You can all relax now — Virgo season is over, and Libra season is upon us. This list was a bit trickier to write; in the spirit of the season, I had a very hard time being decisive. Libras are a very fun sign: social, aesthetically-minded and acting in the interest of peace and harmony. However, the...

Fall is swiftly approaching, and while summer will always be my favorite time of year, I still enjoy the early changing of the seasons before Chicago turns into a tundra. As we usher in the new season, I’m finding myself listening to new music — and by new, I mean songs that other people have known...

For the first time in 26 years, Riot Fest won’t be taking over Chicago — but don’t fret. An extra day has been added to next year’s already-stacked edition to make up for it. For now, turn on these tunes, close your eyes and imagine you’re moshing with your friends in Douglas Park.  bloody va...

I have to acknowledge it – Virgo season is probably not the most electrifying and interesting time of the year (the Leos and Scorpios made me write that). It’s definitely a demanding and intense season – consider it like the cleanup hitter for the summer (baseball in astrology? What?) – especi...

When I had the idea to write a DeJamz playlist for every zodiac season, it was all building to this: Leo season. You don’t have to guess if you have a Leo in your life; they definitely announced their sign within minutes of meeting you. They are generous, loyal, and exuberant —if not a bit stubb...

Get ready to cry: it’s Cancer season! Like Geminis before them, Cancers tend to get largely generalized with a single personality trait: sensitivity. However, don’t write them all off as crybabies; they have more going on than one may think. They are loyal, intuitive and highly protective of themse...

I’ll say it: Geminis get a bad rep. Even if you’re not super well-versed in astrology, you probably know that they have a reputation for being “two-faced,” which seems like a boring summation of one of the more interesting signs in the zodiac.  Geminis are curious, adaptable, intelligent ...

It’s Taurus season. Don’t mistake the lack of an exclamation point as boredom, I’m just trying to evoke more chill energy; it’s Taurus season after all. Unlike its predecessor, Tauruses are known for having a more laid-back sensibility and a more practical outlook on life. They’re extremely stub...

I will start by admitting that I dropped the ball on my astrology-based DeJamz; Aries season has almost completely come to an end, and I am only now revealing my picks for this slot in the astrological calendar. I’m sure all three of you who read this are quite disappointed in me, but that’s all in the ...

Remember how last quarter I said that spring break was going to go by in a flash and we’d all be back to school in no time? Little did I know that the world was going to end! In all seriousness, living in quarantine has been very emotionally taxing for us all, and it’s always good to turn to healthy d...

Spring break is coming up before you know it, and it will be over before you know it too! While DePaul’s school break schedules may never make sense, I’m still looking forward to my nine days off from school. Here are some songs I intend to listen to on repeat over break. 1. Teenage Dream-Katy Perry I’ve...

And just like that, another astrological season is upon us. In keeping with commemorating each season of the zodiac with its own playlist, this week honors all you Pisces. Pisces are by nature sensitive, thoughtful and introspective; they are often  lost in thought and they definitely remember every ...
