Happy Monday and welcome back to the first Music Monday of the school year! As you probably know, Butlerpalooza was last weekend. The concert was put on my SGA’s Program Board and featured the band Youngblood Hawke, as well as B.O.B. I thoroughly enjoyed Youngblood Hawke’s performance, so this first Music Monday is dedicated to them.
Youngblood Hawke at Butlerpalooza
Youngblood Hawke is a six-person indie pop band from California that formed back in 2011. Since its formation, the band released a self-titled EP, as well as a recently released album entitled Wake Up. Most excitingly, their single We Come Running was listed as iTunes’ single of the week in August of 2012. Rock on, guys!
Before seeing them at Butlerpalooza, I had only ever heard their song We Come Running. Since I love that song and repeatedly played it on a mixed cd in my car over the summer, I was pumped to see them perform. Their set was really good and I loved watching them bounce around the stage. Truthfully, everyone else in the crowd seemed a bit dead, but my friends Brandon, Allie, and I danced and whooped it up. After the show, the band was signing autographs and I had them sign the back of an old grocery list I found in my purse. It was pretty great.
The band has a cool sound to them, strangely sounding fun and alive while simultaneously sounding kind of echoey. I can’t quite describe it, but they are definitely worth checking it.
Have a great week and thanks for reading
“We Come Running”
“Stars (Hold On)”
Wednesday night I went to see a play called Seven that was being shown here on campus. This show was put on by the Butler University Theater with the Phoenix Theater. The show chronicled the stories of seven women from different countries, telling their individuals stories of how they have overcome adversity. The play was really interesting and all of the actresses did an amazing job portraying people from all over the world (all of the accents were really convincing!) By going to the play, I also knocked out one of my Butler Cultural Requirements, which was an added bonus! The play is being shown again tonight and tomorrow night at 8 p.m. in the theater in Lilly Hall, so you should check it out!
Tonight is the first home volleyball game, and tomorrow night is the first home football game. I am excited for both games because the dance team will be dancing at them! Tonight is also the second annual Butlerpalooza. The bands featured will be Smash Mouth and Chiddy Bang. The concert starts at 8 p.m. and runs till about 10:30 p.m. The Concert will take place at Clowes Memorial Hall, and tickets must be picked up sometime today before 5 p.m., so make sure to get your tickets if you are planning on going! Saturday from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. is the Penrod Art Festival outside the Indianapolis Museum of Art, so that is another wonderful thing to check out!
There are plenty of fun things to do this weekend, so make sure you go and out and do them. I am also going to include a corny joke every Friday, so here goes: Why did the hipster burn his tongue?
He drank his tea before it was cool.
Happy Friday and thanks for reading
