This Friday the Social Programming Board (the new umbrella organization which includes groups like Team 31 and The Gargoyle Committee) will bring up and coming producer Blood Diamonds to on campus venue The Gargoyle. The pseudonym of 21 year old, L.A.
If you’re feeling a little bit of deja vu right now, you’re not mistaken. Almost five months ago, Student Life ran a small preview for the fourth season of NBC’s comedy underdog “Community,” a show centered on a study group of misfits at a subpar community college.
After the 2010 release of their debut album “Gorilla Manor,” Los Angeles-based band Local Natives was ascribed quickly to the crowded musical landscape of indie pop. Critics couldn’t help the comparisons; Grizzly Bear-esque soundscapes backing lush Fleet Foxes-style harmonies with a Best Coast vibe.
