We were pretty excited when the paper we support “Word on the Street” got a couple of recent mentions in the local press. We were more excited when Marc Steiner interviewed members of the paper on his show on WEAA. Now the paper has front page coverage in the Baltimore Sun! Rumor has it that NBC is interested as well! This is a great start to a new year! You can support Word on the Street too!

Nothing like some bonus press for the work we do. After a mention in the Baltimore Sun and front page coverage in the great DC street paper Street Sense, we follow it up with a piece in Loyola Magazine. It’s always good to let the rest of the world know we do more than just spin some records now and then!

Alex successfully defends her title at Hampdenfest 2012 by speed eating her way through an innocent piece of Cafe Hon’s amazing bread pudding, complete with caramel sauce and whipped cream. She toyed with the other competitors to make them feel like they had a chance and then crushed their hopes like they were little bugs. All hail Filiohno! And keep away when she’s hungry!

Silopanna Festival was this weekend, so two amazing WLOY volunteers – Tenley, our photographer, and Brennan, our field reporter – and I took the trip to Annapolis to check out the set. The festival had a sort of mature feel to it; most of the attendees were older, and many were hippies. As we walked around, we took note of the atmosphere, highlighted by a giant lumberjack statue at the front of the fairground, public cornhole games, and Bud Light Limes.
We all know the headliners – CAKE, Citizen Cope, G. Love & Special Sauce – but what we were really looking forward to was the local acts. However, being three different people, we fittingly formulated three different accounts of the day, translated below.
Most Anticipated: Sweet Leda. They played at Loyola back in the spring as part of WLOY’s Thursday night concert series, and I was looking for something even fuller and more fun than what they had to offer last semester. And, with easier access to booze, I anticipated some awkward onstage banter as well.

A great night for all. We opened with Caleb Stine, great local songwriter with a deep roots vibe, and killer guitar chops. Caleb was then joined by great local rapper Saleem (without his Music Lovers band), with whom he had created an album of rap/roots music. Then Saleem was joined by local producer/singer/beat wizard Wendel Patrick (aka mild-mannered Professor Kevin Gift) for a round of hip-hop and jazz-infused electronic fun.
