URBAN JOURNAL | BY MARY ANNA TOWLER
Deconstructing Cuomo Barring some truly shocking scandal, our governor looks like a shoe-in for re-election. Still, it was interesting to read “Democrats Need to Replace Andrew Cuomo,” a recent Harold Meyerson column in the Washington Post. Meyerson cited New York State Democrats’ liberal history: progressive labor laws, massive public works projects, that kind of thing. And, Meyerson wrote: “In recent decades, New Yorkers have increasingly voted for Democratic candidates, and for increasingly liberal Democratic candidates.” So why, Meyerson wondered, would New York Democrats want to re-elect Cuomo? Meyerson listed non-liberal Cuomo actions: lowering taxes on big banks, slapping down New York Mayor Bill de Blasio’s attempt to raise the minimum wage and tax the wealthy. But of course Cuomo also pushed through a gun-control law, a gutsy move that a lot of politicians have run away from. And he played a key role in getting a marriage equality bill passed. The fact is, Cuomo is a moderate, not a liberal. And while the state has passed some strongly liberal laws and policies – abortion rights, elimination of the death penalty, a state health-insurance exchange, creation of the Adirondack Park – its history isn’t purely liberal, either. Any call for closing prisons is met with a huge outcry. The notorious Rockefeller Drug Laws were pushed by a governor who was considered a liberal Republican. The state has a long history of resisting campaign finance reform. And shamefully, state government has ignored a court order to fund urban school districts equitably. The Heartland may view us as a liberal enclave, but New Yorkers are a diverse bunch. And not every Democrat is a liberal. Sadly, a liberal candidate for governor wouldn’t stand a chance right now – and not solely because Republican and Democratic money squashes the hopes of any minor party. So Andrew Cuomo will be the Democrats’ nominee for governor this year. And barring some truly shocking scandal, he’ll win re-election. (And he’ll take office and continue his preparations for a campaign for the 2016 Democratic nomination for president, as a tough, pragmatic moderate.) My main concern about Cuomo isn’t his moderate philosophy. It’s his ethics. I think he really wanted gun control and marriage equality. Beyond that, too many of his positions and pronouncements seem little more than political posturing.
My main concern about Cuomo isn’t his moderate philosophy. Too many of his pronouncements seem little more than political posturing.” There’s a difference between compromising – moderating your position because otherwise you can’t get anything accomplished – and taking a position that simply sounds good, knowing you don’t intend to do anything. Cuomo talked a good game about ethics reform, but then shut down the Moreland Commission, which was supposed to investigate corruption in the State Legislature. And, frankly, I’m really, really worried about Cuomo and corruption. A few journalists speculated that Cuomo killed the Moreland Commission because its investigation was hitting too close to home. I think a bigger red flag is his infatuation with casinos. Maybe he does believe that casinos will bring an economic-development miracle to this state. But there’s too much money involved in that industry – and too much history of corruption. And as we wait for the Cuomo-inspired casino boom in New York, money is indeed changing hands. Lots and lots of money. Casino money helped convince New Yorkers to approve the casino expansion. Casino money has fueled the campaigns of New York political candidates, including Cuomo’s. Now it’s paying for lobbyists to help the companies bidding on the four licenses the state will award. Those lobbyists, the New York Times reported last week, “include many with personal or professional ties” to Cuomo. The governor insists that the process for selecting the casino operators has plenty of safeguards against influence and corruption, and maybe that’ll prove to be the case. Maybe I’m just jaded from all the news about corruption in Albany over the past few years. But I don’t think casinos are economicdevelopment tools for anybody except the casino operators and the people who feed off them. Am I being too cynical? Maybe. Still: Money. Casinos. New York politics. I just don’t like the smell. rochestercitynewspaper.com

There is certainly not enough evidence presented here to form an opinion. Bill Johnson may be right, but he could just as easily be wrong. Anyone who understands data analytics would also understand how easily these types of statistics can be manipulated to fit a personal agenda. There are two key points here: 1) As the article correctly points out, there is no context given to the information presented. This data implies that taxes increased 1.3 percent on average per year in these communities. I don’t have any facts to know if that is good or bad. 2) Most important, this anticasino “research” was sponsored by people who already own casinos (or racinos). Do we really think we can trust in unbiased results when the research is sponsored by
On Urban Journal’s support of school integration (“Segregation Forever”): This position is
Do disadvantaged families really want to see their children bused all over the county in order to assuage liberal editorial writers’ white guilt? Abolish the government school monopoly and let the families who know and love a child decide for themselves how to educate her and where to send her to school. As the editorial says, absolutely every other conceivable option has been tried, and the results only get worse. B.D.G.
fundamentally flawed. The lack of integration is not the reason the system is not working. Student success requires parental involvement, emphasis on the importance of education, and the resources to fully support their child’s participation. This problem starts at the elementary level. If you were exposed to the daily happenings at a city elementary school, you would see that the lack of parental ability (or desire) to support their child’s education is a massive hurdle to success. Perpetual poverty is certainly a large contributor to this issue. However, parents’ inability to support their children’s education does not improve simply because we bus the kids off to the suburbs. I am quite confident that a parent who can’t get their child on the bus to the city school will also struggle to get their child on a bus to the suburbs. The current system of school choice offers a parallel. Parents already have the option to send their children to “better, more affluent” neighborhoods to get a better education. This clearly has not helped and you only help make my point with School 23: a mostly white affluent neighborhood (think suburbs), and the system still fails. Until we enable the support system that these children need and create an environment for success, we will continue to fail. This will take grass-root actions to turn around. Our best chance of success is to empower parents to improve their local, neighborhood school. If parents care, schools improve and then neighborhoods improve. We can’t just bus these kids away and expect the problem to fix itself.
time to get control of the Lilac Festival, if it isn’t too late already. I’ve felt less safe in the crowd the last couple of years and I wasn’t planning on going this year, although I’m still undecided about being searched and tagged. The problem with the Lilac Festival is overcrowding and groups of loud and pushy youths without any adult supervision. It just creates the potential for trouble. Not to mention the people who still insist on bringing their dogs to the festival. What is it with them? Dogs can’t enjoy the flowers and crafts. They end up tripping people with their leashes and barking and fighting with other dogs. Just leave them home!
On School Turnaround’s proposal to run East High School:

What they will do is downsize the school by transferring the underperforming students. Test results will improve but fall at the schools that receive those kids. Then the company will take credit for the East High improvement and use it to secure other contracts. The district should not let them downsize. Let them show what they can do with the same kids. FGF

The US Supreme Court says Greece officials are not violating the First Amendment by opening their Town Board meetings with a prayer. Rochester residents Susan Galloway and Linda Stephens filed the initial complaint against the town. They said that the town gives preference to Christian prayers, and they asked courts to limit the town to inclusive prayers that reference God only in a general sense. The court’s ruling in Town of Greece v. Galloway reversed a lower court decision.

Seymour Library officials want authority to tax residents directly to fund services. PHOTO BY ASHLEIGH DESKINS
GOVERNMENT | BY JEREMY MOULE
Brockport library wants to go solo The budget for Brockport’s Seymour Library is at the mercy of three separate local governments. But that could change. Each year, library officials have to approach the towns of Sweden and Clarkson, as well as the Village of Brockport with funding requests. Each community decides what it will contribute, but Brockport generally sets the tone, since it operates on a different budget year than the towns. But it’s an inefficient system that often means the library doesn’t get the funding it needs, says Carl Gouveia, the library’s director. “Whoever gives them the least amount, that’s what the other

communities do,” says Brockport Mayor Margay Blackman. Library officials have proposed a solution. They want to create a special library district, which would allow library officials to tax residents directly to fund services instead of asking the governments for funding. Residents within the district would elect the library’s trustees and they’d vote on its annual budget, which is subject to the state’s property tax cap, Gouveia says. The State Legislature would need to pass a law to establish the district, and the communities’ Senate and Assembly representatives support the idea,
Gouveia says. Once the Legislature acts, Clarkson, Sweden, and Brockport residents would vote on the district, he says, and on its first budget. The proposal doesn’t need the blessing of Sweden, Clarkson, and Brockport officials, but library representatives are pursuing their support anyway. Gouveia says the village mayor and town supervisors seem to favor the plan. Mayor Blackman says she understands the need for the district, and she supports the proposal. But she says she thinks some Brockport trustees might see the plan as a step toward dissolving the village and may resist it.
“Hamas is part of Palestinian society. They have support of more than 20 to 25 percent of the people, and of course they were elected in 2006 in a democratic election. We can’t destroy them, and Hamas will not disappear because we want it.” [ SHLOMI ELDAR ]
MIDDLE EAST | BY TIM LOUIS MACALUSO
An imperfect peace The Middle East could be headed for more turmoil. Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ended recent peace negotiations with Palestinian leaders over the possibility of Hamas being part of a unified government Israel and the United States view Hamas as a terrorist organization. But the Palestinian political parties — Fatah and Hamas — have reconciled, and are working on forming a unified government anyway. Netanyahu says he supports the two-state solution that has Israel and an independent Palestine co-existing peacefully, but he remains opposed to negotiating with Hamas. But not everyone agrees with Netanyahu’s hardline approach; they say rejecting Hamas is no longer feasible. And observers such as Shlomi Eldar, a fellow at the Wilson Center in Washington, D.C., view the failure of the negotiations as an opportunity to forge a new way forward. In a recent phone interview, Eldar said the time has come for Israel and the US to accept that giving the Palestinians an ultimatum — it’s either Hamas or us — won’t work. Eldar is a veteran Israeli journalist and author of several books on Israeli and
Palestinian relations. His documentary film, “Precious Life,” was recognized by the Israeli Film Academy as the best documentary film of 2010. Eldar will be in Rochester on Thursday, May 8, to give a talk, “Israelis and the Neighbors: Special Moments Captured in Words and Videos.” The event is being presented by J Street Rochester at Temple B’rith Kodesh, 2131 Elmwood Avenue, at 7:30 p.m. The event is free and open to the public. Eldar said that Hamas has “changed its spots” from a terrorist group to a political party that now has to be responsible for improving the lives of everyday Palestinians, including the residents of the Gaza Strip. And he warned that a weaker Hamas opens the door to far more radical Islamic extremists. “Hamas is part of Palestinian society,” Eldar said. “They have support of more than 20 to 25 percent of the people, and of course they were elected in 2006 in a democratic election. We can’t destroy them, and Hamas will not disappear because we want it.” Even though Hamas is unlikely to formally recognize Israel, its leaders also view Israel as a fait accompli, Eldar said.

That may be as good of a starting point for new negotiations as we can expect, he said. “If the Israeli government accepted the new Palestinian government, it’s a step,” Eldar said.
EDUCATION | BY TIM LOUIS MACALUSO
East times 3? Rochester schools Superintendent Bolgen Vargas wants to divide the failing East High School into three separate schools, all housed in the current building. Vargas made the recommendation at a school board meeting Tuesday night. The Rochester school district is under orders from the State Education Department to come up with a plan to drastically improve academic performance at East. Vargas’s schools would focus on career readiness. There would be a foundation academy for seventh and eighth grade; a ninth-grade academy; and a career pathways academy for grades 10 to 12. Students in grades seven to nine would be broken into teams. The same teachers, for the most part, would instruct them through all three grades. The year-round schools would have an 11-month calendar and offer flexible schedules for older students. The East academies would adopt the Linked Learning program, blending academic and career education. Linked Learning would build on the culinary, optics, and teaching preparation programs at East. Vargas’s plan is an alternative to the proposal by School Turnaround. The nonprofit that specializes in improving failing schools recommends reducing East’s enrollment to around 700 students. A plan for East is due to the State Education Department by May 15. Implementation is supposed to happen this fall, but Vargas says he plans to ask for a one-year delay.

The Port of Rochester is not living up to its full potential, city officials say. A redevelopment project, done right, will boost the port’s profile, make the port a year-round destination, bring in traffic for Charlotte businesses, and raise tax revenue for the city, they say. The city’s desire for a transformational project has led to the selection of a developer who plans a multimillion-dollar reinvention of the Port of Rochester with a hotel, condominiums, townhouses, and commercial and office space. That’s on top of a marina already under construction by the city. But the drama of the project — it is unlike anything currently in Charlotte — has some people accusing the city of turning a public asset into a playground for the rich. Penthouse units in the housing developments will range from $900,000 to $1.2 million, according to the developer’s proposal. Others concerns involve parking, views, the character of Charlotte, and the future of the underused terminal building. There is also skepticism of the city’s ability to pull off the project; critics cite the high-profile failures of the fast ferry and the city-subsidized Pier 45 restaurant at the port terminal. “They can’t even keep that place open year round, and it loses money in the three months it’s open,” says Sean Schiano, who is on a joint committee of the Charlotte Community Association and the Port of Charlotte Merchants Association. The groups joined up to represent the Charlotte community on the port redevelopment. “We understand that we want development in Charlotte,” Schiano says. “But we want a sustainable development. We want responsible development — something that has community involvement and something that actually fits in the community of Charlotte.” A community meeting with the developer, Edgewater Resources, will take place at 7 p.m. on Thursday, May 8, at the Robach Community Center at Ontario Beach Park, 180 Beach Avenue. Edgewater’s proposal includes a 96-room hotel, 120 for-sale condominiums, and 50 townhomes. The primary market will be young professionals and empty nesters — the same demographics that experts say are driving the resurgence of downtowns nationwide. Sale prices of the housing units will start at $199,000 for a one bedroom and climb with the height of the buildings. “Affordable” units will be included on the lower floors of the condominiums and townhouses. The way that the City of Rochester defines affordable, officials say,
means that the units will essentially be middle income. A single occupant wouldn’t be able to make more than $56,300 annually, for example. City Council approved a zoning district for the port area in 2012 that allows considerable height for the buildings. The hotel, for example, could be 13 stories tall. Mark Gregor, the city’s manager of environmental quality, says the height is a compromise to make sure the project is viable for the developer. A very early proposal had private development covering about 20 acres of the 25-acre site, Gregor says. The current plan is slightly less than three acres. The trade-off, Gregor says, is that the buildings have to be higher. But the city has taken steps to preserve the views from Lake Avenue, he says, by limiting the height of the parts of the buildings that are on the road. The zoning allows a three-story maximum on Lake, Gregor says, and then the buildings will go in and up. Regarding the hotel, Gregor says that market research shows it is viable. And transient boaters say they would come to Rochester if they had a place to tie up their boats and stay, he says. “We’ll have a boater lounge with restrooms and showers,” Gregor says. “They’ll be able to buy ice. They’ll be able to do their laundry.” And Gregor refutes the suggestion that the city is privatizing the port. The marina will be open to the public and surrounded by a park and public promenade that will connect the Genesee River Trail to the Charlotte pier. And there is talk of a civic square with a reflecting pool or skating rink as part of the port project. Although the developer mentions plans for the terminal building in its proposal, Gregor says the city has not committed to selling the building. The city did give Edgewater a list of questions regarding the building, however, to find out how a redeveloped terminal would fit into the rest of the project. That the uproar over the project would happen now is a bit curious, considering
Charlotte residents crammed into a May 5 meeting on the port redevelopment project. PHOTOS BY MARK CHAMBERLIN
the city approved the zoning district with the building heights in 2012. Gregor says he thinks people perked up because construction has begun on the marina, and because Mayor Lovely Warren agreed to show all the proposals the city received for the port. Normally, the public would only see the selected project. Without the context of the city’s internal review of the proposals, Gregor says, people reacted to the designs they saw in the media. But those designs aren’t final, he says. People are seeing one version of what the project could look like when it’s fully developed, Gregor says. “It’s a very, very early point in the process in terms of what the concept of the development will look like,” he says. A proposal by a different developer, CEA International acting on behalf of local firm Morgan Management, was much more modest: 200 rental apartments with underground parking. The city chose the Edgewater proposal because it contains all owner-occupied units, which is better for the neighborhood, Gregor says. And it includes a variety of housing options at a wide range of prices. And the CEA proposal doesn’t have the transformation potential of the Edgewater plan, Gregor says.
Some people are worried that the project will alter Charlotte’s cozy charm. The neighborhood is strictly middle class, with a mean household income of less than $50,000, according to Census data. Gregor says the city has been talking, with varying intensity, about redeveloping the port since the 1960’s. The port is vastly underused, he says, generates no property tax revenue, and has a bit of an inferiority complex. “If you talk to other harbors and other ports around Lake Ontario, we have been simply known as the harbor with the parking lots,” Gregor says. “And no place for guest or day boaters to go, reliably.” A successful project will give a boost to the whole area, he says. Anywhere from 20 percent to 40 percent of Lake Avenue storefronts are vacant, Gregor says. Although there’s been talk in the community about creating an atmosphere similar to Niagara-On-the-Lake, Steve Golding, the city’s manager of downtown development, says the port project should be distinctly Rochester. “You want to create something that hopefully the community will like and the developer can work with, but will also have its own character,” he says. “They’ll know they’re in the Port of Rochester.” rochestercitynewspaper.com

Dining Angry Goat, happy patron [ CHOW HOUND ] BY KATIE LIBBY
The Angry Goat still has that new bar
smell. Filling the air is the scent of recently painted walls and freshly cut wood, not yet spoiled by spilled beer. Located on the corner of South Goodman Street and South Clinton Avenue, the pub has a great location near both the South Wedge and Swillburg neighborhoods. The Angry Goat is owned by Kevin Barton, Jeremy Sargent and Josh Kolstad. Barton also owns O’Callaghan’s Pub on Monroe Avenue. The Angry Goat features a rotating draft line, so when one keg is drained, a completely different craft beer is put on the line. The pub’s extensive cocktail menu includes drinks made with fresh herbs like basil, mint, and sage. For example, the Razz French Fizz ($9) is a heady concoction of sage leaves, raspberries, sour mix, gin, and champagne or sparkling wine. There is also an impressive selection of tequila and scotch to choose from. Barton is the kitchen manager and says The Angry Goat puts an emphasis on fresh ingredients. The menu features a solid selection of appetizers, salads, and sandwiches, and notably, chocolate covered bacon ($7.99). My group and I gave it a test drive. The Angry Goat Burger ($10.50) came out medium rare, topped with goat cheese, carmelized onions, pancetta, arugula and balsamic mayo. The Roast Beef on Weck ($8.50) was served on a salty kimmelweck roll sandwiching a pile of roast beef with au jus on the side for dipping. The French onion soup ($5.99) was topped with a “goat chevre grilled cheese” crouton and melted cheese and came out in a cast iron crock with a lid to keep it nice and hot. The Angry Goat will soon feature karaoke on Sundays and host live music a few times a month. Looking down the road, the pub may host a Bloody Mary and Mimosa brunch, but right now, the pub is focused on finding its niche. I’d say it’s off to a good start. The Angry Goat is located at 938 S. Clinton

Whatever odd picture you have in your head probably isn’t far from Peelander-Z. The NYC-based Japanese punk outfit is famous for its hilarious songs — “Taco Taco Tacos,” and “Too Many Mike” are among its best — vibrant costumes and off-the-walls concerts, where antics like holding up lyrics to songs and having audience members play the instruments are commonplace. If you like your punk fast, your concerts anything but normal, and your steak medium rare, Peelander-Z will be right up your alley. Envious Disguise and Sexy Teenagers will also perform. — BY TREVOR LEWIS

Daniel Bennett Group SATURDAY, MAY 10 HENRIETTA PUBLIC LIBRARY, 455 CALKINS ROAD 2:30 P.M. | FREE | 334-3401; HPL.ORG; DANIELBENNETT.NET [ JAZZ ] After graduating from New England Conservatory of Music, Rochesterian Daniel Bennett established himself in the New York scene as a triple threat: saxophonist, flutist, and composer. When he visits the Henrietta Public Library Saturday for a CD release concert, he’ll be introducing “Clockhead Goes To Camp,” his latest highly imaginative work following his “Bear” trilogy of albums. As you can tell by the title, Bennett has an unusual approach; he tells stories with his music. He’ll be ably assisted by Assaf Kehati on guitar and Sean Jefferson on drums. — BY RON NETSKY
Buckcherry THURSDAY, MAY 8 MAIN STREET ARMORY, 900 EAST MAIN STREET 8 P.M. | $27.50-$32.50 | BUCKCHERRY.COM; ROCHESTERMAINSTREETARMORY.COM
Call me out if you want, but Buckcherry is the best hard rock band around. Think Aerosmith or Thin Lizzy in their prime; think Larry Flynt wielding a Les Paul; think abandon and anarchy dished out loud and fast with one of the best rock voices today. Then picture yourself there, screaming your head off. Do I sound like a fan? Hell yeah! And despite what some trends may indicate, rock ’n’ roll is safe in the hands of bands like Buckchery — it ain’t going nowhere, Jack. Fozzy and Adelitas Way will also perform. — BY FRANK DE BLASE [ ROCK ]
The music industry is a fickle bitch; a rocky road littered with the broken hearts, souls, and limbs of those trying to get to the Promised Land. Once upon a time — 1968 to be precise — in Rochester, a hard-rockin’ psychedelic outfit called Sabattis came to be. The band members, all in their late teens, mirrored what was going on in music at the time with its exploratory darkness, picturesque lyrics, and loose renderings of tight arrangements. In its brief history, Sabattis shared the bill with other local bands like Rain, and The Red, White, and Blues Band, as well as national biggies like Savoy Brown. It made appearances at local venues like The Club on Gould Street, area high schools, and colleges and Highland Bowl where the band played for 10,000 fans. In 1970, the band landed in the studio to record seven tracks in the hopes of getting noticed and signed with a major label. But the labels didn’t come a-knockin’ and the band eventually fell apart. The end, or… Enter vintage music aficionado and Saxon Studios capo, Dave Anderson. Anderson got his hands on the original tapes from band members and insisted on pressing it on his Jargon Records label as part of Jargon’s Time Capsule Series. Some 40-odd years later you can finally dig Sabattis’ “Warning In The Sky.” It’s got a heavy Grand Funk Railroad drive and feel, a churchy organ that calls to mind Deep Purple’s Jon Lord, and guitar riffs reminiscent off early Alice Cooper without the pomp and camp. It’s a swell slice of Rochester music history, and a reminder to young bands still in hot pursuit of that elusive golden carrot on a stick that it may take a while. The album is definitely worth the wait. — BY FRANK DE BLASE

Music A riff, a beat, a lyric, a dream Roses & Revolutions MONDAY, MAY 12 LILAC FESTIVAL CENTER STAGE, HIGHLAND PARK 4 P.M. | FREE | ROCHESTEREVENTS.COM; ROSESANDREVOLUTIONS.COM [ Q&A ] BY FRANK DE BLASE
Band names can often be misleading and superfluous. And a lot of time is spent in creating a moniker, a title that frequently has nothing to do with the band that puts it on like an ill-fitting turtleneck. But when Tinted Image abandoned its name for Roses & Revolutions, it made perfect sense. Here is a duo that is steeped in the florid and the epic, the gentle and the unwavering, the beautiful and the fierce. At the heart of Roses & Revolutions is a mere duo — guitarist Matt Merritt and vocalist Alyssa Coco — bristling in the atmosphere and orchestration. The bands new self-titled EP — the follow up to its 2012 EP “Earth & Everything” — flows full of sunrise and promise, and a smoothness that never gets too sugary or dramatic. The EP is sort of a young adult cotemporary sound, smart with some sass and brass. And though its anchored in a gentle simplicity, it’s still big and beautiful. You can blame Coco’s perfect voice, you can blame Merritt’s introspective guitar work, and you can blame yourself if you don’t check Roses & Revolutions out, pronto. Merritt and Coco stopped by to chat about EP versus LP, writing songs and butting heads, and the duo’s scratch-off addiction. An edited transcript follows. CITY: What’s with everyone releasing EPs as opposed to LPs? Is it easier? Matt Merrit: Yeah, it’s easier for us as a newer
group to get stuff out quicker. I like it too, because it gives each song attention. If you have an album, stuff can kinda get lost in the shuffle. Also I think when you’re writing, it’s a quicker turnaround time to see what fans react to. Sometimes you commit a couple years to doing a full album and all of a sudden halfway through it you might decide you want to try different styles. For more-established bands it may make more sense to do a full album, for us it’s about getting music out as quickly as possible to see how people react to it.
Have you ever released something too early or too quickly? Alyssa Coco: I wish. I wish we turned around 22 CITY MAY 7-13, 2014

stuff too quickly. Unfortunately, we don’t have that problem yet. But we just released this album and we’re already in the studio working on new stuff. Is the new stuff similar to the EP, seeing as how you’re working on the heels of its release? Coco: It’s along the same lines as the stuff we
Merrit: Some of the material we just released
Alyssa came in and started singing, and for booking purposes we kept the name. We officially had something like five members in the group. Alyssa and I were writing every song, but we’d have to go to each member, get their approval, their input, then record it. With Roses & Revolutions it’s the same music now and we still have some of the same people playing on it, we just don’t need their approval. There are no hard feelings.
was recorded last summer. What we’re working on now, it’s in the same ballpark. But we had a lot of firsts on this EP, like experimenting with male harmonies and cello. And for instance, we’re doing a song called “Bonnie and Clyde” and we brought in a whole marching band with drums, but it’s still kinda in the same vein.
How does Roses & Revolutions write? Coco: It varies, but it’s always a 50-50
Did your name change facilitate a musical change in the group? Coco: Actually, it’s changed a lot. It’s a fresh new

name, a fresh new everything. Matt and I wrote pretty much everything before, but now instead of having five voices saying “This should go here, this should go there,” now it’s just the two of us, and it’s nice. But we have our differences.
When the two of you butt heads does that make for better songs? Coco: Actually, yeah. Merritt: Even when we do butt heads, it’s to
the smallest degree possible. Tinted Image originally was an instrumental funk band,
So what is it; a riff, a beat, a lyric, a dream? Coco: For me, I sit at the piano or with a guitar,

What aren’t you two good at? What do you struggle with? Coco: I think we’re too nice sometimes. Merritt: We are just a little timid sometimes. Coco: Yeah, timid — that’s a good word for it. So no bad habits, no crime sprees, no weekends in jail… no vices whatsoever? Merritt: We buy a lot of lottery tickets. Coco: Yeah, and we eat a lot of pizza.

PUNK | AGAINST ME!
ROCK | AQUA NEBULA OSCILLATOR
It is hard to imagine any band that is more intriguing right now than Against Me! Established in 1997 by singer-guitarist Laura Jean Grace — then known as Tom Gabel — Against Me! has had its share of ups (a major record deal) and downs (the departures of several key band members) but has managed to create a steady catalogue of intelligent, emotive punk. The Florida-based quartet’s latest release “Transgender Dysphoria Blues” — influenced by Grace’s 2012 coming out as a transitioning transgender person — feels like a landmark album from a band that has found its muse. Among the tunes is “Unconditional Love” with the sing-along chorus, “Even if your love was unconditional, it still wouldn’t be enough to save me.” Few groups can sound as sincere when expressing complicated, heart-wrenching emotions.
Coming all the way from France, Aqua Nebula Oscillator creates atmospheric, unpredictable music with a psychedelic edge. The band states that it is inspired by many different forms of art, including horror and cult movies — an influence that can be heard clearly through its penchant for creating music with an otherworldly, ominous sense to it. Aqua’s music alternates between heavy and metal-inspired to ethereal, acoustic tunes, both of which are infused with a knack for experimentation and noise. The band has played with The Dead Weather, The Black Angels, and Sky Saxon.

Carl Orff’s “Carmina Burana” is loved for its bawdy medieval texts and earworm tunes, but this choral blockbuster is described as a “scenic cantata.” So if you want to make a splash with it, why not give your audience plenty to look at as well as? That’s the philosophy behind this weekend’s production of “Carmina Burana” at SUNY Brockport, which not only makes joyful noises of its own, but also highlights the college’s thriving music and arts offerings. “Carmina Burana” brings together not only the Brockport Symphony Orchestra, vocal soloists, and College-Community Chorus, as you’d expect, but also dancers from SUNY Brockport’s Dance Department, a multimedia video display, and, for good measure, the Brockport Xylophone Ensemble. (Every town should have its own xylophone ensemble.) There’s another unusual item on the program: Artie Shaw’s Clarinet Concerto, with SUNY Brockport faculty member Scott Horsington as soloist.

It’s always fascinating to see the collaboration work between two very different artists. Graffiti artist Antonio “Chico” Garcia and photographer Jonathon White have been collaborating since the 1990’s by combining White’s prints with Chico’s unique character creations. Chico is a graffiti artist from New York City’s lower east side whose work can be seen all over the city. His style includes the use of vivid colors and a variety of characters that show off his talent. White moved to Rochester in 1997 and has since had work showcased in Western New York, Long Island, and New York City. His ongoing project, “The Colors of the Urban Landscape” brings together his love for both the city and color. “Rochester (and Other) Landmarks” will feature White’s photographs of Rochester (and some of NYC) with Chico’s incredible ability to make walls come alive, including murals of important people from Rochester’s history such as Susan B. Anthony and George Eastman.

Art Perception of people and place “A World Apart” and “Another America” THROUGH MAY 25
“Of Time and Buildings” THROUGH JUNE 8 GEORGE EASTMAN HOUSE, 900 EAST AVE. TUESDAY-SATURDAY 10 A.M.-5 P.M., SUNDAY 11 A.M.-5 P.M.| $5-$12 | 371-3361; EASTMANHOUSE.ORG [ REVIEW ] BY REBECCA RAFFERTY
In the Eastman House’s Entrance Gallery, 23 images make up “Of Time and Buildings,” an exhibit exploring the relationship between images of our constructed world and how we experience place. Inevitable, unstoppable shift is a theme throughout the show, depicted both physically and metaphorically. James Casebere’s “Monticello #3” is a quiet interior image of a model of Thomas Jefferson’s Virginia home and plantation. The model is dimmed and “flooded” with clear resin, empty of ornament except for the great clock used to bind the hours of his slaves. The work simultaneously alludes to the personal experiences of the primary author of the Declaration of Independence, and those bound to his household, and the eroding tides of historic memory. Jeff Chien-Hsing Liao creates collages of another sort by digitally combining many layers of photographed people on the streets into one image. Liao’s massive “Flatiron Building” print is positioned on the wall at a height that has viewers looking down at the people, as if we are floating slightly above them. A tangible pulse is present through the combination of moonlight bouncing off the building, a burst of street and city lights, and the activity on the streets. In an interesting contrast, Liao’s “Flatiron Building (during Hurricane Sandy)” captures nearly the same scene under the famous blackout and an angry-dark sky, with only car headlights brightening the scene. Regardless, some people linger on the street, including one enigmatic man, wearing a crown and holding a mask, accompanied by a smiling woman. 32 CITY MAY 7-13, 2014
Two of Feng Bin’s untitled works from her “Hutong at Night” series capture Beijing’s ancient narrow alleys which linked homes to a shared water well and courtyard. These works serve as haunting afterimages for the non-existent: many of the dwellings have since been demolished to make way for wider, automobile-friendly thoroughfares — in particular the buildings seen here were demolished in the wake of the 2008 Olympics.

Between 2001 and 2004, Robert Weingarten photographed Amish communities in Indiana, Iowa, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, and Wisconsin, beginning with Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, where a large Amish community has been since the 1720’s.

Looking at Simon Rich you wouldn’t believe he graduated from high school, let alone be almost 30 years old. But boyish charm aside, this guy has some serious talent. At the age of 23, Rich became one of the youngest writers for Saturday Night Live, and has been a frequent contributor to the New Yorker’s “Shouts and Murmurs” column for years. Rich has also written five books — or “pamphlets,” as he refers to them because of their short lengths — including “Ant Farm and other Desperate Situations,” “Elliot Allagash,” and his latest, “The Last Girlfriend on Earth.” Rich claims to have been obsessed with writer Roald Dahl since he was 5 years old and attempts to rip him off as much as humanly possible. Rich writes with such upbeat and clever ambiance, you’ll be making room on your bookcase next to Kurt Vonnegut in no time. Rochester Arts & Lectures will host Simon Rich on Thursday, May 8, at the Downtown United Presbyterian Church, 121 N. Fitzhugh Street. 7:30 p.m. Standing room only tickets are $15 on a first-come, first-served basis, beginning at 6:45 p.m. For more information, visit Artsandlectures.org. — BY TAYLOR WHITE

THEATER | BEAUTY AND THE BEAST
The fairy tale story of “Beauty and the Beast” has been around since 1740, when Gabrielle-Suzanne Barbot de Villeneuve first published her rendition.

The show features the Disney animated film’s Academy Award winning score with music by Alan Menken and lyrics by Howard Ashman and Tim Rice. Beauty and the Beast will run from Tuesday, May 13, through Sunday, May 18, at RBTL’s Auditorium Theatre, 885 E. Main Street.

The tangled web he weaves “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” (PG-13), DIRECTED BY MARK WEBB NOW PLAYING [ REVIEW ] BY GEORGE GRELLA
The new entry in the seemingly endless series of films emanating from the Marvel Comics factory demonstrates once again the level of maturity that the film industry expects from its target audience and also presumably the sort of content those audiences expect in today’s cinema. “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” — actually the second volume in the second trilogy of the ongoing arachnoid adventures — pretty much repeats everything

from the previous movies, hardly advancing the action, the characters, or the themes, such as they are, of the grand saga. The movie opens with yet another expository retelling of the Peter Parker story, this time showing his scientist father (Campbell Scott) abandoning his beloved son to the care of his Aunt May (Sally Field) for mysterious reasons, then engaging in a deadly physical struggle aboard a corporate jet. The action then shifts to the present day, when on his way to his high school graduation Peter (Andrew Garfield) saves a number of New Yorkers, including a great many policemen, from an insane terrorist (Paul Giamatti) driving an armored truck loaded with plutonium, obviously intent on creating some disharmony in midtown Manhattan. That event initiates the familiar series of Spider-Man’s dramatic rescues, stopping speeding vehicles, snatching people from harm’s way, wrapping bad guys in his patented webs, and so on. Aside from that predictable material, most of the movie revolves around the Osborn Company, owned by Peter’s friend Harry Osborn
Addressing the social stigma of mental illness, providing a message of hope that recovery is possible
(Dane DeHaan), formerly the employer of his father, the current employer of his girlfriend, Gwen (Emma Stone), the source of all the film’s plots, and the birthplace of the antagonists. Peter’s father first created the substance that transformed his son while working in the Osborn laboratory; a nerdy techie named Max Dillon (Jamie Foxx) metamorphoses into a monster called Electro in the Osborn building; and drippy Harry turns himself into our old friend, the Green Goblin, in the same lab. In a city that somehow survives the destruction regularly created by superheroes and their adversaries in a dozen blockbusters, the bad guys wreak their usual havoc —Spidey once again neutralizes the crazy terrorist, this time inhabiting a huge armored robot, and fights an epic battle with Electro, ultimately turning him into Explodo. The Green Goblin flies in near the end, creating a tragic circumstance for the web guy, and clearly promising to pop up in the next flick, which should please millions of fans. Of all the Marvel Comics heroes, Spider-Man
appeals the most to young boys, who dream of possessing a secret identity, defeating bullies, rescuing pretty young women from evil, while swooping and soaring gracefully through the canyons of a great city. At the same time the character’s adolescent angst, his sense of abandonment, his colossal self-pity, his emotional vulnerability provide an appropriate model with which young people can easily identify.

The tragically hip “Only Lovers Left Alive” (R), DIRECTED BY JIM JARMUSCH OPENS FRIDAY AT THE LITTLE THEATRE AND PITTSFORD CINEMA [ REVIEW ] BY ADAM LUBITOW
Beyond all the usual chases, shootouts, fireworks, stunts, and the sort of optical effects that make Spidey’s movements graceful and thrilling, the people hardly stand out. Andrew Garfield possesses considerably more presence than the wispy Tobey Maguire, but nobody else transcends the shallow characterization of the comic books. A couple of the actors, notably Paul Giamatti and Dane DeHaan, compensate for their limited dimensions by overacting outrageously. On the other hand, “Spider-Man 2” may be the weepiest of all the franchise, positively awash in tears. Peter Parker cries over his parents’ abandonment, then when he discovers the truth of their devotion, and again when tragedy strikes at the end of his adventure. Aunt May cries when she speaks of her difficult life, the loss of her husband Ben, the sacrifices she made in raising Peter, and when admitting a certain understandable bitterness about the whole damned situation. All the tugging at the heartstrings seems quite inappropriate for a comic book blockbuster. Finally, for such an entirely predictable story, which should offer absolutely no surprises to SpiderMan fans, the script crams in a bundle of plots, as if the filmmakers worried that a straightforward adventure with all the usual spectacular material simply wasn’t quite enough. As a result, the characters and plots keep accumulating, some of them without much explanation or any sense of continuity and connection — despite their appeal, Spidey and Green Goblin somehow need something more.
Leave it to Jim Jarmusch, the director who gave film audiences the “psychedelic western,” 1995’s “Dead Man,” and the gangster/samurai hybrid, “Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai,” to find a way to put his own unique stamp on that most trendy of cinematic monsters: the vampire. In “Only Lovers Left Alive,” Jarmusch finds a way to shake off the recently accumulated residue of too many sparkly, lovesick bloodsuckers by recontextualizing the supernatural creatures as the ultimate hipsters. More than just a killer joke, it’s a conceit of undeniable logic — after all, when you’ve been alive for centuries, you’ve liked just about everything before it was cool. Tom Hiddleston and Tilda Swinton play Adam and Eve, a vampire couple who’ve been married for centuries, but are currently living apart. Adam is living a reclusive life holed up in an abandoned mansion on the outskirts of Detroit, while Eve is in Tangiers hanging out with famed
Tom Hiddleston and Tilda Swinton in “Only Lovers Left Alive.” PHOTO COURTESY SONY PICTURES CLASSICS
playwright Christopher Marlowe (John Hurt). Adam spends his time writing experimental rock music and collecting vintage guitars with the help of his eagerto-please assistant, Ian (Anton Yelchin, of J.J. Abrams’ “Star Trek”). But over time his world-weary nature has devolved into a deep depression, which has in turn recently blossomed some occasionally suicidal tendencies. Maybe he’s just been on his own for too long. True companions, even from opposite sides of the world, Eve senses that her lover is in need and immediately rushes to join him in America. As with most of Jarmusch’s films, narrative takes a back seat to character and tone. There’s not much in the way of plot; the movie is content to be a simple slice-of-life tale — albeit an undead one. A story (of sorts) emerges only once Eve’s troublemaking younger sister, Ava (Mia Wasikowska, “Alice in Wonderland”) appears. An oblivious agent of chaos, she provides an interruption to Adam and Eve’s comfortably laconic existence. Despite the presence of vampires, I wouldn’t qualify “Only Lovers Left Alive” as a horror film, but while its languid pacing and moody tone keep it from becoming the rollicking good time the premise of “rock ‘n’ roll” vampires might suggest, it’s still cool and witty in its laid-back way. The tone may be poetic and melancholy, but it’s injected with a droll, deadpan sense of humor that offers a surprising amount of laughs for those on its wavelength. Less interested in the horror of their existence, Jarmusch is more concerned with using the supernatural creatures to offer perspective on our society as seen through their eyes. He explores what it might actually be like to exist as a vampire. What do you do to fill all that time you’ve got on your hands? In the case of Eve and Adam, they’ve developed an insatiable thirst for knowledge, devouring art, literature, history, and culture with all the enthusiasm
of those who have all the time in the world to appreciate it. They often refer to humanity as “zombies,” with the implication being that our species are the ones sleepwalking our way through our lives, oblivious to the mess we’re making of things. It’s evident to the vampires that the wonders of the world are wasted on us. We’ve ruined our bodies and our environment so much that they can’t even feed on us anymore. Adam pays a doctor (Jeffrey Wright, in a small but memorable role) at a nearby hospital to provide him with a steady supply of blood, though that seems as much about avoiding the bother of dealing with the logistics of cleanup after a feeding as it is about our contaminated blood. But the idea that humans are the ones who are a danger to the vampires is an idea that effectively generates a surprising sympathy for the predators, making them the vulnerable ones. Swinton and Hiddleston are great together. They give their relationship pathos, easily creating a sense that there’s a hundred lifetimes worth of history between them. Swinton in particular, with her naturally ethereal presence, seems born to play a vampire. Equally as important as Swinton and Hiddleston is Marco Bittner Rosser’s exquisite production design. He creates a richly detailed world for the characters to inhabit, every inch of their environment filled with the ephemera and artistic relics they’ve collected over the centuries. Cinematographer Yorick Le Saux finds just the right way to film it all, and he consistently finds visual interest in the constant darkness. Music plays a key role in the film, and Jozef van Wissem (with Jarmusch’s band, Sqürl) contributes a fantastic, middle eastern-tinged score. It all serves the purpose of creating a moving — even sweet — depiction of an unusually long-term relationship between beings for whom love is the ultimate lifeblood.

At Home on Hazelwood Terrace
459 Hazelwood Terrace Rochester’s Homestead Heights neighborhood is close to just about everything. Culver Road is the area’s main street, which gets you to Wegmans, Tops Market, Savoia Pastry Shop, Johnny’s Irish Pub, Merchants Grill, and countless top-quality diners and pizza shops. But Homestead Heights is also a destination; a place to walk through one of Rochester’s best-preserved neighborhoods. Hazelwood Terrace is one of the nicest streets in Homestead Heights. The vista down this mature tree-lined street suggests a quieter life from another time. A well-cared-for boulevard of mostly private homes, Hazelwood Terrace has a history of long-term homeowners who raised entire families here. The care they lavished on these fine single family homes is evident even now, nearly 100 years since this neighborhood was founded. The home at 459 Hazelwood Terrace shares the neighborhood legacy. A beautifully scaled house lavished with Craftsman style detailing, 459 has been loved and cared for by the families who have called this home. The warm gumwood trim has never been painted; it glows. The many leaded glass windows bring art into every room. Original brass door hardware throughout the house is just as complete as it is elaborate. Premium quarter-sawn white oak floors say that this home’s original owner selected only the best. The original shingle and clapboard siding has been carefully maintained. It was recently painted a pleasing combination of rust, gold, and caramel. Generous over-
hangs shade the bedrooms, dormers, and front porch and help to keep rain at bay. Upon entering, the living room fireplace commands your attention. A heavy gumwood mantle with brackets sits atop the brick fireplace. Built-in shelving with glass doors and an adjacent storage bench lend beauty and practicality. A half wall with a tapered Craftsman style column frames the dining room with its beamed ceiling and leaded glass windows, which are cleverly arranged to accommodate a buffet. The kitchen has been opened up to allow a generously-sized eating area, while still retaining the oak and glass pantry. That pantry adds additional counter space and even includes a pull-out bin for large sacks of vegetables. At the top of the stairs you’ll find a linen closet with built-in drawers. There are three good sized bedrooms, and the original master bedroom has a walk-in closet. The present owners, however, use a back bedroom as the master. Off that bedroom, a former sleeping porch has been enclosed and renovated as a generous dressing room and closet. At 459 Hazelwood Terrace, you’ll find a home that welcomes you just as it has earlier families. Listed at $72,900, this 1917 beauty with 1,458 square feet will make you feel right at home. Call Jeffrey Scofield, listing agent with RE/MAX Plus, at (585) 279-8200, to arrange a showing. by Tim Reynolds Tim is a writer and Landmark Society volunteer who lives in Rochester’s Park Avenue neighborhood.

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.

Fun [ NEWS OF THE WEIRD ] BY CHUCK SHEPHERD
“Oooooo! Aaaaahhh! Eh?”
The Canadian Radio-television & Telecommunications Commission in March reprimanded three pornography broadcast stations — not for excessively erotic fare, but for violating Canada’s protectionist, patriotic rules requiring that at least 35 percent of all content be of Canadian origin. According to its notice, the 24-hour AOV Adult Movie Channel, XXX Action Clips, and Maleflixxx were falling short of the 8 1/2 hours a day of north-of-theborder sex action (and, in an additional charge, were failing to provide enough closed captioning to accompany the “Yeah’s” and “Oh, baby’s”).
— Drunk Logic: Wendy Simpson, 25, explaining her DUI arrest during a March incident in Huddersfield, England, pointed out that she had just minutes earlier walked to a McDonald’s for a late-night meal because she knew she was too inebriated to drive. However, the dining room was closed, and she was refused service at the drive-thru window because she was on foot, and, she said, the only option left for her was to go home, get her car and return to the drive-thru. On the way back, she was arrested. — Efren Carrillo, a member of the board of supervisors of California’s Sonoma County, was charged with misdemeanor “peeking” last year in Santa Rosa after he, returning home from a club late at night, saw his female neighbor’s light on and decided to drop in on her (though he did not even know her name). He had knocked at her back patio door, carrying beers, but was dressed awkwardly, leading the woman to call 911. “In retrospect,” the county
supervisor told police afterward, “I should have had my pants on” (instead of just his socks and underwear). (His trial was underway at press time.) — Among the arguments offered in March by Darrious Mathis’ lawyers for his jury trial in Cobb County, Georgia, (for assault, kidnapping, and carjacking) was the assertion that Mathis needed no force in order to have sex with the female victim on the night in question — because Mathis is such a good-looking man. (However, the jury was not so dazzled and convicted him on all charges.)
The Litigious Society
— A columnist for the Egyptian newspaper Al-Yawm Al-Sabi proposed in March that Egypt sue Israel in international court for reparations for the 10 Biblical plagues cast from Hebrew curses, including boils, lice, locusts, and turning the Nile River into blood. Ahmad al-Gamal asserted that Israelites swiped gold, silver, and other precious items as they began their legendary desert wandering. Al-Gamal also wants reparations from Turkey (for the 16th-century Ottoman invasion), France (for Napoleon’s invasion in 1798), and Britain (for 72 years of occupation). — A California model, Elizabeth Dickson, filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles in March against Playboy Enterprises for an injury she suffered as a guest on a Playboy Channel cable TV show in 2012 when she allowed host Kevin Klein to tee a golf ball off of her rear end. According to the $500,000 lawsuit, Klein took a swing at the ball that was teed between her cheeks, missed, and struck her buttocks hard, causing her “pain, suffering, worrying, and anxiety.”
[ LAST WEEK’S SOLUTION ON PAGE 43 ]
[ LOVESCOPE ] BY EUGENIA LAST ARIES (March 21-April 19): Lay your cards on the table when it comes to personal relationships. You can make emotional moves that will improve your personal life and the way you live. Passion is on the rise, and showing affection will bring you closer to someone you want to spend your life with. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Don’t be too vocal or possessive when it comes to love. Sending a signal that is too obvious will backfire. A mysterious, secretive approach to love will capture interest and entice someone special to your side. Reverse psychology will help you become the one who is pursued.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Humanitarian actions will bring someone special to your side. Don’t be too quick to settle for the first person showing interest. You are likely to have more than one suitor and may find it difficult to stick to one person. Develop friendships to ensure you make the right choice. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Appearances will lead to false assumptions. Ask questions and dig into someone’s background before you make a motion to get up close and personal. A difference of opinion is likely to erupt, leaving you in an awkward position. Don’t make a date until you are sure it’s worth your while.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Get out and have some fun. Don’t feel pressured to give your heart to anyone. Enjoy the moments you have with different people you meet while pursuing interests that bring you joy. Don’t feel obliged to be with someone who comes from the same background. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Someone is likely to charm you, but don’t feel you have to make an impression by spending money or doing something indulgent or extravagant. If someone you like doesn’t accept you for who you are instead of what you have to offer, chances are good you are being used.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Too many choices will lead to a romantic problem. Refrain from leading anyone on. Just because you cannot make up your mind doesn’t mean you should play with someone’s heart. It’s OK to date multiple people as long as you are honest about it. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Don’t play with fire. Avoid getting involved with anyone you work with or for. Stick to partners who share unusual interests or live a similar lifestyle. Forceful action will not lead to a happy ending. Look for the individual you feel is most in sync with you. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21):
Make changes to your personal appearance or lifestyle that will attract attention. Everyone wants to be with someone who is fun to be with, and that gives you an edge when it comes to love. Your ability to pursue someone in a playful, witty way will reel in a perfect partner. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Don’t be fooled by someone trying to impress you. Ulterior motives are apparent and can lead to a dent in your reputation or status. Keep your distance from anyone trying to tempt or entice you to engage in activities that have the potential to cost you emotionally, financially or physically.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You are likely to experience a change of heart when it comes to someone from your past. Revisit an old relationship and consider what you may be able to salvage. A fresh start with some ground rules in place can lead to a long-lasting relationship full of new possibilities. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Get out, expand your interests and have some fun, but don’t feel you have to make a commitment or promise to anyone you meet along the way. You are best to see what’s available and consider what’s being offered before you make a decision that can confine your freedom.
