Nothing says middle of the school week like going to a concert right down the street from your dorm, especially when Early Eyes is performing.

Several times each year, the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities presents the Arts Quarter Festival. During this festival students are able to request to showcase art exhibitions or present musical, dance, and theatrical performances on the West Bank of the U campus. This last Arts Quarter fest featured Early Eyes as one of its performers.

On October 5th, the band Early Eyes, a "jangle-pop soul" band, performed 8 songs (and 5 "encore songs") at the West Bank amphitheater outside of Ferguson Hall, free for students and public alike.

They featured originals such as "Garden," "Change Your Season," and a variety of other songs, all with a cool, catchy vibe that had the whole audience clapping along or waving their phone flashlights. By the end of the show, the entire audience came out and started dancing alongside the band.

They also covered a few songs like "Cocoa Butter Kisses" by Chance the Rapper and "Valerie" by Amy Winehouse. Two of the band members, Patterson and Lawrence, also featured solo originals entitled, "Tomorrow" and "Baby Blue."

A few audience members at the Early Eyes concert. Around 60 people came to see the show on a weeknight.

The band consists of 4 main members: Jake Berglove, Henry Patterson, Wyatt Fuller, and Des Lawrence. They also have a very unforgettable manager, Faisal Hossain. All of the members attend the University of Minnesota. Their chemistry is hard to match both on and off the stage, as they not only practice together, but consider themselves best friends!

I has a chance to interview all of the members, and asked them each for a fun fact. These are their responses.

Jake Berglove: Singer and Guitarist

"Jake Berglove has a tail."

Henry Patterson: Singer and Guitarist

"Henry Patterson used to use hair gel... A LOT."

Wyatt Fuller: Drummer

"Wyatt calls cheese pizza 'plain pie'."


Des Lawrence: Bassist

"All I care about are cheese curds and sideburns," says Lawrence. (He's from Wisconsin.)

Faisal Hossain: Manager

Faisal attends Carlson School of Management at the University of Minnesota.


Since their concert, Early Eyes released their new original song demo, Change Your Season on SoundCloud and Bandcamp.


Early Eyes had 1,000 plays on their new demo song, Change Your Season within the first 24 hours of its release, and they're slowly but surely approaching 1,000 likes on Facebook.

The group has lots of exciting things ahead, including future recordings, T-shirts, house concerts, and live shows around the area.

I'd definitely recommend listening to their music and liking their Facebook page to see more videos of their music and their members having fun, as well as updates of their future events. The band is also active on Instagram.

Definitely check out their SoundCloud as well, and keep up to date on their social media to see all of the excellent work that's sure to be ahead for this wonderful local group! This is a band you'll want to keep listening to!

50 Quotes from the Best Vines

If you're picturing the vines in your head, you're doing it right

In 2017 we had to say goodbye to one of the best websites to ever roam the internet: Vine. In case you have been living under a rock since 2013, Vine was -(sad face)- a website and app that took the internet and the app store by storm in Winter 2013. It contained 6-second videos that were mostly comedy- but there were other genres including music, sports, cool tricks and different trends. Vine stars would get together and plan out a vine and film it till they got it right.

It was owned by Twitter and it was shut down because of so many reasons; the viners were leaving and making money from Youtube, there was simply no money in it and Twitter wanted us to suffer.

There's been a ton of threads on Twitter of everyone's favorite vines so I thought I'd jump in and share some of my favorites. So without further ado, here are some quotes of vines that most vine fanatics would know.

7 Random Thoughts And Deep Realizations I've Had As A Big Sister

Lessons that sisterhood has taught me.

200
views

I've been a big sister for about 15 years now, and my little sister has indirectly caused me to think about myriad things. Here are just a few that others can surely relate to.

1. I basically got the beta version of Mom and Dad's parenting, while my little sister gets the release version.

2. I'm supposed to be my sibling's role model, but I'm a mess who has no idea what I'm doing. Surely there's someone more qualified out there.

3. I don't pick on my sister because I hate her, I pick on her because that's my God-given right.

4. It's not that my sibling is babied by my parents, it's just that they are treating me like an adult.

5. I'm told I was originally super excited to have a little sister, I wonder what changed. Like what could my sister have done as a baby or toddler that made me go, "no I'm pretty much done with you."

6. Where's my thank you for not making teachers hate my sister solely on the grounds that we're related?

7. Hypothetically, would I like you more if we were full sisters, or do I only dislike you half as much as I could since we're half sisters?

I wouldn't replace my sister with anyone else in the world, I can't wait to see what else she helps me to realize as we get older. She's slow to get the joke, stubborn and is a little tone-deaf, but she puts up with an overly sarcastic, equally tone-deaf me, and I love her.
