Up-and-coming Brooklyn rapper Joey Bada$$ kicked off the first Bandersnatch show with support from Dizzy Wright in the Schine Underground on Tuesday March 5.
The headliner came and delivered with a splash, a splash of water that is.
Joey Bada$$ played the Schine Underground on Monday night for a sold-out crowd. The 18-year old Brooklyn native showed a stage presence and connection to fans that only comes with the experience of older artists.
“He is hip-hop’s golden boy,” said junior Carter Sims. “Syracuse students don’t know how lucky they are to get this guy to come so early in his career.”
Review: On Wednesday night, the Cincinnati-based indie-rockers played to an ecstatic audience in an environment much more intimate than the ones they've grown used to.
If the guys of Walk the Moon live life the way they play music, they are probably surrounded by dancing at all times.
The indie-rock band took to the Schine Underground for University Union’s second Bandersnatch Music Series show of the fall semester in an event Wednesday evening at 8 p.m. Even during the band’s slower songs it was impossible for audience members to stand still. There’s no wondering why the chorus of Walk the Moon’s crowd pleaser "Lisa Baby" boasts “my baby is a dancing queen.”
WERW put together their most eclectic show to date, from garage rock to electro-rock-punk to a band made up entirely of Nancy Sinatra clones, this certainly was a bill for an eclectic audience.
Opening the show was Dumb Talk, who played to a sedated crowd, but by the last three songs everyone had shaken off their catatonic states to enjoy the valiant efforts of the band. Dumb Talk recently signed to Miscreant Records, a label formed by Syracuse University student, Jeanette Wall. With a new record pressed, and many upcoming one-off shows, Dumb Talk is giving it the best they can, especially since all of the members are still in college.
Review: The folk-punk band mixes old and new tracks for an engaged Schine Underground crowd.
If you didn’t know about Titus Andronicus’ lo-fi folk-punk fusion, the sight of Syracuse University students' head banging might’ve been a jarring visual.
The band headlined a WERW and Music and Entertainment Industry Student Association co-sponsored show at the Schine Underground on Thursday along with bands Caveman and local student band The Vanderbuilts.
Review: Cults, The Vanderbuilts successfully open University Union's first Bandersnatch show of the semester with enthusiastic brand of indie-rock.
Pulling off a successful performance in Syracuse’s Schine Underground isn’t easy. Even a talented act must face the threat of questionable acoustics and indifferent student audiences. Luckily, Cults and the Vanderbuilts overcame both obstacles with the artistic finesse of bands well-versed in small-venue performances.
“We played our first show here,” Vanderbuilts frontman Sam Kogon told the crowd between songs.
