Rocky Horror Picture Show on the Quad-Thursday, October 25th

October 22nd, 2018 by Lindsey Zapata

“Let’s do the time-warp again…” and again and again. It’s that time of year for WLOY, where we get a little more wacky, a little more thrilling, a little more spoopy. For WLOY Halloween means watching Rocky Horror Picture Show on the quad with some friends in costumes. So, if you want to join in on the fun, come this Thursday, October 25th, from 8-10pm; not only will we be playing the movie, but we will also be doing giveaways for the best costumes! Also, for those who don’t know much about the film (please come) it is a cult-classic and is a musical that parodies science-fiction and B list horror movies. If that sounds wild, well it should. That aside, it is the most accurate way to describe the movie. Happy Halloween and we will see you Thursday!

Pressing Strings Concert 10/12 McGuire Hall

October 8th, 2018 by Lindsey Zapata

Pressing Strings is one of my favorite bands that we will be having at Loyola this semester. Thursday, October 12th, WLOY will be hosting Pressing Strings for their Thursday night concert in McGuire Hall. The band is made up of Jordan Sokel on guitar and vocal, Nick Welker on bass, and Brandon Bartlett on the drums. Like many of the performers we have hosted, Pressing Strings is a locally grown band coming from the Annapolis- Baltimore area. The reason they are one of my favorite bands that we have is because they are the epitome of the type of sound you would find on the Happy Folk channel on Spotify; their Indie Soul Rock vibes put you right into your happy place. So come to McGuire this Thursday and take a break from all your mid-term studies. We’ll be doing giveaways like tickets and mugs! See you! Remember, like all Thursday night WLOY shows this is FREE!

Matt Hoopes, of Relient K, would produce the finished album, with Zach Farro of Paramore, playing drums. They the finished Calm Down Everything’s Fine and released the album in 2014. The album hit the top 20 ranks on Billboard’s New Artist Albums Chart.

Coffeehouse 9/27: Nalani & Sarina

September 24th, 2018 by Lindsey Zapata

We love a repeat act here at WLOY… and believe me Nalani & Sarina are not strangers to our Thursday night performances. We have had them back for years now, and we just cannot get enough. This Thursday, September 27th, Nalani & Sarina will be playing a Coffeehouse performance next to Starbucks from 8-10pm. The two are an American soul-rock duo, that sing play keyboard, guitar, and ukulele–amongst many other instruments. Originally from New Jersey, they’ve been performing mostly on the east coast, opening for artists such as A Great Big World, Mary Lambert, and Howie Day, as well as, performing at a TEDx event held at Firefly Music Festival in Delaware in 2017. Bring your homework, grab a coffee, and listen to some warm vocals this chilly Thursday night.

Below you can listen to our Studio Seizure with them!

Lavender & Modern Nomad LIVE 9/20

September 18th, 2018 by The Professor

Late Night at McGuire Hall. 8pm-10pm. Be there or be square. WLOY will be hosting Washington DC’s Lavender and Baltimore’s own, Modern Nomad– and I honestly could not think of a better sound combination. If you think of driving in the car with the windows down on a comfortably warm summer’s day and you only had your thoughts and a soundtrack– this concert would be it. Lavender and Modern Nomad’s alt indie vibes will put you into a dream-like trans. Lavender is closer in likeness to the 1975, but with a female vocalist, where Modern Nomad has a more Tame Impala feel to them. Trust me this is not a show you want to miss; hope to see you there.

Charm City Night Market

September 17th, 2018 by The Professor

What: Charm City Night Market

Where: Historic Chinatown– 200 Park Ave

When: Saturday, September 22, 2018 at 4:00 p.m- 11:00pm

The Charm City Night Market, happening this Saturday, will be the first of hopefully many future Lunar Mid-Autumn Festivals that will be taking place in Baltimore, spanning from the Lexington Market to Park Avenue. Learn about the Chinese culture by listening to the music–not to mention, a WLOY favorite, Cecilia Grace will be performing on the main stage at 5:00pm. Take a moment to experience the art, whether that be in the form of jewelry or lanterns (maybe even buy a few things). And also make sure to take advantage of my favorite part of any culture, and taste as much of the food as your wallet allows. Take a sneak of what there is to offer by accessing their instagram @charmcitynightmarket.
