Cowboy Brazilian Steakhouse
t was a dark and stormy evening with blowing winds and pouring rain. But that wasn’t going to stop us from loading up our wagon with the young’uns and Kristi Maier riding into town to @triadfoodies Cowboy Brazilian Steakhouse, Winston-Salem’s Contributor only Churrascaria. Cowboy Brazilian Steakhouse opened in May at 115 South Main Street in the Bryce A. Stuart Municipal Building. Started by native Brazilian Edson Munekata, it is the fourth project following the Hilton Head, Charleston and flagship location in Columbia, South Carolina. Winston-Salem’s location is co-owned by Joel Evans, who’s been with the company for years and business partner, Freddy Lee, who is chef and partner at Bernardin’s and Bleu Restaurant. I’ve been to Leblon Churrascaria in Greensboro and after that filling experience, I literally fasted all day leading up to dinner at Cowboy Brazilian Steakhouse.

Gauchos, who carve it tableside. They keep coming back until you give them notice to stop with your trusty button…. green for “Go!” and red for “no more.” There are also six hot Brazilian dishes such as, mashed potatoes, black beans, greens, mushrooms and more. Plus, there is a 30-item salad bar complete with all the fresh garden greens you could want, toppings, smoked salmon, pasta salads, cheese, cold cuts and there’s also soup. It’s a stretchy breeches kind of place. Here’s how it works. You are seated and a server immediately tells you what is about to transpire, shows you the “button” that you’ll turn to green when you’re ready, takes your drink order and leaves you to it (“it,” meaning the salad bar). While you’re loading your plate with salad and all the fixings, your drink will arrive and probably bread which features traditional Brazilian cheese bread, corn bread sticks and these amazing breaded and fried bananas. Now if it was me, I’d enjoy that salad and the bread and begin pacing myself. If you get full easily you might consider skipping the salad
(Left) Joel Evans with Gaucho. (Right) Freddy Lee altogether, but it’s really fresh and vibrant and you’re here, so why not? When you’re almost ready to say, “go,” giddy up to the warm buffet and load up on some beans and potatoes and anything else that suits your fancy. When you’re seated again, turn that button over to green. And the first Gaucho will come with something like bacon-wrapped chicken and he (as the case was with us) will pull it down
off the skewer to your waiting plate. Then another Gaucho will arrive with something like garlic crusted sirloin, then another with filet, then another with beer-braised chicken drumstick, then another with this amazing pork and following that will be flank steak, leg of lamb, Brazilian Pork Sausage known as “Linguica,” filet mignon, bacon-wrapped filet, beef and pork ribs, pork parmesan, chicken sausage or lamb chop, House
Special “Picanha” (a type of pork), top sirloin and lamb chops. The meat they shave off for you is cooked to your temperature preference as well. It is seemingly endless, but the trick to getting the most out of your Cowboy experience is to use that little button. Turn it over to red, savor the moment and eat slowly because as Evans told me, a Churrascaria is meant to be experienced. “We want folks to come here and spend a good hour and a half or two hours with us,” Evans said. “It’s more a marathon than a race. That’s how they do it when they celebrate in Brazil. It’s a feast.” There were a number of meats that stood out for us. My children loved the flank steak and the bacon-wrapped chicken. My husband loved the flank, pork Parmesan and lamb chops. I agree the pork and the Picanha were superb but my favorite might have been the garlic steak. I stuck with just the salad and the meats but daughter enjoyed the mashed potatoes and rice. Next time, I’ll be sure to try the balsamic mushrooms, as they looked delicious. Be sure to save room for the roasted pineapple that comes a bit later. It’s been rubbed with brown sugar and cinnamon and is succulent. Dessert options include Brazilian custard that’s like flan, complete with a caramel sauce, a red velvet cheesecake (which my little one really loved) a WWW.YESWEEKLY.COM
chocolate truffle cake, key lime pie and more. This is the perfect place if you are on a crazy whacko Keto Diet (like Mr. Foodie) or Atkins, Paleo or Whole 30 because it is all real food and meat and veggies. Gluten free? You’re fine. Vegetarian or vegan? There are lots and lots of endless salad and warm veggies that may or may not have cream or butter (ask your Gaucho). In addition to the full barn and main dining area, there are two other dining rooms that can be reserved for meetings or special events. My daughter opined that it was like the ensemble song, “Be Our Guest” in Beauty and the Beast, “they just keep bringing out food!” she said. It is kind of like that, course by course, one by one, until you say “Enough! I’m done!” Except, you just make the flip from green to red and they will leave you alone after that…until dessert. ! KRISTI MAIER is a food writer, blogger and cheerleader for all things local who even enjoys cooking in her kitchen, though her kidlets seldom appreciate her efforts.

“Single Channel Catalyst II” opens at Weatherspoon BY JAMES ROSS KIEFER
here becomes a point when mundane objects such as clothing, jars, plates and other items transcend a basic functionality. They develop a meaning to us, evoke an emotional response and at times have their own personality. On opening night June 3, this is what the Weatherspoon Art Museum’s new “Single Channel Catalyst II” exhibit sought to explore. Located on the corner of Spring Garden and Tate Street, the museum has remained an important hub of modern and contemporary art for the Greensboro community, and the southeastern United States. “Single Channel Catalyst II” begins in the Falk Gallery and features an assortment of paintings, sculptures and repurposed items. One of the first pieces greeting visitors to the exhibit is a photo by Andy Warhol. The black and white photo presents a few articles of clothing hanging on a rack. Appropriately titled “Flea Market,” this piece captures the casual and simplistic nature of shopping at an open and informal market. The clothes appear to be clustered together, and differ in style, pattern and type of apparel. This follows the idea of objects presenting a persona, as they are akin to the variety of shoppers that would be found a flea market. It’s worth noting that photography is a departure for Warhol, as he’s typically known for his paintings. A more technical piece within the exhibit is a wax and polyester resin casting of books. Artist Stella Waitzkin created a stack of several books, juxtaposing the white and orderly base with a staggered,
colorful top. Chips and other imperfections around the sculpture give the books an aged look. The accompanying plaque to the piece explains how Waitzkin has a polarizing relationship to books, seeing them as both places for knowledge, but also as a source for misinformation. The exhibit also exudes a more playful tone. A piece by Christo and Jeanne-Claude is simply a repurposed box wrapped in brown paper and string, already post marked. The only thing that distinguishes the piece from a normal mail parcel was that if the recipient of the box were to open it, they are treated to a piece of paper informing them that they ruined a piece of art. Extending into The Leah Louise B. Tannenbaum Gallery, the physical art of the exhibit is partnered with a short film by artist Alejandro Almanza Pereda. Titled “Better to have loved and lost than to have never loved at all,” the black and white film establishes a manipulated still life, as it is shot in an underwater tank as to allow the featured objects to establish movement, and is accompanied by serene score of strings and acoustic guitar. At moments the film feels almost voyeuristic. Fruits and vegetables, a cup and pearl necklace are displayed, each seeming to have a specific emotional profile. There’s a squash that comes off as sassy and brash. A lemon that refuses to stay in place, and a deck of cards that tenderly floats out of sight. Curator of exhibitions Emily Stamey organized “Single Channel Catalyst II.” “One of the reasons this video is so compelling is that, like all the objects in it that won’t stay put, it’s difficult to pin down,” she said. “All at once it’s nostalgic and whimsical, melancholic and humorous, simple and yet mesmerizing. I’ve

(still) seen visitors get up, seemingly haven’t ‘gotten it’ and ready to leave the gallery, only to be captivated by the next scene and continue watching, completely engrossed.” A commonality between the two sections of the exhibit is that Pereda’s video features many of the same subjects and figures found in the Falk Gallery. “Paired with the selection of artworks from the collection, I hope the video is not only enjoyable, but also thought-provoking,” Stamey said. “Collectively, these artworks, all of which focus on ordinary objects, pose interesting questions about the meanings, values, and functions of things in our lives. Being a part of the University of North Carolina Greensboro campus, the Weatherspoon also attracts a fair amount of students. Fine arts student Curtis Hoffmann found inspiration at the exhibit. “I’ve definitely had an extended inter-
est in texture and its use in painting, especially creatively as a texture. And the fire paintings [“Fire Table Cone D”] really enforced that interest, making sure to adequately use texture in my own works,” Hoffman said. “They’re simple compositions, but they’re impactful.” UNCG alumni Anna Sorenson visited the Weatherspoon for the first time and saw the exhibit. Sorenson said “Better To Have Loved” struck a personal chord with them. “I saw a statement about the gentrification of women, and acknowledging that women have lives separate from men,” Sorensen said. “I could also interpreted it as trying to see people outside the context of yourself, and how people still have lives going on outside of your own.” “Single Channel Catalyst II” will be on display at the Weatherspoon until Aug. 20. !

Wingfest kicks off at 11 a.m. with food and entertainment for the whole family. Admission is free and wing samples and nonalcoholic drinks are $1.00 each. Guests can also stretch their stomachs in the “Lord of the Wings” wing-eating contest, bust a move in the chicken dance competition or browse artwork from the Creative Arts Studio. The local classic rock group, the Fabulous Flashbacks and the Arc of High Point’s own Heart and Soul Singers will provide live music. A pop-up beer garden will dispense microbrews from local breweries, including Natty Greene’s, Gibb’s Hundred and Preyer Brewing Company. This year marks Wingfest’s 10th anniversary and the event has grown steadily since it began; Last year, over 19,000 people came to the festival. “We are really proud to put on this unique fundraiser,” executive director of the Arc of High Point Stephanie Antkowiak, said. “It’s always a lot of fun,” Antkowiak credits Wingfest’s sponsors for making it a success, as well as the Piedmont Triad Farmer’s Market for hosting. “There aren’t many venues that will let you set up for no charge, so we’re very fortunate,” Antkowiak said.

popular fundraiser with all proceeds go to fund the nonprofit’s programs for High Point residents with intellectual and developmental disabilities. By far the biggest crowd draw of Wingfest is the chance to sample and vote on the best tasting wings. This year’s contenders are: University Grill, Pizza Wing King, Sidelines Grill, Pantry Fried Chicken, Rixter Grill, Backyard Coals, and Wingski’s food truck. Keith Ray, of three-time Wingfest winner George’s Pizza, claims the keys to his popular wings are quality and simplicity. “You have to get the biggest, freshest wing you can, fry it well, and put a good

sauce on it,” Ray said. “Just care about what you’re doing.” For last year’s Wingfest champion Stephon Cunningham of Fish N’ Wings food truck, it’s all about the secret sauce. Fish N’ Wings swept the competition at Wingfest 2016, with awards including Best Hot Wings, Best Sweet Wings and Best Overall. Cunningham, a Washington, D.C. native, created his signature Mumbo sauce to be a taste of home. “Mumbo sauce originates in the Washington, D.C. area, where I’m originally from. At the Chinese carry-outs, they put that sauce on the wings. I grew up on it,” Cunningham said. “When I came down here to North Carolina, they didn’t have it, so I wanted to come up with my own version.” Cunningham revealed that the sweet, tangy flavor of Mumbo sauce comes from a tomato base. The rest is a secret that he JUNE 14-20, 2017
hopes will help him keep his edge in next year’s competition. A scheduling conflict kept Fish N’ Wings out of Wingfest this year, but Cunningham says he’ll be back to defend his title. Cunningham advises this year’s Wingfest competitors to bring extra supplies and staff, so as not to get overwhelmed by the crowd. “Be prepared for a lot of people. There were a lot more than I expected,” he said. “But try to enjoy the day, also. Take it all in.” ! MIA OSBORN is a Greensboro-based freelance writer who hails from Birmingham, Alabama.
Wingfest will be held from 11 a.m to 4 p.m. at the Robert G. Shaw Piedmont Triad Farmer’s Market, 2914 Sandy Ridge Road, in Colfax. WWW.YESWEEKLY.COM
On Pop of The World hosts Television founder and Winston-Salem native, gives advice to aspiring musicians
BY MATTY SHEETS
elevision, along with Patti Smith and the Talking Heads, got their start in the mid-‘70s playing at the now famous East Village venue, CBGB. These musicians changed the face, the ears, the legs and butts of rock ’n’ roll forever. When the show got confirmed at On Pop of the World Studios on Grove Street in Greensboro on June 7, Television’s guitarist Richard Lloyd and the band told OPOTW owner Randy Seals, that they would like to have Winston-Salem native Peter Holsapple, of The dB’s, R.E.M. (and many more), open the show. The bill was to be two rock and roll heroes and two modern day anomalies. Of course, the spot that Lloyd would play in town is On Pop of the World; It’s different, special and my favorite place. OPOTW owner Seals started recording music years ago in Indianapolis and later moved to North Carolina where he began recording in his basement. After moving into the big red building in Greensboro everything changed. The building was formerly a grocery store, and then a biker gang’s clubhouse, or lounge. Performances at OPOTW are recorded live, and are often filmed by Seals’ partner, Donna Smith, founder of Crossover Productions. Bands primarily come for private recording sessions, and OPOTW has produced over 100 albums. Matt Goshow is the engineer at the studio and in a fairly short time, he has learned how to engineer a recording session, produce his own recording sessions, and mix albums. According to Seals, “He just showed up, and kept showing up, and learned everything he could.” Goshow ran sound that night, and the band was impressed. I walked into the studio that night, early, and there was Holsapple on stage, messing with his guitar. “Hi, I’m Peter,” he said, and reached out his hand to shake mine. “I know! I’m Matty.” We shook hands, and I was about to keep walking but then I remembered the question. “Do you mind if I ask you one thing?” “No, I don’t mind at all,” he replied. “Do you have any advice for a musician or artist?” I asked. It came right out, nice and easy. You see, I’m uninterested in autographs; WWW.YESWEEKLY.COM
I just want to ask that one question. Other musicians I have interviewed answered it differently. Taj Mahal said, “Know your roots.” Arlo Guthrie said, “Good luck! NEXT!” Matt Sharp asked if I wrote. I said yes, and his advice was to keep writing. “Learn to read and write music.” Holsapple told me. “I would have gotten so much farther with music if I learned when I was young.” I was standing on the sidewalk out front, when the front door opened. Lloyd walked out. Our eyes met and he reached his hand out to shake mine. He looked comfortable, and at ease in his red and blue unbuttoned flannel and black T-shirt. “Hi, I’m Richard,” “Hi, I know!” I could barely get the words out, I was so in-awe and excited. “Who are you?” He asked me as we shook hands. “I’m Matty. Very nice to meet you,” I stammered. “Your hair is a cooler color than mine is,” he said. I guessed this would be my only chance. “Do you mind if I ask you one question?” I asked, realizing how nervous I was. He nodded. “Do you have any advice for a musician or artist?” “Make your own scene,” Lloyd answered, and gestured to the studio. I knew he was going to like this place. How could he not? He walked around during Holsapple’s set, standing by the merchandise, talking to people. A friend leaned in while the band played and said, “I had no idea that was him! We talked for twenty minutes.” People were on the sidewalk waiting to get in 30 minutes before the doors opened. There were many new faces, smiling faces that hadn’t been there before. Everyone really enjoyed the space, including Holsapple and Television. Lloyd played with Terry Clouse on bass, Jeff Brakebill on drums and Jason NeSmith on guitar and vocals. They strongly executed Lloyd’s songs, plus “Marquee Moon,” “Elevation,” “See No Evil,” and “Friction,” from Television. Terry told me that OPOTW reminded him of the punk scene where he started playing music, in Chattanooga, Tennessee. They all stayed long after the show, having beverages, smoking cigarettes, and sharing stories. Lloyd said that OPOTW was his “favorite place.” It was a great night for the studio, a great night for the musicians and a great night for Greensboro. !

Coco Hames plays free show in Winston-Salem by John AdAmiAn | @johnradamian Coco Hames was driving around Arkansas helping dogs. When I called her last week, the singer and songwriter was doing good deeds, assisting with rescue dogs, reducing canine suffering, making sure formerly neglected or abused animals get food, water and shelter. Hames lives in Memphis, Tennessee, so she was only on the other side of the big river, not too far from home. Hames, along with some friends, helped start a nonprofit organization devoted to animal rescue in Nashville, where she was living before heading west to Memphis. So, the all-creatures-great-and-small outreach isn’t out of character for Hames, who will headline the first Sunset Thursday event of 2017 at Bailey Park in Winston-Salem on June 15. “I’m one of those crazy dog ladies,” says Hames. The Winston-Salem show will be among the first extended stretch of performances for Hames since releasing her excellent self-titled solo debut on Merge Records back in the spring, a record that can conjure the Ramones, Dusty Springfield, Tammy Wynette, delivering pop-punk, Brill Building and countrypolitan charms from one song to the next. Part of the reason that Hames, the former frontwoman of garage-punk revivalists the Ettes, is essentially doing album-release shows several months after the actual album-release date is that her 16-yearold dog died at around the time, and it basically laid Hames low for a time.

“I was like, ‘I can’t do anything,’” says Hames of her decision to stay put for a time instead of getting on the road. Hames grew up in central Florida. In addition to her Tennessee stints, she’s lived over the years in Los Angeles, Madrid, London and Berlin. Rambling, being on tour, is something she’s pretty comfortable with. But this time around, with the recent loss of her pet, the newness of being a solo artist with her own name on the marquee, instead of being a part of a band, Hames felt like she wanted to let things filter through on their own a little more before heading out on the club circuit. She could have hopped in her Prius and done a string of solo dates without a backing band, but the songs on the record, with their tasteful restraint, retro style and subdued twang, seemed to call for more. So Hames wanted to wait and see what came together. “I’m a big procrastinator,” she says. She was, as she puts it, engaged in “a very active laziness.” Active laziness might sound vaguely oxymoronic, but it could relate to the keen attention to detail and cool patience that characterize Hames’s music. Really good songs tend to balance a mix of the familiar and the new. To take elements -- lyrical, melodic and harmonic -- that somehow sound classic and yet don’t in fact follow the same exact contours of anything we’ve heard before, that’s an ideal spot for a songwriter. Despite her talk about sitting back and waiting, Hames says she’s a control freak, and that combination might be the key. Hames has written some songs that definitely evoke big names from eras gone by. Listen to “I Do Love You,” which can bring to mind Roy Orbison, Gerry and the Pacemakers, the Byrds and the Shangri Las. It’s one of those rare songs that’s studded with hooks, in the verse, in the chorus and in the bridge. At first listen, the song sounds like a reiteration of a variation of “I love you,” one of the most often repeated sentiments in popular music. But Hames wedges in that emphatic “do,” which suggests that the love in question was somehow in doubt. And the refrain of the title is followed in the chorus by the line: “And it’s a long way, too,” which adds a degree of mystery to the equation. What appears on the surface to be a traditional expression of something we’ve heard a thousand times turns out not to be. “It’s sort of my way of being like ‘It’s not that obvious is it?’” says Hames about the little twists that can make her songs so satisfying. Something similar happens in the catchy and energetic Go-Gos-ish “I Don’t Wanna Go,” a song that suggests some strange interpersonal coercion when someone keeps trying to get the singer to WWW.YESWEEKLY.COM
go places when she’d prefer not to. A song that sounds simple and straightforward ends up being built around a fundamental ambiguity, one that keeps presenting itself after repeated listens. Where are they trying to take her? Why is she insisting on staying put? Hames thinks about all this stuff. Sometimes the slippery lyrics are intentional. Hames says she used to avoid using gendered pronouns in her songs because she wanted to make sure everyone could relate to them. “I used to have an issue, or a block,” she says of the practice. “I wanted for it to be applicable no matter who was listening to the song.” She gravitates toward phrases that are colloquial and real, stuff that you might overhear someone saying, but she musses things up, giving her songs that appealingly scuffed and natural feel. She’s not necessarily a member of the firstthought-is-the-best-thought school. “I don’t let an idea walk out the door just because it walked into my mind like that,” she says. But if Hames puts her own work under a microscope, she doesn’t analyse it and dissect it to the point of draining the life out of it. She understands that music has to retain a vital unconstrained energy in order to be worth making, worth listening to. It’s supposed to be fun. “It’s called playing for a reason,” she says. Hames said she started writing songs as a teenager. As a kid with headgear, she used songwriting as a way to win admiration from her otherwise contemptuous peers. She’d augment the lyrics of the day’s radio hits to revamp them into tunes that ridiculed their teachers. “I think that this happens to a lot of kids that get picked on; if you can turn into something else, like the class clown, then people seem to like you,” she says. So, music-making had an element of both defense mechanism and characterdefining activity for Hames. As a songwriter, Hames says she can be motivated by both a stubbornness to communicate a particular idea and a sort of openness to the path of least resistance. “I can’t always tell what’s guiding me,” she says. !

dapted from the hit film by its Academy Award-winning screenwriter, Bruce Joel Rubin, Ghost: The Musical follows Sam and Molly, a young couple whose connection takes a shocking turn after Sam’s untimely death. Trapped between two worlds, Sam refuses to leave Molly when he learns she is in grave danger. Desperate to communicate with her, he turns to a storefront psychic, Oda Mae Brown, who helps him protect Molly and avenge his death Ghost: The Musical features a pop-rock score by Dave Stewart of the Eurythmics and six-time Grammy Award winner Glen Ballard. Just as in the much-loved movie, the iconic “Unchained Melody” written by Hy Zaret and Alex North, complements the musical journey of this beautiful story. Artistic Director Jamie Lawson says, “Ghost: The Musical is for fans of the movie or for someone who has no association with the story at all! Filled with beautiful ballads and high-energy songs, Ghost will spirit you away with one of the most romantic stories that has filled your heart. Unlike the Broadway spectacle, which relied heavily on expensive special effects, we are asking our audience to ‘suspend your disbelief,’ as the Act One Finale suggests. The story of unfulfilled love speaks for itself, and it will haunt you long after the final curtain.”
Amber Engel and Brian Ford star in GHOST: The Musical at Theatre Alliance. The Theatre Alliance production is directed by Jamie Lawson and musically directed by Tommy Jackson. The cast stars Amber Engel as Molly, Brian Ford as Sam, John C. Wilson as Carl, and Dee Curry as Oda Mae.

plastic product made by mercenaries, pimps and profiteers rather than filmmakers who give a damn, The Mummy ( ) is the first official entry in what Universal is billing as Dark Universe, the studio’s attempt to duplicate the interconnected worlds showcased in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the DC Extended Universe. Of course, this isn’t the first time this century that the conglomerate has tried to milk profits from the exhausted udders of its classic horror line from the 1930s and 1940s: Previously, audiences had to suffer through 2004’s Van Helsing, 2010’s The Wolfman and 2014’s Dracula Untold. The last-named was supposed to be the opening film in this new world order, but it bombed so badly that the studio drove a stake through its publicity and opted to try again. With The Mummy, there’s no turning back — the film opens with the newly minted Dark Universe logo, and future films starring the likes of Johnny Depp (The Invisible Man) and Javier Bardem (the Frankenstein monster) have already been announced. But given the desultory picture on view here, here’s a tentpole project that has its work cut out for it. Thankfully, the only way is up. The titular monster in this case is Ahmanet (Sofia Boutella), an Egyptian evildoer whose pact with the god Set leads to her being buried alive. Cut to the present day, where her tomb is discovered by wacky adventurers Nick Morton (Tom Cruise) and Chris Vail (Jake Johnson) and furrowed-brow archaeologist Jenny Halsey (Annabelle Wallis). While transporting the coffin to London, where Dr. Henry Jekyll (Russell Crowe) is eager to examine its contents, our heroes allow Ahmanet to awaken and escape, whereupon she plays suck-face with hapless extras and drains them of their life force (speaking of which, at this point the movie briefly turns into Tobe Hooper’s ‘80s cult oddity Lifeforce, best remembered as that film starring Patrick Stewart and a beautiful space vampire who wanders around London butt-nekkid). It’s up to Nick to save the day, although he’s clearly overworked: He’s been picked by Ahmanet to serve as her Chosen One, and

Universal Shame he’s forced to play Hyde-and-seek with an increasingly irate Jekyll. Universal already mined the Mummy terrain with 1999’s The Mummy, the hugely successful Brendan Fraser flick that resulted in several sequels of diminishing returns. That daft film swiped more pages from Indiana Jones than Boris Karloff, but at least it was reasonably entertaining. The same can’t be said of this new version, which is so scattershot that it never retains any forward momentum from one scene to the next. The comic relief, with a plot device lifted directly from An American Werewolf in London, is downright painful, and since the shuffling zombies look like they were imported from the music video for Michael Jackson’s “Thriller,” it’s clear that here’s a monster movie that will be providing nothing in the way of thrills or chills. The CGI technicians are, as expected, kept busy busy busy, but the effects remain impersonal and ineffectual. Through movies both good and bad, Cruise has always made his presence and star power known, but that’s shockingly not the case here. For the first time, the actor is entirely colorless and disposable — aside from a paycheck so loaded with zeroes that it was probably heavy to lift, there’s no reason for him to be here. Nick Morton is more a token hero than an actual character, so bereft of personality that we really don’t care when horrible things happen to his character. And following last year’s lamentable Jack Reacher sequel, it also shows that Cruise might finally be fully succumbing to his ego — he’s no longer playing mere mortals but instead supermen and gods revered by all. Along with Cruise, nobody else makes much of an impression — that includes Crowe, who can sometimes be the best thing in a bad movie (e.g. Man of Steel). In fact, it’s Crowe’s character — make that characters — that should prove particularly vexing to anyone who claims to care at all about what Universal is doing to its beloved legacy. Jekyll’s role in this picture is ridiculous — he’s an eccentric
doctor who wants to locate, isolate and destroy the evil in the world — and further thoughts that the studio would provide him with a Hyde origin story in his own movie down the road are immediately dispelled when the filmmakers impatiently cram in a couple of transformation scenes. For the record, Hyde isn’t the frightening madman, the terrible creature, the tortured id audiences know and love and fear. Instead, Hyde is basically Russell Crowe in a bronze tanning spray, carrying on like an irascible drunk uncle who’s had too much spiked punch during the family Christmas party. Then again, a perpetual state of inebriation might be the only way to get through something as grueling and ghastly as The Mummy. While several screen adaptations of Daphne du Maurier works remain highly revered by film fans and scholars — specifically, Alfred Hitchcock’s Rebecca and The Birds and Nicolas Roeg’s Don’t Look Now — the 1952 drama My Cousin Rachel has fallen by the wayside. Today, it’s mainly remembered for nabbing Richard Burton a ridiculous Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actor — ridiculous not because he’s bad in the film, but ridiculous because he’s the lead actor and appears in almost every scene in the picture. The new cinematic take of the tale, also named My Cousin Rachel ( ), finds Sam Claflin (Finnick in The Hunger Games franchise) cast in the Burton role — he’s Philip, a young Englishman who convinces himself that his beloved uncle and protector Ambrose, who succumbed to dementia and soon died of a brain tumor, was actually murdered by Ambrose’s new wife. That would be Philip’s cousin Rachel (Rachel Weisz), and the young heir plans to confront her when she arrives at his Cornwall estate for a visit. Instead, he immediately succumbs to her charms and proceeds to act in increasingly immature and irresponsible ways. On balance, both screen versions of My Cousin Rachel are of comparable quality.
The 1952 version provides better ambience as well as a revelatory performance by Burton in his first American-made film. (Claflin isn’t bad, but let’s just say no one will be worrying whether to place him in the lead or supporting category come Oscar time.) Where this new version improves upon its predecessor is in the character of Rachel: She’s far more developed here, and Weisz gives a nicely shaded performance that eclipses the one given by Olivia de Havilland back in ’52. The central mystery of whether Rachel is evil or innocent reverberates throughout both adaptations, but there’s no question that Weisz delivers yet another master class in acting. A documentary filmmaker best known for the absorbing SeaWorld exposé Blackfish, Gabriela Cowperthwaite makes her dramatization debut with Megan Leavey ( ), an occasionally harrowing and always touching look at the bond that developed between a Marine and her combat dog. Working from a script credited to three writers (including Bridesmaids’ Oscar-nominated scribe Annie Mumolo), Cowperthwaite opts to bypass the macho swaggering favored by the likes of Clint Eastwood and Peter Berg in their modern-warfare flicks to fashion a more emotionally involving tale — this one examining how a young fuckup named Megan Leavey (Kate Mara) only finds purpose and direction in her life after she joins the Marines and takes part in a program wherein soldiers work alongside dogs trained to sniff out explosive devices. Megan is assigned to handle a temperamental German shepherd named Rex, and they end up partaking in two deployments in Iraq during the 2000s. The Iraqi scenes are intense, but equally compelling are the stateside sequences that find Megan fighting to gain custody of Rex, even going so far as to enlist the aid of Democratic Senator Chuck Schumer (since, as has nauseatingly been proven time and again, those on the other side of the aisle don’t give a damn about this country’s veterans). Like other conscientious movies dealing with wartime, Megan Leavey understands that many of the most important fights continue to be waged long after the actual battlefields have been vacated. !

Vintage Lords celebrate the past with vast collection of vintage vehicles
BY KATIE MURAWSKI | firstname.lastname@example.org
bout 30 miles north of Winston-Salem, out of the city and into the windy country roads of state Highway 772 in Madison, North Carolina, there are a string of three buildings on the left side of the road. Walking into these buildings owned by Steven Cole of Vintage Lords will transport some back at least 50 years. Inside of these unsuspecting, vintage relics themselves, a vast collection of vintage cars and motorcycles sit and await their turn at being swooned at, restored or resurrected. Jason Lord is the founder and creator of Vintage Lords, which buys, sells and collects vintage cars and motorcycles. Lord said he became friends with Cole after having him “as such a good customer” for a while. Lord said four years ago, Cole offered him his shop space so the both of them could work on restoring and collecting together. Lord said his long-time friend Everett Miller, a vintage car mechanic joined Vintage Lords to help with the restoration process. Lord said Miller has helped him more times than he can count. “I am out here to help Jason and Steve with whatever they need,” Miller said while working on fixing the head and taillights of a 1949 Jeepster. Lord said he has been collecting for over 15 years and Cole started collecting vintage motorcycles eight years ago. Lord runs his own motorcycle dealership, Kevin Powell Motorsports and has even worked with Joe Kiser, a well-known, family business motorcycle dealer based out of Winston-Salem and attributes these to some of his luck with his collection. “We have been doing it for so long, people will just call us and we got people looking at stuff for us,” Lord said. Lord said his fascination with cars and motorcycles started when he was 16-years-old. “I got into my fair share of trouble with the fast cruisers,” Lord said with a chuckle. “So that is when I got into the older and slower stuff.” Lord said Cole has been in the motorcycle realm longer than he has, and his area of expertise is Harley Davidson motorcycles. Cole calls collecting a hobby of his as well as a better way to spend money.

Tanna Beroth, Jason Lord, Steven Cole and Everett Miller, the Vintage Lords. They are posing next to their current work in progress, a 1949 Jeepster with broken head and taillights. “It is better than putting your money in stocks, because you can’t see it,” Cole said. While collecting these vintage bikes and cars, Cole sees his investment develop, flourish and he gets to tinker around with his motorized relics. Lord said their hobby is a good way to spend money because “the end result will always go up in value.” For Cole, the physical appearance and tangibility of owning these vintage vehicles is what draws him into collecting the most. “You get to look at them, get them going and ride them,” Cole said. Vintage Lords’ motorcycle collection dates back from the 1940s to 1960s, with some models from the 1970s, however there is nothing else past the 1970s, Lord said. Among these older, vintage bikes are the brands, Honda, Harley Davidson, Suzuki, Motessa, Yamaha, Kawasaki, Sears and Zundapp. Although, intact motorcycles are not the only things that Vintage Lord collects. Vintage Lords has in its possession a 1971 Honda 600 cc
Former post office and building of the 1880s that has some cars and antiques inside.

Lord said many people let their vintage cars sit outside and rust to the point where they lose their value. “As far as us buying, restoring and selling to others who’ll restore them, we are saving a little bit of the past,” Lord said. Cole said the area of Dillard in Madison, North Carolina, is fitting for Vintage Lords’ location because of all the motorcycle

Lord said he prefers Hondas as his favorite type of car and motorcycle while Cole said it is a tough decision to choose his favorite motorcycle Vintage Lords has in their collection. He said he really likes the 1946 Harley Davidson as well as others he has not heard of, such as bikes from Germany and Russia. “My favorite bike though is the [Honda] Dreams, we have a bigger collection of them,” Cole said. “To me, those look like a piece of art.” Lord and Cole said Vintage Lords has 10 to 15 restored vehicles that run at all times. Lord said that number fluctuates, however, because they are constantly buying and selling. In terms of restoration, Cole said it takes their motorcycle mechanic two to three days to fix up a motorcycle in good condition. With cars or cycles that need to be totally restored, it could take months. WWW.YESWEEKLY.COM
Lord and Cole not only collect their motorized pieces of art, but they also sell them. Lord said the biggest sale they have ever made on a car they worked on was $50,000 and at least $20,000 to $30,000 motorcycles. However, Lord said they will be moving away from the constant buying and selling of motorcycles to a more collecting and curating process for their future plans: opening a museum in their shop. Lord said he wants the museum so people can come and experience their little pieces of the past. “So that people can come look at the bikes and with the older guys—try to take them back a little when they were young,” Lord said. He said he wants people to be able to take something away with them when they come, such as sharing what they liked or what the bike or car said to them and the story behind it. “Every bike in there has got a story,” Cole said.

First-ever Porchfest rocks the Dunleath Historic Neighborhood BY KATIE MURAWSKI | email@example.com Twenty-three front porches spread out over five streets in Greensboro’s Dunleath Historic Neighborhood hosted a free community-centered, family-friendly music festival June 10 from noon to 5 p.m. The festival, called Porchfest, was organized to celebrate local musicians, residents of the neighborhood and attract outlying community members to come and enjoy the day. Porchfest was not only a front porch live music festival, but a place where attendees donated canned food for the local food bank, and supported one another. Ghassan’s mediterranean food truck, along with neighbors selling roasted corn and popcorn showed up to feed attendees and make the experience more filling. Shawn Patch, of the twangy-rock band The Radials and 11-year resident of the neighborhood, got the idea for Porchfest from one of his fellow musician friends who lived in Atlanta where something similar was done in their neighborhood. Last fall, Patch said he went to the neighborhood board to pitch the idea. Patch said they liked the idea and he was able to work with the special events committee. He said this process was about eight to 10 months in the making but the whole thing was organized in about five months. “It has far exceeded our expectations in terms of success,” Patch said. “Initially we had discussed this in the committee, we thought we would consider it a success if we got most neighbors to participate and volunteer in some way.” Patch said they not only got the involvement and support of neighbors, but also many people outside of the community, which is exactly what the committee wanted. “It really brought the community together in a positive way,” Patch said. “We already have a tight knit community so this is a better way to capitalize on that.” There were several neighbors, including Patch, who volunteered to perform and host as well as musicians within their own networks that expressed interest in performing. “This neighborhood has a very strong sense of community,” Patch said. “Most of us know each other, fairly well and it is the kind of place where you could be standing outside talking to a neighbor at 5 o’clock in the afternoon and someone else will see the two of you having a conversation and they’ll stop. Before you know it, there are five or six or 10 people out with a glass

Patch said this is not only a chance to enjoy music, but also to share with everyone else in this neighborhood. “We had a couple goals and one was to get as much diversity in music with different genres so we could appeal more audiences,” Patch said. “We also wanted to get neighborhood diversity, we did not want it to be focused on one street or block, we wanted to make sure that the entire neighborhood participating.” Miranda Oakley, the front porch host for J. Timber, a classic rock and R&B artist. Louisa Taylor, fellow porch dweller with Oakley said J. Timber’s music is like a mix between Lenny Kravitz, Otis Redding and Marvin Gaye. “When I saw his description, I told my husband ‘we have to go there,’” Taylor said. Oakley said Porchfest was really fun for her and for the community.
“There is so many people here, there is a mix of neighbors and and people who aren’t neighbors and it is great to see everyone out and about,” Oakley said. “It shows off what our neighborhood does and how we are all a big community.” William von der Goltz from the latin Jazz-fusion band Nueva Voz Band that played on Fifth Avenue at Porchfest. Von der Goltz said the Dunleath Historic Neighborhood and Porchfest reminded him of downtown New Orleans. “I think [Porchfest] is a great thing to do, it gives opportunity for musicians to show their art,” Von der Goltz said. “I think it is a great venue for a neighborhood, I had no idea this was here.” During his show, Von der Goltz was able to show off his new electronic Cajon from Roland that has 30 different sounds, he said this was the perfect show to bring his new instrument to because it got people curious and asking questions about the instrument. Robert Chrismon grew up in the Dun-
leath Neighborhood and came back to celebrate Porchfest with his wife and son. Chrismon and his family were watching the folk and traditional band Bloom perform on Percy Street. “It is a lot of fun to come back and seeing what is going on,” Chrismon said. “It is cool to see a couple that came from the same program as my son in and doing as well as they are.” Chrismon said he and his family chose to watch Bloom because the band members recently graduated from Weaverville academy and Weaverville is where Chrismon’s son goes for classical guitar. Lars Farabee, homeowner in the Dunleath Historic Neighborhood and porch host for Bloom. Farabee said he did not know who he was going to be hosting the band. “They have done pretty awesome,” Farabee said. “We would have them back next year if we had the chance. They were great for this kind of venue, they were super professional and this kind of event is something gets people outside and talking to each other. This is something we have looked forward to having.” Olivia Moore, Julia Houghton and Evan Campfield make up the band Bloom. Moore and Houghton are graduates of Weaverville Academy and Campfield attends UNCG in the music program. They all said Porchfest was a really fun and positive experience for them and their band. “At one point there were about 60 people out here watching us,” Moore said. “It was one of our biggest crowds for sure,” Houghton said. Mebane Ham volunteer and special events committee member said Porchfest was intended to help neighborhood camaraderie and to let people see how great the neighborhood is. ‘I grew up in a neighborhood like this,” Ham said. “I can walk around the corner and know who is in the house, their dog’s names and the kids’ names. It is a family style neighborhood.” Patch said the committee is already planning on doing Porchfest again next year, even though an official date has not been set yet. “That is one of things we are going to have to look at,” Patch said. “Whether we want to do it again this time of yearwhether it is spring or fall, but yes, we want to do this again not just because of how much interest of the neighborhood, but also of the broader city. There has been a big demand for it. !
The Bellevue Estate gives house shows a different reputation BY JAMES ROSS KEIFER When the weekend falls upon us inevitably we desire something to catch our interests. Whether it be a house party, an art exhibit or an intimate performance, it’s rather odd when we find ourselves at all three in one setting. One of the niceties of having a house show is that it removes some of the awkwardness found in music venues. House shows also boast some performer friendly features. Touring acts can generally crash at the house their playing to avoid constant lodging costs. Living rooms are easier to fill in attendance than a concert venue, and a performer doesn’t get skimped on payment by dealing with a percentage cut for a venue’s operating costs. But what most sells the idea of a house show is the general versatility and comfort. Whether it be filling empty wall space with original art, having a dinner party or setting aside some space in the living room for an acoustic duo to play, just hosting the event in a domestic setting promotes a relaxed and approachable vibe. The appeal behind house shows lies more to the fact that you’ve been honored with an invitation into someone’s own abode, making you feel like a privileged and select few, and not a member of the general public. On Friday night I found myself at a house on the cusp of downtown Greensboro. The crumbling cement steps led into a front yard that was beginning to be overrun with vegetation. Right in front of the porch there was a scenic table supporting a flickering candle, with chairs littered around for people to converse under the moonlight. The porch was populated with a fair amount of 20-something-year-olds, some smoking cigarettes and others sipping on nondescript, probably alcoholic, beverages. Inside of the house there were several rooms elaborately decorated for visitors to explore. One off to the side of the main entrance had a mantle covered in candles, WWW.YESWEEKLY.COM
and directly across from the mantle was an American flag draped over the entire wall in a room filled with bright lamps that made the room warm after a while. In the corner of the room was and assortment of mirrors, each a different size and haphazardly placed. Leading out of the living room was a hallway that forced a more claustrophobic atmosphere by tarps hanging on the sides of the room, and a tarp on the floor that was covered in small rocks. The rocks made movement across the floor a little challenging, and one had to tiptoe around small a mirrored pedestal centered in the hallway. In between the two rooms a band had set up, a musician taking up each corner of the room. Ranging from acoustic bass, to synthesizer and banjo, the band played heavily improvised and unrehearsed jazzlike music which changed depending on the mood of the audience. Sebastien Carpentier and Victor Glass were the organizers of the show and the residents of what they calls their house, “The Bellevue Estate.” “Victor and I wanted to turn our house, The Bellevue Estate, into a space where our friends, as well as artists in the local area, could come and turn it into whatever they want,” Carpentier said. Performer John Taylor Viars contributed to both the music and artistic preparation for the show. He talked about how he wanted aspects of the show to create figurative thought as well as literal perceptions. “We thought about rooms people might move in between, and the spaces like the halls, how we might render motion between spaces, how we can take advantage of that perception of a performance,
or render things that were unexpected for people that might of expected a very direct experience,” he commented. Viars said that he sought to create a new experience for attendees by combining visual and musical aesthetics. “What we meant to do was transform rooms of the house for the sake of experiencing a space in a new way,” Viars explained. “Previously Bellevue Estate hosted visual artists and musical artists, and we can had the idea to abstract both of those worlds to a degree.” Carpentier said they want to provide a space where people can get together to talk about art, whether it is music, visual or conceptual.
“I think it’s important to have this kind of space for a community to thrive because I feel like there aren’t that many places to do something like this,” Carpentier said. “There may be gallery spaces, but usually that’s more commercial, you have to pay money to do it, and we’re doing everything for free, so It’s like a more DIY gallery space or event to do whatever we want.” Glass said when people hear the term, “house show,” they automatically assume that the space is merely a music venue. With The Bellevue Estate, Glass said it is more than a live music venue. “We’re interested in showcasing and celebrating all creative mediums and outlets, music included, while still managing to apply the hospitality found in most homes and the same do-it-yourself ethos and attitude commonly found in most house show venues,” Glass said. The Bellevue Estate plans to hold more exhibitions and are in the process of coming up ideas for next month. To receive more information about upcoming events, visit their Facebook page. !

[GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) It is a wise Gemini who thinks carefully before he/she speaks at this time. You are tempted to respond without thinking of the consequences. Watch your tendency to be critical without knowing the circumstances of the “other”. [CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You may be especially chatty this week. Words have higher importance than usual. You could be writing a speech, teaching or mentoring. It would serve you well to attend social gatherings and generally put yourself “out there.” One or more people are likely to enter your life who help you make the connections that need to come next. [LEO (July 23 to August 22) You are in a position to help others negotiate a reasonable peace. Activities involving high tech appliances are favored. Your knowledge will help others adjust to new electronics or a change in directions. A lover or significant other may ask for your intentions. Be realistic. Don’t promise more than is likely.
REAL PEOPLE REAL DESIRE REAL FUN.
[VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) A project that you began in late fall of 2016 is now coming to its first fulfillment. The outcome is apparent for you and all to see. The probability is that this creation is more success than failure. Don’t listen to that inner Critic who can find fault with every little thing. It lies. [LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) A debt may be repaid for work you have done in the past. It is possible that you will be called upon to give your time or energy beyond what you intended. Note how you are feeling as you do this. If you begin to feel resentment, set some boundaries around how far you will go. [SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) This is a good time to look over your financial resources. You may want to move things around a bit. Travel may be on your mind. Alternatively, you may have a desire to contact people at a distance. Aspects favor your use of the internet, research, or study. Writing projects are given an energy boost.

[SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) You may feel isolated or as though no one around you can possibly understand who or what you are. In some way life circumstances may be preventing you from communicating. The inner critic could overrun your mind if you allow it. Remember that feelings come and go like waves. They never remain the same. [CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) The Goats live always with a strong internal Critic. Sometimes it is louder than others and it rarely tells the whole truth. During this period you may be hearing a dark “tape” about your inability to organize your life according to someone else’s standard. Take good care of your physical health now. [AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) You have a choice of mood this week. On one hand you may be “hearing” a load of internal criticism, which is probably not substantiated. On the other, there are some options to get outside of yourself and play freely or take a short, refreshing trip. It’s obvious which is the better for your mental health. [PISCES (February 19 to March 20) One of your planetary rulers, Neptune, turns retrograde this week. This suggests that one or more anxieties will go underground for a few months and you will actually feel better than before. You know that sometimes your imagination is just too potent and you react to it as though it were the real thing. [ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You will be concentrating on bringing a lot of details into a cohesive whole. Perhaps you are building something with multiple parts. The focus may be on vehicles or personal property. Or maybe you have a jumble of ideas that need to be sorted into a coherent plan. Be quiet and steady your mind. Make lists to ground yourself. [TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) A “teacher” comes into your life to help you learn more about yourself and your relationship(s). Follow your instincts about where you need to be, particularly if that includes a new social situation. There may be someone who gives you needed information or guidance.

SIGHT FOR THOR EYES
I’m a 35-year-old masculine gay man. I’ve had relationships with (masculine) gay men, but I’m often attracted to masculine straight men. I’m not looking Amy Alkon to “turn” them, and I’m ready for a Advice relationship, so I’m Goddess concerned that I’m so frequently attracted to men who won’t be interested in me. What is this about? Do I need therapy? — Worried Gay Guy Like you, I happen to like men who look like their hobbies are chopping down trees and going to war with foreign powers. I am not attracted to femmy men in body glitter with My Little Pony haircuts. Luckily for me, the sort of people I am attracted to did not require me to come out to my parents (“Mom and Dad...I-I-I’m straight”), nor are my preferences considered reason for suspicion that I might be a self-loathing heterosexual. As for you, because of the ugly views and behaviors toward gays, sure, it’s possible that your being attracted to straight men is some sort of internalized version of those camps for “praying away the gay.” (If that seems to be a possibility, yes, you should look into that — perhaps with a therapist’s help.) But if you were really so self-loathing and in denial about being gay, wouldn’t you just be sneaking glances at all the manly men on your way to mar-
rying a woman and buying a house with a lot of closet space? Your being a manly man who’s into boyfriends who wield power tools not intended for hairstyling might be explained by research on “assortative mating.” This basically means “like mates with like” — reflecting how we seem motivated to choose mates who are similar to us on various levels, from age to looks to race to personality. In the gay world, psychologist J. Michael Bailey’s research finds that masculine gay men tend to prefer masculine partners (Conan the Barbarian versus Conan the Featherboa-tarian). Increased similarity between partners is associated with happier, longer-lasting relationships. This makes sense, considering that more similarity means more compatibility — from shared beliefs to shared interests and activities. So, it’s good news you’re eyeing the manlier men, even if many are ultimately “for display purposes only.” Of course, it is possible that you’re telling yourself you want a relationship but picking people totally unavailable for one. (For straight women, this often involves a one-sided affair with a member of the British royal family.) If that isn’t the case, why worry that your ideal relationship is basically a nature preserve for chest hair and testosterone? Just accept that it might take a little more effort to find a boyfriend for whom “contouring” is not skillful makeup application but helping you get the back of your head with the Weedwhacker before your welding group arrives.

I went through a crazy party girl period in my 20s. My boyfriend recently asked me how many men I’d slept with before him. I told him, and he freaked out at the number — despite his having his own wild past. Now I wish I hadn’t been honest. What should I have said instead? — Glum It’s usually best to keep mum if the number of men is something like “I’m not exactly sure because the census takers keep fainting from exhaustion while they’re tallying up my total.” There is a sexual double standard, though it doesn’t come from men wanting to keep women’s sex drives in park (which wouldn’t exactly serve their interest). What’s telling, however, are sex differences in jealousy — specifically, jealousy over infidelity. Evolutionary psychologist David Buss finds that men across cultures are most distressed by sexual infidelity — the sex acts themselves. Though women aren’t exactly “yeah, whatevs” about their partner’s doing the nudie tootie with another woman, women are substantially more distressed by his being emotionally gaga about someone else. (A woman’s
first question is inevitably: “But do you luvvvv her?!”) These differences in freakouts dovetail with men’s and women’s differing evolutionary concerns. Women evolved to worry that their partner would divert his investment of time, energy, and resources in her and her children to a rival. Men, however, have a different worry. Because a man can never really be sure whether a child is his (“paternity uncertainty”), any sex act his partner has with another man could lead to his spending decades feeding and caring for some other dude’s genetic offspring. The thing is, having a crazy party girl period doesn’t mean you’re unethical. It’s possible that pointing that out to your boyfriend might help. If, in the future, another boyfriend asks for your sexual tally, be generally honest — you were a bit of a party girl — but avoid giving any specific number that suggests that this involved much of the Democratic Party (and a few straggling Greens). !
