Album Review: Mastodon

Mastodon’s seventh album “Emperor of Sand” continues the band’s trend of moving toward a more pop-centric, radio-metal sound that their fans have been avoiding.

My music diary mixtape

My parents keep telling me that college is the best time of your life. I don't know if that's true, however it's definitely a time when one grows the most.

Katzen’s new spring art exhibits wow visitors

No single exhibit is the same at the AU Museum inside the Katzen Arts Center, and with over six new exhibits ranging from towering wooden structures to a redesign of the Mayan alphabet, Katzen’s spring collection is a must see.


Preview: AASU Presents: Awkwafina

You read that right: Nora “Awkwafina” Lum is coming to AU. You may recognize the hilarious Asian American rapper and television personality from her debut album “Yellow Ranger” (2014) or her appearances on MTV’s “Girl Code” and “Neighbors 2.” On the other hand, perhaps you haven’t heard of her and you think you’d much rather spend another Friday night watching movies or going out with some friends who promised to split a Lyft with you. Save yourself from the same old routine and make sure you’re in the crowd during this show. Awkwafina will be performing in MGC’s Tavern on Friday, April 7 at 9 p.m., hosted by the Asian American Student Union.


Foxygen electrifies the 9:30 Club

The California duo, Foxygen, brought its infectious pop energy to the 9:30 Club on March 22. Playing a relatively short 13-song set list, the group didn’t miss the mark on presenting its latest album “Hang,” released in January.


Preview: AU Arts presents magic and myth in ‘Argonautika’

Featuring comedy, drama, goddesses, sea monsters and giants, the AU Department of Performing Arts’ production of “Argonautika” will present an ancient Greek myth with a twist on March 30 at the Greenberg Theatre. After two semesters of sensational musicals and plays, DPA is bringing its 2016-17 season to a close with playwright Mary Zimmerman’s irreverent adaptation of the classic tale of Jason and the Argonauts. Director Isaiah Wooden is a longtime fan of Zimmerman, whose work he describes as “magic on stage.” Wooden considered several of her plays while selecting DPA’s final show of the season, but was ultimately drawn to the thrilling story and compelling themes of “Argonautika.” “Argonautika” follows the heroic Jason and his intrepid crew, known as the Argonauts, as they embark on a risky quest to retrieve the treasured Golden Fleece.

Concert Review: Los Campesinos! at the 9:30 Club

After being chastised for not attending any concerts in Washington, D.C. during the three years I have spent here, I was given the opportunity to see a high school favorite, Los Campesinos!, at the famous 9:30 Club. Shortly after arriving at the venue, indie bands Infinity Crush and Crying opened to a crowded house.
