Slanted! Enchanted! – Musical World
Almost three decades after its release, Pavement’s Slanted & Enchanted is still a big deal. A reissue is being touted as one of the band’s biggest hits.
The album was released on April 20, 1992, by Matador Records. The album is available in high-quality downloads, including MP3, FLAC, and the free Bandcamp app.
The album also includes a wealth of rarities. Its track list is a bit different than the album’s original edition. The album’s most famous song, “Harness Your Hopes,” is also included.
The album was a landmark in indie rock. It helped spark the “lo-fi” movement of the early ’90s. It also spawned a few of the genre’s most memorable tracks. In addition to the songs, there are several alternate track titles to choose from. The album was recorded in Young’s home studio over a few weeks.
The Slanted & Enchanted album has also been reissued on vinyl. The album features a few live performances as well. It’s an excellent introduction to the band’s music for younger listeners.
Another milestone is the fact that the album has been incorporated into a traveling museum exhibition. It’s one of rock music’s most unique treasures. The album has been adapted for the screen as well. It’s as influential as Nirvana’s Nevermind.
The most important thing about Slanted & Enchanted is that it remains one of the best albums. Its infectious songs are still a fun time. The album sold over 150,000 copies when it was first released.
The Slanted & Enchanted album is free to download through the Bandcamp app. This album is also available on cassette.
The Slanted & Enchanted musical will premiere in New York City on December 1. Matador Records will present performances on December 1, 8PM and 2PM, with the latter being a matinee. There will also be a small museum in the lobby. Among the many items on display is a commemorative plaque honoring the band.
Other notable mentions include the Slanted & Enchanted musical’s “Harness Your Hopes” video. The video was directed by Alex Ross Perry, who also made the short film Her Smell.
Rick Crom’s Musical
Among the plethora of musical revues on Broadway and Off-Broadway, one has garnered a wide swath of praise: Rick Crom’s Musical. The magic is that this show is performed by a quartet of performers, and the musical is written and directed by Mark Waldrop. The show is a far cry from the ole’ Broadway musical.
The show is a hit. It has garnered several Drama Desk award nominations for its lyrics, including for the best musical revue. Crom also starred in several Broadway musicals, including The Goodbye Girl, Footloose, and Urinetown.
He appeared in the off-Broadway revival of Merrily, We Rolled Along. We were the original music director for Chicago City Limits. He also contributed lyrics to the feature film The Big Gay Musical.
Crom has been making people laugh for over 60 years. He has appeared on television shows such as Chappelle’s Show, Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn, and Caroline’s Comedy Hour.
Crom has also performed stand-up throughout the country. He was a regular at New York City’s Comedy Cellar.
Rick Crom’s Musical is a show that demonstrates the merits of topical comedy, albeit in a non-traditional manner. The show provides a solid dose of entertainment. The show moves at a breakneck pace.
The song most likely to tap your toes is the one about the O.J. Simpson trial, which Crom also performed. The show also includes a surprise opening number from the musical Les Miserables.
Crom has also written several topical musical revues, including the one he co-wrote with book writer Marc Lipitz for Star Trek spoof Space Trek.
This show is a hit and has been running Off-Broadway for several years. He also recorded Who Writes This Stuff? A plethora of songs demonstrates his knack for the funny.
His most recent show is Newsical the Musical, a topical musical that lampoons the news. It has been nominated for several awards, including a Drama Desk award. It is currently playing at the Kirk at Theatre Row.
High School Musical: The Musical: The Series
Initially launched in 2006, the Disney Channel original film series “High School Musical” was unabashedly fun and wholesome.
This film also spawned a concert tour and spin-off series, “Sharpay’s Fabulous Adventure,” that incorporated references to the original movie. It launched the acting careers of Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens.
The new series, “High School Musical: The Series,” is based on the original movie but isn’t a continuation. It’s a mockumentary-style show about a group of students at East High School in Salt Lake City, Utah. They are preparing to stage a musical version of the movie.
The premise sounds intriguing, but it’s too meta to work. The series’ lead characters aren’t chemistry-filled, and the assumption could be more cohesive onscreen.
The showrunners want to keep the story fresh and exciting, but too many changes can make the show boring.
The series is set at East High School, which was the location of the original movie, but it doesn’t follow the film’s plot. Instead, the show follows a group of teenage theater enthusiasts who are preparing to stage a production of “High School Musical.”
In season three, the students prepare to perform “Frozen” and a new Disney film. The students also sing songs from other “High School Musical” movies. And while it’s fun to see the casts and characters re-enact the original movie’s iconic scenes and pieces, the show’s plot could translate better onscreen.
The new show has a few guest stars, including Corbin Bleu as himself. He appeared in the original film series as Cha Danforth and now appears in the new series as a documentary host at Camp Shallow Lake. Corbin says he’s excited to work on the series because it gives him a chance to show off his fantastic singing voice.
“High School Musical: The Series” is available on Disney+. It costs $8 per month, with a cheaper, ad-supported plan later this year. The show will also stream in 4K quality and Dolby Atmos sound. In addition, there’s an extensive archive of making-of footage.
