Lavender & The Holy Circle at Blackbox 2/7

Monday, February 4th, 2019 by Erin McAvoy

We are so very excited to announce our very first Thursday night concert at the Blackbox Theater this Thursday featuring the bands Lavender and The Holy Circle! Lavender is a Washington D.C. based indie pop band who’s style can be compared to popular bands like The 1975 and Two Door Cinema Club.  The band consists of members Emily Carlson (vocals), Alli Vega (guitar), Trent Burns (also guitar), and Matt Wright (drums). They have an unforgettable and irresistible sound you are sure to not only feel familiar with but also love. The Holy Circle is a Baltimore based band consisting of members Erica Burgner-Hannum (vocals), Terence Hannum (synths) and Nathan Jurgenson (drums). Their sound is described as a “dreamy, haunting synthpop”, with elements of R&B and shoegaze. It’s definitely going to be something totally new to most of you, so this would be a great chance to come expand your musical horizons! We hope to see you there, this Thursday from 8-10pm, for our first (free) concert at the Blackbox Theater!

WLOY’s 12 Days Of Christmas Music

Saturday, December 22nd, 2018 by Erin McAvoy

Five more days people!  Here’s day nine of WLOY’S 12 Days of Christmas Music:

John Devecka, Operations Manager

“I’m torn because it depends on the mood, but all of these are necessary for me:

Merry Christmas Baby – Otis Redding (the man could sing a Chinese menu and make it kill

Father Christmas – The Kinks (snarky working-class rock classic)

Christmas in Hollis – Run-DMC (If you don’t enjoy this, re-evaluate everything)

I also just realized they came out in 1967, 1977, 1987… now I have to find a decent 1997 release to expand my horizons

They should all be played by everyone”
