A combination of old and new, holiday classics and trendy pop artists, here's a Christmas playlist to get you in the spirit for this year's holiday season.
“WARM," like so few other records, is so comfortable with its sound and its messages that it truly sets the listener at ease. In his first original solo release, Jeff Tweedy of indie rock band Wilco puts forth a sad, yet compassionate album.
USC student Tyler Quehl recently wrote and composed the musical, "The Restaurant: Millennial Commentary on Middle America." Produced through the student organization Off Off Broadway, the show is a sociopolitical commentary on the current times.
USC students can experience one of the most mystical Irish dramas right here in Columbia with the Theater and Dance Department's performance of "By the Bog of Cats." The production, written by Irish playwright Marina Carr, premiered in 1998 in Dublin, Ireland, but USC students are bringing the show to campus the first weekend of December.
Charles Dickens's “A Christmas Carol” has been a classroom staple for well over a century, not to mention a popular story to recreate on screen and stage. However, with each adaptation – be it Jim Carrey’s, Daffy Duck's or anyone’s in between – there has remained one unanswered question; where exactly did Jacob Marley’s ghost come from?
Before this semester, I hated Hallmark movies. Despised them. I never understood the need for people to watch hour after hour of poorly written films complete with B-list actors from "that one sitcom" drifting through a predictable plot line. Why do people write these? Why are they so cheesy?
Going into seeing this year's cartoon version of "The Grinch," I had no expectations except to be brought back to many sweet Christmassy childhood memories of one of the most clever Christmas tales to date.
The second floor of Russell House went from a place not only to eat, but to sing during Carolina Production’s karaoke event on Nov. 27.

With finals week just around the corner and the holiday season upon us, now is the time to get out and enjoy time with one another before winter break. Here are some family-friendly holiday events to enjoy around Columbia this season:
In the film industry, mobility is ideal. Triple threat actors are presented with more opportunities, directors don’t hesitate to try their hand at screenwriting and well-known actors use their reputation and wealth to go into production. And, in a rather pronounced role inversion, actors become directors. Everyone wants to be a savant, a guru of sorts. Everyone looks at a screenplay and thinks, “Hey, I could do that,” or imagines themselves in the director’s seat.
I grew up in a town filled with Clemson fans. People either went to Clemson, had a friend or family member who did or just were die-hard Clemson football fans. You knew it was game day when the entire town was covered in bright orange and purple and you could see Tiger paw flags flying in the wind on cars driving by.
Turkey day is just around the corner and Thanksgiving is the perfect time to reflect on 2018. Whether this year you were living your best life or just wishing this nightmare would end, there is still something to be thankful for. Here are some Thanksgiving-themed songs and genuine feel good songs to help reflect on this past year and remember what you're grateful for:
From the Boston Red Sox vs. the New York Yankees to FC Barcelona vs. Real Madrid, the face-offs between these teams tend to come to mind as some of the biggest sports rivalries in history. However, right here at home in South Carolina, everyone knows that the biggest beef of all is between the South Carolina Gamecocks and the Clemson Tigers.
The Brook & The Bluff, a band native to Birmingham, Alabama, is looking to bring groovy harmonies to the Carolinas with a show at New Brookland Tavern on Saturday night. The band has been growing in size and style over the last few years and has gained attention from fans across the region.
Locals in the Columbia area were able to experience an early taste of the holidays on by attending Vista Lights. Vista Lights is hosted by the Vista Guild, an organization in Columbia that oversees the Vista and puts on events in the popular shopping and dining district.
You’ve seen them: short poems, lowercase letters, spare black and white drawings. They pop up on your Instagram or Twitter feed in between prom pictures and vine compilations, you spy them on your roommate’s accursed Pinterest-style vision board and the Tumblr-trendy black and white paperback itself stares out at you from the shelves of Target.
Using the power of words as an underlying metaphor for the strength in every woman, the USC Department of Theatre and Dance will present "Eleemosynary" starting Nov. 15.
“GAME ... COCKS ... GAME ... COCKS.” The roar of the stadium, the bright lights, the tailgating foods galore and watching the team fight for the win at Willy B: This is a Saturday in South Carolina during the fall.
