Sofia Wolfson showcases musical journey during set at Thunder Road

It was a typical Tuesday evening at Thunder Road, one of Somerville’s premier music clubs. Rain fell through the chilly air of autumn’s evening darkness. Located right off Somerville Avenue, the venue is simple enough: exposed brick interior, advertisements plastered on the walls for its famous “Americana Sundays” and a humble stage with a sign donning the club’s name. Around 8 p.m., […]

Field hockey sweeps NESCAC opponents during Homecoming week

The Jumbos had quite a bit at stake going into Homecoming week. Sitting at 5–0 and ranked No. 3 in Div. III, three crucial home games lay before the team: Wesleyan, Amherst and Hamilton. The Jumbos swept the three conference opponents last year and sought to do the same and improve to 8–0, their best start since 2010. Tufts […]

Field hockey continues perfect streak against MIT, Kean

No. 3 Tufts picked up right where it left off last week to continue a promising 2018 campaign with a pair of 1–0 wins against MIT (6–3) and Kean University (4–6). While the box scores reveal tight games for the Jumbos, a stout defensive effort prevented either of their opponents from issuing much of a threat in the attacking third […]

‘BoJack Horseman’ brings a season of powerful self-reflection

The end of the fourth season of Netflix’s animated masterpiece “BoJack Horseman” (2014–) featured BoJack himself with a smile as wide as we’ve ever seen. After 48 episodes of continuous heartbreak, it seemed as though it may finally be time for BoJack and the rest of the show’s cast to begin finding solutions rather than problems. […]

Car Seat Headrest blends old and new at the Royale

Commercial success seems to be the ultimate fork in the road for any artist or band that has amassed a sizable cult following. After years of self-releasing projects on streaming site Bandcamp, lead singer of Car Seat Headrest Will Toledo got his big break, signing to Matador Records in 2015. His next big break came only a […]

Field hockey off to 3–0 start with wins over Babson and Bates

This time last year, the Tufts field hockey team sat at 2–1, with a tinge of disappointment after a tough overtime loss against Babson. With its rematch last Tuesday, the No. 8 Jumbos had a direct chance to exact revenge and get off to a perfect start in their beginning trio of games this season. They did […]

Childish Gambino ends era with nostalgia, anticipation

“This is not a concert. This is church.” Donald Glover — currently, but soon to be formerly, known as Childish Gambino — echoed this phrase throughout his concert at TD Garden on Wednesday night. He led his congregation with fire, triumph and an honest celebration of the rap moniker that led him to this tour. All good […]

Field hockey displays strong defense in shutout of Colby

Tufts began its season in earnest on Saturday, playing its first regular season match of the year in Waterville, Maine against Colby. The NESCAC rivals have played each other on opening day in each of the past three seasons, with the Jumbos coming out on top over the Mules every time. This year proved to be […]

Field hockey to kick off 2018 campaign against Colby

Tufts will begin its 2018 campaign in earnest when it heads to Waterville, Maine to take on conference foe Colby. This season’s squad follows in the footsteps of a 2017 group that was full of talent but ultimately fell 2–1 to Bowdoin early in the NESCAC Tournament and failed to receive an at-large bid to the NCAA Tournament. Last year’s senior class was a […]

Tufts takes eighth in 2017–18 Learfield Directors’ Cup

After a year of achievement, triumph and at times heartbreak for Tufts athletics, the Jumbos finished eighth in the Learfield Directors’ Cup standings for the 2017–18 school year. The Directors’ Cup, which ranks colleges based on their performance in up to 18 sports that must include men’s and women’s basketball and soccer, was won by Williams for […]
