Last year I told you about some scary movies you should consider to get you in the Halloween spirit. Would you like some more of that? Good.

Theater season is now in full swing, with performances of both amateur and professional levels filling the multiple spaces of the University of Mississippi campus.

This weekend and next, Ole Miss Theatre can be seen in Meek Auditorium with the first “Second Stage” show of the season: “Some Girl(s),” directed by Rory Ledbetter.

“It was terrible,” Yarbrough added.

Arguably the most recent period of substantial musical development, the late 80s/early 90s scene wed the stylized post-punk melody of new wave with the experimental guitar-driven trappings of Hendrix-era electric blues. Bands Dinosaur Jr. and Sonic Youth came to epitomize this sound — an avant-garde antecedent to the mainstream alternative boom marked by the emergence of Nirvana.

Steeped toe to crown in this aesthetic, London quartet Yuck has gained legions of fans with its fresh, filtered take on the 90s.
