Where have all the cowboys gone? Earlier this month country superstar Kenny Chesney played CMAC in Canandaigua, drawing nearly 15,000 people. It’s not hard to see why. Chesney’s music is feverishly catchy and he puts on a dynamite show. It was not just a testimony to the man’s talent and appeal, but the entire genre itself: country music is huge. Yet the appeal seems to drop off sharply when it comes to country music on a local level. Where are the bands? Where are the country-music fans
the other days of the year that megastars like Chesney aren’t here? There are certainly local country artists, and fans, but it is disproportionate to the genre’s national popularity when compared to the amount of local concerts in practically every other genre out there. We reached out to country scenesters in Rochester and asked them to take a stab at an answer. For the most part, they were just as baffled. Where have all the cowboys gone?

Newspaper operatives stated that I “know about a lot about education and the city school district.” Indeed I know as much about the RCSD, if not more, than any candidate in the race, including incumbents, and especially those whom City endorsed. They continue their charge that I am “vitriolic.” What that means (translated) is that I am not a mush-mouthed, tongue-incheekish, go-along-to-get along, bump-on-a-log type person. Instead, I have what I believe is a very good habit of cutting through the rhetoric and noise, and consistently calling a spade a spade, which I would absolutely continue to do as an elected official. That City operatives continue to utilize the term “vitriolic” (just as they did during the election two years ago) to describe my articulation style means that they are playing to a particular group of their readers, which of course does not generally include those children and families within the RCSD who are suffering the most, and catching the most hell. As it relates to being so-called “hurtful”: I have never said or done anything to any person that comes close to being as hurtful as the things that many adult educators do and say to RCSD students on a daily basis. Interestingly enough, City’s operatives have never written about the latter phenomenon, which reinforces their obvious belief that hurtfulness is more acceptable for some than others. City operatives do not have a monopoly on describing or assigning what is or is not “unconstructive delivery [of] messages.” Because “it [is] difficult [for them] to see [via their supernarrow, status-quo-supporting-
perspectives] how [I] could contribute to the board’s work” does not mean that I can’t do so. In fact, I can, and plan to do so. HOWARD EAGLE
I attended the board meeting in which many teachers, primarily music, spoke strongly about music being threatened, largely by last-minute cutting back of key components of music programs and instruction (“Music Teachers Fight for Time,” News). Some had not been notified of where their classes would be held and of the elimination of programs that focus on student presentations. The only suggested option for the teachers to continue these programs would be to do them either after school or during lunch. My reaction was that not only were such decisions by the district wrongheaded but insulting as well. Nothing was said by school board members then or now. BONNIE CANNAN
Lessons from the test scores
You are right that no one is discussing the “hard things,” but I have to challenge you (“The Test Score Rage: Rhetoric Vs. Reform,” Urban Journal). Why have you not gotten a small group of experts together in one room and hammered out productive and doable solutions? If your paper promoted (weekly) the ideas of this group, maybe, just maybe, the Grinch would return the gifts to Whoville. The media have a big role to play, and it is disappointing that you are all letting these decision-makers off the hook. JOHN BLISS
Contrary to Mary Anna Towler’s comment that in response to the latest low test-score fiasco, nothing new has been presented by the community on the “hard things” that need to be done, the Coalition for Justice in Education has made several research-based, “hard proposals” to the Board of Education, which despite some board support, have not moved forward. And, why not, given the lack of improvement based upon corporate and standardized testbased reforms over the last 15 years? Consider the following CJE proposals:
• Given the link between low student academic engagement and the concentration of poverty, lobby the county, state, and federal governments for redistribution of tax funding to lower poor, urban school studentteacher ratios to 12:1. • Given the concentration-ofpoverty link to student engagement, lobby with county, state, and federal governments for suburban district incentives to create metropolitan school districts, at which no school would have more than 40 percent of its students from poverty backgrounds. • Replicate schools based on the New York State Performance Standards Consortium model, of which Rochester’s School Without Walls is a member. This Regentsapproved alternative model requires small school populations, a student-centered curriculum with standards that exceed the Regents and Common Core, performancebased assessment vs. high-stakes standardized tests, strong teacher training for inquiry-based teaching, and democratic decision-making. • Focus on personalized vs. standardized standards, thereby following the research tenets that honor individualized learning styles, student interest, and needs, as well as the professional judgment of teachers. Students would also no longer be compared to each other or to other school populations. These changes would not be easy to achieve, but would revolutionize the system, since corporate and political interests would no longer be driving education policy and practices. Perhaps a first step for moving in this direction would be to vote for those BOE candidates in the September primary who would support these efforts, rather than “more-of-the-same.” Who are they? DAN DRMACICH
Drmacich, the former principal of School Without Walls, is chair of the Coalition for Justice in Education.
Mary Anna Towler’s response: I didn’t mean to imply that no one has good ideas about how to successfully address urban education problems. But as you note, the ideas have gotten no broad community support and little leadership. We know what needs to be done. The community and its leaders aren’t willing to do it.

Slim progress on racism since King’s big march Well, here we are, 50 years after the March on Washington, with commemorative gatherings, speeches, workshops, and media interviews with people who participated in that demonstration on the Mall that hot August day. We have made progress since then, certainly, just as the nation had made progress in the 100 years before the March. It’s no small thing that the president causing all that excitement on Rochester’s Park Avenue last week was a black man Americans have elected not once but twice. But the progress has been far, far too small and too slow. We can get a lump in our throat listening to recordings of King’s speech, and feel all fuzzy and warm looking at the photos from Saturday’s commemorative gathering in Washington. But what we ought to feel is shame. Racism thrives today just as it did when King spoke about it 50 years ago. We’ve simply tucked it under the rug, finding ways to pretend there’s no racism behind the assault on voting rights and affirmative action, that racism has had nothing to do with the concentration of poverty in our inner-city neighborhoods, the racial segregation of our schools, and the stopand-frisk actions of police departments. Fifty years ago, hundreds of thousands of people went to Washington to march for Jobs and Freedom. Today the black unemployment rate is almost double that of whites, a ratio that has hardly budged since 1963. The black poverty rate is almost double that of whites’. Both statistics are much, much worse in cities. And you know about the graduation rate and test scores of the Rochester school district, whose student population is heavily black and Latino. It has become too easy for white Americans to distance ourselves from that data. We can decry the statistics and at the same time assure ourselves that we have had no role in their creation – and bear no responsibility for addressing them. The absence of a Bull Connors unleashing police dogs on black demonstrators lets us exaggerate the progress we’ve made and ignore the racism permeating the nation’s fabric – hidden, often, but still there. I’ve heard too many stories from black friends and news sources to think that racism hasn’t continued to thrive. They have endured humiliations that white Americans have not had to. They worry about experiences their children will have that white parents don’t give a second thought to. Unlike white parents, they feel compelled to teach their sons about how

to behave when they’re stopped by police officers – as they are sure they will be. In the weeks following the George Zimmerman verdict, I asked several of those friends and news sources if they would share their experiences. Here are excerpts from their e-mailed replies. From Rochester City Council member Dana Miller, relating an experience at a local
country club: “I was attending a wedding reception and was walking up the front steps. I was dressed in a suit and tie, and my wife was with me. As I approached the door, an older white man walked over to me and attempted to hand me his car keys. “Although I considered for a moment that he was making a generous gift to me, I realized that he was expecting me to park his car for him. Since he did not appear disabled or in need of assistance, I politely refused and walked inside. He did not offer his keys to any of the other arriving guests who happened to be white, so I can only assume that he did not expect any person of color to be a guest rather than a valet.” Ben Douglas, former Rochester City Council and school board member, told of his experiences years ago as a young research engineer in Pittsburg, where he was stopped and questioned by police repeatedly, in both black and white neighborhoods. Those incidents included two police officers stopping as Douglas was cleaning continues on page 7 rochestercitynewspaper.com
[ NEWS FROM THE WEEK PAST ]
Obamamania in Rochester
After a day or so of speculation and preemptive sour grapes, Rochester did, in fact, get a quick visit from President Barack Obama. The media and the public learned about the POTUS pop in at the last minute — the moment the presidential motorcade pulled off I-490. Shortly after, people began tweeting that the motorcade was at Magnolia’s Deli and Cafe on Park Avenue for lunch.
D and C layoffs
The Democrat and Chronicle laid off six full-time workers and one part timer. Among those laid off was a political reporter, Jessica Alaimo. “I can only say that all of us are, once again, deeply saddened to see colleagues leave under these circumstances,” Steve Orr, the president of the D and C’s Newspaper Guild union chapter, said in an e-mail.
New York gets credit upgrade
Moody’s Investors Service upgraded the state’s credit rating outlook, increasing it from “stable” to “positive,” according to a press release from Governor
Andrew Cuomo’s office. Moody’s also affirmed the Aa2 rating on New York’s $3.5 billion in bonds. A government’s credit rating can influence its borrowing costs.
Kodak’s next chapter
Kodak, which launched amateur photography through the introduction of the Brownie box camera, emerged from bankruptcy with its image battered and no products to sell. The new company will have far fewer employees, and will still provide Hollywood with its film, but it will be a commercial company selling digital printing services.
From the ‘must be nice’ files
It was revealed that Lt. Gov. Bob Duffy has purchased Sandy Parker’s house on Keuka Lake. The sale caused a stir because Parker, who is head of the Rochester Business Alliance, sits on the Finger Lakes Regional Economic Council, which Duffy chairs. Parker, though technically not a lobbyist, can strongly advocate for how state economic funds are distributed. Duffy purchased the house, which was built in 2009, for $527,000.

EDUCATION | BY TIM LOUIS MACALUSO
Classroom chaos Nearly a dozen ministers from the Baptist Ministers’ Alliance and the Rochester Ministers’ at Large, organizations that represent about 40 African-American churches in the Rochester area, joined together last week to decry student behavior in the city school district. The press conference began as an indictment of the district, but quickly turned into a condemnation of student attitudes about education. The ministers said that student behavior in many city schools is out of control, addressing a topic that is seldom discussed with candor: the responsibility that parents and

children have in students’ education and college readiness. Bishop Jerry McCullough said that he doesn’t blame teachers for the school district’s low performance. Rather, McCullough and several other ministers said that student behavior problems force teachers to struggle daily with classroom management and discipline issues. “The teachers are not here to raise your kids,” McCullough said. “Educating your kids begins at home.” The ministers sounded off on familiar themes: the media’s glamorization of the gangster lifestyle, teen pregnancies, and single mothers raising multiple children.
And they proposed several approaches to help correct the problem and to support teachers, including expanding afterschool reading and study programs and organizing a group of ministers to visit schools weekly to work with students and to mentor troubled youth. The ministers also talked about the need for more black male teachers in classrooms, which is something the district has worked on for years. But school officials say that hiring black male teachers is difficult, since the majority who graduate with math and science degrees pursue higher-paying work in the private sector.

“I think that willy-nilly stops and searches engender lots of really bad relations between police and others. But I think you’ve got to be careful not to read into this the idea that police can’t use that tool at all. They have to do it constitutionally, which they’ve always had to do.” JOHN KLOFAS

Stop and frisk, and Rochester Hailed by civil libertarians and denounced as cataclysm by dismayed public officials, the recent court ruling that the stop-andfrisk tactics used by the New York Police Department violated minorities’ constitutional rights will have wide-ranging implications for police everywhere, including in Rochester, says a local criminal justice expert. “I think it probably is a good thing,” says John Klofas, a criminal justice professor at Rochester Institute of Technology. “I think that willy-nilly stops and searches engender lots of really bad relations between police and others. And I think that’s important to address. But I think you’ve got to be careful not to read into this the idea that police can’t use that tool at all. They have to do it constitutionally, which they’ve always had to do.” Earlier this month, a federal judge found that the NYPD “resorted to a policy of indirect racial profiling as it increased the number of stops in minority communities,” wrote Joseph Goldstein of the New York Times. The judge did not call for an end to stop and frisk, though, and an appeal is expected. Rochester has implemented police crackdowns such as Zero Tolerance and Operation Cool Down during crime spikes. A big part of the initiatives involves beefing
Earth bond up police presence in high-crime areas. Evidence shows that concentrating police in troubled areas does reduce crime, Klofas says, including gang activity. But Klofas John Klofas. says that Rochester FILE PHOTO has never been as extreme in its policing as New York City. For example, the federal case included evidence that quotas drove unnecessary stops, Klofas says. “As far as I know, that’s never been the case in Rochester,” he says. RPD Deputy Chief Mike Ciminelli says that police are working with the city’s law department to study the federal court’s ruling. “We want to try to understand what the judge was saying and see if there are lessons to be learned for us,” Ciminelli says. “In terms of any actual impact from an enforcement perspective, I think that’s way premature.” He says that the RPD and the law department are focused on issues the case raised around policy, practice, training, and documentation.
In 1996, New York voters gave the state government permission to borrow $1.75 billion to finance a multitude of environmental and infrastructure projects. The money funded open space preservation efforts, seeded a revolving loan fund for water infrastructure projects, and funded water and air pollution reduction efforts. Money was also set aside for important brownfield cleanup projects, including one in Rochester’s Newcroft Park neighborhood. | Now, two State Legislature committee chairs are proposing a new environmental bond act, this time for $5 million. Republican Senator Mark Grisanti says that the borrowing is necessary to meet waste water and drinking water infrastructure repair and improvement needs. A 2008 assessment estimates statewide waste water infrastructure investment needs at $36.2 billion over 20 years and drinking water system needs at $38.7 billion over 20 years. | The money would also fund additional brownfield cleanup programs, which would benefit Rochester and other upstate cities with industrial pasts. | If the bill gets through the Legislature, it’ll go to voters in November 2014. But Governor Andrew Cuomo and all state legislators will be up for election at that time, and they may be reluctant to put a large spending measure on the ballot.

Republicans fight for Henrietta’s top job In Monroe County’s suburbs, Henrietta is sometimes invoked as a pejorative or a cautionary tale of dominance by shopping plazas and big box commercial development. “We don’t want to be Henrietta,” residents tell their elected officials. Yet those same people shop in Henrietta’s stores and eat in its restaurants. Henrietta is misunderstood. It’s not all strip malls and megastores; commercial property makes up 12.4 percent of the town’s land, according to 2012 figures compiled by Monroe County. Henrietta is about one-third residential and has significant agricultural and vacant land. It’s also home to quite a few industrial operations and RIT’s 1,300-acre campus. In practical terms, Henrietta is a complex experiment in community balance. And the town’s next supervisor will lead the government responsible for maintaining that balance. Sitting Supervisor Michael Yudelson is seeking re-election, but is being challenged in a September 10 primary election by fellow Republican Jack Moore, who’s been a Town Board member for six years. If Yudelson wins, he’ll be uncontested in the November general election. If Moore wins, however, he’ll face Yudelson again in November because Yudelson has the Conservative and Independence lines, too. Yudelson has been supervisor since 2008 and before that served on the Town Board. In his campaign materials, Yudelson stresses the town’s flat tax rate during his time as supervisor. He also says that services have been maintained, and that the town has continued to attract businesses and
development. He did not respond to several interview requests. The town tax rate, which is $1.21 per $1,000 of assessed value, is a point of pride among town officials. Town Board member Bill Mulligan says that the commercial and industrial businesses in the town contribute approximately half of the town’s tax revenue, which has allowed the rate to remain steady. But while the tax rate is low, Moore says, the town has also built up an $18 million reserve. Henrietta officials should give some of that money back to residents, he says, through a temporary tax decrease or some other action. “We’re a little overboard,” Moore says. “Is it against the law? No. Is it great to have savings? Absolutely. But we’re keeping people’s money that we don’t need to keep.” Moore owns and operates Gro-Moore Farms on East Henrietta Road and says he wants to bring his practical business experience to the supervisor’s job. He also says that Yudelson hasn’t been a strong leader. During his first supervisor campaign, Yudelson said he wanted Henrietta to develop a town center concept for the area around the Wegmans on Calkins Road. Moore says

that Yudelson hasn’t taken steps to advance the idea. Moore says that when he negotiated a deal for the town to buy the Dome Arena property for $2.2 million, which could have advanced the town center concept, Yudelson didn’t act on it. Henrietta has tried to rein in off-campus properties rented to RIT students. The town passed an ordinance that restricts the number of unrelated people who can live in a residence, and it’s defending the law in court. Moore says that he wants the town to establish a rental property registry, similar

Black oak down in Washington Grove Sometime within the next few weeks, the City of Rochester will cut down the oldest and largest black oak in Washington Grove, a stand of old-growth trees adjacent to Cobbs Hill Park. The tree is one of the largest black oaks in the country, and is estimated to be between 150 to 200 years old. Cutting down a tree such as this can alarm the public. But in this case, the action is necessary, says Peter Debes, a naturalist and member of Friends of Washington Grove. The tree’s long history is catching up with it. It’s no longer healthy, Debes says, and it poses a danger to neighbors and park visitors. 6 CITY
AUGUST 28 - SEPTEMBER 3, 2013
The tree is rotting at its core, he says, which is a problem since the tree leans into Nunda Boulevard. “It’s virtually hollowed out,” city spokesperson Gary Walker says. The city tries to avoid cutting down trees within the grove, Walker says. But in this case, if the tree fell it’d probably take out power lines, he says, and may damage neighboring property. The city hasn’t scheduled a date to remove the tree. The tree owes its current state to a pair of lightning strikes dating back at least 15 years, Debes says. The tree healed from the strikes, he says, but insect and fungal
infestations set in, which weakened the tree. The city’s forester has promised Friends of Washington Grove a slice of the tree trunk, Debes says, which will reveal how old the tree is. And the group plans to match historical information to some of the growth rings, creating a display similar to the tree section shown at the entrance to the Lamberton Conservatory in Highland Park. The city plans to cut down this old-growth oak tree in Washington Grove. The tree, which has been struck by lightning twice, poses a danger because its core is rotted. PHOTO BY JEREMY MOULE
to registries implemented in Rochester, Brockport, and Chili. Landlords would have to pay a fee to register their properties, Moore says, and the properties would have to be inspected yearly. It’s an idea that he and fellow board member Mulligan have pushed for a few years. The registry would help town officials ensure that rental properties are kept up, Moore says, and that they don’t have safety or code violations.

out his car, asking to see his registration and driver’s license and, when he produced them, asking him to pull out his keys and lock and unlock the car. Finally satisfied, said Douglas, “they said they had a report of a car theft in progress from an elderly lady who was looking out of her window.” On another day, Douglas was walking from his Pittsburg apartment to a nearby convenience store when a police car racing by with its lights flashing pulled over, and police officers got out and questioned him. “It was same routine about identification, where did I live, etc.,” Douglas said. The officers had been responding to a report of a robbery in progress at the convenience store, and Douglas, they said, fit the description of the robber. When Douglas got to the store, the police had the robber in custody. “The reason this incident stands out so vividly,” said Douglas, “is that I was wearing a three-quarter length, goldenbrown cloth coat and an Afro. The man they arrested was wearing a short black leather coat, was about two to three inches taller than me, had shoulder length hair, and was white.” And locally: about eight years ago, as Douglas, now living in Rochester, was nearing a house in Brighton to drop off his daughter for a friend’s sleepover, an officer in a police car signaled him to pull over and pulled up behind him. After the commotion drew the daughter’s friend and family to the front door, and Douglas’s daughter got out of the car and went into the house, the officer finally walked to Douglas’s car, said the car inspection had expired, and told him to get it fixed. “I was amazed he could spot this three car lengths behind me at night in the dark,” Douglas said. And two years ago, police stopped his then-teenage son, who was riding Douglas’s wife’s bike home from a visit with a friend in West Irondequoit: “They thought he had stolen the bike and didn’t believe he lived where he said. They noticed the combination bike lock and demanded that he open it. My son didn’t know the combination but had the presence of mind to call my wife on his cell phone. My wife gave him the combination and spoke with the officers to verify his description.” “Fortunately,” said Douglas, “I had that ‘conversation’ with my son some time before that incident, and he remained calm and polite. I imagine, when the time comes, my son will have that ‘conversation’ with his son.”

and attending college in the South and living and working in the North: witnessing a KKK march in Atlanta and being cautioned by his father not to stare; encountering segregated Greek organizations and Confederate-themed social affairs and blackface caricatures at the recently integrated southern university he attended. “As a junior high student in Augusta, Georgia, an elderly white man challenged my sitting in the front of the bus,” Norman said. “I ignored his challenge; he got off the bus.” “I was patently aware of residential segregation and differentials in the quality of life in communities that I have lived in: Augusta, Georgia; Macon, Georgia; Kalamazoo, Michigan, and Pontiac, Michigan. I have the same experience in Rochester. “Twice, I have been called the N-word to my face. Once, the slur was totally unprovoked in any way; I was just walking down the street in Kalamazoo in 1971. In 2009, when I was driving in Atlanta, I was repeatedly called the N-word in a tirade by an elderly white man who thought that I cut him off at a complicated traffic intersection. “In Rochester, I regularly observe the presence of racism as reflected by all-white or nearly all-white boards of directors. Occasionally, I encounter racist jokes. It’s not always about blacks or Latinos; it may be about an ethnic group. I generally use such situations as a teachable moment, which doesn’t tend to endear me to the social group.” I also got stories from 23-year-old Adrian Elim, who, as an undergraduate at the
University of Rochester, frequently crossed the pedestrian bridge from the 19th Ward to the university. “Each time I walked across and passed a white person,” Elim wrote, “they got incredibly uneasy and continues on page 8 rochestercitynewspaper.com

more often than not became best friends with the side railing furthest from me. It didn’t matter how I dressed, whether I be in a suit, skinny jeans, shorts, or sweatpants (no hoodie): the reaction I got was the same.” Among those encounters: walking behind an elderly white man, who after looking back at Elim repeatedly, stopped, knelt down, and held his hands on the release to the leash, ready to unleash the dog if necessary. And at the university, said Elim, “it was a task and a half to try and get adequate information from white student workers at the University. I would generally have to spend the first two minutes of the conversation trying to convince them that I was a student.” Elim is now with the Greater Rochester Health Foundation, but as a student he worked at Wegmans, and he was frequently asked by customers if he was in college. When he said yes, the response was almost invariably, “Oh, at MCC?” “MCC is one of the top community colleges in the country and is a fine institution,” Elim wrote, “but having that be the only ‘plausible’ college a young black man could attend is 12 steps past insulting.” “Walking down the street pretty much anywhere gets me various looks of concern and uncertainty,” Elim wrote. “If there is a white couple walking together, the woman almost always grabs her purse, and her male counterpart usually makes some sort of physical contact with her (be it grabbing her hand or putting his arm around her shoulder).” Fifty years ago, 30 years ago, eight years ago, today: this is not subtle racism, and it still exists. In his speech at the Lincoln Memorial, King talked – as he did on other occasions – about the “fierce urgency of now,” the “tranquilizing drug of gradualism.” And, noting that 100 years had passed since Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation, King said that 100 years later, “the life of the Negro is still sadly crippled by the manacles of segregation and the chains of discrimination.” There is every bit the urgency now that there was when King spoke in Washington. But plenty of people are still wedded to gradualism in dealing with racism and its effects – and worse, cling to denial and pretense. It’s hard to be optimistic about where we’ll be 50 years from today.

Feast your eyes [ CHOW HOUND ] BY DAYNA PAPALEO
The Tip Jar here at Chow Hound HQ is currently overflowing with news, and it’s my job to serve it up to you in carefully measured portions so you can efficiently digest all this data. First, though, let’s grab a bite in Swillburg... • “That’s Zemeta,” owner Natanael Beshah said, proudly motioning toward his cheerful wife as she bustled around her namesake Zemeta Ethiopian Restaurant (1015 S. Clinton Ave., 244-3344), a warm, welcoming space located in the former India House Vegetarian Café. Like other Ethiopian eateries, Zemeta offers diners the options to order a la carte or sample different dishes through a variety of combination platters. There are several meat-based combos featuring beef, chicken, and lamb, but at $8.95, the vegetarian version is a steal, consisting of an array of exquisitely seasoned lentils, greens, and other vegetables, all artfully arranged atop the traditional teff flatbread known as injera, which diners use to scoop up the food. (Besides being totally nutritious, teff flour is gluten-free.) Zemeta also serves a popular vegetarian buffet on Fridays and Saturdays,
and coffee lovers might like taking the highoctane Ethio coffee ($2.25) out for a spin. • On a Dishcrawl, you and your new best friends explore a particular neighborhood via its vittles. Past events have gone down on Park Avenue and in the South Wedge, and the next Dishcrawl, scheduled for Tuesday, September 17, and Wednesday, September 18, 6:30-9 p.m., will take participants on an eating tour that stops at four East End restaurants. Tickets are $45; visit dishcrawl.com/rochester to learn more, and follow Dishcrawl on Twitter (@ dishcrawlroc) for hints about the destinations. • Apple Country Spirits, Wayne County’s first distillery since Prohibition, has recently debuted its Tree Vodka, distilled from apples (but not apple-flavored) grown on Williamson’s DeFisher Fruit Farms. Other spirits are in the works; call 315-589-8733 for more information, or visit applecountryspirits.com. • Congratulations to Heather Saffer, whose “Dollop Book of Frosting” recently hit bookstore shelves. Winner of Food Network’s “Cupcake Wars,” Saffer closed her Penfield bakery space Dollop at the end of last year to concentrate on ventures like her new book, which goes beyond the typical cake-and-icing partnerships to include savory ideas like beer-
boiled pretzels with cheddar-bacon frosting. Learn more at heathersaffer.com. • Good Luck, currently in the throes of celebrating “Five Years of Luck,” is again partnering with Greentopia | Film for Short Courses II, taking place Tuesday, September 10, at 7 p.m., and consisting of four courses of food paired with the four short documentaries that inspired them. (Also: wine.) Tickets are $100 and going fast; visit greentopiafest.com/film for details. • “Seeds of Change” is the title of Unity Health’s series on cooking with beans, legumes, and soy, a low-fat, plant-based approach designed to help manage diseases such as diabetes, high cholesterol, and hypertension, as well as promote weight loss. It’s $120 for the four-session class, which begins Wednesday, September 11, 6-8 p.m. at Unity Diabetes & Endocrinology Services, 2655 Ridgeway Ave., Suite 220. Visit unityhealth.org to register, or call 368-4560. • Well, the bad news is that The Wafel Cart is winding down, its final appearances scheduled for the Rochester Public Market on Saturdays in September, as well as the August and September Food Truck Rodeos. The good news? Owner Nick Musson is planning to
open a waffle shop “unlike anything you’ve experienced before.” Stay up to speed at thewafelcart.com. • The Seedfolk Store recently celebrated its grand opening at 540 W. Main St., staffed by volunteers and selling fresh produce as well as other locally made items. Operating with the support of Prosper Rochester, The Seedfolk Store also provides entrepreneurship training to neighborhood kids, along with opportunities to flex their own green thumbs. Call 224-5119 for more info, or visit The Seedfolk Store’s Facebook page. • Enjoy England, Ireland, France, and Belgium without the jet lag? Of course not; don’t be silly. But you can drink some good beer with a PassPOURt, which entitles the bearer to suds, swag, and more through visits to the Old Toad, Murphy’s Law, Fraîche Bistro, and Victoire on Saturday, September 14, 2-5 p.m. Tickets are $20; call 255-0103 or visit victoirebar.com to learn more. • Sunday, September 8, brings with it the debut of the Penfield Farmers’ Market, located at Grossman’s Garden & Home, 1801 Fairport Nine Mile Point Road. Open Sundays year-round 9 a.m.-1 p.m., the Penfield Farmers’ Market will offer locally grown fruits and vegetables, along with meat, eggs, dairy, baked goods, and other handcrafted items.

City,” and for good reason. But, when radio announcer David Cobb coined the affectionate sobriquet, I don’t think he had any idea that a band like Diarrhea Planet would one day make its home there. In spite of (or maybe because of ) its name, this six-piece has been getting a lot of critical attention lately. The group employs four guitarists, one thundering bass, and a drum set that gets the you-know-what beat out of it. The band’s sophomore studio release “I’m Rich Beyond Your Wildest Dreams” is a beautiful exercise in excessive sludge, a bit of pop, and incessant shredding. — BY DAVID YOCKEL, JR.

Kelly Clarkson shares the bill.

[ REVIEW ] BY FRANK DE BLASE
C.J. Chenier certainly laissez les bon temps rouler at Abilene Wednesday, August 21. The joint was one big percolatin’ dance floor as Chenier and his able crew rocked up the zydeco. The show went well past most bedtimes, and into those hours known as wee. I don’t believe I’ve seen Houston, Texas, blues rocker Chris Duarte perform since the Milestones days — the first Milestones, that is, back in the 1900’s — and I remember him as more of a blueser than the progressive bruiser I saw play at Abilene Sunday night. The show, a stop on his “My Soul Alone Tour 2013,” was initially slated for the patio. But given the fear that Duarte’s Stratocaster would stratocast and bust clouds, causing it to rain, management horsed the whole affair indoors. Duarte rocked the crowd as if it was one big bag of Shake ’n’ Bake (“And we helped”). Working within the flexible confines of his three-piece band, Duarte took songs based on a riff — often a blue one — and explored and enjoyed and extrapolated it, frequently giving a toggle-
switch tour along with all his stomp boxes and their myriad purr, growls, and screams. Duarte doesn’t shy away from the mic either, and I imagine he needs to give his fingers a reprieve. So songs like “I Bucked It Up” were sing-along crowd pleasers for the mostly male, cargo-shorts-wearing crowd, which also needed a break, what with all the air-guitaring, fist-pumping, and head-banging going on. A blend of Stevie Ray and Jimi, Duarte proved song after song (including his expert stab at “Manic Depression”) why he is up there and out there on the upper deck when it comes to the classic American guitar hero. Earlier the same day I was gnawing on a lamb shank at the Greek Festival on South Avenue as two cats on stage played some beautiful bouzouki. Mixed in the traditional flutters and trills of the Greek selections were some surf flutter and trills. As they played Dick Dale’s “Misirlou” I found myself wondering if all the things Dale captured in his sound included not only lava, but baklava?

WHERE HAVE ALL
THE COWBOYS GONE?
FEATURE AND PHOTOS BY | FRANK DE BLASE
Country music rules the radio waves. But where are the local country artists? Recently I queued up in a sea of cowboy hats piling into CMAC to see country superstar Kenny Chesney. It was a mob scene; a huge crowd of almost 15,000 people. And it’s not hard to see why. Chesney’s music is feverishly catchy and he puts on a dynamite show. His songs relate to Middle America, both country fans and casual country tourists. It was not just a testimony to the man’s talent and appeal, but the entire genre itself: country music is huge. Yet the appeal seems to drop off sharply when it comes to country music on a local level. Where are the bands? Where are the country-music fans the other days of the year that megastars like Chesney aren’t here? Is it a lack of demand? That seems improbable, give the ratings pulled in by country-music radio stations. To be sure, it’s not a lack of talent. There are certainly local country artists and fans of the music, but it is extremely disproportionate to the genre’s national popularity when compared to the amount of local concerts featuring rock, blues, jazz, folk, and practically every other genre out there. 12 CITY AUGUST 28 - SEPTEMBER 3, 2013
When pressed to explain this genre imbalance, we reached out to country scenesters in Rochester and asked them to take a stab at an answer. For the most part, they were just as baffled. Where have all the cowboys gone? Just as country music is hugely popular in mainstream music (one third of the Top 100 singles on iTunes the final week of August were country hits), country station WBEE 92.5 FM is routinely at the top of the ratings here in the Greater Rochester airwaves. The Entercom-owned, High Fallsbased station is especially popular with the coveted 21- to 55-year-old demographic. “Country music is bigger than it’s been in a long time,” says WBEE Assistant Program Director and Music Director Billy Kidd. WBEE, along with Big Dog Country 103.5 in Sodus and WCJW in Warsaw, blanket the area with country music, playing music by artists like Keith Urban and Lady Antebellum. Kidd isn’t surprised by the appeal. “A lot of it is very real music, talking about very real things,” he says. “Not being a rock star and driving eight Ferraris. It’s
about driving your pick-up truck with your girl and going out for a drink on Saturday night. There are a lot of love songs, a lot of story songs, a lot of party songs. There’s something for everybody.” Yet Kidd still sees a deficit of local bands playing country live. “There are a handful of bands you see over and over again,” he says. “But I don’t think there are a lot of venues for them. There aren’t a lot of country outlets for them.” It could also be argued that country music has a broader appeal in the country itself — in the surrounding, more rural areas. Brian Chase, the host of “Upstate Onstage,” a local country-music show airing Sundays 9-10 p.m. on WBEE, sees it as a geographic phenomenon. “There definitely is a geographical aspect to it,” says Chase. “Artists here come from outlying areas. Most of the guys in [regional country band] Flint Creek come from Canandaigua, Hopewell, Geneva.” And Chase points out that many country stars don’t come from big cities, but rural smaller towns. Like Kenny Chesney, who hails from Powell, Tennessee. So looking for budding
country stars in urban clubs might be futile to begin with. Of course, if you’re trying to find country music locally, you have to factor in the eternal debate of defining what country music is anymore. Country’s current mainstream success could be credited to its adherence to pop formulas, both musically and in its business model. Or did the pop stance come as a result of mainstream success? Is country music today merely a coopted pop hybrid? It appears that where rock music has always got one reverential eye in the rearview mirror, contemporary country is more of just that: contemporary. “The trend is for the newer music, the last 10 years,” Chase says, regarding the seeming disconnect of today’s country sound from its twangier roots. “It has definitely gone the way of pop culture thanks to artists like Shania Twain and Garth Brooks.” “I think the biggest factor is age,” says Kidd. “If you’re a 30-year-old and you didn’t grow up listening to Johnny Cash, you’re probably going to be more in tune

to what’s going on today as far as country music goes.” As a result, according to Chase, “A lot of bands don’t want to be pigeonholed into country music.” That doesn’t bother Tim Clark, front man and singer of local band Dang. Dang plays country, but not the kind you’re likely to hear on WBEE. He describes it as “classic” country, “older, eight-track style, trucker country of the 60’s and 70’s.” Clark is equally baffled by the overall deficit of live, local country music, but doesn’t view the Rochester area as a complete country wasteland, either.
be to move toward stuff like Kenny Chesney, Lady Antebellum, and stuff like that — I could probably triple what I make. But I wanted to hit something that wasn’t being served.” Clark’s theory on the relative absence of local country music doesn’t point a finger at fans for the lack of overwhelming regional demand, but rather at the slingers and singers. “You’ve got to start with the musicians,” he says. “They have to be interested in country first and foremost. If there’s such an appetite for country music, why aren’t there more people doing it? There are not enough musicians in town interested in doing it.”
“There are a handful of bands you see over and over again. But there aren’t a lot of country outlets for them.” “Bands like Flint Creek and Closing Time have nice big audiences,” Clark says. “I suppose if I were smart, I’d pay close attention to their playlists. I made the turn to country during the swing revolution of the late 90’s. I wanted to respond to swing by providing Texas swing and met a bunch of players out in Orleans County. The smart move would
For club owners like Danny Deutsch, who
runs Abilene Bar & Lounge on Liberty Pole Way in the heart of downtown Rochester, it goes back to the very definition of the genre. And according to Deutsch, the music fan, the music has been shanghai’d by pop music much in the same way r&b has been. Deutsch doesn’t cotton to the new “glitzy, poppy” take on country, he says, while
agreeing that it does have its place. “It’s the new pop music. It fills the sheds, it fills the arenas. No doubt about it,” he says. Though a relatively small joint, Abilene consistently fills up to the walls with more traditional touring country artists like Wayne Hancock and Hayes Carll. Deutsch mourns the limited amount of original country artists in this town and rattles off a few names like Mike Snow, Grand Canyon Rescue Episode, and the late Dave Donnelly. “He was the last great country singer locally,” says Deutsch. “He was as real and authentic and country as country can be.” Deutsch considers where and when and why he would ever book pop-county with a dismissive guffaw. “If it was just about money,” he says. “Maybe if I had a wife and three kids at home and needed to pay more bills than I do, I would. Then I could have karaoke on Tuesdays and shot girls on Wednesdays.” So there is country music in the Greater Rochester area. It just depends on which definition you adhere to, or if you think there are enough venues and artists catering to it. But the question remains: if it’s so goddamned huge in this area — and it is — then why aren’t we teeming with bands? Why aren’t there clubs packed with honky-tonkers and boot scooters? There’s no easy answer. Dang’s Clark agrees. “It’s more than e-mail lists,” he says. “I can tell you that.”

INDIE | BARBAROSSA
Operation Barbarossa was the code name for the German invasion of the Soviet Union during World War II. While I don’t think that this particular Rochester-based quartet has a penchant for the Third Reich, the name is fitting: the group’s sound is powerfully intrusive in the best possible way. Its moments of ambient expanse and cinematic postrock are balanced by a sharp, yet almost indiscernible edge. Imagine a rose garden surrounded by a barbed-wire fence — as gorgeous as it is menacing. Barbarossa performs with White Woods, We’ve All Drowned Once, Strawberry Girls, and Stolas Sunday, September 1, 5-9 p.m. at Dub Land Underground, 315 Alexander St. $10. facebook.com/dublandunderground. — BY DAVID YOCKEL, JR.

BLUES | BLACK BANDIT & THE STICKUPS
Local musician Black Bandit & The Stickups is unlike anyone else you will hear in the Rochester area. Heavily influenced by the masters of the blues, his music and stage personality embody a classic, soulful charm that feels totally authentic. Bandit is also influenced by punk bands such as Minor Threat and Mischief Brew, which adds an extra quirk to his brand of the blues. Bandit has the ability to entirely lose himself in his music, and to take his audience along with him; he gives off a kind of raw, unpredictable energy that draws listeners in. In the words of the artist himself, “Black Bandit is here to shake your soul and steal your heart; the Stickups just ain’t got nothing better to do.” Black Bandit & The Stickups perform with Cammy Enaharo, Josh Netsky, and Teressa Wilcox Thursday, August 29, 9:30 p.m. at Abilene Bar and Lounge, 153 Liberty Pole Way. $5$8.

R&B | WALE
Mixing some jamming beats with some pretty lyrically intense rhymes, Wale is certainly more than his mix tapes. Wale’s most recent release, “Ambition,” debuted at No. 1 on iTunes, and the Billboard hip-hop and pop charts, which is certainly nothing to sniff at in this day and age. Also appearing will be Pusha T, taking a break as half the acclaimed duo Clipse while he works on his mix tapes and shows us all how he gets down.

All in the family “Family Secrets” THROUGH SEPTEMBER 28 DOWNSTAIRS CABARET THEATRE, 3450 WINTON PLACE $26-$33, 325-4370 | DOWNSTAIRSCABARET.ORG [ REVIEW ] BY ADAM LUBITOW
In the one-woman show “Family Secrets,” currently on stage at the Downstairs Cabaret at Winton Place, actress Carolyn Michel portrays five different members of one conventionally unconventional family as they struggle to relate to one another and find happiness within their own lives. Originally performed by actress Sherry Glaser and co-written by Glaser with her then husband, Gregory Howells, the play opened in 1993 and had a long, award-winning run Off Broadway (according to Glaser’s website, it holds the distinction for being the longest-running one-woman show in Off Broadway history). Evidently the intervening years have not been kind to the material, and any edge the subject matter may have once had has been dulled over time. The story is based loosely on Glaser’s own family. Their fictionalized counterparts are the Fishers, a Jewish family originally from Brooklyn, but now residing in Southern California. We’re introduced to the family members one by one as they each deliver a monologue laying out their life’s struggles. There’s Mort, the patriarch of the family; a no-nonsense accountant struggling to accept his eldest daughter’s bisexuality and unorthodox lifestyle. His deceptively cheery wife, Bev, was diagnosed with bipolar disorder after suffering a nervous breakdown as a result of the pent-up anger she felt toward her own (now deceased) mother. Their oldest daughter, Fern, or Kahari as she now prefers to be known, is a new-age spiritualist suffering through the consequences of her decision to have a natural childbirth. Mort and Bev’s youngest daughter, Sandra, is a petulant teenager (and burgeoning bulimic) experimenting for the first time with sex and drugs (this is a comedy, I swear). Finally, there’s Mort’s mother, Rose, who has found a new love late in life with a man named Milton. 18 CITY AUGUST 28 - SEPTEMBER 3, 2013
In an interesting bit of staging
carried over from the original production, Michel performs her costume and makeup transformations in front of the audience, making it easy to see the alterations she makes in her performance to inhabit each individual family member. Sometimes this works to her benefit, and other times significantly less so. Michel is clearly a capable performer, and she acquits herself well with the older characters. But frankly, she doesn’t make an entirely convincing 16-year-old. Too often, the Fishers feel like costumes; identities to try on, but not three-dimensional enough to avoid coming across Carolyn Michel in “Family Secrets,” now on stage at as caricatures. It doesn’t help Downstairs Cabaret Theatre in Winton Place. PHOTO COURTESY DOWNSTAIRS CABARET THEATER that the writing lays on the Jewish schtick rather heavily. The program includes a the result is that the speeches don’t feel glossary of helpful Yiddish phrases, and at one point Rose even leads the audience tied together in any way. Millman also makes the slightly odd decision to allow in a sing-a-long of “Hava Nagila.” “Family Secrets” to remain a period piece. The script touches on difficult topics — There’s no specific reference to a time mental illness, depression, drug abuse, and period within the text, so it’s not really rape — but doesn’t delve deeply enough noticeable until Sandra’s section, when for them to have much impact. For a show she’s introduced dancing around her called “Family Secrets,” these characters bedroom lip syncing to Journey’s “Separate sure are eager to talk, but there’s never a Ways” and dressed like she’s just escaped sense that they’re unburdening themselves from a rerun of “Kids Incorporated.” It of any particularly painful or shocking makes for a somewhat jarring transition, truths. Perhaps part of the problem is that to say the least. in the 20 years that have passed since the It’s details like these at keep the Fishers play was written, playwrights have gotten from feeling developed as realistic people; bolder and more daring with the subject like they could be your neighbors or even matter they choose to tackle in mainstream your own family. The play ends with entertainment. While Bev emerges as the Rose addressing the audience, explaining most fully realized character, now we have that when we entered the theater we shows like the musical “Next To Normal,” were strangers, but in her mind we had which covers much of the same terrain as practically become family. Unfortunately, I Bev’s monologue, including shock therapy never felt any more connected to her than and medication side effects, but with significantly more depth, nuance, and insight. I did when her entire identity was still hanging on a clothes rack. Director Howard Millman (the former
artistic director of Geva Theater, and also Michel’s husband) stages the monologues effectively, but aside from Michel occasionally addressing a line off stage, they each feel isolated from one another. Maybe that’s intentional thematically, and obviously, more than one character can’t be on stage at the same time. But

ART | C. GRAHAM CARSON/NAZARETH FACULTY SHOW
With classes back in session, college and university galleries are kicking off their new schedules of exhibition offerings. Last week, Nazareth College opened two shows: “Codex Gigas: New Paintings and Work from C. Graham Carson” at the school’s Colacino Gallery, and the Annual Faculty Show in the Arts Center Gallery, both located in the Arts Center on Nazareth’s campus (4245 East Ave.). Carson’s show includes acrylic paintings and assemblages created in his Rochester-based Myrmidon Studio. His paints are mixed with stone dust, natural earth pigments, and metal dust and shavings from his studio floor. “By adding objects or metal shavings, I’m creating paintings that are naturally more sculptural,” he says in a provided statement. “Taking it another step, when I use materials that oxidize, they create their own pigments that change the painting.” The objects attached to the paintings reflect the artist’s fascination with anthropology, archaeology, and the history of places.

FILM | SIN-O-MATIC NIGHT
City Newspaper’s own Frank De Blase will present a “Sino-Matic Night” at the Cinema Theatre (957 S. Clinton Ave.) on Tuesday, September 3, featuring a screening of Russ Meyer’s 1965 sexploitation film, “Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!” The lusty, busty, romp of a flick features three thrill-seeking go-go dancers, Billie, Rosie, and Varla, who meet a young couple in the desert. They kill the boyfriend, kidnap the girlfriend, and scheme on a crippled old letch and his sons, who are supposedly loaded. But the old man is as sinister as the girls, and he has his own plans. “Though psycho-sexually supercharged, it’s one of the tamer films — i.e. no nudity — in Meyer’s pantheon of boobs, violence, boobs, social commentary, and boobs,” per the press release. The event starts at 8 p.m., and will also feature noir short “Busted Valentine,” written by Frank De Blase and animated by David Cowles. Copies of De Blase’s new crime noir novel, “Pine Box for a Pin-Up,” will be available for signing. Poster artist Doug Mac will be present, and gorgeous gals will show you to your seat. Tickets are $10. For more information, visit cinemarochester.com, and watch for future B-Movie, film noir, crime drama, and sexploitation films presented by Frank De Blase. Proceeds will help outfit the Cinema Theatre with a new digital projector. — BY REBECCA RAFFERTY

RECREATION | SEABREEZE/ROSELAND WATER PARK
Did you hear that, Rochester? It’s the subtle whisper of the impending crush of snow and cold that will soon wipe out all memories of warmth and happiness. The last gasp of summer is upon us, so it’s time to maximize the sunshine and glorious heat while they last. Head to Seabreeze Amusement Park or Roseland Waterpark for rollercoasters, water slides, and dubious dietary choices. Situated between Lake Ontario and Irondequoit Bay, Seabreeze (4600 Culver Road) offers thrilling steel coasters in addition to the old wooden Jack Rabbit, which was built in 1920, and is the oldest continuously operating rollercoaster in America. Soar high on the Yo-Yo, or cool off on the racing and splashing Log Flume. Seabreeze also offers a water park and kid-friendly rides, an arcade, a carousel museum, and more. This week, the park is open Wednesday, August 28 through Sunday, September 1, 11 a.m.-10 p.m., and Monday, September 2, 11 a.m.-9 p.m. The park will be closed until the following weekend, which is the last weekend it will be open until next season. Ride & Slide passes are available for $27.99, with discounts available for those 48” or shorter, for spectators (admission, no rides), or for those who purchase tickets online in advance of their visit. For more information, call 323-1900, or visit seabreeze.com. Roseland Waterpark (250 Eastern Blvd., Canandaigua) is a water-heavy amusement park that features tube rides, body slides, and a massive wave pool with heated water. Beach volleyball and bocce ball are available upon request at the Marina, free of cost. Paddleboats and canoes are available for rent at the marina for $5/half hour. Admission is $25.95 +tax, with discounts available for those 48” or shorter, for ages 60 and older, for spectators, and for those admitted after 3 p.m. The hours of operation are 11 a.m.-7 p.m. through September 2, when the park closes for the season.

RECREATION | FLEET FEET SPORTS SUMMER FEST
To many, the term “summer fest” is code for accepted public tipsiness, sway-dancing to jam tunes, and noshing on festival foods. But for the fitness fiends, the term might mean getting together with other übermensch for a little ol’ 12K race at 9 a.m. No big whoop. If you’re really that into punishing yourself, head to Steward Lodge at Mendon Ponds Park on Saturday, August 31. The hilly course starts on Douglas Road (just south of the dirt road to Stewart Lodge). Registration opens at 7:30 a.m., and the 12K begins at 9 a.m., but an early start will take place at 8:30 a.m. for those who run slower than 12-minute miles. A 5K race will begin at 9:05 a.m., and kids races (1/4 mile, then 1/2 mile, then mile) commence at 10:15 a.m. The awards ceremony will be held at about 10:30 a.m. The fee for participating in the 12K is $23, or $30 the day-of, and the 5K is $18, or $20 day-of, and kids races are free. For more information, visit fleetfeetsports. com or active.com. Your registration fee includes the race, a custom Summer Fest pint glass (for the first 450 registrants), post-race food, and fun. I’ll be on the couch, wishing I had your motivation. —BY REBECCA RAFFERTY noon, Sat noon & 3:30 p.m., Sun 3:30 p.m Included in admission: $5-$12. 271-3361. eastmanhouse.org.

THEATER | “CATS”
The swan song of this season’s Finger Lakes Musical Theatre Festival comes in the form of the second-longestrunning production on Broadway. Taylor Dayne, nationally recognized singer, songwriter, and actor, will appear as Grizabella in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s “CATS,” which opened at Merry-Go-Round Playhouse (6877 East Lake Road, Auburn) on August 21. After re-watching the video for Taylor Dane’s late 80’s, epic pop hit, “Tell it to My Heart,” full of swift choreography and melodrama, it was easy to see why she was a natural choice for the role of “the glamour cat.” The musical follows the Jellicle gang of cats as they gather to make the annual “Jellicle choice,” deciding which cat will ascend to the Heaviside Layer and come back to a new life. The show continues through September 11, with performances on Tuesdays & Wednesdays at 2 & 7:30 p.m., Thursdays at 7:30 p.m., Fridays & Saturdays at 8 p.m. (also 2 p.m. on 8/30), and Mondays at 2 p.m. Tickets are $22-$42.

A British apocalypse “The World’s End”
(R), DIRECTED BY EDGAR WRIGHT NOW PLAYING [ REVIEW ] BY GEORGE GRELLA
There will always be an England, at least as long as there’s a PBS, and as long as the Brits continue to mine one of their greatest natural resources, eccentricity. Trust an English filmmaker to spin some contemporary popular genres in a different direction, as Edgar Wright did a few years ago in “Shaun of the Dead,” a clever, funny take on the zombie flick, usually a most unsettling form in these parts.

Film Previews on page 26
In his latest movie, “The World’s End,” Wright once again toys with some well-established material, here a combination of science-fiction and horror flicks about aliens robbing humans of their identity. The subject emerged most powerfully in the 1950’s with films like “It Came From Outer Space” and “Invasion of the Body Snatchers” and still provides important themes for our time. Wright grafts the concept onto the structure of another contemporary favorite, the goofy buddy movie, a very odd decision indeed. In “The World’s End” Gary King (Simon Pegg) provides a voiceover back story about five friends in the lovely little town of Newton Haven who embark on a pub tour, the Golden Mile, which demands that they drink a pint of beer in the town’s 12 pubs, a marathon they never completed for understandable reasons — they were all too drunk, too sick, or too unconscious to make the full 12. Twenty years later, he visits his four companions and through a variety of unscrupulous methods, persuades them to complete

the tour for old time’s sake, to relive their youth, and just for the hell of it. When the quintet arrives in the village, everything looks strangely unchanged, including the string of picturesque pubs that constitute the Golden Mile — except that nobody recognizes them. Despite Gary’s manic cheerfulness and drunken loquacity, in places like The First Post, The Trusty Servant, and The Mermaid they encounter only cold shoulders and hostile stares. Finally, in a fight in the men’s room, Gary and his pals discover that a considerable number of Newton Haven’s citizenry are actually mechanical replacements — nobody likes to use the word “robot” because it’s politically incorrect. In addition to a good deal of quarreling among the friends about the past, the present, and Gary’s constant lies and deceptions, the rest of the movie consists of chases and fist fights, enough pursuits to stock a couple of blockbusters and enough saloon brawls to enliven a dozen Westerns. The group fights a series of battles with the “blanks,” as they decide to call them, unscrewing heads, ripping off limbs, which they then use as weapons, and smearing the mechanical creatures’ blue blood all over Newton Haven. The friends eventually learn from one of their old teachers, played suavely by Pierce Brosnan, that aliens from outer space, intent on establishing peace throughout the universe, take over whole towns, replacing any humans who
Clear and present “The Spectacular Now” (R), DIRECTED BY JAMES PONSOLDT NOW PLAYING [ REVIEW ] BY ADAM LUBITOW
resist with mechanical duplicates, a concept that, once again, provides the inspiration for a great many science-fiction films. When they reach the last pub on the Golden Mile, naturally named The World’s End, they finally confront the leader of the invasion, a voice from on high who engages in a comical philosophical debate with mad Gary. Throughout its length, the movie constantly alternates between comedy and horror, though the director uses even the most violent and startling moments for comic purposes. The antics of the quintet, especially the crazy Gary, weaken any of the usual shock or terror that some of the subject might ordinarily create. Even its apocalypse, the world’s end indeed, another staple of popular film, results form a droll view of technology, progress, and contemporary civilization, and its post-apocalyptic vision provides an even stranger surprise. “The World’s End” suggests some of the odd interrelationships between American and English films. Although it employs a great many familiar cinematic elements — stuff from traditional science-fiction and horror movies, the fashionable apocalyptic blockbusters, and even drunken buddy flicks like “The Hangover” — the picture displays a characteristic and mostly entertaining British drollery. Simon Pegg, who often plays a befuddled geek, dominates just about all the action with as sort of hyper-energetic, mercurial, and entirely gleeful impersonation of the crazy friend we all knew in high school who never grew up.
Just one month ago, in this very space, I was marveling at the number of teenage boy coming-of-age movies that have been released in theaters recently. It looks as though I spoke too soon, because here comes one more. Luckily, James Ponsoldt’s “The Spectacular Now” differentiates itself from the others, offering a subtle, bittersweet take on young love and the journey toward adulthood. While the film doesn’t break new ground, it avoids feeling formulaic at every turn. What it does, it does so well that it’s a joy to watch. Gregarious, popular Sutter Keely (Miles Teller, “Rabbit Hole” and “Footloose”) is the type of person who lives solely in the moment. He’s got charisma to spare, and an easy likability that wins people over, even as he occasionally infuriates them. It’s this quality that allows him to charm himself out of most situations except, it seems, when his girlfriend Cassidy

(Brie Larson) decides she’s had enough and it’s time for them to split up. He meets Aimee Finecky (Shailene Woodley, “The Descendants”) after he goes on a bit of a bender following the break-up, and she stumbles across him while out on her paper route. Aimee finds Sutter passed out on a stranger’s lawn. He has no recollection of how he got there, or what became of his car, so she offers to drive him around to help him look. Despite their wildly different personalities, they find one another easy to talk to, and there’s a clear attraction there. Aimee’s smart and a little shy, but thankfully not in the stereotypical Hollywood way you would expect. She enjoys the fact that this popular boy is paying attention to her, but appears to have enough confidence to not let him change her. Both Sutter and Aimee have close friends who warn them against entering into a relationship. Her friend thinks Sutter’s going to end up breaking Aimee’s heart, and Sutter’s friend gives pretty much the same reason. She’s never had a boyfriend; he’s had many girlfriends. She’s nerdy and likes reading sciencefiction and manga; he likes drinking. A lot. He never seems to be without a flask in hand, and the script from Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber (“500 Days of Summer”) is effective as it subtly makes it more and more apparent that there’s a problem there. Yet somehow it manages to avoid devolving into afterschool special territory. Throughout, the film skillfully finds ways to subvert expectations. It’s the rare teen movie that doesn’t feature a climax set at the prom. The performances from Miles Teller (who has a young John Cusack vibe going for him) and Shailene Woodley are truly something special. They share an easy, natural chemistry and their scenes
together make us feel as though we’re eavesdropping on conversations between real teenagers. This realism extends to the supporting characters, portrayed beautifully in a minimal amount of screentime by a talented collection of actors. Jennifer Jason Leigh is incredibly sympathetic as Sutter’s often-exasperated mother. Bob Odenkirk gets a couple touching, pivotal scenes as the owner of the men’s clothing store where Sutter works, and he’s miles from the sleazy character he portrays on “Breaking Bad.” Brie Larson is also fantastic in her role. In a lesser movie, her character would be the blonde bitch out to get even with the girl who snatched her man, but the screenplay is smarter than that. In many ways, it lets her character be the smartest of the bunch. She’s clearly still attracted to Sutter, but conscious of the fact that he’s probably bad for her. The film’s screenplay does flirt with conventionality toward the end, as it moves Sutter toward the concrete moment of clarity that’s a necessity in coming-of-age stories. It’s a little too onthe-nose about the ways Sutter’s problems stem largely from an absentee father. We eventually meet his father, played by Kyle Chandler, after Aimee encourages Sutter to track him down. It’s another case of the film, through performance and writing, making a character who could easily have fallen into cliche feel like an actual person. I also wish the script addressed the way Aimee seems to start to enable her boyfriend’s drinking, but the film is based on a novel (written by Tim Tharp), and it’s likely that the story loses some of those nuances in its translation to the screen. But these are minor quibbles with a film that offers the pleasure of a simple, straightforward story, told exceedingly well.
