East Coast Rap Duo Tanya Morgan Bringing Boom-Bap Beats To Back Bar Sofa

MC Donwill of hip-hop duo Tanya Morgan says he views his group and its fans as an ‘island of misfit toys.’

Back in 2003, when Cincinnati MC Donwill and Brooklyn MC/producer Von Pea settled on naming their duo Tanya Morgan, they intended it as a goof—an inside joke about a record store clerk attempting to trick customers into buying a hip-hop album disguised as a ’50s soul record. At the time, the pair… » Read More

Kirk Von Hammett’s Fear FestEvil Announces Addition Of Free Outdoor ‘Carnival Of Chaos’


Much like the proverbial movie monster that once again rises from the grave to wreak havoc across the countryside and feast on more hapless victims, “Kirk Von Hammett’s Fear FestEvil” is coming back for a well-deserved sequel.

'Broad City': Mad Women on the Loose in Alternatown

Whether you love it or are disgusted by it, Broad City (on Comedy Central and Hulu Plus) is delivering something that the movies aren't. Renewed for a third season in January, it walks tall on the low road. It's often grotty in a way that holds together a broad audience in a high/low humor fork. » Read More

Review: 'Salt of the Earth'

What's said about firemen could be said of the Brazilian Sebastiao Salgado, a bald, bushy-eyebrowed photojournalist: where most people run from a conflagration, he runs into it. Wim Wenders (Wings of Desire) and the photographer's son, Juliano, discuss Salgado's journey, as well as visit the land where this indefatigable traveler has finally come to rest. » Read More

Adam Hochschild Speaks at Stanford

One hundred years ago, a war of surpassing violence and cruelty ravaged the world. What Winston Churchill imagined as "a glorious delicious war" turned out to be something that beggared adjectives meant for sunsets or chocolates. » Read More

Art Imitates Life in City Lights Production of 'M. Butterfly'

In classic Chinese opera, female roles were traditionally played by men because, playwright David Henry Hwang's script sarcastically suggests, "only a man knows how a woman is supposed to act." Deeply rooted concepts of how men and women—as well as Easterners and Westerners—are supposed to act form the nucleus of Hwang's provocative gender-bending play, M. Butterfly, currently showing City Lights Theater. » Read More

Little Italy Creates a New Identity with Unveiling of Gateway Arch

Last week, San Jose's Little Italy project officially dedicated a monumental 31-foot gateway arch at the intersection of N. Almaden and Julian, right in front of Paesano Ristorante Italiano, at the other end of the block from Henry's Hi-Life. Constructed of marble, steel and other elements, the arch took years to complete. After arduous degrees of city meetings, permits and fundraising endeavors, the arch now signifies the entryway to Little Italy-at the moment, a small few blocks of stuff, but a place where ideas loom quite large. » Read More

Metro's Best of Silicon Valley 2015

It's time to admit that Silicon Valley is a bit of a freak. A paradoxical place where self-driving cars, drones and presidential visits are so common they barely merit a second thought. Yet we steal elections with licked stamps and feed ballots into counting machines by hand. From $100 million mansions to a now-disassembled plywood and canvas favela that was ready for its own Zip code, the valley incubates diversity and embraces unconventional thinking. Our normal is never the norm. » Read More
