Welcome Back Free Show with NEMES 1/21

Thursday, January 7th, 2016 by The Professor

Nemes-Promo-Grid 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.

Check out “I Carry Your Heart” on Bandcamp

Fight Hunger!

Monday, November 23rd, 2015 by Allison Langley

fight hungerLets all #fighthunger!

With the holiday and cold weather quickly approaching it is important that we take the time to think of others who are less fortunate. Fight Hunger is a national campaign aimed to aide in providing food for those who are in dire need. It is an excellent and creative campaign! The idea is to film one big fight sequence from Austin to Philadelphia. What a cool way to promote such an important cause! By the way, one of those stops is Baltimore! Check out their go fund me page here, and donate! They are also accepting canned goods! So raid your cupboards or hit the grocery store and then drop it all off at the WLOY station by December 14th! We are looking forward to seeing a huge pile! They also accept clothing!

The Debate of the Decade

Saturday, November 14th, 2015 by Brendan Pierce

Sports SaturdayShould college athletes get paid?

It is such a simple question, but the answer is a lot more complex then yes or no.

Paying college athletes is an extremely complicated scenario because there are so many sports, schools, and conferences that distributing the money equally would be a nightmare.

However, I think that the resolution to this matter is fairly simple.

College athletics is a business and it comes down to which sports make the most amount of money for the NCAA.
