Update: Amanda Palmer “Ninja Gig” @ Eclectic

Update from our last post: Amanda Palmer ’98 continues running around Wesleyan, tweeting her every movement, and linking to Wesleying. HEAD EXPLLLOOODES. The “ninja gig” will be at Eclectic—technically “near College Row”—at 7 pm. Palmer says:

I will be playing at Eclectic (200 High Street) at 7 pm sharp TONIGHT. Totally free, totally open, all ages welcome. Bring food, bring ukeleles, and fermented malt beverages for Amanda Palmer. There is a distinct possibility we will then parade to the Goldsmith Family Cinema for Stop Making Sense. Amanda would also like people to volunteer to make out with her during the movie.



“Real Student Life at Wesleyan University. And ‘N Sync Medleys!”

Audition for Wesleying! Get psyched to join Wesleyan’s premier online-only a capella group by auditioning this Saturday—in person—in Allbritton 304. Come learn about Wesleyan’s sassiest, and most WordPress-savvy, singing group. Bring a song to sing (preferably a 13-16 minute medley of outtakes from Rent), a virtuosic display of shark dance motions, and a bottomless command of HTML. Dress sharp (eyeliner welcome; pixelated costumes forbidden), and dazzle us with your doo-wop backup grooves and crippling carpal tunnel syndrome. Serenade us of site meters and JPEGs, spambots and reCAPTCHAs. Join Wesleying: Real Bop-Shoo-Wop at Wesleyan University.

Let us know if you have what it takes to, um—blog in your underwear. All students and class years welcome. Giant joints, too.

Date: Tomorrow, Saturday, September 17
Place: Allbritton 304 (conference room, third floor of Allbritton)
Time: 4:30 pm

(Note: no actual singing. In the words of Sheek: “All you need is Internet access, the ability to string sentences together coherently, and an interest in life at Wesleyan as it is, was, and might be.” More from past recruitments after the jump.)

Men With Bad Manners at Music House

Howe Pearson ’12 writes in with this ambiguous call to action:

Men With Bad Manners are playing tonight (that’s 9/16) at Music House. The atmosphere within and about their audiences and them has always been full of Jah enchantments. Their joyous sounds are carriages to tangible euphoria that last for eternity. CAUTION: Planning to attend their shows is committing your will and energies to these mad men invested with bad manners. Before you know, and without your consent, you’ll be in the above mentioned state. Perhaps you’ll regret later why you had not known them beforehand. But again, everything comes before you! And Men With Bad Manners will be there on stage before your arrival.

Hear their inconsiderate music here.

Date: Friday, September 16th
Time: 10:00 PM
Place: Music Haus
