Excerpts from New FANNIE LOU Musical Showcase One Woman's Voting Rights Struggle; Concert Set for Carnegie Hall Tonight
by BWW News Desk - Oct 8, 2014

A little over 50 years ago, on Aug. 31, 1962, an African American sharecropper who had spent most of her life working in Mississippi fields traveled to her district's county seat to register to vote. She was denied the right. So began the public activism of Fannie Lou Hamer, whose struggles for voting and civil rights spanned the next 15 years.

Nirvana Set Releases IN UTERO 20th Anniversary Reissue
by Richard Best - Sep 21, 2013

To say that Nirvana's third and ultimately final studio album In Utero was 1993's most polarizing record would be the understatement of a decade. The unadorned sonic rawness of Steve Albini's recording laid bare every primal nuance of the most confrontational yet vulnerable material Kurt Cobain, Krist Novoselic and Dave Grohl would ever record.
