Jay Gabler is your host this afternoon until 6:00 p.m. on our Local Current stream of Minnesota music. Listen in for for the song of the summer, the Replacements covering one a famous folkie, at least two different nicknames for Duluth, a song from one of the most interesting bands to come out of Minnesota in the 80s, a story about Jay’s conflicted relationship with vinyl records, and much, much more.

“Narcissus,” choreographed by Joanie Smith in collaboration with her company, is a meditation on the allure and, perhaps, futility of self-involvement, with dancers wrestling over a series of mirrors. A clever effect with Pearl Rea’s lighting buoys the piece at its conclusion, but to get there we have to watch company members clutching hand mirrors as they go from convulsions of laughter to sneers of revulsion. It’s just a whole lot of awkward.
Here’s my review of Shapiro & Smith’s current program at the Cowles Center.

Blue is the Warmest Color

As an early childhood education major, I appreciated seeing a movie that finally tells the truth about preschool teachers:

  • we’re all outrageously attractive,
  • we’re all awesome dancers, and
  • every night after the kids get picked up, we go out and party ‘til dawn.

"There’s still very much this stereotype that teenage girls are not serious consumers of music, even though they are the number one purchasers of music. Teenage girls are the number one consumers of music, they are the number one drivers of taste, and yet they are still not considered serious music fans."
