November 14th, 2016 by Cara Hullings

plrsflyerLooking for a rockin’ Thursday night? Well look no further! PLRLS and The Stents are coming to McGuire Hall this Thursday, the 17th, from 8-10pm and are sure to put on a killer show. WLOY will also be giving away tickets to Balance and Composure and Mac Miller during the show, so make sure you come and swipe in, Loyola students. Stick around during the show to win since Balance and Composure tickets will be given away at 9 after The Stents, and Mac Miller tickets will be given away at 10 after PLRLS.

Described as new wave/post punk rock, PLRLS’s will have you up and dancing with their fast rhythm and 80’s vibes. This local band has been playing their “colorful and angular” music since 2011 all over Baltimore. Inspired by the retro, PLRLS music conveys that image, especially their music videos, found here. You can check out all their music here and catch them live at 9pm in McGuire.

The Stents, another amazing Baltimore gem will be opening this Thursday at 8pm. This nacho loving garage rock band will set you up for a fun night full of fun jams. Inspired by bands like The Who, The Cynics and The Kinks, The Stents employ fuzzy guitar, heavy beats, harmonies, and even some harmonicas to create great songs to rock out to anywhere and anytime. You can find their music here and learn it all in time for Thursday!

Greyhounds Basketball Preview

November 14th, 2016 by Brendan Pierce

Sports Saturday

Another season of Greyhounds basketball is officially underway as both the men and women’s teams began their season this weekend. The men’s team suffered a hard fought loss to A-10 opponent Duquesne by a score of 65-60 on Friday. However, the women notched their first win of the season in blowout fashion over Lipscomb 74-30.

The men’s team was lead by senior big man, Jarred Jones and junior point guard Andre Walker. The Greyhound tandem each dropped 21 points, but it was not enough to prevail over a tough Dukes team. Junior Chancellor Barnard put up a strong effort on the defensive end as he had a team high 5 blocks. The Greyhounds got limited help off the bench as they only had a combined 3 bench points compared to Duquesne’s 23. The Greyhounds also had a difficult time from the free throw line as they shot 47% from the charity stripe. The men will look to bounce back in their home opener tonight at 7:30 against the Millersville Marauders. Read the rest of this entry »
