Music: Gospel Gossip
DJ: Barb Abney
“It’s fuzzy, pretty, and uberrhythmic—that midtempo, incredibly danceable pop that Fugazi and Nation of Ulysses popularized in Washington, D.C., in the early ’90s.”—Bitch Magazine
Northfield’s Gospel Gossip crafts beautifully sprawling, buzzed-out power pop with cathartic melodies, necessary noise, and playful bounce all fully realized through Sarah Nienaber’s inimitable vocals. Take in 60 minutes of fun and fierce songs that “harken to the finer, headier days when brainiacs like the Velvet Underground and New Order were called party music” (City Pages).
Movie: Cool Hand Luke
Directed by Stuart Rosenberg
Newman’s spirited portrayal of an unruly Florida prison camp inmate created a quintessential anti-hero of the rebellious late ’60s. With memorable lines such as “What we’ve got here is failure to communicate,” and the classic scene that sparked egg-eating contests among young Americans everywhere, Cool Hand Luke remains Newman’s most unforgettable characterization of youthful defiance that even now packs a gut-wrenching punch. 1967, 16mm, 126 minutes.
