More than a decade after its Broadway debut, the Tony-winning musical Wicked is still riding a wave of hype soon to play out in a film adaptation reportedly starring Lea Michele (Glee) and Harry Styles (One Direction). Based not on L. Frank Baum’s The Wonderful Wizard of Oz but Gregory Maguire’s loaded remix Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West, the box office record-breaker explores the backstories of sharp, green-skinned Elphaba and bubbly blonde Glinda—polar opposite roommates at Shiz University. In a story for The New York Times, Daniel Handler (aka Lemony Snicket) noted civil rights violations in Munchkinland, yellow bricks laid by slave labor and flying monkeys (subjects of a disastrous experiment) as hallmarks of this “two-act flashback of radical reinterpretation.”
Likened to Patsy Cline by producer Gordon Raphael, 17-year-old, Texas-based French singer-songwriter Victoria Celestine celebrates the release of her new CD Back Home in San Antone with a concert featuring Juanito Castillo and an after-party with Zydeco Blanco.
For a 17 year-old, Texas-born French singer-songwriter Victoria Celestine has already racked up some impressive credits. Back in 2010, Celestine caught the attention of producer Gordon Raphael (the Strokes, Regina Spektor), who later worked with her on seven acoustic tracks. While still 14, Celestine mixed elements of country, pop and folk on her debut From the Outside. Reviewing the album for the Current, Enrique Lopetegui applauded the pianist/guitarist’s songwriting chops, likening her voice to “Norah Jones on chamomile tea.” (Raphael commented on the review: “I totally think she is a super talent, and as musically ambitious as anyone I have met!”). In celebration of her sophomore effort Back Home in San Antone, Celestine performs at Sam’s with a full band featuring Juanito Castillo, Randy Reinhart and Ron Knuth. Zydeco Blanco plays the after-party.
Among the recent (alleged) highlights from the Sun Sentinel’s weird-news blog FloriDUH: a woman who called 911 to sexually proposition a cop, a man arrested for smoking marijuana in a maternity ward and a man who made a bomb threat while being transported in an ambulance. What is going on with the state Patton Oswalt calls “America’s drooping nut sack”? Maybe this Contemporary Art Month event at High Wire can help explain. Following a feast of the traditional stewed-palm-heart delicacy swamp cabbage, High Wire will present two other Sunshine State treats named after the dish: a short-subject documentary on Florida “crackers” (the actual name for the state’s first European settlers) and a performance by a Jacksonville-based blues-rock band with songs such as “Purdy Mouth,” “Poontang” and “More Booty With Buddha.” BYOBS (Bring Your Own Bath Salts).
If B-movie star Bruce Campbell had his own late night talk show, Calabrese would be the house band (and I’d totally watch that over Fallon’s Tonight Show). The Italian-American brothers Calabrese funnel their fascination with horror flicks, comic books and the occult into straightforward punk rock that’s sometimes called Gothabilly, and more generally known as horror rock. Calabrese seems perfectly content to be pigeon-holed—though their musical talent hints at broader potential—with album titles like 13 Halloweens, The Traveling Vampire Show, Dayglo Necros and their latest, 2013’s Born with a Scorpion’s Touch. Like Campbell, they seem at once to be in on the joke and to embrace it fully, one early song’s lyrics were entirely comprised of 1950s “creepshow” film taglines. And for a band that sings almost exclusively about vampires, motorcycles, zombies and vigilante justice, they’re weirdly wholesome. Typically, my first reaction to the lyrics “I’ll smash in your teeth and your mouth will explode,” isn’t “aw, how sweet!”
