“She said always remember, never to trust me. She said that the first night that she met me. She said there’s going to come a time where I’m going to have to go, with whoever’s going to get me the highest” Craig Finn, front man for the band The Hold Steady sings this lyric to open up they’re...

Cameron’s Corner, The Replacements

November 18, 2016

The Twin Cities have always been a hot bed for music of all genres. The city’s scene has created musicians such as Doomtree, Soul Asylum, The Hold Steady, and of course, Prince. There is a stereotype that comes with your identity if you are from Minnesota. It is believed that musically we only listen...

New Politics sold-out

Cameron Campbell, Staff Writer

November 8, 2016

In the music world today, sometimes it is hard to find a band that’s unique and special. It’s even harder to find a band that fuses two genres of music together and does it well. In 2009, a band called New Politics from Copenhagen, Denmark formed and released their first full length album (self-titled)...

Pat the Bunny, “Probably Nothing Possibly Everything”

November 4, 2016

It’s hard to go wrong with a musician who refers to himself as “Pat the Bunny.”  The man behind this intriguing stage name is folk punk musician Pat Schneeweis. Pat, best known as Pat the Bunny, got his start playing folk punk in Arizona playing random house parties and on the street. Folk...

Hollerado, the most interesting little band

Cameron Campbell, Staff Writer

November 1, 2016

In my opinion, Hollerado is by far the most interesting small venue band to come out of Canada in awhile. Founded in 2007 by four men from Ottawa, Ontario, the band would soon embark on a very attention-grabbing approach to the music world. In 2007 the band released their first full-length album, “R...

The Ghost Inside, still swinging

Cameron Campbell, Opinion writer

October 25, 2016

Some people may say that hardcore music is an acquired taste. This riff heavy, aggressive genre is something that may turn a lot of people away before ever taking a chance to listen to the lyrics beneath the surface. However, for me, there is one band in particular that really steps away from the gene...

Cameron’s Corner, “Revolution Radio” back on top

Cameron Campbell, Staff Writer

October 23, 2016

Living in North Dakota we have all seen the kid who loses an edge while ice skating and can’t get back up. People keep their eyes on them at all times as they stumble from where they once stood strong. This is Green Day. After “American Idiot” they slumped and musically couldn’t get it together. No...

Cameron’s Corner: The Clash’s “London Calling”

Cameron Campbell, Opinion writer

October 14, 2016

No other band has ever stood out more to me than The Clash. Especially their 1979 classic punk album, “London Calling.” The Clash consisted of four English punks signed to CBS records in 1977 after playing very few shows and little to no actual headlining gigs. They soon would become one of, or ma...

Cage the Elephant are one of the biggest bands in the alternative indie rock scene. They became popular after releasing their first album with hit songs such as “Ain’t No Rest for the Wicked” and “In One Ear”. After that, the band then started to gain more traction by avoiding their sophomore sl...

Cameron’s Corner: Reviewing Bowie

October 4, 2016

2016 has seen the world lose many great icons — from actors and actresses, sports stars to musicians. The affect has been felt everywhere. To me, there was no larger shock than the news that came on January 10, 2016. The news that David Bowie had died after losing a battle with cancer. David Bowi...
