that Albany and SUNY are. We are just a small pond compared with the state and federal government who are funding the effort. Sometimes leadership requires humility. Let’s accept that the headquarters will be in the Legacy building and move on to making great things happen for our community.
Rochester lacks leadership
Rochester has leaders coming out of its ears. What they don’t provide is leadership. Leadership requires vision, tenacity, and the ability to communicate and inspire stakeholders so they align and coalesce until the objective is achieved. Unfortunately, we are victims of premature abandonment. Once the publicity and ego-stroking is done and the cameras go away, all that’s left is the wind blowing detritus down the abandoned streets. The seeds of violence culminating in three homicides [on Genesee Street] were sown decades ago when the perpetrators were born. There is no question that we suffer from intergenerational family dysfunction. But we also suffer from institutional inadequacy. We have vast resources both financial and organizational, but a failure of leadership and vision has allowed silos to flourish while actual accomplishments wane, shrivel, and blow away. Successful communities have leaders who are narrowly focused and have consistent leadership. So what to do? Focus the majority of our effort on supporting the youngest citizens in our community. First, prevent teen pregnancy. Second, provide supportive prenatal care. Third, do everything we can possibly do to get kids off to the best start in life. Pre-k is vital. And get some real leadership with the horsepower to fix our schools. We need a “Baltimore Mom” to grab us by the shirt, smack us upside the head, and hold us accountable for our actions. The other, less dire conflict is the photonics headquarters dustup (Urban Journal, August 19). The reality is that whoever controls the purse strings makes the rules. Although the U of R may be a big deal in Rochester, it’s not the powerhouse
Blame for city problems is misplaced
I read the lead story by Mary Anna Towler with regard to the triple homicide on Genesee Street (Analysis, August 26), and have come to the following conclusions. There is a large effort to blame white folks in particular for the actions that occur in the ghetto, which I believe is entirely misplaced. One gets tired of the unrelenting drumbeat of blaming others for the bad decisions that the criminal folks commit — concepts like “embedded racism” and other such blather. Indeed we have a black female mayor, a Democratic Congress woman, and the first biracial president in history. When will people wake up and stop blaming others and take personal responsibility for their actions, instead of scapegoating white people? DAVID HENNELLY
Drugs are killing Rochester
Drugs control Rochester and the gangs are driven by drugs. The gangs fight and kill over corners and territories. They take our teens to sell drugs. There is a loss of a moral compass and good quality of life in many parts of Rochester. Many of our parents are not accessible to their children. They may love their children as much as any other parent, but their souls have been stolen by drugs. Some of our citizens prostitute for drugs and contract and spread HIV/AIDS. Some of our citizens sell their food stamps and benefits for drugs. Some of our adults are unable to function or work because of drugs. Many of our children are angry and depressed because they live in a war zone. We need the drug world cleaned up in the city. Drugs kill.
Drug dealers kill. And most of our crime is tied to drugs. It is Rochester’s genocide. One must always remember that poor people are not bad people. Bad people are bad people. The less fortunate of our community are being held hostage by this drug world. Government should: • Increase the budget for public safety and develop a large, active drug-enforcement team; • bring in other branches of government. Homeland Security should investigate our gangs. Who controls these gangs and who supplies them with guns and drugs? • streamline communication between all law enforcement. Officers at Neighborhood Service centers should be in constant communication with the community and police on the streets; • judges must stop the revolvingdoor justice system; • citizens must back the police. If there is a bad officer, then he or she should be dealt with. The whole department should not be condemned; • government should stop protecting bad landlords who allow dealers to sell from their properties; • government should find the individuals and stores that buy food stamps from citizens at a low price so that people can buy drugs; • schools should be made safe and free from drugs dealers. Let us all take a stand or we all have blood on our hands. MARY COFFEY

We are witnessing the result of 50 years or more of discrimination, some of it overt and some not. Redlining and white flight were prevalent years ago and we are living with those results. These were all conscious decisions, some of them by the highest authorities in the land. This outcome was almost predictable. It would take a monumental effort at all levels of society to overcome the savage inertia that afflicts this area and frankly I don’t see it coming any time soon. PAUL TYLER

URBAN JOURNAL | BY MARY ANNA TOWLER
Waiting for Hillary It’s a long time until the 2016 presidential election, a friend reminds me. Doesn’t matter; I can’t stop tracking the news – about the Democrats as well as those zany Republicans. And I’m getting really worried about Hillary Clinton. She is certainly qualified to be president. And while I don’t embrace all of her positions, for liberals like me, she is clearly far better than any of the Republicans. But Clinton looks very, very vulnerable against many of the Republicans – even Donald Trump. The Democratic elite may want her. She might make an excellent president. But I’m becoming convinced that she can’t be elected. I also worry that even if she were elected, she would have as tough a time getting things done as Barack Obama has. She wouldn’t encounter the racism that he has, but plenty of Republicans in Congress simply despise her, and have for a very long time. In recent national poll numbers from Real Clear Politics, Clinton was ahead of Donald Trump by only 2.4 points. She beat Jeb Bush by 3.2 and Ben Carson by 5. And she was ahead of Marco Rubio by only 1 point. The national campaign hasn’t formally started, of course, and a lot will change. Still, it’s troubling that Clinton’s margins are so slim and that her poll numbers are getting worse. A Democrat absolutely must win the 2016 presidential election. Way too much is at stake, and the Republican candidates have marched together into fringe land. Jeb Bush would have us heavily involved in fighting in Iraq again and lord knows where else (Iran, of course, being first on the list). Scott Walker says the US should consider building a wall between us and Canada to keep out terrorists. Chris Christie wants to track foreign visitors the way Fed Ex tracks packages. Ben Carson, who is closing in on Donald Trump for the lead in Iowa caucus polls, told MSNBC that he is “thinking very seriously” about having a “covert” arm of government employ people to spy on co-workers so they’ll work harder. Marco Rubio opposes policies to limit greenhouse-gas emissions to combat climate change and opposes abortion, even to protect the life of the mother. And then, of course, there’s Donald Trump. We can laugh, and many people are. That’s looking increasingly like a very bad idea. The Trump-Sanders phenomena seem real. Many voters are fed up with politics and politicians. They’re hungry for someone they think will tell the truth – someone they can trust. And poll after poll says this is Hillary
Many voters want someone they can trust. And poll after poll says this is Hillary Clinton’s biggest handicap.” Clinton’s biggest handicap. Many voters don’t trust her and don’t like her. Since she’s not an unknown, I don’t see how she can convince people that she’s trustworthy. And I think that spells almost certain defeat. Who’s the alternative? Much as I agree with Bernie Sanders on many issues, he stands absolutely no chance of being elected. None. The only viable Democrat, I think, is Vice President Joe Biden. Biden said late last week that he hadn’t made up his mind, that his decision would depend on whether he and his family are emotionally ready for a campaign. Clinton would make his decision easier, I suspect, if her falling poll numbers and the Republicans’ pummeling convinced her to pull out of the race. Then, a sense that his party and his country needed him might give Biden the strength he’s not yet sure he has. But Clinton being Clinton, there is little possibility that she’ll quit. In fact, I’d bet that the worse things look for her, the harder she’ll dig in her heels. And then, sadly, her negatives will feed on themselves. I’m a pessimist at heart, and plenty of experienced political observers are insisting that Clinton will do fine, that she’ll not only have an easy time of it in most of the primaries but that she’s hands-down the favorite for the general election. We can hope. And I do. But the optimists’ optimism won’t keep me from worrying.

Lawsuit over oil trains A pending lawsuit against the operator of an oil train terminal in the City of Albany could affect Monroe County. As many as 300 rail tanker cars carrying crude oil pass through Monroe each day — most headed for the Albany terminal. Anything that reduces or eliminates the number of oil trains bound for the terminal would likely reduce the number of oil trains that pass through Monroe County. The Albany trains queue up outside of the terminal on tracks that run alongside a public housing complex. Harmful emissions from the crude-oil shipments disproportionately affect residents of the complex, Albany County officials say.

They say that Global Companies, the terminal’s owneroperator, failed to notify state and federal officials when it began accepting crude-oil shipments, and that they will file a federal Clean Air Act lawsuit against Global. In a statement published by Politico New York, Global executive vice president says that the company has “complied with all regulatory and permitting requirements.” The Albany terminal has become a major East Coast oil-train hub. Hardly any oil passed through the terminal three years ago, compared to the two-billion gallons that pass through annually now.

Most of the oil comes from the Bakken Shale. In addition to concerns about the ongoing use of fossil fuels, environmental activists and others worry about the possibility that the oil trains will derail. Most oil trains travel without incident. But the cars carrying the oil are known to puncture or rupture easily, and a single derailment can be very destructive. That’s one of the reasons why environmental groups are campaigning against the shipments, and why some of the people who live near railroad tracks are terrified of the trains.

Many Latino parents believe that dual language learning is critically important to the success of Latino students. But not everyone agrees. “In Miami and New York City, you can get a job even if you don’t speak English. But in Rochester, you have to know English.” [ PATRICIA CRUZ-IRVING ]
CULTURE | BY TIM LOUIS MACALUSO
Latinos’ growing influence Learning how to turn growing Latino consumer and political power into action is the main goal of the annual “Upstate Latino Summit,” which is being held in Rochester this year on Wednesday, September 16. The one-day event of workshops and panel discussions is expected to draw Latino leaders from around the state to the Rochester Riverside Convention Center. Registration information: www.iaal.org. Latinos are the fastest-growing demographic in Upstate New York, says Patricia Cruz-Irving, director of communication and development for the Ibero-American Action League. More than 63,000 Latinos live in Monroe County. The Hispanic-Latino consumer market in the US will reach $1.2 trillion in 2015, according to a Nielsen report, and its five-year growth rate is eclipsing the rate of most other demographic markets. Puerto Ricans make up the majority of Upstate Latinos, Cruz-Irving says, but there are also many people from Mexico, Latin America, Bolivia, and Chile. There’s even a small group from Spain who come to Upstate because of companies such as Iberdrola USA, which is Rochester Gas & Electric’s parent company. “There are a lot of different types of Latino
and Hispanic groups and some are quite affluent living in the suburbs while others are living in the city well below the poverty line,” Cruz-Irving says. Addressing issues that impact the entire community isn’t easy, she says. The September 16 summit will have panel discussions on education, health, politics, immigration, and business development. There is enormous interest in tapping into the growing Latino consumer market, CruzIrving says. Business people want to know, for example, how to market products to Latinos, she says. “We all go to the grocery store, we buy cell phones, we buy cars — so should they be communicating to us in English, Spanish, or both?” she says. But there are serious social issues that need to be addressed, too, she says. “The graduation rate for Latinos in city schools is well below 50 percent,” Cruz-Irving says, “and that impacts the entire city, Monroe County, and the region.” Many Latino parents believe that dual language learning is critically important to the success of Latino students, she says. But not everyone shares that view. “It’s an education issue, but it’s also a business issue,” Cruz-Irving says. “In Miami

and New York City, you can get a job even if you don’t speak English. But in Rochester, you have to know English.” Health care is another important issue for the Latino community, Cruz-Irving says. Teen pregnancy among urban Latina girls is high and often causes them to drop out of school, she says. And a recent Finger Lakes Health Systems report showed that Latina women in the region have one of the highest infant mortality rates in the country. The summit will also have panel discussions on politics and immigration. If there’s a common thread throughout the day’s event, Cruz-Irving says, it’s understanding the benefits of engagement. “This all about gathering information and making connections,” she says.

New institute Emmy-winning composer Jeff Beal and his wife, vocalist Joan Beal, will commit $2 million to the Eastman School of Music, the couple’s alma mater, to launch the Beal Institute for Film Music and Contemporary Media. The gift will fund a program to prepare students for film and contemporary media music creation. Students will have opportunities to write, produce, and perform music for film and contemporary media. Jeff Beal will be artistic director of the institute, which will provide support for student internships; scholarships and projects; instruction; visiting artist residencies; and technology and infrastructure. The institute will offer students opportunities to work with professionals who write for film and other contemporary media. Collaboration on crossdisciplinary and multimedia projects with students and faculty from humanities, composition, and other Eastman School departments, as well as with community arts organizations and partnering universities will be encouraged. The institute will also enhance the new jazz and contemporary media graduate degree program in convergent artistry, focusing on writing scores for film and other applications, such as video games. “Eastman has always been dedicated to developing artists with the strong musical fundamentals needed across the professional music world,” says Joan Beal, whose career has spanned performances in opera, in concert with new music ensembles, and in recording studios.

SEPTEMBER 9-15, 2015
The largest solar power system in the City of Rochester is tucked unobtrusively behind the Bausch + Lomb building on North Goodman Street. The 3,600 glass-and-metal panels at the corner of Northland Avenue and Lyceum Street sit at the end of a quiet neighborhood and are partially shielded from view. The Bausch + Lomb system is, for now, unique because of its size. But its low-key presence mirrors the quiet-but-growing presence of solar in the city. Over the past decade, more than 141 home and small commercial solar power systems have been installed in Rochester, according to the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority. The installations vary from the solar panels on the county’s crime lab to the system that Burt and Paola Betchart installed on their Beechwood neighborhood home. “The sooner we can get to the point that we’re not emitting as much carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, the better off we’ll be,” Burt Betchart says. Solar’s presence in Rochester will almost certainly continue to increase. The Solarize the Flower City campaign has been holding regular meetings for residents of southeast neighborhoods to learn about residential solar; organizers plan to expand to other parts of the city next year. The campaign is a partnership between some local nonprofits, solar installers, the City of Rochester, and NYSERDA. The group has also negotiated discounts with installers that, when combined with state and federal subsidies, make it drastically cheaper for a homeowner to buy and install a system.
And city officials are working to change the zoning law to allow developers to build solar arrays on certain lots zoned for manufacturing use, though with some caveats. The change would clear the way for developers to build larger solar arrays on brownfields, putting the troubled properties back into use and providing a source of inexpensive, low-carbon energy. A city project is driving the zoning change. Officials want a developer to build a solar power system at 1655 Lexington Avenue — a former dump site owned by the city — and then sell the generated electricity to the city. Officials publicly solicited proposals for the project and are now reviewing the submissions. Burt Betchart has been interested in solar power for a long time; he’s a
physicist and says that he enjoys learning how the technology works economically and scientifically. He had discussions about solar in social settings, as well as with advocates and installers. And the more he learned about the systems and their economics, he says, the more his interest grew. He and his wife decided to install solar not long after they bought their house in March 2014. By January, they had a 16 panel, 4.4 kilowatt system operating. The system and installation cost $18,000, but after state and federal incentives, Burt Betchart says, the couple paid $5,000. Historically, there’s been a perception that city houses aren’t allowed to have solar, or that the dense nature of cities doesn’t lend itself to solar systems. But that’s wrong, at least in Rochester.
The city streamlined its permit process to encourage installation of solar power systems on houses, and Betchart says that getting the necessary approval was straightforward. For solar panels to work well, they need to have good exposure to sunlight, and a south-facing roof is usually preferred. That’s a basic fact that holds true whether the panels are installed in rural or urban areas. Betchart’s house has good southern exposure, he says, so placing the panels was simple. Half are on top of the house’s front porch, while the other half are on the roof. The installer, Ontario-based Sustainable Energy Developments, initially estimated that the Betcharts would recoup their investment within 10 years through electricity cost savings. But it may happen sooner. “I monitor it pretty closely,” Burt Betchart says, “and it’s been performing better than promised.” Solarize the Flower City has been working to show city residents that solar is feasible for their homes, churches, and businesses. Through the effort, 56 households have had solar assessments, says Susan Spencer, the president and founder of ROCSPOT, a local solar power advocacy organization and Solarize partner. Spencer says she can’t disclose how many installation contracts have been signed. Homeowners who sign installation contracts through the Solarize campaign get a 20 percent discount on their systems. The organizers and installers have negotiated an
SOUTH WEDGE area businesses & restaurants
additional 6 percent discount that ends on October 15. An average 6-kilowatt home system costs around $25,000 off the shelf, Spencer says. But between the Solarize discounts and government tax credits, she says, the price would be knocked down to around $7,500. The homeowner, on average, would recoup that cost in six years through electricity cost savings, Spencer says.
Paid for in part by the Business Association of the South Wedge Area.
City officials also expect that state
incentives will lead to more interest in large solar arrays, which is one of the reasons they’re revisiting the city’s zoning laws. Bausch + Lomb was able to install its solar plant because it’s considered a secondary use of the company’s property; the building is the main use. Current city zoning laws do not allow solar arrays as a property’s sole or main use. But proposed revisions to the city’s M-1 Industrial Districts, which are manufacturing areas, would clear the way for some larger-scale, standalone solar installations. The changes would allow solar as the primary use of M1 properties, as long as the developer can show that the sites aren’t viable for manufacturing use. The developer would have to apply for a special permit from the city. City Council members will hold a public hearing on the zoning changes on September 16. They’ll most likely vote on the legislation the same night. “The state is encouraging these larger systems to be installed, so we want to be ready for if a developer wants to install a system in the city in an M-1 district,” says Anne Spaulding, the city’s sustainability manager. “We need to make that possible because obviously we’re in favor of renewable energy.” The city also has to be ready for its own project on the 10-acre Lexington Avenue site. Officials sought proposals for a system with a generating capacity of up to 2 megawatts, with the understanding that the city government would purchase all of the electricity. Local governments across the Rochester region use a similar approach. The Wayne County town of Williamson leased its closed landfill to a developer who built a solar array and sells the electricity to the town. The panels started generating electricity in December and should offset most of the town government’s energy use. Supervisor James Hoffman said that he expects the town to save approximately $1.5 million in electricity costs over 20 years.

Roots in Pittsford [ CHOW HOUND ] BY KATIE LIBBY
“Organic.” “Local.” “Sustainable.” There are certain buzz words that pop up for pretty much every restaurant that opens these days — which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Hopefully we are getting to the point where those elements are a given. And with the recent opening of Root 31 Café and Eatery (3349 Monroe Avenue) in Pittsford Plaza, we are getting that much closer to the goal. Owner Roland Perrin started his career in France where he was in the business of importing dairy products from all over Europe. The job started his passion for developing relationships with local farmers and the importance of using fresh product. “It’s necessary to support people,” Perrin says. “Without economic sustainability for farmers, it’s impossible to have good security for the product.” Perrin moved to Rochester with his wife, who is from the area, and purchased the Colie’s Café business. He renamed the café Root 31 Café and Eatery and officially opened for business on June 26. The menu offers an assortment of sandwiches, salads, and pizza, and is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. All of the menu
items are under $15. The Beets and Sweets salad ($7.25) is made with roasted beets, sweet potato, feta cheese, quinoa salad, spinach, craisins, and almonds, and tossed with a lemon vinaigrette. Six different specialty pizzas are available, along with the ability to create your own. The Joe’s Style White Pizza ($7.25 for petite, $8.75 for personal, and $13.80 for grande) starts with a white sauce and is layered with mozzarella, garlic herb butter, Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, bacon, capers, onions, and arugula. Root 31 is one of the only no-waste restaurants in Rochester — all waste is either recycled or composted. Perrin says he firmly believes in giving back to the earth that creates the product that we consume. Root 31 Café and Eatery is located in Pittsford Plaza (3349 Monroe Avenue). And is open Monday through Sunday, 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. Catering is also available. 383-5660. For more information, visit root31.com.
Black Button Distilling (85 Railroad Street)
will release its anticipated signature product, the Four Grain Bourbon, on Friday, September 25. The distillery will host a launch party from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. The
“complex bourbon with a hint of spice” is made with 100 percent New York State grown grain. More information can be found at blackbuttondistilling.com. Amore Italian Restaurant & Wine Bar (1750 East Avenue) will host the next installment of “The Chef & The Doctor” dinner series on Monday, September 14. Two seatings will be offered, one beginning at 5:30 p.m. and one at 7:30 p.m. The dinner pairs Chef Cesare Casella from New York City’s Salumeria Rosi with Dr. Alessio Fasano, director of the Center for Celiac Research at Massachusetts General Hospital. The menu will be entirely gluten-free and celebrate the benefits of the Mediterranean diet. Reservations are $85 per person and can be made by calling Amore at 452-8780. The next Food Truck Rodeo (Rochester Public Market, 280 North Union Street) will take place on Wednesday, September 30, from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. Music will be provided by Donnibrooke (listed as “country, rock, and everything in between”). The South Wedge Bar Olympics will take place on Saturday, September 19, at 2 p.m. The event celebrates the release of the Swiftwater/Stoneyard Double IPA. The event kicks off with the official launch of
the Double IPA at Swiftwater Brewing Company (378 Mt. Hope Avenue) and continues to local South Wedge bars: Lux Lounge, Butapub, and Tap and Mallet. More information can be found on Facebook by searching “South Wedge Bar Olympics.”
Fiorella (5 Public Market), a casual Italian
eatery, has opened for breakfast and lunch on market days (Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday) from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Dinner service will start in mid-September. Visit restaurantfiorella.com for more information. The owners of Tavern 58 at Gibbs and Tavern at Clover have opened Tavern 135 (135 West Commercial Street) in East Rochester.

to describe a band’s sound like, say, “hobobilly.” Now I didn’t come up with this one, the band did, but it’s fairly accurate when describing the uber-transient, forever transplanted road dogs in Goddamn Gallows. This band comes on like a hobo camp overrun with rabies (that one’s mine). There’s out of control shuffles and a touch of Celtic calamity a la Flogging Molly. The sound is loud, fast, and often squealing on two wheels as it navigates the hairpin madness and breakneck time signatures. — BY FRANK DE BLASE

Pink Elephant and Cantelope will also perform.

Rob & Gary Acoustic.
For an exceedingly earnest album, MD Woods’s latest EP, “Young & Vain Vol. 2,” starts on an ironic note. Lead singer Nick Moore sounds neither young nor vain when he sings, “And I don’t believe in fate, I don’t believe there’s just that one / But my God, my heart — it shakes — every time I see her smile.” So begins the opening track, “Finally In Love,” from the EP, which was self-released on July 6 with Howlo’s Ben Morey at the helm as co-producer with the band. This contemplative four-song suite of folk rock ballads revolves around Moore’s fervent blue-collar vocals. With a voice that combines Bruce Springsteen’s gruff timbre with Christopher Paul Stelling’s tender delivery, Moore sounds bloodied and bruised, but self-aware and resolute. It is this spirit that powers each song and gives the EP its potency, though the pace lags during the mournful and somewhat ponderous second track, “Vomit.” On the potent “Bosses,” drummer Adam Netsky’s heartbeat rhythm sounds like a distant war march and Ben Turiano plucks away insistently on the banjo, while Moore coaxes unwieldy spirits from a Theremin. The EP closes with “Surface,” a rollicking anthem that sounds like a swampy, backwoods U2. If you like passionate singer-songwriter material, “Young & Vain Vol. 2” is right in your wheelhouse. — BY DANIEL KUSHNER

The children, they ask me every now and then: “Frank, is there a Rochester sound?” To which I respond, after I realize they were speaking to me: “There was.” Nowadays, it’s all over the map with a multitudinous melting pot of genres, sub genres, and a sort of Frankensteined mélange. But there was a time — mid-80’s to the mid-90’s — when there was a pervading garage undertone to Rochester’s music scene. Though it is still there in fragments, it takes bands like Big Ditch to remind us just how great this music was … and is. Big Ditch ain’t pure garage, but then again garage rock was never about purity. Big Ditch’s sound is big and cohesive within its variety. Yes, it taps into those sub-genres we talked about, but it is a well put-together collection. On top and in front of the whole soiree and cracking the whip is singer Stan “The Man” Merrell with his dynamic epiglottal drama on cuts like “Broke Back Boogie,” reminiscent of Lux Interior, or Iggy swinging in the funhouse on “Stump Grinder” and “Two Headed Cajun.” Besides Merrell, this extra-fine rock ‘n’ roll record is full of hipsters, scenesters, and vets who have prowled nightlife dives here for years like Dan Frank, Jack Schaefer, Mark Cuminale, Ken Frank, and Pat Lowery. Dig this record deep … it’s the sound of today, the sound of Rochester. — BY FRANK DE BLASE

“PLANET OF THE CROSSING” VINYL RELEASE PARTY SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 12 THE RECORD ARCHIVE, 33 1/3 ROCKWOOD STREET 5 P.M. | $30; INCLUDES VINYL OF NEW ALBUM | RECORDARCHIVE.COM GFRANCISHIGGINS.BANDCAMP.COM [ INTERVIEW ] BY ERIC WITKOWSKI
Edge of Jupiter’s first show was opening for Wrist Rocket in 1999. Its last show was in Boston in 2013; after a solid run, Guy Higgins, the band’s leader, had put the Edge of Jupiter to rest. However, a little over a year ago, Higgins went in to the studio to demo ideas with Chris Vandeviver, the head honcho and engineer at Brass Palace Recording. Inspiration struck soon after Guy recorded all the parts for the album, and the resurgence of the proggy alt-rock outfit — which, for the live band, includes Mike Satter, Neil Polanski, Scott Higgins, Emma Yun-Chieh Hsieh, and Jay Rodgers — began to take shape. Edge of Jupiter is returning on September 12 in massive style during a show at The
Record Archive. The ticket includes a copy of the new record, a download of the album, food from the Le Petit Poutine food truck, an open bar from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., posters, and some surprise items. City Newspaper recently sat down with Higgins to talk about the band’s history, moving forward, and the new studio release. And edited transcript of that conversation follows. City: “Planet of the Crossing” took more than a year to make. How was this experience different from past recordings?
Guy Higgins: This recording was totally posthumous. The band hadn’t played in a long time and in a lot of ways this recording began almost as an homage to Edge of Jupiter. However, as the project went on and the ideas took shape, the other members’ interest grew, and their creative input began to get put on the table. But in the end, the biggest difference from past studio experiences was that this was my first stab at co-producing an album. What kind of musical changes has the band gone through after 20 years together?
Stylistically we have changed a lot. Mike Satter and I have always been the core
group, so our styles have grown together. We began when we were 14 years old, and we started playing a lot of the early 90’s Seattle sound, plus stuff like Pink Floyd and Sabbath. At the time we hadn’t honed in on our sensibility to what makes a good song. That changed a lot 10 years ago when Jay Rodgers, Benjamin Seyna, and Neil Polanski joined the band. They brought a real experimental, progressive sound that was grounded in song structure. Some big influences now are groups like Squarepusher and Swervedriver. You played all the instruments on the new album. What did you learn from that undertaking?
It was humbling. It’s just you and an engineer, and the slightest mistake is all on you. Chris Vandeviver really held me to task. He pointed out lots of ideas for things that could be worked on, and then he brought me in on the engineering and mixing end. I also picked up a lot from playing bass tracks. You realize the responsibility of it, and as a drummer, it really started to inform my playing. Vandeviver spent a whole year working with you, and showing you the ropes on producing and mixing. How was it working with him?
Chris is very focused and does not let you waste time. He lets you know how he feels, and is a genuine producer. He gets things done no matter what obstacle comes up, whether it’s finding a weird way of setting up in a closet, a basement, whatever. The best sound, the most truthful sound is always his goal. I think that everything in a song should evolve right up to the recording, and he is great at bringing all the details to a culmination. Where will Edge of Jupiter be going from here?
Given the new interest from band mates, we are moving forward as a full-time band again. We are releasing a new website in conjunction with our Record Archive show on the 12th. The site (edgeofjupiter. com) will have all six of our albums available plus music videos. The plan is to play one show a month from here on out with Mike and I plus a revolving cast. It feels good to be out there because I think that rock is a little pigeon-holed right now. I like to think we have a little of everything in our sound. We have nothing but respect and love for music, and we want to share that with our fans. rochestercitynewspaper.com CITY 13

Outasight — the moniker of singer-songwriter Richard Andrew — floats through hip-hop, dance, and top-40-style exuberance without a second-thought. There’s a tinge of classic soul to Outsight’s grand pop, and a grandness to Outsight’s sound. These are songs that sound like they should be on big stages with a blinding light show.
The Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra’s 2015-16 Pops series opens in style when Broadway actress Megan Hilty takes the stage with the orchestra — led by Principal Pops Conductor Jeff Tyzik. Hilty first garnered attention when, while serving as a standby for Glinda in Stephen Schwartz’s hit musical “Wicked,” she made her Broadway debut performing alongside Idina Menzel in 2004.

[ INTRODUCTION ] BY JAKE CLAPP
ochester has embraced its fringe side. Now in its fourth year, the First Niagara Rochester Fringe Festival has grown to be one of the largest multi-arts festivals in New York State, and one of the best-attended fringe festivals in the nation. Debuting in 2012, the festival drew more than 32,000 attendees across 5 days. The initial success prompted the fringe to expand to 10 days the next year, and that festival attracted more than 50,000 people. An estimated 60,000 individuals came out during the 2014 edition for more than 380 shows across 28 venues — and the performances themselves were starting to settle into the fringe concept. Shows taking place in parked cars and camping tents, giant tricycles pulled from a Terry Gilliam fever dream parading around Manhattan Square, Gibbs Street filled with more than 200 ghosts, venues filled for stand-up comedy, dance premieres, gospel choirs, and drag performers; artists have become more comfortable with pushing the traditional boundaries of a performance. This year, the Rochester Fringe Festival will feature more than 500 performances and events, taking place Thursday, September 17, through Saturday, September 26, across indoor and outdoor venues in and around downtown Rochester. The festival is put on by a nonprofit corporation spearheaded by some of the area’s key cultural institutions, including Geva Theatre Center, the George Eastman House, Garth Fagan Dance, Eastman School
of Music, and others. What makes Fringe stand out from other arts festivals is that participating venues curate their own shows. Acts applied earlier this year and the various theaters, galleries, cafes, and other venues picked the shows that fit them best. Tickets for Fringe Festival shows vary per venue, typically ranging between $5 and $15 (and headlining acts typically have higher ticket prices). Still, there are dozens of completely free spectacles, including Grounded Aerial, one of this year’s headliners, at the annual Friday on the Fringe in Martin Luther King Jr. Park. Tickets for individual shows are available online at rochesterfringe.com, by phone at 957-9837, and in person at each venue starting an hour before show time. There will also be a Spiegeltent box office open at the corner of Main and Gibbs. Fringe Fanatic Passes, which grant admission to all Fringe Shows (except for a few restrictions on several headliner shows), cost $190 and can be purchased online, by phone, or at the Spiegeltent box office. For a full schedule of the festival, a list of venues, maps, and other information, see the official Fringe Festival Guide, included in this issue or visit Rochesterfringe.com. City Newspaper will offer extensive coverage of the 2015 Rochester Fringe Festival. Look for daily blogs during the run of the festival, with photos, reviews, and our critics’ picks for best of the fest. And make sure to pick up our Fringe Review in print in the September 23 issue.

s R e L d H GROUNDED AERIAL
To call Grounded Aerial just a dance performance is akin to referring to a Lamborghini as just “a car,” or Mount Everest as “big.” It may certainly be technically accurate, but at the same time, those descriptions barely scratch the surface. Featuring performers formerly of STOMP, Cirque du Soleil, Blue Man Group, Pilobolus, De La Guarda, and Momix, Grounded Aerial, quite literally, brings dance to new heights. The group’s performances blend precise dance movements with intense contortionist acts and precarious aerial moves, all grounded together by a strong plot line. With more than 30 years of experience, the troupe has performed on NBC’s “I Can Do That” and during Microsoft’s Worldwide Vista and Office Logo launch. For this show, Grounded Aerial will perform on the side of the 21-story HSBC building as well as on the “Tribute to Man” metal framework. Grounded Aerial will perform on Friday, September 18, as part of Friday on the Fringe at Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Park at Manhattan Square. Friday on the Fringe begins at 5 p.m.; Grounded Aerial will perform at 8 p.m. The show is free for all ages. — BY GINO FANELLI
REMOTE ROCHESTER Created by site-specific theater company Rimini Protokoll, Remote Rochester is a pedestrian-based live-art journey that aims to engender discovery of the city, of the self, and of reality in a completely unique way. During each “performance,” 50 participants will begin at a specified starting point, put on headphones, and follow the recorded directions along a secret path around Rochester, interacting with the environment as they go. Part of the “Remote X” project, Remote Rochester is Rimini Protokoll’s second installment in the United States — other “Remote X” projects have taken place in Berlin, Milan, Amsterdam, Paris, and New York. Remote Rochester has various start times each day of the Fringe Festival. For specifics, visit rochesterfringe.com. Groups should gather at the Spiegelgarden 15 minutes prior to the start time. $28. Appropriate for ages 13 and older. — BY NOLAN H. PARKER
JAMIE LISSOW After opening for Patton Oswalt and Jay Pharoah at past Rochester Fringe Festivals, Jamie Lissow is finally getting his own hour-long headliner set at the Fringe. A Rochester native and Brother Wease’s former sidekick, Lissow has appeared on “The Late Show,” and has a half-hour special on Comedy Central. He’s been featured at The Montreal Comedy Festival, The Great American Comedy Festival, appeared on Fox News’s “Redeye” more than 50 times (proudly maintaining “no political opinions” throughout), and recently finished co-writing and starring in an upcoming sitcom, “Real Rob,” with Rob Schneider. Opening for Lissow will be Brian Herberger, the winner of Buffalo’s Funniest Person Contest. Jamie Lissow will perform on Saturday, September 19, at 9:30 p.m. in the Spiegeltent. $18. Appropriate for ages 16 and older. — BY NOLAN H. PARKER 20 CITY SEPTEMBER 9-15, 2015

THE AURORA SPIEGELTENT After a two-year-run with The Magic Crystal Spiegeltent, the Rochester Fringe Festival is making a little upgrade. This year’s Spiegeltent performances will be hosted in The Aurora, from The Netherlands, making its United States debut at the intersection of East Main Street and Gibbs Street. Adorned with red velvet draped booths, stained glass windows, and a large wooden floor, the Spiegeltent’s regal atmosphere will stand as a great backdrop for some pretty unique performances. Along with performances of “Cabinet of Wonders” and “Princess Wendy’s Late Nite Tease Room,” and a set from comedian Jamie Lissow, the Spiegeltent will again host the ever-popular Silent Disco. As the name implies, the dance floor of the Aurora, will remain quiet during the Silent Disco, while dancers use headphones to groove to the music. A twochannel system will allow people to pick between competing live DJs. Silent Disco takes place September 18, 19, 25, and 26, at 11 p.m. and is appropriate for ages 18 and older. Tickets are $10. A mid-day iteration of the Silent Disco, the Brown Bag Disco, will be offered on Friday, September 25, complete with a free bagged lunch with the $9 entrance fee. For more information on all of the events taking place in the Spiegeltent and the adjoining Spiegelgarden, visit rochesterfringe.com. — BY GINO FANELLI
MATT AND HEIDI MORGAN Performers Matt and Heidi Morgan, hosts of the show “Absinthe” at the Las Vegas Spiegelworld, will bring their anarchic style to the Rochester Fringe Festival with a new variety show, “Cabinet of Wonders.” The show will make its world-premiere during this year’s Fringe. It’s difficult to say what to actually expect from “Cabinet of Wonders.” Draped in mystery, the short-list of performances will include comedy, contortionists, acrobatics, aerial performances, feats of strength, and a one-legged tap dancer. Matt and Heidi Morgan will also host “Princess Wendy’s Late Nite Tease Room,” an adult comedy and burlesque romp about a down-and-out professional birthday party entertainer. “Cabinet of Wonders” has various show times in the Spiegeltent each day of the festival. For specifics, visit rochesterfringe.com. $33-$36. Appropriate for ages 13 and older. “Princess Wendy’s Late Nite Tease Room” will take place Thursday, September 24, through Saturday, September 26, in the Spiegeltent. 9:30 p.m. each night. $18. Appropriate for ages 18 and older. — BY GINO FANELLI

A CONVERSATION WITH HEADLINER LUKE KEMPNER [ INTERVIEW ] BY RON NETSKY
ith its multitude of characters and intricate plot lines, Downton Abbey can sometimes be difficult to follow. But when Luke Kempner takes the appropriately august Kilbourn Hall stage to perform “Upside Downton,” you will only have to focus on one man. Of course it’s not quite that simple. Mr. Carson, Lady Mary, Mrs. Hughes, the Dowager, and many others will be there. But they’ll all be played by Kempner, a master impressionist who will channel character after character at a breakneck pace. In the midst of building his career on London’s West End — the British Broadway — in shows like “Les Misérables,” “Avenue Q,” and “South Pacific,” Kempner took a detour to YouTube. He wrote and starred in his own condensed version of “Downton Abbey” featuring exaggerated caricatures of the series’ major figures. The videos went viral and he soon found himself appearing before sold-out crowds at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Born just south of London, Kempner, who is 28 years old, is the son of a horse-riding instructor mother, who had some brushes with England’s upper crust, and an amateur actor father, who often impersonated Groucho Marx. So, you might say he was born to take down “Downton.” Kempner emphasizes the fact that you don’t have to be a “Downton Abbey” fanatic to enjoy his show. In fact, in his Downton world, circumstances cause the grand house’s residents to engage with a broad range of outsiders from Russell Brand to the Kardashians. City Newspaper recently caught up with Kempner (by phone) at his London flat. The following is an edited version of our conversation.

City: How did you discover you were an impressionist?
You attended Guildford School of Acting. What did you get out of that?
Luke Kempner: When I was 10, 11 years old, I used to do silly voices all the time. It was like imitating computer games for my friends. When I got older and was at school I used to do the teachers and get in lots of trouble. When I was at drama school at 18, at the endof-year Christmas Carol Concert, I used to get up and do impressions of all the teachers in a 10-minute comedy set. It was a Nativity play and I’d have each teacher play a different part, but I’d do all the voices.
It was an amazing three years of my life. You’re surrounded by people who want to do the same thing. When you do it professionally, the aim is to make money doing what you love doing, but when you’re at drama school, you don’t have those pressures of paying the bills. You get to go and act and sing and dance every day and you’re learning to have the chops for when you get into the professional world.
What British comedy tradition do you come out of? Monty Python? Ricky Gervais?
Yes, I have a sort of formula. Some of them come immediately and I can hear them in my voice, like Carson. [In Carson’s voice]: I could hear that Carson was very low and down here. And: Someone like Daisy [in her voice], I could hear that she was quite high and had a bit of a lisp, so I knew that that wouldn’t take long. For some of the harder ones, I’ll record little snippets of them talking from the show and listen to them over and over again and try to do an impression. I’ll go to sleep and wake
Python was pretty big but my dad was a Groucho Marx impersonator, so I used to watch Marx Brothers films all the time. I used to know “Room Service” and “Duck Soup” by heart. Also things like “Fawlty Towers.” More recently, I’m into the American version of “The Office” series and I watch a lot of stand-ups, people like Bill Burr and Louis C.K. And I love Ricky Gervais.

always got a new man on the go — things like that. Sometimes you can just invent stuff. I sort of do Mr. Molesley as always trying to volunteer for things which he sort of does in the series.
Are you a fan of “Downton Abbey”?
A huge fan — I love it. Writing a show based on Downton, it means I have to watch so much of it. I’ve seen every episode 10 to 15 times and I never get bored. It can get complicated. How do you choose what to zero in on?
I try to find the things that everybody’s noticed. If someone seems to die at the end of every series, that’s something that everybody would notice. Or that Mary’s
Do you identify with any of them?
I think I’d probably be downstairs if I was there. I’d be a servant who keeps needling with Lord Grantham. How do you not only get into the heads but also into the bodies of the characters?
I try and find the mannerisms that can symbolize them. Like for Thomas, I’d always be rubbing my hands, which looks like he’s polishing a shoe. It’s just the thing that signifies Thomas. For Carson, I always have his hands behind his back. He isn’t always like that but if you picture Carson and I say his hands are behind his back people wouldn’t go, “That’s weird.” You’d think, “That’s about right.” continues on page 24

There are two separate parts to my career. I started out in musical theater but I’d always done the impressions so I put some videos on YouTube, and the third video I put on, the “Downton Abbey” one, got re-tweeted by [singer] Tom Jones and [comedian] Stephen Fry and overnight it got tens of thousands of views and that’s really what propelled me into doing it professionally. It took me in a different direction and a direction I really wanted to go in. I love musical theater but I’d always wanted to write my own stuff and I’d always wanted to make people laugh. YouTube gave me that chance.
I love the Dowager because she’s just got amazing one-liners. I love Carson because he’s so stuck in his ways, and I love his relationship with Mrs. Hughes because she’s just a little bit more knowledgeable about the world than Carson seems to be, and she just keeps him in check. I can’t believe it looks like they’re going to get together, which is all very exciting.

When you’re on stage and in the “Downton Abbey” zone, do you ever improvise?
A little bit, usually when things happen in Are there any characters you can’t do? the audience. Say the lights come up at the There are some I steer clear of. Some have wrong moment or someone goes to the story lines that are quite hard-hitting and toilet or someone’s coughing too much, I you can’t make something funny out of will be awarded the topwho teams might go, [in Mrs. Patmore’s Prizes voice] “Are that. Theto woman plays Edith is a you all right there, dear.including Do you want 2a tickets to Cirque wonderful actress du but Fringe! there’s not loads glass of water?” Other than that, it’s pretty I can grab from her. I make jokes about scripted just to keep it tight. Edith but I don’t have her as a character. What about a cellphone going off, a real anachronism?
Have you had any real-life contact with the actors?
I could hear Carson saying, “We don’t have the kind of thing at Downton; please turn it off.”
Elizabeth McGovern [Cora] came to see the show with her family. Jim Carter [Carson] sent me a nice message saying he’d seen my videos. Elizabeth said all the cast had seen my videos and thought they were all good fun. Thomas Howes who played William in the first two series came to see my show and sent me a nice email. It’s been really positive. My show is an homage to “Downton.”
How do you switch characters so fast?
It’s the toughest thing on the voice. [In a Billy Connelly voice] Billy Connolly’s very, very loud and rough on the voice.” But because I trained as a singer, I’ve got those muscles in my vocal chords that can take a lot. I enjoy doing characters from high to low: Daisy [high voice]: “Can I have a conversation with Mr. Carson? Is that right Mr. Carson?” Carson [low voice]: “Yes you can, Daisy.” I love doing 24 CITY SEPTEMBER 9-15, 2015

Ricky Gervais and Chef Ramsay. It’s because Downton’s in financial ruin and they have to go on TV shows to save Downton. They go on shows like “Jeopardy,” and Mr. Molesley goes on “Dancing With The Stars,” so we meet Bruno Tonioli and Len Goodman. Kim Kardashian’s in there at some point and so is Ian McKellen. Are there many remnants of a “Downton”like upper and lower class in England today?
It’s different. I’ve always thought there are two different types of rich people: people who are genuinely rich, and people who are rich but are always trying to prove how rich they are, which obviously means they’re not as rich as the people who are genuinely rich. I’ve done my show in some really wealthy people’s houses and it’s a whole different world that I really don’t know. But I’ve also done it in Gentleman’s Clubs in London where there might not be people as wealthy as that but they’re pretty wealthy.
How far do you want to take “Upside Downton”?
My dream would be to play Off-Broadway in a 200-300 seater in New York City. I’d love to live in the East Village. What is the most euphoric moment you’ve experienced on the stage?
The great thing about the American version of the show is the material is different than the British version, so the material is new to me. I really enjoy hearing jokes go down. It’s just those moments when you find a way of doing something that suddenly really works and, “Oh, my God, that’s it!” But the best moment for me was when I was doing “Les Miz” and it was the first time I was on as Marius. I was doing it at a 3,000-seat theater up in Scotland, there was a massive 18-piece orchestra, [producer] Cameron Mackintosh sat in the audience, [composer] Claude-Michel Schönberg was there as well. At the end of “One Day More” you pump your fist, and that moment was electric. I’ll never forget that moment. rochestercitynewspaper.com CITY 25

k P I It CIt ADAM LUBITOW 2015 RIT STUDENT HONORS SHOW
Don’t be intimidated by the five-hour chunk of time the 2015 RIT Student Honors Show takes up on the Fringe schedule. Presenting outstanding short films from both graduate and undergraduate students of the RIT Film and Animation program, it’s a long show, but absolutely worth it. Plus, since the films being screened are all shorts, you’re not required to stay for the entire duration. I was only able to stay for the first half of last year’s show, and I still managed to see some great films — one even made the shortlist for Oscar nominations.

“Unleashed! IMPROV Presents: Other Peoples’ Shows” has one of the simplest — yet brilliant — ideas for an improv show I’ve heard. Flipping through the Fringe guide book, the group will perform their interpretations of the shows they find, based only on their titles and descriptions. Ingenious. (Saturday, September 19, 7 p.m. TheatreROCS Stage. $10. Appropriate for ages 13 and older.)
Shakespeare’s plays are notoriously brutal, bloodthirsty affairs, but generally it takes some time to get to the good stuff. If you’re on a tight schedule, but have a taste for the macabre, “ShakesBLOOD” will present the Bard’s most gruesome scenes, squishing them all together into an orgy of blood, guts, and iambic pentameter. Even the audience isn’t safe: the front rows have a designated splash zone for anyone unafraid to get a little dirty. (Saturday, September 19, 8 p.m.; Saturday,
September 26, 8 p.m. Abilene. $10. Appropriate for ages 13 and older.)
“QUATERNION DRIFTERS, RIFF RAFT, AND A POD CALYPSO” I’m going to be honest, I’m mostly interested in “Quaternion Drifters, Riff Raft, and a Pod Calypso: A Comedic Jazz Tribute to Kurt Vonnegut” because the description left me baffled, and I respect that in any type of art. Listed in the comedy section, the show — from jazz duo The Quaternion Drifters — is an
interactive musical revue depicting the group’s time aboard a show boat constructed from plastic refuse and debris, where they travel to the mysterious “Caribbean Trapezoid,” and encounter a “tropical troupe of inquisitive dolphins.” Huh. (Saturday, September 19, 8:30 p.m. The Little Theatre 1. Free. All ages.)
“CINDERELLA - JUST WHAT I NEEDED”
There have been innumerable retellings of the story of Cinderella, but I can’t immediately recall any 1980’s-style musical adaptations performed by a singing mime. “Cinderella - Just What I Needed” — from the mind of Jimyn the Singing Mime — promises exactly that. I’m not entirely sure what a singing mime is exactly, but I’m willing to find out. (Thursday, September 24, 5 p.m.; Friday, September 25, 5 p.m. Java’s Cafe. Free. All ages.)
CASEY CARLSEN BIODANCE
Missy Pfohl Smith’s Rochester-based company BIODANCE returns for its fourth season at Fringe with “BIO/ DANCE & Social Justice,” a program that examines a diversity of inequality and justice in today’s world. Three of the pieces are from national guest artists; one is from Smith. Her piece is part of a program she has been executing in Rochester since the spring, aiming to initiate conversations with the community through free dance classes at a variety of venues including Monroe Community Hospital, the senior center at Community Place of Greater Rochester, Kinections, and Nu Movement. The pieces in this program will address racism, homelessness, sexual orientation, religious freedom, and sexism. Each of the four shows will differ slightly. “We’re looking at differences in general and how we don’t value being different,” she says. “The beauty of difference is so important in the world. Do we ever stop and just listen to each other? My piece is about being indifferent to all this injustice.” (Thursday, September 17, 6 p.m.; Tuesday, September 22, 8:30 p.m.; Wednesday, September 23, 7 p.m.; Saturday, September 26, 7 p.m. Geva Theatre Center. $12. Appropriate for ages 13 and older.)
from which springs Hyde, the evil alter-ego which is capable of despicable things. The part is played by several performers. “What makes the material challenging,” co-founder Darren Stevenson says, “is that Jekyll is not innocent. He creates Hyde so he can get away with his worst impulses.” Part of PUSH’s expertise on stage lies in digging out the underlying motivations of any drama. They stunned audiences with their in-depth characterization in “Dracula” several years ago. I’m confident they’ll do the same with “Jekyll & Hyde.” (Saturday, September 19, 12 p.m.; Friday, September 25, 8:30 p.m.; Saturday, September 26, 5 p.m. RAPA at the School of the Arts: Allen Main Stage. $18. All ages.)
“IT’S A SPACESHIP NOW”
Sounding something along the lines of a live theater version of the quirky indie film “Safety Not Guaranteed,” (only with a spaceship in place of a time machine), “It’s a Spaceship Now” is a one man show created and performed by Stuart Wilson, about a man who hopes to turn his life around by building a spaceship out of a discarded nuclear missile. Teleport me to Mars, Rochester Fringe. (Thursday, September 24, 9 p.m.; Friday, September 25, 9 p.m.; Saturday, September 26, 4:30 p.m. TheatreROCS Stage. $10. Appropriate for ages 13 and older.)
Performed as a series of dramatic story readings, “Rochester Rewritten” takes a look at what our city might look like had its history veered from its known course. The show offers audiences a glimpse into the “alternative pasts, presents, and futures of the Flower City we know and love.” Is that like Rochester fan fiction? Because I could totally get on board with that. (Thursday, September 17, 8 p.m. MuCCC. $10. Appropriate for ages 13 and older.)
New York City’s KineticArchitecture Dance Theatre performs three times during Fringe, and it’s a show I don’t want to miss. “No Safe Word” is choreographed by former Dominatrix Arrie Davidson and is billed as a chance for viewers to ponder fantasy free of judgement. For mature audiences only, this performance includes bondage, spanking, and flogging. Last year, the group presented “Diaghilesque,” a collection of Ballet Russe gems reimagined and presented as a combination of burlesque carnival and modern dance. This is a dance company that flaunts the status quo, and satisfyingly so. (Thursday, September 17, Friday, September 18, and Saturday, September 19, 9 p.m. Geva Theatre Center. $12. Appropriate for mature audiences only.)
PUSH PHYSICAL THEATRE
The local dance-theater company PUSH Physical Theatre wins over audiences time and time again with its combination of physical humor, astounding mime, and near faultless acrobatic feats. At Fringe, PUSH will present both tried and true pieces from its repertory plus a sneak peak of a new work-in-progress, “Jekyll & Hyde.” Based on the well-known Robert Louis Stevenson story, PUSH’s physical rendering of the tale delves deep into the psyche of Jekyll
Local choreographer Heather Roffe was one of 10 emerging choreographers from across the United States chosen to participate in a one-week intensive workshop with the prestigious choreographer Doug Varone in his CHIN program. The piece she developed in that program, “Twice Removed,” premiered at the 92nd Street Y in New York City earlier this month. This piece will be part of “Merged III.” Contemporary choreography James Hansen will also premiere a work in the show. “Merged I” and “II” were entertaining and accomplished shows which won favor with past Fringe audiences. Here’s looking to “Merged III.” (Thursday, September 17, 7:30 p.m.; Saturday, September 19, 4 p.m.; Sunday, September 20, 6:30 p.m. Geva Theatre Center. $12. All ages.)

Garth Fagan Dance performed to excellent reviews at Lincoln Center Out of Doors in New York City this month. Next month, the group will perform in its rehearsal studio on Chestnut Street as part of Fringe. If you are a devotee of Fagan — an icon in the contemporary dance world — and his incredibly talented and disciplined company, don’t miss this opportunity to see them in “Up Close and Personal.” Although the program is not yet finalized, Fagan’s newest piece “Dance For/With Geoffrey” (performed at Lincoln Center Out of Doors) will most likely be shown along with perennial audience favorites “Prelude (Discipline is Freedom),” “Oatka Trail,” “Thanks Forty(Five)-Fete/Joys,” and “Passion Distanced.” (Thursday, September 17, 7 p.m.; Friday, September 18, 9 p.m.; Saturday, September 19, 7 p.m.; Thursday,

“BILL EVANS DANCER/75!”
If you are a fan of tap, catch “Bill Evans Dancer/75! with Don Halquist” at Geva Theatre. The show should probably read “75?!” because Evans remains on top of his game. Named one of three favorite tap artists in a Dance Magazine readers’ poll, Evans can be counted on to present an outstanding and exacting performance. The show will include two iconic classic tap dance works, a duet with his partner Halquist and a humorous new performance art piece by award-winning choreographer Claire Porter. Another show that is perfect for all ages. (Saturday, September 26, 2 p.m. Geva Theatre Center. $12. All ages.) continues on page 26 rochestercitynewspaper.com CITY 27

DANIEL J. KUSHNER MATT WITTEN, PERCUSSION — “HIMMELS-TÜR”
Twentieth-century composer Karlheinz Stockhausen was a titan of the avant-garde, and his willingness to unabashedly explore sounds while pushing the boundaries of concert music is what makes his iconic compositions endure. Now Rochester music lovers will be able to hear his piece “Himmels-Tür” — “Heaven’s Door” — for the first time when percussionist Matt Witten performs the work on a 7-foot door. (Sunday, September 20, 8 p.m.; Thursday, September 24, 7 p.m. Lyric Theater: Main Stage. $10. All ages.)
Ever since brothers Josh (vocals and guitar) and Adam Netsky (drums) moved to New York City, local audiences have had far fewer opportunities to hear the Rochesterborn rock quintet perform. With music tinged in indie Americana and smothered in the sound of high-octane guitars, Maybird’s set is sure to be among the most danceable concerts of the Fringe Festival. (Sunday, September 20, 6:15 p.m. Gibbs Street Main Stage. Free. All ages.)
STICKS, STRINGS, AND PAINT
There are few events that say “fringe festival” more than multidisciplinary art performances. For the second consecutive year, Eastman School of Music alumni will team up with artist Lorraine Staunch to present contemporary classical music alongside live painting.

When Rochester activist Emily Good earned international attention after her 2011 arrest (for filming a cop during a traffic stop), not many Rochesterians realized that Good comes from deep socially-conscious stock.

His mother, Elizabeth, a middle class American farm mother of 10, volunteered to testify on behalf of Bob at his 1973 trail.

Rochester Contemporary worked with The Memorial Art Gallery and Robert Henry Contemporary to present “Brooklyn Bridge,” a show connecting Rochester audiences with the work of five New York-based emerging artists. “The works in the exhibition range from 9-foottall sculptures to fine, delicate drawings, yet are aesthetically connected and linked,” says Bleu Cease, RoCo executive director. The group of five participating artists includes Liz Jaff, whose paper sculpture composition, “Plomb,” plays on organic and architectural forms. The installation is a row of 10 identical objects of hand-cut and folded paper on a wire, showcasing Jaff’s self-proclaimed love of repetition and rhythm, as well as a sly sense of humor. The title can refer to a plumb bob — a lead weight is present at the bottom of each piece, and the compressed, pretty paper is in perfect alignment — but her chosen spelling is also polite term for unflushed matter, so the pretty sculpture also perhaps refers to a flurry of papier de toilette. Shoshana Dentz’s diverse collection of delicate drawings and paintings, “Within without,” are the result of on prolonged observation of a single transparent assemblage. Five planes of acetate
scotch-taped together provide endless interest to the artist, whose gentle renderings capture the fragile lines and surfaces as they shift under gravity, dust, and changing light. Some of Richard Garrison’s works-on-paper
employ obsessive chart making to colorcode the products in, for example, a WalMart flyer. One wedge of a wheel reveals the spectrum of hues offered in dress shirts for men (at $21.99), versus another wedge showing the variety in colors of jeans for misses (at $19.99). Garrison collects information from typically overlooked aspects of daily life in consumerist America, such as big box stores, drive-thru menus, packaging, and suburban parking lots. By reorganizing the information, he reveals the underlying palette and design of our banal commercial culture. In “Shopping Cart Inertia,” Garrison employed a drawing device installed in a grocery cart that records movements while shopping, resulting in large, clever abstractions of movements through space. In addition to a neat list of products at the bottom, the page is covered in scrawled lines and pooled ink, indicating places he paused. The other two artists in the show, Norm Paris and Derek Lerner, were present for an artist talk on Saturday, September 5. Of his three works in the show, Norm Paris’s two monumental pieces allude to non-existent sculptures of bygone athletes. Paris used his background in creating support containers for shipping artwork as a launching point for these works, which with only carefully arranged wood slats, bolts, and foam padding, create outlines for where a sculpture might fit.
In “Crate for Earnest Byner Sculpture,” Paris created space in the world for a sculpture of a beloved Cleveland Browns athlete that won’t be made. Highly interactive with the viewers’ imaginations, the work implies a larger-than-life volume for a monument to the artist’s own memories of growing up a sports fan in Cleveland. “I’ve built the absence of the monument,” Paris said in the Saturday artist talk following the opening on Friday, September 4. Paris created the 3D models on a computer, built the structures around it, and then removed the figure. He then recreated this structural framework in the physical world. A close examination of the work shows nuance within geometric simplicity — while a non-present foot may be essentialized, and only framed by simple parallel slats, the space for a curved arm is expressed with a series of slightly askew planks. Paris calls his work “sort of an absurdist exercise,” the answer to “what happens when you take a very utilitarian methodology and apply it to something temporal, something philosophical, something emotional.” he says. Derek Lerner’s highly detailed drawings
are the tense balance and elegant crossroads between geometric and organic forms. The largescale works are done entirely in blue ink — he uses ball point pens to achieve a debossed texture — on large sheets of paper, with plenty of blank, open space around his meandering structures. Without sketching beforehand, Lerner approaches each blank slate by considering both satellite images and microscopic realms. Clusters of forms and bisecting lines resemble highways, city blocks, lakes and rivers, crosshairs, and craters. They also resemble communities of pathogens or cancerous masses, veins, and cells. Both associations are intentional, a meditation on humanity’s destructive impact on the land. The work is fascinating whether viewed from across the room or up close. The forms are almost fractals, near perfect patterns in scales spiraling smaller and smaller. Even opaque sections of ink have translucence and texture. Lerner does not use washes to fill in large areas, so pen strokes flow and overlap like turbulence. His painstaking process mirrors the shift of nature and development over time. As tight as the drawings are, in most of them you can detect marks made by gestural sweeps of Lerner’s arm, fainter lines flowing away from the bustling centers hint at expansion, or conversely, at dissolution. He says these are made both at the beginning, to map out the general shapes, and afterward, to make the piece feel less finished. “The hardest part is deciding when it’s done,” he says. “I want a semi-unfinished look, to imply future growth.”

ART | “MYTHOLOGICAL TAXIDERMY SHOW”
COMEDY | ANDREW DICE CLAY
ART | CLOTHESLINE FESTIVAL
Brenda Killackey-Jones creates faux taxidermy sculptures of cryptozoological marvels. Her menagerie includes the mounted heads of dragons, werewolves, and yetis; their fierce faces made from fur, foam, fabric, resin, clay, glass, and wood. Through Halloween, you can check out her handiwork at Nox (302 North Goodman Street, in Village Gate). The small grouping of her creatures features fangs in slathering maws, reptilian eyes, rows of shimmering scales, and generally all the things that nightmares and fascination are made of.
Long before Jersey Shore, there was Andrew Dice Clay. Best known for his crass caricature of a macho Italian-American greaser, Clay earned the ire of women’s rights groups with his satirical, sexist stand-up and has historically been banned from TV and radio shows for his unrelentingly filthy mouth. In 1987, Rodney Dangerfield introduced this chain-smoking, swagger-filled, profane persona as “your typical boy next door.”
Almost like a kickoff party to the Rochester arts community’s 2015-16 season, the Clothesline Festival will fill the Memorial Art Gallery’s 14-acre ground with more than 400 artists. The festival is Rochester’s largest fine art and crafts festival, and will mark 58 years this weekend. Along with artists selling their works, Saturday will feature performances by Pandafan, Amy Montrois, Evan Meulemans, Mounafanyi Percussion and Dance, RLTC, Odasz Dance Theater, and Bombshell Belly Dance. Sunday will see performances by Neil Van Dorn Band, Jim E Leggs, Garth Fagan Dance School, Latinos De Corazon, and NYS Ballet. There will also be food trucks and beer and wine vendors, arts activities for kids, and museum admission included in the price of attending the festival.
And the art couldn’t have found a better set of alt-space walls to grace — if you’re looking for craft cocktails and comfort food playfully inspired by all forms of fandoms, Nox will satisfy. The show continues through Halloween. Nox’s hours are Monday through Friday, 4 p.m. to midnight, and Saturday through Sunday, 12 p.m. to midnight.

34 CITY SEPTEMBER 9-15, 2015
Clay disappeared so perfectly into this persona that some may have thought of him as a one-trick pony — many of his acting credits have him performing the same lighter tricks and toughguy bluster — but he proved his range reached further when he starred as Augie in Woody Allen’s 2013 “Blue Jasmine.” Clay will perform his act in Rochester this week at The Comedy Club (2235 Empire Boulevard, Webster). The show takes place Friday, September 11, and Saturday, September 12, at 7:30 p.m. and 10 p.m. each night. All Comedy Club shows are 21 and older. Tickets are $50, and can be purchased by emailing email@example.com or calling 671-9080.

Hearts of darkness “The Look of Silence”
2012 film, Oppenheimer allowed a few of the leaders of these death squads to re-enact their crimes, watching as they staged their recollections as horrific funhouse reflections of the Hollywood films that inspired them as young men: classic westerns, gangster films, and musicals. Ostensibly the idea was that, by allowing the men to step into the shoes of their victims, the experience might trigger a sense of compassion in them — though anyone who’s seen that film knows that that’s not what happened. The men still see themselves as the glorious heroes of their stories. When it was released, “The Act of Killing” received some criticism for giving a voice to the perpetrators of those atrocities while inadvertently sidelining the victims. Once again produced by the titans of the documentary form, Werner Herzog and Errol Morris, “The Look of Silence” (which isn’t a sequel, but rather a companion to that earlier film) rectifies some of those critiques by narrowing its focus to the family of one of the victims. We meet Adi Rukun, whose older brother Ramli was one of those killed. With Oppenheimer’s help, Adi sets out to confront the men who murdered his brother.

[ REVIEW ] BY ADAM LUBITOW
Greece Ridge 12
In 2012’s Oscar-nominated “The Act of Killing,” documentary filmmaker Joshua Oppenheimer gave audiences a troubling, indelible glimpse into the depths of man’s capacity for evil. In 1965 Indonesia, a military coup led to genocide, as anyone opposed to the new regime was accused of being a communist and immediately put to death. All told, more than one million people were slaughtered. Shockingly, many of those who participated in these massacres still hold power today. In his

Born two years after Ramli’s death, Adi seeks to understand and — we sense — attain some form of closure to the horrors his family endured. With no repercussions to the massacre, the perpetrators were free to go back to their lives; as we are repeatedly reminded, the families of the victims are literally neighbors with the men who brutally murdered their loved ones. So they’re not exactly hard to find. Oppenheimer follows along, accompanied by cinematographer Lars Skree, as Adi conducts his interviews. An ophthalmologist by trade, Adi questions the men while he administers their eye exams. Though some occasionally grow defensive — “your questions are too deep!” one angrily scolds — for the most part they’re all too happy to talk. A quiet man, Adi presents an implacable front, and his stony silence when listening to these stories tells us more than any words ever could. Adi’s calm exterior makes any nearly imperceptible hint at his inner state all the more moving. The courage it takes to not only calmly sit across from his brother’s killers but refrain from seeking any sort of revenge seems impossibly heroic. Adi’s eye exams provide a potent visual metaphor that Oppenheimer thankfully doesn’t push too hard throughout the film (though it is used as the image on the film’s poster). Adi helps the men see, and we cannot look away. Though many of the leaders of those death squads are now feeble old men, they still talk freely and openly about the horrific things they did all those years ago. You might assume that their talk might arise from a buried urge to unburden themselves, but

Three to tango [ REVIEW ] BY ADAM LUBITOW
the smile they wear while regaling anyone who’ll listen tells us that that’s not how they see it. The disconnect between their openness and the general public’s denial that these events ever took place can be baffling to witness. The narrative of the brave souls who fought to eradicate the communist scourge from the country is still put forth today, as we see in one schoolroom lesson being taught to the impressionable youth, including Adi’s son, who afterward parrots the information back to his father. Nevertheless, these atrocities were swept under the rug by everyone else, and Oppenheimer ruffles more than a few feathers for the way in which his persistent questioning churns up the past. Like “Act,” much of his Indonesian crew is credited anonymously, to protect them from possible retribution. Oppenheimer spent years conducting interviews with the leaders of the death squads, local gangsters hired by the state to carry out its dirty work. Throughout “The Look of Silence” we observe as Adi impassively watches video from several of these interviews, hearing the subjects bragging about the slaughters they performed, often in graphic detail. While “The Act of Killing” was largely a work of sustained horror, “Look” burrows into deeper emotional terrain. This film isn’t as immediately dramatic, but is no less powerful. The film builds to a pair of devastating conversations: one between Adi, one of the local gangsters, and the man’s daughter, the other with the family of the man physically responsible for killing Ramli. Combined, these scenes provide a painful sort of catharsis. This isn’t just great filmmaking, it’s essential viewing.
“A Walk in the Woods”
(PG-13), DIRECTED BY KEN LOACH OPENS FRIDAY AT THE LITTLE AND PITTSFORD

(R), DIRECTED BY KEN KWAPIS NOW PLAYING
Based on a true story, the charmingly old-fashioned period drama “Jimmy’s Hall” chronicles the life of amiable political agitator Jimmy Gralton (Barry Ward), whose individualist beliefs got him deported from Ireland in the 1930’s without benefit of a trial. Returning to his homeland after 10 years in America, Gralton reopens the community center he helped found, and the building becomes a social gathering place where the local populace can learn about art and culture; Jimmy and his friends teach classes in dance, music, poetry, and boxing. But these activities, and the freethinking ideologies they inspire, pit Gralton against the oppressive Roman Catholic Church, represented by Father Sheridan (Jim Norton). Prolific British director Ken Loach (“The Wind That Shakes the Barley”) paints in broad strokes (the film sometimes comes across as “Footloose” with Irish accents) and the narrative develops in overly conventional fashion. But the message — that people should be free to express themselves in whatever way they see fit — is as relevant as ever.

I understand the idea of mountain climbing; the draw of an incredible oncein-a-lifetime view, the desire to go where only a select few have gone before, and the admirable need to push oneself to the limits in order to see what’s possible. But the practicalities of the sport (and the unimaginably high risk of injury and death) lead me to believe the mountain climbers are simply a bunch of crazy people. The world-class climbers we follow in the whiteknuckle documentary, “Meru” (Conrad Anker, Jimmy Chin, and Renan Ozturk), do nothing to dissuade me of this belief. Throughout the course of the film (which follows two separate attempts by the group to reach the Shark’s Fin peak of Mount Meru in Northern India), all three live through incidents that by all accounts should have killed them. Yet after their near-death experiences, they each pick themselves up, dust themselves off (though in one of their cases, it’s not so much “dusting” as “learning how to walk again”) and keep right on climbing that mountain. Directed by Chin himself, alongside his wife and filmmaking partner Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi, “Meru” is thrilling viewing; the vertiginous camerawork depicting their various ascents has a grandeur that is made for the big screen. Author Jon Krakauer (“Into Thin Air”) serves as a terrific guide, providing explanations about some of the mechanics behind what we’re seeing and allowing us further insight into what’s going through these men’s minds as they risk death to achieve the seemingly impossible.
Crafted in the style of midcentury educational films, Stereo purports to be directed toward pupils of the (sadly) fictional Canadian Academy of Erotic Inquiry. We learn of an experiment carried out by Dr. Luther Stringfellow, who sought to cultivate telepathic abilities in his subjects by means of sexual exploration. But as with most works by Cronenberg, what is shown is secondary to how it is shown, and here, the young director draws upon his already considerable talents as a cinematographer, editor, and worldbuilder to explore the depths of the human psyche.

When Gregory Peck arrives as the new head of a mental institution, staff doctor Ingrid Bergman is attracted to him but begins to suspect that something is amiss. Hitchcock explores the unfathomable machinations of the human mind in this intriguing mystery, partially set in Rochester. Spellbound, Bergman’s first pairing with Hitchcock, is also notable for a surreal dream sequence conceived by Salvador Dalí, and a moody, Theremin-tinged score by Miklós Rózsa.

Adapted from travel writer Bill Bryson’s 1998 memoir, “A Walk in the Woods” follows Bryson (Robert Redford) as he teams up with his estranged buddy, Stephen Katz (Nick Nolte), to hike the 2,200-mile Appalachian Trail. Along the way, the pair reconnect, meet colorful characters, and learn some vaguely life-affirming lessons about nature and getting older. With talented actors like Redford and Nolte as the leads, “Walk” is never less than watchable, but the toothless screenplay (from Bill Holderman and Rick Kerb) too frequently leaves them stranded with nowhere to go as the story sticks only to the most well-worn of paths. Nolte looks like he belongs next to the definition of “grizzled” in the dictionary and sounds like he’s gargling with rusty nails, but the actor finds a cantankerous warmth in Katz – even though I never believed for a second he’d be capable of the physical exertion his character goes through in the film (while Bryson was in his late 40’s when he set off on his journey, Redford is 79 and Nolte is 74). Redford had been trying to get this film made for over a decade (he originally envisioned the project as a reunion for him and Paul Newman, though Newman’s 2008 death forced him to scuttle the movie for many years), and it’s easy to see what he saw in it: a humorous, heartfelt tale of environmentalism, all wrapped around a core of soft, gooey sentiment. With Newman, maybe the film could have been something special, but what we’re left with is a trip that’s barely worth taking.

Jump into History in Charlotte 83 River Street Throughout his career, 19th century daredevil Sam Patch jumped off bridges, buildings, ship masts, and waterfalls—including two leaps into Niagara Falls in 1829. That same year, Patch traveled to Rochester to dive into the Genesee River’s High Falls. After a less-than-lucrative successful jump, Patch dared a second plunge. He never surfaced. After his body was recovered from the Genesee, Sam Patch was laid to rest in the northwest corner of Charlotte Cemetery. Twenty-one years later, in 1850, the home at 83 River Street was built across the street from Charlotte Cemetery. Like Sam Patch, this home is from an era long-gone. Every room harbors vestiges of history waiting to be discovered by a preservation-minded buyer. Few home tours begin in the basement, but this home’s stone foundation, fruit cellar, and converted coal chute all harken back to Charlotte’s early days. Though long-ago enclosed by a mid-century addition to the home, the old Bilcostyle cellar doors are intact and sturdy. Alongside these remnants of the past, the home boasts a high efficiency furnace and a newer hot water heater. And plenty of dry storage space. The first floor maintains much of the home’s 19th century layout. Visitors are greeted by the original staircase to the left and a front parlor to the right. While the current owners utilize the front parlor as a third bedroom, the bright and spacious room could also serve as a family room. Like much of the first floor, the gumwood trim and molding in the front parlor remain intact and unpainted, including trim around large windows that stretch all the way to the baseboard. An original double doorway
leads into two adjoining rooms, one with an expansive bay window. A large kitchen with updated counters and appliances is located toward the back of the home. A sizable pantry, with a window to provide fresh sunlight, sits off the kitchen. The kitchen also offers access to an enclosed porch, a charming outdoor deck, and a fenced-in yard. Climbing the stairs to the second floor, one can imagine the worn patina of the hardwood stairs that are hidden under the carpet. The two upstairs bedrooms are large and bright. Each has generous closets and a modern ceiling fan. Additional storage in the attic can be accessed from the master bedroom. The second-floor bathroom has been updated with a wrap-around tub/shower and ceramic tiles. The original medicine cabinet remains—its wood trim unpainted. This charming home on River Street has stood witness to 165 years of history. Nestled on a quiet street with little through traffic, it is across the street from a historic cemetery and a public park. Other houses on the street are beautifully maintained and family-owned. A short walk away from the Genesee River trail or the burgeoning marina development—83 River Street is a gem waiting to be discovered by an inspired buyer. Priced at $81,900, this home is a bargain. To learn more about 83 River Street or to schedule a visit, contact Mark Melich at 585-719-3545 or MarkMelich@remax.net. by Lisa Feinstein Lisa is Vice President for Institutional Advancement at The Strong and an avid fan of historic architecture and neighborhoods.

Fun [ NEWS OF THE WEIRD ] BY CHUCK SHEPHERD
Muslim clerics complain of the commercialization of the holy city of Mecca during the annual hajj pilgrimages, but for Pope Francis’ visits to New York, Washington, D.C., and Philadelphia in mid-September, shameless street vendors and entrepreneurs already appear to be eclipsing Mecca’s experience. Merchants said they’d be selling, among other tacky items, mozzarella cheese statuettes of the pope ($20), a “pope toaster” to burnish Francis’ image on bread, a Philly-themed bobblehead associating the pope with the movie boxer Rocky, local beers Papal Pleasure and YOPO (You Only Pope Once) and T-shirts (“Yo Pontiff!” and “The Pope Is My Homeboy”). The Wall Street Journal quoted a Philadelphia archdiocese spokesman admitting that “you kind of have to take it in stride.”
Florida’s Best Courtroom
In May, suspect David Riffle, charged with trespassing (after shouting “religious proverbs” at patrons of the Hard Rock Casino in Hollywood, Florida), greeted Broward County judge John “Jay” Hurley at his bail hearing by inquiring, “How you doin’, a**hole?” Unfazed, Hurley responded, “I’m doing fine. How are you, sir?” After listening to Riffle on religion a bit longer, Hurley set bond at $100. In August, talking to Judge Hurley from jail via closed circuit TV, arrestee Susan Surrette, 54, “flashed” him as she tried to prove an alleged recent assault. The self-described “escort” and “porn star” (“Kayla Kupcakes”) had lifted her shirt to reveal bruises. (Her bond, also, was $100.)
— A Chinese woman identified only as Zeng was detained and stabilized at Beijing Capital International Airport in August after being found dazed on the floor at a boarding gate. She had attempted to fly with a bottle
of expensive cognac (Remy Martin XO Excellence) in her carry-on — a violation of Chinese regulations barring liquids over 100 ml (the cognac was 700 ml, selling for about $200 in the United States) and was presented with the ultimatum to give up the bottle or miss the flight. She decided to drink the contents on the spot (but was subsequently declared too drunk to board). — “And Another Thing, Dad”: Michael May, 44, was arrested in Lincoln County, Kentucky, in August after the Pilot Baptist Cemetery near Stanford reported that he had tried to dig up the grave of his dead father “in order to argue with him,” according to Lexington’s WLEX-TV. May told officers his dad had died about 30 years ago. (Alcohol was involved in the decision to dig.)
— Former Massachusetts Institute of Technology lecturer Joseph Gibbons was sentenced in July to a year in prison for robbing a New York City Capital One bank in December (while operating a video camera) in a heist that he had insisted all along was merely “performance art.” (He had been suspected in a similar robbery in Rhode Island in November.) His biography on the MIT website described him as “blurring the boundaries between fact and fiction, self and persona ... with a contradictory impulse to confabulate and dissimulate.” The Queens Museum in New York City has offered to screen the footage of the robbery as an art piece. — Artist Anish Kapoor initially denied that his 400 to 500 tons of stones, called “Dirty Corner,” were “problematic,” but later conceded that they might have “multiple interpretive possibilities.” The installation, which ran through the summer at France’s Palace of Versailles with five other large sculptures, was arranged in the form of a huge vulva, and represented, he said, “the vagina of a queen who is taking power.”
[ LAST WEEK’S SOLUTION ON PAGE 42 ]
[ LOVESCOPE ] BY EUGENIA LAST ARIES (March 21-April 19): A unique approach to love will attract partners who can make you feel passionate about life and your future. Don’t settle for someone waiting for you to entertain them. Pursue the person who is just as engaging as you, and you’ll have found your perfect match. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Problems will arise if you are unrealistic in your pursuit for love. Opt for a friendship and see where it leads rather than pursuing someone who is likely to lead you on until boredom sets in or someone offering more comes along. Choose partners based on common interests.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You’ll attract plenty of interest when it comes to love and romance, but you will also face conflicts if you aren’t careful. Avoid getting involved with someone one of your trusted friends is pursuing or a colleague who could easily end up costing you your reputation and your position. CANCER (June 21-July 22): If you don’t get out and do the things you enjoy, you won’t meet compatible partners. A pleasure trip, signing up for a dating service or going on a blind date one of your friends or relatives sets up will bring you one step closer to happiness.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You’ll be sought after this week if you engage in events that deal with intellectual matters that move you. Your ability to make a difference to a cause will bring plenty of backroom action. Look for the person who can stand beside you, not behind you. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Don’t wait around for someone to come to you. Engage in activities that make you feel good, and you will attract someone who is unique, creative and different from the partners you have had in the past. This one will have something worth holding on to.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You’ve got the moves, the looks and the intelligence to attract any number of partners. Look for someone who can offer you diversity, support and the comfort you need to feel happy and content in your surroundings, and it will change your life forever. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Pushy, possessive persistence will not work this time around. Back off and let potential partners come to you. Your disinterest will be a greater turn-on than coming on too strong. Do your own thing, and you’ll lure in someone who is fascinating and a worthwhile match.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You’ll be caught in a war zone when it comes to love. Honesty will be necessary, and so will fidelity. If you wander off or pay attention to too many, you will be classed as a player or tease instead of a candidate for everlasting love. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You’ll have the dressings, reputation and clout that will attract plenty of interest, but choosing someone who loves you for who you are and not what you have will be difficult. Bide your time, and keep the dates you arrange simple and cheap.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Let your emotions lead. Speak from the heart, and give your all. Don’t be afraid to share your dreams and make plans that include the person you most want to spend your time with. Being upfront will close the gap between getting together for fun and planning a future. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Temptation will throw you offcourse when it comes to love. Don’t head down a path that is likely to end in a one-night stand. Stick to the person offering loyalty and longevity. A fling will only lead to sorrow, a poor reputation and loss of self-respect.
