Notes from the Road

August 2010

Josh Ritter + Justin Townes Earle + Dawn Landes: 8 August 2010 - New York

Two young forces in Americana songwriting made for a pleasant Sunday night on Governor’s Island in New York Harbor.

Marvel superheroes, DC supervillians, video game characters and cosplayers (including Jessica Nigri) of all sorts make New York Comic Con a blast to attend.


London Film Festival 2014 Day 8: ‘Mr. Turner’

We conclude our coverage of this year’s London Film Festival with Mike Leigh’s long-anticipated biopic of J.M.W. Turner: a languorous, immersive, richly detailed work that surpasses expectations.


Blake Mills w/ Fiona Apple + yMusic: 8 October 2014 - Rough Trade (Photos)

Singer-songwriter and guitarist Blake Mills is touring in support of his new album Heigh Ho with instrumental group yMusic backing him. Friend Fiona Apple joined in in New York.


London Film Festival 2014 Day 7: ‘Whiplash’

A pupil/teacher story dressed up as a battle-of-wits thriller, the pushy, over-hyped Whiplash fails to impress.


Melvin Seals and Jerry Garcia Band: San Diego, CA - 3 October 2014

Seals isn’t merely continuing to play Garcia’s songs; he and his band continue to push the jams in the bold and exploratory directions the Jerry Garcia Band was always known for.


Gov’t Mule: San Diego, CA - 27 September 2014

The band's soulful, bluesy and hard rocking sound has led to 2014's "20 Years Strong" tour celebrating two decades of Gov't Mule.


London Film Festival 2014 Day 6: ‘Radiator’ and ‘My Old Lady’

Two films focused on ageing characters yield contrasting results. Tom Browne’s Radiator is an exquisite, intimate family portrait, but Israel Horovitz’s My Old Lady feels entirely fake.


London Film Festival 2014 Day 5: ‘The Imitation Game’ and ‘X Plus Y’

Two well-made, humane films focus on the lives of maths prodigies: Morgan Matthews’ modestly-scaled X Plus Y and Morten Tyldum’s epic Alan Turing biopic, The Imitation Game.


London Film Festival 2014 Day 4: ‘The New Girlfriend’ and ‘Something Must Break’

Issues of gender identity and sexuality come under scrutiny in today’s reviewed films: the latest genre-hopper from François Ozon, and Ester Martin Bergsmark’s explicit teen love story.
