Spring into it Residents with brooms in hand are ready for the third annual citywide cleanup. By Erica J. Minutella Review Intern

O

nce the future comes around, many a movie director and animator has promised us flying cars, robotic servants with existential crises and even the occasional asteroid apocalypse. On a much smaller scale, these creative gurus also take it for granted that everything will be immaculately clean, from whitewashed spaceports to litter-free city sidewalks. But for some, like the Lower Moyamensing Civic Association, the future cannot come soon enough. From 9 a.m. to noon April 10, LoMo will participate in the third annual Philly Spring Cleanup, “Keep Up the Sweep Up,” See CLEANUP page 12

aria Chiavatti, owner/chef of Mamma Maria, 1637 E. Passyunk Ave., has participated in Flavors of the Avenue since its inaugural year in 2006. “It’s good for the avenue,” Chiavatti, whose restaurant has been on East Passyunk for 18 years, said. “It’s something extra. … See we have to work al-

ways to make people come because we’re not in the location of Center City.” East Passyunk Avenue Business Improvement District’s Main Street Manager Renee Gilinger hopes the event will attract about 500 to the avenue for Flavors, which will run noon to 5 p.m. April 24 along East Passyunk from Dickinson to Morris streets with the participating vendors offering tastes from their restaurants that may include pasta dishes, sushi, stromboli, pizza, hummus, salad, desserts

and more. Tickets are $25 for adults at the door or $20 in advance. Kids under age 12 are $10 while age 2 and under are free. Last year’s tickets were priced at $35, which would have included a $10 gift certificate to the avenue, but Gilinger opted to keep things affordable. “I wanted to make sure the event got back on its feet and got reestablished,” See FLAVORS page 11

Word on the Street

What are your thoughts on Donovan McNabb being traded to the Redskins? “I think he added a dimension to the Phildelphia team we didn’t have, but there comes a time when you have to move on. It’s best for him and the city ... I hold no grudges against him.” Frank Stinson, 13th and Bigler streets

“I’m not really that interested in football, but I’ve seen a lot of Facebook statuses that are freaked out about it ... I saw six in a row that said something about it.” Caroleen Jakmian, 13th and Ritner streets

“I thought it was time for him to be traded.” Ryan Culmer, Fifth and Hoffman streets

“I think it’s great. He’s washed up and we need some new talent here.” Geoff Hurowitz, 17th and Jackson streets

Where are our jobs? To the Editor: One place you can start is by asking your congressman or senator in Washington. If you get I don’t know for an answer, hang up, you just spoke to an idiot. The real answer to the question is our jobs are not in our country, our jobs are in someone else’s country. How did that happen? Big money paid to have them shipped from our country into the promised land and they are still there today. With the recent stock market crash, it brings back memories of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), a joint adventure of our two political parties who decided they were going to raise the economies of three nations — Canada, Mexico and of course our country. It didn’t work out. We lost thousands of jobs due to greed for the almighty dollar. The Fortune 500 companies looked upon the American workforce as too costly, as they had to pay a higher wage with health benefits and contribute to pension plans. So, they moved their facilities with the excuse that we can better serve the Mexican economy by moving to Mexico altogether with the blessing of our boys and girls in Washington who set it up in the first place. Did our boys and girls in Washington know beforehand that American men and women would be sacrificed at an alarming rate. Of course they did since we were the only country who set up a program that would retrain anyone who lost their job. Because of NAFTA, our boys and girls in Washington called themselves American. Makes you want to wonder what is a real American. One who just calls themselves one or one who really is one by how they display their actions. These Fortune 500 companies still call this country theirs by keeping their headquarters here. Maybe it’s because they still feed off the American people. When the stock market crashed we asked ourselves how many of these banks and stock market companies owned or have stock in these Fortune 500 companies? How much of our bailout money went to these companies whose headquarters are still here? Makes you think. If these companies were going under here, then they had to be going under in the other countries where their branches

are located? So we have to speculate how much of our bailout money went north, south, east or west of our boundaries? Will Washington tell us the truth? Of course not since it was a Washington operation to begin with and since no one in Washington will ever admit to a mistake made by a member of their political party. So where does that leave us? At the mercy of big money. Are we at fault? In some ways we are. We trusted those in Washington who told us to trust them. We did. That was our first mistake. We made people money by how we worked. They wanted and needed more, so they took our skills and know-how to people who work for pennies instead of dollars. This was our second mistake. Could the bailout be our third mistake? Maybe if we don’t get anything out of it, it could be. Patrick Dio Sr. South Philadelphia

Open for business To the Editor: Because I can use the money and because just about everyone else is doing it with apparent immunity and endless zeal, I will be opening a store in the business section of South Seventh Street and will have on sale, heroin, cocaine — bath, powdered and crack — meth and all kinds of prescription pills and liquids that suits ones fancies and needs. And for children who prefer sniffing glue, I am having special canisters being made up with the strongest fragrances possible where only one sniff will make your socks fall down. I expect to expand into North and West Philly in a couple of weeks with opportunities for job openings to help our staggering economy. I will not have corner dealers or hustlers working the streets and only senior citizens working in the store, that way there will be no violence or killings and I will have off-duty Camden, N.J. police officers working security. It will be like a direct-from-the-factory operation eliminating the middleman and passing the savings on to the consumer. Before the opening, I will be running newspaper, maga-

zines and television advertisements, and on opening day, there will be free samples to all comers. I realize my profits will be compromised and diminished by the necessity of paying various public officials and those in high office who otherwise would have me raided and closed down, but that’s the way it is sometimes. After all, there are tons of drugs going into and coming out of Mexico that find their way into America and huge drug cartels are murdering civilians, police and military personnel who are ill prepared it seems to fight them off. They can be stopped immediately. The terrorist war being waged against America and all its holdings is financed by the militant Jihad Muslims that are earned by the drugs they ship to Mexico. If you take away the profits, you cannot remain in business — plain and simple. It has to be someone in high public and private offices getting huge kickbacks who are standing in the way of legalization. Can you imagine no more drug gangs or street corner sales or the unbelievable murder rate caused by drugs? Gone. In the meantime, all those in need please come to my store for your addictive needs. We aim to please. Remember you will be helping senior citizens. Frank Cavallaro South Philadelphia

id you ever get the feeling that you’ve lived many different lives? I think I’ve had about five so far, each complete with its own tiny tragedy and death. My different lives are usually built around new places or people. And when I change cities or relationships, I have to bulldoze over everything I’ve built and start from scratch. My third life orbited around a guy named Ben. I was 22 at the time, still in college, and worked part-time at an independent bookstore. I had recently moved back to Pennsylvania after spending three years in Vermont and had lost contact with almost everybody I knew from my home state. Ben was a godsend and the gateway drug to the archetype of man that I now prefer.

He lived an hour away in South Jersey and every day one of us took up the task of rounding up the dogs and making the commute across the river to the other’s apartment. I created an adorable life when I moved back to Pa., filled to the brim with feminist theory seminars, Ikea futons, laid back, easy part-time work, dog walks and punk rock shows. I had literally no responsibilities other than keeping my GPA up and paying the cable bill. That life came to an end shortly after I graduated. Ben wanted kids and I wanted a career, so we parted ways. Life No. 4 started the day I moved to Philly and revolved heavily around poverty, fear, career changes, and another relationship. I laid Life No. 4 to rest two years later, after two apartments, four jobs, the worst breakup that I’ve ever been through to date and the adoption of another dog. Life No. 5 is the first life I’ve had that has been primarily about me. It’s about self-improvement, self-realization, selfacceptance ... SPR

Fatal shot

A West Oak Lane man survived 22 hours before succumbing to a bullet to the head last week. By Amanda L. Snyder R e v i e w S ta f f W r i t e r

R

onald Woodley, 20, of the 1000 block of Elston Street in West Oak Lane, was shot in the head at 2:53 p.m. March 31 after an argument at 22nd Street and Snyder Avenue, Officer Jill Russell of the Police Public Affair Unit said. He was rushed to the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, but survived the night. Woodley was pronounced dead at 12:47 p.m. the following afternoon. There were no arrests or suspects as of press time, Russell added. To report information, call Homicide Division at 215-686-3034.

Quadruple shooting An argument left one man dead and three others wounded early Saturday. Ranny Thon, 23, of the 2300 block of South Eighth Street received a gunshot wound to the chest on his block around 2:27 a.m., Officer Jill Russell of the Police Public Affairs Unit said. Thon was rushed to Thomas Jefferson Hospital where he was pronounced dead at 5:30 a.m. A 22-year-old male was struck in the right arm while a 24-year-old male was hit in the back and left thigh, Russell said. Both were taken to Jefferson in stable condition. A 17-year-old woman, who received a graze wound to her stomach, was treated at Methodist Hospital. The shooter has been identified, but no arrest was made by press time, Russell added. To report information, call Homicide Division at 215-686-3034.

Gang leader sentenced An alleged leader of the 27th and Dickinson streets gang was sentenced Monday for a 2007 shooting. Tyrik Upchurch, 22, of the 1300 block of South 27th Street, pled guilty to aggravated assault and possession of an instrument of crime and will serve four to 15 years in prison, according to court documents. Upchurch was convicted of shooting a 27-year-old, who was sitting in the front passenger-side of a car on the 2800 block of Wharton Street, five times in the abdo-

men and back on Oct. 14, ’07. His sentence will run concurrently to a five to 10-year sentence that began in ’08 from a guilty verdict for witness intimidation, according to court documents. That conviction stemmed from a shooting on March 25, ’07 where shots were fired Tyrik Upchuch at men in a black truck. However, the bullets struck a 9- and 12-yearold girl in their left arms on the 1400 block of Etting Street. Upchurch was arrested for both incidents Jan. 24, ’08 at 26th and Manton streets after being on the police department’s Most Wanted list for nine months. Upchurch’s younger brother Malik was murdered in ’04 while riding his bike near 28th and Wharton streets in what police believed was retaliation. Aleem Williams, now 23, of the 2800 block of Wharton Street, and Jermaine King, now 25, of the 3100 block of Tasker Street, are both serving life sentences for the 15-year-old’s murder.

Over-the-counter A man allegedly threatened to stab a pharmacist with a hypodermic needle if he did not hand over the prescription drug oxycodone. At about 8 p.m. Friday, Michael Thomas Clark, 21, of the 2900 block of South Sydenham Street, allegedly approached the drop-off window of the Rite Aid pharmacy, 1500 W. Moyamensing Ave., with pantyhose covering his face and told the pharmacist, “come over. Let me talk to you,” Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. As the employee approached the man, Clark is believed to have moved within arm’s length with a hypodermic needle in hand and said, “give me your oxies or I’ll stab you,” Tolliver said. The pharmacist and his assistant both ran toward the front of the store to call police. Clark is believed to have fled out the front door and ran south toward Sydenham Street. Police observed Clark, who matched the description of the man at Rite Aid, on the 1400 block of Pollock Street, Tolliver said. Clark was positively identified and


Police Report charged with robbery, attempted theft, aggravated assault, simple assault, recklessly endangering another person, possession of an instrument of crime, and terroristic threats.

Two-year-old killed Police are still investigating the death of a toddler that was struck by a SUV Friday in the Hawthorne section. Two-year-old Ikie Jones, of the 2000 block of Ellsworth Street, ran between two parked cars as he chased a ball on the 1300 block of Catharine Street at 10 p.m., Officer Jill Russell of the Police Public Affairs Unit said. Jones was then struck by a 2002 Isuzu Rodeo driving westbound on the street. The driver did not flee nor appear to be under the influence, Russell said. A family member transported the toddler to Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia where he was pronounced dead at 6:30 a.m.

Break-in

Two dollars

A woman was enjoying her Easter afternoon on her porch with her son and his friends when she saw two men firing a gun on her block. The 52-year-old saw the two males firing in her direction on the 2200 block of South Hemberger Street around 2 p.m., Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. Everyone fled inside the home and did not see where the duo ran. Police responded and located ballistics, but no injuries or property damage were discovered. The man with the gun was described as a 20-year-old black male, tall, thin, with an Afro and wearing a white T-shirt and black pants. The other suspect was described as a short, black man wearing a white T-shirt and blue jeans. To report information, call South Detectives at 215-686-3013.

Carnival robbery A teen was ambushed by a group of 15 peers as he left a local carnival last week. The group of 15 teen boys ranging in age from about 14 to 16 chased a 13-year-old as he left the carnival at Seventh and Johnston streets 10:15 p.m. April 1, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. The boy tripped and fell to the ground during the chase. The teens kicked and punched him while he was down before stealing his cell phone and fleeing the area in an unknown direction. The boy sustained minor cuts to his arms, legs, back, chest and face. He was treated and released from CHOP. To report information, call South Detectives at 215-686-3013.

A Passyunk Square woman allegedly struck a convenience store clerk with a fire extinguisher after he caught her attempting to steal $2 worth of merchandise Saturday. An employee at the Sunoco Mini Market, 2101 S. 17th St., is believed to have seen Amanda Fortune, 23, of the 1200 block of South Clarion Street, place two items from the counter near the cash register in her pants pocket around 6:15 a.m., Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said.

Two men broke into an apartment near Sixth and Shunk streets Sunday evening taking cash, a cell phone and a watch from the occupants. An 18-year-old resident and his 22year-old friend were inside at 6:45 p.m. when two males forced their way inside the dwelling on the 2600 block of South Marshall Street, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. The duo — one had a gun while the other had a baseball bat — demanded money and searched the men taking a Breitling watch and $250 from the younger and a cell phone and $50 from the elder. Neither man was injured and police recovered fingerprints from the apartment, Tolliver said. Both men were described as black, 6 foot, wearing all black clothing and ski masks. To report information, call South Detectives at 215-686-3013.

her to return the items that were valued at $2, but she refused. She allegedly became angry and took the fire extinguisher from the wall and threw it against the glass front door, Tolliver said. Fortune then allegedly retrieved the extinguisher and struck the clerk with it on his left shoulder, which resulted in bruising. Afterward, Fortune ran behind the counter where she allegedly tried to pry open the cash register with no success although the drawer was damaged in the process, Tolliver said. Police arrested Fortune in the store and recovered undisclosed narcotics on her. She was charged with robbery, theft, criminal mischief, aggravated assault, possession and related offences.

Changing her tune

Country singer Liv Devine — the niece of a former local pop singer — is performing in Mt. Laurel, N.J., this weekend with former American Idol contestant Bucky Covington.

A former Grays Ferry singer is passing her musical knowledge on to a family member who is following in her footsteps. Rita Stenavage Review Intern

S

ome might remember her simply as Dawn. The stage name belonged to former pop crooner Joni Capetola — now Casta — who cracked the Billboard top-50 during the 1960s and ’70s with hits such as “Can’t Get Him Off of My Mind” and “I’m Afraid They’re All Talking About Me.” The former resident of the 2000 block of South 27th Street has remained active in the music industry — these days on the management end. Her focus is a 20year-old country singer from Washington Township, N.J., who also happens to be her niece — Liv Devine. The duo have been working together for 17 years. At 8:30 p.m. Saturday, the proud aunt will be in the cheering section as Devine

performs with former “American Idol” finalist Bucky Covington at Prospector’s Steakhouse and Saloon in Mt. Laurel, N.J. “She has an amazing gift. All I’ve done is nurture it,” Casta, who also serves a vocal coach, said of Devine. “I just tell her over and over, to believe in herself and develop as an artist, which she has.” The up-and-coming talent also has penned some of her own lyrics to songs such as, “Not So Country Girl” and “Hero Song for the Brave.” Like her niece, the ’69 grad of St. Maria Goretti, 10th and Moore streets, was introduced to music at a very young age. Casta was signed to the Philadelphia-based label Swan Records at age 8, the same year it released the Beatles hit single, “She Loves You.” By age 15, Casta, now 58, landed on the Billboard charts with her song, “Can’t Get

Him Off of My Mind,” which cracked the top-50 and received a lot of local play. Casta noted she never intended to go any further than being a vocal coach, but that was prior to discovering her niece’s “immense natural talent and presence.” Casta was compelled to use her connections and past experiences to help Devine secure a record deal.

“I have a lot of talented students, but Liv was the total package; she had the ‘it factor’ and that is what sparked me to manage her,” Casta said. SPR Tickets for Liv Devine’s April 10 performance are $20 to $25 at the door. Call 856-235-1121. Comment at www.southphillyreview.com/news.

FLAVORS continued from page 1 Gilinger said. “That’s what I wanted to keep the price low.” Those purchasing tickets in advance will also be entered in a drawing to win a “Dine Around East Passyunk Avenue” prize pack of $10 to $20 gift certificates from most of the participating restaurants totaling to a $200 prize to be drawn April 23. There also will be sights and sounds of the avenue on hand with 12th-and-Whartonstreet resident Willie Williams performing with his band, Chad & Willie in addition to fashion shows at 1 and 3 p.m. featuring avenue trends from about 10 shops including Aci Nae, 1928 E. Passyunk Ave.; Metro Men’s Clothing, 1615 E. Passyunk Ave.; and Sweet Jane Vintage and Records, 1742

‘Obviously last year was a disappointment. Because we skipped a year, everyone is more excited about it this year.’ — Renee Gilinger, main street manager of the East Passyunk Avenue Business Improvement District rain or shine is great,” Gilinger said. “We all sleep easier.” Food and drink costs also were reduced, bringing the event that was estimated at $20,000 previously to $14,000 to $16,000, Gilinger said. Kensington-based Philadelphia Brewing Company and Cavit Collection will be providing the beer and wine, respectively. And local restaurants were willing to contribute even though they will not be reimbursed for the cost of food as they were in the past when city and state funding were at higher levels. “We said, ‘this year we can’t do that’ and everyone said ‘no problem,’” Gilinger said of eliminating the reimbursement. But the restaurants love the fact that they can introduce their food to a new audience, Gilinger added. “It’s great because it promotes the avenue,” Cathy Lee, co-owner of Le Virtu, 1927 E. Passyunk Ave., said. “It continues to foster the community and independent businesses.” Lee and her husband Francis Cratil participated in the inaugural Flavors prior to opening their restaurant in ’07, which turned out to be a great marketing tool in promoting the upcoming opening. “Our work site — everyone could see it in progress,” she said.

Many of the scheduled 20 vendors set up inside Urban Jungle, 1526 E. Passyunk Ave., a garden center and the newest addition to the avenue, with samples from their respective restaurants. The event served as a preview for the April 25 return of Flavors of the Avenue. S ta f f P h o t o b y G r e g B e z a n i s

The same holds true for current new kids on the block like Fond, 1617 E. Passyunk Ave., and Fuel, 1917 E. Passyunk Ave., who are both participating in their first Flavors. “The exposure to meet more people [and] to let people know about Fuel,” Sandy Cima, mother of owner Rocco Cima, said of what she is excited about. “It’s something a little different than all the other restaurants around today.” And with a variety of great restaurants along the strip, there is sure to be something to please everyone’s palate and a chance to sample everything the avenue has to offer. “If you’re someone who really likes to eat different food, it’s a very eclectic mix.” Gilinger said.

FOLLOWING AN ABRUPT cancellation in its fourth year, the district was determined to bring it back. “We had a lot of financial issues last year, but this event is really super important to everyone down here,” Gilinger said. Last year, there was an increase of $1,100 a month in the street cleaning budget due to Citizens’ Alliance for Better Neighborhood halting services forced the district to reevaluate its finances. The nonprofit typically took care of picking up trash and hanging signs for events. The void forced the district to cancel the event weeks before it was scheduled catching some busi-

nesses off guard. “Obviously last year was a disappointment,” Gilinger said. “Because we skipped a year, everyone is more excited about it this year.” With that extra enthusiasm, organizers found sponsors to pitch in and vendors to step up and make Flavors bigger than ever. With 20 local restaurants taking part — more than the estimated dozen that have participated in the past — the avenue is buzzing with excitement. Isabella Pizza, was expecting to be one of the vendors last year before the cancellation, Michal Martorano, co-owner of the establishment at 1824 E. Passyunk Ave. with ex-husband Steven Martorano, said. She plans to have stromboli on hand including a favorite — shrimp pesto. “I’m excited about people just coming to the avenue and checking us out,” she said. “I think our food is awesome. When people try us, they love it.” Obtaining the sponsors early helped to trim costs as rain proofing the festivities and picking up trash afterward aggregated the bulk of the previous expenses. Gold Metal Disposal is taking care of the trash pickup and Gilinger secured a discount for the 60- by 80-foot tent in case Mother Nature attempts to ruin the party. “To have that luxury to have the event

E. Passyunk Ave. A craft show from Crafty Balboa will return with more than 30 vendors set up around the fountain, organizer Amy Blasco said. “It’s amazing how many people just local to this area are in the show,” the resident of Jessup and Morris streets said. Blasco, who seeks out crafters from across the city, organized Crafty Balboa’s first show for last year’s doo-wop event on the avenue. With a variety of items including jewelry, clothing and art prints, crafters were flooded with positive responses from neighbors. “I hope we get that same reaction,” she said of the upcoming show

CLEANUP continued from page 1 in an effort to rid Philadelphia of its litter. Community volunteers will have the chance to take part in various activities, including tree tending, gardening, and litter cleanup. LoMo, which was founded in February of 2007, constitutes the area from Broad to Eighth streets, and Snyder to Oregon avenues. Local participants in the cleanup, as well as collaborating members of City Year, will meet at 9 a.m. in the parking lot of South Philadelphia High School, 2101 S. Broad St. All necessary supplies, such as biodegradable bags for trash and recyclables, work gloves and bottled water will be distributed on-site. Morning refreshments also will be on hand. In addition, recycling bins will be available for pick-up by any neighborhood residents who need them. Once registration and distribution is completed, site leaders will train volunteers on the proper methods to handle litter cleanup, as well as run through safety precautions. They will then take the group through the route. Other ways to participate, as outlined on the associationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Web site, involve organizing block cleanups and volunteering to clean and tend Marconi Plaza, Broad Street and Oregon Avenue.

Some incentives for contributors consist of community service credit for students, as well as 50 bonus Recyclebank points for the first 1,000 citywide volunteers to register for the cleanup who have previously enrolled in the Philadelphia Recycling Rewards program. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Apart from the immediate benefit of seeing a cleaner, greener neighborhood,â&#x20AC;? Massare said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;this event is part of the mayorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s much wider anti-litter campaign.â&#x20AC;? The message of the cleanup is to encourage residents to take an active and ongoing participation in the betterment of their communities, she added. The Philly Spring Cleanup boasts a rather impressive history, with last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s volunteers numbering more than 21,000. This year, cleanup sites include locations within South Philadelphia, Center City, Manayunk, as well as many other neighborhoods. Interested residents must register on the main Web site at www.phillyspringcleanup.com. Volunteers are encouraged to wear comfortable outdoor clothing along with closed-toe shoes. Furthermore, the City recommends that participants bring along a bagged lunch. While the cleanup will continue if the weather includes light showers, the rain date is April 17.

A former resident of Second and Wolf streets, Joziah Longo, second from left, returns to his hometown to perform with his band, Gandalf Murphy & the Slambovian Circus of Dreams, at the Theater of Living Arts April 16.

ink says we are country prison music and early British Invasion. Hillbilly-ish, as well,” Joziah Longo said while taking a break from rehearsals last week. The music veteran from Second and Wolf streets is gearing up for his debut at the Theater of Living Arts, 334 South St., with his band, Gandalf Murphy & the Slambovian Circus of Dreams, which includes cello, accordion and flute player Tink Lloyd, guitarist/mandolin player Sharkey McEwen, percussionist Tony Zuzulo and Chen and Orien Longo. The New York-based band is not new on the music scene, having played together since the 1990s, but the April 16 Philadelphia performance is something never-before-done by the self-proclaimed “industry-avoiders.” “When [Live Nation] asked if we would do the TLA venue, we thought we’d make it an event. Let’s just reveal the stuff we are working on in this album,” Longo said of the band’s intention to play the works-in-progress to be released on their new album, “The

Grand Slambovians,” dropping summer 2010. “You always want to make a show special, so that’s what we are doing.” Coming together as a band in the late-90s, the group skirted playing in cities, preferring to do things its own way by self-producing quirky performances just about anywhere. “We did it in very obscure places. We’ve done it all over the place, in very obscure old theaters, and managed to have it be a sellout gig,” Longo said of the Circus’ shows that also have been staged in the middle of Pennsylvania’s woods and occasionally featured aerial performances. “We did bring it in to the city and that went really well.” The Slambovians are back in the cities, as its lead singer/songwriter put it, and enjoying the new vibe. Though they travel to Philly at least once a year for the New Year’s Eve-Eve event — played at World Café Live the day before NYE as a nod to the Mummers, who are prepping for the New Year’s Day parade and could not attend a New Year’s Eve show — the TLA performance is out-ofthe-box even for them. “The last show I saw [at the TLA] was Arcade Fire,” Longo said

A Pennsport native returns to South Street to unveil never-before-heard works from an upcoming album.


Lifestyles continued from previous page of a performance he caught a couple years back. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s intimate enough, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a nice-size venue. That was a cool show. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Philly will kick your ass if they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like it. They are honest. They are discerning. So we thought, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just do the whole shebang.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Coming back to his old stomping grounds is a treat for the local boy who left the area at age 17 to pursue a career in music. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s funny for me in Philly â&#x20AC;&#x2122;cause people show up that I grew up with â&#x20AC;&#x201D; you remember these people. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kind of a gaffe to play for these people that you think you are playing for some kid that went to high school with you,â&#x20AC;? Longo said. The Slambovian Circus normally shies away from the press, as it does with most mainstream or typical approaches to a music career. However, the formula has proved successful and, true to form, next weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s performance was the result of going against the grain. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We usually play our hands close to our vests,â&#x20AC;? Longo said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;[Playing new material] seems like not the thing to do, so we are trying it out.â&#x20AC;? EVERY FRIDAY NIGHT at the Longoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Penns-

port home was a basement party hosted by Longoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s father and grandfather. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They played guitar and they sang. They would play clubs and bars on the weekends, both were factory workers from South Philly,â&#x20AC;? Longo said of his samenamed paternal line. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a party every Friday, all my aunts and uncles came over and it was tradition.â&#x20AC;? As he absorbed the rhythms and notes his family strummed, an innate musical sensibility was activated. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My dad taught me when I was really small, even when I was too small to play I would sit in the basement and strum. From the beginning they would try and teach me guitar,â&#x20AC;? Longo said, adding with a laugh, â&#x20AC;&#x153;They bought me a guitar and hung it over my crib.â&#x20AC;? After grade school at Our Lady of Mount Carmel, 2319 S. Third St., Longo became a student at Bishop Neumann High School, formerly at 26th and Moore streets, but the strict Catholic conventions didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mesh with his music bent. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was 16 when I moved out of my family home. I went to Pine and Quince streets. It was a musician area. Daryl Hall and John Oates were around there, and I played music with those guys,â&#x20AC;? Longo said. Eventually the aspiring musician settled

While playing coffeehouses to get an audience for his material, Longo was heard by a New York City theater and asked to do a tour of North America of Jacques Brel, which he accepted.

Longo said of The Ancestors, who had a similar sound to the Slambovian Circus. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of the industry was buzzing around us. The Orchestra asked us to do Carnegie Hall, but we were a band that wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sign with anybody. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Who gets to do Carnegie Hall with a 70-piece orchestra with no label?!â&#x20AC;? The Carnegie stint was one in a line of unexplainable opportunities that fell to The Ancestors, including being the first western band to play the decade-long sealed-off China in the early â&#x20AC;&#x2122;90s. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When all the big buzz was happening about The Ancestors we let that whole band disappear,â&#x20AC;? Longo said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We stopped playing

and all and went back to college and studied everything we needed to study and came up with how to put everything together.â&#x20AC;? What emerged from the academic hiatus is the Slambovian Circus, a self-producing, no label band that continues to churn out music they love instead of music they are told to make. With age â&#x20AC;&#x201D; which, by the way, they do not like to disclose â&#x20AC;&#x201D; has come assurance and security, though not temperance. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As you grow and you age you get a little more confident about what you are trying to do and say,â&#x20AC;? Longo, whose twin sons, Orien and Chen, often play with the band keyboards/percussion/vocals and bass/vocals, respectively, said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And our band is very ornery and independent, we keep the creativity flowing all these years.â&#x20AC;? Flowing it is, and what is to be unveiled next week at the TLA is anybodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s guess. What it is sure to be, however, is fresh, exciting and from the heart. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was a poor kid from South Philly â&#x20AC;Ś I appreciate it more now that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been away. I developed such a love for Philly, being away and coming back,â&#x20AC;? Longo said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And that accent that I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been able to shake.â&#x20AC;?

‘Clash’ of the remakes

Cardella

By Tom Cardella Columnist

Self-interest

S Perseus (Sam Worthington) seeks revenge after Hades murders his adoptive family in the remake of the classic epic “Clash of the Titans.”

By R. Kurt Osenlund Movie Reviewer

G

enerally speaking, Hollywood remakes are something of an epidemic. Just last week, I learned updates of “My Fair Lady,” “Alien” and (gasp!) “The Wizard of Oz” have all been confirmed. Some classics just shouldn’t be touched; 1981’s camp-tastic cult fave “Clash of the Titans,” however, was begging to be remade as its primitive, stopmotion effects are antiquated. Directed by French action maestro Louis Letterier, the new “Clash” certainly retrofits and expands upon the popcorn pageantry of the original, but it leaves much to be desired. Once again, we find ourselves following the defiantly heroic quest of Perseus (action-hero-of-the-moment Sam Worthington), the half-earthly, half-heavenly son of Zeus (a glistening Liam Neeson). Thirsty for vengeance after his adoptive family is murdered at the ashen hands of Hades (Ralph Fiennes), Perseus becomes the poster boy for the war the citizens of Argos have waged against the gods, who’ve turned tyrannical and denied the mortal’s basic necessities. To serve his and the Argosians’ causes, the dashing demigod will have to go toe-to-slithery-toe with giant scorpions, Medusa, and the Kraken, a sea beast the size of Mt. Olympus. The international cast, which also features Denmark’s Mads Mikkelsen and England’s Gemma Arterton, ably delivers the largely cheese-free material (there’s no forced comic relief or asinine one-liners), but the performances are nevertheless vacuous, and none more so than that of Worthington, who no longer has the majesty of “Avatar” to distract from his limited acting abilities. The intermittently impressive effects

fed the appetite of my inner child, but the production design is stagy, and the torturously built-up reveal of the Kraken is ultra-disappointing, with Letterier’s hyperactive camera never allowing us to see the monster in all its tentacular glory. And for the gods’ sakes, if you truly can’t resist this swords-and-sandals affair, don’t see it in 3-D. The glasses add nothing and darken the images by about 40 percent, casting a shadow over an already lackluster film.

Clash of the Titans PG-13 Two-and-a-half reels out of four Now playing in area theaters

Recommended Rental Precious: Based on the Novel ‘Push’ by Sapphire R Now Available A gritty, galvanizing and richly textured drama set in 1980s Harlem, West Philly native Lee Daniels’ Precious focuses on a girl who’s obese, poverty-stricken, illiterate, beaten at home, pregnant again by her father and HIV-positive. As the tight-lipped title character, breakout star Gabourey Sidibe gives a terrific, transformative debut performance, and as her venomous mother, comedienne Mo’Nique delivers the best performance of 2009.

elf-interest sometimes gets a bad name. An example is the guy on the sinking Titanic who dressed in female clothing so he could gain access to a lifeboat. A more recent example is the Church pedophile scandal. No matter what the Vatican PR machine cranks out, sexual abuse of children and its subsequent cover-up is not a conspiracy to smear the Church by the New York Times. Blaming the messenger is a timehonored method of deflecting criticism by all kinds. Unfortunately, now you can add the Vatican to that list. Written policy recently discovered that at least from 1962 on the Church placed its own self-interest ahead of the victims and their parents. There is no defense for not turning pedophile priests over to authorities. It is even more incredible many of these pedophiles were transferred to other parishes where they could prey (no pun intended) again on new victims. Both the child abuse and its cover-up by church officials is not just morally bankrupt, it’s criminal. There are echoes of Watergate in the current scandal. To paraphrase a question from the Watergate hearings, what did the Pope know and when did he know it? While it is true that the Church has doled out big fees to settle victims’ claims, it did so only after the cover-up was revealed. The Vatican’s response this past week has been to resort to legalese in defending itself; bishops are not employees of the Vatican; the Pope cannot be sued. Legalese will not stop the questions or the erosion of trust in the Vatican and its ability to handle such future problems. There is no doubt President Obama acted in his own self-interest this past week in his surprise decision to allow limited off-shore drilling. This follows the president’s equally surprising decision in favor of building new nuclear power plants. These decisions are an obvious attempt to both gain Republican support and provide cover for “Blue Dog” Democrats up for reelection. While trolling for Republican votes would seem the equivalent of panning for gold in the lake at Roosevelt Park, there is an indication Lindsey Graham of South Carolina is ready to cooperate on a climate change bill. The hunch here is that once Graham climbs aboard, he will provide cover for other Republican votes in both the House and Senate. Saying “no” does have its limits. Obama is forcing Republicans to either cooperate or get pushed farther to the ex-

treme right and risk becoming irrelevant on another major issue. As we all know, Republicans already made themselves irrelevant on health-care reform. True, the president’s decisions on limited drilling and nuclear power have riled his party’s liberal base. If you are going to convince the public you are serious about climate change legislation, you have to incorporate limited drilling and some additional use of nuclear power into a plan that includes conservation and the development of new energy sources. If the president is able to get a reasonable bill on climate change passed on the heels of the new health-care reform (and assuming the economy continues to improve), he and the Democrats will control the White House for the next six years. Getting climate change passed is admittedly in the president’s own self-interest, but it also is in the self-interest of America in the 21st century. Israel is our friend, but its self-interest does not always mirror that of the United States. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has determined that history is on his side by dictating new settlements in the West Bank. Mr. Netanyahu has to decide whether it is in his country’s longterm interest to continue these settlements (which he refuses to call settlements) if at the same time he destroys any chance of peace in the Middle East. Announcing these settlements when America is trying to prevent a fragile peace process from collapsing once again, calls into question his commitment to peace. Mr. Netanyahu is playing to those who don’t want peace in the Middle East. If he continues to embarrass our own attempts to broker a peace between Israel and the Palestinians, then we should walk away. The short-term political self-interest of Mr. Netanyahu does not serve Israel’s long-term interests. Another ally is playing us for a fool. Afghan President Hamid Karzai was elected by fraud, continues to be in power through corruption and treats the loss of American blood and treasure with total disrespect. Mr. Karzai wallows in his own self-interest, which is not our self-interest. Obama is in danger of making the same mistake as Lyndon Johnson did in Vietnam by supporting a corrupt dictator who has no chance to gain support for a viable Afghan state. The president’s recent visit to Afghanistan to persuade Karzai to rid his tenure of the stain of corruption was a failure. After he returned, Karzai was shooting his mouth off again accusing both the United Nations and the United States of trying to take over his country. Our self-interest is to cut our losses and get the hell out of there as fast we can. Not one more American should die to prop up Karzai. SPR Comment at www.southphillyreview.com/opinion/cardella.

dered steamed shrimp shumai ($5). Five bite-size morsels were created with a noodle dough so light and transparent you could read a newspaper through it. They were sublime and melted in our mouths. Service at Fat Salmon was pleasant and attentive. Clean plates arrived for each course and our water glasses were kept filled. By the time Alexander and I were midway through our meal, every seat was taken. I noticed everyone brought a bottle of wine. By the time you read this review, Fat Salmon may have its liquor license.

in another bucket and our meal began. I asked Alexander to order for us. This is a bon idée because he knows the difference between top-quality sushi and sashimi and fish that is just so-so. To me, miso soup smells and tastes like dirty sweat socks. But it is my responsibility to sample it. The soup had tiny cubes of tofu and some greens floating in the broth. Alexander liked it. For me, it still smelled and tasted like dirty sweat socks. The house salad was the typical iceberg leaves and grated carrot tossed in a ginger dressing. These items are complementary because Alexander ordered the sushi for two ($32). The platter consisted of tuna rolls and avocado rolls, which were rolled in fish roe. Eel, salmon, yellow tail, whitefish, shrimp, mackerel, white tuna, slightly spicy California roll all were represented. There are 27 special rolls from which to choose. Dragonfly ($10.50) consisted of six pieces of shrimp tempura, cucumber with a spicy sauce on top and eel and avocado with eel sauce on top. The tempura was hot and crisp and although I adore eel, I never tasted eel sauce. It was, well, tasty. Rock & roll ($8.50) took the tuna and salmon route. The platter contained six pieces of tuna, salmon and cucumber with a crunchy eel sauce on top. Alexander and I discussed the creative ways the fish were turned into rolls but we agreed on the middling quality of the fish. We wanted to sample a hot dish and or-

everal years ago, I was sure the sushi craze had jumped the shark. I was wrong. Japanese restaurants are reproducing as fast as Center City squirrels. Some are storefronts offering inexpensive rolls while others, such as Zama on Rittenhouse Square, are beautifully appointed spaces featuring immaculately fresh and innovative Asian cuisine. While strolling Walnut Street several weeks ago, I stumbled upon Fat Salmon, Center City’s newest Japanese restaurant. Since it is open for lunch, I walked in and asked for a take-home menu. I was itching to see if Fat Salmon could rival Zama as far as freshness of ingredients and creativity in the kitchen. Alexander is the sushi maven in my circle of friends. He is an attorney with the soul of a poet. Alexander regales me with stories that run the gamut from hilarious to philosophical. He brought a bottle of saké and I stopped by Garces Trading Company for a crisp, dry Riesling from Alsace. You might think the name Fat Salmon is funny, but nothing is finer than a thick, fatty center cut piece of wild salmon. Alexander thought the name implied a more casual restaurant. Fat Salmon is upscale casual. The dining space is a long, lean room with a white lacquer sushi bar, hanging lights, a wall depicting ocean waves and another covered by a colorful mural. Our server placed the saké in an ice bucket and opened the Riesling. She placed it

“F

daughter Tanya Bastianich Manuali for Lidia Cooks from the Heart of Italy’ ... for a tasty journey through the country’s different regions. out that Italy, like France and America, is a country of regional cooking. Dishes from Trentino differ greatly from those served in Umbria.

■ Country Salad ■ (Insalata Paesana from Trentino-Alto Adige) Ingredients:

Directions: Bring three quarts of water to a boil. Tear off any tough outer leaves of the cauliflower and cut out the core. Break

■ Baked Fish ■ with Savory Bread Crumbs (Tinche al Forno) from Umbria Ingredients:

2 pounds of whitefish fillets 3/4 teaspoon of kosher salt 6 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil Juice of 1 large lemon 1/2 cup of dry white wine 6 plump garlic cloves, crushed and peeled

Directions: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Lightly salt the fish on both sides using about one-quarter teaspoon of the salt. Combine three tablespoons of the olive oil with the lemon juice, white wine and another 1/4 teaspoon salt into a baking dish. Whisk together. Drop in the garlic and stir. Lay the fillets in the dish, turn and swish them in the dressing so both sides are thoroughly moistened. Arrange them skin side down in one layer. Toss the bread crumbs in a bowl with the lemon zest, parsley, oregano, hot pepper flakes and remaining one-quarter teaspoon of salt. Drizzle with remaining oil and toss the bread crumbs well until evenly moistened with oil. Spoon the seasoned bread crumbs on top of the fillets in a light even layer. Bake, uncovered, until the crumbs are crisp and golden about 15 to 20 minutes. Place the fish on a warm platter and serve family style. Serve with the lemon wedges. Serves six.

1 pound of cauliflower 3 to 4 red potatoes 1 large or 2 small crisp apples, peeled, cored and cut into quarter-inch dice 8 small radishes, trimmed and quartered 1 cup of red onion, in quarter-inch dice 8 ounces of imported Italian Asiago, cut in quarter-inch cubes 1/2 cup of toasted walnuts, coarsely chopped 1 teaspoon of kosher salt 1/4 cup of extra-virgin olive oil 3 tablespoons of cider vinegar 1 tablespoon of fresh Italian parsley, chopped

into small florets. Drop them into the boiling water and cook until tender, for about five minutes. Using a slotted spoon, remove cauliflower and drain well in a colander. Cool and place in a large bowl. Return the water to a boil. Drop in the potatoes and cook at a gentle boil just until a knife blade pierces the center easily. Drain and briefly cool the potatoes. Peel them while still warm and cut into quarterinch dice. Place in the bowl. Add the apples to the bowl. Add the radishes, onions, cubes of Asiago and toasted walnuts. Sprinkle with the salt and toss. Drizzle the oil over the salad and toss. Sprinkle on the parsley and toss again. Serves six.

1/2 cup of fine dry bread crumbs Zest of 1 large lemon 1 tablespoon of fresh Italian parsley, chopped 1/2 teaspoon of dried oregano 1/4 teaspoon of red hot pepper flakes, chopped fine Fresh lemon slices for serving

ood for me was a connecting link to my grandmother, to my childhood, to my past. And what I found out is that for everybody, food is a connector to their roots, to their past in different ways. It gives you security; it gives you a profile of who you are and where you come from.” Lidia Matticchio Bastianich said these wise words on Public Television a number of years ago. She is a fine home cook, author of six cookbooks and has been cooking on Public Television for many years. Her newest book is “Lidia Cooks from the Heart of Italy: A Feast of 175 Regional Recipes,” which she wrote with her daughter Tanya Bastianich Manuali who received a Ph.D in Italian Renaissance art history from Oxford University. Bastianich is the Marcella Hazan of the baby-boom generation. Ironically, both Italian-born cooks/authors were fortunate to have Judith Jones as their editor. Jones has been at Alfred A. Knopf for many years and was responsible for discovering Julia Child and publishing “Mastering the Art of French Cooking” in 1961. The recipes in the new book are accessible. There are no hard-to-find exotic ingredients. The full-color photographs taken by Christopher Hirsheimer made me run for my stockpot. The dust jacket photograph of Bastianich leaning over a colorful array of heirloom tomatoes will make you hungry. Go to the bookstore now and purchase a copy for a fine Mother’s or Father’s Day gift. I had difficulty selecting recipes because all of them tempted me. Bastianich points

Getting new wings By Bill Gelman Review Managing Editor

E

arlier this week, the Donovan McNabb era officially ended in Philadelphia. The trade with the rival Washington Redskins left many scratching their heads. Why would you trade a six-time Pro Bowl selection who led the Philadelphia Eagles to five NFC championship games and one Super Bowl appearance over 11 seasons? Why would you trade away the franchise quarterback who departs with several team marks including passing yards (32,873), completion percentage (59.0) and touchdown passes (216)? Because it was time. Yes, the Birds won 11 games last season and made the playoffs, but the most recent lasting memory is the embarrassing 34-14 Wild Card loss to the Dallas Cowboys. With the 2010 season being the final year of his contract, the organization could’ve easily decided to make one more run and everybody would’ve been happy. But this way — even though McNabb is staying in the NFC East — the team has assured itself of getting some value in the form of two draft picks. It also gives coach Andy

EOM BASEBALL/SOFTBALL

EOM, Front and Moore streets, is holding registrations for its baseball/softball program 7 p.m. Thursdays. The age di-

Reid a full season to see if Kevin Kolb has what it takes to be an NFL starting quarterback. Like McNabb, the fourth-year player from the University of Houston is entering the final year of his contract. The McNabb trade is just the latest in a series of off-season moves that has the team restocking their roster for the upcoming season. Gone are the injury prone Brian Westbrook and Shawn Andrews, who like McNabb, were once Pro Bowl selections. Cornerback Sheldon Brown, who had spent eight seasons in Philadelphia, also departed via trade. With a stockpile of picks in this month’s NFL Draft, the Eagles can take the next step in their restocking plan. It includes making the playoffs again next winter. But will they? Either way, the time for change is now. SPR

Trading Donovan McNabb to the Washington Redskins means No. 5 will be making at least one appearance in Philly next season. File Photo

Goodbye Donovan

delphia bids him a fond farewell and wishes him the best (as long as his best is worse than the Eagles).

April 5

T

he day has come! As I predicted last week, Donovan has been shown the door out of Philadelphia. Surprisingly, he is only taking a very short trip down I-95 to Washington. McNabb was traded earlier today to the NFC-East Redskins for a second-round pick in this month’s draft and a fourthround (potential to be third-round) draft pick in 2011. The fact that he was dealt within the same division as the Eagles means the deal must have been the best, by far, that was put on the table. At a press conference, Andy Reid named Kevin Kolb as the Eagles starting QB. Though I fear Donovan will be met with boos when the Eagles meet the Redskins twice a year, I think the majority of Phila-

Play ball!

T

he Bank opened its gates to another season, er, preseason, last night as the Phils had a two-night stretch at home to warm up the mound for Monday’s opener featuring new acquisition Roy Halladay. With Cole Hamels on the mound Friday, Jayson Werth popped in a solo shot (did you catch a glimpse of that mane? He’s really let himself go) that put the Phils on the track for the eventual 4-3 victory. Monday’s much-hyped debut of Halladay should be one to watch, as the Phils have a lot riding on that pitching ace ... SPR
