Whether we're popping a CD in our car stereos on the way to work or choosing a playlist for an all-night study session, all of us have our favorite artists that we continue to fall back on. Here's a list of the artists who have won that spot in our hearts… and on our iPods.
The first thing that needs to be pointed out about the Coen brothers' newest movie "True Grit," is that it isn't a remake of the 1969 John Wayne film. Instead, it is a faithful reconstruction of the 1968 book by Charles Portis.
"If Foxy Shazam was an animal at the zoo, well it'd be the lion that would bite your head off without even thinkin' about it!" These were the first words lead singer, Eric Nally, used to describe the wild ride we were about to go on this past Wednesday at The Slowdown.
The works of Hesse mcgraw and Dustin Bushon are completely diferent entities, but the themes they explore are quite similar: How public art shapes space. Speaking to a crowded gallery room on Jan. 23 as part of the College of Fine Arts and Media's Masters and Music speaker series, the two artists shared their views on what they do.
Neil Simon's The Odd Couple had its opening night at the Omaha Community Playhouse on Jan. 21. The Playhouse, a classy and spacious theatre maintained through community donations and staffed by volunteers, was warm with laughter as freezing temperatures kept the city of Omaha stiff outside.
The Gateway chatted with local band The Answer Team about who they are, where they've been, their times at UNO and plans for their next big album.
With the hopeless, hauntingly introspective lyrics of Tim Kasher and a slew of almost always cataclysmic melodies, Omaha's own Cursive has a dexterous ability to depress the happy-go-luckiest fellows, make the most virtuous of men question their beliefs, and break down the most perfect of relationships to a web of lies and boredom.
Any film fan worth their salt can usually predict who's going to be nominated for the major award shows. This year is no different, and although it usually leads to some epic battles, one thing most people can agree on is that when the nominees are announced later this month, the best actress category will probably sound a little like this: "And the nominees are...Natalie Portman, Natalie Portman, Natalie Portman, Natalie Portman and Natalie Portman."
