Checking in: The New Guard and The Writer’s Hotel

Former Mainer Shanna McNair started The New Guard, an independent, multi-genre literary review, in order to exalt the writer, no matter if that writer was well-established or just starting out (see “Mixing Old and New,” by Deirdre Fulton, February 21, 2012). Like its predecessors, the latest installment features well-known names and new-to-us talent, with offerings at times experimental and always well-executed. From bite-sized pieces up front to meaty work in the middle to in-depth interviews in the back, The New Guard is a must-read for anyone seeking to hone his or her craft. In this edited email interview, founding editor McNair—who will read her own work, along with TNG editor Scott Wolven, at Longfellow Books this Friday—tells the Phoenix about the 450-page Volume III, a new online component called BANG!, and The Writer’s Hotel, TNG’s educational operation out of New York City. The New Guard contests in fiction and nonfiction are open until July 14. It’s $15 to enter; learn more at newguardreview.com.

The New Guard is a labor of love. It’s a way for us to publish newcomers alongside established writers. We now have an online component called “BANG!” where writers can publish just a small bit of writing on that designated page. The amount of writing is rather minimal, so it’s meant to serve as a kind of calling card for the writer. This page is made up of both invited contributors and contributors who’ve submitted to BANG! online. We run one BANG! contributor for a month, and the writer gets to run three pieces total. That’s three pieces: 500 words (or less) of fiction or nonfiction or 20 lines of poetry (any combination is fine). This section has been very popular and we’re happy to run it, in hopes it will give extra support and recognition to writers on the net. BANG! submissions are accepted year-round.

politics + other mistakes

_BY zA cK Anch o rS

Between the dying and the dead Being politically deceased, you’d think Steve Woods would give us a break by putting on a dark suit, lying down in a coffin, and closing his eyes. Then we could get on with his eulogy (Dear friends, during his time on the campaign trail, there may have been a few people he didn’t annoy, but I’m sure that was just an oversight). Instead, Woods insists on acting as if he’s still got some life in him, proposing absurd public policies and levying wild charges against the state Democratic Party. You can be excused if you’ve so far failed to properly acknowledge Woods’s passing, since even by Maine standards, he’s a pretty obscure figure. But he did run for the US Senate in 2012 as an Independent, dropping out in the final days of the campaign and throwing his support to eventual winner Angus King. Given that Woods, a Yarmouth business owner and town councilor, was polling in the low single digits at the time, that had a minimal impact on the outcome, which saw King cruise to victory. As 2014 approached, Woods registered in the Democratic Party and announced he was running for governor. Hardly anybody paid attention, because, as you may have noticed, there are other, more viable options in that race. But Democratic officials were apparently concerned that Woods’s candidacy would prove a minor distraction from their focus on uniting the party behind presumptive nominee US Representative Mike Michaud. So they worked out a deal with Woods whereby he’d give up his long-shot bid for the Blaine House and run for the Legislature instead. Woods was willing to go along with that alteration in his ambitions, but was concerned that if he ran for the state Senate seat repre-

senting Portland’s northern suburbs, he’d face primary opposition backed by the party apparatus. So he negotiated a weird, confidential deal with party honchos that in return for his not mucking up their gubernatorial campaign, they’d remain neutral in the legislative contest. The value of such a document would have to be somewhere between extraordinarily low and completely nonexistent, but Woods insisted on it being drafted. If it helped him at all, it wasn’t apparent at the polls. In the June primary, Woods, in spite of spending over $50,000 of mostly his own money, got trounced by better than a 2-1 margin by former Falmouth Town Councilor Cathy Breen, who spent about $7,000. Woods blamed his lack of voter appeal and subsequent lopsided loss on a conspiracy by Democratic insiders. Other observers, perhaps employing a more levelheaded analysis, chalked it up to Woods’s abrasive personality and, possibly, his outlandish position on dealing with the declining economy in northern Maine. Nevertheless, Woods filed a complaint with the state Commission of Governmental Ethics and Election Practices (motto: Isn’t “Governmental Ethics” An Oxymoron?) alleging Dem leaders “organized and contrived” to defeat him and hand the nomination to Breen. As evidence of this, he pointed to an endorsement of his opponent by the Falmouth Democratic Town Committee. Due to egregious federal interference in our lives in the form of the First Amendment to the US Constitution, there’s apparently no state law preventing persons or groups from making endorsements, an oversight that falls under the heading of free speech or something. As a result, the ethics commission dismissed most of Woods’s conspiracy theory, but did

agree to investigate whether the Falmouth Dems should have registered as a political action committee before communicating with likely voters encouraging support for Breen. Even if the town committee is found in violation, it won’t help Woods’s political viability, which evaporated last year after he announced that about 20 percent of Maine municipalities “have collapsed economically to the point where many are not sustainable.” He suggested residents of these towns located in rural sections of the state be encouraged to pile their belongings in their pickups and move to more prosperous locations (such as Yarmouth or Falmouth?), where—assuming none of them is an illegal alien—they can collect general assistance. The last one to leave should turn off the lights. It’s that kind of outside-the-box thinking that gets someone labeled a genius. Or, more often, a jackass. Woods has now failed to appeal to independents and Democrats. That leaves him the option of running for something as a Republican espousing a strong bias against northern Maine or as an anti-backto-the-land Green Independent. Neither seems like a course that could revive his credibility. Better to lower himself into a hole and have somebody throw dirt in his face. Consider this the first shovelful.

Gas is too cheap last month i used this space to report on one of the most significant steps ever taken by the uS government to prevent climate change: new rules proposed in June by the environmental protection agency that would require power plants across the nation to reduce carbon emissions 30 percent by 2020. Since electricity production accounts for nearly a third of carbon emissions produced in the uS, that’s a big deal. on the other hand, the rules don’t do anything to address the second largest source of carbon emissions: transportation. as long as getting around in a car and moving goods by truck remain cheap and easy, a huge share of carbon emissions will come from tailpipes. people love to complain about the high costs of driving, but gas in the uS remains a steal compared to other countries. the low cost of gas is especially obvious when it’s compared to the price of other commodities like bottled water, or basic staples like milk. our government spends a fortune pursuing policies that allow cheap gas and easy driving. the best way to push people to drive less would be to make driving more expensive. that’s why lots of environmentalists and economists have been pushing for years for a serious spike in the federal gas tax, which hasn’t been raised since 1993. currently, the federal gas tax is 18.4 cents per gallon. it’s hard to think of a more straightforward, common sense solution to any problem than a hike to the gas tax. doing so would ensure that people who benefit most from roads and bridges are the same people who pay for them, since dollars collected from the gas tax flow into the federal highway trust Fund. a higher gas tax would also help reduce congestion, incentivize more fuel-efficient cars, make public transit more attractive, and place a cost on the pollution that inevitably occurs anytime you burn gas. unfortunately, it’s pretty much taken for granted in Washington that raising the gas tax, despite being sensible policy, is politically poisonous. americans like consuming cheap gas— while complaining about expensive gas—and few politicians have the guts to mess with that self-destructive privilege. But there’s another, more urgent reason to raise the gas tax that might make it easier for lawmakers to go out on a limb. the highway trust Fund is running out of money. officials predict the fund will become insolvent by the end of July unless congress scrapes together some cash. abound 80 percent of the cost of maine’s road and bridge projects rely on federal funding, so if that money dries up the impact would be felt close to home. this dire need to find money to pay for roads and bridges has inspired a bipartisan proposal from uS Senators Bob corker (r-tenn.) and chris murphy (d-conn.) to raise the federal gas tax by 6 cents per gallon each year for the next two years. after that two-year period, the gas tax would be linked with the rate of inflation. that spike is not nearly enough to bring the price in line with the actual environmental and social cost of gasoline, but it’s a step in the right direction. most supporters of the bill are talking it up as a solution for the shortage in funds for roads and bridges, but its potential environmental impact is far more important. the major flaw in the bill, besides the modest increase, is that the Senators added a bunch of unnecessary and unrelated tax breaks to the legislation to make it more palatable to congress. Still, even in its current flawed form, the bill would bring important progress. it’s worth noting, though, that the shrinking size of the highway trust Fund actually reflects a positive trend. americans are paying less in gas taxes because they are already driving less and using fuel more efficiently. the average american vehicle owner drives nearly 10 percent less than they did in 2004, marking a fairly incredible reversal of the trend in driving throughout the twentieth century. plus, americans are driving more fuelefficient vehicles these days, and driving them less than they used to. that’s due in part to the obama administration’s steps to gradually increase fuel-efficiency standards. even with the higher standards, though, the uS is far behind other nations when it comes to fuel-efficiency. more importantly, the average american still drives far more miles than residents of other countries—even in the most developed nations. and that’s what needs to change if we’re serious about reducing carbon emissions and developing a transportation system that’s not overwhelmingly fossil-fuel-dependent. ^

GIRLS (AND BOYS) ON FILM MIFF 2014 FEATURES GLENN CLOSE, SARA DRIVER, AND A BOY’S UNFORGETTABLE ADOLESCENCE _BY CH RIS T O PHE R G RA Y

The Maine International Film Festival, now in its 17th year in Waterville, remains one of the region’s more ambitious cultural institutions, less bound by a singular ambition than a desire to convey the breadth and depth of cinema’s past and present. (This, and a healthy dose of music and human-interest documentaries.) On that account, MIFF ’14 is an impressive achievement, offering area filmgoers its best program in years. With so much to survey, let’s make haste with the recommendations. (Particularly emphatic suggestions are marked in bold print.)

f

NEW NARRATIVE FILMS

Sampling twelve years in the life of a Texas family, and shot with a game crew of actors (and children becoming actors) over the same length of time, Richard Linklater’s boyhooD (MIFF’s opening night film) is the director’s latest conceptual feat, and perhaps his greatest achievement. By turns a pop-cultural time-capsule, a devastating chronicle of growing up with divorced parents, and a supremely relaxed and observant comedy, the film thrives on the cumulative power of its glancing profundities and its unique ability to depict the simple but unceasing passage of time. The debut feature by a protégé and editor of Terrence Malick, A.J. Edwards’s The Better Angels lives up to its pedigree. Narratologically inert but fluidly composed and sometimes brilliantly cut, the film imagines the early life and surroundings of Abraham Lincoln. Sundance crowd-pleaser Frank stars Michael Fassbender as a musician always clad in a fake, cartoon head. (Maggie Gyllenhaal and Scoot McNairy also headline a strong cast.) The prolific Frenchman Philippe Garrel (Regular Lovers) returns to the festival with his latest, Jealousy. Louis (Louis Garrel, Philippe’s son and collaborator) abandons his family to take up with a fellow actress, and Jealousy elegantly and elliptically tracks their relationship. love is sTrange is the latest from Ira Sachs (Keep the Lights On), and features John Lithgow and Albert Molina as lovers who run into professional trouble when they marry after a decades-long relationship. Other scheduling priorities should include The sTrange liTTle CaT and a masTer builDer. The former, beloved at festivals around the world, is set at a family dinner in Berlin, and does feature a titular character. The latter is the latest from the great Jonathan Demme (Stop Making Sense, Rachel Getting Married); Wallace Shawn stars in his adaptation of a Henrik Ibsen play.

NEW DOCUMENTARIES

An intriguing feature with some local flavor, Raymond St-Jean’s A Chair Fit for an Angel tracks the artistic and cultural legacy of the Shaker community. Along with footage from New Gloucester’s Sabbathday Lake Shaker Village, the film focuses on Shaker-inspired dance and music performances. Other music films with potential include: Brasslands, a collective-produced film that applies the renaissance of Balkan brass music to the livelihoods of three subjects in various parts of the world; Finding Fela, a biographical effort and surefire entertainer from the inexhaustible, Oscar-winning director Alex Gibney (Taxi to the Dark Side); and Alive Inside, the Audience Award winner at this year’s Sundance Film Festival.

A Short Film About Killing

Monsura is Waiting

Boyhood

In the annals of unlikely follow-ups,

sTray Dog deserves an entry: director

Debra Granik’s first film since Winter’s Bone follows a Vietnam veteran and Harley enthusiast as he treks to Maya Lin’s memorial and engages with a changing America. The life-after-Superstorm-Sunday doc This Time Next Year should thrive in the capable hands of Jeff Reichert and Farihah Zaiman (Remote Area Medical, Gerrymandering).

TRIBUTE AND CLASSICS PROGRAMS

The third actress to be honored with MIFF’s Mid-Life Achievement Award is Cruella de Vil herself, Glenn Close, who will make the voyage to Waterville on July 13 for a screening of Albert Nobbs. Other Close films featured at the festival include Dangerous liaisons and the forthcoming Low Down, co-starring John Hawkes and Elle Fanning. Also receiving kudos is one of the most important female voices in independent cinema, Sara Driver. Her collaborations with Jim Jarmusch are commemorated by a screening of the iconic sTranger Than ParaDise, which Driver produced, and a

showing of you are noT i, a 1981 adaptation of a Paul Bowles story that Driver directed and Jarmusch shot. Try to catch another Driver-helmed film, When Pigs Fly, which brings together Alfred Molina, Seymour Cassel, and Marianne Faithfull. “Masterpieces of Polish Cinema,” a collection of digital restorations curated by Martin Scorsese and highlighting works by Polish masters from the late 1950s through the early ‘80s, has been touring the country all year. Chief among the monuments appearing at MIFF are: Andrzej Wajda’s 1958 Ashes and Diamonds, set in the immediate aftermath of World War II among the Polish resistance; Wojciech Has’s epic 1965 nesting doll The sargossa manusCriPT; and Krzysztof Kieslowski’s immortal 1988 drama about the psychologies underlying crime and capital punishment, a shorT Film abouT Killing. The new documentary Eurocrime! will offer a fine primer for another interesting classics collection at MIFF, chronicling the evolution of the Italian police thriller in 1970s cinema. Political corruption, mob drama, and tweaked genre films dot the slate, which highlights a few

works by actor and MIFF guest Leonard Mann. His best showcase comes in 1969’s The ForgoTTen PisTolero, a spaghetti western founded on a Greek legend. Another great work tangentially related to the movement is Bernardo Bertolucci’s overwhelming The ConFormisT, which remains the existential political drama for a post-Antonioni age. Elsewhere, some one-off gems worth slotting a few hours for, each showing on 35mm: gun Crazy, Joseph H. Lewis’s perennially undervalued 1950 precursor to Bonnie and Clyde; Orson Welles’s extremely rare, unfinished 1938 pastiche of silent film tropes, Too muCh Johnson; and a wild, little-seen melodrama by Edward G. Ulmer, 1946’s Her Sister’s Secret.

LET IT SPOUT | Always get ex-

cited by these off-the-beaten-path comedy shows. A small squad of touring stand-up artists—JeFF BiloDeau, lauren o’Brien, JeSSe egan, and Dewey BratCher—cohort at the Rising Tide Brewery on Fox St. tonight for a set amongst the vats. You wouldn’t think so, but it’s a fun place to hang out; plus everyone seems to agree the beer is excellent, and tonight it floweth. 8 pm; $10 at 103 Fox St. STATE AID | If you’re not effing around tonight, surround yourself with the brightest lights the city has to offer. The annual “State of the State” concert showcases some of the most battletested, widely loved, and totallycapable-of-bringing-it local music acts to the massive stage of the State Theatre. See the fusion of backwoods- and arena-country group mallett BrotherS BanD, the electropop sensation other BoneS, faith-based rock group the wreCking, alt-rapper SpoSe, party-funk group moDel airplane, and R&B act kenya hall BanD. A real cornucopia of sound. 7 pm; $15-18 at 609 Congress St., 207.956.6000.

f

f Snoop Dogg, at Portland Expo, in Portland on July 10. thursday 10 KEEP IT RUFF | A Lion in winter, yet still a Dogg in summer, the hip hop legend Snoop Dogg returns to Portland for a massive concert in the Portland Expo, home of the Red Claws. The artist’s newfound love, light, and positivity brought on by his recent embrace of reggae shouldn’t be too hampered by this temporary return to his old sobriquet, so expectations that he’ll just dust off “Lodi Dodi” or something might be far-fetched. With Cam groveS and B.aull. Tickets are $51.50 via Waterfront Concerts; show’s at 7 pm at 239 Park Ave. 207.358.9327. PEOPLES’ WHARF | The Porthole, a longtime staple of real-Mainer dining situated on the slowly-gentrifying wharfs of Commercial Street, received a grade-A review this week (see Brian Duff on page 24), a reversal of its somewhat less-than-stellar grade doled out by the city’s ambitious health inspector two years ago. It’s under new ownership now, but retains a good ton of the flair (and seagulls) of old. This era of the restaurant’s history

includes a lot more live music. Tonight and every Thursday, the smooth rhythms of soul-funk dude lyle DivinSky should aid conversation, libation, and digestion. 6 pm and free at 20 Custom House Wharf. 207.773.4653. WHAT ELSE IS NEW? | Noiserock maestro J Mascis, reunited with drummer Murph and bassist Lou Barlow (who sulked off to start the excellent Sebadoh in the late ‘80s), bring the middle-aged version of rock gods DinoSaur Jr. back to Portland tonight. Now that the media-driven narrative about the band’s old feuds has been beat into the ground (including by yours truly – see “Rollins to interrogate Dinosaurs” by Nick Schroeder, June 15, 2011), and they’ve already completed the novelty tours of their seminal records, there’s nothing left for them to do except be a very, very good band. Expect nothing less. With Portland’s doom-rock outfit ogre at Asylum; 9 pm, $25 at 121 Center St. 207.772.8274. A SORT OF HOMECOMING | Meanwhile in Gorham, at the relatively new music and comedy club Spire 29, the local musician Dexter Jenks returns from new digs in South Carolina to play with his shaggy-haired, jam-

saturday 12 CROSS-REFERENCE | Ever wonder how classic literature

might differ if it were told by women? While some academics have carved out entire branches of literary pursuits to the subject (like the study of captivity narratives), one thespian has endeavored another path. The performer SuSanna hamnet re-tells the story of Shakespeare’s King Lear, a tragic tale of hubris wherein a fallen king spurns the love of his three daughters and many of his subjects. Hard to say why, exactly. Hamnet’s retelling might take us closer to this perversely classic than the Bard could. Her one-woman show, titled Nearly Lear, is staged at the Celebration Barn, 190 Stock Farm Rd in South Paris, at 8 pm tonight. $8-14, call 207.743.8452 for details. UP THERE | If you can make it up there, the arootSakooStik muSiC FeStival should pack quite the punch. The County imports the Appalachian vibes of several roots, Americana, rock, and country acts for an annual all-day concert. Taking the stage are drone-wizards herBCraFt, bluegrass-folk group ghoSt oF paul revere, the reverential songwriter JaCoB auguStine, and many more (see our listings). 11 am; $20 at Thomas Park in New Sweden. PICK UP THE PEN | Two literary events of note today: the first is a letter-writing revival at SpaCe gallery—no frills, just you and your neighbors gathering together to satisfy those undernourished epistolary

rock/reggae band South Street, the sort of group that play without their shirts on. With top monnow; 8 pm, $13 at 29 School St., 207.222.2068.

friday 11 STILL AFLOAT | Stalwart Portland musician Mark Belanger’s long-traveled road with cancer rumbles over another checkpoint tonight, as his band pigBoat, a burly, barreling alliance of metal and stoner-rock, release their album Distracted by Adventures in Healthcare, a document of fears and frustrations surely far more dire than its cheeky title. They play with the blackened sludgemetal group Sylvia and minDSet X, a prog trio from Manchester, NH. 9 pm,$5 at Geno’s Rock Club, 625 Congress St., 207.221.2382. DINNER PLANS | In the early eve, venture down toward the Bayside area for bargains both culinary and domestic, as the portlanD Flea-For-all hosts a “night market and food festival,” involving special vendors and many of the area’s food trucks. 6:30 pm at 125 Kennebec St.

His city and country accents actively abut and interlace, sometimes with conflict or hesitation. The weathered wood and dust-smeared windows might be farmhouse-salvaged, while smudgeless mirrors cut cold, severe edges like skyscraper windows. In his mostly white and wood palate, gold serves to both adorn with reverence and elbow-in a comment on class. For Rehearsal Space, Swanson pulls away from his betterknown, more overtly kitschy works— glittering antlers and bejeweled trophy heads—opting for a quieter duality of high and low, one that mediates the merits and tensions of both. Swanson openly pulls templates from his specific assemblage heroes, but strips them down to an austere set of elements, which, in turn, creates a space between influence and self-portraiture. The hanging extensions from the usual frame space echo Robert Rauschenberg’s rejection of the artwork square, but Swanson emblematizes and honors that refusal as an homage with the use of gold tassels and delicately dripping lengths of gold chain. The felt and fat of Joseph Beuys comes through—though more like memories than artifacts—in pelts of t-shirts: men’s cotton crew necks antiqued with stains, pinned taut like tanning hides, skins shed again and again.

movement in context Design and choreography ripen the drama in Ogunquit production Ballet is not for pussies—anyone who’s watched its muscled professionals leap and spin can attest to that. But it’s 1984, and the men in Billy’s English working class mining town are mired in the usual gender and class stereotypes. Still, eleven year-old Billy dances in Billy Elliot, the Musical, a show based on the 2000 film and on stage now in a regional premiere in Ogunquit. Is this musical adorable, rife with dancing children, and fundamentally uplifting? Yes, but it also features bloody union battles; a huge, red-eyed Margaret Thatcher effigy; and an impressive young lead who conveys the aggressive athletic prowess, frequent rage, and overall balls of Billy’s dancing: Billy is a ballet musical that is likewise not for pussies. It receives a virtuoso production here, recreated specifically for the venerable Ogunquit Playhouse, under the direction of BT McNicholl. While his town is consumed with a historic coal miner’s strike, motherless Billy (played alternately by Noah Parets, who performed the night I attended, and Sam Faulkner) wanders from his brutish boxing class into ballet taught by the jaded, twiggy redhead Mrs. Wilkinson (Anastasia Barzee). When he shows a talent for chaîné turns, Mrs. Wilkinson takes him under her wing, suggesting that he audition for London’s Royal Ballet School. Billy’s haggard, widower Dad Jackie (Armand Schultz) isn’t charmed by the idea, and to dance, Billy contends with much small-mindedness and hard love in his family and town. The ethos and heritage of this community receive special attention at the hands of scenic designer Campbell Baird, who had the unusual opportunity to visually redesign the production. This show opens with newsreel clips of miners and Thatcher projected onto a clothesline’s white sheets, which soon rise to reveal a simple cutout backdrop of row houses and mine towers. Just as the townspeople’s class identity is never far from their minds, this horizon is often visible, as Baird’s elegant modular set moves us between Billy’s modest home, the run-down community center, and the streets. McNicholl’s fine ensemble characterizes the town’s miners, cops, mothers, and wives with humor and agility. Billy’s grandmother (Dale Soules) gives tough, co-

f

medic, and haunting voice to a song about her abusive late husband’s dancing, and Billy’s sensitively portrayed father is at once stoic, loving, and volatile. Billy, in Parets’s expressive hands, shares his family’s nobullshit doggedness; what distinguishes him from them is less his pirouettes than his bewildered but fearless, nonjudgmental curiosity. Parets nails this, particularly in his bemused encounters with Barzee’s richly laconic Mrs. Wilkinson, and with his young cross-dressing friend Michael (Alec Shiman, with Mick Jagger charisma and unaffected ebullience for fringe and red tap shoes). And the dancing is often jaw-dropping. Interesting choreography (recreated and adapted by Adam Pelty) interweaves the physicality of clashing miners and cops with that of their dancing children (played by skilled young dancers who pretend entertainingly to dance badly). Even the minimalist bits delight, as when the men’s ensemble, playing a phalanx of cops, twitches, picks noses, and does jazz hands to the rhythms of syncopated percussion and slide whistles. And Parets is phenomenal, both vulnerable and fierce, literally shrieking in his defiant “Angry Dance.” He convincingly portrays Billy’s development from latent talent to focused dancer, and in a remarkable pas de deux with his older self (Stephen Hanna), he executes powerful leaps and turns, then hooks into a wire, rises, and spins so fast that I was astonished he can even walk straight afterward, let alone execute an accomplished final chain of turns to the edge of the stage. Finally, the writing has not just an irreverent wit (see the boozy shenanigans of “Merry Christmas, Maggie Thatcher”) but appealing ambiguities: the boy’s selfactualization doesn’t always seem the most urgent or sympathetic priority; its dramatic complications are rich, and its social implications are hard. Billy does deliver affirmation and a happy ending, but it earns it. ^

LfCAL MUSIC

One obvious reason for heavy music is catharsis, a healthy release for all the built-up bullshit modern life entails.

ADVENTURES IN LO-FI Once you have truly engaged with the American healthcare system and racked up tens of thousands of dollars in medical bills (or, if you’re particularly unlucky, a sum so vast it seems impossible), you become a changed person. Like someone who’s gone through torture or been a hostage. It’s that bad. Humiliating and humbling and frightening and instilling a real feeling of hopelessness you work to ensure your kids will never have to experience. It’s the sort of thing metal was made for. One obvious reason for heavy music is catharsis, a healthy release for all the built-up bullshit modern life entails. Like kickboxing class for suburban women, but with lots of black clothing and long hair. Pigboat’s always been good at laughing at life’s bullshit, but their new and long-awaited album, Distracted by Adventures in Healthcare, takes that magnifying glass and holds it up to the sun, searing our collective absurdities anew. Just as they were with Float in 2009, Pigboat are smart enough to not want to spend much time proving it to you. These are not big studio production values. The snare tends to be really bright, the guitars and vocals a little muddy, and the album as a whole fares better in big spaces than in headphones. It’s raw in the right ways, though, and never predictable or easy. The eight songs here are everything from two-and-a-half minutes of chargeahead “8:49 p.m.” to the sprawling “Manhattan,” which stretches out well past

f

seven minutes. They are and are not a stoner rock band, with tendencies toward jamming on a riff, but with a kind of punk curtness that shows up in everything from their I-don’t-give-a-fuck production values to the directness of their lyrics. I’ll leave it to the listener to gauge how much of that directness has inspiration in the healthcare experience. Vocalist and guitarist Mark Belanger thanks Dr. Helen Ryan and all at MCCM in the liner notes. Drummer Brian Chaloux thanks Dr. Elizabeth Bobzien, Dr. Devon Evans, Dr. Leslie Wu, and the R5 staff at Maine Medical Center. I’m not going to invade their privacy any further, or delve into their intentions, but, well, this is a long way off from “I Don’t Give a Fuck About Your Couch”: “You don’t care that I’m dying / We know that we’re both lying / To keep our jaws from seizing / To prove our own irrelevance.” It’s a sing-song piece that has you planning from the outset how it will fire up and get loud. The guitar is seriously wahed out, rippling sound waves, and there are doubled Belanger vocals: a low-down, dispirited voice in the bottom and a yelled delivery up top. “Storytime” is more Pixies, with Ed Porter’s bass doing melody work into the first verse, which is sung in dramatic fashion, a touch of Cobain entering as it continues in its disdain for apathetic humanity; they’ve heard all about how hard your life is, “But tell me one more time.”

PiGbOaT TReaT US aS eQUalS

APPETITE FOR RECONSTRUCTION Pigboat’s mark belanger and co. inspired by recovery Maybe the best track here comes in the bonus materials (there are also photos and videos), with Sean Libby guesting on vocals for a song he wrote for former band Balls Deep (he’s on guitar with Sylvia and does vocals on Johnny Cremains, too). “Paranoid Surrender” is cleaner in the vocals than most tracks, and features interesting changes of pace that Libby introduces and guides with his lyrics. Longtime scene vet Brant Dadaleares (Whitcomb, Twitchboy) does nice vocal work on the suggestive “Spaceship 13, You Are Forbidden to Dock,” too, but for sexual metaphor, “Manhattan” is the Pigboat gold standard. A sweet story that could have been lifted from Reddit, it leads with windmill guitar riffs and then moves into something like an ’80s synth bounce. Thanks to a few manhattans, our protagonist gets cuddly, but “I was too dim to notice then / That you had chosen not

to wear your shirt.” Then there is talk of flowers and smelling the petals and the whole thing has a bit of a Shrek quality to it, but in the end it’s a nakedly honest song about intimacy and how difficult it can be to attain—and how good it feels when you haven’t had it in a while. That’s the thing about coming to grips with your humanity. You learn to appreciate what’s important. Not the routine hassles of life (as detailed in excruciating fashion on “Aunt Slappings”), but true emotion and feeling honestly come by. I wouldn’t wish Pigboat any more adventures with the healthcare system, but I’d hope even those who aren’t normally heavy music fans would give this new album a spin or two. ^

Betty Cody, 1921-2014 the maine music community lost a hidden

fgiant last week with the death of Betty

cody, at 92. For those of us born in the ’70s and later, cody was most famous for mothering the Breau brothers, including denny, who you’ve seen playing country-style guitar if you’ve been out much at all in maine, and lenny, quite possibly the best guitarist to ever call maine home. unfortunately, lenny is maybe most famous for dying mysteriously in a los angeles swimming pool in 1984 at the age of 43, but go find the youtube videos. he was spectacular. and denny ain’t no slouch himself. look even deeper on the youtube machine, though, if you’re interested in the roots of maine’s storied country and bluegrass scenes. Betty cody was at its very beginnings. performing solo and with then-husband harold Breau (known as hal lone pine or the lone pine mountaineer; they divorced before he died in 1977), guitarist ray cou-

ture, and sometimes a very young lenny and other family and friends, cody was part of a stage show that reveled in the golden age of radio, fueled by Bangor’s WaBi, St. John’s cFBc, and other country stations up and down the east coast. cody and hal lone pine were married in 1940 and were an inspiration to the likes of maine country legends dick curless and mac mchale (mchale was born in 1932, the year hal made his radio debut), while cutting tracks with Westbrook’s al hawkes and touring with chet atkins and other members of the famous rca caravan, especially after they moved to Wheeling, West Virginia, home of the famous WWVa country station. the story goes that cody was

offered a big nashville contract after some initial hits on rca, but turned it down to stay in maine and raise her kids. perhaps ironically, lenny did eventually move to nashville as part of his long (and fruitless, finally) effort to find himself. it isn’t hard to hear why she drew attention to herself on tracks like “i really Want you to Know” and “pale moon,” where she shows off a brassy, full-bodied voice that’s effortless in the high tenor and can throw out a lilting yodel when called upon. it’s a voice that slices through the syrupy pedal steel and sits chillingly on top of an acoustic guitar strum. She was every bit the talent of Jeanne pruett or Kitty Wells or any of the many other pioneers

who brought the female voice to the big nashville stage, and it’s easy to see why col. tom parker, the guy who made elvis, would have offered her a deal. it may be that a gal raised in auburn, maine, just didn’t feel comfortable down there amongst the building country music industry machine. She wouldn’t be the first mainer to make that kind of choice. or maybe it’s true the colonel wasn’t interested in hal as a performer, and leaving her family for the bright lights was never really an option. regardless, cody essentially retired from the music biz after the family’s last attempt to stay afloat in music took them to Winnipeg, where lenny was inspired by the jazz scene and they hosted The Lonepine Caravan on canadian tV. She became a mill worker in lewiston, lived in a small apartment, and did a show or two here and there for fun and fond memories. thanks to the internet, though, her music lives on. there’s even a pandora station for hal lone pine & Betty cody. take a listen. ^

rock DESPERATE PLEASURES

ENDLESS JAGS sell the banquet, KEEp tHE MESS _BY NICK S CHRO E DE R The thing that makes desperation the irresistible, exotic beast that it is, is that it’s on a collision course. Ride with desperation long enough, and you’ll inevitably crash into wish-fulfillment (which only resets the process), maturation, or death. It’s a sad truth, but it’s sure fun while it lasts. The Endless Jags, the six-piece rock band from Portland, have been riding that beast for a few years now. They stormed out of the gate in 2012 with a sixsong EP of scorching guitars and weird sonic textures that balanced roughshod, hook-forward, Broken Social Scenederived pop with the energy and melody of the more evolved punk bands peaking before the collapse of the music industry. It was a style that felt like it came naturally, bolstered by the band’s secret-sauce element (they’re actually splendid fuckin’ musicians, most of whom spend more time playing in projects that please far more people than this one ever could), but anchored by the strident call-to-arms that make any rock band worth paying attention to. Yet while the EP was designed to gutpunch its listeners, a few songs could wither after repeated listening due to the Jags’ adherence to indie-rock orthodoxies and pop formulas—a confusing note for a supposedly nihilistic rock ‘n’ roll band to hit. Yet that’s precisely the faultline these guys are straddling: one foot in the terrain of the mainstream, the other ankle-deep in filth. Sell the Banquet, the band’s first proper full-length, basically digs them deeper in both directions. Its ten songs are smarter, more cohesive, and a bit more playful than its predecessor’s; more boastful of its propulsive rhythm section and the

f

excellent vocals of twin songwriters Oscar Romero and Tyler Jackson; and reaffirm every note of the battle-cry choruses that anchored their songs two years ago. Yet despite this apparent step toward maturation, the Jags never—and I don’t know how they pull this off—but they really never cave to the vapid, fatuous purr of mainstream appeal. It’s hard to say which side of that fence could claim opener “Boxcutter,” an upbeat party-starter which frames the good times as a spirit quest of chemically-aided peaks and valleys, but it’s a more solid, swaggering pop song than anything written two years ago. “Surfer” is even more satisfying, riding D.J. Moore’s organ melodies into a sequence of serious splashes in the chorus. And “Ready to Die” is the album’s best song, with Romero letting down the shroud of his typically obscured lyrics to hoist up the last flicker of a romance before it flames out. Jackson’s songs, peppered throughout the album and typically more ruminative than his foil’s, are fine chasers to Romero’s stiff, disaffected howls. “Fifty Grand” assembles all its scattered, impressionistic lyrics into a glorious and seriously Bob Pollard-y chorus. “Next Summer on the Ice” turns its mathy, fuzzed-out verses over to Justin Brady’s limber basslines and explodes into the beach-pop reverie Jackson summons in his Foam Castles project. “The Loop” tends to bloat the album’s second act a bit, trying to stretch a nifty-enough vocal melody into five-plus minutes of guitar parley. But the back end redeems, as the fierce blip of “Decameron” segues into the big payoffs of the noisy, six-minute closer “Hexer,” no clearer demonstration of a group of friends wishing the high would never end. What are the Endless Jags desperate for? Good question. For all their advanced musical knowledge, their heightened degree of familial trust, and their increasing willingness to trade in the languages of several styles beyond contemporary indie-rock, the Jags can often seem like a band without a coherent platform. Yet the album’s lyrics—obsessive, whimsical, and self-flagellating though they can be—are often surprisingly poetic, wistful, and commanding, evincing an ethos that doesn’t know exactly what it wants, but sure as shit understands what it’s running from. Entire nations have been founded on less. By comparison the Jags, a rock band somehow both brilliant and terrible, are only six dudes. A crash is inevitable—until the point when its not. ^

Katie and Jason Adoptive pAreNtS

When Katie and Jason met they knew they wanted a family together and as people do when they fall in love they had one of those conversations that later feels prescient. They talked about how if they could not have a child – they would adopt. After several years of trying to get pregnant they came to the realization that adoption really was going to be their best way of having the family they dreamed of. They called Stepping Stones. “It was really easy. I googled adoption in Maine and Stepping Stones came up and we decided to call and find out more about the adoption process.” “We felt incredibly well taken care of. Stepping Stones walked us through the A-Z of adoption and made sure we understood the risks and challenges – the adoption staff was very open about the realities of the adoption process – we always felt really well supported. We completed all our paper work and settled down to wait to see if and when we would become adoptive parents. Then after a few months we got the call that a baby was available and were asked if we could get to the hospital the very next day. We were overwhelmed, nervous and excited. We were thrilled. We had the opportunity to meet with our birth mother and even had the chance to stay over in the hospital with the baby in our room. Our adoption was finalized in June. We are just so thankful to have our baby and begin our family. When we are ready to add to our family – we will certainly work with Stepping Stones again. We had a really good experience – they helped us make our dream of having a family come true.”

porthole diners Forgive, Forget, Feast on _By Bria n d UF F Though they offer an appealing moral clarity, in practice zero tolerance policies have ruined any number of urban schools, fragile marriages, and card-marred soccer games. Zero tolerance almost ruined Portland a few years back, when restaurant inspector Michele Sturgeon took her job so seriously (failing 83 percent of the restaurants she inspected in 2011) that the city had to buy her off—paying her over $18,000 to resign and “never to disparage or speak ill of the city or any of its products.” The most disparaging thing she ever said was that there were rats in the kitchen of the Porthole. And while the city was hoping to purchase its restaurants a little more tolerance, everyone could agree that rats are not good. So it’s fortunate that the Porthole found new ownership, renovated the kitchen and the bones of the building, and hired a new chef. But it’s equally welcome that the new Porthole resembles the scrappy old one in many ways. If you are looking for a completely spiffed pierdining experience, ask the hostess at Boone’s if she can fit you in among their well-dressed crowd. If you want something more relaxed, slip on by and seat yourself at a picnic table on the Porthole’s huge deck, where the atmosphere is palpably relaxed. There sleepy dogs laze in

the shade under some tables, and romperclad women carry the conversation for their big, laconic, sunburned boyfriends in Red Sox shirts and sleeve tattoos. The pleasant server can’t tell you much about the entrees because she always orders the burger. It is pretty great out there. And the food is not bad either. The chef has done with the menu what the owner did with the place—elevating things without changing them fundamentally. So despite the server’s predilections, it’s worth veering from the burgers and fried fish into the more interesting dishes. The fish tacos, for example, break from common practice by opting for a crunchy blue-corn shell rather than soft tortillas. There are lots of tender, blackened pieces of some whitefish or another. On top sits a pile of crunchy slaw and juicy-sour pico de gallo. The pinkish aioli has a kick of sriracha (a company whose factory was nearly shut down by a zero tolerance policy on noxious odors in Irwindale, California). On their purple plate, the blue goopy tacos look both messy and appealing—sort of in the spirit of the Porthole itself. A scallop entrée, on the other hand, looks dignified, with an attractive sear on the big juicy mollusks. The scallops themselves were cooked just right—barely through the center. They sat in a buerre blanc sauce that was a touch gloppy, and

In this Exorcist knockoff, Eric Bana plays a lapsed Catholic policeman who rediscovers his faith while investigating a series of crimes whose perpetrators are all possessed by the devil. Director Scott Derrickson (Sinister) demonstrates a knack for atmosphere but little sense of pacing; some sequences are effectively spooky (particularly one set at the Bronx Zoo), though just as many feel uninspired and the longer dialogue scenes stop the movie dead in its tracks. There’s a nicely modulated performance from Edgar Ramirez, as a drug-addictturned-priest, that hints at the

The human drive toward ecological collapse often seems like a screaming train that can’t be halted, which gives this postapocalyptic thriller by Bong Joonho (The Host) a potency indivisible from its premise. Decades after an atmospheric experiment to counteract global warming has instead plunged the world into a new ice age, a little community of survivors rides a passenger train around and around the planet, the haves housed near the engine and the have-nots suffering at the back; a rebellion led by two malcontents (Chris Evans and Jamie Bell)

Tammy

and leading up through the cars introduces us to a succession of fantastic technology and eccentric characters (not the least of which is Tilda Swinton as an officious Thatcher-like governess). As with The Host, the political satire is teased out gradually as the story progresses and never intrudes on one’s enjoyment of the movie’s richly imagined

world. With John Hurt, Octavia Spencer, and Ed Harris.

Melissa McCarthy stars as a midwestern loudmouth who, fired from her job at a burger joint and furious that her husband is having an affair, skips town with her wily, pill-popping grandmother (Susan Sarandon). Their sights are set on Niagara Falls, but a booze-filled run-in with the police strands them in Louisville. Like a classic road comedy, this tends to drift from scene to scene rather than adhere to a strict plot; the movie revolves mostly around McCarthy, hilarious in her best performance to date. She cowrote the script with her husband, Ben Falcone, providing her character with a nuance absent from her other starring roles; she shows a more dramatic side, and not every joke is predicated on her weight. Falcone directed; with Kathy Bates and Mark Duplass.

Moonsigns

Puzzle solution at ooM thePhoenix.coM/recr

_by syMbo line Da i Where is the summer going? (And are we going out for ice cream again?) The sun in Cancer brings out the domestic urges (also protectiveness and defensiveness), and the moon going to its full phase helps projects and relationships that have been bubbling along to have that get-it-done surge so beloved by bipolar folks in the “manic” phase. Yes—the full moon can bring useful mania! Nothing wrong with that! (Can you tell I can’t wait to go on vacation?) This week’s moon encourages you all to take some chances, particularly when it comes to home décor or eccentric friends. For more, write sally@moonsigns.net.

Full moon in capricorn (moon void-of-course 12:19 am until 3:06 am in Sagittarius). the thunder moon brings enormous focus on capricorn, aries, cancer, and libra (to a lesser extent taurus, Gemini, pisces, Virgo, and aquarius) who should have communication breakthroughs or opportunities to talk with different people. “Slow and steady” is the theme for leo, Sagittarius, and Gemini. 17

Waxing moon in Sagittarius. the sign of the archer brings out everyone’s sense of humor and a yearning for earning. Fire sign moons are social, sometimes to a point of passionate interaction. and so love matters should go smoothly for libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, capricorn, aquarius, aries, and leo. impulsiveness could bring consequences for Virgo, pisces, Gemini, taurus, and cancer. 16

Waning moon in capricorn. oh, those home projects are just screaming right now! capricorn moons enhance our ability to think logically, do repetitive tasks, and work on structure and construction. they are also helpful for enduring tedium, so you may get into one of those circular conversations over the fence with a neighbor. Willing to do the work: capricorn, aquarius, pisces, Sagittarius, Scorpio, taurus, and Virgo. uncharacteristically subdued: libra, cancer, aries, leo, and Gemini. 18

Waning moon in aquarius (moon void-of-course 1:56 am until 3:06 am in capricorn). improvisational fun, particularly for aquarius, libra, Gemini, and pisces. aquarius moons favor friendship, so you may want to reach out to someone you haven’t seen for a while, especially capricorn, Sagittarius, cancer, and aries. taurus, Scorpio, leo, and Virgo: if you feel you’re being rushed into something, you are. 19

Waning moon in pisces. it’s an “in” kind of day—inconsistency in intent, particularly for Gemini, Virgo, libra, leo, and Sagittarius. But it’s also an excellent day for shoe-shopping (as is tomorrow), or visiting folks in prison or who are otherwise incarcerated. capricorn, aquarius, pisces, aries, taurus, cancer, and Scorpio all are highly tuned-in. 22

Waning moon in pisces. the sign of the fish is the end of the road astrologically (on a monthly basis, since the moon takes 29.5 days to move through those 12 signs). Focus on your feet and your journey, and allow time for nostalgia. happy to drift: aries, aquarius, libra, Gemini, pisces, cancer, Sagittarius. more touchy: Virgo, Scorpio, leo, capricorn. 21

27

28

Waning moon in aquarius, moon void-of-course 7:22 pm until 2:40 am tuesday. an evening Vc moon brings confusion and improvisational opportunities. But it’s another fine day for shore up friendship, or savor the kind of simpatico that makes for a good buddy. hopeful and creative: Sagittarius, capricorn, aquarius, pisces, aries, Gemini, and libra. missing signals—not intentionally: taurus, leo, Scorpio, Gemini, and cancer. 20

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.
