What an amazing weekend I had. On Friday, March 23rd, I went to Philly to attend the Modern Artists concert at MilkBoy, where bands such as The Chain Gang of 1974, The Miniature Tigers, and The Geographers Performed. These guys aren’t “Top 100” artists but they each have their own unique, wonderful sound. Of course, the main attraction for me was TCGO1974, and they did not disappoint.
This past weekend at Princeton University, the Collegiate Star League made its tour to the Northeast by hosting the StarCraft II CSL LAN. Among the teams participating in this tournament included MIT, University of Miami, UMBC, Harvard, Carnegie Mellon, and NYU. The event included an e-sports symposium before the event, with a panel of important figures in e-sports including Alex Garfield of Evil Genius, Duran Parsi of CSL, and Ken Chen of Team Liquid. The entire event was also streamed online via twitch.tv.
The tournament consisted of a best of 5 set between two teams: 2 1v1 matches, followed by a 2v2. Should more games be required, 1v1s would follow. Players are only allowed to play once in a set, except for the “Ace” match or the final game, which anyone on the team could play.

I can’t stop listening to Hold On by the Chain Gang of 1974. All 8 minutes and 9 seconds of the song. They are amazing!
