Chet Faker – A Golden Show

Tuesday, September 30th, 2014 by Alex Fili

Show Date: 9/10/14

Rating: 9/10

“You gotta know, I’m feeling love…” the repeated lyrics from Chet Fakers single, ‘Gold’, accurately describe how I feel about the Melbourne, Australia native and his self-produced music making it onto the charts. The relaxed twenty-three year old, Nicholas James Murphy, goes by the stage name of Chet Faker. As there is already an Australian musician by the name of Nick Murphy, he created this stage name in an ode to inspiring jazz musician Chet Baker. Faker took on the name when he uploaded his first cover of Blackstreet’s “No Diggity” in 2011.

The Kooks Go In A New Direction For Their Fourth Studio Album

Wednesday, September 17th, 2014 by Lauren Puleo

Listen_The_Kooks_cover The Kooks: Listen

Release Date: 9/8/14

Rating: 8/10

Well, well, well, it looks like the Kooks are gettin’ kind of funky here. Listen has been described as having some ska and even hip-hop influences from this traditionally indie rock band from Britain. This is such a deviation from their norm that if Luke Prichard didn’t have such a unique voice, this album wouldn’t even be recognizable as the Kooks. Because of that, this newest release rubs some people the wrong way, but personally I can dig it. (more…)

The Baltimore LED Art Billboard

Tuesday, July 29th, 2014 by The Professor

LED Art Billboard It began as a vision for Will Shanklin 8 years ago. At Artscape 2014 it was officially unveiled. This amazing structure is providing a much needed relief from the usual billboards crowding our streets and is creating visibility for a huge collection of artists in the region FOR FREE. Will Shanklin, the artist and visionary behind the billboard’s development and operation sat down for a chat with me right before the official launch of the billboard at Artscape 2014. He shared his idea for the billboard, it’s future and how it can impact art and Baltimore in a positive way. (more…)

Honfest 2014: We did it!

Thursday, June 19th, 2014 by The Professor

Honfest 2014 Hon Shirt It’s all over but the editing… WLOY hosted 15 amazing musical acts over 2 days on the first-ever WLOY STAGE at Honfest this year!  We had a blast, made a ton of friends, introduced a lot of people to new artists and generally enjoyed the hell out of the weekend.  The weather might well have been the best at any Honfest ever, save for a teensy bit of wind which made us attach the stage to an i-beam, and the crowds were great.  We had a lot of staff show up to help run the tents, despite it being summer and them living far away.  Alumni fairly came out of the woodwork all weekend long, stopping by to say hi, help man the tent and run the stage and even a couple of performers.
