The region’s poverty
On “New Report Shows Stark Divide Between the City and the Region” (News): I agree that
“Anytime is Coffee Time.”
something needs to be done about poverty and accompanying racism. If we are serious, look at the governor’s proposed budget. Areas where addressing some of the issues regarding poverty include fully restoring progressive income taxes, rejecting the proposals to end the bank taxes, and collecting the stock transfer tax. These would allow the deficit to be paid and cover needs addressing poverty, including education, neighborhood development, housing, job opportunities, transportation, and green energy. This means electing representatives who do not stay with the status quo, which is designed to keep the problems at the “talking but actually do little” level. The media need to cover political progressive alternatives with greater depth and frequency. Look at the Green Party platform online. Come to the meeting that will address these issues on April 10 at 7 p.m. at the Flying Squirrel Center, 285 Clarissa Street. BONNIE CANNAN
How many more of these reports do we need? Everyone knows what and where the problems are. Imagine if all of the time and resources dedicated to creating these reports, convenings, conversations, etc. were actually used to do something about poverty? LRS

East High’s future
On “Vargas Looking for Partner for East High School” (News Blog): As a parent of children
attending city schools, I’m all for innovative ideas to improve student achievement and turn around some pretty bleak statistics in some of our buildings.
I also have a great deal of respect for our many high-quality colleges and universities in the region. When I read about these proposals, though, I feel like I’m missing something. Rankings of colleges and universities tend to equate being more selective with better – they’re more “successful” by screening out lower performing students and educating the best and the brightest. Nothing in that operating model suggests to me any particular competence or expertise with successfully educating lower performing students in an urban environment. Engagement or collaborations with our colleges could be helpful, but students in our schools face a myriad of issues and challenges not present in a college or university’s typical student. I’ll be interested to see what develops but would love to see how this model has played out in other areas before betting the farm on this approach. MATT MCDERMOTT
Climate change and Rochester
An article in Rolling Stone Magazine last summer, “Goodbye Miami,” stated that in the nottoo-distant future – 25 to 30 years – most of Miami will be under water. It is predicted that sea levels will rise as much as 3 feet by 2100. Over decades, storms will become bigger and flooding may make living in places like southern Florida impossible. Where will people migrate to when the seas rise and make living in a coastal environment impossible? The lack of fresh water in Florida, Georgia, Alabama, and other states add to the problem of living in an inhospitable area. The combination will mean that people will migrate north to the Great Lakes, where there is an abundance of fresh water. We Rochesterians live in an amazing area: Lake Ontario, Finger Lakes, fertile soil. With Lake Ontario and our climate in Upstate New York seemingly changing into more of a Maryland climate, Rochester will be a magnet for those looking for a stable environment. I spent four years on two U.S. Navy ships as a sailor in the early 1980’s. On those ships, I covered thousands and thousands of miles,
from Hawaii to Bahrain. Yes, this planet of ours is huge – but in reality, it is not. Earth is but a speck of dust in the grand scheme of things. From the surface of earth to where space starts is less than a hundred miles. That thin layer of atmosphere is all we have. As you are reading this, millions of cars and thousands of factories around the world are spewing carbon dioxide into our fragile atmosphere. An adult would have to be thinking with a 9-year-old, notfully-developed brain to think that our world will go on forever and that what we do as humans would not affect it. Maybe everything I wrote about won’t happen, but with the information we do have, it is time we started a discussion of the impact global climate change might have on our home, Rochester, New York.

I was asked by a reporter for a daily newspaper to provide on-the-record (disclosing my identity) comments on a story that was in the works. I had no problem with doing so, even though it might have meant my repercussions at my job. I am near retirement, so while it was of concern, there would be no great economic loss, even if I were fired. I was also asked to find others who were willing to comment. I asked if they could speak anonymously, but was told that it was against the paper’s policy. Many potential contributors would have suffered greatly if they were fired. I find this rather hypocritical, since the same paper continuously uses Associated Press and other news bureau’s stories that include such phrases as: “A person with direct knowledge of the death confirmed on Tuesday that ***** had died but didn’t provide further details. The person wasn’t authorized to release the information and spoke on condition of anonymity.” “The official spoke on the condition of anonymity because the investigation is still ongoing.” How can a newspaper have one policy for its own reporting and another for stories that it takes from other sources?

URBAN JOURNAL | BY MARY ANNA TOWLER
Democracy for sale If we needed any more proof of how divorced from reality the Supreme Court’s conservatives are, we got it last week, with the ruling on McCutcheon v. FEC. As Mark Shields put it on the PBS NewsHour, “these five majority justices must be hermetically sealed.” Money in politics doesn’t corrupt, according to the Supreme 5. And so, thanks to the McCutcheon ruling, there’s now no limit on the total amount of money an individual person can give to federal political campaigns. There’s still a limit on how much each of us can give to an individual candidate, political party, and party committee, but we can give to as many different ones as we like. And political parties can pool that money and put it behind individual candidates. This compounds the damage done by the same Supremes in Citizens United, which eliminated the limits on what corporations and organizations can give to political campaigns. Money in politics doesn’t corrupt? Give me a break. The big donors aren’t giving money to candidates simply because they like their looks. Their money buys access. It buys influence. It buys votes. Republicans, delighted with the ruling, praised it as a protection of free speech. “I’m all for freedom,” said House Speaker John Boehner. But some of us are also for equal opportunity. And for the protection of democracy. And the court’s rulings on campaign donations insure that there’ll be no such equality and no such protection. “What offends us about money-for-vote exchanges,” Adam Lioz wrote in the American Prospect a few days before the ruling, “isn’t the quid pro quo nature of it so much as that this type of bargaining doesn’t take place on a level playing field. After all, it’s only the prospect of contributing substantially more than fellow citizens that raises the prospect of undue influence. If we could all afford to give a member of Congress a $100,000 bribe or campaign contribution, that check probably wouldn’t buy much.” “We have a gut-level sense that we should come to the political table as equals in America,” Lioz said, “and in a very real way our outrage over corruption can be traced to the ways in which bargaining for legislative success with money leaves us far short of this ideal. It violates our basic sense of political equality – birthed in the Declaration of Independence, baptized through a Civil War, nurtured through the Progressive Era, tested and matured through the Civil Rights battles of a prior generation. Small donations from individual contributors become less and less important, Big Money from Big Donors more important. And the Big Donors want something specific: legislation that will help them, help their companies or
Money in politics doesn’t corrupt? The big donors aren’t giving money to candidates simply because they like their looks.” their organizations. And with campaigns becoming more expensive, the politicians do what they have to do to get the money. Potential Republican candidates for the 2016 presidential race have already begun to curry the favor of the rich, Mark Shields noted on the NewsHour. Five of them showed up in Las Vegas in late March “to genuflect” before casino magnate Sheldon Adelson. “They were sycophants,” said Shields. This is not democracy. And a few days after the McCutcheon ruling, New York Times finance columnist Frank Norris reminded us of the kinds of legislation that Big Money likes. A Senate committee has been investigating a tactic Caterpillar has used to lower its taxes. It simply took its name off of invoices for parts it sent to customers in other countries, substituting the name of a Swiss subsidiary. The parts “might have never come within a thousand miles of Switzerland,” Norris wrote, but Caterpillar booked the profits as though they were made by the Swiss subsidiary, saving billions in US taxes. Perfectly legal, apparently, under US tax law. Tax codes, health care, education, the environment, energy policy, minimum wage, Social Security, foreign policy: we don’t have to guess where we’re headed. The Supreme Court’s majority is removed from reality, Big Money is in charge, and we’re getting locked out of democracy.

Playing the odds
A handful of Gates residents spoke on the possibility of having a casino in their town during a meeting of the Town Board. The No More Casinos Coalition urged residents to come to the meeting to oppose a casino. Most of those who spoke asked about traffic, jobs, benefits to the town, and the process the Seneca Nation of Indians would have to follow to get the casino. Supervisor Mark Assini has been vocal about wanting a casino in Gates, although there’s no proposal currently on the table.

EDUCATION | BY TIM LOUIS MACALUSO
East High needs a buddy Rochester schools Superintendent Bolgen Vargas is looking for a partner to run East High School. Working with an educational partner organization is one of the options the State Education Department gave the school district to rehabilitate the failing high school. The request for proposals went out two weeks ago. The deadline is April 16, Vargas says, but the district may not go ahead with the partnership in the long run. This is just an option, he says. An EPO can be a college, university, or an organization with a track record of turning around underperforming schools. John Hopkins University, for
example, recently partnered with one of Buffalo’s schools. The EPO would report directly to the Rochester school board. And it could seek changes to labor agreements as a condition of coming on board. Vargas says he recognizes that students, parents, and teachers are skeptical of school turnaround plans. But the SED has provided limited options for dealing with East. He cannot design his own plan, for example, as some parents and students have suggested. Vargas says he will not recommend closing East. And his predecessor tried phasing in new schools to replace low-
performing schools, he says, and that resulted in problems. That leaves working with an EPO, turning the school over to a SUNY college, or converting East to a charter. Though Vargas hasn’t settled on an EPO, it’s an option that falls in line with what he has been talking about for several months. He would welcome a college or university taking over some of the city’s lowperforming schools, he says. Vargas has until the end of the month to make his recommendation to the SED. He says he’s also considering a second option, though he wouldn’t say what it is.

STAMP’s location problem Buildings could start going up at the Western New York Science, Technology, and Advanced Manufacturing Park in rural Genesee County within a year. But not everyone is thrilled about the park’s location. The 1,250-acre complex will be located in the Town of Alabama, northwest of Batavia, in an area blanketed with farms and protected wild areas. Government and economic development officials envision the park as a job-creating nanotech hub that’ll benefit the Rochester and Buffalo areas. The park will be a 25-minute drive from Buffalo and a 40-minute drive from Rochester. “This is a transformational opportunity for the region,” said Assembly Majority Leader Joe Morelle during last week’s meeting of the Finger Lakes Regional Economic Development Council. But members of Empire State Future, a statewide smart growth advocacy group, say that while the jobs will benefit the region, the park’s far-flung location is a net loss. Group members say the park will be an example of an inefficient location. It will mean more water lines, more power

FESTIVALS | BY JAKE CLAPP
Fenced in In order to make a more secure and better defined festival area, the Monroe County Parks Department will install a fence around this year’s Lilac Festival, organizers announced Monday. The green, plastic mesh fencing will be installed around the event area in Highland Park for the duration of the festival, which is from May 9 to May 18. The fence, a first for the festival, will include five entrance points staffed by security, and there will be an increased presence by the Rochester Police Department and Monroe County Sheriff’s Office. Security will check bags and identification at the entrance points. The addition of fencing comes after safety concerns during last year’s festival. Multiple fights broke out near the festival, leading to 16 arrests. Two police officers were injured. “We still consider this to be the safest festival in Monroe County,” said Larry Staub, county parks director, during Monday’s press conference. Organizers also announced an attempt to break a Guinness World Record on the first day of the festival, with an event being referred to as Passion for Purple. The Lilac Festival hopes to form the world’s largest “human flower” by organizing more than 2,200 people into the shape of a lilac. The record-breaking attempt will be made at 12:30 p.m. at the Lilac Center Stage in Highland Park.

A 21st century Disinvestment, deterioration, and conflicting visions have marred Rochester’s downtown for more than two decades. For years, Rochester’s main corridor has, for the most part, seemed vacant and lifeless. Major retailers folded up shop. Sibley’s and Midtown, once the epicenter of the city’s vibrancy, languished, doing relatively little to attract people downtown or to bring in revenue for the city. And more recently, all of Midtown with the exception of the tower was leveled. Even now, first-time visitors to downtown are often dismayed by what they find. But that could be about to change. Developers are sinking millions into the Sibley building and Midtown tower to transform them into hefty mixes of retail, office, and housing. The significance of the undertakings can’t be overstated; the two projects promise to give downtown’s revitalization a giant, long-awaited kick. It’s unlikely this will mean a return to the bustle of shoppers on Main Street. But some city officials say it could lead to further development, including at the northwest corner of East Main Street and North Clinton Avenue, the site of the failed Renaissance Square project. “People are very upset about the northwest corner, going all the way to the Granite building,” says Heidi Zimmer-Myer, president of the Rochester Downtown Development Corporation. “People are upset about the state of that part of the city. And people identify with it emotionally.” The redevelopment of the Sibley building and Midtown tower will help transform downtown into a 24-7 6 CITY

No building in Rochester, except perhaps the old Midtown Plaza, inspires as much nostalgia and affection as Sibley. Once a marquee shopping experience, especially during the holiday season, Sibley suffered along with the rest of the city during the post World War II exodus to the suburbs. The downtown building closed in 1990, then limped along in the custody of an apathetic owner until WinnCompanies came calling in 2009. The sale was completed in 2013. The Boston-based company is redeveloping the building for retail, offices, and housing. A new child-care center is already operating, and a police substation opened on the building’s first floor. Winn has also made some external improvements, such as adding new awnings. Winn installed a new security system with a total of 57 cameras inside and outside the building. It has also started redoing the building’s main atrium and has put in a couple of historically sensitive escalators. “The cool thing about Sibley was they got the first of everything,” says Joseph Eddy, vice president for WinnDevelopment, the real estate development arm of

Winn will develop 91 mixed-income senior
apartments in the project’s first phase and 100 market-rate apartments in the second phase. They will be mostly one- and two-bedroom apartments, but there will be handful of threebedroom apartments, too, Eddy says. “We’re still finalizing our design for the apartments,” he says. “But we expect the amenities to be similar to most of our apartment communities: community

lounge, workout facility, theater room, and rooftop garden.” The second phase also includes 50,000 square feet of office space, 10,000 square feet of retail, and a farmers market. The third phase adds 50,000 square feet of retail and 150,000 square feet of office space.
The goal, Eddy says, is to break ground on the first phase of the $200 million project at the end of the year, with completion taking 10 years. Neither the RDDC’s Zimmer-Myer nor those involved in the downtown housing market are too concerned about filling up
childless couples, and young professionals in particular are increasingly interested in an urban lifestyle. The trend is apparent in major cities such as Boston, New York, and San Francisco, Eddy says, but also in next-tier cities such as Pittsburgh. “Rochester is just going to be the latest example of that,” he says. Eddy is also betting that the Sibley name and the building’s location will appeal to prospective tenants. “It’s amazing how much people love this building,” he says. “We’ve never worked on a building where people care so much. You can see why. It oozes history.”
The fourth and final phase is the redevelopment of the 225,000 square feet currently occupied by Monroe Community College on the fourth and fifth floors. MCC has three years left on its lease, and then plans are to move the college out to the Kodak building on State Street. Eddy says Winn will look for another institutional tenant to replace MCC at Sibley. There will be parking underneath the building for the people living in the Sibley apartments and limited parking for office tenants.
Sibley’s new housing units. The downtown housing market, as well as the market in certain neighborhoods such as the South Wedge, is hot. Downtown’s residential population grew by 11.5 percent from 2000 to 2010, the RDDC says, and many property managers say that vacant units fill in under a month. The vacancy rate for market-rate rentals is 4.9 percent — a 2.3 percent decrease from August 2012. Zimmer-Myer has spoken many times about the demographic shift happening in cities across the country. Baby boomers,
Sibley’s future office space is a bit of a different story. The limitations imposed by the building’s historic designation, coupled with Sibley’s size and layout, translate to an opportunity that won’t be appreciated by everyone, Eddy says. The office space won’t have an abundance of window area, Eddy says, and it will have comparatively huge floor space. “We understand we’re not going to get a certain type of tenant because they want a lot of window area to square footage,” he says. “We’re going after the tenants that want these large floor plates, that want to be on one floor. It has that innovative feel. We’ve seen a lot of that in Cambridge. They want to be in historic buildings, and they love these large floor plates.”
The Windstream company is using the bullpen layout at Midtown, Zimmer-Myer says, and Windstream’s CEO says the layout fosters creativity. “It makes it more of a team atmosphere,” she says. “You don’t have to change floors or go through doors to different offices. And if you do it properly, you can still have sound control, enough privacy for people.” The vacancy rate for premium office space downtown, which is the kind of space that will be available at the Sibley building, is 22 percent — a scary number on the surface. But Zimmer-Myer says the rate includes some large properties owned by people from outside the area who aren’t as motivated as local property owners. And like the demand for housing, she says, demand for office space in the city is picking up. It’s surprising, she says, because most experts thought retail would follow housing, but instead, office space has been the next pin to fall. “We thought, ‘Well, those guys will be the last to come back, if at all,’” ZimmerMyer says. “And it’s actually been the reverse. The retail has been very much later, although that’s starting now, too.” Windstream built its new headquarters downtown. And fast-growing, creative-class companies such as D4, Brand Networks, and CGI Communications are coming back to the city, Zimmer-Myer says. “All three of them are young, entrepreneurial kinds of companies,” she says. “And they’re growing by leaps and bounds. CGI, for example, is taking over almost the entire building. And they’re hiring 100 people this year.” continues on page 8 rochestercitynewspaper.com

MIDTOWN TOWER From the intersection of East Broad and Chestnut streets, you can peer through the rusty steel skeleton holding up what used to be Midtown tower. The massive 17-story structure is a ghostly reminder of the Midtown Plaza complex. The gutted tower, with its weathered brick facade, is surrounded by a chain-link fence dotted with no trespassing signs. It looks as if it’s being stripped for scrap materials, but the reality is that its next life is about to begin. The Tower at Midtown is a joint venture of Buckingham Properties and Morgan Management, two of the area’s most established real estate development and property management firms. The tower will be a mix of office, retail, and mostly market-rate housing, says Larry Glazer, CEO and managing partner of Buckingham Properties. The first three floors, roughly 160,000 square feet, plus a small addition, will be devoted to retail and commercial office space. The remaining floors will be converted to about 180 apartments composed of studios and one- and twobedroom units. Glazer says the units will be wired for Wi-Fi. Some units will have their own laundry hookups and there will be shared laundry facilities and a dog park. Two-bedroom units will run about $900 to $1,200 a month, Glazer says, and all units will include water, heat, and parking. The tower will have more than 400 underground parking spaces and tenants will be able to use an elevator inside the garage to get to the tower. Craig Jensen of Chaintreuil Jensen Stark Architects is the lead architect on the $55 million project. Work on the tower will begin next month, Glazer says, and take about a year to complete. Glazer says he’s still working on what type of retail might occupy space on the ground floor, but he doesn’t want anything too high end. He says he’s considering everything from restaurants and small grocery stores to clothing and gift boutiques. “It’s like putting a jigsaw puzzle together,” Glazer says. Glazer is also trying to bring a movie theater to the Midtown site. It

“It’s like putting a jigsaw puzzle together.” Larry Glazer, on Midtown tower
would be located on a portion of the tower’s lot and a portion of the adjacent lot, he says. Though the tower lacks the Sibley building’s historical cachet, it still captures the attention of Rochesterians with fond memories of Midtown Plaza, says the RDDC’s Zimmer-Meyer. “Anything connected with Midtown has a strong emotional resonance with people here,” she says. And the building will have another selling point not often associated with residential properties in Rochester: fabulous views. In larger cities like New York, Chicago, and Toronto, tenants pay more for apartments on higher floors. Comparatively speaking, she says, the Tower at Midtown will offer tenants a lot for their money. Some apartments will have views of the Genesee River, Lake Ontario, and the hills south of the city. The Midtown Plaza complex of retail shops and offices, which included the tower, occupied seven and a half acres from East Main to East Broad streets. It was part of a campaign launched in the late 1950’s by Gilbert and Gordon McCurdy and Maurice and Fred Forman to reinvigorate downtown. Architect Victor Gruen was brought on board, according to Karen McCally’s “Rochester History – The Life and Times of Midtown Plaza.” Gruen, often cited as one of the most influential architects of the 20th century, was a central figure in environmental architecture. The movement stressed design that embraced social interaction and pedestrian-friendly streets. For most Rochesterians, the water fountain, Clock of Nations, and cluster of finer stores defined Midtown Plaza during its heyday in the 1960’s and 70’s. Though there was resistance to the plans to demolish the plaza, the public was less vocal about saving the tower. But Zimmer-Meyer says reusing the building makes good economic sense. “It’s a good investment,” she says. “Just consider the cost of steel alone.” Making use of the city’s older buildings makes sense in the long run, she says, because the ability to recreate high-rise buildings like the tower is limited. For many years, Sibley and Midtown

have been monuments to what downtown Rochester has lost: population, retail, jobs, and the feeling of a vital, vibrant place. That is changing, Zimmer-Myer says, and Sibley and Midtown are part of continues on page 32

Waterfront development public meeting
The City of Rochester’s Department of Neighborhood and Business Development will hold a public meeting on the Local Waterfront Development Program from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Wednesday, April 9. The program collaborates with the New York Department of State to establish guidelines for developing the area’s key waterfronts: Lake Ontario, the Genesee River, and the Erie Canal. The meeting will be held at City Hall, 30 Church Street.
East Rochester schools will show the documentary film “Who Cares About Kelsey?” at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, April 9. The Emmy-nominated film directed by Dan Habib tells the story of a troubled young girl who struggles with homelessness and severe emotional problems. She goes from a problem student to a confident and motivated learner. The film will be shown at the East Rochester school system at 222 Woodbine Avenue (at Garfield Street), East Rochester.
Fixing the parole system

The paragraph should have read: “Builders all strive for the same thing,” he says. “Great playability, great sound, great tone. On an individual basis, it’s a relationship thing with my customers. When they want something built that’s specific to them, it’s sort of a joint venture, a collaborative effort to some extent. I think the chemistry between me and my clients sets me apart in some ways. I’m just happy seeing someone get it and know that they’re satisfied.

Back to the neighborhood [ CHOW HOUND ] BY KATIE LIBBY
A neon sign stating “Sorry We’re Open” greets you as you walk in the door of the newly renovated Bosco’s Richmond’s Tavern. The “Bosco’s” might be new, but Richmond’s has been an establishment in Rochester for years. Located on Richmond Street, a small side street off of Main Street, Richmond’s had been a destination for live music and its famous chicken wings until it closed at the beginning of 2011. Enter Lin Bosco, the new owner of Bosco’s Richmond’s Tavern. Bosco decided it was time to give Richmond’s a facelift, renovating and reopening the bar in November of 2011. Despite the renovation, Richmond’s still has the feel of a good old neighborhood haunt. The space is small and intimate, with a large bar and open kitchen that leads to a stage area in back for the many musical acts that perform at Richmond’s on a weekly basis. The night I visited, the venue was hosting The Roc City Pro Jam (it takes place the first Tuesday of every month), and it was nice to see the wide array of local musicians that were showing up lugging instruments and amps. Richmond’s has a nice selection of beers on draft, including local brewery Three Heads’ Kind IPA. Stairs lead up
to a rooftop deck that I will definitely be taking advantage of once the weather permits. In addition to the tavern’s interior, the menu got a makeover as well -- except for those famous chicken wings. When Bosco took over, the chicken-wing recipe stayed the same. And speaking of those wings, there’s a reason that they’re famous. My group indulged in the sriracha-honey and the garlic-parmesan wings (five for $5.25), and found the sriracha-honey wings to be a perfect blend of hot and sweet. Don’t worry; you can still get the traditional Buffalo offerings in mild, medium, and hot variations. The burgers at Richmond’s are massive. The Richmond’s burger ($9.50) features a half-pound patty served with cheddar-jack cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion, and Richmond’s Famous Sauce. Add a fried egg to a burger for a buck extra. Those looking for lighter fare are probably not going to find it here, there is a salad on the menu…with hickory-smoked bacon and blue cheese dressing. But isn’t that the pleasure of bar food? It’s not supposed to be healthy. It’s supposed to be a finger-lickin’ accompaniment to a frosty beverage, and you can find plenty of it here. Bosco’s Richmond’s Tavern is located at 21 Richmond St. It is open Monday-Wednesday 4 p.m.-2 a.m.; Thursday 2 p.m.-2 a.m.; and Friday-Sunday
noon-2 a.m. Food prices range from $3 to $19.25. For more information, call 270-8570, or visit richmondstavern.com.

is that they frequently run it into the red, horse it in to the boat, jump the shark … you get what I mean. The rock side in bands like the Dropkick Murphy’s or Flogging Molly seems to predominate. Not so with Tempest. Founded in 1988, the band immediately separated itself from the Celtic horde by infusing its music with traditional European folk and progressive rock. Though that may come across like a heavy brew, live, Tempest leans toward the music’s timeless joy and drive. — BY FRANK DE BLASE
I’ve always been in awe of the amount of sunshine The Squires of the Subterrain packs into its sound. Consider the fact that The Squires is really Christopher Earl, a one-man band operating out of his secret basement lair tucked away somewhere in the South Wedge. The sound has always been psychedelic pop with liberal sprinkles of bubblegum — there’s as much Amboy Dukes in there as there is Donovan and The Archies. In this respect, Earl has remained constant in the Squires’ new CD “Stereo.” The layered studio sugar remains, but Earl has plugged in cats like guitarist Phil Marshall, trumpeter Scott Bradley, and bassist Kit Nelson. There is a nice mix of magical mystery tones and textures while lyrically it comes off light-hearted, calling to mind countless transistor radio gems of my youth. Dig the Kinks? Randy Newman? Flo and Eddie? Then by all means take a trip to the subterrain in “Stereo.” — BY FRANK DE BLASE

Kat Wright and the Indomitable Soul Band “…. Introducing Kat Wright and the Indomitable Soul Band” SELF-RELEASE Katwrightsoulband.com
The problem with a lot of soul bands is when they get too regimented in their pursuit of pure soul. And there are others who just set themselves up for a fall when incorporating soul into their name. The Burlington-based Kat Wright and the Indomitable Soul Band has neither of those pitfalls to sweat about. The band started up in 2010 and is fronted by the Rochesterborn singer Wright, who despite her flexibly gorgeous contralto offers so much more than soul histrionics and window-dressing. On this, the band’s debut platter, you’ll find a groove that doesn’t let up as the band introduces a sort of jam band aesthetic along with things like hip-hop and funk. It’s as if the band is taking soul influences from a new generation of bands that augment their sound with it… kind of like influence in reverse. The band is indeed indomitable, but soul is just the beginning. — BY FRANK DE BLASE

Music Where do The Heroic Enthusiasts fit in the whole musical scheme? Tabbi: There’s a lot of good stuff going on
for the moment; the Americana movement, there’s great stuff coming out of Brooklyn … what we’re doing is looking at that, respecting that, at the same time bringing the fact that we’ve lived 20 or 30 years more than a lot of people writing these songs. And I feel we have a lot of insight to add to the songs. So what is it? What do you call it? Tabbi: It’s alternative, indie music,
that’s what it is. There’s no new modern classification for it. When I think about what we’re doing, the sound that we’re creating … if I had to make some parallels through history it would be like Echo and the Bunnymen, Radiohead, Coldplay. There’s a common thread through a lot of that guitar pop. We know and lived those decades musically and physically, so we draw on all that history. It’s not the sweet and creamy appeal you associate with pop. Tabbi: No, it’s a little darker. It’s not fluff pop The Heroic Enthusiasts is (from left to right) Cruk Fua, Thomas Ferrara, and James Tabbi. Pictured here is former bass player James Searl.

Born barely one year ago, Rochester’s The Heroic Enthusiasts fall between genre cracks, it’s rock ’n’ roll twilight. The band — James Tabbi, guitar, Tom Ferrara, guitar, Jesse Herrera, bass, and Cruk Fua, drums — is more about the antithetical than the quintessential. The songs are melodious meanderings full of a loosely harnessed energy and an abstract antagonism. And it sounds good, it’s a trip you ought to take. Where every decade holds claim to specific musical ideas, artists like The Talking Heads, Lloyd Cole, Echo and the Bunnymen, REM, or The Cars, borrowed from and simultaneously smashed these chronological restraints. It’s this maverick ideal that The Heroic Enthusiasts adheres to, as well. For those clutching wildly in 14 CITY APRIL 9-15, 2014
CITY: How did The Heroic Enthusiasts come to be? James Tabbi: We had worked together on a
few musical projects previously that never really took off. This time the stars seemed to align. We got together at a time we were both creatively ready, willing to focus. The idea for the Heroic Enthusiasts … we first got together, a lot of stuff poured out about relationships and love and I happened to be reading Giordano Bruno at the time and he wrote a piece called the Heroic Enthusiast — which ended up getting him executed.
But you have a formula to your writing, right? Tabbi: When we first started writing we
purposely gave it the Heroic Enthusiasts approach.
Rock ’n’ roll twilight the air for something — anything — familiar, indie rock and alternative, as hackneyed as those labels have become, are relatively accurate in describing this interesting quartet. The songs the band has laid down so far are beautifully atmospheric with a simple push and pull dynamic between the head and the feet; you’ll want to listen and decipher and understand, but you’ll also want to cut some rug. Tabbi and Ferrara stopped by to discuss shunning formulas, not being major or minor, and the evolution of a band. An edited transcript follows.
and we’re really not that formulaic.
He’s experiencing a resurgence now thanks to “Cosmos.” Is his demise a metaphor as to where the band is going? Tabbi: You never know. Tom Ferrara: I think it’s a reverse analogy, what
we were trying to do was music that’s new but also connected with the people left hanging there, who were into music in the 1980’s and 1990’s, that aren’t into what’s going on now, who wanted something fresh, not totally replicative of what went on in the 1980’s and 1990’s. People hear us and they say “I hear some Doors in there,” this and that. But to me it’s the songs. We’ve written 15-16 songs since January of last year and we’re already evolving. Did you have any outside help? Ferrara: We contacted mixing engineer and
Rochester native Mick Kawalski [Daft Punk] and he stressed more work be done on our arrangements. We listened to his suggestions and we’ve written seven songs since then, and I think our arrangements are much better now. We have developed this sort of signature atonality that rings though our songs; not major or minor, but just out there.
Did you even know what that was? Tabbi: No, because even now looking back,
there are a few songs that no longer fit, that are no longer relevant to what the band has become. They were early tries at getting a sound.
Are you there yet? Ferrara: We’re heading in the direction we
want to be. We don’t have any delusions about being rock stars. But this is the best, most creative, most focused project I’ve ever worked with.
What do you think it will evolve into? Tabbi: At our first gig, people came up to
me and said, ‘I felt like I was listening to something for the first time, something that was going to be something.” Ferrara: It feels like something that could be wildly popular, but we’re not worried about that, that’s not our goal. Is that important to an audience that may be there just to drink beer and dance? Tabbi: This blew me away; when we played
our first show, the songs I wrote that I thought were dark, people were dancing to. So I went back and listened and it was like, ‘Yeah, these are fun, danceable songs.

With songs like “Lemme Smang It,” “Treat Me Like a Pirate,” and “Fried or Fertilized,” hip-hop collective and record label Turquoise Jeep holds nothing back. The group’s music is bold, irreverent, and satirical, and the corresponding YouTube videos go viral for their seemingly unintentional comedic value. Turquoise Jeep approaches hip-hop and R&B with a tone that makes the listener question whether something out of the ordinary is really going on. But the blurred line of fake beards, impossible pick-up lines and deadseriousness while singing “Treat me like a pirate and show me that booty,” has won over international fans and boosted Turquoise Jeep videos to over 30 million YouTube views.

POP-PUNK | THE WEAKS
Philadelphia-based band The Weaks has an affinity for combining catchy, bubbly melodies, noisy punk-influenced accompaniment, and lyrics full of self-loathing. The band released their first EP, “The World Is A Terrible Place and I Hate Myself and I Want To Die” in February, containing six tracks that are clearly inspired by punk-influenced bands of the mid-90’s like Weezer, Foo Fighters, and Jawbreaker. Similar to the aforementioned bands, The Weaks isn’t afraid to scatter classic-rock influences throughout its music, mostly evident in the Queen-esque guitar solos. The Weaks performs with Ma Jolie, Ghost Righter, Wixley & Crump, and Dreameaters on Saturday, April 12, 3 p.m. at the Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Avenue. Tickets are $7 advance and $9 at the door.

METAL | DESTRUCTION
Few subgenres can set the pulse racing like German metal. German bands — Accept, Rammstein, Scorpions — tend to perform in ways that skew them toward symphonic and danceable angles. While most other metal groups make you want to bang your head, German bands make you want to sing opera and swing your partner. Teutonic rock gods Destruction sound a bit more abrasive — rocking out faster, harder, and tighter than the rest of its ilk. It seems like yesterday face-melting classic album “Release from Agony” hit the shelves, but unbelievably Destruction is out to (presumably) destroy North America with its 30th anniversary tour. Destruction performs with Krisiun and Exmortus on Friday, April 11, 6:30 p.m. at Montage Music Hall, 50 Chestnut St. Tickets are $20 via Frontgatetickets.com. — BY ROMAN DIVEZUR [ JAZZ ]

HIP-HOP | HUEY MACK
JAZZ | GABRIEL ALEGRIA AFRO-PERUVIAN SEXTET
One of the first lines in Huey Mack’s album “Pretending Perfection” reads, “They say I’m not a star, and they may be right.” Right now, that’s probably an accurate statement. He doesn’t play huge venue, you won’t hear him on the radio, and his songs don’t have millions of views on YouTube. But that may soon change. The West Virginia-born rapper has a nice flow and a surprisingly good singing voice, that when combined results in a style reminiscent of Drake. Listen to his rap/country hybrid song “Country Roads.” You’ll get what I mean.
If you’re a jazz fan, chances are you know the AfroCuban music popularized by artists like Dizzy Gillespie. But have you heard the equally engaging Afro-Peruvian music of Gabriel Alegria and his sextet? A trumpeter of extraordinary skill and exuberant style, Alegria has brought his wonderful brand of fusion to festivals around the world. From the energized sax solos of Laura Andrea Leguia to the zapateo dancing of percussionist Freddy “Huevito” Lobatón, every member of Alegria’s band embodies the spirit of the music

When lists of the great composers are compiled, Johann Sebastian Bach is usually placed at or near the top. And at the top of Bach’s enormous and awesome musical output, many would place his two settings of the biblical Passion text: the story of the arrest, trial, and crucifixion of Jesus Christ. Bach’s “Saint Matthew Passion” is frequently heard during Lent, his “Saint John Passion” less often. But a concert this weekend presented by the Rochester Bach Festival gives audiences the opportunity to hear it. Bach spent many years as the music director of St. Thomas Church in Leipzig, where his many duties included the writing of hundreds of cantatas for daily and weekly worship, as well as larger pieces such as his Passions. Bach wrote the “Saint John Passion” for performance on Good Friday 1724. This very thorough composer wrote a setting of each of the Evangelists’ accounts of the Passion, but only the “Saint John” and “Saint Matthew” versions survive in full. Only the text of a “Saint Mark Passion” survives, and nothing at all of a “Saint Luke.”
Composers before Bach wrote settings of the Passion story, but his were the most ambitious and lasting. An opera depicting the Passion would have been unthinkable in Bach’s time, but the musical intricacy and dramatic impact of his settings can be described as operatic. In both his existing Passions, Bach uses a tenor soloist as an Evangelist (narrator) and a bass or baritone as Jesus; other soloists play smaller roles (like Peter or Pontius Pilate), or sing arias reflecting on the events in the story. The chorus plays a very large part, either as people of Jerusalem or in singing chorales — hymn tunes Bach’s Lutheran audience would have recognized (and to which they could have sung along). The grandeur of Bach’s Passions has in the past often led to slow-paced, heavy performances, performed by forces much larger than Bach would have wanted. Scholarship in recent decades has revealed much more about how works like Bach’s Passions were originally performed, and this weekend’s performance, directed by David Chin, will reflect that. Instead of a chorus of dozens and an orchestra to match, a total of 22 musicians are involved. This is the new normal for performances of large 18th-century works, according to Chin. This includes Bach’s 200-plus surviving cantatas. Chin has led several of these beautiful works in the past year, using only one singer on a part and a few instrumentalists. A bigger work like the “Saint John Passion” calls for a bigger
choral and instrumental sound, but it will still be relatively intimate. According to Chin, this reflects the difference between John’s gospel account and Matthew’s. “The tone of John’s Passion story is more personal, and more intimate – a very different perspective from Matthew’s. So the piece is more reflective and uses fewer soloists,” Chin says. He adds that while Bach revised his “Saint John Passion” several times, the fourth and final version — which is what will be performed Sunday night — is very close to the 1724 original. “In preparing the ‘Saint John Passion,’” Chin says, “I was thankful to have had the opportunity to conduct nine of Bach’s cantatas in the past year, here in Rochester and at a choral festival in Hong Kong,” he says. “Most of the Bach cantatas are laid out as an opening chorus, a recitative and aria, a chorale, another aria, another chorale and so on. The Passion follows the same structure — it’s like several cantatas in one continuous work.” For such a large and detailed work, the written score of the “Saint John Passion,” like other works of Bach, Vivaldi, Handel, and other 18th-century masters, leaves a lot of leeway to performers — what is on the page is only the beginning. Choices need to be made about tempos, ornamentation (decorative notes added at the performer’s discretion), and instrumental textures. For example, says Chin, while Sunday’s performance will use a harpsichord during the Evangelist’s recitatives — typical 18th-century practice — it will use the organ to accompany Jesus, giving an aural “halo” to his words. “This is what I love about Bach, and about baroque music in general,” says Chin. “You must use your imagination and be creative in fulfilling the sound of the music and the emotion of the words.” Chin is the director of choral activities at Roberts Wesleyan College. A native of Malaysia who studied in Florida and Virginia before coming to Eastman School of Music for a master’s degree in choral conducting, he’ll be returning to Eastman in the fall to begin a doctoral degree. Chin says that he came to Bach’s music through his love of such masterpieces of religious choral music as Handel’s “Messiah,” Haydn’s “Creation,” and Mendelssohn’s “Elijah.” “Those composers all referred to Bach as their musical father,” says Chin. “Great as he was, nobody could truly follow in Bach’s footsteps. No one else has been able to express such a deep musical and religious vision in such a personal way. His music has been called ‘three-dimensional theology.’”

In 2012, after MAG staff added the “Matisse as Printmaker” exhibit to the future lineup, two different colleagues approached MAG Director of Exhibitions, Marie Via, about the French artist’s great-grandson, who was making a comparatively quiet but impressive impact from his small studio in North Carolina. Contact was made, and Alexander agreed to gather some of his work to accompany the exhibit of his greatgrandfather’s prints. This exhibit showcases Alexander’s work

[ REVIEW ] BY REBECCA RAFFERTY
When we come to admire an artist’s work, what we see is the expert representation of form and gesture, the elegant depiction of balance, and the rich tones carefully chosen to lead our emotions here and there. What is hidden from us are the long, laborious hours and obsessive repetition required for achieving the necessary muscle-memory, and the blood, sweat, crushing doubt, and stubborn dissatisfaction that accompany a person’s resolve to master one medium, or many. But, as evidenced in Memorial Art Gallery’s current show, those who fully dedicate themselves to their craft can achieve greatness. The dual exhibition brings together masterful works from the print portfolio of French 22 CITY APRIL 9-15, 2014
artist Henri Matisse and the stunning ceramic works of his American great-grandson, Alexander Matisse. It’s easy to detect what makes Alexander Matisse a different kind of artist from his great-grandfather. As painter, sculptor, and printmaker, Henri was prolific in several media and known for his figurative work, while Alexander’s star is on the rise for his beautifully constructed and functional ceramic work, which carries the torch of the centuries-old Carolina pottery tradition. But by bringing together examples of their work, the MAG offers a unique opportunity to explore how each has manipulated his medium to showcase the pleasing curves of earthly forms, the grace of proportional balance, and the power of subtlyor richly-adorned bareness. The “Matisse as Printmaker” exhibit is drawn from the Pierre and Tana Matisse Foundation, and highlights the quantity and diversity of Matisse’s printmaking oeuvre from throughout his career. Included here are examples of his work within the aquatint, drypoint, etching, linoleum cut, lithograph, monotype, and wood cut techniques. “Seated Nude, Viewed from Behind” is a striking 1913 crayon transfer lithograph. The fewest possible lines form hair parted in two cloudy mounds resting on hunched shoulders, and the undulating curves of her back, hips, and hand. Matisse’s range of style even within the same medium is underscored with examples from his more fleshed-out
tonal mode, such as “Large Odalisque with Bayadère Culottes,” dated 1925. Decades are represented in wood cut nudes amid a buzz of kinetic patterning, a series of expressive faces captured in thick strokes of lift-ground aquatints, and repetitions of themes with studied, just-so variations in each. It’s clearly seen in a 1929 series of small, linear etchings of a woman dreamily staring into, away from, and eventually, dreaming next to a fishbowl. Though Alexander is the great-grandson of Henri Matisse, the fact is not something you’ll find boasted on his East Fork Pottery website. The ceramicist simply states that he comes from a family of artists, which is true, as Alexander was raised by two artists whose work ethic and creativity are evident influences on him. Though he has quite a few gallery exhibitions on his resume, this is the first museum show for the young artist, who was born in 1984. One megalithic lineage might be daunting enough for most people to tackle, but Alexander’s trajectory led him to adopt a second artistic heritage: that of the Carolina pottery tradition. Born and raised in New England, Matisse briefly attended Guilford College in North Carolina before committing himself to a three-year apprenticeship in the workshops of North Carolina potters Matt Jones and Mark Hewitt. In 2010, he founded and constructed East Fork Pottery outside of Asheville, N.C., where he and a growing collective of craftspeople
from the past five years. Matisse’s expertly formed range of vases, chargers, and pitchers are each objects of utility and beauty. His “Urchin” forms are squat vessels with small mouths, and range in size from able to fit within two cupped hands, to another too large to enclose with two arms. Offered in a similar range of sizes is the “Ometto,” a sculptural, closed vessel which Matisse says he pulled from the tradition of poor AfricanAmericans unable to afford head stones, who would hire potters to make these forms to serve as inexpensive grave-makers. Matisse’s work nods to the Carolina tradition not only in form, but also in the “undefined, ruddy, and serendipitous” surface treatments, he said at his Sunday, April 6, artist talk held at MAG. These ash and salt glazing techniques not only make the woodfired works functional by sealing the porous surfaces, they also contribute a gorgeous — and unpredictable — richness in texture and tone. The drippy ash glaze creates a subtly dazzling, crystalline appearance, showcased beautifully here under the care of MAG’s lighting designer, Nic Minetor. A more structured layer to the surface design is added to many pieces: elegant organic or geometric patterning is achieved through Matisse’s steady hand at slip trailing, a traditional technique of adding low-relief patterning by painting with watery clay. Though he draws from the Carolina tradition’s vernacular, Matisse is always honing and evolving his craft, which makes for frustrating days, even at his level. “One’s eye always learns faster than the hand,” he says of trying moments at the wheel. The lovely work may speak of nostalgia for a slower, mostly bygone era, but it is anything but stale. Amid art movements which strive ever to capture the next newest thing, Matisse is comfortable making his statement as a bridge, pulling the past into the present. “To be a potter in the 21st century is a form of quiet protest in itself,” he says.

Theater bit of life, which gives “Closer Than Ever” a sense of unity and a pleasingly adult air. This is no Disney musical. Maltby and Shire’s songs are so well executed, and they present characters and dramatic situations so effectively, that they are tiny book shows in themselves. That is certainly true of such “Closer Than Ever” numbers such as “What Am I Doin’?” (a scary-funny portrait of a young man “out of his mind with love”), “The Bear, the Tiger, the Hamster, and the Mole” (a diatribe on animal reproduction delivered by a scientist considering conceiving a child without a husband), and “Life Story” (which is, well, the life story of a woman, from the 60’s to the 80’s).

If you’re not a musical-theater fanatic, you’ve probably never heard of Richard Maltby, Jr. and David Shire. But if you enjoy theater songs, or just about any kind of songs, you definitely need to make their acquaintance. Everyone’s Theatre Company is providing a very entertaining survey of this team’s stellar work in the revue “Closer Than Ever,” which opened last Saturday and continues this weekend. Maltby (the lyricist) and Shire (the composer) have collaborated since the 1950’s, but they have probably been more successful on their own than as a team. Maltby won a Tony for directing “Ain’t Misbehavin’” and also wrote lyrics for “Miss Saigon”; Shire is an Oscar-winning movie composer. As Maltby and Shire, they’ve written two musicals that made it to Broadway — “Baby” and “Big” — and a bunch of others that didn’t. This sizeable catalogue has been mined for two revues: “Starting Here, Starting Now,”
from 1977, and “Closer Than Ever,” first produced in 1989. But if it’s true that unsuccessful shows can contain plenty of gems, “Closer Than Ever” is a jewel box: an evening of terrific songs with Shire’s driving, tuneful music and Maltby’s witty, pointed lyrics. I have to tip my hat to a writer who rhymes “Prelude” with “Quaalude.” During the comedy numbers, you may find yourself leaning forward in your seat so that you’ll catch every word — including a few 1980’s references that are wisely unchanged. The songs are drawn together by a theme:
opening the doors that life puts in front of you and dealing with whatever you find behind them. So the first song is literally an opening number, with the performers entering from four brightly painted doors and singing about life’s possibilities. The songs that follow explore many of the possibilities, and despite their various sources, they hang together nicely. The subject matter is often pretty everyday — longtime friendships, marriages, second marriages, children, aging parents — but this team mines familiar subjects for emotions and situations you don’t always find in theater songs. They’re also emotions and situations best appreciated by people who have seen a
the page is matched by the performers’ teamwork on the stage, provided by a cast of just four nicely contrasted singeractors: Lance Anderson, Ruth Bellavia, Jeff Clair, and Laura Marron. (Robert Sharman also helps out in a couple of numbers.) While the show is billed as “a concert presentation,” and a few numbers are delivered standing at music stands, Billy DeMetsenaere’s direction keeps all the performers pretty busy. All of the cast members get several chances to shine as soloists. Clair is dandy as the manic young man in the “What Am I Doin’?” song mentioned above, and a bit later in the more reflective “One of the Good Guys.” Anderson does a simple, moving job on “If I Sing” (both Maltby and Shire’s tributes to their musician fathers), and Bellavia tells her “Life Story” engagingly and mines some heavy emotion in “Patterns,” similar to Sondheim’s “Losing My Mind” and equally as lacerating. Laura Marron has a natural “show voice” and is the most outgoing of the group; she has the show’s comic highlight, “Miss Byrd,” a sexy number about a receptionist who enjoys certain on-the-job perks, in which Marron works most of the stage without once leaving her swivel chair. Marron and Bellavia’s voices combine to make some gorgeous music in “It’s Never That Easy” and “I’ve Been Here Before” — a medley that is like a three-minute pop opera. (I wish more pop operas were three minutes long.) Maltby and Shire’s songs are the kind of material musical-theater actors live to take on, and everybody in ETC’s “Closer Than Ever” seems to be having a great time doing so. I wish more groups did this show; you will be glad that ETC is giving it a try, and probably go home afterwards and order the album.

17 Riverside Street
When Frederick Law Olmsted designed his two parks alongside the Genesee River (Seneca and Maplewood Park) in 1888, this part of Rochester was undergoing rapid and elegant development. The neighborhood on the west side of the river, Maplewood, witnessed the construction of some of Rochester’s finest homes in the thirty years between 1890 and 1920. One of these welldesigned houses is 17 Riverside Street, built in 1912. A sophisticated bungalow, this charming four bedroom home is just a stone’s throw from Olmsted’s park. Tucked away on a quiet block just off of Lake Avenue, this home immediately grabs your attention with its large front porch and hanging swing. Its white accents and grey siding give the house a quaint curb appeal. Upon entering, you will find a charming anteroom with built-in storage and a beautiful window seat—a great spot for relaxing with a book or taking off your muddy shoes. Immediately to the right is a spacious living room, complete with a fully functional fireplace and hardwood floors, which continue throughout the home. Large diamond-paned windows let in lots of natural light. This room leads directly into the spacious dining room, which is equally well-lit by another enormous window seat. Around the corner is a good-sized kitchen with ample storage. Directly off of the kitchen is the first of two full bathrooms. The kitchen also leads out to a small back porch, patio, and an attractive, fully-fenced backyard.
A simple but handsome oak staircase leads to the second floor and two small bedrooms facing the front of the house. Both have closets, and both lead out to what is perhaps the most interesting feature of the home—the sleeping porch. This enclosed porch captures a great deal of natural light, and is ideally suited for an afternoon nap. There are two other bedrooms on this floor, along with a second full bathroom. This bathroom houses a claw-foot tub, and the original porcelain furniture. The attic can be used for storage but also contains a room with a large window and hardwood floors. Previously used as a library, it has bookshelves already in place. Other features worthy of note include a private driveway, garage, and a large basement. Visitors will find 17 Riverside St. to be a beautiful home with lots of historic character. Its 2,070 square feet are laid out in a compact, efficient, and functional layout. Nestled within a closeknit community, future owners will have access to the always active Maplewood Neighborhood Association. The price of the home was recently reduced, and now stands at $105,900. It is listed with Catherine Bianchi of Nothnagle Realtors. For more information, please call 585-339-3947. by Matthew Maloney Matt is a senior at Nazareth College and a Landmark Society intern.

The Captain fights again “Captain America: The Winter Soldier”
suggested that Superman was originally a Jewish culture hero created to defend his people against the Nazi menace. (PG-13), DIRECTED BY ANTHONY RUSSO As his first movie demonstrated, the AND JOE RUSSO protagonist of “Captain America: The Winter NOW PLAYING Soldier” derives from the same background as his fellow superheroes. In the second of what seems likely to become yet another cinema [ REVIEW ] BY GEORGE GRELLA franchise, the Captain faces somewhat different enemies in a more complicated world. Originally As all students of the form know, World War transformed by a special serum (echt comic book II contributed enormously to the success of the nonsense) from an undersized pencil-necked comic books that flourished in the America of geek to a magnificent physical specimen with the past. Characters like Blackhawk and his superior powers, Steve Rogers (Chris Evans), international squadron, the Boy Commandos, and Wonder Woman often faced various threats now “defrosted,” as a character puts it, works for the security organization known as S.H.I.E.LD., from the Axis Powers; some critics have even under the command of Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and Secretary Alexander Pierce (Robert Redford). The Captain’s opening mission in the movie involves the freeing of hostages from a hijacked ship, which he accomplishes in a nicely choreographed ballet of violence with the assistance of Natasha Chris Evans and Scarlett Johansson in “Captain America: The Winter Soldier.” Romanoff (Scarlett PHOTO COURTESY MARVEL STUDIOS
Johansson), known as the Black Widow, and a crew of fellow agents. Establishing his superhero credentials, he dives from an airplane without the assistance of a parachute, an act he repeats with variations throughout the picture. After the rescue of the ship and its crew Rogers returns to Washington to find that his organization no longer deals with the clear issues of good guys versus bad guys, but now commits itself to some confused notion of peacekeeping. From its headquarters in a strange building called a triskelion, S.H.I.E.L.D. intends to launch a trio of giant hovering aircraft carriers that will obliterate trouble spots around the world in a science-fiction version of the preemptive warfare popularized by the Bush administration, and a practice that troubles the Captain. Alexander Pierce’s plan inspires the pivotal theme of the movie, a continuous examination of the nature of trust, something of a throwback to the cultural paranoia of so many science-fiction films of the 1950s. Nick Fury warns Captain America to trust nobody, an admonition that governs most of the action, as loyal S.H.I.E.L.D. agents reveal themselves as villains, and Rogers and his few friends become something like traitors. Steve desperately attempts to discover the truth, identify the good guys, and prevent the killing of some 20 million people. Despite its vaguely intriguing central point, “Captain America” mostly continues the current dreary cinematic practice of piling on explosions, chases, stuntwork, gunfights, and an impossibly

high level of hand-to-hand combat. Steve Rogers and his pal Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie), a.k.a. the Falcon, swoop all over the place, performing impossible feats of strength and agility, and beating the hell out of their adversaries. Steve throws that famous shield like a lethal Frisbee and in the process destroys automobiles, buildings, airplanes, and just about everything else — including the movie itself. Like just about all the other superhero blockbusters and comic book flicks, “Captain America” indicates the sorry state of filmmaking in America and the taste of audiences all over the globe. It provides just the sort of spectacular optical, chemical, and digital effects that movie producers, viewers, and, alas, many reviewers mistake for cinema. Despite the presence of big names like Samuel L. Jackson and Robert Redford, both of whom acquit themselves adequately, and a sultry (and redheaded) Scarlett Johansson, the directors obviously care very little about acting, which would interfere with the violence and fireworks anyway; the performers can pick up their huge paychecks and forget about all that stuff about technique and movement and internal subtexts and such that they learned in classes: nobody in the audience cares. The movie grows out of a comic book, after all, a source originally aimed at mostly male 15-yearolds, or in other words, its target audience; sadly, however, a sizeable portion of that audience these days is certainly older than that. Think about what that means for the future of the movies.
Always a highlight of my annual film-going calendar, The Rochester International Film Festival — better known as “Movies On a Shoestring” — returns to its home at the Dryden Theatre this week. Boasting the auspicious title of “The world’s oldest, continuously held short film festival,” the RIFF presents four programs of shorts over the course of three days starting Thursday, April 10. The films are submitted from across the globe and span a variety of genres, making this festival nirvana for any cinephile. Each program feels like an expertly curated sampler platter of cinematic delights, ensuring that there’s bound to be a film to suit whatever mood you happen to be in. Plus, with seven films in each program, audiences get more bang for their buck (even more so when you consider that admission to RIFF is completely free). What follows are a few highlights of this year’s film lineup. For more information on the festival and the complete schedule, check rochesterfilmfest.org.
Thursday, April 10 (8 p.m.)
The festival starts with a bang in Andrew Fairbank’s domestic thriller “9-1-1,” in which an emergency phone operator finds that the method of dispassionate response she preaches is a bit more difficult to uphold when you recognize the voice on the other end of the line. “Distance” is an emotional as well as an physical barrier to a father and his daughter in Aimee Long’s exquisitely acted sci-fi drama, which takes place in a future where pollution has forced the government to ration the amount of miles its citizens are allowed to travel. The highest compliment I can pay the sole documentary in this year’s lineup, “Cinema Time Capsule” — about the 75th anniversary of the Avon Cinema in Providence, R.I. — is that I wish it went on longer than its all-too-brief 6-minute running time. A mother and her young son find that their strained relationship isn’t beyond salvaging in the locally made film, “Tin Cans.” Impressively, as an entry in the Rochester Movie Makers annual MindTo-Movie Challenge, the entire film was produced in only 72 hours.
Friday, April 11 (8 p.m.)
Though no physical pyrotechnics are deployed, an exasperated office worker reaches the end of his rope in “Explosive,” a workplace drama from directors Ivan M. Valencia and José Ramón Soriano. A muddled tone hinders the otherwise engaging dark comedy “Tag,” in which a young boy watches as his father engages in a rather dangerous game. A grizzled Russian farmer and his wife are tasked with safeguarding a crate of paintings while awaiting their son’s return from war in the richly evocative “Way In Rye.”
The Rochester Film Fest will screen “Way in Rye” on Friday, April 11. PHOTO PROVIDED
The ingenious production design behind the titular establishment is
the true star of “Hotel,” a fantastically entertaining Twilight Zone-esque thriller from Spanish director José Luis Alemán.
Saturday, April 12 (4 p.m.)
In Clinton Cornwell’s sensitive drama, “A New Leaf,” a 20-something woman vies for a supervisor position at the supermarket where she works, ignoring the larger question of whether her life has gone off course. Joanna Davidovich pays homage to Tex Avery in “Monkey Rag,” a lively music video set to the music of the Asylum Street Spankers. On his way to meet a stranger, a man impulsively picks up an alluring hitchhiker in “The Choice,” a beautifully photographed road movie from director Evan Kaufmann. A group of septuagenarians resort to desperate measures in order to avoid being evicted from their retirement home in the comedic “Bingo Night.”
Saturday, April 12 (8 p.m.)
Trygve Nielsen uses often-abstract animation to weave a myth-like tale of a traveling cowpoke and his magical hat in “The Cowboy - In Color.”
Exploiting every parent’s worst nightmare, the comedy “Shenanigans” explores the consequences of a boy’s mother and father inadvertently getting wrapped up in his teenage drama. A determined young Indian girl longs to escape a life of exploitation in a clothing factory by learning to read and write in “Butterfly Dreams.” A cast of familiar faces, including Ron Livingston, Lizzy Caplan, and Jordan Peele, turn up in Michael J. Weithorn and Rob Benedict’s hilarious “The Sidekick” — a film about what happens when a lifelong superhero sidekick suddenly finds himself unemployed.

the vanguard of that transformation. But people have to let go of their attachment to what downtown used to be, she says, because that’s never coming back. There are a lot of different pieces in motion downtown, she says. The nearly 200 apartment units in Sibley and about 180 in Midtown tower, coupled with the units in the Temple building, University Place, the Michaels-Stern lofts, and other housing developments will mean serious density downtown, Zimmer-Myer says. “That’s a lot of people within a few blocks,” she says. “That creates a kind of momentum.” Population density attracts retail, she says, and ground-level retail is planned for both Sibley and the Midtown tower. First the first time in 30 years, Zimmer-Myer says, a critical mass of retail in the area of Sibley-Midtown looks possible.
Add to that a downtown worker population of nearly 50,000, she says, and you’ve got the pieces for an exciting transformation. “When you combine all those things, now you’re talking some serious density,” ZimmerMyer says. “It feeds on itself and builds. And I think that’s the era we’re now in.” “In five years, even three years, if you stand in the middle of the Main and Clinton intersection, you will not recognize where you are,” she says. “Already now you can walk around during the day and see people in their sweats walking their dog. And you’re going, ‘Whoa, where’d these people come from?’ They live here.” Eddy, from WinnDevelopment, says he knows that there’s a lot more riding on the successful redevelopment of the Sibley building than saving an old building. “You love taking on a project like this, which is going to be so impactful to the community,” he says. “You’re really changing a whole city, and you get excited about it.”
