161 to go

Play ball; when ‘wireless’ meant ‘radio’; on the green Phillipe was on suicide watch when news broke that the New England Patriots had allowed Wes Welker to sign with the Denver Broncos. And when the Red Sox opened the season April 1 against the damn Yankees in New York, P. had his gun to his head once again. Countless preseason previews, including one in that Bible of the Sweaty Sciences, Sports Illustrated, predicted the BoSox will finish last in the American League East. So your superior correspondents were expecting the team to be down 11-0 after three innings. Well, it seems the Sox hadn’t read — or perhaps, weren’t capable of reading — all the dire predictions. And the team took home an 8-2 win. Starter Jon Lester looked sharp. So did the bullpen. And nearly the entire lineup contributed to the beatdown of the Yanks’ C.C. Sabathia, who is still a hell of a pitcher even if he looks like a walking bag of laundry. One down, 161 to go. And for now at least P. was left reaching for his Pernod instead of a pistol. Hope springs eternal.

HALL OF FAME UPDATES

The Rhode Island Radio Hall of Fame recently announced its latest inductees. Kudos and congrats to former Providence mayor and local radio fixture Buddy Cianci — the mighty Bud-I; John “Coach” Colletto; Bill Corsair; and Newport’s Bob Sullivan. But a special tip of the sombrero to the other two inductees: Mike “Dr. Metal” Gonsalves and Fred Grady. For Jorge (Rudy Cheeks), the induction of Dr. Metal is especially poignant, as Mike started out in professional radio as a producer for the Fox & Cheeks show on WHJY in the mid-’80s. As many of you know, Mike perished in the Station nightclub fire, but his memory lives on for regular listeners to the late-night “Metal Zone” show he once hosted. Fred Grady’s show ran into the wee small hours of the morning in the ’50s and ’60s, on the way right-hand side of the AM radio band. His WPAW show was largely responsible for turning generations of Vo Dilunduhs on to jazz; Jorge used to go to bed with his transistor radio under his pillow. It’s where he first heard Miles, Monk, Coltrane, and the Ellington band — a real education. Thank you, Professor Grady. Also being honored with the Hall of Fame’s Shepard Award is Barbara Smith, who started in the traffic department and continued to work in the business end of things for WPRO for an astounding 48 years. Congratulations to all. Speaking of halls of fame, we urge you to get your tickets ASAP to the Rhode Island Music Hall of Fame’s second annual induction ceremony and concert on April 28. Last year’s event sold out and this year’s will likely do the same. An afternoon concert will feature tributes to George M. Cohan, Bobby Hackett, Sissieretta Jones, Jimmie Crane, and a special performance by original members of country music legend Eddie Zack’s Hayloft Jamboree. Headlining the evening show will be inductees Paul Geremia, Steve Smith and the Nakeds, and the Cowsills.

BLACK AND WHITE

With the Masters golf tournament in Augusta, Georgia just around the corner, P&J are reminded by RJ Smith’s biography of Mr. James Brown, The One, that the Godfather of Soul also called Augusta home. Surely, the home of the Masters, Augusta National Golf Club, an historically racist and misogynist collection of old, selfimportant, wealthy, bigoted white fools,

THE CITY _by d er F

never offered the electrifying and worldfamous homeboy James an honorary membership. In fact, if these mint-julep-soaked crackers hadn’t been forced by the PGA to admit some token “nigrahs” (as they would doubtless call them) and women (provided they were rich and connected) in recent years, it would still be one of the most prestigious (and proudly) all-white men’s golf clubs in the United States. Now it has to

cater to at least a dozen or more minorities and members of the opposite sex, although you can bet that no one from the old guard is sitting at the tables of these untouchables to share drinks after a round. Brings to mind an old joke about Augusta: When Tiger Woods, already a celebrated and nationally known amateur champion, played in his first Masters, he arrived at the gates of Augusta National, but was halted by a security guard, who was well-versed in keeping dusky folks and dames out of the premises. “Excuse me, young man, but we can’t let you in here,” he told Woods. “There is a nice course down the road, about a three-wood away, where you can play.” “But I’m Tiger Woods,” the future Masters champion explained. “Oh, I’m sorry, son, I didn’t recognize you. In that case, the course is probably just a seven-iron away.” Rim shot with a bull’s-eye putter, please.

KUDOS AND CONGRATS . . .

. . . to Ocean State Action executive director Kate Brock, who has resigned her post to join Governor Chafee’s policy team. Go get ’em, Kate.

ART ALERT

This Saturday, April 6, from 5 to 7 pm, there’s an opening for an AS220 art show that P&J can heartily recommend. John Hunter Housley, Eric Fulford (of Empire Revue fame), John A. Castillo, and Uriah Zoegar will exhibit new work. The show is up through April 27.

HAIL AND FAREWELL

It looks like, after years of behind-thescenes lobbying from Phillipe and Jorge, the Providence Phoenix has finally dumped editor David Scharfenberg. Good riddance to bad rubbish, we say. We jest, of course — only to prevent us from openly weeping over the fact that our journalistic majordomo has chosen to take a new job as an online reporter at the renowned National Public Radio affiliate WBUR in Boston. P&J have no doubt that he will take Beantown by storm. As our readers might guess, dealing with P&J — trying to rein in a couple of wiseass miscreants and avoid libel and slander suits — is a job unto itself. Not only has David done that admirably, but he became one of the best reporters — political or otherwise — in Our Little Towne. He has broken numerous stories in his time on Chestnut Street and offered intelligent, thorough coverage of countless happenings overlooked by other media outlets. In the process, P&J and others affiliated with the Phoenix have been the beneficiaries of the respect and visibility his hard work and insight have brought to the paper. David will be greatly missed by P&J and doubtless by the Phoenix’s readers as well. Boston’s gain is Providence’s loss, but we don’t begrudge him his departure for a second. He deserves the new opportunity. ^

“Nobody’s really done a comprehensive accounting of [the anti-SOPA fight], which is pretty ridiculous.” _DAvID sEgAl

This Just In Hacking Politics: a guide Last year, the Internet briefly upended everything we know about American politics. It was January and a pair of bills designed to squelch online piracy of movies, music, and pharmaceuticals — known by the acronyms SOPA and PIPA — seemed poised for passage. Hollywood had put its considerable political muscle behind the legislation. And it enjoyed broad, bipartisan support. But Silicon Valley and Internet freedom activists feared the legislation was so blunt, so poorly written, that it would cripple the web’s open architecture and stifle innovation. And when big Internet outposts like Google and Wikipedia staged an Internet blackout and urged a public revolt, a long-building netroots movement exploded — smothering Washington with tweets, emails, and phone calls that killed the bills. Somewhere near the center of that movement was former Rhode Island State Representative David Segal, who co-founded advocacy group Demand Progress with the late Aaron Swartz after leaving Ocean State politics. Segal, along with Internet activists David Moon and Patrick Ruffini, has edited a new book on the uprising titled Hacking Politics: How Geeks, Progressives, the Tea Party, Gamers, Anarchists and Suits Teamed Up to Defeat SOPA and Save the Internet. At the heart of the book: essays by big names in the Internet freedom space, including Harvard law professor Lawrence Lessig, novelist Cory Doctorow, and former Congressman Ron Paul. There are also essays from a musician, the co-founder of Reddit, and Swartz, who committed suicide earlier this year amid charges that he’d illegally downloaded millions of academic articles with the intent to disseminate them for free on the Internet. I spoke with Segal this week about the forthcoming book, available for presale at hackingpolitics.com (in keeping with the editors’ Internet freedom ethic, readers can pay what they’d like for the e-book version). The interview is edited and condensed.

f

WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING TO DO WITH THIS BOOK? Nobody’s really done a com-

prehensive accounting of [the] effort, which is pretty ridiculous. I think it is safe to say that it is the single [biggest] narrowly directed activist effort — non-electoral. It’s not something like the civil rights movement as a whole. [But] to have 20 million people engage

around the passage or defeat of a piece of legislation I think is literally unprecedented, at least on such a narrow timeframe. Right after the blackout, there were a series of articles that looked at that on kind of a two-week horizon — what came before. But [the push to defeat the legislation] was at least an 18-month to two-year effort. And of course, that work was only achievable because of infrastructure that had been put in place over the course of the previous decade or two by activists and organizations. So it’s really this flourishing of this issue space that had been maturing for 10 years or 20 years — and represents this coming-of-age for the Internet public and politicization of Internet issues as Internet issues, not just as vehicle to facilitate contacts around other issues.

SO WHAT EMERGES FROM THIS COMPILATION YOU’VE PUT TOGETHER? WHAT WILL WE LEARN HERE THAT WE DON’T KNOW ALREADY? There’s still this dynamic

on Capitol Hill where people want to fit this into their pre-standing paradigms: the notion that this was Google vs. Hollywood. That just demeans the real organizing that groups like ours — which has never received a penny from Google — were doing to pull this together. Google didn’t intervene in a serious way until the very end of the battle. And it also demeans the work of millions of people who, of their own volition, chose to engage in this effort. And it doesn’t speak to the fact that there are now these structures that are more and more entrenched, on our side, that will facilitate this sort of work happening again in the future. It also speaks to what aspects of the fight are not replicable. While Google didn’t govern all of the activism, they and other platforms played an important role in it and one that they’re only going to be willing to play when it aligns with their self-interest. There was this notion in the immediate aftermath of SOPA that there was some switch that could just be pulled and you would be able to create this outpouring of concern from the Internet. So it speaks to the [extent] to which that’s not precisely the case and we need to calibrate our expectations and continue to work really hard and do that progressive organizing if we want to see such successes down the line.

_David Scharfenberg

Charlie hall drinks and dabbles The Industrial Trust Building in Providence looks like a hairspray can with a condom on top. This is what Charlie Hall — Rhode Island’s unofficial comedian laureate — is telling a room full of boisterous guests at Chester’s Restaurant in Harmony, Rhode Island. Each person is seated in front of an easel, a white canvas, a set of paintbrushes, a water cup for rinsing, and a paper-plate palette with multicolored dabs of acrylic paint. Hall is standing at the front of the room, wearing a Flintstonesprint smock and painting the city skyline on a canvas of his own. Providence is the Big City if you’re from Woonsocket, he says: “It’s like going to New York or Paris.” Local shtick is a cornerstone of “Drink and Dabble,” the learn-to-paint-while-you-imbibe event Hall has produced up to three nights per week around the state since October. “You don’t look like Cranstonites — your hair isn’t big enough,” he tells a group of women sitting at a table in the back of the room. “Where are you guys from? . . . Smithfield! So this is a big night out for you!” he says to another table a few minutes later. While he jokes, Hall — a RISD grad — takes the audience on a step-by-step guide to painting other skyline standouts: the former Hospital Trust Tower and the Textron building. At previous events he’s taught his charges how to paint WaterFire, The Towers in Narragansett, and their own pet lizards and chickens. “Dabble” started at a critical time for Hall, he says. Attendance was down for his sketch-comedy send-up of local politicians, the “Ocean State Follies,” as it neared its twentieth year. And his Massachusetts spinoff, “Mass Hysteria,” was attracting even smaller crowds. Hall was beginning to wonder how he was going to meet his mortgage payments. Then one night, he woke up on his couch around two in the morning and saw participants on a dating reality TV show attending something called a “Paint and Sip” event. “I said, ‘I could steal that idea,’” he says. In the following weeks, he bought smocks, canvases, and other sup-

plies for a group of 40 students and started calling restaurants. The Florentine Grille in North Providence took a chance, and the man who once opened for Jerry Seinfeld and Rosie O’Donnell had begun a new chapter in his career. “That’s my day now,” he says. “Getting up, planning how much paint I’m going to buy, what colors to buy, what painting I’m going to do.” Here at Chester’s, Hall is roaming the room to instruct, encourage, and lightly insult his guests. “OK, your trees got a little bit out of hand,” he tells one woman. Midway through the lesson, a member of the wait staff appears with a tray of pinkish, sloshing shot glasses — “Dabble Devils” — and Hall pauses for a trivia contest. “What is a primary color?” he asks. “How long did it take for Leonardo da Vinci to paint the Mona Lisa’s lips?” A shot goes to the first person to answer correctly. (There is no single winner when Hall asks, “Many feminists thought Georgia O’Keeffe’s giant flower paintings were actually veiled representations of what?” and the room erupts with “Vagina!”) When the city outlines are completed, Hall encourages his students to add a dash of “heightened” color to the paintings: purple, yellow, green, bright blue. Then it’s time for final details like the arched window in the former Fleet Center and the reflections in the Providence River. One intrepid participant paints a gondolier floating in the foreground. As the evening winds down, the women in the room — only two of the guests are men — snap photos with smartphones and fawn over each other’s work. Their results are remarkably varied; some buildings are square and squat, others are tilted and wobbly. Brightly psychedelic is the color scheme of choice. You may want to put the paintings face-up in the trunk of your car if they aren’t yet dry, Hall advises as guests file out. “Unless — of course — you’re from Johnston and there’s a body in the way.” “Drink and Dabble” takes place weekly at various restaurants around the state.

at brown, torture in waterColor Stroll down College Street from Brown University during the next few weeks and you’ll find Providence’s iconic spires and skyscrapers slightly obscured by a banner hanging from a streetlight outside Brown’s List Art Building. The banner reads “DANIEL HEYMAN, David Winton Bell Gallery” and features a watercolor portrait of a man with his eyes closed. On the corresponding painting hanging in List’s lobby, the man’s head and shoulders are surrounded by hastily scrawled text. “THEY TOOK ME TO ABU GHRAIB,” one section reads. “FIRST THEY GOT ME NAKED AND CHAINED ME TO THE CELL. I WAS TIED IN THIS WAY, FOR 6 MONTHS. IT WAS WINTER AND COLD AND THEY PUT A FAN ON AND SPRAYED ME WITH WATER. WHEN THEY CAME TO INTERROGATE ME THEY BROUGHT THE DOGS. SOMETIMES I WAS CHAINED ON THE GROUND. EVEN WHEN I HAD MY MEAL, MY HANDS WERE CUFFED IN FRONT.” “AFTER EACH INTERROGATION,” the

anything about anybody or told much, but he was a guy that I was told had a very arduous history of being tortured. “Expect a lot,” [they said.] So when I unfolded my book that morning — I was working on an accordion book — I opened it up to twice the amount of pages that I usually did. So I started painting him and I started taking notes. And he starts talking about his interrogation. When he started to tell us, he broke down and started to cry and left the room. We had no idea where he was; he didn’t come back to the hotel for about five hours. When he came back he agreed to continue his testimony and I started a new painting. That’s the painting in the poster. He never really looked up during that entire interview.

THEY THREW ME PASSED OUT IN MY ROOM.” On the bottom corner of the page: “RELEASED MAY 2006. 30 MONTHS. THEY GAVE ME 20 DOLLARS.” The man is among the 50 Iraqis whom Heyman — a Guggenheim Fellow and critic in RISD’s printmaking department — heard testify before human rights attorneys in Jordan and Turkey between 2005 and 2008. The interviews were for a lawsuit against American contractors hired to interrogate Iraqis. As the men described their ordeals, Heyman painted their portraits and wrote excerpts from their testimony in swirls of words beside the images. These portraits — included in the exhibit “I am Sorry It is Difficult to Start” at List until May 26 — serve as a sort of companion piece to the recent “Costs of War” report out of Brown’s Watson Institute for International Studies: a by-the-numbers compendium of the blood and treasure expended in the Iraq War. The costs on display in Heyman’s work are less quantifiable, but no less shattering. Visitors who enter the building are met by the artist’s imposing, etching-on-plywood mural, “When The Photographers are Blinded, Eagles’ Wings are Clipped,” which Heyman created when he returned stateside. It features maimed and contorted bodies; a blindfolded photographer taking aim at his next shot; and eagles with deformed genitalia clutching rifles in their talons. I caught up with Heyman over the phone from Pennsylvania, where he had just attended a symposium on the Iraq War at Haverford College. The interview has been edited and condensed.

As an American society we paid for this war, propagated this war, we didn’t protest this war (some people did, but not particularly effectively). In general, the war was extremely supported by Democrats as well as Republicans. And these results of the war should be known. And you don’t just know things with your brain, you know them with your body. It was a struggle for these people to live through it and it was a struggle for them to tell me. And so it shouldn’t be given to you in an easy way. It should be given to you in a way that makes you participate.

YOU MENTION PICASSO’S LEGENDARY MURAL “GUERNICA” ON YOUR WEBSITE, AND AFTER SEEING THE SCALE AND SUBJECT OF THIS PIECE, I WAS REMINDED OF THAT WORK. IS THIS A KIND OF AMERICAN “GUERNICA” FOR THE IRAQ WAR? I love “Guernica” and I adore Picasso

and I always have. Picasso had this way of working on different aspects of his work in kind of bits and pieces. He would work out his ideas in smaller works and then from time to time, he would produce a summation picture, a kind of old-style masterpiece, something that [said]: “OK, now I’ve worked out a little bit about this new thing, Cubism, and now I’m going to make ‘Les Demoiselles D’Avignon.’ I’m gonna pull it all together.” And I’ve always thought of that as a goal of my own: from, time to time, [to] sum it all up, bring it together and make a major statement. But “Guernica” is made by a Spaniard about his own country being attacked. And in that sense, I could never do that, unless I was working with 9/11 imagery or something. I’m a part of the country of the aggressor. The Bell Gallery will host an opening reception for “I am Sorry It is Difficult to Start” on Friday, April 5 at 5:30 pm. _Philip Eil

Brown Bird is not a folk Band

The Warren duo crank iT up and geT cerebral on Fits oF Reason _by ch r is co n Ti

Brown Bird’s David Lamb and MorganEve Swain challenge themselves (and anyone who still insists on calling them a folk band) on their stunning new album, Fits of Reason (via local label Supply & Demand). The devil still dances all over Lamb’s lyrics, though this time around he’s mingling with modernday Western thinkers and 18th-century authors whose views and writings have clearly inspired his intellectual wordplay. The foot-stomping/clip-clopping structures and Swain’s cello and fiddle remain steeped in American roots, bluegrass, and jazz, and the duo’s penchant for incorporating Middle Eastern and European rhythms is fully intact. But it’s the addition of electric guitar and bass that lends yet another layer to Brown Bird’s distinctive sound. Brown Bird’s nationwide tour kicked off this week, and the duo will stop by the Met for a hometown throwdown on Friday. Here’s their backstory: Lamb began writing and recording under the name Brown Bird in 2003 while living in Seattle. The moniker was inspired by his dog at the time, a brown Shar-Pei named Bird. “I just figured the name was simple and ambiguous. I didn’t want it to imply any particular genre, but rather left wide open for interpretation” Lamb said when we spoke over the phone earlier this week, just before heading for the first show in Thomaston, Maine. He released Bottom of the Sea in 2008 and met Swain (born and raised in Newtown, CT) and local guitarist Mike Samos here while on a solo tour and asked them to join him; The Devil Dancing (2009) was their first team effort (Jeremy and Jerusha Robinson also appear on that disc). The current formation is a full-time duo, with occasional guests like Swain’s brother, violinist Spencer (of Zox fame). “Having just the two of us in the band is both limiting and freeing at the same time,” Swain told me. “We can’t layer a lot of different things if the two of us can’t reproduce it live.” Lamb and Swain rolled the dice and left their full-time jobs (at a shipyard and coffee shop, respectively) in 2011 right before the release of Salt for Salt. Momentum had been building steadily: they accepted an invite to support local friends the Low Anthem on a European tour in 2010, did a string of West Coast dates with the CA trio the Devil Makes Three, and made a successful appearance at the 2011 Newport Folk Festival (which led to a well-received main stage slot in ’12). Salt for Salt was the duo’s breakout album; national publications such as Paste, Magnet, and Under the Radar took notice, and NPR deemed it one of the best folk albums of 2011 — though Swain will be the first to inform/remind us that “Brown Bird is not a folk band.” That disclaimer is reinforced by Fits of Reason’s adventurous sonic palette; Lamb and Swain stated in separate phone interviews that they strive for innovation during the album’s writing and recording process. “We are always trying to push ourselves beyond our own abilities, to

ing Lamb’s exhausted state of mind: “I’ve worked my fingers to the bone, not a pretty little penny have I got to show/I ain’t looking for much, just a little bit of rest by the side of the road.” But Fits of Reason leads with loftier concerns on “Seven Hells”: “The seventh hell inside impales and divides us/And scatters our skin with the seed/Of our deeds devoured, of other worlds showered/As our demon celestials bleed.” Skim through the lyrics on any Brown Bird album and it should come as no surprise to learn that Lamb was the son of a minister; he left his home and the Catholic Church behind following high school. “My dad’s background has been ingrained in me, but I also never stropped seeking out my own beliefs and exploring different ideologies,” Lamb told me. And that makes a song like “Barren Lakes” that much more intriguing, when Lamb sings, “We’ll bathe in the blood of salvation’s name/fast and feast upon its flesh and prey.”

The duo self-produced the new album at Machines With Magnets in Pawtucket; Lamb praised Keith Souza and his staff: “Keith and those guys are the best kind of engineers, in that they don’t interfere with the creative process, but they will push you to the limit in order to get the very best take possible.”

HiTTing THe books

Leaving your day job behind in favor of a musical career obviously has its benefits, including one advantage Lamb has applied to his craft-— reading. And lots of it, particularly during those long drives between shows. The Fits of Reason press notes cites lyrical influences ranging from philosophers such as Plato and Omar Khayyam to modern-day British-American author Christopher Hitchens. “I really appreciate the luxury of having more time to read now,” Lamb said. “When I would come home from working at the shipyard, I wasn’t really reading because I was always exhausted.” MorganEve cited the literary presence in the new work: “[David] was totally

immersed in reading different philosophies and religious teachings,” she said. “It dominated all of our conversations, and he would incorporate some of that into the lyrics, so it was sort of all-encompassing.” Lamb and Swain share an apartment in Warren, which includes a small “music room” where the songs are usually fleshed out. Lamb’s consumption of the written word is trumped only by his consumption of coffee while working from home, while Swain prefers the nighttime setting accompanied by a glass or two of whiskey. The aforementioned Fits of Reason press release opens with a quote from 18th-century author Thomas Paine (who penned Common Sense in 1776), which led to the album title: “Reason obeys itself; and ignorance submits to whatever is dictated to it.” The notes state that Paine directly inspired the “flurry of cerebral themes” and that the album “grapples with the human condition in a smooth but unapologetic departure from the band’s previous release.” The remarkably different approach is immediately apparent. Salt for Salt opens with “Fingers To the Bone,” clearly depict-

Both Swain and Lamb noted the heavier music they were listening to while recording Fits of Reason, from Middle Eastern psych-rock bands of the ’60s and ’70s to Metallica and Mastodon, and Lamb and I enthusiastically praised the first Queens of the Stone Age album as one of the greatest rock records of the last 20 years. That led me to referencing Fits of Reason as perhaps Brown Bird’s “Desert Sessions,” which got a hearty chuckle from Lamb, while Swain declared, “I don’t know if I would call this our ‘loud’ record, because the next one may be louder!” Lamb’s six-string keeps pace with the galloping tambourine on “Seven Hells,” and his snake-charmer riff on “Nine Eyes” won’t leave my head. The duo get rocking on the instrumental “Iblis” (an Islamic reference to the devil), while “Hitchens” opens up with Swain’s jazzy bass line before Lamb comes in with a subtly ominous riff. MorganEve shines on “Bow For Blade,” singing like the Andrews Sisters while delivering the lines, “Toil cheek to cheek and bow for blade/Braced in flame and souls to keep/desire won’t let the monster sleep/We burn bright and broil in our crusade.” Swain’s voice floats perfectly alongside Lamb’s on the hellbent waltz of “Wayward Daughter” as well as the hypnotic closing track “Caves.” The Fits of Reason disc will be available at the show (a vinyl release is forthcoming) and is available for download at iTunes and brownbird.bandcamp.com. Get ready to feed off the energy Brown Bird bring to the stage, with Swain thumping away and Lamb in constant motion. Their live show is quickly becoming the stuff of legend. The duo’s last two gigs at the Met were sold out and downright bananas, so get there early. ^

Corey Grayhorse’s ‘artifiCial MeMories’ at Craftland _By GreG Co o K

SalTy JoHnSon Band

“It’s like getting to run away into a photograph,”

Corey Grayhorse tells me of her photos. “If I built it I f could go there.”

The photos exhibited in “Artificial Memories” at Craftland (235 Westminster St, Providence, through April 6) depict amazing wonderlands of Rainbow Brite colors, vivid patterns, fashion and masks, cute kids, svelte ladies, and the occasional nightmare wolf. In her pictures, a clown and kids dash across a snowy field or a lady and a giant bunny eat breakfast in bed. A kid marauds around a room on a hobbyhorse as the babysitter screams. A crowned Madonna is surrounded by a court that seems part masked lucha libre wrestlers, part skull-faced calaveras from the Day of the Dead. Greenand bronze-haired ladies push each other around a laundry mat in carts. A group of wigged characters line up alongside a striped carnival tent. A veiled woman holds a child wearing a Mickey Mouse mask in her lap, like some bizarre Madonna and child scene. “It’s sexual. It’s fashion. It’s cartoon. It’s fairy tale. It’s happy. It’s sad. It’s scary,” the 32-year-old Cranston resident says. “It didn’t really hit me that I wanted to shoot this way until about six years ago,” Grayhorse explains. “I just kind of hit this wall in my life where I was really bored with this reality. I was a bit sad” from being away from where she grew up. “I was having all these wonderful dreams. And I had a bad breakup with a friend . . . And I just wanted to escape from a lot of shit in life that really weighs me down.” She grew up in Venice, California, and studied for three years at a community college in Santa Monica, where she began photographing in color, but left before graduating, and moved to Providence in 2001. Her living comes mainly from commercial photography — portraits, fashion, lifestyle, products, some editorial, and boudoir photography for Providence Pinup. “It’s like a Sears [portrait] session, but not,” Grayhorse notes. In the coming months, she’s scheduled to exhibit at the RISD Museum, Candita Clayton Studio in Pawtucket, and DNJ Gallery in Los Angeles. And this week, she’s a new contributor to the Phoenix.

ODD OFFSPRING detail from Mother of Mickey. year-old daughter Katia) reading in a white, high-backed chair in a neat living room recently made the front page of Reddit — you know, “the front page of the internet.” “What I’m trying to get the viewer to see is when things seem scary they’re not because there’s a softer side to them, a funner side to them,” Grayhorse says. “I think the monsters are looking for that happy place . . . The darkness and the monsters are coming into place because they need that.” She stages her scenes at her home, friends’ homes, the Dirt Palace in Olneyville, a local bodega with a great fruit display, and other businesses. She imagines a world that is more bright and spectacular, where the sensations are more powerful, where the monsters are more obvious. For a while, she primarily shot with lots of studio lighting, but lately she’s been enjoying staging her oddities outdoors, in the natural light of the real world. “My models are usually friends, or they don’t start off as friends, but they become friends by the end of shooting,” Grayhorse says. Her 10-year-old daughter Cailee has frequently stolen the show. She also uses some pro models, but says she favors non-professionals. “I don’t want it to come off looking like a fashion shoot,” Grayhorse says. “That just looks a little more contrived or posed. It doesn’t end up looking like an artificial memory. I like using real people because it looks like it’s actually them . . . People that already are characters and aren’t afraid to let their inhibitions go.” ^

WBRU PRESENTS

It’s inarguable that to some extent racism in America is a disease that the civil rights era did not completely inoculate this country against. The argument is about exactly what that extent has been, and David Mamet’s provocative play Race explores that matter with fulminating energy and some insight. Being unleashed by the Ocean State Theatre Company (through April 14), the production is a qualified success that keeps us riveted from start to finish. Two lawyers are presented with a case that would be dangerous to lose: a wealthy white man has been accused by a black woman of rape. The accused, Charles Strickland (Sean McGuirk), has come to them because one lawyer is white, Jack Lawson (Christopher Swan), and the other is black, Henry Brown (Damron Russel Armstrong). As a bonus for jury sympathy, their Ivy League law clerk Susan (Nakeisha Daniel) also is black. The office we are in, location unspecified, has enough class to help clients feel they are in competent hands (thanks to scenic designer Kimberly V. Powers). Good art on the walls, bottles of Fuji water on hand to rehydrate anybody sweating in nervous guilt. The lawyers don’t want to take the case, since in a manner of speaking they can’t win even if they do win. Get Strickland off and the public perception will be that once again some wealthy white guy trampled the rights of some poor black person. Allow him to be convicted and, well, that just isn’t allowed for a law firm in such a prominent case. Reluctantly, because of an error by their clerk, they have to represent him. Strickland very much wants them to believe he’s not guilty. When he declares that he is innocent, Lawson breaks the bad news to him: “Nobody fucking cares.” He tells Strickland that all that matters is his vindication. Lawson goes on about not just the elusiveness of truth but the unlikeliness of ever determining it. “There are no facts of the case,” he says. “There are two fictions. Which the opposing teams each seek to impress upon the jury.” The law, in his professional opinion, is “an alley fight.” He’s practical as well as cynical, saying,

f

“Belief, sir, hamstrings the advocate, who is then anchored to the facts.” Lawson’s black partner, Henry Brown, gets to open the play with a litany of stereotypical racial/racist truisms, to Strickland: “You want to tell me about black folks? I’ll help you: O.J. was guilty. Rodney King was in the wrong place, but the police have the right to use force. Malcolm X was noble when he renounced violence. Prior to that he was misguided. Dr. King was, of course, a saint.” That’s worth quoting at length because it echoes Mamet’s reductionistic attitude toward race and racism presented here. If you tell me I’m confusing his attitude with that of his characters, I’ll point out that the conventional wisdom that racial harmony is possible through mutual tolerance and understanding gets no expression here except to dismiss it as naïve. This play is absorbing and gives us plenty of contentions to chew on, but it’s ultimately cynical: empty calories. After all, there’s no interesting play in the process of racial accord. To paraphrase Tolstoy, all happy families are boring. So the playwright packs the house with many engaging but ultimately empty arguments, such as that, as Lawson contends, “Jews deal with guilt. Blacks deal with shame.” I think that if I were a self-respecting black person, I’d consider my part of that statement to be about as racist as they get in polite society. Nevertheless, the story carries us along with its dips and turns. Strickland’s fate hinges on a red sequined dress. A postcard to an old college roommate pops up, to his embarrassment. Susan’s loyalty comes into question. As far as the performances go, McGuirk maintains an understandable distraction as the client, Daniel projects dignified intelligence as the law clerk, and Swan goes through fascinating permutations of concern as his case changes. Unfortunately, Armstrong is allowed by director Amiee Turner to woefully overact, though he does calm down to a more plausible tone toward the end. Making Brown bombastic is a legitimate choice, but he doesn’t manage to make it seem natural. ^

_BY J ohnette Rod R igu ez Festival Ballet Providence’s Up Close On Hope can be counted on to present new works and to spotlight new company members. The spring program, which is at Festival’s Black Box Theatre April 5, 6, 12, and 13, offers 10 pieces, six of them shown for the first time, and three by current company members, including Mihailo “Misha” Djuric, FBP’s artistic director. Other reliable factors for UCOH are: a range of music that encompasses classical, contemporary, and everything in between; at least one (in this case two) classic pas de deux which gives dancers a chance to showcase their dancing chops; and a wide variety of narrative and abstract dances. The narrative pieces this time around were completely captivating and engaging, though there were certainly breathtaking moments in each of the dances — and the line between narrative and abstract can often be difficult to discern. But the storytelling in New TECHNICAL PRECISION alberto and Whitney York choreographer John Drake’s perform “the unexpected.” “The First Thirty Years,” set to Eric Clapton’s “Mean Ole World,” danced with charm and skill by Louisa however, danced beautifully by Jennifer Chapman, was unmistakable.

capsule reviews XXW ADMISSION | 2013 | Tina Fey stars as a Princeton admissions screener who begins to reconsider her school’s elitism when she meets a promising young applicant who may be the son she gave away for adoption; Paul Rudd provides romantic interest as the boy’s teacher at a progressive school. This is certainly an interesting idea, though the movie is badly handicapped by Fey, who must venture beyond her usual snippiness into scenes of genuine poignancy and proves unequal to the task. Rudd, who’s always functioned best as a straight man (Role Models, I Love You, Man), has no way of bailing her out, though the more satirical scenes involving her Princeton colleagues (among them Gloria Reuben and Wallace Shawn) go off without a hitch. Paul Weitz (Being Flynn) directed; with Michael Sheen and Lily Tomlin. | 117m | XXX THE CALL | 2013 | Brad

Anderson, the skilled genre stylist behind the cult horror favorites Session 9 (2001) and Vanishing on 7th Street (2010), directed this thriller in which a highly proficient 911 operator (Halle Berry) takes a call from a teenager (Abigail Breslin) who’s been abducted by a serial killer (Michael Eklund). The film lacks the thematic nuance of Anderson’s best work, but it’s

expertly paced and features some sophisticated editing, which helps alleviate the corniness of the plot. Berry is all steely reserve as the operator and easily outshines the rest of the cast, which includes Michael Imperioli and Morris Chestnut. | 95m |

XXW HAPPY PEOPLE: A YEAR

IN THE TAIGA | 2010 | What Robert Flaherty did with title cards in his silent Nanook of the North, Werner Herzog manages with declamatory voiceover in Happy People: romanticization of the austere, self-reliant lives of hunters and trappers in the icebound north. Herzog does it from the warmth and comfort of an editing suite, where he cut down four hours of a Russian-made anthropological documentary by Dmitry Vasyukov and added his own colorful but sometimes intrusive Herzogian commentary. As always, Herzog is turned-on by macho-men in the wilderness, so it makes sense that he falls hard for the Russians who fish and trap sable in the deepest, most cut-off part of Siberia. They are fun to watch as they shape skis out of tree trunks, hang out with their dogs. Happy people? Perhaps. But there definitely are unhappy people: the native Siberians, who have lost their way with Russian-supplied vodka. | Russian | 90m | XX OLYMPUS HAS FALLEN | 2013 | North Korean terrorists storm the

XXXX XXX XX X Z

White House and take the President hostage. This ludicrous actioner strives to be as loud, violent, and patriotic as possible; director Antoine Fuqua (Training Day) pulls out all the stops, openly evoking 9/11 and playing on the irrational fears of Tea Partiers and neoconservatives everywhere. Gerard Butler stars as a former Secret Service agent, his reputation tarnished by a tragic accident, who takes the situation in hand, his snappy one-liners and iron resolve fitting right in with the implausible premise. With Aaron Eckhart and Morgan Freeman. | 120m |

XX SPRING BREAKERS | 2013 |

Indie veteran Harmony Korine learns a valuable lesson: why hang around with disconsolate small-town weirdos (Gummo, Julien Donkey-Boy) when you can film young women shaking their bare breasts? This lively exploitation flick follows four college cuties (Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Benson, and Rachel Korine, the filmmaker’s wife) as they pull off a masked hold-up of a diner and, cash in hand, go roaring off to Florida for the title bacchanal; upon their arrival they get mixed up with drug dealer James Franco (wearing cornrows and grills and channeling Eric Roberts). Korine gestures toward social criticism, but essentially this is just an hour and a half of bongs, beers, tits, and ass, thinly dressed as Natural Born Killers. | 92m |

FShort Takes movie reviewS in brieF XXX

GINGER & ROSA

90 minUteS | cAble cAr Sally Potter likes to mess around with form and narrative. Her Orlando (1992) adapted the Virginia Woolf novel, with Tilda Swinton as the Elizabethan cavalier of the title who lives for centuries and changes genders along the way. Her last two films, Yes (2004) and Rage (2009), were, respectively, written in iambic pentameter and shot on a cell phone. With her latest, though, she drops the fancy stuff and confronts her themes head-on. In part autobiographical, this may be her most conventional film, and it is also her most powerful and challenging. It’s so conventional, in fact, that it can be compared to other films. It resembles An Education (2009), and especially Sandra Goldbacher’s exceptional bildungsroman about two best friends growing up, Me Without You (2001). Unlike the latter, however, Potter’s film doesn’t span decades, but focuses on one crucial period in the relationship between the title pair of pals. In the sooty, pre-British Invasion London of 1962, Ginger (Elle Fanning) and Rosa (Alice Englert) have gotten a head start on the counterculture to come. Ginger’s father, Roland (Alessandro Nivola), is a pacifist and a professor, and the family’s best friends include a hip gay couple — Mark One (Timothy Spall) and Mark Two (Oliver Platt) — and Bella (Annette Bening), a prickly feminist poet. Rosa’s alternative lifestyle, however, comes more from necessity than choice; her single mother has to work, leaving Rosa free to smoke, kiss boys, and ponder eternal love. And Ginger’s circumstances don’t bear close scrutiny. Her mother, once a painter, now cooks and cleans and tolerates not just Roland’s infidelities with students, but his pseudo-philosophical self-justifications as well. Meanwhile, Doomsday approaches. The Cuban Missile Crisis overshadows these petty

squabbles, at least for Ginger. Encouraged by her bemused father, and more earnestly by “the Marks” and Bella, she throws herself into political activism, marching in peace rallies and writing poems about the Bomb. But Rosa has drifted to other interests, which threaten catastrophe closer to home; as the world teeters on the brink, so too does the pair’s friendship. It sounds schematic, but Potter’s assured eye (her style evokes the British New Wave of the ’60s) and the masterful performances (Fanning, in particular, steals every scene she’s in) keep the film honest. Toward the end it tends more to a whimper than a bang (Ginger reads The Waste Land at bedtime), but few other films have depicted so acutely the crushing disillusionment and infinite hope of growing up. _Peter Keough

THE GATEKEEPERS

hebrew + engliSh | 97 minUteS | Avon Inspired by The Fog of War, in which Errol Morris got Robert McNamara to talk candidly about his policy role in Vietnam, filmmaker Dror Moreh contacted past heads of the Shin Bet, Israel’s internal security force, asking if they’d speak on camera about their controversial work. Perhaps because Moreh had made a fair-minded documentary on Ariel Sharon, six “gatekeepers” of the Shin Bet agreed to his proposition, and the result is a remarkable behind-the-scenes peek at how Israel’s inhouse CIA/FBI has operated, both honorably and questionably, from the Six-Day War until now. Those interviewed are all highly intelligent, strikingly articulate, and, for the most part, principled individuals. And almost all concede to dirty work of which they are not proud, in dealing too harshly at times with militant Palestinians and in letting Israeli ultra-rightists get away with obvious crimes. Great cinema journalism, The Gatekeepers was the National Society of Film Critics’ winner for Best Documentary of 2012. _Gerald Peary

This week, the moon will be waning on the weekend. This 26 21 22 23 24 25 could provide encouragement and impetus for those who have put off spring chores.

april 6 28 29 30 Waning moon in pisces. “next April31when 32 the poplar leaves are about the size of a squirrel’s ear, we’ll plant corn when the signs are in the feet; otherwise the corn will just shank and hang down,” as charles Frazier wrote in Cold Mountain. pisces rules the feet, so this is a superb day for 14 9 10 11 12 13 shoe-shopping. the vibe is all about finishing, particularly for capricorn, Aquarius, pisces, Aries, taurus, cancer, Scorpio, libra, 25 26 27 28 29 30 and leo. virgo, Gemini, and Sagittarius: avoid depress you.15 1215folks who 1316 14 16 27

april 7 2932 30 31 32 Waning moon in pisces. Another excellent day for shoe-shopping or pedicures; also working with photographs or visiting those who are incarcerated (by choice or by law). capricorn, Aquarius, Aries, libra, leo, Aries, Scorpio, and cancer will be in a “traditional” mode when it comes to spending time with others. virgo, Gemini, and Sagittarius need to look beneath the surface, where the13truth resides. 14 15 16 2831

MoNday

april 8 30 31 32 Waning moon in pisces, moon void-ofcourse 12:10 am until 3:02 pm when it 32 moves into Aries. From now through Wednesday or thursday, avoid initiated projects or coming up with “the cool new thing.” Folks are more receptive later in the week, except for very conservative pisces, cancer, taurus, virgo, capricorn, and Scorpio folks. Aries, leo, Sagittarius, libra, Gemini, and Aquarius: it’s a “stop and go” day. don’t force 14 matters 15 — more 16 is revealed later. 29

april 5 26 27 28 29 30 31 Waning moon in Aquarius. moon voidof-course 1:22 am until 9 am Saturday. Schemes and dreams are favored, and new people are more attractive than long-time acquaintances. romance is an “intellectual” attraction, versus physical. But most folks are too distracted. capricorn, Aquarius, Aries, libra, Gemini, Aries, Sagittarius, virgo, 8 9 10 11 12 13 cancer: there are more options than you tuesday think. leo, taurus, Scorpio: You may think april 9 you’re being practical or diplomatic, but 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 dark of the31moon in32 Aries. this day before others may resent it if you tell them what the new moon is accident-prone for some to do.

(libra, pisces, cancer, and capricorn). For others, the decision made today will be reversed later in the week. however, if you need an opportunity to burrow deep into your own head (e.g., motivations, appetites, bad habits and behavioral quirks), today is fertile. As much as leo, Sagittarius, Gemini, Aquarius, taurus, virgo, Aries want to get moving — hold back. 15 16

WedNesday

april 10 31 new moon32in Aries. Fresh starts for all. Aries moons bring out the initiative in everyone, and Aries also rules the head. So, a fine day to get a new spring bonnet. Speaking out is exactly what Aquarius, pisces, Aries, taurus, Gemini, virgo, leo, Scorpio, Sagittarius should do, no matter how much “trouble” you think this is. reticence should be the course of action for capricorn, cancer, and libra. You folks could “take a stand” with a loved one, also. i don’t advise this.

Moon KeyS

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.
