In this week’s Village Voice, Ben Westhoff profiles the white, Jewish comedy-rap duo It’s the Real, Andy Beta rounds up an exciting new crop of outer-borough dance music labels (including WT, Golf Channel, and L.I.E.S.), and Rachel Devitt provides a bluffer’s guide to globalFEST 2011.
In Film, J. Hoberman reviews the actually kind of sweet new Abel Ferrara flick Go Go Tales, Ella Taylor chats with Palestinian director Elia Suleiman, Karina Longworth on Gwyneth Paltrow’s abysmal Country Strong, and Nicolas Rapold heads to Lincoln Center for their Peter Weir retrospective.
In Theater, Alexis Soloski interviews Alan Rickman ahead of his stint in John Gabriel Borkman at BAM.
