As the leaves in the Boston Common begin to turn shades of red and orange, Suffolk University is also introducing up-and-coming clubs on the campus scene for the Fall semester. However, one particular student organization is setting the right tone for a promising semester: the Suffolk University Electronic Dance Music Community, or Suffolk EDMC.
“I really wanted to bring that to Suffolk because while we have Suffolk Free Radio and other music-oriented clubs, there aren’t any organizations dedicated to EDM [elctronic dance music] and the many genres it encompasses. It’s really about spreading the music and the togetherness that EDM is all about,” commented Junior Sean Mahoney, president of Suffolk EDMC.
Suffolk EDMC is beginning the semester by semi-sponsoring Illumina at the House of Blues on Lansdowne Street this Friday. Moreover, Mahoney hinted on future events like, “booking a big name DJ to do something like a winter concert,” and, “getting a group of members out to one of the large festivals like Ultra or Electric Daisy Carnival to represent Suffolk EDMC.”
The club’s first move plans to collaborate with other groups for events and shows around the Boston area and really get a presence out there.
Additionally, the leaders of Suffolk EDMC are looking to spread the word about the club by getting a show dedicated to just EDM out on Suffolk Free Radio.
Suffolk EDMC will meet on Tuesdays at 1:30 p.m., room to be announced.
