The Intelligence, Tonight! Like, Now! Go!


But isn't Local Cut all about Portland musicians?, you might lament. Then why is former A-Frames member Lars Finberg's The Intelligence featured on this page?

Sure, The Intelligence is sonically astounding, meshing garage-punk explosions (just listen to the nasty pop of "Dating Cops"), brooding, ...   More

Do you smell what Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is cookin'? It's pretty pungent. The former WWF star's newest vehicle, The Game Plan, is the Jersey Girl of sports movies—a Disney-produced piece of cinematic poo that stings the nose like a burnt, sugar-coated baby tu...   More
