Before Thanksgiving, have Friendsgiving
Posted: November 20, 2014 - 2:00 am

Before you go home for Thanksgiving to see your (hopefully not bickering) family, the best way to pre-celebrate is by having Friendsgiving with your (again, hopefully not bickering) friend family in your dorm. I mean, you’ve probably seen these people naked in those (awful) communal showers. The least you can do is share a dinner.

Gainesville band brings soul to The Atlantic for album release
Posted: November 13, 2014 - 2:00 am

When I saw The Savants of Soul live back in June, it was clear to me that they were determined to bring the feel of 1950s and ‘60s soul music to 2014 and beyond. Whether the band has three members, 12 members, or its current 10, it’s likely only a matter of time before its blaring horns, raspy vocals and catchy instrumentals reach your ears and make you get up and groove.
