Dom’s Hustle & Flo

Wednesday, November 25th, 2015
During his visit to Syracuse last week Dominic Waza Scicluna, coach of Detroit Waza Flo, put on a great half time show of soccer skills. We heard he has an album coming out at the end of the week. Next time maybe he'll do a pre-game concert.

Fan Duel

We challenge you to find more rowdy and passionate fans than we saw at the Silver Knights home opener last night. Hopefully, their commitment is also intense.

Groove on the Loose

Dr. James G. Williams, musicologist, at CFAC

We are not quite sure if this was Dr. Williams’ main band, or his last minute, put-together band, but maybe they should be the house band at CFAC.   The quartet, comprised of Williams, along with guitarist Marvin J. Sewell, Ian Stewart on bass, and drummer Joshua Dekaney, found their groove early and often during the “Outlaw Music Culture” performance Thursday night. The house was packed with folk from the SU campus and they showed much love.

The only regret we have is that they weren’t booked in the main gallery, where there are better acoustics, and the perfect view of the the nightscape on East Genesee Street.

Dubious Achievement (or just when did we become Detroit)

Friday, November 20th, 2015

We saw this article by Alana Semuels, which talks about how Syracuse is gaining a national reputation for poverty. On a more positive note, the article contained some great vintage photography by Richard Breland, and recognized the historic achievement of Manny Breland.
