Unknown Music Scene: Lafayette

As Purdue students, we are surrounded by so many activities that the university offers us. Between Purdue Convocations and PMO, there’s always something going on around campus. But what if you’re looking for something local? Does local music exist in the Lafayette area?

The answer is yes.

Lafayette has an impressive local music selection that most people have no idea exists. From local bands that play live music to sponsored and supported musical groups, the Lafayette area has a lot to offer it’s residence.

An upcoming event you may want to look into:

Saturday, March 7th: The Joe Marcinek Band featuring Rob Dixon on saxophone and, Scott Pazera on Bass. White Vinyl Sky will be performing an opening acoustic set.

The Superbowl may be something, but so is that halftime show.

Year after year we crowd together in front of a TV screen to watch the famous Super Bowl showdown between the two top NFL teams of the year. But why do we do it? Is it for the love of the game? The hilarious commercials? The good company? The extravagant halftime performances?

What ever your reasoning is, you’ll most likely enjoy more than just one of those parts that make the whole Super Bowl Sunday experience.

hi-res-d5a9d7aae37365bc523a2a1bd1e67125_crop_northIn honor of Super Bowl Sunday, I bring you the 10 Best Super Bowl Halftime Shows and in case you missed this years show, enjoy a recap of Katy Perry’s performance. Perry’s performance may have been a little more colorful than most, but was still a success with the combined talents of Lenny Kravitz and Missy Elliott.
