When you strike with the sword

Slain heads fall down

Imploring help from the Almighty

-Ahmed Joumari

  Theatre Preview: A magic boy's magical journey of magicPDF files may take a moment to load

Full of magic, faeries, aerial sword fights and pirates, the spectacle of Peter Pan has made it one of the most popular dramatic performances since its first in 1904. Carrying on the tradition of flamboyance and incredible stunts, Alberta Theatre Projects is bringing the boy in green tights back for one of their most flare-filled shows of the year. Bob White, ATP's artistic director and the director of the show, claims it's still the same Peter, though it might not be the one everyone remembers.

Whether or not bling was the cause, God knows something has to be blamed for this album. "Blame the Bling" is a compilation of club mix tracks produced by the Soundbluntz, but the vast majority are not sung, played or written by them, and often just mixed or produced by the DJ duo.

Yes, Everclear are still making music. No, Welcome to the Drama Club doesn't have anything new to offer that hasn't already been heard from Art Alexakis & co. before. With Welcome to the Drama Club, Alexakis, the only remaining original member, clearly hoped to capitalize on an honest, personal expression of the troubles he's been through since Everclear's 2003 breakup.

  Spun: Swan LakePDF files may take a moment to load

Some things sound better on paper than they do coming out of a stereo. Such is the case for Swan Lake and their debut album, Beast Moans. Combining three of Canada's most distinctive songwriters--Dan Bejar (of Destroyer and the New Pornographers), Spencer Krug (of Wolf Parade and Sunset Rubdown) and Carey Mercer (of Frog Eyes)--Beast Moans could have contended for album of the year. Unfortunately, the album isn't the sum of its parts, though it isn't a complete disaster either.
