Are you on campus for Senior Week? Are you looking for an opportunity to share a song, poem, instrumental piece, rock band, whatever? Do you want to watch your peers and friends perform for you???
The girls of 14 Fountain are hosting an “Unplugged” Open-Mic Night. Bring your “act” to 14 Fountain at 7:00PM for sign-ups on Wednesday May 18th, 2011. We have a pianist who can sight-read and play most pop songs if you seek accompaniment and a full 88-key keyboard if you would like to accompany yourself. Besides that, we unfortunately will not have any amplifiers, other instruments, or microphones on hand so you need an “acoustic act” or your own equipment.
What: Open [Unplugged] Mic Night @ 14 Fountain//Benefit For The Senior Fund
When: 9:00PM Performance (Come to the show even if you aren’t participating!!!) [7:00PM Sign-Ups/Check-in]
Where: 14 Fountain
Cost: Free but donations will be given to the senior class fund (See note after the jump)
If you’re on campus this week and in the mood for another Wes-based The Band cover band band (see: Zonker Harris), look no further: this one’s straight outta Class of ’06. John Wesley ’06 (yes, really) writes in about “Wednesday on Thursday Night”:
Open to all current students, Wes Alumni, and anyone else. This is a rare opportunity to re-live our collegiate Wednesday nights, while also listening and singing along to live music, paying tribute to the best band ever (“The Band”). We’ll be playing late into the night, so head on down to the ‘Keeper (there will be free shuttles running to and from campus). This is an official Wesleyan Reunion Event and a chance to once again taste the best pitcher of beer this side of the Connecticut River at our favorite Middletown saloon (The Gatekeeper, 73 Ferry Street).
In case you’ve forgotten, or were having too much fun to remember in the first place, TBCBB features these infamous dudes from the class of 2006:
A wild, unticketed, 30-minute “epilogue to Anthony Smith ’11’s time at Wes,” from the man himself:
Come see Sarah Wolfe ’12 and Joshua Margolin ’11 destroy the universe.
Wesleyan’s hottest opera is Opera House Lights. This show has everything–AIDS, machines, a robot bartender who makes you a martini, light, sound, a chorus of houseboys, academics, Eli Timm ’13 in sunglasses, fifteen minutes of nothing but nouns, and a thirty-minute runtime.
It’s a Slim Jim Slam Jam! Come out to Exley and join Skinny Jimmy (Wesleyan’s most attractive all-male a capella group) as we make our second stop (in as many days!) on our Wesleyan University tour! Refreshments will be served–vocal refreshments! But actually, food provided–food for your ears! Let Thin Jimbo wow your face off–for less than an hour, because we are considerate of your time! We also do B’nai Mitzvah. So please come and show us some love, and we’ll show you why they call us Slender James.
Quasi -> Todds ’11 -> our inbox -> this event post:
Come hear Quasi in our last concert of the year!!! It’s your last chance to hear our wonderful, incredible seniors:
Natasha Ye(rihanna)caris Emily We(bareille)iss Tim(berlake) Dodds Max Yurkofs(kanye)y Reu(buble)n Johnson and Timur (Hannibal) Khanachet
sing at Wesleyan before they all get famous (so bring your autograph books and pens!). So take a nice little break while you study for finals to listen to some tunes for an hour or so. We know some of you haven’t met us yet (are YOU that somebody?), but come join us in our circle of life! If ya come round soon, we’ll cry you a river (there may even be sharks in the water!?). And don’t worry, we’ll turn up all of the lights just for the occasion.
Date: May 9 Time: 8:00 PM – 9:00 PM Place: Memorial Chapel Cost: Precious time you could be spending procrastinating by yourself.
