FROM THE EDITOR: VICTORIA G. MOLINAR comment: @whatsupweekly For those of you who might be learning about this for the first time, Best of the Best, What’s Up’s readers’ choice contest, was split into four sections this year. Winners of the third round, Around Town, are now up online, so that leaves us with our last section – Border Eats. If there’s one thing that unites us in the borderland, it’s our love for food. Sure, feuds might erupt when discussing whether Tex Mex is an insult to Mexican cuisine or not, and the battle between vegetarians, vegans and meat lovers can seem as if it’ll never end, but at the end of the day, the need to eat surpasses taste buds and culinary values. So on Sept. 22, I invite you to visit WhatsUpPub.com and nominate your favorite restaurants and chefs in plenty of categories. We’re still smoothing those categories out at the moment, but I can guarantee you’ll see some new ones, including more that recognize the abundance of Mexican dishes El Paso has to offer.

WARPED TOUR 2017 ADDS NON-PROFITS AND WORKSHOPS TO THE MIX By Andrea Sandoval comment: @whatsupweekly
After three years, the Warped Tour finally returned to Las Cruces last Tuesday, Aug. 1. From punk bands like CKY and Adolescents, to metal bands like Alestorm and GWAR, more than 80 bands performed across seven stages. There was also a lot to do aside from the sets. The Entertainment Institute, a national education platform, hosted workshops led by rock stars and music industry professionals. Elizabeth Wilder of the charity To Write Love On Her Arms says that the inclusiveness at the event helps “grow and promote this sense of safeness in the sense of telling people that you can leave everything at the door and be who you want to be here.” W i l d e r manned the charity’s booth selling
merchandise while giving more information about the organization. “We’re a mental health non-profit dedicated to helping people struggling with addiction, depression, self-injury, and suicide,” Wilder explained. “We’re not counselors, but we’d like to call ourselves that bridge to that help.” Despite the Warped Tour being known as a punk festival, the atmosphere was very welcoming towards newcomers and veterans. “It’s been a totally different experience. We’re, like, the only thrash band in the whole lineup,” said vocalist Tony Foresta of Municipal Waste. “But everybody has been very accepting and positive to us. We’ve been getting along great with the other bands. “We were very thankful and surprised by the turnout of today’s Warped Tour,” Foresta continued. “We’re going to try and come back during a headlining tour for our new album [‘Slime and Punishment’].” There’s no word yet on whether the Warped Tour will be returning to Las Cruces in 2018 – but after a day full of high-energy sets, workshops, fun merch and plenty of space to chill and chow in the shade – I can at least say that the fest left this concertgoer satisfied.

9 TAKEAWAYS FROM THE NATIONAL CLIMATE REPORT By Henry Fountain and Nadja Popovich (New York Times) comment: @whatsupweekly
A 2017 scientific report on climate change obtained by The New York Times, part of a regular federal climate assessment, shows that warming is already having a large effect on the United States. The final draft report was conducted by scientists from 13 federal agencies, including the National Science Foundation and NASA Headquarters, and is awaiting approval by the Trump Administration. Here are some takeaways based on the report: 1. It’s hot out there. It is getting warmer everywhere, but in the contiguous United States, the West is warming the fastest. While temperatures in the country (excluding Alaska and Hawaii) have increased an average of 1.2 degrees Fahrenheit since 1900, the Southwest and the Northwest, as well as the Northern Great Plains, have seen a temperature increase of 1.5 degrees or more. A degree and a half may not seem like much, but even slight changes in temperature can have widespread effects. The report said that heat waves and droughts had reached record intensities in some parts of the country. But the Dust Bowl of the 1930s remains the benchmark for heat and drought in American history, by virtue of the area involved and how long it lasted. 2. Wetter hurricanes in the East. While it is not certain that the frequency of intense hurricanes will increase, hurricanes that do occur will bring more rainfall than ever and could potentially be more destructive. 3. Bad news for California. Warming will probably bring further reductions in winter and spring snowpack, which the state depends on for much of its water supply. If greenhouse-gas emissions remain high and few steps are undertaken to better manage water resources, chronic long-lasting shortages – or hydrological drought – are possible by 2100. 4. When it rains, it pours more. Americans are already experiencing

more extreme precipitation. The amount of precipitation that falls in the heaviest storms is higher across the country, when storms from the last three decades are compared to storms from 1900 to 1960. The change has been highest in the Northeast, where 27 percent more rain falls in the worst storms. 5. Flooding related to sea-level rise is a problem already. Tidal flooding that is already occurring in places like Miami and Norfolk, Virginia, will get worse throughout the century and affect cities on both coasts. By the end of the century, for example, parts of Charleston, South Carolina, may flood at high tide nearly every day. Low-lying parts of San Francisco are also extremely vulnerable, too, and are expected to have frequent flooding. 6. Some areas will suffer more from rising seas. Sea-level rise is expected to be worse
in the Northeast and along the Gulf of Mexico, in part because the land in those regions is naturally subsiding. It is expected to be less of a problem in the Pacific Northwest and Alaska. Ocean circulation patterns, salinity and other factors can also influence how large the seal-level increase will be. 7. El Niño isn’t forever. Recurring natural shifts in atmospheric patterns can affect temperature and precipitation from months to years. The recent El Niño, for example, contributed to making 2015 and 2016 the warmest years on record. But such natural variability, the report said, has little influence on global or regional climate trends over periods of a decade or more. 8. Humans are to blame. The federal report left no doubt as to responsibility for a warming climate: “It is extremely likely that human influence has been the dominant cause of the observed
warming since the mid-20th century.” There are no convincing alternative explanations supported by the observational evidence, the report said. 9. Be ready for surprises in the future. The report said that through greenhouse-gas emissions and widespread deforestation, humans were conducting an “unprecedented experiment” with the climate system. Although climate modeling has gotten more sophisticated, no model can capture all the elements of the Earth’s complex climate. The report warned there was a “significant possibility” of climate surprises in the future, either compound events, where two or more extreme events occur simultaneously, or tipping point events where some threshold in the climate system is crossed. The more the climate is changed – the more emissions continue or increase – the greater the risk of such surprises, the report said.
KAPPY’S CORNER By Steve Kaplowitz / Comment: @whatsupweekly
July 18, 1997 – That day was a significant one in my radio career since I was about to inherit the hosting duties of “SportsTalk.” Jon Teicher – who had been the man in charge of El Paso’s only daily local sports radio show since 1992 – had just signed with another radio station group, and he was going to be calling UTEP games on another AM station. In those days, his UTEP contract was tied into the radio station that broadcast UTEP games, so he would no longer be able to host “SportsTalk” with Duke Keith. At that same time, I was hosting Crunchtime on Saturday mornings with Robert Garcia while working on KLAQ with Buzz Adams. Our general manager, Brad Dubow, asked me if I would be interested in taking over as host of “SportsTalk” and replace Jon. For me, that was the easiest decision I have made in my 22-year radio career. I jumped at the opportunity and was at Speaking Rock for Jon’s last broadcast. That day was a special one. Among Teicher’s guests was UTEP men’s basketball coach Don Haskins, who had worked with him for more than 15 years. At the end of the show, Jon asked me to join him at his broadcast table so he could pass the torch to me and allow me to finish the last five minutes of “SportsTalk.” Little did I realize at the time that I would still be doing the same job after 20 years. As I look back on that day and nearly 5,000 shows since then, I am appreciative of all the people who I have worked with. People like Keith, Garcia, Mando “The Monster” Medina, Andy Quintana, Jeff Flynt, Quinton Martinez, Andy Lee, Chad Middleton, Mike Tipton, Brandon Cohn and Sal Montes. I have always kept the show formula simple: provide compelling talk radio that encompasses both local and national sports topics. Social media has been a game changer for two reasons. First, we can now get our news the minute a story breaks and talk about it in real time. Second, listeners now can participate in the show through Twitter and Facebook rather than just by calling into the show. It makes talk radio much more of a digital medium than it used to be back in the days when we relied on an AP Wire to get our sports news. UTEP sports is still the number one topic on local sports radio, but Miners fans do not seem to be nearly as engaged with the football and men’s basketball programs as they have been in past years. Winning can solve a lot of these problems, as evidenced by Mike Price’s back-toback eight-win bowl seasons and UTEP’s last three NCAA Tournament teams with Billy Gillispie, Doc Sadler and Tony Barbee. Those talk shows always felt like they could last forever since fans wanted to relive every special moment. El Paso Chihuahuas baseball and Rhinos hockey have experienced that same level of success in
recent years, and their fans have been just as passionate on the radio. Football season is right around the corner and that means plenty of interest in our local high schools as well as the Dallas Cowboys. Although I get a good number of calls from many NFL diehards, nothing compares to the fan interest for America’s Team in El Paso. Time has flown by since my first “SportsTalk” show in the summer of 1997 and I can’t wait to see what the next 20 years brings us. ___ Since 1997, Steve Kaplowitz has hosted “Sportstalk” weekday afternoons 4-7 p.m. on 600 ESPN El Paso. Over the last 17 years, he has also worked for UTEP and NMSU as a play-byplay broadcaster, for UTEP telecasts on Time Warner Cable and for KDBC-TV and KTSM-TV as a sports anchor/reporter. You can contact Steve by emailing him at email@example.com.

FIXED IDEA CELEBRATES 25 YEARS OF CHUCO SKA
Over the years, Fixed Idea has seen around 50 band members. Saturday’s show will unite past and present members. Photos provided by Pancho Mendoza

know what ska was,” Mendoza said. “I wanted to incorporate that, but we didn’t even have horns.” The band quickly found some horn players and began to form the signature Fixed Idea sound. Mendoza said the last 25 years have been about not only making music, but the passion and sacrifice he and his band mates have willingly endured. He is a fulltime elementary music and art teacher and father. He’s also the band’s principal songwriter and manager. “There have been a lot of obstacles, and people give up when it’s too hard,” he said. “I’ve never given up.” Another constant in his life has been his six children. This Saturday, Fixed Idea will be joined onstage by Mendoza’s daughters Kaya on bass, Devinne on guitar and son River on vocals. Another Fixed Idea progeny will join the lineup: former Fixed Idea drummer Rick Rodriguez will perform along with his daughter Ivy on alto sax. The result is a past, present and future look at the band. Former member Jaime Candelaria will also join the anniversary celebration. He was the band’s bassist from 1999-2009 and was the replacement for Ernesto Tinajero, founder of local legends Radio La Chusma. For Candelaria, his days in Fixed Idea were a pivotal part of his musical career
From Lower Valley backyard party band to a local household name, seminal El Paso ska-punk legends Fixed Idea have been dropping their skankin’* hot jams since 1992. We’ll get to see different incarnations of the band for their 25th-anniversary show this Saturday, Aug. 12 at Tricky Falls. About 30 past and present members will unite on stage for a celebration of Fixed Idea’s iconic sounds, remarkable influence and a damn good time. While he was a sophomore at Ysleta High School, Pancho Mendoza formed the band to fill a much-needed niche. “We loved punk music when we were skate boarders in high school,” Mendoza said. “Since nobody was coming around, we had to do it ourselves; we had to create the scene.” In true do-it-yourself fashion, which has been a trademark of Fixed Idea since day one, Mendoza scoured the contacts in “Book Your Own F*ck*n’ Life,” a guidebook to booking agents, touring and other resources. As the band began to play bigger shows and move from house parties to the club circuit, their repertoire grew as well. Their debut record was 1996’s “Chuco Town,” release on seven-inch vinyl. “By then, the scene had grown and we Continued on 8 were packing backyards,” Mendoza recalled. “It took a bit of time to build up * the scene.” A key musical influence for Mendoza A style of dance you’ll typically see at was Operation Ivy, the band that put Ranska shows.

and a primer for networking and maneuvering within the club circuit. “By the end, I was doing all the booking for Fixed Idea,” he said. “So that’s definitely something that’s helped me with other bands.” Some of the highlights for Candelaria during his tenure with the band include opening for Rancid and The Slackers, hanging with vocalist Roco of Mexican ska group Maldita Vecindad and jamming with singer-songwriter Chris Murray. “The Juarez shows too,” he said. “The love we got there was f*ck*ng amazing.” Mendoza said he hopes Fixed Idea will keep going strong and that his kids will continue the legacy.

plans, a documentary and a songwriting project with Frontera Bugalu frontman Kiko Rodriguez are all in the works. Candelaria lauded the band’s endurance and Mendoza’s ability to stay the course. “It’s impressive and it shows a lot of persistence,” he said. “It’s been him 100 percent keeping it going.” WHAT’S UP

CHAMANAS TRANSCEND BARRIERS WITH ‘FRONTERIZO’ FUSION By Luis Carlos Lopez comment: @whatsupweekly
The Chamanas are an up-and-coming band who draw their roots from the binational region of Juárez and El Paso – a space filled with a transient culture that is rich with history and emergent peoples. Their music occupies no single genre. This Saturday, Aug. 12, locals can experience their unique tunes and latest album, “Nea,” at The Lowbrow Palace. Bassist Manuel Calderon said that their blend of pop and “Huasteca” fusion is creating a new sound – one that is indicative of daily life along the Rio Grande. “You get a fusion of a lot of cultures,” Calderon said. “Half of the band lives in Juárez, the other half lives in El Paso. That shapes the way you think, the way you live, the way you eat, the way you dance and everything you do – even the way you breathe.” The Chamanas will join Portugal. The Man for a few shows in Phoenix and at the Plaza Theatre on Oct. 13. New doors opened for The Chamanas after they covered the Portland rock band’s “Purple Yellow Red & Blue.” Everything about The Chamanas exudes border culture, including their name; chamán is the Spanish word for Continued on 10

shaman, while the “The” is a nod to the Spanglish often heard in the region. The group has developed a synergy that has captured fans from both sides of the border. Guitarist Hector Carreon will often write the lyrics and lay down the guitar riffs. Drummer Alejandro Bustillos infuses the songs with a rock flavor, while Calderon arranges the music to give it a unique sound that has come to identify the band as “fronteriza.” The youngest of the group is vocalist Paulina Reza, whose musical range has helped The Chamanas rise in popularity. In 2015, the band recorded their first album “Once Once” at the legendary Sonic Ranch studio, which has been used by artists and bands like Zoe, Molotov, Natalia Lafourcade and Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Their debut album received Best Pop Album honors at the Independent Music Awards in Mexico in 2016, along with a Latin Grammys nomination for Best New Artist. Influenced by the music of Rage Against the Machine, Motown artists and Spanish groups like Los Bukis, Calderon said The Chamanas’ music draws diverse crowds. “It’s like mariachi meets TV on the Radio,” he said. Calderon recalled a show at The Bomb Factory in Dallas when they opened for Beach House and unsuspecting concertgoers got a taste of The Chamanas. “I couldn’t see, but I could tell it was a packed house. I could feel it,” he said. “During the first song, they just stared at us waiting to see what would happen. By the end, they were all cheering and clapping.” Band manager Gerardo Alarcon said he hopes The Chamanas’ growing popularity helps establish a scene in El Paso. Like with Los Angeles, New York and Miami, he wants to see El Paso and Juárez become music hubs for emergent genres. “We want to help this grow and help promote bands that take this serious and put in the work,” Alarcon said. On a rainy Friday evening at El Paso’s Hillside Coffee & Donut Co., Calderon
and Alarcon sat down to talk about the band’s continuing success. Blaming the rain for his late arrival, Calderon compared the stop-and-go traffic at North Mesa to the traffic at the international bridges that join Downtown El Paso to Juárez. He quipped that “the rain dance” he performed the night before must have worked. “You are welcome,” he said, laughing at the notion that his effort to aid the arid desert might make it to print. Code-switching from English to Spanish, Calderon shared things about his childhood: living in Juárez and coming to El Paso for school, being affected firsthand by the drug violence that plagued Juárez a few years ago. The Chamanas’ latest album, “Nea,” is named after their late friend who fell victim to that violence. Calderon and Reza recently talked about their album on CNN en Español. “Everybody in the band lost someone to the violence,” Calderon said. “Nea was part of our staff. We lost him to the violence last October. A lot of our friends have been killed or ended up in jail.” Despite such dark and turbulent times, Calderon said he and his band choose to stay positive. With their influence growing, he also said that there will be times when the band might become activists, but maintained that the primary role of their music is to heal. “Sometimes, we take a lot of things for granted and things like violence give you a different perspective. That’s why we wanted to make this record and offer it as an honor and tribute to them,” Calderon said about friends and loved ones who were victims to violence. “We like to talk about the life part of it – the healing part of it.”

‘JAWS’ STAR RICHARD DREYFUSS ON GOD, DRUGS AND MINDFULNESS By Denise Nelson-Prieto comment: @whatsupweekly
Richard Dreyfuss was catapulted to success with films like “Jaws” and “Close Encounters of the Third Kind” in the 1970s. He garnered his first major accolade with a Golden Globe and Oscar for Best Actor for the 1977 drama “The Goodbye Girl.” In a world where actors come and go like yesterday’s news, Dreyfuss has proven his talents, drive and artistic scope time and again for the last 50 years. He will bring some of that magic to the Plaza Classic Film Festival during an on-stage interview before the showing of “Jaws” on Saturday, Aug. 12 and before “Mr. Holland’s Opus” on Sunday, Aug. 13. Dreyfuss will also be signing autographs from 1-2:30 p.m. Aug. 12 at the El Paso Community Foundation Room. What’s Up got down to brass tacks with Dreyfuss during a recent phone interview. What are you working on currently? I am preparing to do a film in September and I’m writing a book at the moment about civic authority and teaching it to the young. What’s the Dreyfuss Initiative? We no longer teach what we must teach our young, so they don’t know how to run a complex government. It’s important we understand the Constitution and the Bill of Rights and get that thoroughly in kids’ hearts. We created the expectation of due process. Let’s talk about being an actor. Do you think your roles in films like “Jaws,” “Close Encounters of the Third Kind” and “American Graffiti” put Richard Dreyfuss on the map? Sure. So why did you turn down roles for their sequels? Because I thought they were destined to be terrible, as sequels almost always are. Do you regret turning down any roles? I do have a small list of films that I regret not doing, but that list will never come out of my lips. Those films are not part of it; I have absolutely no regrets about not doing those sequels. In an article, I read that you said, “[My] body of work truly reflects my principles.” I never did a movie for money – only until I came back out of retirement and had to continue working. I had to support my family. I have no regrets about that. During the course of my whole career, I think the films I did – whether they were successful or popular or not – were films I was proud of. I may have played a whole bunch of Republican villains in my life, but they were not celebratory of the character. To

play General [Alexander] Haig or [former Vice President Dick] Cheney, I never had to break any principles. I had no trouble identifying with Cheney; all I had to do was find him in me and bring it out. It’s not as simple as that, of course. Cheney was actually quite easy to play. I understood him. He had one overriding desire, ambition, and I have known that feeling in myself. Can you explain the process? It’s a willingness to accept a point of view. I’ve said to young actors, “Inside all of us is Hitler and Jesus, and our obligation is to find the appropriate Hitler and find the appropriate Jesus.” Why do you “want to hit God in the face” when you die? I have a short list and rarely have had to add to it. [They’re] complaints that start with the third act of human life, which consists of the imposition of humiliation, pain, distortion of brainpower, and ultimately – coincidentally, at the moment where one might achieve wisdom – you die. I think it’s unfair. I think, “God, if he is what everyone says he is – I don’t think he really is – I’m gonna hit him right in the mouth, because he deserves it, and he needs therapy!”
Can you talk about the trouble you had in the ’80s? I’m a product of that generation that thought of the experience of drugs was akin to the Lewis and Clark expedition. When I realized it was controlling me, then it became icky and took me a long time to get out of it. There was actually a point in my life when something real bad happened, which was so bad for me, that did affect my work. That was when my first marriage ended. I was so screwed up and unhappy that it affected my ability to work on a number of films, which when I look at them – no matter what anyone else says – I know I was trapped, imprisoned by my depression. Tell me about Mr. Holland from “Mr. Holland’s Opus.” At the beginning, he’s clearly a musician with few options. He ends up loving what he does. He’s a person who learns that this affect he has on people has really been wide and deep. One of the great things about that film is that for whatever reason, the extras – which at times were about 1,000 people – the crew and the cast all bonded together in a way that I had never known before. Making it was an emotional experience that was fantastic. It was so emotionally rich, and it covered so many areas – a film I’m very, very happy I made. Was there a lot of that chemistry making “The Goodbye Girl?” Absolutely. So much so that it kind of spoiled me. I thought that was the way it was always going to be. Was it a gradual process realizing it wasn’t that way? (Laughs.) Oh no, it was right away! The actress Illeana Douglas described you as one of the best onscreen thinkers she’s ever seen and she described the process in a scene from
Jaws. Was that Richard or your character Matt Hooper? It’s Richard, but it’s also the roles because I try to pick roles that have that. When I did “American Graffiti,” George Lucas actually offered me Charlie Martin Smith’s role or the role of Curt, and I took Curt because he’s self-aware. That’s what I love about Curt and that’s what I love about most of the characters I play; they have some kind of true self-awareness. Some of them have an awareness that’s dishonest. They all are thinkers. Would you change anything about your life? There are a couple of things I would change, but I’m not going to tell you what they are. For the most part, I’m very proud of the fact that – mistakes and all – I made the decisions I made, and I made the decisions of my life. I’ve lived the life I was intended to live, and I feel I was blessed to live it.

WATCH EL PASO MURALS COME TO LIFE WITH THE HELP OF AN APP By Victoria G. Molinar/ comment: @whatsupweekly
aking art accessible to people from all walks of life, murals stop passers-by in their tracks. Questions that often come to mind include, “Who did this mural?” and “What’s the message behind it?” This Saturday, Aug. 12, many of those questions will be answered thanks to the exhibit, “Expanded: Murals Enhanced with Augmented Reality.” Going down at Fab Lab El Paso, attendees will see the murals come to life with the help of the Augment El Paso app and a grant from the Museums and Cultural Affairs Department. Photos of five murals will be at the lab, where people can use smart phones or tablets to frame the image, tap the screen and watch the murals move. Some of the murals include sound, and all of them will feature pop-up screens with artist biographies. The app works at the mural sites as well. “You’ll see the serpents in ‘Omecoatl – Twin Sepents’ breathing, pulsating and

roaring when you tap on the screen,” Augment EP founder David Figueroa said about one of Gabriel Gaytan’s murals located at Lincoln Park. Muralist Jesus “Cimi” Alvarado said he was excited to see that music was incorporated into the augmentation of his large piece, “Barrio Soul.” Adorning one side of a corner store at 523 S. Campbell Street and 4th Avenue, the piece plays homage to the late El Paso radio legend Steve Crosno as well as local bands of the ’50s-’70s like The Nite-Dreamers and The El Paso Drifters. “You’ll be able to hear some of the songs each band used to play,” Alvarado said. “I would like to be there all the time to tell people about that mural, but with the Augment app, people can learn more about it on their own.” Figueroa said each mural took at least one month to augment. “There was so much content to work with, and we really wanted to do each mural justice,” Figueroa explained.

includes Robert Castaneda, Romi Adams, Gary Adams, John Estrada, Esteban Rubio and Roy Portillo. But despite the advanced software and countless hours it took to augment each mural, Figueroa said the end result made all the meticulous steps worth it. “I feel this work is important because it gets the viewer’s imagination going, gets them to start thinking about new possibilities and reconnects them to their surroundings,” he said. “I also feel it’s adding to the uniqueness of El Paso, because this really isn’t being done anywhere else.” Make Your Mark: Sign the Last Piece of Rail The Camino Real Regional Mobility Authority will have markers and paint pens handy so you can sign the very last piece of rail before it’s installed.

which aims to link people with not only a place to lay their heads at night, but also educational, medical and mental health services and substance abuse programs. “We’ve created a facility that draws people to us,” Martin said. “In doing this, we have the ability to tap them into the services we have available.” Past Homerun for the Homeless events generated approximately $110,000. Martin said he expects the event to net at least $30,000 this year. More than 300 people have signed up for the run, but he pointed out El Paso’s “last-minute” philosophy and hopes to have nearly 500 participants for the event. The first 300 registrants will receive a race packet that includes a T-shirt, a participation medal and tickets to that night’s El Paso Chihuahuas game. The kids’ dash takes place on the field at Southwest University Park. Joining the participants will be Chico the Chihuahua, Paydirt Pete, Willie the Waterdrop and many more Sun City mascots.
