Don’t Be Bored: Short Garage-Rock Songs, Short Films

Let us take a moment to discuss a frequently maligned band. After their amelodic left turn of a sophomore album, Vivian Girls returned this year with Share the Joy, which is varied and energetic and most importantly full of earworms. It's also a pretty nice marriage of its member's side-projects, The Babies and La Series [...]

Fare Assessment: Anne Midgette Responds!

In the lobby, mostly middle-aged Baltimore Symphony Orchestra patrons milled about in tie-dye t-shirts, teashades, and sunflower dresses. At 7:14 p.m. I had detected my first [...]
