Embattled By Anti-Semitism Claims, The Women’s March Forges On

The day after Donald J. Trump was inaugurated as the 45th president of the United States, Hadas Alterman found herself surrounded by nearly 60,000 people in downtown Oakland. The 29-year-old attorney from California has attended her fair share of civil rights demonstrations, but said that she had never experienced anything like the 2017 Women’s March.“It can be scary to protest in Oakland because often there’s a high, very aggressive police presence. But the atmosphere at the Women’s March in O...

Maggie Rogers Inspires Introspection On Debut Album

The world and Pharrell Williams met Maggie Rogers at the same time, effectively. Though she later said she had no idea he would be there, much less that the interaction would be filmed and put on the internet, Pharrell’s reaction to her song “Alaska” went viral; one of the giants of music production told this college student he had zero notes to better her track, “Alaska.” A music sensation was born as the clip made its way through Reddit onto music blogs and Rogers found herself booked to play...

Frankie Shaw Will Apologize For Some Things, But She's Not Sorry About SMILF

A show about single moms who are down on their luck and also horny is about as taboo as TV gets, but the Showtime series SMILF is the rare gem that manages to disrupt with unapologetic verve. Set in the Boston’s historically blue collar Southie neighborhood, the show centers on Bridgette Bird, a young, struggling mom of a toddler, who is totally lost, troubled by a traumatic past, but doing her best. In the iconic pilot episode, she’s seen at a bodega running into an old friend while buying coo...

Jenna Lotti ‘Nervous’

Boston native Jenna Lotti releases the mid-tempo electro track Nervous. As way to cope with anxiety, Jenna began writing songs. Like any aspiring artist, the LA based singer turned to open mics, picked up the guitar, and recorded YouTube videos in her bathroom.  Jenna’s mix of vulnerability and talent stands out from the crowded electronic arena. Jenna says, “It’s a song about the dark force of anxiety which has dominated my life since I was 10 years old. I’ve always used writing as an outlet b...

Movies You Won’t Believe Are Based On True Stories

At first glance, the script for War Dogs probably read like an outlandish action comedy.How could a couple of stoner dudes from Miami secure a $300 million contract to supply arms to the U.S. government? How could the Pentagon supply tens of millions of shoddy weapons to Afghani troops fighting Al Qaeda and the Taliban? How could the U.S. government be tricked into purchasing decomposing, 40-year-old munitions that were culled from a Communist surplus stockpile or manufactured cheaply in China ...

Kaz James Remixes Tall Heights' "The Deep End" (premiere)

None Boston based, electro-folk duo Tall Heights are releasing a series of remixes for their song "The Deep End". The track, taken from this year's Pretty Colours For Your Actions , already leaned more heavily towards an electronic, synthpop sound rather than folk and, as such, is perfectly primed for a smooth house makeover from Australian producer Kaz James. On his remix, James chooses to overhaul the backbone of the track completely by removing the drums and bracing the track with a sturd...
