Sofia Talvik To Play Phoenix: EXCLUSIVE Interview!

So here's what is up: Sofia Talvik is playing in Phoenix on Jan. 10 @ 8 p.m. @ the Lost Leaf. I will be there. You should go, because she's a talented singer-songwriter, Swedish and a longtime UC supporter. On Jan. 12, she will be Obscura (Rips) playing at 9 p.m.

Anyway. Sofia has been traveling across the USA in a RV. This is her first Phoenix show. Some guy in Scottsdale was a douche to her. I hope he gets a kidney stone. I asked Sofia some questions, per usual, here were here responses! Thanks, Sofia!


UC: How is your tour going? 
S: It's great! It's a big adventure. Arizona is our 36th state on the tour!

damn!


UC: What was 2012 like for you? 
S: A lot of work, a lot of fun and a lot of learning new things. We do all bookings and promo ourselves so the tour is not just about playing music and partying. It's been really hard work, but we've had some amazing shows so it's paid off. And it's so exciting to have seen so much of the US. I've really developed as a live artist as well I think, I'll always have that with me!

UC: What do you have planned for 2013? 
S: We're doing the last part of the US tour now, going from the west coast back to Florida where it all started in December 2011. Our last show is in March and then we're moving the tour to Europe so that's really exciting. I've mainly toured here in the states so I'm not sure what to expect from Europe.

UC: How are you liking Arizona so far? 
S: Wow! It's so beautiful. I've been to the Grand Canyon before and unfortunately it was a bit out of our way this time so I didn't get to go, but we were up in Oak Creek and recorded an acoustic live video and that was so beautiful. And even though I was freezing my ass off up in Flagstaff it was fun to see some snow. I'm pretty glad it's nice and warm here in Phoenix though!

UC: What can fans expect for your Phoenix shows? 
S: Well I always try to do intimate shows where people can feel comfortable to come up and talk to me afterwards. So I hope everyone feels they will get to know me a little bit. Sometimes when you play in college cities, the crowd are just used to hearing someone play music, but I talk a lot in between the songs too. It's just who I am.

Sofia is playing at The Lost Leaf on January 10th 9pm and at Obscura (Rips) on January 12th 9pm. Check out her music and grab some free downloads here!

"Chang-E" - Emmy the Great (new album out 10/9)

Emmy the Great drops her new album tomorrow on Bella Union - the fastest album she says she's ever created.  "April /月音" was completed after a trip to to her birth city Hong Kong in 2017. In early 2018, Emmy the Great made "April /月音" in a two-week period in Brooklyn - which was delayed for release until now because of her maternity leave. After recording this album, Emmy moved (for good) back to Hong Kong.  Since her original trip to Hong Kong, things have become quite tumultuous there. Said Emmy. "I’ll never know why the city called me back, but I know what it gave me. In return, I want to give it this album. That Mid-Autumn, nobody could have predicted what was to come, neither the atomization that began with the anti-Extradition Law protests in June 2019, nor the struggle for democracy that continues now, through the Covid-19 pandemic. To witness your birth city in its greatest moment of need is a powerful, humbling event, and I know I watched Hong Kong

Give JR a Break

Recently, I've been reading some sites that have criticized James Roday, the lead actor on the USA show PSYCH for an apparent weight gain. But you know what? Who gives a flying fizzle stick if James Roday is slightly larger than he was 4 years ago. Apparently, it wasn't enough to scare away his current girlfriend/ co-star Maggie Lawson. (Who is one hell of a Catch!) And NO they are not engaged. That seems to be nothing more than a rumor, but there is a very high chance of it happening in the near future. Anyway, as long as PSYCH continues to entertain I don't mind about James Roday's waist. He, and Dule Hill, and Corbin Bernson too, can eat all the fried broccoli they want. The last episode of PSYCH wasn't so smashing, but I don't blame it on dietary issues. QATFYG: Are you keeping up with Psych? And who is hotter, James Roday or Maggie Lawson? (Trick Question but idk why) PS: If you have heard any more news on Roday and Lawson becoming Roday-Lawso

movies you should see: hiroshima mon amour

Hiroshima, Mon Amour this movie has been on my mind a lot lately, due to the recent events in Japan. when I saw it about a year ago, it easily made an impression on me. easily. it was just so beautiful, in every way thinkable. it follows the story of a French actress and her Japanese architect lover, having a conversation together as they lie in bed. the majority of the film is told in flashbacks of their lives in WWII (the film was made in 1959, so there's a ten year gap there). he was directly affected by the dropping of the atom bomb in Hiroshima; she was ostracized due to her involvement with a German soldier. the reason I was propelled to see it was the song "Burning Hearts" by My Favorite- "I was an architect, she was an actress, I drew the Eiffel Tower upon her dress." (really good song too, by the way! RIP My Favorite). luckily, you can find the movie online. here's a portion of it: I HOPE YOU LIKE READING FILMS it's given credit (so I am
