Open [Unplugged] Mic Night @ 14 Fountain/Benefit For The Senior Fund

Samantha Pearlman ’11 writes…

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)

The Band Cover Band Band, Live at the Gatekeeper

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:

The Hellfire Club Presents “Opera House Lights”

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.

Slender James’ First Ever Solo Show!

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.

  • Where: Exley Lobby (near Pi)
  • When: Tonight at 9
