Hook, Line, and Slasher: Hookman is Terrific and Terrifying

By:

By spilling forth everything meant to be contained in the fragile receptacles of human bodies—blood, guts, brains, you name it—the slasher genre appeals to the perverse in people. Hookman, the latest production by the Black Theatre Ensemble, does just that, but with a culturally conscious twist. Written by Lauren Yee, Hookman sheds more than blood…

CV: The Shins, Heartworms

By:

The Shins have never been a band to take risks. After accomplishing the impossible by striking a remarkably original, balanced, and mature sound on their first record, growth seemed both unnecessary and improbable. Heartworms, the band’s first release in five years, gives weight to this sentiment. Despite being a dutiful continuation of The Shins’ traditional…

CV: The Orwells, Terrible Human Beings

By:

At first glance, Terrible Human Beings, The Orwells’ latest album, has all the makings of a cult classic. The title is shameless, the cover art screams 90’s alternative with its platinum-blonde Uma Thurman look-a-like, and the track list promises chaos with songs like “They Put A Body In The Bayou” and “M.A.D.” All of these…

What’s that? You were rejected from all the ABP trips you applied to and failed to make adequate backup plans? The best you could think up was an impromptu road trip to Ohio, abandoning all hopes of returning to Georgetown with a sun-kissed glow? Same! Here’s a playlist to keep all my fellow road trippers…

Bands You Should Know: Pinegrove

By:

For Evan Stephens Hall, the ampersand is more than semi-alphabetic—it’s prophetic. Hall, lead singer of indie rock band Pinegrove, has been deeply moved by the symbolism behind the character “&.”  He’s given it prime real estate in Pinegrove cover art, etched it onto merch and, as if that wasn’t enough, inked it onto his upper…

In a music industry saturated with overproduced and unsatisfying pop tunes, G. Love and Special Sauce keeps it old school. Although the three-man combo group has come quite a way from their 90’s ska roots, their sound remains soulful. Lead singer and guitarist Garret Dutton’s punchy vocals meet Jim Prescott’s laid-back bass lines at a…

In a 1961 interview with Jaqueline Kennedy, Sander Vancour said to the new first lady, “If I may say so, without disrespect, every time I’ve been in the White House it always seems to be a rather cold and austere place.” Director Pablo Larraín takes these words to heart in his new focused biopic, Jackie….
