Alpa Shah: Nightmarch If you haven't been following the news in India for the last decade or so, you might not know that the government has been at war with a Maoist insurgency called the Naxalites, who live and operate among the Adivasi in the mid-eastern area of the country.
The government considers the Naxalites terrorists, while the Naxalites consider the extremely right-wing government an oppressive regime. The government is also thirsty for coal and other natural resources sitting just below the land of the Adivasi, India's indigenous people, who are caught in the middle of this whole thing.
In Nightmarch , renowned anthropologist and author Alpa Shah writes about the "hopes, aspirations, and contradictions" of the Naxalites after spending nearly two years embedded with the platoon of the Indian Maoists, tracking the motivations behind the government's increasingly aggressive approach to the situation.

I am happy to report that Ruefle continues to be obsessed with using her signature conversational style to write abstract-associative poetry about death, loneliness, and poetry itself.
Though I'm not as in love with Dunce as I was with My Private Property , it is still early on in my relationship with the book.

That being said, if I'm going to be afflicted with pinch-harmonic-inflected cheer, then I'm at least going to focus on the upside. Which is, TSO formed from the remains of the excellent and under-appreciated power-metal outfit Savatage, whose interpretation of Edvard Grieg's "In the Hall of the Mountain King" probably sparked the whole classical-music-meets-metal fad. Now if only they still had Alex Skolnick from Testament in the band. And so, obviously, the MeToo movement has not gone "too far," you fucking morons—and, yes, she's looking at you, Woody Allen.
But, because she's Lindy West, she said all of that with enough clarity, force, and humor to make even the most panicked of sex panicky cautioneers crack a smile. Her new book, The Witches Are Coming , uses that column as a launching pad to explore an issue that could use a little more light.
Doubtfire November 26 is the world premiere of Mrs. Doubtfire, an adaptation of the Robin Williams film personal note: my parents divorced in , and my brothers and I have seen that film one billion times. Doubtfire will be directed by Jerry Zaks, a Broadway legend who won a Tony Award for directing the revival of Guys and Dolls in , and was nominated again for his revival of Hello, Dolly!
It's not a passive experience. They feel like they're part of it. I guess Josh Karpeh, aka Cautious Clay, from Brooklyn, belongs in that class, although his music feels so much more compelling. He draws on hiphop production qualities and experimentation, his sound hinting at elements of gospel, island, pop, and soul. He has a creamy caressing vocal timbre that can hit falsetto notes so I forgive his use of Auto-Tune , he mixes digital programming with organic instrumentation, and his sonic arsenal includes the sax and flute.
The motherfucking flute. Neither is overused in his music. The obvious highlight of his Blood Type EP is "Cold War," built on a low-end that pulses like a deeply beating heart, a stark rhythm of woodblock knocks, subtle synth embellishments, and light perc clatters as his vocals ascend elegantly over the top, referencing modern dating, apps, and Instagram habits without coming off like an annoying millennial.

Thievery Corporation Few of Thievery Corporation's s-era down-tempo electronic contemporaries have shown the durability of core members Rob Garza and Eric Hilton. What they do isn't innovative or revolutionary, but Thievery Corporation's clever amalgams of classy lounge music, buttery triphop, dub lite, boho hiphop, chill bossa nova, and other styles from the international sonic bazaar cohere into a good time soundtrack that makes you feel much more suave and affluent than you actually are.
And that's good enough to sell out the Showbox, even for two dates. Thievery Corporation will be supporting their typically eclectic and tasteful recent album, Treasures from the Temple.
