Back to Beale Street Blues 2014 championships

Beale Street in Memphis, Tenn. is rich with history. From the early 1900s through the '40s, it was swinging - every club and restaurant was filled with solemn saxophone, upbeat piano, gritty, soulful voices and even the occasional jug band. Jazz artists were fusing with blues legends like B.B. King, Muddy Waters and Louis Armstrong to help

Harlequin's secularized Jesus

I had every reason to believe I'd love director Linda Whitney's production of Jesus Christ Superstar. I admire her work, enjoy the play, and spend far more time thinking about Jesus than many hardcore Christians. I was so sure I'd love it that, with my wife at a Salt-N-Pepa show

Tuesday, July 2: The Raven and the Writing Desk

The Raven and the Writing Desk are about confounding expectations. A six-piece outfit from Denver, the Raven and the Writing Desk's music initially conjures up connections to bands like DeVotchKa (another literary allusion) and Beirut - these purveyors of gypsy-and-otherwise-worldly musical strains. It's notable that the heart of the Raven

An almost too obvious entry point for the kind of satirical Americana of Shotgun Kitchen would be their spiritual forefather, John Prine.
