Love and a Brazilian wax

You want to smell edible? This guy tells my sister she smells so good he could just take a bite out of her. She wears this perfume that’s just that amazing. I’m not a big perfume wearer as I have some kind of funky body chemistry that turns most synthetic perfumes to

Michelle Walters

The Dockyard Derby Dames roller derby league is high camp, and that’s where the real attraction lies for most players and fans. Bad-ass hot chicks in tight outfits and quad skates zoom around a track, hip-checking their opponents into the railing. Nice. Their fans, well, not so high camp. Every hoodie

Diwali Night 2007

OK, class, raise your hand if you’re down with the bhangra sound. Better yet, throw both your hands in the air and give ’em a slick flick at the wrist in your best approximation of the Punjabi party-down style. If you’re digging the North Indian dance floor thunder of bhangra

Thursday, July 11: Sam Vicari

The opening chords of "The Things I Say," by Sam Vicari, give me chills of recognition. With its gently chugging guitars and sugary sweet vocals, it is instantly reminiscent of decades of power pop, its melody even stretching back to the two-minute guitar heaven of early Beatles. Vicari is clearly

Thursday, July 11: Muscle and Marrow

Hailing from Portland, Muscle and Marrow is the project of singer and guitarist Kira Clark. I want to emphasize those words: singer and guitarist. Muscle and Marrow is entirely concerned with the dance and interplay between Clark's tremulous voice and the fuzzy tones emitted from her guitar. The gauzy guitar

A night with Vagabond Opera is a plunge down the rabbit hole into dirty European Gypsy immigrant love. Only in this rabbit hole, instead of Alice’s encounter with a phobic albino bunny and a feline with daily tooth whitening appointments, this trip includes a flame-masticating dancer with a hula hoop
