e here in the WoMag office don’t run around town looking for trouble as a means of producing compelling stories. Sure, certain members of our staff do wild things like calling MassDOT to ask if it is concerned with the environmental impact of CSX’s expansion (see page 4) and others are willing to give Zombieobsessed college professors their home phone numbers (see page 19). But ultimately we’re just a normal collection of journalists trying to make it in this world. But even the strictest standards can’t keep editorial interns from venturing into parts of town we either didn’t know existed or are too afraid to go into. Such was the case recently, when intern/reporter Lauren McShane embarked on an adventure to Revolution Dance & Fitness Complex for a few sessions of “pole fitness� and came away with a story we thought deserved more space. McShane’s experience was emblematic of many women attending such classes – a (mostly) smooth ride through the emotions associated with taking on a stripper pole, doing your thing and coming out a more confident woman because of it. And if you talk to her, she’ll be sure to mention the considerable workout. Such alternative forms of exercise are becoming more and more common these days, so we researched other ways that people are keeping their heart rates up, their bodies strong and their minds sound, all while doing something less like work. From rock climbing to boot camp to yoga and pilates, there are plenty of health and fitness options out there that can take on a bigger – and affecting – role in one’s life. And for those who need a little more excitement, there’s always the lure of the pole...

Environmental concern?

Questions lacking about environmental impacts of CSX expansion Jeremy Shulkin

T

here have been many subplots to come out of CSX’s forthcoming expansion of its rail yard and freight operations in Worcester. Some of the most notable have been the thought of a Putnam Lane bridge, the probability of expanded commuter rail and increased truck traffic down Grafton Street. One angle, though, has been surprisingly quiet: the environmental impact of the project. CSX’s plan to double its footprint in the center of Worcester from 28 acres to 51 acres and relocate the bulk of its container shipping to the area – a move that will increase diesel truck traffic and increase number of trains rolling through the city – could be a potential nightmare for environmental advocates. “Constituents in my district have raised the issue of an environmental impact study,” says District 2 City Councilor Phil Palmieri, who chairs the Public Health and Human Services subcommittee and is a member of the joint committee leading meetings between the city, CSX and the Massachusetts Department of Transportation. Palmieri also filed a motion seeking an “environmental impact statement within a two mile radius of Worcester rail yards and railroad lines and the impacts to the public’s health” from private rail companies and MassDOT at last week’s city council meeting, but it’s unclear when those results will come back to the council or how detailed they will be. District 4 Councilor Barbara Haller, also a member of the Public Health and Human Services subcommittee, has also publicly called for more environmental information, citing diesel exhaust as a trigger for a myriad of health problems, including childhood asthma, at a May

17 joint subcommittee meeting with representatives from MassDOT and CSX. “It’s somewhat surprising that we haven’t had significant responses yet,” says Palmieri. “There should be an appropriate answer that reassures our community that there’s no health risk.” But concerns have been met with little organized support from environmental groups and state watchdogs, allowing blasé responses from those in charge of the project – which includes some of those same watchdogs. At that same meeting, Maurice O’Connell, vice president of public affairs for CSX, countered Haller’s diesel question with, “The overall plan has been put together to improve the environmental impact .. when we put this plan together we did the very best to minimize the impacts.” But CSX and MassDOT officials went mum when Haller pressed if a Massachusetts idling engine law applied to locomotives, with seemingly no one knowing the answer. A report was asked from the city solicitor to find out if they were subject

to the law. But, as passed on by Becky Smith of environmental group Clean Water Action, locomotives clearly fall under state clean air laws: “Massachusetts law prohibits motor vehicle idling in excess of 5 minutes and locomotive idling in excess of 30 min,” as written in the Massachusetts General Laws, which adds that, “Local agencies are authorized to enforce (as well as DEP, and if necessary, EPA) but communities are probably better off developing their own authorized local idling regulations to simplify enforcement.” Essentially, the state gives a guideline, but the city would have the flexibility to enforce stricter rules. Bob Sullivan, a spokesman for CSX, writes via e-mail that little opposition has materialized because “CSX has established and works consistently to build upon a solid record of responsible environmental stewardship.” He points to an 80-percent fuel efficiency in its locomotives and $1 billion spent on

Parking stall Debate, technicalities hinder valet parking motion

other parking petition, such as for handicapped spots. “I haven’t heard any valid reason to oppose it,” says Smith. But City Councilors Paul Clancy and Barbara Haller have been the most vocal opponents of the ordinance as it stands now, with Clancy recently saying he saw a “lack of process” in the drafting of the ordinance to be voted on. He contends there should be a specific ordinance solely for valet parking. At a June 1 council meeting, Clancy noted that the ordinance should come first from the administration, then the specific piece of legislation should be voted on by the council – not the other way around. “It shouldn’t be developed in committee first,” Clancy said, “then come to council and ask us to pass it when it hasn’t even gone through administration yet. When has that ever happened?” He also bluntly said that this petition shouldn’t be about who’s filing a petition, and “who we want to do favors for.” Haller has also added her criticisms to the measure. She originally held the legislation at a past meeting so an absent Clancy could weigh in later on, and has voiced concerns that valet companies in her district have been using city property for parking without permission. For now the debate over valet parking continues, and the proposal has been sent to City Solicitor David Moore in order to draft a more specific ordinance. Smith hopes to have a final version for the council to vote on for the June 15 meeting. He does think repercussions could come from all these delays, though, especially for a city looking to show how “business friendly” it is. “This doesn’t send a good message to businesses,” he says.

A

t first glance there should be nothing notable about a petition to add valet parking areas downtown and on Shrewsbury Street, namely in front of The Citizen, Il Forno, Cigar Masters, Bocado, Mezcal and what was formerly City Park Grill, but after seeing the item on the City Council’s agenda for months and withstanding multiple motions to hold it for further discussion, debate has started to get ugly. The petition first appeared on the March 2, 2010 agenda, but as of the June 8 meeting it had yet to go up for a vote in front of the entire council. “It’s kind of baffling to me,” says City Councilor Joff Smith, who filed the motion on behalf of valet services in the city (although Jonathan Koop, president of S&K Valet is the only businessman named). “The problem stemmed with these valet services having nowhere to park in front of restaurants,” continues Smith, adding that this posed a safety risk because cars would park in the middle of the street to exchange drivers. These restaurants already have valet services, but the new ordinance would provide an area for cars to pull off to the side of the road. Koop agrees that it’s a safety issue, and the 20 restaurants in the city where S&K valets all agree that it’s difficult for them to do business without space allotted for this purpose. Even more confusing to Smith is that the petition passed the traffic and parking subcommittee and received a favorable report from Department of Public Works Commissioner Robert Moylan, whose operations oversee parking in the city. Although Worcester currently has no parking ordinance specific to valet parking, Smith contends that accepting his motion wouldn’t change any other current ordinance already in the city’s books, and any petition for a valet -Amount of money in the $23 million zone would be handled mitigation fund from CSX to the city going by the Traffic and Parking subcommittee just like any towards a Putnam Lane replacement.

upgrading its locomotive fleet to meet EPA standards. As for idling, he says that, “72 percent of CSX’s locomotive fleet is equipped with anti-idling technology.” That covers the trains, but what about the increase in diesel trucks? Truck traffic is expected to increase to an estimated 500 trips daily in and out via I-290. State agencies have been slow to develop any kind of concern over any kind of pollution from the project. A spokesman for the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection said that there’s not any kind of review of the expansion scheduled right now, but CSX filed a notification about its plans with the state’s Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs. That group did not get back to Worcester Mag before press time to say what kind of review would take place.

{ worcesteria } THREE ITEMS ON JOFF SMITH AND ALL I GOT WAS THIS CONFUSING WRITE UP: While voting on two ACLU petitions at Tuesday’s city council meeting that would allow a public forum for addressing the council before each meeting as well as ensure that petitioners would have the opportunity to speak when their item came up, Councilor Joff Smith’s five minute absence loomed large as the suddenly 10-member council split 5-5 on whether or not a public forum was necessary. Smith came back into the chamber, but debate raged over whether or not he could add a vote after the initial voting. After tempers flared and multiple rules were invoked, the matter was sent to solicitor David Moore for his ruling about how to count Smith’s vote, which will come at a later date. After the meeting Smith quoted Moore, saying that this was a “gray area” and Moore will have to make a decision on whether or not he’ll get to vote. Smith declined to comment on why he missed voting and how he would have voted … Adding more drama to this, the petitioner was Ronal Madnick, who recently announced his independent candidacy for the district 13 state representative seat – the same position Smith is running for as a Democrat … This weekend WCRN host Gary Rosen was able to get Smith to say that if he makes it through the primary and wins the D13 seat in November, then he’ll give up his city council seat (which, by law, he doesn’t have to do). Smith confirmed this with us on Tuesday, but that would mean Worcester’s first district wouldn’t have a specific representative on the council until the next election in November of 2011. Smith is concerned about this too. “That would have to get vetted out to make sure D1 would have proper representation,” he added.

THREE WINNERS?: Going into last weekend’s state Democratic convention, Worcester County Sheriff and State Auditor candidate Guy Glodis was definitely one of the most watched figures who many thought was the favorite to win delegates among his three-way race. Instead Suzanne Bump edged Glodis by 18 votes, but each captured 37 percent of the delegates, followed by Mike Lake who took home 25 percent. All sides saw victory in their results, with Glodis pointing out that the convention leaned toward the more liberal Bump’s base, and Bump saying Glodis’ fundraising numbers and home-field advantage should have pushed him over the top. Lake just seemed stunned to have done so well … Reports from Boston Phoenix news writer David Bernstein, who wrote a fairly critical article on Glodis leading up to the primary, tweeted that Glodis instructed some of his delegates to vote for Lake to ensure a three person race in the primary – something that has been heavily denied online by both Glodis’ and Lake’s staffers and supporters.

WHAT ABOUT THAT OTHER GUY?: Not everyone was

enthused about the convention this weekend. Republican candidate for treasurer and current Shrewsbury State Rep. Karyn Polito sent out a press release congratulating Steve Grossman for handily winning the Democratic nomination for treasurer, but added “I also believe he is too compromised by partisan party politics to fulfill the watchdog functions of the Treasurer’s Office.” Notably, Polito didn’t mention anything about Steve Murphy, the Boston councilman who barely squeaked onto the Democratic primary ballot with 15.6 percent of delegates voting for him. Guess we know who she’s more concerned about.

Report

For the Children? Gary Rosen any years ago, after I graduated from Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI), I began my public school teaching career at Doherty Memorial High School. I was excited, proud and quite thankful to get that first teaching job at Worcester's newest and premiere high school. Unfortunately, my dad couldn't hide his disappointment that, after all the money we had invested in my college education, I had chosen teaching for my profession. It was painful to hear him ask why anyone would want to try to teach and reach high school students, many of whom he saw as incorrigible and irresponsible. And, he reminded me, most of my WPI classmates had accepted much higher-paying jobs in business and industry. I remember telling my dad that wages, benefits and working conditions for teachers would be improving because we were represented by the union. Three-way membership in the National Education Association (NEA), the Massachusetts Teachers Association (MTA) and the Educational Association of Worcester (EAW) was mandatory. Surely all three would be looking out for me. As a city teacher for the next 17 years, I was a vocal, active and sometimes hot-headed member of the EAW. I saw some school committee members as ineffective and oblivious to the daily challenges faced by city teachers. And, like most of my union colleagues, I felt that taxpayers could, should and would always dig deeper. My years at Doherty were followed by teaching jobs at Wachusett Regional and West Boylston High Schools. I even became the president of the West Boylston Teachers Association and, prior to my retirement, helped to negotiate a very good contract for the teachers of that town. But my years of teaching and union activity also have been supplemented by extensive public service as an elected member of both the Worcester School Committee and the City Council. Most teachers never have an opportunity to serve in elective office and to look at teaching, its wages, benefits and working conditions from the perspective of management and the taxpayers. I did have that opportunity and it has changed my views dramatically. I never will lose my respect and appreciation for the wonderful work that our teachers do every day in their classrooms. So many of the children who sit before them lack involved parents, are not properly supervised at home, live in poverty, are transient and do not come to school prepared and eager to learn. At the same time, teachers must also cope with the ill-advised efforts of bureaucrats and politicians whose rules and laws are turning teaching into little more than preparation for a test. The low MCAS test scores of so many needy children now threaten their teachers with job loss. Have we gone mad? But in spite of all the aforementioned challenges and injustices faced by teachers, I do not support the current approach of their union, the EAW, to negotiate a new contract to replace the one that ended in August, 2009. While residential and commercial property owners and taxpayers are just trying to survive and provide for their families, the new Presidentelect of the EAW, Len Zalauskas, recently addressed the City Council and its many TV viewers. To the applause of several educators in the audience, Mr. Zalauskas showed very poor judgement in suggesting that property taxes should be increased because, “Worcester's teachers need raises.” What ever happened to being tactful?

Letters A demand granted Honestly. I don’t even know where to start right now. I have had a problem with your magazine for a long time in regard to the fact that nobody has interviewed me for the “Two Minutes With...” section yet. I’m sorry, but I am pretty sure your readers are anxious to spend a couple minutes reading about a 28-year-old waitress who is obsessed with animals dressed like people and Abraham Lincoln. However, I always put this issue aside because the Jonesin’ crossword is so awesome. It’s the best crossword around. And when I saw that you dummies had replaced it with that crappy puzzle from USA Today, I nearly dropped dead. Let me just tell you about a typical day since nobody actually knows me. After spending hours upon hours sitting in class and waitressing, I like to swing by Price Chopper on my way home. This is where I pick up all of the ingredients needed to enjoy Hamburger Helper’s Crunchy Taco dinner, and many gallons of ice cream. I grab Worcester Magazine on my way out so I can do the crossword while I eat dinner in bed with my basset hound and watch Lifetime Movies. You’re probably thinking, “Wow, Jen Pacillo is really living the dream. She has everything anybody could ever want. Who

And Mr. Zalauskas, who has an education and background in labor relations, chose to make that statement on the same day that the salaries of all city employees were made public. Many of those salaries, including those of some teachers, raised the ire of the people whose tax dollars pay the bills in this city. Even worse, the EAW was asking for raises minutes after the City Council had a contentious debate on the need to increase taxes for smoother streets and sidewalks. Talk about bad timing! Even more upsetting, the EAW still refuses to pay an additional 5 percent for their health insurance (from 20 to 25 percent employee contribution rate). I think it's time for teachers to agree to pay the extra 5 percent and still be thankful to the struggling

cares about a crossword puzzle?” Well I do OK? And I want it back. I want to know who the genius is that thought this was a good idea. I bet it’s the same genius who picks Armsby Abby for basically every single “Best of Worcester” category. But I let it go because of the crossword. Not anymore. I’m not trying to be over the top here, and I really don’t want to take this to the next level, but Worcester Magazine is going to land on my enemies list right between Henry Kissinger and Alexander Hamilton if Jonesin’ doesn’t make a fast return to your pages. And that is a real bad spot to be in. JE N PAC ILLO Worcester

Correction

In a recent cover story (“Dining Adventures in Wootown, issue of May 27) we incorrectly identified a friendly waitress as having won WoMag’s 2010 Best Of award for “Best Waitress.” That award went to Megan Mancini who we identified as having won the award multiple times, which is true.

taxpayers who so generously will pay the other 75 percent. In these tough economic times, with foreclosures and high unemployment, the wages and benefits of Worcester's teachers are actually pretty good. And if teachers can climb the ladder into school administration, they then will benefit from bloated salaries that most Worcester taxpayers can only dream of. So EAW, take it from one of your former members who has grown wiser with age and experience. The amazing work that teachers do in the classroom has always been “for the children.” However, times have changed. Now the amazing work that teachers do must also be “for the taxpayers.”

Posted by “Jeff Barnard” on WORMTOWNTAXI.COM: I had my fateful visit with the oncologist

yesterday afternoon. As I had already figured out, I now have stage IV melanoma which, in blunt terms, means I should plan on kissing my ass goodbye... On the other hand, of course, there’s always hope. I’ll be starting chemotherapy within the next few days, in the hope that by some fortunate draw against the odds, I might end up being one of those for whom this treatment actually works. There is definitely something oddly Kafkaesque about being in this situation. You can so easily witness other people getting cancer and, whether they survive it or not, still have no slightest idea what the experience of being diagnosed with cancer is like, personally. The metamorphosis from observer to participant is at once subtle, yet nightmarishly akin to being shunted immediately into an alternate universe where everyone else around you suddenly changes.

Posted by “Brother Menelik Ebna la-Hakim” on HULKHATETIMETRAVEL.COM: One of the first things you will notice about the film is the minimal amount of dialogue, this is due to the fact it’s a musical of sorts and the director really wants to let the music narrate. The movie revolves around a young rock star named Pink and his journey into psychosis. Gerald Scarfe provides 15 minutes worth of animation for the film that truly defines the experience. Watching Scarfe’s cartoon of the German bombing campaign over Europe set to Goodbye Blue Sky still gives me chills b! From a judge who is a giant pair of butt cheeks with an anus for a mouth and scrotum for chin to hammers gooses-stepping across the ruins, Scarfe’s genius is evident throughout the film.

Bob Geldof plays an excellent role of the main character Pink, especially during the transformation to his Neo-Nazi alter ego. Shaving his eyebrows and all the rest of his hair off his body, Pink bugs out and starts to think he’s like Adolf and his concerts are rallies. The Wall is up to the user to interpret, to me it’s the shield, protection we build upon ourselves, no matter how high or wide we may construct it inevitably all must come down. All in all you’re just another brick in the wall. HHTT APPROVED

Posted by “Gabe” on MY5SENSES. BLOGSPOT.COM: Worcester for most of it’s history prior to the industrial revolution was a small town. In the span of about 40 very quick years it became a city on the cusp of being a great American city. I-290, the GI bill, and white flight halted this practice in it’s tracks in the 50’s and 60’s and the entire city has been an exercise in futility ever since. The title of second largest city in New England plus the skyscrapers and other big city infrastructure has fooled Central Mass into having faith that this city should be something it isn’t and fooled New England and the rest of the outside world to expect this city to be something it just doesn’t have the capacity of becoming.

Add in the fact that the metropolitan area is absolutely tiny. Worcester has far less people coming into the city on a daily basis to use it’s services and amenities than Boston, Providence, Hartford, New Haven, Springfield, and Albany, and even Lowell. We like to compare ourselves to Providence but people can’t seem to grasp the idea that a Northeastern cities density and metropolitan area are what make it feel like a large city not it’s population.

Posted by “Sprout” on SPROUT-FLOWERS. COM: Bought 3 new planters for the front of the shop. I decided to go with a fiberglass type thing as opposed to the zinc like the already existing square planters. I learned the hard way that the zinc planters, while very cool looking, are easily dented and crushed by the bored for their amusement. After they’ve been crushed a few times, the metal seams start to give way and you’re left with some very sharp edges. I hope these last longer than the year and a half I got out of previous planters. I’ve also learned that you need to make any public planters darn heavy if you don’t want them tipped over for fun or worse, spirited away. I hope these are big and heavy enough.

It’sPOLE FITNESS notIS PARTwhat you think OF A RISING TREND IN ALTERNATIVE EXERCISE Lauren McShane

The ladies at a recent poledancing class at Revolution Dance & Fitness Complex come in all shapes and sizes. Everyone is relaxed and supportive the day I venture in to investigate a growing trend in the world of alternative exercise: pole dancing.

As I teeter into the studio (in the super-high heels recommended on RdfX’s Web site), I’m greeted by the spitfire enthusiasm of Glenda Carnate, the owner of Revolution Dance & Fitness Complex and class instructor. All 4-foot-something of her is bursting with confidence and excitement, but my eyes are locked on the eight or so poles that stretch from floor to ceiling. As I fill out my waiver (fitness is apparently dangerous), I am suddenly consumed with the feeling that the next 45 minutes are sure be the most embarrassing of my life. “We’re having fun, we’re all women here,” Carnate says, putting me partially at ease. You see, the life of a Worcester Mag intern – or my life at least – is not exactly sexy. But that’s what I’ve come to RdfX for – I’ve come for a new workout that makes me feel good, not like another treadmill drone running to nowhere. I’ve been bored by the gym and all its accessories and I’ve come for killer abs and rockin’ arms. I’ve come for confidence; I’ve come to experience a trend that is represented by 15 countries in the International Pole Federation. The Pole Fitness Association, another community of pole dancers, boasts nearly 50 members across the U.S. The class begins in a safe space, a space I know – the yoga mat. And on that mat we stretch everything, including muscles I never knew I had. Then we’re put through a merciless abdominal workout that leaves me sweating through my itsy bitsy outfit (also recommended on the RdfX Web site). “To get ready for the pole, you need strong legs and strong abs and that’s what the warm-up is for,” says Carnate of the first part of her class, which consists mainly of ballet-based exercises. We’re now ready to be “sexy,” according to Carnate, so we roll up our mats and are instructed to “grab a pole.” There’s only a split second for the pole and I to be properly introduced before I start shaking my godgiven goodies all over it, so I do my best to quell my giggles, get serious and figure out how to get through this without breaking an ankle. I am by no means the first person to have this fear. Pulsating on a pole is – as anyone who’s ever sneaked a peak inside Hurricane Betty’s knows – nothing new. According to thepolepower.com, an insightful if not thoroughly intimidating resource, pole dancing adopted the form we now recognize in the 1920s during the Great Depression. Traveling fairs moved from town to town entertaining crowds with various acts; the more erotic ones were housed in small tents where girls danced suggestively against the tent poles, situated at the very edge of the stage. The scene moved from tents to bars in the 1950s and by the ’80’s had settled into the Las Vegas-style scene we’ve come to know. During the 1990s, well-known erotic dancers began teaching their practice, and during the last decade the pole dance has taken hold in the fitness world. 10 W O R C E S T E R M A G .

{ coverstory } A LEAGUE OF X-TRAORDINARY WOMEN Pole dancing as an erotic

form of movement is only slightly different from the challenge in front of me. The Pole Fitness Association, formed to “represent and lead the Pole Fitness community worldwide by defining and promoting standards,� according to its Web site, explains the different factions of pole dancing. There’s your standard pole dancing for entertainment purposes, pole fitness as a form of exercise (which is what I’m doing today) and pole sports, a competitive form of pole fitness.

While there are differences between these three forms, each maintains a definite element of sexuality. “It takes a lot of work to be sexy,� says Carnate, who received her training at Pole Fitness Miami, a studio that works to “abolish any stigma associated with pole dancing [and allow the practice to] stand on its own as an exercise and art form,� its Web site states. The practice seems self explanatory, but the scope of pole dancing continues to widen and should one still have questions that need answering, there are plenty of people willing to help. Organizations like The Pole Fitness Association and the International Pole Dance Fitness Association work to streamline studios that offer pole fitness classes as well as to

promote pole dancing as a form of fitness. Both organizations are also petitioning to make pole fitness an Olympic sport by citing the acrobatic, gymnastic and technical strength and skill it takes to master. The petition says what many supporters of pole fitness believe, “[It] is by no means a fad or a trend, Pole is here to stay.� S T E VE N K I NG

fitness community. On the local level, practitioners of pole fitness have begun coming together as well. SuperShag Dance Studio, which has locations in both Waltham and Charlestown, began offering pole fitness classes in 2007 and has since created and hosted the first New England Pole Dance Showcase, “as a way to bring together pole dance studios in the area with the sole purpose of celebrating the art form,� says instructor Danielle Mayzes.

Mayzes explained in a recent e-mail that SuperShag is a new member of The Pole Fitness Association, “which is recognized worldwide as an organization committed to high standards of training and safety within the pole dance community,� she said. Those high standards are important, Mayzes says, especially when new students have reservations due to the generally seedy connotations related to pole dance.

{ coverstory } NO WEIGHTS? NO BIG DEAL CHECK OUT THESE LOCAL ALTERNATIVE EXERCISING OPTIONS

A

mericans’ exercising habits have come a long way during the past couple decades. The average person doesn’t head to muscle beach to slam weights with a bunch of meatheads, and people are growing bored with inhome instructional videos and traditional exercising. Who really wants to power walk or go for a run? While local gyms continue to offer a better variety of services to their members, there’s also a wide world of alternative exercise for those looking to add some fun to their regiments or embark on a new challenge. Pole fitness might be a little much for your style – though our intrepid reporter would encourage you to be open-minded – so consider these Worcester businesses offering the latest in health and wellness programs.

BOOT CAMPS Fairly new to the exercising scene, boot camps utilize a militarystyle regiment to motivate their members. Often taking place as early as 5 a.m., these programs use a wide variety of exercises and activities to maintain interest and to work different muscles.

YOGA/PILATES If you think stretching isn’t a legitimate workout then you’ve never tried the Tadasana (the mountain pose is a lot more difficult than you’d think). Yoga increases flexibility, which benefits joints, ligaments and tendons, and helps blood flow to those hard-toreach muscles and organs. It’s also known for aiding stress and increasing happiness.

“These aren’t stripper classes – they’re dance fitness classes with an edge,” Mayzes says. Mayzes’ training is in more traditional forms of dance such as ballet, jazz and ballroom dancing. But while spending time in Ireland, Mayzes received extensive training in pole fitness and brought her knowledge back to the U.S. Since SuperShag added pole dance to its classes, the response has been positive. “We’ve seen a tremendous rise in popularity over the last year,” she says, noting that SuperShag has doubled its number of classes since the New England Pole Dance Showcase. “What started as an experiment quickly became [popular] – a fun way to get in shape for people of all backgrounds, dancer or not,” Mayzes says. That’s the beauty of this popular new form of fitness; everyone and anyone can do it. According to Mayzes, women come to the class for a variety of reasons and leave with just as many new experiences. “The focus of every class is simple – empowerment through learning,” she says. “Every woman wants to feel strong, confident and sexy. Pole fitness has many sides to it; while one woman may start classes to get back into shape, another may take the class to add some spice to her love life. The majority of our students really just want to have fun – it’s about being open to learning new things and bringing your own style to the dance.”

{ coverstory } They giggle together as one woman slips into blinking light-up platform shoes and they joke about the moves they showed off for their husbands. The more time I spend with these women, the more comfortable I become – and the more ready I am to tackle the pole. I’ve come in to the third class of the session, so my classmates already know a good deal of “choreography.” “Just do your best to follow along!” Glenda yells over a string of unprintable Ludacris lyrics. And with the two of them in my corner, something miraculous happens. I work it. We all do. I give credit to a number of things: • Heels: Resulting in increased height, better posture; • Skimpy outfit: Result suspect until ... • Dimmed lights: Make the skimpy outfit look better, learn importance of good lighting; • Glenda Carnate: Whose encouragement keeps me from losing my cool when my shorts are riding up and I accidentally kick my shoe across the room; • Humility: The women on either side of me try to stifle their laughter as we practice moves like “the kitty” and “the police officer.” When we all come crashing down attempting “the chair,” we collectively realize a sense of humor is essential.

Revolution Dance & Fitness Complex, Worcester’s women are ready and willing to show their style. Each of my visits to Glenda’s class is packed with students eager to strap on their stilettos and shake what their mamas gave them.

The vibe in the studio is different than anything I’ve seen before. Certain forms of exercise create certain types of atmosphere. You’ve got the gym that not only breeds a multitude of fungi, but aorta-bursting hostility toward the people who won’t wipe down their machine. Yoga is great but frustrating trying to be “centered” while balancing on one foot in a class of 30. And biking? Well no one looks cool biking, and it’s dangerous and drivers hate you. So it’s not surprising to walk into pole dancing class and see happy faces in a private, peaceful atmosphere. The women are courteous and reassuring and congratulate each other on a particularly graceful “fall” – which is pretty much what it sounds like, but always backwards and onto your head.

We are pleased to announce the opening of our new Leominster office

SO BAD IT’S GOOD The resonation of the bass beat quickly drowns my insecurities, replaced instead by a confidence that comes when you suddenly see yourself as sexy.

And you are sexy, not because anyone tells you so, but because every muscle in your body is working and you realize that you’ve got the T and you’ve got the A and you’ll use them however you damn well please. Carnate explains this phenomenon wherein someone like I – a Harry Potter reading, glasses-wearing nail biter – suddenly accesses her inner bad girl. “It’s a very freeing experience,” Carnate says. “You may not feel sexy when you walk in, but you will. And I believe that when you’re sexy, you’re confident.” I’m processing this as I pack up my heels and put on something that less resembles a Band-Aid. Carnate can see the dissonance on my face, and perhaps the little Betty Friedan sitting on my shoulder, and predicts my next question. “I know, I know,” she says with a smile, “it’s so bad that it’s good.” ❏

The Wandas go high def at Ralph’s Doreen Manning

If you haven’t heard of The Wandas by now, chances are you will soon. This Boston-based band with Worcesterite roots has been incessantly touring the nation for the past year, created a huge buzz at the recent South By Southwest Music Festival in Austin, Texas, scored big with radio airplay in April when it won the 2010 95.5 WBRU Rock Hunt and is now poised to film a high definition video at Ralph’s Diner on Saturday with a special extended set ranging through its entire catalog. So what, you ask? Don’t make me say I told you so if you miss out on this up and coming band.

Formed in 2002 when Brent Battey and Auburn-native Keith McEachern met while attending Berklee College of Music in Boston, the group has gone through a few lineup changes but is currently comprised of McEachern, Battey, Paxton’s Ross Lucivero (a cousin to McEachern) and William Bierce. “The lineup has shifted a bunch but everything has always seemed natural,” says bassist Lucivero. “People grow, change, move on and the band takes a new shape. The lineup we have now really became solid when William [Bierce] joined the band. We needed a new drummer heading into an East Coast tour in April of 2009 and he jumped right in. This lineup has really gelled. I

can’t see anything changing from here on out.” Consider The Wandas an American rock band, with similarities to The Shins, Wilco and even a bit of Springsteen in their storytelling. “I would say we’re a rock and roll band. Plain and simple. We have a lot of influences from the 1960s and 1970s so people usually say they can hear those roots in our melodies and harmonies,” Lucivero says. With three studio albums and an EP to their name, The Wandas have constantly been moving forward throughout their career. Their most recent album, New Wave Blues was released in 2009 and has been the impetus for a year and half tour that has taken them to more than 100 live shows. “The touring has really been a way for us to grow our fanbase organically and to grow as musicians as well,” explains Lucivero. “It’s crazy what playing 100-150 shows in a year will do for you. It’s almost like taking five years of being a locally performing band and condensing it into one year. So when you come out of it, you have more fans, you’re tighter as a band and you’ve learned a ton. Not to mention you get to meet a ton of cool people and see our country.” Besides a heavy touring schedule, The Wandas have embraced the new age when it comes to marketing their music. As Lucivero explains, their e-mail list, Twitter, Facebook fan page and blogs keep them connected in a way that independent bands without big label backing once could never dream of. “It’s never been easier to engage fans and offer them quality content, whether it be music, video, exclusive merchandise, etc. The internet has become just as much a part of us as any other aspect of our musical career,” explains Lucivero, who handles most of the band’s

Internet presence. “I sent two CDs to the UK the other day because someone read a review about us in a European blog and I had someone in China e-mail me about downloading our music because they loved a YouTube video of us. That stuff wasn’t happening 15 years ago when the music industry was ‘booming,’” Lucivero says. The band is currently working on new material, which it hopes to release in the spring of 2011. McEachern admits that the newest lineup will effect their sound, but is excited about the natural evolution of the band. “William joined the band after we released New Wave Blues, so having new ideas, critical input, musical taste, [will] all play into our new music,” McEachern says. “The touring has taught us more about the evolution of a song at a faster rate … Luckily people seemed to like it so it gave us confidence to continue to trust our instincts. So far we are using more acoustic guitars and capos – maybe it’s a sign of us getting older,” McEachern says. According to the band, The Ralph’s shoot is a way to capture the end of a journey. “We’ve been playing the songs off of New Wave Blues for a while now and we’re real happy where they’ve ended up, so we’d love to capture that feel on tape,” Lucivero says. Expect the unexpected from The Wandas at the Ralph’s shoot. “With the musical evolution and lineup changes we could have easily changed our name a year and a half ago and considered our self a new group. We’re quite a different band now then we formed,” says McEachern. “We typically don’t perform our older material. At Ralph’s we’re going to dust off some old material in addition to some brand new songs,” he says. With eight years of music and a sizable catalog under their belts, The Wandas expect to clock in around an hour and 15 minutes instead of their normal 45 minutes. With old school friends Hard No. 9 and Matt Benoit opening, this is a show you simply don’t want to miss. Oh, and maybe you’ll get your few minutes of fame – you just never know. The Wandas play Ralph's Diner in Worcester 9 p.m. June 12. $8, 21-plus. Learn more about the band at thewandas.com and myspace.com/thewandas. ❏

Wormtown Hoedown

Heather Vandenengel

Where can you find a gritty blues and country musician, a young Americana garage band, a Worcester music legend and a Mike Nesmith tribute band on a Saturday night?A hoedown, of course. The Wormtown Hoedown and Review is giving Worcester a kick of country on Saturday at The Raven, with an impressive lineup featuring James Keyes, New Highway Hymnal, Bob Jordan and Loose Salute.

Hoedowns are not usually found ‘round these parts, but Steve Blake, Loose Salute’s bass player and producer, wanted to try something different. Looking to do a show with their new guitar player, Rick Sparrow, Blake decided to pull together a group of musicians with a connection to roots music and call it a hoedown.

“We wanted to make it more of an event, rather than just a show,� Blake says. While those in the lineup share some country twang, the way that is expressed through their music varies. “It’s going to be a very diverse bill. Some of it’s going to rock out and some of it’s going to twang out, and if you like Monkees we’re going to throw some in there for the hell of it,� Blake says. First on the bill is gritty, alternative folk by Numbskull’s guitarist and vocalist James Keyes with percussionist Al Polese. Keyes will play music from his recently released solo album, Ruminations, which he describes as having a dark, rolling vibe. “It’d be the perfect soundtrack in a country and western opium den in a Quentin Tarentino film,� Keyes says. With a recently released EP, New Highway Hymnal from Haverhill also takes a unique twist on roots rock by putting a psychedelic spin on Americana blues. “We rely pretty heavily on the groove of the song and the vibe that it creates to capture our audience’s attention,� says guitarist

catch release

Hadden Stemp. A Worcester legend and musical chameleon, Bob Jordan has also found a home on the hoedown bill. “I don’t fall into any one category, I’m interested in nice music and weird music and so I draw from all kinds of influence and try to keep it fresh as I go on my journey,� he says. His sound for the hoedown will be country and folk, however, featuring music from his recently released album, The Country That Never Was, as well as some songs from the album he’s currently working on with Steve Blake and Greg Sullivan from Loose Salute. Rounding out the hoedown is Loose Salute, a tribute to Michael Nesmith and other great American song writers. The group, composed of Mick Lawless, Steve Blake, Rick Sparrow and Greg Sullivan, is also working on a new album to be released soon and promises to play everything from your Monkees favorites to progressive country tunes. While each act has its own distinct sound, one thing is for sure: You don’t

White Widow Black Heart

&

Apparently, alt rock trio White Widow has received air play on The Young & The Restless and All My Children. I find this hard to believe for two reasons. First, white widow is the nickname given to a certain strain of marijuana – it’s unlikely a band that names itself after weed is getting anywhere near daytime network television. Second, not only is the music too alternative and abrasive for the soap-viewing crowd (think Courtney Love, only darker), the production quality is sub par. The guitars on “Gutterâ€? are too noisy, and the cheesy electronic bass drum that acts as a metronome doesn’t help. Even worse is frontwoman (and band namesake) White Widow’s vocals. She sings in barelyaudible moans and whispers on “Empire,â€? with occasional off-key bleats that overpower an otherwise decent acoustic riff. If any track from Black Heart was played during daytime television, then I just replaced Kevin Garnett in the Celtics starting lineup. Still curious? The band plays The Lucky Dog June 16. whitewidowmusic.com â??

The

hot seat

WM: As a comedian, I’m assuming you don’t work a regular day job. What do you do to add structure to your day? I actually do work a day job. I work for a sprinkler company as their office administrator. It adds plenty of structure to my day, because I know for eight hours a day I’m going to be miserable.

Matt Donaher may seem like the reserved, quirky boy scribbling madly next to you in homeroom, but underneath the comely Donnie Darko exterior lays an intense joke-writing talent that has been getting him a lot of attention. The good kind of attention, not the “Hey that dude is pantsless in the produce department,” kind of attention. A finalist in the 2009 Giggles Laugh Riots Contest, he was picked to perform in the Alternative Showcase at the 2009 Boston Comedy Festival, is a regular on the Rooftop Comedy front page and in 2010 was voted both funniest comedian in Manchester, N.H. as well as overall Funniest Comedian in the entire granite state. A regular at the Comedy Studio in Cambridge, Donaher will be Comic in Residence there in 2010. We caught up with Donaher this week while washing his car and simultaneously spraying him playfully with a hose and forced him to answer these very difficult questions.

WM: When the zombie apocalypse comes, who would you be more afraid of: Zombie Dennis Hopper or Zombie Gary Coleman? I think I have the height advantage on Coleman by a foot. Hopper was King Koopa in the Super Mario Brothers movie, so it would be an honor to be eaten by him.

WM: Worcester once called itself the “Paris of the ’80’s.” It didn’t really take off like we had hoped. We need something new, something catchy. Give me a new slogan to help tourism in Worcester. How long was that saying really going to last for? Until the ’90’s? That saying really had a shelf life. How about Worcester, Paris of the 2080s. That way you have some time to play with, and no one can prove you wrong. Unless they are a time traveler. WM: Name my next dog for me. Either Gary Coleman Jr. or King Koopa. Your choice. Matt Donaher will perform at Frank’s Comedy Safari 8 :30 p.m. Saturday$20 (party of 6 or more $15 each). Call 1-800-71 LAUGH for tickets. 90 Commercial St., Worcester.

and I’m taking advantage of it. I’m also writing and publishing verse, which was my first love.” Dempsey admits to simply having fun with the exploration of the zombie genre. “I like zombies – so much superior to vampires,” he says. “I guess I wanted to imagine a world in which they could exist and interact with people as opposed to having their heads blown off.” Published by Italian academic publisher Aracne Editirice (Arachne Publishing), Dempsey was first approached by the publisher after he presented a paper on Modernism at a conference in France. At first the publisher was only interested in Dempsey’s work on the biography of Scofield Thayer, a Worcester native who published The Dial, which Dempsey considers to be “the most important and influential of the modernist and avant-garde magazines in the 1920s.” Dempsey’s research on The Dial was

incomplete at the time, so Dempsey offered Aracne Zakary’s Zombies to buy himself a little extra time, and so the fictional tale was released. How does a WPI professor and author end up reading excerpts of his new novel on stage at a bar, between a trio that plays songs culled from the Great American Songbook? “I blame my two friends, novelist Jack O’Connell and hairstylist Joe Landry,” Dempsey says. “Jack suggested doing the reading at a bar, and Joe suggested Nick’s.” Dempsey plans on discussing the zombie as useful literary convention, read passages from the book and sell copies that are – at the moment – only available through the publisher online at catalogoaracneeditrice.eu. James Dempsey reads from Zakary’s Zombies: A Fairy Tale at 6:30 p.m. Sunday. Bobby Gadoury Trio plays at 5 p.m. and again after the reading. 124 Millbury St., Worcester. ❏

Dempsey, a Liverpool native, came to Clark for a Master’s program in the ’70’s, and in what seems like the modus operandi of so many Clark grads, simply set down roots when his degree was in hand. His new novel, Zakary’s Zombies brings his career full circle from academia to the modern mythology of zombies, and the Worcester debut of his novel will take to the stage at Nick’s Bar & Restaurant on June 13, sandwiched in between two sets of the Bobby Gadoury Trio. Zakary’s Zombies: A Fairy Tale tells the story of a young man developmentally damaged by heroin in utero, who is abandoned by his foster family as a young adult only to find himself living with a pair of zombie squatters in his basement. The result is a strange, raw and often striking family situation. Dempsey corrects me when I suggest that Zakary’s Zombies is a stretch from the writings of Chaucer. “No. Chaucer doesn’t hold back either. If the Texas school board could read Chaucer they would ban him. He is delightfully vulgar and obscene,” Dempsey says. Dempsey credits his love of writing and a desire to be challenged for leading him to this path of zombies, sexual awakenings and social observations. “Different type[s] of writing, different audience, different aims. A singer may go from a lullaby to a sexy rocker. I think it’s good to challenge yourself in many areas,” he says. “When I was banging out the newspaper columns I didn’t have much time for anything else. Now I do,

David Wildman

Whenever I see Hollywood turn an old TV show into a feature film, it really makes me wonder about the motives. Of all the examples of this I’ve witnessed, I can come up with only a single instance in which the results were outstanding: Star Trek. This covers a wide spectrum that includes Get Smart, which was one of the better offerings, and Bewitched, which merely gave me yet another reason to want to see Nora Ephron burned at the stake. It’s a given that major studios never do anything without a financial endgame. So the question for me is: Are these revivals seeking sure-fire success by pleasing nostalgic fans or are they hoping to improve on the original and create something new that might pull in audiences unfamiliar with the source? To me these would seem to be conflicting aims. With Star Trek it was always going to be a balancing act, because the stakes were high. The original was hugely influential and still enjoyed widespread popularity. J.J. Abrams managed to make it work (although I would have liked something even more inventive). But in the case of The A Team, I see little there besides a standard Stephen J. Cannellcreated launching vehicle for the career of the iconic Mr. T. George Peppard was already famous and plying his standard tough-guy shtick, while blow-dried Dirk Benedict did his womanizing hunk routine, honed on the original Battlestar Galactica. In other words, I pity the fools that thought this was a great idea. That much said, for what little it’s worth The A Team manages to stay true to the spirit of the original while wowing us with the kind of visceral action filmmaking you would expect from Joe Carnahan, of Smokin’ Aces fame. Liam Neeson is now the silver-haired alpha man mastermind Hannibal, Bradley Cooper the highly competent studmuffin

Face, as B.A., Quinton Jackson does a note-perfect Mr. T, right down to his emasculating flying phobia, and Sharlto Copley is convincingly insane as Murdock, the whack-job pilot they yank out of the booby hatch every episode. The film opens with the obligatory back-story showing how they all met, their mutual discovery of each other’s Ranger’s tattoos providing an instant bond of macho daring-do. The setting shifts to Iraq eight years later (in the original it was ’Nam) and Jessica Biel is introduced as eye candy and a foil of sorts – she’s Charissa Sosa, Face’s ex and now a military captain suspicious of the team. They do a Mission Impossible retrieval of some counterfeit plates from Baghdad, but an arrogant CIA prick spoils the party and frames them, effectively sending all four of the A folk to prison. Of course that doesn’t last long, and soon they’ve escaped and are out to exact revenge as they clown and mug their way across a wide and varying landscape of entertaining but unlikely scenarios. Anyway, the convoluted plot is the least of the reasons anyone is going to see this thing. It’s all about the delightfully ridiculous Rube-Goldberg plans that Hannibal puts together, the rough bromance camaraderie and the many things these dudes blow up together. Basically, it’s pretty much the same premise as The Losers, another liveaction cartoon about a group of toughassed dudes out to settle a score (they both even have their climax set in an L.A. Shipyard), although that film boasted a surprising level of unpredictability in the interactions between characters, better jokes and a nasty, brutal edge that this one lacks. In the end, a copy is only as good as its original, so a film like this has to be judged on whether it succeeds on its own terms and fulfills its initial promise, which this one does. But since that promise is of such dubious worth, it’s hard to get all that excited about the end result. ❏

{ dining}

VALUE ★★★★

Union Station • 508-755-6408 • maxwellsilvermansbanquet.com

All aboard for a vintage dining experience Marc Cochon

Ten years after its renovation, Worcester’s magnificent Union Station is still searching for a 21st century identity beyond a simple commuter rail stop. Luciano’s Cotton Club aims to place that identity squarely in the past – specifically, the gangster era of the 1920s and 1930s. Diners are greeted by a large photo collage featuring the menacing visages of Lucky Luciano, Al Capone and John Dillinger. Although there’s no evidence the

three ever met, they might have enjoyed convening at the stylish bar for a cocktail. In fact, each thug has his own space: Luciano’s expansive dining room is augmented by two outdoor dining spaces. Al Capone’s Café overlooks recently revamped Washington Square, and up on the platform John Dillinger’s Barbecue Grille offers trackside seating with occasional visits from the MBTA commuter trains. The main dining room evokes the roaring ’20’s with jazz and swing music, luridly headlined period newspapers and attractive décor. It’s a comfortable, distinctive and entertaining space. The art-deco menu, with mug shots of our antiheroes on the cover, takes an intriguing fixed-price approach: all appetizers, salads and sandwiches are at $10; most entrées cost $15 with a few at $10; desserts are $5. The wine

list is similarly well-priced – Kenwood Sauvignon Blanc ($30) is a crisp and food-friendly summer choice. Cherry Duck Wings, which turn out to be small drumsticks, are a successful starter. The maraschino cherry sauce is a touch too sweet, but the duck is succulent and crispy. A baby spinach salad is less rewarding: slightly faded leaves adorned with slivered almonds, grapes and a few little mounds of grated parmesan. The recommended balsamic dressing is a good match, though. Grilled Salmon Bambino ($15) is topped appealingly with tomatoes, garlic, basil and olive oil. The dish is a bit salty, but the salmon is fresh and moist and the flavors blend well. Side dishes of corn and scalloped potatoes are less interesting – the corn is a bit tired, and the potatoes lack both seasoning and crust.

A bowl of Chicago Mac and Cheese ($10) is generous and creamy – do I detect a touch of Velveeta? – but the promised bacon is in awfully short supply, causing us to seek out the tiny, crisp shards. The Ritz cracker topping seems appropriate, if laid on a bit thickly, since the crackers were introduced in 1934. Luciano’s featured dessert format is the “waffle mousse,” a waffled sugar cone with one of several fillings ($5). The raspberry mousse is light and sweet, and the cone is an amusing conveyance. Service is pleasant, professional and accommodating, water glasses are filled regularly and the pacing of the meal is just right. Dinner for two comes to $54, not including wine and tip. Union Station is one of Worcester’s great landmarks, and it stands to be a cornerstone of the city’s future development. Luciano’s can play a key role in helping connect Washington Square to the Shrewsbury Street scene and eventually to downtown, but only if people go there. The food is appealing and well-priced, there are outdoor dining spaces and the building and atmosphere steal the show. Check it out. ❏

Bay State Bakery 96 Water St. 508-753-6000 Bay State Bakery in Worcester offers Middle Eastern cooking using quality fresh ingredients. Doubling as a deli and convenience store, this Water Street eatery features delicious meats, vegetables, and some of the best hummus the Western Hemisphere has to offer. You can’t go wrong with one of the kabob dishes, or the chicken or beef schwarma, served either as a flatbread sandwich or as a plate with rice, salad and yogurt dip.

Udupi 378 Maple Avenue, Fair Lawn Plaza, Shrewsbury 508-459-5099 Hidden right off of Route 9 in Shrewsbury, this vegetarian haven offers an extensive menu that can satisfy just about anyone. The Indian food is solidly good, but the value is even better. Try one of the specials that sample several menu offerings, and even split it with a friend (the platters are good size). It’s worth a visit if you’re in the area, and if you’re vegetarian and looking for something different, it’s worth a little travel out of the way, too. Even the most devout carnivores will find something to their liking.

Ranch Cantina is a churrascuria, a traditional Brazilian restaurant which serves barbecued beef, pork and chicken, as well as ample and hearty non-meat choices, in a buffet format.

For rock and funk infused with soulful songwriting, My Silent Bravery (formerly The Matt Shwachman Band) at Loft 266 Bar & Lounge is a must. Follow it up with a special Thursday show at Gardner Ale House by dark rockers Caves on Mars. If you’re feeling the blues, the S-Kalators Band at Gilrein’s will fix you up. The Harvest Café in Hudson has a night of instrumental jazz and Latin pop planned with their bi-monthly music collective hosted by Perry Bakalos of the trio Smoke N Mirrors. Ralph’s rounds it out with a night of rock by The Cold Goodnight, The G Spots, The Monday Night Bar Crawl and American Motherfuckers. Give your night a healthy dose of Irish on Friday June 11 at the Worcester Hibernian Cultural Centre for the Worcester Irish Music Festival. Glengarry Bhoys, Solas and Celtic Misfortunes will have you doing a jig all night long.

Keep the momentum going on Saturday June 12 at The Palladium with hardcore metal and hip-hop group Eastcide and alternative rockers Sleep Alive.

For more rock than you can handle, The Raven has a massive lineup including American Sixgun, Randy Robbins, Switchblade Suicide, The Resemblance, Taste of Chains and Halos and Heretics. For a truly unique sound, check out former circus pit band, Cirkestra who will be performing a set of jazz, tango and Eastern European influenced music at Nick’s. There is plenty of punk to go around at Hotel Vernon where Mack the Knife and guests will take the stage. If you’re ready for your close up, you better get to Ralph’s for The Wandas video shoot along with Hard No. 9 and Matt Benoit. Get jazzed at the Sahara Café and Restaurant with The Ed Melikian Ensemble playing the intoxicating sounds of Armenia, Turkey, Greece.

Two minutes with...

Quadrivium Burncoat High School’s chorus is so good it has a name for itself: Quadrivium. (Don’t worry if you don’t know what that means, just read on.) Recently, the group has performed at Carnegie Hall, shared a stage with Kenny Rogers, sang as part of the festivities for Barack Obama’s presidential inauguration and is now in the running against four other state high schools to back up Foreigner on its song “I Want to Know What Love is” at an upcoming Bank of America Pavilion show. We sat down with nine students and director Dave Twiss to talk about their brushes with fame.

Let’s talk about the name “Quadrivium.” Where does that come from?...

Connor Moynihan (student): What it literally means is “four parts that work together.” I don’t know why we chose the name, but that’s what it means. Dave Twiss: It’s four parts working together as one. Like a crossroads is a quadrivium. And I didn’t know this while looking at the name, but I’m a huge Eric Clapton fan, so “crossroads” made perfect sense to me.

Let’s talk about the Foreigner contest, are you guys Foreigner fans?...

Twiss: Some more than others.

“I Want to Know What Love is” is a classic. This is your chance to do to the song what Glee did with Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin’”…

Ryan Hartman (student): Yeah, though I hate Glee. You can quote that.

How did you get into the contest? Have you checked out the competition?…

Twiss: We entered a video of us singing. Paige Allen: We are better than them. Hartman: One school did a nice

rendition of “Bohemian Rhapsody.” Allen: And another one did “Kiss From a Rose”…Moynihan:Which was… decent. Sarah Waskevich: The thing is though, it’s about voting. So if the other schools have more people to vote for them, even if they’re not better than us then they’ll win.

I heard you guys got to go sing at Carnegie Hall and with Kenny Rogers. How’d that come about?... Hartman: That was awesome. Allen: That was just crazy. Twiss: We were approached by one of the production teams who found us through some alumni at Assumption College. It was kind of a long networking thing. We submitted a disc to them. Carnegie Hall was similar. We sang at the Presidential Inaugural Festival last year and scored very high, and that allowed us to audition in front of Carnegie Hall, so we submitted a disc. [The students] keep building on their successes.

WORCESTERMAG.COM • JUNE 10, 2010

What was Kenny Rogers like?... Waskevich: He was normal. Like a grandfather.

Were you all doing any singing before you got to high school?... Allen: I joined once I got to Burncoat. Moynihan: I was doing musical theatre before that, but nothing really. Shardai Sam-Clarke: Does the shower count? Waskovich: A lot of us went to Burncoat Middle School, and they don’t have really like a “chorus” program. You can do the music magnet, but that’s really basically only for instruments.
