INTELLIGENCE POLITICAL ALERTS

LET MY PEOPLE GO: RIP DARONDO Though he was not widely known in his youth in San Francisco in the 1970s, moody funk and soul singer Darondo achieved fame in the late Aughts, pushed to the forefront after being rediscovered by tastemaker DJ Gilles Peterson. Darondo, the impassioned songwriter behind “Didn’t I” (a lateyears cult hit), was born William Daron Pulliam in 1946, and died of heart failure on June 9.

Theres something abt playing all female soul records all night & having straight guys shake yr hand for it that is particularly gratifying.

CALIFORNIA’S BATTLE-TORN OPEN RECORDS LAW The California Public Records Act, which guarantees citizens access to government records, came under the knife last week when a “trailer bill” attached to the new state budget contained changes that would have made it optional for local public agencies to comply with certain provisions of the law, like a requirement that agencies issue a response to records requests within 10 days. Billed as a cost-saving measure, the change drew major opposition from the California Newspaper Publisher’s Association and all of California’s major newspapers. The state Assembly backed down in response and agreed to keep those provisions of the law intact. But disagreement remains over whether state funding should be used to reimburse local agencies for CPRA compliance. Senators Mark Leno and Senate President pro Tempore Darrell Steinberg introduced a constitutional amendment that would insert the CPRA provisions into the state constitution, but at the same time would shift the cost burden of compliance to local agencies.

BIG UPS, ‘WEST SIDE’ Maria, meet Tony. SF Symphony conductor Michael Tilson Thomas has used his leverage as composer Leonard Bernstein’s protégé to gain permission for a rare performance — the first time the full score has been performed, actually — of Bernstein’s beloved music for West Side Story. The staged concert, running June 27-30, will be a tearjerking treat for lovers of both the play and movie (pictured). MTT “wanted these concerts to be infused with young energy and Broadway voices.” For that purpose — and, hey, relevance! — he’s enlisted statuesque actor Cheyenne Jackson (Glee, 30 Rock), a SF Pride 2013 Celebrity Grand Marshall, to sing the part of Tony. Alexandra Silber sings as Maria. www.sfsymphony.org

WEDNESDAY 26

STILL FREEING PUSSY RIOT While traveling through Yekaterinburg, Russia’s fourthlargest city, theater critic Robert Avila (see his travelogue in this issue) snapped this photo of graffiti in support of feminist punkrock activists Pussy Riot. “The first word means ‘free,’ of course,” Avila says.

ONE-THIRD OF SF HOMELESS ARE LGBT Every couple years, the San Francisco Human Services Agency goes out and conducts a count of the city’s homeless population. The results of the most recent count identified 6,436 homeless individuals on the streets of San Francisco, more than half of whom were without shelter. While historically the homeless population has been overwhelmingly white and African American, this year, the proportion of Latino survey respondents doubled, according to HSA statistics. Most surprising: 29 percent identified as LGBT. When asked via tweet about this statistic and the need for special LGBT-targeted services, the city’s “homeless czar” Bevan Dufty cited a 24-bed LGBT-focused shelter in the works with Dolores Street Services, which comes before the Planning Commission for approval on August 15.

GET YOUR HIRSTORY The Museum of Transgender Hirstory and Art, aka MOTHA: how was there not one already? Luckily Executive Director Chris E. Vargas and several other intrepid, outspoken souls have launched this project, whose location is currently roving about the city in one-off presentations and eye-opening exhibits. Last Friday’s ribbon-cutting and inaugural affair at YBCA was star-studded and juicy — visit the MOTHA table at the Trans March in Dolores Park on Fri/28. www.sfmotha.org

This work takes all of us.

Transforming Pride in our schools By Anayvette Martinez OPINION During Pride, San Francisco is overflowing with LGBT community events, vibrant energy, and rainbow flags. But how do we as a city celebrate diversity and teach each other about the practice of allyship during the rest of the year, especially in our schools where youth are growing and developing? Imagine a school where LGBTQQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning) and ally youth are leaders in creating environments where all students can thrive — a school where students who bully are not punished, but taught how to become allies. Imagine LGBTQQ youth every day leading their classmates with the support of school staff trained in LGBTQQ youth inclusion and their family members knowledgeable of LGBTQQ issues. Now stop imagining: LYRIC’s new School-Based Initiative is making it happen, with programs in Everett Middle School, Buena Vista Horace Mann, and Balboa High — and soon, hopefully, more. LYRIC (the Lavender Youth Recreation and Information Center) knows school communities can’t be transformed unless every potential ally is engaged, trained, and empowered. It takes more than a one-time discussion or film screening. Our seminars for students, professional development series for entire school staffs, and workshops for families reach deep into the classroom, into the schoolyard, and into students’ homes. In the most recent student survey results released by the San Francisco Unified School District (SFUSD), 33 percent of LGB students and almost half of transgender students report skipping school because they feel unsafe. Twenty-two percent of LGB students report receiving mostly F grades, while only 1 percent of their heterosexual peers say the same. More than 1,000 LGBT SFUSD students reported attempting suicide. Our LGBTQQ students deserve more. Through LYRIC’s new initiative,

 SAN FRANCISCO BAY GUARDIAN

we’re creating the school communities many of us longed for when we were young, giving LGBTQQ students today what most of us didn’t have. This work takes all of us. LYRIC’s work in schools comes from a very personal place for me as a second-generation queer Latina. As a youth, I had a difficult time navigating the San Francisco school system. I struggled to accept my own identity because I didn’t see myself reflected or celebrated in my community. This resulted in years of anger displacement, which led me to transfer in and out of multiple middle schools. As an adult, I worked at Horace Mann Middle School in the Mission (now Buena Vista Horace Mann). I saw how important it is for students to not only feel safe in their schools but to feel celebrated for being who they are. It became apparent to me that there needed to be a deep and intentional intervention. I found in LYRIC an organization that shared my vision for school inclusion and transformation. We began the process of building a new model by talking directly with students, school staff, and families about what they needed to see change. As the director of LYRIC’s School-Based Initiative, I have seen first-hand how a holistic model transforms schools into safer and more inclusive communities. I am blessed to be a queer mother of color to Lupita, 8, and Diego, 6. The work I do today through LYRIC’s School-Based Initiative is not only about my past experience as a queer youth, but also about creating the kind of world I want my kids to grow up in. We all have a role in making sure our school communities are safe and accepting places where LGBTQQ youth — where all youth — can be proud. Stay in touch with LYRIC at www. facebook.com/LYRIC.LavenderYouth, and see how you can help. 2 Anayvette Maria Martinez is LYRIC’s School-Based Initiative director.

Guardian is dead, long live the Guardian EDITORIAL First of all, we at the Bay Guardian want to thank our community for its support since the abrupt departure of our beloved leader, longtime Guardian Editor Tim Redmond, on June 13. It was a shock to us and the larger community, and the outpouring of concern and support is a testament to the important role the Redmond and the Guardian have played in San Francisco. We’ve all been wondering where we go from here, vacillating between emotional extremes. So we want to take this opportunity to start a conversation with our readers in the hopes that our next steps can be constructive and deliberate, hopefully leading to a renewal of an important media institution that has sadly been in a period of decline for far too long. Moments of crisis can also be important opportunities, and it is our intention for that to be the case here. It is ironic that the seeds of Redmond’s departure were sown on June 12, just as he was leaving to moderate an inspiring community forum on Plan Bay Area and the future of San Francisco, which he food + Drink

organized. Owner Todd Vogt and newly named Guardian Publisher Stephen Buel were there as well, and they share the view of longtime Guardian staffers that the energy in that room represented an important moment of potential progressive resurgence that shows the Guardian is more vital and relevant than ever. Yet Vogt and Buel also believe that the Guardian isn’t resonating with either our readers or advertisers like we should, and those of us who remain want to achieve that resonance once again. We believe in the mission of the Guardian, to raise hell and be forum for progressive change in San Francisco, and we want to reinvigorate that mission with the new generation of Guardianistas who now find ourselves at the helm of this venerable old publication. So we want to hear from you, our readers and advertisers, about what you want from the Guardian. We want you to help us formulate the plan for achieving greater journalistic relevance and economic sustainability. This is the transition point where the Guardian charts music

stage

its future or fades into the past. We have enormous respect for the people who made the Guardian what it is, particularly Redmond, Bruce Brugmann, and Jean Dibble — and we appreciate our new owners’ efforts to keep the Guardian going. But we’re also ready to help formulate a new progressive vision for the Bay Area and to find new ways of speaking to residents who may not have been engaged with the Guardian or the movements that it has chronicled and advocated, without neglecting those who have stuck with us over the years. In the coming weeks, we plan to announce another community forum focused on the future of journalism and the progressive movement in San Francisco, and to provide other avenues for you to get involved and shape the new Guardian. Come offer constructive advice — or tell us whatever you’re feeling now, whatever ideas you have: we want to hear them. Let’s make a plan and have you hold us to it, and in turn, we ask for your support. The Guardian is dead, long live the Guardian. 2

NEWS PROTESTERS TO BE AWARDED $1 MILLION SETTLEMENT A federal judge has granted preliminary approval for a settlement of more than $1 million to a group of 150 activists who were mass arrested in Oakland three years ago. The National Lawyers Guild filed the federal class action civil-rights suit on behalf of the protesters, who in some cases were held for more than 24 hours despite never facing formal charges. The mass arrest took place on Nov. 5, 2010, when activists marched in opposition to the light sentence handed down to Johannes Mehserle, the former BART officer who was tried for murder after he shot and killed unarmed BART passenger Oscar Grant. After winding through the streets in downtown Oakland, protesters took a turn toward Fruitvale Station, where Grant was fatally shot. But instead, police in riot gear forced them into a residential neighborhood

“THERE WAS NO ROOM TO LIE DOWN. I SAT UP AGAINST A WALL FOR THE ENTIRE NIGHT.” KATIE LONCKE where they were kettled in and massarrested for unlawful assembly. There’s a process for making mass arrests that is clearly laid out in OPD’s crowd control policy, “to comply with California law and the U.S. constitution. That would involve giving a warning, and then allowing people to disperse,” Rachel Lederman of the NLG points out. “This was a perfectly legal demonstration,” and with the exception of one or two individuals who vandalized bus windows during the march, the vast majority of protesters did not engage in illegal activity. Instead of being cited and released, or simply allowed to disperse once police declared the march to be “unlawful,” the 150 demonstrators who were penned in by police were sent through a long and uncomfortable booking process, Lederman said. They were left sitting on the street, then loaded onto buses and vans where they were made to wait, still handcuffed, for up to 6 hours in some cases. The Alameda County Sheriff’s Department then sent demonstrators through a lengthy jail booking pro-

cess, even though in similar circumstances, arrestees have typically been cited and released. They were placed in overcrowded, temporary holding cells with no beds and no chairs. “People needed medical attention that they didn’t get,” Lederman said.

action suit to receive somewhere around $4,500 each in settlement payments. In addition to the monetary payment, the settlement agreement reaffirms and reincorporates OPD’s crowd control policy for up to seven years. That policy dates back to 2004, when the NLG and the American Civil Liberties Union jointly drafted the regulations in the wake of an anti-war demonstration where police fired rubber bullets into the crowd, resulting in serious injuries and intense scrutiny on the police department’s practices. While OPD complied with the crowd control policy in the first years after it was implemented, Lederman said, there were relatively few mass mobilizations in the streets of Oakland until those mounted in response to the Oscar Grant shooting. Those street demonstrations were followed by 2011 mass marches organized in conjunction with the Occupy movement. “Our primary goal, and our clients’ primary goal, was to stop” unlawful police practices that violated OPD’s crowd control policy,

HELPING OR HURTING GREEN SPACE LIBERATION? Did the recent activist occupation of a temporary urban farming plot help “liberate the land,” as the occupiers claimed, or might it actually make property owners less likely to allow community-based temporary uses on land awaiting development? And did the farmers of this oncefallow land inadvertently provide a new toehold to challenge a proposed housing project? Promptly after Hayes Valley Farm ended its three-year stint to make way for long-planned housing that would be built on the lot, a group of activists (many from Occupy San Francisco) calling itself Liberate the Land took residency for nearly two weeks, renaming it Gezi Gardens in solidarity with CONTINUES ON PAGE 12 >>

protesters at Taksim Square in Turkey. At 2am on June 13, Gezi Gardens was raided by police and the activists ejected. The rise and fall of Gezi Gardens has had some people within the San Francisco urban agriculture community questioning whether or not the occupation was helpful in promoting the cause for more green space in the city. For some involved in the urban agriculture community, the end of Hayes Valley Farm reflects a not-so-distant future for other green spaces in the community. Pastor Megan Rohrer is executive director of Welcome: A Communal Response to Poverty and project coordinator for The Free Farm, a community garden on St. Paulus Lutheran Churchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s land on Gough and Eddy Street. That plot, temporarily turned into green space with permission from the landlord, St. Paulus Lutheran Church, is scheduled to end its three-year stint in December to make way for housing construction, much like Hayes Valley Farm. The Free Farmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s land will sprout a housing project with all low-

income housing units, whereas the project being built on the Hayes Valley Farm site will have 40 lowincome units out of 180 total condos. Regardless, the possibility of a similar situation to what happened with Hayes Valley Farm has Rohrer on edge. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have a nervous feeling that what happened with Hayes Valley Farm may happen with my garden. I just want everything to end smoothly and peacefully,â&#x20AC;? Rohrer said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I respect what the Occupy folks are doing in bringing awareness, but feel that what they did was a little disingenuous. Since the start of Hayes Valley Farm, there was an understanding that condos would be built over it. It was going to happen eventually.â&#x20AC;? Longtime San Francisco activist Diamond Dave Whitaker was one of the people that occupied Gezi Gardens. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not sure if the occupation will be prove helpful to the urban agriculture movement in San Francisco. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not sure. What I do know is that Gezi Gardens was one of the few wild spaces left here,â&#x20AC;? Whitaker said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Not everything has to be done within the law. Time will tell if what

happened there helped urban agriculture here.â&#x20AC;? Assemblymember Phil Ting (D-SF) is also weighing in on the discussion of urban green spaces in the city. Although he does not

â&#x20AC;&#x153;what I do belIeve Is that we should be doIng what we can to keep green spaces In san FrancIsco.â&#x20AC;? assemblymember phIl tIng have a stance on the occupation of Gezi Gardens, he has made strides in trying to make urban agriculture more accessible with San Franciscoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Urban Agriculture Incentive Zones Act, Assembly Bill 551. It calls for property owners to sign a contract that would zone their land strictly for agriculture for 10 years in exchange for decreased

property taxes. Ting doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t necessarily support those who occupied Gezi Gardens, but said this: â&#x20AC;&#x153;What I do believe is that we should be doing what we can to keep green spaces in San Francisco.â&#x20AC;? Some groups in the city may respect what the Liberate the Lands attempts at occupying Gezi Gardens, but the politically active Hayes Valley Neighborhood Association wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t one of them. On June 7, nearly a week before the raid of Gezi Gardens, HVNA President William Bulkley penned a letter to Mayor Ed Lee, pleading to end the occupation of that land: â&#x20AC;&#x153;The HVNA board of directors feels that the current situation on Parcels O and P places a health and safety risk to both the participants and our neighbors. We respectfully request that, as mayor, you direct your staff to take appropriate action in a swift and timely fashion.â&#x20AC;? Yet Rohrer also said Occupy activists are a much-needed part of San Franciscoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s urban agriculture community. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because of the hard work from people who have been connected to Occupy that spaces, like the Free Farm, are run-

ning,â&#x20AC;? Rohrer said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a lot of Occupy folk who volunteer that put their hearts and souls into the soil.â&#x20AC;? There are efforts to halt building on Gezi Gardens, though many of the people who had occupied the lot have â&#x20AC;&#x153;scattered to the wind,â&#x20AC;? Whitaker said. Mona Lisa Wallace, an attorney working with Liberate the Land, is attempting to halt construction based on the grounds that an accurate environmental impact report was not done because the land was found to be exempt from a more current report. Wallace said the last report was done five years ago when Parcels O and P were classified as â&#x20AC;&#x153;disturbed land.â&#x20AC;? Since then, plants and wildlife have flourished on Hayes Valley Farm. She said an appeal to the exemption from a current environmental impact report will be filed at the the Board of Supervisorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office on Friday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Over the years a habitat has been created for hummingbirds, bees, crows, and quail,â&#x20AC;? Wallace said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The exemption from the environmental impact report does not free them from being in compliance with federal and state law.â&#x20AC;? (Erin Dage)

4BNFTFYNBSSJBHFSVMJOHIJUT4BO'SBODJTDPPOUIFFWFPG1SJEF By Steven t. JoneS steve@sfbg.com NEWS As San Franciscoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s LGBT community and its supporters prepared for Pride Weekend, the whole city was anxiously awaiting the imminent US Supreme Court ruling on same-sex marriage. That case began here more than nine years ago when then-Mayor Gavin Newsom decided to let gay and lesbian couples marry and the City Attorneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office launched a long and torturous legal battle. The synchronous timing of the two events couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be better. (Well, it could have been better for the Bay Guardianâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s deadline if the ruling has come out June 25, instead of just as this issue was hitting the streets on June 26, but you can read our full, live coverage at www.sfbg.com.) LGBT activists are planning a massive rally at Castro and Market streets starting at 6:30pm on June 26, along with another performance stage at Market and 19th streets featuring Donna Sachet emceeing performances ranging from DJs to drag and other live performances, like an early start to an already packed Pride Weekend. (For more info, see www. dayofdecision.org.) Of course, at press time it was still unclear whether weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d see a joyous springboard for a raucous Pride that many are hoping for, with total victory and marriage equality becoming the law of the land; a bitter repudiation of LGBT rights reminiscent of Nov. 4, 2008, when the street celebrations over President Barack Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s election victory were tempered by frustration over voters approving Prop. 8 and banning same-sex marriage; or something in between. The ruling will cap a see-sawing legal and political battle for which the City Attorneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office calculates it has written more than a half-million pages of legal briefings for more than 50 judges at various levels, including four trips before the California Supreme Court in four separate but related cases before making arguments to the US Supreme Court in March. If the ruling doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t legalize same-sex marriage in California, activists say theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll immediately return the struggle back into the political arena and use the momentum of the ruling (and the three states that legalized same-sex marriage this year, bringing the total to 12) to win at the ballot box (it would take a popular vote to undo Prop. 8). If that happens, look for our own Sen. Mark Leno â&#x20AC;&#x201D; who got the California Legislature to approve his legislation legalizing same-sex marriage, editorials

twice, only to have it vetoed by then-Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger â&#x20AC;&#x201D; to play a lead role. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The only option is to re-amend the constitution to eliminate the discriminatory Prop. 8,â&#x20AC;? Leno told us. That measure could be placed on the 2014 ballot by either the Legislature or an initiative, which Leno said will be decision for the coalition of same-sex marriage supporters. There are benefits and drawbacks to both options. Gathering signatures for an initiative is expensive, but that effort would also help launch the campaign to win over California voters. In the Legislature, four supportive Democrats will likely move to other offices this year, including a Senator and Assemblymember who are each joining the Los Angeles City Council, but Leno is still confident. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We stand prepared with legislation already drafted to move forward with a bill if thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what the coalition decides,â&#x20AC;? Leno said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And we are confident we have the 27 votes we need [in the Senate], maybe even 28.â&#x20AC;? City Attorneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office Press Secretary Matt Dorsey has been doing regular email briefings for journalists who are here from around the world, ready to report from the place where it all began as soon as the ruling comes down. City Attorney Dennis Herrera, Chief Deputy City Attorney Terry Stewart, and their team are prepared to analyze the ruling as soon as it is released just after 7am (Pacific time) and to deliver the first press briefing on the steps of City Hall at 7:30-8am, followed by another press conference on the ruling that Mayor Ed Lee called for 9am. Dissecting the ruling could be a tricky task given that there at least four major scenarios that the ruling could trigger, each of those with lots of sub-scenarios that depend on the scope and details of the ruling. Everything for legalizing same-sex marriage across the country to a technical ruling that kicks it all back to a lower court are possible. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In 10 years [working for the City Attorneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office], Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m never seen an outcome that could go in so many different directions,â&#x20AC;? Dorsey told us. If the ruling invalidates Prop. 8, that decision would be formalized in about a month, then returning jurisdiction over the case to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeal, which will then issue a formal notice of decision that gives it the force of law, according to a June 11 memo the City Attorneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office wrote for other city officials. It notes, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Depending on how the Supreme Court decides the case, marriages could resume as soon as mid-to-late July.â&#x20AC;? 2

The Hot Pink List 2013 Our annual tribute to queers who grabbed our attention and held it

ACT-UPPERS AIDS-era nostalgia gripped popular culture recently with several acclaimed documentaries (including Oscarnominated How to Survive a Plague Plague) and the Tony-winning revival of Larry Kramer’s play “A Normal Heart” (soon to be an HBO movie with Julia Roberts). But a new generation was also rediscovering the disruptive tactics of ACT-UP. That highly effective, emotionally inspiring AIDS activist organization turned 25 last year, and ACT-UP SF (www.facebook.com/ ACTUPSF) relaunched with a new agenda: combating queer homelessness and evictions, the criminalization of HIV and sex work, transphobia and discrimination, and astronomical HIV drug prices. Through direct actions and colorful street protests, ACT-UP SF renewed the intergenerational spirit of queer community.

HIP-HOP NATION If anything will tip the scale when it comes to mainstream hip-hop’s acceptance of pansexual twerking in its midst (hi, Frank Ocean and Mykki Blanco), it will be the simple fact that this new class of queers just brings the game better: pops ass more profoundly, wears the shit out of some Hood By Air, and can channel Aaliyah, Slick Rick, and Le1f on the same track. In the Bay (site of many early LGBT hip-hop pioneers), queer rap shines: Monthly El Rio twerkfest Swagger Like Us and new party-on-theblock R U That Somebody spin vogue circles with 2 Chainz, and strong female rappers like RawG, Aima the Dreamer, and Micah Tron bang out sharp lyrics and catchy hooks. Those looking for more theoretical grounding found power this year at La Peña Cultural Cultural Center’s Hip Hop Beyond Gender event series, where intersectionalities of class, race, and gender joined in unstoppable flow. 14 SAN FRANCISCO BAY GUARDIAN

BOOT BLACKS Midway through Folsom Street’s dark Powerhouse leather bar, you’ll find the bootblack, toiling away with a kit of rags and polish — break out your Stompers for a sublime shine. “What I’ve learned is that for me, bootblacking is religion,” says sevenyear bootblacker Ms. V. “What I do is simple, slow, and uncluttered — and it reveres the authenticity of the boot and shoe above all.” She was first introduced to bootblacking seven years ago at Folsom Street Fair. “What a mystical experience seeing this polishsmeared wizard at work,” she recalls. “I wondered if I could do this with a female sensibility.” Bootblacking has long been the purview of males, but Ms. V embarked on her journey to learn the craft from leather community members and old school shoeshine experts anyway. She picked up a protege, Luna, with whom she teams up to keep leather footwear in prime condition. It’s COMICS a business transaction, driven by pasGEEKS sion, power, and polish. “There is It’s been a big a dance that goes on between year for queer comthe customer and me,” ics. A movie based on a says Ms. V. lesbian comic book, Blue is the Warmest Color, swept the top prizes at Cannes. The first textbook history of queer comics No Straight Lines was released by local hero Justin Hall, and snagged the Lambda Literary Award for Best Anthology. Heck, even Green Lantern went queer in “Earth Two,” and there was a gay wedding in Archie’s hometown, Riverdale . Here in the Bay, of course, comics have been queer for decades: from the pioneering work of Mary Wings and Lee Marrs in the 1970s to a lively slew of young upstarts, eager to expand the genre. Take, for example, this year’s packed “Batman on Robin” show, curated by Hall and Rick Worley, which imagined the Dynamic Duo in comic contortions that had many saying, “Shazam!”

DRAG PHANTASMS Hip-hop swagger meets goth-electro darkness, with the specters of legendary club disturber Leigh Bowery and e-art wunderkind Ryan Trecartin shimmering over the proceedings. But why stop there? Add in agitating performance art hijinks and a fundamental decontextualization of drag practices rooted in the shivery, negative emotions that the Internet pukes up on our screens. The new drag generation CONTINUES ON PAGE 18 >>

mask by SomersetBean

We are Bradley Manning This year, SF Pride’s electoral college chose queer Wikileaker Bradley Manning (currently facing court martial) to be a 2013 Pride community grand marshal for the celebration. The SF Pride Board, however, negated this appointment, citing its devotion to the military and attempting to silence a large portion of the community. A contingent of Manning supporters will march at the Pride parade on June 30 (details here: www.tinyurl.com/ manningpride). The Trans March (June 28, www.transmarch. org) and Dyke March (June 29, www. dykemarch.org) have both issued statements supporting Manning. Clip out this mask and support free speech and transparency at Pride. Instructions •C  ut along dashed line. • Poke a small hole on each side of Manning’s head, near the ears. • L oop string through holes and knot the ends.

CHOW NOW

(( 2012 ( ( BEST BURRITOS ( ( (

Due to open any day now in the former El DelfĂ­n space on 24th Street is La Movida (3066 24th St. SF. www.lamovidasf.com), a brand-new project from Michael Meadows. While its name sounds like a hot discoteca (hits hits hits!), itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s actually a wine-focused bar, with 12 wines on tap (almost all from California) and 20 by the bottle, plus three local craft beers on tap, including one from local homies Cerveceria de MateVeza. You can graze on some small plates in the evening, like charcuterie, cheese, a few different flatbreads, and chorizo corndogs (yeah, those sound hella good). Since many ingredients are being sourced from the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;hood, keep your eyes peeled for items like bread pudding made with Dynamo Donuts (yes, please) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and tamales from La Palma are also looking likely. During the day, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be able to order sandwiches from Jeff Mason of Palâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Take-Away, who moved the business over from Tonyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Market, which means you can now actually find a seat while sinking your choppers into one of Palâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s killer sandwiches, how novel.

There will also be some pop-ups on Tuesday evenings, stand by. The space is outfitted in a cheerful orange, and El DelfĂ­nâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s murals have been cleverly repurposed to form the tabletops. Hours for Palâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s will be Monâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Fri 11amâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;3pm, and for La Movida Sunâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Thu 4:30pmâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;11pm and Friâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Sat 4:30pmâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;12am. The owners of The Sycamore in the Mission have opened a second project in SoMa, The Willows (1582 Folsom, SF.) in the former Mercury Lounge. The bar menu features handcrafted cocktails, plus a â&#x20AC;&#x153;beer denâ&#x20AC;? with 12 taps of rare beers (you can currently order up the Hitachino Nest Commemorative Ale from Japan). Fans of the menu of American classic vittles at The Sycamore will find a similar spread here, plus new additions like fried chicken and meatloaf. Some of you SF oldtimers will remember the location as Hamburger Maryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, so youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll get the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Maryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s burgerâ&#x20AC;? hat tip on the menu. When youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not busy stuffing your face, you can pretend youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re on the prowl for dinner with the Big Buck Hunter videogame, plus there are pinball machines and a pool table. Or just jam something on the old-fashioned jukebox while you enjoy your adult beverage.

ally. On Thursday June 27th, chef Jonny Becklund at Mr. Pollo (2823 Mission, SF) in the Mission is offering a very, um, shall we say sack-tastic dinner called Balls Deep. Hey, if you need a reason to throw (or attend) a four-course testicles dinner, why not do it in honor of Pride? Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be able to experience this ballsy dinner for $35 per person at two seatings: one at 6pm and another at 8pm. So, you in? Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t leave â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;em hanging. Reservations can be made by calling 860-912-9168.

YOU GOTTA EAT THIS Fans of beef tartare â&#x20AC;&#x201D; you know who you are â&#x20AC;&#x201D; may want to check out the new MKT Restaurantâ&#x20AC;&#x201C; Bar at the Four Seasons Hotel (757 Market St., Fifth Floor, SF.) the next time a hankering for some raw beef hits. (Hey, it happens.) Chef Mark Richardsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s version here is nicely executed: Five Dot Ranch beef is seasoned beautifully, with a raw Red Hill Farm egg yolk on top that you have the honor of swirling into the beef yourself. You can slather the tartare on the grilled Acme bread, but I recommend a forkful of it right from the Weck jar to fully appreciate its silky and savory charms. 2 Marcia Gagliardi is the founder of the weekly tablehopper e-column. subscribe for more at tablehopper.com.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Aâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; for effort? BY CRYSTAL SYKES culture@sfbg.com COCKTAILS Novela, the new literarythemed lounge in SoMa, is undoubtedly beautiful: plenty of window light pours in during the evening, highlighting tall black shelves packed full of color-coordinated books. The space, a collaboration between acclaimed bar stars Alex Smith and Kate Bolton, is littered with huge, cozy reading chairs as well as low comfy couches. But my friend and I just somehow felt out of place. Perhaps this was a case of misplaced expectations: this wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the bar atmosphere I envisioned at all. With dance music (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Is this MGMT?â&#x20AC;? my friend asked as we sat down) blaring at around 7pm on a Tuesday, and an all-female service staff dressed in tight black clothing with gold jewelry accents and very high heels, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fair to say this place lacked the unshowy intimacy I associate with reading. Despite our unease in the party environment, we decided to stay and give the libations a try. Novela has several â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cocktails with Characterâ&#x20AC;? on its menu, named for famous literary figures (duh). But it prides itself in its punches â&#x20AC;&#x201D; six on tap, all made with fresh seasonal ingredients. Since the cognac punch was unavailable, I settled for a glass of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tequillaâ&#x20AC;? (as spelled on the menu) punch while my friend, Michelle, tasted the gin one. Both werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t anything to write home about. Tequilla was just not my cup of tea â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the tequila, mezcal, hibiscus, grapefruit, and lime failed to gel â&#x20AC;&#x201D; while I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t remember much about the gin punch. Maybe it had too much rhubarb. Michelle and I pondered the thought of a book-themed bar having a typo on editorials

news

the menu, however deliberate, and realized that it perfectly encapsulated our thoughts of the place so far. Once the after-work crowd poured out, we settled into some reading chairs near the back of the bar and ordered more drinks. This is when we found ourselves in the middle of a light show â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the lights behind the book-filled walls started flashing, as did those along glass and metal liquor shelves. Disco time! And with that, I suddenly felt like Novela was the one out of place. I can appreciate wanting to expand the notion of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;library bar,â&#x20AC;? of which our city has many examples, from the library at Bourbon and Branch to Two Sisters in Hayes Valley. But with Novela, I just plain could not see the purpose. San Francisco is a city rich with culture and character, and none of that is reflected here. It felt artificial: all flash and no substance, right down to the cocktail menu (every high school sophomore knows a drink named after Jay Gatsby should be based on gin, not bourbon) and the forced sorority-esque look of the staff. Back to the drinks: Michelle ordered the Atticus Finch with bourbon, Earl Grey honey, and bitters â&#x20AC;&#x201D; she originally ordered the piscobased Sherlock Holmes but the birch beer was too overwhelming â&#x20AC;&#x201D; while I ordered that Jay Gatsby, with bourbon, scotch, amaretto, calisaya, and nocino. They were both nice but, again, didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t quite make the grade. In the end, Michelle and I walked out into the night with more questions than answers â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a mark of great literature, perhaps, but not of great bars. 2

THE SELECTOR WEDNESDAY 6/26 DITA VON TEESE

With a seductive and sexy nod to the past, modern pin-up and burlesque queen Dita Von Teese has been at the forefront of reviving a nearly lost art form for two decades now. Bringing back the sense of classic style and glamour of the golden days of Hollywood

and meshing it with the tantalizing teasing of the old-time burlesque circuit, Von Teese returns to the city this week with her “Burlesque: Strip, Strip, Hooray!” show, a live revue featuring not only her own titillating talents, but a host of other performers as well, including Dirty Martini, Catherine D’Lish, and Lada Nikolska from the legendary “Crazy Horse Paris.” (Sean McCourt) Through Fri/28, 7:30pm, $40 Fillmore 1805 Geary, SF (415) 346-6000 www.thefillmore.com

“HARVEY MILK 2013”

The San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus, the world’s first chorus comprised of openly gay men, had its first unofficial public performance at a candlelight vigil for Harvey Milk. The group has since become known for its dazzling holiday concerts, but its historical origins mean it’s fitting that — as part of its 35th anniversary celebration — SFGMC is presenting the world premiere of I Am Harvey Milk. Starring its composer Andrew Lippa as Milk, with guest soprano Laura Benanti, this blend of theater and choral works traces the courageous life of the slain politician, with accompaniment by the Bay Area Rainbow Symphony.

FRIDAY 6/28 Indie-folk rocker group Y La Bamba has been steadily building a fan base over the past couple of years, earning high praise from NPR and loaning songs to television programs such as Bones. The Portlandbased band’s hauntingly rich and ethereal sound is propelled by singer-songwriter Luzelena Mendoza, whose vocals float and weave tales above Latin-inspired rhythms and unique backing vocals. Its latest full-length album, last year’s Court The Stormwas produced by Los Lobos member Steve Berlin, and an excellent EP, Oh February was released this January. (McCourt)

For folks who love to sweat, there’s no better way to celebrate Pride than with veteran LGBT running club the San Francisco FrontRunners, who’ve hosted this event for over three decades. Choose the 5K or the 10K by asking yourself “How many times do I want to haul ass up that hilly stretch of Golden Gate Park’s JFK Drive?” — but remember, the emphasis here is mos def on fun. Sure, some speed demons do turn out (last year’s 5K winner clocked in at just over 18 minutes), but casual joggers are also in effect, as are Pink Saturday-themed athletic ensembles. Upbeat DJs and tasty food at the finish line add to the festive atmosphere. (Eddy)

With vocalist and longtime collaborator Nancy Whang, MacLean released the cool, classy “You Are My Destiny” this March, completing a shift that may have taken root as far back as 2011 with his Peach Melba side project. Transitions are standard practice for the former hardcore guitarist turned electronic music artist, who has collaborated with LCD Soundsystem, !!!, and Holy Ghost! and remixed Yoko Ono and Stevie Nicks. In the midst of a relentless international tour schedule, MacLean signaled his return to dance music prominence earlier this month with a set on BBC Radio 1’s prestigious Essential Mix program.

GROUP HUGS FOR AUSTRA (LEFT) AND MAGIC MOUTH. AUSTRA PHOTO BY NORMAN WONG; MAGIC MOUTH PHOTO BY MEGAN HOLMES

Devil may care

BY EMILY SAVAGE emilysavage@sfbg.com TOFU AND WHISKEY Unlike most anticipated albums these days, Austra’s sophomore LP, Olympia (June 18, Domino Records), came out in gleaming little drops. There were no leaked full downloads — at least, nothing massively widespread. But the sparkly bits that did trickle out, namely first single “Home” and its follow-up, “Painful Like,” were enough to build interest. The Canadian synth-pop sixpiece already had a built-in audience, thanks to 2011’s Feel It Break, mostly created by darkly operatic lead vocalist Katie Stelmanis, former Trust vocalist Maya Postepski on drums, and bassist Dorian Wolf, and made almost exclusively on a computer. Now a more fully realized unit using live instrumentation, the group, which also includes keyboardist Ryan Wonsiak and supernatural twin backing vocalists Sari and Romy Lightman, created the lush, full-bodied second record together in a studio. And it shows: there’s a richness to the sound. There’s a steady dance beat throughout the record, with the addition of sounds like cowbells and even more barreling percussion underneath all those moody vocals wailings and subtle piano keys. “We have so much percussion on the album, I had days where I would just play all day,” Postepski says from Switzerland, on the group’s brief tour through Europe. “I think it added to the richness to it, and the realness of the sound. As much as it is an electronic record, we wanted it to have a balance with real instruments.” That first released track “Home” seduced critics earlier this spring with a more upbeat style than typical of Austra, yet the lyrics are again deeply personal for Stelmanis, about someone not coming home at night because they’re out getting wasted, and the desperate feeling of waiting for that person to return. Sonically, second single, “Painful Like” gets more to the core of what the group does best, meshing gothy dancefloor-ready beats and bubbly synth with crashing drums and Stelmanis’ otherworldly vocals on display. The lyrics were inspired by “the disillusionment of growing up gay in a small town and finding solace in the arms of a lover.” Stelmis told Spinner in 2011, “Indie music is funny. It’s really not as queer positive as you would think. In a lot of ways, it’s very cen28 SAN FRANCISCO BAY GUARDIAN

tered around white men, basically. I just want there to be space for gays.” She seems to have taken that to heart on Olympia, including even more of herself than on Feel it Break. “The lyrics on the new album are personal, intimate reflections of what Stelmanis is going through,” Postepski says. The new record contains hints of other moody synth-based projects like former tourmate Grimes, the Knife, and Zola Jesus, though Postepski says she almost exclusively listens to music made before 1995, specifically Grace Jones and David Bowie. She does make an exception for British techno producer Andy Stott. “That’s where all the super low bassy stuff comes from,” she explains. While many of the tracks follow the same formula, Olympia is packed with emotional dancefloor moments. It’s the kind of record that could soundtrack a crying fit in a dark club bathroom, mascara bleeding down the face, strangers surrounding the mirror, all of the drama inherent in nightlife, then follow the main character triumphantly back out onto the floor. “As much as it is a serious album, there’s a lot of playfulness as well,” Postepski says. “I think we struck a good balance.” Austra, which has toured internationally with groups like the XX, Grimes, and the Gossip will test the balance on a quick jaunt through the States, only stopping in a few major cities. One lucky enclave is San Francisco — the group plays here EDITORIALS

this weekend (Wed/26, 8pm, sold out. Independent, 628 Divisadero, SF). Noted for its creative use of stage layout and synchronized twin dance movements (“they’re kind of like our cheerleaders!”), Austra has a lot to live up to at its live shows. Postepski tells me this very short tour includes a massive, beautiful new backdrop, rented from the Chinese Opera Group in Toronto. “People are having fun at the shows. I just want it to be a dance party, you know?” Postepski says. There’s another group traveling to San Francisco this week that also will likely be filling up the dancefloor — and, coincidentally, also has toured with the Gossip — Magic Mouth. To get a taste of the explosive energy Magic Mouth exudes, check the YouTube video “MAGIC MOUTH LIVE: MISSISSIPPI STUDIOS,” it’s like watching James Brown front a garagepunk band. The lively Portland, Ore. queer soul-punk quartet will play Hard French Hearts Los Homos (an event described by DJ Carnita as “an intergalactic Pride Party for all the gayliens who love to dance in outer space”). Magic Mouth will open for fellow Northwesterners, Seattle’s THEESatisfaction at the event hosted by Lil Miss Hot Mess (Sun/30, 4-11pm, $20. Roccapulco, 3140 Mission, SF; hardfrenchpride2013. eventbrite.com). This will be the band’s second time in SF, after stopping by El Rio last fall. But other tours have taken the group around the country opening for the Gossip, and JD Sampson’s MEN. FOOD + DRINK

THE SELECTOR

Magic Mouth has a glut of reasons to be keyed up for the SF show. “I’m really looking forward to playing with THEESatisfaction. We’ve been admirers of theirs from afar for a minute and in kind of the same music community,” says frontperson Chanticleer Trü. “And also to celebrate at Hard French, because we love what they do.” Guitarist Peter Condra adds, “And I’m excited to play a party that’s dedicated to a political cause, which is Bradley Manning. With what went down in San Francisco Pride, I think that fueled the organizers’ enthusiasm about the topic and I want to help them create awareness in any way we can as a band. I think it’s cool they took a stance on that.” A crash course on those events: The LGBTQ community was torn apart when the SF Pride Board rescinded the election of Wikileaker Bradley Manning to the position of Community Grand Marshal at this year’s Pride celebration. There are planned actions and marches in support of Manning (see page 23) at the Pride parade, June 30. So yes, Magic Mouth comes to us on a mission of both solidarity and fun. And likely, to gain new fans. The group’s electric Believer EP saw release in 2012, and now it’s in the process of finishing up another, Devil May Care, which was funded with $10,000 raised through Kickstarter. The foursome worked on the record with Nathan Howdeshell and Hannah Blilie of the Gossip, who walked the band through the process, gave feedMUSIC

back, and connected Magic Mouth with a producer. Devil May Care will be released on vinyl in late summer. “I’m really proud of this record,” Trü says. Drummer Ana Briseño says, “Yeah, I think it’s taking us into the next level, a little more grownup, of taking this band seriously. The quality of the recording, and getting to put it out on vinyl, and being able to be involved in the artwork — I think we’re really lucky and not a lot of bands make it to that point.” “In comparison to our first EP, which we recorded like, between two of our friends’ bedroom studios,” Trü says. “It’s definitely been an evolution, and this time around I feel like we really captured the type of energy we bring to a live performance.” The band formed in 2010 when Briseño and guitarist Peter Condra met and started talking about music — Nina Simone being the uniting interest. Briseño and Condra started playing garage rock versions of Simone songs, and eventually created their own, which brought them to Trü and bassist Brendan Scott (Condra and Scott had played together before in a cover band). “And Trü was definitely feeling the Nina Simone thing we were channeling,” Condra says. The group says it’s now actualizing its influences. The band members have already played with one influence in the Gossip and is about to play with another in THEESatisfaction, but future goal spots would be alongside Erykah Badu or Blood Orange. I mishear Trü, thinking he mentioned Beyonce also, so ask for clarification. He laughs and says, “no, but you must be reading my mind.”

THE WHITE BARONS/WILD EYES Some background: local Southern fried rock group (“by way of Atlanta, Jakarta, and two Midwest podunk towns”) the White Barons includes members of Thee Merry Widows, Winter Teeth, and Whiskey Dick Darryls, and SF’s Wild Eyes recently opened for King Khan and BBQ Show at Slim’s. This Bender’s show is a party for a few things: it’s the birthday of Bender’s doorperson and Subliminal SF booker Mikey Madfes, it’s a split seven-inch release celebration for the White Barons and Wild Eyes, and lastly, there’s a band vs. band chili cookoff (if you buy a record, you’ll get a chili sample). So you know it’s going to be a messy mix of raucous rock’n’roll and tender cooked meats. Sat/29, 10pm, $5. Bender’s Bar and Grill, 806 S. Van Ness, SF; www.bendersbar.com. 2

WILL WIESENFELD TAKES A BRAVE, UNEXPECTED STEP INTO THE FOG.

editorials



news

BY DANIEL ALVAREZ arts@sfbg.com MUSIC Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s amazing what a difference two years makes. In June of 2011, I packed into a sweaty club in Silver Lake to see an up-and-coming glitch producer by the name of Baths (nĂŠ Will Wiesenfeld) perform a triumphant home-town gig. Preceded by similarly buzzy beatsmiths like Shlohmo and Groundislava, Wiesenfeld spent the hour-long set hiding behind a table full of laptops and sequencers, pairing aggressive, wildly vacillating beats with heady melodies and his Sigur RĂłs-ian falsetto. While the show was a viscerally arresting experience, it was severely lacking in personality â&#x20AC;&#x201D; painting its young architect as a musician much more interested in crafting a unique sonic aesthetic than baring his soul. Fast forward almost two years, and Wiesenfeld has released an intimate, crushingly personal second album. Obsidian is a harrowing journey into the fractured psyche of an naked young artist, a complete 180 from his beat-driven, somewhat opaque debut, Cerulean. Though there were signs that he was moving in a new direction â&#x20AC;&#x201D; notably the brilliant â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pop Songâ&#x20AC;? from his 2011 odds-and-ends LP, Pop Music/ False B-Sides â&#x20AC;&#x201D; it is a brave, unexpected step forward for the 24-year-old. The Tarzana, Calif.-native strips back the eclectic, maximalist sound of his early work in favor of down-tempo, sparse, vocal-driven numbers. The confessional lyrics come thick and fast, beginning with the bleak, shadowy, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Worsening.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Where is God when you hate him most? / food + Drink

the selector

When the coughs in the earth come to bite at my robes,â&#x20AC;? emotes the stricken singer-songwriter, after admitting that he â&#x20AC;&#x153;might try to die.â&#x20AC;? During the time he was supposed to be working on Obsidian, Wiesenfeld was struck down by a vicious bout of E. Coli. His struggle with the debilitating disease is chronicled throughout the album, no more so than on its opener. Lyrically, much of Obsidian is explosive, cathartic, and sometimes frankly uncomfortable, and they arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just related to his illness. The stand-out third track, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ironworks,â&#x20AC;? is a beautiful song of denied love. Driven by a glorious string line and a cascade of piano â&#x20AC;&#x201D; which recalls Ryuichi Sakamoto at times â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Wiesenfeld tells the story of a man (presumably, him) falling in love with a married man, who denies his love and returns to the comfort of his wife after their relationship. Alone in the end, Wiesenfeld cries, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am sweet swine. / And no man is ever mine.â&#x20AC;? Throughout the album, he touches on anonymous sex, abuse, nihilism, and everything in between â&#x20AC;&#x201D; often playing the role of perpetrator. Lyrics like, â&#x20AC;&#x153;And I never see your face, but I just might be okay with that. / Because I have no eyes, I have no love, I have no hope. / And it is not a matter of if you mean it. / But it is only a matter of come and fuck me.â&#x20AC;? At early listens, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s difficult to imagine such a bubbly, gregarious character saying these salacious things. Trent Reznor, Kanye West, sure. A chubby, bespectacled kid from the Valley, not so much. And though there is a lot of darkness on Obsidian, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not all music

stage

sour times. Compositionally, the classically-trained pianist is capable of crafting mellifluous, lush arraignments and soaring vocal melodies. He also loves to cake on layers of woozy percussive droplets, giving his tracks a propulsive, cinematic quality. Though much of the album is of the down-tempo variety, he freshens things up with a few curve-balls, namely on the aggressive, industrialinfluenced, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Earth Death,â&#x20AC;? and the Postal Service churn of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ossuary.â&#x20AC;? Wiesenfeld will be debuting much of this material this to the Bay Area this week, when his tour with buzzy, Chicago-based duo, Houses rolls into the Great American Music Hall. His choice of opening acts reflects his musical shift, as Houses craft reflective, affecting mood music â&#x20AC;&#x201D; quite a bit different than the hip-hop/dance stylings of the artists who flanked him two years ago. While the laptop is likely to make an appearance, there will be plenty of live instrumentation on show with Wiesenfeld spending time on the keyboards and bandmate Morgan Greenwood taking on a few different instruments. It will be fascinating to see how he handles his new direction, but you can guarantee that the effusive, passionate performer will be pouring his heart into his show, the same way he poured it into Obsidian. 2 BATHS With Houses, D33J Sat/29, 9pm, $16 Great American Music Hall 859 Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Farrell, SF (415) 885-0750 www.slimspresents.com

What’s hot in Siberia )JHIQPJOUTBMPOHUIFUSBJMPGB3VTTJBOUIFBUFSFYDVSTJPO By RoBeRt AvilA arts@sfbg.com THEATER Emerald green rooftops and gold domes enliven the skyline of Omsk, a provincial city and former Soviet industrial hub of roughly one million people, located at the intersection of two Siberian rivers: the wide, island-populated Irtysh and the smaller, swifter Om. The latter gave its name to the town, which grew from a fort established at the meeting point of the rivers in 1716, back when this was the disputed frontier of the expanding Russian empire. But now it’s the last week of May 2013. The fort is long gone. In its place stands the Lighthouse, a large white hotel-cum–shopping mall festively crowned with neon Cyrillic lettering. Rounded at one end and peaked with towers, it drolly resembles a cruise ship in port. The sun is still out at 10 p.m., and a gusty wind rolling off the plains churns the warm air pleasantly. Sleepy though this town seems by comparison with St. Petersburg, Moscow, or even Yekaterinburg — the three other stops on a fourcity tour I joined last month, in conjunction with a US-Russia theater dialogue developed by the Center for International Theatre Development — Omsk turns out to be not so remote in many ways. For one thing, it’s a hotbed of theatrical activity at the moment, with the biennial Young Theaters of Russia Festival in full swing. Nor is the Russian empire entirely a thing of the past, as tonight’s provocation by a troupe from the former Yugoslav republic of Slovenia makes plain enough. Damned be the Traitor of His Homeland! — a production of Ljubljana’s internationally renowned experimental company, Mladinsko Theatre — is a no-holds-barred attack on jingoism, xenophobia, and the false allegiances they promote, as well as on complacency in the face of recent history, government corruption, and social decay. Taking its title from the last verse of the former Yugoslav national anthem, it gleefully lobs profanity, insult, accusation, nudity, a flurry of gunshots, and lots of local dirt (dug up for the occasion) at its unsuspecting audience — who frequently find themselves editorials

unnaturally exposed and singled out under merciless house lights. It begins quietly enough: its ten cast members onstage, reclining on the floor and clutching musical instruments, looking like a freshly slaughtered marching band — until the sound of breathing through a tuba begins a general stirring that quickly escalates into an instrumental movement titled, “Won’t Go Against My Brother.” Next, the cast introduces itself with ribald, pointed, self-effacing humor through their own imagined obituaries — each of which makes explicit reference to an imaginary production of “Hey, Slavs!” (in fact, the title of the Yugoslav anthem) directed by acclaimed Bosnian Croatian badboy director Oliver Frljic (in fact, the production’s own director). Cycling through various loosely related scenes, all built from improvisations, Damned delivers its pleas and gibes with a potent combination of muscular staging, lively wit, intrepid honesty, and moments of wrenching beauty. It produced some walkouts the night we saw it — many more the night before, reportedly — but its themes were undeniably urgent and its manner both raw and sure. This was all before Edward Snowden went public with details

of the NSA’s PRISM program or had arrived in Moscow from Hong Kong en route to some hoped-for political asylum abroad. But there was no denying the implications for any Americans in the audience as well. Omsk has nine large municipally funded or federally funded theaters, leaving far behind most American cities of a comparable or even much larger size. And in short it, and the Festival, had much more to offer beyond this one highlight, even if not as explicitly provocative or political in nature. (Those curious to learn more should know that Chris White, artistic director of Mugwumpin and the other San Franciscan on the tour, has written a series of reports on HowlRound with many further details). Highlights in Moscow included an exquisite production from leading director Dimitry Kymov (whose collaboration with Mikhail Baryshnikov, In Paris, came to Berkeley Rep last year). Based (like In Paris) on the work of famed Russian short story writer Ivan Bunin, Katya, Sonya, Polya, Galya, Vera, Olya, Tanya ... is an original production crafting a series of oddball, sometimes grim love stories into a kind of high art twist on Grand Guignol. Also utterly memorable was the best production of Hamlet I’d ever seen —staged in a ramshackle venue whose lobby was stuffed with a vaguely foul-smelling array of garage sale toys, Soviet kitsch, and other odds and ends, and whose stage was a small, low-ceilinged black box packed into the aisles with what appeared to be mainly teens. The theater and the production belong to famed Russian director and playwright Nikolay Kolyada. Somewhat infamous after his endorsement of Putin in the last elections (which points to one way in which Russian theater, offstage, can be nothing if not political), Kolyada delivers a decisive reading of Shakespeare’s play as a bald, barbaric parable of power — in an incredibly meticulous, distinct, and forceful style whose macabre wit brought to mind some weird admixture of Richard Foreman, Tim Burton, and Terry Gilliam. Whatever else it demonstrated, it showed the Bard’s play as utterly, repulsively, and compellingly contemporary — something too rarely accomplished in any language. 2 stage

40 SAN FRANCISCO BAY GUARDIAN

FILM/LIT A few weeks before our scheduled interview, Laura Albert mails me copies of 2000â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sarah and 2001â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s The Heart is Deceitful Above All Things. Inscribed on Heartâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s title page is a note: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thanks for being available to revelation.â&#x20AC;? The volumes are signed â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yours, LA and JTâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the latter, of course, referring to JT LeRoy, the identity under which Albert penned both books. That secretâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been out since late 2005, and has been dissected over and over. It even inspired a Law and Order episode. LeRoy, and his fantastically tragic back story (just out of his teens, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d survived drugs, homelessness, and prostitution en route to becoming the lit worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hottest wunderkind), were Albertâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s creations. She was the true author behind the best-sellers listed above, plus 2004â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Haroldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s End, dozens of magazine articles, an early script for Gus Van Santâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Elephant (2003), and numerous other works. (Meanwhile, the androgynous â&#x20AC;&#x153;JTâ&#x20AC;? that had been appearing in public was actually the half-sister of Albertâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s then-partner; she wrote her own tell-all in 2008.) On Albertâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website, there are tabs marked â&#x20AC;&#x153;Who is Laura Albert?â&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Who is JT LeRoy?â&#x20AC;? Both link to Albertâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s biography. Years have passed since lâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;affaire LeRoy, and Albert has moved through the experience in her own way. (Her business card lists her as â&#x20AC;&#x153;literary outlaw.â&#x20AC;?) Later this summer, Sarah will be reissued as an ebook, with a fairy tale-inspired cover by artist Matt Pipes. Albert also is working on her memoirs (though she doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like to use the word â&#x20AC;&#x153;memoirsâ&#x20AC;?), and tells me thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a documentary forthcoming from Jeff Feuerzeig, who made 2005â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s critically-acclaimed The Devil and Daniel Johnston. This weekend, Asia Argentoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2004 adaptation of The Heart is Deceitful Above All Things screens as part of the Clay Theatreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s midnight-movie series, with Albert and producer Chris Hanley in person, plus Argento via Skype. Sitting in her San Francisco kitchen, Albert eyes my tape recorder and admits sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d rather focus on the film, not JT â&#x20AC;&#x201D; though itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a topic that inevitably arises. Argento, Albert says, encountered Heart the way many LeRoy readers did, via word-of-mouth recommendation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She read the book and she didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know anything about JT. At the same time, a small publisher was putting out the book [in Italy], and they wanted to bring JT over,â&#x20AC;? Albert editorials

news

Still beating -BVSB"MCFSUBOEUIFCBMMBEPG+5-F3PZ recalls. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a weird coincidence. They were putting on an event, and they wanted to get someone to read. They had contacted Asia, and she already knew about the book, and she wanted not only to do this event, but to make the movie. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s funny because I thought Sarah would be the first [to become a film], because it was already optioned by Gus [Van Sant]. But Asia moved really fast. We went over to meet her, and I had turned down a lot of people. My feeling was, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s my baby and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m giving it up for adoption, and I saw that this was someone I could give my baby to.â&#x20AC;? Argento, the daughter of famed Italian horror director Dario Argento, is best-known stateside as an actor; previous to Heart, her directing experience was limited to short films and 2000â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s flamboyant Scarlet Diva. Once she decided to helm the movie, her decision to star as the free-spirited, needy, sometimes-cruel single mother of the storyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s young protagonist was an obvious choice. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had concerns about that, how much she would take on the role, how much it would become her. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ironic, because I had given myself over completely to Jeremy, to JT, to Jeremiah,â&#x20AC;? Albert says. She pauses. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Did you see that French film, about the guy who assumes different characters?â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Holy Motors?â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yeah! It really was transformative to me. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a scene where someone asks [the main character], â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Why are you still doing this?â&#x20AC;&#x2122;, and he makes reference to the act of giving yourself over completely. And that was it. I gave myself over completely. I did not break character. You food + Drink

know how, in that movie, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll do anything? Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll kill someone! Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in it. Most people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like. And that was it. I will never apologize,â&#x20AC;? she says, firmly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re talking about art. Nobody was harmed in this, really. I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really scribble that far outside the lines. Everything was labeled â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;fiction.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? At her mention of an apology, I have to ask: does she feel like people demanded one? â&#x20AC;&#x153;People like to give themselves a lot of credit for how vanguard they are. I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tell you how many people Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had tell me, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Warhol would have loved it!â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x201D; including people who were close with Warhol,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think it revealed more about other people and what they could accommodate, and what they put on the work, than it does about me. If you have a personal relationship with JT, then thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a conversation between you and me. I put my email [in the books], and I really did have a connection with the fans because I grew up in the punk scene, and I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t into hero worship. The problem was â&#x20AC;&#x201D; psychologically â&#x20AC;&#x201D; I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t able to do that. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like [adopts goofy voice], â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Gee, how do I burst forth onto the literary scene? I know! Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll create a little boy!â&#x20AC;&#x2122; No. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like that.â&#x20AC;? As we talk, Albert makes references to her own troubled youth: surviving abuse, living in a group home, being institutionalized. Amid the tumult of her teenage life, she would â&#x20AC;&#x153;call hotlines â&#x20AC;&#x201D; I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what I would talk about, but it was the only time I could feel. I would give myself over to another being, and it was always a boy. So when I hear people music

say, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m gonna do what you did,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like, good luck. For me it was created the way an oyster creates a pearl: out of irritation and suffering. It was an attempt to try to heal something. And it actually worked, and it did so for a lot of other people. The amazing thing is, now I can be available to people.â&#x20AC;? Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re delving more into her work (â&#x20AC;&#x153;I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do anything new â&#x20AC;&#x201D; writers have always been using combinations of pseudonyms and identities,â&#x20AC;? she points out) when the doorbell rings; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a Comcast technician here to see about Albertâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Internet connection. We move to her office, which features a wall collaged with photos and several filing cabinets full of archives â&#x20AC;&#x201D; material sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s letting Feuerzeig use in his documentary. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a room completely given over to the past. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also where Albert works on her new projects (besides her memoirs, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s writing screenplays â&#x20AC;&#x201D; building off her experiences working on Deadwood with David Milch), and stashes new mementos, including a program from a recent Brazilian rock opera entitled JT, A Punk Rock Fairy Tale. Before I leave, she gives me a copy of a New York Times article from 2010 entitled â&#x20AC;&#x153;Life, In the Way of Art;â&#x20AC;? its subjects include Joaquin Phoenix, still smarting from the backlash after his faux breakdown in Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m Still Here. The director of that film, Casey Affleck, cites a line from a Picasso quote that Albert emails to me in full the day after we speak: â&#x20AC;&#x153;We all know that art is not truth. Art is a lie that makes us realize truth, at least the truth that is given us to understand. The artist must know the manner whereby to convince others of the truthfulness of his lies.â&#x20AC;? Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just as frank over email as she is in person. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s OK with me if someone doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like my writing. But they shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t try to tell me how Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m obliged to present my work,â&#x20AC;? she writes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I talk about my personal background, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not attempting to somehow bestow legitimacy to what Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve written â&#x20AC;&#x201D; anyone should be able to do what I did. My life history doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter and isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t being offered as any kind of excuse.â&#x20AC;? I think back to something she said in her kitchen â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a simple, powerful summation of a story that will never not be complicated. â&#x20AC;&#x153;JT was my lifeboat. You loved him? Well, I loved him more.â&#x20AC;? 2 THE HEART IS DECEITFUL ABOVE ALL THINGS Fri/28, midnight, $10 Clay 2261 Fillmore, SF www.landmarktheatres.com

´8IJUF)PVTF%PXOÂľJTSFE XIJUF BOESFEVOEBOU By Cheryl eddy cheryl@sfbg.com FILM Ah, the mid-1990s: a time when two big-budget movies on the same subject were regularly released within months of each other (1997â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Volcano and Danteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Peak; 1998â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Armageddon and Deep Impact). When a director named Roland Emmerich ascended into the blockbuster pantheon with Independence Day (1996), a film thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best-remembered for transforming Will Smith into an action star â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and for that iconic shot of the White House exploding under alien death rays. The intervening years have seen Emmerich plunge everdeeper into various flavors of disaster: giant lizard (1998â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Godzilla); Mel Gibson (2000â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s The Patriot); global warming (2004â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s The Day After Tomorrow); the apocalypse (2009â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2012). White House Down â&#x20AC;&#x201D; which reignites that â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;90s copycat-rivalry thing by riding the fumes of Marchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Olympus Has Fallen â&#x20AC;&#x201D; finds its boogeyman in terrorism. Specifically, domestic terrorism, with another 1996 classic, Michael Bayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s The Rock, offering certain inspiration in the villain department. Ex-military goons with axes to grind storming a national landmark? Right this way, please. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a triumphant day for President James Sawyer (Jamie Foxx), who has just ordered all US troops removed from the Middle East. While ID4â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s President Bill Pullman was a Gulf War veteran, Sawyer is portrayed as more of an anti-violence, increasethe-peace type. But wait! Who are those shifty-eyed fellows skulking around the White House theater room, tinkering with the First Ladyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s prized surround-sound system? They donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t look ready to make nice. Into this mix must enter an Everyman. Beefy nugget Channing Tatum plays John Cale, wannabe Secret Service agent. Trouble is, his former college classmate (and fling? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s never certain, but every woman Cale interacts with seems to have slept with him), highmusic

stage

ranking Agent Finnerty (Maggie Gyllenhaal), doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think he has what it takes. According to the deep truths of his personnel file, Cale â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a Capitol policeman tasked with guarding the Speaker of the House (Richard Jenkins) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; â&#x20AC;&#x153;has a problem with authority,â&#x20AC;? despite his seemingly sincere desire to become an astronaut ... er, wait, that was Will Smithâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cocky pilot in ID4. At any rate, there is (as always) a family to impress; in Caleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s case, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a plucky daughter (Joey King), always on the lookout for new fodder for her YouTube channel. What better way to win over a kid who blurts out â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wikileaksâ&#x20AC;? with as much excitement as other 11year-olds say â&#x20AC;&#x153;One Directionâ&#x20AC;? than to take her on a tour of the White House? Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the setup. The remainder of the film encompasses Caleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sweaty, sardonic one-man-army maneuverings (in John McClaneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s undershirt, no less), to keep both Sawyer â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a POTUS so cool he pauses mid-ambush to change into Air Jordans â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and Liâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;l Miss Citizen Journalist safe. Meanwhile, rockets are launched; thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a high-speed limo chase across the White House lawn; we learn the truth about Marilyn and JFK; The Wireâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lance Reddick shows up to turn his McNulty-honed glare onto Gyllenhaal; some high-ranking government dudes reveal their sinister true colors; and thanks to evil genius Skip Tyler (Jimmi Simpson), â&#x20AC;&#x153;the greatest hack the world has ever seenâ&#x20AC;? is about to unleash World War III. Yep, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s right: 17 years after Independence Dayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jeff Goldblum broke into the alien mainframe, thereby saving the White Houseless planet, Emmerich has decided that hackers are actually bad guys. It goes with White House Downâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s warning that the enemy is no longer an external threat, but something lurking right under your nose. Better start working out, America â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and working on your one-liners. 2 WhITe hOUSe dOWN opens Fri/28 in Bay Area theaters.
