What Is The WLOY Staff Listening To This Week?

February 27th, 2014 by Billy Dries

3724697Leslie Weis – 5 Seconds of Summer – 
More accents and boybands!! Woohoo! This pop rock band, 5 Seconds of Summer, comprised of four adorable Aussies is pretty new to the scene and as well as millions of other girls all around the world, I’m obsessed. 5 Seconds of Summer began in December 2011 when Luke Hemmings, Michael Clifford and Calum Hood joined together and started posting videos of themselves performing covers of popular songs to YouTube. A little bit later they were joined by drummer Ashton Irwin, and the current 5 Seconds of Summer lineup came to be. Last February, 5 Seconds of Summer announced that they’d be the opening act on One Direction’s worldwide arena tour and hysteria among all teenage girls immediately ensued. The boys are now currently signed to Capitol Records and are working on their debut album. Their new single, She Looks So Perfect​, has just made me even more addicted and it’s starting to become unhealthy and kind of scaring me.

Yeezus in the Charm City

February 21st, 2014 by Kathleen McKeveny

Written by: Jeremy Stephenson

With his first solo tour in five years, you know Mr. West rolled his sleeves up to make his Baltimore fans remember why he is the icon he is today. First of all, this concert and tour is nothing like any other rap tour or any tour for that matter to date. A tremendous 35 song set list including tracks from his latest, and sixth album, Yeezus, and even his inaugural decade old album, The College Dropout definitely had any Ye fan walking away with a nice “did I just see that!?” grin after the show.

The show kicked off with the unveiling of a massive mountain in the back of the stage, which followed with Kanye’s twelve dancers who were dressed in fully nude pantyhose, and were incorporated throughout the show’s entirety.
