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.

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.

So pick your poison, no matter what talent it is, but don’t miss the last open mic night because that’s one poison you won’t back from!
April 17th, 2017 by The Professor
This week as a special Easter treat, we get not one, but TWO hours of chatting and spinning time with Jaime and Julie from Sweet Leda. The Professor chatted with the pair (bass & vocals) about what’s in the water in Pasadena, who they love, and just what kind of horror film they scored. They brought some of their (and our) favorite local albums, and talked about the process of recording their own latest piece of vinyl Let It In.

What: Slow Art Day
Where: The Walters Art Museum, 600 N Charles St
When: April 8th, 10am-5pm
Art is a powerful thing, but it’s even more powerful when over 200 museums across the globe come together to let you see art differently. What’s even more powerful? IT’S FREE. From Shanghai to Paris to right here in Baltimore, museums are participating in Slow Art Day to let anyone look at art as long as they want. Stop by the Walters’ Dutch Galleries to look at art for as long as you would like, whether it be 10 minutes or 30 minutes. This collection includes beautiful paintings of the countryside, Abraham Bloemaert’s Parable of the Wheat and the Tares, and Chinese porcelain. As you examine each of these pieces closely you will most definitely discover something new, maybe about the art or maybe about yourself. Afterwards, share what you share in a moderated discussion at 2pm to reflect on the art with other who loved the exhibit just as much as you. Slow Art Day will show you not only alot about art, but also a lot about the community around it.
