 Stephanie Garber WHO’S BAD brings fun and funk to the Newport

There’s no denying the legacy and impact of Michael Jackson’s music – it’s a timeless mark on our society. So there will always be an audience for a good MJ tribute band. Case in point: Saturday at the Newport with“Who’s Bad?” The excitement was palpable as the crowd waited for Michael to appear, soaking up […]

Show Review: Borgore

Briana Henry Briana Henry Show Review: Borgore

Last night, Borgore played to a crowd about the size of a packed campus house party. That being said, the show was amazing. The crowd was extremely diverse, and I’m not sure if it is because spring break is this week, but there were a lot of high-schoolers. Path, a local rapper, opened the night. […]
