Rock of Ages

Whoever thought that making a Broadway musical from the music of the big-haired metallic bands of the 1980s must have been having a flashback. But whoever it was, they were evidently on the right

Adjectives are plentiful when it comes to Australian band The Church, yet a tidy summation is elusive. Over the years, they've seemed a bit like sculptors shaping the evolving landscape of their sound. 'Neo-psychedelic'

Bettye LaVette sparkles at Jazz Alley
by Mercy Moosemuzzle - SGN Contributing Writer

Big Gig
Mercy and Cuteness enjoyed the sold-out Big Gig at the Triple Door on February 3. Michelle Searle's nice big voice did well with 'You and the Night and the Music.' Her duet with Josephine Howell on 'Respect Yourself' was a knockout.

Brazilian Dance: Grupo Corpo

Meany Hall


I've heard Grupo Corpo criticized as 'too much athleticism, not enough dance.' To be sure, this group is a far cry from classical ballet or even Balanchine-type modern dance, and it is incredibly athletic. (One
