February 2nd, 2016 by Margaret Jokoh

a0894428352_10Nathaniel Bellows: The Old Illusions

Release: June 2, 2015

Rate: 9/10

Hailing from Boston, Massachusett, Nathaniel Bellows releases his first EP The Old Illusions, is definitely quite an album to be introduced to him by. The musician, visual artist and writer has music akin to folk stars, Mumford and Sons and Hudson Taylor. The Old Illusions is simply a man and his guitar; combining Bellows’ haunting voice akin (again) to the baritone base of Marcus Mumford, and his introspective, and colorful lyrics aid in the immense quality of this record.

Super Bowl 50 Preview

February 1st, 2016 by Brendan Pierce

Sports Saturday

The 50th edition of the world’s most popular sporting event will take place in Santa Clara, California at Levi’s Stadium on February 7th. The game will feature two teams with completely different identities.

The Carolina Panthers had the best record in the NFL this season going 17-1, earning the #1 seed in the NFC. They led the NFL in total points thanks to former Heisman Trophy winner, Cam Newton. Many people counted the Panthers out of playoff contention when Newton’s number one target, Kelvin Benjamin, went down with a knee injury before the season started. However, that injury did not deter the Panthers at all. Newton responded with an MVP caliber season and Carolina’s second appearance in the Super Bowl in team history.

Stephanie Berlanga: The way things go 

Release Date: December 29, 2011 

Rate: 7/10 

Stephanie Berlanga’s The way things go, is definitely a step in the right direction for this vocal powerhouse. Described, by many as playing “acoustic pop music” Berlanga’s EP definitely shows off her wide range and powerful vocals, the production on the album is amazing especially for someone who is an up and coming artist. The album gives a small insight into what Berlanga can do; she mixes various different genres, including some country, pop, acoustic, and some alternative rock.  Read the rest of this entry »

RedStar What: Red Star Bar & Grill

Where: 906 South Wolfe Street

When: Hours

Head down to Fells Point to cozy up in this warm space for a great meal!

When in Baltimore, start your meal off by scooping a grilled pita into a hearty bowl of Red Star’s crab dip! Or keep it simple with an appetizing Wisconsin Cheese Plate, orrr there are plenty of other options! Enjoy a Mushroom Pizza with caramelized mushrooms and onions, or grab hold of a scrumptious Bistro Steak Sandwich, made with grilled, coffee marinated beef along side avocados! I think though when in a pub, you should do a classic Fish n’ Chips, you just cannot go wrong with beer-battered Cod and tar tar sauce. You just can’t.

Red Star Bar & Grill offers you a large variety of delectable dishes with a great ambiance for you and your friends to chat over! Click here for the full menu!
