St Paul & The Broken Bones Live 9/12/15

September 16th, 2015 by The Professor

Words & Photos by Katie Kazmierski ’18

saintpaul_rhl6 Paul Janeway of Saint Paul and the Broken Bones sauntered on stage in box-toed shoes almost more sparkly than the Rams Head lights. As he opened with the first song I knew that he wasn’t going to put on any ordinary old show, what with his incredible voice and an extremely talented band that compliments it.

Closing my eyes, I felt like I was transported back in time to the 60s when soul music was revolutionary. But instead of Otis Redding, opening my eyes I found Paul Janeway, who looks like just a normal guy—not someone you’d expect to have the extraordinarily powerful voice he does. Turns out he was once just that: a normal guy who worked as an Alabama bank teller. Lucky for us, he met current bassist Jesse Phillips (who Rachel interviews here!) in 2012 and together they embarked on a musical journey with the goal of making music that worked with Janeway’s smooth, soulful voice.

Join us in McGuire Hall, THIS Thursday from 8-10pm for a killer FREE show!  Wing Dam, hailing from Baltimore, and Vundabar, coming all the way from Boston, are perform for free in McGuire Hall on September 17! Both bands possess a beachy, fuzzy, electronic rock sound that is enticing and addicting.

Wing Dam is Sara Autrey, Austin Tally and Abram Sanders, a coed group, possessing a punk 90’s vibe. Check out my personal favorite “House Boat”— this song shifts from beachy to rock throughout—listen before the show!

Vundabar, created by two cool guys, Branden Hagen and Drew McDonald have the classic fuzziness coming through their guitar in songs like “Gawk”. Both of these bands have excellent stage presence, stop by McGuire and enjoy an amazing FREE show with Wing Dam and Vundabar! Read the rest of this entry »

WLOY Open Mic Night

September 10th, 2015 by Allison Langley

Open Mic Night Logo On a rainy day such as this all you want to do is sit down with your hands wrapped around a hot WLOY mug and listen to some tunes. Fortunately, I know the perfect place for you to do this: the 3rd Floor Reading Room in the student center. Come by for WLOY’s, Open Mic Night, the first WLOY event of the school year. Bring your guitars, banjos, or mandolins to perform a cozy set or rock on. Voices are also much appreciated and encouraged; recite your favorite slam poetry or an original song. I am sure there will be some awesome talent coming out of the wood works tonight. If you prefer to rest your vocal chords, well that is just fine too; enjoy sit down in a coffee house setting with a warm beverage. But, don’t be shy! We would love to hear what you have to share with the friends in the Loyola community!
