The Society of Music is in its first year at the College. The Sullivan Lounge will be ground zero for the group’s first concert since their inception.
Admission to the event is free and pizza and refreshments will be provided while three local bands showcase their talents. The Society of Music is using the event to give local bands exposure and also bring student music lover’s together. “Free pizza and great music, that what it’s all about,” Society of Music member Paul LaPointe explains.
Doors open at 8 o’clock and the bands will go on at 8:30. The three bands playing at the event all have some connection to MCLA. Mikes Bakery is a local band including a student from Wheaton College outside of Chicago. Their style is indie rock with an alternative flavor. Kid the Robot, featuring Society of Music member Tyler Bernard also plays a young, high-energy form of indie rock.
Subject to Interpretation is the final band performing at the event. The band includes MCLA freshman and Society of Music member Paul LaPointe. LaPointe is also a DJ at the College’s radio station, WJJW. LaPointe describes the band as “more pop/punk” than the other two bands.
Any students with a passion for music are encouraged to check out the event. “[The Society of Music] is not just for musicians, anyone who loves music and want to help organize concerts like the one this weekend on campus are encouraged to attend,” LaPointe said.
