Art in Style: GUCCI Brings Creativity to Songbyrd


The Georgetown University Collective of Creative Individuals (GUCCI) is the perfect embodiment of what happens when a group of motivated and artistic students are left to their own devices. GUCCI is the brainchild of Alexander Lubeck (MSB ‘17) and his friends. The founders decided to create a community committed to “a disparate artistic discipline, together…

Mask and Bauble’s Footloose is an Unpretentious Good Time


It’s pretty safe to say that there are few who are unfamiliar with the general storyline of Footloose. Whether it’s the original film with a young Kevin Bacon or the adapted musical, Footloose holds an iconic position in our collective memories of the ‘80s, right alongside brightly-colored scrunchies and rigid mom jeans. As Mask and…

Critical Voices: George Ezra, Staying at Tamara’s


It’s not widely remembered that George Ezra was 2014’s third best-selling artist, only behind Ed Sheeran and Sam Smith. At 19, he burst onto the scene with his hit release “Budapest” and his first album, Wanted on Voyage. It’s been more than three years since Ezra has graced the public with another album to showcase…

With finals fast approaching, there has been a noticeable dip in temperatures. The first snow of the season is scheduled to be on Friday, which may provide a much-needed source of scenic relief for those entrenched inside the Brutalist walls of Lau.

<i>Last Flag Flying:</i> A Study of Grief and Patriotism

Last Flag Flying: A Study of Grief and Patriotism


Fans of director Richard Linklater will no doubt find his latest project to be very satisfying — and very much in line with his previous work.

Concert Review: Bad Suns, Oct. 29, 9:30 Club


As Bad Suns took to the stage at the 9:30 Club on Oct. 29, lead vocalist Christo Bowman proclaimed his pride of finally headlining at the venue. The band has previously played at the venue five times, but they never “had our own show at the f***ing 9:30 Club!” Bowman’s excitement was infectious. With that…

<i>Suburbicon</i> is a Paradigm of Directorial Disaster

Suburbicon is a Paradigm of Directorial Disaster


When you cross a Coen Brother screenplay with a race-relations subplot set in the 1950s, things are bound to get a little interesting. However, in the case of Suburbicon, this intrigue is also accompanied by confusion and befuddlement. Director George Clooney fails to merge two majorly disparate plot-lines, and what ensues is a perplexing combination…

<i>Gifted</i>: A Disjointed and Emotional Journey

Gifted: A Disjointed and Emotional Journey


The opening shots of Gifted resemble a sunny home video documenting the first day of school. Seven-year-old Mary Adler (McKenna Grace) scowls over her breakfast at her bearded and rumpled uncle Frank (Chris Evans) as a one-eyed cat lounges nearby. The cinematography is light and airy, and the dynamic between Grace and Evans is undeniably…
