L.A. Price is a true musician and feels comfortable playing piano, guitar, mandolin and even a little bass guitar. “My style and sound is a folk/pop hybrid—it’s not in a real category. All the different sounds that I’ve tinkered with over the years are meshed into this album. But all the songs still work together as a unit. There’s beat boxing and mandolin on my record. How many records are going to include both beat boxing and mandolin? We even did it on the same song. That’s so different, and it’s really cool.
Opening for Miss Price will be Local Love winner for November 2013, Sarah Mammoliti.
“Take a bottle of college life and a bottle of hip-hop, pour a drink, and that shot is what our music is,” said Abe Alem, K-State alumnus in electrical engineering, who returned to Manhattan on Saturday night performing as one half of the rap and hip-hop duo, F-14.
The other half of F-14 is Wayne Valentine, graduate in audio engineering from the Conservatory of Recording Arts and Sciences in Tempe, Ariz.
“The music itself is a representation of us,” Valentine said. “But hip-hop has a negative connotation, we want to change those perceptions.”
The duo, originally from Manhattan, met in first grade at Theodore Roosevelt Elementary. After college, they moved to Oklahoma for separate jobs, but through a series of fortunate events wound up together again and began making music.
RSBB is back again for another night of smokin blues done like only RSBB can do em!
All our local comics started getting envious of our Local Love Open Mic, so we decided to make one just for them!
Local Laughs will be an open mic format comedy show.
Comics will have 5 minutes to make the audience laugh, and at the end of the night the audience will vote on their favorite comic, who will receive $50 cash and a shot of their choice, courtesy of Aggie Central Station.
Featuring Manhattan alum Miguel Caraballo (of Common Ground, The Rest of Us), Run With It is “the music love child of Bill Whithers and Kings of Leon. Four artists with unique backgrounds creating a musical tension that you just gotta dance to. Influenced by the likes of The Black Keys, Maroon 5, Bill Withers, and more.”
Local dynamic trio Parallel Path will open. “DRUM CHAIR!”
Yup. It’s exactly what it sounds like. Come ready to spell!
