Why sad songs say so much

- Music is an essential part of the human experience. War ballads, breakup songs and other lamenting lyrics have defined world cultures for hundreds — if not thousands — of years. But most academics still don’t understand why we find solace in listening to sad songs. Now, a recent study tries to answer that question. “It [shows] a sign of some arousal and some calming, which seems a bit contradictory,” said Robert Zatorre, a professor of neuroscience at McGill University’s Montreal Neurological Institute and Hospital

Away from the bands, it's the kids who make a racket at Pasadena's Arroyo Seco Weekend

- June 24, 2017, 9:36 p.m. Away from the bands, it's the kids who make a racket at Pasadena's Arroyo Seco Weekend Amid the many practiced rhythms and melodies that echoed across the valley during the first Arroyo Seco Weekend in Pasadena, a curiously delicate, improvised jam session occurred in a little tent set to the side. There, inside the shaded Kidspace area, a so-called musical petting zoo served to fill the air with the glorious, if disorganized, din of a dozen kids playing -- or playing with -- instruments

Alabama Shakes, Jeff Goldblum among musical highlights from Arroyo Seco Weekend's opening day

- Sunset is for soul at the Arroyo Seco Weekend in Pasadena as a handful of artists, mostly older, some young, took to the three different stages in the grounds in Pasadena to sing their hearts and heartaches out.

REVIEW: ‘Gypsy’ lets Naomi Watts wander in new Netflix series

- The minute Jean Holloway gives the wrong name to a barista you know something’s up. Sure enough, Holloway (Naomi Watts) isn’t just some hard-working therapist looking for a easy out at the coffee shop. She’s a questioning woman doing extra-curricular research on a patient who can’t quite get over his ex-girlfriend. In “Gypsy” (no, not that “Gypsy”), she crosses plenty of boundaries in an attempt to find herself

Metro Detroit Beatles tribute band celebrates 10 years of please, pleasing fans

Richard Caire, rock 'n' roll musician known as Kai-Ray, dies at 81

- To understand the impact Richard Caire had on Minneapolis’ music, one needs only to look back to the early 1960s. It was a peculiar time in rock ‘n’ roll, following the runaway success of Elvis Presley but before the British invasion led by the Beatles. It also was when budding and energetic rock bands were making the Twin Cities one of the major scenes in rock music, playing with a sound that was raw, eccentric and loud
