FEBRUARY | MAY


We're getting through catastrophic times with cataclysmic action and art.

APRIL 7: IANWILL

This introspective metalcore band from France:
I Am Not What I Look Like, or IANWILL, is one of my favorites. Find out why!

APRIL 8: ANGELA DAVIS

"Success is figuring out how to ask the right question
in a particular moment, and partly about
making new mistakes, not old ones.
I don’t think there’s an ultimate point where
you could say, ‘This is freedom, we’re there."

APRIL 22: GNAWA STREAM III: MAALEMAHS, MOQADEMMAS AND GNAWIYAS

APRIL 28: GNAWA STREAM IV: DIFFERENT GNAWA STYLES

"How do we start to tell the differences between Marsaoui
(Essaouira Gnawa), Casaoui (Casablanca), Fassi (Fes),
Marrakchi (Marrakech Gnawa) and Rabati Gnawa?
Many maalems know each one so you learn while listening.
And every style has its history!"
