Synth and Serenity: Sylvan Esso takes the Howard Theatre

Walking down U Street towards the Howard Theatre’s classic, regal exterior, I saw the awakening signs of the neighborhood’s dynamic nightlife. I arrived 30 minutes before doors opened, and a thirty-person line had already formed. Thanks to some very kind fellow Hoyas, I ended up third in line to walk in. Considering that the theater…

Who are the people that teach at Georgetown? How did they get to be where they are today: standing in a packed auditorium lecturing about realist theory or leading a vibrant discussion about poetry? As a student, I know why I go to class each day, but why do my professors get up to teach?…

If Adams Morgan–or “AdMo” like the cool kids (read: me) call it–was a member of the DC family, it would be that crazy, hipster cousin who listens to bands with names like “The Ambiguous Lampshades” and tells you about the coolest hole-in-the-wall restaurants where you can find some of the best Jamaican jerk chicken DC…

Dancing with yourself is a skill, one best mastered on a dark dance floor surrounded by people you don’t know. With rhythm seeping through your veins and just enough bravery to release those self-conscious inhibitions that keep you stationary, all you need is the right song to feel like you’re on top of the world….

Luca Cordero di Montezemolo, Ferrari icon and resident nut job, has stepped down from his position of chairman at Ferrari. He will be replaced by Sergio Marchionne. The FIAT-Chrysler alliance is now, in the words of the “Financial Post,” a “one man show.” It’s the end of an era. di Montezemolo’s importance to Ferrari feels…

By:

The Drop is an emotionally manipulative crime drama that forcibly links multiple, supposedly character-driven plot threads in order to build to one of the most laughably-executed twists in recent memory.  Tom Hardy stars as Bob, a bartender who has to deal with the fact that his bar, a “drop point” where the Chechen mob often…

If there’s one thing Whovians know about longtime Doctor Who showrunner Stephen Moffat, it’s that he loves a good, scary twist. It started early in his career, with villains like the famous “Weeping Angels” playing off the primal fears of the viewers. His other villains, like Series Four’s “Vashta Nerada” or Series Six’s “The Silence”…

Ryan Adams’ career has followed many musical twists and turns, perhaps best evidenced by the 13 albums and countless musical collaborations he has released since 2000. After a 3-year hiatus, Ryan Adams is back with his 14th, self-titled studio album– a melancholy, moody, and predictable roller coaster of rock and blues. It’s obvious that Adams…

By:

Ed Sheeran’s performance this past Saturday at the Merriweather Post Pavilion stop on his Multiply tour was, in a word, faultless. From the crowd-pleasing sing-alongs, to the talented freestyle, to the acoustic melodies performed in typical Sheeran-esque fashion—the one-man band managed so much versatility in one show that even the reluctant fathers resembled their fanatic,…
