From the creators of The Bacchanal Educational Playlist, we present to you Bwog’s Ultimate Pregame Playlist. Whether you’re pregaming Bacchanal or 1020, these are some basic, versatile songs to get LIT to (don’t worry, I hate that I just used that phrase too).

The Presidential Scholars in Society and Neuroscience kicked off this year’s series of seminars with “Music and Meaning,” a seminar designed to examine the ways we find meaning in music from an interdisciplinary perspective. Bwogger Ramisa was there. The seminar began with a welcome from Pamela Smith, Professor of History and Chair of the Presidential […]
Bwog is a fan of music, as you may tell from our frequent playlists. We don’t often include classical music on those playlists but, maybe we should? Last night, new bwogger Tamara Barriot headed to the Miller Theater to check out renowned American composer Steve Reich (soon-to-turn 80!) with the group Ensemble Signals. What she heard […]
Bwog loves good music. We love good music reviews, too. Last night, we sent Ross Chapman to Miller Theater, to cover a concert with French composer Francesca Verunelli.

Illegally lighting up your menorah is one thing, but what about sneaking a Christmas tree into your dorm? Bwog knows just how important holiday traditions are, and we’ve got you covered.

Opening for them will be two student bands: Blue Holidæ (mellow jams) […]
Deep in the abyss of John Jay Hall, a star is born. Just kidding, she was born in 1997. However, her highly-anticipated EP, Blood Girl, was not. In fact, Blood Girl was birthed from the fiery womb of creativity just about one month after its creator, Rachel Roth, arrived on Columbia’s campus. Rachel Roth, who […]
