In a nutshell, the Dixie Chicks are back and better than ever. Earlier this March, the American country (some might even say a touch folk-y, or country-pop) band released their first song in 14 years. And it did not disappoint.
In the first scene of FX on Hulu’s new comedy series “Dave,” you get the whole picture on the biggest insecurity faced by protagonist Dave Burd, otherwise known as internet rapper Lil Dicky. Terrified to reveal the physical situation happening “below the belt” for his unassuming doctor, Burd gets way too far into the smaller details, pulls his pants down and lets the laughs ensue.
As The Weeknd (Abel Tesfaye) has clearly proven his relevance throughout the decade, the stakes are increasingly high when he drops projects. How does he work to release award-winning hits, please fans who each favor certain chapters of his musical career, and most importantly, stay true to himself?
The Netflix adaptation of "All the Bright Places," a wonderfully bittersweet novel written by Jennifer Niven, follows two young adults in their journey of loss and love in the 21st century. The film highlights the unlikely relationship between misfit Theodore Finch (Justice Smith) and sociable-turned-quiet Violet Markey (Elle Fanning), after the passing of her sister in a traumatic car accident. Finch and Markey find themselves on a journey exploring the ins-and-outs of the seemingly mundane state of Indiana for a school project, but along the way learn to discover the beauty in the small and unexpected things in life.
For a band that openly rejects genre labels, Railroad Earth brought just the type of musical versatility they advertise during their show at The Sylvee on March 5. Performing styles ranging from jam band rock to pure bluegrass, Railroad Earth’s range of music melded together to create an upbeat and energetic atmosphere that readily engaged their devoted fanbase.
For as long as I was able to stay up past my bedtime, I’ve watched Saturday Night Live. When I was younger, Bill Hader, Kristen Wiig and Andy Samberg were my comedic idols. My parents would show me old SNL skits from the heyday of Steve Martin, Gilda Radner and Billy Crystal. Obviously a comedy sketch show that is over 40 years-old is going to go through its highs and lows but recently I came to the realization that SNL doesn’t seem to know what it is anymore.
Theo Katzman of funk group Vulfpeck came to Madison March 8 for the first time since 2013, playing a near-sold out show at Majestic Theatre in support of his recently-released album “Modern Johnny Sings: Songs in the Age of Vibe.” Katzman and the show’s opener, Rett Madison, had incredibly dynamic performances that at one point or another made the audience think, laugh and cry. Katzman’s incredible stage presence kept the audience engaged and interested for his entire set.
When it comes down to it, creating music should really be about having fun while doing it, and producing something you are passionate about — not just something you need to write to fill a quota. The Revivalists manage to follow that passion and create music they love — and share for audiences to love as well.
Theo Katzman, singing drummer/guitarist in Vulfpeck, is set to play Majestic Theatre this Sunday, March 8, in support of his recent album release “Modern Johnny Sings: Songs in the Age of Vibe.” Tickets are $20 in advance, $25 on the day of the show and less than 50 remain, with doors opening at 7:30 and Rett Madison opening at 8:30.
You — the five people who read our introduction article — asked for it, you got it.
After a 4-year hiatus, “Star Wars: The Clone Wars” returns for its final season with as much action and excitement as fans have come to expect, establishing the series as a flagship program on Disney’s streaming service.
Attending (and enjoying) the Fitz and the Tantrums concert this past Friday was a bit of a fluke — a friend of mine was a fan, yet I ended up going alone among the masses of indie pop fans cramming into The Sylvee. With a few special songs I was particularly looking forward to, I entered the venue with limited expectations and a somewhat open mind.
“Sonic the Hedgehog” is lighthearted and pleasant.
After waiting five years, we finally can listen to a Tame Impala album other than “Currents”or “Lonerism” on repeat. Kevin Parker, the creative mind behind Tame Impala, kept us all in suspense for way too long for this album release, so I would have been incredibly disappointed if it was lackluster.
The day before Valentine’s Day is the perfect time for a cheesy romantic Netflix original. Peter Kavinsky (Noah Centineo) and Lara Jean Covey’s (Lana Condor) love story continues in the movie “To All The Boys: P.S. I Still Love You.”
On a cold Wisconsin Valentine’s Day, Pip the Pansy’s bright, upbeat and powerful performance offered a pleasant escape from the weather outside. On a stage dressed with flowers, her dark, heavy synth contrasted with light, punchy melodies and mystic flute solos to give her a strong electro-pop sound. Her music was at the same time both uplifting and easy listening, as well as personal, emotional and impactful.
The spaces for music media are small. Too often I struggle to find where to turn online if I want to read an honest opinion of something, with all bias and editorial standards left at the door.
This is not a drill.
What do you get when you mix together a moody, confused and narcissistic record store owner, a Brooklyn-based backdrop that comes straight down from the romantic comedy heavens and enough musical and pop-cultural references to make your head spin in circles?
