Reminder!! Star Search this Thursday 4/24

April 22nd, 2014 by Joe Lomuti

KANYE_WEST_ANIMNow, WLOY usually isn’t in the business of beating dead horses (we consider ourselves humanitarians if anything). But we must again remind you that our last event of the year is coming up this Thursday and it’s gunna be HUGE. Like really big. Like the buzz is that Kanye is going to be there. He heard about the prizes, including the gift certificates to a plethora of awesome local dives and eateries, and he couldn’t resist. Apparently Kanye has a soft spot for pink flamingos and bread pudding. Now if celebrity proximity  and food doesn’t entice you, at least come and support your friends while they expose their most sacred vulnerabilities to the critical eye of the spectator. Join us in McGuire at 8:30.

April 25th, 2014 by Samantha Chemali

gac-146-callout-v1aWhat: Great American Cookout

Where: Annapolis

When: May 

Attending a Great American Cookout event will get you the know-how, but you’re going to need top of the line grill gear to accompany your skills. This year, the Great American Cookout will be hosting the BBQ Getaway Giveaway sweepstakes.  The giveaways are centered on America’s favorite grilling holidays: Memorial Day, Independence Day and Labor Day. The end-of-year winner will be the recipient of a BBQ Celebrity Bash in their backyard, complete with food, entertainment and an appearance by a celebrity barbecue personality. Holiday giveaways throughout the year will include a Big Green Egg cooker, plus products and grilling accessories from tour partners. It’s almost too good to believe!

1376469_657648934297971_1938143428_nFollowing their performance at our WLOY Coffeehouse, I had the chance to sit down with Nalani & Sarina, the dynamic, twinning duo who can hold their own in the music game. The extremely talented pair graced our ears with their singing abilities, along with each playing the guitar, piano and ukelele. They are a fun crowd to hang around and they certainly give a good interview. Be sure to listen to the whole interview below and check out their music!

April 24th, 2014 by Billy Dries

hqdefaultRachel Stoczko – Hozier – From Eden EP - 

This newly released EP from Irish artist, Hozier, has been on repeat since I discovered it last week. I first heard Hozier on Teen Wolf, judge me, with his work from his first EP, and his second certainly does not disappoint. I cannot stop listening to the hauntingly beautiful tones and intricate lyrics of all four songs off the new EP. Give it a listen and melo out.

Top 20 Tracks 4.20.14

April 24th, 2014 by Billy Dries

Jamie-xx-Girl-300x150This week we have the highly anticipated “Girl” topping our chart.

Also on our chart is another cut off of Mac DeMarco’s Salad Days, as well as tUnE-yArDs’ “Water Fountain” which received an extremely psychedelic music video this week (check it out here). And more important than all of that, check back every week for our updated Top 20!
