Delta Spirit at The Satellite: A Full Review

Written by , Posted in General

DeltaSpiritIntoTheWideAlbumCover

 

With a devoted underground following and impressive mainstream success, Delta Spirit has become one of the most in-demand live shows to see. Originating from San Diego, the five-piece power group are promoting their fourth full-length Album, ‘Into the Wide,’ and their live performance at The Satellite beautifully balanced their well-known Americana elements with the modern rock transition of their most current material. Delta Spirit’s shift in sound is largely influenced by their move to Brooklyn, a transition that created just enough moody tension to incorporate city angst into their heavier record. Seeing Delta Spirit live at the Satellite confirmed their status as music’s must-see act, most notably the incredibly impressive drumming of Brandon Young, who captured my attention for most of the evening. Listen to ‘Live On’ below, and purchase their record on iTunes.

For the Record: BAZ: An Unforgettable Experience

Written by , Posted in General

Your live music experience gets re-imagined with an unforgettable performance of ‘For the Record: Baz,’ a 360 degree concert experience showcasing the songs from Baz Luhrmann’s Strictly Ballroom, Romeo + Juliet,Moulin Rouge and The Great Gatsby. The captivating cabaret series is brought to you by the same team from the acclaimed ‘For the Record: Tarantino (Shane Scheel, Christopher Lloyd Bratten and Anderson Davis),’ and the breathtaking extravaganza will entertain audiences at DBA Hollywood through November 23. The show is worth it for Joanna Jones alone, who elevated the entire ensemble during her chilling rendition of Florence + The Machine’s “Over the Love.” I’ve posted a video of her performance below, but it simply doesn’t do this stunning singer justice. She’s young and likely unaware of her future super stardom. Go see Baz. You won’t regret it.

Written by , Posted in General

Jim Carrey visited Howard Stern and amongst his many revelations was a little nugget of gold about his on-set tension with the notoriously bad-tempered Tommy Lee Jones. According to Carrey, Jones made it clear that he “Could not condone [Carrey’s] buffoonery.” Jones is a general go-to example of unruly celebrity behavior, and the video below with Billy Bush says it all. Enjoy both.

Birdman: A Full Review

Written by , Posted in General

BIRDMAN_MOVIEPOSTERWith a wink to his past and a subtle nod to his future, Michael Keaton captivates in his comeback performance as Birdman. The existential undertone of Keaton’s own career makes him perfect to play “Riggan Thompson,” a washed up actor who walked away from the third installment of his iconic superhero role. His hope to revitalize his career comes in the form of a Broadway play beside some major power players, including Ed Norton (Mike Shiner), Naomi Watts (Leslie), Emma Stone (Sam), and Zach Galifianakis (Brandon).

Director Alejandro González Iñárritu executed the daunting task of actually simulating a play, making the entire movie appear as if it’s shot in one continuous take, a magic trick much like Alfred Hitchcock’s ‘Rope.’The backstage drama boosts the film, with Thompson’s depression-driven turmoil beautifully juxtaposed against Shiner’s thespian antics, Sam’s rebellious rants, and Brandon’s failed attempts to temper the trouble. And for the folks who need a little extra entertainment inside this circus of delight, there’s some great shots of Norton in his underwear, who is near-naked for most of the film.

Each character is crafted with many layers, often wavering between confidence, depression, desperation, heroism, kindness, humor, and love. It’s clear that Keaton carries the film, and the actor takes no issue with the irony of his legendary Batman status. And though everyone is on the record as saying the film was not written with Keaton in mind, it’s a fitting mental conundrum, considering there’s a play inside a film that’s shot like a play that stars a guy who once played a bird on screen and in real life who is also launching a comeback on screen and in real life. GOT THAT?!!!

Watch the trailer below, and go see this film.

RATING: 5/5 DISHES

Michael Keaton Talks Birdman and Batman

Written by , Posted in General

While the interview below is an interesting look inside Michael Keaton’s comeback in ‘Birdman,’ it’s also one of the first on-the-record answers about why Keaton turned down the third installment of his most celebrated film. When asked why he rejected Batman 3, Keaton simply said, “It sucked.” There were rumors about Keaton’s stance on the stinky film, but no official confirmation. As for why it actually sucked, It likely had to do with the absence of Tim Burton, Keaton’s legendary teammate. Watch below.

Iggy Azalea Makes You “Beg For It” — LISTEN NOW

Written by , Posted in General

With a flash of the Notorious B.I.G.’s “Hyponotize” and a side of Danish singer-songwriter MØ, Iggy comes in strong with “Beg For It,” a track off her forthcoming album, ‘Reclassified, which she’ll release on November 24. The mid-tempo rap song is co-produced by The Arcade & The Invisible Men and co-written by Iggy and Charli XCX. My uneducated guess tells me Iggy played a small part in the writing process and received that credit as a courtesy, but who knows. Listen below and enjoy.
