It’s the return of everyone’s favorite recurring event! Groove in the Glen is officially back this Friday night, 9/5.
Location: THE GLEN (Sycamore Glen)
**For all the newbies: what is groove?**
Groove at The Glen is an interactive event held in Sycamore Glen, featuring art projects/pieces open to participation, and a stage for the incredibly talented arts community at and beyond Oxy that has struggled with finding a performance space. We have put together this event for just that: a place for students to come together to enjoy and create visual/musical/performance arts.
For this edition of Groove KOXY presents…
Join KOXY this Saturday on Stewie Beach for our Springfest Pre-show featuring LA reggae kings The Lions!
*FREE* *NO WRISTBAND REQUIRED* *OXY+1*
Inspired by reggae, sound system culture and the myriad of musical styles influenced by Jamaican music old and new, The Lions’ sound is firmly placed in soul music.
“All the guys in The Lions grew up on classic Jamaican records so since we began we have wanted to give our records that same edge and roughness that we grew up hearing on LPs by The Upsetters, Soul Syndicate, The Rockers Band and Roots Radics. The rhythm section was all recorded to tape, the Hammond buzzed a little, fuses blew and good mistakes were left in. We basically made the dusty reggae soul LP WE have been wanting to hear for years.” – Dan Ubick (producer)
“Like Daniel, I would step into The Lions’ den for this sound! Yes they are fierce – the kings of the jungle” – Jeremy Sole, KCRW
The video for The Lions single “This Generation”:
The KOXY stage also presents student hip-hop DJ Tyler Ollanik Music as well as an all-vinyl KOXY DJ set! Check the link below for his amazing beats.

Faithful KOXY listeners and lovers: we’ve got a busy month ahead of us. Therefore you should never feel bored because we’ve got plenty of stuff going on.
Saturday, March 22, 2-4PM: OXYLYMPICS!! Programming Board presents Oxy’s very own Olympics. Located in the Greek Bowl, there will be a decathlon of events for a few different prizes. Why are we talking about it?? We’re DJing! Go compete or spectate, and get excited about the fresh tuneage that we’ll be providing.
10:30PM-1:30AM: ASOC Senate is hosting an after-hours Dance Pro after party in Sycamore Glen. A bunch of student DJs will be showcasing their stuff with some help from KOXY. After watching everyone dance, come get down with us.
Friday, March 28, 8PM-???!?: Groove at the Glen is back with a bag of new tricks to guarantee a rowdy night of good, clean fun. Held in Sycamore Glen, as usual, there will be music, art projects, and PIZZA. Come early for the pizza, guys. And stay late for the rad music! Starting at 9PM, we’ll have student band (featuring some of our staff), Campus Security, tearing it down like a groovy beach party. At 10PM, we’ve got Moonlight Trio, a “cumbia-billy” (yes, a hybrid of Cumbia and Rockabilly) band that won’t disappoint. To end it all, we’ve got student DJ act Hotel Garuda to ensure that everyone will dance until they can’t anymore…or until Campo shuts us down (which they shouldn’t). Come ready to munch delicious pizza and boogie for an eternity.
