    Amy Schumer

      After postponing an earlier show because, frankly, her big- and small-screen careers have taken off, Amy Schumer will take the stage Saturday night at the Palace as one of the most successful comedians working today. Her Comedy Central show, Inside Amy Schumer, is a top-five cable hit, and she’s got a film she made [...]

    Postmodern Jukebox

      Beyonce, Taylor Swift, Ariana Grande, Maroon 5, Radiohead . . . even Bon Jovi! It seems there’s no contemporary (or classic-rock) hit that pianist Scott Bradlee and Postmodern Jukebox wouldn’t consider transforming into vintage jazz, soul, Motown, country or doo-wop. Their videos have been viral sensations on the Internet, and they do it all [...]

With a sound that defies labels (“alternative metal” and “funk metal” crop up frequently), Primus earned a [...]
  • Underneath
