With the advent of spring, it seems appropriate to delve into the ethereal and complex world of Pink Floyd, the classic 1970s anti-establishment rock-and-rollers who once ruled psychedelic culture. Their movie, “The Wall,” is more than just entertainment for the drug-minded, however — it also offers deep insight into issues of mental health.
This story is a part of Arts & Entertainment’s “Underdog” series running this week, which highlights commonly underappreciated artists and artistic mediums.
Upon entering Old Cabell Hall last Friday night for the Virginia Gentleman’s third concert of the year, audience members were tasked in the program to guess which five singers of the 17 had a correct biography in the program. Most stories involved absurd tales of quests to the North Pole, sandwich fights, crocodile wrestling and missing persons.
In most English literature classes, students are asked to determine a novel’s ultimate takeaway by analyzing the author’s diction, characters and as many subtle details as a discerning eye can catch. It’s enough to drive a student crazy — any object can be symbolic, and any small line may be foreshadowing.
Many people dream of traveling adventurously through the world, whether by backpacking Europe, going on a safari in Africa or driving across the United States.

Pennsylvanian indie rock band Dr. Dog managed to pack The Jefferson last Wednesday night as the group continued its nationwide tour promoting the October release of the critically-acclaimed “B-Room.”
Indie rock group The Head and the Heart has achieved tremendous momentum since forming in 2009. The band has opened for notables like Dr. Dog, Vampire Weekend and Charlottesville’s own Dave Matthews Band — all artists the Seattle-based band cites as inspiration. The band has accumulated enough fans to now have headlines of its own, and, with the release of another album last week, the group’s acclaim can only rise.
Ask just about any student if he likes music, and the answer is bound to be yes. Beyond this general preference, however, artists and genres tend to vary infinitely. For many, musical taste forms a major part of a person’s identity. College radio allows students, as well as college faculty and local community members, to share this identity with the world, or at least with a small chunk of it.
What do kilts, couples and Earl Grey tea have in common? They were all present last Thursday at the Lorna Sundberg International Center. A large house set deep into University Circle, the center hosts a variety of cultural programs that include everything from English language help programs to cooking lessons.
With all the renovations Newcomb Hall has undergone in the past few years, it can be easy to forget that the building is a hotbed of student life.

They show two movies — often popular releases that have left theaters but not yet made it to stands — each night for the unbeatable price of only $3. Upcoming movies include “Warm Bodies,” “Star Trek: Into Darkness,” and “Monsters University.”
