Dwyane Wade just made a very powerful statement about what it’s like raising a gay child coming from his hyper-masculine background as a former NBA star. D Wade recently sat down with Matt Barnes and Stephen Jackson for an interview on their All The Smoke podcast, and opened up about the relationship he has with his 12-year-old son Zion—who now apparently uses “she” and “her” pronouns—and also the support he has for the LGBTQ community. “I had to look myself in the mirror when my son at the time...

YouTube’s most popular personalities and content creators are raking in major dough, regardless of age.

Los Lobos will play Christmas tunes off first-ever holiday album at 4 Southern California shows

For Los Lobos, the legendary band from East L.A., the road map to their first-ever holiday album “Llegó Navidad” started with a list of 150 or so Christmas songs from across the Latin music diaspora. “There were a couple of provisos,” says Steve Berlin, Los Lobos’ saxophonist and keyboard player. “One was something that we could pull off. A lot of the stuff, oddly enough, was pretty complex and had a lot of moving parts, and quite frankly we didn’t really have time for because we were touring pr...

How To Deal With Racist Operas? Show, Don’t Hide

“To survive, opera has to confront the depth of its racism and sexism point-blank, treating classic operas as historical artifacts instead of dynamic cultural productions. Opera directors should approach the production of these classics as museum curators and professors — educating audiences about historical context and making stereotypes visible.” – The New York Times

Ears Wide Open: Boy Willows

Boy Willows is the nom de tune of Landon Fleischman, a Maryland native and USC product whose left-field indie-folk-soul is the stuff of guitar scribbles, gently applied swathes of keys and the kind of peripatetic beats that inspire spasmodic dance moves like the ones in the video for his new single “Greyhound.” Since first gaining notice for his 2016 single “I’m Good,” Boy Willows has issued two EPs, 2018’s “Woods at Night” and this year’s “Oof,” self-produced releases that showcase his minimal ...

America’s First Racially Integrated All-Girl Swing Band

“The International Sweethearts broke attendance records at places such as Washington DC’s Howard Theatre, Harlem’s Apollo Theater, Cincinnati’s Cotton Club and the Riviera in St Louis. They played in the same venues as Count Basie and Dizzy Gillespie, were considered some of the most talented musicians of their day and toured France and Germany as a USO act in 1945. Unfortunately, racism and sexism largely swept them from the public record; they became footnotes in other people’s stories.” – Th...
