Whether it’s a song that shrouded a memory or a movie that opens new perspectives, the media we interact influences us, adding new depths and colors to our already eventful lives. Romance, existentialism, a need to dance one’s heart out on the way to class, and many more stories come together as our writers reflect […]

What do you do after a 23 mile hike at Big Sur, you go to a Sammy Rae & The Friends Concert. I went with Harry Frahn, who was also on the camping trip with me. As I quickly shoved myself to the front before another wave of people came in – Miki Ratsula, the […]

art by skye schoenhoeft In March of 2019, I made a playlist with new music I found that month. It wasn’t curated, it wasn’t ordered, it was just songs I liked, in the arrangement I found them in.

My first and prevailing predominant thought over the course of the night: this venue is way too cool for me.

Wallice @ Lodge Room [12/6/22] “LA is my favorite show ever,” Wallice says. Up on stage, she towers over a sea of cowboy hats, unif jackets, and Tik Tok inspired fits. Tonight, the Lodge Room is a Gen-Z mecca, where hundreds of Zoomers are gathered to see Indie-Pop darling Wallice. Although Los Angeles native Wallice […]
