Busing the kids The big local news last week was this: Thanks to a series of fights at the downtown transit center, the Rochester-Genesee Regional Transportation Authority won’t renew its contract with the city school district to bus students to and from school. The RTS announcement was followed, predictably, by finger pointing: at RTS officials, who are accused of pulling the plug abruptly; at the school district, for unleashing violent students on the public; at RTS and the district for not being able to work this out amicably; at the mayor (who has zero control over the transit service and the school district); and, of course, at the students and their parents. So now we have another tense deliberation between two public institutions. And by ostracizing the students, we’ve reinforced the slanderous public perception that all city students are wild, violent thugs. Doesn’t anybody want to talk about the fights and why they’re happening? (Doesn’t anybody see the connection between the transit center fights and the violence in the Freddie Gray protests in Baltimore? Between the transit center fights, the Baltimore violence, and the Rochester riots of 1964?) These fights aren’t new. Pre-transit center, students were fighting at the Liberty Pole and elsewhere downtown. In a shopping mall. In a movie theater. There was a highly publicized close-down of Seabreeze amusement park when law-enforcement officials got wind of a fight planned there. And there continue to be fights in schools. And in neighborhoods. There aren’t fights every day at the transit center, any more than there are fights every day in city schools and neighborhoods. But there are fights. And there is Grade A violence, including the recent stabbing of one student by another in the transit center. Clearly something has to be done to insure safe public transportation – for students and non-students. And I’ll bet that RTS and the school district will renew talks and find a way out of this immediate problem. But I also bet that then most of the community will forget about it. And I bet that the fights will just take place somewhere else. Because to come up with a real solution to the fights, we have to address their roots – and the roots of the seemingly almost daily shootings in Rochester’s inner-city neighborhoods. And nobody wants to do that. The school district isn’t causing the fights. RGRTA isn’t causing the fights. The mayor isn’t causing the fights. We can point fingers at the students and their families, and obviously teenagers shouldn’t fight, shouldn’t stab people, shouldn’t shoot people. But at
To come up with a real solution to the fights, we have to address their roots. And nobody wants to do that.” what point do we stop pretending that this has nothing to do with poverty? The evidence is clear: Decades of concentrated poverty is having a profound effect on families who have lived in it for generations. A neighborhood of high poverty and frequent violence has an effect on residents’ emotional health. It has an effect on their physical health. It has an effect on their education, on their job prospects. (Among the latest evidence: “The stress of growing up poor can hurt a child’s brain development starting before birth,” the journal Nature reported last week, citing a study by a team led by neuroscientists at Columbia University and Children’s Hospital in Los Angeles.) Add destructive public policies in criminal justice, education, housing, wages…. Layer it all with racism…. In the New York Times on Sunday, actor Sonja Sohn of “The Wire,” who worked with Baltimore youth for five years, wrote of “a hopelessness on the streets of Baltimore that ran so deep that it seemed to have killed the spirit of the people.” How many more studies and focus groups and task forces and calls to action do we need? We are appalled when we hear about a teacher being assaulted in school, a bystander waiting for a bus knocked to the ground and injured when a fight breaks out at the transit center. Are we appalled enough at the conditions breeding that violence that we’ll do something about it? rochestercitynewspaper.com

Andrew Meloni dies
Longtime Monroe County Sheriff Andrew Meloni died at age 84. Meloni was well-respected within the community for his humor and professionalism. A highlight of Meloni’s career was the resolution of the Kali Ann Poulton case. The 4-year-old disappeared in 1994. The recovery of her body in 2010 led to the arrest of a neighbor, Mark John Christie.
Body camera survey
Rochester City Council members want your opinion on police body cameras. A web survey is available at surveymonkey.com/r/rochesterbodycameras and Council members are attending neighborhood meetings so residents can fill out the survey in person. A survey will be mailed to you if you call 428-7538. Mayor Lovely Warren said late last year that the Rochester Police Department would indeed get body cameras.
Lease a bus shelter
City Hall is soliciting proposals to reuse five former bus shelters on Main Street. The bus stops, which are between the Genesee River and
Stillson Street, were discontinued after the transit center opened late last year. Ideas include small businesses, sidewalk cafes, and information kiosks. The deadline to submit proposals to the city is June 26.
Competition for the Southern Tier Governor Andrew Cuomo says that $10 million will be available for a clean energy competition in the Southern Tier, and that the state will provide another $10 million toward support services for the region’s clean energy market. The competition is geared toward early-stage clean energy startups, with prizes ranging from $100,000 to $1 million, according to a press release.
Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos, a Republican, is the latest state elected official arrested on corruption charges. Skelos is accused of taking actions favorable to two companies, as long as the companies made payments to his son, Adam Skelos, reports the New York Times. Federal prosecutors charged Dean and Adam Skelos with conspiracy, extortion, wire fraud, and soliciting bribes, the Times says.

Genesee Valley Park plan seeks balance How to meet the growing demand for recreational activities in Genesee Valley Park while preserving the park’s historic character and sweeping river views is a major question for city planners as they plot the park’s future. The city’s departments of Environmental Services and Recreation and Youth Services, along with the Genesee Waterways Center, are developing a master plan to guide the growth of the park area on the west side of the river over the next 20 to 30 years. The plan is funded by a $120,000 state grant.
For all the smiles she’s given to you... It’s just what moms do. Remind the special woman in your life she’s loved bloom after bloom Hanging Baskets
An almost-final version of the plan will be presented at a public meeting at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, May 6, at the Genesee Waterways Center, 149 Elmwood Avenue, in the park. The completed plan will be submitted for state approval sometime in June. “They’ve done a phenomenal job,” says Caitlin Meives, preservation planner with the Landmark Society. “There’s a whole lot of activities, infrastructure, and interests to balance in this important park and they’ve come up with, I think, a really excellent roadmap for the future that balances those needs.”
Genesee Valley, one of three original parks in Rochester’s park system, was designed by noted landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted. The total park is approximately 655 acres and is divided by the Genesee River. The park is owned by the City of Rochester, but the 502-acre east side is maintained by Monroe County. The west side, which is about 150 acres, is managed and maintained by the city. The master plan is the first-ever comprehensive evaluation of the park’s west side, says Jeffery Mroczek, project continues on page 10

“That wetland there is a pretty high priority area. That whole habitat area of Braddock Bay is one of the few of its type on Lake Ontario. It’s worth preserving.” [ GEORGE THOMAS, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF THE CENTER FOR ENVIRONMENTAL INITIATIVES ]
ENVIRONMENT | BY JEREMY MOULE
Final Braddock Bay designs ready The US Army Corps of Engineers has released proposed designs for a project intended to restore the Braddock Bay wetlands. The agency will hold a public meeting on the designs at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, May 7, at Greece Town Hall, 1 Vince Tofany Boulevard. Corps representatives will explain the plan and what happens next. And members of the public will be able to submit written comments. Braddock Bay is an important, stateowned wetland area along the Lake Ontario coast in Greece; it’s one of few Lake Ontario coastal wetlands larger than 100 acres. But it faces twin threats which are harming the wetland’s suitability as habitat for species including black tern, northern pike, and muskrat. The threats are erosion from waves coming in off the lake and overgrowth of an invasive cattail variety. “That wetland there is a pretty high priority area,” says George Thomas, executive director of Center for Environmental Initiatives. “That whole habitat area of Braddock Bay is one of the few of its type on Lake Ontario. It’s worth preserving.” To address the erosion, the Corps plans to build an artificial barrier beach at the mouth of the bay. It’ll be made out of large limestone boulders, with the spaces between
the boulders filled with sand from the bay and plants, so that the barrier blends in with the environment, says Josh Unghire, a Corps restoration ecologist and planner on the Braddock Bay project. The barrier should also prevent sand from Braddock Bay.

The food trucks are out! Yippee! Collect $10, and a case of heartburn.

My Favorite Toy Box in Fairport partnered with the specialty board game manufacturer Late for the Sky in Cincinnati to create and produce Roc-Opoly. Meghan Ludwig, co-owner of My Favorite Toy Box says that she’d like all of Rochester’s iconic names and landmarks to be represented on the game board, including Kodak, Wegmans, and the Eastman House. “There’s a lot of rich history in Rochester,” she says. “It’ll be a collector’s piece.” Ludwig says that the game will likely sell for $29.95 at the Fairport store or on the company’s website, myfavoritetoybox.com. The plan is a limited run of 1,500 games, Ludwig says. But if the demand is high, she says, they might make more. For more information: (888) 286-8510.
EDUCATION | BY TIM LOUIS MACALUSO
Revised law empowers school supers A revision to the state education law concerning failing schools could give Rochester schools Superintendent Bolgen Vargas substantially more authority at a time when he’s at serious odds with the school board over management. Though it’s still unclear, the law appears to give Vargas the ability to make sweeping decisions to improve failing schools, including overriding any school board objections to his plans. A big question is whether the revised law will impact University of Rochester’s pending takeover of East High School. The State Education Department approved the UR takeover well before this change. Could the changed law overrule that decision? And could or would Vargas intervene at East? The revised law, which is barely a month old, has many school officials in Rochester and around the state scurrying for clarification about exactly what legislators and Governor Andrew Cuomo agreed to in the last round of budget negotiations. Under the law, superintendents will be made “receivers” of schools deemed by the state to be failing or persistently failing — essentially giving superintendents caretaking responsibilities. That revelation concerns many school boards and union leaders. And it raises a number of questions involving the Rochester City School District. For example: at a time of heightened tension between Vargas and the city school board, what does this shift of power in Vargas’s direction mean? What role will school board members — who are locally elected officials — play in turning around failing schools? About a month ago, Vargas filed a notice of claim against the Rochester school board — a precursor to a potential lawsuit over what Vargas characterizes as board overreach and a lack of clarity about the roles and responsibilities of the board and the superintendent. The clarity everyone is seeking regarding the revised state law probably won’t come for several months when the SED issues “regulations” — what officials describe as the step-by-step manual for implementing the law. Still, the state’s latest rendition of intervention could set the stage for meaningful change in school districts such as Rochester where sustained and consistent improvements in student performance have been elusive. Or it could lead to more managerial problems and further declines in enrollment. 6 CITY

Wegmans plan is bad for Probert Street
I am a Probert Street resident. I attended the public information meeting on April 22 at the East Avenue Wegmans store, which was held to explain the plan for the proposed Wegmans parking lot revision and the reasoning behind it. I can’t get comfortable with the solution that is proposed by the very same cast that brought us the original flawed design of the lot. I don’t understand how opening up a portal on Probert Street will relieve the cutthrough traffic which planners say is the cause of congestion in the Wegmans lot. The cause of the congestion is simply that the East Avenue store has a customer volume exceeding that of the Pittsford Plaza store, with a fraction of the Pittsford Plaza parking space. (Note: A Wegmans spokesperson says that Pittsford has more parking because all of Pittsford’s customers drive. East Avenue, however, gets a lot of foot traffic, she says.) Clearly, Wegmans designers and City of Rochester planners have put 10 or 12 pounds of traffic volume into an eight-pound bag and are now attempting to implement an iffy solution to the predictable congestion at the expense of Probert Street residents. This won’t fly with me. I won’t gladly swallow the bitter pill of degrading the quality of our life on our street in service of another bit of hypothetical hocus pocus authored by Wegmans traffic “experts” and overly-compliant city planners.
We on Probert will reap the disadvantages of increased traffic volume on our now quiet and relatively pleasant little street and will receive absolutely nothing in return. Indeed, we are being asked to endure yet another extended period of construction dirt, noise, and disruption. No, no, and again no to this smoke and mirrors proposition! LEE LONDON
Giuliani at Fisher
So, St. John Fisher is bringing in Rudolph Giuliani to give this year’s commencement speech. Giuliani is the man who recently said, “I do not believe that the president loves America … He wasn’t brought up the way you were brought up and I was brought up through love of this country.” I find Fisher’s choice interesting. Here is what I’ve noticed over Obama’s presidency: it has brought racism right out in the open. The significant number of people who are still uncomfortable with having a black man as president have learned that they can make these dehumanizing, veiled, racist comments, and as long as they don’t use the n-word, it gets excused as “just politics.” Giuliani knew what he was saying and who he was saying it to. He is separating the president out as “not like you or me.” We’ve heard this kind of thinking before in our history. I say this as a person who has had major issues with some of Obama’s policies (as I did with his predecessor), but who understands the difference between honest disagreement and hate speech. Mr. Giuliani has the right to speak at Fisher without disruption. Members of the graduating class also have the right to let Mr. Giuliani know what they think of his divisive comments. BRIAN CONHEADY
I’m one of those Fisher alumni referred to in Christine Carrie Fien’s article on the choice of
Rudy Giuliani as the college’s 2015 commencement keynote speaker (April 29). The college’s growth over the past few decades has been great to watch. Not just the physical campus, but also the increased diversity of students and faculty, and the expanded number of disciplines — a source of pride for all members of the Fisher community. I felt part of that community until the announcement of Mr. Giuliani’s speaking there. Who made this choice? President Bain? A faculty or student committee? A wealthy donor? No one seems to know or want to tell. Mr. Giuliani represents the opposite of the values of teachers, administrative leaders, and staff that I knew as a student and in the years since. The former New York City mayor’s long list of public statements and some of his personal behavior reveal a divisive figure. He’s maligned President Obama on numerous occasions. Hardly characteristics deserving an honorary degree from a supposed center of higher education. The student government president’s and administration’s statements quoted in the article are sad and absurd: leadership and resilience after 9/11? Mr. Giuliani has these qualities to share with his audience? A man who continues to profit both financially and politically from that horrific tragedy? If leadership and resilience are the selection criteria, why not invite, for example, Representative Tammy Duckworth, the first AsianAmerican woman elected to Congress in Illinois, the first disabled woman elected to the House of Representatives, and a severely wounded Iraq combat veteran? There are many other possibilities from politics, business, education, the arts and sciences that actually embody leadership and resilience worth imitating.
Mr. Giuliani’s prominent place at this public event is a stain on Fisher’s claim to be an institution of higher learning and intellectual integrity. BOB SHEA
Transit center problems
RTS CEO Bill Carpenter recently announced that the agency would no longer bus city school students.
Those of us who opposed use of federal dollars for the transit center boondoggle consistently predicted the issues that almost immediately ensued following the opening of the center. Those dollars could (should) have been used to improve the paltry public transit system. Instead, we have a crime issue, reduced service, removal of some onethird of the bus stops in a system that already barely functioned to get anyone where they needed to go unless you’re a suburbanite working downtown. And those folks don’t seem to want to make use of the service much at all, and will now be even more hesitant since hearing all the bad news about the transit center. Besides this transit center debacle, we’ve also recently had a bus fare increase to fund bonuses for clearly incompetent executives. Can a mid-sized city hold its head up with essentially no public transit system? Yes, Bill Carpenter should be run out of town, but it was a large cabal of local officials who backed the transit cesspool. The level of cynicism and corruption in front of our faces should wake us all up to the sorry state of our local leadership. For those of us who saw this coming from miles away, believe me, the schadenfreude nowhere near compensates for the sorrow and shame we now feel for our city.

manager for the Genesee Valley Park West master plan. The last plan is about 30 years old, he says, and was done when an active rail line ran through the park’s west side. “So this is the first time we’ve been able to take a holistic look at the west side,” Mroczek says. One of the things that the new plan will look at is the facilities for the Waterways Center. The center, which offers kayaking, rowing, sculling, canoeing, and other activities, has outgrown its space, Mroczek says. It would be difficult to grow programming under the current conditions, he says. “They’re bursting at the seams,” Mroczek says. “There’s been a huge uptick of demand. Our Department of Recreation and Youth Services sees it as an integral component for recreation and getting access to the water for the community.” But the demand has a downside, too. The infrastructure needed along the river bank to support rowing programs and other activities could jeopardize the original purpose of the park, which is “to provide the citizens with a meaningful natural river experience close to the city,” according to city paperwork. “It’s a complex puzzle to put together,” Mroczek says. “We’re trying to respect that history, while still being able to make it useful for current users.” Olmsted envisioned different uses for the east and west sides of the park, he says. The east was supposed to be more passive, Mroczek says, while Olmsted wanted active uses on the west side — to a point. “Right from the start, the city parks commission was pushing for boathouses and running tracks and bicycle tracks,” he says. “He really wanted to keep that all on the west side. But at the same time, keep those sweeping river views and vistas.” The master plan will also evaluate conditions at the pool and ice rink complex, ball fields, tennis courts, lodge, and playgrounds. It will look at how vehicles and people move through the park, complete an analysis of the landscape, and include a study of the river shoreline — mostly as it relates to access to and use of the water, Mroczek says. Genesee Valley Park has three historic Olmsted pedestrian bridges, one on the west side of the park and two on the east side. They’re all in bad shape, Mroczek says. The master plan will recommend restoration of the bridge on the west side, he says, but the bridge is owned by the state, which probably won’t consider the restoration a priority, he says, since the bridge isn’t open to vehicles. Once the master plan is approved the state, Mroczek says, the city will start looking for funding for implementation. 10 CITY MAY 6-12, 2015

Drifting through downtown [ CHOW HOUND ] BY KATIE LIBBY
For those that might only go downtown at night for concerts or other events, it can be easy to forget that there is life in the area during the day, before it empties out after all the nine-to-fivers go home. Drifters L.B. is a new restaurant located inside the recently opened Hilton Garden Inn (155 East Main Street), which is in the historic building once occupied by the National Clothing Company. The restaurant was opened on March 26 by DHD Ventures — which also owns Victoire Belgian Beer Bar and is currently developing the Button Lofts. Executive Chef Mark Crandall and Food and Beverage Director, Joshua Santay, along with the owners, have developed a menu that they hope will give travelers and Rochester residents a taste of home. Crandall recently relocated to Rochester from Alabama and brought some southern influence to the menu in the form of Chicken and Waffles ($10), which is fried chicken and smoked chili butter on top of a Belgian waffle.
The Americana-influenced menu will evolve and change to incorporate seasonal and local ingredients. You don’t get much more American than Grilled Cheese and Tomato Bisque ($9), a dish that is customizable from an assortment of cheese options like gruyere, pepper jack, and cheddar. The Wedge Salad ($11) — which is definitely enough for two people to share — included two large wedges of iceberg lettuce, topped with bacon, crumbled blue cheese, blue cheese dressing, and a balsamic reduction. If you’re feeling a bit fancy, the Lobster and Crab Fondue ($11) is available as an appetizer and features a blend of cheeses combined with lobster meat and lump crab. Santay says the restaurant hopes to soon start a Sunday brunch and will most likely offer a Mother’s Day brunch as well. Drifters L.B. is located inside the new Hilton Garden Inn at 155 East Main Street, and is open seven days a week for lunch and dinner from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. 454-3999. Visit its Facebook page at
facebook.com/DriftersLB, or its website, drifterslb.com, for more information.

In fact, with its punk aggression, 1977 London birthdate, and new wave associates it would make sense to say the Furs made the cracks. With its thick, fuzzed-out guitar driving behind Richard Butler’s vocal rasp, the band unleashed a barrage of noir-tinged hits like “Heaven,” “Into You Like a Train,” and “Love My Way.” I’m super excited to see this one.

The Rochester reggae-roots road dogs in Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad, have really outdone themselves on this very-non reggae outing, “Bright Days.” It’s splendiferously magnifantabulous and you can quote me on that. Now this isn’t the band’s first departure from its one-drop, rock steady rage — a groove it has completely mastered back to front. The band first dove into its Americana side with the release of “Country” in 2012. These two facets of GPGDS’s sound complement each other when juxtaposed. Looking at the band’s whole scope of work to date; the reggae is even more deep-dish-delicious while the Americana has a casual yet beautiful lope to it (thanks in part to the copious amounts of lap steel luxury). The jams on “Bright Days” are slightly reminiscent of the Dead except in this case the jams actually go somewhere. The playing on this album (available on vinyl) is comfortably loose, proficient, and respectful. The band knows how to not crowd a song and let it breathe. This is perfect music for taking your clothes off and running naked outside. Join me, won’t you? — BY FRANK DE BLASE
“In The Beginning” Resonance Records wesmontgomery.com
By the time Wes Montgomery died of a heart attack in 1968, at the young age of 43, he was widely regarded as the best guitarist in jazz. But by then his records were weighed down by covers of pop songs backed by overwrought strings. His best albums were those recorded in the late-1950’s and early-1960’s. Now a great new two-CD set “In The Beginning” takes us even further back with 26 never-before-released tracks from the late-1940’s and early to mid-1950’s. It includes a 55page booklet with essays by Ashley Kahn, Quincy Jones (who produced a 1955 session), and Pete Townshend. Many of these track, recorded in small clubs in Indianapolis, feature a band consisting of Montgomery, his brothers Buddy (piano) and Monk Montgomery (bass), and forgotten greats Alonzo “Pookie” Johnson (sax) and Sonny Johnson (drums). There are also soulful vocals by Debbie Andrews and others. The repertoire includes Montgomery originals along with a wealth of standards including “Django,” “Caravan,” “After You’ve Gone,” “All the Things You Are,” “A Night in Tunisia,” and an especially spirited “Love for Sale.” You can hear the excitement in the crowd at the Turf Club reacting to a fullyformed Montgomery and the exuberance of this great local band. They were the first to know — this is a thrilling collection. — BY RON NETSKY

Music feels as if that’s what many openly express to wanting and desiring for themselves. Do you find this limiting? Or do you find it challenging?
I find very little in life limiting, but challenging is most certainly something I would ascribe to this. Again, it’s always a challenge in the beginning or infancy of a new art project, especially in the new digital social media world we live in … everyone demands 24/7 access to everything that’s going on in your life which is something I’m opposed to. I — we — must have our own space and privacy as well for our peace of mind. Scott Weiland and The Wildabouts will perform at Water Street Music Hall on Friday. The band just released its album, “Blaster.” PHOTO PROVIDED
Wild about Weiland Scott Weiland and The Wildabouts FRIDAY, MAY 8 WATER STREET MUSIC HALL, 204 NORTH WATER STREET 8 P.M. | $25-$100 WATERSTREETMUSIC.COM SCOTTWEILAND.COM [ INTERVIEW ] BY FRANK DE BLASE
Give Scott Weiland a break. Really. It’s easy to dismiss the 47-year-old singer for the erratic behavior, drug drama, and endless quirks, but those are the same elements to the man’s on-stage chaos and flamboyance — chaos and flamboyance that have solidified him as one of this generation’s great front men. Weiland and his band, The Wildabouts, have released a new album, “Blaster,” and it is the solid wallop of big rock ‘n’ roll you’d expect. There’s nothing earth-shatteringly new or progressive about it, but it is big guitars and big beats dancing around Weiland’s trademark strident delivery. If you’ve dug what he’s done before, you’ll dig this, no sweat. It’s Weiland’s history, and the expectations it has created, that haunt the man. Starting in San Diego in 1985, Weiland fronted Stone Temple Pilots to an eager post-grunge climate in the early 90’s. STP’s deft yet heavy riffcentric rock earned the band three Grammy nominations and one win in 1994 for Best Hard Rock Performance with its song “Plush.” The relationship between Weiland and the rest of the band was tumultuous and frayed. Weiland tried his hand at solo projects like The Magnificent Bastards, but ultimately 14 CITY MAY 6-12, 2015
the band broke up in 2002, with a few following half-hearted stabs at reuniting. Weiland went on to front the super group Velvet Revolver with members of Guns N’ Roses. The band lasted five years, even with Weiland on the fence about officially joining the band. This has all secured Weiland a seat at the table of rock history in spite of his detractors — in spite of himself. City Newspaper shot the rocker some Q’s and he shot back some A’s. Here’s what was said. City: What led up to this new band and album? Scott Weiland: I’ve been playing with these
guys on and off now going on 9 years. We felt it was time for us to really create our own band together and make an album of our joint efforts. The first track on “Blaster” is a bold opener with all its pedal steel atmosphere and serenity. Was your intention to surprise fans with this?
You must be speaking about the track “Circles,” which is actually the last track on the album. Jeremy Brown had created this riff, and there are no surprises to anyone who knew Jeremy. T-Rex is an obvious influence. What are some others in there that aren’t so apparent?
Love & Rockets and MC5 were two great influences. Coming from such recognizable projects as STP and Velvet Revolver, do you feel fans have expectations?
My fans have very high expectations; and at times unrealistic, unfortunately. I’m not working now to attempt to re-create the sound or music that I did in previous bands, and at times it
The album is great and certainly has your prints on it, but what’s something you’ve done to explore different avenues and sounds?
The band got together many, many times and did nothing but work out the sonics of this album long before we put pen to paper and began writing. We knew that once we had the sonic landscape painted in our minds, the rest would naturally flow from there. What is it about The Wildabouts and this album that’s different or better than your previous endeavors?
I will leave that up to others to answer for themselves. Because no matter what is said people will continually hold their own opinions of my work. Generally, are you a band leader or a band member?
Both. They’ve always gone hand in hand during my career as an artist. You recently lost a friend, Wildabouts guitarist Jeremy Brown. Has this colored your songwriting at all?
I haven’t even begun to start trying to write new music since Jeremy’s passing. The emotions of that are still far too heavy on my mind, I mean, we just lost him a month ago right before the album release. The band and myself are busy trying to tour this album which wouldn’t have been created without Jeremy, and are 100 percent focused on the task at hand. With all the music writer hacks you have to deal with, what’s the question you’ve never been asked and wish you had?
Anything that doesn’t have to do with STP or VR. Look, the fact is that I’m quite proud of what I’ve accomplished on past ventures … but now, the future is The Wildabouts. This is where my heart lies and where I will continue striving to put out creative works for my fans. I wish all the guys well in their ventures, but the paths have changed for us all and we are all happy doing our own different projects.

CLASSICAL | “PORGY AND BESS”
George Gershwin’s “Porgy and Bess” is often called the Great American Opera, and I can’t argue with that. First produced on Broadway in 1934, “Porgy and Bess” eventually found a home in opera houses throughout the world (though it has made periodic returns to Broadway, most recently in 2012). The score (with lyrics by DuBose Heyward and Ira Gershwin) is such a string of hits — “Summertime,” “I Got Plenty o’ Nuttin’,” “Bess, You Is My Woman Now,” “It Ain’t Necessarily So” — that a concert presentation is a great proposition too. That’s what musicians from SUNY Brockport will be presenting this Friday night, with Jason Holmes as Porgy, Allyson Tardy as Bess, Elena O’Connor (pictured) as Clara and Serena, and Nicholas Bernard as Jake and Sportin’ Life. The program also includes short pieces by Johnny Green and Aaron Copland, as well as two of Richard Strauss’s “Four Last Songs.” Thomas Warfield will give a pre-concert talk about his uncle, the baritone William Warfield, one of the great performers of the role of Porgy — and a recent Rochester Music Hall of Fame inductee. Brockport Symphony Orchestra and CollegeCommunity Chorus present “Selections from ‘Porgy and Bess’ in Concert” on Saturday, May 9, at the SUNY Brockport Tower Fine Arts Center Mainstage, 180 Holley Street, Brockport. 7:30 p.m. Thomas Warfield’s pre-concert talk begins at 6:30 p.m. $8.50$16. 395-2787 or fineartstix.brockport.edu. — BY DAVID RAYMOND Family Tree.

MONDAY, MAY 11
Deathgrind is one of those brutally intense fusion genres that needs to balance well in order to work — but when it works, damn, it will blow your eardrums out. Misery Index has been a prime example of how to do the noise well, ramming together the dread, doom, and technicality of death metal with the all-engines-go, pounding speed of grindcore. The Baltimore-based band released its fifth studio, 2014’s “The Killing Gods,” which is just as bombastic as anything Misery Index has done before, but finds the band dipping into some new darkly atmospheric territories.

Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra Principal Pops Conductor Jeff Tyzik and Rochester City Ballet Artistic Director Jamey Leverett will both present interpretations of another’s art onstage this weekend. “Images: Musical Impressions of an Art Museum” is a suite of seven movements that Tyzik wrote based on seven pieces of art from the Memorial Art Gallery. Leverett choreographed seven dance pieces based on Tyzik’s music. “Jamey’s choreography is the actual piece of art twice removed now,” Tyzik says, adding that (at the time he talked with City) he hadn’t yet seen what she has created. “Jamey creates in the studio with her dancers around her. It’s something I’m not a part of and don’t need to be a part of. I would never step in her way of interpreting my art. Based on working with her in the past, I don’t expect anything less than magnificent.” Within the last eight years, Leverett has created dance pieces for two other Tyzik compositions: “Bravo
Colorado” and “New York Cityscape.” At approximately 45 minutes in length, “Images” will be the longest work she has choreographed to his music. “The music is always the roadmap for the dance,” Leverett says. “I feel fortunate that Jeff has entrusted me to create a visual to his music.” Leverett has been both artistic director of RCB and artistic director of Draper Center for Dance Education — the company’s feeder school — for 12 years, but just recently, she announced her plans to step down from her RCB position. During her time leading the company, it developed from a student company with seven dancers, to a professional organization with 14 dancers on contract. Ninety-five percent of what the company has performed was her choreography, Leverett says. Next, she hopes to grow as an artist by experimenting outside of Rochester. She will remain artistic director for the school. “I’m happiest in the studio creating work,” Leverett says. “Making ballets and ballet dancers.” Tyzik says he believes their collaborations aren’t over. “I have a feeling we’ll be doing something else again in the future.” “Images” was commissioned by Memorial
Art Gallery patrons Bob and Joanne Gianniny to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the gallery in 2013. Tyzik’s suite is 45 minutes long, and each of the
SOUTH WEDGE movements is subtitled based on its individual artwork. Tyzik and Leverett each spent time in the gallery recently exploring the way in which each of the seven pieces of art affected them before they actually began creating themselves. The piece “Dr. Caligari” (1984) by local and internationally renowned artist Wendell Castle is one of the artworks selected by Tyzik. Inspired by the German Expressionist horror film “The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari,” this angular clock reminiscent of a rocket is among a series of 13 clocks Castle made in the 1980’s — visual metaphors suggesting the concept of time. Tyzik says there is a direct correlation between the clock and his music. “The idea of that piece is a time continuum so I used a steady underlying pulse but I experiment with different rhythms working against each other,” he says. Both Tyzik and Leverett agree that the different sections of their creations vary widely. The sculpture “Memory” (1914), by William Ordway Partridge, is of a mother holding a child, powerful in its simplicity. Tyzik says he was thinking of his daughter and his granddaughter when he composed this movement for solo violin and solo oboe; the violin represents the voice of the mother, and the oboe the voice of the child. In turn, Leverett choreographed a minimalistic piece with her son in mind. Contrast the tenderness of that music and dance with the celebratory feel of the section based on “Summer Street Scene in Harlem” (1948) by Jacob Lawrence. The painting is full of action, energy, and bright colors. Tyzik wrote his composition in the Duke Ellington style of the 1940’s to capture the essence of the painting. The concert takes place Friday, May 8, and Saturday, May 9, in Kodak Hall at Eastman Theatre, and also includes two more Tyzik compositions: “Call to Worship” from “Pleasant Valley Suite,” and “Traffic Jammin” from “New York Cityscapes.” John William’s overture to “The Cowboys,” and Aaron Copland’s “An Outdoor Overture” and “Fanfare for the Common Man” round out the pops program. Photography projections of the Rochester Camera Club will accompany the performance.

The story of art has almost always walked hand-in-hand with the story of money. Wealthy patrons have commissioned the most intrepid artists throughout the centuries, making celebrities of painters, sculptors and their subjects. Artists’ life works have been immortalized in private collections and museums, some appreciating in value beyond comprehension. The current exhibition on view at Memorial Art Gallery is drawn from the RBC Wealth Management Art Collection, and showcases works that speak to the human condition across age, race, and other measurements of identity and experience. Though there is a logical link between this show and the gallery’s new director,
Jonathan Binstock, whose most recent job was senior vice president and senior advisor for Citi Private Bank’s Art Advisory & Finance Group, this show was being negotiated by MAG staff in early 2013, long before Binstock was chosen, and before Holcomb had even decided on a retirement date. Through the past two decades, RBC Wealth Management — the international arm of the Royal Bank of Canada — has collected more than 400 works of contemporary art, in celebration the diversity of our society. In the words of Donald McNeil, RBC Wealth Management’s current collections curator, “The human figure makes the collection accessible, yet thought-provoking; entertaining, yet challenging; timeless, yet relevant. It shows who we are and how we live.” “All the work in the RBC Wealth Management Collection focuses on the human face, body, condition,” says Marie Via, MAG director of exhibitions. Pieces not traveling in the show at a given time are kept on the walls, mostly in public spaces, at the corporate headquarters in Minneapolis, where employees and visitors alike can see them, Via says. “It’s my impression that they are encouraging people to recognize and celebrate differences, intersections, and overlaps in our lives.” This sliver of the collection includes works by many impressive names: Elizabeth Peyton, Roy
Lichtenstein, Carrie Mae Weems, Alec Soth, Kehinde Wiley, Chuck Close. Even this section, little more than 10 percent of the collection, reveals a great diversity of artists and subjects and styles. And this is quite possibly the most photography I’ve seen showcased at once at the Memorial Art Gallery. Close to the entrance of the Grand Gallery is a triptych Polaroid print by Dawoud Bey. In “Sharmaine, Vincente, Joseph, Andre, and Charlie,” five pensivelooking young adults pose together, two of them split over different frames. Nearby, John Ahearn’s “Two Girls” is the only true sculpture in the show, the acrylic-on-plaster busts of two giggling young girls, cheek to cheek and popping out from the wall with infectious mirth in their expressions. The everlasting struggle of trying Jose Bedia’s “Aquellos dias de guerra (Thise Days of War)” to navigate this world is depicted in is part of “The Human Touch” collection, which reflects the several works, including Kerry James diversity in our global society. Selections from the collection are Marshall’s “Blind Ambition,” a work currently on view at Memorial Art Gallery. PHOTO PROVIDED in acrylic and collage on canvas. A black-as-pitch man -- an element the old book covers, photos, and paintings, the artist uses to comment on the invisibility of portrait refusing to be pigeon-holed while blacks in American -- stands next to a ladder acknowledging a tangled mass of sources. with the words “ambition” at the bottom and Jaune Quick-to-See Smith’s “Indian Head” “success” at the top, with the words “courage” is an oil and mixed media work of a silhoutted and “industry” barely legible on the rungs, profile of a red face with an exaggeratedly indicating there is extra effort required for bulging nose, surrounded by articles on the this man to reach his goals. status of treaties and newspaper ads selling The large, vibrant and kinetic diptych, products with appropriated names like “Big “The New Red Carpet,” by Michael Vasquez, Chief Tomatoes” and “Jeep Grand Cherokee.” echoes this theme of maplessly navigating a Iona Rozeal Brown’s “Untitled (Female)” dangerous world.

COMEDY | MICHAEL MCDONALD
Michael McDonald is probably best known for his 10-year stint on “MADtv” performing gut-busting sketch comedy. For years, McDonald was the go-to guy for impersonations on the show, parroting a host of characters and celebrities from Dr. Phil and Chris Martin to Saddam Hussein. MADtv-watchers will remember Sean Gidcomb, Bible Dude, and the Depressed Persian Tow Truck Driver — all products of McDonald’s wonky humor. More recently, he has been heavily involved with directing and writing for “Cougar Town,” and has directed a handful of episodes of “Mike and Molly.” When not acting, directing, or writing, McDonald cracks jokes in person on national comedy tours.

THEATER | “THE YEOMEN OF THE GUARD”
The Off-Monroe Players — Rochester’s Gilbert and Sullivan company — will present “The Yeomen of the Guard” as its spring production. In this tale of the Tower of London and its famed Yeomen guards, the stage is set with the wrongful accusation and imprisonment of one Colonel Fairfax. Various efforts by his friend, Sergeant Meryll, to spring him from the Tower result in significant shenanigans and tomfoolery, with both true love and mercenary marriage thrown into the mix. The operetta is directed by Don Kelley and David Odgers, with musical direction from Marcia Sheremeta. All of Off-Monroe Players productions are free to the public, with donations from patrons and showgoers supporting the shows. The Off-Monroe Players’ “Yeomen of the Guard” runs for two weekends from Friday, May 8 to Sunday, May 17, at Salem United Church of Christ, 60 Bittner Street. 7:30 on Friday and Saturday and 2 p.m. on Sunday.

Another brick in the wall “Avengers: Age of Ultron” (PG-13), DIRECTED BY JOSS WHEDON NOW PLAYING [ REVIEW ] BY ADAM LUBITOW
Eleven movies into Marvel’s sprawling cinematic universe, we expect certain things from the studio’s biannual superhero extravaganzas: loads of action, a few Easter eggs hinting at the direction of the coming installments, and plenty of Joss Whedon-y quips and snarky banter in between all of the explosions. The first “Avengers” movie was an impressive juggling act. Whedon (notable as the only Marvel director to receive sole writing credit on his films)

was able to weave together the threads of the preceding installments and deliver a satisfying action movie with heart. But now with “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” it seems there’s just too much to balance. The film not only has to catch us up on our established heroes — Iron Man/Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.), Captain America (Chris Evans), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), the Hulk/Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo), Black Widow/Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson), and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) — but also introduce several new characters while laying the groundwork for the next phase of movies. The result is messy and overstuffed, and that messiness translates to a feeling of unevenness. For everything that works, just as many elements fall flat. “Age of Ultron” also doesn’t get to benefit from the innate excitement that came from seeing these characters coalesce as a team for the first time. As this film opens, we see how they’ve settled into their roles, working together to take down a Hydra base. It’s during this battle that we’re introduced to super-powered twins Wanda and Pietro (“Godzilla” co-stars Elizabeth Olsen and Aaron Taylor-Johnson),
known to comic fans as Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch. Olsen makes the most of her role, though Quicksilver fails to make much of an impression; Bryan Singer put the character to much better use in last year’s “X-Men: Days of Future Past.” In their role as protectors of Earth, the Avengers can only do so much, and Tony Stark becomes convinced that a better long-term plan is needed, ultimately deciding that the best course of action is to build an armor shield around the earth. He and Bruce Banner set about creating an artificial intelligence (which seems to be the theme of the year so far, with “Chappie” and “Ex Machina” recently offering their own takes on the subject), dubbed Ultron. Unfortunately, Ultron quickly gains sentience (and a voice provided by James Spader) and reaches the conclusion that the true threat to the world is the human race. Marvel still has a problem coming up with compelling villains to match its heroes, and Ultron does nothing to alter the pattern. He makes a great, intimidating first appearance, but as he upgrades himself over the course of the film, he evolves into a slick CGI creation with a penchant for sarcasm, and the character’s menace deflates bit by bit. Besides the action, what audiences have really responded to in Marvel’s films are the characters. The talented cast is able to bring life and distinct personalities to these heroes, and “Age of Ultron” excels in its development of Black Widow and Hawkeye — the human Avengers who’ve gotten short shrift in Marvel’s overall film universe.

you’re on a team with a super soldier, a god, a tech-genius billionaire, and a scientist rage monster, it can be difficult to pin down what an ordinary human might bring to the table. Whedon’s script argues that it’s their humanity that actually holds the team together. I can’t hate a movie that allows such a large role for my favorite Avenger: We get to see a bit of Hawkeye’s home life, and in one of the best moments of the film, he gets to give a crucial pep talk. Natasha’s sweet, flirty romance with Bruce Banner is handled well, even if that relationship seems to have developed out of nowhere. A vision sequence offers a tantalizing glimpse of Natasha’s backstory, but also functions as a depressing reminder that there are still no official plans for a standalone Black Widow film. “Ultron” comes together during its actionpacked climax; Whedon knows how to juggle large scale action divided between a huge cast of characters and it’s undeniably thrilling to see the entire Avengers team band together to stop the robot menace. Still, with the lineup of Marvel movies scheduled out through 2019, the release of each new installment has started to feel obligatory, and the continued announcements only serve to diminish the stakes in each film. It’s difficult to worry too much about whether our heroes will triumph when we know they’re due to appear in a sequel next year. It says a lot that when the now traditional “The Avengers will return” title card came up following the end credits, I heard a voice from the front of the theater mutter an unimpressed “well, yeah.”
The thing about love is that there’s too much that our limited language prevents us from truly expressing, so it’s fortunate that there exist artists who are able to convey the tangled emotions that mere words can’t. If you’ve ever seen any of animator Bill Plympton’s award-winning work, you know that he rarely relies on dialogue anyway. It should come as no shock that his latest feature-length piece manages to weave its reliably trippy, wordless magic through affairs of the heart. Inspired by the cuckoldry pulp of James M. Cain, the often eye-popping “Cheatin’” tells the alternately forlorn and funny tale of a seemingly blissful relationship put to the test when an envious third party tries to tear it down.
Meeting the starry-eyed way so many of us do — during a rescue from possible electrocution on the bumper cars at a carnival — the instantly smitten Jake and Ella appear to enjoy a loving, lusty relationship, with gas-station attendant Jake constantly staving off the advances of women drawn to his Plympton-esque 12-pack abs. But when one conniving dame arranges to throw some doubt into his mind, the despondent Jake begins setting up regular appointments at the seedy EZ Motel with a cavalcade of conquests. Cue Ella’s confusion, an inept murder attempt, and a serendipitous meeting with El Merto and his Trans Soul Machine, and “Cheatin’” unfolds as a frenetic series of miscommunications and misunderstandings. Add a few buckets of Jake’s sloshy, shapeshifting tears, and you’ve got this film’s version of true love. Plympton seems to enjoy that rare blend of fame and freedom, creating work popular and acclaimed but still a little too surreal for the studio system and answering only to himself. “Cheatin’” might be Plympton’s most sophisticated film to date, both in terms of subject matter (sex! nudity!) and imagery that careens between silly and swooning, fluidly rendered with elegant grotesquery and artfully deployed opera. The illustration of Ella’s heart gradually opening up is divine, and Jake’s botched attempt to end it all is pure Goldbergian slapstick. If there’s a quibble here, it’s with the mid-century gender relations, as Ella reacts to the wildly unfaithful Jake in mildly degrading ways rather than either of them overtly addressing an obviously important subject. Fortunately, Plympton’s trancelike pastels and pencils never disappoint. “It’s okay to fool people as long as you’re

It’s a sprawling, adrenaline-filled gangster epic with enough material for an entire year’s worth of Hollywood action blockbusters, and visually more inventive than all of them combined. (Anurag Kashyap, India 2012, 320 min., DCP, Hindi w/subtitles) Fasten your seat belts, and note the 5 p.m. starting time. Presented by Paolo Cherchi Usai, Senior Curator, Moving Image Department.
world works,” James Randi tells us at the outset of “An Honest Liar,” an unexpectedly revealing documentary portrait of Randi the man as well as his alter ego, an illusionist known as The Amazing Randi. Directors Tyler Measom and Justin Weinstein thumbnail the now-octogenarian Randi’s early life for us — born in Toronto and inspired by Houdini, Randi carved out a nice little career for himself as a magician, with touring and TV appearances on shows like “Happy Days” — before narrowing the focus to his post-magic calling as an investigator of those who claim psychic powers. Most famously, in the early 1970’s Randi set out to expose as frauds mentalist Uri Geller (“Do you know how many times Randi tried to ruin my career?” he marvels in his oncamera interview) and faith-healer Peter Popoff, who made a fortune preying on the gullible. Measom and Weinsten provide us satisfying footage of people getting their just desserts (including the otherwise innocent Alice Cooper, whom Randi guillotined on stage during the 1973-74 “Billion Dollar Babies” tour), and we also hear from admiring colleagues like Penn Jillette, and Adam Savage from “Mythbusters.” The film’s obvious pro-Randi agenda leaves no doubt about the man’s noble intentions, but some of Randi’s quests do smack a little of ego rather than a desire to protect people. We also meet José Alvarez, Randi’s partner since 1986 in both work and life, though Randi has only been publicly out since 2010. Turns out Alvarez had a thing or two up his own sleeve, and in the film’s third act we learn that even the most vigilant can be fooled. But you can ask him about it yourself: The Amazing Randi will be on hand for a Skype discussion following the screening.
KES Sunday, May 10, 2 p.m. Director Ken Loach received international acclaim for this enormously moving tale of a lonely working-class Yorkshire boy, who turns from a life of comic books and shoplifting when he finds a baby falcon and decides to raise and train it. “One of the best, the warmest, the most moving films of recent years.” –Roger Ebert (Ken Loach, UK 1969, 110 min., 35mm) Part of the series Dryden Kids.

A Swillburg Tudor
1130 Clinton Avenue South The freshly painted stucco exterior of this charming Tudor Revival style home catches your eye among the neighboring cross gable houses. There is sitting space on the front porch and the lattice on the north end is just waiting for climbing roses. The lot is 42’ x 38’ with off street parking for two cars and a cozy patio in the back. 1130 Clinton Ave. is located in the Swillburg Neighborhood (swillburg.com), which has a strong neighborhood association and lovely pocket parks. The Highland Park Diner, Cinema Theater, markets, and Highland Park are all just a short walk away. The front door opens into a generous foyer similar to that of an American Foursquare. In the early to mid-1900s this room usually housed the family piano. Today many homeowners use the area as office space. The bright and sunny living room with well maintained original hardwood floors is to the right. Perhaps you can picture your furniture in this sunny room with the lovely stained glass window. The dining room, again with the original hardwoods, has a similar stained glass window over the original window seat. This room also has a wood burning stove for you to enjoy on cold winter nights. The kitchen is generous with plenty of space for a table and more cabinets or workspace. Kitchens of this era often had a built-in ironing board in a long shallow cupboard on the wall. Most homeowners make that space into a
storage cupboard, so I was delighted to open the door and see the original ironing board. There is a side exit door at the landing of the basement stairs, providing access to the very private patio and partially fenced backyard. Laundry is in the basement. The current owners have taken great care to keep the mechanicals updated as the furnace, roof, and electrical have all been updated or replaced. A lovely staircase leads from the foyer to a second floor central hallway which opens to three bedrooms and a nicely updated full bath. Originally a four bedroom home, the homeowners created space for a large master by removing a wall between two smaller rooms. The unfinished attic space is great for storing out of season clothing. This move-in ready 1,414 square foot house, because of its location, qualifies for the University of Rochester/Strong Hospital 3/3/3 grant program. The list price is an affordable $89,900. Don’t miss this one! You could be enjoying this coming summer on your front porch and by strolling to the parks, diner, and movies. Contact realtor Rome Celli with RE/MAX Realty Group at his office 756-7425 to see this very, very nice move-in ready home. by Sharon Pratt Sharon is the Education Associate at The Landmark Society.

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.
