Music Festival Season

By Larissa Haltom: Entertainment Editor

Music festival season will be here before you know it. Each year, thousands of music fans flock to festivals, eager to experience a host of musicians live in one place. These events may last for one day or a full weekend, but each promises a unique music festival lineup. Music festivals, like Coachella, have a wide range of genres, from country to punk to blues, and everything in between.
Many festivals are coming up soon like Hard Summer in August, Camp Flog Gnaw in November, and Rolling Loud in December. Most of these festivals start selling tickets as soon as May, offering layaway plans for the festival goers.
Carson High school senior, Andres Vera stated, “I’m attending Hard Summer, Rolling Loud, and Camp Flog Gnaw. My preference, I could care less about Rolling Loud and Hard Summer , I’m just going for my friends.”
Many people prefer different festivals over others, either because of the music genres/artists or just the crowd of people who attend the festival.
An average music festival ticket price ranges from $90 up to $1000 depending on general admission or VIP tickets, lay away plans do help but only to a certain extent.
CHS junior Reymar Razon said “ I do want to attend music festivals but it’s too pricey.”
Festivals can be fun and a lifetime experience but it’s a luxury. As a student, save up and treat yourself to a good time.

Shazam! (Movie Review)

By Alberto Diaz – Staff Writer

Released on April 5th, Shazam!, directed by David F. Sandberg, sees teenaged Billy Batson forcefully thrust into a motley group home. There, Billy reluctantly befriends Freddy Freeman, a crutch-bound superhero fanatic. Upon protecting Freddy from bullies, Batson is teleported to the Wizard Shazam, who deems the runaway “pure of heart” and bestows him with the wisdom of Solomon, strength of Hercules, stamina of Atlas, power of Zeus, courage of Achilles, and the speed of Mercury (See? It spells “SHAZAM.” Pretty neat, huh?). This allows Batson to turn into a nameless, thirty-something, Superman-comparable Adonis whenever he says the word, “Shazam.” The film then follows the teen-turned-titan’s comedic exploits as the champion of the Rock of Eternity, the center of all magic. But Billy must use his powers to deal with someone deadly from the Wizard Shazam’s past, who is trying to take the 14-year-old Batson’s newfound abilities for themself. Continue reading “Shazam!
