After a semester of too little sleep and too many assignments, it’s time to celebrate. Happy LDOC, y’all.
Stop Light Observations is bringing their alternative rock sound to Little Fraternity Court tonight, to end spring semester with a bang. It all began with Louis Duffie and John-Keith Culbreth, who met at their guitar lesson when they were 13 years old. Now they’re on a national tour.
“While other kids were playing basketball or football or something, we’d be playing music,” Duffie said. “That just made sense.”
When asked what got him into music, Culbreth said he became obsessed with The Rolling Stones. He said he played “Jumpin’ Jack Flash” in his fifth-grade talent show to win over the heart of his childhood crush. It must have worked, because they’re getting married in two weeks.
Duffie graduated from Clemson University, where he was part of the Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity. He said their parties would typically have live music performed by bands the frat brought in.
