Get your tickets for moe.’s one night event.
Moe (often seen as moe. for stylistic reasons) is playing at Montclair’s Wellmont Theater later this month. This progressive rock band comes straight from New York, bringing their signature sound to our local venue. The show is Thursday, March 30 at 8 p.m. This is a one-night event, so get your tickets now. Expect to be amazed by new trends in rock music.
moe.’s style is that of a jam-band, as their music combines classic rock with personal artistic choices and experimentation. The band started out playing at a local bar in Buffalo, N.Y., in 1989. Since then, moe. has headlined at Radio City Music Hall, toured the globe and played countless music festivals. They have even shared the stage with artists like The Who and The Allman Brothers.

Emma Watson has proven herself to be even more power off camera than she is at Hogwarts.
Gender equality is perhaps one of the most controversial topics that surfaces in our society, as well as in the media. I recently came across a speech by actress, Emma Watson on behalf of the issue. This speech was first given about two years ago at the United Nations Headquarters in New York for the launching of the HeForShe campaign. HeForShe is a global campaign with efforts to end inequality for women and young girls. Emma Watson, who is most famous for her role as Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter series is currently one of the United Nation’s Women Global Goodwill Ambassador.
Watson gave some startling statistics, that now, two years after the speech are still issues:
“It will be 75 years until women are paid the same as men for doing the same work.”
Students at Montclair State University prove that Relay For Life is more than a fundraiser.
Each year, Relay For Life at Montclair State University continues to grow. Tables and tents belonging to each team lined Dioguardi Field’s track as participants walked to support the American Cancer Society. This year, the theme was superheroes, and everyone was encouraged to come dressed up and ready to fight back against cancer. Relay For Life is designed to bring a community of people together to honor those we have lost to cancer, support those who are fighting and celebrate the survivors.
