M&G satirizes cloak-and-dagger
"The Real Inspector Hound," the Masque and Gown show that premiered last night, is "first class family entertainment," according to one of its critics. The plot revolves around a parody of British whodunit theater and self-obsessed critics. Tom Stoppard's play shows two theater critics, Moon and Birdboot, who are more concerned with their personal lives rather than the characters on stage. The critics have differing opinions and seemingly different reasons for critiquing the play. Moon wants to one-up a rival critic, while Birdboot is attempting to woo an actress.
Vendetta's Red Death alive with passion
Hailing from Seattle, Vendetta Red is a band recognized for its lyrically driven rock with metal and screamo undertones. It is seemingly the undercredited saviors of the mainstream rock world. Sisters of the Red Death, the band's second album to be released on a major label, develops some of the more profound themes encountered on their first Epic Records release, Between the Never and the Now. The new album took two years to write, but the band simplified the tracking process and cut production time to two weeks.
