Phillipe + Jorge’s Cool, Cool World dennis mcCarthy

billary rides again Waiting for the shoe to drop; missing mcCarthy Phillipe and Jorge have been

forced into writing about f Hillary “Dead Broke” Clinton due

to the recent media onslaught following publication of her new memoir, Hard Choices. So you can either decide to read on, or hit yourself in the middle of the forehead with a two-by-four. (Note: Home Depot has the best wood bargains.) Naturally, Hillary says she hasn’t yet determined if she will be a presidential candidate in 2016. Right. And Vlad the Bad Putin doesn’t like being photographed with his shirt off. When she does take this inevitable step, she will be banking on her long service as First Lady, US Senator, and Secretary of State for street cred. But the “first woman president” angle will be worked harder that a plow horse. In fact, P&J foresee her riding that “gal” horse all the way to the November 2016 election, a guaranteed 28 months of agony for the general public. Look for a few headlinegrabbing moves such as floating the idea of having a new presidential seal crested with Whistler’s mother, encircled by the line, “You’ve come a long way, baby,” in honor of Hill’s feminist background. The unannounced campaign has already locked in their theme song, Katy Perry’s “Roar,” to appeal to younger females who can help Clinton clear the ultimate hurdle. May P&J suggest adding the video of Miley Cyrus sticking out her tongue and twerking to “Bad Girls” on the “Clinton for President” website?

rememberING DeNNIs

Just prior to the Phoenix’s deadline last week, we learned of the untimely passing of the great singer, Dennis McCarthy. It was a shock to everyone in the Rhode Island music community and, at the time, many people still had not heard about it. This week, we contacted a number of his fellow musicians and asked them for their thoughts or an anecdote about Dennis.

KLEM KLIMEK, MEMBER OF RIZZZ, COLLABORATOR WITH NRBQ: Den-

nis really LOVED to sing. And he LOVED to talk about songs and singers and share his joyful appreciation of their stylings and nuances. He had very natural hand movements and his smiling presence looked good in front of good musicians. ‘Groovemaster’ was an apropos title. He had an arsenal of tunes to fit all those bags. On the stand, Dennis was more apt to call out the next song by its feel rather than

by its title. “Rhumba in G,” “Slow Blues in A,” etc. You’d find out what song you were playing once he started singing the lyrics. Of course, his approach could backfire if the cats misheard the key or couldn’t sync up. I was always amused when he would cut off an imminent train wreck a minute into the song. On to the next try. I learned a lot about fronting a pick-up band from him. It was nice to get to see his son Jefferson watching him closely from the audience at Nick A Nees this past year. It was an honor to sing background for him at “A Time For Thom” [last year’s remembrance of Thom Enright at the Met]. Some of my favorite Dennis songs: “Spanish Harlem,” “Pressure,” “Woodstock,” “Papa was a Rollin’ Stone,” “To Love Somebody,” and “People Get Ready.”

DUKE ROBILLARD, WORLD-FAMOUS BLUES AND JAZZ GUITAR MASTER,

JEN SORENSEN

SOLO ARTIST, FOUNDER OF ROOMFUL OF BLUES: Dennis McCarthy

showed soul and vision from the very beginning. He always had a unique outlook and view of the world and it really came through in his musical personality. He was a consummate performer and his passing is untimely. He will be missed for a very long time.

GARY CUMMINGS, DENNIS'S CO-LEAD SINGER IN THE DYNAMIC JOHNSONS, LEAD SINGER OF THE A CAPELLA GROUP, THE PINK TUXEDOS: I first

started hanging with Dennis in my teens. We were a very unlikely pair because we each liked different things, especially music. I was into soul and R&B and he was listening to fast-fingered cats like Alvin Lee. When bands like Santana and the Allman Brothers and such hit the scene, it was enough crossover that we each started appreciating different stuff. Then the blues came along and swept

my boy away. We often drove to Joe’s in Boston for Buddy Guy and Junior Wells and others. He was a dear friend and I loved him. We were there for each other’s joys and tragedies, victories and defeats. When we did the Dynamic Johnsons band, we never expected to be so popular. We had a ball writing most of our songs on stage and dancing like nut jobs. Happy trails, Mickey.

ROB NELSON, LEADER OF THE ROBCATS, PLAYER WITH LOADED DICE AND NUMEROUS OTHER R&B/BLUES BANDS: Dennis was unique in the

way that, no matter who was in the band on any particular night, he would make them come together as the Dennis McCarthy Band. He was a real bandleader, and could tell every instrument what part they should be playing, what the chord progression was, and especially what the rhythmic feel was supposed to be. If he

didn’t think it “felt” quite right, he’d stop the tune after a halfverse or whenever he felt it went off-course, so to speak. It could be a band of jazz guys, rock guys, or blues guys, it didn’t matter. They were going to play Dennis’s music that night! I respect that! He taught me to be a better allaround guitarist and I thank him for that. Performing and music, in general, was his passion. He also had an immense catalog of tunes and an encyclopedic knowledge of many genres of music. Dennis also liked to turn folks on to music. Personally, I think he probably gave me 20 or 30 playlists on CD to listen to since he came back to Rhode Island. They will be a sweet reminder of a friend and fellow musician.

KAREN CAPPELLI, VETERAN SINGER: My favorite Dennis McCarthy story . . . back in late 1970-something, my band was playing at the Yellow Kittens. A band I had been hearing about was playing at Captain Nicks. Fourth of July on Block Island. It’s packed. We took a break and I went over to hear the Groovemasters. Stepped inside and there was this incredible band; the singer with a voice that came from somewhere very deep inside. When they took their break I introduced myself and he smiled and we spoke for a while. After that I went to listen to them play every chance I got, to hear him put so much into a song. He will be missed.

MARK CUTLER, SONGWRITER, SINGER/GUITARIST WITH THE SCHEMERS, THE RAINDOGS, AND MEN OF GREAT COURAGE: I was lucky

enough to sit in with the Dennis McCarthy Band a few times. His approach to music was like his approach to life: easygoing and no rehearsal needed. He was a true showman and always had a smile on his face. He commanded the stage by being confident and able. I learned a lot by watching the man perform and by playing alongside him for what now is way too few times. When I was scheduled to play with him, I asked him to send me some songs so I could rehearse and learn them. He laughed and said, “Rehearse? Learn?! Hahahaha!!” He loved flying by the seat of his pants and it was a joyous ride. ^ Go to providence.thephoenix.com for more tributes to Dennis. And Nicka-Nee's reports that the musicians in McCarthy's Thursday night band will keep his memory alive by performing every other week “with a special guest each time for the foreseeable future.”

This Just In

‘We have seen that Colorado is now five months into their program [and] property crime and violent crime are down, tax revenues are up. The sky has not fallen in any way.’

the political Scene

‘Wait and see’ about pot legalization? Let’s not, says Regulate Rhode Island Will Rhode Island ever legalize pot? And, if so, when? If anyone knows the answers — aside from State House leaders who could bring a legalization bill to a floor vote this year, that is — it’s Jared Moffat, the 23-year-old director of Regulate Rhode Island, the grassroots organization on the front lines of the Ocean State’s legalization movement. Less than a year after its incorporation, Regulate RI has already made impressive strides. They’ve enlisted the support of folks like the founder of Brown University’s Center for Alcohol and Addiction Studies, David Lewis, and Providence mayoral candidate, Brett Smiley; amassed more than 1700 Facebook “Likes”; and held a press conference at the State House last month announcing tripartisan support of their cause from local Democratic, Republican, and Libertarian leaders. (Does anything get tripartisan support these days? Has anyone ever even heard of that?) We sat down recently with Moffat — who served as president of Brown University’s Students for Sensible Drug Policy (SSDP) chapter before graduating in 2013 — to talk about when Rhody lawmakers will finally take Peter Tosh’s advice to “legalize it,” and why they should hasten this decision. Our conversation has been edited and condensed.

f

WILL RHODE ISLAND EVER LEGALIZE MARIJUANA IN A SIMILAR MANNER TO COLORADO OR WASHINGTON? The answer is definitely “yes.”

At this point, the chances of it happening this year are pretty slim, although the door has not been closed. It’s still on the table, obviously, for the tax revenue reasons, and we think that’s still appealing to leadership and to members of the legislature. But there’s also people who want to see more data from Colorado and want to see how it plays out a little bit more, even though we have been seeing a lot of positive things come out of Colorado.

WHAT’S YOUR BEST PREDICTION FOR WHEN IT WILL PASS? I think 2015 looks really good.

One, because of the leadership change [when former Speaker Gordon Fox resigned and Rep-

WHAT DO YOU SAY TO THE MOM IN BARRINGTON WHO SAYS LEGALIZATION ISN’T GOOD FOR THE KIDS, THAT IT SENDS THE “WRONG MESSAGE”? I

WITH THE EXCEPTION OF DEMOCRAT TODD GIROUX, ALL CURRENT GUBERNATORIAL CANDIDATES HAVE TAKEN A “WAIT AND SEE” APPROACH WHEN ASKED ABOUT LEGALIZATION. DO YOU HAVE ANY PATIENCE FOR THAT ARGUMENT? Not really. Because I think we’ve “waited” and “seen” long enough that prohibition is the worst possible policy. We know that it doesn’t eliminate marijuana use. It doesn’t keep it out of the hands of kids. It only enriches people who sell it illegally. Personally, I’m interested in this because I think the War on Drugs has been one of the most terrible human rights crises of our modern times. I think it’s been responsible for international violence of epic proportions. It’s been responsible for the mass incarceration of communities of color, which has essentially become the new Jim Crow. And I think it’s responsible for unnecessary overdose deaths. Now, marijuana is not the entire War on Drugs. However, I think marijuana is a cornerstone of the War on Drugs and my hope — and I think a lot of people who fight this fight for social justice reasons see that — ending marijuana prohibition is a way to change and shift the paradigm and how we think about drug policy. So clearly we know that what we’re doing now doesn’t work at all. And we have seen that Colorado is now five months into their program [and] property crime and violent crime are down, tax revenues are up. The sky has not fallen in any way. Have there been hiccups that they’ve learned from as they go along? Of course. There’s no rollout of any program like this

RI LEGALIZATION AT A GLANCE House Bill 7506 — “AN ACT RELATING TO FOOD AND DRUGS” — was officially introduced on February 13, 2014 by a bipartisan coalition including representatives Edith Ajello (D-Providence), Brian Newberry (R–North Smithfield, Burrillville), Frank Ferri (D–Warwick), Scott Slater (D–Providence), and Christopher Blazejewski(D-Providence).

came out from Open Doors Rhode Island [earlier this year] that projects — this is a pretty wide range — between $21 and 82 million a year. [That comes] from the excise tax, the sales tax, and then other business taxes that would come from the businesses created.

resentative Nicholas Mattiello was elected to replace him] — that affected pretty much everyone’s issue. Second, because it’s an election year and some of our legislative allies are a little hesitant to go out on a limb at this point. 2015 is not an election year. Vermont is going to be seriously looking at a bill to do something similar in 2015. The governor [there] has already said that he’s potentially in favor of it. I think seeing another New England state make that move is going to help Rhode Island legislators warm up to the idea.

marijuana at a time. Adults over age 21 would also be allowed to cultivate one mature marijuana plant, provided it is grown out of public view.

• Establish a flat 10% sales tax for retailer-toconsumer sales of marijuana, and a $50-perounce excise tax on cultivator-to-retailer sales. • Require all marijuana products include labels and a safety insert with information on potency, when and where the marijuana was produced,

ENDING THE “WORST POSSIBLE POLICY” Moffat. that goes without [them]. One of the issues is regulating edibles. They’re just starting to roll out those regulations right now . . . requiring labeling of edible dosages. We advocate, on edibles, one dose per edible product. So if you’re going to make a cookie, that’s one dose in that one product. If you want to sell 10 cookies that each have a dose in them, that’s fine. But don’t sell a cookie with 10 doses in it. So that’s one thing that we’ve learned. And the industry is more than willing work with them on that. They’ve come out and said, “We agree. We need to do a better job of labeling and regulating these edibles.”

LET’S TALK ECONOMICS. WHAT KIND OF REVENUE INCREASE CAN RHODE ISLAND REASONABLY EXPECT IF MARIJUANA IS LEGALIZED? The best estimate we have right now is the report that

methods of administering marijuana, and marijuana’s potential dangers.

• Cap the number of licensed marijuana retailers across the state at 10, with marijuana only legally sold to consumers at such retailers. • Create a system by which both retailers and cultivators are licensed and closely regulated by the Department of Business Regulation. • Ban smoking marijuana in public and operating a motor vehicle while impaired by marijuana.

agree that marijuana should be kept away from young people. But to defend the policy that we have now as a way to accomplish that is totally bizarre. [W]hat we have now is daily marijuana use among kids has more than tripled since the early ’90s, under prohibition. At the same time, just last year, we saw historic lows for tobacco and alcohol use among teenagers. If you read what people have written about why we’ve achieved such success, especially with tobacco, they say it’s because we have control. We have control over prices. We have control over how it’s marketed. And we have control over . . . where it’s sold. That’s what we lack with marijuana. It’s sold in our schools. It’s sold without any age restrictions at all; no one has any scruples about selling marijuana to a 16-year-old at this point. If you put it in a licensed business, and that business could lose their license if they sell it to someone who’s underage, that’s a much better incentive than what we have now. A lot of people think I’m saying that we’re going to eliminate the problem with regulation. That’s not what I’m saying. But I am saying that it’s very easy for kids to get it right now and at least if we take it out of the illegal market, we could have more regulations and sanctions on people who sell to minors.

DO YOU SMOKE MARIJUANA? I use it occasionally.

I prefer marijuana to alcohol in a lot of situations. Some people unwind after a long day with a glass of wine; sometimes, for me, that’s some marijuana. And I think that’s why a lot of people use it. It’s also something [where] I’m sensitive to inappropriate use. I’ve seen some of my friends go too far with marijuana use. And I think that’s really important for advocates in our movement to recognize, that we need to be distinguishing between moderate, responsible marijuana use and problematic use. Problematic use is when marijuana is getting in the way of your other life goals. If you’re not getting up and going to your job, or if you can’t get out of bed without getting high, or if you can’t take care of basic life things, can’t keep your house in order, then that’s a problem. I think if you can use marijuana without it getting in the way of your other life goals and aspirations, then I don’t think that’s a problem. Regulate RI will host a Coalition Meeting at the Rochambeau Library (708 Hope St, Providence) on Saturday, June 14 at 2 pm, and a community discussion, “Marijuana Policy: What Everyone Needs to Know,” at the same location on Thursday, June 19 at 6 pm.

calling all rhody writers: report to uri Even if you don’t call yourself a writer, you might have a chapter or two of a sci-fi thriller, a sketch for a TV pilot tucked away on your laptop, or a slate of ideas uttered into your phone’s Voice Memos folder, languishing “until you have more time.” Perhaps you’re working on your dream project privately — painfully, slowly — and you don’t think you have it together enough to show the world. But hey, now’s the time, and right here within the comfy confines of Rhode Island, there’s inspiration for the taking: the Ocean State Summer Writing Conference at URI, from June 19–21. The conference is a mix of small group conversations, classes, and workshops focused on specific genres and topics from the wide-ranging (beginning, intermediate, and advanced fiction) to the specialized (science fiction, YA lit, memoir), plus larger panel discussions, keynote addresses, and straight-up hangout time with fellow bookish folks. Attendees select sessions according to their interests and may share their own writing if they choose. Many bring a work in progress — at any stage — for which they’re seeking feedback. Thomas Barkman, a conference coordinator, says the focus of the event is to give writers “the proper time, space, and tools to write,” when it can be a stretch to find them in the midst of a wild, busy life. This is the eighth year of the conference and its size and visibility are increasing thanks in part to the participation in recent years of Pulitzer Prize-winning authors (Jennifer Egan, Ayad Akhtar), National Book Award winners (Robert Stone), and even a Presidential inaugural poet (Richard Blanco). In addition to covering traditional concentrations — fiction, creative nonfiction, memoir, playwriting, poetry — the 2014 conference will place a new emphasis on the graphic novel, with a keynote address on Saturday, June 21 by the author Alison Bechdel, whose heart-shattering graphic memoirs Fun Home and Are You My Mother? are legends of the genre. Providence comic artists Paul Lyons, Walker Mettling, and Mickey Zacchilli will lead a conversation on alternative comics. There’s also a significant TV and screenwriting component, and sidebars on

f

artists’ books, poetry micro-books, switching between genres, and avoiding the pitfalls of writing in the first person. Barkman says that the majority of participants are from Rhode Island, and that there’s a “good spread” in terms of their career paths, from published professionals fine-tuning current work, to people employed in other fields who write on the side, to college or grad students still in the throes of academic life. He describes the atmosphere as “welcoming and intimate, but buzzing with activity,” a view shared by Rhode Island-based author Maria Mutch, whose meditative memoir about parenting her disabled son, Know the Night, was published by Simon & Schuster this spring. Mutch says that the campus itself will be quiet, with students having vacated for the summer, but the conference is “very lively,” with a “really nice energy.” Mutch brought a draft of her memoir to a previous conference and Mary Cappello, a professor of English at URI and Guggenheim Fellow in nonfiction, “read it and offered incredibly valuable advice” that helped her see new ways to shape the narrative. This year is Mutch’s second as a conference presenter; she will read from her work on Thursday, and take part in a Friday discussion on writing creative nonfiction about difficult subjects. Mutch welcomes the chance to “devote these few days solely to [her] work,” and to help others make writing a serious day-to-day pursuit. She praises the keynote addresses, saying “it’s inspiring to hear others talk about their [writing] process.” Rhode Island’s writing community can feel splintered, with lone souls working in relative seclusion, so coming together once a year provides fresh resolve and ideas. “Solitude is important, but you need some relief from that,” Mutch says. Secret writers, it’s time to come out of hiding. For more on the Ocean State Summer Writing Conference, visit uri.edu/summerwriting. All keynote addresses are free and open to the public, and single-day registrations are an option for those who cannot attend the entire conference. The #66 bus goes to the URI campus from Kennedy Plaza in Providence. _Vikki Warner

but a ticker telling you the exact mileage between you and any trucks using FTI’s “Serving Now” function. Though FTI now covers more than 850 cities nationwide, “It was this growing food truck scene in Providence that caught my attention,” Weiner says. “I went and visited some of the local trucks, [and] I fell in love with the stories of these small businesses trying to become successful.” Food Trucks In is, of course, its own small business trying to become successful. And at some point in the next three months, Weiner says, the company will switch on its revenue-generating model: a subscription fee for trucks (no more than $30, Weiner says) allowing trucks access to the check-in function, giving them a special FTI-operated locator map to use on their website, and giving them software that makes it easier for consumers to contact them for catering private functions. So, what percentage of US food trucks are registered with the site? Well, that depends on how you define “food truck.” Weiner says he’s heard US food truck population estimates ranging from 5000 to 300,000, with the high number including “every single ice cream truck and every single hot dog cart.” For the trucks that fit FTI’s criteria, though — being mobile and having a website, Facebook, or Twitter page — “we think the number is probably right now around 7500,” he says. FTI has approximately 4100 registered trucks to date, he says, with about 15 to 20 added each week.

The schedule

L

ast year, Jeff Ledoux, a mentor at Johnson & Wales’ Entrepreneurship Center, embarked on a Rhode Island food truck marathon, hitting 22 vehicles in three days. What did he learn? Well, besides the fact that our state has, to quote from his blog post documenting the journey, an “awesome”/

“amazing”/“delicious”/“stupid good”/“out of this world”/“the definition of insanity”/“so damn good”/“best . . . this side of the moon” array of mobile food options, Ledoux also walked away with a simple tip for anyone considering a similar mission. “We were ordering normal meals at each one, and we quickly realized that that’s a mistake,” he says. In an endurance test such as this, small orders are the way to go. Think: tater tots from Noble KNots, edamame and crispy spring rolls from Fugo, a single taco from Mijos tacos. We were inspired by Ledoux’s marathon when putting together a food truck roundup for this year’s Summer Guide. Not only did we venture out of our writing cave to sample nibbles from as many rolling restaurants as possible. (Warning: eat pulled pork sandwiches on successive days and you’ll feel like you’ve swallowed a cinder block.) But we also sorted our findings into small, bitesized portions. Read on. And, remember: the print version of The Providence Phoenix doubles as a handy place mat.

When you’re done perusing the list itself, click “Tweets” to see what the trucks are saying in real time. Example: a GottAQ! (@IGottaQ) tweet from a recent Sunday afternoon that reads, “Serving Now at Tucker Field, Across from Cumberland HS — Mendon Rd Cumberland Until 5:00PM EDT.” But Twitter has its limits. It can’t, for example, tell you the exact distance between you and the nearest food truck. That’s where food truckS in comes in. FTI, the recent creation of Johnson & Wales grad and former limousine company owner Eric Weiner and his business partner, Steven Cross, has a simple goal: “to be the best source to find food trucks anywhere in the country,” Weiner says. And they’re doing a damn good job. When you log on to foodtrucksin.com and type in your zip code or address, you’ll get not a just a complete list of the trucks serving your area (each with its own accompanying profile page),

Looking to get the most mileage out of your food truck budget? Check out these high-density food truck gatherings taking place this summer. oceAn StAte food truck pArk* round-up: Every other Friday throughout the summer - June 13 and 27, July 11 and 25, August 8 and 22 – from 5-10 pm, at 50 Niantic Avenue, in Providence providence fLeA: Every summer Sunday from 10 am–4 pm, at 345 South Water Street “food truckS At the BeAch” in nArrAGAnSett: Mondays and Wednesdays, from 6–10 pm, through September, at 39 Boston Neck Rd *Yes, there is something call the “Ocean State Food Truck Park.” Tucked away next to an HVAC supply warehouse near the Cranston/ Providence line, it’s not necessarily what would be considered prime real estate (though it is visible from Route 10). But OSFTP does get points for at least two things: being the pioneer foodtrucks-only designated spot in Rhode Island, and the wooden shack on the premises painted with a psychedelic mini-mural of an anthropomorphic pizza slice rodeoriding an anthropomorphic hot dog.

The ordinance So, you just ordered four chili dogs and you’re waiting for their arrival. How to break the awkward silence? Well, one way to get your food truck operator talking is to toss out words like “ordinances” and “peddlers licenses.” We’ll let our friend Eric from Food Trucks In explain. “Just in the last 100 days, I’ve been to Dallas and Austin and Salt Lake City and Charlotte and Orlando and Miami and Atlanta and Asheville — all visiting trucks,” he says. “And I think that one of the challenges for a place like Providence and Rhode Island is ...because of the way that the vending licenses are, a food truck in Providence, if they want to operate statewide, needs to go get 39 vending licenses, one for every city and town.” Of these bureaucratic obstacle courses, none is more continued on p 10

infamous than the city of Cranston’s. In fact, when its food truck ordinance was passed last summer, it caught the attention of a “nationwide grassroots activism project” devoted to giving citizens “the tools and tips you need to effectively fight the abuse of government power in your own backyard,” the Institute for Justice. “While other cities were celebrating Independence Day, Cranston, Rhode Island clamped down on economic liberty,” reads an Institute blog post headlined “RHODE ISLAND TOWNS BANS FOOD TRUCKS FROM SELLING WITHIN 1000 FEET OF RESTAURANTS.” “On the Fourth of July, Cranston’s new food truck regulations took effect, meaning this Providence suburb now has some of the worst vending restrictions in the country.” Perhaps someone ought to ask Cranston mayor and 2014 Republican gubernatorial candidate, Allan Fung, how, on his watch, Cranston became nationally known for aggressive (some might say oppressive) government regulations?

The bistro on wheels Would you believe us if we told you there’s a food truck in Rhode Island, founded and run by a three-Michelin-star French chef, that serves escargot, steak frites, and crème brulee? What if we told you that, earlier this year, that same chef — we’ll call him “Mario Molliere,” and add the fact that he once cooked for the Queen of England — created a special $60 foie gras burger that sold out in two hours? What if we told you that, upon hearing rumors about said French-bistro-on-wheels, we set out in search for it and spotted it — a bright red truck with a pipe-smoking rooster logo emblazoned on the side — parked on Thayer Street near the Brown University Soldiers Memorial arch, then we proceeded to order an $18 “magret du canard au poivre” (worth every penny) and sit down with Molliere, who was — we’re really not kidding here — smoking a cigarette and sipping a coffee at the metal table set up next to the truck? Well, you should believe all of it. C’est vraix. The name of the truck (and its accompanying catering company) is pLouf pLouf. And, as our we finished our meal and asked Molliere if there was a sense of competition among food truckers, he responded in French-inflected English, “For me, I don’t have competition, because we are different. We are completely different.” Oui, Mario. Oui.

A healthy food truck It’s not an oxymoron. Take a gander at a few items from the SALAd mAn & Juice BAr’s menu: • “Apple Walnut Salad [$7]: Mixed greens, broccoli, apple, walnuts, feta cheese, with lime cilantro dressing” • “Asian Rice bowl [$8]: cabbage, snap peas, corn, red onions, peppers sautéed in Asian seasonings, and rice” • “Chicken, mushroom, and avocado burrito [$8]: mixed greens, shredded chicken, creamy avocado, basil dijon dressing” itssaladman.com, facebook.com/ItsSaladMan, @itssaladman on Twitter.

Political food truck crawl Broad Street in Providence has a food truck ecosystem all its own. “The converted ice cream trucks, RVs, and trailers have names like La Casa del Chimi, La Gran Casa del Chimi, and La Universidad del Chimi, reflecting restaurants back in the Dominican Republic or the turf battles on the street where these trucks have been fixtures for 20 years,” reads the edibleRHODY magazine report, “Broad Street Bounty.” If exploring this lesser-known gustatory terrain with a political candidate sounds like your idea of a solid Friday night, well, you’re in luck. On June 13, Roger Williams Law professor, former Providence Housing Court judge, and Providence mayoral candidate Jorge Elorza will host a Broad Street “Food Truck Crawl,” starting at Johnny’S chimi truck (986 Broad, between Sumter and Gallatin streets) at 5:30 pm. The event’s Facebook page comes with a disclaimer: “This is not a fundraiser or official campaign event. Attendance will not be interpreted as a formal endorsement of our campaign.” We got a few additional words of explanation from Elorza’s communications director John Taraborelli. “We chose Broad Street because it reflects so many cultures,” he says. “It’s a manifestation of both the diverse heritage in the city, but also the way all those cultures have mixed together to create a unique identity for the neighborhood. Nowadays food trucks are so trendy, but these trucks aren’t out there following a trend. They’re meeting a demand in the market ...and they’ll be doing it long after the foodie world moves on to some other shiny new thing. That’s worthy of as much attention as any other part of the city’s food scene.” ^ For more info, go to facebook.com/ events/302053956626034.

T

o set the scene: summertime, eight years ago, maybe 10. A Radiohead show at Great Woods in Mansfield, MA, which is now the Xfinity Center but will always be known as Great Woods. Dark and threatening skies, bulbous clouds churning high above like boiling mountains, an electricity in the air, across the wide lawn,

born of the drama above, born of the volume and energy of Mr. Yorke and his crew. Winds rose with crescendos. Then came the rain. Thunder, rumbling and roiling then sharp as a crack on the drum, lightning flashes brighter than the spotlights. People were scared. People were thrilled. Bone soaked and yelling with every flash of lightning, it was as though the band itself controlled the storm. It wasn’t the best concert I’ve been to, but it was one of the most memorable. That sort of thing doesn’t go down indoors. Inside, at a club or a stadium, the sound presses in more intensely as it bounces against walls and ceilings. But outdoors, what you sacrifice in sound quality, you make up for in something more elemental. Grass, sand, dirt, mud. Rain, sun, bugs, stars. What’s more summery than a blanket on the ground? A cooler, some pals, some tunes, the dizziness of a party with a crowd of strangers? Not much, we’ll say. Herein, six states’ worth of outdoor concerts, from big festivals and national acts, to smaller scale music series with local bands. There’s stuff worth the road trip, and stuff worth a bike ride downtown. Bring sunscreen. Bring a change of clothes.

Rhode Island

The Newport Folk Fest, arguably New England’s biggest concert festival of the summer, has not, for a long time, been the exclusive home of beards, braids, and banjos — though there’s some of that, and always will be. The festival has been showcasing up-and-comers and big, established bands since it began in 1959. The lineup for this year’s festival, July 25-27, includes Band of Horses, Ryan Adams, Mavis Staples, bright-eyed Conor Oberst, Deer Tick, Jenny Lewis, Sun Kil Moon, Trampled by Turtles, and about 60 other acts. You’ll have to be creative to get your hands on tickets — the mid-summer festival is typically sold out before the temperature hits 75. It’s the 60th anniversary of the Newport Jazz Fest (August 1-3), and this year’s headliners include Bobby McFerrin, the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis, Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, and dozens of others. The Newport CoNCert series on the waterfront presents a sampling of uptempo bands for summer evenings, including Yes (July 13), Barenaked Ladies (July 18), and KC

Wilco’s solid souNd music and arts festival at the edge of Massachusetts in North Adams, is taking the year off. But you can sign up now for updates for the 2015 festival, taking place June 26-28 of next year. The Museum of Fine Arts continues its CoNCerts iN the Courtyard series, with a cool range of folk and world music offerings, including Patty Larkin (August 6) and the energetic Debo Band, which takes its inspiration from ’60s era Ethiopian funk. Elsewhere in Boston museumland, the Institute of Contemporary Art showcases bands from Berklee College of Music every Thursday evening (July 10-August 28) as part of their free harborwalk souNds series. On the banks of the Charles River, the Bank of America Pavilion plays host to Willie Nelson (June 17), ’90s blowbacks Counting Crows and Toad the Wet Sprocket (July 2), the Goo Goo Dolls (August 15), among others. Piano man Billy Joel plays Fenway Park (June 26), and Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers play there on August 30. In New Bedford, where “cannibals stand chatting,” according to Herman Melville, whaling is traded for wailing (in a good way) with the New bedFord Folk Festival (July 5-6), with Kate Campbell, Vance Gilbert, the Murphy Beds, Christ Smither, Spuyten Duyvil, and many more. The indomitable taNglewood in lovely Lenox is best known for its classical series as the Boston Symphony Orchestra makes their summer performance home there, but they also host a few rock shows. James Taylor’s Fourth of July shows are already sold out, but Train plays on August 29; Josh Groban plays on August 30; and Tony Bennett gives the season’s farewell performance on August 31. The lowell summer musiC series has a bunch of top notch shows including Lucinda Williams (June 27), Neko Case (June 28), Andrew Bird (July 12), and Lyle Lovett (August 16) — all of whom seem uniquely suited to play in this old mill city. The bands at this year’s greeN river Festival in Greenfield are as notable as the hot-air balloon rides also on offer during the weekend (July 12-13). You have Josh Ritter and the Royal City Band, the Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Lady, Grant-Lee Phillips, Lady Lamb the Beekeeper, and a bunch of others. Continued on p 14

Some of the biggest shows in the state take place at Bangor’s Darling Pavilion as part of the waterFroNt CoNCert series, which brings blast-from-the-pasters Boston (July 2), Styxx and Foreigner (July 5), and Bad Company with Lynyrd Skynyrd (July 10). Later summer brings Arcade Fire (August 20) to the stage. Rob Zombie brings his hard and heavy mayhem Festival to Bangor again on July 17, with Mastodon, Amon Amarth, and Five Finger Death Punch. The Darling Pavilion will also host the three-day ameriCaN Folk Festival (August 22-24), with a slew of folkie and world acts, and the four-day kahbaNg festival (August 7-10), whose full lineup will be announced soon, is already slated to include performances by funk/progrockers Dopapod, the lovely and bizarre St. Vincent, and the one and only DMX. Elsewhere in the state, folk and blues rules the scene. The North atlaNtiC blues Festival (July 12-13) in Rockland features Joe Louis Walker, the Mannish Boys, Victor Wainwright, Joanna Connor, Mr. Sipp, and more. Rockland is also home to the annual maiNe lobster Festival (July 30-August 3), and the Saturday night show features the Johnny Winter Band, Vanilla Fudge, Peter Rivera, and others. The full festival lineup will be announced soon. In South Hiram, the bluegrass foot-stomping of the ossipee valley musiC Festival will run from July 24-27 with the Wood Brothers, Willie Watson, Aoife O’Donovan, the Carper Family, the Barefoot Movement, the Once, and many more.

New Hampshire doesn’t draw as many summerers as Maine, but they have their fair share of outdoor shows this season. The Pavilion at Meadowbrook, on the shores of Lake Winnipesaukee in Gilford, hosts Jennifer Nettles with Indigo Girls (July 12), followed the next night by James Taylor. Ludacris and Juicy J play July 26, and Bob Weir and Ratdog will draw the Deadheads on August 19. The great waters musiC Festival in Wolfeboro brings the redoubtable Tom Rush (June 27) and Lori McKenna (August 2), among others. The river house restauraNt CoNCert series in Prescott Park in Portsmouth might have the best selection of shows for the most reasonable amount of money, with a suggested donation of $8-$10. That’ll get you a spot to spread out your blanket by the harbor to see Patty Griffin (June 21), Rosanne Cash (July 5), Mary Chapin Carpenter (July 12), the Lone Bellow (July 16), Ruthie Foster (August 10), Taj Mahal (August 22), and others throughout the season. Vermonters Ben & Jerry sponsor the Shelbourne Museums CoNCerts oN the greeN series, with John Hiatt and Robert Cray (July 10), Nickel Creek (July 26), and Old Crow Medicine Show (July 29). The free middlebury Festival oN the greeN (July 6-12) plays host to the Stray Birds, Anais Mitchell, Matuto, Josh Panda and the Hot Damned, and others. There’s something that brings out the hippie in all of us at outdoor shows, but that’ll be especially true at the gatheriNg oF the vibes festivals in Bridgeport, Connecticut, taking place this year July 31-August 3. It’s a who’s-who and who’s-beenbefore of jam bands, including Widespread Panic, Strangefolk, moe., the Dark Star Orchestra, Leftover Salmon, Rusted Root, and more. The Elm City (New Haven) plays host every summer to the iNterNatioNal Festival oF arts & ideas (June 14-28) with performances, lectures, and interactive events. Free concerts on the New Haven Green include Lalah Hathaway with Ruben Studdard, the Martha Redbone Roots Project, and Brandy Clark.

The birds of summer A guide to our fine feAthered friends _By liz l e e years, making them much more of a commitment than most people realize. On a recent tour of the sanctuary, I see blue, green, and red Lorikeets, flocks of small green Quaker Parrots, Scarlet Macaws, and I listen to a few words spoken by a pearly white Cockatoo. She only says things like “hello,” and “pretty bird,” but I’m convinced she’s some kind of oracle. I’m in awe of their beauty and intelligence, but Karen makes a point to tell me that what I’m looking at is a tragedy — a testament to human failure as companions. But she will also tell me that they simply don’t make good pets. Parrots in the wild are highly social and seldom alone; when caged and isolated they become aggressive and overprotective of their owners, or they start self-mutilating like Lady Walter. “The aggression happens because they’re wired to establish a mate and a territory, and to have babies and defend those things,” Karen says. “And when they’ve been raised by humans they see you as their companions, which means that your husband or your boyfriend is toast — he’s gotta go,” she explains. “Yeah, birds are not nice. They are beasts. They have to be, by design, by evolution.” Even with such a large space, Karen says they had to turn away 500 parrots in 2013 alone. In 2012, that number topped 800. “The birds we have now, we’ve promised we’re going to take care of them for the rest of their lives,” she says. “So we have to last another 80 or 100 years. Failure is not an option because all of these birds depend on us.” To find out more or to schedule a tour of the sanctuary, visit fosterparrots.com or facebook.com/fosterparrots.

IF you buIld It, they wIll come — the bIrds, that Is

S

unny skies have finally arrived in the Ocean State, which means — what else? — it’s time to hang out with some birds. Instead of sharing our full-length avian itinerary — which includes a visit to the Norman Bird Sanctuary in Middletown, downloading the nine-page “Birds Recorded In RI” checklist from

ribird.org, and urging you to keep a close eye on the American Bird Association’s Rhody-specific message boards (“A Scissor-tailed Flycatcher is being seen at Carter Preserve in Charlestown. The bird is pale, a hint of salmon color on the flanks but it has a short, broken tail”) — we decided to keep things low-key and simply point out three bird-related places and projects worthy of your attention this summer. Read on, feathered friends.

Foster Parrots

Lady Walter is looking good today. A photo of her in a pink and green sweater already has 125 likes on Facebook and it was only posted an hour ago. The sweater is made out of a baby sock, and it serves a purpose outside of just looking cute. Like many captive birds, she has a behavioral disorder wherein she plucks her own feathers out with her beak, and the sweater helps alleviate that. She’s an old lady now, somewhere around 60 years old, and she’s got arthritic feet, so she has to use her beak as a cane when she walks. It’s been a hard life, but things are looking up. Lady Walter lives in Hope Valley, on the site of what was once the largest egg and chicken farm in Rhode Island, Chickadee Farm — a place where hundreds of birds used to be slaughtered each week, and where hundreds of birds now go to be saved. When Karen Windsor

and Marc Johnson, the husband and wife team behind a nonprofit called Foster Parrots, bought the property in 2007, it had already been sitting vacant for several years. “It was a big crap-filled, rat-infested, abandoned building, and my husband walked in and said, ‘I could do something with this,’ and I said ‘Are you freakin’ kidding me?’ ” Karen says. That was in 2007, when they had more than 200 birds and they were still running the sanctuary out of their house. Foster Parrots started accidentally nearly 20 years ago in Cambridge, Massachusetts, where Marc owned a pottery studio to which he would bring his blue and gold Macaw, Wally. Visitors would see Wally, and occasionally ask Marc if he was interested in taking on another parrot they could no longer keep. “It turns out, people were giving me their parrots because they were very difficult pets,” Marc explains in Parrot Confidential, a 2013 PBS documentary about the unwanted parrot crisis in the US. “Before I knew it, I had outgrown the pottery studio and I had to figure out some way of dealing with it.” After buying the property in Hope Valley, Marc and Karen established the New England Exotic Wildlife Sanctuary, about 25,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor aviaries, currently home to about 450 birds that have either been rescued from lives of neglect and abuse, given up by people who could no longer care for them, or who simply outlived their owners. Exotic birds can live up to 100

“I have been to Lippitt Park no less than four times today to look at the light,” says Esther Solondz. She’s sitting in the pale afternoon sun that floods in through the windows of her Pawtucket studio, her black pants and clogs covered in drippings of paint, epoxy, and silicon. Surrounding her is a white palace in seven parts — a currently dismantled installation, two years in the making, that will stand 15 feet tall in Lippitt Park on the east side of Providence when finished. “It’s very important to me that the light comes through this at different parts of the day,” Solondz continues, referring to the clear, stalactite-like formations that cover the structure’s steel frame and the translucent thread-line that runs through it. When all seven parts of the piece are fitted together and installed, the finished product will be the “The Hummingbird Palace.” Imagine a web-like palace with white stalactites and stalagmites, coated in a clear, drippy substance that catches and reflects the light at every possible angle. It looks sort of like a castle made of sugar. Now imagine a tangle of Morning Glories, Trumpet Honeysuckle, and other flowering vines planted at the base of the castle, gradually climbing and changing the structure itself while attracting hummingbirds in the process. The palace will also be equipped with 10 hummingbird feeders to be regularly filled by community volunteers. The end result will look sort of like the skeleton of a wedding cake, appearing delicate and almost weightless, yet rooted in the ground. Two summers ago, Solondz built a much different version of the project out of wood and various recycled materials in the backyard of her summer home. This led her to start imagining a more sophisticated design. She spent the next year building small-scale models of the project, riffing on the idea of the ethereal palace, and exhibited them in 2013 at Gallery NAGA in Boston, in a show entitled “The Slow Vast Heave of Matter That Just Floats In Continued on p 18

the World.” In a review of the exhibit, Boston Globe critic Cate McQuaid wrote, “Imagine if she could create a structure, large enough to walk inside, of wire, and dewdrops, and decay.” Now Solondz has done exactly that, and she’s keeping her fingers crossed that the birds will come. This won’t be the first time she’s collaborated with hummingbirds; she says she used to lure them into her studio with a feeder, and they would eat, and the sugar water would dribble out of their mouths onto the drawings she was making. But most of us aren’t lucky enough to have such regular encounters with these elusive birds, and it’s this elusiveness, says Solondz, that makes the project so exciting. “If people actually get to experience a hummingbird through all of this, I think that would be awesome,” she says. An opening reception for The Hummingbird Palace will be held in Lippitt Park (at the intersection of Hope Street and Blackstone Boulevard) on June 26 from 4 to 6:30 pm.

the urban bIrder

The view from Peter Green’s downtown Providence loft is dramatic. One east-facing window offers a view of Kennedy Plaza, where he says he regularly witnesses drug deals, sexual solicitations, and the occasional public defecation. An adjacent window offers a great view of the Superman Building, where a different kind of drama plays out on a daily basis. This one is a family drama, and Green has gotten to know the family pretty well. He tells me stories of domestic violence, absentee mothers, hungry babies; he’s even photographed the parents having sex. Actually, he’s been photographing them from his window and the street below since 2006. This may sound invasive, but the family doesn’t seem to mind — probably because they’re too busy mauling seagulls in mid-air and flying at speeds in excess of 200 miles per hour. Such is the life of a Peregrine Falcon. Green is a graphic designer who came to Providence eight years ago and moved into a sixth-floor loft in Downcity. He works

from home, and the exceptional view from his desk gives him the opportunity to notice things he may have otherwise overlooked, like the Red-tailed Hawk lacerating a pigeon in Burnside Park, the American Kestrel (a small falcon) who sometimes hangs out in the eaves of the Peerless Building, and of course, that family of Peregrines whose nest sits at the very top of 111 Westminster Street, making them the building’s only current occupants. Since then, photographing urban raptors has kind of become his thing. Green’s photos have been featured in The Providence Journal, in exhibits at the Audubon Society of Rhode Island (ASRI), and on the American Kestrel Partnership website. The images are remarkable because they offer a rare opportunity to see these birds up-close, but also because Green often captures the birds in such close proximity to humans completely unaware of their presence. “It’s definitely something I’m passionate about,” says Green as he shows me several large-scale prints of his work — a falcon, a snowy owl, a hawk. “I never used to get up early. Now I wake up at seven a.m. just to go out walking around the city looking for these things.” Luckily, all of Green’s hard work has paid off. He’s developed relationships with local conservation groups like the Born to be Wild Nature Center in Bradford, RI, where he volunteers to help rehabilitate injured birds and, in turn, gets to photograph them close-up. His work with ASRI comes with its perks as well. On May 25 he traveled to the very top of the Superman Building to photograph new members of the Peregrine family on bird banding day. “It’s my favorite day of the year,” Green says. ^ To see more of Green’s photos, visit providenceraptors.com. Also, insider tip: to catch a glimpse of the Peregrines from the street, stand just outside of Au Bon Pain on Westminster and look for a box towards the left side of the top of the Superman Building — this is where they nest. Or simply visit the Audubon Society’s website and check out the Providence Peregrine webcam, streaming live 24 hours a day: asri.org.


TOGETHER, SMALL BUSINESSES ARE

RI’S BIGGEST BUSINESS. “Mereco decided to use the Exchange due to its unique Employee Choice option which enabled our employees to choose from sixteen different plan designs.”

“From an organizational perspective, the transition was pretty seamless but more importantly our employees had a much wider range of options from which to choose than ever before.”

Phil Papoojian, President & COO, Managing Director MERECO

Peter Mello Managing Director WATERFIRE PROVIDENCE

“The employees at Pilgrim Screw made the decision to obtain health coverage through HealthSource RI because we saved enough money on the premiums to fund our health savings accounts.” Geoff Grove President & CEO PILGRIM SCREW

As a small business owner, you know that big businesses get all the breaks. That’s why they pay less for pretty much everything — including health insurance. But with HealthSource RI, small businesses can join forces and get a better deal on health and dental insurance.

“Not only did the business save money, but we were also able to offer our employees the opportunity to pick the health insurance plan that made sense for them.” Peter Kammerer General Manager THE SANDWICH HUT

Summer screenings apes, cops, action heroes, and a boy’s life _By jess e pa pin e a u

Dawn of the planet of the apes

S

ummer started earlier than ever this year with the likes of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Godzilla, and X-Men: Days of Future Past busting blocks well before Memorial Day. But as the sweaty season rolls along, there will be

plenty of reasons to retreat into an airconditioned sanctuary with a giant screen for a couple of hours, whether you’re into superheroes, satire, or sequels.

SEQUEL SEASON

What was once considered a lazy filmmaking strategy has become the norm, as more movies are being concocted as franchises as opposed to stand-alone experiences (with all of Marvel’s recent releases exemplifying this perfectly). And it’s clear that audiences love them — Iron Man 3, Fast & Furious 6, and Star Trek Into Darkness all grossed more than $200 million last year — so why would Hollywood stop feeding its addiction? This summer is no different, as a new batch of old ideas will make millions and millions of dollars. The special effects sequel parade kicks off with Transformers: age of exTincTion (June 27), which is Michael Bay’s fourth Hasbro-core entry, but the first with Mark Wahlberg in the leading role (replacing confirmed crazy person Shia LaBeouf). Bay has said that this will be the last Transformers film he directs, but also noted that this marks the beginning of a new trilogy. Confusing? Sure. But the first three movies made nearly $3 billion worldwide, and it likely wasn’t because of the director or actors involved — people just like seeing robots and aliens at war. Dawn of The PlaneT of The aPes (July 11) teases a war between Earth’s remaining humans and a band of hyper-intellectual apes led by Caesar (played by motion-capture savant Andy Serkis). Since Charlton Heston already spoiled us in 1968, we unfortunately know how this one turns out,

but that doesn’t mean this flick will be devoid of drama. Gary Oldman, Keri Russell, and Judy Greer also star. Proving once again that people love watching shit blow up, the third Expendables movie in four years — aptly titled The exPenDables 3 — arrives on August 15. This is not a franchise that favors subtlety — the films are basically just one beatdown after another. The badass cast, featuring capital-M men Jason Statham, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jet Li, and Terry Crews, adds Antonio Banderas, Harrison Ford, and Mel Gibson to the ranks for the third go-round. Any movie that’s co-written by Sylvester Stallone (who also stars) is absolutely worth seeing. Perhaps the most anticipated sequel of the summer is sin ciTy: a Dame To Kill for (August 22), which comes nine years after its predecessor. Jessica Alba, Bruce Willis, Rosario Dawson, and Mickey Rourke reprise their roles from the beloved original, while Josh Brolin, Eva Green, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Ray Liotta inject some new blood into the pulpy crime thriller. Fans of Frank Miller’s source-material comics may be upset that the film deviates from the original, but the fact that this long-awaited sequel is coming out after years of doubt should keep fans happy — for awhile, anyway.

FUNNy StUFF

Lives don’t always have to be at stake in sequels. Take 22 JumP sTreeT (June 13), which comes two years after the surprisingly hilarious 21 Jump Street. Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum return as undercover Continued on p 22

cops, this time infiltrating a local college. It can be challenging to make comedy sequels work, especially when there’s a clear template in place (see: The Hangover series), but if 22 is even half as funny as 21, it will be a success. Though some have been aware of her chops since her turn as Chef Sookie on Gilmore Girls, Melissa McCarthy’s stock has risen considerably following her scenestealing supporting performance in Bridesmaids three years ago. Since then, she has quickly become one of Hollywood’s few go-to leading ladies in comedy, carrying otherwise mediocre films like Identity Thief and The Heat, and starring in the popular CBS sitcom Mike & Molly. In her latest film, McCarthy plays the titular Tammy (July 2), a down-on-her-luck waitress who shakes things up by taking a road trip with her boozy grandma (played by a nearly unrecognizable Susan Sarandon). This is also something of a passion project for McCarthy who co-wrote the film with husband (and director) Ben Falcone. While McCarthy has only recently proven herself as a veritable leading actor in comedies, Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel have been doing it for years. In sex TaPe (July 25), the pair play a couple who decide to spice up their decade-long marriage by documenting their intimacies, only to lose the video the next morning, leading them on a frantic search to keep their privates private. Rob Lowe, Jack Black, and Ellie Kemper add to the high jinks.

SUbStANtiAL FArE

When discussing film, the term “director’s vision” comes up often, but it’s never

applied as perfectly to a movie as it does to Richard Linklater’s boyhooD (July 11), which follows a child’s journey through life (newcomer Ellar Coltrane) from age six to 18. Filming for this ambitious project began in 2002 and continued for a few weeks each year through 2013. Ethan Hawke, who plays the boy’s father, called the project Tolstoy-esque in scope. “Doing a scene with a young boy at the age of 7 when he talks about why do raccoons die, and at the age of 12 when he talks about video games, and 17 when he asks me about girls . . . it’s a little bit like timelapse photography of a human being.” Boyhood debuted in January at the Sundance Film Festival and has garnered universal acclaim. Based on Nick Hornby’s 2005 novel of the same name, a long way Down (July 11) is a dark comedy centered on four strangers whose meet-cute happens in the worst way possible — on a London rooftop of which they all intended to jump off. The quirky quartet is played by Pierce Brosnan, Toni Collette, Aaron Paul, and Imogen Poots. In just three days, Zach Braff raised $2 million on Kickstarter in order to fund wish i was here (July 18), the second feature film he’s directed and the spiritual sequel to 2004’s indie hit Garden State. Braff plays the main character, Aiden, who undergoes a mid-life crisis after his father (Mandy Patinkin) is diagnosed with cancer. A struggling actor, Aiden tries to redefine his identity by home schooling his two young children. Early reviews haven’t been universally positive, but Braff’s brilliance behind the camera on Garden State gives him the benefit of the doubt on his sophomore effort. ^

Offbeat Ocean State A unique collection of summer diversions _By matt he w l a w re n c e

H

ere in New England, outdoor events only really happen for a few months a year, so it’s best to take advantage of them while we can. While longtime Rhode Islanders are probably well aware of events like Foo Fest and the Charlestown Seafood Festival, there’s a summer’s worth of under-the-radar attractions. From a

polo match and a shark-hunting tournament to ethnic festivals from the old and new world, here’s a collection of more offbeat happenings taking place in the Ocean State this summer.

year’s “NObamacare” float was relatively subtle, but during the early 2000s the parade was inundated with effigies of Osama Bin Laden being killed in various bloody ways.

June 14: Scottish Highland Festival

July 20: Colombian-American Parade

Each June, the Washington County Fairgrounds in Richmond are transformed into a Scottish fantasy land for a day. The fields are filled with the sounds of bagpipes, while a variety of traditional and contemporary bands and dance groups perform on stage. There’s also a sheep herding demonstration. The big draw, though, is the heavy athletics: men and women tossing cabers, which to the untrained eye look like telephone poles. Last year competitor Mike Zolkiewicz broke his own world record in the Weight Over Bar, a competition in which a kilted man uses one hand to throw a 56-pound weight straight up and backwards over a goalpost. The food is also interesting; you can sample haggis and slurp down an Irn-Bru, the bright orange soft drink that outsells Coca-Cola in its homeland.

Half a century ago, workers from Colombia began moving to Central Falls to work in its factories. And while factory jobs aren’t what they used to be, the Colombian population of Central Falls is now firmly a part of the city’s social fabric. Each year, Colombian Independence Day is celebrated with a red, blue, and yellow flag raising at city hall. A morning parade then winds its way through the streets of Rhode Island’s smallest city, followed by a day-long festival in Slater Park. The event is sponsored by the Colombian American Cultural Society of RI and features folk dancing as well as more modern cumbia and reggaeton music. Additionally, there is plenty of traditional Colombian food.

The tradition of Ancients and Horribles Parades goes back to the mid-nineteenth century, when some spunky residents of Lowell, Massachusetts, decided to mock an uppity Boston military organization commonly known as the Ancients and Honorables. The tradition lingers to this day, with satirical Ancients and Horribles parades taking place on the North Shore in towns like Salem, Beverly, and Marblehead. It’s a little unclear how the tradition made its way to Chepachet, which began holding Ancients and Horribles parades in 1926. Less grand but no less patriotic than the more celebrated Bristol parade, this one’s a mix of Uncle Sam flag-waving, strange clowns in horror makeup, and frequently gory political commentary. Last

July 17-20: Newport Monster Shark Tournament Animal rights supporters might want to skip Newport this weekend, when the Monster Shark Tournament hits Aquidneck Island after 27 years on Martha’s Vineyard. Sponsored by the Boston Big Game Fishing Club, the event has drawn fire from groups like the American Humane Society. Last year’s event featured more than 100 fishing vessels, and first place was won by Frank Greiner Jr., who pulled in a 429-pound porbeagle. The actual fishing takes place between 50 and 75 miles offshore, but the final weigh-ins are what pull in the big crowds. This year’s tournament is being celebrated in honor of Steven James, the original organizer of the tournament, who died this past winter in a duck hunting accident.

July 26 & 27: Cultural Survival Bazaar

the Scottish highland Festival

d a n i el h y l a nd

July 4: Ancients and Horribles Parade

One of the summer’s more unique shopping events takes place in Tiverton Four Corners, where Cambridge, Massachusetts-based nonprofit Cultural Survival hosts a bazaar featuring unique folk arts from around the world. Cultural Survival dedicates itself to preserving the language and heritage of indigenous people around the world, and the bazaar reflects the wide scope of their mission. Ugandan

bark wall-hangings can be found next to gun-toting Zapatista dolls, just around the corner from jewelry crafted in Tibet. A Narragansett food stand sells venison and something called Indian tacos, which are less a taco and more a doughboy topped with a very large salad.

August 9 & 10: Festival de la Virgen de Urkupiña A sighting of the Virgin Mary by a shepherd girl in Bolivia 400 years ago might seem like an odd occasion for a celebration on Smith Hill, but that’s exactly what happens each August when Bolivians celebrate the feast of the Virgin of Urkupiña. (In case the name looks funny, Urkupiña’s not a Spanish name. It’s a Spanish spelling of a phrase in Quechua, Bolivia’s second most common language.) Kicking off with a mass in the basement of Saint Patrick’s Church, this colorful festival features bright costumes, dancing, lots of flowers, and lots of Bolivian food. According to the Rhode Island Bolivian American Association, it is not uncommon for festivals there to mix elements of Catholicism with elements from older native religions.

August 16: Newport International Polo Series Polo might have a reputation as a sport for the superrich, but watching a game at the Newport International Polo Series costs less than a ticket to a 3D movie. For $12, you can spend an afternoon sitting on the lawn, watching grown men playing croquet on horses — that’s what polo is, right? — or simply people-watching. You’re also welcome to bring your own picnic baskets and even grills are allowed, so fill a cooler with some wine and make an afternoon of it. Games happen every Saturday during the summer, but the August 16 match between Team USA and Team Jamaica is extra special. Afterwards, there’s a buffet-style jerk grill to commemorate Jamaican Independence Day (tickets for the dinner must be bought online in advance). ^

It’s Beatles week here at the Editors’ Desk. The yeah-yeah-yeahness kicks off today at the Dunkin’ Donuts Center, which is hosting “the Beatles Fine art show & sale,” coinciding with an appearance by the group’s drummer on the 15th. The organized say that the exhibit is the “largest collection of hand-signed art work created by John, Paul, George and Ringo — very rare.” Highlights are Lennon’s “Bag One” pen-and-ink drawings; McCartney’s abstract art; Harrison’s song illustrations; and Starr’s 2014 art releases. “I started in the late ’90s with my computer art,” Ringo said in 2005. “While I was touring, it gave me something to do in all those crazy hotels you have to stay in on the road.” The show is open today and Saturday from 11 am to 8 pm and on Sunday from 11 am to 3 pm | Free; proceeds benefit Ringo’s charity, the Lotus Foundation, which “strives to advance social welfare in diverse areas”

Beer By the Bay

We were at the first one, so we can confidently state that the 2nd annual east Bay Beer Festival, presented by Brickyard Wine & Spirits of Barrington and the East Bay Home Brew

Club, is going to be a real good time. The forecast is poifect, it’s the day before Father’s Day (psst, Dad is thirsty), and it’s happening on the waterfront next to the Blount Clam Shack in Warren from 12-4 pm. And it’s (almost) all local: Rhody brewers Foolproof, Trinity, ’Gansett, Grey Sail, Revival, Bucket, Ravenous, Brutopia, Whalers, and Newport Storm will be pouring, plus Buzzards Bay and Berkshire (MA) and Two Roads (CT) . There will also be a brewing demonstration and music by Vince Thompson & Friends. Admission is $25 advance, $30 at the tent; proceeds benefit the Hopkins Center, a legal aid organization that helps the poor, and TAP-IN (Touch A Person In Need), a volunteer outreach program that provides resources and services to East Bay residents in need. Go to Brickyard’s Facebook page for updates and more input

sunday 15 starr power

You may have heard that the Beatles commemorated the 50th anniversary of their US invasion in February. ringo starr got caught up in “all that Beatles stuff” too; he delayed work on his new album “because of the rehearsals and the fun and the joy,” he told Billboard. But he won’t get back to the studio until July, because he’s on the road with his All-Star Band: Steve Lukather (Toto), Greg Rolie

(Santana, Journey), Todd Rundgren, Richard Paige (Mr. Mister), and Gregg Bissionette. “Everybody knows by now I love this band. I love the guys and we all get on well and I’m trying to do anything to keep it together. Everyone is a prime musician. There’s not any liggers in the band, really.” And Ringo is marking his own anniversary: the first edition of the All-Starrs came together 25 years ago. “I think it’s a great show to come and see,” he noted. “I always say it’s like a jukebox, y’know? Every song’s a hit. I put it together, and it’s gone on.” | Tickets for his show at PPAC are sold out, but you can find a few on the secondary market | 401.421.ARTS | ppacri.org

wednesday 18 the Faux Four

We’re guessing you never saw the Beatles. If you want the virtual Fab Four experience, then rain: a triBute to the Beatles delivers the goods. There’s a live band (spoiler alert: the bassist is right-handed), video projections, and costume changes which span the group’s evolution throughout the ’60s. Steve Landes (Lennon) says, “What sets our show apart is the musicality. We’ve never looked at thing as a novelty act. The main focus is top-notch musicians who can really play these parts as accurately as possible.” Rain is at PPAC at 7 pm | $25-$65 | 401.421.ARTS | ppacri.org

theater meeting of the minds Freud’s Last session at 2nd story _By Bill rod r igu ez Many well-known people visited the

dying Sigmund Freud in his last weeks, f including Virginia and Leonard Woolf, H.G.

Wells, and Salvador Dali. But playwright Mark St. Germain chose to fashion a visit by British writer C.S. Lewis into Freud’s Last Session. 2nd Story Theatre is presenting a brisk two-person imagined dialogue in a trimmed version in their intimate downstairs space (through June 29 and July 24-August 3). It has been pared down to a hair less than an hour from the 75-minute length announced in the program. Directed by Pat Hegnauer, the knockout production avoids digressions and keeps the interplay punchy, leaving us reeling as well. Think Crossfire on the History Channel. Lewis was chosen for this last encounter with the man who transformed 20thcentury thinking about thought because that paragon of rationalism was an atheist, and the author of The Chronicles of Narnia and The Screwtape Letters was a prominent Christian apologist. Debating the existence of God and an afterlife was an appropriate topic for their conversation, since the devout nonbeliever was going to die in a few weeks, at his own hand, from the oral cancer he’d been suffering from for 16 years. Ed Shea portrays Freud with the excitement and wit of a man who, at 83, knows he is dying and that his every argument will be one of his last. Wayne Kneeland gives us a Lewis who is supremely selfconfident about his faith without losing our respect by being smug. Director Hegnauer choreographs an intricate series of dances between them, from balletic to aggressive tango. We find them at a moment fraught with tension. The time is 1939 and Germany has just invaded Poland, as a radio reports. Freud and his family have escaped to London. His wife is out shopping for canned goods because bombing is expected to begin at any time. Anna, his daughter and successor in developing psychoanalysis, is brusquely summoned by phone at one point when he is in particularly excruciating pain, but she never arrives.

WHo’S THE FooL? Kneeland and shea.

All the seriousness is frequently leavened by humor, in passing (“Don’t sit there!” Freud says when Lewis is heading for the couch) or elaborately (Christian objections to premarital sex, Freud observes, are “like sending a boy off to play a concerto when the only time he’s had to play his piccolo was alone in his room”). Freud has invited Lewis because he was interested in a recent essay on Milton’s Paradise Lost, the classic explanation of good and evil in the world. Lewis, 40, had been an atheist into his 30s but is making up time as a dedicated Christian. For his own part, Freud argues that Lewis is seeking God as a search for a perfect father figure to replace his actual, as he put it, “tyrant” father. That humans might crave a benign afterlife is made manifest by the abject terror of the two men when a glaring air raid siren sends them scrambling in panic for gas masks. The theological clarification is perfect, without a word spoken. Don’t come to this play for rational arguments about the existence of a God and afterlife; such discussions are inevitably reduced to a declaration of faith — that’s probably where the shortening came in this production. As Freud observes: “One of us is a fool. If you are right, you will be able to tell me so. If I am right, none of us will ever know.” The set is Freud’s study, which he explains is a reproduction of his Vienna office, and designer Karl Pelletier has taken pains to bring us there, with ranks of bookshelves, archaeological knickknacks, opulent Persian rugs and, of course, a backless couch. By the end of this brief but exhaustive bit of intellectual voyeurism, we all could use a little lie down, if not a 50-minute hour of therapy. In a review of the 2010 Off-Broadway production, The New York Times cited a “lack of fire” and “lack of tension.” Between the skillful compression and pacing by director Hegnauer and the strategically placed passionate outbursts by Shea, any such repression has been wiped away. This is a riveting accomplishment. ^

Peter Glantz —who will reveal “the hidden story within the art during a tour of the gallery” this Saturday and Sunday, June 14 and 15, at 2 and 3 pm — has said that the city attracts “people who are focused more on creating a culture and community through art and performance than their own individual careers.” It’s a dedication to craft — knitting, quilting, screenprinting, elaborate drawing. It’s everyday life refracted through the grotesque and otherworldly. “There’s this element of fantasticalness,” Ketten says. It adds up to a thrilling show, one of the best of the year.

This sequel to the hit action comedy 21 Jump Street is better all around: the pacing is more consistent, the sight gags more imaginative, the self-referential jokes sharper. Directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller make good on their background in animation (Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs, The Lego Movie); the action sequences, unlike those of the first movie, have a sustained kinetic energy, and the throwaway gags are delivered at such breakneck speed that this occasionally evokes old Looney Tunes cartoons. Too often, though, the satire of action-movie bombast is indistinguishable from the bombast itself (large-scale destruction, over-loud sound effects, actors yelling all their dialogue). With Jonah Hill, Channing Tatum, Ice Cube, and lots of stand-up comedians in supporting roles. _Ben Sachs

FeD up 97 miNUtEs | pg | JaNE pickENs Narrated by Katie Couric, this documentary about the childhood obesity crisis takes dead aim at the US food and agricultural industries for their ruthless lobbying, disingenuous labeling, predatory advertising, and cynical disregard for the public health. Writers Mark Monroe and Stephanie Soechtig date the crisis from 1977, when a US Senate committee on nutrition prepared guidelines urging Americans to eat less and reduce their intake of fat, sugar, and cholesterol; perversely, this led not to healthier diets but to the marketing bonanza of fat-free foods that instead were loaded with sucrose and help account for the fact that Americans’ sugar consumption has doubled since then. Thumbnail portraits of morbidly obese kids — including a 14-year-old boy driven to gastric-bypass surgery — introduce a plaintive note to the argument, especially since, as the documentary notes, many school cafeterias are now indistinguishable from fast-food joints. Soechtig directed. _J.R. Jones

In the acclaimed Wendy and Lucy (2008), writer-director Kelly Reichardt and screenwriter Jon Raymond submerged their anger over America’s fraying social safety net in a simple story of a homeless young woman and her dog; this excellent drama is more explicit politically but marries the rhetoric to a slow-burning suspense story that won’t let go. Three scruffy young eco-terrorists (Jesse Eisenberg, Dakota Fanning, Peter Sarsgaard) plot to blow up a dam in Oregon with a boatful of explosives, but in the finest noir tradition, something goes terribly wrong and they break ranks. Eisenberg, an actor prone to strutting and preening, gives his most restrained and effective performance in years, and Fanning is perfectly believable as an East Coast rich girl who bankrolls the operation but can’t live with the consequences. As in Wendy and Lucy, the natural and social environs are impeccably authentic, in this case conveying the bohemian radicalism of the Portland area that nurtures the trio’s dangerous scheme. _J.R. Jones

Weber, who wrote the superior teen romance The Spectacular Now, reunite for this generous, sensitively performed melodrama about cancer-stricken teens who fall in love. Like the earlier movie, it was adapted from an acclaimed youngadult novel, features Shailene Woodley as a lonely young woman who blossoms in her new romance, and aspires to a gentle, moony tone. Yet James Ponsoldt, director of The Spectacular Now, sculpted his dramatic effects with a scalpel; Josh Boone, who directed this movie, uses a chainsaw. An emotional climax arrives every 15 minutes or so, and every affecting moment is underscored with a soppy light-rock song. With Laura Dern, Mike Birbiglia, and Willem Dafoe as a reclusive novelist based on Thomas Pynchon. _Ben Sachs

Moon signs The moon is full this week, and yes, it’s the actual “Honey Moon.” If you’ve just gotten hitched, congratulations, and be aware that the clock has begun ticking for the relatives who are just itching to ask about your desire to start a family. Because Mercury is retrograde this week (through July 1), even the most benign communications could seem threatening, or terribly rude. So this is a fine week to be aware of others’ heightened senses (we are herd animals, after all), and not to let your own equilibrium start teetering in the wind. Also: a request. Every year, I write for the Llewellyn Herbal Almanac. I have some ideas — what would you think is interesting to read that’s herbal and astrological in nature? Email sally@moonsigns.net.

Sagittarius, Gemini, virgo, taurus, Libra, and Leo: make your moves early tomorrow, not today. pisces, Scorpio, cancer, capricorn, Aquarius, and Aries: acting “spacey” is safe, even if it feels out of character.

Waning moon in Aquarius. today and tomorrow is excellent for wild ideas, science fiction or fantasy. however, the standard “monday morning routine” will need some fresh air. or is that hot air? Beware of talking too much if you’re taurus, Scorpio, Libra, Sagittarius, virgo, and Leo (let others air grievance first). Aquarius, Libra, Gemini, pisces, Aries, and capricorn: explore options vigorously. 20

Waning moon in pisces. Artistic proclivities and “taking the long way” comes naturally. So does temporary amnesia, and a desire to buy shoes (!). capricorn, Aquarius, pisces, Aries, taurus, Scorpio and cancer could have their antenna finely-tuned to others’ motivations (however, just because you do, don’t think you can “fix” them). virgo, Gemini, Libra, Leo, and Sagittarius: keep your head down. 22

Waning moon in capricorn (moon voidof-course in 6:35 am until 5:27 pm when it moves into Aquarius). counting, structuring, or rearranging — today and tomorrow favors logical left-brain types, and the voc moon makes for creative finances. taurus, virgo, capricorn, Aquarius, pisces, Sagittarius, and Scorpio: steady as she goes. Stick to the plan. Libra, Aries, Gemini, Leo, and cancer: get your heart-rate up and don’t think “it is what it is.” 19

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 the11 moon moves into yours 12 13 the sun 14 sign opposite 15 16 (see below), expect to have difficulties dealing with the opposite sex, family, or authority figures; social or romantic activities will not 30be at their best. 32| When the 27 28 29 31 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 15 16 angles to planets. consider this a null time and try to avoid making or implementing decisions if you can. But it’s12great for13 brainstorming. | For Symboline dai’s sun14 15 16 32 sign31 horoscopes and advice column, visit our Web site at thephoenix.com.
