Make sure to represent your angsty teen days and wear some nice emo clothes, black eyeliner and those old converse. These two popular local bands are sure put on an angsty show to match the attire which you won’t want to miss out on.

Milton J and the Leftovers is a 5-piece alternative hip-hop band, reminiscent of Linkin Park, Incubus, with influences from various MCs like Slug. With this high energy, angsty music, Miltin J and the Leftovers will start the late night concert off on an awesome note. Check out some of their songs here. Breakforth is a 4-piece rock band with metal influences who combine music like Nirvana, Foo Fighters, and Pearl Jam to create the own unapologetic sound. They bring in some major teen angst with hard hitting vocals sang by Loyola’s own, Matt Weitzil. Check them out here and catch these two great bands plus your needed dose of angst this Thursday!.

Explore Baltimore: Joe Benny’s Focacceria

January 20th, 2017 by Cara Hullings

What: Joe Benny’s Focacceria

Where: 313 S High St

When: Hours

On a mission to bring a piece of Sicily back to Baltimore, Joseph Gardella created Joe Benny’s. A fresh take on the Italian food we all love, this charming restaurant is serving up some amazing focaccia paninis and a variety of Sicilian pizzas. The bread used for all the food at Joe Benny’s is a one of a kind goodness that will you you straight to Italy and have you craving more as soon as you’re done.

As if this authentic food wasn’t enough, the atmosphere of Joe Benny’s Focacceria is authentic as well. This small, cute area is a place “about having a great time and enjoy life one bite (and sip) at a time” as Gardella promotes. With such a personality, the restaurant reminds you of a place in Sicily where locals would go. Between the awesome Italian food and the well-captured Italian atmosphere Joe Benny’s is really the highlight of Little Italy.

Staff Picks: Jeremy’s Top 5 Albums of 2016

December 23rd, 2016 by Margaret Jokoh

Review by: Jeremy Stephenson’17

Disclaimer: These albums are albums listened to in 2016, these may not actually be albums released in 2016.

170x170bb-15. Led Zeppelin – IV (untitled) –  

This is by far my favorite Zeppelin album. Start to finish this album will take you to magical places far away. The bluesy folk rock feel will make you dance your face off but still keep your neck sore from all the head banging. Remember to soften it up with Going to California.

Staff Picks: Will’s Top 5 Albums of 2016

December 19th, 2016 by Margaret Jokoh

Review by: Will O’Connor’20

Disclaimer: These albums are albums listened to in 2016, these may not actually be albums released in 2016.

170x170bb-55. Young Chasers – Circa Waves – 

This is the new Brtish band’s first album and it’s great. This whole album just makes you think of happy times. The suns shining, you’re on vacation with no worries and you’ve got this album playing through your headphones. This is what I picture of what it feels to be stress free. “Get Away” and “T-Shirt Weather” are summer anthems that will make you listen to them endlessly on repeat. This album is very professional and has very catchy guitar riffs to go along with the catchy melodies.

Staff Picks: Steve’s Top 5 Albums of 2016

December 16th, 2016 by Margaret Jokoh

Review by: Stephen Vanyo’17

Disclaimer: These albums are albums listened to in 2016, these may not actually be albums released in 2016.

 * Disclaimer these rankings aren’t hard and true, please don’t get mad at me for not putting Beyonce on this, Beyonce has her time elsewhere *

170x170bb5. D.R.A.M – Big Baby DRAM – 

Fresh off the success of “Cha Cha”, D.R.A.M  dropped his soul influenced, positivity laced new LP “Big Baby D.R.A.M”. With features coming from everyone from Lil Yachty to Erykah Badu, D.R.A.M shook up the hip-hop world with his energetic style of hip-hop. Described by D.R.A.M himself as “trappy-go lucky music”, D.R.A.M clearly differentiated himself from his counterparts this year. “Broccoli” is a certified party anthem.

Staff Picks: Claire’s Top 5 Albums of 2016

170x170bb5.) I Got Dem Ol’ Kozmic Blues Again Mama! – Janis Joplin – 

I loooooove Janis Joplin and especially this album. Janis suffered a lot in her childhood from bullying and struggled later in life with love and not surprisingly, drugs and alcohol. In this album, she really pours her heart out and opens herself up to her fans about everything that she’s going through and how it effects her. She’s so genuine and straightforward in her music and that’s especially shown in this album.

Explore Baltimore: The Dizz

December 9th, 2016 by Cara Hullings

history_bckgdWhat: The Dizz Pub

Where: 300 W 30th Street

When: Hours

Want a real taste of Baltimore? Then check out the Dizz, a great pub called “Baltimore in a bar”! Wall covered in cute, quirky decorations and lights to show off all their Baltimore pride, The Dizz is about more than just eating: it’s about the experience. Come out and site down to catch a Ravens or Orioles game which will be playing on one of the many televisions in the restaurant like the true pub style. While you’re there,grab some of that classic pub and diner food food that The Dizz does so well. Whether you’re in the mood for some fish and chips, a hamburger, wings, or a wrap this pub has it all and much more. They even serve up some great breakfast food! My personal favorite is their chicken cheesesteak, which always has the perfect ratio of cheese to meat. So take my order advice or go find your own favorite, but make sure you try The Dizz, or else you’re failing Baltimore!
