  1. Hey – so I’ve been raving about the Little Rebellion this semester – telling everyone that it’s essentially on the move to being pretty much it! One thing is sorely lacking, however – as far as I understand, there’s not yet been an article on New Paltz’s only all-faculty punk rock band – Questionable Authorities. It’s not too late do do an article ahead of our May 22, Graduation gig at Snugs! If interested, email me.

    Here’s the band’s facebook site:!/pages/Questionable-Authorities/79476773959?ref=ts

    And here’s the site for our Snugs Event:!/event.php?eid=121363691225771&ref=mf

    Hope to see you there!


  2. Thanks, Glenn! We appreciate the feedback! The newsroom is closed ’til next semester, but that doesn’t mean we can’t cover the band then. Please keep us informed of your gigs — we’ll put them on the calendar of events. (email to: Thanks! Nancy
