This Week in the Voice


Fall Arts! Along with looks ahead at the various season highlights, Aaron Hillis interviews Juliette Binoche. Robert Shuster contemplates Sarah Anne Johnson. Jed Lipinski reads Interesting Times: Writings From a Turbulent Decade by George Packer. Dan Weiss takes in The Pains of Being Pure at Heart. Brian Seibert reviews Reggie Wilson and Andrea Ouamba at BAM. Robert Sietsema picks the best Retro Dining experiences in town. Alexis Soloski considers the achievements of female playwrights.

New Beatles remasters! “In 2009, better sound quality means as little to as many as it ever has,” says Rob Harvilla. “Will anyone bite now? Should they?… Oh, hell, yes.” He explains.

Ward Sutton sees successors to The Beatles: Rock Band, including Pete Best‘s Drummer Hero and Grand Theft Ono!

The Blueprint 3! Zach Baron runs through the backstory (The Black Album, “retirement”) and does the review: “Like Jordan wearing the 45, Jay’s not the wickedly smooth, lyrically arrogant technician he once was.” Which turns out to be alright.

Once and current Manhattan D.A. candidate Leslie Crocker-Snyder has been in the law-and-politics game awhile. Tom Robbins took notes.

Plenty more where that came from.
