Tommorow, Loyola hosts Wale for the traditional spring concert series, Loup Garou! Back in 1999, Loyola hosted its 2nd Loup Garou with a performance by RUN DMC. The 1999 Loup Garou was hosted on October 24th in the Palm Court and student tickets were $7. Below is an essay written by a Loyola student, Becky Dickinson, who was on the committee for the concert. Dickinson describes how much fun planning the concert was. Additionally, she describes the amazing opportunity she had to meet RUN DMC and interview them. Most importantly, she notes the emphasis RUN DMC placed on the importance of educating people on the art of rap in hopes that society will recognize it as a respectable music form. Moreover, RUN DMC argues that rap music can have a positive influence on society. Maybe some of you will be lucky enough to meet Wale at the concert tomorrow, at 8pm, and disscuss the importance of rap music! You never know!
