By Donald Moran Aly & A.J. appeared at The Wellmont Theater, promoting their latest album “Sanctuary” on May 14th, to ¾ full house of mostly college-aged women, excited to see the former Disney teen stars live. The opening act “The Armors” was an energetic, 90’s/ Early 2K- style band, offering a menu of Wheezer/ Dave […]

By Laila Abuelhawa Friday, May 10 at Warsaw was a sold-out show. The weather was warm and on this night, the rain stayed away in our favor. Headlining was The Drums, an indie pop band from Brooklyn! The show started at 9, opening with Tanukichan, an indie band from California. I had arrived just in […]

By Lia Berisha John Vanderslice opened the show for Pedro the Lion at Union Transfer on Tuesday, May 7th. Thanks to WMSC’s ticket giveaway I got to experience his performance. I learned a lot about the opener during the show as he had a Q&A in between songs. He is a producer who has collaborated […]

By Donald Wagenblast When The Devil Wears Prada announced that they would be embarking on a tour to commemorate the ten-year anniversary of their breakthrough album With Roots Above and Branches Below,I was so disappointed to learn that the tour had no New Jersey. However, the band’s connection to New Jersey was too strong to […]

By Ivory Sligh The start of my Marianas Trench concert journey began during my afternoon lunch break on May 3rd when I mistakenly went to the box office to pick up my winning tickets thanks to WMSC 90.3. Being a complete concert novice, I was unaware that you are supposed to pick up tickets at […]

By Lia Berisha Thanks to WCSM’s 90.3 Twitter page I won tickets to see Girlpool, Hatchie, and Teenage Halloween on Saturday, April 28th at Asbury Lanes. The atmosphere at the lanes was very laid back and relaxed with people either bowling or getting their beer n’ tater tot fix. It was like the old Asbury […]

By Jackson Yeake Action Bronson performed at the Wellmont theater on Wednesday April 24th. He was accompanied by Meyhem Lauren, an artist which I had never heard of before. I have only ever been to the Wellmont on one other occasion when I was 10 and vaguely remember it. That being said I was very […]

By Mike Stringham I got the chance to see Deafheaven and Baroness at Starland Ballroom on Friday, April 5th. This was my 10thtime (woo!) seeing Deafheaven live within the last 5 years and first time seeing Baroness, even though I’ve been listening to them since the beginning of this decade. I went to the show […]

By Sam Carliner On Thursday, April 25 I saw Girlpool at The Bowery Ballroom. This was my first time seeing Girlpool and my first show at The Bowery Ballroom. The venue was really nice with a lot of space to move around, but still intimate enough that the artists felt very close. The show had […]

By 90.3 WMSC Radio APRIL FOOLS!! On April 1st, 2019 WMSC announced that the station was switching over to country from alternative! April Fools everyone! This was all a joke!! WMSC Radio is an alternative station and always will be!

By Isabella Ciervo On Wednesday, March 20th, I had the honor to witness Lucy Dacus perform at White Eagle Hall in Jersey City. The venue itself flooded me with awe as I pushed through the concert hall doors. Purple and blue light soaked the audience as one of the wonderful openers, Fenne Lily, greeted us […]

By 90.3 WMSC Radio “WMSC Radio is an alternative station,” said the past! What does this mean? WMSC Radio has switched over the station from alternative to country through deep, heartfelt thought. The world has decided that country is the new alternative! The world is asking for country music, so the station is now switching […]

By Shannon Donaghy Brooklyn’s Market Hotel is a small unique venue right off the Myrtle Ave subway station, so close in fact, that you can see the trains running by through the windows behind the stage. The venue was nothing short of impressive, especially because it didn’t seem like it would be much more than […]

By Sam Flowers   On Friday, February 22nd, Julia Holter performed a concert at Warsaw. A Popgun show presented Julia Holter. The venue really went well with the aesthetic. Julia Holter’s genre of music is Art pop baroque pop ambient, which had gone perfectly with the venue. She had a violinist to open her show […]

By Samuel Carliner On Friday, February 22 I saw Julia Holter at Warsaw. This was a PopGun presents show. Warsaw was one of the most intimate venues I’ve been to which was a great setting for the type of music Julia Holter makes. The opener was Jessica Moss who set the tone by playing the […]

By Brian Lange The band that is Never Going Back to New Jersey played their first show of 2019 at Sayreville’s Starland Ballroom on February 22nd. Less Than Jake are certainly not newcomers to the venue, having performed there countless times in their 27-year history, and are not a tired appearance either. Opening the show […]

By Louis Biondolillo WASHINGTON D.C.–  On Tuesday, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders announced his candidacy for U.S. President for the 2020 presidential election. Although Senator Sanders identifies as an independent, he started a bid for the 2020 Democratic Presidential Nomination. “It is absolutely imperative that Donald Trump be defeated,”  said Sanders in a CBS interview, calling […]

by Mike Stringham On Saturday, January 19th I saw Mineral at Elsewhere in Brooklyn. This show was another PopGun Presents show at their lovely new-ish venue Elsewhere. It was a rainy and snowy night and I was supposed to work until 5pm. That was fine, because Mineral was slated to go on at 8:45pm. Well, […]

by Evan Dekens When St. Vincent’s Masseduction was released last year, critics and fans alike were puzzled. Annie Clark, the art rock patron saint who, in 2015 rose from indie obscurity and into the relative mainstream with her self-titled album St. Vincent, has always thrived on an identity of transformation. Annie Clark, who once graced […]

By Sarah Gregor On December 4th, I saw Kodaline at Irving Plaza. The New York City venue was some place I have never been to, but have heard a lot about because it usually features some more alternative, smaller known bands (which appeals to me). It almost reminded me of The Paramount Place in Huntington, […]

Reviewed by Luke Winnicki The Carter V shows us a matured and consistent Lil Wayne, and a satisfying addition to the Carter series, even after the long wait. This record, originally announced in 2014, sounds like something out of the mid-2000’s. It’s decidedly Bling Era aesthetic is fertile ground for Tunechi. We hear him flowing harder […]

By Mike Stringham On Friday, November 30thI saw Snail Mail at White Eagle Hall. This was my second time seeing the band in the last few months, seeing them open for Alvvays at Warsaw in late September. It was 30 degrees out that night and I couldn’t find parking for a half hour, until I […]

By Mike Stringham On Friday, November 23rdI went to see Death From Above (1979) at Elsewhere in Brooklyn. This was another wonderful PopGun Presents show (they put on an overwhelming amount of cool shows) that I had the pleasure of attending. Ironically enough, I saw DFA in 2014 on Black Friday as well, but that […]

Reviewed by Luke Winnicki It’s hard to say what this new Cheem single sounds like. Here’s my best shot: It’s a mash-up of G-Funk Nujabes and Cap’n Jazz with a Lil Peep feature. The drums have the crisp hit of A Day to Remember mixed with the laid-back swing of J Dilla, while the guitars […]

Reviewed by Cassidy Lunney  It’s official, 2018 is the year of Drake. The rapper released Scorpion, a dual album this past June with hit, after hit, after hit blowing up on all streaming services. Now, Drake appears on Bad Bunny’s latest single titled, MIA not to be confused with M.I.A. The song has heavy Latin influences and roots. […]

 Reviewed by Cassidy Lunney Mike Posner was thought to be a one-hit wonder after the release of the hit song, Cooler Than Me, but since 2009 Posner has been quietly pumping out the jams. Earlier this year, Posner released a 33-song album titled Tear Drops and Balloons but what stood out most was a single released after […]
