Music to Your Ears

By Laura Marrich

Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes

What a world. I started interning at the Alibi six years ago as a culinary student and liberal arts college dropout. My entire work history before that consisted of catering and short-order cooking. The Alibi was my first desk job.

Punky Cinema

Film Guide special! Match the movies to the musicians that appeared in them

By Jessica Cassyle Carr

It's a known law of the universe that the actors-turned-rockers will nearly always be met with disrespect (Kevin Bacon, Keanu Reeves), whereas filmic forays made by musicians are generally accepted as interesting novelties (Iggy Pop, Tom Waits). Below lie 30 films that contain lead roles or small cameos by bands or musicians. Oi!

Music Interview

Holy Metal

Stryper’s still rockin’ the gospel

By Jessica Cassyle Carr

Since 1983, Stryper has shone the light of Jesus on a style of music typically associated with the dark, debauched side of life. The glam metal band relaxed its outrageous black-and-yellow striped look in the early ’90s, then disbanded in ’92 when the genre went the way of the flying dragon-beast-thing ridden by a big-breasted cartoon woman. The hair metal revival of the early part of this decade spurred the band to reunite in 2003, and Stryper’s been performing/preaching since. At times the band was accused of blasphemy and devil worshiping—not true, folks. Last week I spoke with lead guitarist Oz Fox, and, whoa, this band loves the Lord.

Matt Wilson Quartet That's Gonna Leave a Mark · Chris Potter Ultrahang

By Mel Minter

Matt Wilson is a beautifully melodic drummer, composer and, truth be told, vaudevillian and activist. With Andrew D’Angelo (alto sax, bass clarinet), Jeff Lederer (tenor and soprano sax, clarinet) and Chris Lightcap (bass), he presents a theatrically charming and challenging collection of nine originals and two covers. They’re all rooted in black American songbooks: spirituals to bebop to R&B to funk to hard bop. There’s free blowing on the title track, poignancy in “Getting Friendly” and funky uplift in War’s anthemic “Why Can’t We Be Friends?”. The beautifully recorded quartet just nails it all, as Wilson can be heard proclaiming at one point.

Show and Tell

Show & Tell • Preschool For Adults • variety

By August March
Ah, the safety of childhood. For at least some of us the early years were not as fraught and demanding as the adult world. There was plenty of time to pretend, explore and grow. Contrariwise there's hardly enough time after the age of majority occurs to keep track of the adventures, much less make sure that they are wholesome, fun and embrace the sense of safety and freedom that some kids grow up on. Well, the news is that on Tuesday, Jan. 30, you can have a little bit of that childhood innocence back (but not all of it; nobody knows any 10-year-olds with tattoos and a proclivity for horrorcore and Jaegermeister, after all) by participating in Show and Tell: Preschool for Adults. It's be happening Downtown at one of our city's most comfortable and convenient nightspots, so feel free to dress down in your jammies, just like you do when headed for Walmart. JK. This awesome night of childishly fun yet seriously adult indulgences is free and begins at 8pm, Moonlight Lounge.
