Rocky Horror Picture Show On The Quad! 10/26 8pm

Wednesday, October 25th, 2017 by Lindsey Zapata

WLOY will be presenting Rocky Horror Picture Show once again! Come to the Quad (or McGuire Hall if the weather is bad) and be transported into this strange, but energizing movie. The movie is so crazy that imdb.com could not provide more of an summary than “a couple has a breakdown in an isolated area.” And if you ever been alone with someone for an extended amount of time, you know exactly how wild things can get. The production is meant to be a satire on both science fiction and horror movies, which yields an unexplainable combination as gender play and madness take their toll. There are no words that can do this production justice and for that reason I suggest you come check it out for yourself. We’ll be giving the event the WLOY touch and be offering giveaways to the best costumes! So stop by the Quad on Thursday from 8-10pm.  If you know the movie, or want to pretend you did all along, feel free to come in costume and act along, or read up on the audience responses. Participation is highly encouraged!

Join WLOY in Feeding the Homeless

Wednesday, August 2nd, 2017 by The Professor

It’s that time of year again! Our annual BBQ for the homeless and needy in Baltimore is coming up August 5th. In past years we have fed more than 1,000 people at the BBQ and this year it’s looking just as big. Join us and more than 30 partner organizations as we grill and serve, distribute clothing and toiletries and entertain our great guests. St. Vincent de Paul church has once again donated their lovely park space for this year and we’ve got Shorty (Shorty’s Bootleg BBQ) bringing his big tow grill to add to the cooking power. You can donate in advance, or show up on Saturday to drop off items. We’ll be there setting up at 9am and food service starts at 11. We usually run until 3-4pm or we run out of thousands of hamburgers and hot dogs. It’s a great cause and it will change your life to see the true need in Baltimore. Join WLOY alumni and current staff for a fun day of service! More info is available on the Facebook Event page.
