Earth People! The Triumphant Return of Dr. Octagon

June 26th, 2017 by The Professor

by Earl Crown, host of Crucial Cuts on WLOY

On June 4th 2017, Kool Keith (aka Dr. Octagon) came to Baltimore Soundstage with his hip-hop super-group, and reminded us why we loved Dr. Octagon in the first place. His 1996 album, Dr. Octagonecologyst, is considered by many to be among the most important albums of that decade and a must-own LP for any serious fan of the genre. With the help of producer and DJ Dan “The Automator” Nakamura, as well as world-class turntablist DJ Qbert, Octagon was able recreate the genius of his groundbreaking 1996 album on stage.

The Dr. Octagon tour features an all-star stage band, with a live drummer and bass player, along with two DJs, the aforementioned Dan the Automator and DJ Qbert. The set list for the Baltimore Soundstage show included many tracks from the Dr. Octagonecologyst album, including “3000”, “Earth People” and “Bear Witness”. The appreciative crowd got especially wild for “Blue Flowers,” a fan-favorite from the 1996 release. Read the rest of this entry »

Pretty Don amazing: Don Broco Live

May 11th, 2017 by Margaret Jokoh

The British rock band, Don Broco, has been around since 2008, but have just embarked on their first US tour. Aside from having the pleasure of interviewing the band, I had the opportunity of seeing them live at Baltimore Soundstage.

Anyone who knows Baltimore, knows that the music fans of the city are very hard to please, especially the pop punk scene, who have seen acts like Modern Baseball, All Time Low and many more jump off to headlining acts at major festivals and their own tours. And to be honest, Don Broco is definitely the odd ball out when looking at the bill. They are lined up with bands like: With Confidence, Against the Current and State Champs. Fortunately, there were a few fans there, but Don Broco definitely had a challenge ahead of them. Read the rest of this entry »

WLOY Coffeehouse: Black Rhinoceros

April 24th, 2017 by Cara Hullings

WLOY’s last event of the semester is here and we’re not sure how we feel about it. Of course we saved the best for last, but saying goodbye all our Thursday night fun is tragic. No matter how you’re feeling about the end of the semester though, Black Rhinoceros and openers, Divided Heaven are sure pick you up. Black Rhinocerous, an acoustic pop duo will be playing their relaxing, chill tunes on guitar and cello, which is the perfect music to cram to finals to. As self-proclaimed nerd rock, Black Rhinoceros will be sure to appreciate you studying to their music.

By combining Erin’s cello and vocal skills with Ahren’s guitar and vocal, Black Rhinoceros create complex melodies, harmonies and chord progressions in order to make some beautiful songs that you’ll want to listen to forever. Check out what is mean with their song, Gaius, which you can listen to here. Don’t miss it live though! This Thursday. Outside Starbucks. 8-10pm.

Explore Baltimore: The Food Market

April 21st, 2017 by Cara Hullings

What: The Food Market

Where: 1017 W 36th St.

When: Sun-Thurs, 5pm-11pm Fri & Sat, 5pm-12am

The Food Market loves to cook up some comfort food, but make it gourmet. Described as a place for foodies to feel their exotic side, this restaurant and its award-winning chef, Chad Gauss, combine regular ingredients with irregular and “unparalleled” techniques. Gauss, who has been sharing his love for cooking since the age of 14, adds a twist on classic foods. In the mood for something like pizza or chicken finger? Well try them twist with menu options like crispy lobster fingers or a duck confit flatbread.  But if you’re not feeling that adventurous, The Food Market still has the basics like the boring caesar salad or a warm lobster roll. Regardless, this amazing food as well as the industrial-modern vibe create a full, enjoyable dining experience for everyone.
