PLRLS & The Hall Monitors 11/9 McGuire Hall

Wednesday, November 8th, 2017 by The Professor

This Thursday night marks the return of the amazing PLRLS to McGuire Hall. With a blend of punk, new wave, and a bit of sass, they’ll keep you jumping all show. From “Rose Garden” to “Look at the Nerds” there’s a bit of Talking Heads, a bit of Devo, a dash of Joe Jackson and some pop punk thrown in. As a bonus we’ll also have the great classic garage rock sounds of The Hall Monitors to keep you moving for another hour! The Hall Monitors bring us straight up fuzzed out classic 60s garage rock sounds. Everything they play should be on a slightly scratchy 45rpm 7″ record in every jukebox. Check out “She’s My Methodone” on their Bandcamp page for a sample of their style.

Check out the newest album from PLRLS on their website, or the single “Oh What a World” (aka “Worldstar”) below. And don’t forget to join us in McGuire Hall from 8-10pm on Thursday November 9th!

Rocky Horror Picture Show On The Quad! 10/26 8pm

Wednesday, October 25th, 2017 by Lindsey Zapata

WLOY will be presenting Rocky Horror Picture Show once again! Come to the Quad (or McGuire Hall if the weather is bad) and be transported into this strange, but energizing movie. The movie is so crazy that imdb.com could not provide more of an summary than “a couple has a breakdown in an isolated area.” And if you ever been alone with someone for an extended amount of time, you know exactly how wild things can get. The production is meant to be a satire on both science fiction and horror movies, which yields an unexplainable combination as gender play and madness take their toll. There are no words that can do this production justice and for that reason I suggest you come check it out for yourself. We’ll be giving the event the WLOY touch and be offering giveaways to the best costumes! So stop by the Quad on Thursday from 8-10pm.  If you know the movie, or want to pretend you did all along, feel free to come in costume and act along, or read up on the audience responses. Participation is highly encouraged!
