Marguerite Alberts, Staff Writer When looking at a picture of Scotty McCreery, one certainly does not expect such a deep southern voice to come out of his mouth.

Grease is a silly, stylish time

Robert Katz, Staff Writer On Friday night, March 30, the Performing Arts Department’s Grease opened with a bang, but not one that the gathered audience was hoping for. As the “Rydell Alma Mater” began in preppy confidence, all was in order. Yet, perhaps the rebellious spirit of the 1950’s-greaser Burger Palace Boys and Pink Ladies, […]

Reign of Terror

Robert Katz, Staff Writer Reign of Terror, noise-pop duo Sleigh Bells’ sophomore album, is the sort of record I love to see in these days of increasingly humble rock releases.

Griddle Café’s scrumptious dishes delight taste buds

Julia Waldow, Print Arts & Style Editor Hollywood’s Griddle Café is something like Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory — a magical land of “pure imagination” that “takes a sunrise, sprinkles it with dew, covers it in chocolate and a miracle or two.” It’s a world where pancakes bigger than customers’ heads sizzle in frying pans, where French toast […]

2012 upcoming music preview

Robert Katz, Staff Writer 2011 certainly offered more than its fair share of fantastic music, with the rise of many previously-obscure artists along with the returns of some of last decade’s most beloved bands. 2012, on the other hand, has yet to make its impression on the music world and now is the perfect time […]
