"To lead you into the weekend, I bring you Point Break, a band based out of Duke. The group is very unique consisting of five members including a saxophonist, a lead guitarist, drummer, bassist, and Alex Starr on guitar and vocals.

A genre that is basically untouched in the college scene, Point Break takes songs such as White Panda’s “SteroHands” and adds a little dub. I was only going to add a few songs, but the whole thing deserves a listen because it’s that good. Check out Point Break because they’ve got something special here, enjoy."
