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!

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-Lawson, send it

No Time to Fuck: The Goldfrapp Essay

Konnichiwa! This is Irina Cummings and I'm here to discuss one of the most brilliant, innovative, and creative artists in the entire history of mankind: Goldfrapp – or as I like to call them , GODfrapp – the fantastique, highly inspirational, and sometimes criminally overlooked electronic music duo from London consisting of Alison Goldfrapp and Will Gregory, whose godly music has certainly influenced the vast majority of today's synthpop ladies, including Lady Gaga, Little Boots, La Roux, Annie and Florence + the Machine (not electro but still worth your while). They're primarily known for their mind-blowing music (which have spanned pretty much every style of electronic music – and some non-electronic as well), their abstract, sexually ambiguous – at times forthright – lyrics which are often not gender- specific , and their elaborate shows, not to mention the amazing visual aesthetics of their work, conjuring images that masterly complement

"Mon Soleil" - Ashley Park

If there's anything people take away from my piss-poor legacy, I hope it's what a huge, unabashed fan of "Emily in Paris" I am and will continue to be. People love "90 Day Fiancee," "The Bachelor," and other garbage - allow me "Emily," which is at least harmless, kind of goofy fluff (which does, unfortunately, lean into some stereotypes, as the country of Ukraine knows ). I have already watched Season 2 twice. And honestly my favorite part of this show (despite my crush on Camille Razart and Lily Collins channeling Audrey Hepburn hardcore ) is Ashley Park. This woman has superstar written all over her. She's a bona fide Broadway star, and "Emily in Paris" has served as her pivot into the zeitgeist.  "Emily in Paris" is also showcasing her vocal prowess front and center this season, with her covering BTS, "All By Myself," "Sympathtique," and Marilyn Monroe. But the real standout performance is th
