            by Jimmy Boegle
          
          
          
            In 2007, Tucson Weekly readers decided in our annual Best of Tucson® poll that Sushi Ten had the city's Best Sushi. It was the seventh consecutive win for the Speedway Boulevard restaurant. But in 2008, Sushi Ten didn't win—nor was it one of the runners-up. It hasn't come close to the winners' circle since. As Sushi Ten was falling in the hearts and minds of Tucson Weekly readers, it was in the midst of a series of ownership changes that…

            Some tremendous acting forces deliver The Kids Are All Right, one of the best films I've ever seen about family and the constant struggle to keep things harmonious. Annette Bening, Julianne Moore, Mark Ruffalo, Josh Hutcherson and Mia Wasikowska make this funny and blisteringly honest film one to be cherished. Jules and Nic (Moore and Bening) are a lesbian couple with two children, Joni and Laser (Wasikowska and Hutcherson), conceived through artificial insemination. Joni is 18, and therefore old enough…

            Although Mat Brooke and Jenn Ghetto formed Carissa's Wierd in Tucson in the mid-'90s—they're natives—they found their footing once they settled in Seattle, becoming one of the most revered acts in the Pacific Northwest until splitting up in 2003. Ghetto continues to record under the name S, while Brooke helped Ben Bridwell, another Carissa's Wierd veteran, get his Band of Horses running before forming Grand Archives. Perhaps if they had signed that Sub Pop contract that they turned down, the…

            by Tim Vanderpool
          
          
          
            Nobody would accuse Rosemont Copper of enjoying a cozy relationship with government overseers. At times, in fact, their dealings have been downright snarky. For instance, company officials have repeatedly grumbled about delays in getting their proposed mine approved by the Coronado National Forest. Although the mine itself would be on private land, the company needs adjacent Forest Service acreage upon which to pile its tailings and perform mine-related activities. Nor are Rosemont folks pleased with discussions about some current residents…

        Our cheap food comes at a high, unhealthy, unsustainable price
          
            by Mike Callicrate
          
          
          
            We have the food system we asked for. There's a reason a burger at McDonald's sells for about a buck. There's a reason the food is of such poor quality in places where healthy nutrition is most important—our schools, hospitals and nursing homes. What we support prospers; what we feed grows. If we support Walmart, Walmart will prosper. If we demand $1 burgers at McDonald's and insist that surplus food donated by the U.S. Department of Agriculture be served in…

2010-08-05 HAIRSPRAYFIREANDGIRLS: I Am. And I've Been Looking for You (self-released) (weekly)

        by Annie Holub
          
          
          
            Based on the lineup alone, HAIRSPRAYFIREANDGIRLS has the makings of a great rock band: Josh Levine (Red Switch, Apocalyptics) on vocals and guitar, Ernie Gardner (Red Switch) on drums, Noah Gabbard (Bombs for the Bored) on guitar, and Justin Lillie (Chango Malo, The Gentlemen of Monster Island) on bass. Veterans of the Tucson music scene know that pretty much any project involving Levine is driven by melodic electric-guitar hooks and punk vocal deliveries, and HAIRSPRAYFIREANDGIRLS is no exception—except this time,…

        LTW's 'A Thousand Clowns' is missing a needed sense of personal conflict and compromise
          
            by Sherilyn Forrester
          
          
          
            It can be hard to figure out why a theater chooses to present certain plays—and I'm certainly wondering about Live Theatre Workshop's choice to produce Herb Gardner's A Thousand Clowns. Of course, most theaters regularly commit to re-creating pieces which are decent representations of their period, and have solid scripts and interesting and durable themes. But if a theater takes on such a production, it needs to offer fresh, enlivening insights, and have the resources to offer a truly authentic…

            The Valley of the Moon Fantasy Tour isn't new to anyone who's lived in Tucson for any amount of time. After all, the tour has been going on since the park was built by George Phar Legler in the 1920s—and the fact that the tour can capture the imaginations of children and adults time after time is nothing short of astounding. As part of Tucson's Birthday, the all-volunteer-run Valley of the Moon will be offering the Fantasy Tour on Saturday,…

        Claim: 'Tales From the Outskirts' Piece Was Condescending Nick Smith is an entertaining writer. More importantly, he's a very good writer. In "Tales the Outskirts: Ajo" (July 22), however, his tone—as a very French friend of mine would say—is off. Ajo, a non-incorporated community sweetly and inconveniently distant from Tucson by 135 miles, is a bit more than a "poor man's Green Valley," a clever but unfortunate phrase which is condescendingly offensive on so many levels. Ajo's unemployment stats are…

            The Abbey Eat + Drink The owners of jaxKitchen are opening a new restaurant called The Abbey Eat + Drink at 6960 E.

Brian Metzger says he and his wife, Sandy, envision the new place as a casual neighborhood restaurant where diners can experience "the freshest seasonal food; impeccable, consistent fun; and a place where you can forget you're in Tucson for a while."

            We're just a bunch of music nerds." That's how keyboardist Cassie Van Gelder and, by implication, her three partners in the up-and-coming Tucson rock-band Seashell Radio describe themselves while explaining the diverse range of music produced by their efforts. While Van Gelder and cellist Esmé Schwall have classical and jazz backgrounds, drummer Fen Ikner and guitarist Courtney Robbins grew up playing in rock bands. Drawing from progressive and classic rock, folk, alternative, jazz and classical, and incorporating the occasional sound…

            A NIGHT OF SCREAMING NORTH LA CHOLLA BOULEVARD JULY 5, 2:43 A.M. A confused and intoxicated young woman went to jail after a disturbance at a hospital, according to a Pima County Sheriff's Department report. Deputies responded to a verbal-domestic-violence call at Northwest Medical Center, 6200 N. La Cholla Blvd., and met with a female being held by hospital security. She was screaming, waving her arms and clenching her fists. She was able to give her name; however, when asked…

        Tucsonans need to support Second Saturdays Downtown
          
            by Randy Serraglio
          
          
          
            Once upon a time in Tucson history, there was a regular phenomenon known as Downtown Saturday Night. Thousands of people would converge on the city center to engage in loosely organized milling about. Vendors lined the streets; bands played in the alleys; shops and art galleries stayed open late; and—at least for one night per month—the downtown atmosphere was electric. DSN really took off in the early '90s, just after I arrived in Tucson, and it was through this event…

            REASONS FOR OPTIMISM We're entering the final stages of what has been a topsy-turvy summer for live music in Tucson: There were good weeks, and there were painfully slow ones. And there was, of course, SB 1070, which kept some touring acts away, while others simply ignored it. What will it all mean in the end? It's too early to tell. While the boycott organization Sound Strike continues to add members, Artists for Action (vivaarizona.org), which hopes to lure artists…

            Ultimately, a record can be like any other work of art, the product of hours upon hours of painstaking attention to detail and consideration of tone. The Love Language's Libraries is a testament to that process: Recorded entirely by Stuart McLamb and producer/engineer BJ Burton, Libraries shimmers with the same intricate aura of a Bruegel painting, a symphony or a novel. The sounds, rhythms and melodies are laid out in patterns polished for optimal effect, and the sheer amount of…

You can stream just about any song you want online for free.

            On a beautiful day at Kino Springs, five miles east of Nogales, Ariz., Alex Mills is examining the southern end of his paradise, now lost to the border fence. His view to the north includes high-desert mesquite and grassland all the way up to Rio Rico, a speck on the landscape. And to the east, the Patagonia Mountains loom in all their remoteness and mystery, faintly purple under the winter sun. But to the south, where Arizona meets Mexico, a…
