Diane, 11:30 a.m., May 21. In a few hours “Twin Peaks” will debut a third season after a 25-year absence, now as “Twin Peaks: The Return.” It would be an understatement to say that I am tense with anticipation.
Honestly, I should have known how much I would dislike “Table 19” just by looking at its film poster, which is designed to look like an Instagram post. And, like most people who are internally 80 years old and gigantic curmudgeons, I have never once in my life used Instagram, nor do I ever plan to. Simply stated, “Table 19” is made for a crowd of which I am not a member. While I will try to keep that in mind for this review, I’d also counterargue that art shouldn’t just resonate with a very limited intended audience.

For the past 40 years, Don Glasgo and Barbary Coast Jazz Ensemble have been practically synonymous. Glasgo has been the director of Barbary Coast since the mid-1970s; prior to his directorship, Barbary Coast was a small, student-run jazz ensemble. This Saturday’s concert, though, marks the end of an era, as it will be Glasgo’s final concert with the ensemble. In honor of Glasgo’s impending retirement, the second half of tomorrow night’s show will feature Barbary Coast alumni, including some ’78s and ’79s from Glasgo’s first years with the ensemble, sharing the stage with its current members.
Students worried that the weekend after Green Key is sure to be disappointing may want to consider traveling down to Harvard University to get another outdoor music fix. Starting this year, the music festival Boston Calling will take place at the Harvard Athletic Complex, a move that is the result of increasing interest in the festival. The new location, though, is not the only change in this year’s Boston Calling, which has also expanded to include comedy acts, a film component and a visual art component.

In 2011, shortly after the resignation of former Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak, Egyptian surgeon Bassem Youssef created a satirical web series in an attempt to heal his country through comedy. Shortly thereafter he transitioned to TV and hosted “Al-Bernameg,” a news satire show that was modeled after “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” and ran for three seasons. The Egyptian government, led by then-recently elected Mohamed Morsi, issued a warrant for Youssef’s arrest in 2013, accusing him of mocking Morsi and Islam.

“Lest the old traditions fail.” This is a catchphrase from the alma mater that Dartmouth students hear in several different contexts. In many ways, it exemplifies the nature of Ivy League prestige: when we speak fondly of tradition, it usually has to do with a harkening back to the “golden age” with a tinge of sentimentality.
