Justin Timberlake is thankfully back on the radar in promotion of his already blogged-to-death third studio album, “The 20/20 Experience,” out March 19. This media tour brought him to “Saturday Night Live” March 9, where he donned a tofu suit, reunited with Lonely Island partner Andy Samberg and was inducted into the “five-timers club.” His [...]
Finals week officially begins March 18 on Drexel University’s campus, and the days and weeks leading up to it pit many students against a bevy of papers, exams and group projects. After all, this is the university that asks students to “Live it 24/7,” where a term is just 10 weeks and the next one [...]
Much about Drexel’s Homecoming Dance Party 2013, held Jan. 26 in the Armory, was out of the ordinary — most notably Drexel Traditions’ decision to bill its widest-known performer, Waka Flocka Flame, as the first headlining act of the night. The rapper’s performance began at roughly 8:30 p.m., when about 100 students were still waiting [...]
I’m a firm believer that every music lover should develop a bucket list of shows they absolutely must see before they disappear into the ether. Live music has a way of elevating and refreshing an artist’s source material, uniting people through intimate emotions expressed in song. It’s pretty freaking magical. Unfortunately, my list is largely [...]
I’m generally a fan of bands with curse words in their name. They’re unapologetic, rowdy and just seem to have more fun. They let you know right off the bat that they’re not going to play by the rules, and rest assured, their music won’t either. Last week, by the grace of the surf-punk gods, [...]
Too often a word or phrase is adopted into a vernacular and relentlessly abused to the point that it loses all meaning and takes respite in the dark crevices of our brains, safe from all light and common sense. Such was the case for the term “cult comedy,” which never stood a chance amid the [...]
On more than one occasion in “Skyfall,” James Bond (Daniel Craig) obediently returns to M (Judi Dench) after an intense brush with death, only to have her fire off her famous line: “Where the hell have you been?” It’s a question audiences have been asking since 2008, when the hackneyed “Quantum of Solace” premiered, putting [...]
A $10 million gift to Drexel University will soon transform a portion of the 3500 block of Spring Garden Street into a community center that will offer local residents science, technology, engineering and mathematics education programs; digital access; and healthy living education, as announced Oct. 4 by President John A. Fry. Construction of The Dana [...]
When you’re one of the biggest bands from the ’90s, the golden age of alternative music, and you’re staging a comeback in 2012, it’s helpful not to look your age. Luckily, No Doubt has lead singer Gwen Stefani, the ageless Marilyn Monroe-esque ska punk rocker who looks just as good today as she did when [...]
To promote an upcoming album, some bands do press junkets, make television appearances and star in Target commercials. But that’s not very rock ’n’ roll compared to say a massive meltdown during an iHeartRadio set in Las Vegas. That’s what Green Day’s Billy Joe Armstrong decided to do when his band’s set was cut short [...]
Migrations of freshmen, transfer students and their parents descended upon Drexel University the week of Sept. 17 in a housing blitz even larger than last year’s, which challenged University Housing once again to take measures to accommodate an overflow of students. However, according to director of University Housing Joe Russo, the process ran relatively smoothly [...]
It was in the car, on the way back from a weekend getaway, that I first heard a song from Passion Pit’s sophomore album “Gossamer” on the radio. My roommate turned on Radio 104.5, and it took me a second before I realized what I was hearing. The chanting of children and the thumping synths [...]
The name Frank Ocean probably didn’t mean anything to you before last year, when Kanye West and Jay-Z caught wind of the R&B powerhouse and asked him to collaborate on two “Watch the Throne” tracks. Ocean gave the album its heat, and “No Church in the Wild” remains one of my favorite modern hip-hop tracks. [...]
Let’s face it: Americans aren’t as informed as they used to be. In an era where Kanye and Kim pervade headlines and CNN misreports vital news such as the Supreme Court’s ruling on Obamacare, it’s hard to trust the media when establishing one’s worldview. “The Newsroom” is a fresh television drama on HBO starring Jeff [...]
New technologies continue to evolve the medical field, and the Drexel Student Health Center is at the front with its QuiqMeds Onsite Digital Pharmacy, a device the center acquired in January that fills a patient’s prescription in seconds, streamlining the University’s student health care process. The machine, essentially a secure vending machine stocked with the [...]
Stan Wright After much anticipation, students preparing for fall-winter co-op were notified of the A-round interviews they were granted May 31 at midnight. For those awaiting their second or third co-op, the process has likely been business as usual. But it is a little more complicated for freshmen who aren’t from the Philadelphia area, [...]
Norah Jones seems to have a rubric for expressing heartache and melancholia. Creating simple, soothing yet lovelorn songs has made her a pillar of jazz and blues music. With her latest album, “Little Broken Hearts,” Jones slightly tweaks her sound as she croons about what she knows best. Singer/songwriter Norah Jones released her fifth album [...]
Sam Sparro, the Australian musician whose electro-funk hit single “Black & Gold” made waves back in 2008, visited Philadelphia for the first time April 23 to perform at World Cafe Live in front of a small but enthusiastic crowd. Sparro rocked an ivory coat, retro wayfarers and his finely groomed mustache during the performance, which [...]
George Tsetsekos, R. John Chapel Dean of the LeBow College of Business, will resign from his post at the end of the academic year after a decade of service, as announced April 16 in a University press release. Tsetsekos felt that he has accomplished all the goals he set for the college during his time [...]
