It made sense that when we first went Uptown two weeks ago after arriving in Oxford early for band camp, my friends’ faces fell after spotting the new marquee at Brick. It listed a somewhat-familiar, somewhat-new lineup: Karaoke Night on Mondays, Country Night on Wednesdays … and, instead of the beloved ’90s Night, “TikTok Tuesdays.”
Watching David Lowery’s “The Green Knight,” it’s hard to believe it’s based on the 14th-century tale. While I don’t watch that many movies, it has to be one of the most unusually clever and artistically adventurous films I’ve seen in ages.
Never again do I want to watch someone’s head go through a meat grinder.

Almost 25 years since “F# A# Infinity,” post-rock drone collective Godspeed You! Black Emperor is a meditative experience – a mix of noise, guitar, and vocals twists around, formulating a deceptively precise and metered adaptation of rock's inconsistent sounds.
At 75 years old, Parton’s already accomplished more than most people hope to in their lifetime - but she isn’t done yet. Here are a few other things that Parton’s accomplished that are not only impressive, but have shown her love for making the world a better place:
As a self-proclaimed “Hamilfan,” or fan of the smash-hit musical “Hamilton,” it would be an understatement to say I was excited for Lin-Manuel Miranda’s newest movie musical adaptation, “In the Heights” (ITH).

Though my music taste truly spans all eras and genres, I listen to classic rock more than anything else. My friends affectionately call it “boomer music.”
I’ve been listening to Taylor Swift for about three-fourths of my short life. There was a period of time when I stopped because I discovered music I thought was “cooler,” but that’s another story.

Denzel Curry has been one of my favorite artists for the past three years. The dude is brilliant, funny and always on the cutting edge. He hasn’t released a single bad album, in my opinion — that’s hard to do these days.
