Review: Cults, The Vanderbuilts successfully open University Union's first Bandersnatch show of the semester with enthusiastic brand of indie-rock.

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.

Review: Rappers Rick Ross and Ludacris please large numbers with older songs at University Union's inaugural winter concert.

Krystie Yandoli loves rap. She loves it so much that her family even made a joke about it when she was growing up. Sometimes they call her Luda-Krys.

“I’m really excited to see my namesake,” said Yandoli, a senior English student, as she waited in the minutes before rappers Ludacris and Rick Ross took the stage to perform at University Union’s inaugural Rock the Dome concert. Yandoli was one of more than 7,000 who paid to see the duo.
