‘Seeds Will Not Replace Us!’ read signs placed in the windows of plain bagel shops across the New York City area, eerily echoing the anti-Semitic remarks chanted by white supremacists this past month in Charlottesville, Virginia. Many traditional cafés have found themselves in quite a qualm, as the influx of bagel shops with a much more vast and diverse menu has left the once dominant, ‘indigenous’ shops on the outside, struggling to bring in business.   “There’s no place for those Rainbow, Seeded, or Colored bagels in this neighborhood,” said Ronald Chump, owner of the New York City-based franchise ‘Chump’s Café. “We know what our idea of the bagel industry looks like, and they are not it.” The outrage comes at a time where our country is divided not only by its inhabitants but by the foods we enjoy as well.

After learning what he made for this performance let’s just say tuition won’t be an issue, while I’m sure a few summer classes and prerequisites will be needed beforehand. The concert saw a very well attended audience, as students filed into the almost 4,500 seat capacity IFCU Arena. An opening performance from 20-year-old Los Angeles DJ ‘Slushii’ who came into the event under the radar, as many students were unfamiliar with the musician. Yet, by night’s end, the crowd found themselves very well aware. His set included an EDM mix of hip-hop, pop, classic rock and even country, appealing to…
