Review: Tune-Yards’ performance a fantastical oddity

October 21, 2014
The performance that Tune-Yards gave at the Newport was a force to be reckoned with. The experimental pop group took to the stage Monday night only months after coming through Columbus as an opener for Arcade Fire. Every member of the band on stage was clad in bright neon patterns and colors — and every one of them wielded a percussion instrument of some kind. They stood in front of a wild backdrop covered in eyes and teeth, eventually donning eyes on their own clothes. Coupling all of this with the lights and the music gave the performance a surreal, alien aesthetic. Merrill Garbus, the spearhead who started Tune-Yards as… Read more

Derrick Rose steals the show; LeBron, Cavs take the game

October 20, 2014
Even though it wasn’t a regular season game, NBA action at the Schottenstein Center was in full swing as the Cleveland Cavaliers defeated the Chicago Bulls on Monday night, 107-98. The player many people undoubtedly came to see — Cavs forward LeBron James — did not disappoint as the Akron native totaled 18 points on 6-of-11 shooting to go along with seven rebounds and six assists in 32 minutes of play. James said playing in front of the Central Ohio crowd was special. “It was great, it was great to be here. It is great to have these fans and for us to put on a show for them,” James… Read more

12 Ohio State students evacuated after off-campus apartment fire

For Samuel Massari, a fifth-year in computer science and engineering, Sunday morning’s wake up call came a little sooner than expected.  “We all were asleep, and somebody was pounding on our doors and windows. We assumed it was drunk kids so I went out to tell them to stop,” he said. That’s when Massari realized there was no joke, but rather a fire that would later temporarily evict him from his off-campus residence. “When I opened the door, there was a guy standing there saying I needed to get out, and I looked behind him and the whole porch was ablaze,” he said. That off-campus apartment fire — which forced… Read more

Construction hinders North Campus businesses

October 19, 2014
One-lane roads and sidewalk closures are prompting some drivers and students to avoid the North Campus area during construction on the residence halls, leaving some local business managers unahppy. Mike Sanda, manager of Noodles and Company located at 2124 N. High St., said in years before the construction started, business would boom when students returned to campus in the fall. This year, however, things are drastically different. “Rather than a 100 percent increase, it has only been a 75 percent increase in sales since the start of school,” he said. Many businesses see an increase on Ohio State football gamedays, as students walk and meet friends before attending the game,… Read more

Ohio State student tackled on field faces $100 fine, counseling

October 17, 2014
About 5 seconds. That’s roughly the time Ohio State student Anthony Wunder spent sprinting down the Ohio Stadium field in the middle of an OSU football game, but that’s all the time it took to land him a court-ordered fine and months of required counseling. Wunder, a fourth-year in mechanical engineering, appeared in Franklin County Municipal Court on Thursday morning on one count of criminal trespassing, a fourth-degree misdemeanor punishable by a maximum of 30 days in jail and a $250 fine. He pleaded guilty to the charge. “He’s taken responsibility for his actions,” said Mark C. Collins, the attorney representing Wunder. “He made the poor choice to go out… Read more

Columbus band Mama ‘destined not to be cool’

October 17, 2014
In an attempt to shine light on local music, The Lantern’s “Columbus’ Own” is a weekly series that will profile a new Columbus band each week. Rock ‘n’ roll changed music forever. It scared the hell out of parents, teachers and politicians, and yanked open the door to new possibilities in music. But as the decades pile up, another musical breakthrough as huge as the ‘60s and ‘70s rock explosion has been substituted with an extensive catalogue of descriptors placed in front of genre roots to portray styles of new bands. Modern musicians are running out of ridiculous adjectives, buzzwords or trends to describe and influence their sound. “We’re not… Read more

Permanent Mirror Lake ducks removed

October 16, 2014
After Mirror Lake was drained last November for a sustainability study, some Ohio State students were left wondering what would become of the beloved ducks of Mirror Lake. Those ducks — which were initially relocated to a farm ­— will not be returning, a wildlife expert said. That’s because most of the ducks, which were relocated using a specialized wildlife management firm hired by the university, were bred for food and genetically too heavy to fly elsewhere, said Dirk Shearer, president of the Wildlife Control Inc. “Those were domestic ducks and offspring of domestic ducks that people had dumped there,” he said. Shearer said that is how the Pekin ducks… Read more
