Lettuce Brings A Funky Good Time To The Columbia Music Farm [Gallery/Setlist]

first_imgIf it sounds like a party, then it probably is one, because Lettuce has been absolutely destroying their Sounds Like A Party tour this fall. The band is locked in with their psychedelic funk vibes, and this tour has been one of their best to date.Fans at The Music Farm in Columbia, SC were treated to some fresh Lettuce last week, and the show did not disappoint! With smooth grooves of their 2015 release Crush, not to mention classics from their career and a choice cover of Curtis Mayfield’s “Move On Up,” this was a rager in the truest sense of the word. It’s always a party when Lettuce comes to town!Check out a full gallery below from photographer Ellison White (recently recovered after a hurricane related power outage), and the full setlist below. Also included in the gallery are images from BYOG‘s after party at the nearby Tin Roof following the show (with Lettuce bassist Jesus Coomes in attendance), capping off a great funky night of music.Setlist: Lettuce at the Music Farm, Columbia, SC – 10/6/16Set: Silverdome, E-Pedal > Get Greazy, Chief, Blast Off, Dilla, Flu -> 7, Pocket Change, Back In Effect -> Lettuce Go Go, Don’t Be Afraid To Try, We’re A Winner -> Move On Up, The ForceEncore: Sounds Like A Party, Phyllis Load remaining imageslast_img read more

Students to present history projects at SMC

first_imgHamilton said she hopes “the students gain a deeper understanding and an enthusiasm for history.”  “[National History Day] is a good way to engage younger students and get them into history,” said Kelly Hamilton, professor and chair of the Saint Mary’s History Department.There will be a history fair held in Spes Unica for the schools in the South Bend area that participate in National History Day. Students will exhibit their history knowledge with poster board projects, research papers, skits and even student-designed Web sites. “The more these students are taught that history is important to understand, the better. I’m hoping that a real love for history will be one of the real benefits of participating in this competition,” she said.  The program has been held at Saint Mary’s for the past three years and it’s expected to be held at the College in the future. Winners from each age group will advance to the state competition, Hamilton said. If those students succeed at the state level, they will compete at the national level with students around the country. “This is a really good opportunity for our students as well,” Hamilton said. “The nicest thing is our students are really impressed by the level of work they see by younger students.” The Saint Mary’s History Department is sponsoring a National History Day event tomorrow for fourth- to 12th-grade students on campus. Judges include members of the History Department, sponsors of National History Day and two Saint Mary’s history and education students. This year’s theme is “Innovation in History.” Students will be divided based on grade level, and judged on their depth of research and their presentation. Hamilton said National History Day could lead to internships for Saint Mary’s students to help develop history programs at local schools. The competition will take place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. An award presentation will follow in Carroll Auditorium where the winners will be announced.  “We are very proud of hosting [the event],” Hamilton said. “It’s very nice to see younger students interested in history and doing such nice projects. That is what we hoped to accomplish, and it’s really rewarding.”last_img read more
