The Sundance Film Festival is where little known indie films can get big distribution deals and become Oscar contenders. Oscar nominated films like the documentary Exit Through The Gift Shop (2010), Boyhood, and Whiplash were all Sundance films.  

At the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, a new film is garnering huge amount of buzz and recently won a $7 million distribution deal with Open Road Films and Sony Pictures.  Dope is the name of the film and also how some critics are describing this coming of age comedy.

  • Volunteers pack up meals in the basement of Our Redeemer Lutheran Church on 19th and Wisconsin Ave.
  • More than 100 people volunteer with JOMM each week.
  • Founder Chris Capper.

What began with a singular box of donated bread has blossomed into a thriving nonprofit organization, serving more than 100,000 meals a year to Milwaukee's hungry.

Just One More Ministry takes donations from area caterers, restaurants and grocery stores that would normally be wasted and packages them into a meal for four.  Then, those meals are delivered to people in need through its network of partner churches.

We go down-under for some future funk from Sydney’s Wave Racer.   The Sydney based prodcuer has captivated my attention with his remixes of Ghost Town DJs My Boo and his Foster The People Remix.  I recently downloaded his new EP, and wanted to give him the spolight on tonight's program.

5 Songs We Can't Stop Listening To (With guest The Soil and the Sun)

Click to enlarge

The musical floodgates have opened. Bjork, Sleater-Kinney, Joey Bada$$, Belle and Sebastian and Mark Ronson all released huge albums last week, but none of those albums could hold a candle to hometown rapper WebsterX, let alone The Decemberists or St. Vincent. With the competition so stiff right now, you know that the 5 Songs We Can’t Stop Listening To really are the cream of the musical crop.
