A blast from the past at The Echo

What were EMU students up to this time of year three, four or even five decades ago? The Eastern Echo was established in 1956 after a long run as the Normal College News, which began in 1881. Student reporters, editors and photographers have worked since then to document the news on and around campus.Launched as a monthly newspaper, The Echo grew in circulation and frequency, moving to publishing three times a week for a while beginning in the 1970s. While the print edition was suspended briefly in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, when the university canceled all in-person activities, the student media team continue to publish through The Echo website. Weekly print editions resumed in the fall of 2021. Flip through the gallery to discover what's changed and what's stayed the same on campus. (Complied by staff writer Shannon Parker)

The Last Dinner Party takes the stage

The Last Dinner Party took the stage on March 31 at the Majestic Theatre in Detroit. The concert began with the opener Miss Grit at 8 p.m. Miss Grit performed multiple songs, with each having different graphics projected across her and the stage itself. She brought soft vocals with robotic audio to her set, and the set just included her and her guitar. The Last Dinner Party took the stage at 9 p.m. and performed songs from their album "Prelude to Ecstasy." The band is made up of Abigail Morris on vocals, Lizzie Mayland on vocals and guitar, Emily Roberts on lead guitar, mandolin, and flute, Georgia Davies on bass, and Aurora Nishevci on keyboard. The band brought forward an energetic set with each member interacting with each other, as well as the audience. The most active member was the lead vocalist Morris, who sold the show with her dancing and overdramatic movements that sold the set as a whole. The show was sold out, with barley enough room for dancing amongst the crowd, but that didn't stop the energy from flowing throughout.
