The Lobster Film Review
by Thanh Nguyen

Imagine living in a world where single people get sent to an institution. There, they are forced to fall in love with someone within 45 days or suffer the consequences of turning into an animal, and subsequently banished into the woods. The only upside is that they get to choose which animal they get turned into. Such is the world of The Lobster. continued...

Julia Holter at the Cobalt Review
by Trevor Wilson

A sellout in Vancouver is an uncommon thing for a non-domestic independent artist, unless the booking agent has done some horrible research and booked an adequate venue, or the artist is some massive superstar. But, with that being said, every now and then some artists are skyrocketed into the limelight by various publications, or craze whipped up by social media and actually sell out the show. continued...

DJ Spooky at The Fox Cabaret
by Chris Spangenberg

Multimedia artist Paul Miller, or DJ Spooky That Subliminal Kid, has come a long way from his initial involvement with the Soundlab Collective in New York City in the mid-90's to his later multimedia projects Rebirth Of A Nation, and his current collaboration with the Vancouver Art Gallery on its latest exhibition Mashup: The Birth Of Modern Culture. Taking his stage name from a character in the William Burroughs's novel Nova Express, Miller merges cultural and musical theory of postmodernism and musique concrete with DJ mixing techniques to explore the experience of sound in the info-laden context of the 21st century. Whoa. So when I heard he was re-scoring the soundtrack to the Situationist film Society of The Spectacle on January 30, I had to go. After all, it was the Subliminal Kid behind the wheels. continued...
