On February 14th, 2023, we had our Valentine's Day Coffee House. There were heart-shaped donuts and coffee as our DJs lead games of "DJ Soulmate" in between acts. We filled the Livingston Cafe with live music and covered it in pink streamers for a perfect date with college radio. <3
The evening started with amazing original songs from Zoe, with beautiful vocals and heartfelt lyrics. Find them through their linktree!
Following was The Core's very own DJ Jim, host of Mind Games with James 5:00-7:00pm on Tuesdays. We were serenaded with some soul and good old fashioned rock and roll.
Another Core favorite I've Made Too Much Pasta, playing their songs on guitar and inviting the audience to sing along. Check out their bandcamp!
Jilly took the stage with some originals off their upcoming thesis album! Follow them on instagram and listen through their linktree.
Next up, Eka took the stage with some loveable covers. Follow them on instagram @ekabt.music.
Core DJ Phillip LaBelle took the stage next, reading original works of poetry.
Then we took a musical journey with The Yllat - linktree.
Another student sang their heart out by the name of Zoe! The second of the evening, this time on electric guitar! You can find Zoe on instagram @rennaoz but beware the link in their bio that will lead you to the musical stylings of Rick Astley singing "Never Gonna Give You Up."
The slow sultry tones of Isaac covering artists like Hozier on acoustic guitar. On Instagram @eye_sack21.
To end the night, and at the same to keep the night going was Spicy Stir Fried @spicy_stir_fried! By this time the whole crowd had left their seats, and pushed them out of the way. The Livingston Cafe transfromed into a jazz club as we danced and shouted for "one more song!"
All in all, it was a LOVE-ly night with HEART-felt performances from every one of our local artists. Thanks to everyone who came out and spent their Valentine's Day jamming with our performers and DJ's! For more photos and videos from this event check out @thecorefm on instagram !
