I spent my Thursday night at Stubb’s— one of the largest stages at SXSW. The first of five sets started off with Durand Jones & The Indications. The Indiana natives fuse funk and soul, heavily drawing on the 70s with complex vocal runs and horns. Jones’ main goal: get the crowd moving. Picking up and slowing down from smooth, longing tracks like “Is It Any Wonder?” to soulful “Long Way Home,” the setlist showed off the band’s range to a mostly unfamiliar crowd.

Proving that it is still a dominant force in the television landscape, Netflix continues a strong 2019 lineup with “The Umbrella Academy," a comic book-style show that is not your average adaptation.
Ricky Gervais is known for his unfiltered, politically incorrect style of comedy, both on stage as a stand-up comic and in his other media appearances. People either get offended by or fall in love with the British comedian. I’ve loved Gervais’ work — not just his brutally honest style, but also the stories he crafts that are a proper blend of humor and heart.
Since 2002’s Saturate was released, American rock radio has featured a constant presence that has produced solid hits time after time again. Breaking Benjamin has traversed an always-morphing musical landscape, survived several member changes and has simply gotten the better of time itself.
What’s in a band’s name?
Amber Tamblyn — actress, director and most recently author of “Era of Ignition” — spoke with editors of the Daily Cardinal about her experience in the film industry, developing the Time’s Up movement, and seeking allyship and inclusivity in mainstream feminism. She discusses the importance of coming to the table and having accountability in this ignited era. This is not a choice for women, but a means of survival.
To make a story compelling, there needs to be a protagonist the audience gravitates towards; someone who goes through a great struggle and changes due to their experiences. In what is commonly referred to as the hero’s journey, a protagonist often starts off in a bad position, one in which they feel trapped or isolated. Throughout the course of their journey, they learn lessons, face difficult situations and end up altered internally due to their treacherous growing process.
Rodgers and Hammerstein’s “The King and I” might take the cake when it comes to virtually fossilized, ethnocentric and downright offensive pieces of American theatre. Maybe its “white savior” narrative and hyperbolic representation of Thai culture were considered all fine and dandy when this show debuted in 1951. But in our wanting-to-be-woke society of today, there was no justifiable reason for this show’s revival tour and subsequent stent at the Overture Center from Feb. 26 to March 3.

Winning six Academy Awards and widely acclaimed as one of the greatest action movies, it’s time for us to get the sequel to Fury Road that we all deserve.
In 2016 Solange released A Seat At the Table, which became her most acclaimed and commercially successful album. It cemented Solange’s identity as one of the most innovate R&B artists. This Friday she released her fourth studio album When I Get Home which is accompanied by a visual: “When I Get Home” a Texas Film. This R&B pop-infused album explores themes of community, race and femininity in a fresh and palpable way.
Sometimes a TV series just doesn’t know when to end. The first season of HBO’s “True Detective” from 2014 starred Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson in spellbinding performances that redefined crime storytelling for the ages to come. It was dark, gritty and rooted in the questioning of the nature of humanity. Each episode was more gripping and intriguing than the next.
Well, I had a piece planned on “Rainbow Six: Siege” for this week — a little thinkpiece about the whole ‘games as a service’ trend and how “Siege” has managed to both stumble into that model and sidestep the worst parts of it. But after the Activision-Blizzard layoffs, it just feels disingenuous to talk about anything other than the weird, terrible ways this industry is run and the ways it could be better.
At the time of the Electric Lady Studios’ founding, it was the only artist-owned studio in existence, built by and for the one and only Jimi Hendrix. He only got to use the space for a few weeks before his untimely death. Decades later, the studio has seen some of music’s biggest names pass through, becoming a sight of legend and of great music: Arcade Fire, Lady Gaga and David Bowie, to name a few.
