Many UVM students are passionate about their music: whether it’s Higher Ground or a house show, we get out to see our favorite bands. We share this love, especially for DIY shows and local musicians. Last week on Sept. 16 we left campus and braved the 30-minute walk to see Cows on the Moon and McAuley Kart and photographed their indie/alternative rock sets.
