This week’s playlist: Nostalgic

October 23, 2020 Lara Becker 0

There’s an image I can never really get out of my head: the boy in baggy jeans and a grown-out crew cut, also known as Chad Michael Murray in the millionth iteration of “A Cinderella Story.” The year is 2004 and I’ve probably never loved anything more than this jock-turned-Prince Charming and poet at heart, all fictional of course. He’s got that hard exterior but soft interior, the kind of personality that makes all the girls keep pictures of him in their lockers. Utterly unattainable. […]

Every time I hear the first guitar chord of “Can’t Stop” by the Red Hot Chili Peppers blare from speakers, a divine intervention takes place.

If it weren’t for Brandon Flower’s chiseled punk guyliner and sultry voice, I probably would have tried to move on from 00’s rock bands. The Killers have been held in limbo for quite some time in the midst of these trying times, so why not shoot 2020 in the foot and release their new album, “Imploding the Mirage?” But this foot sets off running with quite an explosive array of figments in a time capsule.

Last CUB Alt electrifies classic rock sound

November 19, 2019 Signal Contributor 0

The stage was built, the tricolor lights were aglow and the speakers were set for CUB’s Alt’s final show of the semester. While the shows have branched out into rap and folk music recently, this week’s concert returned to its roots for one last time this fall. […]

Mellow show highlights student music

It was closing time at the library. The daily announcement telling students to move downstairs when and the library would open again had been made. Meanwhile, in the basement, the CUB Alt show was just getting started in the Library Auditorium. […]
