With the opening of the fall semester, an influx of 2015 freshmen flooded the yard in full force, edging out their begrudging predecessors into river houses and the Faraway Quad. Starry-eyed, gaping-mouthed, they wandered around the compound in a frenzy of high-pitched buzz. All ears and eyes flitted quickly from one non-descript identity to another, until they stumbled upon a particularly distinctive and memorable character.
For this series, The Voice has identified five interesting freshies that might be worthy to take note of. Let’s start with…
1. The (In)Famous Pole Dancer
Have not we all met Katalicious from our premature, over-excited Facebook correspondences? She has successfully established her Facebook persona into a sort of Harvard online “hooker” brand, shocking the more conservative peers while earning respect from even the raunchiest upperclassmen with delightful innuendos such as “High school is like a dick : long and hard. Unless you’re Asian.” Sometimes they are outright suggestive like “I cannot fucking wait for Inside Out to hit radios. That song is so orgasmic and it turns me on every time and I will grind the fuck out of any nearby person/object.” Or perhaps shorter and classier pieces like “I love your cock because it sticks up for me.”

Unless you have been living under a rock, are Amish, or were raised by wolves, you must be aware of the phenomenon that is Twitter and how it is taking the world by storm. Everyone from professional athletes to to acne-covered tweens is tweeting, but there is one particular account that caught our eye at the Voice.
The account name is “Harvard Hoochies” and the bio reads that the account holder(s) are “BU biddies, hooching and husband hunting at Harvard Final Clubs. We ward off RUHGs (random ugly Harvard girls)…frequently.”
One gem of a post reads, “when you slip a final club man your number, make sure it’s not on a piece of historical paper with their founders’ story#oopsydaisies” while another boasts, “Owl, ad, fly… All conquered last night”.
BU Biddies talking after a successful night of Final Club raging...

Sad you missed Girl Talk last night? You probably should be. It was probably great. This blogger is a little disappointed himself for skipping it.
But don’t stay sad for long. November is full of great music in the city. Click on the date for ticket info, the band name for band website, and the venue name for venue website.
Beautiful Grace Potter will be rocking the House of Blues on 11/19.
11/3: Monsters of Folk, Orpheum Theatre:
This supergroup is made up of Conor Oberst (aka Bright Eyes), M. Ward, and My Morning Jacket’s Jim James. Those three have been doing the occasional show or recording together for years, but finally have an album out and an official tour.
11/4: Ray LaMontagne, Citi Performing Arts Center:
This raspy singer-songwriter from Maine is probably best known for his single, “You Are the Best Thing.”
11/5 & 11/6: Lotus, Paradise Rock Club:
Lotus is a quntessential jamtronica band, meaning that they fuse live instrumental jam rock with the sounds of dance and electronica. This show is sure to be a party.
11/7: Girls, Great Scott:
This Pitchfork darling will warm up this dark, intimate bar with its fresh sounds from San Francisco. Read the rest of this entry »
