Arizona Repertory Theatre looks at the darkness inside with Anton Chekov's ╬The Three Sisters'

In our high-stimuli society, it seems we've come close to total abandonment of stories with depth, stories that force us to face the darkness inside we try so hard to avoid. Bless the theater for giving us, on stage, what we so desperately need to explore in our own lives. [Read article]

photo Q & A with Rasputina

With three cellos and more fuzz than the Melvins, Rasputina makes for an ensemble that is not only amazing, but an original idea that is rarely seen today. The "group" has been together for the past 11 years, with members coming and going in between. Rasputina fuses rock, classical, folk tales and humor to make a collage of melodies that gives birth to a unique brand of music. [Read article]

photo A Spoon full of happiness

In a better world, a picture of Spoon would be in every high-school girl's locker. They have everything a hormone-driven female wants in their favorite band: the boyishly attractive lead singer with a road-weary voice, the cover-your-notebook lyrics. (One example from "Me and the Bean": "I am your shadow in the dark / you are the blood inside my heart.") And the accessible pop hooks. [Read article]

photo Make your plans for the Dismemberment

Are you the kind of person that stands around and looks bored at concerts? Do you cross your arms, roll your eyes, and dismiss every song as being "OK, sort of" or "alright, I guess?" Then, my child, God has a Plan for you. [Read article]

Grade: F- & J
Betancourt: "Ghost Ship" might actually be the worst movie I've ever seen.
Utz: Yeah, let's talk about something else. [Read review]

photo CDReview: Dolomites
Medicine Show

Grade: B
What kind of sound does a band produce that utilizes bass, vocals, saxophones, clarinets, drums, guitars, a banjo, a trombone, an accordion and an organ? It sounds similar to the theme song of Comedy Central's "Insomniac," except without that annoying host. [Read review]

photo CDReview: Pinwheel
Trouble Doll

Grade: B
Sometimes you don't want to think too much about the music you are listening to. You just want to kick back and let the tunes roll over you.
One way to find ever-elusive music that will make you happy is to look at trends in the music business. The trends in most popular music today are short songs and the band claiming to have their roots firmly planted in punk. [Read review]

photo CDReview: Soviet
We are eyes, We are builders

Grade: C+
If your idea of good music is something that you can bang your head to until it bleeds, We are eyes, we are builders isn't the album for you.
But if your idea of good music involves listening to your old Tears for Fears and Flock of Seagulls tapes, rejoice. [Read review]

photo BookReview: ╬The Subject Steve' by Sam Lipsyte

Grade: C-
Reading this book is like being dropped off at your high-school graduation party after getting your wisdom teeth pulled. Too many people are talking to you at once and you have no idea what is going on.
Sam Lipsyte is the author of "The Subject Steve." The main character, Steve, is diagnosed with a terminal disease by a philosopher and a mechanic. Confusing? [Read review]
