DPS, SPD and Carrier Dome security are working together to create a secure environment for the Dalai Lama's visit to Syracuse University next week.

While Syracuse University awaits His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s appearance on campus next week, extensive security planning from campus, local, and state police continue to work to make his trip possible.

“There’s an overall security plan,” said Department of Public Safety Associate Chief John Sardino. “And those who are working it know it and there’s continuity there. But there are different aspects that each agency is taking care of.”

After weeks of criticism from students, up-and-coming house DJ Kaskade, alt-rockers Cold War Kids and Phantogram are set to entertain thousands in the Carrier Dome.

Is anyone going to Block Party this year?  That might be a question you hear around campus lately.

After University Union announced last month Block Party 2012 would feature DJ Kaskade and alt-rock act Cold War Kids, some students quickly vocalized their displeasure for the choices. 

Past Block Parties brought acts such as Kid Cudi, Nas, Kanye West and N.E.R.D., so expectations for big name artists this year were high again.

Preview: Long Beach neo-new wavers to play Schine with lone lead-singer.

In 2007 three dudes from Long Beach began making music. Again.

Singer-guitarist David Quon, bass player Derek VanHeule, and drummer Nathan Warkentin had been playing together in various formations for almost a decade, but this new venture was simpler and more organic than anything they’d done before. 

“The previous band we were playing in had kind of fizzled out and we thought that we were going to put music aside for a while,” said Quon. “But I’d had some ideas and we sort of started creating again; it was really fresh and easy.”

The Syracuse-based band returns home to play the opening day of the Fair at Chevy Court.

Kayleigh Goldsworthy strolled the thoroughfare around the Chevy Court stage at the New York State Fair Thursday munching on a deep-fried potato on a stick. Her twin sister, Kaleena, had just polished off a corndog and was milling around behind the stage. Considering the two were about to perform on opening day at one of the fair’s largest stages, they were completely at ease.

Review: Underoath and others light up Westcott Theater with heavy metal, strobing lights and projected video amps of energy.

It's been six years since Underoath graced a Syracuse stage.

In 2005, inside the dusty, baby-blue walls of Club Tundra that night, they celebrated the release of their brand-new record, They're Only Chasing Safety, which many fans consider the band's most successful album.

A lineup change and four albums later, Underoath's aesthetically pulverizing set at the Westcott Theater on Friday sampled the new-look Underoath without sacrificing much of the old.
