Coffeehouse 2/8 Bell’s Roar & QueenEarth

Tuesday, February 6th, 2018 by The Professor

WLOY & Spectrum present this weeks show featuring bell’s roar and Queen Earth. Join us Thursday night by Starbucks from 8-10pm for a great night of music!

Sean Desiree performs as “bell’s roar”: The name bell’s roar symbolizes the focus and attitude held in Sean Desiree’s solo project. It’s a reference to feminist writer bell hooks who speaks of intersectionality and solidarity in their work. Being a queer, gender nonconforming person of color Sean cannot isolate forms of oppression. The roar represents the fight to not be silent and to use their creative voice to stop ongoing domination.

Missy Smith aka “QueenEarth” is a Loyola (and WLOY) graduate who has been performing solo and with bands for years. QueenEarth is a singer/songwriter and creative professional. In addition to performing her music, she has combined her passions to create courses, programs, and events that encourage social justice and arts education. She finds the greatest joy when she can bring her experience together for education, music, and creativity.

Special Jim Forrester Tribute show

Monday, January 22nd, 2018 by The Professor

“The Reverend” Jim Forrester (1974-2017) was an influential musician and piercing artist who had a positive impact on Baltimore’s rock scene for over 20 years. Sadly, Jim’s life was cut tragically short when he was murdered during an attempted robbery on the evening of December 18th, 2017, on Eastern Avenue.

The Rev played bass and contributed to the songwriting in a number of projects, including Sixty Watt Shaman, Angels of Meth, Foghound, and Serpents of Secrecy.  On Monday, January 15th, 2018, as a special epsiode of Studio Seizure, Loyola Radio broadcasted an hour-long tribute to Reverend Jim and his music.  The special was hosted by Earl Crown from Crucial Cuts, and featured guest Chuck Dukehart, a lifelong friend and bandmate of Forrester.

The Reverend Jim Forrester was known and beloved throughout the various subcultures within the Baltimore music scene as a genuinely positive force, a man of kindness and integrity. WLOY Loyola Radio would like to express our condolences to his family and friends, and to remember Jim’s life and accomplishments in this hour-long tribute.

Listen to a special Studio Seizure show tonight 7-8pm and look for it online here tomorrow.

Late Night 1/25: Nalani & Sarina and The Wldlfe!

Saturday, January 20th, 2018 by The Professor

What a show this week! Not only the return of ever-popular Nalani & Sarina, but this time they’re bringing the full band! AND we’re bringing in serious up-and-coming-you’ll-be-bragging-you-saw-them-here-first talent from Indianapolis THE WLDLFE! Yep, either band could lay down a fantastic show for 2 hours but we know you need more stimulation so we’re putting 2 bands up in McGuire Hall just for you. And, as always, for FREE.

Loyola students already know Nalani & Sarina from their many performances as a duo on campus, but have never seen them here with the full band. Their new single “Young & Inexperienced” has been getting buzz in Billboard and even got them into the NY Post. These two audacious young artists, from west-central New Jersey, have developed a distinctive blend of traditionalist soul-rock and modern pop likely to keep their faces in the spotlight for years to come. Legendary music critic/Sirius radio host Dave Marsh called their EP, Scattered World, “some of the best music being made”, and fans, critics and taste-makers have echoed his praise.

The Wldlfe hail from Indianapolis and are about to drop their own new single (maybe you’ll here it in McGuire!) As an indie-alternative/pop band out of Indianapolis, IN they burst into the scene on March 3rd, 2016 when they released their debut EP entitled “NEW”. Since their debut, THE WLDLFE have released two EPs (NEW and I.L.Y) and one single (Text Me?). They have spent the last year performing across the United States and are currently home in Indiana working on their next project due out in April but they’re making a short run of shows including this one!

Vote WLOY & Christmas Parade 10Best!!!

Wednesday, November 8th, 2017 by The Professor

Isn’t this amazing?! USA Today is trying to pick the 10 Best Holiday Parades in the country and one of the initial 20 they picked was the Mayor’s Annual Christmas Parade in Hampden!! It’s been going for 44 years (with only 1 shut down for snow) and WLOY has been a part of the parade for the last 8 years. We build a float on and around the station van and send our crew of WLOY elves out with bags of candy canes, shirts, and toys for kids along the route. With over 20,000 people on the street sides it’s no wonder we gave out over 3500 candy canes last year!!! When we found out that the parade was in the top 20 for this competition, we were excited to support it and tell you to vote. When we saw the featured picture seen by millions on the USA Today 10Best website was of THE WLOY FLOAT well… we kinda lost our minds. That’s Hillary Bowman ’14 up there throwing stuffed plush snowballs to the crowd on top of the WLOY van and inside the Merry Christmas Hon float. WOW! So, what can you do, other than just admire the fame we are now finding for Hillary? YOU can vote. And vote again. Right up until the day after the parade you can vote and repeat, and repeat… GO TO THIS LINKhttp://bit.ly/Vote4Baltimore – Share it with your friends and family, your coworkers, your pets, anyone that can click a link and vote. Vote often. THANKS!

PLRLS & The Hall Monitors 11/9 McGuire Hall

Wednesday, November 8th, 2017 by The Professor

This Thursday night marks the return of the amazing PLRLS to McGuire Hall. With a blend of punk, new wave, and a bit of sass, they’ll keep you jumping all show. From “Rose Garden” to “Look at the Nerds” there’s a bit of Talking Heads, a bit of Devo, a dash of Joe Jackson and some pop punk thrown in. As a bonus we’ll also have the great classic garage rock sounds of The Hall Monitors to keep you moving for another hour! The Hall Monitors bring us straight up fuzzed out classic 60s garage rock sounds. Everything they play should be on a slightly scratchy 45rpm 7″ record in every jukebox. Check out “She’s My Methodone” on their Bandcamp page for a sample of their style.

Check out the newest album from PLRLS on their website, or the single “Oh What a World” (aka “Worldstar”) below. And don’t forget to join us in McGuire Hall from 8-10pm on Thursday November 9th!

Voodoo Pharmacology Coffeehouse 11/2

Wednesday, November 1st, 2017 by Lindsey Zapata

Voodoo Pharmacology will be performing at our Coffeehouse this Thursday from 8-10pm! As the weather gets colder, the tunes just keep on getting cooler. Stop on by and sip a coffee from Starbucks, while you listen to a free performance from this amazing band. Their music gives off a combination of rock, psychedelic, and americana creating this completely unique sound. They have a lot to say, and don’t hold back from some atypical subject matter, but their theatrical live performance will blow you away. They performed at Artscape and were able to enrapture the audience there, so there is no doubt they’ll move you too! Come by this Thursday from 8-10pm to see what the hype surrounding Voodoo Pharmacology is all about!
Check out their Bandcamp page here.
