“McGill is pretty dry when it comes to comedy,” said Bring Your Own Juice’s (BYOJ) producer Abbey Hipkin, after the final performance of their three-night live show on March 17 at the Mainline Theatre.

Reanimating the corpse of trap music

There was a time, not too long ago, when it seemed that Lil Yachty was the future.
