If you’re in the know to any degree on the folk-punk-rock scene, last week’s performances at The Sett was the place to be. Beneath the umbrella of a painfully niche subgenre identity and amid the first round of anxiety-inducing midterms, students and Madisonians alike congregated around the crowd-control barriers — beers and cell phones in hand — to break out into song and dance with some of the biggest names in this snippet of the musical oeuvre.

In terms of classic video game platformers, Mega Man has always been the black sheep of the family. Actually, Sonic is the black sheep of the platformer family, but Mega Man is a close second.
K-pop group BTS set Chicago on fire earlier this month at the United Center with their “Love Yourself” tour. The world tour, named after their album trilogy (Love Yourself: Her, Tear and Answer), is a continuum of their message urging fans to love themselves.
With two acting Emmys under its belt and season two well under production, Bill Hader and Alec Berg’s “Barry” looks to be a promising addition to HBO’s ever-growing roster of quality television. Sitting down to view the show, it becomes easy to see why.
It’s getting to be that time of year. With the changing of the leaves and the ubiquitous presence of pumpkin-flavored drinks comes another important seasonal milestone: Halloween. If you want your reading list to reflect the supernatural vibes of the season, consider reading 2008’s “The Monsters of Templeton” by UW-Madison MFA alum Lauren Groff.
“Fresh Off the Boat” premiered its fifth season Oct. 5 on ABC, picking up right where the Huang family left off back in their mid-’90s Orlando, Florida suburb.
Imagine yourself in the early ‘90s. The World Wide Web is revolutionizing the way we communicate, the Cold War has finally ended and the Hubble Space Telescope has been cast off into space. Arcades are bustling as the popular social spot for teenagers and young adults, with a wide variety of different game cabinets for any type of player. However, one cabinet dominated every arcade with an unrelenting appeal: “Street Fighter II.” This single game propelled the stagnant fighting game genre it came from to new heights. The proof? Its $1.5 billion in revenue from home console sales alone upon release.
Twenty One Pilots have walked on a tightrope for many years: Their sound is distinct, with Tyler Joseph’s recognizable rap flow and singing voice fusing perfectly to Josh Dun’s kinetic percussion, yet they draw from so many influences that it is hard to peg them down to one genre.
There are very few things in life that never seem to get old — one of them is the cover band Rod Tuffcurls and The Bench Press. In the four times that I’ve seen them perform, their set list has rarely changed, yet they somehow manage to always surprise me.
With hundreds of people out of their seats and dancing Tuesday night, the Barrymore Theatre was uplifted and roaring with cheer as purple, red and blue lights outlined the stage. Andy Grammer was performing on his “The Good Parts Tour,” which is raising money for breast cancer awareness in honor of his mother who passed away 10 years ago.
The Broadway hit musical “Something Rotten!” stopped in Madison at part of the Overture Center’s Broadway at the Overture series. Set in 1595, the comedy tells the story of Nick and Nigel Bottom, two brothers looking to write a play bigger than that of their rival: William Shakespeare himself. When a local soothsayer predicts that the future of theater is singing, dancing and acting all at once, Nick and Nigel attempt to write the world’s very first musical. The Daily Cardinal sat down with Richard Spitaletta, the show’s Nigel Bottom, to hear about touring life, the casting process and his worst audition ever.
“Something Rotten!” stunned and delighted a packed crowd at the Overture Center on Oct. 9. The musical comedy kept audience members smiling by not taking itself too seriously. The one thing the show was lacking? Lead women.
EDM fans had a lot to be excited about last week, as Ethan “Whethan” Snoreck brought his “Life Of A Wallflower Tour” to the Sylvee. The Chicago-based music producer performed at the Majestic last year, making his return to Madison at a new, much larger venue all the more anticipated.
Cast members from the hit improv TV show “Whose Line is it Anyway” gave a performance that was much like a bowl of old soup this past Thursday in "Whose Live Anway" — lukewarm. On top of that, it was old, white and male.
If you had told me a few years ago that I would cry at a movie starring Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga, I would have laughed, but with “A Star Is Born,” the two A-listers have done something that’s nothing short of iconic in Cooper’s directorial debut.
If dancing truly is dangerous, then St. Lucia put a lot of people in danger on Thursday night at the Barrymore Theatre as they lifted the audience to their feet with their upbeat, slightly alternative music.
Ever since 2013’s “Tomb Raider” reboot, Lara Croft has been on a successful run. The iconic video game heroine was redesigned to be more grounded and relatable, a change further developed in the 2015 sequel, “Rise of the Tomb Raider.” Even the new “Tomb Raider” movie starring Alicia Vikander was decent — for a film based on a video game, being decent is no small feat.
The CW’s critically acclaimed show “The Flash” arrives next week with a season that promises new twists and surprises for the “Scarlet Speedster.”
Since the inception of online streaming platforms, television industries have been aggressively battling for our attention and money. While cable and broadcast television must adhere to the advertiser-friendly content that they know, companies like Netflix and Hulu are allowed more freedom. They are able to prioritize art, and focus on darker themes, which mainstream audiences don’t anticipate.
