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

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

Review: 'Me and Earl and the Dying Girl'

Something innocent and sweet survives in Me and Earl and the Dying Girl, to balance out a manipulative, conniving streak so effective that Fox Searchlight paid $12 million for the film at Sundance. » Read More

Santa Clara Players Have Fun with Tom Lehrer's Songs in 'Tomfoolery'

In fourth grade, my school's music class learned a song called "Pollution." A twist on the advice given to American travelers to not drink the water in foreign lands, it had a catchy melody, Latin rhythm and smart, biting lyrics with an environmental theme. It even had a local shout-out: "The breakfast garbage you throw in to the Bay, they drink at lunch in San Jose" (I grew up in the North Bay so this was especially funny). It was the most hilarious thing 8-year-old me had ever heard. » Read More

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
