Tonight at Spaulding Auditorium there will be zany sketch comedy, celebrity guest hosts and great music, all in front of a live audience. Is "Saturday Night Live" coming to the Hop? Lorne Michaels can only dream that his show is this entertaining. No, I'm writing about the annual Winter Whingding a cappella concert. This year's show promises to be a classic as some of Dartmouth's best and brightest entertainers will be taking the stage.
If you open up this week's Billboard and look at the Top Internet Sales chart, you won't find a whole lot of surprises. Norah Jones holds the top spot, as she does on general Top 200 album chart. You'll also find such commercial mainstays as The Dixie Chicks, Avril Lavigne, Coldplay and The Rolling Stones in the top ten.
Stand-up comedian Lewis Black tops the bill of the acts the Programming Board was able to book for the 2003 winter season. The comic will bring his angry brand of humor to Spaulding Auditorium on March 6.
Saturday night, Britain's world-renowned Arditti String Quartet graced the stage of Spaulding Auditorium, their first visit to Dartmouth in their 24-year history. Since the ensemble was founded in 1974 by violinist Irvine Arditti, it has earned a reputation as the world's most respected performers of 20th-century compositions, flawlessly playing some of the most difficult pieces ever composed for a string quartet.
"I must do something!"
After taking a three-year hiatus from being America's biggest jam band, Phish have returned with their latest studio effort, "Round Room." After the time off, they seem to have mellowed out somewhat in comparison to earlier albums -- to both positive and negative effect.
Pop is not a dirty word.
For her latest project, one of Ireland's most internationally recognizable musicians decided to go back to her roots and record an album consisting largely of traditional Irish songs -- some generations old, some more recent, but all with a rich historical background. Sinead O'Connor had heard many of the songs for the first time in her childhood, from her father and in school.
With Nirvana's lost single "You Know You're Right" getting massive airplay and Soundgarden's Chris Cornell collaborating with the former members of Rage Against The Machine in Audioslave, rock listeners seem nostalgic for the early '90s and the Seattle grunge scene. What better time for Pearl Jam, the only major band still intact from the days of flannel, to release their new album?
Director Peter Kominsky's sophomore effort in film, "White Oleander," seems to have suffered a fate that is all too common in Hollywood -- its marketing campaign doesn't match the movie itself. While being sold as a standard Lifetime Channel Movie of the Week, this is a film with a compelling story and effective performances, and it is accessible to both men and women.
Jazz legend Chick Corea and his Elektric Band rocked Spaulding Auditorium Thursday night with a loud combination of jazz, rock, blues and Latin music that added up to an amalgam that was distinctly their own.
The criticism of Ben Folds has always been that he's too clever for his own good; critics have picked away at his penchant for sly humor. While he has written such cuttingly witty songs as "One Angry Dwarf and 200 Solemn Faces" and "Army" (both of which make an appearance on this album), he can also paint poignant portraits of desperate characters, and even bare his own soul and write in a deeply personal style.
Shekhar Kapur's new film, "The Four Feathers," has the fatal flaw that so many big screen productions have suffered under for the last 10 years. It seems that somewhere in the back rooms of Hollywood, someone forgot that no matter how you dress up a bad movie, it is still just as bad (consider George Lucas).
Wynton Marsalis is without a doubt the world's ambassador of jazz. After seeing last night's show with the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra, I believe jazz could have no better spokesperson. Marsalis' mastery of the trumpet was clear from the opening number, his composition "Back to Basics" from his Pulitzer Prize winning work, "Blood on the Fields."
Combined, they have well over a century of experience playing jazz. Its members have collaborated with artists as diverse as Matchbox Twenty, Rosemary Clooney and A Tribe Called Quest. They have traveled all over the world, playing a distinctly American style of music to audiences on faraway continents.
