    Pond Rising

    One day about three years ago, in the slack mist of Portland, Oregon, I trudged down to the river to watch local bands play a festival called the Mayor's Ball (Portland at the time had a pretty cool mayor). One of the more memorable of several memora...

    Trancey Groove

    All the techno- and rave-heads in Houston who've been bitching about the paucity of good shows here, and all the kids who've been steaming up the all-ages dance clubs with their teenage frottage during "Closer," will want to queue up for the Lords of...

    Weimar Woman - Ute Lemper searches for truth in the cabaret songs of 1920s Germany

    If you've been keeping a finger on the cultural barometer lately, you may have noticed the continuing triumph of every sort of musical retro trend imaginable, and a few that are probably made up. The idea of the musical archeologists, or at least of ...

    Seaside Bliss - In Miami Rhapsody, just about everything goes right

    First-time feature filmmaker David Frankel's Miami Rhapsody is so fleet-footed, cheerful and entertaining that it's tempting to dismiss it as just another piece of popcorn entertainment. But there's clearly a certain craft -- even art -- to creating ...
