We sent Phil and Brandon to Sweetlife Festival at Merriweather Post Pavilion to shoot some photos and check out some bands. It’s fair to say they enjoyed the shows, meeting and interviewing some great acts and enjoying a very cool festival. From a wide variety of food vendors to green power companies, the whole vibe was green, friendly and fun. Brandon covered Day 1, so Phil does Day 2: (more…)

The President’s Cup 2015 All Star Game took place April 18th inside Oriole Park at Camden Yards. WLOY’s live play by play team of Justin Thomas ’15, Bobby Trosset ’16 and Brendan Peirce ’17 called the game and even had a sit down chat with Baltimore City Council President Jack Young in between the 3rd and 4th innings. We had a problem with our recording at the startup so you’ll be joining the game already in progress for the second inning. The complete audio is below, enjoy!
The President’s Cup aims to unite Baltimore’s youth by using baseball to bring together groups of high school students from different backgrounds that normally would not compete with one another. Practice began Saturday, April 4 the newly renovated Johns Hopkins baseball field with 25 players on each team composed of both public and private schools. The President’s Cup also represents everything Council President’s ongoing P.L.A.Y. (Productive Lives, Active Youth) campaign stands for. P.L.A.Y. provides Baltimore’s youth with a wide range of opportunities to strengthen their self-confidence, develop leadership skills, learn from positive role models, and be rewarded athletically for their academic achievements. P.L.A.Y. encourages them to thrive academically, socially and emotionally.

What: 17th Annual Kinetic Sculpture Race
Where: American Visionary Art Museum
When: Saturday, May 2nd, 2015// All day (Race kicks off at 10:00 am)
The American Visionary Art Museum is holding its 17th Annual Kinetic Sculpture Race this Saturday, May 2nd. If you haven’t been to the Kinetic Sculpture Race before, don’t know what a Kinetic Sculpture is, or maybe don’t even know what kinetic means, now is your chance to get in on the action and find out! These creative, functional, human-run sculptures are beautifully made to conquer 15 miles of rocky roads, massive mud-pits, the depths of “quick” sand, and treacherous water crossings! Some sculptures are small, simple, and questionably safe, while others can be over 50-feet long, aesthetically phenomenal, and build by lunatic engineers who are hungry for victory in their beautiful moving sculptures. All of the sculptures are 100% human-built and human-powered works of art. Get a great view of the race from various places around the city; to name just a few: Atop Federal Hill, the Korean War Memorial Park in Canton, and Patterson Park. No matter where you are Baltimore, you won’t want to miss this crazy, kooky, Kinetic Sculpture Race. Find out more about the race and the American Visionary Art Museum here!

Don’t look now, but the New York Mets seem to be back in their “Amazin'” form for the first time in ages.
As the Mets prepare to start the Subway Series against their Bronx rivals, the New York Yankees, they find themselves at the top of the MLB with a 13-3 record, while also riding the momentum of an 11-game win streak.
They’re finally in a position to take New York and all of the major leagues by storm, but just how Amazin’ are these Mets?
Just going by the numbers, you have to be impressed with this team. Their 11-game win streak is the longest they’ve been on since 1986, when they also started 2-3 before the streak started.
They also accomplished these win totals at the start of the season with a win streak in 1969.
The Mets won the World Series both of those years. (more…)

Spring has finally arrived here in Baltimore, and that means lemon-stick season has, too! A Baltimore tradition since its first appearance in Charm City in 1911, the lemon stick makes its annual debut at the Mount Vernon FlowerMart. The ingredients are quite simple, really. All you need is a peppermint stick and a lemon. As you suck on the peppermint stick, you’ll taste the perfect combination of sweet and sour. Of course, you could make your own lemon stick on any given day, but there’s something about kicking off the season with a lemon stick from the FlowerMart that makes Spring in Baltimore that much sweeter! You know what they say, “When life give you lemons,” grab a peppermint stick and treat yourself to a taste of Charm City! Learn more about the lemon stick here!

What: Baltimore’s CityLit Project
Where: 400 Cathedral St. Baltimore, MD 21201
When: May 2nd, 2015// 10:00 am- 5:00 pm
It all started over a few drinks and a simple question: “If you could do an anthology that covered an album, what would it be?” And then came the Baltimore CityLit Project, “Clash by Night“, a poetic anthology, developed by Gregg Wilhelm and Gerry LaFemina, based on English punk band, The Clash, and their renowned album, London Calling. The duo found a connection with the album that many other’s shared, and now they’ve formed a new form of art revolving around it! Many poets came together to create poems that are inspired by the album, and on May 2nd, they want to share their work with you! If you have a similar love for poems, sonnets, The Clash, or even just getting out of the house for the day, you won’t want to pass up the CityLit Project! Learn more here!
