    Music fest unites genres

    Now in its second year and fourth installment, Boston Calling has grown into a highly-anticipated staple event in the Boston student experience. Each season the festival adds new touches for attendees, from the addition of an extended 11 p.m. curfew to live installation art and free giveaways, making each concert experience even better than the last. While some elements, like the weather, remain out of the organizers’ control, die-hard fans keep coming back, not only for the musical lineup, but also for the festival atmosphere that reflects the city they call home. Unlike some of the larger music festivals, Boston Calling maintains an intimate feel, bringing together diverse groups of people from around the city to celebrate the cause that binds them: the love of music. This year, The Huntington News counts down the top eight memorable moments of the biggest welcome-back party in the city.

Inside Ambush: What’s the most embarrassing freshman moment you’ve witnessed or experienced?

Fall classes have officially begun and with them come cooler weather, the ability to pumpkin-spice everything, and our annual newest additions to campus: freshmen. Whether they’re getting lost or doing something painfully embarrassing, it’s hard to escape the first year of college without having one of those “freshman moments.” The confusion and mistakes are an integral part of the freshman experience, so it is best for us all to just embrace them. Therefore, we ambushed students around campus and asked them to share with us the best “freshman moment” they’ve experienced so far.

The first one of the day is always a little weak. The floorboards under your mat creak like your knees as they straighten to shoot your pelvis into the sky. “Pedal out your feet,” the instructor says. In the gap between your heels and the mat is every worry or concern from that day. You can and will conquer that gap. Blood flows to your peripheries as your palms press down, claiming the earth. Your downward dog goes from timid and hunched to a tower of strength with your heart at the crown. In the quiet of this studio you are alive. This is the only place you can go and count your breaths and feel the quality of your heartbeat to the rhythm of a soft, crooning playlist. There are no expectations here. The world can stop, if only for an hour.
