Faculty concert showcases masterful choreography and preparations

The past weekend has definitely been an art-filled extravaganza for the city of Madison. Between NoName at the Orpheum, the start of the FoodFight Foodie Week and many other events in the area both large and small, there was ample entertainment for all the Madison communities. Among them included the annual dance department faculty concert titled “Neither East Nor West,” held in the Doubler performance space of Lathrop Hall. Dance department students performed works choreographed by some of the university’s most renowned professors, and the audiences were, without a doubt, impressed.


Wisconsin Hip-Hop Fest features talented local artists

For the second consecutive year, the Majestic Theatre hosted the Wisconsin Hip-Hop Fest, with clear satisfaction from the artists, organizers and fans. The concert featured a strong lineup of performers from both the Madison and Milwaukee area, including the headlining set from popular artist WebsterX. Each artist infused a full-house Majestic Theatre with growing excitement as stragglers continued to file in well into the show. Every beat, bar, chant and stomp kept the show riveting to say the least, with ample moments worthy of highlighting.

Dina Nina Martinez owns the stage

In the basement of The Brink Lounge, in a space distinguished from the large club-like room where noticeably mature guests drank and danced to a live band, Dina Nina Martinez gave a striking performance to an intimate crowd.


HopCat proves welcome addition to Madison nightlife

I finally paid a visit to Madison’s new restaurant and bar, HopCat. The establishment finished construction over the summer, opening July 17, and is already a successful business with six other locations. I wasn’t sure what to expect prior to making a visit, but I heard consistent hype about it so I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to have my own experience. Based on my experience, this new addition to the collection of downtown bars in Madison is in for a long, successful service to the Badger community.

Mac Miller and openers energizes sold-out Orpheum Theater

The Orpheum Theater was full of excitement as Mac Miller and his three opening acts took the stage by storm Saturday. As expected, the sold-out crowd packed the Orpheum. Before the doors opened, early guests lined the sidewalk for more than two blocks, and when the doors finally opened, people packed the first floor and balcony so tightly that no one could take a step or raise their hands without bumping the next spectator. The stage was set up with two DJ tables and a large centered alarm clock with Mac Miller’s new album name, GO:OD AM. On the sides were posters of his album cover photo, depicting Mac Miller’s obnoxiously yawning face. Rappers The Come-Up Boys, Domo Genesis and GoldLink, each partnered with their own DJ, revved the audience with a plethora of bass-bumping singles. And Mac Miller most certainly made the concert a highlight of the University of Wisconsin-Madison homecoming weekend.
