Vote WLOY & Christmas Parade 10Best!!!

November 8th, 2017 by The Professor

Isn’t this amazing?! USA Today is trying to pick the 10 Best Holiday Parades in the country and one of the initial 20 they picked was the Mayor’s Annual Christmas Parade in Hampden!! It’s been going for 44 years (with only 1 shut down for snow) and WLOY has been a part of the parade for the last 8 years. We build a float on and around the station van and send our crew of WLOY elves out with bags of candy canes, shirts, and toys for kids along the route. With over 20,000 people on the street sides it’s no wonder we gave out over 3500 candy canes last year!!! When we found out that the parade was in the top 20 for this competition, we were excited to support it and tell you to vote. When we saw the featured picture seen by millions on the USA Today 10Best website was of THE WLOY FLOAT well… we kinda lost our minds. That’s Hillary Bowman ’14 up there throwing stuffed plush snowballs to the crowd on top of the WLOY van and inside the Merry Christmas Hon float. WOW! So, what can you do, other than just admire the fame we are now finding for Hillary? YOU can vote. And vote again. Right up until the day after the parade you can vote and repeat, and repeat… GO TO THIS LINK http://bit.ly/Vote4Baltimore – Share it with your friends and family, your coworkers, your pets, anyone that can click a link and vote. Vote often. THANKS!

PLRLS & The Hall Monitors 11/9 McGuire Hall

November 8th, 2017 by The Professor

This Thursday night marks the return of the amazing PLRLS to McGuire Hall. With a blend of punk, new wave, and a bit of sass, they’ll keep you jumping all show. From “Rose Garden” to “Look at the Nerds” there’s a bit of Talking Heads, a bit of Devo, a dash of Joe Jackson and some pop punk thrown in. As a bonus we’ll also have the great classic garage rock sounds of The Hall Monitors to keep you moving for another hour! The Hall Monitors bring us straight up fuzzed out classic 60s garage rock sounds. Everything they play should be on a slightly scratchy 45rpm 7″ record in every jukebox. Check out “She’s My Methodone” on their Bandcamp page for a sample of their style.

Check out the newest album from PLRLS on their website, or the single “Oh What a World” (aka “Worldstar”) below. And don’t forget to join us in McGuire Hall from 8-10pm on Thursday November 9th!

Rocky Horror Picture Show On The Quad! 10/26 8pm

October 25th, 2017 by Lindsey Zapata

WLOY will be presenting Rocky Horror Picture Show once again! Come to the Quad (or McGuire Hall if the weather is bad) and be transported into this strange, but energizing movie. The movie is so crazy that imdb.com could not provide more of an summary than “a couple has a breakdown in an isolated area.” And if you ever been alone with someone for an extended amount of time, you know exactly how wild things can get. The production is meant to be a satire on both science fiction and horror movies, which yields an unexplainable combination as gender play and madness take their toll. There are no words that can do this production justice and for that reason I suggest you come check it out for yourself. We’ll be giving the event the WLOY touch and be offering giveaways to the best costumes! So stop by the Quad on Thursday from 8-10pm.  If you know the movie, or want to pretend you did all along, feel free to come in costume and act along, or read up on the audience responses. Participation is highly encouraged!

Stefan’s Sports Wrap

October 18th, 2017 by The Professor

The NBA season is finally upon us! After months of crazy and unpredictable moves during free agency and through blockbuster trades, the squads have been finalized and ready to fight for a championship. Unless you are the Golden State Warriors of course, as you basically have nothing to worry about. Let’s jump right into some predictions and storylines for the 2017-2018 NBA season!

Let’s start with the lowly Eastern Conference. Despite the transactions made by the Cavaliers and Celtics to vy for the top spot in the conference, the Eastern half of the NBA is still leaps and bounds behind the Western Conference in talent and interest. The best overall player in the game, King Lebron James, is still with the Cavs, which automatically puts them in contention for a fourth straight Finals appearance. But, the #1 seed for a season ago, Boston Celtics, have made some monster moves themselves to try and catapult themselves into the discussion of teams who can take down the juggernaut that is Cleveland. The opening day roster for the C’s only has four…let that sink in…four returning players from last year’s 53-win team. This is unprecedented in the history of the NBA, but the players gained over the summer months may have made up for their significant losses. In the trade of the summer with the rival Cavaliers, the Celtics lost their leader and star point-guard Isaiah Thomas, small-forward Jae Crowder and the Brooklyn Nets pick for the upcoming draft pick (which will probably be a good

October 11th, 2017 by The Professor

What: Trevor Noah in Baltimore

Where: Hippodrome at Franc-Merrik Pac

When: November 4th at 7- 10pm (Unfortunately, the other date is sold out!)

The South African television, radio host and comedian, Trevor Noah, will be making an appearance in Baltimore! The host of The Daily Show will be doing stand-up comedy at the Hippodrome, and has already SOLD OUT one show, forcing them to book another date! SO YOU ARE IN LUCK! But hurry, the last show sold out in two days.

Trevor Noah has become one of the leading figures in modern pop culture and media. In his short time with The Daily Show, he has been able to accomplish so much in satirical political commentary– including getting a White House interview with Former President Barack Obama. He also finished the first quarter of 2017 with one of the highest rating The Daily Show has ever seen. If you can’t make at to his stand-up show, I encourage you to check out his work! He is a talented commentator, and performer.
