Album Review: Quadra by Sepultura

Posted by WUSC Public Affairs on February 15, 2020

By Schuler Their 35 years on the metal spectrum have seen Sepultura mutate and progress further and further away from the death-thrash roots with which they made their bones in the late 80s and early 90s. While this isn’t entirely uncommon for veteran acts, what’s impressive is that Sepultura have managed to do it—and do […]

Underrated Artist: Danny and Alex

Posted by WUSC Public Affairs on February 15, 2020

By Noelle Shortreed // DJ Scuba Steve  Danny Scordato and Alex Merrill are a pop-funk duo based in St. Petersburg, Florida.

Posted by WUSC Public Affairs on February 12, 2020

By Max Patterson On February 10th, two of my friends and I went to see Poppy at the Underground in Charlotte for her I Disagree tour. For those unfamiliar with Poppy’s youtube presence (a surreal, ASMR-riddled experience), Poppy’s discography would be a good place to jump into the strange rabbit hole, given that it is […]

Touching down at the Senate, following the unfortunate closing of Greenville’s the Firmament, the Moon Dot crew brought some serious firepower with them to make for an electrifying night of music.

AJJ CONCERT REVIEW

Posted by WUSC Public Affairs on February 6, 2020

by Hadley Schaffer About a year ago, I stumbled across a weird band called AJJ (formerly Andrew Jackson Jihad). I thought one of their albums (People Who Can Eat People Are The Luckiest People In The World) had a funny name, so I decided to give it a listen. I instantly fell in love. Their […]
