Hogtown Brewers club organizer Mark Tumarkin wrote in an email year, businesses were eager to get involved. Eva Strickland, the manager of Big Lous New York Style Pizzeria, said shes excited to participate. We have a really great variety of craft beers that a lot of people dont know about, she said. The pub crawl is a great way to spread the word. The festival itself will be held dens, 4700 SW 58th Drive. In addition to promoting craft beer, the Hogtown Brewers will also hold seminars and demonstrations. Part of our mission as a homebrew club is beer education, Tumarkin said. People are learning that theres a lot more pleasure in stuff. Lisa Ruderman, a 22-year-old UF public relations senior who will be attending the Hogtown Craft Beer Festival for her second time this year, said shes looking forward to the wider range of craft beers. Tumarkin said the festival will feature more than 65 breweries and more than 200 beers almost double last years offerings. I want to try all of them, Ruderman said.

She said shes expecting to raise more than $150 and collect more than 100 items. Donations will be delivered to St. Francis House, Peaceful Paths and other charitable organizations. Benjamin said she started doing toiletry drives after she ran into a woman in need of supplies at St. Francis House, a homeless shelter and soup kitchen. Although I only had three or four pads, I saw her face light up, she said. I made a difference that quick. Benjamin said collecting beauty products for women helps boost of domestic violence. Being able to take care of yourself gives you a sense of control, she said. Julie Karr, a communications specialist at HealthStreet, said one of the great things about student organizations like BSU is that they increase HealthStreets capacity to collect items.

TAYLOR WIDOMAlligator Contributing WriterMembers of UFs No Southern Accent might soon take their talents to television. The 16-person coed a cappella group is in talks with the associate producer of Animal Planets Ghostland Tennessee and the founder of Smith Multimedia Entertainment LLC, Ben Smith, about starring in a reality show based on the 2012 hit comedy Pitch Perfect. C.J. Wittus, the president of No Southern Accent, said the similarities between the movie and the reality of a cappella life might surprise viewers. They want to present what is becoming a college norm to the public so they can see what its actually like to be part of an a cappella group, said the 22-year-old UF criminology senior. Smith declined to comment, but Wittus said he believes the show subject to UF approval. It would take place in Gainesville and follow group members through the auditioning process, tri-weekly practices, competitions and gigs, he said. After one of the busiest and most Wittus said being discovered by Smith Multimedia seemed like a reward. The group participated in producer auditions with Americas Got Talent, sang on a Royal Caribbean cruise and won ICCA, the International Championship of Collegiate A Cappella. Although Wittus said the group is like a family, some members were not convinced the close-knit dynamic would protect it from the pressures of reality TV. Spencer Jordan, a second-year No Southern Accent member, said reality shows tend to focus more on drama than what the show is actually about.

There are taller drop towers in the U.S., but they are integrated Magic Mountain in California has a 400-foot drop and the Zumanjaro: Adventure in New Jersey will have a 415-foot drop when its constructed later this year. Both of those are attached to other rides. A famous drop tower is the Big Shot, the ride atop the Stratosphere hotel and casino in Las Vegas that catapults riders 160 feet in the air. Falcons Fury stands alone, and Hornick said guests can see downtown Tampa and even St. Petersburg some 30 miles away once at the top. Guests must be 54 inches tall to ride. A circular gondola of 32 seats takes the riders to the top of the tower. Once there, a computer program determines how long the riders will stay at the peak before the gut-wrenching plunge.

theA v enue Read our music review on page 8. THURSDAY, MARCH 27, 2014 WWW.ALLIGATOR.ORG/AVENUE CODY SMITHEven though Led Zeppelin may never reunite, Gainesville residents will soon have the next best opportunity to hear the bands iconic songs live. Get The Led Out, a Led Zeppelin cover band, will play at the Phillips Center for the Performing Arts on Friday. Appropriately dubbed The American Zeppelin, the Philadelphia-based band recreates the music of Led Zeppelin by focusing on the studio overdubs that the original band never performed. When Led Zeppelin performed live, the band was limited by its member count. Even though a recorded song may have included three guitars, the live performance of the same song would have incorporated only one guitar. Get The Led Out meticulously adheres to the recorded music by employing multi-instrumentalists to showcase the recorded music of The Mighty Zep. The live performance chronicles the entirety of the original bands career, showcasing classic hits and deep cuts. Get The Led Out also includes an acoustic set, which features guest vocalist Diana DeSantis singing classic songs such as Tangerine and Battle of Evermore. The band started with singer Paul Sinclair and lead guitarist Paul Hammond playing Led Zeppelin and Aerosmith covers at a monthly gig in a club. As the word of mouth spread of their performances, more musicians wanted to get involved. The other musicians wanted to form a more traditional version of a Led Zeppelin tribute band, with the costumes and wigs and stuff, of which Paul Sinclair wanted no part of, Hammond said. So Get The Led Out was formed with Paul Sinclairs concept of how he wanted to perform Led Zeppelins music. Sticking to the essence of the bands recorded music remains a key component of Get The Led Out. Jeff Beck and Les Paul, he said the band does not attempt to reinterpret Led Zeppelins music. Sometimes when I hear other acts out there performing Zeppelins music and its more of the live loosey-goosey type of thing, it drives me to perform the recorded music of Led Zeppelin more accurately, Hammond said. Were all driven to perfection with this band, so were constantly separating the wheat from the chaff, only in a musical sense. lips Center, though. The band members made their way to Gainesville several years back and were made honorary Gators, Hammond said. You can bet any time the Gators are playing Im rooting for them to win, he said. Tickets are available at the Phillips Center for $10 for students with Gator 1 Cards. General admission tickets can be purchased on Ticketmaster. The show starts at 7:30 p.m.Tribute band will give Led Zeppelin a Whole Lotta Love rock n rollCourtesy to the AvenueGet the Led Out singer Paul Sinclair takes to the stage to perform a Led Zeppelin cover.

But its a jungle out there, and a few appearances. In true BuzzFeed fashion, heres your I-just-needed-bread-and-milkbut-am-scared-of-that-sketchy-gas-station edition listicle of people youll see grocery shopping after midnight: 1) The late-night snacker. This one is a dead giveaway. Theyll be in the ice cream aisle choosing a Ben and Jerrys pint wearing PJs and maybe Uggs with said pants carelessly stuffed in the tops. Who dresses to impress in this place anyway? 2) The vegan chef. Dreadlocks and bandana optional. The with ingredients you cant pronounce and that look so gourmet you wonder how he managed the-mill chain grocery store like this. You spend the whole time waiting behind him at the register wondering if hes going straight home to cook, and if so, why now? 3) The eat, sleep, rave, repeater. This guyll be buying beer. Just beer. Lots of it. The cheap stuff. He may or may not be surrounded with a posse of haggard-yet-happy looking wingmen who just wanna keep the party going. 4) The young professional who works weird hours. Youll be able to pick these people out of the crowd because theyre always the best dressed. They may be toting a satchel or wearing an ID badge lanyard of some sort. Hes the one who takes the company policy of greeting every customer to the extreme and uses it as an excuse to strike up conversations with chicks buying cereeverything OK, just say yes and move on, brand cereal. Maybe one day Ill have my life together enough to do normal things at normal hours. But until then, I guess Ill just make late-night grocery shopping a game and play bingo with this list.

8, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, MARCH 27, 2014 CODY SMITHAvenue WriterIf You Wait, the debut album from British pop-indie collective London Grammar, stands to be one of the best debut albums of the past few years. The group combines the powerfully sultry vocals of singer Hannah Reid and nuanced production from Dan Rothman and Dominic Dot Major to create a truly unforgettable album. London Grammar bares no expense in charging the listener with complex emotion. Much like artists such as The xx and Lana Del Rey, the group effectively weaves ethereal sound design with Reids remarkable voice. Often simultaneously conveying hope, sadness and affection, Reids vocals and lyrics grab the listener and refuse to let go. Although Reids vocals rest at the forefront of London Grammar, Rothman and Majors production perfectly supplement the lead singer. With delicate guitar licks and fragile piano keys at their disposal, the pair of producers provides an essential cap to the groups sound. Rothman and Major favor downtempo instrumentals but carefully add enough variety to abstain from boring the listener. The tracks, while similar in nature, manage to stand apart by functioning as unique songs that sive work. Stand-outs include the philosophical, yet catchy Strong and the creative interpretation of Kavinskys Nightcall. London Grammar represents an exciting addition to the pop-indie genre. Its layering of emotionally charged vocals over ambient production sets a benchmark for the genre. If You Wait only marks the beginning of a very successful career for London Grammar.London Grammar delivers music Leslie Cole is a 21-year-old UF telecommunication senior.

10, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, MARCH 27, 2014 TEODORA YORDANOVAAvenue WriterMeeting new people can be fun and interesting (Omegle, anyone?), but talking to strangers can also be intimidating and awkward. According to a recent Tic Tac commercial, 67 percent of people could use an excuse to meet the person next to them. The statistic was taken from a survey commissioned by the E-cigarette company NEO for National Fresh Breath Day, which reported that 67 percent of men and women ranked bad breath as the biggest dating turnoff. Although offering a breath mint to a halitosis victim could be a useful icebreaker, a number of other conversation starters can 1) Try a Hey, did you hear about? approach. Asking people for their thoughts on current events shows youre interested in what they have to say, and if the topic is interesting enough, an engaging conversation is sure to kick off. 2) Take a lesson from Regina George, the mean girl who had no problem starting a conversation, and compliment someone 3) Theres always something interesting about a foreigner. If someone has an unusual or exotic accent, whats the harm in asking about it? A simple question like Where are you from? can lead to a string of others. 4) How about that weather? Luckily, Florida weather tends to be especially moody. When a freezing, foggy morning turns into a sunny afternoon hot enough to melt the lip balm in your pocket, complaining about the weather is so commonplace, its a fail-proof icebreaker. 5) Comment on food. People love food, and Pinterest proves it. If someone is walking around with a new Starbucks drink or about it. 6) Showing your sense of humor is typically well-received. Even if youre not the best comic in the world, comic relief is always appreciated and even a self-deprecating joke can help a conversation take off.

This New York City native credits her environment for her start in the industry and multiple producers for her pop, folk and indie sound. bum Storyteller, featuring her new single songs relatable and appreciate the albums variety of genres. We caught up with the upand-coming artist, and heres what she had to say: Q. What inspired your new single Black & White? A. That one is about a boy surprise! Well, I was writing it this summer and this was kind of one of those things realize everyone has that person from when theyre a teenager and dont really know on one person. And I think that was kind of my realization that that wasnt actually what I wanted, and I was over it. Q. What sets your music apart from what is out there right now? A. It has a live aspect to it in the recording, theres not really any electronic instruments and a lot of the performances are not literally live from shows but are mostly acoustic, not all, but (majority are) not electronic sounds. And then also a couple things, like Black and White, I did that only with my friends. Everyone was in college, so they all went to NYU. The producer is one of my good friends. Everyone is in school so its kind of fun for us doing it, as everyone is trying to be an artist. Even the producer has his own band. That was kind of interesting to really have something that was all produced by college kids who are still in school. Q. How is it balancing school and pursuing a career in music? A. Im at Brown, in Rhode Island, studying computer science. Its a lot. Obviously it depends on the semester freshman year and sophomore, year there was a lot less work, so I was able to go home on weekends to do the recording, and theres still time every once in a while to go home for a show. This fall, we did a show in Nashville, and I just left for that weekend and did work on the way there and on the way back. Q. What does this album mean to you? A. It means a lot to me obviously because I wrote it all, but its super nostalgic because there are recent ones where Im like, Oh, I wrote that last year, but theres ones from when I was 17 and theyre about my best friend when I was 17 or the boy I liked So its really nostalgic for me when I listen to it and its kind of just like a storybook for me of stuff that happened to me, which is funny to be able to look back. Its like I dont have a diary but if I did it would be this album.Songwriter talks balancing college, musicDruckenmiller Which Divergent faction do you belong in?On the weekends, you are:a.

Unfortunately for Florida, Ben Howland wont be on the visitors bench either. Howland faced off against Donovan three times all in the NCAA Tournament in his 10-year tenure. Florida came out victorious in all three games, the most notable national championship on April 3, 2006. But now that the Bruins have a new coach, Steve Alford, and an entirely new lineup since they last played the Gators in 2011, Donovan said that he is ready to see a new UCLA team. I mean, it doesnt even necessarily need to be UCLA right now ... You have a totally different coach, you have a totally different style of play, you have a totally different philosophy and you have totally different players, Donovan said.

Freshman Justine McLean choice before junior right-hander Mackenzie Audas relieved Turnier in the circle. The pitching change didnt help UCF, as leadoff hitter Kelsey Stewart cleared the bases with a two-RBI double before being tagged out trying to reach third base.
