  • Restaurant review: Momotaro

    Restaurant review: Momotaro
    Four-month-old Momotaro breaks a lot of rules. The menu is enormous, its seven pages enough to daunt even the most confident diner. The dining rooms are busy and boisterous, a far and noisy cry from the placidity toward which most Chicago Japanese...

     'The Royal Society of Antarctica': Life and love at the bottom of the world

    Hammer's 'Gridwork' plots Charles Gaines' captivating process
    Charles Gaines' drawings from the 1970s and 1980s are not for the faint of heart. Encountering all those big sheets of graph paper filled in with row upon row of tiny little numbers and Latin alphabet letters has the immediate appeal of undergoing an...

    Job No. 1, you must be fearless:  Alonzo King LINES Ballet
    "People dance who they are," says choreographer Alonzo King. "Moving is thought in action. So when you see great movers, you're actually seeing great thinkers." Long before 1982, when he founded Alonzo King LINES Ballet in San Francisco, King was...
  • This crowd gets emotional: It's emo night Taking Back Tuesday

    On a Tuesday night in February, the line to get into the Echoplex stretched all the way down Glendale Boulevard. Hundreds of mid-20s to early-30-somethings waited with huge grins on their faces, ready to hear the music that changed their young lives. Once...

    Cassandra Wilson reflects on Billie Holiday at 100
    Even now, as we approach next month's centennial of Billie Holiday's birth, the singer's story remains swathed in sensationalism. Junkie, prostitute, rape victim, prison inmate, bloodied lover – these are the terms that dominate her biography...

     Yo-Yo Ma: Let the global block parties continue

    L.A. Phil's Mirga Grazinyte-Tyla lights a fire at Disney Hall
    There is no such thing as a fluke Hollywood Bowl triumph. Given the combination of severely limited rehearsal time, amplification and summer orchestral doldrums, so much can go wrong that an outstanding conductor can easily make a poor first impression....
