FoCoMX Review: Mike Nickels

Artist: Malai Llama      FoCoMX’s diversity of sound was exemplified throughout Malai Llama’s set Friday night at the Aggie. Their songs ignited through a range of sounds, with epic progression throughout the set. This free form jam band brought fire to the Aggie, with songs evoking a high paced dance party into slow and groovy melodies. The combination of the guitar shredding, bass slapping, drum rocking, and keys groovin’ created a rollercoaster jam experience, complimenting the already stellar jam scene present within Colorado.     The set...

You could look up interviews with Amy Prieto on Popular Mechanics and the BBC. You could search for her feature in The Smithsonian Museum. You could read the press release from her presidential award in 2012. And in a matter of minutes, you would know quite a bit about the battery science that she is working to develop. The battery in your phone, for example, is called a 2D Lithium Ion battery, one of the most popular in the world. But, as most of us know, after about a year or two, that phone battery doesn’t hold much charge. The same thing...

Mishawaka Amphitheatre: 100 Years In and A Century To Go (Collegian Feature)

In commemorating the 100-year anniversary of the Mishawaka Amphitheater, music lovers donned their best 80’s get-up, packed their camping gear and took the 45-minute journey up the Poudre Canyon Friday, March 25th,  to participate in the celebration. Commonly known as the Mish, the amphitheater started out as a simple homestead built by motorcycle venturing musician Walter S. Thompson in 1916. Although it was no easy process purchasing the land from the government, Thompson was persistent. While it took him nearly three years to complete, the...

You don’t need to have studied any amount of Chemistry to know that our world is made up of molecules. But, to know the properties of those molecules? Well that’s a little different. More than one professor on the show has brought up that part of science is understanding the connections between what something does and what that something is made of. Maybe this relationship exists in the form of polysaccharides, our cell language. Maybe this relationship exists in the form of proteins, another component to how cells communicate to each other....

The Innovators: Dr. Chuck Henry

Think about all the things you put on your to-do lists. You need to set aside time for a significant other, family, maybe your pet. You need to go grocery shopping, pay some bills, and maybe you make sure you end your day in front of the TV or with a good book. Do you ever put “Think about pollution” on your list of things to think about?   Chances are that you don’t have to. And chances are that you don’t have to think about what sort of chemistry occurs through-out your body on a molecular level. And chances are that you don’t have to...

KCSU's Favorite Albums of 2015 (Music Director Jackson Hindman)

As one of the music directors here at KCSU I heard an incredible amount of new music that I loved.  Here is a list of what I loved the most: Honorable Mentions Stolen Jars – Kept Ryley Walker – Primrose...
