It's in the Can 

Wednesday, Mar 26 2008
Last year, Danilo Macarrao and Marina Junqueira shook it so hard they won. Before you think "Pfft, I could do that," admit to yourself that in a hard-shakin' town such as ours, you have to shake it really hard to win the title at the Carnaval King and Queen Competition. For most of us, it's about appreciating the moves, not making them, but for eight talented dancers, the competition is a chance to shimmy and shimmer in six all-important categories (including audience reaction, which is where you come in). Performing in Folkloric, Brazilian, Caribbean, or Contemporary/Fusion styles, the dancers compete for five hundred bucks and the honor of sitting on the royal float come crazy-time, aka Carnaval, in May.

  • Arcade Fire at Shoreline
    Arcade Fire opened their US tour at Shoreline Amphitheater to a full house who was there in support of their album "Reflector," which was released last fall. Dan Deacon opened the show to a happily surprised early audience and got the crowd actively dancing and warmed up. DEVO was originally on the bill to support Arcade Fire but a kayak accident last week had sidelined lead singer Mark Mothersbaugh and the duration of the west coast leg of the tour. Win Butler did a homage to DEVO by performing Uncontrollable Urge.
  • Comic Con 2014

    Comic book enthusiasts, Cosplayers, TV and movie fans, and celebrities descended to sunny San Diego for the annual gathering at Comic-Con International.

    Whether hitting up a panel to check out The Simpson's announcement of a cross over with Family Guy or Futurama. Or hearing a new movie with Sam Raimie based on a video game or accidentally rubbing shoulders with Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) in cosplay, being a cosplayer, San Diego Comic-Con is the place to be.
