this Just in

HAPPY HOUR: Mon-Fri. 4-7pm Wed.

The weekend of May 31-June 1 sees Sanford open the venue doors for the town’s first international film festival. Thirty films are slated to play at four locations over the course of the weekend, with over 25 local restaurants and shops offering discounts for festival attendees and filmmakers alike. It’s an impressive feat considering the entire event was less than two months in the making. Why the short timeline? “The story starts with the Lewiston-Auburn Film Festival [LAFF] being shut down 10 days before opening night,” says James Harmon, a teacher at Sanford High School and spearheader of the Sanford Film Festival. Harmon teaches a class called Rebound for at-risk students at SHS; last year, a filmmaking class that was part of the program’s summer curriculum. The kids were enthusiastic to say the least. “We had an 85-page script in less than 10 days, cast it immediately and took 22 days to film it,” Harmon recalls. All students participated in the editing process, or “they had to create a DVD extra.” The film, #YOLO, which centers on a group of young misfits and their misadventures, took the better part of the fall semester to finish. Harmon downplays his contribution. “I just filled in the blanks. Some color correction here and there,” he says. “It’s the kids that did all the work.” Harmon did, however, submit the film to LAFF, where it was accepted and slated to screen during the first weekend in April. Imagine the collective disappointment when Joshua Shea, LAFF founder, was arrested on the charge of possessing child

pornography in late March. “[Shea] had the keys to the kingdom,” Harmon says. “All the contracts were under his watch.” There were attempts to salvage the festival, but none succeeded. With filmmakers scrambling to find new places to show their films, Harmon decided to bring his students’ film home to Sanford for a screening. He reached out on March 27 to both Mayor Tom Cote and Synergize Sanford, a group dedicated to local creative and entrepreneurial growth. From there, the

The Sanford film festival rose out of the ashes of LAFF, which was cancelled in March. Sanford Film Festival was born, with 15 (out of 50) films from LAFF joining in along with five films from outside the United States. “We more than doubled our count after putting up the website,” Harmon reports.  The support of the Sanford community has been equally overwhelming to filmmakers — both local and international. Andrew Bard, director of Dystopia, a post-apocalyptic sci-fi film, was especially surprised. “I spoke to the manager of Premiere Rentals to see about renting one — just one — television to show film trailers at the reception, and they gave me four!”

F Meanwhile, the emerGe Festival,

which also was born out of LAFF’s collapse, will run Friday, June 13 and Saturday, June 14 at six venues in the twin cities of Lewiston and Auburn. Starting with a (Baxter, duh) Beer and Horror night on Friday, the 13th, where they’ll screen Corey Norman’s The Hanover House (see “Slow-burning horror,” by Deirdre Fulton, May 9), and closing on Saturday evening with the highly anticipated reveal of Boo Dog Films’ feature comedy Richard3, directed by Michael Michlon, Emerge could end up eclipsing the besmirched predecessor it stepped in to replace.

F And in other local film news, the

BluestoCKinG Film series, which runs

July 18-19 at SPACE Gallery this year, recently became the first US film festival to earn Sweden’s A-Rating, meaning that it passes what’s known as the Bechdel Test (for a film to qualify, it must feature two or more female named characters, who talk to each other about something other than men). The Bluestocking festival only considers films that pass the test.

Best Maine Comedian: Krazy Jake We screwed up and left out the write-up for Best Maine Comedian in our big Best Of supplement last week. Whoops! Maine native Krazy JaKe Hodgdon is brash, blue-collar, and hilarious, known for regular stints on the Bob Marley Comedy Tour and and stand-up gigs around Maine and beyond. A quick look at his Facebook page or website seems to suggest he’s always working, either on the road or coming up with new material, plus he’s currently shooting a TV show and movie. He doesn’t shy away from much, but no matter how hard he pushes the envelope, his energy and enthusiasm endear him to audiences far and wide. It’s no surprise he’s considered one of Maine’s rising comedic talents! See for yourself at his shows at the Big Easy June 6-7.  Learn more at krazyjakecomedy.com And in related news, the location of the Common Ground Country Fair was misttated in the write-up for Best Fair/Festival. The annual agricultural celebration takes place in Unity, not Union.

The wind and chilly drizzle did nothing to dampen the spirit of anti-tar sands ralliers in Deering Oaks Park last Saturday, May 17. The event was held as part of a nationwide “Day of Action Against Dirty Fuels,” and, as speaker after speaker told the crowd of about 45 people, they don’t come much dirtier than tar sands. Dubbed a “carbon time bomb” by NASA scientist James Hansen, tar sands are a type of petroleum deposit containing a mix of sand, clay, water, and an extremely thick, sticky form of crude oil called bitumen, which resembles tar — hence the term “tar sands.” The carbon-intensive stuff is found in underground, and to extract and refine it involves “diluting it with a toxic stew of chemicals,” said Glen Brand, director of the Sierra Club’s Maine chapter, one of several groups that helped organize the rally. What makes it even more dangerous is what happens if it spills. Unlike conventional oil, it doesn’t evaporate. “The stuff sinks first, and then it sticks to the bottom of the body of water,” Brand said. Activists frequently cite a 2010 tar sands spill in Kalamazoo, Michigan, in which a pipeline was punctured and spilled one million gallons into the Kalamazoo River. “It was the biggest inland oil spill in the history of the country,” Brand said. “The river is still not cleaned up, and there are areas that will never recover.” That’s one of several reasons Mainers don’t want tar sands being transported through the state — a spill near Sebago Lake, which provides drinking water for Greater Portland, would be catastrophic. The rally’s purpose was to send a strong “No Tar Sands” message to both President Barack Obama and local officials. While a recent Washington Post-ABC poll showed that about two-thirds of the American public supports construction of the Keystone XL pipeline, which requires a presidential permit to move forward, Obama’s still hemming and hawing; the matter has been in a holding pattern for two years now, with the State Department announcing in April that it would delay its decision until after the Nebraska Supreme Court rules in a related case. “[Obama] said he would not approve it if it threatened climate control, and we want him to honor his promise and say no,” Brand said. Meanwhile, on the local level, the danger of pipeline reversal bringing tar sands oil into Maine and South Portland still lurks. Protect South Portland, another co-organizer of the rally, narrowly lost in its attempt last fall to block tar sands at the ballot box, but it remains vigilant, convinced that the Portland Pipe Line Company (which they point out is a sub-subsidiary of Exxon) is looking to reverse the flow in its decades-old pipeline to accommodate diluted bitumen from Western Canada. “New infrastructure — like two 70-foot smokestacks in Bug Light Park — was proposed that would turn the town into a conduit for the dirtiest oil on the planet,” said Emily Figdor of Environment Maine, recalling campaign talking points. Other speakers included Phil Coupe of Revision Energy, and Dylan Voorhees of NRCM, both advocating for renewable energy sources such as solar. “I know it’s hard to believe today, but Maine gets 33 percent more sunshine than Germany, the world’s solar leader,” Coupe joked. And Sarah Lachance of 350 Maine spoke to the intersection of tar sands and social justice issues as they concern the First Nations people of Alberta, ground zero for tar sands. “They’re becoming sick and their traditional hunting territory is being obliterated,” LaChance said. “Their kids are baffled.” Portland mayor Michael Brennan had the final word, citing the receipt of an Urban Land Institute grant as evidence of the region’s commitment to addressing global warming. “Portland and South Portland have been selected as two cities for an $800,000 research grant based on climate change and sea-level rise,” he said, ending on a confident note while praising the attendees’ steadfastness. “If we didn’t have faith, we wouldn’t be standing in the rain to say no to tar sands in our state.”

politics + other Mistakes

_BY ShAY StewArt-BouleY blackgirlinmaine@gmail.com

Good liquor gonna carry me down I thought for sure this would be the year I’d finally stop traveling to New Hampshire to buy almost all my booze. It appears I was wrong. In 2013, Gerry Reid, then the director of the Maine Bureau of Alcoholic Beverages and Lottery Operations (motto: If We Controlled Pot And Prostitution, We’d Have It All), announced that when the state’s new 10-year wholesale liquor contract took effect on July 1, 2014, the prices of 500 “high-traffic spirits” would be reduced to roughly what those products cost in the Granite State. No more need for long road trips south to replenish supplies. No more badgering friends and acquaintances heading north to stop and pick up a few bottles. And best of all, no more paying exorbitant prices at Maine agency stores when the liquor cabinet was empty and the demand for cocktails was immediate. Except none of that is going to happen. Reid retired in February, and with him seemingly went the idea of matching New Hampshire’s bargain prices. Instead, the bureau will be pursuing a policy of occasionally discounting a few high-volume items, while leaving the majority of its inventory ticketed well above that of the competition in the state next door. According to Tim Poulin, who until this week was the bureau’s acting director, come July and August, “we’ll see the most aggressive prices we’ve had in years.” Aggressive? Is this going to be one of those promotions where you better buy some hooch in Maine or you’ll get punched out? Poulin said the new strategy calls for sometimes matching or coming close to New Hampshire’s regular

f

prices on big sellers. But he admitted Maine wouldn’t even attempt to undersell the competition’s famous discounts. “We can’t compete with them on specials,” Poulin said. “We’d be losing too much money.” OK, let’s talk about losing money. A couple of years ago, New Hampshire did a study of credit card sales, which showed that 8 percent of its liquor revenue came from Maine. Poulin called that figure “a little low,” because it doesn’t take into account cash transactions. He estimated the real number was more like 10 percent or around $35 million a year. As anyone familiar with the bar and restaurant industry will tell you, that figure is also probably on the light side, since a sizeable portion of Maine’s watering holes ignores state law and buys a significant amount of its booze on the far side of the Piscataqua River. Our actual lost business is likely well above $50 million annually. Maine could alleviate a lot of that loss very simply. It could change its statutes to end state control of retail prices, and let agency stores (and competition among them) dictate how much liquor would sell for. But legislators refuse to even consider that idea, because it might result in higher prices in remote, rural areas and better deals in more populated regions and border towns. In other words, alcohol would be subject to the same market forces as groceries, hardware, heating fuels, and pharmaceuticals, all of which somehow manage to survive the perils of our economy without government price controls. Nevertheless, Poulin believes a strategy of educating locals and tourists about Maine’s sorta, kinda, sometimes lower prices (unless, like me, you prefer to drink something that’s not a top seller) will reduce the amount of lost business by 25 percent

the first year and as much as 50 percent over time. “We have to get consumers in Maine to understand we have a new pricing strategy,” he said. “It’s not going to be an easy task.” He’s right about that. It’s going to take a brilliant marketing campaign to convince imbibers that our neighboring state isn’t a better deal, so long as New Hampshire’s regular price for a 1.75 liter bottle of Captain Morgan’s spiced rum ($24.99) is lower than Maine’s current sale price ($26.99). When the Captain is on special across the bridge (as it is right now), it’s only $21.99. Maybe you’re a Scotch drinker. The Famous Grouse 1.75 liter would normally set you back $43.99 in Maine, but it’s aggressively priced in May at a mere $40.99. Of course, it’s regularly only $39.99 in New Hampshire, but on sale now for $29.99. And even if those pricing disparities are reduced once the new policies take effect in July, that won’t affect top-shelf liquor and more obscure brands, which will continue to sport mark-ups in Maine of $5, $10, and even $20 above the New Hampshire prices. It’s possible that new bureau director Gregory Mineo — a former marketing director for Absolut and Seagram brands, who started work this week — will eventually overcome the barely post-Prohibition mindset that permeates his agency and inject a little free-market capitalism into the system. But I’ve got my doubts. Until there’s a significant shift in attitude, I’ll continue to head south on I-95 to do my shopping. ^

Unless, of course, you’d be kind enough to pick me up a few things on your way north. If so, email me at aldiamon@herniahill.net, and I’ll send you my list.

race still matters f “race matters … this refusal to accept the stark reality that race matters is regrettable. the way to stop discrimination on the basis of race is to speak openly and candidly on the subject of race, and to apply the constitution with eyes open to the unfortunate effects of centuries of racial discrimination.” So said United States Supreme court Justice Sonia Sotomayor in her dissenting opinion in Schuette v. coalition to Defend affirmative action, in which the high court upheld a voter-approved change to the Michigan state constitution that prevents public colleges from using race as a factor in its admissions. race does indeed matter, no matter how much we pretend that it does not, because pretending never really changes things — only action and intentionality create change. the american way of pretense when it comes to racial bias and racism is but one of the reasons that it seems we are bombarded by race-based stories in the media in our 24/7 news cycle. eventually our secrets begin to spill out of the closet we’ve stuffed them into, and instead of cleaning up, we just push even harder against the door in a vain attempt to keep everything inside. this past month, la clippers owner donald Sterling was caught on tape telling his mixed-race girlfriend that he didn’t want her socializing with african americans, including basketball legend Magic Johnson. of course, Sterling vehemently denies being a racist — after all, he was dating a mixed-race woman whose background is part black. ah, the infamous “i can’t be racist; i have a friend of a different race” defense, which is often the best way to let people know you really are racist. closer to home here in Maine, in neighboring new hampshire, Wolfeboro police commissioner robert copeland admitted to calling the president of the United States a racial slur. copeland has insisted he won’t apologize for his offensive language and while many came out to protest in a town of 6,300 people, less than 10 percent were reported to be in attendance at a public meeting where residents called for copeland’s resignation. Far too many people dismiss such stories as being isolated incidents or the province of aging dinosaurs, but that isn’t true at all. earlier this year, the new York Times ran a piece on the rise of racial tensions on college campuses. despite being raised to be “color-blind,” many young adults grapple with racial bias because we learn from our families, and what we don’t say matters just as much as what we do say. in other words, what does it mean when we say that we are all equal but we live in spaces where the only people we see look just like us? Kids notice these things. if the only images we have of others is coming from a media that limits its scope of representation, what does that mean for our kids? For us? We cling to language and concepts such as ‘tolerance’ and ‘diversity’ but to be the ‘tolerated’ person is to know that you are not truly accepted. Most of us tolerate things like taxes and the occasional root canal, but do we like them? do we seek them out? of course not. that is how tolerance feels to those who are being tolerated. diversity as a concept doesn’t quite work either because too many times, diversity creates an illusion that does not get to the heart of structural inequity. instead, we see a few diverse faces and assume all is well. But when it comes to matters of race, often that is not the case. the copelands and the Sterlings are obviously extreme perpetrators of racism, and it’s easy for us to lay our full wrath upon them. But if we aren’t actively working to create a truly inclusive and accepting culture and if we don’t discard the belief that white culture is the baseline standard, perhaps we aren’t far removed from them as would like to believe. if our attempts to be inclusive amount to little more than masturbatory self-congratulation and pointless navel gazing, then we may do better to cut the crap and acknowledge our own inner racists. ^

where coffee reigns supreme cuppings help clarify java preferences _B y ka t e m c c a r ty Portland makes it onto many lists for its food and drink scene; some of the accolades are noteworthy (like Bon Appétit’s “foodiest small town” in 2009), while others are forgettable (namely the ones comparing our Portland to the other Portland). But the results of a Men’s Health study recently made us take notice: Portland is the number one coffee-loving city in the United States. To create these rankings, the study surveyed households in 100 major metropolitan areas, considering the number that own coffeemakers and buy coffee; the amount spent on coffee; the number of coffee shops per capita; and the number of individuals that drink five or more cups a day. Though that last number may be less important than you’d think — according to Maine author Murray Carpenter in his recent book Caffeinated, as a country, we’re drinking less coffee today than our grandparents were. Rather, the recent proliferation of coffee houses and roasters in Portland points to a growing appreciation for a quality cup of coffee rather than a high quantity of it. Recently, the coffee industry has entered what is described as its “third wave;” the first wave being the introduction of widespread consumption of coffee in our country in the 1950s and ’60s. First wave coffee companies sought to maximize profits, in part by creating demand for their product as part of a daily ritual. Second wave coffee is the movement most of us are familiar with and saw the rise of differing roast levels, publicized countries of origin, and espresso drinks. Coffee houses embracing a third wave philosophy now pay close attention to every step of coffee production, from growing

pour it over Brittany the barista at work at Bard coffee on middle street. to harvesting to roasting to brewing. Vien Dobui, Tandem Coffee’s wholesale accounts manager, explains that producers have only started growing coffee with an eye towards quality in the last 10 years. Much like wine, coffee grown in different parts of the world expresses different characteristics based on the climate and soil. Coffee roasters are now paying more attention to these flavor subtleties and roasting beans accordingly. The way coffee professionals evaluate the quality of coffee beans is a standardized smelling and tasting ritual called ‘cupping.’ Cuppings help coffee wholesalers determine if beans are worth buying and coffee roasters determine to what degree to roast coffee beans, among other things. The cupping process aims to control as many variables as possible, so one tastes only the flavors inherent in the coffee beans, rather than those imparted by the roasting process. Tandem Coffee offers cuppings to the public to help coffee aficionados (or wannabes) learn more about coffee flavors. I attended a cupping at Tandem Coffee in an attempt to expand my limited

knowledge of my own coffee preferences. While I always brew coffee at home and enjoy several cups throughout the morning, I don’t pay much attention to the pedigree. Beyond rejecting a very dark roast, I had no inkling whether I’d prefer a Kenyan coffee to a Columbian. The day I attended Tandem’s cupping, Vien Dobui prepared four samples for us to try. Two were roasted by Tandem’s owner Will Pratt: a Costa Rican and an Ethiopian coffee. Another Ethiopian varietal was sent to Tandem as a sample, and the fourth was a natural Ethiopian coffee from Seattle-based Slate Coffee Roasters. The cupping was attended by a small group of regulars, both young and old. I was graciously welcomed into the group and shown the routine. First, we sniffed the dry coffee grounds. Dobui then meticulously poured hot water over the grounds, allowing them to steep. We rotated around the table, bending to sniff the brewing coffee. After it was steeped, we selected silver-plated spoons to “break the crust,” or swipe our spoons through the floating coffee grounds to release the aromas trapped beneath. After the second round of smelling, Dobui removed the floating grounds and the tasting began. We were encouraged to violently slurp up our coffee (Dobui demonstrated with the most vehement of sips) to aspirate the coffee over all of our taste buds. Because I was concerned with choking on hot coffee in front of strangers, I stuck with a more modest slurp. For about 20 minutes, we circled the table, taking repeated sips of coffee. Different flavors become more pronounced as the coffee cools, so an extended tasting allows you to experience a range of aroma and taste. While sipping the four samples, my thoughts went like this: “Hmm, tastes like coffee... also tastes like coffee... yup, coffee again... Woah!” The fourth coffee tasted radically different due to the processing method. The Ethiopian coffee from Slate was naturally processed, meaning the fruits of the coffee plant, called “cherries” (inside of which you’ll find the “bean” or seed), are dried in the sun rather than mechanically pulped and then dried. The resulting coffee frequently is full of berry flavors; this one tasted like someone had infused it with blueberry syrup. After our tasting had concluded, we then shared our thoughts on the various flavors we detected. Tasting descriptors are notoriously wacky, but the ones I heard were relatively tame. Many found the Costa Rican roasted by Tandem to contain caramel flavors; Dobui explained caramelized sugar flavors are created by a darker roast. Other descriptors pertained to the acidity of the coffee (typically fruit flavors), the body (any flavor other than fruit), and the mouth-feel.

BooK Learning a display of costa rican coffee at coffee By Design. Determined to continue my coffee flavor education, I headed to the Speckled Ax on Congress Street and ordered two different kinds of coffee to taste side-by-side. When I explained my project to the barista, she exclaimed, “Oooh, you’re one of us!” which made me laugh. She selected a Kenyan and a Columbian coffee, described as tasting of, among other things, “cola” and “pineapple,” respectively. I detected neither, but did taste a noticeable difference between the two. The Kenyan coffee had a tomato-like acidity, while the Colombian expressed a pleasing sweetness as it cooled. The baristas continued to check in with me at my perch at the bar to discuss the coffees’ characteristics. Coffee By Design’s new space on Diamond Street in East Bayside offers plenty of room to sit and contemplate the flavors in your mug. The staff plans to offer regularly scheduled public cuppings this summer; in the meantime, their attentive staff is happy to recommend a coffee for your palate. The barista recommended a sweeter, nuttier-tasting Peruvian coffee, because I drink my coffee with cream. I tried it straight up first and appreciated the lighter roast, what CBD calls their “peak” roast. This light roasting style allows the flavors of the coffee to shine, rather than being dominated by a darker

French or Italian roast. This new location is a mecca for coffee geeks, with multiple high-tech brewing methods and a station for creating your own blend of coffee beans for home use. At Bard Coffee, store manager Brittany Feltovic prepared me two Kenyan coffees: one naturally processed and one washed. The natural coffee tasted very different than the one I’d experienced at Tandem Coffee, but I couldn’t quite articulate how. Feltovic coached me, saying she tasted “juicy lime,” rather than the more common berry flavors, but no matter how hard I thought of a key lime pie or a margarita, I didn’t quite get there. Unlike wine, coffee’s flavor differences are subtle. When drank side-by-side, coffees certainly taste different, but identifying those fruity, buttery, and smoky flavors requires an experienced palate. The cuppings at Tandem Coffee provide the perfect environment for training your taste buds, while Portland’s many coffee houses offer ever-expanding options for finding your favorite flavors. Look for a second location from Tandem Coffee this summer at 742 Congress Street in the West End. ^

f MiCroMasse, at Elements, in Biddeford on May 23. thursday 22 CUTS LIKE A KNIFE | Excit-

ing literary events abound this weekend, starting with the Slice Magazine Literary Bash at Longfellow Books tonight. Slice is a Brooklyn-based non-profit literary magazine that connects writers to the publishing world (see Deirdre Fulton’s interview with Slice creative director Celia Johnson in last week’s paper). Tonight’s event will showcase writers who appeared in recent issues, like Joshua Bodwell of the Maine Writers and Publishers Alliance, Douglas Milliken, whose To Sleep As Animals came out last week, and CJ Hauser, whose fiction has appeared in publications like Esquire and Tin House.

friday 23 poRTLAND pop | We love the

“Sour Bubblegum” descriptor employed by Dean ForD, who plays tonight at Empire. Ford is the closest thing Portland has to its very own Bruno Mars — but with a little more edge. He’s a little pop, a little rock, and definitely a hella good live show. Joining him on stage is BanD apoLLo who is known for coining the term “swag rock.” Sigh. I will leave that term open for interpretation. Also playing is one show nothing: a straightforward, energetic rock trio. $6. 9:30 pm. Empire, 575 Congress St, Portland. 207.747.5063 MACRo ELEMENTS | The jazz trio MiCroMasse has been called one of the coolest acts in Portland, and they take their brand of groove to Biddeford tonight.

est work from radical local playwright Carolyn Gage. Directed by Stephanie Ross, Stigmata tells the story of a 16th century Italian nun and her struggles to “keep her sexuality and her ambition alive in an environment of brutal religious repression.” For more on the show, check out Megan Grumbling’s piece on page 14. This evening’s performance will be followed by a talk-back. $5 suggested donation. 7 pm. Mayo Street Arts, 10 Mayo St., Portland.

sunday 25 IT’S BACK! | Depending on whether or not you have Monday off (for Memorial Day), you may want to throw down on Sunday. And by throw down, I mean party your little pants off. And where better to do this than a beautiful island in Casco Bay that’ll be pulsing with reggae music for the first time since last summer? That’s right, it’s Peaks Island/Jones Landing/reggae sunDay season! Catch a late-morning/early-afternoon ferry across the water and jam with local faves royaL haMMer for the day. 11-5 pm.

The group features a stellar trio of local musicians: organist Peter Dugas, guitarist Max Cantlin, and drummer Chris Sweet.

whAT’S Up wITh ThAT pEARL EARRINg | Many have wondered

(myself included) how the famous Dutch painter Johannes Vermeer painted works that were similar to photographs 150 years before the invention of photography. No joke, I’ve actually thought about this before. Luckily, Texasbased inventor Tim Jenison was proactive about answering the question that has plagued many art dorks around the world. The result was an epic research project that turned into the documentary called tim’S Vermeer, which tracks Jenison’s journey over eight years of research to find answers. Screening today at 2, 6, and 8 pm at Frontier Café in Fort Andross, Brunswick. 207.725.5222.

It makes sense, then, that the beauty of this music comes from its simplicity; Leibert and Luna Negra use only a flamenco guitar, bass, and percussion, giving their sound plenty of breathing space. $42.50. 8 pm. 92 Bourne Ln., Ogunquit. 207.646.4777.

Now Open Monday - Saturday 11 a.m. - 8 p.m. VOTED “BEST CHEAP EATS” 3 YEARS IN A ROW! DISARmINGLy DomeSTIC From l to r on wall: ‘division Painting #114,’ ‘Counterform Painting #47,’ and ‘division Painting #116,’ all by Frederick lynch (oil on canvas over panel); on floor: ‘sunshine,” by duane Paluska (painted wood). The sweet appeal of viewing art in the Corey Daniels Gallery comes from the sense of a space being in use, a neardomestic atmosphere. While the guts of the 19th century colonial house and barn have been modernized into stark, slick caverns of concrete and glass, the careful curation of the gallery’s personal collection of furniture and objects d’art breaks the pristine vacuum of the usual white-wall reverence. It is a calculated casual disarmament of the usually austere art experience for “Install 4,” a group show for Jeff Kellar, Frederick Lynch, and Duane Paluska. In collaboration with Paluska’s ICON Gallery in Brunswick, curator Miles Spadone orchestrates the work of these Maine artists into a visual panel discussion on shape, material, and craft. Thematically clean-lined and tensionfraught, the contemplation of shape readily beams out of each painting and sculptural element. The slow burn of the exhibition is how adroitly all three artists navigate the gray area between two- and three-dimensional art, and how that transposition from one to the other is mutually informing. The building, etching, and layering of material in each painting pulls it off the wall. Each sculpture draws a line or blocks a color to be either a stilllife to copy, or a prototype for study. In a chicken-and-egg fashion, it’s hard to decipher whether the positive/negative battle on the canvas inspired the joinery of wood and enamel, or vice versa, but that experimentation of spatial relationships oscillates back and forth from piece to piece.  “Install 4” is a deceptively large show, miraculously uncramped along the walls, tables, and onto the floor. The pieces are so naturally at home in the space, the show suggests a well-appointed living room more than museum hall. It’s an accessible aesthetic imperative to Spadone’s crafted intent. These living craftsmen benefit from a living environment, one that suggests the pursuit of new questions, rather than a canonized answer. Paluska’s grace is holding the paintbrush and saw in the same hand. His collages of acrylic swathes with canvas and linen so crisply abut as to appear to be

puzzle boxes neatly set together. His sculptures detail the playful divergences that happen in his formal fine woodworking shop — perfectly joined angles bent like broken frames, defiantly dysfunctional furniture pieces, and coolly lounging vessels. The tessellated geometries of Lynch’s tightly-packed patterns get biological in their repetition, multiplying fractals like an algal bloom or crystals under the microscope. Existing on huge canvases as numbered Division Paintings or in his free-standing Division Pieces of wood, glass, and aluminum, Lynch’s lines buzz from the confinement of their space on the plane. When these individual forms are extracted and honed in wood outlines, their orphaned isolation is palpable. The quiet weight of Kellar’s gorgeous high-contrast silhouette shapes is created from the complex application of resin, clay, and pigment to aluminum plates. Through layering, polishing, and incising of this composite, a depth builds up creating a supple, encaustic-like surface. The blacks are deeply black, the whites are luminescent, with a minutely blurred glow at each line edge. Set slightly away from the wall, the paper-think edge of aluminum floats the forms as if the view is actually a window looking out to distant brutalist buildings on the horizon. The effect is an unphotographable, in-person viewing experience. When he applies this same mixture to his small wood pieces, it has a similarly softening effect. These office-desk-sized objects appear shy in the scope of the other works, but escape preciousness in their sharp execution. From the common languages of the three artists’ dialogue, viewers may easily tease out the classic conversations regarding form, function, material — but the great subtext of “Install 4” is the inherent community that these works arise out of; a community that savors the debating of conformation, wrestling of elements, and laboring of craft. ^

survivor as perpetrator

gage’s new plaY acknowledges contradiction _BY megan gr u mB ling The Convent of the Mother of God, a 17th century religious order in Italy, seethes with seductions, power plays and manipulated “miracles.” At the center of this intrigue is Benedetta Carlini, an educated, masculine, and highly sexualized young women who escapes parental abuse, manipulates her way to a position of power in the convent, and then proceeds to abuse that power — both in order to keep it, and for her own pleasure. Her rise and fall make up the story of Stigmata, a new play by Carolyn Gage, which receives a staged reading this weekend at Mayo Street Arts. In the first scenes of Stigmata, we see Benedetta as a sexually precocious teenager at home, directing her reluctant friends in a re-enactment of the rape of Saint Agnes, in which Benedetta plays the Saint.

There is a bridge in “Smashing,” coming late in Ray LaMontagne’s new Supernova, where many of the wonderfully produced instruments fall away and there is nothing left to focus on but his raspy voice: “I look at you, and I don’t know who I am/ I look at you, I see my life is a sham … I fooled you once and I can do it again.” As with the best of LaMontagne’s work, his delivery is infused with passion and heartache and nostalgia, the kind of emotion that makes you feel like he can peek right into your very soul. Even as he’s straight-up telling you that he’s been fucking with you all along. Long-time fans should appreciate that he then, just as he’s at his most dour, fires right back into a rave-up, hardcharging: “I’ll be the one who stays/ You should be here with me now.” In one couplet, he references and turns on their head two of the darkest, and most delicately pretty, works from Till the Sun Turns Black, the album that is LaMontagne’s defining moment for many of his fans — those who were hooked by Trouble, but then absolutely crushed by the immensity of Black’s exploration of the human condition. “There’s nothing I want more/ Than to wake up on your floor,” he sang on “Can I Stay,” an expression of primal love and devotion. “Don’t lose your faith in me/ And I will try not to lose faith in you,” he sang of the implicit bargain we make with our loved ones. And so it’s perhaps not surprising that those same fans hear lyrics like “as a child we ran through fields of clover,” paired with sunshiney guitars and keyboards in Supernova’s opening “Lavender,” and think: Fuck, what a bunch of derivative flowerchild, ’60s bullshit. Or the title track. Wow. There are shades of Smash Mouth’s “Walking on the Sun” in that flavor of pop, centered around an acoustic guitar, but with an electric guitar climbing into a glockenspiel’s plink and bouncy keyboards to go with escapist lyrics: “Gonna get out of here, and never come back.” I mean: “I want you, to be my girl”? And that video, with all the psychedelic animation, like the video feed from LaMontagne’s 17-yearold acid trips? For real? Nor does any of this mention the fact that he’s jettisoned, for his new album and tour, the band that sounded so tight on his last tour and with whom he was so enamored that he actually released his last record, God Willin’ and the Creek Don’t

LoyAL to hIs Muse erstwhile mainer Ray lamontagne used to work in a shoe factory in lewiston (and we’ll never let him forget it). Rise, as Ray LaMontagne and the Pariah Dogs. (It, like, comes up different in iTunes and stuff.) But if you were expecting Ray to stay the course, you really haven’t been paying attention. He never worried about satisfying a fan base that fell in love with the Van Morrison-meets-Otis Redding bluesfolk of Trouble. He was never tied to producer Ethan Johns, who helped him craft that sound (or Jonathan Wyman and the Jeremiah Freed boys before that, for what it’s worth). He will tell you without any hesitation that he thinks much of his old work is terrible, and letting him know that you love songs like “One Lonesome Saddle” or “I Wish I Could Change Your Mind,” from before Trouble, is basically an insult. Above all, LaMontagne is loyal to his muse. If that means working with a whole new set of Nashville session musicians and the Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach as producer, then that’s what’s going to happen. And thus, his rootsy, Americana sound

— which won him a Grammy I can assure you he doesn’t give a shit about — has been replaced on Supernova with something approaching British invasion, Humble Pie and the Small Faces and the Kinks. Often, it doesn’t sound very much like a band at all, rather a slew of instruments expertly placed with studio wizardry. “Pick up a Gun” is almost industrial in the open, with a digital percussion and a swirling, Eastern keyboard. It’s as experimental as some of the recent Metal Feathers stuff, with a wash of cymbal and twanging distortion. But then everything clears up for LaMontagne’s vocals, dreamy and seemingly content, even as the lyrics are dour and mean-spirited: “Never want to see your face again … alone in the dark/ Can’t find me/ That’s okay, can’t feel a thing.” Really, those who want to proclaim this album as “happy Ray” clearly need to listen more closely. Sure, “Airwaves” is just about the

perfect song for doing a whole lot of nothing but sitting by the lake on a sunny day, with a calypso vibe and chiming ukulele. The finish is exquisite, with late electric guitar, just picking a couple of notes, a pair of lingering Spaghetti Western string lines competing in the channels, roiling floor toms, even a faint blast of Wurlitzer from time to time and some spacey keyboards. But LaMontagne drops in an almost pained panting in the postchorus and the couple comprising Rusty James and Betty Sue are consumed and made nothing by the Southern California they inhabit: “Makes you feel like you’re already part of the past.” “She’s the One” opens as full rock band, with a muted guitar descending, and LaMontagne is as aggressive as you’ve heard him. Not the bandleader from “Three More Days,” but more growling and animalistic. It’s just shy of being heavy, thanks to rounded and warm edges, but the “I just got to get to know that girl” is more stalker than lover. Even “Ojai,” which ought to appeal most to fans of his older material, with its “Stand By Me” qualities, isn’t anything like happy, despite the dreamy acoustic strum. It’s the story of a guy who just can’t win: “It’s not like he gave in/ He just never got that/ Second wind.” But damn if that bridge isn’t wondrous, with piano dancing through it and leading into a finish I can’t wait to see executed on stage. How will all these pieces come together? How will they capture the pure nostalgia of “Drive-In Movies,” with its dueling electric guitars of slightly different tone and punched-in chime for the chorus? As always, LaMontagne’s voice is the center, which could easily carry the song with nothing but an acoustic guitar, if circumstances called for it. When you strip away the producer, the instrumentalists, even LaMontagne’s voice, what’s always left is the songwriting; if you’re a fan of Ray’s and find yourself disappointed by the songwriting here, then I don’t know what to tell you. He continues to be an inventive storyteller, to play expertly with the verse-chorus-verse trope, and to always have another surprise up his sleeve. It’s just different. Which is the same as it’s always been. ^

the wheels on the bus go glug, glug, glug maine Brew Bus launches new tours and service Last month, the Maine Brewers’ Guild released an economic impact study showing that Maine’s breweries sold $92.5 million worth of beer last year, while employing close to 1500 workers. Our state is home to the fifth highest number of breweries per capita in the United States, with 4.7 breweries per 100,000 21-plus adults; as of today there are 53 breweries in Maine, and several more are slated to open later this year. The craft brew industry is expected to grow by 200 percent over the next four years, the guild reports. So it makes sense that the Maine Brew Bus, our favorite local designated driver founded by Zachary and Allison Poole, is expanding right along with the breweries it promotes on its all-inclusive beer tours. Over a beer at In’finiti last week (a starting point for several of the company’s tours), Maine Brew Bus “Vice Principal” (they like playing up the educational aspect) Don Littlefield told me about how they’ve added a bus to their fleet — purchased the day after Christmas, “Mabel” boasts a few more “creature comforts,” like air-conditioning — as well as several new itineraries. The “SudS and SpiritS” tour visits three spots in Portland that brew beer or distill spirits (and one that does both) — New England Distilling, where they make gin, rum,

f

and Maine’s first post-prohibition whiskey, Gunpowder Rye; Foundation Brewing, a new draft-only production brewery on Industrial Way; and In’finiti Fermentation and Distillation. The “York CountY BountY” tour takes advantage of the brewery boom in York County, where there are 16 breweries and counting. With stops at the new Banded Horn Brewing Co. in Biddeford; the Elements beer/coffee/books emporium, also in Biddeford (where visitors can taste the beers of Gneiss Brewing out of Limerick); and Funky Bow Brewery and Beer Company in Lyman, this ride offers a taste of what’s going on, beer-wise, south of Portland. (The Southern Crawl tour, the details of which are still being worked out, will also explore this area, with stops in Wells, York, Biddeford, and Saco.) The Brew Bus will also offer its first-ever Sunday tour this year: the “northern expoSure” loop, which will take visitors to Baxter Brewing in Lewiston, then on to the new Ebenezer’s Brewpub in Brunswick, a sister locale to the famous (and remote) Ebenezer’s Pub in Lovell. That tour wraps up with a stop at the Maine Beer Co. in Freeport, which is expanding its line-up in 2014. And that’s not all. Other tours are in the works for Fridays, Mondays, and even

The Brew Bus will also continue its “Progressive Beer Dinner Series;” the first of the season takes place next Wednesday, May 28 with Atlantic Brewing Co. out of Bar Harbor. For $70, participants will enjoy welcome beer and apps at the Little Tap House in Portland, followed by additional food courses at Tuscan Bistro in Freeport, Royal River Grillhouse in Yarmouth, and the Top of the East — all paired with Atlantic Brewing Co. beers and with transportation provided, of course.

Also keep your eyes peeled this summer for the bright green bus serving as a shuttle during happy hour (4-7 pm) on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. The Maine Brew Bus “Hop and Go Shuttle” will make a loop around Portland, stopping at 10 established locations to let riders on and off (the service will be free for riders and funded by charging the official stops a bi-monthly rate). The service starts next month. ^

As their dysfunctional kids bond, the two gradually fall for each other; the film is sweet in stretches, but screenwriters Ivan Menchell and Clare Sera deflate every sentimental gesture with a sophomoric quip. Unlike comic greats Groucho Marx and Jerry Lewis, who deflected sincerity with style and impudence, Sandler is simply cruel; his movies would be more likable if the

Written and directed by Steven Knight, this British release functions as sort of a mobile chamber drama: the action is confined entirely to the protagonist’s car, and the story unfolds through cell phone calls to his wife, who’s devastated; his boss, who’s enraged; and

his panicked exlover. The conceit is riveting at first because Knight forgoes any backstory or exposition, though as the foreman’s plight becomes clear, the tension quickly dissipates. Visually the film is a Dogme 95-esque exercise in minimalism and available resources; Knight uses passing streetlights and reflections in the car’s windows to dreamy, impressionistic effect, but this is dispelled by Hardy’s garrulous scene chewing. Featuring the voices of Ruth Wilson and Ben Daniels.

cineMaGic + clarks pond + aUbUrn + lewiston + saco cineMaGic + sMitty’s biddeford, sanford & windhaM You’d never guess this Disney sports drama was scripted by Thomas McCarthy, writerdirector of such meaty independent releases as The Visitor (2007) and Win Win (2011); it’s a completely by-the-numbers affair about a sports-marketing agent (Jon Hamm) who sets out

to recruit major-league baseball players from India but learns the sturdy lesson that sports should be fun instead of an exercise in moneygrubbing. The story is encrusted with formula: the cute young doctor (Lake Bell) who rents the hero’s backyard apartment and appears on cue to offer one-liners and life advice, the cranky old baseball scout (Alan Arkin) who comes along to India and rips on everyone in sight, the wide-eyed teenagers with good arms (Suraj Sharma, Madhur Mittal) who journey to America and get into trouble like naughty children. The movie was inspired by the real-life experiences of agent J.B. Bernstein, but the story stretches all the way back to Disney’s Jan-Michael Vincent comedy The World’s Greatest Athlete (1973). Craig Gillespie directed; with Aasif Mandvi and Bill Paxton.

_by syMbo line Da i The week of the waning moon is always good for lunar gazing. You can see the maria (the black basalt seas) in full relief, and a decent pair of binoculars reveals the jagged edges of the craters as the Earth’s shadow falls across the moon. This week, you’ll want to continue developing projects that began earlier in the month, but also look for shortcuts. I love this lunar phase because no matter what else is going on, that urge to shop prevails (thus tidily negating emotional or intellectual upheaval). So go through your closet, and try new combinations. Don’t you love a forecast this shallow? For more, email sally@moonsigns.net.

Waning moon in aries. the waning moon is about “ends” not “beginnings,” but it’s a great time to start a diet or stop a habit. the theme is “barbeque” and creativity, so those home-cooks will have fun devising unlikely marinades. those in tune with the moon: aries, pisces, Sagittarius, leo, aquarius, taurus, and Gemini. Slightly peeved: cancer, capricorn, Virgo, Scorpio, and libra. 29

Waning moon in taurus. consumerism wins! acquisitive and luxury-loving, the taurus moon gives permission for all kinds of indulgence, and having a kick-back Monday comes easiest to pisces, cancer, aquarius, Scorpio, Virgo, and libra. luxury-loving leo, aries, Sagittarius, Gemini, taurus, and capricorn could be derailed by unexpected social opportunities. 31

dark of the moon in taurus, moon void-of-course 5:10 am until 2:40 pm Wednesday. the “dark” interlude means accidents can happen, mainly due to rashness. Misunderstandings arise over trivia (“i don’t like how you said that”), and it can be an accident-prone time. however, “random encounters” could bring a change of direction worth exploring. do not make firm decisions and if you do, hold off on announcing them. easy to lose small stuff (where are the keys?). But do try a new path, or a new tactic. this goes for all 12 signs. 32

This horoscope traces the passage of the moon, not the sun. Simply read from day to day to watch the moon’s influence as it moves through the signs of the zodiac. | When the moon is in your sun sign, you are beginning a new 28-day emotional cycle, and you can expect increased insight and emotionality. When the moon moves into the sun sign opposite yours (see below), expect to have difficulties dealing with the opposite sex, family, or authority figures; social or romantic activities will not be at their best. | When the moon is in Aries, it opposes Libra, and vice versa. Other oppositions are Taurus/Scorpio, Gemini/Sagittarius, Cancer/Capricorn, Leo/Aquarius, and Virgo/Pisces. The moon stays in each sign approximately two and a half days. | As the moon moves between signs, it will sometimes become “void of course,” making no major angles to planets. Consider this a null time and try to avoid making or implementing decisions if you can. But it’s great for brainstorming. | For Symboline Dai’s sun-sign horoscopes and advice column, visit our Web site at thePhoenix.com. Symboline Dai can be reached at sally@moonsigns.net.

new moon in Gemini. Fresh starts beckon, particularly if you enjoy writing. a good day for a stylish haircut, or even buying a car. Gemini, libra, aquarius, and even cancer are all over the place, and should do the important stuff first (hint: this means p-a-u-s-e and figure out what the important stuff is). aries, leo, taurus, and Scorpio need to do something new — the old will not suit. Virgo, Sagittarius, capricorn, and pisces may “presume” something (to their detriment).
