. They Looked To Nirvana And Liz Phair

The five best choruses you’ll hear this year are probably all on Momma’s Household Name, the third album by the Los Angeles-born, New York-based alt-rock band comprising 23-year-old Etta Friedman and 24-year-old Allegra Weingarten, as well as 23-year-old Aron Kobayashi Ritch. Armed with a real studio for the first time, they took the opportunity to lean all the way into their major-label ’90s influences — artists like Nirvana, Liz Phair, and The Smashing Pumpkins — resulting in a polished and unrestrained singalong sound.

Roe v. Wade Overturned: Liz Phair, Jason Isbell, Garbage and More Respond to Overturning of Abortion Rights in U.S.

Artists have started voicing their opinions against the U.S. Supreme Court’s overturning of Roe v. Wade on June 24. The constitutional right to abortion, which has been upheld for nearly a half-century following the landmark Roe v. Wade case of 1973, protecting a woman’s choice to have an abortion, has been abolished. Under the ruling, abortion will be illegal in at least 16 states with more states expected to follow. Nearly half of the states within the U.S. have or will pass laws that ban abortion, while others have enacted strict measures regulating the procedure.

Liz Phair and Tyler Perry: Michael R. Jackson Explains the Inspiration for 'A Strange Loop'

The 2020 Pulitzer Prize-winning Broadway musical A Strange Loop—now nominated for 11 Tonys, including Best Musical—makes many of its influences clear over the course of its exhilarating 90 minutes on stage. Written by Michael R. Jackson, which he started as a monologue shortly after finishing his undergraduate degree at NYU's Tisch School of the Arts, it's the story of a Broadway usher, not unlike Jackson once was, named Usher who is in the process of writing his own musical called, of course, A Strange Loop, which aims to be a "Big Black Queer Ass American Broadway Show."
