Why did you choose The Walkmen?

The Walkmen is one of my all-time favorite bands and they just announced in November that they'd be going on extended hiatus. This made me very worried and sad and I thought I'd better do a Bandemonium tribute to them!

Fall Flashback: Interview with Big Dipper

Last fall, I had the opportunity to interview Big Dipper, a rap artist from Chicago who breaks gender and sexuality boundaries with his music. While on campus, he performed at the Cave, conducted a workshop through the Gender and Sexuality Center, and also found a few minutes to sit down and talk with me. Be sure to check out the Cave's website to learn more about the interesting performers who will be coming to campus this term!

KK: Who was Big Dipper before he was Big Dipper?

BD: Well, I was always busy. I went to college for theater, and I moved to Chicago where I was working as a theatre artist: directing, working as a choreographer, and teaching. I was constantly gigging around and doing a bunch of things, which actually really helped prepare me for what I have to do now.

I literally do everything myself, and that job-juggling from my post-collegiate days was really helpful to what I’m doing now.
