MUSIC FEATURE | BY FRANK DE BLASE | PAGE 12 | PHOTO BY FRANK DE BLASE
The scene abides: live music in Rochester Rochester’s music scene is thriving. No, really. This isn’t merely the fingers-crossed wish of someone trying to justify his job or his very existence. When it comes to live music, this dirty little town along the mighty Genesee has got it good. On any given Saturday night there are easily a dozen bands or artists —local and national — playing on stages big, medium, and small. Of course there’s the tug of war associated with art and commerce’s shotgun matrimony, but those who play and those who book live music here believe in what they do. And they believe there’s an audience for it, too.
Clubs like the Penny Arcade in Charlotte have shut their doors. Clubs like The White Rabbit on Monroe Avenue are fighting to stay open, and live music venues in general frequently struggle to simply get by. Yet there are new kids on the block too, like the all-encompassing Lovin’ Cup in Park Point by RIT, the downtown roots-rock hot spot Abilene, and The Main Street Armory, which has amped up the size and amount of shows it brings to town in recent months.

the Constitution belonged to was, “He relinquished everything to save the Republic.” It took shared sacrifice then to form this country and make it free; it will take shared sacrifice again to keep it strong and to stay the greatest country in the world.
Politics, pledges and sacrifice
David Frantz says that politicians should keep their pledges (“Government and our Mistrust,” The Mail, August 10) — specifically that the Tea Party politicians should keep their pledge to never raise taxes. But who did they pledge this to? To one private citizen, Grover Norquist, who heads a group of millionaires and billionaires. How does this small group of people have so much power over Congress? Lots of money! Frantz is worried that if the Republicans renege on this promise, their credibility will be shot, and yet he feels the Democrats should abandon their promise to protect the safety nets that our country’s most vulnerable people depend on. That’s a cause that is much more honorable and worthwhile than tax reduction. Frantz says compromise is not what we should expect from our elected officials, that it shows untrustworthiness. And yet according to most reports, the inability to compromise was a big factor in the downgrading of the US credit rating. According to Frantz, the reason some people need government social programs is because they won’t “get off their dead asses and get a job.” Unemployment is almost 10 percent in this country, so where are these “dead asses” going to get jobs? And haven’t the Republicans told us that tax cuts create jobs? Well, after 10 years of Bush tax cuts, where ARE these jobs? The president is not asking for rich people to hand out their money on the street corners, to just give it away. He’s asking for shared sacrifice. He’s asking corporations who earn billions of dollars each year to pay their fair share in taxes. Yes, there’s a need for some cuts, but like any budget, we also need revenue coming in. After all is said and done, the wealthy will still be rich, but more important, the country will be better off. The motto of the Cincinnati, a society that many Revolutionary war officers and signers of

If David Frantz got off his “dead ass” and did some research (The Mail, August 10), he would learn that able-bodied welfare recipients are required to do 30 or 35 hours a week of work or work-related activities. Those considered disabled are required to get treatment for the disability. At times, disabled people are pressured to apply for Social Security. Frantz might also learn that “degenerative” spending “on social services and welfare” has little to do with the poor. The last time Monroe County published a comprehensible budget was 2005. I don’t think things have changed that much. The total county budget was $950 million. The social services portion was $520 million. Of this, grants to the poor totaled $88 million, about 17 percent of the social services budget and less than 10 percent of the total county budget. Two hundred million dollars went to Medicaid, and $232 million went to programs. BOB INGRAM, ROCHESTER

Saving the schools
In case you missed it, the same weekend Congress tortured us with an eleventh-hour default standoff, thousands of parents, teachers, and education leaders gathered for a call to action on educational policy. Organizers of the Save Our Schools weekend met over four days for events that included workshops, a congress, and a march of about 5000 people. We came to address not just an education crisis, but current government policy that shows a profound lack of judgment about and respect for the field of education. No one argues that public schools are fine the way they are. What’s being protested is how policies like “No Child Left Behind” and “Race to the Top” are attracting privatization monies that systematically demonize teacher unions and shut out parent and teacher voices in tackling
what should be our shared goal of improving schools. (Read about the co-location sagas playing out in New York City schools under mayoral control. Watch the newly released film “The Inconvenient Truth Behind Waiting for Superman” that is a response to the “Waiting for ‘Superman’” film that recently swept the country.) As David Cohen, a teacher from California, writes: “Would you force reforms on the military and ignore the opinions of career officers? Would you try to change practices in hospitals but ignore the input of nurses and doctors?” Taxpayers beware: educational policy must be smarter than this. “Race Over the Cliff” threatens our public schools by using high-stakes testing to aim shrinking resources toward corporate charters, whose testing results are just as variable as those of public schools. Current reforms invite educational profiteering and such simplistic actions as replacing staff with cheaper, barely trained Teach for America young people. If what we want are highly qualified teachers, we won’t get this by dismissing experienced teachers for new ones whose training consists of five-week crash courses before being placed in their first jobs. Would you want your children — especially if they had learning challenges — to serve as guinea pigs for well-meaning but highly inexperienced and unqualified teachers? These reform examples are hypocritical “solutions” to problems that deserve deeper, more sustained kinds of work than that. On that sweltering weekend in Washington, parents, teachers, and educational leaders came together to remind policy makers that quick-fix reforms are no substitute for quality change. If Americans want to get serious about improving schools, then we must recognize that there are no shortcuts. It takes time to build a quality teaching force and time to cultivate deep student learning. Let’s work together to make all schools great and available to all.

urban journal | by mary anna towler
Choosing the members of the next school board I can’t think of a more important group of local elected officials right now than the Rochester school board. Not only do their actions affect thousands of children, but you know what would help this city most? To have schools so terrific that city residents wouldn’t think of sending their children anywhere else — and people would move into the city to get their children into those schools. It’s the school board that hires a superintendent to run the schools, to marshal the resources to educate the children in this high-poverty district. Every school board I’ve covered wanted the district to succeed. Every board member has been passionate about Rochester’s children — particularly its poorest. Every few years, the board’s membership has changed. Every few years, a superintendent has left and the board has hired a new one. And the new superintendents come up with new curricula, new visions, new ways to organize schools. And yet the district continues to struggle with low test scores and low graduation rates. So here we are again, less than three weeks away from a Democratic primary for school board and other offices — the election, for most races in the city. (Given the voter registration imbalance, it’s nearly impossible for anyone but a Democrat to get elected.) This particular election comes as the school board begins yet another search for a new superintendent. What qualities do we want in the people who will choose that person? What vision? And what do we want in a new superintendent? Another Jean-Claude Brizard? Brizard with better communication skills? Brizard’s polar opposite? So many things are nagging at me right now, but let me focus on one: the question of consistency, in school board vision, in a superintendent’s vision. All school board members and all superintendents want students to do well in school, to graduate from high school, and to go on to a productive life. The lack of consistency comes in how a superintendent thinks he or she can get us there. Looking back on the past several decades, I’m struck by how many changes we’ve imposed on the district’s children and staff. All based on a superintendent’s vision. We have closed schools — sometimes because enrollment in those schools had declined, but sometimes because a superintendent — and the state — thought the change would improve education.
What do we want in a new superintendent? Another Jean-Claude Brizard? Brizard with better communication skills? Brizard’s polar opposite?” We have taken junior-senior high schools apart and turned some of them into middle schools. And then, a few years later, under a new superintendent, we have put them back together again. Right now, we’re making a third change, taking seventh and eighth grades out of some of the junior-senior highs and putting them into elementary schools. Moving children around, moving staff, closing schools, opening new schools: all of this is disruptive and expensive. It’s worth it if it improves children’s education. But so far, with few exceptions, the changes have done little. For instance: the district is closing small schools within Franklin High School and opening new ones. This is the second time the district has done this, in this very school. It didn’t help the first time. Why do we think it will the second? And by the way, we are preparing to spend $325 million on something called the Facilities Modernization Program, to renovate 12 Rochester schools. Some of that work is necessary so that elementary schools can accommodate seventh and eighth grades. Will those changes help the children? Is it worth the expense? I was a supporter of Jean-Claude Brizard, but frankly I thought some of his school reorganization plan was just nuts. Big-picture consistency, then, is one thing I’ll be thinking about as the next school board interviews people who want to be our new superintendent: We’ll have more on the superintendent search as it gets underway — and we encourage your comments. (Next week, we’ll share our thoughts about the school board candidates.)

Nora Bredes, director of the University of Rochester’s Susan B. Anthony Center for Women’s Leadership, died of complications from breast cancer. Bredes was a Suffolk County legislator before moving to Rochester. When asked about the state of women’s rights in a 2006 interview with City, Bredes said, “What’s confusing about this time in our history about women’s equality is that we’ve come so far since Susan B. Anthony.” The problem is that while the rights are there, there is still what she called the “ancient prejudices.” Bredes was 60.
Contractor registry stalls
A proposal from Democratic county legislators for a countywide homeimprovement contractor registry was sent to the county administration to study its costs. It’s a tactic Republicans often use to bury Democratic legislation. The proposal would direct the county Weights and Measures division to establish and maintain the registry, and would impose fines on contractors who do substandard jobs or are paid for work they don’t do.

How to pick a mayor
City Council President Lovely Warren has submitted new legislation to deal with future vacancies in the mayor’s office. Warren’s original legislation called for a special election in almost all cases. The new legislation calls for a special election for half the year and a primary and general election the other half, depending on when the vacancy occurs. The legislation must be approved by City Council, and will go to a public vote in November.

“The concern was keeping them in Monroe County,” says Judy Seil, COMIDA’s executive director. ITT seriously considered moving out of state, she says. ITT’s decision to stay will preserve 600 local jobs tied to the headquarters, Seil says. The company employs approximately 1,200 workers across three sites locally, and pays an average annual salary of $89,458. But the move will also mean another empty commercial building in the city. Carlos Carballada, the city’s commissioner of neighborhood
and business development, says city officials tried to keep ITT in Rochester. They worked with the company to find a new site, he says, but none of the city’s offerings fit ITT’s needs. What’s important, Carballada says, is that the company will remain local. “Even though perhaps we would prefer that we don’t have some of this movement, we want to make sure that all of us work together to maintain those businesses because they mean jobs,” he says.

Wanted: a scrappy school board
No more free parking
The Coalition for Justice in Education — an umbrella organization composed of activist groups concerned with education — has done something unusual for a Rochester school board primary. CJE has created a political platform for its education reforms, and has endorsed candidates who are most likely to lobby for those reforms, says Dan Drmacich. The chair of CJE and former principal of School Without Walls says that candidates Mary Adams, Howard Eagle, Wallace Smith, and Willa Powell share the group’s vision, and they’ve demonstrated a willingness to aggressively promote its ideas, even in the face of strong opposition. Powell is an incumbent, while Eagle, Adams, and Smith are running together on the Community Education Task Force slate. Tenacious board members are key to CJE’s mission, Drmacich says, because CJE’s brand of reform veers dramatically from the current trend. For instance, he says, the coalition is opposed to high-stakes standardized testing. “There’s no research that shows that standardized testing does anything beneficial for students,” Drmacich says. “It stresses vastly different skill requirements than those students really need to be successful. It’s a vicious circle of ignorance.”
He says that proponents of highstakes testing have led an assault on teaching that is destroying the profession. And worse, he says, it’s making learning uninteresting. CJE also opposes Dan Drmacich. PHOTO BY MATT DETURCK the “unfair and inequitable funding of urban education” and the “racial and economic segregation of students in Monroe County.” Short of a nationwide war on poverty, Drmacich says, societal ills associated with poverty, such as lead-paint poisoning, poor health and nutrition, drug use, and drug-related violence will continue to thwart student performance. School board members must be far more aggressive in lobbying county, state, and federal lawmakers, the Board of Regents, and State Education Department officials to address these issues, he says. “We need a mass desegregation of our schools,” Drmacich says. “I realize that for [former mayor] Bill Johnson, that was the kiss of death when he ran for county executive. But county officials have to step up.”
Night parking at the East End garage used to be free, but since August 1, people have had to pay $2 to use the East End garage after 5:30 p.m. The monthly parking rate has also risen from $66 to $70, and the event charge went from $2 to $5. | The 1,282-space garage is owned by the Rochester Cultural Center Commission. | “It’s the lowest priced municipal garage in the city,” says James Vazzana, chair of the commission. “We have to bring it up, because revenues are down and the cost to maintain the garage is off the boards.” | The garage is almost 30 years old, says commission member Arnie Rothschild, and needs significant work. | Certain groups, including RPO season ticket holders, have been given a year before they have to start paying the new or higher fees. And Rothschild said that meetings were held with the East End Business Association and others to keep them informed of the changes. | The East End garage at 475 East Main is prime parking for people attending events at the Eastman Theatre, Eastman School of Music, Little Theatre, and other businesses and attractions in the area.

INTERVIEW | BY CHRISTINE CARRIE FIEN
Tom Richards on Rochester’s top issues The Paetec sale to Windstream and what it means for the Midtown project downtown, the continuing fallout over the arrest of activist Emily Good while she was recording a police traffic stop, and the political gamesmanship over the massive school district renovation project are three of the biggest stories in Rochester right now. Paetec was the project that was supposed to kick the redevelopment of downtown into high gear. The state provided $55 million to tear down Midtown and prepare the site for Paetec’s world headquarters. But over time, the shrinking size of the project and Paetec CEO Arunas Chesonis’s apparent reluctance to fully commit caused some to wonder if the project would happen at all. Then came the news a few weeks ago that the telecommunications company Windstream intends to buy Paetec, leaving the downtown project in serious doubt. The video of Emily Good’s arrest went viral and attracted national media attention. It also triggered a pair of police investigations: the first is into the circumstances of Good’s arrest, and the second is an investigation into whether police retaliated by ticketing cars belonging to Good supporters at a meeting after her arrest. The events have also triggered a review of the police oversight system, led by Police Chief James Sheppard and City Council member Adam McFadden. Good is planning to sue the city. Facilities Modernization is a $1.2billion project to renovate and modernize city schools. The project has experienced numerous delays and now seems to be in the middle of a power struggle between City Hall and the school district. City officials are concerned that by doing the bonding for the project — the school district cannot borrow money on its own — the annual debt payments on the bonds will be added to the amount the city must give the school district every year. That annual payment is called Maintenance of Effort, and it is a state law. A legislative solution stalled in Albany, and now city officials say they will no longer do routine bonding for the school district until a resolution is found. That means that if a roof collapses on a school, for example, the school district must pay for the repair out of its operating budget. Mayor Tom Richards spoke recently about Paetec, the police department, and the school district project, and the following is an edited version of that interview: CITY: Have you spoken to the Windstream people? What’s your sense about them going ahead with the Midtown project? Richards: They were cordial. They said they
haven’t made any decisions about this stuff: it’s months away. What I asked from them is a City

fair chance to show that it is in their interest to come here, and they said they’d give me that. The driving force is going to be how much employment survives here. If they have a significant amount of employment, we have a shot at this. Then it becomes a matter of making sure people realize this downtown location can be competitive with any other option they have. And it can be. That’s part of why we spent all the time and effort to get to this point. We’re going to have here in a year the premier location in the city. There will be streets and infrastructure in place, and there will be an almost 2,000-car underground garage underneath it. And we will have removed the impediment to development, which was this old, cobbled-together building full of asbestos. So I’m not going to panic over this, just because there’s some heat on it right now. We’re making decisions here that are going to be with us for a long time. And if Windstream says no? The casino idea doesn’t seem to die.
I still think that we want to do things in that site that will bring people downtown, and all the studies we’ve done and all the looking we’ve done says that’s a combination of commercial activity, business activity, and residences. I’m not sure that’s the right place for a casino. I don’t know that putting a casino in the middle of downtown is necessarily what my vision of downtown is. Midtown is going to shape the nature and substance of downtown. So it’ll be one kind of downtown if we do the things I just discussed down there — or for that matter, a performing arts center. It’ll be another kind of downtown if you put a casino there. And before there are casinos other than Native-American casinos, it’s got to pass the State Legislature two years in

a row and go through a constitutional amendment. So that’s an interesting discussion, but it’s entirely theoretical at the present time. The police department is getting a lot of attention. Is there a problem with the RPD, or are people just focused on the department right now?
Has the police department all of a sudden changed its behavior and created this problem? No. What we have learned with Emily Good is how a little incident can become a big incident because of the Internet. With all due respect to this incident, even if it was wrong, it was not a major incident. It was, “OK, maybe the guy used bad judgment.” But he didn’t rough anybody up, he didn’t swear at them… It doesn’t prove that the police are racially profiling people, which now the discussion is centered around. But what about afterward, when the police ticketed Good supporters in what seems like an act of retaliation?
That’s a different story. That may indicate to me that there was a breach in discipline, if that’s true. Now I’m going to reserve judgment on that, because that’s my job. But even if it was a breach in discipline, it wasn’t the worst thing anybody ever did. It was petty and stupid, maybe, but it wasn’t something God-awful. We really have three separate issues here. One is, did this officer exercise appropriate judgment with respect to charging this woman with obstructing governmental
administration under those circumstances? Fair issue. It’s being investigated. Second issue is, did the police behave in a way that was retaliatory with respect to giving people parking tickets? That also deserves to be dealt with, and in some sense could be considered more serious. But neither one of them demonstrates that the police department is running around beating people up or doing God-awful things. The third issue that has brought into the middle of it is, does the police department racially profile people? Neither of those other two incidents proves that. But the issue of whether or not the police department is engaged in racial profiling is a fair issue, and it’s fair for people to question it. It’s an issue everywhere in this country, and it’s caused by the circumstances we find ourselves in. The bulk of the crime committed in our community is committed by young black men on young black men. I wish it wasn’t true, but it is. And so how does the police department aggressively police that issue without racially profiling people? It’s a tough issue, and I’m sorry for the police department that it’s a tough issue, but they’ve got to deal with it. I’m not letting anybody off the hook just because it’s tough. But I’m not going to get anywhere with the police department, and I don’t think the city or the community is going to get anywhere if we confuse these issues. We don’t get an honest response to it. The reason that the officers stopped that car the night of Emily Good’s arrest is because it was occupied by people known to them to be members of a gang and known to have

SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 10, 2011 • 10AM - 5PM guns. And people in that neighborhood want us to stop those people. Is that racial profiling? I don’t know. It’s profiling people who are known to be engaged in criminal activity who happen to be black. And in that neighborhood, most of the people are black who are engaged in that behavior. That’s a little bit of the problem I have with the Emily Goods of the world: they treat this thing as though it were occurring on the moon — as though we weren’t in the environment in which we’re in. We’ve had some instances in this city in which police made mistakes arresting or stopping young black men and they shouldn’t have done it. The irony is, this isn’t one of them. For some reason though, Emily Good’s arrest and the arrest of County Legislator Willie Lightfoot for DWI have really sparked with people. (Lightfoot pleaded guilty, but maintains his innocence.)
Here’s another problem we have with this: the city does have civilian review. Now people may not be satisfied with it, and we’re going to go through a process of reviewing it. It certainly takes too long. But we do have civilian review, and many communities don’t. And you don’t have to complain to the police department; you can go directly to the Center for Dispute Settlement. And it’ll take a while, but you can actually force that issue to the point where the police can be compelled to explain themselves. They chose not to do that. They say, “I don’t have any confidence in the system.” But my answer to that is, “You didn’t try.” But that’s OK. Emily Good has a right to bring a lawsuit. But that means that when we investigate this, she refuses to cooperate. So the only side of the story we got is the cops’. Second of all, lawsuits don’t reform the police department; they generate money. And they take years to resolve themselves. I can’t wait for that. If there’s something wrong in the police department, I have to deal with that now. I get many more complaints about not enough police action: “Why aren’t you chasing these guys on the corner? Why don’t you stop them?” City Hall and the school district are involved in a standoff over borrowing for the Facilities Modernization Program, and whether it adds to the amount the city is required to give the school district every year. State legislation was supposed to settle this, but that’s mired in politics. Is there a non-legislative solution?
Possibly, in the sense that it’s the State Education Department’s interpretation of the law that’s
causing the problem. So if they would be prepared to change their interpretation, then that should fix the problem. Their original interpretation would’ve added $29 million a year to the Maintenance of Effort. And I said, “That’s ridiculous. Do you mean to tell me that when [the state] passed Facilities Modernization, they intended to increase the MOE?” The State Education Department said, “No, but that’s what we think it says, so go get it fixed.” But didn’t State Assembly member Joe Morelle say he had a letter from State Ed. that supposedly settled all this?
What Morelle got them to say at least is, “Well, look, at least the part that the state reimburses, we won’t add that to the MOE.” Because remember, the state reimburses more than 80 percent of the debt service on the project. So that’s what he got fixed. But that still left us with $2.3 million a year [on top of the $119 million the city gives the school district every year through the MOE]. For 15 years, that’s almost $40 million. Honest to God, I don’t believe anybody intended this. I don’t think that when the state put the [original] Facilities Modernization bill together, it had any intention to impact the MOE. But it has turned out to be opportunistic for some people, and that’s what has created the problem. So what’s the likelihood that State Ed. will change its interpretation again? You and City Council have said the city will not do any more borrowing for the school district until this situation is resolved. That could be devastating to the school district.
The only reason we did what we did is if there isn’t any pressure on this issue, it won’t get solved. I suppose the chances are relatively low that the State Education Department will change its interpretation again. But they’ve already done it once. If they don’t, then we need to get a legislative fix. We’ll go back and make sure people get a chance to fully understand it and do the right thing. That means a solution that works. I don’t care if it comes from Santa Claus. People need to calm down here. What we need to stop doing is playing games with each other. This is no way to run a railroad. It is silly for the school district and the city to be jockeying all the time over this issue.

Barbara Dean Stewart 1942-2011 Barbara Dean Stewart was born in Rochester on 9-17-42 and died in the Brightonian Nursing Home on 8-5-11. She graduated from Fairport High School and attended Cornell University at age 17. During her High school years she attended the Eastman School of Music's preparatory program and learned to play the flute and the piano. She also learned tennis from Peter Lyman, who later was the number one player in Rochester in tennis and squash and became the head coach at the U of R. At Cornell she earned a degree in Sociology and then went to Simmons Library School. Barbara then went to work at the Cornell Law Library where she met her first husband, James Stewart. They were married in 1964 and lived on the West Coast, where James was in the navy. While stationed in Oceanside, California, Barb played flute in the San Diego Community Orchestra. There were two children of the marriage, Allison born in 1965 and Whitney born in 1967. The family moved back to Rochester in 1968. Barb became active in the promoting of the Rochester Chamber Orchestra for several years. She also took up the game of squash racquets and helped to run programs for women and children at a time when neither was overly represented in the sport. At one point she was the Rochester Women's City Champion. Barb founded the "Kazoophony", a group of musicians, mostly classically trained, who played popular and classical music on the kazoo. She had a NY agent and the group played all over the country - from Las Vegas, Spokane and Denver, to West Virginia, NYC and St. Lawrence University. Her husband, James, was the MC, who succeeded Simon Pontin, a very well known WXXI personality. The group performed at Peter Schickele's Xmas show in 1978 in NYC as the pre-show warm-up group. Barb played soprano kazoo in the Kazoophony quartet and sang several numbers - the most entertaining one was a Mozart aria (Queen of the Night) where she aimed to hit a very high note, and purposely missed on the high side - her range was very high! The group disbanded in the 1980s. Barbara was divorced in March of 1985. Barb's younger daughter, Whitney, graduated from Phillips Academy at Andover and Yale University, where she received a degree in French/Film Studies. She now works as a freelance chef and food stylist in the New York City area. Barb's older daughter, Allison, graduated from Pittsford HS and Barnard College and earned a PHD in English at NYU. Allison currently works for Standard Chartered Bank as the NY editor of Economic Research.

Scotland Yard Pub features a unique take on chicken wings with its “dragon wings” (pictured left). Right: the pub’s “dragon” pizza PHOTOS BY MIKE HANLON
There be dragons Scotland Yard Pub 187 St. Paul St. 730-5030, scotlandyardpub.com Monday-Wednesday 4 p.m.-1 a.m., Thursday-Saturday 4 p.m.-2 a.m. [ REVIEW ] BY JAMES LEACH
Do you have a favorite pub? A place you come back to every Friday night? A place that your feet just automatically lead you to at the end of a hard week? Now, have you ever toyed with the idea of actually owning your favorite watering hole? That’s exactly the opportunity that presented itself to Terry Owen, Kyle O’Brien, and Pat McMahon earlier this year. Sam Paniccia, one of the three brothers who own Scotland Yard Pub on St. Paul Street, approached regulars Owen, O’Brien, and McMahon and offered them a collective 50 percent share of the business. The three accepted, and on June 1 they became partners in the pub that had been their hangout for the past two years. One would think that new owners, or at least new partners would mean that big changes are in the works for Scotland Yard, but the only changes the partners are
intending to make are in the way the pub markets itself: they want to use social media and social networking to let more people know about the pub that they love. There’s a lot to like about Scotland Yard, particularly if you happen to work downtown. On a Friday afternoon it is one of the more convenient pubs to get to, and with its extralong bar there’s a good bet that you’ll be able to find a seat. Service at the bar is quick and efficient, and although the beer selection is currently a bit limited — it does, however, always carry at least one of the beers produced by local micro-brewery Three Heads — that’s one of the handful of things the new partners are working to address in the near future. Take a seat, grab a brew, and take a look around. The pub features a nicely located pool table, an elevated and cozy space for darts, and a scattering of comfy chairs near the front door. On a hot summer evening, the lofty ceilings keep the place cool, and the low light levels are perfect for chilling out. Snag the friendly bartender on his second pass through and order another round while you look at the menu. As with all good pubs, Scotland Yard offers an assortment of the usual fried appetizers, as well as an array
of sandwiches and salads to choose from. But what distinguishes Scotland Yard from the competition is that it also offers pizzas pulled from a wood-fired oven at the rear of the dining room. Pay close attention to the menu here, because everything that comes out of that oven is worth trying. Start with a quesadilla stuffed with fire-
roasted vegetables ($9). Peppers (hot and sweet), mushrooms, onions, and zucchini are all well-cooked, but not oozing so much juice as to ruin the crunch of the tortilla in which they are enclosed, along with a generous quantity of jack and cheddar cheeses. Served with salsa and sour cream, a basket full of grilled veg quesadilla is an undisputed bargain and a good way to take the edge off while you deliberate over the rest of your meal. Scotland Yard is also somewhat famous for its wings, and justifiably so. Sam Paniccia developed his own sauce for wings that adds both sweet soy sauce and paper-thin garlic slices to the traditional hot-sauce-and-butter recipe. The resulting “dragon wings” ($9 for 10 wings; $15 for 20) have a nice sweet and sour bite to them, along with fairly decent heat and a
your pizza to be delivered. Scotland Yard makes a darned good pizza — thin crusted with a bit of char around the edges. The crust is crunchy, and on one visit almost cracker-thin, but nonetheless stiff enough to hold a full load of toppings. It’s better than average, and the toppings might put it in an even higher echelon. You could get a “classic” pizza with Italian sausage, pepperoni, and mozzarella layered over red sauce ($11), or a “carnivore” that combines all of that with chorizo, ham, and bacon (a pretty much guaranteed winner in combination with beer and wings, $12). But there are other things worth your attention. The signature Scotland Yard pizza ($12), a combination of goat cheese, artichoke hearts, and good prosciutto on a base of roasted garlic, olive oil, and the trinity of parmesan, asiago, and mozzarella is a solid choice — an antipasto platter served on a carta de musica. And the barbecued chicken pizza ($10) adds a bit of smoky, spicy chipotle to the barbecue sauce and substitutes cheddar for smoked gouda cheese. The addition of bacon to the mix is much appreciated, because, let’s face it, everything is better with a little bit of bacon. The only thing that disappointed on two visits was the Scotland Yard burger ($9). Aside from the cute conceit of a “kilt” of crusty melted cheddar cheese, it was a pretty much ordinary burger served on a gigantic French bread roll that overwhelmed whatever beefy flavor might have been in the meat. It wasn’t bad, and the fries served alongside it — nicely done steak fries with a spicy coating — were tasty (although I’d actually ordered sweet-potato fries to appease my dining companion). But compared to the pizza and quesadilla it was a bit of a letdown in an otherwise pleasant meal. Fortunately, I still had my third pint in which to drown my sorrows.

Born in Mississippi in 1925, King eventually moved to Memphis, where he bought his first guitar for $15. Folks first caught wind of him on Sonny Boy Williamson’s radio show in 1948. He’s shown no signs of stopping, even though he’s been on his “farewell tour” since 2006. Buddy Guy also performs. — BY FRANK DE BLASE

played its very first show before ever rehearsing together. But these gentlemen of jazz have really made a name for themselves in Rochester over the past couple of years. Their instrumental compositions are chock full of energy and the band exhibits a knack for finding seriously danceable grooves within its free-flowing, improvisational platform. It brings this fast and fresh sound to the Krown on Friday, a venue that usually houses darker acts. So go check out The Meta Accord and brighten up your life. — BY DAVID YOCKEL JR.

Shooter Jennings played Party in the Park on Thursday, August 18. PHOTO BY FRANK DE BLASE
Off your seat, on your feet [ review ] by frank de blase
I’m all about the outlaw country. I believe in its message, I believe in its stubborn adherence, I believe in its bloodline. I first heard Wayne “The Train” Hancock and Hank Williams III and I felt a sense of relief; the musical tumor that is Nashvegas was benign. A lot of this has to do with bloodline. Hank III, even Justin Townes Earle have it in their genes. So does Shooter Jennings. But the question is, why don’t I connect with Jennings’s sound? Jennings headlined the final Party in the Park of the year last Thursday, August 18, to a packed crowd. There were most definitely Jennings fans peppered throughout, most jammed up against the stage full of wildeyed sing-along enthusiasm. It had all the makings of a great show. Jennings, however, came off rather flat — charming and intense, but musically flat. His chosen tempo was a valley with no peaks, no dynamics. It was rather rivet-less. I’ve seen him four times now, and in looking back he’s never really resonated with me. I want to like him, but there’s just not any edge or apparent danger. His band was tight and tonally cool, but the overall mood was frankly a bit dull. The Bop Shop’s 14 Fridays series brought the heat to get you off your

seat with an outstanding show from the all-female Cajun band C’est Bon. With Cajun and zydeco, a little can go a long way; this is not subtle music. It’s revved up both musically and rhythmically with a butt load of energy and stamina. The ladies of C’est Bon traded off vocals over the pump of the button accordion and the strident march of the bass. It was passionate, immediate, sexy, and cool. I slipped over after that to the Public Market as Audio Influx was making way for Mosaic Foundation for the Band on Bricks series. Mosaic has had significant line-up shifts since I first caught wind of the band about two years ago. Whereas a lot of reggae is represented by jam bands as one of only a number of things they do, Foundation is most pure and most righteous in its adherence to the Studio One vibe. Great music for a hot summer night. Again with the house-party music. I caught Dave Stoll, a singer/guitarist form Lockport, at a backyard party Saturday night. Stoll and his guitar conjured up Lead Belly and Sonny Boy Williamson before shifting to Dylan. The music was hotter than the mini-bonfire we surrounded. Keep your eyes peeled for this cat.

SCENE A THE
IDES story and photos By Frank De Blase
ochester’s music scene is thriving. No, really. This isn’t merely the fingers-crossed wish of someone trying to justify his job or his very existence. No, when it comes to live music, this dirty little town along the mighty Genesee has got it good. On any given Saturday night there are easily a dozen bands or artists —local and national — playing on stages big, medium, and small. You’ve got no excuse if you’re sitting at home. Of course there’s the tug of war associated with art and commerce’s shotgun matrimony, but those who play and those who book live music here believe in what they do. And they believe there’s an audience for it, too. This audience to a large extent may be oblivious to the hard work and ulcers that go into making this scene the scene that it is. Competition for the consumer’s entertainment dollar may be fierce — and getting suburban asses off the couch may be a chore — but here in Rochester there is a venue for virtually every style of music. Want to bang your head? Try Montage Music Hall. Got the blues? Head on over to the Dinosaur Bar-B-Que. Want to catch the next indie craze on the road? Go to Water Street Music Hall. Dig the underground scene? Look no further than the Bug Jar or Dub Land Underground. And there are Rochester musicians playing and representing all those styles: garage rock with bands like The Absolutes and The Ohm; reggae-soul with Audio Influx; rock ’n’ roll with The Hi-Risers; jazz with The Westview Project; reggae with Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad; instrumental dub with Roots Collider; big rock with Boneyard or Rainline or Methanol; pure pop with Walri and Sports; blues with Joe Beard or Steve Grills and the Roadmasters. The list is endless.

Sure, these clubs and artists come and go with the rotation of trends — the star-maker machine can be a meat grinder at times — but like a snake shedding its skin, this is all simply part of a healthy scene’s life cycle. According to promoter Jeff Springut, the music scene in Rochester “is better than most people think.” Springut has been on this rollercoaster for decades, operating Red Creek on Jefferson Road from 1970 to 1997, and going on to promote events like Party in the Park, the Big Rib Fest, The Park Ave Summer Arts Festival, and various other events. His ear is to the ground.
Local promoter Jeff Springut at a recent Party in the Park concert. He says that the recent $2 admission fee has not impacted attendance.
“I think people — in this town in particular — play down the assets of this town for some reason,” he says. “We don’t believe in ourselves as much as we should.” Clubs like the Penny Arcade in Charlotte have shut their doors. Clubs like The White Rabbit on Monroe Avenue are fighting to stay open, and live music venues in general frequently struggle to simply get by. Yet there are new kids on the block too, like the all-encompassing Lovin’ Cup in Park Point by RIT, the downtown roots-rock hot spot Abilene, and The Main Street Armory, which has amped up the size and amount of shows it brings to town in recent months. The cycle of death and rebirth doesn’t end there: many bands that get started have the life expectancy of a hemophiliac in a shark tank. Still, the drive to create, promote, and share music persists. The scene abides. continues on page 14

Thursday, August 25 his new establishment, East Avenue’s Temple Bar and Grille, which incidentally books live entertainment on occasion. Traveling bands that were ideal for Milestones’ medium-sized capacity had begun to dry up when O’Leary decided to bail. “And the local bands,” he says. “You can’t blame these kids. They weren’t making any money, there was no local support…they just couldn’t do it. So it turned into cover bands around town.” O’Leary is part of the group of East End merchants that books the East End Festival that happens on three Fridays in June, July, and August. Lately the festival has taken a turn back to original music as opposed to cover bands on the event’s five stages scattered about the downtown neighborhood — whether fans like it or not. “I don’t know that it’s necessarily that the climate is becoming more accepting,” O’Leary says. “We’re kind of forcing it down people’s throats.” Promoter Jeff Springut is a bit more laissez-faire with a kind of “book-it-and-theywill-come” maxim.” “People’s eyes are opening up,” he says. And Springut’s booking savvy is keeping them open. At a recent Party In The Park show, Springut paired pedal-steel madman Robert Randolph with Austin, Texas, guitarist Gary Clark, Jr., a relative unknown. By the time Clark was finished with his incendiary set, hands were in the air and jaws were on the pavement. All because Springut — and the audience — took a chance. “I think you just have to be willing to take a chance,” says Alcott from Lovin’ Cup. “And if you’re really passionate about music, especially live music, you never stop working. I’m constantly e-mailing or hitting the streets, hanging up posters, talking to everybody, ‘Hey, I’ve got a big show. Come see the show.’” The passion burns bright on both ends. Truthfully, bands would play and clubs would still book them (perhaps to a lesser extent) if there were little or no money to be made. Some have come close to proving this point. But it’s a labor of love and they’re all music fans. “That makes it fun,” says the Bug Jar’s Teresa, who admits he is really only frustrated by one thing: “Last call.”

METAL | Bullet Boys
I’ve always dug the hair-metal bands that, whether it was due to their on- or off-stage sleaze factor or true adherence to hard rock, never got sucked into the mainstream gas chamber. Formed in 1987 by ex-Ratt guitarist Marq Torien, The Bullet Boys played it loud and fast — there was more metal than hair. In its late 80’s/early 90’s prime, the band released two albums before succumbing to the revolvingdoor line-up so many bands can’t avoid. Torien remains and so does the metal.

ALT-COUNTRY | Lyle Lovett and His Large Band
Boasting a career that spans more than 30 years, has produced 13 albums, netted him four Grammys, and one marriage to Julia Roberts, Lyle Lovett often seems more well known for having a strange head of hair, or for that whirlwind marriage, than his music. Despite — or perhaps in part because of — his attention-getting persona, Lovett is touring on the success of his most recent album, 2009’s “Natural Forces,” which peaked at No. 8 on the Billboard U.S. Country chart. Influencing a large number of performers to come after him, the “Cowboy Man” brings his country twang and untamed hair to CMAC this weekend.

ALTERNATIVE | Routine Involvements
Routine Involvements hasn’t even been together for a year, but this trio has already turned its raw, basement rehearsals into a smooth, steady stream of vibrant, melodic hooks mixing many different musical styles such as shoegaze, hardcore, and punk. Also playing at this show is There I Say Is Lightning, an extremely literate, underground indie outfit that has a raw, intimidating sound, reminiscent of some early Modest Mouse. It also throws in some psychedelic guitar play once in a while, as well as hints of folk and bluegrass. Archimedes and Jenna Giuliani fill the bill.

“Curve,” by local artist Jim Mott, is part of the “In the Loop” exhibition at Rochester Contemporary. PHOTO PROVIDED
People in the periphery “State of the City: In the Loop” Through September 25 Rochester Contemporary ART center, 137 East Ave. 461-2222, rochestercontemporary.org Wed-Sun 1-5 p.m., Fri 1-10 p.m. | $1 [ REVIEW ] BY REBECCA RAFFERTY
Rochester Contemporary’s annual “State of the City” exhibit brings together artists from different backgrounds to consider upstate cities with regards to their histories, shifts, and futures. This year’s edition spotlights Rochester’s Inner Loop, the controversial, nearly 50 year old roadway that has provided a high-speed commute, but truncated many city streets, isolated many neighborhoods, and contributed to a decline in Rochester’s population. In a looping news spot from WROC entitled “Living with the Loop,” people on the street and politicians alike discuss the “moat” of a roadway, and some advocate filling in less-traveled parts of it. In this exhibition, artists and institutions from different backgrounds respond to and explore ways of experiencing the ring highway by employing landscape paintings, photo essays, interactive videos, psychogeographic projects, and mixed-media sculpture to consider and discuss Downtown Rochester’s urban highways. Although this exhibit covers many interesting aspects of the topic, some viewers were surprised to find limited discussion regarding the Loop’s direct impact on the people of the city. 20 City august 24-30, 2011
Local painter Jim Mott is known for his national Itinerant Artist Project, in which he exchanges the hospitality of strangers for paintings made during his visit, and contributed dozens of moody and nuanced paintings to this exhibit. Mott’s images are semi-impressionistic, some in particular are expertly vague, building familiar shapes into scenes of quiet beauty or into epic vistas, such as the view of downtown from the Ford Street Bridge. According to Mott’s statement, this show includes a few dozen small-panel paintings from his 2010-2011 ROC-ART project, “a local version of the IAP that has involved my living and working in other people’s homes in and around Rochester — a sort of personal ‘Inner Loop’ of my own. Those painting ‘stops’ that happened to be within a few blocks of the Inner Loop were included. The ROCART work and the new series have informed each other at many points, and I see them as intersecting strands of a greater, ongoing creative conversation with my home town.” Some of Mott’s works convey a street or lawn under cover of darkness. “Although only a few night scenes or small details made it into the show,” says Mott in his artist statement, “night is where my relationship with the Inner Loop started and maybe finishes.” The artist traversed the Loop on many research nightdrives with his wife. “We made several circuits, stopping here and there to sketch, take reference photos, and look around. We were both moved by little things, such as a solitary lost flip-flop, a discarded whiskey bottle, dandelions gone delicately to seed along a grassy border, the way the lights blinking on construction zone barriers mimicked the flash of fireflies.”
The same level of nuance was on the minds
of local experimental artists Paul Bartow and Richard Metzgar, who collaborated with artist and filmmaker Jim Downer and artist Greg Stewart to create an installation study of the Loop. During the journey to chosen collection sites along the Loop, cameras rolled to record the scenes, a drawing mechanism on wheels shifted with the motion of the automobile and made marks on a paper, and specimens from each site were gathered. The installation consists of these videos, recorded road noise and wind, the drawing mechanism and resultant drawing, and clinically displayed images of collected plants and detritus in groups that correlate to different collection sites. Yet the artists offer no conclusions regarding their cache. The team’s statement explains that the installation consisting of “environmental sampling in the form of video, specimen photographs, and non-human drawing is a glimpse into the space of the Inner Loop from the perspective of the human and non-human.” But can humancreated tools — in this case the video recorder and drawing mechanism — and collected items presented in a clinical way, all in efforts to examine a roadway that is a manifestation of the human intellect truly present information from a “nonhuman” perspective? The perspective on the Loop offered by The
Landmark Society of Western New York is one of contextualizing the roadway with regards to history and social implications, including the impact on the city layout and therefore the communities of Rochester. The information is presented as layered graphics, maps, and informational text put together by artists and
designers Eric Bridle, Lisa Feinstein, and Matté. The visual context for the construction of the Inner Loop and the effect it had on surrounding neighborhoods is presented in many layers of archival images, newspaper stories, plat maps, and relevant documents, the complexity reflecting the nature of this topic. Each of the four pieces in the Landmark Society’s installation, ‘Looking into the Loop,’ is framed by a reclaimed window from a home near the Loop. Ithaca artist Mark Edward Grimm provides a semi-surreal, live perspective of Rochester police working in and around the Inner Loop. In viewing “Police Code,” visitors are invited to mount a platform that places you amid speakers and screens that broadcast live feeds from police radio-scanners, generate programmed imagery and sounds triggered by the officers’ words caught by voice-recognition technology, and the grainy video from a surveillance camera pointed at you. Activity was low each time I visited the exhibit, but listening to the flat-toned voices of the unwitting Rochester police was dramatized by intermittently sounding chimes and alarms for the words “suspicious,” “white,” “officer,” “female,” and “injury.” The words themselves circle one another and link on a screen, and the installation is meant to provide a cacophonous crescendo when the CPU of the computer hits 95 percent of its processing power, and resets the code to start a new “performance.” There are many ways to think about this work; we might consider the hidden layer of existence of law-enforcement officers, or the divide between the watchers and those being watched, searched for, and spoken about. Dutch artist Cary Markerink visualizes the
absence of the Loop in his photographs by literally cutting it out of each of nine scenes. A huge section of each rectangle has been removed, underscoring what a presence the roadway has. “The Inner Loop as a physical and mental boundary is the starting point of my project,” says Markerink in his artist statement. “The landscapes photographed show the road as a boundary or division between the buildings on both sides, while the street images show the demography of the users,” he says. The work is meant to reveal the separation caused by the Loop between the different areas, and give a visual basis for discussions about reuse. Markerink also created an interactive element by offering postcard-sized reproductions of these images and asking viewers to replace the missing Loop with hopes, dreams, and plans for better developing the space. The adjacent wall bears postcard-sized image of the works; the prevalence of selfconscious, joking responses to the call is telling of our lack of vision for, or faith in, this place.

ART | “SIGHTS & SOUNDS”
“In the past few years I have come to discover that this city is practically busting at the seams with talent and creativity,” says young painter Caitlin Yarsky, whose first solo show, “Sights & Sounds,” (pictured) opened last week at Boulder Coffee (100 Alexander St.). “The amazing musicians I have befriended in Rochester have inspired me to paint a series of large-scale portraits based on their music.” Such musicians as Timothy Dick, The Dads, Garden Fresh, Amos Rose of Walri, and The Windsor Folk Family are portrayed as a mixed bag of tweed- and lace-wearing darkcircus and Euro-gypsy folk, revealing Yarsky’s love of rollicking adventure, myth, and mystery. The featured musicians played at the August 12 exhibition opening. Yarsky’s work will be on display through September 12, and you can view the pieces while the café is open MondayThursday 7 a.m.-11 p.m., Friday 7 a.m.-midnight, Saturday 8 a.m.-midnight, and Sunday 8 a.m.-11 p.m. You can reach the café for information at 454-7140 or visit bouldercoffeeco.com. — BY REBECCA RAFFERTY Aug 31: “Scapes II” with Joel Krenis, Gil Maker, Steve MalloyDesormeaux, Don Menges, Sheila & Pete Nelson, Lois Trieb, and George Wallace.

SPECIAL EVENT | ROC CITY TATTOO EXPO
All kinds of people get tattoos — some get a nary-shown bit of ink on a whim, others spend a long time planning, researching, and designing large-scale or interconnected ink works. Some people are after that old-school Sailor Jerry style, or epic traditional Japanese Irezumi; others want more modern or personal pieces. Whatever type you are, you’re sure to find something to your liking at Love Hate Tattoo’s third annual International Roc City Tattoo Expo, which takes place Friday, August 26-Sunday, August 28, at the Hyatt Regency (125 E. Main St.). More than 100 artists from around the world will be present during the expo, offering you the opportunity to get inked by a world-class artist without the cost of travel. There will be daily contests and raffles, and vendors of all manner of tattoo paraphernalia, including tat-style artwork for those who dig the style, but prefer their flesh canvas left blank. The event’s hours are Friday 1-11 p.m., Saturday noon-11 p.m., and Sunday noon-6 p.m. Admission is $10 per day or $25 for a three-day pass.

SPECIAL EVENT | SPOKES & INK: A BIKE AND POSTER PARTY
Cycling culture is on the rise in Rochester, with discussion of installing bike lanes, and an increase in residents putting their health and environment to the forefront during their commute by going by two wheels instead of four. On Saturday, August 27, noon-6 p.m., head down to Monroe Avenue, between Oxford and Rutgers, for the much anticipated Spokes and Ink Bike and Poster Party. The event will be held at Blessed Sacrament Church’s parking lot and the Genesee Center for the Arts and Education. Presented by the Genesee Center, City Newspaper, DogTown, and other local businesses and organizations, the event will feature a celebration of bikes, music, local food, and Rochester-brewed beer. A variety of Roc City artists have created cycling-celebrating posters, which will be sold for $20 a pop at the festival. Lock up your pony at one of the plentiful bike racks, learn more about R Community Bikes, and make your own spoke card at the Genesee Center’s tabletop letterpress.

RECREATION | ROCHESTER TRIATHLON
With the end of summer comes the end of walks along the beach, park visits, and swimming. If you’re like me, exercise leaves your daily routine as quickly as 90-degree days flee us come fall and winter. We all have one more chance to enjoy the beach, the park, and to get a great workout before August ends. The Rochester Triathlon debuts on Saturday, August 27. This event will give you a chance to exercise outdoors so you can feel less guilty about hibernating in a few months. A triathlon consists of three grueling races in one. Athletes must go from swimming to biking and then end by running to the finish line, all without much of a break. The Rochester Triathlon is hosted by the Rochester Area Triathletes and will take place in gorgeous Durand Eastman Park. It will be a sprint-distance run suitable for both new or experienced triathletes. The swimming portion will take place in Lake Ontario, the biking will be in Durand Eastman Park, and the running portion will take place in the woods of the park as well as along the shore of Lake Ontario. The race is $55, plus a $10 fee for non-USA Triathlon racers. All participants must register for the race at rochestertriathletes.com. — BY ALEXANDRA CARMICHAEL

THEATER | “COMPLETE WORKS OF WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE, ABRIDGED”
William Shakespeare’s plays are still constantly produced on stage and screen. They have been recreated by some of our favorite actors in hundreds of renditions, and we have all come across them in our high school English classes. But have you ever seen all of Shakespeare’s works performed in a single sitting? With all characters done by three actors? And some burlesque added in? This week Rochester’s Working Class Theatre will stage “The Complete Works of William Shakespeare, Abridged.” The piece is part satire, part homage, and all hilarious. Three actors will bring you all 37 plays in less than 100 minutes. Those who know the plays by heart will appreciate the misunderstood plotlines and puns, while those who struggled through the Shakespeare units in school will finally get their revenge as the plays are comically hacked apart. Performances will take place at Webster Veterans Memorial Park on North Avenue from Wednesday, August 24, to Sunday, August 28. The show will be performed for free under the stars at 8:30 p.m. each night. Be sure to bring beach chairs or blankets.

[ REVIEW ] BY George Grella
“Fright Night” (R), directed by Craig Gillespie Now playing
With his characteristic penchant for vatic pronouncements, Marshall McLuhan once wrote that every age makes of the previous age a work of art. Although the statement demands a certain amount of salt, it still explains a good deal of the nostalgia that surrounds various decades and even the tendency of the film industry to repeat the past, in the form of remakes. The 1980’s hardly qualify as a classic period, but a great many particular cinematic forms, themes, and tendencies,

especially in science fiction and horror, emerged in that decade and now and then, like hibernating groundhogs, appear to be reemerging in our time. The most recent and perhaps most faithful remake of a picture from the 1980’s, “Fright Night” updates most of the original material but also reflects some of the atmosphere of a generation ago. Combining the teen pic with the horror flick, it avoids the usual parade of decapitations, dismemberments, and disembowelments that ensanguine that familiar partnership. The picture generates its menace and terror more through its particular situation rather than through merely piling up horrors and corpses. As in the original, young Charley Brewster (Anton Yelchin) senses something sinister about the handsome new next-door neighbor, Jerry Dandridge (Colin Farrell), who appears to have charmed Charley’s mother, Jane (Toni Collette). When students in his high school start disappearing — somehow not troubling the authorities in any way — Charley’s obnoxious geek

of a friend, Ed (Christopher Mintz-Plasse), immediately thinks a vampire prowls their Las Vegas subdivision, feeding on the residents. Charley soon verifies his own suspicions about Dandridge, but faces the usual problem of trying to convince everyone else, including his mother and his girlfriend Amy (Imogen Poots) of the existence of the vampire. Dandridge plays a catand-mouse game with Charley, taunting him with the promise of seducing both his mother and his girl. Both women finally believe Charley when the vampire, unable to enter the Brewster house uninvited, simply burns it down and pursues the fleeing trio at high speed, trying to kill them all. As in the original, Charley seeks the help of a professional vampire hunter, Peter Vincent (David Tennant), a magician who performs on stage in a Las Vegas casino. Unlike the prissy, timid has-been played by Roddy McDowell in the first movie, this Peter Vincent, clad in black leather like a Gothic rocker, is an annoying, flamboyant charlatan, boasting about his sexual conquests and sucking up booze like a fiend himself. Like his predecessor, Vincent refuses to help the kid, telling him that vampires don’t exist, that the menace, like his own act, is merely an illusion. In keeping with current cinematic practices, the script withholds its terrific climactic confrontation, proceeding instead through a series of violent encounters between the monster and the young people. Though no more inventive than those of the first “Fright Night,” those

battles involve a great deal more in the way of actual physical damage, accompanied by quantities of blood — one character, transformed into a vampire, fights his intended victims despite losing an arm and suffering an axe blow to his neck that simply ruins the position of his head. Though he lacks the suave manner of Chris Sarandon’s Jerry Dandrige, Colin Farrell, buffed like a bodybuilder, sinister, creepy, with a sneering condescension, makes a most acceptable vampire. Tubby, flabby and extraordinarily irritating, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, whoever he is, cannot hold a candle or a cross to Stephen Geoffreys, the first Evil Ed. Gratifyingly, “Fright Night” continues some of the great traditions of the vampire film, employing the age-old devices of garlic, the cross, holy water, and the old reliable, the stake through the heart. In a nice touch, in the opening scenes Charley helps his mother, a real estate agent, load her car with the equipment of her trade, including signs on wooden stakes, and we all know that one of those stakes will come in handy before the movie ends, and by Dracula, it does. Despite the modernization, “Fright Night” retains at least one retrogressive connection to its predecessor, a teenage protagonist who would rather spy on his neighbor than have sex with his beautiful (and willing) girlfriend, which amounts to a total denial of adolescent hormonal reality and perhaps an allusion to the Reagan-era advice, “Just say no.”
For as long as they’ve been making movies, they’ve been making movies that consider whether sentient life exists elsewhere in the universe. Just who or what might be out there remains one of humankind’s last great mysteries, inspiring more than a century’s worth of filmmakers to explore all theoretical angles, from friendly green spacemen to bony, bloodthirsty aliens, some of whom look like ET and some of whom resemble us. And some of whom might actually be us; that’s the underlying premise of Mike Cahill’s imperfect yet interesting Sundance hit “Another Earth,” a thought-provoking entry into the science-fiction genre that plays frustratingly fast and loose with the science part of the equation in service to a gorgeously rendered fiction about that elusive second chance. When we first meet Rhoda (Brit Marling), the willowy 17-year-old with an enviable tumble of blonde hair is partying on the cusp of what looks to be a bright future. Rhoda is slated to study

astrophysics at MIT, so it’s not surprising that she might be preoccupied with the sudden appearance of a previously undiscovered planet on her drive home, one that ends in tragedy as the drunken, distracted teen plows into the car of John Burroughs (William Mapother, “In the Bedroom”), killing his pregnant wife and young son. Flash-forward four years: Rhoda is being released from prison, and some Branson-esque impresario is sponsoring a contest to travel to the new planet, its composition close enough to ours to earn it the name Earth 2. “Another Earth” watches as the introverted Rhoda attempts to piece her life together, both with an anonymous maintenance job at the local high school (Wes Anderson fans will recognize Kumar Pallana as Purdeep, this film’s clichéd Wise Minority) and an eloquent contest entry detailing why she, as a convicted felon, might be the perfect choice for a journey to the modern-day frontier. Rhoda also sets out to apologize to Burroughs but can’t find the words in the presence of the dazed, brooding widower and begins working for him as a house cleaner. Now, assuming this isn’t your first moving picture, you can of course foresee the trajectory that the relationship between these two lonely, bruised souls will take, even as you hold your breath for Rhoda’s inevitable confession. Hovering ominously, promisingly in the background is Earth 2, which appears to be a carbon copy of Earth, right down to its doppelgänger population. (Putting this scene in the trailer totally undermined the spine-chillingness of the revelation.) Earth 2 offers our characters an opportunity to ponder the existential questions, like what one might say upon meeting oneself or how to handle a chance for the ultimate do-over. Unfortunately, also hovering in the background are
the shaky physics of it all, which do not exactly hold up under scrutiny. Why did it take so long for someone to notice this massive planet in our orbit? And how is it able to get so near without actually crashing into us? A third-act twist in the space-time continuum is beyond convenient, though by that time you’re either on board or you’re not. But seriously: you go to Earth 2 and meet Earth 2 You; won’t that f**k everything up? Cahill and co-writer Marling don’t address this, and there’s no enforceable law that says they have to. Earth 2 is yet another in a storied line of MacGuffins, its presence propelling the unfolding conflict between Rhoda and Burroughs. The spare, contemplative script wisely explains away his failure to recognize her, and as their bond gradually develops, we become quite emotionally invested in a construct that seemed farfetched at the outset of “Another Earth.” For that we can thank Marling and Mapother, who bring to their performances a delicacy and humanness that transcends any nagging unbelievability. Due most likely to her gender, beauty, and relative youth, Marling has been getting the lion’s share of attention for her contributions on both sides of the camera, but I’m truthfully more impressed with Cahill, who handles cinematography and editing duties here as well. While the handheld camerawork can get a bit show-offy at times, “Another Earth” is unnecessarily lovely, the colors alternating between otherworldly steelblues and the autumnal desaturation of coastal Connecticut. Cahill shot on low-resolution digital (no doubt helping to keep the budget to a mere, shocking $200,000), and the raw, poetic feel of the images only works to amplify the ache as everyone wonders what’s next.

Rare Brick Beauty Near Park Ave.
35 Vick Park A
Built in 1875 during the Victorian era, the Italianate style house at 35 Vick Park A stands out among the wood-framed houses built on the former property of the Vick Seed Company during this time period. With its stately red brick exterior, it more closely resembles the larger houses lining East Avenue. Over the long course of its existence, this home has had several cosmetic updates inside and out; however, its previous owners have kept the sophisticated façade intact. The parade of original features in this home begins as soon as you walk through the front door. The entryway boasts original penny tile floor and pristine crown molding. Once inside, gleaming oak hardwood floors lead into the spacious living room. The front facing bay window lights up this unique space and all of the living room windows, in true Victorian fashion, stretch all the way down to the floor. This well-designed space is perfect for entertaining but can also function well as a sanctuary for a quiet night at home. The dining room boasts plenty of space for a large set of formal dining furniture. A door that originally led outside has been converted into a large window, giving the room light exposure from another angle. Another notable update is the recently remodeled kitchen. Matching cherry floors and cabinets, Corian countertops with ceramic tile backsplash, new crown molding
and modern appliances provide a welcome taste of modernity amidst the classic style of the home. The kitchen also offers ample space for a breakfast table or butchers block. Directly off of the spacious eating area, a powder room has also been added. There is plenty of space for a growing family on the second floor, including four potential bedrooms, a serene sitting area at the top of the steps, and a full bath. Another rare and wonderful find in this home is a second floor, cedar-walled laundry room. All of the rooms in this home boast immaculate hardwood floors. The rear bedroom, which is currently set up as the master suite, stands out with recently installed wide-plank pine floors. The backyard is beautifully landscaped, matching the traditional look and feel of the rest of the home. A professionally designed gazebo extends off the kitchen, offering a great place to sip coffee or tea before heading out to the varied delights of the Park, East, and University Avenues corridor. 35 Vick Park A has approximately 2,210 square feet of living space and is listed at $299,990. For more information visit http:// rochestercityliving.com/property/R155794 or contact Norma Fennell at 585-943-2701. by Peter Smith Peter lives and works in Rochester and is a Landmark Society volunteer.
