Music: Lovelytheband gives Boston crowd much to... "I wrote this song at my lowest point..and I've had mental health issues throughout my life," said singer Mitchy Collins of Lovelytheband, in surely one of the most unforgettable song introductions, before a sold out crowd of 525 fans at The Sinclair in Cambridge, Saturday night. "We have an epidemic of this stuff; depression, anxiety, addiction," he continued.

GET REEL: Golden anniversary for 'Romeo and... Fifty years ago on Oct. 8, Franco Zeffirelli’s rendition of “Romeo and Juliet” opened in U.S. theaters and has since gone on to be considered one of, if not the best cinematic versions of a William Shakespeare play.I happen to be a member of the “best” club, though I have a soft spot in my light heart for Roman Polanski’s “Macbeth” (1971). On TV, the 1974 Great Performances presentation of “King Lear” starring James [...]

Music: Austin's Black Joe Lewis and Honeybears... Black Joe Lewis brings a primal power to his rock and blues that is exceedingly rare these days. While he's cited Howlin' Wolf and James Brown as two major influences, and they certainly are, we'd add the late Johnny "Clyde" Copeland, another guitarslinger whose raw passion and 'swing for the fences' vocal style was unforgettable.Black Joe Lewis and the Honeybears just released their fifth studio album, "The Difference Between You and Me," and their current tour brings the Austin, [...]

A drummer since his middle school days in Westport, Connecticut – when his dad bought him a gold sparkle snare drum ... but, hold on, Jackson, who likes to tell stories, tells a story:“I was the accomplished little elementary school thespian.

Theater: The farce is strong in Company's 'Loot'  Your first glimpse of Ryan Barrow’s well-appointed set for the Company Theatre production of “Loot” – complete with an open casket front and center – may make you think you’re in for a dignified look at a 1960s British family in mourning.But if you know the playwright, Joe Orton, you know any reverential references will soon give way to irreverent black comedy. In his brief but prolific career as a playwright, Orton – just 34 when [...]

Music: Lucero bringing Memphis rock to Boston “In the beginning we didn’t expect to be here 20 years later, or, we expected to be rich and ruling the world,” said Ben Nichols, singer and guitarist for Lucero. “We’re somewhere in between – there’s no limos with hot tubs in them, alas, but we’ve found out it’s better without that stuff. The heart and soul of the band – the core of it – is still here.”Lucero still sounds as immediate, [...]

The host of, performer in, and creator of the upcoming “Songs and Strings” shows at Club Passim on Oct. 9 and 10, is best known as a bass man – both double and electric – and often picks away on an acoustic guitar when accompanying his pal Josh Ritter on tour. Then there’s the business of a sousaphone taking up a lot of space in his Medford living room.So, the question: [...]

Theater: Cast is superb in ASP's 'Macbeth' It is more than passing strange to enter the majestic Sanctuary at the United Parish Church in Brookline for Actors Shakespeare Project’s production of “Macbeth,” a drama about a man who breaks all the rules of morality associated with religion. Under the direction of Dawn M. Simmons, the actors enter down every aisle and from the rear of the playing space that has been curtained off to hide the altar. A white cloth covered chair, later to be stained with blood, sits at [...]

In photos, a recollection of life among the... Movie fans know the Ju’/Hoansi, formerly known as Bushmen, from the South African international hit “The Gods Must Be Crazy.” The 1980 comedy, hugely popular yet controversial, makes no claim to accurately portray the peaceful hunter-gatherers who had long fascinated and been misunderstood by Westerners. But a new photography exhibit offers a documentary look into their lives 60 years ago, and to a lesser extent today, that also is a fascinating story about the Cambridge [...]
