Guide recommends Todd Alsup

By: Michael Paoletta
   
Todd Alsup is on the road these days. His spring tour has focused on colleges and universities in the northeast. The tour culminates June 4 at the Rockwood Music Hall in New York. The trek precedes the release of Alsup's self-released, eponymous debut album (toddalsup.com). The 11 well-crafted songs on Todd Alsup, all penned or co-penned by the artist, are a gorgeous blend of soul and R&B, rock and pop. Consider Alsup the bastard child of Ben Folds and Robin Thicke as produced by the Fray -- or, in the case of Todd Alsup, Steve Greenwell, James Walsh and Jeremy Sklarsky. The lead single, "Let's Have a Party," is an exuberant pop jam. "The Way It Goes" is a heartfelt ballad that spotlights Alsup's late-'70s/early-'80s Billy Joel influences. The disco-splashed "The Only Thing" recalls the vibrancy of Stevie Wonder's "I Wish." Album closer "The Good Fight" is feisty and anthemic. Timeless, too.

Aural fixation

Rocker Josh Zuckerman has a plain and simple mantra: "Be who you are. It's all about love." Such words form the foundation of his latest work, called Got Love?

Hot under the collar. JC Leyendecker's Arrow collar advertisements often seemed more than a bit homoerotic.

Treasures of Gay Art

By: John Mitzel
   
Treasures of Gay Art (All Saints Press, $69.95) is an extraordinary collection celebrating the history of gay male art. Edited by Peter Weiermair, it includes everything from classic male physique photography to overtly sexual images. The breadth of the collection from the Leslie/Lohman Gay Art Foundation is impressive. You'll recognize the names of familiar artists, but there are also plenty of new delights from lesser-known and up- and-coming contributors. And it is sad to reflect that we have lost so many of the great artists in this volume. What's important is that archivists like Charles Leslie and Fritz Lohman have created a historical document and a thing of great beauty. This is a title any serious collector should have on the shelf.
Jun '09    Sex, lies and videotape
By: Michael Bronski
   

It is almost impossible to convey the sheer terror and insanity of the early years of the AIDS epidemic to people who were not yet alive at the time. I teach a course at Dartmouth College entitled; 'Plague and Politics: The Cultural Impact on AIDS on US Culture,' and am always amazed how little my students -- aged 19 to 22 -- know about the epidemic.
