On Tuesday Nov. 7th Oakland, Calif. native Melina Duterte graced Gardner lounge with her musical project Jay Som. While the wind whirled outside, Jay Som’s genre-bending tunes masterly mixed indie, rock and pop sounds. Some fun stage moments included Duterte asking the crowd “what’s the hot gossip” on campus and when her guitarist asked if there were any history majors in the audience and was met with chuckles. Her most recent album “Everybody Works” features an eclectic lineup with lyrics that vacillate from the deeply sincere to songs that make you wanna dance. Check out a preview of the show from last week’s edition online.
