Review: Cornell crowd gets wild at Kid Cudi's intimate concert with opener Cee Lo Green.
The show began promptly at 7 p.m. By 7:15 a kid lay slouched against the bleachers, surrounded by paramedics and onlookers as he vomited on himself. At 7:45, EMTs evacuated a girl on a stretcher. The diligent janitor zipped back and forth from one vomit pile to the next, wiping away any trace of the indiscretion just in time for other people to come and sit in the same spot.
Review: France's indie darlings conquer the rock scene in Central New York and around the world.

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.
