Unarguably, this has been a fantastic semester here at BU Central! We’ve had some pretty great acts grace our stage in the past (Cults, Chiddy Bang, Young the Giant, Four Year Strong, DJ Questlove, Bad Rabbits, Manchester Orchestra, Killer Mike, George Watsky, etc….just to name a few) but I’m pretty sure having two headliners with […]

I’ve always been proud to say that my music taste is extremely eclectic. I love everything from Frank Sinatra to Tupac to The Fray (my favorite band!–>check out my earlier post about them!) and back to The Temptations. Listening to music is one of my favorite past times so, naturally, I was really excited to start […]

It’s strange to think I stepped on campus all the way back in mid-August. It’s strange to think I’m already into my second semester of college. It’s strange to finally experience how freaking cold it is here (Geez!). It’s strange to think I’m back in chemistry again (ew). And it’s strange to think I was just home […]

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas… Okay, not really. But it’s certainly starting to feel like it outside. I’ve already placed handmade snowflakes in the window of my dorm room. And Starbucks has pulled out their holiday cups, and you know that when Starbucks pulls out the decorations, Christmas is finally here. Actually, […]

I know, I know; you’re stressed. You had four papers due this week and eleven midterms and sixty-two chemistry problem sets and then your car caught on fire and you broke your leg after you tripped over your shoelaces (even though you were wearing flip-flops), and life just sucks. But given the option, which would you […]

It’s that time again, people. That is, it’s time for my next post in the Soundtrack Lovin’ series! And this post is being dedicated to another favorite movie of mine - Save the Last Dance (2001). It’s about a white girl whose mother dies suddenly so she is forced to move to a very urban, largely African-American populated […]

I’d say it was about five to ten years ago. The female hip hop game is seriously lagging. Back in the 80s and 90s, there was a plethora of female rappers to listen to: Yo-Yo, Queen Latifah, MC Lyte, Lauryn Hill, Foxy Brown, Lil Kim, Left Eye, and probably a ton of people I’m forgetting. […]

One thing I have noticed about myself is that I really LOVE discovering new music through movies. There’s something about it that makes me really happy, especially if the movie becomes a favorite of mine. Actually, my first post for BU Central was about The Perks of Being a Wallflower (*cough* posted on October ninth) soundtrack. It’s really awesome, […]

So, this weekend, a friend and I went to see The Perks of Being a Wallflower. Considering how long we’ve been waiting for it to come out, we were pretty excited. Okay. Truth is, I only had the pleasure of reading it this summer while everyone else I know read it years ago, but that doesn’t […]

Last Saturday some of Boston’s finest local bands threw down in the final round of our Battle of the Bands series and out emerged Frank & Dependent as this year’s victor. The band has been steadily on the rise on the BU scene over the past few months, so it’s about time all y’all got […]
