Tuesday, April 18th, 2017 by Cara Hullings

Don’t miss your last chance to show you skills off to Loyola! This Thursday WLOY will be having our last open mic night of the semester outside Starbucks from 8-10pm. Bring your instrument and your friends to perform your favorite songs, or maybe even your own music. Not musically inclined? Don’t fear! You can still come support your fellow Loyola musicians, perform some stand up for comic relief, or read some poetry to mellow out the mood. So pick your poison, no matter what talent it is, but don’t miss the last open mic night because that’s one poison you won’t back from!

He enjoys writing songs that tell a good story, so don’t miss the stories and the sounds of Matt Hutchison this Thursday!

Starbucks will be staying open for the length of the Coffeehouse and will be having drink specials like $3 Frappiccinos. Grab yourself a cup of joe or a tasty frap and enjoy the show!

Studio Seizure: Stacked Like Pancakes

Monday, February 13th, 2017 by The Professor

Tonight 7-8pm, we hand the studio over to the funky madmen of Stacked Like Pancakes!  Fresh off their tour with Reel Big Fish and sporting all sorts of new stories, we’re going to let them spin their favorite tunes and dish on some good road stories.

They played our fundraiser for The Book Thing last year and blew us all away with their live energy! ”Reinvigorating the sounds of classic ska, Stacked Like Pancakes (SLP) piles on boisterous horns and punk rock attitude to create high energy music synthesizing the vibes of Reel Big Fish, twenty one pilots, Foo Fighters, Paramore, Cage the Elephant, and an untraceable amount of other artists and genres. Since 2007, SLP has shared the stage with national and international acts, toured on the Vans Warped Tour, headlined their own self-booked tours, released their latest crowd-funded 15-track monster-album THIS IS US in December 2015, and in 2016 went on the road with Reel Big Fish for a month-long nation-wide syrupy tour.
