As the hot days of summer start to replace the only-slightly-cooler days of spring, the first thing on most people’s minds is probably how to make the most out of our time off from classes. The last thing on Trinikids’ heads, however, is how to spend that time in the midst of the heavy San Antonio heat. But for those lucky few who are preparing to return to the paper thin walls of Witt-Winn —...

“Cendrillion” adds little to the well-known and beloved fairy tale “Cinderella.” But that didn’t seem to be its goal, at least judging by Trinity’s rendition last weekend. A short, concise opera consisting of three acts, “Cendrillion” maintains the essentials of the fairy tale’s plot but adds the chance to admire some fun costuming and lighter opera singing. Maybe more critical to the busy cultural schedule of Trinikids, it was probably much shorter than whatever was...

The hardest part of watching a movie with significant hype is avoiding disappointment. Hype comes from both from outside sources and personal expectations, and it can cause you to not even be able to enjoy something because your mind is primed to focus on the things both loved and hated by others. I swear I tried to avoid these predispositions before watching “Isle of Dogs.” But legacy weighs heavily on the buzz around Wes Anderson’s...

Bombay Bicycle Club, the small, pub-style restaurant close to Pizza Classics by Brackenridge Park, used to be the buzziest way to spend your Thursday night. ThursBays, or Thirsty Thursdays, may no longer be the reigning champ of pre-weekend festivities for Trinity students. While I have fond memories from my first year at Trinity of passing ‘Bays on a Thursday night with a line stretching almost to the St. Mary’s and Mulberry intersection, this is no...

On Monday night, a piece of pop music glitter, followed by a storm of star-shaped confetti with “just another graceless night” printed in handwritten font, landed in Houston. A figure I had previously suspected to exist only in an ephemeral state took a corporeal form, filling the cavernous Toyota Center with the eponymous melodrama of 2017’s best album. Lorde’s tour for her latest album, “Melodrama,” presented a dance-filled yet emotionally potent celebration of her music,...

All but two of this year’s best picture nominees were set in the past, ranging between the 1940s wartime Britain of “Darkest Hour” and “Dunkirk” to the 2003 wartime Sacramento of “Lady Bird.” I don’t know what that says exactly about our current times, but looking at my  personal favorites of the nine films nominated, they are also the ones that are set in the past. Heading into this weekend’s Oscars, everyone is talking about...

Those waiting for news about this year’s Maverick Music Festival are wondering whether the show is still on. Though previous years’ lineups were announced by early February, there’s been no word from organizers, and inquiries into details about this year’s event have, so far, come up short. After the 2016 festival, festival founder Blayne Tucker told the San Antonio Current that he saw the operation going in one of two directions: “[The festival] seems to...
