In honor of the one-year anniversary of their universally acclaimed sophomore LP Burnt Sugar, Florida punks Gouge Away have reworked their b-side hit “Stray.” The track flaunts the softer side of Gouge Away —  gauzy vocals, warbly guitar leads, and dreamy melodies— and today, they've unveiled their music video for the song.  The “Stray” video offers a glimpse into the life of Gouge Away on the road, where they've spent the entirety of the last year in support of Burnt Sugar.  The band comments: 'This is a project we made for ourselves that we wanted to share with you,” the band says of the track. “The music video is like a scrapbook to appreciate the opportunities we've been granted and the bands we've been able to call friends along the way. Thank you to everyone who has taken this journey with us.”

I had the chance to catch the SECT season opener, Mamma Mia!, last weekend and it was sensational! The cast, a great mixture of high energy women and men ranging in age from young 20 and 30-something newcomers to some SECT theatre mainstays, all came together and blew the roof off the Orpheum with this tribute to the Swedish mega-hit band. You can't help but sing (and dance) along to every song, because you know them all by heart.

Raise your hand if you have ever discovered something new, Googled it, found the Wikipedia page, which then made you go off on a flurry of related topics and suddenly time has just passed by? I'll raise both hands because I'm not ashamed to say that this happens to me often. Sunday was one of those days, all thanks to the fantastic production of Silent Sky at Detroit Mercy Theatre Company who educated me on Henrietta Leavitt. The Lauren Gunderson play is the fascinating true story about the 19th century astronomer who was hired to join a group of women a?oecomputersa?? and living in an age when women could neither vote nor express an original idea. Despite not being allowed to touch a telescope, Leavitt and her female colleagues at the Harvard Observatory made ground-breaking discoveries about the universe that remain vital more than a century later. The simplicity and elegance of this production of Silent Sky made the importance of Gunderson's words stand out to the audience and the cast of five worked seamlessly together to bring this impactful and moving production to life. It is a brilliant piece of Michigan theatre.
