Where: 1704 Aliceanna Street, Fells Point
When: Sunday – Saturday 7am to 5pm
Well Baltimore, looks like we are about to get some serious weather. #snowmaggedon2016
In times of snowy situations don’t you like to snuggle up with an infinity scarf in a warm coffee shop drinking a toasty beverage out of crisp white mug? Yes, yes you do. So, head to Café Latte Da for some winter warmth. Located in Fells Point it holds all the charm and quirk you would expect.
They make a delicious iced coffee using coffee ice cubes… Um awesome… Never worry about a diluted drink again. For those craving a sandwich or pastry they have got you covered with a variety of appetizing options! Café Latte Da roasts their own coffee from flavors like Italian–the Cane Corso blend, to Moka Java–the English Bulldog. You may have noticed those are both dogs and that would be because this coffee shop really supports Baltimore locals like the Baltimore Humane Society. They also showcase a new local artist every month and sell their artwork, ensuring all profits go to them!
Come support a local coffee shop and warm up this winter! Click here to learn more!

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 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.

Ryan Porter, the bassist from Psycho Killers (a Baltimore Talking Heads cover band), took some time with Kat and Rae to talk about their founding, upcoming Black Friday show and just how exactly they ended up with Thomas Dolby (yes, the “She Blinded Me With Science” guy) asking to join them on stage for a show. The band performed it’s second annual fundraising event at Baltimore Soundstage to gather donations for Toys For Tots the day after Thanksgiving. This year there was the bonus of Thomas Dolby sitting in!
