Local Singer, Anya Kvitka, Signs To Plug Research

Getting Up: Anya Kvitka plays The Ritz this Friday with her band, the Get Down.

Anya Kvitka has been quiet for a while. Professionally that is. In person, she doesn’t stay quiet long. She’s got a lot to say—about the arts in San Jose, about ABBA and about her recent decision to sign with the tastemaking independent label that dug Flying Lotus out of obscurity. “I’ve purposely… » Read More

King Diamond Sharing Stage With Slayer

Holding Court: With a piercing falsetto and penchant for brooding theatrics, King Diamond has lorded over metal fans for decades  performs at The Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival this weekend.

For nearly 35 years, Danish heavy metal icon King Diamond has been slaying audiences around the world with punishing riffs, face-melting solos, his trademark banshee wail and brilliant, brooding, bloody theatrics. The legendary singer, whose work with Mercyful Fate and his own eponymous band has influenced several generations of musicians, hits Shoreline Amphitheatre… » Read More

After Long Hiatus, Citabria Return To The Ritz With Silky Smooth New Album, ‘Exit Reality’

After splitting up, reuniting, and spending two years in mixing purgatory Citabria are back.

“For some reason things are always hard for us,” says Keviano Azevedo, drummer for the San Jose-based progressive alternative quartet, Citabria. He’s got a point. Considering the band’s fraught seven-year history, it is a wonder they’ve made it as far as they have. After their initial formation as a trio in 2008, the… » Read More

Movies

Review: 'Infinitely Polar Bear'

Three different styles of acting bash it out in the hard-to-believe Infinitely Polar Bear—and if you think the title sounds like the most labored Sundance fair, you're not wrong. Mark Ruffalo chews into the role of Cameron Stuart, a manic-depressive from a conceited Boston Brahmin family (his grandfather sat for a portrait by John Singer Sargent). He's idling his way through the late 1970s as Mr. Mom. » Read More

Review: 'Terminator Genisys'

Disgruntled fans of the franchise are already calling Terminator Genisys the worst, but it is loaded with Schwarzenegger, unlike the awful 2009 Terminator Salvation. (Someday, some blogger will rewrite the career of Salvation director, Joseph McGinty "McG" Nichol, as "an oeuvre that takes Tashlin-esque delight in destruction...essential to understanding the pleasures and perils of America in the Bush age... " etc., etc.) » Read More

Pear Avenue Theatre is Relocating

The company will be changing its name to Pear Theatre, in homage to its Pear Avenue origins. » Read More

Features & Columns

Rudy Rucker: The Journals

One of the more interesting and least probable characters around Silicon Valley is Rudy Rucker. Mild mannered and grandfatherly, the retired San Jose State professor and prolific author lives simply in a Los Gatos home with his wife of almost 50 years. That's pretty much where the normalcy stops. He listens to the Ramones and the Replacements and paints colorful folk art-like canvases of the afterlife featuring spaceships, human head farms and characters who look like they were borrowed from a Russ Meyers movie set. » Read More
