The Wailin’ Jennys at Caltech

The Wailin’ Jennys at Caltech

All the way from Canada come the Wailin’ Jennys, an all-lady vocal folk trio, none of whom are named Jenny. They’ve won a Juno Award (Canada’s Grammys — a CanadaGram?) for best “Roots & Traditional” album and have been making regular appearances on A Prairie Home Companion.

Singing Nuns

Singing Nuns

Monty Python this is not. Rather, it’s a choir of Carmelites from all over the Southland, putting on a rare show for those outside the convent’s walls. The program spans centuries, from old-timey Gregorian Chants to ultramodern contemporary Christian, but has a unifying theme: light. Because, as Mother Regina Marie says, “Times are dark.” The […]

Hair Raising

Hair Raising

As you may have already guessed, I love a bright red Mohawk. Maybe it’s because I never had the nerve to rock such a radical look. I barely dipped my toes into punk — when I was 15 and wore a trash bag and black lipstick to a Devo concert. That was 30 years ago, […]
