Despite their determinedly of-the-moment sound, Redfoo and Sky Blu are carrying on a long pop lineage: the former is Motown founder Berry Gordy's son, the latter his grandson. As red-hot electropop duo LMFAO, the uncle-nephew pairing electrifies dance floors with manic odes to party life. The 2012 Sorry for Party Rocking tour explodes with fan favorites such as "Party Rock Anthem" and newer hits such as "Sexy and I Know It," which has a bouncy swagger that dominated the Billboard Hot 100 chart for 28 weeks. Meanwhile, the band parades in neon animal prints amid backup dancers, bobbing beneath giant robot heads, tossing inflatables into the crowd, and creating a spectacle Metro Weekly calls "enormously entertaining."
Established by a group of seven theatrically dedicated friends, the recently inaugurated Throughline Theatre Company stages ambitious productions of both famed and upcoming works within Seton Center’s sizeable 300-seat theater. Shakespeare's Othello unfurls its tangible drama across the main stage, imbuing theatergoers with an in-depth glimpse into the tale of love, tragedy, and betrayal usually only reserved for epic playground battles over the seesaw. In keeping with its innovative spirit, Throughline has cast actress Molly Maclagan to play the traditionally male role of Iago, the duplicitous schemer who wreaks havoc in the lives of the titular character and his true love, Desdemona. Watch the cringing downfall of the doomed Moor of Venice while stealing sideways glances at possibly treacherous audience members.
