We may find ourselves interested in something that others consider weird, odd or unusual. It could be a hobby, activity, or even a devotion. Impact’s Auriel Thompson delves into some of the unusual devotions on Michigan State’s campus.

Gary Harris has decided to leave MSU and enter the 2014 NBA Draft, but was it the right decision? The Pact opens with a discussion and debate on the departure of Spartan basketball’s superstar.
The NHL playoffs are set to begin, and the Detroit Red Wings are preparing to faceoff against the President Trophy Winners, Boston Bruins. Can Detroit put the pieces together just in time to beat the NHL’s best regular season team? Austin and Fino say yes, but Lou is not so sure.
In the final portion of the show, the group dissects the Tigers’ opening ten games. Is it too early to panic about Detroit’s bullpen? What does Joe Nathan’s “dead arm” really mean? Will Dombrowski make a trade? Are we all overthinking it with 152 games left?
Tune in to The Pact every Monday from 7-8 p.m. on 88.9FM or listen live online at impact89fm.org/sports.

I can’t think of a better way to welcome in the spring than with a Tycho concert. For an artist whose brand of dreamy electronica combined with a west coast vibe elicits images of sandy beaches and surfing, there really are few acts that can bring in the elated joy the first days of spring evoke. It was an especially lukewarm spring day, a slight breeze coasting by the car as my friend and I headed out towards The Crofoot, sharing e-cigs and jamming out to some downtempo IDM. When we arrived at the parking structure, I caught a glance at a sunset, looking like an exact match of Dive’s album cover in a moment of coincidental beauty. It seemed as if the entirety of Spring was pointing towards a wonderful concert experience.
We’re celebrating the return of warm weather with concert giveaways! Tonight on The Afterglow you can tune in for your chance to win tickets to Beats Antique, Toubab Krewe, and the Polish Ambassador at Section Live. Hold ‘up, not so fast…we’re also giving away tickets to see The Werks at the Loft on Wednesday, April 16th!
What say you, weekend warriors?
