On a warm afternoon in June, crowds in Northwest D.C. celebrated Juneteenth by filling the air with the sounds of drums, toms, and voices, singing throughout the streets. I’m speed walking to catch my train home in order to spend the last few hours of Father’s day with my dad , himself a drummer, who just lost his oldest child and only son, my brother, unexpectedly that Monday. I zoom past the National Museum of African American History and Culture, where I’d spent part of my morning with Pharrell , recapping his second Something In The Water festival, which took place the same weekend. Despite being pressed for time, a sound distinct to the area brings me to a sudden halt: A crowd is dancing to live go-go. Here, t he rich history and culture that museums and music festivals hoped to cultivate played out in real-time. I wonder, briefly, if should just catch a different train and get home a little later. I choose my dad, but the sound is so enticing that w hen I … [Read more...] about How a Celebration of Go-Go Music Became a Scapegoat For Violence in D.C.
Performances from billboard music awards
Adele returned to the stage Friday for her first concert of 2022 — and her first public show of the 30 era — at London’s Hyde Park. “My God, I’m back at home,” Adele told the sold-out hometown crowd after her show-opening performance of “Hello.” “It’s so strange to be in front of a crowd again. I get so nervous before each show but I love being up here.” The singer, who last performed at the Brit Awards in Feb., delivered an 18-song setlist filled with hits from all three of her studio LPs, plus “Skyfall” and her rendition of Bob Dylan’s “Make You Feel My Love.” In addition to the first performance of 21 songs like “Rumour Has It” and “I’ll Be Waiting” for the first time in five years, the Hyde Park gig also featured the debut live performance of 30 ’s “Oh My God.” The Hyde Park shows — Adele will return to the British Summer Time event Saturday night as well — marked her first concerts in public in five years, when she played London’s Wembley Stadium in June … [Read more...] about See Adele Return to the Stage for First Public Concert in 5 Years
Earlier this year, Axl Rose joined Carrie Underwood onstage to perform two Guns N’ Roses classics during her headlining set at the Stagecoach Festival. On Friday night, the country singer returned the favor by making a surprise appearance onstage during the band’s gig in Tottenham, England. Underwood — who was in the U.K. promoting her new album Denim and Rhinestones — first popped up midway through GNR’s concert to perform “Sweet Child O’ Mine” alongside Rose and the band. “Ladies and gentlemen, from Nashville, Tennessee, Miss Carrie Underwood,” Rose said after the song’s first verse as Underwood emerged from the side of the stage. She later returned during the encores to join the band for their finale, “Paradise City.” (Rose and Underwood sang the same Appetite for Destruction songs together at Stagecoach, which Underwood dubbed “to the greatest night of my life.”) Underwood, who frequently covered “Paradise City” and “Sweet Child O’ Mine” in concert earlier in … [Read more...] about See Guns N’ Roses Bring Out Carrie Underwood at London Concert

Gopichand starring Pakka Commercial, a courtroom drama directed by Maruthi has finally hit the screens after a long time. The movie was released amid decent expectations but the lack of a thick story and proper treatment of the script has given way to a divide talk among movie buffs. Although the performances of the lead actors Gopichand and Raashi Khanna are applauded, the movie is billed as a routine run-of-the-mill attempt. Director Maruthi is known for films overrun with comedy but Pakka Commercial has very few moments of laughter. Raashi Khanna nailed her performance in the role of a young lawyer Jhansi. It is rare to find women actors to deliver comedy with perfect timing and impress the audience but Raashi seemed to have achieved the feat. She was seen in a couple of roles earlier, where she brought out her best comedy timing. The movie collected somewhere between Rs 2 Core and Rs 3 Crore from Andhra Pradesh and Telangana states on the release day. … [Read more...] about Pakka Commercial Day 1 Box Office Collection Worldwide: Gopichand’s Action Comedy off To An Average Start!
