Moon Hooch

Moon Hooch captured the imaginations of thousands with its infamous stints busking on subway platforms and elsewhere in New York City: two sax players and a drummer whipping up furious, impromptu raves. This happened with such regularity at the Bedford Ave. station in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, that the band was banned from playing there by the NYPD. The trio's subsequent tours with They Might Be Giants, Lotus, and Galactic as well as on their own have only broadened the band's appeal. Wherever Moon Hooch plays, a dance party soon follows.

Acupressure for Allergies

According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, spring is conceptually related to liver and gallbladder energy. These specific energy meridians focus on moving the flow of energy through your body and releasing it from energetic interference and stagnation. Spring tends to agitate people dealing with allergies, asthma, anxiety or depression, joint pain and weight gain, but it can also be the perfect time to clean, renew and prepare your body for a healthy and balanced year. Join to learn about your body's 12 energy channels and the acupressure points that can help you and your family smoothly transition from winter to summer. This class qualifies for the wellU requirements.

Hurray for the Riff Raff

Hurray For The Riff Raff is Alynda Lee Segarra, but in many ways it's much more than that: It's a young woman leaving her indelible stamp on the American folk tradition. If you're listening to her new album, 'Small Town Heroes,' odds are you're part of the riff raff, and these songs are for you. "It's grown into this bigger idea of feeling like we really associate with the underdog," says Segarra, who came to international attention in 2012 with 'Look Out Mama.' The album earned her raves from NPR and the New York Times to Mojo and Paste, along with a breakout performance at the 2013 Newport Folk Festival, which left American Songwriter "awestruck" and solidified her place at the forefront of a new generation of young musicians celebrating and reimagining American roots music.
