According to his official bio, “Antoni Porowski is a New York Times bestselling author and star of Netflix’s hit series Queer Eye. As the show’s food and wine expert, the self-taught cook brings with him a lifelong passion for food first cultivated through television, where he was captivated by culinary giants like Julia Child, Jacques Pépin, and Anthony Bourdain, and later honed in restaurants from Montreal to New York and under mentor Ted Allen, original Fab Five food and wine expert. Antoni’s first cookbook, Antoni in the Kitchen, was released in Fall 2019, debuting at #2 on the New York Times’ Best Seller List. Antoni can currently be seen in Netflix’s Emmy Award-winning series Queer Eye, which has won “Outstanding Structured Reality Program” for three consecutive years. In 2020, Antoni and his fellow Fab Five received their first Emmy nominations for “Outstanding Hosts For A Reality Or Competition Program.” Coming up, Antoni is developing a feature film for Netflix with Black-ish creator Kenya Barris loosely based on Antoni’s real-life dating experiences as a sexually fluid man entitled Girls and Boys. Antoni has graced the covers of Gay Times, Out Magazine, Fashion Magazine, and Entertainment Weekly, where he and his castmates were listed among 2018’s Entertainers of the Year. A finalist for People’s Choice Reality TV Star of 2019 and 2020 and winner of Eater’s 2018 #Brand of the Year and People’s 2019 Readers’ Choice Sexiest Reality Star, Antoni continues to connect with audiences the world over. Born in Canada to Polish emigrants, Antoni is an outspoken advocate for LGBTQ+ rights everywhere, especially his family’s native Poland.”

STATIC presents Hippo Campus live in a virtual concert for IUP on Thursday, April 1, via Zoom. The waiting room will open at 7:45 p.m., and the show will begin at 8:00 p.m. That’s no April Fool’s joke!
THIS EVENT IS COMPLETELY FREE and ONLY OPEN TO THE IUP COMMUNITY. No preregistration is required. Join here!
If you would like to submit a question for Hippo Campus to answer live during the event, please email us or send us a direct message on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.
According to the artist bio:“When Hippo Campus formed in 2013, their intentions were pure and simple. “We were in high school and the main idea was, ‘Let’s start a band and make our friends dance,’” Sutton recalls. “There was no real context to what we were doing—it was just total creative joy.” But over the past five years, that context has shifted dramatically. The world around them warped into something bleak and unsteady, and reckoning with mental health issues became more and more crucial. On their sophomore album Bambi, the St. Paul, Minnesota-bred band navigate that upheaval with deliberate self-reflection. The result is a selection of songs that drift into much darker terrain, but unfold with a frenetic yet fragile beauty that makes even the most painful moments feel glorious. Not only driven by exacting introspection, Bambi was also shaped by cultural shifts, including the #MeToo Movement. “That really made us take a look at how toxic masculinity has influenced the way we see ourselves and the world overall,” says Luppen. “In the past we might have been apprehensive about being super-vulnerable, but now we’re more aware of how important it is to come forward about dealing with depression or anxiety. Because if more men are able to do that, they might be less likely to express those feelings as anger or violence.” Hippo Campus approached the making of Bambi with an eye toward the undoing of any distorted, social-media-fueled perceptions of the band. “Social media promotes this weird non-reality when it comes to artists and bands, where they get put up on a pedestal and treated like some kind of upgraded human,” says Stocker. “We’d much rather make community happen with our fans, which is the whole reason we started this in the first place." Partly recorded at Steve Albini’s Electrical Audio in Chicago, Bambi finds Hippo Campus working again with producer BJ Burton (Bon Iver, Low, Francis and the Lights), who handled production on their 2017 full-length debut Landmark. And in sculpting Bambi’s distinctly inventive arrangements, Hippo Campus significantly expanded their use of drum machines and synth.”
