The Flash News – Week Of April 10

Still a few more weeks until The Flash comes back from its final hiatus of the season. But we weren’t left empty handed as we got a couple of news items this week. Provided, as always, by our friends at The Flash Podcast (catch it here on The Mixx Radio Network at Wednesdays at 6 PM EST/3 PM PST), let’s go through this week’s news of all things Flash.

New The Flash 3.19 Trailer Released: Return Of Rogues

A new trailer was released by The CW this week with some new footage from episode 19 titled “The Once and Future Flash”. Not only will we see Killer Frost unleashed, but we will see the return of Mirror Master (Grey Damon) and The Top (Ashley Rickards), but with a twist. This will be the future versions of the characters as Barry goes to 2024 to try and get answers on who Savitar is.

“The Once and Future Flash” — (8:00-9:00 p.m. ET) (Content Rating TBD) (HDTV)

TOM CAVANAGH DIRECTS; BARRY TRAVELS TO THE FUTURE TO SAVE IRIS – Barry (Grant Gustin) travels to the future to find out Savitar’s still unknown identity in the hopes of saving Iris (Candice Patton).  Upon his arrival in 2024, Barry encounters future versions of his Team Flash friends, who, following the death of Iris, have become very different people, profoundly impacted by their showdown with Savitar.  It will be up to Barry to infuse a sense of hope back into the team, as he proves to be hero his future friends have been waiting for. Meanwhile, back in 2017, the hunt for Killer Frost (Danielle Panabaker) continues.  Tom Cavanagh directed the episode written by Carina Adly MacKenzie (#319). Original airdate 4/25/2017.”

The Flash 3.20 Synopsis: “I Know Who You Are”

A new description for episode 20 was released by The CW this week. The episode will be called “I Know Who You Are” that will be big for several reasons. For starters, two friends will be forced to fight each other as Vibe must go up against Killer Frost, perhaps alluding to the vision he had of them fighting each other in the fall. In addition, this will be Anne Dudek’s debut on the show as Tracy Brand who is described as potentially being the key to stopping Savitar!

“I Know Who You Are” — (8:00-9:00 p.m. ET) (Content Rating TBD) (HDTV)

VIBE FACES OFF AGAINST KILLER FROST – Barry (Grant Gustin) and the team meet Tracy Brand (guest star Anne Dudek), a scientist, who may be the key to stopping Savitar. Unfortunately, Killer Frost (Danielle Panabaker) is also after Tracy so Team Flash must battle their old friend, which proves to be particularly difficult for Cisco (Carlos Valdes). Joe (Jesse L. Martin) and Cecile’s (guest star Danielle Nicolet) relationship takes a big turn. Hanelle Culpepper directed the episode written by Bronwen Clark & Joshua V. Gilbert (#320). Original airdate 5/2/2017.”

Geraldo Rivera Responds to Kendrick Lamar: Hip-Hop Is ‘Worst Role Model’

Geraldo Rivera fired back at Kendrick Lamar after the rapper called out the Fox News talking head on his new album Damn.

On the Damn. cut “Yah,” Lamar rapped, “Fox News wanna use my name for percentage… Somebody tell Geraldo this nigga got some ambition,” a response to statements Rivera made on Fox News regarding the rapper following his controversial “Alright” performance at the 2015 BET Awards; Rivera’s comments are also sampled at the end of Damn. opener “Blood.”

Rivera responded to the Lamar lyric Friday afternoon in a 18-minute Facebook video, first complimenting the “great” rapper – “Aside from Drake, in my opinion, [Lamar is] probably the best hip-hop artist out there today” – before reiterating his stance that hip-hop music is “very destructive culturally,” as Rivera said in a 2015 Huffington Post interview where he also criticized rap.

“[Hip-hop is] the worst role model. It’s the worst example. It’s the most negative possible message,” Rivera said Friday. “And what’s the point of it? I mean, you sell records. I get that. You sell records. I get that this stuff is, you know, popular, but it avoids the central reality, just as Black Lives Matter avoids the central reality.”

Rivera continued, “I know that the real danger to real black men and real brown men now is that their role model will sing about cops being killers and the system being stacked and there’s no chance of advancement and all the rest of it.”

Rivera went on to add that the issue of police brutality “pales in comparison to the ghetto civil war that’s being waged” in cities like Chicago, and that the African-American community would be better off looking up to artists like Marvin Gaye than rappers like Tupac and Notorious B.I.G.

“I have no beef with Kendrick Lamar, anyone else in the business, but if you don’t have a positive attitude, you’re dooming yourself to a life that you profess to despise,” Rivera said.

Phil Lesh, Jack Johnson, Norah Jones Lead Monterey Pop 50 Festival

Fifty years after the legendary Monterey International Pop Festival laid the groundwork for music festivals, the fest will return to California’s Monterey County Fairgrounds this June.

The Monterey Pop 50 festival – which runs June 16th to 18th, exactly 50 years after the original fest’s dates – will feature Jack Johnson, Norah Jones, My Morning Jacket’s Jim James and Phil Lesh, who performed at the 1967 Monterey Pop with the Grateful Dead, among those who will play the fest.

Other artists lined up to play at the 50th anniversary celebration include Kurt Vile & the Violators, Father John Misty, Gary Clark Jr., the Head and the Heart, Langhorne Slim and more. The festival’s full lineup will be revealed at the Monterey Pop 50’s site.

San Francisco-area promoter Another Planet Entertainment teamed with Coachella organizers Goldenvoice to revive Monterey Pop on its half-century anniversary, with organizers intent on recreating the feel of the original festival as opposed to its modern counterparts.

In an interview with the New York Times, Another Planet’s Gregg Perloff said, “How do you put on a show that has the good aspects of 2017 with some of the sweetness and innocence of 1967? We’re going to have a great sound system, but we don’t want to have huge video screens and special effects and lasers.”

The original Monterey Pop festival – orchestrated by producer Lou Adler and the Mamas and the Papas’ John Phillips – featured legendary sets courtesy of the Jimi Hendrix Experience, Otis Redding, Janis Joplin and Big Brother Holding Company, Jefferson Airplane, the Who, the Grateful Dead and more. The three-day festival, one of the first of its kind and the inspiration for mega fests like Woodstock, was the focus of an acclaimed documentary filmed by D.A. Pennebaker. Adler is also consulting on the 50th anniversary festival.
