Freakfest is one of the most anticipated and well-known weekends in Madison. With my freshman experience behind me, I was ready for round two. MisterWives and Timeflies were performing at this year’s Capitol stage, two artists who are experts when it comes to partying and hosting an insane concert in Madtown. Last October, Timeflies rocked out at the Orpheum Theater. This Halloween weekend was MisterWives’ third time in Madison this year, after playing at the High Noon Saloon in March and then at the Majestic in September. They just can’t get enough of this city—and I can’t complain.

What does it mean to be a grown-up? Be it the 18-year-old incoming freshman or the 22-year-old senior at the cusp of graduation, adulthood and the pressure to grow up hovers above both. But do any one of us even know what it means to be a grown-up? I’ve spoken to people in their late twenties and almost thirties who scoff when referred to as a grown-up. So clearly, it isn’t the state of holding a professional full-time job, living by yourself in an apartment or seriously seeing someone. But what is it then? We’re told that turning into the milestone of our legal age and entering college puts us into the world of those that have grown up at some level. We’re also told that graduating college and entering what is sadly called the real world is the mark of adulthood. And yet we neither feel nor think of ourselves as grown-ups.
The San Diego Chargers clearly had their sights set on Melvin Gordon.
No. 4-seeded Wisconsin (29-2 overall) started off its NCAA tournament run Thursday by sweeping Western Michigan (22-14) at the UW Field House. The Badgers won the first and final sets easily, at 25-9 and 25-10, while Western Michigan made life difficult for the Badgers in the second pushing them to a highly contested 26-24 set win.
The Badgers (11-7 Big Ten, 22-8 overall) traveled to the Great Lakes state for a pair of matches this weekend, coming out with two solid wins against ranked opponents.
The Wisconsin volleyball team returned home this weekend to take on Nebraska Friday night and Iowa on Sunday. The No. 16 Badgers lost to Nebraska 3-1, but came back to defeat Iowa in a three game sweep.
Fade Away, Best Coast’s newly released mini-album, is undeniably the strongest effort we’ve seen from the band in their short four-year span. With seven songs led by Bethany Consentino, a pop-powered California girl for the college crowd, Fade Away transitions the band into a new phase of Vaccines-like power pop with a coastal vibe.
The Madison Police Department released a statement last week that, in short, said the Mifflin Street Block Party is no longer a city sanctioned event, which only proves the MPD lacks confidence in Revelry as an alternative to the block party. Their statement is an insult to the people who have worked so hard on planning Revelry as well as the artists performing there.
University of Wisconsin-Madison Professor Emeritus and Department of Statistics founder George E. P. Box died March 28 at the age of 93.
As students of the University of Wisconsin-Madison, we are all so lucky to be receiving a great education at one of the best colleges in the nation. Unfortunately though, we always hear horror stories of happenings after graduation. People we know can’t find jobs, and they have to settle for anything they can get. It’s enough to make us all question our directions and career aspirations.
Welcome to Chicago at its hippest. Okay, Chi-town is always pretty hip, but the metra is especially packed this weekend for Pitchfork Music Festival—three days of those bands that will probably be your favorite a year from now. But to keep our loyal readers ahead of the game, we’re providing coverage from the trenches.
This is the end! Despite our zombie-like trances after four days of intense ‘Rooing, we finished the trip solidly with a stellar Sunday lineup. We split up early in the morning to maximize coverage, with Jaime seeing Grouplove and Young the Giant and Marina heading to The Antlers and fun. We also both caught snippets of Ben Folds Five and Bon Iver as we crossed the field to various stages to fill up our Sunday.
It’s been three days and stamina is low, guys. Let’s just cut to the chase.
On our second day of Bonnaroo debauchery we awoke in a sweaty haze as the first rays of sun broke through the screens of our tent and essentially turned it into an oven. Welcome to the farm.
After a surprisingly smooth entry into the gates of the third world country that is Bonnarro in Manchester, Tenn. we set up camp and set out to explore the farmland that will be our home for the next four days.
Around 6,300 Tea Party supporters marched to support the conservative cause and Republican recall targets at the Tax Day Rally at the Capitol Saturday.
For the first time since the recall effort began, polls show Gov. Scott Walker losing in head-to-head races against other potential recall candidates, according to report released by Public Policy Polling last week.
Playing away from Madison has not been kind to the Wisconsin men’s hockey team (8-14-2 WCHA, 13-15-2 overall) this season, but it will try to improve on its dismal road record this weekend as it travels north to face Bemidji State (9-12-3, 15-14-3) hoping to build momentum for the postseason.
The Wisconsin men's basketball team (6-1 overall) suffered their first blemish on the season Wednesday night in the finale of the Big Ten-ACC Challenge, losing to the No. 5 North Carolina Tar Heels 60-57. They now turn their attention to Saturday's matchup with in-state rival Golden Eagles as they welcome No 16. Marquette (6-0) to the Kohl Center.
Members of the Mifflin Neighborhood Association discussed the future of the Mifflin Street Block Party and the construction of a new apartment complex on North Bassett Street Wednesday.
