It’s easy being Green A Green Day show is simply spectacular, but without too much emphasis on spectacle and fluff. Green Day just digs in and goes, plugs in and peels out. The band — singer/guitarist Billie Joe Armstrong, bassist Mike Dirnt, drummer Tre Cool, and guitarist Jason White — has re-defined, or at the very least dominated, pop/punk since it first came on the scene in the early 1990’s. There’s a pile of awards and thousands of fans in the
band’s wake that attest to it all. The quartet has packed a lot into the band’s nearly 25-year history. It isn’t in Mike Dirnt’s nature to look in the rearview mirror. But when he does pause and get a glimpse of his band’s long history, he’s a bit stymied. “Wow,” Dirnt says. “Where’d the time go? And how did I get so old?” The band is back on tour to support its recent triple-album project, and will make a stop in Rochester on Monday, April 1.

Policing the city
In “Paging Officer Friendly,” our current mayor challenged anyone who presents an alternative to what the police department is doing right now to “be specific about what they mean and how they’re going to pay for it.” I’ll take that challenge. When I discuss Community Policing, the most important part is getting the officers on the street. After all, the best deterrent to crime is a police officer. In Rochester there are 507 officers in the patrol division, of whom roughly 300 work each day. Unfortunately, over time many of these have been assigned to non patrol duties like crossing guards downtown, watching cameras, desk positions, neighborhood service centers, and many more. As a result, many of the officers are not patrolling. Even the patrol officers are frequently driving to or from the station downtown, further diluting the coverage. It does not have to be this way. If all 300 officers were on patrol each day, there could be two officers in each square mile of the city every hour of the day, with roughly 25 additional officers every shift to provide support, supervision, or transport or to respond to calls for back-up. This would allow officers to crack down on open air drug markets, keep track of vacant houses, deal with noise, ticket illegally parked cars, and help the residents keep an eye on their community. Perhaps we could even find ways to get some of the non-patrol officers on the street. After all, many of these officers are doing clerical or technical jobs, which could be done by people without all the extra training that police receive. Best of all, a small reduction in staff would cover the cost of the non-officer personal so this would not cost more money. So you see, not everyone is calling for more police while, once again, reducing other services. This is just one of the many improvements that would improve policing in our city. I look forward to discussing this
and other solutions like restorative policing, a strong civilian review board, and recreation as crime prevention at community forums this election season. ALEX WHITE

University Ave plan’s a plus
As a longtime homeowner in the East Avenue Preservation District, I am keenly aware of what a unique neighborhood this is and how important it is that development be carefully planned. There are a number of examples on East Avenue where historic houses were demolished in the 1950’s and 1960’s, before there was a Preservation District, and replaced with non‑descript apartments without regard to how they fit into the streetscape. So when I first heard about a proposed apartment project to replace the Monroe Voiture building on University Avenue, I read and studied everything I could about it. The result is that I am completely in favor of this development. The proposed drawings show a building that would blend in well with the neighborhood. It would address a serious housing shortage in this part of the city. It would add a major property to the tax base. It would relieve the Monroe Voiture members of a burdensome financial responsibility while providing them with a permanent clubhouse. Finally, the addition of 100-plus new residents would only add to the vibrancy of the neighborhood. I see this as mutually beneficial for everyone involved. ED CAIN, ROCHESTER
Second class, thanks to DOMA
With most marriages comes the security and comfort knowing that your physical and emotional wellbeing are protected and cared for. However, on a recent work related trip to Washington D.C., I came to the realization that is not the case for same-sex couples. I was legally married in New York, but once I crossed the Pennsylvania border, I vaulted into second-class citizenship. I was somewhat relieved to know when I
entered Maryland and the District of Columbia that most of my civil rights were once again restored. This is a type of psychological bullying that no right-minded American should experience. Today, with the Defense of Marriage Act wreaking havoc on American families everywhere, the federal government continues to impose its discriminatory nature on me and my loved ones. God forbid one of us gets sick or has an accident on the road – my wife Anne of 6 years (together 20) would be treated as a complete stranger. I’m forced into a legal lie by having to file our federal taxes as single even though I file as married in New York State. DOMA must be overturned now. The hoops we go through as a family are unacceptable and should not be tolerated by anyone who believes in equal protection under the law. BESS WATTS, GATES
On “Some Useful Gun-death Statistics,” News Blog: We are to have sufficient arms of common use. The .223/5.56 is the most common rifle in use. It is not a “machine gun” nor fully automatic. It is SEMIautomatic. Our founding fathers would use modern muskets and keep the militarization of police/gov’t/ DHS balanced by We the People. This is about control and the gradual loss of liberties while those in our entitlement society beg for government to keep them safe rather than to protect the “rights” of the people. DAVID SHAW
Posted on rochestercitynewspaper.com One and a half million Armenians were killed after they were legislated by their government to register and then give up their guns. Ten million Ukrainians were forced to starve to death after they gave up their guns. Twelve million Germans were worked to death or killed outright years after first registering and then surrendering their firearms. In Cambodia, the Khmer Rouge confiscated all guns. Within years 2 million were killed, worked, or starved to death. What happened at Sandy Hook is truly a tragedy. But are we willing to risk the lives of millions in the hopes of saving hundreds?

URBAN JOURNAL | BY MARY ANNA TOWLER
Choosing a mayor in a challenging time For anyone who follows Rochester politics, there was little doubt that City Council President Lovely Warren would run for mayor. The only question was when. Last week we found out: it’s now. And so we will have incumbent Tom Richards, a 69-year-old white male lawyer and former corporate executive, and Warren, a 35-year-old African-American woman lawyer, in a Democratic primary in September. The winner will likely face Green Party candidate Alex White and, possibly, a Republican candidate and others, in November. It will be an important campaign. And if everybody resists the temptation to go negative, it could offer the city – and the metropolitan area – a chance to take stock of where we are, where we may be headed, and our options for the future. Those options, frankly, are limited. And the challenges are enormous: persistent, concentrated poverty; an eroded manufacturing sector and tax base; an outdated structure that forces the city to rely heavily on property taxes to finance its services; and governmental barriers that keep poverty walled up inside the city. Still, there are options. And it matters who leads the city. Richards likely will campaign as a pragmatist, emphasizing the challenges we face; cautioning that there will be no grand projects, no magic solutions; and offering himself as an experienced manager who can keep the city stable in tough times. And while in her kick-off press conference last week, Warren said that the city “needs a vision for the future,” I don’t expect her to promise miracles, either. She’s been on City Council for almost six years and has been president for the last three, so she should know the city’s challenges as well as Richards does. One Warren theme will almost certainly be neighborhoods – particularly Rochester’s poor neighborhoods and their residents. On City Council, Warren has been a dogged representative of the northeast inner city. And she pushed successfully for affordable housing in College Town on Mt. Hope. In her press conference last week, she challenged an approach that the Richards administration has followed for neighborhood development. Called “focused investment,” the policy directs financial resources to a few targeted neighborhoods rather than spreading them among all neighborhoods.

Everything Tom Richards and Lovely Warren say from now on will be viewed through the lens of the September election.” So this campaign could result in a serious discussion about a serious topic: how we invest the city’s limited resources in a way that benefits everybody. How we balance the need to attract development with the need to lift the poor. But there are also risks in this particular campaign between these two particular people. Everything Richards and Warren say from now on, as mayor and City Council president, will be viewed through the lens of the September election. And the campaign could impact the actions of City Council, which at least publicly, has been a fairly cohesive group and has been supportive of the mayor. Now the Council president is running against the mayor, and Council members are beginning to take sides: Adam McFadden is supporting Warren, and Carolee Conklin, Elaine Spaull, and Matt Haag are supporting Richards. There is also the danger that the campaign will take on racial or class overtones. Rochester’s recent political history includes the election of plenty of African Americans – a mayor among them – so Warren’s candidacy itself doesn’t inject race into the discussion. But the moment it looked likely that Warren would announce, I started hearing mutterings of concern that this would quickly become a racebased campaign, pitting the needs of black Rochesterians against those of whites. Dissension is good. Primaries are healthy. An election campaign with racial or class overtones is an entirely different matter. I’m confident that neither Warren nor Richards wants that and that neither one will encourage or condone it. But some of their supporters might. That would cause serious damage to this community – to the city and its surrounding suburbs – that would last well beyond the tenure of either candidate as mayor.

Mayor’s race heats up
City Council President Lovely Warren, a Democrat, launched her mayoral campaign with a press conference at the Fight Village Apartments on Ward Street in northeast Rochester. Warren’s entry into the race puts the total of official mayoral candidates at two. She’ll have to primary incumbent Mayor Tom Richards, and Rochester businessman Alex White is looking to enter the race on the Green Party line.
Church still historic
Rochester developer Marvin Maye lost his bid to have a West Main Street church taken off the city’s list of historic properties. Maye owns the church but wants to tear it down so he can build a Dollar General. The historic designation adds another hurdle for Maye to clear in his push to demolish the church.
Corby keeps office
Village of Pittsford Mayor Bob Corby won re-election, defeating challenger Trip Pierson. Corby, a registered Republican, ran on the Democratic, Conservative, and Pittsford Village United lines,
while Pierson ran as a Republican. Corby’s running mates, Lili Lanphear and Stacey Freed, also won election.
Luxury units on the river
Morgan Management plans to purchase land behind Dinosaur BarB-Que to build a luxury apartment complex overlooking the Genesee River. The $20 million project would include 100 units with an underground parking garage and some ground-level retail. The site is a complicated one, however, due to the proximity to the river, the Interstate ramps, and the subway tunnel.

Pension worries for Catholic Diocese
The pension fund for the Roman Catholic Diocese of Rochester’s lay employees is seriously underfunded. The fund covers about 2,000 current and retired employees. Diocese officials are working on increasing contributions into the fund, but they are also working on increasing the pension fund for priests. When that campaign reaches its goal, the plan is to direct efforts into the lay employee fund.

SPRING IS HERE WHEN THE NEW GRILLS ARE IN!
The 2013 Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival line-up was announced on Tuesday, March 26. In all 1200 artists will perform 280 concerts over the nine-day festival running June 21-29. The June 28 soul double-bill of Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings and The James Hunter 6 on the free East & Chestnut is not only likely to be the best show of the festival, but possibly the best show of the year. In terms of straight-ahead jazz, we’ll get a display of legendary bloodline with the return of Ravi Coltrane, while Dr. Lonnie Smith brings back his B-3 swagger and cool. Swinging mayhem will come in the form of Philly’s Gas House Gorillas. And festival promoters raved about relative unknowns like Quincy Jones-nurtured vocalist Nikki Yanofsky and the world’s tallest trio, The Stretch Orchestra. The acts announced Tuesday join previously announced headliners Willie Nelson & Family (the only sold-out show so far), David Byrne
and St. Vincent, Pink Martini, Peter Frampton’s Guitar Circus, Roger Hodgson, and Bob James & David Sanborn with Steve Gadd. New this year are free jazz workshops for aspiring music students. Free shuttle busses have been added, with stops at parking garages around the city. Another major outdoor concert has been added for the first Friday of the festival, with Dr. John playing the East Ave/Chestnut Street Stage on June 21. The Rochester Club has broadened its focus from strictly Italian musicians and is now called Groove Nights. And as announced earlier, Little Theatre 1 has been added as a Club Pass venue. Festival organizers have added more Club Passes to accommodate this addition. Club Passes and headliner tickets are on sale now at rochesterjazz. com.

“It’s in a time of crisis that you need protection the most. And that’s Social Security survivor benefits, Medicaid, Estate Tax…and those are all federal. Those are what I call the ‘holy grail’ of benefits.” BESS WATTS, LGBT ACTIVIST
LGBT | BY CHRISTINE CARRIE FIEN
EDUCATION | BY TIM LOUIS MACALUSO
The US Supreme Court is hearing legal challenges this week to two major pieces of LGBT-related legislation: California’s Prop 8 and the federal Defense of Marriage Act. Voters in California narrowly approved a ban on same-sex marriage, known as Proposition 8, in November 2008. The ban was upheld by the California Supreme Court in May 2009, but overturned by a district court judge. That judge’s ruling was upheld by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. DOMA, which defines marriage as being between a man and a woman, was signed into law by President Clinton in 1996. (Both Bill and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton have recently called for DOMA’s repeal). The federal law is often in conflict with state laws in states that permit same-sex marriage, trapping couples in the middle. “I call it ‘whack a gay,’” says Bess Watts, a well-known area LGBT activist. “When Anne and I go to Utah [for example], we’re legal strangers. There are so many protections that come with the federal government.” Watts and her wife, Anne Tischer, were married in 2005 in Niagara Falls, Canada. “It’s in a time of crisis that you need protection the most,” Watts says. “And that’s Social Security survivor benefits,
Medicaid, Estate Tax…and those are all federal. Those are what I call the ‘holy grail’ of benefits.” DOMA impacts more than 1,000 federal laws, says Mariko Hirose, FILE PHOTO staff attorney with the New York Civil Liberties Union. The DOMA case only deals with Section 3 of the law, which defines marriage, for federal purposes, as between a man and a woman. But Watts says that any challenge to DOMA is worthwhile. “This is not about marriage at all,” she says. “This is about our place in society. It’s one more card in the house of cards [that could] fall. It really, truly is historic.” The Supreme Court was scheduled to hear arguments on Prop 8 on Tuesday, March 26, with the DOMA hearing scheduled for Wednesday, March 27. Decisions in both cases aren’t expected for several weeks.
In his proposed budget, Rochester schools Superintendent Bolgen Vargas lays out a unique vision to tackle the district’s most persistent problems. | The roughly $728 million budget is the same as the current year’s amended budget, but includes expanded instruction time in core subjects at the elementary level. And Vargas would lengthen the school day at eight more schools. | Though the number of teachers would decrease, more teachers would be in the classroom. Vargas says that although there would be few teacher layoffs, as many as 300 full-time teaching positions would be eliminated through attrition. | Vargas’s plan to close the $50.2 million budget gap depends on some big assumptions. Governor Cuomo has included in the state budget a scheme to help cities and school districts with soaring pension costs, but the plan faces scrutiny by lawmakers. Vargas is counting on about $17.2 million in savings from that plan. | More troubling is the $17.2 million he expects to save through operational efficiencies: reducing the number of teacher and clerical substitutes, revamping how special education services are provided, and redesigning the inhouse suspension program.

RIT spins cooking oil into gold The campus dining services at Rochester Institute of Technology will use approximately 4,000 gallons of cooking oil this year. And every time a fryer is emptied or a skillet is drained, that goop has to go somewhere. How about into a gas tank? Over the past two years, RIT researchers, through a partnership with Monroe County’s Department of Environmental Services, have developed and fine-tuned a process to turn used cooking oil into biodiesel. The oil comes from the county’s Ecopark, a residential waste and recycling dropoff center. RIT researchers have made approximately 400 gallons to 500 gallons of fuel out of the grease, says Tom Trabold, a professor and director of the school’s Center for Sustainable Mobility. The county, in turn, uses the fuel — which burns cleaner than standard diesel — in its vehicles, primarily in its lawnmowers at Black Creek Park. The project is funded by a grant from the Environmental Protection Agency. Here’s where the campus cooking oil comes in: For the next year-and-a-half, researchers will continue to collect grease from Ecopark, but they’re also going to refine RIT’s cooking oil waste to use in the school’s vehicle fleet and to power heating equipment. Trabold says he hopes that at the end of the research and development period, there will be a routine in place so the school’s facilities department can make the fuel itself. “Our hope is that this would be kind of formally handed off to the RIT facilities people and it would just become a routine part of their operation,” he says. And he also sees an opportunity for that operation to be run by students, maybe through semesterlong co-ops.
Many an ecologically conscious gearhead
has set up a diesel vehicle to run on, say, discarded French fry grease; the conversion is relatively simple since it doesn’t involve engine modifications, just the installation of a heated fuel tank. The fundamental concept of running diesel engines on cooking oil is not new. But RIT researchers set out to develop a more refined fuel, one which burns better in the engines and maintains its integrity 6 CITY

across a broader range of temperatures and conditions. And they’ve been successful: essentially designing a process to make batches of vehicle fuel that meets industry standards, and they’re doing it with what’s basically a waste product. The process begins at the Ecopark, where staff members examine the discarded waste oil to screen out grease that’s too dirty for RIT’s use. Once they’ve collect enough oil to fill a 55-gallon barrel, they take it over to the school. RIT researchers have a machine to process the oil. First, the drum is emptied into a conical container and left to sit for several hours, so the food particles and water settle to the bottom and the oil rises to the top. The material on the bottom is let out through a valve and the oil is run through a processor, which mixes it with a catalyst to refine it. The whole process can be done in a couple of days, Trabold says. The resulting fuel is mixed with traditional petroleum-based diesel; the researchers have been using a formula called B20, which is 20 percent biodiesel. That’s a common fuel blend — one that can be used to power any diesel engine — and it burns every bit as well as standard diesel. And the federal Department of Energy says that B20 generates about 15 percent less carbon emissions than traditional diesel.
So RIT researchers have shown that they can make vehicle-grade fuel out of kitchen waste. As part of an expanded project, however, they’ll attempt to develop and study a process to turn cooking oil into heating oil. Since heating oil doesn’t have to be as pure as biodiesel, and because “rougher” stock can be used to make it, it may be more economical to produce, Trabold says. RIT officials plan to use the fuel to heat campus facilities, including the Red Barn, Trabold says, which is home to a popular climbing wall. Both processes do have a byproduct, but it’s a useful one: glycerine. Trabold says they’ll use the glycerine to make soap for the RIT Inn and Conference Center. “The bottom line is, this could be a closed-loop system,” he says, where used products are turned into other products without any significant waste. Used cooking oil may be a waste product,
but it’s also become a valuable commodity because of the biodiesel field. There was a time when restaurants had to pay someone to haul away and dispose of the grease. But now, many businesses and institutions can get paid for the waste oil; whole companies are devoted to refining the stuff into fuel. For RIT, however, on-site conversion of waste cooking oil may make more sense

than selling its grease, Trabold says. The food service providers need the oil, and the campus already uses diesel fuel. So by converting the waste grease to fuel, the school may reduce the amount of diesel it needs buy. And the school may find a way to save on heating costs. Trabold is working with two graduate students to examine the processes further: one student will focus on the vehicle fuel side, the other on the heating oil side. They’ll evaluate the economics of the process and the greenhouse gas emissions associated with making and using the fuels. That data will be helpful to other businesses and institutions trying to determine whether on-site fuel generation is a viable option for them, Trabold says. It’ll also help determine what sort of environmental benefits the fuels may offer. Many environmentalists and engineers say that building a cleaner, more sustainable power system means more reliance on localized or on-site energy generation and distribution. And that’ll mean using multiple fuel types and different technologies such as solar, batteries, and fuel cells. “This can be part of a broad energy portfolio that would be more sustainable,” Trabold says.

Acuff asks: How can the underlying causes of violence and suffering be addressed without systemic and social change? The event will be held at 929 South Plymouth Avenue.

East End story [ CHOW HOUND ] BY DAYNA PAPALEO
Empty nesters embrace their newfound freedom in different ways. Some take up golf. Some tackle the stock market. And when Kathy Christa’s kids headed off to college, she immersed herself in the study of classical French pastry techniques. Now she’s putting that education to delicious use as the pastry chef of her new restaurant, Fraîche Bistro & Dessert Bar, which recently opened in a portion of the Sagamore On East space that was formerly home to Henry B’s. “A French-inspired bistro with an American twist” is how Christa describes the elegantly appointed Fraîche, consisting of an airy white dining room with subtle rustic touches and an inviting bar area that provides additional seating. Chefs Andy Iserau and Eric Schmeelk handle the savory side of things at Fraîche, with Gallic classics like onion soup, tuna niçoise, and a lush chicken tarragon over housemade pasta vying for your attention with shepherd’s pie, shrimp and tomato scampi, and seared scallops with bacon atop a pea risotto that tastes like springtime. Now, while you’re ordering at Fraîche, it may appear as though your server has suddenly decided to text someone. This is not because you are boring. Fraîche is actually in the Rochester vanguard of the latest point-of-sale technology, an iCloudbased system that operates via iPhones, iPods, and iPads. Your order is wirelessly transmitted to the kitchen, you settle the bill right at your table, and if you’ve popped
in on a busy evening without a reservation, you can wander off for a bit and the system can contact you by phone when seating becomes available. Fraîche’s cocktails are bracing and inspired, going so far as to encompass a couple of “hard” milkshakes. (Current creations include Coffee & Donuts and Caramel Pretzel.) The pastries and muffins served at Sunday brunch allow Christa an opportunity to showcase talents that are also clearly on display at dessert in treats like tiramisu, ice cream sundaes, and an adorable blue velvet cake baked in a little Mason jar and gilded with a swirly tuft of cream-cheese frosting. Fraîche Bistro & Dessert Bar is located at 130 East Ave. It is open Wednesday-Thursday 4:30-10 p.m.; Friday-Saturday 4:30 p.m.-midnight; and Sunday 11 a.m.-3 p.m. Food prices range from $6 to $30. For more information, call 319-4313 or visit fraiche-bistro.com.
Incidentally, Fraîche isn’t the only new eatery in the Sagamore on East complex. There’s also a downtown outpost of the Moe’s Southwest Grill chain (moes.com), as well as Camarella’s (130 East Ave., 563-7912, camarellas.com), a sunny breakfast-and-lunch spot by Dave Forstbauer and chef Bonnie Camarella. Freshly prepared soups, salads with housemade dressings, paninis (Italian roast beef with giardiniera... mmmm!), and wraps are on the extensive menu, along with egg sandwiches and customizable pasta dishes. And watch for evening hours, coming soon.

for a couple of years now. The married musical couple — Hank (bass) and Cupcakes (vocals, drums) — used to shake butts on the Israeli music scene prior to moving to Cuba and eventually Brooklyn. With a publishing deal from BMG Germany and fans all across the globe, something tells me that these two are destined for world domination. Hank suspends reality with effects that make the duo sound more like a trio or quartet. Cupcakes bangs on the drums and sings like a bird.

[ REVIEW ] BY FRANK DE BLASE
Only her hairdresser knows for sure, but last time I saw Kansas City blues guitarist Samantha Fish at the Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival Big Tent, she was a blonde, and part of the Girls With Guitars three-woman ensemble. Wednesday, March 20, we all saw red... redhead, that is, as a now-auburn-tressed Fish took on the Dinosaur. Fish owned the stage with a fierce, frenetic guitar style and smoky vocals. She served up hot selections off her new “Runaway” album and stuff from the big book of the blues. My personal favorite was “Killing Floor.” Fish’s band was bare bones and bad ass in its tight, terse trio attack — lots of room for the groove to coil up and strike the feet on the dance floor. However, there was little room to cut any rug to speak of, as fans of big, bad guitar (and beautiful redheads) stood slack-jawed ringside. You can always tell when Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad is off the road, because there are multiple Dan Keller sightings as the GPGDS guitarist sits in with various bands around town. On
661 South Ave
Friday night I caught the cat tickling the ivories beneath a porkpie hat with the Greener Grass Band at the Firehouse Saloon. This place is becoming a good rock ’n’ roll hangout despite the room’s brightness (what with the tin ceiling and hard floors). The Greener Grass boys rocked steady, stealing a little from Stealers Wheel and Vangelis. (Didn’t think I’d catch that one, did ya, boys?) Saturday night at The California Brew Haus, Bordertown brought the contemporary to the stage. It was a cover affair, to be sure, but the three-part harmonies gave ownership to this fine ensemble. Slipped over to Water Street Music Hall after that where — surprise! — Dan Keller (this time guesting with his guitar) had just left the stage after playing with the folky, three-headed hippies in Extended Family. Anonymous Willpower reigned supreme while raining down some salacious, hellacious r&b that shook the walls. This was Ike and Tina with brass knuckles. It was Ray Charles with X-ray vision. It was “Walking The Dog” in heels. Can you dig it?

IT S EASY BEING GREEN [ FEATURE ] BY FRANK DE BLASE
A Green Day show is simply spectacular, but without too much emphasis on spectacle and fluff. Green Day just digs in and goes, plugs in and peels out. The band — singer/ guitarist Billie Joe Armstrong, bassist Mike Dirnt, drummer Tre Cool, and guitarist Jason White — has re-defined, or at the very least dominated, pop/punk since it first came on the scene in the early 1990’s. There’s a pile of awards and thousands of fans in the band’s wake that attest to it all. The quartet has packed a lot into the band’s nearly 25-year history. It isn’t in Mike Dirnt’s nature to look in the rearview mirror. But when he does pause and get a glimpse of his band’s long history, he’s a bit stymied. “Wow,” Dirnt says. “Where’d the time go? And how did I get so old?” Bands don’t get much bigger than Green Day. They don’t get much better, either. Formed in the San Francisco Bay Area in 1987, Green Day — along with bands like Rancid, The Offspring, and Sublime — was instrumental in re-introducing punk rock to a new generation of disenfranchised music fans who had no outlet. Grunge hadn’t been born yet, and kids were still gasping for air beneath a cloud of hairspray. In 1992 the band released “Kerplunk,” which created an underground buzz and an above-ground bidding war between record labels. Reprise Records won and released “Dookie” in 1994. With “Dookie,” and in particular the cuts “Longview,” ‘Basket Case,” and “When I Come Around” all going to No. 1 on the modern-rock charts, Green Day exploded into the mainstream. Since then the group has won five Grammy Awards, including Best Rock Album for its 2004 “rock opera” album “American Idiot.” “American Idiot” was adapted to the Broadway stage in 2010 — it will come to Rochester as part of a national tour during the Rochester Broadway Theatre League’s 2013-14 season — and received numerous Tony Award nominations. Green Day’s latest recorded output is the triple-album release of “Uno!”, “Dos!”, and “Tre!” last year. Three albums, each released a month apart. Que pasa? “We went in with a little more than a handful of power-pop songs,” says Dirnt. “And as we continued writing and got up around 28, 12 CITY MARCH 27-APRIL 2, 2013
Rock band Green Day has been music royalty since its mainstream debut in the early 1990’s. After a brief break last fall, it is back on tour with a stop at Blue Cross Arena on April 1. PHOTO PROVIDED
GREEN DAYM MONDAY APRIL 1
BLUE CROSS ARENa 1 MEMORIAL SQUARE 30 songs, we realized we were writing in three different directions. So we had these power-pop songs — and it correlated with our lives at the time, ironically. ‘Uno!’ ended up being power pop. ‘Dos!’ was just a dirty garage, sexually driven, drugged-out rock ’n’ roll record. And ‘Tre!’ was our self-reflection and redemption throughout the process. I think we came full circle, whether or not we knew it at the time.” Green Day’s double-clutched intensity and
overall sound has wavered very little
through the years. The music is loud, fast, fun, catchy, and simultaneously juvenile and profound. This is one band that got it right straight out of the gate. The sound remains the same. What’s particularly interesting about the group is the lyrical balance between its low-brow hijinks and serious social commentary. On one hand (so to speak), “Longview” is about jerking off. On the other, “American Idiot” is an angry rebuttal to the political and social horrors
of the Bush Administration, and the willful ignorance of it in the United States. Green Day walks the line. “It’s weird,” Dirnt says. “Billie will always say politics has to come from the same place — a real place — as a love song would come from. It has to come from a real place or you’re just full of it. I think that’s an important thing to this band. If we feel strongly about something, then we’re going to say it. This is our venue, our avenue to say something. And it may be political, it may be about love, it may be about hate, you name it. It can be any emotion we may have. We’re people, too. The only difference is you get to hear what we’re feeling.” If you look at the way bands like Green Day actually convey their feelings and music, the history of the group bridges the gap between the albatross of the old way of doing things and the swirling, ever-shifting music world of today. Consider, for example, releasing three albums in three months. “These are weird times,” Dirnt says. “So many of the record labels have gone away. Music is so free. I kinda like it. It’s like the Wild West on the internet nowadays.” “But there’s a yin and yang,” Dirnt says. “It’s really kind of a bummer. On one side you’ve lost all the mom and pop record stores, and you’ve lost a lot of the big chains, too. I mean, Walmart is the biggest record store in America. But on the other side of it, you’ve got a kid at home, and if he’s willing to do the work he can find all the connections to all the coolest songs I ever did, and in a hell of a lot shorter time. And you can take it one step further, and it goes back to the other side — a kid can just snatch somebody’s playlist and become a hipster DJ overnight. It’s a weird world we’re living in right now, but I like weird. I think it’s blasting down some of the genre barriers for music, because people’s iPod Shuffle mentality is so accepted nowadays. It really works for ADD kids — that’s me.” Green Day: a name you can trust. It’s as if the band is its own demographic. The members belong in the crowd with their fans. They’re one of us. “I think kids can smell a rat,” Dirnt says. “We appeal on two levels. We have an absolutely unashamed way of going after melody. Whereas a lot of people are like, ‘That’s too poppy’ — you know what? I love poppy. If you don’t like poppy, you don’t know how to do it.” “Then there’s the other side of things; we’re energetic,” Dirnt says. “There’s a certain continues on page 24

INDIE-ROCK | DESERT NOISES
With the amaranthine onslaught of bands like Fleet Foxes, Grizzly Bear, and Bon Iver inspiring the resurgence of the folk-music flag, it would seem almost impossible for a group from a small indie label in the Utah Valley to raise eyebrows in a densely populated genre market. But, Desert Noises has done just that. At a time when it’s getting harder and harder to posit an original identity, musical or otherwise, this foursome has made its mark with a straightforward songwriting approach, layers of reverb, and magnetizing live shows. The scope of their sound is impressive. There are moments of reserved roots-rock balladry, hints of playful jangle-pop, and experiments into the opulent world of modern psychedelia. Get turned on.

CELTIC | ENTER THE HAGGIS
It may take a strong stomach to dare to eat haggis, but Toronto’s world/Celtic rock band Enter the Haggis will go down much easier than the Scottish specialty. Its last album, “White Lake,” saw the group branching out and toning it down, with jazz-like and mellower offerings to complement its already strong back catalogue. Its upcoming Kickstater-funded album, “The Modest Revolution,” hits March 30, with songs based around a single news day’s headlines and stories. Fans of fiddles, world music, and Celtic rock will drink it up. Locals Sisters of Murphy opens up. Enter the Haggis performs Thursday, March 28, 8 p.m. at Water Street Music Hall, 204 N.

TUESDAY, APRIL 2 METAL | OTEP
SINGER/SONGWRITER | ALEJANDRO ESCOVEDO
Imagine if Jim Morrison had a love child with Lemmy and Trent Reznor. The result could sound like Otep Shamaya, the eponymous lead vocalist, activist, and one-quarter of L.A.-based group Otep. Since forming in 2000, Shamaya’s self-described art-core band has been a bright spot in alternative music. Otep defies labels, although most would put its aggressive guitar-driven rock and sing-rap-growl in the metal genre. Otep is charismatic and thought-provoking, and is the sort of group that can inspire you to pick up an instrument or a journal notebook or smash the control machine. With One-Eyed Doll and Picture Me Broken.
Commercial success can be kind of a back-handed compliment. Texas punk outfit Rank and File remains an underground go-to on a lot of people’s desert-island picks. And as a solo artist, one of its founders, Texas troubadour Alejandro Escovedo, has evaded true commercial glory, perhaps because he’s too pure. (After he heard that George W. Bush had his song “Castanets” on his iPod, Escovedo reportedly refused to play it live.) His last time through Rochester resulted in a magical show with some Texas-style get-up-and-go and an achingly beautiful breakdown where the band traveled acoustically to the middle of the room to play. Without Alejandro Escovedo there would be no Whiskeytown. Come see what I mean.

Literature A heroine’s journey “Into the Beautiful North” BY LUIS ALBERTO URREA SELECTION FOR THE 2013 “IF ALL OF ROCHESTER READ THE SAME BOOK…” VARIOUS EVENTS AT VARIOUS VENUES 473-2590, WAB.ORG [ REVIEW ] BY REBECCA RAFFERTY
This year’s selection for the city-wide book club, “If All of Rochester Read the Same Book...” takes readers on a journey from a rural Mexican town in trouble, across the border into an America we see through fresh eyes. “Into the Beautiful North,” which was also selected for the National Endowment for the Arts’ Big Read program, is an enthralling, epic story, one of daring and romance, of disillusionment and expanded experience. The book’s author, Luis Alberto Urrea, will visit Rochester this week. City Newspaper talked to him about the book, the real-life origins of parts of the story, and what the work has to teach us about each other. The story opens in the remote Mexican village of Tres Camarones, which most of the men have left to pursue work north of the border. In time, drug dealers and dirty cops descend on the town and threaten the remaining population. Inspired by a screening of “The Magnificent Seven,” the intrepid yet circumstantially adrift 19-year-old Nayeli devises a plan. She and three of her best friends will travel north and return with seven Mexican men to rid the town of the bandits. That covers the surface purpose of the journey, but crucial undercurrents of the story include closure-seeking, and the main character’s growth. “The entire journey is kind of a Joseph Campbell myth,” says Urrea. “In many ways, I was thinking about King Arthur, or Beowulf, or Mad Max. They’re just not written about women,” he says. By the end of the book, Nayeli has transitioned to become the warrior she seeks. Though Nayeli does bring men back — lots of them — to Tres Camarones, they “aren’t going to stand in for her, they’re actually going to back her,” he says. This is the 13th year for Writers & Books’
city-wide reading program, the goal of which is to “bring people together to talk about real-world issues and their own experiences,” says Karen van Meenan, director of special projects at Writers & Books. The organization has organized a calendar of events around the program, including book discussions and related activities in the community.
16 CITY MARCH 27 - APRIL 2, 2013
“In terms of choosing ‘Into the Beautiful North’ specifically, we were attracted to the issues around immigration,” says van Meenan. “This is as complicated and important a topic in our country today as it ever was.” Though the Rochester area has a good number of migrant workers, “it is not an issue Author Luis Alberto Urrea will visit Rochester this week to discuss that we talk about openly his novel, “Into the Beautiful North.” PHOTO BY MATT DETURCK very often,” she says. “Much of the programming around the book addressed this, from a Spanishto their call for warriors.

The divide between romantic storytelling keeps us sighing at almost the two worlds contracts and expands every turn of the page.

Through the book, Urrea Nayeli’s act of confronting her father, wished to dispel “whatever idiotic, monolithic though done with nobility and grace, is quite picture we have of anybody else,” he says. “They damning, and marks the epitome of this divide. are multifaceted just like we are, on either side.” Nayeli, too, is based on a real young woman When the nearly unsinkable Tacho — the of the same name, whom Urrea met while sole male in the quartet of travelers, who doing relief work in a Tijuana garbage dump. wishes to leave behind the doldrums of smallThe author himself was born in Tijuana, and town life and its homophobic slurs — has a though he immigrated to California at age 4, language-based misunderstanding with a post- he grew up between the two countries. 9/11-hysterical border control, the resulting It was the real Nayeli’s grandfather who scuffle is balanced later by the kindness of a was swallowed up by The North. “It’s a very close-to-retirement, burned-out border control specific story in my mind of her tragedy, but officer who is astonished by the kids’ story and I think it became emblematic of all kinds of journey. A startling interaction between Tacho, border sorrow,” says Urrea. There is a feeling that something must follow this untidy Nayeli, and some documented MexicanAmericans contrasts with many random acts of closure, which Urrea might address in the book’s possible sequel. sweetness from strangers.

DANCE/MUSIC | “AQUATEXTURE”
SPECIAL EVENT | GILDA’S CLUB BACHELOR AUCTION
I just love it when talented people combine their skills in a collaborative creation. Musical group The Quadratic Trio have composed an original work, “Aquatexture,” inspired by the sounds and feelings of great bodies or water. With the use of a quadraphonic sound system, the group will transport audiences to a watery wonderworld, promising to send your cares and concerns adrift. Paired up with the sound, the dancers of One Dance Co. (pictured) have developed a series of marine movements to enchant and thrill you.
It’s not often that you have the chance to benefit a great cause by scooping a date with a hottie. That’s exactly what you can do at the annual Bachelor Auction Fundraiser for Gilda’s Club, an organization that provides a cancer-support community for those who are ill as well as their loved ones. On Thursday, March 28, head over to Harro East Ballroom (155 N. Chestnut St.) at 6 p.m. for the bachelor meet and greet. The bidding begins at 8 p.m., and there will be an after party at 10 p.m.
“Aquatexture” will be performed at The Yards (50-52 Public Market) on Friday, March 29, at 8:30 p.m., and Saturday, March 30, at 4 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. Tickets are $10 presale and available at aquatexture.brownpapertickets.com, or $15 at the door. For more information, visit attheyards.com, and to learn more about the performing groups, check out facebook. com/onedanceco and facebook.com/thequadratictrio. — BY REBECCA RAFFERTY

KIDS | SPRING BREAK WEEK
Kids in Rochester are lucky to have plenty of fun choices for how to make the most of their upcoming spring break. If you’re feeling up for a challenge, put your mind to the test at Puzzlers School-Break Week at the National Museum of Play (1 Manhattan Square), which starts on Friday, March 29 and runs through April 7. You can help piece together “Life, the Greatest Puzzle” by New Zealand artist Royce B. McClure, which is one of the largest jigsaw puzzles ever created. Stretching more than 14 feet, featuring more than 24,000 pieces, and taking approximately 400 hours to complete, “Life” has plenty of room for everyone to make a contribution. Puzzlers Week will also include I Spy games, floor puzzles, smaller brain teasers, and the chance to make your own take-home puzzle. Events are included in regular museum admission: $13 for ages 2 and older, and free for visitors under 2 and all museum members. Visit museumofplay.org to check out the museum’s other upcoming events. Be disgusting, be destructive, and get your hands dirty at the Rochester Museum and Science Center’s “MESS-tival,” (pictured) which starts on Saturday, March 30, and continues through April 7. The program will immerse kids in the sick side of science, giving them a hands-on introduction to everything that is messy, mucky, yucky, gooey, slimy, or simply gross in nature and technology. Daily activities include Jackson Pollockstyle paint splattering, watermelon drops from the top of the planetarium, hands-on deconstructions of high-tech devices, found-object art workshops, and staff-led blender tests. (Yes, like “Will It Blend?”) The MESS-tival is included in regular museum admission: $13 for adults, $12 for students and seniors, $11 for ages 3-18, and free for children under 3 and all RMSC members. The museum is located at 657 East Ave. Go to rmsc.org for other, less messy events. If you would rather get wet than get dirty, float on over to the YMCA’s Splash Week April 1-5, with free water-safety and basic swimming courses for swimmers with little to no experience. At YMCA locations throughout the Rochester area, members and non-members of all ages can learn the buoyant basics, with both morning and evening classes available. The swimmers-tobe are broken up into age groups, from 6 months old to adults. After you’ve plunged into the deep end and mastered the breast stroke, Splash Week will conclude with family swims on Friday, April 5, 9-11 a.m. and 6-8 p.m. Splash Week courses and swims are free, but pre-registration is required through rochesterymca.org/splashweek. The registration deadline is Thursday, March 28. To find the YMCA nearest you and learn more about Splash Week and other special programs, go to rochesterymca.org. — BY JASON SILVERSTEIN

RECREATION | CORPORATE CHALLENGE TRAINING PROGRAM
The J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge, held every year at the Rochester Institute of Technology, is coming up on May 21. That may sound like it gives you plenty of time to prepare. But you know how this whole exercise thing usually turns out: it’s too cold outside today, you’re too busy tomorrow, too tired over the weekend, and before you know it, you’ve let yourself get out of shape and unfit for any kind of competition. But if you enter Fleet Feet Sports’ Corporate Challenge Training Program, those excuses won’t fly. You’ll spend the next eight weeks training regularly and rigorously under the guidance of coaches from Fleet Feet Sports. The training program kicks off on Thursday, March 28, with a workout at Genesee Waterways Center (149 Elmwood Ave.) at 6 p.m. After that, the program continues through May 18 with weekly coached workouts at Genesee Waterways Center every Saturday at 9:30 a.m. Participants can choose from one of two training programs: a walking-only program for beginner exercisers, and a learn-to-run program for those interested in a 5K. Whichever one you choose, you’ll be ready to tackle the Corporate Challenge like a boss. Registration costs $65 per person, and is limited to 100 participants.

SPORTS | MMA FIGHTING TOURNAMENT
If the term “mixed martial arts” brings back memories of being forced to imitate Tae Bo superstar Billy Blanks while still looking semi-cool during high school gym class, fear not. The Gladius Fights III Live MMA Fighting, to be held this weekend at the Main Street Armory (900 E. Main St.), won’t give you a terrifying flashback to your most awkward ninth-grade nightmares. Those were glorified aerobics they had us doing, and the real thing is a lot more entertaining — and brutal. Expect a full-contact combat sport that combines grappling and striking techniques. The fighting will take place on Saturday, March 30, at the Main Street Armory (900 E. Main St.). The main event features Rochester-based Wally MacDonald against a yet-tobe-determined opponent, with the secondary event pitting Genaro DeJesus vs Anthony Jerome. More than 12 other matches will round out the evening. Doors open at 6 p.m. and fighting will commence at 7 p.m. Tickets are $25-$500, and are available by calling 2323221 or by visiting ticketfly.com.

THEATER | “CITY LIGHTS”
There’s no place like home, there’s no place like home. That’s what three Rochester actors learned after venturing down to catch a big break on Broadway, and living to return to Rochester and tell their tales of frustration and fame. Downstairs Cabaret Theatre veterans Nicolette Hart, Tom Deckman, and Mark Bradley Miller — along with Downstairs Cabaret rookie Grace Wall — will replay their journeys to Broadway and back in “City Lights,” a world-premiere musical revue from Downstairs Cabaret that debuted last week and continues through April 14. The show illuminates each performer’s personal story with classic Broadway numbers like “All That Jazz,” “New York, New York,” and “Maybe This Time,” as well as hit songs from the likes of Bruce Springsteen, Alicia Keys, Billie Holiday, and Petula Clark. It all comes together as a tribute to the glitz and glamour of New York — but also, more importantly, to the comforts and camaraderie of the Flour City. This week “City Lights” runs at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, March 27 and Thursday, March 28, at 8 p.m. on Friday, March 29, and at 5 and 8:30 p.m. on Sunday, March 30. All performances will be held at Downstairs Cab’s location at 3450 Winton Place. Tickets are $26-$39 and can be purchased by calling 325-4370.

The “Axis of Evil” chops again [ REVIEW ] BY GEORGE GRELLA

Bush named North Korea as one of the three members of his infamous Axis of Some viewers may recall “Independence Day,” Evil. What’s a Tea Bagger to do? the 1996 movie about a massive attack on the Judging by “Olympus Has Fallen” and the Capitol, the White House, and the most famous recent remake of “Red Dawn,” North Korea monuments of Washington, D.C. That picture now replaces the Nicaragua that so frightened inspired a curious delight among the usual Ronald Reagan, and the Soviet Union, which right-wing haters, because they regarded it as an of course imploded two decades ago.

missiles in their silos, thus turning the nation into a wasteland and apparently guaranteeing themselves power and prosperity. In the film, a North Korean terrorist named Kang (Rick Yune), who has infiltrated a diplomatic visiting party from the South, leads a rogue mission, assassinating the South Korean prime minister in the White House bunker while his terrorists attack the capital with airplanes, armored trucks, and small arms. A huge bomber shoots down a couple of American fighters, strafes the streets, killing hundreds of civilians, and topples the Washington Monument. The greatest military in the world, commanded from the Pentagon, just a few miles away, proves to be impotent in the face of a concerted attack by a relatively small, heavily armed force. After the initial battle, the director concentrates on three related stories — the plight of the president and his cabinet secretaries in the bunker, the efforts of the interim president, Speaker of the House Trumbull (Morgan Freeman) to deal with the crisis, and the struggle of a Secret Service agent, Mike Banning (Gerard Butler), to work his way through the devastated White House and rescue the president’s young son Connor (Finley Jacobson) and the hostages. The deft intercutting between the three plots maintains a high level of excitement and suspense; the convincing authenticity of the sets and the procedures of the terrorists, the military,

and the agent help to balance the essential implausibility of the situation. Banning’s solo struggle against some 60 terrorists occupying the place also becomes a personal quest for redemption. He bears a burden of guilt for the events that open the film, a tragic car crash on icy roads that takes the life of the First Lady (Ashley Judd) 18 months before the Korean attack. His considerable skills and his knowledge of the geography of the White House enable him to succeed against tremendous odds on a highly dangerous and, as it turns out, insubordinate exercise in courage. Aside from all the bombings and shootings, the picture displays an extraordinary amount of personal violence, numerous instances of hand-to-hand combat that end in broken necks, strangulations, and in one important instance, a knife through the brain. To show his determination, Kang coolly and suddenly shoots several unsuspecting victims on camera for the benefit of the command post in the Pentagon, and savagely beats a couple of the captives, including the female Secretary of Defense (Melissa Leo). Mike Banning exhibits something of the same qualities as his chief adversary, acting with some of the same cleverness and ruthlessness that characterize Kang. Gerard Butler, in fact, also displays a quality that typifies the whole picture and makes him perhaps the right action hero for our time, a brutality that very closely approaches sheer sadism.
The less you know going into “Stoker,” South Korean director Park Chanwook’s stylishly macabre horror-talecum-family-drama, the more fun there is to be derived from sitting back and letting its mysteries unfold. The film marks the English-language debut of the notoriously bloodthirsty filmmaker behind “The Vengeance Trilogy” (which includes the cult-classic “Oldboy”) and the vampire thriller “Thirst.” In his latest film, half of the suspense comes from waiting to see exactly where the story is headed (although it’s always obvious that it’s nowhere good). As the film begins, sullen, teenaged outcast India Stoker (Mia Wasikowska, of Tim Burton’s “Alice in Wonderland”) has just lost her father in a car accident, leaving her alone to share an enormous house with only her cold, distant mother, Evelyn (Nicole Kidman), and a kindly old housekeeper as company. At the funeral, her mother introduces her to Charlie (Matthew Goode, all cold, dead eyes lurking behind a wide, toothy grin),

an uncle she’s never met. Uncle Charlie immediately seems to have an unnaturally close relationship with India’s mother, which naturally upsets the young girl and arouses her suspicion — especially when he turns his attentions toward India herself. Instead of choosing to keep her distance from her uncle, India is drawn closer to Charlie by his intriguing underlying darkness. The film’s three leads are uniformly great, finding just the right tone in their performances to match the heightened reality of the film that surrounds them; they constantly straddle the line between restrained and over the top. The actors are able to find just the right notes to play during the film’s many uncomfortably tense scenes that are often played out entirely through meaningful glances. Kidman’s icy demeanor has rarely been so effective, and Goode’s wholesome good looks work chillingly as a mask that doesn’t quite cover the evil underneath. The film makes no attempt to suggest that Charlie might be anything but bad news, but the suspense comes in the waiting to find out who he is, what he’s after, and why. Wasikowska is able to take a character who makes some, shall we say, questionable choices and give us just enough insight into her mindset that her actions make perfect sense. Oscarnominee Jackie Weaver (“Silver Linings Playbook”) also shows up in a brief role as a great-aunt whose fumbling attempts at warning Evelyn and India about Charlie make for some spectacularly awkward dinner conversation. “Stoker” is the first screenplay from actor Wentworth Miller (“Prison Break”), and he’s clearly a Hitchcock fan. Miller admits to being heavily influenced by “Shadow of a Doubt,” and a number of other Hitchcockian homages are
sprinkled throughout. Miller comes across as a capable writer, but I’ll admit to expecting slightly more after hearing that the script made the 2010 “Black List,” an annual industry report that highlights the best unproduced screenplays. The film is first and foremost a technical marvel; it’s always gorgeous to look at, often resembling a lushly photographed perfume ad, if perfume ads included periodic bursts of grisly violence (and I’d argue that more of them should). The film features some lovely, atmospheric production design by Rochester native Thérèse DePrez, and a moody, evocative score from Clint Mansell, featuring several piano duets composed by Philip Glass. Enjoyment of “Stoker” will hinge largely on the viewer’s patience for Chan-wook’s fastidious, mannered style of directing. Every shot is impeccably framed and edited for maximum artistic style; there’s a particularly striking transition as an extreme close-up of hair being brushed slowly fades into the tall grass of an open field. Often those kinds of flourishes can come off as overly self-conscious and distracting, but here, in the context of Chan-wook’s gothic fairytale, it works. The film goes to some dark, nutty places, so a stomach for difficult scenes — like the one in which a character masturbates while thinking back fondly on a recently committed murder — is also helpful. This is obviously not a movie for everyone, and judging from the constant, exasperated sighs I heard around me, several members of the audience I was in were just not having it. But if, like me, you’ve got a taste for the dark and twisted (more than once while watching, I thought of Lucky McKee’s demented 2002 horror-fable, “May”), “Stoker” is absolutely thrilling.

energy to us. If there’s one key factor that Green Day has, it’s probably the energy. I always say it doesn’t matter what we do, as long as we don’t go out and slaughter a bunch of bunnies — but even that might be considered OK if the music was good enough. Everything is about the music with this band. One hundred years from now I’m going to be ashes — we all will. But the music will still be there. And that’s what got me here; somebody else who is six feet under now, who was inspired to live their life the way that I’m doing. It’s a great gift they gave to me, and I’m just proud to carry the torch.” As for the legacy that he hopes Green Day leaves behind, “Music, baby,” Dirnt says. “The songs. I think what’s remained the same is our approach to writing songs,” Dirnt says. “I mean our core approach. There is so much truth in our songs, whether it’s just real or real ugly or coming from a real place. And then the fact that we have a never-say-die attitude toward our music. It doesn’t matter what’s going on out there nowadays, we’re going to keep being Green Day.” “It’s been a really great journey for our fans and for us,” Dirnt says. “The things that are different now…we’re obviously not broke anymore. But I’ve always felt the things in my life that make me happy, that I value most, money’s not an important part of those. So I think as long as you can keep that sort of perspective, then you’re in good shape. I don’t need fucking caviar on my waffles, and to this day I’m not afraid to pick up other people’s trash.” After postponing some dates after an on-stage meltdown from Armstrong in September 2012, Dirnt assures the band is primed and ready to pick up where it left off. “I think we’re ready,” he says. “There’s a reason we took so much time off, making sure we were ready. We didn’t hammer ourselves over the head. We want to go out and be successful. [We want to] play them all-out, and actually enjoy the shows, and connect with our fans and friends out there. That makes us feel like we want to do this for the rest of our lives.” That includes playing our little city along the mighty Genesee. “Last time I was there I had a great time,” Dirnt says. “And I’m gonna do it again.”

A Cozy Corn Hill Cottage
Search. Buy. Sell.
Corn Hill is Rochester’s oldest residential neighborhood. With its beautiful houses of diverse architecture, vibrant summer festival, and rich local history, it’s no surprise that Corn Hill is also one of Rochester’s favorite neighborhoods. Settled in the 1820s at the completion of the Erie Canal, the area soon became home to prominent business leaders and merchants who constructed Victorian, Italianate, and Greek Revival mansions alongside smaller more modest houses, built by craftspeople and shopkeepers, like the cottage at 14 Greenwood Street. The eye-catching red clapboard exterior of this charming 1,500 square foot house built in 1850 is enhanced with blue shutters and white trim for a truly American look. Lush plantings of holly line the front. Pine boughs fill the window boxes—sure to be replaced in time with spring and summer blooms. Inside, the yellow living room/dining room is bright and airy. Windows on three sides allow the late winter sunshine to warm this pleasant space—an ideal spot for your thriving houseplants. A 1960s renovation opened and modernized the living area, adding built-in bookcases that help to store modern technology while blending beautifully with the magnificent original oak floors. A window seat overlooks the side yard, and a closet adds always-needed storage space. The original oak floors continue in the large eat-in kitchen that overlooks the fully-fenced backyard. Colonial
blue and white wallpaper and ample, updated white cabinets are a charming combination for this kitchen while modern appliances make it functional for today’s needs. A half bath completes the first floor. Upstairs you find more oak floors in the three bedrooms—two have closets. The third bedroom with its huge skylight could work nicely as a den or office. An updated bath with a walk-in shower and a cedar closet in the hallway complete the second floor. The full basement contains the house’s mechanics as well as the laundry. The garage, an unexpected feature of a Corn Hill property, has space for one car. In addition to its beautiful houses, gardens, and parks, the Corn Hill neighborhood is famous for its two annual events—the Corn Hill Arts Festival in July and the Holiday Tour of Homes in December. The Corn Hill neighborhood is in the Rochester City School District and is served by the active Corn Hill Neighbors Association (www.cornhill.org). Several houses of worship, Corn Hill Landing, the Genesee Riverway Trail, the downtown business district, and Geva Theatre are all within walking distance. The house is listed at $154,900 with taxes of $5,008. For a tour, call Rick Leasure of RealtyUSA at 381-4400. by Bonnie DeHollander Bonnie is a Landmark Society volunteer.

Fun [ NEWS OF THE WEIRD ] BY CHUCK SHEPHERD
Can’t Possibly Be True
— Though Americans may feel safe that the Food and Drug Administration approves a drug only for certain specific uses, the U.S. Court of Appeals in New York ruled in December that drug company salespeople have a First Amendment right to claim that drugs approved for only one use can be marketed for nonapproved uses, as well. Doctors and bioethicists seemed outraged, according to the Los Angeles Times, generally agreeing with a University of Minnesota professor who called the decision “a complete disgrace. What this basically does is destroy drug regulation in the United States.” — Denials of disability allowances in the town of Basildon, England, near London, are handled at the Acorn House courthouse, on the fourth floor, where afflicted people who believe they were wrongly rejected for benefits must present their appeals. However, in November, zealous government safety wardens, concerned about fire-escape dangers, closed off the fourth floor to wheelchair-using people. Asked one woman, turned away in early February, “Why are they holding disability tribunals in a building disabled people aren’t allowed in?” (In February, full access resumed.) — Among the helpful civic classes the city government in Oakland, Calif., set up earlier this year for its residents was one on how to pick locks (supposedly to assist people who had accidentally locked themselves out of their homes), and lock-picking kits were even offered
for sale after class. Some residents were aghast, as the city had seen burglaries increase by 40 percent in 2012. Asked one complainer, “What’s next? The fundamentals of armed robbery?” (In February, Mayor Jean Quan apologized and canceled the class.) — We Must Kill This Legislation Because Too Many People Are for It: In February, the North Carolina House of Representatives Rules Committee took the unusual step of pre-emptively burying a bill to legalize prescription marijuana (which 18 states so far have embraced). WRAL-TV (RaleighDurham) reported Rep. Paul Stam’s explanation: Committee members were hearing from so many patients and other constituents (via phone calls and emails) about the importance of medical marijuana to them that the representatives were feeling “harassed.”
The Redneck Chronicles
Gary Ericcson, 46, was distraught in January at being charged with animal cruelty in shooting to death his beloved pet snake. He told the Charlotte Observer that he is not guilty, as the dear thing had already passed away and that he shot it only “to get the gas out” so that other animals would not dig it up after he buried it. He said he was so despondent (fearing that a conviction will prevent him from being allowed to have even dogs and cats) that in frustration he had shot up and destroyed a large cabinet that housed his Dale Earnhardt collectibles.
[ LAST WEEK’S SOLUTION ON PAGE 26 ]
[ LOVESCOPE ] BY EUGENIA LAST ARIES (March 21-April 19): Compatibility is key. Steer clear of anyone putting pressure on you to make a decision or to do something you don’t want to do. Having similar interests and backgrounds will make the difference between a short fling and a relationship that will lead to a commitment. TAURUS (Apr 20-May 20): Use your imagination and get involved in something you normally wouldn’t volunteer for, and you will be surprised by the relationship possibilities that develop. Sharing suggestions will make you realize how much you have in common with someone you encounter. Express your
feelings and your intentions. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Physical activity, travel and social events will lead to an interesting interaction with someone who is playful, fun-loving and looking for a special relationship. Love is in the stars, and sharing your thoughts about life and where you are heading will bring you closer together. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Talk is cheap, so unless someone is ready to make you a promise, play it cool and platonic. Time will be the true test regarding whether you have trust issues. Emotional disappointment is likely, but the experience will be worthwhile.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Hop on the roller coaster -- you don’t want to miss the action. Emotions will flare up, attraction will mount and, although it may not be a smooth ride, you’ll end up with a relationship that is passionate, intense and impossible to give up. Live, love and laugh. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Don’t let love cost you emotionally, financially or physically. You’ll attract someone unpredictable who overreacts, overdoes and overindulges. Before you decide to travel this path, question what you will end up with. Choose stability over uncertainty. It may
not be as exciting, but it will be lasting. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Finding love won’t be difficult, but changing minds and fickle hearts will make it hard to know whether you are into to someone. Enjoy the company that surrounds you and refrain from making a promise that you aren’t likely to keep. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Secretive action will get you into trouble. Expect someone to intrigue you. Temptation can lead to a vulnerable position that can damage your reputation. Honesty and integrity will be required if you want to step into a situation that will be
memorable but short-lived. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): If you aren’t happy with your personal life, make the adjustments that will allow you to turn things around. Open your heart, share your feelings and prepare to head toward someone you feel matches you mentally, physically and emotionally. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Expect ulterior motives to be behind someone’s interest in you. Back up and give whoever is trying to get close the room to show what’s really behind all the fuss. Once you establish what’s expected of you, it will be easy to manipulate the outcome.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Rely on past experience, good memories and the type of history or common interests you have with someone, and you will end up with the person best suited to you. A promise should be offered that determines how you will share love, life and future responsibilities. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Don’t put pressure on someone you are attracted to, and don’t give in to someone trying to manipulate you into something you don’t want to do. Force plays rarely work when it comes to love. Choose someone who fits your routine, lifestyle and goals.
