Public, the new bar on Main Street, is looking for Wesleyan acts to play gigs on Wednesday bar nights:
I’m writing at the request of my middletown-ian friend, Rob Derosa. Rob runs a CT music label called Homegrown, and has a show on WESU (also called Homegrown) which features local CT artists. He also claims to have booked the first ever off-campus show for MGMT, for whatever that’s worth. maybe you’ve met him– he works at the Red and Black cafe and is often smiling.
Anyway, Rob is trying to organize a “Wesleyan bands” night of sorts at Public, the new bar down on Main Street. these would take place on Wednesday nights. He asked that i write to anyone who might be interested in playing gigs throughout the year. The gigs are potentially paying (although he didn’t specify how much) and will definitely be pretty fun. Anyone with a band/act who is interested should email firstname.lastname@example.org.– Mary Longley ’10
