Phillipe + Jorge’s Cool, Cool World

The independenT man Another eulogy for linc; the return of ut; the culpo cAper Governor Linc Chafee’s deci-

sion not to run for another f term upset P&J last week, if only

for the fact that he didn’t consult us so his announcement wouldn’t come after our publishing deadline. Selfish bastard. Local pundits are now having a field day trying to decide which presumptive Democratic gubernatorial candidate — Providence Mayor Angel Taveras or Little Rhody’s General Treasurer Gina Raimondo — will be helped the most by Chafee pulling out of the 2014 race. And let’s not be coy, Angel and Gina, we know that you’re running just from hearing the screams of joy echoing from your offices the minute Linc officially bowed out. But Chafee’s decision shouldn’t have really surprised anyone. He has always been his own man, and a good man at that. Or at least one with the cojones to stand by his principles, a rarity in Vo Dilun politics. P&J don’t and didn’t always agree with all of his policies or decisions. And he could at times be very brass-necked about them, even in the face of huge opposition. (Can you say, “Proposing an increased sales tax and an expanded list of items that he would impose it on,” boys and girls? Oh, that’s right. We don’t have fiscal crisis) But knowing Linc for years, you could always be sure of one thing: the guv was not going to be swayed by the type of piddling, groveling, and/or bullying on which The Biggest Little’s decisionmakers have a patent. That Linc would hold values first was seen when he refused, as a Republican, to vote for professional moron Dubya Bush for president in 2004. His distaste for the GOP — and the entire system in DC — was also boldly presented at a speech he gave at URI (which, it should be noted, The Washington Post covered, while The Urinal did not) while serving as a US Senator, in which he said he would rather see nothing done legislatively in Congress than have it continue to be a no-winners bloodbath between the two ruling parties that completely ignored what the people of this country wanted or needed. His disdain for the corrupt Beltway mentality that has driven the country into chaos and financial hardship for the middle class was exemplary, if ignored. So P&J aren’t surprised to see him walk away from the personal attacks by mindless talk show hosts and callers who know as much about integrity, fairness,

and doing the right thing as they do about quantum physics. He deserves much better than that lot of raving nutters, never mind the manipulators who run the General Assembly to no one’s benefit. P&J have always thought that one of the best things that could be said about a person was that he or she was a “stand-up guy.” Linc Chafee is a stand-up guy.

Typo of The Week

P&J think the Providence Business News’ “Morning Call” e-blast hit it right on the head on September 10 with their description of the rapidly-expanding Twin River Casino: “Twin River Casino has won state lottery approval to increase the number of live table games at the one-time greyhound racetrack that morphed in June from a sprawling electronic slot-parlor into full blow casino.” Yes, it is a great place to blow your dough. (We’ll let you come up with your own lines about “full blow,” and get your minds out of the gutter, please.) Take that, Lost Wages.

parTy girl

Phillipe is quite proud of his sister, Sally Young, a book editor and musician in London who now does jazz lounge acts with her band at sites like the noted Claridge’s Hotel. But she seems to be getting more exposure for her past band, Ut, an all-girl trio who earned their spurs in New York City with cutting-edge avant-garde rock in the 1970s and 1980s. Their work

The ciTy _By D ER F

was once described in Melody Maker as “Patti Smith meets the Ford Motor Company.” Subtle it was not, as you may have ascertained. Ut has been championed by Providence music writer Andrea Feldman for years, and she informs P&J that the band, which she helped bring to La Prov and NYC a few years back for a reunion tour, has been summoned to do another Lazarus trick at the famed All Tomorrow’s Parties “End of An Era Part II” festival in November in Camber Sands in the UK. (In this case, P&J don’t expect you to be there or be square.) What P&J found most amusing in the ATP’s promo materials were the other bands that’ll be playing along with Ut. We definitely have to get American bands (who can actually play music) to come up with better names than Kings of Leon and Foster the People. To wit: • The Dismemberment Plan • Comets On Fire • Girls Against Boys • Dirty Beaches • Hookworms • Built to Spill Ah, but we’re really just bragging about a kid sister.

local crime reporT

A couple of decades ago, Phillipe (Chip Young) used to live on Albert Avenue in the Edgewood section of Cranston. If this name rings a bell, then perhaps you were present at Cranston City Hall this past Saturday when, to celebrate the pride of Cranston — Miss Universe Olivia Culpo — Mayor Allan Fung

officially re-christened Albert Avenue Olivia Culpo Way. Much as he’d like to, Phillipe can claim no credit for Ms. Culpo’s success, as he had already cleaned out his locker and broken camp from Albert Ave. before she was born. But both P&J love the neighborhood. (Jorge lived in Edgewood for about a decade, starting in 2000 and still likes to stop by JP Spoonem’s on Broad Street for breakfast.) But excitement over Cranston’s newest-named thoroughfare didn’t last long. Apparently some person or persons decided to remove the Olivia Culpo Way signs during the evening hours before Tuesday morning, September 10. This has got to rank way up there on the “stupid criminal acts” scale. Could the scofflaw responsible be a foe of Nick Jonas, the teen idol reportedly dating Ms. Culpo? Or perhaps it’s someone nursing a crush on Miss Universe? Or maybe a disgruntled Edgewood resident upset about the name change from Albert Avenue? Who the hell knows. Life is crazy enough all over the world without having Edgewood become the latest scene for terminal stupidity.

So long, pop

If you’ve been involved in the Vo Dilun music or theater communities, you probably knew “Pop,” Chris Popoloski, who was a sound engineer at the Providence Performing Arts Center and a member of IATSE Local #23 and 481. He also worked at

the Living Room in Providence and was one of the hardest-working, most loyal, and enthusiastic friends you could have. P&J and many people in our tightly-knit arts community were deeply shocked and saddened to find out last Friday that Pop had suffered a sudden heart attack and passed away. He was only 45 years old. He was a talented photographer and a teller of true tales. On occasion, Pop would jump on stage and share a song. He was magnificent. Jorge (Rudy Cheeks) in particular will miss Pop. When the Young Adults put on a series of shows at the Met in 2011, Pop just appeared and said, “What do you need?” He immediately took charge of the kind of stage matters that only a seasoned pro would know about and was there throughout the weekend to make sure nothing went wrong. He immediately became our “get ’er done” guy. There was no one quite like Pop and his many friends and fans should know that there will be calling hours for him on Friday 4-7 pm at the A. Tarro & Sons Funeral Home, 425 Broadway, Providence. A celebration of his extraordinary life will be held Saturday 2-6 pm at Roots Cultural Center in downtown Providence. In lieu of flowers, contributions in his memory may be made to RI Jobs with Justice. Rest in peace, Pop. You were deeply loved. ^

This Just In

“It’s like a funeral; everyone speaks well of the departed.”

_edward fitzpatrick

in Memoriam

Lincoln Chafee’s political eulogy Rhode Island’s 74th Governor Lincoln Davenport Chafee called a press conference on Wednesday, September 4 at 2 pm. The details were mysterious; the location — in front of the state Department of Motor Vehicles, in Cranston — offered few clues. Neither did the first three minutes of his remarks, which meandered from touting progress regarding RIPTA, the state’s school funding formula, RI’s natural disaster preparedness, pension negotiations, and 38 Studios litigation; to his administration’s work on distressed communities like Providence, Central Falls, and Pawtucket; to his upcoming meeting with New England governors and eastern Canadian premiers to discuss “cheap, clean power.” Then he came to the point. “I’m not going to be seeking reelection for governor,” he said. “In this moment of Rhode Island’s history, I want to devote all my time, all my energy to the task at hand, and that is running our government.” Unsurprisingly, those words — coming from a man who has been a Republican, Independent, and Democrat; who has served as city councilman, mayor, US senator, and governor — triggered an avalanche of commentary. And rather than offer our own take, we decided to stitch excerpts of these reactions into a sort of verbal quilt representing the splendor of their variety. The results are not unlike the man himself: fascinating, memorable, contradictory, a bit awkward. To clear up any potential confusion caused by the headline, lets get something straight: Lincoln Chafee is still very much alive. There was, however — like when State Treasurer (and likely 2014 gubernatorial candidate) Gina Raimondo said, “Like his father before him, the Governor always had Rhode Island’s best interests at heart and was an unfailing optimist during very difficult times” — an “In Memoriam” tone to some of the comments that followed Chafee’s announcement. In his Sunday column, the ProJo’s Edward Fitzpatrick made the comparison explicit. “It’s like a funeral; everyone speaks well of the departed,” he wrote. So here it, folks, Lincoln Chafee’s political eulogy — delivered, of course, while the man still has more than 16 months left to serve in office. The source for each excerpt is at the bottom of each column. _Philip Eil

he couldn’t win and I think he’d rather spend the next year and half doing some good for the state than waging a losing battle.9 Yet by hanging up his hat, he also evinced a modicum of humility and self-awareness that’s become all too rare in politics.10 And it seemed fitting that on the day before he made his announcement that he would not seek reelection, he made his feelings clear on another tragedy in the making. He urged there be no U.S. military strike on Syria. He said he is a peace person and peace is achievable if gone about the right way. Peace, imagine. The man believes in peace. Go figure. And he is a champion of same-sex marriage, one of the great leaps forward in the state’s recent history. The man believes in equal rights. Go figure. And he refused to flush more public money down the rat hole of the 38 Studios debacle. The man believes in not throwing good money after bad. Go figure.11

Although Lincoln Chafee does not believe in Christmas trees, his announcement that he is not seeking re-election is certainly an early Christmas gift for all Rhode Islanders who want real leadership in the State House.1

than when Nixon left the White House during Watergate.2 It is good news for Rhode Island that Governor Chafee announced yesterday that he will not seek a second term. The state desperately needs strong and creative leadership to revive its economy and manage other enormous challenges. Mr. Chafee, while often well-meaning, seemed incapable of providing the executive leadership that will be vital to turning the state around.3 Chafee, 60, was born into one of Rhode Island’s founding Five Families; his father was the iconic John Chafee, a moderate Republican who served as governor and then senator before dying in 1999. Then-Governor Lincoln Almond appointed Chafee, then a Republican mayor in Warwick, to fill the remainder of his father’s term and he won it on his own right in 2000. Chafee was defeated in 2006 by Democrat Sheldon Whitehouse.4 Chafee was sworn into [the governor’s] office under a sun-splashed winter chill on the south steps at the Statehouse in January, 2011. He inherited from Republican Donald Carcieri an economic mess and a state government adrift. Unemployment was 12 percent, the worst since the Great Depression. Carcieri, whose experience had been in the private sector, ran as the “businessman’’ governor. But after eight years at the Statehouse, Rhode

Island had about 40,000 fewer jobs than the day he took over. To top it all off, in the waning days of his administration, Carcieri pushed the disastrous 38 Studios deal, which risked $75 million in taxpayer-backed bonds on a video game company run by retired Boston Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling. The company went bankrupt shortly after Chafee took office. Rhode Island government was once again a national laughingstock. Some even blamed Chafee, even though he was the most vocal critic of the Schilling deal.5

He has always been a true gentleman with great character and compassion.6 I don’t think he has that dynamic personality that modern politics really requires, so I don’t think he did a great job of kind of building a coalition. But, for my money, I’d really rather deal with a principled person than a fast-talking politician. I think most Rhode Islanders agree with that.7 Chafee has managed to hemorrhage support each time he’s been on a statewide ballot: he got 57% in 2000, 47% in 2006 and 36% in 2010. In short, it was very, very hard to see how Lincoln Chafee could win another election for governor without another multicandidate perfect storm.8 I think he realized

It is important for all Rhode Island citizens, especially the victims and families of the Station Nightclub fire, to remember that it was Lincoln Chafee who was one of only two Rhode Island elected officials to step up, in an effort, to secure the Station Fire site for a memorial park. After a three-year fight, I was able to request that Governor Chafee consider taking this land by eminent domain. He not only agreed to help, but, both he and speaker Gordon Fox acted quickly and jointly to help deliver this precious land to the hands of the people to whom it rightfully belonged. I will never forget the compassion, understanding and support offered by this gentle and honorable man. Thank you Governor Chafee. May God bless you.12 Lincoln Chafee — this guy is one of a kind. I’ve never met someone who has such a firm sense of right and wrong, such a welldefined inner compass, and who follows it with such conviction. It really is a rare thing, and as I’ve gotten a little distance I’ve come to the sad conclusion that I may never see that again.13 Walking up statehouse steps I observed @LincolnChafee save a praying mantis.

on the Airwaves

With a bishop by his side, dan yorke enters rhody tV talk If you’ve been wondering when Rhode Island was going to get its very own nighttime, cable-news-inspired, Hannity- or Hardball-style talk show, the wait is over. “Welcome in to State of Mind,” Dan Yorke told viewers Monday at 7:30 pm on myRITV. The longtime WPRO talk radio host sat at a desk in front of a computer-generated backdrop featuring a photo of the Providence skyline at dusk. “Now, listen, if you’re tuning in for the first time,” he continued, “no matter how high or far this program goes, you can say that you saw the first one.” Then after a few more brief opening remarks, he said, “I’m looking forward to this project, but I have no time for small talk. We’ve got a lot going on.” With that, he dove into the show’s kickoff segment, called “The Rundown,” where he rapidly led viewers through the increasingly tangled situation in Syria (“So, it’s hard to follow the propaganda, isn’t it?”); a recent Providence Journal story about a bloated, $6.7 millionover-budget computer upgrade at the DMV; and a plea to the blond-haired country singer Faith Hill, whom NBC has swapped out of this year’s Sunday Night Football opening sequence for the younger blond-haired country singer Carrie Underwood. “Please come back,” Yorke said. Dan Yorke State of Mind, which is filmed in a green-screen studio at WPRI and WNAC’s East Providence headquarters on the afternoon of the day it airs, is part of a broader effort by the station to ratchet up its Rhodybased programming. In addition to weekday news broadcasts running at various times between 4:30 am and 11 pm, State joins the daily lifestyle-based Rhode Show, which premiered in 2008, and the weekly business interview, Executive Suite, which began in 2011. “Local programming . . . is king to all screens at this point, whether it’s [a] digital screen, whether it’s your phone, whether it’s an on-air screen,” says WPRI and WNAC president and GM Patrick Wholey, who proudly trumpets the stations’ 57 hours of original programming (WJAR, their closest competitor, produces 37). And while Rhode Islanders are most familiar with hearing Yorke over the radio airwaves — he’s “pretty much an institution here,” Wholey says — State is far from his first foray into television. Dig deep enough on the Internet and you’ll find photos of a mustachioed, suspenders-wearing Yorke barking at the camera in the early-mid 1990s, when his Dan Yorke Show ran at midnight after Nightline on WGGB in Springfield, Massachusetts. “You could pick out weeks or months when this data isn’t perfect,” says Yorke of the show, which ran for seven years, “ but by in large, the ratings performance was: ‘Leno, Yorke, Letterman.’ ”

f

While he’s grown “a little mellower” since then, Yorke says that his approach to hosting really hasn’t changed. “I want people to know who the good guys and bad guys are,” he says. “I want people to get a little bit of insight over what’s really going on.” For a guy who has been opining professionally for decades, though, Yorke gets surprisingly shy when you ask about his political leanings. “If you want to score me at the end of the day — the week, the month, the year, the decade, the career — I guess I’m righter than lefter,” he says. “But I’m no ideologue by any stretch.” He searches around for a while to find the right word — “some people call me a ‘populist,’ ” “I disdain the term ‘moderate’” — before saying, “I let the work speak for itself.” In this case, the debut episode of State welcomed Catholic Bishop of Providence Thomas Tobin into the studio for a discussion of, among other topics, Rhode Island’s recent legalization of same sex marriage. The issue left Tobin, “very, very disappointed,” he told Yorke. “Frankly, I hoped for and prayed for . . . better for our state, because I think it’s a very bad development,” he said, to which Yorke replied “the Bishop and I are on the same page here.” Yorke felt “kind of empty” after the law passed, he said. “Not angry, but empty.” The following night, Yorke discussed the controversial NECAP test Rhode Island public schools will be using as a graduation requirement for the first time in 2013-’14 — a test the ACLU, the local NAACP, Providence Mayor Angel Taveras, and others have vocally opposed as a graduation requirement. Not Yorke. In a message to students who publicly protest the tests, he said, “I don’t want to be crass, but, kids, I love ya, but shut up! And study!” So, what demographic is Dan York State of Mind aimed at? Wholey says he’s more concerned with the question of “who?” than “how many?” when it comes to generating revenue. “We think the right type of people will watch this, because we know the right type of people listen to talk radio and listen to Dan,” he says. A page on WPRImedia.com aimed at potential advertisers provides insight into what he means. The “target audience” for State of Mind, the page says, is “White Collar Professionals with 75K+ Income,” “Families with 1-2 children in the home who care about the community,” “College Graduates,” and “Anyone with an interest in how the state of Rhode Island works!” Go to foxprovidence.com/myritv to find your cable provider’s channel listing for myRITV. _Philip Eil

2nd Story expandS; pluS, a full Slate of dramatic expreSSi on

_By Bill rodri guez

As successful theaters go, 2nd Story Theatre in Warren is especially thriving. As in opening a second performance space this month, and this summer closing a $100,000 deal with the city to purchase a former school for setbuilding and rehearsals. Combining talent and ambition, artistic director Ed Shea has developed 2nd Story in leaps and bounds since its first performances in 1978. That was when co-founder Pat Hegnauer was directing his acting, above Harry’s Harbor Front Restaurant on Long Wharf in Newport, hence the theater’s name. There have been periods of dormancy, with Shea joining the company at Trinity Rep for 12 years and becoming a late-blooming undergrad at Brown University. But Warren became 2nd Story’s home in 2001 when Shea and Lynne Collinson, his former 2nd Story acting colleague, reestablished the theater in a large building on Market Street — in its second story, of course. Shea has never stayed still for long, so why should his theater? When did he feel it needed to expand? “I found that the theatre was in a state of maintenance, not growth,” he said in an email exchange. “I looked around and saw an audience that wanted more plays; an acting company that wanted more roles; a staff that wanted more challenges; and a building that could house it all. Drama is about growth, transformation, and change. Shouldn’t the theatre be a reflection of that?” Have there been plays he wanted to produce that he didn’t because they wouldn’t fill the 150 upstairs seats? “Absolutely. There always will be. But our second venue will shorten that list. The DownStage season consists mostly of plays that, in my view, wouldn’t fill UpStage. Still, I’m a theatrical populist at heart. And I say that with pride. The challenge is to choose a season, up or down, that they want to see and that I want to do.” Is there a particular play he wouldn’t do upstairs that he’s especially pleased with being able to stage in the 70-seat downstairs space? “LoBBy hero is the perfect vehicle to christen our new venue. It’s small, smart, sophisticated, and significant. It’s modern and timeless, entertaining and existential, funny and philosophical, simple yet complex. It challenges everyone: actors, designers, director, and audience. I expect everyone to come away with a greater knowledge of themselves: Gnothi seauton. A mirror up to nature. Isn’t that what it’s all about?” A wide variety of plays are slated for 2nd Story’s two theaters this fall. In the new downstairs space, Kenneth Lonergan’s Lobby Hero (through October 6) is set in the entryway of a Manhattan apartment building, where we follow a twentysomething doorman’s interactions. sons of the prophet, by Stephen Karam

‘Simple yet complex’ Val Westgate, Jeff Church, Ara Boghigian, and Marion Carey in in 2nd Story’s Lobby Hero. (October 25-November 24) is a comedy about, believe it or not, chronic pain. In the upstairs theater, Brian Friel’s Dancing at Lughnasa (September 27-October 27), set in Ireland’s County Donegal, recollects the narrator’s summer as a seven-yearold in his aunts’ country cottage. George Bernard Shaw’s saint Joan (November 15-December 15) is an examination of the life and trial of Joan of Arc. And in a special event at the Bristol Statehouse, the theater will present William Gibson’s goLDa’s BaLcony, with Golda Meir looking back on her life on the eve of the 1973 Yom Kippur War (November 8-December 8). At Trinity Repertory Company, an adaptation of John Steinbeck’s classic novel about Depression-era Dust Bowl migration, the grapes of Wrath, will be directed by Brian McEleney (through October 6).

And don’t forget Dickens’s a christMas caroL (November 8-December 28).

In the dramedy gooD peopLe, by David Lindsay-Abaire (November 7-December 8), an economically desperate single mother looks up a successful former high school sweetheart, with surprising results.

The Providence Performing Arts Center is hosting a batch of popular Broadway musicals. eVita (through September 14) presents the Argentinian folk heroine, followed by once (October 1-6), which reprises the 2006 film of the same name, as a Dublin busker and a woman he meets get acquainted through his songs. ghost: the MusicaL (October 22-27) is another film adaptation, this one the sentimental tale of a young woman and her dead lover. Transitions continue with the phantoM of the opera (November 27-December 7), as a beautiful soprano is pursued by an enamored presence in a Paris opera house. Another theater capable of mounting a big-scale musical is Ocean State Theatre Company, which is staging Les MiséraBLes (October 2-27), the adaptation of Victor Hugo’s tale of relentless pursuit and goodness challenged in revolutionary Paris. That will be followed by LoMBarDi (November 6-24), about the life of the relentless Hall of Fame football coach.

d n u o b a s d n u o s fall means things are heating up

_By Chris Conti

Adios, summer 2013. There were great local and national artists at venues statewide just about every night of the week, and the arrival of autumn typically means even more shows and nationally touring acts on the live circuit. Judging from this comprehensive list of recommended upcoming gigs, we see no reason why the party should stop. There are a slew of budget-friendly shows here too, so no excuses — get off the couch and catch a show or two! We start with the 5th annual Fusion Fest, featuring some of the finest from East Bay imprint 75orLess Records. The hometown throwdown returns to the Water Street Landing in Warren (next to Blount’s Clam Shack), and this year’s lineup does not disappoint: aLLySEn caLLEry, GaLvanIZE, LLoyD’S LLaMaS, JacoB HaLLEr, and the long-awaited return of SIX STar GEnEraL (drummer Dan Ulmschneider is off DL following recent shoulder surgery). 75orLess founder (and Six Star bassist/singer) Mark MacDougall is the man to thank for this free (!) all-day soiree; proceeds will benefit Fusionworks Dance Company. There will be plenty of food trucks on site, and a locally sourced craft beer garden. Visit 75orlessrecords.com for more info and the schedule. Dusk (301 Harris Ave, Providence, 401.714.0444, duskprovidence.com) is a casual bar/lounge tucked behind Atwells Avenue which delivers varied lineups and lo-dough cover charges. Stop by every Wednesday and bang thy head at the wildly popular METaL nIGHT. And speaking of eclectic lineups, check out THE EvIL STrEaKS with THE SKELETon BEaTS, GIn MILL JanE (recent debut EP ’Till You Come Home is highly recommended), and SonIc GrIFTErS on September 13, stoner-rock trio Sweet Love (pick up the debut album Motor ASAP) on September 20, and on September 28 it’s a post-hardcore bill led by locals aSK THE DEaD (celebrating a new 7” EP), with no ocEan, TEnanTS, and SUn BEarS, all for just $6 at the door. Smack-dab in the center of the creative capital lies AS220 (115 Empire St, Providence, 401.831.9327, as220.org), the all-encompassing home for the arts since 1985. They’ve hosted some stellar shows already this year (Parquet Courts killed it in front of 20 or so people) with lots more on deck: get up close and personal with metal thrashers I, DESTroyEr, BLESSED oFFaL, orSUS, and vEnoMIZEr at the 95 Empire Black Box space on September 13; SnowPLowS, BUTTonHooF, THE aTTEnDInG, and “folk doom” quartet BLooDPHEaSanT (featuring Shannon LeCorre of Gertrude Atherton) perform on September 21; there’s more hardcore action on September 25 courtesy of DownTown BoyS (look them up ASAP) along with DISaSTEr STrIKES (Boston), La arMaDa (Chicago), and THE yaBEaUTIFULS; and TroPHy ScarS will headline with support from TaLLSHIPS ET SaIL on October 19. Fête (103 Dike St, Providence, 401.383.1113, fetemusic.com) is the crown jewel of Olneyville and is a vital venue on the

Y

DYnamiC DuO they Might Be Giants will return to Lupo’s on october 10. national show circuit, with a state-ofthe-art sound system and two separate rooms (the main stage ballroom and a smaller lounge). The lounge comes alive on September 24 when THE SILKS throw down with Austin, TX blues crew BLacK JoE LEwIS & THE HonEyBEarS ($15), and the ballroom hosts Bow wow (who apparently isn’t so “Lil” anymore) on September 27. Brooklynbased crew rUBBLEBUcKET heats up the ballroom on October 4 with special guest locals KID MoUnTaIn and roZ raSKIn & THE rIcE caKES. And esteemed wordsmith TEcH n9nE brings his “Something Else Tour” to town on October 22 with a slew of lyricists, including ProZaK and MayDay. Fête is one of the better hip-hop venues in the state; every Saturday, DJ Born caSUaL (voted Best Dance Party in our 2013 readers poll) spins hip-hop and R&B, and the final Thursday of each month belongs to Strange Famous Records, as SaGE FrancIS and B. DoLan host the “cHUrcH oF ProvIDEncE” series, complete with a functioning wrestling ring, assorted musical lineups, and general lunacy all night long. The Church of Providence is by far the best $10 you can spend on entertainment in one evening. While we’re on the hip-hop tip, Local 121 (121 Westminster St, Providence, 401.274.2121, local121.com) has DJ nooK on the wheels every Tuesday (21+ and no cover), and the aforementioned Born Causal now hosts a brunch at 121’s Speakeasy on occasional Sundays at 11 am (the next one is on September 22). And be on the lookout for guest spots from DJ DoX ELLIS on September 14 and 21. Lupo’s Heartbreak Hotel (79 Washington St, Providence, 401.331.5876, lupos.com) and its little brother the Met (1005 Main St, Pawtucket, themetri.com, 401.729.1005) consistently bring in big national and independent artists. More rap, you ax? Lupo’s will be downright bananas when cHIEF

KEEF takes over on September 27, and “The

Smokers Club Tour” sparks up on October 17, featuring JoEy BaDa$$, aB-SoUL, THE UnDEracHEIvErS, and cHEvy wooDS, all hosted by DJ STaTIK SELEKTaH. Rock acts lined up at Lupo’s include THEy MIGHT BE GIanTS (October 10), FIvE FInGEr DEaTH PUncH and coHEED & caMBrIa (October 18), and coLD war KIDS (October 21). Meanwhile at the Met (105 Main St, Pawtucket, 401.729.1005, themetri.com), limited tix remain for “Dudesmash 2” on September 14, with DEEr TIcK headlining a killer lineup, including THE Low anTHEM, JoE FLETcHEr & THE wronG rEaSonS, LaST GooD TooTH, ravI SHavI, and many more performing in the Met’s courtyard. Neil Young fans should head there on September 28 for the all-star tribute crew ForEvEr yoUnG, and WBRU ushers in Rocktober with BIFFy cLyro and MornInG ParaDE on October 1. THE nEIGHBoUrHooD, responsible for that insanely addictive “holes in my sweater” song, will appear on October 12 with LovELIFE and GHoST LoFT. And mark down November 6 for the return of Boise, Idaho greats BUILT To SPILL (still waiting on that new album, Mr. Martsch), with guests SLaM DUnK and THE warM HaIr. Have you caught a show at the revamped Columbus Theatre (270 Broadway, Providence, columbustheatre.com) yet? The Low Anthem’s Jeff Prystowsky and Ben Knox-Miller have set up shop with a fully functioning recording studio (Roz & the Rice Cakes recently cut their new album here, and a new record from TLA is on the way) and an intimate upstairs performance space (the recent Vudu Sister album release show was a blast). The schedule is in full swing; check out SEan HayES with THE BLanK TaPES on September 26; BILL caLLaHan (the new Dream River drops on September 17) on October 4; limited seats remain for the BonnIE “PrIncE”

BILLy show on October 11 (an absolute steal at $20), and SPIrIT FaMILy rEUnIon

will play the upstairs stage on October 31 with HUrray For THE rIFF raFF and THE DESLonDES. Manchester 65 (65 Manchester St, West Warwick, 401.649.0164) is a new venue with potential, and I imagine the old mill space will be crumbling when punk vets MaDBaLL hit the stage on October 19 with cHEEcH, rEaSon To FIGHT, and wISDoM In cHaInS. Other noteworthy gigs include ska-pop vets THE EnGLISH BEaT (October 24) and singer-songwriter ZacH DEPUTy (November 23). RI live dive fixture/Northern Lands bassist Aaron Jaehnig has a winner on his hands with the Parlour (formerly the Penalty Box, 1119 North Main St, Providence, 401.383.5858). Jaehnig will reunite with Mandy Allan and the GIrL HaGGarD crew for a special show on September 28, and Barn BUrnInG and SHarKS coME crUISIn’ roll in on October 19. The Spot Underground (101 Richmond St, Providence, 401.383.7133, thespot providence.com) is actually above ground now, having relocated to “where the Keg Room usedta be.” The Spot is still heavy on the jam bands, but there is something for everyone just about every night of the week. FUnGUS aMUnGUS and conEHEaD BUDDHa lay down the grooves on September 27, alt-pop locals For THE LovE oF SLoanE play on October 4, and THE ToaSTErS return on November 3 with THE cUSTIES and the return of SEnIor DIScoUnT.

mAkiNg tioN A CoNNEC AerplAye’s debut, plus A wide rAnge of evocAtive moves

_by Johne tte rodri guez Some say it’s the convergence of an Ivy League and a design school; some say it’s the cross-fertilization of students, faculty, and community members. Whatever the source, Rhode Island has long held the distinction of being the state with the highest number of artists per capita. When you look at the fall lineup for dance troupes — including college companies, local dance companies, and special events — you can visualize hundreds of brains spinning with ideas that manifest in scores of movement sequences, thousands of steps, and dozens of emotionally-charged dance performances. The atmosphere that nourishes artists — ”the connectiveness that seems to be here,” in Heather Ahern’s words — may be what drew the dancer/choreographer/teacher back to Rhode Island last fall. “I think this culture here has a little slice of everything,” she noted in a recent phone conversaA chAnce to shine Aerplaye’s Arnold and Baryshnikov. tion. “The ocean, the arts — but a quirky, interesting arts scene — I missed that.” and jazzy, set to saxophonist Hamiet Ahern was a founding member of the Bluiett’s music; “Utopia,” danced in Groundwerx Dance Theatre that wowed steel skirt sculptures, exploring social Rhode Island dance fans for 15 years in the mores, set to Rachel’s classical/minimallate ’80s and ’90s, before the group went ist music; “Voices,” in heavy medievaltheir separate ways.

Open for Dancing moves to Newport the following weekend (September 21 and 22), where three choreographers will create dances for three Aquidneck Island spaces: Yanira Castro will set her work at the Opera House Theater; Deborah Lohse will use the meditation labyrinth outside Salve University’s McKillop Library; and John-Mark Owen will make a dance drama on the terraces of the Gray Craig estate in Middletown. This unique (and free!) multidance experience is always amazing. IMC’s other site-specific piece this fall (with audience members moving from room to room) will be the popular Newport Nutcracker at Rosecliff (November 29-December 6, islandmovingco.org). Festival Ballet proviDence (festival ballet.com) will kick off its season at the Vets on October 3 with Together We Dance 3, an annual gala benefit for the company that spotlights invited guest artists from national companies, along with FBP performers. Their intimate in-studio series, Up Close On Hope, runs October 25, 26, and November 1,2, 8, and 9. And they’ll stage their annual take on The Nutcracker at the

Providence Performing Arts Center December 20-22. Paula Hunter’s Jump! Dance company will present Carnival of the Animals on November 1 and 2, and Scenes from the Polar Express on December 21 and 22. Check jumpdancecompany.org for more details. The first international dance performance this year (November 1 and 2) comes from Firstworks (first-works.org), which is presenting the Montrealbased company cirque Éloize at PPAC on November 1 and 2. Their show, Cirkopolis, combines dance, theater, acrobatics, and circus feats, featuring 12 performers who reinvent themselves in the confines of a factory-city. With fast-paced movement accompanied by original music and video projections, the stage design portrays a dark and impersonal universe above which the performers fly, juggle, spin, tumble, and balance. Rhode Island College’s Performing Arts Series (ric.edu/pfa/pas.php) will host the Hungarian state Folk ensemBle on November 14. Founded in 1951 to preserve and present various folk-related Hungarian genres, this large ensemble is as colorful as it is energetic. Their varied repertoire includes traditional Hungarian music and dance, dramatic folk plays, and creative contemporary dances inspired by the themes or movements of the historic dances. Other events at Rhode Island College (ric.edu/mtd/calendar_danceEvents. php): gary sHore, the associate professor of dance at Roger Williams University, will present The Link To the Missing Link and Animating the Closet on October 25; and the ric Dance company, featuring local artists, will perform a program titled Dance Area Code 401 on December 6 and 7.

a COMiC BOOK PROCeDuRaL The cast of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Contrary to popular belief, the start of fall doesn’t only mean that all your coffee, beer, pastries and dips are required to be pumpkin spiced. No, just as the weather is changing, so is your TV viewing schedule, for better or worse. As they do every year, the networks are rolling out hordes of new shows, throwing every idea at the wall and seeing what sticks, from intriguing big-budget shows (Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Almost Human) to charming workplace sitcoms (The Michael J. Fox Show, Brooklyn Nine-Nine) and to the utterly absurd genre-bender (looking at you, Sleepy Hollow). As always, there are some good, some bad and most falling somewhere in between. So before you mix yourself a pumpkintini and plop down on the couch, consult our guide to find out what’s worth your time, what you should skip, and what deserves a hate-watch.

sleepy HolloW | FOX | Mondays @ 9 [pre-

mieres September 16] | I have absolutely no idea what to make of this confounding, intriguing, and potentially offensive new show based on Washingtons Irving’s nearly 200-year-old tale. The premise is perplexing: Ichabod Crane (Tom Mison) “dies” during a mission in 1790, but wakes up in modern-day Sleepy Hollow, along with the Headless Horseman, who promptly begins a killing spree. Crane teams with the newly

appointed town sheriff (Nicole Beharie) to bring the Horseman down. Yeah, seriously. But I must add that it’s co-created by Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, who wrote the recent Star Trek flicks and produced Alias and Fringe, so at least this insane idea is in good hands. Even if it does have all the makings of a train wreck, you can expect some fun (read: funny) moments before it crashes (read: gets cancelled).

Brooklyn nine-nine | FOX | Tuesdays @ 8:30 [premieres September 17] | The hilarious Andy Samberg finally gets his post-SNL vehicle in which he’ll play a skilled but immature detective forced to adjust to life under his new, no-nonsense captain (Andre Braugher). What could have been a groan-inducing odd couple comedy should work well guided by the master of the workplace comedy, Michael Schur (The Office, Parks and Recreation) and co-creator Dan Goor, who crafted one of the fall’s funniest pilots. And supporting players Terry Crews and Chelsea Peretti are always good for a laugh or two. Marvel’s agents of s.H.i.e.l.D. | ABC |

Tuesdays @ 8 [premieres September 24] | After The Avengers obliterated the box office last summer, Disney’s Marvel handed Joss Whedon the keys to the franchise and a TV series to boot. While this should please fanboys, Whedon’s track record on the small

screen has been iffy, ratings-wise (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Firefly). Though there are nods to the film and its heroes scattered throughout, none of the show’s main characters are supes, so this is ultimately a procedural with a sprinkling of comic book mythology here and there. But this could be the first successful superhero show since Smallville, and it will certainly be interesting to see how Whedon can sustain the premise from week to week.

ventures (No Reservations and The Layover), but with a slight twist: a different celebrity tour guide each week. Watch Joel McHale drink with the locals in Dublin, Aziz Ansari pig out in Hong Kong, and Aisha Tyler shopping and hanging with Chris O’Dowd in London, among others. This open-ended travel diary has a perfect blend of variety and familiarity, and will be a solid flagship show for the promising new network.

9 [premieres September 26] | Thirteen years after his departure from Spin City, Fox is returning to television, essentially playing himself in a safe-bet sitcom that NBC hopes can restore some of its long-lost Thursday night glory. Fox’s Mike Henry returns to the job he quit five years ago after being diagnosed with Parkinson’s and must balance his family and career. If it sounds like a generic premise, that’s because it is. But a strong supporting cast, featuring The Wire’s wisecracking Wendell Pierce and Betsy Brandt as Fox’s wife, who gets to showcase the comedic chops she rarely deployed playing Marie on Breaking Bad, help make this mass-appeal comedy worth checking out.

mieres September 24] | Following memorable turns on the laugh-out-loud satires Childrens Hospital and Burning Love (catch up with these web series if you haven’t already), it was only a matter of time before Malin Åkerman landed a leading role. Here Åkerman plays former party girl Kate who suddenly must deal with Peter’s (Bradley Whitford) family drama when the two get married on a whim after meeting at a karaoke bar. The show gets off to a slow start, but could blossom into a hit as long as Åkerman showcases the subtle, awkward humor she’s best at.

latest attempt at cringe comedy. Merchant plays Stuart, a lanky web designer looking for love after moving to LA from London. “He’s just a loser in England who’s a loser here, but even more out of his depth, because his Britishness is even more pronounced and awkward,” says Merchant of his character. HBO’s comedies have been hit or miss lately, but this show has big potential, especially given its Eastbound & Down lead-in.

Wyman, Almost Human introduces us to an LAPD precinct that teams up to fight crime with highly evolved androids 35 years in the future. This intriguing premise has Abrams’s familiar fingerprints all over it, but he hasn’t had a small screen hit since Lost, and now that he’s Hollywood’s most sought-after sci-fi director, likely won’t have time to make this show one either.

BoarDWalk eMpire | HBO | Sundays @ 9 |

Since its pilot, Boardwalk has toed the line between good and great, but following an explosive and bloody denouement to last season, this Prohibition period piece should finally cement its place as one of cable’s best dramas. The most encouraging development this year is that Steve Buscemi’s Nucky Thompson has partnered with Michael K. Williams’s Chalky White, one of the few characters to bring a unique attitude and flair to their role. Newcomers

Jeffrey Wright and Ron Livingston appear to be worthy antagonists, but this will always be Buscemi’s show, for better or worse.

sons of anarcHy | FX | Tuesdays @ 10 | Outspoken showrunner Kurt Sutter has long said that he envisions Sons as a sevenseason story, so expect blood to be shed ad nauseam going into the penultimate act. This has never been the smartest show on TV by any measure, but it never intended to be, and is always good for a mindless hour of gunfights and motorcycle chases. This year, expect a ruthless, jagged Jax (Charlie Hunnam) to battle to keep his family together now that wife Tara (Maggie Siff) and stepfather Clay (Ron Perlman) are behind bars. DVR OVERLOAD ALERT | Sunday, September 29 was already going down in television history as it’s the night of the highly anticipated Breaking Bad finale. But fear not, there will always be something to watch. Too much, in fact. There are premieres galore before, during, and after Bad ends: Showtime’s fantastic Homeland returns for season 3 and is followed by the debut of Lizzy Caplan’s new series, Masters of Sex; the final season of Eastbound & Down starts on HBO, followed by the aforementioned Hello Ladies; CBS’ lauded The Good Wife kicks off season 5 following the premiere of the 23rd edition of The Amazing Race; The Simpsons begin its 25th year; and the Patriots play the Falcons on NBC in prime time. Got all that? Good, because none of it matters — we’ll all be watching Breaking Bad and then crying ourselves to sleep. ^

Warhol’s SCreen TeSTS, graffiti oWls, and creepy machines

_By GreG Cook

‘i only Wanted to find great people and let them Be themselVes’ edie Sedgwick in Warhol’s Screen Tests.

“What I liked was chunks of time all together, every real moment,” Andy Warhol wrote of his Screen Tests. They weren’t actually audition shots as Hollywood used the term, but silent “living portraits,” each one about 2 ¾-minutes long, the length of 100-foot roll of black-and-white film, but slowed down to last about four minutes. In “Andy Warhol’s Screen Tests,” the RISD Museum (224 Benefit St, Providence, November 15 to May 11) will continuously screen 20 of the more than 350 of these portraits that the Pop artist filmed between 1964 and ’66. A young Bob Dylan stares into the

Y

camera, then at the floor, and scratches his head, seemingly trying to shake off boredom. Model and socialite Edie Sedgwick holds as still as she can save for the blinking of her big dark eyes. An old Salvador Dali, sporting his curled-up mustache, looks scared. A bearded, frizzyhaired Allen Ginsberg freezes. Lou Reed, in dark sunglasses that hide his eyes, drinks a bottle of Coca-Cola in the most badass, disreputable soda commercial ever. The short films come from the time when Warhol was making marathon observational anti-movies, like his fivehour film of a friend sleeping and his eight-hour static shot of the Empire State

Building. He showed the Screen Tests at parties and at Velvet Underground concerts, and included some in his campy narrative movies. Now they seem built for YouTube — just the right length, just intriguing enough, just enough celebrity to hold your attention. The legend is that Warhol just turned the 16mm Bolex camera on and walked away — though what really went down was surely more stage-managed than that. “I only wanted to find great people and let them be themselves,” Warhol wrote, “and I’d film them for a certain length of time and that would be the movie.” Warhol’s films are just one of the

shows worth checking out this fall. Some other art — including graffiti owls, creepy machines, and naked dudes on horseback — to have on your radar:

serious stuff

friDaY 13 boY, that sounDs swell

Pere ubu formed in 1975 in

Cleveland. On the surface they were noisy and discordant, but there was a skewed logic and a genuine delight in their buzzy constructs, as heard on their seminal early discs (The Modern Dance, Dub Housing, New Picnic Time), their poppiest effort (1989’s Cloudland), and this year’s Lady From Shanghai. Frontman David Thomas — free-associating, high-pitched, a singular presence — was the focal point, and he’s the only original to the 2013 edition of the band. But the current players are true to the off-kilter blend that is Pere Ubu’s signature sound. They’re at Fête, 103 Dike St, Providence. Garagin and Atlantic Thrills open at 9 pm | $15 | 401.383.1112 | fetemusic.com

saturDaY 14 PostivitY

John McCauley fought through fractured relationships and personal demons during the recording of Deer tick’s forthcoming fifth album, Negativity (due out September 24 on Partisan Records), and the resulting record is a victory lap for the PVD quintet. The band retreated to Portland, Oregon to record with Steve Berlin (of Los Lobos, and McCauley’s Diamond Rugs bandmate) and recalibrate.

_By ch r IS cO N T I “Rocktober” ain’t here just yet, but September is no slouch thanks to the 5th Annual Rocktucket Block Party. The 2013 Pawtucket Arts Festival is underway, with events scheduled through the end of the month, but for music fans it’s all about Rocktucket. And what a lineup! Sixteen local and regional acts are scheduled to perform, all for just a requested $5 donation at the door. This is by far the best five-spot you will drop on live music this year. Rain or shine, it’s going down Saturday starting around noontime. For those about to rock — the Bucket salutes you! We’ve been spoiled with scores of mustsee festivals and block parties statewide over this summer (Newport Folk and Jazz festivals, Rhythm & Roots, AS220’s Foo Fest, Liberty Fest, Hope Street Block Party, etc.), and now “downtown” Pawtucket (which sort JAMMIN’ Ants In the Cellar. of resembles a backlot facade at Universal Studios) gets to play party host. Rocktucket organizers have assembled another outstanding array of affiliate and Boston native BIG shuG will make his Rocktalent, with an emphasis on quality independent hip-hop tucket debut.

Theater Ain’t thAt AmericA TriniTy’s gripping Grapes of Wrath _By Bill rod r igu ez Rarely does history come alive in

literature as vividly as John Steinbeck f accomplished in The Grapes of Wrath, his 1939

intrusive, but they work well when they provide scene-changing transitions and during a rhythmic shovel-digging burial scene. Audience intimacy is enhanced by the play taking place in the setting of a bar, as though it’s being performed in the sort of workingman dive these characters would feel at home in. (Audience members can grab a beer there before the show and during intermission.) The Joads are hopeful about their prospects in California, as Ma imagines picking oranges, grapes, and peaches. But before they arrive, a man returning rom the Golden State tells them what he encountered: farms and hiring agents advertising to attract thousands of workers when they only need hundreds, so they can drive wages down to a pittance. Tom Joad has a crisis of conscience when they arrive at a farm that desperately needs fruit picked before it rots: does he get his hungry family work or does he support the organizing workers, dismissed as Reds, who are refusing to accept starvation wages? To credit some of the actors who stand out: Thorne is an intense Tom; Scurria is fierce as Ma, and also sweetly comforting upon occasion. As Uncle John, Fred Sullivan, Jr. is captivatingly understated as Uncle John, a character burden with guilt over not getting his late wife medical attention. Joe Wilson, Jr. does a wonderful job conveying the crucial character of Jim Casy, a former preacher ashamed about his fornicating ways. He delivers some penetrating Steinbeckian wisdom concerning our being pieces of a greater soul, transcending our individual foibles. One of our great literary realists and literate consciences, Steinbeck earlier penned In Dubious Battle, which also dealt with organizing a strike by fruit pickers. The Grapes of Wrath will inspire social justice in this country for as long as there isn’t enough to go around. In other words, forever. ^

Pulitzer Prize- and National Book Awardwinning masterpiece about the Okie migration during the Great Depression. Similar kudos are warranted when a novel is adapted for the stage as skillfully as Frank Galati did in his 1988 play of the same name, a Tony Award winner. Trinity Repertory Company is presenting it (through October 6) in their downstairs theater, marvelously directed by Brian McEleney. Between the cursed weather and a heartless bank, the tenant farming Joads have been driven out of both their livelihood and their home. They are Ma and Pa (Anne Scurria and Richard Donelly), Granma and Grampa (Janice Duclos and Stephen Berenson) plus other family members, and the main character in the story, son Tom (Stephen Thorne). He has returned just in time to join their journey to California, freshly paroled from four years in prison for killing a man in a fight. Tough and gritty, he represents the sort of person nurtured to survive in this roughand-tumble, hardscrabble environment. When he shows up, a running gag has every new family member he greets ask him if he busted out of prison. He is not the only hard case here. As the crusty Grampa is conveyed by Berenson, his scowls and bursts of temper could pound fence posts into the ground. Or into the powdery soil: Oklahoma has turned into the Dust Bowl of Woody Guthrie songs and epic exodus, after all. Hundreds of thousands fled Oklahoma and the Texas Panhandle. This story, like the historical tragedy, is as much about feelings as about facts, so it opens here atmospherically. Ma describes the relentless prairie wind pulling the corn out by the roots were pulled out.” Granma says, “All day the dust sifted down from the sky. And the next ....” and goes on to picture how the women came out and stood next to their husbands, “to see if the men would break.” Music helps prompt and maintain the dire tone, and the incidental score of the original production has been replaced by folk/rock songs arranged and performed by 3pile, third-year Brown/ Trinity Rep MFA acting students who also take incidental roles. Sometimes, especially toward the beginning, the songs are WESTWARD HO donelly (center) and the Wrath cast. too lengthy and

The musical Evita, at the Providence Performing Arts Center through September 14, works hard to convince us that the rags-to-riches wife of Argentina president Juan Perón was a hero indeed.

EXPRESSIONIST REALISM a detail from still Life (Oil, Vinegar, Glass Jar).

A mAster, remembered ‘Thomas sgouros: Drawn To PainT’ aT wooDs-gerry _By gr eg CooK In the early 1990s, Thomas Sgouros

began to lose his sight. He had been an f illustrator and a painter of fine art landscapes

and still lifes. Macular degeneration would be the end of many artists’ work, but as the center of his vision failed and he was left with just snatches of peripheral vision, he launched on a new series of paintings in 1992. Sgouros, who died from cancer at age 85 in December, called them Remembered Landscapes. They were based on what he could recall and what he might still hazily glimpse. “Evocations of a place or a feeling,” he said. “He simply stepped back and found a way to continue to paint that was not a concession to his disability,” illustrator Chris Van Allsburg says. A room of these effervescent paintings — usually low strips of land, like marshes seen from a distance, under big, softly billowing clouds, all in warm autumn oranges and reds and purples — closes “Thomas ‘A FACTUAL PAINTER’ Still Life with Studio Objects (c. 1990). Sgouros: Drawn to Paint,” a retrospective of the beloved Providence artist and teacher at RISD’s Woods-Gerry Gallery (62 Prospect St, Providence, challenging critique,” Van Allsburg recalls of his student through September 26). days at RISD. He got to know Sgouros when he taught Sharply organized and handsomely installed by Cade with him at RISD in the ’80s, and also found “this kind of Tompkins of Cade Tompkins Projects with help from protective nature he had around his students.” RISD’s Mark Moscone and Robert Brinkerhoff, the exhibiAmong Sgouros’s dozens of illustration clients over tion is a model of the kind of thorough, thoughtful attenthe years were Narragansett Race Track, Fleet Bank, and tion it would be great to see more local artists get here. Amtrak. “I remember donning a hard hat and pretending Sgouros was born in 1927 to Greek immigrants and to lug lumber as a model for some illustration,” his son grew up in Chicago and Cambridge, Massachusetts. He Thomas Sgouros, Jr., writes. moved to Providence to study at Rhode Island School of Illustration paintings here from the 1950s to ’80s inDesign, from which he graduated in 1950. After a stint in clude a ski jumper, a deer hunter, and George Washingthe Air Force, he worked in Boston and New York, where ton for Yankee magazine. His style was a loose, brushy, he painted illustrations and dabbled in a spiky flavor of expressionist realism, often with images layered one atop Abstract Expressionism. the next, that embodies the zeitgeist style of the field “I wanted to be au courant,” Sgouros told The Phoenix during that era. in 2004. “But I gradually realized that I wasn’t that, or I A frequent collaborator was the graphic designer Maldidn’t want to be.

His New England scenes are alive with woodsy greens and browns. Untitled (Boat and House) from around 1980 shows a green boat canted on its side atop a line of grass along water; in the background stands a white house brightly lit by the sun. His skillful technique parallels Andrew Wyeth. Sgouros pulls out certain details, but these paintings are about moody atmosphere. During these years, he was also painting watercolor and oil still lifes of a bicycle horn, teapots, and jars; they’re done in a tight realist style that is part William Harnett, part 1980s preppy neoclassicism. That precision evaporated as Sgouros’s sight failed and he began his Remembered Landscapes. They are like Impressionist evocations of the way the sky moves. They feel suffused with nostalgia, like recalling pleasant days of fall as winter comes. They were an ingenious solution to his vision problem. Van Allsburg says, “The reason he felt compelled to solve the problem is he EVOCATIVE one of the Remembered Landscapes (2009). had to make art — he just had to make it.” ^

THE ACT OF KILLING 122 minUteS | caBle car More than a half million people died in 1965 and ’66 when the Indonesian military, capitalizing on a brief coup attempt against President Sukarno, decided to exterminate the country’s large communist party; the killings were never punished, and many of the perpetrators, who seized victims’ property as their own, are still part of the power structure there. For this unique and unforgettable documentary, Joshua Oppenheimer persuaded former executioners to create scenes about their killings and recorded the process of their staging the vignettes, some of them done in the style of Hollywood movies. These self-serving fantasies would probably seem unbearably perverse if Oppenheimer didn’t also provide a close and damning study of the current political climate in Indonesia, where orange-clad paramilitaries still stomp around intimidating people, indoctrinating local children, and raking in the bucks from gambling and smuggling. In English and subtitled Indonesian. _J.R. Jones

Regency England, one where guests and staff sport period garb, ride, hunt, dance, and flirt decorously (or not). As chick flicks go, this sounds high-concept, but in the hands of first-time director Jerusha Hess (cowriter of Napoleon Dynamite and Nacho Libre) this adaptation of Shannon Hale’s novel is leaden and crass when it should be light and sophisticated. Jennifer Coolidge grates as a vulgar Yank, and Jane Seymour is implausibly bitchy as the resort owner; only JJ Feild, playing an ersatz Mr. Darcy, sounds the right notes. _Andrea Gronvall

IN A WORLD . . . 93 minUteS | r | cinema world Lake Bell, a supporting actress in the romantic comedies What Happens In Vegas and No Strings Attached, sticks to the genre for her feature-film debut as writer-director. In this jaundiced take on the LA production biz, she stars as a vocal coach competing in the notoriously male-dominated field of movie-trailer voice-over, undermined in particularly ugly ways by her narcissistic father (Fred Melamed of A Serious Man), himself a voice-over master. Although Bell strains to condemn sexism and cronyism in Hollywood, the subtext — that it’s a man’s world, so suck it up — is arguably the opposite of her intentions. There’s a difference between paying your dues and self-abasement, but you wouldn’t know it from this overstuffed and joyless film. With Demetri Martin. _Andrea Gronvall

CapsuLe revIews XXW THE GRANDMASTER | 2013

| Wong Kar-wai’s long-gestating biopic about martial arts legend Ip Man (1893-1972) is sumptuously designed and full of characteristically poetic effects, but it’s also dramatically inert and difficult to follow. The US release version, which is roughly 20 minutes shorter than the one that played in China, is particularly confusing — in his effort to streamline the history for American viewers, Wong has made the movie resemble the sort of conventional period spectacle he clearly had no interest in making. The biggest disappointment may be that Wong, for all his genius in capturing fleeting sensations, seems adrift when it comes to presenting kung fu. The action choreography (by the great Yuen Woo-ping) feels oddly rhythmless; likewise, Wong’s depictions of the larger-than-life characters achieve little emotional resonance. With Tony Leung and

Zhang Ziyi. In subtitled Mandarin and Cantonese. | 108m |

XXX THE SPECTACULAR NOW

| 2013 | Tim Tharp’s lauded youngadult novel forms the basis for this nuanced and unsentimental coming-of-age film directed by James Ponsoldt (Smashed), from a screenplay by partners Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber (500 Days of Summer). Miles Teller stands out as a charming high school senior with little ambition but a large capacity for alcohol; he bobs along like driftwood on a whiskey sea until he befriends the class wallflower, who helps him with math. In return he tutors her in distilled spirits, and a romance gradually develops. Shailene Woodley is heartbreaking as the naive new girlfriend, and Kyle Chandler is indelible as the boy’s long-lost, wasted dad, the proverbial tree from which the apple falls. | 95m |

XXX THE WORLD’S END | 2013 | Director Edgar Wright reunites with actors Simon Pegg and Nick Frost to tell the story of five high school friends who embark on a marathon pub crawl, only to learn that the quaint village where they grew up has been taken over by evil robots. The film is in direct step with Wright’s Shaun of the Dead (2004) and Hot Fuzz (2007) (together, the three form the socalled Cornetto Trilogy), particularly in the way genre contextualizes rather than dictates the narrative. At its core the movie is a downer, a decidedly dark drama about delusion, addiction, and disappointment; somehow, these gloomy themes gel perfectly with the comic-book quirks that make the film so damn entertaining. The comedic skill of Pegg, Frost, and their costars has a lot to do with that, but most of the credit belongs to Wright, whose chaotic style belies the film’s meticulous construction. | 109m |

With the moon waxing, it is time to “bring in the sheaves.” This week, focus on activities involving travel (and all kinds of movement, including your vehicle), and careerbuilding. Is there some seminar, gathering, or networking event planned? Go — you don’t know what you’ll find. The weekend is useful for writing — or for building a concrete structure. And speaking as a writer, I can tell you those two actions are more closely connected than you might think. (And then there’s that part of writing which involves hitting your head against that concrete wall . . .)

Waxing moon in capricorn, moon void-of-course 7:17 pm until 8:05 am sunday, Yom Kippur. not the best day for revision or “final” versions. An excellent day for taking a long time to get a job done. Awkward interactions for cancer, Aries, Leo, and Libra. capricorn, virgo, taurus, and Aquarius: stick to your guns, but don’t be too self-protective. others may have useful leads or ideas. Why not take advantage? sagittarius, taurus, scorpio, and pisces: do the boring stuff. 24

First quarter moon in sagittarius, moon void-of-course 1:08 pm until 6:56 am Friday when it moves into capricorn. A turning point for projects begun at the end of August. Another excellent day for evaluating educational prospects, planning a long trip, or taking the kind of pratfall that would earn applause from charlie chaplin (pisces, virgo, Gemini, and cancer). entrepreneurial urges are strong, particularly for sagittarius, Aries, Leo, and capricorn. Libra, Aquarius, taurus, and scorpio: your “maverick” side comes out. 9

Waxing moon in Aquarius. excellent day for a medical appointment, or getting advice on building (capricorn moons rule concrete, structure, fence posts...). capricorn, if you’re still stuck in a job you wanted to leave last summer, consider a “personal” day. Aquarius, Libra, Gemini, and pisces: new ideas are best. be ruthless about your independence. taurus, scorpio, Leo, and virgo: feeling scattered is normal — i give you permission to flake out. 12

Waxing moon in Aquarius, moon voidof-course 4:19 am until 9:58 am tuesday. A fine day for being social and launching strange and quirky new initiatives. those who are fashion-forward will want to push all boundaries to the edge of the sartorial universe (yes, this is fun!). in tune with the moon, if a little scattered and spacey: Aquarius, Gemini, Libra, sagittarius, Aries. easily vexed, and likely to overtext: scorpio, Leo, taurus. irked if rushed: capricorn, pisces, cancer, and virgo. 13

Waxing moon in pisces. Another good day for socializing or bonding over shared enthusiasm for the downtrodden. spiritual matters (or paranoia) beckon, particularly for virgo, Gemini, sagittarius, and Libra. not a great time to get firm answers, but excellent for being in touch with troubled friends, or “worst-case scenarios” (pisces, scorpio, cancer, and Aries). taurus, capricorn, Leo, and Aquarius: being “drifty” is okay. 14

Wednesday september 18

Waxing moon in pisces, sukkot begins. plans change, and it’s easy to take a dim view of prospects, so virgo, Gemini, sagittarius, and Libra may need to be mindful of fleeting anxieties. but it’s an excellent day for photographers or those who enjoy crafting with images rather than words. Whim could afflict pisces, scorpio, cancer, and Aries. taurus, capricorn, Leo, and Aquarius: you could be seeing a “worst case” scenario. Keep your head high. 15

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.
