Music: Mouthful of Bees
“. . . songs so raucous they sound like they’re on the verge of implosion . . . insanely catchy . . . a combination of the Beatles and the Stooges.” —Vita.mn
Heads bob and pulses quicken when MoB launches into the poppy, hooky, punchy, groovy indie pop that’s made them a local sensation. Much more than a buzz band, their sound balances joyful bounce, sugar-coated sting, and brain-lodging melody as they edge toward “next big thing” status.
Movie: Mr. Smith Goes to Washington
Directed by Frank Capra
Thinking that they can control inexperienced, wide-eyed freshman Senator Smith (Jimmy Stewart), the political establishment is not prepared for his genuine commitment to service and democracy. When they try to crush him, he fights back to represent the ordinary citizen with one of the most passionate speeches ever filmed. Nominated for 11 Oscars. 1939, 16mm, 126 minutes.
