Review: Super Mash Bros. and Passion Pit stole the show from two much more deserving acts.
Lupe Fiasco was technically the headlining act of Juice Jam 2010, but when he finally took the stage after Passion Pit’s fanatically received performance, a quarter of the audience hightailed it to the exit. A few minutes later, when the rain began to pour, the audience that jumped along to Passion Pit’s bouncing beats dropped by half, leaving only dripping, diehard fans behind.
After seven years and several near misses, Juice Jam sells out once again.
At noon, a buzzing mob of 80 students, some sharing headphones, some giddily squealing for Passion Pit and Lupe Fiasco, crowded onto two well-worn yellow school buses at the College Place bus stop. The most aggressive ones pushed and shoved their way into seats – the rest were left behind in the early afternoon drizzle, wondering if the semester’s biggest campus concert was about to start without them.
Review: Spectacular sets from Arcade Fire and Pavement top Montreal music festival.
Montreal’s Osheaga Festival is so quintessentially Canadian.
The crowds are respectful and polite, the surroundings are calm and peaceful, and the lineup is filled with Canadian musicians.

Whether you're a newbie or seasoned concert-goer, The Disco Biscuits host a music festival like no other.
Five words to describe Camp Bisco: Vibrant, serene, wild, bumping and unique.
I've been to a lot of shows — indoor and outdoor — in cities and in the middle of nowhere. Last year I was even able to attend my first festival with ATP New York, a unique experience in its own right where I learned about navigating multiple stages and unique side shows.
Making Block Party history, headliner Drake performed at the Dome Friday for a record-breaking 9,500+.
Leading up to Block Party this week, campus was buzzing with several questions about the status of Drake’s voice. After canceling a show at University of Massachusetts-Lowell Wednesday due to a vocal problem, the Toronto native’s situation dominated conversations around campus.
But once Drake took the stage in the Carrier Dome, he wasted little time easing the audience’s concerns.
“The doctor told me to take three days off,” Drake said while sipping on some water. “But I couldn’t do that to my family at Syracuse.”
Review: Pop act Parachute tries to engage a smaller crowd Wednesday night at the Schine Underground.

Review: Bo Burnham's humor is lightning-quick, literate, and at times absurdist — more along the lines of Martins, both Steve and Demetri.
Millions of people have watched YouTube celeb Bo Burnham perform his self-accompanied, self-deprecating humorous tunes. The musical comedian had a more intimate audience Friday night when about 500 saw his routine live in Syracuse.
