A tech park in a rural area
On plans to locate STAMP – the Science, Technology, and Advanced Manufacturing Park – in rural Genesee County: Suburban sprawl and
reliance on the automobile for long-distance commuting are hardly the way of the future – certainly not “a transformational opportunity,” to quote Joe Morelle. The STAMP project is one example of this mindset, but New York State is also funding over $140 million on the Kendrick Road - Route 390 interchange for more single-occupant vehicles going to the UR and MCC. Some say that Western New York is 10 years behind the times; the Interstate Highway Act was enacted in 1956. Most regions are now supporting existing infrastructure in urban areas; Eastman Business Park and Rochester Tech Park would be prime sites. PAUL TANKEL
Repeating the fallacy that STAMP is only 40 minutes from Rochester will not make it so. As a favored project of the powers that be, STAMP is a fait accompli at this point, but at least let’s not play fast and loose with the facts. Google Maps says 52.6 miles, 52 minutes from Main and Clinton to Route 77 and Judge Road, which is the edge of STAMP closest to Rochester. That’s 105 miles round trip. Generously assuming an average of 30 miles per gallon, that’s 3.5 gallons of 2 CITY

gas per vehicle per day for round trips from Rochester. At the current price of $3.65 per gallon, that’s $12.78 per day ($63.88 per week, $3,129.88 per 49-week working year) just for gas, not counting $2.10 in daily tolls, vehicle costs, insurance, repairs, etc. That’s one hour and 44 minutes (1.75 hours) every day spent commuting: 11 percent of your waking hours, 8.75 hours per week, 428.75 hours or almost 18 days per year spent commuting. Is this the lifestyle that we want? Is this the lifestyle that is appealing to future employees? Young worker preferences suggest not. Regardless, the gross inefficiencies of up to 10,000 workers commuting long distances does not make good public policy and should not be encouraged with public funds. Doing so makes a mockery of the state’s Public Infrastructure Policy Act, otherwise known as the Smart Growth Act. STAMP is not smart growth. It is dumb growth, of the highest order. URBAN EXPLORER
Since when is 40 minutes “only”? My commute is 40 minutes on a bicycle, and 10 minutes by car. People are going to be miserable driving 40 minutes every day to the middle of nowhere. Think about the winter we just had. I have co-workers who live “only” 40 minutes away in Livonia, and there were many days this winter where it took them 1.5 hours to get to our office near the airport. CLUVER
Votes for sale
On “Democracy for Sale,” Urban Journal: With all
due respect, there are many more ways to garner political influence than giving money to politicians or parties. For instance, pushing through legislation that caters to special interest groups,
racial, ethnic, or religious minorities, etc. Mark Shields reveals his bias by stating that Republican presidential hopefuls flocked to Las Vegas to “genuflect” to big money people to garner their influence. Thank heavens our Democratic politicians would never stoop to such low standards. I thought President Obama’s bowing and kowtowing to the Arab sheiks was especially touching. Let’s get serious: anyone running for political office in this country needs moneyed benefactors. To deny that or to paint any one political party or politician as tainted for doing so is naive. Changing the system is the answer, but how can our elected officials do so when they would be cutting off their nose to spite their face? I don’t know what the answer, is but I’d sure like to see a change. BOB TACITO
Is arts center what we need?
The mayor asked the governor for $100 million to build a performing arts center. Why is no one looking at a much cheaper alternative: remaining at the Auditorium Theater? The context of the discussion should, in my opinion, be: what does Rochester need most? There is general agreement on four things: jobs, better educational outcomes, public safety, lower taxes. So why ask the state for big bucks to replace a performing arts center downtown, when we have unmet needs? Let’s list the reasons why: 1) There is little free parking near the Aud. Answer: The city could facilitate arrangements for nighttime use of parking nearby, and patrons could walk a block or two and find on-street parking, (as I invariably am able to do). If
you haven’t noticed, this is now a safe neighborhood. 2) A new facility will somehow be “better.” Answer: When we go to New York City to see a show, the theater is usually 100110 years old, handsomely restored. That’s considerably older than the Aud. Here in Rochester, ticket prices are reasonable, and who knows how high they could go with a new theater? We are lucky to have a superb impresario who manages to get us nearly all the big Broadway shows. Rochester is not a big city, so we may need to wait until the next year for the road company to arrive. So what? We have no evidence that a new building would change that. Ticket prices are generally one-quarter the New York City price, and affordable to our middle class. I’m willing to wait. 3) The neighborhood is run down: That’s changing! There is new investment on East Main Street, and the Aud backs up to the vibrant Neighborhood of the Arts. The city has never made East Main Street a focus, but it could. Just look: The good things downtown are moving east. I am left with the conclusion that what really motivates the sponsors is anticipated big salaries, profits to be made with construction, and fees to be earned with operation of a new performing arts center. Why argue for new state money for new construction at the former McCurdy’s department store? Who says that should be Rochester’s biggest “ask” from the state? We are a struggling city with myriad challenges.
Checking in at festivals
On plans to require security checks at the Lilac Festival:
What does “check bags” mean? This is such a fundamental issue that it’s in our nation’s basic law. How is going to a festival consenting to a search? Has there been public discussion about this? Has the police department discussed this issue, the festival organizers, the Parks Department? I am curious if no one has raised legal issues and I wonder if we should. It is not, if I need to say it, a problem with an individual’s bags being checked, but a problem with not discussing the issue of why we have a protection from unwarranted searches in the Constitution.

I went back to that same local college to get my Masters in Education, and like the previous degree, I found that everything they taught us was not applicable to the real world of urban education. I am curious to see the results of these collaborations, since all the colleges will be bringing to the table is more “theories” about urban education. Until everyone starts to notice the elephant in the room (poverty and its effects on urban students), there will be no improvement to the current school situation at RCSD.

URBAN JOURNAL | BY MARY ANNA TOWLER
One more point of shame: we excel in sprawl Rochester has made another National Top 10 list. And like our poverty ranking, this one’s not something to be proud of. Earlier this month, the Smart Growth America organization released a study of metropolitan areas in the U.S., ranking them by how compact or sprawled out they are. Among the large metro regions (defined as those with a population of more than one million), we’re the third most sprawled out in the nation. The Houston area is first; Richmond, Virginia, is second. The most compact large regions: New York City, San Francisco, and Miami. The study, based on research by the Metropolitan Research Center, looks at factors such as neighborhood and employment density and the strength of downtowns and other “activity centers.” It also looks at quality-of-life issues: the cost of housing and transportation and the health and lifespan of residents, for instance. What it concludes is that people living in the more compact areas have a better quality of life. With quality of life, of course, what we view as “better” can depend on personal preference. Like the researchers, I don’t want to spend a lot of time driving to work, to the grocery store, or to a concert or a movie. I’m not interested in spending a lot of time on yard work. And I like living near lots of other people. For me, a dense city neighborhood offers a better quality of life than a suburb can. But obviously my friends in the suburbs are willing to put up with the driving, even in the winter, to be able to get whatever it is that they like about suburban living. Those are quibbles, though. The report’s overall conclusion is valid: sprawl has serious, negative consequences. And Rochester has a particularly troublesome type of sprawl: we’re spreading out despite negligible population growth. Rochester’s sprawl isn’t the result of a need for more housing, stores, and offices. Things have simply shifted outward, away from the core. That’s expensive. New roads, new sewers, new libraries and schools and public-safety services cost money. It’s also wasteful, because without population growth, new houses built in one place mean empty houses somewhere else. Empty stores. Empty churches. Empty libraries. Empty offices. And because of housing prices, zoning codes, and other factors, sprawl in the Rochester region has created a concentration of poverty that is an enormous burden to the city and its school district. Equally significant: our sprawl, combined with New York State’s peculiar system of

Rochester has a particularly troublesome type of sprawl: we’re spreading out despite negligible population growth.” multiple small municipalities, has created not only racial segregation but also mental, political, and emotional segregation. We live in different, very separate communities. We don’t know one another. And we don’t act like one community. That has had real consequences. We don’t feel like a community of over a million people because we aren’t one. We’re lots of little neighboring communities. And our schools, our public services, our taxes: all are affected, negatively. So is our regional clout. That’s the way we like it, so it’s not likely to change. But it’s a shame.

PSYCHOLOGY | BY TIM LOUIS MACALUSO
Game rage It’s not the video game per se that’s causing your rage; it’s the fact that you stink at it, says a new study from the University of Rochester. Intense feelings of anger after gaming are not unusual, the study says, but the content of the games is not to blame. The hostile behavior some gamers experience is actually linked to a sense of failure, the study says. The finding is the work of Andrew Przbylski at Oxford University and Richard Ryan at the UR. Their research, which recently appeared in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology,
is the first to examine what gamers experience while playing. And they discovered that it’s the failure to master the game that leads to frustration and aggression. Whether or not the game’s content is violent doesn’t matter, Ryan says. Ryan says he has long been interested in what drives gamers. He says the violence in the games is definitely an attraction to some people. But in their work with 300 gamers, Ryan and Przbylski say they found that threatening people’s sense of competency often causes them to become aggressive.
That sense of competence is integral to what motivates people, Ryan says. Conversely, people who win games have a positive experience of being entertained, Ryan says, and they don’t feel aggressive. The aggressive response to failure is not unique to gaming, he says. Individuals involved in sports have similar reactions, he says.

“The district would consist of 13 neighborhoods — everything within the inner loop and also High Falls, Upper East End, and the Monroe-Alexander neighborhood.” [ HEIDI ZIMMER-MYER, PRESIDENT OF THE RDDC ]
DOWNTOWN | BY TIM LOUIS MACALUSO
Expanded services possible downtown The Rochester Downtown Development Corporation has proposed the creation of a downtown business district that would, for a fee, provide enhanced services to property owners within the district’s borders. The district would consist of 13 neighborhoods — everything within the inner loop and also High Falls, Upper East End, and the Monroe-Alexander neighborhood. High Falls, Upper East End, and MonroeAlexander are included because developers and investors are now considering those areas to be part of downtown, says Heidi ZimmerMyer, president of the RDDC. Zimmer-Myer gave a brief presentation on the proposed district to members of City Council recently. Council members had concerns about the size of the new district, as well as neighborhood identity. The district would be created by collapsing the Main Street Enhancement District, Downtown Special Services, and the RDDC into a new organization, the Rochester Downtown Partnership. The partnership would be governed by a 15-member board of property owners, tenants, and city appointees. The services provided for property owners would fall into the categories of cleanliness and maintenance; safety and hospitality; beautification; and market
support. Some of the services would be litter and weed removal; sidewalk cleaning; limited snow and ice removal; decorative lighting; event production and programming; and support of neighborhood groups and business associations. The service fees haven’t been established yet. Zimmer-Myer is supposed to give a more detailed report to Council members in the coming weeks. One of the major concerns about the proposal, according to Council President Loretta Scott, is how to preserve the individuality of the neighborhoods if they’re all lumped together into one big district. Zimmer-Myer says that individual identity is crucial and can be honored in many different ways. If there was a banner program, for example, the banners would be customized for each neighborhood, she says. The same sort of thing could be done with holiday decorations, she says. The marketing of the different neighborhoods would be individualized, Zimmer-Myer says, and some of the services would undoubtedly be different. Animal waste removal would be a bigger issue in the East End, for example, than it would at Four Corners, she says.

“Each of these neighborhoods has an architectural vernacular that’s unique,” Zimmer-Myer says. “It has a mix of commercial and residential and institutional [uses] that are unique. And the history and the stories about each one are quite individual. It would be throwing the baby out with the bathwater to run roughshod over that.” A majority of property owners within the proposed district would have to sign a petition in favor before the district could be formed, Zimmer-Myer says. She says she’s not sure of the exact percentage, but it has to be considerably more than 51 percent. The state comptroller and City Council would also have to approve the formation of the district.
POLICE | BY CHRISTINE CARRIE FIEN
Police reorg The Rochester Police Department will change from a two-section model — one on each side of the city — to a fivesection model in the not-too-distant future. The change will be gradual, with the department “reorganizing in place” over the next couple of years to test the new model. The phase-in approach will also limit capital expenses, at least in the beginning, officials say. City Council members got a brief look at the plan during a workshop session last week. The purpose of the reorganization is to strengthen the relationships between police and the community. Officers would be able to take ownership of their beats, Police Chief Mike Ciminelli said, and build relationships with neighborhoods. Still unanswered is how the police contract factors into the reorganization, long-term costs, and what staffing will be required under the new model. Ciminelli said more command staff will be needed. The downtown section will be expanded, but remain in the Sibley building. Additional police cars may be needed, too, because officers’ beats would be smaller. Mayor Lovely Warren said that initially, the RPD will use its three existing buildings — the two primary sections and the smaller downtown station — to test the new model. Car beats will be established and staff will be realigned according to the new organization. Doing this will allow some portion of the reorganization to begin almost immediately, said Deputy Mayor Leonard Redon, and limit upfront capital expenses. A more detailed report that includes staffing details is due next month.
ENVIRONMENT | BY JEREMY MOULE ILLUSTRATIONS | BY AUBREY BERARDINI
change: It’s all up to you Rochester’s environmental record is mixed Rochester’s history with the environment is complicated. The city’s early settlers marveled at High Falls, harnessing its roaring cascade to power their mills. But the industries mistreated the river by using it as a dumping site for their waste. The region also has some of the best farming soil in the world. But decades of decentralized development — sprawl — has eaten away acre after acre. It’s true that there has been progress on some fronts. The Genesee River is not as polluted as it once was, for example. But the Rochester region still has its share of environmental problems. Several issues — contaminated former industrial sites, for example — have persisted for decades. Other threats, such as the proliferation of tiny plastic particles in the Great Lakes, are just emerging. And the area has already started to experience effects from unmitigated global climate change. Earth Day is an opportunity to draw attention to those issues. “That’s kind of what Earth Day is about,” says Frank Regan, a local Sierra Club member who runs rochesterenvironment.com. “We’ve got a few moments to get people’s attention.” Five of the biggest local environmental issues are explained in the sections below. The list is not a comprehensive catalog of the area’s environmental problems; it’s meant to heighten awareness of a few critical issues. And Rochester has historical examples of why awareness is important. Take Irondequoit Bay, an ecologically and economically important part of the Lake Ontario coast. Approximately 50 years ago, the bay and its tributaries were turbid and withering. Thanks to the countywide consolidation of waste and storm sewer systems, including the construction of better, centralized treatment, the bay and its tributaries are clearer and healthier. The environment is more than just forests and cute animals. It’s water, air, food, shelter, and more. And it’s influenced, perhaps more than ever, by what people build, put down their drains, and buy.
Between Lake Ontario, the Genesee River, and a few of the Finger Lakes, the Rochester region has substantial freshwater resources. In recent years, governments, institutions, and residents have intensified efforts to keep those water bodies healthy. But problems persist. And the region’s largest water body, Lake Ontario, faces evolving, challenging issues. The water along the lake’s shore, especially a recessed area known as the Rochester Embayment, has long been plagued by nutrient pollution, phosphorus in particular. The phosphorus encourages algae growth, which in turn encourages bacterial growth and clouds the water. 6 CITY
APRIL 16-22, 2014
The lake provides drinking water for much of Monroe County, so its water quality is important from a public health perspective. But the algae, bacteria, and cloudy water often lead officials to close the beaches to swimming in the summer. Researchers and government officials have tried to address the sources of the pollution. They’ve improved water infrastructure and have even tried to get people to avoid using fertilizer on their lawns. But half of the phosphorus that enters the lake is still from human-related sources, says Joe Makarewicz, a SUNY Brockport professor who has spent years studying pollution in the lake and the local streams that flow into it. For the past few years, Makarewicz has led efforts to develop a sophisticated model that will let researchers close in on some of those remaining phosphorous sources. For example, researchers have long suspected that fertilizer from farm fields is a culprit, and Makarewicz’s model shows that’s true. But the new model also shows that smaller waste water treatment plants in the Genesee River watershed — which empties into the lake — are a problem, too, Makarewicz says. The plants aren’t held to the same regulatory discharge standards as Monroe County’s larger system. That’s good and bad news. The problem spots are easy to locate and address, unlike other nutrient pollution sources, Makarewicz says. But upgrading the plants would be expensive. “Until we tackle the Genesee, the near shore and the Rochester Embayment will continue to have problems,” Makarewicz says. In Lake Ontario and the other Great Lakes, a new problem is emerging, too. Researchers have identified tiny plastic fragments in the waters of each lake. They say consumer products such as exfoliating face washes, which often contain tiny plastic beads, are responsible. Water treatment plants probably aren’t filtering them out. Scientists say they’re worried the microplastics could be detrimental to the health of fish and other marine wildlife.
Water quality in Irondequoit Bay (top) is drastically better than it was heading into the 1970's. But the Genesee River (middle) carries phosphorous into the lake. The nutrient pollution encourages algae growth, which is often a factor in local public beach closings. FILE PHOTOS
Hemlock-Canadice State Forest Hemlock and Canadice are the last of the Finger Lakes with completely undeveloped shorelines, and that’s no accident. The lakes supply drinking water to the City of Rochester. Many years ago, the city purchased the land ringing the lakes to protect the water. But in 2010, the city sold all 7,000 acres of the land to the state, with both parties saying that the purpose of the transaction was to protect of the lands. Last year, the state issued a draft plan for how it’ll manage what’s now known as the Hemlock-Canadice State Forest. But the plan included relatively vague language about oil and gas drilling on the property. City officials and the public were alarmed about the possibility of drilling occurring close to the lakes. Environmentalists, in particular, worried that the plan would leave the areas under the forest’s
surface open to horizontal drilling and highvolume hydraulic fracturing. The State Department of Environmental Conservation received more than 400 comments on the plan, most dealing with oil and gas drilling. City officials, too, urged the DEC to write gas and oil drilling prohibitions into the plan. DEC spokespeople have said that the state has no intention of allowing drilling in the Hemlock-Canadice State Forest. And the management plan will reflect that, they’ve said. But the agency hasn’t yet issued a revised plan. As a backup, State Senator Ted O’Brien and the statewide Adirondack Mountain Club prepared legislation that would classify the Hemlock-Canadice forest as a unique area. The designation has stricter protections and includes prohibitions on gas and oil drilling. But the legislation has been shelved, pending the outcome of the DEC’s process.
The state purchased 7,000 acres of land surrounding Hemlock and Canadice lakes from the City of Rochester in 2010. But a state agency later released a draft management plan for the land which didn't explicitly prohibit oil and gas drilling, which concerned city officials and the public. FILE PHOTO
Fracking The state’s environmental review of highvolume hydraulic fracturing is entering its sixth year. Ultimately, state officials will use the review’s conclusions to decide whether to allow fracking in deep shale formations, particularly the Marcellus and Utica shales. The last major public step in the review came in September 2012, when State Health Department Commissioner Dr. Nirav Shah began studying the public health impacts of fracking. His review was supposed to take a few weeks, but Shah still isn’t finished, and now he’s reportedly stepping down from his job. Fracking is a deeply polarizing issue, but both opponents and supporters of the issue are frustrated with the pace of the review. Landowners and drilling companies say New York is missing out on a potential economic boom. And they’re suing the state in an attempt to force officials to make a decision. Fracking opponents continue to press lawmakers to prohibit the extraction technique. They’re concerned about potential for water and air pollution, along with community impacts and road damage from increased truck traffic. Opponents also wonder where the massive quantities of water for fracking wells will come from, and how or where used fracking fluid will be treated and-or disposed. Some communities have sought to protect themselves from drilling, should the state eventually allow fracking. They’ve put gas and oil extraction bans in place, and have successfully defended them against legal challenges.
In August 2012, a contingent of fracking opponents from the Rochester area traveled to a large protest in Washington, D.C. FILE PHOTOS

Brownfields For years, the state has offered tax credits to encourage cleanup and redevelopment of brownfields, which are former industrial properties with histories of contamination. But those tax credits are set to lapse in 2015. It’s up to the State Legislature to renew the program, but it hasn’t acted yet. Governor Andrew Cuomo offered a reform proposal and 10-year renewal provision in his 2014-15 budget proposal. But the final agreement between Cuomo and legislative leaders omitted the extension, and the reasons why aren’t clear. Developers, legislators, and state environmentalists all say they want the program renewed.
Senator O’Brien, the top Democrat on the Senate’s Environmental Conservation Committee, says he’s disappointed that the tax credit wasn’t extended. But the issue might be too complicated to resolve in budget negotiations, he says. O’Brien says he hopes the Legislature renews the brownfield tax credit program before the session ends in June. And he says he’s working on renewal legislation. Cuomo says he wants to make the program more cost efficient, and his proposal included some changes in eligibility for brownfield tax credits. He wants the credits to go to economically stressed neighborhoods, high-priority economic development projects, and affordable housing. But developers say that the program works well as it is and that it has been responsible for significant investment in New York communities. There could be as many as 10,000 brownfields statewide. In Rochester, more than 100 brownfields have been identified in and around the Bull’s Head neighborhood, and another 80 sites are in the 14621 ZIP code. Monroe County’s suburbs have brownfields, too.
A state tax credit program is meant to encourage clean-up and redevelopment of brownfields like the Vaccuum Oil site in the Plymouth-Exchange Neighborhood (top) and a former industrial site on Whitney Street on the city's west side. FILE PHOTOS

Communication Environmental issues can be intricate, and the problems are often connected. As a result, environmentalists struggle with explaining these complex issues in ways that resonate with the public. That’s no small problem, since public support is necessary to spur action on issues such as climate change. And that involves convincing people that these issues affect their lives. Environmentalists have succeeded in building public support on some issues, and fracking is a big one. Fracking opponents have stressed the extraction technique’s potential to harm air, water, roads, and property values, and in doing so have hit a public interest sweet spot. That they link those problems to one identifiable, preventable source may help. It’s not as easy to explain to someone in Hamlin why taxpayer money should be used to encourage redevelopment of a former junkyard in the city, for example. Some environmental groups have tried to seize on social media to get their message out. And it seems like a logical move, given the platforms’ explosive growth. But social media has pitfalls. The Sierra Club’s Regan says that too often users including environmentalists only interact or connect with like-minded people. Regan says environmental groups and advocates need to try new approaches to win over the public. They need to look beyond feel-good events and discussions, he says, and reach people who don’t already have the same mindset they do. “If you’re not changing everybody’s mind, you’ve got to think of something else,” Regan says. “Because what you’re doing is not working.”

Climate change fight: it’s up to you Over the past several months, top scientists from around the world have issued stark warnings about climate change. It’s here, it’s happening on a global scale, and countries are not prepared, they say. Climate change is the defining environmental issue of the modern age. But governments across the world have dragged their feet on cutting the greenhouse gas emissions that are driving this disaster. People can, however, act locally. Local action on climate change is the theme of the Rochester Sierra Club chapter’s annual Earth Day environmental forum, which will be held at 7 p.m. on April 17, at First Unitarian Church, 220 South Winton Road. The featured speaker is Mark Lowery, a climate policy analyst with the State Department of Environmental Conservation’s Office of Climate Change. The office leads the state’s Climate Smart Communities program, a voluntary initiative for New York communities. Communities that participate in the program typically develop plans laying out how they can reduce their greenhouse gas emissions and how they can best prepare for hazards from ongoing or anticipated climate shifts. Because it’s a voluntary program, Climate Smart works best when community members push their elected officials to join, Lowery says. “What we see in many communities is that people just want to do the right thing,” he says. “They’re worried about the world we’re going to leave to our children.”
Local governments can play a substantial role in reducing the state’s greenhouse gas emissions through land-use policies, building codes, planning, and municipal energy use, Lowery says. Participating communities receive significant technical assistance from the state in developing their plans. “We leave it up to the communities to decide what is best for them,” Lowery says. “Where can they get good return on their investment, how can they best address their vulnerabilities, and what do they have the capacity to do?” But communities that plan for climate change and take action to cut emissions often recognize some side benefits. In practical terms, the planning efforts often save communities money, Lowery says. One of the first things many do is conduct an energy audit of municipal buildings, he says. That often leads them to pursue improvements that will reduce energy consumption, such as installing new windows or more efficient heating and cooling systems. The planning can also better position local governments to pursue state or federal funding to install renewable energy systems, such as solar panels or heat pumps, he says. Frank Regan, a Sierra Club member who is helping organize this year’s forum, says he hopes Lowery’s presentation sparks productive conversation about climate change. And he hopes the people in the audience then go out and try to convince residents and officials in their home communities to develop climate change plans, he says.

About Face Open Face Sandwich Eatery 651 SOUTH AVE. 232-3050, OPENFACESANDWICHEATERY.COM TUESDAY-SATURDAY, 11 A.M.-7 P.M. [ REVIEW ] BY LAURA REBECCA KENYON
If the South Wedge’s Open Face Sandwich Eatery isn’t on your radar, you’re not alone. “We get a lot of people who come in and ask how long we’ve been here,” says owner Jared Valentine. “We say, ‘10 years.’” Open Face, a small shop on South Avenue, is celebrating its 10th anniversary this month. Since 2004, it has taken a unique approach to sandwiches — you could say Open Face thinks outside of the lunchbox. These aren’t foot-long subs or NYC deli-style fare. Open Face offers fresh takes on fillings, sides, and presentation, with options for vegetarians, vegans, and those eating gluten-free. Take, for example, the mashed-pea sandwich ($8.50 with a side). Served open faced, two crunchy slices of toasted wheat, sourdough, or rye bread are heaped with fresh and brightly green mashed peas; the mix is both a little sweet and a little starchy. The peas are then topped with bits of smoky bacon, a sweet
and acidic pomegranate-balsamic drizzle, and dotted with a mildly funky melted gorgonzola cheese. (Vegans and vegetarians have the option of ordering it without bacon or cheese.) It’s a delicious sandwich that satisfies, but doesn’t leave you feeling heavy and weighed down. Similarly, the corn mash ($8.50 with a side) tops your choice of toasted bread with roasted and smashed corn that has been mixed with diced red bell pepper. Like the mashed peas, it too is served warm; it’s also drizzled with a sweet and spicy apricot barbeque glaze and sprinkled with melted cheddar and battered, fried onions. The corn mash is sweet and creamy, similar in flavor to the corn casserole you might enjoy at Thanksgiving. That’s offset by the salt in the onions and the surprising heat in the barbeque sauce — the sandwich would not be as memorable without that spicy kick. The menu also contains more expected sandwiches. The maple turkey sandwich ($8.75 with a side) starts with house-roasted turkey. The bread (your choice) is spread with maple mustard, and packed with mixed greens and yam crisps. The turkey is fresh and mild, and the yams provide a hint of sweetness and crunch. But it’s the mustard that pushes things
over the top. It’s both sweet and fiery; at times the heat travels into your nose and delivers a zing, like you would expect from good wasabi. The open melt roast beef sandwich ($9.50 with a side) comes with two slices of toasted bread, which is, as with all the sandwiches, just under an inch thick and spans about 7 inches. In the melt, each slice is folded in half at the diagonal, creating a pocket for the fillings. The warm roast beef is lightly topped with melted Havarti cheese and French fried onions, a smear of horseradish mustard, and a sprinkling of chopped greens and grated carrot to liven things up visually. Roast beef and horseradish is a classic combination, and are especially good when served warm, as they are here. Those having trouble deciding on just one sandwich can opt for the sandwich tasting ($8.95 with a choice of side), which lets you select two sandwich halves. (Add an extra 50 cents for open face or open melt sandwiches.) There are also salad and soup choices, plus an array of teas and an espresso bar. Open Face likes to be creative with its
drink offerings as well. Each week, a new steeped water ($2 for small; $2.25 for large) is featured, infused with the continues on page 16 rochestercitynewspaper.com CITY 11

There is plenty to admire in the band’s folksy blues, whether it’s the fiendishly deployed acoustic guitars, bluegrass-evoking banjos, or the demonically cool stand-up bass. They say idle hands are the devil’s workshop, but in this case, failure to witness The Devil Makes Three when they come to town is just the same.

Annie in the Water FRIDAY, APRIL 14 STICKY LIPS BBQ, 625 CULVER ROAD 9:30 P.M. | STICKYLIPSBBQ.COM; ANNIEINTHEWATER.COM [ ROCK ] Albany band Annie in the Water makes music that
seems to fit right into summer. The band’s blend of jam-band rock, blues, upbeat reggae and a touch of pop lends itself to warm weather and carefree evenings. Since starting in 2007, Annie in the Water has continuously toured the Northeast, and released its debut album, “Destination,” in 2011. In the seven years since founding members Brad Hester and Michael Lashomb began writing music together, the Annie in the Water sound has grown to embrace a world of influences — or as the band’s Facebook page says, “Annie in the Water started as an acoustic rock band … The only thing that stayed the same about their sound is that they still have an acoustic guitar.” — JAKE CLAPP

The Younger Gang FRIDAY, APRIL 18 ABILENE BAR AND LOUNGE, 153 LIBERTY POLE WAY 9:30 P.M. | $5 | ABILENEBARANDLOUNGE.COM [ BLUEGRASS ] Rochester’s The Younger Gang describes
itself as “based in the traditions of Old-Time Appalachia and classic Americana,” while seeking “new interpretations of old music.” The band combines the soulful lead vocals and a mix of traditional bluegrass instrumentation with electric additions that are not generally characteristic of a bluegrass band. It is through this addition of electrics, and its members’ wide range of musical backgrounds, that The Younger Gang makes music that both feels new and respectfully pays homage to its roots. — BY LEAH CREARY
Built to Spill WEDNESDAY, APRIL 23 CMAC, 3355 MARVIN SANDS DRIVE IN CANANDAIGUA 7 P.M. | $25-$39.50 | CMACEVENTS.COM [ ROCK ] After a prolific and well-received string of
albums through the 90’s, Built to Spill relaxed in the 2000's, taking its time with new material — the band’s last three full-lengths came out 2001, 2006, and 2009. But any discussion on indie rock will still undoubtedly include Built to Spill. The band’s 90’s material set high benchmarks with its ambitious, often ambling, resonating rock, which became highly influential for the Northwest sound and similar indie bands of the era, like Modest Mouse. And, though they’ve slowed down the pace, Built to Spill continues to push the bounds they helped establish. Death Cab for Cutie and The Head and the Heart will also perform. — JAKE CLAPP
NEW B KERS
When The Bad Plus burst onto the jazz scene in the early 2000’s there was some controversy among purists concerning the rock sensibility of this jazz trio. But that didn’t stop the group from becoming a sensation at festivals around the world. A decade and a half later, the genre-bending jazz piano trio is a genre unto itself. The latest incarnation to liven up my CD player is KROM, a power trio lead by Adam Kromelow on piano, with Raviv Markovitz on bass and Jason Burger, drums and percussion. Who says jazz can’t be fun? All three members of KROM are making their own way up the musical ladder, playing as sidemen with established artists. But when they take the reins, their sound is rhythmbased and as intriguing as it is engaging. Not that they are incapable of inspired solos; listen to Kromelow’s flights on “The Experiment.” And those who crave complexity can find more than enough in the Escher-like intricacy of “See With Your Eyes.” But it’s the distinctive sound of melodies pounded out with chords and deceptively simple phrases that stick to your brain that makes KROM a wonderful addition to the jazz canon. — RON NETSKY

Leslie Pintchik’s latest album begins nicely enough. “With You In Mind” not only showcases Pintchik’s formidable technique and nuanced style at the keyboard, it’s also an excellent original composition. But it’s the CD’s second cut that lets the listener know that Pintchik stands apart from the crowd. “I’d Turn Back if I Were You” is an odd-ball masterpiece worthy of Thelonious Monk on which Pintchik’s piano is set against the playful horns of Steve Wilson on saxophone and Ron Horton on trumpet. In addition to her quartet with Scott Hardy on bass, Michael Sarin on drums and percussionist Satoshi Takeishi, six of the album’s tracks feature horns — Hardy also wrote these superb horn arrangements. Another two tunes showcase just the quartet, including the album’s only cover, a sensitive take on Lerner and Loewe’s “I’ve Grown Accustomed To Her Face.” The album ends with a live trio track, Pintchik’s “There You Go,” and we’re back to that quirky style mentioned above. It’s another off-kilter classic. — RON NETSKY

Local rock band Maybird wil open for Holly Golightly & the Brokeoffs on Tuesday, April 22, at the Bug Jar. PHOTO PROVIDED
Riding the psychedelic plane Maybird W/ HOLLY GOLIGHTLY & THE BROKEOFFS, AND BUFFALO SEX CHANGE TUESDAY, APRIL 22 BUG JAR, 219 MONROE AVE. 9 P.M. | $8-$10 | BUGJAR.COM | MAYBIRD. BANDCAMP.COM [ FEATURE ] BY FRANK DE BLASE
Drop the needle and dig on Maybird and enjoy the trip. This relatively new Rochester outfit is a carefully constructed wash of singer-songwriter insight and poppsychedelia. It’s the sound of the beautiful and the weird sharing a slow dance — or a joint, perhaps. It’s romantic and it’s epic. Consequently, Maybird sounds like a band with no chronological home. You could conceivably see its music popping up in any of the last five or so decades to haunt a scene or screw up a genre’s self-worth. Springing from a prodigious pile of current and past projects, Maybird — guitarist Sam “Overhand Sam” Snyder, Josh Netsky on vocals and guitar, Adam Netsky on drums, bassist Mike Schuler, 14 CITY APRIL 16-22, 2014
and Kurt Johnson bringing in pedal steel, lap steel, and guitar — came together after Josh Netsky asked Johnson to cover for the Josh Netsky Band’s regular six-string slinger, Snyder. Snyder made the gig after all, but Johnson stuck around. “So on the gig we just decided to figure out how to make it work,” Snyder says. The result turned on a light bulb in Josh’s head. “It was great,” Josh says. “It worked out that way and it was just like, ‘Why not always have Kurt play?’” Before ultimately forming into Maybird, the band performed under the Josh Netsky Band, but kind of like a Josh Netsky Band Part II. “The songs that are on the first Maybird album [“Down & Under” released October 2013] were developed while we were still the Josh Netsky Band,” Josh says. “But they’ve changed quite a bit. So the Maybird entity is like a totally different thing from what the Josh Netsky Band was. The stuff we’re writing now is more a classic psychedelic rock sound, it’s very laid back.”
But Maybird isn’t trying; the band is easy-going — the band abides. “It’s just what’s happening,” Josh says. “I think we’re moving towards psychedelic rock, it’s partially because that’s what we feel best playing now. We have the best time playing those songs.” Snyder sheds some light on the music’s trippy allure and pull. “As we’ve been working the tunes, we’ve been getting further and further out into the psychedelic plane,” he says. But who puts on the brakes? How do they know when to stop? “Once the tune shows up,” Snyder says simply. “Lately we’ve been working on a lot of new songs that have been lending themselves to these far out landscapes.” Part of this trip’s destination falls on the shoulders of both guitarists. Johnson has dialed back his lap and pedal steel contributions in lieu of juggling guitar patterns and textures and riffs with Snyder. It’s now two lead guitars. And along with the sonic density comes energy and intensity.
“It’s going in an upbeat direction,” Josh says. “More of a guitar-driven direction.” However, according to Josh, the same things that bless the group and inspire them can sometimes be a bit of a curse. “The easiest thing is that it takes a matter of minutes to get ideas flowing,” he says. “The toughest thing is to get the ideas to stop flowing.” Before getting doused in idea-overload, Johnson says the nucleus of each tune has to be good. “I think Josh writes really great tunes,” he says. “The songs, first and foremost are good.” And the song’s influences, though solid, are from all over the map. The history these veteran scenesters sport — as members of bands like Thunder Body, Md Woods, Auld Lang Syne, My Plastic Sun, the Josh Netsky Band, Moho Collective, Poetry for Thieves, etc. — is staggering. “I think it’s safe to say that in the whole collaborative process we each bring in a lot of our own influences,” Snyder says. “So it’s not like there’s any one, clear cut thing. I don’t think I’ve ever worked with any other group of musicians that have such eclectic taste in music and somehow made it work.” But as with all eclectic derivatives in art, it doesn’t necessarily work for everyone. “I’ve had people come up to me who did not get it,” Johnson says. “Just did not get it. Some people are just very narrow in their field of listening and they don’t understand things outside of it.” Snyder enjoys confounding this type of listener. “I think that’s part of it too,” he says. “We want to push the listener, — ‘You haven’t heard this yet because we don’t strive to sound like anything else.’” “One of the first shows we played as Maybird was in a house in Boston in front of a bunch of people we didn’t know,” Josh adds. “Every song seemed to hit with everybody pretty well because we were crammed in a room together. However, sometimes when we play at a larger venue, our set has these vast jumps from pretty hard-hitting rock songs to very laid-back, lazier, delicate sounds. I’ve definitely seen crowds dwindle.” As Maybird reveals its music to itself as well as others, the band plans on spending more time in the studio, relying on its magic. “We’re going to spend less time writing in the studio and more time experimenting there,” Snyder says, even if this spelunking renders two facets of the band: a live Maybird and a studio Maybird. “There are some times that it’s perfect, Josh says. “But personally, I don’t like seeing a band and hear them sound just like a record.”

EXPERIMENTAL | JULIANNA BARWICK The music Julianna Barwick creates — through loops and samples of emotional instrumentation and reverberated vocal swells — is so remarkably lush and grand that it not just fills its projected space, but almost magnifies it. As seen on her latest album, 2013’s critically well-received “Nepenthe,” Barwick’s experimental, choral-esque delivery creates a surrounding wall of hypnotic sound that the listener can’t escape. The practice caused post-rock mainstays Sigur Ros to invite Barwick to open for its North American tour last fall, a prestigious opportunity for the Brooklyn-based musician. Julianna Barwick will perform with Vasillus and A Victory for Upfish on Saturday, April 19, 8 p.m. at Visual Studies Workshop, 31 Prince St. There is an $8 suggested donation. 315-0344; Juliannabarwick.com. — JAKE CLAPP

fresh flavors and colors of fruits and vegetables. Cucumber spinach water was the color of honeydew melons. The spinach flavors couldn’t be tasted, but the cool and clean flavor of cucumber came through. Beet ginger water was also refreshing. Its gingery top note gave way to the beet’s earthiness, and was beautifully magenta in color. You can also pick up a bottle of Moxie soda ($2). Moxie is little known outside of New England, and is especially popular in Maine, which named it the official soft drink of the state in 2005. In production since the late 1800’s, it’s a love-it-or-hate-it beverage. Though it has the syrupy feel and cool, almost minty flavor of root beer, it has a bitter, medicinal edge. (I fall into the hate-it camp, but if you haven’t tasted Moxie before, you should give it a go.) There are good dessert options near Open Face in the South Wedge. Cheesy Eddies is known for its cheesecake or carrot cake, and Hedonist serves artisan chocolates and ice cream. But you might want to give Open Face’s peanut butter chocolate chip cookie ($2.25) a try. This is a thick and hefty cookie made from scratch. The first bite is sandy and slightly crumbly. As you chew, the texture becomes creamy and smooth. The peanut butter flavor is rich and bit salty; it’s a nice counterpoint to the sweetness of the chocolate chips. It’s also gluten free, but doesn’t suffer from any of the faults of a typical GF baked good (dry, leaden, lacking structure). Open Face’s décor fits in with the South Wedge vibe: it is small, hip (arguably hipster), and thoughtfully crafted. Dark hardwood floors yield to sage green walls. Hammered metal squares form a chair rail against which wood chairs lean. There are only six tables, four of which seat only two people. Prominently featured in the space are shelves filled with glass jars, vials of teas waiting to be steeped, and vintage advertisements. It would feel more like an apothecary’s shop than a lunch spot, if not for the window peeking into the kitchen, revealing ocher yellow walls and shelving brimming with pots, pans, utensils, and spices. As Open Face is a small spot, if you head there during the lunch rush, expect to wait for a table and your food. It’s worth the wait.

ALTERNATIVE | DEER TICK When you consider the popularity and radio play The Lumineers have received, it’s hard to grasp how Deer Tick has not garnered the same attention. Add in the fact Deer Tick had several albums out before The Lumineers debuted and it’s downright confusing. The alternativerock quintet from Providence, R.I., molds rock ‘n’ roll, Americana and folk together to make simply eargasmic tunes. Lead singer John McCauley delivers with a great folk voice, one that sounds amazing and can be easily understood — Bob Dylan, I’m looking at you — and it gels well with the band’s melodious instrumentals. Deer Tick is infamous for hosting crazy Newport Folk Festival afterparties, so you can be sure these guys know how to put on a good show.

PUNK | MYSTIK MOTORCYCLES French band Mystik Motorcycles seems to love glam punk — if fashion is anything to go by. Lead singer/guitarist Rondelius Gordon sings in English while his bandmates get hyper, a la the dirt and glitter of the 70’s and 80’s music scenes. Established in 2001, Mystik Motorcycles is reminiscent of The New York Dolls at 45 RPM, with its own garage rock delivery. Tunes about burlesque girls (“Jiggly Tassels”), obnoxious blond groupies (“Platinum Blah Blah Blah”), and musically untalented bands (“Empathy”) blend bouncy melodies with high energy. The quartet’s North American tour kicks off in Montreal and includes Rochester among its three U.S. dates. Mystik Motorcycles performs with Televisionaries, Death Camp, and The Telltale Signs on Wednesday, April 23, 9 p.m. at The Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Ave. Tickets are $6-$8.

Haven Shea as Fate in the Shakespeare Players’ production of “The Winter’s Tale,” on stage at MuCCC through April 26. PHOTO COURTESY ROCHESTER COMMUNITY PLAYERS
A tale for all seasons “The Winter’s Tale” BY ROCHESTER COMMUNITY PLAYERS THROUGH APRIL 26 MUCCC, 142 ATLANTIC AVE. $9-$19 | MUCCC.ORG [ REVIEW ] BY DAVID RAYMOND
Part domestic tragedy, part raucous comedy, mostly improbable fairy tale, “The Winter’s Tale” is one of Shakespeare’s most intriguing and confounding works. Rochester Community Players’ production of the show, running until the end of this month, is a well-conceived take on a play seldom seen but definitely worth seeing. As “The Winter’s Tale” begins, Leontes, the King of Sicilia, is enlisting his wife, Hermione, to persuade his visitor and longtime friend Polixenes, the friendly King of Bohemia, to stay longer. Hermione is a virtuous wife, but when Leontes observes her in conversation with Polixenes, he is suddenly overwhelmed with jealousy and accuses him of fathering the child Hermione is carrying. His insistence that Hermione is unfaithful has terrible consequences: by the intermission, the court is in an uproar, his wife has been accused of treason and sentenced to death, their young son is
dead, and their newborn daughter is taken away by a courtier to be abandoned in Bohemia (bearing no resemblance to the real Bohemia). In true fairy-tale fashion, she is discovered and raised by a shepherd. Fast forward 17 years, and the girl, named Perdita, is still among the Bohemians and being wooed by Florizel, the disguised Prince of Bohemia. Without going into too much detail, suffice it to say that Perdita finds her true parentage, Leontes is forgiven after many years of penance, and a miracle or two ensues to provide a happy, and to some, not terribly convincing, ending. “The Winter’s Tale” does require a thorough suspension of disbelief from the audience — but as Shakespeare knew, that’s what theater is about. “The Winter’s Tale” is a complex play: its
plot deliberately defies logic, and while there is some thrilling dialogue and rhetoric in the court scenes, other passages are (to me at least) almost impenetrably dense and hard to follow. The changes in tone between the court and country sections of “A Winter’s Tale” (or if you like, the tragic and the comic sections) must be difficult for performers and directors to balance. The challenges start in the very first scene, which starts with a few minutes of courtly chit-chat but then turns
downright nasty as irrational jealousy grabs Leontes and won’t let go. As for the scenes in Bohemia, they are full of those Shakespearean rustic clowns whom — I may as well just be honest — I have never found all that funny. And Leontes’ redemption at the end of the play can seem sudden and unearned, although in this production it is quite moving. Director Virginia Monte’s concept is wintry from the beginning: the play is performed on an all-white set, with elegant white costumes for the Sicilian court. The second part brings bright ragtag costumes for the Bohemians. It’s a simple concept but it looks great in the small-ish MuCCC playing space. There is also brief but telling use of puppetry and shadows, as well as some subtle lighting effects. Monte turns Shakespeare’s character “Time” into a chorus of fates watching over the action, and occasionally taking part in it, adding three more characters to a frequently full stage of people. I’m not sure that this conceit is necessary, but the director works the three actresses into the action quite well. The large and able cast ranges from
seasoned Rochester Shakespeareans to first-timers. Those complicated speeches don’t trip off everyone’s tongue with equal ease, but the increasingly strange story is clearly presented. Leontes must be one of the more difficult Shakespearean parts to bring off, and James Heath is convincing as a holy terror in the first part and as a muchchastened man at the end. Abby DeVuyst is a dignified Hermione, and her impassioned speech during her trial for treason is one of the highlights of the show. (As Paulina, a court lady defending Hermione, Midge Marshall gets to jump on an even more venomous outburst to Leontes.) Danielle Lattiere’s Perdita is definitely her mother’s daughter, displaying the regal bearing one character mentions in the play. The smaller parts (and there are many parts in this play — most of the actors play two roles) are well taken by a few of those seasoned local actors. Tom Borhrer as the shepherd who discovers Perdita, Brad Craddock at Polixenes, and Roger Gans as the Sicilian courtier Camillo invest their every line with clarity and meaning. Kate Sherman makes an entertaining 180-degree turn from a regal Sicilian courtier in Part I to a wild Bohemian wench in Part II. Mark Casey gives a pleasantly silly fake-European air to one of those rustic clowns, while accompanying himself on the concertina and mandolin; he also wrote the show’s pretty, sometimes moody incidental music.

ART | SAGEFEST 8
One of life’s beauties is the way in which different people interpret the things around them. What one person may see in one light another might see completely different. That’s one of the wonders of art and the artists who create. On Thursday, April 17, Sage Art Center will be hosting SageFest 8, a celebration of art that is usually not seen in galleries and institutions. This year’s event focuses on art created outside of the “art world” and examines the influence it has in the community. Sagefest will kick off with local Wall Therapy artist Thievin’ Stephen, who creates murals focused on the world we live in and the truth and beauty in it. Work will also been shown by senior art major Nina Korn, whose work includes wooden signs in an attempt to speak out and bring attention to the issues in Sumatra. In addition, art minor Ben Goulet will be screen printing SageFest 8 t-shirts during the event. SageFest 8 will take place at the Sage Art Center at University of Rochester, 240 Wallis Hall, from 5-8 p.m. Admission is free.

Dance Events COMEDY | TIM MEADOWS
To many of us who were still in school when “Mean Girls” hit the screen, Tim Meadows will always be known as Mr. Duvall, one of our favorite high school principals. But before his role in the film, Meadows spent almost 10 years on the set of SNL, holding the record for the second longest running cast member. Meadows was known originally for spoofing famous personalities like O.J. Simpson, Tiger Woods, and Oprah Winfrey, until the show created an original character of his own, Leon Phelps, “The Ladies’ Man.” The sketch and character were then adapted into a film in 2000, which followed Phelps’ attempts to find love. Meadows has appeared in other feature films including “Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story,” “Grown Ups,” and “Semi-Pro.” Meadows will perform on Thursday-Sunday, April 17-19 at The Comedy Club, 2235 Empire Blvd in Webster. Show times are Thursday at 7:30 p.m. and Friday and Saturday 7:30 & 10 p.m. Tickets range from $15-$25. For tickets and more information, visit Thecomedyclub.us or call 671-9080. — BY TAYLOR WHITE

Crass cuts “Dirty Dozen: The Outlaw Printmakers” THROUGH MAY 11 ROCHESTER CONTEMPORARY ART CENTER, 137 EAST AVENUE 461-2222, ROCHESTERCONTEMPORARY.ORG WEDNESDAY-SUNDAY, 1-5 P.M.; FRIDAY, 1-10 P.M. | $1; FREE TO MEMBERS [ REVIEW ] BY REBECCA RAFFERTY
Though traditional methods of printmaking are arguably outdated forms of creating and massproducing images, the medium has remained a fresh art form through subject matter and use, and is found everywhere from cottage-industry t-shirt printing, to concert posters, to fine art editions. The current exhibition at Rochester Contemporary Art Center brings together the diverse work of several members of The Outlaw Printmakers, a collective of artists and savvy entrepreneurs who blend incredible skill at traditional techniques with of-the-moment sensibilities and subject matter. The collective’s name is meant to reflect attitudes of the printmakers involved and their non-academic approach to prints, says Rochester Contemporary Executive Director, Bleu Cease. The group itself represents a variety of traditional printmaking techniques and ranges in subject matter, from Bill Fick’s oversize linocuts of 24 CITY APRIL 16-22, 2014
grotesque faces and skulls, to the bright abstract forms and graphic figures of Carlos Hernandez’s massive serigraph and monotype prints. Also, look to Ryan O’Malley’s “Totem” series of lasercut stencils layered with line-heavy screen prints, which form faces with a variety of symmetrically-mirrored features and objects. To Cease, the collective provides a model for students and young artists of how creatives can eke out an intrepid living through a variety of entrepreneurial tactics. Many of these artists are constantly on the road, teach workshops and participating in print fairs, or bringing their wares on tour with bands such as The National. Some members take on commercial or commissioned work in addition to pursuing their own artistic interests. Work by members of the Outlaw Printmakers can be found in important collections, including that of the Whitney Museum of American Art. The diminutive and clean relief prints of printmaker, illustrator, and painter Artemio Rodríguez echoes the style of European Medieval woodcut printers and Mexican print artists. The small, black ink images reveal a world of oppressive devils running us into financial and moral bankruptcy, and the dystopian reality found around the corner from the American Dream. Similar sentiments are found in woodcut and silkscreen prints by Texas-based Julia Curran, the youngest member of The Outlaw Printmakers.
In her work, Curran derides Western society’s circus of mindless consumption, video-game warfare, grinning corruption, institutionalized oppression, and our worship of hypermasculinity in culture. Humans are depicted as weapon-adorned, pampered-idol/sacrificial-cow hybrids, and the sick, sad insanity of it all rushes at the viewer from the chaotic, crass, colorful messes of such works as “Weapons of Mass Consumption” and “Party Boy Apocalypse.” The three stunning prints by Mike Houston of the Brooklyn-based Cannonball Press were each created by printing massive woodcuts on 4- by 8-foot plywood onto sheets of canvas. Each of the three works is a frenetic scene of dizzyingly crisp linework depicting an 80’s punk mosh pit, deadly dames on a tarot card, and the scene of a bone-picking, finger-licking feast. In addition to the crispy silkscreen prints of wolves, snakes, and horned gods included in this show, Brooklyn-based artist Dennis McNett creates installations, modern-culturerejecting performance pieces, sculptures, wood carvings, and traditional relief prints. McNett draws influence from the imagery of early 80’s skateboard and punk rock music scenes, and the feral folklore from the Norwegian mythos resonates powerfully with him as well. His commissioned projects range from designs for Anti-Hero skateboards, to shoes for Vans, to window displays for Barneys, New York.
Mississippi-based Sean Starwars pulls from pop culture and American advertising imagery for his rough and garish woodcut-on-canvas prints, building irreverent and satirical narratives such as the bun-less hot dogs being forced from paradise in “The Expulsion,” or the showcased variety of firearms in “Celebrate Diversity.” Fueled by his open and enthusiastic penchant for Mountain Dew, and driven by the knowledge that he’ll create a finite number of prints in his lifetime, Starwars challenged himself to create one woodcut per week in 2011, then upped the stakes the following year to one woodcut per day. The work of Outlaw Printmakers leader, Tom Huck, is as much an adolescent giggle-fest as it is an epically rendered set of vignettes into the realm of imagination and memory. In particular, the memories captured in his newest work are of Huck’s first non-maternal mammary sighting, the hilarious bewilderment of stumbling upon the recreational evidence that our parents are sexual creatures, and the destructive tendencies of naughty-by-nature human pups. The Missouri-based printmaker is best known for his large-scale woodcuts with clean, intricate crosshatching reminiscent of one of his influences, Albrecht Dürer. This exhibition includes the premiere of Huck’s new monumental piece, “The Tommy Peepers,” a 5- by 10-foot woodcut triptych that was nearly four years in the making. Each of the three panels is action-packed, with enough depth and detail to discover several previously-unnoticed, bawdy touches with each new study. According to Cease, Huck calls his subject matter “rural satire,” and the prints “pick up on these stories from his hometown and growing up, such as the time he saw a woman dive into a pool and she lost her bathing suit.” Here, the central panel reimagines the lady surrounded by a swarm of fascinated adolescent boys and raunchy references galore. Hearts and eyes and sperm adorn the decoratively cut edges of the massive prints, like a valentine to a moment in time. The Print Club of Rochester — an organization devoted to fine art printmaking since 1934 — brought Tom Huck into town for a workshop in 2013, and worked with Rochester Contemporary and collectors Roz and John Goldman to pull together this exhibition. On display in the art center’s LAB space is “Surveying Print: 84 Years of Prints from the Print Club of Rochester,” showcasing a range of works by such artists as Robert Marx, Beaubais Lyons, and Jerome Witkin. The Rochester Print Club will hold a Print-a-Fair event at Rochester Contemporary on Friday, May 2, 6-10 p.m., featuring work by member artists.

SPECIAL EVENT | RECORD STORE DAY
There’s just something different about independent record stores. The intimate spaces, the yet undiscovered new music blasting, and the vinyl-pushing employees behind the counter bring up nostalgia of a time not driven by nationwide chain stores. Record Store Day was created in 2007 by record store owners and employees to celebrate and spread the word about the unique culture surrounding over 1,000 independently owned record stores around the globe — including in Rochester. On Saturday, April 19, record stores around the city will host special events celebrating the day — deals on exclusive vinyl, food trucks at some locations, and even a few bands. Check your local record store for what it’ll offer for the day. The event will take place on Saturday during store hours. Attendance is free. For more information on the event, visit Recordstoreday.com or call your shop down the street. — BY TAYLOR WHITE Food served at 1 p.m $14.95 buffet 256-1000. 140alex.com.

As he has demonstrated in a number of movies, Kevin Costner is the best athlete in Hollywood. Unlike, say, Gary Cooper in “Pride of the Yankees,” Anthony Perkins in “Fear Strikes Out,” or Robert De Niro in “Bang the Drum Slowly,” Costner played a most credible brand of baseball in “Field of Dreams,” “For Love of the Game,” and most notably, “Bull Durham.” He also looked like a real golfer in “Tin Cup,” and

showed off a wicked serve in a tennis match in the relatively obscure “Revenge.” Older now, like Brad Pitt in “Moneyball,” Costner has moved from the playing field to the front office in the football film “Draft Day.” Costner plays Sonny Weaver Jr., the general manager of the Cleveland Browns, a club almost as unsuccessful as the Buffalo Bills, on the day when all the teams announce their draft picks, hoping to harvest a rich bounty from the crop of college players. In addition to the stress involved in making the right picks for his team, Sonny finds himself under emotional attack from a number of sources. His father, a legendary, beloved Browns coach, whom Sonny himself fired, died the week before this important day; his girlfriend, Ali (Jennifer Garner), the team’s number cruncher, tells him she’s pregnant; and both the owner, Anthony Molina (Frank Langella), who threatens to fire him, and the current coach (Denis Leary), who detests him, pressure him to choose different players as their

number one pick. On top of all that, the usual sports radio blowhards instruct him in strategy and whip up frenzy among the devoted fans. Facing all of these challenges, Sonny spends the 12 hours of the day wheeling and dealing with GMs all over the country, juggling phone calls, placating players and agents, arguing with his staff, and suffering the insults and scorn of the experts on ESPN. Just about everyone, including his mother (Ellen Burstyn), believes Sonny committed a colossal blunder in trading away important future picks for the best player in the country, a quarterback named Bo Callahan (Josh Pence). Aside from the sequences showing Callahan’s smug confidence, the movie puts attention on two other players: a defensive back named Vontae Mack (Chadwick Boseman) and running back Ray Jennings (Arian Foster). The presence of those individuals introduces one of Sonny’s overriding concerns, the question of character, which emerges as the most important influence on his choices. The movie proceeds with the pace of a thriller, covering a multitude of movements and people through the 12 hours of Sonny’s decision making and horse trading. Director Ivan Reitman constantly intercuts between Sonny’s actions and the great many people involved in the business of operating an NFL team. It often employs a split screen — sometimes even four panels — to show the simultaneity of the process — including clips of the players in

Can’t get no satisfaction “Nymphomaniac: Volume I” (NR), DIRECTED BY LARS VON TRIER NOW PLAYING AT THE LITTLE THEATRE [ REVIEW ] BY ADAM LUBITOW
college games, and the verbal ballet of dealing and swapping players, with everyone jockeying for an edge in the complicated negotiations. In the midst of all this, against the backgrounds of alternately cheering or booing fans, a Greek chorus of commentators expresses their amused astonishment at Sonny’s decisions. Chris Berman, Mel Kiper, Jon Gruden and other wellknown personalities, playing themselves quite convincingly, pass a constellation of judgments on Sonny’s actions. Their presence, along with the appearance of NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell playing himself not quite so skillfully, lends a sense of immediacy and an almost documentary authenticity to “Draft Day.” Structuring the movie through the device of the 12-hour schedule provides a solid framework for the action and, as the clock ticks away, builds a nicely escalating tension. The shifts from Sonny’s headquarters in Cleveland to the various offices of the other teams, — each announced through handsome establishing shots of stadiums in Seattle, Houston, Kansas City, Buffalo, etc. — provide a visual dynamic to counteract what could have descended into a series of static visuals of a lot of people in offices. Well crafted, well-acted, and deftly paced, “Draft Day” provides a convincing insight into the ways NFL teams operate, the task of a general manager, and the excitement of its title subject. It should appeal to many audiences, football fans or not, and might even win followers for the Browns.
“Nymphomaniac: Volume I,” the latest film from Danish filmmaker and allaround provocateur Lars von Trier, sets out to document the lengthy and varied sexual history of one particularly insatiable woman. Though the film originally made its festival debut early this year in a five-anda-half hour director’s cut, the decision was made to release a slightly edited version in the U.S. as two separate feature-length films totaling four hours. Like much of what von Trier does, the end result is deeply personal, sometimes inscrutable, but never less than fascinating. However, the choice to split the film into two parts leaves me with the impossibly difficult task of reviewing only the first half of a complete work (Volume II opens at the Little Theatre on Friday, April 18 —look for a review later this week online at Rochestercitynewspaper.com). And I admit that it’s entirely possible that Volume II will change the context of Volume I. Like nearly all of von Trier’s films, the story’s protagonist is a damaged young

woman desperately searching for some sort of fulfilment — whether that be emotional, intellectual, sexual, or some combination of the three. In this case, the woman’s name is Joe (played by Charlotte Gainsbourg and in flashbacks by actress Stacy Martin), and as the film opens, she’s lying alone in an alley, bruised and bloodied. She’s found by a curious stranger named Seligman (Stellan Skarsgård), and while she initially refuses his offer to call an ambulance, she does agree to accompany him back to his apartment for some tea. Once there, she begins explaining to him how she came to be in this situation, telling a story of promiscuity from adolescence through early adulthood. Throughout her tale, Seligman frequently interjects to ask questions, attempting to understand Joe’s behavior. An academic by nature, he tries to assign intellectual significance to her proclivities, comparing her actions, in turn, to fly fishing, music theory, and the Fibonacci sequence. Clearly depressed and consumed by a deep loneliness, Joe combats these feelings with an endless parade of new sexual partners: “Fill all my holes,” she implores to one in a particularly unsubtle moment. The only companion who makes a repeat appearance is a young man named Jerôme (Shia LaBeouf ), whom Joe reconnects with at various points throughout her life. Interestingly, even though Joe is filled with self-loathing, telling Seligman that she is a bad person who has “consciously used and hurt others for the sake of my own satisfaction,” von Trier never seems to judge her. More surprising is how funny the film often is, and von Trier manages to straddle a variety of tones, from practically slapstick comedy to harrowing drama as it moves through each of Joe’s sexual episodes. Perhaps the best of these segments features
Uma Thurman as the scorned wife of one of Joe’s lovers, who barges into the girl’s apartment with children in tow asking if she may show them “the whoring bed.” As you may expect, the film is extremely explicit. It’s chock full of sex, but is never exactly erotic. I should note here that the end credits contain a disclaimer explaining that none of the professional actors had penetrative sex, and that the effect was achieved through the use of body doubles and cinematic trickery. Performances in the film run the gamut: Gainsbourg and Skarsgård are great, and their scenes together have a crackling energy. Stacy Martin’s performance sometimes feels blank, but that’s at least partially intentional and in keeping with her character’s empty emotional state, while LaBeouf is fine, but adopts an accent that I’d call “muddled,” if I wanted to be especially kind. Some reviewers have noted that Seligman’s attempts to intellectually analyze Joe functions as a thinly veiled metaphor for the relationship between artist and critic. Taken as such, the film can easily be interpreted as autobiographical, documenting not von Trier’s sexual history but rather his artistic one. As previously stated, “Nymphomaniac: Volume I” is just one half of a larger work, so it’s difficult to truly assess it without seeing where the film is headed. The story even ends on something of a cliffhanger, with Joe having once again found her way back to Jerôme, only to discover, once they have sex, that she’s suddenly lost all physical sensation of sexual pleasure. Judging from the snippets of scenes from “Volume II” which play over the end titles, it appears that Joe is headed into significantly darker and more dangerous situations. I’m anxious to see the second half if for no other reason than to achieve the gratification her story is ultimately building toward.

Brilliant BarrowsDesigned Beauty 240 Cobbs Hill Drive Nestled at the base of one of our pinnacle hills, the Cobbs Hill Neighborhood serves as a unique study in the development of the streetcar suburbs that surround the inner city. The picturesque vistas of curving streets are combined with the tighter city lots and a formal divided boulevard. All of this within close proximity to Cobbs Hill Park, East Avenue, and Park Avenue. Not surprisingly, this diversity of neighborhood planning, impressive topography, and its ideal location attracted the plethora of unique architect designed houses seen throughout the neighborhood. One architect in particular, C. Storrs Barrows, made a notable impact on the neighborhood, designing dozens of homes, including one for himself. The home at 240 Cobbs Hill Drive was built around 1926 on what was then called Bengal Terrace for mathematician Fred Altman and his wife Eileen, a school teacher. Although more modest than some of the larger homes along the street, architect Barrows infused the design with a thoroughly unique English character. The distinctive half-timbering and stucco pair with the plentiful and diversely sized steel casement windows; all nestled within meticulously landscaped grounds make for a thoroughly English Tudor Revival home. Passing underneath the elaborately carved entry canopy, a heavy cypress wood door enhanced by massive strap hinges greets you. The tiled vestibule with its distinctive arch topped windows, wrought iron lantern, and archway to the living room makes quite the impression. The living room exemplifies Barrows’ unique sense of style with a shallow beamed ceiling and large fireplace embellished
with carved wood mantel and decorative brick surround. Arched openings lead to the kitchen, dining room, and library. The library addition, which is reached through a pair of leaded glass doors, is a pleasing lightfilled space with plentiful storage for books. The dining room with its large arched topped windows, gleaming oak floors, and original floral slag glass chandelier provides a stunning venue for entertaining. Pulling the forged iron latch—found throughout the house—on the large gumwood door leads you to the large kitchen, which features plentiful windows and counter space along with stunning original leaded glass cabinetry from what may have been the butler’s pantry. Through another large gumwood door with decorative leaded glass the basement boasts ample storage space, an original wood paneled rec room complete with fireplace, one of the house’s two powder rooms, and the one car garage. Upstairs features three generous bedrooms, the smallest of which possesses a built-in armoire. The light-filled bathroom pleases with its black and white hexagonal tile, beadboard wainscot, and built-in linen closet. The seeming grandeur of the modest 2,160 square feet of this stunning Tudor Revival is testament to the skill of its architect. Listed by Michele Collichio of Collichio Builders Inc., make this home yours for $234,900.

Fun [ NEWS OF THE WEIRD ] BY CHUCK SHEPHERD
Noise Is Golden
The Formula One circuit is generally thought to attract fans as a showcase of motorcar technology and racing skill, but organizers of the Australian Grand Prix (the first of the 19 races on the annual circuit) threatened a lawsuit in March against Formula One management because the races should also be showcases of noise. Formula One has softened cars’ power this year in order to make breakthrough achievements in fuel efficiency, but that also tamped down Formula One’s “trademark ear-shattering roar,” according to a Business Insider report. Fans are less likely to buy tickets, the organizers fear, if they lose the deafening, 100-decibel vroom that is a “visceral element of the fan experience.”
The Championship Brackets
— Amelia Boomker, 36, of Bolingbrook, Ill., celebrated her acceptance into the Guinness Book of World Records in March, recognized for donating more than 127 gallons of her own breast milk to critically needy babies in the Midwest. The donations came on top of supplying breast milk for her own four sons, three of whom were born during the 2008-2013 period in which she pumped out her excess for the Indiana Mothers’ Milk Bank. — Most Commandments Violated: James Chatten, 46, pleaded guilty in January to several Commandment violations stemming from a July incident at the Christian Horizons church in Peterborough, Ontario. Chatten brought a prostitute inside the church, for sex, after hours, and stole money to pay her from a church drawer, then lied to police about being forced to raid the drawer.
— Prodigious Criminality: (1) John Bidmead, 65, was convicted in November at Britain’s Exeter Crown Court of possession of child pornography images that totaled, according to police count, 600,000 files -- a low number because detectives said they got tired of counting and that the final number was easily over a million. The prosecutor called it “certainly the largest find in this part of the world.” (2) Jason Bourcier, 33, reached a deal with the Virginia Department of Transportation in November to eventually pay down the $200,000 in highway tolls he had ignored for more than three years. He told a judge that, originally, a friend had told him that traveling the Dulles Toll Road to Washington, D.C., was free if the toll collectors had gone home for the evening (not true). (Bourcier told the judge he is now working as a “financial consultant” -- surely after rehabilitating his attention to detail.)
Fine Points of the Law
In some cultures, and now in Florida, apparently, the act of urination carries no special modesty protection. A judge ruled in March that video of Justin Bieber expelling for a urine test following his January drag-racing arrest in Miami Beach was a “public record” and had to be released to the press under Florida law. (A perhaps overly generous black box was edited into the video to make it somewhat less explicit.) In the video, only one officer is present, observing, based on protocol that respects the suspect’s “privacy” -- though the Florida judge in essence invited the entire world to watch Bieber urinate, as the video quickly made the Internet.
[ LAST WEEK’S SOLUTION ON PAGE 35 ]
[ LOVESCOPE ] BY EUGENIA LAST ARIES (March 21-April 19): Moving too quickly when it comes to romance will lead to a situation that can be difficult to reverse. You are likely to lose interest fast, so bide your time and let friendships grow before you confess your feelings, intentions and undying love for someone. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You’ll have a very strong attraction to someone you meet this week. Getting involved in a cause, fundraising or work-related event that will bring you in contact with people you have done business with in the past will be a breeding ground for intimacy.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Step up the physical involvement at the gym or take on a project that deals with interesting people and you will find someone special. Don’t feel you have to spend money or offer more than you can to make a good impression. Your charm will be all that’s required. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Proceed with caution. You may be mesmerized by someone you meet, but chances are very good you will be dealing with a user looking to take advantage of you mentally, emotionally, physically or financially. Keep your guard up, and you’ll avoid an uncomfortable situation.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Get involved in activities. Travel and trying new things will attract attention and unusual partners, but don’t be too eager to share what you have. Start slow and get to know if the fit is good before unleashing your generosity and love prematurely. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Networking functions will lead to a love interest. You’ll be drawn to someone very unique and different than you. Take the time to share your traditions and lifestyles before you make plans to meet each other’s families. Stability comes from preparation, strategy and wellthought out plans.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Make sure your motives are right when it comes to love. Being with someone for the wrong reason or attracting someone who has ulterior motives is likely to end up being a waste of time. Size up your situation, and if it doesn’t feel right, move on. SCORPIO (Oct 23-Nov. 21): Pull out all the stops. If you meet someone you fancy, do everything in your power to seal the deal. Love is on the rise, and spending time with someone who makes you feel intimately comfortable should be taken to the next level. Make a commitment. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21):
You’ve got all the moves and will attract plenty of interest when it comes to love, but before you move too quickly, look closely at the pros and cons. Deception and disillusionment prevail, making it likely that whomever you hook up with may be hiding something. CAPRICORN (Dec 22-Jan. 19): Don’t reveal too much information. Sit back and let potential partners come to you. Don’t hesitate to do a background check if someone appears to have the perfect life. Stick to people who share your traditions, beliefs and lifestyle. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Don’t let someone from your
past mislead you. Engage in activities that will help you expand your circle of friends. Avoid anyone showing possessive qualities or who is too persistent. Personal freedom is not something you should give up easily. You are likely to have a change of heart. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Participation will lead to interesting connections. Get involved in a cultural event or political or humanitarian fundraiser, and you’ll be surprised at the number of individuals who grab your attention. Enjoy the experience, but make sure the choices you make are based on mental and physical attraction.
