After over two years of negotiations, the GWC-UAW Local 2110 bargaining committee and University officials have created a draft for Columbia’s first graduate worker contract.
Exciting news from our friends at Bacchanal. On April 15th, they’re teaming up with CU Records to hold a battle of the bands competition in order to select the opening act for this year’s spring concert. You have until midnight on March 18th to submit a recorded track, or arrange to audition live. The only […]
Late-breaking news for music fans: Talib Kweli will be part of this year’s Bacchanal. A tipster noted earlier today that his website listed a show at Columbia on April 18th, and Bacchanal board members confirmed this evening that the MC will be one of the artists. No word was forthcoming, though, on who the other […]
Do like music and stuff? Well if you do, you’re in luck cause this week CMJ Music Marathon returns to NYC. The marathon features over 1,000 bands almost all with peculiar names. Columbians probably have a slightly distorted perspective on the difficulty of making it in today’s music world due to the providential success of […]
Did you know that this very University is the chosen educational institution of many famous people besides Vampire Weekend? It’s true! The New York Daily News and one Perez Hilton-reading commenter (who is probably glad commenting is anonymous) are reporting that ex-model Christy Turlington is enrolled at Columbia to study maternal and child health. Plus, […]
It’s time for our exciting first look at NSOP 2008! Seems as if this year’s festivities will not include the traditional Orientation Concert on the Steps. You’ll recall that last year Clipse performed with the World Famous Vampire Weekend. A Columbia Concerts insider explained that it’s “not entirely clear” why there’s no concert, only that […]
The lineup for Barnard Radio’s annual outdoor BBQ and concert has been announced in an email from Milano Chowkwanyun, the Co-Promotions Director of WBAR. The show will take place on Friday, April 25th (on Barnard’s lawn, Nexus be damned) and will feature the following: Wizards of the Coast Bear Food Will Win the War Liturgy […]
Eschewing their own tradition of booking hip hop acts for spring, Columbia Concerts has booked awesome Brooklyn-based indie rockers Grizzly Bear and awesome Brooklyn-based indie rockers The National for this year’s Spring Concert. An anonymous source also informs Bwog that this year’s Spring Concert will also differ from last year’s because it’s going to be […]
A month after GQ featured Vampire Weekend, once again a Columbia alum is profiled in the men’s mag. This time, it’s blonde blogger and prospective first-daughter Meghan McCain, CC ’07. It’s an odd interview, as even the writer—who happens to be the deputy online editor at The New Republic—admits. Initially, McCain treats the readers to […]
For careful listeners, the best soundtrack on campus is the rotation of Vampire Weekend, Radiohead and other indie darlings at Cafe 212. Bwog cultural correspondent Merrell Hambleton sits down with the man behind the mix. I find Café 212 manager Robert Bell working to hang up two small bulletin boards. “I’m actually doing something with […]
Columbia is more than just “Upper West Side Soweto.” Chromeo’s performance at Bowery Ballroom Monday night showed off the cheekier side of Ivy League music. Despite the recent flurry of hype surrounding Vampire Weekend, they are not the only Columbia-related band selling out Bowery Ballroom. Chromeo anyone? A French grad student and T.A. by day, […]
Last night, a Columbia band called The Stolen Cars played a show at the Lower East Side bar Fontana’s. Bwog ventured 45 minutes south-east to catch them play with five other bands as part of a larger battle of the bands-type competition. The all-Columbia, all-Beta Theta Pi band is composed of John Luna (SEAS […]
