East coast gears up for star-studded Meadows Festival
This year on the east coast, the most hyped music festival was Governors Ball Music Festival on Randall’s Island in New York City. With headliners like The Strokes, The Killers and Kanye West, it seemed like an easy decision for music fans with the means of attending in the big apple. Well, you know what they say about the best-laid plans of mice and men. Thunderstorms rolled into the city causing the cancellation of the final day of the festival, leaving thousands devastated as they were unable to see some incredible acts like Vince Staples, Courtney Barnett and the headliner, Kanye West.

The Dirty Heads provide solid open for Sublime with Rome
Even if you think you haven’t heard of the band the Dirty Heads, you’ve probably heard their stuff. When asking my friends if they knew of them, some said no originally until I asked if they knew the songs “Lay Me Down” or “Stand Tall,” which they did.

In her bag: Co-op edition
Since September, I have been working at Harper’s Bazaar magazine for my cooperative education. As a full time fashion market intern, my duties include communicating with in-house brands and public relations companies on sample returns, maintaining the overall organization of the ready-to-wear fashion closet, assisting on set for photo shoots and supporting the editors on daily tasks. In short, my co-op is constantly keeping me busy and on my feet. As I conclude my co-op next month, I began to realize how the items in my bag had changed since I left Drexel University and moved to New York City. Here is an insight of what I bring to work every day in my bag.

DiCaprio leads pack with ‘Wolf’
In their fifth collaboration, Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio team up for “The Wolf of Wall Street,” a movie that makes “The Great Gatsby” look like a kid’s birthday party at Chuck E. Cheese’s. Released Dec. 25, the biographical dark comedy was adapted from a memoir of the same name by Jordan Belfort, a former New York stockbroker who made millions of dollars in the late 1980s and early ‘90s through securities fraud, stock market manipulation and worthless penny stocks. After his first family-friendly film, 2011’s “Hugo” (his personal love letter to moviemaking), Scorsese returns to perfect R-rated form by drawing themes and storytelling tactics from “Goodfellas ” and “Casino.” With the screenplay written by “Boardwalk Empire” creator Terence Winter, the final result is a riotously funny satire of American capitalism (and the hedonistic lifestyles we all wish we could live) that is both offensive and provocative.

Tony-winning show comes to Philly
College students may not be the largest demographic filling up seats at the Walnut Street Theatre, but for the venue’s run of “In The Heights,” they certainly should be. The musical premiered on Broadway in 2008, racking up four Tony Awards from 13 nominations. It was also nominated for the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, and won a Grammy Award for the Best Musical Show Album. These claims to fame might get the die-hard musical lover or theater geek to the show, but the truth is that “In The Heights” is a great musical experience for everyone, especially those who have never seen one or would rather avoid them altogether.

‘Koch’ documetary tells life story of former enigmatic New York mayor
“How’m I doin’?” This was the trademark catchphrase of Edward Irving Koch, the colorful character who served three consecutive terms as the 105th mayor of New York City from 1978 to 1989. In his phenomenal new documentary, “Koch,” Neil Barsky explores the life and times of the larger-than-life Jewish mayor who helped bring recovery to a city that was “on the balls of its ass.” Barsky, a former journalist for the Wall Street Journal and New York Daily News, was also a Wall Street analyst and hedge fund manager who retired in 2009. He soon decided to begin making documentaries due to the financially crippled state of print journalism.
