Excerpted from the novel by Michael Atchison
American Gothic was a subterranean shithole bar known for its existentially tortured clientele and extreme indifference to the minimum drinking age.

Charm City looks for inspiration

Where? La Prov and the Bucket. Plus, how to stay plugged in
This is not the only area in which Maryland and the Biggest Little are seeking synergy.

The new TV season

Power to the people; enviropalooza; on the money; farewell to Dickie
Gil Scott-Heron was wrong: The revolution(s) will be televised.

Born Ruffians | Say It

Warp (2010)
Over the past half of Warp’s robust 20-year run, the label’s enduring legacy as a vanguard force in electronic music has drifted as its tastes have gone positively eclectic. The mixed-media future folk of Bibio, the experimental soul of Jamie Lidell, the polished post-punk nuts of Maximo Park.

The Terror Pigeon Dance Revolt! | I Love You! I Love You!

I Love You! I Love You! I Love You And I’m In Love With You! Have An Awesome Day! Have The Best Day Of Your Life! on Luaka Bop (2010)
The Terror Pigeon Dance Revolt! are a dance/electronica collective known around the Manhattan/Brooklyn scene for their elaborate live performances, where members wear outrageous costumes made of stuffed animals and have on-stage pillow fights.

Providence Mayor David N. Cicilline's second annual Senator Claiborne Pell Lecture on Arts and Humanities wasn't really about the arts. Or the humanities.

Review: El Perro Del Mar at the Brattle

El Perro Del Mar and Taken by Trees, live at the Brattle Theatre, February 19, 2010
Sharing a bill, a backing band, and the cramped stage of the Brattle Theatre last Friday, two Swedish singer-songwriters turned it up to the world-music equivalent of 11 for an audience that, for the most part, refused to dance.

2009: The top 10 in pop music

Music you need to own
Hmm, lots of women, a few old dudes, and some African banjo (not to be confused with Steve Martin's Hollywood banjo).

Tropicália storm

The long awaited return of Os Mutantes
When Sérgio Dias takes to the Somerville Theatre stage this Sunday with the current incarnation of Os Mutantes, it's a safe bet he'll be beaming with gratitude. "I'm riding the same wave," he says of his band's legendary Brazilian albums, "but this time I have my eyes open."

Time to Dance? Dance. Dance!

Island Moving Co. Takes It Inside
Although Island Moving Co. has moved their summer dance concerts inside, after 20 years of battling the elements at outdoor venues around Newport, they have chosen an unusual and historic site — the 1699 Great Friends Meeting House, the oldest surviving house of worship (Quaker) in the city — for Dance? Dance. Dance! (through July 26).

Sunset Rubdown | Dragonslayer

Jagjaguwar (2009)
Sunset Rubdown's 2007 release, Random Spirit Lover , is an underappreciated tour de force , a sprawling indie-rock epic imbued with a spirit of anarchic glee. Their third album is as ambitious as its predecessors but mutes the joy in favor of a more serious tone and tighter focus.

Hot summer nights

Before the solstice hits, four albums drop
If the coming week is indicative of anything, it's that this is going to be one busy summer. Discs have been flooding into the office and there's no end in sight. In an effort to keep up, here's a collection of four reviews for albums being released before summer even officially starts.

Brave new RISD

After a year at the helm, president John Maeda is balancing broad shifts in the worlds of art, design, and business
The Rhode Island School of Design, for all its artful ambition, is a conservative place. Students draw. They mold clay. They are awash in taxidermy. So there was more than a little anxiety when John Maeda — sneaker designer, MIT professor, digital media rock star — took over as RISD president last summer.

Dancing with himself

Arthur Russell's posthumous renaissance
Arthur Russell's music does little to illuminate the mysteries and vagaries of his life. It simply tosses them aside, in pursuit of moods and rhythms few have successfully replicated, two decades later.

All at once

N.A.S.A.’s gang bangers might be a little much
If nothing else, the release of The Spirit of Apollo (Anti-) a few weeks ago by the intercontinental hip-hop/baile/other duo of N.A.S.A. (that’s North America/South America) makes an encouraging, if not actually uttered, statement.

N.A.S.A. | The Spirit of Apollo

Anti- (2009)
I could fill up my allotted space by simply listing the plethora of cameos, not to mention incongruous match-ups, stuffed within this Benetton ad of a debut by Squeak E. Clean and DJ Zegan, a/k/a N.A.S.A.

An absolute glut of cruelly reductive Top 10 lists from our dedicated staff of tirelessly enthusiastic writers

Dirge overkill

The sad songs of Winterpills
Against the grainy mix of plucky guitars and water-drop bells in "Burning Hearts," Flora Reed recalls a long-ago tryst that she traces from Paris cafûs across tarmacs and ancient ruins.

Kid Sister | Dream Date

Downtown (2008)
It's lame to critique other critiques, but it was a bit much for Spin to bless Kid Sister's debut with four out of five stars.

Severed Heads

David Byrne at the Wang Theatre, October 31, 2008
“This ain’t no CBGB,” David Byrne sang during his late-set dive bomb into “Life During Wartime,” and a glance around the immensely classy premises of the Wang Theatre verified it.
