Bring Your Own Vinyl Night, a weekly event at Funk 'N Waffles, draws students and community members to try out a new way of listening to music.

In a world of easily accessible digital music, listening to a vinyl record can be seen as either for older generations or contrarians. The format has seen a resurgence in recent years, but it still carries the mark of an item reserved for only serious collectors and aficionados. To the uninitiated, vinyl records can seem mysterious and a little intimidating.

Review: The indie rockers put on a powerhouse performance blending classic hits and new music.

The New Pornographers rocked the State Theatre of Ithaca on Tuesday night, and fewer than 200 people were there to see it.

To my surprise, the Theatre was nowhere near full. I got to the venue 30 minutes before the show, which was general admission, even started and still managed to get seats in the fourth row.

But, the show deserved a far greater turnout than it received.

It may have been a snowy Monday night in Syracuse, but that didn’t stop people in the community from coming out to see New Zealand’s leading contemporary dance group, Black Grace, perform their athletic and traditional repertory.  

“We love seeing live dance and there’s not many opportunities in Syracuse to see it. So, whenever we have an opportunity, we try to see it,” Sarah Saulson of Syracuse, who attended the event with her husband Peter, expained.
