Electrify Your Mind With Jack White

Posted by Andrew on August 22nd, 2012

“Jack White is the coolest, weirdest, savviest rock star of our time” said Josh Eells of the New York Times back in April and I can’t argue with him. Being a huge fan of White’s first foray into music with the band The White Stripes, I was giddy like a young schoolboy when news broke of Jack White releasing a proper solo album. (more)

Terriers Start Strong In Hockey East

Posted by Ace Staff on November 5th, 2010

After a competitive 2-1 win over the UMass Lowell Riverhawks last Saturday, the Boston University Terriers are now 6-0-1 overall and 4-0-1 in league play. Junior forward Chris Connolly has provided the go-ahead score in their last two contests, racking up a total of eight points in seven games. They are currently the only team in the Hockey East without a loss as UMass and Vermont struggle to earn their first victories of the season. Many are surprised at the Terriers early success in light of the amount of freshman taking on important roles between Sahir Gill, Charlie Coyle and Adam Glendening. “Losing the seniors and the early departures, we were going to need a lot of contributions from the new guys,” said Connolly. “It’s tough when you come in as a freshman and get thrown right into the fire, but the guys who have been in the lineup have done more than a great job. It’s a testament to them that they’re comfortable enough to step in and play so confidently. That’s only going to help us down the road.” The Terriers are next scheduled to take on the University of Maine Black Bears on Saturday, November 6th at the Agganis Arena. Check back for additional Hockey East updates.  Boston University hockey tickets are now available!

Pavement at the Agganis This Week

Posted by Ace Staff on September 15th, 2010

As one of the most beloved indie rock bands to come out of the nineties, Pavement has made the rounds this year with over forty shows this year beginning with their return to the stage on March 4th in Sydney, Australia. Their highly anticipated reunion tour after 11 years of inactivity created quite the buzz, headlining performances at this year’s Coachella, Sasquatch and Pitchfork music festivals and playing two thirds of their tour dates overseas. Pavement supplemented the announcement of a reunion with the release of Quarantine the Past earlier this year. A compilation of the best-known hits from their catalog as well as many B-sides and rarities, the album’s tracks non-chronologically wind through the span of Pavement’s 10-year career. The hits mostly transpired from 1991’s debut Slanted & Enchanted and their most commercially successful releases, beginning with 1994’s Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain.  The band originally formed to play for a friend’s party, rehearsing to play pop and punk covers in a church. That summer, the young band wrote some folk-oriented original songs for their repertoire and began to tour the West Coast. While the band never received widespread notoriety, a cult following ensued their early work, which helped the post-punk era bloom into full-grown alterative rock. In 1994, Pavement received a couple radio hits without changing their initial sound. (more)

Lady Antebellum at the Agganis Arena

Posted by Ace Staff on July 20th, 2010

After selling out headlining concerts in New York, Los Angeles and Nashville, ACM and CMA Vocal Group of the Year Lady Antebellum are bringing their Need You Now 2010 Tour to Agganis Arena. While the group is touring with Tim McGraw for the rest of July they begin their headlining tour in London in August and come to the arena at Boston University on October 14th with David Nail. Lady Antebellum first took country music by storm in 2008 following the release of their self-titled platinum certified debut album, which yielded the hits “Love Don’t Live Here,” and their no. 1 “I Run To You.” The Grammy Award winning trio’s follow-up, the double platinum album Need You Now (2009), debuted at no. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 chart and has already spawned the multi-week #1 smash hits “Need You Now” and “American Honey.” “Need You Now” has been certified triple platinum after spending five consecutive weeks at no. 1 on the Billboard Country Songs chart and setting the record for 2009’s longest run at no. 1, even crossing over to pop radio stations nearing the top of the Top 40s chart. Their success was confirmed this week by Billboard who certified Need You Now as the runaway best-selling album in the US of 2010, having so far sold over 2.3 million copies, ahead of Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga. Comprised of singers Hillary Scott and Charles Kelley and multi-instrumentalist Dave Haywood, Lady Antebellum began when Scott and Kelley met and agreed to start songwriting together.  They began opening shows for big country artists, as well as earning high-profile gigs in the clubs around Nashville. Since, they’ve taken Nashville by storm, as well as the rest of the country, crossing over country and pop charts and selling out major venues. Lady Antebellum tickets are now available!

So You Think You Can Dance 2010 Tour

Posted by Ace Staff on July 20th, 2010

The hit television dance competition “So You Think You Can Dance” will take its top contestants from 2010 on the road with a live U.S. tour following the season seven finale scheduled to take place mid-August. While Choreographer Mary Murphy stepped down from the judging panel for this season, Mia Michaels took her place alongside Nigel Lythgoe and Adam Shankman. Currently the competition is just heating up, with three competitors left in the running to be the winner. Still on the show are Billy Bell, Jose Ruiz and Ashley Galvan. Although they’ve been eliminated from the Top 11, Alexie Agdeppa, Cristina Santana, Melinda Sullivan, Alex Wong, Lauren Froderman, Robert Roldan, Kent Boyd, Adechike Torbert will all be join the finalists on the tour through the fall. This season some concepts of the show were varied for a more compelling “So You Think You Can Dance”. As the first season in high definition, season seven also marked the first season with live performance shows, like the result shows, doubling the pressure put on the dancers. This season the contestants could no longer choose their dance genre each week, but rather choose a partner, and dance in their partner’s specialized style. Finally the season was to be extended, with one dancer eliminated from the competition each week instead of two. Forty dates are booked for the upcoming outing, beginning September 19 at Lakefront Arena in New Orleans, LA. The coast-to-coast U.S. tour will run for two solid months before wrapping November 17 in Glendale, AZ. The tour will be visiting Boston University’s Agganis Arena on October 11th. This fall’s trek is just the latest for the televised dance competition, a follow up to the fall 2009 tour. This year’s venture will feature the season’s Top 11 dancers and hit about 40 major US cities.
