Karoondinha Ticket Giveaway!

June 19th, 2017 by The Professor

WLOY has gotten the amazing opportunity to give a lucky listener a pair of three-day passes, including camping, for the Karoondinha Music and Arts Festival! The festival will take place the weekend of July 21st to the 23rd, at Penn’s Cave and Wildlife Park located in Centre Hall, Pennsylvania. Karoondinha will feature over 80 artists, headliners include Chance the Rapper, Odesza, John Legend, Paramore, and Alessia Cara- others artists include John Bellion, Grace Vanderwaal, Watsky, and many more!

The festival was created by brother-sister duo, Kaleena and Paul Rallis, who grew up in central Pennsylvania and wanted to bring the serenity that they experienced in their childhood to the music festival. In fact, the name, Karoondinha is that of the creek that runs through Penn’s Cave, a natural embodiment of serenity. Set on 1,6000 unspoiled acres of rolling hills and rich farmland, Karoondinha is working to achieve this dream. Additionally, festival goers are encouraged to partake in daily yoga sessions, dance workshops, art installation, gourmet food vendors, and all-water tour caves.

Kaleena and Paul Rallis had also imagined that this festival should give them an opportunity to give back. Karoondinha has partnered with nonprofits such as The Bestwick Foundation, Wildlife for Everyone Foundation, and the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank. In general, they hope that the Festival will give the local community something to be proud of, as well as, encourage visits to Penn’s Cave and Wildlife Park.

The Karoondinha Music and Arts Festival is meant to be a way to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life by bringing festival-goers into an immersion of sound, nature, and all around bliss. You can find out more about the festival at http://karoondinha.com/. Enter to win the three-day passes and camping follow the hyperlink below. Good luck!

WLOY Coffeehouse: Black Rhinoceros

April 24th, 2017 by Cara Hullings

WLOY’s last event of the semester is here and we’re not sure how we feel about it. Of course we saved the best for last, but saying goodbye all our Thursday night fun is tragic. No matter how you’re feeling about the end of the semester though, Black Rhinoceros and openers, Divided Heaven are sure pick you up. Black Rhinocerous, an acoustic pop duo will be playing their relaxing, chill tunes on guitar and cello, which is the perfect music to cram to finals to. As self-proclaimed nerd rock, Black Rhinoceros will be sure to appreciate you studying to their music.

By combining Erin’s cello and vocal skills with Ahren’s guitar and vocal, Black Rhinoceros create complex melodies, harmonies and chord progressions in order to make some beautiful songs that you’ll want to listen to forever. Check out what is mean with their song, Gaius, which you can listen to here. Don’t miss it live though! This Thursday. Outside Starbucks. 8-10pm.

Explore Baltimore: The Food Market

April 21st, 2017 by Cara Hullings

What: The Food Market

Where: 1017 W 36th St.

When: Sun-Thurs, 5pm-11pm Fri & Sat, 5pm-12am

The Food Market loves to cook up some comfort food, but make it gourmet. Described as a place for foodies to feel their exotic side, this restaurant and its award-winning chef, Chad Gauss, combine regular ingredients with irregular and “unparalleled” techniques. Gauss, who has been sharing his love for cooking since the age of 14, adds a twist on classic foods. In the mood for something like pizza or chicken finger? Well try them twist with menu options like crispy lobster fingers or a duck confit flatbread.  But if you’re not feeling that adventurous, The Food Market still has the basics like the boring caesar salad or a warm lobster roll. Regardless, this amazing food as well as the industrial-modern vibe create a full, enjoyable dining experience for everyone.
