Review: Despite some lengthy tracks, the band's latest release is worth your time.
There’s a cinematic quality woven throughout The Seer, Swans’ newest album. Over the course of its 119 minutes, you can feel the solipsistic stoicism of Kubrick, the industrial dystopia of Lang, the ephemeral spirituality of Malick, the grueling suspense of Leone.
With one popular DJ/producer, one rapper, and one hip-hop trio, this years concert will attract the largest crowd in recent Juice Jam history.
Update (Sept. 5): University Union officials have announced that the Sept. 9 Juice Jam concert will feature co-headliners Calvin Harris and Childish Gambino. The co-headliners will be met with support from hip-hop trio, The Dean's List.
Speculation that the popular DJ and producer will be playing the Sept. 9 concert have been buzzing through social media outlets.
Calvin Harris has been a busy guy lately, and that's not about to change. The DJ/producer's extensive list of tour dates has him traveling worldwide for the next few months without pausing for much of a break.
The NewsHouse caught up with the Block Party special guests on the formation of the band, playing in front of their parents and holographic Tupac.
NewsHouse: Let’s start from scratch: how’d you two meet and when did you know it was time to make a band?
Sarah Barthel: We’ve been friends since we were 15 or 14 years old. We went to high school together and my neighbor was one of Josh’s best friends. It was just that little block where all the kids would come to hang out. Then I went to college and Josh went to New York to work on different bands and we both moved back upstate at the same time in 2005. We started hanging out and after about two years we decided to take the band seriously.
