  • Repairing the Family
    By Jay Grummel Earlier this month I wrote about fond families, however the holidays are made up of many different types of families. Some will be hostile and dysfunctional or some will be loving and understanding. Whatever your family looks like this season, it’s always nice to read about ones other than your own. So, […]
  • Review of The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes
    Let’s time-travel to the year 2012 and the world is raving about none other than Katniss Everdeen. I remember being in elementary school, begging my mother to let me dress up as her for my birthday. Now it’s over ten years later and I’m still just as excited for the new movie as I was […]

Bands: Quadstock beckons

With the deadline for local bands to submit demo tapes approaching, students are busy planning and promoting the second annual Quadstock.

Aspiring to make this year’s event bigger and better than last year, the planning committee hopes to have the headline band chosen at the beginning of next month, with all submissions by local bands due March 18.

The event, which is to be held April 23, will consist of five to six local bands and one headliner. The show will take place on the Alumni Mall, the lawn between Harshman and Kreischer residence halls. This year, the committee plans to have free food and refreshments with the possibility of prizes and giveaways.

Last year’s Quadstock, deemed as “a celebration of rock and community,” featured the headliner band Marcy Playground, with 11 local bands also playing. About 1,000 people attended the event even though it was raining all day.

“We’re hoping for better weather and that more people would attend,” said committee member Cara Turner.

This year, committee members would like to encourage campus-wide participation in planning the event, said Adam Combs, Harshman graduate hall director.

“This year it’s a community wide event, not just the quads,” he said.

The event is free and open to the entire campus and Bowling Green community.

The planning committees are currently seeking local sponsors for food and monetary contributions for the event. They are also deciding on what headliner will play this year.

“The band is selected by area and price range fitting. We’re working through their booking agents to find the most appealing performer for our audience,” Turner said.

The idea for Quadstock was simply a collaboration of similar ideas, Turner said.

“Last year all the hall councils had been thinking about having concerts and we decided to put on one big concert together and we combined our ideas and it went really well,” she said.

The event was a good way to work together as a campus community, said committee member Drew Cekada.

“It ended up being something to bond the quads really well,” he added.

Several residence hall councils have donated to the event, and organizations campus-wide, including UAO are also involved with the project.

“It’s been exciting to work on and we had a small group last year that worked good and we’re just trying to reach more people this year,” said committee member Kristy Headley.

Students shouldn’t have any excuses not to come to the free event, Turner said.

“How many times do you get a free all day concert and be able to relax before exams?” she said.
