URBAN JOURNAL | BY MARY ANNA TOWLER

Clinton for president? OK, the presidential election is still almost 19 months away, and it’s early to be worried. But Hillary Clinton wasn’t my choice for president in 2008, and – although I may change my mind – I’m not enthusiastic about her now. Problem is, of course, there’s nobody else. Former Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley, former Virginia Senator Jim Webb former Rhode Island Senator and former Governor Lincoln Chafee, and Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders are said to be thinking about running, but they’re really long shots. Barring a massive Clinton screw-up during the campaign, lesser-name candidates will likely drop out after a few primaries, and Clinton will coast to the nomination. For many of us, it won’t be hard to choose between Clinton and any of the Republicans. Some, like Ted Cruz, would be disasters as president, but they’ll be disasters as candidates, too, so there’s little need to worry. Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio are a different matter. Either, I think, would give Clinton a tough race. And any of the Republican candidates would set the country on a course that will be hard to turn back from. There’s not a moderate among them. Climate change, gun control, health care, education, abortion rights, gay rights, labor rights, Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, income inequality, campaign finance, foreign policy, Supreme Court nominations, our response to terrorism: what’s at stake in the 2016 election is huge. So why not Clinton? Certainly she has many strengths. I don’t think liberals will have to worry about her on most domestic issues. And she could be an eloquent advocate on income inequality, shaming any Republican she runs against. But she’s much more of a hawk than I like. I worry that she’ll pull back from some of the critically important progress Obama has made in foreign policy. And given her hawkish nature, Republicans’ harsh militarism could push her farther to the right. I also worry that she can’t get elected. Maybe that’s not a concern. Presumably she’ll have lots of money. She has plenty of name recognition and already has a big base of supporters, particularly among AfricanAmericans and women. In the New Yorker earlier this month, Jason Zengerle discussed the factors that traditionally influence election outcomes, and he noted two that are in Clinton’s favor: the economy is improving, and Obama’s approval ratings, while not great, are decent.

In an election with so much at stake, is she really the best the Democrats have? And can she get elected?

But another factor is whether voters think it’s time for a change. Clinton is not only in the same party as Obama, but she served in his administration. In addition to average voters who hope that “change” equals “better,” there are the passionate Obama haters. And they’ll have no problem redirecting their ire and turning it onto Clinton. Just as important, though, may be a problem that hurt Clinton in 2008: She just doesn’t seem “natural.” She’s an introvert, Zengerle writes, but that trait comes off as being haughty and entitled. And I think she’s often defensive in a way that creates the suspicion that she’s hiding something. Republicans have already shown that they’ll try to fan that fire. Zengerle quotes GOP consultant Rick Wilson as calling Clinton “a schemer and a planner and a plodder.” “You need people like that in politics,” Wilson said, “but most of the time they end up as campaign strategists, not candidates.” And then Zengerle quotes Pat Buchanan: “She reminds me of Nixon.” And in some of her news conferences, actually… yes. She does. Clinton’s personality, then, may help a Republican pull not only his party’s base but also a lot of independents and conservative Democrats. Over the next 18-plus months, Clinton will have to lay out a vision that turns out her base and inspires the majority of other voters. If Republicans are crazy enough to nominate someone like Ted Cruz, Democrats and many independents and moderate Republicans will probably race to the polls out of sheer fear. But if it’s Jeb Bush or Marco Rubio? It’s early days. But Clinton’s run has me more worried than excited.

Dems gain a seat

Republican Legislator Dorothy Styk is becoming a Democrat, giving the party control of 11 of the Legislature’s 29 seats. Styk said that she’s frustrated with the GOP caucus because it prioritized politics over meaningful debate. Republicans shot back, saying that Styk switched sides because she’s lost the support of the Perinton Republican Committee, which is set to back attorney Tanya Conley.

It will be Frankel’s second stab at the job. She ran a lackluster campaign against Republican incumbent Maggie Brooks in 2011, losing by 14 percentage points. But term limits prevent the popular Brooks from running again, setting up a potentially more competitive race. Democrats unhappy with Frankel’s candidacy can challenge her in a primary election. Otherwise, Frankel will face Republican Cheryl Dinolfo, the Monroe County clerk, in November. “We need a county executive who will be ready to stand up and fight for its citizens, all of its citizens,” Frankel said in a press release. “Four years ago when Democrats in the Monroe County Legislature proposed the Office of Public Integrity, I stood with legislators and fought for its passage because it was good policy. I have fought for reforms to eliminate the

secrecy and corruption of the local development corporations for years. “When the Brooks administration cut child care subsidies, I stood with providers and demanded their restoration, because we know that preschool is one of the best ways to give children a head start and success in school,” Frankel said. She said that she will not increase taxes; Brooks has faced criticism during her tenure for refusing to raise the property tax rate. Her critics say that she’s used added fees and chargebacks as tax increases in disguise. The individual committees need to endorse in the county executive and district attorney races by May 8 in order for those votes to be valid at the county party’s May 21 convention. Democrats have not yet announced a DA candidate. Former DA Mike Green, a Democrat, is reportedly considering a run.

Lyrical fit Last week’s announcement that the First Church of Christ, Scientist building at 440 East Avenue is now the Lyric Theatre, a new performing arts venue, came at the end of two years of discussions that began with a serendipitous meeting, says Sue Cotroneo, Rochester Lyric Opera’s managing director. A few years ago, Cotroneo says, she and her husband hosted a fundraising dinner for the Rochester Area Foundation when she met Deb Willsea, a member of The First Church. The two struck up a pleasant conversation about the RLO. About a year and a half later, Willsea called Cotroneo out of the blue to invite her to lunch — right around the time that the RLO was looking for a permanent home. “Deb says, ‘Please stop what you’re doing and come see my church,’” Cotroneo says. “‘My building isn’t for sale, but I know eventually we need to move out and I’ve been dreaming and praying the church’s next life will be a theater.’” After some negotiations, the RLO purchased the 100-year-old building for $1.2 million. The Lyric Theatre will be a 28,000-square-foot venue featuring two performance areas: a 900-seat main performance hall and a cabaret-style venue with seating for 150 or reception space for 300.

Townhouses, condos coming to East End A series of city-owned vacant lots on Charlotte Street will be developed in two phases for apartments and townhomes. Charlotte Square in Rochester’s East End will also include a fitness room, bike storage, pocket park, and a soundproof practice room for students of the nearby Eastman School of Music. Mayor Lovely Warren, at a press conference last week, called Charlotte Square a key East End project. There will be 72 upscale apartments available at both market rate and affordable prices, a press release says, and 14 forsale townhomes. Rents will likely range from $1,000 to $1,800 a month for a two-bedroom unit, said Nelson Leenhouts, CEO of Home Leasing, the project’s developer. The apartment tenants should be able to move in by summer 2016, Warren said, and the entire project completed sometime in 2017. Residents of the new development will be within walking distance of Hart’s Local Grocers, the Little Theatres, and other East End amenities. Charlotte Square will also complement the redevelopment of the Inner Loop, she said. The project will create 50 construction jobs, Warren said, and Charlotte Square will have 80 onsite parking spaces.

TECHNOLOGY | BY JEREMY MOULE

Fiber growth speeds up If any Ontario County community seemed poised to get a high-tech fiber optic Internet system, it would have to be Victor; it’s a fairly wealthy Rochester suburb that’s seen plenty of development. But in this case, assumptions don’t match reality. The tiny Village of Naples in the county’s rural southwest tip is actually the first to get a fiber setup. Very soon, Empire Access will start running extremely fast fiber optic connections to homes and businesses in the community. From there, it plans to extend service outside of the village, to the Town of Naples. (The company has already hooked up Hunt Hollow Ski Club in the town.) Empire Access is providing far more than Internet connections, town and village officials say. It’s bringing a powerful information and technology system to the community, which will act as an economic development tool and boost quality of life. It’ll help attract high-tech businesses, they say, make it easier for residents to work or run businesses from home, and attract residents who value easy access to ultrafast Internet. “We’re talking about bandwidth that’s generally unavailable unless you’re in a densely populated city,” Naples Mayor Brian Schenk says. Just a year ago, residential fiber Internet connections were relatively scarce in the Rochester and Finger Lakes area. A few neighborhoods in Pittsford, Brighton, and Rochester had them, as did some scattered areas in the Southern Tier. But providers are extending fiber networks into more neighborhoods and communities at a quickening pace. In Monroe County, Greenlight Networks has connected fiber lines to residences in parts of Rochester, Brighton, Pittsford, East Rochester, Irondequoit, and Henrietta. It’s also hinted that neighborhoods in Greece and Webster could be expansion candidates. Prattsburgh-based Empire Access, which grew out of a 100-year-old rural telephone company, recently lit up fiber networks in the cities of Batavia and Hornell, and is building a system in Big Flats near Corning and Elmira. In total, it serves 16 markets, also including the villages of Bath and Watkins Glen. “We feel it’s bringing a state-of-the-art technology with the fiber to the residents and bringing competition into those markets,” says Bob VanDelinder, the company’s director of marketing. But there’s an interesting backstory to the Naples system. A decade ago, Ontario County officials formed Axcess Ontario, a nonprofit quasi-governmental corporation, to build a fiber optic network backbone to loop around the county. Since then, it’s installed approximately 200 miles of fiber optic cable, and any company or institution can lease space on that system. 6 CITY

Empire Access is tapping into that backbone to bring fiber service to Naples, a move that’s part strategy, part serendipity. The community is adjacent to one of Empire Access’ traditional service areas, and key Axcess Ontario network infrastructure is located at Naples Village Hall. The arrangement could serve as a model for extending superfast fiber Internet into other rural communities. Other counties in the Finger Lakes region and the Southern Tier have built or are building a fiber backbone, though the proposition isn’t cheap: the Axcess Ontario network cost $5.5 million, according to a 2010 press release.

The Axcess Ontario network was built

with economic development in mind. For companies that need to transit large amounts of data, the fiber network is a major asset, says John Sheppard, chair of the organization’s board. Sheppard uses the Thompson Health system, which includes a hospital in Canandaigua and some satellite offices, as an example. Thompson is hooked into the fiber network and uses it for all kinds of communications, from its billing system to the transmission of radiological images. But officials always envisioned that private companies would use the loop to provide residential services. And Axcess Ontario has plenty of capacity for new residential, commercial, industrial, and institutional users, Sheppard says. The state is making new broadband funding available, and Sheppard says he hopes that the resource encourages providers to run more fiber connections to Ontario County homes and businesses. As part of the 2015-16 state budget, New York lawmakers set aside $500 million toward a broadband initiative: the New NY Broadband Program. The money will help build and improve broadband infrastructure statewide, though the criteria for projects aren’t entirely clear. The funding is meant to encourage private investment in broadband networks, and any company that receives state money will have to match it dollar for dollar, at minimum.

The state says that in most cases, it’ll require networks to have speeds of at least 100 mbps (megabits per second) — double the fastest Internet speed that a Rochesterarea Time Warner Cable customer can get. The state has also said that it’ll prioritize projects that will result in the highest speeds at the lowest cost. Some other nearby rural counties could also be in a good position to attract broadband projects spurred by state funding. Chemung, Schuyler, and Steuben counties have an open-access fiber backbone running through them, called the Southern Tier Network. Greenlight Networks managing partner Mark Murphy also sees opportunity in the funding. It could help Greenlight accelerate its builds in Monroe County, he says, but the company also plans to expand into underserved markets outside of Rochester and its suburbs. “Theoretically it would allow us to go twice as fast,” Murphy says. Greenlight recently announced that it’s

making fiber-to-home service available in nine new neighborhoods in the city and suburbs. Installations start first in the neighborhoods with the most customers signed up. It’s a good time for Greenlight to accelerate its expansion, Murphy says. In addition to the funding, he says, state officials promised to streamline regulatory and permitting processes.

But the main reason is growing consumer demand, Murphy says. People want reliable Internet connections that are faster than what they get from the major broadband providers, he says. And growing use of streaming media services is driving much of that interest, he says. Streaming media, especially digital video, is an area that’s only going to grow. Sony, Apple, Google, and others have released new set-top boxes that can access video, audio, and games. The subscription TV model is starting to shift, too: HBO has launched a standalone streaming channel, for example. As more users stream more content, they’ll need better connections and a faster, higher-capacity system behind them. “We really think that we’re in the right place at the right time,” Murphy says.

VICTOrY OVER CLIMATE CHANGE Former NASA scientist James Hansen has warned about global warming for decades.

WE STILL AREN’T LISTENING. [ ENVIRONMENT ] BY JEREMY MOULE

J

ames Hansen sat in front of members of the US Senate and told them that the Earth is warming and that human-generated greenhouse gas emissions are to blame. Back in 1988. Hansen was director of NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies at the time and had been studying global warming and the greenhouse effect since the 1970’s. Scientists had already identified and warned of the link between global warming and carbon dioxide emissions from burning fossil fuels. But Hansen delivered one of the first blunt, high-profile declarations. Sadly, you could slap today’s date on Hansen’s 1988 testimony and it’d still be relevant. World leaders haven’t done nearly enough to limit carbon emissions, which continue to grow yearly; the planet is warmer now than it was in 1988; and extreme weather occurs more often (Hansen warned about this, too). “It’s a frustrating problem because you can see that it’s solvable, but it’s not being solved,” he says. For close to 30 years, Hansen has sounded the alarm on climate change — retiring from NASA in 2013 to devote more time and effort to climate activism. (Before he left he’d emerged as a prominent, outspoken opponent of the Keystone XL pipeline). Hansen is now director of climate science, awareness, and solutions at

Columbia University’s Earth Institute. And he’s this year’s keynote speaker for the Rochester Sierra Club’s Earth Day forum, which is at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, April 21. In recent years, Hansen has used his profile and influence to advocate against fossil fuels development and for policies and efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. He pushes hardest for a carbon fee on fossil fuels, which would rise gradually over time. The fee would make fossil fuels more expensive which, in turn, would make other technologies more competitive, he says. And he says that he wants the fee returned as an equal dividend to all legal US residents, which would prevent the fee from becoming a tax or encouraging bigger government. The dividend would help blunt the effect of higher fuel prices on less wealthy Americans, Hansen says, and would make other technologies more effective. But as US and world leaders prepare to negotiate a new global climate treaty in June, they’re looking, instead, at carbon caps, which Hansen opposes. The carboncap approach was the basis of the 1997 Kyoto Protocol, but emissions continued to climb even after most of the world’s largest nations signed on. The carbon-cap approach simply doesn’t offer countries any incentive to reduce their emissions, he says. “As long as fossil fuels are the cheapest energy, then we’re going to keep burning them,” Hansen says. “And the countries that want to raise their standard of living are going to use whatever energy is the cheapest.” Hansen frequently works alongside environmentalists, although they sometimes

IT’S A FRUSTRATING PROBLEM BECAUSE YOU CAN SEE THAT IT’S SOLVABLE, BUT IT’S NOT BEING SOLVED. - James Hansen disagree on the actions necessary to reduce carbon emissions. Nuclear power is an important example. Hansen thinks it’s a necessary low-carbon power source, while many environmentalists flat-out oppose it because of issues with waste storage and concerns about the safety of the reactors. Peter Debes, chair of the Rochester Sierra Club, doesn’t downplay the disagreement, but says that their areas of agreement matter far more. Hansen and environmentalists agree that climate change is a significant cha llenge, that addressing it will take concerted action by citizens, and that people will find ways to cut carbon emissions if they’re challenged to do so, Debes says.

“What we’re trying to do here is build that resolve,” he says. In a recent interview, Hansen talked about the ongoing clash between climate science and politics, the urgency of addressing climate change, and his ideas for cutting carbon emissions. An edited version of that conversation follows. CITY: What do you make of the global response to early warnings about climate change?

Hansen: There’s actually been very little response in terms of actions that would make a difference. The emissions of carbon dioxide from fossil fuels have not slowed. There’s a lot of discussion and even actions, but the actions are very ineffectual. They’re symbolized by the Kyoto Protocol, which unfortunately adopted a cap-andtrade with offsets approach, which resulted in global emissions accelerating from an increase of, like, 1.5 percent per year in the few decades leading up to that to 3 percent a year since then. The reason is very simple: nothing was done to affect the price of fossil fuels. If you just add the costs of air and water pollution from fossil fuels to the price of the fuels, that alone would make clean


energies competitive. But in addition, there’s this climate cost that’s beginning to be significant. What we can show is it’s going to get much larger in the relatively near future. Those costs should really be included in the cost of the fossil fuels. But how do you get this to actually happen? You can see how difficult it is in the US both because the public is misinformed — every day they hear on the television that the United States is becoming the world’s leading oil producer and that’s good, that’ll create more jobs — and our Congress is well-oiled and coal-fired. So getting sensible actions is difficult politically. Often, environmentalists and others concerned about climate change say that it’s difficult to get the public to take the issue seriously. Why?

Well, we’ve got two political parties, and it’s hard for me to decide which one is worse on this problem. The liberals pretend that they’re addressing the problem, but they do this by advocating solar panels and windmills, which are nice forms of energy in the sense that they’re relatively carbon-free. But solar panels provide less than 1 percent of our energy, and if that’s all that we do is advocate sun and the wind, then what that means is we’re stuck with fossil fuels and we’re stuck, in particular, with fracking to get gas. You’ve got to have complementary power to go with intermittent energies like the sun and the wind, and that complementary power is going to be gas. We have to phase out fossil fuels, and you can’t do that by just advocating windmills and solar panels. You’ve got to actually put a price on carbon. How do you educate the public on the need for a carbon price?

I’m trying to talk to conservatives, because if we can’t persuade conservatives, it’s going to be very hard to get action in the United States. I am getting some positive response from people even like Grover Norquist, who is the no-tax pledgeenforcer in Washington.

Conservatives in the long run have actually been supporters of the environment, but they’re strongly against regulations and new taxes. That’s why they deny the reality of climate change. But as they realize that this is not a hoax, then they also understand that if they pretend that it’s a hoax, the public is going to turn against them. Their worst nightmare is that the liberals will get control and there will be more regulations and more taxes. So they need to get ahead of the game by saying OK, we’ll deal with this in a revenue-neutral way by putting a fee on carbon but not using that to make the government bigger. Why do you say that nuclear power shouldn’t be discounted as part of the solution to climate change?

If you look at China or India, who are now the largest — and becoming even larger — sources of the emissions that are causing climate change, there’s no way that they can replace coal as rapidly as is needed without the help of nuclear power. The anti-nuclear movement is a quasireligion, which when you look at it carefully, it’s pretty irrational. For example, the products of fossil fuel burning, if you look at the aerosols that are produced under a microscope, they’re really ugly organic carbon and black soot. Compare that with the particles that are emitted in nuclear radiation, and if you compare the biological effects of those, it’s much more devastating what you get from this fossil fuel pollution: more than 10,000 per day are dying from those particles. Somehow the nuclear radiation frightens people, but the problems from the fossil fuel emissions, they’re willing to accept. As I say, it’s irrational. The thing is that the current nuclear reactors are outdated technology. You can make much better nuclear technology, which is safe in the sense that, first of all, you can’t have a meltdown in any case, and if you had an accident, say that you lose power, it can cool itself — you don’t need to have external power to cool it. continues on page 30

The truth about Whole Foods

The “Whole Foods fight” article in the April 1 issue refers to a 90,000-squarefoot organic market, said to be Whole Foods. People can easily assume incorrectly that this company runs stores which are 100-percent organic. Whole Foods makes it crystal clear on its website, however, that this is not possible. The company does state that all its products are natural, with no artificial ingredients. Consumers would always do well to recognize that “natural” and “organic” are not synonymous. There is no retail food market in Rochester which is 100 percent organic. MARTIN FASS

It would actually be beneficial for Whole Foods to open on Monroe Avenue. Vibrant cities need upscale retail choices, especially if we hope to attract young professionals to Rochester. Monroe Avenue is a major commercial thoroughfare and is an

entirely appropriate venue for a small shopping center. As to Whole Foods in particular, it is, along with Wegmans, acknowledged in the book Firms of Endearment, which celebrates companies imbued with corporate social responsibility. It is time for Rochester to bring back many of its native youth who are living like sardines in big cities, and a Whole Foods will certainly help. I lived in Brighton for 36 years and would have loved having a Whole Foods in my back yard, as well as having Whole Foods help with the Town of Brighton tax burden. DALE KLEIN

The real issue that would affect most commuters and residents is the added congestion, especially at the intersection of Westfall, Allens Creek, and Monroe Ave. The Department of Transportation needs to study that intersection because it is already one of the most dangerous and congested in the area. Adding to the problem would be the proposed use of the current service road off Allens Creek for entering-exiting the project. Adding a traffic light or two will not solve the congestion or safety issues.

evolution, medicinevaccines, and genetic research. People continue to base personal decisions on fear and denial. Instead of actively preventing disasters, they continue to react with stopgap measures and never use the knowledge available. Instead of progressing, moving back to the Dark Ages is the new comfort zone. There is such a loathing for education, critical thinking, and diverse thought — evident in the laws created and upheld by policymakers. Individual and corporate rights, no matter how oppressive or discriminatory, supersede the rights of society in general. My ethics are internal and I don’t want your beliefs, superstitions, or denials to prohibit the progress of future generations. The world isn’t flat. The earth isn’t the center of the universe. Dinosaurs did not exist with humans. It’s absurd that we are forced to tolerate and respect falsehoods and opinions while scientific facts can be discarded or ignored by even our policymakers. And it’s those very people creating the education system today. America is becoming the Land of the Ignorant. BARBIV

URBAN ACTION This week’s calls to action include the following events and activities. (All are free and open to the public, unless otherwise noted.)

Lessons from St. Paul

The Rochester Regional Community Design Center will present “New Currents in a River City,” a talk by Christopher Coleman, mayor of St. Paul, and Tim Griffin, director of urban design for St. Paul Riverfront Corporation, on Tuesday, April 21. The speakers will talk about redevelopment, investing in infrastructure, and connecting St. Paul’s downtown to its Mississippi riverfront. The event will be held at the Inn on Broadway, 26 Broadway Street, from 11:45 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Tickets: $45; www.cdcrochester.org or 271-0520.

A new campaign for poor people

Several regional education, activist, and health care organizations will hold a meeting at 6 p.m. on Thursday, April 16, to mobilize “A New Poor

People’s Campaign.” Willie Baptist, a longtime anti-poverty activist who organized the National Union of the Homeless, and Nikita Price, also an anti-homelessness activist, will lead the discussion. The event will be held at the College of Brockport’s Metro Center Campus, 55 St. Paul Street.

Discussing climate change

The Sierra Club Rochester Regional Group will present “Climate, Energy, and Intergenerational Justice,” featuring a talk by James Hansen at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, April 21. Hansen, widely considered one of the country’s experts on climate change, was described by Time as one of the world’s most influential people. The meeting will be held at Monroe Community College, 1000 East Henrietta Road, building 4.

Talking about the LGBT movement

The Flying Squirrel Community Space will host “Against Equality: Queer Revolution,

Not Mere Inclusion,” at 7 p.m. on Friday April 17. Author and activist Ryan Conrad will discuss how the largest and most influential LGBT organizations have wed themselves to the interests of big business at the expense of the more marginalized members of the LGBT community. The event will be held at 285 Clarissa Street.

Discussion on gun safety The Lifetree Café will present “Inside the Gun Debate: To Hunt? To Defend? To Assault?” at 7 p.m. on Monday, April 20. The video features filmed interviews with Tom Mauser, whose son died at Columbine High School, and Michael Lang, a concealed weapon firearms instructor. The program, which is being offered at Lifetree Café locations across the country, is designed to encourage discussion about the often-heated issue of gun safety. The event will be held at 1301 Vintage Lane, Greece. Information: 723-4673.


Dining Rabbit’s Veggies Pannini ($8) was less a burger than a loose formation of rice, black beans, and red peppers. The flavors were fine, but I think it could go further if it were formulated more as a grilled cheese with the cheese used as kind of a binder.

At the heart of The Mad Hatter Tea Room & Cafe is its selection of teas, like the (left) freshly brewed loose leaf tea "Alice's Choice." The restaurant also serves up home-cooked meals, such as (right) the open-faced meatloaf sandwich, which has a rice-based filler and is studded with fresh mozzarella and beef, with caramelized onion gravy with parsley on top.

Eats with the Hatter The Mad Hatter Tea Room & Cafe 30 NORTH AVENUE, WEBSTER TUESDAY THROUGH FRIDAY, 8 A.M. TO 3 P.M.; SATURDAY AND SUNDAY 9 A.M. TO 3 P.M. 545-4985;FACEBOOK.COM/THEMADHATTERTEAROOMANDCAFE [ REVIEW ] BY CHRIS LINDSTROM

Quaint is probably the first word that comes to mind when trying to describe The Mad Hatter Tea Room. A relatively small house converted into a restaurant, there is plenty of charm, with old hardwood floors and friendly service that does well even in the cramped quarters. And that doesn’t just mean the dining area; the kitchen at The Mad Hatter is among the smallest I’ve seen in a functioning restaurant. Sure, we had a food arrival delay on an unexpectedly busy day, but what impressed me was how much of the food was made in house. The menu covers the well-trodden ground of a standard breakfast and

lunch establishment with most of the dishes taken to a level above the typical diner. One of these was the open faced meatloaf sandwich ($9.75) which was a strong comfort food lunch offering. The smothered meatloaf had a rice-based filler and was studded with fresh mozzarella. The flavorful beef and caramelized onion gravy with plenty of parsley on top really stood out, and the texture of the loaf itself was aided by a hard sear. It wasn’t mind blowing but the dish was executed well overall. The Duchess ($8) benedict, featuring a banger, is one of the seven versions of eggs benedict on the menu and another well executed dish. Hollandaise sauce is the most often messed up part of an eggs benedict and this one was damn close to being perfect. The sauce was nicely emulsified and savory with herbs (parsley I think) but could have used some lemon for brightness. The banger sausage, in this case an emulsified, lightly smoky link, was a positive substitution from the basic Canadian bacon in texture and flavor. In lieu of a large flat top the potatoes were

oven roasted to a nice crisp which was a substitution of necessity, but not one that was unwelcomed. The Challah French toast ($6) was under-soaked with the vanilla scented custard, but its eggy bread still offered a good, dense texture. I think Challah is one of the better breads for French toast, and thankfully Mad Hatter offered an option for local maple syrup ($1.75) from Cummings Maple Farm in Palmyra. The restaurant served the syrup in a small glass bottle and my wife and I were able to take the leftover deliciousness home, which was a nice touch. A couple of the menu items that we had during our lunch didn’t work as well, though. The Cobb Salad ($8) was nicely split into separate portions for us, but the overall package just didn’t pop with flavor. I did appreciate that the ranch dressing was made in house although it would have been better served being more assertively seasoned and the avocado pureed into it to make a smooth dressing. Other than the fantastically crispy bacon, everything was a bit washed out. The

Of course, tea is a huge part of what The Mad Hatter Tea Room is all about. It has quite a large selection of teas from Divinitea out of Schenectady. The tea is served loose leaf ($2.35) and is brewed at the table in a fine mesh infuser which leads to a very clean cup. Refills of hot water are available so you can brew a second or third pot to see how the flavors change in each extraction. Of the three different blends we tried, the hibiscus peppermint white was my favorite. The vibrantly colored hibiscus adds a fruity sour bite that works well with the peppermint forward blend and was refreshing. A black cherry blend had strong aromatics that didn’t overpower the taste, and the white vanilla chai was a light mix but all the warm flavors you’d expect were there. I was impressed by the balance in all three tea blends. An option that we didn’t get a chance to try was Mad Hatter’s High Tea offered Tuesday through Saturday at 3:30 p.m. It is reservation only and features tea service on fine china and food offerings that include scones, clotted cream, finger sandwiches, and some other small eats. This would be a nice relaxing time out for a group with a touch of that British charm. And that stands for the restaurant as whole as well. It offers catering and parties and specifically mention bridal or baby showers and birthday tea parties as options. I would definitely recommend it for events like that or if you just want a simple homemade meal out. On your way out, you should grab some of the restaurant’s house baked goods as well. My wife and I really enjoyed the thin toffee crunchy cookie and the palmier. Both were not as sweet as many desserts and had great textural crunch. A full baked goods case is there to satisfy your sweet tooth during your meal or take some on a road trip like we did.

SATURDAY, APRIL 18 MONTAGE MUSIC HALL, 50 CHESTNUT STREET 8:30 P.M. | $15 | TICKETFLY.COM; DEATHANGEL.US [ METAL ] If you follow the metal family tree back far

enough, you’ll probably come across Death Angel. The group formed in San Francisco in 1982 and became a vital part of the important Bay Area thrash metal scene — along with Exodus, Testament, and Metallica (after it moved to the area in ’83). Death Angel toured hard and heavy throughout the 80’s and released three studio albums, but come 1991, the band hit the brakes until 2001. Death Angel released its seventh studio album, “The Dream Calls for Blood,” in 2013 and is now working on new material for its follow-up. Corrosion of Conformity, Age of Shadows, Armageddon, and Iconoclast will also play. — BY JAKE CLAPP

What began as throat-gutting screams on earlier works, like “I’ll Be Damned” (2011) — which helped plant the band in a melodic hardcore category — has softened into a clear, heartfelt style, and the rock instrumentation has followed suit. There’s still a weight and depth, but it comes now more from raw emotion instead of full distortion. Loma Prieta and Gates also play. — BY TYLER PEARCE

— BY FRANK DE BLASE

The word “retro” is an unfair pigeon hole and strikes more as an accusation or back-handed compliment. It also limits the contributions of artists that fill the gap between today and yesteryear. Let’s just call it “classic,” whaddaya say? With its new Blind Pig pleasure platter, “Holding Court,” The Cash Box Kings are on the top of this classic upper echelon. The band blows hot and cool post-war, Chess-era blues that comes on now and vintage in the same breath. Joe Nosek’s thick and juicy harp wails hearty throughout as he shares vocals with the band’s 6-foot-3, 300 pounds of joy, Oscar Wilson. “Classic” actually applies to the overall instrumentation’s understatement and tone on “Holding Court” as it has that big, beautiful over-driven analog crispness that sounds as if it was hammered out in little smoky room with a couple of ribbon mics. CBK salutes its influences like Jimmy Rogers and John Lee Hooker while at the same time tackling subjects like downloading music (“Download Blues”) and urban gentrification (“Out to the Suburbs”). And regardless of the topic, there are plenty of tunes — 13 to be exact — for you to grab that special someone and cut yourself a slice of rug. One of the best blues recordings I’ve heard in a long, long time. — BY FRANK DE BLASE

Evan “New Folk” Self-released evansongs.bandcamp.com

I find that a lot of singer-songwriters commit to either plugged-in electric or unplugged acoustic, and rarely cross over, if ever. Rochester, by way of Wisconsin, musician Evan aptly does both at the same time. On his latest — and third — CD, “New Folk,” Evan comes out swinging with a gentle acoustic root that lilts below the soulful pleading of his rich voice. Bass and drums kick in and the acousticity remains. So does the undercurrent of wonderment and ache. If you like cats like Jack Johnson, you’re gonna love Evan. And if this is the new folk, I might start listening even more. — BY FRANK DE BLASE

Music think they actually think we’re the sweetest band of all time. But who doesn’t want to be. I’m happy to get made fun of. It’s stupendous. Guster is back from a European tour. Any stories you’d like to share?

The band Guster may very well be the sweetest band of all time — or at least Peter Griffin thinks so.

Europe was amazing. We were playing the smallest stages that we’ve probably ever played, including when we started 20 plus years ago. It was rewarding to be in new countries and new cities and playing in front of people that may or may not speak English. Every day we would wake up in another city and spread out and try to find Wi-Fi and find some weird place to eat. It was fantastic to have a tour that rewarding at this point in our career.

I met you guys at an after-show years ago. What has made Guster decide to maintain a close relationship with its fans?

Sweet dreams

The close thing is interesting — when we started we were sleeping on our fans’ floors. We had a grassroots protostreet team. We were sending out CDs to people who liked our band, and then saying, “Set up a show, bring your friends, and can we sleep on your couch?” It’s an extension of who we are and there’s not a lot of pretense in our performances and we’re not super pretentious guys. We realized early on that there is a lot of power in being who you are all the time.

Guster WITH KISHI BASHI SATURDAY, APRIL 18 WATER STREET MUSIC HALL, 204 NORTH WATER STREET 8 P.M. | $27.50-$32 WATERSTREETMUSIC.COM; GUSTER.COM EVERY TICKET PURCHASED INCLUDES A DIGITAL COPY OF GUSTER’S “EVERMOTION” [ INTERVIEW ] BY ROMAN DIVEZUR

When Peter Griffin announced on “Family Guy” that Guster is the sweetest band of all time, those weren’t empty words. Guster — Ryan Miller, vocals and guitar; Adam Gardner, vocals and guitar; Brian Rosenworcel, drums and percussion; and multi-instrumentalist Luke Reynolds — makes music that appeals to the masses. And the band itself is one of the most socially responsible acts in the industry; its affiliated nonprofit organization, Reverb, is rooted in environmental causes. The band broke out in 1999, with its third studio album, “Lost and Gone Forever.” The album was a hit, overflowing with inspired songwriting and innovative percussion that can only be described as a rock ‘n’ roll spectacle. Guster followed it up with “Keep It Together” (2003), “Ganging Up on the 14 CITY APRIL 15-21, 2015

Sun” (2006), and “Easy Wonderful” (2010). The albums were not only wellreceived, they also earned Guster a place on the musical landscape. Guster’s latest album, “Evermotion,” is a chip off the old block wrapped up in a dreamy texture. This time, Guster reached out to its fans — known as Gusterrhoids — and a resulting album pre-sale campaign offered ridiculously cool prizes. The band has grown a large organic audience since its start at Tufts University. Guster and Gusterrhoids have maintained a long, sweet relationship for more than 20 years. Guster is performing at Water Street Music Hall on Saturday, April 18, so City Newspaper spoke via phone with Ryan Miller a few hours before the band’s show in Portland, Oregon. An edited version of that interview follows. City: How awesome was it to be immortalized on Family Guy? Ryan Miller: It was mega-awesome. It was

a total surprise. I was in New Orleans, and at two in the morning, I started getting all these random texts. It was a funny joke and to be the punch line of a national show like that was super great.

Guster offered some fantasy camp experiences coinciding with the release of your new album, “Evermotion.” Did anyone purchase the skydiving experience or the Tesla?

No. No one purchased any of our stupid ideas. They were really funny, I thought. None of those got picked up. Which is fine. It was you and Adam that were going to go skydiving with a fan. Have you guys been skydiving before?

Adam’s been. I’ve never been. That was the other thing — we wanted to pick things that we wanted to do legitimately. If somebody bought it we wouldn’t feel like, “Oh this sucks.” I kind of wanted to DJ a Bar Mitzvah in a Wookiee outfit. Can you tell us about the new album?

Is Guster the sweetest band of all time?

I kind of have to remind everybody we are the punch line of a joke. I don’t

It’s our seventh full-length album and our first with Luke Reynolds as a writer. It’s the fastest we’ve ever made a record.

We did it with this guy, Richard Swift, who we had known. He works really quickly and also he’s a little bit off axis; he is a very unconventional record producer. You’ll hear me talk about this a lot, about staying out of our comfort zone and trying to challenge ourselves; it was a really good match. We wrote very slowly over a 2-year period and at the end felt like we had songs that we’re really proud of and felt like it was a step forward in a way that we require of ourselves at this point. We went in to Cottage Grove, Oregon, and made this crazy record with this crazy guy. We’re super proud of it. I like it. I can’t wait to hear it live.

It’s coming together now. We never consider how to play these songs live when we write the record. There’s always a month or so where we try to figure out how to present these songs in the best possible light. The live versions are going great. What advice would you give to a band that’s interested in growing a fan base?

I was in Seattle last night and I was talking to Phil Ek who mixed our record but also made records with Fleet Foxes, Modest Mouse, and Band of Horses. We were late night bullshitting about the music industry and about bands. At the end of it, he’s like, “It’s just about songs. And you know that.” That’s the thing. Eventually what you figure out is that you can always luck into something with some cool bells and whistles, but the bands that really last are bands that write songs. The songs are the most important part of the whole process. Would you say you’re happy with all that you’ve accomplished in 20 years?

Yeah. It’s a rare feat for there to be a band that’s been around for as long as we have who I feel, and I don’t know if people agree with this, is making the best music of our career. That’s something that I am really proud of. There is this idea, and it’s the title of the record, “Evermotion.” We never feel like we’ve done it. It’s all sealed from a sense that we can always make better records and put on better shows and this real interest in pushing ourselves forward as much as possible. That has a lot to do with why we’re still a band for as long as we’ve been. We’ve always been interested in writing better songs and making better records.

METAL | IN THIS MOMENT

In This Moment has grown from the stomp and thunder of a nu-metal band with a screaming coquette up front to a brazen theatrical display with a goddess at the helm. Formed in 2005 by singer Maria Brink, the band initially seethed on stage with little or no production other than its brutal metal fronted by a woman slant. Now taking a page from the Alice Cooper and Rob Zombie school of horror, the band is forging a new metal rant with awesome set design and song specific choreography. It’s a spectacular spectacle and it’s a show for those who like it and need it that way. In This Moment plays with Butcher Babies and Upon a Burning Body on Sunday, April 19, at Water Street Music Hall, 204 North Water Street. 7 p.m. $25-$30. waterstreetmusic.com; inthismomentofficial.com. — BY FRANK DE BLASE Breizh Amerika Collective.

Virtuoso vespers Monteverdi Vespers of 1610 PRESENTED BY PEGASUS EARLY MUSIC SUNDAY, APRIL 19 HOCHSTEIN PERFORMANCE HALL, 50 NORTH PLYMOUTH AVENUE 4 P.M. (PRE-CONCERT TALK AT 3 P.M.) | $10$25; GRADES 3-12 ADMITTED FREE | PEGASUSEARLYMUSIC.ORG THERE’S ALSO A FREE PUBLIC REHEARSAL AT HOCHSTEIN ON THURSDAY, APRIL 16, 2:30 P.M. TO 5:30 P.M. [ PREVIEW ] BY DAVID RAYMOND

Deborah Fox, Pegasus Early Music’s artistic director, says it has long been a dream of hers that the organization perform Claudio Monteverdi’s Vespers of 1610, a work she has loved since she first encountered it a couple of decades or so ago as a lute student. This weekend, Fox’s dream comes true at the Hochstein Performance Hall, when 25 musicians will take the stage (and a few other locations within the hall) to present this great work. The concert is the culmination of Pegasus’s 10th-anniversary season as well. This grandiose 90-minute piece is not often performed (in fact, it’s not known whether Monteverdi himself ever heard it in its entirety). It was last heard in Rochester about 10 years ago at the Memorial Art Gallery. The Vespers has always been recognized as a milestone in musical history by one of history’s revolutionary composers, but it is not nearly as well-known as Monteverdi’s operas, or other Baroque religious vocal masterpieces. Despite its rarity, Fox says, “the Monteverdi Vespers is on a par with the other great Baroque sacred works, like Messiah or the Bach Passions. The reason it is done less often, I think, is that to do it properly, you really need to have people who specialize in the 17th-century Italian style.” That style is not only brilliant and florid, it’s often dramatic — a reminder that Monteverdi, who lived from 1567 to 1643, was the first great composer of opera (his “Orfeo,” the earliest opera to be performed regularly, had its premiere a few years before his Vespers). “There are fast notes upon fast notes for the singers,” Fox says. “The score is full of ornamentation — and Monteverdi wrote it all out and insisted it be sung exactly as written.” The virtuosity also extended to the composer. Fox describes this huge score

as “a virtuoso display of every kind of music extant at the time.” Those musical styles are sacred — including sections of the Vespers (evening prayer service) alongside settings of other Biblical texts including the Magnificat and the Song of Solomon — and secular, with music based on dance rhythms. Fox points out that before publishing this massive work in 1610, when he was in his 40’s, Monteverdi hadn’t published any sacred music. The Vespers was probably a collection of pieces Monteverdi had written at different times; some scholars think it was intended as Eastman School professor and lutenist Paul O’Dette will conduct the a sort of musical resume Pegasus Early Music program, “Monteverdi Vespers of 1610.” for prospective sacred PHOTO PROVIDED employers in Rome or Venice. (The opening together, headed by “the perfect person”: piece, in fact, is stolen in part from the the Eastman School’s lutenist and brassy prologue to “Orfeo.”) conductor Paul O’Dette, who recently Whatever its origins, the Monteverdi

Vespers is anything but a hodgepodge, says Fox, who points out the piece’s dramatic symmetry: large choral sections alternate with compositions for one, two, three, or four voices and different kinds of instrumental accompaniment. These pieces can include everything from medieval chants, to music in a descriptive madrigal style, to elaborate contrapuntal writing. The choral movements are often written in an antiphonal style — pitting two choral-instrumental groups against each other in counterpoint or echo effects. This requires space, which makes Hochstein Performance Hall an ideal venue. There’s even an instrumental sonata, placed in the middle of the piece. “It all works so beautifully together,” Fox says. “And while individual sections are often performed alone, Monteverdi did publish the Vespers as a whole and I think he wanted it performed as a whole.” Getting 25 of the requisite expert earlymusic performers to put on this piece takes determination, but Fox has put them

won a Grammy as well as an Early Music America Award along with his wife, the viola da gamba player Christel Thielmann, who will also be among the instrumentalists. The rest of the ensemble is equally well-schooled in the Monteverdi style. The brass ensemble includes two cornetti and three sackbuts, predecessors of the modern trumpet and trombone, respectively. And there are nine singers heard in various combinations. Along with the string and brass ensembles, the group will employ not one, but three lutes, to be performed by O’Dette, Fox, and Ryaan Ahmed. A lot of skill and scholarship goes into preparing a performance of the Monteverdi Vespers, but the result, says Fox, should be “thrilling. I have heard this piece countless times, and I am continually amazed by Monteverdi’s originality and his imagination.”

ART | “MUSICIANS: PHOTOGRAPHS BY BOB CATO”

RIT’s University Gallery will throw an opening reception for “Musicians: Photographs by Bob Cato” on Thursday, April 16. The exhibit features contemporary large format prints, some never before published, from Cato’s archive of photos, negatives, and slides. Over the course of 50 years in graphic arts and design, Cato worked for magazines like “Glamour” and “McCall’s,” headed Columbia Records’ creative services, and provided art direction for George Harrison’s Dark Horse Records. His photographic portfolio reads like a who’s who of 20th-century music with shots of Miles Davis, Lena Horne, John Coltrane (pictured), Simon & Garfunkel, Eric Clapton, and Blood, Sweat and Tears. Cato’s corpus of work was recently acquired and assimilated into RIT’s Cary Graphic Design Archive including more than 450 of his photographs, as well as paintings, sculptures, sketchbooks, and other artistic accoutrements from his career. Cato, who passed away in 1999, guest lectured at RIT on several occasions, and often spent time reviewing student portfolios and connecting them to potential careers. In this exhibit, Cato’s legacy of inspiration for the next generation of visual designers lives on. The opening reception for “Musicians: Photographs by Bob Cato” is on Thursday, April 16, at RIT’s University Gallery, James. E. Booth Hall, 1 Lomb Memorial Drive. 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Free.

Art More than this “Object Alchemy: New Sculpture by Lee Hoag” THROUGH SATURDAY, APRIL 25 AXOM GALLERY, 176 ANDERSON AVENUE WEDNESDAY THROUGH FRIDAY, 12 P.M. TO 6 P.M.; SATURDAY, 12 P.M. TO 5 P.M. 232-6030 | AXOMGALLERY.COM; LEEHOAG.COM [ REVIEW ] BY REBECCA RAFFERTY

An already stylish studio and gallery shared and operated by Rick, Robin, and Margot Muto, AXOM Gallery is becoming even more so with the integration of a design showroom. With a formal opening of AXOM Objects coming up in May, Robin has already begun showcasing a variety of elegant and useful modern objects — from tableware, to lighting, to furniture — by a handful of domestic and international artists. Currently complementing these offerings is the sculptural work of Lee Hoag, peppered throughout the entrance area showroom, and on display in the gallery-proper. It was a great move on the part of the Mutos to include some of Hoag’s pieces amid the showcased furniture, as it gives visitors — and potential buyers — a sense of what living with the work is like. And the sculpture is pleasing to be around without being distracting; it’s a body of understated statement pieces. Carefully balanced assemblages of various objects robbed of their original utility, the works are pared-down, streamlined forms of fascination. Hoag has a slick knack for seeing and acting on the unpredicted potential between objects. I had a lot of fun coming up with meaningless labels for his slippery sculpture: Post-industrial Pop artifacts. Space-age elementals. Haute Future. This theft of function is ironic enough, but there is humor also in applying a skillful, handcrafted element to factory-produced, “readymade” materials. Hoag is interested in the slippery status not only of material objects and their function, but also of assigned meaning. Each work is amusingly titled with puns, cleverly referencing the components used to create it (“Socket 20 CITY APRIL 15-21, 2015

Toomey” describes its contents; “Party Pooper” includes a plunger), or playing off an object association derived from the mind of the artist himself. Hoag uses a variety of manufactured media, including metal bowls, ceramic

vases, cords and tubes, baskets, gaskets, and other hardware; all disparate objects fitted together so carefully that the end results seem meant to be. The title and form of “Tweedle Dee” potentially alludes to multiple things, simultaneously referencing the tinker-y manipulation of the objects by the artist, the twisty bit at the top which looks like a citrus juicer, the squat and bulbous shape of the character from “Through the Looking-Glass,” and likely some that I haven’t recognized. Where’s Tweedle Dum, then? Beware the snark: the piece bounces a distorted reflection of the viewer from its central, high-polished surface. Other works are large totems, stacked abstractions not of animals, but of the objects that fill our daily lives. Hoag has consciously named the ones that feel like a presence accordingly. “Embody” reminds me of an urn, but also a simple, streamlined robot, sterile without being stale. Associations float and flounder, and I arrive at some meaning: a futuristic encasement for organic remains and electronic components, which can wirelessly transmit thought. What can I say — I dig sci-fi. “Chum” has a similar effect, with a copper-banded tube slung over its back and hanging down like arms, and dimples in the elongated metal “head” like a thousand primitive eyes. Vessels figure greatly in the work, the

transparency or opacity of which affect the tone of each piece and provide clues to how we may imagine the new object’s function. But the interpretation of each work is left up to the individual. In a provided statement, Hoag says he intends for his sculptures to exist as objects of contemplation, “marked in some way by the viewer’s own response, imaginations, and interpretations — changed.” A sealed off, see-through container in the elegant, vacuum-like work, “Succor,” is connected by a hose to a decorative vessel with a fluted end. I saw something the Ghostbusters would use, if that

“Every Witch Way” is part of “Object Alchemy: New Sculpture by Lee Hoag,” currently on view at AXOM Gallery. PHOTO PROVIDED

story was set in a steampunk version of the Arabian Nights tales. Gazing at the work, I imagined the apparatus being used to trap some mythic smoke entity, which would remain on display in the glass cage. That may sound ridiculous, but it’s mine, an intangible experience floating between the sculpture and my internal library of associations. Every onlooker will see something entirely different. So the artist is an alchemist, spinning the mundane into gold. But there is also a constant shift going on between the work and its various viewers, who have an unconscious or realized power to transform what stands before them.

Hoag’s work stabs a pin in what a lot of representational art cannot — that no matter what you’re looking at in this wide world, you’re changing it based on your own life experiences. What you encounter is filtered through transparent layers upon layers of experience and emotion, memory and dream. A closing reception and artist talk will take place at AXOM Gallery on Saturday, April 25, 3 to 5 p.m.

COMEDY | JOHN WITHERSPOON

It’s not easy to play the comic relief opposite actors like Tracy Morgan and Eddie Murphy, but John Witherspoon has proven himself more than equal to the task. With roots in stand-up, Witherspoon has starred in films like the “Friday” trilogy, “Boomerang,” and “Hollywood Shuffle,” and racked up TV credits in “The Boondocks,” “The Wayans Bros.,” and “The Tracy Morgan Show.” Most of his roles cast him as a father figure, but it’s debatable if he ever approaches a good example — which is kind of the point. John Witherspoon takes the stage this weekend at the Comedy Club, 2235 Empire Boulevard, Webster, for shows on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, 7:30 p.m. and 10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. $15-$25. thecomedyclub.us. — BY JONATHAN MEAD Calling All Local Artists.

EARLY SEASON PERENNIALS AVAILABLE NOW FILM | FAST FORWARD FILM FESTIVAL

On Friday, April 17, and Saturday, April 18, get into the spirit of Earth Week with the first Fast Forward Film Festival. This event challenged local filmmakers to create a short film (under five minutes in length) to raise awareness for an environmental cause of their choosing. On Friday, the Little Theatre will host a screening of the top 16 films selected by the festival jury, narrowed down from the nearly 100 entries that were received. Then on Saturday, the Dryden Theatre will hold a Festival Gala and Awards Ceremony, including a second screening of the films in competition for cash prizes. Categories include “Most Compelling, Engaging, and Inspiring”; “Most Unique Perspective”; and the “Strongest Call to Action.” Following the screening, there will also be a public vote for the Audience Choice Award. Friday evening’s screening will begin at 7 p.m. Tickets are $5 for adults and $4 for students with ID, seniors (65+), and Little Theatre members. Saturday’s Festival Gala starts at 5:30 p.m., with the Finalist Screenings & Award Ceremony set to begin at 8 p.m. Tickets for this two-part event include entrance to the Eastman House and gardens and are $25 for adults and $20 for students (with ID) and seniors (65+).

CITY NEWSPAPER’S

h t 6annual THEATER | “IRENE”

When the musical “Irene” opened on Broadway in 1919, Pultneyville’s Gates Hall was already well over half a century old. Now, almost a century after its premiere, “Irene” is coming to Gates Hall this weekend in a rare production by the Hall’s resident company, the Gatesingers. A nationwide hit in the 1920’s and revived on Broadway in the 1970’s with Debbie Reynolds, the show tells the familiar story of a poor but plucky Irish girl who fulfills her dream of owning a piano store (and also manages to land a wealthy husband), and includes still-remembered songs like “Alice Blue Gown,” “They Go Wild, Simply Wild, Over Me,” “I’m Always Chasing Rainbows,” and “You Made Me Love You.” Gates Hall is about a 35-minute drive from Rochester, and both the historic venue (the oldest continuously-in-use community theater in the country) and the productions are well worth the trip. Pultneyville Gatesingers present “Irene” on Friday, April 17, and Saturday, April 18, at 7:30 p.m., Sunday, April 19, at 3 p.m., and April 24 and April 25 at 7:30 p.m. at Gates Hall, 4107 Lake Road, Pultneyville. $10-$12. 315-5893326; gateshall.com. — BY DAVID RAYMOND Gregory St. $7. 845-706-2621. cardiocharleston.com.

Just the facts “True Story”

(R), DIRECTED BY RUPERT GOOLD OPENS FRIDAY [ REVIEW ] BY ADAM LUBITOW

Seeing James Franco and Jonah Hill’s names attached to a film typically means you’re sitting down for a viewing of the latest stoner bromance from the Apatow troupe of comedy, so it’s probably a bit surprising that their latest, “True Story,” is actually an earnest drama exploring the murky, elastic nature of journalistic truthiness. Knowing that, it might surprise you even more to learn that their performances are not

the problem in writer-director Rupert Goold’s intriguing but curiously lifeless morality play, which floats some interesting ideas but ultimately doesn’t do much with them. Hill plays Michael Finkel, a journalist for The New York Times Magazine whose rising career is cut short after it’s revealed that he fabricated certain details of his recent exposé about child slavery in Africa, passing off a composite character as an actual person. He’s promptly let go from the paper amid a flurry of shame and disgrace. With the stigma of being a liar now attached to him, he finds himself a pariah in the journalism world and struggles to find work. It’s at this particularly low point that Finkel learns about a man named Christian Longo (Franco). Accused of murdering his wife and three young children, Longo was using Finkel’s name as an alias before being apprehended in Mexico by the FBI. Finkel decides to visit Longo at the Oregon prison where he’s being held, as much out of sheer curiosity as out of the sense that it might make

a good story and could become a path to earn back the respect he foolishly squandered. During their meeting, Longo implies his innocence but isn’t willing to divulge his story. At least not yet. He claims to be an admirer of Finkel’s work, and suggests that they make a bargain: Longo will speak only to him, but in exchange he requests the writer’s assurance that he’ll refrain from publishing anything he learns until after the conclusion of the trial. Longo also requests that Finkel give him writing lessons. The remainder of the film focuses on the twisty relationship between these two men as they continue to meet and gradually strike up a friendship of sorts. In time, Finkel begins to look at the two as mirrors of one another, and both journalist and subject are skilled in bending and stretching the truth to better suit their narrative. Finkel, for all his trouble, manages to land himself a book deal based on his continued conversations with Longo. Goold and co-writer David Kajganich layer on the similarities, conflating the two men and seemingly condemning them equal measure by suggesting that their sins are more or less the same, which is, frankly, nutty and overly simplistic. Franco and Hill each deliver strong performances, though it’s odd to see them paired together and not have the dialogue descend into the realm of dick and fart jokes. Franco’s projects a sleepy-eyed menace that suits the character, even if it negates Goold’s attempts to cast a bit of doubt

as to whether or not Longo is truly guilty. Hill plays Finkel as cocky and kind of a dick, but a completely convincing one. Felicity Jones is also on hand as Finkel’s wife, Jill, who grows to be the film’s moral compass. At one point Jill visits Longo on her own, stopping by to give her own frank appraisal of his particular failings as a non-sociopathic human being. Though it’s possible these visits actually happened, they feel like the contrived invention of a screenwriter looking to give the talented actress a juicy moment to make up for stranding her in the “worried girlfriend” role the remainder of the time. “True Story” is the feature debut for Goold, who brings with him a reputation as an accomplished British stage director. He brings a restrained style to the story, and though the film avoids feeling stagey, the pacing does occasionally drag, particularly in the middle act. His script is based on Michael Finkel’s own memoir, “True Story: Murder, Memoir, Mea Culpa,” which as the title suggests, it the writer’s self-described atonement for allowing himself to be taken in by Longo’s lies and being blinded by the desire to further his own career. It’s a compelling story, and there’s an interesting movie to be mined from the material, but it doesn’t quite come together. The film’s ethical quandaries recall 2003’s “Shattered Glass,” another (much stronger) study of a journalist of questionable moral character. As is, it probably could have used more of its characters’ awareness that sometimes it takes skirting the facts to weave a truly gripping yarn.

Sorry to have to say this, but late-career Al Pacino is sort of cheesy and mildly creepy. I guess I’d pinpoint the evolution as beginning two decades ago with his Oscarwinning role in “Scent of a Woman,” which he seemed to take as a mandate to overact forthwith. Sure, he’s made some decent flicks in the meantime — “Heat,” “Donnie Brasco,” “The Insider” — but whatever it was that placed him among the best of his generation has diminished in intensity over the years. Ironically, it’s by bringing all of that to the table that Pacino absolutely nails his title role in the otherwise formulaic “Danny Collins,” offering up his best performance in quite some time as an aging music icon hoping to recapture his passion and make his third act matter. Collins’ odyssey is set into motion upon receiving a fan letter from John

Lennon 40 years late, inspiring the weary entertainer to shelve his extravagant lifestyle, ditch his trophy fiancée, and check into a New Jersey Hilton for a bit of redemption. He’s hoping to write a new song for the first time in decades, but his real dream is to connect with his estranged son (Bobby Cannavale). You can write the rest: rejections, relapses, setbacks, and joys, while still finding time to woo the adorably uninterested hotel manager (Annette Bening). Unfortunately, first-time filmmaker Dan Fogelman (he also wrote the script for “Crazy, Stupid, Love”) doesn’t miss an opportunity for emotionally manipulative plot contrivance, like learning disabilities and terminal illness, but his impeccable casting hides a multitude of sins. Pacino is wonderful, underplaying even the quietest moments and conveying Collins’ entrenched decency, especially in his scenes with the note-perfect Cannavale. And Pacino enjoys surprisingly excellent chemistry with Bening, who is as clever and charming as she’s ever been. I haven’t even mentioned ringers like Jennifer Garner and Christopher Plummer, saddled with dialogue no 85-year-old should have to utter but still sparkling like a star. You may not know her name, but anyone

with even a passing interest in art has seen her face. Viennese socialite Adele BlochBauer was a friend of painter Gustav Klimt, and in 1907 he introduced oil and gold to canvas in “Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer,” an image that would go on to grace coffee cups and magnets the world over. But in 1938, the painting fell victim to failed artist Adolf Hitler’s smash-and-grab across Europe, in which 5 million cultural artifacts were stolen from libraries, museums, churches, and the homes of Jewish families like the Bloch-

Bauers. Restitution attempts were made when possible following war’s end, and the delayed return of the Bloch-Bauer Klimt to its rightful owners is the subject of the unremarkable yet still occasionally stirring “Woman in Gold.” The always-welcome Helen Mirren tries on a clipped Austrian accent to play Adele Bloch-Bauer’s niece Maria Altmann, an expat living in Los Angeles and in need of a lawyer to claim her birthright, five Klimt paintings currently hanging in the Austrian national gallery. Enter the wildly-out-of-his-depth Ryan Reynolds as Randy Schoenberg, a young, struggling lawyer who begins helping Maria, reluctantly at first, but his enthusiasm escalating as he learns of the paintings’ value at well over $100 million. The stonewalling Austrian government has no intention of parting with the famous portrait of Adele, called “The Mona Lisa of Austria,” and what follows is a tale of heartbreaking setbacks and tiny victories as Maria and Randy search for a way to reunite Maria with her beloved aunt. Part buddy comedy, part Holocaust movie, part courtroom drama, and all mid-1990’s Miramax Oscar-bait, “Woman In Gold” hits all the expected beats, with Mirren singlehandedly carrying the film on her formidable shoulders as the alternately defeated and determined Maria. The most affecting parts of the film are actually the flashbacks, with the excellent Tatiana Maslany (“Orphan Black”) as the younger Maria, fiercely devoted to a family that wants her to escape Austria. The story of Maria Altmann’s quest for her family’s Klimts is fascinating and one that’s been told in a few worthy documentaries, but if you prefer your non-fiction prolonged and outfitted with a manipulative score, you could do worse than this true tale.

Sierra Club's Peter Debes says people will find ways to cut carbon emissions if they are challenged to do so. FILE PHOTO

We could still be technology leaders and get the economic benefits of being leaders, but we’re very soon going to lose that possibility if we don’t encourage going back to the future, back to using technology to help solve the problem. And that would, I think, include advanced-generation nuclear power. How much time does society have to rein in carbon emissions?

We published a paper about a year ago which originated to support the legal cases being filed by Our Children’s Trust against the government for not doing its job in looking out after the rights of young people. This paper showed that if you want to stabilize the planet’s energy balance, you would need to reduce emissions by 5 or 6 percent a year. Of course, that’s not occurring, but that’s what this legal case is. What they’re asking the government to do is provide a plan for how it’s going to reduce emissions at a rate that would stabilize the climate by the end of the century. That’s a very stiff requirement which is practically not going to be met, given the inertia in the energy systems, or at least it’d be very difficult. If we’d put a price on carbon to make the fossil fuel price honest, then 30 CITY APRIL 15-21, 2015

actually you could come close to that. The one encouraging thing is that the sinks for carbon (natural features such as forests and oceans which absorb carbon dioxide from the air) are somehow larger than what the scientific community understands. We know some of it’s going into the ocean — more than half of what’s disappearing is going into the ocean, and that’s completely expected. But it was expected that the amount going into sinks would decrease as we go along, but actually it’s been increasing. It’s partly going into the soil and into the biosphere, even though we’re cutting down more forests. There are ways to do both agriculture and forestry in ways that would suck up more carbon. That’s going to need to be part of the solution and makes it conceivable that you could still stabilize the climate by the end of the century. But that possibility disappears if we keep going gangbusters on fossil fuel use. I still think it’s a solvable problem, but only if we begin to move in the right direction, which we haven’t done yet.

Upgrades include; windows, doors, block windows, upgraded elec panel, siding, expanded blacktop driveway, central air, baths, and kitchen. Ryan Smith, Re/Max Realty Group 585-218-6802

Morningside neighborhood, this exceptionally well-maintained home, built in 1925, has been lovingly cared for by one owner for the past 48 years. Sunlight is so abundant in every room of this bright and cheery single-family residence that you’d never know it’s winter in Rochester when you’re indoors! Well-manicured pachysandra borders the front walkway, leading to a lovely, welcoming front porch. While the entryway guides you towards the staircase, you’ll first want to explore the incredibly spacious main floor. Most of the first floor boasts original narrow Rochester red oak hardwood; the kitchen shows beautifully with large, neutral ceramic tile flooring. The expansive kitchen, painted in soft sunshine yellow, is accented by cherry cabinets and neutral countertops in the work area, and easily has room enough for a table of ten or more near the windows overlooking the backyard. With one doorway from the kitchen leading to the dining room, and the second doorway leading to the living room, both of which open to one another on the same side of the house, the open traffic flow is ideal for entertaining. A cozy powder room completes the first floor. The airy living room provides plenty of space for comfortable seating, whether for everyday comfort or for a holiday party. Here, a brick surround accents a wood-burning fireplace and a stained glass window adds an artistic touch. The uninterrupted view to the dining room, the

expanse of space between both rooms, and the architecturally interesting large windows throughout provide atmosphere that invites you to feel right at home. Three pristine bedrooms accommodate several family members on the second floor. The large master bedroom is accented by the same stained glass window as seen in the living room; large windows provide ample natural light. The two smaller bedrooms are charming and equally bright. A large full bathroom is conveniently situated for easy access from all three bedrooms. An original floor-to-ceiling wall cabinet adds a unique touch to the second floor hallway. Outside, a detached two-car garage with remote access is at the rear of the long driveway. A stone patio near the backyard is the perfect spot for summer cookouts. Generous storage is available in both the basement and attic levels. At 1,836 square feet and with an asking price of $109,900, 57 Holcroft Road can’t be beat when it comes to a great neighborhood, warmth and charm, and especially the loving care that has gone into keeping this house so up to date. For additional information, or to see first-hand the exceptional value in this home, contact Ryan Smith of RE/MAX Realty Group, Ltd. at 585-248-0250. by Marian S. Moskow Marian works as a health project coordinator at the University of Rochester School of Nursing, and is a Landmark Society volunteer.

To locate an entity near you, you may call the toll-free helpline maintained by New York State Banking Department at 1-877-Bank-NYS or visit the Department`s website at www.banking.state. ny.us FORECLOSURE RESCUE SCAMS Be careful of people who approach you with offers to “save” your home. There are individuals who watch for notices of foreclosure actions in order to unfairly profit from a homeowner’s distress. You should be extremely careful about any such promises and any suggestions that you pay them a fee or sign over your deed. State law requires anyone offering such services for profit to enter into a contract which fully describes the services they will perform and fees they will charge, and which prohibits them from taking any money from you until they have completed all such promised services. Section 1303 NOTICE YOU ARE IN DANGER OF LOSING YOUR HOME If you do not respond to this summons and complaint by serving the copy of the answer on the attorney for the mortgage company who filed this foreclosure proceeding against you and filing the answer with the court, a default judgment may be entered and you may lose your home. Speak to an attorney or go to the court where your case is pending for further information on how to answer the summons and protect your property. Sending a payment to your mortgage company will not stop this foreclosure action. YOU MUST RESPOND BY SERVING A COPY OF THE ANSWER ON THE ATTORNEY FOR THE PLAINTIFF MORTGAGE COMPANY AND FILING AN ANSWER WITH THE COURT.

Fun [ NEWS OF THE WEIRD ] BY CHUCK SHEPHERD

The Importance of Family

On Feb. 9 a single traffic stop in Alderson, West Virginia, resulted in the arrest of six people from the same family, trafficking in stolen power tools (including one man who traded a leaf blower, hedge trimmer and weed trimmer for Percocet pills). However, a month later, members of an even more charming family were caught in raids in Elyria, Ohio. Officers from three jurisdictions arrested 34 people — all related to each other — in connection with a $400,000 drug operation.

Government in Action

— The predawn line in March actually started forming at midnight, snaking around the building in Maitland, Florida, but it wasn’t for concert tickets. The dozens of people needed coveted visitor passes just to speak to an IRS agent — because budget cuts and personnel reductions have limited services. “I just came here to verify my identity,” said one frustrated taxpayer, who arrived at 8 a.m. and would not be served that day. The agency said its budget had been cut by $1 billion since the congressional “sequestration” in 2011. — Nope, They Haven’t Grown Back Yet: Canada’s Department of Veterans Affairs requires any vet receiving disability benefits to have a doctor recertify the condition annually — including people like Afghan war double-leg amputee Paul Franklin. He complained to Canadian Broadcasting Corp. News in March that he had been harshly threatened with loss of benefits if he failed to file (even though the department told CBC News that it might perhaps relax the certification requirement to “every third year”).

Wait, What?

— Several theaters in Denmark reported in March that they had begun adding subtitles — to Danish-language films, because so many customers complained that the dialogue was incomprehensible. Apparently, it is widely known that spoken Danish is harder to understand than the written, but Copenhagen’s website The Local reported that actors had rebelled at improving their diction, claiming that their “mumbling” adds “realism” to the films. — Attention to Detail: Major League pitcher Max Scherzer, new this season to the Washington Nationals, informed manager Matt Williams in March, according to a New York Times report, that he requires assistance when he warms up during daily practice sessions. He spoke of the importance of simulating actual game conditions, and since Scherzer is a starting pitcher, he needed someone to stand beside him and hum “The Star-Spangled Banner” before he begins his practice pitching.

Perspective

Lawyers Brendan and Nessa Coppinger live in a Washington, D.C., row house next door to a tobacco user, whose smoke seeps into their unit, and (especially since Nessa is pregnant) the Coppingers have filed a $500,000 lawsuit against the neighbor. However, the anti-corruption website Republic Report found that one of Nessa Coppinger’s clients is Suncoke Energy, which is being sued by four Ohio residents who allege that Suncoke does to them what Coppinger’s neighbor does to her and her fetus. (Suncoke’s “clouds or haze,” containing particulates of lead, mercury, arsenic, chromium, creosote, coal tar pitch and other alarming substances, allegedly threatens the neighbors’ health and property values.)

[ LAST WEEK’S SOLUTION ON PAGE 32 ]

[ LOVESCOPE ] BY EUGENIA LAST ARIES (March 21-April 19): You’ll attract a lot of attention, but not all will be worth your while. Be leery of anyone who is still in a relationship but trying to spend time with you. Opt for the partner who is free and clear of any past commitments. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Someone you have always had an interest in will take note that you would like to spend time together. Listen carefully to what’s being offered so you don’t mistake an intimate relationship for a friendship. Make your position and your expectations very clear. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Your diversity and ability to

jump from one topic and activity to anther will draw all sorts of suitors to your side. Honesty will be the key to finding the right partner. Don’t play with anyone’s emotions. Set your sights high, and make what you desire clear. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Charm and expressing your knowledge and attributes will bring you in contact with someone who will compliment you every step of the way. Avoid anyone who appears uncertain about his or her needs or plans for the future. Common interests will lead to a long-lasting relationship.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Your outgoing personality will attract someone’s attention. Don’t engage in a debate. Bide your time, listen attentively and make a clearcut decision whether you want to pursue the person showing interest. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Take your time when it comes to love. Observe whomever interests you until you are sure you want to engage in friendly banter with the intent of intimacy. The person you choose is likely to have some emotional issues that might deter you from moving forward.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Your indecisiveness will hinder your chance to find true love. Not being able to make a commitment or being evasive when asked how you feel or if you care will lead to a parting of the ways. Do a little soul searching before you opt to let someone turn and walk away. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You’ll be attracted to individuals who possess a unique quality or quirky personality. Don’t fool yourself into thinking you can have an ordinary relationship with someone who comes from a different belief, philosophy or lifestyle. Don’t pursue someone with the intent

to make him or her change. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You’ll have too many opportunities when it comes to love and romance. Bide your time, have some fun and enjoy the company of partners who share your interests, concerns and beliefs. Making a commitment too quickly will lead to doubt and having second thoughts. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Stick close to home, and choose partners who fit your way of life. You may be enticed by someone unique or unpredictable, but in the end, you will face problems that will leave you wishing you had pursued someone who possesses a

practical and stable attitude. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Look at your past relationships and consider if you made a mistake walking away from someone you used to love. Backtrack and find out if the spark still exists. Addressing your past will enable you to move forward. Romance is looking good. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You’ll have trouble when it comes to emotional deception. Either you will find it hard to be honest about the way you feel, or the object of your desires will not be forthright with you. A secret affair will tempt you, but it won’t bring you the happiness you desire.
