On March 2nd, 2016 a Baltimore institution burned. The Book Thing, a free book store serving the city for more than 15 years, suffered a massive fire that destroyed more than 200,000 books and the roof of the building. Russell has started to rebuild and WLOY is going to help. After our initial donation of $2,000, we let him know we wanted to do more. Working with the great people at Friends Records and Peabody Heights Brewing Company, we have put together an amazing festival to raise more money! An incredible collection of local bands large and small have jumped in to help, food vendors signed on, and we are ready to blow everyone away! Join us Saturday May 28 from noon-8pm while we fill 2 stages with bands, and you with food and beverage, all to help The Book Thing!

Welcome back to campus from WLOY and Late Night Loyola! Our first FREE CONCERT of the semester will be 8-10pm in McGuire Hall, Thursday January 21st featuring NEMES from Boston! How good are they? How about: “One of the top 5 unsigned bands in the country” -Alternative Press.
Nemes (pronounced knee•miss) has made their mark on the Boston and larger New England music scene by playing everywhere from subway stations to highly-revered rock venues. Led by duel-frontmen Dave Anthony and Josh Knowles, the band showcases a true metamorphosis of sound, featuring warm, layered harmonies and one-of-a-kind violin shredding Vanyaland describes as “fiddle-action glory.” These components are delicately layered across captivating original songs to form what Under the Gun Review calls “some of the most engaging music we’ve heard,” garnering shout-outs from national and international acts such as Alt-J and Nirvana.
Released in the fall of 2015, their debut studio full-length album, “I Carry Your Heart,” has lifted the band from the subway stations of Boston to larger stages around the region, performing as support for acts such as X Ambassadors and Guster. The album was co-produced and mixed by Rick Kwan (Jim James, My Morning Jacket) and funded by a combination of busking, gigging, and crowd-funding. The 11-track record is an exploration of four minds working to create a resonant, cathartic listening experience.
