SXSW Announces The 1975, Against Me!, And More

sxsw_2012-300x118Hard to believe, but SXSW has announced yet another round of new artists, bringing the total to an amazing 2,000-plus acts. But after seeing that the new additions include The 1975, Against Me!, and St. Vincent we have to admit it’s worth expanding an already enormous lineup. Also performing will be Kelis, Damon Albarn, Chromeo, Ingrid Michaelson, Kylesa, Speedy Ortiz, SZA, Lucius, Jacques Green, together PANGEA, Women’s Hour, Betty Who, and Lost in the Trees. You can view the full lineup here (warning: it’s going to take you a while to sift through), and catch SXSW from March 7-16 in Austin, TX.

Rutgers University Offering Beyoncé Class

drake-featuring-james-fauntleroy-girls-love-beyonceRemember when Rutgers University offered a class on the theology of Bruce Springsteen? That was pretty wild, right? Well now the university that brought you insight into the Boss is giving interested students the chance to dissect “American race, gender and sexual politics” through  Beyoncé’s music and unfolding career.

“This isn’t a course about Beyoncé’s political engagement or how many times she performed during President Obama‘s inauguration weekend,” explains Kevin Allred, the Ph.D student who will be teaching the class. The course will take a look at music videos, lyrics, and the strategy behind Beyoncé’s portrayal of her music. “It’s important to shift students away from simply being consumers of media toward thinking more critically about what they’re engaging on a regular basis.” Allred said.

In what seems to be a new trend, the school will also offer a course for Jay-Z fanatics titled, “The Sociology of Hip-Hop: The Theodicy of Jay-Z.”
