DAILY Music  April 29, 2018, by Libby Webster

"...As recently as this year's SXSW, Julia Halperin and Jason Cortlund's beautifully savage La Barracuda and Karen Skloss' psychotropic prom-gone-wrong flick The Honor Farm led this charge.

Hot Luck Review: Blackillac
Dynamic rap duo ready for prime time
DAILY Music  May 27, 2018, by Kevin Curtin
"...I came to Barracuda hungry. Given that Saturday night’s Blackillac appearance was programmed as part of the culinary carousal known as Hot Luck, “Playback” banked on munching on some innovative snacks, but there was nary a kabob, taco, or slider in sight..."
