Concert review: Hozier brings the power and the glory to the LC

February 28, 2015
It’s incredible how much things can change in six months. Back at the end of August, there’s a good chance you had never heard of Andrew Hozier-Byrne, known by his stage name of Hozier. Back then he was simply an Irish artist about to release his first LP — just another drop in the bucket that is the global music scene in the internet age. Friday night, however, was much different. The golden-voiced yet soft-spoken 24-year-old came to Columbus for the first time to sing to all those fans he’s gained in the past months — and the results were extraordinary. Backed by the success of one of the biggest… Read more

February 26, 2015
Relationships are hard. Can we all agree on that? When two different people try and do life together, there are undeniably going to be sacrifices and compromises. For the lucky ones, the positives outweigh the negatives, and that’s enough to keep them together. For the couple in the film “The Last Five Years,” however, the opposite scenario occurs. Through a compelling he-said, she-said narrative set in New York City, “The Last Five Years” is a film adaptation of Jason Robert Brown’s musical production by the same name.

Restored Cuban relations could affect Ohio State’s study abroad options

February 26, 2015
For more than five decades, there have been no cultural or diplomatic relations between the United States and its southern neighbor, Cuba, despite being separated by just over 90 miles.
