Album review: Fuzz’s “II”

FUZZ “II”

In The Red

Release: Oct. 23

Punchy, punky and psyched out the mind. What else can be said about Fuzz’s second album that hasn’t already been said about the trio’s first release? The aptly named second album, “II,” takes the ideologies presented in the band’s debut effort and dips them in a metal...

‘Sex, relationships, sex, abortion, sex, death, suicide, sex ...’ Rock-infused and racy, FLC production of ‘Spring Awakening’ isn’t your typical musical

You’ll likely want to download the alt-rocky soundtrack after you see the show, while the story and themes just might rip your heart out....

Daniel Craig had some fans quite shaken and others stirred with his declaration last month he’d rather slash his wrists than play James Bond again. And though I’ve found Craig to be an excellent Bond in his four turns as 007, maybe it’s time for a new and fresh edition...
