Highland doctors grieve with the community

The residents of the Highland Hospital Family Medicine Program are deeply saddened by the recent violence in our community. Some of us have been part of the Rochester community our whole lives, while others have just joined it, but each one of us now calls this city our home. We are grieved by the loss of three young lives outside of the Boys & Girls Club and the loss of a police officer in the line of duty. Highland Family Medicine and Brown Square exist to serve our community. As part of that commitment, we support respect for each other and stand against violence. Cry! Shout! Sing out against the violence in our community. We all have voices that deserve to be heard. During difficult times like this, it is natural to feel grief, fear, anger, despair, or numbness. The doors of these offices are always open to those who would like to speak to someone about this or any other experience. We encourage you to use your physician as a resource in your community. We are here for you. Highland Family Medicine honors the lives that were lost and we continue to serve the family and friends they left behind. DR. MEGAN BETTELEY WANG

Hold students to higher standards

The Rochester City School District wants to lower the standards for students so they are not suspended. This is ridiculous. They should be held to higher standards because THAT is what will be expected of them in the work force. It may not be fair, but it is reality.

I was at the opening night as I have several friends in this production. It was a great night.

A civics test for readers: is Clinton ‘qualified’? Let me ask you something: What, in your opinion, are the qualifications for serving as president? A couple of weeks ago, a reader called to challenge me about my recent “Waiting for Hillary” column – in particular, my insistence that Hillary Clinton “is certainly qualified” for the presidency. While he often agrees with my columns, the reader said, that one left him baffled. Would I, he urged, tell him specifically what I see that makes her qualified? He wasn’t the only reader who asked me that question. And the issue popped up on the second Republican debate, with Carly Fiorina’s cutesy, much-quoted “If you want to stump a Democrat, ask them to name an accomplishment of Hillary Clinton.” Partisan politics aside, it’s a topic worth thinking about. What do we think are the qualifications for president? And does Clinton have them? You can do your own research about Clinton, but I’ll give you my thoughts. Let me say first that I’m not at all enthusiastic about Clinton. I wish someone better were running. As I mentioned in that September 9 column, I’m becoming convinced that she can’t be elected – and that if she is, she’ll run into the same Republican obstruction in Congress that has plagued Obama. That’s not good for anybody. I’m also not happy about some of her positions on important issues, particularly her militaristic tendency. But I do think she’s qualified. She’s smart, and she’s well educated. She has had extensive, significant experience in a variety of publicpolicy areas – in Arkansas government, in the Clinton White House, in the US Senate, and in the State Department. She knows people, in Congress and in foreign affairs, and they know her. She has management experience. She’s a longtime advocate on issues affecting women and children. Her early career included working for the Children’s Defense Fund, serving on the staff of the committee that advised the House Judiciary Committee during the Watergate investigation, and teaching law and running legal clinics for the poor in Arkansas. During Bill Clinton’s several terms as governor of Arkansas, she continued her efforts related to poverty and also chaired the state’s Educational Standards Committee. When he became president, she was an exceptionally active First Lady, chairing his Task Force on National Health Care Reform, advocating on health care and poverty issues, helping create the Office on Violence Against Women in the Department of Justice, and traveling around the world, advocating for women’s rights.

Partisan politics aside, what do we think are the qualifications for president? And does Hillary Clinton have them?”

As a US Senator, she may not have had her name on groundbreaking legislation, but she was active and hardworking – respected, if I’m remembering correctly, by Republicans and Democrats. And, of course, she was Obama’s Secretary of State. You can find negatives in that career, obviously. She has to bear heavy responsibility for the failure of the Clinton health-care reform. And while Republicans are obsessing over Benghazi, some Democrats criticize her tenure at State, too. Finer minds than mine will have to pass judgment on the Benghazi tragedy. But on the whole, I agree with the assessment of a 2013 Foreign Affairs article, which called her “a highly competent secretary of state, but not a great one.” And, by the way, one of her Republican predecessors, Henry Kissinger, went further, saying Clinton “ran the State Department in the most effective way that I’ve ever seen.” This is a complicated country facing enormous challenges in a very complicated world. The Republican candidates include not only several people with dubious qualifications but also some whose opinions on science, foreign policy, health care, and the constitution are, frankly, frightening. And in my humble opinion, any of them would take us down a very destructive path. Having a Democrat succeed Barack Obama, then, is critical. I hope the Democrats don’t choose Hillary Clinton as their candidate, but her qualifications aren’t the reason for my concern. Not every president is Abraham Lincoln.



Shooting suspect identified

Johnny Blackshell, 21, of Chili, has been charged in the August 19 shooting on Genesee Street that killed three and injured seven. The shooting occurred outside the Boys & Girls Club, and Blackshell has pleaded not guilty. At a press conference announcing the charges, Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren presented new initiatives to combat violence, including a possible urban violence summit with other New York mayors.

The first fight around a new national photonics institute is over, and it looks like everyone got a little bit of something. After a highly visible public quarrel between local leaders and SUNY Polytechnic Institute officials, Governor Andrew Cuomo stepped in. The business offices will go in Legacy Tower, while companies, incubator space, and a workforce development center will be in the Sibley Building. A building at Eastman Business Park will be the institute’s key manufacturing space.

Federal prosecutor Preet Bharara is digging into the state’s Buffalo Billion, according to media reports.

The state will own and equip the facility and the national company Solar City will use it to build solar panels.

Andersen® - The most trusted name in windows and doors

The station will be located in the City of Rochester. WEPL’s format will lean heavily on Latin Tropical — salsa, merengue, bachata — and Latin pop to reflect the listening interests of the Rochester market, Burgos says, which is mainly made up of people of Caribbean descent. “But it will also draw on the traditional guitar and big band Latin music of the 1950’s,” she says. Though music is WEPL’s main component, Burgos says that the station will also reach the Rochester area’s growing Latino market with information about health, education, and events important to the community. “They will hear music from popular artists like Marc Anthony and Shakira,” she says, “and then we will drop in health bits like, ‘Here’s how to cook a healthy meal.’”

It’s a formula that has been used successfully by popular Latin stations such as La Mega in New York City, El Zol in Miami, and Zeta in Puerto Rico. Julio Saenz, WEPL’s station manager, founded ConXion, a local Latino newspaper that he later sold. Local musician and producer Hector Arguinzoni will host the Monday through Friday afternoon drive-time programming and radio DJ Nemesio Martinez will host Sunday Traditional Island Music. Saenz says that WEPL will reach the 65,000 Latinos in Rochester, as well as non-Latinos who enjoy the culture and music. The station will live stream its broadcast, which means that WEPL will be able to reach listeners in Buffalo, Syracuse, and the Finger Lakes. “Rochester makes sense because we have the largest Latino community in the state outside of New York City,” Saenz says.

Unions have always been built on the notion that there’s strength in numbers, but the last 30 years have seen escalating anti-union rhetoric and laws, as well as declines in union workplaces. No union is big enough to go it alone.


New Labor Federation leader Dan Maloney says he wants America to make things. Manufacturing is the best way, he says, to rev up the US economy. Maloney, president of UAW Local 1097 for nine years, has recently been named president of the Rochester-Genesee Valley Area Labor Federation, too. His goals in the new job include improving organizing, messaging, and recruiting efforts among the region’s unions. But he says that he also wants to build support for policies that encourage domestic manufacturing growth. When a company makes and sells a car, for example, he says, it’s not just putting a product on a showroom floor. It is also buying metal, glass, radios, and scores of other components and parts from other companies, he says. So that one car provides jobs for the people who sell it, build it, and make the materials and parts that go into it. “It’s an upward economic spiral when you increase manufacturing,” Maloney says. One way to bolster support for domestic manufacturing, he says, is through political activism. Maloney says that he wants to make sure that union members know where candidates stand on issues such as trade policy, government support for promising technology, and infrastructure investment. He also wants more union members to run

Boose strikes back Don’t put the Northwest City Council race to bed just yet. A petition filed in State Supreme Court last Thursday asks for an expanded audit of the voting machines used in the race between Molly Clifford and LaShana Boose. Unofficial results from the September 10 Democratic primary election showed Clifford besting Boose by 42 votes. Clifford’s lead jumped to 66 votes after most of the absentee ballots were counted. But Boose’s petition says that “the discrepancy between the 42-vote lead on September 10, 2015, and the 66-vote lead on September 14, 2015, justifies an expanded audit.” Tom Ferrarese, Democratic commissioner for the Monroe County Board of Elections, says that the petition is baseless. “I’ve never heard of anything so ridiculous in my life,” he says. “The machine count was 42. When you take in the absentee ballots that were counted that night, it went to 66. There’s no discrepancy. It’s been on the [Board of Elections] website since day one.” The commissioners hand-count all of the ballots in 3 percent of the machines after the election, Ferrarese says, to make sure that the machines counted correctly. (The machines are chosen randomly.) And they were fine, he says. But the Boose camp wants more of the machines audited. “I’m just absolutely appalled,” Ferrarese says.

A path out of poverty A progress report released last week by the Rochester-Monroe Anti-Poverty Initiative includes some heavy lifts. For one, the efforts outlined in the report will undoubtedly require significant funding. And the report says that the Rochester region needs to mitigate societal factors, such as structural racism, that keep people in poverty — no simple task. But the group’s biggest challenge may be to convince a community jaded by decades of dead-end reports and failed initiatives to believe one more time. “The report in and of itself is another report,” says Leonard Brock, the Initiative’s director. “It’s what we do, how we respond as a community that’s going to make this report different.” The Rochester-Monroe Anti-Poverty Initiative is led by State Assembly Majority Leader Joe Morelle, Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren, and Monroe County Executive Maggie Brooks, and is convened by the United Way. The effort dovetails with Governor Andrew Cuomo’s Rochester Anti-Poverty Task Force, which is made up of members of 20 state agencies working with local public, private, and nonprofit leaders to address poverty in Rochester. The initiative’s progress report is the group’s first step toward its goal of reducing poverty in the RochesterMonroe County region by 50 percent over the next 15 years. The report will guide the group’s future work as well as investment by government, donors, and other sources. 6 CITY

SEPTEMBER 23-29, 2015

Leading up to the report, 150 local people served on working groups, each tackling a different area as it relates to people in poverty, including health and nutrition; housing; jobs and workforce development; and the justice system. Feedback was also sought from people living in poverty or who have emerged from poverty and are receiving some form of assistance to see what works well and what doesn’t. The group is initially focusing on the working poor — about 32,600 people in Monroe County, including the City of Rochester — because these are people who are “leaning in,” Brock says, and it shouldn’t require as much effort to get them over the hump to self-sufficiency as it would take to help someone who is not working, for example. Focusing on the working poor should also give the initiative some momentum, he says, and it breaks down Rochester’s overwhelming poverty problem into more manageable bites. Past efforts tried to do too much at once, Brock says, which helped lead to their collapse. The work groups identified the barriers that keep people in poverty, and it developed 33 recommendations to overcome them. The barriers are: • Lack of social and infrastructure development in neighborhoods of concentrated poverty; • Inequality caused by structural and institutional racism, or from racial, ethnic, social, or gender bias; • The impact of poverty-induced trauma; • Lack of knowledge, skills, and credentials to get or maintain a job;

• Limited access to or eligibility for public and private supports, services, and programs; • Insufficient community capacity for child care and transportation; • Public and private policies, regulations, and practices. The recommendations were synthesized to create three initial target areas: systems design, adult mentoring-navigating, and early childhood support. The Initiative will work with IBM to develop a comprehensive, integrated social-support system for the working poor. Rochester’s current system is fragmented, Brock says. It responds to individual needs, he says, and does not treat people and families holistically. It’s also difficult to navigate, he says. The latter observation is where the adult mentor comes in. The mentor will help the working poor navigate the system and obtain the knowledge and skills they need to land and retain a living-wage job. The creation of an adult mentor is the Number 1 recommendation of the initiative’s jobs and workforce development group, says Nicholas Weatherbee, vice president of strategic communications and special projects for the United Way. Early childhood support means making sure the working poor have access to highquality, affordable, flexible child care. The report also talks about in-home parent training “to give new parents the skills to succeed as their children’s first teachers.” One of the big questions surrounding the initiative’s work is where the money will come from. This is a time of tight municipal budgets and service cuts; Monroe County has been cutting, not expanding, subsidies for child care. That’s why it’s important, Brock says, to streamline and integrate the services that are available, which should save money and make the system as efficient as possible. Many of the programs and services already exist, he says, but the system is disjointed. Brock says that funding could come from foundations, the state, the United Way, and from private donors. Streamlining services, he says, will help guide investment by the philanthropic community to finally move the needle on poverty in the region. It’s important that the community manage its expectations for the initiative, Brock says. It will take a long term, all-hands effort to dig the region out of the hole it dug over the course of decades, he says. “There’s no quick fix to poverty,” Brock says. During the next phase of work, the Initiative will further refine the preliminary recommendations and offer solutions, with milestones and measurements attached. The group will also enumerate the policy changes needed to accomplish its goals.

If there is one thing Pizzeria Favo (3400 Monroe Avenue) owners Suzy and Gene O’Donovan are experts in, it’s good crust. The O’Donovans opened the first Montana Mills Bread Company in 1996, eventually branching out to include 31 locations. After selling the Montana Mills business, the O’Donovans opened Yotality, a frozen yogurt shop that now has 11 locations. Now the O’Donovans have turned their attention to the pizza trade, opening Pizzeria Favo in the Pittsford Colony Plaza. Carried over from Montana Mills is the stone burr flour mill that allows wheat to be milled in-house using two huge limestones; the stones grind together and turn the wheat kernels into the flour that is used to make the dough. Good dough equals good crust. Favo offers three different types of dough: a whole grain artisan, a traditional white, and gluten-free. When it came time to research pizza ovens, Gene O’Donovan traveled around the country looking for the best and returned with an oven he had found in New York City and an extra 10 pounds in pizza research weight. The oven they selected has

a huge stone inside that rotates the pizzas, cooking them in 4 to 7 minutes. The oven temperature can go up to 900 degrees. Ordering at Favo is assembly-line style, “kind of like the Chipotle of pizza,” says Suzy O’Donovan. You can create your own pie, including unlimited vegetables, using items from Favo’s ingredient list. Or you can order one of the specialty pizzas like the A la Vodka ($8.95), which is topped with vodka sauce, mozzarella, basil, meatballs, mushrooms, and peas. The Maui ($8.95) is topped with red sauce, mozzarella, grilled pineapple, Canadian bacon, and green peppers. Made-to-order salads are available, too. The O’Donovans have also taken one of their self-serve frozen yogurt machines from Yotality and filled it with six different types of gelato. Local craft beers are on tap as well as wine, rotated seasonally. They hope to expand Pizzeria Favo to other locations, and knowing their history, that seems likely. Pizzeria Favo is located at 3400 Monroe Avenue in Pittsford Colony Plaza. It’s open Monday through Sunday, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. 310-7383. Information:

And as multi-faceted as its customers are, so too is the business savvy credited with the store’s survival. The Record Archive has bucked trends — initiated a few of its own — and has ultimately endured the fickle retail world for lo, these last 40 years. The store — now located at 33 1/3 Rockwood Street — is 13,000-square feet jam-packed with new and used CDs, DVDs, toys, music ephemera, novelties, books, posters, housewares, audio equipment, T-shirts, vintage clothing and furniture, and Photos from the archives.

I was in with kind of an avant-garde crowd here.” Storms moved to San Francisco in 1967, crediting a cover of Life Magazine. “It was the summer of love, man,” he explains. “I was 20 years old.” Once in the Bay Area, Storms got a gig with psychedelic jam band Quicksilver Messenger Service, and lived in a tiny little room over the band’s practice space in the Merin County heliport. Bands and musicians like The Electric Flag, Harvey Mandel, and Gale Garnett rehearsed there as well. Then Storms saw the light — a light show at the Straight Theater from a band called Black Shit Puppy Farm. “I learned liquid projection techniques from them,”

he says. “I brought it back to Rochester and started my own light show called Sam Patch Memorial Lights.” Storms credits the failed daredevil for the Flower City’s trepidation. “Sam Patch is a local hero that should be more of a hero,” he says. “I think Sam Patch the risk-taker, that episode found its way into Rochester’s DNA regarding risk-taking, and Rochester as a generality, has been adverse to risk-taking ever since Sam Patch goofed.” However, Storms is not personally averse to taking a chance. “I got into going to household sales and garage sales,” he says, “because, first of all, I began furnishing my first apartment. Then I started collecting things, including records — 78s, all kinds of records — really with my

focus being jazz. I had accumulated a lot of records including stuff I didn’t really need.” Storms had a jazz program on WVOR in the early-to-mid-1970’s which drove his record collecting; he needed material for the show. “I started selling antiques in a formal way,” he says. “I had a booth at a flea market. One day, I put a couple of boxes of records on the floor in front of the booth and people just swarmed them. I had an “A-Ha!” moment. It occurred to me that perhaps I should be doing this.” Storms opened up the Record Archive booth

on September 14, 1975, at the Super Flea across from South Town Plaza. “It was just a mind blowing day,” he says. “We sold $1000 in records that day.” Storms was thrilled with the trend, though he hadn’t predicted its magnitude. Six months later, Storms was out of the flea market and in the Village Green Bookstore’s basement on Monroe Avenue. He stayed there two years before buying a building on Mt. Hope in 1977. It truly was a record archive. “I developed it into a multi-level store with different departments for new records, for used records, and exotic records,” Storms says. There were other locations on Monroe Avenue and East Avenue that preceded the locale at 33 1/3 Rockwood Street. The store moved into its current location in 2009. Though the Record Archive of today is still considered a record store, the introduction of gifts and novelty items — not all necessarily music related — has broadened its customer base … and serendipitously saved its life. “It was 1984,” Storms says, “and a friend who had a record store in Florida told me that, at her store, they had postcards and small gifts to keep the mate of the primary record buyer occupied while the primary shopper was shopping. The gifts were there as a diversion.” Though Storms liked the idea of diversifying and venturing outside the record purveying bailiwick, he didn’t buy its impetus: the old cliché being that men were the primary record buyers. “That cliché, it’s bullshit,” he says. “Having a female partner who has focused on bringing women into the store … I tell you my female


customers are absolutely great and a driving part of my business.” Alayna Alderman is The Record Archive’s vice president and Storms’ partner in crime for 30 years. She seconds Storms’ theory on female shoppers. “Clearly they are the decision makers in all aspects of a person’s life,” she says. “Admittedly or not. Believe what you want, but then there’s the reality.” Those stores that fall into that cliché risk becoming obsolete. “That’s something other record stores don’t get,” Storms says. “Record stores, especially the smaller ones, are boys’ clubs.” The store’s day-to-day is the reality where Alderman is yin to Storms’ yang, the snap and crackle to his pop. It has been so for the last 30 years. “Alayna really happened in an organic way,” Storms says. “It was 1985 and her sister was my office manager who decided to leave and start her own very successful business. And I was like ‘Omigod! Omigod! I’m a person who needs an office manager.’ Alayna was 19. Her sister brought her in and said, ‘Here.’”

“I was working at Wegmans at the time,” Alderman adds. “And I was considering moving to Florida. I never interviewed for the job. There was a desk with a rotary phone and just papers and crap everywhere.” Storms calls Alderman a “force of nature. She gets things done. She has been a very successful, positive influence and central figure in Record Archive.” The admiration is mutual. Alderman lauds Storms’ insight which she says keeps the business one step ahead the bubble. “His talent … one of his attributes is he is a visionary,” she says. “All those years of collecting records, gathering dust in the back room of the Mount Hope store, I kept thinking ‘My god, this place is going to burn down. But he knew there was going to be a resurgence. He just knew. The same thing with CDs and DVDs. He’s good at stepping back and having a global perspective. Plus he’s so well read, he’s reading The Times, the trades. And I also do that from a lifestyle-cultural standpoint. Somehow it all works.” Forty years in business and Storms and

Alderman have experienced ups and downs. One particularly dark down period Pearl Harbor’d them — and the whole industry — big time: Napster. Dark times were ahead. “That thing that made record stores around the world drop like flies,” Storms says. “Downloading. 1999 — for the party that was the record business, you can put the date of its demise right there. Imagine if you will where McDonalds would be if, 15 years ago they found a way to download hamburgers for free.” “There were many days when we didn’t think we were going to survive,” Alderman says. “He and I did what we had to do in order to keep things going.” Though the record store industry was wrapped up in the spiraling chaos, The Record Archive survived though with innovation and tenacity. “You had to have something that was different, desirable,” Storms says. “The gift part as well as the used was definitely something that was instrumental in our

salvation.” Used merchandise — “Salvage, really,” as Storms puts it — particularly helped through the lean uncertain early years of downloading. And it helps with the business’s robust pace today. According to Storms, in terms of sales, new and used music and movies make up about 85 percent. There’s a cohesiveness to The Record Archive that is both savvy and impish fun. “We still keep it in the spirit of entertainment,” says Storms, the man who has appeared in TV commercials dressed as a dancing record. “We’ve constantly had to reinvent ourselves,” Alderman says. “Yes we have the music fan, and we’ll always be based in music. But it’s not the same business it used to be. Music has been competing for peoples’ entertainment dollar for a while now. Music always seems to get pushed down, there’s always something sexier and exciting taking those dollars away. A lot of that is because the industry has devalued the product and contributed to its own demise. It’s allowed other things to pass it in regards to importance and relevance.” And as founding members of Coalition of Independent Music Stores, The Record Archive has shared its philosophy nationally with more than 50 other independent record stores. So The Record Archive is embarking on its fifth decade. And in the spirit of its vacillating ebb and flow, Alderman plans on curating locally produced products like pasta sauce and olive oil with “Record Archive Presents Roc Flaves.” “After being in business in Rochester for 40 years, this year we’re giving back and sharing the wealth,” she says. There’s a 40 percent off sale planned in October, and a reality TV show in the works as well. Storms continues to collect records, treasure hunt, play harmonica, paint, and predict the future. He also collects lawn sprinklers of which he figures he’s amassed a collection of around 2,000. Perhaps he should consider opening The Sprinkler Archive. Regardless, the man shows no signs of quitting. “Quit?” he says. “What the hell would I do?" CITY 11

Pegasus, begins this Sunday with a so-called “French Café” — no berets required, but you will have the chance to hear French songs and dances from the 12th to the 16th centuries, originally created by troubadours, kings, and even some composers. Best of all, you’ll hear a Pegasus favorite, countertenor José Lemos, who has been praised for his “big, colorful, sexy tone” (remember, this is French music you’ll be hearing). — BY DAVID RAYMOND

Calling to mind John Lennon’s post-Fab Four rock ‘n’ roll, The Grip Weeds throw out the fun while still taking a stab at social and political morality. This New Jersey fabulous foursome adopted the title of Lennon’s 1967 cult movie, “How I won the War,” for this album — the band’s name itself is from Lennon’s character, Musketeer Gripweed — so naturally you dig into this record with a bit of Beatle-mania in your guts. But there are a lot more awesome referential bits on this LP. The production as well as the performance on “How I Won the War” is scarily period correct; it brings the band out of the land of lazy comparisons and makes it possible to imagine the album as a key component in the British invasion way back when. Sure I detect a bit of The Who and The Kinks here as well, but I won’t spoil it, and will let you arrive at your own conclusion. — BY FRANK DE BLASE  


in early 2012 when the single “Nancy From Now On” was released. In it, Josh Tillman (the former drummer for Fleet Foxes and man behind FJM) sweetly sings “Oh, pour me another drink / And punch me in the face” over a grooving track that could have popped out of early 1970’s pop. You could call FJM a folk project at its core — there’s narrative, first-person perspective, and a great wit — but really it’s a lot of things all at once: lush and bare; cynical and loving; tender and fantastically twisted; funny and heartbreaking. — BY JAKE CLAPP

El Rojo Jazz. Ox and Stone,

Right out of the gate, “All the Blues to You” explains Buffalo’s David Michael Miller on his new Mike Brown-produced CD, “Same Soil.” Never straying from the blue notes seems to be his practice and a sure thing when you’re looking for a shortcut to the listener’s heart and soul. This album is dynamic as hell: gentle and blue in spots between the red hot rave-ups. There’s more going on than meets the ear, and a lot of it you sense in the room as if it were a ghost. And in keeping with the vaporous eternity slant: just dig the sanctifying strain on “Got Them Blues.” The paring of Miller and ace producer Mike Brown makes perfect sense and is reminiscent of the beautiful work Joe Henry did with Solomon Burke. This album burns hot and cool; it cuts deep and heals you right up. — BY FRANK DE BLASE

Brooklyn’s Huntertones take the best of jam band rock and brass-heavy jazz and leave out the worst. Gone is the shrill blast and confusion in a world without end, replaced by a thoughtful, introspective, soulful groove. It’s still exploratory and extrapolated, but with mucho taste and talent.

If you’ve heard “Tell the Truth” by Derek and The Dominos, you know the music of Bobby Whitlock. He co-founded the group with Eric Clapton and played guitar on classics like “Bellbottom Blues” and other tunes on the album “Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs.” He also appeared on George Harrison’s “All Things Must Pass” and The Rolling Stones’ “Exile On Main Street.” At Lovin’ Cup he’ll share the stage with his wife, CoCo Carmel.

City Newspaper’s cultural critics have been blogging reviews from the 2015 First Niagara Rochester Fringe Festival since it began on Thursday, September 17, and will continue through its conclusion on Saturday, September 26. Below, you can find edited versions of some of those reviews, most of them covering shows that will continue into Fringe’s second weekend — several, though, are for shows whose runs have ended, but were too unique to not tell our readers about. Also in this Fringe review section, you can find a feature on performers Kerry Young and Abby DeVuyst whose show, "Bushwhacked," sold out during last year's Fringe and is proving to be equally as popular this year. More information about the shows and venues for the coming week can be found at Be sure to head to every morning of the Fringe for new reviews, photos, and slideshows.


I saw the very entertaining “Cabinet of Wonders” in the packed Spiegeltent Thursday night, which included everything there’s to like about the circus, without the animal cruelty. The show began with the subtlest of clowns — a wiggly goofball who worked the audience with priceless facial expressions — performing some tricks while the husband-and-wife hosting team, Matt and Heidi Morgan, worked the audience. This led smoothly into an elegant and sexy Spanish Web performance, set to live guitar and the pretty, pretty vocals of Alexander Morgan, a John Maher-esque fellow. Several people I met during the intermission wondered if the gentleman might have an album they could go buy. The antics of the ringleaders fall somewhere between talented professionals and the madcap after party antics at a friend’s house as the evening is winding down: stupid-silly in a lovable way. An

acrobatic contortionist performed some mind-bending tricks with a hula hoop and later, a bow and arrow. All I have to say is: Katniss Everdeen, eat your heart out. The last acts of the show were dedicated to dance: a tender, acrobatic slow dance of supreme grace and strength, followed by a flourish-y ragtime number with a surprise ending. If we’re calling “Cabinet of Wonders” the circus, then the advertised one-legged tap dancer attraction, would be the traditional “sideshow” element. But far from a passive spectacle, the gentleman rocked the stage with a solo dance and guitar number. If you’re wondering what one-legged tap dance looks like, I’d encourage you to see the show — you won’t regret it. “Cabinet of Wonders” will be performed again in the Spiegeltent on Wednesday, September 23, at 7:30 p.m.; Thursday, September 24, at 7 p.m.; Friday, September 25, at 7 p.m.; and Saturday, September 26, at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. $36.

SEPTEMBER 23-29, 2015

Stay with me; Remote Rochester might take a minute to explain. The — what should we call it? — roving, interactive, theatrical performance is the fifth production in the “Remote X” series created by Berlin-based team Rimini Protokoll. The team has curated these events in Berlin, Milan, Paris, and New York, each time creating a brand-new, site-specific performance. The goal is to see the city in a new light. But this — pick one: performance, event, journey — goes further. Remote Rochester will make you think about how you interact with your literal surroundings; why we should observe strangers; and what it means to be part of a group. The broad synopsis of Remote Rochester might make you think you’ll see new parts of the city, but there really isn’t much in the way of new information. Rather, Remote Rochester wants to take you on a playful path with a semi-narrative. Wearing headphones and a transmitter, you are guided along a path around parts of the city by the smooth, synthetic voice of “Heather.” Participants are part of a 50-person “horde” that is prompted to interact with one another and become somewhat familiar — it was actually entertaining to silently learn the personalities of certain “horde” members simply through their body language: who was a leader; who wanted to be outgoing; who liked to stay toward the back and simply observe. Along the path, “Heather” will prompt the group to perform certain tasks, such as picking a gravestone to meditate at; dance and groove; or simply watch traffic drive by. A lot of the tasks are meant to prompt the participant to think about how they, an individual, fit into the larger scheme of things, and about the balance between nature and artificiality. I don’t want to spoil anything — the surprises of the trip are well-timed and a lot of fun — but there is somewhat of a loose pseudo-plot that happens throughout … and you are one of the actors. Ever wish you could have your own soundtrack to the day? Using atmospheric music, sound effects, and urban noises, Remote Rochester really captures an all-encompassing cinematic quality. It must have taken extraordinary planning to make Remote Rochester: public transportation is incorporated; small details are capitalized on; and the prompts make you think outside of the box. Really, Remote Rochester is the definition of “fringe.” Remote Rochester starts at the Speigelgarden, where a bus will take you and your “horde” to Mt. Hope Cemetery to begin the performance. Tickets are still available for Wednesday, September 23, at 1:30 p.m.; Thursday, September 24, at 1:30 p.m.; Friday, September 25, at 1:30 p.m.; and Saturday, September 26, at 9:30 a.m. $28. Appropriate for ages 13 and older.


Brooklyn-based aerial dance troupe Grounded Aerial premiered a new work Friday night as part of the Rochester Fringe Festival’s big Friday on the Fringe event. Martin Luther King Jr. Park in Manhattan Square was packed with people craning their necks to watch the dancers leap, flip, and glide off the side of the 21-story One HSBC Plaza building. In the dreamy, flowing performance, a wizard standing on the park’s “Tribute to Man” sculpture, and surrounded by members of BIODANCE, cast spells to conjure the dancers onto the side of the building and conduct them through a four-part program. With a little bit of glee in his movements, the wizard also joined his creations on the side of the building for two performances. With plenty of spins, jumps, and arching swings, the Grounded Aerial dancers made the performance look easy and fun (though I can’t imagine the coordination and strength needed to make those moves).

PUSH Physical Theatre, the creation of Rochester-based husband and wife team Darren and Heather Stevenson, bills itself as “physical theater,” but it is really so much more. Darren’s spot-on humor is imbued with philosophical depth and the pieces the company performed at the Rochester Fringe Festival on Saturday moved the audience from hilarity to awe. The woman next to me was dabbing at her eyes and sniffling during his solo piece, “Chair,” which addresses pursuit of a higher power as a guiding force in life. This, after Darren prefaced the piece with a tongue-in-cheek soliloquy about his preacher father and his own bad boy

rebellious attitude, and asked how many Christians were in the audience, going so far as to say that while he himself wasn’t gay, he had a British accent which was (sin) enough in most of the Bible belt. In “The Chair,” an older piece from PUSH’s repertoire, Darren initially used a foldout chair — his metaphor for a safe place — as support, pushing against it to support his weight as he maneuvered his body up into the air, legs parallel to the floor. Next, he sat in the chair, rising as if sensing some presence. Soon he was walking in place in the mesmerizing slow-motion action at which PUSH excels, and reaching for something, one arm extended upwards, his motions sharper, more intent.

Darren’s movements signified struggle, search. Eventually, he is running in place, the one arm still raised, the other extended towards some unknown force. The piece ended with discovery — perhaps redemption — replacing his yearning. The work could be interpreted in many ways and cuts to the quick about what guides a person, what leads his life choices. Equally compelling was the sneak peek PUSH gave the audience from its upcoming full-length production “Jekyll and Hyde.” The preview was tantalizing. Darren croucheed and stretched in agony like a werewolf under a full moon while the poignant strands of “Ava Maria” resonated around him. Company

members repeatedly came together, creating multibody formations before breaking apart to move independently. Katherine Marino hit a string of balletic choreography just right, executing arabesques and small jetes with innocent precision until Hyde (Jonathan Lowery) emerges from the core of interconnected bodies to stab her, the projection screen flowing with a red viscous substance. The full work will be presented at Blackfriars Theatre on January 29 through February 14. I can’t wait. PUSH performs again at the School of the Arts’ Allen Main Stage Theatre on Friday, September 25, at 8:30 p.m., and Saturday, September 26, at 5 p.m. $18. Appropriate for all ages.

“James and the Giant Peach: The Musical” [ THEATER ] BY ADAM LUBITOW




Throughout Method Machine’s ghoulishly delightful “ShakesBLOOD,” there’s a repeated demand for “more blood!” and — armed with an arsenal of blood-filled squeeze bottles, water balloons, and squirt guns — the cast more than honors the request. Smashing together the bloodiest scenes from the works of William Shakespeare, the show is performed on the outside patio of Abilene and the informal setting suits the show’s deliberately low-tech, shabby-chic vibe. But what the show lacks in production value, the cast more than makes up for in enthusiasm. The location does occasionally make it a bit hard for those seated in the back to hear the soliloquies, though that may be because the performance I attended happened to occur on a particularly windy night. “ShakesBLOOD” plays fast and loose with the Bard’s text, working in a couple of brief musical numbers and some relevant trivia between all the iambic pentameters. The highlights for me were the repeated appearances of Macbeth (Tracy Chang) and his Lady (Heather Rene, walking off with the entire show), here reimagined as Guido royalty. Even if the audience didn’t get quite as drenched as I’d been hoping, (a fact director David Henderson attributed to a faulty blood cannon — and is there any more tantalizing prospect than live theater featuring a blood cannon?), everyone still seemed to have a great time. And hopefully that cannon will be fixed in time for the next performance. “ShakesBLOOD” will be performed again on Saturday, September 26, at Abilene Bar and Lounge. 8 p.m. and 11 p.m. $10-$13. Appropriate for ages 13 and older.



RT 96, Victor 2 miles East of Eastview • 742-1360 • 24 CITY

SEPTEMBER 23-29, 2015

Performed by RAPA Family Theatre, “James and the Giant Peach: The Musical” comes from Tony-nominated composing team Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (“A Christmas Story: The Musical”). An adaptation of the beloved Roald Dahl book, the musical combines aspects of Dahl’s book and the 1996 film, adding in a plethora of new songs (it should be noted, these aren’t the same Randy Newman compositions featured in the film) and condensing the story for younger audiences. As is typical of Dahl, there’s a fair amount of darkness in the story of young James (Katherine Mary Chalone), who’s orphaned after his parents are unceremoniously eaten by a giant rhinoceros. He’s taken in by his horrid aunts Spiker (Lois Fiegl) and Sponge (Pebble Kranz), who treat him as slave labor. But he soon escapes his miserable existence thanks to some magical crocodile tongues, an enormous peach, and the collection of friendly bugs who reside inside it. Credit where it’s due, “James” is an ambitious choice for any theater group without a budget of millions of dollars at their disposal. In telling its whimsical tale, the show calls for puppetry, detailed costumes and elaborate sets, and while these aspects aren’t exactly requirements, they do help things considerably. Here, the minimized props and sets force cast and crew to rely on some imaginative staging that’s occasionally a bit too imaginative, leading to several scenes in which characters have to explain exactly what’s supposed to be happening. The results seemed to perplex several of the children seated near me. Still, the performances are spirited, and the bright, colorful production design is fun. If you’re looking for a Fringe show for the entire family, “James” makes for a pleasant diversion.


“James and the Giant Peach: The Musical” will be performed again on Monday, September 21, at 7 p.m.; Thursday, September 24, at 7 p.m.; and Saturday, September 26, at 2:30 p.m. School of the Arts’ Allen Main Stage Theatre. $16. Appropriate for all ages.

“Me, Ray Charles and Sammy Davis Jr.” [ DANCE/MUSIC ] BY REBECCA RAFFERTY

I scooted over to the Ensemble Theatre at School of the Arts for “Me, Ray Charles and Sammy Davis Jr.,” presented by RAPA. My only complaint for this excellent tap-dance and musical performance was that it didn’t take place in a club, and I had no access to a chill adult beverage to sip on. With incredible stamina and the help of a three-piece band and lovely backup singer, Movin’ Melvin Brown paid tribute to the two beloved performers name-dropped in the title, as well as others who Ray and Sammy acknowledged in their own acts. Taking turns tapping and belting, or doing both at once with barely a breather, Melvin moved through favorite jazz and blues numbers (I got chills from his version of Ray Charles’s “Georgia,”) with some surprises, like Ray’s rendition of John Lennon’s “Imagine” (again with the chills). The show became delightfully meta at times, like when Melvin impersonated Sammy Davis Jr. doing Gregory Hines doing Michael Jackson, combining tap with MJ’s iconic moonwalk and frenetic pop-and-lock. The Sammy set was rightfully rife with jokes and silliness, including an exploration of what it would look like if Michael Jackson did Riverdance. See this show! “Me, Ray Charles and Sammy Davis Jr.” will be performed again on Tuesday, September 22, at 8:30 p.m. at School of the Arts Ensemble Theatre. $18. PHOTO BY JOHN SCHLIA

“Hot Tub: The Musical” [ THEATER ] BY ADAM LUBITOW

My third day at the Rochester Fringe Festival was a wet and wild one; throughout the course of my time at the festival, rain, chlorinated water, and blood poured down on me at one point or another. My first stop was an afternoon performance of ”Hot Tub: The Musical.” A small tent located in the corner of the Spiegelgarden houses this enjoyable musical revue, which uses a simple framing story to hang a few catchy musical numbers. Writer Abby DeVuyst (in a role she alternates with co-writer, Kerry Young) portrays a lounge singer performing a floor show in the bowels of a Hilton hotel. Her musical stylings repeatedly interrupted by various guests as they arrive to use the hotel’s spa facilities. Those guests include a bawdy sister act; a matching making father, his college-aged daughter, and the dissatisfied businessman unlucky enough to join them; and finally a frisky newlywed couple. It’s all in good, goofy fun, and the crowd ate it up (performances have a tendency to attract crowds of curious onlookers, leading DeVuyst to ingeniously start passing around a tip jar). But be warned: you will get wet. “Hot Tub: The Musical” will be performed again Monday, September 21, Friday, September 25, and Saturday, September 26, in the Spiegelgarden. Only the 1:30 p.m. and 3 p.m. shows on Saturday, September 26, have tickets still available. $12. Appropriate for ages 13 and older.

Amid the urban outdoor lounge that comprises the Fringe’s Spiegelgarden at the corner of Main and Gibbs Streets, there’s a “rustic” tent. It is the intimate venue for “Bushwhacked,” one of the Fringe’s complete sell-out acts in 2014. “Bushwhacked” is a little different this year (though it looks to be another sell-out; as of the writing of this article, only four tickets remained). While last year’s theme was a summer camp experience, this year writer-performer duo Kerry Young and Abby DeVuyst built the improv show around the theme of “internal journey,” led by “creative internists” Parsec (DeVuyst) and Filament (Young). “When we were originally thinking about the show, we wanted something new age-y and earthy, so we designed these really positive characters,” DeVuyst says. “They’re like clown versions of us, so that’s probably why it’s easy to get into character.” Audience members begin the show by filling out a form that inspires some of the show’s content. Because of this, every performance is unique. “There may be a group meditation or a vision quest,” says Young. “It’s this whole idea of mind, spirit, and body. We even leave the tent and have a stretch break at one point.” And of course, it wouldn’t be camp without an arts and crafts activity. “Last year, they made sock puppets and we used them as characters,” Young says. “This time, we have a different sort of arts and crafts activity — it’s a takeaway — and it’s inspired by the show and embodies empowerment.” While it’s only Year 2 for “Bushwhacked,” Young and DeVuyst have been with the Fringe Festival since it launched four years ago. Young is also the manager of the TheatreROCS venue in the Xerox building (a position she likens to “herding cats”), and both have performed with Unleashed! Improv each year at Fringe. In fact, it’s been five years since the two met during an Unleashed! Improv rehearsal — Young founded the company roughly 10 years ago — and instantly connected. “We have good chemistry,” Young says. “We’d finish each other’s sentences during improv shows.” They began collaborating, experimenting with smaller shows for Fringe, in particular.

The duo created another sell-out show last year, “The Dashboard Dramas,” a production done entirely in a car, which returns this year and sold out before the Fringe guide was even printed. They were also commissioned to write (and in the case of DeVuyst, perform in) a brand new work called “Hot Tub: The Musical,” which also plays in the Spiegelgarden. By day, Young teaches at Bay Trail Middle School in Penfield and DeVuyst is a librarian at Brockport Public Library – which might explain why they wrote most of these shows

during a few weeks over the summer. “We don’t have to worry about anything we do together,” DeVuyst says. “We just know it’s going to work out. Fringe wanted a show built around a hot tub, and we’re like, ‘Yeah, let’s totally do that, it’ll work out.’ I think our writing relationship grew out of our time doing improv together.” Young adds that Fringe gives the team a reason to create new things, and that’s part of why they love it. “The Fringe process is like guerilla warfare: you’re figuring it out in the trenches,” DeVuyst

says. “You figure out what works the first few times you do it. As performers and improvisers, we push the audience to see how far we can get them out of their comfort zones and we get all these people at Fringe who are willing to get into a tent.” And yes, inevitably, sometimes things get awkward. One night, says Young, “we were getting out of the tent to do these made up yoga moves, and a guy was crouching to get out, and I reached out to grab hold of something and it was his buttocks. I apologized in


character and he was a good sport, but it’s so intimate — quite literally sometimes.” For those who won’t have the opportunity for the intimate experience of “Bushwhacked” this year due to a lack of tickets, Young and DeVuyst will continue to collaborate throughout the local theater season. Unleashed! Improv will perform monthly as part of Blackfriars Theatre’s new comedy partnership, and Young directs Blackfriars’ Sherlock Holmes-inspired holiday show, “The Game’s Afoot,” which stars DeVuyst and other local talent.

SEPTEMBER 23-29, 2015


Though this summer marked 150 years from the end of the Civil War, the nation remains covered in undressed wounds. And despite the desperately bloody history of slavery and the still unresolved fallout, America tends to gloss over the more violent uprisings in favor of highlighting leaders of civil disobedience. But contemporary African American artist Jacob Lawrence created a moving portfolio of prints about the life of militant abolitionist John Brown, and it’s currently on exhibit at the Memorial Art Gallery. MAG is home to 28 prints and paintings by Lawrence (who lived from 1917 to 2000), including this suite of 22 serigraph prints. In his iconic flat and colorful style, Lawrence chronicled the move of African Americans from the South to the North and the energy of life in Harlem. In this set of prints, he sympathetically depicts how Brown’s steadfast mission to overthrow slavery in America helped spark the start of the war. Many comparisons have been made between Brown and the Christ figure; like Jesus, Brown knew he would be martyred for his cause. And

like Jesus’s foes, Brown’s opposition wanted to keep on exploiting other humans. But Brown was a complicated figure of compassion who used deadly force against the oppression. This paradox is explored in the history-lesson wall text and in a Robert Hayden poem that accompanies the exhibit. A provided statement tells that Hayden’s verse offered a look at the “unresolved conflicts” between Brown’s goal of ending human bondage and his ruthlessly violent means of accomplishing this. MAG staff have reconfigured the Lockhart Gallery, where they present smart shows drawn from the museum’s collection of works on paper. They have removed the central walls, leaving a large, open space, allowing visitors plenty of room to navigate the storyline counter-clockwise around the room, beginning with Brown as a devout, middle-aged man tortured by the plight of slaves. The stark, powerful set of images were made in 1977, based on Lawrence’s original gouache paintings created in 1941. Each small picture, composed of minimal shapes of bold colors and sparse symbolism, provide to-the-point storytelling. Lawrence did not sacrifice detail in his minimal approach: Brown’s craggy, world-weary face and humble but determined gestures are expertly conveyed throughout. Through imagery and sentence-long titles, Lawrence describes that for more than a decade, Brown tried to raise funds through a variety of trades, such as land speculation and wool merchandising. But his efforts ultimately failed, and he accepted poverty without accepting defeat. Brown shifted his focus to gathering support,

by telling his children and others that he planned to attack slavery by force, and by forming an organization of African Americans living in the Adirondack woods to resist the capture of fugitive slaves. The prints that depict these meetings are aptly rife with tension, the bodA print by Jacob Lawrence, titled “Sunday, October 16, 1859, John Brown ies clustered around a with a company of 21 men, white and black, marched on Harpers Ferry.” table in wary conspiracy, The work is part of a set illustrating the life of abolitionist John Brown, their postures fearful currently on view at Memorial Art Gallery.

The following scene feels just as cold and wide, blue sky, ascending through the clouds. CITY 29


Comedian and host of HBO’s “Real Time” Bill Maher will visit Rochester on Sunday, September 27, for a show at the Auditorium Theatre (885 East Main Street). In the biz for more than 20 years, Maher is known for his near decade as the host of “Politically Incorrect,” and for “Religulous,” his 2008 feature-length swat at organized religion. His work has earned him 34 Emmy nominations and a gold medal in extreme eye-rolling. As a host, Maher has interviewed the likes of Howard Dean, Ben Affleck, Robin Williams, Arianna Huffington, Cory Booker, and Michael Moore. He’s also authored five bestsellers: “True Story,” “Does Anybody Have a Problem with That? Politically Incorrect’s Greatest Hits,” “When You Ride Alone, You Ride with Bin Laden,” “New Rules: Polite Musings from a Timid Observer,” and most recently, “The New New Rules: A Funny Look at How Everybody But Me Has Their Head Up Their Ass.” Dude’s not exactly shy with his views. The show starts at 7:30 p.m., and tickets are $39-$95. For more information or to secure your seat, call 222-5000 or visit — BY REBECCA RAFFERTY

Casa Italiana — an organization on Nazareth College’s campus that offers educational, social, and cultural programs related to Italy and its culture — will host a couple of events this week featuring the Akragas Folk Dance Group of Sicily. Wearing costumes from the late-19th century and using distinct instruments, Akragas performs traditional music and dances of the Sicilian people — and the cultures that have influenced the region in the past, including Greek, Roman, Turkish, and Arabic.

As the weather turns, I think fondly of a lit-loving Austin Phelps quote: “Wear the old coat, buy the new book.” Don your shabby duds and seek some pages to keep you company in the cold; head to the Pub Fair and Litsplosion, hosted this weekend at Visual Studies Workshop (31 Prince Street). The annual event brings together book artists, photographers, independent publishers, and DIYers for a showcase and sale of artist’s books, photobookworks, magazines, zines, digital publishing, as well as resources. Writers & Books will present Litsplosion, a reading throughout the day featuring our region’s best writers. Get your vittles from Marty’s Meats, Neno’s Gourmet Mexican, and Ugly Duck Coffee, who will be set up on VSW’s lawn. There will also be beer offered in the lobby.

Akragas Folk Dance Group will perform during the Casa Italiana Open House on Thursday, September 24, 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.; and again on Friday, September 25, at 7 p.m. in Callahan Theatre at Nazareth College Arts Center, 4245 East Avenue.

Usher in autumn this weekend with New York State Ballet’s performance of “The Raven: 3 Tales by Edgar Allan Poe.” The performance, held at Hochstein Music Hall (50 North Plymouth Avenue), promises a lavishly haunting dance interpretation of three of Poe’s most famous works. These include a dramatic theatrical representation of Poe’s short story, “The Masque of the Red Death,” with dancer Kate Kostelnik playing the ominous, merciless title character the Prince encounters at a masquerade ball. In “The Cask of Amontillado,” the dancers will reflect on Poe’s tense tale of revenge between friends, and in “The Raven,” the dancers will give an interpretive glimpse into Poe’s life of tragedy and suffering, instead of a literal depiction of the poem. The performance will take place Saturday, September 26, 7:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for children, students, and groups of 10 or more. For additional information or to buy tickets, call 1-800-838-3006 or visit — BY REBECCA RAFFERTY

Movies about gangsters have long been irresistible to both the storytellers and the audience, and I think the reason they remain so eternally compelling is that we viewers are allowed to have our cake and then chase it with a $7 soda. We get to live vicariously through morally bankrupt men – and they are almost always men – doing things we might dream of only in our darkest moments, but we’re also

able to bask smugly in the inevitable reckoning when it’s time for third-act justice. Within all this bad behavior, though, lies a sort of honor that’s traditionally found whenever people operate under a code of conduct, however skewed it may be. A bullet to the back of the head, for example, is acceptable, even expected. Tattling, however, crosses the line. “I am not a rat” are actually among the first words spoken in “Black Mass,” a violent, absorbing film about notorious Boston gangster James “Whitey” Bulger and his shocking quidpro-quo relationship with the FBI that went unchecked for decades. The story is framed in flashback, as a few of Bulger’s former associates sing to the Feds once they’re finally arrested. We initially meet Bulger in 1975, and as played by Johnny Depp with a receding hairline, a dead tooth, and the most terrifying blue contact lenses in cinema history, Bulger is a career criminal making a living in clannish South Boston. His Winter Hill Gang seems to have an uneasy truce with

“the goddamn dagos in the North End,” but when an odd opportunity arises to neutralize the Boston Mafia, Bulger jumps at it. “There’s informin’, and there’s informin’,” Bulger explains to right-hand man Steve Flemmi (the underrated Rory Cochrane) of his decision to enter into an alliance with ambitious FBI agent John Connolly (Joel Edgerton, “The Gift”), an arrangement further justified by the Southie-born Connolly’s childhood friendship with Bulger’s upstanding brother Billy (Benedict Cumberbatch), now an influential state senator. Connolly uses Bulger’s street knowledge to dismantle the local Mob, looking the other way while his star informant fills this new power vacuum and savagely cements his standing atop the Boston underworld. It doesn’t go entirely unnoticed by Connolly’s colleagues, played by ringers like Kevin Bacon and Adam Scott, that Bulger appears to be getting a pass even as the bodies start piling up, but Bulger’s sway at the FBI, financial and otherwise, didn’t stop at Connolly... and it couldn’t last forever. All the review quotes are touting “Black Mass” as a return to form for Depp, and it’s true that sinking his teeth into such a meaty lowlife elicits a spark not seen since he played another noted gangster, John Dillinger, in 2009’s “Public Enemies.” Depp’s disciplined performance here is both chilling and somewhat chilly, as we don’t really delve deep enough to learn what fueled Bulger’s legendary sociopathy besides greed and



a vicious instinct for survival. Depp’s measured intensity is nicely balanced by the clownish swagger of Edgerton’s Connolly, obviously in over his head as he tries to keep track of his lies. Cochrane is fantastic as the weary Flemmi, leading a wicked supporting cast that includes Jesse Plemons (“Friday Night Lights”) and W. Earl Brown (“Deadwood”) as Bulger’s goons, as well as the scene-stealing Peter Sarsgaard as a coked-up hood. Dakota Johnson, Juno Temple, and especially Julianne Nicholson (“Boardwalk Empire”) as Connolly’s skeptical wife all make impressions as the women who threw in with these lawless men. It certainly doesn’t hurt that director Scott Cooper is in charge, having proved himself a friend to actors with films like 2009’s Oscar-winning “Crazy Heart” and 2013’s “Out of the Furnace.” Now, wonky timelines and clearly speculative scenes make it necessary to mention that while “Black Mass” is based on a riveting nonfiction book by former Boston Globe reporters Dick Lehr and Gerard O’Neill, parts of the film are Hollywood supposition. (Documentary-wise, check out Joe Berlinger’s excellent “Whitey.”) Fortunately, this in no way detracts from any appreciation of the finished product, a worthy addition to the gangstermovie canon with a stranger-than-fiction twist. Finally captured in 2011 after 16 years on the lam – and second only to Osama Bin Laden on the FBI’s Most Wanted list – Bulger still maintains he wasn’t an informant. Drug dealer? Of course. Killer? Hell, yes. But a rat? How dare we.

Following so closely on the heels of the gripping documentary “Meru,” Icelandic filmmaker Baltasar Kormákur’s 3D actionadventure, “Everest” — which chronicles the 1996 tragedy that befell a group of climbers who set out to scale the world’s largest mountain — only emphasizes that the true message of any movie about mountain climbing seems to be “climbing mountains is a terrible idea.” “Everest” is more disaster epic than true-life adventure tale, and following the template of such films, we’re introduced to a massive cast of recognizable faces. Jason Clarke (“Dawn of the Planet of the Apes”) portrays Rob Hall, owner of commercial climbing company Adventure Consultants, whose mission is to shepherd civilian climbers to Everest’s summit. He allows people with the monetary means, but


little actual experience, to do the impossible. Among those people are Beck Weathers (Josh Brolin), a gung-ho Texan, and Doug Hansen (John Hawkes), an unassuming mailman who’s climbing the mountain in order to prove to a class of elementary school children back home that anything is possible. Also in their group is writer Jon Krakauer (Michael Kelly), tagging along to write a magazine profile on Hall and his company. Krakauer’s best-selling book “Into Thin Air” also chronicled the ill-fated expedition. Hall’s business partner, Helen Wilton (Emma Watson), acts as coordinator back at base camp. Then there’s Scott Fischer (Jake Gyllenhaal), the leader of a rival expedition, bringing his own group of climbers up the mountain. But when a deadly snowstorm descends upon the climbers, stranding many atop the mountain, things go south rather quickly and their trek becomes a fight for survival. We also check in on Hall’s and Weathers’ worried wives back home, played by Keira Knightley and Robin Wright, respectively. As capably made as the film is, screenwriters William Nicholson and Simon Beaufoy have crammed so many characters into the narrative that the characters can’t help but come across as two-dimensional types when we’re given the CliffsNotes versions of who they are as people. I wished we got to learn more about Yasuko Namba (Naoko Mori), who seems the most invested in the climb. She’s conquered six of the seven highest mountains in the world, and the completist in her demands that she finish the set. If you truly care to keep track of characters, be sure to memorize the colors of their snowsuits, because once the goggles come on and wind and snow is blowing, it’s nearly impossible to tell who you’re looking at otherwise. The film captures the combination of wonder, attraction to risk, and ego that makes someone become a mountain climber, even if it’s never too concerned about the “why?” aspect of the story.

Screening as the first feature in the Witness Palestine film series, “The Wanted 18” is a most unusual documentary about an incident in the small village of Beit Sahour during the first intifada. In an effort to become self-sufficient during the Israeli occupation, and as a form of nonviolent protest, the townspeople purchase a herd of 18 cows. The Palestinians view the cows as a sign of freedom and independence, but Israeli authorities see them as a threat, claiming the animals are “dangerous to the security of the state of Israel.” To prevent the cows from being seized, the villagers decide to hide them. And just like that, a herd of cows are fugitives from the law. Israeli forces even conduct door-to-door searches, wielding photos of the cows and demanding, “Have you seen this cow?” Filmmakers Paul Cowan and Amer Shomali capture the comedic absurdity of the situation using talking-head testimonials, re-enactments, stop-motion animation (featuring anthropomorphized, talking cows), and black-and-white drawings, often framed within comic book panels. The more whimsical aspects are often quite funny, but the participants are quick to remind viewers that at the time, the circumstances were deadly serious.



“Wobblies” was the popular name given to trade unionists organized in the Industrial Workers of the World, around the turn of the last century—a union with syndicalist and anarchist sympathies. The US government, Pinkertons, and private business used any means necessary, including murder, to suppress the union. This documentary uses found footage and interviews to tell the compelling history of the Wobblies. (Deborah Shaffer & Stewart Bird, US 1979, 89 min., 16mm) Print courtesy of MoMA. Part of the Rochester Labor Film Series.

The most vital of a series of films Ingrid Bergman made with then-husband Rossellini, Journey to Italy is a breathtaking cinematic trip through Italy and a masterpiece of happenstance leading to epiphany, with detached couple Bergman and George Sanders recognizing their dwindling chances for happiness while on holiday.

The script spends an equal amount of time on the setup as it does on the peril, but once the storm hits, the film is unrelenting. “Everest” opened in IMAX 3D last Friday before rolling out to regular theaters this week, and the use of 3D makes for a visceral, immersive experience. The spectacular views are breathtakingly beautiful, capturing the altitudes in terrifying detail. Throughout, cinematographer Salvatore Totino makes a point to keep characters in frame as he captures the massive vistas — all the better to emphasize their ultimate insignificance in the face of the mountain’s brutal majesty.

With all historic homes, the focus and draw inevitably comes down to the home’s preserved personality. When you enter, can you sense the original character has been cared for and maintained throughout the years? For the stately and elegant brick home at 1625 Culver Road, the answer to that question is a resounding “Yes!” This grand dame of the North Winton Village neighborhood still stands as proudly today as she did in 1917. A testament to turn-ofthe-century American craftsmanship and design, 1625 Culver Rd. truly is a showcase home. Imagine hosting a dinner party with a few of your closest friends. As they filter through the entranceway, your guests are drawn in by the historic oak door, original mosaic tile floor, and well-preserved foyer. The gleaming hardwood floors and handsome wood trim will warmly welcome them into this spectacular home. Your guests then file through French doors leading into the formal dining room for a meal under the stained oak coffered ceiling. The original fully-functioning radiators will keep the room toasty, allowing everyone to relax and marvel at the historic lighting fixtures, beautiful wood trim, and built-in features. A couple may even settle into the attached morning room, attracted by the bright sunlight reflecting through the windows and off the diamond-pattern wood floor. After the meal, your party ventures into the parlor and chats alongside the fireplace, perhaps discussing the artwork hanging from the historic picture rails attached to the wood molding.

Finally, everyone files through the modern kitchen to the back of the house to relax in style. Folks may choose to remain in the cavernous enclosed back porch, however, it’s more likely they will be drawn to the large, private backyard. Flanked on one side by the fully restored original carriage house, the yard boasts extensive garden and lush lawn space. A trip down a staircase reveals an in-ground pool, with an accompanying cabana and patio. Once the party dies down, this home offers spacious second and third floors in which to relax and unwind. The second floor has three well-maintained bedrooms boasting historic character, and an updated master bath in perfect harmony with the style of the home. A second-floor four-season room with partially exposed brick at the rear of the house is a perfect place to end the evening. Large family or guests spending the night? This house can easily accommodate a crowd, with two additional bedrooms and a second full bathroom on the fully-finished third floor. 1625 Culver Road offers approximately 2,800 square feet of living space (plus additional livable square footage in the carriage house) on a 0.42 acre lot and is listed at $250,000. Tours can be arranged by contacting Amanda Kellogg of Nothnagle Realtors at 585-461-6341. by Peter Smith Peter lives and works in Rochester and is a Landmark Society volunteer.
