Concert Review: Impact’s Free Show

Down the corridor and through the winding and curving halls of SnyPhi lies one of the greatest little secret stages that MSU has to offer. Inside the venue itself is a set-up that allows for quaint and up-close performances that is perfect for an intimate show. This show in particular was extremely intimate; the set-up was created to showcase not only the bands that were performing but also the Impacters and many others that came to enjoy the live music. The stage was set-up with the performers inches away from the crowd, which enhanced the music-going experience.

The night began with a little bit of McCarthy and the Red Scare. Although it was the band’s first performance before a big crowd they rocked the house with a few favorites from their recent releases. In between sets of each band there was the constant chatter between Impacters new and old, as well as new comers who wanted to catch a glimmer of this new music. This helped the event to flow easily as everyone began to get a sense of belonging with other.

Weekday Wrap Up

Are classes over? Can it be? Here are the tracks and artists that got us Impacters through the last week of classes.

Music Review-Content Relations Director Eric Finkler
So I’ve been into Andrew Jackson Jihad for the past several years, but generally stuck to two albums. This week I’ve begun exploring their entire discography and am continuously surprised at the vulnerability they display with each song. From lyrics that discuss a petrifying fear of hurting others to songs focused on the evil and good aspects of humans. AJJ delves into the dark side of humanity like in the song, “Bad Bad Things,” (a song narrated by a man in the process of murdering a family) but can bring you back up with the song, “People,” that praises humanity for being a beautiful thing despite all the darkness that comes alongside it.
