Album Review: Weathered vibe runs through new Stones album
The Rolling Stones claim they made their new blues album in three days — which is remarkable since it sounds like they couldn’t have spent more than two. Easily their rawest recording in decades, “Blue & Lonesome” finds the Rock and Roll Hall of Famers happily reconnecting...

Album Review: Reissues make case for The Move being an unsung great
It’s not an easy task sometimes to scare up local releases to review for this here column. As vibrant as the region’s original-music scene is, there are times when the stream of albums runs a bit dry — after all, 52 records a year is a tall order for a few reasonably sized towns...

Theater review: ‘Joseph’ delivers promised bold new vision
This dream will do. As advertised, “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat,” directed and choreographed by Michael Matthew Ferrell, is far and away the most original vision of a musical to grace the Duluth Playhouse stage in the 10 years I have been paid to pontificate on...

Movie review: ‘Loving’ is heartwarming look at landmark struggle
Director/writer Jeff Nichols is back doing what he does best: telling personal stories about Southerners and Midwesterners that reverberate beyond their regional boundaries. He did it with “Shotgun Stories,” “Take Shelter” and “Mud” before taking a detour into Spielberg-influenced...

REVIEW: Despite the snow, Arrowhead Chorale celebrates autumn
Red and yellow leaves, chilly but gentle winds and a shimmering harvest moon would be the perfect conditions for a choral performance celebrating the autumn season in Minnesota. Not six inches of snow, freezing temperatures and icy sidewalks. Mother Nature may not have cooperated...

Theater review: There’s much to ‘Hyde’ at the Underground
In the tarot of horror literature laid out by Stephen King, “The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde” by Robert Louis Stevenson represents the hidden beast within, whose totemic form is the werewolf. But the intriguing drama directed by Jonathan Manchester that opened Thursday...

ALBUM REVIEW: Shock-rockers Ghost keep up the ghoulishly good work
Out of all the metal bands that have come out in the past decade or so, Ghost is simultaneously the most metal and the least metal. They're the most metal in presentation, in that they are led by an evil pope in skull face paint, while the rest of the band is comprised of "Nameless...
