A first-time (and last-time) festival-goer

It’s a sad truth: The Northeast does not have many music festivals. I hail from New York, and though this year we were graced with Governors Ball and several EDM festivals, I was unable to attend the former and not interested in the latter. However, Boston Calling seemed like a good opportunity to get my […]

MC means move the crowd

Kendrick Lamar absolutely killed his performance at the Boston Calling Festival. Even though I should have been completely ecstatic to see him perform, I came to Boston Calling apprehensive of how his performance would turn out since a couple of my friends were telling me that he wasn’t that amazing live. Could it be true? […]

Some Things We Liked About Boston Calling

Last weekend (or a couple weekends ago, way to stay relevant BU central)  the Boston Calling Music Festival brought together all types of Bostonians, looking to watch some music and stuff.

I can say that I managed to create a playlist that consisted of all songs that I had never heard before (or had heard once or twice) and ended up loving. It’s always so refreshing to the ears to listen to new music. And it’s an especially great way to start the new year! The playlist is […]

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 […]
