The Fox Sisters: more now than then It was no big deal; just another night of rock ‘n’ roll in the Flower City. The smart set had shoehorned itself into Abilene on a Friday night in March for headliners 5Head and an unknown support act. You could’ve spread the energy with a spatula. It was palpable within the crowd-powered steam heat when seven musicians piled onto the stage area to get the rock ’n’ roll ball rolling. With a stomp and a whoop, the band floored it with a flipped-out frappe of soul
and r&b. It was a soul-shaking, hip-quaking blast of Hell Yes. It was The Fox Sisters, and man, did the band ever lay it down. The wow factor makes sense given the band’s pedigree. The Fox Sisters includes members who have earned their bones in bands like The Thundergods, The Quitters, Dog’s Life, Hinkley, Veluxe, and Nod. Find out the story of this new band inside.

Charter challenges and opportunities I’m still asking the question: Why aren’t we “fixing” the city public schools? (“Changing My Mind About Charter Schools,” Urban Journal) Maybe bring the expertise together and focus on all students. The charter schools, though making a difference, are similar to what happened when wealthier parents left the city and took their kids (and money and influence and commitment) to the suburbs, leaving behind those struggling to struggle. The students who are fortunate enough to get in a charter school receive a wonderful opportunity, but what about the opportunities and education for the remaining students? All students deserve a quality education, not just those who happen to be fortunate. THOMAS WARFIELD
Tim Mains’ legacy
We are losing a gem (“Tim Mains: I Was the Gay Teacher”). Tim’s advocacy, by simply being himself, is profound. His work with educators and students is tireless. Tim hit the nail on the head with so many of his insights about the Rochester City School District, but I was especially appreciative of his frank comments to business leaders who complain about the broken system: “If the district is that bad, and you know 2 CITY
all of these schools around it are so much better, why not just disband the school district? Then all the kids who live in the city would have to be absorbed by the surrounding suburbs.” Why not indeed? IIOPATA
Reducing the trash
The way that we handle trash pickup around here is ridiculously irresponsible (“Trash Talk,” News). Trucks from several companies burn gas and spew exhaust to cover the same ground, and I pay the same amount per month for the pickup of two Wegmans bags of trash as do neighbors who fill their roller every week. When I lived in Seoul, South Korea, I was very impressed with their disposal system. Trash had to be put into certain bags, available at any convenience store, which were priced by size. The more you throw away, the more you pay. Recycling was compulsory, but free; you could put out recyclables in any bag (and we’ve already done one better here with our “blue bins”). Composting was also compulsory, but not completely free; bags were approximately 10 for $1. Bags could be kept in the freezer until full, so there were no issues with bugs or smell. The system was sensible, fair, and gave people an incentive to throw away less. It seems as though many of these problems could be addressed quite effectively if any of the powers-that-be cared to spend just a very small amount of time on them. MELISSA NICHOLSON
Public art and the public
Our July 10 article on this year’s Wall\Therapy public mural project (“Worlds Collide on Walls”) set off an online dialogue
JULY 31 - AUGUST 6, 2013
among readers, pro and con. Among the comments:
Everyone who thinks this Wall\Therapy is fun should read Paul Goldberg’s letter in which he relates the experience of having to see a particularly (to him and to many others) unappealing mural every day (“Facing the Art,” Feedback). To me that would be aesthetic hell, and for every individual of very particular taste who gushes about the mural artists, there may be countless (and, shamefully, uncounted) others who have to live with the results for some indefinite term. A lot of this art is exciting, inventive, alive... but a lot of it, even “the best,” is jarring, unsettling, and not at all what a lot of people going about their lives want to have to look at routinely. As far as I can tell, this initiative did not arise from any community need or interest and was, rather, imposed – maybe with good intentions, but not with true regard for or respect for anyone who wasn’t on board. Public art needs to respect the public and serve the public. And when artists and art boosters have an idea to put out there for the supposed greater good, it does a disservice to the creative spirit to replace real dialogue with one-sided, selfrighteous bullying. JACK RUSSELL
I found this statement most telling: “but a lot of it, even “the best,” is jarring, unsettling, and not at all what a lot of people going about their lives want to have to look at routinely.” I translate this as “I only want to see pretty things.” Art by its nature is created to challenge us. Using Jack Russell’s argument, we should not have to see abandoned buildings, homelessness, illness, etc. All these things exist in our city. Ignoring/ marginalizing these things
neither cures them nor addresses root causes. Enjoy your Disneyland while Rome burns. I loathe seeing the architecture Wegmans uses, and that was created after years of wrangling. It to me represents a larger detriment to the city than any art could ever cause. BRUCE DAVIE
Jack Russell, what’s great about this project is that it has started from the bottom up rather than top down. The community itself is what organized the project rather than “art by committee.” There were planning meetings that the public was invited to attend. There have been many opportunities for voices to be heard in planning and during the weeklong festival. Just last night, there was an incredible and free artist roundtable at School of the Arts, where some of your questions could have been answered by the artists themselves. There have been so many opportunities for voices and opinions to be heard in this project, whereas if it had been dictated by the city or the county, the art most likely would have been dictated by city leaders and project funders. We also would likely not have gotten such world-class artists to do the paintings, as they appreciate being able to choose their own subjects rather than having the content dictated to them. By doing the project in this way, Rochester has attracted world-renowned artists who have varied backgrounds and artistic styles, turning our city into an amazing canvas. All art will not appeal to everybody, but with such diverse artists, there’s bound to be something for everybody. If you had come to the artist discussion last night, you may have been surprised by the artists’ knowledge of their work
as possibly temporary and their openness (though not desire) to have their work taken down if deemed by the community to be too problematic. I can’t believe that any of the amazing murals that are part of this project could be deemed “aesthetic hell” when compared to the blank walls, nearby alleys and dumpsters, and in some cases abandoned and condemned properties. Wall\Therapy is an incredible asset to this community and is meant to bring together the community and encourage people to see the beauty in some unappreciated parts of the city.

I walked down part of the El Camino Trail from Irondequoit this morning. My intention was to see the art, which I did. But what really made me feel good were the three different people also wandering around who engaged me, happy to see the artists in their neighborhood. GAYLON ARNOLD
Jeremy Moule’s article on bike boulevards mentions “tough-to-bike” roads (News). I would like to nominate South Goodman from Park Avenue to Highland Avenue. I have traveled that stretch year round and have used Meigs and Alexander as an alternative when possible. The road has no shoulder, and the potholes could swallow a caravan of three wheelers with no problem. The idea of creating alternate routes is great. I just hope that the city follows through with the plan and it doesn’t fall into the cracks on one of the many streets here in Rochester. KURT OECHSLE

URBAN JOURNAL | BY MARY ANNA TOWLER
Preserving preservation The plan for a new apartment building at 933 University Avenue is back in the news. The proposal, by Morgan Management, is on the Rochester Preservation Board’s August 7 agenda. The board won’t vote that night on whether the project should be built. But it will come up with a position on a key issue: whether the project might have a significant adverse effect on adjacent properties, the character of the neighborhood, traffic, noise, and other concerns. That position statement will be sent to the City Planning Commission, which will likely hear the Morgan case on September 16. And it will help the city’s director of planning and zoning decide whether an Environmental Impact Statement should be done on the project. Morgan has revised its plan several times, and its latest proposal eliminates one serious objection. Originally, Morgan planned to demolish the 1920’s house on the northeast corner of the property, and the city seldom grants permission to demolish a structure in a preservation district. Morgan now says it’s willing to restore the house and provide space in it for the building’s current owner, the Monroe Voiture veterans group. The apartment building design has not changed, though. Neither have critics’ other objections. The building would be three and four stories tall and would have 99 apartments and 157 parking spaces – 132 of them underground, reserved for residents, the others available for Monroe Voiture. Officials at the two adjacent institutions, the George Eastman House and the Greek Orthodox Church of the Annunciation, insist that the development would adversely affect them. Church officials say that the project will create serious traffic problems, that it doesn’t include enough parking for all of the apartments’ tenants, and that they will end up using the church parking lot. Morgan officials dispute this, but it’s logical to assume that every one-bedroom tenant will have a car, and that most of the two-bedroom apartments will have two tenants with cars. And when they can’t find space at the Morgan development, they will park in the church parking lot – conveniently just a few feet away. The Eastman House argues, among other things, that because of its scale, the building will damage the view from the Eastman House property. That can sound elitist. This is, after all, a city. And
The proposed Morgan building covers much of its property, and its mass will look completely out of character on University Avenue.” in cities, a variety of uses (and sounds and views) must co-exist. But this is not Manhattan. The City of Rochester has room for a wide variety of uses, without one of them butting up against another. More significant, though, is that the Eastman House is a National Historic Landmark. As such, the State Environmental Quality Review Act protects it from harm, and adjacent development could need an Environmental Impact Statement if it might have a significant adverse impact on the museum. And the act states specifically that the “visual proximity” of a proposed development can be considered in determining whether it would cause an adverse impact. The project will unquestionably have an impact on the neighborhood, part of which is the city’s first preservation district. Significantly, a big reason the district was established – at the urging of neighborhood residents and the Landmark Society – was the construction of a growing number of large, out-of-scale apartment buildings on East Avenue. The preservation legislation pretty much put an end to that development. The East Avenue Preservation District is a neighborhood of houses, commercial buildings, and institutions. Some of the houses are grand, to be sure. But they are not massive. They fit their surroundings. The proposed Morgan building covers much of its property, and its mass will look completely out of character on University Avenue. University Avenue is not East Avenue, of course. It has numerous commercial buildings, as well as apartments and houses. But they are of small scale. And when the preservation district lines were drawn up, University Avenue was included – because district supporters and city officials believed it needed protection.

ACTIVISM | BY CHRISTINE CARRIE FIEN
Abortion activism If you’ve been out and about in Rochester over the last week, you may have seen a truck with images of an aborted fetus on it. Or spied protestors toting equally graphic visuals. That’s because the anti-abortion group Operation Save America has been in Rochester since July 24 for its yearly national event, which concludes on July 31. The nonprofit Anti-Defamation League says that OSA has “a threepronged mission to demonize abortion, homosexuality, and Islam.” Locally, group members have been at Ontario Beach Park, hospitals, physicians’ offices, and at other locations over the past week.
The group has been met with counter protests by Rochester Women’s Equality, Liberation, and Defense — a coalition of progressive organizations. Turnout at OSA’s Rochester events has been lower than expected, says a WELD representative. But it has also been more personal than WELD is used to, she says. OSA members have passed flyers around physicians’ neighborhoods, she says, and have surrounded and insulted WELD members. “They’re very intimidating — surrounding you with 30 people,” a WELD representative says. A police spokesperson says the Rochester Police Department has

Rochester WELD has held a number of events over the past week, including an interfaith vigil, street festival, and educational events around reproductive and LGBTQ rights. A WELD spokesperson says that because OSA turnout was low, that WELD didn’t have to provide active opposition such as escort services at clinics.

Existing nuclear plants can produce electricity cheaply, at a cost of about 1.7 cents per kilowatt hour. But that figure can change if a plant owner has to make a large investment, such as replacing a plant’s steam generator, which can cost several hundred million dollars.
ENERGY | BY JEREMY MOULE
ENVIRONMENT | BY JEREMY MOULE
A Vermont Law School researcher recently released a list of 12 US nuclear power plants that he says face economic risks that could lead to early shutdown. And the Ginna nuclear plant in Wayne County is on the list. Mark Cooper, a senior fellow for economic analysis at the school’s Institute for Energy and the Environment, says he’s not trying to predict which plants may close before their licenses expire. Rather, he says he wants to warn policymakers that more nuclear reactors are likely to close early as the economics of nuclear plants become more challenging. Four US nuclear reactors retired in the first half of 2013 — all for financial reasons. Generally, when a power plant permanently goes offline, its power has to be replaced somehow. Cooper lists several risk factors for Ginna. The plant is small and it sells electricity into New York’s deregulated, competitive market, Cooper says. And the plant’s age is another risk factor, he says. Ginna received its first license in 1969. Tom Drennen, chair of the economics department at Hobart and William Smith Colleges in Geneva, says the report’s arguments are credible. Drennen specializes in several areas of energy and environmental
economics, including nuclear economics. Existing nuclear plants can produce electricity cheaply, at a cost of about 1.7 cents per kilowatt hour, Drennen says. But that figure can Tom Drennen change if a plant FILE PHOTO owner has to make a large investment, such as replacing a plant’s steam generator, which can cost several hundred million dollars. Nuclear plants’ chief competitors are natural gas plants. Over the past few years, natural gas prices have significantly declined, which means the plants can produce cheap electricity. A brand new natural gas plant produces electricity at a cost of 3 cents to 4 cents per kilowatt hour, Drennen says. If a nuclear plant can’t match or beat those numbers, he says, it’ll have difficulty selling electricity in New York’s market.
A bipartisan group of House representatives called the Great Lakes Caucus has introduced legislation that would provide significant funding to improve water quality in the lakes. | The bill would reauthorize and fund the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative, the Great Lakes Legacy Act, and the Great Lakes National Program Office. It would also create the Great Lakes Interagency Task Force — a group of White House cabinet secretaries and federal agency heads who would coordinate Great Lakes restoration efforts. | The legislation sets aside up to $475 million a year for the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative, which provides grants to address a broad range of water quality and ecosystem issues, including invasive species control. | The bill also provides $100 million a year for five years for the Great Lakes Legacy Act, which addresses historic pollution in the lakes — much of which is due to the industries that developed along their shores. | Other focuses of the bill: reauthorize and fund the Environmental Protection Agency’s Great Lakes National Program Office for five years, and create the Great Lakes Advisory Board to advise the EPA administrator on Great Lakes restoration issues.

PROFILE | BY TIM LOUIS MACALUSO
The artist of Highland Park Monroe County horticulturist Tom Pollock ventures out into Highland Park often when the mornings are barely light. Driving a small green John Deere utility cart with its rear platform stocked with pruning shears, saws, shovels, and maybe an edger, Pollock patrols the park’s 155 acres for trees and shrubs in need of seasonal maintenance or serious rehabilitation. During the last 18 months, Pollock has been on a mission to give the arboretum a much-needed and long overdue rejuvenation. Highland Park is unquestionably one of Rochester’s horticultural and historic jewels. While millions of dollars have been invested in improvements to the park’s conservatory, reservoir, and walkways, it’s the spectacular show of greenery that draws thousands of visitors and residents to Highland every year. Though its care may seem incidental, even periphery, a combination of technical knowledge, design, and field experience is essential to keep this unique exhibit in good health, Pollock says. And that care was neglected for a while, he says. “This is a collection,” he says. “It’s a lot like a collection of jewelry. The difference is that this is a living entity of trees and plants that require certain care.” Created in 1888 through an initial endowment of 20 acres to the city from nurserymen George Ellwanger and Patrick Barry, Highland was one of the country’s earliest urban arboretums. It’s one of several Rochester parks designed by legendary landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted, and it is home to the city’s biggest annual outdoor event, the Rochester Lilac Festival. Much like Kodak, Xerox, and the Genesee River, the rose-to-purplish flowering sprigs have helped to define Rochester. More than 500,000 visitors from as far away as Canada and Pennsylvania stroll through the cloud of more than 1,200 heavily fragranced lilacs each May. The park also features an almost endless array of ornamental trees and shrubs: Japanese maples, magnolias, rhododendrons, azaleas, service berry, viburnum, and hydrangea, to name a few. 6 CITY
JULY 31 - AUGUST 6, 2013
The pruning and caring of Highland Park’s greenery is physically demanding and time-intensive work, says Monroe County horticulturist Tom Pollock. PHOTO BY MARK CHAMBERLIN
Pollock earned a degree in horticulture from
Cornell and he has held positions at Cornell Cooperative Extension and in Monroe County’s park system, including supervisory roles. But it’s the field work — getting outdoors and working with the plants — that he says he enjoys most. “It’s one thing to learn about the insects and the damage they can do, the diseases, and soil conditions, but it’s completely different to see how it is applied in the field,” he says. “I especially like working with the older plants. There are some beautiful white oaks that have been here years.” Pollock is especially concerned about one of the park’s oldest white oaks. It was recently struck by lightning, he says, and will likely die from the damage. “It looks like somebody took a large can opener and lifted the bark open,” he says. “It’s a shame because you can’t easily replace a tree that’s been here for so long.” The park is intentionally maintained to look natural, Pollock says —picturesque, but not perfect. “It’s not a golf course,” he says. And there are two important considerations that he says guide his work: the health and appearance of the individual trees and shrubs, and preserving the park’s magnificent vistas. When pruning a small tree, for instance, Pollock says he starts by cutting out all of the dead and broken branches. Then he removes the cross branches because when limbs overlap and rub against each other,
they develop abrasions that expose the plant to disease and pests. Next he focuses on the natural form: does the shrub open and fan toward the top? Or does it tend to grow irregularly with twists and turns? The edges of the walkways through the park are often lined with a trail of Pollock’s cuttings and debris. Much of it is sent through a chipper and ultimately returned to the park as compost or mulch. “Sometimes I like to take the plant almost down to the ground and let it produce [shoots], and eventually, I’ll develop a new plant by working with one of those,” he says. Pollock recently worked on an autumn olive — a misnomer of sorts since the small tree is related to flowering cherries, he says. The tree was a ball of cross branches and switches, but Pollock carefully cleaned up the main stems. His cuts were smooth and almost seamlessly close to the stems, leaving the tree with an elegant canopy. Pollock says he has to consider how the tree’s structure will look in the spring when it’s flowering as well as how it appears through the rest of the seasons. The vistas are a different matter. Most people think that Olmsted left a precise plan with overriding jurisdiction concerning how the collection is arranged and where every tree and shrub is placed. What Olmsted did instead, Pollock says, was create vistas that act as scenes. While Olmsted envisioned groupings of similar plants, he also expected future
caretakers of the park to have their own interpretations of these arrangements, Pollock says. Maybe something new and different would be added to the viburnum collection, for example. Pollock has been adding Japanese and paperbark maples to various beds throughout the park to give some shade and protection to smaller shrubs. But the vistas should be respected, Pollock says. Olmsted had specific scenes and moods he wanted visitors to experience when walking through the park. And they changed with the seasons. It’s a complex quilt, Pollock says. Some are small and contained, and others open up to include the hills south of Rochester, almost extending the park for miles. Pollock says he was lucky to enter the field of horticulture when he did, because there were more jobs in the field 20 to 30 years ago. He says that Highland Park would make an ideal companion to Monroe Community College’s agricultural programs. “It’s my little soap box,” he says. “This is perfect place to apply what you learn. Agriculture is three-quarters of the way to horticulture.” But he says he hopes that as green industry matures, that the demand for workers will increase. “You probably won’t get rich doing this kind of work, but you’ll never have mental health problems, either,” he says.
Preservation continues from page 3
Once we start nibbling away at that protection, the district and its quality are at risk. This won’t be the only property that developers will find attractive. The development would also increase the neighborhood’s density, clearly affecting its character. It’s good that this city neighborhood is so popular, and it’s good that developers want to invest in the city. But just outside the preservation district, this neighborhood already has numerous apartments, many of them in houses converted from single- or two-family uses. Among the adverse results: an excess of cars, paved backyards, and noise. It is significant that the neighborhood group serving the area opposes the development. These are people who already live there and have made personal investments in the neighborhood. They are among the people who would feel the adverse impact of the development. Theirs are not the only interests that should be considered, of course. The Preservation Board could find that the project would have an adverse impact, but the Planning Commission could decide that the benefits of the development outweigh the negatives. I hope not. The Morgan development might provide a small economic boost to nearby businesses and add to the city’s tax rolls, but there are numerous other development sites available – including downtown, where the city wants more housing. A negative vote on this particular project is not a vote against new development. At stake is the question of what the neighborhood will be in the future. Will it continue to be a mix of tenants and homeowners, young singles and families and empty nesters? Or will it become predominantly a neighborhood of tenants? Also at stake: whether we support the intent of the preservation legislation – which protected the neighborhood’s architectural quality and generated its current popularity and strong tax base – or we start undermining it. (A disclosure: A reader complained – rightly – that I didn’t note in an earlier column that my husband and I own a two-apartment house adjacent to our home a couple of blocks from Morgan’s proposed project. Theoretically, new apartments could be competition for ours.)

Think globally, eat locally [ CHOW HOUND ] BY DAYNA PAPALEO
I hate to call an entire suburb onto the carpet — especially the beautiful one where I was born and raised — but Irondequoit has had somewhat of a restaurant problem. With a couple of exceptions, there’s never really been anything interesting to eat, unless you’re only ever in the mood for a pizza, a plate, or chicken freaking french. Looking for artisanal this or locally grown that? Too bad. But that was before Gerry and Diane Brinkman fired the first proverbial shot in Irondequoit’s food revolution. Not a moment too soon, either. I’m hungry. Perhaps you remember the Brinkmans from their stint helming the acclaimed Rochester Club restaurant. The years since its closing saw them dividing their time between running the Thousand Islands’ Wellesley Hotel in the summer and Gerry’s work as a food-service educator. Now they’re back on the Rochester restaurant scene with Atlas Eats. “We used to commute three hours; now it’s five blocks,” says Diane of the Brinkmans’ cheerful new eatery, located in the heart of Irondequoit’s Rawlinson-Barry
neighborhood, just east of the Seneca Park Zoo. Diane describes it as a “mom-and-pop place,” if your mom and dad not only made dishes like Buffalo-wing salmon for lunch ($9.95), but also sold you a freshly made baguette to take home. Globes and maps decorate Atlas Eats, where the open kitchen offers up flavors from all over the planet. The fluid menu might include a Greek salad ($7.95), kimchi fried rice with tofu ($8.95), or a satisfying veggie burger made with lentils and quinoa ($7.95) served alongside simply dressed greens from Farmington’s Pachamama Farm. Opposite the open kitchen is the bakeshop, where baker Brenda Roback makes such things as breads, cakes, biscuits, hand pies, the little Australian treats known as Lamingtons, a decadent flourless chocolate cookie with walnuts, and a nicely spiced oatmeal cookie bursting with raisins, cranberries, and chocolate chunks. Friday and Saturday evenings are the Edible Atlas dinner series, where Gerry creates a menu devoted to a specific cuisine. The first one explored the food of Italy, while the current one honors Spain through dishes like paella with chicken
and clams as well as flan ice cream. The Edible Atlas menus stay in place for two weeks, but reservations for the two seatings (6 p.m. and 8:30 p.m.) are somewhat crucial due to Atlas Eats’ snug size... unlike the world, which is quite large, and being brought to Irondequoit one carefully crafted plate at a time. Atlas Eats is located at 2185 N. Clinton Ave. It is open Thursday-Saturday 9 a.m.-6 p.m. and Sunday 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Lunch served 11 a.m.-3 p.m. Food prices range from $1 to $9.95. For more information, call 544-1300 or visit atlas-eats.com.

Watkins plays the role of both singer-songwriter and fiddle player, creating mellifluous bluegrass tunes — some of which comfort, while others electrify. Her voice is simple and pure, pairing nicely with the clear sound of her fiddle and the down-home feeling of her band. Watkins performs as part of Garrison Keillor’s A Prairie Home Companion Radio Romance Tour. — BY LEAH CREARY
The Head and the Heart THURSDAY, AUGUST 1 RIVERSIDE FESTIVAL SITE, COURT & EXCHANGE 5 P.M. | $2 | CITYOFROCHESTER.GOV/PIP [ INDIE/FOLK/ROCK ] Maybe it’s a backlash to all the bands that go to 11, but it seems like a lot of bands that are popping up on pop radar are unplugging. What bands like Seattle’s The Head and the Heart focus on is the melody and the awesome power it creates as it catches on and takes flight without the aid of all those grandiose megawatts. Formed in 2009, THATH tempers its acousticity with quirk and pop that reaches beyond indie constraints. There will eventually be a loud backlash of some sort (there always is), but enjoy the sweetness from bands like this while you can. — BY FRANK DE BLASE

SATURDAY, AUGUST 3 LOVIN’ CUP, 300 PARK POINT DRIVE 9 P.M. | $3-$5 | LOVINCUP.COM [ JAZZ ] Miche Fambro started out as a drummer. When he moved to the front of the stage, that’s when it became obvious that the singer-songwriter had the gift of a beautiful voice and the chops of a guitar maestro. Fambro returned to this region several years ago after more than a decade of touring as a soloist with his interests veering toward jazz. That genre must feel like another dimension considering Fambro’s past as front man of 80’s New Wave group Miche and the Anglos, but it has actually been a smooth transition. Faixa shares this bill. — BY ROMAN DIVEZUR

Jerry-rigged suitcase [ REVIEW ] BY FRANK DE BLASE
Thursday night I agitated the backstage gravel in the Gray Ghost with the Tin Man riding shotgun to catch Leon Russell at Party in the Park. Upon our arrival, Ithacabased Driftwood was serving up its whirling stomp-and-shout spin on bluegrass. The group brought excellent vocals and intensity, especially when the fiddle player wound up and bowed for the clouds. The crowd was one big, howling smile. This band needs to come back soon… Russell Rascal’d his way to the stage set up on the by-then packed parking lot under the bridge. Russell is a study in white, and looks a lot like how I thought god looked like, when I believed in god. Russell is waycool and understated as a vocalist, and at times it was hard to make out his words. The piano, however, rang loud and clear as the man’s digits summoned the boogie. Rolled by the Dinosaur with a backseat full of females to catch the blue symbiosis that was Steve Grills with his special guest — and big brother — Arizona-based guitar slinger Tom Grills. The two duked it out family style. Steve is an encyclopedia while
Tom is a shredder. It was cool to hold them both up to the light. Friday night, Los Straitjacket, Hi-Riser, and all-around rock ’n’ roller Greg Townson celebrated the release of his most excellent solo CD, “On Your Side.” Townson’s stripped-down performance — just the man, a Harmony Rocket, and a Jerry-rigged suitcase — showed how beautiful his songs are even without the polish and dressing. Townson is a treasure. Later that night I went from the sublime to the subsonic pummeling of Water Street for the Officer Friendly reunion with guests Eyesalve and Nasty Habit. Eyesalve’s set was an earsalve of big 90’s, not-too-grungy rock as it set off in its mid-tempo thunder and drive. Nasty Habit — the stars of the night, for me anyhow — rocked its collective brain out with period-correct 80’s-inspired metal. These guys have it down; the screaming guitars, the soaring vocals, the hooks, and the moves. The kids went bananas. Officer Friendly didn’t miss a beat and came out as tight and as loud as ever. It was nostalgia for a lot of the big crowd, but still made sense to first timers. Good rock will do that.

The Fox Sisters SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 7 ABILENE, 153 LIBERTY POLE WAY 9:30 P.M. | $5 | ABILENEBARANDLOUNGE.COM FACEBOOK.COM/THEFOXSISTERS
It was no big deal; just another night of rock ‘n’ roll in the Flower City. The smart set had shoehorned itself into Abilene on a Friday night in March for headliners 5Head and an unknown support act. You could’ve spread the energy with a spatula. It was palpable within the crowd-powered steam heat when seven musicians piled onto the stage area to get the rock ’n’ roll ball rolling. With a stomp and a whoop, the band floored it with a flipped-out frappe of soul and r&b. It was a soul-shaking, hip-quaking blast of Hell Yes. It was The Fox Sisters, and man, did the band ever lay it down. Forty-five fun minutes from the starting stomp and whoop, the crowd was collectively spent and elated. The wow factor makes sense given the band’s pedigree. The Fox Sisters includes singer Pat McNally, bassist Jimmy Filingeri, keyboardist Will Veeder, guitarist Dave Snyder, trumpeter Darren DeWispelaere, saxman Chris Oldfield, and drummer Brian Shafer. They have all earned (and in many cases, still earn) their bones in bands like The Thundergods (where Filingeri and McNally first played together), The Quitters, Dog’s Life, Hinkley, Veluxe, and Nod. Filingeri lit the Fox Sister fuse just over a year ago. Or perhaps it lit them. Filingeri was already a rabid record collector. “A few years ago Jimmy and I were getting into these live records,” says McNally. “Especially Sam Cooke’s ‘Live at the Harlem
Square Club’ and Gene Chandler’s ‘Live at the Regal.’ And we’d been listening to a lot of Sam and Dave.” “I’m a big record collector,” Filingeri admits. “I’m kind of obsessive. I don’t watch TV. Every time — when I have time — I’m listening to music.” Both of these cats listens to everything, yet arrived at classic soul as their next musical endeavor. McNally ventures a guess as to why. “For one thing, you listen to those albums and the spirit just grabs you, it just seems so perfect,” he says. “It’s rockin’ and it’s sexy. It’s also friendly and accessible; there’s no sneer to it. It’s more a call to have a good time, and for everyone to feel good.” Everyone at the band’s Abilene show heeded that call, and by the second song the crowd had shifted into full-on get-down gear. The boss blast and beat was seductive and irresistible as it transferred from onstage instruments to offstage anatomy. And the bandstand was a riot to watch as well, the musicians all bobbing and weaving around one another. With the septet all crammed in together it looked like one of those 1950’s “how-many-college-students-can-we-getinto-a-phone-booth” stunts. Despite its wide appeal, Filingeri refers
to The Fox Sisters’ sound as “grownup man’s music.” “It’s more mature as opposed to sneery punk rock, or than the Thundergods. Of everyone in the band, I’m the most musically inept. As far as knowing music, I’m good. Playing music… everything’s a challenge to me. And I have to work harder than anyone
else in the band to get where I need to be, but it’s worth it.” Listen close, listen casually. The band is up for the challenge of the music’s beguiling simplicity and truly delivers. “I think we have a feel for how the music should sound as a result of listening to a ton of music,” McNally says. “And we have an affinity for it where we are able to write some catchy songs. And then we are lucky we got a bunch of great musicians in the band.” The real secret to The Fox Sisters’ success is the band’s contemporary application of retro themes. The band is more now than then. “We’re not slaves to the retro sound, either,” Filingeri says. “It’s a template we’re using to convey that feeling of the bands we’ve seen live that have moved us. Bands like The Fleshtones. Or like The Essentials at Richmond’s, when you’re packed into that little space and you’re just having a blast. That’s kind of what we’re going for. While it has a template of r&b and soul music, we don’t pretend that we’re going to sound like Sam Cooke. We’re going to sound like us. It’s the spirit of the music that we’re trying to portray, the joy of the music.” The Fox Sisters’ onstage presence conveys a confident swagger thanks to the balls-tothe-wall bravado and destruction in Filingeri and McNally’s first band, The Thundergods. The members of that band could hardly play their instruments, but made up for it in sheer volume and attitude. “I think that’s a big part of why we thought we could try this band,” says Filingeri. “We’ve always been in over our heads.”

ROCK | CELEBRATING THE LIFE OF AARON PLUNKETT
Aaron Plunkett, owner of Aaron’s Alley on Monroe Ave., was a huge music fan who sold concert tickets (often without handling fees) and merchandise including items associated with his favorite group, the Grateful Dead. Plunkett died suddenly on July 20. Friends described him as a free spirit and as the sort of person that would give away a ticket even if you didn’t have money to attend the show. This tribute concert celebrating Plunkett’s life will feature music of the Grateful Dead performed by members of The Park Avenue Band, Cravin Bliss, Into the Now, Hollywood Squares, and others. All proceeds from this event will go to Plunkett’s children. Celebrating the Life of Aaron Plunkett will be held on Thursday, August 1, 6:30 p.m. at Water Street Music Hall, 204 N.

PUNK | OFF WITH THEIR HEADS
Two great writers get the musical treatment in the final concert of the 2013 Finger Lakes Chamber Music Festival. Mark Twain’s “War Prayer” pulls no punches in giving the business to sermons glorifying war and destruction, and has been set to music several times, most recently by the Festival’s music director Richard Auldon Clark. Premiered in 2012 by the Manhattan Contemporary Chamber Ensemble, the piece was praised by the New York Times. British poet A.E. Housman’s verse “On Wenlock Edge” inspired one of Ralph Vaughan Williams’ most beautiful works, a song cycle for tenor, string quartet, and piano. Soloist for both works is tenor Michael Slattery, who will also perform English folk songs and operatic arias.
The Twin City area has been a prolific breeding ground for punk and hardcore since the mid-70’s, and this Minneapolis-based outfit is dutifully following in the footsteps of respected area acts like Dillinger Four. Off with Their Heads formed in 2003 and, until the steadying effect of its most recent studio release, this year’s “Home,” the band maintained a grueling road schedule despite a dizzying array of line-up changes. The current composition — Ryan Young (guitar, vocals), Robbie Stewartwood (bass), and Justin Francis (drums) — is a poignant power-punk trio. The Emersons and Safety also perform at this show.
The concert takes place Saturday, August 3, 7:30 p.m. at Penn Yan Academy Auditorium, 305 Court St., Penn Yan. $20, students free. fingerlakes-music.org. — BY DAVID RAYMOND [ REGGAE/JAM ]

POP/ROCK | WAVVES
It’s difficult to categorize the type of music made by San Diego-based band Wavves. At times it’s an obvious ode to pop-punk, at others it’s a nod to the surf-rock sounds of the 60’s. Lead singer, guitarist, and songwriter Nathan Williams has created a sound that is hard to define. Wavves embraces a lo-fi, stoner aesthetic, which comes off as gritty, cool, and careless. However, that musical take is paired with a true gift for melody and structure that conveys anything but carelessness. The band released its second album, “Afraid of Heights,” earlier this year, and although the music is less gritty and more refined, the band has retained the off-beat sound that has made it a staple in the current independent music scene. Wavves performs with Dumb Angel and The Meanagers on Friday, August 2, 7 p.m. at The Club at Water Street Music Hall, 204 N. Water St. $16-$17. waterstreetmusic.com. — BY LEAH CREARY Dave McGrath.

Vision quest “Camelot” PART OF THE 2013 GLIMMERGLASS FESTIVAL THROUGH AUGUST 23 7300 STATE HIGHWAY 80, COOPERSTOWN $25-$132 | 607-547-2255, GLIMMERGLASS.ORG [ PREVIEW ] BY PALOMA CAPANNA
Growing up in north Jersey, I thought of life as a musical. Julie Andrews and Doris Day at the movies. Yul Brynner and Rex Harrison on Broadway. It was a big deal when I got old enough to take the bus into the city on my own and head to TKTS for discounted same-day show tickets, not caring which production it was because every marquee held the promise of escape. Speaking with David Pittsinger, currently starring as the legendary King Arthur in the Lerner and Loewe classic “Camelot” at the Glimmerglass Festival, you get the feeling that musical theater has the same draw for him: escape. To lift the audience out of daily life, Pittsinger has to transform himself into a credible king. He makes that sound easy. 16 CITY JULY 31 - AUGUST 6, 2013
“Arthur was not a king by birth,” says Pittsinger. “He pulls a sword from a stone. He does an extraordinary thing. He doesn’t know how to be a king. He’s just a regular person. He has no royal blood. And, yet, he tries to do these extraordinary things like the round table, like the civil courts.” Pittsinger’s imagination is hardly limited
to royalty. He grew up in Connecticut, near Mystic Seaport, with views of the Connecticut River meeting the Atlantic, his daydreams including sea captains, whaling, and pirates. He earned degrees from the University of Connecticut and Yale, through what he calls a most “circuitous route,” from soccer to trombone and choir to international law and economics before settling into music as his major his sophomore year. With training and performances in opera, Pittsinger has performed on opera and concert stages throughout the United States and Europe. Whether performing live from the Metropolitan Opera or in the world premiere of Philip Glass’ “The Perfect American” at Teatro Real
in Madrid, Pittsinger remains an artist committed to both classical and American musical theater. “Opera and musical theater are not dissimilar,” says Pittsinger. “They are more similar than not. The technical challenge is making seamless transitions in and out of the spoken work with so much dialogue to the singing.” All productions are unamplified at the Glimmerglass Festival. The productions are performed in the Alice Busch Opera Theater, a 914-seat theater with seats less than 70 feet from the stage, complete with sliding walls to the outdoors. “A character’s credibility begins with audibility,” says Pittsinger. “You have to be heard, not just as a singer, but also when speaking with underscoring. If you can’t be heard or can’t be understood, the audience might not get the detail from just the body language or the costume.” For Pittsinger’s role of King Arthur, there are the added challenges of the costumes, as well. “I was never more fearful than opening night,” says Pittsinger. “It was 100 degrees, it was humid, and I was wearing armor, chain
an amazing production that no one should miss. The orchestration is “full and complete and resplendent” under conductor James Lowe. And the director, Robert Longbottom, “has simplified it, cut certain scenes, gets the audience to the tunes, and brings out a heightened emotion through the music,” he says. “It’s music for the theater,” says Pittsinger. “It’s meant to be performed live.” When last I spoke with Francesca Zambello, artistic and general director for the Glimmerglass Festival, she had transformed Glimmerglass from “Glimmerglass Opera Festival” and had added an American musical-theater production to the annual offerings. Each of the annual festivals offers four productions, which open one after the other until all are up and running. This year, Zambello wanted “romantics,” selecting “Camelot,” Wagner’s “The Flying Dutchman,” Verdi’s “King for a Day,” and a pairing of “The Little Match Girl Passion” (Lang) with “Stabat Mater” (Pergolesi). But with “Camelot” in particular, Zambello says that there is also a notion of “questing.” “Arthur has a lot of self-doubt,” says Zambello, “and we doubt our leaders all the time. We work in this production to humanize Arthur to make our own leaders real. As we come up on the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President Kennedy, it’s good to look back at something that’s a classic and filter it through your world today.” Zambello is thrilled with the addition of an American musical-theater production to each annual festival. “It has brought out a lot more families, and then the kids say, ‘Let’s go see an opera,’” says Zambello. Zambello also says that there’s a thrill for audiences, and especially younger audience members, because there is no amplification. “People are thrilled to hear a musical acoustically,” says Zambello. “They cannot believe the voices because everything else they have heard has been synthesized and manufactured.” “Glimmerglass is one consistent home run after another,” says Pittsinger. “Every piece is received by the audience with awe.”

SPECIAL EVENT | THE AMAZING ACRO-CATS
People generally fall into two groups regarding felines: you either L-O-V-E them or you loathe them. The strange and adorable creatures have the run of many households, and have just about taken over the internet via photos, videos, and memes. Part of their charm/repulsion is that while you can train a dog to do tricks, common logic dictates that you forget ever trying to get your cat to do your bidding. But wait! Head to MuCCC (142 Atlantic Ave.) this week to witness The Amazing Acro-Cats, billed as one of only four “performing domestic cat troupes” in the United States. The fuzzy horde astounds audiences of all ages as it performs feats of agility, such as pushing carts, riding skateboards, rolling barrels, ringing bells, turning on lights, walking tight ropes, jumping through hoops, and performing in an all cat band, “The Rock Cats.” Most of the members of The Amazing Acro-Cats were adopted from shelters, and Master Trainer Samantha Martin has fostered more than 120 shelter kittens. She trains them to perform tricks and important emergency-situation maneuvers, and they take part in performances as they wait for their new homes. The show takes place Tuesday, August 6-Friday, August 9, at 7 p.m., and Saturday, August 10, and Sunday, August 11, at 1, 4, and 7 p.m. Tickets are $16 in advance and $18 at the door ($13 and $15 respectively, for kids under age 12).

FESTIVAL | 2013 MONROE COUNTY FAIR
County fairs are what they have always been to rural people — a social, festive atmosphere with the chance to win a blue ribbon for prize produce or livestock. But to city folk they are an opportunity to temporarily make contact with a long-forgotten and fascinating living-off-the-land existence. The 2013 Monroe County Fair features the expected shows of animals, flowers and vegetables, food, arts and crafts, live music, pulling competitions for lawnmowers, tractors, and horses, and a chance to meet the dairy princess. But the fair will also showcase Rochester Rampage Robotics, kid-friendly rides on the midway, and fun games for the whole family. The 2013 Monroe County Fair takes place Thursday, August 1-Sunday, August 4, at its new location at Northampton Park in the town of Ogden at Colby Street and Hubbell Road. Hours are Thursday 1-10 p.m., Friday 11 a.m.-10 p.m., Saturday 11 a.m.-10 p.m., and Sunday 11 a.m.-7 p.m. Tickets are $7 for the general public, $6 for seniors, and free for kids ages 12 and under.

Small, mediocre, and large 2013 Shaw Festival THROUGH NOVEMBER 3 NIAGARA-ON-THE-LAKE, ONTARIO, CANADA 800-511-SHAW, SHAWFEST.COM [ REVIEW ] BY MICHAEL LASSER
So far, I’ve seen only half the plays at this year’s Shaw Festival, so it wouldn’t be fair to draw final conclusions. But at this point the word for this season is — with exceptions — mediocre. Only director Jackie Maxwell’s production of George Bernard Shaw’s “Major Barbara” in the small Royal George Theatre transformed brilliant words on a page into the throbbing believability of live theater. The production’s three hours raced by in a great whirl of scintillating dialogue, intellectual ferment, and passionate conviction — Shaw and Maxwell at their best. People often complain that Shaw’s characters are nothing more than mouthpieces for the master’s own pronouncements. Sometimes that’s true, but as a friend of mine put it, the actors portraying Barbara (Nicole Underhay), her mother (Laurie Paton), her millionaire 20 CITY JULY 31 - AUGUST 6, 2013
industrialist father (Benedict Campbell), and her sweet but ineffectual fiance (Graeme Somerville) inhabit their roles and the convictions of their characters with such splendid persuasiveness that both they and what they believe spring irresistibly to life. Shaw loves to set convictions against one another, leading to crises of feeling and threats to relationships, and then let everybody argue it out. In this case, the daughter of an armaments manufacturer who will sell to anyone, is a committed member of the Salvation Army because it is everything her father is not. And yet, she will save souls no matter how degraded they are. Shaw’s controlling dialogue — he is always the unrepentant puppeteer — brings them into conflict and eventually into ironic agreement of a sort without ever losing face. Abe Burrows (book) and Frank Loesser’s (score) “Guys and Dolls” and Oscar Wilde’s “Lady Windermere’s Fan,” the two largest productions I saw, were — in their mediocrity — the most disappointing. I’m very fond of both plays and found it hard to believe that they could be so ham-handedly directed. In a street-smart fairy tale based on Damon
Runyon’s short stories, “Guys” shines its delectably garish light on two gamblers and their “dolls,” small-timer Nathan Detroit (Shawn Wright) and adorable showgirl, Miss Adelaide (Jenny L. Wright), and the smooth high-roller Sky Masterson (Kyle Blair) and Salvation Army missionary, Miss Sarah (Elodie Gillett). The show’s texture comes from Loesser’s eclectic score and brilliant lyrics, along with the Broadway types who inhabit a city that comes alive after midnight. To be fair, the production numbers, “Luck Be a Lady” and “Sit Down, You’re Rockin’ the Boat,” were supercharged, Thom Allison and the wonderful Billy Lake’s performance of the title song was winning, and Jenny L. Wright was at her best (by far) during the great comic soliloquy, “Adelaide’s Lament.” Overall, though, the production was often tedious and charmless despite all the noise and running around. Director Tadeusz Bradecki has little feel for a brassy American musical. One example: the opening comic ballet, “Runyonland,” that sets the tone and style of the show, got lost on an overly large stage, and the show slowed almost before it got going. Few of the actors felt like naturals at comedy, and, most importantly, there was no chemistry between Blair and Gillett. Sue Lepage’s costume design was too sedate; is tan really the best color for a lighthearted view of Broadway’s demi-monde? The second act of “Lady Windermere” was better than the very slow first act. Yet even though the production finally picked up, it never found the pace and rhythm it needed. A birthday ball for young Lady Windermere brings to London society an mysteriously worldly woman, Mrs. Erlynne, who entrances men by her intelligence and eroticism just as Lady W does it through her guilelessness and innocence. The long ball scene is cleverly written and crucial to the plot, but the staging was static and clumsy. The plot turns on Lady W’s moral purity, Mrs. E’s true identity, and how much honesty a good marriage can bear. Just who is this Mrs. Erlynne, and what does she have to do with the Windermeres? Wilde’s witty dialogue is in full flower as the plot works through deceptions and misunderstandings that threaten the Windemere’s marriage, leave their good friend Lord Darlington rootless, and expose the identity — and, ultimately, the decency — of Mrs. E. Wilde has written a delicious 19th century melodrama but enlivened it with the new attitudes of the approaching 20th century. Its brilliance and continuing appeal lie in its being a traditional play given spice by Wilde’s sense of modernity. The encounter between the two ways of seeing the world is
shocking, spirited, show-offy, and irresistible. Unfortunately, director Peter Hinton’s drearily self-conscious “vision” keeps intruding on what’s important — some artsy-fartsy posing at the start that adds nothing, the inexplicable diminution of Darlington as Lady W’s friend and potential lover, and an anachronistic folk-rock score that spells out what only an exceptionally obtuse audience would fail to understand. Most significantly, I find it impossible to believe that any man would find Marla McLean as Lady Windemere or Tara Rosling as Mrs. Erlynne entrancing. Like “G&D” and “Windermere,” “Our Betters” relies on deceptions in the profession of love and friendship. The Shaw is currently working through the plays of W. Somerset Maugham, a playwright and novelist whose reputation has declined since his 1965 death. “The Circle” and “The Constant Wife” were good plays worth reviving; “Our Betters” isn’t quite in their league. The play’s first two acts are crisp and bright and, in their way, brilliant because the female characters who dominate the plot are, themselves, bright and brilliant with a gift for talk that makes Maugham’s entertainment gay and frothy despite the growing sense that these women endure lives of — dare I say it — quiet desperation. They are American heiresses who went to Europe to marry poor aristocrats; it was a trade between women with money and men with titles and social position. Edith Wharton called them “The Buccaneers” in her final novel, but now they’re 10 or 20 years older, their marriages have gone sour, and they have to live by their wits, their genius for manipulation and gossip, and their attraction to rakes and bounders. At its best, the play’s appeal rests on the smart talk and the sparkling performances of Claire Jullien, Laurie Paton, and Catherine McGregor, all living splendidly in drawing rooms by Ken MacDonald and costumes by Charlotte Dean. Unfortunately, the sorting out in the last act takes so long that you pretty much stop caring that none of the women has the capacity to change. The final play I saw in my first trip, “Trifles,” is actually two very small plays done as the Noontime Theater—“Trifles” by Susan Glaspell and “A Wife for a Life,” Eugene O’Neill’s first play. They are indeed trifles, though the performances of Kaylee Harwood and Julain Molnar in the Glaspell play were strong, sure, and defined in the space of 20 minutes. Check back next week for Michael Lasser’s second round of reviews of the 2013 Shaw Festival line-up.

The cast of “MoM: A Rock Concert Musical,” currently on stage at Geva Theatre.
Behind the music ‘MoM: A Rock Concert Musical’ THROUGH AUGUST 3 GEVA THEATRE CENTER, 75 WOODBURY BLVD. TICKETS START AT $38 | 232-4382, GEVATHEATRE.ORG [ REVIEW ] BY ERIC REZSNYAK
“MoM: A Rock Concert Musical” is the second and final show in Geva’s summer 2013 season. Along with the previous show, “Big Pants & Botox,” it’s fairly light, femaleleaning fare. (Geva did have a more serious piece, a Robert Forster-starring Ronald Reagan play, initially on the summer schedule, but it was cancelled.) The thing about “MoM” is that it is fascinatingly, sometimes infuriatingly, inconsistent. At times, the show rises above the accessible concept with some surprisingly moving sequences courtesy of five talented performers. And there are times when it is so cheesy that I literally cringed in my seat. “MoM” was written and directed by Richard Caliban, and was an awardwinning production at the 2009 New York International Fringe Festival. The show tells the story of a quintet of mothers who set aside stereotypical suburban life to live out their put-on-pause dreams of musical stardom. The structure is that of a reunion concert in which the members of the band,
also called MoM, tell their stories through song while acting out what happened. The conceit works only as long as you don’t think about it. How many rock concerts have you attended that include dramatic reenactments of band fights or awkward discussions with surly children? The five performers in the show are all actors with musical backgrounds or musicians exploring acting. That’s essential, because they play their own instruments throughout the show — some of them play several — in addition to singing and acting. The music in “MoM” is original, and several of the songs are legitimately catchy pop-rock tunes. But stylistically it’s all over the place, with ventures into jazz, country, and even Latin sounds. That broad reach is the show’s biggest flaw, and it extends beyond the unrealistic musical mix. Caliban’s writing can sometimes be quite witty and insightful, but on multiple occasions it descends into, frankly, pandering. A song called “Moms in Thongs” automatically sets the bar pretty low. Then the women on stage literally pulled cotton panties out of their pants and threw them into the audience. That kind of clumsy obviousness also manifested in some of the directing. Did the bored, rich housewife singing the vapid song “Lady of Leisure” really need to be swanning about the stage holding an empty plastic martini
glass to underscore the point of the song? It suggests a lack of faith in the audience, or creative over-indulgence. The cast executes the material’s peaks and valleys with more consistency. All of them are clearly talented — some are stronger musically than they are at the acting, others the opposite — but there are a few standouts. Bekka Lindstrom is magnetic as Melissa, the most believable character in the group. She comes across as a mix of Uma Thurman and Talking Heads’ David Byrne, and she comes alive as she attacks the songs with her low, character-filled voice. She’s also a skilled, natural actor. I wanted to see more from her. (The show is split up fairly evenly between the five performers.) Stefanie Seskin is a classically trained flutist — she also plays bass and sax in the show — and has the most satisfying arc in the show as Catalina. Her transformation from buttoned-up prude to totally unbuttoned rock diva is one of the most engaging parts of the program, and Seskin is believable every step of the way. Early in the show Seskin was flustered, trying to pick out notes and cursing herself as she missed lyrics. Later she strutted about the stage and purred out her song, “You Can’t Fuck ‘Em All.” That sounds like a challenge, as well as a great, crowdpleasing anthem.

Dr. Brian Bailey, associate professor of adolescence education at Nazareth College, and Linda Moroney, programmer of Greentopia Film, are the co-founders of the Rochester Teen Film Festival, a collaborative, juried media competition for youth in the Rochester region, held in order to give area youth the chance to show off their creations. Every-other summer, the festival offers kids ages 13-18 an opportunity to partake in a teen film camp, featuring mini-workshops and guided participation in the art of filmmaking and the science of digital video production (the next camp will be held in the summer of 2014). Earlier in the year, an open call was held for film and videos in all genres made by regional high-school students. On Wednesday, August 7, in association with the WXXI Public Broadcasting Council and the Little Theatre, Nazareth College will present the 2013 Rochester Teen Film Festival at the Little Theatre (240 East Ave.) at 5:30 p.m., during which the winning films will be shown on the main screen.

THEATER | FIGHT WITH LOVE 2013
The 7th Annual Fight With Love musical-theater benefit for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS will be held this weekend. The student-run event is a manifestation of the commitment of local youth in the theater community to help combat the HIV/AIDS epidemic by telling the emotional stories of victims of the disease, and raising awareness of the ongoing battle within our community. To date Fight With Love has raised more than $18,000 for the charity. The program features young performers drawn from area high schools or home from college on summer break performing songs from popular musicals such as “West Side Story,” “Rent,” “Side Show,” “Sweet Charity,” “Brooklyn,” “25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee,” “Merrily We Roll Along,” “Into the Woods,” “Godspell,” “Follies,” and “Newsies.” Geva has donated the space for the performance, donated desserts will be sold at intermission for the charity, and great prizes will be raffled off at the event. Performances will take place on Friday, August 2, at 7 p.m.; Saturday, August 3, at 2 & 7 p.m.; and Sunday, August 4, at 5 p.m., at Geva Theatre Center’s Nextstage (75 Woodbury Blvd.). Tickets are $10 and can be purchased by calling 232-4382, online at gevatheatre.org, or at the door. Pictured is an image from last year’s production, “Guilty Ones.” — BY REBECCA RAFFERTY

Another story for our time “Fruitvale Station”
(R), WRITTEN AND DIRECTED BY RYAN COOGLER NOW PLAYING [ REVIEW ] BY GEORGE GRELLA
Arriving laden with prizes from the usual festivals, “Fruitvale Station” demonstrates once again the relevance of the small, independent films shoehorned into the narrow space amidst the noisy blockbusters, witless comedies, and insipid chick flicks that clog the summer screens. Along with such documentaries as “Capitalism: A Love Story,” and “The Tillman Story,” and a docudrama like “Fair Game,” it

shows how some filmmakers take up the slack of an indolent and cowardly media, which rarely fulfill their obligation to investigate fully so many controversial stories. A docudrama, “Fruitvale” shows the last day in the life of Oscar Grant, a young black man from Oakland, California, who was killed in the early moments of 2009 by the police in the BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) station of the title. The story begins with some actual images from the cell phones of the bystanders who witnessed the incident, then shifts back 24 hours to the beginning of the end of Oscar’s life, chronicling a great many moments from the day he never suspected would be his last. Oscar (Michael B. Jordan), who lives with his girlfriend Sophina (Melonie Diaz) and their daughter Tatiana (Ariana Neal), seems a good natured, if feckless young man, devoted to Sophina and Tatiana, but also involved in illegal enterprises. No saint, he deals in drugs and has served time in San
Quentin for some unspecified but presumably serious offense. He lies to Sophina and his mother, Wanda (Octavia Spencer), about being fired from his job at a supermarket for habitual lateness. He spends his day driving all over Oakland, buying food for his mother’s birthday party, chatting with friends, and proving that he is a good person at heart, a point the director belabors mercilessly. He pets a stray dog, then grieves when a careless driver hits the poor animal, helps a customer at the supermarket with his grandmother’s recipe for gumbo, demonstrates his closeness with his loving family, and drives to the seashore to meet one of his clients, contemplates his life, and dumps his bag of marijuana in the ocean. At her birthday party, his mother advises him to take the BART train into San Francisco for a New Year’s Eve celebration with his friends, so there will be no danger of driving drunk — a decision that seals his doom. On the way back from the city to Oakland, an old enemy attacks him in the crowded car and all hell breaks loose. The transit police arrive, rough up all the young African Americans (naturally), and amid the panic and confusion, a cop shoots the handcuffed Oscar in the back, the act captured on the cell phones of the other passengers. Oscar’s story and the circumstances of his death are of course sadly all too familiar in our

Claws and effects “The Wolverine” (PG-13), DIRECTED BY JAMES MANGOLD NOW PLAYING [ REVIEW ] BY ADAM LUBITOW
time and place, and especially relevant in its rough parallels to so many cases, including the killing of Trayvon Martin. The punishment of the police officers implicated in Oscar’s death seems entirely inadequate to the severity of the offense, another unsurprising verdict. The director, Ryan Coogler, employs an appropriately direct and generally neutral stance, allowing the story in effect to tell itself. The frequent shots of the BART trains going by suggest the inevitable fate that awaits Oscar. Coogler’s frequent use of a hand-held camera keeps the essentially simple, straightforward action lively and reinforces the documentary feel of the film. Although “Fruitvale Station” rather heavily underlines Oscar’s inherent goodness and decency, both the settings and the actors create a sense of authenticity. As in a genuine documentary, the camera at times seems to eavesdrop on the real lives of real people dwelling and working in real places. They rarely appear to be acting rather than simply living and very little seems fake or off key. Of all the people in the picture, the most impressive is Octavia Spencer as Oscar’s mother. She brings tremendous strength and depth to the character, whether sternly dealing with his criminal activity in a quietly powerful visit at San Quentin or calming Oscar’s friends waiting and praying as he lies dying in the hospital. Her exceptional work summarizes the successes of an important, if imperfect work of cinema.
“The Wolverine” marks the sixth time that Hugh Jackman has portrayed the beloved mutant superhero known as Wolverine (that includes his tiny, brilliant cameo in “X-Men: First Class”) over the past 13 years. It’s the most times a single actor has portrayed any comic-book character on the big screen, and by now the role fits him like a glove. Like Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, at this point it’s nearly impossible to imagine any other actor in the part. This is the second standalone film starring Wolverine separate from his X-Men teammates, following 2009’s disappointing “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” (which, full disclosure, I heard such terrible things about that I never bothered to see). Thankfully, this time around, new director to the series James Mangold (“Walk the Line,” “3:10 to Yuma”) has delivered a film worthy of the character and of Jackman’s performance. Inspired (very loosely) by the celebrated limited series of Wolverine comics from the 80’s, written by Chris Claremont and Frank Miller, the film picks up with Logan

still recovering from the events of “X-Men: The Last Stand.” He’s haunted by dreams of Jean Grey, the woman he loved, but was forced to kill at the end of that film. Now in full Grizzly Adams mode, he’s living in the Canadian wilderness, befriending the bears, and vowing never to hurt another living creature ever again. Naturally, since this is a superhero action movie, that vow doesn’t last too long. After making himself extremely conspicuous during a barroom scuffle, Logan is approached by a young woman named Yukio (Rila Fukushima), who has tracked him down for the purposes of bringing him to Japan at the behest of Yashida (Hal Yamanouchi), an old acquaintance who we learn in the film’s prologue was saved by Logan during the bombing of Nagasaki. A wealthy business tycoon, Yashida now lies on his deathbed, apparently wanting to say goodbye to the man to whom he owes his life in the first place. But things aren’t entirely as they seem, and soon the hero finds himself embroiled in a plot beyond his understanding, becoming the default protector of Yashida’s granddaughter, Mariko (Tao Okamoto), and fending off an endless sea of villainy, including the Yakuza, samurai warriors, and hordes of ninja assassins. More people get sliced and diced over the course of this movie than in a typical “Friday the 13th” installment, but of course it’s all utterly bloodless in order for the film to secure that all-important PG-13 rating. What I’ve enjoyed most about the recent crop of superhero films is the way studios and filmmakers have gradually realized that there’s room for different types of stories to be told within that genre. Not every story needs to revolve around the heroes putting a stop to some supervillain’s elaborate plan for world domination, and “The Wolverine” feels like the culmination
of that wonderful realization. With its (relatively) low-stakes plot, the film unfolds like a mystery drenched in the trappings of stylishly pulpy noir thrillers. It’s a tone the film manages to maintain all the way up until the rather cartoony climax, when it feels as though Mangold suddenly remembered that when making a superhero movie, there are certain tropes he’s obligated to include, and he started dutifully working his way through them, complete with excessive CGI battles. But until that point, the movie is pretty fantastic and Mangold delivers a nice balance of character-based drama and exciting combat sequences, including a thrilling fight atop a speeding bullet train. Jackman once again commits completely to the role. He delivers a fully rendered performance and even after all these years, the actor shows no signs of tiring of the character. Newcomer Rila Fukushima turns in the other performance highlight of the film as Yukio. Her character is totally kick-ass, and best of all, she’s allowed to be strong all the way through; she’s never reduced to needing to be rescued by the hero. Tao Okamoto is also quite good, and while Mariko isn’t the badass Yukio is, she’s allowed to show her strength in other ways as the film progresses. She also has a nice chemistry with Jackman, and the gradual development of her character into a love interest for Logan is handled well. I haven’t mentioned the villainous femme-fatale of the film, Viper (Svetlana Khodchenkova), and while there are some fun visual effects involving her character, she feels completely extraneous to the plot of the film. Her scenes often feel out of place, and I’m not sure if it’s the actor’s performance or simply that her character embodies all the silliest aspects of the standard comic-book movie that “The Wolverine” otherwise skillfully avoids.

A Rosy View on Roseview 59 Roseview Avenue 59 Roseview Avenue is located in the Homestead Heights neighborhood, home to famous local businesses like Savoia Bakery and Donuts Delite, near the junction of Culver Road, Clifford Avenue, and Empire Boulevard. This three bedroom and one bath home sits on a quiet, tree-lined street. Built in 1937, many of the home’s period features have been preserved, both inside and out. One of those features is the old-fashioned ribbon driveway, comprised of parallel concrete slabs separated by a grass median. The modest landscaping includes hydrangeas and rhododendrons. As you enter the home from the covered front porch, immediately on the right is the staircase to the upper level; straight ahead is the corridor to the kitchen; and on the left is the generous-sized living room. The focal point of this room is the decorative brick fireplace nestled between built-in bookshelves and topped with a handsome gumwood mantle. The design on the bookshelves’ glass doors mimics the design of the overhead leaded windows. The cheery yellow paint and crown molding continue into the formal dining room. A matching set of ornate leaded windows with beveled glass unify the spaces. Both rooms showcase the original gumwood trim and hardwood floors. The open floor plan lends itself well to entertaining during the holidays and throughout the year. From the dining room a door leads to the kitchen. Cream and beige tiled backsplash provide a neutral backdrop to this inviting
space. The kitchen has white wooden cabinetry and wooden laminate flooring. Sliding glass doors further brighten the room and open to a spacious wooden deck. This space is perfect for summer barbeques and outdoor dining. In the corridor connecting the kitchen to the front foyer is a substantial walkin pantry for additional storage. A single leaded glass window brings light to the base of the carpeted staircase. Upstairs, the master bedroom boasts a walk-in closet with laundry chute and connects to the sleeping porch—a perfect play area for children or media rec room. Directly opposite the master bedroom are two additional bedrooms, either of which could be used as a study or home office. The walk-up attic provides plenty of extra storage space. Additional storage can be found in the two large upstairs hallway closets. The updated bathroom, painted a soothing sage color, retains the original tub, but now has sliding glass doors and a whitetiled shower wall with charcoal-colored floral accent tiles. Positioned in a nook behind the tub is the vanity sink with the same white tile as its backsplash. 59 Roseview Ave. offers a comfortable 1,403 square feet and is listed at $89,500.

To locate an entity near you, you may call the tollfree helpline maintained by the New York State Banking Department at 1-877-BANKNYS (1877-226-5697) or visit the Department’s website at www.banking.state. ny.us.
