Concert Review: Modern Baseball @ Baltimore Soundstage (Baltimore, MD) & The Fillmore (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania)
Monday, July 4th, 2016 by Margaret Jokoh
Review by: Tara Howell
Right after MoBo surprise released The Perfect Cast EP, I had the chance to see them for the first time at my favorite Baltimore venue, Ottobar, in the fall of 2015. More than any other concert I’ve been to, it felt like a group therapy session. In a room full of strangers, I’ve never felt more connected. It was at this concert that I really, really realized not only how powerful music is, but how special this band really is. (more…)

All-American Rejects returned to headline Loyolapalooza 10 years after their first appearance on the campus. WLOY’s Matt Weitzel joined Lauren (GreyCom) and Georgia (Greyhound) for a chat with the band in the most echoey room they could possibly find. Enjoy!

Resident Metal Head, Matt Weitzel, was fortunate enough to get a two for one deal at the last stop on the first leg of I The Breather’s farewell tour, and got to chat with another hometown hero, Baltimore based Metal powerhouse, Fire In Elysium, as they were one of the opening acts for the night. Matt got the chance to discuss FIE’s upcoming album, the state of the Baltimore Music Scene, and the prospect of opening up for another Maryland Metal band, I The Breather, who have been able to live their dream for one of their last shows as a band, and what that means to them.

Kat and Rae of “Kat & Rae in the Midday” had the pleasure of sitting down and chatting with local artist, Ruut, prior to her fantastic performance here at Loyola. They got to learn about how she first she began to write music, where her career has taken her and how her experiences have shaped her music. Kat and Rae also got some cool behind the scenes stories about her awesome videos for her cover of Pearl Jam’s “Jeremy” and her original song,” Easy Road”, off her new album, Untold Stories.

Ryan Porter, the bassist from Psycho Killers (a Baltimore Talking Heads cover band), took some time with Kat and Rae to talk about their founding, upcoming Black Friday show and just how exactly they ended up with Thomas Dolby (yes, the “She Blinded Me With Science” guy) asking to join them on stage for a show. The band performed it’s second annual fundraising event at Baltimore Soundstage to gather donations for Toys For Tots the day after Thanksgiving. This year there was the bonus of Thomas Dolby sitting in!

Kat & Rae (of the infamous Kat & Rae Midday show) had a nice phone chat with Allen Stone about his upcoming show (11/11 make a wish!) at Baltimore Soundstage a few days ago. Allen survived their lightning round of questions and shared the experience of being an on-demand Uber driver, among the tasty tidbits. Is it the hats, or the hair that intrigues them more? You’ll have to listen in to find out. And ignore the digital whoops and bloops that our phone system made… sorry.
Check out the full interview:

Paul Janeway of Saint Paul and the Broken Bones sauntered on stage in box-toed shoes almost more sparkly than the Rams Head lights. As he opened with the first song I knew that he wasn’t going to put on any ordinary old show, what with his incredible voice and an extremely talented band that compliments it.
Closing my eyes, I felt like I was transported back in time to the 60s when soul music was revolutionary. But instead of Otis Redding, opening my eyes I found Paul Janeway, who looks like just a normal guy—not someone you’d expect to have the extraordinarily powerful voice he does. Turns out he was once just that: a normal guy who worked as an Alabama bank teller. Lucky for us, he met current bassist Jesse Phillips (who Rachel interviews here!) in 2012 and together they embarked on a musical journey with the goal of making music that worked with Janeway’s smooth, soulful voice.
