A THOUSAND HORSES - SOUTHERNALITY Republic Nashville A Thousand Horses come thundering out the gate with their hit single "Smoke," and the reward for them and their fans is 'Southernality,' an album that defines the band and their sound. Described by their press notes to be "a hybrid of Lynyrd Skynyrd, the Allman Brothers, and Black Crowes, wrapped up in a modern- country context," they come out at full gallop with the rockin' "First Time," lower- ing the decibels on SHeaven is Close," hitting the road via "Travelin' Man," soothing the pain of lost love with "Tennessee Whiskey," cel- ebrating "Sunday Morning," and marking the mid-point with the raucous *Southern- airy."

Among the good things that happened were the 12 nominations it re- ceived at the 2015 Tony Awards, including "Best Mu- sical." Ironically, it was the Academy Award-winning film of the same name that inspired this classic tale to head to Broadway. The first act's performance's includes, "I Got Rhythm," "The Man I Love," "Liza," "'S Wonderful," and orchestral music -- "Concerto in F," "Second Prelude," and "Sec- ond Rhapsody/Cuban Over- ture." Second act contents have "Fidgety Feet," "Who Cares?/For You, For Me, for Evermore," "But Not for Me," "I'll Build a Stair- way to Paradise," the title cut "An American in Paris," and "They Can't Take That Away from Me."

HARVARD PROF: AMERICA DIVIDED BY WEALTH The biggest challenge fac- ing America, according to Harvard Professor Robert Putnam, is a growing eco- nomic gap threatening to divide America, making the rich richer and the poor poorer. I didn't need a Harvard professor telling me what I, and most of America's staggering middle-class has known for many years. In his book, "Our Kids, the American Dream in Crisis," Putnam warns, ff we don't do something we are "heading towards an America that I don't think most of us want to live in. Two Americas, a divided country." Personally, as far as the over-burdened middle-class is concerned, that train al- ready left the station. RAISING THE AGE OF SMOKING The towns of Walpole and Arlington have now raised the age to buy smokes from 18 to 21 years old. Both towns see it as a health issue, but when all surrounding towns are still selling cigarettes to 18 year olds, that will send sales down as folks leave town to buy their smokes. This means lower sales on other store products too. Local towns raising the age to purchase cigarettes is one of those feel-good and do- something measures that turn out meaningless be- cause of the unintended con- sequences. SAY OUI TO BASTILLE DAY Attention all bon vivants, when it comes to the jo/e de vivre, no one does it better than the French Cultural Center and its 40th Annual Bastille Day Party to cel- ebrate the storming of the Bastille to be held on Friday, July 10th from 6:00 pm until 11:00 pm on Marlborough Street (between Berkeley & Clarendon), Boston, MA As someone who just found his hidden French side, I say Bastille Day is beaucoup.

I remember back then watching, old movies starring the Dead End Kids and my neighborhood looked just like theirs without ac- tor Pat O'Malley. That's all gone today after the neighborhood started getting gentrified back in the late '70s. The latest place to go condo is the former 19th century Holy Trinity Church on Shawmut Avenue that once served working-class German immigrants in Bos- ton. After the church closed, it was turned into a homeless shelter for awhile and now it will soon become a luxury housing site. I agree with Boston Globe writer Joan Vennochi who asked, *Do luxury condos at a South End church rip the soul out of Boston?" Also, why did the B.R.A. allow the developer to not be required to include low-income units there? 20 Years Street Inn L-R: Carol Passacantilli, Nicole Passacantilli Dispena and Irene Corolla Constantine.
