  • 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 […]

Rooted Truth performs at Pub for senior night, Tuesday

Jim Brown will drum the night away with local band Rooted Truth — senior night, that is.

This Tuesday, The Key yearbook staff is planning a senior night at the Black Swamp Pub. The event is free to all seniors that get their pictures taken for the yearbook.

“It’s a good celebration for everyone,” Brown said, a senior at the University. “It’s a good idea to have a celebration halfway through our senior year.”

It is a celebration that will hopefully entice seniors to get portraits said Dan Stypa, academic section editor for the yearbook. In addition to seeing Rooted Truth, senior night will have free food and a cash bar available to seniors.

So far, the event is going “very good” compared to three years ago, according to photographer Jim McAdams. While he has taken 200 portraits for this year’s Key, he said the turnout could be better.

“I don’t feel it’s helping,” McAdams said of the senior night promotion. The number of seniors getting their pictures taken is down this year from the previous two years.

Perhaps the promotion is underperforming because Rooted Truth is still working on getting its name out.

“We thought it would be a good experience to play in Bowling Green because it would be a good opportunity to play for the students,” Brown said.

In spreading the word about their funk rock sound, Rooted Truth played at local bars and restaurants in Toledo last summer.

“We have some songs on our website,” Brown said, adding that a CD will likely be released by the end of winter. The band’s website is at

After senior night at the pub, Rooted Truth’s next appearance will be at Club Rain in Toledo on Nov. 19.

Brown urged seniors to come and support his band. “Get your picture in the yearbook and come out and celebrate,” he said.
