Tennis team finishes season with strength

Both the men’s and women’s tennis teams of Riverside City College concluded their dual meet seasons the way they wanted to: with victories. The men’s team concluded their season with a 7-2 victory over Fullerton in an Orange Empire conference match up. With a victory over Fullerton, the men’s team secured a second place finish in the Orange Empire conference, and received a spot in the regional playoffs as well.

Providing support behind athletes

They can be seen on the sidelines at every sporting event. They are cheering on the team with fervor, handing out water and watching the game with a careful eye. They are also the ones who run out on the field during an emergency. Riverside City College’s athletic trainers are part of the reason RCC athletes are playing their best games every week.

Machinehead mini album packs a big punch

If you’re looking for a definitive heavy metal album for the current generation, look no further than “The Blackening.” The latest release from Oakland’s premier metal outfit, Machine Head, has already made countless “Best of 2007” lists, and has even been said to be a “Best of the Decade” candidate in just a few years’ time.

Electric Six infects the Key Club

“I Buy the Drugs.” “Infected Girls Do It Better.” On the ever-glamorous Sunset Strip in Los Angeles, hundreds of fans have packed into the Key Club, some adorned with t-shirts bearing outlandish statements like these. Each and every one of them is here to see Electric Six, a band just over a decade old that has risen to prominence with their one-in-a-million brand of disco-influenced rock music.

Car enthusiasts feel the heat at ‘Nightshift’

Hot cars, hot girls, hot music at Hot Import Nights: Nightshift. This was the scene at the Pomona Raceway on March 24. Cars from the islands of Japan to streets of the California owned the night and the limelight. Hundreds were in attendance, whether it was to see the cars, watch half-naked women pose scandalously on the hood of a car one could only dream about, or to watch rappers Fabulous and Chingy perform.

‘Muse’ takes the lead

When it comes to seeing a band, especially for the first time, most people tend to favor small venues with a more intimate, up close and personal setting. This was definitely not the case for the arrival of the U.K.’s very own Muse, the experience was still awe-inspiring in the gigantic venue that is The Great Western Forum.
