Black Panther Screening

WHEN:FRIDAY 8 P.M.-10:30 P.M.

WHERE: EVANSTON12/CINEARTS6

If there is one thing college has taught me, it’s to NEVER pass up free things. So heed my advice and head to this FREE screening of Black Panther, Marvel’s newest superhero movie that reviews are calling “revolutionary.” Hosted by Northwestern University Student Organizations and Activities and Northwestern University Multicultural Student Affairs, you can snag one of the limited tickets from Wildcat Connection or cop one off a really selfless friend.

 

CHICAGO

 

Portugal the Man

WHEN: FRIDAY 7:30 P.M.

WHERE: ARAGON BALLROOM

When you hear 2017 hit “Feel It Still,” you can’t help but jam. The six-man band is a reminiscent blend of indie rock, psychedelic rock, and progressive rock that brings a vibe like no other.

 

 

Hippo Campus

WHEN: FRIDAY 7:30 P.M.

WHERE: VIC THEATER

Hippo Campus describes themself as something that “people really connect with.” The Minnesota-based indie pop-rock band began making music after meeting in high school. Now college-aged, the group has become well-known for their impactful lyricism and just dropped their first full album in 2017.

 

BROCKHAMPTON

WHEN: SUNDAY 7 P.M., MONDAY 7 P.M.

WHERE: HOUSE OF BLUES

Frontman Kevin Abstract said it best when he tweeted “just cause we're not white and some of us rap and like dick and dye our hair and make good music doesn't mean we're not a boyband.” The group of fourteen has been redefining the rap game ever since they came together on Kanyetothe.com (a Kanye West discussion forum/fansite).  They went on to take 2017 by storm with the release of their three-album “Saturation” trilogy (within just seven months) and are now getting ready to take their talent to the Coachella stage.
