The Hood Internet

             The mash-up phenomenon exploded when Girl Talk hit the scene and in 2007, two friends from Chicago decided they could do it, too. So they put up a music blog and called it The Hood Internet. Six years later, Steve Reidell (STV SLV) and Aaron Brinx (ABX) have boiled down mash-ups into an exact science. Taking indie rock and, often times, “crunk” rap, they smoosh them together, a formula which has...

Martin Sexton

             Like Neil Young, Tom Petty and many other acoustic musicians before him, Martin Sexton finds solace in the simple act of strumming a guitar. Whether it’s sitting on a rock at the Grand Canyon or on stage in front of thousands of people, if Sexton has his guitar, he’s going to be alright.

Wow! 4-Star Comedy Smash Hit at Barn

It’s too bad Ben Beck wasn’t overweight when he started rehearsing as the leading man in The 39 Steps. He’d have shed any extra pounds during its six-week run at the Blue Barn.

Instead he gains the chance to be a 1930s Hollywood hero ala Alfred Hitchcock, whose portly presence even shows up silhouetted in as fast-paced an action comedy as you’ll ever see on stage. He’s helped by a comely and curvaceous Kirstin...
