Coming soon to campus: Drugdealer and Sammy Rash

Wisconsin Union Directorate (WUD) Music is offering a variety of exciting concerts at the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s Union South this month. In the past, artists featured in this concert series included 100 Gecs and Fun. This is a great opportunity to find an artist to brag about seeing live “before they were big.” The shows are available for free to all Badgers hanging out at Union South on Nov. 11 and 18.

Soccer Mommy

Soccer Mommy picks up the Majestic, drives it home

On a weekend with no shortage of things to do in Madison, the scene outside the Majestic on Saturday was still bustling. Fans, a mixture of college-aged kids and adults, some clad in costume, some not, lined up outside the theater to see Soccer Mommy perform. 


‘Bodies Bodies Bodies’ is smart, entertaining satire for the digital age

 The premise of “Bodies Bodies Bodies” is simple enough: A group of 20-somethings gather at a mansion for a “hurricane party” in which a natural weather phenomenon is sufficient excuse to consume copious amounts of alcohol and other drugs. The group soon decides to play the film’s titular game, a cross between Mafia and hide-and-seek, in which a “killer” picks people off in the dark. When one of the players is found with their throat slashed, however, the partygoers realize a real-life murderer is among them.

Taking sanctuary in a modest Asian art gallery

There’s this quiet and modest exhibition on the Chazen Museum’s second floor which I’ve been visiting occasionally when I’m feeling restless and missing home. During my time in Madison, I’ve developed a habit of roaming around everywhere vacantly, as if in fielding the long distances I’m somehow collapsing the empty space between San Francisco and myself. 


Hilldale AMC to close, other options for UW students

For the past 15 years, the Madison community has relied on the AMC movie theater nearby in the Hilldale Shopping Center as a source for entertainment. Sadly, the AMC Madison 6 theater will be closing its doors at the end of this year, making room for a future development.


Bent: presenting queer life in Nazi Germany

From Oct. 19 to 29, Bartell Theater is showing the production “Bent.” The play, written by Martin Sherman in 1979, tells a story about the persecution of gay individuals in Nazi Germany. Following the life of Max, a gay man estranged from his wealthy family living in 1930s Berlin, the audience is immersed in the heart-wrenching representation of what life was like living as a queer person under Hitler’s rule.


The rise of the Mad Patcher: An interview with Baxter Salzwedel

Sustainable sourcing, vibrant patterns and donations to charity – it sounds impossible. But one man, Baxter Salzwedel, is offering it all. Creating one of a kind garments with a passion is quite literally his name – the “madpatcher” turned his sewing hobby into a full-fledged, flourishing business. I interviewed the 18-year-old to find out more about his beautiful garments and figure out how the high school graduate built his business from the ground up.

King Princess ‘f—ing loves Madison’

Madison’s queer community doesn’t often get a chance to convene, and LGBTQ+ individuals remain far outnumbered even in Wisconsin’s most progressive city. Thus, when genderqueer King Princess stopped at the Sylvee on their “Hold on Baby” Tour, queer individuals were offered a unique opportunity to celebrate the rock icon and their community all night long.  


'I fucked Bucky’: Hannah Berner returns to Madison

We’ve all spent long nights thinking about sleeping with Bucky the Badger — or is it just Hannah Berner? The female comedian began her show laughing about one of her many claims to fame — actually sleeping with the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s very own Bucky. 


Joel Ross brings his good vibes to Memorial Union

Presented by the Wisconsin Union Directorate, Chicago-born vibraphonist Joel Ross and his quintet Good Vibes performed on Oct. 16 in Memorial Union's intimate Play Circle. The ensemble features tenor saxophonist Sergio Tabanico, bassist Kanoa Mendenhall, pianist Jeremy Corren, drummer Jeremy Dutton and, of course, vibraphonist Joel Ross himself.


Alvvays and Slow Pulp grace the stage at Memorial Union

The fact that Slow Pulp and Alvvays’ concert occurred as planned is remarkable, considering the bands faced an accident on the way to Madison and a last-minute venue change because of the weather. The show was planned to take place on the Terrace, but was moved indoors to Shannon Hall. Understandably, the performance started an hour late, yet the bands were still determined to deliver a top-notch performance despite the unfortunate circumstances around their first tour stop.
