If you’re a hip-hop fan, you’ve probably been wondering where KOXY’s love for rap has been. It’s arrived.
Saturday, April 13, KOXY will present Twin Cities rapper Kristoff Krane. The show is all ages and completely free!
Kristoff Krane released his fourth album last summer, and is constantly pushing the envelope in terms of lyrical content and sound. He’s worked with indie rap artists such as Sage Francis, Atmosphere, Eyedea, Sadistik, and Carnage the Executioner. In addition to music from his studio albums, his live show features improvisational jam sessions, experimental rap freestyles, and tons of audience interaction.
Check out his music at: http://kristoffkrane.bandcamp.com/. Most of his albums are free downloads!!
The show will feature student openers from our own Spoken Word Club. Exact lineup of student poets TBD, but you can expect members of our slam poetry team! A second student opener (rap artist) is TBD. Stay tuned for opener info!
****THIS SHOW IS OPEN TO THE PUBLIC. UP TO 75 NON-STUDENTS MAY PRE-REGISTER TO ATTEND THE SHOW HERE: https://docs.google.com/a/oxy.edu/forms/d/1wVtzCl-NqfVWKo_L-_TxQpfwOMKTV6x32CN-DFTSWgk/viewform

The Silver Lake Chorus, singing original songs written for their group by some alternative/indie big names like those in this post title, is coming to perform at Occidental next week.
A collective of singers from around the Los Angeles (and obviously mostly Silver Lake) area, the Silver Lake Chorus is a nationally acclaimed choir. On Friday, February 1, TSLC will be performing some old favorites and some of their brand new music. The show will begin at 8:30pm, and also feature Occidental student band Peaceful Antelopus opening.
Don’t miss this! It will be a very pleasant, entertaining and engaging way to spend your Friday evening. The show is entirely open to the public, so any and all are welcome. There’s free parking surrounding the campus.

It has been a great semester for us here at Occidental, what with Ceremony, Titus Andronicus, and locals Manhattan Murder Mystery… nothing short of spectacular. Fortunately enough for us, the never-ending punk semester is not going to end without a bang. Or another bang, because Titus and Ceremony were f’ing rad.
My friends, the radness must not end now. This November 30th we at KOXY are bringing to you another show to rock the ages. Two local up-and-coming bands that are currently dominating the LA scene (IMO) are coming here, to the Cooler, to blow your f’ing mind.
First up: Luna Is Honey, self-described as “My Bloody Valentine covering Prince in the stars.” Accurate enough, as their music is the audio equivalent of taking an ice-cream bubble bath on the moon, on smack.
Next up: Bastidas!, or the coolest jungle-punk noise act you’ve ever seen. Think surf-rock, but you don’t know how to surf, you’re on LSD, and a great white shark is ripping your body to shreds.
I love these bands. I first saw them at the Smell a few months ago, and fell in love. I know you will love them too, even if you think they’re too loud. Come to the Cooler on Friday the 30th, and be blown away by what LA punk has to offer these days.
