Phreq: How much would you pay for a blank CD-R?

Another blog post I wrote for Phrequency, this time about Dark Night of the Soul, a Danger Mouse and Sparklehorse collaboration. Their record label, EMI, won’t release it, so they’re urging fans to download it illegally and buy a blank CD-R and David Lynch art book to compensate the artists. Here’s the post.

I’ve started writing more “newsy” blog posts for Phrequency. Here’s one.

Uwish: Rent preview and review


The touring production of RENT came through Philadelphia a while back. I wrote a preview and review for Uwishunu. It was the largest big-budget production I’ve seen in a long time. I’m not used to huge stages, mic’d actors and the consistency that comes from years of touring. But, it was a good show and I always love the Academy of Music. Check out the preview below, review after the jump.

Uwish: Lantern’s Stealing Shakespeare


And now for an Uwishunu preview post that didn’t already take place. Lantern Theater Co. is running a production of Hamlet that opens tonight. It’s also hosting an event on Monday called Stealing Shakespeare. It’s a lecture type deal with two theater professors discussing a whole bunch of art that’s borrowed from Hamlet’s themes.
