Worlds collide on walls: Wall/Therapy Symbolically, walls stand to divide space, to enclose people and property. But for Dr. Ian Wilson and the network of medical professionals, artists, and volunteers he has organized around Rochester’s annual Wall\ Therapy street-art festival, walls stand for something more. Through that initiative, walls have the capability to unite communities on local and global scales. Wall\Therapy efforts officially started in 2011. Since then more than a dozen local murals have been created by more than 20 international and local
artists. These works grace the largely empty walls of Rochester; you can currently see murals from the project in the areas surrounding the Rochester Public Market and the St. Paul Quarter. Leading up to this year’s Wall\Therapy event, which will see artists painting July 19-28, City caught up with Wilson, who reflected on the endeavor so far, previewed the festival line-up of artists, and discussed how they are preparing to shift the medicalphilanthropy side of the endeavor to the forefront.

I take issue with one of the more outrageous claims made in Ken Maher’s letter blaming Democrats in the state legislature for the defeat of the Women’s Equality Act (Feedback, July 3). Maher claims the bill died because New York voters did not support the provision in the WEA dealing with abortion, and Republican senators understood that and voted accordingly. That’s a supersized whopper. In fact, a Quinnipiac University poll conducted in June showed that close to 70 percent of New York State voters supported that provision. As Bruce Gyory pointed out recently in City & State, “Over the past three decades, when you distill the polling data, the prolife share of the New York State electorate has dwindled from roughly 40 percent to about a 25 percent share.” As they head into next year’s election, all this should be disquieting news for the Republicans in the State Senate, a k a the ones who were actually responsible for killing the WEA. A prescient observer recently summed up the Republican senators’ predicament this way: “If a candidate threatens women’s choices, the female body has ways to shut that down.” It’s called voting.

Crossing guards * NO PROMISES
JULY 10-16, 2013
A recent letter brought up the issue of pedestrian right-of-way in a crosswalk (“Crosswalk Dangers,” Feedback). Here’s the law when crossing a street or highway, according to www.safeny.ny.gov: “(a) When traffic-control signals are not in place or not in operation the driver of a vehicle shall yield the right of way,
slowing down or stopping if need be to so yield, to a pedestrian crossing the roadway within a crosswalk on the roadway upon which the vehicle is traveling, except that any pedestrian crossing a roadway at a point where a pedestrian tunnel or overpass has been provided shall yield the right of way to all vehicles. “(b) No pedestrian shall suddenly leave a curb or other place of safety and walk or run into the path of a vehicle which is so close that it is impractical for the driver to yield. “(c) Whenever any vehicle is stopped at a marked crosswalk or at any unmarked crosswalk at an intersection to permit a pedestrian to cross the roadway, the driver of any other vehicle approaching from the rear shall not overtake and pass such stopped vehicle.” Part (b) poses a question as to what constitutes “suddenly” stepping out into traffic. I’ve never assumed that this law means one can simply stroll out into busy traffic and expect all the cars to come screeching to a stop (and I’m not accusing the letter writer of doing that). The law seems to suggest some judgment is expected on the part of the pedestrian regarding how close oncoming cars are and how “impractical” it may be for them to stop. No one in a car wants to hit a pedestrian. Both parties need to exercise caution and courtesy. JAMES DIERKS
I work with people who are blind or visually impaired, instructing them on safe travel skills (using the long cane, taking buses, crossing streets), and I have seen my share of bad drivers, distracted drivers, and drivers who just don’t seem to care that there are pedestrians around them. When I am teaching my clients about safe street crossings, I say the same thing: “As a pedestrian, you generally have the right of way. As a blind pedestrian, you almost have more right of way, but that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t be smart about it. Crossing at a controlled intersection is the safest way to go, because drivers are, more likely than not, going to stop for a stop sign or a red light. Crossing in the middle of the intersection,
even with a crosswalk where the state law dictates that the drivers stop is putting yourself in danger because really, the only thing that is making them stop is YOU.” I had a totally blind client in the village of Brockport who wanted to cross over Main Street at a midblock crosswalk, and I strongly recommended against it, for the reasons listed above. But I don’t think she quite got it until we were in my car, after our lesson, when I stopped at one of those crosswalks to let a pedestrian cross, and almost got struck by a driver in a car coming up fast behind me, who wasn’t paying attention. These mid-block crosswalks are all over the area – I can think of ones in Fairport, Pittsford, Brockport, Canandaigua – and all of the ones I am thinking of are no more than 50 yards away from a controlled intersection. Yes, it’s the law for drivers to stop for pedestrians in the crosswalk, but we all know that doesn’t mean that it will happen. My suggestion is that rather than standing your ground, to be smart about it, walk a little further, and get to where you need to go, rather than take a ride in an ambulance. MEGHAN O’BRIEN

Snowden and the media
On “The Misadventures of Edward Snowden,” News Blog: I would counter by saying that the mainstream media, undeniably in bed with the federal government, has deliberately crafted and downplayed the Snowden story to focus on him in an effort to deflect attention from the real issues of “government overreach.” This is not a failure of Snowden’s, but a victory of the media-government complex.

GUEST COMMENT | BY DAVID CAY JOHNSTON
Passing the bucks: Cuomo’s latest give-away Governor Andrew Cuomo’s tax-free zones at state universities are just the latest move to create politically favored businesses and insulate their owners from the rigors of market competition. Cuomo and others in both parties who back such laws say they spur entrepreneurs. What they are really doing is creating an enlarged body of business owners who depend on the largesse of the voters and, thus, become political dependents. His new law undermines market economics and promotes corporate socialism, in which profits are privatized and costs are socialized. Had Cuomo proposed this law in, say, 1979, the year his father Mario became governor, it would have been regarded as a major political scandal. By 2008, the enemies of market economics were so triumphant that the George W. Bush administration bailed out Wall Street after willfully blinding itself to massive fraud by mortgage marketers, as did the Obama administration. Cuomo’s plan redistributes wealth upwards, showing that he is no Democrat in the traditional sense that Democrats care about working people. Rather, Cuomo is part of the growing cadre of politicians whose success depends on being vetted by Wall Street and who win acceptance because they work to tax the many to benefit the already rich few. These political dependents differ from children, the disabled, the sick, and the elderly who collect benefits from the state. The rich dependents make campaign donations and find jobs when needed for politicians’ friends and family – legalized kickbacks that are a bargain compared to the welfare they collect. Nationwide, state and local gifts and subsidies to business cost $70 billion or more annually. That is $900 each year for a family of four. New York taxpayers are being forced to give $1.4 billion to microchip maker GlobalFoundries, owned by the hereditary ruler of Abu Dhabi, Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan. Your cost: $71. Alcoa will collect $5.6 billion in state subsidies over 50 years, costing you $284. Contrast these giveaways with Cuomo’s refusal to investigate cheating by real-estate partnerships that cost the state up to $700 million per year in taxes. The Cuomo administration claims that it chases these cheats, yet not a single document in the public record supports this. Instead, the record reveals audits focusing on cheating by out-of-state investors, meaning people less likely to be Cuomo donors.
Had Cuomo proposed this law in, say, 1979, the year his father Mario became governor, it would have been regarded as a major political scandal.” The Wall Street Journal opinion pages, Forbes Magazine, and the Heritage Foundation all encourage corporate welfare and policies that insulate the biggest businesses from the rigors of market competition. Corporate welfare is a failure. Three decades of data show zero factual support for the proposition that taking from the many to give to the rich benefits all. If corporate welfare worked, we would be drowning in jobs. Instead we have chronic long-term unemployment. The average income of the 90 percent of American taxpayers in 2011 was 13 percent smaller than in 1973. Since 1999, the median wage – half make more, half less – has been stuck at a little north of $500 per week, while the number of jobs has grown at a small fraction of population increases. Under the Cuomo giveaway law, businesses located on favored parcels of land owned by the state universities (land already exempt from property taxes) will earn taxfree profits. “By tax-free, I mean really, really tax-free,” Cuomo said recently. Workers at these businesses would be exempt from state income taxes. That will put downward pressure on wages as owners try to capture part of the tax savings. They can do this by delaying raises and letting inflation work in the owners’ favor. Business owners who cannot operate from these parcels are disadvantaged because they and their workers will be taxed. continues on page 7 rochestercitynewspaper.com

Cop’s bullet struck bystander
Ballistics testing showed that the bullet that struck and seriously injured Henrietta resident Gene McDougal was fired by a Rochester police officer. McDougal was an innocent bystander during a June 27 shootout between Sgt. Flamur Zenelovic and homicide suspect Ralph Strong on the city’s northeast side. Zenelovic and Strong were also struck by gunfire. All three are recovering. Strong was wanted in connection with a double shooting on Central Avenue earlier in June. He has pleaded not guilty to two charges of first-degree murder in the Central Avenue shootings.
Home purchasing assistance from district The Rochester school district will offer a new benefit to employees in the 2013 to 2014 school year. The RCSD will provide a $3,000 grant for a down payment or closing costs for the purchase of a city home. District employees can also apply for an additional $3,000 grant with the City of Rochester, which is available to first-time buyers of city homes.
Both programs are intended to encourage employees of the district and the city to stay and invest in the city.
New name for AIDS Care
AIDS Care, a Rochester-area nonprofit that has been providing medical and social care to people living with HIV, has changed its name to Trillium Health. While HIV care will still be provided, the agency has reorganized around improving LGBT health. Trillium serves patients in Rochester, the Finger Lakes, and the Southern Tier. More information: www.trilliumhealth.
Schumer pushes for lake funding
Senator Chuck Schumer stopped in Rochester to push legislation to increase funding for Great Lakes beaches. He’s sponsoring legislation that would restore $9.9 million for water quality testing and monitoring programs, and legislation to provide $475 million for the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative. Schumer also pushed for Congress to pass funding for other Great Lakes cleanup projects, such as removing contaminated sediment.

Round two for Pittsford project The Westport Crossing project in the Village of Pittsford is set for another flare up. The developer, a subsidiary of Mark IV Enterprises, has proposed a maximum 167-unit apartment complex with a restaurant at 75 Monroe Avenue. But the developer now wants to make changes significant enough to require another sign off from the village board, says Pittsford Mayor Bob Corby. The prior plan already had the board’s approval. Chris DiMarzo, chief operating officer for Mark IV, says the new plan is better because it contains
fewer buildings, has better internal circulation, and cuts down on the amount of paved surface in the project. The new conceptual plan reflects input from residents and village officials, he says. The company has eliminated one building from the plan, moved the larger buildings to the back of the site, and moved the restaurant to the front of the site, DiMarzo says. The restaurant’s seating capacity and the number of apartments would not change under the new proposal, he says. But there’s a chance the village board won’t go along with the new plan. Corby says he prefers the plan
the board approved last year (which he voted against). He says the new plan has bulkier buildings and moves the pool from the interior of the site to the waterfront, which detracts from the public feel the development is supposed to have. Corby says he’s also concerned about changes to the landscaping. The plantings in the previous proposal were meant to offset the buildings’ bulk. If the village board rejects the new proposal, the company would move ahead with the previous plan, DiMarzo says. The board could vote as early as this week.

Jobs training program falls short Residents, parents, and educators consistently urge the city and the Rochester school district to do more to prepare young people who aren’t college-bound for careers in the trades. Many Rochester residents who are chronically unemployed — often women, African Americans, and Latinos — could benefit from the training, too. Reaching Occupational Achievement for Residents in Rochester, a program launched more than a year ago, was supposed to help address the problem. More than 1,000 residents signed up for the six-month job preparation program, says City Council member Loretta Scott, but only 156 trainees made it to the end. “I’ve found that if you can get people employed, it alleviates a lot of other problems,” Scott says. “So I’ve been tracking it. And I was told that only about 43 of them are employed today. That’s less than one-third.” Scott says it’s unclear why so few of ROAR’s initial applicants graduated, and then why so few of the graduates are employed. And she says she’s frustrated by the lack of follow-through on a program that began with so much promise. ROAR was created by the Rochester Joint Construction Board to recruit city residents for
construction jobs on the $325 million first phase of the schools modernization project. ROAR’s proponents say that electricians, carpenters, painters, masons, and plumbers Loretta Scott. are paid well, and that FILE PHOTO the jobs typically can’t be outsourced. And while the massive rehabilitation of city school district buildings did create some jobs, Scott says, there were also unanticipated challenges. “Our system was not prepared to absorb that many people at one time,” she says. “The project was not far enough along. And they all have different trades — electricians, painters, carpenters — and they’re not all needed at the same time. It was a workflow issue.” Scott says she has no evidence that contractors and local labor unions were not hiring minorities. “I think the problem was that this was not well thought out,” Scott says.

City Council President and mayoral candidate Lovely Warren rolled out her economic plan last week during a press conference at her west-side headquarters. | Warren’s plan includes creating a Rochester Industrial Development Agency to guarantee jobs for city residents, pursuing social impact bonds to help deal with Rochester’s serious social problems, creating a small business center, and adopting measures to increase transparency and promote sustainability. | Warren said her biggest criticism of her opponent, incumbent Mayor Tom Richards, is that he hasn’t done enough to create jobs for city residents. Unemployment in the City of Rochester is higher than unemployment in the county as a whole. Unemployment in the Rochester metro area was 7 percent in May, compared to 9.3 percent in the City of Rochester, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. | Warren’s plan also addresses housing and aging in place — measures to help aging residents stay in their homes as long as possible. | The Richards campaign called Warren’s plan a “collection of random ideas from a politician who has never created a private sector job in her life.” | Warren and Richards will square off in a Democratic primary on Tuesday, September 10.

Historic Gannett building for sale Standing next to the Gannett building at 55 Exchange Boulevard, it’s immediately clear that the building is a monument to another time. Built in the late 1920’s by Gannett founder Frank Gannett, the building’s neoClassical style exudes the authority and power of newspapers during their golden age. The building, which Frank Gannett constructed to house the newsroom and operations of the long-gone Times Union and now serves as the Democrat and Chronicle’s office, was recently put on the market. The asking price for the 154,000-square-foot building is reportedly just shy of $5 million. The Gannett building is the latest in a long string of Rochester’s iconic downtown buildings to end up on the sales block. The big questions now are who will buy it? And how will it be used? Savvy developers have purchased many of these downtown buildings for re-use, but other buildings have lingered on the market for years, often sitting vacant. The Gannett building is in an area of downtown that has traditionally been home to large institutional structures like government offices, churches, and financial companies. But the building is probably not best suited for office space, says Heidi Zimmer-Meyer, president of the Rochester Downtown Development Corporation. Her company tracks downtown construction projects and redevelopment. “The office market in this region is soft,” she says. This is a reflection of the recent economic recession, she says. But it’s also because companies have fewer employees due to advances in technology and they require less space. “Commercial space has taken a real hit, not just downtown, but all over,” she says. “We don’t need more office space downtown. We need less.” Housing has been the main driver of downtown investment, she says. There are more than a dozen projects in what she calls the pipeline to completion. “Since 2000, we now have 38 buildings converted to housing that were either downtown offices or some kind of light manufacturing,” Zimmer-Meyer says. “What we call downtown is now a collection of probably 14 neighborhoods that are very distinct. And this particular neighborhood, the Four Corners area, is defined by buildings with a lot of architectural character.” 6 CITY

Converting the Gannett building to housing
The Gannett building was added to the
wouldn’t have been conceivable even five years ago, Zimmer-Meyer says, because the buildings in the area and the area itself have been somewhat institutional. Developers were wary of trying to create housing in a section of downtown that many thought was too close to the Blue Cross Arena and the Public Safety Building to attract apartment hunters. But two projects helped to change their minds, Zimmer-Meyer says. First, the former Central Trust Company building, with its 1950’s glass and metal design at 44 Exchange Boulevard was given a $6 million update. Comprised mostly of apartments, the owners embellished the building’s retro style. And a multimillion-dollar restoration converted the formerly vacant Academy building to a combination of market-rate housing and retail. Built in the late 1800’s, the Academy building is the former home of the high-end eatery, Edwards Restaurant. The Gannett building, though it appears to be in good basic condition, will require what some developers describe as a “gut to rehab,” says Zimmer-Meyer, which essentially takes much of the building down to its bare bones. “Developers have been most successful when they are respectful of the uniqueness of these buildings,” Zimmer-Meyer says. “They’ve created spaces that really take advantage of that, celebrate that, and don’t cover it with drywall or something. Exposed brick, polished floors, tall ceilings, high windows, and quirky things like gargoyles and carvings — things like this you can preserve in the redesign are what this market wants.”
National Register of Historic Places in the mid 1980’s. The original building was constructed under the supervision of Howell and Thomas, a Cleveland-based architecture firm, says Cynthia Howk, architectural research coordinator for the Landmark Society of Western New York. And well-known industrial architect Albert Kahn oversaw one of the larger additions to the building in the 1940’s. The addition housed the printing operations, Zimmer-Meyer says. “That was one of the great treats of walking through that area of downtown,” Howk says. “You could look in those great big windows and see the printing press running.” It was not unusual for cities across the country, Rochester included, to support morning and evening newspapers through much of the 20th century. And the Democrat and Chronicle’s news organization moved into the Gannett building, joining the Time Union. But the collapse of evening editions was a sign of industry changes to come. The building at 55 Exchange Boulevard served as Gannett’s corporate headquarters until the mid 1980’s, when the headquarters moved to its current Virginia location. The Democrat and Chronicle news group is looking for a new location in downtown Rochester. Though Zimmer-Meyer says she’s unaware of any developers interested in the Gannett building, she says she’s optimistic. Her organization is tracking downtown development projects totaling more than $700 million, she says, with more than half coming from private sources. The influx of private money may be the best indicator that the commercial real estate
market is on the mend, since only three years ago it was extremely difficult to find lenders for big projects. Zimmer-Meyer says that three significant projects under way are going to significantly
change downtown: Midtown Tower, the Sibley building, and Alexander Park. Plans call for converting the Sibley office tower into market-rate rental apartments and possibly senior housing. Though Buckingham Properties and Morgan Management have not yet completed the purchase of Midtown Tower, Zimmer-Meyer says that between 170 and 185 residential units are planned for that site. And Buckingham Properties plans to add new housing to Alexander Park, site of the now demolished Genesee Hospital. “We have over 5,000 people living downtown now, adding 1,900 since 2000,” Zimmer-Meyer says. “We have another 1,600 to 1,700 [projected]. I think we’re getting up to 6,700, and it’s still climbing.” All of this development has finally helped downtown reach that much anticipated tipping point when major retail would return, she says. The most significant development would be a downtown grocery store, and Zimmer-Meyer says there are three entities talking about possible locations. “Certain kinds of retail are turning their heads and taking a second look, including the grocery stores,” she says. “We’ll have to wait and see what really happens. But at least the talk is there, and for a long time it wasn’t.”

Here is a simple principle to keep in mind: If an investment is sound, the market will finance it. If it is not sound, why should taxpayers be forced to subsidize it? If we are going to subsidize businesses, then shouldn’t the taxpayers get a return on their investment? How about shares of stock paying dividends until taxpayers are repaid? A better idea than Cuomo’s corporate welfare is a level playing field that makes investment in New York more attractive. The legislature could repeal the state corporate income tax, which applies mostly to small business. All business taxes raise about 11 percent of state revenue, the basic corporate income tax 4 percent. The legislature could make up for that 4 percent with less corporate welfare and higher taxes on very rich New Yorkers, who in turn own most of the capital. How about closing loopholes through which very rich New Yorkers put their assets in trusts? How about taxing money borrowed against untaxed gains? Why let managers of hedge and private equity funds defer their fees, paying their taxes by-and-by? And then there are those real estate cheats. The problem is that there is no lobby for this, no organization of principled business owners who will shower politicians with donations in return for promoting competitive markets. In 1846 we enacted an absolute ban
on gifts of money, or even credit, to corporations. Article VII, Section 8 of the New York state constitution states that “the money of the state shall not be given or loaned to or in aid of any private corporation or association, or private undertaking; nor shall the credit of the state be given or loaned to or in aid of any individual, or public or private corporation or association, or private undertaking.” In adopting the state constitutions of 1874 and 1938 and rejecting a new one in 1967, we reaffirmed that ban, all by 2-to-1 votes. The gift to the sheikh – $1 million plus per promised job – was challenged in court by 50 taxpayers, an amalgam that included liberals and libertarians, Republicans and Democrats. Barbara Underwood, the state solicitor general, argued in court that these were not gifts but monetary tools “to promote the New York economy.” New York’s highest court ruled in November 2011 that these gifts were perfectly legal. So how did Judge Theodore Jones, who wrote the decision, along with Chief Judge Jonathan Lippman and Judges Carmen Beauchamp Ciparick, Victoria A. Graffeo,
and Susan Phillips get around the voters saying no, no, no and no? They ruled that while the state “may not lend its credit to a public corporation,” nothing “prohibits the State from adopting appropriations directed to” intermediaries, who can then give the money, or credit, to private corporations. In other words, what the state cannot do directly it can do by passing the money through an entity it creates. That is not just absurd, it makes a mockery of our state constitution. In dissent, Judge Eugene Pigott meticulously deconstructed the errors of logic and willful blindness of the majority. He quoted the great jurist Benjamin Cardozo in a case declaring that gifts to World War I veterans violated the no-gifts clause. Judge Cardozo, who supported gifts to soldiers, wrote that the ban was intended only “to put an end to the use of credit of the state in fostering the growth of private enterprise and business.” Judge Pigott said he was unimpressed by the majority argument that corporate gifts have a long history. “Unconstitutional acts do not become constitutional by virtue of repetition, custom or passage of time,” he wrote. Judge Robert S. Smith heartily endorsed Pigott’s dissent. The legislature, he wrote, “is free to disregard both received economic teachings and common sense…. But when our Legislature commits the precise folly that a provision of our Constitution was written to prevent, and this Court responds by judicially repealing the constitutional provision, I think I am entitled to be annoyed.” The GlobalFoundries ruling makes future challenges to corporate gifts virtually impossible. Now before having any opportunity to compel testimony or obtain documents, plaintiffs must prove that a gift is unconstitutional to the standard in criminal cases: beyond reasonable doubt. Eventually Cuomo, or a successor, will issue a report on the new tax-free plan. Expect ginned-up numbers claiming success. After all, Thomas DiNapoli, the state comptroller, told us in May that $2.8 billion in state and local tax breaks for businesses from 2007 though 2011 “gained” more than a million jobs at an average cost of about $2,700. The state lost 88,400 jobs during those years, Bureau of Labor Statistics data show. Corporate welfare does not work.

Fired up [ ROUND UP ] BY DAVE CHAPUS
Pollsters tell us that more than 90 percent of Americans eat pizza at least once a month, and statistically we consume some 350 slices of pizza per second. Pizza is probably as universally popular a food as there is in this great land of ours. The vast majority of that pizza is baked in gas or electric ovens, which differ from your home oven mostly in sheer size. But in line with the broader culinary trend toward more traditional, artisanal styles of cooking, recent years have seen an upsurge in the number of pizzerias using wood-fired ovens. Go back far enough in history and all pizzas, like all bread, were baked in wood-fired ovens, for the simple reason that there were no other options. But the current wood-fired renaissance isn’t just about tradition for tradition’s sake; the radiant heat and high temperatures generated by a wood fire, if utilized properly, can result in a fast-baking pizza with a slightly charred, aromatic crust, and toppings that have been cooked just enough to yield optimal flavor and texture without drying out or burning. In the Rochester area, wood-fired pizza has been around for more than a decade,
but it’s only been in the past few years that it’s really taken off. Every month or two seems to bring news of a new place opening, and for now at least, most of them seem to have taken root. Depending on how wide a geographic net you throw, the Rochester region is currently home to 20 or so woodfired pizzerias. Here’s a look at some of the best purveyors of the style. Did we leave out your favorite wood-fired pizzeria in the Greater Rochester area? Add it to the comments section of this story at rochestercitynewspaper.com. Veneto is among Rochester’s most senior
wood-fired pizzerias, having opened in Rochester’s East End in 2001. Veneto’s well charred, thin-crust pizzas range from a simple sauce-and-cheese margherita to more complex, yet well-thought-out permutations, such as a mushroom pie topped with oregano-infused oil, ovenroasted mushrooms, mozzarella, and Provolone and goat cheeses, drizzled with truffle oil. Or come up with your own combination by choosing from among Veneto’s 21 toppings. Sit at the bar of Veneto’s open kitchen if you’d like to
watch your pizza’s journey from raw dough to finished pie. (Veneto is located at 318 East Ave. For more information call 454-5444 or visit venetorestaurant.com.) Napa Wood Fired Pizzeria has two area
locations, on South Clinton Avenue and in the Perinton Hills Mall in Fairport. If you’re a believer that less is more, go with Napa’s Simply Red (housemade red sauce and cheese) or Simply White (garlic oil, fresh basil, and cheese). Feeling more adventurous? Try the Cuban, with BBQ sauce, pulled pork, ham, dill pickles, fried onions and cheese, or the Parma, with house-made garlic oil, prosciutto, artichokes, figs, goat cheese and Napa’s own five-cheese blend. (Napa Wood Fired Pizzeria is located at 573 S. Clinton Ave. and at 687 Moseley Road in Fairport. For more information call 232-8558 (Rochester) or 223-5250 (Fairport), or visit napawoodfired.com.)
On Rochester’s west side, head straight for Fiamma, where Italian-born pizzaiolo Giuseppe Paciullo puts to good use the skills he learned as a pizzamaker in his hometown of Salerno.
After spending about a minute in Fiamma’s 1000-degree oven, Fiamma’s pizzas emerge crisp, supple, aromatic, and flavorful. From the imported ingredients to the preparation, this may be as close to authentic Italian pizza as you can get without an airline ticket. (Fiamma Pizza e Vino is located at 1308 Buffalo Road in Gates. For more information call 270-4683 or visit fiammarochester.com.)
Though it technically falls outside the category of wood-fired pizza, Tony D’s Coal Fired Pizza also deserves mention. This Corn Hill restaurant is the only one in the Rochester region using a coal-fired oven, the roots of which go back not to Italy but to New York City, where early20th-century Italian immigrants developed their own style of pizza, using the more easily obtained coal rather than hardwood as their fuel. Tony D’s pizzas mostly stick to traditional Italian styles — margherita, bianca (white), and vongole (clams), among others — marked by a blackened but pliable crust. (Tony D’s Coal Fired Pizza is located at 288 Exchange Boulevard. For more information call 340-6200 or visit tonydsroc.com).

ymbolically, walls stand to divide space, to enclose people and property. But for Dr. Ian Wilson and the network of medical professionals, artists, and volunteers he has organized around Rochester’s annual Wall\Therapy street-art festival, and the medical-philanthropy organization Impact, walls stand for something other than themselves. Through those initiatives, walls have the capability to unite communities on local and global scales. Wall\Therapy efforts officially started in 2011. Since then more than a dozen local murals have been created by more than 20 international and local artists. These works grace the largely empty walls of Rochester; you can currently see murals from the project in the areas surrounding the Rochester Public Market and the St. Paul Quarter. Leading up to this year’s Wall\Therapy event, which will see artists painting July 19-28, City caught up with Wilson and Erich Lehman of 1975 Gallery, who has taken a stronger organizing role in the effort this year. They reflected on the endeavor so far, previewed the festival line-up of artists, and discussed how they are preparing to shift the medical-philanthropy side of the endeavor to the forefront. For information on and photos of the existing murals, search “Wall Therapy” at rochestercitynewspaper. com. To learn more about what’s coming up, read on. In addition to adding imagery to our Image City, the impact of Wall\Therapy artwork
has been massive and varied. School and other group tours still take place, locals and out-of-towners pose in front of the murals for amateur and professional photos shoots. The images are becoming as iconic to Rochester as other visible aspects of the city, including the buildings upon which they are painted. For example, Faith47’s Railroad Street painting of a girl with sparrows swirling around her face is the background for a promotional photo of the Rochester musical group, Gibbs & Main. But the images weren’t immediately welcomed by all. Last year, two murals in particular — Belgian artist ROA’s slumbering bears, and South African artist Faith47’s mural of a bare-breasted religious icon, both in the St. Paul corridor — created a bit of controversial buzz. Wilson describes the few negative responses in medical terms: “acute inflammation followed by quiescence. In other words, there was a vigorous reaction at first, which eventually healed. Some members of the community hadn’t seen art on this scale, so accessible and visible. And all art is a mirror. What people see in it says a lot about themselves, and I’ll continue to say that forever.” But by and large, the artwork has been well received. Lehman says: “There were people within the municipality who just enjoyed the energy that was brought to the city. Not just the art, but the fact that people were in the community having a dialogue about art, for about a month.” Lehman argues that the art has brought
people into neighborhoods that they might not otherwise visit, creating connections that might not have otherwise happened. This year, the Wall\Therapy initiative
will take place in two locations: along the El Camino Trail in the north part of the city, and through the South Wedge neighborhood in the south. Just as Wall\ Therapy broke ground in the 2012 festival focal point, the Public Market area, with the Faith47, DALeast, and Freddy Sam paintings created in the summer of 2011 on Railroad Street, the organization introduced its presence to the El Camino Trail in 2012 with murals painted on the side of the Avenue D Recreation Center by San Francisco artist Siloette and New York City artist Cern. “The El Camino Trail is an area of town we wanted to work in last year,” says Wilson. “But it turns out that there was kind of a natural gravitation toward the Market area, since there were so many walls concentrated in that area. It just seemed fitting to kind of focus our efforts mostly on the Market, and then offer an idea of things to come with the Avenue D Rec Center.” This year, Wilson and Lehman partnered with The Genesee Land Trust, in addition to Commissioner Luis Burgos and the Department of Recreation and Youth Services, in locating walls to paint and organizing the event’s presence in that area.
The inclusion of the South Wedge in this year’s festival grew out of casual conversations between property owners the Wall\Therapy organization, says Wilson. The Business Association of the South Wedge Area and the South Wedge Planning Committee, specifically Chris Jones of Historic House Parts and Duane Girdner of St. John’s Living, reached out to Lehman and Wilson independently of each other, and almost simultaneously. In addition to the main two sites, property owners Dan and Randy Morgenstern will offer walls again in the St. Paul corridor, and Foodlink has offered walls on its building on Mt. Read Boulevard. There will also likely be some work created on West Main, in the Susan B. Anthony neighborhood, and on the side of Ethiopian eatery, Natural Oasis, on Monroe Avenue. Additional sites could be added, contingent upon a variety of factors. But the team is still interested in more walls for this year and to amass an inventory for the future, says Wilson. “We can never have too many walls.” (For an updated list of this year’s Wall/ Therapy site locations visit wall-therapy.com.) “The idea is to have some of the artists swap locations mid-week, depending on how long they’ll be here in the city and depending on how fast they paint,” says Wilson. “They may be able to paint in two different sections of our city, which have two completely
different personalities.” That not only gives artists the opportunity to vary the location in which they are painting, but also for the city to have a significant amount of public art created in about a week. In addition to the added imagery, it’s an “invitation for [residents] to explore the rest of the city they live in, and to see how the two neighborhoods, north and south, are linked by this art project,” says Wilson. Even though Rochester is a relatively small city, people tend to keep to their own quadrants for the most part. The festival provides a way of bridging communities within our greater community that need connections, he says. The scope of the endeavor doubles not only
in location this year, but also in the number of artists who will paint the town. The 2013 lineup will include more than 25 artists, one-third of whom are locally based. Returning out-oftowners include South African-based artists Faith47 and DALeast, who have participated each year, and Freddy Sam, who came to Rochester in 2011 but not last summer. Also returning are Cern (NYC), and Siloette (San Francisco). German artist Case is also scheduled to return, but a conflict will keep him away until later in the year; organizers anticipate he’ll visit in August. New to this year are Binho (Brazil), DAZE (NYC), Ever (Argentina), Gaia (NYC/ Baltimore), Conor Harrington (London),

considered traditional graffiti, the roots of America graffiti, and modern street art,” says Lehman. Lady Pink, Freedom, and DAZE “are some of the original progenitors of New York City graffiti, coming to our city to paint with our local artists, to learn about our culture and our city and our crews,” he says. Baltimore-based artist Gaia will arrive a few days prior to the official festival to do a bit of Rochester research. “He’s going to do a very city-specific mural. His work tends to be very much rooted in the neighborhoods and communities he’s painting in, with a lot of historical context,” says Lehman. Some of the non-local artists being brought in have been huge inspirations for some of our artists here in town, such as Chris Stain, who is a pioneer in stencil work. Lehman is particularly excited to about the inclusion of London-based painter Conor Harrington, whose grandscale murals blend historic and contemporary elements in a kinetic, cinematic staging, and Mike Ming of Barnstormers crew, who attended school at RIT and was a huge eye-opener for Lehman regarding “what creativity is. He was a huge, huge personal influence,” he says. Legendary street-art and graffiti photographer Martha Cooper, who helped Wall\Therapy gain international attention last year, will return this year, Lehman says. “In the last year just seeing the world’s response to what we are doing here, and how wellreceived it is, is humbling and mind-blowing,” he says. “The rest of the world is seeing what
we’re seeing, and why we love this place.” Cooper’s images of Rochester’s 2012 Wall\ Therapy works were posted on her blog, which is hosted at 12ozprophet.com, and were subsequently picked up by blogs and street art culture sites around the world. “We have some established artists locally whose work was so well received that it just made sense to have them participate again,” says Wilson of stencil artists Thievin’ Stephen and Mr. Prvrt (FUA Krew), as well as shifting-shapes painter St. Monci. Other local artists to be included this year are Bile (FFL crew), Change (FUA Krew), Range (FUA Krew), Adam Francey, Lea Rizzo, and Sarah Rutherford. The latter two artists together run collaborative art space The Yards, which again functions as the “mission control” center for Wall\Therapy. Because both Yards organizers are painting in the festival this year, they plan to begin painting a bit in advance of the other artists, and extra volunteer support will be needed at The Yards. “We need as many volunteers as possible to commit for the duration of the project,” say Wilson. Organizers are still in search of people to support the artists and to provide logistic support in both the Wedge and the El Camino Trail. That includes tasks like driving artists to their mural sites, bringing them food and water, and bringing them to various eateries and areas of local interest in their free time. “To be taken under the wing of a local person just makes the experience all the more genuine and less structured,” says Wilson.
an Indiegogo community crowd-sourced funding endeavor for $30,000, and reached their goal. “Two things pushed me toward crowd-funding this year,” says Wilson. “A lot of resources have been spent personally, and I always say I couldn’t have spent that money in a better way. But it is still a significant amount that I can’t sustain year-to-year. The other bit is that last year we saw how many people supported our efforts...I think we were nominated for five categories [for City Newspaper’s Best of Rochester survey]. It really makes sense to share ownership of something this significant with a larger group of people. I think that’s the way to sustain something like this going forward — to continuously offer people who identify with the mission of this project the opportunity to support” as much as they comfortably can, he says. “With so many worthy causes vying for support, it says a lot that people are choosing to support us,” says Wilson, adding that it speaks to the Rochester community’s progressive thinking regarding patronage of the arts, and specifically the non-traditional arts. In addition to watching the artists’ progress, the community is invited to special events during the festival that will include two block parties (one in each of the main neighborhoods where the festival will take place) with music, dancing, and food on Saturday, July 20, and Thievin’ Stephen’s dance party, “Floor Therapy,” held at Skylark Lounge on Thursday, July 25. An artists’ talk at School of the Arts will be held again this year on Wednesday, July 24.
Because of the more ambitious scope of the
The medical philanthropy endeavor, Impact,
festival this year, Wilson and his team launched
for which Wall\Therapy is a promotional
tool and fundraiser, will soon take center stage, as Wilson seeks to achieve the organization’s goal of implementing medical diagnostic technology in specific third-world communities by the end of this year. Wilson traveled to Borgne, Haiti, in December 2012 as part of a delegation led by Dr. Rose-Marie Chierici, who is the founder of H.O.P.E. Haiti, a Rochester-based charity. “What I saw by putting my feet on the ground in Haiti was an amazing level of dedication by a very young staff of people to care for the community using whatever resources they have,” says Wilson. “I asked the physicians how the addition of x-ray technology would enhance their ability to care for the community,” he says, “and they said it would be like night and day, what they would be able to do diagnostically, and therapeutically.” During his trip, the difficulty of travel in Haiti became apparent to Wilson. “Outside of Port-au-Prince, infrastructure is significantly lacking in many areas,” he says. Roads to connect larger cities often times aren’t paved, and depending on the weather, can be impassible because of rock slides and other hazards. Wilson says that he traveled for hours at about 3 miles per hour over rocks and boulders to get to a cholera clinic. They crossed about three rivers in a vehicle equipped with a snorkel, as well as precarious mountain passes. “And then you realize that people actually walk that distance to get to the clinic,” he says. Wilson says he has seen sick and injured people carried by others on the doors to their houses to get to a clinic. The staff members “are already doing as much as they can, and their needs are much greater. They can’t do

any more without the support of an initiative like ours,” he says. The journey emboldened Wilson to try to get the needed medical facilities funded in this calendar year. Impact will assume a larger presence in the group’s promotional efforts after this summer’s Wall\Therapy festival is done. “We want to weave a stronger link between the medical philanthropy and the mural art this year,” he says. “The goal is to give Impact more of a presence nationally, internationally, and to get support for it. Development is the major hurdle — it’s a lot of money to raise, especially when you’re talking about two sites in conjunction.” (The other Impact site is Cox’s Bazar, in Bangladesh.) In all, the goal is to raise nearly $500,000. “Projects like Wall\Therapy continually allow us to sit down face-to-face with people who actually want to support medical philanthropy in a significant way. And those meetings are happening now,” says Wilson. “There are folks in the community who have expressed interest in helping with the, frankly, more important work of all of this,” he says. “Helping to preserve human life is infinitely more important.” Wall\Therapy seeks not only to create connections through the celebration of art, but also to expose the community to Impact, and its mission of improving the healthcare of communities in the developing world. “Every opportunity that we had to tell that story has come about because of Wall\Therapy. So Wall\Therapy is a tremendous vehicle, a catapult for telling that story,” he says. “We are going to continue to do so in a more robust way for the balance of the year and into 2014.” To that end, Wilson is planning some endeavors and events for the fall, which will include a globalgiving.org campaign. “I realized that my development strategies for
Impact were a little too provincial, too small, too shortsighted,” Wilson says. “It makes sense that support for Wall\Therapy comes from this community because it’s something that benefits this community, is visible by this community, and is something based here in Rochester.” Wilson believes it makes more sense to have a similar but more widespread approach with regard to Impact, “which from its inception, by definition, is an international project.” “The idea with the Global Giving campaign is to have the Haitian diaspora and the Bengali diaspora be able to support projects that are a benefit to their own communities from wherever they are, be they in the United States, in the United Kingdom, Asia, wherever,” says Wilson. The goal is to get one of the projects funded, if not both of them, by the end of this year. In preparation, Impact will establish a digital presence, “so that people can learn more about what we’re doing and spread the word about what we are trying to accomplish,” he says. “All the pieces of the puzzle are in place, it’s just a matter of funding.”

The Bygone Few play the Bug Jar. PHOTO BY FRANK DE BLASE
I know it’s lazy to describe a band’s sound with another band — bands as adjectives, I call it — but sometimes it’s a good kick start in the right direction. So when I tell you the new Rochester band The Bygone Few sounds like a Misfit Concrete Blonde, you’ll understand why…and hopefully accept my apology. The quartet caught me a little off guard when I saw it Tuesday, July 2, at the Bug Jar. Maybe I was used to guitarist Ryan Hurley’s upright-bassdriven psychobilly leanings (most recently in the late, heavy, fast, and sorely underrated Quartershots). What I got instead was a loud and heavy slug of dark rock ’n’ roll. Too swift to be called a dirge, but too noir to ever flirt with pop sugar. All around it was a pretty cool debut for this band, which hopefully won’t be bygone too soon. Coming at you straight outta Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, JD McPherson played an amazing set of gen-u-ine barroom rock ’n’ roll Saturday night at Abilene. The place was boiling to the brim and spilled
out on to the sidewalk, where the music ricocheted as well. Hipsters, greasers, unawares, ne’er-do-wells, Betties, boppers, freaks, and geeks all lined up to see what is one of the next great saviors of vintage and classic American music. McPherson’s guitar work was tight, tart, terse, and twangy as his band flawlessly pumped along like a casual locomotive. When not dishing out delicious originals, the band dug into the Chess catalogue to shake tails in the sardined crowd even further. Its spirited take Chuck Berry and Bo Diddley didn’t hammer on the cliché licks and rhythms, but rather the subtle flow of this unmistakable Windy City wail. Because most of the audience couldn’t see the band due to the large crowd and McPherson’s diminutive size, everything around us — the pretty girls, the duck-tailed boys, bluesers and boozers — became part of a 3-D sensory onslaught of pure rock ’n’ roll glee. Fun, fun, fun. Shazam!

A reminder of a time when rock ’n’ roll was nothing more than a raw, primal wail, the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion came back in 2012 with “Meat and Bone,” the band’s first album in eight years. Formed in 1991 in New York City out of the ashes of Pussy Galore, The Blues Explosion — frontman Jon Spencer, guitarist Judah Bauer, and drummer Russell Simins — took (and still take) all forms of classic American music, long abandoned by many musicians, and forged a new yet familiar sound. Blues, soul, rockabilly, rhythm and blues, punk are blended together, with all genres linked by a common, urgent thread. Without The Blues Explosion there would be no White Stripes or Black Keys.
Without The Blues Explosion there would be nowhere to go. Spencer got on the horn recently and gave us a blast to discuss the new album, taking chances, the Blues Explosion legacy, and how he doesn’t like the word “jamming.” An edited transcript of the conversation follows.
done in the summer of 2011. Then in October of that year we took a trip out to Benton Harbor, Michigan, to work in this fantastic studio called The Key Club. We holed up there for about nine or 10 days and tracked the record and came back home. And by January 2012 we were done with it.

What is the thrust of this new album?
took a few years off last decade. We didn’t do any work, we didn’t play any shows for a few years. Why was that?
For me I was focusing on Heavy Trash. We made three albums and did a lot of touring. What got you to fire the Blues Explosion up again?
We took a few shows here and there, we had a good time, found out we could still do it, that we could play together, and still have a good show. It felt good. So we began to take more concerts and play more frequently. This went on for a couple of years and in 2011 we began thinking about doing another studio album. Most of the writing on “Meat and Bone” was
As far as the sound of the “Meat and Bone” record, like I said before, we just felt awfully good about playing together again. So when we went in to make this record the focus was very much just us playing — the band playing these songs live in the studio. I think every record we’ve made always has that element. We start with a live recording. Granted, it’s in the studio — we play differently in the studio than we do on the stage. But it’s still a real performance. Some are calling “Meat and Bone” a classic Blues Explosion record, as if you strayed from the formula before.
Yeah, I think we’ve always stuck to our guns. At the same time I’d like to think we’ve taken some chances. We’ve done different things to experiment while making records. We’ve made
records where we got real crazy and experimental with the production or whatnot, the mixing. This one I think is lot more straightforward. It’s a savage record in a way; it’s raw, and quite raucous at times. But really it’s just, “OK, here’s the three of us and we’re making a racket.”

Just in making it, which could have been an opportunity for us to fall flat on our faces. We’re not kids anymore. We’ve been playing in this band for more than 22 years.
[ HIP-HOP/RAP ]
But it’s not like the band broke up and now is coming back together to reclaim former glory.
[ REGGAE/JAM ]
With some of our contemporaries, some of our peers, there’s a lot of talk about reunions, or bands going around and playing their classic albums. With The Blues Explosion, we never really broke up, there was no stop, so we’re not really in the same camp. There are bands that are my favorites, real hero bands. The Stooges is a good example. And as much as I love The Stooges, and as important as the band is and was to me, what I’ve heard of the new studio albums…it’s not really my bag. But I can’t begrudge them for wanting to do it, you know? So I guess speaking from a fan’s point of view, I can understand why someone might be a little suspicious to hear that The Blues Explosion was putting out a record in 2012. But I think we made a really great record, and a record that’s very much alive with energy, passion, and a lot of ideas. Yeah, I think in a way it’s a classic thing… but it’s also new in the sense that we ‘ve been doing this so long, and with all that experience comes a kind of wisdom or energy or power, and we applied that to making this record. The Blues Explosion has always struck me as a reminder for those who lose sight of what’s important in rock ’n’ roll. Why do people keep forgetting?
I think anyone going to a concert, going out to see a band and getting sweaty, that person doesn’t need to be reminded. There’s always this stuff in the media about the death of the guitar and the demise of live music and bands. I don’t think that’s ever going to go away. It’s part of who we are as animals. It fulfills a very strong need. It’s this very weird, spiritual, communal happening, going to a show. What’s your songwriting formula?
When we write together, it’s very much a collaboration as far as the music goes. I write the lyrics. We just get together and play. You could call it jamming, but I don’t like that term so much. We just get together and play and the songs just sort of come; they happen. One hundred years from now what will they say about the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion?
I hope someone will still dig it. I’ve always been knocked out by records that seem out of time, out of place. And hopefully some Blues Explosion records will be like that for some kid to puzzle over or marvel at and enjoy as well.

He will do just that on July 11 in a concert at Temple B’rith Kodesh, singing Mozart’s “Non più andrai” (“The Marriage of Figaro”) and the American song “Shenandoah.” Matthew Kraemer leads the orchestra in operatic, ballet, and Broadway selections by Offenbach, Tchaikovsky, Irving Berlin, and other composers. Also this weekend, the RPO offers its 90th Anniversary Gala, a Roaring 20’s-themed evening with music from the orchestra led by Jeff Tyzik, dinner, dancing, live and silent auctions, and lots more (Saturday, July 13, 6 p.m. at the Rochester Riverside Convention Center; $200/ticket).

It seemed for a while that the Rochester Music Fest (now called Rochester Summerfest) had died off with the Johnson administration. Weak line-ups and a lack of focus all but killed the once-huge summer event. But it looks like it’s back. There’s some heavy hitters on this bill in the hip-hop/R&B scene. Something for everyone — even the big kids. The event kicks off Thursday, July 11, 6 p.m. with a Day Party featuring J-Holiday at One (1 Ryan Alley), then continues with soul legends The Whispers Friday, July 12, 7:30 p.m. at the Auditorium Theatre (885 E. Main St.). The music moves to Blue Cross Arena (1 War Memorial Square) on Saturday, July 13, 7:30 p.m. for a modern r’n’b line-up featuring TGT (Tyrese, Ginuwine, Tank), Kelly Rowland, Fabolous, and Chrisette Michele. And then it wraps up Sunday, July 14, for the All-White Affair at Max at High Falls (60 Browns Race).

[ KARAOKE ] EXPERIMENTAL ROCK | SUMMER PEOPLE
Upstate New York’s Donna the Buffalo has been active in the music scene for more than two decades. The group is well-known for its distinctive brand of Americana music, mixing its familiar roots with a plethora of genres, ranging from reggae to zydeco to the blues. Donna recently released “Tonight, Tomorrow, and Yesterday,” an album that is devoid of heavy production, as it was recorded live, directly onto analog tape. In fact, on this new release, the band presents an entirely different sound than on most previous releases — particularly 2008’s “Silverlined,” which embraced a radio-friendly, clean-cut sound.
Despite the incessant rain and lackluster sunshine that we have been forced to live with lately, summer will finally come to Rochester this week in the form of five dudes from Binghamton. The Summer People sound is as unpredictable as the weather in Western New York, so calling it “experimental” is about as close as it gets. The collective is known for its energetic and unpredictable live shows that throw elements of post-punk, progressive rock, heavy blues, and freaky folk against the proverbial wall to see what sticks. The band’s most recent album, “Burn the Germs,” was released in April and has been lighting a fire under critics and fans alike. With Televisionaries, Blue Falcon, and Pleistocene.

ROCK | SIRSY
Albany-based Sirsy’s sound is impressively full, considering the fact that it is merely a duo. The band consists of singer/drummer Mel and guitarist Mike, joining together in a White Stripes-esque effort toward making a very big noise with a very small band. Sirsy’s songs are reminiscent of the heavy, grunge-influenced pop of the 90’s, calling to mind such bands as No Doubt and Soundgarden. Mel’s voice is the star of the show — equal parts strong and vulnerable — with an impressive range and a captivating style. The duo writes energetic rock songs with introspective lyrics and unforgettable melodies. Sirsy performs on Friday, July 12, 10:30 p.m. at Lovin’ Cup Bistro, 300 Park Point Drive. Free.

Cast members of Shakespeare Players’ “Twelfth Night.” The production is running through July 20 at the Highland Bowl. PHOTO PROVIDED
Summer of love “Twelfth Night” BY THE SHAKESPEARE PLAYERS THROUGH JULY 20 HIGHLAND BOWL, SOUTH AVENUE FREE | ROCHESTERCOMMUNITYPLAYERS.ORG [ REVIEW ] BY DAVID RAYMOND
The combination of Shakespeare, a warm summer night, a lovely green space, fireflies, and a bottle of wine (well, not if you’re reviewing, of course) has been a popular one in Rochester for 17 years, thanks to the Rochester Community Players. The group’s Shakespeare Players shingle presents the Bard’s works throughout the year, but it’s always pleasant to revisit these annual summer performances, held outdoors in the Highland Bowl. This year the Shakespeare Players are presenting “Twelfth Night,” which continues nightly (except Mondays and Thursdays) through July 20. And it is as pleasing an evening as ever. The play is generally thought of as one of those “rollicking” Shakespeare comedies — it was originally performed at the end of the Christmas season, which apparently was the 17th-century equivalent of Spring Break, a time for 22 CITY JULY 10-16, 2013
rule-bending and bad behavior (hence the play’s subtitle, “What You Will”). But while “Twelfth Night” is definitely a comedy, it strikes me a rather sad, or at least philosophical, one. It begins with a shipwreck and a supposed death, and ends with a clown singing a song with the refrain, “The rain it raineth every day.” In between we have a woman excessively mourning her brother’s death, and a pompous servant given his comeuppance by being locked up as a madman, among other events. But there are also roistering drunks, mistaken identities, bawdy puns, some gentle gender-bending, and musings on the nature of love, and a happy ending in which order is restored, at least temporarily. The Shakespeare Players’ production, directed by Brad Craddock, keeps things light and direct, which is appropriate enough for such an informal (and huge) venue as Highland Bowl. Craddock, the designers (or at least the costume designer), and the composer try to give the play a vaguely 60’s or 70’s, love-the-one-you’re-with vibe. There’s nothing wrong with that. The play is set in Illyria, a kind of Never-Never Land, and the action has no historical parallels. This is fine as far as it goes, but the approach is a bit gingerly to evoke such a crazy and colorful period,
and the show might have been even more fun had the troupe gone even further with it. The set is handsome and stage-filling, but doesn’t reinforce the retro idea of the rest of the production. (More about the music later.) This “Twelfth Night” starts at a placid pace — there are a lot of characters to introduce — but picks up steam once the plot kicks in. At the performance I attended, there were a few stage waits and some capricious mics, but the performance proceeded smoothly and got things wrapped up in a little over two hours. “Twelfth Night” is a real ensemble piece
among Shakespeare’s comedies — some parts are showier than others, but all the major ones seem roughly equal. This production is very evenly cast, with strong participation from all the actors. Their enunciation is almost always clear and direct, and you’ll have no trouble following the plot, such as it is. Olivia Choma is a charming and lively Viola and convincing enough in her disguise as “Cesario,” and a good match with her brother Sebastian (Edward Coomber). As a hippie-dippy Count Orsino, Ken Dauer sounds like George Carlin and looks like a Peter Max drawing. (His “If music be the food of love” speech is accompanied by a guitar rendition of “Stairway to Heaven.”)
Stephanie Roosa is an engaging Olivia, and as her besotted servant Malvolio, Jeffrey W. Jones (who was a notably nasty Richard III last summer), makes his first entrance done up in a Victorian three-piece suit, spats, and muttonchops, looking like he stepped from a page of an 1890’s Punch magazine. In the second half, he tries wooing his employer in the famous “yellow stockings and cross garters,” which here make him look like the most clueless hip-hop wannabe. Jones makes the transition from pomposity to silliness (and a bit later in the play, to near-despair) with panache. The members of the “below-stairs” crowd in this play deserve a paragraph to themselves. Katharine Sanford (Maria), Elliot F. Fox (Sir Toby Belch), T. Bohrer (Sir Andrew Aguecheek), and Jay O’Leary (Fabian) have an awful lot of heavy-handed fooling around to do here; Shakespeare did go on with his lowlife characters. But these actors fool around with physical agility and even some pleasingly subtle line readings. Fox’s entrance with Sanford in Act I wakes up the play, and the energy doesn’t let up. O’Leary comes into her own late in the show with a very funny imitation of the pompous Malvolio. Jeff Siuda is the Lord of Misrule character as the household’s resident clown, Feste. Shakespeare gives him plenty to say and sing, and Craddock has him all over the stage. Siuda throws himself into the role. He makes his entrance in a silver lamé jacket and gold platform shoes. Some of what he is asked to do is not all that amusing (he does a song and dance with the strait-jacketed Malvolio and some disco-lighting that is downright embarrassing), but when he is channeling Rod Stewart or Bob Dylan in a mock-60’s pop song, he’s very funny. The cast is rounded out nicely with James Heath (who also designed the set) as a dashing Antonio, who in this interpretation is, as the Elizabethans said, crushing on Sebastian; and Daile Mitchum in two smaller roles, to which she brings an attractive presence and voice. That brings us to the music for this “Twelfth Night,” by Mark Frey. “Twelfth Night” needs a lot of music — in fact, with all those songs it’s practically a musical itself. The incidental music has been a very variable element in different summer Shakespeare productions I have seen, but this is the best I have heard. Frey’s mock60’s treatments of the famous song lyrics reinforce the production concept very well and he comes up with some good tunes (and of course, the lyrics are excellent). His music generally works so well in this context that I wish there was more of it.

RECREATION | SWIMMING SPOTS
It’s July. Go swimming. ‘Nuff said. Oh, you don’t have a pool? Me neither. Lucky for us, there are dozens of public places to cool off, many of which are listed at cityofrochester.gov. Just search “aquatics” and you’ll get the list of recreation centers and schools with pools, beaches that offer open swimming hours under the careful supervision of lifeguards, as well as the “Cool Sweep” locations and times, which are operations that include opened fire hydrants, spray parks, and cooling locations with A/C, triggered when the temperatures reach 85 degrees or higher. Admission is free to all locations. Monroe County public beaches include Durand Eastman Beach (Lakeshore Drive and Kings Highway North), and Ontario Beach Park (4800 Lake Ave.). Lifeguards are on duty daily 11a.m.-7 p.m. during the summer at both locations. For daily beach conditions, call the Monroe County Beach Hotline at 753-5887, which is updated each morning. If you’re looking to relax with a good read, Durand tends to be more peaceful, and for those with kiddos, Ontario Beach Park has a carousel and an Abbott’s.

THEATER | JAWBONE PUPPET THEATRE & PONCILI COMPANY
When I hear the words “puppet theater,” I think of crafty embodiments of archetypes relating moralizing tales, geared toward tots. Unless, of course, we’re talking about “Avenue Q,” which is a set of crafty embodiments of archetypes relating moralizing tales for the sexually mature set. On Thursday, July 11, MuCCC (142 Atlantic Ave.) will host something that is infinitely more bizarre: Jawbone Puppet Theater & Poncili Company will present “Sacred Candy: An Experimental Adult Puppet Show,” featuring physical theatre, puppets, and big strange masks. Jawbone Puppet Theater is described as a quirky, pottymouthed, father-son act from Brooklyn, by way of Taiwan, and Poncili Company is a mysterious experimental art collective from Puerto Rico. The show will include the short masterpiece “Fire Hydrant Woman gets Tooken Away,” written, designed, and directed by a 5-year-old named Corn Snake (no, really: facebook.com/cornsnakemonsterprint), which culminates in a disemboweled T-rex spewing guts and candies. The show goes on: a clueless girl meets the world through the eyes of Candywoot, a schizophrenic clown obsessed with the reality of a near, but bizarre, dystopian future, while a man with a bad leg tries to make his way home, and everybody prays to the holy mutant cow in hopes of ending their addiction to candy. Sounds about right. In addition, a potty-mouthed biblical scholar will regale you with the tale of “Genesis, Chapter 38,” a funny, dirty retelling of one of the weirder bible stories, which includes scenes of graphic puppet-on-puppet sex. The event starts at 8 p.m. Tickets are sold for a donation of $8 in advance or $10 at the door (no one will be turned away for lack of funds), and the event will also host inexpensive prints, small sculptures, comics, and more for sale.

On Saturday, July 13, you can join an event that combines the exhilarating activity of a Critical Mass bike ride and the playful, fancy affair of a masquerade. At approximately 3 p.m., gussied-up cyclists will meet at a secret location — to be disclosed to ticket holders — to build and decorate bicycles and other rolling vehicles. Bring your bike and you’ll receive assistance altering it into a work of art. Skateboarders, scooter-riders, and the wheel-less are welcome. All materials for decorating bikes and bodies and mask-making, as well as food and beverages, will be provided. Local artists will create art bikes and provide demonstrations. At sunset, the group will gather for an evening bike ride (with glow sticks and blinking items to increase visibility), which will culminate at the Public Market for a Masquerade Ball at The Yards (50-52 Public Market Way), with about an hour of live music and three hours of DJ sets, visual projection by VJ Screen Sabre, and stage sets by Puppatron.

The Ranger rides again [ REVIEW ] BY GEORGE GRELLA
“The Lone Ranger” (PG-13), DIRECTED BY GORE VERBINSKI NOW PLAYING
As history demonstrates, the law of the conservation of matter applies magnificently to Hollywood, where nothing, it seems, is ever wasted, lost, or forgotten. The Lone Ranger galloped through decades of radio shows, comic books, television series, and movies, yet returns once again, with his faithful Indian companion Tonto and his white horse Silver, only now in a grand spectacle that belongs with all the other overblown remakes, sequels,

prequels, and plagiarisms that populate the cineplexes this summer. In a film season featuring blockbuster versions of “The Wizard of Oz” and “The Great Gatsby,” it should come as no surprise that the modest little radio serial becomes one of the showiest and, frankly, silliest movies of the year. Apparently in the interests of political correctness or appeasing the sensibilities of Native Americans understandably resentful of their treatment in both history and cinema, and weary of decades of Caucasians and even African Americans playing Indians, the script turns good old Tonto (Johnny Depp) into an equal partner of John Reid (Armie Hammer), the Lone Ranger. In addition, Depp, who enjoys top billing in the credits, has frequently and unconvincingly advertised some faint connection to some Indian tribe or other, though without specifying if he is a descendant of Geronimo, Sitting Bull, Crazy Horse, or some perhaps lessfamous chieftain. The picture unfolds in a retrospective

narrative, with the aged Tonto, on display in a Wild West show in 1933, recounting the story to a young boy. Throughout his account the plot moves back and forth in time, with several stories within the primary story providing context and history. That history bears only a vague resemblance to the familiar tale of the masked man who became the hero of a thousand adventures in every popular medium. Filmed all over the West, the film magically moves fabled Monument Valley to Texas in 1869 as the transcontinental railroad, also moved magically to Texas, nears completion. A gang of outlaws attacks the train itself, which carries John Reid, a young prosecutor, and two prisoners, Tonto and the gang’s leader, a vicious murderer named Butch Cavendish (William Fichtner). The trio of Reid, Tonto, and Cavendish carry on a series of pursuits, ambushes, and gunfights throughout this very long movie. Just about every element of the picture from that point onward grows increasingly violent and extreme, sometimes leading to horror, sometimes to humor. Cavendish, for example, even disgusts his gang of thugs when he cuts out the heart of one of his living victims and devours it. On the other hand the script portrays Reid as a dumb, incompetent, straitlaced, naïve buffoon, guided and frequently rescued by the sly, clever, sardonic Tonto, who gets all the laughs. Repeating itself over and over, the film shows the Ranger and his sidekick constantly

landing in trouble and escaping through luck or subterfuge or the assistance of the “spirit horse,” a wonderful white beast who of course becomes the famous Silver. In the process, John Reid actually grows into the role of the Lone Ranger, which as a man of peace he had resisted despite the villainy he and Tonto confront. The stirring climax of the picture, which goes on interminably, features dozens of remarkable stunts involving two separate trains, the Ranger riding Silver across the roofs of a whole string of railroad cars, an exploding trestle, a tremendous wreck, and of course, numerous slugfests and gun fights. The credits list over a thousand people, hundreds of them digital artists who create all those amazing effects, which indicates just how far the concept has traveled from the great days of the “William Tell” overture and the ringing voice of Clayton Moore, television’s original Ranger. Although it contains some traditional Western themes and devices — Native Americans, outlaws, railroads, train and bank robberies, the memory of the Civil War — the movie plays many of them for laughs and exaggerates the others beyond plausibility. The actors, including the trio of Depp, Hammer, and Fichtner, play their characters on one dull, repetitive note. The dumb comedy conflicts with the attempts at serious action and a running gag about the Ranger’s mask undercuts any of the romance of the original hero. Hiyo Silver, go away!
We’ve all been there: you’re 15, filled with angst, hormones raging, your parents are driving you insane, and you just can’t wait to get the f— out of the house. You’re still a kid, but longing for the sweet freedom of adulthood, fantasizing about finally striking out on your own, away from the rules and expectations of your parents. Perhaps those patron saints of adolescence, DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince, summed it up best when they explained: parents just don’t understand. It’s a feeling that director Jordan Vogt-Roberts and writer Chris Galletta clearly remember all too well and utilize to great effect in their hilarious and charmingly offbeat comingof-age tale, “The Kings of Summer.” Joe (Nick Robinson) lives alone with his widower father, Frank (Nick Offerman, “Parks and Recreation”). The gulf between them, which existed even before the death of Joe’s mother, has only gotten bigger as Frank has allowed his unhappiness to get the better of him, turning him bitter and antagonistic. Joe’s older sister, Heather (Alison Brie, “Community”), offers a

sympathetic ear during her occasional visits, but long ago saw her chance to escape, and hasn’t really looked back since. Meanwhile, Joe’s best friend, Patrick (Gabriel Basso), is having trouble with his own parents (Megan Mullally and Marc Evan Jackson, both hilarious in roles that unfortunately amount to little more than caricatures). They are the very definition of helicopter parents, incessantly hovering over him and nitpicking every move he makes, to the extent that they’ve given the poor kid hives. After stumbling across a secluded area deep within the woods, Joe, always the more industrious of the duo, thinks he’s found the solution to their problems: they’ll run away and build a home for themselves in the forest. Finally they’ll be masters of their own destinies, and if their newfound independence impresses Kelly (Erin Moriarty), Joe’s longtime crush, all the better. Somewhere along the way, they pick up Biaggio (Moises Arias), their oddball classmate, who just sort of shows up one day and gets absorbed into their ranks. Together the three boys make their own rules, living off the land (aside from occasional takeout from Boston Market when hunting proves a bit more difficult than anticipated), and taking advantage of their lack of supervision. The concept behind “The Kings of Summer” is more than a little ridiculous, but the underlying emotions are real and Vogt-Roberts wisely plays them straight, even if the wild shifts in tone — alternating between wild flights of fancy, absurd humor, and earnest melodrama — sometimes threaten to give the audience whiplash. The film manages to break outside the box of traditional coming-ofage stories with a delightfully off-kilter sensibility. Not everything works all the time, but as a whole, the film maintains a goofy charm and by its end has gained a
somewhat unexpected poignancy. There’s even a scene late in the film of almost unbearable suspense and a dream sequence that plays like a scene out of “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World,” proving Vogt-Roberts is capable of just about anything. This is the director’s first feature film, and it’s a debut that hints at greatness to come. The film is anchored by strong performances from all three of the young leads. Robinson’s performance deepens as the film goes on, making great use a boyish smile and eyes that suggest an endless capacity for mischief. Basso is soulful and sympathetic, even as his character takes some actions that might have proved unlikeable in a less capable actor’s hands. But possibly best of all is Arias, who proves himself a master of the non sequitur and all but steals the movie with his kooky charm. I’m fighting the urge to segue into a list of some of his best lines, but I wouldn’t want to ruin them. The roles for the adults are a bit slim, but Nick Offerman gets the most to do and he nails the role; he’s playing a bastard, but his performance never obscures the wounded man underneath. The film was shot in the woods of Ohio, and the locations are shown off to great effect in director of photography Ross Riege’s lovely cinematography. The gorgeous shots of nature and the wildlife verge on Malick territory. Also noteworthy is the score by Ryan Miller, lead singer of the band Guster. His original music blends indie-rock with an 8-bit video-game sound, and it’s remarkably effective at getting the audience into the mindset of a 15-yearold boy. With their help, “The Kings of Summer” captures the feeling of summer when you’re a kid; the way that school and the “real” world are a distant memory, and those few months stretch out before you, seemingly filled with endless possibility.

in under 10 minutes. In New York City, you might pay millions for the privilege, but in Rochester look no further than this elegant Arts and Crafts home at 77 East Ridge Road, less than a half mile walk from the Seneca Park entrance on Saint Paul Boulevard. Sure, it might not come with a Central Park West doorman, but who can complain at $99,900 for 1,820 square feet? Seneca Park was just 25 years old when this inviting home was built in 1918, and it retains much of its early 20th century allure. The asymmetric exterior is a welcoming introduction, full of visual interest and charm—with contrasting roof lines with deep eaves, a 5-window bay on the left, and inviting front porch to the right flanking a center, arched entrance with leaded sidelights. Wooden clapboard and windows— including wooden storm windows—have been kept in wonderful condition and good working order. Through a small entryway with hexagonal tile and a leaded glass interior door, one enters into a foyer. A convenient powder room has been tucked under the stairwell. To the right is a spacious living room with a working fireplace surrounded by twin built-in bookshelves, topped by leaded-glass windows. On the left, the dining room’s bay window looks out over the front yard above a 35-rib curved radiator— what an impressive piece of utilitarian
Toward the back of the house is the home’s updated kitchen featuring an island perfect for food prep and entertaining, but there are two real surprises here: an adjoining breakfast room with huge windows overlooking the two-car garage and lovely backyard, as well as the original butler’s pantry with all the drawers, counter-space, and cupboards for which one could ask. Upstairs are four spacious bedrooms, a laundry chute, and a linen closet. The master bedroom has an adjoining sleeping porch lined with original casement windows. It’s a beautiful bonus space with a ton of potential just awaiting your vision. The full bath on this floor adds vintage flair with plenty of space and period tile.

Fun [ NEWS OF THE WEIRD ] BY CHUCK SHEPHERD
Things People Believe
— Sheriffs and government deed-recorders in several states have reported annoying attempts recently by “Moorish American nationals” to confiscate temporarily vacant houses (often mansions), moving in without inhibition, changing the locks, and partying joyously -- based on made-up documents full of gobbledygook and stilted legalese granting them sovereignty beyond the reach of law-enforcement. There is a venerable Moorish Temple Science of America, but these trespassers in Florida, Maryland, Tennessee, and other states are from fanciful offshoots that demand reparations (usually in gold) for ChristopherColumbus-era Europeans having stolen “their” land. A North Carolina police investigator told the Washington Post in March that “every state” is experiencing the “Moorish American” invasion. — Britain’s Anomalous Mind Management Abductee Contactee Helpline is the nation’s “weirdest” support group, wrote the Daily Mirror in June, providing a range of services to victims of kidnapping by extraterrestrials and other haunting incidents to about 1,500 people a year, according to co-founder Miles Johnston. AMMACH uses an ordinary wall-stud detector to locate bodily implants and employs magnetic field meters and mineral lamps to identify “signatures” left on a skin’s atoms by visits to another dimensional reality, Johnston explained. “We are under the threat of termination as a species if we do not get this sorted out.”
Cliches Comes to Life
— Sheriff’s deputies arrested Shane Kersey, 35, in March as the one who
made phone calls to four schools in New Orleans’s Westbank neighborhood, threatening to burn them down. When taken into custody, Kersey had aluminum foil wrapped around his skull and secured by a baseball cap but explained to an officer that he needed it “to prevent microwave signals from entering his head.” — Among the character witnesses in May at the New York City sex-trafficking trial of alleged pimp Vincent George, Jr., 33, and his father were three of the younger man’s ladies, who praised him unconditionally to the jury as a good father to the children they bore for him and as the person responsible for helping them kick their drug habits. Heather Keith, 28, and Danielle Geissler, 31, referred to each other as Vincent, Jr.’s “wife-in-law.” Geissler admitted that George (“Daddy”) slapped her around a bit, explaining that they both “slapped each other around sometimes but never over work or staying in the (prostitution) life.” (Three weeks later, the Georges were acquitted of sex trafficking, although convicted of money- laundering.)
— Tim Blackburn, 50, fell off a ladder in Stockton-on-Tees, England, in 2007, and shattered his arm so badly that doctors had to remove four inches of bone and attach a metal scaffold around his arm that took six years to heal completely (and then only because of help from a cutting-edge ultrasound procedure). In May 2013 -- one day after he got a clean bill of health -- Blackburn tripped over his dog and tumbled down the stairs in his home, and his arm “snapped like a twig,” he said.
[ LAST WEEK’S SOLUTION ON PAGE 35 ]
[ LOVESCOPE ] BY EUGENIA LAST ARIES (March 21-April 19): Socialize, participate and, most of all, show your playful personality, and you will send a signal to individuals willing to take on the challenge of keeping up to you. Updating your look or making a couple of changes will attract compliments and romance. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Meeting new people is your first step toward finding someone special, but before you jump into to a one-on-one relationship, explore a friendship first. Once you are sure you share the same interests with a newfound friend, you can become intimate.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Boredom is your enemy when it comes to love. Chemistry is a wonderful thing and will capture your interest and your heart, leading to an impulsive move that may not end up being in your best interest. Have fun, but don’t make promises that may stifle your freedom. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Latching on to someone from your past may seem like a good idea when you first make contact, but the same problems that lead to separation are likely to surface. Learn from the experiences you’ve encountered in the past and you’ll find someone who fits your lifestyle better.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You won’t have to do much to attract attention. Love is in the stars, but so is jealousy and possessiveness. Make sure you are ready to settle down before you engage in an intimate relationship. A tendency to entice someone who is overbearing can lead to stalking. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Do your research. Someone is likely to play games with you when it comes to an emotional relationship. Don’t take part in a relationship with someone who is still involved with someone else. A secret affair may start sweet and harmlessly, but it’s likely to turn sour.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Participating in the arts, entertainment or volunteering for something of an intellectual nature will bring you in contact with someone who sparks your interest and shares your thoughts. A sudden change in your status is likely to take place. Enjoy the encounter. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): A short-lived romance is likely to occur. Don’t settle for less than what you want in a partner. Slow down and make sure that whomever you end up with has similar morals, values and integrity. Mentally dance with whatever partner you choose before becoming intimate.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Travel and physical activities will lead to love, romance, intrigue and a change in the way you live your life. Have fun enjoying the pursuit of love. The games are just beginning, and the thrill, adventure and rush of love looks positive. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Pushiness is likely to lead to a dead end when it comes to love. You have to let partners come to you if you want to build a strong and lasting relationship. Too much of anything will come across as needy. An aloof and confident approach will bring better results.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Your experimental nature will entice someone spectacular. Swing into action and lead the way. It’s your uniqueness and desire to try something new that will keep someone special coming back for more. You’ll have a change of heart if your partner isn’t as adventuresome as you. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Let your intuition lead the way when it comes to love. Look closer to home and you will find that someone special has an interest in you. Choosing to engage in events or activities of an unusual nature will open up conversations that will eventually lead to intimacy.
