Combining piano and tap dance, Tao, Teicher stun and reinvent at Richardson Hall

This is the kind of music that overturns what you thought you knew about everything you’ve heard before. It makes you, sitting up on stage with the performers, think, “Jesus, what have I been listening to for my entire life?”

So for this installment of TTT, I reviewed gluten-free desserts in Princeton.

On listening to foreign music: Why songs matter beyond their lyrics

For The Prospect, Associate Editor Aster Zhang reflects on why they enjoy listening to foreign music, even when it’s in a language they don’t understand — finding freedom in not understanding any particular narrative in a song.

‘The French Dispatch’ is totally camp — but that's what makes it so great

“Heralded as Wes Anderson’s “love letter to journalism,” the film follows the ins and outs of a fictional American newspaper called “The French Dispatch of the Liberty Kansas Evening Sun,” based out of the also fictional French city of Ennui-sur-Blasé.”
