“I didn’t even know about [the renovations.] I haven’t had any classes on upper campus.”

- Ben Cruz, senior economics major

“I really want a locker. My bag is ripping. It’s so much to carry. I have to put ice on my shoulders. [Art lockers] would be a good investment.”

“I think [the renovations] would be annoying. The working noises could disrupt classes.”

“Being able to go to the [Parkside] dining hall when you wake up is cool because it’s so convenient. If it was delayed, it would be horrible.”

Sir Paul McCartney rocks Los Angeles The former Beatle played tunes that have survived generations for more than a thousand Angelenos. By John Mroch Assistant Diversions Editor

When Sir Paul McCartney comes to Los Angeles to play a free concert, there is no other choice but to go see him play. At least, that was the mindset of hundreds of people Monday night when they heard that the former Beatle would be coming to perform for the city. McCartney treated Los Angeles to a 45-minute set Monday evening after an interview on “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” McCartney taped the interview with Kimmel around 6 p.m. and took the stage at 7:30 p.m., ready to rock LA. The stage was set up in the middle of Hollywood Boulevard, just outside of the El Capitan Theatre. The street was blocked off from Highland Avenue to Orange blocks, which would otherwise be bustling during rush hour, were also cleared for an area for fans to pile into but only if they had a ticket in hand courtesy of “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” way of seeing the show, and they had no problem doing so.

onstage were able to see him up on the big screens located throughout the street. Whether they were lucky ticket holders or stuck watching outside on the street, every audience member and the entire area roared when McCartney took the stage. He played a mix of new songs from his upcoming October release, “New,” as well as an array of Wings hits and crowd-pleasing Beatles favorites. The audience grooved to “Lady Madonna,” belted the words to “Birthday” and shed tears listening to “Let It Be.” McCartney also sung tracks like “Back In The U.S.S.R.,” “Band on the Run,” “Ob-la-di, Ob-la-da” and “Day Tripper,” giving the crowd a full dose of McCartney-inspired tunes.
