‘The Best’ accessibility
On a simplistic level, candidates running for election supply rudimentary information for voters so they can make an educated decision and choose the person best suited for the job. If I cannot gain access to what a candidate is selling, I’m not going to buy it. The same holds true with The Best of Rochester primary ballot selection. On the surface, The Best of Rochester is a fun way to support local businesses by telling its readers that these businesses were voted The Best by consumers visiting those establishments. It gives the impression that the winners are the best Rochester has to offer. I look forward to filling out the primary ballot for the choice of The Best of Rochester. I enjoy supporting city vendors. Unfortunately, some vendors will not be getting my vote – not because they are not a great music venue, or do not have the best hamburgers, or do not provide trendy boutique clothing. It is because they are not wheelchair accessible and I’m a wheelchair user. I cannot access their establishment. There have been several inaccessible city businesses that I have not been able to access this summer. One offers a service I won in a raffle. I ended up giving the certificate to an able-bodied friend. The next two, a phenomenal music venue and a brand-new boutique, operate in locations that were “grandfathered in.” In the case of the music venue, I got my money back for the ticket I had purchased. Although I did purchase earrings from the City
boutique, it was outside the store on the sidewalk. The boutique owner tried her best to accommodate me, but I think Rochester can do better. Surely, the City of Rochester can provide reasonably accessible options to new businesses and their potential customers who use wheelchairs. In the meantime, it would be fantastic if the final Best of ballot consisted of locations that wheelchair users can actually visit. Most inaccessible city businesses do not even supply a temporary or portable ramp or an entrance without steps, an accessible path, and a doorway wide enough for a wheelchair user to enter. Shouldn’t The Best of Rochester final selection reflect the businesses that go the extra mile to provide service to all customers inside the store? The winners should reflect businesses that actually act upon the spirit of the Americans with Disabilities Act, the civil rights act that was enacted in 1990 to prevent discrimination against persons with disabilities who want to access public accommodations and commercial facilities. And by extension, the City of Rochester should assist these small businesses to become the very best that Rochester should be offering. TERESA CARROLL, ROCHESTER
Should we, could we ban guns?
Regarding “Why Not Ban Guns?” (Urban Journal): We tried banning alcohol, and that led to the rise of the crime lords and the murder of innocent citizens. The “war” on drugs, terror, and poverty led to government programs that haven’t made us safer or reduced drug use or its terrible consequences. And we still have people in poverty 40 years after the “Great Society” vision of President Johnson. Both Chicago and New York City have gun bans that prevent law-abiding citizens from possessing
SEPTEMBER 12-18, 2012
that firearm. Neither city has effectively reduced the violence when a determined person wants a gun. Shutting down gun shops, gun shows, and firearm manufacturers will only repeat the failures of prohibition. Wishing for a utopian society where guns don’t exist except in the hands of the police or military is a waste of a time. Not all police or the military are squeaky clean. Look at all the abuse cases in the newspapers or on TV. Look at the reports of the Mexican police and military selling their USsupplied firearms to drug lords and terrorist gangs. Maybe what’s needed is a return to some age-old morals. Maybe society has to change and insist that we don’t lie, cheat, steal, or kill our neighbors. Maybe we should crack down on the corrupt politicians, bankers, lawyers, and business “elite.” Maybe society has to set a better example first. That’s a lot of work, and it’s much easier to sit in front of the TV, computer, or Twitter and worry who’s been bounced from the dancing contest or the loser house. Come to think of it, maybe that’s what “they” want. JEFF SLOWIK, FAIRPORT
Why not just ban all guns altogether? Let me cite a few reasons. 1) Why not ban free speech so that all those people who have terrible ideas would no longer be heard? What constitutes a terrible idea? How about going against the Constitution? The Second Amendment does talk about the need for a militia to resist the worst of government. But read exact wording says “the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.” Seems as if the framers were being pretty specific, not about the type of guns (like muskets versus semiautomatics) but about the rights of common people to put food on their table or protect themselves from any threat.
2) Here’s a great analogy to Ms. Towler’s proposed gun ban: let’s make drugs illegal. Then there wouldn’t be any drugs available either, right? Forget about those pesky cartels in Mexico. They’d never sell drugs here in this country. The “War on Drugs” is over 100 years old. Anyone see an imminent victory? 3) New York City has the toughest gun laws in the nation, followed by New York State. But who obeys laws? Only law-abiding citizens. Those daily city shootings would continue because most of the people killing each other are doing so with illegal guns. Maybe after 100 years of a total ban, there would be no illegal guns. I’d have more faith in finding the tooth fairy or some unicorns or even the treasure of the Sierra Madre. 4) Hunters and targetshooting sportsmen and women would have to find some other hobby? New York State makes a lot of money from selling hunting licenses and from assorted taxes on ammo, equipment, etc. A good deal of that money goes to pay for conservation-related programs. “Are those pleasures worth the cost of the repeated carnage - on streets, in homes, in offices, by mentally stable and mentally ill alike?” What if all law-abiding sportsmen surrendered their guns and target shooting was no longer allowed yet the carnage continued? (See Point 2 or 3.) 5) Rational discussions about gun bans generally miss the target. If someone has the mindset to do damage to others, there’s little that can stop them. Instead of a gun, a car could certainly take out a crowd of people. Perhaps a law like the one that compels health-care providers to report child abuse could work in the mental-health arena. But I think right most psychiatrists and NP’s are likely reporting to law enforcement if someone says they plan to harm themselves or others. Until someone does say just that, there’s not much recourse.
6) This is a vexing problem. As a legal, lawabiding long gun owner, I’m sickened whenever one of these individuals uses a gun in pursuit of their demons. However, suggesting more feel-good laws that do nothing is a waste of time. This may be akin to asking “which came first, the chicken or the egg?” Around and around we go and never get anywhere close to the tail we so vigorously chase. BOB FISCHL, HONEOYE FALLS
Wasn’t the movie theater shooting a “gun free zone”? How did taking guns away from the law-abiding people make them safer? And having the police protect us worked out so well in New York City, where all nine bystanders shot were shot by police. Do we take away their guns too? And will Bloomberg give up his armed security guards? Or are some people more deserving of protection than others? LANCER

Joe Biden’s ‘chains’ comment
On a reader’s web comment on a News Blog post: Bart speaks baloney. Biden spoke the truth when he said that getting rid of Obama’s health-care reform would “put you back in chains” – as he spelled out, the old chains of health-insurance companies refusing claims, leaving millions more unable to afford health care. Of the four top candidates, Biden’s the only one who tells the whole truth. GIL FRENCH, ROCHESTER

One nation indivisible? For diehard Republicans and Democrats, the political conventions probably provided a lot of excitement. But I’m left with a real sense of unease, and not just about the economy or the outcome of the November election. I’m really, really worried about where we’re headed for the foreseeable future – and whether we can manage to govern ourselves. Watching both conventions, you couldn’t help feeling that you were looking at people from two different countries. The difference – in age, in ethnicity, in philosophy – was stark. And unfortunately, the conventions were simply a reflection of America: in a very real sense, we’re living in two different universes. This isn’t new, obviously. There were strong divisions at the nation’s founding. And we fought a civil war over our divisions. Nor is this the only time that deep divisions have been strengthened – and radicalized – by highly partisan, often loopy media. Right now, though, I’m not finding much solace in history. In our better moments, we have come together – enough of us that government could get things done, anyway. I don’t see that happening any time soon. As I mentioned in a blog last week, you can find some depressing insight into all this in Ryan Lizza’s “The Obama Memos: The Making of a Post-PostPartisan Presidency,” a New Yorker article from late January. “Congress is polarized largely because Americans live in communities of likeminded people who elect more ideological representatives,” Lizza wrote. “Obama’s rhetoric about a nation of common purpose and values no longer fits this country: there really is a red America and a blue America.” And, Lizza said: “Polarization also has affected the two parties differently. The Republican Party has drifted much farther to the right than the Democratic Party has drifted to the left.” The divisions we’re seeing in Washington, then, aren’t just a political game. As Ramesh Ponnuru noted on a recent Morning Edition on NPR, there are “deep-seated differences between the parties on a lot of the issues.” Neither party, Ponnuru warned, seems inclined to set aside those differences. If Obama wins, he’ll feel that he has a mandate for his policies. And Democrats may assume that Republicans will start cooperating after a Romney loss because

In our better moments in history, we have come together. I don’t see that happening any time soon.” they think their obstruction has been based on politics, not principle. But, said Ponnuru, they’re wrong. The Republicans he talks to, he said, believe what they say, deeply. If Romney loses, Ponnuru predicted, Republicans will feel it was because he was too moderate. And if they control one or both house of Congress, they’ll believe just as strongly as Obama that they have a mandate to follow through on what they’ve said. So unless one party wins both the White House and strong control of Congress, we’re in for more gridlock. We’re still nearly two months away from the election. At the conventions, both parties were preaching to the choir. Maybe the debates will influence voters, but there seem very few voters willing to be influenced. Most of us decided long ago which choir we’re in. So much is at stake in this election. If Republicans win big enough to do what they say they’ll do, they’ll approach the economy in a vastly different way than Democrats will. They’ll cut taxes on the wealthy and corporations, ramp up defense spending, weaken environmental regulations, ignore the signs of climate change, get rid of the Affordable Care Act, weaken Medicaid, start privatizing Medicare, appoint more Supreme Court Justices like Antonin Scalia, worsen our relationship with China, embrace more military interventions abroad, and begin the process of Constitutional Amendments banning abortion and limiting marriage to heterosexual couples. And if observers like Ramesh Ponnuru and Ryan Lizza are correct, a Republican president and a Republican Congress will be doing exactly what many Americans want them to do. We have a lot more challenges than the divisions in Washington.

Pol’s son charged
William Reilich Jr., son of Monroe County Republican Committee chair Bill Reilich, was charged with unemployment fraud, reported the Democrat and Chronicle. Reilich Jr. is accused of collecting $7,700 worth of unemployment benefits while working for Monroe County. In a statement, Bill Reilich said he’s disappointed in his son’s actions, but he’ll support his son’s decision to return to gambling addiction treatment. He also said that his son has made full restitution.
More Kodak cuts
Eastman Kodak will lay off 1,000 employees before the end of 2012 on top of the 2,700 employees the company has already laid off this year, says a report by the Wall Street Journal. The job cuts are expected to save the company $330 million, and some experts say more cuts are likely to follow. The company is also replacing CFO Antoinette McCorvey with Rebecca Roof, director of the company handling the Kodak bankruptcy restructuring.

Weak jobs report
The Department of Labor issued a sobering jobs report for August. The nation’s economy added only 96,000 jobs last month, down from the 141,000 added in July. Though unemployment fell slightly from 8.3 to 8.1 percent last month, economists say the dip is due to the growing number of Americans who have stopped looking for work.

Campaign mystery mail Some voters in the 55th State Senate District have received campaign mailers ripping Democratic candidate Ted O’Brien for failing to take ethics training required as a member of the Monroe County Legislature. The mailers are factually wrong. O’Brien did take the training and he’s got the documentation to prove it. But the mailings highlight a bigger issue beyond misstatements and garden-variety campaign mudslinging: they exploit flaws in New York State’s campaign finance laws that allow groups and individuals to attack candidates while the attackers remain anonymous.
City of Rochester employees driving city-owned vehicles committed at least 119 red-light violations over the last 18 months, reported the Democrat and Chronicle. The violators may be disciplined, the report says, but because of union contracts, they will not have to pay the customary fine.

In this case, the mailings say that they were paid for by an entity called Common Sense. But the Virginia address on the mailings belongs to CT Corporation, a firm that serves as a registered agent for businesses. The Common Sense website, www.commonsenseprinciples.com, says nothing about who’s behind the organization, just that it’s a small-government group inspired by Thomas Paine’s “Common Sense” pamphlet. The site appears to be devoted to attacking a handful of Democratic candidates for New York State Senate.
“Real organizations tell you who they are,” says Susan Lerner, executive director of Common Cause New York. And Common Sense probably won’t have to report its donors because it seems to be sticking to issue ads, which don’t directly encourage viewers to vote for or against a specific candidate. “The unknown organization that is behind this ad doesn’t have to tell the public anything,” Lerner says.

Author Noah Andre Trudeau says that in the rush to get to “the big story” — the assassination — writers and historians tend to gloss over the crucial last few weeks of Lincoln’s life. Trudeau is trying to fill in that gap for his upcoming book and, he says, Rochester residents might be able to help.
HISTORY | BY CHRISTINE CARRIE FIEN
DEVELOPMENT | BY CHRISTINE CARRIE FIEN
Looking for Lincoln It’s hard to imagine that any part of President Abraham Lincoln’s life remains unexamined. If he’s not the most writtenabout president, the Great Emancipator certainly must be high on the list. But Noah Andre Trudeau, author of several books about the Civil War, says that in the rush to get to “the big story” — the assassination — writers and historians tend to give short shrift to the crucial last few weeks of Lincoln’s life. Trudeau is trying to fill in that gap in his upcoming book and, he says, Rochester residents might be able to help. At the invitation of General Ulysses S. Grant, Lincoln left Washington to visit City Point, Virginia — now Hopewell — on March 23, 1865. City Point was the Union Army’s headquarters during the Siege of Petersburg. Lincoln returned to Washington on April 9, and was shot on April 14, 1865. The time at City Point is significant, Trudeau says, because the Civil War was ending and Lincoln’s role as president was undergoing a fundamental shift. “I think, in a way, we’ve missed one of the greatest stories of his presidency,” Trudeau says. “He transformed himself from a war president to a Reconstruction

president, and I think the essential change happens during the visit. I think when he comes back to Washington, he’s not the same president he was when he left.” You know who. FILE PHOTO How does Rochester fit in? The 1st New York Light Artillery Regiment, Battery L, which was organized in Rochester, was in Petersburg while Lincoln was at nearby City Point. In fact, Rochester resident Major George Breck, who was in charge of the regiment, spotted Lincoln on a train as Breck made his way back to Petersburg from leave. Trudeau says he believes there’s more information about Lincoln’s activities from March 23 to April 9 buried in family collections, maybe in the form of diaries or letters. If you have information to share with Trudeau, go to www.lincoln1865.com
Some City Council members are concerned that the proposal to sell the Sibley building to an entity to be formed by Winn Development might be too similar to the deal that has trapped the building and the city in limbo for years. | Mayor Tom Richards has announced an agreement to sell the Sibley building for $5 million to the company for retail, offices, and housing. | But at a meeting last week, Council members — who must sign off on the deal — said the proposal is overly complex and seems to give too much discretion to the mayor. The deal would allow the mayor to adjust the interest rate and “other terms and conditions” of an outstanding $3.1-million loan that Winn has agreed to take responsibility for. | That the building would be sold to a company formed by Winn — and not Winn itself — raised warning signs for some Council members. | The building is currently owned by Rochwil Associates, a limited liability corporation that owes the city more than $20 million, but has no resources to pay that debt, Richards says. | Council members said they want to make sure the city isn’t walking into a similar situation if the Winn entity can’t make a go of the building.

Truancy tests RCSD’s resolve The Rochester school district kicked off the new school year with what officials say is a serious crackdown on attendance and truancy. The new effort, which is loosely based on a program used successfully in other New York school districts, will involve the broader community. Officials say that poor attendance and high truancy rates are at least partly to blame for the Rochester district’s consistently low graduation rate, and there have been many unsuccessful efforts over the years to address these issues. Many students miss so much instruction that they cannot perform at grade level in core subjects without remedial help. But solving the problems has been extremely difficult, and efforts are often complicated by the district’s shoddy recordkeeping. Some schools have students on the rolls who no longer live within the district. And officials recently discovered that a sophisticated attendance software program automatically records students as present, unless teachers manually change the status. Mayor Tom Richards says getting accurate attendance numbers is crucial to the credibility of the district’s new truancy program. “We’re never going to get people to help us and participate if we’re not credible,” he says. Truancy is generally defined as 20 or more
unexcused or unexplained absences in a school year. Anita Murphy, the Rochester district’s deputy superintendent, says that on any given day, about 3,000 students or 10 percent of the district’s nearly 30,000 students may be absent. And she says that as many as 50 percent of students may be truant over the course of a school year, meaning they may have missed at least 20 days for unexplained reasons. The new program is loosely based on what district officials call the “Yonkers Model,” a comprehensive approach to chronic truancy designed by Karl Bertrand, president of Program Design and Development, a consulting firm to public schools and municipalities. Rochester officials met with Bertrand, who provided them with a report showing dramatic results in the Yonkers and Mt. Vernon school systems. The Yonkers Model assumes that school districts cannot solve truancy problems on their own, and that city and county services are integral to the approach. Before launching the Rochester program, school officials met with social City

service providers, as well as county and city officials, says Superintendent Bolgen Vargas. Rochester’s new program initially focuses on grades K to 3 to give officials time to develop it, and to quickly correct any problems that arise. The first step is to implement careful and consistent attendancetaking, Murphy says. Specific steps will be taken when students miss school. For instance, after a student misses three consecutive days, a letter will go home to his or her parents.

repudiated the mailings and said that he and his campaign had nothing to do with them. Neither he nor his campaign have any connection to the Common Sense group, Hanna said. Common Sense was also active in 2010 when it targeted six Democratic candidates for State Senate. The Watertown Daily Times reported on a flier that Common Sense mailed out and said the flier’s targets mirrored those of the State Senate Republican Campaign Committee. That piece also took the form of an issue ad, and the state’s campaign finance database shows no filings from Common Sense. State ethics reform legislation enacted in 2011 was supposed to address the issue-ad loophole. It required the Board of Elections to draft new regulations that included reporting requirements for any person or organization funding an issue ad. Those regulations still haven’t been finalized and even if they were, they’d be too late to do any good this year, says Bill Mahoney, research coordinator for New York Public Interest Research Group. And Lerner says that the draft regulations as currently written are still too weak and would continue to exempt issue ads.

I stopped mid-sentence, absorbed by one of those across-a-crowded-room moments. My friend Jen saw where my attention was now directed, and she was a little intrigued as well. Our eyes followed this super-sexy heap of buttermilk fried chicken, fluffy whipped potatoes, and an ethereal biscuit ($15.95) as it made its way to one lucky diner perched at the big bar anchoring the first floor of TRATA, also known as (and an acronym for) The Restaurant At The Armory. The patron in question noticed our slack jaws and even kindly offered us a taste, but we demurred, content with our generous portion of juicy chicken fingers ($7.95) served with whole-grain honey mustard. But as I took a refreshing pull off of my fruity Lambic Bellini ($5.50), I silently plotted my next visit. Perhaps one of the more inspired repurposings of a local structure, TRATA occupies three floors of the former Culver Road Armory, now a mixed-use space that also houses an art gallery along with professional offices. It’s the latest venture from restaurateur Charlie Fitzsimmons, who shuffled talent like chef Aaron Bolton and general manager Allie Greco from his highend Black & Blue eateries over to TRATA, which Greco describes as “casual upscale.” Surprisingly elegant despite The Armory’s utilitarian roots, TRATA incorporates the exposed brick and rustic woods into its multilevel layout. The restaurant can seat more than 300 people, and features a cozy second-floor lounge area, a soon-to-open rooftop beer
garden, and expansive windows that overlook Cobbs Hill Park. And the food? “Contemporary American,” says Greco. “Anyone can find something they like.” TRATA serves up its take on timeless comforts like pigs in a blanket ($6.95) and loaded fries ($11.95) and deliciously towering burgers done six different ways ($11.95). But our country’s proverbial melting pot is especially evident in inventive appetizers like a quesadilla that fills housemade tortillas with duck confit, gruyere, dried cranberries, and sage mascarpone ($9.95). A couple of soups and a handful of salads round out the small plates; I was totally smitten with a vivid green Brussels sprouts salad, which tosses the poached-then-chilled leaves with sweet cherry tomatoes, smoky bacon, crispy truffled shallots, and an asiago-lemon vinaigrette ($7.95). The entrées offer playful twists on classic tastes as well; a thick-cut yellow-fin tuna steak is seared with black and pink peppercorns and bedded down on “an old-school noodle casserole” ($24.95), while twin 4 oz. beef tenderloins, a mushroom and puff pastry napoleon, and sherry-porcini cream evoke a deconstructed Wellington ($18.95). The wine and beer lists are both extensive and informative (and that 4 oz. draft is a smart option), while the nicely priced craft-cocktail menu incorporates top-shelf liquors, beers, housemade mixers, and fresh herbs and fruits. And by the way, I was able to get back for that fried chicken. It was worth waiting for. TRATA is located at 145 Culver Road. It is open Sunday-Thursday 11 a.m.-midnight; Friday-

time t took dancers jumping off buildings for people to finally “get” the magnitude of the inaugural First Niagara Rochester Film Festival. “Another festival?” is a common refrain in Rochester. It can be hard to get excited about a new project when the area is already so flush with celebrations of everything from Turkish culture and lumberjacks to the environment and local restaurants (all festivals taking place within the current week). But at the February press conference officially announcing the Rochester Fringe Festival all it took was footage of Bandaloop, a world-renowned aerial dance troupe that performs vertical routines while suspended on the sides of buildings, for people to realize that Fringe was not just “another festival” — it has the makings to be a very big deal. Dancers, dangling from ropes, swinging, leaping, twirling against a bright blue sky: that’s not something Rochester has ever seen before. The group is one of the headliners of the premier edition of the Fringe, and will twice perform excerpts from its piece “Bound(less)” on the side of the 21-story One HSBC Plaza. And it’s only one of the dozens of acts that will be taking over downtown as the Rochester Fringe Festival makes its debut in more than 20 venues from Wednesday, September 19, through Sunday, September 23. The event will showcase a mix of local and national performers putting on 180-plus shows over five days, covering visual art, theater, dance, comedy, magic shows, film, music, and family-friendly fare. Organizers have been working on the festival for nearly four years, and the project is backed by a Who’s Who of Rochester’s cultural elite. The road to the festival hasn’t always been easy to navigate, and the festival has its challenges. But Fringe is finally here, and Rochester better get ready. 10 City SEPTEMBER 12-18, 2012

If flying dancers aren’t enough reason to
take Rochester Fringe seriously, consider the festival’s pedigree. It was initially the brainchild of University of Rochester President Joel Seligman, who in 2008 started having informal meetings with various cultural groups, politicians, businesses, and other potential
stakeholders for what was then being referred to as a summer arts festival to take place in downtown Rochester. Eventually the festival became its own nonprofit entity, and its board of directors now includes Mark Cuddy of Geva Theatre Center, Grant Holcomb of the Memorial Art Gallery, Ruby Lockhart of
Garth Fagan Dance, and Heidi Zimmer-Meyer of the Rochester Downtown Development Corporation, as well as representatives from George Eastman House, RIT, Eastman School of Music, and other organizations. In 2009, Erica Fee — a UR graduate who carved out a successful theater career acting, directing, and producing in London and at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival — was brought onto the project, and eventually named festival producer. Along with board chair Justin Vigdor, Fee is widely regarded as the major force behind making Rochester Fringe a reality. (“The key reason we have a Fringe festival is Erica,” says UR’s Seligman.) One of the challenges facing the Rochester Fringe Festival is explaining to audiences exactly what “Fringe” means. When you hear Greek Festival, you know you’re getting “Opa!” and spanakopita. When you think about Jazz Festival, at the very least you know you’re going to get a range of music. But Fringe? Not so obvious. The allure of a Fringe festival can be best explained by Paul Burgett, vice president of the University of Rochester and a member of the Rochester Fringe Festival board. Two years ago, as he and his wife were touring the South Pacific, they had a stop in Adelaide, Australia, home to Adelaide Fringe, the second-largest Fringe festival in the world. (There are more than 200 Fringe festivals worldwide; the first — and still largest — is the Edinburgh Fringe in Scotland, founded in 1947.) When Burgett arrived in Adelaide, the festival “was in full blossom,” he says, “and I was absolutely captivated by what was going on. The streets were alive with all kinds of performers — jugglers, musicians, actors, performers, magicians. People on 15-foot unicycles, art shows in galleries along the mall. We were there for four to five days, and I was just mesmerized, awestruck by all the activity. The streets were teeming with happy people, and the city was full of energy, excitement, and surprises.” More specifically, Festival Producer Fee explains that Fringe means, “a multidisciplinary,
multiday festival that is not curated by a centralized artistic board,” she says. After Rochester Fringe established itself as a nonprofit organization, it reached out to a variety of arts and cultural organizations and community leaders. It signed up more than 20 venues, ranging from traditional performance spaces like Geva Theatre Center and Blackfriars Theatre to smaller stages like The Little Café and Writers & Books and quirkier spaces like Black Radish Studio and Java’s. The participating venues booked their acts themselves, based on artist submissions that came in through the Fringe Festival’s website this spring. The festival’s participatory aspect was perhaps
lost on Rochester at first — the idea that area performers could actually have their work be part of this enterprise. But eventually, people got it, and Fee says the website was flooded with submissions — she was still getting pitches six weeks out from the festival — with more than 180 fully fledged acts looking to get booked. That “far exceeded” the organizers’ expectations for Year 1, Fee says. Those submissions varied greatly. Some were new shows by local artists, like Method Machine’s play “The Gay Fiancée.” Others were edgy, existing works looking for a wider audience, like Kimberly Niles’ “The Isle of Dogs.” Some of the submissions came from out-of-towners, like Chicago-based musical comedian Matt Griffo or the Fringe circuit favorite, “The Event.” And taking advantage of the area’s rich academic scene, many of the productions are original collaborations between local college departments and arts groups, such as the intriguing “Astro Dance” by choreographer Thomas Warfield, RIT/NTID Dance Company, and the Thomas Golisano College of Computing and Information Sciences. [See the article on page 19 for City Newspaper’s critics’ picks for the best bets at the Fringe Festival.] After the submissions arrived at the festival, they were routed to the individual venues at which the artists hoped to perform. Kris Ashley, who handled the Fringe booking for Rochester Area Performing Arts on East Main Street, says that RAPA’s East End Theatre received around 75 submissions — second only to Geva, she says. For her, the process of deciding what made it into their Fringe offerings included reading the applications, going through artist websites or videos, and, in several dozen cases, giving the artists a tour of RAPA’s recently overhauled theater spaces. Ashley says her primary concern was the quality of the acts, and whether they fit the RAPA mission, which includes family-friendly and educational offerings. The final schedule at
University of Rochester President Joel Seligman got the Fringe Festival ball rolling back in 2008. “What attracted me more than anything was a very strong belief that great cities need great art,” he says. file PHOTO
RAPA includes a variety of dance pieces, some theater, and even a night of very adult comedy. The festival’s programming process has not
been without its detractors. Certain venues not directly involved in the festival have organized their own non-Fringe “fringe” series of events. (Ironically, that’s how the Edinburgh Fringe Festival itself began.) Some artists objected to having to pay to participate in the festival, and others complained that the programming features some out-of-town artists, or isn’t “fringe” enough. “A Fringe festival doesn’t mean that you’re on the fringes of society,” Fee says. “You don’t have to be in the fringes of society or the fringes of art to participate in a Fringe festival. Sure, you can do edgy work. You can also do a revival of a Shakespeare play. One of the most successful shows of the Edinburgh Fringe was called ‘Shakespeare for Breakfast.’ It’s at 9:30 a.m., it’s improv, most of the audience is over 70 years old. But I’ll tell you right now, you show up and you can hardly get a seat.” As for artists having to pay to be involved, “Fringe festivals by nature all have registration fees,” Fee says. “You perform at the Toronto Fringe Festival, you have a $750 registration fee. I think that our registration fee of $100 to $150 is a very, very good bargain. And the fact that we’re taking such a low percentage of
ticket sales — 10 percent of them come back to us. With New Orleans Fringe, I think it’s a 50-50 split. Most Fringe fests take far over 10 percent, and if they don’t take that, they have a huge registration fee upfront. We’ve tried to keep that super competitive.” Regarding the criticism that the festival includes artists from outside Rochester: “I’m not going to pander to a xenophobic approach to the arts,” Fee says. “The venues have programmed themselves. The venues have decided what they want in their own venues. If they want a group coming in from San Francisco, and that group wants to come to Rochester to perform, more power to them.” “The majority of our acts are from Western New York,” says Fee. “This is absolutely a reflection of our community. But I think we are allowed to have outsiders come into the community and succeed. I think it creates a real cross-pollination of ideas, too. I think it’s fantastic for Rochester-based artists to work alongside artists from other communities. Not only do they learn from the artists, the artists from other communities learn from Rochester. We want a festival that is exciting, entertaining, enthralling. And we don’t care where they come from in the end.”
whole array of activities. The other festivals in town offer what they offer — usually a specific offering. Fringe Festival offers a much broader array of entertainment and activities than, I think, our other excellent festivals.” As for helping people understand exactly what “Fringe” means to Rochester, “It’s very much about educating the community about what a Fringe festival is about,” says Fee. “You can see many shows and exhibits within a short period. You can really feel enriched. You can laugh, you can cry, you can watch dance, whatever, all within that period. You can really judge for yourself. You can watch new work, you can watch revivals. You can make your own Fringe, as we say. It’s a smorgasbord of the arts.” To ensure that as many people as possible stuff themselves at that artistic smorgasbord, the festival has deliberately kept ticket costs low. Most shows cost $10 to $15, and seats for the highest-priced headliner, geek-hero comedian Patton Oswalt, run $15 to $55. There are also dozens of free performances throughout the week, including a gospel showcase on Gibbs Street on Sunday, and assorted street performers and other acts performing around the festival footprint.
With more than 150 shows taking place at 21
While people may not still fully understand
different venues, the range of acts involved in the first Rochester Fringe is larger in number and more diverse than any of the organizers say they had hoped for. “I don’t think anyone on the board thought there would be more than 100 different performances. That’s extraordinary,” says Geva’s Mark Cuddy. “And there’s such an eclectic range, a melding of high-brow and low-brow. There are populist events and yet some serious work and some comedy, as well as classical music. It’s really the range. And I’m hoping that people in our community that don’t think of themselves as cultural attendees will attend something, or several somethings, or just come on downtown to have a good time and check it out, and realize, ‘Oh, it’s OK, I fit in.’ I’m hoping we grow audiences for the rest of the year. We’re only going to do that if we do something really wonderful this one week and get really turned on.” “There will be something for everybody, I think,” says UR’s Paul Burgett. “Rochester is a festival town. In May we have the Lilac Festival, built around the magnificent lilacs in Highland Park. Memorial Art Gallery has Clothesline, built around the artistic efforts of 400-plus artists. The Corn Hill Festival is a quintessential American urban festival of vendors, some entertainment, but mostly vendors selling their wares. But Fringe Festival is not about selling products, it’s about entertaining, educating, exciting the festivalgoer with a panoply of activities, from Bandaloop to Harlem Gospel Choir to just a
Fringe, organizers believe that once audiences experience it, they’ll get it. “I’ve been saying all along that the explosion will actually happen after the first year, because people will go, ‘Oh! That’s what that is,’” says Cuddy. “The first year is, let’s just get through it, put on a really good first-year festival. And then people will understand what the possibilities are, and we’ll really get rolling.” And just as that Bandaloop footage at the first press conference really captured the room’s attention, Fee is looking for a similar experience for Rochester en masse when the troupe actually performs. “I think that when we have the community together watching Bandaloop dance on the side of HSBC Plaza, I hope the penny drops,” Fee says. “I hope people realize that yes, we’re right here, right now, and we can make a difference. I hope people recognize the potential of Rochester and the potential, not just for this festival… I think that Fringe festivals can really bring about a huge sea change in the performing arts. I hope that what we find here is, artists can really be edgy, not just during the festival, but they can try new things out year round, and that people are accepting of those things.”

Hollywood squares [ review ] by frank de blase
With a set up and light show that threatened to blow the doors off Water Street Music Hall last Thursday night, Canadian new wave/electronica band Metric positively rocked the house to a near-sold-out crowd and rabid audience. Anticipation was high for this show, the buzz emitting from unlikely sources as the crowd was a cross section of tastes, ages, and sex. Metric picks up where New Wave left off when it opted for disco cheese or simply disintegrated into bubblegum. But it wasn’t all machine. Metric is a rock band that blends guitar, bass, vocals, and real drums amidst the swirling storm of sonics, exquisite chaos, loops, and effects. Those effects derailed the band briefly during its song “Lost Kitten,” when one of the loops or a drum trigger failed. The light show was spectacular, resembling something like the set of “Hollywood Squares” or one of those Japanese video games that causes seizures. Beneath these lights the band comes off understated, looking more like stock rock ’n’ rollers
than the Gary Numan disciples you might expect. The Crawdiddies have arisen from the ashes of the weekly Son House Night over at Beale Street, and from the soul of dobro slinger Gordon Munding. The band celebrated the release of its “Soul of a Man” CD Monday night to a big crowd at the Record Archive with a two rollicking sets featuring songs from its country-blues-based canon. The band shifted gears nicely from Mississippi John Hurt lowdown dirt and denim to some swank T-Bone Walker gabardine sophistication. The edge that Munding exhibited through his take on House’s lonesome refrain in the past has been replaced by the gentle ease and haunt of singer Heather Taylor, who seconds on the flute. This dame can sing. She has a deep vibrato that comes off more as a purr as she wails salty and sweet. The whole band has a genuine casualness to it, which ultimately gets under collars and skin until you can’t resist any longer.

The principle ingredients in Vetiver’s mix complement and counter one another, creating a splendid sparkle. It’s a tonal blend of simple pop sugar over a more serious folkrock stock. By definition, that kind of puts the San Francisco band on the crowded indie shelf in the hip aisle. But Vetiver extends into its own territory by adopting an innocence to the seriousness and some intellectual weight to the fun. Founded in the Bay Area in 2002 by songwriter Andy Cabic, the band — which includes drummer and Rochester homeboy Otto Hauser — began releasing albums in 2004. First they came out on indie labels like DiCristina, later on its own imprint, Gnomonsong Recordings, and now it’s with Sub Pop, which released the band’s latest, 2011’s “The Errant Charm.” Cabic called us from San Francisco, home of the Beats and spotty cell-phone reception. An edited transcript of our conversation follows. CITY: What’s new in Vetiver’s world? ANDY CABIC: Not much going on lately. I’ve

the last record. I’ve been laying low here. It feels like it’s been a good many years of nonstop playing and working on records. So I’ve been working on other projects, writing for another record, kind of enjoying being home for a while. Are you wood-shedding with the rest of the band?
Everyone in the band lives in different places. It’s not a regular thing for the live line-up to get together, except when we have tours scheduled. Does touring take away from songwriting, or do you write on the road?
Touring is hard for me to get into the rhythm where I feel productive. I definitely get into a rhythm when that happens. And leaving to go on tour shakes me out of it. So it did take some of the focus out of that. But it led to different strategies and ways of working. So I’m enjoying being home, but I can’t wait to see everybody. We haven’t been in the northeast in a while. With music racing to keep up with technology and consumerism, what’s your preferred way to deliver Vetiver to the collective bloodstream?
Personally I like listening to vinyl usually, and often one side at a time. So to me, that format has a lot of resonance. But I don’t think there’s any one way of going about it that’s better than another. I need to earn
One thing that has happened in making records is that I usually give myself a decent amount of time to make them. Sometimes I start them with a clear idea where it is headed. But what winds up happening is that I revisit the songs in production in stages as the record’s getting made. Sometimes I’ll track more things and sometimes things will just fall away that are unnecessary. It just comes from taking time, stepping away, and coming back to it, realizing what isn’t essential and getting rid of it. What is the process?
In the writing and recording aspect, typically it’s myself and Tom Monahan, who has engineered and produced most of the records. We have a long friendship and working relationship. Usually it starts with the two of us discussing what’s going to happen and sifting through songs I have, notes I have. Each record is different after that part, in terms of which musicians come in. One album kind of leads to the next. Is the Vetiver we know the Vetiver you planned?
I had no plan. I had moved to San Francisco and started writing songs again. I had limited resources. An acoustic guitar — I didn’t even have an electric guitar. The first songs were acoustic. Then I found some string players and that gave it a chamber-folk-pop quality to it. So you had somewhat of a plan?
I just wanted the project to be a catchall for anything I was interested in. I just wanted to make it so I could do whatever I wanted, which has sort of come true. But there’s still a certain sound or style people have come to expect, and I’m happy to find a medium ground between pushing it and keeping things familiar.

JAZZ | Cyrille Aimee w/Diego Figueiredo
If Cyrille Aimee’s beautiful voice and inventive scat singing isn’t enough for you, you might want to focus on the endless chord inversions and gorgeous melodic runs Diego Figueiredo plays on his classical guitar. But Aimee and Figueiredo complement each other so magnificently that you won’t stand a chance of picking one over the other. You’ll just be transfixed as they breeze through classics like “That Old Devil Moon,” “A Night In Tunisia,” and “Bye Bye Blackbird.” Cyrille Aimee w/Diego Figueiredo perform Thursday, September 13, 7:30 p.m. at the Memorial Art Gallery, 500 University Ave. $20. 276-8900, mag.rochester.edu. — BY RON NETSKY
Reggae/House/Electronic | Spiritizual Rez
DJ Sita will start off the evening with a heavy electronic dub mix, which will be followed up by the far more house leanings of DJ Rufus Gibson. Sita has been at it locally for 10 years and it shows with the smooth mixes. Rufus Gibson is down from Buffalo and has a very chill house set. If you are in the need for some reggae, Spiritual Rez has your fix as the main act. In from Boston and getting ready to drop debut album, “Apocalypse Whenever,” these Berklee graduates sound like they migrated from someplace far more Caribbean than the distinctly less-than-tropical Northeast. The band has a swinging mix of reggae and funk that will no doubt have you swaying along like a palm tree. Spiritual Rez, Rufus Gibson, DJ Sita perform Thursday, September 13, 10 p.m. at Dubland Underground, 315 Alexander St. $5-$15, 18+. 232-7550. — BY SUZAN PERO Tastin’ the Blues:Steve Grills and the Roadmasters.

ROOTS/JAZZ | Jessy Carolina and the Hot Mess
Jessy Carolina’s songbook might be old, but it certainly ain’t lame. The Brooklyn-based singer-percussionist (does washboard count?) and her band, the Hot Mess, parties like it’s 1929. After all, somebody’s got to carry that torch, and Carolina’s got the smokin’ hot pipes to back it up. For this show, the troupe lines up as a svelte quartet, with the horn section of Satoru (sousaphone, trumpet, trombone, coronet) and Mario (sax, clarinet) taking turns playing bass lines. Jerron, a fine vocalist himself, holds down the rhythm part on banjo and piano if there’s one in the house. It’s all good fun and a legit (not campy) attempt to rekindle some great tunes.

JAZZ | Glenn Miller Orchestra
You know the songs: “In the Mood,” “Tuxedo Junction,” “Don’t Sit Under the Apple Tree (With Anyone Else But Me),” “(I’ve Got a Gal) In Kalamazoo,” and so many others. But did you know that the Glenn Miller Orchestra is still touring and playing them? Miller believed that a band should have its own personality, and his band did in spades. Miller died in 1944 at the age of 40 when his transport plane disappeared over the English Channel during World War II. But his orchestra was reorganized in 1956 and has been on the road — playing 300 gigs a year — ever since.

ROCK | Jukebox the Ghost
Jukebox the Ghost’s most recent album, “Safe Travels,” is the band’s third, and it showcases the outfit’s penchant for quirky pop that falls somewhere in the Ben Folds spectrum. That might be an easy comparison, but the album is replete with enough piano riffs and sing-along hooks to sate even the most jaded consumers of pop music. The New York-viaPhiladelphia trio is set to embark on a nearly 10-week-long tour that will send it to the West Coast and back again in support of “Safe Travels,” which was released this past June. Brooklyn’s Maps & Atlases — great performers in their own right — and local band The Demos both open the show. Jukebox the Ghost performs Sunday, September 16, 8 p.m. at Water Street Music Hall, 204 N. Water St. $12-$18. 325-5600, waterstreetmusic.com. — BY ANDY KLINGENBERGER
ROCK | Wye Oak
Baltimore duo Wye Oak take its moniker from the honorary state tree of Maryland, a 460-year-old white oak that was destroyed in a thunderstorm in 2002. The pair’s melodic noise pop might not share that namesake’s longevity, but the pair emulates its constant growth with each subsequent release; the most recent album, last year’s “Civilian,” found the pair at tits most urgent and accessible, with the title track being used on the soundtracks to multiple television shows and movies.

Best bets at the Rochester Fringe Fest
The inaugural First Niagara Fringe Festival will feature more than 100 shows at 20-plus venues over five days, September 19-23. It’s a staggering grouping of arts and cultural opportunities, and it can be difficult to know where to start. City Newspaper’s chief cultural critics have combed through the schedule and picked out their “best bets” for the festival; you’ll find them below. But these are just a smattering of the events going on throughout the festival. Go through the full festival guide, also included in this issue of City, or find the full schedule at rochesterfringe.com. Find out what looks interesting to you and make your own Fringe. During the festival, head to rochestercitynewspaper.com for our critics’ daily dispatches at the Entertainment Blog. We’ll have reviews, more previews, and our thoughts on what shows are the best of the fest. Make sure to leave your own reviews in the comments section.

One review of “The Bicycle Men” called it “a genial spoof.” So is this going to be one of those things that’s much funnier when you’re having a fourth beer with friends and making up a musical at 3 in the morning? But a naïve Yank who gets stuck while biking through France also conjures up the possibility of a demented Henry James (though without anything resembling a sense of humor). If the play’s oddball characters and surreal puppets avoid the trap of self-consciousness, this silly musical could be a treat. The Fringe says it’s appropriate for ages 16 and up. (Wednesday 9/19 8:30-9:30 p.m., Thursday 9/20 6-7 p.m., Friday 9/21 7:308:30 p.m., and Saturday 9/22 1:30-2:30 p.m. at Geva Theatre Nextstage. Tickets cost $15.) When “Casey Jones Costello Sings the Great American Songbook,” audiences will encounter a college student who looks even younger than his years, but who sings these songs his grandparents still know with affection and sincerity. His voice is pleasant and his singing style unadorned. You will also understand every single word in these incomparable songs of sentiment and wit by such masters of the craft as Irving Berlin, Lorenz Hart, Yip Harburg, Cole Porter, Ira Gershwin, and Johnny Mercer. This may be one of the few Fringe performances where simple honest sentiment prevails. (Friday 9/21 5-6 p.m. and Saturday 9/22 7-8 p.m. at Java’s. Free admission.) The ancient Sumerian epic “Gilgamesh” includes a Flood story that predated and influenced the Old Testament’s Noah story. More importantly, it is one of the first tragic tales in which a king worthy of his quest seeks immortality and, of course, fails. The gods toy with him as they do with all humans. Into that world struts a single 21st century actor playing nearly two dozen parts with his sense of irony intact. “Charlie Bethel’s Gilgamesh” offers up a jaundiced take on one of the humankind’s most extraordinary sagas. (Saturday 9/22 3 p.m. and Sunday 9/23 8 p.m. at Geva Theatre Nextstage. Tickets cost $15.) Don’t yawn, don’t shift in your seat, don’t

like this anymore! (Saturday 9/22 2 p.m. and Sunday 9/23 12:30 p.m. at RAPA’s East End Theatre. Tickets cost $5-$10.) “Love at First Waltz” (a sublime title that has already got me swaying) brings together BIODANCE, a locally based modern-dance company, and Resonanz, a 40-voice touring choir from within the Rochester Oratorio Society. In the middle of the 19th century, the waltz was controversial; in the early 20th, syncopation (by way of ragtime) was equally raffish. But each soon became the defining popular music of its time. Their composers — Johannes Brahms, George and Ira Gershwin, Cole Porter, and more — started on the fringe but we moved them into the mainstream. One of the music’s natural habitats is a cabaret, and so it will be here. (Sunday 9/23 6:30-7:30 p.m. at RAPA’s East End Theatre. Tickets cost $8-$12.)

even goddam blink, because you might miss an entire play from “44 Plays for 44 Presidents.” Each president beginning with George — and including Zachary, Millard, Ulysses, Rutherford, Chester, Calvin, and Barack — is the subject of a two-minute play. Like a lot of the presentations in the Fringe Festival, this one is also self-billed as “hilarious” and “irreverent.” The performers are young professionals from the Geva Theatre Conservatory. (Saturday 9/22 8-10 p.m. and Sunday 9/23 3-5 p.m. at Geva Theatre Nextstage. Ticket cost $15.) Vaudeville was the most important form of American show business until the Great Depression, Talkies, and radio combined to bury it in the 1930’s. Until then, every town big enough to have a theater had daily eight-act bills featuring everything from animal acts to comics to song-and-dance men. A touring star like Nora Bayes or Sophie Tucker would come to town for a week and take an entire floor of the best hotel. “Flower City Vaudeville,” a local troupe, emphasizes the novelty acts and the comedy, rather than the songs and the soft shoe. It appears to be vaudeville with a smattering of circus tossed in, but how do you resist people who ride a unicycle, juggle, and play the washboard? They don’t do show biz
There are some unknowns in human existence that might never be answered. But that doesn’t mean we won’t eternally ask questions about our purpose (or lack thereof), the nature of death, and the slippery slope of human cognition. Core Project Chicago’s “The Dust” will explore these themes of death, fate, memory, and man through dance, poetry, experimental music, and visual art. The performance is recommended for all ages. (Sunday 9/23 5-6 p.m. at RAPA’s East End Theatre. Tickets cost $8-$10. A free workshop for ages 14+ will take place Friday 9/21 7:45 p.m. For more information, visit rapatheatre.org.) Ever wonder what would happen if two unlikely people from history met up? No time machine is required to rewrite history in the play, “Howard & Emily,” because the title characters connect post-mortem. The shades of pseudo-morbid Emily Dickinson and arcane-obsessed Howard Philips (H.P.) Lovecraft share the stage, unaware of each other at first, their lines comprised of quotes from their writings and letters, before the two eventually fall in love to the sweet serenade of period music. Add one Doktor Bronislaw Kielbasa-Funk, a Polish acolyte of Freud who has fallen into ill-repute, and whose life is severely altered by what he witnesses. Recommended for ages 15 and older. (Friday 9/21 8-9 p.m. and Saturday 9/22 4-5 p.m. at Writers & Books. Tickets cost $10.) RIT’s visual arts will be represented throughout Fringe at various locations, including Gallery r (100 College Ave.), where you can view Cat Ashworth’s video installation, “Bee Eye.” Visitors may enter the hexagonshaped structure and be immersed in the sights and sounds of the honeybee, and explore the artist’s perspective on the fragile and crucial

honeybee-human relationship. While there, check out the showcase of works by RIT undergraduates and graduate students from RIT’s College of Imaging Arts and Sciences, many of which are interactive and encourage audience participation. And at the Little Theatre Café (240 East Ave.), visitors can view a showcase of CIAS alum works in the fine arts, illustration, and photography. (All shows are free and take place throughout the Fringe Festival, and are recommended for all ages.) Does your shirt just sit there on your back, keeping you warm and presentable, but otherwise bored? Should we expect a little bit more? I mean, this is the future, right? On Friday, The Little Theatre will host RIT’s Wearable Technology Show, which will feature the convergence of aesthetics and technology in surprising and silly ways. Learn what flying birds, fireflies, invisibility, and blinking lights have to do with adornments. RIT student creators will be on hand to explain the technology and answer questions from the audience. (Friday 9/21 6-6:45 p.m. at Little 1. Admission is free.) The title of Rochester Museum and Science Center’s artsy presentation about the passage of time, “Lost in the Funhouse: Revolution,” calls up images of tripping clumsily through cosmos and this confounding existence. I’m intrigued by the promise of projected planetarium star maps and videos, live computer music, field recordings, and spoken words, all combined to discuss how the shifting of seasons, solar and lunar cycles, and celestial mechanics affects us physically and psychologically. (Thursday 9/20 6-7 p.m., Saturday 9/22 8-9 p.m., Sunday 9/23 6-7 p.m. at RMSC’s Strasenburgh Planetarium. Admission is $8, program is recommended for ages 5+.) RIT is practically dominating the visual-arts aspect of the Fringe Festival, and on Saturday, members of the institute’s community will take over the surface of a downtown church.

probably be there, too. (Friday 9/21 8 p.m. at Java’s. Free admission.) Sure, ukuleles have become sort of a thing now: a smaller and higher-pitched answer to those loud and lavishing guitars that used to be all the rage. Oliver Brown and His Extraordinary Ukuleles blends this mystical sea-shanty instrument with humorous song topics ranging from Shakespeare to the wonders of the peanutbutter sandwich. He’s also had a song appear on “Sesame Street,” so take that credential for what you will. (Friday 9/21 7-8 p.m. at Bernuzio’s Uptown Music. Tickets cost $5.) Dear Dexter (and yes, the group takes the name from the serial-killer show you’re probably thinking about) will bring some acoustic-laden rock ‘n’ roll to the Fringe Fest. The group, fronted by Jason Morgan, is shifting and growing. But Morgan’s central vocals and songwriting cement the group strongly in alternative-rock territory, while retaining the intimacy acoustic instruments allow. (Thursday 9/20 9:30 p.m., Saturday 9/22 5 p.m. at Java’s. Free admission.) And sometimes you just need to have fun. Comedic hip-hop duo Garden Fresh, made up of Professor Fizizizt and Tha Dome, takes the style and ground that hip-hop makes as soil and creates something else: a polite, fiscally responsible rap group that is as profound as it is hysterical. You won’t find alcohol-promoting jams here (instead the group praises water with songs like… “Water”) or rap-battling egos (see; “Sitting Politely”). (Friday 9/21 and Saturday 9/22 9:30 p.m. at Bernunzio’s Uptown Music. Tickets cost $5.) Writing a good song and writing a good story aren’t really that different.

The Eastman School of Music students creating “Hide the Moon,” an original adaptation of Oscar Wilde’s “Salome,” are billing the event by the emotions infatuation, loathing, fear, and lust. Who doesn’t want an hour of high drama? The student group, led by Andrew Pramuk, are infusing drama, music, movement, and original arrangements to tell the Biblical tale of Salome requesting the head of John the Baptist on a platter for her dance of the seven veils. There will be actors as musicians and musicians as actors in a show that Pramuk describes on Kickstarter as “theater like a rock concert.” (Wednesday 9/19 8:30-9:30 p.m., Saturday 9/22 10:30-11:30 p.m. at RAPA’s East End Theatre. Admission is free.) Raise your parasols to the skies as the voices of the Harlem Gospel Choir descend upon the Fringe Festival and lead you home to that place of “Hallelujah!” After 26 years of touring the world, performing for presidents and royalty, and alongside legendary musicians from Sonny Bono to Josh Groban, who hasn’t heard of this group? Its 65 members range in age from 17 to 70, touring in a simple configuration of nine singers, keyboard, and drums. Come out to sway to songs like “Oh Happy Day” or dance in the aisles to songs like “When the Saints Come Marching In.” Rochester gospel sensations The Campbell Brothers open. (Friday 9/21 8 p.m. at Kodak Hall at Eastman Theatre. Tickets cost $10-$40.) Not performing in Fringe? You can still participate. Multimedia artist and ESM student Peter Ferry brings a solo percussion performance to the festival, including his work “Nostalgia Project.” The musical piece was written especially for Ferry by ESM graduate Matt Evans. You can go to nostalgia.cias.rit.edu to listen to a bit of the work and then submit a photo of your own that evokes feelings of nostalgia. Evans previously performed with ESM’s new music group OSSIA, and was awarded a 2012-13 post-graduate fellowship to work with Bang on a Can. He also works with So Percussion, Nexus, and Ensemble Signal. (Thursday 9/20 6-7 p.m., Saturday 9/22 1-2 p.m. at Hatch Recital Hall, ESM. Tickets cost $5.) Improvisation upon the church organ is not a new thing. But, for Fringe, here comes a triple-improv of church organ, dance, and images. Set in historic Christ Church, “Spirits Within” will involve Stephen Kennedy on the organ, dancers from FuturPointe, and multimedia displays projected onto the dancers from RIT Professor Marla Schweppe and 3Ddigital-design students.

Esther Rogers has written and will direct “Death of (An) Artist” as a multi-disciplinary work that involves improvisation. Actors, musicians, and dancers will use elements from a script with interactive improvisation to ask “Who killed Artist?” while exploring the boundaries of each one’s individual art forms. Rogers is trained as a classical cellist and teaches at the Rochester Contemporary School of Music. With questioning the boundaries of one’s discipline being en vogue, this work seems perfectly suited for Fringe. (Friday 9/21 8-9 p.m., Sunday 9/23 8-9 p.m. at RAPA’s East End Theatre. Tickets cost $10-$12. Free workshop Friday 9/21 9:15-10 p.m. for ages 12+)

If you’ve ever seen her at a drag brunch, as part of the Big Wigs, or acting in a local theater production, you know that Kasha Davis is a born entertainer. She sings, she dances, she tips a box of wine with style and pizzazz. And now Davis is back with her own one-woman show, “There’s Always Time for a Cocktail.” Straight outta the suburbs, Davis will beguile audiences with the story of how little Eddie Popil of Scranton, PA, grew up to become an international celebrity housewife. Expect music, heartfelt drama, and party games. Recommended for ages 13 and up. (Thursday 9/20 10 p.m., Saturday 9/22 9 p.m., Sunday 9/23 5 p.m. at TheatreROCS at Xerox Auditorium. Tickets cost $15.) A favorite of Fringe festivals around the world, John Clancy’s “The Event” is one of those plays you’re not supposed to talk about too much for fear of giving it all away. So I won’t. All I’ll say is that it’s a very meta work that will make you simultaneously sit back, lean forward, and think even as your head pops off. Recommended for ages 14 and up.

Stories within stories [ REVIEW ] by George Grella
“The Words” (PG-13), written and directed by Brian Klugman and Lee Sternthal Now playing
Although throughout its history the cinema has offered numerous examples of films about artists of all sorts, writers seem the least congenial subjects for the camera. Composers, musicians, painters, sculptors, actors, dancers, even filmmakers themselves provide rich visual material for any director. The actual methods and practices of creation in the graphic, plastic, and performing arts are intrinsically fascinating,

and American film handles the concept of sheer process with remarkable skill. Writers, however, present a difficult challenge for any director; simply put, the act of writing is not at all glamorous or colorful. Most of it consists of long, lonely hours spent scratching one’s head and looking vaguely into the middle distance, searching for a word, hoping for an idea. Once in a while a film will illustrate a story coming to life — one of the best sequences in “The World According to Garp” shows a series of images from which the title character weaves an eccentric, touching narrative — but few movies sustain such moments for any significant length. In “The Words,” a picture entirely about writers and writing, a series of stories that overlap, intersect, and merge into each other provides the framework for an essentially interior and even meditative cinematic essay. The movie employs several different methods of telling its story, and ingeniously, in the best Modernist manner, even in effect invites the

audience to participate in the completion of its narratives. It begins with an author, Clay Hammond (Dennis Quaid) reading parts of his novel to a large and rapt audience, then moves smoothly into a visualization of his fiction, a work about a struggling young writer, Rory Jansen (Bradley Cooper), enduring the familiar blizzard of rejection slips from agents and publishers, who for one reason or another will not accept his novel. He finds a manuscript in an old briefcase that he and his wife buy in Paris and, not really knowing why, decides to copy it verbatim on his computer. When his wife (Zoe Saldana) reads it, she insists that he submit it to the agency where he works in the mailroom; the agent loves it, the book, “Window Tears,” becomes a grand critical and commercial success, winning prizes, earning a great deal of money, and guaranteeing publication of his previously rejected work. When the film shifts back to Hammond’s reading, another character, simply identified as The Old Man (Jeremy Irons), enters the story; he stalks Rory, finally accosting him in Central Park, and identifies himself as the real author of “Window Tears.” He tells Rory yet another story, explaining the context of his own creation and the loss of the manuscript, reminiscent of an actual event in Hemingway’s life. Consumed by guilt, Rory tries desperately to make amends, but The Old Man wants nothing from him

Internal heart drive [ REVIEW ] BY DAYNA PAPALEO
“Robot & Frank” (PG-13), directed by Jake Schreier Now playing
beyond the need to disburden himself of his past and perhaps to read him an unwritten book of pain and sorrow. Moving through various levels of fiction, alternating between Clay Hammond’s reading, the dramatization of Rory Jansen’s life, the further dramatization of The Old Man’s youth, the movie suggests some of the many options in the working out of the main narrative. Hammond even invites a lovely graduate student groupie (Olivia Wilde) to finish the novel herself, ending the picture with an ironic ambiguity entirely appropriate to its confusions of fictional life and real life. True to its title, “The Words” concentrates a good deal of attention on words and their relation to reality, with a number of discussions of the subject, resulting quite naturally in a certain talkiness. Its deft handling of a complex subject and a convoluted narrative, however, avoids any descent into boring literary lectures. The performances vary oddly, with Dennis Quaid providing a strangely prissy delivery of his perfectly acceptable lines. Surprisingly, Bradley Cooper handles the complicated situation of a man whose dreams come true, but feels devoured by his guilty knowledge that he deserves none of his success; on the other hand, his scenes with Zoe Saldana ooze a mushy sweetness. Bitter, defeated, profane, Jeremy Irons does a remarkable job as The Old Man, a terrific piece of work in a supporting role that also somehow explains the meanings of the movie.
When we imagine what the future might look like, the pictures that enter our heads typically come straight from the movies. What we don’t usually think about is that before, say, “The Fifth Element” breaks out, before the unitards and the hover cars, there will be small, gradual changes. A translucent phone here, a robot health aide there; that’s “the near future” found in the charmingly resonant “Robot & Frank,” a genre mash-up of buddy flick, heist caper, love story, and whatever they call those movies where a senior citizen finds their twilight raison d’être. You’ll notice I didn’t mention science fiction; sure, the film showcases some nifty gadgets, but “Robot & Frank” is primarily concerned with the gorgeously fallible circuitry of the human heart. In the midst of a mesmerizing third act that should yield an Oscar before too long, Frank Langella stars as Frank, who we first meet as he’s breaking into a house... his own house, we learn, as he puzzles over photos of him and his

family. The 70-something Frank, who lives alone in a cluttered but quaint house in the Hudson Valley town of Cold Spring, is in the early stages of Alzheimer’s disease; he can’t remember details about his kids or the closing of a beloved restaurant, but the former cat burglar can still pick a lock, and his muscle memory allows for some smooth shoplifting. The high points of his days seem to be his trips to the library, where he flirts with Jennifer (Susan Sarandon), the pretty, patient librarian. Frank’s dementia has left him angry and defensive when dealing with his frustrated son Hunter (James Marsden), who makes the 10-hour round trip on a weekly basis despite family obligations of his own. Hunter’s solution? A robot; more specifically, the astronaut-looking VGC-60L (with the creepily calm tones of Peter Sarsgaard), who Hunter envisions will help his dad care for himself. This part you can write yourself: crabby old man butts heads with bossy computer over his love of Cap’n Crunch and his disdain for exercise until they find some common ground. In this particular case, it’s an aptitude for illegal behaviors combined with a lack of morals, though in only one of them it’s by factory design. Planning robberies provides Frank with the mental jump-start he needs, and the film provides us with the perfect (if cartoonishly one-dimensional) mark in the form of Jake (Jeremy Strong), Jennifer’s wealthy, condescending boss who is intent on doing away with printed material. “Robot & Frank” (honestly, what a lazy title) tags along with Robot and Frank as the former carries out his duties in service to the latter, who has convinced Robot that the stimulation of B&E is exactly what he needs to maintain his positive health
trajectory. Cue close calls, familial strife, a tenacious sheriff (the eternally underappreciated Jeremy Sisto), and a revelation that is shocking, hearttugging, and entirely earned. Langella is one of those guys who has seemingly been around forever, a decorated stage actor who didn’t really hit his cinematic stride until 60; it was once his swarthy good looks began silvering with age that directors were able to see him as something other than the bad guy. (Case in point: The man has played Dracula, Skeletor, AND Nixon.) Appearing in nearly every scene here — and often opposite an expressionless robot — Langella never once hits a false note. Of course this otherwise strapping septuagenarian would be dispirited by his increasingly debilitating condition, but he’s also by turns salty, petulant, loving, manipulative, and wise. You can take the man out of the fight, but good luck taking the fight out of the man. Fortunately, Langella is also one of those guys who raises the games of everyone nearby; even the breathy, blank Liv Tyler as Frank’s anti-robot daughter, a globetrotting activist guilted into visiting her father, almost seems like a master thespian in his presence. (And Marsden is excellent; he’s finally starting to grow on me.) Sarandon is nicely understated as the pivotal Jennifer, and she enjoys very sweet — and refreshingly age-appropriate — chemistry with Langella. Shot over an efficient 20 days, “Robot & Frank” is the first feature from director Jake Schreier and screenwriter Christopher D. Ford, former classmates at NYU who have resisted the Hollywood impulse to make cute fluff about a retiree and a robot, instead crafting a warm, truthful film about raging against the dying of the LED.

This violent, dust-choked Western revitalized a genre everyone took for dead. It begins with a set-up we think we’ve seen before: retired gunslinger Will Munny (Clint Eastwood) leaves his hog farm for one last job, avenging a prostitute badly disfigured by a john whom the sheriff (Gene Hackman) has no interest in punishing. Ultimately, Eastwood and screenwriter David Webb Peoples affirm the Western as a complex vehicle for untangling the legacies of vigilantism, sexism, racism, and institutional rot. Winner of four Academy Awards®, including Best Picture. (Clint Eastwood, US 1992, 131 min.)

bedroom. In the bathroom is original black and white tile on floor and walls, plus a new pedestal sink.
The columned front porch leads to the original wood front door. In the foyer are some of the house’s many windows topped with leaded glass panels. Narrow “Rochesterstyle” oak floors are everywhere except the kitchen with its wide-planked maple floors. To the right of the foyer is the living room, where a deep window seat faces the street. Wood pocket doors (they work!) separate the living room from the formal dining room, where a bank of windows has a sill deep enough for plants to rest. The eat-in kitchen has modern elements – tile backsplash, dramatic lighting, good organization – while retaining the large pantry’s built-in cabinets and window. A rear porch was replaced by the powder room beyond the original exterior door. Built in 1910, the house seems much larger than its 1,646 square feet. That may be due to the tall ceilings, abundant natural light, and extra potential living space in the huge attic and clean, dry basement. A generous second floor landing opens on to four bedrooms,
The sleeping porch overlooks the back yard and large wood deck with built-in planters. In the front of the house, mature peonies and hydrangea line the porch. The annual Historic Maplewood Home & Garden Tour is this Saturday, September 15, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Five distinctive homes showcase the neighborhood’s architectural significance and quality of life. Listed in the National and State Registers of Historic Properties, Historic Maplewood was built by early Eastman Kodak officers, entrepreneurs and civic leaders a hundred years ago. Tour tickets are available in advance for $10 ($8 seniors) at Parkleigh, Peppermill Restaurant, Dark Horse Coffee and Creative Hands, or on the day of the Tour for $12 at headquarters: the Claude Bragdondesigned Maplewood YMCA On your way to the tour, drive by 134 Gorsline St. to see this charming home for yourself. It is listed for $94,900 through Sharon Gersey, ReMax Realty Group, 756-7480.
