Music: Rogue Valley
“Rogue Valley has mastered the art of creating imagery through sound … they certainly do make beautiful music.” —Metro magazine
Hailed as one of the Twin Cities’ most spirited live bands, Rogue Valley and lead singer/songwriter Chris Koza make music that fills a dynamic spectrum, from surging guitar rock to woodsy finger-picking ballads, all done with “richly evocative vocal harmonies, which shift subtly as the band
moves from chamber folk to country rock to Beatles/Beach Boys pop” (City Pages). Tonight’s 89.3 The Current DJs: Jill Riley and Bill DeVille.
Movie: The City of Lost Children
Directed by Jean-Pierre Jeunet and Marc Caro
This visual phantasmagorical fantasy transports us to a place where children’s dreams are the hot commodity of evildoer scientist Krank. In the underworld of this strange land, a Russian sailor strongman (Ron Perlman) and a young thieving orphan set off to save the army of children from their dream-extraction purgatory. 1995, video, 112 minutes.
