There are actually plenty of opportunities for artists working in other […]

Boruchow Dissect

Joe Boruchow, the quintessential Philadelphia street artist, has been quite busy lately. One merely needs to wander around the streets of Philly and encounter his black and white wheatpasted murals to know he’s practically everywhere.

Jöjjön to play this Friday at The CAID

Detroit // March 27, 2012

This past Sunday, I took in a performance by the Detroit-based band, Jöjjön (pronounced “yo-yon”), as part of the Sunday night acoustic series at PJ’s Lager House. Jöjjön is an unconventional group, to say the least, playing music I would describe as Hungarian-influenced folk-pop. Kinga Osz-Kemp, the group’s leader singer, manages to tap into her […]

“American Family” by Carlyle Brown premieres at Park Square Theatre

St. Paul, Theater // March 26, 2012

“American Family” is an ambitious play, a laudable and moving production, even if it’s not a particularly subtle one.
