So Long Solo and open mic night: music in the Clocktower Lounge

 On Jan. 17, Xavier Student Activities Council (SAC) hosted an open mic night in the Gallagher Student Center Clocktower Lounge. Headlining the event was So Long Solo, an up-and-coming acoustic duo consisting of Heather and Mark Miller. Offering exotic hot teas, a variety of tunes and a comfortable atmosphere, SAC's So Long Solo open mic night event was a great success. SAC came in contact with So
Long Solo from the National Association of Campus Activities. Heather and Mark Miller have a great variety of musical talents. They used acoustic guitar, uku- lele, flute and percussion. Mark even played the cello as a guitar in their cover of Ingrid Michaelson's "The Way I Am," showing off their wide range of ability. In between songs, Mark and Heather would share stories of how they met (sometimes awk- ward, yet always cute) and how music plays such a major role in their life and service. The duo is
planning on a trip to Uganda to do service and shared an original song surrounding the Invisible Children movement. The event also showcased some amazing Xavier talent. A stand-out was Patrick Meuller whose cover of LMFAO's "Sexy and I Know It" had the audience grooving and laughing the whole way through. Everyone snapped, clapped and sang along the whole night, cre- ating a fun, tight-knit communal experience. The air of the room was chill, while mild conversations were held by attendees. Everyone en- joyed the herbal teas provided by SAC. The audience was very responsive and supportive of ev- ery act during the night, bringing a sense of community between all who attended. SAC's So Long Solo open mic night was a great night of fun for all who attended. It was an excel- lent night of music and commu- nity, and I feel sorry for anyone who missed out.
