM THE WEEK PAST ]
Fracking deja vu
State Health Department Commissioner Howard Zucker told the Albany-based political blog Capital Tonight that he plans to “look at” a proposal to use gelled propane for fracking wells in the Southern Tier. Zucker didn’t elaborate on what the review might include. In early July, a group of farm owners and Tioga Energy LLC said they’d file an application with the state to extract natural gas from beneath 53 acres of land in the Town of Barton, Tioga County.
Scrubbing out microbeads
Wegmans and Tops will both stop selling products containing plastic microbeads, at least in Erie County, according to the Buffalo News. At the end of July, the Erie County Legislature passed a law banning the sale of products containing microbeads, and County Executive Mark Poloncarz has since signed it. Tops will phase out microbeads at all of its stores – not just those in Erie County – over the next six months, according to the News. But it’s not clear whether Wegmans is following suit in all of its stores, or whether it’s simply pulling products containing microbeads from Erie County shelves.
A group of Rochester region business leaders publicly released a letter recommending Legacy Tower, the former Bausch + Lomb office building downtown, as the site for the new photonics institute’s headquarters. The letter was signed by officials including Rochester Business Alliance President and CEO Bob Duffy, Kodak CEO Jeff Clarke, and Wegmans CEO Danny Wegman. But Wegman also signed on to a response letter from Sibley Building supporters, reiterating its value as the headquarters site. Congress member Louise Slaughter, Mayor Lovely Warren, County Executive Maggie Brooks, Assembly Majority Leader Joe Morelle, University of Rochester President Joel Seligman, and RIT President William Destler signed that one.
Pierre cleared in 2002 homicides
A second trial resulted in a not-guilty verdict for a Trinidad immigrant who had spent 13 years in prison. Charles Pierre had been convicted for two brutal Rochester homicides, but after another man was said to have talked about committing those crimes, last year County Court Judge Douglas Randall overturned the verdict. District Attorney Sandra Doorley, who had first prosecuted Pierre, decided to retry Pierre. But jurors took only a few hours to find him not guilty.

Last year, several roads in Richmond were washed out after a July storm dumped 6 inches of rain on the town in three hours. Some of the same areas were damaged again during flooding this past June. FILE PHOTO
ENVIRONMENT | BY JEREMY MOULE
Town’s rained out and tapped out On June 15, 3.3 inches of rain fell within 40 minutes in the Ontario County town of Richmond. The “gully washer,” as Supervisor Ralph Angelo calls it, busted out 22 culverts along town roads, with East Lake Road taking the worst hit. If that sounds familiar, there’s good reason. On one July day last year, downpours dumped 6 inches of rain on Richmond in three hours, and a section of East Lake Road was entirely washed out. The town subsequently spent $400,000 to repair the damages; the bill equaled the entire town highway budget.
“What we put back, it washed it all out,” Angelo says of this year’s flood. Richmond and the neighboring town of Canadice, which suffered flood damages from the same June 2015 storm, will receive some state funding to aid in their recovery efforts. State Senator Rich Funke announced last week that Richmond will get $300,000 and Canadice will get $100,000. But the flood damage, and the cost of related repairs, show the importance of planning for and adapting to climate change. The federal government’s National Climate Assessment says that across the Northeast, heavy downpours are happening more often, and they’re
becoming more intense. Between 1958 and 2012, the amount of precipitation attributed to the heaviest 1 percent of storms grew by 71 percent. That trend is expected to continue, especially if man-made carbon emissions aren’t substantially decreased, and soon. Richmond officials want to avoid replacing the same culverts every year, so they’re looking ahead. As the town repairs the washed-out conduits – 10 of the 22 culverts washed out in June have already been fixed – it’s making them wider, Angelo says. More water will be able to pass through, and the channels will be less likely to clog with debris.

Attack rallies trans community Nicole Clark, a 19-year-old transgender woman, was attacked last month on Monroe Avenue near Goodman Street. Clark, who was with her mother at the time, says she was punched several times and knocked to the ground, where the attack continued, according to a police report. Police later charged Dyshieka McFadden with harassment in relation to the attack. Police have since charged McFadden with third-degree assault as a hate crime, which is a felony. Police allege that McFadden used homophobic and gender-related slurs while punching and kicking Clark. McFadden also allegedly questioned Clark about her clothing and genitals. The attack has reverberated through Rochester’s transgender community as well as the broader LGBT community, says Julia Acosta, a transgender woman and activist. Even though the general public has recently become more aware of transgender people’s concerns, safety remains a huge issue for the trans community, Acosta says. Research shows that trans people of color are particularly vulnerable, she says. “There is still so much violence directed at trans people,” says Acosta. “And every

The State Education Department recently released the latest results of statewide tests in English Language Arts and math for grades 3 through 8. Overall, the number of students performing at proficient or higher levels in math has risen to 38 percent since the Common Core standards were introduced in 2013. But ELA scores generally have remained stagnant with 31 percent scoring proficient or higher. Students in the Rochester school district, however, continue to have the lowest scores of the state’s largest urban school districts, known as the Big Five. Only 4.7 percent of city students scored at proficient or higher levels in ELA and 7.4 percent in math. The tests and the results are controversial, because about 20 percent of the students eligible to take them opted out after a strong push by anti-testing advocates. This has left state education officials at odds with many parents and the teachers unions about the validity of the tests.

Veterans Chuck Butera (left) and Shannon Barradas participate in art therapy at the Veterans Outreach Center. PHOTO BY MARK CHAMBERLIN
US Air Force vet Shannon Barradas spent a recent afternoon painting the intricate details of a mixed-media piece she calls, “Rebirth.” Barradas, who served in Operation Desert Storm, has been going to art therapy at the Veterans Outreach Center on South Avenue for about a year, and is preparing her own art show. “I’ve been in three different VA systems, and the best services are here,” she says. “But most veterans are not really aware of that.” While the Rochester-Finger Lakes region has numerous programs and services available to veterans, such as the center’s art therapy program, finding them isn’t easy. “That’s the horrible thing,” says Army vet Chuck Butera, who suffers from posttraumatic stress disorder. “It’s basically up to the veteran to find out what services and benefits are available. Maybe most of us would not be as bad off as we are if we knew about these services when we first came home.” Todd Baxter, executive director of the Veterans Outreach Center, is trying to fix that. The Army veteran and former Greece police chief says that while the region is rich with nonprofits, colleges, businesses, VA hospitals, and community organizations that offer support to veterans, that navigating that maze is an exhausting and frustrating exercise. Baxter says that the system doesn’t always provide the best opportunities for vets or their families, and that it doesn’t make great economic sense, either. “A veteran comes back and is confused,” he says. “The world they knew has changed. If they have any kind of stress in their life or any kind of difficulty, sometimes they just give up. They’ll say, ‘I don’t know where to go, much less have the ability to fill out 20 pages of paperwork only to have it lost a couple of times.’” Baxter has proposed an $8-million plan to convert the Veterans Outreach Center into a regional office over the next five years to serve the nine-county Rochester-Finger
Lakes area. It would build on the center’s reputation as a “one-stop shop” for helping veterans with wellness and job-training programs. Data sharing Todd Baxter. PHOTO BY with all of the MARK CHAMBERLIN surrounding agencies is a critical element of Baxter’s plan, which he says would reduce redundancy and eliminate a lot of the frustration that vets experience. Vets walking in the door would be assigned a case manager who would become a single point-person to assess their needs and to help guide them to the right services. “That case manager would become the vet’s best friend,” Baxter says. Education, employment, and housing are also key components of the proposal, he says. Preparing veterans for employment, improving their current employment status, and getting them into their own homes are among the most challenging hurdles for many veterans, Baxter says. Success in those areas is essential to providing family stability, he says.
And they are factors that influence the entire region, too, he says. “In five years we want to be able to say what we’ve done in a measurable way to move these veterans up the ladder of life,” Baxter says. “If we’re moving 5,000 vets upward, what does that do for reducing poverty? We’re improving the lives of vets, but we’re improving the economy, too.” The proposal is the result of the work of the Veterans Task Force, a subgroup of Governor Andrew Cuomo’s Finger Lakes Regional Economic Development Council. Cuomo asked the council to make sure that veterans are an integral part of the group’s redevelopment strategies by assessing the services in the area and how to improve them. Baxter says that there are about 48,000 veterans in Monroe County, and about 80,000 total in the nine-county region. With that size population comes countless social and economic issues: poverty, homelessness, high unemployment, addictions, and a wide range of medical and mental-health problems — even suicides. As a member of the task force, Baxter says that discovering the level of expertise available in almost every county was an eyeopening experience. “I’m interviewing the veterans [service] coordinator in Yates County and he’s telling me that he works all the time with veterans’ elder abuse cases,” Baxter says. “I was a cop and I know elder abuse, but I would never have known that this guy is an expert we can call on.” Baxter says that while he wasn’t aware of all of the services available to veterans in the other agencies, those agencies are just as likely to be unaware that his office offers programs such as art therapy. “There truly is this sea of goodwill out there, but there’s no efficiency to it,” he says. “We’re all just trying to do the right thing, but we need to coordinate better.” Baxter says that he understands that his proposal may be rejected by the Finger Lakes council. If that happens, he says that will continue to work on the same goals, but scale them back to what his office and others can achieve. Another concern is making sure that the various agencies don’t feel threatened and retreat to their silos to protect their individual funding streams, Baxter says. The proposal is not about taking anything away from all the different agencies, he says, but making them a stronger and cohesive force. “If we filled in gaps and eliminated barriers, we would be so much more effective, particularly at getting people into the workforce,” Baxter says.

The photonics mess continues from page 3
Why did the business leaders leaders do what they did without talking to Seligman, Morelle, and other local leaders? Questions aside, one thing seems clear: This is a fight between SUNY Poly in Albany and local leaders. That looks particularly ugly because it seems to be SUNY Poly trying to muscle out someone who has become a particularly strong community leader in Rochester and in the nine-county region: UR president Joel Seligman. This can do great damage. The photonics award was the result of years of tremendous effort and collaboration – 55 companies, 20 universities and laboratories, 33 other educational institutions, 16 non-profits, and representatives from 20 states – this in a region not known for always working together. Into that achievement, an Albany university and a handful of local business executives have tossed a handgrenade. Sorry. There’s just no other way to read this. What happens next is critical. Somebody higher up – the governor? the Department of Defense? – needs to make clear immediately who’s in charge. And frankly, that “who” must be local leaders, not SUNY Poly. Maybe, of course, this isn’t a SUNY Poly power grab. That institution has been doing a lot for the Rochester area. They’re already involved in the tech centers in Canandaigua 8 CITY

and the Canal Ponds Business Park in Greece. Maybe the SUNY Poly folks believe they’re better leaders and we’ll just screw up. If so, I think they’re wrong. This region is now working together on a wide variety of initiatives. We’ve been collaborating – across municipal boundaries, across county lines, despite competing interests and despite governmental structures and history that make collaborating nearly impossible. Not only do we not need to have key decisions impacting this region made by outside interests but it is counter-productive. And it is highly destructive. Appearances to the contrary, this fight is not about real estate. It is about power, leadership, and process. The location of the photonics headquarters is the first of many decisions, and it will pale in importance to some of the others. Where will the $610 million photonics institute money go? Which existing and new businesses and labs will do the research and the work and create the jobs? How will the institute work with the entities in other states that are partners in this effort? Will those decisions be made collaboratively, or by one person or institution? I’m sure this mess can be cleaned up. And I’m sure everybody involved can recreate the sense of forward movement – and excitement – that we had a few weeks ago. But the Albany power grab has to stop.

Wolf in burger’s clothing Blu Wolf Bistro 657 PARK AVENUE MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY, 11 A.M. TO 12 A.M.; SATURDAY AND SUNDAY, 9 A.M. TO 12 A.M. 270-4467; BLUWOLFBISTRO.COM [ REVIEW ] BY DAVE BUDGAR
Over the last several years, Rochester has welcomed several gastropubs to its dining and imbibing scene. Included in that burgeoning group — and offering fine company to such notables as Tap and Mallet, Lovin’ Cup, Victoire, and ButaPub — is Blu Wolf Bistro, which opened in 2013 on the corner of Park Avenue and Berkeley Street, at the site of the former Colie’s Café. Fittingly, Blu Wolf offers a diverse and extensive selection of draft and bottled beers, a solid sampling of both red and white wines (many of which are available by the glass), and a well-composed cocktail menu, which is modified seasonally. On the warm July evening of my first visit, my sister, cousin, and I took advantage of Blu Wolf’s outdoor seating — which offers the added benefit of being prime people-watching real estate — and enjoyed Melon Mules ($9): Grey Goose Le Melon vodka, ginger beer, fresh lime, and Domaine De Canton (a ginger liqueur)
in dimpled hammered copper cups. Tart, refreshing, and crisp, the drink proved the perfect preface to our meals. We opted to share three different “First Bites” appetizers. Pork rinds ($6), a rarity on Rochester menus, seemed a must. Although fresh, light, and airy, they were somewhat ordinary in terms of flavor, but the Southwest ranch dipping sauce heightened my interest. The Frito Misto ($9), a mix of light, crispy fried zucchini, green beans, and red bell pepper came accompanied with the same dipping sauce, and a coconut-basil aioli, both of which enhanced the individual vegetables’ flavor, admirably retained through the frying process. The next day, the cold leftovers still tasted like the pre-fried veggies, and still had a bit of crunch and enough crispy breading to satisfy as a cold snack. The Buffalo calamari ($11) sounded like too good a combination to be true, and in fact it was — it was the only true disappointment of the meal. While the wing sauce was tangy and biting (I’d imagine Blu Wolf does a fine job with chicken wings), the calamari pieces (“cut from ‘steaks,’” according to our server) were thick, dense, and chewy with an unappetizing consistency. On a subsequent solo lunch visit, I started
with the stout-infused French onion soup ($6). More often than not, I find a restaurant’s
French onion soups either too salty or too sweet, — the latter being preferable, since it can be modified with a deft hand and a saltshaker. Blu Wolf ’s did err on the side of sweet, but other than that, it had a rich depth of flavor, topped with homemade croutons (which made for easier consumption as compared to a thick slice of bread), and impeccably broiled Swiss cheese. While Blu Wolf offers many things for many people, the burgers (always 8-ounce patties) — of which there are at least 16 varieties — are its bedrock. The Reuben Special burger ($15), topped with real, honest-to-goodness carved corned beef, Swiss cheese, coleslaw (using house-made pickled red cabbage), and Thousand Island dressing is as delicious as it is messy (extra napkins are a de rigueur accompaniment to burgers here). Similarly, the Banh Mi burger ($16) combines cultures and components effectively, using pulled pork, cucumber, jalapeños, cilantro, pickled carrot, daikon radish, and garlic aioli to provide a spicy Vietnamese essence to an expertly cooked medium-rare burger. On my lunch visit, I tried the Baked Potato Grilled Cheese sandwich ($11), which shows off more of Blu Wolf ’s unique playwith-your-food personality. The sandwich’s Texas toast (from Baker Street) envelops melted cheddar cheese, Applewood-smoked maple bacon, and Blu Wolf ’s Bent Arm fries.
It was a pleasing panoply of textures and tastes. I was skeptical about how the side of sour cream would work as a condiment, but it succeeded. Between the two visits, we sampled three milkshakes (Blu Wolf sources its milk from Byrne Dairy and ice cream from Bruster’s). Quintessential in its thickness and nuanced flavors, the vanilla ($6) took the dessert prize. The strawberry milkshake ($6) was also first-rate, but a bit thinner than the vanilla, perhaps because it incorporated real strawberries. The least successful was the caramel pretzel milkshake ($7), whose flavor was too heavily weighted with pretzel and was subsequently grainy in composition. Both meals for this review took place outside, and that is where Blu Wolf Bistro notably shone. Too often, outdoor patrons are seemingly forgotten and left to twist in the wind while waiting on servers. At Blu Wolf, we were attended to attentively, efficiently, and courteously, our server offered to split our bill, and my glass of iced tea never reached bottom. Additionally, our servers answered every question thoughtfully and patiently. With its whimsical yet serious approach to good food, drink, and service, I get the feeling that Blu Wolf Bistro will be holding down this corner for a while. rochestercitynewspaper.com
RISES A FOUR-DAY FESTIVAL CELEBRATES THE LIFE AND LEGACY OF BLUES LEGEND EDDIE “SON” HOUSE [ PREVIEW ] BY DANIEL J. KUSHNER
The story of bluesman Eddie “Son” House — who once called Rochester home — is that of a 20th-century Moses. House spent years wandering the desert of obscurity, leading others into a promised land of recognition and cultural popularity that he would never experience for himself. But just one listen to songs like “My Black Mama” and his take on “John the Revelator” reveals House’s influence on groundbreaking figures Robert Johnson, Muddy Waters, and Howlin’ Wolf. These seminal bluesmen would go on to inspire such indispensable rock ‘n’ roll artists as The Rolling Stones, The Animals, The Yardbirds, and Led Zeppelin. 10 CITY AUGUST 19-25, 2015
But it was in Rochester that a group led by photographer, promoter, and Blues Hall of Fame member Dick Waterman — a champion of blues artists like Mississippi John Hurt, Sam “Lightnin’” Hopkins, Skip James, and “Bukka” White — rediscovered House in 1964 and subsequently became his manager. And so it is fitting that from Wednesday, August 26, through Saturday, August 29, Son House will get some long overdue attention when Geva Theatre Center presents the multi-disciplinary festival “Journey to the Son: A Celebration of Son House.” The fourday tribute will feature multiple concerts, films, workshops, lectures, and discussions, as well as a free public reading of the new play “Revival: The Resurrection of Son House” by playwright Keith Glover on Wednesday, August 26, at 8 p.m. The story of Son House is not just some isolated, interesting story, but rather one that is inextricably linked to the city of Rochester and the people who live here. “People in Rochester have a real sense of ownership over Son House’s story and his life and their relationships with Son,” says Jenni Werner, Geva’s literary director and resident dramaturg. “Their relationship with him still feels alive to them. Because of that, it does give us a level of resonance with the community. It allows us to have conversations with our community and to really build relationships that we haven’t built before.” It seems that people in Rochester fall into two disparate camps: those who recall Son House fondly, and those are completely unaware of his significance. “If you walked around in the town and you said, ‘Do you know who Son House is?’ people who knew Son would light up, and people who don’t would go, ‘What are you talking about? Who is this guy? He lived here?’” says Skip Greer, Geva’s director of education and artist-in-residence. “So we hope that this will help to bring a spotlight to his legacy.” Dan Beaumont, a University of Rochester professor, is perhaps the person most qualified
to speak about Son House’s story. Beaumont wrote the definitive biography “Preachin’ the Blues: The Life and Music of Son House,” published by Oxford University Press in 2011, and will be giving a lecture and participating in a panel discussion as part of Geva’s festivities. “This guy’s life was amazing, apart from his importance musically, in that from the standpoint of a story, a narrative, he had so many dramatic reversals in it,” Beaumont says. “Most of us do not have lives like this — where you’re a preacher, and then the next thing you know, you’re a bluesman.

And then you shoot someone, kill him, and you’re on Parchman Farm [Mississippi State Penitentiary]. You get off, you get released, and the next thing you know you got a record contract within a couple of months.” Born in 1902 and raised in the Mississippi Delta region, House had just started his career as a blues musician before it was temporarily interrupted by a twoyear stay in prison, served after purportedly killing a man in self-defense. After his release, House resumed playing the blues, recording songs for Paramount Records and the Library of Congress. In 1943, House moved to Rochester for work and subsequently stopped playing the blues, disillusioned by the deaths of his old friends. It wasn’t until Waterman and company found the man behind those old recordings that House restarted his blues career, beginning with the 1964 Newport Folk Festival. House moved to Detroit in 1976; he passed away there in 1988. Beaumont recalls that in the process of researching his book, he realized that seven of Son House’s friends and colleagues are subjects of their own biographies. Son House was clearly a man at the heart of the vibrant American musical legacy of the blues, and Beaumont is unequivocal about House’s relevance to that conversation. “Of all the musicians in the 60’s who were revived and rediscovered and all this, he was the most important — not only for his own music, but because he was a friend and peer of some of the most important musicians in pre-war Mississippi: Charlie Patton, Willie Brown, Robert Johnson,” Beaumont says. continues on page 27

quite the bar with its self-described genre of “super stoner rock.” But damn if they don’t reach it. At its core, this is a classic rock troupe coasting on high energy drums from Bob Pantella, frantically danceable rhythms, and a whole lot of catchy vocals from Chris Kosnik. Add on a thick layer of fuzzy dissonance and positively infectious basslines and you’ve got a recipe for some truly groovy tunes, fit for riotous moshing as much as it is redeyed couch lounging. — BY GINO FANELLI

Ben Morey, a grade school music teacher by day, indie rock purveyor by night, has long been making meaningful music in Rochester through such projects as The Wallpaper Singers and Dumb Angel. With his latest band, Howlo, and its self-titled debut — released on July 31 via City of Quality Records — Morey builds from the harmonic foundation and casual surf aesthetic of the Beach Boys while indulging in the catchy 90’s cool of bands like Weezer and Oasis. “Howlo” is anthemic pop-rock that’s perfect for a late-summer listen, and it plays like the East Coast counterpart to the music of Bethany Cosentino’s Best Coast. A collection brimming with hook-laden, midtempo songs buoyed by bassist Christine Benincasa and drummer Jane Bryant, the focus is clearly on the layered, rhythmic nuances of Morey and Justin Pulver’s guitars: jangly at times, crunchy at others, but always drenched in sun. There is a steady sweetness to Morey’s voice that makes the music supremely listenable. Standout tracks include the killer opener “Seeing Eye Dog,” “L.U.V.” with its impeccable retro-60’s groove, and the dreamy, delectable “Blanka.” The magic of “Howlo” is that it somehow manages to be both inherently fresh and profoundly nostalgic. — BY DANIEL J.

César Orozco & Kamarata Jazz “No Limits for Tumbao” Alfi Records cesarorozco.net
[ METAL ]
In the liner notes for his new album, pianist César Orozco retools the old Duke Ellington title to read, “It don’t mean a thing if it ain’t got that Tumbao.” Tumbao is an irresistible Afro-Cuban rhythm and on this CD, Orozco proves the accuracy of the title, “No Limits for Tumbao.” Tracks range from a Venezuelan folk tune to an original funk tune with plenty of Cuban-tinged music in between. Most songs are by Orozco and all are arranged by him. He’s in a unique position to create this music. Born and raised in Cuba, Orozco moved to Venezuela where he spent 14 years absorbing the music before moving to the United States. Orozco displays his superb keyboard prowess on every cut but he’s not the only star. Paquito D’Rivera plays a brilliant soprano sax solo on “Jorozco.” This is followed by a gorgeous electric bass solo by Rodner Padilla, who plays equally strong solos on several other tunes. And, on an album with rhythm at its core, drummer Euro Zambrano and percussionist Francisco Vielma are excellent. Perhaps the most surprising cut features Linda Briceno singing a wonderful version of “A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square.”

True story … I remember it like it was yesterday. It’s 1985 and a kid in a leather jacket and greasy hair walks into a record shop, searching for kicks. He was the only rockabilly kid in town, a lone wolf. New wave was in full swing and punk and garage were happening, but that desperate, degenerate driving rock ‘n’ roll he sought after was more obscure. He’d comb the record store bins throughout Rochester at the Record Archive, Record Time, The House of Guitars, and The Bop Shop for whatever he could get his paws on. It didn’t have to be exclusively rockabilly, just loud and fast and greasy. Then one day it hit him: the wildest record he’d ever heard. Colorblind James Experience guitarist Phil Marshall was day-giggin’ it at The Bop Shop selling records. He saw the greasy-haired kid in the leather jacket walk in, and with no fanfare or preamble — fully aware of the kid’s quest — Marshall dropped the needle in the groove. The speakers began to scream. That record was Barrence Whitfield and the Savages’ “Dig Yourself.” The kid was me. And like I said, it was the wildest record I’d ever heard. The loud guitar, the jungle drums, the wailin’ sax, all sat behind a dude who roared 14 CITY AUGUST 19-25, 2015
with a baritone shriek on a jagged cocktail of R&B, garage rock, and soul. The sound was haunted by the resurrected ghosts of cats like Screamin’ Jay Hawkins, James Brown, Little Richard, Esquerita, The Phantom, Otis Redding, Wilson Pickett, and Solomon Burke. Barrence Whitfield and the Savages. It shook me to my bones. The band got started in 1977 after then-Lyres
guitarist Peter Greenberg first heard Whitfield sing. Whitfield was working in a record shop while studying journalism at Boston University. The band earned a solid reputation for its explosive wild shows in and around Beantown. And before long Barrence Whitfield and the Savages were touring overseas and inking a deal with Rounder Records. Seeing Barrence Whitfield and the Savages live is thrilling and dangerous, like an hour long punch in the face or getting caught in a naked lady avalanche. It’s rockin’. It’s relentless. It’s gone. And the band is still at it with the release of its 13th platter, “Under The Savage Sky” (Bloodshot Records). It’s still got that trademark Savage soul but seems to be heading in more of a garage direction. Whitfield doesn’t necessarily disagree. “Peter, Tom, Phil, and Andy are from a garage background, pretty much,” Whitfield says. “I mean, Peter played with The Lyres and DMZ. The album has the same drive: rock ‘n’ roll, rhythm and blues, soul. There are some really cool tunes. It’s got its humor. It’s got its fun.” Though it comes on manic, lyrically, “Under The Savage Sky” has something to say. “It’s got some poignant songs about guys having trouble functioning in the world,”
Whitfield says. “Like the boxer in the tune ‘Angry Hands’ who can’t get over being a boxer and he still has these angry hands to worry about. Then there’s the guy in ‘Incarcerated Casserole’ whose wife is in jail and he doesn’t know how to cook and he wants to eat, he can’t clean up the house, he’s at a loss for everything.” But then there are future classics like “The Claw,” which sounds like it could have been done by The Sonics. Funny I should mention that… “We did a tour earlier this year with The Sonics,” Whitfield says. “Inspiration grew between the two bands and we became great friends. The tour was just unbelievable. They’re guys we’ve worshipped, and we were partying with them, jamming with them.” Influences like The Sonics run rampant
throughout the band’s whole catalogue. “I was raised on the radio,” Whitfield says. “I was able to listen to a lot of great music when I was a young man, 50’s soul, 60’s R&B, and garage rock.” Still the “p” word gets tossed around. Whitfield understands why some fans equate his band with punk. “Weeeelll …” he says, “I think because of the way we deliver the sound. We go for the throat every time we hit that stage. We’re like boxers coming out for the kill, or a buzz saw. We just turn it up and come at ya. You show up to our show and we’ve got you for 75 minutes, maybe an hour and a half, and we’ve got you by the throat, dragging you around like a rag doll, and by the end of the show, you’ve caught religion from The Savages.” At 60 years old, Whitfield is still going strong: climbing all over the stage and writhing on the floor like a man possessed. But he has a dream of doing a soul record like Otis Redding’s 1965 “The Great Otis Redding Sings Soul Ballads,” and he demurs when it’s suggested that all Whitfield’s records are, in fact, soul records. “I don’t know,” he says. “You know how as you get older you keep going back further? I don’t get to hear a lot of new things. I’m always listening to a lot of jazz, a lot of avant-garde and blues.” And he’s got the end figured out. Whitfield quotes The Blond Bomber, Ronnie Dawson, from his 1959 song “Rockin’ Bones.” “When I die, buried six foot deep / With a rock ‘n’ roll record at my feet / A phonograph needle in my hand / I’m gonna rock my way right out of this land” “With the record spinning ’round and ‘round,” Whitfield says. “I’m gonna rock my way right out of this land and onto heaven. That’s how I’m gonna go.”

ROCK | LIFE IN FILM
IRISH | DALLAHAN
Using bright, jangly guitars, bouncing bass, and danceable drum grooves, Life in Film has created an infectious indie pop sound that wants to soundtrack the summer. The East London quartet released its debut studio album, “Here It Comes,” earlier this year, and the single “Get Closer” has been getting a heavy spin on American radio — it’ll make you roll down the windows on a sunny afternoon drive. WZNE 94.1 is hosting the show at the Bug Jar and pre-sale tickets are only 94 cents.
Dallahan has a reputation for the weight of its talents. The band already has a slew of awards, both for the individuals in the band (BBC Young Traditional Musician of the Year Award 2013, All Britain Banjo Champion in 2006, to name a couple) and their combined chops (Emerging Excellence Award from Help Musicians UK). The band is a rising star of the traditional music scene, with original material, as well as its arrangements of classic Irish tunes, that captivates audiences by translating the fun the members are having onstage into the enjoyment of the listener.

Most music critics will tell you that The Allman Brothers Band was the pioneering Southern rock band, the kick-ass ambassadors of Dixie whose efforts paved the way for groups like Lynyrd Skynyrd. After the Allman Brothers Band finally called it quits and displayed the message, “So stay calm, eat a peach, and carry on” at its last show, members including co-founder Gregg Allman went their separate ways. Lead singer Allman is royalty who has stayed the course with the blues, jazz, and country tinged jam band aesthetic that earned him a path to rock ‘n’ roll immortality. Allman’s current group features nine musicians that deliver tunes from his solo albums and songs from The Allman Brothers Band catalog. The Doobie Brothers will also play.

Artist Lea Rizzo touches up a tattoo in her studio at The Yards collaborative art space in the Public Market. PHOTOS BY MARK CHAMBERLIN
Fantasy on flesh and façade Lea Rizzo VISIT ARTBYLEA.NET FOR MORE INFORMATION OR TO MAKE A TATTOO APPOINTMENT WITH THE ARTIST [ PROFILE ] BY REBECCA RAFFERTY
Every time I see Lea Rizzo, the artist and single mom is buzzing with slightly frazzled energy but still somehow has a dose of sunshine for everyone. She has a sensitive and loving nature, and stays busy with her own projects between her practice as a tattoo artist, collaborating with artist friends, helping run The Yards collaborative art space, and caring for her 10-year-old son, Collin. Rizzo’s illustrations and collages typically feature pin-ups and burlesque babes or fantastical characters, usually involving mermaids, nymphs, or naughty children with woodland creature features. A member of the Sweat Meat Co. artist collective and an essential part of the support for the annual WALL\THERAPY street art festival (and 2013 muralist), Rizzo has carved out a steady space for herself within the Rochester arts community. Rizzo was born and raised in Rochester except for a few early years spent in California after her parents divorced. She moved to Pennsylvania to attend the Art Institute of Pittsburgh, but took an indirect path toward fine art. “I thought advertising would be practical,” she says.
After graduation, Rizzo immediately sank her teeth into the commercial art world, working for a t-shirt company that involved Marvel-licensed characters, before moving to Atlanta and working directly with a designer for Carter’s, an upscale children’s clothing company. “That was great,” she says. “I was 26 and traveled a ton, to buy things and gather inspiration from different cities,” and visit textile mills. But it was a corporate setting, which didn’t suit her in the long run. “I made a lot of money there, and it was a great city to live in,” she says. She’s grateful for the opportunities she’s had: “every quarter there’s the same student, with the same portfolio, wanting the same job. To find something in the commercial field right away was good. But in the end, the money didn’t even matter, and the stuff that I got to do lost its luster.” Rizzo dropped out of the design world and moved to New Orleans, and traveled for a while after that, before returning to Rochester to learn the art of tattooing from her brother and some friends who worked in the field. Rizzo has worked at Lady Luck Tattoo in Canandaigua for the past decade, before recently starting a solo practice in her studio at The Yards. But before that, she participated in “Horses on Parade,” collaborating with her mother in painting three of the blank equine sculptures. At the art show held for the artists involved in the project, Rizzo was approached by someone who was organizing visual art
SOUTH WEDGE area businesses & restaurants
shows at Bug Jar, which led to Rizzo’s involvement in monthly exhibitions.
Paid for in part by the Business Association of the South Wedge Area.
Just around 10 years ago, Collin entered
Rizzo’s life, who is the frequent subject of her sweet and spirited child-animal hybrid portraits, drawing inspiration from the behavior of real animals like mischievous raccoons, and stories like Peter Pan. She says she thinks of Max in “Where the Wild Things Are” as an endearment of difficult behavior as kids grow up. She also draws inspiration from “The Little Rascals” nostalgia. “It’s so funny to me,” she says. “They do a lot of things that are like adults. Spanky had a nightclub!” Rizzo works mainly with oil pastels or colored pencils and mixed media on paper, and collaged pieces in shadowboxes, incorporating all manner of scavenged materials and surfaces for her art. Tattooing is really intimate and personal (though arguably public, if the owner shows off their inked art), while public art is created in a fishbowl environment and by definition belongs to the masses. But Rizzo takes it all in stride. “It’s nice to share. It’s nice for people to see processes, especially if they like your work. But it’s still kind of vulnerable, because your back is to people.” Viewers sometimes watch for a long time without announcing their presence, and some photograph working artists without their knowledge or permission, all of which can be disconcerting. Every artist who works outdoors feel differently about this; some prefer to stay focused and not socialize, while others welcome conversation. It’s important to remember that street artists are professionals at work, and though accessible, viewers should act with respect. Rizzo plans to create more murals, and challenge herself to work on a larger scale than she ever has. She was inspired by visiting artist Handidan’s tactile-application of paper and glue to wall at South Clinton Avenue and Meigs Street, and loves the idea of getting her hands dirty. “I’ve been scheming with a friend to make our own oil bars,” she says. As she looks forward, Rizzo reflects upon and draws inspiration from what she and her friends have accomplished, with regards to founding and running The Yards, supporting WALL\THERAPY, and collaborating on intricate installations and mural projects. “It just feels so good, because you sort of approach it with such a naïve sense, not realizing what you’re doing.” Currently, Rizzo and The Yards group are busy planning the annual Spectral Carnival, which will take place October 9 and 10 at St. Joseph’s Park. To see more of Rizzo’s art, visit the online version of this story.

History proves you can’t go wrong with burgers, ribs, and beer. In line with that, the Great American Backyard Burger & Rib Festival is a three-day celebration of those simple pleasures. Local eateries Red Osier Burgers, SwillBurger, Tapas 177, The Owl House, and more will be serving burgers and ribs in Martin Luther King Jr. Park beginning 12 p.m. Friday. Music will be provided by local bluesman Joe Beard, and local blues bands Dan Schmitt and the Shadows, Jeff Cosco, The BBQ Band, and the Tom Passamonte Band. To top that off, both Friday and Saturday will see headlining sets from rhythm and blues workhorses The Coupe de Villes. The festival also features a handful of competitions, like the “Burger Pro Competition” (an amateurs competition will also be held), the Best Ribs of Rochester competition (also open to amateurs), and for the real Rochesterian, a Nick Tahou Garbage Plate Eating Competition. The Great American Backyard Burger and Ribs Festival will be held at Martin Luther King Jr. Park (353 Court Street), on Friday August 21, through Sunday, August 23. 12 p.m. to 9 p.m. both Friday and Saturday, and 12 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Sunday.

for the aspiring producer. And the rest, as they say, is history … … Except when it isn’t. It’s worth remembering that “Straight Outta Compton” isn’t a documentary, so while you distinctly recall a half-dozen men on the album cover, only five get any real time in the sun here. (Later for you, Arabian Prince!) N.W.A’s unofficial sixth man in this film is fast-talking manager Jerry Heller (Paul Giamatti, bringing depth and velour track suits to a mildly villainous role), who befriends Eazy and guides him through the perils of the record industry, increasingly to the exclusion of the rest of N.W.A. But Dre, Cube, Ren, and Yella are too busy crafting what they call “reality rap,” angry anthems that reflect the racism and harassment they and their peers (and now their descendants, sadly) encounter on a daily basis, most notably at the hands of those who have otherwise pledged to protect and serve. And as the legendary track “Fuck Tha Police” gains national attention, N.W.A finds itself in the proverbial crosshairs of law enforcement agencies, demonstrated by an exhilarating set piece in which N.W.A defies the orders of Detroit’s finest by performing the song in a 1989 gig at the Joe Louis Arena. It’s not long after Detroit that financial beef drives a wedge between the suspicious Cube and the slippery Heller, signaling the beginning of the end as N.W.A and the gone-solo Cube spit venomously clever dis rhymes at each other, Dre

forms Death Row Records with noted sociopath Suge Knight (R. Marcos Taylor, in a monstrous turn), and Eazy tries to keep the gravy train on track before succumbing to complications from AIDS in 1995. “Straight Outta Compton” lags a bit whenever anyone stops to discuss dull business stuff, but that’s mostly because it pales in comparison to the first part of the film — basically an origin story assembling the Avengers of Crenshaw Boulevard — which is so tight that it makes the nearly two-and-ahalf-hour running time zip by. The film pretty much glosses over the more troubling aspects of N.W.A’s legacy — the charges of anti-Semitism, homophobia, and famously violent misogyny — its apparent agenda is to ensure that the late Eazy-E takes his rightful place in rap history alongside Dre and Cube. Director F. Gary Gray (he and Cube made 1995’s sleeper hit “Friday” together; bye, Felicia!) gets a fantastically nuanced — and often hilarious — performance out of the previously unknown Jason Mitchell, anchoring the film as the smart, ambitious, but ultimately tragic Eazy. And though Corey Hawkins falls short of Dre’s magnetism, O’Shea Jackson Jr. absolutely nails his father’s cadence, delivery, and expressions, most notably that sarcastic sneer typically rippling across Cube’s face. Simply put, you don’t need to be an N.W.A fan to appreciate this gritty, inspiring rags-to-riches tale. But who doesn’t dig on N.W.A?
The journalistic relationship between interviewer and interviewee is complex, delicate, and often precarious. On one hand, writer and subject are simply strangers making conversation — as benignly normal a situation as one can imagine. But they’ve each been forcibly entered into this exchange, by necessity bringing their own (often opposing) agendas to the table. The writer has an editor to please, one who’s looking for their employee to pry some compelling information from the subject; meanwhile the subject is tasked with selling themselves for publicity, which will in turn make their further success possible. The interviewee wants to maintain a semblance of privacy, while accepting the knowledge that their responses will be judged (sometimes harshly) by the general public once the interview hits newsstands. Step wrong, and there’s a good chance readers will eat you alive. Let me tell you: as a writer, the interviewing process is a constant, desperate struggle. Boo hoo, writing is hard. “The End of the Tour” examines this precise relationship, in this particular

case between writer David Lipsky and author David Foster Wallace. Based on Lipsky’s book, “Although Of Course You End Up Becoming Yourself,” about his experience of interviewing Wallace, director James Ponsoldt (“The Spectacular Now,” “Smashed”) and screenwriter Donald Margulies handle the material with a brutal honesty and insight. Given a probationary job at Rolling Stone, Lipsky (Jesse Eisenberg) is assigned to spend five days with Wallace (Jason Segel) as he completes the last leg of his book tour following the release — and massive success — of his postmodern epic, “Infinite Jest.” Lipsky will travel to Wallace’s home in Illinois, where the author lives and teaches creative writing at Illinois State University, then accompany him to Minneapolis for his last stop on the tour. The film unfolds as a road trip variation on “My Dinner with Andre,” in which a discussion about life and art unfurls not over a single dinner, but over the course of several days spent in airplanes, over meals of McDonald’s and gas station junk food, and at one point while wandering through the Mall of America. Unlike that earlier film, the participants aren’t close friends catching up, but strangers forced into a relationship that has the deceptive outside appearance of intimacy. That Lipsky is himself an author, whose recently released book “The Art Fair” was met mostly with indifference, colors their talks with an undercurrent of jealousy. Each of us desire some sort of recognition that we’re doing good work, and in many ways Lipsky wants exactly what Wallace already has. Wallace himself is uncomfortable talking about his newfound fame, feeling as though he’s betraying his integrity and selling out by even participating in an interview. Though candid in many

Heinrich is a melancholy young poet in Romantic Era Berlin who determines his best way out of despair is to end it all. Recently diagnosed with a terminal illness, Henrietta, fascinated by Heinrich’s controversial “The Marquise of O,” finds his plan intriguing, and she agrees to navigate the uncharted journey towards a suicide pact with him. Amour Fou—inspired by the actual suicide in 1811 of Heinrich von Kleist and Henriette Vogel—goes against expectations to become a wry and curious denunciation of dying for love. (Jessica Hausner, Austria/Luxembourg/Germany 2014, 96 min., DCP, German w/ subtitles)
respects, he often turns cagey during his conversations with Lipsky, eying the blinking red light of his profiler’s tape recorder with a great deal of suspicion. Margulies captures the charged push and pull in these exchanges, as Lipsky receives pressure from his editor (Ron Livingston) to bring up Wallace’s depression and address rumors of addiction — because that’s where the real story is. Their talks swing between intimate and invasive, and as the days go on, the conversation turns passive-aggressive as their subtle jabs at one another turn increasingly less so. In a rare dramatic role, Jason Segel doesn’t so much impersonate David Foster Wallace as inhabit him, adopting the persona of someone who’s achieved a level of success most people have no hope of ever attaining, but finds he still wants something more. There’s been some discussion about the accuracy of the film’s portrayal of Wallace, with friends and family of the author saying that the portrayal bears little resemblance to the man they knew. I can understand those objections, but you could change the names of its characters and the film would be just as true in its ideas about loneliness, depression, and the male ego. Segel brings the author to life as a human being, even if that person isn’t specifically the David Foster Wallace those who knew him remember. Eisenberg is a polarizing performer, and he uses his prickly screen persona to his advantage here, portraying Lipsky as an ingratiating and often unlikeable presence, never more so than during a scene where he berates his girlfriend (Anna Chlumsky), after her phone call with Wallace goes on longer than Lipsky feels appropriate. Beneath it all, we sense the envy the writer feels as he’s forced to confront the realization that the level of success Wallace has achieved will in all likelihood remain just beyond his grasp.

Beaumont is quick to maintain that the role of the blues is not to tell a narrative, per se. “The preacher, he doesn’t tell you the story of Moses crossing the Red Sea,” Beaumont says, “he assumes everybody in the church knows it. What he says is, ‘Here is the significance of this story for your lives today.’” Beaumont refers to the blues as secular scripture. “But it’s just everyday life, and that’s why the audience can relate to it — about being broke, being bored, breaking up, moving on,” he says. The Son House festival was made possible
by a 2013 Cultural Creative Collision grant from the Max and Marian Farash Charitable Foundation. Through the development of this distinctive arts celebration, Geva further developed its relationships with local institutions like the George Eastman House and House of Guitars, while also working with national organizations such as The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Mississippi Blues Foundation, which approved the August 28 dedication of a Mississippi Blues Trail Marker at the sight of Son House’s former home in Corn Hill. At its core, this commemorative exploration of Son House is a fulfillment of Geva’s primary goal in the community. “We’re a company of storytellers,” Werner says. “And Son House’s story is amazing and dramatic and conflicted and passionate. That’s the exact kind of story that you want to tell.” Son House’s pivotal role in shaping the blues will be elucidated not just in formal talks, but also in ticketed concerts given by notable musicians: Billy Thompson, the musical director of Glover’s play “Revival”; John Hammond; local blues favorite Joe Beard; Chris Thomas King; and John Mooney, who learned directly from Son House himself. And yet at the heart of the Son House celebration is Geva’s commission of the Keith Glover play, “Revival: The Resurrection of Son House.” The work connects House’s origins in Mississippi to his extended stay in Rochester — which lasted more than 20 years — and the relaunch of his music career. “We’re committed to telling stories about Rochester and stories that impact Rochester,” Werner says. “And because Son House was one of Rochester’s adopted sons,

Glover was always at the forefront of the list. “It was the music of my uncles and my aunts and my grandmother and my grandfather,” Glover, who was born in Alabama and raised in New York City, says of the blues. “It connected you to something bigger.” A musician himself and the author of the music-driven dramas “Thunder Knocking on the Door” and “Jazzland,” Glover has always found music to be an important tool to utilize as a storyteller and engage the audience on an emotional level. “English was not my first language,” Glover says. “Music was my first language. When I go back to music, it’s an easier language for me to speak.” In addressing the character of Son House, who will be portrayed by Tony-winning actor Cleavant Derricks, Glover notes an important dichotomy at work. “There’s so much about duality in this — the spiritual with the profane; the sacred and the profane. That was so much a part of Son, so that guides us here, musically.” Glover sees his plays as the sheet music, and his actors as the band. “Son House is not gonna walk through the door,” he says. “The essence of Son, the transcendence of Son, the sound of Son is gonna come through, but it’s gonna be transformed through the actor … I did my first opera years ago, and a guy was telling me, ‘Let me tell you what Mozart thought.’ And I was like, ‘Don’t tell me, man. Play the shit.’ You know? But the moment you play it, now you know what he’s thinking.” It is clear that Glover actively tries to eschew an agenda for asserting his own particular views, opting instead to let his muse speak for himself. “That’s what kills it, you know, when you got a writer who’s sittin’ up there and tells you, ‘Let me tell you about how these black people are living in Clybourne Park. Let me tell you who they are,’” Glover says. “That’s when it gets f***ed up, you know, because you’re trying to speak for them. I’m not trying to speak for Son … my job is, we talk about a question about the human experience, but also to lead you toward the f***in’ music.” Son House’s Delta blues slide guitar technique and world-weary vocal style comprise a blues masterclass unto themselves — magnetic, emotive, and grounded in the harsh realities of life. “When people sat and saw Son House, they saw something that was not polite,” Glover says. “They were shaken to the core by Son House. Now I’m writing a play about it; I gotta take the vibe of that.”
In deciding who would be best equipped
his story feels like something that we need to celebrate and raise his legacy locally.”

One of the many things I have come to appreciate through writing these columns is that every house has a story, and this house is no exception. Located at the corner of Aberdeen and Woodbine it is one of the most recognizable homes in the 19th Ward neighborhood. John H. Odenbach, a prominent local businessman, commissioned J. Foster Warner to design this unique and completely fireproof Mediterranean Revival home in 1927 (the only wood in the whole house is the stair handrail). After the Odenbach estate sold the house, the new owners, Charles and Lillian Nail, dreamed up the distinctive two-story solarium in 1981, bringing the house to a full four stories in height. Beneath the shallow tiled entry overhang, a substantial front door with an elaborate wrought iron screen opens to the grand foyer. The floors throughout are a varied mix of intricately patterned linoleum tile, stone, and ceramic tile. At the rear of the foyer is the powder room with original full height tile walls and floors, the grand marble and wrought iron stair to the upper floors, and separate whimsical basement stair. The large living room to the left is lit at opposite ends by banks of leaded glass steel casement windows and a plethora of original light fixtures. The room and the adjacent library are embellished with decorative plaster walls and ceilings (found throughout the first floor) as well as built-in bookcases and a distinctive fireplace. To the right of the foyer the generous and well-lit dining room features more original
light fixtures and provides access to the kitchen and breakfast nook, which leads to an open veranda. The updated kitchen has a generous amount of cabinet and counter space and provides access to the large rear porch and original detached two-car garage. The second floor features three bedrooms, a shared bath, a large enclosed porch currently used as second floor laundry, and a master suite with its own private exterior porch. Original features are found nearly everywhere, from light fixtures to hand-painted window surrounds, but most distinctive of all are the faux-bois metal doors painted to mimic mahogany with elaborate stenciling and inlay. On the third floor a maid’s quarters gives way to the two-story solarium addition. The soaring glass ceiling and spiral staircase lead you to the fourth floor balcony and the superb rooftop deck with city skyline views and a constant cooling breeze. The large basement recreation rooms with full height windows, fireplace, and terrazzo floors complete this 3,960 square foot architectural marvel. Words do not do this one-of-a-kind home justice. For more information contact realtor Carmelie Diamond of ROC City Realty at (585) 414-9220 and make this historic home yours for $209,999. by Christopher Brandt Christopher is a longtime Landmark Society volunteer and blogs about his own historic home at www.myperfectlittlemoneypit.com.

In Foreclosure New York State Law requires that we send you this notice about the foreclosure process. Please read it carefully. Mortgage foreclosure is a complex process. Some people may approach you about “saving” your home. You should be extremely careful about any such promises. The State encourages you to become informed about your options in foreclosure. There are government agencies, legal aid entities and other non-profit organizations that you may contact for information about foreclosure while you are working with your lender during this process. To locate an entity near you, you may call the toll-free helpline maintained by the New York State Banking Department at 1-877-BANKNYS (1877-226-5697) or visit the Department’s website at www.banking.state. ny.us.

Fun [ NEWS OF THE WEIRD ] BY CHUCK SHEPHERD
Pets of the 1 Percent
“The worshipful treatment of pets may be the thing that unites all Americans,” wrote an Atlantic Magazine blogger in July, describing the luxury terminal for animals under construction at New York’s JFK airport. The ARK will offer shower stalls for traveling horses, “conjugal stations” for ever-horny penguins, and housing for nearly 200 cows (that might produce 5,000 pounds of manure every day) — and passengers traveling with dogs or cats can book the Paradise 4 Paws pet-pampering resort. The ARK is a for-profit venture; said one industry source, quoted in a July Crain’s New York Business report, “You hear stories about the crazy money that rich people spend on their (animals) ... they’re mostly true.”
At a traffic stop in Rockingham, Vermont, on July 26, both driver and passenger were charged with DUI. Erik Polite, 35, was the driver (clocked at 106 mph on Interstate 91 and, according to police, with drugs in the car), and while he was being screened for intoxication, passenger Leeshawn Baker, 34, jumped behind the wheel and peeled off in reverse across the highway, nearly hitting the trooper, who arrested him. Nathaniel Harrison, 38, was arrested in July in a Phoenix suburb on several charges, including possession of a deadly weapon during a felony, but he escaped an even more serious charge when a second “deadly weapon” failed to engage. Harrison reportedly
intended to retaliate against a “snitch” and arrived at the man’s home carrying a rattlesnake, which he supposedly pointed at the man, hoping it would bite him. However, the snake balked, and Harrison’s attempted payback failed. Lame Defenses in Lake County, Florida: (1) Daniel Baker, 40, and Robert Richardson, 19, were arrested in Altoona, Florida, in August after getting caught loading appliances from a vacant house. According to the arrest report, both men appeared incredulous to learn that items in a vacant house aren’t just “free.” (2) Six days earlier about 20 miles away in Tavares, Florida, Corey Ramsey, 23, was arrested for burglary when a police officer caught him sitting on a toilet in a vacant, for-sale house attending to a need. Ramsey’s extensive pettycrime rap sheet belied his explanation for being there — that he was contemplating buying the $299,000 house and wanted to try it out first.
Still More “Intelligent Design”?
Zoologists at the University of Basel in Switzerland, publishing recently in a prestigious British journal, reported the likelihood that a certain flatworm species has overcome the frustration of not finding a mating partner in its lifetime. The scientists believe the flatworm exploits its hermaphroditic qualities and injects its sperm into its own head, from which the sperm sometimes migrates to its reproductive facilities. (Flatworm researchers are aided on their projects by the species’ transparent bodies, facilitating the tracking of the sperm.)
[ LAST WEEK’S SOLUTION ON PAGE 28 ]
[ LOVESCOPE ] BY EUGENIA LAST ARIES (March 21-April 19): Don’t settle for second-best or a lover who doesn’t make you excited about a future together. You can do better if you hold out for the partner who has and wants to contribute as much as you. Love has to be a two-way street to work. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Let your focus be showing off your intellect and charm. Use words to entice someone you fancy, and allow him or her to be drawn into the person you are and the things you enjoy, not how you look or how much you own. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You’ll attract plenty of attention
with your appearance, flare and independence, but when it comes to following through with any innuendoes you have made, you are likely to have a change of heart and lose interest quickly. Don’t lead anyone on if you don’t want to look bad. CANCER (June 21-July 22): You are likely to meet someone through work, travel, educational pursuits or online dating. Someone from an entirely different background than you will pique your interest and give you plenty to talk about. You’ll soon discover that for all your differences, you think very much the same way.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Being forward and showing aggressive action will not go over well with someone you are trying to attract. Back off and wait for someone to approach you. It’s important to let relationships develop naturally. If you are too overbearing, you will push away the one you love. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Talk about your plans. Think big, and offer insight into who you are and what your dreams might be. Invite the person who shows interest in your plans to help you flush out your ideas, and you will discover you have more in common than you realize.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Show off a little. Offer your services and jump into the spotlight. You’ll be hard to resist if you express your ideas and are passionate about what you do. You’ll have plenty of options when it comes to partners. Check your motives and choose wisely. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Share your thoughts, and follow through with your promises. It’s your dedication and concern to help a cause you believe in that will bring someone special into your life. Jump at the chance to be with someone just as unique and mysterious as you.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Your actions and the response you receive from someone you meet will appear to be genuine and heading in the right direction, but when it comes to a mental connection, you’ll hit a stalemate that will deter you from reaching a common denominator when it comes to love. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): What you have will attract someone who would like a piece of whatever you’ve got. Be reluctant to be too open about your personal finances or investments. Listen and make sure that whoever interests you can match up to you mentally,
physically and emotionally. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Let your emotions lead the way. Love is on the rise, and getting out and meeting people who are as imaginative as you will lead to a magical encounter that can bring about a change to the way or where you live. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You’ll be drawn to individuals who are passionate about what they do. People who offer an unusual lifestyle and an interesting point of view regarding home and family are best for you. Picture how you fit into to the vision you are offered and if it feels right go for it.
