Students enjoy live music: One Sessions show brings local artists to the Live Lounge

The promise of free coffee and music drove students to the AT&T HD Studio, for this night known as the Live Lounge, on Nov. 8.

“It sounded appealing to me,” Eric Brown, junior Mass Communications student, said.

Students got to listen to local artists, Tori Vasquez, Joel Vaughn, and “Archimedes, Watch Out!”. The students got the chance to ask the artist questions throughout their music sets, as well as meet with the artist for a meet and greet session after the show.

Students that couldn’t make it to the show had the opportunity to watch online or to listen to KWTS 91.1, where it was being streamed live.

Students even got to help make the show. The Advanced Video class helped produce and run the show.

The artists who performed in the live lounge said they were excited to get the chance to play at the University.

“We wanted to jump on an opportunity to do something new and fun at WT,” Joel Vaughn, singer/songwriter, said.

The artists were happy to be able to play for the crowd and had fun during the show.

“Tonight was a lot of fun,” “Archimedes, Watch Out!” said on their facebook page. “Thanks to everyone that made it out.”

This was the first ever One Sessions show. The idea arose from One Sessions host, Ricky Mariscal’s summer radio show, The Coffee Shop.

Jessica Wyers, music director, said that she thinks the show went well.

“Keeping in mind that it was our very first show from our brand new HD studio, it was an awesome show,” she said. “I couldn’t have asked for a better first run.”

The crew hopes to do another show during the spring semester.
