Early Eyes: The New Minneapolis Band You'll Want To Check Out

This student band is taking campus and Minneapolis by storm.

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!

This Survey Shows How Quarantine And Drinking Relate, And I Can't Say I'm Surprised

"5 o'clock somewhere" is more of a guideline now than ever.

As it stands, and my friends and I are finally 21. We're extremely excited to be able to go out to bars and "get lit" as the kids say, but due to the pandemic, all of our plans have been put on hold. We'd rather wait and go when it's safe than risk spreading the infection and hurting our loved ones. So, we've all been quarantining apart, getting on the occasional wine zoom call. This made me wonder if anyone else our age were doing the same thing.

Then, I discovered this survey: We Surveyed Millennials And Gen Z About Their Quarantine Drinking Habits — Cheers. Here are 3 things that I discovered through the survey results.

17 Things To Make You Feel GOOD This Week

Because some purchases are just necessary.

Y'all, we're struggling. You don't even have to tell me, I know. What a mess we're all in, right? This year is not going how we planned and the world has turned into one giant struggle bus. I guess you could be super philosophical about everything happening for a reason, but sometimes life is just hard.

There are plenty of ways to bring yourself out of whatever rut you're in. You could go for a run, have a snack, or read a book. Or, if you're really looking for an adrenaline rush, go shopping. This is obviously not going to solve the world's problems with one swift click of the "checkout" button, but hey, it may just give you the little boost you need today.

I Wore A Butt Mask Every Day For A Month, And It's Officially Essential In My Daily Self-Love Routine Now

Thirty days later, my booty's as smooth as a baby's.

- Blissfully unaware that butt-care beyond squats was even something I should be considering in my self-care routine, I tried one of Bawdy Beauty's butt masks for the first time a month ago.

- I've never really given my butt a second though till I took a look at improvements that could be made with the mask — if one of the hydrating, firming, detoxifying, or brightening masks in the kit I received could either smooth out cellulite or tone my skin a bit more, I wasn't going to complain.

- Each Bawdy Beauty sheet mask comes in an individually-packaged sheet, soaked with a serum I massaged into my skin after removing said sheet. The clay butt mask comes in a convenient stick format I simply draw on to my skin and leave to set for about 10 minutes before hopping into the shower.

- I set a goal of committing myself to butt-care every day for one month. Between the regular use of sheet masks, clay masks, and their CBD Butt Balm in between, I didn't have many expectations.

- I thought the whole concept may just be a gimmick, but my butt has never looked so toned in my life, and the cellulite I had is almost completely gone. I wear one every single day when I get the chance.

I'm incredibly skeptical when it comes to marketing ploys and gimmicks in the beauty world. I'll be the first cynic to try out the latest serum on the market every influencer is raving about just to negate every grandiose claim it makes.

Friends, you don't have to be quarantined to use a personal massager, you know? Because, sure, quarantine made for a lot of extra quality time with yourself, but no matter what phase of the reopening process you're in, it's normal and actually healthy to take care of your sexual needs on your own.
