Though the UW System’s proposed autonomy measures would mean removing state mandates for minority scholarship funding, both university and UW System officials said those scholarships will be unaffected.
As the UW-Madison campus steps into March, another semester is well underway. This is especially true for the First Wave Hip Hop and Urban Arts Learning Community. The program of passionate artists has been in full swing with various performances and projects. A portion of the work includes the 8th Cohort’s recent performance for the 2015 Rotary Ethics Symposium, the strong participation in the recent Moonshine showcase and the Womyn's History Month Celebration/Showcase.
The Majestic Theatre will host Paper Diamond this Wednesday on his most exciting headline tour yet. The Rain Drops Tour, supporting an EP of the same name set to drop this week, promises a cohesive and thoughtful experience for all those in attendance. Alex Botwin, the talented artist behind Paper Diamond, has been working in the music industry and crafting visual art for over a decade, managing his various projects through his company Elm & Oak. Over the years, Botwin gravitated from visual art and management to his new role as an electronic musician and released the first Paper Diamond EP, Levitate, in 2011.
After three years of training and study, Universty of Wisconsin-Madison Master of Fine Arts student Riley Faison readies himself to perform “Mambo Mouth” by John Leguizamo as his MFA. thesis. Having already performed a rendition of the play at the Universidad de Puerto Rico-Cayey, the masters student is excited to remount his performance this weekend at Vilas Hall. Faison charges himself to share Leguizamo’s story of the “latino-lived experience in the United States of America,” in what he expects to be a spectacular one-man show, but for Faison, that means more than just being solo on the stage.
Award-winning dancer, choreographer, artistic director and writer Bill T. Jones is scheduled to speak at the first Distinguished Lecture Series of the semester Thursday at Memorial Union to discuss his creative process with students.
Best of Music
Juggling class, homework, a job and a social life can be difficult for most students, but for Jack Ringhand, the issue becomes more complex as he attempts to balance his studies with performing music.
Parquet Courts took the punk scene by storm last year with Light Up Gold, an album that nailed the fundamentals of garage-rock. What separated Parquet Courts from the myriad of other punk bands was the subtle whiff of avant-garde noise that wafted from their headbob-inducing riffs.
It probably makes sense to preface this by admitting my bias toward the Beatles, especially Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, which I think is their greatest accomplishment as a group, the best pop hybrid album of all time and one of the most important pieces of music ever created. But these statements, though facially grand and pretentious, are commonplace when referring to the Beatles because, well, they were just that important. As a hardcore Sgt. Pepper’s fan, I had high expectations for the Flaming Lips’ song-by-song, full-album collaboration almost-cleverly named With a Little Help from My Fwends.
The Wisconsin Book Festival brought a diverse array of discussions and events to Madison, taking place mainly from Oct. 16 through Oct. 19 with some further programming to take place in the weeks to come. I had the pleasure of attending two spoken word performances held by UW-Madison’s First Wave at the Overture Center for the Arts.
A war on the people who have the audacity to make budget-priced or free, independent games that represent characters other than grizzled white dudes has been ongoing since August. Their games push back against the idea that games must be power fantasies, whether the power in place is the ownership of a vehicle worth millions or being an individual assassin striking terror in the hearts of the orcs of Middle Earth. Most, if not all, of these games are pretty easy to acquire, run on your college laptop, and cost $20 or less.
The streets full of orange cones and cars blocking off entrances wasn’t for Madison’s never-ending construction this time, but instead to help set up for 10Fest, an event celebrating the Overture’s first ten years of existence. Typically overflowing in a sea of red towards Camp Randall, a large amount of Madison’s community was headed towards the Capitol this past Saturday. Downtown Madison was completely transformed, hosting a variety of events such as circus tents, aerial acrobatics, wagons, and many kid friendly activities.
Madison food trucks soon may be able to now legally set up shop even earlier before the Dane County Farmers’ Market, according to a proposal adopted by the Vending Oversight Committee at a Tuesday meeting.
The Ruth Davis Design Gallery at University of Wisconsin-Madison’s School of Human Ecology is pleased to present “Laura Anderson Barbata: Transcommunality,” from Sept. 19 to Nov. 21.
A seemingly modest proposal to make October 2015 hip-hop awareness month at Tuesday’s Madison Arts Commission meeting was universally applauded by members and community speakers alike.
Hundreds of shoes lined the state Capitol stairs representing Wisconsinites who have lost their lives due to gun violence. Legislators, law enforcement officials and advocates against gun violence met Monday to spread awareness on how to decrease gun fatalities around the state.
The 2014 QS World University Rankings survey named the University of Wisconsin-Madison first in the world for media and communications studies, according to a university release.
If you’re an avid fan of all classic horror films—even or especially the ridiculously cliched ones—your weekend probably included taking in "Evil Dead: The Musical" at the Overture Center. When my editor sent out the email for someone to cover the musical, let’s just say I have never pounced that fast on anything. So come Thursday night, my friend and I headed on over to the Overture, to take in our very first show there. Needless to say, we could not have possibly picked a better one.
Jordan Kelley was liberal with the good vibes and champagne throughout CHERUB’s two-night residency at the Majestic Theatre.
