6. Studio-a-Rama

(Sept. 6, 2014)

As always, WRUW’s Studio-a-Rama brought in plenty of impressive local acts, and plenty of strange stories to tell until next year’s show rolls around. Seriously, how many times can you say you’ve seen someone rubbing ice cream all over himself?

10. UPB Fall Concert: Juicy J and Echosmith

(Nov. 1, 2014)

Juicy J, as an artist, can be hit or miss for some people. University Program Board’s Fall Concert wasn’t the biggest concert, compared to past years, but it was still solid for fans of the rapper. With the help of Echosmith, the concert transformed Veale Athletic Center into a music venue for just a few hours.
