WLOY’s 12 Days Of Christmas Music

Wednesday, December 19th, 2018 by Erin McAvoy

It’s day six of WLOY’s 12 Days of Christmas Music and this one’s a double whammy!

Tara Howell, General Manager

“I have 2 because I can’t pick and I’m the worst. 

 My favorite traditional Christmas song is ‘Christmas Eve/Sarajevo 12/24’ by Trans-Siberian Orchestra.

I don’t care what anyone says – this song goes HARD. I always just think of it as a kind-of metal Christmas song, which I love. 

 My other favorite is ‘Christmas Eve/Pierceton Queen’ by Chase Huglin.

This song is so cute, and my lil emo heart lives for it. It’s not a traditional Christmas pick, but I feel like it exemplifies the season perfectly in the sound of the song. I just remember listening to this a lot in my car when I was driving last winter.”

Concert Review: Emarosa at Baltimore Soundstage

Sunday, December 9th, 2018 by Kaili McDonald

On Tuesday, November 27th 2018, five bands rolled up to the Baltimore Soundstage in Baltimore, MD to liven up a welcoming crowd. Arlington, the Faim, Devour the Day, Emarosa, and Hands Like Houses made for an interesting line-up for sure.

I’ve found that Soundstage always has amazing opening bands, and Arlington was no exception. In fact, I’m listening to them as I write. Anyways, the show started off with Arlington, a three-member band from southern California. The first thing that I noticed besides their incredibly full sound and high energy performance was that the lead singer, Tyler Benko, sounded like Alex Turner from the Artic Monkeys. Then I realized that this band had the sound that I wish the latest Artic Monkeys album had. Amazing. Arlington was definitely one of the best performances that I’d ever seen. They even played a cover of “Reptilia” by the Stokes, which the bassist Channing Peake took on the vocals. It was Peake’s birthday, and “Reptilia” is one of his favorite songs. I also have to give credit to drummer Grant Whitson. I honestly wish they could have played longer, as I would have loved to hear so much more! Arlington’s sound, stage presence, mastery of instruments, crowd reaction, and style were all around incredible, and I definitely recommend checking them out. (more…)

Hymn For Her at Starbucks 12/6

Monday, December 3rd, 2018 by Lindsey Zapata

This your last chance to join WLOY for a Coffeehouse Performance, until next semester, and believe me this band may be last, but in no way are they the least. Hymn for Her describes themselves on their Facebook as, “punksy folksy airstreamy country bluesy grassy waynesy lucy take you on a hayride to hellsy,” which in regular English means that they are of fun with a twist of a psychedelic vibe. The duo has been touring all over the world, and we are lucky to have them come to visit at Starbucks this Thursday, December 6th, from 8-10pm. Remember these performances are FREE, which is unthinkable with this caliber of talent. Please come relax with some coffee from Starbucks (who always stays open later for our Thursday performances) and enjoy this music and grab a WLOY Van Cookie while they last.

Out of Water eXperience–Thursday, Nov 29

Wednesday, November 28th, 2018 by Lindsey Zapata

If you have not seen The Out of Water eXperience once save the date–Thursday, Nov 29th. Femi the Drifish along with the other musicians that make of The Out of Water eXperience will be taking on McGuire, and giving to Loyola a little something we have been missing all along. As a Rage Against the Machine and Kendrick Lamar hybrid, The Out of Water eXperience offers WLOY something a little than what we typically have on stage. One of my favorite aspects of this group is that they do not hold back with their music, playing more light-hearted tunes to making important statements about social justice. If you want to have a spunkier Thursday night, come to McGuire with some friends and come to listen to The Out of Water eXperience.
