For his 10th studio album, Wu-Tang Clan affiliate Killah Priest went big. Really big. The Psychic World of Walter Reed, is a sprawling two-disc conceptual record that covers everything from rugged street-hardened tales of dope dealing and gun running, as well as cosmic journeys to the ends of the universe. The album… » Read More
DJ Snake, who along with Lil John, created one of the most unabashedly, antagonistic party anthems in recent memory, will be headlining the Beyond Wonderland electronic music festival this Saturday. That song, “Turn Down for What,” exhorts listeners to keep the volume pumped, both literally and figuratively—as “turned up,” or “turnt,” in… » Read More
If you’re the kind of person that scoffs at the notion of devoting an entire night of your life to celebrating something as arbitrary and contrived as beginning of a new year, then you might consider catching the Sacramento-based sultans of sarcasm, CAKE, as they ring in NYE 2015 at the City National Civic… » Read More
Essentially benign and yet one of the grossest movies ever made, David Wnendt's Wetlands adapts a scandalous (and apparently very episodic) German semi-autobiographical coming of age novel. YA lit means a whole different thing over there, God bless them. It's a series of daydreamy anecdotes in the life of Helen (Carla Juri). She's spending some down time in the hospital; prone to the piles already, Helen gave herself a rectal injury from shaving herself too fast. » Read More
Craig Johnson's pretty much perfect The Skeleton Twins is about the reunion of a brother and a sister: a pair of small town messes still trying to look suave under duress. When they were young, their father committed suicide. Shortly afterward, their mother (Joanna Gleason) fled the wreckage to become a New Age charlatan in Sedona, Arizona. » Read More
The "art" from which Art takes its name is less a painting than a blank canvas. And while the stark white work sits figuratively and literally at the center of Yasmina Reza’s 1994 play, the production isn’t really so much about the piece, as it is about the way three friends respond to it and to each other over the course of of the play. » Read More
With C2SV running all weekend and the return of the SoFA Street Fair this Sunday, many a San Jose party animal has likely asked himself: "How the hell am I going to take in all the festivities and show up to work on Monday feeling like a human?" Here at Metro we've certainly been debating the conundrum. Fortunately, even if you do get carried the way on the back of a Moscow Mule during Cafe Stritch's two local music showcases or put away one too many Hennchatas at Chacho's during Ruckatan's set, you'll be able to look people in the eye on Monday, confident in the knowledge that at least you understand the science behind all the preposterous and juvenile behavior you engaged in over the weekend. » Read More
Rich Pasco, dressed like a tourist in a white souvenir tee tucked into navy-blue shorts, cautiously descends a dusty path between two cliffs at Bonny Doon Beach. He arrives at his picnic spot breathless from hotfooting it across the sand, and, without pause, he begins to disrobe. Every Monday afternoon, Pasco, 63, joins his friend for a game of Scrabble in the raw at the secluded quarter-mile patch of sand and surf north of Santa Cruz. They met in 1978 at the clothing-optional north end of the beach, where the crescent shape of the cliffs buffers the wind. » Read More
Last year, Mother Nature exerted her forceful wrath upon the Luna Park Chalk Art Festival. The rain came down and washed the poor art away. Some artists got a chance to draw their work the day beforehand, while others began the morning of the festival, only to see their work wiped out by torrential downpour. This Saturday, Backesto Park once again hosts the Luna Park Chalk Art Festival, with dozens of artists and vendors taking over the park and hundreds of high school-aged volunteers getting in on the action. » Read More
