An Evening with Tegan & Sara

January 29th, 2013 by Christa Constantine

50ffdc63f1c3c.preview-300A flat tire, three broken brake lines, and four hours of traffic – the Universe really didn’t want me, an avid Tegan & Sara fan, to attend their concert in Richmond this weekend. Somehow, I made it to the National at seven ‘o’ clock on the nose – right when the doors opened – in time to purchase a t-shirt, order a gin and tonic, and sit up in the seats with all of the other L.o.T.’s – Lesbians Over Twenty-One.

It was my second time seeing the band live in concert, and the audience demographic hasn’t changed much: lesbians with half-shaved heads, lesbians with labret piercings, a random dad and his ten-year-old son, lesbians wearing visors, and hipsters in plaid. I’m all-too-aware that, after only 122 words, the word “lesbian” appears five times. It’s true, the twins have a reputation for attracting a certain crowd, but it only serves to create an incredibly tight-knit community of mutual worshippers and makes the shows all the more enjoyable.

Thursday: Late Night with Fractal Cat and Brooks Long

January 28th, 2013 by Jordan Hernandez


Make sure to swing by McGuire Hall this Thursday, January 31 at 9 p.m. to catch the ONLY late night event this semester. The event will feature music from Fractal Cat and Brooks Long. Fractal Cat is a six-piece rock ensemble hailing from Baltimore who’s style as been described as “musically uplifting” with “playfully mystical lyrics”. Brooks Long is a singer/ song writer from the Baltimore/DC area who uses a blend of old school rhythm and blues with 21st century rock to create a style all his own.

We will also be selling our new PURPLE (color of royalty) WLOY t-shirts at the event along with conducting a free raffle that will give the winner FREE tickets to the band Toro y Moi.

Oh and did I mention that in addition to being a FREE concert there will also be FREE refreshments? Well if you’re not sold on all this freedom yet I suggest you get out of America because clearly you missed the memo. Be sure not to miss it!

“Word on the Street” Gets More Press

January 8th, 2013 by The Professor

WOTS Issue 1We were pretty excited when the paper we support “Word on the Street” got a couple of recent mentions in the local press.  We were more excited when Marc Steiner interviewed members of the paper on his show on WEAA.  Now the paper has front page coverage in the Baltimore Sun!  Rumor has it that NBC is interested as well!  This is a great start to a new year!  You can support Word on the Street too!
