Interested in diversifying your music taste and meeting students with a passion for music? If so, the Alternative Music Appreciation Club is perfect for you. The club’s main focus is learning about the history of alternative music. This is done by listening to the “essential albums” of each era of alternative music history. These albums come from a wide range of time periods, which allows students to hear music that they may have never heard before. Another fun thing that the club does is that they host meetups at various concerts, whether they are of major artists or local bands. The first of these events was at the Twenty One Pilots concert on November 4, 2018. This gave the members had a chance to chat with familiar faces and take a group photo before the show. The next meetup will be held on January 11, 2019 at Revolution Live in Fort Lauderdale. The show is titled Take This To Your Grave and will consist of a tribute band performing covers of hit Emo songs from the early 2000s. All students, whether they are members of the club or not, are welcome. Anyone who is interested in the club’s activities should follow @mast_amac on Instagram for event updates and meeting dates.
