The Happiest Song Plays Last
  • The Happiest Song Plays Last
Looking for something to do today? Agenda's got you covered:

Sister Souljah, the writer, activist, and hip-hop artist who once really pissed off Bill Clinton, has a new book out, and she'll talk about it at Woodson Regional Library. A Deeper Love Inside is the sequel to her best seller The Coldest Winter Ever.

The Happiest Song Plays Last is the third play in Quiara Alegría Hudes's trilogy about Elliot, an Iraq War vet; his cousin, Yaz, a music professor; and their extended Puerto Rican family in Philadelphia. The play opens tonight at the Goodman.

"Kvelertak broke out big in the metal blogosphere with their devastating 2010 self-titled debut, not only because the power of their stalwart rock 'n' roll can override language barriers—all the lyrics and titles are in Norwegian—but also because they incorporate crucial elements of Norwegian black metal," writes Kevin Warwick in Soundboard. Catch their set at the Empty Bottle.
