Music Monday: Yellow Ostrich

Happy Monday everyone! This Music Monday is a bit unique because the band I’m writing about is coming to Butler one week from today. This band is none other than Yellow Ostrich.

Yellow Ostrich is a three-person American-indie rock band from New York. The trio has performed at festivals such as Lollapalooza and Austin City Limits, so it’s kind of rad that they are coming to perform at Butler. The band has five albums and six EP’s, so you should check them out before the show.

Fun fact: I made this poster.

Fun fact: I made this poster.

They have a sound similar to Noah and the Whale, and are just kind of funky and dreamy in general. I dig them real hard, and I think you will too. Another cool thing about them, Daniel Radcliffe digs them too (click here to see what I’m talking about). The concert is being presented by program board’s Coffeehouse, so the concert will be in Starbucks. It’s free, there will be free food, AND there will be great music. Plus I’ll be there, so what’s not to love?!

Moral of the story, come see Yellow Ostrich on Monday October 21 at 7 p.m. in Starbucks!

Have a great week and thanks for reading :)

Get Involved

Happy Tuesday to all, welcome back to school, and welcome back to this blog! Since I kept up with a blog over the summer and also wrote for a site called U lala, I will waste no time telling you about my time away from being a Butler blogger. Let’s dive right into Butler stuff, yeah?

Since the school year is relatively fresh and most clubs and organizations are just starting up with meetings and events, and there is just a lot of stuff going on in general, I thought I’d tell you about all of the things I’m involved in, just in case you want to be involved too.

1. Free concert and free food on Thursday. I’m involved with Program Board’s Coffeehouse, which is an organization that provides free concerts in Starbucks throughout the year. The first one is this Thursday at 7 p.m. and features Butler’s own Coyote Armada. I blogged about them here last semester, and they are super great. I’m a huge fan.

2. Celebrate peace on Friday. Come out this Friday at noon to celebrate Butler’s new Peace Pole, right off the Starbucks patio. There will be music, sandwiches, peace buttons, and a chance to reflect on the peace pole in 16 languages. More info on that herehispic

3. Football game on Saturday. I am on the dance team and will be dancing at the football game this Saturday at 6:00 p.m. Come see the dance team, as well as the Butler football team. Yeah, school spirit, yeah!

4. Join the Visual Arts Student Organization. Also known as VASO, this organization is essentially Butler’s art club. All majors are welcome and no artistic experience is necessary. We will be having a callout meeting on Wednesday the 25th at 7:30 p.m. in Jordan 183. Come art with us!

5. Join Demia. Demia is Butler’s feminist organization on campus. We meet every Monday at 8 p.m. in Jordan 225. We are currently discussing events for Good Sex is Consensual Week at the end of the month. Just show up one week if you wanna join!

6. Join Alliance. Alliance is Butler’s LGBTQ/ gay-straight alliance organization. All are welcome, regardless of sexual orientation. Talk of having a gay pride parade was brought up at the last meeting, as well as planning the drag show Halloween event Alliance hosts every year. Email alliance@butler.edu if you want to get involved.

7. Read Archives. Archives is the ever-so-lovely humor magazine on campus. I write and photograph for it, so you should definitely check it out. Everyone on staff is super funny and interesting and I know you’ll love it. We will be passing out copies of the magazine fo free outside Starbucks at the end of the month. 319421_413723962012329_1292098326_n

8. Read U lala. As I mentioned above, I contribute to a site called U-la-la.com. U lala is a fashion and lifestyle blog created for college women. The site is all about positive, inspirational content, and each school has a branch. I obviously write for the Butler branch, but you should most certainly check out the other school’s stuff while you’re over there.

That is enough shameless self promotion for one post and I kind of hate myself now. Comment or contact me in some way if you want to get involved in anything listed above/if you have any questions.

As always, thanks for reading and have a great week :)
