Review: Chance the Rapper tells his story to Ohio State students in energetic concert

October 28, 2014
Chants broke out for Chance the Rapper at the Lifestyle Communities Pavilion. The rapper, whose real name is Chancelor Bennett, performed Monday evening in a concert sponsored by the Ohio Union Activities Board. Tickets to the concert were free for Columbus campus students with a valid BuckID. The performance was sold-out, with more than 2,000 OSU students in attendance. Leading up to the concert, I wasn’t sure what to expect from the audience. The 21-year-old rapper isn’t quite a household name. His biggest claim to mainstream success is arguably his featured verse on the Justin Bieber single, “Confident.” I figured that those who were less familiar with the artist would… Read more

Witches, magic, wolves: Damn the Witch Siren’s imaginative style makes for mystical electro-pop

October 27, 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 every week. There’s nothing like a fresh start, especially when it’s all made up. Columbus electro-pop two-piece Damn the Witch Siren was built on equivalent pillars of imagination, armed with alter egos and a desire to collapse every portion of the arts into one magnificent music project. “I came up with Bobbi Kitten ­­— I wanted something androgynous but feisty and cute, and my friends always called me ‘kitten’ – so I liked ‘Bobbi,’” vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Krista Botjer explained of her stage name. “It’s fierce-sounding.”… Read more

Say cheese: Tom + Chee coming to High Street in November

October 26, 2014
Students looking to stretch their stomachs, but not necessarily their wallets, might get the chance, as High Street is set to get a new grilled cheese and tomato soup shop in the wake of two restaurants closing. Cincinnati-based Tom + Chee is slated to open its doors Nov. 14 at 1980 A. N. High Street, and it hopes to bring students tasty, affordable and natural comfort food, an owner said. ”Grilled cheese caters well to the student population and we’ve got healthy choices,” said Ron Freeman, owner of the upcoming Tom + Chee campus location. Freeman — who also owns the two other Central Ohio Tom + Chee locations in… Read more

Ohio State men’s soccer trounces Rutgers, 4-1

October 26, 2014
In its final homestand of the regular season, things got off to a quick start for the Ohio State men’s soccer team. OSU (7-5-3, 4-2-0) won its third straight with a blowout of Rutgers (5-9-1, 1-5-1), 4-1, in the first-ever matchup between the two schools. Sophomore forward Danny Jensen scored his second goal of the season with a header just 36 seconds into the game. He took a high pass sent from the corner by senior midfielder Max Moller and put it high into the net. Then, in the second half, Jensen wasted even less time before adding his second goal of the night – that one coming 29 seconds… Read more

Ohio State women’s soccer splits weekend matchups

October 26, 2014
While trying to keep its hopes of making the Big Ten Tournament alive, the Ohio State women’s soccer team fell to Iowa, but bounced back against Nebraska. The Buckeyes (6-9-3, 3-6-3) and Cornhuskers (7-9-2, 3-7-2) played to a scoreless first half on Sunday before OSU broke through with three goals in the second. Before the barrage of goals, OSU entered halftime with a 4-1 lead in shots and 2-1 lead in shots on goal. Coach Lori Walker said the team contained the Cornhuskers’ offense through teamwork. “Everything for us recently has just been about taking care of ourselves and not giving away opportunities for other teams to capitalize on,” Walker… Read more

Ohio State volleyball takes down Michigan, Michigan State

October 26, 2014
After defeating Michigan and Michigan State over the weekend, members of the No. 20 Ohio State women’s volleyball team had a brighter outlook than earlier in the season. “We’re starting to believe in ourselves,” senior outside hitter Erin Sekinger said. “We are stepping on the court believing we can take any team and hang with any team.” Against the Wolverines (10-10, 5-5) on Saturday, the Buckeyes (16-6, 7-3) completed a clean sweep (25-21, 25-21, 25-19), a first against a Big Ten opponent at home this season. The Buckeyes were led in kills by Sekinger and freshman outside hitter Luisa Schirmer who each had 12. Senior setter Taylor Sherwin led all… Read more

Joey Bosa cements double-overtime win for Buckeyes against Penn State

October 26, 2014
  STATE COLLEGE, Pa. — The No. 13 Ohio State football team jumped out to an early lead, but relied on a late defensive stand in a 31-24 double-overtime victory against Penn State. OSU (6-1, 3-0) sophomore defensive lineman Joey Bosa knocked down Penn State (4-3, 1-3) sophomore quarterback Christian Hackenberg on fourth-and-five in the second overtime to seal the win Saturday night at Beaver Stadium. “I think we learned that we are a real team, and when adversity strikes we can come together and win a big game in a crazy environment,” Bosa said after the game. After the Buckeyes outscored the Nittany Lions 17-0 in the first half,… Read more

Ohio State seeks dismissal of Jonathan Waters’ lawsuit

October 23, 2014
After remaining mostly mum since being sued by former marching band director Jonathan Waters, Ohio State said it’s seeking to dismiss Waters’ lawsuit. OSU filed a motion in federal court Wednesday to dismiss and respond to the lawsuit Waters brought against the university. OSU said Waters was terminated July 24 because he knew of a problematic, sexually charged culture in the marching band and didn’t address the problems, according to a Thursday release. The filings also say Waters was an at-will employee who was subject to termination without cause. “He knew the problematic culture of the band well, but failed to adequately or appropriately fulfill his obligation to meaningfully address… Read more

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
