A WORD FROM LARRY
Sand sculpting competition gets underway One really great event that you have to see is the 19th Annual Hampton Beach Master Sand Sculpting Competition. It all starts this Friday, June 14, when 200 tons of imported sand is dropped on Larry Marsolais Hampton Beach and the event organizers start pounding up the sponsor site. The entire area is illuminated for night viewing through June 27. The competition is by invitation only, but everyone is invited to watch the sculptors in action. Once the sand is in place and the sponsor site is up, the schedule for 2019 Master Sand Sculpting Competition is as follows: June 20 and June 21: Master solo competition, all day. June 22: Judging & People’s Choice Award from 1 to 3 p.m. and at 8 p.m.

With the first day of summer coming up June 21, you can see that things are really starting to happen all around us, with plenty to see and do along the coast. This is also motorcycle week, so be safe! And from all of us here at the Scene we wish all the dads a Happy Father’s Day. As always, I would love to hear from our readers.

Kids' Guide To
Summer By Caleb Jagoda As kids get out of school and start looking for ways to fill their days, the Seacoast has a whole world full of explorations and adventures.
EXPLORE AND LEARN Seacoast Science Center 570 Ocean Blvd., Rye, 603-436-8043, seacoastsciencecenter.org If you’re visiting the Seacoast Science Center at Odiorne Point State Park in Rye, the first thing you’re going to want to do is roll your sleeves up, according to Karen Provazza, the director of marketing at the Seacoast Science Center. “We’re a look and touch, roll up your SEACOAST SCENE | JUNE 13 - 19, 2019 | PAGE 6
sleeves, get your hands wet, get your feet wet,” Provazza said. “We take people right out into the tide pools, right into the rocky shore, right into the natural environment. I think that’s what makes us really unique. We’re able to offer really personal experiences.” As Provazza said, the Seacoast Science Center encourages people to get right down into the nitty-gritty of things, and the reason they’re able to do that is their location within Odiorne State Park. With this advantage, they’ve been able to open up several hands-on exhibits, like their indoor tide pool touch tanks, where visitors can actually touch chain catsharks, little
skates, sea stars and much more, or like their discovery dock exhibit, where children are encouraged to jump into a mini fisherman’s setup complete with yellow fisherman’s gear and a miniature boat and wire lobster cage. All of this, along with their numerous programs that range from toddler age all the way to adults, is just part of their goal to teach people the wonders of our ocean and ways that we can keep it healthy and happy. “We’re inspiring people to care about the ocean,” Provazza said. “We know that the ocean needs our help, we know the ocean is in trouble, and the more eyes we can draw to the ocean and inspire people to
make choices in their daily lives that promote ocean health, we’re helping to build a better planet for future generations. So in all of our programs we try to educate people about the small ways that they can help, that there’s no step too small that they can take to make a difference.” The Seacoast Science Center is open seven days a week from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Upcoming events at the Science Center: Listen to live music at the Atlantic Grill Music by the Sea every Thursday evening from 6 to 8:30 p.m. from Thursday, July 11, through Thursday, Aug. 1, at the Seacoast Science Center in Odiorne Point

and more while helping them collect data, handle and inspect green crabs, perform a mock rescue of a seal, learn about ocean drifters and more. The event is $2.50 per person or $10 per family for SSC members and $5 per person or $20 per family for nonSSC members. Children’s Museum of New Hampshire 6 Washington St., Dover, 603-742-2002, childrens-museum.org In most places adults set the rules over the way kids behave and interact with their environment — it’s just how the world works. If this is how the world works, then the Children’s Museum of New Hampshire in Dover must be on a whole different planet, never mind being located in Dover, New Hampshire. “The founding educators, they wanted a space where the kids really were in control and in charge,” the communications director of the Children’s Museum, Neva Cole, said. “They aren’t told, ‘No don’t touch that,’ they are told, ‘Yes, interact with that, play with that,’ and encouraged to discover new things.” Cole explained how the Children’s Museum aims to create an interactive 8

7 world for the children to explore and learn, and the museum itself is pretty much its own entire universe for its tiny explorers. Its museum consists of two floors of exhibits with different themes, and the first thing visitors see when they walk into the museum is a yellow submarine that they can drive through a virtual reef to observe sea creatures. The “two floors” of exhibits soon unfold into tiny, limitless dimensions of possibilities and planets, universes and cosmos, all for the children to scan, soak up and continue grasping as they rumble down their road to mental growth. The Children’s Museum is a nonprofit organization that relies on fundraisers, admission and membership fees and community donations to function. With their convenient location in the heart of Dover, Cole hopes that through keeping the museum so full of fun and exploration for the children through their many programs, special events, camps, exhibits and more, they can keep families visiting the museum over and over again. “You can really tell the impact that their visit is having on them and to just be in a space where they are completely in control, they can do anything they want,” Cole said. “Every couple of steps you get a new experience.” The Children’s Museum is open Tuesday through Saturday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday noon to 5 p.m.
Upcoming events at the Children’s Museum: Learn how creators do what they do at the 7th Annual New Hampshire Maker & Food Fest at the Children’s Museum of New Hampshire on Saturday, June 29, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Engineers, artists, scientists, chefs and many other kinds of makers will be showing how they create and letting event attendees try their hand at it. Also in atten-
dance will be a variety of food trucks. “It’s basically like our mission on steroids,” Cole said. Also on the day of the Maker & Food Fest is the Recycled River Regatta from noon to 2 p.m., a challenge to create a boat that can both float in the water and survive a 20-foot drop into the Cocheco River. The boats will be launched by museum staff off the Washington Street Bridge while contestants and attendees observe from lower Henry Law Park. The Children’s Museum will be holding boat building days June 24 through June 27. Another event occurring on the day of the Maker & Food Fest is the 2nd Annual Dover Duck Derby from 1 to 2 p.m. at the Children’s Museum. Participants “adopt” a rubber duck and watch as the ducks race down the river after being dropped in from the Washington Street Bridge. The event is a fundraiser for both the Children’s Museum and SEED (Seacoast Educational Endowment for Dover). One duck is $5, 12 ducks are $50 and a flock of 50 ducks is $100. On Friday, Aug. 2, the Children’s Museum will be hosting their Teddy Bear Clinic from 10 a.m. to noon, followed by their Teddy Bear Picnic from noon to 12:30 p.m. Children are invited to bring their favorite stuffed animal for a wellness check-up and ensuing tea party. The Teddy Bear Clinic is a free event included in the regular admission price of the Children’s Museum and is free for members.

Rye Airfield 6 Airfield Drive, Rye, 603-964-2800, ryeairfield.com Skateboarding, biking and other action sports often get glossed over in the physical education programs at schools, which instead opt to teach kids the basics of football, basketball and other sports of this merit. While there’s no shame in teaching kids the classic sports, Beau Lambert, the general manager of Rye Airfield, is trying to change the way we ignore action sports through his efforts at Rye Airfield and Get On Board, a school program he piloted to implement action sports into physical education systems. “Not every kid wants to play a team sport,” Lambert said. “We just introduce them to it. It’s something they can do to adulthood.” At Rye Airfield, Lambert has built up a tradition of teaching kids the fundamentals of wheel sports while still encouraging them to have fun from the start. In their 50,000-foot facility, Rye Airfield offers a number of programs, camps and free ride opportunities to get kids having fun on wheels. Lambert explained that 10

PEOPLE AND PLACES
SUSAN KENNEY CO-OWNER OF SALISBURY SPORTS PUB every day and to learn what works and what doesn’t work. Feedback of all kinds is welcomed and listened to. We can’t always act on all of it at once, but we do meet weekly with our management team to go over feedback, new ideas, and changes we need to make to better our business.
Tell us how you got into this line of work. My husband Kevin had always wanted to one day open his own restaurant and sports pub. We had spent some time living in New York and dreamed of one day opening a premier sports pub for relaxing and enjoying food, drink, sports and other entertainment. What makes your place different? I guess what makes us different is we ... attract many different types of patrons of all ages and various incomes. I would say we are the affordable place. We also class it up for those wanting to splurge and eat and taste the finer things in life. How have things gone for you since opening? We have hired on some experienced restaurant and bar area staff. We have learned from them and we have shared our working knowledge on how to run a successful business. What are your business challenges? We still maintain our full-time professional careers within Fortune 500 companies. My husband is a Director of Strategic Sales, and I am a Quality Systems Program Manager. We are lucky to have attracted a great crew, though, that we can rely on to help us run our business based on our vision and mission. Are you excited for the summer? What are your expectations? We are very excited for the summer — it was a long, quiet winter. Those [who] own a business know what the expenses are and that you need happy and loyal customers to survive during the winter, too. Warm weather will bring in more customers. Our expectations are set high to keep improving
When not working, what do you do for fun? Any hobbies or favorite activities? I love walks on the beach with my Salisbury rescue dog Kiki and chatting with locals in my community. Working two full-time jobs doesn’t leave much time for hobbies, but I would have to say fun for me is spending quality time with friends and family. Are you from the Seacoast originally? Kevin and I were born in Lowell. We have known each other since we were 8 years old. We danced at an eighth-grade social, shared the same school bus all through high school, then prom and eventually marriage and children. We don’t know our lives without each other.

Do you expect a lot of tourists to come in? How has business been so far this year? We do expect to see more customers come through during the summer months, but it is our hope to be that place that folks want to come to year-round and not just for the summer. Business has been really great in our first six months in the evenings and especially on weekends. We don’t seem to get much of a lunch crowd so we are hoping that will change.

What do you love the most about the Seacoast? We love the beach atmosphere. People are so much happier and friendlier at the beach. We fell in love with the Salisbury community. Such great people and what a beautiful beach. It’s a hidden gem. Any big plans this summer? There is nothing we don’t do [in a big way]. We believe in working smarter, not harder, and there is no place I would rather be than at Salisbury Beach for the summer. There is always stuff to do and it’s the best place to spend time with those you love and care about. We have a full lineup of entertainment for the summer at Salisbury and we want to be a part of it and enjoy it with those around us. — Rob Levey

The annual Somersworth International Children’s Festival, which will be celebrating its 39th year, attempts to make the world a little bit smaller by giving local kids a slice of all of the world’s cultures. The Somersworth International Children’s Festival is Saturday, June 15, but begins with their celebration and opening festivities at the Festival Pavilion at Somersworth High School at 6 p.m. on the evening of Friday, June 14. Two musical acts, Wayne from Maine and Bad Breath Microphone, will be playing music, and there will be food trucks, bounce houses, rides and a trailer where kids can go inside and play video games, 20 at a time. The night will be capped off with a fireworks display just after sunset. Friday night — along with the rest of the Children’s Festival — is free of charge, aside from a suggested donation to the Somersworth Festival Association for the following year’s fireworks. As Sue Gregoire, the director of the Somersworth Festival Association for the last 29 years, said, Friday night and its ensuing celebrations are all in line with what the event’s original creators had in mind when they organized it 39 years ago. “[The event’s creators] decided that they wanted to show pride in Somersworth and they geared it toward the arts because they thought that that was important,” said Gregoire. “And it’s international because they wanted to show all nationalities in our city, and there [were] lots and lots of people from Canada at that time.” The international aspects of the festival come into play Saturday, as the event’s main location in downtown Somersworth on Main Street across from the public library will have both a Main Street stage with a continuously rotating cast of performers and a World Cultures stage where different cultures will be represented through various ethnic performances. Also at the World Cultures area, people will be able to partake in crafts, food and more at various tables representing a number of different countries. “When they go to those countries’ tables they get a passport, and they have those stamped at all the countries and once they’re done they put in a raffle for different prizes,” Gregoire said of the World Cultures area. On Saturday at the Main Street stage, the band Acoustic Radio will be performing at 10 a.m. followed by Dana Perkins, ventriloquist and magician, at noon, Bad Breath Microphone at 1 p.m. and Tricky Dick the Magician at 3 p.m. And performing at the World Cultures stage, an Indonesian band,

24 Denby, will play at 10 a.m., followed by McDonough-Grimes Irish Dancers at 1:45 p.m. and Carol Coronis at 2:15 p.m. Also strolling about throughout the day will be a roaming one-man band walking on stilts, making his first-ever appearance at the Somersworth Children’s Festival. Along with the festival’s Main Street location, they have a second location on Saturday at Noble Pines Park that people can get to courtesy a C&J trolley that will be making trips to and from the Pines all day long. “The kids, they’re entertained a lot by the trolley. They love riding the trolley,” Gregoire said. According to Gregoire, the Noble Pines Park offers a more relaxed, calm venue opposed to the busy happenings of downtown Somersworth. “Up at the Pines, it’s kind of laid back, you know, they sit on the grass and watch the stage and eat,” Gregoire said, “and when it’s a hot day, it’s nice and cool up there …
there’s lots of trees and lots of shade.” Gregoire also said that at the Pines they will be having, food, wildlife encounters, bounce houses, pony rides and other free activities. Performing at the Noble Pines Park stage is Tricky Dick the Magician at 10 a.m., followed by Steve Blunt at 11 a.m., Wayne from Maine at noon, Wildlife Encounters at 1 p.m., Mr. B’s Taekwon Do at 1:30 p.m. and Dana Perkins at 2 p.m. Gregoire said that this year they’re trying to offer more free entertainment to appeal to everybody and anybody who wants to stroll down to the festival’s venue in order to offer fun to families who may not be able to afford festivities that cost money per-person. As Gregoire said, what she finds to be the most rewarding part of the weekend’s festivities is “just watching the kids have a good time. Smiling families doing things together.” Visit nhfestivals.org. — Caleb Jagoda

New Toyota Camry can do everything except play CDs tive it is. So, you’re not alone there. And you’re not alone in wanting a CD player — although you are increasingly in the minority these days, as most people store their music on their phones. The easiest, though not cheapest, way to get a CD player is to visit a reputable car stereo store. Look carefully at reviews and recommendations because it’s a business where quality varies a lot from store to store. A good car stereo shop can either add a permanent CD player that they will mount somewhere for you, or they can even replace your Camry’s “head unit” (the stereo controller on your dashboard) with a whole new system that has a CD player built in. If only I could’ve replaced my brother’s “head unit.” If you’re handy and prefer to do it yourself, just go online and search for “USB CD player for 2019 Camry.” You’ll find a number of options for CD players that plug into your car stereo’s USB port. Then, when you select USB as your “source,” your car stereo system will play whatever’s in the CD player. The player itself can go in the glove box, under the dash, or on the side of the center console, with self-adhesive patches. But try a good stereo shop first. See what

it costs to have it done professionally and cleanly. After all, it’s a brand-new car, Janet. It’s a little early to be telling your passengers to “watch the wires” when they get in. Dear Car Talk: I realize that Hondas are considered to be very well made and reliable cars. However, I have always refrained from buying one because they were known to have “interference” engines and a timing belt instead of a timing chain. I did not like the idea that if I neglected to change the timing belt in time, the engine would “self-destruct.” I saw in one of your recent columns that you advised one of your readers that they did not have to change the timing belt on their Honda Accord since it had a timing chain, not a belt. My question to you is this: Where can a consumer find reliable information such as this when considering a car purchase? I have found that the car salespeople do not know and will tell you whatever they think you want to hear. — William That’s good to know, William. Next time I’m buying a car, I’ll tell the salesperson that I want to hear there are no payments due for the first 80,000 miles.
You’re right that it’s not easy for an average consumer to get accurate mechanical information. Most salespeople are not mechanics; most of them will have no earthly idea whether the car has a timing belt or a timing chain. But the guys in the parts department will. All you have to do is go to the parts desk, or call them up, and ask whether the year and make of the car you’re considering has a timing chain or a timing belt. If they don’t know off the top of their head, they’ll search their parts database for the belt, and if no belt comes up, they’ll look for a chain. Bingo! Cars have been going back to chains in recent years. Chains were once seen as less reliable and more complicated and expensive to replace if they did break. But they’ve figured out how to make them last the life of the car in most cases. And just because you asked, I looked it up and Honda Civics have had timing chains since 2005. Four-cylinder Accords have used chains since 2002. The only Accord that still uses a belt is the rare, sixcylinder version, which they claim should be changed at 100,000 miles. We wish you happy, timing-belt-free motoring, William.
Dear Car Talk: I recently bought a 2019 Toyota Camry. I knew that it did not have a CD player, nor was one available as an option. The salesperson assured me that I would By Ray Magliozzi be able to download all my CDs to a thumb drive and listen to them that way in the car. Well, that was a pipe dream! I have not figured out a way to do that efficiently, and Toyota’s Entune System (and its “directions”) is mystifying. My question is this: Is there any way to install an after-market CD player in this car? If not, is there any similar car out there that comes with a CD player? Thank you! — Janet Wow, you really like your CDs, Janet! You’re willing to dump a brand-new Camry just so you can listen to the Doobie Brothers. I admire that. But you won’t have to dump the Camry, Janet. First of all, we agree with you about Toyota’s “Entune” infotainment system. It’s miserably complicated, and lots of people have complained to us about how unintui-
AT SMOKIN’ BARRELS The pulled pork, brisket, ribs and other items available at Smokin’ Barrels (1215 Ocean Blvd., Rye, 967-4906, smokinbarrelsnh.com) are probably different from any other type of southern barbecue you’ve ever tasted on the Seacoast. That’s because co-owners Michael Ayotte and Shawn Crowley, who have also worked together at Cork N Keg Grill in Raymond, smoke all of their meats with aged oak whiskey barrels, giving them a unique flavor. They’ll often take it a step further by blending the oak with mesquite, applewood or cherrywood, and sometimes soaking the wood chips in bourbon and other types of alcohol. The eatery made its official debut late last month, offering sandwiches like pulled pork, smoked turkey, a burger, and brisket; entrees, like a half or a whole rack of St. Louis-style ribs; sides, like housemade potato chips (sour cream and onion, smoky maple or sea salt), potato salad, pasta salad and kohlrabi slaw; and a few breakfast sandwich options. Smokin’ Barrels has also begun booking for catered events this summer. The Scene recently caught up with Ayotte, who also formerly owned the french frybased Hot Potato Food Truck with his brother David, to talk about the concept of Smokin’ Barrels and some of his favorite dishes. How long has Smokin’ Barrels been around? We officially opened the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend, and we’ve been open every Friday, Saturday and Sunday since then. As of [June] 14th, we will be open full-time, probably 9 a.m. to 8 p.m., seven days a week. We smoke and cure some meats in house. Our plan is to take the idea of standard southern-style barbecue and to kind of just take it to the next level with a little bit more culinary finesse, so that it’s more than just a smokehouse that people are going to. What makes Smokin’ Barrels unique? From a flavor profile standpoint, I don’t know of anyone else who does oak smok-
ing. You’ll more likely see things like applewood or mesquite. We’re also playing around with blends for each meat and changing them up. I was fortunate enough to spend eight years in Toronto, which is definitely one of the culinary meccas of Canada, and there were so many amazing chefs I met there from different cultural backgrounds all over the world. It inspired my approach today to food and writing menus. I think about its culinary influence and try to come up with things I haven’t seen before. What is your personal favorite dish? The brisket. It’s so hard to perfect it and get it right because it’s all marbled through with different fats. On our menu we have
SEACOAST SCENE | JUNE 13 - 19, 2019 | PAGE 22

a brisket sandwich with a roasted jalapeno aioli that we make. There are two different parts that we treat and add together for the sandwich: the top part, which is called the point, is seared on the flat grill, and then the other part is the flat, which we slice fairly thick. Then we add barbecue sauce and crispy shallots, but just a little bit, because we want that brisket to be the hero of the sandwich. What is a dish everyone should try? Our ribs. They are St. Louis-style pork ribs that we dry rub, just like they do down south. We serve them with barbecue sauce on the side for dipping, so that the sauce does not take away from the meat.
What is an essential skill to running a restaurant? You’ve got to be able to handle chaos, swallow down your panic, put your head down and just go. It’s not easy to do that. You just have to either learn it or just have it.
What is your favorite part of being on the Seacoast? I love the idea of being practically across the street from the beach. We can look out the front window and almost see the water. I grew up around here, and really missed the beach when I was in Toronto, so as soon as we found this spot, I [couldn’t wait to] get right out on the beach. — Matt Ingersoll

While this spring has been so cool and wet, summer truly is around the corner, nd with summertime comes a whole lot of zucchini! Zucchini is, by far, the most prolific plant in my vegetable garden. It’s shocking at times how many zucchini I get from even just one plant. The very first year of my garden, I went overboard and crowded it like crazy. I ended up with more zucchini than the supermarket! When you have this much zucchini in your life, you have to be pretty creative about using it. Apparently I’m not the only one because there are some crazy recipes out there using zucchini. For example, do you know that you can make an incredibly tasting cobbler with zucchini? And no one will even know that they are eating a vegetable. A lady at our block party last year made one and it blew my mind! My favorite things to do with zucchini: 1. Make chips. I use my mandoline to slice the zucchini very thin. I lay the slices on parchment paper and roast in the oven at 3:50 for about 15 to 20 minutes. Experiment with the time and temperature for your own oven as these can be pretty finicky. 2. Grill them. Slice them or make spears, then toss them in olive oil and throw them on the grill. These are easy, especially when you are already grilling something like hamburgers or chicken. 3. Throw them in a shish kebab. Shish kebabs are amazing! You can make them with every meat- from pork to beef to chicken and you can even add in your own fruit. Pork and pineapple go really well, for example. So do chicken and mango. Zucchini chunks fit

nicely in any of the combinations I’ve tried. 4. Shred for baking. You can always freeze zucchini for later. Just do yourself a favor and measure the amount before you freeze it as the liquid gets a bit displaced. I usually freeze my zucchini in one cup increments. Obviously, you can make zucchini bread but trust me when I tell you zucchini is best in chocolate cake; it makes the moistest cake you’ve ever had. My mom recently brought out a zucchini casserole she had made as a side for one of our family meals. It was simple and different, and I could even imagine eating it for breakfast. This is certainly going on my list for this summer when I’m just in need of something different to do with all our zucchini. — Allison Willson Dudas Allison loves to bake and cook, and with three small (always hungry) children, she’s always trying something new.

A bouquet rosés
Celebrate the start of summer with wine
Clear bright rosé wines are a welcoming of warmer temperatures. Here are a few to try. Chateau Beauchêne Le Pavillon Côtes du Rhône, 2017 (regularly priced at $13.99, reduced to $8.99), which I recently reviewed, begins our “bouquet!” It is a blend of 40 percent Cinsault, 40 percent Grenache, 15 percent Mourvèdre, and 5 percent Syrah and can be sipped or paired with light lunches of salad and cheeses on the deck. Chateau Barbebelle Heritage Rosé, 2017 (regularly priced at $21.99, reduced to $19.99) is but another rosé from Provence. This wine is different from the another Barbebelle I reviewed recently as it is a blend of 40 percent Grenache, 40 percent Syrah, and 20 percent Cabernet Sauvignon. This wine has a powder pink color of white peaches. Its nose is full of
roses and strawberries. On the palate are floral notes of roses and pear. This is a very elegant rosé from one of the oldest vineyards of Aix en Provence, appropriate for those special moments. This is a wine to be enjoyed with shellfish, grilled and served simply. Jaboulet Côtes du Rhône Parallel 45, 2017 (priced at $14.99) is sourced from the 45th North parallel, which runs but two kilometers from the domaine’s cellars. This blend, begun in 1950, is sourced from two family vineyards, practicing biodynamic farming, located along the right bank of the Rhône. The vines, 50 percent Grenache, 40 percent Cinsault, 10 percent Syrah are 20 years old. This wine has an attractive salmon pink color; the nose is intense with very ripe berries. On the palate, there is an ample note of tart red berries, with a very dry and fresh

finish. This wine can be sipped, or paired with soft, young cheeses. Attems Pinot Grigio Ramato DOC, 2017 (regularly priced at $19.99, reduced to $9.99) is a wine not from Provence, but from the Republic of Venice, or Veneto, Italy. This wine is sourced from vineyards with soils of a sandy base of fractured limestone that are 50 meters above sea level. Ramato translates to “coppery”, the color of the Pinot Grigio when in vinification, the must remains in contact with the skins of the grape for about 10 hours, giving the wine a beautiful rose hue. This wine boasts a rich, complex bouquet of crisp fruity notes including white peach, and cantaloupe, followed by blackberry, with an intriguing hint of wild flowers. On the palate the wine is enveloping with a pleasant acidity and long mineral finish of red fruits. This wine can be paired

from the bandstand Annarosa’s Sounds Hampton Falls hosts Concerts on the Common

The Friends of the Hampton Falls Bandstand are kicking off their summer concert series Thursday, June 20, with the Journey tribute band Great Escape performing from 6:30 to 7:45 p.m. After that, there are nine more consecutive Thursday evening concerts planned (they all start at 6:30 p.m.), along with two Tuesday night concerts, July 2 and July 23, starting at 6 p.m. Every concert takes place in the Hampton Falls Common on the main bandstand with free admission and an open invitation to all. The Friends of the Hampton Falls Bandstand, a nonprofit organization, was created with a very specific goal in mind: “To bring community, arts [and] music to the town common in Hampton Falls,” said Karen Sabatini, the treasurer of the Friends of the Bandstand. Sabatini said this was the main focus of Lyn Stan, the president of the organization, when she created it in 2016 in hopes of uniting the townspeople with music and art. Four years later, the Friends of the Bandstand are continuing to reach this goal with their biggest seasonal attraction, the Concerts on the Common series. As well as supplying live music, Sabatini said, three of this year’s concerts (June 27, July 18 and Aug. 1) are also Cool Wheels events. Cool Wheels was created by the Friends of the Bandstand to encourage more people to come out to the weekly concert — and on these occasions to bring their vehicles along with them. Sabatini said that this is their third year doing Cool Wheels and that they’ve managed to attract people from as far away as Boston and Maine with their relaxed take on a car show. “We don’t discriminate [amongst vehicles]; we welcome everybody,” Sabatini said. “So if they have a really cool motorcycle, if they have a really cool truck, car, we certainly welcome them.” The Concerts on the Common’s two biggest events of the summer may just be their Independence Day celebrations, with a concert on Tuesday, July 2, showcasing the 39th Army Band and a concert on Thursday, July 4, featuring the U.S. Coast Guard Band coming from Connecticut. Sabatini said that the Coast Guard performance is looking to be a big one, with an estimation of “probably 3,000 people” for the event, in comparison to their normal crowd of between 100 and 200 people. “They haven’t played locally in New Hampshire probably in about 12 years,” Sabatini said of the Coast Guard Band.

“We’re expecting a pretty big draw and we’re hoping to get Gov. Sununu to introduce that band or another dignitary, perhaps somebody from the Coast Guard.” Sabatini explained that while many towns and organizations throw outdoor concerts come summertime, the Concerts on the Common takes a slightly different approach with their embrace of cultural diversity and education. “We’ve had a Japanese drum band, we’ve had Latin bands coming in, Cuban bands,” Sabatini said, “so we’re trying to do a little bit of different types of [music] — educational as well.” This summer, the Friends of the Bandstand are welcoming the Mariachi Mexico Lindo Band, on Aug. 15, as well as a Jamaican rapso band, Jah Spirit, on their annual Jamaican Appreciation Day on Aug. 22. For Aug. 15, the Friends of the Bandstand were able to bring in Margaritas from Exeter to do food for the event, and on Jamaican Appreciation Day (their last concert every summer), they read aloud their Jamaican Proclamation that “recognizes our Jamaican community in Hampton Falls,” said Sabatini. Along with their embrace of cultural bands, the Friends of the Bandstand have four tribute bands slated to perform this summer: Great Escape, a Journey tribute band, on June 20; Studio 2, a Beatles
tribute band, on June 27; Chicago Total Access, a Chicago tribute band, on July 18; and the Eagles Experience, an Eagles tribute band, on Aug. 1. Three of these bands (excluding Studio 2) are new to the Concerts on the Common series, which isn’t the only new element Sabatini said the Friends of the Bandstand are bringing to the table this summer. In past years, Sabatini said, they have had people barbecuing for them on the town common, but this year they have several food trucks and restaurants scheduled to roll in on Thursday nights. Along with Margaritas from Exeter, they have the Fat Belly BBQ food truck, Boogalows Island BBQ food truck and several other food establishments planning on serving the Thursday evening concerts. Sabatini said that what the Friends of the Hampton Falls Bandstand are trying to build with their Concerts on the Common series is a communal space where you can “just unwind after a busy day, hear some great music, talk to people and grab dinner.” “It’s something fun for them to do in the summer,” Sabatini said. “After a hard day, a long day at work, they can come over and sit on the common. … And they get to see some cars they could only dream about.” Visit hamptonfallsbandstand.com. — Caleb Jagoda

The American Century Dustbowl Revival rolls through the years In the mid-2000s, Zach Lupetin took a University of Michigan writing degree to Southern California chasing screenplay dreams, but he also brought his guitar. Being in a band was “always the static in the back of my head,” Lupetin told a writer in 2013. A Craigslist ad for like minds became Dustbowl Revival, a multi-instrument, multi-genre band with eight core players that would swell to a 20-plus member collective of musicians, all focused on acoustic Americana. For Lupetin it represented a chance to write the story of an epoch — one you can dance to. Over four albums beginning with 2010’s You Can’t Go Back to the Garden of Eden, Dustbowl Revival has charted the course of 20th-century roots, blues and folk music, winding from Appalachia to New Orleans
to, most recently, Muscle Shoals soul and R&B. In a recent interview, Lupetin said his band will keep following the thread into rock ’n’ roll with a new record due in the coming months. “I started writing songs with this group … as more of a folk gospel and blues project, focusing on pre-World War II stuff, with swing and bringing in the New Orleans horns,” he said. “As we evolved through the American century, we started adding some of the rock ’n’ roll spirit and ’60s and ’70s funk. It’s been really fun to play with a lot of different styles and make our own sound, an Americana Soul thing. It’s always changing, to be honest.” The band’s last two albums were released by stellar indie label Signature Sounds, and the new disc enlists a producer who’s associated with its most successful act.

Kassirer oversaw Lake Street Dive’s breakthrough album Bad Self Portraits, playing keyboards in addition to twirling the knobs. That’s something he also did with Dustbowl. “He came at it as a musician producer … helping us write the songs, which was a really new thing for us,” Lupetin said. “It’s always a bit scary when you have new songs that you’ve never played live and you’re going right to the studio; there’s an excitement and a freshness.” 2017’s self-titled album was produced by Ted Hutt, who won a Grammy for Old Crow Medicine Show’s Remedy and is a founding member of Flogging Molly. Working with high-profile producers coincided with a sharpened focus for the band. “On the last record and this one we’ve started to check the BS more and really write songs that are true and honest,” Lupetin said. “There’s some fun harmony dance songs, but also some really darker story songs about stuff that you’re going through as you’re getting older. That was a cool thing we’ve been trying to lay down musically for years, and I think we finally did it with this one.” It’s yet another evolution for a band that’s defined by change. “Dustbowl Revival has always been an
adventurous musical group, because we’ve never been content to pigeonhole ourselves,” Lupetin said, adding that listeners can call it whatever they choose. “I would say sometimes it’s hard to describe your own musical style at this point. It’s up to the audience to decide what music we’re playing.” Ultimately it’s as much about what they’re doing as how it sounds. “I see myself more as a storyteller than a band leader [and] I want to be able to tell stories through this visceral musical medium,” Lupetin said. “Where we can bring it down, create some darker dynamics to tell stories, get people thinking and really participating in a whole night of music, that’s special for me … a whole array of music, not one thing thrown in your face over and over. We try to mix it up, take the audience on a journey.” — Michael Witthaus Dustbowl Revival with Aubrey Haddard When: Wednesday, June 19, 8 p.m. Where: 3S Artspace, 319 Vaughan St., Portsmouth Tickets: $18 members, $20 advance at 3sarts.org

It’s come to this
The Pokemon Co. has made Japanese brides’ dreams come true with its announcement that it is collaborating with a wedding planner to offer sanctioned ceremonies with its characters in attendance, dressed as a bride and groom. Yes, Pikachu will stand up with you and your betrothed (as long as you go to Japan to tie the knot), and the icing on the cake is Pokemon-themed food items and a Pikachu cake topper. Finally, United Press International reports, for your scrapbook, you’ll have a marriage certificate decorated with Pokemon imagery — surely an item you’ll want to preserve in a licensed Pokemon photo frame.

Around 1:40 a.m. on May 9, as an unnamed Cocoa, Florida, homeowner slept in her garage, a black Cadillac crashed into the structure, missing her by only inches, according to the 911 call. The Cadillac was stolen, it turns out, and was fleeing an Orange County Sheriff’s Office patrol vehicle — which was also stolen and being driven by someone impersonating a police officer. After the crash, WFTV reported, the imposter patrolman continued trying to pull over vehicles before speeding away. The patrol SUV was later abandoned behind a shopping plaza in Cocoa.
Least competent criminal
Police in Lincoln, Nebraska, responded to a call on May 21 about a domestic assault. They didn’t find the suspect, identified as Markel Towner, 26, in the residence, but someone who matched his description was sitting outside in a car. When questioned, the man said his name was Deangelo Towns, but a fashion faux pas led officers to suspect he was lying — a lanyard around the man’s neck clearly bore the name “Markel Towner.” After some resistance, KETV reported, Towner was finally subdued and arrested on a variety of charges.
An unidentified man in Tuscumbia, Alabama, did what so many of us do every day: He went online to Amazon to order some household items. But when his package arrived on May 23, he was alarmed to discover a urine sample from a private citizen, not the shower curtain and rings he’d ordered. “When I reached in and pulled it out (it was) some kind of urine specimen or something like that,” he told WHNT. An Amazon representative said the company was “very sorry” about the mistake and would send his bathroom accessories right away, but declined to have him return the sample.
• May 17 wasn’t the first time Dan Smith of Seattle found a Car2Go vehicle left in the driveway of his rental property, so he erected a fence around it and posted NO TRESPASSING signs and other warnings. He then informed Car2Go’s parent company, Share Now, that he wanted $65 per day for storage, $300 for the fence and $500 for harassment. Share Now responded to inquiries from KIRO saying seven different customers tried to rent the car a day after it was left in Smith’s driveway but couldn’t because of the barricade. Asad Rasheed, who lives in Smith’s building, said the errantly parked vehicles are a common problem: “People are not made aware of where to park, where not to park and how to use them,” Rasheed said. Share Now has agreed to work with Smith but told the TV station they wouldn’t be paying him. • Damon Hudson, 25, of St. Ives, England, first noticed his missing milk delivery on May 17. “My milk delivery means the world to me. My little brother and sister can’t function without their cereal in the morning,” Hudson told Metro News. He could see the thief on his doorbell video footage, but he didn’t want to bother the police with such a trivial case, so after two weeks of going milk-less, he set up his own sting. Hudson introduced a couple of new ingredients in the milk bottle: fish oil and his own urine. “Hopefully that’s the end. The weirdo deserves it.” No word on whether the thief has found a new target.

Beachgoers looking to make a statement this summer will want to check out the Jeado, a Speedo-style swimsuit brief for men that looks like it’s cut from a pair of jeans, but is really made of polyester and Spandex, for comfort and quick drying.

PET OF THE WEEK This is the second time we’ve highlighted Rask as Pet of the Week — he really deserves a good home! He’s a 5-year-old German Shepherd Mix and his only goal is to find a family to love. Rask is a delightful blend of fun and frolic, full of energy and smart. While Rask is overjoyed to have someone enter his kennel to go for a walk, he immediately goes to sit on command when it’s time to leash up. He’s a good boy, and a good-looking one, too. Rask would do best as the only animal in his forever home, although he walks calmly with quiet dogs at the shelter. He’s never lived with children, and likely would do best in an adults-only quiet home. Rask originally was on a rescue transport from an overcrowded shelter. We’d like his next destination to be a forever home committed to letting him expend his energy, ideally in a fenced-in yard, then rest in a calm setting. He’s a friendly guy when he gets to know you. Like all the animals available for adoption at the New Hampshire SPCA in Stratham, Rask is neutered, microchipped and up to date on all his shots. Visit nhspca.org.
