Music is embedded into our lives, and you’re probably listening to music right now as you read this. Are you streaming it through Spotify? Maybe you should be. Spotify is a music streaming service that launched 10 years ago in the fall of 2008. There are many music streaming apps out there, so let’s get into the nitty gritty—just exactly what does Spotify offer? To begin, there are two options with Spotify, free and premium. Both are great, but premium offers much more freedom. With a free account, you’re able to create personal playlists and shuffle play, but it comes with ads, needs wifi and has a few other restrictions. On the other hand, Spotify Premium is ad-free, allows offline streaming, shared playlists, unlimited skips, and high quality audio as well as the free features. A couple of Spotify’s big attractions are the browse feature and discover weekly playlist. The browse feature allows you to discover new music by sifting through hundreds of playlists at your fingertips. Within the browse tab, there is a mood section where you’re able to pick songs based on your mood, and seriously, it’s pretty spot on. The discover weekly playlist is a personalized playlist created by Spotify just for you. It is based off the music you’ve been listening to recently and is filled with artists and albums you may or may not recognize. It’s a great way to find new music, and Spotify does the searching for you. Spotify’s premium version is $9.99/month, $4.99/month for students and $14.99/month for a family plan of up to 6 accounts.

MOVIE REVIEW For many of us, mention of the Hundred Acre Wood evokes vivid
memories of the silly, honey-loving bear in a too-short red sweater who charmed our childhood. Then we grew up, and Pooh became all but forgotten. But whatever happened to the boy who was the Winnie-the-Pooh’s dearest friend? The boy that author A.A. Milne based the stories on? Disney’s “Christopher Robin” follows the titular character into an adulthood that ages Christopher (Ewan McGregor) out of the innocence he knew while playing with the creatures who lived in the Hundred Acre Wood. The film is quick to orient its viewers within the imagination of A. A. Milne with snapshots of his books’ pages and a look at the story setting. Christopher then grows up quickly: he marries Evelyn (Hayley Atwell), conceives a daughter, and goes off to World War I. He finally meets his daughter, Madeline (Bronte Carmichael), upon his return, but finds it difficult to balance family life as a business manager. Enter Pooh—through the liminal door of Christopher’s youth—to London where he implores Christopher for his help locating their friends. While in the Hundred Acre Wood, adult Christopher once again saves the day and, in doing so, reorients his priorities toward family. While the film entertains with physical comedy, it mostly depends upon the audience’s resonance to understand Tigger’s silliness and Eeyore’s forlorn retorts. If you can reminisce about Winnie-the-Pooh, you’ll find the movie humorous. Even still, the animated creatures are a bit bothersome due to their realistic fur. The plot is quickly and effectively revealed, with noticeable symbolism—Christopher and his briefcase, Pooh and his red balloon. Winnie-the-Pooh admirers can enjoy this nostalgic journey back to a place we left behind, but even if Pooh wasn’t a part of your childhood, the Hundred Acre Wood is still a delightful retreat.

REVIEW a time where music is starting to all sound the same IALBUM n and musical identities are being lost within the industry, artist Elijah Blake makes the bold move to avoid those trends, reaching for something more organic in his sophomore album, “Audiology.” Released August 25, 2017, this album encompasses contemporary r&b by combining rhythm and blues, pop, soul, funk, electronic beats and the occasional saxophone to give it a jazz feel.
ARTIST: Elijah Blake ALBUM: Audiology
“Audiology” symbolizes freedom and freeing yourself of any physical or mental baggage you may be carrying around. Through this album, listeners are reassured that it’s okay to feel emotions and have the courage to talk about them. Especially within the black community, since there’s a huge stigma placed on openly sharing your feelings or any traumatic experiences you may have faced. Once Blake pulled away from Def Jam Recordings and became a solo artist, he made it his personal goal to be as transparent as possible through every song. In the album’s last song, entitled “Momma Knows,” Blake talks about being molested as a child and how he has worked to come to terms with that situation. With every word sung, this album draws the listener into Blake’s personal journey and expresses what music sounds like when it’s not being “dressed up” by the industry.

The Grand Stafford Theater is here for all your musical cravings. Per usual, the venue has a few concerts lined up this week if you’re looking for some good vibes and new tunes. Go ahead and plan an enjoyable evening with friends or a loved one in historic downtown Bryan. Food, drinks and a lively concert—what more could you ask for? On Thursday, October 11, the Grand Stafford hosts The Gray Havens, a husband/wife duo. David and Licia Radford pull inspiration from their faith, creating a fusion genre of Christian folk pop. The two musicians began their musical journey in 2013, and thus produced their first EP, “Where Eyes Don’t Go.” From there, David and Licia have been creating harmonious music, their voices layered perfectly to complement one another. The Gray Havens give a lot of credit to a local Chicago coffee shop, Conscious Cup, for being a platform to begin their music career. The duo slowly gained a following, and their acoustic, folk-infused music transcended that local coffee shop to larger venues across the country. Another draw of David and Licia is their relationship. On stage, their relationship with each other unfolds and is emphasized in their lyrics. Lyrics that reflect their love for their faith and their marriage make for songs that pull at your heartstrings. The two sing, “I will love you till the stars turn cold, and I will love you like this ring I hold, yes, around around it goes” in their song “Band of Gold,” which perfectly portrays their dynamic and loving relationship as husband and wife and musical partners. Fans of the Oh Hellos and Tow’rs will love The Gray Havens.

The very next day, October 12, the Grand Stafford Theater welcomes Folk Family Revival and Great American Boxcar Chorus. Folk Family Revival stays true to their name with folk and honky-tonk country beats. Their songs make you want to clap along and stomp your feet to their infectious tunes. The band hails from Houston, Texas, and have been together since 2010. In their capable hands, they manage to make no two songs sound the same but still piece everything together with a distinct and cohesive country/ folk sound. From politics to love to the modern world we live in, the band’s music covers a wide range of topics and emotions. Joining Folk Family Revival is Great American Boxcar Chorus. They seamlessly mix several genres of music into their work without overwhelming their lineup. Instead of generating a hodgepodge of music, they create mellifluous mixtures of country, rock, bluegrass, and gospel. The band is led by Ben Morris and Bucky Bachmeyer. A band of many talents, Great American Boxcar Chorus is known for their ability to engage their audience. Tickets for both shows are $10 advance and $12 at the door, and the doors open at 7 p.m. with the music commencing at 8 p.m.

HARVEST MAROON FESTIVAL at Wolf Pen Creek It’s that time of the year again ya’ll! On October 12, 2018, country bands Turnpike Troubadours and Randy Rogers Band will present Harvest Maroon Fest, with special guest Red Shahan at Wolf Pen Creek Amphitheater in College Station, Texas. Be prepared for live music, food trucks, fun, and nothing but good vibes! Turnpike Troubadours is a red-dirt, six member country band that are known for their lyrical abilities. Founded in 2005, and hailing from their hometown Oklahoma where the wind comes sweeping down the plains, this band has sold out dance halls and concerts throughout their home state and nearby Texas. At the core of this band is their songwriting skills. What makes them popular out of the many red-dirt bands is that they are able to step outside the red-dirt genre and appeal to listeners who may not be so into the honky-tonk country scene. Now hold on to your hats, because Randy Rogers Band is coming to show you what authentic country music sounds like! This Texas-based band has reached the top five billboard’s country album chart with each of their three latest studio releases. After seventeen years of making music together, Randy Rogers Band expresses passion in every song that is played, and allows listeners to relate to their music with each lyric sung. This band has gone from playing in college towns to becoming one of the most successful country bands in the Texas scene. When you go to a show, you know exactly what you’re going to get: genuine country music.
a wonderful night with the College Station community. This festival gives the community the opportunity to experience live music from popular bands on the outdoor amphitheater stage, and offers a taste of what College Station has to offer. Wolf Pen Creek Amphitheater offers a wide array of entertainment options, and this festival puts all of them to good use. The spirit of this festival is one not to miss. With Halloween around the corner and fall in the air, it’s without a doubt you’re in for a good time. Don’t be afraid to let loose and dance along with the beat of the bands. No one will judge you! General admission into the festival is $27.50, or you can purchase a VIP ticket for $250. The VIP ticket includes access to the VIP section with prime stage views, seating, dinner, and private cash bar. General admission and VIP tickets are both limited, so get yours now! But wait, there’s more... A portion of all ticket proceeds will be donated to Stay Texas Strong – an organization that supports Texas families facing the road to recovery following the destruction of Hurricane Harvey. The festival begins at 5:30 p.m. and the music starts at 6:30 p.m.. Don’t be late, cause rumor has it that Turnpike Troubadours and Randy Rogers Band never disappoint.
In addition to two great country bands, Harvest Maroon Festival brings you Red Shahan, a smooth country artist from Bluff Dale, Texas. Shahan has built an audience from the ground up. After years of perfecting his craft, this artist relocated to Fort Worth, Texas, and began focusing on launching a solo career and his debut album “Man and Coyotes” in 2015. Shahan has a pitch unique to many country artists. His voice is smooth, so it’s easy to literally feel what he is singing. Nonetheless, even with Shahan’s growth as an artist, it’s clear that he is still proudly rooted in the West Texas soil. The Harvest Maroon Festival is a time where people can come together and enjoy

McFer r in C en ter fo r En trep r e n e u r s hi p We all have dreams. Some want to be movie stars, while others want to be athletes. Some want to be doctors, and others want to be lawyers. But today, more than ever, people want to change the world. For a select group of students at Texas A&M University, that begins at 3 Day Startup. The McFerrin Center for Entrepreneurship is partnering with 3 Day Startup, a nonprofit that seeks to trigger the entrepreneurial potential in students, to help students pursue their business ideas. The 72-hour event will allow these future entrepreneurs access to tools and resources to kick start their plans, as well as the ability to turn to professors, mentors and business professionals from the area for advice in perfecting their ideas. Blake Petty, Director of the McFerrin Center for Entrepreneurship, says, “These students are challenged to develop a startup in just 3 days, a monumental task even for seasoned entrepreneurs. They’re not here for prize money or recognition, and we don’t have a “winner” at the end of the weekend. They are here because they want to be a part of something bigger than themselves.” The three-day event kicks off on Friday, October 19, with participants brainstorming their ideas and receiving feedback from the mentors. Teams are then formed and startups begin taking shape. The second day shifts to business plans, which include customer discovery, mentorship, intermediate pitches, feedback sessions and business model generation. The third and final day will see the teams finalize their businesses before pitching their idea to a panel of mentors and investors.
Almost every major university in Texas has partnered with the nonprofit, opening up the door for many great ideas and business ventures to enter the world. “You simply cannot duplicate the amount of energy, passion and hard-work that the students invest into their startups during these three days,” Petty says. “At the end of the weekend the teams emerge, a little sleep-deprived but fired up and ready to pursue their startups as real ventures.” Previous editions of the 3 Day Startup have produced countless success stories, and alumni of the program have gone on to create companies and products such as Hoot.me, Partender and Timehop. Hoot.me serves as an educational tool for professors and lecturers to connect with students. The company, founded in 2010, connects student’s Facebook accounts to their Canvas and Blackboard courses, ensuring content posted by the professor is delivered to the student without accessing the course website. Partender is the definition of technological advancement. This software program allows users to snap a picture of a bottle of liquor on the app, then specify how empty or full the bottle is for inventory purposes. According to the product’s website, the program is used by companies such as Mellow Mushroom, Marriott and Hilton, saving their clients up to $10,000 per month.
One of the many remarkable things about 3 Day Startup is that participants can come from any major. Petty says, “Students from all over Texas A&M participate, some of them enter the weekend not knowing what it means to be an entrepreneur. But they dive right in and are hooked after just a few hours.”
Timehop is arguably one of the most successful and well-known creations of 3 Day Startup alums. Founded in 2011, the company started as a way to revisit previous check-ins on the social app, Foursquare. After launching similar programs for Facebook and Instagram, the services merged together to form Timehop. The app has been downloaded more than one million times by iPhone users and is ranked in the Top 200 in the U.S. App Store.
3 Day Startup first occurred at the University of Texas in 2008, quickly growing into its current form by 2010 and expanding across the state, county and globe. Today, high school and college students from every continent can take part in the event.
This semester’s event takes place October 19-21. While applications for the Fall 2018 3 Day Startup event at A&M have ended, interested students should be on the lookout for next year’s deadlines.

Experiment with the Visual It is rare to watch an artist interact with her own work, but Miwa Matreyek is coming to the Academy for the Visual and Performing Arts with this very opportunity. The artist and the animator collide against the screen—and the result is hyper-creative. Her work is presented in two parts, entitled “Myth and Infrastructure” and “This World Made Itself.” She will perform at 7 p.m. on October 11 at Rudder Forum. Matreyek is a performance artist who uses her body to cast shadows against a screen of her projected animations, playing with the disparity between movement and stillness. This two-tiered medium enables Matreyek to help us see our world and our human experience in new ways. She explains, “‘This World Made Itself’ is about the history of the earth, from it’s fiery beginnings, through evolution, to the complex
world of humanity. This piece explores imagining the world around us from different perspectives, a consciousness that is often beyond human.” Of “Myth and Infrastructure,” Matreyek says, “I was interested in cycles of creation and distraction, a feeling of how creativity sometimes feels like magic.” She often moves in a way that is counter to the projected work, so that her physical being interacts with her moving creations to demonstrate the visual possibility of performance art. The artist’s visual creativity, set to a hipster soundtrack, exudes the surreal through her compilations of multiple physical spaces. “I would love the audience to walk away with a feeling like they experienced a dream,” Matreyek says, “something that is ephemeral but almost feels like a first-hand experience.”

Colony House From birth to old age, music is in everyone’s life. For most people, simply hearing and relating to the art is enough; however, there are a rare few who feel a deeper passion. One to create the music for others to hear. Caleb and Will Chapman realized they not only had that passion but the talent to match it, so they founded Colony House, an American indie rock band, who will be featured at the Grand Stafford Theater on Oct. 14.

think we had enough material to pull that off.” Chapman views their first album as one of the band’s biggest accomplishments. After so many years of hard work, their efforts paid off. The album reached No. 154 on the Billboard 200. “The music is much more lyrically based,” explained Chapman, “The material is very personal and based off everyday observations about life and relationships. Because of that, family is a big part of the influence and inspiration of these songs.”
Caleb Chapman, the group’s lead singer, says, “The things that you care about and that you want to see prosper—These things take time and patience.” Taking their time, working on their music with tons of patience is exactly what Will and Caleb did. Colony House’s Drawing musical inspiration from bands such as U2, King of Leon, first studio album was released on Aug 22, 2014, but the group had and even artists like Johnny Cash, Chapman explains the music already been performing together and trying to grow for six years. could be categorized as alternative; however, it is very nostalgic.
