Eliza and Johnny stopped by WLOY on Thursday, January 30th, for an interview on Kat and Rae in the Morning and a coffeehouse that evening. Kat and I were graced with an in studio performance, which included their songs Blue and Down By The Sea. The siblings are members of local band, Eliza Doering and the Penny Black. Kat and I got some insight to their start as a band and what they’re working on now. Their fun in studio performance, along with their full interview can be found below.

Where: For McHenry
This star-shaped brick fort is famous for its role in the War of 1812. The national monument, which staved off a British invasion, later inspired Francis Scott Key to pen a poem, “Defence of Fort McHenry” — the words of which later served as the lyrics to his “Star-Spangled Banner.”

I believe it is safe to say Wendel Patrick is a man of science. Now, this does not imply his musicianship is anything less than artful, or the music less soulful, or the sound at all mechanical. Rather, it is that Wendel’s moment of catharsis lives within an arrangement of mathematical precision. Like a mad-scientist in his laboratory, he is an alchemist of sound, meticulously blending consonance and dissonance as if they were volatile fluids finding solace in embrace. This Thursday night Wendel Patrick will be headlining WLOYs Late Night Concert Event, rockin’ the house with tracks from his recent four album release. If you hadn’t yet put the clues together, Wendel Patrick is Loyola own former professor of music, Kevin Gift! Haven’t heard any of his music? Well, get experienced. Show starts 9pm, be sure to bring your hazmat suit.

The WLOY staff went out to brunch on Sunday, and if you ask anyone on staff I think we can all agree how great this meal was. Whether for brunch or for dinner, you cannot go wrong with anything on the menu. From the atmosphere of the restaurant to the food, it is perfection. Some of our favorites were the French Toast Dippers, the Amish Pretzels and the Croque Madame. Brunch may just be the most important meal of the day!

Released December 10, Donald Glover changed the whole entire game with his sophomore release. Shying away from the traditional sense of album development, he relied solely on the internet to create a buzz and the eventual explosion of excitement for his album. “Because The Internet” has aspects of traditional hip-hop, but he branches out by including his skills as a writer to give each song it’s own personality. So, as a fan of the arts in general, I feel that Glover changed the way albums should be created and everyone, I mean EVERYONE should go out and listen to this fine piece of aural cinema.
