Battle of the Bands Winners: The Dialogue

April 1st, 2011 by The Professor

Congratulations to The Dialogue, who topped The Palace at 4am and Stone Cold Star Fox for the honor of opening Loyolapalooza!  It was a great Battle of the Bands, with good performances from all the participants.  Big thanks to our panel of outstanding judges Mark Osteen, Xavier Cole, Anthony Villa, Kevin Gift and Sarah Sample! We had a great crowd and everyone had a blast. As a bonus we handed out a pair of tickets for a show at Rams Head Live! You know you have to be at our events or listening in to win, right?

The Dialogue will now have the pleasure of opening for Steel Train with Matt and Kim on Sunday May 1st at the 2011 Loyolapalooza! Nice job guys! Also check out their upcoming shows at The Ottobar (including May 11 with …And You Will Know Us By The Trail of Dead & Surfer Blood).

April 1st, 2011 by mjwilliams2

Now that the weather is getting nicer, it seems more likely that people will leave their dorms and explore the wonderful city around us. Although it is more than likely that you’ve experienced the beautiful Fells Point, stop and ask yourself if you have ever seen it in the daylight. If you answered “no,” then you are missing out. However, you’re in luck, and that is because of the Blue Moon Cafe. Praised by countless blogs and other city newspapers, the Blue Moon Cafe promises an amazing breakfast to get your day of exploration started. With a calm environment, friendly servers, and a great music selection, the Blue Moon Cafe makes sure you are enjoying yourself…before they stuff you with the sweetest breakfast of your life. With items on the menu like stacks of caramel-drizzled banana-bread pancakes or the notorious Cap’n Crunch french toast, you’d be a fool to miss out. Read the rest of this entry »

Asobi Seksu – Fluorescence

March 30th, 2011 by Eric Loose

As listeners, we desire familiarity– something to grasp on to, to harken back to. Looking back on the past can help us understand the present, but this desire gets us in trouble sometimes. We can get too caught up in striving to label that modern day My Bloody Valentine or Slowdive that we forget to appreciate the distinctness of the tongue-twister-tagged Asobi Seksu.

The Flaming Lips and Neon Indian – The Flaming Lips and Neon Indian

March 28th, 2011 by Eric Loose

Everything is in its right place, perfectly as you would expect a Flaming Lips and Neon Indian collaboration to play out. With little fanfare, Wayne Coyne personally hand-delivers the EP to record stores in his local Oklahoma City area (only two stores are reported to be carrying the EP at this point), the artwork is indistinct, and a main facet of the all-vinyl release is that not two single vinyls are adorned with the same color or pattern– unique, and exactly what we could expect from such a work. The collaboration makes perfect sense, after all. Read the rest of this entry »
