Music: Chastity Brown Band
“Melding bits of soul, jazz and rootsy Americana into a potent stew, at times Chastity sounds like a young Mavis Staples, but with an edgy urgency instead of any retro affectation.” —Jim McGuinn, 89.3 The Current
Throw all genres and hyphenates together you want to describe her—indie, roots & soul, rock, blues, and country—they are all right, and also not enough. Chastity Brown writes songs that are carried deep in the American psyche, with the hunger, desperation, and confidence that runs through our times.
DJ: Jade, 89.3 The Current
Film: Danger: Diabolik
Directed by Mario Bava
“When he springs into action, however, the film springs with him.” —A.V. Club
John Phillip Law is Diabolik—a dashing masked anti-hero living underground with his partner in crime Eva (Marisa Mell), running from the law for his many burglaries. Valiantly, the two never harm the innocent and remain genuinely in love. This B-movie is based on an Italian comic strip and bears the familiar dynamic action, carefree sensuality, and campy Pop art set design of other films from the decade. 1968, video, 105 minutes.
