After three years, LANY returned to Lollapalooza — only this time they were bigger and better than ever. With a larger stage and a larger crowd, the indie pop band exuded confidence and charisma, much more than their 2015 set. Matching their stage presence, energy and enthusiasm, the crowd wasted no time shouting and cheering the second the band set foot on stage. Grins set into place on everyone around me. LANY is a somewhat lesser-known band, but considering Lollapalooza’s roots as an alternative music festival, LANY’s place in the lineup felt more than right.

Lewis Del Mar returned to Madison last night at the High Noon Saloon. The New York duo is comprised of Danny Miller, their lead singer and guitarist, and Max Harwood, their drummer. Though still a fairly new artist, Danny expressed great appreciation to the crowd as he reported that their Madison show last year had been the biggest show they’d performed at the time. “We felt like we were way in over our heads … but now it feels like we’re all in our living room.” As the crowd cheered, a level of comfort and ease settled in for both the performers and the audience that carried throughout the show.
Having first read “The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks” my freshman year of high school, I was more than intrigued by the thought of the novel coming to life. “The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks,” written by Rebecca Skloot, follows the author’s journey in uncovering the equally tragic and fascinating story of how HeLa cells, arguably one of the most advancing scientific discoveries for the medical world, came to existence.
When Jay Asher’s teen fiction novel, “13 Reasons Why,” first came out in 2007, I was among the many who were immediately engrossed with the New York Times bestseller. When first hearing that the page-turner would be hitting Netflix screens, all of us “13 Reasons Why” fans around the world were, rightfully so, intrigued. As a story that is filled with taboo topics, and with it being as intimate, intense and personal as it is, many us were questioning how these words and passages would play out on screen.
After the lull of an average school and work day, fans of all ages gathered together at the Majestic Theatre on a seemingly quiet Tuesday night for Cold War Kids, an alternative, indie-rock band that is most notable for their hit, “First.” Shivering from both the chilling weather and anxious excitement, I stood in line for the doors to open at 7 p.m. There was a small crowd beside me making small talk and shivering; all of us were different, yet all of us were fans, and together, we were all unaware of the bold and lively dynamic that awaited inside the theater.
I’m not sure whether it was the few days of glorious spring weather we had last week, or the fact that it recently hit me that I am in fact halfway through my freshman year at UW-Madison, but lately the thoughts that have been dancing around in my mind as I daydream in class have been making me extremely nostalgic.
After his year-long hiatus, Ed Sheeran has finally dropped his much anticipated third album, ÷. As a devoted fan, the thought of a third album gives me butterflies. I had seen Sheeran perform in a tiny venue with just a few hundred listeners in Chicago back in 2014, awestruck at his one-man performance, soulful vocals and genuine character that easily touched everyone in the room’s hearts and minds. For most, a change in direction in sound and style on new albums is often unsettling to fans, but many changes in Sheeran’s tracks left me pleasantly surprised.
Amidst the annual Super Bowl buzz, audiences were gifted with the first look at the return of Netflix’s hit sci-fi series, “Stranger Things.” Although the trailer for the second season lasted only 30 seconds, it was packed with a myriad of clues for eager fans to pick apart in anticipation of the official release on Halloween.
