Student band, Avenue Icon, releases first project

Brendon Porter leans across the bench we’re sitting on, unlocks his phone and turns the screen toward me. He opens a messaging app, the keyboard pops up and he glides a finger across it, random words appear in the text box. “I did this and it came up with two different words and they were […]

Modern hitchhiking: ride-share apps

As a rider, when you think of a major perk of ridesharing apps, chances are you may think practicality. No car, no money for gas, no desire to drive — whatever the case, it’s no problem when companies like Uber and Lyft exist. The convenience of the app has Sandra Acton, 41, a local resident, […]

The high-profile nominations of Beyonce, Drake, Kanye West, Chance the Rapper and other industry leaders at the 59th annual ceremony are not surprising. But a former R&B starlet, […]

Fresh new tunes

            The Libertines – Anthems for the Doomed Youth Not much has changed about The Libertines’ style since their last album, 2004’s The Libertines. They still have the same youthful flair, the same simplistic garage rock sensibilities, and the same vulnerabilities when it comes to frontmen Doherty and Barât. It […]
