Baron of the bizarre

Fifteen books later, Christopher Moore is still up for a challenge

Going on, and on, and on, and on

Jenny Lewis talks ‘The Voyager,’ ‘Troop Beverly Hills’ and that ticking clock

By Amanda Moutinho
It’s a magical moment when life syncs up with the radio. The right song comes on unexpectedly, and the world gets quiet. I had such an experience around this time last year on a road trip back from Toronto with friends.

East meets West

‘Terracotta Warriors 3-D’ explores the worlds in between

By Amanda Moutinho
When sitting down for a performance of Terracotta Warriors, things are a little unclear — and that’s not because it’s a full-length Chinese production in the middle of Denver. At first, the stage seems kind of fuzzy, that is until you slide on your 3-D glasses and everything comes into focus.

The jukebox of Lafayette

Nissi’s gets a facelift

By Amanda Moutinho
With a quick glance at the Nissi’s stage, one would think the pompadour wearin’, low voiced, gold jacketed, hip swingin’ singer was Elvis Presley himself. Upon closer inspection and a realization that it’s 2015, you’d notice the crooner was in fact Shelvis and her band the Roustabouts.

Another color in the crayon box

Melissa Etheridge says music saved her life

By Amanda Moutinho
From coming out as a lesbian to her political activism to talking openly about her breast cancer diagnosis, Melissa Etheridge isn’t shy to tell the world about her personal problems.

Framing Frida

New show pays homage to the revolutionary Mexican painter

By Amanda Moutinho
The name Frida Kahlo conjures different meanings for different people. For some she was an underappreciated artist, who lacked technical skill but had a strong vision. For others she was a feminist who broke gender roles and challenged traditional beauty.

Checking in with Cho

While laughter is the best medicine, Margaret Cho says comedy is the best weapon

By Amanda Moutinho
Margaret Cho is pissed off. She might even be a little crazy. Her list of grievances include LBGT rights, violence against women, the hypocrisy of the Duggar family and the continued examination of Bill Cosby. “People are still questioning whether or not he’s guilty. He’s so guilty,” Cho says. “After 40 women come forward and call you a rapist and have the exact same story, it’s very clear.”

ONE WOMAN, ONE FARM

Audrey Levatino shares her farming knowledge in her new book ‘Woman-Powered Farms’

By Amanda Moutinho
Audrey Levatino is a self-sufficient farmer — she has to be since, she runs it singlehandedly. So when it came to using a chainsaw, she knew she had to overcome her trepidation. “I didn’t start using a chainsaw when I first started farming for three or four years because I was afraid of it. I always asked my husband to do it. But once you learn how, it’s easier than a lot of things women do every day,” Levatino says. “It’s intimidating because it always seems like it’s been in the realm of the man’s world, but it’s not. It’s just another tool.”
