One of the coolest things I believe DePaul does is hold multiple music events on campus. At the end of the school year, we have a concert called DePaul Fest which has led to musical acts such as Childish Gambino, T-Pain, The Neighborhood, Logic, and many others performing for a price that’s more than affordable for all students. But not only does DePaul give established artists a chance to perform here but up and coming DePaul students as well. I have been to many of weekly events where students host panels and performances all over campus allowing students to perform covers of songs, poetry, and even original material. For instance, this Tuesday, February 6
th at 7 pm to 9 pm yours truly will be competing at the Play 4 Polarpalooza competition where six DePaul musical acts will be competing for the chance to be the opener for the winter concert, Polarpalooza. Don’t worry though this isn’t going to be me plugging myself for an entire blog. I more so just want to let any students know that this campus is a great resource to not only have your music heard by the student population but also start to get your name out there and collaborate with other DePaul musicians. I wish everybody competing the best of luck and hope anybody interested will come out to support not only your favorite blogger but the rest of your fellow DePaul students. You might see an accompanying theme to a lot of my blogs here but the gist is there are a lot of cool things that make DePaul a really great place, so definitely take advantage of them and definitely spread the word!
