Review: LA-based DJ Gazzo remained upbeat during his performance and shared plans to collaborate with New York City-based rock group American Authors on a new single.

By the middle of DJ Gazzo's set, only about 20 of the roughly 150 initial people were still around to jam to what was an awesome performance Friday night at The Westcott Theater.

Bring Your Own Vinyl Night, a weekly event at Funk 'N Waffles, draws students and community members to try out a new way of listening to music.

In a world of easily accessible digital music, listening to a vinyl record can be seen as either for older generations or contrarians. The format has seen a resurgence in recent years, but it still carries the mark of an item reserved for only serious collectors and aficionados. To the uninitiated, vinyl records can seem mysterious and a little intimidating.

Rockie Fresh and MTV star DJ Pauly D’s dance party distracted students from the snowfall outside Thursday night at Goldstein Auditorium in Schine Student Center.

The first eager group of students in line were friends Molly Quinn, a music industry senior; April Woltersdorf, a music education junior; and Hannah Smith, an illustration...

The world's biggest DJ showcased his skills at the OnCenter on Tuesday night, supported by fellows DJs Quintino and DJ Tommy Trash.

The line wrapped around the building and stretched down Montgomery Street Tuesday evening outside the OnCenter. Inside, the convention center began to fill with a crowd dressed in neon colors, wacky hats, colorful beads and plastic sunglasses.

The Club Life College Invasion tour headlined by DJ Tiësto had arrived, bringing with it over four hours of vibrating electronic house music, strobe lights and pyrotechnics.

The big name DJ can appeal to everyone and has a chance to be the can't-miss event of the year.

I've been critical of some University Union bookings in the recent past. Campus shows so far this year have recycled some of the artists we've seen neighboring CNY schools bring first or they included acts that failed to excite the masses (either groups were still on the brink or too niche for most).

Singers Karaoke Club in Solvay offers a welcoming atmosphere and fresh alternative to Syracuse night life.

 Go to Singers Karaoke Bar long enough and you might end up working there. That was the case for three Singers employees, all of whom were drawn in by the bar’s fun, welcoming atmosphere.

DJ Carmen Angiolillo (DJ Fixx), maintenance staffer Ryan Naylor, and bartender Sarah “Cookie” Cook started as regular customers but hung around the place so much they were eventually hired. One night Cook threw out a customer acting out of line. Owner Holly Berlin liked what she saw and soon hired Cook as a full-time bartender.

Harrison Willis, aka Big Mouth, wants to scare you.

That's why he wears a plastic alien mask during his DJ sets in the hot, sweaty and crowded basements around Syracuse. With an industrial-age sound bent on pounding rythmic beats, Big Mouth brings an authentic dark euro-club DJ style.

While originally starting off by scratching vinyl records, BLinn is a full-fledged electronic mixer ready to take flight with rapping partner, Kevin Hegedus.

Meet the new faces from the rising DJ subculture on campus.

“In a perfect world, we’d all bump our music as loud as we want.”

That's how Brandon Linn envisions a campus scene that's relatively new, even to him.

The writing program senior is one of a growing number of students who, like many, sits at a computer for long hours working on any given night. Linn’s material, though, doesn’t get presented in front of any class.

Instead you'll find it fueling dimly lit attics, basements and living rooms — anywhere there’s a PA system and some willing partiers.
