So, the Oscar nominations are out, and a lot of people are happy, a lot are angry, and a lot of people really can’t make themselves care. Personally, I had cognitively understood “they’re kind of silly and unnecessary and don’t mean anything,” but it took “Inside Llewyn Davis” getting almost entirely passed over this year for me to really feel it.

How’s a daughter supposed to react when her mom calls her up one afternoon and says she’s fallen in love?
Cass McCombs is a unique kind of artist. He doesn’t involve himself in the press nor does he particularly enjoy the music industry. What he does love, however, is music. This passion has been evident in all of his albums and it’s the outlet he uses to make himself shine in a trade where being subtle is not the name of the game.
The Daily Cardinal had a chance to speak with vocalist Mike Mattison of the Tedeschi Trucks Band before they embarked on a lengthy tour.
It’s time the legal drinking age should be changed. I mean, come on, weed is almost legal! Yet, we still have to be 21 years of age to purchase and consume alcohol? Being of the tender age of 19 and having a late spring birthday I have quite a bit of time to wait before I can legally purchase and consume alcohol. I will admit I had a fake but now that I recently have gotten it confiscated and do not want to go through the trouble of purchasing a new one, it’s time I write this article.
Bestselling graphic novelist and cartoonist Alison Bechdel will speak to University of Wisconsin-Madison students Wednesday as part of the Wisconsin Union Directorate’s Distinguished Lecture Series.
Like a terrible, blood drenched disco ball ascending from the stygian bowls of the earth, The Knife have finally returned to us.
Nicolas Cage. Yes, that Nicolas Cage. We all know him, or of him, though to some he’s more of a living meme than an actual person or actor.
In 2010, Local Natives released Gorilla Manor in the United States, their debut album that, despite its energy and ingenuity, slipped through the cracks of the rising indie/post-punk/psychedelic scene. Sandwiched in among new albums from Vampire Weekend to LCD Soundsystem and released only about eight months after The Temper Trap’s Conditions, Gorilla Manor unfortunately got lost in the mix.
So I was sitting at home over Thanksgiving break, and I gradually came to the realization that college students simply live on a different level of the space time continuum than the rest of the population. As a result, I found myself sitting up into the wee hours of the morning as the only conscious being in my house and did what any highly motivated student would do: spend time watching and rewatching old movies.
Construction on a new music performance center on the 700 block of University Avenue will begin in late 2014 or early 2015.
I have always viewed people’s music habits as a sort of indirect personal statement. It’s not necessarily based on the type of music they listen to (hey, I’m not here to judge), but rather how they consume it—how much of their overall life relates to music? Do they choose to spend their money and time at concerts? Do they only like to listen when they’re in the car? How many of their memories are linked to music? What does this say about them as an individual?
Anyone who has ever experienced an awkward family get-together knows how it feels—a lapse in conversation here or there, a wayward comment or those aggravating remarks from some pretentious cousin often permeate the day.
I’m beginning to think that I cannot attend a music festival unless it is blisteringly hot outside. After the infamous heat of Tennessee, Austin and California where other popular festivals are held, I was looking forward to the hip-hop festival in the cool, early-summer weather of my Minnesotan homeland. However, the scorching heat present at this years’ Soundset festival wasn’t enough to stop the Rhymesayers crew from continuing their tradition last Sunday, May 27 on the plains of Shakopee, MN, with the help of nearly 20,000 avid fans.
The end is nigh. In only two excruciatingly short weeks I’ll be graduating from the Badger state’s finest institution of higher learning, finally earning that elusive descriptor of “real adult”—or more likely just “that depressed guy who drinks at the Union all day and pretends he’s still a student here, drowning his delusions in pint after pint of Spotted Cow.”
Acclaimed orator and astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson will visit UW-Madison as keynote speaker for the university’s first Senior Day May 10.
Tuesday marked the first official day of the music portion of South by Southwest. The shows don’t start until the evening, but when they do get going, they don’t stop for quite some time. Before the music started, we had to pick up our wristbands in order to attend shows. While we were waiting, we ran into Cults, Yellow Ostrich and Brother Ali. We were starstruck, to say the least.
Long after the signs were removed, the Capitol lawn was reseeded, and the thousands of protestors departed, the ever-present partisan division and immense rise in lobbyist fundraising born during the spring protests continue to define Wisconsin politics today.
A UW-Madison student was attacked and robbed late Saturday night by three or four male individuals.
Wisconsin's Republican legislators were forced last June to exchange blood in a ritualistic pact of loyalty, a new report revealed Thursday.
