Fans of musicals will not be disappointed with "Hairspray." This is a delightful romp with a soundtrack that will linger long after the movie is over. From the first moment the movie starts, so does the music. There is no preamble; the actors burst into song from the very first frame.
It seems Spartans are getting all the glory these days. But as incredible as Frank Miller's "300" is, movies aren't an interactive format. Luckily, the gods created video games. Those intelligent enough to play the original "God of War" for the PS2 were treated to one of the greatest action games of all time.
On the Website for Fol Chen's record label Asthmatic Kitty, the band names a few different artists they sound like. Among the accurate relatives lay Pink Floyd and Gwen Stefani. I can't imagine Asthmatic Kitty, who is home to artists like Sufjan Stevens, My Brightest Diamond, Castanets and Grampall Jookabox, would house an artist that compares themselves to Gwen Stefani, but for Fol Chen, it kind of works.

Anchorage Opera and UAA to offer new twist on fairy tale
Lackthereof have more albums than they have ever played shows. This isn't a product of poor managing but really because Lackthereof is a project that Danny Seim does out of his basement. His first six albums were handed out on CD-Rs to friends and family.
Bj?rk serves as a rite of passage for young music hounds' professional opinions. It's only when they hear the Icelandic wonder that aural aficionados realize that what someone thinks of a piece doesn't matter. Bj?rk is so strange and obscure that every opinion somehow manages to be objective fact.
"Hickory Cartoon Show" features 35 students and professional artists with over 50 works of art ranging from animation to sculpture.
Muse have been creating bombastic alternative progressive rock for over a decade. They have earned a reputation for sonic diversity and a uniquely grandiose style. “The 2nd Law” does nothing to challenge that perception. In fact, at times it seems like the album was made to uphold it. This is the most bombastic and grandiose Muse album ever, which seem to be the best two words to describe it.
The mornings of Sept. 28 and 29, 5th Avenue drivers were treated to something of a shock. Geeks in costume lined up these mornings to attend Senshi-Con, Alaska’s oldest and most reputable anime convention and nerd mecca. Senshi-Con had its humble beginnings in 2005. It was hosted in West Anchorage High School’s cafeteria by the school’s anime club. Since that first year, the event was held in UAA’s own Student Union, where it remained and hosted famous guests, such as voice actresses Caitlin Glass and Laura Bailey.

And now, for your holiday pleasure, watch as I struggle with the intensely difficult task of hierarchically ordering five of the best 2013 albums of that have graced KRUA's airwaves.

So I'm going to lay them out here in no particular order. You can decide.
