Genre: Electronic/Hip-Hop Fusion
Reverb & The Verse is a revolutionary music phenomenon formed in the squarest state, in the shadows of the mountains. The music world likes to stamp genre
labels on bands; R&TV see this as inaccurate and antiquated. They are not hip-hop. They are not electronic. It is both and neither; first and foremost it is
music which smashes up many genres while leaving you singing hooks for days. "Electro-Rap" may get close to capturing the style. If you can't sing it later,
then what good is it?
Reverb & The Verse have four albums to their credit: Retake The Art (2001), Ravenous (2003), Versatile (2008), and the acclaimed D.E.P.T.H. C.H.A.R.G.E.S. (2010). Reverb & The Verse have played Summit Music Hall, the Walnut Room, Benders Tavern, Larimer Lounge, the Gothic Theatre, the Mercury Café, and other area venues.
No RSVP Required. Food and drink are free and are first come, first served. There will also be drawings for great prizes.
How are Wealth and Income Distributed? Exploring U.S. Socioeconomic Inequality
Facilitator: Dr. Jon Leydens (LAIS)
Tuesday, January 22, 12:30 - 1:30 PM, Student Center Ballroom A
Politics and religion are sometimes seen as taboo subjects in U.S. culture, and we might add another subject to that list: socioeconomic class. College is an ideal time to explore socioeconomic class issues, to find out what you and others believe, as well as learn key facts about class trends. Come join fellow students for a safe, interactive yet challenging, discussion-based activity that introduces important questions: How are wealth and income distributed in the U.S.? What are the trends in and significance of such distributions? What conditions may emerge if current trends hold steady?
Buffet lunch will be served. RSVP by Jan 17th to Jessica Keefer at jkeefer at mines.edu or 303.384.2601.
