Clio Burns, Staff Writer November 22, 2021

On November 10, Higher Ground opened its doors to hundreds of people. They were all piling in to see Sylvan Esso, an electronic pop duo made up of Amelia Meath and Nick Sanborn. The duo, which I was mostly unfamiliar with prior to the concert, put on...

I Love Rock and Roll: Rocking out with Joan Jett & The Blackhearts

Miranda Ljung-Baruth, Staff Writer October 22, 2021

We’ve all heard the iconic title track to Joan Jett's second solo record, I Love Rock and Roll. The memorable stomps and claps in the chorus immediately transport you to a dingy dive bar in the 80s. But I think it's high time people recognize all of...

‘Today Will be Different’: Maria Semple’s not-so-different novel

‘Today Will be Different’: Maria Semple’s not-so-different novel

Anna Huener, Staff Writer December 17, 2020
I picked up Today Will be Different excited, looking for a story as well-crafted as Where’d you go, Bernadette? While Semple’s latest book is witty and engaging in the same ways, it is also disappointingly similar to her previous one.
