MUSIC | BY FRANK DE BLASE | PAGE 12 | ILLUSTRATION BY AUBREY BERARDINI
Hip-hop in Rochester: turn the beat around As boisterous and bombastic as hip-hop tends to be, it is still a genre preceded by public misperception, generalization, and out-and-out dismissal. As with any genre of music, the ears of those outside its fan base are often assailed by topical, shallow misrepresentations of the form. Minds get made up, hasty conclusions get drawn. Not only does this leave the listener unchallenged and unengaged, it hurts artists that possess true talent, insight, and soul. They’re left holding the bag, to apologize, and languish in the underground. Rochester is ripe with these artists; positive, innovative talents who mirror our society, raise
awareness, or merely entertain with their verbal dexterity and skill. Yet as diverse as our overall music scene is, ignorance and fear make the already uphill battle for artistic recognition that much steeper. In an effort to clear up, explain, and discuss hip-hop as music, as social commentary, and as an American folk art, City Newspaper invited a number of Rochester hip-hop artists to share their views in a kind of local hip-hop summit. While in no way a definitive take on hip-hop in Rochester, what follows is a frank, unapologetic conversation we hope will spawn more debate and discussion.

Get involved in anti-frack efforts
In July, I traveled to Washington with a busload of other local people for a rally to help convince our government to protect its people for the devastating assault on public health and safety that is called hydrofracking. This national effort drew about 5000 people. Ten years ago, when I went to DC to protest against the looming Iraq war, the Mall was filled with 300,000 people. It could be argued that the Iraq war was a less immediate threat to Americans than the destruction of our drinking water by hydrofracking, which affects potentially millions of people. Nothing impacts human health more immediately and profoundly than access to clean, potable water. We are literally fighting for our lives against a giant polluted wave of greed, money, and ignorance that is the gas industry. It makes no sense to go on about the war on drugs and the war on terror if we allow our own corporations to kill us. If we are to put the fear of God into those charged with protecting us, we need to have more than 5000 people. Get involved. JOHN KASTNER, ROCHESTER
was when he said: “The hearing is not the issue. It’s the surviving after having been heard that’s the issue.” We can get the disadvantaged to speak up, but without a plan to help both the advantaged and disadvantaged, we cannot progress. Somehow we need to make kindness and caring “sexy” and “cool” again so that people will do it. Luckily, caring and kindness are self-seeding. The more you show it, the better you feel and the more you want to continue doing it. Rochester is indeed lucky to have such a wonderful man as one of her citizens. We need more people like Rev. McMickle, who are not afraid to discuss these politically charged issues, who are not interested in laying blame, but want to look at the reality of the situation and speak openly and honestly about what needs to be done to change direction.

Guns and rights
On a reader’s comment linking violence in movies, on TV, and in video games to gun violence (Feedback): The impact of violent movies, TV shows, and video games on “sick individuals” is open for debate. But what is not debatable is that James Holmes was a lawabiding citizen who acquired his guns legally. As did Seung-Hui Cho of Virginia Tech infamy. So do we sit around debating who or what is more to blame while the body count rises? CHAIM DELOY

While visiting the Finger Lakes from Ontario, Canada, I saw the headlines: “All this money and students can’t read: what?!” (I’m a teacher) and “Organic Farmers Continue Fight with Monsanto” (we’re farmers), so I decided to pick up the paper. Turns out the most interesting article by far was the interview with Rev. Marvin McMickle. That man certainly has his head screwed on correctly. He speaks so eloquently and passionately about societal problems, which are pretty much the same in our rural Ontario community. We don’t have race problems, yet I see white students daily exhibiting the same “hopeless” behavior as the young black male population in the US. In my opinion, the most interesting point the Reverend made
Posted on rochestercitynewspaper.com The gun-nuts interpret the Second Amendment as seemingly the MOST important amendment and believe that it should apply to everyone no matter what the case. Really, it should be a privilege to have a gun after you have proved that you aren’t a crazy person, or even just someone who has any idea what they’re doing. That it took me a year to get a driver’s license, yet I could buy a gun without any training is ludicrous. HAVAHD ST

Mt. Morris’s good old socialist
I was glad to see the name of Francis Bellamy in the caption below the photo of Mt. Morris storefronts at the head of the article “The Mt. Morris Miracle” (July 18). That lets old socialists like me write in to remind readers
that Bellamy was more than the writer of the Pledge of Allegiance. In this fractured time in our country, mention of the author of the Pledge is a grand opportunity to remind some and inform others that Bellamy, born in Mt. Morris, was a socialist. “Socialist” has not always been a dirty word in these United States, and it shouldn’t be today. DENNIS WIENK, ROCHESTER
Romney vs. Obama
How about discussions about what government is not capable of providing? (“Romney and Ryan,” Urban Journal). Obama made more promises in 2008 than any presidential nominee EVER (over 500). Look at his biggest promises: To cut the deficit in half; he has nearly tripled it. To be a unifier; things are undeniably more divisive. Health care reform; premiums are already up between 8 and 9 percent, more than a million have lost their insurance provider, doctors hate it, most of America doesn’t want it, not to mention it was rammed through after no one read it. And the economy! All we have heard is excuses. This is a bloated, unreliable mess of a government, with arrogance to boot. Democrats are giving away other people’s money and then acting as if they are generous and caring because of it. It’s not generosity when it’s not your money. CHI

urban journal | by mary anna towler
The City School District: Can this system work? “Who is in charge of America’s urban schools? Everyone and no one. We Americans love divided government. Distrustful of power, we established a constitution with three branches of government, each designed to check the power of the others. “We have done the same thing with our schools. What could be more important than our children? Who can we trust to be in charge? We have diffused power over schools to state legislatures, to school districts, to the federal government, to state and federal courts, and de facto to education professionals and teacher unions. Diffused power is great for preserving stability; it makes change almost impossible.” There you have the beginning of “What School Boards Can Do,” a book by Donald R. Adams, president of the Center for Reform of School Systems and a former Houston school board president. “Diffused power… makes change almost impossible”: You’re looking at the Rochester school district. I don’t bring up the Adams quote to make another pitch for mayoral control. We’ll never get it. And Adams isn’t pushing mayoral control; he’s pushing for stronger school boards and stronger superintendents, working as a team. Is that possible here? I don’t want to exaggerate the latest disagreements between school board members and Superintendent Bolgen Vargas – whom they selected only four months ago – but frankly, those disagreements are troubling. Some board members are furious that Vargas has hired a strong critic of the district, former Rochester Deputy Mayor Patty Malgieri, as his chief of staff. That flack will probably blow over, but it brings up an important issue: the role of the school board. By law, the superintendent reports to the school board, and the board is literally in charge of nearly everything. It approves purchasing the textbooks and the curriculum used in the schools, for instance. It approves the hiring of every teacher and principal – an unrealistic job, given the district’s size. It does not, however, have authority over the people hired for the superintendent’s “cabinet”: the top administrators. That includes Malgieri. That’s not the only disagreement the board has had with Vargas. He wanted to close School 16, which badly needs costly repairs. Vargas says the district has too many buildings
Should the school board be involved in choosing who will train teachers? Should it overrule the superintendent on school closings?” for its population, and he’s conducting a study to recommend how to downsize. The board overruled him on School 16, though, so the repairs will be made. Last year, when he was interim superintendent, the board fought him over closing School 6. And earlier this month, two board members lashed out at Vargas for not following through on one of their directives: hiring staff from a community-based program to train city teachers in cultural sensitivity and in increasing parent involvement. Should the board be involved in such things as choosing who will train teachers? Should it overrule the superintendent on school closings? Legally it can. But should it? The Rochester school board’s challenges won’t get any easier. Money will become increasingly tight. That will put even more pressure on the district to spend every dollar effectively. Could a strong school board and a strong superintendent, acting as a team, pull that off? Could a strong team close down selected schools despite the protests of parents and teachers? Could it resist the pressure to hire (or not hire) specific people and use specific programs? Could it find a way to make sure that ineffective teachers and principals are helped to improve – and are removed from the district if they don’t? Right now, too many special interests, large and small, are pulling in too many directions, thwarting (and sometimes driving out) superintendents. This board could pull itself together and work with Vargas. But it will have to focus on the things that matter – on policy and goals, not every detail. And if its seven disparate members can’t do that, somebody will have to develop a strong, cohesive majority that can.

City, fire union end squabble
The City of Rochester has reached an agreement with its firefighters union over the Two Percent Fund. The fund is money paid to the city by out of state insurance companies, and is currently valued at $6.95 million. The city and the union have been involved in a longterm legal dispute over the use of that money. Per the agreement, some of the money will be used to buy firefighter turnout gear, breathing equipment, laundry and linen services for firefighters, and new uniform shirts. Money will also pay for the repair of fire stations, to buy new emergency station generators, and to construct a building “dedicated to the benefit of all active firefighters,” says a press release from the city.

The Hall of Shame, which is a satirical website, was created by the Getting Our Money’s Worth Coalition, which is made up of labor and progressive activist groups from across the state. The website is meant to draw attention to companies that receive tax breaks but either fail to create jobs or create low-paying jobs, says a coalition press release. (Ward’s Hall of Shame entry is online at gettingourmoneysworth.org/fingerlakes-vwr-international/) Ward’s parent company, VWR International, shut down a warehouse in Erie County after its tax breaks expired, the coalition says. Then it hired part-time workers at its Monroe County operation. Last year, the Monroe County Industrial Development Agency gave VWR tax incentives for a $2.3 million expansion of its Henrietta warehouse. VWR also pledged
to maintain its current level of employment in Monroe County and to even add positions. A review by the state Authorities Budget Office, however, found that neither Ward nor COMIDA broke the law. COMIDA did not appear to condition the Monroe County tax breaks on Ward’s relocating jobs from Erie County, the report says. Instead, it looks like one subsidiary company created jobs while another continued to reduce its work force, the report says. But the coalition says that Ward’s parent company continues to benefit from taxpayer subsidies even though, when its Erie and Monroe County work forces are combined, it has actually cut jobs. That’s why the coalition inducted the company into the Hall of Shame, it says.
When people think of brain damage, they usually imagine a catastrophic event that kills people or leaves them in a coma. But blows to the head can injure the brain in ways that aren’t always apparent.
MEDICINE | by Tim Louis Macaluso
POLITICS | BY CHRISTINE CARRIE FIEN
Blood on the brain Head injuries bring roughly 1.7 million people to the nation’s emergency rooms every year. During his early years in emergency medicine, Dr. Jeffrey Bazarian worried about these patients and the severity of their injuries. He says he couldn’t even be sure if someone had a concussion. The technology has improved, Bazarian says, but he’s not satisfied. Bazarian, an associate professor at the University of Rochester Medical Center, has been on a 15-year search for a blood test to serve as an objective marker to determine if a patient has a concussion or brain injury — the way an X-ray identifies fractures. A blood test would be economical and easy to administer right after the injury, when information-gathering is vital. And it could reduce exposure to unnecessary radiation from other technologies like CAT scans. After numerous studies — including developing the nation’s first emergency room traumatic brain injury registry at Strong Memorial Hospital — Bazarian says he is close to his goal. But he says that what he has learned along the way concerning blows to the head may be just as important. When people think of brain damage, they usually imagine a catastrophic event
that kills people or leaves them in a coma, Bazarian says. But blows to the head can injure the brain in ways that aren’t always apparent, he says. “The injury might be subtle, but it’s there,” Dr. Jeffrey Bazarian. Photo BY MATT DETURCK Bazarian says. A test developed in the mid 2000’s called diffusion tensor imaging detects slight swelling of axons — the long fibers that transmit neural signals. The swelling occurs when the axons are overly stretched, he says. In two recent studies involving athletes, Bazarian and his colleagues showed that even though no concussions were detected in most of the athletes, the DTI scans showed brain damage correlating with the number of times they were hit. The long-term ramifications are significant, especially for professional athletes, soldiers, and other people who may experience lowlevel, repetitive head blows, Bazarian says.

Iffy results for incentive pay
Yogurt, Lake Ontario, and cow patties
The Rochester school district has paid thousands of dollars in extra income to teachers through programs designed to test incentive pay. The state and federal governments are investing in the programs — one in its third year and another set to launch in the fall — to test a key component of education reform: Does incentive pay lead to improvements in student outcomes? But the results so far have been mixed. The extra income teachers have earned has mostly been for time spent in professional development. Goals set for improvements in student achievement, however, have fallen short. One program, the East High School teacher incentive agreement, completed its second school year last June. Teachers at East established six school-wide goals that had to be met to earn the additional pay. The goals were supposed to be challenging, but attainable. For example, one of the academic goals for teachers was to increase graduation rates from 42 percent to 50 percent for East students who began ninth grade in September 2008 and graduated in June 2012. Another goal: increasing the percentage of students passing the English language Regents exam from 69 to 85 percent for students who graduated in 2012. Teachers could have earned a maximum of $1,650 if they met their academic goals and $800 for professional development goals. But none of East’s teachers met the academic goals, says Susan HasenauerCurtis, the district’s director of school innovation. About 34 teachers did receive $800 for completing 24 hours of professional development instruction and 73 received about $1,350 after completing at least 36 hours of instruction. The second initiative, the Teacher Incentive Fund, is a multiple schools, five-year program that gets under way this fall. Both teachers and principals are participating, and the goal is to earn a “highly effective” rating on their next professional evaluation. But the program has a twist. In one group of 10 schools, the teachers and principals will be rewarded with extra pay — about 10 percent of the school’s average median salary — if they meet their goal. The teachers also had to agree to allow classroom observations as they taught. In another group of 10 schools, the teachers and principals have the same goal, but they will not be rewarded even if they succeed. City

Rewarding workers for exceptional performance is a tactic commonly practiced in the private sector, often to motivate employees. Education reformers have also touted the benefits of incentive pay in public schools as a way to increase teacher morale, saying that highly effective teachers should be rewarded with perks and bonuses. Average or mediocre performance shouldn’t be rewarded, reformers say. But Professional development can be demanding for teachers, says Susan the current system Hasenauer-Curtis, the city school district’s director of school innovation.

New York’s yogurt boom may have an unseen byproduct: cow poop. The yogurt boom could be a muchneeded boost for the state’s dairy farmers. As companies increase yogurt production, they’ll need more milk. Governor Andrew Cuomo sees such potential that, during a state yogurt summit last week, he promised to loosen a key set of dairy industry environmental regulations. Dairy farmers say that the proposed changes would make it easier for them to expand their herds. Dairy farmers have long complained about a specific state permit that they need to get if they have more than 200 cattle. The concentrated animal feeding operations permit requires farmers to develop plans preventing nutrient pollution runoff. Cuomo wants to raise that threshold to 300 cattle, which would exempt more dairy farms from the requirement. Politicians, businesspeople, and some citizens across the state are clamoring for the state to eliminate regulations that they say stifle growth. Many voices, then, welcomed the governor’s promise to dairy farmers. In this case, however, the change may provide some small measure of relief for farmers, but it could exacerbate environmental problems elsewhere. The CAFO permit is a preventive measure meant to limit nutrient runoff from livestock farms; in the case of dairy farms, those nutrients come from cow poop. Nutrient pollution has been a persistent problem for the Genesee River and the near-shore area of Lake Ontario. Many of the permitted CAFOs are within the Genesee River watershed, particularly the section that lies within Wyoming, Genesee, and Livingston counties. And many more are located within the Lake Ontario basin, the area where water ultimately drains into the lake. Ontario Beach Park and Durand-Eastman beach already close frequently, and nutrientdriven algae blooms are often a factor. Exempting additional farms from the CAFO permit has the potential to exacerbate Lake Ontario’s near-shore algae problems.

Dining with a starchy scoop, beautifully toasted rounds of crostini brushed with olive oil and herbs and served alongside a ramekin of finely ground and seasoned pork topped with a cute half-moon of pure lard. The pork was remarkably mild and instantly addictive, particularly when paired with slices of pickled onions and a bit of housemade mustard — salty, meaty, spicy and crunchy all in one bite. You would expect that the former chef at Max Chophouse would have a dab hand at meat, and you won’t be disappointed here. While you can find strip steaks and rib-eyes on the menu, as well as a very promisingsounding burger, it’s clear that Lindahl loves his skirt steak ($19). Served gloriously rare atop a pile of crispy skin-on frites and finished with drizzles of chimichurri and a tamarind-heavy housemade steak sauce that’s reminiscent of A-1 on steroids, the sliced steak is nearly fork tender, juices soaking the fries below and creating a savory pool of gravy on the plate. The portion that looks modest at first glance is anything but. Polenta fries (pictured left) and steak frites (pictured right) from Zeppa Bistro.

The new reliable Zeppa Bistro 315 Gregory St. Tuesday-Thursday 5-10 p.m., Friday-Saturday 5-11 p.m. 563-6241, zeppabistro.com [ REVIEW ] BY JAMES LEACH
“Reliable.” In a hyperbolic age when anything short of hosanas and accolades is the equivalent of damnation, reliable has become a dirty word. It’s not. Reliable, along with other disfavored words like “steady,” “dependable,” and “workmanlike,” are strong, noble words, describing people who work hard, deliver what they say they will deliver, and do it consistently day after day. Reliable is one of the best words I can think of to describe a restaurant, or the chef who’s running the kitchen. And it’s exactly the word I would use to describe Zeppa Bistro on Gregory Street and its executive chef and coowner, Seth Lindahl. Open for a little more than half a year, Zeppa Bistro has become a reliable choice in the South Wedge. A restaurant that’s as good for a Wednesday night bowl of pasta as it is for a special occasion or a weekend splurge, it has already attracted a faithful following of
regulars. And as word of chef Lindahl’s $30 prix fixe menu offered on Thursday evenings gets out, the ranks of regulars are sure to grow, every portion of creamy pork rillettes or plate of pan-seared scallops with pineapple salsa winning over new converts. Offering what Lindahl describes as California cuisine with French and Italian influences, Zeppa’s menu reads like a catalog of American fine-dining classics from the past 20 years. There’s steak frites and caprese salad, iceberg wedges and seafood fra diavolo, and that reliable (there’s that word again) standby the roasted beet salad with spicy nuts and goat cheese. There are few surprises on Zeppa’s menu, but there’s nothing wrong with that because everything Lindahl sends out the kitchen door is technically perfect — cooking that is a credit to his culinaryschool training. Order two of the same entrée and both of them will come out looking identical, every element carefully cooked, plated, and presented just-so. It’s an admirable accomplishment, and one that not many restaurants can manage consistently. What sets Zeppa apart from most other restaurants offering contemporary American cuisine is that Lindahl doesn’t take shortcuts, ever. He makes every item on the menu (including the feather-light buttery dinner
rolls that start your meal) from scratch, using fresh, local and sustainably farmed ingredients from suppliers like John Bolton, Full Moon Farms, the Lively Run Goat Dairy, and the Good Food Collective. I have no idea what that does to Lindahl’s food costs, but it surely means that he treats every leaf of lettuce and every patty-pan squash, every tiny baby carrot and round of goat cheese like it’s made out of pure gold (or at least silver), lavishing such attention on them that such humble items as the vegetable side that comes with your entrée become show-stoppingly good. Start with a plate of polenta fries atop a
ragout of sauteed mushrooms finished with taleggio and anointed with truffle oil ($8). You’ve seen this dish before, but Lindahl’s touch with the mushrooms coaxes every bit of flavor out of the tiny, brown criminis, and renders the shiitakes meaty while enhancing their natural bacony aroma. The dish almost doesn’t need the drizzle of truffle oil to perk up the ‘shrooms, but you will be glad that it is there. The polenta, as well done as it is, seems almost like a crispy afterthought, an edible alternative to the knife for pushing mushrooms onto your fork. The pork rillettes, part of a prix fixe menu that I enjoyed on a previous visit, also came
then the sheer size of the citrus-herbcrusted Atlantic cod ($17) will surely give you bragging rights with your dining companions. In essence, this is not much more than an updated version of cod broiled with bread crumbs and lemon, but the secret is in how you broil it and what’s in those crumbs. Lemon and orange zest, a bit of thyme, maybe some oregano or basil, and some garlic are layered atop a snowy white thick fillet of cod cooked until the flesh comes apart in leaves like a thick book. As good as the fish was, the seasonal vegetable medley full of roasted corn, squash, sugar-snap peas, and cauliflower (garnished with a single, gorgeously caramelized baby carrot) and finished with truffle butter stopped conversation at my table dead, prompting my companion to close her eyes and savor each bite. Normally I don’t save room for dessert, but when our server told me that there were fresh doughnuts on the menu, I changed my policy. Lindahl offers two different kinds of doughnuts — a chocolate fry-cake that he tops with homemade vanilla icecream and a yeast doughnut enriched with cinnamon, glazed, and served atop fresh peach compote. Of the two, the cinnamon doughnut was my favorite. It was served hot from the fryer, still cooking the peaches on which it was resting. But the midnight-black chocolate option, raked through a nearly yellow puddle of ice cream, was no slouch either, a perfectly reliable ending to an entirely wonderful meal. rochestercitynewspaper.com

It can be hard to make songs fun, enjoyable, and catchy, all while weaving in a lyrical narrative. But for New Jersey’s The Front Bottoms, it comes as natural as the group’s blend of acoustic rock-pop stylings. Lyrically, The Bottoms put forth real, relatable stories, and while the sound and presentation at times seems simple, there’s an undeniable nature for the songs to take you with them, just begging you to sing along. It’s great summer music — it took a long time before the group’s most recent album was taken out of my CD player. This band is teetering on a breakthrough, and if it isn’t everywhere in a few years, it won’t be for lack of talent or effort. — BY WILLIE CLARK [ Pop/Rock ]

Loverboy performed Wednesday, August 15, at CMAC. photo by FRANK DE BLASE
Sign of the apocalypse [ review ] by frank de blase
I can honestly say that I’m not a Loverboy fan. I know all of the band’s songs, though, thanks to the mind-numbing rotation it got on the radio back in the 1980’s. By the time the band hit the bigs, I had discovered punk rock by way of new wave, and was too cool for the mainstream school. So imagine my surprise when the band rocked my ass Wednesday, August 15, at CMAC. Looking their age and happy as hell to be onstage, the members of Loveroby were unapologetically retro and fun. And though Mike Reno will never shoehorn his ass into those tight red leather pants again, the man still has all the crayons in his voice box. He sounded great. And then there was Pat Benatar. Dear Pat: it was great seeing you the other night, although your handlers wouldn’t let me anywhere near the stage with a camera. Look, I know you’re pushing 60, but girlfriend, I still think you’re beautiful. I noticed you’ve rearranged some songs to accommodate your voice and you’ve shaved off a few of the notes previously enjoyed only by dogs, but you still sound amazing. And your
hubby swings a mean guitar and comb — I mean, how about that snow-white pompadour? I could’ve taken some pretty pics of both of you, trust me. But thanks to your over-protective management, we’re forced to look at a pic of Loverboy instead. Sorry. Love, Frank. Thursday night at the Bug Jar I got to catch a cool set and the debut performance from Kohler. After the young band got up and running — and dialed back a little of the icepick-to-the-eardrum tone — it exhibited some tight grooves and clever riffs that swirled in the frenetic angst and fury. Tons of potential here. Hip-hop at the Dinosaur. I know, it’s a sure sign of the apocalypse, right? But I’m telling you, Sophistafunk tore it up Thursday night. I couldn’t sit still as I tore into my ribeye. Just keyboards, drums, and vocals, this band had the joint jumping. It was fangoddamn-tastic. I even witnessed my first mouth solo when the keyboardist orally emitted a bunch of clicks and snaps that was part African bushman of Namibia slang, part beatbox. It started raining frogs soon after.

THE STATE OF HIP-HOP IN ROCHESTER INTERVIEW | BY FRANK DE BLASE
CITY: What does the Rochester hip-hop scene have to offer? James Niche:
As boisterous and bombastic as hip-hop tends to be, it is still a genre preceded by public misperception, generalization, and out-and-out dismissal. As with any genre of music, the ears of those outside its fan base are often assailed by topical, shallow misrepresentations of the form. Minds get made up, hasty conclusions get drawn. Not only does this leave the listener unchallenged and unengaged, it hurts artists that possess true talent, insight, and soul. They’re left holding the bag, to apologize, and languish in the underground. Rochester is ripe with these artists; positive, innovative talents who mirror our society, raise awareness, or merely entertain with their verbal dexterity and skill. Yet as diverse as our overall music scene is, ignorance and fear make the already uphill battle for artistic recognition that much steeper. In an effort to clear up, explain, and discuss hip-hop as music, as social commentary, and as an American folk art, City
We have a high concentration of artists here: rappers, artists, promoters, beat makers. It’s been going on for a long time, but I think it’s really been going on for the past five or six years. A lot of the artists have made a name for themselves outside of town. Why the past five or six years? What happened? Niche: I think because of recording. Access to
studios got easier. Before, in the early 2000’s, you needed a good chunk of change to get in the studio, to get it pressed. Now with the internet, you’ve got home-studio musicians all over the place. When I started ACT LIVE in 2007, I said, “Wow, there’re a lot of musicians putting stuff out there and no one’s doing anything with it.” These were young kids, 20 or 21 who hadn’t been on the road, didn’t understand about music marketing. They hadn’t done internships at studios, but they had a record and they were great artists. I think there’s been a lot more creativity in the scene too, a lot of niches. Mooney Faugh: Creativity begets more creativity. Nick Cialdella: I see a lot of collaborations. Faugh: Yeah, we’re doing more stuff with bands. DJ Ease: There was the underground scene at Java’s, before everybody was recording records. Guys like Mooney, M. Coop, and Hassaan Mackey before they were making records. Faugh: We’d see guys like Hassaan with bands like Filthy Funk. That influenced us. 12 City august 22-28, 2012
Newspaper invited a number of Rochester hip-hop artists to share their views in a kind of local hip-hop summit. Among those who sat down for our roundtable interview were James Niche, founder of local music production-promotion company ACT LIVE; Subsoil rapper Mooney Faugh; Nick Cialdella, MC and hiphop promoter at Water Street Music Hall; MC Moses Rockwell; turntablist DJ Ease; beatmaker Thievin’ Stephen; and Gunpoets vocalist-rapper Jayhigh. (Rapper Hassaan Mackey was also invited, but was unable to attend.) While in no way a definitive take on hip-hop in Rochester, what follows is a frank, unapologetic conversation we hope will spawn more debate and discussion. If you have thoughts on the local hip-hop scene, post them on this article at rochestercitynewspaper.com.
always had artists, but they had to leave town — I moved out of Rochester eight, nine years ago. I think Hassaan might be the exception. He was the first one to have a record out. Discolobos pressed it on Fish and Crown. How does the hip-hop artist’s struggle compare to a rock band’s struggle? Jayhigh: It’s kind of like punk rock, DIY,
how we throw together independent shows. Coming from Ithaca, it was very interesting to see that element come into hip-hop culture here, because it’s kind of based in the rock world. And everyone has a team or a movement and the internet makes it spread like wildfire. The good and the bad? Faugh: Yes. It’s like when punk rock was at
its peak. People didn’t want to have punkrock shows. Hip-hop has been stigmatized in

see it. But it’s a tiny, tiny percentage. I’m sure if someone was killed at a karaoke bar you wouldn’t fear karaoke. But the music somehow gets viewed as a threat.
Faugh: Alcohol is more of a
a similar way. We couldn’t get hip-hop into venues in 2006. After Red got shut down and Milestones’s hip-hop night got shut down it was tough not to get grouped or generalized. Was this — is this — due to a racial or social disconnect? Faugh: For the outsiders, yes. There is
some aggression in hip-hop. There is some connection, but no causation. It’s not like they never did a violent act before and then did it at a hip-hop show. There is an aggressive, violent aspect to some hip-hop and some violent people may come out to
threat than the music. Cialdella: I said the same thing after the Bug Jar shooting. [Editor’s note: This is in reference to the death of Deavoughn D. HernandezRuffin, who was shot to death outside of the club after a fight broke out during a hip-hop show at the Monroe Avenue venue on June 18.] Other venues are following suit, they’re scared. Niche: Of course there’s violence in music. There’s violence in all kinds of art. Not even 24 hours after the shooting, the paper was just pounding hip-hop, hip-hop, hip-hop. Talk about key words. Then you had the police chief over and over with “rap battles” and “battle rap.” Faugh: As if they got in a fight over the music. Niche: This was an isolated incident that was sensationalized. How do you distance yourselves from this? Faugh: The music should do it. But how does the music’s message reach those who don’t hear the music in the first place? Niche: We gathered everyone at the Liberty
Pole the Sunday following [the shooting incident] and demonstrated to the press that we don’t stand for this. We made up banners with the victim and his daughter on it. We made sure that everyone down there was sending a positive message. We weren’t there to protest anything or to blame anybody. We were there to show we were moving on and doing something positive with our abilities as a group. Does mainstream hip-hop help or hurt people’s perception of underground hip-hop? Ease: Yeah, it hurts. I’m a DJ that plays
both — I’ll play a hip-hop party in Vegas and then the most underground party in Rochester. And I got called out, “Oh DJ Ease, he’s a commercial DJ.” So I got called out to a battle. I came out on top skill-wise, but it was a circus. So it hurts your credibility with your peers as well? Faugh: Some hip-hop artists look down on
Subsoil because we have a band — like it’s a gimmick.
Once upon a time having a DJ in a band was considered a gimmick Faugh: Yeah, now it’s opposite. Is hip-hop commenting on culture, or is it creating culture? Niche: I think initially hip-hop commented
on the culture. You had MCs getting on the mic, commenting on the culture, feeding off what was going on. Now, I think you’ve got a music that’s pushing a certain culture. You’ve got people in offices that are very smart, they know exactly what message they’re sending. They know exactly what they’re doing with this music and they’re promoting consumerism, misogyny, all these ideas that are common in hip-hop, and therefore in youth culture today. It seems like a vicious cycle. How do you break out of it? Faugh: The artists that don’t want to be a
part of that message, like ourselves, we’re trying to craft it the other way, to push the culture the other way. We’re saying this is what the culture is about — expression and unity — and here’s where they want to take it, and we don’t want to let them take it there. We get to decide and say what hiphop is now. Jayhigh: I think, as I’ve gotten older, I’m starting to realize the key is to have camaraderie between the artists. So people see that hip-hop can be a catalyst for stopping violence in Rochester. Violence in Rochester has been so pervasive for so long that the hip-hop community can take it on and actually get some press. We’re unified, and it’s like, we’re artists from a culture that creates violence from lyrics or from our lifestyle — or the idea of the lifestyle — but we can also stop it. That’s possible.
Thus becoming a positive influence on the culture, the fans, and emerging artists. Breaking the commercial mold. Cialdella: This is an
opportunity where we can really curb those trends. Ease: I’ll play in a night lub and people want to hear “Call Me Maybe,” and I just can’t. Not only is it a terrible song, but this music is rammed down their throat every day. Thievin’ Stephen: There’s no other explanation for so many artists in Rochester sounding like they’re from Atlanta. Ease: Yeah, if it weren’t for local radio playing nothing but that. Faugh: There are other outlets. Such as? Ease: Artists have to realize you can be true
to yourself and still make it with things like YouTube. Is what you do entertainment or social commentary? Faugh: Both. Satire is fun, but it’s good
to be impressive. If it’s interesting and a social commentary I go with it, but if it’s tongue-in-cheek, a drug reference, or sex, I’ll use that too. Do you feel any responsibility as to your content? Faugh: No, people should know how to
use art. If you like parts of it and use it for your life, if you don’t like parts of it, you dismiss it. That’s your job. I have to package it in some way that’s palatable or I’d just be rambling and people wouldn’t give a shit. Cialdella: I used to try to write to entertain and I’d get extreme writer’s block. So it’s got to be something that’s playing in my life.
But hip-hop arose from the black experience. Stephen: So did rock and jazz. Why doesn’t there seem to be any local female MCs? Where are the ladies? Faugh: That’s a good question. It’s
probably because of all the misogynistic bullshit. It’s a man’s world. But there is a new wave coming up. Ease: They’re not respected. They’ve got to deal with the producer hitting on them. We definitely need females. Jayhigh: It seems with the female MCs, they always seem to be forced to have some male bravado.
to think that, but the control is with the fans, the people. Our duty is to reflect the world so that the people will love that and participate. Faugh: Or it’s pointless. People complain when I post events on FB and I tell them, “But this is an event in the real world.” Moses Rockwell: The success of the scene has a lot to do with how we relate to each other — the artists specifically. Sometime the MCs don’t support each other because there’re so many of us. Everybody wants to be the “it” thing. And if you don’t have a competitive spirit you get distanced from it. Everyone wants to be the prom king, I just want to dance.
How can the Rochester hip-hop scene grow? Faugh: We need more venues. Niche: We live in a pretty conservative
Conservative or lazy? Niche: We just don’t have a lot of events
that are diverse. Jayhigh: They think artists have all the power. It’s pretty grandiose
Is hip-hop still a black thing? Are white artists trespassing? Faugh: To me it isn’t. It doesn’t
make any sense. Calling me a white rapper is like saying black doctor. That may be offensive to some people. I’m here to stop generalizations altogether. You can’t say hip-hop is violent even though some violent people are attracted to it. You can’t say hip-hop is art for black people even though some black people like hip-hop. rochestercitynewspaper.com City 13

POLKA/WORLDBEAT | Brave Combo
This quirky quintet has been wowing audiences in one incarnation or another for more than 30 years. Brave Combo’s music incorporates a number of different dance styles, including polka, salsa, merengue, and ska. But the list goes on and on. The group has been a staple in the Texas music scene for decade, but recognized and respected worldwide, winning Grammy Awards in 1999 and 2005 and appearing in a number of feature films and television series, most notably a 2004 episode of “The Simpsons” at creator Matt Groening’s personal request. This tenacious troupe is on a mission to expand the musical horizons of their listeners, and while the songs have a sense of humor about them, don’t be fooled. These guys are serious. This is part of the Eastman House’s 2012 Garden Vibes series. Brave Combo performs Thursday, August 23, 6-8 p.m. at the gardens of the George Eastman House, 900 East Ave. $5-$12. 271-3361, eastmanhouse.org. — BY DAVID YOCKEL, JR. OLD-TIME JAM.

POP/ROCK | Train
Hardcore / Metal | Ragefest 2012
With its new CD “California 37” in tow, Train kicked off a tour that brings the band to CMAC this week. The Grammy-winning band sports a portfolio of hits that includes the ever-popular “Hey, Soul Sister,” “Drops of Jupiter (Tell Me),” “Calling All Angels,” and, going all the way back to 1998, “Meet Virginia.” Lest you think that a competitor of Constellation Brands is sponsoring the concert, Train has started its own wine company with the names of their songs becoming the names of the wines. With Train’s singer Pat Monahan having a history of doing Robert Plant in a Led Zeppelin cover band, perhaps their next act will be to sing as they uncork “Stairway to Heaven.” With special guests Mat Kearney and Andy Grammer.
The man got you down? Then head over to Ragefest. This event, spread over two nights, includes more than 20 local hardcore and metal bands armed with three chords and a dream. Friday’s show is free and has the groups doing covers of some of their favorite tunes. Saturday’s line-up packs original material. Sirens & Sailors (pictured) is fresh off a tour and headlines the concert. That quintet is filming a video for “Mirror For My Medusa” (among other songs) on Saturday. Sirens & Sailors says you better learn the words. See the website for band listings and additional information.

The people of Harlem in “Ragtime,” currently playing at the 2012 Shaw Festival. PHOTO BY EMILY COOPER
Shaw’s syncopated season 2012 Shaw Festival Through October 28 Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, Canada $24-$110 | 800-511-7429, shawfest.com [ REVIEW ] BY MICHAEL LASSER
America’s characteristic sound is restless and just off the beat, especially in the loose, driving textures of ragtime, jazz, and the blues, shrewdly borrowed by the musical chameleons of Tin Pan Alley. The U.S.A. in the 20th century came to be syncopation’s natural habitat. This summer, though, the Shaw Festival, just over the border in Niagara-on-theLake, Ontario, has picked up on it. Although four of the five plays I recently saw there are British, and despite their being purposely out of whack in some way, differences in tone, manner, and purpose keep them from lining up with one another — a kind of serendipitous syncopation. I went to “Ragtime” (in the Festival Theatre, through October 14) without much eagerness, because I was seeing librettist Terrence McNally, composer Stephen Flaherty, and lyricist Lynn Ahrens’ 18 City august 22-28, 2012
1996 musical for the third time. But aside from “The Crime of the Century” and “Buffalo Nickel Photoplay, Inc.,” two disappointing production numbers that lacked the comic flamboyance they need, the production is absolutely smashing. It fills the stage with color and movement, yet is also true to the darker spirit of the E.L. Doctorow novel from which it comes. The score’s rambunctious rhythms punctuate three syncopated stories that exemplify the uplifting optimism of becoming American, as well as the rage of America’s racial tragedy. They interweave against a background of explosive social change as the 20th century arrives: Father and Mother, living more-or-less contentedly in New Rochelle; Tateh and his daughter, desperate Jews newly arrived from Latvia; and Coalhouse Walker, Jr. and his beloved Sarah, AfricanAmericans whose search for dignity triggers the violence that presages an age of technological wonder and horror. Such figures as J. P. Morgan, Emma Goldman, and Booker T. Washington also appear to articulate a world view that is, ironically, only a decade from extinction. Patty Jamieson’s performance as Mother is her richest and most nuanced
in 16 years at Shaw. Jay Turvey brings to Tateh a sweetness of character along with determination and drive. At the play’s emotional center, though, are the prideful, ambitious Coalhouse, majestically performed by Thom Allison, and Sarah, played tenderly by the lovely Alana Hibbert. Director Jackie Maxwell has shaped this emotionally varied, thematically diverse play masterfully. Sue LePage’s set of industrial scaffolding is expansive yet ominous, while her elegant costumes, especially for the women, exemplify the period. Alan Brodie’s lighting evokes the play’s shifting atmosphere. Githa Sowerby is virtually unknown today, yet in her time, she was George Bernard Shaw’s friend, a well-known feminist reformer, and an admired playwright. “A Man and Some Women” (in the Court House Theatre, through September 22), the third of her plays revived by the Shaw since 2004, is a powerful domestic drama in which affections wither because respectable women, denied the freedom to support themselves, are forced into dependence. In such circumstances, Sowerby argues, souls shrivel and love dies.
Richard Shannon has foregone his desire to join a scientific expedition because he accepted the burden of supporting his mother, wife, and two unmarried sisters. With the mother’s death, assumptions long dormant suddenly surface. Only Shannon knows that things will be worse rather than better, but he is prepared to meet his obligations. Complicating his life is his love for his cousin Jessica, a New Woman who is self-sufficient and thus capable of a true, loving relationship with a man. When Shannon determines to leave his wife, Jessica must choose whether to accept him or insist on her independence — for his sake as well as hers. Although the plot is familiar, conventional assumptions about responsibility and independence receive a thorough shaking. Sowerby’s keen intelligence and sharp writing take nothing for granted. The play’s characters are finely drawn, and a sense of crisis builds surely and intensely. Alisa Palmer’s direction is sharp yet patient, and the excellent cast creates a sense of inevitably interwoven with the shocks that unhinge the family. Graeme Somerville is decent, driven, and loving as Shannon. Kate Hennig plays one unmarried sister with cold resentment while Sharry Flett plays the other with rueful honesty about her uselessness. Marla McLean’s Jessica is warm but insistently honest in her perception of what is real and good. Shaw’s “Misalliance” (in the Royal George Theatre, through October 27) sets up a series of “misalliances” involving couples mismatched for romance, marriage, politics, business, adventure — everything, it seems, except sex, especially after Lina Szczepanowska arrives at the home of self-made millionaire John Tarleton and his family, courtesy of a very funny plane crash. By the end, every relationship is properly arranged, rearranged, or discarded. The play is one of the best examples of Shaw’s nonstop talk, a series of duets, trios, and quartets that work their way brilliantly through matters of head and heart. The second act is more smartly done than the first because it has a lot more drive as things come to a head. Director Eda Holmes felt a misguided need to move the play from 1910 to 1962, because both were times of great change. Although she ticks off the
similarities in a program note, a list isn’t a reason. As with synonyms, the differences are what matter. The result is instant — and useless — anachronism that clutters up an already busy play. Thom Marriott as Tarleton, the alwaysadmirable Peter Krantz as the fatherin-law-to-be of Tarleton’s daughter, and Tara Rosling as Lina lead the cast with strong comic performances. Garry Essendine is Noel Coward’s parody of himself. In “Present Laughter” (in the Festival Theatre, through October 28) Coward has spun an accelerating farce-like story around a theatrical star whose egomania is funny rather than horrid, even though he has a genius for complicating his life as well as the lives of those who care about him. The story, such as it is, involves an almost ex-wife, a loyal secretary, a worshipful (if hysterical) aspiring playwright, a friend’s wife who wants to seduce him, an unflappable valet, and a talentless ingénue. It’s the kind of frothy filigree that requires perfection from director and cast. It doesn’t get it here. Director David Schurmann has broadened and thus flattened the play’s delectable mix of farce and high wit. The one thing Essendine (played by Steven Sutcliffe) must be is suave, and it’s the one thing he isn’t. His looking in the mirror whenever the doorbell rings becomes tiresome and reveals little. Jonathan Tan’s excessive clowning as playwright Roland Maule, though very funny, makes him a buffoon whose role in Coward’s comic construction disappears. Where the excess is brilliant is in William Schmuck’s design for Essendine’s “Moderne” apartment.

Playwright Terence Rattigan’s reputation is on the rise after years of neglect. That’s good news. But “French without Tears” (in the Royal George Theatre, through September 15), the play that first brought him notice in 1936, is slight and dated. With the exception of Schmuck’s costumes for Robin Evan Willis, the production lacked charm, wit, and sexiness. It was so boring that it soon became hard even to guess what a stronger company might have made of it.

ART | Frans Wildenhain Exhibit
You don’t have to be a student enrolled in the School for American Crafts to benefit from Rochester Institute of Technology’s focus on design and crafts. A new exhibit held at two galleries within the Henrietta campus celebrates the school’s collection of a prominent Bauhaus ceramicist, and co-founder of what became the School for American Crafts, in “Frans Wildenhain 1950-75: Creative and Commercial American Ceramics at Mid-Century.” The exhibit includes roughly 150 gorgeous midcentury ceramic works by the artist, displayed through October 2 in two galleries: RIT Bevier Gallery in Booth Building, 7A, and at NTID Dyer Arts Center in the Lyndon Baines Johnson Building, 52 Lomb Memorial Dr. The Bevier Gallery is open weekdays 9 a.m.-4:30 p.m., Mondays-Thursdays 7-9 p.m., Saturdays 1-4:30 p.m., and Sundays 2-4:30 p.m. The Dyer Arts Center is open Mondays-Thursdays 9 a.m.-4:30 p.m., Fridays 9 a.m.7:30 p.m., and Saturdays 1-3:30 p.m. The exhibit is free and open to the public, but if you visit during weekdays before 5 p.m. grab a visitor parking pass from the RIT Welcome Center. Though the opening reception for the exhibit doesn’t take place until Friday, September 7, 5-7 p.m. in the Bevier Gallery, this week you can partake of a book signing event for the exhibition catalog written by the show’s organizer, Bruce Austin, with photos by A. Sue Weisler. The book signing takes place at Phillips Fine Art (248 East Ave., 232-8120) on Friday, August 24, 6:30-9 p.m. The month of September is filled with more events related to the show, including book signings, lectures, an art pottery appraisal event, and a closing reception.

LECTURE | “Dressing for Tea”
I don’t know about you, but when I need an afternoon snack, my eyes barely leave the glowing screen in front of me long enough for me to crack open a ginger beer and stick my hand in a bag of popcorn. But there was a time when it was customary to put on nicer clothing and gather in a sunny parlor or shady area outdoors to have tea and biscuits, enjoy conversation and gossip, and take a break during the afternoon. Well, maybe this ritual wasn’t normal for every level of the social strata, but doesn’t it sound nice? It’s as close to a siesta as Anglo culture ever got, I suppose. Fans of the hit Brit television series “Downton Abbey” will delight in the lecture “Dressing for Tea: 1890’s-1920’s Clothing & Customs,” offered on Friday, August 24, at Brighton Memorial Library (2300 Elmwood Ave.). The 2 p.m. event is presented by the Costume Resource Center at the Theodore Roosevelt Inaugural Site, and will include displays of antique clothing and the opportunity to try on vintage hats and learn about proper tea-time traditions. The program is free; call 784-5300 or visit brightonlibrary.org for more information. — BY REBECCA RAFFERTY Ridge Center Dr. 227-4020, bn.com. 7 p.m. Free.

Bourne again and again [ REVIEW ] by George Grella
“The Bourne Legacy” (PG-13), directed by Tony Gilroy Now playing
Following “Identity,” “Supremacy,” and “Ultimatum,” the latest picture in the highly successful Bourne franchise, “The Bourne Legacy,” follows the established formula fairly closely, but also adds a good deal to the collection and even to its genre. Unlike most of the summer spectaculars, many adapted from comic books and aimed directly at a young audience, “The Bourne Legacy” resembles something like a motion picture for a more mature group, with a
level of sophistication slightly higher than that of, say, the Spider-Man crowd. To begin with, although the movie overflows with numerous action sequences of every imaginable kind, instead of employing the familiar straight-ahead, bang-bang plotting, it proceeds elliptically, so that for much of its length the action prevents complete understanding. Appropriately, the characters themselves seem as cryptic as the plot — and in fact, a couple of them openly confess their confusion about the events they find themselves involved in and the circumstances that surround them. Most blockbusters, after all, carefully avoid dabbling in mystery or constructing puzzles. After beginning with its protagonist diving into a lake in the frozen wilderness of Alaska, the movie maneuvers rapidly and suddenly all over the globe, showing a number of apparently disconnected and generally enigmatic events. In the United States, it jumps from that location to an intelligence operation in Maryland, then to Washington, D.C., then to various places in Europe and Asia,

finally reaching its violent climax in Manila. As the locations change and more and more characters enter the plot, the events and people gradually connect in some meaningful ways. As the scenes change, a number of mysterious, violent incidents occur, which only after a considerable time come to make sense. Several people apparently linked to a secret American intelligence or counterespionage agency suddenly collapse and die in different cities all over the world; a drone aircraft — the new weapon of choice in blockbuster action flicks — fires a missile at a cabin in Alaska; a sniper assassinates a journalist in London; a scientist in a laboratory suddenly walks away from his work, pulls a pistol, and systematically murders his colleagues. The cause and significance of these strange events require explanations that, again, emerge in fragments, as if the world of the film actually existed without any continuity or meaning, but only as a series of discrete moments, brief, disordered perceptions in the mind of its protagonist. The temporal context changes along with the countless movements from place to place, so that instead of something like a back story, explanatory hints emerge from conversations and memories of various characters. The unusual emphasis on obscure action and vague references and the technique of an almost continuous montage challenge the characters as much as the audience, so that the viewer only gradually comes to understand what is happening and why.
Declaration of independents [ REVIEW ] BY DAYNA PAPALEO
Project 5 Friday, August 24-Thursday, August 30 Little Theatre, 240 East Ave.
In keeping with both the previous films in the series and the title of Robert Ludlum’s original novel, which started it all, one of the key themes in “The Bourne Legacy” involves the question of identity. Jeremy Renner plays the protagonist, who uses many names and, in flashbacks, demonstrates different personalities; in fact, along with the audience, he never really knows who he is, but finds meaning in his remarkable physical and mental resourcefulness. A stellar cast also separates the movie from others of its kind, with Edward Norton as the chief villain of the piece, the director of a powerful and vicious government agency — as usual, organizations like the CIA behave quite badly in the film — and such accomplished actors as Albert Finney and Joan Allen appearing in surprisingly short moments. Stacy Keach, David Strathairn, and Scott Glenn play larger supporting parts, all of them almost as evil as Norton. Beyond all the fascinating technique and the remarkable use of innumerable locations, the movie also employs the familiar stuff of its form. It displays an impressive mastery of contemporary technology, both as subject and method, explodes with all the necessary fireworks, features several gun battles, some really impressive stunts, and an extended climactic chase, on foot, in automobiles, and in motorcycles through the congested streets of Manila. In addition to its entertaining methods, “The Bourne Legacy” remains a blockbuster in the best sense of the term.
When the Little Theatre first opened in 1929, its mission was to show “art films that appeal to the intelligent and sophisticated,” and more than 80 years later it still strives to do just that. Yeah, there was that brief porn interlude in the 1960’s, but who hasn’t had one of those? These days, however, the harsh reality is that for every movie that plays at the Little, approximately 1 zillion just won’t. Happily, the Project 5 series enables the Little to showcase films that might otherwise fly under the radar for logistical reasons entirely unrelated to their quality. So read on for a peek at a handful of films showing as part of the latest Project 5, which will also debut hometown boy Matt Ehlers’ clever promo short “Mime Flyer,” then visit the thelittle.org for the full screening schedule. A minimalist mash-up of sleek Kubrickian future and slimy Jodorowskyish past, Canadian writerdirector Panos Cosmatos’ eye-popping
“The Color Wheel” is part of the 2012 Project 5, screening this coming week at the Little.
debut feature “Beyond the Black Rainbow” has “midnight movie” written all over it. Set in 1983, a creepy doctor (Michael Rogers) engages in a battle of wills with the mute young woman (Eva Allan) he’s allegedly helping, him observing her from a safe, walled distance in deference to her deadly power. Claustrophobic close-ups and spooky electronic music set the mood for this ambitious film — that blindingly achromatic flashback is beyond trippy — which unfolds at a willfully slow pace and possibly raises more questions than it answers. (Saturday, August 25, 9:30 p.m., and Thursday, August 30, 9:30 p.m.) Back before the phrase “independent film” became a buzzy marketing term, “The Color Wheel” is what they meant. Bold, frustrating, and often very funny, the second feature by Alex Ross Perry deploys the road-trip motif for a study of the complicated relationship between two equally directionless siblings. Perry and his co-scripter Carlen Altman play Colin and JR, who bicker their way through a mission to retrieve JR’s stuff from the home of her pompous ex. Despite the occasional flat line delivery, the characters are refreshingly and recognizably flawed, and the penultimate scene, featuring an unbroken monologue by JR, contains such subtle shifts in tone that its coda comes as a total shock. This is one of the best films of my year. (Saturday, August 25, 7 p.m., and Sunday, August 26, noon.) “Falling Uphill,” the promising first feature by Rochester native Richard J. Bosner, seems like something you’ve seen before: heartsick boy loves oblivious girl and only has a small window of time to confess his feelings. But it’s quickly apparent that this story, in which the quarter-life crisis meets the financial crisis, comes from a very personal place. Writer-director Bosner wisely sketches his unpredictable characters in shades of
gray that don’t automatically hint at a happily-ever-after. Jessiqa Pace gives the film’s standout performance, taking her manic Sara from intolerable to sympathetic on an honest path. (And we believe that Ari Kanamori’s Robert would overlook her pathological peskiness in favor of her energy.) Meanwhile, San Francisco finally looks lived-in rather than postcard-perfect. (Tuesday, August 28, 7 and 9:15 p.m.) The generically named but absorbing documentary “The Jeffrey Dahmer Files” isn’t so much about the late serial killer as it is those who were left in his notorious wake. Opting for respectful over salacious, director Chris James Thompson speaks to three key people in the case — a doctor from the medical examiner’s office, a neighbor, a cop — and chronicles their recollections of dealing with Dahmer and his crimes, weaving through the interviews unsettlingly banal reenactments of Dahmer going about his days riding the bus, swilling beer, and buying an awful lot of bleach. Shedding light into the mind of Dahmer is not the idea here; it serves as a powerful reminder that victimization never stops with the actual victims. (Saturday, August 25, 1:30 p.m., and Sunday, August 26, 7 p.m.) High-level drug dealers, help me out here: isn’t there a more efficient way to test a parcel of cocaine than by jamming a switchblade into it? That’s always how they do it in movies like the new camp classic “Miami Connection,” an unintentionally hilarious 1987 flick about criminal ninjas, bikers, and the heroic deeds of a terrible band called Dragon Sound, who all know martial arts. Everything truly ridiculous about the 80’s is on proud display, and the nearly incomprehensible plot allows for some of the worst acting you will ever witness, as well as the priceless suggestion to “write another tae kwon do song.” (Friday, August 24, 10:30 p.m.)
PHOTO COURTESY CINEMA CONSERVANCY
Thursday, Aug. 23, 8:30 p.m. After making his film debut in this action comedy, Eddie Murphy became one of the biggest box-office draws of the ’80s. He’s hilarious as a convict recruited to help catch a killer, but this is a buddy comedy in the truest sense. The casting of Nick Nolte as his gruff partner brings out the very best in Murphy.

Package Four 2 families and one three family. Seven (7) unit apartment building, 19th Ward. Package one single, one double, one triple, one four. Package five singles, one double. Package a single, three, one four. Package two doubles, one single.
In the heart of the 19th Ward, among streets of solidly built Foursquare houses, lies a two block anomaly of homes more at place on Seneca Parkway or Dorchester Road. Many of these homes on Melrose Street and Rugby Avenue were built in the late 1920s and were designed by prominent architects of the time, Gordon Bull, Carl Traver, Leander McCord, and others. The striking Tudor Revival at 222 Melrose Street is attributed to Leander McCord, a designer without whom, many of the city’s finest early 20th century residences would not have been built. Many of McCord’s signature design elements remain intact at 222 Melrose and can be seen both inside and out as a result of the last 35 years of caring ownership. An original meandering flagstone path leads you through the elaborate gardens, which ebb and flow around the entire property. Extensive leaded glass windows with wood storms, immaculate stucco, striking stonework, half timbering, and a charming two car garage all catch the eye on your way to the arched walnut front door. Entering through a leaded glass door from the intricately tiled vestibule, your eye is drawn up the grand staircase, with its large newel posts, to the arched ceiling and window at the landing. Oversized walnut molding, paired with quarter-sawn oak floors with intricate walnut inlay, permeates the entire house. At the rear of the foyer is a spacious powder room, with its original herringbone
patterned tile. The large living room to the right possesses eight windows in all, along with an arched window seat flanked by two floor-to-ceiling built-in bookcases. A walnut fireplace with tiled hearth completes the room. Through a set of leaded glass French doors the sunroom wows with more inlaid floors, a grand arched window and connection to the tastefully enclosed rear porch. The dining room is a tour-de-force of inlaid floors, walnut woodwork, arched windows, picture frame molding, and a sideboard alcove. Through the swinging door is a good sized kitchen which features some original cabinetry, a large pantry, and a striking breakfast nook. The second floor includes three bedrooms and a charming seafoam green tiled bath. The master bedroom includes his and hers closets flanking a window seat. Other original features include a linen closet, laundry shoot, and built-in armoires in the bedrooms. The attic includes ample storage, full bath, and a large well-lit bedroom beneath the topsyturvy angles of the roof. For more information contact realtor Darryl Gronsky at (585) 389-4052. Listed at $169,000, this well-maintained 2,444 square foot home, with original architectural features intact, is a rare find that won’t last long. by Christopher Brandt Christopher is a Landmark Society volunteer and a Leander McCord fanatic.
