DUKE DAY

“Duke Day,” the yearly seasonal tradition when everyone is treated like a duke! Come freak the hell out in the cafe (because of the weather). There will be juggling, decorations, tie-die, 5 exciting bands, face painting, tarot card reading, magic, fire spinning outside (if the weather is okay), fun, excitement, stenciling, pipe cleaners, and confetti. What better way to spend a Saturday afternoon than hanging out in a safe, warm space? Take a trip! (to WestCo)

Tentative band schedule:
12:00pm Jazz Trio
1:00pm Prometheus plus drum circle led by ace hand drummer Donovan Arthen
2:00pm Joe Jones (perhaps an appearance by Dear Grandma, I Fucking Hate You?)
3:00pm Didj Under Groove (Two Didjes and a drummer, sweet!!)
4:00pm The Ghost of Ben Seretan (short notice cancellation, okay?)

What: festivities
When: Saturday, 12 – 5pm
Where: in the WestCo Cafe (because of bad weather)

    Is not even a little bit of irony ok? Whoever is organizing Duke Day definitely knows where the name comes from.

    From NYTimes article written in 1989:http://query.nytimes.com/gst/fullpage.html?res=950DE7DA1339F93AA25752C1A96F948260“Students gather in McConaughy Dining Hall on a day in late October or early November and beat drums, clang bells and smoke marijuana. The next day there is an all-campus celebration of Uncle Duke’s Day, which takes its name from the writings of Hunter S. Thompson and from Doonesbury, the comic strip of Garry Trudeau, whose Uncle Duke character is noted for his frequent recreational use of drugs, particularly LSD.”
