The Hunt for the Frozen 45 Has Ended 2/18

Feb 18, 2021

The Frozen 45 has been found! Clue-sleuthing-sophomore Victoria put her campus knowledge and our hints together to find the Frozen 45, hidden under one of the six planters outside of the Greenhouse.

Thanks to everyone who took part in this year's hunt despite the fridged temps and a special shoutout to UMD Bathroom Reviews for partnering with us this year! 

Take a peek at all the clues on The Basement's Instagram to see if you would have found the Frozen 45!

The New Standards
The New Standards

Twin Cities trio the New Standards features seasoned musicians Chan Poling (The Suburbs), John Munson (Trip Shakespeare, Semisonic) and Steve Roehm (Billy Goat) For 15 years the trio has been putting a jazz twist on popular tunes spanning the decades. Their annual Christmas shows have become legendary; with COVID-19 making a 2020 live show impossible, the trio instead released The New Standards Holiday Show Album, featuring a mix of classics and originals. Vibraphone player Roehm joined us virtually to talk about the album and share some tunes.
