January Madness?

January 20th, 2016 by Brendan Pierce

Sports Saturday

It’s not even March yet and we are already seeing our fair share of upsets in college basketball. In fact, this is the first time that five No. 1 teams have lost before February since 1949. The latest No. 1 team to go down was Oklahoma on Monday night as they fell to No. 19 Iowa State, 82-77, at the Hilton Coliseum. Maybe there is something going around in the water in Iowa because this is the third No. 1 team to lose in the state this season. Northern Iowa previously defeated North Carolina and Iowa got the best of Michigan State when these teams squared off earlier in the season.  Read the rest of this entry »

Welcome Back Free Show with NEMES 1/21

January 7th, 2016 by The Professor

Nemes-Promo-Grid Welcome back to campus from WLOY and Late Night Loyola! Our first FREE CONCERT of the semester will be 8-10pm in McGuire Hall, Thursday January 21st featuring NEMES from Boston! How good are they? How about: “One of the top 5 unsigned bands in the country” -Alternative Press.

Nemes (pronounced knee•miss) has made their mark on the Boston and larger New England music scene by playing everywhere from subway stations to highly-revered rock venues. Led by duel-frontmen Dave Anthony and Josh Knowles, the band showcases a true metamorphosis of sound, featuring warm, layered harmonies and one-of-a-kind violin shredding Vanyaland describes as “fiddle-action glory.” These components are delicately layered across captivating original songs to form what Under the Gun Review calls “some of the most engaging music we’ve heard,” garnering shout-outs from national and international acts such as Alt-J and Nirvana.

Released in the fall of 2015, their debut studio full-length album, “I Carry Your Heart,” has lifted the band from the subway stations of Boston to larger stages around the region, performing as support for acts such as X Ambassadors and Guster. The album was co-produced and mixed by Rick Kwan (Jim James, My Morning Jacket) and funded by a combination of busking, gigging, and crowd-funding. The 11-track record is an exploration of four minds working to create a resonant, cathartic listening experience.

Check out “I Carry Your Heart” on Bandcamp

Bracocina What: Barcocina

Where: Fells Point

When: Click here for hours

 

Barcocinaaaaa, everyone needs to get down to Fells Point to enjoy some delicious, amazing, and tantalizing modern Mexican cuisine! I had the pleasure of dining in for a sunny brunch. Seriously though, so sunny. The windows surrounding the restaurant give you a wonderful view of the harbor and Fells Point, while enjoying a beautiful sun-shining day.

To accompany this view, there are savory brunch options. I had the hash brown tacos… Two taco shells made out of hash browns with hollandaise sauce…amazing. My friends had breakfast enchiladas and jalapeno corn bread, just too too good.

Come too late for brunch well then grab some lunch, grab some dinna. Dive into The Reuben or the Crab Guacamole! Yum Yum.

Come by Barcocina you wont be sorry!
