Folk Festival 2016

Katherine Chavez

The annual Brown Folk Festival took place on April 22nd and 23rd this year at the Pembroke Field House and Lincoln Field, both on Brown’s campus. Amidst early, rainy weather on Saturday, the sun came out to shine on a series of exciting yet soothing performances. B-Side interviewed four of the many groups who performed and discovered that most of them rarely locate themselves solely in the folk genre.

Spring Weekend: Some Thoughts

Jake Goodman

During both days of Spring Weekend, when the phrase “how are you” was converted to “what are you on/how drunk are you,” there was something gorgeous about the madness of the occasion. It was mesmerizing to see all these students who had gone through the college transition process by nourishing their sense of responsibility sweep aside that precious trait in the name of Dionysian debauchery for an arbitrary April weekend. I felt compelled to join in it, to not question why there was a couch in the middle of Wriston Quad or why Natural Lights were freckling the entirety of Brown’s campus; it was a celebration of our home, a way to feel a tangible bond with our mutual environment when it usually exists intangibly.

Like Fall in New England: An Interview with Kristen Jones

Daven McQueen

I really love writing and performing music, even if I don’t get to do it quite as much as I want to. And it’s been frustrating at times for me to perform music and do it, just ‘cause I didn’t start playing and writing till really late. And I taught myself how to play, so I’m not great technique-wise all the time, I just learn by looking up chords and listening to songs and trying to figure it out for myself. But it’s something that I love to do, and I’m looking forward to doing it for a long time and hopefully getting somewhere with it.

That Dude With The Bun: An Interview with Peter Enriquez

Ben Williams

I came in here not as a music major and I was not intending to play much music. I was trying to do something else. Until I conceded to music after I realized that it was the only thing I cared about, my whole dynamic changed at school, and I liked it more. I met so many more people and people who I shared interests with. I really credit the Brown music scene with making me a happy person, but also I drained myself doing it.

The Sons of Providence

Nora Gosselin

With acrobatic stage maneuvers, back-and-forths between the two lead guitars, and belted out blues vocals, Sons of Providence is certainly defined by the ferocity of their performances. “[Performing] is the best part, especially because these guys have been writing for a long time, and I’ve just joined. So to be able to take the songs onstage is super fun,” shares Abeyaratne.

Reorienting Rap: Rhymes with Reason

Katherine Chavez

Through this project, Austin has found a way to combat a variety of societal problems, from the negative stereotypes associated with black men to the discrepancies in test scores and educational resources between low income and high income communities. With his reworking of old and new school hip hop into an educational setting, he has begun to highlight the advanced thought needed to orchestrate a successful hip hop song, contradicting the problematic criminalization of black men and rappers.

Raps From Down the Rabbit Hole

Yasmine Hassan

“I wanted to capture a moment in time. This project is about the experiences that come from leaving home to achieve your goals. With this comes trials and tribulations, love found and love lost, and somewhere along the way you mess around and find out you started knowing yourself. But the craziest feeling is going home, where you can finally see how much has actually changed since you’ve been gone."
