Mixed report for Lee EDITORIAL Mayor Ed Lee’s first big decision — the appointment of a District 5 supervisor — demonstrated something very positive: The mayor knows that he can’t do what his predecessor did and ignore and dismiss the progressive community. His inauguration speech demonstrated something else: That he has no intention of being a mayor who takes on and defies the interests of downtown. Part of the reason Gavin Newsom was a failure as mayor is that he was constantly at war with the left. He ran the city as if his was the only way, as if there were no good ideas coming out of anywhere except his office — and as if anyone who disgreed with or voted against him was his enemy. That didn’t work, and it doesn’t seem to be Lee’s style. He was under pressure to appoint a supervisor who would go along with him on key votes, but he also knew that a moderate or a lackey would deeply offend the voters in D5, who supported John Avalos for mayor and remain among the most progressive voters in the city. The choice of Christina Olague shows a willingpicks

less to accept that progressives play a significant role in San Francisco politics. (It also shows that he is better than any mayor in recent memory at keeping a secret — nobody outside of his inner circle had any idea who his choice was until he announced it Jan 9.) Olague was, overall, a solid planning commissioner, and has the potential to be an good supervisor. But she will need to make clear from the start that she is representing the district, not the person who gave her the job. Because on some of the key issues that will come before the board this spring, her constituents are well to the left of the mayor. If she can’t vote against his wishes, she’ll have trouble in November. Olague also needs to be sure that some of the issues her predecessor, Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi, championed (public power and community policing, for example) don’t fall by the wayside. Her expertise in land use issues should be helpful as the board wrangles with waterfront development, affordable housing and the giant California Pacific Medical Center hospital project.

Bikes and sailboats By Leah Shahum OPINION I’m not much of a sailor. In fact, I’ve been known to turn more than a little green when venturing out on the bay under sail. So it may seem a little odd that I am excited about the America’s Cup regatta coming to San Francisco. This high-profile international yacht race has the potential to accomplish even more impressive feats on land than on water, ultimately leaving a legacy of safer streets and more accessible neighborhoods. An anticipated five million spectators will put the city’s transportation infrastructure to the test. It starts this summer with the qualifying races, then ramps up in summer, 2013, when upward of a half million people are expected to travel to the waterfront on peak race days. There’s no possible way to move all of these people around this tightly packed city in cars. For proof, talk to anyone who’s been near the waterfront during Fleet Week, a traffic nightmare at a fraction of the size of the America’s Cup. The Mayor’s Office plan for the CONTINUES ON PAGE  >>

It’s hard for California cities to raise taxes. Almost anything that amounts to a tax hike has to go before the voters, and most of the time, it requires a two-thirds vote. But in a year when the local legislators are also up for election — and six of the supervisorial districts are up this fall — the voters can pass taxes with a simple majority. That’s one reason that 2012 is a perfect year for tax reform in San Francisco. The other is the spirit of Occupy. The tent-city protests changed the political dynamics all over the country, putting the message of economic injustice on the agenda and on the front pages. That’s even more true in this city, which was one of the epicenters of the national movement. Mayor Ed Lee announced in his inauguration speech that he’s going to be the mayor “of the 100 percent,” an effort to preach the message that we’re all good pals and we all love each other here in this great city of ours, but the truth is we aren’t, and we don’t. The very rich in San Francisco not only have little in common with the rest of us; for the most part, they like it that way. The biggest corporations and wealthiest individuals have an interest in preserving economic injustice, and they’ve shown repeatedly that they will go to great lengths to prevent progressive change. San Francisco needs to change the way it raises revenue, and one of the key elements of that is the local business tax. Right now it’s a flat tax on payroll, and a lot of people (including me) don’t like it. So there’s movement for a new type of tax, maybe on gross receipts. That’s fine — but it has to be more than a shift in how taxes are determined. San Francisco desperately needs more money — probably at least $250 million a year — to balance the budget without further cuts and to make up for what the state and federal government have taken away. And a new business tax needs to be progressive — to hit the biggest and the richest harder than the small and struggling. I fear the mayor is not going to be pushing that kind of agenda, so someone on the board has to do it. This is the year that a “tax the one percent” measure can win. But we need to get started now. 2 january 11 - 17, 2012 / SFBG.com

Lee’s inaugural speech was mostly a typical political speech for a new mayor, but it contained a nugget that’s worthy of note. He proclaimed that San Francisco should be a “city of the 100 percent,� a takeoff on the Occupy movement’s 99 percent slogan. And while that’s mostly rhetoric, it’s also a sign that the former housing activist is not going to be a mayor who wants to make a legacy of challenging the economic and political powers of San Francisco. Working together is fine — but there are a small number of very wealthy and powerful people who have interests that are utterly opposed to the interests of the rest of us. Economic injustice is every bit as real in this city as it is elsewhere in the country — and that’s something the mayor didn’t even mention or acknowledge. Pacific Gas and Electric Co., that big real-estate developers, the landlords out at ParkMerced, the Chamber of Commerce and the Board of Realtors ... they don’t want to work together. They want their way. So it’s a mixed report for Mayor Lee — and over the next few months, he’s going to have to realize that everyone in the city can’t and shouldn’t work together, that there are battles where politicians have to take sides, and that all of us will be watching very closely to see where he draws the line. 2 bikes and sailboats CONT>>

America’s Cup wisely puts bicycle transportation front and center. Event planners and politicians know that traffic and parking constraints will preclude many from driving, and transit capacity can be stretched only so far so fast. Event organizers propose investing in a robust bike share program, park-and-ride lots where visitors can ditch their cars on the edge of the city and pedal the last few miles, and plenty of secure valet bike parking lots. The most important component is ensuring that the city also invests in safe, comfortable routes welcoming the wide diversity of people who will be trying out two wheels — people who are likely to continue biking long after the events if they have a good experience. A top priority must be the Embarcadero. Already an enormously popular — and overcrowded — bike route for locals and visitors, music listings

stage listings

the Embarcadero should be made more welcoming to the huge numbers of people who will be drawn there on bikes and by foot. On big event days, the plan calls for temporarily designating an existing travel lane as bicycle-only space and freeing up the pathway for walking — a more comfortable set-up for everyone. I urge city leaders to take advantage of this opportunity to pilot a permanent, dedicated bikeway on the waterside of the roadway — the EmBIKEadero. It’s a low-cost, easy way to reconnect people with the waterfront and offer an unparalleled biking experience. Imagine riding on a miniversion of Sunday Streets on the Embarcadero any day of the week. Imagine a New York City-style high line for S.F.’s waterfront, from Mission Bay to the Golden Gate Bridge. Imagine a way to connect diverse neighborhoods and draw people to local businesses...long after the yachts have left the bay. The city should also use the momentum behind the America’s Cup to test other opportunities for safe, more welcoming streets, including Polk Street, a major connector to the northern waterfront and already an important route for the growing number of people biking in San Francisco. Market Street should continue to be a site for innovation. Recent pilot programs prioritizing biking, walking, and transit are already proving to save bus riders time and the Muni system big dollars. The America’s Cup is our opportunity not only to stage a worldclass event, but to build toward a world-class bicycling city. 2 Leah Shahum is executive director of the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition.

The latest draft map of proposed new supervisorial district will be the subject of public hearings over the next couple months. | Courtesy of Redistricting Task Force

this week at

borhood, which is now in District 9, would be included in District 11, while D9 would pick up the more liberal north Mission. That would make D9 an even safer progressive district — but make D11 harder for a progressive like the incumbent, John Avalos, to win. The task force has been holding hearings on each of the districts — but there’s been little discussion about how the new lines will affect the makeup of the board, and the politics and policy of the city, as a whole.

Redrawing the maps Obscure task force charged with creating new supervisorial districts could have a big impact on the city’s political landscape

Consolidating the left

By Tim Redmond and Steven T. Jones tredmond@sfbg.com, steve@sfbg.com The most important political change of 2012 may not be the appointment of a new District 5 supervisor or the inauguration of a new mayor and sheriff. A process moving slowly through a little-known city task force could wind up profoundly shifting the makeup, and balance of power, on the Board of Supervisors — and hardly anyone is paying attention, yet. The Redistricting Task Force is in the process of drawing new lines for the supervisorial districts, as mandated every 10 years when new census data is available. The nine-member body is made up of three appointees each by the board, the mayor and the Elections Commission. While mandated to draw equal-sized districts that maintain “communities of interest,” the board has almost unchecked authority to decide which voters are in which districts. While it’s difficult to draw 11 bad districts in San Francisco, it’s entirely possible to shift the lines to make it more difficult to elect progressives — something many groups out there are anxious to do. editorials

news

Downtown and pro-landlord groups are circulating their own draft maps, attempting to influence the outcome. Their goal is hardly a secret: If progressive voters can be concentrated in a small number of districts — say, districts 5, 6, and 9 — it’s more likely that a majority of the board will be moderates and conservatives. The task force has looked at 10 “visualizations” prepared by a consultant, and each of them had some alarming aspects. For example, the visualizations mostly pushed such conservative areas as Seacliff and Presidio Heights into District 1, which is represented by progressive Sup. Eric Mar. On Jan. 4, those drafts were replaced by a single working draft map, which is now on the task force’s hard-to-find website (sfgov2.org/index.aspx?page=2622) — and it’s not as bad as the earlier versions. The working draft keeps Seacliff and Presidio Terrace in District 2 — which share similar demographics. “The working families in the Richmond don’t belong in the same community of interest as the millionaires with homes overlooking the ocean,” Mar told us. But there are other changes that some may find alarming. The more conservative Portola neigh-

The driving force behind the changes in the districts is the rather dramatic population shift on the east side of the city. Most of the districts, census data show, have been relatively stable. But since 2000, 24,591 more people have moved into D6 — a nearly 30 percent increase — while 5,465 have moved into D10 (a 7.5 percent increase) and 5,414 into D11 (8.7 percent). D9 saw the biggest population decrease, losing 7,530 voters or 10.3 percent. The huge growth in D6 has been the result of a boom in new high-end condos in the Rincon Hill and SoMa neighborhoods, and it’s changed the demographics of that district and forced the city to rethink how all of the surrounding districts are drawn. No matter what scenario you look at, D6 has to become geographically smaller. Most of the maps circulating around suggest that the north Mission be shifted into D9 and parts of the Tenderloin move into districts 3 and 5. But those moves will make D6 less progressive, and create a challenge: The residents of the Tenderloin don’t have a lot in common with the millionaires in their high-rise condos. As progressive political consultant David Looman noted, “The question is, how do you accommodate both the interests and concerns of San Francisco’s oldest and poorest population and San Francisco’s youngest, hippest, and very prosperous population?” The working map is far from final. By law, the population of every district has to be within 1 percent of the median district population, or up to 5 percent if needed to prevent dividing or diluting the voting power of minority groups and/or keeping established neighborhoods together. Under the current draft, eight of the 11 districts are out of commusic listings

pliance with the 1 percent standard, and District 7 has 5.35 percent more residents than the mean, so it will need to change. But task force Chair Eric McDonnell told the Guardian that he expects the current map to be adopted with only slight modifications following a series of public meetings over the next couple months. “The tweaks will be about how we satisfy the population equalization, while trying to satisfy communities of interest,” McDonnell said, noting that this balancing act won’t be easy. “I anticipate everyone will be disappointed at some level.”

Outside influences? Some progressives have been concerned that downtown groups have been trying to influence the final map, noting that the San Francisco Board of Realtors, downtown-oriented political consultants David Latterman and Chris Bowman, and others have all created and submitted their own maps to the task force. McDonnell said the task force considered solutions proposed by the various maps, but he said, “We won’t adopt wholesale anyone’s maps, but we think about what problem they were trying to solve.” For example, some progressive analysts told us that many of the proposals from downtown make D9 more progressive, even though it is already a solidly progressive seat, while making D8 more conservative, whereas now it is still a contestable district even though moderates have held it for the last decade. “It would be nice to see the Mission in one district, but it makes D8 considerably more conservative, so it’s a balancing act,” said Tom Radulovich, a progressive activist who ran for D8 supervisor in 2002. Latterman told us he has a hard time believing the final map will be substantially similar to the current draft. “Once that gets circulated to the neighborhoods, I find that hard to believe it won’t change,” he said. “A lot of the deviations are big and they will have to change.” He said that he approached the process of making a map as a statistician trying to solve a puzzle, and that begins with figuring out what to do with D6. “I fall back on my technician skills more than the political,” Latterman, who teaches political science at the University of San Francisco, said. “It’s a big puzzle.” CONTINUES ON PAGE  >>

Claude sidi,

.BZPS-FFSFBDIFTPVUUPQSPHSFTTJWFTÂąCVUXJMMUIBUDPOUJOVF By Steven t. JoneS In his inaugural address on Jan. 8, and then again the next day as he appointed progressive Christina Olague to the District 5 seat on the Board of Supervisors, Mayor Ed Lee signaled an intention to bring all sides together to solve vexing city problems, from job creation to the need for more affordable housing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At its best, San Francisco is a city for everyone,â&#x20AC;? Lee said at his inauguration. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are a city for the 100 percent.â&#x20AC;? But that analysis, with his clever riff off of the Occupy movementâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 99 percent paradigm, masks deep political divisions and challenges that will likely play out repeatedly this year, particularly as he partners with a handful of wealthy individuals and corporations â&#x20AC;&#x201D; members of the 1 percent, on which he lavished praise during his speech, such as venture capitalist Ron Conway â&#x20AC;&#x201D; to craft his economic agenda. Lee stressed his focus on creating private-sector jobs and his acceptance that â&#x20AC;&#x153;local government will have to do more with less,â&#x20AC;? while arguing that he can create broad prosperity by embracing high-tech innovations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re poised to invent the future, right here and right now,â&#x20AC;? he said, shortly before interrupting his speech to post an employment infographic on Twitter.

The next day, after she was sworn in as supervisor representing one of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most progressive districts (replacing Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi), Olague echoed Leeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s focus on job creation and the belief that â&#x20AC;&#x153;itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to roll up our sleeves to get things doneâ&#x20AC;? in a fashion that transcends ideology. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think this is an incredible time for our city and a time when we are coming together and moving past old political pigeonholes,â&#x20AC;? Olague said, while Lee said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is not about counting votes, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best for San Francisco and her district.â&#x20AC;? Yet that optimistic spirit alone wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t provide for the renters and low-income homeowners being squeezed out of this gentrifying city, battles that both fought as activists â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Olague with the Mission Anti-Displacement Coalition, Lee with the Asian Law Caucus â&#x20AC;&#x201D; before joining city government. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We both came from backgrounds fighting for the rights of tenants and immigrants,â&#x20AC;? Lee said. At his inauguration, he said he would take on that challenge directly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to create a permanent stream of revenue to fund housing in San Francisco,â&#x20AC;? Lee said, announcing the formation of a working group to craft a measure for the November ballot that would create a â&#x20AC;&#x153;permanent housing trust fundâ&#x20AC;? to help

Olague listed her top priorities as job creation, affordable housing, helping shepherd redevelopment projects after the state abolished redevelopment agencies, and public safety. And she pledged to be an independent vote: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every decision will be based on whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best for my constituents and the people of San Francisco.â&#x20AC;? Progressive political leaders were nonetheless thrilled with the choice. While Olague was an early supporter of Leeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mayoral bid, she has deep roots in the progressive community and was a consistently good vote during her eight years on the Planning Commission. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am surprised by the choice, but I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good one,â&#x20AC;? Matt Gonzalez, the former D5 supervisor who appointed Olague to the commission, told us. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an appointment that recognizes that D5 is the most progressive district in the city.â&#x20AC;?

Capitalizing on the Auld Mug

Lawsuit alleges America’s Cup organizers unfairly rejected African American sailing team and breached trustee duties by self-dealing By Rebecca Bowe news@sfbg.com The latest America’s Cup controversy arose with a complaint filed in state court in New York City on Dec. 12, alleging that the Golden Gate Yacht Club (GGYC), defender of the coveted sailing trophy and orchestrator of the prestigious international regatta in San Francisco, unfairly rejected an African American sailing team’s bid to compete as a defender candidate. In a move that piqued the interest of close observers in the sailing world, the suit also takes things a step farther by challenging the legitimacy of including lucrative waterfront development deals into GGYC’s December 2010 agreement to host the 34th America’s Cup in San Francisco. The suit invokes a 159-year-old document, the America’s Cup Deed of Gift, drafted after the schooner America won the treasured Cup — affectionately known as the Auld Mug — in a match off the coast of England in 1851. Executed under the laws of New York since the schooner sailed under the New York Yacht Club, the deed establishes the America’s Cup trust, and sets out guidelines that every recipient of the cup must abide by. The suit holds that accepting the cup made GGYC a trustee under the deed, and “each club holds the Cup as ‘trustee for the benefit of all potential challengers.’ ” Because GGYC set up its own America’s Cup Event Authority, which stands to profit from San Francisco real-estate development deals without sharing surplus revenue among competitors, the lawsuit charges that the yacht club violated its fiduciary duties as trustee. “It is clear that GGYC is strictly forbidden from using its possession of the Cup and its attendant duties as trustee ... in a manner that directly benefits itself, any of its members, or any third party,” asserts the complaint, filed by Madison Avenue law firm McDermott Will & Emery LLP. “The law strictly prohibits self-dealing by a trustee.”

his skills as a mariner under former America’s Cup sailors and continues to pursue an ambitious dream. Kithcart says he’s convened a sailing team to compete in the America’s Cup that includes African American Olympian sailors, and held discussions with a prominent Rhode Island yacht designer, David Pedrick, about constructing a qualifying vessel for his team. Pedrick, who’s designed America’s Cup racing yachts before, confirmed to the Guardian that he was willing to work with ADM. GGYC accepted and later refunded ADM’s $25,000 application fee, but rejected the nonprofit’s proposal to enter the race, saying it wasn’t satisfied Kithcart’s team would have the necessary resources to compete. Kithcart claims to have a fundraising strategy for his America’s Cup bid ready to go, but his anticipated support appears to hinge upon being accepted as an America’s Cup competitor. “You create a groundswell with the public,” he said. “This is the essence of our organization: It’s going to excite people’s imagination. Money can be generated, and there are people who will fund things.” Kithcart’s vision extends beyond just racing in the elitist tournament, since that alone “doesn’t fulfill any of the social needs that are not only apparent, but glaring.” ADM’s mission, he explained, is to train African American youth as competitive sailors, cultivate youth interest in math and science as it applies to nautical skills, and make a splash on the world stage by breaking into a predominantly white sport with a black-led team, á la the Jamaican bobsledders from the film Cool Runnings. “We can really create inspired minds,” Kithcart said, enthusiastically describing field trips through church youth groups or Boys & Girls Clubs that would educate kids about the history of black mariners and offer the empowering experience of learning to helm a ship. “Our future is the youth.” Moreover, a yacht-building team would be a jobcreation engine in tough economic times, he asserted. The once-debt-plagued GGYC — which rocketed to sailing stardom after billionaire Oracle CEO Larry Ellison joined up, installed his crew picks

members on the board, and clinched the 33rd America’s Cup with his Team Oracle Racing off the coast of Valencia, Spain in 2010 — has approved competitors from France, Spain, Italy, New Zealand, Sweden, China, and Korea for the 34th America’s Cup. The main event, a one-on-one match following all preliminary rounds, is to be held in San Francisco in the summer of 2013. The foreign teams are known as challengers, but ADM applied to sail as a defender candidate — a U.S. team that would race against Team Oracle in a Defender Series in a bid to represent the U.S. in the 34th America’s Cup. Under the race protocol drafted by the winners of the 33rd America’s Cup and an Italian team that has since withdrawn as the challenger of record, GGYC stated that it would consider applications from defender candidates. However, it would only accept “those it is satisfied have the necessary resources ... and experience to have a reasonable chance of winning the America’s Cup Defender Series.” Had GG YC accepted ADM’s application to compete, Kithcart’s African American led team would have sailed against Ellison’s Team Oracle crew — a spectacle Kithcart imagines would make fine fodder for national television broadcasts. He remains optimistic that it can happen. “We’re definitely going to get into the America’s Cup,” he told the Guardian in a recent telephone conversation. That same confidence is conveyed in ADM’s lawsuit. “Indeed, ADM’s application showed that its proposed team quite obviously could beat Team Oracle Racing,” the complaint claims, “and certainly stood a ‘reasonable chance’ of doing so.” The lawsuit alleges that GGYC ignored Kithcart’s repeated requests to be considered for entry into the competition almost until the deadline last spring, then rejected ADM on an arbitrary and unequal basis compared with its treatment of other competitors. Three other teams that were accepted as competitors — including Club Nautico di Roma, the challenger of record — have since withdrawn, citing financial problems. The suit suggests these economically

troubled teams were accepted as competitors without question even while ADM was rejected, and charges that GGYC made no attempt to determine the status of ADM’s team or fundraising plan. What it all adds up to, according to ADM’s claim, is breach of contract and a failure to deal in good faith as a trustee. Nor is ADM shy about making demands. The lawsuit asks the court to compel GGYC to accept ADM’s application, reschedule all the planned races in order to hold a Defender Series, cancel the development rights afforded to the Event Authority, and pay ADM in excess of $1 million to compensate for the delay in building its yacht.

So much money John Rousmaniere, an America’s Cup historian who has authored several books about the sailing competition, regarded ADM’s case with skepticism. He seemed doubtful that GGYC could be forced to accept an application from a U.S. team. “Golden Gate could invite other U.S. yacht clubs to compete for the right to defend, but it has chosen not to do that. Instead, it’s developing its own boat and crew. This is their right under the Deed of Gift,” he said. “The Deed of Gift is very clear — there is no obligation for another American boat to sail.” He’s also dubious of the charge that GGYC breached its fiduciary duties as trustee by engaging in selfdealing, an argument that could have far greater consequences for film listings

Ellison in the long run. A similar dispute arose when the sailing tournament was held in New Zealand about a decade ago, he said, and the exact meaning of “trust” in the Deed of Gift has been debated before in similar arguments. “I don’t think it’s ever been resolved,” he added. The lawsuit argues that the cup is held in trust for the benefit of all competitors, and that GGYC violated its duties as a trustee when it set up a real-estate deal benefiting its own interests without sharing the wealth. Under the terms of the Host City Agreement, the America’s Cup Event Authority (ACEA) has the potential to lock in leases and longterm development rights for up to nine piers along the city’s waterfront for 66 years, with properties ranging from as far south as Pier 80 at Islais Creek to as far north as Pier 29, home of the popular dinner theater Teatro ZinZanni. The Event Authority is a California LLC, whose agent for service of process is listed as ACEA board chairman Richard Worth of Lawrence Investments LLC — a technology and biotechnology private equity investment firm controlled by Ellison. Under the protocol and in keeping with America’s Cup tradition, competitors will share in any “net surplus revenue” earned by the America’s Cup trust. However, this excludes the commercial and real estate rights granted to ACEA, the CONTINUES ON PAGE 10 >>

private entity controlled by Ellison, which is separate from the America’s Cup trust. “For the first time in America’s Cup history, it appears that valuable rights generated by a trustee as a result of holding the America’s Cup are being explicitly excluded from the Cup’s net surplus revenue and ... being held elsewhere, to the detriment of the competitors,” ADM’s suit alleges. Rousmaniere says this isn’t the first time a legal argument invoking the Deed of Gift has found its way into court amid an America’s Cup power struggle, and that the issue remains a point of debate. Part from the problem, he believes, stems from the fact that a 21st Century event is governed by a rather vague 18th century document. “The defender really runs the thing,” he said, referring to GGYC and by extension, the powerful Ellison. The question is, “How much authority is he going to give the challengers?” “These people have a lot of lawyers working for them,” Rousmaniere observed, referring to GGYC and Ellison’s Team Oracle Racing, which are closely related. “People are taking a big risk here, and they want to be protected. The stakes are so high because there’s so much money involved.” America’s Cup spokesperson Stephanie Martin referred Guardian inquiries to Tom Ehman, Vice Commodore of GGYC, who communicated with Kithcart about ADM’s application to compete. Ehman, who was taking a holiday in Spain, did not return an email request for comment and could not be reached by phone. However, a statement attributed to GGYC appeared on the blog Sailing Anarchy, which published a report about ADM’s suit. “GGYC was served today with a complaint filed in the Supreme Court, County of New York, alleging breach of fiduciary duty, among other baseless claims,” the statement noted. “We believe the lawsuit is utterly without merit and that GGYC will prevail.” Kithcart, meanwhile, is keeping his eye on the prize. “We need to excite our youth and then stand back and get out of the way and see what they create,” he said. “I’m betting they’ll make a movie about this. I’m betting there’ll be books about this. I’m betting this is history. We’re going to be a story.” 2 10 SAN FRANCISCO BAY GUARDIAN

Obstructions of justice Controversial arrests of OccupyOakland participants raise civil liberties concerns By Yael Chanoff yael@sfbg.com The uneasy relationship between OccupyOakland and the Oakland Police Department has resulted in a troubling spate of controversial arrests recently. At a press conference last month, Police Chief Howard Jordan stated, “The plaza area outside of City Hall is a public area. We do not have any legal right to remove you if you’re standing there, at any time during the day, if you’re exercising you’re First Amendment rights. If you’re not breaking the laws, we’re not concerned about your presence.” But now, Oakland police have arrested dozens of people who were doing little more than “standing there, exercising their First Amendment rights” — and one man even faces life in prison for it. There have been 40 arrests in the last couple weeks, including two incidents at Frank Ogawa/Oscar Grant Plaza. In each episode, police say they were just doing their job, enforcing laws surrounding permit violations. But many supporters and lawyers associated with OccupyOakland say that police have created a targeted and discriminatory campaign to wipe out the movement.

Vigil turns violent About 100 protesters were present at a permitted vigil on Dec. 30. An OccupyOakland participant had been issued a permit for a teepee and one table, but police showed up at noon to explain that they were in violation of that permit, editorials

claiming people were sleeping, eating, bringing in trash cans, and storing belongings in the teepee Protesters say they were cleaning up the plaza when police started making arrests; police say they refused to comply. But both parties say that the scene turned violent. “Who instigates the violence? I don’t know,” Matt Perry, a movement supporter, told us. “A cop tells you to back up and you don’t back up, he’s gonna use his baton on you.” But many of the arrests and citations had nothing to do with assault. Carly says she was arrested for “having a yoga mat under her arm.” She was later charged with obstruction of justice. In an even more puzzling case, 23-year-old Tiffany Tran was arrested and charged with “lynching.” “The taking by means of a riot of any person from the lawful custody of any peace officer is a lynching,” reads California Penal Code 405a, a felony charge punishable by two to four years in prison. The law attempts to prevent white mobs from forcibly taking African Americans from police custody to kill them, but police have a history of using it against protesters, stating that anyone trying to stop an arrest is guilty of lynching. Tran says she was held in a pitch-dark police van for seven hours before she was booked at Santa Rita Jail, where she was held in 22-hour daily lockdown due to overcrowding. She was held for four days without being told why. On the fourth day, she was finally arraigned, but prosecutors

When I arrived at 10pm on Jan. 4 to investigate the situation at the vigil, the scene was calm. About 40 people sat and talked, a few worked on computers. “Some of the people here were arrested mainly for contempt of cop, or being against the government. And then charges of lynching or obstruction of justice were brought after the fact to substantiate an unlawful arrest, to allow the wheels of so-called justice to turn a few more times,” Svend La Rose, an ordained minister and member of OccupyOakland’s tactical action committee, said of the Dec. 30 arrests. Suddenly, the cry of “riot police!” rang out. Police cars had pulled up on 14th street, and a line of police exited. In unison, they started advancing, brandishing batons. Many who were at the scene grabbed their possessions and fled. Most just backed away as the cops advanced. A handful stood in front of the teepee, and were arrested on the spot. Twelve were arrested, including La Rose. Also arrested was Adam Katz, a photographer from the media committee who was documenting events. Katz said that police told him to back up, and when he complied and backed up “probably 50-60 feet,” he was still arrested. “I took one picture and I was told to back up,” he said. “I repeatedly asked ‘Back up to where?’ as an army of police pushed me out of the plaza. They said, ‘Back up behind the line.’ I kept saying, ‘What line? I don’t see a line.’ ” Then there’s Chris, another occupier arrested Jan. 4. According to Katz and other witnesses, Chris had already left the plaza and gone across the street when he was arrested for somehow delaying the police who were trying to clear the plaza.

Discretion On Jan. 7, OccupyOakland held an “anti-repression march,” claiming that recent arrests are an overt attempt to repress the movement. The National Lawyers Guild issued a statement demanding an end to the “ongoing violence, harassment, and unconstitutional arrests of Occupy Oakland protesters.” music listings

for more news content visit sfbg.com/politics “There is evidence that would go to show that they were targeting people based on First Amendment activity, and not for illegal activity,” said attorney Mike Flynn, president of the NLG-SF. “Police charged into the plaza and grabbed whoever they could, and also targeted selective people who withdrew and didn’t even linger there.” But OPD spokesperson Johnna Watson told us these arrests were perfectly legal. “The law allows us to use our discretion,” she said. A person’s history with the movement is factored into this discretion. Many of those Perry deems “regulars” are, according to the police, “repeat offenders.” As Watson said, “There may be knowledge of a past history, like a repeat offender. If an officer has knowledge that a crime is occurring, has occurred, or is about to occur, we have the right to issue a citation or arrest. If we have someone constantly continuing to break the law, we may not issue a citation.” In other words, involvement with this political movement can get people arrested who might otherwise not be. “That police have escalated their attacks on people is pretty disturbing. It looks like they really think they can drive this movement out of Oakland with violence and repression,” said Dan Siegel, a former legal advisor to Mayor Jean Quan who resigned over her handling of OccupyOakland. Siegel is now representing Marcel Johnson, aka Khali, one of the several protesters arrested Dec. 30, who faces life in prison. A homeless man who became an OccupyOakland regular, Khali was arrested when he tried to hold on to his blanket, which police wanted to throw away, saying that it was unpermitted property. While in jail, he was charged with felony assault on a police officer, his third strike. A protester called Black Angel who knows Khali said he was transformed by the movement. “He came here and found a family,” he said. “He was like, I’m going to protect this. It gave me some sense of myself.” But now, Siegel said, “He faces life in prison because of his status of being poor, homeless, and with mental health issues.” Juries may decide whether OccupyOakland defendants are guilty, but Siegel said the arrests aren’t just: “You still have to ask yourself, why are the police doing this when we have 100 unsolved murders in Oakland?” 2

ReefeR Sanity By Caitlin Donohue

heRBWiSe I’d been waiting for an excuse to interview Coral Reefer. We have made a habit at my house of following the Oakland waitress religiously on the social Interwebs. What will she be smoking out of today? (Oh please, please let it be the Hello Kitty bong.) Reefer, in all her penciledeyebrows, bleached blond, 23-year old glory, represents that new kind of celebrity: the self-made Twittergasm. A casual observer of her Stoney Sundays weekly YouTube updates might question her 8,700plus Twitter followers. At over one million views they are now hosted by a woman named Rosepants so Reefer can focus on other projects. She also specializes in naked bong shots, and endless shout-outs to her cannabis community (I am checking her feed as I write this: her most recent post is “Attention: @ heister07 is looking for fabric with cannabis prints or pot leaves on it. Anyone know where to look?”) But say what you will about her methods, Reefer’s finding ways to educate the masses on all things cannabis. Come for the side boob, stay for the updates on the government’s double standard dealings with marijuana. A recent blog post on Nugs News, her recently-created current events site, announced the dangers of Spice. “While patients and partygoers are seeking the soothing beneficial results of cannabis, they are greeted with a surprise blend of chemicals in each distribution,” she writes of the synthesized “cannabis” that recently stirred up a to-do in mainstream media. Raising the hue-and-cry over Spice was excuse enough, I reasoned, for a Coral Reefer edition of Herbwise. So finally, it is happy hour on Friday, and I have locked down Reefer’s first in-person interview, to be conducted in the little-known smoking lounge above the SoMa dispensary Green Door. I am late, but she has been a

productive stoner and offers me a pre-packed bong when I sit down. I immediately become too high to formulate insightful questions. This turns out not to be a problem, because despite her babely exterior, Reefer knows what she has to say and says it well. And she says it slowly, which is important for me in this particular moment because I’m being overwhelmed by the hum of the prodigious ventilation system and the intermittent interruptions by well-meaning grey-ponytailed men unused to seeing two young women unattended in the cannabis lounge. “Spice should be the realization that cannabis cannot be synthesized,” Reefer says. Often when cannabis-like substances are produced by artificial means, only one endocannabinoid is mimicked, which Reefer suspects is the reason behind some of the adverse side effects of Spice. These have been reported as heart attacks and psychotic episodes. It’s a lot to take in when you’re stoned, but even (especially) through the fog it’s clear that Reefer has a knack for explaining cannabis facts to potheads. Talk turns to politics, as talk with cannabis folk tends to do in this era of federal government crackdowns, and Reefer surprises me by saying that she doesn’t consider herself an activist, and does not plan on aligning herself more closely with formal patient advocacy organizations during the upcoming presidential election season. She thinks that her message is better off the way it is, independent, controlled only by herself, and capable of appealing to a broad swatch of cannabis users. Her Internet fans include many smokers who don’t identify with the patient’s right movement that has presented itself as the most visible face of marijuana advocacy. Says Reefer: “I don’t want to be preaching to the choir. My followers don’t consider themselves patients or recreational users. I feel like I’m reaching my own audience these days.” 2

cAreerS AND eDucATiON Wearing a neatly-pressed army uniform in his office at City College of San Francisco, Charles Moore tells a Guardian reporter that he is a warrior for education. Moore is the recruiter and outreach developer for the collegeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Extended Opportunity Program and Services (EOPS) ex-offender counseling program, Second Chance. His team struggles with the fate of underserved refugees from an expanding state prison population (at last count, comprised of 132,887 adults) and the budget cuts that have dug deep into universities and community colleges across California. Their battle? On a minuscule budget of $150,000 program staff must find a way to help ex-offenders break the incarceration cycle and get a college degree. And by most counts, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re winning. Second Chance is fueled by a surprising mix of personal experience, stretched resources, and a steadfast dedication to an underserved student population. It is one of very few such endeavors in the nation. Moore says one of the recurfood + Drink

ring problems that ex-offenders face in the school system are Rip Van Winkel moments, inevitable occurrences after years of incarceration. The most minute-seeming technological changes in the world â&#x20AC;&#x201D; an automatic-flush toilet for instance, or unfamiliar crosswalk signage â&#x20AC;&#x201D; have shaken advisees, sometimes enough to prompt drop-outs. This kind of culture shock is precisely what Second Chance works to combat, in addition to more traditional academic concerns. Staff wear a number of hats, answering studentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; questions about financial aid and programs of study. Peer counselors are also crucial to the program, students who have themselves matriculated with the help of Second Chance and are available to assist those with questions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a community college,â&#x20AC;? says Moore. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And we need to be in touch with our community.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Second Chance and EOPS really set up a model for similar programs throughout the state and the country,â&#x20AC;? says Juanita Gray, the program secretary. She has worked from its beginnings as Project Scorpio to the programâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 1981 refashioning under EOPSâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; then-director Bill Chin. music listings

Gray remembers the days when inmates would file off the Sheriff Departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bus and into EOPS, get their handcuffs unlocked, and complete student applications. Nowadays Second Chance, which boasted 120 students last year, sees ex-offenders arrive of their own accord, having already received essential information about the program in prison. Moore works within Bay Area neighborhoods to spread the word, but more often than not, prospective students seek him out. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The majority of our referrals come from word of mouth, from within the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s prison system. People move to the Bay Area for Second Chance,â&#x20AC;? he says. Many of the programâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s small staff have made it through both a prison sentence and a degree at City College. As Second Chance students they, like their current advisees, received book vouchers, Muni passes, a basic meal plan, priority registration, and advisory support on their journey towards a college degree. Moore is one of these graduates. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Those who work in the program are often â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;been there, done that,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x201D; we understand the struggle of stepping onto a college CONTINUES ON PAGE 14 >>

After one stint, he remembers, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I began to take a serious look at myself. I always had to start over again with nothing once I was released. Things had not changed in my environment.â&#x20AC;? But then he found Second Chance. Moore sees the program in stark terms: â&#x20AC;&#x153;education as an alternative to incarceration.â&#x20AC;? The programâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s staff and tutors say adjusting to a school environment is a major obstacle for exoffender-students. Jeffrey Masko, who volunteers with eight Second Chance participants each week, tutoring them in English and math, describes the basic challenges for students who are coming from prison time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;[Second Chance students] sometimes only have one shot, an hour at a library computer, to do their work,â&#x20AC;? says Masko. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For a lot of these students, there is no â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;laterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x201D; they have to do the work before they get on the bus home, or [maybe if] they have an hour before class [they can do it then].â&#x20AC;?

aPPeTiTe Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s true: the East Bay cocktail scene is growing by leaps and bounds lately, with a slew of new bars (many opened by San Francisco bar stars) popping up from Albany to Alameda. Two comfortable new hangouts just debuted Jan. 3, serving cocktails for the geek and casual imbiber alike. Both claim noteworthy bartenders covering various shifts. I spent an evening tasting through their menus. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an early peek at cocktail stand-outs at these two.

Situated in its own building â&#x20AC;&#x201D; with parking lot â&#x20AC;&#x201D; not far from Emeryvilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shopping center madness (and E-villeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s other shining bar beacon, Prizefighter, www.prizefighterbar.com, which opened at the end of 2011), Honor Bar serves gourmet pub food in a room glowing with vintage signs, a Creature from the Black Lagoon pinball machine, and granite red bar at the center of it all. After passing through an entrance lined with cigar signs, records, even a stuffed owl, grab a beer from a tub of ice. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all on the honor system, so ask a bartender to add it to your tab. (No surprise: this is already garnering early buzz). Cocktail menu quality was pretty much guaranteed under bar manager Alex Smith who came from SFâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Gitane. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve written about his exquisite drinks at Gitane few times, and was unsurprised to find his offerings at Honor Bar more casual but nonetheless sophisticated, easily exhibiting promise at this early date to be among the best cocktails in the East Bay.

Tequila, guajillo pepper-infused mezcal, Cocchi di Torino, Licor 43, and cinnamon bitters meld in a complex yet drinkable whole. The spirit of tiki hovers over but does not overwhelm the bourbonbased Bleeding Monarch. Passion fruit lends a tropical air, orgeat adds texture, balsamico amaro and Campari finish with deliciously bitter undertones. Black Sabbath is as badass as it sounds: Laphroiag Scotch dominates with a rough and tumble, smoky presence, given nuance by Averna, absinthe, and orange bitters. Smithâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s established skill with sherry shows in Jenkinsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Ear, highlighting oloroso sherry with aged rum, Angostura bitters and cardamom-spice properties of Hum liqueur â&#x20AC;&#x201D; no element out of balance. Dessert with a savory essence can be had in a Winter Flip.

Each Saturday a new menu of cocktails is created using ingredients from the big Grand Lake Farmers Market a block away. Summer-Jane Bell not only created the menu but was handson with space design elements, painting stars as she crafted the menu. Her winning bartender team includes Yael Amyra (Circolo, Burritt Room), Ian Adams (15 Romolo, Orson), David Ruiz (Mr. Smith), and Morgan Schick (Nopa, Michael Mina). Bellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s menu is decidedly playful, reminiscent of American childhood... but with booze. The festive theme starts as you receive Chinese take-out boxes of fresh-popped popcorn, while bites of mini sliders and grilled cheese sandwiches are passed around. I had the most fun with Mad Hatter ($10). Sailor Jerry rum and a spicy ginger soda are obvious mates, but the bright orange, creamy drink surprises with golden raisin puree and carrot juice. Bright and healthy, spice and sweetness (but not too much) make it a delightful alternative to an orange creamsicle. Gift Horse ($9) was probably the most balanced, making fine use of Haymanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Old Tom gin, which I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seen much on cocktail menus in awhile. Dolin Blanc vermouth and Bellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s winter bitters made with a tequila base, unfold in floral, dry layers with notes of cranberry and fennel from the bitters. Winter Sideshow ($11) offers the most spectacle, even if I prefer the former two drinks.

BrigHTEr dAyS By L.E. LEonE le.chicken.farmer@gmail.com CHEAP EATS Kayday, she doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t so much like it in Seattle, and this comes as no surprise to me. Or her. Or you, probably, if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever been there. If not, just go to weather.com and sample a 10-day forecast, any 10 days, this time of year. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll give you some idea what sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s up against. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a beautiful city with good coffee and, traditionally, strong music, but that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make it any kind of longterm livable for a sunny-dispositioned nature such as Kaydayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. This bodes well for the eventual re-existence of our band, which (to be fair) has been not only Seattled but New Orleansed into a pretty perpetual state of discontinuation. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have our day. Meanwhile, Kayday keeps coming down for the weekend. One time it was Thanksgiving. Just a day or two beforehand we were talking or texting and I said, not meaning much by it, â&#x20AC;&#x153;What are you doing for the holiday?â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oh, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You?â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Smoking a big fat turkey,â&#x20AC;? I said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In Berkeley.â&#x20AC;? Then, though it seemed like a long shot: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wanna come down and eat with us?â&#x20AC;? She did! Which impressed me, considering how hard it is to get city-side folks to cross the bridge for dinner. Kayday came back again just a few weeks after, in the meat of December, by which time the planet was so dang tilted folks up there had mold in their ears. Many had forgotten what daylight even looks like. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dark when she goes to work in the morning, Kayday said, and dark again by the time she comes home. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That sounds downright Germanic,â&#x20AC;? I said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What are you doing by way of anti-depressant?â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Plotting to move back to San Francisco,â&#x20AC;? she said. When sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s here, she goes for long runs in Golden Gate Park, which is known to fog over, too â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but apparently itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a different, more cheerful quality of fog. I believe it. Anyway, we went to LCX for dinner: me, her, and editorials

Hedgehog. LCX stands for Le Cheval um ... used to be. I guess. Because thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the situation here. What used to be Le Cheval in downtown Oakland is now Le Cheval a.k.a. LCX in downtown Oakland. Only a block away from where it was. What happened: about a year ago, after fifteen years at Clay and (I think) 10th, Le Cheval got evicted. Boo. Hiss. But, in the spirit of showmustgoonmanpersonship â&#x20AC;&#x201D; hooray â&#x20AC;&#x201D; they opened LCX, which is run by the old ownerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s son. There are still Le Chevals in Berkeley and Walnut Creek, but the downtown Oakland one is now this: this ... wine bar. With food. I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tell if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the same, because I hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been to the old Le Cheval in a long time, before they closed, but my sense is no. Yes. Maybe. Well, the only thing I recognized on our table was fried calamari, which was every bit as tender and delicious as I remembered from the old place. It came with a little bowl of salty peppery lemony dipping juice, which it didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really even need. Just a little. Perhaps not coincidentally, I also ordered bo luc lac, chunks of grilled tenderloin steak with green beans. And that came with the same salt-pepper-lemon dip. With or without which, the dish was fantastic: the meat was tender, rare, and garlicky, and the beans had real snap to them. Alas, my buds were not so lucky in their ordering. Kayday was OK with her beef with vegetables, but Hedgehog did not like her lemon grass beef. And I agree it was lame â&#x20AC;&#x201D; neither lemony nor grassy. I blame her misfortune on Lotus Garden, in the Mission, for making such an event out of their lemon grass chicken. Remember? It was so good that Hedgehog canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stop ordering lemon grass this and that, even when sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not at Lotus Garden. I know how that is. 2

Le Martyre de Saint Sébastien see thu/12

Wednesday 1/11 The Finches The Finches are keen on the sounds of the 1960s and ‘70s. While checking the band’s website recently, I found a couple of mixes that founding members Carolyn Pennypacker Riggs and Aaron Olson put together, comprised of songs by Harry Nilsson, Donovan, the Byrds, Joni Mitchell, and others. You might have been able to guess that they listened to some of those when writing their own songs. On the Finches’ most recent album, 2011’s On Golden Hill (their first in four years), there are smidgens of proto-punk, psychedelic rock, and singer-songwriter folk soaked in ‘60s sheen. But while the band may quote from the past, the music is for now, distinctly their own. (James H. Miller)

Thursday 1/12 Burnt Ones Though I’m not sure what it is about San Francisco that sparks the formation of retro garage-pop bands, I’m positive that Burnt Ones are doing it better than most. This trio laces sweet pop melodies with heavy reverb for some sweaty, good old fashioned fun. It’s been a while since Burnt Ones released its catchy debut LP Black Teeth & Golden Tongues (Roaring Colonel), yet it remains a staple in my rotation. Check out the addictive editorials

news

While there may not be anything explicitly French about this quartet of garage rockers from the Bay, the Baroque pop ménage they embrace along with their refined musical sensibilities suggests the French Cassettes are more quintessentially so than one might imagine. It’s a preference towards subtlety over excess, and an emphasis on the minutiae. A touch of strings here, a tinge of electric energy there, and a deep reserve of catchy hooks borrowed and reinvented from some of their forerunners in pop art. Think Kinks and Beatles, but more demure; The Shins but less morose. Their first EP Summer Darling came out last year and now the band starts the year off rocking ever-so-effortlessly at a divey venue in the Mission. (Courtney Garcia)

Thursday 1/12 “Le Martyre de Saint Sébastien” Here’s the stereotypical scandal in a nutshell: According to Roman Catholic legend, Saint Sébastien was martyred in the third century BCE during Emperor Diocletian’s persecution of Christians. First he was shot through with arrows (the homoerotic possibilities of a halfnaked youth being pierced many times while in religious ecstasy has not escaped centuries of artists), then he was clubbed to death. In 1911, French composer Claude Debussy, with Italian poet Gabriele d’Annunzio, wrote a five act mystery about the saint’s life, incorporating narrative and musical accompaniment. But the star ballerina, Ida Rubinstein, was a Jewish woman, so Pope Pius X (himself later canonized) instructed Catholics to shun the performances, martyring the work. Le sigh. Now here’s the music: grounded yet unearthly, full of Debussy’s restless, swirling chords augmented with sacred-sounding chants and hypnotic figures. This multimedia interpretation by the SF Symphony, featuring narrator Frederica von Stade, should shoot to the stars. Through Sat/14 8 p.m., $35–$140

Unless you have the time, coin, and stamina to globe-trot around to every festival, you’re likely missing out on quite a bit of tasty international cinema. Sure, the latest Pedro Almodóvar will always hit the local art-house joint, but more obscure (and no less worthy) films that lack bigmoney distribution probably will not. Fortunately, San Rafael is a lot closer than Berlin or Cannes, where “For Your Consideration: A Selection of Oscar Submissions from Around the World” unspools starting today, with Sweden’s Beyond (starring Noomi “I Had the Dragon Tattoo First” Rapace); Hungarian standout Béla Tarr’s latest, The Turin Horse; Bulgarian youth-gone-wild treatise Tilt; and several others, including a movie from the Philippines (The Woman in the Septic Tank) that spoofs awards-grubbing “message” films.

Friday 1/13 Ellis Avery “La Belle Rafaela” (1927) is a decadent, highly erotic painting by the Polish Art Deco painter Tamara de Lempicka. The model de Lempicka used for the piece was Rafaela Fano — a woman she hired off the streets of Paris, painted several times, and with whom she became romantically involved. “La Belle” depicts Rafaela as a curvaceous nude, bathed in shadows, and flinching with euphoria. It conveys such feverish sensuality that probably would have been unachievable had the artist’s desires not been utterly real. The painting inspired author Ellis Avery to write The Last Nude, a

Friday 1/13 “Midnites for Maniacs: The Mind is a Terrible Thing to Taste” Oh, you didn’t think Midnites for Maniacs programmer Jesse Hawthorne Ficks would program a Friday the 13th flick to coincide with today’s sinister day-and-date combo? (Well, he might, but he’d pick one of the more ridiculous entries, like the one where Jason takes outer space.) Nay, fiends, tonight’s triple-feature is facewarping enough to be themed “The Mind is a Terrible Thing to Taste.” It kicks off with Sam Raimi’s 1992 Army of Darkness (Bruce. Fucking. Campbell.); followed by American Psycho, which came out in 2000 but remains eerily current in all ways (fashions excepted); and Alice Cooper’s Welcome to My Nightmare, a 1975 concert film capturing the shock rocker in his prime.

Coast Jumper I recently put together a list of my top 10 self-released albums of 2011, and I’m now kicking myself for not listening to Coast Jumper’s ambitious Grand Opening before I did. As far as debuts go, this Bandcamp gem is surprisingly lush and cohesive. There are a few glimpses of Vampire Weekend and Grizzly Bear, but above all Grand Opening presents a young indie rock five-piece making an exciting contribution to our local music scene. So, I’m making a late New Year’s resolution to pay close attention to Coast Jumper in 2012. (Capell) With Dogcatcher, Briertone, and Colin Carthen

With a PhD in computational biology and a tendency to name, if not organize, tracks after abstract scientific concepts (see the Serie trilogy of Harmonisch, Stochastisch, and Chaotisch) the UK’s Max Cooper could come across as a purely heady figure — a brain floating in a jar in some IDM lab. But Cooper has made a name for himself — appearing on Resident Advisor’s Top 100 DJs of 2011 — with ambient techno that manages to be moving. A delicate, light touch at work, whether a twinkle of keys or burst of static, Cooper’s evocative effects create familiar cinematic imagery: a walk in the rain, a passing car, a gasp emitted from bright red lips.

Sunday 1/15 Vetiver Vetiver’s lead singer Andy Cabic proved the value of wandering when his strolls through the

Richmond District led to another critically-acclaimed album for one of San Francisco’s most compelling folk bands. The band gained serious traction last spring with the release of The Errant Charm, a title hinting there may be inherent misdeed in such vagrancy; though the music, channeling ‘60s-style acoustics and California daze, is meant for musing. Through the close of last year the disheveled crooners were playing what seemed like every city in the country, promoting their newest record, and spreading the love. Now they return to their roots. The oracle predicts a jam session on a sparkly night in the Bay.

Monday 1/16 “Martin Luther King Jr. Day Double Feature” “All of us have something to say, but some are never heard” — Richard Pryor, Wattstax (1973). MLK Jr. Day calls into question how we remember the past. The Wattstax concert is sometimes recalled derivatively as “the black Woodstock.” But while soul music may have been the response, the event was put on by Stax Records to commemorate and come to terms

with the seventh anniversary of the Watts Riots in LA, which challenged the limits of MLK Jr.’s nonviolent philosophy. As a double feature the Wattstax documentary will be shown with The Black Power Mixtape 1967-1975 (2011), a revelatory look at a movement’s era that sadly took the distance of continent and a few decades to make.

Friday 1/13 Devo If there is any band that is a testament to the variance in public recognition, it’s Devo. To many, it is simply the band with the flowerpot hats that sang “Whip It.” Another group, however, will assert that Devo is the greatest musical act to ever come out of the Akron, Ohio area (Ha! Take that the Black Keys!) and that those “hats” are in fact Energy Domes. But while its 2010 album Something for Everybody — the first in 20 years since 1990’s Smooth Noodle Maps — was ostensibly market tested to please all camps, it largely represents a return to editorials

Though it (obviously) lacked the witty banter of Howard Hawks’ best-known films, 1928 silent A Girl in Every Port showcased Louise Brooks, an early example of the quintessential Hawksian woman.

Let him entertain you

“Howard Hawks: The Measure of Man” showcases the director’s crowd-pleasing career By Dennis Harvey arts@sfbg.com FILM The most famous and honored Hollywood directors have always been easily identifiable by style, genre, emotional tenor, or all the above. There’s Hitchcock with his wryly misanthropic suspense, and John Ford’s outdoor archetypes of masculinity. Even Steven Spielberg, who’s made just about every kind of narrative, has a telltale penchant for sweep and sentimentality running through everything from Jaws (1975) to The Adventures of Tintin (2011). But the director probably responsible for more popularly embraced classics than any other during the industry’s golden age remains less familiar by name than many inferior talents, and his was the classic case of a lifetime achievement Oscar offered as thinly veiled apology for being ignored by the Academy over a long, conspicuous career haul. Howard Hawks could be said to bring all this upon himself: while far from modest, he was never much interested in self-promotion, or publicity in general. Nor did his films provide the obvious auteur identification points of a recognizable visual style, or consistent interest in particular genres or story elements. 22 SAN FRANCISCO BAY GUARDIAN

They’re immaculately crafted, with some thematic similarities one can poke an analytic stick at after extended scrutiny. Yet as much as Hawks fought for creative freedom, often exasperating studio executives with his stubborn independence, he had few pretensions (or tolerance) toward art, pretty much measuring his movies’ value by their box-office performance. As has been noted elsewhere, that wasn’t because he was a bottom-line-focused hack, but because for decades his personal taste really did seem precisely in synch with the majority public’s. The Pacific Film Archive’s “Howard Hawks: The Measure of Man” offers plenty of opportunity to weigh that discriminating yet popular appeal via a retrospective that’s thorough if not quite exhaustive. It reaches from his earliest extant feature (1926 comedy Fig Leaves) to his penultimate (‘67 John Wayne horse opera El Dorado). Between, there’s an almost staggering array of gems, more than any one life’s work should encompass: the seminal gangster flick (1932’s Scarface); deathless screwball classics Twentieth Century (1934), Bringing Up Baby (1938), His Girl Friday (1940), and Ball of Fire (1941); war epics (1930’s The Dawn Patrol, 1941’s Sergeant York); Western totems Red editorials

River (1948) and Rio Bravo (1959); setting the standard for cinematic sexual cool via the invention of Bogart and Bacall (1944’s To Have and Have Not, 1945’s The Big Sleep). Hawks wasn’t particularly attracted to musicals or sci-fi. Yet he made one of the all-time most enduring titles in each category, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953) and The Thing from Another World (1951, with “official” directing credit going to Christian Nyby). Hawks came from Gentile gentry, which lent him an air of entitlement he didn’t mind using to intimidate the largely Jewish, working-class backgrounded studio chiefs he infuriated by running way over budget and schedule. The motion picture business was an odd, borderlinedisreputable choice for his like just post-World War I. Yet its wooliness (not to mention the never-ending wellspring of pretty girls) struck his fancy, and he worked in numerous capacities before getting to direct a first feature in 1923. Later he’d dismiss his silentera films as apprenticeship, though the few that survive have their points — 1928’s A Girl in Every Port introduces an ongoing motif of jokily tough-loving male camaraderie and finds a quintessential Hawksian woman in colt-

ish flapper legend Louise Brooks, while the same year’s hunk of “Arab sheik” exotica Fazil has some unusually vivid (for Hawks) depictions of sexual desire. With sound, however, Hawks was immediately in his element: snappy patter and hardboiled realism (or something like) were more to his liking than the pictorial emotionalism of the silent screen, even if as a director he remained close-lipped toward cast and crew to a “sphinx-like” degree. (The many superficially contradictory comments about his on-set demeanor gleaned from collaborators in Todd McCarthy’s definitive biography Howard Hawks: The Grey Fox of Hollywood reveal a technique that liberated some and frustrated others.) Scarface, which prompted his first of many censorship battles, came out as the gangster vogue was considered kaput. Yet it was a sensation, and remains the only such film from that era still shockingly violent, sexual, and modern. It’s arguable that the Hawksian template wasn’t fully formed until 1939’s Only Angels Have Wings. Its loose, episodic script suited his essential disinterest in narrative (which would become a problem in the 1960s), allowing all the greater focus on a tight group of wisecracking, poker-faced men in music listings

daily peril (as mail-delivering pilots in the remotest tropics), while Jean Arthur’s dogged pursuit of a seemingly disinterested Cary Grant posited women as an infrequently worthy adversary-companion on rare occasions invited into the boys’ club. (In the screwball comedies, however, berserk woman often simply torments man into submission.) Allergic to mush stuff, Hawks liked slim, sporty, husky-voiced women — ones an ever-decreasing fraction of his age as time passed, both on and off screen. (Though Gentlemen made her, he professed zero understanding of bodacious Marilyn Monroe’s appeal.) Yet as with his three marriages, he seldom stuck with one for long, almost never casting leading ladies twice while working recurrently with Grant, Wayne, Gary Cooper, and numerous behindthe-camera personnel. After a long, nearly unbroken string of hits, his touch began slipping in the mid-1950s; like many old-school Hollywood greats, he seemed quite out of synch with the times a decade later. By then Hollywood was probably relieved to be rid of a filmmaker who’d always used his success as leverage in getting maximum paydays (though as a compulsive gambler he was forever in debt), as well as against studio interference. He avoided longterm contracts whenever possible, acting like an independent agent long before seismic industry changes essentially dismantled the contract system for everyone. His politics were conservative, but seldom flexed — he had little use for politicking unless it helped him get more freedom (and money). Hawks could be arrogant personally, yet was nothing if not unpretentious about his art, at one late point insisting “I never made a ‘statement.’ Our job is to make entertainment.” An unproduced screenplay from his twilight years describes central characters in terms one imagines he’d readily apply to himself: “Tough, resourceful, cheerfully ruthless but always within limits, deeply loyal to a friend but never sentimental, equally needing women, adventure, and a spice of danger to make life worth living.” 2 “Howard Hawks: The Measure of Man” Jan. 13-April 17, $5.50-$9.50 Pacific Film Archive 2757 Bancroft, Berk.

Yet as much as they might like to think theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re so-not That, what red-corpuscled Americans with an electrical socket in their dwelling â&#x20AC;&#x201D; or simply senses to absorb stray bits of popular culture when they venture outside â&#x20AC;&#x201D; arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t influenced by if not downright addicted to some facets of the entertainment industry? It takes enormous effort to approach purity in this regard: a combination of home-schooling, mainstream-society-shunning, self-sustaining, off-grid living that pretty much requires the clock be turned back to pioneer days, before oughty-mobiles and other fancy products of modernity. Certain radical polygamist sects of recent notoriety might be the closest anyone in the Lower 48 gets these days to unhooking more than one stubborn individual or three off the infinitely tentacled monster of pop media. Of course those people are weirdos whom mainstream Mormons prefer not to be associated with, especially when theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re running for President. To be a regular LDS Church member means having a looser, somewhat disapproving yet tolerant attitude toward Hollywood products. It means, for instance, deeming MTV too racy for basic cable. (Think of the children!) It means wanting your cake, but eating it with less decadent icing. However, many a chef chafes at a consumer scraping the offending spices, toppings, and toplessnesses from his or her labored-over creations just because said consumer is on some special diet.

ent: they paid for the item; why shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t they doctor it as stomach and conscience decrees? That debate, acted out in the heart of Mormonlandia, is at the crux of Andrew James and Joshua Ligariâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s documentary Cleanflix. Its eventually very twisty tale starts out with the simple arrival of a supply to meet a demand â&#x20AC;&#x201D; in this case, â&#x20AC;&#x153;cleaned upâ&#x20AC;? versions of Hollywood movies offered for rental or purchase in a handful of Utah stores starting around the turn of the millennium. Handily removing â&#x20AC;&#x153;sex, nudity, profanity, and gory violenceâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; pretty much in precisely that descending order of importance â&#x20AC;&#x201D; from commercial movies for home viewing, Ray Linesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; original CleanFlicks identified a community need and filled it. This success did not pass unnoticed. In fact even as CleanFlicks sold its stores and moved into online distribution, competitors were multiplying like plygs (children of polygamous families), each one howling as the next invaded their territory. There are many things you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do, or at least are strongly discouraged from doing, in the Mormon-dominated state of Utah. But practicing cutthroat capitalism is not one of them â&#x20AC;&#x201D; quite the opposite. Money corrupts just like power, however, and Cleanflix veers in unexpected directions as one of its principal characters, a seemingly affable and earnest man of faith, turns out to be a purported fornicating stoner pornmonger whose only spirituality was spelled with a $. The heat gets such that he has to flee the state, briefly landing in Gomorrah itself, Hollywood. Even as it stumbles upon such lurid human interest, Cleanflix keeps an eye on the bigger picture, notably the question: who has the right to alter a copyrighted picks

work? Some â&#x20AC;&#x153;cleanâ&#x20AC;? video shops clung to the notion that since they purchased and tweaked each and every DVD themselves, they were free to do what they wanted with them. Besides, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the big studios often create censored versions of their own films for airplane screenings and such? The industry begged to differ, eventually winning court victories that shut down most (if not all) of the independent â&#x20AC;&#x153;content filteringâ&#x20AC;? businesses. We hear from directors like Steven Soderbergh and Neil LaBute (the latter an ex Mormon), who bristle at the hubris behind â&#x20AC;&#x153;changing something that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t belong to you,â&#x20AC;? saying that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s naive at best to think in taking a few bricks out of an artistic house you wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t cause the whole structure to collapse. Then of course thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the worry that such tampering â&#x20AC;&#x153;cultivates a tolerance for censorshipâ&#x20AC;? and uses legitimizes â&#x20AC;&#x153;a shamefulness toward sexuality,â&#x20AC;? no matter what the artistâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s original intention might have been. Ye olden American hypocrisy in matters of sex vs. violence â&#x20AC;&#x201D; so opposite the attitudes flaunted by our socialistic European brethren â&#x20AC;&#x201D; is glimpsed in â&#x20AC;&#x153;cleansedâ&#x20AC;? movies like 1996â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Fargo that many patrons find permissible with all its extreme bloodletting intact (remember that wood chipper?), but one mention of the word â&#x20AC;&#x153;penisâ&#x20AC;? tastefully excised. The mind reels at some successfully censored cinema noted here, like 1999â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s The Matrix with all its umpteen non-graphic killings removed, or even sacrosanct Schindlerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s List (1993) minus any concentration camp details unsuitable for the entire family. Some movies, however, resist all taming. Ray Lines admits there was no point trying to scrub up 1990â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seemingly harmless Pretty Woman (whose Cinderella is a streetwalker). As for 2005â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Brokeback Mountain, well ... â&#x20AC;&#x153;We didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do that one on principle,â&#x20AC;? a CleanFlicks editor says. Just as the monkey at the typewriter will sooner or later write Hamlet, so in the infinite diversity of human experience, once in a great while homophobia is going to be good news for homosexuals.

ThrillEr 5IFTQJSJUPG.JDIBFM+BDLTPOSFUVSOTXJUI$JSRVFEV4PMFJM By Emily SavagE emilysavage@sfbg.com mUSiC There are so many extravagant things you could say about the late King of Pop, our holy father of stage theatrics and sequined gloves, Michael Jackson. The moon-walking man, the storied myth, the embattled legend. If you want to get at the core of his power, the lifelong devotion of his millions of followers, try to envision a scenario that took place decades ago; look back at a then12-year-old choreographer named Laurie Sposit, mimicking dance moves in her bedroom plastered with Michael Jackson posters. “I also wanted the red [Thriller] jacket but my dad wouldn’t get it for me, I was traumatized,” says Sposit from a brief stop in Phoenix, Ariz. Now grown, Sposit has toured the world with the likes of Madonna, Beyonce, and Janet Jackson, but never had the chance to dance on stage with Michael. As of October, she’s been traveling as dance master for Cirque Du Soleil’s newest grand-scale production Michael Jackson: The Immortal World Tour. Says Sposit, “it feels like it came full-circle for me.” A vibrant, eye-popping mixture of remixed videos, pyrotechnics, elaborate costumery, pulsating live music, breakdancers, high-flying acrobats, and a wealth of that classic Michael choreography (including one routine that appears to be performed in a pair of human-sized 24 SAN FRANCISCO BAY GUARDIAN

black loafers and white socks), The Immortal World Tour reflects, expands, and magnifies the classic Michael Jackson live show — with the expected Cirque flair. Cirque produced something similarly spectacular with the Beatles catalogue (Love), but this one seems to lend itself even more to the format given the sheer drama of Michael-the-star. Written and directed by Jamie King, the production kicked off Oct. 2 in Montreal and is in the midst of a massive tour, with an eventual, inevitable home in Las Vegas. It incorporates the grand span of Michael’s career; there’s even an accompanying remix album which has been charting since its release in November. It’s all there in the production: Jackson 5 hits, “Billie Jean,” “Black or White,” “Dangerous,” “Thriller” — even “Scream,” the hit duet with Janet. The nearly three hour, approximately $60 million production includes more than 60 performers each night. One of the production’s youngest performers is 20-year-old Holland-based breakdancer Pom Arnold. In the show, Arnold performs in 10 different numbers and after shows, he says, the dancers often keep moving. They go back to their hotels, order pizza, and dance in their rooms together. “Like breathing for you, is dancing for us,” he says. A breakdancer since age 10, this is Arnold’s first international production — and by the far the music listings

biggest. “I think for many of the dancers this has been one of the biggest productions. It’s Michael. You can’t go bigger, I think, unless you’re working with the man himself.” The intensity of that comes through in his performance. When Arnold was rehearsing the routine for “Smooth Criminal” with the backing band for the first time, surrounded by other dancers, he was unprepared for the sudden wave of emotion rushing through him. “I got goosebumps on the stage. And that never happened to me before, dancing and getting goosebumps,” he says in a phone call from tour. Sposit too has felt the connection. As dance master, her responsibilities include overseeing the choreography to help maintain the integrity of the production. During the first two months of the tour, she cried every time the curtain went up, just as she did when she caught Michael’s tour as a tween. It’s a visceral response to seeing the music enlivened once more. “And I also watch the audience,” Sposit says of her nightly routine, “I’ve seen many people cry. It kind of takes them on an emotional journey.” 2 Michael Jackson : The iMMorTal World Tour Fri/13-Sat/14, 8 p.m.; Sun/15, 4 p.m., $50–$250 HP Pavilion 525 West Santa Clara, San Jose Jan. 17-18, 8 p.m., $50–$250 Oracle Arena 7000 Coliseum Way, Oakl. www.cirquedusoleil.com/MichaelJackson

(FSNBO(FNTTIJOFTÂąBOETJHOTPGG By Nicole GlucksterN arts@sfbg.com FilM When Ingrid Eggers announced that 2012 would mark her last German Gems film festival, the news came as a bittersweet reminder that nothing lasts forever. Perhaps not coincidentally, this theme is perfectly summed up by the quintet of films that comprise German Gemsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; final line-up. From the scandal-inducing, incestuous love affair (and its slow-burning aftermath) between artistic siblings Georg and Margarethe Trackl in Christoph Starkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Taboo: The Soul is a Stranger on Earth, to the rejection of childhood dreams portrayed in Robert Thalheimâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Westwind, this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s festival deals overwhelmingly with the impacts and lingering reverberations of loss. Whether Eggers planned it this way â&#x20AC;&#x201D; to help us work through our grief at losing her curatorial prowess â&#x20AC;&#x201D; isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t clear, but in any event, the selection does prepare the viewer emotionally to accept her graceful auf Wiedersehen. An understated portrait of Germanyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s relationship with nuclear power, Under Control is a quietly compelling observational documentary. Crafted simply from footage taken inside nuclear power plants across Germany and Austria, along with interviews with various plant operators and nuclear energy experts regarding each particular plantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s focus and future, Under Control offers an intriguing look at a side of nuclear power weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not normally privy to: the somewhat editorials

banal day-to-day operations which go into its generation. These glimpses include stark imagery of long, sterile white corridors; retro-futuristic control rooms filled with panels and flashing monitors; plant employees being scanned for radiation; steam curling above bucolic countryside from the giant mouths of cooling towers; a subterranean bunker where contaminated washrags go to be buried; and a tense emergency-preparedness training session during which a reactor shutdown is simulated. By the filmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s end an unexpected realization becomes apparent: the almost foregone conclusion that Germanyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nuclear age is drawing to an end. As filmmakers Volker Sattel and Stefan Stefanescu are given a tour of the remains of what was once the Kalkar nuclear facility, completed in 1985 but never taken â&#x20AC;&#x153;online,â&#x20AC;? their guide mourns the loss of jobs, and more importantly, of the billions of Deutschmarks used to fund the construction of a doomed power plant. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Chernobyl broke our backs,â&#x20AC;? he asserts almost wistfully, while astonishing footage of a modernday carnival ride built inside the shell of the old cooling tower spirals onscreen. A film dealing more directly with loss of the utterly human variety, Jan Schomburgâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Above Us Only Sky follows Martha (Sandra HĂźller), a soft-spoken schoolteacher married to PhD student Paul (Felix Schmidt-Knopp), with whom she plans to move to picks

Marseilles after he accepts a job offer at a hospital there. Or so she thinks. In a series of brief, clipped scenes, she discovers that the man she has been living with for years has been leading a secret life sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s known nothing about. Struggling to regain her bearings, she meets Alexander (Georg Friedrich), a charismatic, tattooed professor at Paulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s former university, and in a series of awkwardlyengineered moments, initiates a relationship with him. As their attachment grows, their pairing begins to resemble Marthaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s previous relationship â&#x20AC;&#x201D; right down to a discussion about moving to Marseilles. The main attraction of this film is HĂźllerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nuanced performance, and her disarming veneer of almost girlish delicacy and neurotic sexuality concealing an iron will. Her previous tragedy informing her actions, she keeps her motivations to herself, revealing as little as possible for as long as possible, a stubborn survivalist strategy which finally unravels just enough for Alexander to be able to reveal his own hidden past. A first feature for Schomburg, the deceptively simple Above Us Only Sky doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t waste a frame while tracing the subtle contours of a paradise lost, and one regained. 2

SF COMEDY SHOWCASE - EVERY SUNDAY!

DJ DOwN-e, vIvvyaNNe FOreverMOre, aND GLaMaMOre OF SOMe THING

SUPer eGO The slightly â&#x20AC;&#x153;mehâ&#x20AC;? body of 2011 isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even cold yet and already we have two completely ridiculous yet ridiculously adorable new deliberately manufactured subcultures to pretend argue on blogs about, because who blogs anymore? Seapunks and bronies, yep. I hope they fight, too, because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be the 2012 apocalypse in one cute, handy metaphor. Sparkly rainbow annihilation now! Luckily, both also provide some cotton candy for thought. Bronies (and Pegasisters) are adult fans of â&#x20AC;&#x153;My Little Pony,â&#x20AC;? spanning the subcultural spectrum from dedicated furries to wayward anime admirers. And yes, they dress up, and yes, there was a packed Bronycon in NYC last week. The Brony dance music of choice is variously called rainbowstep, ponystep, or dubtrot, and consists mostly of â&#x20AC;&#x153;My Little Ponyâ&#x20AC;?-based samples (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fluttershy will snuggle you in your sleep!â&#x20AC;?) laid over basic dubstep tracks. Many will find this to be divine justice for the much-maligned dubstep genre; Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m fascinated by both the everevolving cuddlecore-kawaii movement â&#x20AC;&#x201D; humanity is so awesome â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and the strange amalgamation of retro commercialism and celebratory fetishism, dancing together to something someone whipped up on a laptop for the occasion. Seapunk is a bit more complex, a wonderful bit of subcultural engineering masterminded by elfin LA producer Fire for Effect, of underground pop group Ssion, who wanted wanted more environmental consciousness in the club scene. (The original concept came from a â&#x20AC;&#x153;GIF dreamâ&#x20AC;? designed by Twitter

food + Drink

picks

arts + culture

personality Lil Internet.) Seapunkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s aqueous adherents, mostly in the Midwest but spreading fast â&#x20AC;&#x201D; SF just got its first octopussy Seapunk mural at Market and 12th Street â&#x20AC;&#x201D; have been characterized as goth mermaids, which certainly captures the look and feel: think turquoisedyed hair and an embrace of all things oceanic, yay for steampunk jellyfish outfits. But the whole idea is perhaps appropriately diffuse, nay watered-down: itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more an â&#x20AC;&#x153;Internet conceptâ&#x20AC;? than a packaged lifestyle. And the music isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t punk at all. Besides an odd bubbling noise, it would be hard to identify any seapunk tracks (by Zombelle, Teams, Slava, Unknown) as anything but deep, dreamy tech house and bass music, a bit drownedsounding, with those chipmunked rap samples now back in vogue. The lighter side of witch house, maybe. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in the DJ sets, though, that seapunk catches my ear, especially those by Ultrademon. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re perfectly party-ready, completely unchallenging, slightly melancholic fun runs you can imagine someone raving out to in a giant polyurethane bubble. But the intermittent, seemingly random fast-slow timeshifts are something more. What if mix tempos could change suddenly, freely, and often at the clubs â&#x20AC;&#x201D; like the currents of our rapidly rising, steadily depleting oceans? SOMe THING TUrNS FOUr: I want to give a special birthday shoutout to one of my favorite weekly clubs, Some Thing (Fridays, 9 p.m.-4 a. m., $7. The Stud, 399 Ninth St., SF. www.studsf.com), which brings a fantastically twisted and hot, hot, hot community of queers and (other) together every Friday for shoestring razzle-dazzle drag shenanigans and afterhours dancing. music listings

Helmed by the glorious Glamamore, who celebrates 30 years of drag this year; VivvyAnne ForeverMore, fresh back from dance performances in NYC; and DJ down-E, our king of deadpan cataclysmic retro (why not just throw on some Carpenters occasionally?), this is really one of the hardest working parties in town â&#x20AC;&#x201D; no sweat ever shows, though, those seams are seamless. There, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see 10-plus performance numbers covering everything from nonironic Broadway showtune adoration to scandalous punk rock conflagration. Meet me there for a shot or four this Friday â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and hit up the SFBG.com Noise blog for my juicy interview.

CREaTCollinE WeaberNisdtheddesEignSerTROy to the (garage rock) stars

By Emily SavagE emilysavage@sfbg.com WiNTER lOOKS You could have spotted Collin Weber running through the Mission on the way to the Knockout, frantic, with a bag full of satin bows to complete a trio of Sailor Moon costumes. Or perhaps youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen his handy-work elsewhere, in the colorful capes and pointed hats Shannon and the Clams wear in their video for â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sleep Talkâ&#x20AC;? or the sixties striped shifts the Dirty Cupcakes sport in â&#x20AC;&#x153;I Want It (Your Love).â&#x20AC;? Weber, a library aid by day and seamster by night, has been creating costumed frocks for an incestuous batch of Bay Area garage rockers for the past two years â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Dirty Cupcakes, Shannon and the Clams, Hunx and His Punx, Human Waste â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and is open to taking on more acts. â&#x20AC;&#x153; I think thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot more payoff when you do something and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s up on stage and out on tour and tons of people see it, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in a music video,â&#x20AC;? he says leaning against an rack of cloth at Fabric Outlet, â&#x20AC;&#x153;not that I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just want to make thing for people to wear. But the costumes are the fun project for me.â&#x20AC;? Some of those projects include dinosaur hats, American flag bell-bottoms, gold fake snakeskin skirt and vest combos, and once, for Human Waste, he created full face-masking bodysuits. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The theme they gave me was prisoners on the moon in the future,â&#x20AC;? Weber laughs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a whole story behind it, but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what I had to go on.â&#x20AC;? editorials

He created flesh-covering suits, with shiny knee pads and strips of mesh across the mouth and eyes. (Mesh so the band could still see its instruments.) â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty creepy. The first time I tried it on I was a little scared of my own reflection in the mirror. I think that was a sign that it was going in the right direction.â&#x20AC;? I ask if he has his own signature design fixture, something thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s uniquely Weber, and he explains that it can be difficult because heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s often catering to bandsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; specific visions, keeping with their imagined themes. Though he says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;one thing that shows up though â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always been kind of obsessed with â&#x20AC;&#x201D; is futuristic, but circa 1960. Special effects, when people tried to guess what people would be wearing in 2012. Shiny, still really mod, but futuristic.â&#x20AC;? He smiles sheepishly, Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;We Are The Championsâ&#x20AC;? comes pumping through Fabric Outletâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s speakers. Weberâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s style is also influenced by David Bowie circa Ziggy Stardust era, and the designer of those costumes, Kansai Yamamoto. He drops references to the broader glam and loud statement pieces, along with interesting menswear, specifically Comme des Garçons which he describes as â&#x20AC;&#x153;crazy stuff for men thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just barely wearable.â&#x20AC;? His interest in sewing came from a bout of post-college, prework boredom while living in Milwaukee. While roommates with Dirty Cupcakes drummer Laura Gravander in the Midwest picks

arts + culture

he learned how to use her sewing machine and begin deconstructing thrifted clothes, doing alterations, and eventually creating his own pieces. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all self-taught, and learned through both trialand-error and diligent YouTube viewing. Now living in San Francisco (though he moved first with Gravander from Milwaukee to the East Bay), he works shelving books at two library jobs, an aid at the Central Library in Berkeley and a page at the Main Library at Civic Center in SF. He awaits an open librarian position and has kept up the sewing and costume-making as a creative outlet. Weber mentions that he likes making costumes for bands specifically because thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a definite deadline: the night of the show. Do or die. He may have been known to run down the street trailing thread, or sew up a piece as the band is about to step on stage, but he also understands the great responsibility of outfitting hard rocking musicians â&#x20AC;&#x201D; certain areas must be reinforced, seams must be sturdy because of fierce movement. And with that comes the punk fate of it all, in sewing costumes for bands, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s essentially creating what will likely be destroyed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you put a lot of work into something, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sad to see it get trashed, or blood on it,â&#x20AC;? says Weber, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just something you have to take into consideration, whether something just looks nice or whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to last through rock â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;nâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; roll.â&#x20AC;? 2

WINTer LOOkS Drop your Zappos, gentlemen, it’s time to score some 2012 flash at the brick and mortars. Once slim pickin’s in terms of local, independent, mostly affordable menswear options (RIP, Kweejibo and Huf), San Francisco’s manly man shopping scene has been on the upswing lately, augmenting essential mainstays like Sui Generis, Upper Playground, Nomads, Azalea, D-Structure, Density, Darkside Initiative, and Revolver with fresh faves (including Welcome Stranger, pictured in this issue’s fashion photospread). Here’s a handful of relative newbies to get into.

acre/SF It’s been a wee while since I found myself clothes shopping in North Beach, but Acre/SF — above the usual touristy fray in a cool spot on Telegraph Hill — drew me in the moment I heard about it. It’s brought to us by the folks at Acrimony, but with a stronger focus on handsome casualwear and a slightly lower price point. A nifty pop-up Gitman Brothers vintagey flannel shop paired well with Acre’s Blue Bottle coffee when I was there (it’s also a café with a great view), and more such felicitous additions are in store, I’m told. 301 Union, SF. (415) 875-9590, www.acresf.com

aSMBLy HaLL The just-out-the-box Fillmore boutique falls into the Ivy Leagueaspirational category of current menswear trends, but with a dash of urban snazz. The natty clothes aren’t priced too outrageously (button-down shirts are around $80), and familiar classics are tweaked with unique elements like scal-

loped collars and stripy inseams. Husband-wife owners Ron and Tricia Benitez have reworked an old mattress store into an absolutely lovely space with brick walls and blond wood floors. Here’s where you’ll score that funky two-tone cardigan, irreplaceable Oxford, or much-sought-after Makia tee. You’ll have to supply your own air of undergrad gravitas. 1850 Fillmore, SF. (415) 567-5953, Facebook: Asmbly Hall

GaNGS OF SaN FraNcIScO A retro-cute Hayes Valley hole in the wall whose eponymous t-shirt line, designed by Buenos Aires transplant Laureano Faedi, emblazons vintage graphics of San Francisco historiana (“Sutro Speedway,” “Bayview Butchers,” “Fleischhaker Diving Club”) onto comfy tees. 66 Gough, SF. www.gangsofsanfrancisco.com

MaaS & STackS Yum. I want to eat/wear everything in this small but powerfully curated shop at Church and Market, from the sturdily-structured Norse Projects hooded jackets to the micropatterned White Mountaineering FW11 sweaters. Owners Stephen Chen and Otto Zoell are helping to finally make the Castro an actual shopping destination for people uninterested in fluorescent pink mankinis and rainbow love beads. 2128 Market, SF. (415) 679-5629, www.maasandstacks.com

NeW Jack cITy This delicious Mission B-boy vintagewear throwback joint got some love in our Best of the Bay Editors Picks last year, but it’s worth pumping what may just be the coolest secondhand gear store in SF for freaky-stylies. A mouthwatering selection of broken-in music listings

stage listings

team jackets (satin even!), sports team tees and caps, geometric-patterned pullovers, neon tracksuits, and any number of awesome retro streetwear goods awaits you and your fantasy breakdancing self. 299 Guerrero, SF. (415) 624-3751, newjackcitysf.blogspot.com

TrIpLe auGHT DeSIGN There’s a really interesting thing going on in men’s activewear right now. It’s all about obsessive technology when it comes to insulating layers — call it Extreme North Face — and several companies are making exquisitely structured, extremely durable thermal wear that doubles as attractive street fashion. Aether, from Los Angeles, and New Zealand’s rad Icebreaker (which just opened a location, or “Touchlab,” in Union Square) are touchstones, but our very own Triple Aught Design, with Hayes Valley and Dogpatch outposts, really shines, with futuristic-feeling apparel and gear. (I especially desire the strappy, Sand People-esque backpacks.) 551 Hayes, SF; 66 22nd St., SF. (415) 318-8252, www.tripleaughtdesign.com

THe VOyaGer SHOp Bringing together Mollusk surf shop, Revolver clothing, Spartan accessories and goods, and Michael Rosenthal Art Gallery, Voyager’s a visually stunning geodesic-like, refurbished wood cabin concept gallery-store collab in the Mission. (It reminds me of something from “Hello Meth Lab in the Sun.”) The menswear side of things focuses on the sporty and outdoorsy with a contemporary prep twist — what you’d expect from the fine Revolver, slightly bro’d up for the Mollusk crowd. Pretty damn cool. 365 Valencia, SF. (415) 800-3527, www.thevoyagershop.com 2

WinteR looKS I spend a lot of time convincing my friends that we should ride our bikes places, and the main pushback I get is due to the fact that they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to look like they just got off a bike. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s faulty reasoning. Leaving aside how attractive environmental awareness is, anyone who has ever checked out the VĂŠlo Vogue style blog or the global family of Copenhagen Chic websites knows that a bike can make an already-stylish outfit look sexy in a precarious, fly-by-night way. Think about watching someone run gracefully in heels. Honestly, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think you need a special wardrobe to be banginâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; on a bike. A tip that I do tend to pay mind to: high-waisted pants are your friends. A man once stopped me when my thong had risen above my denim horizon to ask me if I had no modesty. A cretin, yes â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but his brand of stick-up-assery is easily mitigated by a kicky pair of retro mom jeans. Also, fear not the high heel, but rather the boot or flat with little heel-arch delineation â&#x20AC;&#x201D; unless you have toe cages, in which case you can wear nearly any footwear you like as long as the cages are tight enough, even flip-flops. Of course, if you are wearing flip-flops in San Francisco you have larger style issues, ones that may not be resolved by reading about bike brands that are crafting clothes at once sturdy enough to brave the biting winds and occasional damp of winter months, yet still exciting and stylish. For the rest of us, such is the list that follows. 2

thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll make your morning commute drier. Histogram arm warmers promise extra sleeve coverage, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s henleys and rain trenches for the taking, and Bay Areamade Inside Line Equipment water-proof backpacks will set you apart from the omnipresent Chrome crowd. 733 14th St., SF. (415) 448-6611, www.mashsf.com

outlieR This label from Seattle makes subdued designs functional enough that â&#x20AC;&#x153;theyâ&#x20AC;? wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t blink an eye if you have to follow that polished dismount with a day at work, and then with a night tramping around town. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a particular fan of the womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s daily riding pant, made of doubleweave twill. The fabric is smooth enough to shred the city streets, and comes in fetching blues and gray thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll last you through spring. www.outlier.cc

B.SpoKe tailoR But perhaps none of these items are quite what you are looking for. Sweets, if thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the case â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re the type to buy signature pieces that last you for years, cuz these pricetags are no joke â&#x20AC;&#x201D; you should go to Oaklandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Nan Eastep. Her B.Spoke Tailor line births custom-made biking raincoats with extra-long sleeves that donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make coat-backs pull across shoulderblades. Or try her capes. Why not, you now qualify as a fashion superhero.

This Italian bike brandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Marina cafĂŠ-store could be the perfect spot to begin your quest for cold weather gear. First of all: coffee. Four Barrel percolates in a cafe tucked away in the corner of the sales floor â&#x20AC;&#x201D; which is mainly occupied by a long communal table where riders mingle on their way out to the foggy Marin hills or the grocery store. Clothing-wise, the selection isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t huge, but Raphaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s urban wear is well-made and classy. Straight-leg menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s jeans are made with a blend of nylon, cotton, and elastane yarn, with a waist cut higher in the back, and shiny stuff inside for when you roll up them cuffs.

We met Brianna at the Factory Flea market in Los Angeles. She lives in Claremont, CA and is pursuing a degree in Communications. Brianna is 20 years old, has two older brothers, and is of Mexican descent. She is as excited to be learning how to take photos (it's a hobby) as she is to be in them. She is wearing the Chiffon Secretary Blouse, and often wears our long Chiffon skirts.
