Aly Lathrow Reviews 'Evening Grooves'

Evening Grooves was a virtual concert hosted by student organization Empty Mug Records. It featured 6 different acts, 3 openers and 3 headliners. Of course, because it was hosted on Friday the 13th, something had to go wrong. 

 

The first 5 acts went well, the stream quality was great and the sound was impeccable. Ferris Hill stated off strong with a soulful solo song. Next was Dreamboyshey with a…. interesting… hip hop inspired song. He was laying on the ground for a good part of the set and the audio was mixed a little weirdly. The 3rd, 4th, and 5th sets were all great with a range of brass and acoustic jams featuring SMTD students Madelyn&Logan, Kektus, and Moodswing. The final act, Sabbatical Bob, had some pretty big tech issues. The audio was never stable for their full 20 minute set. You win some ya lose some I guess. There were a good amount of views and the club made $135 to distribute to the artists. Overall a success!
